TV-9D9 / Re: The Clone Wars - Season Six?
« on: September 27, 2014, 09:25 AM »
Not sure about the historical precedent but those new Clone Wars episodes have already been prelisted for sale as a set overseas, so it is all but certain they will be released over here as well. I would guess sometime in the near future, this Fall.

I guess I need to check out that Ventress novel now too, although I did not care much for the Darth Maul Son of Dathomir treatment.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: $5 Vintage Collection @ Five Below
« on: September 27, 2014, 09:21 AM »
So yeah, this is apparently happening again. I saw a few new figures at my local 5 Below yesterday - Barriss, Vader, Hoth Luke, etc. Was hoping to see Nom Anor but no dice.

Still waiting on Shae Vizsla and Starkiller to show up here...

Has anyone seen the Predator figs at retail yet? I know they are ready because eBay sellers have them up...

I picked up all 3 last night too. The boxes are staring at me right now begging to be opened!

I saw the 31" Inquisitor for the first time yesterday too but couldn't pull the trigger. I know it's only a matter of time though...

LOL, it only took a week. Picked up this guy last night along with the 3 new Rebels ships and took advantage of their BOGO 40% off sale. Nice timing on that!

Caved and picked up my second Biker Scout Deluxe set from a Target that had apparently restocked these recently. (!) I wasn't in a hurry to nab #2 but he had a perfect visor and crisp paint job so I figured it was too hard to pass up.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels - 5 POA Animated Style Figs
« on: September 24, 2014, 11:17 AM »
Yeah, I'm all in for sure...the Clone Wars line was the pinnacle of my SW collecting enthusiasm, so the Rebels stuff will help to fill that void. I'd prefer not to have 5POA figures but at the end of the day they're sitting on a shelf anyway so not the end of the world to me.

I'm not really a fan of the cartoony Stormtroopers but the other characters all look great. And the ships look fantastic!

Will be curious to see how long this line (and show for that matter) last.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Prototype Boba Fett (Walgreens)
« on: September 22, 2014, 06:10 PM »
I'm thrilled Walgreen's got in the game because otherwise it would be months from now that we'd be seeing these figures. (Our area has never even gotten a single Clone Trooper or Anakin on the pegs.) It was a brilliant move on their part too because they've essentially got five exclusives figures going for them now until other stores catch up. Which will probably be awhile judging by how things are going.

It is about impossible now to find a Proto Fett around here, plenty of Vaders and even some Sandtroopers. I've only seen Chewie once.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Recent purchases

I was lucky enough to score the last Jedi Turbo Speeder from the ghetto Ollie's here, glad I made it out alive. I agree this one seems to be the hardest to find. I pretty much have everything I want now (after having bought six of these things over the past week) unless someone discovers a Droid Tri-Fighter or Ahsoka's Starfighter in some odd assortment.

I don't see anything to get bent out of shape about with these things showing up, just seems like a nice surprise to me. I still hope to one day see a Shae Vizsla or Starkiller pop up again on a toy shelf.

Awesome, thanks Jesse that is good to know. I will keep that in mind for my next run.

Luckily, we do have an Ollie's here and they have gotten a lot of money from me the past few days. This is just like a gift from the gods, a second chance at some of these things. (Always wanted a cheap opener of a Vulture Droid or Hyena Bomber and now I have both :))

I'd still like a Jedi Turbo Speeder, hoping to find one of these next.

I hate to post it in the SotDS area, since these are new scores, but I found more of the Value-Pack Vehicle sets at my more local K-Mart tonight.  Two cases worth to be exact.  I also got to see the cases fresh to see how these are coming, and it's really random.  One case had two of the same set, while another case had 3 completely different sets.

All sets share the same UPC too, so individual searching for specific ships is pretty much not gonna happen.

I'd also point out that last night's K-Mart had two sets that tonight's K-Mart didn't have at all, and both cases from last night's find were packed with 3 unique sets.  It's a crap shoot is the point.

Likewise I just got a report from a friend at an Ollie's outlet...  I hate to even mention Ollies because they're such a local thing, it's pointless to say much about it.  HOwever they have these stacked higher than an average man stands, so yeah...  They're getting a ****load more at the slightly higher $19.99 pricepoint to K-Mart's $14.99.  They've also got the AT-AP/Swamp Speeder set, and Mando Transport/Ani Fighter set which I've yet to see at a K-Mart.

Yet again given the randomness of the cases, I imagine it's quite likely you'd find those two sets at a K-Mart on any given trip just because.

IF (and it's a huge if, because you probably don't) you have an Ollie's, I'd go now.  K-Mart too, but Ollie's has stuff just in huge piles.  K-Mart I assume is only shipping a couple cases at a time to any given store.  Ollie's is a disaster (think Big Lots, but far worse) so they can dump 'em all out and it would only improve the aisle.

Speaking of Ollie's, don't be too jealous of me for reporting this.  I have 3, and they're all an hour away and I've yet to go to one because they're an hour away.  They're great if you have one near by and you KNOW something's hitting there (like this), but at an hour from me and all out in the middle of nowhere (further than I already am) 3 different directions, I can't really get to them easily at this point.

It's a cool dealio, but K-Mart is my jam on this one.

I'm just jealous you are finding these at K-Marts at all. I spent my whole day off driving around to all the BFE K-Marts around here and none of them had ANY of these. Are they stocking them in the SW aisle, clearance aisle, or some other random location near the toy section?

I did a massive toy run and saw a few of these today...but only at a K-Mart and a TRU in BFE. Oh, and one Barnes and Noble but they wanted $50 for it so whateves.
