I completely forgot about this event.  Were those VC figures ever available for pre-order?
Ha, I completely forgot about this event as well. Perfect example of how collecting is so scattershot these days, I can't even keep track. And even if you do pay attention, typical Canadian retail not coordinating with US retail or Hasbro.

Nope,  they never came up for preorder.  And as far as I could tell were never even mentioned during the unboxing event.

Guess I didn't miss anything.  Gonna have to start cutting back though.  Too expensive nowadays.

You didn't miss anything, there were no preorders put up for the exclusive TVC figures at any point during the 3.5 hour stream nor afterwards, nor the morning afterwards, nor the day after that...

The Target/TRU-exclusive TVC figures will clearly show up whenever Hasbro Canada and TRU feel like they want to (as seems to be the typical pattern with SW toy collecting nowadays).  And probably for $25 to $30 a pop  ::)

Toysrus has morak fett in stock for ship to home. At $32 still way overpriced. I did manage to pick up a couple other items for Christmas to get my order to $100 to use the canpost20 coupon. Made it a little less horrible.

I just ordered TVC Morak Fett for in store pickup and 5 minutes after my order was made, it was cancelled by TRU.  Same thing happened to my mail delivery order on October 27.  Also, never did receive receive the promised apology email with code for 10% off a future order.  Get your act together TRU.

I had that happen to my Axe Woves TVC.  Tried it 3 days in a row and each time it was cancelled.  And then it showed up on the shelf on the weekend.

I did re-order TVC Boba Fett Morak this morning with mail delivery.  So far, my order has not been cancelled.  I searched TRU website using "The Vintage Collection" and Morak Fett was the first figure listed.  The figure no longer is displayed under that search, so I do not really know what to expect.

They have the Tantive IV playset down to $39.98.  That's probably why Amazon dropped their price too.

I received my Morak TVC Boba yesterday, in a mailer envelope with creased corners...

At least you got it.  TRU (at least in Vancouver) uses a company called Intelcom to do the deliveries.  Never received the items and that company causes nothing but stress every time I expect something from them.  That's why I stopped buying from Ebay cause the Global Shipping uses that company.  Luckily, TRU gave me my money back and the item came available for in store pickup and I got it that way.

Well, TRU shipped part of my order NOT including the Boba Fett. That doesn't bode well. And if they ran out of Bobas, how does my discount of $20 off $100 get applied? Will need to pay close attention to my credit card billing. Still hoping Boba will ship, but I'm not holding my breath.

I wouldn't panic yet,  I ordered the Boba with the protoype luke skywalker, at the same time but shipped in 2 different shipments a day apart.

Even with 30% off, all these over-inflated prices for the Black Collection figures are still higher than they should be.  Imagine a credit collection Ahsoka is down to $38.47!  What kind of sale price is that?  The so-called regular price of $54.99 is outrageous.
