How was the Expo?  Was planning on going but instead was in the Walk-in clinic for something... ear infection I hope.

Only real question is was there Vintage Collection figs for sale there?

So here is something I'm trying out for the deluxe Figures.

Speeder Bike with Biker Scout Front and Right
Speeder Bike with Biker Scout Back and Left

The deluxe boxes are too big for me to print on a single sheet (cheaply) - so I did them on two.

PS - for those of you who have a Luke with Wampa.  Look at the back.  Worst. Back. Any Product. Ever.

And the other wall (with some unfortunately stuck behind)

Original Blue and Orange 6-Inch Vintage Collection

The empty space is for the TIE Pilot I'm missing...

Ok so on the first page, I've moved the list of everything I've done there.

It now includes the Orange and Blue series of 6" figures.

Blues ones were tough.  There isn't a lot of design room, and I over extended on both the Orange and Blue to get a little more picture in there, but I also didn't want to cover faces or take too much away from the very open window (a design choice of theirs I liked) so it necessitated some oddities like the movie logo at the bottom for the blue series

Nice find!!! :u:
I wasn't expecting these figures until early 2019.
Canada is on the ball for getting Star Wars stuff compared to the States like never before!
Wow

I still wouldn't expect it till 2019.  Just having the SKU on the site doesn't mean a tonne.  It'll be "Temporarily Out Of Stock" for a while.

Added some SDCC exclusives I have and some BS 6" I want

I was back there again today and the Thrawns were gone.  I noticed some of the of other Hasbro Exclusives were sold out as well (not Aphra or Han though).

Artists Alley is still the best part of Fan Expo - by a wide margin

8
So Fan Expo was nice - got in and out - no lines at the Hasbro Store, and the limit this year was 2. 

Also, Dr. Aphra was $59.99, not $69.99.  Had to double-check my receipt but yup - not only are we getting all the exclusives the USA isn't, but even the ones they do get we're getting cheaper!

Interesting tidbits:

  • They still had some of 2017 exclusives.  And get this: ON SALE. 
    They had Thrawn - Price - $39.99.  Yup- $30 off from last year.  Since that exclusive is literally my most favourite figure in my whole collection, I picked up two.  They also had the speeder (I forget the price - I think 79.99 though) and the Rey/Luke which was also 39.99
  • They didn't have regular figures on sales like they did last year.  There wasn't a Force Friday release so that's not surprising, really
  • EB Games had Wolffes, Solo Chewies and Piett but no Gamorreans :(
  • The line Bypass would have been worthless.  Literally you could get in there and they had all the stock in the pack and you just gave them your list Consumers Distributing style.  It was nice, actually.   It was the best setup for them I think so far - much better than the crowded snake-trail you went through last year.

I imagine the reason they had enough 2017 Exclusives left to put on sale is last year the limit was 1.  They were super stingy last year, wouldn't even let me buy 2 regular Reys.  Seemed to backfire a little.

The extra Aphra I got is spoken for now.  The extra Exogorth is available at cost + shipping to whomever wants it.

The Thrawns I'm holding on to for now.

So, for those wondering what a wall of these looks like:

6 inch Vintage Collection

Bumped to include new custom slipcovers

11
I want the Aphra set. Can anyone help me with one?

Well I'm going on Thursday, but last year they were very adamant about buying more than one of anything at the Hasbro store.  Of course, I just sent in my wife later on to get more (especially since my daughter also wanted some and they were kinda jerks about not letting me buy two Reys).  I'm also going on Saturday, so if they have any I may be able to get a 2nd set.

Long Story short,  PM me on Friday!

got my veers at Tru today. had 8 of them. got the best one I could some of them the hat was really sitting weird on it. lol. also got in about 40 more Captain Phasam ex. Can see them sitting there for a long time. thou the mimban one has sold quite good from what I can see.
was able to get him for 29.99 and scanned at 29.99. even took pic of the sticker in front of it as it was listed at 29.99.

Here is the part where corporate auto-ordering is gonna kill TRU.  Yeah - the Phasma's sold like hotcakes because people were buying them for our US brethren (eBay or otherwise) but that gravy train is gone.  Everyone already got theirs.  UNtil they go on clearance that space is gonna be filled with Phasma, all the while anyone looking at sales stats is wondering why the drop off.  Everyone BUT Toys R Us will know.

It's funny when you think about it.  In the old days, it was basically impossible for consumers to know more than product managers.  Now, in a lot of industries, anything that is not trending, the consumers know far more than the retail or distribution chains.

If anyone still needs it the BS6 Amazon exclusive First Order Trooper with gear, he is currently $25.20 exclusively for prime members. It is a nice package, I got one at Christmas.

If they had made that a OT Stormtrooper instead of FO, I think it would have sold out at the price.  It is a nice package - the OT stormtrooper deserves the same treatment.

Well, I've finally finished the first 88.  Here's links for all of them, if you'd like a look
