TVC Lando Skiff Guard now available in Canada
« on: September 14, 2019, 01:11:55 AM »

Like they did with the WM exclusive TVC Rey several months ago, Kaia Boutique has secured the WM exclusive TVC Lando
(Skiff Guard) after Walmart Canada passed on it yet again:

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fkaia.qc%2Fposts%2F2500077200057408&width=500

Google Translate from their Facebook post:
"Here is our arrival of the week we've been waiting for it for a while and it has finally arrived the lando skiff guard tvc once again Kaia is very proud to have managed for Canada to have the exclusive so far available only at Walt Mart usa only $ 19.99 each
Available in store or via Facebook order
Looking forward to seeing you at the shop"

Get in touch with them if you NEED this figure in your collection.

I feel I helped trigger this by breaking down & ordering one at nearly double the cost from overseas.

You're welcome.  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

Be mindful - this Lando is a very minor adjustment of the Sandstorm Lando from a few years ago - slightly longer legs & slightly different coloring. It's NOT and entirely new figure. The remade vintage card though is one we haven't had yet.

True. It's not a completely different figure, but it's worth every penny. The first edition was way too small compared to other characters. As for the coloring, I preferred the original release, but at least we got a Lando on a TVC cardback now.

And be warned: the figure doesn't come with his blaster pistol like the original release. Which is strange because he has a hostler. Oh well... :confused0024:

This is good to hear. I sent an email hopefully will hear back. That posting says a "Facebook order". I have a Facebook account but am virtually never on there.

Hopefully they can get back to me with a way to purchase a couple and a shipping cost.

Now if only someone would import that damn jabbas palace set.

Kaia should be able to cover your needs. They have more than a few figures.  :)

As for the Jabba's Palace Playset, there's still no plans for these to come to Canada. But maybe Walmart Canada will change their mind. We'll see. Let's check the stores on Triple Force Friday October 4th... :)

I'm gonna just pass on Lando. He's not a $30+ figure to me.  Canadian shipping costs just kills it for me.

Are you out west, Woo? Maybe a few people living close by could send in an order for 10 & split shipping? I'm guessing Toy Traders will find a few of these too.

I heard back from kaia. They are giving priority to case orders and it would cost $17 to ship a case to me. I certainly don't need a case of landos so I'm putting out a call:

Anyone in the Vaughan/Markham area interested in joining me to save on shipping? Let me know.

Yeah, I'm about an hour away from Toytraders.

Just picked up a TVC Lando for me and Darth Cujo this morning from EB Games. JJ, I was thinking of your noble sacrifice as I was paying for my Lando, knowing that EB would never have gotten in this exclusive had you not triggered the universal cosmic forces of "got ya!" the moment you overpaid for your Skiff Lando.  Cheers, my friend.

...and if you now go and overpay for a Jabba Palace playset, I'm sure many Canadian collectors will again have a warm spot in their heart for your second sacrifice.

Already done my friend. I paid just under double for Lando, and saw them at EB games within a few days of receiving my ebay purchase in the mail.  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

If you guys get the Jabba's set up here, my estimated price based on the small sample size above will be $59.99. Hopefully it will come to pass.
