The Last Jedi / Re: TLJ 3.75" Figure 2-Packs
« on: August 26, 2017, 08:50 PM »
Saw a lot of the TLJ line at Wizard World Chicago today including the 2 packs. The Rey/Guard set looks really nice and the sculpt on the Fett is solid. What struck me as kinda crappy was the Bespin Han - it's a repaint of the TFA Han which doesn't look good at all.

Thanks Jeff. Disappointing to hear that we're not likely to see any other brick and mortars get the TBS TLJ figures. My concern for my part of Chicagoland that with the TFA Han wave still filling up pegs, the Rogue One waves barely showing up, and the Proto Fett wave never appearing there is such a bottleneck at the distribution centers we won't see the TLJ figures next month. From what I've seen around the net, it appears this could be the case around much of the US, such a shame...

So what's this about TBS 3.75" no longer being exclusive to Walmart? Does that mean other brick and mortars such as Target are expected to receive them? Or does it just mean etailers like EE and BBTS will be able to order them from Hasbro?

I understand the concern with some of the repacks but these will all sell. Rey is Rey and she'll be essential for this collection. Kylo and the Trooper never sit. The RO figures never got any serious distribution. I've never seen Cassian or the Shore Trooper and Jyn and the Death Trooper only once or twice, before Christmas. I was surprised at first by the Hoth Rebel, but didn't realize this is the running change. Completely forgot about that. I wonder if that opens the door to the second Utai.

Indeed these choices on their own are good calls. My concern would be that they are going to be in the first wave, which as we all know will be over produced. So if they clog up the system with repacks to start, it could doom the line before it has a real chance.

JJ - look he has a holster!!!  ;D

Well, hmmm...

I'm gonna need like 5 of those, just as they are.  Then a winter camo, and a desert camo.  Then I'll need 3 to convert to hovering models.  Then I'll need one to convert to a non-combat recovery vehicle.  Then I'll need an up-armored urban one.  Then I'll need a....



So basically, if anyone else wants one of these things, we will need to speak to you.  ;D

Just saw my local Walmart put the 40AC Vader set down to $30.  Probably will not help them move the 2 dozen or so they have but it's a start...

My local Target had TFA figures at $3.84 and R1 figures at $3.98. The deluxe TFA was down to $7+ and the Jedha Revolt set at $12.48. 2 packs were still full price and overflowing the pegs

The guy that wrote that is a little off.  The DPCI confusion would cause higher counts and limit automatic reordering.  However, my understanding of the gray sticker is that the red shirts place these when they come across empty pegs and counts that are off.  When you see the gray sticker, that should be an indication that Target is manually reordering more of these and just waiting on delivery (however long that takes).  Can anyone else confirm?  Maybe I'm not remembering that correctly as I haven't worked there in over a decade...

As far as I am aware​ your description is correct, as I have had numerous Target employees explain the gray dot to me in the same manner as you stated.

Yeah I never saw much amazon talk and basically yeah I figured ad blockers or stuff were a cause.  But yeah I mean I buy a ton on amazon and like to keep it JD friendly.  Again I'm not above begging. :)

It's expensive to run a site!  Jeff (and Paul and Chris before him) all had that burden.

Thanks for sharing JJ, I will be sure to use the link when I make purchases on Amazon. Hopefully that will help the site a little bit.

I'm glad you posted that.  I did not even realize you had an Amazon link.   :-X

Can someone share the Amazon link? My ad blocker is preventing the banner from appearing.

MAY THE 4th BE WITH YOU...and your wallet!


Already gone at that price. A shame, I would have finally bought one at that price

Looking over Nick's post, once again it's so easy to determine how old a site's readership/members are by their fan choices.

JediDefender = 2x ROTJ; 2x ANH; 1x Marvel Comics

BREAKING NEWS - we are all old here now. :P

Ahh yes, but tis a quality list of choices.

Aloo is right for yoo!!

Dorme never burned! That was Corde (I think). Dorme was left on Coruscant when Anakin and Padme went to go hate sand.

I thought Cordi took a ribar through the stomach? Oops sorry wrong verse :)

I hope it's $10 but worried it will actually be higher than it is now.

And everyone vote Dorme!  ;)

Sadly, I fear your worries are going to come true​ :(

Would Dorme come with a burning action feature? :)

Though some may ask why not have TVC out this year, the timing next year is perfect for the 40th Anniversary of the Kenner line. Looking forward to the return as a mass retail item, hopefully at a $9.99 msrp (less would be nice but unrealistic).

Rmember everyone vote Corran Horn for the TVC Fan Choice figure :)
