I guess someone is trying to tell us something since the old thread was locked. Go ahead and post your recent finds/info here.


I haven't found anything new in a while, although I haven't really been looking. When I have gone to the stores they are all still pretty bare.
Got a few things in the mail from other scummers however, including an $8.00 ARC-170 that was missing only one missile, and a $5.00 AT-AT that was missing the side door.

Yeah, I tried to post 2 days ago, but forum was locked up. This was a revision 7.5 case evidently, since they weren't all there when I was in.

Picked up the jedi starfighter at toyrus and got 2 of the three walmart comic 2 packs - boba and clone. Still no luck on wave 7.5 or rebel trooper

Ive seen the same 7.5 revision case at several Targets now too.

jedisquared
01-15-2008, 01:04 PM
Laurel, MD Target off 295/198 had 7.5 revision wave. Holo Vader, 7th Legion & Hawkbat troopers, Animated Fett & Starkiller Hero all there as of 12 noon.

Ran out at lunch and picked up the clone and boba comic packs from germantown wally. They had lots of them.

vadarthdad
01-16-2008, 05:35 PM
TRU had the McTrooper wave. Left all (I'm done) but moved McTrooper to the overhead.... Target had the holo vader Wave. Spent $12 on one from HTS a few weeks ago and now there were 2 on the pegs... figures.

DarthSmittyous
01-16-2008, 09:39 PM
I looked around in Woodbridge this evening. TRU had practically nothing... just some Saga Clones and Stormtroopers. WM had lots of left over Saga figures, nothing all that interesting. I did find some new figures (to me anyway) at Target. I picked up a McQuarrie Starkiller Hero. The card is perfect but the bubble was crunched a little. I passed on a couple of Hawkbat Clones, 7th Legion Clones, R2-D2, Tattooed Anakin, C-3PO/Salacious and a Ewok two-pack.

I haven't been looking much lately, but it was nice to find the Starkiller Hero. I think I just need the Snowtrooper and Han to finish the McQuarrie series.

Glassman6
01-17-2008, 09:52 AM
I was wondering if there was a clonetrooper/stormtrooper wave cause that is practically all target in columbia has on the pegs.
Walmart columbia is barren. Just like last year after christmas till april. Hope this year they get some stuff sooner. They dont even have the new comic packs that are at every other wally (so i'm reading)

Anakin21
01-17-2008, 10:32 AM

Sent you a PM Smitty - I have an extra McQ Snowtrooper if you want it.

Arundel Mills WalMart also had Force Unleashed BP's today. Of course...now that the game's delayed again...who knows about other tie-in merchandise.

01-18-2008, 05:10 PM
I know this is off topic but I am selling my entire collection because I need some money. The prices are very flexible and I am willing to meet up or ship. Please take a look. It saddens me to see them go but I have to do it.

Columbia Target had wave 7.5 in, including R2-B1 & Holo Vader; also restocked Mighty Muggs series 1(I just don't get the appeal of these) & SW bobbleheads. No clearance items. North Glen Burnie WalMart also had 7.5 remnants, including rebel vanguard trooper, Hawkbat cloner & 7th Legion trooper.

Flacksguy
01-30-2008, 10:47 AM
Check your Wal-Marts today guys!
I found scattered bits of the new wave between two stores. One store had 2 Tri-Droids, Commander Gree, Po Nudo, 2-1B, plus a couple of Anakins which I left behind, and another store had a Kashyyyk Trooper and Mustafar Droid.
They were all mixed in with a ton of older figures:
Holo Vaders, McQuarrie Rebels and Snowtroopers, Hawkbats, Brown Stain Clones, Jangos, Training Clone...
The pegs were jam packed, but there was only one of each of the new figures.

jedisquared
01-30-2008, 01:12 PM
Been there, done that! Scored all 8(wasn't expectin' these to hit til the w/e) TAC 2008 wave 1 at north Glen Burnie WalMart.

South Glen Burnie WalMart had new SW/BG Titanium wave: AT-OT, desert skiff, etc. Arundel Mills WalMart had new Force Unleashed Battlepacks. Happy hunting...2008 is here!

i guess i'll risk my life going to the port covington store after work maybe that yoda will still be there too

jedisquared
01-30-2008, 02:41 PM
...and the scariest thing is, I didn't get there till 12 noon. I just don't think they're putting them out first thing anymore. Good luck at Port Covington. I didn't hit Bowie, but may try Rte. 40 stores tomorrow.

valin_horn
01-30-2008, 05:53 PM

Well don't bother with Bowie Wal Mart or Target tonight. The only thing new was the Droid Factory pack at WM and the and titanium classic Galactica at Target.

ADDENDUM: You can also steer clear of the Crofton K-Mart...but that's a given.

vadarthdad

I found a lone Gree at my local WM. Mixed with a bunch of random other stuff, including McRebel and McSnowy. Just grabbed the Gree. Very odd.

I picked up a Holo Vader this evening at the Target in the Springfield Mall. They had several other new-ish figures, but the Vader was the only I was looking for. Is it just me or does the Jedi Spirit Anakin look a little... umm... feminine? His robe looks like a dress.

1zzy
01-31-2008, 10:24 PM
Val Horn:
What are you looking for specifically? To wear or to display? What type - FX, GF, TE? How accurate? Sandie or Clean?

You should be able to pickup a set from eBay for cheap ~$500 and then have to put it together. With shoes and all it will come close to $1000 for starters. Shoot me a PM and I can try to hook you up or at least set you down the path to the dark side...

jedisquared
02-02-2008, 04:55 PM
For anyone still interested in the Battlefront II sets that may not want to pay shipping, or buy both just to get the clone set...they were both in stock(39.99@) at Books-A-Million & F.Y.E. in Arundel Mills Mall today. If you have a Books-A-Million card, you can get 10% off.

I again found a lone 2008 W1 figure at WM - surgical droid. The odd thing is this, and Gree, didn't scan - had to ring-in manually.

I'm not sure why they are showing one-at-a-time at this WM, unless a pallet is being opened around 11pm and there is only room for 1 fig and the rest are shelved by 6am opening - at 6am there are no pallets on the floor in toys.

ywlowe
02-04-2008, 07:09 PM
I had the same issue with the Surgical Droid and Anakin for the 2008 Wave 1 at Walmart today.

FYI: As of 4 PM today, North Glen Burnie had 3 McRebel Troopers if anyone is hunting for that scarce figure.

There were some Wiis sitting in Columbia target monday morning. I almost mentioned it but i figured the hunt for these died down. I also saw some in Germantown Target yesterday.

I was able to score all the new force unleashed evolutions packs at Gaithersburg TRU. Sith, Jedi, Mandalorian and Sith apprentice. Only had 1 of each.

I still havent seen the new comic packs or wave1 2008.
Columbia Wally sucks.

Anakin21
02-13-2008, 06:33 PM
Haven't seen Wave 1 2008 either - haven't found the WM Comic Packs either - much to my annoyance. Seems my usual WMs have been terrible at restocking.

And you are usually the first to report finds Vadarth.
Flacks too, and havent heard of any new finds from him either in a while.

What sucks is that TRU seems to be getting new stuff, but i'm at work when they open. Yesterday was a fluke due to the govt. 2hr delay.

Flacksguy
02-14-2008, 01:33 PM
I found the newest wave two weeks ago, the one with Gree and the Tri-Droid, but no, nothing since then. I was out yesterday and today looking for the new EVO sets but didn't find anything. I even saw the Hasbro rep, but she said there wasn't anything new in the back.

jedisquared

Thanks for the head's up. Haven't been checking, as the drill has been they've been at retail first! Haven't seen these at retail, so bought 5. Wish I could have gotten 2 of each trooper...oh well.

Found the new Evolutions sets at WM this AM. Got the force unleashed and the sith. Left the jedi. Only 1 of each. No 2008 figs.

Flacksguy
02-21-2008, 08:33 PM
Did they have the Fett Evolutions darthdad?
Hopefully these will turn up on HTS. Thats what I've been checking everyday for. I'm still kicking myself for not ordering the two new vehicles when they were available.


I posted some pictures over in the Limelighting and Display (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=3089897&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1&vc=1&PHPSESSID=) section, if anyones interested.

Anything new at local Targets? TRU get cleaned too often as it seems and there are much less of them around too.

jedisquared
02-24-2008, 05:17 AM
Yes to the 5th, no to anything new at Targets & even other WalMarts. Everybody seems to be getting more wave 7.5 in(even saw some wave 6 pop up). I found 2008 wave 1 about a month ago at north GB Wally...and haven't seen anymore anywhere since! I know alot of people have been trying HTS & BBTS.

Found all 4 new Evo packs at TRU over the weekend. Picked up the Fett one, but passed on all the others.

If anyone has any extra WM exclusive comic packs, I'd be happy to work out some sort of trade + buy arrangement.

Skv0124
02-25-2008, 11:46 PM
Which TRU and which CPs are WM exclusives? I've been to Bethesda TRU and there was absolutely nothing. Also Germantown WM and again, absolutely nothing. I gave up on Targets, but please keep up the updates and locations.

And many thanks for that Flacks! Very much appreciated! Not seeing much new stock lately. Saw some 07' legends w/ the new sticker. Otherwise, most places seem overdue for some new stock.

Skv0124
02-27-2008, 12:10 AM
Could any of you guys please pick up extra Evo sets for me? Could probably meet up locally too. I'm primarily looking for Sith and Fett Legacies and the Vader's Apprentice. Also Rahm Kota of all the FU line.

02-27-2008, 11:13 PM
Finally finally... After looking everyday for the last couple of weeks I found a set of evolutions. At the K-mart on belair rd of all places. If you guys find them at kmart one thing you may want to watch out for is the unleashed set showed up 32.99 for me so I had to go to customer service and have them match it to the rest. Also has anyone seen the new gi joe packs around here. I need the twins tomax and xamot and wild weasel and ace(my neice crushed mine before i got to hang them up)

Check your WM's in the AM! Found 4 cases of 2008 Wave2R1 at one of my WM's tonight! Got 1 of each of the new ones, plus an extra Evo, Jump, and Guard. Plus they had 2 cases of Evolutions, so I got the Fett set. Also stopped at the other WM and they also had 1 case of 2008 W2R1, but all that was left on the top of the pallet was the empty box.

Went back to the WM with the 4 cases (minus 1 that I got yestday at 10:15pm) and it looks like they restocked with Legends, not the 3 cases of 2008 W2! I did find someone who stocks Toys, and they said they stocked everything on the pallet. I asked them to check in back, and they claim there are no 2008 W2R1 cases in the back. Very mysterious.

Target's Have force unleashed evolutions!
Columbia target had 4 plus an extra jedi evo pack.
They also had wave1 of 2008. Only obi wan and anakin were on the pegs and i asked if they could check the back.
I asked him to bring the case, but he kept coming out with one figure. I said i need 5 thru 8 and he would take one back with him for the dcpi number, then not bring it back when he brought the next figure. SO after 3 trips to the back, i scored 4 thru 8 of Wave 1.

Then i stopped at gaitersburg target to see if i could get gree, and they only had the aqualish on the pegs but i was already late for work, so i didnt bother to ask. The did have all 4 evo sets there too.

Check your targets folks.

WM#1 this evening. Was eying the 4-5 boxes on the pallet when a nice worker asked if I wanted her to open them all and I could see which were inside!!!! Couldn't belive how nice she was. There was one case of 2008 W1.5 (mix of 2008W1 plus a few late 2007's) one case of W1.75 (more mix of 2008W1 and different 2007's - this 1.75 mix has 1 Concept Rebel Trooper) Left everything except 1 Gree and 1 Kyshyyk Trooper. They also had about 2-3 cases of "2007" Legends, HOWEVER - they contained SA 501'sts. One box had 4 SA 501'sts. Left a bunch, but did grab 4 of these guys.

WM#2 looks like it also stocked 1 case of 2008 W1R1.5 and 1 case of 2008 W1R1.75, as there was a lone Concept Trooper on the pegs, along with a couple Gree's - someone looks like they already got the Kyshyyks - not sure why the took these and left Gree. No evidence of SA 501's on the pegs, here.

Ran into ywlowe ---- they had a case of the FU but were missing one of the troopers - but had 2 of the other trooper. The GI Joe and Hot Wheels sections were over-run but other collectors.

On the way out of the store, I overheard one of the many managers talking to others same 'and the collectors are here too' as I walked by with 3 figs in my hand.

Agree with Jon the section is definitely smaller than the other store --- but the store is HUGE!

Ditto on that vadarthdad.

As an aside, i've been a little surprised by TRU's recent decline in distribution. They seemed to do pretty well with the 2007 figures (much better than WM, and even Target), but haven't been getting much in the way of new stuff.

If anything the TRUs ive been to are overwhelmed with the last few 2007 basic and SL waves. Perhaps the motivation for the "buy 2 get 1 free" sale. Although I've been to 2 TRUs that seemed to only have Padmes, not leaving many options for the other 2 purchases.

FYI - stopped by my local Target and tried 087-06-0884 (like I do anytime I'm in Target...) Last week, and Saturday, it still said "Stockroom = No". Tonight it said "Yes". Scored 1 each of the 6!

Previous posts said projected shelf date was 4/13. The guy went into the back and brough out one of each, and did not bring the box - no clue if it was "Street Dated" 4/13.

03-25-2008, 05:30 PM
You missed something.....but it is technicallly not out yet. Projected shelf date is 4/13-15....

http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data//500/thumbs/order6608.jpg (http://forum.rebelscum.com/imagepopup.php?imagename=http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data//500/order6608.jpg)

Ok....here it goes....I'm not an expert, but let me try...

Target's computers use something called DPCI vs. the UPC code for inventory. It cross-references the UPC code into their Target specific code. Example - at Target, if you look at the product, it has a UPC (barcode), but if you look at your receipt, it has a different 9 digit code. If you look at the same item at Walmart, it has the same UPC code. However, Walmart uses the UPC code - when you look at your Walmart receipt, you see the UPC code.

Now. When you are at Target, most of them have these barcode scanners, fixed to a post, where you can bring an item and check the price, throughout the entire store. They are red, with a small 8" screen. Some Targets have models with push-buttons to type in a code. Older Targets have older models with just the scanner. If you scan an item, it will give you the price, but it will also give you some codes to the location on the floor (what isle it is located in). It also says at the bottom, "Stockroom = xxx", where the "xxx" is either "NO" or "YES". If it is "No", but has an isle location, they have none in back, but show the location on the floor. If it says "YES", but no location on the floor, it means the item is in the stockroom, but not yet put out on the sales floor.

There are separate threads on this site that go into details on the specific codes for each item. For example, the code for TAC is 087-06-1990. The code for the Order 66 2-packs are 087-06-0884. If you walk up to one of these scanners with the push-buttons, you can manually type in 0-8-7-0-6-0-8-8-4-enter and it will tell you the same information as if you scanned in the barcode.

There are various ways to use this code. If you see 6 figures left on the pegs, you can use the codes to check if they have any stock in the back. If you are VERY lucky, and the scanner says "YES" you might find a helpful Target employee who is willing to go into the back, pull a fresh case, and re-stock the figures. This is sometimes doubtful, and you may incur the standard "we are not allowed to pull collecibles or individual items from the back for customers....etc.etc.etc."...there are whole threads devoted to this around this time of the year (when new items are hitting the stockroom but not yet on the floor).

I could go on-and-on on this....there are whole philosophies on RS on the use of the "DPCI Trick" as some call it. Many flames, arguments, etc. have started over this.

IMO Target's use of this is great for the collector - some "experts" take advantage of this as a consumer to regain some leverage - ie. I overbought a couple extra stormtroopers last year. The receipt is expired. They are stocked/inventoried by 087-06-1990. All TAC from this series is the same number, so I can buy a 2008 TAC Wave 2 figure tomorrow, then use this receipt to return the over-bought stormtrooper I got a year ago. There are other variations to this theme.

So I saw that RS front page article about the R2-KT being found at TJ-Maxx and stopped into one on my way home just to see if I could get lucky.

Sure enough - found 1 R2-KT ($5.99)and a VTSC Snowtrooper ($4.50) - there was also a VTSC Bossk ($4.50) and 2 TAC Vaders w/ Album ($6.99). How random!

May be worth stopping into your local TJ-Maxx (and Marshalls) since I think they're both owned by the same company.

I wouldnt get too worked up. I highly doubt his returned overstock will be enough to clog every peg at every retail outlet in the area selling SW merchandise.

But your charity suggestion is well taken. I donated about a dozen extra figures I had picked up for potential trades but was never able to get rid of to Toys for Tots this past Xmas.

I told you guys this would stir some emotions. I'm not saying I'm returning my extra TAC Stormies. I really like them, despite the loose helmets. I said I "can" do this. I'm highlighting possibilities exist at Target for this and other "games". Walmart is "smarter". Receipt is tied directly to specific product. But I like Target much better. :-)

For grins, I just tried this - printed out UPC from 2007 Order 66 2-packs from the photo gallery. Took it to Target. Guess what - it scans as $9.99. I'm probably going to start a thread on this on the main page, vs. DC Area, but what are your thought on this....

Folks may have bought clearance 2007 Order 66 packs for $2.50 each. They may be unopened. You could buy a set of 6 2008 for $60, go out to the car, take 6 2007 sets in, and return for $60, and you really paid $15 for them. You just got a set of 2008 Order 66 for $15. Are you 1) Smart Consumer (maximizing a flaw in Targets System to your advantage); 2) Unethical; or 3) Heading for Jail? My initial thought is this is highly unethical, and may be illegal. The more I thought, it's probably just unethical. However, I know there are folks that will think this is leveraging the system to work for the consumer vs. the retailer and anytime you as the consumer can gain an advantage, use it.

Used in moderation I dont see it being a big issue. If it becomes wide spread enough I could see Target changing their return policy.

I dont have a problem with anyone returning a couple of extra figures, though I'd rather not see 2 year old figures hanging on the pegs just so someone could buy new ones.

But the way I read the post ( and maybe I just read it wrong )when you say overstock, to me that sounds like someone with a collectibles store returning what they could not sell. And as Pellaeon said, if you go to Germantown Target or Gaithersburg Target you will still see the pegs full of 2006 naboo soldiers that were returned last year. And when I say full, each store had at one point over 50 of them and each still have at least couple of dozen left.

So please if anyone is going to return figures please dont dump 50 of the same figure at 1 store

Skv0124
03-26-2008, 07:17 PM
Had I the money for a "store stock" let alone "store overstock" I wouldn't bother hunting figures at stores to avoid shipping fees. My overstock are but a few extras that aren't a part of my collection or fodder, and fairly decent ones at that. I have no more than 10 overall, so don't worry about me spoiling our fun here. If I begin rolling out good repaints then everything will deplete rather quickly.

Well I'm an attorney by trade - and I'm fairly confident its illegal under VA law. My guess is that you'd be facing petit larceny (a/k/a misdemeanor larceny) charges - primarily because you'd be intentionally and willfully defrauding the retailer. Grand larceny if you're defrauding them of $200 or more.

All larceny convictions carry a minumum of 30 days in jail, up to 1 year maximum.

You'd also face up to a $250 fine as well being personally liable for the actual damages.

Probably important you know that.

Thats not to say you wouldn't have possible defenses - but having the intent to defraud negates any possiblity of being able to claim ignorance and prevents you from claiming an inadvertent windfall. Which even then, if Target found out about it, could still sue for recovery.

gizmo91
03-26-2008, 09:29 PM
It always baffled me that Target
1) Uses the same DPCI for whole chunks of figs, and re-uses them for exclusives
2) Accepts returns at receipt price even if the item is on clearance. They have a policy to offer the current clearance price on holiday items --- which stopped the really desperate Halloween, Easter, etc shoppers from coming in the day after buying the candy they already 'used' and returning for full price --- so if they can implement that for holiday items, why not ALL clearance items.

But I don't think its illegal to buy X at the original price, and then see the same item on clearance within the 90 day return window and purchase it at the clearance price and returning the item with the original receipt.

I do find that Target has a 90 day return policy, but will not price match their own price outside of 14 days. Which makes no sense to me since you can rebuy/return.

But I know a few collectors that simply took the receipts from the Ultimate Battlepacks to the stores when the clearance happened and got fully refunded by the sales associates -- which is actually against their policy. Saved them from having to rebuy (if they could even find one) and return.

Target does clearances on everything, you think we are the only ones working the system? They are a large corporation and not stupid enough to lose money without realizing it. Part of their business model IS the clearance section - gets people coming back.

I personally wouldn't return 2007 O66 for 2008 O66 but don't see how it would legally matter - since I bet the 2007 O66 would sell and Target would not be out a dime.

It legally matters because under the scenario Vadarthdad explained, you'd be KNOWINGLY returning DIFFERENT merchandise with the intent of obtaining a refund price attributable to an entirely different item. With the result (and intent) of obtaining a windfall over the price you actually paid for the returned merchandise. Simply put, thats fraud. The issue is the illegal act of the person knowingly perpetrating a fraud.

Analogize it to buying a $1.00 Time magazine from a blind newstand vendor - and then going back and returning it but saying it was a $5.00 Sports Illustrated. You're knowingly defrauding the vendor by exploiting a known deficiency.

The only difference in the current situation is that instead of taking advantage of a blind man, you're taking advantage of a blind computer.

The focus is on the intent of the person returning the merchandise, the resulting bad act, and that person's resulting unjust enrichment - it doesnt matter one bit if the store can recoup its loss later on. The store suffers an injury the moment of the return!!!

Saying Target isnt injured because its going to get its money back by reselling the returned item is like saying murdering a person isnt really an actionable injury because the victim was eventually going to die anyway. Thats an extreme comparasion, but it illustrates the same point. An actionable injury results at the moment it occurs, regardless of whether that injury would be reduced to a nullity later on.

Lets say Target does resell the item - that doesn't change the fact that in eyes of the law you've committed fraud. Because as I just explained, you had the intent, committed the act, and the injury occurred. The ONLY way their reselling the item may help you is by reducing the amount of monetary damages you have to pay. It isnt going to affect the penalty for committing the crime of fraud/larceny at all - which like I said - is jail time.

Im not saying you wouldnt have a defense of contributory negligence on the part of Target for their not changing their codes. But thats a much harder argument to make (or to put in reverse, a much easier mistake for them to prove) than their proving you committed larceny.

Besides, it would be almost impossible for an individual proven to be a knowledgeable and informed collector of SW merchandise to plead a defense of innocent mistake in a case like this.

See, we're members of a science museum here in Winchester, and the membership is reciprocal, so it only cost us the price of the special exhibit (10.50 X 4= 42.00)
I guess if you've already seen the other exhibit, it doesn't pay to spend the money on another one. If you happen to be members of the Maryland Science Center, that membership will work too, as we stopped there on the way home for free also.
