Has anyone come across any AT-ST on clearance at Wal-mart?
Yes, Orange Wal-Mart has them on clearance for a steal of $40!!!

Westminster WM had them for $30, but they sold quick. Same with the Sandie and Dewback for $10.

Hooray, found a straggler TIE for $10 at Cypress Target. Now I have two to flank Vader! And then one extra from TAC, because it looks super cool all white and everything, like vintage.

you could do that. You'll notice that the paint job is dull flat black --not shiny & nice like Takara's and that the alternate face is the same as MP SS -the smirk. Takara's warp has the teeth gnashing. Why H didn't put that on the us version we'll never know

Hey guys,

saw 5 brand new spanking EE Joker squad at the Orange Mall Ross. I was tempted to buy 2 more, but decided that I didn't like the look of the stormies. It's a little off from the VOTC ones.

Months ago--I bought 2 from EE and 1 more from Ross when I found them.

$2.50 a stormie--not a bad deal.

Saw the new battle packs (birth of Vader, holocron heist, the tatooine battle thing) at Target Westminster today. Passed, since it's all stuff they've done before in one way or another.

Hey Scummers,
I am coming down to visit CA mostly the westside/SM/Venice etc. Are there any great collector Stores(other than Puzzle Zoo on 3rd Street SM) that has vintage stuff/MR/Sideshow that I should visit? How about Frank and Sons? Does the Shrine still have a good turn out? Let me know guys.
Thanks in advance for your help. Oh...and thanks to Bikerscout for your help! He was helping me on the LA forum. Not to many posters on there.

Travel zoo is a ripoff.

Frank and Sons is the place to go. Yeah they are scalpers, but the thing is the prices are okay because they are all competing against each other. It doesn't have too much vintage, but most SS and GG are there. Oh course, a lot of us around southern california might have stuff to sell you as well.

Good luck.

I'm not sure if there are still a lot of collectible stores in Anaheim. One was called Phat Collectibles, can't remember the other stores. Near Beach & Ball, I believe.

Hey guys, its Onsokumaru. I lost my computer in a burnout (the tower caught fire) and lost my login info for my old account.

So far, the new Vintage Line has been SO easy for me to collect! I've picked up Dengar, two AT-AT Commanders, a Snowspeeder, 3PO, Luke, Han, and Leia. Most of my scores were always @ Target in Westminster Mall.

Just wanted y'all to know I'm not dead.
I actually work for Disney now too, not RadioShack, so no more hunting in the Orange Mall Wal-Mart.

Grats on the new job, man. Yeah, these new waves have been pretty easy to find. Heck, I managed to score the new Snowspeeder at the TRU in Anaheim Hills a couple weeks before they were supposed to be released.

According to Hasbro's own timeline, Wave 2 of TVC should be out today. They'll probably not show up at Targets and such yet, but have you guys seen any at Frank and Son's? I might make a round there this Wednesday and will let you guys know.

He showed me the figs on card, and said he got them at Wal-Mart in Westminster, but there was no sign of them when I went there. So he's either mistaken or lying.

Glendale eh? Yeah it seems the best places to look early are outside of Orange (because it seems like the scalpers like buying them in bulk, if you know what I mean, around here). We must band together against the scalpers. HAHA

Yeah you should ask him for the receit.

The great thing so far however is how nice and "relaxing" it was collecting wave 1 . Hopefully wave 2 will be a similar experience. But there is a lot more army builders to be had in wave 2, so I guess grab what you can of Clone Troopers, Sand Troopers, and Magna Guards.
