Ok snag what you can at retail.  Rumor has it that they are holding all retaliation stuff that is not currently in Retailer's hands until Next Year.

So it is currently in my mind a worst case scenario.  We the collectors (and the speculators) will snag it all up pretty quick, then there will be empty pegs(or no pegs) until January.   Surely they could re-release some stuff, but they are/were geared for Movie stuff, I doubt they can un-tool fast enough to hit anything before 4th Q and then they would need to re-un-re-tool to support the movie line again. 

Makes the Club Convention figures and their Subscription figures look better by default of not having any other Joes available.

Who would have thought that for the 2nd half of 2012 the highlight of Joeverse toys would be the Dollar Store waves and subsequent repaints. 

Imagine the nerd-rage in NOLA in June, if I was a Hasbro rep, I'd ask for a temporary transfer to Star Wars for the summer.

Not to be fan boy  chicken little, but.... "death of the line"

Either the figures get held till the movie finlly hits and we have no Joes on the shelves for 10 months (won't be much of a change in some stores) or like you said, they will be on clearance before Labor day....

I don't like 3D per se, it's not something I seek out.  I just see this as a money and Job losing fiasco for somebody in Pawtucket.

I was actually planning my B-Day party around the release.  Oh well.

What a trainwreck of a thread. It's always something with those guys.

Makes me wonder though - why doesn't someone start a SW website for adults, where cursing and all that stuff is ok?

Some ego crazed troll would just buy it from them if they did.  And then make Jeff and Jesse do all the work.

I'm starting to think there will be another wave of ex-RS members dropping by, if that thread continues on its current path.

Lock the doors, turn out the lights and everybody hide..maybe they will think we aren't home.

I like this. I agree with Jesse - I wouldn't be surprised if Target was getting a new Speeder Bike in a Vintage box just like they got the Tauntaun and Landspeeder.

If they do, it better not be $25 unless it comes with a ball joint hip Scout Trooper...

Ball Jointed hip Biker Scout is the last figure I need and I can quit the hobby. 


So, anyone heading to Disney willing to pick up one of each droid part for me?   :)

I know somebody that goes twice a year.

And gets the wife to agree to it by taking her with him. 

Plus they sell alcohol there, a great ally in unauthorized spending.

Hit 4 Dollar Generals found one complete set. (all at the same store)

These are set to auto-reorder once sold out. Also these stores CAN check stock if you have the number , I will take a pic of my receipt so y'all can use it.

Oh and the price is $6, the $3.50 was for the galactic heroes sized joes.

Well informing the senate they were killed isn't the same as killing them. 

Surely they wanted to interrogate them.  How many floating doctor/interrogation droids are there?

2.  the common trait all of the employees share at these stores

Dollar General name tags?

I'd be willing to change the main banners to "JediMacDefender" in celebration. 

And by that I mean I'd have one of the guys on staff that knows how to do that do it...

The Original Trilogy / Look Sir Droids...

If "the tracks lead off in is direction...", why did it take finding a metal washer to figure out it was droids, I mean sure C3P0 walks semi-human esque. But R2D2 is making 3 distinct tracks.  How many species have 3 legs that "drag" like that? 

Not being overly critical of the "canon".... I'm just making conversation.

And why would the rocky area be better for R2 and not C3P0?

Where did they end up?  Without getting too deep into EU?

I was watching Star Wars and was thinking, why not let them out if they are on the Death Star.  Once your cover is blown why not?

Voltar is up.  I can't post it, I'm on my iPad and it is smarter than me.

I'm going to make a 45 minute Friday afternoon commute take 3 hours.  There are 10 in reasonable distance from the highway on my way home.
