Only books and CDs.
It sucks.

Not suprised to be honest.

The UK's 2nd largest supermarket chain is part of Walmart (ASDA) and whilst they sell toys, you never see the exclusives in store.

Bummer

They're back in stock, but probably not for long. Hurry!!

[the X-Wing and Gunship, not the 2nd boxed set : ( ]

So does this mean that the Ultra X-Wing & Gunship are going to be an online only thing or do you think they will still be stocked on the store shelves too?

I'm sure that they are nice, but I'm more of a hold it in my hands before I buy it type of person and only resort to online buying if the former is just not a possibility.

The way the Walamrt's around here have been with the Titanium line (never saw wave 1, saw wave 2 once, and saw wave 3 once) I'd recommend ordering them online. I'm pretty sure you can return them at any Walmart store if you don't like them. I was extremely happy to be able to order them online, now I'll just hope that they actually arrive. The extra 5.00 and change for shipping is well worth it in my mind, I'd spend at least that on gas going to and from Walmart just once, and they probably wouldn;t have them anyways. The only thing I don't like is that it said the order will ship between 10/10 and 10/17, I want them now : ( grr. Lol.

Now hopfully the Die Cast set with the Tie Bomber becomes avalable again soon...

Dang- Gunship was gone when I got there after this. Still got my X-Wing though-

My X-Wing is scheduled to arrive the same time as yours, shinakuma. Now if only I can catch the Gunship AND the TIE Bomber 5-pack.

Note that the descriptions for the 5-packs on Wal-Mart.com do NOT match the pictures- weird, eh? I am assuming that the Pack 2, which has a picture of the AT-RT, actually comes with the TIE Bomber as the description states. Makes me nervous ordering because I don't want 2 5-packs...speaking of which-

Hey Kidhuman- any news on when the first 5-pack I got from ya will arrive? ^_^;

And JT- LOOK AT THE PIC! A REAL ULTRA X-WING! :D I found it in an Ebay auction! :)

JediTricks
10-04-2005, 07:58 PM
That is indeed a real Ultra X-wing, so there ya go. I forgot why I had said that before... oh yeah, I said I didn't trust an auction that had a stock photo, right? Good find, I guess these are out in some capacity.

I am so SICK of these damned WM exclusives though, I haven't seen wave 3 Titaniums once, there are no WMs in Los Angeles at all so it costs a fortune in gas to go to either of the 2 WMs that are within 20 miles of here, and they NEVER have these stupid exclusives anyway.

Warstar
10-04-2005, 08:51 PM
Heh- the guy selling that Ultra, though, is in Singapore!

I hear ya on the exclusives. I am kind of embarassed to admit this but-

I have seen Wave 3...TWICE now. I bought a TIE Bomber for $4.97 to make sure I got one this past Saturday, though I still paid $12.62 for one on Ebay. I bought an extra ARC-170 on Saturday and I'll sell it and whatever TIE Bomber looks worse and try to make up some of the loss. Now I just need that X-Wing and I'll have them all, save for the Celebration III Gold one, which I haven't seen in a while, actually.

Anyway, I have seen Wave 3 twice, Wave 2 once (and I got all but the AT-RT there- KH hooked me up with that), and I never saw Wave 1 at all. Have yet to see the 5-packs and of course, no Ultra's.

It'll be nice to get the Ultra's away from being Wal-Mart exclusives- but how much do you want to bet there will be store exclusive paint jobs/repaints out there (ala Target Clone Troopers)?

One a good note, though, the Titaniums toys are cool- cool enough to make me, who no longer collects the 3 3/4 stuff- to come back into the game. They'll look good forever and hold their value well, too (not that I'll ever sell them, but sometimes I like seeing auctions for things I own go for $100's of dollars and think to myself "HA! I paid $5.00 AND I still own it :D" )

:D

WS: I'm also a little worried about which 5 pack to order. I wonder if it would do any good e-mailing them to find out if the images are matched up incorrectly or what. I think they added them both to the site at the same time, so maybe whoever did it just didn;t know one was already out and figured it didn;t matter whihc one was 1st and 2nd.

It wouldn't hurt to ask them, that's for sure.

I SNAGGED AN ULTRA GUNSHIP TODAY! w00t! :D

NOW- just need the 5-packs and the X-Wing and the Celebration III X-Wing- being a completist is a PAIN. :p

the Wal-mart website says they are 1:24 scale are they if they make this line to scale I might get it other wise I no i won't I would really like to see a realistic scaled line of ships.

I got my gunship about 5 days after I ordered it. had I known it was going to be this great of a piece, i would have ordered two. If you have a chance, YOU MUST PICK ONE UP! The packaging looks sharp (flying over geonosis). I would like to have seen a biut of wear or battle damage in the paint job or even a couple of mini clone pilots in the cockpit and in the bay.

If they will only make an arc-170, i would be in heaven.

Absolutely not, they're basically the same size of toy you'd get from a 1/24th scale car, but these are definitely not 1/24th scale, they're smaller than that.

Yea I saw these today at Wal-mart the X-wing and Gunship they look good but I don't like them because there not in scale with each other I think that sucks which is why I never collect these ships.
I think it would be cool if hasbro or whoever would make a small scaled line of toy like in 1:24 or even 1:72 scale with ships and figures kind of like forces of valor.

saw about 8-10 of these at walmart yesterday. of course, had already ordered online. can lay-away if anyone wants & if still there, but honestly the shipping from walmart online was cheaper than I could mail them to anyone in the USA myself. But any overseas folks can let me know.

JediTricks

Scale would be nearly impossible with this line, no 2 boxes would be the same size, you'd have tiny snowspeeders and massive Falcons, long X-wing boxes and tall, mostly-empty TIE Fighter boxes, no way retailers are going to put up with that.

If you would like to see vehicles in scale with each other maybe you may be interested in the Starships line which is planned within the WOTC Star Wars Miniatures line. :yes:

There is a thread about this here (http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?t=29963). :)

Just pick up the RGS. This is awesome. I'm a bit upset that it's turrets are so small, but still truelly awesome.

Does anyone know how many Ultras will be released next year? I heard 4 of them. A Snowspeeder, AT-AT, Droid Tri-Fighter and ARC-170. I really hope there's more than just those.

And this is a little off topic, but. Has Hasbro said anythin more about those Titanium Worlds sets? I'm going crazy,:crazed: I want to see Kamino and Mustafar.

Nothing new about those concepts so far, I have a feeling the lukewarm reception will kill that line.

We'll have to see...I like these new ships so far, but the worlds? Eh.

JT- I had already opened my Rep. Gunship by the time I e-mailed you and asked if you wanted pics. If you still want pics of the loose one I have let me know.

He is right though- the RGS is, indeed, awesome :)

I found these two ships at my Wal-Mart store the other day. When I left this afternoon, we still had three or four of each ship still left. I think the $19.99 (approx) price tag might be scaring off all but the die hard collectors.

I haven't seen these in my area yet, but from what I've read/seen online I am impressed. Sure, these are just repainted action fleet, but at least they look good! If I had more display room I might actually get the x-wing, I'm trying to avoid getting the gunship but I know as soon as I find one it'll be making a trip home with me. I just hope that there is enough interest to keep this line going, that alone might sway me to buy the x-wing(and maybe even another gunship). I love that there are new vehicles in/close to af scale, but I want my freaking Epi. II jedi starfighter!! I don't think I'll ever get an af scaled version of that and I think this gradual realization has caused me to drown myself in new transformers alternators. Anyway. I'll definately be buying a tri-fighter, I passed on the titanium version hoping for something more to this scale, so I'm pleased with that. So how long do you guys think it will be before we get an RoTS JSF? I'm betting the third wave. But I'll most likely hold out for the green version.

just pick up the rep ship and the xwing at my local walmart today, the 20 bucks is a bit steep, i would get more if they were not priced so high.

Read the fine print there- you just ordered Pack 1 with the AT-RT. The pictures on Wal-Mart's site are switched for the 2 packs, and I assume you'll get the one described, not pictured.

Stupid Wal-Mart...though I am forced to admire them for even thinking of offering the Titaniums online- let alone actually selling them that way. I never would have gotten the Gunship or X-Wing since my local Wally-World is awful about stock...and I have only one Wal-Mart to choose from within 100 miles of here (next closest is Billings- 145 miles away...)

I miss my old collector home (Colorado Springs) sometimes...

I am STILL waiting for Kidhuman to send me the first 5-pack...

If you were worrying about his reliability, he's a good trader/seller when he's not having problems. I bought some figures from him a few months ago and everything went fine, just have patience. Or..more patience that is. :D
