The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Beasts: Resculpts, Repacks & New
« on: November 3, 2011, 12:30 PM »
I wanted an Acklay, but heard the toy wasn't very good.

Whatever happened to the Mustafar Lava Flea? (Coming in 2014!  :( )

Hasbro seems to avoid beasts in their deluxe assortments, no matter how interesting a menagerie of monsters appear in CW, none see toy form. Beasts  are destined for exclusive status only.

Movie Heroes will make the Vintage soar then.

I've bought more battle droid 2-packs and Snowtroopers than I have any vintage carded army builder.

I know we are cheated out of a tan droid 2-pack because Hasbro doesn't do running changes except when they do.

I put no stock in the rumors (remember the non-Stan rumor list with Clone Wars stuff like Captain Tarkin?), and not even that much  in Hasbro's Q&A responses...because plans change. Look at how much got 2011 stuff shoved into 2012.

EU figures are either scarce (Scorch, Revan, Malek, Fordo, concept art, some comic packs, some Force Unleashed) or flop (90's SOTE, many comic packs, some Force Unleashed).

Though, it's hard to tell these days.

I didn't buy anything but at TRU, some woman shopping for her grandson asked me what a Mace Windu was, so I loaded her cart with Wilrow Hoods.

THAT'S GONNA BE A HAPPY KID COME CHRISTMAS!  ;D

1236
Yeah, there's never anything worth getting. Almost got saga legends, but buying the same stuff over and over when you can't find new stuff you want isn't collecting, just army building out of frustation.  :-\

Star Wars figures 2 for $12.99 at Toys R Us today (and yesterday), they show vintage in the ad.

Krell's demeanor seems un-Jedi like. And why did Palpatine recall Anakin?

I gotta wonder if Krell won't get fragged by the 501st.

Umbarans need breathing apparatus but the clones, Anakin and Krell don't?

Kenobi's first appearance in awhile.

Watching the preview, the first CW AT-RT drivers appear (as a sort of ARF trooper/AT-RT driver hybrid) and in 501st deco, too.

Or Jabba Glob.

It really isn't that serious guys. Buy the damn thing or don't, to suggest swapping is insanity.

I thought it was clear that I was kidding (stealing/fraud is a crime). Most collectors will grin and bear (buy) it, or wait it out (sale) or customize an extra Han-Taun.


1243
Solution. Buy both sets. Swap Han's Taun-Taun for Luke's, and return "Luke's Taun Taun" to the store. Parents/kids won't notice a cracked tusk, and collectors who get the wrong beast will merely return it  to the store.

Okay, that's wrong... ;) But it really wouldn't surprise me if this hasn't happened already.

$5 coupon good for 2 days, they don't want anyone using it on vintage.

Eventually, maybe, i was exagerrating with "never",  but in a line that's been going 16 years...eventually might be 2 years, might be 7. Over 10 years after episode 1's release, and we are getting Ben Quadrinaros and others. Sure, the movie was the least popular...but still...some 12 years.
