  1. all toy r us's will do it and they will have the yodas as well.
  2. I was surprised to find the new galtic heroes and the new greivois with wheel thing and obi wans star fighter this morning at a target on long island.
  3. Im spoiled.....i have a toys r us, walmart and kb in my town and a target 2 minutes down the road!
  4. *UPDATE* I went back this morning and much to my surprise, the firgures with the altered UPC's were placed right back on the pegs!!!! I was pissed, not for the fact that someone had did this but when I presented the problem to an employee, it basically fell of deaf ears. I went over to a manager and explained it to him AGAIN and he said he would bring it up at the next meeting. oh well, I tried!
  5. I never understood that theory........"too old." I mean, he was like 8 when he finally started training. So, at what age do they start training? while thier in diapers? do they start with levittating baby bottles and pacifiers?
  6. I thought this was merely rumored?
  7. dam, and to think I had 2 silver vaders at one time!

    Holy......

    steve sansweet cheated.
  9. new CLERKS movie?????????? huh?!?!?! I thought the dvd with the alternate ending was the newest one! give me info!!!! i gotta know!!!
  10. I wouldnt use the word "free". CARTOON NETWORK had to pay alot of money for the episodes they aired.
  11. Ok, many years ago, when CLERKS was released, RANDAL & DANTE have a discussion about the "workers" or "contractors" that have died midway thru the completion of the second death star. Now, many years later....we see that there were a countless assortment of other types of "soliders" (battle droids, super battle droids, etc, etc, etc). so, who's to say that the battle droids didnt build the death star and not civilians? thus, making RANDAL'S theory "wrong?"
  12. that pisses me off. I was in Toys r us yesterday and spotted a toys r us exclusive x-wing with r2d2. this was the first of 2 TRU exclusive x-wings. I scanned the price and it read $3.99. my friend whom works there saidf that someone had returned it that day. my son wanted it so I got it for him. when I got it home, I noticed something was missing. to my surprise, it was returned W/O the gear and the R2D2 was swapped for a much crappier one.
  13. I know TOYS R US keeps track of people that return stuff to see if they are up something no good. I dont mind it but I hear if they see a patern, they can deny you a return/refund. I dont think its fair because I have a child and parents know darn well out there that when it comes time for christmas and birthdays, alot of stuff goes back and its not fair but hey, they have to draw the line somewhere.
  14. Yes, I took them to the toy department manager and believe it or not, he seemed very interested in it. I hope they can control this because I dont need to see this person getting away with it because it could affect the stores inventory and keep us from getting toys in time. a few months earlier, someone had hit the targets and walmarts in my area with gi joe 2-packs, taking the new figures out and replacing them with older, vintage joes.
  15. today, I walked into walmart in my town and I noticed a Princess Leia flashback figure and a POT2 green carded emporer's royal guard. I was like "cool, somone must have returned them." so, i decided to scan them and the Leia one read "$5.55-anakin skywalker". I was confused. I rang up the guard and he read $5.55-CLONE TROOPER". I was really confused now. I thought "perhaps they are using old SKU's" but I took a look at the back, where the UPC was and noticed someone had made copies of new UPC's and placed them on older figures, getting close to a full refund on them or perhaps, store credit. thoughts, anyone?
  16. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...5958575156&rd=1 good luck buying one!
  17. competition. Star Wars has a large enough fan base to warrant these lines (they buy anything with the SW logo on it. if yo havenm't noticed, most SW fans are a bit more obbsessive than Joe fans). but with G.I. Joe, Hasbro wants to ensure the success of Sigma Six, and maybe they feel the best way to do that is to put all their eggs in one basket and focus on that. they don't want kids or parents going to the store to buy their $15 figure for mom to say, hey buy these 2 little ones for $7. if that happened Hasbro would be competting against itself. it is obvious they want Sigma Six to be a huge success and they are focusing all of their energy on this. and if it is a success theyw ill go form there. you have a point BUT I am one of those STAR WARS fans and I dont necessarily buy "everything" with the STAR WARS logo on it. I collect the 3 3/4" and 12" star wars line: THATS IT. I was never fond of the unleashed line and the new "pee-wee league" figures. But I understand your debate. So, HASBRO is betting the fans with a new line. they are taking a big, big risk. I mean, they are targeting the "younger generation" with thier YU GI JOE line, excluding the entire 3 3/4" fan base. Ive always loved the 3 3/4" line. Ever since my first star wars figures, to battlestar galactica, to gi joe. its the perfect scale.
  18. I think there is reason to be pissed off. its like COCA COLA years back, canceling the COKE ingrediants for the NEW COKE. Old coke fans were enraged. CC saw thier sales "decline" so they were soon forced to put the old recipe back on the market, along side with the new one. Then, all of a sudden, CC pulled the new flavor off to satisfy the "die hard fans" of Coke. give it a few months, the 8" line will be canceled just like NEW COKE & CRYSTAL PEPSI. bottom line is, you cant expect to "change" something after years and years of buying one particular product and just because it has the name we love, doesnt mean we have to accept it.
  19. What I couldnt understand is "why" hasbro couldnt let the 3 3/4" line run along side the new 8" line. I mean, STAR WARS has a 3 3/4" line, a 12", a 2" and a 6" line!!!!!!! come on..........4 lines of toys running simultaneously?
  20. I love that quote. And just "who" is going to be buying the new Joes for thier kids? "DAD!" YUP!!! They guess right. And if "dad" doesnt like the new joe, then the kid isnt going to get it!
