As for hunting, does anyone know if the EpI-EpIII tins are planned for the 12th? I saw from Hasbro's site that EpIV-VI are planned for October.

Thanks! The SW gifts are coming in. I got Vader's MR FX lightsaber, and a Kotobukiya 501st clone among other things!

Anyone know how to change the title of this thread to #9?

Yeah Happy Birthday StrangeDasein.

Val_Da_Carr or a mod have to edit it. I have faith in VDC to get the job done, once he checks in.

I was looking at Hasbro's website and they note "look for Wave 1 of the tins early October, Wave 2 late October and the Cantina WM Exclusive Tin in December."

I have a feeling the next couple months might get very expensive.
Collector Tins, New repaints of vehicles (wanting Vaders Sith Interceptor and the Hailfire Droid), Naboo Wave, Mace's Battalion, and some of those other battle packs.

Probably quite expensive, though I'm passing on the tins unless they're much better in hand than in pictures. Gotta have the Cantina band, though. Probably buying Vader's starfighter...buying at least one AAT and Hailfire. Picking and choosing from the Naboo wave.

Another note...I'm starting a new job which will mean lots of travel, mostly in Iowa. I'll post anything I find along the I-94/Hwy 151 corridor between Milwaukee and Dubuque.

First off - don't tell me that me not letting you bash members of our community is not "worthwhile post" - silence is equivalent to agreement and what you said was out of line for what this website is here for.

Dude, I did not whine to the admin about you, don't think so highly of yourself. As far as "dragging your name through the mud" - you did a fine job of that yourself.

I simply did what everyone else did and commented on what you said. If I hit a senstitive issue with you, then that's great - that's you learning a bit more about yourself. We all have parts of our character that we don't realize we have, and it's never a wasted experience when we have learned something about ourselves.

You apologized - great, let's move on.

If you need to, just log-off for a while...and let's leave it at that.

Work keeping me busier than normal...finally caught up and whoa..some drama....I did the math and now we are up to #9 for the Hunt in Wisconsin.

Hit TRU...nice...got the TIE because he has the newer pilot w/weapon.

Target OC & Racine nice endcaps with the Unleashed and a few shocktroopers around.

Hit the Franklin WM and got some Titaniums and the I asked the Toy Dept Manager about upcoming releases and she was really nice about what she expects (including the VSTC to stay at $9.96 for a while) but alas nothing new.

Cricket, congrats on the gig in Iowa.

I will be travelling for work in Mid Sept to Miami, not sure how many stores I will hit but maybe I can bounce to the FL Forums and ask around.

THanks for visiting the newly numbered Toyquest forums here at RS.

I saw a couple of Titanium Ultra Slave 1's on clearance at the Madison west Target yesterday for about $10. These clearances are typically chain wide so keep your eyes peeled.

With Hasbro cancelling the Ultra line, you have to wonder what's going to happen with the Millenium Falcon and Tie Advanced. Are these going to be remain super rare or clearanced through say KB Toys? Thoughts?

Hey Cricket! Toys R Us has the larger wing Tie Fighter that Target had last year. The real difference is the lighter gray, weathered paint finish and the Saga/OTC Tie Pilot instead of the POTF pilot. Good luck on your new job! At least with Iowa on your route, you can visit your family from time to time.

EDIT: Oops you found the info you needed while I was typing this. Nevermind, but good luck on your new job!

Picked up the Boba Fett Unleashed at Target this morning, they had one Fett left and 4 Grievous'. The FDL Walmart has the ENdor wave falling off the pegs except no gunner. There were at least 5 of every other figure but no gunner so someone is hogging all those.

I was over there around 2:00 and they still had one Fett and 5 Greivous Unleashed left. Nifty (albeit large) packaging, too bad they are reissues. Too bad they're now $20, as well.

Noticed TRU changed its set up again. Star Wars toys have been moved over an aisle. There were 3 Tie Fighters and about 5 X-Wings. They had a space for the Gunship. Didn't see a space for the AT-AT.

Hasbro's website says look for EpI-III in early October, EpIV-VI in late October/November and the exclusive in December. BUT... I believe in the ComicCon Q&A, it noted the Exclusive Cantina Band in October. So basically start looking in the next couple weeks.

Okay, I'm not even going to try to catch up with you.

Meanwhile, I'm working late today so took the morning "off" and stopped by TRU. Holy wow -- lots and lots of Heroes and Villians! If only this was the Naboo wave.

Picked up my four-armed Grievous, as well as the next three Battlestar Galactica titaniums. Between the front of the store display (almost as big as Midnight Madness 05) and the regular toy aisle display, they had lots of Star Wars (including Clone Wars gunships, large wing ties, and Dagobah X-wings). No AT-ATs, or Hunt for Grievous battle packs, though.

Target in Waukesha also had 2 of the Titanium excl. Vaders on the shelf. Pretty unimpressive for $15. You would think they could have done something more than a little paint. O'well I dont have to buy it if I dont like it. TRU Brookfield sound the same as notmertz report. I counted 7 of the Death star trooper. Has anyone else noticed that it is almost impossible to find one that doesnt have the top of the bubble damaged. All but one had the top of the bubble dented/creased. I havent notice that on other figures. Wonder if its something with the insert or what. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Well I went back to the Menomonee Falls Wal Mart after work to pick up those OT Unaltered DVDs and they were not there. Being that it was payday. The space that they were in were filled up with other stuff and the price tags were removed. So either someone bought them all up. Or as I'm guessing that someone there put them out a week early not knowing what what the deal was and the release date. Then the manager probably came along saw it and yelled at who did it and took them off the shelf right away.

So the Saga continues...

Stopped into Waukesha Target on the way home from the Brewer game.
They still had two of the Titanium Mustifar Vader's. I like the new packaging, but not much different except for a little red paint.
Lots of Medium sized vehicles. Saw at least 4x Vader X1 and 4x Mace, and about the same Ani, Obi fighters and a couple GG Wheelbikes. They even had a couple #26 U Clones on the pegs.
Not much else. Anxiously waiting for the tins, and Mace's Battalion BP to show up.

This has been found in most other countries already. Not sure what Target is waiting for. This looks very, very cool. They have added the airbrakes:

Coming back from the Dells yesterday we made a few stops.

Wal-Mart Baraboo - Had the new wave of Galactic Heros with Luke & Han Stormtroopers. There were two Greedo & Han sets and one each of the rest.

Target west in Madison - Had the Titanium Lava Darth Vader figures. I did not see any vintage finish versions.

TRU in Madison - Tons of stuff. I did get the last AT-AT and a Tie Fighter. It is nice to see so many toys again. I hope we won't be looking at these same ones in 6 months.

TRU in Madison - Tons of stuff. I did get the last AT-AT and a Tie Fighter. It is nice to see so many toys again. I hope we won't be looking at these same ones in 6 months.

Ted

Unfortunatly that seems to be what happens. They get a glut of figures and they hang around forever. And why did it have to be the rehashed figures; heros and villans/greatest battles/ what ever they are calling their latest reason to try to sell the over product figures. Blah. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

Stopped into Pewaukee WalMart last night and they dont have much for basic's but they have lots of the Forged Titanium figures. They had one or two Vintage finish of Vader, Fett, Sandtrooper and Bossok.

Will have to check out Brookfield TRU on the way home tonight, just to have a peek at lots, and lots, and lots of SW stuff.

I know this if off topic but somethings are important enough that they must be addressed. I met with(and purchased some figures) from Mike (bubba_fett71) this afternoon. I am sure some of you know him from the boards here, he has posted in the past. Well, He is sick now and needs an operation.
From talking to him today I know he has problems with his prostate(not Cancer thank God) but he is going to have to have it removed. He has run through his and his wifes insurance in the diagnostic stage and now has nothing left to cover the operation. Most of us are luck enough that we can only imagine how devastating this would be for us and our families. I am open to suggestions as to how we can help one of our own here. Please give me your input. I am will to do what ever I can to make this happen.

Picked up the titanium lava vader at Target East today. Still have 3 fett and grievous unleashed. And lots of ships, mace, vaders tie etc.
ToysRUs has 1 AT-AT and several clone wars gunships, along with several dagobah x-wings. But, no new figures whatsoever. As a matter of fact, they hardly have any figures at all. They do have Shaak Ti, and Bariss Offee 12" marked down to $8 something.
Wal-mart east has chewbacca and shocktrooper unleashed marked down to $11.00.

Hit Waukesha WalMart this morning and picked up the Commerative DVD figure packs, love the artwork. They are $9.94 each, the OT DVDs are $15, and the exclusive DVDs w/ the Comic reprint are $19.96. I almost bought the comic sets, but resisted. I have the original ESB comics and would really have liked to the Ep IV and VI, but held off for now.
Also as much as I wanted to get Lego SW II for the Xbox 360, I am holding out till it gets a litte cheaper around Christmas. Just got my son started on Lego Star Wars I, so he'll be ready for a nice Santa gift with II.
They had also stocked some basic fig's, but they were the Tat Rev Cases, so a few Sandtroopers, Cody's, and Utapau Clones. All the Scorch's were cleaned out already. No Naboo sighting here as of yet. (they have shown up in AZ, I think it was)

I am waiting to hear back from GG on whether or not the sculpt is any different than what was at Comic-Con. If it's different, I have 10 days to cancel if I want. Final price I think was about 151 bones from NorthSide Collectibles...by far the most expensive thing I've ever bought and I am not going to make it a habit. That peice was just too cool though.

BTW, any figs around Milwaukee besides H&V?? I could use another DS gunner. Endor2 wave would be better!

They have plenty of SW figs (they expanded the side of the end cap for more figures) They must have 4-5 cases of figures out. Too bad they are all Tat/Endor I + rev cases. Lots and lots of Vader, FS Pilot, and Dofine. They did have a couple Codys, Utapau Troopers and Sandtroopers, but no sign (or room right now) for Endor II / Naboo.

Stopped into the Miller Park Target this morning. They have lowered the price on GB Basics to match the Saga basic at $6.64. They have 16 pegs for basics! Most have 4-6 figures per peg. (okay nothing exciting, mostly the standard peg-warmers from the last 3 waves and GB waves) Sure beats the days of seeing 3 barren pegs at most stores.

I scored a few more of the Endor 2 wave myself, too. But not in Madison. Was in the Lake Geneva area the past two days, and managed to find the white version of the Endor Solder, plus Poncho Luke, at the Janesville Wal-Mart.

Stopped at the Delavan Wal-Mart twice in one day -- nothing in the morning, but a lonley Naboo Soldier when I stopped by right around 5pm. So the pod racers, rep been, and Gagra still elude me. A maybe the holo maul, although I'm still debating.

Arg. I was indifferent about the GB re-releases only a year after their release for ROTS. Didn't buy any for $7 when I bought them last year for $5. But now they're clogging the pegs and the Saga figs aren't being restocked--except at certain Walmarts if you're lucky.

That was probably the most SW's I've seen since the ROTS release. My wife was much less impressed when I walked out of the store with an AT-AT, new Tie Fighter, and a couple of Shocktroopers. I got the standard response from her of "Don't you already have those?" to which I replied "NOOOOO, these are different, see the wings are bigger, and the AT-AT has green paint on it."Of course tehn se was REALLY impressed!

Stopped at Wal-Mart West tonight at 10:30. Several (3 or 4) boxes of Greatest Battles (wave 3, rev 2) were sitting on the palette -- plus one box of wave 6! I approached the gal working toys and asked her if she could/I could open the box. She very politely apologized and said that she couldn't largely because of the crazy behavior of Hot Wheels collectors. Gar!

I tried to woo and sweet talk her and charm her with my good looks all the while remaining gosh-darned nice. I did some toy aisle employee education and explained to her that the 3-4 boxes of Greatest Battles would sit forever, while the one box of Wave 6 would fly off the pegs, all the while saying, "It's okay, no worries, I understand."

After making an off-handed comment that we (as in the Star Wars collecting community) generally despised the bad boys of Hot Wheels, she finally budged a bit. She said if I hung out until just before closing she would make sure the stockers broke open the Wave 6 box. I said cool and made a quick run for food.

I got back just minutes before closing and sure enough, the box had been cracked and the figures were on the pegs -- except for the pod racers. Ahhh! Where did they go? Did someone come in and take just those figures? How bizarre, and how annoying.

But I did get to pick up a Gragra, a Rep Been, and a black variety of Endor trooper for StrangeDasein. Which means I'm one figure away from taking another mini-vacation from hunting for the individual careded figures (I'm passing on most of the final 22 -- mostly interested in the astromechs and Appo).

The lessons learned tonight are 1) bad mouth Hot Wheels collectors (sorry) and 2) don't make a quick run for food.

So I've been hitting the Kenosha WalMart at least once a day for two weeks straight looking for wave 6. Needless to say I'm pretty fatigued by doing so, so last night I finally spoke up to someone who was actually very nice. I explained the situation and she looked up the figures on the computer. Long story short, they have 13 basic figures on the pegs - the computer reads 153! The computer didn't say there was anything in the stockroom but she looked anyway for 13 cases of Star Wars figures and didn't see a thing. She was nice enough to say she would talk it over with the toy department manager today to correct the inventory problem and hopefully get some new stock in, but that could take ANOTHER 2-3 weeks!

Two interesting points from the computer I was able to see. WalMart pays $59 ($4.90 each) a case for the figures and marks them up 25%.

Made up some excuse to be into work late, and went on a morning run after dropping the kids off at school.
Started at Delafield Target. They have 2x Kit Fisto Starfighters on the shelf. Nice repaint, but I think I am going to pass (I like the paint job of Tinn's upcoming one better). They still had basic fig priced at 5.86, so they are actually on sale for $5.30 this week. Nothing really to buy though, just Vader, Endor 3P0 and Jerjerrod. They did have an Alternators Prime and Mirage out. Only the second time I have seen Prime (s n a t c h e d him right away the first time I saw him)
I checked the red scanner, no stock of Snowspeeder's yet (or Mace BP)

Nothing but the same at Delafield WalMart.

Brookfield Target was pretty much the same. They still have quite a few Fett and GG Unleashed.

This took up enough time I was able to hit Brookfield TRU at opening. Just so everyone knows (which I didnt) there is a new Elmo toy that just came out today! The line was huge, there were probably 30 people in line by 9:55 this morning. Crazy I tell you. They lady I was standing next to, we were joking about "must be the return of tickle me Elmo", when the lady behind us told us it was a new Elmo toy coming out today and thats what she was there for. Ironic. The manager even come out and spoke before opening the doors "No shoving or pushing once getting through the doors, and only one per customer". Anyway back to SW. The new battlepacks were out. I grabbed the Jedi vs Sidious and left the other two. Almost picked up the Sith Lord Attacks one also. So I left 1x Sith Lord Attacks and 2x Salaac Pit (forgot its offical name)
They are still loaded with vehicles. 4x ATAT's, about 20 XWings, 20 Gunships, and probably about that many Tie's. I did see both versions of Tie Pilot packaged. They also have a couple of the Ultra Titanium Slave I's and an Ultra Snowspeeder for anyone who might of missed it the short time the appeared awhile ago.

Are you sure that buy 2 get 1 free at TRU is for Star Wars toys? I know it applies to TF's.. but I didn't think Star Wars was part of the sale. Then again, that might just be in stores. (Edit: It appears that you can with some toys.. not all though.)

No, not all are included in B2G1, but most SW toys seem to be included. I paid 89.99 for two X-Wings, got a third for free, paid tax, and got free S&H.

One will stay sealed--I really like the window box for display. The other two will be opened, de-mossed, and used for a Yavin IV hanger display of some kind.

EDIT: I was able to put 3 AT-ATs in my cart, and one came up free. No free S&H...so the total is $195 before sales tax. So you're looking at $70 per...sure beats $90+.

Didn't notice that promotion code last time (which was my first online hasbro purchase). On which page do you enter that promotion code?

NEVERMIND. Fount it. Wow, excellent deal indeed!

Madison Toys R Us has a few AT-ATs in stock; also looks like they just restocked the GB wave in the "regular" Star Wars aisle. East Madison Wal-mart also looks to have restocked the GB wave as well-no sign of Endor/Naboo.

EDIT-They also had one Sarlaac and one Chancellor/Jedi Battle Pack at TRU-left 'em both.

I was just at the Walmart and they had at least 6 gunners on the pegs. They must have been saving them up because they didn't have any ewoks, emperors, or moffs to go with the gunners.

It was at the front of the next isle. They gave it a better positioned end cap. Maybe now they can sell all those Grevious exclusives.

Silly me. Right before lunch I read this post and was speed reading the other posts and I read Prime's post and thought Target put them out so I ran over there. Little did I know he was talking about Wal-Mart. Whoops. Of course they didn't have any snowspeeders out.

bad collecting day....

my three week, everyday trips to Kenosha WalMart have paid off with piles of crap....5 boxes of Endor I figures and two boxes of the mixed assortment. it's more figures then they could sell in a month. I have officially written them off for any sign of the Naboo wave and seriously question the rest of the year.

target Kenosha has the Snowspeeder in back. Asked the jerk (and I do mean jerk) to get one out of the back. He couldn't because they can't be released until the 15th. when I asked him how many they had, he told me 3. I immediately wanted to know if there were a great deal of items that came in in odd numbers. Needless to say I left pissed and without a snowspeeder. I hope it was someone here who got one past the tight security.

Stopped into Waukesha WalMart this morning, and still no signs of Endor2/Naboo. They did put out 2 cases of GB (Rev2?). 4 Shock's and 2 Green Commanders on the pegs. Damn that Saga Packaging. I already have more Shocktroopers then I said I ever planned on getting. But I picked the one with the best paint apps and left with another Shocktrooper. Left 3 on the pegs though.

Madison West Walmart moved the Attacktix endcap and loaded that space with Star Wars figures...

Which wave? I'm not sure but there were tons of Obi-Wan, Anakin, Mace Windu, General Grevious, and Chewbacca. The figures were in those Walmart UGH vintage boxes without the UGH stickers.

I agree with you. And I don't begrudge anyone for asking somebody to get something out of the back. Some stores will do it, and some won't. Some team leads say don't get stuff for collectors...others say nothing or don't care if you do.

The 10/15 date isn't a "rule" but a guideline. There's a planogram revision scheduled for that date, but each store can set their stuff whenever they want, up to a week beyond the date.

Anyhow, I'd be shocked if any of the upcoming Target exclusives are hard to find...they ordered a ton of these.

Source of picture: My camera phone. I almost didn't buy one because these are not suppose to be out until the 15th. I didn't want to get anyone into trouble, so I told the toy people that these have a street-date of the 15th. They said their planogram was already set, so it was ok for them to put them out early. So I bought a snowspeeder the legal way.
We had a piece of Target cake, some cocktail weenies, Swedish meatballs, and cheese curds. We also got a goody bag from the pharmacy department that had fish oil pills in it, some lotion, coupons, a razor, some tylenol, a huge ziploc baggy, some muffin bars, an energy bar, and some other stuff. OH!!! I was able to score an Elmo!! My sister wanted it for her friends daughter. I also got the Little Mermaid DVD. Target rules!!! Down with Walmart!!! My Walmart boycott still survives!!

I havent seen the Comic packs in the Western Burps since early last week. I double checked Waukesha and Delafield WM's this morning for you and nothing.

Delafield Target has done their endcap also. 4 Snowspeeder's (VDC one's in the trunk of my car, right now for you), and 18 Fisto JSF. There were no battlepacks out, but lots of the Han/Chewie TF to fill the rest of the endcap.

Found the Endor 2 / Naboo wave at Delafield WM this morning, so it was a nice morning hunt. There is another revision wave shipping too. Saw Saga Grevious, Tat Luke, Snowtrooper, Cody, and some other earlier wave figure too.

I know the Wal-Mart on E. Capitol, in Milwaukee, had a number of the comic DVD packs ... as well as the Wal-Mart on 108th street.

They also have GB / HV and wave 5 figures falling off the pegs, shelves, and anyplace else you could shove them. There must be a couple hundred figures spread around to a few places. Please come and buy these. Do make me look at them every day forever.

Nice to hear these are starting to appear. The come 1x Ep I, 1x Ep II, and 2x Ep III.

Stopped into Waukesha WalMart a little too early this morning. They were only just starting on unloading the pallets of toys. Still on pallet were at least 8 cases of 7" Unleased, and I counted at least 6 cases of the Saga Long box Basic Asst figures. (Which from other reports are just H&V, GB, and other earlier Basics).

whoa! Take it easy. When I said fall for it I was referring to the fact that the VTSC were first spotted at Shopko and I ran around like crazy trying to find them there when a month later they're falling off the pegs of Walmart. That's been my attitude so far with the Naboo wave is to try and wait until they're clogging the pegs or showing up more frequently, instead hunting everyday and being disappointed.

There were definitly Naboo figures at Shopko and I just should have gone yesterday when you were spreading the word.

I think he's responding to what I posted yesterday. I don't think anyone thought you were lying with the "fall for" remark. Personally, I've been told by other collectors in the past that Shopko just got in this or that. Shopkos are few and far between for people like me in Milwaukee, so when I barrel out and rush to one of these stores (Racine for me), it's a complete waste of gas and time to find out that the item the person reported there was gone. As a matter of fact, every time I visit the Racine Shopko, there is an extremely small selection of Star Wars toys, and what scraps they have left are figures from 2 years ago. I think Shopko stores are the absolute worst place to find Star Wars toys. This Naboo wave shipment they're getting in is a fluke, and they probably wont get anything new in for quite a while.
