This post is to let your fellow Cannuck collectors if you have found any ROTS stuff at your local retailer.

Don't forget to mention where you are located and where you found them. Also if you can provide proof ie: pik or reciept scan, that would be great too.

I personally have not found any Prev Figs in the Toronto area.

Has anyone?

I have found preview figs at 2 different Zellers in the West End GTA. I found them early at Zellers between Kipling and Islington on the Queensway, and on the 1st at Zellers at Dixie/Queensway.
Cheers!

Cool thanks!

Weird story. That Zellers on the Queensway at Kipling. I went there the other day and I saw an employee there with an arm full of Prev figs, so I thought I was going to score.

But when I got inside, there were no figs anywhere to be found, just some Saga pegwarmers. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Tons of items in Brampton Toys R us and some now in Oakville. Bought everything on Friday nite ( Feb 4 ) no
preview fighters though.

Now that I spilled the beans that the Snail had (that's right had) Anakin's jedi Starfighter without picking up one of my own! They are sold out.

LOL http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Why didn't I buy one when I saw it?

How many time have I asked myself that question regarding SW collecting?!?!

Well, I hate to say it. Yet another mall that DIDN'T have ROTS. The Cedarbrae Mall in Scarborough, ON was another dud. I figure with a TRU and Zellers in that Mall, something should turn up. Alas, nothing...so I'm still looking.

For you guys that found something at Zellers or where ever, were these just in the section with the regular action figures or did it have its own display stand? So far, I turned up nothing in the action figs areas.

Darth_Tedious
02-14-2005, 03:31 PM
I have only seen them at TRU so far. They are at the TRU in Dufferin Mall and at Sherway Gardens on the Queensway. I'm a Westend Guy. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

At TRU, the figures are only one one peg mixed in with the OTC collection.

Surprisingly, Wookiee Warrior is turning out to be the pegwarmer at both locations.

the Silver Snail, Queen St. location has all the figs for 11.99 ea. And there are some Wookiee Warriors left at Toy Addict on Westminster at Bloor West Village.

No Jedi Starfighter... ANYWHERE! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Guys, hallelujah!! Finally found them Sneak Preview toys at Planet X on St. Clair Ave. Its some what close to my work place, thank goodness.

I only wanted General Grievous from the figs, and there were at least 2 JSFs. They were going for $39.99 each and since I was already there, I went for it. Its a beautiful starfighter. I'm really an Action Fleet fan at heart. But from time to time, I do pick up the some 4" scale ships. The size is very comparable to the first JSF. Check out my pics....

Know what, ToysToysToys was one of the places I checked off as duds earlier, but that was the Hillcrest Mall branch. Seems all the good stuff appears in the downtown locations first.

I love going to the "Snail" as well, but parking around there on Queen St. is brutal. And taking transit there from Markham (where I live) takes a day. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Hey, you have any opennings at your company?? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

BTW, congrats on finding the JSF!! I love mine to death, but I'm looking forward to a smaller version that will go with my Action Fleet collection. The closest thing in the pipeline is probably the Hallmark Keepsake ornament version, but it won't be out for many months. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif Not to mention it'll cost at least what you and I paid for the Hasbro JSF, maybe more.

Well, I didn't get a chance last night to get on and post, but the Zellers in Aurora had the first 24 figures out for sale yesterday. Needless to say it was an expensive day for me! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif I was surprised to see them putting them out because the boxes clearly stated "Do not display until April 2, 2005."

However, I went back today to pick up another Royal Guard and the entire display had been taken down. No sign of them. I guess someone noticed. Luckily they didn't notice until after my purchase was complete.

Just got back from Walmart at the Dufferin Mall. They had one of those shelf stocking sheets up that is a map for the stocking person to know where things go.

There were 3 pegs dedicated to "SW Ep3 Basic Assortment."

A girl there told me that the pegs would be stocked by later today or tomorrow.

There were a bunch of OTC and Saga pegwarmers there, so I don't know if these pegs will be filled with new or old stock.

I am going to venture there later tomorrow to find out and will let you know the score! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Darth_Tedious
03-18-2005, 08:48 AM
Peeps in the ROTS threads seem to think that none of the figs will be considered rare. Hasbro has apparently evened out the numbers in their box assortments.

I think that rarity will be dictated by the popularity of the item. Which is kind of how it should be! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I checked at Walmart today and the chart for where to put items is still up and a bunch of empty pegs.

There are a lot of OTC and Saga pegwarmers out. I think they might have opened another case.

I don't think there is going to be any ROTS leaked early at this Walm art. I would be surprised if there is any ROTS on April 2 here! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

It went WELL! I saw a couple of guys heading out with baskets full of SW booty on my way in, so I thought for a minute that I missed out. There wasn't much there until I found a huge selection at the end of the aisle! I'm glad I took the time to root around. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I picked up:

-Kit Fisto #22
-Mace Windu #10
-Obi-Wan Kenobi (Kick) #27
-Mon Mothma #24
-Yoda (Spinning) #26
-R2-D2 (With claw) #7
-Obi-Wan Kenobi #1
-Padmé Amidala #19
-Super Battle Droid #4
-Emperor Palpatine #12
-Chewbacca (Wookiee Rage) #5
-Agen Kolar #20
-Shaak Ti #21
-Grievous' Bodyguard (x2) #8
-Anakin Skywalker #2
-Plo Koon #16
-Count Dooku #13
-Tarrful #25
AND
-Dlx General Greivous
-Dlx Obi-Wan Kenobi (funky legs)
-Dlx Emperor Palpatine

I was surprised to see even the deluxe figures there! There were no Anakin/Vaders when I got there and I got the last Obi-Wan, but there are several GGs and Palpys.

All in all, I spent $245. I didn't do any army building because I wanted to save some stuff for fellow collectors. Plus there will be plenty of time for that after April 2!

Thanks again for the tip! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I've been looking around, but haven't seen anything. I usually go to the TRUs at Dufferin Mall and at Sherway Gardens. I was at both earlier in the week and didn't see any signs. I guess I should have asked someone.

It might say on the Cnd TRU website. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

**EDIT**

Just checked. There is nothing other than Baby Fest on April 2nd. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif I guess it depends on how whiny the collectors get in order to take advantage of this sale!

That's great about the display signs! LOL! I noticed that all the TRU workers were more chatty and cheery than normal this morning, it was fun.

Thanks to your Zellers tips over the past weeks, I had almost all of the figures already. So this morning I just grabbed the ARC, Barc, Boga and Gunship Re-Paint and the half dozen figures that I had left to pick up. I also picked up the ROTS novelization and the Saga Chess Set. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Too bad about the Holo Yoda. Maybe they'll show up when the AT-RTs do along with the rest of collections 1 & 2. If not, there's always eBay. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Guys,

since its past April 2nd, hopefully the new releases are out in full "force". I'm desperately looking for the Titanium diecasts and model kits of the new ships. Anyone saw any of these at all??? I heard the diecasts were Walmart exclusives but the ones in Markham had NOTHING new at all. Not ever action figures, is that true of other Walmarts in the city? Are the diecast only available in the US?

Also, anyone know when the new books are out? I dropped by Coles and even the employee there seems to know nothing about it.

Please write back if you have any info.

Thanks!!

I've checked the Walmarts in Newmarket and Woodbridge and no sign of the Titanium diecasts anywhere so far. Walmart in Newmarket did have figures 1-32, some sabers, and Anakin's starfighter but not much of anything else. Walmart in Woodbridge had every Lego set and sabers but nothing else.

I think the Woodbridge Toys-R-Us had some model kits, so you might want to check it out.

Thanks Darth Steckley and Tedious. Yeah, I saw the ARC-170 and the new Gunship at Markville Mall as well. Too pricey so I passed.

On a personal note, I can't stand the way they designed the nose of the ARC fighter. It looks like a shorten elephant's trunk. Not very flattering for a starfighter. But I did like the throw back design of the wings.

BTW the Titanium diecasts apparently are pretty hard to find in the US as well. Check out some of the threads in the MicroMachines forum. So if you find some, then they good as gold. I checked Planet X, Hero's World and the 'Snail but neither has them yet, if at all. Unfortunately, the place that they're exclusive for (Walmart) doesn't have them. What a let down, eh?

P.S. Still hoping to find the EpsIII books, but the guys at Coles have no idea about these when I asked.

Hello Canadian SW fans, I have something a little different to present. I know most collectors are interested in 3.75" scale and I collect action figures too. But my greatest passion is SW micro scale. That is, Action Fleet and MicroMachines in the past. And now, WOTC minis and Titanium diecast for ROTS. The micro scale is great because you can do so much for so little. To give you an idea of the scale, the figures in the the pics below are just over 1 inch tall, while the vehicles are about 2 to 3 inches in length.

I wanted to illustrate my micro ROTS "finds" (even though I paid big bucks on ebay for the diecasts) as movie scenes, to make things look more interesting. So I hope you all enjoy a viewing:

Just wanted to let you know that the Silver Snail in downtown Toronto has all of the figures (except for the Blue RG) and the AT-RT.

They are a little over priced at $12.99 each for figures 33, 34, 35, 36, to 40. The rest were $10.99 each.

I picked up the Clone pilot, the Nemoidian Warrior and the SA Clone Trooper as well as the AT-RT, which was $24.99.

BTW, if you're interested in the Blue Guard, the only place I've seen them is at "Planet X" in Richmond Hill (Bayview & Major Mackenzie). They're about the same (higher) price as Silver Snail, but heck if you can't find them at the other retailers, why not. I saw plenty of the the regular "white" Clones at Markville Mall TRU, and many Zellers have them in stock as well.

Another "look what I've found" post for ROTS Minis.

I was lucky enough to score the "Very Rare" vehicles (AT-RT and Grievous' Wheel-Bike), 2 Republic Blue-Guards, and the 3 "Common" Clones at a Planet X on St. Clair Ave. Interestingly enough, the AT-RT is very close in scale to the Titanium version. But due to its lower "crouching" stance, its about 1/2" shorter, and its camoflage paint scheme is pretty unique looking.

Also found at Heroes World at Hwy 7 & Kennedy were: Bodyguard Droids (Magna Guards), Utapauan Soldiers, Separatist Mercenary, and the Yuzzum creature. If there's interest, I'll take some pics of these minor characters as well. For now I hope you enjoy having a look at the minis below:

http://img33.echo.cx/img33/3425/wotcrots4rk.jpg (http://www.imageshack.us)

When shopping for WOTC Minis, I much rather to pay more for a rare one after its been unpackaged by the store, rather than buying random booster packs aimlessly. Both stores I've mentioned have the random packs and individual figures for sale. Anyway, if there are any other micro scale fans out there in Canada besides myself http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif, hope this info helps.

hey there everyone, new to the forum (2 days ago) and just found this canadian part, outstanding. I work at TRU and wanted to let you all know that starting sat 14th, when you buy 3 figs (basic, i think) you will get the holo yoda free. the store i work at in newmarket recieved about 9 cases last week for the promo. I'm the one who takes care of the feature area as well as i work in the action figure area, so if you have any question, i'll answer the best i can. My latest find was the AT-RT at zellers for $19.99 at the Upper Canada Mall. Any idea why the figure in the package isn't the same as the one on the photos on the box?

Also got the entire Sun pin collection on the second day of the promo. went to get 2, TWO, R2 pins at 6am in the morning at my local petro canada and the guy said he was sold out already, i asked how that was possible and he said that one of the younger kids had sold them to some guy on the monday. i complained about that not being how the promo worked and why should i go there if he can't give me the 2 of each pin each day. so he got out 2 of all the others and sold it to me on the spot sweet deal!!! I couldn't turn it down.

In regards to the clone blaster, i think TRU will be getting it, just not till the end of may or june. I've seen them and the greivous blaster at a TRU in buffalo, they just haven't made their way up here yet.

10 DAYS TO GO!!!!! 9 and bit really.

Hi Tedious, were the figs at the SS on U.S. cards or the tri-lingual? I was in the states 2 weeks ago and got #33-36 on the u.s. cards. then got them last week at TRU on the canadian cards. I'd rather have all of one than a mix. I like the back of the u.s. cards, but like the fact the tri-lingual don't have the stickers on the inside of the bubble. Have you seen any of the variants on canadian cards? I've got the blue guard, dooku saber anakin, blue saber palp, and hidden acces. deluxe anakin, but they are all on u.s. cards.

Sorry I should have posted the following here instead of a new thread:

Hey everyone, just to let you knowt that toys r us has recieved the 2nd wave of deluxe figures. I picked up the "rebuild Darth Vader" on the operating table and the clone trooper with firing back pack. Also available are the droid fighter (only saw the green finish with red "eyes" so far) and yoda on the can-cell. I work at the TRU in newmarket and we got 6 cases of this wave in. If you want to ask if they have them as for the case that ends in "21". Cases "22" and "23" are just the first wave. We also got 4 "B" cases. this is the one that has the tank gunner, mas amedda, vader's medical droid and polis massan. we also recieved about 9 "n" cases that have #'s 33-36 with a different assortment of figs packed with it (most notably the super battle droid. nice to see some of these finally on Canadian cards!!

Also I was at the local zellers and found the following lego kits all priced at $3. twin pod cloud car, final duel 1, jedi defence 1 and the tusken raider encounter. got 1 of each for the kids as we just spent all weekend playing lego star wars on the ps2 http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Hi Tedious, were the figs at the SS on U.S. cards or the tri-lingual? I was in the states 2 weeks ago and got #33-36 on the u.s. cards. then got them last week at TRU on the canadian cards. I'd rather have all of one than a mix. I like the back of the u.s. cards, but like the fact the tri-lingual don't have the stickers on the inside of the bubble. Have you seen any of the variants on canadian cards? I've got the blue guard, dooku saber anakin, blue saber palp, and hidden acces. deluxe anakin, but they are all on u.s. cards.



Hey Darth Keg. Always nicec to welcome a fellow "Darth" to the boards. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Just wondered if the yoda will be available in the special I have heard about .. spend $30 on figures and get one free? Or are they for sale?

Darth_Keg
05-11-2005, 02:24 PM
Starting Sat May 14th, when you buy 3 figures, basic I believe, you get the holo yoda free. If after the promo period, there are any left, they will be available for sale at $14.99 (can). Also starting Sat, if you spend $15 (don't quote me on that one) on ROTS lego, you get the mini jedi starfighter free!!!! Check the flyer when they drop tomorrow or friday for details.

Master Replica Lightsabers $149.99 June
don't know if all the stores will have them, guaranteed the 401 corridor gta stores will, other than that....

Build your lightsaber kit $39.99 Sept.
pics of this are in the C3 section.

500th VADER http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif $24.99 June

I tried for 1/2hour to find some kind of blaster, clone, battle droid, greivous. Nothing. I know they have them at the TRU in the states. I'll see if I can find the SKU # and then look it up on Fri night when I work next.

Hey Darth_Keg,

In regards to the clone blaster, i think TRU will be getting it, just not till the end of may or june. I've seen them and the greivous blaster at a TRU in buffalo, they just haven't made their way up here yet.




Hi Darth_Keg,

Are there any signs of the Clones' Blaster role play toy appearing in Canadian stores yet? I'm inclined to make a cross border toy run, but rather not if not necessary.

Thanks again.

Just FINALLY saw Ep3 in theatres the other day (promised my sister we'd see it together). i went to Wal-Mart the right after the movie, and all they had were a million Palpatine's, couple Clone Pilot, a couple Bail's, and a regular clone trooper.

LOL, they also had some Lego, but thats really it. I was really disappointed, then had to go up to my cottage for the weekend right after so i can't go figure-searching until this week. ARG!!!

The Wal-mart in Owen Sound does have a fair selection on occassion.
We have upwards of #41 nowadays but it seems some other collectors pick up the early morning restock or so I think.
Someone keeps nabbing #39 and #40 on me...[censored]! lol

The Wal-mart and Zellers in Hanover have the best vehicle selection north of Orangeville that I can figure.

If you are in the Toronto area, you should check in at a place called Toy Addict on Bloor West and of course the Silver Snail, every now and then. The prices are a bit higher, but they quite often have what you need.

The Addict is great because Pedro (the owner) is a great guy. And the Snail is good becuase they have actually restricted the purchase of rare ROTS items to one per person to help prevent scalping.

DUDE
06-21-2005, 02:09 PM
Ya i go to those places alot, pedro is a great guy, but i still never saw an at-te tank gunner from them. never the less, i just got one from a deal from snowtroopers.ca

Well 2 posts today. The first is regarding my 2 Micro Playsets that came in (finally). I guess most of my fellow Canadian collectors aren't too interested in Micro scale but I thought these are unique enough to generate some interest:

http://img235.imageshack.us/img235/2263/invhandset15hq.jpg (http://www.imageshack.us)

http://img235.imageshack.us/img235/5682/tantiveivset12op.jpg (http://www.imageshack.us)

I'm pretty sure you cannot get the Invisible Hand in 4" scale, and it's unlikely it'll ever be available. As for Tantive IV, I guess there's something similar in the Collector Fleet series, but the ROTS colour trim is only available as the Micro set. Plus Tantive IV has the micro Emperor's shuttle, which again is unique to this scale:

http://img235.imageshack.us/img235/7384/emperorsshuttle0qv.jpg (http://www.imageshack.us)

Now, I would not bore you guys with this detail if I got it on ebay or something. But anyone can order these from Target.com, so it qualifies as an ROTS "find" !! I've been told that they ship to Canada, but to be on the safe side, I had it shipped to a friend in NY state, and he brought it up during a visit. The shipping for within U.S. was like 5 bucks or so, which is VERY cheap for a package this size. Anyway, don't miss this if you have any interest in collecting capital ships. They not that "micro" and they're definitely unique to this scale only.

toyguy
07-05-2005, 08:37 AM
My second post today is regarding this delightful action figure that I found at Heroes World (Hwy 7 & Kennedy in Markham, ON) on the weekend:

http://img235.imageshack.us/img235/1606/attegunner0sr.jpg (http://www.imageshack.us)

Again, I paid $20 plus tax for it, which is way more than I'm usually willing to pay for a figure. But I've really never seen it anywhere else, not even at the SW Expo a while back. Plus I think its the only Clone with a removable helmet, showing a very good sculpt of a clone soldier's face. And the helmet itself is uniquely versatile that can be shown as a regular clone version or a gunner's.

Not sure if this is old news, but I hope this helps anyone who's interested.

Continuing with my "non-mainstream" ROTS Finds report, just like to show everyone the latest offering from Hallmark. Its the Eps III Anakin's Jedi Interceptor form the 2005 Keepsake Ornament Collection. At 5" long, its a good scale for anyone who has ever collected the Action Fleet series. And it boast a nice feature that even the action figure scale version does not have, electronic engine and blaster sounds.

Also, TRU Windsor had the new Unleashed wave. The Yoda vs Sidious is the best unleashed I have ever seen!

Good stuff Gnosis. You should check out my webshots in the Role Play album. I haven't updated with my latest Anakin and Obi-Wan sabers from ROTS yet. But it has just about everything else in terms of Blasters and Lightsabers. Cannot afford Master Replicas but I use Hasbro (electronic and basic), Rubies, and Kenners. Same goes for the Blaster Collection. Just which ever brand looks more realistic.

BTW, I found the new ROTS Blasters at the Cedarbrae TRU, if you happen to be in the Toronto area.

Yeah, tell me about it. After the initial movie rush, the TRUs changed gears to Batman, then Fantastic 4. SW was pretty dry all right. You know those role play Blasters I keep harping about?

But the $9.99 price tag for single figures at TRU is really OUCH compared to $7.44 at WM.

Darth_Tedious

I guess they are going by the numbers of JSFs thathave already sold. I'm sure they did well, but when you go into a TRU, there are lots of these on the shelves.

One weird thing is that the TRU at Dufferin Mall has several ARCs and Gunships, but they are stacked on the top shelf in a different section. No wonder they aren't selling! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Here's the last of the Hasbro Micro Playsets. Although Micro scale, its a good 9 or 10 inches long in vehicle mode. Probably the only "realistic" Turbo Tank toy around. You can pay more for a Lego version, but I could never get into those (too whimsical looking), plus too much work to build them.

Only problem is, its another Target Exclusive from the U.S. I had to buy mine through a friend in Texas. Still since it made its way up here, though I'd post a pic to show everyone....

Thanks Spiff!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif You're one of the few guys who even "comments" on my posts, so any appreciation is definitely well received on my end. Its also good to get some feedback, (most of the time, they just "skip" over my posts like it never happened) http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif. I know that a vast majority of the SW fandom are 3.75" scale collectors so perhaps they're not too interested in other scales. But your reply really made my day!! I feel that all my posts were worthwhile after all cuz I reached a few of you out there. Perhaps I've generated some interest in my beloved Micro scale toys.

Yeah, Hasbro puts most of its investment in the action figure lines so the bulk of its SW products is concentrated there. I collect action figures too. But some times, its really cool to have Micro scales because there are so many nice vehicles and and playsets that are not feasible to do in larger scales.

I used to make toy runs across the border over at Niagara Falls NY. But for latest release stuff, it helps to have a friend in the U.S. In fact, the friend in Texas I was referring to is fellow RScummer "short4astormtrooper". Just checkout the MicroMachines section of the forum. If there are certain items posted that you're interested in, just PM the poster. Chances are, he/she could help you. And fortunately for SW Minatures, most comics stores in Canada carry them.

In terms of cost, yeah I know its tough getting stuff from the US. So you have to be very selective. I try to buy only the items that are absolutely unavailable in any other scale. Eg. Invisible Hand, Turbo Tank. Not sure what the age demographics is here, but I'd imagine I might be older than most of you. So...I've been working for a while, but I still have to save up a bit for each purchase. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Thanks Tedious! I didn't mean to vent or anything. Know what you mean about mortgaging the house. Don't know how many $1000s spent on the habit already.

I think you're right about 'em M&M's. Don't see much appeal in these things. But I'm never one for anything too whimsical or unrealistic looking.

BTW, anyone looking for Shocktrooper, Captain Antilles, or Anakin burnt to a crisp? Found these in the Markham area comics store (Heroes World) Hwy 7 and Kennedy. Costs more than TRU of course, $12 - $14. But I picked them up anyway since I didn't see them anywhere else.

That's exactly what interests me about some of the micros (Invisible Hand, Republic Cruiser, etc.). "Back in the day", (vintage-era) i just loved the micro stuff every bit as much as the figures. My brother and i had the battle-damaged micro X-wing and TIE fighters and played with them so much, they're broken EVERYWHERE! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif That was the tip of the iceberg for that stuff, unfortunately the micros were small enough that mine are almost all lost now. I was handed one of the MicroMachines sets in the mid-90's, before i got back into collecting, and it certainly helped my descent to the dark side.... i mean, collecting hobby. It has a mini Boba Fett, and hey, who doesn't like Boba Fett?

To answer the age demographic thing: 27 with two kids so you can imagine where my disposable cash ends up! But i wouldn't trade it....

Hey Spiff, was that a "transformable" Boba Fett head? Galoob did a playset like that, and it changes into a Cloud City playset. Its really cool alright. I guess I was a bit older when MicroMachines came out in the late 80s (I think), otherwise I'd probably lose them as well.

Hmmmm, I guess I am older as predicted (39 now), also 2 kids. When I get older still, I'm going to have to change my callsign to "toygeezer". http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif Anyway, my older kid is 6 yr old and has recently started his own "collection" of SW toys. That basically means I "collect" them off the floor and return to his toybox. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Not the transformable Boba Fett head, it's an Endor playset (non-transformable) with a mini AT-ST walker and log jam. For some reason, there is a Boba Fett included. Must have been to boost sales. For all i know, there was a Fett packed in with every playset at the time! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

My daughter is 7 and she likes the bad guy figures (and, of course, anything involving Leia or Padme). It's been wonderful seeing the saga through her eyes, and our other daughter is only 7 months so we'll get to relive the experience of seeing all movies for the first time through her eyes.... provided, of course, she's interested.

09-06-2005, 02:42 PM
Ah yessss, the Endor Playset! I have that one too. Can't understand about the Boba figure either. If it came with one, I probably used it for display elsewhere. Since he was never officially on Endor as far as the movie goes. Can't remember if I got that one new or second hand at a toyshow. If latter was the case, then there's a good chance I didn't have all the mini-figs anyway; and Boba would be the first to go "missing".

Yep, the bad guy figures definitely have more appeal. They're more easily identifiable as a SW character. Eg. you see a Storm/Clone Trooper, a Bounty Hunter, or a Sith you'd think SW right away. The good guys are usually just pretty boring looking humans with no armour on. The other day, I picked up a (red) Shocktrooper at my local comics store for like $14! Ethan (my kid) saw it and wanted one too. I told him no way is this going to be a casual present. He's going to have to work for it.

No prob. And to beat Tedious to the punch, the commander with Yoda on Kashyyyk (Gree) is due to be released this fall in the final 12 wave. The one with all the repacks and slightly different paint jobs of figures we just got a couple of months ago. Glad i'm not a completist.... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

Thanks Spiff! I'm not a completist either. But the troopers are my fave. But I'm mostly interested in the ones I've seen in the movies. eg. I saw the green stripe trooper that Tedious was talking about, but I passed. I don't think he was in the movie, and I didn't want to shell out like $15 plus tax for a guy that didn't even have screen time. But Gree and Cody and the Jedi Temple Trooper, for sure I'd get 'em if I see 'em.

Owen Sound seems to have by passed the Bacara wave and went straight to the Antilles wave at least in Wal-Mart.

I'll check Zellers tommorow

I thought I missed the Tarkin wave when the Charred Anakin / Shocktrooper wave showed up at TRU.

It seems that in Canada, the waves are being split up between the franchises. The Antilles / Tarkin waves are at Zellers right now, and the Charred Anakin / Bacarra waves seem to be at TRU.

As for Walmart, the 2 in my area seem to have given up on carrying Star Wars all together. The one in Dufferin mall has 6 or 7 OTC wave and the one on the Queensway seems to be stuck on the 1st wave of ROTS releases.

BTW, at TRU yesterday I discovered x2 POTF2 Death Star Gunners in Bacarra packages. Obviously some one repacked or basically stole a couple of Bacarras. Some people... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

I hope you reported to the employees of the store.
Yes, some people are jerkoffs

Yep. I brought them to the customer service counter and made them aware that this is becoming a common practice. The 14 year summer jobber girl didn't seem particularly interested though. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

I forgot to mention that there are also scads of Wookie Flyers at the TRU at Dufferin Mall as well.

Way out here on Van Isle our WalMarts have finally reloaded with the Tarkin/Antiles, Barracca/clone color var., and crispy Ani. waves. At lease 6 cases were put out.

Just found "Jedi vs. Sith" and "Jedi vs. Separatists" battle packs at the TRU at Sherway Gardens.

They also have lots of Jet Backpack Troopers, Yoda Cancels and Vader Operating Tables there as well in case anyone has missed them.
