New Figure Mojo in Des Moines.....

Thursday Geek Day thanks to Turkey Day, so I had to run to Des Moines between my work shifts today. Gald I did....

I found Wave Eight at the Urbandale TRU around noon. Not the whole wave, but enough to keep me happy. McRebel Trooper was long-o gone-o, but I did get the Training Fatigues Clone Trooper, Fireplace Padme, Poncho Jango, Voolvif Monn, and the Bubble Destroyer Droid plus all those minus the Fatigues Clone for my buddy Jeff in Sioux City.

I also got the Comic Packs with the Stormtroopers (Tarkin / Stormie, Chewie / Han Stormie, R2 / Luke Stormie) without the blue paint on them at the Altoona Walmart.

Crappy distribution this year Hasbro.

Re: Area Reports Part Five

Found a single McSnowie at the Marion WalMart last night. I know that I've been really outspoken on my cutting back on figs and really limiting myself to Fett only purchases, but.... DANG!!! This is a nice looking figure.

Also, to whoever, if you're lurking around here, stashed the McSnowjob on top of the shelves. Behind the faced BattlePacks. On top of some more BattlePacks... thanks.

Now, if WalMart would just get the Fett comic packs.

Re: Area Reports Part Five

Does anyone need or want a UGH Airborne Trooper? Ideally I would trade for a UGH R2, but I will sell it for what it cost me at WalMart last night.

Also, wow, WalMart had tons of the McQuarrie Vaders and Solos last night. Extra figs, including the McQuarries, were stacked up below the pegs. Tons of product, but alas, no Fett comic packs.

Lemme know if anyone wants the UGH.

Swung by the Wal-mart on E14th today. Finally a streak of luck. They had a whole pallet of Wii's.

Here is what I don't get. I would say 80% of the people in line waiting to purchase one were Wal-Mart employees.

Re: Area Reports Part Five

Thought I saw you at WM Kev. Wasn't sure withought the silver shades! Keep an eye out at the southside store. They have some figures but they are lost in the back room!(when you have 25-35 pallets of toys filling up the place, things don't always get worked) I also saw that they are getting trays of galactic hereos soon.

Wal-mart associates have to wait to buy Wii's just like everyone else. They limit them and they don't know when or if they are getting them till around 11 am. So glad I'm not a big game player anymore(just bought me a PS2 last year-and it was used!)

We just missed each other this morning. I was there at 7:30

I saw those figures along with Anakin Spirit. Left them all there. That Anakin Spirit looks horrible in my opinion. Almost looks constipated.

Thanks for leaving them
You shoulda stopped by Target, I was waiting outside with the rest of the folks. Of course that wasn't until a little before 8 and they didn't have anything good anyway. Also no Wiis which dissapointed everyone else who was there. I did run into someones Dad at Wal-Mart looking for UGH figures. Said his sons were both 40+. Anybody here?

Really, I was at Ankeny Target yesterday and they had part of wave 7.5 . They did not have the Clones or the Holo Vader, so I got the rest and left the red naBOO (notice the boo) figure and the Greedo figure.

Re: Area Reports Part Five

Swung by the Target in Merle Hay and picked up a couple 7th Legion Clone Troopers and Holo Darth Vader. They also had a couple ARC-170 battle packs.

I would really like to find a couple of the Star Wars Clone Trooper: Hawkbat Battalion Figure or Dark Trooper if anyone runs into them and doesn't want them I would certainly re-imburse you for them.

Re: Area Reports Part Five

Not really a store report but my D-Con/TDH Boba Fett shirt just arrived. So cool.

For anybody who cares, Monkey in a Dryer is clearing out their stock of Star Wars shirts and TDH shirts and posters.

lol I saw those leftovers that day. The wierd thing is I'd been there earlier and all they had was the soldier guy with the big gun so they must just be stocking at odd times.

Re: Area Reports Part Five

Cedar Rapids - TRU has wave 7.5 on the pegs as of lunch time. I picked up the Holographic Vader that I needed. SW Wal-Mart put out more legends this morning. They had a pallet out on the floor with what looked like about 10 - 15 cases of Star Wars figures on it & I looked to see what assortments where on it. They had a few boxes of wave 7.5, wave 5's , waves 4, & etc. I couldn't tell if any Saga Legends where there but they are about all they have been putting out lately. So it might be a while before we see any of wave 8 there.

Re: Area Reports Part Five

Made the pilgrimage to the frozen tundra this weekend to watch the Pack destroy the Raiders and stopped at a few stores along the way. In Marion, Iowa there were TONS of action figures. I am not sure if I ever seen so many, nothing real special but lots of them. However, in Green Bay Shopko I found a pre-cyborg Grievous and Darth Malek. Target had the AT-RT and ARC 170 exclusives but I passed on them. However, they had to UGH Airborne troopers, if anyone needs one let me know!

I hope you don't mean Marion, Iowa, Jodo. 'Cus if you do that would mean I'd have to be peeved you didn't let me know you were coming to town.

And yes, the last few times I've been in the Marion WM they have TONS of stuff and all recent waves.

Re: Area Reports Part Five

Probably not. For starters I'm not a Hyperspace member. Secondly, I'm still not fond of the size of the keys. I'd prefer they be a little bit bigger for the money.

I keep meaning to do my own version of the Fett character key. I did an R2 key earlier this year. If I ever get time to do a Fett version I'll let ya know.

Also, forgot to mention it earlier, I picked up a first edition of the Star Wars novelization from 1976 this weekend. It's not mint but it's also not trashed.
