Not a purchase, but an observation - one of my Targets put out the peg hanging clone wars light sabers yesterday. Leaks anyone?

Picked up the BMF Yesterday at Target. It is awesome.

None of my targets have anything in stock yet. Anyone on the east coast finding anything ealry?

I stopped by Walmart today in central Jersey and they had new GH figures out.  Passed on them.   other then that I've seen nothing.

It kind of sucks every since I found my BMF I havent seen a thing(that is new) on the pegs. It is kind of depressing but at the same time I am hoping that will just mean more on the shelfs come July 26. My olny question (of course directed at CDN collectors) is how good has the quantity of figures been on the first day of release? I know we dont get MM but we are basically just getting opening hour madness(I think..) is there usually a lot of product or am I gonna end up getting there only to see 2 of each box put out on the shelfs :-\

I'm sure that in August through December you are going to get whatever you want in the quantity you want it, no matter what you see in July.  By September this **** will be all over the place and then some.

That's what I'm hoping for.

I expect to get most of what I want from the 7/26 release, but it will be a few weeks after that before we start seeing anything newer than that. So none of us should really have a hard time at finding any of this.

Hit another Wal-mart at 11pm one nite and they had a full pallet of the new legacy items, but nothing hit the shelfs

I sorta wish the V-Wing had been a snazzy repaint instead of a re-issue...  Love the ship, just would like a nicer paintjob on it I guess.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: ctonra on July 14, 2008, 08:16 PM
so the ships are going to be $30.00 now?

I noticed that too...yikes! I sure hope not.

Today I went to Target and entered the Legacy DPCIs into the price scanner. Sure enough, they were in the stockroom. I asked if they could bring anything out for me, and the man I asked said he would. He came out two minutes later and gave me the whole 'we don't want your money until July 26th' thing. For those of you who have heard about this happening but have not yet experienced it for yourselves, I can tell you YES...it is just as enjoyable as it sounds.  ::)
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on July 14, 2008, 11:35 PM
And I did NOT notice that...  Guess I just scanned to boxes.

Holy ****.  A 50% price hike?  Uh...  Seems more than a  tad excessive if that's the case.  Methinks I'll be getting one of each too, if that's the case, and passing on many, many repaints of the future.  Nix the V-Wing repaint suggestion too if they're gonna be $30.  Piss on it...  Hasbro/Retail are getting greedy if they're gonna spike prices that much.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Nicklab on July 14, 2008, 11:41 PM
Hope those vehicle prices are only at WalMart.  That photo makes me want to run the vehicle DCPI at Target and see what the price point is for the assault vehicles.  I really want the Homing Spider Droid and V-19, but $30 each?  Ouch.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: jedi_master_sal on July 14, 2008, 11:42 PM
$20 vehicles now $30??? What happened to Hasbro's "business model"?

I realize retailers can se their own price, but if WM sets it at $30, either they will price themselves out of competition, OR every other retailor will follow suit and we the consumer will be screwed... :(

If it is $30, then that's going to add $40-60 to my ever growing total.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on July 15, 2008, 08:32 AM
That price tag may have been meant for the Clone Helmet so lets not panic just yet.....

FYI - I saw the new legacy packaging role play sabers and blasters at Wal-Mart, I scanned them and they were able to be purchased.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Darth_Anton on July 15, 2008, 09:17 AM
I doubt the price of the ships went up. In fact, I think people who purchased the ships already got 'em for $20.

I was able to pick up a full set of wave 2 yesterday from Target.

At my local Target, the DPCI still shows $20 for the ship assortment...

What havent you heard they are most likely going to be released next week aswell :P
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: David on July 15, 2008, 05:11 PM
It's still a rumor at this point. And I'm just asking. :P

If this is the wave he's talking about, then I'll know to budget for some of them too. Or I can just wait until tomorrow for Hasbro to confirm/not confirm this in their release day checklist.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on July 15, 2008, 10:37 PM
Dave, it's no rumor they are out already.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Darth_Anton on July 16, 2008, 09:16 AM
Yes the snow bunny wave. In fact, I picked up another set of just the army-builders of that wave; one each of the IG Droid, Quarren, Mon Calamari, Scuba Clone and 2 of the Gunner clone.

Damn. 7/26 just got a lot more expensive. :-\
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on July 17, 2008, 03:34 PM
SCORE!!!!!

Target was setting up when I went in and I picked up:

AT_TE (Box is not as big as I thought it was going to be)
V-Torrent Starfighter
Homing Spider Droid
The Fett Evo correction
Ten Numb Evo set x2
Animated Clone Trooper 1st Day issue
Saga2 Death Star Gunner in a very crusty package for $3.32! - The Best part of the trip!
$235.13 Total

No sign of the Falcon, the other 3 Evo sets, or Legacy basic figures of W1 & W2. They did have the new Legends asst with lockers nothing worth getting. I actually helped the Target guy open the cases, it was pretty funny. I hit a lot of stores today and this was my last stop. They will have more out later, I may go back. A nice jump start to midnight madness.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases

Let us know if you have any problems with the AT-TE in regards to the legs coming loose if you get a chance.

Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on July 17, 2008, 03:44 PM
Is that a common problem? I will not open it until the weekend but I will keep you posted.

FYI - I had zero trouble checking out.

It was a problem for Chewie.

I did get one though, and have to say that this is probably the best work I've seen Hasbro do so far, as far as an item for a diorama.  Regarding play value though?  Not as good as I thought it would be because the darn legs keep popping out of their sockets each time I move it.  As a kid, I'd probably be very frustrated with that.

Hopefully his was a dud.  No offense to you Chew   ;)
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: ruiner on July 17, 2008, 04:16 PM
Yeah, hopefully it was just Chewie.

I had planned on picking one of these up for a five year old but if it's really as bad as Chewie says, then I'll pass.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Dressel Rebel on July 17, 2008, 08:39 PM
Rebel Pilots x 2 and Imperial Pilots evolutions.

I firmly believe that Biggs should have just been a generic removable helmet TIE pilot.  This would have been the perfect army builder pack with that.  The EIII clone pilot is just lovely.

Is Biggs, bulky/bigger than the average SW figure DR?  Or just taller than the TIE Pilot OTC figure?

Post by: CorranHorn on July 17, 2008, 10:43 PM
I wound up walking out with a Padme Evolutions set and an AT-TE at a local Target this evening. The boxes are stamped with do not sell until 7/26 and apparently there are signs as well in the stockroom stating as such, but the dude who helped me out at one store seemed not to care - so early bird hunters could potentially score some new toys in advance. No luck on the TLC figures, they were scanning in for $7.99 so I didn't bother for now - they'll be everywhere anyways. Also I got to see 3 Evolutions cases, they were all Wv1R1 08 which contained one Padme, one Sith repack, and two Fett repacks. So no luck with the Pilot sets yet, but there's always tomorrow ;)

The AT-TE is a behemoth, I can't wait to put it together tomorrow, just ran out of time this evening. :(

I pulled Rebel Pilots and Imperial Pilots out of cases marked W1 R2 and W2 R1, I think.  The first case I opened up off a pallet at Walmart I believe was W2 R1 - and that was Padme x 1,  Fett x 1, Imperial Pilots x 1, and Rebel Pilots x 1 (B-Wing Farlander, Female twileki).  I think the Rebel Pilots pack I got with the Sullustan came from a case marked W1 R2, but it all happened so fast I didn't have time to snap a cell phone pick of the pallets.

Interesting day yesterday.

First Target: Walked in at opening with a guy from SSG, nothing was on the shelves which were reset and ready to go. We chit-chatted for a moment until a worker wheeled a cart FULL of SW toys toward us. "Saw you guys and thought you might want this" he said. YES! We were stoked. They had everything - all three assortments of figures, ships, evolutions... Another guy showed up and Bikercout1 called, I told him, "get over here now."

We started collecting our purchases. When the worker was opening his seventh box, he suddenly noticed the street date. We tried to convince him, to no avail, that it was meaningless. He started asking others what he should do. I turned to the SSG guy, who had his kid and a basked full of CW figs and said "go. Go now. They're going to take everything back." He did. He's the only one who walked out with anything. Then Bikerscout1 showed up and I had to give him the bad news.

Next Target: I went in the afternoon while my Daughter was at piano lessons. Low and behold, the shelves were stocked to the gills with Legends, some CW figs, Evolutions, Ships, AT-TE-s, Falcons, Fox's and the other accessory stuff. I grabbed an AT-TE, Spider Droid, V-19 and Padme Evo (W1R1 was all they got in) and checked out immediately, no problem.

Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on July 18, 2008, 01:11 PM
I went back to the Target where I scored my loot yesterday and they pulled every last piece into the back. Someone there caught notice. I was hoping to pick up the Padme Evo set.....guess I will have to wait for now.

danm all of you and your legacy finds/and some purchases, it's all about finding a squadron of Saga 2 yellow turd Naboo soldier for $3.24  >:(
did find a Juno for that price  :)
Whats up with the Targets around here you'd think they actually care about the street dates or something.

I was able to score the whole Legacy Wave 2 set at $3.32 each!  Couldn't believe it was such an error like that, but I ain't asking, I just bought them!  Found them all at a Target in NW Indiana.  No other finds all throughout the region.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: evenflow on July 20, 2008, 07:04 AM
Wow...3.32 is even better then the 4.64 i got them at. What sku did they ring up at. Mine came up at 0990 instead of 0991.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Darth_Anton on July 20, 2008, 09:45 AM
The DCPI should be 1990, the same as the 30AV collection.

I just bought my last wave 2 figure, another Quad Clone. Feels weird, but great, to be done one of the waves already.

Post by: Jesse James on July 21, 2008, 01:58 AM
I saw a Falcon tonight at Wal-Mart.  Didn't bother trying to buy it, as I'm thinking I may wait for a sale if I get this ship, but it certainly is very cool.  Very hefty box too.  Not terribly large though, to the point I'd call it a shelf hog...  I've seen far worse.

That was all there was out though so I just wandered on home from there.

Post by: Brian on July 22, 2008, 10:06 AM
I heard online that Shopko stores have been putting the Legacy/Clone Wars figures out early without any problems, so I checked our store out yesterday.  Sure enough, they had gobs of Legacy Wave 1 and Clone Wars Wave 1.  The only catch...$9.99 each.  At that price, I had to pass on grabbing everything (although I was tempted), so I just grabbed 2 Legacy figures to get something :).  I figured Yarna would be a figure that wouldn't be out a lot (not sure of casepacks myself), and they had only one - so I got that figure and a Han.  The Yarna has a 1st Day of Issue Sticker, and they had a fair amount of those available (more so in the Clone Wars line at this store).

I did not know that these were going to be out on 7/26, good to know. The Hoth Reconl is on the tops of my want list this year. I was skeptical of the Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol set, thanks for the warning, I may pass on that one.

At this point, what's the point of removing it not even a full 3 days out? It seems they left it out long enough it's almost a waste of time to try and follow the rules. You really did have a good run, sounds like you picked up just about everything.

Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Pete_Fett on July 24, 2008, 11:17 PM
Ok, here's everything I've gotten this week (going to include the Clone Wars stuff too).

1x BMF
2x AT-TE
1x V-19
1x Homing Spider Droid

1x Hoth Recon Patrol BP
1x Speeder Bike Recon BP
2x Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol BP

2x Padme Evolutions
1x Imperial Pilots Evolutions
1x Rebel Pilots #2 Evolutions

2x BD01 - Han Solo
2x BD02 - Luke Skywalker
2x BD03 - Chewbacca
2x BD04 - Leektar & Nippet
1x BD05 - Ak-Rev (1st Day Issue)
1x BD06 - Yarna (1st Day Issue)
1x BD07 - Bane Malor (1st Day Issue)
1x BD08 - Darth Vader w/Removeable 2-piece Helmet (1st Day Issue)
2x BD09 - Obi-Wan Kenobi in Clone Armor
3x BD10 - Scuba Clone
2x BD11 - Saesee Tiin in Clone Armor
2x BD12 - Snow Bunny Padme
3x BD13 - Lancer Droid
3x BD14 - Mon Calamari Warrior
2x BD15 - Quarren Soldier
3x BD16 - Clone Trooper w/Quad Canon

1x GH01 - Commander Gree (1st Day Issue)
1x GH02 - Kashyyyk Trooper (1st Day Issue)
1x GH03 - Battle Damaged Vader (1st Day Issue)
1x GH04 - EVO-Trooper (1st Day Issue)

1x CW01 - Anakin Skywalker (1st Day Issue)
1x CW01 - Anakin Skywalker (opener)
1x CW02 - Obi-Wan Kenobi (1st Day Issue)
1x CW02 - Obi-Wan Kenobi (opener)
1x CW03 - Yoda (1st Day Issue)
1x CW03 - Yoda (opener)
1x CW04 - Captain Rex (1st Day Issue)
1x CW04 - Captain Rex (opener)
2x CW05 - Clonetrooper
2x CW06 - General Grievous
2x CW07 - Battledroid
2x CW08 - R2-D2

2x Commander Fox

So tomorrow night at TRU Midnight Madness, I'm primarily going to focus on getting BD01 - BD04 and CW05 - CW08 1st Day Issue Variants. The extra regular versions I got of each of those I'll be returning once I replace them in my MOC collection with those eight 1st day issue variants. Just to have two of each army builder from Wave 2, I'll also try to snag one more Quarren. So nine figures in total.

I'm also hoping to score 2 Holo Grievous figures so I can be done with that exclusive and if they have the Dagger B-Wing, I'll grab at least two of them, if they don't, I'll focus on getting the rest of the Evolutions sets I need. If they have the B-Wings, I'll really just be looking to get one of the Rebel Pilots #1 Evo sets and then plan on picking up more pilot sets at a later date.

I'm glad I can go into TRU tomorrow night focused on a few select items as opposed to having to try and scramble to get everything.

Jeez all that before the release date, so what the hell is the piont of a release date, are they afraid we'll get some ultra secret from the movie on the cardback?  These are toys!

Sorry I'm going through SW withdrawl I've stillyet to see anything new out in the stores and I'm jonesing for tomorrow/tonight.

Great scores Pete congrats on all the good finds.

anyone know the case assortment for the evo packs?
So far out of all the early finds in my area not a single pilot set has been found. This is getting me pretty worried considering the pilot evo sets are my most wanted item for tommorow. :-\
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Pete_Fett on July 25, 2008, 03:43 PM
Actually, it was all picked up at two stops. A Target and a WalMart. That's why I was hoping there wouldn't be the A-Wing tomorrow. The nearest WM to me NEVER gets any of the exclusives, so I have to go to a WM 20 miles away.

I am definitely doing the midnight thing at TRU, but I was hoping to go home. Now I guess it looks like I'll be driving over to WM and sleeping in my car for a few hours before getting in line in front of that store around 5am. And all for just ONE item - the A-wing.

Oh well.

Yarna
Obi-Wan (Legacy)
Ilum Padme
Quad Cannon Clone
Leektar/Nippet
Scuba Clone
Leia/R2 GH set

Not a bad haul. Only one WM had their stuff out, so I was happy to come away with this haul. Hitting TRU tomorrow. I probably won't bother with Target unless they have the Padme Evo set.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on July 26, 2008, 02:51 AM
My TRU Midnight Madness was just that, insane madness! A surprising huge turnout with 50+ people made for a mad dash to get the figures. I am really glad I was there 2hrs early and had the help of a friend and was in the center of the figure pegs. I missed out on the Scuba Clone and there were no signs Battle Packs, Evo Rebel Pilots 2 or Imperial in the store.

I still managed to have a mighty $700.00 haul:

BMF
AT-TE
Homing Droid
V-Torrent

MM Haul:

- BMF
- Luke
- Han
- Chewie
- Bane Malar
- Yarna
- Ewok/Wokling
- Obi-Wan Clone Armor
- Quarren Warrior
- Scuba Trooper
- RH Vader
- TFU Vader
- Lancer Droid

Went to Wal Mart, no sign of the Evolutions sets or about half of Wave 2. I did see one Hot Wheels guy with a Snow Bunny Padme and a Quad Gunner but I think there was only one of each. No sign of the Mon Cals either.

$252 in damages, but the stories I have are priceless.

On my way to the gym this morning, I stopped into a Wal-Mart that didn't look like it had much of a crowd.  Plenty of BMFs & AT-TEs, a couple of the Hoth BP (Probot one), one Evolutions Pilot set with Ten Numb, a bunch of Fett Evolutions with the corrected armor, pretty much all of the starfighter assortment vehicles (only one Torrent, though), and lots of other crap.

I dropped $75, which made me sick, so I'm glad Jack spent almost ten times that.

I got:

Obi Wan Clone Armor (Cool figure, I wish the paint on my guy's face was a little better, but it was the best one I saw at the store).
Sandstorm Luke (I really, really like this Luke.  Probably my favorite Luke to date.  There's a pretty good DS2 outfit under the turban)
Yarna D'al Gargan (Sexy as hell)
Ak-Rev (haven't opened him yet, but looks cool)
Leektar & Nippet x 2 (sucker for Ewoks)
IG Lancer Droid x2 (haven't opened yet)
Scuba Clone (haven't opened yet)
Bane Malar (really cool figure, but seems kind of small).

The only figure I didn't see there was the Ilum Padme, but I already have one of those from the old BP that's okay.

Midnight Madness HAUL!

First let me point out that TRU figure prices were $6.99 each, not the $7.99 that was anticipated. That alone saved me more than $30.

Second, I got so much I had to think about what I wanted to open first. So, after a couple of minutes I decided on giving that honor to Yarna since I had waited for her for so long. (please post what you opened first for your midnight madness haul and if there was any reason for your choice-I'm just curious).

Okay so here we go:

Legacy Wv 1
Han X1
Luke X1
Chewie X1
Vader X1
Yarna X1
Ak-Rev X1
Ewoks (Leektar and Nippet) X2 (using the other for a custom)

Legacy wv 2
Obi-wan X1
Saesee Tiin X1
Padme X1
Clone (with quad gun) X1
IG lancer droid X3
Mon Cal warrior X2 (wanted 5)
Quarren warrior X2 (wanted 5)
Scuba trooper X5

Evolutions Padme X1
Evolutions Imperial pilots X1 (wanted 2)

missed both Rebel sets. In fact only one set was found by someone at my local TRU and I was the only person to have the sole Imperial set...

Galactic Heroes:
Jar Jar/Destroyer droid X1
Plo Koon/Captain Jag X1
Shaak Ti/Magnaguard X1
Slave Leia/Bar2-D2 X1

Set of 3 lightsaber stylus for the DS <--very cool, IMO

Ships:
AT-TE X1 YES!!!
Falcon X1 <--of course...
Homing Spider Droid X3
V-19 X1
B-wing X1

LEGO:
TRU exclusive Homing Spider Droid set

So other than a few extras and the Rebel Pilots evolutions, I had an amazing haul.

I showed up at my local TRU at 6pm! First in line of course. I was prepared with a line list for people to sign into so they could hold there place in line, in case they needed to go across the street to the Pizza Hut to use the bathroom. I made my own "visual wants list" using pics from the net. This was to benefit my fiancee so she new exactly what to look for. I went into the store a few times to check on the progress of the set-up and just chat with the workers, many of which I've known for years now. Next person in line didn't show until 8:30pm, it stayed slow with about 8 people up until 11pm, THEN finally the rush of people was on, and the line extended to just under 60 people. Many kids, which surprised me just a little. Not because of their interest, but because their parents would bring them out so late. I was very happy to see that though. The kids bought mostly LEGO and the animated stuff (along with ships) and the adult collectors went more for the Legacy stuff. It was a huge success for my local store as they either sold out of some things or were severely low in stock. It's both good and bad. Good because sales were great. Bad because they won't get a truck for about a week, so the shelves look kind of bare right now and the toys just hit.

I of course knew several people that were in line. Some being fellow local collectors from my local club, some friends for years now, one of which I hadn't seen in about a year, so that was very cool.

It was a blast and I held my perfect record of being first in line. It's not that I have to be the first to get the stuff, it's (for me) a way of showing loyalty to the line that I take the extra effort to be their early and hopefully first.

Anyway, when all was said and done, I got home around 1:15am. I only opened 6 figures. I was just too darned tired.

So for the finale...

Total spent: $720.74

I had $875 in gift cards and cash and would have spent it all had I been able to get the evo sets and the extra figs I wanted. Since I buy my gift cards from my local grocery chain that gives money off on gas at their gas stations per $50 you spend, I ended up racking up $2.50 per gallon of gas off the next time I use my "Fuel Perks."

Wow what a night!

Most likely the last one, and it was worth it!
-Sal

P.S. I forgot, a couple of my buds that were at TRU went up to the WM afterwards to look for stuff they missed. WM didn't put ANYTHING out!!! hah! Wow, did WM lose BIG last night in my area. And I know for a fact that there was at least 20 people there waiting for the stuff to be put out (a report I got by cell phone form one of those buds). Man, I would have been PSSD if I'd have waited all that time for nothing. I didn't bother to go out this morning. With such few things I need to get, I'm sure I'll find it in the next few weeks before the next waves of things show up.

Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on July 26, 2008, 12:01 PM
After hitting several stores I picked up 12 more Legacy figures, a ton of clearance stuff at Target and the highlight of my hunt at 7 stores:
Both of the Hoth Battle Packs! They only had onr of each.

The only thing I did not find were the Evolutions Rebel V2 & Imperial pilot sets. Most stores I went to today did not even have the stuff out, very frustrating when you wake up at the crack of dawn and the ***** not out.

Midnight Madness is not a children's sport...

I got to MM around 11PM and the line was probably about 20 deep at that point. Not too bad but I was only after a handful of figures. By the end I'm sure it was 50+. It was funny hearing mothers talk about the lines and of course there were collector clubs who were letting late arriving members cut in line so I never heard the end of the complaints from mothers. They just didn't have any idea what they were getting into. The only real dissapointment is it looks like TRU let their employees and family have first pick of stuff while we all waited outside. They were very understocked. Here's what I scored during the insanity.

Ak-Rev 1st day foil x1
Removable Helmet Vader x1
Yarna D'al' Gargan x1
Bane Malar x1
Leektar & Nippet x1
Holo Grievous x1 (I was told the store only got two cases and most people overheard in line were after this and the 1st day issue Captain Rex)

Once I heard of the Grievous shortage I planned on just getting in and out. I managed to be out in less than 10 minutes.

Today for the hell of it I stopped by Target at 8 in the morning. No line, the place was dead and we were the only ones there as they were putting stuff out. Picked up the following just because I could:

Removable Helmet Vader 1st day foil x1
Yarna D'al' Gargan 1st day foil x1
Bane Malar 1st day foil x1
Exclusive Commander Fox x1

They were a bit annoyed we were there but didn't complain too much.

We had to make a road trip so we hit a small Wal-mart today around 9 and I scored the following:

IG Lancer Droid x2
Clone Trooper x1
Clone Scuba Trooper x1
Padme Amidala x1
Mon Calamari Warrior x1
Captain Rex 1st day foil x2
Leektar & Nippet 1st day foil x1

They had a huge display that hadn't been hit very hard at all. They only had the one Padme though.

Last night had me concerned on what I'd find in the short term but everything I picked up this morning I was the only person there doing any star wars shopping. It was an odd change compared to MM. I was really only after Legacy but I managed to score everything I wanted.

The Walmart was the only place that had wave 2 figures but they didn't have any wave 2 foils. I couldn't believe that there wasn't a single person at Target this morning though. They had all the evolutions too.

I'm going to hit these stores up later tonight too just to see if they get picked over through the afternoon or if this line is going to sit. Target was the only store we hit that had them at $7.99. Maybe that's why they were quiet.

Post by: snuffx on July 26, 2008, 01:33 PM
I went to WM at noon today and they had so many figures. They had all the Clone Wars figures and a lot of Legacy figures except Han Solo. Very few had the first day sticker. There was a huge floor display with figures and vehicles. They had no evolution assortments.And no Saga Legends. I was to tired to go last night so I thought today everything would have picked over, but there was alot still there. I bought just the Legacy Obi-Wan, because I was in a huge hurry. I think my WM turns off the AC so people won't stay to long. I'm going back tonight and get everything else I need.

I just said  "NO" today  ;D I bought NOTHING! lol!  I did talk to people that were spending 300-400 worth of stuff.  I felt great to be just a window shopper for once. I just was not that impressed with what I saw, the BMF is cool but for 150 it better be..

Post by: jedi_master_sal on July 26, 2008, 08:26 PM
I went out again this afternoon to see if I could pick up some of the scraps left from my wants list. I managed to score the Hoth Patrol Battle pack (Han and Chewie one). Though I apparently missed the Hoth Biker set (I had received a tip form a local collecting friend about the battle packs being there, but didn't get there in time to get both of them as he reported to me that they were both there).

I got a call at about 6pm from another collecting friend. He found more figs at my local WM. Apparently there were more a few aisles down  from the main display and this time it WAS Legacy figs. (I had been there earlier in the day and either these weren't out or I missed them-but on a good note I found the Rebel I evolutions set and it rang up for only $15!) He picked me up the extra Mon Cals and Quarren I wanted, so I'm totally caught up on Wv 1 & 2 Legacy. In fact all I need is the Hoth Biker ste and the Rebel II Evolutions set (which I haven't seen anyone else reporting being found) and I'm totally caught up (for about two weeks until the next waves of new stuff roll in.

Including the two sets I got today and the figures I'll get from my buddy tomorrow, that's another $82.39 for a total of $803.13 spent this weekend.

I was completly pissed off with Hasbro Canada yesterday.
I went to 4WM, 2 superstores, 2 zellers and 2 TRU. Only 1 TRU had anything while 1 of the zellers had 1 box of Legacy one out. Best part was that was the only case of Legacy figures between both stores. TRU only got the vehicles, evo boba/rebelpilot1, clone wars wave 1, and saga legends. I am happy with what I was able to find dont get me wrong BUT for such a big day that Hasbro was promoting they did jack s**t for us Canucks.

my haul did include
Clone wars figures:
Ani
Obi
Yoda
Grevious
BD
R2
Clone trooper x3

Legacy:
Yarna
Bane
Ak-rev
Ewoks
Vader.

Rebel Pilot set 1

Half the stores didnt even know what I was talking about. And the hologrevious...nonexistant up here.

Some more haulage today, as I went around to other stores:

Saesee Tiin in armor
Mon Cal Warrior

Padme Evolutions
CW Grievous
CW Clone Trooper

I found everything I was looking for except a holo Grievous.  :-\

Post by: Rob on July 27, 2008, 12:53 AM
I managed to find everything except the Mon Cal and Quarren soldier today. 

So, I picked up one of each Legacy figure except those two, one homing droid or whatever it's called, and one of each of the four evolutions packs. 
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on July 27, 2008, 01:16 AM
I could not find (though the scalpers had them a-plenty at the Toy Show today):

-Rebel Pilots 2
-Imp. Pilots
-Clone Scuba Trooper
-Padme (CW2d)
-Sae Sae Tinn w/Armor
-Ewok w/Wokling

ALl those were pretty impossible to find for me, and I'm bummed out on the Evolutions sets as they were two I was probably most looking forward to actually.

However, I did get the first Pilot set for $16 because of a misprice at WM.

I was also extremely glad to see $6.77 and $6.99 figures between WM and TRU respectively.  Screw Target in the ear with a spork because they are selling for $7.99...  Their figures can rot on pegs till they decide to "compete" a bit for my dollar.

Sure it's only a buck, but $6.99-ish figures were a sight for sore eyes (and thinning wallets) to all of us I think.

Ironically Rob, I saw the two alien troopers.  If you want I can try to nab them for you...  PM me if you need me to.

TRU was the ONLY store here with Wave 2 as far as I know...  WM/Target only had Wave 1 of both lines.

VERY few Legends figures on pegs here...  I almost wanted to buy one just to see what the weapons pack was all about and if it is indeed what we pictured here earlier on JD.

Oh and I also picked up...

-1 AT-TE
-1 V-19
-1 Spider Droid/Homing Droid
-1 Hoth Recon
-1 Hoth Speeder Bike/Patrol
-1 Bane Malar (only wave 1 figure I picked up)

I didn't make it to TRU to see my buddies unfortunately.  Exhausted from all day Friday and couldn't handle the trip out.  Went to WM nearby and saw a scalper hoarding stuff that I know, but beyond wave 1 WM didn't have much.

Really bummed on those 2 Evo sets for the most part.  I think basics I'll be ok on.  The Evolutions sets have all been fairly rare here though, so I'm a little fearful I may miss those.  They had them at the show as I noted, and for $50+...  Disgusting.

But that's life...

Kudos to TRU's event(s).  They really seemed to have their poo together other than I hear there was confusion on holo Grievous figures.  Other stores were a mixture of confusion on what the actual date/time was to put stuff out, and people refusing to put it out till tomorrow morning (Target).

I lucked out at the store(s) I visited Saturday morning I guess.

Oh, and the Homing Droid and V-19 should be both nominated for toys of the year...  THe value is unmatched for the quality you get.  You really have to open these...  The V-19 even has a control stick...  FIrst I think I've ever seen that done in a starfighter from Hasbro.  True high quality work.

Post by: Rob on July 27, 2008, 01:41 AM
Thanks for the offer Jesse, but I'm not sweating it at this point.  It's only day 1.  I'm sure there will be plenty to go around.

This isn't the place to ask, but is there a good list anywhere of which ones the build-a-droid astromechs are and which movies they go with?  Or is Hasbro making them up?

And from the looks of your post I have a little more to pick up...

-1 Hoth Recon
-1 Hoth Speeder Bike/Patrol

With being out of the loop the last few months, I didn't know about any of the new stuff so imagine my surprise when we stopped off at a Walmart coming home and I found the Evolutions Padme pack!!  :o

Then, I found a picture of another Padme on the back of Saesee Tiin but I couldn't find her on any of the pegs.  I did pick up a battle damaged Darth Vader and a Captain Rex (though I don't know what the blue first day of issue sticker is all about).  Vader and Saesee came with parts of a droid so I am going to have to write down what I got and see if I can build one with the few other figures I might want.  Looks like this Walmart had all the figures on the back of the packages ('cept Pamde) as well as biker scout vehicle two packs and some other two packs as well as Han and Chewie and C3PO packages, a spider droid package with some figures (can't remember who) and all sorts of other ships and stuff.   All in all, it was a lot of fun to dig through the pegs like the old days.  I now have the family on the hunt for Padme  ;).

Well said on the price differences, JJ.  It was a blessing in disguise that Target was the first store I visited and they didn't have a single wave 1 figure (but tons of wave 2 and Clone Wars, none of which I'm buying).  I went to WM soon after and was pleased to see the figures for a dollar less (and tons of the wave 1!).  I couldn't find Evolution at all at WM though, and there weren't any Rebel pilots #2 at Target.  Oh, I forgot that I didn't see the Hoth heroes BP anywhere either.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: jedi_master_sal on July 27, 2008, 11:47 AM
picked up some figures from a friend who was looking out for me yesterday.

As well I scored two of the Hoth Biker sets.

So all I need is the Rebel II evo set.

Anyone needing the Reb I set? I can find those fairly easy. If so, then let's trade. You get the Reb II for me and I'll get the Reb I for you.

with this last purchase for the weekend, my total reached $855.93. So I just made it within budget.

So went out today to try and find the last figure I need from this wave (Darth Vader). I go to the WM the next town over and there is nothing, I mean no display no left over figures nothing. I asked a sales person and she tells me that they are not allowed to put them out yet. I said what? The figures came out the 26th today is the 27th. So goes on to tell me that the figures would not be relaesed until 8/2/2008. After trying to convince her that what she was saying made no since I left whithout anything. So I then went to the K-Mart in my town and they have nothing just like the other WM. I ask and they tell me that the figures wouldn't be put out until the 3rd of August. That is what I expect from K-Mart. It's no wonder no one shops there. So at the end of the day I wasted gas and still don't have my figure.

Found the last 3 figures from Legacy wave 1 I need at the Zellers that let me down on saterday. I called before I went and they said they had just finished putting up the end cape at noon. They only had Legacy wave 1, 1 spider droid(which was odd to see) a bunch of lightsabers, a lot of Fett evo sets(have a feeling these will peg..btw all had the logo)2 sith evos and 2 padme evos.

I left with Luke,Han, and chewy. I wanted the padme set but since money is tight I will wait till the other 2 pilot sets come out first as those are still on my most wanted list.

Whoa- didn't know about the K-Mart sale; how long is it supposed to last?  I wonder if I should have gone there instead of WM yesterday, but I do still need an Evolutions set and a BP...

Holy crap! I will but the BMF an AT-TE to get another AT-TE for free. I have to check K-Mart tonight....glad I did not open the big vehicles yet!
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Daigo-Bah on July 29, 2008, 06:15 PM
Yeah, the stock at my K-Mart, at least when I checked, wasn't enough to have made the sale worthwile to me (didn't buy the AT-TE).  They didn't have any Evolutions sets, BPs, or even many of the figures I wanted.  They may have already sold them, but I doubt it!

Today I found the Hoth BP; started opening it and will give my thoughts over in the other thread.

K-Mart adjusted my purchase from last week of three might muggs to the price of two, but didn't have anything else I was really interesterd in getting, mostly Clone wars and I'm just not into the animated figs.  I would have gone for the Evolution Fett set, but they didn't have the corrected version.

picked up Rex (foil but no sticker..gotta love Canadian packaging) and another animated clone trooper. I really love the look of the troopers. The squad size I wanted changed a lot before july 26 but after owning 4 of them now I know for a fact that I need at least 4 more, the battle scene on yahoo and the look sold it to me. :-X

That may not be much of a bargain.  I heard rumor that the BMF Falcon is $200 at Kmart, so you're not saving as much as you might think.  No idea what they charge for an AT-TE or if they'll even honor the buy 2 get 1 free on large vehicles.  :P

Bought an older figure at Target yesterday, VTSC Leia. I mention it because it was fraudulently returned and apparently, Target has the ability and the will to track down certain fraudulent returns.

Basically, someone returned the VTSC Leia with a printed mighty mugs UPC stuck over the original UPC. Since Mighty Mugs have a low return rate, Target is checking the return log coupled with the surveillance video. They were making a big deal of it, so I would imagine they weren't feigning interest. They also said they were watching people who blatantly take advantage of clearance by returning large quantities of toys just before close and then show up to re-purchase them first thing in the morning.

I finally found my Quarren soldier today.  The only new fig I had not seen yet.  I think the feet may have been put on the wrong legs.  The longest toe of each foot is to the outside.  I can't tell for sure, but the picture on the back seems to have the long toes to the inside.  I'm not concerned that it might be some rare error or anything, but he does seem to have a little trouble standing.  Are others finding the same thing with their Quarrens?

Finally got around to "playing" with my Scuba clones when I moved the shoulder on one of them and the pin for joint in the chest is about to break right off inside.  I could understand if I'd been playing too rough but all I did was try to swivel it up.  Does anybody know what the return policy is on the figures AFTER they've been opened, never returned one after being opened?  Anybody know what store would be more then likely friendlier to collectors?  I've bought at least one from all the 3 major stores so I have reciepts to return to them.

Was also able to get 1 more anime clone trooper
On the side note TRU had about 20 B-wings on the shelves at $40 a piece. With how neatly they were stacked it makes me wonder if they have even sold any lol.

My sister just called from buffalo. She was able to pick up a Wave 2 Obi in clone gear for me :) and a Holo GG figure. She also said she is gonna go back to WM tommorow to pick up a 501st clone for me :) no luck on the rebel evo set though.

Picked up a few figures at WalMart over the weekend just for the sake of completing second Build-a-Droids.

Since I have opened 4x each of the Quad Canon Clone, Scuba Clone and Lancer Droid, I have three spare green R4's missing a leg. So I grabbed a second opener Obi-Wan to put at my desk at work and to allow me to display a third-leg-less version of the green R4.

Same thing is the case with the second wave's R7 - I've opened 3x each of the Mon Calamari and Quarren warriors so just to complete a second R7, I grabbed my second openers of Tiin and Padme - so I have now bought every figure in wave 2 at least three times. I told myself I wasn't going to buy un-necessary figures with this line, like I did with getting extra figures to fill in a second coin album with the TAC.

Unfortunately, my will power to hold out, didn't last long.

I also grabbed a second Ak-Rev so I could complete a second drum. I bought two Umpass-Stay figures so I could have a complete drum last year, so now I have two complete drums. I gave the extra leg to one of the green R4s from Wave 2.

I will say though, I definitely like this year's pack-in (droid parts) better than last year's (coins).

Picked up Disturbance on Lars Homestead and NFC shipped my Wave 3 BAD case.

FYI - Next week I will have an extra Jodo Even Piell and Dooku if anyone is interested. If not I am taking them back with some Target receipt I have.

Just a miscellaneous note, I was in rite-aid picking up a prescription and for kicks and giggles, I always check to see what they have SW figure-wise. They had some TAC and Legacy, for $10.99, but the sticker label still lists them as Kenner Star Wars figures.

I got General Kenobi, the Scuba Trooper and the Cip-Quad trooper over the weekend.  It sure seems that Albany, NY is the only area to not have the repaint wave yet.  I haven't been hunting super hard, but I haven't seen it in any of the stores I've been in (KB, Target and Walmart).

Post by: Brian on September 22, 2008, 09:30 AM
I found and picked up one of the new-ish Comic Packs this weekend, Fenn Shysa and Dengar.  That's the first I've seen of the Wave 2 (and beyond) packs around here, and it was at TRU.  It seems like most of the stores around here still have 30AC comic packs on the pegs for the most part.

Made some scores this morning...

2 x Coruscant Clones

Legacy Wave 3 case of basic figures from NFC
TAC McQuarrie Vader (The odd find)
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on September 26, 2008, 04:47 PM
I've gobbled up some Legacy Wave 2 Scuba Clones lately.  Love that figure...  Perhaps one of Hasbro's best considering the number of parts comprising it, and a SA Clone that's 100% new.  It's still a tough find here though his case-mates have almost all become relatively easy finds (save for Tinn and Amidala who are sporadic yet).

Found my first Wave 3 figure, Holo Dooku, at Target today. He's actually very cool, and worth every penny unlike most previous holographic figures.

I also bought my first Rebel Pilots v.1 set, it's an awesome bunch of figures. The Sullustan really makes me look forward to finding the second set with the human B-Wing Pilot, it's a terrific sculpt. :o :D

I picked up the Platform Clone with Silver droid arm part (I was not away that they were updating that figure's BAD part so soon) & the 2 new Battle packs at Wal-Mart today (Endor Assault & Monastery). The Endor Han head is the best likeness to date. It makes the set worth picking up.

I saw the new TRU Arc today and happily passed on it. A little Wampa decal is not worth paying $15 more for a $30 ship. All Wal-Marts around here have plenty of A-Wings and Lekku Gunships spilling in the aisles. I think the high price of those items are turning off a lot of people. No sign of TFU sets yet....

Over the last three days, my local Target has slowly been putting out figures from the wave 4 revision case, so I've managed to get Commander Faie (Thursday), Stass Allie (Friday), and Bail Organa (today), along with the Coruscant Clone Trooper (with silver RA-7 arm).  The only other figures from that case that I've seen were a single Kashyyyk Trooper (with a leg, I think) and the RH Vader (I think he may have had the other leg; I can't remember for sure).

I wish Hasbro would ship the cases with two of each figure first, and then ship out the revision cases.

I was hoping to find Cody and ashoka but I had no luck, and apparently according to the guy I asked at TRU to check the back they had no more even though he literally walked in through the door turned as if he thought I couldnt see him and walked back out  ::) But owell I got till december to find those figures anyways cause I am having doubts that we will see wave 3 of CW and wave 4 of legacy before christmas.

Darth Vader/Grand Moff Trachta
Darth Vader (White Armor)/Sniper Princess Leia
Xizor/Princess Leia
Grand Admiral Thrawn/Talon Kardde

Nice sets for the most part. Like I Thrawn/Kardde set the best. Trachta is a nice figure, but the Vader is a throw-away. Could have lived without the White Vader set, always thought that ending to the Infinities ROTJ was kind of lame.

Just scored two each of the Target UBPs.

They already had the shelf tag up, but nothing out. I ran the DPCI, it said they had them so I asked someone to bring some out, which they happily did!!!

They brought out two cases, said that was all they had, so I took 'em and checked out fast before someone tried to stop me.

Very happy to have these out of the way!

scored me Luke/Emp at Target. 3 Peg full of Imp Knights, the Mando twins, even a Swan set and right in front in all it's glory Luke/Emporer. Haven't opened yet literally just got back from lunch/Target and am back at work. Luke wide stance is about the same as the 30AC Rebel Sentry/Endor Vanguard so it's not too bad, but that capes got to go. Didn't realize it before but it's a DE2 comic that it comes with. Lukes face looks old, but that just might be the mold or just mine. The one from the Evo looks better.


Side note they had the Yoda Cruscant/Obi 212th packs on a end cap under the Joe UBH display with 2 clones from each pack missing, about 5 pack total.  I thought to myself that it seemed wierd and I could've sworn that there were 4 clones per pack.  Antway walked over to the actual SW isle, where I found my comic pack  :grin:, and there was a Yoda pack with all 4 clones.  I walked back over to the endcap low and behold same pack.  I told a CS girl that happened to be walking by, at first I don't think she believed me but when I showed her the other box that had all the clones in it she was "Oh my gosh" like. 

All that and I originally went in there for ant spray.

I've noticed that at the 24 hr Walmart I frequent, the only time there are any employees in the toy section is early in the morning when they are stocking the shelves, coincidently this is also the only time that employees offer to help me find something, when there happen to be cases of toys sitting on pallets (I'm reading the names on the boxes to see if there is anything I might want to buy).  I'd expect they have people working during the day to straighten the shelves, etc. but those people never ask if I need help, odd.

I got in the mail the last of the Droid Factory sets (Darth Vader) and I found TFU set with Palpatine and the Grey Stormies.

3x Destroyer Droid
2x C-3PO
2x IG-86 Droid

A friend of mine already grabbed me a Plo Koon figure so now I'm down to just needing another IG-86 so I can have two of them open.

It's been awhile since I posted on JD due to my recent life changing events but I have still managed to keep up with the Jones's in regards to SW collecting. Over the past week I picked up:

UBP Sarlacc Pitt
CW Blue Trade Tank x2
Faie/Vos Comic pack
Skywalker/Clone Palpatine comic pack
CW Obi-Wans Delta Fighter (I am thinking I may return it)

I am kinda more excited about Joes more than the latest SW offerings. The recent releases really have not wet my pallet for more. Until I see some more OTC love my interest in SW is beginning to wane after 18 years. The Sarlacc was 50% great the rest not so much, nevertheless it was OTC and that made me happy. I passed on the CW UBP and plan on passing on more prequel stuff.

so i guess I am all caught up in terms of CDN SW figures. no wave 3 CW and wave 4 legacy for us. :-\ owell all I wanted from those waves were grevious,ventruss,and 3po and I am sure the clone wars figures will be repacked and grevious is case filler for the ANH wave so in a way I am happy...cause now I can pass on the rest of wave 4 with no regrets :)

Stumbled on a cache of Clone Wars Wave 3 so I used the opportunity to squad built the two droid in the wave, so I grabbed:

4x IG-86
2x Destroyer Droid

So now I have four of each open and one MOC. One of the IG-86 figs I bought the other day broke upon opening so I took it back and replaced it with another fig since that store didn't have anymore in stock.

Over the past two days I've also picked up:

1x Legend of the Saga 5-pack
1x set of K-mart TLC tins
1x Shield Generator Assault BP

Hmmm....

Legacy: some comic packs & commander Bly, plus some repacked clone phase 1 & officers

I just bought 3 single figures from ep IV-V-VI...all articulated & helmet come off...specialy the Hot figure hard to find in lots & articulated.

I have decided to stop Buying lots of the same figure untill I collect all variants of Clones & troopers from diferent units & squads, thats what had impeded me to have them all already...I'll keep the singles then I can hunt for lots or sell mine <----Darn! I love my RC squads...not those lol

But I will keep buying Battlepacks etc from the new lines 2008/9

First time I've seen him, and I haven't seen anyone else find him yet, though I'm sure some one can copy their post and insert it to make me look foolish (here's some space:)




But I found the Clean Sandtrooper w/ Black Pauldron at Target today.  That's the figure that Adam Pawlus (i think) got one of, but then was never released in the 30AC line.

Hmm I bought other of those elsewhere, it resulted that is from the Tin Commemorative line: Episode IV Commemorative Tin Collection  , Vader also has remobable helmet, with young Anakin face.

If the one u found at Target is not from the 30th Anniversary but 2008 Legacy...wow thats great news!!!...but if its from the 30th, that one come with a Spear, & cant remove the helmet.. it still nice though...I saw one that still remain at Walmart.. perhaps is gone already... I dont have it.

No, I'm talking about the one with a black pauldron.  The only place I can recall posting a picture if the otheR Site.

http://www.rebelscum.com/TACSLsand3.asp

If I recall correctly the only clean versions that made it to retail release in the US that were clean (no dirt) had either an Orange or White Pauldron.  This new Saga Legends release was expected last year, but due to miscommunication with the factory, the black version didn't make it into the 30AC line, and as a result was promised in the Legacy Collection Saga Legends.

Did you see the Snowtrooper? if so I may have to check tomorrow dought not all locations are the same.

I just want Snowtroopers for now, just bought 10 VOTC Snowtroopers online to save on gas & time now I will have 12 of them (not much), but the good thing about SL Snowtroopee is that does come with the box with extra guns for clones.

There'll always be good waves of OT stuff.  Just gotta put up with the PT and EU stuff in the meantime...  Fortunately for me, I like it all so I'm in hog heaven these days.  My only gripe are the lacking knee joints on figures, especially EU ones.  Otherwise I'm usually pretty geeked when I see almost anything new.

Hell the Marvel crap has even trailed off a little.  I couldn't be happier to see that.

Not so much a purchase, but I saw the comic pack with Lando and the Blue colored stormtrooper at a local Target the other day.  Uhmm, wasn't that a Walmart exclusive??

Oh, I did find the Biggs, Snowtrooper and Shocktrooper Mighty Muggs though :)

Picked up the Jawa w/ WED and Obi-Wan yesterday. These are a little too expensive for me to buy the whole wave at one time, unfortunately.

----------------> The Walmart Ripping Price Strikes Back! <---------------------------

I couldn't belive or bare another price up... Now Battle Packs is $23.97, making it $25 after taxes  >:(......Since  here still not sign of a darnet wave 5 or ANH, then I didn't have another choice than to go with it cuz I really like TESB-Hoth Troopers  & found a bunch of them and bought them for my Hoth Army Build.

Today I saw few Re-relases but not in all stores, of: Vehicles/V-Wind and Tie Fighter(No the Vader one) at Target...  Battlepacks: MF Crew, CW Recon Biker Scout,  SL Hoth Speeder Bike Patrols ... Comic Pack Expanded Universe/ Darth Talon etc, Clone Emperor & Luke, Faie & Vos, Durge & Luke, Xisor & Leia.


The Good thing is that in some Targets the Vehicles went down to $19 or $18. something.

Again not wave 5 or 6 Snowtrooper...for Hoth's sake!  >:(

Finaly arrived at one of my Walmarts.

I got wave 5: Luke,Han,Ben Kennolly, and the only 3 Spacetrooper avalible.

Later I will get the 4 creatures to complete the Droids, but I need to recover money to put back to my credit card.

BTW: at least I have 2 sets of R5-A2 head and front leg for trade, I need few parts for other wave droids...

I will try now if the heads of Kir & Jax from Crimson Empire fits to one of these ANH troopers.

I just ordered the New Rancor from Target. I do not feel like hunting as used my free $5.00 gift card to offset the shipping which pretty much made it the retail price.

Via HTS and WM, I've picked up the entire Legacy Wave 5 (ANH) over the past week+ (and a few extras).  Really great wave.  Its sort of strange around here right now, the WMs have nothing but Legacy/Legends "realistic" figures, and Target has only Clone Wars figures (and 1 Yarna).  Luckily both have the newest waves, so that's a nice surprise.

Scored the Jawa with Treadwell droid today.  The Jawa is a nice revisiting of last year's Jawa.  And the new accessories are very cool.  But the Treadwell droid is just fantastic!  I think it's easily on par with the POTJ FX-7 and the more recent FX-6 droids.  The level of articulation on the arms is remarkable, especially since it's at the Basic Figure price point.

The 3 variant Comic Packs has come in a big wave  at two Walmarts that I visited today :P maybe tomorrow I will find more spacetroopers in other locations, I want at least 10 or just keep the 5  & end with it, forgot that I have a huge bill in april  >:( :)

Not really a "recent purchase", but I didn't want to start a new thread.  I stopped by TRU last night (actually looking for Marvel stuff), and they seemed to be mid re-set, and had moved (and greatly expanded) the Star Wars section.  They didn't have anything new really, but I thought it was interesting to see with other retailers maybe slimming down their SW section to make room for the various summer movie lines - TRU (at least here) seems to have doubled the peg space.

Unexpectedly came across the Wedge/Bothan 2-pack today.

The Bothan is really really nice, and I would army build, if it weren't for the piece of crud that is the Wedge figure packed in with it.  Wedge's legs aren't even, and the lack of ankle articulation makes it impossible to correct.

Man if this were a Bothan 2 pack, I'd go nuts.  Like with the Amanin pack  :D

Didn't someone say that the Wedge legs were the sucky "Training Clone" legs again?  If so, someone really has to go over to china and smash that mold so they can't use those legs again to ruin more figures in the future...  :P

I'm not surprised if they had it dusted off to use for that multi-pack, but I agree it's a horrid choice and Hasbro needs to abandon those horrific legs.

For me, the Wedge is boring though anyway.  The Bothan's the prize of the set...  Those uniforms RS wore in the comic were hideous to begin with.

Agreed - almost like they were going for something along the lines of the Star Trek-ification of Star Wars - sorry, I know that's a horrible way to describe it. I always thought it was ridiculous for Rogue Squadron to even have "dress" uniforms. The Star Wars universe strikes me as the kind of place that really doesn't give a **** what a pilot wears when he's not protecting your ass.

We stopped by the "across town" Wal-Mart this weekend, and it was overflowing with the exclusive comic packs (while our closest store has none currently).  Anyways, I picked up the Ewok 3 pack and the Amanin pack, and hope to go back to get the pilots set eventually if possible.  They did seem to have plenty of all three, at $12.88 each.

I picked up a Yavin BP and the CW Jabba pack at Target over the weekend, I was happy to find those.  The $23.99 price did sting a little, but the Yavin set was cool enough it seemed worth it.  Jabba isn't too bad either really - I'm just ready for an all-new realistic style version.

Yavin BP - Target.

$23.99 is a little steep, but this is a good one so I went for it.  That Hangar Tech is fabulous.  Love the cart.  The droid's okay.  The X-Wing pilot sucks.

Just barely worth the loot for me, I would have passed if it were any more expensive than this.

Grabbed 1x of each from ESB wave yesterday morning.  Nice to see them recycle some semi-popular figs from earlier waves, but they should have gone back to 2x of each fig for this wave or at least included a second hoth trooper.

There is a 2x each (http://www.entertainmentearth.com/aff-home.asp?id=HA-807301583&number=HS87535F) case for this wave.  Hasbro has been pretty good about making these available via the on-line sellers since they know many collectors who order by the case would like 2x sets.  ;)

Walmarts across the country have been getting in the cases with the 'skirted' Hoth Trooper and the 'champange' colored U-3PO droid pieces.

"Champange" vs. "Silver" U-3PO pieces?!?!

I got a case of Wave 6 from an online retailer and I would consider the U-3PO from that case definitely silver.

Now I have to go check these new parts vs. the figure I already have....

If you're an opener I can see wanting the champagne, but as a non-opener I am fine having the package tell me it is U3PO. Buying a whole new set to have two or hassle with the exchange just isn't worth it to me. You're welcome for my two cents  ;)
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Pete_Fett on May 15, 2009, 10:51 PM
Well as it turns out it looks like by sheer luck, I now have both a "silver" and a "champange" U-3PO so I'm good.

Here's the weird thing - the "silver" one came out of the set of figures I picked up at WalMart this week. My "champange" one came from the case of figures I bought online, and had for almost a month.

So which version came first? The info on that otheR Site forum indicates that the "champange" color pieces came from WM while his "silver" piece came from Target. In contrast, my entire "silver" figure came from a set purchased at WM.

So I have to wonder if there is any rhyme or reason with regards to the coloring. One thing is for sure, if you're not lucky enough to find this entire wave all at once, open up the figures you find first and then bring them with you while you're shopping so you'll be sure to pick up all six pieces of the same tint.

That's what I thought when I saw these on the shelf. I doubled checked the tag said $19.99 so I was ready to contest if the scanner said otherwise but I did not have that problem. After Tax 2 vehicles were $43. ## so I was very happy. It might be the last time.

Wave 6, finally! :)  One WM I visited this evening had a large number of them actually.

Also over the weekend I picked up a 2nd Vulture Droid at Target before they realize their prices are $19.99 still.  I also nabbed two more Scramble on Yavin packs giving me 4, which I may stop at now.  While I'd love more, the price is killing me.  If these wind up various places during a sale, I'm in for one or two more.  I may consider caving and getting a 5th, but for now 4 is sufficient for me.  I'll just hope the techie gets released as a basic figure in Legends at some point.

Saw some Saga Legends on the new red cards at Wally World.  Definitely smaller.  I like the cards much more than the current design, but since these are all figures available right now (and for the last two years) I didn't buy any.

Walmart twice and Target twice.

But it has not hit en masse yet, by mid-July I bet it will be all over the place.

And we'll be back here freaking out that we have barely seen Wave 7 yet.

EDIT:  After I posted this today I found a few cases of Wave 6 put out at Walmart and they had a couple Hoth Rebels left.  Most I've seen so far.

Also saw the Saga Legends in the new packaging.

Saw the Ugnaught at RiteAid (a drug store) for $12.49.   Which is pretty much the same price I could pay a scalper on ebay too.  So I'm not sure that counts as a sighting officially.

Not sure why most of you guys are having such a hard time with w6, but hopefully you'll find it before w7 shows up.  I think I finished off w6 like two months ago.

Been finding the new red/white Legends, but only at WM so far - and no I didn't buy any.

Probably because you live where Target is headquartered, and that's generally always a bonus to finding things since their distribution there is better overall it seems.

Branching out to the rest of the country, and it's nowhere near as good.

Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on June 22, 2009, 06:04 PM
That's becaues of shipping though, generally...  Usually where a coroporation is headquartered though, there is some "bonus" to the distribution system.  If you look around it's not just Pittsburgh having trouble finding Wave 6 in any kind of quantity...  It's a lot of places.  The West Coast got them first, which is pretty routine...  They haven't hit every area in any abundance though since, but rather it's been spotty where some areas get a lot and others are getting little...  It seems like the places with the bigger distribution hubs seem to have gotten them in abundance (The midwest?).

The rest of the country where the hubs are more spread out seem to be shorted...  I have a couple friends in the Florida area that haven't gotten them in any quantity, friends in Ohio, etc.  It just happens like that sometimes.  Us on the East Coast tend to know that all too well.

However that's also why it's frustrating to hear someone in Phoenix or something telling you you're just not looking hard enough, when they can find it and you can't. ;)  That seems to be something people don't understand I've found over the years with the hobby.  Distribution can stagnate like it currently has.  I remember that happening with the original Target Y-Wing...  "You just aren't looking hard enough", when in reality our stores literally got one case per store, and sold out immediately. 

I figure Wave 6 will break through at some point, but I've found card transitions, which we're in the middle of, tend to be the back-up point for the line in the areas where distribution centers are maybe a bit more spread out to their limits.  So far though, only two WM's around Pittsburgh have gotten them in as near as anyone can tell.  No Target stores at all, and none at TRU.  That's why it's ironic that, at times, KM around here can surprise you.  Sometimes they're the only place to get a wave in...  Unfortunately they're also about $10 a figure.   :-\

i I picked up more wave 7 AOTC (Minus Anakin/Obi) at Hasbro Toy Shop and used the SW2009 Promo that actually worked. They also have Wave 6 in Stock right now. The Only Figures they did not have was Concept Anakin & the Hoth trooper.

Got my two cases of the AOTC wave so I  *think* I'm done with the Legacy collection Blue/White figures.

I also picked up the first twelve Saga Legends figures in the 2009 packaging (smaller cards, white/orange design) at a local store.

Does anyone know if the Saga Legends Han Solo and Chewbacca figures were ever released on the Blue/White cardback or are they only coming out in the 2009 packaging?

They were/are only being released on the new card back. There is some speculation that there will be a running change on the Chewbacca as they used the "wrong" head. i would like to see this in person to see if they used the bandaged leg as well. i will be picking that one up just because he is technically a new figure.


Also to get back on topic I picked up some fodder for customs:
Wisolea
Braniac
Captain Needa

I am doing my part ot help the Legacy line by buying multiples ;)

That's really disappointing.  Hopefully they do make a "running change" and include the EB or VOTC Chewie at some point instead.  It isn't that the TLC Chewie is necessarily a bad figure, but just horribly inaccurate for the Mynock Hunt Chewie.  I'm sure if asked about it we'll get the "this was the tool available at the time", but I think we'd all rather see the EB or VOTC Chewie used instead.  Heck, that is one of the "big gun" figures that should be available every year in Legends or some sort of release.

Well I got plenty of stuff this weekend on a road trip to my mother-in-laws.

One each of the AOTC wave except Anakin (didn't find him), plus an extra Obi. Man, that fig is great and SO long overdue. Glad to finally have him in SA format.
X2 Stormtrooper/Rebel Fleet Trooper (Galactic Heroes)
X2 AT-TE (for the TRU sale of $50 each)
X2 TX 130 Saber Tank!!! This thing is sweet! I'm SO happy Hasbro made this. A smidge disappointed the outrigger wings don't pivot, but I'll deal with it.
Titanium Clone Wars Era Y-wing
Titanium Y-wing (Pops-can't recall his name though) This one looks just like a normal Y-wing except the color rings around the nacelles is brownish in color.
Cad Bane's modified P-38 (can't recall the name-very funky deco on this one. Very unique.)
Hyena Bomber - I didn't expect the wings to be that much different from a regular droid starfighter but they are. They are clipped in the upper rear, IIRC.

I did see two podracers but passed on them. Just don't like them in titanium format. I'm thinking I bought one other Titanium, but I can't recall. I'll check tonight and report back tomorrow if there are any additional purchases not listed in my post.

Saw most of the Hoth wave except the Hoth Rebel Trooper (rolls eyes). I passed on this wave as I already have it from HTS and just Friday received the Emperor from this wave from HTS. So I'm down to only needing the Hoth Rebel Trooper.

Saw but passed on Transformers Leader class Jetfire. I do want it, just short on funds after some of the other purchases this weekend.

It was a good weekend for toys. But then again, it was a 4 hour road trip to my mother in law's. So I took advantage of stopping at every Wal*Mart along the way and then a TRU on the way back. Otherwise, none of this stuff was local to me.

Other than it being to clean, I suspect you're going to love it. (Unless you love clean ships, then you're really going to love it.)

I opened one of mine up to briefly view. I don't have a place to set it up for now, and I don't want to ruin the diorama. So, for now it's back in the box until I can break it out again. It's a nice ship though and one I've wanted since I first saw it years ago in the video game.

My only complaint as stated is that the side wings don't pivot up or down. I wonder if I could custom one of these to do that? Hmm, future project maybe.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on July 21, 2009, 06:13 PM
I hate clean ships but that is an easy fix. The best SW decos of all time in this SKU, in my opinion, were the TAC Rusty Trade Tank & TAC V-Wing first release.  They looked so good with a ton of detail that has yet to be repeated. They should be the standard especially since some stores charge $25 instead of the intended $20. But with inflation only to get worse and companies squeezed with an insane slew of Taxes with the Carbon BS I expect even less for my money in the near future. I think the Target Aayla Secura starfighter set the crappy precedent since. Look at the V-Torrent, that's as plain as you get. That's why I only own 1, I have x4 TAC Tanks & x2 V-Wings, they are losing sales with me.

TAC still blew away all of the other SW lines in terms of figures, selection & vehicles. Everything since has been a bit ho-hum. (The BMF gets a pass, that's still the gem of my collection.)
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: speedermike on July 21, 2009, 11:53 PM
I agree about TAC, the selection of figs, the quality level of the figs, and the colorful, character specific cards made that an excelent line.  I might have nicer things to say about Legacy, that is, if I could actually find anything that's ******* new!

Just no rifles...   :-\

ESB wave is still probably the toughest wave to find in Pittsburgh though, which makes (so far) both Hoth Rebels a difficult find for me.

Last year they were cheap like that - and they all ended up on clearance.  I saved my receipts and ended up getting them for about $4.00 each when it was all said and done.

But, if you believe what Hasbro was saying at SDCC, it sounds like because of the huge clearance/surplus of sets last year, they cut the production numbers this year.

I'm not saying you won't find them on clearance in some parts of the USA, but it sounds like there may not be enough for the over-whelming blow-out of last year (once again, if you belive Hasbro that is).

It's either 7 or 14 days. Within that time, you can just bring in a receipt.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases

Yeah, but if you just keep the receipts, they're good for 90 days.  You can just buy clearanced items and then return them on the originals for up to 3 months after your purchase date.  Not to sound like a cheap bastard, but if they're going to clearance something out 3 months or less from it's inception, I don't see why you shouldn't be able to correct your purchase date to get the better price.

Depending on how big the Target you are near and whether they are going to have the 3 sides of an aisle as action figs or just 2 sides for the Christmas set has determined whether they are keeping the RC Droids on planogram or clearancing them out (as far as I can tell).

Picked up the last few sets of the Wal-Mart DF2 sets I need to complete my 2 Darktroopers.

And from reading other threads does that mean the "Ambush on Vultures Claw" is out?

FINALLY found remnants of the AOTC wave at Target today. I picked up Obi-Wan and Owen.

Also picked up a Hoth Rebel.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Nicklab on August 9, 2009, 06:53 PM
Bought a Mynock Hunt SL Chewbacca and a couple more bearded Hoth Rebels (one with skirt, one without).

I for one was pleased to see that Hasbro & WM are still shipping TLC BLUE wave 6 to stores.  Perhaps there's still some hope for the running change of the Hoth Rebel.

Picked up the Snail Tank at Target, store are restocking but no sign of the Beardless HRT.
I just missed the new comic packs as I found the remnants of the case.

I went to the worst ever Chicago Wizard World/Comic Con and the show did not even have anything brand spanking new or beardless Rebel which was not a good sign.

I finally got sick of waiting for Wave 6 to show up so I ordered a set. Very cool figures, way better than I was expecting, since I was kind of ho-hum about this wave when I saw it. The Hoth Rebel is excellent, as is the Ugnaught and Needa. The emporer turned out a lot better thn I was expecting as well, I currently have him standing in as my definitive ROTJ Emperor. The Luke and Leia are well made if not a little boring. And U-3PO is fantastic. I sooooo want this guy re-released as C-3PO, he's just perfect, the poses you can put him in have a ton of personality.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Nicklab on August 10, 2009, 08:08 PM
I found at least one case of the TLC BLUE wave 7 revision case today.  The Hoth Rebel Trooper was in there with HK-47 parts, but it was still the bearded version.  This and other recent sightings give me more confidence that just MAYBE the beardless HRT is going to show up at some point.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: iFett on August 10, 2009, 08:31 PM
This and other recent sightings give me more confidence that just MAYBE the beardless HRT is going to show up at some point.

Are there any reports of this figure actually being found at retail - or anywhere?  I know Hasbro said it's a limited release, but so far? 
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Nicklab on August 10, 2009, 08:55 PM
Haven't seen a sighting yet.  But the fact that waves 6 & 7 are still shipping leaves some hope that there are still some cases with the second HRT out there.  I'm sure that when they surface some will pop up online and there will be a feeding frenzy.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Darth_Anton on August 11, 2009, 10:58 AM
I don't think the clean shaven Trooper is coming out on the blue card at all. I could be another Black pauldron Sandtrooper situation where Hasbro is giving the factory a specific instruction that isn't being carried out.

So far I have found it impossibel to find a skirtless Hoth Rebel trooper!  ??? Where have you found these. All aside, Target is doing pretty well with the Legacy Collection, and there has been no short supply of the AOTC wave. Even now they're still re-stocking that wave, even when the new red/white packaging is about to hit. I already got Obi-Wan and Tarados Gon. There's no need for the Greatest Hits wave for me, as I already have the AOTC Anakin from the Evolution set, and Jango Fett is still going to come a few times more.

Post by: Pete_Fett on August 15, 2009, 11:02 AM
Found the remnants of a Red/White Comic 2-packs case. Only new set left was Lumiya vs. Luke Skywalker which I gladly picked up.

As a kid when I first read the Shia Brie/Lumiya stories, I have long hoped for figures of this character.

While I would have loved for them to put ankle articulation in with the figure, I think Lumiya turned out great. I'm tempted to get a second set just so I can display the figure with both head sculpts.

The Luke is "meh", but a nice effort. I wish they wouldn't put those clear rubber bands on the hands so tightly - they distort the hands and now my Luke won't hold either lightsaber.  ::)

Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on August 21, 2009, 07:08 PM
I picked up:

x2 Braniacs (Need the table to finish my 1:1 scale cantina dio)
Jedi vs. Sidious BP (for custom fodder)
and the best find was the three new comic packs. I have to say I like every figure. Home run for all of these sets! My only complaint is the rubber bands on Luke and the Imperial Knight's hands were too tight thus warping them.

Bought the Yuuzhan Vong/Katarn comic pack and Gunship pod battle pack at TRU tonight.  Love them both, and also I love clone cash.

I left the rest of the comic packs, they're priced okay at 12.99 but the only other figure I'm at all interested in was the Darth Krayt.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on August 31, 2009, 12:06 PM
I picked up and set of three of the new comic packs for customs and army builders. The crazy thing is people on eBay are paying $28-$37 for Darth Krayt loose and $20-$27 for Lumiya. I plan on buying a lot of the Darth Krayt pack to customize the female Imp Knights so I can get you hooked up DR with the next set I get at cost opr I would be happy to buy the Imp Kight figure from you. I also plan on getting 1-2 more of the Lumiya packs for that Luke head to replace all of my VOTC Bespin Luke heads, it's a huge improvement from that lop sided eye head it has currently.

As for the extra Lumiya & Krayt I currently have I could not help but post them on eBay. My Lumiya already has a bid for $21.99, this crap is expensive and if someone is willing to over pay that much right now I am more than happy to oblige them. Feel free to throw stones but that one figure already almost paid for 2 of the 3 packs on it's own so I have no regrets.

The bs debates we have to get into with these Wally employees to buy these are crazy.

The damn things are right there on the sales floor, we pick them up and bring them to the register and then we have to spend 15 minutes fighting over everything from convincing them they're not recalled to convincing them they're allowed to sell them now to what the price is.

Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on September 4, 2009, 03:27 PM
I think a lot of the reason WM's aren't letting them go out the door is because of toy recalls in the recent past.  That's been a big thing, and I think it's made many managers gunshy to let something that isn't in the system go, or that's bringing up a code.  It used to not be this much of a stone wall when something wasn't in their systems...  Now, not so much.

They obviously don't know one item from another.  I tried picking up a regular Evolutions set when they weren't in the system yet prior to the launch of the Legacy line, and they gave me the same run-around.  I know the manager at my nearest store and explained to her what the deal was, so she let me pick it up at the time, but she said all the toy recalls have caused them to be gunshy about just "pushing it through" the system.

I can believe that.  It makes sense.

Yeah, I don't get WM policy on this at all.  I tried to buy some joint compound (not for rolling - it's for dry wall) about a month ago.  It wouldn't ring up at the register and the sales lady told me it had been recalled.  It's freaking goop that dries - it wasn't recalled, it's just not in your silly system for whatever reason.  Argh!  Glad you walked away with the sets Anton.

Walmart gave me the recall business back when the first Legacy wave came out. It was a few days before the release date, and I was trying to buy Leektar and a couple others; they weren't ringing up yet, so of course they had been "recalled" due to paint or small parts or some BS. They're hilarious. ::)

In the 1 Walmart that I found these, I bought my fill which was 1 of each and 2 of the Imperial Pilots pack.  I got them to sell it to me for $21.76.  Then a few days later I looked to see what they had left, and there was just 1 pack on the shelf, the clone commandos, with a piece of paper duck taped to it that said: "Not to be displayed yet as per Todd."

I have a strange feeling that the Beardless version was never produced. If it was eBay would have had it. I heard through a very reliable source he will be in a 2010 wave. Jesse knows I got good sources so we will get him in the not too far future.

So can I. But in my experience, it's the language barrier and the "better be safe than sorry" attitude. The supervisors run into a problem and in stead of getting clarification, they just do what's been done before. Sounds like the problems Hasbro's having is the same exact problem I had.

2x Octuparra Droid
2x Imperial V-Wing
1x K-Mart "Clone Squad" 4-pack
1x WM Clone Commandos Evolutions Set (so I can have a second one open)

and I found one each of Obi-Wan, Amidala, Gungan Warrior, the Pod Racer and Holo Sidious from the TPM wave. For some reason Rum Sleg was missing when I found them...

Pretty expensive week...

Found the Phantom Menace wave today, I bought the Gungan, Rum Sleg, and Obi Wan who are all awesome.

I passed on everything else because I just do not think they are worth $8.50.  I feel that Holo Sidious and the podracer are practically pack-ins or accessories for other figures.

I'll buy more Gungans when I see them.

No ****?  These are still shipping?

In recent days I've gotten...

-Octuparra Droid (CW, I know, but it's realistically sculpted)
-Evolutions sets (most for $17, one for $24.96)
-4 Target 2-packs (which are sitting in a UPS station about 40 minutes from me...  I want my ****, brown man!)
-Hoth Rebels (bearded, obviously) bringing me to an almost respectable number...  not enough yet though.
-$3.99 30AC figures at TJ Maxx...  Takin' it to the max!

I cannot find...

-2 Gunship Ball Turret battlepacks.
-Latest Comic 2-packs (Kyle Katarn w/Vong, Luke/Lumiya, and so on).  I'm hoping to get a couple Kyle/Vong packs...  2 or 3.

I can't find the Snail Tank Droid either...  I haven't looked as hard for this, but I also haven't seen it at all when I am out and about.

x2 Cases of the Legacy ROTJ Wave from BBTS (Just got my shipment notification!)
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Brian on September 17, 2009, 10:46 AM
Over the past week I've got shipment notifications for the TPM and ROTJ waves as well from BBTS, so those should both be here within the week.  Also grabbed Wedge's X-Wing at Target a week or so ago.  Other than that, not much showing up locally.  Stores are really stocked up with the newer CW waves, and I did pick up the Han/Chewie (sandstorm) Legends figures a couple weeks back, but that's about it.  The only WM exclusive that has shown so far is the Octuparra Droid, but I haven't decided if I'm going to get that or not.

My Target Droids flirted with clearance for about two weeks. Then they all went back up to full price.

The RC droids, as well as the Galactic Heroes and Titaniums were being sporatically clearanced at certain Targets in my area early on this year for reasons I don't understand as I always thought they were across the board when it came to stuff like this.  The store that I got these from started or re-started their clearance on these a few weeks back and I've just kinda had these in the oven waiting - so to speak.  Nice to have all 4 for the price of one though.

If you're still looking for the AOTC wave, I humbly suggest checking your local Kohl's. They aren't cheap ($9.50!) but it worked out for me since I only needed Typho and Owen, and now I don't have to order them from HTS and pay $4 more in shipping. They had about four cases at my local store, so that must be where most of these went.

There's also quite a selection of CW stuff too, though it's all the same stuff you can find at WM and Target for $2 cheaper.

Just by chance I happened to stop by Walmart at lunch and they actually had the Droid Factory Exclusive pack I wanted - Boba and BL-17, the only one on the shelf at all. I had seen these before but it didn't register about the Droids connection - once I realized that, the appeal was too strong to deny. Freakin' sweet.

Picked up a MIB Crumb Bomber this morning too.

Actually saw a case from the The Phantom Menace wave (or what was left of it)!!  :o Funny because I went to that Target store Sunday and there was nothing there ... then I went Thursday and all that was left from the wave were the Gungan Warrior, Jawa w/ WED droid, and the Endor Scout trooper. Already have the scout, so I picked up the Jawa and Gungan. Really like these figures. I hadn't picked up the Jawa the first time it hit the white/blue packaging.

Does anyone know when Target stores re-stock their figures on the shelves??  ???
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: GrandMoffNick on October 9, 2009, 02:43 PM

They restock over night, every day if they are high volume and some stores skip a couple days if they are low volume, and then the system pulls backstocked stuff all day as it sells (if they have any in back, that is). So they had plenty of chances to get new stuff between Sunday and Thursday.

I'm pretty sure when the economy tanked there was a financial release re: Target stores that indicated that in most markets they stopped overnight stocking to cut down on salary costs. While I don't remember the specifics, I know that they definitely did that in my area.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: GrandMoffNick on October 9, 2009, 02:53 PM
Some stores stock "early morning" instead of "overnight". So 4am to 12am instead of 10pm to 6 am, but most of the time you'll see the stuff early in the morning AND certainly new stuff showing up between Sun. and Thurs. makes sense.

I came across a very random Star Wars find today, at a local Rite Aid drugstore of all places...  The store had in stock the "Crimson Empire" figure pack and the "Rand Ecliptic" TIE Fighter with Hobby and the Rebel insignia on the wings.  They did not have price tags on them and I did not check the prices, but I would guess they are probably cheaper than on line.  The TIE looked interesting, but not so much that I wanted to pick it up.  Still, these might be showing up at your own local Rite Aids, so keep a lookout!

I have revisited one local Rite so see if the Tie Ecliptic got there, I had no luck to find such...........

went to Target later just to find the Geonosis Arena set, bought the new 3 jedies but windu & fisto........ Not happy what I paid for them  $50 

Am very tempted to return the set & wait for clearance if this ever happen again like last yr close to $3 per pk.

The CF Target also put out only one case. I guess the odds of seeing these on clearance are nil.

It seems like the Dewbacks and AT-ST's are shipping at the same time.  The AT-ST is insanely cool, and I don't think I'd wait on this one.

I didn't see any sign of the comic packs.  But based on the auction that popped up with the IG-97 droid, I think it's more likely that those will show up in 2 - 3 weeks.

That looked like one of Tunghori's auctions as I recall.  He's an overseas seller and it's presumed he gets his stuff right from the factory.  I haven't officially correlated his auctions to when we see stuff in the states, but I think there have been a few teims recently where he has had product for sale a good month or more before we see it here.

Scored ANH Wave at Wal-Mart today, and ROTS wave at TRU (the IG-88 concept is outstanding). 

That makes three full waves hitting my area in the last few weeks... ROTJ, ANH and ROTS. 

Dewbacks have hit here as well though I haven't been able to get one.   I know two people who have found them and each one bought all three they saw.  I almost hope I don't see them or the AT-STs for a couple weeks with all I've been buying lately.

Post by: tmanthegreat on November 3, 2009, 06:20 PM
Haven't seen the Dewbacks or AT-STs in my area yet, but good to hear they are starting to show up.  I've checked three Wal Marts in my immediate area and have two more to go.  Best case (and most likely) is that the items simply have not been put out yet.  The worst case is that the scalpers got to them before me.  I sincerely hope the items show up in force ;)

K...I wasted like 2 hours tonight looking for WM exclusives.  No more hunting for me for a few more weeks.  MN seemed to be in the first wave for their last batch, but not this time.  Still shocked we even got everything (at select stores) during that round.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on November 3, 2009, 09:30 PM
I bought a lone Major Panno.  It was the only thing remotely new I saw besides dewbacks on a big toy run.  A waste of time, for sure.

Big day for me yesterday. Picked up both the Dewback and At-St from WM and my Scanning Trooper order arrived from HTS. Haven't opened anything yet, can't wait.

I happily found the AT-ST today without having to go to a Wal Mart too far out of my way.  No sign of the dewback at that particular store, but the AT-ST was what I really wanted.  I also found some of the ROTJ wave, getting Major Panno and Nien Numb in the flight gear.

I had a very expensive week but have a lot of great swag to show for it:

Aldi - x2 Freeco Bikes with Obi-Wan
Wal-Mart - Dewback, x2 AT-ST's, Utai, Concept IG-88, x2 Ugnaught V2 & a Agen Kolar for fodder
BBTS - Legacy ROTS full case, Case of new Legacy Battlepacks & and Extra Colton to upgrade my ROTS Captian Antilles.

I cannot wait to crack open the AT-ST's tonight, this piece looks great! I bought the only two I saw, I think this one will blow off the shelves.

Found a mixture of the new ANH and ROTJ waves at one Wal Mart, including the Imperial Scanning Crew figure.  I'll need another one of those for the technician figure.  They also had the new delux figure packs...  The Freeco speeder is quite nice!

Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on November 10, 2009, 09:08 PM
I cleared up a LOT of **** I needed tonight...

-Final Geo 2-pack I needed.
-ROTJ Luke I wanted for the 2nd way to display him (Now I just need an extra Leia & I'd like about 10 Panno's for army building).
-Gelagrub Battlepack (and it hurt, oh it hurt)
-ROTS Wave in its entirety (halle-friggin'-lujah)
-TRU TIE Interceptor for Christmas.
-And...  AT-ST's, finally.  :D  Saw them at about half the WM's I visited tonight...  The other half, nothing.

Saw zip from the ANH wave all night though at any store, and that's a little disconcerting but I'll keep looking and maybe hope for them to surface en masse on Hasbro Toy Shop, and just plunk down an order.  It's the only wave out currently that has an army builder I really want 20-ish of though, and that stings.

I also am dreading finding that variant Ugnaught.  That's got me worried.

Beyond that stuff I really am just behind the Endor 2.0 Battlepack, Rishi Outpost Battlepack, and 2 Katarn/Vong comic packs.  That's really over half the stuff I wanted I figure, found tonight.  I feel a lot better about collecting at the moment.

Wow...Good score Jesse!  I'm done with my collecting everything Hasbro, but there's still a few things I'd like to pick up.

Scored the variant Ugnaught this morning.  Saw pretty much a whole case of the ROTJ wave.  The distressing thing though is that Target only seems to be restocking TLC RED one case at a time.  That really bites when almost every figure is now packed 1 per case.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases

Ok - so over the past week I've scored:

2x WalMart Exclusive Dewback
1x Concept IG-88
1x Utai
1x Jeremoch Colton
1x Agen Kolar
1x Plo Koon
1x Commander Cody
1x Commander Bacarra (ROTS Legacy Wave Repack)
1x Stormtrooper (ROTS Legacy Wave Repack)


Should I be concerned that I have YET to see Wave 10 (the ANH wave)?

Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases

I've seen the complete ANH wave by now over 2-3 Wal Marts in my area, but have yet to see the ROTS one.  It will likely be around in time...

2x BD30 Han Solo (Death Star Escape)
2x BD31 Chewbacca (Falcon Co-Pilot)
2x BD32 Imperial Scanning Crew
2x BD33 Hrchek Kal Fas
2x BD34 Leesub Sirln
1x BD35 Padme Amidala
1x BD37 Clone Commander Deviss {repack}
1x BD38 Ki-Adi-Mundi (Episode III Concept Art)
2x BD39 Jawa & 2X-7KPR Droid

I just need to score one more Ki-Adi-Mundi Concept Art figure and the Boba Fett '09 Legacy Collection Repack with the ANH wave droid part and I'm done with this wave...

I found ESB Wave 6, AOTC Wave 7, and oddly ROTS Wave 11 at Kohl's today for $7.03/each.

I bought Wave 11 Cody, Agen Kolar, and the Utai.  I didn't want the other ones.

About Cody, can't beat the new articulation, but by God, they didn't eliminate that pin head from the TSC version.  With the helmet on, he looks great though.  Love the Sidious holo pack-in.

Found the ANH wave at Target. 

That's good to hear - I still need a MOC Boba Fett repack from this wave along with an opener of the Concept Ki-Adi-Mundi so I can finish off the wave. My WMs are getting the ROTS wave more than the ANH wave, so I hope that I'm able to score both figures soon.

Bought entire ANH wave at K-Mart, and got the Rishi moon (CW) and other battle packs for $19.99.  They had a LOT.  Also their Clone Squad exclusive was $19.99 and it's mostly just army builders plus armored Kenobi.  Not a bad deal there either.

Expensive day - in addition to picking up some CW stuff, I also grabbed:

1x Gelagrub Patrol BP
1x New Endor BP

and a bunch of Legacy Collection figures I wanted extras of:
Gungan Warrior, Jawa w/Security Droid, Utai, SA Commander Bacarra, Imperial Scanning Trooper

I also picked up the last figure I needed to be all caught up with Legacy Figures through the ROTS wave - Concept Ki-Adi Mundi (yeah!)

Looks like I'm going to need to turn my attention to the Target Exclusive CW battle packs next while still keeping an eye out for more regular issue BPs in the new Red/White packaging...

It would be great for a break, but that's probably not going to come until around Christmas!

Kohl's has been insane lately.  I scored everything I wanted from Phantom Menace, New Hope, and ROTS waves this week, finishing up today with some Gungan Warriors.

Depending what hour of the day you're there apparently, they are anywhere from $7.03 to $8.79.

Kinda crazy that Kohl's has been hand's down the best place to find figures in November.

I caved in and got the SOTE TIE Fighter at Target today and will probably have to go back and get the CW figure packs.  From the posts above, it sounds like I should start checking my local Khols stores 8)
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: efranks on November 23, 2009, 01:01 AM
I posted some of my pickups on Friday in a different thread so I won't rehash...but I ran around town this morning for the KMart sale and to see what else was out.  I forgot to go  to Kohls, though.  I blame it on the early morning.

Nothing at KMart but what they had for the last couple of days, which is Legends and Clone Wars.  Nothing at Walmart either.

I did find three ROTJ figures at Target.  Malakili, Panno and the Nikto Guard.  The packages were completely crushed!  I checked all the figs and nothing looked broken but then I remembered to check the droid part and it's a good thing I did.  Malakili and Nikto were fine as they just had the legs.  But the Panno card and bubble were so crushed that it had flattened the dome b-a-d part and it had split down the side. 

Ruined. 

So I left it on the pegs but I did buy the other two.  Wish they would have had Leia and Giran at least.  Don't know if I got beat to them or if they just didn't put them out...they've kind of been putting figs out 3 or 4 or 5 at a time.  Anyway, came home and ordered Panno and Jedi Luke from HTS.com.  Now I'll just need Giran and Leia from that wave, and the B-a-D parts.  Oh, and the grey Ugnaught that's shipping with that wave.  It never ends, and now there are reports of the ESB wave on the West coast? 

Crap.

   E...
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on November 23, 2009, 01:59 AM
I too browsed K-Mart.  I left about 8:30 (I had no idea they opened at 8, that's relatively early for a retail place), and there's 2 on the way to my gf's place so I hit both.

First things first, I stopped at the nearest which is in my town, and I picked up a number of figures including a Scanner tech, random army builders and probably a total of 10 figures today.  The other day (last Monday) I picked up ANH wave at this same store.  I nabbed a couple ROTJ wave hold-overs here too for fodder and stuff.

The Scanner tech made my day, but what came next was the best...  I picked up that ANH wave a week ago and got the whole thing price-adjusted, which I wasn't positive they'd do but they did.  So I got the entire ANH wave for $4.50 a figure, more or less.  That has me giddy at this point, and my first stop made it 100% worth the trip.

Next stop at the next KM down in another town, I'd been here Thursday and they had the entire ROTJ wave but I'd left them hoping (by shuffling stuff around) they'd have them again today rolled around.  Alas most were gone but I got my 2nd Leia finally and a Luke.  I also got more army builders from Legends and repacks from ROTJ.

My gf wanted to give me all this for Christmas too so this all worked out as just self-bought gifts, so I'd not spent anything at this point and was actually ahead of the game because of the price adjustment.

I also returned a battlepack to WM, and stopped into Target to price-adjust two Geonosis 2-packs I bought a couple weeks ago, so I was getting money back left and right today.

People dump on K-Mart a lot, but in some parts of the country they're still actually pretty important to the retail make-up of the area.  Pittsburgh's got a lot of KM's at them.  And steadily since at least 2005 I can attest that KM always has at least one big sale (if not more) a year where I stock up on a LOT of stuff for very little cash. 

Bash away but I still like KM...  They're pretty dead in areas where WM's and Targets are a dime a dozen though, I imagine.  Locally though, they're sometimes the only game in town unless you want to drive 20+ minutes to a WM.

I wish their regular price was competitive with Target and TRU...  I'd be happier with them and stop more often I think, but their battlepacks are basically the same price at this point, and when they're on sale for $19.99 and only KM is getting in new ones it seems, hey I'm in.  Same with this sale...  Locally, KM is the only store that's steadily stocked Legacy the past month at least.  ANH, ROTJ, TPM...  So far only ROTS hasn't been there.  They even have the newest CW figure waves too.  Kudos to them for being able to do something the other retailers seemingly cannot.

Good thing I didn't, scored the comic packs at Walmart!!!  They had a fresh case out and they were all still there.  I picked up the Kyle/Vong and Krayt/Dare packs.  I already have Luke and Lumiya from my HTS.com order so that finished the set.  And to make it better, I had that $5 coupon from coupons.com so they only cost $10.38 each!

Using a rain check I got at a KMart for the $20 BP price, I picked up the Duel on Mustafar and Kamino Conflict BPs this morning.

Is the Resurgence of the Jedi pack in this case? They had no BPs yesterday and then today they had those two "new" ones and then a Rishi Moon BP (which I also bought) and the Geonosis Assault BP - so I either missed the new ANH set or the case they got didn't have that set in the mix...

No.  The Resurgence of the Jedi BP case is marked Wave 8, Rev 3:

After hitting two targets that stocked the ROTJ wave, the third had stocked the ANH wave and I was finally able to polish off the set with the "Bossk" cantina guy and the re-painted Boba for good measure. Also picked up my first retail scanning trooper. Then I went to WM and saw the ROTS wave.

Biggest day at retail in such a long time!!!    ;D ;D ;D

Just went on my lunch to Walmart in Osceola, Indiana (NW Indiana), and lo and behold a Dewback.  Sweet, I already have one that I got "site to store", but I have a $5 off coupon so I thought I would get one and send the full priced one back later.

BUT THE FUN DIDN'T STOP THERE!!!    ;D ;D ;D

There was also a full case of the new ESB wave of figures on the pegs!!!  I grabbed one of each of the new figures and left the repacks (Snowtrooper, Plo, Agen).  The paint apps are phenomenal and I couldn't be more happy with them.  I also used several more $5 off coupons on these, plus a CW Argyus figure - so I saved a bunch of $$$

Seriously, I don't think I have bought a figure that I didn't already have at retail since Wave 5.  Everything else I (1 of each new BAD figure) I have grabbed off HTS.

Happy Hunting!!!! 

ps - incase anyone is curoius about the droid parts break down, I noticed that the R2-X2 came with a leg (so since I bought the whoel wave of new figures I have an extra leg), the Snowtrooper repack came with a leg, and both Plo and Agen came with arms.  Hope that makes sense, if anyone has further questions I will look at the figures again and answer questions when I get home - back to work time right now!

ESB Wave at Wal-Mart (I had to go for basic stuff but glad I stopped in the aisle)
My 12th Geonosis Turret pack...I AM FINALLY DONE OUTFITTING ALL OF MY GUNSHIPS!!!!
Target - I picked up another Scanning crew dude.

Target and Wal-Mart were really stocked everything from Freeco Bikes, ANH, ROTS, ESB waves, new BPS, AT-ST, Target Tie and so much more. The only store cleaned out was TRU. The sale they had was obviously successful.

I found the complete ESB wave at the Clovis, CA Wal Mart today on my lunch break, plus elements of the ROTS wave.  Basically, I was able to get all the figures I've been wanting for the past few weeks in one swoop 8)  Willrow Hood is fantastic and I don't think the Bespin Guard is that bad either.  I like the improved Commander Cody figure from the ROTS wave, though the head appears a little small.

Found the ESB wave 12 at Walmart.  Love the Luke and AT-AT driver in particular, left the Willrow, R2-X2 and repacks with the flood of stuff out lately.

Kohl's has been the place for every other Wave 6 ---> 11 still, with the exception of a little wave 9,10 at Target here and there.

Picked up almost all of what I need to be "done" with the new ESB wave today.

My local WM got in two cases and unfortunately someone had already grabbed one of the Concept Snowtroopers. So other than that figure, I was able to grab two of each of the others. I also grabbed a MOC repack of the Snowtrooper for my carded collection.

Great wave, can't wait to open them tonight!

I had to go over the hill, so to speak, yesterday and after being Scanning trooper challenged in my area, walked away with 8 from the neighboring region. 7 from one WM alone, and that was about the only basic figure on the pegs.

Here's the real frustrating/weird part. The scanning trooper's UPC hasn't been tagged for the $6 sale in my neck of the woods. I had to go to two WM's to get the price of my Scanning Trooper purchased earlier in the week adjusted. At the first one, he wasn't even on file, so I had to go get the UPC from the package and went to another store instead. He was on file, but at $7.49. So when he was the only figure ringing up at full price when I found the jackpot, it hit me that they excluded his UPC. It took some convincing, but they did give them to me for $6 each.

Another frustrating WM note. One of my Locals hasn't put out any Basic Legacy figures period in the new packaging. I asked a new toy manager who looks and acts like he gives a crap about that fact. He scanned the right peg and said that they have 586 pieces in the stock room and offered to get get me a couple of cases. Even asked if I knew the wave numbers and said it could take a while. 20 minutes later, he came back, couldn't find a single SW figure case.

That's either a lot of theft or a lot of incompetence.  Either way, that's the type of mistake that could/should cost someone a job.

At the beginning of the year my local Walmart was doing inventory.  They hadn't had any 25th GI Joe figures since before Christmas.  Right before the RGIS tags showed up the local employees were doing counts and a tag appeared on the empty pegs saying they had 16 pieces in inventory, 2 cases.  Never had them or they went out the back because our store never had another 25th figure, or any Joe figure, till the movie line hit.

It could be like the Walmart in my area.  they have containers outside in the back filled with Toys for the holiday season.  Perhaps all the SW figs are back there and the employee doesn't know about it.  I know for a fact that at the WM I am talking about in particular has all of the AT exclusives and Dewbacks out there because they don't have room on the sales floor.

but you would think the "toy manager" would know about that...

Supposedly tomorrow according to the tracking info from UPS I will bet getting my toyrocket.com order - though I am still speculative over the whol deal.  According to the UPS tracking info my package weighs 8.6 lbs - here is what I ordered in abbreviated form:

Mon Calamari Warrior, Padme in Ilum Gear, Darth Vader & Grand Moff Trachta, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, Rebel Honor Guard, Death Star Trooper, Han Solo (Bespin Torture Rack), R2-D2 With Cargo Net, R2-B1, Rebel Vanguard Trooper, McQuarrie Concept R2-D2 and C-3PO, Clone Trooper 7th Legion, Pit Droids, 30th Anniversary Collection Droid Factory Complete Action Figure Set, Lt. Jundland (Luke Skywalker) and Deena Shan Action, Borsk Fey'lya and Wedge Antilles, Polis Massan, Ask Aak, Wookiee Heavy Gunner (#68 Corrected Card), Lobot Action Figure, Djas Puhr, Orn Free Taa, Teemto Pagilies, Ellorrs Madak (Duros), Ketwol, Sabe, Queen Amidala Royal Decoy, Zutton, Senator Palpatine, ASP-7 Droid, Snake-Eyes, G.I. Joe Resolute Action Figure Set

I was doubtful at first before typing this list that my entire order only weighed 8.6 lbs, now, after typing this list and remembering all I ordered, there is no way in hell all that only weighs 8.6 lbs.

I guess I will find out tomorrow...

You know what, those pallet displays have 3 sides of figures and if my math is right, each holds about 288 figures.  Two pallet displays would be 576 figures.  Is the WM store you stopped at a Supercenter or one of those new impact stores?  Maybe they're sitting on a couple pallet displays somewhere.

Edit ->  Actually, I just read a report on RS that the pallet display comes with TLC figures only 3 deep in each section, unlike CW which were 6.  And the photos of a newly opened pallet display confirm that...I just thought the TLC section had already sold some pieces.  So, I don't know.  Maybe this particular store had 2 full pallet displays somewhere or, maybe someone is just ******* with us.

BD29 R2-D2
BD30 Han Solo (Death Star Escape)
BD31 Chewbacca (Falcon Co-Pilot)
BD35 Padme Amidala

I mostly did it so I could get second R5-C7 and R3-A2 B-A-Ds. I also wanted some of them for displays or to put into various vehicles, etc...

Aw heck, I went ahead and bought Willrow and Zuckuss from the new ESB Wave. I sort of hate spending $$ on TLC stuff that I really don't need, but there's nothing else new out right now and I miss buying new toys. $12 was hard to pass up too.

I love the insider geek appeal of Willrow, I brought him to the office today to set up next to my computer.

Zuckuss is just one of my all time favorite characters. I am actually thinking about starting a Zuckuss focus, since I already have the vintage fig and 12" version.

Just got my order from Toyrocket.com yesterday - and I am gonna go ahead and not recommend them to people.  Along with my laundy list of lies on their part about when they shipped my order they also shipped it incomplete.  You can see the complete list of what I ordered a few posts above.  What they didn't ship:  

30th Anniversary Collection Droid Factory Complete Action Figure Set  ($40)
Sabe  ($2.50)
Snake-Eyes ($2.50)
G.I. Joe Resolute Action Figure Set  ($15)

So $60 of product I paid for a month ago.  Their reason?  It was all "back ordered" even though it was listed as instock on their site from the time I bought and "in stock/processing" throughout the month I waited.  And "back ordered", according to the toyrocket.com employee, means they won't be getting it back in stock...

Want to hear the real kick in the in nuts?  Even though they sent me this package, and knew that they would not be sending me the above items, it wasn't until I called last night to say something to them about not getting the above items that they said "Ok, we are going to go ahead and refund your credit card".  Why the hell did I have to make the phone call to get that initiated?  This should have been automatic on their part when they realized these items were "back ordered" and they would not be getting them.  

Bottom line - not happy with their overall service.  Extremely happy with the items that I did receive.  I probably wouldn't do business with them again - the only instance I might chance it would be if they would have another "oh no we are going under" sale again because the deals were insane.  Otherwise with toyrocket.com you get lightning deals like Ak-Rev for $15, but we all already knew that their regular prices suck...  Would I recommend them to a friend - No.  

this should be my last post about toyrocket.com   ;) - unless they don'y got ahead and refund my $60   >:(

edit:  my $60 was refunded   :)

Went to Target last night to see what they had for Legacy - 1 Malakili, and 1 Nien Nunb.  I asked a worker if she could check to see if they had more "Star Wars toys" in stock and thankfully she said yes - without even a whince!

She called to back and they said they had 1 case - she came back with 2 cases of the ROTJ.  I already had this wave but I decided to pick up a bike trooper anyway.

It will interesting to see how long they last especially since ROTJ has been hitting Target hard.  One thing is for certain CW and SL figs are not moving at that store - it seems like the same ones have been there forever.

A lot of people have had all those TCW figures since October...maybe Hasbro could think about squeezing in a new wave sometime before 2010.  ::)

I wish my Target would locate 2 cases of ROTJ in the back.  I still need Giran and the grey Ugnaught from the revision case of ROTJ.

My Target got at least 2 cases of the figures but I never saw the whole wave on the pegs at any one time and never saw the Giran figure at all.  And since WM is on to the ROTS pallet display, I'm guessing they skipped the ROTJ wave alltogether.

One of Hasbro's answers yesterday about this was interesting though; sounds like they held back some product in order to get all the waves into the stores somewhere.  So I don't know if ROTJ will suddenly pop up at WM or ESB at Target, but I'm betting on getting screwed so I won't be disappointed if they don't show.

This isn't technically Legacy, nor a purchase, but I thought it would interest everyone in general but largely I'm thinking army builders with this too...

My only recent Legacy Purchases, besides the Resurgence in the Force battlepack, has been random army builders cheap at Wal-Mart, so this came at a pretty good time for me since I'm amassing a bigger pile of plastic guys to line up in many rows now, haha.

It's worth a shot.  One of the cool things though is a simple row of figures lined up and displayed is equally easy to move, run the dust stick, then move them back.  That kind of value alone sold me...  the army building thing though, that was a huge positive for me since a lot of my guys, once displayed, will be in simple straight ranks front to back.

Passed down the Turbo Tank at $50 (may regret this later)

I'm kinda pissed I paid full price for this thing when it first came out.  Yes I know it's the "logical" thing to do to "support" larger vehicles, but I also would have liked to have saved that $50 during these half off sales during the past few months and now clearance.  Oh well...

At my local WM, there are no TTs, Octuptarra Droids, or Evolution sets to be seen.  There are quite a few AT-STs left, but they are still all at $43 and some change.

I picked up a tampered with Deback. I found it by the bedding section at my local walmart, someone worked really hard at removing the tape just to steal the Sandtrooper backpack. I bought it anyway because the rifle was still there, and that's really all i was interested in. It just blows my mind they stole the backpack and not the rifle. I also picked up 2 Rite aid clearance Tie fighters.

I have no idea why but I picked up a 50% off Turbo Tank, I could not resist but will probably pawn this on eBay in a few weeks. I also picked up a 50% off Rebel Piot Evo set. I saw all of them but this is the only one that enticed me. I paid $17 the first time around with a store computer  typo so I have always bout these discounted, $13 is a better price I must admit. I may go back for another Tie Pilot set......

I've seen more of this crap this year than my previous 12 years in this hobby combined.  Soooo much. 

I got some $12 clearance Imperial Pilot Evolutions at Walmart this week.  Basic figures are marked down to $6, the Octuparra is $17.50, but the Dewback and AT-ST are still full price.

I picked up an Imperial Scanning Tech and Deviss blockbuster pack at Target on Thursday.  If I hadn't already tracked down all of the new figures in those packs I probably would have walked out with more.  Still, it's cool to have a second Tech and the Devis can go on the army builder pile.

Made some decent finds today.  Picked up a BOGO Obi-Wan & Gungan pack plus some clearance WM Evolutions at half price.  Namely the Rebel Pilots and Imperial Pilots.  It's nice to get 6 really good figures for a deal like that.

Found Snowspeeder Luke and the Bespin Guard at WM last night. They were the only two figs from that wave, and the last ones I'd expect to be left behind. Still no sign of the BOGO 2 packs in my area. :-\

Found Luke Snowspeeder, Concept Snowtroooper, ICMG and Zuckuss at a Wal-mart. They had lots of good  BOGO, so I pcked up some for my boys.  Lots of CW figures too, plus, the Droid Factory sets still at full price!  17.00!  Passed on them.

And the shelves were a total mess from Target Christmas after-shoppers. There was the remainder of the ANH wave scattered across the shelves, and 1 lone BOGO pack. Target is finally receiving the new BPs - except I couldn't find Resurgence of the Jedi. >:(

Went to a different Target store 1/4/010 and scored Kit Fisto/Geonosian set. Found 2 of the variant Ugnaughts, but they didn't have enough merit for me to buy one this day... although I know I probably won't see them again.  ::)

I scored a few of the Legacy bonus packs at Target today.  I cannot believe some of the figs they've included.  Got one with the kinda rare Ugnaught v2 and another with Slave Leia.  Of course, Target basic figure prices are $8.24 at my store, but that's still a nice bargain for two figs!

Yeah, I was shocked at some of the pairings.  I'd like to find more of the Scanner Techie and the Saurrin guy...  Honestly though, I'd like to find more in general as these aren't lingering here much.  Some of the crummier sets are (Bespin Han, etc.) but that's to be expected.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: JediJman on January 5, 2010, 10:01 AM
Yeah, some scanning tech freebies would really be nice.  I passed on the three Legends bonus packs I found - even at BOGO I can't find any use for them.  I nabbed six sets in all:

Slave Leia/Jedi Luke
Giran/Ewok 2pk
Nikto Gunner/Ugnaught
ARC Trooper/Nein Nunb
Major Panno/Neyo Trooper
Rancor Keeper/Scuba Trooper

Probably could have done without the last two, but they were hard to pass up at that price.

Post by: Pete_Fett on January 7, 2010, 10:05 PM
In my continued (possible mental illness induced) quest to have at least two of each Build-A-Droid, I've picked up the following in the last couple of weeks:

- a complete set of the WM Droid Factory wave - so I could have a second Dark Trooper
- a complete set of the ESB wave figures - so I could make a second HK-50
- Holographic Transmission Dooku & Yaddle/Evan Piell 2-packs - for the right arm and leg of the black RA-7 droid
- Rum Sleg, Clegg Holdfast, Queen Amidala, Holo Sidious & Obi-Wan Kenobi - to add to the torso part I have from my Gungan army builders to complete a second L8-L9

So now, the only B-A-D I don't have at least two of is C-3PX (and of course, I don't have any BG-J38s yet since that wave hasn't hit yet).

I keep checking my local WM hoping that either the Dewback or AT-ST go on clearance but no dice.

I am thinking about buying one of the Rebel Pilots evolution sets they have coming out so I could take my second openers of Jaina and Jacen and put them in Pilot uniforms. Has anyone tried the Corran Horn head on any of the Jedi bodies? I would love to be able to use the head of the second Horn figure I have to make a "Jedi" version of him.

Over the course of the past week I have picked up complete waves from the BOGO at Target for ANH, ROTJ, and TPM except for the Gungan and whoever he comes with, which I woulda loved to have - that Gungan rocks!

All of these BOGO sets were purchased at the same Target store.  I feel lucky!

The WM's around here never have Star Wars go to clearance.  I found an A-Wing at one today and it was still $29.95.  The AT-ST's are still $40+.  The Turbo Tanks are gone, but that is about it.

Walmart is a pain in the ass.  They had 2005 Titanium vehicles, that originally cost $4.88, still on the pegs as of late 2008, early 2009.  They were on "clearance" for $5.99 because they'd been in the store long enough to go through two price increases on the line. 

I stopped at TJ Maxx tonight and found some comic packs for $6.99.  I picked up the Luke and Emperor set.  If I'd had the money I would have also gotten the Faie/Voss pack.  There was one Anakin/Durge set as well.  Four total as they had 2 Luke/Emperor sets before I bought mine.  If the Voss set is still there Friday I'll pick it up.

Funny note about some of the recent Wal Mart discounts in my area:  In at least two stores, I've seen the new evolution packs discounted to the $12 mark while the ones from last year are still at the $22 mark ::)

It doesn't matter to me either way as I have my fill from both series, but its still odd nonetheless ;)
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Jabba the Slug on January 12, 2010, 08:44 PM
I've tried looking for a few Evolutions sets to see if I could hit a discount ... but either my stores aren't selling or won't discount them.  :(

And I went to Target and there was nothing but a glutton of Major Panno, Giran, and Skiff Guards (w/ a few Saessee Tiins, Plo Koons, and TCW IG-86s). I was mildy surprised that someone had hacked into a Skiff Guard w/ cannon. When I inspected the product, everything was still in place - nothing missing. Either the package was horribly (and I mean HORRIBLY) damaged in the case box, or someone deliberately tried to steal it.

I nabbed another Octuparra Droid for half off tonight...  That's it.

WM's here are seriously doubled up on figures, mostly Legends.  I should snap photos to show people the cluster**** here.  I think it may surpass even what you guys have griped about earlier. :)

Seriously there's endcaps of figures just sitting up on their own, no pegs, and this is in addition to the regular dozen or so pegs alotted to Star Wars figures.  There will seriously be a whole endcap of Legends stuff though, and no hooks to even hang them on, just set on shelves.  It's crazy, and it pretty much is assuring I will not see new figures anytime soon.

Funny, my local Walmart is just the opposite - most of their figs seem to have vanished with the most recent planagram reset, or whatever you call it. They had NO vehicles, BP's etc so I am hoping this is a good sign that they have space for new product.

Sounds exactly like the Vestal, NY Walmart store.  They had hundreds of Legends figures as of the Sunday after Christmas.  Probably a dozen pegs full in the main aisle, standing up on a shelf on an end cap and another 15 or so pegs on one side of a 4-way aisle display. 

A guy I shoot pm's back and forth with on RS, who lives in the Vestal area, said that they finally got some TLC figs in the store this week.  But he's been talking to the workers and they scanned for the TLC for him and said they had over 700 at one point.  I think they have the Legends and TLC confused in the computer.

comic packs up to $15 - they had 3 leia xizor packs...
Clearance:  AT-TE $50, Evo packs for $12.50, GI Joe Pit $65, and to my surpise all Marvel Universe figs clearanced to $5 in the clearance area - no home for them in the main toy dept...

I haven't taken him out of the package yet, and I have this strange guilty feeling that I ought to actually return it. Time will tell, he is one of the figures missing from my refocused collection, but are my collecting days over for real?

TRU.com now has the both the Legacy and Legends BOGO packs up for sale.  Only thing is they are russian roulette - so you don't know what 2 figures you will be getting. 

You can end up with a bunch of figures for $4.50 or so including shipping and tax.  Not terrible considering people pay $2-3 for droid parts and i am sure one could sell off unwanted figures for a lil extra scratch.

So far I have only seen and heard of the ROTJ, TPM and ANH waves being in these BOGO packs.  I was lucky enough to obtain all of the figures from those waves through the BOGO packs at Target.  I wonder if these BOGO packs at TRU will be the same waves...

It would be hella cool if they were figures from the EU wave...  i can dream, right? 
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: JediJman on February 11, 2010, 02:49 PM
Interesting - getting the EU wave as Bonus Packs would be incredible.  I also noticed they have their figures marked down to just $6.99 online.  Anyone know if retail stores have followed suit?  They currently have the Bespin Guard from W12 in stock (along with others) at that price.

Picked up a Resurgence of the Jedi BP at my local Target. It'd been sitting there for a few weeks, so I decided to pull the trigger and bring it home. I'm glad I did- it's a great set.

Picked up another two Concept Snowtroopers, the repacked VOTC Snowtrooper and an AT-AT driver.

I also picked up the GI Joe movie Ice Dagger vehicle - I wanted to give the Concept Snowtroopers their own ride and I thought the blue snow vehicle would compliment the blue in their armor. I have three of the Concept Snowtroopers in it and (at least to me) looks pretty good.

Picked up Willrow Hood, Ewoks, and Rancor Keeper earlier. Finally finished off the ROTJ wave, and all I need is Zuckuss, Cody and the ANH wave Jawa and I'll be done with TLC personally (I did skip A LOT though).

Nope. I have the super rare error version where his name is Jim Johnson.

For the 1st time ever I came across the ROTS and ESB Waves, and BOY did I feel like a kid! I was amazed to see all the new stock! I purchased Plo Koon since he's my favorite Jedi, and I was upset not to find Cody. I actually saw the Hoth Luke, but I grudgingly passed on him - same with Zuckuss. I would have glady bought another figure, but I was a dollar short!  >:(

I've been buying a couple extra figures at Wal-Mart lately.

I've gotten a couple more Scanner Technicians there for $6 which is great.  I'm glad he's being repacked with the Empire Strikes Back wave.  I also got a couple Gungans and an extra Death Star Luke so I could have one "holding daddy" while he croaks on my display shelf.

I have also been picking some extras here and there. The lower price has made it way more palatable. I picked up another Hoth Luke (Designated Pilot for the Upcoming SS), Bespin Guard, Scanning Trooper to use with my AT-ST. (Helmet fits great on him) and the Muftak from CW.

I'm surprised that the revised ESB case is hitting hard at my local stores. Scored Agen Kolar and Zuckuss (boy, is Zuckuss short!). The individual ROTS and ESB waves weren't hitting AT ALL for the longest time, but my local Target did the smart thing by ordering the ESB revision case... which included the ROTS wave!  :D

I scored a slew of great figures at a local convention. I was, simply put, in Star Wars Hasbro heaven! I scored the ROTS Commander Cody, Kyle Katarn CP (FINALLY!!), ESB Hoth Luke, and TPM Holo Palp. I also scored some older era (ROTS 2005 Aayla Secura, PTJ Plo Koon and Aurra Sing) figures. I was amazed to find a whole stand dedicated to TLC red-phase figures!

Finally got a Dewback.  Despite his prequel era look, I think he's pretty cool. I really like the detail that went into the sculpt and the articulation on his feet.  I'm not sure I'm ever going to get the cool trooper to sit with any measure of realism though...

Picked up the Imperial ARC on clearance at WM for $40 with a $5 off coupon.  I'm such a sucker for repaints, but this was much better than $65.  I think $40-$45 would have been a better price point for the dlx assortment IMO.  It's a shame that they overpriced this and the Y-Wing.  The dlx line is dead, right?

I picked one up for $45 shipped and it's a really nice repint. I agree with you on the price it should have been.

back to topic:

I picked up the R2-MK set off eBay for $29.95 shipped.
This product drought really sucks, even the Joe guys are feeling it too. They bored and waiting for new product in the Fall as well. Hasbro is banking too much on Iron Man (Which will sell well) as they let their other brands suffer....

Product droughts leads to anger. Anger leads to disinterest. Disinterest leads to the line suffering.

I've seen some old stuff resurface lately too at different stores.  April's usually when inventorying is wrapped up for most stores, so I've chalked it up to that.  My local WM put out more BOGO packs that I'm guessing got lost in the shuffle, and I noticed some older figures from a previous Legacy case with their respective droid parts...

Nothing amazing but I did score some more decent army builders for cheap.

I have been finding mediocre selections at local Targets - mostly mixes of the TPM, ANH and ROTS waves. The ESB wave is slowly making it's way, but I am disappointed that all the ROTS figures are from the ESB case... meaning that I won't be able to build the YV hunter droid.  :(

Not much, but scored Clegg Holdfast from the TPM wave recently. Once I acquire the Amidala figure I'll be finished building L8-L9. I've noticed that the Rum Sleg, Holo Palp, Clegg Holdfast and Amidala figures are harder to find from the TPM wave in my area. The Obi-Wan figure, which should be harder to find, is fairly common.

Ok - so over the past week, here's the Legacy stuff I've picked up:

2x Jacen Solo
2x Jaina Solo
3x Phase I Dark Trooper
3x Bespin Wing Guard Utris M'Toc
2x K'kruhk
2x Shaak Ti from The Force Unleashed
2x Spacetrooper

3x The Force Unleashed Box Set 1 of 2
3x The Force Unleashed Box Set 2 of 2


So now all I need to do is try to score one more Phase 1 Dark Trooper and two more Spacetroopers and I'll be done with The Legacy Collection. Yeah!!!

It also applies to the Evolutions sets - I picked up the Secret Apprentice set and the Jedi Set this morning. Getting the new TFU box sets really got me jazzed about the game (and it's upcoming sequel) again, since I have spare Starkiller figs from the two opener box sets I picked up, I want to set up a display of all five Starkiller/Galen Marek figures on my desk at work, so I picked up the Apprentice set just for that reason.

I plan on trying to customize some Jedi using the bodies from the Jedi evo set.

Might pull the trigger tomorrow on the two Rebel Pilots sets, wanna get a pair of the Snowspeeder pilots to man one of the two Snowspeeders I'm gonna buy this fall, and I heard the Jaina head works great on the female Rebel Pilot body, so if I can score an extra Jaina in my travels, I'd love to make a "Pilot" Jaina figure since that's how she's depicted in a lot of places.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases

I got 2 each of the TFU battle packs, 1 full set of wave 13 and even snagged the Alien Bespin guard and a concept Snowtrooper..

Today I scored:
TRU TFU set 1 x2
TRU TFU set 2 x2
White Alien Bespin guard

All at the sale prices. Figures are $4.99 flat so you do not have to buy two to get a deal. I missed the 1 case of EU wave they got in. I have a solid contact at this TRU and found out they put them out last night before they closed. I have these on order from BBTS but I rather pay the sale price and not have extras I have no use for.

The shelves were a complete mess, and the only CPs on-shelf were a single Leia/Xizor set, and the Luke/Lumiya set tossed atop a mess of BPs.

Good score.  I'd like 4 Darktroopers, but beyond that I can't see me buying more of this wave if I find them.  I'll be happy with a "1 and done" scenario on this stuff.  I doubt I'm lucky to find that Phase 1 Darktrooper at all, much less multiples.

Picked up five each of the Spacetrooper and the Dark Trooper figures from the EU wave.

So now I'm done with this wave - and this time I mean it - including this purchase, I now have squads of 12 of both the Spacetrooper and the Dark Trooper. I haven't army-built a trooper figure like I did with these in a LONG time.

Just got my HTS order of Sandstorm Luke, Han, and Chewie so I can finish R4-D6.  Well, Han didn't come with the left leg like he was supposed to, he came with the left arm of MBRA7   >:(

I contacted HTS about this and I explained that the reason I bought all three of those figures was to finish of this droid to build, and that the Han was shown in picture with the part I needed, yet he didn't come with it.  The customer service rep was very understanding and he raised my concern to "escalation" so it will be taken care of - we'll see - if not I already found someone who might have one for trade.

I am sure someone else has ran into this beofre with all the droid/figure variations out there - anyone bother calling HTS on a similar issue?
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: iFett on May 13, 2010, 04:57 PM
I wouldn't bank on getting any of the droid parts the figures originally shipped with as I'm pretty sure most of the figures on HTS would be from revision cases - could be wrong though.  Hope you can get that worked out!

SOOO took advantage of the $4.99 figures at Target! I used a giftcard to buy figures that I didn't really have any special interest in and wouldn't have made it into my collection... got Srgt. Edian, Wilrow ICMG, and Malakilli. Everything else at Target was crap... I'm so pissed at seeing countless Saesee Tiins, Yularens, and Kit Fistos grace the pegs.

$11 Storm Commando and General Weir comic pack at Wal-Mart. Not a great bargain, but...

Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on August 4, 2010, 11:23 PM
Not bad though.  At that price I'd gladly rebuy the Mohc set and make a cooler Mohc using it I think, and I'd love to get the Commando set for that price just to make the General in an Imperial uniform...  I never bought that set because I didn't care for its Commando figure and only wanted the one guy.

An amazing find - I went to Costco and found a slew of BPs - 2 BPs taped together for $24. :o What a deal!

The variations were Mustafar/Kamino Conflict, Kamino/Battle for Endor, and Geonosis Assault/Mustafar.

In my area, Target carries BPs for $26.99 - WAY too overpriced. So 2 BPs for $24? That's awesome.

Costco was also carrying vehicles for $24 - I was able to see the Magna Guard Fighter.

My WM finally dredged out their toy remainders and dumped them into the clearance aisle, so I picked up a General Weird/Storm Commando comic pack for $11.  I'd waited on this figure forever since I didn't want to pay full price.  Then the comic packs disappeared.  Now they re-emerge for clearance, so that was nice.  Thought I just missed out.

Was hoping for $7 or less, but $11 will suffice.

Pondered picking up Mohc/IGBattledroid too...  Passed at the price though.

They also had Xixor/Leia lingering in bulk.  Tons of those sets.

That's all that's around at any WM here though, so nothing too great.   :-\
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Scockery on September 26, 2010, 06:22 PM
They've had those packs at Wal-Mart here for 2 months without ever reducing them below $11. I'd get the Mohc set (there was only left) or another Weir set at $7, but I'll never catch them at that price if it happens.

Got the K-Mart Clone Squad for $10.40. It's decent at that price, since I didn't have the Obi-Wan or red ARC Trooper. Wish it had a clone other than the SCUBA one...I hate the way that figure's shoulder paint chips off so easily. Surprisingly it was the last set the store had, weeks ago they had like 10.

Post by: Jesse James on January 4, 2012, 02:38 PM
Both really good figures EpicGon...  The AT-AT Driver I was kinda down on at first, but that's one that I wound up warming up to.  It doesn't replace the Saga At-AT Driver (which, IMO, is what Hasbro should use as a standard for articulation, and start maybe scaling back articulation on 3rd tier characters like Senators and stuff to that level, and maybe make figures a little more affordable...  ahem :) ), but the new AT-AT Driver just added to the diversity IMO.  They look good together, like there's some height/uniform fit differences.

Cool thing too was the AT-AT Driver's head...  Yeah it's a Clone, and the Empire didn't use Clones (:P) but it was modified to have that late 70's/early 80's hair style...  You had to give a nod to Hasbro on that effort.  With a different paintjob, that's a unique looking guy and not a Clone, so I kinda wish Hasbro would just paint them in different ethnicities to just appease us, haha.

Picked up a CHEAP (yes, this is true) Phase I Darktrooper at the Steel City Con show today...

Maybe my best pick up of the day.  Guy wanted $10 which is sorta cheap for this one in its own right, but not retail.  I saw he had $4/per loose figs in a case.  Saw he had 3 of Mace Windu's Clonetroopers...  I wanted those.  I told him I'd take those, and the DT, if he'd do $20...  $5/per on those seemed quite fair to me. :)  Bundling is fun.

I agree...  It's great but I dug the McQuarrie one more.  Still all the concept figures but the Stormtrooper were as good or better than even most of TVC...  A few TVC were top notch too (Ponda, RFT, Gammie) but so much from 2007-2009 was as good or better with pack in stuff and a lower price.

McQuarrie figs are my only carded collection to this day besides a set of silver figs I should sell haha.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Scockery on August 31, 2013, 04:40 PM
The non-McQuarrie one seems more pulp sci-fi novel cover than Star Wars. But that's not a bad thing. Not sure why they've never revisited concept art figures, I assume it goes back to Hasbro hating (collector) money.

A couple of days ago, Target had five of the ROTH-DEL MASONA VS. SUPER BATTLE DROID sets for $17.95 each (orig $12.99). They were actually in the computer system and in great shape. They must have found them in the back and put them out with the new reset. Of course, I didn't buy them.

With the Clone Wars animated line having ended, I am finally getting around to running down some of the realistic-style characters from the original Tartakovsky series. I loved the animated figures for that show but never really got into the more realistic interpretations, although some of them seemed pretty cool.

I finally started building a list this year and between the Legacy Collection BAD line and the TAC line, there's really not all that many to worry about, about 13 total I think?

In the past week or so I have picked up the Quarren Soldier, Mon Calamari Warrior, Snow Bunny Padme and the IG Lancer droid for about $5-$6 or so on average, courtesy of eBay. Not a bad deal to fill in some of these holes.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on January 20, 2014, 01:21 AM
Depends on your POV...  I was thinking there were more...  Can't recall.  Not in Legacy, but the line's realistic figures in its original Clone Wars packaging seemed fairly plentiful like the Durge figures, which there are 3 of technically, Obi, Ani, Mace, the Clone 3-packs, Droids of course... 

If you're talking Legacy it was limited for sure.  The BAD was possibly the best though.  Love that guy.  Great accessory flame parts.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: McMetal on January 20, 2014, 08:41 AM
Yeah, good point, I'm still on the fence with the pre-animated Clone Wars line they did that had Durge and those guys. I'm sure I will get there someday.

I believe there were 8 figures released in that Legacy wave:
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Clone Scuba Trooper
Saesee Tiin
Padme Amidala (Snow Bunny)
IG Lancer Droid
Mon Calamari Warrior
Quarren Soldier
Clone Trooper

and then in TAC we got:
Roron Corobb
Yoda & Kybuck
Anakin Skywalker (Tattooed)
Voolvif Monn
Clone Trooper (Hawkbat Battalion)


I think that's it? I know there were some later one-offs too like L8-L9, but I think that covers 'em for the most part. If anyone else knows of any others I missed (outside of that realistic Clone Wars line) I would be keen to find out.  :)

L8L9 was a BAD from Legacy...  and Fordo of course double dutied as the ARC Sergeant/Coruscant Battle Fordo.

Blue ARC Troopers are debatable of course and came in various forms...

You also forgot the Quad Cannon Clone Trooper from Legacy/BAD.

I forgot totally about the Hawkbat Batallion Clone Muftak mentioned!  hah, that was a cool assed variant.

I think I'm the only guy on Earth, but I really wanted the cat-guy from the arena battle that Assajj offed.

And of course, there's a few Assajj figures to pick from in realistic format. :P  I never did get one I was totally happy with.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: McMetal on January 20, 2014, 11:26 PM
The Quad Gunner was actually the Clone Trooper figure I mentioned in my list, BD16.Fordo I was lucky enough to get a couple when he came out, awesome figure. And yeah, there are a few Asajj's I need to look into, no doubt about it.

I totally forgot about Foul Moudama though! Great catch! I am adding him to the list for sure.

Imperial V-Wing at a yard sale for so cheap it's a crime. But missing some wings...the canopy (almost always) and the missiles. That said, I much prefer incomplete V-Wings to ROTS Jedi Fighters that I often find.

Also, Concept art Luke with just his mask and pack, McQuarrie Snowtrooper (no gear) and a headless Concept art Rebel Trooper (no Gear)
And a helmetless stormtrooper Luke.

I think those are Legacy collection.  Does it matter? No one reads these posts.  ;)

McQs are 30AC but Luke is Legacy/BAD era iirc.  Been a while.

Impy Vwing is I think 30AC and an exclusive I thought?  Now not sure.  07-09 was, for my money, the golden era of the hobby and blends together.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Scockery on August 19, 2017, 10:44 PM
Technically, going by the fact I found 3 McQuarrie figures at one garage sale and they were kid abused.
They were likely reissues  from this Legacy boxed set:
 
Quote
McQuarrie Signature Series II (Diamond/TRU)
Rebel Trooper
Starkiller Hero
Luke Skywalker
Darth Vader
Stormtrooper
Snowtrooper

The IMPERIAL V-WING was actually a red-line Clone Wars (Legacy) Saga Annivesary Dark Shadows Legends Collection 2009-2010 Toy Czar Rus exclusive. The ROTS Republic  V-Wing debuted in 30th. I think. This is all confusing. Old Rebelbum.con doesn't even have pics of the McQ mulit packs based on the old John Wayne movie.
Title: Re: Recent Legacy Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on August 20, 2017, 04:53 PM
Forgot they did a pack of those.  The VWing def came out in a republic color first in 30AC and I knew the impy was exclusive but I never picked one up.  Wish I had now because I'd like a couple VWings to do as Rebel refits.  Same on JSF's and V19's...  I figure they're all Rebellion fair game.
