The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Who Wants More Ewoks?
« on: October 29, 2013, 10:07 AM »
I'll take Ewoks over Gungans any day of the week.

I got a price adjustment no problem. But then again, I had just bought the Ewok sets and on scanning set I found just a couple of days ago.

Woah, woah, woah! That would be awesome!

And, as a follow-up, I ran to that store anyway and picked up this set.

I could swear I wrote a post two weeks ago that predicted that the two days I was out of town on a job, that the scanning sets would show up at my closest Kmart that I've been hitting every day. Well, I was right. Talked to the local Hasbro rep today and my local Kmart did indeed get one case in, and that's all they're getting.  >:(

What's also funny, in a frustrating way, is that they only put up the shelf tag last week, so they made room for an item they won't be restocking.

It's kind of amazing that these are consistently showing as in stock at stores across town 40 miles away, but at the two stores close, not a sign.

The website had one these sets listed as available starting Oct 31st, but wouldn't let me order, then changed the date to Nov 1st, then went back to the normal, temporarily unavailable. Weird.

Wondering if they'll show up in Sears.

Hey! That shirt MUST be BUTTONED!!!  ;D

I pointed this out to Darryl at SDCC this past year.

There hasn't even been a whiff of these around here. I'm hoping they become available on-line, won't go too crazy on them, though. Two of each at least. Glad we can swap some heads.

It strikes me that someone could make a cast of the tops to help fill in all the ones we got from the Legacy series.

This was a very nice surprise. Of course I'm stoked about the Snowtrooper commander.

Well, it isn't me and my bad luck then. On Wednesday when the news broke, I checked my local store before I went to work, they were not in yet. Later, they must have listed as having them in stock and a buddy ordered a set or so on-line for in store pick up. I did the same, but could only order one unless I wanted to drive 50 miles to the next closest one that had more than one. By the end of the day, both of our orders were canceled.

After picking up the Sandtrooper, the stormtooper is certainly a lock. Solid figures.

Picked up the Sandtrooper. Have to admit, it's pretty cool. Looked hard at R2, but couldn't pull the trigger for $20.

Been seeing these a lot at retail lately. Not moving as fast as the 6 inch though.

Really? The POTJ one is accurate color-wise? Seems a bit muted to me.

BTW, I think I'm going to get rid of two of my POTJ TIE Ints since the mold doesn't seem to quite fit in any more. It'll cut down my Interceptor fleet from 11 to 9.
