I couldn't find the old OC thread, so I started a new one. I was at the Costa Mesa Target(Harbor/Baker) at about 9:30 pm (wednesday nite). They had tons of new figs. If you get there at opening, you'll probably find, the flying R2-D2, Tatooine C3PO, Snowtrooper, Hoth Han, Emperor Throne Room Vader(w/removable helmet!!!), Emperor Throne Room Luke, Carkoon Boba, repackaged Kamino Escape Jango, Mynock Chewie, and a few other new figures.

I love the new Snowtrooper. Luke has the black glove on the wrong hand. Vader is nice too.

I came across duel Luke, Vader, recarded Jango and C-3po, hoth Han, Mynock Chewie and the new snowtrooper at Target in Orange. The one across from the mall of orange on Tustin Ave. I didn't pick them up because someday new force will send me this set. images/icons/frown.gif

I came across the entire new 12" line at TRU today in Tustin, CA. They had AT-ST driver, Han Solo and Lando. They also had lots of the imperial 4pack. No figures though. Finally, they did have the new blue Jedi Starfighter and the Trade Federation Tank in Clone Wars colors!

As far as figure space, it seems marvel statues is starting to take over more of star wars space!! images/icons/mad.gif

Yes, it's time to wake up and get searching. Saturday I found the new Bounty Hunter four-pack at the Tustin TRU. Then today I found Luke, Vader, et al. at Wal-Mart. It sure is nice to find something after such a long dryspell. But it would be even nicer if I could find figures without crushed bubbles!

Patty found the Jedi Luke/Snowtrooper wave at at WM today (up in Oxnard), and that Bounty Hunter set is hitting up here in the Valley as well now! But I might be down in Tustin this weekend, so hopefully I can loot your area as well! images/icons/tongue.gif Forget about finding anything without a dinged or crushed bubble though - I sure haven't in the last several months. I think that's just how Hasbro's making them now! images/icons/rolleyes.gif

Dropping you an e-mail too Jobe...

Its funny how you mention the bubbles were mostly crushed, I did some huntin' this weekend and ALL the figs came across had crushed bubbles but almost perfect cardbacks. Also, there seems to be some data entry errors going on at target cause when they tried to scan the new waves, it came out as 'no location' (and no price error) although they were on the shelves.

Btw, here's the result of my area finds:
LBC Area:

Target South St. - had remnants of wave 13
Target Atlantic - had remnants of wave 11,13 & clone wars multi-packs
Target Bellflower - none
Wallmart (LB town center) - had remnants of wave 11
Wallmart (Carson St-Lakewood) - none (i seriously think that the people that work there are scalpers)
Toys R Us Signal Hill - clone wars multi-packs & Vihicles. Imperial Forces & Ultimate Bounty

Cerritos:
Greatland Target - remnants of wave 13
Target Bloomfield - clone wars multi-packs
Toys R Us - Imperial Forces
Wallmart - wave 11,13 and clonewars multi-packs

Torrance:
Toys R Us and Target - nothing.

Gardena:
Target - clone wars multi-packs

At KBToys in the Mall of Orange they have the new TIE fighter ($29.99) and of course the pig guard. It's also a good place to pick up figure 4 packs or the 3 packs with lightsaber.

Just wish he was around the boards a little more... He and the Mrs. are getting ready to move into a new house pretty soon (just like we did last week).

At Target on Tustin Ave, they had the entire Anakin secret ceremony wave. This included, Darth Tyrannus, Anakin, Mace Windu (with knob on back), Padme (droid factory), Teebo, blond Imperial officer and red head rebel fleet trooper!

In the Target on 17th street in Orange. (next to the 55 & 5 fwy) they have the Jedi Council 1 screen scene that includes Mace, the snake jedi and short jedi with the big ears & eye patch. You guys know who I mean. It's pretty expensive at $19.99.

08-30-2003, 03:11 AM
HB TRU has/had the 2 new screen scenes x2. Plus a few newer fgures. Also on Wednesday, Target on Harbor/Baker had Hoth Han Mynock Chewie and about 4 Carkoon Bobas.

I agree at $20 a set, seems a little expensive. I have seen these in stores about 3 different times and have passed on buying them. The quality of the figures doesn't look to be at the same level as the regular basic figures. Mace looks awful and the other 2 Jedi don't look too good either, and I don't even want to get into the "War Room" set.

Master_Phruby
09-03-2003, 02:16 PM
I found the Geonosian War Room (Poggle the Lesser, San Hill, Count Dooku) and Jedi Council (Mace Windu, Even Piell, Oppo Rancisis) at TRU in the Tustin Marketplace on Jamboree. They were $21.99 each! Can you believe that? What a rip!

The Target at the Tustin Marketplace had the super battle droid maker set for $4.97. They also had two more hoth accessory sets for that price.

Both places had all of the new packaged lightsabers, clone war star fighters and republic gunships.

Hi everybody! I went to a new Target and TRU today for my daily hunt. These two stores are right next to each other in Anaheim Hills. They are on Santa Ana Canyon. Right off from Weir Canyon and the 91. The Target had the entire Anakin (secret ceremony), hoth han, chewie, Darth Tyrannus, spear chucker Obiwan and some other ones. They also had about a dozen each of 12" Count Dooku, Zam, and Super Battle droids for $9.88 each. Not a bad price. I wonder if they will go down.

The TRU next door had six Ultimate Bounty sets. They also had the repackaged lightsabers and lots of 12" Dengar, Genosians and dolls from their respect waves. I'm going to have to check there more often.

Target in CM (Harbor/Baker) had the Yaddle and Nute screen scenes. I bought the jedi set for Yaddle, after opening it I realized, its just another repainted Ep1 Yoda, Oh well. They also had Hoth Han, Mynock Chewie, decapatated Tusken Raider, Imperial Officer. No new Clone wars 3 packs.

Hey, deepfriedhushpuppie whats the Orange County Star Wars Society, is it a club of some sort?

thanks to phruby, i am the proud new owner of an arc trooper. i really got to like this figure when i saw it in person at comic-con.

the target in orange off tustin ave is the place. it looks as if our dry spell is finally coming to an end in orange county. my wife reported also of a yoda and anakin still around too.

on other related news, 3 saga tie fighters with pilot in tie-shaped box were seen last night in k-b inside main place mall in santa ana, $29.99 each. a little pricey for me, but hey some of you may dig it.

good hunting!

****hey J3... i pm'd you the info on the ocsws.

Your welcome deepfriedhushpuppie. Those saga tie fighters have been there for a long time. I just can't bring myself to buy one. I think I need to get the pig guard first. I'd buy it but my wife has banded anymore 12" SW dolls. images/icons/frown.gif Of course, there is lots of room in my work office though. images/icons/wink.gif


Anyway, send me some info on the Orange County Star Wars Society.

Today I checked out the TRU and Target in Tustin Marketplace. They had a big zero on new items. TRU had dozens of 12" Dooku, Windu, Padme, Dengar, genosian warrior for $19.99 each. They also had the Ultimate Bounty set and Imperial Forces set. Finally, you had a choice between a clone wars Command Gunship (black) for $29.99 or a AOTC Republic Gunship (red) for $44.99. Hmmm....Tough choice there.

Target had a six pegs full of nothing but screaming Mace Windu. They had the hellfire droid and genosian fighter. Finally, they had dozens of 12" Dooku,Zam,SBattle Droids for $9.88.

09-12-2003, 11:39 PM
I visited the CM Target again. They had the Clone Wars Anakin, and "rambo" Yoda, Im sure they had Durge and Arc Trooper but I must have missed them. They also had the newest screen scenes.

Cypress Target on Katella/Knott had decapatated Tusken, Hoth Han, CW Anakin.

09-15-2003, 12:16 AM
Made a couple of early evening trips to Targets on Friday......found 2 ARC Troopers (no other CW figs) at Target in Huntington Beach. Also found 2 ARC Troopers (plus 1 Yoda & 1 Anakin) plus Blue Clones 3-pack at Target, Costa Mesa.

Both had Hailfire Droids & Geonosian Fighters.

Found Clone Wars value packs (ended up with 3 of each) at a couple L.A. area Wal-Marts I visited on Saturday. Most were crushed beyonfd belief.

Till later.....

Target at the Tustin Marketplace has 1 12" count Dooku and 15 Zam Wessels for $4.88 each. I wonder what you can make out of a 12" Zam?

TRU had 8 Ultimate Bounty and 8 Imperial forces. No hoth packs yet.

09-23-2003, 02:13 PM
TRU up on Weir Canyon and Santa Anna Canyon in Anaheim hills has one set of the Battle of Hoth! Go grab it! They also have about 8 Ultimate Bounty sets.

The Target next door has both set 1 and 2 of the war room and jedi counsel sets. They also have the new clone wars figures and hoth han and Anakin waves.

09-24-2003, 02:49 PM
I went to Target across from the Mall of Orange today. I found a 12" Captain Tarpels & Kaduu for $25. I talked to the toy employee there. He said he wanted to get rid of it so he give it to me for $12!!! That target has all of the screen scenes and most of the last three waves including clone wars stuff.

The KB in the mall had tons of hanger duel Anakins, Dooku w/ holo sideous, red clones and a few others for $2.99 again.

The walmart had the latest clone wars stuff and all the figures from waves imperial officer to present except the emporer wave. Finally they have stocked!

Made a quick trip down to Tustin last night (from L.A.), hitting a few spots on the way...

Star Traders shop at D'land: All 9 of the droids as usual, plus the same Han/Chewie/Vader/Luke/R2/Boba Fett wave that they've had for a while. My wife did miraculously stumble upon a random Yellow Clonetrooper 3-pack sitting all by it's lonesome on the opposite side of the shop! Snagged it for $15, since I've been desperately seeking these, to no avail... Anyone else seen/have the Clone 3-packs? Very interested if you have 'em!

Anyone know what the availability is on those relatively new Indiana Jones figures at the park there? I've got a few folks who are interested in having me hook them up with those, but I forgot to check in on 'em yesterday...

WM in Anaheim: Nothing interesting.

Target in Santa Ana (on Grand): At least 12 Screen Scenes (all), CW Ani & Yoda, CW Hailfire Droid & Geo Warrior ship

Target in Tustin (@ TMP): 12-14 Screen Scenes again (all of 'em)

K-Mart in Tustin: Nada.

I've been casing 5 Walmarts over the past several weeks up here in the Valley, and haven't even had a sniff of those CW value packs. Pretty sure they came and went back on that first day of their release around the country 3 weeks ago.

Happy hunting fellas...

Actually, I'm from INSIDE the Orange Curtain myself. Born in Newport Beach and raised in Tustin. But college took me to Santa Barbara many years ago, where a girl (now my wife) took me down to L.A., where I found my dream job and wound up staying (unfortunately). OC will always the place for me though, even if I can't permanently reside there anymore!

I still head down to Tustin every few weeks to visit the family though. Went down last night to congratulate my sister on her engagement. But did you really want to know all that?! images/icons/tongue.gif I've been hitting up the Star Traders shop for the past year quite frequently as well, having sent out about 40 packages of those droid figures to folks on the boards here, and at JD & GH.

So Paul, have you scoped out the Indy figure scene at the gift shop by the Jungle Cruise ride? Is it worth my time to swing by to hook my buddies up with some of those, or am I going to strike out on them since they're still fairly new and hot? Not enough notice on this past trip down, otherwise I would've probably given you a shout in here to see if you wanted to meet up there, as we discussed a while back...

BTW, is it true that Space Mountain is closed for 2 years, as someone mentioned here? That's bad news if it is, in addition to Big Thunder now... images/icons/frown.gif

I was at Disneyland about two weeks ago. They have a healthy supple of Indiana Jones figures over in adventureland. I've noticed Indiana Jones is probably the hardest to find since they only had two compared to 5-6 of each of the others. The german officer is also hard to find and I think probably the ugliest figure I've ever seen. For the most part, I think they are worth your time to pick up. They should be there for a long time to come.

Ya, Space Mountain is closed for two years for a complete rebuild of the track and new queue. Splash Mountain is closed for annual refrebishment and of course Thunder Mountain Railroad is closed probably for a good year. The Haunted Mansion is closed for its annual Haunted Mansion Holiday overlay. It opens this saturday. It's a must see overlay. It's a small world will close next week for a simular overlay. That pretty much leaves the matterhorn and Indiana Jones still open. I think its gotten to a point where DCA is starting to become the better park to visit expectially with the Tower of Terror opening next April.

Let me know the next time your at DL. images/icons/smile.gif

JediMAC
10-01-2003, 04:44 PM
Thanks for the info Paul. Sounds like hopefully I can help some buddies out with those Indy figures then (none for myself though). Another thing I'm trying to track down for a buddy in the 501st (that fan Stormtrooper regimen) are a couple of the Hasbro "roleplaying" Stormtrooper blasters that the Star Traders shop had for a while, but then pulled several months ago. Looks like they put the Han and Chewie guns back out in the new ST packaging, but still no Stormie guns. So if anyone sees those there at the park, please LMK. Thanks!

Bummer about all the rides being down at the park, for their various reasons. The wife and I usually try to get in there each year for the Holidays, so we've definitely seen the Haunted Mansion transformation several times. You're right - very cool!

I'll see about dropping you a line the next time I'm hitting up the Star Traders shop. But like I mentioned a while back, I usually just duck in there on the quick 1-hour shopping pass, so my time is forcibly limited. But maybe grabbing a bite at Downtown Disney would work too.

Anyone down in OC finding the Clonetrooper or Jedi 3-packs? Absolutely NONE of them up here in LA... Feel free to shoot me a line (anyone) if there's anything you're having trouble tracking down, and I'll keep an eye out for it up here. Always up for getting together with some local (when I'm down there) SW traders and collectors!

on another note, i actually had a chance to go to a target at 8am when they opened, and saw three, 30-something year old men run through the store when they cracked open the doors, they ran, an appeared to fake each other out as to which aisles they were going down to get to the toy dept at the back of the store. i thought to myself, great now i'm gonna find nothing, but luckily by the time i got back there(i walked like a normal adult would), they were all 3 destroying the hot wheels section. i walked on up to the sw section, grabbed the only pit of carkoon boba and was happy as a clam and left. the other "scalectors" were still raping the hot wheels section. i cracked open that boba soon as i got to the car, a great figure.

anyway, i thought i'd share that with ya images/icons/smile.gif bummer about the cw packs though images/icons/frown.gif

Walmart next to the Mall of Orange had WA-7. It looked like they restocked with the emporer wave but someone got there before I did.

The Target across the street is no longer the place to get new figures. They just filled their pegs with Senator Jar Jar wave, droid factory Padme and wave 1 clone wars figures! The screen scenes are still there but not gonig anywhere as well as the recolored jedi starfighter, gunship, Hailfire droid and genosian fighter.

Wat Tambor, Lt. Dannl Faytooni, WA-7, Coleman Trebor, Re-Packed Figures et all, found at Targets & TRU's...picked up a bunch for friends missing these.

Phurby,

I lie? Gosh, makes me glad I started to post here... images/icons/confused.gif I saw these figures on Thursday a little before 10 a.m., the pegs were full of them. What time did you get there?

I flipped through and counted the figs, heck this was the first time I saw them in person! Kinda wish I had not pre-prdered them on the net. Seeing that these are new figures, it would take about 2 seconds for someone to clear the pegs of them!

As for todays report, Tustin Toys R Us had the Emperor, WA-7, Wat Tambor, etc. wave this morning. Picked up an Emporer that had a much better paint job than mine did.

Target: TMP...A-Wings, Leia Speedbike, Clone Wars Wave 1.

Target: Barranca...not much new at all here

I find it strange that the TMP Target has NEVER had the Clone Wars multi packs!

Did you ever find the Clone Trooper Value packs at Foothill Wal-Mart? I found them at this Wal-Mart(this was a while back); 5 sets in all but each was crushed to oblivian. I keep checking KB ToyWorks in Irvine but have had no luck.

Paul went "a little" overboard with his berating of you there the other day (meant to comment on that earlier). Nothing wrong at all with posting your finds later on at night when you've got the time... I do that a lot (sometimes even the next day) in various 'Finds' threads. It's not just about "timely" reporting, though that's nice when there's still things left behind at any given store. It's also about knowing which specific stores and which retail chains in general are getting new stock in. That's just as helpful to me as timely reports, which are often not even possible for many of us to make due to time and/or computer restraints...

I have a lot of luck on the hunt, but don't always have time to find the nearest computer to make a 'Finds' post whenever I've found something. I'll just post my finds when I get home later at night - no biggie. Sure, timely reports can benefit someone who's on the standby with a car at their waiting, ready to bolt off to any given location at a moment's notice. But as we all know, that's not the case for most of us...

As for me, I know most of the local collecting guys (up here in L.A., and some in OC), and I don't even bother with store reports sometimes. I'll just nab all the new stuff, contact my buddies, we'll get together, and I'll dole out all the goodies (and they'll do the same for me). Issue of "timely" reporting solved.

So keep the reports flowing, whenever you've got the time to make them! Nice score on Anakin's Starfighter as well... And welcome to the forums too, BTW! images/icons/cool.gif

Paul, sorry man, but I think all that stuff you dumped on The OC was totally out of line, unfair, and uncalled for. There's definitely no rules or guidelines on when or how to make Store Report posts. Yeah, timely is great, but it's not the be all, end all of Store Reports. There's a lot more to it than that. Of course, it's also up to each individual here to check the date and time of a Store Report post, to figure out when the find was actually made. Definitely not the way to welcome a potentially helpful new member to the OC thread here... http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/YaBBImages/undecided.gif No hard feelings Paul, but I felt that needed to be addressed...

I'll be back down in Tustin in a couple weekends, but up here in 'The Valley' there's still been very few sitings of CW Wave 2, or the Faytonni/WA-7/Emperor wave. But, there have been a few Green Clonetrooper and Jedi Knight 3-pack scores in the last day or two (got my first sets of those last night), which is reassuring after all this time. Found some Blue Clone sets at Target last week as well. Lots of A-Wings, 12" Leia Speederbikes, Coleman/Wat/Padme, Screen Scenes, etc. at all the local Targets around here. Haven't seen jack squat at any of the local TRU's or WM's in the past several weeks though...

I'd be sure to keep checking in at the Tustin K-mart too, if you need the Red Clonetrooper set, or the Durge & Clonetrooper on Speederbikes. Found them there a couple times last month, as well as at a K-mart up here.

Happy hunting everyone!

11-06-2003, 10:23 AM
The target sale wasn't much of a sale. Only a dollar off. When is someone going to make these things $.99 like they did with ep1. I need some custom fodder.

That Kmart was usually good for finding the playskool sets before kbtoys got them. The only prob was they were never in the star wars section. In fact, they were never in the same place twice. I found a xwing set in the baby doll area. Later found the stomping wampa in the arts/crafts area. Strange because they had price stickers below them too. I even remember finding pegs of star wars figures in the boys shoes area!

I went to TRU at tustin marketplace. OC was right. They did have those figures. Unfortunately, someone clean them out! All that was left were padawan two packs. Otherwise, nothing new there. Thanks for saying you found them in the morning yesterday. I had a feeling they would be gone.

The target at tustin marketplace had nothing new except the a-wings and leia/speeders.

In the PC game aisle, they did have a new multi-pack that included 007 Nightfire, Indiana Jones and Emporers Tomb and Star Wars Galatic Battlegrounds with expansion disc. This pack was $19.99. Really good price considering they still had all three of these games separate for $39.99 each.

---Thanks for saying you found them in the morning yesterday. I had a feeling they would be gone.---

You know what Phurby...I am getting REALLY sick of you taking little pot shots at me in nearly all of your posts. They were all gone...GOOD! I am glad you did not get any. Besides, seeing that a Hot Wheels goon saw that I was buying those at the check-out line, and immediatly turned around and headed to the Star Wars area I am sure not much was left.

As for everyone else, I apologize for not specifying that this was at TMP Toys R Us. I got these figures on my way to work. I do not have readily available internet access there so it had to wait until the evening after I got home and after I put my son to bed. PRIORITIES, PRIORITIES, PRIORITIES. By the time I was able to post it was late and I simply omitted this info.

Some (friendly) advice to you Phurby (I am not going to stoop to your level) but if you have one, use your American Express card at Disneyland. If you spend a certain amount you get a 10% discount at most stores. I used to get it all the time when I was picking up Star Tours figures for myself and friends.

My report...Irvine KB Toyworks had Clone Wars 2-packs...2 fresh display cases today. I left them all as I was lucky enough to find these at Wal-Mart when they first came out. Does this mean they will still be there tomorrow? Who knows...what this information is good for is the KB ToyWorks are now getting them! Just like Toys R Us is getting those other figures. Check around. Heck I check other boards all the time. i.e. The Arizona board is a great place to find out what stores are getting.

To everyone else on this board, I apologize for the rant...I just fail to understand this guys continued treatment of me when all I am doing is providing a little helpful info images/icons/mad.gif

Jedi Knight...where were they located at KB? I was there at 3:00 today and only saw the old display up front. Considering there was about 50 BILLION people there plus I had a stroller I was not able to look around all that much. I am not in need of any of these figures, just curious as to were they were. They Action figure aisle seemed totaly devoid of Star Wars.

Puzzle Zoo South Coast Plaza...they have about EVERY figure from the entire line. Of course prices are all jacked up. Kinda neat to look at the pegs of different style cards.

As for you hiding them in trash cans... thats a good call, I have always had good luck either hiding figures in a barbeque or behind the LAMEST possible toys you can find. I once some figs behind "Wild Thornberries" toys and they stayed there for almost 3 months!

Report...NOTHING ANYWHERE (Well at least at TMP Toys R Us & Target)

Master_Phruby
11-12-2003, 03:44 PM
I went to "little old lady land" (aka Walmart) but didn't bother to rehide Lott Dodd and his evil spawn Watto. How long does something have to remain MIA before walmart will consider them stolen and remove them from their inventory?

Don't you hate how the drones put one figure on every peg to make it look like they are stocked? I once got a stock drone in trouble after I put all the figures on one peg. The manager came by and yelled at the stock drone for not evenly placing product on the pegs.

Target across the street had anakin's star fighter. But so does every other target in existance.

Agreed: NOTHING ANYWHERE

Take 'em down to San Diego instead! images/icons/cool.gif

Not much new up here this past week, but I was somewhat startled to see the Unleashed Jedi Luke, Emperor/Sidious and Obi-Wan at my local TRU. First time I've seen any new Unleashed since Anakin and Padme from about a year ago it seems. Not that I even collect that line... But I did pick up a couple sets for some other fellas on the boards.

More and more Green, Blue, White and Red Clonetrooper 3-packs showing up out here though, so that's a positive at least!

Paul or Justin - Do you know if Disneyland takes returns with a receipt? And if so, for how long? I picked up a set of the Indiana Jones figures for a guy on the boards last month, but he backed out of the deal and doesn't want them anymore. Considering how crappy most of them look, I doubt I'll be able to find any other takers for them either... Any ideas?

First time I've ever gotten stuck with something from there, after about 25 D'land shopping trips for people on the boards... http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/YaBBImages/undecided.gif

Ever notice how walking from your car into Little Old Lady Land you take your life in your own hands? Cars are parked in strange ways. Walking in the parking lot you almost get run over by the "Where's the beef" lady. There are people trying to sell stereo equipment out of their van.

Once you are in the store, you have to walk really really slowly because someone is pushing their walker/cart in front of you and you can't get around them because the aisles are so narrow due to misplaced palettes of Fruit Loops.

Finally, when you get to the star wars section you are greeted with LOTT DODD! images/icons/mad.gif Now, you try to leave the place very slowly due to walkers and motorized wheelchairs. Finally, you have to say good bye to the grandpa guard at the front door as he visually inspects you for stolen goods. I mean why else would anyone come in and leave within five minutes and not buy anything?

This time, Dodd and his pet Watto have been placed in a far corner of little old lady land on the floor, underneath the botton shelf, near the garden Nome, under a rock, beneath a swarm of bacteria leaches. Try to find that!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

That's great news! See it worked! I'm glad they finally put out something even if they arn't exactly new.

I've checked out walmart in Pomona and Chino today. Pathetic selections. In fact, these two stores had figures that would make Lott Dodd look new! Ie. ep2 young boba fett, female tuskin raider and white battle droid. They even had the original backgrounds!! Little old lady land is really sad.

Chino Hills target had nothing note worthy except recarded Maul and padme wedding dress. KBToy works had red clone three packs. The lightsaber and three figures pack was reduced to $14.99.

Pomona TRU (Gary & 60fwy) had all 12" figures up until the Han Solor/AT-ST driver wave. They also restocked with lots of CW yodas and screen scenes. Why are TRU screen scenes $21.99? I though TRU was the low price leader...Guaranteed. That's all I can remember.

Nothing really to get excited about unless you want the first wave of ep2 figures.

Its PUZZLE ZOO at South Coast Plaza.

Puzzle Zoo is a toy store that first originated at the 3rd Street Promanade in Santa Monica. This store took over the old Toys International spot at SCP.

It carries toys from Thomas the Tank Engine (the reason I was there) to Barbie Dolls to Star Wars. In that sense I would just say its your run of the mill mall toy store...prices are a bit higher there but the selection is much better. If your a Simpsons fan they have a TON of figures and playsets.

I guess you could also label it a "scalper mall store" because like the original in Santa Monica it has a couple glass cabinets with older toys in it. I didn't give them a look this time but I over heard a couple of guys saying that they couldn't believe the price on a vintage carded Chewbacca, $100 +.

Its a fun place to look, but I wouldn't buy anything brand new there.

Jediknight760071

Yep. That's the actual name of the site, and yes - they are very legit. Just popped onto the web a few weeks ago, and have been all the rage ever since. Cheap and new figures, with very low shipping costs. They're apparently down right now for maintenance though. Probably from getting so overloaded recently!

Been doing pretty well up here in the Valley over the past week - I've found the Green and White Clonetrooper 3-packs a couple times, and most of the Bail wave and CW wave 2 at several of the local Targets as well. New Legos at TRU too.

On my way down to OC tomorrow for the Thanksgiving weekend, so we'll see how things look down in your neck of the woods. Maybe I'll run into a couple of you at TMP, since that's right around the corner from my family's place, and my usual hunting grounds of choice... images/icons/wink.gif

Hey gang,

As of 11:00 am today, TMP Toys R Us put out a fresh case of Clone Wars Deluxe...Jedi Knights & Green Clone Toopers included! They were still there when I left. Also had Sidious Unleashed wave if you have any interest.

Little old lady land (aka walmart @ mall of orange) found two Lott Dodds!!! No sign of his pet Watto though. Not a single figure in the star wars section but those two. I guess the good news is they didn't find the other four.

Still having a pretty tough time finding any extras (beyond my initial two) of the Concept Stormie and the Club trio of Obi-Wan, Elan, and Ayy Vida. You guys having any luck with those?

Anyone found the new Ultra (Deluxe) sets yet? Sounds like they started hitting the West Coast the past couple days now - at TRU and WM...

Didn't see squat up here in the Valley today, aside from the new Lego Snowspeeder finally. Lots of those 12" Leia on Speederbikes starting to pile up at all the local Targets right now. Hopefully those start moving (it's in their ad this week), lest they become a concern for eating up a good portion of highly valuable Holiday shelf space.

I have found a stray Ayy Vada & Elan once each at TMP Target. They were sitting by the Marvel Legends figures. I have found Obi on several occasions at various stores.

JediMac, I'm going to return the favor.

Go to AHF Target right now. You know the Target on Anaheim Hills and weir canyon across from the 91. They have Elan, Ayy Vida, Imperial dignatary 1, Lt. Daniels, recard Maul, Han and Leia.

Phruby, we just missed each other. I got the Stormtrooper and Obi-Wan around 11:30. I was there when the guy put them out, finally some good luck. Sorry my report is late, met with a friend for lunch. Anyone see the A-Wing yet at Target, it's in the add also in small print.

12-03-2003, 06:48 PM
That store has 9 of them! You have to look on the shelve above the legos asile.

I just like to mooch off your OC thread since it still feels like home to me there! images/icons/cool.gif

Plus it helps me to follow which respective store chains (down there) are getting stuff in, so I can search those same places up here in the Valley, since we're usually right in line with eachother's findings...

There were a lot of A-Wings floating around up here several weeks ago, but they seem to have dried up here now. Very few of the ones I looked at were in any kind of decent shape package wise, if you're into that kind of thing.

Are you guys down there finding the Elan WITH or WITHOUT ears? The only two I've come across were without, which is the corrected version. Still need to find me a couple with ears. Saw them at SCP Puzzle Zoo last weekend, but wasn't about to fork over $10 a piece for them...

The only ones I've seen are the ones WITH ears. How about that! I even noticed the one I got from EE has ears.

Ahh, the good old valley days. I use to live up on Mulholland. Hows my old Notre Dame HS doing? Are they winning any football games?

Hey,


Nothing to report...got sick today, so I stayed home, but my mum went around and found zip. We're like the dynamic duo, but don't go too far from home.


I've only seen Elan w/out ears, and was wondering if Puzzle Zoo-for those of you that have been there recently- has any old rebel starships or Zuckuss. Thanks.

ok my trip to the orange mall to get family photos totally sucked, BUT, while in wallyworld afterwards(around 8:30pm), i saw on a pallet, a box marked SW ULTRA FIG ASST. they had a super condom wrapped around the pallet so i guess they will be out in the morning and i didnt feel like trying to pry out this box after a foul trip to the mall.

oh yeah the dodd bros. are still hanging around. i wanted to vomit when i saw them images/icons/grin.gif

Phruby,

Got to the FOOTHILL Wal-Mart...err Little Old Lady Land RIGHT NOW! You will NOT believe there selection of Star Wars figures!

They have 1...yes 1 LOTT DODD! Nothing else, nadda zip!

I have warned you all now...this is not 1 per case...its 1 per store!

Would it be considered shoplifting or some other crime if the Lott brothers ended up in one of Walmart's own trash cans? I don't mean the ones they sell, I mean the ones they use. That way they would be throwing out their own merchandise.

Master_Phruby
12-04-2003, 02:35 PM
I picked up two sets of the Ultra sets at the walmart @ mall of orange. They don't have anymore there. The good news is one set is for you guys.

Please email me if you want it. We could arrange a meeting or at least shipping.

I wonder if the Yellow Clones are shipping with the Spider? That'd be great news if they were, since they've replaced Green as the hardest ones to find now!

Haven't kept tabs on Notre Dame high school football Paul, sorry! I'm sure they're kicking some ***** as usual though... We used to live right around the corner from there before moving out to Santa Clarita a few months ago.

I went to DL tonight. The star trader only had wave 2 clone wars figures. They also had a dozen each of clone speeders and durge speeders. Unleashed Han, Mace and Dooku are still around. No clone two packs or ultra packs. Lots of star tours droids.

Here is a picture:

Phruby I think we're on the same wave length or something (scary) lol! I was at Disneyland also last night. I ended up getting the Chewie t-shirt. I wanted the Yoda also but they had no xl.
