Spotted nothing around here. Either same empty pegs, or pegs stuffed with warmers from 2 or 3 waves ago.

Well, I'm gonna start hunting for that B Wing from KMart. I havent actively hunted a Kmart store since their exclusive battlepacks from ROTS. Although I did get a Clonetrooper set exclusive to them about two years ago. Their aisles are always a wreck, prices are higher than everywhere else and theres little turnover of stock.

Cyclone

Yeah, K-Mart is one of those "Every once in a while" places to hunt. I do sometimes find Gems there.

I went there earlier this week to get a Cooler. I stopped by the Figures aisle and spotted a guy leaving with a armful of Mini Rigs. I strike up a conversation. He's a Frederick area collector who vists Jedi Temple Archives. I invited him to join us here. Who knows.

The K-Mart in the Kendlands is actually much neater than the others I have visited. But their checkout lines are consistently slow. If you are the fifth person in a line, you really can expect to be in the line for nearly 20 minutes.

lol I tend to avoid the Kentlands K-mart. Having 2 checkers with like 10 people waiting is a nightmare. There have been times I have dropped what I planned to buy and walked out because the wait was so long.

I'm sure some of us collectors here have hit Starwarsshop.com from time to time to buy swag, if not just look. Kinda sad to here that the official store has now shut it's doors. I hope starwars.com replaces it with something bigger and better!

Well, one week later, I find the whole Bespin Han wave.
COlumbia target had em this morn. So i got Barris, Bom, Logray and Fleet trooper, and a second Han to pilot my BMF.
It Kills me to see all the SDCC pics and the name cards at their feet and it reads "available : NOW" and they aren't.

Tell ya what guys, I'm salivating pretty hard each time I see that Hasbro Death Star Pack from Comic Con. G4TV.com has a couple videos on the Hasbro Exclusive toys. That thing is friggin huge! It sells for $129 at the Con but I hear people are standing in line like 5 hours just to get Hasbro swag and thats after standing in line to get a ticket to have the opportunity to stand in line for swag! I know these will show up on ebay but they'll end up at $250 or more easy. Kills me!

Saw discontinued Galactic Heros at TJX today - $3.99 each.

Didnt take note of which ones, but there were at least a dozen or so.

Also had Wave 12 of the DC Universe figures (Eclipso, Iron, Copperhead etc.) for just $6.99. Not sure if anyone here collects them, thought I'd pass it along.

I return from a Week at the Beach. Nice Time, but no scumming opportunities since y'know, its the beach!

I did hit Germantown Target/WM this morning. I found the Colt Wave at Target. I also most picked up at 2nd Riot trooper, since I usually like to get a pair of clones to go with any commander (Fox in this case). But I passed. They also had those new Movie packs with a DVD and several figures.

I checked WalMart. Nothing new, but they do at least have a pretty decent variety of figures. They even had a couple of ShakTi figures left. She has pretty much disappeared around here. I was thinking about picking up a spare of her since my girls put her to use often.

I went by Target at the Rio. They had a pair of SpaceTrooper Legends and three Ahsoka w/Rotta figures.

I also stopped by TRU G'Burg hoping to find a Fordo. Not sure why, but that TRU hasn't restocked TVC figures since Christmas. Only the Dengar/Lom Figures now for 6 months.

They did have a new Vintage Y-Wing for $40. They also had a Castas, 2x BD with Tank, and a Grevious Wheely cycle.

I ordered one for myself.

Unfortunately I was one of the sheep hoping to score that Death Star Revenge set. Online, massive wait on load times, error messages, then "Out of Stock" blah!

Anyway, local Target had the next wave of their exclusive three packs of figs. Imperial set looked cool but a pass. Still looking for the BWing/Kmart & Ywing/TRU as well as keeping an eye out for those commerotive fig sets for the Blu Ray release. Happy Hunts!

Scored the vintage wave while i was out of town near Detroit. Spotted them at the manassas super target today, picked up the 2nd fleet trooper, fordo and logray I needed.

Also had no luck scoring any of the exclusives I wanted from HTS today. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

My Surprise score of the year, 2nd only to the Jedi Turbo Speeder. I went to Target last night actually shopping for something else. I went to the figures aisle (My body does this on autopilot now) and found Fordo. In fact the whole TVC wave was there on the pegs. I also nearly picked up TVC Barris Offee for my girls, but I held off. At $8.99 the TVC line is pricy.

Cyclone
07-27-2011, 12:45 PM
Another Score today.

I went to Target (RIO) at Lunch. I brought with me the DCPI codes for some of the new Clone Wars BPs, Mini-Rigs, and Attack shuttle.

I go to the Toy aisle and before I enter, I get a "Can I help you find something" from a helpful clerk. I say "Sure, can you run some numbers for me?", he about jumps on that. He says that he shows a case of BPs in the back and goes and gets it.

In it I find:

2x Cad Bane Escape
2x Attack on Geonosis
1x Defend Camino
1x Hunt for Grevious

I pick up the Bane, Kamino, and Greivous BPs. The Paint app on my "Fives" from the Kamino BP is off, so I might actually return that one if a better one turns up. Still a pretty good haul.

The Bane BP looks great, and it even comes with a Holocron, which for some reason I had not noticed, so it was a welcome surprise to me. Oh, and they rang up at $19.99. So the BPs with just 3 figures are at least under $20.

CdtWeasel
07-27-2011, 06:34 PM
Found the Y-Wing today, still one or two left, and got a free kung (cant sell em) zhu hamster that I gave to my stepdaughter. The target I stopped at had most the new items out (no new battlepacks). Picked up the Republic Shuttle and another fleet trooper. If anyone wants to know where I found things specifically, pm me.

Cyclone
07-28-2011, 08:52 AM
I ran by the Germantown Target last night. I punched the DCPI code into a scanner and found that the new BPs are in the stock room. I had a clerk pull the case and I got a Kamino BP with a Decent Fives.

They also had a pair of Attack Shuttles on the shelf. It does look pretty cool, just wish that it had a better pilot.

Well had kmart tell me the bwing wasn't in stock at one store, and the other said it will probably show up in the new reset that they are starting in a week or so. Found some of the new battlepacks at the mall. Still on the hunt for a Wolffe and now the Kamino battlepack.

Anakin21
07-31-2011, 05:07 PM
Saw the Blu-Ray commemorative sets at Target - though if you buy just 4 you end up spending more than what the Blu-Ray set costs. While nice looking, I'm definitely passing on those.

Also saw the new CW battlepacks - and finally found a MOMC vintage rebel trooper.

Also noticed last year's single carded basics (Legends & CW) are showing up at TJX and Marshalls for just $3.99, though not in large numbers. Still finding those deluxe figures there as well, saw another Mandalorian Speeder, as well as a BARC and Obi Wan speeder.

Cyclone
08-01-2011, 12:39 PM
Wow, another big scumming day that didn't pay off until the end.

I had business down in Rockville, so I hit up the Target and TRU. I saw that Saga Legends figures are now marked down to $6.99 and if for some reason, you need a Ki-Adi Mundi figure, they have like 10 of them. TRU in Rockville didn't have any new figures. I then ran up to the TRU in Gaithersburg. They have another Vintage Y-Wing, but still no Commander Blackout/SpecOps trooper.

I then ran by WM & Target in Germantown. Target did the reset, but still hasn't really put out the mini-rigs or deluxe figures. They did restock the Attack Shuttle and mark down the SL figures. Hostage Crisis BP have not yet been moved to Clearance and scans for $25.

Since I had time, I ran by TJMaxx and Kohls since I hadn't visited either one in several months. Now I remember why, not a single figure at TJ and only 1 SL leia at Kohls.

I was about to call it a day, when I saw that I had about half an hour left and decided to check out the RIO Target & Kohls that I had passed by on I-270. It only took 10 mins to get down to Target. There they had those new Mini-Rigs including the Y-Wing. I remember reading about them scanning at way cheap prices. So I took the Mini Y-Wing and ARF Scout Speeder over to the scanner. $4.47 each! Woah! They also had the Bane Speeder and Anakin Naboo Skiff in the new smaller packaging.

I hustled over to the check out and got the Y-Wing and the Scout for under $10 combined. Nice! I tipped off another Dad on the aisle about the scanned price. He had to check it out for himself as I left. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Satisfied with my steal of a deal (the shelf sticker I think was $17 for the Mini-Rigs) I passed on RIO Kohls for today.

Oh, and the Rio Target also had the Remote Control Clone Tank.

Ha!!!! That was you!!! We met and didn't even know it ( I was the Black guy with the white jersey)!! Sadly the other mini rigs rang up 16.99. I had the Y wing in my hand and set it down because I wanted the Arkham City 2 pack more. Let me know what you think of the Y wing after/if you open it...I'm kinda on the fence about that one. Well nice "meeting" you anyways!!

Cyclone
08-01-2011, 03:23 PM
hehe, yep that was me. Sorry about, I was hoping that they would all ring up at that good price. I bet if you look up that code on the scanners of some of the other Targets, they may have some in stock that hasn't made it to the shelf yet.

I actually don't like the mini-rigs. But I know that my kid will love them. Besides, I also got two new figures for that price. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif I'm pretty complete when it comes to clones. So Warthog & Kamino ARF were on my list, even if they do have goofy vehicles.

DCPI Code: 087-06-1402 You can manually enter that into any of those end of aisle scanners and it will tell you if that have any cases in the backroom. A store clerk might even be able to look up in other stores.

Man, too bad I didn't strike up more of a conversation, it would have been fun face to face. I almost said something when you indicated that you already had the other deluxe figures. But I wanted to rush to the register to see if I really was going to get those figures for $4.47. I kept thinking that it wasn't going to work.

I went by the Germantown Target today. They had put out the Mini-Rigs. I picked them up for just $4.25. Not bad. Germantown is always less expensive than snobby Gaithersburg. (Or as they like to think of themselves North Potomac)

If anyone wants them and is willing to make arrangements to pick them up in the Germantown Area, let me know.

They had also put about 3 cases of the new Clone Wars BPs. They had Bane, Kamino, Geonosis, Greivous, and even the Zillo Beast BP. Plus they are now up to 4 Attack Shuttles on the display.

Too bad they haven't put out any cases of new TCW figures in a while.

Had to drop the MiL at the train this morning, so on the way in to work I hit target. Looks like there reset was still fresh. Picked up the ARF mini-rig for $4.64 (thanks for the tip Cyclone). All the others there were scanning at full price. Haven't seen the mini Y-wing anywhere around here yet though. So that and Cpt. Wolffe are the 2 sw items I'm left hunting.

I stopped by Target & Walmart in Germantown this morning.

Target has a lot of SL figures, but the TVC and TCW figures are getting thin. They do have a $4.24 Scout Speeder on the pegs. I scanned it to verify that its still on 'clearance'. It is. It was really hard not to [censored] it up, but since I've already purchased two of them, I felt it was better to let someone else have some good luck.

WM's aisle is nicely stocked, but really, there isn't a single figure on their pegs that wasn't available last October.

I went to the Washingtonian Target yesterday and broke down and got the y wing (still 4.97) I almost wish I would have picked up the Castas speeder at the Rockville Target and exchanged it for a double of the y wing to get that at 4.97 as well. It is slim pickings...I hope the TRU battlepacks show up soon.

Don't think that would work. The UPC's are tied to different DCPI's. The speeder and y-wing are the old dcpi while Casta is the new code.

Still no sign of Y-wings down here, though target restocked new vintage for the 3rd time. May be the last since the pegs are stuffed full of the same ol pegwarmers that filled the other half the case.

Cyclone
08-11-2011, 01:09 PM
I went to TRU in Gaithersburg Yesterday. They did not have the Stealth Ops in yet. I am fighting the urge to check there everyday. But I know from Ponds/Nitko experience that this figure will be plentiful and on occasion free during the next year.

I ended up picking up a 3rd scout speeder from Target. I had seen it last week and no one had touched it for nearly a week. I had left it last week since I felt guilty of picking up all of the $4.24 low hanging fruit. But now that is sat on the pegs for a while, I figure that all of the hunters have had their chance.

Walmart still has stuffed pegs with old stock. Sad for me.

CdtWeasel
08-12-2011, 09:16 AM
I've still only seen one Scout speeder which I bought, and none of the Y-wings. Seems most the other sets are warming the pegs. Not too surprising since they were still warming the pegs when they had slightly different packaging. Silly hasbro.

I checked Walmart today since its Friday (a good stocking day here) and because I read that someone found a TCW Chewy at a WM. But nothing new. Besides, their pegs are full of stock that are the same figures as last year. And at $7.88, they aren't moving anytime soon.

It is that time of the year for the $4.50 special. I hope its soon.

08-15-2011, 02:51 PM
My WM still has two HailFire Droids (TRU also has a few). I got one for $15 at Target on Clearance back in the Spring. I will scan the WM ones, but I'm not really looking for another.

We found that the controls were not sensitive enough to control it properly. So it doesn't get played with too much. Unless of course you are using it to volley 24 shots at Dad while he's on the floor playing with other figures with your Sisters. Then it works great.

I ran by Target & WM in Germantown. Nothing new to report there. Target does have Waxer/ATRT, Naboo Skiff, Jesse BARC, and some other DELUXE figure in the new more compact packaging.

I went by the TRU in Gaithersburg last night. I found a Stealth Ops Trooper (aka Cmdr Blackout). The odd thing was that there was only one of them. I would have expected to have seen a whole peg full of them, but no, just one.

They also had opened a case of those exclusive deluxe vehicles. They had on Hanger Tech and 3x Geo Bug speeders. Each seemed to have some packaging damage. I passed on the bug speeder for now, but will likely pick him up one day when things are slow. I know that the Hanger tech is rare, but I have little interest in the TVC line.

I took Blackout to the check out and he rang up for $10.54. huh? I said that figures are $8.99 here. The guy quickly adjusted the price at the register. Good service actually. Not sure if his exclusive status means a premium on price. But I guess I haggled the price down. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

The best part it rang up for the 2 for 10.99 price. I am guessing that the pegs got emptied over the weekend cause they were so cheap.

Well, the Walmart did their reset last night, but they only relocated their SW stuff from pegs to pegs. So the new pegs are just full of the same old stuff. They are now understocked on the TVC stuff, so I'd expect a fresh stock on those pegs soon. They still haven't put out the: 3 Figure BPs, RC Clone Tank, DVD 2pks, & Attack Shuttle.

The RC Hail Fire droids have been removed from the shelf. I scanned one last night and they are on clearance at $35 in the computer. So I guess that they have been moved to a clearance aisle.

The Prices looks a little high for WM. The RC tank is $43.xx, at Target its $39. Same with several other toys, just a few dollars higher.

My TRU had two pegs for Blackout this weekend. Neither was full. But they did have $9.99 prices on them. I guess they one that I got last week was priced correctly.

I went by WM after lunch. They have started to stock those empty SW slots. They have added BPs, RC Tanks, & BlueRay Figures. They still need to add those DVD 2paks, new TVC, and new TCW figures.

They still had of boxes left to open, so there is hope of more to come by tomorrow morning.

Earthquake!

My office building is a harden data center. When the quake hit, I was thinking that one of our Large Water Chillers (above on the roof) or one of the large industrial water pumps (on the floor below) must have thrown a bearing or something and was about to blow! Luckily it was just the earth having a fit.

No damage here, but I have to wonder about Kings Dominion. That place appears to only be about 10 miles or so from the epicenter. Add in all those things that are way tall such as Eifile Tower, Roller Coasters, Ferris Wheels, Drop Down Rides, etc.. And I can see a whole lot of "I'm not going on any rides for the rest of the day".

once again thanks for the tip. got the other fu set and one of the rc sets.
just transferred a bunch of gg busts from a detlof to the tops of my dvd racks so i figured they would be on the floor after the quake but the only thing i saw tipped over were most of the figures in my other detlof.

It's been a minute. Aug was a hectic month but I am settled in Deleware now. It's been VERY dry around here as well. The only recent thing of note was the RC and FU battlepacks at the only TRU in the area. I went back the next week and they were still there. I am really anticipating the Savage Opress wave and more vintage stuff to show up soon. But on the bright side I'm saving money for GoW3 and the SW saga on Blu-Ray!!

Forcehunter reporting in!

Rockville TRU annoyed me today. I was out looking for the Force Unleashed set there. My friend, a supervisor there, looked it up in the computer for me and it said they had five, but he couldn't find it anywhere. I'll check back tomorrow as he told the stock crew to keep an eye out and tomorrow is their truck day, but damn it. I was so close.
On a positive note though, they did have the Y-Wing, Jedi Turbo Speeder (really needed that) and more Weequays for me to put in my display back in Florida.

I hit Germantown Target & WalMart this morning (no new toys) and the Gaithersburg and Rockville TRU stores at lunch.

Both of the TRU have the Clone Wars displays setup at the entrances. In Gaithersburg the only new figure left was a Cold Weather Fisto. I guess I missed the Bonanza by a few days. They also had a Aqua Droid, so for everyone who missed it its first time around he's back. I checked the remaining aisle and there wasn't any thing else new.

Encouraged, I ran down to Rockville. The big display didn't have any figures until I found an island display with them. Here I found Tiin, Savage shirtless, Seripas, Jet Pack Rex. They also and a couple of Wolffe and more Aqua Droids. At $8.99 I decided to pass on some and ended up getting Savage (I promised him to my Daughter) and Tiin. I left behind Rex & Seripas with the expectation that I will see both regularly between now and Christmas. I wonder if that will come back to haunt me?

TRU may have even had that new Stealth trooper, with so many exclusive Cmdr Blackouts around, he would have been lost in the crowd.

Oh, and Rockville had the A??-7 Cannon also.

BTW: Yesterday evening at Target, they had the 3 figure BP on sale for $17.99. They even had a end cap for it. (facing the rear wall.)

Dover Quieter No Kidding. hehe.

I read that TRU was having a figure sale this week. I checked out the store front display and the figures are $6.29. Not bad. The only trouble was that all of the new figures are gone. The Aqua Droid is still there though.

I tried to find a 'Assasin Droid" BP. They had a shelf sticker for it, but with a little "9/11" sticker also attached. I asked if there was one in the back. They guy looked it up and said that that "9/11" sticker meant that 'distribution' would not be sending that BP to the Gaithersburg store. ??? Really? That explanation does not pass my stink test. We will see if that BP shows up between now and Christmas.

No new figures at Target/WM in Germantown.

I'm not sure who I missed, but I found El-Les and Kamino ARF left on the pegs along with a few repacks that weren't on the pegs a few days ago.

Yeah, the over ordered that Rise of Fett UBP. They have had like 50 of them since last year. They had them on two aisle and two endcaps. They moved some over to the front display now. So hopefully they will begin to move. A few weeks ago I met another Dad in Target @ Germantown and he was looking for the Fett Ship. He said that they didn't have them in Rockville and he was going to head to Hagerstown. Luckily I was able to repoint him towards Rockville.

The only problem with the Rockville TRU is that they seem to be priced about 10% higher on everything. Figures are a buck more, Fett UBP is $110 instead of $99. That kind of stuff.

No other new figures there, but they did have one of those Rebel Hanger Deluxe figures that those TVC folks slobber over. I guess when the trench run X-Wing comes out it will be a cool accessory.

I also visited the Target at Rio. No new figures except one El-Les that mocked me by indicating that I had missed the new figures in his wave. I did several boxes of Monsters cereal which I love. BooBerry, Frankenberry here I come. Count Chocula, not so much.

Hey guys, thought you might get a kick out of it but on the front page there's an article with a couple pics of our recent troop at Best Buy down here (Richmond/Midlothian). I played Vader.haha. Looks like it was fun. I hope they gave you some free stuff.

About the Trench UBP. I'm guessing that every year TRU goes to Hasbro, "Give us some ~$100 SW exclusive", So we have ~$80 Gunships (2009), $100 Fett UBP (2010) and now Trench UBP $100 (2011).

If you don't like the price, wait a few weeks and it will be on sale for $80. Still don't like the price, sign up for some TRU club and get a $10 off any purchase over $75 coupon and get it for $70 when it goes on sale. That's just the way they roll at TRU.

Oh, BTW: I was a Giant yesterday and checked on the TCW figures. I saw that they had a Cato Parsitti on sale for $4.99 (down from $9.99), then I saw it was listed as "discontinued". So make sure you check the toy aisle at Giant to see if there are any wants on the pegs for the final time.

I think that I check out WM about 20 days a month and realized that its very rare that I actually go to the checkout line. So many times I'm empty handed. I'm still kicking myself knowing that I missed that Kamino ARF wave at Target last week. There is still an El-Les there, but the Yoda and Mace from that wave have since been picked up.

I realized that when the Hasbro Fairy came by this week and ******ed up all of the TVC peg warmers, that they missed out picking up the two pegs full of Hoth Han Solos and the other two pegs full of Ep3 Obi Wan Saga Legacy figures. There are probably 24 SL figures with just those two characters. Nothing else SL.

Oh well, Christmas is right around the corner, If I remember correctly, October is usually a very good scumming month. I hope things pick up soon, my soon to be five year old reminded me that I'm supposed to get her an Armored Savage Opress for her birthday (Oct 12th). I don't want to let her down.

I went by TRU in Gaithersburg. They still have the large store front display with little in the way of new figures. Plenty of Blackouts though. They did have the trench run BP. Looks cool, I'm sure it will make a big Christmas present for some boys. I went over to the regular aisle. While they didn't have any new figures there, I did spy these cool infrared 'trip wire' droids. Sold in pairs, a kid would put them at the foot of a doorway or hallway. When someone walks through it would trigger an alarm. hehe. I like it, but I'm keeping it out of my house.

I went by Target at RIO. They had a topless Savage Opress and now Two El-Les figures. I guess I missed another restock. I also ran by K-Mart in Kentlands. zilch.

I had to get an EZPass transponder so I headed into the Kentlands Giant. While there I wanted to check to for any more of those 'discontinued' TCW figures. Good News, they still are carrying the figures. Bad news, they are still $9.99. Good News, they had Savage Opress with Armor, Chewbacca, and the PloKoon Astromech. I picked them up even though it was $31+ when they rang up. :(

It looked like only once case was put out with the rest being repeats. They also had the "Revenge" Vintage figs but no B-Wing pilot (the only one I want).

I had a mega run today. I have my biannual Dr appt in Chevy Chase that not only takes me to areas not regularly covered, but since my eyes are dilated, I have time to kill while that wears off.

Well here's my hunt summary:

TRU Rockville. The Clone Wars big display was taken down this morning. They had a cart filled with figures and a palette cart filled with Trench Run & Fett UBPs. I tried to browse the contents of the cart, but it was so full of SL and old TCW figures that I couldn't located anything fresh. Plus my eyes were still dilated so most still looked too fuzzy to make out unless I picked it up and put it right to my face. bust

Target Rockville. Tons of KiAdi Mundi and Madalorian Cops. I was about to walk off when I noticed a Snow PloKoon on a peg by himself. Score! (if $9+ tax can be considered a win?)

Target Gaithersburg - Overflow of SL figures. It looks like they found three cases of SL figures that had been run over by a truck. All pegs are not stuffed with SL figures, scant TCW selection

Target Germantown - Again more SL stocked, very few TCW figures left. I did pick up a Tri-Droid fighter. That will be for the Christmas tree though.

WalMart Germantown - Nothing new except some of those Galactic Hero replacements Not sure what has happened at WM, but the figures just are not moving there. They have a better TCW selection compared to Target and their price isn't far off. But these pegs have been untouched for weeks. Hopefully they will put up a end cap soon and open up some boxes for new stuff.

Monday Morning restock

I went by WM and as usual, the same figures that have been on those pegs since August (and likely much older). I can't even remember now when the last time I saw those pegs refreshed. I do know that the last time I bought a figure from WM was back when I found Wolffe & S3 Ahsoka back in May. Its hard to believe its been that long.

Better luck at Target. They put up a fresh TCW wave. I was finally able to score Cmdr Jet. The whole wave was still there. I left behind El-Les, Hondo, Heavy, Kamino ARF, Topless Savage, and Snow Plo Koon.

North & South Glen Burnie Targets as well as Ellicott City Target all had multiples of shirtless Savage wave...although Ellicott City was out of Oppress but still had 2X Cdmr. Jet.

Cloud Car Pilots? Wow, those guys were peg warmers last spring. Not sure if you are going to find one now. I'd Check TRUs since they usually let stuff sit on the pegs forever.

Today was a good day this morning. It looks like product is beginning to move on the pegs.

Target in Germantown has figures on sale for $6.99. They also restocked another case of the Jet Wave. So this is the third time I've see them stock that wave. So Jet, SnoKoon, Kamino ARF, and Hondo are there to be had.

WalMart. I could have gone to WM on Sunday but I passed. So this morning what do I see? Two cases of the Colt Wave has been stocked. The only problem is that all of the Colts and Riot Control clones were gone. WM also has figures on Sale for $6.99. There was still two Eath Koths and two Barris Offees there on the pegs. The good news is that the other figures are also beginning to move. The pegs were not nearly has stuffed as there were on Friday. Has the Christmas season begun?

Now if I can only fine the Evan Piell or Jet Pack Rex waves again to fill in the gaps.

I have also seen these cool Star Wars legos Advent Calenders. Each day the kid gets a new legos mini-figure or mini-ship. hehe, I like. Just need to find something equal for my girls.

Pellaeon

I saw Even Piell at Giant in Flower Hill (Gaithersburg). I would also check out Sears in Lakeforest Mall, they had him and maybe even the Riot Control Clone.

Cyclone
10-17-2011, 10:50 AM
I will have to check it out. Thanks

Update: Wow! I went to the Sears since it was on the way to that Giant for me. Good thing. They had Piell and he was only $9.19 there. At the Giant the TCW figures are $10.

The real Wow was the other figures. Instead of a lot of peg warmers with a few new ones, it was the opposite. Mostly new figures with a few BD and SBDs on the pegs. Sears as Colt, Jar-Jar, Baris, PloKoon Astromech, Savage (Topless), and Piell. Looks like I missed the Riot Control trooper, but I already have one, so I can wait until I come across him again at WM or Target.

Did a little scumming today at Lunch.

Good News: The figures are continuing to move at WalMart so the pegs are getting thinner. They still have two Eath Koths sitting there and that surprises me. Bariss, Colt, and Riot figures all moved quickly. I would have thought that at one of the Koths would have sold be now. Heck even the Mando Cop has sold a couple of figures recently.

Target: I spotted the Land Speeder and TaunTaun. $25 for $15 toys. I'll likely get the land speeder one day, but not today. SnoPlo is officially the newest peg warmer. There are now three of them at Target proving once again that he has face that only his mother could love. Or maybe that why he now comes with not only his built in face mask, but now a 2nd snow mask to cover up the first mask. Wow you know you're ugly when you need two masks at the same time.

Still on the pegs was a Hondo and a Kamino ARF.

Did it! Done!

I found my last three figures this morning.

I went by Target and found a fresh stock up of the Rex,Seripas,Tiin, & SnowFisto wave. So I picked up my last three outstanding figures. (Rex, Seripas, & Stealth Clone). I'm now all caught up on the announced figures for this year. Gee, I don't know what to do with my hunting from now to Christmas. I know that new waves are supposed to come out in Jan, be honestly, we never see those until Feb/March.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times....

Oh, I saw the Search for Luke BP at Target. I have a question. The individual Tauntaun is $25, The BP with a TaunTaun, Luke, & Han is also $25. Why is that?

CdtWeasel
10-27-2011, 02:29 PM
Where is this new WM? I still haven't been able to find a Ponda or Echo trooper.

Cyclone, it is silly that the single tauntaun costs as much as the battlepack. In the thread on them, Darthchuck surmised that it is due to the vintage packaging and good likelihood its a smaller run than the battle pack. So the cost goes up with fewer units to sell. Here is hoping for a sale soon.

Germantown WM has added new shelving to the toy aisle. So there is more room up high to stock a bunch of stuff.

Their TVC figures have been decimated. Only two Endor Commandos remain. So I expect a restock soon. We are down to three Cad Banes and three Mando cops. So even the TCW stuff is moving now. There is still a Eath Koth there. I can't believe he has lasted about 3 weeks on the pegs.

TLC stuff is still stagnant. Still mostly SnowHan and EpIII OBI. Target has TLC on sale now.

I am still waiting for those WalMart Exclusive DVD 2 paks to arrive. I wonder what the hold up is? I mean we are hitting prime Christmas shopping season now.

They have two WM DVD packs for TCW that are a lot like the ones from last year. There are only two of them.

1. OBI Wan & 212th Clone (with headlights on the sides of his helmet)
2. S1 Ahoska with a 501st Clone (Crysis?). He comes with a removable helmet, backpack, and some Geonosian snakes.

The headlights of course don't work, but they are variation on the 212th clone, so I'm in. I'm half tempted just to go the eBay route on that figure. I haven't seen much chatter on these two in the past few weeks. I hope that they really are intended for this Christmas and that wasn't just some assumption on my part. I mean I am pretty sure I heard about these figures back in like May or earlier. They are not *new* news.

My son's birthday is just four days after Christmas. So I get two changes to blow him away with cool Clone Wars toys in a single week.

But this year, its going to be a weak week. (God I loved putting that one together :D )

There really isn't much new Clone Wars stuff to gift. Now sure if I had held back on those 3 figure BPs and Mini Rigs from last Summer, then I'd have more options to gift, but I didn't, so I don't. But as I look at the shelves this year, and think about the past few Christmases, I see that there really isn't the quantity of Stars Wars stuff out there to give.

Last year we had:
Big AT-AT
2x Hoth Exclusive BPs from Target
Bane/IG86 & Senate Commando figure 2pks from Target
Exclusive Screen Themed BPs (Hidden Enemy & Hostage Crisis) from Target
Kit Fisto Star Fighter at WM
Jabba Hutt from WM
Plenty of new figures
Several cool Battle Packs (Arc Troopers, Mandos, etc..)
Several new Vehicles
Several new Deluxe figures


This year we have:
Republic Attack Shuttle
TRU Y-Wing
Tauntaun and Landspeeder from Target overpriced
3 waves of figures (12 new figures)
No 3.75 figure Vehicles
No 2pk figures at Target
No Walmart DVD 2pk figures
No Episode Theme BPs at Target
No exclusive anything at Wal Mart


I mean its slim picking this year. I really don't have enough selections to cover just one of the mornings. I may have to skip the Attack Shuttle since we really just don't have room for it in his room anymore. With the deals I go the previous years ($49 AT-TE, $49 Turbo Tank, & $45 AT-AT, $70 Slave I ) we have kinda run outta room for things that don't fit on a shelf or under the bed.

So looking for figures there are some that we got, but no real BPs or Deluxe Figures, or Vehicles. I picked him up a Tri-Droid vehicle. He kept mentioning it and while I didn't like it (and its not really a vehicle) it his present not mine. But I mostly picked it up because there really aren't any other vehicles that I can get him. Repainted tanks? nope already got one ATT, don't need another. Jedi Star Fighters? I have had all five since last year, if there were new ones, I'd buy em, but there aren't.

So today I hit the Hot wheels aisle at TRU. 20% off some cool stuff. Looks like Mattel & Lego are going to get much more of our family's money this season at Hasbro's expense.

CdtWeasel
11-28-2011, 02:08 PM
You left out the K-Mart B-Wing and the TRU Trench Run pack and the Search for Luke BP at target. For vehicles there is the clone wars artillery cannon and supposedly the mandalorian gunship (not sure its been sighted in stores). Still your point is valid, not much to find in stores. The new figure waves are hard to come by as the pegs are full of warmers everywhere (or being left empty and unstocked)

Cyclone
11-29-2011, 09:54 AM
Not much to report. Target and WM are light on the figures selections. Nearly all figures left on the pegs are from last year (save some S3 OBI & Aniken figures).

Yesterday I stopped by TRU and spotted Rex with backpack, Wolffe, 2 CW Chewies, and a lone Even Piell. It was obvious I proably just missed armored Opress (he and Jar Jar(??) were the only two gone. With the 2 for 12.99 deal I ******ed up Peill and a Rex. On a whim I decided to call this am and they had another case which I was allowed to open once I got there. Much to my delight I was able to grab Opress and another Peill. Now I am only needing Serpias and I'll be done for the year. The case pack was wierd. There was one shirtless Savage, Commander Colt, 2 Chewies, Wolffe, that S3 anakin that no one needs, a Destroyer Droid, 1 Jar Jar, and a Super BD. The Chewies, Wolffe, Colt are still there. The new TF Primed figs were out as well. The BB looked nice but not enough to buy at this time. I also saw the new Arkham City (Joker and Robin) 2 packs.

They had the entire Seripas Wave at Germantown Target today. Him, Wolffe, SnoFisto, Rocketeer Rex, & Tiin. Figures are moving at WM too, but they haven't restocked yet. I'm still hoping to find Buzz and his BARC before Christmas. I keep walking the store thinking that its there in some endcap or island far away from the Toy section.

I ended up getting more Hot Wheels and an Easy Bake Oven + an extra cupcake mix (I have girls too you know).

Well, it finally happened. Each year I end up getting the 'Big' Star Wars toy for a steal.

2009: AT-TE & Turbo Tank for $50 when each was retailing for $100
2010: AT-AT for $45 at K-Mart and another for $49 at Walmart
2011: Republic Attack Shuttle. Retail $80, but only $35 at Amazon

Amazon.com: Star Wars Deluxe Republic Attack Shuttle: Toys & Games (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004SGVFBU/ref=oh_o00_s00_i00_details)

That right. Actually I pulled the trigger when it was $40 at Amazon on Friday Night. But it has since dropped.

Did I mention that this was with Free shipping? Nice. So if you have been ambivalent about the shuttle, this should motivate you.

Good Luck, cause I'm not sure how long this price or supplies are going to last.

Note: Saw new TVC figures at WalMart in Germantown. They had Slave Leia, Fordo, Rebel Trooper, Ewok, R5-D4, R2-D2 w/Drinks, etc...

For those hunting them, North Glen Burnie Target got in another assortment of Vintage "Revenge" card figs.

Not been finding anything new on the pegs that is worthwhile. Keepfind left over 'revenge' pegwarmers. Shame my best target has screwed up invetory and thus empty vintage pegs.

In better news, I too took advantage of the amazon sale on the shuttle and looks like its on a truck headed for my house already. That sure was quick.

Well, the Republic Shuttle is now down to $29.99+ Free Shipping. What a bargain!

Germantown Target has a freshly stocked Serpias wave. All his friends are still there, infact there are now some doubles. I still haven't spotted the Buzz speeder at WalMart yet. I'm hoping to spot that one before Christmas.

I'll likely drive all over the place looking for it, and then after I do, the next week it will be pegwarming until July.

Seriphas has been a chore to find (my last need for 2011). I've been keeping an eye on Amazon so hopefully I can grab it. That Attack Shuttle is MINE!!! You cannot beat 30 bucks!! Thanks for the tip!

I did not do any scumming over the weekend.

So I went today after lunch and my WM is a mess. They exclusives are gone. Good thing that I check frequently. They have loaded the pegs up with TLC and TVC figures. Need a Slave Leia, there are at least three of them there. Heck, even a Fordo is there.

Germantown Walmart has moved most of their Republic Attack Shuttles to the front of the store, but they are still priced at ~$80.

How much did that cost?

54.95 plus shipping(this sucker is 19" long & beautiful-Head over to Endor Express for review & pix). Even though it's a "park only" exclusive, you can generally pick them up via the Disney Parks merch. phone number-1-877-560-6477. Be prepared to wait on the phone a while due to the holidays. Most of the ebay prices on the Starspeeder are $100 & up. You may also be able to pick up the Ambush At Star Tours(with Vader's hover platform & skytroopers) & Star Tours Travel Agency fig. sets too. I've waited for this vehicle/playset for a loooonnnnggg time.

I went to the TJ Maxx in Germantown. I never visit it, but I decided to see if I could score any of those $10 TCW BPs that I have read about. I looked, but I did not locate any.

I did see some TVC TPM Figures that I had never seen before. They had the Zam Weilsel, Peasant Padme, Jango Fett, and the most absurdly bad paint app and discolored pair of Stormtroopers that I have ever seen. Oh, and I ran by Kohls and found a few TCW figures that are now marked up to $12.99. No kidding. I think that they then apply some kind of 20% off sale to them. Since all of their figures are pegwarmers, I didn't even try to determine the 'true price' for one.

I went by the Targets, not much going on there.

Germantown WalMart has stocked up a bunch of TVC figures. Lots of Endor Han, Slave Leia, and even another Fordo.

Figures are just not moving at WalMart this year. Target seems to be moving quicker and more consistently.

Sad state of distribution when you find figures at 5 and Below that you have never seen in any of the major 3 stores....

It is sad...never saw a year like 2011 for action figure collecting...to quote Comic Book Guy-"worst distro. year ever. Hopefully Hasbro has learned something from all this. I never saw the Jedi turbo speeder at retail. I actually had the Mando & ARC trooper BP's & returned them(I needed $$$)...thinking they would be plentiful later on. Geez, was I wrong.
