  1. The 501st stormtrooper was available for quite some time after SDCC, I would expect that R2-KT will be as well. My only question is why no one seems to be asking about when you can start ordering the exclusives from hasbrotoyshop.com. last year they weren't availbable to order until 9 o'clock and even then most of the exclusives were gone in minutes. It took them months to get out some of their exclusives.

  2. I didn't notice any off the TRU truck yesterday, only had me and two other guys to offload the truck. I almost wish I could call in sick at the post office, since the vice president and the person in charge of MERCHANDISING (yes the person responsible for putting the toys on trucks and out to stores) is coming in this morning. I would SOOO love to yell at them and tell them that when something says we need FOUR boxes of product on the floor we should HAVE four boxes of it in the truck. It will be interesting to hear what they have to say, especially since everyone in the warehouse busted our collective butts to get the freight cut down to only 5 pallets and 3 u boats of restock.

  3. Whitewolf, is your store at least getting more than one case a truck? The TRU I work for, I have the fun duty of unloading the trucks. When we were doing the trucks at 5 pm, I would just pick up the figures I need just after we closed--which almost always was one case a truck. Since they have changed the time to unload the trucks to 4 am and I usually am only able to work to 8 am in order to get to my post office in time to deliver the mail, I can no longer do that anymore (cahiers aren't in until well after 9 or almost 10). I would love to know why it is so hard to find them, and whose fault it was not ordering these in an appropriate quantity.

  4. 1. Will there be three packs which will include dvd episodes?

     

    2. Which company has the distribution rights to the DIC and Sunbow Cartoons?

     

    3. Will "overseas" characters like Quarrel and Red Laser from UK's Action Man series be included in the 2008 offerings.

     

    4. Do you expect to have any distribution problems like the 30th Anniversary Star Wars figures are (still only seeing one box per truck when I unload the Toys R Us trucks--yes I have already asked you--but now the management is having a hard time selling the air off of all the EMPTY PEGS, feed us already!!!)?

     

    5. Will the Dreadnoks be sold as a multipack, single pack, or as a vehicle and driver set?

     

    6. Have you heard about a live action film being planned and who would you like to play as whom?

     

    (use either my name or handle--just don't send four guys to kick my butt at FOUR in the morning in front of Toys R Us, I still gotta deliver the mail at EIGHT)

  5. My TRU has the AT AT, and by the end of the week or early next week we might have the new bantha battlepack. They cancelled one of the three trucks coming this week, so I am not sure whether it will show up.

  6. The Newton NJ Wal Mart finally found about 6 cases of the wal mart wave, and only one case of the Appo wave. The TRU I work at got around 4 or 5 cases on Tuesday...unloading tonight's truck might prove interesting, as the TAC figures should be showing up in the next few weeks.

  7. My Toys R Us got about 7 cases two weeks ago. I get to unload the truck this week and maybe another 7 cases will be coming, along with more new stuff. I can't wait for march, since I am now all caught up.

  8. I thought that they packed one Appo per case, though I'm not sure if he is packed one or two in the wave 9 cases that everyone else is slowly getting. I finally found the wal mart wave in Matamoras, PA and they only got about 5 cases and it looked like only one figure was pulled out of them. The entire wave was there including Mace's R2 unit, so I am going to guess that Appo was the only one missing.

  9. One of the wal marts near me stocked up on the greatest hits waves just before new year's and every other one has had about one figure per peg since christmas, so it's just a matter of time before they finally put my wallet out of its misery and they restock all them empty pegs. Good thing I didn't pick up all of the Appo wave figures all at once. I'm still waiting for the Target to put out the new battlepacks they have in the stockroom.

  10. I saw them at the newton wal mart, but then they disappeared from their aisle section location. There were two utapau clones in one pack, moff jerjerrod and the at at commander (can't remember his name) in another, and a few scorches packed in with various peg warmers (one was jerjerrod).

  11. well, at least that'll give me incentive to stop at more wal marts, considering the two packs were nothing new and interesting and waiting for targets to put out the new battlepacks is getting boring.

  12. I offloaded the appo wave on the last truck at the rockaway TRU, and i think they only got around 5 boxes. I hope to see more this coming week. I think it's scary they only have me scheduled for offloading the truck and maybe sundays until things start picking up...most of the other christmas help seem to have either quit or gotten fired.
