Howdy All!!
Been off the boards for a while-sorry! images/icons/frown.gif Anyhoo, here's what I found. Tukwila Target had some Clone Wars stuff. The Jedi Starfighter and the Tank but no figures except the destroyer droid launcher. KB in Southcenter had a Leia in the new packaging but nothing else. So new product is getting out, but dissapearing fast. If it makes you all feel better, Minneapolis and Detroit are wastelands as well.

See Ya in the aisles!

Was the 12" Lando Skiff hard to find for you guys? That is if you collect the 12" line.

Snagged the last clones at Fred Myer in Redmond last night, then went to a BBQ in Seattle....where I happened to check the Fred Myer in Lake City. They had 1 set of Blue Clones there too.

Good luck!

I never found the 12" Lando or anyone in that wave yet.

Actually, I haven't seen any new 12" guys since the Dengar and Imperial officer wave.

Redmond Target had one Red Battle Droid this morning, and one Darth Maul. That was it.

The Redmond Target had the Luke/Vader Throne duel wave, including Hoth Han/Mynock Chewie.

This wave had the correct handed Luke!

Okay, update to my not having found any '03 figs yet: I bought the last Darth Vader(TRD) and Snowtrooper(TBOH) at the Woodinville Target Monday night. The single employee who was in position to check the store's "wharehouse"(do you call it?) was unwilling to re-stock the pegs, and didn't even let on as to wether or not there were even any more Star Wars fig cases at the store.
I tried to understand why she couldn't bring any out, after she told me they were a collector's item, and others need to have a chance at them, too. Even if I was one of the collectors who finally had my chance coming to me! images/icons/tongue.gif

Dogdude, I share your lack of understanding of Target's "logic". That's why I'd rather spend my cash at TRU and KB, where I've experienced much more helpful employees. Target's whole "collector's item" stance towards SW stuff is idiotic. Really, you could say that just about ANYTHING is a "collector's item".

Stopped by the Lynnwood KB Toyworks around 6:30pm, but sadly, couldn't post 'til now. Here's the scoop:

-They had 4 TIE's, but every single box was crushed on the 'window' portion of the box. I bought one.

-Josh, remember how you said in another thread that if you could find 1.99 clones, you'd buy a cartful? Well, how about 2.99 clones? They literally had at least three dozen of these rapidly-yellowing bad boys.

-if anybody buys Marvel Legends, they had the old wave with Capt. America and Iron Man...They also had The Thing in his trenchcoat, which I left there. The bad news is, for some sick reason, they're charging 9.99 for these figures there. Ouch!

Anyway, good luck!
Eddie

p.s.--Checked the Lynnwood TRU on my way to work this morning--still nothing, and they moved the SW section again. I really want one of those Jedi 3-packs.

Report: Burlington Target had one each of the Jedi 3-pack and the blue clone 3-packs as of 10 am this morning. I'm not interested in those so I left them. Burlington KB had zero TIE fighters. Burlington Wal-Mart doesn't even have pegs for Star Wars anymore - but they do have all the 12" bounty hunter wave and 4" cantina figs. on clearance. Good luck in the hunt, but watch out for a Canadian scalper with bad B.O. who comes down once every week or so to buy up as many Star Wars figures as he can (also Hot Wheels). He hits every store from Bellingham to Lynnwood, maybe even further South. This guy is the main reason why the Y-Wings were so hard to find at Target a few years back. Anyone remember??? Well, that's my spy report for the day - bye for now images/icons/wink.gif

Hey guys, I just wanted to inform you all about a thread going in the saga section. It is a fan poll for figures you want to see made. Some of you may have seen the thread, others may not have. I really think you should all vote because these may be the figures you will be picking up towards the end of next year. Please go and give your input. Thanks

Hey Zepp-Head,thanks for keeping your eyes peeled!

I scored at the Everett TRU today--they had 8 green clone 3-packs, and 2 Jedi Knight Army 3-packs. I got one of each, so there were a bunch of green clones left. I wouldn't bet on the Jedi's lasting that long, but it's worth calling them and asking them to hold them for you. I was there at 10:30am.

Oh yeah, they also had a few Lando 12" in stock--Josh, as per your post above,I had one held for you, if you don't have it yet. E-mail me for the ridiculous secret code name they're holding it under--eddie@drizzle.com

Good luck!

I lucked out by going out for lunch and then hitting the TRU at Everett Mall. I got the last Jedi Knight Army, but there were about 5 Clone Trooper Army's left. This Clone Trooper pack has one green trooper and one holding binoculars (or the Star Wars equivalent). This was at 12:15.

Eddie,
The last time I saw him outside of a store, he was getting into a gold Mazda I think. But that was a while ago. He is dark-complected - actually...come to think of it...he looks a little like Sadaam Hussein without the mustache. heh heh. images/icons/grin.gif
I could be wrong about him buying up all the Y-wings - all I know is, I saw him walking out of the Burlington Target with a cartful of them. I went in and found ONE left and it was in a badly smashed box. I bought it anyway and checked that Target daily, hoping for a restock in a better box...but found nothing. And I checked Bellingham, Everett, and Lynnwood as often as possible over the next few weeks but never saw the Y-Wing again. Did any of you guys further South have better luck?

FYI,

The Target exclusive A-Wing and Leia on Speeder Bike are Web-only items!

At least that's what the Target.com web site says and the listing for the Jedi Starfighter does not say so.

They do charge tax + shipping/handling...

Went to the two TRGus in my area (Federal Way & Tukwila - Southcenter) and couldn't believe my eyes as I had to search for the Star Wars section. If you could really call it that. The Federal Way one had a very small assortment of new things ie the battle ship. But the Southcenter one was almost non-existant. It maybe had two pegs of old figures. I almost broke down and cried! images/icons/mad.gif

Major finds for me today at the Renton Wal-Mart and Factoria Target. images/icons/grin.gif images/icons/grin.gif images/icons/grin.gif

Renton Wal-Mart had the Tyranus/Obi-Wan wave with other stuff mixed in. Picked up the new Vader-Throne room duel and Boba Fett-Pit of Carkoon. They still had plenty of Chewie-Mynock hunt and Han-Hoth(blue coat)there this morning.

Factoria Target was a gold mine for me. Here's the finds... images/icons/shocked.gif
-Coleman Trebor
-SP-4 and JN-66
-Lama Su and Clone Youth
-Ashla and Jempa
-Tusken Raider, Tatooine Camp Ambush
-Padme, Droid Factory Chase
Lots of stuff still left, Red Battle Droids (3 or 4), a Teebo (left him 'cause I already had him from POTJ) Han-Hoth, Chewie-Mynock, Rebel Fleet Trooper, Imperial Officer, and the rest of the usual suspects.

Felt good to finally find new product out there. I hope this post helps some of you out.

Sorry this is late but last night the Kent Target had filled their pegs. Lama Su, Rebel Trooper (both), red battle droids, Padme Factory Chase, Teebo, Eeth Koth, Imperial Officer (blonde), Snowtrooper, Chewy, and Han Hoth.

No 3 packs of any kind- don't think I will ever see one of those images/icons/frown.gif , and no Coleman wave.

Is anyone here a fan club member, signing up for the Holiday Yoda lightspeed pass or is going to be ordering one?

I want one, but have no interest in joining the fan club. They say that non-club members may be able to get one by October, if any are left... I'd really like to be guaranteed one.

If you'd be willing to pick one up for me (I'll pay for it), I'd be willing to pick up something that you want that I find along my journeys (you pay for it).

If you're willing, please private message me.

It seems that the screen scenes have not made an appearance (Except the ONE time at Target) anywhere south of Lynnwood yet.

If anyone around the eastside gets extra ones before I do, maybe you can pick em up and PM me. We can meet somewhere or something. Local trading seems to work well. Besides, if you save your receipt, you're always safe. images/icons/smile.gif

Speaking of which, I have found blue clones 2 or 3 times, but I have yet to find Green Clones or White Clones. Otherwise my army is going to be full of lieutenants

Anyone wanna trade set for set with me? I can meet you at your favorite TRU, Kaybee or Target sometime.

Redmond Target has a TON of new figures. The pegs are actually full for once. The Hoth Han, Boba Fett, Anakin secret ceremony, plus some clone lieutenants of all things.....

They also had a Clone Wars droid builder pack and I think the stupid Destroyer launcher.

Saturday Morning hunts:

Lynnwood Target: 2 Anakin CW, 2 Yoda CW, and the wave with Padme DFC, Lama Su, etc. . Also a bunch of red clones and red BD's.

Lynnwood Walmart: No CW value packs (Chris, if I see 'em, I'll grab you an extra set), but 6 pegs full of that Anakin SC/Han Hoth/Mynock Chewie wave. A bunch of red clones there, too. Also, one each of the Luke and Vader "hanging box" sabers.

Everett Target: I got the last two wave 2 Screen scenes. Another collector, nice guy, was there a couple minutes before me, and had a set also. A few pegs filled with the Anakin SC/Han Hoth case, and a few headless Tuskens and red BD's.

I'm not a Hasbro basher, but if those re-issued red clones had been plain white clones, they'd be flying off the shelves. It's hard to pay 5 bucks for something that KayBee has had (off and on) the past couple months for 1.99.

Some of the plastic bubbles were slightly dinged.

Part 2:

Lynnwood TRU-As of 9:45am, they had 4 Hoth 4-packs--all "broken-horned".

Northgate TRU-Nothing, as usual. Bounty Hunter 4-packs aplenty.

Northgate Target-Score! They had 4 each of the Geo. War Room 2/Jedi Council 2 sets, all the Clone Wars vehicles (though I think I got the last Hailfire Droid), including a couple Geonosian fighters, a healthy selection of all 3 Clone Wars figures, and some early 2003 Saga figures (Padme, Tuskens, Fleet Trooper, etc. ).

Good Luck!

I just returned both my Jedi Council Screen Scenes (#1&2)to the Kent target. If you're looking for them, I decided that $40 was too much for the sets so you can pick up both versions there.

Hello everyone!

Well I've been a lurker here for too long and decided to set up an account. I'm a collector in the Puyallup/Federal Way area and would be more than happy to post my finds and/or wants. There's two other Star Wars fan sites that I post on, which is probably why I stalled on setting up a log in on this one -- too many accounts to manage.

Anyway, on a regular basis I scope out Target, Wal-Mart, TRU, Fred Meyers, and K-Mart in both Puyallup and Federal Way for any new stuff. Federal Way seems to get stuff in sooner for some reason.

The latest finds I saw were the new Clone Wars bonus packs at the Wal-Mart in Fed Way (hiding near the Hot Wheels) and the new cinema scenes at the Puyallup Target. I'm currently searching for any of the clone 3 packs that are green, yellow, or red.

Good to see so many people posting that are in the Seattle area. The other boards I visit don't seem to have as many as are here.

Cheers!

EddieU
09-23-2003, 08:54 PM
Welcome aboard, Doctor!

As of 6:30 pm, the Lynnwood TRU was crawling with Hoth 4-packs, some Bounty Hunter 4-packs, and the assortment with the ROTJ Luke, Vader, and Boba, the red clonetrooper, and the snowtrooper.

Good Luck!

Welcome Doctor!

Always good to have good hearted collectors join the rest of the "Scum" here.

Nice to here you do scouting for others. I try to do it myself but I'm usually not in one spot for very long (I fly for Northwest images/icons/shocked.gif ) or everyone gets to the goods before me (My bad luck images/icons/rolleyes.gif ).

I just recently got off of collecting probation from my wife a couple of weeks ago so I may be in the position to do a little business with you.

Oh Yeah, a bit of wisdom to keep out of probation:
Don't have a 3'X4' box from FAO Schwartz show up on your front doorstep while you're away for 2 &1/2 months for training and let your beloved discover it along with the $130 dollar credit card bill for it. Or at least make sure the next charge is to the flower store! images/icons/grin.gif

Yeah, I got mine at the Everett TRU a month or so ago, and I haven't seen them anywhere since. It seemed like the different Clone 3-packs were shipping consecutively (White, Blue, Green) one or two weeks apart to TRU, but that regularity stopped awhile back.

Thanks for the heads up. I guess I haven't been at the right place at the right time. The TRU in Puyallup and Fed Way seem to have gotten in one shipment of clone wars 3 packs and never restocked. I haven't seen anything new in over a month and a half.

The Fed Way TRU did have the Anakin and Count D. Speeder bikes in. I never thought I'd see these at retail.

Is there anything specific that anyone is looking for? I'd be happy to make some trades with local collectors if I find anything anyone needs.

Good hint about shipping. That's why anything more than single figures I usually have shipped to work. Easier to hide and sneak in the house later. images/icons/wink.gif

Stopped by K-Mart and Fred Meyers last night in Puyallup. K-Mart had nothing. Fred Meyers had one blue clone 3 pack but it looked as though the bubble had been stepped on. I'm starting to assume that the green clone 3 pack hasn't made an appearance here yet.

The Federal Way Target had a full set of all 4 Screen Scenes.

I checked all the Targets and TRU's from South Center to Tacoma (I had other errands to run at the same time today) and none had any new Clone Wars stuff. In fact, the South Center Target had 16 Droid Launcher packs and that's it. I'm begining to think that the south end is getting the short end of the stick when it comes to the colored clone trooper multi-packs. I wonder if Hasbro will wise up and start sending out waves of nothing but the various colored clone trooper 3 packs.

I just hit the Lynnwood Walmart a couple minutes after opening...Nothing of note--I canvassed every aisle looking for the Value packs. The only 2003 figures left there are a Hoth Han and SC Anakin--other than that, the SAME Watto and Lott Dod figures that I've been harping about for 9 months are still there. They are my mortal enemies.

As far as the Lynnwood Walmart goes, there should be an "Abandon hope, all ye who enter" sign above the entrance. I just went in there yesterday afternoon, and they had 4 (single-carded) Clone Wars
Anakins--which tells me that they're either not getting the Value-packs in, or already have. A friend of mine in Cleveland picked me up one of each 2-pack, and that was a couple weeks ago. I have a bad feeling that they're all done shipping. I haven't seen a new clone 3-pack around here in a lonnnnng time.

Hey boys, here's my morning report:

Lynnwood TRU: Tons of single-carded CW figures (Ani, Yoda, ARC), about 2 of each Cinema Scene, and the Luke/Obi/Sidious Unleashed wave ,which I was surprised to see again. I grabbed an Obi-Wan and Sidious; there were about 2 of each left. This was a half-hour ago. When I pulled into the parking lot, the "Hot Weasels" were all congregated around their cars and trucks, visions of inflated "Buy-it-now" listings dancing in their heads. Can anybody explain to me why you'd need a monstrous Ford F-350 to scalp toys??

Lynnwood Mall KBToys-Weirdly enough, not open as of 10:05 am. What's that about?

Lynnwood KB ToyWorks-Nothing super-spectacular. Of course, I was hoping for some Clone 3-packs, CW value packs, or anything like that, but no. If you still need a TIE, they have 3 of them, and with the 30% off sale, it's not a bad deal. Oh, and they had at least four of the ultra-hot and in-demand Ep. I Darth Maul Lightsabers.

Report from Kent. The Kent Target has one each of the cinema scenes, four Hailfire droids, and 16 A-wings. They HAD one Geonosian fighter, but that is what I snagged.

Kent Fred Meyer had a Jedi army 3-pack and a blue clone 3-pack if anybody is still looking for the blue one.

Southcenter TRU had the Anakin/Dooku speeders and the bounty and Hoth 4-packs. Hoth one STILL broken horn version. Southcenter KB had nothing worth mentioning and I didn't get a chance to get to the Target there.

Ramm,

Well no luck in Portland with any of the new stuff. I checked Fred Meyers, KB, and TRU and none had much new stuff. Absolutely no stores had any Clone Wars 3 packs at all.

If I do come across an extra Spider Droid at FM, are you a MOMC collector or are you an opener?

I did a quick check of the toy stores at South Hill mall today and nothing new there either. I'm still searching for the green and yellow clone trooper 3 packs.

On a side note, I found a small toy store in Tigard, OR that had a bunch of hard to find Star Wars stuff -- both vintage and new. I scored an Eopie with Qui-Gon and a POTJ Y-Wing for a very fair price. Seemed like it might have been a private collection for sale as everything seemed to be just one of. Anyway, the store is just called "Toys" and their phone number is (503) 598-7386. Sadly, they had none of the clone wars multipacks I was looking for or the Spider Droid. But I did see the new deluxe Obi-Wan and Jango, as well as the Super Battle Droid builder.

Ramm

In case any of you don't know about the Toy Stable, here is some info. The store is in Spanaway. Lynne has said it is OK to post the phone #. (253) 537-7082. She has everything from vintage Star Wars to the newest Transformers. I have been a loyal customer of Lynne's for a while now, and figured maybe others should know of the shop.

The newer Unleashed tend go quick. I saw the Emporer/Obi-Wan/Luke Skywalker at the Bellevue TRU last week, but they were snatched within a day.

You're going to probably have to online/e-bay the others. TRU and KB are the only stores still actively carrying these.

EddieU
10-14-2003, 03:15 PM
Yeah, TRU seems to be your best bet. I've never seen the Vader/Leia wave (I'm hoping that the Leia is one of the Jedi Point Auctions), but I've seen every other Unleashed at TRU-especially at the Lynnwood one. They had the Luke/Sidious/Obi wave last week. I just picked up the Yoda/Han/Boba wave from DNS Toys (http://www.dnstoys.com) (who were at the Portland Comicon on Sunday)for 50 bucks-which is cheaper than TRU! They still have them in-stock on their site for 47.99, and from past experience, they have reasonable shipping.

p.s.-The Lynnwood KB was devoid of anything too exciting this morning.

10-14-2003, 04:36 PM
Alright, I just gave them a try. It was actually the same price as retail after you added shipping, which I can live with.

As of an hour and 15 minutes ago, here's what the deal was in Lynnwood:

KBToyworks: I grabbed the last of the yellow clone troopers. They still had a Jedi Army 3-pack, and it looked like an unopened case of SW Playskool sets. Sadly, No CW 2-packs. I've been practically staking out that KB for the last week.

TRU: Still alot of CW Basic figures, even a few ARC Troopers left. The only Unleashed there is Dooku. Plenty of Anakin/Dooku speederbikes, and 2 Geo. War Room 2 sets.

Good luck!

Dang it! I was at that exact KB last night and they had nothing! I bet they were waiting until after their 30% off sale to put the newer stuff out.

Ramm, got the Spider Droid for you. Send me a Private Message so we can meet up.

EddieU
10-15-2003, 02:57 PM
That's exactly what I was thinking, Zoltar. On Monday, I saw an employee stocking the Hot Wheels aisle, and asked him if they'd gotten any new SW on their Truck that day. He told me they had, but it was "buried" under other boxes. I asked if it would be out Tuesday, and he said he didn't think so. Ah well. At 14.99 for each multi-pack, it would have been nice to buy them while on sale!

Also, on a side note, I saw the "Hot Weasels" exiting the TRU as I was going in. One of them was pretty angry about something, and it sure sounded to me like he didn't find his latest "Treasure Hunt" or whatever. As they congregated around their souped-up Ford F-350 "Scalp-mobile", I noted how sad and ridiculous it was to see 50-60 year-old men raging about their bad luck in the TRU! I mean, we all might be disappointed occasionally when we come up empty-handed, but there's something slightly creepy about old men throwing such a fit in a public place. If I come up empty-handed, I'm just as pleasant to the employees as I am if I had made a major score. The point is,if there is one, that I hate the bad rap that guys like those give to us "adult collectors".

I only came across "Hot Weasels" once and it was a sad site to behold. Both we men in their 50's who looked like they hadn't bathed in a week -- dirty clothes and matted hair. Boy did they run to the toy section when the store was opened.

I did a quick search of KB, Target, and TRU in Fed Way today. Target was well stocked of the newer Clone Wars ships and vehicles and TRU seemed to get in some Screen Scenes, Ani and Dooku Speeder Bikes, and single Clone Wars figures. KB had nothing (as usual). What I was amazed at is that none of the stores had pegs labeled for the Clone Wars 3 packs. I wonder if they've decided not to order any more. I hope I don't have to resort to Scalper-Bay...er, I mean eBay.

Found Clone Wars Durge with Speeder Bike and Clone Trooper with Speeder bike today at K-Mart. And of course the prerequisite Droid Launcher Clone Wars pack.

I have in my possession an extra Clone Wars Jedi 3 pack and a Clone Trooper with Speeder Bike if anyone wants to trade for a Green or Yellow clone trooper 3 pack.

I gave up a long time ago on the Leia/Vader unleashed locally. I whined and complained to a Hasbro rep and got them from her.

I have the Durge swoop, Clone speeder bike and red clone pack. Durge is pretty iffy - I can't decide if I like him or not.

Asajj would be cooler if she had better articulation.

And as far as the Hot Wheels guys go - the guys around Alderwood for the most part are really nice guys. There are a couple bad apples but compared to other areas like Northgate or Everett, we have a nice, polite group of them in Lynnwood.

EddieU
10-17-2003, 01:37 PM
Well Nick, I definitely don't want to run into those Northgate or Everett guys, then. I'm picturing a bunch of guys out of "Mad Max", trampling people under their hobnail boots as they race towards the toys.

If anybody else needs the Obi/Luke/Sidious Unleashed, I had a set(in addition to the one I reported on) held @ the Lynnwood TRU last night for another forum member who turned out to already have them. PM me for the name they're held under.

Good luck,

I spotted the Deluxe Durge w/ Speeder Bike and Clone with Speeder Bike at the Fed Way TRU this morning.

Some of the other hard to find older singles were spotted at the Target across the parking lot. Ran into a Hot Weasel at Target who told me about a TRU employee who bought up all the clone 3 packs that morning. He was at TRU at opening and the employee came right out as the store was opening to put his stash in his car.

Even if that TRU has no such policy, it is worth letting the manager know. A disgruntled customer who approaches a manager in a professional manner can make some progress getting things changed.

Well I called the Tacoma TRU right after I read the above post on Friday and it appears someone snagged the last red clone trooper 3 pack.

I spotted this evening at the Benson Renton Fred Meyers the Clone Wars Jedi 3 pack and the new Saga Darth Maul. Both were hidden so I liberated them for the next shopper who needs them. It really urks me when someone hides stuff like this. If you can't afford it, leave it for those of us who can and need it for our collection.

That's great news about the signing taking place at the comic con. I actually know the guys who are putting on the show very well (Jim was the recipient of my 2nd Silver Boba ordered from the Fan Club). My wife and I are scheduled to volunteer this year and if it's anything like it was last year, it will be huge. 2400 people showed last year -- much more than were at the ones that take place at the Seattle Center.

I found a Silver Toy Fair Vader there last year for $125 and didn't pick it up. Wish I could go back in time and change my mind as now that seemed like a good deal.

Also, the sale at Target right now also applies to regular saga figures! Everett had the newest Concept Stormie/Bail Oragana wave, so I picked up both the Stormies (sorry!), Bail, Outlander Obi Wan and the Twilek chick. All rang up at $3.99!! BTW, upon seeing the concept Stormie close up, I have decided that this figure is indeed cool. Got a feeling a lot of the nay sayers will agree once they get their hands on one!

I picked up one, left the other. They also had a crap-load of the Luke/Emperor/ObiWan Unleased figs. I like that they're getting these in, cuz it means that they'll probably get the Han/Boba/Yoda wave, plus the next wave which is rumored to have Slave Leia again.

I know this isn't the trading post, but if there are any local collectors looking for an Aayla Secura, new Emperor, concept Stormtrooper, or the Jedi Knight clone wars 3 pack, I do have an extra of each. I am currently looking for the green clone trooper 3 pack and the red Arc Trooper.

I want Green Clones more than anything. Green is my favorite color, and so of COURSE that had to be the hardest to find one. I only have ONE so far dagnabbit.

Ok, I have a novel idea.

The yellow and blue ones are the only ones I have seen so far. The Toys R Us in Federal Way had some Clones on bikes and the Durge on bike. They had the second wave of clone wars figs too. Plenty of Ventress when I was there, a few Durge.

Still haven't found a red ARC...

The K-Mart in Tacoma off 74th had a glut of Durge with Speederbike, Clone Trooper with Speederbike, and all white clone trooper 3 packs. I found the clone trooper 3 packs hidden so I liberated them for any collector that comes by.

The good news is that if all white clone trooper 3 packs are shipping again, that means there is a chance of finding the other colors in decent numbers.

I myself picked up an all white clone 3 pack and a red 3 pack for trading for the green 3 pack. If I get no trade offers, I'll offer to sell these at cost to any local collector who needs them.

Puyallup Fred Meyers (Valley): Had Jedi 3 packs and Yellow Clone 3 packs but hidden above where the regular Star Wars toys are. I couldn't fit them all on the pegs, but tried to get some out in the open. The good news is that there is a sale where the 3 packs are $8 now instead of $10.

Got the last pack of green clones at TRU at lunch.
I'm going to go ahead and say "Halt" on my offer of anyone buying them for me at this point (unless you have some currently right or something images/icons/smile.gif ). I'm finally to the point where my green clone army is my biggest now, and that's what I wanted. images/icons/grin.gif

Open apology to all Seattle Star Wars collectors.

I have been involved in a bit of behavior at Target that reflects poorly upon all action figure collectors. Sometimes this can be expected from die casts guys but not us. I apologize.

Three Saturdays ago at the Lynnwood Target at open another guy and I were walking back to the SW section. They had the newest wave of Imp Dig /Concept Stormie etc figures and lots of them - about three cases worth. The other guy who I have never had trouble with blocked me from the section which is pretty easy for him as he is about 6'4". He was all elbows as he tore through the hooks getting his figures. He ended up getting only one of each but I told him there was no need to be rude about it as there was plenty for the two of us. I was pretty ticked by the rude behavior but kept it to myself.

Two Saturdays ago, he keeps trying to step in front of me as we walk back to the action aisle. I cannot tolerate rude behavior so as we got to the corner of the aisle I stepped in tight and cut him off and more or less gave him a weak hockey check into the video game display. He didn't say anything so I thought my point was across the rude behavior would be returned in kind. It was a rude move on my part but I thought that ended things evenly.

Today as we walk back there he is threatening to kick my butt all the way back to the aisle. I replied with basically "Whatever." He proceeds to get in my face yelling at me in the middle of the aisle with more threatening. I tell him that is toys and if he needs to do all that to be a man put up or shut up. He shoves me. I tell him he is a punk for getting all worked up over SW figures. He continues yelling shoves me again into HULK figures. I tell him to walk away over and over. More threatening on his part. Finally the only way I could get him to walk away and get out of my face is to act like I am going to call someone on my cell.

My point of all this is this:
1. I am not going to fight over toys
2. I am not going to get kicked out of Target for fighting over toys.
3. Anyone who does this is a punk.
4. I am sorry that these actions today relect poorly on all of the Seattle area action figure collectors as it can label all of us as punks.

I am sorry fellow Seattle collectors.

Docking bay thats cool sounds like he started it and you are right fighting over toys is silly. Me I probably would have punched him after he shoved me and gotten kicked out of the store if not arrested. Good job by staying calm. On to the reports I found Durge basic at Gig Harbor Target today.

He continues yelling shoves me again into HULK figures <font size="2" face="arial">I've heard these stories in Wuher's and other sections of the site from time to time, but never here in the Seattle thread. I've always thought they were bunk. Are you SERIOUS?

More importantly, Do you guys go for the Lynnwood target every Saturday at the same time? If so...let me know when. I want to be there next Saturday to see this. I'd suggest everyone from this thread do the same. Give anyone interested in hockey checking people for Star Wars toys a run for their money as we race down the aisles together. No longer will we hunt for toys....we'll go hunting for blood images/icons/grin.gif

Oh, and one piece of advice....next time he shoves you into the Hulk toys....come back swinging with some Hulk Hands on.....I bet they'd do some damage. images/icons/grin.gif

Grown men fighting over toys in Seattle. Now I've heard it all.

While I will stand up for myself, I do have a problem fighting over toys.

Yes, you will see me at least at open next Saturday at the Lynnwood Target - and maybe him as well. He is a semi-regular.

That truly is a sad tale. Good work at keeping calm.

The Super Mall Toyworks had some of the value packs and two red clone packs. They also had two clones w/ bikes and a Durge w/bike.

Sounds like you are both at fault. I have never fought over a toy. Some fat-*** one time tried to attack me and my nephew when TRU was selling Episode 1 toys. We were just standing there looking at all the toys when he tried to attack us. Well he learned a cold lesson. Guy with cart can really hurt your legs if he hits you hard enough. He sooned stopped trying to harrass everyone.

Fighting over a toy is like 2 two year old fighting over a toy truck. Grow up.

I found a deluxe Durge at Freddies last night. Not much else on this side of the water.

Redmond KB has lots and lots of clone wars 3 White Clone multipacks (proof that the older colors are shipping again). They've also got deluxe Durge and a few others.

Sorry for the late post, but they had 4 12" Leia on Speeder bikes (most were on the top shelf) at the Alderwood Mall Target and the 4" Bail Organa and Obi-Wan Outlander Club figures at the Everett Mall Target last night.

The Bellevue TRU was stocked for Black Friday.

They had the KB Lightsaber Bonus Packs, lots of 12" Tauntauns marked down to $31, Unleashed Luke/Emporer/Obi-Wan, a few Green Clones, Screen Scenes, Geonosian Fighters, Hailfire Droids and Anakin's Jedi Starfighter. Only the first wave of Clone Wars figures though.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I want to wish everyone in the area a safe and happy Thanksgiving. And for anyone who decides to go out and brave the crowds on Black Friday, watch out for Morons on the road and remember, they are just toys. Don't kill anyone over some rare variant or anything. images/icons/grin.gif

Since it is the season of giving. I will let you in on two little hot spots that I have recently found. 1st is the Target in Tacoma near Bellarmine Prepatory school. I have already gotten my hands on all three Younglings and Bail Organa. Also the KMart in DOWNTOWN Kent. I picked up two (one for keeping and one for opening) of the McQuarrie Concept Stormtroopers (left one) and would have had Durge if my wife hadn't dragged me to the women's clothing section as soon as we got there. (I saw one in a cart as we where walking to the toy section) images/icons/mad.gif She needless to say got a earfull.
But those two places have been gold mines for me and now since I have everything I need except the Durge and the Amadala Wedding figure I figured it would be a good time to cough up the spots.
Happy hunting and happy holiday.

PS is there anyone who is in the Seattle Star Wars Society? I haven't recieved a email about any meeting for a while. I'm not a memeber but I did attend one two years back and had a great time.

starwarsfreeksr,

I used to be a member of the SSWS, but never made it to any of the meetings (bad nights and I'm about an hour away). Their site hasn't been updated in almost a year and both costuming groups associated with them have seemed to become independent. I also heard that there was some in fighting between members so they may have just chosen to disband.

I can also attest to the Target in Tacoma. I've had good luck there as some of the figs seem to show up earlier there. I've only seen the single Durge once, but wedding Padme keeps showing up in the Puyallup/Federal Way area. If I find either, I can pick them up for you if you wish.

Found 2 power of the force speeder bikes at my walmart and no other figs. The star wars peg was covered in justice league.

They had Bail Organa, Obi-Wan nightclub, Twi'lek nightclub girl at the Everett Mall Target about an hour ago. Also A-wing fighters and 12" Leia on Speeder bike.

In case any of you missed the Clone Trooper bonus packs at Wal-Mart and KB, they are showing up at Fred Meyer now.

The SSWS is sort of dead right now. I haven't gotten any emails from them in months. When EP3 news starts trickling out, they'll probably start the group up again.

If you're interested in talking with some local fans....The Garrison Titan and Alpha Base costuming groups are still very much alive and kicking (Titan had 3 or 4 events in the past 30 days with a couple of toy drives scheduled for December). You can visit our boards which still have quite a bit of activity.

BTW...I'll be letting you all know when those toy drives are so you can all come out and donate something. The stores are on some of our routes anyway. images/icons/wink.gif

For those variation hunters, both versions of Elan are showing up in the stores. I've found both at Target and Wal-Mart.
