The Vintage Collection / Re: 2018 Vintage Collection Wave 3

We've only had sporadic sightings here in LA. Half of our WM don't carry TVC and the others order a new case every month. Luckily I managed to pick up everything I wanted on-line.

I kicked myself for not picking up more TIE interceptors from Amazon when they we clearing them out, so couldn't pass up $50 tanks. I added 4 more to my forces bringing my total to 5. That's where I'll stand.

I missed that deal, but finally picked this up for $55. It's on sale at Target for $79.99, got 25% off with the time use digital coupon, then $10 off from the gift card I got from my SW purchase the previous day.

It is my understanding that EE does indeed order and receive solid cases of one figure in addition to the traditional "wave" case.

I'm crossing my fingers for a 2 per case of each figure from this wave. I'm enjoying buying by the case when I can, especially with the added bonus of having the boxes for storage.

Collect All 92! / Re: Vintage Figures Which Have Not Been Updated
« on: November 3, 2018, 12:04 PM »
To pass the time/unwind/get my mind off more pressing matters, I've made lists of random figure stats concerning the original 92(3.)

One stat is that Warok is the only figure that has yet to be released as a single on card.

Setting name updates aside, I think this represents the latest arguable "needs to be updated" from the original 70's/80's line list:

Death Squad Commander/Star Destroyer Commander (solely because of uniform color.)
Power Droid (because of character color)
Bespin Security Guard #1 (the mustache, but I'd take a beard as pictured.)
Imperial Commander (this is an odd one since we have an updated generic black uniformed officer, but Veers is pictured.)
Rebel Commander (Derlin probably covers this one, but the guy on the vintage card has a different uniform.)
Rebel Commando (because the sculpt on the POTF2 one is way too old now.)
Imperial Dignitary (you all know why.)

There are definitely POFT2 figures that should update like EV-9D9, 8D8 and C3PO with detachable limbs, but what we've got, I feel, still holds up.

If everything shows up at once that's great, but I don't know if i have the patience to check that site very day and wade through 50 listings for 3rd party sellers.

The other culprit is Infinity War.

Exactly. I know for a fact that Disney Execs had to be reminded that if TFA and CA: Civil War were both released in May, they'd be competing with themselves. I have no idea why they changed their minds with Solo.

The fact that their exclusives are impossible to search for is also infuriating. I somehow found this on my phone a few weeks ago. I just searched for it on my lap top for you JediJman, typing in the exact heading and it would not populate.  >:(

I called Walmart on this, talked to s supervisor. They were either ignorant of their own policies or blowing smoke up my butt. They have/had palettes of product sitting in warehouses, not selling to people who want it and make it nearly impossible for those people to purchase that product. I know they're only toys, but still. Someone is responsible and someone is causing Walmart to take a financial loss, no matter how insignificant.

I'm probably in the minority, but I'm happy to have a no-frills R2 on a Star Wars card, just for nostalgia's sake. Wish it were the newest sculpt, though, not the BAD.

10 is scalping this thing. I'm not talking about the 3rd party sellers, Walmart proper is selling for $31 and change. Call Walmart, call Hasbro. Protest. I know for a fact that Walmart is contractually not allowed to do this per their exclusives arrangement with Hasbro.

It worked out that I had procrastinated on picking up Bespin Han, so it was a stroke of luck that he's the only hold-over included in the newest wave (Patrol trooper, Bespin Leia, etc.) Therefore, ordering a case made complete sense. I wish it was always this much of a no-brainer to order by the case.

We need a LIKE button for posts just like this one.  Toy Law?!?!  LOL!

I was thinking nearly the exact same thing. Great line. Wish I had come up with it.

I thought these would be much harder to find, glad I'm wrong. Seeing them almost every time I hit a Target. But then again, Target knows how to handle their exclusives.

This Stormtrooper represents the Jedha Stormtrooper from Rogue One, re-using the sculpt Hasbro tooled up for the Mimban Stormtroopers from Solo.  Neither of those troopers had the holster, so no holster on the figure.

Eek! Never noticed that. Although I guess I can't blame Hasbro for being accurate, I still do.  :P

Like getting the Tank Commander. I could go either way with just getting one as an overall commander of my Tank group, or get four to command each of my tanks. (I don't have 4 tanks yet, but that's the goal.)
