    Cool!

    But when is the re-make of the `78 Death Star battle station playset comming out?

    *Sigh*

    I miss that toy...the trash compactor, the cool elevator, the gun, the trap door, retracting bridge...

    *Sigh*

    Would this be the 4th Jango and 37th Qui-Gon? ;P (And, where's my Coleman Trebor figure??)

    I miss playsets too... big, epic, $200 ones like the Death Star or G.I.Joe aircraft-carrier. The new Geonosis Arena set looks like crap, but it's at least a small step in the right direction.

    Look Here

    Its a order/pre-order page for the US Wal-Mart. No they won't ship to Canada, I checked, but it does give the prices and release dates.

    There is a playset there as you can see, and most importantly for me, my interactive Artoo with a Aug 15th availability date!!

    I know I'll be doing a run across the border that day.

    Does that mean that the June 7 release of this wave is out the window, Mike?

    HI DB, It think that June 7 is the date that
    shipments are expected in Canada. My guess would be that the stores should be receiving
    and putting them out by Wednesday of next week. The Jango Fett figure is very nice and
    is my favorite Jango figure so far. I got mine in LA. remember that patience is a virtue ( I do not have any !!!) and we will get all these basic figures in time. Unless you collect the different carded picture like the our Forum boss does, Then you will have to make a trip
    across the pond as well...

    Here is a incomplete list of what is coming
    out this year and most items will be released in Canada:



    12" Ultimate Jango Fett July 2002 $79.95

    12" electronic Jango Fett Aug 2002 49.95

    12" Zam Wessel Aug 2002 $39.95

    Geonasian playset Aug 2002 $79.95

    X Wing fighter Sept 2002 $49.95

    Republic Gunship Sept 2002 $79.95

    18" R2D2 Sept 2002 $159.95

    12" Super Battle Droid

    12" Luke w TaunTaun Oct 2002 Toys R Us EX?

    12" Max Rebo & Doda Bodo Nov 2002 Wal Mart EX? $79.95

    Hey Woofer when is the date and the price on that interactive R2? You may not have to make a separate trip if it's out by the time of the camping trip. Hopefully, we can just do a toy run and camping then to look innocent ;) at the border.

    So Mike, you are saying when its available in Canada it might be cheaper?

    Hrm. Guess I'll have to buy two!!

    Sanbas, unfortunately it is expected out about 2 weeks after the Darien Lake thing. Just have to cross that border twice in August is all.

    I think if we wait John we will save the exchange and the shipping but I never claimed to be a smart guy. I have a connection at Toys R Us who has confirmed that R2's sku # is on their system.
    .......but.......
    Since you are driving over anyways you do not have to worry about the shipping so I
    think that the prices should be about the
    same. In that case maybe you can help a fellow old guy out :)

    Ok, thanks Mike. As for AOTC stuff, I'm ripping them open so I could care less for US/Canada versions, variants and cardback stuff. I've learned my lesson with all the Darth Maul stuff I used to have and some that I still have which I'll be bringing to the swap meet.

    I'm only really waiting for the Bespin Luke and Vader. That's about it. Geez, would it kill Hasbro to make more new characters?

    I would love see at least a "maybe" from Hasbro concerning characters like Coleman Trebor, Butlar Swan and other lesser Jedi's instead of zillions of Jango's.

    I'm still waiting for someone to post if there is anything new at the Silver Snail today. After all, it's Wednesday which means new shipment day.

    For the INTENSELY impatient, everything's at the Snail. And by everything, I mean:

    New Jango
    New Mace
    Palpatine
    Massiff with Geonosian
    Deluxe Ani with Geonosian
    Djas Puhr
    Qui-Gon
    Endor Rebel Soldier
    Bespin Luke
    Bespin Vader

    oh and probably something else I've forgotten entirely. They're $12.99. Go nuts!

    Probably selling out of most of them as we speak! The snail is good but everything goes so quick!
    I will have to wait for them to hit the shelves and hope for the best.

    Thanks CrazyMike. I am a big collector so I appreciate the update. I have been waiting to hear about some of the figs you mentioned.

    Just FYI, a friend of mine who works at Toys'R'Us was telling me today about an exclusive 12 inch Mace Windu that is coming soon.
    I don't have more details then that, but he said it looked really cool...

    Yeah I heard about them. I stopped collecting the 12" figs. The only one I still have is my Obi-Wan.

    CrazyMike-you interested in CCG cards for your collection? I have a set of Black Border Premieres that I would love to swap!
