The Vintage Collection / Re: 2020 TVC Wave 4 (aka New TVC Wave 14)
« on: August 12, 2020, 01:09 AM »
Just wanted to echo the sentiments of everyone else here - great job on the review video Anthony. It was nice to see that with my four open K2SOs (and my hope to score at least two more) there is someone else out there grabbing multiples like me.  ;D

Got my GameStop order today (well most of it since Kanan and Ahsoka are both missing).

Love the new artwork on the Black Series boxes. Would have preferred that they had maintained the same shape of the Black Series figures and just replaced the side of the box that has been red w/the number since the first Force Awakens wave, with the artwork, but it's not the end of the world, just makes them a tad bit more difficult to display.

I got two sets of the Rebels crew re-releases so I could open up an entire set of the crew and have them on display in addition to keeping set of them MIB.

I'm not a 100% opener when it comes to the Black Series, so I was already cherry-picking what I wanted to have open and getting a 2nd one solely for that purpose. If that changes in the future, I would probably switch over to just having all of the Black Series open and not worrying about collecting them MIB anymore.

As with all things lately, since I have everything 3.75" opened and a duplicate MIB or MOC, I have been contemplating the possibility of starting to sell off the in-package stuff just to shrink the overall footprint of the collection - and I've already decided that if I do that, the ONLY in-package stuff I keep will be the stuff done in the Vintage style packaging. So that would extend to the Black series figures carded up on vintage-like cardbacks.

Got my Vader (via Hasbro Pulse) on Friday - probably my LEAST favorite of the Carbonized figures so far. Now I just need to get my Boba Fett (which I ordered from EE) and I'll have a "complete" set. Probably my favorite carbonized figure so far is the Stormtrooper. The look of the resulting figure and the packaging are both just great in my opinion.

I have the same situation - got a shipping notice that everyone is coming except for Ahsoka and Kanan.

The other weird thing is that it seems like I have two shipments coming, but the Gamestop site only shows the one, so I'm VERY curious to see what actually arrives....

From Yakface...

Got these today thanks to my dealer a friend.

Nice color combo, although I would have liked it if they took this as an opportunity to offer one of the other BB unit heads in a different color instead of BB-8's head...

Using the new TVC DPCI, I've been able to score pretty much everything I need from the K2SO/Power Droid/Commander Wolfe/Stormtrooper Luke wave. I have a pre-order for 2 more Power Droids and one for another K2SO - I might cancel the K2SO now that I have three open, but the Power Droid, I definitely want more of...

I have a complete set of these on pre-order from, which has yet to ship, but I've also scored another set from Target. I am having a heck of a time finding a MOC R2-D2. So I'm hoping when my pre-order set arrives, the R2 will be MOMC.

Really like the face swap feature of the Hoth Rebel Trooper - can't wait to have two of them on display with the different faces.

Has there been any word on when Wave 3 will be available for pre-order? I know most of them are just supposed to be repacks (I've heard Vader, Snowtrooper, Boba Fett for example) - but I still want to include them in the set.

Got my pre-order this past week. Very glad to have it. The recent rumors around a Darth Nihilus and other Gaming Greats figures coming, has me holding out hope we might get a 6" Gaming Greats Starkiller at some point - but what outfit? I'm hoping it's something from the first game - like what we got pre-TVC and not a 6" version of the TVC figure.

I have been wanting a complete set of the figures from the Solo movie to open, so I recently made a run on them via Amazon - scored Han, Chewie (Vandor-1), Lando, L3-37, Val (Vandor-1), Tobias Beckett, Qi'ra (Corellia), Rio Durant, Enfys Nest w/Swoop, Imperial Range Trooper, Imperial Scout Trooper & Dryden Vos - all for around $160 total (MSRP is $280).

What kicked it all off was buying Moloch for $12 at my local Target when I was out looking for some openers of the 40th Anniversary ESB Black Series figures.

So now all I need is Mudtrooper Han and the Mimban Stormtrooper and I'll have a complete set both open and MIB.

If you have a chance to score Enfys Nest w/her Swoop Bike at a discounted price, jump on it, the vehicle is VERY impressive. I thought the 6" Rey Speeder was amazing, this beats it hands-down.

Got my two of these this week. Very pleased with this re-release. The stand makes all the difference this time around. I've always wanted a cool way to display the Slave I and up to this point, the only way I've been able to display it is in the "landed" position or for the old Vintage mold that was re-released in 1995, I used the handle to hang it from a wire along with some other fighter-craft in my basement.

Too bad Hasbro didn't have a way to offer just the stand for folks who already have this or the Jango Fett colored version from Clone Wars - I would buy extra stands to display all three of them in "flight mode".

I got the three items in the Helmet Collection -  Boba Fett, Stormtrooper & TIE Pilot on Thursday last week, put them together over the weekend.

Went to Target on Sunday morning, and picked up the buildable D-0, fun build

Anyone have a Brickseek SKU or UPC to check for these?  Getting antsy about them after missing the preorder and not seeing any local SW shippers.

UPC: 5010993687213
SKU: 591904753

If you have the Walmart Mobile App, click the icon to scan a barcode, the camera will come up like you're going to take a pic of a barcode - in the upper right corner of the screen there should be an icon that looks like a keyboard - click that and then type in the UPC manually.  ;D

In case anyone wants to just order this online - it's listed as "In Stock" on -

I just ordered two for myself, one to keep MIB (as shipped) and one so I can display the Snowspeeder Pilot Luke MOC with the rest of the ESB Retro Collection. I did the same thing with the ANH Death Star game.

Unlike the Escape the Death Star game, I never had this one when I was a kid, so I may have to actually break this game out and give it a try.

Was finally able to cobble together a set of these, first by placing an order for some from the app a week ago, they said they had plenty in stock, so I ordered 6, they cut my order down to 4 and I lucked out and the order included Boba Fett, Yoda, Hoth Han & Bespin Luke. Then this morning, I hit that same WalMart that the app indicated had stock and I found Leia and Lando (along with another Bespin Luke, Hoth Han, another Hoth Leia and two more Landos) scattered around the toy section.

I've had to use books to attempt to flatten the curvature of all of the cardbacks on these - apparently the endcap display shipper is to be blamed for the curvature of the carbacks, but I don't buy it as this store had no sign of the actual endcap shipper - just the items, so unless they purposely ditched the endcap display, they came out of the shipping boxes with slightly curled/curved cardbacks.

Finally found the Knight of Ren, Zori Bliss and Sith Jet Trooper at Walmart this morning. No sign of Bly or Dooku, so I'm going to have to order them online from someone that still has them up for pre-order. I've given up hoping that this wave will show up at my local Target, they are clogged with the remnants of the Cara Dune wave right now.
