Brian's Toys Box Sept. 16, 2016

Brian's Toy Box

 

This week’s featured item is the Die Cast Imperial Cruiser. This isn’t just your average Die Cast Imperial Cruiser; this particular piece has the special offers that make this Cruiser extremely unique. Given an overall grade of 75 by DCA (Die-Cast Authority), this cruiser shows minor signs of wear.

These 3 special offers are flashy and will help this Cruiser pop in your collection!

 

 

 

Special offers were put on various vintage Kenner items to appeal to department stores from 1978-82. All of the special offers were very limited in release. The special offer states “Complete with Outpost Command Battle Scene”. The fact that this Imperial Cruiser is still sealed with a special offer is astounding. How could you not open up this beauty and cruise it through the battle scene?

 
 

A quick search on eBay shows very few of these special offer vintage items on the market, making this a hot ticket item!

 

Next week I'll show you know about our twelve inch Chewbacca action figure in a rare Empire Strikes Back box.

New Specials Categories

Posted on

We know how much customers enjoy specials and discounts. And one way to deliver those specials is through our email newsletter.  But sometimes, we know you can't wait to see the latest product discounts.  That is why we are trying a new feature that will hopefully make it easier for customers to browse all our specials at any given time. 

We have two brand new categories that will list products currently set at a discount price.  One for Vintage Star Wars, one for Modern Star Wars. You can find these links by hovering over the Vintage and Modern category tabs, and you will notice that the links are at the bottom of the menu.

Keep in mind that these categories will list products that are marked down from their original price.  Most mark downs are temporary, so be sure to purchase the products before the sale expires!

To make finding deals easier, we have added the long-awaited ability to sort products by either name OR price!  Give it a try.

The Force Awakens Pre-Orders

Posted on

Hi Everyone!

What a time to be alive.  I remember it was only a few years ago that we were at Celebration 6 in Orlando, and the energy of the convention had a type of emptiness to it.  As Star Wars fans, the only couple things we had to look forward to was the then-announced Star Wars Detours and a sneak peak at the prequels converted to 3D.  Only a short-time after the convention, we were shocked to find out that Disney acquired Lucasfilm and a new episode was on the horizon!

Fast forward to today, we stand only a few months away from Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. The first wave of figures have already hit store shelves this past September 4th.  And we know you are anxiously awaiting yours to arrive at the doorstep.  We just want to let you know that Hasbro is working on fulfilling our order we've placed with them a while ago.  They currently have not given us an ETA, but their schedule says the items are due to arrive this month (for items with October estimated availability).  The pre-order response has been amazing, and once they arrive, it will take us a few days to process and ship out.  We appreciate your patience, and we are working with Hasbro to get them here faster.

For the time being, make sure to check out and/or subscribe to our weekly newsletter.  Here is this week's newsletter for a small sample.  We always showcase new pre-orders and the latest restocks of popular items, and occassionally a new coupon code.

Thanks,

Westley
