Hit a few TRU's this morning & ran into a fellow board member, Dark Knight you out there?

We found one case of EU at TRU #1, strange that an incomplete set was put out. I think one of the twins are Shaak Ti were missing. Found one more case of EU at TRU #2. Was fortunate enough to get one of each Trooper thanks to Dark Knight. So happy about that because those are gonna be my openers!!!

Downtown today so I thought I'd stop at Costco on the way home, around 3pm. Of course had to go to TRU:D but didn't expect to find anything. Saw a couple sets of the EU remnants. I carried the 5 figs around for a bit so I could buy them since they were BOGO1/2 just so I could get the Jabba Build a droid. The 6th extra piece is with the Wing Guard who was of course gone.
Before I checked out I thought I'd ask if there were any more. The guy new what I was looking for and said he thought there was another case in back, just hadn't put them out cause the pegs were full with CW and Legends. He really new his stuff which was refreshing.
Ended up getting a complete set of 7 figs!
I think his name was Ramily? Awesome guy. I usually feel bad for asking for stuff, as the responses can be rude sometimes, but I'm glad I did. I hope they keep shipping our stores these cases everyone can get what we want.
He said they had TFU sets earlier, but were gone.
I guess I am done with legacy!

Sux that 7 new figs are 1 per case. There will be a glut of Legacy leftovers that no one wants. Most of the repacks were in the 2 packs!

Ran into crunchy like he said at porter ranch tru just stocked what seemed to be a partial case of eu missing both females they also had the force unleashed packs just my luck for grabing them online the day before. Thats how it always happens i guess. Ran to Woodland hills tru with crunchy next and scored another case far in the back from other collectors thanks to a honorable tru employee. Split it with crunchy now i think were both good till august.

Hah! Some of those 7 i went to twice too. In all honesty -case pulls from the back aren't fair either b/c not everyone can do them/have that done for them. You must have strong 'force persuade' like Crunchy.

will do man. yeah i agree with you on pulls, thats why i try not to do them unless its an emergency. I actually had no problem waiting till may but with everyone doing pulls for these i was contemplating doing it soon on these. Luckly i didnt have to the first place they were out when we arrived and the other i caught the employee on his way to stock the boys section. But ill keep an eye out and let you know if i see them again.

Los Feliz TRU had a single Utris M'Toc on pegs. I recognized this when some dude walked right up and picked it out 3 minutes after I had scanned the pegs for figures. I saw a few leftovers from the case (Jedi Luke), but missed that one completely for no reason. I did pick up CW Cmdr Stone and Thire/Rys at least though.

I could really use a stash of the 2 Force Unleashed 5-packs tonight or tomorrow morning. I super want these and like an idiot, let them slip through my fingers on the TRU website.

Why is it that TRU Burbank and Los Feliz, the 2 closest to me, have consistently sucked for as long as I've been going there? It's not just the crap selection, the employees actively run up to you asking if you want help, and when you tell them what you want they blow you off like you just asked them to scrape the bottom of your shoe with their tongues. That and the crap selection. ;)


For all you Iron Man line fans, Burbank TRU had 4 new figures, 27-31, Ditko Iron Man (same classic body, new helmet, looks weird), a regular comic Iron Man I didn't quite recognize (both of these had no name beyond "Iron Man" and "Comic Series"), Guardsman, and Titanium Man, which is different from the first movie Titanium Man. I bought Titanium Man, had to choose the best visor paint I could find, they were all a little off.

JT: LF TRU is probably the best stocked TRU in the area, besides the Torrance store, so I have faith in them. However, i'm really crossing my fingers that they'll have EU this sat. Total crapshoot, as with most hunts. Otherwise, i'll make an early prediction -these will be as htf if not harder than TAC wave 5. And that really *(%&#%^% sux. Bigtime.

Today at TRU, I got:

Dark Trooper (very cool - I guess I'll keep one)
Shaak-Ti (also very cool - I'll have to play my FU game and see what it's about)
Utriss M'Toc (nice to have my Bespin Guards complete)

FireFighter Droid (CW) - cool. I wasn't going to get this one. Now I want 3 more.
Captain Rex in snow gear. Yeah!

TFU pack 1
TFU pack 2

As I said, I may offer TFU packs for trade or sale at cost, but now I guess I have to play my game and see what happens when it's full count and there's 2 outs and... - oh wait. Nevermind. Wrong game. What's TFU? I guess it's Star Wars stuff? Alright. I'll "force" myself to take a look.

I'm now trying to beat it on Wii and I'm on the last board. The previous board was one exclusive to Wii in which you to Bespin and fight a bunch of Mandos among other guys like Talz and K'Krukh species!!! Really cool board. Boss was a b....

I keep getting tempted to buy the PS2 version (same as the Wii, minus the waggle controls obviously) but keep reading that the Force powers are all really weak and pointless and take away from the fun of the concept. Is that the case?

Back from LF TRU where they had quite a few FU sets, both sets. There was a shelf tag and everything! This was 3pm.
Also got a couple figs for 4.99 BOGO 1/2 off. The way the computer takes the sale though, it takes BOGO sale first, 7.49 1st fig, 3.74 second fig, then takes 2.50 off each.
Hopefully this will clear out the pegs. BOGO til tomorrow, but the 4.99 is thorugh July.
Went to Burbank while I was out. Thought about getting 2 Matchstick pilot (CW), but when an employee asked if I needed anything, I obliged and asked if any more Legacy, other than the 1 Yarna. He brought out a case of ESB rev. got 8 figs for $30. Left Stormtrooper, Snowtrooper, and Cody. Maybe they have some EU in the back for tomorrow?
Also got price adjusted for the 8 figs I bought Wed. Got 20 bucks back!
At least if the EU hit more plentifully in the coming weeks, they will still be 4.99!

Personally, I think La Cienega TRU is much better stocked than Los Feliz.

JT, if you still want me to try to stash TFU packs at LF TRU, let me know.

If I were to return the TFU packs I got from TRU.com to the store, they would refund shipping as well, correct?

JediTricks
04-30-2010, 10:07 PM
No thanks, I picked 'em both up there. The minute I saw Toydarian's post, I jumped into the car and busted down there. Thanks for offering though.

$5 figs was a big surprise, seems to have made a dent. I almost bought an extra Luke Jedi, R2, and Chewie to take advantage of the BOGO and get those BG-J38 parts, but then decided to pass since I have all of them already and it's more money down the drain.

La Cienega does seem to be off the scalper trade routes somehow, I guess Big Lou now lives in Culver City TRU and doesn't have time to leave. But they have really bad stocking practices, so it's very hit-or-miss, but I guess everything is.

I'm glad you were able to score a set! Sorry I didn't stash any for others, but there were quite a few, and Friday afternoon, was fairly busy. I have a feeling we will see a good supply of those sets, unlike the EU figures.
The figure deal was great and I got a few extras for custom fodder at that price. I saw no Maul repacks though, which I wanted to get to make a second BG-J38, but I'm sure I'll see him again. I think this sale will do well to clear out old stock, and maybe push a bunch of hidden treasures from the warehouses into stores. I never saw ROTS figures (Utai, Colton, etc) and would love if TRU found some cases of that wave!

05-01-2010, 03:56 AM
Here's one for the record books: I dragged my date to TRU (yes she waited in the car) and I talked to the manager.

They don't have anything to put out tomorrow morning. Unless they get them Fed-Ex'd in - which can happen - there's nothing new.

I still need multiples (don't even have one each yet) of K'Kruhk, and the Solo Twins.

No EU at Woodland Hills (none according to computer either), none at Porter Ranch (again none showing in computer), none at Van Nuys. Van Nuys did hav 3 cases in the back though, but all ESB revisions. Picked up a scanning crew, Black Bespin Guard, SS Luke, couple Gungans and a legacy chewy for extra/customs. Didn't want to pass up the last chance for 3.xx figures.
Van Nuys has Force Unleashed packs sitting on shelf too.

For the first time in a long while, I was able to search a TRU before noon, this time in Monrovia. No sign of EU. According to the sale ticket, the $4.99 price drop is supposed to last until 7/3/10. Did anyone else notice this at other TRUs? If so, this is likely a ploy to clear out space for the Vintage line. Even at that price, though, I doubt they'll get rid of the armies of Saesee Tiins littering the LA area.

JediTricks
05-02-2010, 01:23 AM
Yeah, the $5 tag date was at all the stores I've been to in the past 2 days.

Monrovia, Los Feliz, Burbank TRU, none of them had jack squat of note today. Los Feliz already ran out of TFU packs, Monrovia had 1 - that has to suck so bad being stuck finding 1 on bogo.

JT: looks like you found what u needed. Very good. At 9:30 this AM they only had one TFU pack out. Must've put em out later & they sold out after 3p or so. A stock guy already had a case out of CW, I grabbed the IG-100 (spoken for) and got a Snow Rex. (Don't need him extremely bad, PM if u do.)

We pretty much got screwed today (sat.). None of the SF valley TRUs had EU either reportedly. I think the sale will go till 7/17 iirc. That's cool. IF U CAN FIND THE DANG FIGURES!!!!!!!!!!

Snags: How are you able to get EU (w/crunchy) when everyone else here on the boards scoured all of LA and ended up with a goose egg?? Oh that's right -- top pro collectors.. :p

The Alien Bespin dude is actually the only figure I'm looking for from the EU set. I ordered the rest as a set from BBTS and I don't mind waiting and saving on the gas, but the "set" didn't include the Bespin guy, so him I still need.

That was pretty crazy! The male victim is someone I know. He's a kickboxing instructor my friend takes class from. She said he's joking his kickboxing reflexes saved his life. Broad daylight too. When I'm working in Hollywood, I go to WEHO target everyday. Gotta watch your back!

Back to toys, I notice burbank TRU had a fair share of ESB revision cases on the shelf, and some CW. Has Thi-Sen been released? I've never seen him, Sidious, or TX-20, just Firefighter droid, Snow Jedi, Stone, and Rex. Hopefully they will show up while figures are still 4.99.

Stabbing was crazy. I heard of it on Facebook, then it was on tonight's news.

I was figuring Thi-Sen and Sidious were maybe in a revision or future wave. Hopefully Target and TRU will get more clone wars before the package change.

I usually end up going there with my mom or grandmother, so that would have been a real shocker to deal with. My sister is sure she would have rushed the assailant with a shopping cart, but I fully doubt it. Some woman on the news who was in the store claims the assailant stabbed a guy 5 times while he was crouched down, and that the knives had tags like they had been grabbed from the store itself. Last year I was shopping with my mom there and suggested such a thing would be so easy, they have their knives on the regular shelves in simple clamshell packaging OR LESS. Didn't know that would be prophetic though.

I know he's more fitness guy than martial arts tough guy. I'm guessing the situation took him by surprise. He didn't get hurt too bad.

Opened a couple extras today from this past weekends TRU sale. I pulled out of storage and opened the POTF Falcon carry case with Scanning crew guy . Cool to see him side by side with the new one.

Los Feliz TRU had CW Firefighter Droid x2 and Snowy Captain Rex x2. I bought 1 of each. The Fire Droid has rotation forearms, about time! Rex's head can bend forward to an unnaturally low point, and can rotate pretty well, why can't they do this with regular Snowtroopers?

Burbank TRU had diddly.

Yeah, not finding the new Magnaguard or TX-20 has gotten frustrating. My AAT needs a pompous windbot to stick out the top and get blasted. ;)

I've decided to use my Snow Rex as my squad's Fire Trooper under Rex's command, which will explain the coloring. :p Yes, the gun is wrong for a fire-trooper, but it's close enough, and if I put him in the Freeco Bike they'd have that arctic theme overwhelming my squad.

walmart had some cool AC/DC Ironman 2 shirts for sale. $5-7.50. A lot of them said "shoot to thrill" and one of them was gray & had WM on the front with some antique cannons. There was a Mk V shirt, and the poster shot of IM & wm standing back to back. I would've taken a WM shirt with nothing else on it -but no such luck.

La Cienega TRU, some topless Mauls and other non-new stragglers from the EU case. A single Cmdr Stone. TFU packs not in equal number.

And then I spent 3.5 hours in the ER at Kaiser down the street waiting for them to tell us my grandmother had no physical conditions they could find, which is why we were taking her to URGENT CARE instead but they told us ER had to deal with it. Stupid Kaiser. Stupid Urgent Care. Stupid Dementia advancing rapidly.

There were still a couple of Alien Wing Guards on the pegs when I left. Nice to get these at $4.99 instead of $7.49.

I wanted both. I think the clearer one got cut by Lucasfilm, probably because the game has lots of the smoked ones and none of the white clear ones.

There's also a 3rd image posted recently of a solid dark gray figure with a removable helmet and new head under, my theory is that was a pre-production photo error though.

Hasbro making Exar Kun and Ulic Qel Droma, along with Jaina and Jacen Solo are amongst the most awesome things that have happened in this hobby since I started collecting in it.

Too bad there are problems with 3 of the 4:

Jaina's not really dressed correctly: when was she an OLD Republic Jedi?

Exar was a very young Sith Lord (maybe his 20's - but his figure looks 40+)

Ulic - same thing - and he was younger than Exar - like maybe 28 and 22 years old?

Why are the figures middle-age looking? (Well maybe the Ulic figure looks like he's a late 30-something).

Anyway, Jacen Solo turned out the most accurate.

Smokey Stormies don't look as smokey with the bright flash, the torso is right in these 2 shots but the limbs got overblown, they look almost as dark as the torso in real life (I was too close and too hot on the flash, hence the over-lit problem):

Those ones you have are the ones i was refering to as the clear ones JT. I know there not perfectly clear mostly a frosted white color in most spots and the chest is like a bad yellow clear musky color and somewhat clear legs and arms.

That is the clear version, you can see it's way different from the smokey version. The one we have is definitely closer to the smoked version. We got the dark version, I'm pretty sure of this. Most likely, they shot it using different lighting conditions. Or we got a 3rd version that's in between.

I think your right that we recieved one that is in the middle of the two honestly reviewing all the pics a third time its not crystal clear and its not as black as the other pick on jedi insider its more of in between frosted white greyish version. at least we all have the same version and we dont have to go through that variancy, ha. probably got down to hasbro being cheap again.

Have you taken yours out of the packaging yet, JT? Mine looked smokier in the box than they were out of the box, and I think it's because the colors in the background were refracting inside the plastic and making it appear darker than it actually was, even with the naked eye.

At Rite Aid today I saw the organa/skywalker women evolution set...
Well, not really, but the only 3 figs they have are young Beru, Breha Organa, and Medical frigate Leia. They actually look cool all together, definitely candidates for an evolution pack.
But at 11.49, they probably won't be going anywhere.

I need Clone Wars figures now. I am done with the EU wave and have extra Shaak-Ti's (2) that I'll probably be returning to the store.

Because of friends' efforts to find me figures, I may have 4 extra Jainas and 3 extra Jacens, too.

Anyway, the Clone Wars figures I need help with are:

(1) TX-20 Droid
(5) Talz (the big white furry alien - forgot the character's name)
(4) Firefighter Battle Droids

The first two do not seem to be in the cases my TRU is receiving and the other stores are not getting figures at the moment.

I'm sure they will be plentiful later, but right now they're the only figures I'm missing.

Has anyone here in socal seen the Talz fig or Sidious or TX-20 from CW? I haven't seen them up here either, Tycho.

I've seen the firefighter droid a couple times hanging out, but never the others.

Looks like they were only in wave 12 CW, and dropped from wave 13, which is all I've seen at TRU. I've not seen CW at Target since the Aayla/Hondo wave months back. Haven't done much Wal-Mart, but never saw anything there either CW wise.

I'm seeing TFU figure packs sit for a few days before selling out. But the TRU sale (until July 3rd I think) helps them move.

Thank you BikerScout and Figrin for trying to help me find Thi-Sen (and teaching me his name).

As for Wal-Mart, I am hunting. But my stores have shrunk their SW figures to like 8 pegs (2 columns of 4). Furthermore, they are stuffed (oh - but one store had a SW figure endcap, though it seems to be gone now) and old figures were all that hung out there.

IronMan 2 seems to be filling all of Hasbro's shipping. What is there an IronMan movie or something? ;)

Let's see:

Tactical Droid Ironman
FireFighter Ironman
Snowbeast Ironman

I guess those figures could cover my needs?

Robert Downey, Jr. as a Talz.... there's a crazy thought.

There's tremendous collector foot traffic through that store so I wouldn't blame scalpers. Besides, I've seen the 2 worst scalpers that frequent the store, Sanchez and Hootie, pass them up.

Target has dropped their figures to 4.99 btw. Probably just a temporary price reduction.

Jaina on the endcap & Jason in the main.

I also picked up a FU Commerorative 3 pack with Emperor and 2 Shadow Troopers for 7.99. There were 3 more sets as well. I tried to stash 2 sets, but the toy area is such a disaster, as well as the rest of the store.
PM for store and location.

The Toy Story line is looking really good- and my kids kind of like it, so I have to seriously resist the urge to pick up some of the good ones for myself.

Re: "Cars" die-cast, which I no longer collect but I do sort of follow. The Disney Store at Glendale Galleria has a really big die-cast Frank the Harvester for sale. It would be cool to pose with Mater and Lightning.

The Super WM in Valencia has lots of CW figures including Commander Stone and Snow Rex. There were NO Talz, TX, Sidious, or Grievous Bodyguards though. I wonder why these last couple of CW waves have been so scarce. I thought by now there would be lots of them on the pegs.

My Target stocked The A-Team action figures.

"If the Star Wars pegs are empty...

...and no employee's there to help....

...and you can find them....

maybe you can waste your money on:

The A-Team.

Tah-Tah-Tah-Tah-Tah"

See, I gave 5 tah-tah's. :D

[Note: I'd actually consider buying the original cast of The A-Team if they made higher quality figures of George Peppard, Dirk Benedict, Dwight Schultz, and Mr. T.]

[Addendum: and what's with Colonel Lynch now being CIA instead of the Army's worst case of failure?]

In 1972 2003 a crack commando unit on crack was sentenced by a military court for a crime movie they didn't commit (to).

These men promptly escaped (making any profit whatsoever) in the Los Angeles underground (Read: pirated DVDs offered weekly at Frank and Sons').

Today, not really wanted by the government (or anyone else for that matter), they survive as soldiers sufferers of misfortune.

They have a problem.

No one else can help.

If they can find themselves.

Maybe they can still have:

a sequel!

It's nearly safe to say that if you didn't get these SW items by now -you're pretty much screwed: the final 5 comic packs (no one's stocking!!), the TRU EU wave (u can try online, but how much will they be? gouged?), and the CW wave with Sidious, TX-20, and Thi-sen (where the f is this?? no one's stocking again..:mad:)

Don't buy from scalpers or eBay (same thing).

Hasbro has to sell through a lot larger amount of this stuff than what has shipped already.

The stores were just being cautious because of the economy.

More is on the way, I can assure you. It's simply logical. Yes, you might have to wait a month or longer. (Or maybe not).

I can see legacy being clearanced and the DPCI changing for the Vintage cards, but Legends and Clone Wars might stay the same. I can't believe Target never received any of the snow themed wave. They are in the system somewhere, just backed up in distribution.
I am addicted to the Artbox (Kotobikya) magnets at Target. Only 5 or so more to a full set, and so far not too many repeats that I can't find somewhere to stick. Now lets hope Valley Target restocks, I bought most of em.

I just kinda looked at him baffled of his lack of attention mainly because in a big circle on the front of the package it says limited to 15,000. Explains his minimum wage i guess. They had plenty in stock to just so your not worried about getting one. two shelfs full and plenty behind the counter. Its a pretty cool set and with our season pass it took off 25% taking it down from $40 to $30 so all in all a decent deal.

What sort of pass do you have that you got 25% off? With my Premium, I only get 20%. There were not that many when I went this past Saturday either at Star Trader or the toy store on Main Street so I guess more were brought out overnight.

There may be 15,000 but I would bet that over half, maybe even 65 to 70 percent of those are for WDW as they need enough for the SW Weekends crowds and maybe even for CV.

Is everyone's stores' Star Wars pegs completely empty?

My Toys R Us has a few Obi-Wans, Lisub Srrlns, an R2D2 - something like that and then like 16 empty pegs or more. With the endcap, maybe more like 28 empty pegs.

Target and Walmart have more like 8 empty pegs for Star Wars, but they are emtpy.

Hasbro collected all the SaeSee Tiins and Plo Koons presumably, unless a local collector bought them all out, waiting for shipments of new figures before he returns all of them (I've known some to do this - you fools hiding figures will not trip their auto-inventory replenishment orders and will make it even longer before new figures come in.

HTS has the new Legends figs up on their site as well as the new CW wave. Aurra and Pre Vizsla are sold out, though.

I saw them earlier and I believe they were Pre-Sale and not going to ship until August anyway.

Vintage and the latest CW wave are IN STOCK at TRU.com.

Vintage are listed at $9.99, but they are offering free shipping if you spend $50. Ended up grabbing a few CW figs (Aurra, Pre, Mando Soldier) and a few openers from the Vintage wave (already have a case on the way from RazorsEdge).

Went to grad-nite at Disneyland on Thursday. The Tomorrowland gift shop had 24 Star Tours gift sets left. They also had Wave 4 of the Disney/SW mash up figures, the R2-MK droid with Jedi Mickey, and a 2-pack with Mickey and Minnie as Luke/Leia - this was the only one I passed on, since it was a repack of wave 1 figures.

I don't know if they will ship before 8/6 anyway, BlueSnags.

Let us know if the charges from TRU show up on your card. They typically won't bill until they are ready to ship.

My guess is that they won't be moving on this in July at all - unless perhaps close to the very end of the month.

They get the sales by putting this stuff up now.

It is comforting to take care of it - as I want 3 Cloud Cars for example. But if these are just being treated as pre-orders (even if it says "in-stock") I'm not optimistic.

BlueSnags
06-27-2010, 10:21 PM

I ordered the Snowspeeder, Cloud Car, and CW Grievous today. Cloud Car was half price and shipping was free thanks to Grievous. Much of the other stuff was sold out even though I had it in my cart yesterday while I thought about it. Because my items are CW SKUs and not TVC, I'm hoping they'll ship no matter what.

I don't understand.

If you buy a figure you get half off any other SW item with the purchase of a figure?

They're offering free shipping right now?

But TRU's vehicles are over-priced next to what Wal-Mart and Target will offer them for, right?

I don't think I'll bother checking on it right now then. This stuff will be available for sure by August and then-on through Christmas no doubt.

I'm re-doing my bedroom furnishings, hiring movers to bring large display cases I own out of my storage, and I bought the James Bond movie collection. I've spent a lot of money recently - plus San Diego Padres games are on-going.

I'm re-doing my bedroom furnishings, hiring movers to bring large display cases I own out of my storage, and I bought the James Bond movie collection. I've spent a lot of money recently - plus San Diego Padres games are on-going.
The purchase was buy 1 SW toy, get another half-off. That counted for the Snowspeeder and Cloud Car. Then separately they had free shipping on any purchase over $49, so when I added in Grievous my pre-tax total came to $49.27.

As for why I plunked down $28 TRU price for the Snowspeeder instead of $20-$25 for the WM/Target pricing we've seen lately, first off it looks like pricing is going up in August on "starfighter" class vehicles - Hasbro has been talking about it creeping up to $25 for over a year now, and Target usually has 'em now for $22 or $23. Second, the Snowspeeder is short-packed, 1 per case and only in the original wave, not its 2 revisions, and I absolutely don't want to miss that one. Third, with the discount it made it work out better than if they were $22 a piece, the bogo 50% vehicles worked out to $42. It absolutely wasn't worth $2 difference if Target & WM have them for $20 because the odds are good that they won't have the Snowspeeder anyway, and it'd take less than 30 miles driving for me to waste it in gas. Finally, they won't be out for another month.


They had Grievous 2 and the Mandalorian security officer from that CW wave, I took the Mando out of my cart because I am limited in funds and he's not a must-have for me right now. The day prior, I had Pre whatsisface and Aurra Sing in my cart as well, but waited too long. I also had TVC Luke & Leia in my cart, but at $10 a pop I wasn't likely to pull the trigger on them.

That said, Thi Sen, CW Sidious, TX-20, and the cloaked Magnaguard have been impossible to get the last few months, so missing stuff when you have the chance is never a good idea, never know if it'll ship again. Have you seen the CW deluxe fig & vehicle AT-RT? I haven't, it's been on pegs for a while. I hope I don't miss the new Mando speeder and Cad Bane speeder in the line, but it's tough to know what to expect.

Thanks to JT I was able to order 2 Starscreams and 2 Cloud Cars.

I also bought 2 Mandalorian Warrior figures. I'll be wanting to get 6 total and still could get more, but at this point, I'm not trading gas money for shipping money. I'd be spending more on shipping if I ordered any more.

Apparently you can only get the discount on 2 FIGURES per order at any given time.

Learn from my mistake: I bought my 2 Starscreams and 2 Cloud Cars on the same order.

I should have separated them and then gotten free shipping and the discount on 2 separate orders, one with 2 Cloud Cars, and one with 2 Starscreams.

So for those of you ordering 2 of each ship or Transformer to share - split your Cloud Cars and Snowspeeder orders up if you can (and still get the shipping discount) and then order your figures this way as well - with part of your figure order with each.

I could go back and cancel my orders and reorder them etc but I'd only be saving 3 bucks or so and it's not worth it to me as I am really about to go to sleep.

But then I'm not collecting the "new vintage" stuff, so my figure orders are going to be very limited this year.

I DO want a third Cloud Car, so I would double-up with someone else here. I've been trying to get JT on the phone to do that with but he went to sleep early and turned his phone off. So whoever gets a hold of me first - especially if you're coming down to San Diego for Comic Con - you can just pick your ship up or have me bring it to you (Figrin, CrunchyNug, TurboWars - there's a few of you from LA that I've met in person and others amongst you whom I have very good trade history with - so please consider it).

I'm going to slip my own Clone Wars figure order in with our stuff, too - but I'm not buying any Vintage Collection with it so that can be "all you." (2 Cloud Car Pilots anyone?)

Meanwhile I had a dream (and yes, this story definitely belongs in THIS thread) that I walked into the toy isle at TRU and there were pegs upon pegs of vintage carded figures. In my dream, these might have been real 80's vintage figures, but it had been hard to tell. However, now this dream is about to become true!

"Premonitions...It is the future you see. Old friends long gone."

Yes indeed. I think I feel the Force.

Remember, when I was in the hospital and on heavy drugs, I could levitate myself. So it's possible I'm a real live Dark Jedi! :yes:

Think about it.

Deluxe Ironhide (I was so glad I snatched this up)
Leader Starscream (I did not buy as I ordered 2 from the website)
Voyager SeaSpray (I jumped on. I don't know if I'll keep him but I like him!)

A military line's Black Hawk Helicopter for 3 3/4" figures.
All the A-Team figures to go in it.
The A-Team Van to fly over.
Some SA military figures that looked really good to fight The A-Team

2 new sets of bed sheets
a new bed skirt
new pillow shams
a new duvee

I'm turning my bedroom into an ultra-modern style decorated in black as I will be bringing into it Coruscant diorama displays and Christophis from Clone Wars.

Please PM the location of the Vintage and new CW figures you found and also let me know if there is parking for the U-haul I will need to rent in order to make a productive trip to this store. (Also, do you know if they accept food stamps?)

I visited TRU Azusa today and found the Masters of the Universe/DC Universe Classics 2-packs along with several other DCUC 2-packs, some that were over a year old. Two scalpers, who had loaded a shopping cart with various Transformers and Cars, said the stocking clerk had just put them out. There were several, so I, given my natural contempt for scalpers, wondered why they hadn't taken them. To this, they responded that they already had 8 sets of the 2-packs that they were waiting for prices to rise to sell. One of them was on the phone with a crony who was supposed to be at Montebello TRU but for some reason was not. The whole scene was very much like something out of a documentary.

TRU Los Feliz had a bunch of new packaged old CW figures as well as some new Saga Legends - Jango is a mess. They also had 1 new CW Grievous which I bought, this figure is a gummy bear, I have a thread about that in the CW forum. They also had all 4 new vehicles plus duplicates of the Cloud Car and blue tank, I bought the Snowspeeder and Cloud Car, both quite boss and both just a little smaller than the vintage originals (the Cloud Car seems much smaller, but it's really just narrower). The Snowspeeder is very nice, but has 12 stickers for the interior, the nerve!!! :p

For TF, they had the new Hunt for the Decepticons figures, I bought 1 Dlx Ironhide. They also had just 3 Power Core Combiners 2packs (2 Huffer, 1 Searchlight). Since it was Bogo50%, I decided to risk it and buy another PCC pack, Searchlight. Both these figures suck, plain and simple.

In a few days, I'll have another Grievous, Snowspeeder, and Cloud Car. If anybody wants any/all of these, LMK and we'll work something out. TRU's return policy regarding this BOGO might make things difficult if I break up the set, so I'm not sure what to do yet, but I'd rather one of you guys get that Snowspeeder than a scalper, they're 1 per case and not in either upcoming revision.


just making sure. Alright. Cool!! Plmk when it comes in. Maybe we can meet at your favorite Los Feliz TRU. They have shipped. It'll probably be another week, they do something sleazy at UPS basic, they ship it to the city and then hand it over to the local Post Office to process and do final delivery, which tacks on 3 days or so.

I'm interested in the new Vintage stuff- if anyone finds some, please let me know.

Could use a TF stash on Generations Drift, and a SW stash of... everything? ;) I actually don't know if I'm willing to pay TRU's $10 for Vintage Collection, so the only stuff I'm still looking for is CW Magnaguard, and TX-20 I suppose.

I ordered 12" Hammerhead from Sideshow and also got Terminator Sarah Connor (T-1000 pretending to be is the actual one I ordered as it looks a lot better than the regular Sarah) and (2) T-1000's so I can display them in alternate ways.

I'm going to look for good prices on John and Arnold before I hop on the wait lists. - Oh for the Endoskeletons and Marcus Wright as well.


That's great Tycho!! I mostly collect 1/6 scale now. I'm a little bummed right now because I missed both attendee and non-attendee chances to get the SDCC 12" exclusive Predator from Hot Toys. That thing sold out like in 10 seconds (no kidding) both days. Oh well...

Anyway, can't wait to get Hammerhead.:thumbsup:

Well, as JT pointed out, it really isn't that great of a figure. I can vouch for that as well.

TRU Los Feliz had another new Grievous.

On the TF front, they had 2x Drift (I bought one), a few voyager Seasprays, and a couple leader-class Starscreams.


Speaking of which, Bikerscout, the tracking data looks like it'll be delivered Thursday, it's in LA now but TRU's cheap UPS doesn't deliver to me, they deliver to the post office who then delivers it to me. I'm busy Friday afternoon and evening, as well as Saturday, so we'll have to meet up some time around that.

It looks waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than the 2008 version. I know it doesn't have 4 arms or a cape, but I don't find it to be that crappy. What do u mean?

JT: i'm working all wknd. (evenings) I will make myself available though (save for late morning Sun. Wanna watch the World Cup final). Hit me up.

I went to that TRU late yesterday and they had a few WFC dlx Bumblebees, Seasprays, Dlx Thrust (x2, but 1 or both may've been bought -i met another collector who wanted him), Night Ops Rachet, Dlx Ironhide, and 1 LC SS. He was up high & i didn't get to see him. :( I have a feeling we'll see a glut of those Battle hook Primes --looks like no one is buyin him. No Drifts left that I saw.
SW -- a few of those new GG that you all hate, other CW in new packaging, including Snow Rex x2 or x3 and new pkg Saga Legends. Also had Snowspeeder and Cloud Car in new pkg. Too bad no vintage, if they did put it out, it was all scooped up.

*p.s. --anyone's who's ordered & received pre vizsla (mando) from TRU --could u pm me asap please??? thnx.

possibly the rubberiest figure I've seen in the entire line. The sculpting is decent, but the figure cannot stand on its own or hold poses thanks to very pliable limbs. Other problems include the shoulder pads flying off at the blink of an eye, and no weathering. It's good in theory, but the end result is a massive annoyance in my book.

Hit me up.Well, if it shows up today (which I'm hoping it will, it was tendered to the post office yesterday afternoon which is plenty of time to process and deliver), I could meet up with you later this evening, or early tomorrow, maybe Saturday morning. LMK what works for you from that.

Yeah, Hooker Prime is destined to shelfwarm. That blackened face dooms it even further IMO.

Too bad no vintage, if they did put it out, it was all scooped up.I don't hate it, I just can't stand having a cool figure that's utterly unusable in my collection. It's close to be good, but what doesn't work absolutely crushes it. The Snowspeeder, Grievous, and Cloud Car at Los Feliz that day were actually the shipment I got from TRU.com that I returned to that store for money (I had bought the same pieces the day before when I found them there, not realizing how the UPS to post office thing worked).

It was indeed Starscream, I have mine right here on my desk, and Bikerscout's is still in box. Oddly, the tape they used on the packaging for both is very weak and coming off in spots. And TRU used zero packing materials, thanks so much there, jerks.

Screamer is very cool, I'll post a review in the TF thread later today.

Bikerscout, please PM me when you have an idea of when you want to get together.
