Received my ROTS wave(mint condition, thank you HTS). Now waiting for ANH. That was the best episode of CW...ever, last nite.

Cyclone

Yeah, that episode was nearly 100% action. Too many Jedi though. But it was interesting seeing them get their butz handed to them.

I was actually hoping to see them "lose" this battle considering they seem to win all the others. It was cool that they had Waxer and Boyle in their ARF armour.

Ran by TRU.

They have the TurboTank at $80. not bad. There are a bunch of AT-TE's @ $99. I'm still waiting for them to go on sale again. They also have a bunch of Crumb Gunships.

I picked up the Rishi Moon BP there today. They also had hte Gelagrub BP and Endor. Passed on those. Nothing new at Target/Walmart Germantown.

Saw a pallet with 6 or 7 boxes of AT-ST's tonight at a 24hr Walmart, funny thing is they are labeled as Clone Wars on the case. There was also one dewback on the shelf. No clue if these will be put out yet or if they still need to find a home.

Glen Burnie WalMart still had 2 dewback sets...they are mixed in with reg. BP's in SW section.

I spotted R2, Rotta Ahsoka, and a Droideka in the new packaging for the first time at TRU in G'Burg. Something tells me that I just missed Matchstick.

They have Gunships on top of the shelves in shipping boxes (labeled gunships), but none on the display shelves.

Those repacks are not in the initial CW wave with Matchstick & Padme. Try EntertainmentEarth.com for case breakdowns...I find them very helpful.

Anakin21
11-09-2009, 06:07 PM
Yes TRUs seem to be incredibly well-stocked in everything except the latest waves of basic figures.

For example, the Fairlakes TRU has vehicles, unpacked and still in boxes above the shelves and running the full length of both sides of the aisle. Incredibly impressive.

And while their pegs are filled w/ figures - its nearly entirely all early CW waves.

Burke WM had the AT-STs on the rear endcap by the SW section. Also had the Dewback exclusives. No new basics though.

Cyclone
11-12-2009, 09:36 PM
At Walmart I spotted the AT-ST on another aisle. I think that I might have also spotted the Dewback pack, but it was still in the shipping package listed as SW Creature and Figure.

Cyclone
11-13-2009, 12:31 AM
Yeah, it was Germantown. They didn't have the dewback set up, so hopefully they found a spot for them. That AT-ST's are on a separate aisle, but you can find them easy enough.

1st off...great meeting you, Glassman at Columbia Target. Should be a great w/e for the hunt: Severn SuperWalMart finally got some Legacy stock-2 cases of ROTS(probably all gone by now due to two other friends, but they said they put even more out later. Severn also restocked cloner two-packs(Echo, etc.) Dewbacks, BAD 2-packs & AT-ST's. Ellicott City had ROTJ wave & Grey Ugnaught. My friend found ANH wave(all gone) at north Glen Burnie Target.

but have gotten use to only runnin into scalpers so I
got out the habit of asking.
But I was just about to say the words when you asked me.

make it out to Gtown.

Went to Germantown Target and Walmart today. Nothing new at WM. Occ droids, Dewbacks and AT-STs are slow to move it appears. Nothing new otherwise.

Target at a lot of Wave 6 figures (Luminara, Argyus, Thire, and ATT Driver). They also had the new OBI and Dooku Speeder deluxe figures. Anakin on a bug appears to the Deluxe Pegwarmer. Even the crab droid moves better.

They have the Ambush at Abregado and Assault on Ryloth battlepacks at the Glen Burnie Target off 97.



I found them both at the Target in Germantown tonight. I almost missed them, but I remember someone said they saw it on an endcap. So I checked and sure enough it was on the end of a different aisle than the rest of the figures.

Odd thing was that these two packs are $24.99 while the other BPs are just $23.99. With the exception of Matchstick, I am pretty much all caught up until the end of the year.

FYI: 2 for $11.99 sale on figures at Toys R US this weekend. Friday 3 - midnight and Saturday [hours unknown]

Cyclone
11-20-2009, 01:29 PM
I ran by Toys R Us and found a bunch of figures that were not even on my radar. Even though the sale hadn't started yet, I had to get two of them.

I saw:

Clone Deviss
Ki-Adi Mundi (concept)
Padme ATOC
Chewy
Han with Storm Trooper Helmet
Death Star Luke
Jawa with Security Droid
Boba Fett
Two Cantina Aliens
R2D2 Jawa Attack
Scanner Crew Imperial

I grabbed Deviss and Mundi, but left behind plenty of gems.

I also Ran by K-Mart. They have Battle Packs and the 4 figure Clone Trooper pack on sale for $20. They even had some new figures and battle packs (Gelegru, Endor, Geonois). Vehicles there are $30 and the figures are $9. Pass on K-mart.

Great sale at TRU on basics! Thanks for the heads up.

Also, if you go to www.coupons.com (http://www.coupons.com) there's a $5 off any SW purchase of $20 or more. Good at any retail location. You can print two per computer.

Guys,
The Resurgance of the Jedi (http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HS93144&blinker=1) Battlepack is in stock at Entertainment Earth, for anyone that interested.
Free shipping if you get your order over 59 dollars. I ordered a couple of them, along with an old GI Joe fig for my son to do just that.
The lousy luck I've had lately finding new product in the stores made this a no-brainer for me.

Cyclone
11-21-2009, 05:20 PM
Well, the TRU was cleaned out of all the new figures that I posted yesterday. I stopped by Target at the Rio. They had a death star luke and the "detailed cockpit" Tie fighter. The Tie is pretty big.

Flacksguy
11-21-2009, 06:27 PM
My luck might be starting to change,

found the grey Ugnaught finally at a Target, and the ROTS wave at a Wal-mart.
I'm pretty much caught up with all the SW I want now until the ESB wave comes out, just looking for a couple of GI Joes.

This week:

Target: Geonosis 2 packs are $10
K-Mart: Buy One Figure, Get One Free

Thats right, K-Mart's $9 figures are now pretty much half-price making them the cheapest around for at least one week.

I'm not sure when these sales end, so be sure to check into them further.

Went by K-Mart at lunch. Figure are indeed on sale, but there wasn't one in stock that I didn't already have or need. Sucks having to pass up $5 figures.

Got my best deal of the year so far!

Found the Crimson Empire exclusive set at Rite Aid - rings up at $19.99 - after tax $20.99 - then used the $5 coupon I posted earlier, and another Rite Aid coupon of $3 off any $15 purchase (can find it online), for a grand total of $12.99!

Seems like a no brainer if you're a parent just trying to score your kids some SW toys - $13 for 6 figures!

I was up in NJ this morning, but still got to do a little scumming.

I hit Wall Mart looking for Matchstick. Found Ziro's Assasin, Active Wear Padme, and a Barraca. Not much else. Then stopped by a Kohls. 33% off sale, figures for $7.25. Scored a Ep III Commander Cody and picked up a Gungan warrior (no idea why). Kohls did have an impressive selection of Legacy/Legends. I even passed up on a Concept IG88. Finally tried the Target for a Matchstick, but they didn't have it.


This evening I tried the Kohls here in Germantown, no good figures. Just a few Clones and a pair of Medical Frigate Lukes. Not even on the 33% sale in Germantown.

Severn SuperWalMart had several cases CW Matchstick wave out today.

Cyclone
11-28-2009, 09:39 PM
Hhe, I still can't find Matchstick. I think I will rename him Waldo. I even found Ziro's Droid at Giant today while getting groceries.

I saw the TRU supplement for this weekend. Big Millinium falcon's on sale for $80. Wow! I really want to get one, but its just too big considering there is a AT-TE and a Y-Wing already going under the tree. So my wife managed to talk me out of it.

Flacksguy
11-28-2009, 11:54 PM
I'd return the Y-Wing, and get the Falcon. It's pretty much the best vehicle Hasbros ever done.

Picked up a couple Evo sets from TJ Maxx yesterday, not sure if I'll hang onto them or not.
Tonight was finally able to find a City Strike Snake Eyes, been hunting that one for awhile.

jedisquared
11-29-2009, 06:26 AM
I'll chime in IMO & agree with Flacks...BMF best uber vehicle ever-diorama-worthy, play-value worthy, in all ways! I still haven't bought the turbo tank, cause it just doesn't do anything for me. I like the new Target TIE once I got it home & opened it. I wish the ejector seat, well...ejected. Hasbro would charge us another $10 to add a spring mechanism. I like the CW Y-wing for sheer scale, but the Falcon is jam-packed with features...there's not a day goes by when I don't open the ramp door. My scanning crew tech now guards it.

jedisquared
11-29-2009, 02:25 PM
Severn SuperWalMart had A New Hope wave out this am...all there including Imp. scanning tech; also new Titaniums & all of new CW wave except Matchstick. Also had ROTJ & ROTS remnants.

Good score on the City Strike Snake Eyes Flacks. Was able to find the same one at the Springfield Kmart when they had the BOGO sale last week. Picked it up for my nephew. First and only time I've seen it.

Found a Matchstick at Target as well - oddly enough - was the only figure left from that wave. Also saw a Thire (again - the only figure left from the wave) at another Target, but passed as it was pretty beat up.

I keep passing on the Evo sets at TJMaxx, but think I may cave. With coupon, you get 2 for $19. Pretty good deal considering they're still $21.99 ea. at TRU.

Flacksguy
11-29-2009, 10:00 PM
Well, I thought I'd be able to use the coupon on those Evo sets at TJMaxx, but they refused it at the register. Something about them being a discount store to begin with. I bought them anyway, but I may take them back.
I don't really need them.

Yeah, that Snake Eyes is a pretty nice figure. I've never had any interest in GIJoes until these movie figures. At the new lower price, and with all the accessories, they're a great deal.

Cyclone
11-30-2009, 01:46 PM
Did a little Matchstick hunting at lunch.

Nothing at Walmart worth mentioning.

Target did have some new goodies.

First they had new battle packs. Rishi Moon, Geonosis Gunship bubble clones, and the Conflict on Kamino. My son has been asking about a "Little Boy Bobba Fett" for a long time, but I had to pass it up. I did see that Vehicles at Target at now at $16.99 which is very low.

They also had what looks like two cases of the new Build a Droid wave. Doubles of most, including the scanner crews which everyone seems to love for some reason.

About the BMF. The suggestion that I return the Y-Wing for the BMF has merit. But it still leads back to the "We do not have anywhere to put the beast".

On a sadder note, my CPA wife went over the finances and found that we are in the red. Clone Hunting activities are going to be sharply curtailed. Ugh. Looks like Matchstick might be my last hunt for a while. Well until Bly, Ayla, and Stone come out. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Looks like the ESB wave has started showing up around the country at WalMarts, so keep your eyes peeled.

BTW, I got the Resurgance of the Jedi BP in the mail yesterday from EE, and it is pretty awesome. Best farmboy Luke ever by far, and finally a R2 D2 in the R4 mold, plus that great Ben Kenobi.
Highly recommend picking up this BP when you see it.

Both Severn Super WalMart & Hanover WalMart at Arundel Mills had both Rishi Moon & Gelagrub BP's, Hanover Wally also had CW Capt. Argyus wave. Laurel WalMart had the SW dump/merchandiser w/Matchstick CW wave, ROTS Legacy & More, yes more Saga Legends(which we didn't need).

Cyclone
12-02-2009, 03:21 PM
Did an AM run.

Target had freshly restocked an Argyus wave.

Walmart, same wave. The AT-STs do not appear to be moving at all. They have had a aisle display since Before Black Friday and either they are keeping it very well stocked, or just one has moved this entire time.

I still haven't seen the Octodroid drop in price yet. Oh, someone has moved a few dewbacks over the Battle Packs area. Won't they be surprised when their BP which said $24 at the shelf rings up as $30.

Well, I did another early run today and boy did it pay off.

I went into Walmart not expecting much. I went past the AT-STs (still not moving) and past the Octurra Droids (Still at $35 and not moving), past the dewbacks (still $30 and not moving) back to the figures. I see a guy working the pegs near them. I get down there and guess what. He's changing the prices on all of the Star Wars pegs to $6.00. Whoa!

I look over the pegs, but they just don't have anything new. He then points me down the ailse and says that there are more figures down thatta way. Ok, I says getting somewhat excited. Boy did I hit the mother load.

They had a main aisle stand alone display with nothing but the new waves. All three figure waves and vehicles. The figures are great at $6, but the vehicles are still at $24.

Went over to Target, forgot to check the figure prices, but the vehicles over there are still $16.99. Figures are old stock.

Glen Burnie TRU had Darth Krayt comic wave back in stock; also saw this wave at 695/Rte. 40 Wally(they also had City Strike Snake Eyes if anyone needs). Seeing more BP's restocked except the two Target exclusives.

I pieced together most of the ESB wave by hitting a couple of WMs here in Winchester. Still need the R2-X2 droid, and the Concept Snowtrooper.
If anyone comes across either the droid or concept snowtrooper, or even another Bespin Guard and can grab them for me, I'd appreciate it.

Well, my mother asked that I buy my Son's Christmas presents that are coming from her. So last night I went shopping with her money. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

I figured that Target would have restocked their shelves, so I went there first. They still have vehicles there for $16.99. So I picked up a snail tank and a Magna Guard fighter. The figures were still lame and the BPs and Large Vehicles (TT, YWing, Imp Arc) were all gone.

They did however restock the Rancor UPB. Not kidding, they had about 8 - 10 of those things out taking up the whole shelves. I can see a manager saying, what? We are sold out of xxx, the just put any SW things you can find on those shelves, just don't let them be empty!

I was still under budget, so I ran over to WM. They had the ATT tank I was looking for, but at $25. I showed them the Target receipt hoping for a price match. Nope, they need an "ad" she tells me. I head down to the Target at Rio since they likely restocked and would have the vehicles on sale.

Get there, no new stock. But I was able to score an "ad" from a register by asking. Ran by TRU on the way, tons of "blue" card figures. Considering that I've seen their pegs emptied about three times since the red cards came out, I was surprised to see that. TRU doesn't price match.

Went back to Walmart and picked up that ATT tank and a Whorm Loansome to drive it. Still under budget.

Anakin21
12-11-2009, 04:18 PM
Noticed WM is burning through inventory pretty quickly as well. Pegs were completely full Monday, and now about 50% gone.

Scored the Vong comic pack at Burke WM the other day, first time I had seen it. Also picked up some of the CW figures I was holding off on, but now being priced at $6 seemed like a reasonable time to take the plunge.

None of the WMs I frequent appear to have gotten the ESB Legacy wave. I've pretty much lost hope on finding them (or most of the other Legacy waves) in the wild at this point.

I usually see every figure at retail at least once - but with this recent Legacy line, its probably less than 50% I've seen. Very frustrating.

Went by TRU today. Looks like their 2 for $10 is a hit. All of the Clone Wars and Legacy figures were gone with the exception of about 20 IG-86s. I still don't understand why there is no love for that figure.

I didn't know that the "Saga Legend" figures were not on sale. Those pegs were stuff. Ponds has been MIA for a few weeks now. I guess he's gone forever now.

I did spot a Matchstick on the pegs at Walmart. I almost bit on a A4-7 since they are just $6. But I held back. It was also hard to pass up on all those $6 Echos and Denals. You can never have enough clones you know.

At WM this am, amongst the 6 different sections of SW action figures - yes - there are at least six different/separate sections of SW figs throughout all the toy isles... There was one case of ESB figs. Scored the Concept Snowtrooper, the Snowspeeder Luke, and the AT-AT. Left the Green R2, ICMG, Snowtrooper, and others. Saw what had to be another collector, as he went right to ICMG and grabbed him, but I circled back around and he was back on the shelf - at $7.46 each, I've done the same - started with the intention of 6, to get the droid parts, ended up with 3, as $7.46 is just too steep, considering they were $6 last week. Hope they go on clearance next week.

Picked up the Oct Droid for $17.50 after reading the posts here. I then read further and found that the Turbo Tank was also on Sale. Ran right back out to WalMart again and found it for $50. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Neither of these were marked down on the shelves, you had to take them over to the price check scanner to verify. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

At least they ran up correctly. My son's birthday is Dec 29th. Lucky for him, he gets the bigger toys since they are always at a discount just after Christmas.

And to think, I was disappointed when I passed up the TT a few weeks ago for $80 at TRU. I was hoping to score a Gunship from TRU, but that will have to wait for a sale.

I did a super scum run today at lunch.

TRU - In the process of restocking. I'm still eyeballing the Gunship. Tried to talk Grandma into buying it. She's going to go gift card instead.

Target Rio - Figure 2 packs, about nine $35 Rancors, and a score of vehicles. Figures still at $7.89.

Target Germantown - Low inventory. Tons of $35 Rancors and figure 2packs. Almost no Vehicles, but the shelf still has them listed as $16.99. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif Almost out of Ryloth,Agregado battle packs. Custom Ties are still in stock.

WalMart Germantown - Still no indication at the TT or Oct Droids are on sale. There is still one TT on the shelf in the wrong aisle. Good stock of figures and deluxe figures.

The TRU there had 8 unopened cases of Legends about to go on the pegs - and 3 CW cases. Combined w/ the 20 pegs of unsold Legends still there, that TRU is going to be buried for months w/ that stuff. The employees didnt know where to put them all.

Otherwise, nothing new.

Ended up finding a concept Ki Adi when I was back visiting family in New England for Xmas - the TRU there had about 8 of them on the pegs along with the rest of the case assortment (imperial scanner, Padme, Deviss, etc.).

Oh - and Santa brought me the TRU McQuarrie sets, which was a nice surprise!

I just had to count the number of SW figs at my local WM - I have never seen this many - ever - not even in a movie year. They have consolidated the 6 different sections into 3. Approximately 700. Yes, 700. 33 rows with 9 figs per row on a shelf, 28 pegs of 7 per peg, and another 24 pegs of 8 per peg. All at $7.46 each. I'm sure the 10 cases of Legends are there. Some Legacy, but no more ESB wave - one case went in one day. Some Clone Wars, but mostly Legends. Maybe they will have a buy 1 get 4 free sale.

Wow, this place has really dried up the past few days. but I can see why. There is not much to talk about.

I went by Target at Rio, nothing new to report. Stopped by Walmart and Target in Germantown, nut'n Even TRU earlier this week was pretty much empty. Clone figures were wiped out with the exception of a dozen IG-86s (I still don't know why he is a peg warmer). BAD figures were down to just that new Pink Cantina Lady (This year's Yarna, BTW), and a ton of Legacy figures. It appears that everyone has had their fill of Legacy figures because they aren't moving that fast anymore.

I'm guessing that Clone Wars is competing with Star Wars now, leaving the latter warming the pegs.

No AT-ST clearance in Germantown. Target does now have the Rancor on the clearance aisle for $25. Its a great deal, but I am now out of room for something like that. Especially when there is likely to be more stuff to get over the next few years. I mean my boy is only 5 and his room is getting pretty stuffed with 100+ figures, 10 vehicles, TT, AT-TE, Octomom Droid, etc... A big Rancor would be too much. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Ran by WalMart today to see if I could find any AT-STs on sale only to find the entire aisle cleared out for repurposing. I had heard that WalMart was going to seriously reduce their "toy" department. I guess that means now. The Star Wars toys were relocated to a different aisle and only took up a small percentage of what they have before Christmas.

Dewbacks, AT-STs were gone. I was even pointed to a secret Clearance area back in the "Garden Center", but there was no StarWars to be found.

A quick run to Target found 3 Rancor's left and not much else. The Exclusive Tie Fighters have disappeared. Not sure if they had gone on sale or not.

Went over to Walmart. There is no hope of finding another $45 Y-Wing. Still smacking myself in the head for passing that one up a week ago. Walmart has downsized their SW shelf space. I headed over the new found "clearance aisle" in the Garden Center. I found the remaining AT-STs here, but no sale price, still $43.

I first hit the Germantown WM, AT-STs are still in the Garden Clearance aisle for $44. Ugh.

Mt. Airy Walmart. They have AT-STs, Dewbacks, Evolutions, and even a few Droid Factories in the clearance aisle, but no discounts. I think that they did have a pair of Oct Droids on sale.

Frederick WalMart #1 (Rt 85). Lots of AT-STs on the clearance aisle at $44, nothing else.

Frederick WalMart #2 (Liberty Rd) Found my Y-Wing!!! but only if I want to pay $65. Ugh, no clearance there. But they did have some of the new figures.

Went by TRU in rockville today since I was in the area and I saw that AT-TE are on clearance at $49. Not sure if this is beyond the rockville store since I didn't see this at the Gaithersburg TRU on Saturday. My son had a few $$ and a $3 coupon for TRU. We ended up leaving empty handed since we had most of the figures and the ones we didn't have didn't cut it.

We ran over to Target and He picked up a Obi Snow Speeder for $16 with some birthday money that was left over from last month. (the Cash arrive late in a mailed card). The only problem with that was, that all his Clone wars toys are spending the weekend in "Toy Jail". Turns out he threw a pretty bad tantrum in Pre-school on Friday, and until he apologizes to Mom and the teachers on Monday, his toys will remain in Toy Jail.

So when we arrived home from Target, he "gladly" put the new speeder into Toy jail, knowing that he can open it up tomorrow once he has made amends for his bad behavior last Friday.

I do kinda wished he'd had gone for the AT-AT driver at TRU, but oh well. We are holding out for Cmdr Bly or Stone, or even Ayla if we see her.

Did some pre-snowstorm hunting last night and had some pretty good luck:
Found 2 of the Target TIEs for 10 each. This ship looks MUCH better than the picture on the box leads you to believe. The red cockpit is a non issue and hardly noticable.
This is now my favorite of the three large wing TIEs that I have by a mile.
Also picked up a GI Joe Rhino for 25 bucks, and a Then and Now 2 pack for 6 and change.
Had been keeping an eye on that Rhino for awhile, waiting for it to drop in price.

We'll have to keep each other updated on snow totals this weekend. So far it's been snowing here for about 3 hours but it doesn't look like it's amounting to much yet.

Looks like I missed the Wave1 at TRU today. Thats what I get for going after work instead of during lunch. There were several Obi, Rex, and Codys with Nahdar stickers, but all the new figures were absent.

They did have the new deluxe vehicles including Desert Skiff, Cody Scooter, and 2x AT-RTs. I passed on the RT since I know that I get them later at Target and WM for $16 instead of the $20 at TRU.

02-08-2010, 12:21 AM
Stopped by TRU again to see if another case was opened. They were still closed from the Storm.

Nothing interesting at Target or WalMart. I rescanned the OctoDroid from WM. It rings up at $19 now. Still a bargain. The WM pegs are stuffed with Legacy and peg warmers. I can't image they'd restock even if they did have the new figures in the back.

Target has empty pegs and only one vehicle on the shelf. They are ripe for a restocking.

Before the snowstorm hit(3rd or 4th...lost count), I noticed some Targets had TIE fighter reduced to 19.98. Should have waited on this bad boy(I paid full price), but after I bought mine...it seemed to disappear(like the Wedge X-wing) for awhile).

Cyclone
02-09-2010, 09:24 AM
Agreed. I paid $28 for mine and now they are $20.

My wife asked me to pick up a toy for kid's birthday present, so I picked up one of the $20 Ties yesterday. Lucky kid, even gets a figure. They still have a bunch at the RIO target on an end cap. They haven't been relocated to the clearance aisle yet, but it can't be long.

They also have a single Red2 X-Wing. Still rings up at $50. I get tempted, but the more I look at it, the more I think that they could do a better job on it. So I pass.

If it gets marked down to $25, then I will bite.

Haven't been out hunting in awhile,
we got around 30 inches here over the weekend, and yesterday was the first day we were able to get to the main road. We are expecting another 15 + today, so I guess I'll be staying put for a few more days.
We lost power for a day Fri to Sat night, sure hope that doesn't happen again.

BTW, those TIEs have hit 10 in alot of places. Acave said he found a couple in Williamsburg, and then a few days later I found two here in Winchester.
Tremendous deal if you can find them for that price.

That Red2 X-Wing is a pretty good ship, I got one at full price back when they first came out and thought it was definately worth it.

Sorry for the power outage, Flacks. We got lucky in that regard, though the snow is literally 5-6 ft. high from drifts & pile-ups. This is my 7th week off from work because of my hern. discs.

I finally scored some Wave 1 figure goodness at the Target here in Germantown. I was able to get Ayla, Jek, and Bly. I passed on Hondo, even though he is really a great figure. I didn't see Stone.

The Paint app on Bly is terrible and I'm not going to open him until I see a few more just to make sure that I can't get a better one. Just two blatant spots of overspray on the helmet. Ayla looks good.

I already have Jek from the two pack, but this one has some different painting on the bandolier, so its variant enough for me to get him.

Also, I spotted the Turbo Tank on Clearance at K-Mart for $80 for what its worth. Sure its not the $50 deal the WM had just after Christmas, but it beats the $100 you find everywhere else.

Well, a good news and bad news post.

Good News. TRU figure prices have dropped to $6.99 a figure. This is supposed to be the new regular price. They are now cheaper than Target and Walmart. Not sure if they are also changing their price accordingly.

Bad News. The Target in Germantown has raised the price of their 3.75" Figure vehicles from $16.99 up to $24.99. Argh! It had been $17.99 since last summer and $16.99 since Thanksgiving. Oh well, I knew it couldn't last forever.

I had a good talk with a clerk at Target today. I saw this guy ordering around some floor clerks in the toy dept today, so I figured he was either a manager or associate mgr of some kind. I look over at him enough to get the "can I help you" response from him

I said sure, I'm looking for some of the new clone wars figures, my son really wants a commander stone. He's been out for over a month now, but I haven't found him here yet. I've been checking regularly. Well, he walks over to the aisle and scans the code.

He tells me that they don't have any more figures in the back, but that the whole display is scheduled to get reset in under two weeks. I asked about the price drops that I've seen at TRU and WM. He said that if that was going to happen, it would happen on a Friday, since that was the day that they change prices.

It was pretty cool, this guy knew what was going on and we happy to talk about it. It was a good experience.

Saw the AT-AT driver, Snow Speeder Luke, and a Stormtrooper there. I realized that I don't have a plain old stormtrooper. I have spacetrooper, sandtrooper, dark trooper, Han and Luke in Stormtrooper armor, but no plain Jane storm trooper.

Still, I'm being tight with the $ lately, so I passed. Still holding out for TWC stuff only, and even then just the good stuff like Clones and Jedi.

Found the comic packs today at the Toys R us in Winchester. They were sitting in the box on the floor. The box was open so I went through it. The only ones missing were the jedi comic packs. So I see an employee that also collects star wars figures. I told him that they got the new figures in and he said he already knew about it. He opened the box and got the two jedi comic packs and was going to buy them at the end of the day. So he walks fast over to one of the compartments above the transformers and pulls the two comic packs down and takes them to the back. Which I think is bull. He should not be able to hold or purchase items while at work. All I can say is he is lucky that I did not find them because they would have been mine.
I will attempt to get them later. The other packs looked good.

You should have politely informed the manager. I guarantee you would have had them handed to you.

Have been seeing alot the TPM Legacy wave at Targets around me, saw my first ever Darth Maul in the wild, which I quickly grabbed! Otherwise, keep missing the restocks and end up finding remnants.

Collecting this Legacy line has been the absolute worst experience - more times than not I end up grabbing CW figures just to make myself feel like I've accomplished something.

And actually finding 3 figures so that I can use the $5 off coupons, forget about it!

Ultimately, I think Im going to start transitioning to purchasing online - the hunt is losing its fun.

Picked up new CW Obi & Rex from "Trespass." this am at Severn SuperWalMart. There may have been more cases, since I saw like 9 pallets of Hasbro product.

Still not re-stock at Target.

But guess what, the Y-Wing has returned to Walmart, but for $65 again.

Cyclone, you still looking for cdmr. Stone...I'll keep an eye out.

Its ok, he will show up one day. I enjoy the hunt. I just can't believe its taking this long for the new waves to hit the pegs.

But it was kinda the same thing last year. I found the Kit Fisto wave early, and did not see them again until late April. Now those figures are everywhere.

Considering the lack of new clones shown at the Toy Fair, it looks like Stone will be one of the few figures I really hunt for this year. So I may as well enjoy the hunt while I can.

Besides, I'm taking the kids down to Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg this weekend and I hear there's a WalMart next door. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif .... my poor wife.

Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg




Fun place. We went for the first time this past Christmas.





Check your Ross stores guys. I found 2 AT-STs at mine for 20 bucks a piece.
Saw the new CW wave at Wal-Mart but passed.

FInally hit ross today, picked up a AT-ST and joker squad and couple gi joe items. They also had the octo droid, dewbacks, and a couple of the wm evolutions packs.

Flacksguy, any idea if your Ross had the gi joe 7packs?

Flacksguy
03-26-2010, 09:54 PM
Yes, they had three of them. All three were the same, the ones with the Cobras. After I told acave about them, he was ready to jump in his car and head up there and buy all three. So I'm guessing he got them.
That was all our Ross had, they barely have a toy section at all.
Would've liked to have found a Joker Squad.

Came up to Hagerstown today to do some shopping, and ducked into the Ross here by the mall.
Man, I thought the Winchester Ross had a small toy section.
Did find one lone AT-ST, that looked a little beat up. The girl took 20% off, so I picked it up.
Also grabbed two more Iron Mongers from the Target next door.

Went by Target (Rio), TRU, Target (G'town), & WM today. Nothing new. They did have a 2 for $10.99 special at TRU. The RIO target dropped prices from $7.89 to $6.99, so they are back to reasonable.

Saw the new jedi comic packs at target today, suppose someone else picked up the troop builders. Held off on the jedi for now, only really interested in 1 of the 4 figures.

Germantown Target had vehicles down to $17.99 again, but looks like that sale is over now.

WM has a Y-Wing back down to $45 now.

Got mine yesterday too.
Anyone seen the newest clone wars wave again lately

On a side note anyone collect the star wars size marvel and dc figures. If so have you seen the wave with Vision, Warpath, Jean and sunfire. Some how I missed them and now all i see is Luke Cage and Bucky.

Went out again today.

TRU - G'Burg. Prices back up, this time from $6.99 to $7.49. I spotted a Green Triangle AT-TE gunner clone. Since I've only seen him once before, I almost bought him, but then put him back. I already have one and I don't want to scalp it.

Target - Nothing new, and the vehicle sale is over.

Walmart - Pegs are stuffed with 2009 figures. Hopeless. I did spy a AT-ST on the bottom shelf. No price, so I took it over to the scanner. $15 ! Bingo! Ran to the checkout with my prize. Not bad for a $43 retail piece.

The $45 Y-Wings still call to me, but I resist.

Cyclone

I no longer resist. The Y-Wing is in my trunk.

OK guys,
looks like the EU wave has started showing up in Toys R Us stores out west, so you might want to start checking your local TRUs. This is most likely going to be a difficult wave to find for most people, so it would be wise for us to help each other out.
If you find any of these in stores, BUY 'EM!!!
Hopefully, we can help out everyone here in this thread who would like this wave. We did this a few years back when the first Commander Cody was tough to find, and also with Scorch and it worked out great. We hooked up everyone who wanted those figures by working together.
Maybe we can do that again this year.

BTW, yesterday I got two comic packs in the mail from HTS...the two Jedi ones. They were the only ones I wanted.

Sounds like a great plan Flacks - I'm looking for the whole wave and had pretty much resigned to having to resort to Ebay to get it.

If I see any of them I'll grab them in multiples.
