LOL...RS has their annual April Fool's Joke up and it's a cruel one. Holiday Special on Blu-Ray indeed!

Harumph...I would buy that in a heartbeat.

For what it's worth, I have seen reports this vehicle is finally starting to show up stateside, at Target I believe. I have not seen any around here but will keep an eye out as I still need a mintier box upgrade.

That is wise advice....you just never know how these things will turn out long turn. I never saw the Jedi Showdown or Holocron Heist BP's anywhere in stores around here last year. All of a sudden I have seen droves of them at the local TRU the past few months. None of the old red/white stuff should even be shipping, but there ya go.

Never going the scalping route again - lesson learned.

Just found the Barc Speeder w/ Jesse set at my local MN Target. That wasn't even on my radar with how little I've heard about people finding it.

= WINNING

Excellent score! Figures the week I break down and buy this off eBay it starts showing up again.

Picked up a carded Logray last night, along with my first DROIDS figure, a carded Kez Iban.

Got my replacement X-Wing upgrade in the mail, the thing looks sweet.

Where did you find the metalocalypse Toys?
What are they going for now?

eBay...the auction was for $70 I believe but I used the Buy It Now feature to snag them for $85. I think that was a good call as these sets have all but disappeared from eBay and I foresaw the bidding going well over 100 bucks. This is the first set I have seen up for about 6 months or so. A year ago when there were multiples floating around out there I never saw them for less than $60.

I am a huge fan of the show, the music, pretty much everyone involved with that project, so this had been on my list forever. It was a good get - the figures are excellent likenesses for the most part and although they are somewhat lacking in articulation, they display beautifully alongside my Dethklok Kid Robot figures and the two Dethklok statues from the other SDCC.

 ps - just checked and BBTS has this set in stock for $79.99 I believe.

K-Mart has a toy sale going on for the next week or so that allows you to take an additional 20% off any clearance item. This brings the price on their AT-AT down to $60. The store next to my office had at least 3. Might be worht checking into...

I am holding out for $12.50, or whatever that ridiculous price Target had going at one point.  ;D

Funny, that is the same episode that features MY all-time favorite Foghorn Leghorn line:

"It's sody-pop...watch it fizz!"

At this point I'm hoping the TCW line ends with the show in two years. Call it a day for the animated style and let me retire in peace.  ;D

If they want to recycle those figures into a more realistic style, go for it. But only if the animated line is given a proper end.

With me, it's not about money, it's about space. And my wife.  ::)

Speaking of tie-ins to it, I even thought it would've been far cooler had the "seismic tanks" from the Mace episode turned up as the "secret weapon" that Ahsoka and Barriss Offee take out, rather than just slow moving tanks that had mortars on the back of them...  Talk about underwhelming.  Big tanks are just weapons.  Not really super weapons.  The seismic tank was a game changer. ;D

The floating hammer? I always thought that was utterly ludicrous. Even a SW cartoon writer had to have known the physics behind that idea was preposterous. At least the super tanks were plausible.

Durge was incredibly awesome though.

Maybe this will be the year I bite the bullet and go all-out on the Droids/Ewoks lines. 

Damn, they got me. I bit the bullet and decided to go for a carded EWOKS collection. I'm halfway there after this weekend. Still debating a loose/carded DROIDS collection. Most of them are still fairly affordable, but it has to be all or nothing...eesh.

I also finally tracked down the SDCC exclusive Metalocalypse figures...these have all but disappeared even from eBay.

Have there been any more sightings of this set? I was thinking about putting in an order for him at EE - paying $18.99 for him is better than not having him at all...  :-\

Nope, this thing is totally MIA, no one outside of Canada has seen any for weeks if not months now. I do not think they will carry it forward with any of the new waves either. I have been waiting forever for it to come back into stock at EE, BBTS, etc but they cannot seem to restock it anymore.

I finally gave up this weekend and bought a ridiculously overpriced one off eBay. I have been resisting this but I just don't see myself ever finding this and I am tired of looking.
