The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars Battle Packs
« on: June 29, 2008, 08:35 PM »
Are these going to be mass retail items, or are they going to be yet another Target exclusive?

I'd almost be happier if it was just at Target.  Its pretty much the only place to get SW stuff around here anyway.   ::)

Wow. That Obi-Wan pack looks slick.  Nice to see the smaller box size in these too!

I'd be really happy with any of these:

Guri
Kyp Durron
Ganner Rhysode
Jaina Solo (Late Teens)
Alema Rar (Pre mutilation)
YVH1 (Vong Hunting Battle Droid)
Mara Jade-Skywalker (Jedi Master from NJO)
Bastila Shan (KOTOR)
Sith Trooper
Corran Horn (NJO)

Left a few other favorites out, since I know everyone else is already voting for them.   ;)

Kubricks / Re: Series 9
« on: June 28, 2008, 09:01 PM »
Depending on how the chases pan out, there may be several of us with extra boxes of 12 from the mega order for Series 9.  Series 10 ordering hasn't started yet.

I'd be looking to grab a box from a master case where the chase has not been checked for/found.  Or in other words, splitting the case with someone prior to them opening any of the boxes.

I saw the movie figures, i was looking for the Fin Fang Foom wave. People over at Fwoosh have found them so i figured i would take a shot.

Haven't seen them around Minnesota at all, but they might be in back waiting for a reset.  The Target action figure aisle is looking pretty sad these days.

I am sure a little research would answer this for me, but I'm just too damn lazy. How much does it cost to order a box of 12? I'm really considering Series 9 and 10... :-\

I might go for a box as well.  This wave is looking better all the time...

My wife just called to say the Order 66 sets were delivered today, thanks again!

Congrats on winning Keonobi and my condolences on apparently getting kicked out of your house.   :o

The poor little boy that muttered "Master Skywalker what are we going to do?" has got to be one of them they will make. 

Will be interesting to hear more about this.  As a father, I think one of the most disturbing parts of all six movies is that scene with the kid coming to Anakin for help and him igniting his lightsaber and closing the door.  They obviously had to kill off the younglings somehow, but they really didn't have to show it in my opinion.  Making a figure of a young child character who's only role is to show that Anakin killed off a bunch of little kids just doesn't sit right with me.

That being said, I certainly hope that its something like the Solo kids, though I'd much rather have versions of them in their teens.

Not sure what prices you listed, but if JJ thought they were ridiculous enough to close you down then you're a moron scalper anyway.  Good riddance.

Obviously Minnesota is the only place these have yet to show up at.

I don't think we'll have "real time" tracking like this in our lifetime or least not for a long time.  I doubt companies will make their shipping logs for distribution centers and stores public.  At best you might get a read on what's in stock as of 8am if a retailer chose to offer this, but who knows if a customer or employee bought it at 8:01?  Product can still sell between the time that you saw it online and the time you get to the store.

I think Target would be the most likely to offer something like this given their current aisle checking machines, but Target codes their toys under a DPCI, rolling several UPCs into one code.  At best, you would know that more TAC figures came in, but not which specific ones, unless they decided to totally revamp all of their item coding for some reason, and I just don't see a good rationale for that in the near future.

I think its far more likely that stores start selling more of their merchandise online.  Target has avoided smaller ticket items thus far, but I think they'll increase the menu over time.  Think about the advantages of ordering from one or more distribution centers versus the much smaller inventory available at a single store.  They could also adopt Wal-Mart's ship to store program, where you wouldn't even have to pay shipping.

If anyone finds an extra battle rancor all cheap and can sell me just the rider for like $15 I'd love you forever.

And you'd have a nice inexpensive rancor to boot.



I might have picked one up for you, but you're showing too much affection for this stage of our relationship.
