The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Celebration V
« on: August 12, 2010, 09:45 AM »
Is it too early to be disappointed already?  ;D

I'll be curious to see more photos from today, but the initial galleries on Sandtroopers last night were totally underwhelming. All I saw was crap that has been leaked for months...the Carnie/Fixer comic pack, Vintage Wave 2, Slave 1, etc.

I know there will likely be more out than what has been pictured to this point, so I am cautiously optimistic, but bracing for a letdown.

Where's the HMP? Cato Parasitti? Undead Geonosian?

I guess the best hope is that the slideshow gets updated from SDCC and they actually show off some stuff from next year.

I noticed this morning the link I found is no longer active so TRU.com pulled it. Maybe Hasbro does read these threads...

That is a low-down, rotten, dirty trick. Guess I won't be getting my email alerting me when this item comes in stock now.  ::)

I'm sorry, but anything they have for sale in a frigging store should be on the damn website too.

Is Hasbro going to hunt down all the people who already bought this and walked out with it? L-A-M-E

I already saw the photos of this in the display case at CV (courtesy Sandtroopers). This is the worst kept secret EVER.

Hit three different Walmarts today and finally saw the Jabba at the last location. $38.88 here looks like. They had a good number on the shelves. Oola is one butt-ugly sculpt IMO.

Great to see the local stores starting to catch up though...

This is up now on TRU.com, albeit under the wrong description:

http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4020327

Yep, not a Transformer, guys. Price point and item # are hopefully accurate though.

Awesome, totally remember that now, very cool.

Good points re: The Sith too. I just think it's getting crowded.


3201
That's the item on the web page. The box size and weight are correct. This sucker seems to be as heavy as the AT-AT.

Awesome, so for whoever's wondering, the Item # is 506739, and the UPC is 653569566557.

I'll be annoying our local TRU's about this for weeks, I can see it now.

Thanks!

(Why do they insist on calling it a vintage action figure vehicle though? It's 100% Clone Wars, baby.)

Are there any better pictures of this thing? I have no recollection of it from the Tartakovsky series.

I'm game for any new ships, but I really wish they would re-release the Solar Sailor and Geonosian fighter for the TCW line.

Ventress is a complete anachronism at this point. With Dooku, Palps, and Anakin in the on-deck circle, there is no room for any more Sith. Rule of 2 and all that. Hope they give her a fitting exit this season.

Found the new Slave I / Jedi Starfighter battle pack at TRU tonight for $99. It comes with five figures.

FTW!

You magnificent bastard, I salute you!  ;D

Well done, that is completely awesome. Was this just some insane fluke, or did they actually have shelf space and a tag set up for it?

My buddy at TRU indicated there is a coming reset where the TCW stuff is due to be moved up to the front of the store, similar to last year at this time. Maybe they will actually be able to coordinate that with their hot new exclusive? (Yeah, I doubt it too)

A couple of Walmarts have started to reset around here. No Jabbas, but one thing of interest is the General Grievous Force Battler. For some reason I haven't seen this guy anywhere else yet. It doesn't appear to be any kind of exclusive though, and it's $2 more expensive than the Battlers at Target, so I am thinking I should wait.

Still no sighting of TCW Fall Wave 2 or the K-Mart Exclusive pack.  :(

I am not an opener so I retain all mine in their original packaging. The only vehicle I have ever bought an extra of to open was the Octuptarra Droid. I did keep that diorama and it is currently diplaying all my loose modern figures.

Hmmm, I hope they correct those dioramas...I don't want to have to search all over for boxes that are properly oriented.

I'll be buying all, but the Swamp Speeder and AT-AP may require openers as well. Those are awesome.

The card at SDCC for the AT-AP had a street date of 8/29 but I'm guessing it will be September or OCtober before we actually see these. Hope it's sooner though.

You know, Ventress has LONG since outlived her usefulness. Every second they extend her life is a further affront to the Sith Rule of 2. The Galaxy just ain't big enough for her, Palps, and Dooku. I thought they were all about the Master and Apprentice?

Tartakovsky had the right idea with her all along - a quick exit.

3208
Our local TRU had a sale going on the AT-AT today...$10 off, so $89.99 total. Cheapest I have seen it yet.

3209
I saw a case of the new Vintage stuff last night at K-Mart for the first time Jesse, they were priced at $8.49 each. That puts them right in between Target and TRU...no idea about Walmart as all the ones around here have yet to fully reset.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Big Items of the Future!
« on: August 7, 2010, 08:25 PM »
I'm almost certain the reason Hasbro balked at the Twilight was because of the association with the super-popular vampire movies.  Perhaps in a few years when the movies are all done and gone we'll get that vehicle.

That's actually more plausible to me than any of the other lame excuses they have given.

Here's hoping for a renewed presence in Season 3.
