Revenge of the Sith / Re: Wal-Mart Exclusive
« on: March 28, 2005, 05:12 PM »
I'll be passing on this one... and, now, the only way I go to Wal-Mart on 4-2 is if Target doesn't send me a $1 off coupon.  If I do get the coupon from Target, then that will be the ONLY stop I make on April 2nd.   ;)

Jeff and I are working on the same wavelength - Target sure as heck will hopefully send me a coupon card. They would be foolish not to - since TRU is a no-go except for perhaps a few minutes at MidnightMadness to grab a couple of clones or other army builders that might be hard to get - all of my other business will happily go to Target if they send me a $1 off coupon.

If they don't, I'll get all my ships and playsets at TRU at MM, wait in line at Target for the Lava Vader and then head to WalMart to get what I can for $5.24 a figure.

Well, I really love this one!!!!  Anakin #50!



 :P

Yeah - this figure is going to ROCK - I can't wait for it to come out - I think it will be my favorite figure in the line.

Clearly they are doing the same thing like they did for Dagobah Training Luke where there are multiple heads and arms - I wonder if there will be packaging variants where one version will have him all pristine and another version will have him crispy-critter?

What are the chances that this sucker will show up at the Fanclub later on?  Remember the original Toyfair Vader?  Hasbro hopefully will rethink this after the release.

Thing is this:

1) This IS ToyFair Vader only in Red Metallic as opposed to Silver Metallic!

2) Not on your life - if you don't get this on the 2nd, head to eBay. If you're patient - wait a bit it MAY drop off like Jorg Sacul did.

If today has made ANYTHING obvious, Hasbro is NOT THINKING - period. The Holo Yoda which is the best (IMHO) of the batch of the exclusives won't be there on the 2nd. The "Early Bird" kit promo is (again IMHO) lame and the Target one is going on like living in a policed state.

Hasbro shouldn't be allowing ANY of this to be going on! and if they were actually THINKING, it wouldn't be...  >:(

You know what just occurred to me? The picture of the carded Lava Reflection Vader on the Hasbro website (and what was previously floating around) is NOT correct - unless there is a backer inside the bubble and the helmet card is separate - if you look at the surfacing packaging shots, you will see that the card does not have the helmet shape - instead it is the regular rectangular card with a rounded top.

Odd...

So $30 for a certificate that you mail in to get unknown figs? Lame.

(I know we know what characters the figs are, but it doesn't specify WHICH figs)

Why they are re-packaged VOTC figures that wouldn't sell even at clearance prices of course!

 ;D

You know - I'm starting to consider skipping TRU - if I get a coupon for $1 off each figure, that may seal the deal (so to speak) - I'd much rather take my chances with Target and grab all my stuff there after I've picked up the Lava Vader - if I line up at Target right when they close at 10PM the night before, I'm bound to be the first person in line...

They still aren't clear regarding the figures themselves.  ::)

Is anyone curious how the math works for this ****? How many Target stores are there in the US? 1000? 2000? If so, what's the math work out to here?

Well - according to previous estimates it works out to anywhere from 36 to 48 figures per store (multiples of 12 since I think there are 12 per case).

Well - the Early Bird kit was Luke, Leia, R2-D2 and Chewie.

Personally, since they just came out with outstanding VOTC versions of these four characters, I find it hard to believe that they are going to ask $30 for four repro figures of the calibur of 1977.

I bet it will turn out to be the VOTC version of the Early Bird kit.

Well - according to CNN it really will be the Early Bird Kit - a replica of the kit from 1977....

There's a thread over on RS where a guy in Louisiana found 12 hanging from the pegs at his local Target - he has pictures of the two he bought too...

Just great...  >:(

I may just end up saying screw it.  I know I won't be on Ebay buying it.  Not that I would win an auction anyway with them going up to $100.  It's $12.99 or nothing for me. 

Yeah - I think I may be in that boat as well - I can fit buying one or two at $13 each into my $1300+ budget for ROTS stuff, but having to turn around and purchase one for $100 puts it out of my league and I may have to rely on getting one much later down the line like I will with the Celebration III Vader figure - since I won't be going, I have no choice but to get that on the secondary market.

Jocasta's Reading Room / ROTS Comics Out Now!
« on: March 28, 2005, 02:25 PM »
Went into Borders Books near where I work at lunch time and I was able to pick up issues 1 and 2 of the comic book adaptation of ROTS.

I also grabbed issue 1 of the General Grevious series.

Does anyone know if Obsession #4 or #5 has come out yet - they didn't have either in so my guess is no - but I've missed things relying solely on them before...

How the hell do these people have their hands on these things? I thought the Nazi Party of the Nation of Target was guarding these things in their manager's offices and they were not to be let out on the floor under any circumstance.

 >:(

Just goes to show you that no matter where you go, retailers for the most part just don't care and if they could have, I bet WalMart and Target would be freely selling this stuff.
