Hey there. I went to the Colonie Taget last night. I his a TIE Fighter, a 500th Vader, a Deluxe Clone 3 pack, and a Jet Pack Clone in the matchbox aisle. It's the ailse right next to the star wars aisle. I hid them behind a hot wheels car wash, on the bottom shelf. Hopefully they are still there.

I just found the Utapaun Warrior, ATRT Driver (white face), Pilot Obi Wan, Destriyer Droid, and Obis Wans Starfighter at the East Greenbush Wal Mart. The other day I came across the 3 pack of white clones and the new TIE FIghter at the Colonie Target.

Nice work. Did I tell you that the best time to hit Wal mart was on monday? The best time to hit TRU is on sunday, or on wednesday. And the best time to hit Target is on Sunday, first thing in the morning. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif
Oh, I found the ATRT driver, Destroyer Droid, Obi wans starfighter, and the Neimoidian Warrior at the EG Wal MArt on friday. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

No. I don't even collect anymore. I just like to see what new stuff is out. I get the bounty hunters, that's it. And I'm now hiding stuff for Lady_Jaye, because she is in the area. If you let me know what you are looking for, I'll hide it when I see it. And I'll let you know where it is. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Lots of finds last night. I found the Clone Evolutions (with the sandtrooper), and Anakin (sith eyes) at the Target in EG. I also found the Hoth Battle Pack at the Colonie TRU, there were a bunch of them, as well as the Red Clone, and the super articulated white clone trooper. Keep in mind, I'm not buying any of these, I'm just looking out for you guys. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif There's gotta be more Albany collectors out there other than just LordGreco and myself. Where are you guys? Or girls? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Maybe you "city folk" oughta come further north and hit the Plattsburgh Wal-Mart...I just picked up Comm. Gree and Comm Bly...they had the two Seperatists, Wookie grunts...but no Special Ops, or holograms...oh well, I only want the Special Ops trooper anyways...

Plattsburgh! That's no mans land! I went to the Colonie Target last night, the one where I his some figs and the TIE for you guys. Don't worry, they're still there. Good thing for us, that Target employees are lazy! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Just for the record, we don't keep ourselves warm with sheep in Plattsburgh...I've heard the rumors. It may be no mans land...but at least I've got a Bly and Gree. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Hee Hee. I was just kidding, one of my friends went to SUNY Plattsburgh. I visited a couple of times. Well, if you got a hold of Bly and Gree up there. I'd like to think that they will show up down here soon. Albany may be a city, bits it's a small one, especially for a capital! The proper pronunciation is small -bany. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Lucky, oh well I have no money anyhow!! But hopefully when I do have some, they'll be on the pegs or hidden thanks to DEC!!! I'm hoping that second Evo is still hiddenn!!

10-01-2005, 06:27 PM
You're one lucky sob to find a 501st...that's the only one I didn't find...and I've been back to wal-mart like 4 times since...Passel and Cat are still sitting on the pegs though. I did pick up another AT-RT driver for a custom I was inspired to do.

10-03-2005, 06:23 AM
Greco, the ATRT and the Hoth Battle Pack were at the Colonie TRU. That was last friday, I'm sure the Hoth Battle pack is still there, there was at least 10 of them. Good luck guys!

I found the AT-TE wave restocked at my Wal-Mart yesterday...picked up another gunner to customize...the head sculpt sucks, but I love the removable helmet idea. Now to figure out what to do with him, my quick draw, and #41 clones...any ideas?

Thanks,

Dre

BobaMOTSU
10-05-2005, 10:37 AM
I don't customize. But I'd say to try to make a "saber" battle damaged clone. That'd be neat! Have a hole in his chest where you can impale him with a saber! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/ooo.gif

Hi everybody. I just wanted to introduce myself as a fellow figure collector who lives in Albany. Great thread! I'm delighted to be a part of it!!! While I do not make trips to the stores often, when I do, I go to Target, TRU & Walmart. At the Crossgates KB, a very nice manager-type guy who works during the weekdays (not evenings) offered to take my name, phone no. & a list of my figure "wants" to help me get some of them as they come in. So, I gave him a list. I haven't heard back from him yet, but I thought I'd let you know about his kind offer. Also, Kohl's on Central (while expensive) has been known to carry many of the lower numbered ROTS figures that people sometimes can't find elsewhere. A couple of weeks ago I found a stormtrooper evolutions set (the one with the "sprayed on dirt" storm/sandtrooper) at the Washington Ave. Extension Walmart. They have a ton of the 500th Vaders too, if anyone is looking for one. All of you may know these things already, but I wanted to let you know what I knew just in case you didn't. I'm still searching for the Red Shocktrooper, Dooku, C-3PO, Bly, and the 501st Tactical Ops guy. They'll turn up...I think...maybe. Anyway, I'm glad to see that Albany is represented and I look forward to speaking with you fine folks much more.

>>>By the way, I choose to be represented as Snaggletooth as he was the only figure I didn't have for a long time during the good ol' days when I was a kid. I had was this label that said Snaggletooth for my Vader Case of figures and one empty slot for the little guy. Everytime we would go to the store, I'd look through all the figures they had (and there were many!). I searched for him for quite some time (it seemed like months). And then one day...there he was. I was so happy to have found him. Given that this thread is about the hunt for figures we want, I thought he should be remembered...despite his creepy looks!

LordGreco
10-16-2005, 07:47 PM
nice to see you here Bdog, post some status reports on what you find!

bdog228
10-18-2005, 01:57 PM
Hi folks. Over the weekend, I saw the green clone commander and pilot Kenobi, along with a ton of other harder to find figures at Super Walmart, out by Lowe's. I didn't see any of the ones I'm looking for, but I thought I'd pass on the news. Also, they are not figures, but I found "figure-like" ornaments in the holiday section near lawn & garden. I picked up a vader, boba fett, & c-3po. They also had Yoda & R2. They look like they are made of plastic. They seem pretty neat and are $4.97. Talk to you later!

BobaMOTSU
10-18-2005, 01:59 PM
I'm going to the EG super Wal Mart to see if i can get some. Hey bdog228, I saw Plo Koons starfighter at the EG Target the other day. There was a bunch of them. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

BobaMOTSU
10-19-2005, 07:41 AM
Has anyone seen the 501st clone, or the Tarkin wave at all? I'm just curious if anyone has seen them yet. I know that the Plattsburgh kid got Cody and Gree. But what about the others?

DarthDre758
10-19-2005, 10:52 AM
I know that the Plattsburgh kid got Cody and Gree. But what about the others?


I'm 26, and married...far from a kid. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif
And I'd be the luckiest collector in the world if I found a Cody.

I saw Tarkin and the Mon Cal senator(name escapes me) at my local K-Mart about a week ago, was gonna pick up Tarkin, but...he pretty much sucks as a figure. I'd use him as custom fodder anyway. I haven't seen the new 12 since I posted finding them. And I've been looking too. I have seen a few Temple Assualt battle packs, but havne't had $25 to drop on it at the time. Wish I did, I coulda used a 501st in a custom. But any ways...I'm gonna try to make a trip to the big scary city in a week or so. Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks

10-19-2005, 10:55 AM
Sorry. I stand corrected. Try the TRU in Colonie when you come down. There's TONS of Wal MArts in the area also. I don't know how much hunting you want to do while you are here.

DarthDre758
10-19-2005, 12:17 PM
I hunt as much as possible. My signifigant other doesn't seem to mind too much. Besides, we have a 5 year old to shop for, and nothing makes his day better than a new Star Wars figure. I'll hit the TRU in Colonie, any notion about the Clifton Park Target? I go there quite a bit, my wife loves Target.

Thanks for the info.

Dre

BobaMOTSU
10-19-2005, 12:27 PM
I didn't know you were willing to go that far. Well then, here's your wonderful choices that the city has for you.
Target; Clifton Park, East Greenbush, Colonie.
Wal Mart; East Greenbush, Crossgates Commons, Brunswick, Clifton Park, Latham Farms.
TRU; Clifton Park and Colonie.
Good luck! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Hey guys, my name is Brian. I've been a collector for almost ten years now. Currently, I'm working at the TRU in Colonie (which has not gotten anything new in really except for the Rebellion vs. Empire Battle Pack and the Jedi vs. Seperatist Battle Pack). I am currently hunting for all of the Final 12.

BobaMOTSU
10-20-2005, 07:15 AM
Hey Brian. I saw a bunch of the Hoth Battel PAck a couple of weeks ago. I also saw the ATRT trooper and Bacara. I take it they are considered "new" anymore. Let us know if anything new comes in please. Thanks alot. Glad to add you to the ranks.

bdog228
10-20-2005, 12:38 PM
Good to have you Brian. Funny. Two Brians have joined the Albany crew in less than a week. My name is also Brian!

By the way, I saw that Target has those figure ornaments too (and at a cheaper price--$3.99).

BobaDEC--thanks for the tip on the Starfighter!

BobaMOTSU
10-20-2005, 01:02 PM

Well, tomorrow is pay day for me, and I'll be getting one hell of a paycheck... are there any specific places where you've guys seen some of the Final 12?

BobaMOTSU
10-21-2005, 06:22 AM
I haven't seen them anywhere yet. I have seen Plo Koons starfighter at the Target in EG, along with the Red Clone 3 pack.

GamorreanGuard
10-21-2005, 10:58 PM
Well, I managed to get Commander Bly, Commander Gree, and the Wookiee Commando at the TRU that I work at. It figures that they restock on days that I'm off. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

I'll be doing some more hunting tomorrow... I'll let you guys know what I turn out with.

Hi. This is a question for Brian. I read that the holographic emperor has been found at a midwest TRU. Do you know if your TRU has this figure in stock yet? Thanks!

10-29-2005, 03:53 AM
If you travel to my TRU today (Saturday, October 29, 2005), I can guarantee you that your trip will not have been a waste.

We got four cases of them in last night. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Guys, when someone tells you a store got a shipment in, you don't stand around asking questions. Get there ASAP! Good luck guys. If I get there today, maybe I'll hide some for everyone. I think there's about 5 in the forum now.

I found Commander Gree and Meena Tills at the Crossgates Commons Wal Mart on Tuesday. I also found them at the East Greenbush Wal Mart last night.

Hey fellas, the Plattsburgh Kid is back.

I got home from a trip in your direction this weekend, the wife and I spent some time away from...well...everything. I hit the Clifton Park Target and found nothing new to me. I hit the TRU there and didn't see too much special. I finally got to the Colonie TRU and found a Holo Emperor, Obi Wan fighter w/figure, and the Falcon re-release...didn't get the Falcon, but snagged the other two. I'm hoping to get down there again before xmas to get some shopping done...for others, not just me.

Hey all. Sunday at the EG Target I found the Jedi Temple Assault 5 pack, the Lava Reflection Obi Wan (no Anakin, they separated the figs), the new Mustafar Sentry, and Plo Koons Starfighter. I've still yet to encounter a 501st trooper or Bly. Has anyone found the Target Shadow Trooper yet?

BobaMOTSU
11-16-2005, 05:34 AM
Hey all. I went to the Colonie TRU last night and saw about 5 of Obi Wans Jedi Starfighter. It's ok. There was some old guy there looking for Battlefront 2 figures. He said that they were on page 52 in the catalog. I told him that there was no such thing. I told him there was a game, and showed him all of the ROTS figures. Poor guy, he seemed pretty confused. Probably for his grandson. Hey Gamorrean Guard, where were you with the info on the starfighter? So much for having someone on the inside. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

I'm not sure if people would like to know this, but I have some new info on the SW figure ornaments that I first saw at Walmart for $4 and some change. Target has them for 3.99 and to my amazement...the CHRISTMAS TREE SHOPS has them for 2.99 without the packaging. They are not plastic. I think they are ceramic. Never thought I'd see them there with all of the other ornaments. Interesting.

Gree and Barc are all over now. I just saw a bunch of them at the EG Wal mart on friday. We were up at 3:00, and done shopping at 10:30. we did awesome! I also saw anakins and obi wans jedi starfighters at the FYE (the one upstairs by the thearers) in Crossgates.

Hey Gamorrean. I was at the Colonie TRU at 5:00 on friday. Holy crazy busy! Picked up some good stuff for my neices and nephews. Oh, I also found a TON of the new Unleashed Battle Packs at the Latham Farms Wal Mart yesterday.

BobaMOTSU
11-30-2005, 04:51 AM
Yeah, yeah I know. Double post. Hey everyone. Last night I found tons of new figures at the East Greenbush Wal Mart. They had the 501st, holo Aayla and Koon, the new red R2 unit, the Wookie heavy gunner and Meena Tills. No sign of Tarkin though, still yet to see him.

DarthDre758
11-30-2005, 07:31 AM
Hey fellas,

I was at my Wal-Mart here in good ol' P-burgh and saw a lone Unleashed Battle pack(Utapau battle w/Obi, Cody & Grevious) on the shelf. I looked high and low but couldn't see any others. I didn't pick it up because as I looked at it...well...it looked crappy. The sabers were all warped, the sculpting was sub-par, and Obi looked like he was constipated. They ceased the regular Unleashed line for this? What a crock.

That's the last real new thing I've seen around here for quite some time now. I'm actually depressed about it. It's X-mas time for christs sake!!

12-03-2005, 02:48 PM
Yeah, yeah. Double post, I know. Just got back from the EG Target. There were TONS, I mean TONS of Utapau Shadow Troopers, and lava obi wans and Anakin. There was a encap with about 10 figures on it. And on the top shelf, above the star wars aisle, i could see no less than 25 more case/boxes of the figures. I can describe the Shadow Trooper in two words: AWE SUM!!!!!!!!!!!

Latham Walmart- 2 Count Dooku's! 2 Ki adi mundis one royal guard a tarkin and a R4, and a couple separation of the twins
Colonie Toysrus- one gree, TONS of SA Clone Troopers, 2 plo Koons and some agen kolars and a bunch of peg warmers!

I went tot eh EG Wal Mart this morning. I found Tons of the Separation of the Twins, a couple of Tarkins, and a bunch of Red Gaurds. This is the first time that I have seen Tarkin anywhere. Personally, I think the Tarkin and the Separation of the Twins are lame. Leia looks like a little boy, and Luke looks like a little girl.
I went to the EG Wal Mart last night (the 8th) and saw tons of the Clone Wars (animated) 3 pack figures. They're pretty cool. They're in a section over by the bikes and Batman stuff.

Hey all. I made it out to the Crossgates Commons Wal Mart on saturday. They had the new choppers, Transformers, Legos, and 1 Saga Bib Fortuna. Some slob took the holo figure out of Fortunas card. I also went to the EG Wal Mart, they had the new Legos and Unleashed Battle Packs. I picked up the new Slave I Lego. Awesome! It's completely different from Jango's AOTC Slave I. It has different weapons, and comes with more figs too. My wife wasn't too happy that I spent $50 on a Lego though.

01-11-2006, 10:09 AM
Lucky guys you are...I haven't seen any of the new Saga line. Hell, I'm still trying to find a Comm Bly for my son, before he steals mine. =) I was lucky and got a Gunship and a ARC-170 for X-mas. I put my old speeder in the back of the Gunship, making it look ready for combat. I wish I could find another one, cause then I'd do custom of it.

Happy Hunting

Why don't you look in the classifieds section here? People are always selling stuff, including me. I think I already sold my only AT-AT Driver, I'll take a look for you. I saw the new SW Transformers yesterday at the EG Wal Wart. I saw on the Boba Fett Fan Club site, that there will be a new Boba Fett Transformer coming out in spring.

DarthDre758
01-18-2006, 10:05 AM
It finally happened...our Wal-Mart restocked!! I found the entire first wave in the Saga line. The only one I really wanted at the time though was Boba Fett. Luckily enough there was one left on the pegs. He's cool and all...but what is up with the continuation of the 'action features'? I thought Hasbro was through with that after the Ep III fiasco! Anyways...he looks *****in' standing next to his dad on my shelf. Keep the info flowing guys...

Man talk about weird. I went to the East Greenbush Rite Aid yesterday to pick up a prescription. There was a line, so as my wife waited in line ( http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif) I made my way over tot he toy aisle. There were new Saga figures there! I couldn't believe it. There was Han in Carbonite, Leia as Boushh, and Bib Fortuna. Not the best selection, but I was stunned nonetheless. The really strange thing is that the East Greenbush Wal Mart still has no sign of new figures yet. Actually I lie, there are a bunch of empty pegs with the UPS on them, but no figures. Good luck everyone!

I'm telling you guys, you need to make a trip to the great frozen white north. I've seen both the Tatooine and Hoth waves here in numbers. I've picked up Boba Fett and the Snow Trooper. I've already mangled one Boba for a custom I'm attempting. The Snow Trooper is cool looking, but the articulation sucks. If I can find another of him I'm definatly making a Galactic Marine outta him. Good luck in the big bad city!

Other than SW figs, what else does the "great frozen white north" offer?

If you guys are looking for the Hoth wave, Target in Colonie had a lot. Same with Kay-Bee in Colonie Center.

My TRU only has the Carkoon wave.

But no Utapau!! I hate it!! Albany always get's skunked when it comes to new figures!!

Oh and the only TRU in Albany is a scalpers haven!! I went in on Thursday and they had taken all the Super Skrulls and left all the buster FF figures!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif I bet it was one guy too!!

I remember when the Lava Vader came out, I was there at one of the Targets and met a scalper!! He was a young guy, not your usual scalper!! He was smug that he sold his figures on ebay!! I so wanted to give him a good kick in the you know where! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif If I see him tommorrow, might do that!!

I found the Hoth Wave at the EG Wal Mart on Wednesday. They also have a lot of the wave 1 TFs and a whole endcap of those lame Choppers.

The Marvel Legends collectors/scalpers at the Colonie TRU are nuts. I get at least 10 calls a night from them seeing if we got new ones in. Its crazy.

I just got back from the EG Target. All they had was the Hoth wave, and a ton of the new Unleashed Battle Packs.
*Edit*
03/06/06 I found the Geonosis wave at the EG Wal Mart. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

alright Lady Jaye sent me a pm and i don't really feel like typing it over again so i'll post it here. Its the Target In MOhawk Commons and its right on Grand Boulevard, right by Fuccilo i believe, you can't miss it, it's in with the lowes, price chopper and all that good stuff and i get tons of stuff because the only people that come there are little kids and they don't make the better choices. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Too far for me. So don't consider me a threat. I miss the Media Play that used to be there. I got a really awesome Gundam Wing shirt from there about 5 years ago.

Hey fellas, how is it in the big city? I've found, so far, Cody, Utapau clones(yes plural), Foul Mon-whatever his name is...a Scorch or two, AND the entire Vintage line. I only picked up a couple of the Speeder Bike Troopers, they were the only ones I was interested in. Hope the hunt goes well soon for you guys!

ummm... he's sick
my best friend's brother's girlfriend knows this guy, who knows this kid, who saw ferris pass out at 31 flavors last night.
guess its pretty serious.
word on the street is he's hanging out with a [censored] named smokey who found the new 30th anv figures at k-marts in clifton park and rotterdam yesterday.
wave 1, all but lava miner and mcquarrie stormtrooper.
the galactic marine is pretty sweet.
if u have the means, i highly recommend picking one up
or five =)
happy hunting!!!

Went to the Catskill Wal-Mart since I live in Greene County now....still work in Albany so keep me posted Mr. Roper! Anyways....Found all of Wave 3 at the WM there!! I was shocked because I haven't seen any of Wave 2 yet.

DarthDre758
06-04-2007, 03:03 PM
That's the same thing I thought. WM here not only put out Wave two...but Wave three as well! WTF!? I haven't seen a restock in months and we get it all at once. Was I happy. VOTC is here too...it's easy pickins as of right now.

Nothing new? Waiting for my local Wally world to restock. Literally down to about 12 figures. KB has been a hot spot for me with the newer waves. Checking again tomorrow.
