Saga '02-'04 / Re: Some Walmarts NOT carrying Star Wars now!

Sounds great Jedirhino, I would try to be there for the grand opening if I were you.  You might be able to get some brand new stuff.

Yep, dimetrodon, I had a little extra time today while I was out, and went by a Walmart that is pretty far out of my way.  I thought to myself, "aw hell, maybe they will have some newer stuff in, I might even score another red Battle Droid, Imperial Officer, or even a Yoda/Chian finally."  But heck no, I went by there and they were stuffed with the Watto/Lott Dodd wave.  Yay.

 :P

Come to think if it, down the line that can stick this guy in the same box as the POTJ SNowspeeder. Just a real nice window box w/ a Kamino background.

Thats IF they decide to do so, and it would have to come with a Kaminoian rider.

Not a bad idea there.  But you're right, it's a big IF.

This is a great topic and I ressurected it from days past because I am in favor of many more playsets being made.  

Would you all want it to be exactly like the vintage version?  Or an all new mold?

I would prefer an all new mold, especially if they made the plastic look more realistic.  And a couple more Ewoks would be awesome, they could also include the shield generator bunker from 1997 by simply packing it in.  It would definitely add to the play value for the kids.  Hell, put several figures in this:  clean Scout Trooper, CT Stormtrooper, new Ewok and Endor Rebel 3rd head variant.

 :P

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone 3-pk ...does it suffice?

Now that it seems that these have even less articulation than we had hoped for, what are your thoughts towards these?  Is this going to affect the number of sets you would purchase?  And aren't the guns supposedly sculpted onto the hands?

 :P

I think we all already agree that this probably won't ever be made, and I'm certainly not holding my breath, but somewhere down the line they might end up making one.  You never know for sure what Hasbro might try and pull off, especially if these appear in the Clone Wars cartoon (that would actually be very cool).

As for the Reek, well Hasbro was stupid by not releasing the Acklay at the same time, or at least the fat lard beast that tramples Anakin on Naboo.  They overproduced the Reek big time.

 :P

I don't see anything wrong with doing that, it's not like they are going to sell anyway. :P

On the other hand though, they keep all inventory through the computers and won't order more unless the quantity is reduced through the registers at a sale or through a telxon (at least that's my understanding).

 :P

Hey CHEWIE, I noticed that durring the POTJ line, the Wal*Mart in DeSoto wasn't carrying any Star Wars goods at all.

It looks like in non-movie years, only the big Wal*Mart stores carry the product now.

Makes things that much harder.

Yep, that's one of them!  The other one I think is in Belgrade?  Or is it another town...

Did you know there is a new nice Walmart in Potosi and another in Desloge?  If you're ever in the area, I would recommend checking them out.  Also, I did find the new red Battle Droid at the Walmart in Union.  Too much driving I do at times!   :-\

Saga '02-'04 / Some Walmarts NOT carrying Star Wars now!

My job requires quite a bit of traveling, and this past week I have been my two smaller and older Walmarts that no longer carry Star Wars stuff.  This really, really sucks.  Especially since they have quite a bit of space for GI JOE, Transformers, Power Rangers, etc.  But no space anymore for Star Wars.  Grrr....

 :P

Thanks mosnab, it will be a day long remembered.  First I found a blonde Imperial Officer, soon I was to find a red Battle Droid. :D

Target stores everywhere in St. Louis, MO are totally cleared out too.  I'm hoping this means that sometime very soon new stuff is going to be easier to get.  Please Hasbro Please!

I like Spuffy's idea.  Make both colors like with the Hoth Han.  I'll probably get several of this figure anyway to open (for dioramas and custom fodder), so the more variety the better!

 :P

You're probably right Jedirhino.  I think if it was a TRU exclusive though, everyone would be happy.  Those that want one have the opportunity, those that don't can pass on it, Hasbro makes some sales, and at the same time they don't get burnt by overproduction.

 :P

Yeah, I usually check, and thankfully, Hasbro has been doing pretty good lately from what I have seen.  I did see a new hover chair Yoda at a collector's shop last week that had a horrible paint job on one of his eyes.  The guy was charging $23.00 for it.  ::)

With the new Imperial 4-pks, I have had to be very picky with them.  It seems that 9 out of 10 I see have horrible paint applications on the Stormtrooper mask and the AT-ST driver eyes.

 :P

« on: June 11, 2003, 02:00 AM »
About once every few months, I take my collection down and rearrange everything to make new dioramas, new scenes from the movies, etc.  I guess they kind of get cleaned off when I do that. :D

And that is always at least a full day project.   ;)

I want new, all-around awesome updated versions of Stormtrooper Luke/Han.  Good Lord that would make me one happy Wookie.

Since they've lowered prices on Star Wars cases, I would have to say that Entertainment Earth has really moved up the ladder for me, especially since they are usually very fast at getting stuff in and sending it out to their customers.  They also guarantee mint items if you are needing your stuff carded.

I still go with newforce most of the time though, but lately they have been ever so slow on getting stuff out as well as updates.  Not that I am saying it's their fault though.

 :P
