Congratulations Chris - there is nothing like it.  Try to not show them any of the SW movies until they're at least 6 months old.   ;)

Vintage Kenner / Re: The Vintage Star Wars Card Offer Grid
« on: May 18, 2008, 11:38 AM »
Hey folks.  I just wanted to let you all know about a little feature that we've worked on at ToyTraderz that I think you'll all like.  It's the Vintage Star Wars Card Offer Grid...basically a big grid of each figure and each card offer that it might come on. 


I have a Hoth Luke with Ackbar offer - where do we send them in?

Also, I have a Leia as Boussh Rotj Card with an offer that is not in your grid.  Is a blue circle sticker with yellow border and just reads "Return of the Jedi Figure Offer" with no picture.  Says the same thing below it in another language, but its not a tri-logo card.  On the back, offer is for Nein Nunb.  I can take photos of both and send them in if you want them.   ;)

In a comic pack? I doubt it. :P

I think few figures outside of the vintage line are "Super" articulated, but the comic pack figures have been pretty good lof late.  I was very happy with Quinlan Vos & A'Sharad Hett.  While not always the case, I think they tend to do a better job if the figure is brand new.  I also expect to see better quality now that the price of the line has gone up.

30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 2008 Target Order 66 2-Packs

I think the thinking is that Pixar's Cars did well at retail so why wouldn't Speed Racer? Kids like cars.

I think Mike's point is - do they really need two endcaps and a main aisle location for Speed Racer Cars?  Maybe the little hotwheel thinks will sell, but I don't see any movement on the Speed Racer Car/Figures, whereas the Iron Man Displays are completely cleaned out.  I would have bet big money on Iron Man being way more popular than Speed Racer prior to their release - this should not have been such a surprise to retailers.

Back on topic, my local target has the Order 66 sets (what's left of them) off the front displays and flexed into the main aisle.

Other Toy Lines / Re: Transformers

I also hope they get around to making a transformable stoplight like they had on the Cybertron toon.

Well now that's just ridiculous.  You'd be proud of me Mikey - I missed the Friday meeting to help out at a Mothers of Multiples sale, and low and behold - they had a toy section.  Lots of transformers stuff, so I picked up a Megatron (armada?) Tank to add to the ranks for $2.  His tank mode is lamer than I thought, but surprised by the cool electronics.  ;D

Another wow episode with an awesome ending. This season is moving at a great pace.

Anyone know when this will be up for viewing on scifi.com?  I thought they were usually ready to go by Saturday afternoon following a new episode, but no sign of the new episode yet.  Bummer for those of us that don't get the scifi channel.   :P

Hulu.com usually has the episode by Saturday morning. Broadcast quality.

Hulu didn't have it yet either, but I managed to snag it by searching around google a bit.   ;D

JUMP!

Justin, maybe you need to come over sometime. Comcast has basically the whole season so far "on demand". Better viewing on a TV than a computer screen.  ;)

I might just take you up on that!  The online thing has been working okay for me since I went with reduced cable several weeks ago, but I've usually caught the latest episode late Sunday or during the following week.  As of tonight, the latest episode is still not up, and I can't find anything or anyone that knows when they post the new ones.   :-\

Thanks to the Jaybird for ferrying all my trade goodies last night ("and for taking the Yoda head out our storage room" yells my wife. )  ;)

For those of you that have been waiting, Target has their Iron Man figures on sale for $7.99.  :)

John

None of my Targets have Iron Man figures.

You mean they're sold out or they have no pegs for Iron Man? :P

Nowadays is very hard to acquire a real vintage SW figure from 3/4 inches,

Check Ebay - you can find lots of vintage figs for good prices, particularly if you need a bunch and buy them in a lot.   ;)

Not a fan of them releasing original vintage figs and I don't think they ever will.

Hoping the SW Emperor Head Thingie is available online as well, but looking to pick up at least one of these if not two.

If anyone is able to nab me a Kazar set, I would love to get one of those.  Any idea on how much they'll charge?

The Wal-Mart where we live treats there employees well and I've talked with many of them over their years of being there and they seem genuinely happy. So in the small scale it seems ok to me, but the grander picture is always different. BTW Jedi I love the flying pizza between Han and Vader.  I'm still trying to figure out how to upload without having a website. If anyone has the time please email me, Thanx!

Thanks!  I still crack up once in a while when I see that flying pizza.  Can't remember what site I got it from, but just search for star wars avatars sometime and you will see some cool stuff.

As for picture hosting, I use photobucket.  Here's a link to my pictures so you can see how it lays them out.  You can just copy the code from right below your picture - very slick.  Just hit Join Now in the upper left side of the screen and register (its free and I've gotten no spam from them that I know of).  ;)
