Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC/OTC Purchases

I can't believe I actually found some OTC figures I WANTED.  Scored these today:

OTC Luke X-Wing Pilot
OTC Luke Jedi
OTC Bossk

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends

Found ML 6 today in NJ and NY!  And, it was at WalMart & TRU...even better!  Scored Juggernaut, brown Wolverine and movie Punisher.  Those were the only ones I saw.

But the coup de grace for todays haul?  A loose yellow Daredevil!  I know it cost $20, but I think it was a pretty sweet find.

I saw Shelob today at a Comic Shop.  They wanted $20 for her, so I passed.  It looks great, though!

Revenge of the Sith / Re: AT-TE

While I've heard rumor of a high price ticket item, I can say that it isn't the AT-TE.  I've heard that a playset might be on the way, and that might be occupying that price point.

I would definitely like to see an AT-TE.  I think it's a pretty cool vehicle, but I think the only way we might see it is if it's about the size of the Republic Gunship and is offered at a $39.99 price point.

I like the blast door frame behind him, and the blaster shots going by just add the icing to this cake!

Well, what is this?

I've been seriously considering selling 3-4 lines worth of old stuff that I have.  It would probably be my GI Joe, Transformers, Spuer Powers and Secret Wars stuff.  Thing is, I don't know how to go about doing it.  I abhor ePay, and I'd like to sell to someone serious who is also a collector AND is willing to pay a fair price.  It stinks.

I just ordered VOTC wave 3 through EE.  I also cancelled my wave 2 order through SWS today.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Anybody find OTC at retail yet?

Finally saw an OTC basic figure tonight.  Too bad it was the reissue Cantina Han.  >:(

Uh-Oh, Nick,

Better re-check your order then...

Somewhere around July 7th, most e-tailers CHANGED the case packs for waves 2 and 2.5 cases.

From EE, wave 2:
"UPDATE July 7, 2004 - Assortment Change. Lando Calrissian has been removed from this assortment by Hasbro. Please see item number HS85213B2. "

Lando got pulled and replaced with Han and Luke.  

The case-pack of 2x Han, Luke, Vader, Yoda is how EE, NewForce, etc are all listing the wave 2 case now, and it has been confirmed by Cloud City, Brian's Toys, and ActionHQ all of whom got the wave 2 cases in this week.  I would assume that this will end up being the case for too since their case pack is exactly how the old EE case pack was listed.  :(


Thanks for the heads up!  I contacted SWS, and they confirmed that the case assortment had in fact been changed.  In fact, it appears that they've pulled that case assortment from their Hasbro product listings.  I hope they'll let me change my order.

Regarding TRU, they're having a hard time competing.  With who?  WalMart and Target.  Those big box stores order a lot, and they've managed to get their stock turnover down pat.  WalMart just happens to be the highest volume toy retailer in the US.  TRU may be in for a fight to hang onto their market share.

On another note, I saw this picture over at, of the Balrog prototype alongside a Gandalf the White figure, to show the scale.  This thing is going to be larger than I thought.  I'm not able to be into this line big time, but man that Balrog is tempting.  

NECA actually makes that Balrog.  A completed version was featured on the most recent issue of Tomart's.

I was saddened to hear that Coors is buying Molson.  Molson was like mother's milk while I was in college.  We even used to make beer runs into Canada to buy Molson Bradour at the Canadian duty free shop.  Now I just hate to think of how the people from Coors may literally water down one of my favorite beer brands.  Drat!
