Entertainment Earth is going to sell some cases of them! :D

SO! The Naboo Fighter, ARC-170, TIE Bomber, Red Swampspeeder (and the peg-warming) Landspeeder can still be yours for a slightly inflated price :p

Enjoy!

Hopefully they will break em down and sell em loose too. I missed 1 or 2 of them.

This is the one wave that I missed. I bought the first 2 waves then for some reason I just gave up on this wave and now I've got every wave since.

Well, here's you chance to get more.

Or to get some hook ups for the ones you missed :)

You buying them Warstar?

KH,

If you need anything other than the Naboo fighter, I can help you out. All of the rest were hanging on the pegs at my local Meijer store last week.

Nah- got all the Wave 3's I needed back in the day, and there are STILL Landspeeders hanging on the pegs here.

Just thought I would post this about EE in case someone did want to get them.

*Can't wait for the 5-packs :D*

I wonder if they'll be in the old or new packaging? I think I'd rather have them be the old packaging just so I don't have to buy them all again.

Later,

I assume they will be in the old packaging- I highly doubt that Hasbro would make them from EE in the new stuff exclusively for them- EE would make a bigger deal out of it.

No, more than likely it's overstock that EE bought cheaply to sell at a MUCH higher price :p

If they have new packaging I would have to go ballistic- and collect them all :(

FYI. I just saw these at Target, and it's the first packaging.

Ascel....how much are they?

Well, they were $4.99 each but someone (scalper?) must have gotten wind of them being there. There were at least 2-3 of each ship hanging on their pegs for the last 6-8 weeks or so. I first saw them hanging there on Feb. 6th. I usually stop by about twice a week looking for new releases and they were not moving at all except for the Naboo Starfighters. This morning I stopped by and everything but the peg warming Land Speeders were gone. :confused:

Here is my original post where I had spotted them:

Thanks for looking and the offer. IF you do happen to find them again, I would be interested in the ARC and the swamp speeder.

Warstar

GAH!

Go here! MUCH cheaper!

Of course, it sounds like these ships are turning up everywhere as it is- and in new packaging according to JT.

*SOB* MORE variations to find (packing variants I consider major enough to pick up)

Good luck :)

Kidhuman

I actually found them at Target today so I am good to go.

Warstar
03-21-2006, 07:07 PM
Were these old ships in new packaging? If so, were all of them that way?

*Crosses fingers*

Kidhuman

Here are some pics of the packaging......

Warstar
03-22-2006, 12:17 AM
That's the old packaging- at least on that one (thank goodness).

Others?

Kidhuman
03-22-2006, 09:21 AM
All the same, I bought the TIE today, same packaging. Also they are not in Targets system, they wont scan at the register here, so its probably the same packaging all around. I keep getting charged 4.50 for them.

Maybe I was mistaken about the new packaging, I didn't pay close attention at the time.

Warstar
03-23-2006, 05:32 PM
Well, I saw 3 of the Wal-Mart Wave 3 ships at Target today (Naboo Fighter, TIE Bomber and Landspeeder) and they were all in the old style packaging.

I hope they don't remake them in the new stuff...though I have to admit my Wal-Mart Wave 4's next to my Retail Wave 4's (esp. the Green ROTS JSF) look pretty cool- you can really see the design changes (the fonts used, the spacing, etc. :))

maybe i should've started a new thread for this but for those who missed out on WM wave 2, don't despair! click on your mouse as quickly as possible and head on over to hasbrotoyshop.com!

they have AT-RT, droid fighter, Y Wing, A Wing, Star Destroyer, Republic Gunship, Snowspeeder, yellow Ani's starfighter

Warstar
03-29-2006, 12:49 AM
Holy CRAP! COOL!

...PLEASE don't let them be in new packaging...:sleeping:

Anyway- I wonder if the 2-packs will appear for sale on the site soon since they are listed there?

We can only hope...

I may order a Tri-Droid since I realized that the carded one I have has the cockpit tilted to the side, while it's an interesting variant I would like to have a version with the cockpit properly aligned. :D Though it would suck to order one from them and then get a tilted cockpit version. >_<

If I do, WS, I'll let you know if it's new packaging.

Warstar
03-29-2006, 05:06 PM
Thanks!

Though I am at work and not near my opened Tri-Droid (which I got from the opened 5-pack #1), I seem to recall that the ball rotates- so you may not have a variant, just something that shifted in package.

Anyone near one right now that can post as to whether or not the Tri-Fighter's cockpit revolves? :)

JediTricks
03-29-2006, 06:38 PM
Droid Tri-Fighter's cockpit indeed rotates.

Warstar
03-29-2006, 07:11 PM
Thanks JT-

So LTBasker? Save yourself some cash :)

LTBasker
03-29-2006, 08:32 PM
Yeah, I realized it's not a variant, I just think it looks better. :D

Warstar, i just got an email stating that my wave 2 ships have shipped. once i get them, i post what sort of packaging they came in.

Wave 8 is out now, it includes WM wave 1 (Falcon, blue TIE Fighter, Boba's Slave 1, and Luke's X-wing) plus a green Ani Jedi Starfighter and a couple of WM wave 2 vehicles (AT-RT and Republic Gunship). These are hitting stores now, I've seen them at Target and WM.

Kidhuman

I have spotted them as well and picked up the AT-RT that has eluded me for so long.

Slicker
05-19-2006, 06:06 AM
Is the AT-RT the same exact one (i.e. packaging) that was released last year?

Congrats to SS, JT, VT, and anyone else that worked to, or advocated for, getting the forums back online.

Wasn't there some mention of a Battlestar Gallactica series of the large Titaniums? I have looked high and low (well, ok, I've looked about 5 times at both local Wal Marts), and cannot find these ships.

The galactica (new version) will be released in titanium ultra format in July. There is also talk of 3-3/4" BSG figures being released in the titanium format (ala bossk, sand trooper, vader, and fett) later this year. The only BSG ones showing up now are the Viper MKVII, galactica, and the cylon raider in the smaller titanium format.

Swaffy, the 6" Ultra Galactica doesn't come out for a few more months.


mtriv, Hasbro has confirmed that they'll be doing a Titanium Forged Figure of a Cylon.

mtriv73 & JT, are the smaller BSG titaniums exclusives to any one retailer (target, WM, etc), or are they supposedly at more than one chain? Thanks.

JediTricks
05-21-2006, 01:50 PM
They're not exclusive at all, they're just TS wave 6, they ship with SW Titaniums. I have seen the 3" BSGs at TRU and Target already.

Kidhuman
05-21-2006, 04:23 PM
I found mine at WM and then saw them also in Target. My guess is Kmart will get them in 2009

Thanks y'all. Now I know what to look for...

SWAFMAN
05-27-2006, 10:36 AM
Well, I probably missed all the good BSG ships because I didn't know they were mixed in on the same pegs with the SW titanium single-pack ships. All I found was one battlestar at one wallyworld. The other store had no small titaniums at all, not even SW ones. Does anyone know if the first wave of BSGs is still shipping, or if I have likely missed boat on these?

JediTricks
05-28-2006, 02:45 AM
They are still shipping in several later wave's cases, various revisions too.

Been looking on every visit to WM and Target lately. Only the one Gallactica so far. Still keeping hopes up to score the others. Thanks.

I'm not sure how WM's shipping is, but Target is starting to get a little bogged down in TS pegwarmers. Try TRU if you can.
