The Vintage Collection / Re: Target 2021 TVC Droids Carded Figures
« on: September 24, 2021, 12:45 PM »
Thanks to Jay and Dave for the head's up on these!  I was able to nab the two droids and the 6" Fett, but TVC Fett was gone by the time I ordered at 8:15.  Hopefully Fett will still be available in store at some point.  I have to say, I'm really exhausted with all the online ordering.  I know some people are right on the ball with this stuff and probably prefer ordering from a PC or phone, but I've come to realize that a big part of collecting for me is the hunt/find.  Between not having my eyes glued to new SW information every second of the day and the relative bore of opening one figure per box and often finding them bent or smashed, my interest in collecting new stuff is at an all time low.

100% this. 

We went from a hobby where toys ended up in stores and you could walk in and buy them, to one where there's a 15 minute pre-order window and if you miss it you're off to eBay because that's just about it.  It's pretty lame.

It’ll probably be soon.  This Target event runs a few days.

Yeah, especially since we're probably all going to order 5-7 Figrin D'ans to update our Cantina band. I could make a joke about fresh **** in the cantina (that's the actual name of that type of music in the SW universe, I **** you not), but I—oh, I guess I did

There are 7 band members, so…

I ordered them, it was easy… all that is good.  But yes, going from $12.99 straight to $15.99 for exclusive figures that are basically really nice repaints is a bummer.  And once again it’s the same core characters without anything new at that high price.  If they’d rounded this out with Tig Fromm and Vlix or something like that it would be a different story, but it seems like the only actual new product we get is from Mandalorian, and those are few and far between.

It's been decades since I've watched Droids... when in the general timeline does it take place?

Agreed Jeff.  Way better looking than expected.  The coins are a nice bonus too.   I wonder if this opens the door to POTF style vintage cards and of course, Sim Aloo.

25 years in and an actual NEW figure if an actual NEW character still is a lot of fun for me.

The carbonized and the gimmicks and the prototypes… not so much.  They feel like a chore more than a hobby.  But I’m in too deep and it’s too complete if a collection for me to ever alter how I do things.

The last two weeks I thought I didn't have ESPN2 so I haven't checked this out yet, turns out I was just looking at the wrong channel where I thought it used to be.  I'm definitely switching over to them next week.  Levy and Griese and the third guy are boring, pedestrian... cliche... it's sad how far MNF has fallen since Gruden and Tirico left.

Agreed there.  Zeb was pretty pedestrian as far as character design goes.

What a cool fresh idea to close out the series... our band of hero characters runs into a dangerous group of other people!

The Maul and Ahsoka I'd ordered from Target.com shipped and arrived yesterday too, that's why I left those ones in the store...

$16 repaints, $19 "carbonized"...

Feels like they've been getting all their ideas from Super 7, and I don't like it.

They had two Ahsoka's and a Maul too.  I left those.

I just wandered into one of the mini-Targets here in the city and found two Jawas.

I couldn't believe my eyes.

Super lame.
