ToysRUs Vintage Falcon 50% Off!

By Mike — Sunday, December 9, 2012

For folks waiting for a further price drop on the TRU exclusive Vintage Collection Millennium Falcon, it's even cheaper...like half off! The Vintage BMF is now on sale for $125 (regularly $249.99)! Get yours today by clicking here! UPDATE: Sadly, it looks like it was a snafu by TRU and the Falcon is once again back up to regular price. The M.T.T. was also marked down to $90 for a short while and is now back to the "regular" sale price of $125.99. If it's any consolation, the Vintage BMF is on sale this week for $199.99 (at least in stores, for now.) It was almost too good to be true that the BMF would be on a regular sale for that amount, but sometimes you gotta just jump on it before it's gone and done.

By Mike — Friday, November 23, 2012

Good morning, Hunters! It's that one day of the year where shoppers are convinced they're getting a great deal, when in reality, the savings are of small consequence compared to the pain of long lines, no parking, and grumpy people in general.

So the BIG Vintage Millennium Falcon flew in last week in all its $250 glory and collectors are wondering about the other ToysRUs big holiday exclusive, the ROTJ Vintage Endor AT-AT with uniquely painted "poopie feet". The partial answer lies with our neighbors to the north.

GHR: TRU Big Book, K-Mart Exclusives On Sale

By Mike — Sunday, October 28, 2012

The annual ToysRUs Big Book is out today and it has a few Star Wars deals that you may want to look into. I guess there was a reason why my local TRU's had so many Republic Attack Shuttles upstocked on the top shelf.

GHR: TRU Tales Of The Vintage BMF, Big Boshuda Barges

By Mike — Friday, October 26, 2012

It's beginning to look a lot like…? Not yet, but it's almost here and ToysRUs is where the stuff is at the moment with their exclusive, expensive, and beautifully retro Kenner repackaged (B)ig (M)illennium (F)alcon. Now to that $250 conundrum.

GHR: Vintage BMF Online...It'll Cost Ya

By Mike — Tuesday, October 23, 2012

It's definitely the best Star Wars 3.75 inch vehicle Hasbro has ever produced and nicely repackaged Vintage style for ToysRUs and the holidays. But at $250, which is $100 more than when it was first released four years ago ($149.99), collectors will have to dig deeper in their pockets this time around. That's a lot of upcharge for packaging.
