TSC Recent Acquisitions
« on: November 18, 2005, 03:19 PM »
Just thought I'd start a thread here for folks to brag about their recent TSC buys. Similar to the episode three recent purchases thread that I like to view so I know when to start hitting the stores

The stores around me have so much ROTS stock that there has been no sign of the "final 5".  Therefore, I'd just like to preemptively post that when you all start finding the 1st wave of TSC I will not be finding them for like 3-4 months after that... :P

Some stores in my area are well stocked with ROTS, others are not.   So who knows... I am sure that TSC will start leaking in before Christmas at some locations though.

I just noticed that rishakra and CHEWIE's avatar gifs are very similar in theme.

Do you guys shop at the same kid getting hit in the head with a ball gif shop?  ;D

I was actually inspired by CHEWIE's gif.  The way that kid arches his back after getting popped in the head.   :D  Man that is too funny!

Agreed! Priceless!  ;D

Back to topic- I just found the Carkoon Wave at TRU in Toronto Canada!

We aren't getting the fianl ROTS 12 up here, but at least there is something for under the tree this year.  ;D

Nice find, Tedious!  Pretty cool that these showed up north of the border already.   8)

Actually, I don't mind them.  For OTC, I preferred the US picture cardbacks over CDN starbursts (and collected US), but the star background works well here.  It doesn't distract from the figure.

For sure. I am an opener, but I keep my packaging. These work out pretty good for me because I only have to keep 1 card per wave.

BTW, DSJ, your avatar is mesmerizing...  :)

Hey Aaron, nice score! Is it unusual for you guys to score stuff first?
