2 Wal-marts in my area have put both Legends & 2010 Vintage figs for $2.50 all crappy!!
and Kit Fisto ex vhx for $10 everything looks in bad shape, packaging wise.
Hopefully this means I will finally see 2011 figs at Wal-mart once all the old stuff is gone.
& of course I paid full price??

I am in the New England area now and discovered Newbury Comic Store.  Anyhow I found vintage variant Wedge, Gammorean Guard, Logray, and Bespin Han.  Unfortunately they are a steep $12.99/ea bought figure I could save gas and buy them now.  so if you are in the NE area that chain of comic stores are receiving figures.
Is it time to go home yet?

From what I've seen just in stores in general, places are doing 40% OFF RIGHT NOW on stuff.  They're doing everything they can to make a "black" week with all the early sales.

I noticed the article on Lucas retiring.  I find it sad to see that the fan boys/gals have upset him after the awesomeness he has given us.  I am not sure if it is the minority that are ticking him off but I hope he hears that others appreciate everything he has done and all that other jazz. 
Is it time to go home yet?

Hi,

I'm the Media Chair for the Celebration VI Collecting Track, and we have some news we'd like to get out to the community.  In fact, we have a bunch of announcements to make, so any help you could give us by posting it on your site would be appreciated.

Firstly, we would like to release pictures of more of the Star Tots we will be giving away at our presentations.  They are 2" tall, flat die cast enameled characters, based on the unproduced Star Tots toy line from 1979.  We will have 20 different characters, one at each of our presentations.  I have sent pics to your email.

We would also like to announce that we are seeking submissions for our display area:

"Here's your chance to share an unusual item from your collection at Celebration VI. The Collecting Track social area will feature a locked professional display case to highlight items that collectors do not often get to see. The focus is not about value per se, but oddities that exhibit the rich diversity of items that people can collect. Whether it's a toy exclusive to Spain, a cereal box from South Africa, or a hat made for cast and crew members, the goal is to feature items that will spark attendees to say, "Wow, I've never seen that before!" 

Because of space constraints, single items should not be much larger than 1-2 large shoe boxes. Small collections of items will be considered if they can fit into a similar size space, but groupings of items should be based on some unifying theme (e.g., food collectibles, watches, Australian items, etc.) and visual presentation will important.

To be considered, please contact Todd Chamberlain at todd@toychamber.com by August 10."


As well as announce the Social Area:

"The Star Wars Collecting Track is better than ever at Star Wars Celebration VI with the addition of the Collector's Social Area!

Organized by Marjorie and Arnie of the Star Wars Action News podcast, the Social Area gives Star Wars collectors the opportunity to network with other Star Wars collectors, learn more about the collecting hobby, and get autographs from authors of books on collecting. 

The Social Area will feature collectible roundtable discussions led by collecting experts from across the globe. You can meet other collectors from your area and join a collecting club! Listen to live podcasts about Star Wars collecting from Star Wars Action News, the 'Chive Cast, and This Week in Star Wars! Meet the owners of some of the most popular collecting websites, and more!

Plus, on Friday night in the Social Area, the underground hotel sales come to you with the Star Wars Collectible Swap Meet! Held in the Social Area, bring some of your Star Wars items to trade! Find the one figure needed to complete your collection, or that one-of-a-kind item you can't live without.

Stay tuned for a full schedule of events, and be sure to stop by the Collector's Social Area, room W304."


Thanks,
Tommy

TURTLE BEACH CORPORATION REVEALS STAR WARS-THEMED SANDTROOPER GAMING HEADSET FOR STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT

VIDEO GAME AT PAX PRIME

 

An Exclusive, Limited Edition Star Wars Battlefront Sandtrooper Headset

Will be Offered Only at Best Buy in the U.S., Featuring Individual Numbering

and Including an Extra Set of Swappable Star Wars Speaker Plates

 

Fans Can Pre-Order Both the Standard and Limited Edition
Star Wars Battlefront Sandtrooper Gaming Headsets Starting Today

San Diego, CA – August 27, 2015 – Turtle Beach Corporation (NASDAQ: HEAR), the leading-edge audio technology company and #1 in gaming audio, today announced the Star Wars™-themed Sandtrooper gaming headset for the eagerly anticipated Star Wars™ Battlefront™ video game. The standard version of Turtle Beach’s Sandtrooper gaming headset will be offered in the UK, Australia, and in select territories across Europe, while a limited edition Sandtrooper gaming headset will be offered only at Best Buy in the U.S. Each limited edition Sandtrooper headset will be individually numbered and include an extra set of swappable Star Wars speaker plates, truly making it something fans will want to add to their collection. Both the standard and limited edition Sandtrooper headsets are planned to be available this fall timed to Star Wars Battlefront’s launch, and PAX Prime attendees can get a first look at the new Star Wars-themed gaming headset this weekend at the Turtle Beach Booth (#442). Starting today, fans outside the U.S. can pre-order the standard Sandtrooper gaming headset at Turtle Beach, and fans in the U.S. can pre-order the limited edition version at Best Buy.

 

“With as many Star Wars fanatics as we have at Turtle Beach, it’s been hard to not let the droid out of the bag about this unique gaming headset,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “Our top-quality gaming headsets allow us to work with the biggest brands in the world, and we’re very happy to continue our ongoing collaboration with Lucasfilm and EA to support Star Wars Battlefront. We’re also excited about this great opportunity with our U.S. retail partner, Best Buy, to offer the Sandtrooper headset to fans looking to collect limited edition Star Wars gear and fully immerse themselves in the audio landscape that can only be served-up through the Star Wars universe.”

 

Themed after the squad of Stormtroopers donning the signature orange shoulder pauldron who are deployed to the sand-covered desert planet of Tatooine in search of Luke™, R2-D2™ and C-3PO™ in Star Wars™ Episode IV: A New Hope™, the Sandtrooper headset features an over-ear design for extended comfort, a removable high-sensitivity boom mic, and thundering 50mm speakers to deliver sound the way Star Wars is meant to be heard. It also includes one set of removable speaker plates that can be swapped out to show off different Star Wars characters and iconic franchise moments. Plus, only available as part of the limited edition Sandtrooper headset offered at Best Buy in the U.S., a second set of swappable Star Wars speaker plates is also included for free.

 

Turtle Beach’s Sandtrooper is a multiplatform gaming headset for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC and mobile/tablet devices. The standard version of the Sandtrooper headset will be available in the UK for a MSRP of £69.99 GBP, in Australia for a MSRP of $169.00 AUD, and for a MSRP of €99.99 EUR* in select countries across Europe. The limited edition Sandtrooper headset will be available only at Best Buy in the U.S. for a MSRP of $99.95 USD.

 

Star Wars Battlefront is planned to launch November 17, 2015 on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC. Additional information on the game can be found at www.StarWars.EA.com/StarWars/Battlefront. For more information on the latest Turtle Beach gaming headsets and accessories, visit www.turtlebeach.com, and be sure to follow Turtle Beach on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
