Re: Rochester Thread 72

This morning 3T had a fresh case of new MU. I picked up Warpath & Vision, and left the others on the pegs. SW pegs were filled mainly with CW, they had a few ROTS remnants.

The Vestal, NY Wal-Mart received a new case of ESB Legacy this morning (their 2nd case) so I was lucky to get Luke pilot and Zuckuss. I also used TRU's flyer from last Sunday so I got them for $4.98 each!

Thanks for the heads up. Very encouraging since some folks are still trying to track those down.

Stopped at a couple of places this morning while doing some shopping, but only saw ANH, ROTJ, ROTS & TPM remnants.

Rite Aide has the exclusive Crimson Empire figure set. 20 bucks isn't too bad for 6 figures.

Also, the sale that ends today on the action figures there, I was able to use on the set. 25% off made the set even better.

If anyone spots the TIE Fighter with the Rebel symbol at Rite Aid...I need that ship still. I never saw it.

Plenty of Crimson Empire sets, but I already had that one.

Re: Rochester Thread 72

Just watched ROTS, & noticed something. The whole controversy of Leia remembering Padme should have never been an issue. Obi holds Luke and I don't think he tilted him so he could ever see Padme. Right after Leia is born, it cuts to Vader being put together, then cuts back to Padme dying. We really have no clue to how long the time between the scenes was so Padme could have been holding Leia for awhile (enough that Leia remembers) & had just given her back to Obi-Wan (who had passed Luke to someone else). Obi is holding a baby but they don't indicate which one. But as far as I'm concerned, this OT-PT 'mystery' has been solved.

It still sounds like the robots have no clue about human anatomy since it asks Obi-Wan, both times, 'is it a boy or a girl?' No wonder Padme dies, it wasn't due to 'giving up the will to live', it was just crappy medical service.

Maybe Leia was referring to her adopted Mother?

Re: Rochester Thread 72

Yes true, but it would make sense if she would of never known she was adopted to keep the cover of being Bail's daughter and not Anakin's. So in Leia's mind her "real" mother was her adopted mother and not Padme.

You also have to remember that Leia has force abilities and may have been in an empathic connection with her mother.

Re: Rochester Thread 72

If memory serves:
Luke was delivered first and was asleep when Obi-Wan was holding him......followed by leia who's eyes were open....thus she possibly 'eyed' her mom on the table and was aware of what was going on.
Reminds me of ~Children of the Damned~....thanks for creeping me out.

I think she died because her Medical Coverage didn't include Asteroid Hospital Visits in her medical plan. She had used up all of her out-of-network expenses.

A Scummer from Arizona found newer red logo Legacy figures at Target in stickered together BOGO style (like Wal-Mart recently sold)!
Take a look at his pic in the Legacy Recent Acquisitions thread.

Re: Rochester Thread 72

Does anyone have this exact carded Vulture Droid Titanium vehicle to sell?
This version hit retail for the Clone Wars launch and I'm looking for one that has the silver foil logo sticker, an undamaged hang hook and an undamaged bubble.
PM me. Thanks

Re: Rochester Thread 72

Merry Christmas!

Got some decent finds on my trip. The Walmart 3-packs & Ocupararra (sp?) Droid were 50%. Found 3 of the Walmart Droid Factory sets for $10 each. Got the Anakin/SBD set for $13 with a coupon. Just need to find the Fett/3PO set now. I saw the Y-Wing for $42 but didn't get it.

The Transformers & GIJoe Walmart excl were also 50% off (didn't include Skywarp)

Seen 50% off the Oct Droids and the GIJoe gear but nothing on the AT-ST/BAD packs locally yet at Walmart.

I'm waiting for the Rhino to go on clearance at Target.

Re: Rochester Thread 72

I am looking for the Star Wars Transformers AAT in the original Naboo colors.

If anyone can point me in the direction of these, I need to get about 3 of them.

Yes, these are not for the transformer part, but rather, they make excellent additions to my Minis Naboo game. They are of perfect size.

Local targets have the figure 2 packs now, similar to wally world's. however these are of the phantom menance wave of figures. Kinda nice to see that wave put in a 2 for 1 pack. especially when I never really saw that wave on the shelf.
