The Lynwood Walmart had a ton of:
- Han Endor/Chewbaccaa/Obi Wan Starfighter pilot wave
- Djas/Palpatine wave
- Bespin wave
- Qui Gon/Rebel Soldier/Orn Fre Taa/Massif

I lost count at about 15 of each of these figures. No Acklays though images/icons/mad.gif

They also had the Star Wars unleashed figures for $15.

The Lynnwood KB Toy Works had some of the unleashed figures too.

Happy Hunting!

It's been awhile since my last post but I haven't had any time to hunt down some figures. Anyhow, Walmart in Renton has nothing new. Tons of the Bespin wave although no bloody stump Lukes. To think I spent forever trying to track a Luke down....just to see him sit now as a Pegwarmer.

Still no sign of a Chewy or Acklay in the South End and now I'm hearing that the new Anakin, Maul, Teemto, and Ki-Adi Mundi are appearing in some areas, as well as the Deluxe Yoda and Threepio. It just never ends does it? I'm hitting the Kent Kmart this afternoon but I don't think I'll have any luck. If I do, I'll be sure to post. Must be pretty dead out there as I haven't seen too many posts lately.

The Bremerton Wal-Mart has plenty of Saga up through the Djas Puhr wave, although for some reason I couldn't find any Palpatines. They also have unleashed figs and the 12" Jango.

Hey everybody,
If you're looking for a Playskool "Arena Adventures" set, they have 2-3 more of them at the Redmond Town Center (Or "Centre", or whatever they're calling it these days) KB Toys. I bought mine at 5:30 pm.

Just got back from checking the Renton Walmart on my lunch break. Nothing too new there. Tons of the Bespin wave and the Orn Free wave. Still no sign of the Acklay.

Not sure if anyone is interested but they did have some of the new Masters of the Universe figures. After I bought one of each figure there were still one or two of each left.

He-Man (cross version + Battle Sound)
Skeletor (regular + Battle Sound)
Beast Man
Man-At-Arms
Stratos

They also had tons of Battle Cat although I didn't pick him up. Prices are $7.77 for the regular, $11.77 for the Deluxe which come with an original cartoon from the series. Like I said, not sure if anyone cares but I thought I would post. The figures look great.

Happy hunting.

Made a few stops this morning around some South End stores. Here is what I found:

Auburn Wal-Mart: Bespin and Orn Free wave in abundance along with some Chewy, Han, Obis.

Federal Way Wal-Mart: Nothing new

Federal Way Toys R Us: Nothing new

Federal Way Target: Nothing new (Target hasn't had anything new since what seems like the Reagan administration)

Sea Tac Mall KB: Nothing new

Kent Kmart: Figures on sale for about $3.50, had Bespin wave.

Found the new Deluxe C-3PO with Battle Droid at the Lynnwood Target today. No Deluxe Yodas on sight though.

Happy Hunting!

This morning I found the deluxe C-3PO and Yoda figures at Target in Woodinville. As of 9am they had six or seven of each.

The Targets in both Woodinville and Lynnwood have cleared shelf space under Reek with a "Beast" tag, presumably for Acklay. Keep your fingers crossed.

Target in Woodinville has three Action Fleet sets (Ronto, Dewback and AT-AT). Does anyone collect them?

TRU in Bellevue finally has Chewie, Han and Obi Wan.

TRU in Lynnwood has those plus Djas Puhr and Palpatine.

TRU and Walmart in Lynnwood have the unleashed figures. Anyone collecting them?

Happy Hunting!

Nothing at the TRU though, as usual.

Hey Wampa--I've felt the same for awhile about the Southcenter Target. Does their ordering suck, or is it just heavily scalped? The eternal question...

Anyway,
if anybody's looking for the Playskool Falcon set, they had 6 left at the Alderwood (Lynnwood) Mall KBToys about an hour before closing. They had a ton of the Obi Pilot wave, and I also spotted at least three Palpatines. The Lynnwood Target had a few of each of the Action Fleet ships, but absolutely nothing else worthwhile.
Good Luck!

<font size="2" face="arial">I think it's heavily scalped. All other Target's in the Puget Sound get new stuff so their Distribution Center has it. I remember when the POTJ figures went on clearance there were about 50+ one evening and the next there were 2. I would have thought they sent them to another store but they still had some so someone picked them all up.

Found over 40 of the two packs at the downtown Kent K-Mart today. The cost is 9 dollars. The are located at the end of the Star Wars aisle. The best one was Yoda and a Clone Trooper. I also picked up Djas Puhr there as well. The best part about K-Mart is they are running a Buy one at regular price and get the second one at half price. Also just in case you hadn't noticed that Episode 2 is showing at the Midway Drive in Auburn with Spy Kids 2. My wife and I went last night and it was pretty packed.

Greetings all.

Seems like it's been forever since I've seen anything new but stumbled across the Cantina sets at the Renton Walmart this afternoon. They have them all.

I didn't pick any up so I can't give anyone a rating on 'em. They looked great but I'm opting not to buy as the figures look like reissues of past figures-minus the bar. Hope that helps.

If anyone sees an Acklay or any new basic figs please post. It's like the Sahara desert out there, I know.

Thanks Servicestop!

I went by there this morning on my way to work and they hadn't put anything new out yet. But when I saw your post I stopped on the way home and picked up Ponda and Hammerhead. The glasses that come with the figures are small but it will make a nice diorama.
Also Ponda has a removeable arm and articulated knees.

They had 2-3 of each left but I figured I'd wait on Greedo to spread out the cost. He's just a repaint with darker green skin and a darker orange vest.

Lynnwood Walmart had at least 4 each of Ki-Adi, Teemto, and Djas Puhr, if anybody still needs these guys...This was an hour ago, but beware--if you go through the "garden area" checkout, you might have to wait forever. The cashier is super-slow and chatty.

Just returned from the Kent Freddies. If anyone is interested in a 12 inch Destroyer Droid I hid it on the bottom shelf on the left hand side of the display of SW figures at the end of the aisle. There is also a 12 in Jango Fett as well. The Destroyer looks pretty cool and if I were a collector of 12in figures I would probably get it (21.99) if I hadn't just gotten in a accident today. images/icons/mad.gif images/icons/mad.gif images/icons/mad.gif images/icons/mad.gif

The Southcenter and Factoria Targets had the second wave of the Action Fleet series (AT-TE, Solar Sailer, Naboo Fighter).

Other than that, it's as dry as the Sahara from Lynnwood to Southcenter (sigh).

I found all of the new waves, minus Watto and Endor Soldier at Lynnwood KB. I did talk to my parents today, and they picked up the 1st six Star Tours figures today in Florida.

You can get the Star Tours figures for $10 each, plus $10.95 shipping by calling 407-363-6200.

I ordered all 6 currently available, and they are shipping the first wave. The second wave was back-ordered until December/January, but they will be shipped free of charge. When asked about the last third wave, they had no idea as to when they would be getting them in.

Currently, the only way to find Lott Dodd is at a KB toys. I'd keep checking every Monday, as that's when they get new stock in. He's only 1 to a case now, so he goes quick.

Though it's far for alot of folks on here, the Everett K-Mart had at least four more Geonosian Arenas this evening...If you call ahead, they'll hold it at customer service for you---just prepare to be on hold for awhile. Even though it's five bucks more at K-Mart, it was worth it--I had ordered it on Amazon a couple weeks ago, didn't want to wait 'til November, and cancelled the order. Then, I ordered it on Walmart.com, but today I got a "backordered" notice from them. So, if you're as impatient as I am, go to the K-Mart.

Many new finds in Kent and Southcenter. I found two Geonosian Arenas sets at Toy's r us and a Gunship although the box was busted up on one corner. It looked as if TRU had just restocked this morning as all the pegs were full. images/icons/shocked.gif
At the Kent BIG K I found one a taking Jango and Obi Wan. I can't remember what they were called specicially but they were 12'inch figures that are supposed to interact with each other. Also there are several 12 in regular figures at the end of the first aisle.

Hey Everybody...A brief Lynnwood survey--KB Toyworks had nothing of note this evening, unless you're looking for the red and yellow 12" clones, which they had several of each. Lynnwood TRU had about 4 gunships, all the TRU exclusives from the past couple months (Mace, Landspeeder, Luke/TaunTaun, X-Wing) , a couple sets of Action Fleet Wave 2, and Tatooine Ani and Sith Training Maul. The figure set-up was pretty sparse, which either means that they had newer waves and sold through them, or they'll be restocking soon.

Well I will give credit where credit is due TRU's advertisement got me in the door. Only to find that all the DVD's had been taken by 2pm images/icons/shocked.gif .

I ordered Clones and LOTR Extended Version from them last Tuesday and I recieved emails that LOTR was sent on Thursday (still not here images/icons/blush.gif ) and my clones was shipped today. I thought the whole idea of purchasing them online was that you wouldn't have to go to the store and search for them.

I have a request from any/all of you:

Do any of you know where to find the Playskool sets?
I am looking for the Falcon and Reek sets for my son for Christmas but can't find them anywhere. He is almost 3 and a HUGE Star Wars fan. He has seen the trilogy 15+ times each and knows all of the characters. I've seen the Falcon at KB but they are gone and no shelf space anymore.

HELP!!

Target - No
WalMart - No
TRU - They didn't even know what they were (some 'toy' store)
JC Penney - not anymore

HELP!!!
HELP!!

For the Playskool items, check KB toys. I think the Redmond one might still have some.

Thanks to both of you. Any help on where you see these sets would be appreciated. My son has the others and was just lining all of the figures up on the table last night.

He hasn't seen EpII yet, but we just got a DVD player last night so he will see it this weekend. Just from looking at the displays in stores, he knows Anakin, Padme, Obi-Wan etc. and, of course, all of the characters from the original triliogy.

The K-B in the SuperMall had about 10 of the falcon playsets yesterday afternoon. I didn't see the reek but it may have been there. They also had a couple clone pilots. No Ephant, however. Also, the Kent Target had all accessory sets as well as Deluxe Geonosian.

Great, thanks for the info on the Falcon playset. I might head on down there today if I am able to get off of work early.

Also, I bought a couple of trooper builder sets at the WOTC in Southcenter yesterday ($6.99) and the DVD of Hardware Wars for $1.99.

Speaking of Hardware Wars, now there's a half hour of my life that I'll never get back. I think I felt my brain cells committing suicide in rebellion to watching that. images/icons/shocked.gif images/icons/frown.gif images/icons/rolleyes.gif

Cafortier,
I haven't seen any evidence of the Holiday Editions at any of the local Wal-Marts I've been to in the past couple days, and I've hit the Supermall WM, Seatac WM (had to pick a friend up from the airport), and the Lynnwood WM. No shelf tags, no conspicuously empty pegs. Ditto for the 12" Bounty Hunter Wave .
good luck, everybody!

Well, I got the C-3PO/R2-D2 Holiday 2-Pack, but only through sheer luck.

I was purchasing some deoderant at the Lynnwood Walmart, when I look down next to the cashier's register, and lo and behold, sitting there was the sought after item!

I asked her about it, and she said I could have it - must have been a parent who thought it cost too much.

I asked her if she had seen more go by, and she said yes, quite a few, and that she even sold 4 to one guy (scalper?).

Moral of the story is that you're going to have to be vigilant to get one of these - they fly out of the store as soon as they come in. Oh, and just for added fun, there's no little yellow UPC price sticker on the shelves to even let you know they've been here before.

Anyone seen the Trash Compactor scenes at Walmart?

EddieU
12-09-2002, 05:01 PM
Well, the Trash Compactor sets have made their way to the Seattle Area...Since I took a sick day today (note the difference between "sick day" and "actually being sick"), I decided to give the Lynnwood WalMart a shot. I've been checking all the store reports in Arizona, Denver, and California, and when I saw that somebody in the Bay Area had gotten the Trash sets, I figured that Seattle would get them today. I was right, but just as I was walking down the aisle to the SW section, I saw a horrifying sight--some guy standing in front of the SW stuff, arms full of Trash Compactor sets and the some other SW! As I got closer, I saw that he had a whole case in his hands--2 of each set. I instantly recognized him as a guy I'd seen last week at Walmart, who was buying up multiple Zuckusses...He put a Leia/Chewie set down, presumably to re-adjust his stack, and I grabbed it. At this point, I was annoyed that he was taking more than one of something brand new, but hadn't labelled him a scalper just yet. So much for giving him the benefit of the doubt!
Since I desperately wanted Han and Luke to make my Trash Compactor (and Dianoga) complete, I got in the car and drove to the next closest Walmart, up in Maryville...As I drew closer to the toy section, who do I see? Sam Scalper, arms full of the Zuckuss Wave and Ephant Mon. It didn't look like there were any Trash sets there, so I wandered down the non-SW action figure aisle. Lo and behold, right under the Spidey figures, were some of the Holiday Threepios and Artoos! I picked one up and left three there. Sadly, the Scalper Saga continued...When he saw me in line with the Holiday set, he made a beeline back for the toys, undoubtedly hoping to find more ebay fodder. So after all that long-windedness, yes, the Trash Compactor sets have arrived. Why, though, are Chewie's legs unarticulated?
Good Luck fighting rude moms and scalpers,
Eddie

That trash compactor story makes me so sick that I want to hurl. Especially as I was planning on going up to Lynnwood tomorrow because I couldn't make it this morning. images/icons/frown.gif What time did all of this take place, so I know to go earlier than this slime the next time I venture to Walmart?

On the plus side, the Redmond KB got in a whole bunch of Clone Trooper Pilots, Destroyer Droids but fewer Yoda High Councils. They're in the back, so ask for them.

EddieU
12-09-2002, 06:36 PM
It happened around 11:45 am...Hopefully, the sets will start showing up soon @TRU or Target, since they're not a Wal-Mart exclusive anymore.

Good Luck fighting rude moms and scalpers,
Eddie<font size="2" face="arial">I don't wish to start a fight on the boards, but since I appear to have been labeled a "scalper", here are the facts:
1. I buy two of each. Always have. I have traded some items for other Star Wars stuff. I have never sold any Star Wars toy for profit.
2. Last week I found ONE Zuckuss and ONE Dengar at the Lynnwood Walmart. I bought the Zuckuss, left the Dengar.
3. Today, I found 2 each of the Trash Compacter sets at the Lynnwood Walmart; I bought 2 of the Han/Luke and 1 of the Leia/Chewie as someone else bought the other one.
4. Then went up to Marysville Walmart. Bought 2 Imperial Officers and 1 Zuckuss and 1 Ephant Mon. Never saw any Holiday sets - either being bought or on the shelf.
5. So I went to Mount Vernon Walmart in the hope of finding Holiday sets. Got a Dengar and 2 Holiday Sets and 1 Leia/Chewie Trash Compactor. There were about 9 of the Holiday sets after I left, all in the Star Wars toy section.

Those are the facts, for those that are interested.

I just talked with a salesperson about the Star Wars toy at the Lynnwood store, as it's been as dry as a desert for some time.

That was a pretty entertaining back and forth up there. I suppose all of the confusion could have been avoided if you guys had just spoken in the aisle at the store. I know if I had seen somebody at two stores during a toy search it would have been a great conversation starter.

(That's where I met Eddie at TRU and then a Wal Mart.)

I always try to talk to fellow collectors in the aisles and I also always make it a point to talk to people I suspect to be toy scalpers. Admittedly, I probably would have taken Eddie's original stance seeing someone buying multiples at 2 stores....but I would have asked the reason at the store. I'm nosy like that. images/icons/smile.gif

So hopefully if I ever run into one of you fellow collectors out there, we can talk and identify ourselves.

I believe Josh's first words to me on April 23 were "What are you, some ebay guy?" images/icons/tongue.gif I was as horrified as poor quagmire probably was when he read my saber-rattling post. I believe that we also coined a pretty good term for the "Hot Wheels" scalpers while waiting for Walmart to open on 4/23: "Hot Weasels".

I saw the same people at TRU and WalMart that day, a day that was full of sprinting "Hot Weasels". I see those same guys at my Target if I ever go on a Sat. or Sun. morning. The Target employees make fun of them whenever they walk by.

I went to Bellevue for the midnight madness. There were a couple scalpers/hoarders there. Then went to Lynnwood TRU to get the rest of the figures that Bellevue was missing. Then hit Wal-Mart to get the discounted Beasts and vehicles. I saw the same people at all locations. Most of them regular collectors like myself.

Another disappointing morning in the North...

Lynnwood Wal-Mart still has the same 12 figures they've had all week--10 Luminaras, 1 Ki-Adi, 1 Lott Dodd. Not only is that it for SW (outside of Lightsabers and some Action Fleet), but the space taken up by SW stuff has been slashed to almost nothing--in its place is Transformers stuff. No new Lego sets there, either...

Lynnwood TRU had nothing of note--same ol' figures and exclusives.

Lynnwood KBToyworks had nothing spectacular, either.

WampaTaunTaun, are you still looking for the Playskool Arena set?

I saw a Arena playset (playskool) at the Toyworks at the Supermall. You might want to call though and make sure they still have it. They may be able to hold it for you. I'll keep my eyes open.

Is anyone else feeling a little burned out with collecting? Maybe it's because there isn't anything new hitting the stores that really appeals to me. I still have never seen Ephant Mon and the Christmas set probably won't turn up until Valentine's Day.

I totally forgot about the "Hot Weasels" name for all these scraggly looking guys that were sitting around a Wal Mart waiting for it to open so they could run to the toy aisle.

You know, I had also forgotten that I thought you were a scalper the first time I saw you Eddie. Now that I think about it, it was just that you knew all the variations of cases that would be out before we ever went into the store and which figures would be short-packed and such. In fact....didn't you have a list you were passing around? As it turns out it was from this site, which you actually told me about. Turned out to be my favorite website and now I'm here every day practically.

Of course I apologize for my mistake.....as I do in advance to any of you I ever run into out there and mistake you for one like Eddie did the other day. It's just reflexes.... images/icons/smile.gif

I really shouldn't even be checking this forum, as I'm not supposed to be buying presents for myself until after next week, but I keep hoping someone came upon the motherload of army builders somewhere (or maybe that red battledroid) and I can go grab a few.

Sigh. Sounds like everyone is having as slow a time as me right now though. You'd think stores would be restocking every day, but I guess not.

Dang...and here I am up in Redmond. I'm sure by the time I drove down there they'd be ALL gone.

The new Redmond Fred Meyers had Acklays for $10!

Happy Hunting!
