Saga Collection '06 / Re: The Motives Of Scalpers
« on: March 29, 2006, 04:31 AM »
I know a few locals who scalp just to pay for their own collection.

I have a job to pay for my collection.

They should maybe get one too?

Kevin

Here here!

I've heard that before myself... "Well, I sell hot items in other lines to help pay for my collection of ____________"

How about getting a better job so you can help pay for ___________

Typically in my area, the __________ is Hot Wheels collecting. What are cars in the store $1? If you can't swing collecting a line where each item costs $1, you shouldn't be collecting. I know that sounds snobby, but it's the truth.

2642
Ok - I added which Silver Mini Holos are included with these figures.

2643
What is the holo on the Anakin Skywalker?

I think it's Darth Vader. I have two extra Anakins actually, but I won't have the second one in hand until tomorrow at the earliest.

You know - tonight I'll check what each of them are and I'll post what the silver mini holos are with them I think that would be helpful to everyone looking.

Thanks.

Could be worse, you could have zero UGH figures... ::)

You're right, I suppose I should be grateful to some degree. I was mostly voicing my disgust than anything else. I know there are people here who have yet to find any.

Pete, it looks like Grievous and scorch are shipping later. A quick check of ebay will tell you that there are virtually none in the system yet. Rest assured, they will hit. If you want to unload any of your current extras, I would gladly grab a couple :)

Thanks, I hadn't even thought to check eBay to see if they are surfacing in any sort of quantity.

I haven't quite decided what to do with the extra nine I have (I have two extra Anakins). This morning I could have even grabbed yet another Anakin and Obi-Wan, but I just left them for the next guy. I guess I'll figure that out when I get the last two for my own set.

Scored six more UGH figures for my second partial set: Cody, AT-AT Driver, Han Solo, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker & Darth Vader.

The only "plus" to finding some of these is that I now have:
UGH Han Solo w/Silver Han Solo Holo
UGH Obi-Wan w/Silver Obi-wan Holo
UGH Commander Cody w/Silver Stormtrooper Holo

I already had
UGH Darth Vader w/Silver Darth Vader Holo
UGH Boba Fett w/Silver Boba Fett Holo

There are enough "bad guys" to get all six Silver Dark Side Holos plus one repeat, but there are only three "good guys" so in order to get a complete set of 12 Silver Holos you're going to need to double up on the good guys.

Damn my OCD - it's making this whole thing all the more frustrating!

2646
Well now I'm truly frustrated. How is it that I've been able to acquire 2 each of Cody, AT-AT Driver, Anakin, Obi-Wan, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Snowtrooper & Boba Fett, but I can't find even ONE of either Scorch or General Grievous!

***GRRRR***

If this morning I had come across the two I need instead of being able to score six more of the same ones I already had, I'd be on "hunt vacation" until the 2006 VOTC figures started to hit.  >:(

2647
Bump, basically I now have an extra one of EACH UGH except the two I still need: Scorch and General Grievous.

2648
Yeah - here in NJ all of the typical hot wheel collector losers are now going right for the Star Wars section as opposed to rushing over to the Hot Wheels when the store opens.

This can, at times, get to be a tad frustrating.

Luckily, persistence has paid off for me, I have 1 each of the AT-AT Driver, Commander Cody, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Obi-Wan Kenobi and 2 each of Anakin, Boba Fett and the Snowtrooper.

All I need to do is score a Scorch and General Grievous and I'm all set - and I haven't been doing anything different then I normally do - hit at least one WalMart and one Target every morning.

2649
I have the following UGH figures available for trade:
  • Boba Fett (Emperor Silver Mini Holo)
  • Snowtrooper (Darth Maul Silver Mini Holo)
  • Anakin Skywalker (Darth Maul Silver Mini Holo)
  • AT-AT Driver (Darth Vader Silver Mini Holo)
  • Obi-Wan (Yoda Silver Mini Holo)
  • Darth Vader (Darth Vader Silver Mini Holo)

I need:
  • UGH - Scorch
  • UGH - General Grievous

Here are my preferences for the silver mini-holos with Scorch and Grievous (although I know that beggars can't really be choosers)...

UGH Scorch - Luke or Rebel Trooper
UGH Grievous - Count Dooku

Thanks for looking.

Scored UGH variants of Anakin, Obi-Wan, Darth Vader and Han Solo!

Only need two more UGH variants and I have a complete set!

I have these available to trade:
  • Boba Fett
  • Snowtrooper

and I need these two:
  • Scorch
  • General Grievous

2651
Picked up a cody and at at driver UGH figs this morning.  Got boba and snowtrooper yesterday.  I cant wait to get the scorch and vader

Here are the case pairings:

AT-AT Driver/Cody
Snowtrooper/Fett
Vader/Han
Scorch/General Grievous
Obi-Wan/Anakin

In NJ the cases so far all seem to be the first two. I'm hoping that as we move further away or heaven-forbid - the WalMarts finally start to get them in, perhaps they'll have some of the other case varieties and I'll be closer to getting a complete set.

2652
The UGH Figure  will be available as a sealed case of 12 figures (all 10 plus and additional Cody/Snowtrooper) from Case Fresh in May. Case Fresh listened to the fans concerns and approached Hasbro Australia to get sealed complete set case made up for the Australian market. Thru CF's initiative and marketing power they were able to ensure your Hunt was more like a walk in the park. More testament to the fact that CF is the Aussie collectors best friend.

You know - if this is true, I am not surprised. I was partially expecting that either in the fall or by Christmas time a place like either StarWarsShop.com, HasbroToyShop.com or even perhaps EntertainmentEarth would be offering a case of ONLY the UGH variants. Only in my head, the way it would work out is that in those cases there would be two more figures that weren't part of the UGH Coruscant Wave assortments. So let's say that instead of and extra Cody and Snowtrooper, it was the Utapau Clone and Sandtrooper from the Tatooine Wave.

I guess if CaseFresh is getting this, it's still in the realm of possibility for a online store here in the US to get the same kind of thing.

Right now, I'm just happy that I've been able to find four of these UGH variants and all four of them have different silvered mini-holograms.

Did pretty well over the past few days - found four of the foil variant UGH figures at my local Target: Cody, AT-AT Driver, Boba Fett & Snowtrooper - basically four of the six that I want REALLY bad as foil variants. If I can score a Scorch & Vader now, I'll be happy, I never expected to find four so fast.

I've also managed to score almost 2 complete sets of the Coruscant wave - I'm missing a Cody and Holo Ki-Adi Mundi opener and then I'll be done with the wave from a regular figure standpoint.

Of course, I'll keep scouring the stores to find as many UGH foil variants as I can get my hands on... even if I keep seeing the same figures over and over, I'll use them to trade for the rest of the 10.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: Saga 2006 Figure Release List
« on: January 21, 2006, 08:13 AM »
Have you seen this!?!?!? :o

2006 Exclusives

According to this we are getting a Galactic Marine, Faie, and Neyo  :D BUT they will be elxcusives.... Excited but worried...  I love clones and if I can't get gobs of them I get pissed!


That is a very interesting list. I think a lot of it is only rumored at some point, with stuff that IS confirmed thrown in for good measure.

The last column is the expected release date. If you look under the category of Exclusive & Special you see that there is an extra for a Silver Yoda on Black Card-back, a TRU exclusive and the release date was 4/2005. Well a TRU exclusive Yoda DID come out this year, only it was a hologram Yoda on a ROTS card. So until you hear confirmation of one of these rumors, I would assume they are just that - rumors.

Also - I think those three female animated Clone Wars figures in the top list are just wishful thinking. Unless Hasbro plans on releasing a Saga Wave in the animated style, I just don't see these happening. Perhaps at one point, those three were planned to be part of those DVD 3-packs that came out when the 2nd season came out on DVD, but were dropped. As the Coruscant Wave shows us, they are willing to visit characters from the cartoon series (Foul Moudamma), but they are redering them in the style of the regular figure line (which I personally prefer).
