Re: Wave 4

If anyone needs a regular MCChewie let me know. I stashed 2 at Target in VS. Got an Umpass in WM VS. Nothing else around.

Re: Wave 4

I am about at the end of the rope now... about to bite the bullet and start ordering this stuff completely online.

Commack Wally and the 2 Targets - nothing. Both Targets brought out a case for me but it was the wave 3 revision (even thought the case looked new - no purple on it). But the sales guys made me feel like an idiot for asking for them. They had to call the store manager to get the "OK" to bring out another case. Add to that - the rest of these stores are stocked regularly yet the toy dept has tons of cases of stuff just sitting in the back waiting... Waiting for what? WTF???

4 Wal-Marts, 3 Targets, 2 TRUs, 3 KBs & 1 K-Mart all within 10 minutes drive. I'm there when the store opens, I'm there when it closes, I know people in a few of them - I still find nothing. All of these stores still have Saga '06 peg warmers - at least a dozen or more. No Transformers Deluxe at all anywhere (except Kohls for $12.99). Cars the Movie - even worse since the recall (it's Sarge, not the entire line idiot). At least KB has them again (my son is into them).

I love the hunt, but to find nothing for weeks on end... c'mon! Just venting, sorry. But I think it's time to spend my money with a business that actaully wants my business.

Re: Wave 4

CZ-4 has been taken. No luck anywhere this morning. Whoever finds McVader, please take all of them for the rest of us. Thanks.

Re: Wave 4

Finally!
Found wave 4 + Saga Legends sandtrooper + Fett @ TRU Valley Stream this afternoon. No McVader or CZ4. Lukes, Umpass, Fett and cantina aliens were still there + Y-Wings.
They have a large section at the front of the store now in addition to the regular aisle.
The endcap at the end of the regular aisle had a new Fall planogram posted listing Master Replicas Blasters/Helmets/Sabers (probably scaled).

Nothing @ VS WM or Target.

TRU Mass had Saga Legends Sandtroopers + Battle Droids.

Re: Wave 4

hey, does everyone know the little short woman that greets everyone at the door in massapequa wally?

last week, some guy was walking out the exit and the alarm went off. the guy has a baby seat box. so, she went to go lift it and couldnt. she then opened it up and it was filled with dvds. the guy took off like a bat outta hell. turned out there were over $32,000 worth of dvds in the box! I think walmart needs to step up thier security!

Re: Wave 4

that's a crazy story but not that logical when you think about it

say the guy was stealing the $10-15 DVD's, how does 3,200 + DVDS fit into a baby seat box?? and where does one find the time to place 3,200 DVDS in the said empty box without anyone noticing and is there even 3,200 DVD's available in the store?

clearly internal theft had something to do with this

Re: Wave 4

the box was a "2 seater" so Im assuming it was a stroller and not a carseat. they said they took all the new releases and boxed sets. the guy went through the scanner and it beeped as he was on the phone. he still kept talking when she had told him she would have toopen his box. he then went on to tell ther person on the phone "0h. she is checking my box" then continued out the door.

what also ticker her off was that she was unable to life the box because of its weight. But honestly, how much can she lift? 30 pounds?

Re: Wave 4

Wave 4 hit TRU Holbrook, if ever so gently. I got the 4 new figs other than CZ, McVader and any UGHs. Took a chance and went to TRU Bay Shore. No wave 4 but I did get red Battle Droids from SL. And they did have 4 Y-Wings if anyone is looking. No signs of the TIE Interceptor yet.

Also Bay Shore Target only had some SL.

I have only seen the beige/yellow battle droids in SL, are there more variants as well as red? Anyone finding any others?
