Star Wars Rebels / Re: Recents Finds and/or Purchases
« on: March 27, 2015, 10:04 PM »
The TRU in Schaumburg, IL has raised the price on Saga Legends and Mission Series to $9.99 & $11.99 respectively. SL now is the same price as TBS, that's obscene!

This is likely an isolated incident, the store is in a huge shopping district near some wealthier towns. But it's insane nonetheless.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Re: Black Series Rumors

$12.99 confirmed in the far northwest suburbs of Chicago. Testing or not, Target is going to wind up pricing many people of buying from their stores.

Now that's a deal!  Congrats Man!

Thanks JJ! It's a fun set. How you been, ping me sometime.

Greg - both stores in was at today had the same sale. I'd venture the other stores in the asrea are the same.

Found the Biker Scout w/ Speeder Bike set at Target today. They're having a BOGO 40% off sale on all toys this week, so was able to get 2 of these for $32 + tax each. Takes a bit of work to get the Scout on the bike properly, but once he's on it makes for a great display. Check the JD Facebook page for a photo ;)

Just finished up a great transaction with Darby. It was a pleasure working with him, quick on the communications and his part of the deal. Can't go wrong with this guy.

Thanks Darby!

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends Figures

I noticed the poster showed they are making a Rebels animated Obi-Wan. Could this mean a story arc could take place on Tatooine? Could we perhaps see a young Luke on the show?? That to me adds excitement to the upcoming debut of the cartoon

Star Wars Universe / Re: Disney to Purge Select EU
« on: April 25, 2014, 05:23 PM »
I don't see this necessarily being a bad thing. For those of us who like the idea of parallel universes, we can just consider the Post-ROTJ EU to be just that. It can live in harmony alongside what the sequels bring, similar to how the Star Trek reboot have done for TOS.

In terms of stories being ignored, they've already gone through this I believe with the Marvel comics. After the resurgence of Star Wars in media began in the 90s, I believe there were no references to Marvel material up until the Legacy of the Force anthology began. That essentially to me was ignoring what had come before, so it isn't necessarily new ground we're treading here.

At the same time it also makes sense and I'm wondering if they will do the same for the EU between ANH & ROTJ. I've always thought the EU between ANH & ESB was very messy as there's far too many stories and events taking place for the core heroes than could occur in that 3 year period. Between the Marvel comics series, the newspaper strips, the various Dark Horse lines, and novels, a lot seemed to take place in those 3 years and none of it really lined up together. So perhaps we'll get a clean slate there as well or since Disney owns Marvel, the 77-86 comic series will be considered the official story.

Great recent pick ups everyone. Not much has been added to my collection lately, did score a very good Blue snaggletooth for $80 around the holidays.

Darby - good scores at Forever Young. That lady has been "closing" shop for years. How's the vintage selection at Kapow? I've been meaning to go there myself some day.

Dale - sweet Canadian header, looks to be in great shape. How are you displaying it?

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series 2014 Wave 3

Great coverage on Toy Fair Jeff! Was there any indication as to when this wave would come out? The Jedi Luke is the 6" figure I've been waiting for. Thanks!

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Amazon Droid Factory Multi-Pack
« on: November 21, 2013, 09:35 PM »
$40 on Amazon now...  Far better deal, but really they were worthy at $60 considering you got a bunch of basically army builder repaints and a couple dandy droids.

If people can unwrap themselves from the thought that they're paying $60 for 2 figures, they'd probably be happier collectors.

It's easier to swallow when you sell off the other figures to friends. It's how I just justified buying the set. While it was great for this to be an army builder set, I either had enough of a particular fig (Sandtrooper) or no desire for a fig (the clone). Thankfully someone is taking most of these off my hands so I can keep the BADs. Also made sure to click the banner on the news page to give a little something something to JD   :-*

Unfortunately, I didn't think of taking pics until after I finished peeling the bubble off the card. The bubble was about 50% off the card when I pulled it out of the package which is the same type they use to ship DVD box sets. The card itself was bent at the top as it looked like the figure was jammed into the package.

So my Mara Jade came in from Amazon today. For the carded collector, packaging will be a problem - the figure shipped in a box barely large enough to fit the figure. The card was all bent out of shape and the bubble was popping off. Since I'm a loose collector that doesn't bother me, but I'm sure it would others. On the plus side, the hair/forehead issue has been resolved - the hairline comes further down the head and makes Mara look more normal. Overall it's a nice figure, not what we voted for but I'll definitely take it over not having Mara Jade at all.
