OK, the old thread (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=1583981&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1&vc=1) was close to 500 so I started a new one.
Here is the new Cody list. Hopefully we will start crossing off some more names soon.

Hey Flacks, thanks for putting me on the list.

I have not been able to look for figures much recently. The few times I have been out, I havent seen anything.

Anakin21
03-23-2006, 08:50 PM
Hey Flacks thanks for the add. I actually got a case from EE thats supposed to have 2 Codys. Will let you know when it arrives and who the lucky recipient of the extra one is.

VeryLaZ

Hey Flacks, you cant take me off the list. Have one coming my way thanks to a friend.

Now all I need are some UGH figures...

I see you guys are having no luck with UGH or Walmart. what the hell is up?

MisterKenobi
03-23-2006, 10:11 PM
I'm keeping my eyes peeled for a restock. I still need another Cody and one more U Clone. I sure hope he gets to be more plentiful, because I'd love to see Cody pegwarm!

03-24-2006, 04:25 AM
i have a u clone if you want. i'd like to trade but i don't mind helping out a fellow collector.

Pellaeon
03-24-2006, 09:12 AM
Fellas, I have an extra Scorch and Orange Clone if anyone here needs one.

Anyone have any further luck with UGH yet? Looking to get Cody, Scorch, Snowtrooper, and AT-AT Driver from that set.

Hit Glen Burnie Target and Wal-Mart this morning at open....nadda, it was funny some schmuck tried to outrun me to the Star Wars section in Target, all i could do is laugh.

Went to 3 Targets and 1 Walmart today. One of the Walmarts (PM me for location) is doing a HUGE toy restock as I am typing this. I had a nice employee let me open 2 cases of star wars. I was so excited because I had never opened a case before. Strangely, the two cases contained: R2-D2,Power droid, Snow Troopers, AT-AT Pilots, Veers, Vader, Boba Fett, Chewbacca and ONE Utapau Clone. I have previously never heard of a case like this. Well needless to say I was a little dissapointed in not finding Cody but I did pick up 2 Utapau Clones. They're up for trade or sale if anyone still needs one. PM me. Good luck!

Flacksguy
03-24-2006, 01:51 PM
I found the exact same case assortment this morning. It seems we're getting nothing but the refresh cases. I picked up one Clone, thats it.

We can't even find the regular Cody http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

03-24-2006, 01:56 PM
I really thought I hit the jackpot this morning. I was looking forward to 2 Codys after seeing those cases this morning.

Glassman6
03-24-2006, 03:14 PM
I saw the same assortment with chewie at 2 targets... I thought i just missed out on the rest of the figs.
Oh well, glad to know cody didnt show their yet, I'll keep looking for you guys! Im still looking for kenobi from the new wave.

VeryLaZ
03-24-2006, 06:03 PM
The Target in Middle River had this same wave hit today/yesterday.

PM sent Camaro!

MisterKenobi
03-24-2006, 09:04 PM
My Target restocked this morning, as luck would have t - the one morning I didn't come in at open for work. I missed Cody this time, but scored all the rest of the wave I wanted to open.

I must be living in some sort of Twilight Zone here.
Wal-Mart had the pegs overflowing this morning, but it was all the GEONOSIS WAVE!!!!
I guess I can just forget about that store for about a month, those Poggles and Sun Fac's are going to clog the pegs forever.

VeryLaZ
03-25-2006, 09:06 AM
Wal Mart here yieled different results this morning for me, and Target had some goodies as well...

Finally found some UGH figures, a fellow collector beat me to a Firspeeder Pilot, and UGH Cody...this was what was left, he was kind enough to offer me one of his Firespeeder, but this was already gonna cause a dent in my wallet...

http://img97.imageshack.us/img97/8690/dscf00023eh.th.jpg (http://img97.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dscf00023eh.jpg)

Scored an UGH Fett, Obi, Anakin, Snowtrooper, and AT AT Driver.

CamaroJedi
03-25-2006, 09:35 AM
Found Grievous this morning along with an extra Scorch. A fellow collector (hopefully, still waiting for confirmation) beat me to some UGHs, Cody and Firespeeder, but its ok, there'll be other days to hunt.

VeryLaZ
03-25-2006, 09:44 AM
Lol, yeah, that was me Camaro...nice to put a face to the name.

I was also beaten out by another collector just minutes before I got there as well on some figs. Timing is everything, not to mention alot of luck...

CamaroJedi
03-25-2006, 09:57 AM
This morning was the first time I've actually been able to make it to a Target early in the morning. You are right though, its all timing and a whole lot of luck. Nice to actually see a fellow MD Scummer.

VeryLaZ
03-25-2006, 11:41 AM
Both Targets, Toys R Us, and Wal Mart in Bel Air had nothing today... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Flacksguy
03-25-2006, 07:26 PM
Awww, man.
I used to have a couple extra Target Clones, got rid of them all except for one loose.
What Droids are you looking for?
R1-G4 perhaps? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif or Battle Droids?

The wife wanted to go to Leesburg today, so I was able to check a Wal-Mart and Target there, and another Target in Chantilly. Found only Geonosis and refresh cases.
I've seen Scorch in every store I went to today, I'm actually sick of seeing him now.

Targets I went to all had Geonsis or Hoth refresh waves. No sign of any clones or UGH figures though. Stupid UGH is gonna keep me busy for weeks. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

Pellaeon
03-26-2006, 09:19 AM
Well Gaithersburg RIO had 3 UGH figures. Fett, Solo (dinged up), and the Snowtrooper. The Vader was the only one missing http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

jabbasnot
03-26-2006, 10:14 AM
pellaeon, got your message. pm'ed you back. scored 6 more UGH this morning. 14 total. they're not all for me. no UGH cody's, though. that seems to be what everyone wants. some of the bubbles were crushed all to hell. worse i've ever seen. i'm going for 1 of each. i'm gonna try to get all 12 holos. don't know how that'll work. once i get those i'll just sell my extras rather than trade.

Flacks, tell me more about that droid.

WILL TRADE: UGH:han/luke, at-at/maul, snow/maul, boba/emp, cody/clone. also have regular cody's and fire pilot.
STILL NEED UGH-scorch, grievous UGH holos- amidala, yoda, obi, and han. more in my sig.

03-27-2006, 01:33 PM

Looks like Rio target is the place to be Saturday mornings... Too bad i'm an hour away on weekends.

Towson and Columbia restocked. I was able to get a firespeeder pilot! Yippie! This is the first of the recent wave I was able to find. I am not able to get to a Target before noon most days, since I have to be at work by 8:00am. Hopefully WalMart will get the UGH in soon. Wait, nope never mind... Ya know, I still haven't seen a Scorch on the pegs as of yet... Stupid job! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Oh man that really blows! I can definately say it was not me, I dont travel outside the Gaithersburg/Germantown area for figures, except for maybe Rockville/Wheaton on very rare occasions. On that note, stopped by RIO, natta.

Are you 100% positive that they HAVE cases in the back?

VeryLaZ
03-28-2006, 09:39 PM
I dont think you can ever be 100% sure, but when you use a price checker, and it comes up with...

In Backroom: Yes

Or something of that nature...your chance of knowing for sure is def. higher.

I find if you just ask to check, or tell them it shows items in the back they will usually look for you.

CamaroJedi
03-28-2006, 09:48 PM
Yes the price scanner said that they were in the stock rooms. THey just put a refresh case on the pegs so I didnt want to bug them because they woulda told me they were just put out. I'm gonna check tomorrow at 8. I'll chime in later if I find anything.

Every evening I have been checking the Wal-Marts, K-Marts, Toys'R'Us, and Target from Hagerstown to Martinsburg and have yet to find anything. Are any local scummers able to tell me if this is a bad area for figures and I am wasting my time?

The whole DC area has been bad lately, we aren't getting the new wave for some reason.

Anakin21
03-29-2006, 08:36 AM
My Target put out a refresh case (probably yesterday). Drought continues in NoVA. Anyone know if the refresh cases contain UGH figures??? Im guessing they don't.

Targets-Gburg/Gtwon ..Walmart Gtown....NATTA For some reason this refresh case came along just in time to screw up the UGH !

CamaroJedi
03-29-2006, 12:17 PM
Well I went to the Target that I previously posted that showed that they had at least one case of SW in the stockroom. I overslept a little bit so I got there at 8:25. I then proceeded to the toy isle. I saw that there was a rather large Hotwheels guy looking through the cars. He then looked up and we made eye contact. All of a sudden, he ran (or at least as fast as his 300 lb body could take him) to the SW section and quickly rummaged through before I could get to them. He emerged with 2 annonymous figs in his grubby hands. I then arrived at the SW isle and found that they restocked Coruscant. My heart skipped a beat because I saw that they had a Firespeeder pilot, which I have previously never seen on the pegs. I looked throughout the pegs for at least one Cody or UGH but I didn't find him. That son of a b!tch fat ***** hotwheels collector picked up the only 2 Codys so he could probably sell them on ebay. He ended up walking/waddling away with 2 Codys and 6 hotwheels cars in one hand and a box of Oscar Meyer bacon in the other hand.

It really pisses me off when Hotwheels collectors buy SW figs mainly for profit. I really really wanted to kick that guy in the nuts. Although I did walk away with a firespeeder pilot, I would have much rather walked away with 2 Codys as well.

Sorry, just needed to vent.

JabbaJoe
03-29-2006, 12:45 PM
Hey Camaro, that was me! Why do you think I call my self JabbaJoe? KIDDING!!!! I was at work for about a half an hour at that point! I agree that that guy sounds like a real fu*ker! Did he really have bacon under his other meathook? I love the ****** bags that will speed walk to get to the figs first. I am NOT that guy. Nothing new here, but I will be going out soon...

BlueLeader
03-29-2006, 12:50 PM
Sorry to hear you were sooo close to a Cody CamaroJ just to miss out because of a scalping HW jerk http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif. I have started looking for those treasure chest HW whenever I manage to get to a store to check for SW goodies. If I ever find any I will buy all of them, open them, and give them to my 5 yr old daughter to play with...she actually does enjoy playing with my old HW and matchbox stuff.
BTW I checked TRU at Clinton today and they had put out 2 more hoth refresh cases but no clones to be found.

03-29-2006, 09:58 PM
I'm heading out tomorrow after classes to see if I can hook you guys up with Codys. Hopefully I'll be able to find some UGHs in the process. I better bring my anti Hotwheels scalper repelant.

Man you aren't kidding. I went to the Hagerstown Target tonight. They had no figures so I took the DPCI number to customer service. They checked their store and 2 other Targets in a 60 mile radius. In 3 Targets they had a total of 3 Saga collection figures. (She let me look at the screen and everything). Either these areas are getting cleaned out faster than the speed of light or this area is getting nadda.

Pellaeon
03-30-2006, 09:06 AM
These are quite possibly being cleaned out at the speed of light, at least they are around here. A couple cases will get put out, pegs are seemingly clogged, the next day 2 are empty. I have been shocked at how well these are selling.

Glassman6
03-30-2006, 09:18 AM

Nothing at my Target either. Same old refresh figs now warming the pegs. (though the good thing is they never seem to warm long...even the John Kerry in Star Wars gear is moving it seems)

Glassman - incredible custom man! The package is spectacular. Do i see even more customs listed on the back??? How long does it take you on average, from start to finish, to complete a figure and case???

Tossed you a vote on that other board too. Good luck!!!

Ani, it depends on how many wife/kid distractions i have going on. When uninterupted, 3 days from concept to, sculpt, mold, cast paint & card. Some parts of the process require long wait time, Like mold making.
But when i only get an hour or two a night to work, it takes a couple weeks.

03-30-2006, 07:00 PM

03-30-2006, 07:57 PM

That sounds like a good idea http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif I bet he lurks around these boards especially this one looking for tips on when to go to Target. In fact, I hope he does so he can read this, NO ONE LIKES YOU! TO US YOU ARE SCUM! WHY DO YOU BUY TOYS FOR PROFIT? GET A REAL JOB! TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR LIFE AND TRY TO SEE WHY YOU ARE 300LBS AND STILL BUYING BACON! DOES IT EVER OCCUR TO YOU THAT YOU SCARE LITTLE CHILDREN AWAY? YOU ARE SAD AND PATHETIC!

Target here in Winchester put out one case of Coruscant FINALLY. Lucky I got there when I did because there were two people right behind me digging through the figs.
I got Cody, Firespeeder Pilot, Foul and Lushros. Feels good to finally type that sentence. Double checked for UGH's but there were none.

Hey Camaro, next time you see that guy running in the store, say in a loud voice to embarrass him and so everyone can hear "Look at that grown man running to the toy dept. What's wrong with him? I can't believe a grown man is running in a store like that. That's no only dangerous, it just plain sad"
and then, make sure you let the store manager know, in a nice calm but concerned manner, that there is a man running around the toy dept. and you're shocked, because you think it's causing an unsafe environment for the other customers, and maybe you should alert the district manager because you can't believe that Hot Wheels make grown men act that way and you'd be happy to point out the offending gentleman when he walks by. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
Maybe the store manager will ban him from the store.

VeryLaZ and I went hunting early this morning and found Coruscant. We first went to Towson Target but all they had was a refresh case. We then hauled ***** over to Timonium and found at least 2 cases of Coruscant. The weird thing is that there were only 2 UGHs on the pegs, a Grievous and Scorch. I picked up the Scorch and VeryLaZ picked up Grievous. There also werent any Cody's on the pegs. I also picked up a Lushros for MaddysDaddy. We left a firespeeder pilot for someone else. White Marsh Target had remnants of a refresh case.

Flacks you can take me off the list for Cody as I hit the jackpot on Friday at Target. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif I took the day off from work so I could be the first person in the door that morning. I even got my first two UGH's an Anakin and an Obi-Wan. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif These UGH's are very nice, I want to get all of them eventually.

I picked up that lonely figure you saw Glassman. Stopped by Columbia Target this morning and got Lushrine Dofine (sp?). My first find of the latest wave. Now I'm just hoping I spot the rest of the wave. I'm also not certain yet if I'll make an effort to pick up the UGH for me. My plan is to not spend as much money this year as I did last.

Well the 8am Target run finally paid off! But not exactly in the jackpot sense. Restocked with 1 case of Geonosis so I saw the Clone and Scorch on the pegs for the first time ever. Grabbed them for later trades or anyone on here who wants them. Send a PM if you do.

Edit: Clone and Scorch went to CodyFan.

Went to Target in White Marsh this morning at 8am and found nothing on the pegs. I checked the DCPI for the VTSC and DoGG figs but they didn't have them in stock. I went to Middle River Target after classes, they restocked this morning with a couple cases of Coruscant but all the "good" figs were already taken. TRU in Golden Ring had some Hoth, Carkoon and Geonosis.

04-05-2006, 01:46 PM
Picked up the new Obi figure at Columbia Target. Walmart & TRU had nothing. Could have gotten the new Anakin but passed since he didn't look much different than prior figures. Got Obi-Wan since (in my opinion) all of his figures last year sucked except for the pilot figure.

And it appears I'll be getting a Cody in the near future!

CamaroJedi
04-05-2006, 02:19 PM
I agree with you on the Obi figure. I never bought the pilot fig from ROTS so I'm really tempted to buy another SAGA Obi to open.

P.S. Anyone know when the UGH promotion ends? I only have Cody and Scorch and I'm afraid that I wont be able to find anymore.

Found the entire Coruscant wave at KMart yesterday. No UGH figures though so it looks like I was beat to the punch. Only had 1 Cody though.

So I grabbed for myself the Cody and a Foul Moudama. Left behind 2 clones and the rest of the wave since I have an EE case coming to me.

Also got an extra Foul Moudama - if anyone is interested send me a PM and its yours.

Yeah Pell, I stopped at RIO target this morning, and figured you grabbed everything by the time i got there. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
I did get Foul from columbia target this morning. They must have had more cases and put them out yesterday. Cause he wasnt there Wedensday and there was no sign of cody/firepilot/U trooper etc. Just anakin, ki adi and foul.

After all the Cody madness dies down, i would like to get one to keep carded.

Interesting note, I talked to one of the employees, and he told me that They got word for a big Reset for the end of the month, so he asked me if anything new was comming out.
So i figured he must be talking about the new VOTC. So end of the month...The hunt continues!!!

Glassman, do not go to the RIO, they sold all 3 cases on Saturday/Sunday. Germantown should though. I think it is 087061511 if my memory servers me correctly. But Germantown is pretty rock solid on not going into the back.

Glassman6
04-11-2006, 11:59 AM
Well Pell, my firend, I am happy to say you are wrong about that one. I figured you had Rio locked down, so i did go to Germantown, I put the code in, the scanner said YES!!!
I then grabbed the least "knowlegable looking" employee i could find ( Sorry, I know it sounds bad, but this is war)
I gave him the code, and after repeating it 6 times...yes 6 he could not get it right in his PDA thing, He went and pulled a box for me.
There were more, he said so, So if you are in the area, go get yours. I didnt want to be greedy because i know these wont be scarce. I just had to get mine so i can stop hunting till the next wave...June i think.
Thanks for the code Pellaeon!!!

OH and i grabbed some orange clones too. In the words of the once great Ice Cube, "...today was a good day!"

Pellaeon
04-11-2006, 02:40 PM
Haha..RIO locked down, I wish. I did buy a case of VOTC on Saturday though, as did my buddy. The other case went to the pegs and was gone when I went back on Sunday.

I am very glad to hear I was wrong! Germantown has been getting a bit nastier when folks as them to go to the back. Congrats on getting your set. It was painful buying two sets, but gotta get that Lucas, and gotta have a MOC set http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Glassman6
04-11-2006, 02:48 PM
Yeah, i was saying the same thing. When she finished scanning all of them, i said " i dont even want to know" before i truned the price thing toward me.
Usually you find one or two $7 figures... SO to get these "expensive" ones and 2 sets...yikes.

And for the record, actually you werent wrong, you are very right about them not wanting to get anything from the back, thats why i asked someone who didnt seem like they were asked alot, they were in the furniture section stocking pillows. (strategiclly picked him and asked for help.)

Found more long cases at another Wal-Mart today.
Picked up the Vader UGH that I needed, and just worked out a trade for the Han UGH, so I'll be finished when that arrives.
Went from no UGH's to all 10 in just a couple of days.

Another collector here in town gave me the 5 POP's from the vintage figures because he didn't want the Lucas figure, so I hooked him up with a Clone.

I also grabbed another Cody for a fellow scummer.

Hey Everyone, new to these boards and actually fairly new to the Baltimore Area.
Thought I'd finally introduce myself, since I had a weird experience at Towson Target. Finally found Cody and Fire Speeder and an extra Foul to open. Was checking them out, of course to see if there were any UGH's, but there were none. This guys walks by me with a kid in his cart looking at what I was and started muttering Cody to himself, he went right on by stopped, looked at some stuff and then started circling around saying EBay...EBay..Ebay. Almost gave him a piece of my mind, but decided not to since he had a child with him and I was kind of aggravated for some reason. Obviously dude thought I was a scalper. With all the Scalper hysteria I've noticed lately, I figured it might be someone from these boards....So, for you Sir, I am actually a Collector, and you should probably speak up if you want to instead of behaving deranged, espescially when you have your child with you!
Anyway, sorry for the negative first post, but this guy got my goat. It has become harder as it is to find new stuff without having to get heckled when you finally find something.
I'll post when I see stuff, I mostly check out the Towson/Pikesville area when I can and look forward to helping out with the hunt.
By the way as of this morning, Towson Target had all of the new Wave except Foul and Cody, no UGH's. Nothing at Wally.

jedisquared
04-19-2006, 05:50 PM

Anakin21
04-20-2006, 08:11 AM
Saw the Skirmish in the Senate Battlepack this morning at Target...didn't get it b/c too expensive and I have all those basics individually carded anyhow.

No Grievous...least on the pegs, didnt ask for backroom help...honestly Im not too worried about finding this figure so I dont mind waiting.

Also had my first ever "hot wheels" guy encounter. He was inspecting the SW section (w/ Hot Wheel in hand) and when I came up he acted kind of skittishly and went back to the HW aisle. Nothing new on the pegs so it wasn't too big of a deal. But this is the first time Ive ever seen anyone else there at 8am, so i feel like my monopoly is over! (granted ive yet to score anything decent from an 8am run so i cant be too upset!)

Did grab a titanium AT-AT tho. Sorry Flacks, you can put that one back on your list!

Met up with fellow boardmember acave this morning to make an exchange and we were told by another collector that Wal-Mart had the VTSC figs out.

North & South Glen Burnie WalMarts still have Vintage figures out, but the Crain Hwy. store didn't have any biker scouts. They also had new raw metal Death Star Five-PK. I was able to secure one demise of Grievous exclusive at Columbia Target, after being told on the phone they wouldn't sell them before April 30. You just have to ask some schmo that doesn't work Toys.

I went up to Rt. 40 walmat and saw a guy with about 15 UGH. A guy was opening boxes for him as i walked up. He had them all, and was nice enough to give me a UGH scorch & Vader. The stock guy also let me have a display.

There were tons of regular cody's and orange clones on the pegs. The entire wave was there.
I also stopped at Target in Rio and had someone pull a bikerscout and tuskin raider from the back for me.
I didnt have the code for grevious, so i didnt get one...yet.

Well i havent been hunting this weekend.
I'm actually disgussted at looking at figures.
My wife decided saturday that my display cabinets can't stay in the "nursury" we are making. Keep in mind i have every loose 3 3/4" figure since 1996. Among other Spiderman, Batman, Superman, Marvel etc. In 3 Cabinets. After unloading and loading the first 2 i was gettting tired.
Well, I had the birght idea to just "walk" the SW cabinet litte by little and long story short it tipped while i was behind it and my son was leaning against the wall watching and the doors flew open and ALL of my figures spilled out.

Disgusted with figures right now. I told my wife, that if she ever asked me to move them again, I would understand that to mean that she no longer loves me and i will pack my bags and go http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Target @ Baileys X Rds (Rt. 50) reset as of this morning. Moved the SW stuff to center aisle, the old space was full of Superman stuff. Looked like a net loss of SW pegs by 3.

Had a peg full of Grievous, 6 Senate Battlepacks, the new SAGA packaged fighters (Ani & Obi) and Grievous' Wheelbike.

Also had just 2 VSTC left - Luke and Greedo. And a bunch of Titaniums (incl. the new Battlestar Galactica stuff).

No new basics/UGH - so even with all this I didnt end up scoring anything since I picked up Grievous a week ago.

I was at that same Target shortly after you. Very disappointed that they a) did not have any new basics and 2) had one! vertical column for basic figs in the reset. The pursuit of SW gets more surreal every day. I didn't get any of the new stuff, although I actually kind of like the Grievous. Too much money for what it is though...

TRU restocked in a big way - saw all the new SAGA vehicles, some VSTC, and tons of Titaniums. Grabbed the Naboo fighter, TIE Bomber, and ARC 170. Im officially hooked on this line now. Went from "I'll just get a few" to "Why not, its just $5!" - I think its some twisted way of feeling better about not scoring a basic figure in weeks.



I was at that same Target shortly after you. Very disappointed that they a) did not have any new basics and 2) had one! vertical column for basic figs in the reset. The pursuit of SW gets more surreal every day.



Yeah I drive by that one every morning and just recently started doing the 8am run there. But have yet to score any serious basics from it. Looks like employees get first dibs or Ive just got incredibly bad luck (i.e. they stock at 8:30am!) Either way, with fewer pegs and Derlins filling 50% of the ones still left, I have v. low expectations for that store.

Sadly, I also have low expectations for that store, but it's so convenient for me that I might as well go. Now that I think about it, I've never really found much good stuff there. During ROTS, I think my best score was in late June when I found an AT-TE and a blue guard (curiously, at around 8 pm). Most of my HTF figures were from TRU or other Targets. I've been hitting that Target 3-4 times/week for the last month. The best I've seen in that time was around 9:30 AM on a Tuesday, when they had Utapau clone, Ki-Adi, Foul, etc. Of course, Cody is the only one I'm really looking for (much like most people), since he was such a notable omission from the ROTS line, which I was really big into. Might have to reevaluate my strategy now, or else decide that I have a platonic crush on John Ratzenberger.

Nice!
Most guys ask for the moon for an UGH Cody.

Not much luck of late. Haven't seen any VTSC's yet. Found the Coruscant Wave restocked at Towson Wally and Target this morning, but no UGH's. Target still had a Cody, after I grabbed an extra to open. Nothing of note in the Perry Hall area last evening.
Starting to wonder if the UGH's are going to start drying up. Any good word on that? Later guys.

Just my thought, but based on the fact that EE still hasn't shipped the bulk of wave 4 that has 4 revisions all with UGH, I would say that we may see at least one more big shipment of those cases to the B&M stores as well. Hope so anyway.

This is also just my thought, but I can't believe that Hasbro will stop shipping items like UGH that (for some reason) get people really excited and psyched to go out and look for toys, and that stores will stop stocking items that bring people in. If you can't find them, you probably just missed a scalper or employees took them all.
Then again, it's become a boring pattern lately that I go to Target/TRU looking to spend money and end up not spending any money because they don't have anything, so who's to say whether Hasbro etc. are acting rationally or not?

With the new wave of Heroes and Villians of Episode III UGH will be harder to find, considering UGH will not be shipping, as of yet, with future assortments.

Remember though, that alot of KMarts and Toys R Us stores usually get in Waves slower then the rest so keep checking there.

I know Toys R Us was just getting the Hoth and Geonosis Wave in when Target and Wal Mart was on the Cor. Wave.

Still no Target exclusives around here yet.
They did put out two cases of basic figures, don't know why they didn't put out the other stuff.
No UGH's though.
