A galaxy far, far away....
Got the revised price list for next year... not good reading, pretty much everything is up 15% :livid:
Oh great, this hobby is just becoming impossible. Nobody can justify paying these silly prices.
Hey Darth Paul, is everything gonna be available over here?

Well apart from store exclusives yes indys can ORDER everything.... but that doesnt mean we will get it all thou.. as with previous years the wholesaler paul is talking about offers it all but doesnt bring it all in as they dont get enough orders to make MOQ sometimes. but yes ALL Early 2011 product will/ should in theory hit the UK as its a movie launch and product rebrand... but come the end of the year we may be back to the same old problems.

So, what have you been finding lately?
I have been finding that it is no longer necessary to start another thread on the new forums, because the old ones now continue indefinitely..... :p

Don't know if it's in-store, but TRU have a Buy 2 get 3rd free offer running online at the moment. Might be worth getting your 4 figures through this, as this weekend is the last in order to qualify for the free Proto Boba Fett!
Cheers for info, I got the vintage Y-Wing and 2 x Vintage Tie Fighters using offer.

My quarter scale ANH Han arrived today. Amazing figure. I had a bad experience with the Indy figure in this range but the SW ones are fantastic. Some good prices out there if you shop around on them. I am aiming for the Hoth Han next

The missus got me Hasbro Force FX Anakin Lightsaber for Christmas... it arrived the other day, I had to open it up and test it, to make sure it was working & wasn't cracked! I had a hard time convincing her that this needed to be done, but she eventually caved in after I told her she had tried on her new coat for Christmas not only in the shop but also two or three times when we got back from the shops... women!
:congratulatory: High Five Paul!! :encouragement:

Does anyone know if the Toys R Us 3 for 2 offer applies to Lego?

Smyths have the Lego Millenium Falcon for £109.99 down from £132.99 - wish I could get my hands on the 10179 Falcon, I have held off buying the 7965 Falcon in the hope of getting my hands on one of those bad boys.

Also noticed on Order 66's facebook they have an offer - Order £66's worth and the delivery is free
Lego Falcon a lot cheaper here...

haha, nice! You could have argued it was also product testing for a new line!!!

I did think about stocking these but the difference between my price and the price play.com were selling them at didn't make it seem worthwhile

Just to follow up on the post I made a few weeks ago, I've still had no luck in hearing about my orders from the 3 Darths through phone or e-mai. Did someone mention they had him on Facebook? Would it be possible to have a link? Starting to have a bad feeling that i'm not going to get these items from him.
I am in the same boat. I ordered two figures from 3 Darths back in June. They haven't replied to my messages although I did manage to speak to someone on the phone two (?)weeks ago. A delivery from Hasbro is (supposedly) due.

In short, 3 Darths - get your communications sorted out or you will lose customers!

Forbidden Planet in London yesterday had a new wave including Bom Vimdin, red ARC Commander and slave Leia for £10.99 each.


Hopefully these will be at TRU soon, along with the Tie Pilot

Yeah, it is a real worry just for the fact that i'm waiting on 5 figures - more than £50 worth of items! I understand issues that he seems to have had with his shop and seemingly with shipping from suppliers but its just really not professional.

For those that pre-ordered Landspeeders/Tauntauns they will be with me Thursday or Friday next week... all being well! So hopefully get them shipped off the following day :)
Hell yeah!
Big Star wars Whammy this week then, just picked up my Vintage Y Wing, Tie and Snowspeeder at TRU with the 3 for 2. Chamone, It's feelin' like Christmas!

Does anyone know if the Boba Fett offer is valid on vintage collection bought from Amazon uk?
Only TRU I'm afraid!

Thanks
