There is some possibility he will get a single carded release down the road. Hard for me to imagine they'd do all the work on that very desirable figure & card not to take another run at making some money off it.
  This is certainly possible, but they would probably change the cardback to differentiate the versions.  I'm ok with that.

Online Shopping - Who's Got the Hot Items??? / Re: ToysRUs.ca Updates

Price increase across the board as of August 01st....vintage collection figures now $19.99 or $21.99, black series now $33.99 or $37.99 or $39.99....TRU, Walmart and EB Games.

Prices on playsets, helmets and role-play have also increased.

I'm thinking if it's across the board, then it's an increase on Hasbro's part at cost, which turns into an increase at retail.

Imagine the fun you could have taking them all apart & putting them back together all in the proper color - like a Rubick's Cube!!!  :fett: :fett: :fett:

Ok, that made me laugh.  But I could see someone actually doing it....

The Black Series 6" Figure Line / Re: Haslab Rancor

I'm guessing those characters may be add on for target sales much like TVC figs were added for each threshold reached on the Razorcrest.  But still a pass for me.

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

I ordered one of each of TVC gaming greats and got all 4 in a thick cardboard box with a bubble spacer to fill the void.  Couldn't be happier.  I'm always anxious ordering from EB/Amazon/Walmart as to how these will come...But this was pretty much perfect.

Clone Captain Grey was right at the start of the first episode.  The Elite Squad Trooper was introduced in the third episode.  Don't know about Ballast yet.

But where are the actual Bad Batch?

lol, fair enough.  I probably would have noticed that had I watched it twice...  But yeah, the actual Bad Batch members would be nice.  On their own card style.

Bad Batch Amazon Exclusive - $79.99

https://www.amazon.ca/Hasbro-F2886-Tvc-3-75-Epics-Sioc/dp/B08T6M7G2P/ref=sr_1_42?dchild=1&keywords=bad+batch+star+wars&qid=1623863257&sr=8-42

I ordered this but smh at it.  Only Rex has shown up in the Bad Batch of these figures.  I think Hasbro needs to stop milking the TVC cardback and just create a BB line a la Clone Wars cardback size.

Happy that it comes in a box.  That'll help protect the cards!!

I think TRU had the Vader, but not a lot.

This will become the new Hoth Han coat...  Honestly though, gray makes way more sense as an imperial vehicle.  The Empire didn't really seem to care about camouflage with any other vehicle.

interesting.  Similar to the centre piece series, but without the lights.  That didn't last too long.  This might not either.

Not sure who the Snowtrooper was who posted on Facebook that they received 9 TVC Incinerator troopers.  But in my opinion, not cool. No wonder the rest of us can't get in on the preorders.  Not trying to create controversy, but come on lets share the wealth, so everyone who one wants one or 2 can get them.

You realize that it's a private group of FB and that they are probably a member here too..  I get that 8 might be excessive for one person, but that's the system.  If Walmart doesn't put a limit on the transaction, be mad at them. 

And he outright stated that he's keeping them all, one carded, opening the rest for a squadron.. That's what army builders do.

Found 2 cases of TVC Fives wave at my local TRU.  Happy to have these in hand and pick the ones I like!
