Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC/OTC Purchases
« on: September 9, 2004, 11:33 AM »
After reading Scott's report of finding VOTC 3PO and Lando at TRU, I decided to go check out our local store here yesterday afternoon.  Luckily enough, I found a Vader, Lando, and a C-3PO.

Excellent Score!

Congrats on the find, Brian.   :)

As for the case assortment debacle with Hasbro, it looks like NewForce is getting shafted by Hasbro big time as well. 

They got only 50% allocation of their wave 1.5 order, they never got wave 1, and they are just now recieving a small portion of their wave 2 orders despite the fact that the big brick and mortar boys are now getting wave 2.5 into the stores.

Hasbro is really screwing the e-tailers over big time with the OTC.  I'm starting to wonder what the cause is...

Are the big boys (Target, Wally, TRU) ordering up more than usualy numbers of product to support the DVDs OR did Hasbro really cut back the overall production numbers on this line?

Dang.

There's gonna be nothing left of Florida at this rate!  When was the last time that FLA was threatened with 3 big storms in a row over a single month like this?

Can someone point me towards an AL pitcher who is throwing better than Johan Santana right now?!?

That's right, THERE ISN'T ONE.

10-0 in his 11 starts since the All-Star break with a 1.38 ERA.

Since June 9, Santana is 15-2 with a 1.49 ERA   :o

Go Twinkies! ;D

Nice pull Jeff!  But since you didn't get a Han or Chewie, I guess you're just gonna have to keep on goin'...   ;)

Well... I am impressed with them so far.

The ones I've got have some top notch paint jobs, unlike some of the other reports I've read.  I might just have to buy a few more boxes and see if my luck holds out.  Maybe, if I pull a few more VRs, I can trade them for the Han/Chewie that I want :)

Ugh.  There was a lot of chatter today on the news about ditching WallyWorld in Favor of the Mailman.  Can't say I'm too thrilled about that one... maybe we could sign Malone and trade Wally for "The Glove" GPayton too?

OK,

So, tonight, I went shopping at the Mall with the Mrs., and I decided to pick up a box at the gaming store ($12) to check them out.   :-[

Here's what I got:

Common figures (4):
  8  Hoth Trooper
38  Stormtrooper
51  Jawa
59  Twi'lek Scoundrel

Uncommon figures (2):
16  Rebel Officer
32  Royal Guard - also has bent force pike  :(

Very Rare figures (1):
31  Probe Droid

Booyah!  Pulled a Very Rare out of the first box I bought!

I didn't really think that I could tell the difference in weight when I picked out the box, but I did choose carefully and got myself a nice Very Rare, so maybe there is something to it after all?

You know, I might just grab a pack of these when I buy my weekly comics this week. 

I'd really like Han and Chewie, but since they are rare and knowing my luck with HeroClix (trying to get a GL), I'll probably end up with a box of Bothan Spy, Hoth Trooper, Rebel Commando, and Rebel Pilot. >:(

Maybe I should just save myself the aggrivation and pass...  :-\

Hmmm...

Just cancelled my wave 2.5 cases at EE and noticed something strange.

vOTC Wave 2.5  - due NOV 2004
vOTC Wave 3  - Pre Sold Out, due SEP 2004
vOTC Wave 3, rev 1  - due NOV 2004
vOTC Wave 3, rev 2  - due NOV 2004

Think they just missed updating wave 3?  Or will the RotJ vOTC show up at EE before the ESB figures do?   :-\ 

Or is Hasbro gonna screw me over yet again by cancelling wave 3 and forcing me to grab a wave 3 rev 1 or rev 2 case!  >:(

November?!?

August, then September, now November!  We skipped right by October!  At this rate, I'll end up getting the 2005 waves (due in Nov) before the ESB vOTC figures!

I think I'll just head on over there and cancel my wave 2.5 pre-order.  I've already got Vader and Yoda (thanks Scott!) and Lando is in the wave 3 case I pre-ordered, so I just need to track down a couple 3PO at retail.  Not too hard I hope, especially since they are hitting the area now...

I think yahoo forces you to use WW until all players "clear" waivers.  

In a few days it should work the way you are saying where the sucky teams get first crack on guys who are on waivers, but once they clear waivers anyone can pick them up at any time (they are FA).

I don't think yahoo let's you set everyone to free agent right away... :-\
