Solo (2018-???) / Re: Kassel Run 3.75" Falcon $65 @ Amazon.ca
« on: March 12, 2019, 03:30:03 PM »

  id say thats def not worth it. walmart just had this thing on sale for 14 bucks. it doesnt come with the figure by the looks of it but its the same ship.

 no word on the Retro line being in Canada i guess ? i should ask the EbGames dude next time i go. the one guy i spoke with last week was good so he might tend to look a little more. i havent heard anything yet.

Scout Report / Re: EB Games Friday Deal

As always, thanks Old Man Ben.
Called last night, a guy at one of the stores verified it as well.
Still nothing on the website.
One hour until 2 of the local stores open!

 i noticed that too early friday morning but i had faith Old Man Ben got official word from someone at his EBgames he goes too :r2d2:

 i got an Enfys Nest and TFA Rey. they didnt have any Rangetroopers unfortunately but they had Snoke,Young Han,Jyn plus the two i got. not too bad. they had lots of rangetroopers awhile back before this sale. i have a feeling other workers are getting stuff possibly before customers can but what can you do :S

 i mentioned to the guy about this not being listed online for sales but he didnt have much to say other then it was listed on his end as ''sw 06 blah blah'' whatever numbers he said but validated what i meant saying you cant even tell what it is. :S lame!

 They are offering the Platinum card for 50 percent off right now if anyone didnt know. i decided to get one cause Yakface and others should be coming sometime sooner then later i hope. they are cool to offer 5 bone VC figures so i figured i might as well get the card and buy some other stuff from them sale or not. i almost feel bad just getting those figs for 5 bucks but i'll take it!  lol

 thanks oldmanben! that was awesome you told us!

  lol. ya, sometimes Paul makes it seem like something doesnt bother him when you can tell it clearly does. that makes me laugh :)

  ya, i wont name names. most i forget anyway cause it changes but there is one person in particular that is one of the worse for stirring the pot and being an all around pain in the butt yet people flock to said person for other reasons that are quite hilarous imo.

 ya, exactly, they are just movies. i see people ripping apart plot lines and looking waaay too much into them. its no wonder you cant enjoy anything if you think that hard about it. i know some of whats happened is obvious but i dont mean that..u know what i mean. its just like that theory that Jar Jar Binks is a sith. ever heard that mentioned ? someone in EBgames said that to me once and i told him whoever told you that did/does too much acid! :D

 i remember what happened with Yakface and i remember him saying at that time he wasnt going to change and not kiss ass etc etc. not in so many words but your right, its awesome he stuck to his guns.

 Sometimes JTA does feel like a place to kiss hasbros ass over and over. other times its not so bad. they were sent a thank you type of document in a frame for promoting Jabbas Sail barge as much they did. i dont necassarily think ''the owner'' lol, is that bad. Sometimes i think they create ''news'' just to get comments etc etc so you do have a point..ive called them out on that btw! a couple times or so that i can think of ;)  a lot of the comments on there are people with nothing better to do and some that forgot to take there meds. whatever though, i dont really care either cause its not worth it.

cheers man!

 i didnt notice JTA was not involved or didnt mention it. i thought they would of when the final votes came up. maybe with all the 3.75'' news this year it felt right to not bother. who knows. so is it even over ? i dont even get it at this point! ha

 ya, usually the votes end up on the official SW site and thats the final vote. it seemed under the radar more this time around. i voted on rebelscum twice and that was it. sw fatigue!

Also, do yourself a favor when you search at bestbuy.ca and click the "Best Buy Only" tab so that you don't get all the garbage results from 3rd party sellers.

aaah, a lot of canadian sites are like that now. were becoming more americanized all the time and it sucks! i noticed US walmart online was like that awhile ago and i had a feeling we would get that way too eventually. well the time is here..amazon,,walmart,,bestbuy and possibly other sites i dont bother with are doing the same things now. its annoying!

That big red fake looking sticker needs to be much smaller.

Too bad it's not actually a sticker. I read that its printed as part of the card.

 ya, you could tell it was printed on. i could anyway, if thats going to be the size thats wrong. someone said its not going to take up half the card but i cant see how if thats what they had on display unless they realized it before it was made for mass production. wont be long till we see. too many exclusives these days

 the GG tvc is exclusive now too. wth! i got two from TRU back in 2013 so that still is awesome. i put a lot effort to get those too. hasbro sucks now. money money money.

 ya, repro weapons is a problem with a lot of people. i honestly dont care about that and even bought some repro off ebay for my loose vintage figs cause they mostly have no weapons. id never try to sell them off as real though either and plan on keeping them for my own display purposes.

 i do have some real ones from the old days and i already thought about making sure i know what ones are what. ha! :) so i get the concern.

 well said! i have a lot of loose vintage figs. a lot from when i was a kid but i also filled some holes from fb groups a few years back. so plenty of real vintage loose but im into getting some of those carded. those MOC are awesome and ill probably just leave them as is and display the real vintage in and around the new fake ones!

 your right i think. it wont really affect anything truely vintage. some might try to rip someone off. i get that but they will be stamp marked so no ones going to get away with that.

  ya, i like them but the worn out look is cheese. i didnt care for that but the rest of it is ok so i looked past it a bit. if that RETRO 'sticker' is that big that sucks too but im still in cause they are cool mostly.

 a worn out band shirt, i get what your saying. i have older tool shirts i stopped wearing cause there too worn out. ive liked them since 93 when i saw them at the 2nd stage at palooza in Barrie,Ont. what an intense experiance! life changing! but a worn out shirt sucks to me ;) nothing to do with all that other stuff. hehe

 ive seen other people commenting it will devalue there true vintage on FB and now here too.. is that all that matters sorta is how much its worth ? O o these are new versions. its still not the same as the originals. i guess some people must of payed way too much for there figures if they feel that way about this new line.

 we might not even get it in canada anyway. dooh! :p

if these are going to be 12 in canada they are going to fly off the shelves. a target exclusive though ? that sucks. someones gotta sell that here or we are getting royally screwed! :S
 
 i like them. Leia looks great! agreed that big red 'retro'' bubble should be smaller. i do wonder what they are up to with this. is it a thought to get rid of SA TVC ? sales permitting im sure. hmm. or just more exclusives for SA tvc and this will take over. unless this is just a short lived thing. i donno

 i like the idea but the real vintage 5poa figs will always be the best. even if these are near identical its still not the old ones so it will never be the same.

JediPatrick has a point too. people bitched about them ditching 3.75'' SA figures and they slowly let it linger around in a lame way, now they throw this idea at us from a new ''vintage'' angle. (if they even put them on Vintage cardbacks) its kind of a back handed compliment or something. if its the only way to make them 10 dollars again then i cant totally complain.

 20 bucks for TVC so far hasnt been working by the looks of it. this might be they only way they can save TVC if thats what they are trying to do. will see what mess they bring this weekend! :D
