Continue posting your recent finds here.




This week I've picked up my 4th, 5th & 6th Magnaguards.
I'm done with those, and am now caught up with everything I have been looking for at the moment.

Not just in this area but for the amount of people that said they didn't want to collect the foils they are dissapearing super quick

about time targets start getting the foiled cards. Have seen multiple cases of wave 2 vintage now that have no foil cards in them either. I still need 1 more MOC card cody to put away for autographing eventually

Picked up Mando. warriors & ARC trooper BP's from Ellicott City Target(only had 1 of ea.). They also had Vintage wave 2 out: foils I left-clonetrooper(ep. 2), Anakin, sandtrooper & Bespin Luke.

Saw wave 2 of the vintage set at Target today, no foils.

Picked up the Nikto Guard at TRU out in winchester, pricey little bugger.

GB wally world had 1 ki-adi-mundi and 1 clone pilot Goji no flamethrower clone thou



bunch of IM figures for 5 too

Cyclone
10-06-2010, 09:23 AM
Does Goji's helmet come off (like Matchstick) or it is fixed like Odd Ball?

I ended up getting the Fett UBP from TRU last night.

$89 on Sale, plus a free $11 Nitko Figure, and a $10 off coupon. So I saved about $40 on the transaction. I can live with that. Now I have to find a place to hide the thing until Christmas. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Cyclone
10-06-2010, 12:58 PM
Whoot!!

Finally found some Gold today.

WalMart - Nothing.
Target - Found KiAdi Monday, Goji, & The Flaming Trooper on the pegs. No Teth ARF, but I'm ok. I got Ki & Goji. Left the Flamer on the pegs. I really don't like him that much.

Then I found the ARC and Mando BPs. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif Good trip.

Target is scheduled to have SW endcap as part of Fall reset around 10/17. Some collectors have already found 39.99 exc. Hoth BP's. Endcap will also include new Geo. 2-packs.

olpc1701
10-07-2010, 09:00 AM
was going to report that yesterday..... I scored my Hoth battle packs yesterday in Ellicott City. every target in this area has them along with the Vintage snowspeeder and Tie Fighter. The only thing on that list of DPCI's that wasn't in the area was the clone wars 2 pks they're suppose to get. The Hoth Battle are really nice for the price point. A friend of mine also found the new vehicles swamp speeder and droid bomber

Cyclone
10-07-2010, 02:06 PM
Well, I had time this morning for an extended scumming adventure.

Rockville TRU - Nothing new except the Fett UBP and Nitko.
Rockville Target - 3x KiAdi-Mundi, 1x Goji
Rio Target - KiAdi, Flamer
Gburg TRU - Nothing New
Germantown - WM - Nothing New (tons of Orange Plague Legacy figures)
Germantown Target - Flamer from Yesterday and a KiAdi.

I still can't find the Teth ARF, considering how many KiAdis where out there, I'm surprised the Teth so hard to find.

CdtWeasel
10-07-2010, 03:50 PM
Kinda seems that target around here skipped the Teth wave. Did see a lone Kit Fisto at my local target this week, not sure if he is repacked in the conehead assortment or if the rest of his wave was already sold. I would like to find a 4th teth arf.

Cyclone
10-07-2010, 11:14 PM
I just want two Teths and then I would be happy. I was lucky that I picked up Fisto and Mace when I saw them. Because I haven't seen then anywhere else since.

valin_horn
10-08-2010, 01:27 PM

where you located maybe we could trade

I need Flamethrower clone, long hair winter soldier, classic havok from marvel universe line and any indiana jones figure or I could just sell it to you at cost $7 of target

10-08-2010, 04:25 PM
First official report for the DC area since I moved in. The Hoth sets are in Columbia Heights as are the ROTS figures. Still need 3 more Magna Guards. http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data//500/thumbs/DSCI0093.JPG (http://forum.rebelscum.com/imagepopup.php?imagename=http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data//500/DSCI0093.JPG)

DPCI is 0870602249

jedisquared

Picked up Defense of Hoth BP at south Glen Burnie Target using DPCI#. Great diarama fodder for 39.99.

Anakin21
10-10-2010, 04:37 PM
Was able to pick up a few more Vintage foils at Target on Saturday (Grievous & Sandtrooper).

Any idea if the $5 sale extends to Vintage? Didnt make it to a Target today.

Saw a Y-Wing from last season at Marshalls for $39.99.

Don't remember what it retailed for, but I think I remember seeing some of you guys got it for cheaper on clearance/sales? Anyway, was still surprised to see it at a Marshalls.

Cyclone
10-11-2010, 01:47 AM
I got a Y-Wing for $45 at WM on clearance.

I might take you up on that offer.

BTW: I did see two K'kruck Jedi at TRU G'Burg this weekend. I hadn't not seen any from that wave since they first came out.

Anakin21
10-11-2010, 03:34 PM
Scored a Vintage foil Fett at Rio Target today - never expected to find that one! They only had the one, but there were other foils on the pegs which I left.

Also filled some gaps in the CW line - taking advantage of the $5 sale at Target (which does not extend to Vintage BTW).

olpc1701
10-12-2010, 12:21 PM
the vintage fett seems to be the case that targets are getting. I really would like to see the cody case again but thats probally not gonna happen

valin_horn
10-12-2010, 12:26 PM

jedisquared
10-13-2010, 04:33 AM
Columbia Target had foils on Obi-Wan, Anakin, clonetrooper & Palpy. Geo. two-packs are showing up at area Targets...use DPCI# 087-06-0173, and you may not have to wait for the w/e. Collector/DVD sets & other 2-packs were not in yet. Hoth BP's have already been found. Swampspeeder found at Alabama TRU.

Cyclone
10-13-2010, 08:14 AM
I've spotted KiAdi Mundi at WM and Target this morning, but none of his case friends. Looks like I have missed Teth ARF yet again. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Jabba's Throne has returned to WM after a several week absence.

Not SW related, but I spotted all the new Tron Legacy toys at the Laurel Target...some pretty wicked stuff!

Cyclone
10-14-2010, 12:34 PM
Score!

I went to TRU today and spotted a Cody BARC and 2x AT-RTs. They had been quite elusive after I originally spotted them this summer. They were set up in the otherwise spare front of store Clone Wars display. I decided to get the Cody BARC since I had all of the other BARCs (why not). I had a AT-RT, but since they were so rare, I wanted to pick up another one, but held off.

I went to the regular aisle and found the Mando speeder and OBI Side car BARC. They looked nice, but I think that I will see them again at Target or WM for less (That's what I thought about the cody speeder too)

On the pegs I spied a KiAdi, Goji, and Flamer. Still no Teth. That teth figure must come with a $20 bill in it, since it is always snatched up first.

I went to ring up the Cody BARC and it run up as $11.23!!!? I said WTF!! Turns out the old "white/red" Deluxe figures are 25% off of a $15 price!. I snatched up one of the AT-RTs. So I got a Cody BARC and a AT-RT for about $23. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

There is still another $11.23 AT-RT sitting on display. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

olpc1701
10-14-2010, 02:32 PM
which toys r us????

Cyclone
10-14-2010, 03:34 PM
Gaithersburg Toys R US.

I hope that you are able to get it.

Nerfherder
10-14-2010, 09:01 PM
Notsure if this is rare in these parts but I saw a couple Jabbas at the Wal- Mart in Burke Center this evening. It's the first time I've seen it on a shelf.

jedisquared
10-15-2010, 03:07 AM
I think from what I've read that they're coming back into stock in the WalMarts that had them in the 1st place. I'll keep an eye out for the camo ARF trooper for you, Cyclone.

jedisquared
10-15-2010, 03:10 AM
I also think half the supposed exclusives for the Target SW endcap are NOT going to show up in time for Sunday. I hope I'm wrong. Many DPCI #'s are showing up not in stock...I really wanted that Senate guard two-pack.

Cyclone
10-15-2010, 08:20 AM
I wouldn't worry about the Target/WalMart exclusives. Last year the Octurra Droids/AT-STs & Ryloth/Abregado exclusives were plentiful and often made it to clearance prices. So I wouldn't sweat it.

Jabba has reappeared at the Germantown Walmart. I'm happy with my Clone Wars Jabba, so I will pass on that one. I will however be getting the Koon & Fisto fighters as well as the Target CW exclusives (Senate Commandos, Bounty Hunter and Hidden Enemy BPs).

My only hold out will be for a AT-AT on clearance. My son's Birthday is Dec 29th, so usually we can score some good clearance items the days right after Christmas. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif I got him a $50 Turbo Tank last year as well as a $20 Tie Fighter (which had been $40)

CdtWeasel
10-15-2010, 03:23 PM
On the pegs I spied a KiAdi, Goji, and Flamer. Still no Teth. That teth figure must come with a $20 bill in it, since it is always snatched up first.



The teth trooper is from the wave previous those 3. If you see Fisto, Officer Droid and Gree then you have just missed out on the teth trooper.

Cyclone
10-15-2010, 10:13 PM
I was thrown off since the figure's picture is on the back of those other figures, as if he is part of their wave.

The Yellow Battle Droid Cmdr also had eluded me. I figured that no one would want him.

Glassman6
10-16-2010, 09:06 AM
Columbia TRU-BRU had a Grand opening yesterday.
LOTS of figs but aside from a few Teth nothing to scream about.
The Clone Wars Battle pack with Slave 1, lil Boba and Bossk was there, may go back and get one today.

jedisquared
10-17-2010, 04:34 AM
Glen Burnie TRU had several Goji pilots, flametrooper clones, a Ki-Adi Mundi & some new stuff in misc. aisle: Ghostbusters 2 multi-figure pack as well as a cool BTTF II 1/15 scale Delorean with lights & sounds. Severn SuperWalMart got Jabba's Throne back in stock(finally). Checked several Targets with DPCI #'s...some big stuff's gonna be missing for Sunday, or Hasbro's cutting it pretty close with Target's projected 10/17 endcap date. NO DVD sets or exc. two-packs.

olpc1701
10-17-2010, 06:51 AM
the south glen burnie target had all of the two packs and dvd sets

valin_horn
10-17-2010, 03:58 PM
target sux its that simple
I hit both GB and both Columbia and not one employee knew that had [censored] to put out
thankfully the electronic guy at the south gb target took it upon himself after I was the 5 guy to question him about the sw stuff today to remove all the nerf crap and completely set up the sw endcap all by himself
so that had the old school tie and snow speeder boxes the 2-packs the arena shodown pack the dvd battle packs and the chicken walker

jedisquared
10-17-2010, 04:48 PM
That was probably due to me this am also, pitching a fit no endcaps were in sight anywhere. I got the 4-figure/DVD & 2-figure packs at north glen burnie target using DPCI. I was wrong...I guess they had them in the back all along, but not that could be scanned aS IN STOCK. South location seemed to have a DPCI mix-up between 2250 & 2251 #'s, plus the lady I asked for help was copping attitude. A nice guy named Jonathon in elect. at north location was able to pull what I wanted.

JEDITOMKATT
10-17-2010, 07:00 PM
Found everything but the new ships and 2 packs with Count Dooku

olpc1701
10-17-2010, 08:04 PM
the glen burnie target south did have an attitude about getting stuff out.....they act like i'm taking these toys out of a four y/o hands or something.

Cyclone
10-18-2010, 12:31 PM
I read about some cheap Y-Wings at Marshals, so I decided to take a look. Sure enough, there was a pair of $39.99 Y-Wings on the shelf. Nice, but I already have two, I would look dumb getting a third. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif (so give it about a week or two)

I found a Battle Droid commander (yellow paint) at Rio Target. They also had a SA Fisto, so it looks like I missed the Teth ARF yet again. No new displays at Rio or Germantown Targets, yet my iPhone Target app shows that both have the Senate Commando 2paks in stock.

Flacksguy
10-18-2010, 09:03 PM
Nothing new at my local Target either.
They have everything in the back, but won't put it out.

....ain't gonna sell it that way.

Anakin21
10-19-2010, 10:40 AM
Target in Burke reset with their endcap. Saw pretty much everything there as of this morning. Didn't get anything, though the Senate Guard 2-pack is pretty neat!

Only went looking for the Flametrooper - but doesnt look like they got that assortment.

jedisquared
10-19-2010, 03:30 PM
Columbia Greatland Target had whole endcap display with all exclusives there, plus flametrooper clone wave on pegs.

Flacksguy
10-19-2010, 08:08 PM
A nice lady at my Target pulled the stuff I wanted today for me without me even asking. She remembered me from yesterday.
Got both Hoth sets, and all the Geonosis sets except the Anakin and Obi-Wan.

Really like the Rebel Hoth set.
I feel like I may need another one.
...anyone looking for just the turret?

DarthCaedus
10-20-2010, 06:03 PM
thanks for the tip jedisquared. got the hoth sets and the 4 geonosis sets i wanted at columbia target. also found a foil anakin there. think i only need foil boba fett now. picked up kit fistos starfighter sunday at walmart . btw target has the geonosis sets on sale for 9.99 each instead of 12.99.

jedisquared
10-21-2010, 03:32 AM
Always glad to help! Yes, if you paid 12.99(like I did) for the NEW Geo. 2-packs, take the receipt to Guest Relations & they will adjust.

Cyclone
10-21-2010, 08:45 AM
I spotted the Fisto Fighter at Walmart this morning. Nothing new at Target.

I did read in the TRU thread, that Deluxe figures are supposed to be on sale for about $13 this Sunday.

CdtWeasel
10-22-2010, 07:58 AM
Looks like between the various stores, all of the exclusives are available in Manassas. Outside of those I didnt see anything 'new' though.

Cyclone
10-22-2010, 12:49 PM
Found the new SW end cap at the Gaithersburg RIO Target. Hoth BPs, Hidden Enemy & Bounty Hunters Bps, assorted figures. Still no Teth ARF.

Went by Kohls just to see. The actually hat a lot of figures, and they were on sale. Bad News, they are all of the same pegwarmers as everywhere else, and the Sale price ended up being $9.38 per figure. Nutz.

Even ran by TRU, nothing new, but my Mando speeder is still in its hiding place. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

jedisquared
10-22-2010, 02:09 PM
Both Hanover & Severn WalMarts had exclusive Kit Fisto starfighters & repack/2-pack/DVD sets.

Anakin21
10-22-2010, 02:37 PM
Burke WM restocked. Had gotten the CW Flametrooper wave, but those elusive guys were already gone.

Also had Jabba's Palace sets out, DVD sets, as well as a restock of Vintage. Had a number of foils, left them all. Still only missing the Magna foil.

Flacksguy
10-23-2010, 12:00 AM
My wife picked me up another Defense of Hoth today, since I was home sick.
That was nice of her.
I really like these two sets, I'm really trying not to go crazy and buy a bunch of each to create a huge Hoth battle.

jedisquared
10-23-2010, 05:21 AM
I hear you...I'm ready to change my son's play table from Geonosis to Hoth...going to find some fake snow, or something at a hobby store like you'd lay down on a train platform.

Cyclone
10-25-2010, 12:39 PM
I took advantage of the TRU sale and picked up the Mando Speeder & PloKoon Speeder. I passed on the OBI Wan sidecar BARC, although I know it will be mine one day.

jedisquared
10-25-2010, 02:53 PM
Still haven't seen the Mando speeder anywhere...TrU was a little more than I wanted to pay right now.

Got mine today as well. Nifty figure. That mat is better quality than i expected. Should hold up to a bit of abuse by kids. Also neat that they added pockets for carrying around figures and their cards.

Cool. I had just realized that I didn't send away for Bric, so I did so last week. I hope that my turn around time is sooner since it appears that they are well underway in shipping him out now.

I had spotted a Mando speeder at my WM late last week.

jedisquared
10-26-2010, 03:42 AM
I should have a Bric on the way as well. Hey...it's FU II day! I picked up the graphic novel at Books A Million yesterday. They have more SW books out right now than I can shake my wallet at.

Ended up just ordering TFU2 online from NewEgg.com. They have a $10 off promo plus free shipping (and no tax). And since I wont have time to play until the weekend anyway, decided to save $$$ and not pay retail.

Use promo code EMCZYNT22 for the discount.

olpc1701
10-27-2010, 07:56 AM
thats cool....best buy had it where you by 2 games on thier sale page and you get 1 free. So I picked up the FU II, Medal of Honor and got NHL 11 free. Plus they were giving 500 bonus reward zone points for the FU II and Medal of honor so thats 10.00 back on each

Picked up an AT-AT Walker for $49.99 at K-Mart. Wow!! What a price!!




Thanks for the heads up!
Grabbed the last one they had this evening.
Ran up there as soon as I read about it. This one will be for my son for X-Mas (even though he's been playing with MY AT-AT since I got it.)



This is quite the test of willpower.
It's almost like someone is DARING me to drive to other K-Marts, looking for more AT-ATs, and to load up on those Hoth sets while I'm at it.

jedisquared
10-28-2010, 03:36 AM
Received my Bric in the mail yesterday...pretty much mint.

Cyclone
10-28-2010, 12:14 PM
A day late and a dollar short.

I went by K-Mart to try and get a AT-AT and they were all out. I didn't even see it listed in a flyer so that I could try to price match.

I did however catch the Taget SW display that was just set up this morning in Germantown. I was finally able to score a Teth ARF. Now I need just one more. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Does anyone know where there is a K-Mart ad for the $49 AT-AT?

Flacksguy
10-28-2010, 03:56 PM
There is no ad. It just happens to be ringing up at that price.
In fact, when I called yesterday and asked about them, the lady said the price was 99.99, yet when I brought it to the register....49.99

Cyclone
10-28-2010, 05:02 PM
Hmm. I might have to take advantage of their rain check policy.

Hehe, they should have made the AT-AT a 'blue light' special.

olpc1701
10-29-2010, 08:36 AM
I tried printing the ad out from online and trhe photo of the items doesn't transfer onto the print out. No one will take it unless there is an ad to go with it.

Cyclone
10-29-2010, 04:40 PM
Well, I tried today. I went to my K-Mart (Kentlands) and the shelf was empty. So I went to customer service and I was able get a raincheck for $49 (They said it was good for 90 days). They checked the system and said that Aspen Hill showed two in stock. Hmm. I can do that.

Ran over to Aspen Hill. Nothing on the shelves, not even an empty spot for an AT-AT. Luckily I took a pic of the shelf tag at Kentlands with my phone. I showed them the code. The looked it up and found two in stock, but at $75, and the said that they were on clearance. hmm. I think that they have this mixed up with a Turbo Tank.

Anyway I have to check back frequently at Kentlands to try and use my raincheck.

Didn't Cyclone need camo Teth ARF trooper? Also avail. on HasbroToyShop.com(Use SW2010 for discount, Cyclone). I picked up Mando speeder at Severn SuperWalMart. Enjoying FU II on my PS3...not much on story, but superb graphics & enhanced fighting skills.

Score!

Went to Kentlands K-Mart. Got my AT-AT for $49. Plus I used a $5 Clone Cash Coupon, so bring that down to $44. Ka-Ching!

Oh wait, there's more. I found an original 'dirty' clone on the pegs, still in the old blue packaging. Nice, except it was $8.99 for the figure. Still, I have not problem paying the $2 premium for such a cool figure.

I spotted the Tactical Droid w/Mini Tank and the SnowClone w/Speeder at WM. I got the Tactical Droid tank since I kinda like him, plus I never saw him the pegs when he was out.

I'm gonna pass on the snowclone, I never liked him too much and we already got the OBI snow speeder anyway.

Well, since I got the AT-AT last week, I decided to get try and get some more Hoth stuff. So I went to Target this morning to try to get an AT-AT Commander and a Dack since the vintage figures are on sale. Well, there are many Commanders, but it appears that Dack has disappeared. I used to see him everywhere. He was even MIA at WalMart. Hate to think I missed out on him after seeing him so often. I'm sure he'll turn up soon.

I pondered a $20 snow speeder, declined for now. But I'm sure I'll get it soon.

New TCW Deluxe Vehicles at Target Germantown today. I picked up a Boil AT-RT. I left behind a Mando Speeder, Obi Side car, and SnowClone Freeco.

Oh, and WalMart at the Shadow ARC-170 on sale for just $30. Not bad for a large vehicle. Thats even cheaper than the Marshals Y-Wing which was priced that same as the ARC when they first came out.

If anyone comes across an extra set of the ROTJ wave and can pick it up for me, I'd appreciate it.
My problem is, Targets around here get one case in at a time and thats it. So if I miss just one figure, I'm out of luck. Plus we only have two Targets here in Winchester.
I was finally able to find the Swamp Speeder and Hyena Bomber, but not the Droid Gunship (which was the one I wanted most) but I'm sure it will turn up.

I didn't get to scum all weekend. I stopped by WM this morning to find nearly vacant pegs. Which I like, that means new stuff soon. They still have a $30 ARC-170, but the shelf is in disarray.

It looks like their DVD two packs are not moving very well. Too bad they were dumb enough to use only old figures in them. Had they put in new figures like the two packs from last year (Yoda & the Ambush Clones) or Cody & Fives, Rex & Echo, then I'm sure those things would have moved.

Haven't seen it elsewhere, so figuring I'm missing it. But is the matchstick different in this pack? Looks like he has a removable helmet, which the original lacked I thought.

Cyclone
11-16-2010, 03:58 PM
The original Matchstick does have a removable helmet. That was one of the reasons that I am surprised/disappointed that the new Goji Clone pilot does not have a removable helmet.

I went to WM to see what they stocked overnight. Just a TCW W3R2 case. I picked the Camo ARF up after much contemplation. I already have two (Thanks Sean), but he is only $6.

Target in Germantown has both the ARC Troopers BP and the Mandolorians BP. I put them both behind all of the Holocron/Droid BPs. So if anyone wants em, there they are. That Target also has some ROTJ figures. One thing that I noticed was that the SW endcap was gone. All of the 'exclusives' are now off the floor. No Hoth BPs, no Clone Cinema BPs, no Vintage Tie/SnowSpeeder, no Clone 2packs. I hope they return.

Thanks to a few bent cards I managed to pick up a G Guard, R2Bar2 and Woof. Seems like I keep showing up a minute late everywhere as I see other collectors with the figs I want in their hands. Still looking for 2 more guards, Ackbar and wicket.

My local Target had a case of ROTJ out on the pegs today. Picked up all but a badly beat up Ackbar.
Also placed an order for more Rebels and Gammoreans from HTS.
I should now be pretty well set with this wave between what I wanted for myself, my son and to keep carded.
I may pick up another Ackbar at some point, and I'm sure I'll grab more Rebels as I see them, but I think I can relax now and stop running around to Target and WM every evening.

No Wedge Antilles

As reported on RS.com:
"As for Wedge, it was revealed during Celebration V that while Wedge was originally planned to be a repack of the figure from 2009's Target-exclusive Wedge Antilles' X-Wing Starfighter. However, Hasbro decided that they really wanted to do right by Wedge and give him an all-new head sculpt, since that particular one wasn't the best likeness. There was some thought during CV that he would be done in 2010, although since he has yet to show up on any pre-order case assortments, it's clear that did not happen.

At any event, look for both figures to be released sometime in 2011...most likely in the fall."

So Christmas/Boy's Birthday (Dec 29th) looks like this.

AT-AT
Fett UBP
Attack on Hoth
Defense of Hoth
Hostage Crisis BP
RC HailFire Droid
Snow Speeder
Fisto Fighter
About 10 Wave 4/5 figures.
AT-RT with Boil

I have left to get PloKoon's fighter and perhaps the SideCar speeder.

Now I have just have to figure out which ones are going to be from Grandma and which ones are from Santa or Parents.

BTW: He called me out on the 'Clone Fairy' last night. He said for me to stop 'tricking' him and that he knew that I really was the 'Clone Fairy'. This deception was making him very angry. So I told him not to worry anymore and that there won't be anymore 'Clone Fairy' to make him angry like this. I quickly saw his look of victory give way to one of "Uh F*ck, what have I done?" He quickly changed his tune to one more accepting of the 'Clone Fairy'. hehe.

Got some real nice vintage figures in the mail today from someone in the vintage forum, at a good price.
Was impressed by how good condition they were for 30yr old figures.

Yeah, that 9pack is a monstrosity. I saw a few on Black Friday up in NJ. I know that the environmentalist have a gripe with excessive packaging for a product. Boy would they have a field day with that thing.

The only thing left on my list (unless a new wave of TCW figures hit the pegs) is the Plo Koon fighter. Is that thing even out yet? I'll admit that the vehicles around here have sold out most of the time and the shelves left bare. But still I haven't heard of any getting a ship either, so I'm wondering if its even out?

I saw the WM exclusive TIE Bomber (at least I think it was the TIE Bomber - only looked quickly) earlier in the week. Wasn't back in the normal section, was up front with a bunch of other toys.

They also had a ton of new CW and Vintage figures - but all the one's you'd expect to be gone, were gone. These were in multiple displays in 3 different locations in the store.

Came across these prints, which are supposed to invoke the vintage travel poster feel - but adapted for various planets from the SW universe.

Thought you guys may appreciate them. I think the Coruscant one in particular is really neat!

Wow, it was a good thing that I did my shopping early. The BAT-ATs are gone from Target/WM. I haven't seen them there now for almost two weeks. WM did stock some Vehicles today, but only one case. At both stores the figures have been reduced to mostly peg warmers. A few ShakTi and R4 can still be had. Vintage at Target is down to 4 figures; Cloud Pilot, 4LOM, Dengar, and AT-AT commander.

The AT Commander surprises me, since I thought that people would be picking him up to man all those BAT-ATs that are sold out. I guess some Moms don't put two and two together.

Ran up to Target this morning to pick up another XBox Kinect game, and they had one lone Defense of Hoth battlepack left on clearance for 27.98.

Santa has come and went. It was a very SW Christmas. I bet George Lucas and Steve Jobs sing Carols together, because they sure cashed in this year.

Our house got:

BAT-AT, Fisto Fighter, Clone Tank (red), Hoth Defense, Hailfire, Mando Speeder, Naboo Skiff, and about 10 figures.

I have to say that the AT-AT just exceeds my expectations. Its huge and beautiful. I can just gaze at that thing for an hour. I want to run back to my childhood home and grab up my old figures so they can finally realize their full potential in that beast.

I went by WM/Target last night.

The WM was in full 'mess after Christmas' mode. I saw figures in about 3 or 4 locations. Mostly all TCW stuff from Wave 5. (ShakTi wave). Price was still at $6.99. I was hoping to find a $49 BAT-AT or some other great bargain like I did last year. Nope. The one AT-AT that had been occupying some shelf space over in the lego aisle was gone. I scanned a few vehicles to see if I could find some unadvertised clearances, but nope. Not yet anyway.

Target was pretty sparse. I ended up sorting figures again (a personal shame if I'm caught doing it) They are all out of AT-ATs, HailFires, 3.75" vehicles, Hoth UBPs. They pretty much are wiped out. They did have asst figures, 9packs, Bane 2packs and a lot of those Geonosis packs.

My son's 6th Birthday is coming up Wednesday, so I was hoping to score some bargains for him.

I went to the two Targets today at lunch. The RIO had the 9pk for $35 while Germantown had it for $25. Even at $25 I don't need the figures that are in it, so I passed.

Enjoy it while it lasts....my son just turned 11, and is loosing interest in action figs. It's all about the XBOX and iPOD now... He still has 2 battlepacks he didn't open from 2 Christmases ago... Didn't get the BMF or the BAT-AT due to this, which made me sad... So, I actually went through some storage that I had been saving this year, thinking he might regain interrest, but no dice. Ended up returning about $200 worth of SW Hasbro stuff just prior to Christmas. Luckily Target, WM, and TRU have decent return policies for no-receipt merchandise if you are willing to get a gift card...Returned TFU TRU battlepacks, Snowspeeder, Cloud Car, some figs, etc. I'm keeping some of the carded figs for myself. He still wants SW Lego's, which is keeping me happy.

yeah, I remember that Christmas when I was 13 years old. My Mom had yelled down the stairs "What do you want for Christmas!?" I was playing busily with my Intellvision and chimed back sarcastically "Star Wars Figures". I was now 13 and was really just interested in anything that would make me more cool (ie desirable to girls).

Well unknown to me, she was on the phone with my Aunt who had picked me in the Secret Santa gift exchange. So sure enough, when the family Christmas party took place. All of my other teenage cousins were getting Adias clothes or other fashionable items, I got 4 ROTJ figures. Argh, what a let down. Of course now, they are the four figures in my collection which are in the best shape since I never played with them.

Still, I have a few good years left with him. He's a really good kid and we are having a blast together during his childhood years.

Very melancholy reading your stories....I, too, have a stepson(14) who is a delight. He loves Star Wars, but more the movies(he's never been a cartoon kid). He also has a degenerative condition which took a turn for the worse around the end of October. He subsequently had hip replacement surgery at Johns Hopkins; got him home & he pretty much stopped eating. He had a nose feed tube inserted into his small intestine, and after battling skin & bloodstream infections plus fevers all thru Christmas(still not sure what's going on with his stomach. I ran into several of you in the field(thanks, Scott...for your time & concern). He's a fighter, and I know he will pull thru. He's doing so much better, in fact, they're proceeding with the stomach port feed tube today. You guys with healthy children are so blessed, and I know you realize that. Please keep your fingers crossed for my Tyler in the coming weeks. I achieved my dream of getting close to George Lucas thru him...he was the little guy who went up on stage to meet GL at the 1st Q&A at Celebration III. They say everything happens for a reason, and I believe that. Happiest of New Years to you all!

Sure is quiet around here...

I went by Targets and WalMart last night.

Wall Mart: All Jabbas and Tie-Bombers are gone. Found a AT-AT on the lego aisle again. Scans for $99.97. (no deal there)

Target: Still some Bane/IG86 & 9Paks on clearance. (Germantown of course much cheaper than RIO).

A few HailFires left at Target (I see the HailFire over at the R/C section in many stores (TRU & K-Mart) instead of the SW section. But they are still full price.

My son likes to close and open the "eyes" of his Hoth AT-ST each night and morning. You know, because it sleeps and wakes up. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I took a trip up to Frederick WM today. They had one Jabba and one Tie Bomber. Jabba $15, Tie $38. Still, they had a VC R2D2. Looked good, but I passed. They also had a few AT-ATs. Scanned at $99.97. When will they go on Clearance?!?

Well, I almost finally bought Yarna today. I went to K-Mart to look for Lock. He wasn't there, but they had a "Everything must go" cart with a sign that said everything was $1 and that price would ring up at the register. Well, they had two Yarnas on there. I figured, what the heck, its a dollar and I have a gift card from K-Mart. She has a $3 sticker on her, so I take her (and some Pet Shop pets for my daughters) up to the register. Sure enough, she rings up for $3. Pass.

Saw part of the AOTC wave tonight at Wal-Mart.
Picked up Jango, Zam & Senate Guard. The only other figure from that wave was the Super Battle Droid, but I already have an army of those.
None of the others were there.
Sucks that they only got one case in. Aside from the very first wave, distrubution of the Vintage Collection has been just awful around here.
Only saw the ROTS wave a couple of times, and the Jedi wave fewer than that. If it wasn't for HasbroToyShop, I'd have been in trouble.

Around here, even $11 per figure TRU is down to the peg warmers.

I spotted some of the ANH VC figures at WM yesterday. R5D4, Farmboy Luke, Olympic Skating Champion Solo. I'm not a VC collector so I had to pass. (Once I get started... the $$$ just flows).

I went over to Target and found Bane/Todo360 figure on the pegs. Someone beat me to the rest of the new wave. They either didn't want the new Bane, or since his card looks very very much like the Bane from the last wave, he could have just been unnoticed.

I spotted 2x new OBI and a Hevy at Germantown Target. Funny that R7 is the only one from that wave that I haven't spotted yet. I would have thought that he was going to be the pegwarmer from that wave.

The figures that I did see were up on the top pegs, so I guess they were 'hidden'. The OBI didn't really stand out against the other OBIs that remained from the previous wavs. So if you were really paying attention, he was easy to overlook. The same with this releases's CadBane. There are still many older Banes and the pegs. So unless you notice the Todo, he too can be easily overlooked.
