The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Wampa and Hoth Luke
« on: May 13, 2015, 01:32 PM »
I love how Target lists this item.  Can't order it online.  It doesn't exist in a store.  If you use the store pickup option the DPCI # is the same as Jabba and Scout Trooper, so you'll just get a Jabba when you show up.

Only Dorkside and maybe one other place has put them up yet...  Patience on it Dave, I think it'll be soon on the other places like EE and BBTS.  I'm waiting (hoping) for singles to go up soon as I'd like to just pick up what I want, and leave it at that.

Yeah, I'm a little concerned these figures will never hit retail, and will have very little availability via e-tailers.  It seems the last wave of a line is always hard to come by, and with the way Hasbro has been managing their assortments / production numbers I'm not sure what to expect here.

I never really found the last waves of Rebels at retail, and most were only available on HTS for a very brief window.

Has EE offered this wave yet?  I couldn't find it on their site.  Or is it sold out and removed already?

Should (re)launch on many sites on Sunday/Monday

Still haven't seen this pop-up at EE.  Has anyone managed to pre-order this at other sites?

We've got an original hand me down Wii that needs to be replaced with something better.  Now I have an excuse.

Any thoughts on the best system to get for kids currently aged 5-8 that will work with this?

We've got a pile of Wii games, but if WiiU stinks, I'm open to making a change.

I can only imagine how the guy on the other end of this deal is going to feel about it...  would be interesting to know how long they have had it, where/when they got it, etc.

Imagine taking care of that car for 40+ years only to have someone show up after all this time and take it from you because it was stolen 40+ yearsa ago.  :(

I was thinking the same thing.  Is the current "owner" completely hosed?  Does his insurance cover this sort of situation?

Does Paul's dad have to pay back the insurance company that paid him out 40 years ago?

Amazing story!  Let us know how it ends!

Saga Legends / Re: Saga Legends "Mission Series" Figure 2-Packs
« on: April 25, 2015, 08:30 PM »
With the supposed demise of the Legends/Rebels line, do we know what is happening with the MS line, and when we will see the Vader/Asohka pack?   Have they previewed anything else in this line beyond the Hera wave?

It seems a shame if they've killed the Rebels/Legends line and they have Season 2 starting this summer.  I still think there are some great options for figures there.  I'm fine if they all come out as two packs in the MS line, but I'd like to see more Rebels content.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Class II Vehicles
« on: April 25, 2015, 03:16 PM »
Finally cracked open my Imperial Troop Transport.  Overall I think its a pretty solid toy for $20.

Its solid and sturdy, so it won't break while playing with the kids.  The spring loaded missiles work just fine and figures fit in there perfectly.  Sure its a little short and figure's heads stick out over the top, but its not that bad for a toy.  At least figures can sit in the vehicle to "drive" it.  I like the internal spots for holding guns and stuff too.

My only two gripes are that I hate putting on tiny, tiny little stickers.  I wish they would either leave them out of the design, or find a way to paint them on.  And it would have been nice to have rolling wheels on the bottom.  Ultimately I understand that wheels were probably omitted to save on the cost, but it would be fun to be able to roll the vehicle across the floor.

I would definitely recommend picking up this toy if you ever come across it.  I got mine from HTS, and have never seen one in a store.

Wow.  I barely saw any of these in the stores. 

Was Hasbro's production run that small, or did they ship them all to eastern Europe to be clearanced?

I wonder if the same thing is going to happen to the TBS figures.  I don't think I've seen anything new since October.

So did they mention a tentative release date for Season 2?

11
Umm, what is going on with the distribution on these figures?  Just saw that EE has a case of these for pre-order for $165!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think I've seen any replenishment of TBS figures at Target or TRU since Christmas.

Mission Series and Legends have been coming through (at least at Target) distribution for the past month, but nothing from TBS.

Anybody know if we're going to see these figures at retail or if these are all getting dumped overseas?

Was there any mention of what the new bonus content was?

13
I hope even if they don't replenish their stock they let us pre-order using the discount.

I missed Hera, but got the Imperial Troop Transport and other goodies at a sweet discount. 

I haven't been able to track down much of anything at retail lately, so any help from HTS is much appreciated!!!

I'm hoping to score the new 6" figs in the coming weeks.

Anybody have any idea on rough release date for Season 2?  I swear my kids ask me every day when a new Star Wars Rebels will be on...

Another MN guy here.  I'll take one too.  Hopefully you can just ship one package to Jeff and he can hand them out at the next meeting.

Let us know how/when to send check/Paypal.
