Re: Area Reports Part 7: 2009

OK, I finally got back on the forums....looks like I have missed a lot. I had a huge computer issue, couldn't connect with the main e mail address that my password was going to, yada, yada, yada. I am back again and ready to catch up on all the new finds, not that there really have been any lately, in Iowa.

Re: Area Reports Part 7: 2009

CR SW side Target had the Star Trek and Terminator figures out. Star Trek figures look kind of cool and for your customizers out there it looks like there are some possibilities. The Terminator figures look cool if you check out the T-700's and others whereas the human or human-like ones look.....lame.

I found the Yavin and Jabba battle packs today at West DSM Super Target as well as a few other Targets in the area. No signs of the ESB wave of figures.

I also found the Scramble on Yavin and Jabba Battlepacks. I found them at the Valley West Target.

Here are some pics.

Re: Area Reports Part 7: 2009

Just dropping by to add my voice to the chorus of finding the new Battlepacks today. Nabbed two each of the Yavin and Jabba BPs around the DM area today. One set is headed west to my Buddy Jeff.

I also found two Potato Head Clone Tubers at the University K-Mart.

Both DM area TRUs have their **coughcough**ripoff**coughcough** exclusive Clone Wars Hailfire Droid w/ Grevious and V-Wing w/ pilot repaints. $25 ship and $8 brought to you by TRU for $40. And yes, I did get one of each. The Hailfire Droid has that blue and tan color scheme from last years AAT Tank and the V-Wing has a "factory fresh" look to it instead of the "used" look the last release had.

No sign of Wave Six of Legacy as far as I could tell.

I also got the latest issues of KotOR and Dark Times at Mayhem today.

The Super Target in Urbandale and Target at Merle Hay Mall have the Battle of the Sarlacc Pit battlepack marked down to $13.74. That's 75% off original price. I of course had to get one. Each store had at least 5-6 left.

New Ship Mojo in Des Moines....

Sorry this is a little late, but yesterday on Geek Day, I picked up two each of the Super vulture Droid and the Magnaguard Starfighter at a couple of different Targets yesterday on Geek Day. I also saw the Target Exclusive Rancor with Luke at the Southside, Ankeny, Merle Hay Mall, and Urbandale Targets. My buddy Jeff already set me up with one in May so if I remember right, those four siteas had two each.

And I've given up trying to find the ESB wave locally. I caved and ordered a case from EE. With the case price coming to $8 a figure I just couldn't pass it up. If I do see them out and about, I'll pass that on when (if) I see them.

Re: Area Reports Part 7: 2009

Is finding the ESB wave that hard to find? I saw a dealer at wonderfest that had them but I didnt want to pay $15 each. I'll keep looking,

On another note, I REALLY want the Lumiya/Luke Comic pack. If someone comes accross them,please give a shout. I need 3, and I really dont buy dupes anymore.

Oh, and when it come out, the rebel pilot evolution with Shira Brie, but I dont think it's due for some time.

Re: Area Reports Part 7: 2009

Another week, no ESB wave sightings still.

However, the Marshalltown Walmart got in a new case of Saga Legends on the new cards. The redesign does really jump out at you on pegs the first time you see them. But when you realize that it is just the same old same old it stings a little bit.

Re: Area Reports Part 7: 2009

Jordan Creek Wal Mart had the Saga Legends on the new cards. They had at least one of each of them (#1-14). It was kind of cool to see them after only seeing Yarna and Breha for the longest time. It was also annoying in the fact they never got the ESB wave or the AOTC wave on the other cards.

Question for the Des Moines folks...

Is Jays still worth the trip?

I'll be in DM this weekend and was wondering if I should make the effort to head there.

Does anyone have any good advice about trading SW LEGO's or where to buy them? My son is really interested in them now and I think it's great he wants to build things. Any points would be great! Thanks

In the stores: Toys R Us seems to be the only retailer that I've seen carrying them all. Target's not bad.

Online: lego has a store I think. Check the Lego section for tips on the online stuff.

Re: Area Reports Part 7: 2009

Target in Urbandale had the Clone Wars vehicles in the new packages. The new ones were Anakin's starfighter and the republic tank. The repackaged ones were the Vulture Droid, Magnaguard starfighter, V-19 Torrent, and Obi-Wan's starfighter. Also, I don't know if it as all Target stores but the Jordan Creek Target dropped the starfighter line to $18.99

New Vehicle Mojo in Des Moines....

Picked up the Republic Fighter Tank and Anakin's (Clone Wars style) Jedi Starfighter at the Urbandale Target. Snagged the last one of each thanks to GreenThree's post.

I also picked up the latest issue of Star Wars: Legacy at Mayhem comics and Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi - Omen at Barnes and Noble. Border's didn't have any copies that I could find. And this book is real... short. It clocks in under 250 pages. I'm so far behind in my reading anyway so I shouldn't complain. I'm still reading SW: LofJ -Revelation. But for a $27 hardcover I just think there should be a little more "meat" to it.

Saw these in Coralville yesterday. Still no new figures. Pegs are clogged with Breha Organa and Clone Wars figures.

New Deluxe figure Mojo in Des Moines....

The Urbandale TRU had the new Deluxe Figure and Vechile packs out and on the shelf. They only had two - a blue animated style Clone Trooper with a BARC Speeder Bike and Battle Droid with Armored Scout Tank - and the were $17.99 each. Left them there as I ordered a case of Wave One of this line when I ordered my ESB wave from EE.

And no sighting of the ESB (or AotC) still.

And I picked up the first issue of Star Wars: Invasion from Mayhem. Just flipping thru it, the art is really really good. I think this about time that Dark Horse has done something in the NJO era and I hope it reads as good as it looks.

Re: Area Reports Part 7: 2009

Jordan Creek Wal Mart got the ESB wave in but by the time I got three they just had one Leia and one Capt. Needa left. Gordmans on 22nd street also must of got that wave but they just had the carry forward Jawa and treadwell with the U-3P0 arm (they had 2).

Wow.

I finally saw something NEW at retail from the Legacy line. A lone Breu and Clone Pilot (repack) from Wave Seven were hanging from the pegs at the Ames Target. Since I nabbed mine online, they are still swinging there.

Re: Area Reports Part 7: 2009

New Figure (yep, FIGURE!) Mojo in Des Moines....

I found and picked up the new Heavy Assault Super Battle Droid and the new Yoda from the Clone Wars line at the Merle Hay Target. The only other Clone War figure on the new card they had there was the Grevious repack. I stopped at the other Targets (except the Southridge one) and they pretty much had the same old same old.

The Jordan Creek Wally did have the last new Titanium I needed - the Hyena Bomber. I did see a Republic Fighter Tank (the Tank for the 3 3/4 inch line) at the Jordan Creek Wally if anyone is still looking.

I also picked up the latest issues of The Clone Wars and KotOR at Mayhem Comics.
