Guys, I've got money for a figure....but can't find any
. If any of y'all come across an extra gree, bly, or black clone pilot, pick one up for me if it isn't too much trouble. Only have money for ONE. Also the Yoda with firing cannon. Oh, and the stealth clone. lol

RC, I'll get back to you on that one! BTW, GalacticHunter says that the Tuesday Morning shops have SW stuff including the VOTCs for $6.99. Might wanna check 'em out.

SW Miniatures

Are there any other places you can buy these SW Miniatures, besides Heroes & Fantasies? How much are they? I checked them out for the first time this morning on eBay. Since there are only 60 in the set, I'm thinking about seeing what I can put together. I did see a full set of 60 for $300-something!! Ouch!!

Got Gree and Bly today. Finally. Also got one for a fellow scummer. RC, my friend still wants those Gree and Bly figures. If you have any to spare, tell me and I'll tell him.

Try Dragon's Lair on Fredricksburg road, they usually carry them. Borders might have them, also try Waldenbooks. And btw, there are actually 240 different SW Mini's now
(4 expansions)

Re: SW Miniatures

Jimmie, you can also get them at Gamestop. I saw the Clone Wars ones marked down actually, but the ROTS ones were regular price. Target also carried them for a while, not sure if they still do and I saw the ROTS starter set in the clearance aisles at several Wal-MArts when I was home.

Re: SW Miniatures

Cool, thanks for the info, guys. I checked WM 1604/Nacog and Target Forum yesterday and didn't see them at either store. I looked in the area where the baseball cards and stuff are, in the toy aisle by the SW stuff, and in the games section - didn't see them.

I realized last night that there were 3 other sets besides the ROTS set I saw first. That'll make it quite a bit tougher to get them all. I might buy a few to start out with then decide from there if I want to go for all of them.

Good for you! You should be able to find the other two if you keep looking. Thanx for the tip about Tuesday Morning.

Any sign of the Last 5 figs, like the 501st Clone??

Jesus, some people...

Went to Target at the Forum today. I picked up a Gree for a friend and found a clone trooper cup set with the clone trooper taken out, bunch of [censored] heads out there that would stoop so low as to do such a thing really does make me wonder if they even remotly care that they are going to hell for stealing even the smallest things.

And also, if anyone is interested, Target also had some 26 Yodas there along with one green commander.

Re: Jesus, some people...

I've been findin' green clone commanders everywhere I go, and more than one too. Too bad I don't want more of them. I have one and that's all I want. I do however want 3 shocktroopers but all I need is $11 and I've got those too. Now to find 2 black clone pilots for my gunship..........

I want more Shocktroopers! My black pilots look too nice to be hidden away in my gunship.

Yes I want more shocktroopers too. An army's worth actually. But I must think realistically. There's no way in hell I'm gonna get more than like 3 or 4 of these guys. Same with the Tactical Ops Troopers.

Thanks for the tip, but that's another thing. I can't just go whenever I want. I can really only go on the weekends. And even then that's only to like 2 or 3 stores. That's why it's so difficult to get these things. My only hope is my TRU at blanco. If I find figures there (by calling in) I can reserve them and my mom'll pick 'em up. I don't think you can really reserve stuff at Target....maybe Wal-Mart.

Re: Jesus, some people...

Went to the Target @ 151 last night. Plenty of #41 SA Clones. Everything else pegwarmers. No sign of the Mustafar figs or any other exclusives.

GOOD NEWS: This Target reduced their price on the basic figs to $4.77 each. There was a coupon in Sunday's paper for $5.00 off a $25 purchase. Even more savings!

Maybe if we get really lucky Wal-Mart reduce their figures another dime in response to Target

Where in the paper was that coupon? Hopefully they have all dropped their prices. I know the Target I frequent only has the N. Warriors...and I'm getting really sick of seeing them already.

The coupon was inside a big red flyer in the Sunday paper. The flyer opened up like a book, and inside there was four different coupons, the other three tied directly to specific products or services. The flyer was not an AD, instead just a notice that the new Target @ 151 was open.

The $5.00 off coupon is good until October 23rd.

Welcome to the forum, JediWife!

Re: Yay!

I just recieved the Target Exclusive CLone Trooper (not shadow clone). Should I open it or trade it for something else?

Re: Yay!

It's ultimately up to you, but if it is the only one you have I would recommend keeping it and not opening it. Myself, I have only one and it is still sealed, until I can find a second one(wishful thinking

About 6:30 Target at the Forum had 4 Clone Battle Packs on an end cap right by the regular area for SW figures. Nothing else new.

I know you'll be happy with that Holo Aayla, Kimmie! Going to change your avatar to the Holo version??

Did you open it? Are her knees as easy to bend forward as the regular Aayla?

I actually have been trying to change my avatar to Commander Cody! But it looks weird when I size it down. I haven't opened Aayla yet, but she has those same trick knee joints.

They have some Bly's(yellow ring & white ring variants), Gree's, Wookie Commandos, Neimoidian Commanders, AT-RT Drivers, Yoda(Firing Cannon version), Droidekas, and at least a full case of Darth Vaders
. They also have tons of Darth Taters and about 8 Spudtroopers.
