The Vintage Collection / Re: Recent Vintage Collection Purchases

I think there are plenty of people who haven't had the chance to get these figures yet.  After all there are about a dozen WM for every TRU.  I'd be willing to guess that TRU represents something less than 20% of the total US sales of Vintage (WM~40%, Target~30%, everything else ~10%).  Even if those percents are off Hasbro has made it clear in the Q&As that WM and Target sell far more than TRU.

Went to my local TRU today and they didn't have the new Vintage figures out; not even peg tags for them.  They had Legacy, old & new Saga Legends and old & new TCW.  So atleast some of the stores are sticking with the street date.

Awesome.  That's a great collection of comic packs.  How come those didn't come out in stores and instead we got any of a dozen sets that frankly were nowhere near as exciting?  $15 per plus shipping is a bit steep for me right now, but hopefully I'll be able to get a couple.

Wait, does that mean it should have read 661$ ?

Interesting the Minnesota typically rates fairly highly regardless of which particular list you look at though...

That's what happens when your effective tax rate is 60% - you get the best parks, best schools, best arts, etc.  You just don't have any money left to spend on those things  :'(

Not always...

I think it is the same exact ex-walmart employees that personally stomp on each box when they put the shipping label on it.

The labeller is foot operated....

Yahoo has one of those lists every other week, except they look at slightly different characteristics week to week.  The one a few weeks back listed the Capital District in NY in the top ten places to raise a family, but its not even on the list for top places to live....

Interesting the Minnesota typically rates fairly highly regardless of which particular list you look at though...

1) Rebel Fleet Trooper (Ultimate Resculpt)
2) R5-A7
3) R5-X2
4) MeruMeru
5) Padme Amidala (Lake Retreat)
6) Lumat/Wompus 2 Pack
7) Y-Wing Pilot (Grey Leader)
8) Death Squad Commander (Vintage Deco)
9) Wedge Antilles (Snowspeeder)
10) Lt Sheckil
11) Captain Fordo (Movie Style)
12) Barriss Offee

Whooo hooo!  I finished in second.  I think I was in 6th at the start of, and part way through, the knock out stage.

I thought the Spain-Netherlands game was pretty good.  Though I was shocked by how many chances each team threw away (either by dribbling too much, flubbing shots, etc.).  I'm glad Spain won, they seemed to create more chances on their own.  As for the Dutch, boy they seem to play a style that is hard to like.  The seemed to flop an inordinate number of times, committed more than a couple aggregious fouls (De Jong's kick to the chest?), and seemed to lack a level of chemistry, particularly on defense (lots of finger pointing...).

It probably varies by state, but I can't imagine most states consider contracting an appropriate occupation for children.  You might double check on CA law, but per this Child Labor Pamphlet children under 16 can't be a "student learner or apprentice" in Occupations involved in the operation of power-driven woodworking machines and Occupations involved in the operations of circular saws, band saws, and guillotine shears .

Not sure what type of work they were doing, but it might not be legal from him to take his son on help on job sites.

Not that you should threaten the contractor, maybe just point out that it would be unfortunate if the state was notified.

I think I'm like a lot of people, when I heard TRU was putting them out, I went to take a look but didn't find anything.  Now that they aren't doing their little sale, there isn't a lot of reason to go back until I know they are out, especially given the their price is likely to be a dollar or two more than Walmart and Target.

I'm glad new figures are coming out, it makes for a much more interesting time to be a fan/collector.  But its pretty much the same reaction as to when Tunghori (sp?) has new figures on eBay.  Interesting, but I'm not going to overpay for something I'll probably see in a few weeks anyway.

Wow, that shakes things up a bit.

My TRU didn't have any of the new figures, but remaining SL and Clone Wars figs they had were about $7.50 (might have been $7.49).  I was hoping to take advantage of the BOGO 50% deal, but they really didn't have anything...

Ah, but you have to get them before they make it big (and earn all their money) so that you get half.  So really Rob you should be trolling college golf tournaments....

Booo.  The new size might be more accurate when R2 is next to Luke, but then again I haven't heard people begging for a more accurately sized R2, they wanted a better sculpt, or a new paint job, but height isn't a problem that I've ever heard mentioned.

Look at the cover dammit!  Tell me that's not all kinds of awesome! Crimson Jack and Han are so bad-ass they don't need any stinkin' space suits to protect them!

Or pants apparently.
