The Vintage Collection / Re: 2011 "Vintage" Collection Wave 7
« on: August 5, 2011, 04:46 PM »
found remnants of this wave last night
all that were left were Bom and Han
whats wrong with people?

Sounds like what a scalper  would leave behind...so the word "people" doesn't apply.

Why would a scalper leave Bom? Cantina aliens are rarely hot at the time of their release, only later do some appreciate on the aftermarket.

Not sure about Logray...maybe Wicket's scarcity made Ewoks resale gold.

The Blu-Ray sets are all old figures. No new tooling needed at all.  TFU pack is 4 (?) new figures.  5 figures for 39.99 is still only 8.00 a figure, cheaper than TVC.

Then I guess the Revenge of the Jedi Carded figures will be cheaper than previous Vintage because they are all old figures.

I don't buy the tooling costs argument. Not from a huge company like Hasbro. Not even for an exclusive.

Looks like "Wave 6 Revision" according to Entertainment Earth. 2 flamethrower clones seems right.

How long have they been sitting on these?

The Blu-Ray sets with 4 figures are $24.99...so that fifth figure is worth $15 it seems...at least in TRU's mind.

I never saw a trace of that wave.

Is anyone else seeing Targets with Flame Thrower Clones, Pre Vizlas and Embos? Where did these guys come from?

Found Castas, Grievous bike and Droid speeder at Target today. All scanned as $16.99. I'd known that if I'd read recent posts here.  :P  But the Clone Scout Speeders were still scanning as $4.24. So I got two more of those. I was tempted to get Castas, but that might have raised suspicions and the paint wasn't so great on the only one they had.

I found the Scout Speeder and Y-Wing for the clearance price, but I had to do the right thing and inform the store of their mistake. The manager thanked and said he'd call corporate to get this corrected nation wide.  ;D

Nah...I'm kidding.  >:D

It's funny the Bane and Anakin repacks scan at full price.

Need to check the other local Target stores ASAP.

This is only kinda related to the topic, but today I found an Episode 1 Sneak Preview boxed STAP at a resale shop for $2. Great find. Funny thing was the box had the original store sticker price on it. FAO SCHWARZ $18.99...which, typical of that outlet, was high back then...now it's almost the standard retail price for "deluxe".  :P

Got mine...mailer box and package were kinda squashed...but I'm gonna open him anyway...unless he's going for a lot.  ;)

  But I left behind all 6 of the blue ray sets and the $80 shittle

We'll pretend that was a typo.  ;)

Jar Jar was useless to the movie. Oh, he leads the two Jedi to the Gungans, who loan them a sub to go to Theed.  Most of which was filler, really. It was like the KING KONG remake taking 45 minutes to get to Skull Island...we all know they are going to  get to the island...they have to,  or no big gorilla.

Qui-Gon Jin may have been an unneeded character. Make a full fledged knight Obi-Wan find Anakin, and thus he bears the great blame for the Republic's fall. Proof in point how unneeded two Jedi were....while Qui-Gon is in Mos Espa....Obi-Wan does almost nothing for all that time. It would be like having ANH character who stays on the Falcon the whole time they are on the Death Star.

This all belongs in another forum.  ;)

Do Anakin and Dooku have the new headsculpts from the 2010 Target Geonosis sets? I can't tell for sure but if so I might have to pick that set up.

Dooku, I'm almost positive does. Not sure about Anakin.

This Death  Star blew up...in fandom's faces.

Hasbro, the more you tighten your exclusives grip, the more collectors will slip through your fingers.

Not a lot of faith in Droid Capture pack, Hasbro? Defend Kamino gets slightly shorted, too.

Puck from Alpha Flight?

Does anyone younger than 40 know who that is?!?!

Have they made any other figures from that comic? I loved that.

Guardian.
