The Vintage Collection / Re: What Would Be "The End" For You?
« on: April 24, 2011, 12:54 AM »
I was thinking about this, the vintage collection has gotten me to buy Clone Wars and even Legends more than I had in prior years.  Part of that is the improved articulation in some Clone Wars releases, and some recent additions to Legends, but price and availability are factors.

The Vintage Collection had gotten MOC and nostalgic types to buy more figures, probably. But the same old situations exist, stores are still ordering more Legends and Clone Wars. But now when those go on sale or get reduced, the collector-aimed series (Vintage) does not, which increases its "peg warmers", and makes restocking of that series slower. Instead of Pons Limbics and Brea Organas hanging around on pegs, we have ball-jointed hipped Sandtroopers and ROTS Clone Troopers, which seemed unthinkable 2 years ago. (We also have 4-LOM, which doesn't surprised me, as he bombed back in 2007...enough to make it to clearance at some stores.)

Some people are saying "fold Legends into Vintage". Nah, I say fold vintage into Legends. Then I get a figure stand, a keen card game card and extra weapons for less money!   ;)

Always try to resolve the issue first, of course.

I've never ordered from Tunghori, but my experience with a similar Hong Kong seller was getting a replacement free. One of the Shadow Stromtroopers (the Force Unleashed version) I ordered had a tear through the right ankle by the joint. I sent a picture of it, and he mailed a replacement. Though the replacement didn't have a blaser and  it, like half of the other figures I'd gotten, had one leg longer than the other. But I didn't pay that much to begin with. I almost never win those auctions because I'm reluctant to invest too much money based on a stock photo.

One time I got a scout trooper with two right lower legs, but didn't notice until after I left feedback.  :-[

Packaged shots of New Clone War Deluxe Figures are pictured at No suprises, it's stuff all seen at Toy Fair,  some of the all new vehicles.

Grievous's mini wheel bike is merely "Attack Cycle". Not the most inspired named, but hey, this is Star Wars.  ;)

thanks for the info Phruby!  $40 bucks =  :-X  but I am pretty sure I am all in on the droid set - still debating the other one....

What you don't want to pay $10 each for those, especially the repacked Vader, Fett and C-3PO?

At least they are overall less overpriced than, say the GI JOE fan club exclusives.

All The Clone Wars (current t.v. series)

1. Coruscant Police Droid (they made the Mandalorian cop that appeared just as often, maybe less).
2. Ziro the Hutt
3. Greedo (probably the only CW Rodian we'll get!  :()
4. Nemoidian Soldier
5. Jedi Halsey
6. Quarren Warrior (cheating because their episode hasn't aired)
7. Nute Gunray
8. Garnac, the Trandoshan Clan Leader (But any of them are good)
9. Demolition Droid (as long as they aren't flimsy)
10. Republic Cruiser Clone Naval Officer

My local Target had a sign out on the shelves tonight in the SW section stating something to the effect that they were out of the Arena sets so as a raincheck they were offering Clone Wars vehicles at half price - $13.49!

All they had was a Hyena Bomber and an AAT repaint, but dang that's a good price.

Nice. I scored the Target TIE Fighter (small wing) last year at a similar offer since they were out of the remote Hailfire Droid that was on sale. (Some chucklehead is trying to sell that TIE on ebay for $100!)

I haven't been around a TRU in a bit but people reported getting pretty much all BP's for 50% off I thought? 

TRU online only has the Legacy packs 50%, I checked that last sunday and assume in-store was the same way.

TRU sale seems to be 50% Legacy packaged Battle Packs, they just refused to make their ad clear this time. If there's a price scanner, I usually check items on it before I head to the register.

Wal-Mart exclusives, perhaps that's why no mention. Or did they mention exclusives? I can't remember. They are rounding out the second Geonosis Battle, though so much of it is exclusives.

What episode is the AT-RT from?

Not shown in their ads, but Target has the Geonosis Arena 2 packs for $6.99! (Yes, technically those Legacy releases...)

I actually found Series 2 sets, too. Where had they been for these past months?

Target this week has select Star Wars (Thor and Iron Man) figures $6.99 each. ARF Trooper is shown, which says to me "NOT VINTAGE", but  who knows.

K-Mart has $6.99 figures, the ad shows Legacy carded Boba Fett  ???

TRU has 50% off Battle packs (looks like it's just the Legacy ones again) and the Y-Wings, as per usual they show what you wish they'd have (the hoth speeder bikes and the Imperial ARC 170), but will not have.

Meijer has Thor figures for $5 this week. Take that, Target.

Latest rumors from Rebelscum and Jedi Temple Archives
The Clone Wars
Based on the popular TV show, here are a pair of exclusives from the show:

Commander Blackout Figure

Assassin Spider Droid & Clone

The Vintage Collection...(possibly the "Shadows of the Dark Side")

Video Game 5 Figure Pack

Trench Run Scene Pack

Basic figures:

CW70: Clone Trooper Corporal Comet
CW71: Chewbacca
CW72: Sugi
CW73: ARC Trooper Commander (Yellow)
CW74: Tarfful

Delta Squad (Boss, Fixer, Scorch, Sev)
Maridun Defense (Commander Bly, Lok Durd, Tee Watt Kaa, Wag Too)
Kamino Leaders (Commander Colt, ARC Trooper Commander, ARC Trooper Captain, ARC Trooper Lieutenant)
Vassek Infiltration (Kit Fisto, Commander Fil - other figures unknown)

Batle pack list sounds the most like fanboy daydreaming. Revisit a season one 2-parter with 3 all new figures, and no main characters included?

I'm tempted to go looking for these, but I'm afraid I'll find one.  :P (Space is an issue.)

Went to TRU today, they actually had a vintage stormtrooper, but with the greening helmet it's not even worth the half-off price of $5 to me. Their Clone Wars and legends selection wasn't much better. Even with the sale the Endor 4 packs come out to like $6 a figure, good, but not great (as in, if the sets were the $25 they should be, with one at half off).

But clearance is included in the sale. Got an Evolutions Rebels Pilots II and an Amidala set for around $24. 

TOY R US sale tommorrow 15th and Saturday the 16th only, buy one, get one half off all Hasbro Star Wars vehicles, figures and role-play items.
