I've always wanted to start one! Now I can say i've done it!

Columbia target had shelves cleared in anticipation for clone wars stuff. Had one AT out but was putting it back in the stockroom, when they were told not till saturday!

Looks like Woodstock Walmart's not getting in AT-TEs or Falcons. They have alot of figures and vehicles EVOS and voice changers. Also they got in one box of the new battle packs. (2 Imp. white Scouts on speeders and clone on Barc speeders) 2 each.

Had legacy wave in hand and again at Columbia Wally, denied at register.
They wouldnt even hold them. They all think the item is recalled. I had to explain the shelf date thing! Oh well, i was trying to avoid tonight, but i guess i'll go do it.

Who else is hunting at midnight?

$8 figures is forcing me to sit this out too - which is a HUGE bummer because these big planned releases are so few and far between. That being said, Im pretty confident I'll be able to get everything I want 4-6 months from now for alot less since it seems like there's going to be plenty of product.

Baileys X Rds Target had Order 66 Packs clearanced at $2.48 - but only had Master Sev and Luminara packs. They had 6 Rancors at $27.98 earlier in the week, but are all gone now. Not sure how low they ended getting clearanced, but Im sure someone must have gotten a great deal!

Happy hunting tonight/tomorrow! And don't trample anyone for these silly UGH stickered figures...probably the worst UGH promotion ever!

I'll be out just for fun, but I don't really think I would miss anything if I didn't go.
It's just that this doesn't happen often, so might as well enjoy it. Besides, I have a long way to go to catch up with you guys.

Heads up everyone.

Due to the nature of the Legacy repacks...I am seeing RAMPANT cases of *****holes tearning out the build-a-droid pieces & clone parts and leaving the figs. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

I heard north Glen Burnie K-mart jumped the street date by several hours on new SW goodies. Happy hunting!

WOW DJ - I have not seen this near me, as I have seen none of these figs on pegs - folks have been vigilant for the most part, in sticking to the street date. WM this AM had some battle packs out, I tried bringing them to the register but was denied - told I had to wait until tomorrow.

I did manage a Padme Evolutions from Target via DCPI at Customer Service, but really wanted a pilot set, which they said they didn't have, which perplexed me. It wasn't in the new case, and he said all of the cases he had were the same.

Again, I can't do MM, and with Swim Team Divisionals tomorrow from 5:45am - 2pm, I'm hoping that by 3pm, I'll get to check out what's left.

I'm going to assume, based on $8/fig and $4/gal gas, that maybe this stuff will stick around - plus there doesn't seem to be any "I must get this" exciting figs like the McQuarries from last year.

Glassman6
07-25-2008, 11:37 PM
I'm back from TRU-columbia and to my surprise, the figures rang up at 6.99. The register read "promo" So maybe it was just for tonight. I would have bought a few extra fiss if i had known.

Since i scored the CW figs earlier, i was just after the legacy wave1. Got em. Padme evolutions and 1st day issue capt rex.

I'll pick up legacy wave 2 hopefully soon.

Hit the glen burnie one. It was pretty busy. I got about 8 figures and all the ships (fLACON, AT-TE, and Spiderdroid0 but did get the v-19. I also got the Padme 3 pack and picked the rebel pilot set 2. I got the Holo GG as well luckly the run out.

Flacksguy
07-26-2008, 12:37 AM
No Midnight Madness at our TRU, but Wal-mart brought their stuff out at 12.
Picked up the Falcon, V-19 Torrent, Spider Droid, Hoth Recon BP, Legacy wave 1 & 2, plus a CW Grievous.


Also got a bunch of Indy stuff in the mail today from another scummer: Cargo Truck, Troop Car, German w/Motorcycle, German 2 pack, Belloq, and a couple of Indys.

DarthCaedus
07-26-2008, 12:54 AM
went to the columbia toysrus. picked up alot including all of legacy wave 1 and most of wave 2. the 2 big vehicles, 3 evolution packs, and the homing spider. the big surprise for me was that they had the dagger squadron b-wing.
anybody that go to this toysrus see the evolution rebel pilots series 1(w/ wes janson) or the v-19?

jedisquared
07-26-2008, 01:27 AM
Glen Burnie TRU was a joke...I put back the little bit I had when the free holo giveaway ran out. GB Super Wally had plenty of Falcon & AT-TE goodness up front in big merchandisers. Missed Series 1 Evo Rebel set, but managed to dig up 3 out of 8 Legacy wave 2; plus V-19 & Spider. Scalpers everywhere grabbing 1st day issues. Hah!

jedisquared
07-26-2008, 01:36 AM
...also just grabbed SDCC exclusive CW Senate Security from ShopSW.com.

07-26-2008, 07:53 AM
I think it was crap that Glen Burnie TRU ran out of the Holo Grevious so quickly. Poor planning on the part of TRU.
Just got back from N. Glen Burnie Wally & Target. The Wally didn't have any new stock out. Maybe they forgot? The Target only had Legacy Wave 1 Figures out, no clones, even thought they have all signs up. The did have plenty of evolutions and $20 vehicles. Got the V-19. They only had one Falcon and no AT-TE's out. Probably had 6 Commander Foxs left. Happy hunting.

ywlowe
07-26-2008, 08:03 AM
Also, HasbroToyShop.com has Wave 2 Legacy up for pre-order for right now. Rather not pay shipping charges personally for something that is floating around in stores right now.

Anakin21
07-26-2008, 11:24 AM
Kingstown MM was pretty packed - probably about 50 people there (incl. kids). Didnt grab anything since by the time I got in the first few had pretty much grabbed everything.

They only had 36 holo Grievous figures - so not enough for everyone. Didnt get anything but saw pretty much everything they had in stock.

TRU basics are ringing up @ $6.99 - which is definitely nice.

jedisquared
07-26-2008, 11:24 AM
Picked up Series 1 Evo pilots at Catonsville TRU...another interesting story. They have Holo Grievous but won't give out until tomorrow(Sun) at 10 am...something to do with their flyer & not being a MM store. They said to bring in your receipt. GB was a joke, like the aforementioned north Chhesapeake location(heard a rumour some were waiting till 12 noon). Laurel, Ellicott City & Catonsville Wallys had no new figures out. The place to go I heard is Annapolis TRU...they even have Holo giveaways left this am, also tons of Evo. Rebel Pilots Series 1.

JEDITOMKATT
07-26-2008, 11:42 AM
The hanover walmart also has lots of figures and ships. They was able to pick all the 1st day releases for the BAD and clone wars. I also picked up the V-19, the second wave of evols set and also got all 3 of the battlepacks(Hoth Speeder Patrol, Recon Patrol on Hoth, and Clone Wars: Speeder Bike Team Recon.

As of noon, the tons of all ships and all figures. I also picked up Commander Fox at target when they opend up at 8.

So now I only missing suba, tin, padme , auarren and clone trooper from wave 2

Had fun at the Columbia TRU last night. Sure wish I knew some of your faces. I was the guy with the camcorder handing out the checklists. I'm also the guy in the picture on the main page about to get my head sliced off by Vader.

You know you're welcome to come check us, the DCSWCC, out anytime. Our next meeting just happens to be next Saturday the 2nd at the library in Odenton. You'll get to see yourselves up on the big screen.

I'm guessing one of you is also the guy I bumped into at the Laurel Target this morning.

jedisquared
07-26-2008, 12:22 PM
...also heard from another collector that those big WalMart floor merchandisers w/figures may not have all 8 Legacy wave 2..can anyone confirm? Did anyone buy SL with clone footlocker...what's inside??? Also picked up a neat book at Wally for only $13 & change-the DK Clone Wars Visual Guide. Don't read too far into it if you get it...lots of spoilers on the movie. Good luck this w/e!

07-26-2008, 12:25 PM
JediTom, check(call 1st) Annapolis TRU...they had all the ones you're missing from wave 2.

Nope. My wife doesn't collect anything Star Wars related. I was there around 10:45 with my daughters.

Out of the two Wal-Marts I stopped at last night,
one of the shippers had no Padmes or Lancers, and I didn't look close enough , but I didn't see any Saesee Tiins either,
the other had them, but VERY few, I think only two Saesees, two Lancers and one Padme.


Stopped at the new Target and picked up Evo Padme and Evo Rebels #2.
Evo Rebels #1 seems to be the hard one to find.

Glassman6
07-26-2008, 02:27 PM
Funny, casue all I saw was Padme and tinn. No lancer or scuba...etc.
I went around to targets and wallmart's this am. I was at Laurel Target this morning with my daughter.
I saw a guy there with 2 kids, who may have been at Columbia TRU last night, now that i think of it. You were like 1st in the door last night?
I picked up the evo packs( pilot and clone pilot) at laurel target, and Tinn at Columbia target.
Laurel wally had nothing really. I didnt see any figures.
I also got the speeder packs at columbia wally.

Anakin21
07-26-2008, 03:37 PM
Was told the same thing about non MM TRU's not having Grievous until tommorrow. But if you bring a receipt from today they'll give you one.

I didnt realize the UGH promo carried into the LC series too. Saw the UGH Gree, Kashyk Trooper, Battle Damage Vader, Ak-Rev, Gargan and Evo Trooper at TRU and Target. Tough to pass on those - but I did.

I did cave though, and picked up Padme, Quarren and Calamari basics. Those were just too good to pass up on!

DarthCaedus
07-26-2008, 04:06 PM
Evo Rebels #1 seems to be the hard one to find.


try the columbia target. at about noon today they had about 30 evolution sets and they were all fett legacy and rebels series 1.

DarthCaedus
07-26-2008, 04:09 PM
imo the laurel and columbia walmarts r usually horrible for finding anything star wars. i did pick up legacy wave 2 padme in columbia today tho.

i too heard that tru will have holo tomorrow
anybody get pics with the sandy at GB he looked cool

i have only been seeing wave 2 at tru
did get a fox at gb target they had 5 left of him and about 8 figures total in aisle

jedisquared
07-26-2008, 06:21 PM
...I won't argue that Glen Burnie retailers seemed mismanaged this weekend. Anyone still searching for Rebel Evo. #1...I think TRU(not GB) is your best bet.

gizmo91
07-26-2008, 06:49 PM
The Severn Super WM had the scuba and tinn as of two hours ago. Didn't see any padmes though. They were on one of the end caps and not in the main seciton.

vadarthdad
07-26-2008, 09:39 PM
Flacks - I can't find Rebel Pilots Series 2, but I found about 6 Series 1 - all at Target by me....

Flacksguy
07-27-2008, 01:38 PM
Yeah, acave told me he found some series 1 down by him, so I guess different stores are getting different case assortments.
Would've been nice to have all the new ones come in one case, but oh well. After all the money I've spent the last couple of days, I'm not in a hurry to get it.

jedisquared
07-27-2008, 01:44 PM
North Glen Burnie WalMart still didn't have piece one of 7/26 SW out. North Target had vehicles, some Legacy & CW wave 1(some 1st day issue left, mostly battle droids); but no Cmdr. Fox left; TRU got 2 boxes of Holo Grievous...only problem is they have no restock on figures-just some R2 & Anakins, some mid-size vehicles...but they DID have Dagger Squadron B-wing out(I saw 3).

gizmo91
07-27-2008, 02:27 PM
South GB Target has a large section of NOTHING --- not sure if it had figures yesterday, but here are no tags on the pegs and a sign that says 'we are creating' so I doubt they even put stuff out. All CW stuff is on end caps with tons of CDR Fox if anyone is looking for them.

Super WM restocked over night, more of the Probe Droid & Speederbike BPs and full pegs of figures, including the end racks.

JEDITOMKATT
07-27-2008, 08:51 PM
I was in Abingdon Maryland at picked up all of wave 2 (legacy) for only 5 dollars each at Walmart off 24. I also got the new B-wing at the Abington Md Toys r us.

El_Kamino
07-28-2008, 09:16 AM
I was able to pick-up 1st wave of Clone Wars, first 2 waves of Legacy BD, first 4 Legacy GH figures and first 11 Legacy SL figures plus the First Day Issues of Clone Wars, Legacy BD and Legacy GH this weekend at the Staunton Wal-Mart. They opened up the big center-aisle displays right at midnight. They had the aisle already setup at 10:00 PM. but you couldn't checkout until midnight.

The Waynesboro Wal-Mart hasn't put out anything but the Falcon, AT-TE and some sabers. They created a new section for Star Wars but, as of this morning, nothing has been hung yet. I was quite surprised!

I was little disappointed in Target. They had plenty of the exclusive figures but everything else was pretty slim. And the figures are a dollar more than anywhere else!!!

Flacksguy

Hey, welcome to the boards El Kamino!
Nice to see another collector out here in the Valley, along with myself and acave.

I grabbed the Lancer droid, Scubba and Heavy gunner clones between Columbia target and Germantown target this morning.
After finding all the waves in full for the past year almost, its odd to be gettin this wave piece by piece.

I didn't get to stores until 3pm on Saturday, and hit the following in the span of about 2 hours:
2 WM
3 Target (Hit a 4th on Sunday).
1 TRU
What I noticed first, and fairly consistent, was that all 3 Targets were very poor - they had no centralized display. Some had anywhere between 1-3 endcaps, but the number of figures was very limited. I also noticed that almost all of the 1st day of issue versions were gone, which is fine by me, as I think that is one of the lamest promotions I've seen... WM was much better, but hit-or-miss - one had no battlepacks and no evolution sets at 3pm on Saturday, however, they were there on Friday AM, when I tried to purchase them - only to have the person behind the register say they shouldn't be out yet - my guess is they took them somewhere else in the store and now they are lost, as I doubt all of them sold-out. They were in full supply at the 2nd WM. TRU had the best figure assortment, and they let me come back on Sunday and pick-up my free holo-Grevious (worthless fig IMO, but I'll take it for free) at noon on Sunday they still had their full 2 cases left, as I counted 24 on the pegs and I took the first one. At the two WM's, I only counted 1 BFM missing, and I know that was a collector who works there. I saw no missing BFM's at Target or TRU, and I saw no AT-TE's gone anywhere. I'm guessing the $150/$100 price tags are going to keep most folks away.

jedisquared
07-28-2008, 05:03 PM
I've got that beat...the Laurel & north Glen Burnie Wallys haven't put out ANY new CW or Legacy figures.

Those walmarts lost alot of sales.



I was thinking the same thing. I was in laurel saturday, and could not believe that they had NO figures at all! They didnt have anything the first day of ROTS either.
It really sucks that the 2 closest walmart to me are Columbia and Laurel and they are notorious for not having anything!

That being said, I finished the legacy wave2 yesteray at Gaithersburg TRU. Got the quarren and mon cal! Thats it till october right when wave 3 hits?

Columbia Wally was in better stock shape than my locals...and they even had Capt. Rexes. Columbia TRU actually had 10-12 Holo Grievouses hanging on the pegs. I've been p/u extra clonetroopers for the AT-TE my son commandeered. I actually like the dirty deco CW versions.

DCSWCC meeting this Saturday, 1-4:30pm at the Odenton Library.

For all you 'locals' that haven't made it to a meeting, you might want to at least stop by --- I'm sure lots of good collecting talk -- plus one of our members is returning from Celebration Japan so we'll see what he has to say.

If you've been on the fence, stop on by!

The Waynesboro WM still hadn't put out any figures as of yesterday. I talked to one of the workers and he said the stored was prepared but didn't receive any. They were quite upset.

I hit the Dayton WM yesterday (near Harrisonburg) and there was nothing CW in the place. No displays, no figures on the pegs, not even a new shelf setup for the figures. I don't know what happened there.

I have to say, from everything I've seen and heard from Roanoke to Harrisonburg and even parts of Richmond, it sounds like the Staunton WM was above and beyond.

Glassman6
07-31-2008, 10:49 AM
I forgot to mention, That i got holo grevious form TRU Columbia.
They were supposed to have them at MidnightMadness, but i didnt get one. I took my receipt back and they gave me one.

Picked up another Scuba and Heavy gunner clone from Columbia Target this morning. They had Wii Fits if anyone is looking for one.

Walmart in Mount Airy has rolled out virgin pallets of all the Clone Wars stuff into the aisles: BMF, AT-TE, clone helmet/blasters/etc., smaller vehicles, and tons of 1st day 3 3/4" saga and cw figures. Too bad I don't collect any of those anymore.

Seems since I went on vacation that the four sets have been released. If anyone comes across them and can help me out please grab them - can pick up at your convenience. I will post / update here if I am lucky enough to find them.

The sets I am looking for are:

[Wal-Mart] Jedi Starfighter
[Wal-Mart] Darth Vader Tie Fighter
[Target] Mos Eisley w/ Dewback
[Target] Geonsis Battle w/ Nexu

Thanks.

Hit the TRU in Charlottesville tonight and picked up the exclusive B-Wing. Also got the TAC Battle on Mygeeto battle pack. That's the first one I've seen on the shelf. I figured I had missed it. I got one free Holo Grievous and she allowed me to purchase 2 others (one for my son and one to open for my loose collection). They had plenty left so I guess they haven't given away or sold very many. They weren't out where you could see them. I had to ask about them and they kept them behind the service desk.

Glen B. TRU only got 1 case of B-wings that were put out 7/26. They didn't last long. Has anyone purchased one & opened. I understand there's a decal sheet with IMperial fighter kills you can add to the vehicle ala WWII. Very cool. GB TRU had Falcon, didn't see AT-TE or new figures. Legacy wave 2 is gonna be hard for people to find who didn't nail them 7/26.

Just got back from Laurel WM. They've got a display 3-pallets-long in the main aisle, several figures on the pegs towards the back of the action figure aisle and the Droid Builder 2-packs on the back endcap. There were many FDOI figures in the mix.

jedisquared
08-03-2008, 03:39 PM
...that's cause they finally got the stock out of the backroom & onto the sales floor(better late than never). North GB WalMart has some new SW items I've never seen: SW stackable keychains: they had Boba Fett, Stormtrooper & Lord Vader. Kinda cute.

Must be a blind person at the door -- hard to smuggle that out of the store under your jacket. But I did see a couple 'steal' several grocery items this past week. They had a ton of groceries in their cart along with a child carrier ---- but they only put a few items on the belt to get rung up and pushed the cart to the 'pickup' area and then the mom grabbed a few empty bags and put the stuff they didn't ring up in them --- the guy distracted the cashier by giving her something and saying 'we don't want to buy this'. Then they walked to the door - the WM greeter looked at the receipt, marked it and let them go.

I didn't say anything, since most of what they were stealing was formula and food for the baby ---- not my job to be WM security!

Has anyone else opened any of the new Legacy figures? I started opening my second set for my loose collection and I'm a little disappointed in the figure quality. The No. 2 Luke has legs that are bowed out to the sides and you can hardly get him to stay on the stand. The No. 3 Chewbacca has about 3 joints in the torso and they are all really loose. He just wobbles back and forth from the waist up. On the other hand, the detail on them are quite good. I don't know, maybe I'm being to picky.

Waynesboro WM has some blue eyed Trooper cards out but no wave 3 figures. Waynesboro Target is pretty slim on everything.

When does the next wave of the Clone Wars figures come out? Are they timed to be released with the start of the series on the Cartoon Network?

I was shocked to see Fox on Clearance at 50% off at my local Target today. Then again, it's only been about 35 days since the day these were released.... For 6.49, I grabbed 2. There was only 1 left. My 2 other Targets had none left - don't know if they hit clearance or if they sold out.

Not one Gamestop in our area is able to confirm they will have the figure. I have called about 6 stores, and found only one who knew what I was talking about.

I was at the TRU in Charlottesville this evening. They had one each of the 2 new exclusive GH Cinema Scenes but they were both damaged. I guess that's why they were still sitting there. Everything I have found at that TRU lately has been damaged. No "Disturbance" packs.

I think that Stormtrooper commander is only a Canadian offer.

I stopped by Target last night and saw half of the newest wave: the Coruscant Trooper, Saluecami Trooper and that Battlefront figure but passed on all of them.
At 7.99 a piece, I don't need anymore clones. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
I think my army building days might be over.

I did pick up the Force Unleashed comic book from Boarders though. It was very good, better than I thought it would be.
Very much looking forward to the game.

I just stopped by a local GC on the way home. The guy knew nothing about a promotion, but decided to check the back and came out with one Stormtrooper Commander. He said it was the only one they had received. Didn't know if/when they might be getting more before next week. He spent a few minutes searching the computer and found the code - said it was only $.01 (yes, 1 cent) if I pre-ordered FU and I could take him with me - pre-ordered FU for $5.01 and now I have my Stormtrooper Commander!

All 4 GameStops in Charlottesville got 24 of the Stormtrooper Commanders today. There was no charge for the figure. It was free with the reservation. I asked the girl how I could get 2 for my carded and loose collection. She said reserve 2 copies and then don't get the second one when you come to pick them up. So, basically, you get the figure for $5. On the second reserve, she ordered a PSP copy (I have a Wii) so they would have another one to sell in the store. She said they are usually shorted on PSP copies.

Picked up the last Disturbance At Lars Homestead at TRU in Catonsville. They also had Battle of Kashyykk & Rancor GH BP's. Also spotted Temple of Akator playset for IJ line. I prebooked the FU game at Laurel Gamestop on Rte. 198 & took home a stormie cdmr. today(ask for Jessie).

Got my Stormtrooper Commander for pre-ordering TFU at Game Stop. Kind of an ugly figure though.

After talking with acave about the Wal-Mart TFU 3-packs, I deceided to go check them out, and wow, the Shadow Stormies are really cool looking!
So I picked up that set and left the Vader with the candy stripers.
Not a bad deal for 15 bucks, two great looking Stormies and the best Palpatine ever made.

Staunton WM had the 3-packs this morning. They are already on the clearance isle with a red sticker but are still priced 14.88. They also put out 3 figure keychains and 3 "stack ems" keychains, what ever they are. I haven't seen these before. Nothing else new.

09-15-2008, 03:27 PM
So no luck with the GameStop figure. Fair Oaks, Alexandria, and Fairfax stores said they weren't running the promo. And Burke said only during MM, not just for preorder.

So if anyone happens to score an extra, I'd be happy (more like thrilled) to take it off your hands!

vadarthdad
09-15-2008, 05:17 PM
The ones by me are either MM only, or are not open for MM and are not getting any. Those that were MM knew the rules very well - said it was described in a memo they got with the figs - no early give-aways, and it sounded like there was a process described for any left-overs after MM - the way it was desribed to me - don't count on any if you don't show for MM, but they may have been trying to drive sales.

Not a bad recon trip!

Also, the no. 12 Clone Trooper I found is red. Are they doing this one in 3 different colors like the SLs last year? The picture on the card is blue.
