Setauket Walmart had Wave 1 tonight. Left most since I got mine from HTS, did pick up a bunch of the recards without the coin. FINALLY scored the blizzard force speeder bike and AAT Titaniums also. Been missing them since late last year and was worried I'd never see them.

Medford Target had the remains of Wave 1.

Holbrook TRU had nothing much except a UGH Galactic Marine. They also have a buy 2 get 1 free on any figures $10.99 and under.

It seems like the latest wave of Joes is hitting BIG! They had more at the Walmarts and Target in Levittown. No Star Wars worth talking about

Hey fellas. I stopped in Levitown Target yesterday. I picked up the new Joes, and some of SW Wave One. I am caught up, but still need a Jump Trooper, Evo Trooper, Maris Brood from Wave Two. Later.

Anyway, has anybody seen the Sith Legacy Evo set in Suffolk yet?
I picked up a set a few weeks ago in the Middle Island Walmart so they are around.

I was at the VS Target around 7 PM...were you the collector that grabbed an R2-B1 off the pegs to scan?


Up early this morning, I went back, and it seemed like there was NO ONE working in the toy section. Picked up the phone for help and a worker from a different area was kind enough to pull a couple already-opened Wave 1 revision cases and left them on the floor.

I pulled a Gree, Kashyyk, and Tri-droid for myself, and filled the pegs with the rest of the figures from one case, while the other remained on the floor.

Also of note, someone stole a 25th Crimson Guard, ripped straight off it's packaging, and the backing card was placed...back on the pegs?

Ha, yeah that was me.
I took that fig for the stock guy to scan (easier than giving the dpci)
I was kinda hurrying since my wife was shopping with me and I knew she'd be ready to go any min.!

Funny, the case they brought out for me was opened as well...

That Target & Farmingdale WM seem to have alot of bizarre packages ripped open or repacked with old figs and whatnot, some people have weird ways to get their jollies.

Nice to have kinda almost met you!

Yeah that's not creepy. Funny how we all seem to shy away from direct interaction with fellow collectors. Almost as if a force field deters us from speaking to a fellow enthusiast. I know for me it's because I look like a barbarian.

Haha, nice to have almost met you too.

It did seem like you were in a rush. (You grabbed the figure so quickly that I was wondering if it was a difficult get.)

Also, if I wasn't on the phone, I would've said that we just missed out on Wave 1. Glad you were able to score the wave though, and next time I'll be sure to say hello.

Or until July 26th... lucky for you, there isn't going to be anything new to get until then. Feel better!

Holbrook TRU had a bunch of Legends and also the evolution sets, including the Sith Legacy set if anyone was looking.

Middle Island Walmart had a large amount of legends, nothing else worthwhile.

Last night Lake Grove TRU had a large amount of Legends, pegs were overflowing.

I haven't seen any of the new Legends, it just seems to be a very large amount of the 2007 figures.

A little off topic but does anyone local have a Driods C-3PO, R2-D2 or Kea Moll they are willing to sell?

Thanks

I saw a droids c3po at a garage sale a year ago and passed on it. I should have grabbed it. I regretted it ever since. they only wanted a quarter for it, too.

VS Target...not much...a couple Obi-wans, a poncho Jango, yellow clone, a couple Padmes.

VS TRU...first time seeing the new Joe wave: one Torpedo, three Rock 'n Rolls...also several Snow Jobs, Air Troopers. They should all be there in the morning. Same old SW figures, except a Darktrooper sans Rex sticker.

I didn't bother going to wally world.

new "focus"?
LOL. No, two of my buddies (1 drives a red Mercedes, the other has a torn ACL) told me they consider them part of the vintage line. That being said these are the last few I need to complete the sets.

Centereach WM had Gree and a couple Kashyyyk troopers today, as well as other remnants of Wave 1. I was able to snag the Sith Legacy set as well. Just need the TFU wave and I'll be caught up for a long while, it seems!
