Big thanks to BKUSNA for the upcs they really helped. I was surprised to see they were 13 snowtrooper upcs. Props to that guy if we all could afford that many snowtroopers im pretty sure we all would. Thanks again man.
Anytime bud, these snowtroopers don't have a chance against me.....:hurt:

I want the new Battle Blades Voyager Optimus Prime.

I didn't find any toys at Target, but Smallville Season 9 and Sons of Anarchy Season 2 were out on DVD!

Then I got an e-mail from Entertainment Earth that they shipped my Human Alliance Mudflap! Awesome! I can't wait to complete my HA collection thus far. Now we really need more Decepticons in that line or "a Human Nemesis line."

Yesterday...

La Cienega TRU - nuthin' new.

Culver City TRU - nuthin' new, I think some remnants of TVC wave 2.

Crenshaw WM - some SL wave 2, 1 TVC Obi-Wan ROTS, 1 Mandalorian speeder with figure stolen out :(, they said they could only give me a 10% discount, I said no to that noise.

La Cienega Target - nuthin' new.

At least this WM had Saga Legends at $7 instead of $8, so I bought 2 Snowtroopers.


I could really use a stashing on that Mandalorian Speeder, and Transformers Animated Rodimus.

Probably not, no. They have to be basic figures from the main Clone Wars, Legacy Collection, or Vintage Collection lines.

09-11-2010, 09:19 PM
The two Bobas I ordered showed up today. Both were crushed, one worse than the other. The first one had a completely crushed bubble (which I ended up opening). The second one had a mint bubble but a wavy card. What is Hasbro thinking, shipping these this way? Just terrible. I'm going to give customer service a call on Monday to complain.

Once I opened the figure, I noticed that it doesn't even stand on its own. It keeps falling backward. The only way to get him to stand is to bend his torso forward, so he looks like he's stumbling around drunk. Didn't anyone from quality control catch this? Thumbs DOWN.

In other news, I stopped by Pacoima Target today and they had the four SW monster bobble-heads - ended up grabbing one of each. They're pretty cool! Only $6.99 each.

Not that it makes anything better, but mine also falls over, so it's probably a mold issue and not a QC issue.

No euphemism.

One of the reasons I typically send in for multiples of the mail-ins is shipping damage. Last week, I finally received the balance of my Qui Gon order from Hasbro, plus an extra one (which still does not make up for Hasbro not sending me the two mail away Docs and Crystal Skull aliens I paid for). Both boxes, though, were crushed. The mail ins should all be titled "Battle Damage" figures.

that sucks JT. I knew from your description the packaging wouldn't be pretty. Horrible. Why in the world would they even put sharp/blunt objects near packages at all?? If 80%+ of boxes are getting smashed or punctured -this is a serious problem. You don't find envelopes with holes in them!! (much) Wtf!?!?!

Anyway, I got my Rocket fett in the mail just now and the package is a little worn, side is bowed out from being squished but Fett's bubble is in tact. Card isn't perfect though -big crease on the side. Not too noticeable though, and this guy will probably be the opener after I send out for another. The card art overall seems kind of dull, like it was sitting in the sun for a week. Anyone know what I mean??

My guess is that the heavy demand on these had Hasbro stretched so thin that they had to send out damaged packaging versions at the end just to fulfill as many as they could.

On the other hand, it could be that the USPS did this, I've actually gotten much, much worse. I used to have a Geocities page about this, but Geocities got taken down.... Ok, I just posted it on my site:
http://www.jtreviews.com/usps/
So it's not THAT hard to believe they could have done that anymore. ;)

I can't imagine what Hasbro was thinking by not using tougher boxes and not using card protectors since they cost SO little to produce.

As for the colors, I have seen pics of this set, it didn't seem that way in the pics. Can you take a comparison shot next to either a carded TVC Fett or VOTC?

Even taped closed is fine for a comparison, just take the shot from an angle so the flash doesn't bounce into the lens.

Target W. Hollywood had a Pre Vizsla on pegs yesterday, a kid got it before I could stash it, but he seemed tentative about it, so he could have put it down.


I got my Retro Fett yesterday, the mailer was modestly mangled, but worse, it was OPEN 90% of the way, only a thin corner was still glued and 1 side flap remained engaged. Luckily, the figure inside was not only intact, but unharmed in card OR bubble! I've put it in a protector case, I had to remove another figure from its case to do so since I've finally run out.


Anyway, I was thinking, I want another for openers, but with you guys getting mangled ones, I figured we might be able to work something out. Anybody want to sell me their mangled-card Retro Fett? I'll give you $7, 5 UPCs, and 2 mailer forms in exchange.

Anybody notice the foot pegholes are modern size instead of classic?

Los Feliz TRU had TVC General Grievous, I bought him. Someone returned a CW Bly figure with a TVC UPC inside the bubble to get that $2.50 difference, very sleazy, I stashed just in case. Transformers they had a few Breachers, I stashed one. Masterpiece Grimlock, I stashed too. Any stashings, please PM me and state which, they're in different places.

Burbank TRU - nada. Culver City TRU - Pre Vizsla, forgot to stash. La Cienega TRU - nada. Culver City Target - nada. Culver City Ross - nada. La Cienega Target - nada. La Brea Target - nada, but they lowered their insanely high prices on Saga Legends with a "price cut", while raising the price on Clone Wars figures. Classy.

Clever, JT! :)It's really just a simplification. One way or another, that money and stuff would be used to order one. If I order it, no matter the condition it arrives I'll be opening it, and someone else who has a damaged one is still stuck with a damaged package. This way, I am giving them the chance to get a better one, and I get the one I want.

I had a bunch of family stuff come up on the phone right before and after I posted, and have blanked it. Whoops!

It is the expense of those dinosaurs that has me doing more online-shopping for these. That's the tragedy - the brick and mortar stores will have more trouble measuring demand because folks like me have given up on them, which will cause more folks to give up on them.

Galactic Heroes new Cinema Scene Packs:

Kamino
Purchase of the Droids

I couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger on these.

Kamino has a new Junior Boba Fett figure and Taun We, but other than that, it's not that impressive.

Purchase of the Droids has an awesome sandcrawler box - only I wish it were "awesomer" by making it larger. However, there is a new Gonk Droid and I don't believe we've seen R5-D4 in there before. Plus there's a Galactic Heroes Uncle Owen. Still, certain I'll see this again, I didn't buy it.

A kid came by and picked them both up though - he put PotD back down immediately and loved the one with the Clones. Predictable...

I also found Masterpiece Grimlock but didn't remember if anyone needed this. He's too small in the first place. Plus, TF fans here know while I'm also a fan, I sort of object to the concept of Dinobots, though I loved them as a kid.

They also had new SW Transformers including the Republic Assault Tank / Clone Trooper Gunner. I like looking at these, but I've never bought any. To me, Star Wars is Star Wars, and Transformers turn into Optimus Prime, friends, and foes. I don't mix the universes, but I admire the engineering that goes into these.

I haven't gone back to that store since. It was an easy find though. There must have been a dozen of them or more.

I got my 7" Diamond ROMULAN figure from BBTS in the mail today. He's awesome. He is dressed in the blue Romulan uniform though, as they are now showing him (the single-carded figure). Captain Kirk in the 2-pack with Spock is also in the blue Romulan uniform. However, I have a picture from SirSteve's that he took at ToyFair with a Romulan in his red uniform (presumably representing the commander played by Mark Leonard) but he is no where to be found for purchasing. WTH? I really also wanted a red Romulan uniform in my 7" collection. ???

probably not, since he was stashed high. But if he fell behind the shelves that may be a possibility.

Great --so if i get a regular card Cody -- the belt will be upside down & messed up?? what else is wrong on him?The belt is upside-down, that means the colors are on the wrong side, the packs are facing the wrong way, the hole for Obi-Wan's saber is on the wrong side (not that it ever worked tho'). Also, aside from the belt, the shoulder antenna won't be painted silver.

Hasbro said the mistake was because the factory separated the silver-card version from the regular, and when the team sent a note about the correction, it was only on the silver-card version's SKU. They have figured out the issue and say this will be corrected on the later portion of the run of the regular card.

You're welcome. I wish you had said something earlier about Galactus, I've seen him at several TRUs including the one where your stash was! I'm hitting another today, if I see him there, I'll try to stash.

Found the TRU exclusive CW Nikto Guard at the Porter Ranch store. It's a cool figure but I don't think it's worth $10.99. There is nothing special about it to justify a $3.50 price hike from the other CW figures. There was also remnants of the Kul Tesca exclusive figure there as well. Simi WM has lots of TVC ROTS wave especially the Sandtrooper and Cody.

Picked up a CW Y-Wing today at Marshalls for $39.99

-Snags
Good catch on the Y-Wing.
Forgot to post I saw the Y wing too at Marshalls this past week. 39.99 was still too much for me to spend on a Clone Wars ship, but cool (for us, not the brand) to see Star Wars at a discount.
Marshalls or TJ Maxx also had some CW Transformers too. Y wing, Cad Bane, and I think beige AAT. Almost got the AAT for the Action Fleet shelf. May get one if I see it again.

Also saw Friday at TRU the remote control Mill. Falcon flyer ship. I didn't scan it to see how much, but the last 2 smaller ships were 50 I think, so I'm sure it is more than I need to spend.

$10.99???

Dang. I am not a collector. I buy figures for dioramas.*

I want the Nikto Guard as a necessary diorama filler for a lot of scenes. I want to purchase at least 5 to 10 of him! Grrrrrrr! That could be $100 on one figure!

1) Jabba's Palace from movie when Dooku visits - maybe 2 for guards
2) Ziro's Pleasure Den from movie when Padme is captured
3) One or more of Hondo Ohnaka's henchmen (though most are Weequay, I realize)

And then I'm not sure where else I can use these figures, but ANIMATED aliens are hard to come by for diorama fillers.

* I like seeing "collectors' collections" (one of everything or something like that) but it's not satisfying for me. I like to set stuff up and skip figures I don't like, or can convince myself I don't need to buy - like perhaps Sgt. Bric and those bounty hunter figures that CW is coming out with.

However, I keep buying more Anakins, Ahsokas, and Obi-Wans, etc. since I require one for each set-up. I just try to only justify new set-ups when I want to display new figures with them that can't be displayed anywhere else (like you don't put Tusken Raiders on Coruscant, nor Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru).

Los Feliz TRU had a stack of those CW Niktos, $10.99 is outrageous. It's an ok figure for the basic line but somewhat drab, and the head is TINY. Honestly, I want to get behind this one, but these TRU exclusives are strangling the line with all TRU's markup.

As for the Mando Speeders and Camo ARF Troopers, it's really f'ing lame, but the next waves should have the respective figures in them so it will at least have some breathing room down the road. The worst part is they're not really fantastic outrageous figs, the ARF is a repaint of an ok figure, and the Mando Speeder is hardly top marks in its line. Part of the problem is clearly nobody gives a crap about Plo Koon on speederbike and nobody gives half a crap about the Naboo Star Skiff.

I have to sort my CW scene boxes and put the Niktos away - several or at least one in each scene box I need them in, and then see how many more beyond the 5 I'll require. Since he's an alien that can be used as a random, I should keep some extras handy.

If it's the one on Venice i'm thinkin of, that's a tricky spot & it's difficult to locate when you're drivingThat's the Rally's I mean, it's across from Brotman hospital, think of it between In-n-Out and Smart-n-Final. :D Or just think of it on Hughes ave. I haven't been to Rally's in probably a decade now, weird. Get off on the Robertson exit of the 10 and head west on Venice.

I found the 4 Mandalorians BP at Wal-Mart tonight. They're all the same but it's great for army building. However, variant armor paint might have been nice.

I also got the Voyager Battle Blades Optimus Prime. He'll go with my Deluxe Ratchet and Deluxe Ironhide as I scale my Autobots down for my collection for the upcoming 3rd movie. Because of their size, most of the Decepticons, even scaled down, should be Voyager Class - and I don't know if Michael Bay is going to modify Megatron again, let alone Starscream - or what new characters they're going to add. (If only they'd make a Scout Class BumbleBee, Mudflap, Skids, and Sideswipe).

In addition, from SW, I got another Flame Thrower Clone and left a Ki-Adi Mundi behind. Go-Ji (another clone) looks cool, but I have no need for him. I'd be very surprised if they make the Zillo Beast.

On Rebelscum's CW rumor list, it's suggested that Chancellor Palpatine and Senator Padme are finally going to be made. (Padme in action-gear does not count - I mean a real Senator outfit). Now Bail Organa could be made in action gear and I'd like that!

Oh, they also had Kit Fisto's Jedi Starfighter in the new packaging and on the back of the box, they showed the Clone Swamp Speeder and Plo Koon's Jedi Starfighter, prompting me to think that theses vehicles which I want will be out in the stores soon.

Massive haul today....... Both hoth packs 39.99 each thanks to a tip by crunchy. Both target dvd 4 packs hidden enemy and hostage crisis 24.99 each. and found both 2 packs senate commando and captain and cad bane and ig86 14.99 each, but passed on the cad bane one because its repacks. Also kit fisto fighter 23.98 at panorama wm. stashed 1 pm for location one more was on shelf. Also i think these have all been in the warehouse of the stores for awhile saw one of the shipping containers for the hoth packs as an employee was putting them out and they for some reason had the do not sell before august 6th warning on there so they have probably been there all along. 2 flame clones at panorama walmart as well along with the malevolence dvd 2 packs all repacks though so i passed they were 15.98. thanks for bankrupting me hasbro.

I got the Clone Swamp Speeder this morning at Toys R Us - along with $10 off from the gift card allowing me another Nikto, plus the Nikto I got from the buy over $30 and get one free (I bought a 3rd and 4th Nikto as well for army-building).

They also had the Vintage Box Big AT-AT (and it's been sitting there for about a week - or they've restocked - they have several).

And they had the Hyena Bomber (Droid Fighter) but I don't have any use for it at present.

I could have gotten a vintage-carded Grievous, but keep track of how many times I haven't pulled the trigger on this one, as I might one day find myself crying over paying e-tailer prices for him so I probably should just buy him soon.

Transformers: I finally found Breacher to go with my SeaSpray. I'm going to open them both finally some time this weekend.

They also had Insecticon. I fumbled with justification for buying him. He looked cool (Scout Class, btw) but I couldn't pull the trigger. I have this "scale issue" with my Transformers, but Scorponok was huge (first movie) so why can't Insecticon be as well? Maybe I'll buy him the next time I see him.

There was this Scout Class Decepticon car in almost BumbleBee's colors - but not a Camaro. I really want a Scout size BumbleBee, but I don't think I could disguise this guy as BumbleBee, plus Hasbro might make Bee in Scout Class one day soon. At Comic Con, they said EVERYTHING Bumblebee sells.

Oh, a Decepticon yellow stealth plane, Sunspot I think, was there too (Scout Class).

I wish I'd gone to Target this morning based on some of your reports. I suppose those larger ticket exclusive battle packs might still be there, so maybe I'll go now.

Anyway, looks like many of us made good finds today. Congrats to all.

I saw the Target Geonosian 2-packs but didn't want any.

They looked like the old ones.

They didn't have the one with the Rodian Jedi. This may be the only one I pick up when I see it.

I got one of the Mandalorian Speederbikes (to remove the rider and put Obi-Wan on) at Wal-Mart. I passed on another I saw at TRU.

I'm going to make the scene with Obi-Wan leading the guards (on his bike) and Pre-Vizla leading the soldier 4-pack (when they're loose). Overall, it's not too inspiring. I hope they make Duchess Satine to add to the scene.

The alien Gatoraide dealers were also cool and would make good figures if they reappear in future episodes.

Dirty Duarte WM had Jabba's Throne, and Saga Legends on clearance for $3.50, I bought their 2 Battle Droid small-eye sets.

Duarte Target had... Goji and Ki-Adi-Mundi, I think.

Monrovia TRU had 2x Hyena Bombers and 1 new AAT.

Pasadena Target had 2x CW Fire Troopers and the Geonosian R2 & 3PO 2pack, I bought them.

Los Feliz TRU had zip.


Geonosian 2pack R2 & 3PO are interesting, R2 is a new mold, has a cutter tool arm and a new door design with tech details inside, and the back door has a new winch with hook and more detail inside. The figure is almost the same height as the VOTC mold. The dome is also new and has an odd clear radar eye and isn't chromed.

3PO has 4-LOM's arms and legs, and a new torso and head(s).

BTW, this wave of Geonosis 2packs are apparently a fairly limited run, so get 'em while you see 'em.

alien Gatorade dealers??! what the heck are those?? :(

Tycho
10-15-2010, 01:51 PM
alien Gatorade dealers??! what the heck are those?? :(

They are alien alligators that sell Gatorade to Mandalorians (well, technically it's tea, but it looks like Gatorade). And it got into their financially failing school system, poisioning kids.

However, they represent the Tea Party as the creators decided to take Clone Wars political during the election season. Deregulation, corruption, loophole threaders, all in the name of "freedom to earn a living." Clone Wars took it too far.

If they wanted to do that, they could discuss "legalizing marajuana" by just using Star Wars' classic reference as it's stand-in - SPICE. (That's what it always was and Han Solo was a drug smuggler unless you think Jabba the Hutt was benevolent).

Then you could at least have more action episodes as Mandalorians entered the drug-smuggling business and fought the traditional spice cartels with their hired mercenary bounty-hunters like Aurra Sing, Bossk, and Cad Bane from Tiajuanna. :rolleyes:

I think good writing can parallel modern life with science-fiction, but Star Wars was already set up to do this with the spice trade since its debut in 1977.

Why re-invent it with lizard people selling Gatorade (tea)???

In any event, the cartoon lizard people (were they Barabbel or some other established EU race?) looked cool. They get into a firefight with Padme at one point (Naboo went to negotiate a settlement so the Trade Federation wouldn't).

Anyway, why do I feel like I had to appologize for this episode? I didn't write it. Worse - it's more like a 3-parter. Still worse - Mandalorians are supposed to be warriors, not softened with domestic programs and school lunches - though I could see how their "loot storage planet" had to evolve to that.

Found Goji and Flamethrower Clone at Valencia TRU. I have also been finding latest CW waves at Kohl's but refuse to pay their inflated prices. Also found the CW DVD packs at the Super WalMart. Those are an easy pass since they are just recycled figures. Also WalMart.com has Jabba's Throne back in stock if anyone wants to order one.

Target.com has those R2D2 / C-3PO Geonosian 2-packs that JT was talking about.

I don't need the C-3PO and I don't know if I need another R2. So I'll wait.

They do have the CW Hostage Crisis Bounty Hunters though - the Weequay lieutenant and the little Fosh alien, along with the 2 Commando Droid repaints.

I ordered 4 of these sets. I'm done.

BTW: Target.com also has the Hoth "value sets" for anyone who wants those (when they get back in-stock though).

The Clone Swamp Speeder gets listed - there or maybe it was at TRU.com, but it was out of stock at the moment.

I was only looking for stuff I want. There might be other things you are looking for there which I did not search for.

It might be worth your time to check it out.

I bought my Swamp Speeder there. I also think I want one more to use with Hondo Ohnaka's men (the Niktos I bought and the Weequay I'm getting in the Hostage Crisis battlepacks) because they're not likely to make those assault skiffs. If Hondo gets vehicles, it will either be his tank, or that flying saucer the Rapier-One. (I'd buy both!!!) The assault skiffs were the ones JarJar jumped on when he came to free Anakin and Obi-Wan, who were trying to take Dooku into custody from Hondo.

Did you see Plo Koon's starfighter by any chance? I need one of those to fly escort for my CW Y-wing.

Also can't wait for the Droid Gunship to start shipping. But I don't think we'll see that until right on top of Christmas.

Good News: found a bunch of new vehicles at TRU.

Bad News: they raised their prices to $27.99 Grrrrr.

Good News: I had $20 in coupons/Clone Ca$h so I grabbed 2 Swamp Speeders.

Luckily when i found mine at tru in burbank the shelf tag was old so she after arguing with me changed them to 24.99. also took my receipts to target to get my $20 difference in geonosis sets.

I've decided to send away for a few Sgt. Brics (though I dislike the character - I need alien "populations" for diorama scenes - which I really have to stop making because I don't actually make them - I put the appropriate figure components in a labeled box and hope I have room one day*).

So meanwhile, I'm cutting out POPs off carded figures I carefully manipulate to keep otherwise sealed so I don't lose stuff.

*I will be making at least one giant Clone Wars scene - Christophis from the movie:

2 Republic Fighter Tanks (in place of the stationary cannons which Hasbro doesn't make)

2 Corporate Alliance Tank Droids
1 AAT Tank driven by Whorm Loathsome
1 Octoparra Droid (I'll love opening this because I still haven't as of yet)

and the usual acompanying Droids, Clones, and Jedi. I also have those "retail" droids (they look like boxes on legs) from the new battlepack and I'm grateful that Hasbro made these.

I'd like to add a (NOT MADE) Republic Attack Shuttle piloted by Yularen and occupied by Master Yoda one day to give the Republic a little more. But that was the point - Obi-Wan and Anakin lacked the resources to hold out on Christophis.

So for me it's fun to (at least look forward to) set(ting) stuff up. I'm not really a "collector," but I found an excuse to get Sgt. Bric for figure variety, though I can't stand the guy in the cartoon.

There's a lot of Jedi Starfighters you can skip.

Can't wait for them to do Bariss Offee's or Luminara's, Agen Kolar's, etc. :rolleyes:

However, Jocasta Nu's Jedi Starfighter with Intergalactic Library Cart is essential for Hasbro to make! :crazed:

Nevertheless, the newest Delta-7 Jedi Starfighter mold (the one that separates into two ships) is worth having at least one of. But you could pick that up in the Ultimate Battlepack with Slave-One if you don't mind getting Mace's starfighter instead of Anakin's or Obi-Wan's. Slave-One is nevertheless worth it (though you might not collect prequel or Clone Wars toys either).

I got a box from Target.com today with 4 Hostage Crisis battlepacks.

So I got Cad Bane's little agent guy and the Weequay Pirate that's usually seen serving under Hondo Onakah (but I think Anakin killed this one). The set also features two Commando Droids. I'll just save them to fight the Clones that Sgt. Bric will be training. I guess I'm going to do that scene afterall - as I also get to hope for an animated Arcona and a use for Shaak-Ti (animated) in a display.

At Target, I got the TX-20 Tactical Droid with the CIS Army Tank.

Also at Target, they had Transformers' Insecticon (Scout Class). I am really tempted but unsure if I have a legitimate use for him.

I keep saying, "Scorpinok was way out of scale for a scorpion, but he hid in the desert sands, not flew around in broad daylight." These are robots in DISGUISE - the same reasoning that causes me to balk on the Dinobots.

Thanks - but which one? Everything goes to different set-ups.

2 Swamp Speeders:

One goes to Kashyyyk which I plan on constructing in 2011.*

One goes to Clone Wars (Dooku's capture by Hondo's pirates - because I doubt they will ever make those skiff-tank vehicles seen on the show that the Weequay pirates used).

The Mini-Rig Tank with TX-20:

This goes to the scene with the battle droids under TX-20's command advancing on Commander Bly and Aylay Secura as those two, plus Ahsoka and Captain Rex defend a wounded Anakin Skywalker in that planet with the little squirrel people who were pacificsts.

I have no idea when, and where, I'll be able to build this.

It's not a bad figure, but it's not accurate to the movie in size or design.

I am getting ready to go out to my club meeting in a few minutes here, and I'll check the mailbox then. I probably won't post again until very late PST, if that.

At midnight, I'm going to Wal-Mart to pick up Clone Wars Season 2 and my buddy (only a casual SW fan but hardcore SideShow / Hot Toys collector) may come over to watch at least one disc of the episodes in a marathon. (I think they went "Cad Bane, Zillo Beast, Mandalorians, Bounty Hunters) in terms of themes for the show last season (the BEST season of Clone Wars as of yet).

I'll probably want to post once I've watched some of the new DVD set.

This is ALL that remains from my BAD Part needs: (4 more parts)

R5-C7 left leg (x2[)/B], - I'm making 2 of them. This is from the ROTJ figure wave. I did not buy Malakali, Nien Numb, possibly another from this assortment.

[B]HK-47 rt leg, - This was from the AOTC wave (Captain Typho etc). If the part comes with Typho, I may actually be interested in buying the whole figure / part combo. I'll have to look him up to see what his BAD part was.

R4-P44 right leg - This was from the ANH wave I think (this might be the piece with Concept Ki-Adi Mundi, or Han "half-stormtrooper," Chewbacca co-pilot. There were several I skipped, as I was buying 18 (eighteen) Hrcheck Kal Fas (Saurins) to fill out "populations" for future dioramas.

At Wal-Mart, I got Clone Wars Season 2, and they had the figure 2-packs with the DVDs there. I'm only interested in Ahsoka and Plo Koon (for the upcoming Turbospeeder) but I couldn't pull the trigger. I have extra Ahsokas and maybe I can order a Plo Koon off an e-tailer pretty cheap. The other thing is that perhaps I need his soft-goods version (BAD) to sit in the speeder.

I just bought the Rodian Jedi and the Rebel Hoth set.

These are very nicely packaged and presented. Target had an extension to the Star Wars isle built out into the main thoroughway in the upper level of the store with Star Wars on every side of it.

Oh, they also had the Senate Commando 2-packs and I think Bane and an IG droid comprised the other one. I really didn't look as I wasn't interested.

Found CW wave 4 at target in west hollywood this morning. shakk, embo, boba, r4-p17, and mando. only one set so theres no more there. But if your looking for camo arfs there are 2 or 3 there as we speak.


Also think im gonna start a thread on the ending of TFU 2 i dont want to spoil anything but did anyone else notice that vader does something for starkiller in the lightside ending that sidious failed to do for him? its more of an observation but through there conversation and what proxy says its kind of obvious. Heres the thread post your thoughts ***spoilers inside****

Found 2 of these this morning. I grabbed Fett and R4-P17. Must have just missed the others.

this is old, but when i went lookin for at-ats last week, the burbank Kmart had a jodo kast. No at-ats though (last wed. i think), dunno if they replenished since then.

crunchy -- horror nights is over, i'll have a more flexible schedule now. lmk when u wanna meet up. (gotta go to universal tomorrow too, in fact)

Did some quick errands/store runs last night. PC wally had some at-ats for $79. They also had TVC marked to $6 each. I balked at the prospect of returning the ones i got for $8 at wally & target b/c I'd already swapped some out for the $10 TRU vintage. Too much hassle, time & gas to do another swap i figured. Saw the new mid-size vehicles and a few sen. commando packs at sepulveda target last nite too. A little too pricey on those double packs. Those damn bane/ig-86 packs will pegwarm forever just like the 1st geonosis packs.

By now i'm sure everyone knows the Slave I UBP is on sale at TRU for $79. I tried to get a price adjust for a BP (down to 19.99), but I didn't have anything to show there was a sale. Does anyone have the physical ad from that sale? I could sure use it.

edit: forgot to mention pc wally also had 3 HA Shadowblade sideswipes w/mikaela. Looked cool, but i don't collect that line. I got HA jazz b/c it looked so awesome, but decided to return it due to finances. If it ever goes on clearance though..................:twisted:

Hasbro Toy Shop has Animated Boba Fett, Shaak-Ti, Embo, Plo Koon's starfighter, etc. right now.

It doesn't look like they charged me shipping - and they are cheaper than Wal-Mart, Target, especially Toys R Us in most cases, I think. Unless there are sales or Promo Codes.

I was ignorant of that last issue. But I got my figures.

Now I just want the training Clone (Hevvy - that's the way it's spelled I think). I wonder if I should buy 4 Hevvys or if they are going to eventually make the whole squad with Fivs, and Echo - and whichever one I'm forgetting.

Went on HTS and ordered plo koons fighter, xanadu blood, and the tac droid and tank and clone w/ freeco. the exclusive20 code expired but u can still use sw2010 for 10% off and its free shipping for over 50. well worth it with the 10% off and free ship saves me gas money and wouldnt be any cheaper at the store. oh well guess im done again. nothing i need out there anymore.

The HTS order I placed today already shipped! Embo, R4, Shaak Ti, Boba and 3 Mandalorian Troopers. With SW2010 and the free shipping they were cheaper than retail. Good times...

While it helps the cases to clear, you can get Mandalorian Troopers in that army-builder 4-pack and probably save money.

However, you do create more turnover in the figure stock if you buy them separately.

God dammned, motherf***r, Dirty Sanchez took all the TRU Deadpool 2-packs from Burbank Toys R Us this morning. By the time I arrived he had bought them all. Burbank TRU had received around 50 2 packs and this a-hole took all the Deadpool ones.

What's new? It's frustrating, but not surprising. I'm sure he'll sell you one at a "reasonable" price. :upset:

Well, now I remember why I stopped going toy hunting to the stores. This is one of the many reasons.

I haven't seen any of the new TRU ML 2-packs. The one I truly want is the Winter Soldier set. Has anyone seen that one out there?

No. Slicker is a good friend of mine, and not even in California, (though it would be awesome if he was stationed in San Diego!).

He's stationed with the Navy serving our country in Florida.

Sanchez does not post here that we know of.

Slicker makes crazy posts here, that in his own little world, he thinks are funny. (I hope to never again see a Cruise Missile Trooper in my lifetime!)

Slicker is a collector.

Sanchez is a scalper.

End of story, pretty much.

Except that Slicker will probably make some sarcastic response to this post whenever he gets around to viewing it. :yes:

Dirty Sanchez is not even a collector. He's a sixty something retired a-hole who just drives around all day in his piece of crap saturn collecting toys all over the L.A area to scalp them later selling them to dealers at F&S or to collectibles stores. It's hard to compete against some old dude who's got nothing else to do all day when you have to work and have other responsibilities.:mad:

What a sad, sad man. Almost makes you want to get out of his way, when all he has is toys to fill his life. And possibly the blood of innocent children.

I was thinking that toys fill up a big part of all our lives - as we are here.

My kidney transplant resulted from a friendship I formed within this hobby, and when I was ill, this was a great interest that was easy to keep me going.

I also play on an amateur league baseball team - but I can't do that late at night when I can post on the boards here, or sort through my collectables and shop for more (with Wal-Mart being open 24hrs.

I also run waverunners and jet skis - weather dependent, and a warm daytime activity for sure. And I attend pro sports games (especially the Padres) very enthusiastically.

Now I found myself a love for writing and am working towards making a career of it. And I love movies. Still my Star Wars (and Transformers, Terminator, and Star Trek) hobby is an element amongst my interests that I'm very appreciative of being there.

It's great if you like movies, going to rock concerts, museums, and the theater. I do. I also ride horses in historical battle re-enactments and volunteer in my community. When I have to be by myself, I have Star Wars to fall back on - or posting here.

What I'm saying is that Dirty Sanchez might have a life - but his part in some of the LA collectors' Star Wars hobby is very unappreciated! Scalping annoys us all and depletes our chances of enjoying this aspect we find some fulfillment with in our lives.

I stashed a Flamethrower clone at Los Feliz TRU this morning. That was only possible because Sanchez wasn't there this morning. PM me if you want it.
