Amazon.ca also has the black series stormtrooper helmet for 79.96 (regular price 99.99). If the kylo ren black series mask is any indicator then this could go as low as $67 at some point but $80 is the best I've seen so far.

That is so weird they raised the price again to $46.57.  Interesting - I called them to complain about the price difference. She said put in your cart and see if the price changes. I did this and within 5 minutes the price was lowered on the web site.

The Elite Praetorian Guard is actually cheaper on amazon.ca than amazon.com after factoring in shiping and duties and taxes. I cancelled my order on amazon.com.

As for the FO Stormtrooper with Gear,  the cost is about the same on amazon.ca and amazon.com when adding duties and taxes. I ordered 2 on amazon.com and it worked out to about $115.00cdn . Amazon.ca was $113.00cdn for the 2. ( I'm in Ontario).

Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: DarthDerek on December 20, 2017, 02:44:42 PM
Hey guys,
I have just made a Amazon.ca purchase and thought I would share just in case anyone else is interested.
I have a huge cart on Amazon full of Star Wars items (28 items) that I have been watching decrease daily.
Well I have pulled the trigger today on five of those items and one of those items is the EntertainmentEarth Exlusive six astro mech droids set from a year ago. I know EE was selling these on Black Friday for $29.99 USD but when I was checking it out it would have really cost me $23 shipping plus duty (maybe) plus the dollar conversion. About $74 Canadian.
Anyways Amazon has just lowered it from $69.99 to &59.99 Canadian dollars with free shipping. That's $10.00 a droid figure. Which is ok, not amazing, but not bad.  They have only two left as of this post.
Here's the link if your interested:

https://www.amazon.ca/Star-Wars-Astromech-Droids-Figures/dp/B01KGRBS3E/ref=pd_rhf_sc_p_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=D9KN8ZH5NS8HEJMK1FTV
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Woo on December 21, 2017, 12:40:13 PM
The price keeps dropping.  I wish I held off just a little longer, would have saved $5...haha.  Didn't realize it was dropping like daily.
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: napseeker on December 21, 2017, 02:32:19 PM
Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I was always under the impression that the Amazon price drops happen because a certain item isn't selling well enough according to some internal metric.  So their system begins discounting it daily until the lowered price attracts enough buyers to reduce the inventory level of that item.

That theoretically should mean that if SW collectors can restrain themselves long enough, then the item would drop to some fantastically cheap price before it gets bought up... although every person's definition of "fantastically cheap" will vary.  And also it's XMas time, so some people have to buy their XMas gifts by a certain date (i.e. so that it arrives before Dec 25th), they can't just wait for it to drop to $2.

The Amazon discounting algorithm is basically an easy way to see what items at your local Walmart and TRU are likely going to become pegwarmers (and eventually clearanced out). Whatever you see dropping in price to something really, REALLY cheap, is a future pegwarmer/clearance item at the physical store.  Going by that logic, then 5POA Rose and Hux are the lame ducks while Jedi Exile Luke, General Leia, Yoda, and R2D2 are likely gone from the pegs first...

Post by: JediPatrick on December 21, 2017, 08:29:00 PM
Just had a price match at TRU in store for the BB-8 Force Link Mega Playset. Price in store was 299.99$. But on Amazon.ca, the price was 121.80$ with free shipping.

So needless to say, the Store Manager was called to the cash register, tried to argue that it was probably not the same product, but had to concede the point. And I stepped out of the store with a 300$ product pruchased for a low 122$.

First time I try to pull out something like this. It worked. Was quite happy.  ;D

That's odd since I ordered Moloch from Hasbrotoyshop.com for their May the 4th promo and got it Thursday. The bubble was a wreck but the figure is quite cool. Only wish the arms were a bit more curved.

Looks like prime gives you additional 15% off toys so there are some decent deals. The big one with that is this applies to lego. Can get the lego falcon 15% off with free shipping. Pretty good to get $135 off. The death star is 15% off as well. If I ever could have the room for these I'd jump on them now. I don't think big ticket lego goes on sale very often.

I had contemplated the lego falcon a while back but the hasbro Barge took my monet and space instead.

nice my TRU still has nothing new. was hoping have Miban Stormtrooper out but nothing yet. had none of the Emfy Nest thou. but I know they wont price match amazon.ca locally. said have to be a local store

That's weird. The only requirement was that it had to be sold by Amazon.ca and not a 3rd party seller a d they would match.

Agreed. Did a price match once at my TRU in Montreal. Was for the BB-8 Playset. Sold at 115$ at Amazon.ca, 299$ at TRU. I had a price match using the Amazon.ca website, showing that Amazon was the seller and that the produc was in stock, that it was a real sale.

The cashier had to involve the manager because of the price difference. The Lady Manager first didn't want to honor it, arguing that it was certainly not the same product. She had to ask one of her boys section employee to check on this. She had to bow down and accept to price match after her employee confirmed it was the same product. But I could see in her eyes she was pissed off and frustrated. Quite in fact that she was very rude to me the whole time. The young cashier even apologies to me for her rudeness.

I would seriously argue with your store manager to force the price match. Go on the TRU website and print their advertisement for price match:

********
http://www.toysrus.ca/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=11770205


- Item must be identical

- An item does not have to be on sale to be price matched

- A current Canadian retailer's advertisement must be presented (printed or on mobile) and must show price currently in effect including:
    - Catalogue
    - Canadian only online retailer and/or flyer
    - Receipt from another retailer showing product description, price and date
    - We do not accept shelf labels or pictures of shelf labels
    - Retailer must have the advertised item in-stock and be available for immediate sale in the same local market area

The Price Match Policy DOES NOT apply to the following:
    - Offers with limited and/or minimum quantity
    - Bundled offers
    - Advertising errors and/or misprints
    - Rebates or free/bonus/gift card offers
    - Coupons
    - Rainchecks
    - Special financing offers
    - Liquidation/Clearance centres

 - The price match cannot be combined with other Toys"R"Us offers including coupons
 - Where a price match with a retailer is applied after purchase, the difference will be refunded in the same method as the original payment  within 14 days of original purchase date. Original receipt is required.

If they had made that a OT Stormtrooper instead of FO, I think it would have sold out at the price.  It is a nice package - the OT stormtrooper deserves the same treatment.

I agree. Stormtrooper, Sand Trooper, Snow Trooper, Scout Trooper any of them would have sold better.

They were in a bubble wrap.  Surprisingly, they arrived in tact.  I'm an opener, so I don't care about the condition, but they actually survived.  They packed them so that the cards were back to back on each other, which is probably why they didn't get all warped.

Actually, just realized one bubble was actually cracked but the card itself (and thankfully the figure) look fine.

If there is a tentative release date it will say in the listing like ďIn stock Oct 31Ē or something like that. Otherwise it will say order now and they will send when available. They only charge your credit card when they ship the item and they send routine email updates to let u know theyíre still looking for it and that you can cancel anytime.

Yep, that's what they do.  That's how I got my 2 TVC Hovertank pilots.  They will periodically tell me I can cancel it and then suddenly, I got an email saying item shipped.  They don't charge until they ship.

However, in the past, I have ordered a figure and they eventually just cancelled my order saying they can't get the item, so it is not guaranteed.

My Patrol Troopers arrived from Amazon today.  I ordered two.  The box they used was hilariously oversized.  It was big enough to fit a TFA Falcon and maybe would still have room.  Oh and no packing material either except that paper.  Glad I'm an opener...haha.

Honestly, it is only one of the dome covers I need cause it fell off my 40th R2 and I never found it again.  I ended up putting a black cover on it from the Imperial set but would love to get a blue one for my R2 though.

Finally received my 4-LOM. Only took a couple weeks for Canada Post to deliver in one of the weirdest routes.

Amazon actually sourced my 4-LOM from Chattanooga Tennessee! According to tracking it started there. Went to Brownstone Michigan. Then it appeared in Montreal. Sat there for a few days then appeared in London. Then a few days later at the Mississauga sorting plant and out for delivery a day later.

Koodos to Amazon for coming through on my item but jeez what a shipping route!

 that reminds me, when i saw Darth Revan on walmarts site back when it was out, i ordered it and it came from British Columbia. im way over near niagara falls. normally everything else i get comes from Missasauga but that time it was coming from way across canada!

 its just the one and only time it happened so it was a bit diff. Obviously it came from some centre. Im pretty close to Missassuaga for mail so usually i get orders fast. well not these days cause of whiney employees but thats another story.

 i guess your use to long hauls. Missassuaga seems to be the big one.

The Toys R Us 10% savings card is a card you keep in your wallet....also came with savings card for your key chain. They gave them out at FanExpo in August at the Hasbrostore as Hasbrostore is managed by Toys R Us Canada.. The card is good on most Star Wars products in-store and online. In-store it seems to work with both regular and sale priced items after they scan the barcode on the back of the card .....online it only seems to work for regular priced items with the promo code. The card is good until the end of January 2019. You can use the card and online code multiple times. I don't know if they were handed out in TRU stores this year. In 2017, they handed them out at the cash during Force Friday...but there was no force Friday this year.

The online promo code is 2018SWLOYAL .

Exclusions are usually Lego sets ending with .94, clearance, video games and bikes.

(I also got a card for Marvel products as well.)

That nice to be able to do that. I just see the ones available from third party sellers. I can't purchase dengar from amazon themselves. Would be nice to get that ordered. Then I'll be done with black series for a while. Next wave will be a complete skip for me if the rumoured list is correct.

I ordered the Centerpiece Kylo and Rey from Amazon. I like the centerpiece figures. They remind me of the Unleashed statues from years back. The price drop on the Centerpiece figures was quite substantial and more in line with what I think they are worth.

I ordered Dengar and that wave from Northmen Collectibles but so far no word. I received a message one month ago saying they would be shipped in 1-3 weeks. I left him a message yesterday so hopefully he responds. I saw the negative feedback on here so I am a little worried.

Yup, complete skip for me. Most of my non-OT black series figures were obtained on clearance. Occasionally I'll get one if it's a really nice figure. Nice to see some prequel love for prequel fans though. They've been really under represented in 6". And it gives my wallet a break.

Post by: napseeker on December 12, 2018, 02:27:11 AM
I actually wish they would spend a bit more time focusing on the PT for the next while, maybe some EU added here and there in drips.

Some easy 6" PT figures they could do:
- torn outfit Padme
- eps2 Obi-Wan
- eps2 Anakin
- the obvious recoloring of the Battle droids for different ranks
- updates to the eps2 and 3 clonetroopers, maybe with removable helmet and Jango face if they can avoid fat helmet syndrome.

I still really want a Count Dooku... amazing that they are only now getting around to General Grievous.

edit: sorry I just realized this is drifting off-topic. But let me also add... the cheap TVC figures on Amazon.ca (I think it was Snoke and the TFA Stormtrooper that specifically was around the $7 to $8 mark) just reflects how poorly Hasbro set up wave1.  I noticed that the Hoth Rebel Trooper has not fallen in price, was still at $17 as of last night).

Here's the link - https://www.amazon.ca/b?node=18457737011&pf_rd_p=48736569-0d9c-45ff-b2e3-319684f711e1&pf_rd_r=9V0MEK2595E3Q1PJ3C0N

It's not everything.  They have a note that it's only toys sold by Amazon.ca, but even that can be hit and miss.  It's definitely not everything.

I find some items mention the 15% and some don't.

If you have two items in the cart, the new price should show on the shipping option (2 days, 3 days, etc.) page. 

When I put a bunch of stuff to see what had the extra 15%, however, it only showed on the last page (the payment page), but only as the total percent off.  It didn't show the individual items.

With Amazon generally matching TRU lego prices, if you collect lego, I'd suggest checking out that stuff.  A lot of lego seemed to have the 15% applied.

So, the action figures weren't showing the individual discounts; only the total discount in the order summary. The LEGO set did, however, show the discounted price on the shipping page. YMMV.

I am so regretting getting the Assault Tank when it first came out. :(

View it like this: if everyone had waited to buy this thing at clearance prices, the product would have been judged a failure and it would have bring doom to the TVC line. Yes you get a nice thing for a very cheap price, but it'd be likely the last. So your initial move to buy the toy when it first came out balances out the failure of Hasbro having to clear them at ridiculous prices...

My advice to everyone who hasn't pulled the trigger yet is :

Buy one right now at $65-70ish , or as Ian says , price match at TRU and use the 10% off card if you have it.
It well worth $65!!!!!
When you get it, OPEN IT! Touch it, feel it..you will like it. Put your TVC Tank driver figures in it.
Now that you have one, you will realize you would buy another if it was cheap enough like $50,$40, maybe even $30.  One tank as a Orange Cantainer hauler, and the future second tank as a Tank Troop Transport (without the Orange cantainers).
This way it's win-win, you can't lose!
If the price shoots back up....you will be happy!
If the price keeps dropping.....you will be happy!
The end game is to have two at the total price of what one would be at 25% off original retail price($119.99).
$60 + $30 = less then one at retail price.
Go for it bobafett108!
DarthWoo wait for $30 or below your average cost will be $75.... Well worth it!

I got it expecting it would see very limited release in Canada. My regret is not waiting. I love the tank though and if it goes to around $30, I'd get a second one.

Well I got an order for Hoth Leia in today to go along with the one for Dengar from last week. Still no confirmation the first has shipped. Hoping for hope's sake that they can mail me both so I don't have to do any more holiday WalMart shopping.  :speechless-smiley-004: :speechless-smiley-004: :speechless-smiley-004: :speechless-smiley-004: :speechless-smiley-004: :speechless-smiley-004:

I broke down and finally pulled the trigger on the At-Dt.  I think it'll drop more, but rather not risk not getting it at all as I have never seen it anywhere else in Canada.

I pulled the trigger on Amazon at $112 back in the summer time.  Even if this goes to $20 I don't regret it.  I think it's great.  In years past I have also purchased the white stormtrooper and black shadow stormtrooper helmets. Both were around $60 ish.
I wonder how low Vader will go? ???
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: bobafett108 on December 19, 2018, 07:31:02 PM

I pulled the trigger on the At-Dt on Monday at around $32.  Now it's down to $30.  However, I don't regret it as it's still cheaper than the regular retail for $44.99.  Don't want to risk missing it completely.

Plus, the money I saved on the Enfys Nest 3.75" Swoop Bike ($10) makes up for any savings I miss on the At-Dt I guess.

Exactly Woo!
If you want it, you have to pull the trigger at some point.
I bought my first At-Dt 3-4 weeks ago at $51(better then $59 at the time). And just bought my second at $31-32.
I love my walkers.

 ive been looking on amazon lately more. i dont think its anything new to a lot of you but the pricing can be pretty nuts. i dont mean when it decreases by 10 cents but somethign else i saw was 50..then its 60 a day later cause its coming from the seller and not ''fulfilled through amazon'' anymore even though its the same thing (still free shipping)

 sites annoying with the algorythms too. they think people are stupid and will buy something if its ten less compared to when it was 10 cents more just a day before!!! omg!!! they play that b.s game too much.

Ordered 3 Tusken Raiders and a Qui Gon at $8 each yesterday.  All 4 figures came with damaged boxes.  They were damaged at the warehouse though as they came packed really well in an Amazon box.

Great prices on Amazon.ca, however, if you want MINT packaging, it is hit and miss.  I ordered 4 TVC figures, all arrived with folds in the card.  The BB8 playset arrived damaged.  I ordered one 6 inch Tusken Raider.  It was just throw into a box and was loose, no packing material.  It somwhow arrived MINT, however, the figure I received had the googly/crossed eye problem (my original TVC Raider had perfect eyes).

I found a set of six on Monday at my two local Walmarts here in Ontario.  Me personally, Would wait for retail and not pay extra. 
I consider these in the same category as REBELS figures.  Kind of cartoony.  These will be everywhere soon clogging , I'm sure.  But then again I thought SOLO wave 4 would be everywhere aswell. :confused0024:
I wonder if they really run with this line, like how Clone wars did.   :P

I like collecting the Vintage Collection figures...but I don't know if I can start collecting this retro line. It's bringing back great memories when I was younger....but it's still a retro 5POA....and everyone knows how I feel about 5POA. I may be selfish in saying this, but Hasbro could have focused their efforts more at producing more super-articulated figures for the Vintage Collection instead of producing this retro line.

I hope you guys like to open these figures because they are going to show up 'beat to hell'.

I ordered one of each! thanks so much. I am going "all in" for this line. Are there any variants/exclusives being made too that I need to be aware of ?

So far just the Target-exclusive Tarkin that comes with the Escape from Death Star board game:
https://www.target.com/p/star-wars-escape-from-death-star-board-game/-/A-75665073

Might possibly come to EB Games? They've been picking up the Target exclusives lately.

This is what I'm hoping for.  Apparently when that happens, the Skus don't get entered into the system as far in advance as the exclusives EB/GameStop get, so it's harder to tell if they will, in fact, get them at all.

One can only hope for the Solo Stormtrooper and the Death Star Escape set.

Padme is currently available from a third party seller who is scalping it on amazon.ca.Aamazon.ca must have run through their stock at the moment. This could  change as stock often goes in and out. Vos is being sold for regular retail by amazon.

Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Cujo on July 17, 2019, 11:06:55 AM
I don't have prime but still look in case something blows me away and it's worth the free trial. I was looking at a couple blu-rays. And their prime deals were a joke.

For example Top Gun, a catalog title that should regularly be a $10 movie in my opinion was "on sale" for $12.99. Kong skull island, a more recent title was, was on sale in blu and 4k. Both at what I would consider regular prices should be at now.

If you want me to sign up for prime you need to do better than that.

Why are TVC Leia Boushh and Yak Face $24.60 each when the seller is Amazon.ca? What a rip off?  If you do order from Amazon.ca, more than likely the TVC cards will arrive damaged/trashed.  I would wait for Force Friday in October, I am sure these TVC figures will be at Wal Mart and maybe other retail stores for $17.97, when they all reset.  however, i understand that it is hard to wait and retail is really bad right now.  Just my opinion.

I would guess that on Force Friday, retailers will have boxes marked not to open until the day, and those boxes will contain all the new figures (Ep 9 figs and a couple others, if rumours are true).

The chances of those figs being seen at retail here are slim to none if they don't get here before then.

I did find about a month ago, remnants of the Yak Face wave (Scarif Stormtrooper & Range Trooper) at just one of my local Wal Marts.  I am still waiting for Amazon.ca to get in the retro figures I ordered (temporarily out of stock for 3 months).  Maybe Wal Mart will have a special cardboard display with newer/older items for this year's Force Friday.

So further to that, i just went to Eb games and they had wave 6 stuff in.... Lando, stormtrooper, elite praetorian, chewie and Phasma.   

If distributors have sent out any Wave 4, its either rotting on a warehouse at Walmart or TRU or its not coming.

Hence, Amazon is charging extra based on their algorithms.

Have you tried to see if the extra heads that come with the Throne Palpatine will fit onto the original Palpatine?  That way you could display two different Palpatines at once.  I was considering doing that whenever I can afford to order the throne set (which I definitely cannot right now, Marvel Legends collectors will understand why....)

I must say that for once it is nice to be able to order and pre-order stuff right away from Canadian places.

Does anyone else think that price is obscene? $15 for a 1-inch figure? It should have been a pack-in accessory with an updated Mandalorian figure with the new beskar armour. I guess they're trying for the cash grab while they can - and keeping it standalone opens it up to a wider target market, though I'm sure most kids/moms/casual fans would prefer a full scale plush version.

Updated face paints on Luke Bespin, Lando, and I suppose Luke Snowspeeder is kinda a new figure.  R2 is painted dirty to resemble his Dagobah look.

Hoth Rebel Soldier is a totally new figure. 

That's about it really - everything else is either masked (and therefore no new photoreal is needed) or already came out with photoreal paint apps

Thanks for posting the links. I wonder if/when the carbonized vader will be available. I had read in the lame Q&A that Hasbro had allocated inventory to the international amazon affiliates, so was hoping they would show up soon.

Can finally get the carbonite block Hasbro said would be available outside SDCC at a later date. Only took them 7 years. If this was going to be an SDCC exclusive this year, it would have defeated the purpose, but having them available through amazon is lucky.

Post by: napseeker on May 08, 2020, 10:36:59 AM
I will also attest to Amazon being incredibly incredibly bad at keeping the card intact. 

I ordered a Diamond Select TRON figure a month ago, when it arrived, they actually crammed the figure into a shipping box SMALLER than the toy's packaging, by folding in the top-quarter of the toy packaging (the "lip") over.  Totally wrecked it.

You can complain, and they'll let you exchange it for a replacement, but I've had the case in the past where the replacement also arrived with the packaging damaged too. The workers don't care... they have a quota to meet.

The new wave of BS figures are up on Amazon for pre order now.  For the Rebels, they only have Zeb and Kanan. 

I'm waiting for Sabine though cause fo the new face print tech.  Not sure if I care enough about Kanan to get him again.  Ezra already had the digital face print so I can pass.  I just don't know if I see enough of a difference on Hera and Ashoka to care about getting those again.

I pre-ordered these minus the Vader. I just feel like I have a million Vaders and a bunch in this line already. I lean towards being a completist but sometimes I just get exhausted. Same goes for the photo real. At $30 a pop I have a hard time pulling the trigger on a figure I already own. Unless it is a Stormtrooper or army builder, you can never have enough of those. LOL.

I feel the same way.  I don't even think I'd get it if it went down to $50 cause I'd still have to get 2 to complete the look.

I have a question about pre-ordering from Amazon. If I pre-order figures that have the same release date, will I still get free shipping? It seems like I can only pre-order one at a time rather than sticking them in the cart and ordering them all together. Iím hoping I donít have to pay full shipping fees for each individual figure.

I have never had too if do that, usually if add all to cart and get free shipping it is on anything even if dates are different.

Strange. You should be able to add them to your cart at one time to get the free shipping.

Strange. You should be able to add them to your cart at one time to get the free shipping.

Lately, it only gives you the option to pre-order now, instead of pre-order: Add to Cart.  It'll take you straight to offering you Amazon Prime.  I think it's their way of pushing Prime by making you think you have to checkout right away.  However, all you have to do is navigate off that page and the item will be in your cart.  Then just add other things.

You get free shipping as long as the total before tax is $35 or more.  It can be different dates and such.  When I ordered the latest 4 Power Rangers figures, they shipped the first 2 separately (as in one at a time one day apart) even though they all have the same release date.  Still waiting for the last two.

What matters is that you have them all in one invoice.  If you order them separately, they will charge you shipping.  Also, if you bought 2 things so you can get the free shipping and one item ships but not the other, you can't cancel the other item on the site.  You will need customer service to do it cause if you cancel it, it won't be free shipping anymore.

I remember seeing a comment about pre-ordering from amazon & the free shipping vs not free shipping situation - can anyone provide further details?

Specifics - I want to pre-order Dagobah R2 & would like to add to the order to qualify for free shipping, but it just wants me to check out & pay for shipping. Do I add something else to the cart first? Anyone figured out a work around for preordering?
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: old man ben on June 28, 2020, 12:57:18 PM
Darth Derek has worked out a system to get multiple purchases on a single order and get free shipping for each item even if they have different delivery dates.  You might want to message him to get the details.
In essence each time you put an item in the basket, you have to go back to the item listings and put another item in your basket until you have met the $35 minimum to qualify for free shipping. It will ask you which shipping option you want, then you have to click on the free shipping option.  Even if you have three or four items in your basket you have to click on the free shipping for EACH item before you check out.  Itís a bit tricky and time consuming but it is worth it.
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Cujo on June 28, 2020, 01:15:55 PM
It really isn't any different than ordering anything on amazon, whether in stock or pre-order. Just put enough into your cart so you're over the $35. At checkout, like OMB said, is where it gets a little convoluted. Due to different possible shipping dates they separate items in your cart during checkout, so for each item you have to select your shipping method. It tends to default to a paid or Prime shipping option. But as long as your cart is over $35 you can choose free shipping for each separated item(s)/shipments. They sometimes group a couple items together based on ship dates.

And in my experience they tend to ship them as they come into stock, and not wait for everything at once.
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: jjreason on June 28, 2020, 04:09:09 PM
My issue with preorder is that it doesn't seem to have an option to put anything else in the cart before checking out. It wants me to pre-order each item separately & choose shipping every time - free shipping is never one of the options because none of the items on their own are over the $35.  :(

EDITED: Ok, after going back to amazon to see what I had missed, I found that both R2 & TIE pilot were still in my cart from my previous browsing session, meaning I could preorder them both together & get the free shipping. It's as though going into the preorder screen put the items in my cart automatically as I never hit an "add to cart" button during the process. Not sure if this will help anyone else but just in case, I'm detailing what happened here.
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Cujo on June 28, 2020, 05:34:09 PM
I just tested it to see what happens. I see what you mean, I tried a $30 pre-order item and it took me right to the finalize my order page. And with nothing else in my cart the free shipping wasn't available. So I backed out of there then went back to my cart and the pre-order item was in there. I could then add other things to my cart to get free shipping. And then the process is as I described it above. So it seems it's trying to force you to go through with the order, but you can work around it. Just need to back out to add stuff to the cart.

Even when you get all your items in the cart and select free shipping, you think that would apply to all the items in your cart, but it doesnít.  You still have to go to each item in the cart and select free shipping for that item.  Thatís the only way to get it for all your items.

Recently I got a shipment of a 6" Hoth Trooper figure from Amazon. It was sent in an envelope and of course was damage significantly .  So I called Amazon and talked with a representative from Trinidad.  She said that the company to trying to use as little packaging as possible to ship things out.  So she asked me to give feedback to the shipping department.  If you have the same problem, you may want to give feedback to amazon as to the problem you are experiencing .   I find I can not trust Amazon to ship things out anymore, unless it is a big item.

I don't remember ever getting a book from them in an envelope. It's usually just a matter of whether they pack enough material with it to stop it from sliding and bouncing around inside the box.

I don't get many books from amazon anymore, usually preferring chapters/indigo.

I never saw it go up back when the 4 LOM and Zuckuss and han carbonite went up. I don't know when it actually became available. I just happened to notice someone posting about it on another board a couple days ago. Otherwise I would have never known it was on amazon.ca.

Post by: Dale R. Superstar on August 06, 2020, 09:57:26 PM
Wait, Amazon actually sent the Han Carbonite in a box and not a padded envelope.  Well at least that is an improvement. Did Amazon fold the card to make the figure fit in a small box?  I have also been cancelling my Amazon preorders and reordering with EB Games (if the item is available).
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: napseeker on August 07, 2020, 01:02:36 AM
When I first saw it had come in a box, and not a padded envelope, I was like  :)`  my card is going to be nice and minty fresh (although even as I was saying this, that quiet part of my soul was already bracing for the inevitable plot twist that you know is coming...)

The shipping box had just one air cushion in it, and there was still plenty of room for the card to bounce around and smack its edges against the inside of the box. That said, the edges weren't too frayed or dinged except for one corner.  It really was the top-right corner being so creased that sent me to the dark side. 

I may be an opener, but I still keep all of my cardbacks, and the novelty of having the frozen Han in carbonite on a Kenner-style card is definitely ruined when it looks like this.

Two of my Star Wars Amazon .ca orders came in today.  First, both orders were sent in oversized boxes which was good and had nothing to do with the condition of the items I received..  However, in my first box, both my 40th Anniversary Hoth Trooper figures had the cards folded in half.  These will be sent back to Amazon for a refund.  The 4 LOM and Zuckuss set had a dinged upper corner on the outer box, but luckily both carded figures inside were MINT. I will probably keep this set.  My second order had the 40th Anniversary Han Carbonite figure.  It was packaged perfectly with a lot of air pads.  However, the card had a lot of natural creasing all over the front of the cardboard picture.  This looks like it was Hasbro's fault direct from the factory and is unacceptable for the 40th Anniversary figure packaging.  I will be returning this figure for a refund. I really do hate this mail order / Amazon age we live in.  I really do miss the good old days of walking into a retail store and picking my own figures directly off of the shelf.  Yes, I do miss you Zeller's.

I had a lot of fun at Zellers over the years, too and obtained tons of great toys from them. I think we need to blame Walmart for their demise more than Target.... Walmart simply out-Zellersed Zellers. Target's failure here is another story completely, and one that I will never understand. It should have been a success.

EB Games also pushed back the release date for the BS 6 inch new packaging assortment until October 1st....so maybe it's a Hasbro distribution issue.

Also the VC Power Droid is supposed to be released tomorrow for orders through EB Games. No mention of the other figures in the wave. I'm sure the VC Power Droid will be pushed back a few days or longer too.

So for those of you that received the Amazon exclusive 4-LOM & Zuckuss 2-pack, you might want to open it up to see how the figure packaging is inside. I have one set where the outer box looks beat to hell, but the cards and bubbles inside are fine. Another set I opened, the outer box had some lite creasing, but the figures inside had crushed bubbles along the top of the bubbles, which made no sense on how it could have got damaged that way.

So my point is.....just because you might have received a set with an outer box that looks mint....it could be that your figures inside have damaged bubbles and/or cardbacks.

 its just greed if you ask me. They prob sell more at a time this way and less chance of putting things on sale later on, seems that way to me. the lack of figures,everything seems more aimed at money. Sell less for more/everyone wants whats harder to find type of philosophy. screw'em! ha

What I hate about Amazon is that they put them out at different times.  They only have Hondo posted for that wave.  I don't want to order him cause I'll have to get something else I don't want to get free shipping.  Then when another figure from that wave shows up, then Hondo will be sold out and I'm stuck in the same situation.

I wish they just let us add to our order any time prior to it shipping.

Partly blame stupid Hasbro for this with their partial wave reveals. Forcing retailers to put partial wave up for preorder.  It really annoys me since I am selective with what I buy. I don't do one of everything anymore.

Has anybody else received their Carbonized Darth Vader from Amazon.ca?  I received mine on August 30th.  I was shocked to receive a mint condition item from Amazon.ca.  It was sent loose in an oversized shipping box, with no air bubbles inside.  The Carbonized Vader figure is really nice!

I received my power droid from amazon. In an envelope. The cardback was surprisingly in great shape. Unfortunately the bubble had been squished and popped back. So you could see the stress Mark's on the corners of the bubble. Otherwise it would have been minty.

He's still available on amazon.ca at about 3PM.

Carbon freezing chamber is reduced to 59.99. Definitely more palatable. Not sure if they're price matching someone as they often do or if this is just them on their own.

I think it's more likely that they've got inventory coming in from Hasbro and they noticed that not as many collectors as they expected are pre-ordering this set.

Even at $60, that's still $67.80 with taxes and then since you have to get two, you're talking about a whopping $135.60 to get a complete one. 

Maybe if it went down to $45, I'd bite, but I'd rather buy other SW product before I get this playset.

I agree this is probably the case. $75 is an insane price for this. $60 is still tough to go with. That should have been the regular price and $45 on sale would be ideal.

Walmart is sold out now of the Carbon-Freezing Chamber playset for $59.97.  I would suggest placing an order with amazon.ca for $59.97 before they reset the price back to $74.99.

Logically, if it's on pre-order and the price drops, they should lower the price for those who preordered?

Amazon does do that as far as I know, but it's only in effect until the item releases / comes in stock.

They used to extend the lower price guarantee to a couple weeks after the item ships, but they stopped that a long time ago.

If Amazon adjusts it prices based on the what they find out on the internet for pricing, then they may have lowered their price because Walmart had them on sale at 5 am for $59.97.  If that is true, then Amazon system trails a little bit. I checked Amazon when I did order and they were still up in price.  My order was the last Walmart order to go through and that was at 5:05 am.  So I wonder how long until Amazon raises their price again?

And mine did show up.... a little worse for wear but I'll take it. Just sent in a regular envelope, didn't even look like a bubble wrapper from the pics my wife sent. ><

Post by: JediPatrick on September 29, 2020, 06:50:58 PM
Got my order from Amazon from my 2 Power Droids.

I was stressed when I saw the bubble envelope in my mailbox. I sai to myself that these two figures were probably crushed nd would be openers.

But when I opening it, each figure was wrapped inside a transparent plastic bag (offering no additional protection at all, but whatever). As a result, the only damage is a small crease above the peg hole on one of the cardback. Everything else is perfect, even the bubbles are not crushed. i was honestly quite surprised, when I saw the envelope I feared the worse...

So thanks to Amazon, but really no thanks. Packing was non existing. It was pure luck that I din't get crushed figures. They should know better.

The pricing is so completely nuts. That's $95 after tax. I paid $135 for the 6" Snowspeeder, and that was when it was new, not on clearance or anything. It is 10x the toy that this completely repainted release is. Total cash-in Baby Yoda money-grab from Amazon, as if they didn't already make enough billions this year.

I am just happy that it's just a very scene-specific figure, with nothing new that I don't already have. I'll wait til the price drop to half like most Amazon exclusives end up at, if I buy it at all.

This is getting crazy with Amazon. I have always in the past seen prices go up above MSRP for items that were out of stock from Amazon proper and being sold by third party. But now I'm seeing items "shipped and sold by amazon" priced at the lowest third party price. I was watching the 6" 40th anniversary ESB fett for a few weeks since it came back in stock, as shipped and sold by Amazon, but at $40.19. I looked at the other options and this is exactly the price one of the third party scalper stores was selling at.

So it appears Amazon is now in the business of scalping as well. You can no longer trust Amazon's price is the retail price even if it says shipped and sold by Amazon.

What's (kind of) hilarious is that the price of the Bespin Freezing Chamber set was actually a few dollars cheaper a few days ago, than today's cyber Monday "sale" price.

So far I haven't seen any genuinely outstanding deals on either Black Friday or Cyber Monday. It's just the price of their typical sales (in a year when there haven't been that many great sales anyway, so I guess that makes this one the exception?)

Really?  I did a quick check on Amazon.com but I don't even find a listing for the freeze chamber playset on there.

EDIT: I see Yakface is reporting that Amazon.com's CyberMonday sale on the freeze chamber is $28US.  Wow!!!   Maybe it sold out then when I was checking for it.

So, the Amazon exclusive Biker Scout and Speeder Bike set should be $64.99.  Northmen Collectibles has it now for $64.99.  Apparently Hasbro opened this up for order with specialty retailers.

Still kept my order on Amazon though cause with free shipping, it's still cheaper than getting from Northmen.

I checked after I saw darthric's post and saw it for $28 with no import fees deposit and I think about 16.80 in taxes and shipping so it would have indeed been cheaper to buy it from amazon.com.

Zeb is in stock on amazon.COM for $20.99. Even with $10 shipping, it ends up cheaper than buying at regular price in Canada. $40Can all in. He's below the customs threshold so I'm thinking he won't get hit with customs fee and tax.

Darn, they are sold out at the $64.99 price.  My current pre-order is at the $69.xx price.  I'm still debating if I really want this or not though.  The only thing I really like is I've wanted a grey Speeder Bike to match the vintage one's color.
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Woo on December 16, 2020, 02:48:20 PM
Actually, just cancelled my Speeder Bike pre-order.  It's just not worth it for what we get.  All I really wanted was the grey Speeder Bike.  I'm willing to take the risk it'll go down in price on Amazon, or that maybe somewhere down the line, I find someone who only wanted the bag and the repainted Biker Scout that's willing to trade or sell the Speeder Bike to me.
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: napseeker on December 16, 2020, 03:56:46 PM
What's even the appeal of the grey/white speeder bike though? 

I looked at this set and thought to myself:  90% recycled from past releases.  I could literally put together something similar with the Black series Baby Yoda, my Biker Scout, and of course the 2012 brown speeder bike.

Just find some kind of cloth handbag thing from my toybin to throw Baby Yoda into and voila... a somewhat inaccurate recreation, but still enough to get the gist of that scene.

Sometimes I get worried that we collectors really have become the Simpsons stereotyped toy collector chasing after Malibu Stacy with her new hat.

(and note, I include myself in that category... I bought that TVC Stormtrooper Luke recently even though the older TLC Stormtrooper Luke (from 2011?) was just as good, just because it had the photoreal Luke head)
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Woo on December 16, 2020, 05:57:21 PM
The only appeal of the white/light grey Speeder Bike to me is that it more closely resembles the vintage one.  However, after careful consideration, it just wasn't worth it.  Even the weathered Scout Trooper doesn't look to good to me and I have enough Scout Troopers in my collection that I don't need another.  Scout Troopers are my farourite type of troopers.  Don't know why, just really like them.

Wish they would make one with the flip up visor one of these days, like the 3.75" ones had.

I just realized why I thought the vintage one was grey.
(https://d1466nnw0ex81e.cloudfront.net/n_iv/600/1182167.jpg)

Now when I look at pictures, I see that the vintage one did have a little brownish hue to it.

Wow, you just gave me a strange flashback... that same MPC photo is what had me convinced as a teen that the speeder bike was white, too!   

I recall how odd it seemed when I first saw (as an adult) the brown speederbike made for the PotF2 line I think, surely Hasbro had gotten the color wrong for whatever reason.  I've gotten so acclimated to it being brown now, that I'd forgotten I used to believe it was white too.

Memory is a funny thing...

Which is why I've stopped pre-ordering from Amazon.  They cancelled my G.I.Joe Classified Storm Shadow even though I ordered right near the beginning.  Now I'll probably never get that Storm Shadow unless Hasbro releases it again. It was annoying because the Ninja Force Storm Shadow, whom this one was patterned after was my favourite paint deco for Storm Shadow.

Right after I said I stopped pre-ordering from Amazon, I ended up just buying the Mando Speeder Bike w/ Biker Scout cause the $64.99 listing came back.  I was holding off cause Amazon's listing was around $70.  I still think $65 is expensive for this, but at least it's in line with all the other Canadian collectible stores and offers free shipping.

That's why I didn't get them from NMC and  Toy Snowman cause I didn't want to buy more stuff just to get free shipping.

I hear ya on this. Unless they have it in stock I don't pre-order many toys from Amazon. I usually just order through BBTS. It isn't perfect for their pre-orders either but most of the time there isn't an issue.

Amazon pre-orders are a joke. They did that to me with the Mando 6 inch figure. Canceled my order only to make it available later.

Or they take more orders and cancel with the item never to be available (stormshadow gi Joe figure). I don't know if it's more a Hasbro/distribution issue or an Amazon issue. But you can't count on pre-orders.

I'm actually supposed to be getting my Tantive IV hallway on Tuesday.  I'll admit that my enthusiasm for this set has been dampened a lot after reading the JTA review and seeing the in-hand photos.

https://www.jeditemplearchives.com/content/modules.php?name=JReviews&rop=showcontent&id=4167

The white plastic does look to be of surprisingly cheap quality, and I was astonished to see that the stickers that were applied by the factory weren't even put on straight for two of the pieces (it would be infuriating to have to peel these off manually and reapply them so that they weren't crooked).

For a playset costing $70, and has almost no paint at all except for the red lights over the doorway, the quality should've been higher. I'm actually concerned that the white plastic might turn yellow over time (given that large number of my SA Stormtroopers and Biker Scouts now have ugly yellow torsos, this is not unexpected from Hasbro products).

I ordered two sets, I'll open one for sure and see how I feel about it once I see it in person, but I may just keep one set rather than both.
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Cujo on January 17, 2021, 08:45:08 PM
I was able to re-order after my initial cancelation. Mine is apparently in New Jersey.

Yeah I've read it is quite flimsy. I will judge for myself when it arrives, but hopefully the stickers are on straight. I ordered 1 and will hopefully get a second on sale at some point.

I did find this amusing in the review at jeditemplearchives (the absolute King of hyperbole).

"But I think what is most devastating is the fact that IDENTICAL CHARACTERS (Pello Scrambas Ė one with Photo Real updating and one without) on two different card backs (one ROGUE ONE and one STAR WARS) with TWO DIFFERENT VC NUMBERS (VC183 and VC52). Hasbro is sinking deeper and deeper into mucking up this collector-revered action figure line. Itís quite devastating."

Really? A repack of an in demand figure with new packaging and a new VC number is "quite devastating"? :crazy:

My fleet trooper will remain carded. I have enough loose ones the fill the corridor and it will be a nice carded R1 figure regardless of which trooper it is.

For a change I actually agree that Paul is being hyperbolic in his rant. He's always passionate when talking about the hobby, but every once in a while he does take it too far even for me. 

I'm wondering if maybe he's so upset at Hasbro using a new VC number because he didn't have the original release and he simply wanted a straight repack with the original VC number so that he can be a completionist?  Or maybe he's arguing on behalf of those who are.  Ah well, I was super-happy they repacked the Tantive IV trooper, but again it was a lazy effort not to add the holster or change the headsculpt.  I agree with Paul on that for sure.

And breaking news: my order from Amazon arrived a day early. I just opened up my package and what do I see?  One of the playset packages has a freaking puncture right on the front, like someone took some scissors and just stabbed the thing. I can see right inside the box thanks to this puncture hole. The other one has a noticeably dented corner.   There was no protective bubble wrap at all. 

I'm so pissed at their usual shoddy handling, that I'm debating if I'll even keep both. For sure I'm sending back the punctured one to Amazon. No way I'm keeping that one.

EDIT 1: correction, the second box has TWO corners that are dented, on opposing sides of the box.   :mad0137:  >:(  :mad0137:

EDIT 2: since I am really curious about how true the reports were over the quality of this set, I decided to open up the box with the two dented corners.

It really saddens me to report that the JTA review is 100% true. The plastic on the wall pieces is crap. I've bought stuff from dollar stores (like those stackable white plastic trays) and the plastic on these walls is comparable to the dollar store trays. That's what it feels like.  The Hasbro photographer deserves kudos for making those initial product photos look amazing, but what you get in reality is fairly disappointing.

The real kicker is that the white plastic on the door pieces is an off-white (it looks more yellowy than the side wall plastic pieces which are a more pure white).  So I don't know if this is intended or not, but it looks wrong.   The JTA photos didn't make this set look that great, but in person, it actually looks worse because of the yellowish-white walls.  Maybe other people's versions will be different/better, but I'm fairly disappointed.

The 4 black stickers are (thankfully) applied straight, none are tilted or angled BUT all of the stickers are just slightly larger than the recessed wall area that they are supposed to cover up. That slightly larger size means that the edges or corners of the stickers curl up a bit around the frame of the recessed areas.  What does that mean visually?  That my eye can easily detect that these are stickers. And I think over time, those curled-up sections are going to dry up and start to peel off.  I had to use my fingernail to push in the curled up parts since they were already starting to detach a bit from the plastic.

The TVC rebel trooper looked good (although the strap was not put on well and partly covers up one side of his cheek) and the card wasn't warped or damaged unlike my BFC Stormtrooper card.

Thanks napseeker for the review, mine was on the shipping dock at Amazon with a label so I had wait until it was dispatched.  Got the email this afternoon so I just got off the phone and they have canceled the order and I am getting a full refund without the hassle we all know too well .  It is time we all stood up for a quality product from Hasbro .

Nobody was more excited for this Tantive hallway set than me, so this has been a hugely disappointing day.  Been waiting for this playset since I was a kid in the late 70s, but this ain't the one.  Although if it had been released back in 1978, it probably would be more acceptable in terms of quality, but not in 2021.  And certainly not for a collector-targeted product.

I think the doorway modules are good despite the off-white sort of yellowy coloring, they have some great detail on them and the door opens very smoothly. It's really the sidewalls which are the cause of the major disappointment.  The Hasbro photos lead you to expect a plastic similar to maybe what you see in that TVC Stormtrooper that was included with the Bespin Freezing Chamber set (it has a nice reflective and subtle shine to it).  The actual plastic for the sidewalls has a dull, very matte appearance.  It kind of feels like a thick bar of soap (it even looks kind of like it was carved out of a giant bar of Ivory soap).

What would've helped things for the sidewalls is if Hasbro had painted the little bits of greeble. The total lack of any paint, and the awkward stickers, really makes it look very plain. I saw someone on JTA mention that they were going to hand-paint the greeble parts themselves, but man, that is a lot of careful and tedious work for something that should've been done at the factory.

It seems to me like Hasbro expects this playset to ultimately end up on clearance (which wouldn't be unexpected given that's what happened with both the Jabba playset and the freezing chamber down in the US) so they didn't invest a lot of money into developing or manufacturing it.  That lower wholesale cost probably gives the retailer a bigger profit margin if they can sell it at full price to the initial batch of customers and still make a smaller profit once they have to clearance it out.

I'm going to return both.  I can't justify spending $70+tax ($79.10) times TWO to get a complete hallway (that's $158CAN!!!) and to be so unhappy with it whenever I stare at the thing.  If it drops down to $50 per set, I think that's more acceptable since you do still get a nice RFT figure as well.   

The Bespin Freezing Chamber which started off at $75 is now at $49 today (so about a 35% drop).  A similar drop for this set would take it to $46, which is a lot more reasonable for what you get out of the box.

I just assembled the Tantive IV playset....and it's awesome! Once assembled, it's more solid that when you first take it out of the box. If you put at least 2 or 3 of these together, it's pretty cool. I don't see any issues with any yellowing of the white plastic, and I don't think it's the end of the world with regards to the 4 stickers. I see a lot of potential for those who like to customize. Be careful not to throw away the tiny brown envelop which contains the pegs for the foot holes to stand and pose your figures. I'm liking it.

Just opened my Tantine IV and I love it.  Sure its not worth $80 but is any toy worth what we spend on it?  I visit JTA daily but after reading their negative review on this and then opening it and finding its pretty good I lost even more respect for those guys.  They just need to complain for the sake of complaining.  Far too much negativity on that site.

Post by: napseeker on January 23, 2021, 05:43:59 AM
I suspect it's because he knows Hasbro reads his editorials.  I don't have any real grievances with most of his articles, but yes once in a while he has to tone it down lest his criticisms start to fall on deaf ears (one can only listen to cries of the sky is falling for so long).

The site is well-balanced by the fact that the other main contributor to the articles, Thomas, argues his points more calmly and usually using statistics and facts, rather than subjective opinion.

Ever heard of the boy who cried wolf?

Sadly he's so full of hyperbole he has zero credibility with his opinions as far as I'm concerned. Hasbro may read his stuff now but it wouldn't surprise me if they write him off as a crazy uncle that people no longer take seriously and just laugh at.

His negativity really does undermine his efforts.

Glad to see someone loves their set. I'm excited to get it. But mine came scrunched so I'm exchanging it. My replacement is already on the way.

Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: napseeker on January 23, 2021, 08:03:09 PM
Regardless of how some collectors feel about him, his fairly passionate articles do get Hasbro's notice and I'd credit him with keeping the 4-inch scale alive (and giving it a bit of a resurgence). 

When fans don't speak up, and speak up passionately, companies tend to push forward with their own perceptions and motivations (especially when it comes to 6-inch which is far more profitable for them than 4-inch).  We shouldn't take for granted that TVC returned just because Hasbro spontaneously decided it should, it took the constant virtual shouting of the more passionate fans to remind Hasbro that people still care about the 4-inch scale and that there's money to be made there if they deliver a quality product.   

The fact is, that most collectors just passively take what they're given and either quietly leave the hobby or are resigned to eat the crumbs that we would otherwise get e.g. 5POA or little green men toys.   While the negativity can annoy some, and needs to be used judiciously, it does spur Hasbro to do a better job or at least make them aware of what areas need to be focused on in the future.  I'm sure Hasbro understands this...  Paul does offer praise when they get it right too, it's just that his haters focus only on his negativity.

edit: here's a recent article from Paul, and yes it's negative in tone but for good reason (and it's not hyperbolic at all). It highlights the reason why SW and GI Joe 6-inch collectors aren't getting much value for their money when they buy products nowadays.  Heck, it probably explains why the Tantive IV playset feels so cheaply made for the cost (in a not-surprising way):

https://www.jeditemplearchives.com/2021-01-23-former-hasbro-employee-paraphrased-perceived-value-initiatives-mandated-across-all-lines-to-create-hasbro-brand-uniformity/

NOTE how GI Joe Classified collectors get screwed over, even though Hasbro owns the brand, simply because Hasbro has to keep the Joe figures unified with their more costly licensed products.

This is the kind of stuff that Paul does a great job at bringing to the attention of collectors.

I know this is an Amazon thread, and I don't like to pile on, but I have to say I'm getting more and more tired of JTA. If it wasn't for Thomas' more analytical articles, I would likely have stopped visiting there as little as I already do. I used to like Paul's enthusiasm, but his articles are just one negative rant after another now. And he's no better in the comments threads, where he makes sure to remind everyone that he still hasn't watched a single episode of The Mandalorian. He complains all day long about how Disney isn't giving the fans what they want, and then when they give us exactly what we want he doesn't even watch it. Yakface has taken over as my to check for figure news.
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Cujo on January 24, 2021, 10:45:46 PM
I got my replacement playset from Amazon. This was packed better. Only a minor dent in the corner this time instead of being smooshed at one end.

I have to say, based on the reviews I was expecting it to be more flimsy. The thickness is basically what I expected. Sure its still more expensive than it should be and the stickers are pretty lame (they don't sink perfectly into the recesses and they should have been painted) but I'm already over that. I'm really happy with it. Itís basically what I expected. I'll get a second if it goes on sale for $50 or less.

On the whole JTA thing... how does an avid SW fan not even watch an episode of Mando? If you watch it and don't like it, I'd frankly be amazed, but at least that's keeping an open mind. But to not even give it a chance? Really odd and makes me think he's narrow-minded. And crediting him with keeping the 3.75 line alive? Doubtful.

Anyway, I'd say don't let negative reviews dissuade you from getting it unless you're on the fence. If you were excited to get it, you should at least check it out. It's not perfect and it's definitely overpriced, but I really like it. 
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: napseeker on January 25, 2021, 07:50:40 PM
I'm assuming the no-watch Mandalorian thing (which is the first I've heard of it) is part of the anti-Disney mentality which even I agree is silly. Disney did a great job with Rogue One, and to a lesser degree SOLO, and by now I'd hope that Paul recognizes that it's the old-school fans who are raving about Mando, and with good reason.

That said, I personally won't be supporting the Acolyte or the High Republic projects. These come from the Kathleen Kennedy camp, who've been antagonistic towards the fanbase in the past and belittled them for complaining about the sequels. I'm not talking about those who supposedly harassed Kelly Marie Tran, but the more moderate complainers. When a segment of the corporation mocks their customers for making valid points, they won't find me buying or supporting their projects just out of principle.

Again for the JTA/Paul haters, just stay off the website. I never get why people go to that website, then complain about the owner when it's fairly known that his views are radical at times and certainly an acquired taste. As mentioned, there's Yakface and RScum.  It would be like if I passionately hated The Force Awakens (which I do) yet I just keep watching the movie over and over just so I could complain more about it.* Just stay off JTA.  I still contend he's done more good for the 4-inch line and kept it alive, so we'll have to agree to disagree.

To return this post to something about Amazon, I did my return of the Tantive IV playsets today and dropped them off at the post office.  I really wish I were more happy with the product, but it definitely falls more into the $50-ish range for me as an acceptable purchase so I'd rather wait for a sale.  If it goes out of stock, I find that I really won't be so upset any more about not having it now that I've been able to check it out in person.

*I've watched TFA exactly 2 times. The second time was just to confirm that it really was the worst of the SW movies, and yes, it was.

EDIT: Amazon.ca has Endor Han Solo at regular price $29.99 for pre-order for anyone who still doesn't have him yet

Yeah I also have little interest in the high republic stuff. With so much coming we really will be able to pick and choose and still should be able to find something to enjoy.

I tend to check out JTA for the news and tend not to read anymore. I blame napseeker for directing me there this time for the review of the tantive set  :winking0071: ;D. But yes its at the point where I'd rather just not go there anymore. Yakface is great and rebelscum is still an old standby, though they don't seem to be on the forefront of news like they used to be. Lately I've been checking out banthaskull. They seem to have a love for vintage collection without the negativity or arrogance.

As for Amazon I wish they had endor Luke available. I'm still looking for that one. I have han, and Leia has been in stock on Amazon for a while. But luke seems elusive.

I have no interest in any of the high republic stuff either, Nap. Not even remotely.

Anything new that is coming out of Lucasfilm (and there is a lot of new Star Wars coming) needs to be evaluated by every fan to decide if it will be worth the investment in time. Even if I weren't against it on principle, the High Republic feels very much like it's going to be another Star Wars Resistance-type failure... and unless Disney forces Hasbro to do it, I doubt Hasbro will be supporting the series with much in the way of action figures (though I guess they could reuse existing tooling of Jedi from the prequel era).  I really like Charles Soule as a writer, but the premise just doesn't sound that exciting.

Side note: does anyone else think that the blonde Jedi woman on the front cover of the novel looks a LOT like Kathleen Kennedy?  I'll bet you can't un-see that, now that I've pointed it out!  :mad0218:

@Darth Cujo: okay, if I have to provide any more links to JTA in the future and the article includes a Paul rant, I will try to remember to add a warning/disclaimer.  :)`  Even if Paul gets worse with the hyperbolic complaints down the road, the best solution in my book is to just leave him be and let him silently implode.  I just don't believe that collectors should criticize other collectors since each person's passion for the hobby is going to differ in how they express it; it's perfectly fine to critique Hasbro or Disney or George Lucas, as they are the corporate giants that we have to hold to account since they control the health of the franchise.

Haha, no worries. I think the warning is unnecessary at this point, nap, its expected. I was just teasing as I'm sure you know   :). As far as criticizing, I do my best not to attack and always keep in mind these posts are basically public. I agree with your approach though. I actually really do wish he wasn't so negative as the actual content of the website is very useful if you can weed through the crap. That's why I keep going back but its just become more and more wearying to weed through.

Anyway, amazon has the mandalorian troop transport for 69.99. Is this the lowest it's been? Wondering how low it will go. I don't really need it (not OT) but it sounds like a great vehicle. Its tempting.

Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: napseeker on January 27, 2021, 03:13:35 PM
The Troop Transport has been at that price before, I think even slightly lower than that at $67-something.  I'd certainly pick it up at $50 if it ever fell down to that level, or at $60 if it had included a pilot figure or something to add some more value.

I have both the vintage Kenner and the CW troop transports, so like you, it's not a must-have, just a "would buy it if it were cheaper".   Looks like a good-quality toy, but not really iconic or essential.   They had a variant of this transport during season 2, which I thought was more visually appealing than this season 1 transport.

I love both the tank and Transport.  The only thing I wish was that the transport was the 2nd season version with the manned turret.  I paid full price for both of them though but still love them.

However, I waited for discounted prices for both of the X-Wings.

I bought one Tantive corridor. If it ever goes on clearance, I may get a second one though.  I just want to be able to have walls on both sides of the hallway.

For the Carbonite thing, I would only get that if it goes on really deep discount, like $20 cheap.

That said, it's unfortunate about the Bespin chamber set selling so poorly.  I wonder if Hasbro had put in the Bespin Guard instead of the Stormtrooper if that might not have made a bigger difference in sales.  Or a Bespin Guard AND an Ugnaught.

Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Cujo on February 01, 2021, 11:50:55 AM
Yeah I think the bespin set, even if costs justified the price (which I don't see how) and even if it is technically accurate to the film, it just look flimsy and really poor value for the money. It's also awkward looking for shelf display. Comparing it to the tantive set, (even if you're disappointed with it) it looks like a more complete set. Sure its obviously not a complete hallway but it doesn't look like bits are missing like the bespin set does.

The tantive set looks like a decent set if you have one that can be enhanced with additional sets. The bespin set looks like 1/2 a set that is missing something and therefore feels like less value.

Either way $35 is a good value for the bespin set.
Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: jjreason on February 01, 2021, 01:40:28 PM

Title: Re: Amazon.ca Updates
Post by: napseeker on February 01, 2021, 02:02:42 PM
100% agree with you JR.  I said the same thing when I first saw the set... it needed that blue-black cardboard background to really convey the sense of the freezing chamber.  Sometimes just a small addition can make a huge difference in recreating look-and-feel.

I'm torn about which playset is "better".  I agree with Cujo's remarks about how the Bespin set feels incomplete (half a playset) and for sure the Stormtrooper was a lackluster choice.  That said, I think the quality of the Bespin set exceeds that of the Tantive hallway (grey plastic is easier to look nice than white plastic that is for sure, no yellowing concerns either).  I was actually more worried that Hasbro wasn't going to use translucent orange plastic for the vent-things, and were only going to just paint those areas in orange.   

The only thing they could've done to improve it was to have modular foot pegs, because right now, I'm worried that if I just rattle my shelf by accident, my figures are all going to come tumbling down!

Flip side: the Tantive IV is crappier quality for sure, but yes, as Cujo notes, it feels less incomplete.  You don't feel the need to get a second playset (unless maybe it goes down real cheap in price).  And also it's a more exciting scene to recreate since it's a battle rather than just a group of people standing around an open hole  :P

I was excited about the prospect of the Carbon Freezing Chamber when I first heard of it. I got the one that came out with the elastic-y carbonite that you could put your figure in and they were "Frozen". The fact that it was a complete playset, with a jail cell, moveable platform and the cool feature of closing the carbonite on your figure all in one was nice. The only problem I had was with the big gun accessory. I was all WTF. The guard figure was awful but he was a good background filler.

http://rebelscum.com/potjcarbonitechamber.asp

Fast Forward to this one. When I saw that it was only half of the platform I was unsure about it. Then seeing the fact that it's just some parts on legs, I was disappointed. If you want a complete chamber, you buy 2. What do you do with the other freezing unit? Why didn't they fill in the undersides of the chamber. They could have put the "underneath" with the window that Vader throws Luke out of. They could have had something to fill in the wall at the top parts, even if it was orange plastic to give the glow effect.

This just feels like a money grab to me.

Yes!  I still have the PotJ playset as well and I still love it.  The great things about this set were:

1) as Kale noted, it felt complete and even had some nice play features
2) it came with a Bespin Guard!!!!
3) it has the control panel thing
4) even though it didn't have translucent orange plastic for those vent-things, Hasbro nonetheless have them cut open as holes so that you could still customize it with some translucent orange plastic sheets from the craft store
5) the thing was sturdy as hell, not flimsy
6) I think it sold for the same price as the TVC Bespin Freezing Chamber set (better value!!!!)
7) the underside of the platform was generic enough, that as a kid, you could use it to represent other environments e.g. the engineering room of a spaceship

The only negative was just that the standing platform and stairway were too small. Otherwise it would've been near perfect for its time.

EDIT: for anyone looking to populate their Tantive IV hallway, you can buy some loose Rebels here:

I had that old set too, but it was one of the only orig trilogy toys I wound up selling in the purge - the price was right & that guard was an abomination. The chunkiness of the freezing chamber was good though.

Transport is down to $52. Sounds like a nice deal to me.

Sales must've been good at that price.  It's gone back up to about $64+tax again.  I bought mine, since $52 is probably about as cheap as it'll get (unless Amazon is sitting on a warehouse full of these toys).   

I noticed that the Bespin Freezing Chamber has again dropped down to $47.  How many of these playsets do they have? You'd think at $36 they'd have cleared out most of their stock.

That's cause they only sell as certain amount at a low price and then the algorithm will kick in and raise the price back up until sales slow down enough again and then it'll slowly go back down.  But yeah, they gotta have a lot of these. 

If the Tantive hallway drops in price, I would love a second or 3rd one to build on the one I hvae.

Gotta love those amazon algorithms. Its great to get deals but you have to constantly watch.

Whats annoying is they no longer price adjust after you buy something. So you have to re-buy and then send the first one back. They would save everyone a lot of hassle if they did an adjustment up to the return date of the first purchase. Probably counting on people being lazy.

So, is it free to refund on Amazon? I always thought you have to pay shipping unless there was an issue with the item.

You have to pay for the shipping back. Sadly.

Just did a refund for a TF Cyclonus that was sold at 44.99$ on Amazon, after I found it at 29.99$ at my local Walmart. I ended up paying 44$ after taxes and shipping rather than the full 54$ amount. I definitely should have waited to see if stores would carry the toy before jumping on Amazon. Patience. I must learn patience...  :-\

I haven't tried to return based on price change. I've always returned due to damage. Its free if there is something wrong.

I have had enough items come damaged it wouldn't surprise me if they flag me. I've heard of them doing that. Don't know if its true. But they are so inconsistent with their packing quality.  :speechless-smiley-004:

I think we should be able to argue that there was something wrong with the order .   The problem - I paid too much . 😀

I think I did that once and they waived the return shipment cost as long as I bought the new lower price one right away.  Can't remember.  Was a while ago.

I was chatting with another collector friend about this just last year i.e. why do some customers get banned by Amazon.  There was an online article that highlighted people who seemingly get kicked off Amazon and who claim that they don't know why, they didn't do anything wrong.

Personally I think that Amazon has an algorithm that analyzes how many times they have to pay for the shipping when you return a product back to them (referring to genuine returns due to damage or some problem with the product), and how often customer service has to do some kind of special refund because you call to complain, and if the algorithm decides that you're costing them more money than they are making from you, they'll just boot you off without any warning.   

They have hundreds of millions of customers, so kicking off a few hundred (or even thousand) unprofitable customers each year, probably doesn't hurt their overall sales, it likely saves them money.

You can try preordering from here:

I've ordered from them before and they tend to get their stuff a while after the big-box stores, but the service has been great.

Jarjar is already marked down on Amazon. Even their pricing algorithm knows he's a turd!

Yeah, I've been watching to see how low he goes.  I might pull the trigger if he drops to like $25.

Now if only the deluxe Boba Fett would do the same (ha! fat chance of that)

If collectors can hold off from buying Jar Jar, I think it might drop down as far as $35.  Although usually Amazon's algorithm seems to work in cycles.  The first time it starts discounting, it doesn't ever drop as far down as 30%, I think it usually stops at around 20% before it resets.

My guess is that the algorithm also has a time factor involved e.g. how long as Amazon had this item in stock?  If it's been 6 months to a year, then you'd likely see a 40 to 50% drop like we did with the freezing chamber.  Jar Jar is still fairly new so a 20% drop would take it to about $36.

Maybe by Sept-Oct if he hasn't sold out, then the second or third pass of the algorithm might get him down to $25 to $30.

Right now I wouldnít touch anything coming out of the Brampton Fullfilment Center.  That building has been hit with a big Covid infection.  Nine bus drivers taking employees there each day have also been infected so they have stopped all buses on that route.
