Still nothing at Manassas Target, but Manassas TRU (post BOGO) has re-stocked with Wave 8. At this rate, TAC Series 1 should arrive around October, 2007.

Most of the Targets I frequent are still pretty barren - and have been that way since before Christmas. So thats not making me too worried about not finding TAC around NoVA. Considering how scarce Waves 8 and 9 have been around these parts, getting innundated w/ TAC waves 1 and 2 is justice due!

On that note - nothing new at Target today. TRU restocked w/ Wave 8. WM was nothing but pegwarming Vaders, Veers, and 3POs

Has anyone seen Saesee Tin's Starfighter or White Tie Fighter at any other place besides TRU? I seen them at TRU but I am not going to pay $24.99 when I know they go for $19.99. I know it's only a $5 dollar difference, but hey, its the principal!

I have seen the white Tie Fighter at several Targets here in MD, but have only seen Saesee Tin's Starfighter at TRU in Hagerstown and Gaithersburg, MD
I said the same thing I'll buy for $5 less somewhere else.

N_VA I;ve seen them at Target's here and there.

Not seen the Tantive BP yet.

Just picked up a few of the Appo wave @ Springfield Target during my lunch break. 1st I've seen this wave! Only need an Appo to finish Saga!!!

Found another Appo, Combat Engineer, and 2 more Elite Clones at Target today. Also got a Tatooine Skiff in the mail from another scummer and found my second X-Wing from the TRU BOGO sale about 1000 feet from my house in some bushes. Turns out, the brillant UPS driver just left the box out by my garage YESTERDAY, in the 50 mph winds we were having and it blew away. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif
The website said it was due to deliver TODAY.
It's not like I don't have a covered front porch where he could have left it, or maybe with my wife who was home all day. I was surprised that it wasn't broken, but I called UPS to give them hell anyway.

I'm sorry Flack's but that is just funny http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif Sincerely, I'm glad you were able to find it and that it was undamaged otherwise I wouldn't have thought it funny http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif I'm also glad you called them to complain as the driver should have been more aware of the environment, those winds were bad, every trash can in my neighborhood was turned over and in the road http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
I stopped by TRU in Woodbridge coming back from Lowes and found 4 fresh cases of the Appo wave. I got 3 Appo's, 4 Elite's, a variation light blue Holo Obi, and a vader droid to open. When I left there was 1 Appo and 4 Elites and all of the rest of the figs in that wave left on the pegs, just couldn't take all the Appos http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif.

Boy was it windy! I spent this afternoon re-hanging siding that blew off the house vs. hunting for figures that I don't really need.... Still got a chance to hit a couple of places as wife wanted to look at some craft stores. Not sure what I was looking for, so I guess that is a sign that I'm addicted.
I must also confess that when I found out Hot Wheels was releasing the 1/64 1966 Barris Batmobile, I decided this would be my next quest (while looking for new SW figures) However, after 1 day of web-surfing (and seeing they are about $15-20 on e-bay) and looking at 3-4 stores, I'm thinking it is just not worth it for a 99cent toy. One store worker (toys) laughed at me - said there is a line of HW collectors at 6am almost every day, plus guys that come around 11:30pm. At least I can find SW stuff, but this Hotwheels stuff sounds rediculous - especially for only wanting 1 car. Could care less about the others - just want the Batmobile. What purpose does it serve to short supply on something even non-collectors like me will buy, just because it is cool and nostalgic. If I were Mattel, I'd jack the price from $1 to $5, sell them on-line, saturate the retail shelves with them and make the revenue yourself vs. letting scalpers make the profit on ebay. Maybe there isn't enough market for middle age geeks like me who are re-living their childhood through their kids... Maybe I'm being jaded, but I think Hasbro is at least trying to meet demand... you could get most of Wave 9 on-line yesterday... Let's see if my opionion changes when TAC Wave 1 hits....Sorry for the rant....
But...keep your eyes out for a 2007 Hotwheels 1966 Batmobile #15 of 36 in the series - but I will probably break down and pre-order the 1/18th scale version, even if I can't find the HW version.

I noticed that Target's now infamous "We won't check the back room for stock" message has been posted by several local Targets very prominently in the Star Wars sections (among others).

I guess collectively we've all had an impact! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Saw those Wave 9 remnants at S-field Target on Friday - the only thing I still really need is the Vader Sith Starfighter titanium vehicle - otherwise I'm just biding my time until TAC hits. (which will probably occur in MD way before NoVA)

Vaderdad - I had to laugh at your post about being addicted - you're exhibiting the same symptoms I had right before I relaxed my "collecting rules" to include more than just basic figures! Beware! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I picked up the Capture of the Tantive IV battle pack at Manassas Walmart today.

vadarthdad - There were only 2 when I got there. I hid one for you if you need/want one at the end of the aisle behind the Jack Sparrow pirate sets. It should still be there if you want it.

Thanks to N_VA for the find. Still there at 6:15AM, so I grabbed it. Nothing else to be seen, which was odd....wonder why only 2, and only at this WM, which traditionally has had nothing - not even the $9.99 2-packs or the Exclusives yet, let alone Wave 8 or 9. I don't even think I saw Wave 7 there....but maybe you just get there before me... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Hey Glass,
those Cantina Band Members are exactly the same except they each now sport a soft goods vest. Both Wal-Marts here in Winchester have had a TON of them for the last month. I'm waiting to see if they go on clearance.


I picked up 3 Tantive IV Battlepacks today at Target (2 for me, 1 for another collector)

I got the Cantina Band thanks to Fezzik. Germantown Wally has about 10 more.
They had a bunch of the Shadow stormtrooper unleashed too.

also a Appo, 442th trooper
Elite corps, white rebel endor soldier, and a clone sergeant.

Gainsville Target had 4 Tantive IV's this AM at 11. I left 2 where they belonged and moved 2. PM me if you want to know where the other two are - no gaurantee that they are still there. They have 1 black and 1 brown rebel.

FYI - The first one I opened had 2 black haired. The one 1 brought back from Syracuse had 2 brown haired.

Edit: As of 6:30pm tonight, the ones on the regular shelf were gone, but 1 of the 2 I "relocated" is still left.

On a whim (after reading another forum on K-mart findings) I decided to try Manassas K-mart. Haven't been there in 2 months, as they didn't have anything before or after X-mas. No signs of TAC anywhere in the place - still looks like a mess like it did 2 months ago. The have a lone sandtrooper (left it) and some Hoth/Snowspeeder (unleashed 2" figures?) for $13.

For those remembering my Manassas Target DCPI story (that told me Felucia will be out 3/4) since it is 3/4, I decided to see if they put them out - no. I may re-check with the DCPI and see what story they give this time...

Checked the Sears Grand off 5 just south of AAFB, but no TAC yet. They did have 2 Jedi Temple Assault and one Imperial Throne Room BPs on clearance for $22 though.

jedisquared

Where did the K-mart TAC rumour start? I saw that Sears Essentials & Sears Grand where the chosen ones. I know Sears owns K-mart, but I don't think their distribution system is the same.

Finally added the Naboo Royal Starship to my collection. It came in the mail today from a trade with another collector.
The thing is enormous.

Didn't find anything at the local K-Mart today, and wasn't surprised.

They are the same company. In Oklahoma, we didn't have a restaurant called "Hardee's", but we had "Carls Jr." Same exact business, different name.

In K-Mart, you can apply for a Sears credit card as well.

Just bought TAC Wave 1 two of each figure, one to keep MOC and one to get the coin, except for the McQ's those were already gone. Found them at K-Mart with no stickers and $7.17 each. Also just canceled my EE case order. Gonna be a pain in the rear to find McQ because he will be an ebay scalper favorite unless Hasbro pushes many many cases of these out.

Still addicted. Went past 2 new targets this AM (not in Manassas) in our local travels. Both showed Yes for stockroom and DCPI. 1st one tried getting the guy in the toy isle that happened to have a scanner - no dice - standard party line about not unti 3/24 shelf date, they are collectable, must wait, etc. I didn't want to push my luck, but now reaching junkie status, I was on a mission. Found a kid in the garden section (which happens to be right next to the stockroom) who had a handheld scanner. Not wanting to push my luck, I just asked for one McQ stormtrooper and one Darth Vadar/Album, both of which he returned with - could have probably gotten more, but the "mission" was met - the figures weren't that important (except for the album). Next target I stopped at I went right to an area near the stockroom doors, which happened to be near the babyfood. Found a nice girl with a scanner stocking babyfood - told her I wanted 4 - she askd if I wanted 4 cases - I said no, just 4 figures (McQ, AT, LM, GM) - she brought out the case, opened it, and let me pick my 4. I truely think I could have purchased 4 cases or more. Now that I've proven mastery of the DCPI, I think I am done. May hold some of these for trades for Wave 2 and beyond.

Target has a transition date set for 3/25/07 to set the TAC figures. They should be on the pegs around then unless the set is done early.

TRU Gaithersburg seem to have a large amount of space for Star Wars right now. All ways a good sign when expecting new product. But only a few 442nd clones and Padmes are hanging there.

Picked up 1 Appo and 2 Scouts at Gaithersburg K-mart yesterday morning.

Mt Airy Wal-mart has/had as of 5pm last night, several cases of the last exclusive wave with R4-M6, Labria, Aurra Sing and the others. I picked up 1 R4, still plenty of each left. They are on an end cap as well as the main aisle.

Happy Hunting

Part II (sorry for the double post):

N_VA, Flacksguy, & BlueLeader:

Found 2 Paploo on Speederbikes - thought these were supposed to be impossible to find. I don't collect Titanium, but I grabbed them for fellow RS ($5.99). Before I return them to my local TRU, PM me if you want them. You guys have helped me find things recently, so you three have first shot.



Thanks anyway VADarthDad but I'll pass on him. I do collect a few of the titanium vehicles but only OT, well except for the Clone Wars Gunship I just couldn't pass it up. Even though the speederbikes are OT I just can't get interested in them, maybe it's the people sitting on them that distracts? I bought all the originals when first released back in the 90's and was glad to see the line continued.

Found TAC Wave 1 at Target this morning. Looked like there were a couple cases stocked - but by the time I got there there were only 1 of each clone left and no McQ figs. Picked up 1 of each.

Also saw the new TAC Unleashed packs and the Vader album.

Thought I'd enjoy the new packaging - but agree with others - not so into it.

Fezzik,
Germantown does not have them in the back anymore and only has obi-wan and r2d2 already starting to warm pegs.

Gaithersburg target has them in the back, i was able to get the rest of the wave. They also had 2 Obi-Wan's and 2 R2's left on the shelf.
The person i asked said they had alot of them.

Manassas K-mart was hit sometime yesterday or today. I was there on Monday and they had nothing out. Today they had 1 Galactic Marine, 1 Airborne Trooper, 2 R2D2, 2 Obi-Wan. Someone must have cleaned them out of the rest - my guess was one swoop - 2 McQT, 3AT, 3GM, 2BD, 2LM.

Being into the scientific method and all, figured I'd try and prove my theory today....used one of my local Targets to pull the DPCI listing for TAC within 25 mile radius and give me a count. Theory being that the stores that have an even quantity of 12 can't be broken by the DPCI method and some other method might work, but in reality, they know their internal plan and are sticking to it - with luck and timing playing a factor last week, right after the truck arrived and before they "learned" their policy...

Store #1 = 68 (I bought 4 figures from them last weekend).
Store #2 = 36 (Stockroom = "No")
Store #3 = 59
Store #4 = 180 (No self-check DCPI - stock"master" said they didn't have any)
Store #5 = 48
Store #6 = 259
Store #7 = 29
Store #8 = 41
Store #9 = 36
Store #10 = 118

I've been trying to get just 1 figure out of store #2 with no luck. Their stockroom is right next to the toy department and DPCI says "No", but listing says "36", meaning they have been very good model Target employees - Even a trip to the Customer Service desk with the "facts" that they had 36 on hand didn't work. They tried, but I've found that if the store leaves the location code for the product blank, then no-one "knows" where the product is located in the back room. They then have to get someone from the toy department, who denies ability to sell until their plan-o-gram reset on 3/25. These guys are good.
Store #4 doesn't have DCPI machines to punch, but the "receipt" from the other target stating they had 15 cases (180 figures) helped at least get a very nice employee to go into the back herself and try and find them. She then asks on the radio - only to have their stock location comes up blank. After coming from the back room, she was extremely polite with the same story on plan-o-gram resets on 3/25 and not being able to sell until then - she even offered me a coupon for discounts next time I came in, since she knew another Target had "sent" me there because they had a large amount of figures. I turned the coupon down and thanked her for being so patient and explaining me the plan-o-gram resets - as others have said in another location, anytime probably Friday through Sunday 3/23-25 stores may reset, depending upon their individual department management. Again - I was more into the "quest" of knowledge of their system than 1 figure (I reserved myself to limiting myself to only 1 figure if I was successful "breaking the code"). I didn't even try #5 - figured they were "good" too, as the counts indicated which stores were "cracked" and which were not. Then decided to try 1 other store that I had "cracked" twice before (3 figures one time, then 1 figure the next day to get 1 SBD that I didn't get in any previous trips). This time (Store #1) was up to the task of denying me. Actually saw the guy in the back drop all 6 cases from the top of the stack (15' to the floor), open all 6 cases, then come out and tell me the plan-o-gram story - why he did this, I have no clue. I thanked him for his time and was on my way.
I do think that because I was doing this on an afternoon during the week, when probably all of the "full-time" or "prime" employees are around, I had a greater chance of being denied. Maybe off-shift (late at night) on a Sat. night whey they can't get anyone to else to work this shift would work better, but I'm sick of Targets now.

TRU innundated us with SAGA Wave 1 last year - so much so you could still find it 3 months after release. I'm expecting pretty much the same thing w/ TAC Wave 1.

I do like the fact that w/ the new card design you can search the pegs much faster now that the figure pick is in the upper right corner. No more leafing through and knocking them all over the place.

How's this for a recent acquisition....

Wife's friend was over and see's all these SW figures on the floor (son = 7 = not good at picking up toys...). Say's her husband has a bunch of old SW stuff at home in the basement and they want to get rid of them. Friday afternoon, she brings by an original Millenium Falcon, original snowspeeder, tauntan, and about 15-20 figures, all dated 1977, 1978, and 1980. Everything opened and well played with, which was great, as he/we open all the new stuff anyway. Made my son's day, and mine. I was 10 when SW (ANH) opened, and my parents we not into toys (and "disposable income" wasn't a phrase invented yet...) They probably thought I was too old. My friend across the street, however, was 2 years younger, and he must have had 50 figures. I loved going over there and playing SW - that is what the 30th anniversary means to me, and to have it re-visited is priceless. I have no clue what the old stuff is worth, and they wouldn't take any $$$ for it, anyway.

He asked "is it cars?" WHen i said no, he was happy to help.

TRU:
1x Airborne
1x Marine

Walmart:
5x Marine
1x Mace
1x SBD

Walmart I hit last but it had at least 4-5 cases put out, filling the pegs entirely and then 2 stacks on the shelf underneath the pegs. It was a beautiful sight! I'm done with wave 1.

03-23-2007, 02:53 PM
Indeed - I hit pay dirt at a WM today as well - scoring the last figure I needed (the McQ Stormie). While none were on the pegs, there was a pallet of 10 cases of Wave 1 - an employee was kind enough to open a case for me and let me take the McQ Stormtrooper I wanted.

So by my count thats at least 20 Marines and 20 Troopers, as well as 9 McQs still sitting there.

Funny thing was there were also cases of the new Spiderman figures there - and she was careful to explain that she couldn't open those as they were to be released starting tomorrow. But apparently the SW figs were fair game!

First nice WM employee I've ever encountered!

vadarthdad
03-23-2007, 03:17 PM
Anakin - what WM had 10 cases? PM me if possible.

I'm frustrated - been checking WM and Target daily, but it looks like some folks must be living there....Manassas WM (Liberia) looks like it got 4 cases, but when I got there at noon, all McQ's were gone . AB and GM's were left, along with everthing else, but I just wanted a couple more McQ's....Manassas WM (66) was even worse - 4 cases, but by 3:00pm when I got there, no McQ, GM, or AT were left - just R2's, OW, and MW. The best part of this is that both Targets still don't have stuff on the shelves. So even though Target had the merchandise first, they were beat by WM who got it to the shelves faster.

Good news is that I got an epsisode 6 tin for $13 from Target and a shadow trooper for $10 from WM. Both WM and Target have tins on clearance (but the Manassas stores only had IV and VI. Target has BP's on sale, but I only found Ilum. There were 4-6 Felucia's at Manassas Wednesday, but by 9AM today, they were all gone. Anyone with a line on more tins (episode 1-3,5) on clearance would be great. Along with a line on a $13 Felucia.

Sorry about your back BL.

My local stores were picked-over in the afternoon - trip up 66 scored me the last two Tantive IV's I wanted (with 1 of each hair color in each pack! and two $5 gift cards!) Unfortunately for others, these were the last two, but they did have Vader Coinbooks on the shelf - probably at least 8.... No other TAC figures.

Thanks to Anakin21, while I was in the "area" relatively speaking, I hit the place he recommended and found "the pallet". Unfortunately, the pallet was in the back stockroom, but just in view of the doors. There was a loose R2 on the shelves, so I asked a worker if she had more - she spent 15 minutes checking, and said they are not where they should be in back, so no, they are out-of-stock. I then pointed to this pallet and said I think there are still some boxes on it with these figures inside. She asked me to come into the back and help her - I had my 2 kids in the cart, and felt really guilty, but hey, I was asked....I pointed to the boxes, and as we grabbed them, they were already opened - others had hit the stack after Anakin21 found them - they must have been out on the floor and then got moved just inside the door... We went through about 7 of the boxes before we found one that hadn't been picked through for McQuarrie and others. I can't take issue with that, however, as that was exactly what I wanted, so I opened this case and one more, got the last two McQ's that I wanted, plus a Mace and Obi-Wan to complete Wave 1. The girl said all of this stuff is considered over-stock and should be on the floor, especially since there were only 2 left on the pegs. There will be plenty of figures for the morning, but probably only 1 or 2 McQ's at best left - and from what I have seen today from 4 targets, 4 WM's, and 1 TRU, those will be gone by 8:15am tomorrow. I was hoping to find more $14-$15 tins at the targets and WM's, but no dice.

Just hit my local Target while picking up carry-out at 9PM. They were in the process of "re-organizing" not "re-setting" the toy isle. I asked the guy in charge if they were re-setting for 2007 TAC tonight and he said definitively - "No - the current plan is to re-set those and Spiderman 3 sometime mid-week next week." They are the 2nd local target to tell me this same story - mid next week vs. this weekend. He then showed me exactly where they would be. I asked if this was true for all Targets and he seemed to think so. My only hope is maybe they are waiting for Order 66 to hit so they can re-set simultaneously.

All I need is Order 66 and Saleucami BP...any leads other than Winchester for WM BP would be great...

Flacksguy - it might just be time to visit the Mother-in-Law soon, so keep us aware of the stock of these.

No order 66 no Commander Neyo very little Spiderman3...nothing.

After reading Pellaeon's post, i went to germantown Wally at lunch and picked up the treachery 2pack. All of wave 1 was there except for the clones and stormtrooper.
I also grabbed another galactic marine and airborne trooper from Rio target.

Order 66 is here!

Scored all 6 tonight at my local Target using DPCI! Previously (Sat/Sun) using DPCI's at 4 Targets were "No" for Stockroom. Today was "Yes" for stockroom at 2 of the Targets that Sat. said "No".

The impossible part to believe is that I got them from the Target that has been tighter than a snare-drum for TAC. They wouldn't budge on their TAC position for this week, and even have the computer set to Stockroom = "No" for DPCI for TAC. After getting "Yes" from the customer scanner/input device this evening, I went to the nearest employee in the electronic section (right near the stockroom door). I happend to ask someone not busy, but about 30 seconds before about 5 other customers walked up to her. She looked in the computer and told me that it was "street-dated" for 4/8. I said "I didn't think there was a street date." She said, "Ok, but that is when we are going to do our next reset." I said inquisitively, with a bunch of other customers standing around, "You have product in stock, that I am willing to purchase, but you don't want to sell it?" Right then, another younger employee walked up and the lady said - go find this for this guy and handed him her handheld scanner. I am sure it was pure luck/timing that I hit the right 2 people at the right time. I was very nice and polite the entire time, and just asked a couple of pointed questions. The nice boy brought out an entire case and I picked 1 of each and was on my way.

FYI - they are WAY cool. The packaging is neat, although much smaller tubes than I envisioned. I guess the photo's I saw made me think "unleashed" tubes...

TAC is finally trickling down in my area. I have also been checking the Target by where I work but they still have the pegs full of remnants from the last wave of Saga. It will be awhile before they put TAC out.

Anyways, I picked up the ones that I thought will go quick. And they are Galactic Marine, Lava Miner, Airborne Trooper, SBD, and I just picked up McQ Stormtrooper tonight at Target. An employee there was nice enough to go in the back and get it for me. Mad props to Target. I also picked up Darth Vader with the coin collection book. I think I will wait on the peg warmers which I'm sure most of us know what those are.

Vadartdad - Thanks for offering a lead on the Treachery on Saleucami but a local Walmart here has about 30 on an end cap. I'm holding off on this one too. I'm trying to retain myself with some self control this go around. And besides, if collecting this year is going to be anything like last year then there shoud be plenty to go around. I know its not a movie year, but from the last 2 years of collecting I have noticed this pattern. So no worries here.

I've noticed this also when looking at the figures. This is going to be a pain for me because now do I not only have to try and get the best looking card, I have to try and pick out the best looking coin also. I know this may sound anal, but that's just how I roll. All the ones I got so far are decent carded and coined.

And sometimes it does pay to badger/bother employees. I don't have to search for "McStormy", as he has been referred to, now! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

DARTHJOSEPH
03-29-2007, 03:13 PM
To each their own N_VA, I have guidlines I follow...

1.) Open EVERYTHING
2.) Never make a run just for figures
3.) Never ask an employee for stock
4.) Never pay a premium (only discount retail prices for figures) this includes ebay, scalper sites or any place charging full price.
5.) Buy NOTHING designed just to cash in (i.e. Order 66) unless that is I need the figs such as the tins.

Following these methods I have collected at least 1 of every figure (some exclusions but nothing I wanted) released since I started collecting.

I know some of you all check stock etc. and really thats great for you all but be warned, eventualy some of these stores will get tired of it and point to the old "employees cannot check stock on collectible items" It's working now but half those employees think you all are A-Holes!

But anyhow, I love the excitement of seeing something new on the pegs. 1/2 the reason I collect is the chance and fun of it.

Goodluck to all you MOC collectors as this is gonna be a hell of a year since NONE of the coins are gonna be mint, I repeat NONE! Must be the manufacturing method.

vadarthdad
03-29-2007, 08:22 PM
For N_VA and DARTHJOSEPH - concur, with the following rules for me:

1.) Open EVERYTHING (except...)
2.) Always stop by any Target/WM/TRU/KM/KB. Sometimes go out of your way to get there.
3.) Always ask an employee who isn't busy to help - It's their job....just be nice.
4.) Pay whatever it takes to satisfy your desire.
5.) Buy what you like.

On #1/4/5 - I must admit, being relatively new to collecting with my 7yr old son, he (nor I) knew nothing about VOTC until last year, and then the Stormtrooper was already gone. So I did cave and buy a couple from e-bay for $10-15 each, and no - they are not opened.

On #2 - I live between two targets 10 miles apart. Sometimes, I take the long way home from work just so I can hit both and see what they have. This ride takes me past a WM, a TRU, and a KM, so I hit those sometimes, too.

More #2 - I've even been known to suggest a visit to the Mother-In-Law's 45 miles away (especially if Flacksguy says they have new product in Winchester that isn't in Northern VA)!!!

Glassman6
03-30-2007, 08:52 AM
Well, i feel that if you walk in a store and they ask can i help you find something... Then why cant you let them help you?
And who decides what is collectable and what is just a toy? I could care less about hotwheeles. They are collectibles to others, no me. To me they are just toy cars.

I open everything eventually. I open them when i have time to sit around and enjoy looking at them.
So i have TAC waiting to be opened, but i will open them.
But it shouldnt matter what i do with them. if you spend your money on them, you should be able to do what you want with them. Sell em, burn em, hit them with a hammer!

That being said, I waited for Columbia target to get 66, but after a week of nothing and after pelleaon said G-burg had em, i went there this morning and asked an employee ( who was impressed that i memorized the DCPI) to help. She did and i got 5 of the 6 sets. I didnt ask for her to go back to get the one i was missing cause that "to me" would have been over doing it.
I'll get it some other time.

There are no rules to this. There is no "one way" to collect toys.
They have barcode generators that you can print out and then take to the store to be scanned to see of an item is in stock!! This is the future of collecting? It no longer go and see what you can find. Hasbro said it themselves. Its a HUNT!

Whomever was the first to decide to use the DCPI, kudos to him.

Happy Hunting Folks!!

03-30-2007, 09:08 AM
Wow. I didn't mean to start a flaming war, but I agree with Glassman. The only reason I asked an employee to get McStormy was the fact that this figure is hot right now and I really don't have the time to search as much as I used to. Besides, it is their job to help. Target is the best at helping people and you really have to catch a good employee at Walmart to help. TRU is good at helping also. I don't think the employees think that your are an A-hole unless you are the annoying person that bothers them everyday. I normally don't ask and I enjoy finding them on the pegs too it's just that I really haven't had the time here lately. That is all.

DARTHJOSEPH
03-30-2007, 09:17 AM
Hey guys, I wasn't trying to offend anyone or ask for any particular justification about anyone's particular collecting habits. I was just pointing out my sttategy and how it differs from most collectors and to show that you don't have to go everyday to multiple stores and ask for stock to get every figure available. There is definately this "implied rarity" with Star Wars toys. Everyone is in such a panic to find thigs first for fear they won't be available. This just isn't the case. I know that it can be frustrating searching for weeks for a figure that everyone knows is out there but Hasbro has done an amazing job at distribution and with their Battle Packs and H&V and all the repack lines it is really not hard at all to find every figure in a line. For example raise you hand if you spent hours trying to finds a "Tactical Op's or Shock Trooper" during ROTS just to find them clogging the pegs all fall/winter this year?

The strategy I use and laid out earlier is proof that a relaxed casual collecting method is just a successful as a daily/checking stock/buying from scalpers method that many, many fans use.

Not a critisicm guys just an observation. And we all know how many threads and posts there are on these boards discussing scaplers, employess that won't check stock etc. etc. People in this very thread have ranted and complained about these exact things!

Just to leave you a tip: The worst star wars collector is the one store employees recognize. Your methods may work for you now, but as more and more people use these methods more and more retail stores will be less and less worried about satisfying a crazed obsesed adult toy collector.

Goodluck and happy hunting...or badgering http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Everyone is in such a panic to find thigs first for fear they won't be available.



I dont do it out of panic, I do it out of wanting to get the wave overwith so i can stop hunting and lesiuerly drive to work as opposed to leaving the house early so i can hunt. I dont hunt during the weekends cause thats my families time. If i go to the store for diapers or formula, i will look. But during the week, when its just me in the car, i can stop everyday. I dont.( 2 or 3 times a week usually) But i collect Justice league too and those, you gotta be there when the case is opened. They pack new figs 1 per case now.



I know that it can be frustrating searching for weeks for a figure that everyone knows is out



Exactly why I get the employees help. The figures are there to be bought. SO if a DCPI lets me buy them, or asking an employee if there are more in stock, then so be it.

As a matter of fact. I used ask employees before the use of the dcpi. Years before( i've been collecting since 1996). The DCPI only keeps me from sending them on a goose-chase. As i said i a previous post. I am curtious, i wait for them to offer the help and i dont bother the same employee twice. They always seem happy to help.

I think people forget that they are a "SERVICE" idustry. Remember butcher shops where you would go and ask for the cut of meat you want. Was that Bothering the butcher? Even in the store today there is still a bell to ask the guys behind the glass for something specific.
When you go and look at cars, do you take what is on the lot or do you ask for what you want? Its all about customer sercive and we are the customers.

BTW DarthJOe, i took no offense at all, nor am i saying your plan of action wont work, i just have my own as do others.
Like i said there is no ONE way to collect.

I too get a thill from seeing new stuff on the pegs, but i get a bigger thrill of seeing them in my cabinet.

( As i type this, i am fighting the urge to go back to target and get the 1 set of Order 66 i didnt get. Since i know its there... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif )

Pretty much ditto to Glassman. Not only does a constant hunt hurt family time, it kills the wallet with gas funds.

Anakin21
03-30-2007, 02:57 PM
Just as aside - I didnt read any of your posts as flaming - but as a casual discussion of collecting habits. Its that sort of casualness that makes me prefer the local board here to some of the more generalized public ones where there are some pretty sensitive/opinionated posters!

DarthJoe did say something that resonated with me - and that was his point about casual collecting. Before I discovered RS - which was right before ROTS - I had been collecting basic figs for a couple years or so - since the AOTC SAGA line - so I had no idea what product was out there aside from what I'd encounter casually while shopping for other stuff and from what was on the back of the cards.

When I finally got on RS and printed off their comprehensive checklist - I was totally expecting to discover a ton of gaps in my basic figure collection - only to find that I had found probably about 95% of everything at retail already! Including variants!

Since joining RS ive become somewhat more of a "hunter" in the sense that now I know in advance what to look for - and I think that definitely has taken away from some of the enjoyment I had when just casually collecting. But in the end - I do prefer being part of a collecting community - even if it means that Im now "that guy" reciting a DCPI number at 8:01am! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Anyway, I think I may be the token MOMC guy here. I havent opened a single figure ever! Although my standard of "mint card" isnt exactly that high. And I've been pretty good at sticking to just basics, although i've expanded from single cards to multipacks, and during a product drought last summer I started collecting Titanium vehicles. But thats where it stops!

DARTHJOSEPH
03-30-2007, 03:26 PM
These posts have been a lot of fun to read! I was just surprised at the replies and thought I should make it very clear I'm not flamming or disrespecting anyone here. You all have been great help and fun to talk with.

In regards to gas...that's why I NEVER make just a figure run and really only go when I go out for lunch @ work (maybe 2 times a week) or Sunday monings when I go grocery shopping (everyone is busy at Church and no one is at Wal Mart, Target or the Grocery Store. I would also NEVER drive somewhere way out of the way to get a figure. To be honest I was much like everyone else when I started and over the years I've realized and it seems that Anakin21's post also confirms that slow and steady can also win the race! I don't rush to complete as I have a hard time justifying $100 worth of Star Wars in one week just because they were there. Like with this years releases...Got the McQ the minute I saw it, then the clones, then R2./..ect. I prioritize and plan rather than go out blind everyday wasting time and gas. i used to go everyday afterwork and day after day - NOTHING. Then I stopped the dailies and BAM! very next time the entire wave I'd been desperate to find!

And yes...retail is a service industry BUT...they get paid crap wages, work long hours, and get treated like crap every day. I worked for a major bookseller it was common practice to help a customer, go in the back to "see if we have that in stock" and just shoot the s**t with the recieving department...NEVER looking for their book. You will and probably already have experienced this wether you realized it at the time or not. Also a few years or so ago the DCPI# was hardly ever mentioned now everyone is using them...Target employees with start to recognize you, get sick and tired of you asking about Star Wars toys every other day or week and just start telling you "No, sorry not in stock." This is just a fact of retail life people. I'm just warning you before I read the "stupid target won't get me stuff out ot the back or pull something from a reset early" post we have seen in the past and will see more and more in the future http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

03-30-2007, 07:20 PM
I was not intending to flame anyone either, just highlighting that my collecting habits are different. I too am enjoying this discussion. I am probably one of the worst offenders of driving around, using DCPI's, etc., but that's because I am relatively new to collecting SW and it has been a fun 2 weeks seeing how some of these retail stores operate. I too tend to wait until I am asked if I need help. I have been at the scanner typing in the code and that usually draws attention - I am typically asked immediately if I need help - I tell them what I am looking for and it's their choice how they respond. This week I had mixed reactions - one girl said she couldn't help me as they were not allowed to search for individual figures. One guy was willing to go into the stockroom and open a fresh case and get a specific figure - that is customer service!

I passed two targets and 1 TRU today and I found about 40 different TAC. Didn't buy a thing, but did note that of 40 figures, there were probably only 3 that a collector would have bought - 1 GM, 1 LM, 2 AT, and the rest R2, Mace, and Obi-Wan peg-warmers - a good reason to use DPCI if you don't enjoy the "pressure" of not finding what you want immediately - and that is what it is for me - the need for immediate gratification in finding everything quickly...just in case. I'll still stop, look, and let folks know what I found, but my buying is done until Wave 2. I even pre-ordered it, but will still Hunt, as that is what it is - a Hunt. FYI - I have yet to see a McStormie on the shelves in 2 weeks at about 20 different store visits. I don't need any more, but I still like looking for them, just for the hunt. You guys have all been big helps, and since I am relatively new, I appreciate the feedback, and the relative newness will probably wear off by Wave 4... along with $3/gal gas....

PS - I got my BOGO Bantha's today from TRU.

FYI - TRU at Fairlakes had the Endor AT/AT and X-wings for those who didn't get them at X-mas.

Columbia target has TAC on the pegs. I grabbed an extra GM this morning. NO MC-S No AT...but everyone else. NO ORDER 66 at all. No even in the system.

I stopped at G-burg target to see if they had 66 out but they didnt. I was asked by an employee if i needed help. He "happily" went to get the Mace pack for me. The only one i didnt get last time.
I then asked him, if i was being a bother by asking him to get it from the back. He said no, its his job.

As i was heading for the cash register, i thought, he was probably just saying it so i didnt report him for bad service, so I asked a random person emptying boxes and made it clear that i was not gonna ask him to get anything i was just wondering if it was bothersome. He said " its part of what we are supposed to do anyway, May bother some, but it doesnt bother me. Then at the Cash register, i see a manager who says hi to me regularly ( i guess he recongizes me from my many visits). I asked if i was bothering the floor support if i ask them to pull an item from the stock room. He said no, just give a person with the "hand computer" the number and they will, or will have someone get it for you.

Now i'm not saying to go to target and argue with them if they wont get it for you. But i cant see how being polite and saying yes to "can i help you find something" is bothersome. And I say thank you at least twice. When they head for the back, when i see them emerge with or without a box. I say thanks or thanks anyway... and as i walk away with my grubby hands full of goodies, i say thanks again.

SO just be polite and we can all use the codes. ( if you want to)

Got all of the Order 66 packs today. Also scored the new Titaniums that I wanted (Sail Barge and Imperial Cruiser). Also saw remnants of the Appo Wave. I used the DCPI for the Order 66 packs - but only after an employee had approached me to see if I needed help. I was actually debating whether I was going to use it (partly b/c I wasnt sure i wanted to drop the $$$ on them today) - but ended up having the decision made for me. So much for self control!

As of yesterday the Rt. 7 Target was having a sale on SAGA Basics priced at $5.34 (IIRC) but only had remannts of Appo wave on the pegs. That same Target also had the Order 66 packs out - but were only up front by the registers - and there were only 3 left.

Scored all of wave 2 TAC using the DPCI today at Laurel, MD Target, but now for the unpleasantries of Target lying... I had an incident Wed, where I had a guy in elect(GB Target) check the #, tell me nothing was in the back...went up front to cust. service, had them run the same # and whamo, brought out a fresh case of wave 1(which I poliely refused, since I already had). Today I called around; Laurel told me they had a #10 on the pegs...made me curious enough to have them run the#...told me nothing was left. When I went to p/u my #10 rebel sentry, I ran the DPCI# with the store scanner...guess what, a half opened box still in the back. Considering Order 66 pretty much sold out of the backroom, I don't know what Target's posture now is on us calling...whether they're being told to blow us off, or they're just plain tired of all of us calling with #'s. My feeling is a sale is a sale...you can't sell merchandise when it's in the backroom. That's as viable as many Targets telling collectors to check back on April 8(yes, that's Easter Sunday & they're closed!!!) for order 66 two-packs and being sadly disappointed. Any similar horror stories from the wonderful world of retail.

04-06-2007, 11:58 AM
No such horror stories here - I've encountered nothing but helpful employees. Must be my rugged good looks! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Thats the first sighting of Wave 2 I've heard about in the area - so thats good news. Or bad news, considering how most of the Targets ive been to are still clogged w/ Wave 1 Obi's and R2s and SAGA remnants. Hoping TRU gets its act together in time to deliver on the next few TAC waves.

Hello everybody, I'm back after having emergency back surgery last week. I walked in to the hospital to see the Neurosurgeon for the first time and discuss my MRI results and it took the Doc only about 5 minutes to determine that I needed surgery and needed it right away http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif. And the recovery has turned out to be a lot more painful than I had hoped it would be http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif even though the Doc warned me it was gonna hurt for several weeks due to the amount of nerve damage.
I took pain pills and bummed a ride to get out for a little while this morning and go to Target to look around, just had to get out of the house even if it was just for a little while. I got there just in time to see them reset the Order 66 display with three sets at one of the check out area displays. I bought one of each except the K Trooper, that paint app is just nasty http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif and left 2 more full sets there at about 1030 hrs. This was at the Target at Springfield Mall and the display was on the ground floor. I also found/bought a couple of ROTJ tins on clearance for $6.24 each, was I ever surprised, that's the only tins I have ever seen on clearance http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif. Overall a great trip to Target and a nice mental boost for my recovery http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif.

The only TAC basic figs out were pegwarmers and a couple of Vader/Coin Albums.

Also, my wife bought me the Sith Infiltrator and V Wing vehicles on sale at Target for $17.99 each while she has been out of town. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Later, and good luck in the hunt...looks like TAC Wave 2 is about to hit town.

No Wave 2 yet in Northern VA that I can find.
For those following my previous posts, here is a figure count by date (3/15;3/26;4/6):
#1: 36/36/3 ( 36 on 3/15, 36 on 3/26, 3 on 4/6)
#2: 68/40/4
#3: 59/49/47
#4: 180/180/115
#5: 48/36/5
#6: 259/254/179
#7: 29/8/8
#8: 41/35/15
#9: 36/36/9
#10: 118/na/0 (I'm not sure I believe this one)

As you can see, all of these have had decreasing figure counts. I'm making the assumption, based on hitting 3-4 local targets that don't have any Wave 2, that all that remain are Wave 1. I've also spoken with 2 very nice Target employees who actually called the back stock room and they went to the boxes and checked and only have ones marked Wave 1. I also ran into one very mean target employee who said they will not hold any product or tell me what they have over the phone, I'll need to drive to their store to find out! Not one of the ones listed above - it was a previously mentioned MD one....

04-06-2007, 07:36 PM
Darth Joseph...some of these posts have been rather on the long side of things...so I'm not sure what you mean exactly by I TOLD YOU SO. In my neck of the woods, new cases have been far & few between. I'm competing with many fellow collectors & scalpers, ebayers & Hot Wheelers alike. If you're referring to the Target comments concerning use of DCPI #'s...I say to each his own. Some people have been extremely generous with their time, looking up items on their guns, etc. Others, well...you read my post. I work 7AM-2PM Mon. thru Fri. I have a small window of opportunity to go hunting for new stuff. I have a special needs child I pick up from school every day, so hoping I'm going to find the newest wave on the weekend isn't always enough. Those Target scanning machines are storewide for a reason...the employees sure don't need them. I'll take my chances with the DPCI #'s until the stock situation rights itself. I share my posts to try to save you guys gas, or to tip you off so you can turn up the heat in your searching by hearing from us what's out & what's not. You all have helped me in the same way. Usually DC & VA get 'em first, and that tells me MD is a day or so away. It wasn't the case today. And WalMart hasn't had squat. I would accept your theory, except that 1/2 of wave 1 I've never seen at retail past the day in March I found them all at K-mart on a Friday, and again, as luck would have it, I was off. Sometimes timing IS everything. But I don't enjoy the hunting as much as when I could walk into Lionel Kiddie City and find anything I was looking for on any given day. To each his own...these forums should be about helping each other, and not a critique of our individual M.O.'s for obtaining what we want.

Dont fret DarthJoe, THey will be online in two months.
If not, the scalpers who by them by the cases will have so many that you can get them for the same price as hasbro/shop star wars. I got my 501st on ebay for less than shopstar wars.

Plus I think that Hasbro/SSW does it to stick it to the scalpers. Same philosophy as repacking/repainting some of those "used to be" hard ot find figs.

That is part of the problem. I want to sit on all the collecting panels, because about 4 of them really interest me but I really want to complete that 12 coin set. 2nd is GG, 3rd priority is the Hasbro figs.

Columbia target. I was talking to a worker and he said they put out figs 3 times a day. I went after work to test his theory and there were The same obi and R2 figs but they had galactic maines also. So i think they put out the wave bit by bit. Yesterday they had the Airborne trooper and Battle droid and lava miner (and the same r2's and obi wans)

There was another guy in the isle with me this morning saying he was looking for glactic heoroes.. maybe he grabbed what was there and they put out more?

Over the past 2 weeks i have seen every figure form the 1st wave there at least twice, except for the Concept stormie.

TRU had nothing this evening though. Neither Columbia nor G-burg.

That was me! Too funny to finally bump into someone on this forum. Thanks for offering up the single trooper even though you grabbed it first. I still haven't found the GHs as that is all I collect now... might have to wait until Hasbro puts them online and just get them there. If you find them grab me a set and shoot me a PM. I know your looking for the McQFett so if I see an extra I will grab it. My neighbor across the street already asked me in my searchs to grab one for him. BTW - you might want to (along with everyone else in the tri-area) join the DCSWCC (http://www.dcswcc.com) as there is a large base of people in our organization.

I checked the Targets in Columbia, Laurel and the one off of 108 with no luck. Saw a single V-Wing at the 108 one. Also saw the new SW transformers at the Laurel one along with a bent-up TAC1 McQTrooper.

Also went to the TRU in Columbia yesterday and found out something interesting... they had one person working register in the entire store - no sales people and there was one guy working in bike assembly - that was it. In talking with the Bike guy I found out that they don't have $ to pay employees to work so now they are on skeleton crews. So I think it might be a good sign that this TRU is going to close in the coming months.

Thats too bad. I know alot of people have their gripes with TRU - but I for one never mind giving it my business. Its a shame however that their distribution model makes it so hard for me to actually give them my business.

I guess its nostalgia from when I was a kid and how TRU always felt like some sort of paradise - I always wanted to win that contest where you got to run through with a cart and grab as much stuff as you could.

Anway, I was actually just in one the other day, around 6pm ish - and I think I was the only shopper in there. It was kind of sad.

All that aside - still seeing plenty of Order 66 - but thats about it Target wise.

More TAC Wave 2 spotted today. Both of my local Targets got shipments - get this - 1 case at each - both REVISION cases! Wave 2 Revision 1 (using EE as the reference)! What stinks about this is only 1 McFett in these, making McFett even harder to find!

For those keeping score, one of these Targets got 1 case of Wave 2 on Wednesday AM - gone by Wed. PM. Friday AM got 1 case of Wave 2 Rev 1. The other Target got no regular Wave 2 and went right to Wave 2 Rev 1. Checking their system, they only had those 12 figures showing under DPCI. I thought maybe they got a bunch of cases and accidentally pegged the wrong one, but no dice - they just got 1 case of each. Had them pull the DPCI on the other local targets, and they don't show any change in figure counts from earlier in the week, meaning Wave 2 has only hit Manassas and Gainsville.

Came back from my week in the Carolinas and went straight to Target for the one Order 66 set that I was after. Lucky for me they had plenty. The Vader/Bow set is a great deal, 10 bucks for the best Vader ever made and a cool looking clone commander!!
Guess I missed wave 2 at TRU. No big deal, I'll get them at Target or Wal-Mart when they show up. If they distribute them half as well as wave 1, I won't have a problem at all.

Fairlakes Target has plenty of Order 66 - I counted 63 on the endcap at the register - all types. They also have plenty of TAC Wave 1 - no McStorm on the pegs, but all others.
Fairlakes WM has nothing.
Fairlakes TRU has nothing.
If anyone works and/or lives near Fairlakes, PM me - I may have some intel that could be of use.

I did find 2 HW Batmobiles while I was out, so I snagged them. I'm up to 10. 9 unopened. PM me if anyone really wants one and can't find it.

That was me! Too funny to finally bump into someone on this forum.



Well, good to meet you lzzy. I almost asked if you were on the forums but so many people tell me no, that i stopped asking.

Not a problem on the offer, i was grabbing it for another collector, so if you needed it i would have let you take it.
I still havent seen him its been sitting in my car for days.

I saw nothing at columbia target or TRU today around 2pm.

Maybe next week...

No TAC today at the Potomac Mills, Dumfries, Manassas, or Gainsville Targets. Did find an unopened case of 2006 Wave 8 Rev. 4 sitting on a hand truck waiting to be pegged, so I got the Appo - at least it wasn't all wasted.

Here is the updated figure count by date list if anyone cares....(3/15;3/26;4/6;4/11;4/12;4/12;4/13;4/15):
#1: 36/36/3/12/0/12/3 ( 36 on 3/15, 36 on 3/26, 3 on 4/6, 12 on 4/11 (first case of Wave 2), 0 on 4/12, 12 on 4/13 (2nd case, but W2R1), 3 on 4/15)
#2: 68/40/4/1/1/13/2 (1 case of W2R1)
#3: 59/49/47/37/37/37/34 (no movers here)
#4: 180/180/115/73/70/69/62 (no signs of W2)
#5: 48/36/5/0/0/0/3 (no clue)
#6: 259/254/179/168/166/166/139 (Assume plenty of Wave 1)
#7: 29/8/8/1/1/1/0
#8: 41/35/15/14/0/0/0 (No W2 yet)
#9: 36/36/9/7/0/0/0 (No W2 yet)

Using this, my rudimentary analysis indicates Store #8 and #9 (Potomac Mills and Dumfries) are due to get Wave 2 very soon - Manassas and Gainville were out of TAC last weekend and got their first shipments last week - so let's assume these will follow. No way I can get out there during the week, so good luck to anyone there. Store #7 is Sterling - they look like they are due next week, too - also too far for weekday travel.

Anyone still looking for Wave 1 should hit Fair Lakes (#4) and Reston (#6), as they have the highest figure counts that haven't increased (implying they still have Wave 1 and have not yet received Wave 2). This is probably the last time I will do this, I'm could start an excel spreadsheet graphing Northern Virgina TAC consumption by geographical Target dispersion, but no-one else is probably using this data. However - it did help me target my two closest Targets for a window of opportunity, and allowed me to complete Wave 2 with two complete sets - one already opened and one backup.

Darthdad - I have to say I am very impressed at how you've converted hunting into a consumer science of sorts! Well done!

Of note - I still havent seen a single McQuarrie figure on the pegs - so if anyone happens to score an extra MOMC McFett please keep me in mind!

Nothing new at WB Target today except a fresh case of order 66 put out at the checkout area. I had checked their system last week and it showed no stock for the Order 66 so it looks like they got another shipment or somebody returned a whole case full http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Manassas WM toy manager said she thinks it will be at least 2 weeks before they have any more TAC. Said the manufacturer (Hasbro) hasn't even shipped them to their distribution center yet. Don't know if she was made that up, or if she has factual information.

Per phone calls, no new TAC at Manassas, Gainsville, Dumfries, or Potomac Mills Target today.

I think she is right. My Walmart manager said the samething.

Picked up 2 more Appos at Target while I was looking for wave 2 today.
The 501st are my favorite clone style, so it's hard for me to pass these up when I see them.

North & south Glen Burnie Targets finally got mid-size vehicles restocked...but alas, no V-wing or Sith...just old hailfire, white Tie, etc.

Traveled past 4 Targets and at least 2 TRU's today and didn't even bother to stop and look, wasting too much gas and time on wave 2. Time to order a case from EE and forget about it.

2 McFetts last night at TRU (Fairlakes).
1 McFett/1 McStormie this AM at Manassas Target - left the rest of the Wave 2 revision case.
1 McFett/1 McStormie this AM at Gainsville Target - left the rest of the Wave 2 revision case.

Not a bad day. 4 McFett's, 2 McStormies. At what point do I stop?

Columbia target had Wave2 or at least some of it this morning.
I was able to get Concept Fett, Luke , Han and DS trooper. One of each.
The pegs were full with wave 1 even concept stormie, so i guess they didnt have room to put out all of the wave. So I am missing the Honor guard and Biggs.

So, hopefully by next week i'll get the other 2 figs i need.

Nice find. I hit there about 10:30 and they had nothing... still looking for a McFett and the newest GHs.

Sidenote:
TRU in Annapolis has TAC Wave 1
Target in Columbia - reminants of TAC Wave 1
Target in Laurel (off 198) - nothing

I did find 2 HW Batmobiles while I was out, so I snagged them. I'm up to 10. 9 unopened. PM me if anyone really wants one and can't find it.





Who and the hell needs 10 batmobiles-- of course no one can find them- you are buying them all.

I was just looking on Shopstarwars and I think it must have been the Wave2 caseC revision.
Cause those were the exact figures on the pegs. SO maybe i didnt miss biggs or Guard.

Well hopefully i will get them soon.

...and based on a post above, all the McQuarrie concepts in the area too.
