Re: Central N.J.

Local TRU - Wave 5 has been here, all that was left Thursday evening were 2 Yodas and Roron Corobbs. Also saw a SL Shock Trooper and there are still quite a few Captain (red) AOTC Clones.

Still a a good number of MR Force FX lightsabers here. They're on sale for $99.99 till Saturday.

They also have MR Mini Scaled Stormtrooper Blasters here, very cool at $39.99.

Local TRU, new SW Transformers, only saw the Turbo Tank/Cody, which I took. But they are hitting around here now, be on the lookout.

Re: Central N.J.

I came across the the TAC Darth Vader Voice Changer at TRU. This is it's third release(the first was for the OTC line, the second was for the ROTS line). The packaging is almost as nice as the OTC version but it's still not worth spending another $29.99 for the same thing. There was also plenty of the older Saga Legends figures. There are hardly any new figures to be found.

I know I asked this question before but I still need some help. Can any of you tell me which retail store (Target, TRU, Wal-Mart, KB, etc) you've had the most luck finding wave 4.5? The wave 4.5 revision case contains the UGH McQuarrie Boba Fett, UGH Darth Vader, and the UGH Biggs Darklighter. Those are the only ones I need to complete the set. Gas prices are rising again (just in time for the holiday rush) so I want to be able to maximize my efforts and minimize my costs. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Central N.J.

I was lucky at several Targets for the UGH Vader/Biggs/Fett wave and KB. Not seen these at either TRU or WalMart.

Thanks for the info SW_collector. I really appreciate the help. Have the Target/KB stores been getting them repeatedly or have you noticed that it's been a one and done kind of thing? This wave has been elusive for me and I really want to complete my UGH set.

Re: Central N.J.

Well some good news for fellow central N.J. collectors.....finally saw remenants of wave 7 at Woordbridge WalMart this afternoon....must have missed the Concept Holo by a hair. But picked up A-wing and Ewoks. They had another set on the pegs as well as R2 with net so maybe, just maybe, we will see wave 7/8 before the holidays.

Re: Central N.J.

Walmart had a lot of Wave 7's this morning. They had some on the pegs and they used the trays that had the Galactic Heroes in them to put out more. Also Target had about 15 of the AT-RT Assault Squad battle packs which are on sale for $24.99.

I saw UGH Biggs, Vaders and Fetts at Target around Thanksgiving. I have only seen one or two Vaders in Target since then. Never saw any of them in TRU, Walmart or KB.

Thank you for the help SW_collector. I actually need all three: UGH McQuarrie Boba Fett, UGH Darth Vader, and the UGH Biggs Darklighter. For some strange reason, I keep coming across the same wave 4.25 revision case at TRU and KB. That revision case has the UGH Stormtrooper, UGH Ceremonial Luke Skywalker, and the UGH Han Solo. I actually came across a KB store that had about 3-4 cases of the wave 4.25 assortment. It's to the point where I'm getting sick of that 4.25 revision case. I haven't had much luck finding any UGH figures at Target or Wal-Mart. I don't know if I'm missing something with finding the wave 4.5 case. Is there a secret password that I'm forgetting to say at these stores? Is it "Blabbering Blatherscythe?" Just please let me know.

Re: Central N.J.

Went to 2 Walmarts this morning. Both of them had about 10 (5 of each) of the Jabba's band and dancers cinema scenes. I left them all since there is nothing new in them.

Re: Central N.J.

Suprise, Surprise! TRU in Woodbridge actually had put out 2 cases of Wave 8!! Not heard of any finds but I was able to snag a McRebel trooper and left all the others behind. Looks like 2 cases (minus the Mc Rebel) on the pegs as of 8:30 this morning.

Wave 8 ?

Hit a couple TRU on the way home tonight, no Wave 8 sightings. Did see a lot of Wave 5 including the Darths and Starkiller.

Re: Wave 8 ?

I also came across wave 8 but I found the figures at Target. I was surprised to see wave 8 before I found wave 6, wave 7, and wave 7.5 at Target (not to mention never finding wave 4.5 on the pegs). Something is definitely up with Hasbro's distribution this year.

I picked up the McQuarrie Rebel Trooper, Voolvif Monn, Jango Fett, Clone Trooper w/Battle Fatigues, and 2 Destroyer Droids. I passed on the Padme Amidala, I foresee a potential pegwarmer. The real winner of wave 8 is the super articulated Jango Fett. The cloth poncho is a great touch. Overall, it's a pretty good wave.

Re: Wave 8 ?

Still not finding Wave 8 at local TRU, they had 3 cases of Wave 4 out with UGHs McTrooper, Han and Luke.

They did have new stock, the Mighty Muggs and new Lego Sets: Rogue Shadow, Anakin Clone Wars Starfigther, AT-AP and a Battle Droid set.

Re: Wave 8 ?

I saw several UGH figures in one Target this morning. There was a McFett, Darth Vader, Galactic Marine, Biggs and Ceremonial Luke. They were all hanging on the pegs when I left at 10am today.

Re: Wave 8 ?

Finally saw a lot of Wave 8 this AM at local TRU, multiples of all figures except, you guessed it - McRebelTrooper. There was not a 1 of those. Bah, Humbug! indeed. Luckily a Rockland County friend hooked me up with the McRebelTrooper.

I have not seen the Starfighter w/Hyperspace Ring.

Re: Wave 8 ?

I came across wave 8 again but it was at KB and they had put out a couple cases. Since the figures were $7.99 each, I only picked up the McQuarrie Rebel Trooper

I have extras of the McQuarrie figures. So if anyone has the UGH McQuarrie Boba Fett, UGH Darth Vader, and the UGH Biggs Darklighter(wave 4.5), I'd be willing to trade. If money is tight because of the holidays (which is totally understandable), you could just stash the figures and PM me the store and location and I'll just sell the figures at cost to you. Just let me know. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Wave 8 ?

Forgot to post this yesterday but Target had some keychain two packs filling up the action figure pegs yesterday. They also had Mighty Mugs and Bobble heads but not much else.

There were also a lot of the 2008 SW legos and new Indiana Jones Legos.

Re: Area Reports

I came across the newly re-packaged Sith and Clone Trooper Evolutions sets at Target. The new packaging is nice but I don't think it's worth buying again. Target also had the new Might Muggs figures but I passed on those.

Has anyone come across the TRU exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi Starfighter with Hyperspace Ring in NJ yet?

East Brunswick TRU had them yesterday. I don't see them flying off shelves. Has anyone anywhere seen wave 7.5 in any abundance yet?

TRU in Jersey City had a bunch on Friday night. At least 6 - 8 pieces were on the shelf.

Re: Area Reports

Thanks to both MATTGUNNS and jokabofe for the info. Now, I know they're in NJ. Since gas prices are back to being on the high side again, I'll wait for them to hit the TRU stores that are closer to me.

Re: Area Reports

Does anyone know the case pack ratio of the WalMart comic packs? I found 7 of the Boba Fett 2 pack at Toms River WalMart, but none of the Bail/Obi or clones. I would have expected the Fett packs to go quicker than the others.

Stopped in at few KB and TRU last night, and the same as I saw last weekend at Target and Wal-Mart, only peg warmers of Waves 4, 6 and 8. Where is the "odd" Waves love NJ?
