Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition

Lots of great pickups lately from everyone. I thought I'd share my scores from CV and WizardWorld Chicago this past summer. Most of these figures are upgrades others are variants I needed. What's especially nice is that with the exception of the Yak-Face, I didn't pay more than $10 for any of the figures below...

R2-D2 (came in an opened baggie), Super clean Boba Fett, Molded Boot Rebel Soldier

Red-Logo AT-AT Driver, Admiral Ackbar, Snap Cape Jedi Luke (actually had the cape already, just scored the minty fig & weapons)

Hong Kong dark stripe Logray, Klaatu Skiff Guard, 8D8


Baggies! AT-AT Commander & Prune Face

Other pickups not pictured include a POTF General Lando with blaster which was used to complete my POTF Endor Luke. Also a funny pickup was a POTF2 Jedi Luke that came with ROTJ Endor Leia's helmet & poncho.

Only 2 more figures for a complete loose collection, maybe 2011 will finally be the year...

The biggest issue I have with the Han is that they put the re-tooling on the wrong part. Instead of giving him a new head, they should have re-tooled the torso - Han's shirt was buttoned all the way up during the medal ceremony. It's great to see the VOTC sculpt back out, but this could have been done better.   :'(

Check your K-Marts for $50 AT-ATs kids + the $5 off coupon doesn't hurt.   :)

Awesome, thanks for posting this iFett! I saw it right before I left work this evening and after striking out at a couple of stores the 3rd time was the charm. With the sale and the coupon, I scored an AT-AT for $50, saving $60 off the regular price + tax. This is no doubt the deal of the year.

next word: spoon

The 12" Fett is very popular, sells out fast. I was lucky to get 1 for myself.  ;D

Yeah, they're running $150+ on evilbay at the moment ::)  Thought about snagging one then thought better of it.

I saw them at CV running for $250, crazy!

It's been a week since CV came and went and now that's I've finally wound down from that I wanted to share some thoughts...

* I should have paid attention as to who was all coming to CV, would have been nice to meet some of the JD crew I didn't meet @ C3.

* Thursday for me was the best day for deals at the vendors, scored some great vintage pickups including a mint Boba Fett for $6! Thursday was also the day to catch up with a lot of old friends - Curto, Niubniub, old Listserv and BHC folks - as well as meeting new folks like Jayson, the Hasbro team, and several people at the Yakface/SWAN party. The Yak/SWAN team did a fantastic job for their party, it was a great atmosphere with loads of fun.

* Got to sit front row for the One Man SW Trilogy, that was a great show. The guy running it does a fantastic job of hamming it up and expressing visualizations without props. The control of lines by the con staff for this show was a bit hampered by the humongous line for Mark Hamill. My only complaint for the show was the poor handling of some of the lines, especially the entry line everyday.

* Huge props to the Belgium propmasters for bringing their full scale TIE Interceptor and Millennium Falcon Outrider interior. The details on all of their pieces were fantastic and they deserve all the kudos they were receiving throughout the weekend. The same goes for the Rebel Legion and their Snowspeeder and the crew who put together the Jabba/Cantina scene - I could never get in to the scene the line was always so long!

* The various panels were fantastic - Gus, Chris G, Duncan, and everyone else involved put together intriguing discussions on the various topics. I especially enjoyed the "Filming Locations" panel as I found out lots of details about various sets that I never knew - I always thought the Lars Homestead hut was an actual building in Tunisia, turns out it wasn't. A shame though that so many people were only interested in the cereal boxes and not the content of the panels, it made for some rather rude exits at the end of one of the panels I was in.

* Dave Filoni is AWESOME! If you were there and went to any of his sessions, especially the Saturday Clone Wars session, you understand why I say this. Do NOT hide what is inside! Can't wait for Season 3 to begin, Dathomiri Nightsisters, hell yeah!

* The entire Hasbro team deserves kudos as well, they were very open and willing to discuss whatever topic was on people's mind. Their displays were over the top cool, the Build-A-Droid trading idea was great, and getting to play with the R/C Hailfire Droid was sweet. Also getting to see a few hints at the sculptor's (Dave something or another :P) booth was cool - 2011 Han headsculpt was a big surprise, likely the Bespin Han since Derryl went all "no comment" on it. :) It was also interesting to sit on their panel to get an idea how it is ran, too bad they went too long would have liked to hear questions from the media.

Though by Sunday I was beat and had no desire to walk the halls any further, I wish CV had not ended. It was a great time and a stellar effort put on by everyone involved.

i'm the only one reading the presentation slide expansively to say that this will be part of an assortment of OT vehicles...

During the presentation, this slide was at the end and time was short, so they just mentioned this one set.  But yes, the slide does say "Saga Vehicles with Figure", which could mean anything.

It could mean a new exclusive assortment of new sets from the movies ('Saga' usually means all six movies, not just OT).  Or, it could be like the last time TRU carried an exclusive "Saga Vehicles with Figure" assortment, which ended up being just a repainted STAP and repainted Speeder Bike.

In other words, you may be right that there will be more, but since there is a high likelyhood that the other sets will just be more repaints/repack sets, no one really cares enough to comment on it.

This set is definitely part of the TRU exclusive deluxe vehicles that started late last year / early this year with the STAP and Speeder Bike. I personally saw no hints of what the other OT "item" is going to be, but I'm hoping Jesse's right and it's an update to the VME, that wold be so sweet! More than likely though we'll see another speeder bike with either Luke or Leia.

I'd like to see more Rogues done as well, and EU pilots, but they seem to be able to slip them out to retail easily enough.  

I wouldn't mind seeing some of the older pilots redone too.

Darryl agrees with you.  :)

You keeping something from me?  :-X

Yeah, we'd heard Rogues were high on the list in a Q&A at one point I think...  I just hope they don't abandon the older sculpted pilots is all.  Biggs is gargantuan and I think he's actually nearer to Luke's height (ironically), and now we could finally get average height Rebel X/Y-Wing pilots.  I'm game for that.

Talking to Derryl at the Yak/SWAN party - sorry Jayson that I talked his ear off when you were trying to catch up with him  :P - I found that he's a big fan of the Rogues and wants to find a way to get more of them out. Hopefully the EE set goes well and they'll have a precedent to do more as there's a desire to make more of the Rogues and comic packs in general.

Thank you sir. You are a gentleman and a scholar my friend.

My list for EU figures hasn't changed since last year with the exception that I've re-added the Noghri since it appears questionable now if that comic pack with the Wookiee will be released.

1.) Corran Horn (Rogue 9 GREEN Jumpsuit from X-Wing Novels)
2.) Corran Horn (Jedi Master from NJO)
3.) Corran Horn (CorSec Officer from X-Wing Comics)
4.) Keiran Halcyon (I, Jedi)
5.) Noghri (Thrawn Trilogy)
6.) Mara Jade-Skywalker (Jedi Master from NJO)
7.) Mirax Terrik (X-Wing Novels/Comics)
8.) Bollux w/ Blue Max (The Original Han Solo Trilogy)
9.) Joruus C'Baoth (Jedi Master Clone from Thrawn Trilogy)
10.) Kiro w/ Hoojibs (Marvel Comic Series)

Wait is the regular price $9.99 for these figures?

At TRU for now it is, but Target's DCPI (posted by Jeff) rings up the figures at $7.99. So my guess is TRU is taking advantage of the situation of having the figures in stock first by jacking up the price.

An interesting note, I went to a TRU that several local collectors were able to get the figures earlier this week. Nothing on the shelves including no price tags. I asked at the customer service desk if they had any in the stock room and they said no they were cleared out. But the guy mentioned that after the first case was let out early (he referred to the street date as being today), they got permission from corporate to let loose on the remaining cases. Take that for what it's worth, but it could possibly mean that TRU as a whole is either ignoring Hasbro's street date in their own or has permission to do so from big H.

Target's in Chicagoland are clearing out left-over stock of the Wedge Antilles X-Wing for as low as $12.48. I was able to pick up a few last night for myself and a fellow collector. It's a great deal and I'm glad I held out on the set, if you held out too now might be the time to check your local Bulls-eye.

For anyone outside of the US who is already able to buy these at retail, can you give a description or image of the backside of the card? I don't believe Hasbro released a photo of the backside and I'm curious to see what they did. I'm hoping it's someone stylized like the old vintage cards.
