Power of the Force 2 / Re: POTF2 Recent Purchases
« on: August 15, 2011, 10:29 PM »
I got a POTF stormtrooper for 25 cents couple months back and this weekend an R2 for 5 cents at yard sales. Lando for 50 cents, had his cape and I found a Dewback Sandtrooper rifle for him in the box he was in.

Also, an X-Wing missing the canopy and 3 laser guns for a buck. That and the landspeeder seem to be most common used finds as far as yard sale and flea markets go.

I found a Boil and AT-RT at Target (where had it been during clearance?) , it rang up 0.00 so I walked out of the store with it. Okay, I didn't try to buy it. Who knows could've been clearance, but probably not at this point.

Any way we can make a cheap buck on your nostalgia is possible. Like same old vehicles in new but old looking boxes.

Anyway, they've been missing the boat.
-Kenner colors Boba Fett (3 3/4" or 12")
-TIE Pliot with grey gloves and boots
-Bespin Luke in fresh clean khaki
-Hoth Han with deep blue jacket and khaki pants
-Rebel Hoth Trooper painted like vintage trooper
-Light skinned version of dark skinned Bespin Guard
-Obi-Wan in almost all brown clothing.
-2-1B vintage colors
-Hoth Rebel with light colored pants and gloves
-Leia with more reddish hair and a more yellow vest
-X-Wing Luke with dark tinted goggles, oranger suit
-Han Solo with screen-accurate black pants (that's a joke...we all know his pants were brown blue)
-Needa in black uniform, since he's not called Needa anyway.
-30th ANH Vader instead of one of the same Vaders they keep putting in everything
-"Death Squad Commander"
-Bossk in more yellow suit with browner skin
-Snowtrooper all white with only black details
-At-At Driver with unpainted (grey) boots
-Stormtrooper with head fuzed to body...okay...maybe not.  :P

Thankfully they did none of that and saved me lots of $$$$  ;)

When Lucas decides to turn the live action series into another trilogy everything will be just fine  ;D

I bet he'd sooner remake A NEW HOPE. It'll happen within ten's is our destiny...

Blackout was part of the sale?  He didn't scan under the price checker as such. Crud. That explains why they were all gone today. Of course, my local TRU showed no signs of restocking anything. What a worthless store.

Saturday garage saling, I found a Clone Wars R2-D2, missing a front panel, for 5 well as a POTF2 R2 and a Saga Ewok Throne (sans one pole) for 5 cents each. Also, a POTF X-wing missing canopy and three cannons for a buck.  (Sounds great, but i was out garage saling for about 5 hours!).

It's crazy to think that SW has been getting pretty consistent media support for 14+ years now... makes you wonder how much appetite there will be for it (on Hasbro's side and/or retail's side) once the movies/cartoons finally die out?  Unless LFL can get that live-action TV show up and running, it wouldn't surprise me if SW as a whole only gets 1-2 years past the cartoon's end and then Hasbro greatly reduces the line (or dumps it completely) to focus on the "get rich quick" summer movie schemes.

I think Lucasfilm will come up with some other media, they are, of course, more addicted to making money off of the Star Wars franchise than Hasbro.

Would not surprise me if the live action TV show turns into another CGI toon.

"the new designs will be original"

Great. I hate when new designs are unoriginal.  ;)

"Not currently planned"

Why plan much ahead when inevitably 30% of your new stuff gets pushed into the next year anyway?

It seems that that no matter how many tries you make, they put Saga Legends ROTS Obi-Wan in your cart. Could be a place holder for a random figure, but really...I bet they just have that many Obi-Wans in stock.  :P

Not sure where to put this, but, I found 2-packs of battlepacks at Costco today for $25 tonight.  Mostly Clone Wars packs.  Worth taking a look!

I'll do summer when the Costco is built.  :(

Actually there's one north some 20 miles, but I don't have  a membership.

That explains why I didn't see the Rebel Tech and Transport today.

I got vintage AOTC  Clone Trooper (only one left) and a Snowtrooper for TRU's 2 for $10.99 special. In typical TRU fashion, I find one figure then debate for 30 minutes on which other figure I'm gonna settle for. I even looked at Marvel, Thor, Captain America, GI JOE and  even Spiderman, and those selections were as dismal...actually Marvel Universe was Winter Soldier was the only thing left.

There's some 3 3/4" $40 generic army transport plane out on their army/pirate/western/police/fire area. It's sad when the most interesting new item at the store is in the generic section.

I reminded myself why I hadn't been there in over 2 months. To try again later in the week or let it go...I don't know. (When do they restock?)

... the only straight repack figure seems to be the space suit Anakin, but supposedly that figure is different from the original.

It is a bit different. I compared the battle pack and single carded Space Anakin at Target today.

1. Battle Pack Anakin has noticably lighter blue eyes.
2. Different colored shoulder armor, battle pack has dark gray, single pack has a "gun metal" metallic finish.
3. Space helmet rim is a same color as Battle Pack Space Ahsoka, single carded helmet rim is white.

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 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?
