Just read the only way we will get the final wave of vintage is through on line stores.

They had individual figures from that final wave up on Amazon for 12.99 - with prime free shipping I thought that was the best deal I'd see so I pre-ordered the ones I wanted.

Anyone see the Vintage boxed At-St yet? I am able to drive again so I am back on the hunt. I was able to snag the Ewoks and Pilots set at TRU.

I don't know if this will help you or not, but on my way home from Chicago last Sunday we stopped in Merrirrville Indiana (near Hammond) and that K-Mart had two on the shelf. Since Hammond is so close to Chicago, you should be able to find this I believe.

The Bloomingdale K-Mart by Stratford Square Mall has the vintage AT-ST for $34.99. They've also got the B-Wing on clearance for $29.99. No sign of the Endor 2-packs though.

The Wal-Mart on Army Trail Rd also has the MTT Transport for $129.96.

Here is why my wife is awesome.

I ordered a wave of Batman figures (not mint) from Entertainment Earth. The website said I'd get 3 Batmans, 2 Banes, and 1 Alfred. However, I only received one Alfred. When I emailed customer service, they said the website was in error and that the listing was for a figure, not a wave.

After a couple of emails back and forth, in which they said I could send it back for a refund or that they would refund my shipping, I had my wife call. By the end of that conversation, she was on the web filling out consumer complaint forms for California and Illinois. I was convinced I'd be going to the bank on Saturday to have the bank fight the charge; Colleen actually bought paper this afternoon so that I could print out all of the evidence I'd need.

However, her phone call worked. I just got the email saying they were shipping out the other 5 figures.

I love my wife.

OOOOPPS... I think I called her Paulita when we were chattin' insurance talk the other night.. sorry.

I need an extra one or two.

And for the stragglers that don't use facebook, my cousin got me a late Bday present, a Chewie "leather" messenger bag.



I wish it was a little bigger though, that way it could fit a wide laptop, it fits out little one, but not the main one.

If it is a Target exclusive, we'll find a way to get you a couple cost effectively.

Isn't Hasbro's panel today? Where is the news?

Wedge, do you happen to have 3 Degobah Landing Lukes in your trunk from your vintage stash? I need 3 for a future project and can't believe the prices those peg warmers are going for. Let me know if you have any extras or if you see them anywhere(I swear I just saw one on a peg not too recently).

Actually... I might just get some Renegades Airtights and dye him instead.

If anyone was waiting for the TRU podracer pack to go on clearance - now is your chance. It's 12.49 at TRU now, my TRU in South Elgin had a whole bunch so I bet they have them everywhere.

Does anyone know anything about this? I've never seen it before (unless it is old) or heard anything about it.

Exclusive Wolffe Pack Clone Troopers Ultimate Gift Set - Star Wars 2012 Star Wars Exclusives

I am getting somewhat frustrated trying to keep track of what is coming out. It is like Hasbro is deliberately hiding product. I just found out there is a Commander Fox in the Clone Wars line (he wasn't in either presentation, nor is he on the checkist on this site), and they haven't announced that Movie Masters Anakin that has been on display. It is likevthey don't want people looking for their products.

Happy Bday Wedgie!!! :( Sorry, I didn't know, I think I missed Doug's 50th too... but to be fair, there were years I forgot to wish my brothers and sisters Happy Bday and I can't even remember my Step-moms.. so... :D

I honestly can't afford it, or I would just to help you out so you could get one.

Indy, do you have that comic pack Luke? Also, the Vintage Dagobah landing Luke, Ponda Boba and Dr. Evazan? Those are the only things I can think of, Oh, that one guy that looks like Bossk's species in the Cantina, HRCHEK KAL FAS.

EDIT:found his name.

hey all.

just thought i'd give a heads up.

stuck at work yesterday, i called TRU with the item number for the speederbikes. the lady said there was zero stock at any store anywhere in the area.

stopped at the bloomingdale store on the way home anyway (since that coupon was yesterday only), and there were two speederbikes on the shelf. (i picked them up.)

so if you're hunting, be aware that there may be something off about the computer inventory. don't rely on a phone call look-up!

Or they just didn't bother telling you. I never trust to call them.

Can anyone lend me $80?:)

Nice to see you too INDY. Fun times...

That ferocious guard dog of yours definitely keeps your collection safe. I'm missing some flesh in spots.

MSRP + 10% is a good deal. I left a ton of stuff (the cool individual figures, I just bought army builders). I bought up all of his battle droids, Wookies, Jar Jars, and Count Doookus for a massive custom diorama of modern art.

Charlie asked where did all his boxes of LEGOS go? I told him that I had to help a friend get off of one addiction (Hasbro) by transitioning to a new one (LEGO) and some mumbo jumbo about the coming of the "LEGO fairy at the next full moon.". My apologies to your wife and your wallet for encouraging your new LEGO habit.
