Stopped at the same tru again today restocked the vintage and put out 4 cases of repacked cw that only included the new grevous and no pre, aurra, or mando gaurd. and 1 legends wave which i picked up the deco updated bounty hunters.
As for splitting your transactions - I didn't need to do that. I asked about it, and as long as I bought pairs of things, they gave me 1/2 off every 2nd item - from Transformers anyway. I didn't find any SW that I wanted on my last trip.
Hit A second tru and found.out where there is a cakeload of vintage n cw revision 1 n 2 avail that they will sell pm me for location. Trying to avoid waking the scalpers.
[To DarkKnight in a PM:]
"Hi DarkKnight, I am Unemployed-Cheap-Basterd. I am not a scalper. I am an eBay Enterpreneur.
There's a difference. I have my own postal scale at home!
I just saw your post momentarily ago when I returned from taking public transportation to Ross and Kohl's in order to buy out their entire Star Wars toy inventory.
I am not the kind of low-life that regular forum members here deplore. I only have 3,000,000,000 positive feedbacks on eBay because I once stumbled upon that website after I accidentally found 600 Darth Maul action figures in April of 1999. I was kind and only let them go for $400 each to parents who were buying them for their small children.
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?)
By the way, if you help me out, I would love to send you FREE SaeSee Tiin and Plo Koon figures if you'll just pick up the shipping & handling for me.
PS - do you know if there are any extremely rare figures from Twilight: Eclipse? It was just a passing curiousity of mine...
Dark Knight, if you don't know me very well, I was just kidding with my post.
Went on a SW and TF run around noon...
TRU Los Feliz - 1 animated Cody in new CW packaging.
TRU Monrovia - 4 old CW figures in new packaging, old SWTFs in new packaging, 2x leader-class TF Hooker Prime, 8 each Generations War for Cybertron Prime & Bumblebee (stupid f'ing scalpers snatching up a mountain of Thrust and Drift figures).
TRU Burbank - both new SWTFs (Yoda/Nu-class shuttle & Rex/Freeco bike), 2x Generations Thrust, 1 War for Cybertron Prime, Hunt for Decepticons Hooker Prime & Deluxe Jetblade (repaint of Dirge) & 1x Legends Ravage, a veritable mountain of TF Power Core Combiner 2packs.
I bought Legends Ravage, PCC Huffer w/ Caliburst, Generations Thrust, WfC Prime and Bumblebee. Thanks to the bogo50% deal, it wasn't too hard on the ol' wallet.
Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.
Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.
The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
Received a case of vintage in the mail today. The cards look great (although quite a few of them were banged up) but I'm not impressed with the figures for the most part.
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 runs today:
Woodland hills TRU - saw 1 WFC Prime. Saw CW figs (Ahsoka, Cody, Rex, snow Rex, BD etc.) in the new packaging including 2 of the new Grievous. Bought both since it was BOGO50%. Only need one though. If someone wants to take the other off my hands -its yours for $6.16. Very good card. I'll take the other card, since i'll open anyway.
VN TRU: saw Battle hooks LC Prime, Powercore combiners, new Legends class bb & prime, deluxe sea attack Ravage, battle blades BB, and Jetblade.
SW: saw 1 more new CW General Grievous and stashed. PM for location. They also had remnants of Saga Legends in new packaging.
Oh ya, Big big shoutout to Commtech for hookin me up with a GI Joe Wraith tonight!!! Tech is the man!!!!!!
