Looks like we got a new thread.


I found remnants of the HOF wave (Chewie, R2, Han, Leia, Luke, Obi) at the Target at the Forum yesterday.

Not much I am afraid. I did see the Carkoon Skirmish 4-pack at a couple of TRUs yesterday and the Unleashed Luke and Sidious re-packs are everywhere. Other than that, a whole lot of HOF stuff.

Re: OTC figures have hit big!!!

Man, what happened to all the old posters in the SA area, Billy Ray? Did you guys migrate to your own fan site or what?


Just curious, i was just looking around to see what others have been finding lately...

Hello all, I had a hard time finding this thread as I have not been here for awhile. Anyway, I swore off buying any more figs but I just have to a Spirit of Obi Wan. Any Wal-Mart in particular Billy Ray? If I happen across any OTC stuff I will surely post it. GS Out

Yeah SS, we started up our own Yahoo group to post up to the minute finds in. There were just too many times where someone would post a find and then when someone followed up on it the new stuff was all gone! This held true even for stuff someone stashed. That is why most of the posts here are a couple days late or a little vague on details. There is a link on our website to join if you are interested. I am sure the gang wouldn't have any problem with Austinites joining

GS, long time no see! I spotted a few Ghost Obis at the Super Wal-Mart on Bandera Rd and also one today at the Wal-Mart at 151 and 410, but it was beat to crap! The card was so crushed that his head was almost off!

Yeah, there is one guy here in town who is a major hot wheels and Star Wars scalper, has a little shop in a local flea market. I am sure there are probably others as well, but we ALL know this guy and see him all of the time.

ACSWC 1 Year Anniversary!

On September 15th, the Alamo City Star Wars Collectors will be celebrating their one year anniversary! Our 13th monthly meeting will be held at our normal venue, Alien Worlds (3333, Wurzbach Rd. across from Ingram Park Mall, in the shopping center with American Craft Mall).
It has been a fun filled year for our steadily growing group. We have grown in number from a handful of Rebelscum forumites to a group of twenty one local area collectors. ACSWC is a club for Star Wars collectors in San Antonio and the surrounding area, but some of our members are from as far away as Cuba and Germany. New members are always welcome!
We formed ACSWC to be able to help collectors in the area in the never ending pursuit of Star Wars collectibles from vintage to modern, toys to toilet paper. Our members range from vintage toy collectors to modern, carded, loose, customizers...whatever your area of interest, one or more of our members is probably a self proclaimed expert. We hold monthly meetings at Alien Worlds and we also have our own, private, Yahoo group for sharing our recent finds, news, reviews, local events, etc.
To learn more about ACSWC, please follow the link in my signature.

New Galactic Heroes

Not a whole lot new out there in SA lately. The ROTJ wave of VOTC are still tuening up sporadically at Targets around town. I did spot them at TRU at Ingram the other day. Also found the latest wave of Galactic Heroes (bounty hunters) there as well...minus the Boba/Dengar set
These were also reported to be found at Target as well. OTC Boba Fett Slave I has popped up at Targets here and there as well.
