Recent Finds/Acquisitions: Vintage/SOTDS

Postby YAK_Jayson » Wed Jun 30, 2010 1:05 pm

Despite the first week of August "street date", I managed to score myself a treasure trove of new goodies at my local ToysRUs today at lunch. Best part, I didn't even have to ask for it as it was already out on the pegs! I picked up what they had of the first Vintage wave (Dengar, AT-AT Commander, Vader, Cloud Car Pilot, 4-LOM and Boba Fett) and the Snowspeeder and Twin-Pod Cloud Car.

I spent a fortune today on Vintage and CW's, i reckon Hasbro is ahead of schedule and i have decided to release the goods.
If i wanted figures like Rebels and Legends series i'd build a time machine. Even if i did want them, i'd probably still need a time machine..

Went back to TRU today and I was shocked to see that they had put out a ton of CW, Saga Legends, Vintage, and a case of vehicles! They must have stocked it all last night after I had them pull a few cases out the other day. There were two other collectors there too going nuts and grabing everything in sight. They had the new CW figured but I passed since I have them already coming from TRU.com. I picked up a Cloud Car and Saga legends Bossk. I'm done for now until the AT-AT, Battle Packs, & Deluxe Packs come out.

Hit one local TRU Saturday morning when the opened, and talked to another collector I know as he was also trying to score the new vintage stuff there too.

They didn't have anything out, so we spoke with customer service who said they had 60 figures in the stockroom but they wouldn't sell them. Then they said they couldn't sell them because of the street date. We told them that TRU didn't have to abide by the street date as an email went out from corporate stating they could sell them... they didn't believe us at first but then they did say that the email had gone out - so then they say they DON'T have the figures and won't until Tuesday (something to do with a mistake on their truck). Who knows. So we left.

I went out of town after that after that for family plans, and swung by the TRU there. They didn't have anything out so I asked - they were very nice, checked the email and a manager was very apologetic for not having them out yet - I told him no problem, and he insisted on seeing what they did have in the back which was a case of the vehicles and some Clone Wars and Legends. I just picked up a Cloud Car and Snowspeeder with the BOGO sale.

Then back in St. Louis last night, I hit a third TRU and bought the following around 7:30 PM -

- AT-AT Commander x 3
- Leia x 1
- Han x 1
- C-3PO x 1
- Dengar x 1
- Dak x 1

Left a ton of Vaders, a couple 3POs, a couple 4-LOMS and a Han.

I got the 3 new vehicles today

Cloud Car, snowspeeder and the tank repaint

couldn't get to TRU in time for the sale so I had to pay full price, but I had a gift card and a coupon so that softened the wallet damage some

I havent even see that one or the Pre Vizsla, much less any worth buying, and now that TRU has shot their prices back up, looks like those two are the only ones I would buy.

I'm thinking they'll drop down in August to $7.99 once Wal-Mart and Target put their stuff out.
