I stopped at the TRU, Target and Meijers by Fox Valley, and there wasn't anything new at any of these stores. There were remnants of ANH VOTC figures and first waves of OTC at Target and Meijers. That TRU is an absolute joke, and if I weren't in such a hurry to get in-and-out of there I would have complained to the store manager. The recently re-designed Star Wars section was pretty empty and with the old Saga 2002 figures left behind it looked like a tornado had hit it. Toys were everywhere!

NW Indiana: Just got back from Merrillville. Nothing exciting. TRU had some decent VOTC (Boba & Stormie), but no 3PO, R2, or Chewie. Found newer OTC at Wal-Mart: AT-ST Han, General Lando, and General Madine.

Other notes: In case anyone's interested, amazon is having a nice sale on some season one DVD sets, like Angel, Buffy, Futurama, 24, all for $14.99 each:
http://slickdeals.net/?pno=5301&lno=1&afsrc=1
(the link will redirect you to amazon.com)

Also, the Valpo Wal-Mart has several of that 20th anniversary Optimus Prime on clearance for $25, down from $60+. They have plenty, and even though I had already bought one off ebay for ~$45, I'm thinking about getting another one since it's so cheap...

TRU Joliet had a bunch of silver R2s marked down to $.50
My friend and I bought a few and they rang up as $.01 apiece. Twere a bunch left (most of the packages were in good condition). They were not in the store, but in a tent outside the store (the clearance tent). For a penny you can't go wrong. There were about 10 left when we left around 10. I hope this helps someone.

Highland Park TRU had 2 Y-wings on the shelves today. I didn't buy one because my Star Wars funds are a little low right now. I'll probably end up regretting that. I hope these become like the Red-Leader X-wing and I can find them everywhere when I have more fun money.

10-28-2004, 01:22 PM
The Schaumburg TRU had one Y-wing as of noon. I'm in the process of moving the entire contents of my house into storage while the new house is built (and I live with my in-laws for six months! Yikes!). So in other words, I left it there.

I picked up the last two Silver Vaders, thanks for the tip. Cards and bubbles are in great shape. They also had some Galactic Heroes 2-packs I'd not seen before: the bounty hunters, 4Lom, Bossk, IG88 and Zuckuss.

Thanks for the heads up on the Touhy Walmart, I picked up the AT-ST Han this morning after work, I'm finally caught up on the OTC (the portions I want at least) and just need one more VOTC (C3P0 of course). It's an odd feeling, a month ago I needed like 13 figures to be caught up, now just one.

I was at TRU in St.Chuck, and there were pegs full of VOTC C-3PO'S, VOTC Stormies, OTC Imperial Scan Troopers, OTC Army Builders, Silver Vaders, and tons more!...back to reality...
Well, actually there were 7 empty pegs, and absolutely no sign of any new figures, or even anything other than the Vader Voice Changer Helmets. There were NO Silver Vader figures at all, and even if there had been, there was no product to buy to get the free figure anyway.

I really hope TRU follows KB and goes belly-up already, because they absolutely SUCK!
Why do I even bother stopping in there? I never find jack when they run these deals and we would be better off if the exclusives go somewhere else.
Target is also sucking big time with the exclusives lately, as I have yet to see any Slave I's at any of the local stores at all...

They had the Silver Vaders at the check in counter. Target in Highland Park had several OTC from the scanner wave all with bent cards. It also had the Bounty Hunter wave of Galactic Heroes including the stormie two pack and one Slave 1.

To those of you finding the Playskool Jedi Force figures - are they with the regular SW stuff, or near the other Playskool toys? Thanks...



At Target, they were where they keep the Galactic Heroes (which is not by the Star Wars toys).

Target in Batavia had VOTC ROTJ and ESB (no C-3PO's) this morning....

11-02-2004, 02:17 PM
The Target in Glenview on Willow Rd. had all the ESB VOTC except C-3P0. The OTC figures weren't exciting and no Slave I. I did score all 4 of the Jedi Force figures. The pegs were next to the Galactic Heroes in the aisle next to the regular Star Wars toys, but they were empty. I took the peg to a scanner and it said there were more in back. I asked an employee if they could get more in the back. He brought out a case of them. The case breakdown was 2 Lukes, 2 R2-D2/C-3P0s, 1 Chewbacca and 1 Darth Vader. I took 1 of each. There was a Luke and a C-3P0 left. They were $7.99 each.

Ok, I see you guys keep mentioning using the Target scanners to tell if there is stuff in the back, but all of the scanners I see only tell the price... like a 2-line digital display. Is this a unit near the front of the store, or in a special place? Maybe the NW Indiana Targets just aren't as high-tech as the Chicago ones...
By the way, thanks for the info on where to find the Jedi Force figs, aisle-wise.

The newer stores have scanners that have a set of numbers 0-9 on the right side of the scanner that you can punch in the sku number. For example, if you were to put in 0870600758 in the scanner, it will tell you whether or not there is stock on the Imperial Scan Trooper wave... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I think that's Target's code to order more figures, the one that appears on the peg, not a code for a specific figure or case assortment. You could use the code to see if there are any more figures in the back but if the pegs are full they still won't bring them out and it won't tell you what assortment they have in back.

Found the General OTC wave at Target on Lake-Cook this morning. Also, found one beat up Jedi Force Luke which I snagged as an opener. They also had the Galactic Heroes stormie twofer. Nothing new at the Wal-Mart across the way. The Target in Highland Park has some VOTC Stormtroopers and Boba Fetts. No C3P0. Is it my imagination or did they revise the VOTC cloak for Yoda to make it less puffy? On another note, a long while back I had a problem with getting a Hyperspace membership as an existing fan club member. At the time, I had several exchanges with customer service and eventually it got straightened out after about a month. At the time, a customer service person indicated I would receive two free membership packages. This was so long ago, I don't even remember when it was. In any event, lo and behold, a membership kit showed up today with a Topps Heritage P6 Promo card. This helped my spirits a little.

That is the number from the Scan Trooper wave, it should tell you if there is any more in stock in the store...It worked for me when I tried it, but my Target only had 1 case from that wave last week.

That's funny...I totally forgot about my fan club membership - I thought I had one coming, but I didn't get the kit when they first shipped, so I thought maybe I hadn't signed up for the club when they were offering them. Well, I got mine the other day too. Now I guess I should inquire if I got a Hyperspace membership with it.

Had an infuriating experience with a very badly rat-tailed employee at the Orland Park Target (my new stomping grounds). Last night, I did a run while taking a load of stuff to storage and I'm searching the pegs, minding my own business. Rat Tail comes down the aisle and says, "Do you need any help?" Shocked at this rare display of customer service, I said politely, "No thanks." Rat Tail says, "Hey, are you looking for that Boba Fett Slave I." I said, "Wow, yeah." Rat Tail: "It's backstocked." Me, as it appeared he might go fetch one: "Hey, I'd take one if you've got them." Rat Tail: "Well, if I find one, I'll be sure to put it out at some point."

OK, I can deal with being ignored, and I rarely ask employees for help because of the inevitable [censored] response, but this guy sought ME out, brought up a toy I didn't even ask about, then gives me this jagbag response when I express interest. I refuse to have my chain jerked by some rat-tailed 19 year old. Moral of the story: next time, I'm bringing scissors!!!

Oh, and Orland Target and Wal-mart chock full of Madine wave and the TRU had VOTC except for C3P0.

I haven't gone on many runs lately. Between Kane County, amazon.com's free shipping offer, and weasel27 helping me out, I haven't had to. But I went on a little one today.

I started out in the Ford City mall trying to get my license renewed. While there, I stopped in KB just for laughs. I thought for sure that they wouldn't have anything, but low and behold they had some OTC. Most of it was the older stuff, but I did leave behind a couple of Snowtroopers. I grabbed a Tusken Raider and Jawas. The down side is that the figures were $6.99. I then stopped by the Target and Walmart on Cicero just north of Ford City. Nothing new. However, the Walmart had one ESB 3pack just lying there and in perfectly good condition. They also had plenty of the C-3PO and Darth Vader carrying cases.

JTS - that story is hilarious. Did you at least point out to him what he had done? Maybe he wasn't truly aware of how much of a jerk he was being.

I read the thread on KIDD . . . reading other people's posts when they are angry is so much better than writing your own angry post. KIDD: I hope your suspension is a short one and you come back to us soon.

11-13-2004, 04:54 PM
Wow, KIDD got bounced, but I'm not sure it was deserved. Those other guys were egging him on. Sure, he swore, but big deal. They took cheap shots at him by getting his kids involved, and he DID apologize at one point. It's not like he did anything wrong in front of his kids. Didn't sound like he even knew he wasn't charged for it until AFTER he left the store. And if his children didn't know about it, and he didn't know about it until after the fact or on the way home...what's the harm?

His situation DOES pose an interesting ethical question: is it stealing if an employee bags an item and doesn't charge you for it? I would say only if the employee was a friend who did it on purpose. Otherwise, it's employee error. How many times do people get double-scanned at the store and don't notice it? Happens every day in almost every grocery store. On the flip side, there have been a few instances where I've gotten too much change back and, having worked retail when I was in college and knowing you get yelled at if your drawer is short, I made sure to correct the error if I knew it was happening. But getting change back is something you're actively aware of, whereas what gets scanned and what doesn't in a place with limited counter space like TRU...is a busy situation where you're not always aware of what's going on. Especially if you're wrangling children and trying to pay, etc. etc.

Sorry for the diarrhea of the keyboard.

11-13-2004, 08:48 PM
Well SOS, based on your info I went ahead and ordered the post OTC wave and the two Jedi Council scenes. Even with the free shipping you still end up paying more because they are charging 2 extra bucks per figure. I calculated the difference between buying them in store vs. online as $8.89 (depending on what sales tax you use). But hey, I could easily spend that much and more driving around trying to find all five figures plus the two council scenes. Not to mention the amount time toy hunting takes. Time that I don't have, especially in November and December.

It's money well spent then because I wasted at least $8 on gas dricing around for nothing more than the thrill of the hunt. I came home with a couple of Imperial Scan Troopers from TRU in Downers Grove and no new figs.

His situation DOES pose an interesting ethical question: is it stealing if an employee bags an item and doesn't charge you for it? I would say only if the employee was a friend who did it on purpose. Otherwise, it's employee error. How many times do people get double-scanned at the store and don't notice it? Happens every day in almost every grocery store. On the flip side, there have been a few instances where I've gotten too much change back and, having worked retail when I was in college and knowing you get yelled at if your drawer is short, I made sure to correct the error if I knew it was happening. But getting change back is something you're actively aware of, whereas what gets scanned and what doesn't in a place with limited counter space like TRU...is a busy situation where you're not always aware of what's going on. Especially if you're wrangling children and trying to pay, etc. etc.

Sorry for the diarrhea of the keyboard.

Why would anyone even bring it up to begin with? I am not trying to take sides, but I wouldn't recommend posting one's questionable practices online, and then getting upset when someone rips you for it, what did you expect would happen by letting everyone know in the first place?

Oops, sorry that was the TRU on Ogden, I am not entirely sure if it's still really Downers Grove there, but that is the one I was refering to. There were 3 of them haning on the pegs, I took 1 and another guy there took 1, so there was one left, but I'm sure it found a new home by now as well.

I don't see anyone taking cheap shots at his kids. They were calling him out on the carpet as to whether he was teaching his kids that this was acceptable or not. Now I'm not saying I condone this, and I'm also not saying I haven't done this (on a lesser scale, like a buck too much change or whatever) but I wouldn't go shouting it from the rooftops either. I do find it hard to believe he didn't notice when he paid (unless he's too independantly wealthy to add up what he's got in his head like most of do). Anyway...

I picked up the three new Star Wars DVDs last night at Sam's Club. They are being sold as a set there. They were $25.56 before tax. This was a pretty decent price since the second best price was Circuit City for $8.99 a piece ($26.97 + tax). Anyway if you don't know the DVDs I'm talking about, they are 1) The Ewok TV Movies (Caravaan of Courage and Battle for Endor), 2) The Droids Cartoon and 3) The Ewoks Cartoon.

As long as you didn't go to Best Buy, the crowds were minimal, at least out here in the Tri-Cities area.

I agree with you the Jedi Council Circle looks great once complete. I just wish they would have made it more accurate, a Coleman Trebor with bendable knees would have been nice instead of the Adi or action posed Eeth.

This is admittedly somewhat lame, given the distance, but just in case we have N. Indiana readers:

The TRU in Michigan City, IN had an OTC Slave Leia (card all beat to hell) and a Bib Fortuna. Also had just about all of the post-OTC wave (Rabe, Wookie Sen, etc), but many of the cards were not mint. This was after I took a Rabe and another one I can't remember, and a Bib.

The nearby Meijer and Wal-mart stores had Sweet FA.

Not much on the pegs this morning at Target for the $4 sale on basic figures, but I did get $4 back for some figures that I have bought within the last 2 weeks. They will refund the difference of any Star Wars item on sale this week that was purchased in the last 2 weeks from them...
