The Force Awakens / Re: TFA 3.75" Jungle/Space/Snow/Desert Line
« on: July 17, 2016, 10:21 PM »
I've seen Rey get down to about $12 or $13 recently on Amazon.  But the wave with unmasked Kylo Ren and the FO Stormtrooper Commander?  I don't think I ever saw it at retail.  I bought mine through Amazon or HTS when they were available at MSRP, and those went very quickly.

The Stormtrooper Commander was the only one I saw at retail, at a TRU.  I haven't seen Rey and Han for less than $15.77 on Amazon, and I've been looking every day.  And the weird part is that those prices are to buy them directly from Amazon where before they'd always been on point with MSRP.

HTS has just said they're coming soon every time I look there, once a week or so, for the last few months.

Not sure if I should just overpay now or if there's a chance they're still on the way.  Maybe Comic Con will shed some light on what they're doing?

Rob, keep an eye out on HTS' eBay store. They have posted the latter waves on several occasions for retail price and often with free shipping. It has helped me considerably. Right now they have several figures available though not the specific ones you mentioned...

Repeating my list from last year since only one is to be made (and apparently painted poorly based on what has been shown)...

1.) Mara Jade (Emperor's Hand)
2.) Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight - Jabba's Palace)
3.) Corran Horn (Jedi Knight)
4.) Corran Horn (X-Wing Pilot - Green!)
5.) Wedge Antilles (X-Wing Pilot or Snowspeeder Pilot)
6.) Rebel Fleet Trooper (for JJ!)
7.) Grand Admiral Thrawn
8.) Han Solo (Bespin)
9.) Princess Leia (Hoth w/ second head for Bespin)
10.) Snowtrooper Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard)

There are a couple thousand of him and Finn and the repacks and about 100 Kylos at mine. :)

Seriously the reshipment we got, overkill.

Keep an eye out on that store JJ. Out here in the burbs of Chicagoland, a couple of stores marked the TBS figures on clearance. I had some luck finding a Poe and Finn for $5 last week, also got their Resistance X-Wing for $25 ( for the price a fun toy!)

Around me, Target has been the place to get the Ezra speeder. I've seen it probably 4-5 times, the only new thing out there

I saw the Ezra speeder today.  The light saber in the one I saw looked a little flimsy, so I passed.  But I did notice that this version of Ezra has the scars on his face that he's had since late in season one of Rebels.

I picked this up last week and it's a fun toy. Nice detailing and doesn't feel as cheap as some other vehicles. The blade is removable from the hilt, that may have played a part in the flimsiness you saw. The blade and hilt can be stored in the rear compartment where the engine should be.

After reading Dresells description of his Wal-Mart Jabba I had to pull mine out of storage and found it fused to a Max Rebo piano and a cinema scene stand. The piano is ruined and now I don't know what to do with the  Jabba. Very disappointing.

Great write up, makes me want to consider getting one of these guys if/when he can be found at retail.

I'm not sure I can make a list of top 10 wants for the 6" line that wouldn't include a lot of figures they will obviously get to. But I'll give it a shot, who knows one of these could win.  ;D

1.) Mara Jade (Emperor's Hand)
2.) Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight - Jabba's Palace)
3.) Corran Horn (Jedi Knight)
4.) Corran Horn (X-Wing Pilot - Green!)
5.) Wedge Antilles (X-Wing Pilot or Snowspeeder Pilot)
6.) Rebel Fleet Trooper (for JJ!)
7.) Grand Admiral Thrawn
8.) Han Solo (Bespin)
9.) Princess Leia (Hoth w/ second head for Bespin)
10.) Snowtrooper

Droid Factory 2013 / Re: 2013 Droid Factory = NOT Dead in 2015?
« on: May 21, 2015, 11:15 PM »

If anything, I think praising them at the $20 price is kind of like saying, "I accept $20 for repaints/repacks as a great idea!", which seems like a bad stance to take.

JJ, that's the biggest issue I see with this, as well as the overall increase in prices for figures. An acceptance of high prices for low quality or things we have seen before. People ******** themselves over these  figures is nuts, why would anyone want to pay $20 for yet another clone repaint or flaky battle droid?

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Recents Finds and/or Purchases

Oofah Jason, that's some steep pricing on some ultimately crummy stuff.  If Hasbro bumps pricing on 5 POA to now articulated pricing, I'd imagine that's not going to go over well at the checkout line for them.

I don't buy the 5 POA much at this point, but I wouldn't buy it at all at those prices.  The quality just isn't there for it.

It's barely there on the articulated stuff most of the time, to justify a purchase.

Yeah JJ, it's just plain sick. I'm only after the crew of the Ghost for the 5 POA line since I figure Hasbro will likely never be doing them in TBS movie style, unfortunately this particular TRU seems to be the only place around me getting new stuff so it's a kick in the pants. Thankfully, I only need the Sabine 2 pack now and I can call it quits on this stuff. Between crazy prices, poor figure designs, and horrible distribution issues, the fun of collecting sure is being sapped outta me. Thankfully there's still vintage.  ;D

The TRU in Schaumburg, IL has raised the price on Saga Legends and Mission Series to $9.99 & $11.99 respectively. SL now is the same price as TBS, that's obscene!

This is likely an isolated incident, the store is in a huge shopping district near some wealthier towns. But it's insane nonetheless.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Re: Black Series Rumors
« on: January 9, 2015, 11:13 PM »
$12.99 confirmed in the far northwest suburbs of Chicago. Testing or not, Target is going to wind up pricing many people of buying from their stores.

Now that's a deal!  Congrats Man!

Thanks JJ! It's a fun set. How you been, ping me sometime.

Greg - both stores in was at today had the same sale. I'd venture the other stores in the asrea are the same.

Found the Biker Scout w/ Speeder Bike set at Target today. They're having a BOGO 40% off sale on all toys this week, so was able to get 2 of these for $32 + tax each. Takes a bit of work to get the Scout on the bike properly, but once he's on it makes for a great display. Check the JD Facebook page for a photo ;)
