I have been buying up a lot of the Star Wars Titanium Series ships lately and have been finding a few with the word Limited on the package front. Just how limited are these? Anyone know?
thanks
Barry

Ah yes, the chase vehicles, they aren't very limited really, they're "limited" to 1 per case for as long as that case ships, and then sometimes they'll show up in future cases again at 1 per case but not supplanting the wave's 1 per case vehicle. I don't believe there is a set number on these, and I don't think they're found in every wave anymore.

Thanks JT. Much appreciated. I also notice that the ones that I have picked up on Ebay are a little different but I write that off to the fact that I am from Canada and our cards are Bilingual.

Yeah, foreign cards always are like that. At least it's not tri-lingual for Mexico as well, they pull that sometimes. I believe all the limited ones have the silver-foil name plates on the packaging as well, is that the case with foreign?

Yes JT. Our limited ones do have the Silver foil labels. I have also noticed now that you mentioned it that the languages on the back of ours includes the tri-lingual (Mexico) as well. So, they are not bi, they are tri, LOL

Hey. Another thing I just noticed is on the Sith Infiltrator I won off of Ebay. It came out of California and has the word Limited on it but the label is not foil. Man, too many varis in packageing. Gonna be a long winter. LOL

"Maniacal?" *Sniffle* That's possibly the nicest thing you've ever said about me :D

Seriously- that Infiltrator sounds like a re-pack or a mispack OR a wrong sticker of some kind. Pics? Also, inspect for cuts on the side (I've gotten good cutting my opened ones so slightly that I could put them back in the package and no one would be the wiser ;)

The Tri-Linguals (of which I only have the Wal-Mart Wave 4 Wookie Flyer) have weird packaging, IMHO. The generica ship design is ok, but the American ones are better ;)

Well, it is definatly not a repack. I have been collecting diecast 1/64th cars for 10 years now and this one is clean. Here is a pic for those in the know

I just posted over in "L.A. Found": I snagged a repainted "mud spattered" Titanium swamp speeder at Toys'R'Us, that's different to the "clean" one I got at Target. I'm curious as to which one's the rarity.

S-trooper, that's wild, I have no idea what's going on there, it shouldn't be limited, the Sith Infiltrator is not a limited-release vehicle in the US cases, and that sticker isn't silver-foil; oh, and there's no tri-lingo on the front, is that right for foreigns? Maybe they screwed up the sticker-printing for the foregin releases, or maybe that is a foreign limited, I dunno, very weird.


Scribe, it's not a rarity, it's from the first repaint wave, #11 - http://www.sirstevesguide.com/index.php?categoryid=13&p2_articleid=238

there's no way to determine which is more rare at this point.

Thanks, Tricks. I did a bit of digging prior to your reply. I was shocked that there's a few Titaniums that have come and gone...very glad to have got the Clone Wars Gunship repaint and the Ep III Falcon. Sad to have missed the Gunship variants. VERY glad to see a couple of the upcoming ships in Clone Wars repaint (and Padme's Skiff....yay! Now, how about an Ep 2 Flying Wing?)

Did I miss the Arc Fighter Clone Wars repaint, or is it not here yet?

Has ANYONE seen the Ultra Galactica on shelves? I bought a couple of the regular Galactica Titaniums. They're pretty nice. (Although judging by how poor the opener 2 parter was on Friday, we may not have those toys around too long! :D:D:D)

hey JT
Believe it or not, this one came out of California on an Ebay win. I think I will email the seller and ask if this came off of a retail shelf somewhere or out of a fresh case. If I find out, I will update. Info on card: One language, English on the back and the front. The UPC on the bottom is 653569133285. I just did a magnifying glass check of the packaging and it is Mint sealed from the factory. Guess we have an interesting one here eh?? Definatly a keeper for the Oddball part of my collection I think.:thumbsup:

(and Padme's Skiff....yay! Now, how about an Ep 2 Flying Wing?)Yeah, that's the one I want too.


Did I miss the Arc Fighter Clone Wars repaint, or is it not here yet?Not out yet, part of next year's lineup, wave 16 or later.


Has ANYONE seen the Ultra Galactica on shelves? I bought a couple of the regular Galactica Titaniums. They're pretty nice. (Although judging by how poor the opener 2 parter was on Friday, we may not have those toys around too long! :D:D:D)I have seen it twice at the store, both Targets, the first time I bought it and the damn thing broke the screw off in the Galactica, the second time was months later and I had them bring me the case, then returned the broken Galactica for my $$$ back - naturally the broken Galactica had a better paintjob. :p

I thought the opener last Friday was pretty good m'self.


Pretty wild S-trooper, I bet Warstar will be able to sort this out, he's the ravenous variant-monster for these things.

Hey JT. Thought I would put all of the pics together on one reply so all can have a look and maybe come up with an answer. I have emailed the seller in California to find out if she got it from a retail peg or out of a sealed case.
Here they are:

Wow, that was fast. I just got the reply to my email from the Ebay Seller in California and she said she got it out of a fresh sealed case about a month ago. Now the mystery deepens, LOL

Hmm, maybe Hasbro rereleased it into a new cast assortment with a packaging change and we didn't notice, I haven't paid attention to it since it came out. I'd be surprised if that were the case though.

My local WM just expanded their 3" Titanium section by another row and restocked it. There were a few Infiltrators on the pegs but they didn't have "limited" sticker on them.
I do see that there is an auction for one on Ebay currently that is from California and it has the "limited" sticker. Maybe it is the same seller as the one that S-Trooper got his from?
Item number: 200035073004
The price is reasonable enough, $3.99

Yup, same seller. And I'll bet you will never guess who owns 2 of them now, LOL. Just had to.

Well, without the rainbow foil, I would have to call this ship an error- though a BLATANT one at that...

...unless the next crop of "Limited" ships that come out no longer use foil stickers!

Still, I'll be looking for this Infiltrator...might be something I'd get if I came across.

(If you want to part with one of your two, I'd be game as well...I dig weird variants sometimes :D)

Anyway, I saw AT-AT's on the pegs today of the Non-Endor variety...it's been a while since I have seen them hanging around :D
