The Vintage Collection / Re: 2021 TVC Wave 6 (New TVC Wave 21)
« on: September 29, 2021, 12:53 PM »
This wave has hit the Midwest, I just found the 3 Landos from the case at my local Walmart in Streamwood IL. I was told I just missed the rest of the case, díoh! But at least I found something new for a change.

Was at my local store here in the Chicago burbs and while they confirmed today was listed as the first day of sale for the DPCI none were in stock at the store or other local stores. And nothing was listed as due in any time soon. Makes me wonder if it will even reach stores or if it will be an unintentional online only exclusive.

Same here, should have my Fetts by Tuesday the 27th. A few days earlier than expected which is nice since they have delayed the next TBS wave for 3 months.  >:(

Got my Jaxxon from Pulse over the weekend and he is fantastic. A nice use of old parts (except for the boots) and the head sculpt is fantastic. Pulse sent a msg last week saying Kir Kanos was delayed until mid August and now last night a new msg saying Luke was delayed until September 1.  ???

Appreciate the offer, but the collection is as complete as I can figure out how to make it, so Iím hanging onto the Vaderís.  Iím just kidding around about how if I was smart, Iíd take the money and run.

No worries,  I can appreciate wanting to keep the set together.

If anyone else is interested hit me up

Considering that a loose Vader is getting $50 on eBay now, what I really should do is sell 17 of them instead of buying 6 Fetts.

If youíre interested, barring any issues with my order, I will have an extra Fett that I am looking to trade for a Vader.

You have to wonder what is really in it for the buyer. I imagine just a means to get the list of forum member email addresses for marketing purposes and to throw more ads on the front page. RS hasnít been a news worthy site since Curto left almost a decade ago. The change in RS now or tomorrow is insignificant nowadays.

The value of user data is something that tends to go by most people without much regard, but there can be significant value there in large communities.  In the case of RS, I don't know if that's even worth it because I get the sense that their user data might largely be dated.  But I would not put it past the new owners to sell the user data to whomever.

Exactly my thinking. While there is value is that amount of data it has to definitely be dated. Hell my member ID is linked to a Yahoo email account I killed a decade ago. How many others are in similar situations. Oh well itís their money right?

Iím content with the friends I made here.  Not a lot of new guys I feel Iíd relate to, and not even a lot of older collectors I relate to anymore now that many of them are batshit insane.

Hey! I represent that comment lol.

Picked up a Deluxe Fett over the weekend and in package he definitely has a squashed helmet. But once you take it out, it returns to its shape. The helmet is thin due to it being designed to be removable. Of course itís glued to the unpainted head underneath, but you can see where they will eventually go.

And as far as I can tell, this is an all new sculpt which was quite a surprise.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Recents Finds and/or Purchases
« on: February 15, 2021, 05:09 PM »
Was shocked today to see a few of the old Rebels 2-packs on the pegs at 5 Below today! I picked up the Cadet Ezra/Kanan set along with the TIE Pilot/Stormtrooper set. The packaging is 100% legit but the figures themselves look almost like cheap knockoffs. Same basic sculpt but with cheap, super sloppy paint apps. Would love to hear the story behind these...

The story as I have heard it and it may have been told in part here on JD is that these are old stock that sat at the Oakland port when they had a strike back in 2015. The stock sat in a shipping container in the heat for a good chunk of that summer which leads to the poor look of them as the plastic and paint have been affected. Since these are basically damaged good Hasbro couldnít send them onto whomever they belonged to and sat on them until Five Below bought the stock in late 2019 (around the time I found them).

When was the last wave that shipped in close to quantity that could peg warm? Admittedly I mostly only hit Target, but two cases tops per wave per store near me.

Around me only the first wave when TVC returned warmed pegs. The rest of the 2018 waves came and went, nothing showed up in 2019, and in 2020 the waves only lasted a day or two as well. With the exception of one beat up General Lando which eventually got bought up.  I imagine by now the 8 figures i saw on the pegs are gone. Thankfully online has been plentiful with options to buy.

I shared this on the Facebook page earlier, I found this wave at Walmart today. Wound up passing on them though, didn't need to pay $14 for figures i either had a ton of already or paid less than $5 when they first came out

I got my 2nd order of this set and it did not come with a pin either. Having read that others had some success with Walmart support, I gave them a try. They wound up giving me a 10% discount which covers tax for me. Since I don't need the pin, the discount is a good substitute

Just received my figure (1 was cancelled). It came in a box too small for it, so as always beware if you are a carded collector. Also it didnít come with that pin, was that supposed to be included with the original orders?

Havenít opened it yet, but Mando has some unique weathering and his right leg armor is now Beskar. Grogu looks so tiny and cute.

Resurrecting this thread so all can be on the lookout at Ross. I found one of these today for $7.99, not a bad price at all for the figure.
