Heres a small taste of what I have gotten in the last few months...+my first 2 vintage carded figures

Yea if you happen to be a WM and see the Nodes or any of the prequels snag them for me.

The images look good.

Well seen the new/redeco'ed ships for 07 and picked up vaders black fighter. Its pretty cool. Passed on the tank and hailfire droid. The deco wasn't that good to pick them up again for the 2nd and what 3rd or 4th time for the tank?

2nd time for the Hailfire (CW was the 1st)

3rd time for the AAT (1st Ep1; 2nd was CW)

I like the repaints and for $20 it is a good deal.

I just noticed my GG Republic Commando Maquette shipped from SWshop.com

that will dent my 3 3/4 collecting for the 1st quarter

Vortex

Much to my displeasure I had to cancel my Commando Maquette. When it said it was shipping Dec. 7th I had too many large bills and holiday shopping to do, so I dumped it. Now I regret it, but that 300+ is better put to a new stove.

I finally got the Nodes and the ep. I, II, and III tins so I'm good until the new battle packs start to hit Target. I think I'll only get the clone pack and the illum pack. The rest look like repacks and I'll save myself a few bucks.

Vortex, I completely agree, after binging on Bly & EVO's for the Felucia scene I can pass but I will want the Ilum

My only big fear is finding the new stuff.

Spring and Summers are pretty bad for finding stuff here in the metro. Either stores didn't pre-order the sets or the summer help pilfers the stuff out of the back but more often times than not the new stuff is tough to find.

in 07 I'm going to be even more picky about what I pick up. I can only stand so many repaints or repacks.

With a tear in my eye I had to cancel my order...due to a dying stove. Eat or look at 4 commandos. I know what I wanted...my wife had other ideas.

If you're ever willing to part with it, let me know.

Val Da Car
02-03-2007, 09:57 AM
I truly understand that dilemma, having experienced similar events recently and in the past.

If that happens you are on top of the list.

I have seen the Obi Wan Maquette and had to choose between the two and I choose the Rep squad but I think I might change my mind back to the Obi Maquette.

Vortex
02-03-2007, 05:27 PM
Well if you do opt to have Obi, I can definitly give you some seed money for it since I should be getting a good tax return...and the wife and I might take some funny out of it for personal useage.

So, if buyers guilt gets too heavy for ya. I'll help with the issue.

I know with the Bitter cold no one would be out hunting but if any finds any of the Walmart wave I will sincerely appreciate any of them.

I missed my chance to search since I was since the past 8 days.

A little bronchitis/sinus infection dance in my chest/throat.

Yea given my local wal-marts, and contacts, I think that if I really want this wave - I'll have to buy on line. My wal-marts haven't restocked the shelves since xmas and I'm not holding out hope on that wave.

Vortex
02-14-2007, 03:21 PM
Well I struck it rich, but now I'm broke.

I found the orange star fighter and white tie at TRU this past weekend and stumbled upon the wal-mart wave. I bought all the new walmart exclusives but only really should have bought Sing and Mace's purple droid, who is rather cool and unique with their paint jobs. But the rest aren't anything to write home about.

Val Da Car
02-14-2007, 09:04 PM
If any finds any extra of the WM Wave I would be willing to trade or take them off you hands.

Working on Jabba Palace Diorama and Cantina Diorama and the droid would be neat to have.

Saw the WM minus the clones. Nothin too sweet.

Also, yesterday we decided not to buy the house. After an inspection we found the roof would have to be replaced within the next 5 years. There were 5 broken rafters and he said if we would have gotten the normal amount of snow this year that MN usually gets, it would have caved. No thank you.

I have been looking over the Padme Geo (2007) and I just got the Geonosian "Running" Padme (Saga 2002) and the Ilum attack and I think I like the old one better.

AND I would trade you my spare Appo for one.

Appo for Aurra
Padme for Kabe/Nabrund, if you want.

Thanks

Vortex,

I pm'd you and all of the Target have released the TAC (30th Anniversary) wave into the store stock (Stock room = Yes on the updated scanners) so you might be able to find them.

Some of the Targets near me have different Merch Mgrs with different attitudes but the street date of 3/25 might be for all toys in the back room until the Reset is complete.

It's hit

Hasbro's major shipments to the area to Target (pegs are ready and waiting at some stores). Clearances have begun for the Ilum pack and I have not found the Aayla set on clearance yet.

WM has their exclusive already on the shelves but most of my local WM's got in 2 or 3 cases only.

oh well..

The SBD is neat but I still need to open a few...and get a few army builders picked up.

LMK if you anyone is looking for anything sans the McStormie (unless I get lucky tomorrow.

Vortex
03-24-2007, 11:05 AM
Right now the Target HQ downtown MPLS, and my locals stores have the pegs and shelves full of the last repaint collection. I don't know how or if they are going to clear anything out.

My walmart has about the smallest SW set up around and half the time its non-existant.

If anyone is out and runs across the speeder bike two pack, grab one for me.

The only thing I'm really after are the order 66 sets and an extra airborn and marine figure.

I might go poke around today a bit, but I have a hunch I won't find anything.

Vortex
03-24-2007, 11:47 PM
Well...didn't find junk today. My local stores still have the last repaint wave out and the pegs are full. I have no idea what's up around here.

I'm just short the lava miner. My friend found me a McTrooper, but talk about scarce stuff.

The target right behind my house has zero 30th anniv. stuff. The TRU down the road was picked over, and the wal-mart in the area had 2 R2's, 8 Maces, and 2 full pegs worth of ruddy old obi wan.

Haven't seen any O 66 stuff, no new ships, and its kinda bumming me out.

Really...wow, wave 2 out.

I still have yet to see the WM stuff, the order 66 stuff or the sith ship. I found the v-wing but not the other.

I went to TRU yesterday and all the pegs were empty and they had a ton of endor walkers, x-wings and sabers but nothing new. Target had zilch and the SW section was moved to a tiny corner due to spider man junk.

Val Da Car
05-06-2007, 01:17 AM

Found a Colonial ONE...wtf..but no Pegasus..

Vortex
05-06-2007, 11:53 PM
Well I just hope everything turned out ok and life is getting back to normal.

I haven't really been out looking lately. I'm caught up with 30th ann. stuff, cept for the Sith Ship which I can't find, and with spring finally here I've been too busy doing yard work. Seem everywhere is a tad slow.

Val Da Car
05-08-2007, 11:29 PM
Yes,

Finally...all is better within reason. My Boss is still an idiot (new mgr; 3rd one in 20 months)

Well I found some of the New Titaniums. If you are still looking for the Lava Miner I can hook you up.

If anyone sees the BSG Pegasus I would really appreciate that.

I have a spare Order 66 set btw.

ttfn..

back to homework for class on Thursday night.

Vortex
05-09-2007, 02:40 AM
Sorry to hear about the boss(es)

Thanks for the offer on the lava miner but I found one a few months back.

I have one set of O 66, and since I just bought a Wii and a few controllers and 2 games I'm a little tapped on the funny money and I'll have to pass, thanks though.

I should actually be watching what I buy, since last week a co-worker retired at age 40 and the boss suddenly was hit with the fact that he's very near retirement and health issues age and when he goes the office closes so I should watch the $$$ even though I figure I've got a min of 5 years of work, but you never know. So I've been doctoring up my resume and doing a lot of searching on line.

But once this pending dread passes and I get the Wii bill paided off I just might be asking about the O 66 set.

Vortex
05-31-2007, 12:40 PM
I wasn't sure if either one was going to be offered online or later so I hopped on ebay early (1st day of the show) and bought both before the prices when nuts.

Paid more than what was asked on those two sites, but when I checked hasbro, they were sold out and had site problems. Oh well...at least I have them in mail heading my way.

Val Da Car
06-03-2007, 01:14 AM
I double ordered the C4 Luke with and without the code, so if anyone wants one PM me.

I also saw the Saga Legends today (same Target SKU) as Saga. That will be wierd but I figure with the TF stuff out it will be interesting to get SW stuff this month but oh well.

It seemed like less people, but it was a bigger facility, and I was only there for 3 days. The first was Fan Club only, whcich was actually really nice with a lot less people.


Also picked up the Model Nodes Bust-Up set from Shinders in Roseville on the way to a grad party.

I didnt really keep track, but the last 17 were roughly ~780, with lucking out by finding a half complete Lumat at an antique shop for $6 and getting Lando General in a lot for $10. Most of the rest of my collection were less than $15, with a few exceptions.

Well, I started to support the Top 10 Executives at work (at the office, their homes and at offsite meetings) but after a while my manager and director did not communicate or support the work I did for them (as defined by the terms of the contract that was signed two years ago).

I am moving to a smaller IT Service company (private held) and I have know the two principle owners since 1993. Fortunately I do know what I am getting into and with whom.

On a positive note at my going away gathering the CIO and Sr VP of Legal both showed up. I guess that and the 30 other ppl really did let me know of the positive impact I had at the office.

I will miss the people but not the politics.

Sorry I've been MIA lately.

Still getting used to the new job, busy with misc. items around the house and just basicially being lazy when it comes to surfing the net or responding to emails. Guess I've got net burn out.

I found a 181 interceptor, bought the y-wing from on-line TRU and spent some money on the comic-con exclusives.

Managed to find the latest comic 2 packs and right now I'm just waiting for the next waves to hit the store, but heaven help me, I'm honestly thinking about just buying the sets from online vendor...unless I get a second collecting wind and want to hunt stuff down.

I got a little spooked about the 35W bridge incident. Prior to getting married that was my normal drive home and I would have been on the bridge at that time. Good thing I'm in st. paul now and in the south metro.

Well I'm off to the UP of MI this weekend and maybe I'll find something good.

You will blow a gasket, 3 WM in my area got in wave 5.

I only got Yoda, C3p0, Hermi (I :love: him) and Roran.

Very sweet, missed the rest but that usually means within the next 2 wks the rest will arrive en mass

I might have a Animated Fett too..

Rebo's_Guitarist

Fact. It was weird because those were the only Wave 4 figures they had, and they were restocking as I was standing there. I picked up the Fett and the lady handed me the Chewie and was like "Ohhhh, here's a gold one for you, he's pretty ugly though..." Ha ha ha.

Wholly crap I've been MIA huh...

I caved and orderd sets online from all over. The metro is pretty stocked with pegwarmers and we've got airborn troopers and re-packs hanging heavy on the pegs.

Not to mention I can't chase like I'd like anymore.

Still waiting for the WM exclusive comic packs. I want Comm. Kenner and the snow marine pretty badly. I'm scouting Target pretty hard too waiting for the space whale clone pack and ship.

Well...sorry I've been MIA, just too busy with work and other items.

Val Da Car
10-26-2007, 05:26 PM
Don't sweat it.

Between changing jobs and getting my Holy Grail of collecting, I have barely seen any real collecting.

MR AT AT Signature Edition....#39....

I have been keeping my Hasbro collecting to a minimum, especially my Army Building...no more 30+ and such.

I have had recent success in Kohl instead of Target/TRU/Walmart.

But I might have a chance to get the Transformers Store Marketing materials.

I will want the AT TE when it comes out next year.

oh, btw My wife is almost 4 months along with our first.

The Dr would have gotten the gender but the little one turn the other cheek during the Ultrasound. Next one is due Nov 26 (3-D no less)

Vortex
10-26-2007, 05:37 PM
Hey congrats on the kid.

Yea work is- how to put this- tentative right now. We were busy as sin and just this week we had a few jobs crap out on us and vanish into smoke. Part of the trouble of the architectural field.

We just laid off two individuals this week and we have enough work to get us through till Jan, beyond that is ????

Chasing figs hasn't been high on the list of things to do, and my fire for collecting seems to be down to the embers right now, and I'm sorting wishing the line would poop out soon.

I've already said that when the TV show comes out, I won't collect the those new figs unless they are really cool, but I'm hoping for an end. I have plenty of packaged figs in bags under my desk and tossed in a corner. They should be opened and put away, or out, but I've gotten lazy. Since its been what...12 years since the fruit loop han mail away?

Hey guys. Get any snow down there yet? Just flurries up here...I have my fingers crossed for another 3 day 8 ft storm.

Wave 6 seems to be pretty plentiful right now and I hope 7 & 8 continue this trend.

As soon as TAC is done after wave 8, Im done. Although the figures look really great, Im just not compelled to either A) Buy a bunch of main characters I already have or B) Buy a bunch of figures that get 2 seconds of screen time. Kind of a bummer, but it will help out with the wedding I suppose. I would really like to get into the higher end stuff though. That might be fun for a while.

Well, be safe. Even with the forcast of snow people drive like idiots. There was a rollover on the High Bridge over the harbor the other day.....

Vortex
11-11-2007, 06:15 PM
I'm reaching the stopping point myself its been fun but I have to to honestly ask myself...what the heck and I'm going to do with all this stuff later.
I'd like to make a display room, but that's no going to happen for years.

As for snow, we've had a few flurries, but today its been warm and nice out.

I hope the snow stays off for a while - I have to put the snow tires on yet.

Vortex
12-10-2007, 06:03 PM
Wow is this a quite section.

Well I snagged a space whale clone pack the fighter and missed out on those two massive $50 packs. They were sort of cool, but I couldn't drop 100 on that just for a few things I wanted like the turret and those ewok repaints.

I'll watch ebay and local toy shops and hope the $ goes down on those big pigs.

Outside of that, haven't seen any wave 7 or beyond yet.

Everyone have a good holiday and an even better new year.

Rebo's_Guitarist
12-11-2007, 09:03 AM
Everyone just reloaded their pegs with fresh Legends. And thats about how it goes up here. Havent seen 5, 7, or 8. I only saw 6 at one Target, and it was already picked through.

Have a safe and happy holiday. It will be nice to have snow this holiday season:thumbsup:

Well I hope everyone had some happy holidays. Its gonna get pretty cold up here in the next couple days.

Found some odd things at Target today. All the Mighty Mugs and some really ghetto 2-pack keychain things. The MMs where kinda neat.

I just want my dang McRebels so I can be done for a year, or more.

Vortex
01-18-2008, 11:19 AM
Hey, thanks, yet the holidays and new year went by fast.

After target blew out all the big $50 packs and all there other exclusives the shelves are empty. I haven't seen the last few waves hit yet, and for what I've seen and heard for 08, I'm not too jazzed about re-issues and re-paints.

I don't think I've stepped foot in a TRU or Wally World lately either.

Here's to hoping we get some better things this year.

The Mrs is pregnant with our 1st (and it is a boy and I will not name his Lucas)....

Helping out with baby preparation has really cut into any shopping but I am not out. I have not seen any of the singles of Wave 2 and finally got my 1st Gree about 2 wks ago. I am glad these two waves will be shipping together for a while.

I am so gunning for the Midnight Madness on July 26th. I want at least 2 AT TE's.

I still need to find the AT-PT and Gen Grev. fighter.

Dang....I saw both of them in a single case at WM last week (Wed) I think.

Yea kids will do that. I've been having health issues myself lately and work and my duties a master of the lodge have really put a damper into me getting out. I feel like I'm swimming in quicksand.

The battle rancor looks sweet and I'm excited for the game.

Best of luck withe little one.

Val Da Car
06-13-2008, 11:39 AM
Picked up the Rancor (nice) and since the ROTJ will not be out for a while (2009 maybe) it is worth it. Especially once the Game comes out (August / Sept) I might have a chance to play it by then.

I so want a PS 3 but the likelyhood of playing it anytime soon with Jr at 2 months is sooooo not likely.

I have seen some nifty promos this week.

Get a Sony Card & get $100 credited back to your card & 12 months no interest and WM giving a $100 gift card on a "Blu Ray" Player (this included the PS3). Soooo Tempting.

Got my $50 Rewards coupon....half of my AT TE now paid for...now the waiting game.

Vortex
06-13-2008, 12:07 PM
The Rancor is pretty cool. I have him boxed in the computer room. Haven't had time to open him up yet.

I have a Wii, DS, and PSP...I'm covered or so I think. I'll get SWFU for the Wii and maybe the DS. PSP graphics are pretty good, but that seems to be a dying system.

That's quite the card deal there. I'd be tempted myself.

Yea when the Big Falcon and AT TE hit I'll be in the red. Those are two big ticket items, plus the 50.00 video game and whatever else that's cool that's coming out. I don't mind the marketing push but man, spread the stuff out...I'll have to sell a kidney.

Val Da Car
06-13-2008, 01:03 PM
I was gonna go to the Plasma shop and get $30 a visit x3 week to be ready for July 26 and the AT TE's I want to pickup. One should cover me good and I am on the fence on the BMF.

I do have a Wii...but the blu ray and a few PS3 games look good. (like Army of two)

Vortex
06-13-2008, 01:34 PM
That's a good chunk of change right there. But I don't do well with stuff like that...

The big falcon I sort of want more than the walker. I never had the falcon growing up as a kid and I bought...what both of them??? There's only been two right?...and they've been a little disapointing. This one will do me good for a while. I just hope they don't do a big x-wing...

Yea I just got a call from the wife, her car was acting up and its a 1,000.00 bill so far so...that's gonna put a dent in some things for a while.

Picked up. Mara and Plagueis at Eden Prairie Walmart about an hour and a half ago. Only other figures they had were an X-wing pilot (Biggs?) and clone. I was very surprised that of the few figures they were both there.
