The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / The Street Date Debate
« on: June 29, 2010, 10:38 PM »
I was talking to a friend of mine who works at TRU at lunchtime and he said they actually got cases of the new vintage stuff on the truck today. He checked it out but they could not put them out until August 6th like the box indicates. Looks like they mean business with this street date stuff.

Still, at least it's shipping to the brick and mortars...I wonder when Target and K-Mart are due for theirs?

yes.

Yes!

YES!!!

 ;D ;D ;D

I loves me some Robonino! He came out so great! They definitely did not skimp on accessories.

Here's hoping we see this before Christmas, I need at least 3 for my Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil montage.

This is good to know, because I actually was considering sending away for a 3rd before the deadline tomorrow, but I guess there's no point now.

I'm hoping the Fall Mailaway is equally appealing...I have a feeling it is going to be that Sergeant Bric we've been hearing about.

I always thought this was as simple as the shipping route from Asia. 


Thanks, that one actually makes the most sense out of what I've heard so far.

I was just trying to ask a question more than voice a complaint. I'm sincerely curious.

Tough going trying to close out my vintage collection...I'm losing more auctions than I'm winning lately. I did persevere earlier tonight and come out on top in an auction for the vintage Sand Skimmer. VERY psyched about this one. They seem to be becoming somewhat elusive the past few months, fewer and fewer non-carded in circulation it seems. Pretty minty loose version I snagged, for a decent price as well. This just leaves the Imperial Sniper as the lone mini-rig on my list of remaining items to score.  :D

Count me in the crowd that thinks this looks amazing! Really good value too, 2 new ships, plus 3 new figures. In the pics it really dwarfs the Christophsis set...impressive.

I can't help but wonder about the price point - under $100 hopefully?

3292
After realizing I could get free shipping with any order over $49, I went back and canceled my original order and re-submitted it with the new Clone Interceptor Tank thrown in to put me over the threshold. $60.83 total for 4 new TCW figures, plus the Vehicle. I figure that's probably not much more than I'd be likely to pay in the store anyway. Plus no brutal six week wait.  ;D

Super psyched about this, hope some of the rest of you guys get in on the action too!

Great news!

TRU.com has this whole wave in stock NOW and available for immediate shipping! ($9.99 a pop)

They also have the Snowspeeder and Bespin Cloud Car, also in stock as of this writing.

I just placed an order myself, I just couldn't hold out any longer.  ;D

WOOT!

TRU.com has this entire wave in stock and available for sale online - $7.49 each!!! (Plus shipping and handling)

I just ordered all 4 new figures - Grievous, Pre, Aurra, and Mando Guard for $36.46 total.

All are still in stock as of this writing.

They also had the new Interceptor Tank, plus a few of the new Deluxe Vehicle Figure packs, but most of those were sold out already.

If anyone out there is as pumped as I am to get these, might be worth a look!  :)

Hmm, would it be impossible for them to release everything all at once internationally?

No offense or anything, but do you go to counseling for collecting SW stuff?  You seem awfully high strung here at JD.

Why do you feel the need to call me out bro? Just put me on "Ignore" if you find my personality tiresome. Life is too short for you to be worrying about what goes on inside my head.

I just love toys. I am excited for the relaunch. Anything I collect, I collect with passion.

Looks like these have hit Toys R Us here in the UK, with a little luck I'll get my mitts on some of them tonight after work.

I saw the photos this morning. How can you even work knowing that stuff is out on the shelves? I would be going batsh*t crazy thinking about that all day.

I'm going to be a complete wreck by the time we get to August.

Can someone explain why Hasbro doesn't release stuff in the US FIRST, and the rest of the world afterwards?

They're a US company, their biggest market share is probably right here, I just don't get it.

I understand the stuff is manufactured abroad, but they're not cranking them off the assembly line in the UK or Australia. Why does those countries rate ahead of us?

I assume they must have a good reason, but I'm curious what it is.

And I know this doesn't apply to everything in the various lines, but particularly the figures always seem to hit abroad first, exclusives aside.

Posted this in the other thread, but in case anyone missed it, I found 2 full cases from this wave on the pegs at TRU today during lunch. You could have knocked me over with a Pilf Mukmuk.

No idea if this was an aberration or whether these might start showing up again, but I had no inkling these would be back around, so it was a great relief. I grabbed a Hondo and Aayla for openers immediately.

Might be worth checking around if any of you guys still need these.

Surprise, surpise!

I strolled into TRU at lunch today on the offchance they might have anything interesting, and what did I happen to find but TWO full cases of TCW figures from the Hondo/Aayla wave earlier this year. My eyes just about popped out of my head!

I scored BOTH Hondo AND Aayla for openers, which I have wanted forever it seems like. I was on the verge of caving and going the eBay route but I'm so glad I didn't now.

Now all I need is another Magnaguard redux for openers and I am totally and completely 100% done til the relaunch.  ;D
