I will buy it most likely.

If I remember correctly shipping was included with the Barge (and you didn't pay custom fees, but Canadian usual taxes).
There is a 30 USD$ shipping fee on this one and it ships from US so likely duties.

It's pricier than the BMF.

Thereís also the taxes involved...

Online Shopping - Who's Got the Hot Items??? / Re: EBGames UPDATE

hmm one I preorder was 755111. clonetrooper lt. says.

That's the Kamino clone from the next regular-release wave that should be showing up any day now too:
https://www.ebgames.ca/Toys-Collectibles/Games/875803
Showing up any day? But the release date has been pushed back to October 1. Honestly with the amount that EB has pushed these figures back I'm not sure they'll even make that date.

I actually just saw this guy and most of the wave at my local Walmart.  EB should get them soon if that's the case.

At my local EB, the manager pre-ordered the Beskar mando and he told me tat everytin that was pre-ordered after june 5th (or is it july 5th) was cancelled, including his mando. Apparently, quantity was very small and they won't be getting them in stores.

That's what I've been told.

Yep. Most of my Rebels BS wave got cancelled by EB as was my Beskar Mandalorian.

My EB called to tell me that the BS Clone Trooper Lieutenant (Phase One) was in. I think this one was a Walgreens exclusive in the States.

May seem like a really odd question - but any chance youíre an Uncle Scrooge (McDuck) fan?

I'm aware of who Uncle Scrooge is, but I'm afraid I've never seen the cartoon (or read the comic books, if those also exist). And yes, that is a rather strange question!  ;)

Hahahaha... ok... Iíve just never heard the term, ďstars and gartersĒ used outside of Carl Barksí Uncle Scrooge comics before and thought Iíd found a kindred spirit!

Please, sir, I humbly request that you amend your previous statements re: "Nestlť Drumsticks" and remove all reference to them as "ice cream". If you would peruse the entirety of the product's packaging, you will note that the term "ice cream" is nowhere mentioned, least of all in the list of ingredients.

 :scared0008: :scared0008: :scared0008: :scared0008: :scared0008: :scared0008:

Oh my stars and garters, you are CORRECT!  I had to walk over to the fridge and check the box and yes, it does indeed say "sundae cone" and not "ice cream cone".   Next thing you know I'm going to find out that my hot dog weiners are really made from cheaper cow anus instead of the proper pork anus.   :confused0024:

@jjreason: I think if the retro collection consisted of something more than just repacks of vintage figures, then people would be far more willing to pay the $18 and support the line, that is Hasbro gives us more of the figures we all wish Kenner had made as well like General Rieekan, Monkey-face holo Emperor, Dagobah Training Luke, Removable helmet Vader (which could be an easy kitbash of the vintage Vader), Hoth Han with his hood down (again, an easy kitbash), a Yoda that was more accurate but still had the vintage look, other Hoth Rebels, etc.

May seem like a really odd question - but any chance youíre an Uncle Scrooge (McDuck) fan?

Arenít items still crossing the border if shipped from Dorkside or other US vendors? My understanding is that the mail was still going through internationally - just slower that usual.

Hi guys ..... My wife, son and I are here in Florida. My daughter is out in BC, but we are flying her home on Tuesday.  We have been here in Florida for 2.5 weeks.  At the beach people are not practicing social distancing.   This includes all age groups young and old.  The Clearwater attitude is not just at Clearwater.  We have been staying away from people and using objects to open doors and push buttons.  Our extended outside of country health care will be cut off March 22nd.   We decided the best way to get home was to rent a van and get it with a drop off in Canada.   This way we avoid airports and grouping of people.    Once we start driving we plan to stop no more than one evening in a hotel, but if my wife and I think we can do it safely we will keep on driving. We have just bought a YETI to bring home as much food as we can.  We are not sure if the food will be taken at the border, but we are trying to have some food for when we get home. We have been hearing things can be hard to come by at home.   I hope all you guys are safe at home, looking forward to being back in Canada as soon as possible.

Hey CanadianJedi,

A scary situation for sure.  It sounds like you're doing your best in a very tough situation to take care of yourself and your family.  I hope that your journey is a swift and safe one and that you're home soon.  The grocery stores aren't as bad as they were, though I haven't been out in a couple of days now.  If your food is taken at the border, consider ordering online for home delivery (if that's an option) or seeing if you have a neighbour who can buy something and drop it at the door.  I'm not sure where you are (Ontario?), but if you're close by me I can see about picking stuff up for you to drop at the doorstep.  Let me know either here or via a message on this site.

Thinking of you; may the force be with you.

Had to go out for groceries today anyway, so I stopped in at my local Walmart.  Iíve been trying to limit going out (like many of us, I assume), since my parents are a bit more on the frail side (in their 70s) and rely on me for their groceries and such and Iím worried about passing something on to them.

Toy aisle gave my heart a jump when I actually saw a Vintage card in the aisle... but it was a lone clone trooper. I know itís a small thing in the grand scheme of it all, but man... left feeling so down about missing out on the wave. I feel stupid about letting it bother me; I think itís just the general bleakness of everything in the world right now and the hope for small joys.

In any event, I hope everyone is taking care of themselves and their loved ones. I donít think Iíll be doing much toy hunting these days given the nature of things, but if I do find anything Iíll let you folks know.

Stay safe.

Take care of yourselves and your loved ones, folks. Star Wars collecting is SERIOUS BUSINESS sometimes in terms of our gripes about Hasbro's questionable decisions and availability of certain figures, but in the grand scheme of things it's our health and communities that matter most. 

I wish everyone well!

Yep.  It's been a very boring month or so as a collector, that's for sure.

I even stopped in on a Target and a Walmart when I was in Buffalo over the weekend... absolutely nothing new and, in fact, less selection than what we have here.  No carbonized Mandalorians.  No carbonized Jet Troopers.  No Spirit Yoda figures. 

The only thing I saw in person that I've yet to see here was one of those dumb gold-painted two packs (Finn and Poe in this case).  Needless to say, it remained on the shelf.

Snore.

Called my Eb Games and they gave me a sku for the Luke with Landspeeder  but I think it's the old regular edition sku.

Can someone please post the sku numbers in the provincials for the Luke landspeeder, Han mynock,  and TVC Luke 3 pack?

Just got a call from snowtrooper Ookk and he said the price of the Luke Landspeeder is now $99. Apparently the price has gone up.

Yeah... Han and the Mynock are now 40-something.

TRU I went to had no new BS figures but had all the other stuff. They did not have Poe's Xwing but had Luke's at $135. Too expensive for me.

I grabbed the last 2nd Sister EB exclusive at the store I went to.

Really?!?  They had Luke's?  That's crazy... it's so weird to see such variation in what's available from store to store, even within the same chain (TRU).
