The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Target DPCI #s for TSC
« on: February 12, 2006, 11:37 AM »
My TIE Fighter when I went for it before they were on shelves I got with the first confused stocker I found...  So that was cool.  Persistance is key I guess though, incase you're denied.

A little off topic, but I never found the Target TIE with the new wings. Anyone know if they are due out again? Or should I start searching ebay?

I don't see this on the slate for any time soon. It could show up at Hasbro direct like the ROTS interactive R2, but I wouldn't recommend that path if you really want one. I checked ebay completed ones, and they went for 30-45 dollars. Basically still retail or a little better if you are lucky. I would say grab 2 if you can, they look great next to Darth's TIE!

Put me down for RH Vader as well. If you are new to collecting the line, that one can be had for less than 10.00 easy, and is well worth the money.

With the announcement of an Endor AT-AT, we should be seeing these again sometime soon. I understand Toy Fair doesn't generally show exclusives, and I'm pretty sure this was scheduled for Target or Toys R Us only. I would guess we are looking at a 60.00 price tag minimum.

Since it is supposed to be from Endor, I am wondering if they will leave the electronic gadget out of this one. Everything from that was from Hoth anyhow. I hope they leave the paint alone though. I don't want a bunch of green and brown paint splattered on it.

Now that I've been opening the hoth wave, I hate these things. I love the cardback art for Veers and the AT-At driver, and they have a big old hole in them because of these lame-blue-saggy-sabered sith that are sitting in a junk drawer.

The push for getting star wars into every niche is disappointing. The choppers, transformers, force battlers, metal ships, mini-figs, and now metal figs. If there are people out there that love them, great, but we don't seem to see many of those people around these parts.

But as long as retail is happy with the line, we get to keep on chasing. So let Hasbro make some stuff at various price points to keep the retailers smiling and rolling in our filthy money.  ;D

That is a dang pretty outpost- Excellent work!

I'm afraid Hasbro is never going to give us a playset this nice, for any price.

I bought is as a display piece as well, but I don't know now. It sits on top of my Millenium Falcon Crew set from the Sams'club special pack a few years ago. It looks kind of cool, but I am soooo sick of that Vader mold. The imperial packs a few years back, the hoth version, I must have 8 of this guy. Enough already.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: SAGA - how much have you bought so far?

I have both Fett versions from Carkoon, and one each carded from Hoth. I have extra Veers, AT-AT's and gonks, but still need to get more snowtroopers before they dry up completely.

These droids are super-cool! Thanks again for being the local distributor Jeff!

I wish there was more than 1 imperial though... My display space is limited, and I can only have so many dioramas set up at a time. I need more "bad" droids for my death star.

How about plastic strong enough to keep it's shape even when subjected to that mysterious force known as gravity? Plastic that isn't trying to become a liquid, and knee joints. Those would be some cool gimmicks.

My closest Wal-mart has had 3 carkoon figures for the last 3 weeks. I've found Hoth elsewhere, but that means an extra $1.00 each at Target. Bring on the new figures!

Those are some nice looking imperial customs!

The way these waves are flying in, I'm hoping to score a couple more Hoth army builders before they are on to geonosis!

I wasn't expecting this interesting of a read when I hopped on the thread- but I'll throw another two cents in.

Wal-mart and Hasbro both use the perfectly legal business practice that I think is a threat to our economy. The use of cheap (near slave wage) foreign labor. Look at what it costs to ship something overseas. If you are selling a $5.00 product in the US, it should be cheaper to make it here than ship it over the ocean. But if you can pay sweat shop wages, suddenly you can be "competitive." This is happening everywhere in our economy. I manage construction projects at a local hospital campus. They have even talked about out-sourcing architectual work to India because it is so cheap. Businesses are in a position to send all their labor needs overseas where they are not responsible for things like minimum wage and working conditions. To me it smacks of colonialism, and is a huge contributor to global resentment of the United States. This is a great country, we can do so much better than this. It is time for government to quite catering to businesses, and start demanding they follow U.S. labor laws even if their labor forces are not in the U.S. Then we would see some real job growth in this country.

I like exclusives. When they are cool. Just to stay on topic.

$45.00 is hard, but 2006 seems to be year of experimenting just how high they can go. Well, they'll get my 45 for that ship. The clone wars cartoons were a nice diversion that fit the continuity well. Like the OTC line, the CW should be finite and you can actually get one of everything without adding on or selling your home.

I dunno, sometimes their naming gets a little goofy. The previous target exclusive was "Clone attack on Coruscant" which wasn't exactly accurate. The defense of the senate pack could be anything at this point.
