Re: Area Reports Part Five

I decided to brave the elements after school was canceled today and we lost power around 10:00 this morning. Headed to Target in Coralville where the had an end-cap full of the Clone Wars deco ARC-170 and the Battlepack associated with it along with the AT-RT two-pack. Went to the actual figures and finally picked up two McStarkillers as well as Revan and Malak. Went to Coralville Wal-Mart and found one McSolo and then promptly left to head home after scoring what I needed.

Not too bad of a haul considering the crappy weather. To date, I have seen none of the most current wave of figures.

Re: Area Reports Part Five

JACKPOT BABY! Big find for me today since, to date, I had seen none of the latest waves. SW CR Wal-Mart had loads of figures on an endcap that they must have just made recently? Perhaps not....

Picked up Amidala, Holo Vader, Voolvif Monn, Naboo Soldier (future peg warmer like his brother in the Saga Collection)R2-B1, 7th Legion Clone, Rebel Vanguard, Pax Bonkik and McRebel Trooper.

I am just four figures away from filling the coin collection album. Still need Hawkbat Clone, Training Clone, Jango Fett and the Destroyer Droid as well as four more UGH figures (UGH R2-D2, UGH Galactic Marine, UGH Han Solo and UGH Mace Windu).

Peace out sauerkraut.

Found a UGH Vader for $5 down at the Southridge Mall Target. They also had every other Saga Collection figure clearanced down to $5... just remind the person to scan the sticker NOT the bar-code.

Re: Area Reports Part Five

Read the short story a few years ago and loved it. I'm afraid to see the movie and have it ruin that memory for me.

So... no, I haven't seen it.

Stopped at the Marion WalMart at 5:15, on my way home from the hospital this morning. Nothing new for SW. Not even full pegs.

That's a cool idea - it would be cool to do one during the summer or break times.

Went to Ankeny last night, Wal-Mart and Target were bunk, but Kohl's had five McSnowtroopers and Jay from Jay's.

In the last month I've found 13 McSnowtroopers in two Kohl's.

Hey Qrest_fourstar,

Did you still need a concept Chewbacca? I found some of my figures. Let me know if you need it.

Re: Area Reports Part 5: Are You Ready for Life Da

Coralville Wal-Mart and Target both had the Sith and Clonetrooper Evolution packs. I saw some of the new Lego sets for the Force Unleashed as well.

I am just three figures away from filling the coin collection album. Still need Training Clone, Jango Fett and the Destroyer Droid as well as four more UGH figures (UGH R2-D2, UGH Galactic Marine, UGH Han Solo and UGH Mace Windu).

Sooo, recommendations on games? Picked it up at WM this evening. The last of the first 4 post X-mas Wiis my local WM got in.
Got the Extra remote w/Wii Play, Link's Cross Bow Training, and the Carnie Game. Are there any games with guns/swords/violence I should know about?

Re: Area Reports Part 5: Are You Ready for Life Da

Sweet haul, Jodo.

The North side Target in CR las night looked like it was in the middle of its reset. Not a lot of figs, mostly 4-LOM and General McQuarries. However, they did have the Mighty Muggs (including a Fett), the Clone and Sith Evolution packs, the Vader and Clone dress up sets, and something I had no idea was coming out... key chain two packs (Fett and Vader set, crappy paint app).

Totally unrelated, does anbody here have the Flogging Molly, Whisky on a Sunday, CD / DVD set? I have a question about it.

Nope. Left it for somebody else. I'll keep an eye out for one if you can't find it in W'loo.

I also left both of the Fett/Vader keychain sets that were on the pegs.

Thanx for keeping an eye out for this on, I think I will probably be at Target today, so let me know if you find it, and I will let you know about Waterloo.

Target in Dubuque had the Hoth and Endor At-St sets for $24.50. Picked one up for my son. They had about 8 or so on Friday. Not sure if they made it through the weekend, I'm tempted to go back for a few more for me! Just thought I'd pass that on.

Re: Area Reports Part 5: Are You Ready for Life Da

Saw the Sith and Trooper evolutions at Ankeny Target today. I dig the packaging. They also had the keychains and the bobblehead things. I wish they'd put out some new figures instead of that crap. I'm still way behind. I've only ever found remnants of the last three waves.

I have not seen the Anakin Evo set yet, and apparantly not alot have - I don't want it picked up, but I will buy it when I find it. I'd rather buy it on my own time.

Re: Area Reports Part 5: Are You Ready for Life Da

The Dubuque Target majorly picked over, not much left from when I was there Friday. Have to wait until they reset I guess. Walmart was not much better.
