Discussion in 'Transformers Sightings' started by Crossblades, Apr 18, 2003.
Went by Teterboro on the way to work... zilch-o.
I stopped by on my way home from work last night about 3 hours later and they were gone already. Thanks for posting. Still haven't found Sinnertwin but I have him ordered from TFSource to push an order over $150 for free shipping so I don't mind paying a bit of a markup.
I think the high scalper price on her is worry about the typical "end of line wave" not getting much distribution as the stores are mostly clogged with earlier waves. I imagine once the Bee movie generations start showing up in like a month or so there will be a restock of PotP at first then the end of the year will be all waves and waves of yellow. Once those thin out the Seige line will be in stores. The window for finding Novastar easily will likely be brief.
Reinforces my theory she'll be at Amazing Savings by the holidays, much like Slugslinger was a wave of one and can easily be found even now.
Aye, that will 100% happen. Its interesting watching the prices for something like this go from "inflated 400%" at first to "inflated 200%" when at mass retail a couple months later to "20% off on amazon" six months after that to "$6 at discounter" about a year after the first sighting to "inflated 200%" a year after the discounters sell out.
Last chance to purchase before these go to thrift shop. I am pricing the following Transformers lots with below retail prices and giving my fellow New Jerseyans first crack for local pickup. Nearly everything is brand new in original package unless otherwise noted below. PM me if you're interested.
Lot #1: $75
*Generations/Reveal the Shield/Hunt for the Decpticons*
Soundwave Cybertronian (Package has Shelf Wear)
Lot #2: $75
*Fall of Cybertron*
Lot #3: $50
Lot #4: $85
Optimus Prime (Loose)
Lot #5: $60
*Deluxe Dark of the Moon/Revenge of the Fallen*
Lot #6: $70
*Voyager Deluxe Dark of the Moon/Revenge of the Fallen*
Leadfoot (Package has Shelf Wear)
If anyone in the central jersey finds a Nova and picks me one up I'd be exceptionally happy and would pay you back. If I find any I'll grab one or two for members and sell them at cost as well.
walmart teterboro has 2 novastar's remaining
she is disappointing
HOW? I was just there this morning.
they miss shelved them. look at them middle of the aisle, not near the cindersaurs and the elitas. sort of squished in near the ben 10 stuff
Awesome. Got one. Good thing I was out for lunch.
Was in a pile of assorted figures right around that area. If there was a second it's in the somewhere.
Deptford Walmart has two remaining Novastar figures.
Novastar at Garfield Walmart just got one two left at the moment
Found the last Novastar at the Hamilton Market Place Walmart. Pretty bad I find Wave 4 before Wave 3
This + Amazon starting to get them in.
No one should have resorted to an inflated eBay auction.
I'm not the guy to sat I told you so... But I told you so.
Don't suppose anyone has seen cut throat and sinner twin this week? I saw them once but didn't have money on hand, then they were gone by the time I could go back.
Saw all 4 terrorcon limbs at Manahawkin Walmart. Picked up Novastar at Mays Landing Walmart.
Crapton of TLK Hot Rods at the Deptford Ollie’s
We used to have a network of Jersey people helping out and picking stuff up for other boardies.... At least I used to do it a long time ago.
If I spot them I'll grab 'em and shoot you a PM. This way you know you've got them waiting for you rather than hunting over and over.
Also if it helps anyone, Entertainment Earth has pre-orders up for the Terrorcon Wave for September.
I know, not as exciting as hunting, but available if anyone needs.
Would anyone local (Northern NJ) be interested in unicron and primus? I'm planning to get rid of mine but don't want to deal with shipping the big guys.
I was at Target Middletown this evening and found PotP wave 3 deluxes. There were two sets of the terrorcons and I finally got a Sinnertwin, already had the others. Looking forward to putting Aboninus together now. I guess this is the state of distribution now, Wal-Mart is getting wave 4 in while Target is first stocking wave 3.
