stopped at my local to see to but not a thing. just same old figures.
then got home and found my shipment from target came in, so worked out. got the 2 figures and the tarkin retro figure with board game.

Yeah well Target cancelled my Luke troopers, and sent me beat-to-hell cards for the troopers.

Thankfully I was wable to pick up both at TRU today.

Did you get one or want one Mike?  I can help.

No I'm all good, thanks though!

Bascially the shipping is like $29 for the first item and then $2 for items on top.  So it starts to make it easier if you gather it all up into one shipment.

I noticed Walmart.ca has their Black series 6" figures all marked down to $19 each.
Which indicates to me that the $5-$10 blow out maybe just around the corner. Like the past three years.


PS - Happy Belated Birthday JJReason!😀👍🎂


Tuesday evening!!!
4lom is now available on Walmart.ca for $19.97 (a harder figure to find, even though it's a year old)
4lom now available $19.97

I was able to order the Han Solo TVC figure from Target today. The shipping cost sucks but if I was able to order from ebay or somewhere else it would cost more in the end. At least that is what I am telling myself. It let me order two figures.
Sadly the 6 inch Luke exclusive wasn't available online, it said out of stock. Maybe it will come back in for order.
I just ordered both:

I ordered one of each! thanks so much. I am going "all in" for this line. Are there any variants/exclusives being made too that I need to be aware of ?

So far just the Target-exclusive Tarkin that comes with the Escape from Death Star board game:
https://www.target.com/p/star-wars-escape-from-death-star-board-game/-/A-75665073

Might possibly come to EB Games? They've been picking up the Target exclusives lately.

This is what I'm hoping for.  Apparently when that happens, the Skus don't get entered into the system as far in advance as the exclusives EB/GameStop get, so it's harder to tell if they will, in fact, get them at all.

One can only hope for the Solo Stormtrooper and the Death Star Escape set.

Another article, with some nice quotes from SW alum:

https://www.ctvnews.ca/entertainment/peter-mayhew-chewbacca-from-star-wars-series-dies-at-74-1.4406094

I disagree with the idea that Chewie and his costume are among the "hokier" elements of the movies. I certainly don't consider Chewie corny or contrived. Chewie rocks!

Sad to see that Mayhew has passed, although his health hasn't been good for a while. RIP, you big walking carpet...

Agreed - the Chewie costume is one of the better ones of all time.  In fact, it was such a good costume it doesn't even appear like on on screen - there's just a Wookie there.

Just saw it - didn't love it.    Just didn't think the story was cohesive, and a lot of time was wasted - especially indulging each character when they all went back to get the stones.  Only one of those scenes I really liked as the Hulk and the Ancient One.  Post Avengers New York scene was completely extraneous excepting of course that I guess it means Loki escpaed?  Otherwise, I feel like they should have just gone to the 70s - the Stark reunion was much better.

Just about everything Thor-related in this film I did not enjoy.  Or at least there was far too much i did not enjoy.  And I loved Thor in every other movie with him in it (Dark World's terrible plot not withstanding).

Finally saw it.

I woohooed out loud when she pulled the dagger-drop.

I'm confused. Can someone spot the difference between these 2 listings (other than the $35+ between the prices):

https://www.amazon.ca/Star-Wars-Droid-Action-Figure/dp/B077XZNNQC/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=star+wars+droid+3+pack&qid=1555639771&s=gateway&sr=8-3

https://www.amazon.ca/Star-Wars-Black-Squadron-3-Pack/dp/B079L79T89/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=star+wars+droid+3+pack&qid=1555639771&s=gateway&sr=8-2

Same set, same seller, different listing and way different price.

The 2nd one is actually a pretty good price too - thinking of picking it up for that.

I bought the 2nd one a couple days ago. It is the red squadron one youd expect. And yeah its a good price.

with you there. I have seen nothing new in Walmart or tru. still have not seen last 2 waves of Black Series figures instore. just the same old stuff. Last thing I saw new was the resistance wave figures and the archive wave 1 at local Walmart. other then that not a thing.

Order...
on...
line.

The last wave was ok (dryden vos is actually the best figure in the bunch), but the wave before was amazing.  Every figure was crazy top-notch - Rio Durant being my favourite.

The one great thing about North American packaging (and not USA vs Mexico/Canada like in years past) is that the product can make it's was from the US to smaller Canadian vendors.  I highly suggest supporting them.

I havent seen him yet. However, with the Palpatine anouncement, I'm gonna save my money and use it on the Emperor with throne.

I was just gonna say - watch Palpatine be super under-produced as he will be high demand. Opposite of Grievous. Par for the course, Hasbro. Kind of like what they did with the new Professor X in the Marvel Legends lineup.

Here's a link for anyone who hasn't seen him yet: https://news.toyark.com/2019/04/10/star-wars-the-black-series-emperor-palpatine-with-throne-341847

There won't be any of these in Canada - I will literally bankrupt myself buying them ALL! MUWAHAHAHAHAHA!

$69.99 seems to be the going retail price in Canada for Grievous. I think those of us who picked him up at EB Games for $39.95 got a great deal. I wouldn't be surprised if they adjust their price later to $69.95 like other retailers.

I saw a couple at EBGames still.  69.99 is a ridiculous price and you can order them from online retailers like Redshift for just over $40.  $70 is crazy.

I wish they were more descriptive in indicating what it is.  I have 2 of the Walmart Mimbans already and don't really need another and I don't collect 3.75" Clone.

I guess I'll preorder anyways and if it's not Han, I can always sell or change my mind and keep.

Same here,
I preordered two today. I already have one TVC Mimban but I would take one more. The Clone I have from the Black Series and don't care for another really.  I hope it might be Stormtrooper Han Solo.     ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

Did the same thing.  Hoping it's Han Stormtrooper since it's a Target exclusive, though it could easily be the Elite Clone trooper in which case I'm not quite as chuffed about it.

Buy houses, pimp them

I did.  I pimped the basement out with packaged Star Wars toys and they look great.  And the ones that didn't look great i made them look great.

I appreciate them both as collectibles and art (mass-produced as it is).  It's my hobby.   How dare you try and tell me how to enjoy it?
