I spotted an odd pack out of the wave 3 cases today. Picked up an ARC-170 and a swamp speeder. Got these at a Target.

Also I have been seeing the 3" titanium transformer figures. HAve gotten Starscream, Megatron and Jazz. Dont think I will get the rest though. The Ark sucked. All were at a local WM

Exchanged my ARC-170 I bought today(as I had one already) and got the landspeeder instead. I only need 3 more for the whole set now. One is being re-released(Droid Tri fighter), one other I only have opened(yellow JSF) and I need a Vulture Droid.

thanks to target, i added these 3" to my collection today

TIE Interceptor
B-Wing
Viper Mark VII
Raptor

the b-wing's cockpit can rotate to adjust for the vertical or horizontal flying positions. if only the wings were die cast and not plastic, this would probably be my favorite of the entire line.

Good Titanium Hunting in Austin today!
SW - TIE Interceptors (2)
SW - B-Wings (2)
BSG - A second Ultra Galactica (going to a former work colleague)
BSG - Colonial One (2)
BSG - Raptor (1)
BSG - Viper Mark VII (1)
TF - Smokescreen
TF - Bumblebee


(I wasn't expecting to see new TF Titaniums. How many 3" TF Titaniums are there? I've got 8 now. I see 10 on the Hasbro web page, but Smokescreen and Bumblebee aren't shown, so there are at least 12.)

(And I found a "Scorch" action figure. After hearing tales of how rare this figure was, I thought it was a super lucky find, but it seems Scorch, or a new Scorch variant, is shipping anew.)

Kidhuman
08-23-2006, 06:19 AM
Scorch is being shipped with the latest repack wave. He should have a red holo with the newer release.

There have been 7 released on the TF front that I know of(Primal, Megatron, Unicron, SideSwipe, Jazz, ARK, Starscream). Grimlock, Predaking and Scorponok are coming soon. The others I not know of. Need to be on the look out.

RJarvis

For all those that haven't been following the "where to buy Ultras" thread: starting today (aug 24 2006), Hasbro toyshop has all the new Ultras (AT-At, Falcon, DV Tie, BS Galactica) for sale (they've been incredibly hard, if not impossible, to find here on the east coast)

figrin bran
08-24-2006, 04:41 PM
thanks for the tip on hasbrotoyshop. i just might go there to order the galactica

i picked up another Mark VII Viper because the first one i got has a very noticeable figure print smudge on the left wing. i have hard evidence in case hasbro wants to nab the person guilty of such a poor paint app. ;)

Kidhuman
08-24-2006, 06:22 PM
Do all the Vipers have "battle damage" paint jobs?

figrin bran
08-25-2006, 01:43 AM
yes KH, all the Mark VII Vipers have battle damage but on this one it looks pretty good. the ship itself is light grey with the damage being a darker grey

??? What is this, a Titanium Trade Federation Landing Craft? Or are you talking about the old AF ep1 one?

BTW, I did a search for that exact sentence ("Trade Federation Landing Craft") on ebay UK and it came up empty, so maybe you want to add the link?

BTW2, if this is a plug for your own auction on ebay, please do not post in the Spotters thread but find a better place. Also, please mention that you are auctioning yourself if you are.

Received an email from D&S Toys. They've got titaniums-a-plenty. A couple ultras are $15.99 each. They have a set of 2 and a set of 3 BSG wave 2 ships of the 3.5" titaniums. I'm thinking of maybe ordering the set of 3. I think it was also $15.99 plus shipping.

Finally found the Mace Windu Starfighter and Leia Speederbike at Target. Oddly yesterday I also saw a sign they added saying they were limiting the Collector's Edition Vader to one per customer. I assume they are taking about the Titanium Vader even though the sign was with the regular figure and the titanium Vader have been there for weeks and definately do not warrant any kind of limiting on quantities.

SWAFMAN
10-07-2006, 11:22 PM
Saw at least 4 of the Leia Speederbikes tonight at local Wal Mart.

Snagged 3 BSG ships - Colonial Raptor, Cylon Raider, and Colonial One. They had one of each ship, and that's the most BSG ships I've ever seen at one time on the pegs at either of the 2 Wal Marts in this area, so I grabbed them.

Good hunting in Austin on Friday night!
Mace Windu JSF
TIE Fighter (repaint)
Swamp Speeder (mud repaint)
Droid Tri-Fighter (repaint)
Y-Wing (red repaint)
And, for those collecting the Titanium Transformers...
(3") Scorponok
(3") Grimlock
(3") Predaking
(6") Jetfire
(6") Thundercracker

These latest three 3" Transformer Titaniums bring my count up to 15. To be honest, I'm not terribly impressed with the looks of Scorponok, Grimlock, or Predaking.

On the other hand, I really dig the repainted TIE Bomber (bagged two days earlier). I've always liked the Bomber, and this new one has much more paint detail than the previous version.

Mad Slanted Powers
10-22-2006, 08:23 PM
I had yet to find the Executor. I was in Portland, OR for a couple days this week and found one at the back of the peg at a Fred Meyer, so I bought it. Then I see several when I return home to Bellingham, WA.

Has anyone else experienced some difficulty locating Mace Windu's JSF?

I can find many of the other ships from Wave 10 sitting on the shelves but Mace is eluding me for some reason.
Is it truly a "Limited Edition" item this time as the foil sticker indicates?

Another strange thing I am seeing is that the stores around me now have Wave 12 on the shelves but Wave 11 has yet to appear.

Yeah I have the same thing going on here. I have seen a decent amount of Mace's ship but no sign of wave 11 and with people now find wave 13 I may resort to an online purchase. However I will give it some time since none of these are really a must have.

I've seen the Mace Windu SF twice (always at TRU.) If I see anymore I'll buy it and trade with whoever wants it. I still haven't seen the Wave with the blue Naboo starfighter yet. I picked up the new Arc-170 and the rest of the new ones from that wave last night. The ARC is the best paint job on one of these things to date.

JediTricks
11-07-2006, 08:32 PM
I picked up the blue Naboo Fighter last night at Target, left the Wedge X-wing and other entries there though. The blue Fighter is pretty nice, a better paint scheme than the movie version really.

11-11-2006, 09:29 AM
Found wave 13 today, looks like the CW ARC-170 is packed very lightly followed by the Star Destroyer, Wedge's X-Wing and Jango's Slave 1 look very heavily packed though. Hooray new pegwarmers! :p

Distribution is strange around here, one Wal-Mart got the Blue NSF wave, TRU got the Red Y-Wing wave and then a different Wal-Mart got this wave. :crazed:

Has anyone else experienced some difficulty locating Mace Windu's JSF?
I've only seen one, and the bubble was crushed. I need a mint one to keep closed! I've scoured Austin, and have come up empty on the Windu JSF. Since this piece is looking to be rare in some areas, I would suggest/request that, if you find it in your own hunting grounds, please pick it up for those of us that can't track it down.


- - - - - -

But, back on the "Spotter Thread" topic. The spoils of recent hunting expeditions:
Y-Wing (red repaint)
ARC-170 (Clone Wars deco)
Wedge's X-Wing
Star Destroyer (repaint)
Slave I (Jango's, ever so slightly scuffed repaint)
6" Transformer Optimal Optimus
6" Transformer Scourge
I also bagged a spare Blue Naboo Patrol Fighter which I offer up for trading. (Warstar: If you can snag a mint flavored Windu JSF, then I'll drop the BlooNaboo in the box with the Viper when it goes out which should be soon.)

I'm not too impressed with the Slave I repaint. It looks to me that the package art has more "scuffing" applied than the toy itself. There are, what, maybe four extra black blotches on the thing?

Not loving the Star Destroyer repaint, either. I acknowledge that the Star Destroyer is essentially a grey wedge and could really use a good repaint. But this isn't it. I think some gentle grey gradients would have been a better choice. Not sure if such painting is possible though. (Or... Maybe a bright red version!)

I'm pretty impressed with the Clone Wars deco on the ARC-170.

Picked up wave 14 on Wednesday at Target. I was shocked to see it since I'm usually a couple of weeks behind the intially reports. Also picked up the Mace's Battalion at a different Walmart. Bought the Falcon Transformer with bonus gold titaniums today online with .97 shipping for a total of 32 somthing after tax. Price should be good all day.

Falcon is sold out :p Glad I got mine a while back...

If you mean Mace's purple ROTS Clone Troopers with the new Airborne Trooper are the ones you got then you got them at Target, as these packs are a Target Exclusive.

I know, because I found and bought 2 today! :D

WHY did I buy two? There's a legit variation on the Airborne Trooper's left shoulder. One version has small gray stripes (I saw 4 with this variant today) while the other version has longer gray stripes (I saw 6 of those today). It's a minor variant but I am picky :p

ALSO- they look MUCH cooler than I expected, simply because they have more of a metallic purple finish, AND they're not NEARLY as bright purple as the promo photos would have you believe. I'm glad I got them :)

Now BRING ON WAVE 14 of the TS's! :p

at target, i found and bought CW ani's fighter, grievous' fighter and paploo on speeder.

it looks like they kind of skimped on the hull of anakin's fighter as the top and bottom are screwed together and the fact that the ship is so lightweight would suggest that it's hollow in between.

The only new ship at Target tonight...

Titanium Series 3" Amidala's Star Skiff - the Ep 3 vehicle nails the overall look and feel of the vehicle, using a nice shiny silver for the hull rather than the drab gray they used on the Naboo Royal Starship. Other colors include purple, gold, and black in all the lines which really make them pop. The lines are spot-on, and while it is a decent Titanium Series size, the vehicle also feels a big light. There are no moving parts or features, unfortunately they left out the landing legs which are seen in the movie. The lack of landing gear and the light weight lower the score a bit, so I'm going to say... Grade: B

i can confirm...wave 15 in south Texas...I passed on the Tantive...picked up doubles of the JSF with hyperspace ring...OUTSTANDING titanium!...Scar and the retro viper are pretty cool and the detailing on the star skiff, like JT said is good, but not great...the biggest thing i noticed is that they all seem a bit lighter...either a different base metal or thinner pieces...whichever, the ships of wave 15 don't seem to have the same weightiness about them

i'm not entirely sure how we missed out on 14 (i was REALLY looking forward to anakin's jsf and grievous' fighter...if anyone has dupes of those and wants to trade for the new jsf with hyperspace ring or a retro viper, let me know and we'll work it out)

I haven't seen anything except transformers titaniums in almost 2 months. None of the repaint waves have shown up in my area and you've got wave 15 already!! As much as I hate holiday crowds, looks like I'll be out every waking moment trying to find at least 2 of that JSF and retro viper.

Saw a CRAPPY painted Classic Viper tonight at my Target- VERY disappointed in the paint job that I saw, but the mold was FABULOUS! I'll be hunting down a decent one for sure-

NOTE THAT THE TOP OF THE CLASSIC VIPER PACKAGE HOOK IS NOT PURPLE! It's black like the Star Wars ships- so don't let that throw you off when you're scouring the pegs!

Anyway-

Lately, here's what I have found:

Wal-Mart, Helena, MT:

-Grievous' Ship
-Endor AT-AT
-Anakin's JSF

Wal-Mart, Bozeman, MT

-CW ARC-170's

Target, Bozeman, MT:

-Amidala's Ep 3 ship

STILL no Blue Naboo or Bat Dam Snowspeeder- did the Snowspeeder get bumped from the wave or am I seeing Wave revisions already?...:(

The Modal Nodes tins are shelf-warming here...

Found the rest of Wave 14 yesterday- still after the following ships:

-Bat Dam TIE Fighter to keep closed (Wave 11)
-Green SwampSpeeder repaint to keep closed (Wave 11)
-Blue Naboo to keep closed and 1 to open (Wave 12)
-Bat Dam Snowspeeder to keep closed and 1 to open (Wave 12)
-Republic Gunship with Black/Green to keep closed (Wave 12)

-ALL of Wave 15
-ALL of Wave 16

Heh- hey JT-

So much for our fears that 3 repaint waves in a row would kill then line! I've barely found them at all :p


ALSO- got select figures from the last Saga Wave yesterday from the Helena, MT Wal-Mart:

-Holo Commander Cody (56)

-442nd Siege Battalion Trooper

-5th Fleet Security Trooper

-Kit Fisto CW version (so he can fit in the $9.98 Clearance Kit Fisto Target Repaint JSF I got :p)

-R5-J2 (just cause he's black and looks cool next to the old POTJ black R2 unit)

I left the camo Battle Droids (Super and regular) though they all look cool and the Sith Training Maul (whose eyes were painted HORRIBLY).

While some of you are enjoying waves 13-15, I was FINALLY able to get wave 11 at my local Meijer store yesterday. I was really starting to worry, but now I have hope that the rest will start showing up.

The strange thing is that my local Wal Mart's pegs have been void of any SW 3" Titaniums for many weeks now and there are only eight or so peg warming Titanium Transformers hanging so it's not like they are lacking the space to re-stock or anything.:confused:

I thought I had missed out on the Ultra AT-AT, but found one at Fred Meyer yesterday. The package was torn in the front where it says Titanium Series, but since it was $15.99, I figured I would get it to open. Since this is the first ULTRA that I have opened, I was wondering if there is a way to separate the AT-AT from the base.

At an Austin Target:
Anakin's Jedi Starfighter
Endor AT-AT
BSG Classic Viper
And at WalMart:
TF Rodimus
TF Thundercracker
TF Optimus Prime (a "battle worn" repaint!)
A couple of comments...

First, the latest wave of 3" Transformers Titaniums (Galvatron, Rodimus, Thundercracker, and Optimus Prime) have slightly different packaging which includes the tagline "Generation 1" on the redesigned lower front sticker. Both Galvatron and Rodimus weren't introduced until the TF Movie, so I wonder what they are up to.

Second, at least in my local WalMart, the price of Titaniums is now $5.88. (Still $4.99 at Target.) This confirms Seduced's WalMart price increase report over here (http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showpost.php?p=520401&postcount=5). Very annoying! So much for the "falling prices" advertisements! Here's hoping Target and Toys'R'Us get good stock shipments!

Massive reset going on at our local wallyworld. Two aisles of clearance toys moved down past the hardware section. The large Titanium figures for $11, I think. The transformer set that includes the two gold MicroMachine ships is marked down to about $25.88. The ships look more bronze than gold, though. Those Vader masks with the voice processor are down to about $7 now. Some other SW stuff, too.

Ooh I'm psyched for some of these. I dig the repaint of Slave-One. I'll have to get several Redux Venators, Sail Barge meh I'll get one, same with snowspeeder. Didn't know about the Pegasus, but it looks good, so I'll get it. In fact I'll probably ge another to look like a background vehicle for my "Rendevous at Sullust" diorama.

I found the AT-TE and 2 Patrol Dewbacks at my TRU tonight as well, only bought the AT-TE and now I see it's the only one from 07-w1 not being refreshed in wave 2 (though maybe a later revision). Lousy Hasbro! Sorry I didn't think to pick up the dewbacks for someone here.


AT-TE is a'ight, only the top shells are metal but it fools you well into thinking more is. The hips move but without knees and ankles it's sorta moot, and the main turret rotates. I can't get any of the ball turret cannons to move, I suspect they don't. The main cannon is slightly stubbier than I was expecting, it's acceptable this way due to breakage threats and such, but on mine it's also bent upwards a little. I dig that they sculpted a real underside on this. The thing I like the most about this AT-TE is it stands tall, it's not a ground-hugger like the LEGO version or even the Hasbro Action Fleet one, this may mean the Titanium stands TOO tall but it works for me. The paint is weathered heavily but obviously a mask because it doesn't cover certain areas



I really dig the packaging on this wave. It's full of bright colors that draw you towards the SW aisle (as if we needed bright colors to do so. ;))Not me, the dang Titanium 3" Transformers are all bright and always mixed in with SW, so I was using that as a deterrent to tell SW/BSG vehicles from TF figures.



I've seen wave 14 restocked at several Targets, but no Paploo by the time I get there.

Warstar..
on the Tant IV I have seen 2 dift dirty versions... is their a non-dirty solid white 1 out there??

I have one that barely has ANY "weathering" on it at all- it's almost pristine- enough to really stand out from a heavily weathered version of the ship.

This is not a variation per se, but it is a paint application difference, which gives the ship a different overall "look."

I have of each of the ships already but I am always on the look out for ones to keep closed so I can open the ones with the worst packing job :) I was going to open one of the 2 Tantives I already found but then after seeing the weathering variant, I can't bring myself to open one :(

I have 1 Invisible Hand open but I have another one exactly like it closed (it's a clean version, actually) since I have a dirty and clean version of that ship, too. I probably won't open a "weathered" darker one, but there is a still a chance I might- although Grievous's ship is unique as a flagship where the Tantive IV as a Corellian Corvette there could be thousands out in the galaxy so I don't mind having more than one open.

JediTricks
02-14-2007, 05:06 PM
I ended up finding at Target last night 5 of the vehicles (Vader's JSF, Sith Speeder, Grievous' Starfighter, Ep 2 Jedi Starfighter, and AT-ST) so I bought them except Vader's JSF. That was pretty cool, really brought my collecting spirits back up. I still need the Tantive IV, BSG Classic Viper, and Anakin's Clone Wars JSF, but at least I nailed over half my list.


AT-ST is pretty nifty, not quite as nice as the AT-AT but decent none the less. Good sculpt, good use of metal, decent if uneven paint. The only thing I don't dig is that the chin gun sticks out so far when raised.

Ep 2 Jedi Starfighter is so small but works so great with that hyperdrive ring. Nice paint, nifty opening cockpit, nice sleek profile. Use of metal is a little underwhelming, but what is there works great for holding the wedge's thin shape.

Grievous' Starfighter is nifty and whooshable. Sculpt is very cool, landing gear while difficult to pry down is a keen touch, lots of paint. Only things I don't like are the non-clear non-painted black canopy, and the weathering seems a tad over the top.

Maul's Sith Speeder is a real surprise entry, I dig it way more than expected, and it's super whooshable! Unlike all the Speederbike sets, dedicated Maul rider is in scale to the bike. Paint work is great, even Maul's face is painted - I wonder what VT would have made of that and the subtle green energy vents, I bet he would have dug it. Only complaint is the crazy amount of paint weathering also lacking all subtlety.




Anyone else worried about the fact that 1/2 a year will pass with only 3 new Titanium 3" waves being released? Hasbro is probably planning a lot of little releases in wave revisions to back the line up on shelves... I don't understand, what do you mean?

Hasbro didn't bring anything new to Toy Fair, that's true, but last year they had surprise wave after wave - not just repaints - that came by without prior notice, so hopefully this year will be the same. I just hope they keep this line's momentum going until Summer - that's when it'll kick back in with the kids.


PS- Thanks JT! 5 ships ordered for $29.79- about $.30 more than buying 5 at Wal-Mart's inflated $5.88 price-point without tax! Not too shabby bad!Glad I could help you guys out with that. Yeah, cheaper than the tax and the gas, I just wish they were a little more timely and consistent with the HTS website stocking so I wouldn't have to worry about missing stuff.

This morning I ordered a handful of Titaniums from the Hasbro Toy Shop. And, of course, later today I saw some of them at a local Wal-Mart. (Of course, between quantum physics, the uncertainty principle, and Murphy's Law, I suspect that the toys would not have been there if I had not placed the order.)

Wal-Mart's stock didn't cover everything I ordered, so it is all for the best.

Some good hunting, this HTS order, and an assist from Warstar, bring me completely up to date on the recent waves. (Still needing a second Windu JSF which I'll likely order from D & S Toys (http://www.dnstoys.com/).)

JT, I think I've seen a Blockade Runner recently. If you like (drop me a PM), I'll snag one (or two?) if I see it again.

Warstar
02-16-2007, 04:55 PM
Heh- well I have been lucky with Tantive's I suppose. Since you're opening one JT I'll snag one in any pacakge shape if I see it.

Otherwise, what I meant there was that I bet Hasbro will have many little wave revisions for 2007 Wave 2 (Wave 17 in March) and 2007 Wave 3 (Wave 18 in June) that, along with the new ships, will contain the latest ships in order to give the Titanium line more of a shelf presence.

It's true we got a TON of waves in the recent past but that's either due to them getting rid of excess produced inventory in preparation to scrap the line (unlikely) or to get the line more established so they can trickle in new product over time (most likely :))

SO! Though there aren't many new ships coming out between now and June, it'll be great to see some of the more recent releases sitting on the pegs- even if I have them all already anyway :p


(On another note- I wonder what VT would have thought about the minifigs and ships coming out with the Death Star Vader TF...I would have loved to hear his opinion on the TIE Fighters :( RIP VT...)

My local TRUs, Targets, and WMs had a few leftovers of '07 wave 01, and Targets had a few leftovers of Wave 15 r1 (which is basically wave 14 and 15). I'm still missing the Tantive IV, Classic Viper, and Clone Wars JSF though, wonder why those are the hardest to get around here right now.


I had put this one back once at Target already, so I picked this same one up again and bought it this time. :p

Titanium Series Battlestar Galactica "Scar" Cylon Raider - a lighter repaint of the original, plus with the actual red "eye" and poorly-realized scarring around the "face". The lighter shade is a bit too lavender but brings out all the details the original hid. The visibility makes a world of difference, it even seems more wooshable. Grade: B

Ridiculous, IMHO, but I buy so few 3 3/4's that they were worth it.

Hey, don't knock that buck increase, I still pay around $7 dollars a ship from dns toys, and I think thats a great deal. That converts to around £3.60 a ship, which is a bargain when you know that if you can manage to find these ships in a dedicated Sci-fi store over here you'll be paying around $11 a ship in your money.

For those UK collectors, Forbidden Planet have the Invisible Hand/Royal TIE/AT-TE wave on the shelves, and also the Grevious and C3-PO Titanium figures. I've been meaning to buy the Clone Titanium figure, but haven't bothered yet.

And if anyones ordered stuff from DNS toys, the latest wave Sail barge/Imperial Attack Cruiser/BSG Pegasus and Classic Cylon Raider has just shipped apparently. The pre-order of the BSG ones sold out within a day of them going up, I was lucky to bag just the 1 of each!

I was surprised, wasn't expecting them to ship so soon. I was damn lucky to get the Pegasus/Cylon Raider, after I placed my order it disappeared from the listing, I must have had the last pre-order. I'd been checking dns everyday for the new ones to be listed so it must have sold out very very quickly.

R2DToys are listing Titaniums for the first time, never seen them carry them, but for the moment the Pegasus link has an 'email me when available' option, no pre-order yet. I've resorted to Forbidden Planet to pre-ordering extra Pegasus's. :yes:

I've also got the wave before, Royal TIE/Invisible Hand coming along with the sail barge wave, although I had to resort to ebay for the AT-TE as Dave had sold out. Only paid £3.50 from a UK seller though, which I thought was pretty good.

Yeah, the Firespray does look nice in pics, there was a fair bit of complaining about it around the net, but I'm strangley looking forward to it.

I am going Pegasus-waiting mad here, sadly I've only got one coming from DNS. The night I saw the pre-order was up I tried to order two sets of the Pegasus/Classic Raider but it said insufficient stock and I was only able to order one this time around. Lucky though, if I hadn't checked that night I'd have probably missed out.

I've got a another pre-order with Forbidden Planet for 2 Pegasus's and 1 Classic Raider though as an emergency backup, estimated to ship in mid-April. Im also keeping a very close eye on the two brick and mortar FP's in Birmingham, the Classic Viper/Scar wave completely sold out within days of hitting the shelf and I don't expect the Pegasus to hang around if and when they do arrive there.

I had passed on the first BSG stuff, but had been tempted by the Classic Viper. When I saw the Classic Raider, I decided to get them both and the Pegasus. However, there probably aren't any Galacticas around anymore.

Well, Christmas came very early/slightly late (depending on your perspective) today in the form of a lovely package of Titaniums!

Got the previous wave, Dewback, Invisible Hand, Royal TIE, Swamp-thing-xwing and AT-TE. Plus the latest wave with the BSG Titaniums.

The Firespray is indeed very nice, and I love the Republic/Imperial Stardestroyer repaint. But its clearly the BSG ones that steal the show, the Pegasus is a joy and the Cylon Raider is, IMHO, one of the best Titaniums so far.

Feels good to be entirely caughty up, not that it will last long!

A buddy found the new ones at WM in Las Vegas last night, lucky sucker.


I didn't realized the Buck Rogers Earth Starfighter had a hole that could accommodate the Galoob stands, that's pretty cool, I lost mine years ago. That ship's design is from Ralph McQuarrie, it was the concept he came up with for the BSG Colonial Viper (since both shows were done by Glen Larson, he was able to "borrow" it over to Buck Rogers).

Went hunting for the latest wave, so of course I spotted not 1, not 2, but FOUR Paploos and FOUR Hyper-Ring JSFs. All this after I shipped in 2 Paploos from Warstar and 2 Rings from Hasbro.

The pegs are completely jammed right now with the last couple of waves, sandrcrawlers, and Transformers. Will they even put out the new stuff if the shelves are fully stocked?

britcit3- way to sneak in theose Galoob Titaniums onto your Hasbro picture page (specifically Sebulba's Pod Racer ;)) Also, I like your single pack Yellow Anakin's JSF- remember that the 5-Pack version has brown guns ;)

Anywho, the pegs are clogged here too, dang it. I NEED NEW PRODUCT!

On the upside though I found the 2 BARC Speeder Captain Neyo/Trooper 3 3/4" Battle Pack today- w00t!

I still don't understand the BSG Pegasus feeding frenzy on Ebay- they'll probably be warmers after too long!

I found a Sail Barge, Pegasus and Firespray ship last night. The new ones are hitting now.

Warstar, did you get my PM about the variants?

I picked up the Imperial Attack Cruiser, Luke's Snowspeeder and Amidala's Star Skiff at Target. They had the Sail Barge but the detail is terrible! Passing on that for now.

You mean the wide winged silver ship from the end of ROTS before Anakin choked her? I've had one of those for a while.

Found everything from the new wave except for the new BGS ships. Very annoying. There are almost 10 sail barges peg warming already, not a good sign. If anyone needs one of those or a firespray let me know, not too much interest in those around here, everyone (especially me) just wants the bsg ships.

This I hate the one ship I need is sold out on hasbro.com They have the firespray wave for sale but the Imperial Attack Cruiser is sold out at the moment.

For anyone in the north west, Fred Meyer has Titaniums on sale for $3.99 right now. (Picked myself up a Scar. :))

I went to my local Target and low and behold a BSG Pegasus, an Imperial Cruiser (repaint Venerator) and a Luke's Snowspeeder were bursting on the very full Titanium pegs.

I bought all 3 of them very happily!

Next day I went back and low and behold 2 Jabba's Sail Barges and the BSG 1978 Cylon Raider were sitting in the 3 spots where the ships I had bought the day before occupied!

How cool is that? :D

Went back the next day hoping for the Firespray but no dice- whoever was stocking didn't put more out OR I missed 'em. Either way, the same three peg spaces are now open at my local Target's pegs...I'm hoping they fill up again with more ships I need!

Thank GOD I got my BSG's though- and they're both decent paint jobs AND they're both opened :thumbsup:

now there are Spiderman 3 titaniums clogging the pegs and making it harder to find what i want.

Yeah, I meant to mention that, the idiots at the various retailers are already putting the SM3 titaniums in with the SW which sucks since they're also still putting the Transformers ones in there too.

I've been putting them back where they belong, or (if there isn't room) throwing them on the shelves below. The shelves are very clearly marked star wars, marvel, and transformer titaniums. This usually leaves full pegs of TF and Marvel and maybe a speeder bike or two and a sandcrawler (Maul and Paploo are pegwarming around here) in the star wars section.

Unfortunately, it hasn't worked so far but I'll give it another week before I just start to order everything off the internet and give the brick and mortar retailers a pass.

I hate the fact that all the Titaniums end up on the SW pegs. Why cant Hasbro see this carp happening. Its like the H&V clogging pegs for 9 months around here becuase they cant put them on the right f**king pegs.

Hasbro gave them different numbers! NUMBERS! THAT'S INFALLIBLE! THERE IS NOTHING WRONG! GO BACK TO YOUR HOLE! :p

Ya know, for Spidey 3 they could have at least changed the packaging. I mean the packaging sucks enough as it is for a collector but can you imagine a kid wanting little Spidey and trying to open that? Geesh. They should've changed it to reflect the movie packaging.

What exactly was released for the Spidey Titaniums anyways? The only ones I've really noticed has been Spidey in black and blue/red colorschemes and Harry on his flying snowboard.

Finally found all of the new SW pieces, and snagged a classic Cylon Raider. (The Raider is great!) Still hunting for the Pegasus.

I've seen four 3" SpiderMan Titaniums, Basker. The fourth is Sandman.

My guess on the packaging is simply that they already had the design ready so it was cheaper than coming up with something new.

And I have seen only the 3" Spidey Titaniums you mentioned, but I remember the news on this said there'd be more.

Ther's actually 6 3" spider-man titaniums total right now(two different blue-red spideys). The last of which is the only one actually worth buying. venom - http://hasbro.com/default.cfm?page=ps_results&product_id=18563
Despite what the website says, he's a 3" and very hard to find. If I ever manage to snag one myself I plan on making a keychain out of him.

the TRU exclusive wave of Ultras are out! i bought the Gunship today...was going to get Anakin's JSF as well but that would've been $50 plus tax right there. none of these are really worth that price and if i didn't like that CW gunship so much, i'd pass.

Good find, suffice to say I think I'm not alone in desiring to see some pics!

How did the JSF look, good?

AndyW, i was trying to take pics of the Gunship but alas, the batteries went dead on my camera. sorry, i'll try again tomorrow.

the paint apps are really good on the CW Gunship. the only thing i didn't like is that it was rather difficult to unscrew the vehicle from the base, no thanks to the super long screws that go the length of those base stumps and into the vehicle itself. they leave some unsightly holes on the bottom of the ship and this being the first Ultra that i've bought with this sort of base, i imagine it to be true for the entire line.

the JSF looked really good - i'll see if i can find one to buy tomorrow. it has a dull weathered look to it, which when we're talking about Hasbro's titaniums of any scale are always hit or miss. this one's a hit.

I've only opened one Ultra so far, the AT-AT. I couldn't figure out how to unscrew the vehicle. I would need a long skinny Phillips screwdriver to be able to reach it.

Spotted the 4 Ultra Titaniums at 2 of my local TRUs in this last week, I put up a news story about it but didn't have time to post (I'm having some pain sitting at the desk).

I also spotted the classic Colonial Viper at Target Eagle Rock yesterday, that was a shock.


JT - Does that mean our Hasbro pre-orders are going to ship now, too?In theory, but TRU hasn't actually done that yet, and I have some fear that they're going to cancel orders for no reason - they did this with the Transformers Soundwave reissue a few months back, but it wasn't all the preorders just some, so I dunno. I have seen these sets twice already at the store and held off because I preordered (2 for the price of 1), but every time I've considered buying them and just hoping the TRU.com ones show up, if they do I'd return the ones I bought to TRU for my $50 back (I'm not buying the repaints).

The Jedi Starfighter looks like a shrunken down version of the 3.75" line's version, the cockpit shape, the wings, the thickness, the paint - it looks good, and I would have loved it if it had come out when Ep 3 came out, but once I got the AMT/Ertl die cast model, it blew the doors off anything else that wasn't as good - and Hasbro's version isn't as good.

The TIE Fighter looks dull as dishwater, the shorter wings from the Action Fleet version remain in effect here, and the paint is incredibly plain. I was hoping for some nifty feature, but cannot see one through the packaging, and I can see the original Action Fleet's single gimmick (the underside access bay that slides back) is not present here.

The X-wing looks, to my eyes, downright bad. It's a really boring repaint, as undynamic as it can be, and the repainted droid is a head-scratcher. The new screw holes for the stand appear to be right through the middle of the nose fuselage and the rear fuselage.

The CW Gunship looks decent if you like that paintjob, or loud if you don't. :p
