continued from Part 3 (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=1739816&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1#1739816)

Nothing at Targets Willowbrook, Bedford Park, or Cicero. Hodgkins had about 3 cases of the remix wave this morning too. Picked up the lone Clone.

Walmarts Hodgkins and Bedford Park had nothing. Bridgeview had nothing but 5 Hoth Vaders on the pegs so they got Coruscant sometime this week, probably yesterday.

Nothing at TRU Burbank but some of the single carded GI Joes. I left 2 Crimson Guards on bent cards.

Good Luck!

Hey all - I have a Grevious and Obi from Coruscant if anyone needs them. If I dont get any bites, they will be returned tonight to Target in Palatine...only need 6 more UGH. Are they only going to release 10 or will there be more later?? Anyone know?

Here's what I love to do to the scalpers when I have to deal with them. As they are rifelling through the SW, I will quickly go to the HW section. Let out an audible "wow" or "yes" and then grab any car I can. I walk away admiring the car so that the scalper sees me, but not close enough for him to see what I have. Let him think he just blew the chance to get a Treasure Hunt to waste his time in the SW section. Then on the way to the cashier I put the car down and walk out. This has really worked quite well for me on several occations.

WEll I hit the Jackpot in Bloomingdale today. At Walmart I scored a firespeed pilot and Cody. At TRU I scored Holo Ki Adi and a Clone Commander from EP3. AND at Target I scored a Scorch and almost a UGH Grievious. I say almost because there was a guy and his kid looking at Marvel figs.. I started talking to the guy and asked the lil guy who his favorite character was... he said grievious and got red faced and said "but my daddy cant find one for me". I reluctantly gave him my one and only UGH find so far. Oh well... I remember when I was a lil guy buying ROTJ figs and saw a luke jedi fig in this guys hand and as I was oogling it he looked down at me and asked if I wanted it and gave it to me... I will never forget that and am happy to make a little guy happy... too many scalpers out there and lil ones cant get the cool figs cuz they are scooped asap in the am... Im gonna stop babbling now and get to imputting my trade list. If anyone can help me get one set of UGH I would greatly appreciate it.

I almost forgot. I found a white tie fighter in the titanium line. I overheard some guys abvout a week ago talking about it being an unmarked UGH... Is that true?

03-31-2006, 03:45 PM
nah.. the white TIE is just a variant and a "nod" to the old Kenner white Tie http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif like the clone wars gunship,they have a "limited" foil sticker on them... at least the gunship does, lol... I dont know about the tie.

I finally found my first UGH figures today at the Walmart on 75th street in Darien. I picked up Grievous (x2) and Scorch (x2)!!

So I am looking to trade both of my extras for other UGH figures. I am also trying to get all of the little figures, so please specify which mini figure comes with your figure if you are interested in a trade.

Have:
-Scorch With Obi-Wan mini (Will trade only for Cody at present) - PENDING
-Grievous With Stormtrooper mini (Will trade for any other UGH) - PENDING

I currently have a Dooku and Han silver mini, so I would rather get offers for figures that have other minis beside these 2!

PM me if interested!

Hi everybody, I'm back after not having a computer for the last four weeks because SBC sucks and couldn't get the phone line at our new pad to work properly!! We just moved over to the Streamwood area from Naperville. I'm right between the Target on 59 and Irving and the Target on Schaumburg and Barrington.

Empty shelves at the Target on 59 and Irving. It seems like this place stocks mid day when they do decide to stock.

This seems like a pretty nice area up here. I've chatted with some of the collectors when I've made runs in this area and around Elgin and they're all pretty nice for the most part.

Still looking for most of the Coruscant Wave and the UGH's! My luck has really sucked ! !! LOL

That's freakin' funny..

That was pretty nice of Tweekum to give the kid his Grievous figure. You're lucky to have found anything in that area. When were you there?

Interesting find at the Bloomingdale Target on Army Trail Rd tonight. I checked the scanner, and it said there were figures in back. A nice kid working there went to the back for like 15 minutes and came back with four cases. I was pretty excited till I discovered the cases had been rifled through already. Three of the cases had been opened and had any Codys and firespeeder pilots taken out. There were two UGHs total- both Greivous, and they weren't in the best of shape, as whoever went through the cases wasn't very careful. The unopened case turned out to be the Hoth/Geo/Carkoon mix, so nothing exciting there. There were plenty of orange clones and other coruscant figures though, so if you're looking for any of those hit that Target at opening tomorrow 'cause this was just a bit before closing. I only bought the two UGHs. Just don't count on UGHs, Codys or firespeeder pilots.

I wonder if there is a worker at that Target that is taking stuff from the back room.

So no more [censored] from me. My Target had 7, YES 7 cases tonight....I grabbed the Cody's, Orange Clones and FireSpeeders. I have a crap load of EVERY figure from Coruscant. PM me with needs, I also have a set of UGH Scorch and Grievous for trade for the remaining 4 UGH that I need. Let the PM storm begin http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Picked up my first UGHs this morning at S. Elgin Super T - Grievous and Scorch. They also had the Coruscant wave. There were a couple of Holo Kis and at least 1 of the others (no Cody or Firespeeder). I grabbed the two clones.

broctoon
04-01-2006, 10:04 AM
Meacham/Higgins Target stocked, and I picked up a pair of Grievous and Scorch UGHs. I also picked a plain Cody and firespeeder pilot for another Scummer- if he still needs them. The Target on Scaumburg and Barrington looked like they restocked recently, but only with the mix case. so nothing good.

If anyone needs a Grievous UGH I'm looking to trade my extra for one of the following UGHs (in order of most desired):
Cody
Snowtrooper
At-At Driver
Boba Fett
Obi-Wan
Anakin

And I know I'm missing one other one 'cause I only have three, so I'll figure that out and post that one later.

Sorry for the late post, but my net access has been spotty for days.

Found the Coruscant wave, sans Cody and Obi-Wan, at Orland Park Wallyworld on Friday afternoon. I left behind several orange clones, a badly damaged scorch and a greevey and an ani.

Target had one orange clone, which I bought for a friend and a couple Jangos among that combo wave.

Ok, here is what I have left (if you PMed me, I have put aside the requested figures for you). If I do not have any wants by the end of today, the rest are going back...

Orange Clones - 8
UGH Grievous

The Rest of the basic Courscant Wave (minus Cody and FireSpeeder)

Bill

On a side note, I know this isnt ebay but I got multiple offers trying to trade a basic fig for a UGH. We all know the UGH Scorch and Cody are the most desired and I will trade accordingly

You're lucky you found anything at those stores on Army Trail. I've been told by several other collectors that there is a group of like 6 or 7 scalpers that are there every day at opening who make beelines right for the figures. Nice to see a fellow scummer got 'em instead of some idiot scalper.

Anyways, Target 59/Irving Park road..not one basic figure on the pegs this morning at opening. It's been this way for the last four days.

Checked the DCPI for the Demise of Grievous, they have it in their system, just none in stock. It is:

A little Off-Topic, but does everybody remember what they were doing exactly 52 weeks ago today? While the date is not exact, on this Saturday 1 year ago was the release of the ROTS line. What a great day that was http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif Running around to every Target and Walmart in the area trying to get the Lava Vader and Early Bird sets and trying to score figures 33-40, all on no sleep since I was at Midnight madness at TRU the night before and went to a couple 24-hr Meijers in between! It should also be noted that this marks the 1st birthday of the infamous Biker Gang, who were named by the exiled Darth_Hiryu! Can't believe it was 1 year ago already. I still haven't opened some stuff I bought that day last year!

Well I didnt get much today... but I did get a lot of cooperation from Target employees this week. I want to thank any of you that are on the board. On another note (and I thought I worte this earlier) I met Bladesedge today. Great guy. I was standing in an target (that location will remain anonomous) waiting patiently for an employee that was kind enough to go in back and grab a fresh case.. and saw a guy coming up and thought to myself... that guy collects figs... we had a conversation and he asked if I was Tweekem!!! HAHAHA.. it was just so cool to finally meet a nice guy who wasnt collectiong for scalping or to horde. Hats of to ya bro! Well we found another mixed wave.. no UGH no nothing... gave him the Cody I found. We agreed that everyone on the board should get the Rebelscum hats and wear them when we are hunting ... just an idea. Anyone know when Demise of Grievious or Demise of Fett comes out? Fett is Toys R US and Grievious is of course Target.. I was told that it would be this week and saw nothing.

Nothing else to report other than finding about 10 cases lately of any other case than the wave 3 cases.

Target in Highland had squat on the pegs. They were stocking 2 carts of boxes but at a quick glance I didn't see anything good. Today was the first time I looked at one of those scanners and I see how you can check that DCPI number...too bad I didn't know any of the numbers!

I know it's been posted a hundered times but can someone (again) post the Target DCPI for the basic figures? Thanks!

Yeah, you know I just sit on the couch all day, eat bon-bons, and watch soap operas.

Seriously, I'll be the first to admit that we are extremely lucky to be in a position where one of us can stay home and raise our little girl, but it certainly is a ton of work! (Although I'm a lot less stressed out than when I was teaching).

For example, I barely slept Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

And actually I haven't been able to make that many toy runs. I only went out twice this past week. Before that, my last run was on 3/15! My baby girl usually keeps me pretty busy in the morning.

Trust me. I'll be the first to admit that stay-at-home parents work as hard or harder than people who go into an office or classroom everyday. I stayed home with my 14 month old last summer (he was 4-6 months at the time) and there were days that I thought it would be easier to be at work. It actually gets better and more rewarding for you both as they get older. We spent all weekend without Mom and had a great time. He is pretty mobile now so I am constantly on guard. I am really looking forward to this summer when my #2 comes in June. At least my wife will be home so we can use the man-on-man defense. (I also may be able to go on a few more runs this summer than last. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif)

Found 4 UGH at Wheaton Target at opening. I was there with another gentleman and he went high, I went low and found all 4 UGH they put out. He said he had 8 and needed 2 of the 4 I had, but I did not offer them up since I do not have any of them.

If you lurk or post here, I am sorry I pulled them all, but both of us had equal chances to pull whatever was there... no one pushed or argued... is was a spirited hunt that ended up in my favor this time... is how I look at it.

Anyhow, went to the Target on Diehl next, one box unopened and pulled UGH Grievous and Scorch... So I had a pretty lucky morning. No doubles in UGH and I needed them all. All I am missing now is a Cody/AT-AT Driver UGH for a complete set. If I find any extra, I will post them here for trade.

I also stopped at the Lombard Target and they restocked with the coruscant wave.... left all. They had a few extra clones and scorchs as well.

Have a UGH Grievous
looking for

Snowtrooper

Obi-Wan***
let me know if u would like to trade
Also i met one of the nicest Target employees to date
Walked into Target on North Ave. "Melrose Park" and they had the same ol car/hoth/geo wave on the pegs, so i asked a lady going to the back with some overstock on a flat bed if she could look up an item for me to see if they had any back stock because i had all of what they had on the shelves
and she said sure no problem, she the proceeded to check her LRT and said yes i have 2 locations and she asked the employee next to her to bring out the whole case cause these are assorted and to let me pick out what i wanted. So im waiting there and they come out with a case and crack it open in front of me and said here ya go is this are any of these what your looking for? And i said yes picked out UGH Scorch & Grievous and a reg Cody and the Lady then proceeded to ask are there any more figures you are looking for cause i think there is another 1 or 2 cases in the back and i can bring them out to see if they have other figures you are looking for, at that point i almost fainted cause i have never been asked that by any Target employee before in my life. So i politely said yes could you please cause im looking for an obi-wan and she brought out another case and it was the crap car/hoth/geo wave so i politely thanked her and was on my way. sorry for the long read just wanted to share my story with you guys

To a certain extent I almost did, but I got to the Target near Yorktown Mall at 8:05 instead of opening, and somebody beat me to all the new figures. As I walked to the Star Wars aisle, I saw a man walk out with a bunch of figures. Many of them were in clam shells, so I assume they had either the Demise of Grievous or VTSC out.

I dont know if it was new stuff or stuff they had in back from their last fill.. the computer still says they have more in back('bout time Target).. it's nice to see full pegs and that there;s stock in back.. of course if it stays like this too long, then people will just b!tch that they have the same ol' stuff in the store...oh well.

WOOOOHOOO I found cody today at FV TRU. I haven't been into the UGH since I'm an opener, but had to take this one since he was bundled with a silver boba fett holo. If anyone is in the neighborhood, I'd swing by since they had quite a bit of the coruscant wave. I counted at least 4 other codys, several utapau clones, grievous, firespeeder pilots and the rest. For the UGH set they had a UGH AT-AT driver there too.

Oh and by the way any scummers there at about 12:30? I saw two other guys both with crew cuts make a beeline for the star wars section while I was in line to check out. I thought to myself, if they only knew what I was checking out with they might be jealous. Okay I probably think to much, but we are all kinda strange for being so enthralled with these little bits of molded, painted, articulated plastic.. oooo the new fig smell...

I don't have a problem.. really.. I could stop whenever I wanted to.

*** if you are a scalper: ****
{Waves Hand} These are not the droids you are looking for
{Waves Hand} Move along

Now that its only us true scummers reading - I stashed a cody behind the transformers right to the right of the star wars section at FV TRU.

Haven't really been able to post from work lately, so sorry for the somewhat dated info: Target on Scahumburg & Barrington stocked with the Coruscant wave today, and had ALL of them including Cody and firespeeder. No UGHs, though. I don't know if they didn't get any, or if I was beaten to them, as I didn't get there till about 8:20.

Target on Meacham and Higgins still has a load of Hothgeokoon figures clogging the pegs.

edit:

Almost forgot- Happy birthday UTtoyfan! I'm glad I hooked you up with Cody the other day since you didn't luck out on your b-day.

No people shouldnt be charging more then retail on any new figure that is still currently available @ retail, if your selling it then i say cost but if you are trading a UGH u should atlease get 2 regular non UGh figures in return.

In regards to the post Commander Dan left....I was the one that he is refering to. As I stated in the PM, I am holding them to trade for the 4 UGH I have left and if someone really wanted them, I would consider selling them at a slightly higher price.
Ask anyone on this board I have more than done my fair share of hooking up and have never charged anything over retail. The only reason I said that was because I really dont want to part with them unless it is for the UGH I still need. Commander Dan, I am sorry if you took my reply the wrong way.

I was there at opening on Wednesday and saw all of them. I passed on them cause they were all bent.

Still nothing new at the Target on Meacham and Higgins. Lots of clogged pegs with mixed case leftovers. Target on Scahumburg and Barrington looks like they have had the coruscant wave sitting for a day or two now (minus Cody and fire pilot, of course).

Also of note- toynk has the GG episode III clone mini busts up to preorder. They are charging a little more for the blue and orange, but it's worth it 'cause they are sold out everywhere else. I didn't post this in the "other collectibles" thread 'cause I wanted the locals to get a crack at them. Get to 'em fast!

Ok fist off the Cubbies won. Woo Hoo. I went to the Target on 83rd & a lady brought out 2 cases but they were the mixed cases with no UGH's. I bought 2 clones & a scorch. I went to Target in Orland nothing special, Orland Wal-Mart nothing as well, Orland TRU & found 2 clones but gave them to other collectors that were looking for them. I also met a few new guys that are pretty cool. Other wise not much found. Weasel I sent your figs today bro. I just would like to add that KIDD is a huge help here, one stand up guy. If anyone needs anything let me know I got my 30 clones & all the reg versions of figs, so if anyone needs anything just let me know. I do need a few Galactic Hunts but thats not as important as helping other collectors out here. If anyone can help I need these Galactic hunts
Cody (for my buddy in Urbana)

It seems with every wave we get a period of only pegwammers that nobody wants at all and it seems like everytime UGH's hit it flies off the shelf because of a scapler or because some kid thinks its rare because of the sticker. Maybe we should get hold of those stickers and put them on the pegwarmers so we can get them out and maybe they'll stock newer stock because most scaplers don't look at the figure but for the sticker on it. Call me crazy but I wonder if it would work.

I finally saw the UGH and parts of the Coruscant wave in a store today! The Target near Yorktown Mall in Lombard restocked with 3 cases of Coruscant. There were three each of UGH Boba and Snowtrooper. I only bought one Snowtrooper and one Boba for broctoon(since I'm not collecting these), and one Foul Moudama since I didn't have him yet and so bought him as an impulse. I left the two other UGH Boba and Snowtroopers there on the pegs(as of 8:15 AM). With regards to other figures, there were a lot of Utapau Clones, some Firespeeder Pilots, Grievous, Ki-Adi, Ani and Obi. No Cody or Lushros at all.



Similar report at Broadview Target, however I got there seconds late as a couple collectors (at least I hope they were collectors) were grabbing the Grevious, Cody, Scorch, and At-At Driver UGH off the selves. They also grabbed the regular Codys. If you guys are rebelscummers, congrats! No exclusives to report. Nothing new at the Forest Part Wal-Mart.

Still need UGH if anyone can help.




It wasn't my old friends the stink brothers was it? Brothers, early to mid twenties, desperately in need of a shower and a comb? Started becomming VERY bothersome about two years ago in the Broadview, Forest Park area after being kicked out of LaGrange Target for stealing (allegedly).

I believe it's on all Star Wars brand items, from action figures to accessories. At least thats what the ad on Jedidefender and the sign at the Golf Mill TRU said this morning. They didn't have anything worth getting though, some remnant of the Geo wave.

Golf Mill Target had a buttload of Coruscant wave figures though. I met BHiga there and we each were able to get an employee to bring out some stock from the back all in the form of Coruscant wave figures. As I left at 12:30ish, they still had a couple Cody's, a Foul Moudama, several Orange Clones, and many of the remainder of that wave. So have at it folks.

Talking with BHiga, I got the idea to check the DPCI # for the VTSC figures at Target and while the stores on the North Side and Burbs come up empty, the south side is stocked with VTSC. According to the girl, these numbers are as of last night though I am not sure if these are per figure or per case as each fig shows the same number...

4433 S Pulaski - 5
Crestwood - 20
Calument City - 5
Homewood - 10
Plainfield - 10
New Lenox - 10
Joliet - 10
Highland, IN - 10

There was at a minimum 4 cases of figures on the pegs, left all the Clones, all of the Coruscant wave (no regular Cody's were there) and a few UGH's hanging. Probably not much left on the pegs now...but you never know...

A wasted morning!!! I went to the hip target and they didn't have figures in the back like the scanner said and no VTSC and when I went to the service desk to ask What stores Have VTSC they said The HIP, Brickyard, Melrose, Rosemont, Niles, and Elston Target had 2 cases of them but in the end the stores at the HIP, Melrose, and Brickyard didn't have them but their systems said they did. They checked the backroom and all toy managers in each store looked also and they don't have them but the system told them that they have two cases worth. I don't think the others do either and each store wondered why they didn't have any or no location of them and yet it still said they had it. So don't waste your time at those stores it seems more likely they don't have them.

INDY
04-10-2006, 12:25 PM
I get that to. The system at the store says they have them but then the people looking can't find the case anywhere or it isn't in the location it's suppose to be in. The VTSC figures are not on their current planogram, so the people stocking don't have anywhere to but it in the aisle and it goes to limbo.
Also when you check a store from another store, by the time you get there the case could be gone already and the computer hasn't "updated" the info.

04-10-2006, 12:54 PM

Hip Target has a case of VTSC in the back and 4 figures on the floor. A Super nice employee called back to the stock room and waited probably 10 mins for someone to bring a case out for me. I grabbed 1 set and an extra Scout Trooper. Now I just want to grab another set and a few more Scouts and I'm all caught up except the UGhs.

For those of you who are getting help from employees at Target we should all go to Target.com and send a note to corporate. Maybe all the customer praise will help them lift those silly signs off the pegs. Trust me, corporations NEVER get positive feedback from customers, and when they do, they get really excited. I was able to help a TRU employee get a transfer to another store by sending in a note to croporate.

RE: Your Comments About Collectible and High-Demand Merchandise

Dear Joe Ryan,

As you can imagine, there's been a lot of excitement about the
availability of Star Wars figures at our Woodridge Target store.

We give our store teams some guidelines on purchase limits and set
dates for high-demand items. We encourage our store teams to limit the
availability of these items as needed or as appropriate.

That's because at Target, it's always our goal to try and give all
guests the opportunity to buy these types of items. Despite our best
efforts, this isn't always possible. We're sorry if you couldn't find the
item you were looking for.

Thanks for shopping with us. We'll see you again soon at Target.

Sincerely,

If you are referring to me, I was there at noon today. They were supposed to put the other 4 on the pegs, but I didn't actually witness them doing it. They also said there was two locations in back, which I took to mean they had 2 cases. They brought 1 case out and opened it in front of me and handed me the 6 figures I bought.

I asked them what there exact policy was for collectable items and if all stores are supposed to follow it or just ones with "collector problems" of course they didn't answer my question fully, they just gave me the generic answer they're probably told to tell.

I can't believe that the southwest area got the VTSC in before anyone else. That's the first time EVER in my estimation. We are usually a couple of weeks behind the western and nothern burbs.

Anyway, from that post Sunday night about who had what in stock, I went over to the Target on Pulaski and 44th at around 10am. I meant to go earlier, but staying to a strict schedule can be pretty difficult when you are on baby time. I considered going out without showering, but I thought it would be a bad idea to deepen the stereotype of collectors having bad hygiene.

Anyway, nothing on the pegs there. I went to customer service and was helped tremendously by an employee named Maribel. She said that she had just sold their last case! Whoever you are, I hope you were a fellow scummer, but I doubt it. Maribel told me that she sent him to the McKinley Park Target to grab some more cases. I mean, maybe he was buying for his friends, but how many cases do you need?

Next, she printed out a list of figs in the area for me. Then, she called the Bedford Park Target for me to see if they would hold a case for me. They said they couldn't find them. I figure they had already sold their cases or the guys there didn't want to look.

Maribel didn't give up, though. She went ahead and phoned McKinley Park in the hopes that the other guy hadn't bought all their cases. They told her they weren't allowing anyone to buy those figures until April 30th. So if that guy was a scalper, he didn't get those cases.

I get the feeling that if Maribel hadn't heard the "don't sell until April 30th" line, she might have kept on calling for me. Still, she was extremely helpful and gave me the list of stock in the area. By the way, here is that list. Who knows how much stock is left, as this is from 10:15am today:

McKinley Park (33rd and Damen) - 2 cases
Bedford Park (71st and Cicero) - 1 case
Broadview - 3 cases
Hodgkins - 3 cases
Chicago (87th and Cottage Grove) - 1 lonely figure
Chicago (Elston Ave.) - 3 cases
Chicago (Brickyard) - 2 cases
Melrose Park - 2 cases

You may notice that I left out the Cicero Target over on 31st and Cicero. This is where I finally scored my case! I met another guy there at the customer service counter who was getting a case for his brother. Christian turned out to be good people and we talked collecting for a little bit. We had to wait a while, but Sharonda at the desk was very helpful. Eventually, a girl named Bianca came from the back room with our two cases. She also was carrying customer service cards for Christian and I to fill out. We both named Bianca and Sharonda on our cards. Based on the stock report, we cleaned them out.

So now I'm all caught up. I've got a set for myself and another for a buddy from Chicago Force. I think I am going to get an extra Scout Trooper, however.

I forgot to thank KIDD for all the helpful info over the last few days.

As far as the scalping discussion goes, I agree that $30 for two figs isn't exactly a rip off when you factor in taxes, fees, and gas.

On the other hand, why doesn't he first offer what he's got to the members here before going the ebay route?

not to defend bhiga but 29.99 for 2 figures isnt really scalping in my opinion each figura was 11.99 + tax = $13.70
13.70 x 2 = 27.40 + ebay fees comon fellas cut him some slack on this one



Right, but did you look at the other auctions? He has a At-At UGH for $30. $23 is sure a lot for ebay fees....

I KNOW there are plenty of people here who need that one.

Just to clarify- I think that auction is only the Luke VTSC, so the price is a *tad* high. The picture shows the Sand Person, but it's not included in the description or title.

Ackbar, I entered the DCP number at the McKinley Target and got none in stock. Wonder if they really even had them? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif
