yea, there's too many collectors that work there. they always get first dibs, then the friends of the employees get seconds, then the rest start hitting the floor.

Got out to check some stores today.

Huntington TRU had the vehicle assortment in the new '06 boxes, no gunship.

Commack Target North had skirmish in the senate, no grevious.

Commack Target South had skirmish, no grevious. Also had Vintage figs except Biker Scout.

Bay Shore Target had skirmish, no grevious.

Bay Shore TRU had nada.

Holbrook TRU had Greatest Hits line, got 10 of the 12. Also had some of the Courusant wave, no gunship.

In other words, still haven't found any Gunships and there were no UGHs to be found.

How is everyone doing with the vintage figs? I have only seen luke and han so far. Just wondering which stores I should be hitting - these seem ridiculously hard to find so far.

Speaking strictly from experience in NYC and NJ, KB seems to get them in on a regular basis.

Commack Target South (on the north side of the expressway) had 4 of the 5 vintage figures, everyone except the Biker scout. The figs were in the heat sealed clamshells and they were $11.99 so I passed on the Luke figure that I need. TRU and Walmart have been cheaper. Right now I think it is a crap shoot who will be getting them in stock as there doesnt seem to be any particularly favored retailer at the moment.

Holbrook TRU filled up a BOD (bin of death) with new figures from the Courusant wave. Did not see any Codys or Scorches and of course no UGHs. Did find my Com. Bacara H&V wave figure to complete that 12 card set. Still no sign of the Clone Gunship.

Levittown Target only had Poggles as far as basic figs go. They also had a silver UGH Titanium Slave 1, but it was all bent up.
I picked up my first 3 titaniums ever (Naboo Starship, Sith Infiltrator and AAT) as well as another Skirmish set.

Thanks for the heads up. Managed to finish my first set. There was only one scout and tusken or I would have finished my two sets.

And I was worried about finding these 2 Target exclusives, boy was I wrong.
Yeah, it's nice especially with the skirmish set, someone could potentially build a huge senate with a pod for every species (wish I had the room and $)! Hopefully some of the future exclusives will be abundant as well. I'm looking forward to Mace's purple starfighter.
