I'm not sure what the consensus is on the choking Vader, but the VOTC one is what I used.



Looks good to me. :)

Brent & Ook:
Here in AZ, TRU has their VOTC for $10.99 US (neither WM or Target has any VOTC left here).  It sounds like that may be more than you wanted to pay, Ook.  How about you Brent?

Jesse - they're only on clearance right now (here in the U.S.) at the Targets and Walmarts (most likely for $5) - but not at TRU.  So don't waste your time scoping any out there!

And I just may have to start up an Arizona finds thread, maybe it'll prompt someone else to keep it up when I leave.   :)

Go for it!  I've thought about starting one myself a few times, since I go out to AZ a few times a year to visit my parents, but I didn't want to confuse anyone in the Finds section, since I've already got the regular Southern California one going.  So if you start an AZ one, I promise to update it at least once around Christmas every year!   ;)

Now go work on that tan so you can make all your fellow Canucks jealous when you get home!   8)

I'm talking clearance prices Ook, however finding them may be tough...

Of course, I'm just wondering about what they'd cost me (Canadian) from Brent because I could always use Stormtroopers...  I just know up in the North they tend to have a higher MSRP (On LOTR they do anyway...  It's a TRU thing?), but for the VOTC I will try finding for you they were $5-ish clearance.

In my neck though, VOTC's dried up fast.  At the $7 price they flew away for the most part too, but $5 was the straw...  They're going fast, and I don't get to WM a lot (they're sparse here, not one every 5 minutes).  The one I was at for Spuffy and CorranHorn had some ANH wave left though so I'll try going back.

My big find at WM recently was $15 X-Treme Detail tanks that normally run $50-ish...  $15's a friggin' steal considering they actually use die-cast metal for their tanks now and I got a Tiger I for $15.  To say it's heavy is an understatement.  It's probably the single best toy I've ever held in my hands, ever.  It's that big, detailed, and friggin' great.  :)  And WM clearanced it for really no reason since the Tigers were moving steadily.

I got a 20th Optimus Prime a while back for $25 at Walmart. That made my day. ;D

Stormies sitting?  *sigh*

How much Canadian to American does that come to Brent?  I always can use more. :P

It's not pretty, I assure you.  www.xe.com takes it to $13.79 USD :o

Crappy price, crappy 14% taxes >:( $17.09 a figure, CAD.

Can anybody help me with Luke, Leia or Lando?

I just ordered 2 Landos for $5 each off Walmart.com. They only have him and Yoda.

Just scored a Millenium Falcon for $20 at Wal-Mart tonight.

I wasn't sure I was going to buy it, but for $20, what the hell, right?  ;)

KB had a lonely Stormtrooper VOTC on the pegs.  At $13 I see why even he was left sitting there, but I bit the mark-up since I got 4 on clearance (I figure that gives me some mark-up leeway to pay :P ) and bought him.

I'm up to 21 now with him...  Wish I had 19 more for a transport full.  :(

Bought a Sandcrawler at my local comic shop today.

Now I just need the Imperial Shuttle and I'll have all the big vehicles Hasbro's made so far.  :)

Found another Imperial trooper at TRU today. Odd thing is, it was the only OTC-labeled figure there. He was hanging with some Cantina and Coruscant wave figures. Weird.

Found A VOTC Boba Fett at Target this morning. The clearance price was $0, but they charged me $5. :P Still, not a bad trade item.

I heard the VOTC figures are showing up at Family Dollar stores. Chewie, 3PO, Stormtrooper, and Lando are the ones I heard mentioned. $5 each.

I traveled to the ghetto today (where the only local FD is located) and they were just unloading the truck, so I didn't see them. I did find some single packed GI Joes, so that was pretty cool.

I'll go back tomorrow or Monday and see if they received them.
