Are the Wal Mart 5 figs still hitting or have they came and gone? I have still not seen them either. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Wal Mart exclusives suck. Like it was said before there is no consistancy to them.

I did find remnants of the Appo Wave at Target...

Haven't seen any signs of the WM wave except on last Thursday, and that was just one case.

I hit the motherload at the Waukesha Target I picked up all the figures I wanted left the Padme and Holo Kenobi behind because Im not to crazy for girl figures and holo's. I picked up the battle droid two pack, Clone serganent,Clone engineer, elite corps clone,Vader's astro,442'nd siege battalion, and Commander Appo still some of that wave left if anyone wants it. =)

No need to say sorry JP. Because the sport is all about timming. I'm glad a Scummer got them instead of a bloody scalper. But no one will never know what happend to that poor little Astro Droid.

Stopped at the FDL Walmart and as I walked down the aisle I got a little excited as the pegs were stuffed full. To my horror though there was not a single new figure on the pegs. The had at least 10 full pegs, 2 were full of Vader, 1 of Chewy, 1 of Endor Luke, & 1 of Artoo. The rest were filled with Endor and Naboo remnants. Nice assortment. I also hit the Oshkosh Walmart and found 2 of the 5 exclusives (devil man and the praying mantis w/ the hoola skirt). I gotta say these are some crap figures and if they weren't exclusives I'd be willing to bet they'd warm the pegs.

Darth_Fett
02-09-2007, 10:55 AM
Yeah I bought them for a fellow collector, if he doesn't want them they will go straight back to the store. Unless someone has a spare Aurra Sing exclusive they'd want to trade for. That's the only one I'm even remotely interested in but I've pretty much given up on finding it. If anyone has a spare let me know.

Are the 5 Walmart exclusive figures common now? Every time I walk into a Walmart, I find several sets of all 5 on the pegs. This is in the middle of the day too. I bought one set for myself last week, but looking back, I should have picked up more to help fellow Scummers and thwart the scalpers.

Darth_Fett

I'll second that. I think those three stores have each only stocked one set of the exclusives. And right now it looks like Waukesha WM restocked all their backstock from Christmas. All pegs are full along with a shelf on a center aisle. All from the Tat / Endor 1 revision cases. Lots of 3P0, DS Gunners, Sandtroopers, etc.. I fell lucky Shytown wasnt picking these up that fateful Wednesday night (still looking for a second Appo), or I would have yet to see them.

I stopped at Waukesha Wal-Mart and Target tonight, around 7, and they both had nothing. Although the Wal-Mart did have a number of unleashed battle packs - but that doesn't do anyone any good; and it does look like a bunch of holiday backstock on the shelves there.

We didn't find much today. The only new thing that I never saw before was the white tie fighter at 27th TRU. TRU opened about 5 minutes early. You don't find things there if you get there at two minutes after ten. You guys were lucky that they didn't have anything of interest today.

http://home.wi.rr.com/hansolo/SSPX0184.JPG

27th TRU needs more figures.

http://home.wi.rr.com/hansolo/SSPX0185.JPG

At this point I have all of the Saga figures with the help of Kenbenobi, Swiski66, and another friend that does not post on this forum. Thanks!!!
I was able to dodge buying figures at Walmart, except for the exclusive five, so I bit the bullet and broke my boycott of Walmart. I will probably kick myself down the road if I do not get these.
The only thing that I need is the Saesee Tinn fighter, and I don't see this as being a problem to find. I am probably going to pass on the new tie fighter unless I can find it on clearance somewhere. Is Kenbenobi or Swiski66 looking for anything else that I am not aware of?

I went to the toy show at Burnham Bowl last Sunday and picked up this gem:

http://home.wi.rr.com/hansolo/999_0636.JPG

This Ewok is called Latara. The side of the box says "Latara the Ewok is everyone's best friend". My friend Kenbenobi picked up the Paploo. I think it was Paploo. Let me know if I am wrong Kenbenobi.

FYI.... I downloaded a disc called "Returning to Jedi". It was made by a fan and it is really cool. It has snippets of behind the scene stuff as the movie is playing. I recommend downloading it.

Delafield WM is pretty empty for basics (2x Pistol Packin' Pregnant Padme, 3x Naboo Soldier, 1x Endor 3P0), but looks like they got a case or two of the Comic Packs (with the new, better painted Vader). A few med Vehicles on the shelf including a Vader Sith Fighter, and AAT. If you care about SW TF, the Luke XWing, and Boba Slave I are now in the TAC packaging.

On a different note, I am running out of space and considering reducing my clone count.

Mace's squad x 5
Utapau troops x 12
AOTC Clones from the EE Set (basically I opened an entire case) on display.
and too many others to name.

I do want the upcoming V Wing though.

The figures that I am looking forward to the most is CZ-4 and Elis Helrot. I kinda wish Hasbro would have made CZ-3 instead of CZ-4, but I guess they look almost identical. I researched CZ-3 and CZ-4, and it sounds like they both belong to Jabba. Jabba sent the CZ-3 droid to Mos Eisley to spy on everybody, and the CZ-4 just stayed home with Jabba.
The CZ-1 was on the Jawa sandcrawler in A New Hope. I wonder if there is a CZ-2?
I also looked up the droid that is with the Jawa. I found it in the Essential Guide to Droids. It is called a LIN demolitionmech. I guess it was used to place land mines. I wonder why uncle Owen needed this droid?

The first one is the Death Star Trooper with his helmet removed, and the second pic is of M'iiyom Onith (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/M'iiyoom_Onith).

TAC looks fantastic. VTAC are great (Han and Luke are my fav's this year). VWing is awesome. Concept figures are really cool, and the Force Unleashed figures are cool too. So much stuff. The vaporator... looks sweet.

I finally found the ellusive Walmart wave this morning at FDL Walmart, the bad was that they decided to have them all thrown in a cart sitting in the aisle, and the ugly was of course some of the cards were pretty beat up. I managed to score 1 set for a fellow scummer and one Aurra Sing for myself.

I love all the TAC figures. Absolutely gorgeous packaging! I was not going to buy extras to open this year, but after seeing pics of CZ-4 and those Force Unleashed troopers, I will have to liberate a few of those babies no matter what the price is. Rumor is figures will be almost $8 a piece! I'm surprised they didn't have anything new to show for Titanium ships!

I get the feeling the $7 price point will be around for a while.

In the Hasbro Press Release they quoted a Retail price of $6.99 and Brick & Motar retailers "rarely" go above retail on small stuff.

But I did notice that Entertainment Earth did raise their case price by $4 which equals $0.333 per figure.

I noticed that the K Mart in Racine was having an extra 33% off toys in the clearance section and I found 3 Jedi Temple Assualt sets for $14.17 each. I thought those had sold out over the past holiday season.

At Target I got denied.....

Two dudes got to the front of the aisle and picked off the remnants of the Appo Wave and clones.

I hope they are lurkers. (oh yea..Nice Packers Jacket!)

One said to the other one that he saw one like it at his shop? (I was about 10 feet away but that is what is sounded like to me).


The Hunt continues.....

Waukesha WalMart put out around 50-60 2-packs. All figures seen to be from the Tat\Endor Rev cases and Endor2\Naboo wave.
Lots of Utapau Clone w/ &lt;nearly everybody&gt;
1 Scorch w/ DS Gunner
For the Astromech lovers there were 2, R2-D2 w/ R5-D4.

With the 2-packs and whats on the normal pegs, they have well into 300+ figures all from Tat/Endor revision waves (and the few Naboo found in the two packs). Dont think they are going to be getting any more figures until the TAC basic show up. They did have a couple comic packs on the pegs too.

After the initial hit (which was about 2 weeks after Milwaukee & Madison) my area (FDL & Oshkosh) has not seen the Appo wave. The Oshkosh Target is where I found mine. Both FDL stores have not seen the Appo wave to my knowledge. Although after I found mine I stopped hunting everyday so it's possible they could have hit and all sold. Still haven't seen any of the new ships, are these shipping yet?

xTEC4
02-17-2007, 12:53 PM
Same. Only seen Appo and Poof once, and then just reminants (Padme, Combat Engs, and a few R4's and Elite Clones) the rest of the week (which was two weeks ago). Also have only seen one set of the WM exclusive wave. Dont know if WM is still holding back, or retailers are prepping for TAC and just not placing anymore orders.
In the Recent Acquisitions forums, sounds like Appo waves have been hitting TRU pretty good (dont know if thats true in the WI area)
I definitely feel lucky I was able to find #63-74.
Here Hasbro says, we'll be shipping through Spring to make sure there is no shortage, but so far does seem to be working that way.

02-17-2007, 04:39 PM

Universal Comics in downtown Waukesha has one set (minus Padme) of the Appo wave for $10 each (so there is Appo, Poof, Vader's R4, Elite, Combat, and Holo Ben) if anyone is still looking.



I didn't know that place was still open. I thought it closed since I haven't seen it open since before Christmas.

It was a literal zoo at the Brookfield store in the Star Wars aisle. Everyone and their mother was there...or so it seemed.

I don't usually stop cause they have nothing new and if they do its usually overpriced but I stop at the Bluemound road Big K anyway. To my surprise they had the only two Galactic Heros that I am looking for, the new Clone Wars Obi-wan in armor/Durge and the Anakin with tattoo/Clone Trooper. One of each on the shelve, and they are mine. Left the rest from that wave for another collector. Also pick up a lonesome Titanium Republic Cruiser which I had not pick up when it was first out.

Looks like the anniversary coin figures won't be showing up around here anytime soon. I think there suppose to be a street date on those and Walmart is honoring it. There was a few scant reports where a box or two squeaked through, but the majority of us wont see these until the first week of March or so.

There are only 2-3 of R4 and 3-4 of Aurra, but the rest still have quite a few of the 10 cases that were there.
Between the basic pegs, WM 2-packs and now the Exclusive (which are on an end-cap an aisle or two down from the SW section) Waukesha WM must have around 200-300 Saga figures in total in stock.

There suppose to be 3-4 in a case, but right now all the Hot Wheels guys are scarfing them up. I thought Star Wars collectors were bad, but these guys can be cut-throat. You can't miss it on the pegs. It has the Batman oval logo on top and the TV show logo in the center of the card.

Two ReIssues of (I dont remember) and the third is a repaint of the Stormie, with the ever popular black "Shadow Trooper" deco.

Stopped into Waukesha WM this morning. They moved the remains of the Exclusive cases back into the main basic aisle, only saw 1 Kit 2-pack left from the exclusives. They did have a case of the Titaniums out (saw the red interceptor and AT-TE on the pegs). No sign of the Tantive IV BP or the 7" unleashed.

Also hit the Hot Wheels aisle looking for the Batmobile. Noticed that even Mattel is using the same card back shape as the TAC and TF card backs. No sign of the BM.

Val_Da_Carr, I've seen a bunch of the Soundwaves down here. I dunno why but I can't bring myself to buy him. If you don't already have 20th Anniv Prime, it's probably worth it to get him for $40. Otherwise hold off and wait until they hit $25 and buy two.

Waukesha WM still have a few at $50. I have been hoping they will fall below $30, then I will grab one. I asked the lady in toys the other day, when they would drop again. She claimed its controlled from higher up. They just walk through the clearance aisle everyday and zap the tag. if it comes up less then the current sticker, they lower it then.

Walmarts clearancing is wacky. From what I can gather, price cuts can and do come from the corporate level, but their never seems to be any sort of consistency. Toy department managers are also given a small "budget" to mark down things on their own but I've found that most of them are tight [censored] and don't like to use this.

They also had the latest Galactic Heros and a case of the latest Med Vehicles. 2x White Tie, 1x Tinn JSF, and 1x Vader SSF.
Also if you missed the exclusive Target Battlepacks, they finally put up their endcap. Lots of Felucia and Ilum BPs out for purchase.

I was up in Menominee Falls tonight and the Target up there had the new unleashed Battle Packs - 2 stormies, 2 Rebel Troopers, and 1 of the sets w/ Luke, Obi-Wan, and a Jawa. They also had one of the white TIE fighters, 1 Vader's Sith Starfighter, and 1 of Tiin's Jedi Starfighter.

There was also one last of the green scout trooper, 3 of the 442nd seige battalion troopers, and 1 Yarael Poof ... along with a bunch of the comic packs and the latest wave of titaniums (endor at-at and Anakin's Clone Wars Starfighter, etc) That was around 6pm.

Picked up the new Galactic Heroes wave (minus Darth Maul who someone already got to) today at East Madison Target. Looked like they out out a case of new figures too-saw an Elite Corps Clone, AOTC clone, Padme. They also still have a few exclusive Felucia Battlepacks and Ambush at Illum.

Me either - I think the concept itself is cool, but the figures look distorted and the paint apps are usually kinda crappy. I'd like to see what Hasbro could do with a 7 inch Unlesahed snowtrooper.

Found the rest of the Galactic Heroes wave at Shopko on the North Side (off Packers/Aberg/Shopko Dr) this afternoon. Decided The extra buck per figure was about as much as I would spend on gas looking for them over the next few days, so decided to just go ahead and get them there.

Sorry to get off the subject again fellas. But I've been trying to find one of the Hot Wheels 60's TV Batmobiles. But I have not had any luck. I don't know squat about Hot Wheels collecting and I don't want to learn it all just for this Batmobile. It's difficult enough knowing about Star Wars collecting. But is anyone having any luck? Because I don't want to fight with all these greesy smelly Hot Wheels dudes looking for it.

Thanks and I don't get into the small Unleashed packs as well. They all looked deformed like they came out of the molds funny. I do agree the paint apps are terrible to.

Adam West is the best Batman ever. Even Burt Ward was cool as Robin. Come to think of it, I bet they would have made a cool Han Solo and Luke Skywalker.

Hey Kenbenobi.... Did you listen to the Star Wars Action News podcast this week? Did you hear about the fan film premiere that they are going to have down in Lake county Illinois. I can't remember the name of the film, but it is about Star Wars fans and collectors. The film makers said that this is not your typical fan film. If we could swing it, I think it would be fun to go down there and check it out. I think they said it was going to be played on a Friday and Saturday at a local college. I think they said March 9th and 10th. When I get home this morning, I will have to listen to it to the details again. I doubt Jerry and Diane would be able to go because Jerry is working that weekend. Maybe Swiski66 would like to come? If we don't get down there, I am pretty sure this film will be playing at Celebration.

They should do a Batman spoof on the show Two and a Half Men. The Charlie Sheen character could be Batman and his brother could be Robin. He reminds me of Burt Ward a little bit.

Madison East Walmart had plenty of the exclusive unleashed. Picked up a Shadowtrooper.

Madison East Target had the rements that Scarecrow posted yesterday. Long time since I've seen that many new figures, but I was able to pass on the Padme. No Appo though!

They had some of the Tantive IV battle packs and I picked up the Darth Vader Sith Starfighter. They also had 1 white Tie Fighter and one of Saesee Tiins Starfighter. I left those.
Then onto TRU. I found the newest non Walmart Exclusive wave. All of it. Now the only figure that I'm missing is Kit Fisto (shirtless) from the last wave. Anybody have one?

I knew 'Twin Sister's' bass player when I lived in Portland, OR. Very cool guy. I have the CD. Pretty neat stuff. During the crazyness of Episode I, the movie theater was actually catering to us nerds and allowed people to camp out (for months...) and Twin Sister played either in the parking lot or somewhere near by. I didn't go, just went to the movie.
They used to be called Boba Fett actually, then I believe they got some pressure from LFL... OK enough of my longwinded response.

Some 7" unleashed, (maybe I will pickup the stormie to go with the white one).
Picked up the White TIE not sure if I will keep it but since it was the only one I have seen in person, I figured I would (for now).

I am a fan of the larger (to scale) wings but we will see. More Special "K" scout troopers (actually 3) at target but nothing more just yet.

WM also had the Geonosian & Hoth unleashed Minis for $13 in the clearance aisle. If the GI Joe Duke was there I thought about getting him for the $11 they had him on clearance for to created a gunship w/artillery but alas, no. $11 I would buy him for $20 nope.

You're too kind... Thanks for hooking me up with some older stuff in return. Jeff is a great scummer to buy or trade with, never any problems.

On another note. Waukesha WalMart has one lone Tantive IV BP out this morning if your looking. Still full pegs of Endor I / Tat figures. They had two pallets full of box this morning in the toy aisles, but didnt see anything that might have been a case of TAC (plus they have no peg space right now for it). They still have quite a few of the WM 2-packs, one I am kind of surprised is still there is the R4-G9/Black ROTS Pilot.

So, has anyone peaked in the KMart toy aisle this week?

My case of TAC figures from New Force will be here on Monday. This is the first time I ever ordered a case. I'm getting sick of hunting. So you'll have one less person to compete with for this wave... But I wish you all luck!

Hey - I had a funny find today at the Walmart on E. Capitol ... it was the Wookie senator, Yarua, from the POTC line. It rang up at $5.88, he's still on the peg if you want him. They also had a Bossk Titanium for $3 - the box is bashed-up, but the display case looked fine, it was on the back wall of the toy section, by the clearanced toys.

They also had a Firespeeder Pilot ... nothing else though, unless you wanna pay $26 for a tin set, they had multiples of all 7.

This was at the Walmart closer to UWM

I used the DCPI 087-06-1990 to get figures from 2 cases of TAC this morning at the Target in Northern IL. They are on the same distribution schedule, so some of the WI Targets should have them in the back. They rang at $6.99.

Did a little out of the way searching at lunch today and found that the TAC's have landed in Milwaukee in an out of the way place. I found (1) Super battle droid, (2)R2-D2, (2) Obi-Wan Kenobi, (1) Lava Miner & (1) Mace Windu. No clones so either the stocker grabbed then or they didn't come. $6.97 each. Left them for others to get. If you want to have them Pm me and I will let the regulars know where they are.

I knew what you meant. I dunno how many people do the DPCI trick. Hopefully the scalpers don't know about it, but they probably already do. But like you said, that is getting harder and harder to do now. They don't like to go in the back for collector's. They assume any adult asking for figures is posting them on Ebay. One Target employee even asked me how much they were selling for on Ebay. I was very insulted...

I have to admit though, if someone came to my store and said 'I'm a fellow scummer..." I might check the back for say a vehicle or bp, but probably not figures as those are usually either all put out in the mornin' anyway and it takes too long sometimes to pull and dig and I don't want to incur the wrath of an LOD. Especially since the way things work in Logistics is that if we pull an assortment case we have to either put it all out or put everything that's in it in a sorta half box thing we call a Waco.

Its only to guys that I know aren't collecting to collect that I don't like to check for. Since I know all they're doing is turning around to sell them on eBay or at some shop for way more than retail.

Got VERY lucky at the Kenosha Target tonight. VERY nice lady at the service desk went in back herself to bring me out a case. There do seem to be very nice people working there now. It's been 2 months so all the jerks have been fired (or promoted), managers included, except one. I could deal with this crew for a while. Does anyone else notice a VERY high turn around rate with employees. There are a few I still see, but for the most part every few months they are all new. My wife worked at the Kenosha store last year. She had 2 great managers and loved working there. After 3 months, one was fired and one was 'asked to pursue other interests'. She said one day they seemed to have all new managers - who sucked, so she quit a few weeks later.

I also had the service desk run the number. Seems like all Targets got between 4 and 6 cases of the TAC figures in. That seems to be a good initial number for once. Just waiting on that re-set.

Kenosha WalMart had about 4 cases of the exclusives out tonight. Most figures I've seen out in a while. K-Marts still have jack.

I don't think talking about the dpci is secret stuff. I don't think a lot of scalpers or hot wheel guys frequent this board. If they did, they could see it being discussed in the "Just Found" section. They could also check any of the other 20 sites with boards just like this one. Lastly, they are prone to the same 'hit or miss' getting stuff from the back BS we are, even with the number. The best secret to getting the stuff you want when you ask is to just be nice to people. THAT'S something MOST of the scalpers and wheelers will never be able to do.

This seems to be one of the better boards for Wisconsin sightings and I know a number of people in the Madison area lurk here, waiting for stuff to be found in Milwaukee or Waukesha. Kinda sucks as they don't really contribute to the cause. I also wonder what some of these people do with all the toys they buy.

Because right now all I'll be buying until C4 are Clones. Since they are the most aggrovating to find. Then when I get back from LA I'll have to try and fill in the gaps then.

I was at Menomonee Falls Target yesterday, and the lady told me that they couldn't bring the figures out. She told me there is a street date of 3/25/07. Target has it all wrong. That date is their reset date, not a product street date. They have their terminology wrong. Wow! I used a big word! I said terminology. I hope I spelld it corektly. My wishlist on my Tivo found a Star Wars 30th Anniversary special on the Home Shopping Network. It is going to be on channel 75 on Warner Cable. It is on 3/14/07 at 3am and it is an hour long. I have my Tivo ready to record it. I hope they have some interesting things to sell. I also see that the Star Wars episode of That '70s Show is coming on TV on 3/19/07 on channel 24 at 10:30pm. If you haven't seen this episode, it is worth the watch.
Swiski66 asked for your help for the Batmobiles, now I need your help. I am looking for the Hallmark commercial that had Chewbacca in it. If anybody has it recorded, I would really like to get a copy of it. For the last couple years or so, I have been compiling Star Wars video and putting it onto DVD. I collect commercials, specials, old tv shows where the actors appeared in, etc... I have seen this commercial on Youtube, but I like to have the video at a high resolution so it can be watched on TV. Any help would be appreciated.

Well "Street dates" are easy to get confused. We just got a message about NOT setting any POTC3 and Spider-Man 3 toys before the 25th. Although if the reset date isn't that far away, they may want to just hold the product until the reset, because nothing bothers Execs and District people like empty peg hooks on a newly reset plano.

The vehicles and BPs I don't really worry about that much, they aren't fast movers, and after the initial few that fly really fast after being set out, they sit forever. I'm still shocked there are Felucia battle packs left! The Tantive IV's went really quick.

Patience, these things will be out en masse soon enough. Although what bugs me is, we still haven't had all of the Appo Wave out yet. Feels like that last ROTS wave all over again. Unless when they finally clearance we'll see dozens of them!

My favorite so far is the McQuarrie Boba. Then the Galactic Marine. Then the Lava Miner. Then the Super Battle Droid. The Airborne Trooper...not so much. Probably because we just a purple one with the Mace Windu battle pack. The McQuarrie Stormtrooper is OK with the slight repaints, but the card makes it a heck of a lot cooler!

So is Boba in this current first wave then? Could we get a rundown of who all is in this wave. This sort of reminds me of last year when a couple figures from a 'later' wave shipped early. Fine by me. Just wondering so I can keep an eye out.

I think the GMs are made a bit differently then other clones; you can boil-and-pop the arms right off, along with the legs and torso.

So is Boba in this current first wave then? Could we get a rundown of who all is in this wave. This sort of reminds me of last year when a couple figures from a 'later' wave shipped early. Fine by me. Just wondering so I can keep an eye out.

And if anyone finds a Shirtless Kit Fisto I'm in need...

Boba's not out yet. My list is based on all the figures I have seen pictures of so far, even if they're not released yet.

Scored 7 complete sets of the new TAC figures today! Man, these are cool!!!



7??? Is that a typo or is that for real?

Nothing at Madison West Target and the Store that Tom Wessell wishes us not to mention. At least not on Sunday morning.

Taking a work trip to Eau Claire tomorrow/Tuesday, so I'll see what's shaking up in that neck of the woods. I hope to score the Galactic Marine, Airborne Trooper, Lava Miner, and concept Stormtrooper.

Notmertz, you should change your sig now that Biggs will have a cape! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

How much are the TAC figures ringing up at Target? $6.99? Wal-mart has had figures on sale for $5.60. I'm hoping I can pick them up there.

Thanks Scarecrow! Unfortunately/Fortunately notmertz hooked me up with the figures I needed and I'm on to the TAC.

Like Zamps said that's what the boards are for and hopefully we'll meet up sometime down the road!



My mistake-thought I remembered reading you were looking for openers of those two. No problem-that's what receipts are for!

Pimpimus-just let me know about when you want to arrange the meet for the Stormtrooper. I'm more than happy to help out fellow boardmembers.
