If anyone ends up with any extras of the 6" Clone Wars figures, I and a couple friends would be interested. We were on'y able to get pre-orders in for some of them, and they've never shown up in store locally.

ToysíRíUs just cancelled my order for the Retro Boba Fett Prototype Edition.  Just a little disappointing.

My retro boba has shipped.  Question for everyone: Do you consider proto boba and proto vader part of the retro collection.  I think I only ordered him to be a completist for the retro collection but I dont even have proto vader? :sign0065:

I consider it as an odditie, like my ski google pilot luke. Something fun to play with.

I'd think of them as a sub line.   Similar to the Gaming Greats, part of TVC, but a set of 4 to themselves.

I consider them part of the retro collection. They'll always appear on any figure lists in the "Exclusives" section, but they're on the list.

My two arrived. In a small box but they were put in at an angle so they came in perfect shape. Very heavy card stock on the card back so that certainly helped. Looks like a double layer like the old POTF2 EU figures.

As for it being part of the retro or Vintage Collection. I'd say no. There is no reference to either series on the packaging. The packaging doesn't fit in with the retro horrid fake weathering. And it is way glossier than the regular vintage collection. To me this and the previous Vader are stand alone one off items. Definitely cool but not a hole in the collection if you don't have one. Of course now that I have the Fett I wish I had the Vader.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Agreed on this. It's hard enough getting hold of all the exclusives that ARE part of those lines, I don't need to make it harder by including the rainbow figures. They are one-off oddities, something that would be a Con exclusive during normal times. It sucked that Hasbro included the Mouse Droid and Salacious Crumb figures as numbered entries in the VC lineup, glad they did not give these an official connection.

Yeah that was a really short sighted and inconsiderate thing to do when they numbered the mouse Droid and crumb. I actually don't care one iota about the numbering, since I gave up on being a vintage collection completist ages ago. When the "regular" releases like Jango fett and death star escape luke didn't even come to Canada, and the likes of Nom Anor (who??) and Shae Vizla (again, who?) never released in Canada and had instant secondary market values that were unreasonable, well I dropped my completism to OT only. I do also get lots of others that I like, like Mando characters, Jango (found him on a peg at Walmart in South Carolina). But OT is my main focus. And even though numbers mean nothing to me, the mouse Droid and salacious are holes in my collection.

Anyway, Boba is a nice one off as far as I'm concerned.

And it just got weirder... Toysrus sent me an email about my cancelled order saying that I will be able to reorder it end of july. They will contact me. It's weird, let see how it will develop...


And you know what... I just got a shipping notice w tracking. I am so confused right now. Toys r Us is really weird. I hope you can reorder it without cancellation.

TRU called me yesterday afternoon to say they had my Prototype Boba Fett and that I could come and pick it up.  I showed her the email they sent me when they originally cancelled my order, asked her if it was still any good, and she gave me 40% off the figure right away.  Saved 8 bucks!
