I'm excited for the MP Grimlock US debut. But don't like the fact that it's a TRU excl. Difficulty of finding it & price will be factors. This coupled with the EU wave being a TRU excl. also sucks. Why is TRU getting everything?!!? dammit.

the other new TF unveiled was cool. The new GI Joe stuff not as exciting as SW or TF. Kinda lame in fact.

TRU's Transformers exclusives are always easy to find (though I'm currently 0 for 6 in attempts to find Transformers Animated Arcee and Cybertron Ratchet) so I wouldn't worry at all.

And I thought the Joe Resolute packs were very exciting to see.

just picked up the Phantom Menace wave of BOGO legacy two packs for 7.99 at Burbank TRU. There was one holo Sidious pack on the shelf, but customer service brought out another case for me, so I got 3 more sets. They were in the ad, so I didn't feel bad asking. Should be a couple of the others left there. This was around 8:45 tonight.
They also had the Uncle Milton make a mini saber kit. Saw this in the Toyfair pics, but did,'t expect it so soon. Cute. 12.99. About the same size as the Radio shack led sabers a couple years back, but all plastic.

Picked up wave 3 of the Disney/Star Wars figures yesterday. The Chipmunk/Ewoks and Donald Duck/Stormtrooper are my favorites of the set.

Some of the students from our school performed at Disney yesterday, so I got to spend a few hours "backstage" at Disneyland. Because the entire time non-Disney people are behind the scenes within the innards of the park they are escorted, I spent a lot of time with one of the Disney liaisons. She was very nice about all our questions and concerns, so I asked about Star Tours and the timetable of the change for 2011. She confirmed it would be redone, but said she didn't know when exactly it would happen, and advised me to ride it as much as I could while we were there.

Grimmy is the only exclusive officially announced that I'm aware of (and the last set of G1 reissues was a surprise if I remember correctly), but we do still have several unreleased Animated figures who have yet to find a home: Hot Rod, Blackout, Goldfire Grimlock, Hydrodive Bumblebee, and Wasp.

speaking of TFs, Burbank Target had the 9.99 deluxe and 19.99 voyager sale goin on. They had several Voyager Bludgeons and at least 1 recon ironhide and 1 defender Optimus Prime (gray redeco). The coolest thing there though was the scout class Brakedown. I put him on the top pegs behind everyone -if anyone needs him. Very cool homage to the g1 stunticon.
As far as SW, they had a few of the TLC value packs and the same ROTJ remnants they've had forever. There was one Cad Bane though with a Vebb sticker, so they may've stocked recently.

Yes, I saw some of these at Target WeHo the other day. I thought they looked pretty meh, the new bodies actually seem worse than the originals, I'm sorry to report.


WM Duarte had a single Hondo Ohnaka CW figure, so I bought it. I also picked up 2 CW Tank Gunners at TRU Burbank, which I didn't realize is now the cheapest source for basic figures at $6.99. If only TRU stocked TLC basic figures at all instead of just CW and Saga Legends.

Tycho
02-23-2010, 10:54 PM
Hondo Ohnaka is a cool figure / character, isn't he?

He doesn't appear to be the best articulated, action figure, but I haven't opened one yet.

I bought 3 as that's all I think I can use - as a standard pirate to be around Jabba, Ziro, and on his own as a pirate that captures Dooku, just like he was used in that episode.

But I really like CW expanding their figure sources beyond just Republic and Separatist players.

JediTricks
02-23-2010, 11:00 PM
Clone Wars figures generally have less articulation.

The figure is ok, I think he needed articulated wrists for sword action though, leaving that out was a blunder. There's also something un-dynamic about the figure, the way the coat and the body don't really have much pose potential. And the gun slips into the pocket in a sloppy manner. The goggles are glued on for no reason, I pulled the glue off and they painted the eyes underneath, it's better with them being removable.

The lowest I've sen them is $40. If they do drop in price, we should probably inform each other via PM so as not to tip off any lurking scalpers. If I see anything, I'll keep you posted.

TF fans --those lookin for deluxe Brawn can find him at Glendale target. Dlx is still 9.99 and they had Gears, and Dirge. They had one LC Shadow Command megatron too. The redeco looks better than the original version.

I got the Legends Class Devastator / Constructicon set at Wal-Mart tonight.

(It's a Wal-Mart exclusive.)

This set is very cool. I saw JediTricks' months ago and really liked it then.

It's on scale to Legends Optimus Prime, Jetfire, Megatron, Starscream, and Fallen. Pretty fun.

7 vehicles form Devastator as they add the long-bed truck Overload to the traditional Constructicon set (with some name-changes like Rampage and Hightower because Bonecrusher was already used in the Bay movies and Hook is no longer a part of the team, with Hightower being added after his successful performance in the Police Academy movies).

yes, they have. I think i have extras of the subsequent lines' posters. Last year i had a request from some guy regarding the IJ figure line poster -was going to begin talks to send it to him & then he disappeared. His loss I guess. Dunno what happened.

had to drop a friend off in Santa Clarita area, so i popped into the WM on the way back and saw the new IM2 figs. Couldn't resist the War Machine (movie version) - picked him up. S*(^ty price though, 7.88. I bit the bullet, b/c i knew i'd regret it later if i never saw him again. Anyone who knows a lot about these figures, please PM. Gotta question. Unfortunately, they didn't have the comic series version.

lookin at my CW Bly -makes me want to open Gree (& the multitude of other stuff i need to open - Fett Evolutions, hoth speeder bike patrol, AOTC wave TLC figures, arctic Snake eyes, HOH Firefly (he might stay carded for a bit), Legends Devastator, CW ARF trooper, just too many!!!!!)

Perhaps, but that would be a waste of money IMO- why not go to Michaels and do it yourself for much less?

Well, with rumors you never know- and I don't remember anything solid being revealed in 2008, but then again, I don't have time to read through every toyfair/comicon blurb. Back then, I had just stopped collecting Hasbro, and thought these large items would hold their value until I could decide what to do. They are still selling on the bay, so I might have to go that route.

Mindwipe was probably 19.99 as all Transformers Voyagers are on sale for that price.
Most Target stores aren't showing the discount on Voyagers though, and that store I think has the tags at $22 and change.


Thanks to Jango Speck for hooking me up with the nifty TAC AAT tank. I was just thinking about tracking one of these down, so he really saved me a mountain of trouble. And nobody ever told me that this AAT is not just superior in deco, but they took out the stupid exploding canopy gimmick so it stays on right.


And thanks to Chaddy for hooking me up with Transformers Voyager Mindwipe! :thumbsup:


Sightings... um, not much. Target WeHo had a bunch of Iron Man 2 movie toys, including horrible light-up IM and deep dive IM and supersonic IM, then they had a single comic line figure, Stealth IM, which I stashed. PM for IM.

In the zone with IM2 figs today. (Not collectin them all, but lovin em!!) TRU Los feliz had Marks 1,2,3, stealth, hypersonic(sp?), deep dive, crimson dynamo!, and War Machine comic version x2. I picked up one, couldn't resist. Stashed the other one. PM for location. (or call or text if u have my #). They did NOT have movie war machine (which i was lookin for) and Mark 4, 5 or higher.

SW: they had remnants of ESB wave with some TPM mixed in. New AT-AT driver, Imp. Scanning tech, Cloud city wing guard (human), Snowtrooper, TPM Obi, gungan warrior. All i can remember.

TF: nothing exceedingly great. Looks like they stocked scout class though. If i don't respond to PM right away, I'm working swing shift & will be back probably 11-12a.

TRU Los Feliz had some of those ESB wave leftovers that bikerscout mentioned. I bought the AT-AT Driver. They have barcode stickers slapped over their barcodes though and aren't in the system. I wonder if this is part of the upcoming exclusive wave thing.


TRU La Cienega had 2 Arcees, 2 Batwings. I bought both Arcees (1 for a buddy and 1 to replace my wonky one) and 1 of the Batwings.

Just moved all the Just Found USA threads out of their state sections and into the USA section.

That'll either fix itself in the next few hours, or when Steve deletes those sections.

JediTricks
03-07-2010, 12:03 AM
We've been doing some cleaning up of the forums, moving a lot of threads, so Steve updated the thread count. It's possible that you had a number of duplicated counted posts, perhaps from a few moved threads. It's also possible that the system is underreporting your count and will give you a different count when the system next gets a tables cleanup. But we haven't been deleting threads themselves, so either your count got slowly inflated as time went on and is now reading true, or is being underreported pending the next system cleanup. I don't know yet which that would be.

EDIT: Steve just ran the post count system cleanup, so whatever it's reporting now is accurate. It doesn't look like your count changed from when you last posted, so my guess is you had hundreds of double-counted posts, probably from moved threads.

I was able to pick up both sets at the Target in Valencia about two weeks ago, I didn't hesitate on these like the Xmas sets because they sold out fast at both of my local Targets. I guarantee that these will be gone way before Easter and I don't know if they will get any more shipments before Easter.

WeHo Target had a few Clone Wars Aayla Secura figs, I bought one. They gave her a new, slimmer jetpack (Jango styled but Bly colors), and a removable small armor plate over her collarbone area that also has a removable breathing mask, plus she has removable goggles. The figure is a little awkward though, I don't think the articulation works too well with her slender limbs, and her upper body being SO much smaller than her lower body makes her look like she has a huge hips and butt - on the show, her torso was a little more balanced even with the tiny waist, but here they let the bulkier shoulder design carry that. Oh, and watch out for mispainted eyes, one of the ones they had was walleyed and my figure has it a little too.

I have The Force Unleashed for the Wii. I haven't gotten into it.

I played for about 15-20 minutes in the first level and didn't beat that Jedi as Darth Vader. I also love Wookiees and though I like the Dark Side, I don't like killing Wookiees.

Don't you think PETA should protest this game?

Anyway, after about 15-20 minutes I returned to MLB for the Wii and my continuous attempt to help the San Diego Padres make it into the World Series. (I think even the stupid video game system is out to deny me!)

Anyway, for "Star Wars for the day" I am posting here and I set up scenes with my Galactic Heroes. After I get offline, I'm going back to my Wii and playing more baseball. I WILL sweep the Chicago Cubs and I love striking out Milton "Bad Attitude" Bradley.

That would be sweet if I could mix the two games and get Darth Vader into Chicago's dugout. Then I'd know just what to do with Milton Bradley, Soriano, Derek Lee, et all.

It's meant to help cast Darth Vader as a true villain in the game, as well as give you a taste of the Force powers before you have to then start over and earn them all.

I saw the ESB wave at both Smeagol Rock and Pasadena Target. Not the revisions mind you but the assortment with R2-X2 and Wilrow. Unfortunately, it seems like heading to Beverly/La Cienega Ross first thing costed me a shot at the concept Snowtrooper. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

I found the game to be disappointing- the graphics/concept art was cool, but the game play is to much hack and slash- no way to appreciate the visuals as you play imo.I find it totally differently. For me, there are a lot of quiet moments to look around, and if you rely more on the Force powers and less on button-mashing, you have less trouble except with bosses. Force lightning is pretty much the best way to deal with your troubles. That's the PS3 version though, I can't speak to the Wii game.

I did bother, and I think there's even a chance that I already bought the troopers. Not sure. But I figured, repaints, re-buys, whatever. You can never have too many troopers. Especially the cool ones.

Don't really know who some of these characters are, but I guess that's why they come with a comic book.

Ulic Qel Droma and Exar Kun are the pincipals in the greatest Star Wars epic ever told (if you're sick of the Skywalker movies and want something different, darker, and off the main-stream).

These two figures go with the Mandalore figure from the Fett Evolutions set. In fact because Ulic beat Mandalore in personal combat and took him as a slave, the Mandalorians have traditionally served the Sith Lords ever since.

Wow. Crunchynug is now the #1 seed top pro collector in the country. :p I didn't know those packs would have wide release. That's good though. I'm on the fence about a few, but there's some i want.

For my comicpack score, i picked up the Weir/storm cmdo set at wally. Again, i'm hating that they didn't include the Evo. Storm cmdo mold, but it's scouts (at least 1 'new') and i gotta get em. Also found a IM2 movie war machine but he had crappy paint apps, esp. on the eyes. I'll pm u figrin. They also had 'The Machinist' dvd for $5 - liked that flick & wanted to show my friend it for a long time. Now i can.

Where to begin.. on a tip from a local, last nite I picked up a $20 AT-ST (actually 2, one for a friend who's not in town) -and not at wally. PM for more info, better to keep this scalper free. I know of at least 3 places that have them (a/o last nite & yesterday late afternoon).

I hope all the big box stores get the new comic packs in soon. Then i'll make my final decision on gettin them when i see em in person.

Oh ya, TF fans, Fallbrook WM had at least 3 HA Barricade sets. Looked awesome, if i were collecting that line i'd get it immediately, but already spent too much on SW. They had TLC AT-AT driver as well.

Anyone go for those HA Barricades?? Sick design.

Tycho
03-24-2010, 02:09 PM
I bought a HA Barricade a while ago. I still haven't gotten around to opening him.

They need more Decepticons for this line. Rampage and Sideways are a scale size that would work (for smaller Decepticons). They could come with Ron Witwicky as a prisoner (and possibly Ravage as his guard) and Alice (Isabel Lucas :love:) as the human-pretender even though she didn't have any scenes with Sideways in the movie. However, you could include both her human and Cybertronian figures in Sideways' package.

Anyway, in terms of keeping the secrets from scalpers "lurking," I found the "you-know-what" at "you-know-where," "you-know-when," and I paid "you-know-how-much," because "you-know-why."

I should use that as a signature line, but I still need to complete some B-A-D trades.

Opened my IM2 movie War machine finally. Not as exciting as i thought it'd be. Head was very hard to move, legs are just short of full articulation (calves don't twist); ammo line is fidgety and doesn't stay attached. I was hopin for just a little more articulation, but it's alright. The guns can fold down so that's a plus. Maybe they'll improve it. I dunno if i'll get the Cheadle head war machine when it comes out -- dunno if i'll go the completist route.

Wes Janson in X-wing fighter gear
Tycho Celchu in X-wing fighter gear

(they've made Wedge and Hobbie) - these are Rogue Squadron's leaders and the best of the best.

Gavin Darklighter and Jaina Solo could be done as well - and I'd pick them up for certain.

I also think the leaders in their civilian clothes should be made:

Wedge, Tycho, Wes, and Derek (Hobbie).

Plus Ysanne Isaard needs to be made! - Not to mention Imperial Dignitary Sate Pestage (for as close to his ROTJ movie look as possible).

IN OTHER NEWS I JUST FOUND:

Transformers Legends Class Soundwave, Jolt, and Stealth BumbleBee. I've never seen these before. I did not buy and have been thinking it over whether I should purchase these ever since.

I did buy the GH Y-wing from TRU but might return it. I'm not sure I need this. I like it a lot though - but it costs a whole baseball game ticket!

I went to 2 more TRUs and struck out with any other new stuff including EU. However, at one of them it was nice to finally see TF animated Arcee.
Stopped at a few targets too on this mad dash and scored a Blackhole/Stormtrooper comic pack. If I didn't find that, the run would've been all for naught.

had a better run today:

Sepulveda Target: had all five of the final comics packs AND a Yuzhong vong/Katarn and Sigel Dare/Krayt packs. I picked up bogey squad & 212th/Routine valor packs. (The last 2 i needed) Rest are still there!!! (a/o 10am)

VN TRU: went there on a tip yesterday that TFU packs and CW Ordo Plutonia wave were there; too late today all TFU packs were gone and the magnaguards (which were all i wanted) plucked too. They did have Snow anakin, obi-wan, firefighter droid, snow rex, and Cmdr Stone too. Multiples of each. The last 2 i mentioned looked really sharp. No EU wave & i don't remember traces either.

Port. R. TRU: went in the hopes of finding TFU packs. No such luck. But I did manage to grab 2 IG 100s!!! Very pleased with that. Also had leftovers of CW snow wave -- everyone except snow rex and the figs i grabbed. No EU wave, as far as I could tell. The suspected figures from the case had HK-50 parts, so I don't think it came in yet. Or it did & someone bought the whole case.

LF TRU: checked it on my way home, nothing good. A lot less EU remnant figs there though

If anyone remembers Tengen's R.B.I. baseball for Nintendo --when you win a game, 3 players show up in the newspaper, and raise their arms --"Woo!!!" That's my celebration for today :D:p

LF TRU had remnants of the EU wave this morning (could tell from the BD parts). None of the new figs. There were 2 alien Bespin wing guard guys though. A few CW snowcoat Anakins too.

I went to 2 more TRUs and struck out with any other new stuff including EU. However, at one of them it was nice to finally see TF animated Arcee.
Stopped at a few targets too on this mad dash and scored a Blackhole/Stormtrooper comic pack. If I didn't find that, the run would've been all for naught.

You should've stashed the Alien Bespin Guards!

Scored the EU wave today at Los Feliz TRU. Awesome figures. I'm on the hunt for additional troopers, along with a K'Kruhk opener.

Also picked up the Force Unleashed sets last night (thanks to Crunchy for the stash). Will probably get at least one more of each...need more of those translucent Stormies.

Crunch and I ran into each other at Burbank TRU and they had at least a case of the EU figures.

Good seeing you Chaddy. When I went to check out, I asked the guy if they had any more in back and he said yes and brought out another case. What a swing from my morning experience.

You can read about it here, it's in 3 Acts. Acts I & II are at the bottom of page 3, Act III is at the top of page 4.

hopefully they'll get more EU in the area, i can't get out much but really want the alien guard and a couple others and would be nice to just be able to walk in to find them. At 1 new figure per case, it'll take a bunch of cases before we all get even one set! Congrats guys on the finds. I'm glad TRU is stepping up and being helpful. I also really want the BAD parts, since he's actually in the movie.

Not figures, but I did get a few Star Wars buttons from a gumball machine in the valley today. They were the japanese capsule type toys. Fun.

sorry Figrin -- didn't know what i was thinkin, i got on the phone & sidetracked. Sorry. Stupid on my part

Snags: what time did u grab that EU wave? I popped in there about 12pm and there was nothing.

I missed them on Tuesday I guess. Yesterday, Darth Maul, Obi-Wan (TPM), and R2D2 were on the pegs with BG-J38 parts.

I should have asked you guys if you want any of those. I'm not planning on getting them myself.

I will buy (at your cost minus one dollar) Jaina, Jacen, and K'Kruhk figures from which YOU CAN REMOVE THE DROID PART and I'll pay for your shipping cost, too. PM me if you just want the droid parts and not the EU figures. However, I'm not interested in the Dark Trooper.

Also, I will need the parts to build one BG-J38, so ask me about your extra parts you might want to trade or sell.

This late AM:

La Cienega TRU -- no EU, no multipacks -got cleaned out in the morning by some collectors or scalpers according to an employee. Cherrypicked cases, but no remnants of BG-J38. I did find and stash a CW Commander TX-20 droid though. PM for location. Sorry if i dont respond quick, I'm working graveyard & need to sleep now. Oh yeah, they had a few Cmdr Stones and Snow anakins & Obi-wans, maybe 1 firefighter droid too.

Culv.Cty TRU -- no EU. Nothing good -AT FIRST....... Searched the SW section up & down 5 min., looked behind all boxes, checked endcaps. At this point i was ****ed. Been to 7 TRUs without finding TFU. Start to leave out of frustration. .....alright.... one more quick check. What's this behind the plush/bobblehead toys? Ultraslim packs -not Evolutions, not Battlepacks, reads The Force unleashed on top. Holy crap -it's the packs!!! Only one of each set left!!!!!!! Grabbed them and bolted for the checkout. Be careful with these --very small, slim box. Almost didn't see them, and this may be what prevented me from finding them early. (Not knowing how they looked!) Awesome looking sets, too bad i didnt have the $5 off $25 coupon they gave out a few wks ago.

rem, PM if you want the TX-20 droid location

I was at the Valencia TRU last Thursday and the only figure from the EU case was the alternate Bespin Guard which I bought, which means that they already put out a case (or two) and I missed out. This is going to be frustrating tracking these down.

Ok last detailed report for a bit (i hope).

LF TRU: Since TRU is having the bogo 50% off sale on SW this week I decided to try to get a price adjust on the TFU packs and magnaguards i bought yesterday. Called beforehand, and a nice lady said that it could be done within 90 days. Wow, thought it was 14. Anyway, i grabbed all my stuff and went up there to the cust. serv. counter. Success!! Everything was adjusted - no problems. I don't have "force persuade" (ala KOTOR) like Snags and Crunchy, but this was nice -lol.
In the aisle: had the CW Orto Plutonia wave, some on the pegs and even a case open on the floor. No magnaguard though. (I did find 1, but it's spoken for -stashed). So snow rex, obi-wan, anakin, firefighter droid, cmdr stone were present. No EU, no TFU packs, no new comic packs. :sad: But go nuts on the bogo sale if you do find that stuff. Good luck.

I found several cases of that Force Unleashed multi-packs. Both versions.

I didn't know you guys were so into those.

I turned them all down after giving them a good look-through. Pretty cool figures though.

I might have army-built the Fallucians if they came single-carded.

Proxy interested me, too.

But I'm not a big FU fan. Yet I guess. I have the game, but I don't seem to want to play it. I'm a baseball fanatic and MLB almost never leaves the disc slot in my system. I beat the Dodgers all 3 games in the last series I played them.

I'd like multi-packs of McFarlane baseball player action figures - fully articulated ones - with Manny Ramierez' expression looking like the dreadlock-guy that the Predator kills in the 2nd movie (with Danny Glover). Heath Bell will play my Predator!

What is the item number on the Unleashed sets? Next time I go to Burbank, I want to know what I am looking for, as my description today did not get me far. I know we struck out there the other day, but I am hoping they show this week.

thanks for the TX-20 stash! Since the BOGO deal is going on, I got another Legacy stormie as well. I also found an AT-ST at Ross in the same shopping complex as that TRU.

Anyone in need of the original waves of Cars die-cast? I have the first few waves loose, and several waves after that are still carded. I need to kick this particular habit, but I'm hoping to sell in a large lot.

Yes, he is off the council. Heck --out of the Order!!!

FB: You're welcome. I contemplated getting him myself, but figured i didn't need him. Hope it partly makes up for not stashing the alien wing guard. :p

btw, Tycho, the guy you were referring to from Predator 2 was King Willie. I love that flick, so much gratuitous violence, swearing and sex --gotta love it!! Nothing can beat Predator 1 really, but Predator 2 was definitely awesome!! Practical effects too.

Unless I missed something, Hasbro SDCC exclusives have not been revealed yet, have they?

I got a new Force Unleashed set tonight. It's the one with the Invisible Trooper and Juno Eclipse Sports-Bra Model.

I don't want to keep it, but if someone here wants to trade figures for it, it's worth 5 figures to me from any combination of 5 figures you can assemble from my want-list below:

5 or less Talz (snow creature guy) from Clone Wars
Captain Rex in Snow Gear
Tactical Droid from Clone Wars
5 or less Jacen Solos
5 or less Jaina Solos
5 or less K'Kruhk
1 Utriss M'Toc Bespin Guard

If I get no takers (or buyers at cost plus s&h), I'm returning TFU set. It's really nice (especially Rhom Kota's Militia Trooper which I wished was single-carded so I could army-build) but this set's not for me (unless I finally start playing my FU video game - I guess after I make the Padres win the World Series and the Chargers win the Super Bowl).

Ty: you may regret returning it, once u play the game and see how cool it is. Don't know what platform u got it on, but each system's release contained different stuff in the game -PS3, wii, 360 etc.

i'll trade u for the shadow trooper (clear) if no one wants it. Don't have anything from your list yet though

I think these sets will be available at TRU all the way through X-mas. They'll run dry for a few months or so, and then resupply.

I can't seem to make myself play that darn game. Even right now I want to play the San Diego Padres vs the San Francisco Giants (we're tied for 1st in our division).

I have a Wii - it's fun for entertaining friends at parties - up to 4 players at a time on many games - but I never manage to play much of anything else but baseball except for some Madden Football. (I did love but beat the LEGO Star Wars and Indiana Jones games). I bought but haven't even unwrapped the Clone Wars Heroes of the Republic game.

I'm not going to break up that set, most likely. I'll trade 5 figures for 5 figures that I want (listed above) and I'll ship TFU pack MIMB.
