Did a little running around today for the first time in a while and found one Boba Fett cup and a couple of blue clone three packs at Target in Orland. Also went to TRU in orland and I picked up the Green clone commander repaint there. They had plenty of 500th Vaders and plenty of Obi Wan Jedi Starfighter exclusive. Also saw the Anakin evolution set at Walmarts in Bridgeview and Bedford Park this evening but didn't pick them up. Bridgeview Walmart had the Titanium series multipacks in stock too. TRU in Bridgeview had 500th Vaders and not much else except a bunch of wookies and Neimodians.

Still looking for green clone 3 packs and was there ever a 3 pack that had green,blue and rust in one package? Also, is the red the same as the rust/brown clone 3 pack? Been out of it a while and just wanted to find out what the deal was with the 3 pack clones. Also, has anyone seen the TRU exclusive Lego imperial shuttle? I saw it all over the place a while ago and now nothing.

My wife and I had some shopping to do tonight, so here's what's out there.

Target South Elgin (randall) - one Evolutions Vader set and a few Jedi vs. Sith sets. Left there around 9:30 PM.

Target St Charles had a Clone 3-pack (rust), Zett Zukassa (he's buried behind some of the C2 pegwarmers lower left and three Vader 500th figures at closing tonight.

Good luck!

The TRU near Woodfield had around 9-12 500th Vaders, they were up on the top of the racks not where any customer could actually get one.

The woodfield KB had a bunch of Anakin Evo sets and looked to have some newer figures, I saw a couple of Bacara's and at least one crispy Anakin.

Seraphim: sorry I didn't reply about the Green Commander, I got once over the weekend from a friend, thanks for the offer!

Clone Repaints were at the Touhy/Niles WalMart this morning. A Hasbro vendor was restocking. Looks like that Walmart got all the toys for the stores entire restock. So They should have Shock Troopers/AT-RT Drivers/Green Commanders and all that. I saw a Box for Evolution sets. Side note: Has anyone seen the Best of Marvel figures? The chase ones I mean. Touhy Walmart got several cases of the regular wave. booooooo Toybiz on this one.

08-15-2005, 10:35 AM
Orland Park Wallyworld had about a half-dozen Clone 41s and a couple Bacaras this morning. That re-set really sucks, because there's a lot less room for figures, obviously.

On Sunday, the Target had a half-dozen Vader 500s and one Vader Evolution set after I got mine.

That's okay. I still only have the one, which I am waiting for Chairman_Meow to get back to me about.

Has anyone in Chicagoland found a Black Pilot yet?

TheAngryRaccoon
08-15-2005, 12:22 PM
I don't think the black Pilots are even out in this area yet. The only waves I've seen lately are the ones with the colored Clones/Obi Wan/ATRT Driver/Bacara/etc. and the ones with Crispy Anakin/R2D2 #48/Mustafar Sentry/etc.

Walmart/Glen Ellyn restocked yesterday afternoon. Unfortuantely, I could not get on the darn boards to tell anyone! I found a red and green clonetrooper fresh out of the box. They had a ton of regular clones (6 & 41) plus a lot of Vaders, Obi Wan 55's and Bacaras.

It's looking like the colored clones are only one per case. When I opened the fresh box, that's all that was in there.

MarleyEds

I don't believe there was a Clone 3 Pack with one of each color - that was just a rumor. Also, the red/rust/brown are all the same - just referred to differently.

Also, the black Clone Pilots have been found!

08-15-2005, 02:40 PM
I actually did find a Shocktrooper at Glen Ellyn Wal-Mart yesterday. They had no more Green Commanders or AT-RT Drivers, but a lot of Pilot Obi-Wan.

I don't think the all colored Clone 3 Pack was so much a rumor, as a mock up. There are actual pictures of it, I just think Hasbro made one or two for promo purposes, but never shipped it.

Does anyone know the Wave, Revision number for the Black Pilot assortment? Or what is in the cases? I, too, have only seen Wave 6, Rev 1 (Mustafar Sentry) and Wave 6, Rev 3 (Colored Clones). I am all caught up now, except for the Black Pilot.

had a chance to make a run for the first time in forever.... the WAL-MART FROM HELL had a couple of 500 Vaders, quite a few #41 clones, and 2 Anakin Evolutions which I stashed up the aisle on the lower shelf just under the Pokeman Picachoos. Target Niles just up the street had a ton of #6 clones but that was it. Target on Golf had zilch and TRU across the street had one brown clone 3-pack. Pickings are pretty slim right now.

Thanks for the insight on the colored clones guys! I found a Mustafar Lego set for $7 at Bridgeview Walmart.Looked cool with the lightsabers lighting up on Obi and Ani. It was the only one there in the clearance aisle.

Seems KIDD's advice is paying off cause I've actually found a few items I needed at TRU and Walmart. Nothing at Target except for the cups all summer.

Hey Flembar, when were you at the Golf Mill TRU? I was over there today about 3pm-ish. Alas they did have nothing, in fact of all the stores in the Golf Mill area, only the Kohl's had anything of note, 2 black Clone Pilots. They're doing a buy 1 get 1 half off deal on all toys. However, SW figures are $7.99, so you're not really saving any money.

Seraphim
08-15-2005, 05:47 PM
Hmmm, time to call Kohl's for Black Pilots. Oh, and what the hell is a "FV Store"?

Oh okay. That would make sense. It's not too far from me, and in between my two haunts (Home being Joliet and Wheaton being where my best friend is). Despite that, I rarely go to Fox Valley anymore.

08-15-2005, 09:18 PM
Hodgkins Wal-mart had a couple Obi Wan Pilot 55 (left them because the line was too long and he'll be warming pegs before too long) and a few of the titanium series multi-packs (sorry, don't collect so don't know exactly what they are) and six Anakin-to-Vader evolution.

Nearby Target had a bunch of clones (6/41), but nothing else of note.

Wal Mart on Meechame still has some Bacarras and Obi-Wan pilots. There were a couple At Rt Drivers sitting there the last few days, but I think someone was buying them when I was there.

Wal Mart in Rolling Meadows is still DEAD.

Target on Higgins has tons of 500th Vaders and Jedi vs. Sith Battle Packs, but nothing else.

On Sunday I lucked out and found an Unleashed Vader at the K Mart on 83. hey had one Vader and three Ventress. I passed opn the Ventress, as it doesn't really interest me. Unfortunately, the one I want most, Palpatine vs. Yoda, was nowhere to be seen.

For those near the border looking around, just wanted to chime in with my list of WalMArts that suck. Unfortunately these are the only the ones I am able to get to frequently:

Kenosha - has had only 3 bail figures for the last 2 months...BUT great news!!! sometime yesterday someone bought a Bail!!!!! WE ARE DOWN TO TWO!!!!

Lake Geneva - nothing, not a single figure. My wife knows people that work there and the guy running the toy department was going to look into it but had no explanation as to why they haven't got any in.

Antioch - they have re-set. Now the 30+ Neimodian Warriors that were spread out all over the place are jammed onto 10 pegs.

Gurnee Mills - little shelf space LOADED with old figures. Even if they got new stuff in there is no where to put it.

Wheeling - same as above

Please feel free to add your sucky WalMart to the list...

notes from the hodgkins area:

wal-mart: several pilot obi-wans and 3 anakin evolutions sets

kohl's: black clone pilots! looked to be 3 black and 3 regular pilots, neimoidian guard, destroyer droid, a couple red clone commanders, a couple bacaras, one #41 and 2 #50. still one black pilot on the pegs.

target: a smattering of older figures... vader, 3p0, a bunch of (all-white) #6 clones, and at least one at gunner.

also, the wal-mart had TNA figures, if anyone's on the lookout for those.

Walmart on 75th street in Darien had 1 #56, a couple of #55 and a #54 left as of 11 this morning. I was also able to both repaints at the same walmrt yesturday, they were the last ones however. No sign of the black clone pilots yet!

This isn't a Chicago find but I'm excited and wanted to share. Mamajoe found me a Sith Evolutions set out in Arizona. She's looking for a Clone Trooper set as well. The West coast sucks because they get everything first. But when you have a west coast connection, its not so bad.

The Orland TRU had a few 500th Vaders. Check on the side opposite the figures. There's some junk like VOTC Landos back there. But there are a few 500th Vaders.

CorranHorn
08-16-2005, 06:19 PM
A little late on the posting, but the Touhy Walmart had some stuff this morning, and some of it may still be there.

They had 2 Anakin Evolutions sets, likely the ones Flembar mentioned. I picked up one, it's a good set, I plan to review it at some point on Jedidefender. They also had several 500th Vaders as well. As for single carded figures, they had 2 Red Clonetroopers (sorry I picked them both up), 2 Green Clone Commanders, 2 Obi-Wan Pilots and 2 AT-RT Drivers (I picked up one of each of the last 2).

The sad thing is, all of this stuff barely filled half of the alloted space for Star Wars in the main section. I'm concerned this may indicate that this store won't really be getting as much stuff down the road and I really want Clone evolution sets.

I stopped into the Target in Rosemont today @ 1:30

I must have just missed the new figs.......there were Bacaras on the pegs, along with a slew of white # 6 troopers, and grey # 34 pilots.

The stocking on the SW stuff is still way thin!!!

FINALLY got 51-53 today! The Wal Mart on Meecham put out one case this morning. I got in right at opening and got one of each. When I left there was still a red guard, At-Te Gunner and one each of 51-53. I had to stop there again on my way home to do a price adjustment (figures are marked as $4.98, but rang up $5.88), and everything new was gone. I would have posted earlier, but I was on my way to work, and didn't have a chance.

Wal Mart in Rolling Meadows and Target in Higgins both have not stocked in at least a couple weeks. The Target does seem to keep getting new clone 3 packs in, though, as there are different colors almost every other day. Also, they almost always have 500th Vaders and jedi/sith battle packs.

broctoon
08-18-2005, 09:43 AM
Wal Mart on Meecham seemed to have put out another case today. It was the one with Obi-Wan pilot and At-Rt Driver. What was weird was that I was the first one in the store, and all the figures from that case were on the pegs, except there were no shock troopers. There was even a green commander. I wonder if an employee snagged them.

Target on Higgins still has like twelve 500th Vaders, and lots of rust colored clones, but no new figures.

I hit the 83 Wal Mart instead of the Rolling Meadows one, and there was nothing new.

Looks like the Evolutions are hitting everywhere. Flordia, Ohio, VA and for sure the west coast. It has to be only a matter of time before they hit here. I saw a box of evolutions on Monday on a pallet but didn't think to have a worker open it. I thought it was a box of just Anakin's so it could have had Clones in it. Anyone seen any or keeping their eyes open for the CLones?

Walmart on Touhy/Niles had about 10 Black Clone Pilots as of 7:45 this morning. Looks like that Walmart got cases last night. There were some Green Commanders but no Shock Troopers. I picked up one Black Pilot to keep in the package. I think that the Clone Pilot is one of the worst figures of the whole ROTS bunch. But this all black paint job somewhat makes up for the lack of effort on Hasbro's part.

I found all three new Unleashed at the Rolling Meadows Wal Mart this morning. I only needed the Yoda/Sidious, so I left all the rest. When I was buying it I spotted two black clone pilots sitting on the cigarette counter.

Wal-Mart Villa Park had about three Asajj Ventress Unleashed as of about an hour ago. The cards were pretty dinged up though. They had a few Bacaras and regular 6 and 41 clones, no colored ones though.

Target Lombard by Yorktown had one Vader 500th figure.

Anyone seen the Clone Evolutions 3 pack around here yet?

broctoon
08-20-2005, 09:49 AM
I just stopped into that Wal Mart on 83 in Villa Park also. If you look up there are TONS of all three new Unleashed on the top shelf. There's a big stack that goes up so high that you can't even reach, so if you're looking for these I'd say you should stop there. Someone must have made off with quite a few shock troopers from there today or yesterday 'cause there's lots of 41 clone and the Vader and Grievous that come in that case. There was also one Utapaun Warrior burried in there too. Plenty of Obi-Wan Pilots, as it's looking like it's starting to peg warm at some stores.

Wal Mart on Meecham in Elk Grove had one each of 51-53 and the new Unleashed as well (but only one Vader and two each of the others). I guess the new Unleashed are pretty widespread now, which is a good thing. Hopefully the final wave gets to be this easy to find.

Was at the St. Charles Wal Mart at about 3pm and they finally did their restock. I had been to that store nearly everyday for 2 weeks. They had every figure from 45-56 there. I think I got the last Tarkin, but when I left there was at least one or more of 46-56 left. No repaints though.
Also checked the STC Target, STC TRU, and Batavia Target and no repaints or 45+ at those. Batavia Target had a bunch of Vader 500 and STC Target had a bunch of Anakin Evolutions.

A bunch of #50's and 56's. No Tarkins. If anyone out there could grab me two or one, one to open and one to keep carded that would be great. I'd pay cost put a couple extra for the gas. There are no Tarkins here in the city and I have crap to do for the rest of the day so toys have to wait. Happy Hunting.

Picked the lone Utapuan Warrior and Mustafar Sentry at the Walmart on Rt. 83. ONly things of note are tons of Obi Wan Pilot and all 3 of the new Unleashed. KB in Yorktown had a few Anakin Evolutions and Jedi vs. Sith packs, but that's about it.

Damn, I was at the Villa Park Wal Mart yesterday, and they didn't have any clon evolutions then. Must have put them out today, I guess. I did however finish up with all the basic figures today when I found a Mustafar Sentry at the Meecham Wal Mart in Elk Grove.

And a heads up for anyone looking for black clone pilots- the Khol's in Elmhurst on 83 had about 10 of them as of 5:00 pm. They are pretty expensive at around $7.99 and some have stickers on the bubbles. No other repaints there though, just some Bacarras and #50 Anakin.

Last time I saw a red Clonetrooper was last Sunday at the Glen Ellyn Wal-Mart. Have not seen them since.

I've never seen the Shocktrooper and had to trade for mine. Also never have seen the blue saber Palpatine. I've seen every other figure or variant in at least 2 places besides those. Oh and I had to trade for my Sith Eyes Anakin too as I kept missing those too.

OK, Rolling Meadows Wal-mart had two Vader Unleashed, both on crappy cards (crappier than the normal crappy unleashed cards), after I bought my one.

Orland Park Wallyworld and Target each had one or two Unleashed Emperor v. Yoda. Also at the WM, there were five white Clone 3-packs after I bought one (just for the helluva it).

All three locations had Vader 500s.

I bought what I think is a Sith Eyes Anakin at Rolling Meadows wal-mart, and they had a couple more left (the Sith Eyes Anakin is the #27 Anakin as opposed to the #2 Anakin, right?)

Nothing above 50 (besides the pegwarming 55 Obi Pilots) at any of the three.

Oh, and Orland TRU had jackdiddly that anyone would want.

And finally, a question: is there a variation or something new about the #11 Vader, because I'm seeing them everywhere.

Wal Mart Glen Ellyn had a couple Ventress Unleashed. Cards appeared to be in decent shape. As for their regular figures, they're pretty full. It's all the same ones, Vader/Grievous/R2 #7/etc. All from the same box..the same box that has the Anakin Sith Eyes.

Wal Mart Villa Park had two Anakin/Sith Eyes. I had to dig for them, but I grabbed them both. One to open, one to display.

BTW...Entertainment Earth has the new figures up with Wave listings. It looks like the 501st Clonetrooper will be 3 per case. Most of the other ones are only one per case though, dammit. I want Gree. I wonder if his head's going to come off...hmmm...

snagged the only two shock troopers this morning at the Meecham Wal mart. Only thing left worth noting was a couple green commanders. They have a bunch of 48-50, but I don't think anybody us really having trouble finding those anymore as they seem pretty common.

Wal Mart in Rolling Meadows has nothing worth mentioning. Still no sight of the Clone Evolutions around here yet that I know of.

edit: just remembered- there was also a sith eyes Anakin at the Meecham Wal Mart if anyone is looking for one. I didn't buy it 'cause I didn't feel like buying another one of that sculpt with such a minor change. It does look a little better this way, though.

Looks like today was the day for Wal-Mart stocking the shocktroopers - I found some at the one where Hwys. 41 & 30 intersect (I can't remember if that is the Highland or Schererville one), PLUS they had about 12 each of the new Unleasheds (Vader, Yoda/Sidious, Asajj), but all had the side edges bent pretty bad. I carefully used an extended lightsaber to get about 12 off the top shelf (nudged them until they fell to me, one at a time), but those were damaged too... Also, I finally found the plush lightsaber there, and it was on clearance for $7, too. They only had the blue one - has anyone else seen them anywhere? I gave up loooking a while ago, figuring they never made it to the stores... now I need a red & green one. They're for my twin goddaughters and/or future kids.

Probably because they never have jack. At least it doesn't last long if they do.

Wal-Mart Glen Ellyn and Villa Park had the 51-52-53 wave up. They also had several AT-TE Gunners and both Red and Blue Guards as of about 8 this morning.

I managed to snag a few Red Shocktroopers at the Villa Park store. They were buried, so there may be a few more left. They're 2 per case now!

Can't wait to tell the wife we need another curio cabinet for my stuff! LOL There were more at the Villa Park one because the cashier told me some guy was just in there with and bought about 10 of them!

I was in River Oaks this afternoon and passed the Big K-Mart over there. I didn't even go in there first. I hit Walmart in hopes of finding a Shock Trooper but found nothing. Hit Toys R Us and they had AT-RT figures (the first ones, not the variant with the new painted helmet)and about 3 Clone Evolutions. Then on the way back to the expressway I said what the hell go and K-Mart and just what they have. Well they had 3 Jedi Temple sets and the other Sith one with the Emperor in it. I wanted to grab all three but at 26.99 a piece one is enough. So they are out there. GO get them boys before they're all gone.

I asked the the guy working in toys to check the back for it, and after about ten minutes of him looking he came back out empty handed. There is no Kmart by me that is very convenient, so I hope I find this eventually.

The Wal Mart in Bloomindale on Army Trail had about 10 each of 51-53, so if you're still looking for those head over there. They also had three At-Te Gunners burried in the pegs, as well as one red royal guard. Lots Bacarras and #50 Anakis too.

I was able to score a Target TIE Fighter this evening at the Touhy Target just before it closed.

Sure enough they had them, but he only pulled out the one for me. The Target TIE's come 2 to a case, so it's quite possible there's going to be at least 1 more TIE either sitting in the back or going on the floor either in the morning or sometime later in the weekend, so check em out if you're in need of a TIE.

The K-Mart in Forest Park had 3 of the Jedi Temple Assault Battle Packs this morning but some scumbag had removed all the 501st Clonetroopers and replaced them with all white ones. Many of them were loose in the package and it looks like the dirtbag tried to use scotch tape to secure them. Thanks for screwing your fellow collectors, a-hole.

The Wal-Mart next door had over 20 500th Vaders and some Jedi vs. Sith Battle Packs. Target in Broadview had the new large-wing Tie Fighters (3 still there when I left) and the new and improved collector cases. TRU near North Riverside Mall had the SOC (same old crap) except for a few new M&M plush characters.

Well that was a fun day. Thought I'd search for one more Jedi Temple set today since the little lady is visiting the grandparents. I hit 5 K-Marts before 5 pm and they all had nothing. I was beginning to think that Friday may have been the only day to get this thing. I have a feeling however that once they are gone it may be a while before we see new ones. Then I was driving down Kedize to get to I-55 to call it a day and saw another K-Mart. So what the hell, I go in, and there were enough Jedi Temple Sets to fill all the K-Marts I went to today. I've got $20 that says these things are all gone by tomorrow night. I grabbed one. But here's how this beautiful K-Mart exclusive will continue to give it to us in the a**. K-Mart stores don't have a set price for all their items. The Jedi Temple sets at the Big K on 5050 S. kedize are $27.99 and after tax come to $30 http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif I only paid $26. 49 at the K-Mart in River Oaks on Friday.

The Jedi Assult sets are not fully painted. They lack the blue stripe going down the side of the leg that the carded figure will have.

It has been noted that the last 12 carded figures will be $6.99 again. That makes over $21 if you wait to buy 3 later. My set was $24.99. I guess I really don't have a point with this last item......

I picked up the new TIE. Even though I [censored] about the price and it only has new wings...it looks really cool. I thought it would look out-of-place with Vaders, but it looks fine. If Target has these long enough for clearence I will probably buy another.

I really hope the Jedi Temple Assault ends up being shipped out in huge quantities. Then the guys who crawl out of their mother's basements will move on to something else. One of the K-Marts in Joliet had some, but one guy bought every one. >.< I am glad these use the No. 6 mold. I prefer that one to the No. 41 mold.

Don't waste your time going to that Big K on Kedzie that KIDD posted about unless you want 20 Throne Room Battle Packs. I got the last and only Jedi Temple set today about
2:00. Manager said a couple guys came in earlier and bought almost every one. Kmart by me on 83 in willowbrook is going through a reset and has no idea if they have already put them out and they sold, have them in the back or if they did have them in the back, where they would be. I even went in with a copy of the newest Lee's Action Figure Review with pics of their exclusives and no one had any idea what I was talking about! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

Well that was a fun day. Thought I'd search for one more Jedi Temple set today since the little lady is visiting the grandparents. I hit 5 K-Marts before 5 pm and they all had nothing. I was beginning to think that Friday may have been the only day to get this thing. I have a feeling however that once they are gone it may be a while before we see new ones. Then I was driving down Kedize to get to I-55 to call it a day and saw another K-Mart. So what the hell, I go in, and there were enough Jedi Temple Sets to fill all the K-Marts I went to today. I've got $20 that says these things are all gone by tomorrow night. I grabbed one. But here's how this beautiful K-Mart exclusive will continue to give it to us in the a**. K-Mart stores don't have a set price for all their items. The Jedi Temple sets at the Big K on 5050 S. kedize are $27.99 and after tax come to $30 http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif I only paid $26. 49 at the K-Mart in River Oaks on Friday. So if you guys want to buy more than one be prepared to shell out over $50 and maybe close to $100 for some clones. There is no justice. Also found a Sith Eyes Anakin.



So is anyone going to pay me that $20 http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif . I just knew those things would be gone. It just sucks that 2 guys got them. I'll be watching Ebay.

i'll cop to being responsible for two of those sets being sold.

last night, as of about 8:30, i'd say that few, if any, had been sold since the original announcement post.

when i first got to the aisle, there were only 2 jedi sets and about 6 throne room. i thought, "wow. they got cleaned out FAST!" but then i turned the corner and saw an entire endcap jammed with them. i think that, if anything, the guy who posted (sorry... i forgot your name) made a conservative estimate, or maybe they put more out. i didn't count, but there were a TON of them.

seeing that many, i began to wonder if maybe i'd jumped the gun a bit, and driven a little too far out of my way to pick up a couple sets. but now, knowing that a store with THAT many would sell out in a day makes me feel better about scrambling to get mine.

it was certainly an interesting trip, i'll say that. haven't been in that area in a long time.

but considering that WAY back in my old collecting days (early days of toybiz x-men), my local haunt was the venture on kostner, it seemed like old times.

it's really kind of amazing how much a decade in the suburbs can narrow your perspective when it comes to things like that.

Hey KIDD you are right for sure about the employees being nicer in the city. I live about 5-10 minutes from the Walmart and TRU on 75th and 2 Targets nearby and I don't even bother asking anyone for help anymore, usually they won't do it, have no idea what I'm talking about, or are plain just too lazy and say "everything we have is out". Well no, your scanner says yes there are more in the stockroom, here look. And then MAYBE they find something back there. I have resorted to hopping on 55 and stopping at Hodgkins WalMart and Target off of Lagrange and then going all the way to Pulaski and then down Cicero to Burbank and then thru Bridgeview to Orland Park, stopping at every Target, TRU, and Walmart along the way. Yeah, it takes a couple hours if you hit all the stores, but I never come back empty handed. I was one of the first to post about the Tarkin wave in the area when I found them at the Bridgeview Walmart and then I was also one of the first to find the Bacara wave at the same Walmart a month later. It's still the only place I've seen a Green Clone Commander too. And I got 51-56 at the Walmart in Bedford Park. And now I am the proud owner of a Jedi Temple Assault pack. I have had no problems with employees more than happy to help me.

In fact, when the manager at the Kedzie Kmart today said that a couple guys were there earlier, he said they asked him first if it was ok if they took them all. And he said you can buy as many as you want! And if you think about it, why wouldn't he? That's what I'll never understand about these stores out here in the burbs sitting on stuff in the back, like that Target that broctoon couldn't get a TIE from when they plainly had them listed as in the stockroom. Aren't you in the business of selling products to consumers? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

Yo Bro......

Well even though your're not a Bro a little kindness can go a long way. Didn't want to go to the Hood huh? Well not to sound like a echo of your insensitive ego but if you go anywhere in or on the fringes of Chicago proper you are in the hood. Just look for the gang grafitti. It doesn't matter where you live and I actually feel safer living in the heart of the city than in some of the burbs. I've been collecting for over twenty years and guess what? I see more white guys in the Toys R US on the Dan Ryan and WALMARTS grabbing the exclusives and hard to find figures when the doors open in stores located in the hood than people who look like me. Risk life and limb? Get a life. You're safer than we are.

Speaking of rolling the dice, did you hear about the shooting in the parking lot of the WALMART in Glendale Arizona last week? Nice community. Upscale, not in the ghetto or the hood but out of the blue some schitzo guy shoots two workers gathering carts. I was there looking for Clone Evolution sets that morning and four hours later...BAM. Could of been me putting toys in the trunk. So don't judge people based on where they live or what community a store happens to be located in. We don't fight, [censored], or sneer but comments like this one just might get an illusionary cap popped in some wisemouth's a**.

This is all very interesting seeing everyone going back and forth about this inner city subject. I've been a city boy all my life and the funny thing is that some people from the burbs think a certain way about the city. Example, When I first went to College and told people I actually lived in the city of Chicago, I [censored] you not, but they actually asked me if I carried a gun. I don't blame them for this, its just what they see on TV, the news and other factors. I can see where KIDD is coming from and I also here the arguments from others from the burbs. The truth of the matter is that it really doesn't matter where you go, danger is everywhere. Yeah, teens from the burbs go crazy and shoot their classmates and teachers. There are gang related crimes in the city nearly everyday. Hell, my parents just moved to Arizona and 2 men, a 18 kid and a 25 guy got shot in the parking lot of a Walmart by a 35 yr old Asian guy. This Walmart was in a township that is very close if not the same as Arlington Heights. (My mother joked that maybe these guys where taking all the Shock Troopers and Clone Evolutions sets and someone just had enough.) OK, bad joke, but it could happen. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

The truth of the matter is boys, it doesn't matter where you go, you have just as much a chance of getting robbed and killed in the city as you do in the burbs. It's just society makes you think that the city isn't safe anymore when in fact, it's not safe anywhere. KIDD, just know that people from the burbs think a certain way and that it's not always racial. And people from the burbs, realize that just because you are in the city around a bunch of Mexicans or African Americans, doesn't mean that they are going to try to jack you.

Have you guys on this board ever really stopped to think about what the other people posting on this board are like. If they are all white. If someone might be Asian or Black. If you live in the burbs, those individuals who shop in the city whether they be Brown, yellow, green or blue, don't go out of the house everyday thinking they are going to die. We dont' say, OK, Sunday morning toy hunt, I have to hit the burbs or I wont' be safe. If you have a family, I would hope you think about your safety everywhere you go. The funny thing about being in the city is that your safety isn't always on your mind because for years we've been locking our doors to our homes, etc. I have a great many friends now from bubble F**k Wisconsin, thanks to my time at Marquette, and I wont say that they are naive to leave their doors open, they just dont' worry about their personal safety because the burbs are "nice and safe". This is what we as a society have grown up hearing about on TV, in schools and what not. No where is safe. And what the hell, just in case someone from the burbs sees me and thinks they aren't safe, how about we all try to get to know one another alittle better. I'll get us started.

I'm a black male, 23 years of age with a degree in Marketing /Advertising from Marquette University. No I didn't play basketball I ran track for 1 year then became an Resident Assistant for 3 years. My best friends are white, who just happen to live on the North side of the city.

I have never fired a gun, my parents are about to celebrate 25 yrs. of marriage and wont be grandparents for atleast another 6 years. My girlfriend is white but that doesnt' matter to me, but to some it does. I've been collecting since I was in 7th grade. I lock all my doors at night, not because I think I live in a dangerous part of the city, I live the South Loop, I lock them because I know that no matter where I am, [censored] happens. You just have to hope that [censored] won't happen to you regardless of where you are going on any particular day.

Let's be friends again boys. If you see a tall, [censored], black guy in your neighborhood toy aisle, it could be The Darkness. (TheDarkness is a nickname that a Japanese friend of mine gave me.) http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

You know KIDD I was going to ask that question too! Your ride is slick. If you see Big Red (she's my truck) in a Target, Toys R Us, WALMART, KMART, etc. wave. I'm on a mission.

TIP of the day for JABBA: Drive a very nondescript vehicle, the more hoopty the better (dents, window that won't roll up all the way, rust spots, missing bumper, and don't forget the ceiling lining that hangs and touches the tops of your passenger's heads. Not only will they not shoot at you they'll probably ask you if it's for sale. You can pocket the money and add to your collection. Now this doesn't happen often with us collectors (selfish as we are) BUT if you find that elusive figure you've been chasing all around town and there's a little kid in the store looking at the Star Wars toys, give it to him. He won't know why but you will have done a good deed. Hmmmmmmm....this could be your redeeming moment.

I'm in Vegas now and missed the Jedi Temple sets in and around Chicago that obviously were beyond plentyful so I'll be on the lookout here when I get a chance. Gotta pay the bills....all play and no workie make for unhappy toy collecting.

Wal Mart on Meecham has three of the new Jedi vs. Separtists sets on the shelf right now. Not sure if anyone is interested in these, but I passed.

As far as collecting, I was checking in to state that I checked the Wheaton Target, ST Charles Super Target, and STC Walmart over the weekend and nothing new.

Took a chance at the rarely mentioned K-Mart in Wicker Park on Ashland and found some jedi temple sets. After I grabbed one there was one left as of 1:30 pm today... and three Emporer's Throne Room sets (who cares).

TRU at Roscoe and Western had 6 Jedi V Sith (with armored Obi)sets as of about 1:00 pm today

Target on Elston had ZILCH

Is the Jedi V Separatist (with Jango & Maul) set out yet? Im starting to get all these battle packs all confused. THAT one actually has several new figs (mostly head swaps but cool nonetheless).

I'll leave the Jabba comments to speak for him, but it is sad to see that one can be so shallow in this day and age. It is not just caucasian suburban males who collect and enjoy Star Wars, so maybe you should watch what you say.

Anyhow, the word is the Kmart on 50th & Kedzie got the better part of a pallet of these Jedi Temple sets. They had a bunch on the overstock wall above the Barbies last night after 7PM. My guess is they got a pallet shipped by mistake that should have gone all around the district, but ended up in the "hood" instead of suburbia.

Went back today and they were all gone. I counted 30 JTA yesterday at 7pm, so they are gone and there are probably 60 or more Imperial throne room sets there as of this morning!

Once again, a thank you to KIDD for the heads up on these as I got one to open and two for trade thanks to him.

The Target in Evanston had two Tie Fighters located in the remote controll car aisle. Funny that they weren't located with the other Star Wars items. There were no price tags for these things so it looks like the stock people just put them where there was empty space. I didn't feel like spending $40 on it even though I have a feeling I should have. Will this thing become hard to find like the Target exclusive Y-Wing back in 2001?

Oh yeah, the Kmart on Kedize had one more Jedi Temple set today. It wasn't on the end cap where the others where, it was located with all the other Star Wars items on the bottom with the Imperial Throne Room sets. I left it there so I'm not sure if it's still there. No one seems to look at those sets so it may be.

WalMart 75th in Darien had New Titanium's. They are not located next to the other SW stuff but in the aisle where all of the die cast cars are(one over and on same side as the figs). They had the ARC fighter, Naboo Starfighter, Tie Bomber, Landspeeder, and Swamp thingy.
As for the figs, they did have some of the ATRT drivers, crispy anakins, SA clones, 1 Mustofar Sentry but no repaints. I also saw some Asajj unleashed, but did not check the rest. It seems as though they just restocked the Unleashed(I dont collect em so I did not look through em).

Target on 63rd in Downers grove has nothing new as of this morning. Just a couple of 500th Vaders. Kmart on route 83 has absolutely nothing. Looks like they are remodeling so I don't expect them to have anything anytime soon.

I am still looking for both Clone and Sith Evolution sets. I am not sure if the Joliet area has gotten either. Does anyone know if Target has been receiving these? I know Wal-Mart and TRU have been getting em.

Well I have one and I think it sucks. The Emperor looks like he is taking a crap and he is wearing grany house shoes. Dooku is ok, and the Maul is ok. Once I opened it I put all the figures back in box and sat it in the corner. I'd rather have spent my money on food.

I got it a few weeks ago in Arizona. I posted it about 2 or three weeks ago on the Chicago board even though it wasn't a Chicago find. I'm not saying it's the worst thing ever, the ROTS Deluxe Emperor and number 35 Palpatine are worse then this. It's just not what I'd hope. I think #13 Dooku is a better figure so I only got one good thing which was the Darth Maul. I guess I can use the Dooku for display purposes sense both of his hands are removable, I can get an Anakin, put two light sabers in his hands and cut the old farts head off. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Realizing this is a little late, but this AM at opening I found the Jedi Temple and Throne Room Battle Packs at the Bloomingdale K Mart. There were 3 of each, $26.49. I took one of the Jedi Temple sets and left the other two but a guy that came in after me was looking for them too so they're probably gone. I passed on the Throne Room sets so if anyone is looking for those they might still be there.

Anyone in the vicinity of Joliet may want to cgeck the K-Mart on Jefferson St and Larkin Ave. It's been getting the Temple Assault and Imperial throne battle Packs. Further, the price tage and scanner say 24.99, the sticker on the shelf says 21.99, but the packs ultimately ring up at 14.99. I am thinking it somehow ended up under the 40% off sale on clearence items.

Question. Does anyone else collect the Clone Wars Character Keys? I have the General Grievous from Comic Con and my Obi-Wan from the StarWarsshop just arrived in the mail. These are no where near as great as the Clone Wars Persona Hand Painted Cels but still are nice display pieces. Anyone else into these? If so does anyone have an extra Yoda Character Key that was exclusive to CIII?

Made a short run while waiting for Best Buy to open.

South loop Target had a bunch of Boba Fett Target exclusive cups. Probably about 4 or 5. Lots of Han and Yoda too.

Target in Melrose Park had three White clone 3 packs.

Someone seems to have crushed the bubble a bit on the three packs. I looked at them and popped the bubble back out and they don't look too bad. Hate those scumbags that damage cards and bubbles just because they can't afford them and they don't want anyone else to get them.

TRU Golf Mill had at least 10-15 Hoth Battle Packs at $24.99. Also looked like the new unleashed had been there as there was 1 Vader on a banged up card. Got the only 2 Red Clone 3-packs from Target Golf Mill. They also had 2 each of the new Emperor and Yoda Force Battlers. They also had the new unleashed, 2 Vaders and 3 Emperor/Yodas.

TRU Melrose park had the Mustafar Sentry wave. About 7-8 Sentrys, a bunch of Obi-Wan #55's, and a few Bacaras and #50 Anakin. No ATRT Drivers or clone repaints. No sign of the Hoth Battle pack either. Hasbro has not changed the picture on the back of the Hoth pack either. It still shows the Vintage ATAT Commander! Crazy huh? Oh yeah, nothing at Walmart Northlake either...

Good Luck!

About an hour before closing, KB Toys in Fox Valley had an entire wall of the latest wave of #54-56, but the assortment with no clone repaints http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif The most AT-RT Drivers I've seen in one place yet, at least 10-15 of them, all with the correct paint job. At least the same amount of Mustafar Sentrys and scattered #41 Clones, Bacaras, and Crispy Anakin. There should be a ton there tomorrow if you're in the area and feel like paying $6.99 a pop.

Long time lurker, first time poster!

Haven't seen a whole lot lately, but I just got back from Michigan, and did see the Chewbacca/Han Solo Wave of Jedi Force figures at a Meijer.

I did manage to find some Black Clone Piots & an AT-RT Driver last week, along with the 3rd Wave of Force Battlers. Now if I can just find the 4th Wave of Force battlers, the #6 repaint & #56+ I'll be happy.

I've been out of town in Iowa (NOTHING good out there!), but before I left I snagged two Clone Evolutions last Friday at the Target on Higgins. It was weird 'cause I thought the Sith set came in the same case, but they only had two Anakins and two Clones sitting on the shelf right at opening. I wonder how that happened.

It's a great set, and the only letdowns for me are the lack of waist articulation on the Episode II Clone, and the pilot helmet being a little oddly shaped. Other than that, it's awesome!
