Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

Riverhead TRU has the new Saga Legends and Imperial ARC-170.

Riverhead Target had the new CW figures, but no Cad Bane and the Clone Turbo Tank, but were sold out.

Riverhead Walmart had the new CW figures, but no Cad Bane or exclusive packs.

Setauket Walmart had CW 1-11

Setauket Target was nothing special, new Arc-70 though.

Centereach Walmart had the Droid factory exclusives. Wow these were expensive!

TRU Holbrook had the CW Tin exclusive, no Cmdr Ponds yet.

I wasn't too thrilled about the price but yes, I purchased them. A few times I've passed on things that I thought were too expensive or would be cheaper later to have it become rare and a lot more expensive in the aftermarket. Freeze Frame Weequay anyone?
In the grand scheme of things though they aren't crazily over-priced. Two figures retail $7.50 right now is $15, add in $2 for a piece of a larger than normal figure and you get $17. I can deal with that. Would I have preferred cheaper? Yeah, but I can afford this so I'm not going to worry about it.

Comic-Con smiling luke and stormtrooper commander arrived today. Each comes in it's own star case which is pretty tight fitting at the edges, actually pinches a little, glad I'm not a MOC freak!

yea but when hasbro cries that costs are going up, the paper and plastic are about half of what they usually use so the $17 isnt anywhere near it should be in packaging.

Got my Stormtrooper Commander today from Hasbro. Also ordered Joker Sqaud from EE, they dropped the price to 26.99 so that is cool.
