They don't think it's a Target exclusive do they? ??? :(

Actually, yes - at the moment, it is planned to be a Target Exclusive item.

Courtesy of Ryan over in the MN Store Reports Thread:

Listing from the Target Computer:

TIE Fighter w/Figure
DPCI = 087-06-1496
$39.99


$40!   >:(

Good Grief! 

Wasn't the KB Version with the figure like $30?  So that means an extra $10-15 just for the new wings?   ::)

Sure, I'll end up buying the damn thing, but it's times like this I hate myself for my SW OCD...  :-\

Anyone who wants to order from robby.jp better do it soon as I got this e-mail last night:


"This is Ryo from RoBBy, Inc. I would like to inform you the reservation date of following item(s) is closing soon.

# 10079939 Kubrick / Star Wars 5 - Unit Price 6864 Yen / Please see the picture !

All you procrastinators better make sure you get your Series 5 order placed ASAP!   ;)

Also, you CANNOT cancel after the closing date, so if you are thinking of changing your mind, you better do it soon!

If you guys want, I can go ahead and try to break up this thread so there is a separate thread for each of the 4 previous months... that way there would be one thread for each submission/month.

I may not have time to get to it tonight, but I can get to it this weekend if you guys would like me to do it (I am a Mod on this section after all thanks to my paltry customizing skillz :P).

Jeff

ps.
Greg, I love that Bucket-Bot!  Great use for a headless Astromech!  Very nicely done!   :)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: What ROTS Repacks do YOU want to see?
« on: August 18, 2005, 04:09 PM »
Well, I think it's pretty inevitable that somewhere down the road we'll see more repacks from the ROTS line.  Mostly I picked army builders in my list.

That may be true, it is probably inevitable that Hasbro will end up doing some repacks, but your question was "What ROTS Repacks do YOU want to see?" 

I just answered it honestly - I don't want to see any!

Now, if your question was something like "What Repacks would YOU not totally hate seeing again when Hasbro eventually forces them on you?"  Well, that's a different question entirely...  :P

Wow.

I think the last video game system that I bought at (or near) the launch date was my Sega Genesis.   :P

I've managed to skip picking up everything, just picked up the occasional system:

Nintendo --> Super Nintento --> Sega Genesis --> Playstation --> GameCube

I was really tempted by both the PS2 and X-Box, but I settled on the NGC for Rogue Squadron and the Mario franchise (I am addicted to Mario Party games and pretty much all things Mario - Mario Golf, Super Smash bros, etc).

I was kind of disappointed in the pricing options for the Xbox. I was seriously thinking about buying one but now I don't know.

I feel the same too.  I was kinda considering it, but for $400 I don't have to worry about it anymore.  When it comes down to it, I'm a cheap bastard and $400 for the basic system plus extra for the 2nd controller is asking an awful lot.

Then, you figure in $60 per game, plus this new craze of designing "custom" controllers for specific games (like the Jedi Hunter stick) and it's getting a little out of control.   :-\


I may just go pick up a regular Xbox on the cheap, get the SW games I want (And Halo of course) and play that.

That's not a bad idea... the basic X-Box will drop again and as a Nintendo guy, there would be a TON of "new-to-me" games to grab at a low price $20-30 each).

None.  No repacks. 

Almost all of the summer figures (#1-44) are still readily available if you shop around a bit.  The rest (#45-56) are still shipping, no need to repack them IMHO.

Looking at your list Justin...

- C3PO - I'd rather see a new SA Sculpt instead of a repack

- Battle Droid - the only BD I want to see at this point is a Blue/Pilot one

- Red Royal Guard - OK, this guy is probably a pretty good repack candidate

- Blue Senate Guard - Eh, more of an Ep2 figure in my mind and not nearly as big an army builder as the red version is

- Clone #41 - I'd much rather see repaints like Orange/Utapau or Green/Kashyyk than the white #41

- Sneak Preview Wookiee - I'll pass on him.  We've already got Tarfull, Chewie, 2x #43, and 2 more wookiees coming - 7 wookiees is enough!


As you can see from my comments, the only way I could handle any of these figures being re-packed in the near future is if they were repaints otherwise, just pack the new cases (#57-68) with all NEW figures and forget the older ones!

And for you variant hunters out there, the rumor is that the lightsaber on Yoda will be shifting from BLUE to GREEN, so all you MIMB guys better make sure you track down both!    :-X

Jeff

ps.
"I told you so"   :P

I personally don't believe anything I hear from a stock-boy/girl or "cast member" as they like to be called.  We heard the same rumors about the regular star tours figures and other things that eventually appeared at DisneyLand even though they were "DisneyWorld Exclusives."

I'll just let things run their course and it won't surprise me when they do show up in DL too...

Kubricks / Series 5
« on: August 18, 2005, 11:47 AM »
How long did it take for you guys to get approved for you Robby.jp membership? I think I'm going on almost a couple weeks now without hearing anything. Should I be worried?

Yeah, I got approved by robby.jp within 24 hours as well.

But, like Adam said, they are on Holiday this week so it may take a little longer to hear from them this month.

Also, when was the ETA on the TRU boxset #2 that's coming out? Is it supposed to come before, or after, Series 5? I can't recall, and the thought of backtracking through this ominous thread makes me a little nervous...


I don't think there was an exact date given because I don't think the set was officially announced on the web-site yet. 

If I had to guess I'd say that we'll see Series 5 in November and then the TRU Set in December

Hmmm, I wonder who bought those last 20? 

Looks like it was some dude named Kimberly... that's a pretty lame name for a dude if you ask me.   :P

Cocoa Krispies...



I ususlly take them straight, but when the box starts getting low (and I know there is no grocery trip in the forseeable future) I have been known to cut them down with regular rice Krispies to make them last a bit longer.   :P
