The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Jon Stewart Trooper
« on: August 17, 2010, 02:47 PM »
I could see Stewart auctioning this off for charity.  Else a limited exclusive thru the Daily Show's website to benefit a charity would be cool.

In other words, you may be right that there will be more, but since there is a high likelyhood that the other sets will just be more repaints/repack sets, no one really cares enough to comment on it.

I guess i'll just continue to delude myself that they would release the Hoth Hanger Sled   ;D

123
I haven't watched the video, but at Hasbro's presentation did they explicitly say that they are only re-releasing the Sled & Tech?  I'm thinking I missed something because i'm the only one reading the presentation slide expansively to say that this will be part of an assortment of OT vehicles...

Poodoo..

Are the droids the new "corrected" size?

The one that comes with Grizz does have the pop up periscope, which the Bar-2D2 also has....

125
Agreed that compared to the value of the previous release we aren't making out great if these are $20, but I still think that's a better deal than getting a Battledroid and STAP for that price....

I saw some pics on Jediinsider and the slideshow hinted that this might be one of a couple vehicles released...   I think...

Edit: The presentation says (emphasis mine) "Saga Vehicles with figure"...

How 'bout some East Coast love, fellas?

The East Coast is too close to Canada so they are treated the same.  :P

Ah that explains why the people at TRU only respond to requests in French.

I'm liking that AT-ST.  How have Kohl's exclusives been priced in the past?  I'm thinking that set should cost about $25-$30, right?

128
I'm going to pass on this for now. I definitely want the Slave One, but everything else is junk to me. Maybe if I can get a good deal.

I'm sure you could sell that Astrodroid to make up some of the cost.

All the GH I have I bought because I like them (OT, PT & EU), but they are all in the toy room my sons (2&4) share.  I think almost all of them are in a big tupperware bin.  I think once I get done redoing my office I'll have some of them on shelves, but they are for the boys to play with really.  My Wife has pointed out that the boys might not understand the distinction between their toys and Daddy's, once I have my office done.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Where to spend the Zombie Apocalypse?

Seeing as I have the kind of luck where I'll be bitten by a Zombie, I now know that Wal-Mart will (paradoxically) be a good source for brains....

My 4 yr old wanted to play with the "horsey".  Close enough.

Sure, blame it on your toddler.  Real classy.

I'm an adult who buys Star Wars toys; for himself.  I'm all class!

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: The Street Date Debate
« on: August 6, 2010, 09:01 AM »
So is today the "street date"?  Was at my local Wally today and they had a spot for the new Vintage, SL and CW, but nada.  They did have three versions of Walmart management discussing the arrangement of the toy isles (really, don't they get a print out that shows them where to put everything?).

So "should" they have had them on the shelf today?

133
Finally found this today, glad I can stop hunting for stuff at K-Mart.  :P

Is that because going to K-Mart is depressing or its nearly impossible to find anytihng in the Toy section?   I'm thinking their stocking method is to shoot items out of one of those t-shirt guns randomly into the toy area...

134
Got my pair of Eopies today!

Welcome to 2009!

Pssh, I never bought anything like this during EP1, so more like 'welcome to 1999'.  :)

Joe Defender / Re: Sales, Discounts, & Stuff
« on: August 5, 2010, 09:11 AM »
I'm not a Joe collector, so I don't venture into this part of the board much.  But I have to share.  I was at my local Wally this morning to see if they put out any of the new Vintage SW.  They looked like they were doing a reset on the whole toy section and had lots of stuff moved over near electronics on "clearance".  They had red stickers on about a half dozen GI Joe figures (they were the brunette in the black body suit and a blonde in urban camo).  They were marked at $9.88.  I'm pretty sure I could have bought these on non-clearance last week for like $6, right?  Oh Wal-Mart.....
