Vintage Collection Antoc Merrick X-Wing
« on: September 30, 2021, 10:18:59 AM »

Has anyone heard whether or not Toys R Us will be getting the Target US Exclusive Antoc Merrick X-Wing?  I see it's already hitting brick and mortar Targets so I  thought we might have heard something by now.  I haven't seen the retro prototype Stormtrooper up for order at toysrus.ca either.  Hopefully the new ownership doesn't have an aversion to bringing in Target exclusives.

Generally, I find that Toys R Us just gets in Target exclusives.  They don't necessarily announce them.  They even get exclusives from other stores sometimes too.  This is especially true for Marvel Legends.

Cool! Finally landing in Canada!

Do you have the SKU or TRU's item number?

How many were there on the shelves? I'm a little anxious that stock might be limited...

SKN is 515523. Price is (brace yourselves) $159.99.

For the more value minded collector, Mission Fleet Millennium Falcon is on clearance right now for $29.98 at tru.  :)`

...oh also there were only 2 when I got there and I left the other one. Also there was no security device to mess up the box like they tended to do with the poe Dameron xwing and the galaxy's edge falcon.

That’s what I thought.  2 per store is not a lot. I sure hope that won’t be the case, but seeing all stock found in the USA right now makes me think Hasbro might have decided to send most of their inventory to the US to calm them down. Maybe the same is happening for the 50th TVC Walmart exclusives that we have yet to see here... :-\

I'm furious. :mad0137: :mad0137:

Just talked to a TRU store manager and she confirmed me that Antoc Merrick's X-Wing WON'T BE COMING TO QUEBEC STORES AT ALL. They'll be available pretty much everywhere EXCEPT in Quebec. There is an official "ban" on it. And it's not due to the unilingual box: the box is trilogo!!!  :mad0137: >:(

And they can't even transfer an item from one store to a Quebec store.

I'm really pissed off. This is really excruciating as a hobby for me right now.

Anyway, any help  getting this would be greatly appreciated. I will cover the costs and shipping and handling fees, can PayPal the funds or etransfer them, as soon as purchase is made...

This kinda ruined my day... :-(

I kind of think that's what it'll be like here cause the TRU around me are still filled with Poe X-Wings.  I don't see them really wanting to bring over too many.

What sucks is that it's so big it'll be hard and expensive to ship.  For me, I have no room for another X-Wing.  I only wanted the figure so I'd probably end up skipping this altogether.

Maybe Tunghori can help with just getting the figure. I'm going to browse for it periodically as I'd like one too.

Yeah, that might be the way for me to go.  He has the new Walmart carbonized figures but I'm not interested in those.
