My nephew found a pile of 6" BS General Grievous D1 at the local TRU - SKU 406411. They scanned at 69.99! WTH TRU?

lol, I was sold on it just for the vintage card.  But glad it's not just a complete repack...also, knowing how many they have, I'm wondering how long this will take to show up in the $5 Friday deals..
That would be nice.  I would definitely try to grab a squad worth at $5.  :u:

The helmet is also hard plastic and the head features the digital face printing technology.
Oh yeah, the digital face printing. I forgot Woo.  :mad0218:

Is this just a straight repack of the orange stripe black series clone (#12)?
It is yes. Although I have both paint variants of the black series clone, where one variant has more solid grey colour applications and I thought this new TVC figure would be identical.  However this newer Clone has even more solid colour grey apps to it then the black series variant does ( in the mid section inpiticular).  So I guess it's new enough plus the card art.

Just picked mine up an hour ago. Nice card art, and nice fig.  I preordered two, not totally sure what figure would come (Han Stormie, ROTJ Lando etc.) but ended up just grabbing one since I already have some of these from 3.75 black series.

It looks like, for some of the exclusives, they are doing a lottery. This includes the Hasbro Darth Maul and Obi-Wan, as well as the Funko and Lego exclusives for the show. I have signed up for them - not sure how many you can get, but if I can get extras, please PM me and let me know and I will get them for people - first come, first served.

They are also doing a lottery for the big panels. Hopefully I get a spot in them, but we don't find out until April 4th. Wish me luck! :)`
MASSIVE BIG Good Luck Brian!

If you feel like gambling,  eBay seller from China is selling JABBAS play set TVC with Han and yee Rees for $11 usd with free shipping.
I took a stab at it, eBay will protect you for like 30 days or so ( I think). So use caution if you can't afford to lose it!

Link:

Update. I removed the link, as eBay sent me a message this morning that they removed the sellers site.

When I asked my EBgames manager yesterday, what new Star Wars is in your system?  She read off many things I was already aware of , but one of the items she said was "STORMTROOPER HELMET". But at the moment, I was thinking it was their Red stormie helmet and didn't think much of it.  But she DEFFINITLEY said Stormtrooper helmet preorder.  :P

Have people seen this yet?

https://www.ebgames.ca/Toys-Collectibles/Games/763031/star-wars-the-vintage-collection-jabba-s-tatooine-skiff-collectible-vehicle
I had made a couple online preorders at EBgames.ca for the skiffs about a month ago.  Pretty sure is was mentioned, but doesent hurt to get the word out. 😀
I have a feeling this will be available at Tru, Wally, EBgames, indigo, etc. Come the Fall.

The Vintage Collection (TVC) / Re: TVC - Jabba's sail Barge!!!!!
« on: March 23, 2019, 05:14:34 PM »
I have been setting up my barge for the last few days.  One feature I discovered on mine is that the jail door only opens halfway when you pul the tab to the right.
I watched two videos on You Tube last night where they were reviewing their barges.  On one the jail door opened halfway just like mine.  On the other it opened completely.
I wish mine did but I am reluctant to force it.  It might jam or even break.
If you have opened your barge, please let me know how your jail door works.
OMB, I have heard of this so many times from the Americans via a Facebook group called "webackedthebarge". There are a couple thousand backers on there.  Any way, when I tried mine, like almost every buddy else's mine stuck half way.  But I have watched many videos already and I can assure you , the door opens further.  It opens about 2/3 the way, until you can't see the main middle jail door moulded on the slider door.  Use two hands, left hand in the jail cell lightly pushing and right hand on the right side lightly pulling.
But until you see videos or get confirmation on any item on the barge that it does indeed open, swing, clip in , etc. etc.  Don't chance it.   For example the door hatch on the outside of the barge where Luke and weequay meet and weequay gets thrown overboard, I heard that this door hinge snaps off easily and on my barge I'm afraid to open it because it looks like it will snap off.
Good luck!

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.     ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

Yes! I found mine in excellent condition aswell.  Same with my yakface carded figure. It does the widely reported faint semi circle in the top right corner, but I'm ok with it, it's becoming a thing for this figure. Kind of a provedonce of the barge yak.

After 4 long hours....I finally finished inspecting all 4 of my barges....my only small complaint is the yak face figures are not as eye appealing as I thought they would be....the bubbles look as though they were re-glued several times to the card. It looks too glue-y.

(I'm sad I didn't buy a 5th one...'sigh')
I know right.  I wish I had ordered few more now aswell, lol.  But I remember a year ago, and generally the conversation went " why would you buy more then one?". And now wife and friends are like "why didn't you buy 10 or more". Lol
Hindsight is 20/20.
Good on you Ian to have the forsite to get as many as you did, and you helped the 5000 backers cause.  :u:
