The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 6
« on: November 19, 2014, 09:42 PM »
Checked out TRU a couple of days ago. They had 11 R5-G19s and no other figures on the pegs. Where did they get 11 R5s? Someone must have dumped them here. Picked up StarKiller off ebay for $10.51. Considering ebay an paypal fees, I think the seller lost money on this one.  :)

Maybe a solid case of the R5s got shipped to a brick-and-mortar store instead of staying in their online distribution center inventory?

I could be mistaken but I thought those solid cases of a single figure were for the online shops only so that they could specifically sell by-the-figure.

I also picked up the Clone Wars this a straight up recard of a previous figure? I couldn't recall in the store.

Yes (sort of) - it is a re-release of SL#13 from earlier this year that only showed up in Canada on tri-logo cards. It was in a wave with Jedi Luke (also in this first Rebels Saga Legends wave), the Snowtrooper (again also in this wave) and a Darth Maul - that I think is on a check-list of coming Saga Legends figures, but I'm not 100% sure on that...

So unless you live in Canada, this is your first chance to see this figure on a peg in a store.

Picked up openers of The Inquisitor, Agent Kallus (sp?) and Chopper this morning. I also grabbed another SW: Rebels Stormtrooper so I can have a small squad of four. Unless I stumble across an extra Inquisitor to permanently have sitting in his Advanced TIE Prototype, I think I'm "done" for the year now since I'm good with both the Wave 1 Basic Figures and Wave 1 Mission Series 2-Packs.

Wouldn't mind scoring a 2nd opener of the Build-A-Droid R5 that's in the 1st Black Series (Blue) wave - but if I never get that 2nd one, I won't be heart-broken...

Nice score Pete!

I managed to find another Chopper on a better card to keep for my MOC collection, at Target after work, so that was cool.

One thing I've noticed already is that this smaller packaging is a lot more prone to damage than previous versions. I've seen wrinkled cards, badly warped cards, and more than a few crushed or cracked bubbles, almost like the plastic is more brittle.

I've noticed that as well - I totally lucked out with the 12 I found - they must have come from a incredibly pristine case, but I found openers of Kanan, Ezra, Stormtrooper, Jedi Luke, Snowtrooper and Clone Wars Obi-wan - and those weren't in good condition at all...

Can't wait to find openers of Chopper and the Inquisitor - I'm looking forward to those figures from this first wave the most.

Found a complete set of 12 Legends figures this morning at my local Toys R Us - grabbed them all...

and a (I think) unique Elrond in battle armor

Yes - his armor is indeed unique - I was thinking it was the same as the mini figure from the LOTR Lego Game Polybag release, but it's not.

Still no sign of the individually carded figures in my neck of the woods - did get the new Mission Series sets from Rebels today though - picked up R2//3PO and Zeb/Stormtrooper

Left the Emperor/Yoda, Bespin Luke/Vader and Boba/Stormtrooper sets behind since they all appeared to be re-releases from the previously issued Mission Series sets (or in the case of Boba/Stormtrooper a combined re-release from the single carded figs).

While the double VIP points were still in effect I grabbed the final two Hobbit sets I needed - finally got a chance to put together Smaug last night - they did a great job on him - gonna finish the lonely Mountain Set tonight. The Battle of the Five Armies (which is Army-less mini-figure wise) was even more of a let-down than I was expecting...

Finished up what I needed from the 2014 sets using points and getting double-points:

Star Destroyer
Trade Federation MTT

Would have been cool if the Slave I was out, but oh well... no new Star Wars lego until 2015 for me now...

Picked up the Phantom and an opener of the AT-DP - just need to grab an opener for the Inquisitor's TIE and the Phantom now and I'll be done with this first round of vehicles...

My local TRU put out a case of this wave this morning - all I needed was Doallyn - so I picked him up - left the Ree Yees behind...

Man I wish there was a cheaper way to get Smaug.  Those sets just aren't appealing really. The five armies kinda sucks to be honest.

Agreed - I grabbed the new Lake Town set and the Witch King Battle set - and the only thing cool out of all of these sets IMHO was the Witch King and Galadriel (sp?) mini-figures.

I would be okay with this "re-release" of 3PO if they have perfected being able to take him COMPLETELY apart like when he's blasted apart on Bespin. You can get close with TVC figure, but there were limitations.

When I stopped at a Toys R Us today (looking for the Rebels 3-pack) I struck up a conversation with the employee who rang me up and it turns out he had already set up the bags of parts for this weekend's mini-Ghost build, so he gave me a bag and instruction sheet.

Not an amazing design, but still a neat little attempt to do the Ghost at this micro-mini scale. Also glad I don't have to go during the build hours and jockey for the parts among throngs of screaming kids...

Picked up two of the Toys R Us Rebels 3-packs today - took advantage of the Buy-one-get-one-50%-off deal they have running right now.
