The scalper dude at Target Plymouth must have scarfed up all of the Revans and Malaks before heading over to the Marvel Superheroes and Hot Wheels. All they have are Biggs and Troopers.
I did secure a few Concept Bobas (silver and gold coin), Animated Bobas, Concept Hero Starkiller and Concept Vader at Montgomeryville TRU, along with an ARC-170 battle pack at Target Montgomeryville.
Nothing of interest at Target CityAve, unless you're looking for the the Hoth and Endor exclusive sets.

Kohl's had some hard-to-find figs if anyone is still looking for the Darths and General McQuarrie, among others.
Specifically, Center Square (202&73), Andorra and Royersford.

Target Plymouth Meeting was doing a reset of the toy department this morning and it looks like they put a bunch of pegwarmers back in overpack/storage. There were only Saga Legends figures on the pegs, and lots of empty pegs for standard figs.

Wal-Mart East Norriton had some Muggs (Han and Chewie) and Force Unleashed lightsabers today. I scooped up the Trooper Evolutions set they had there.

A toystore near you.
Walmart in the ghetto (down by the old Sears on the Boulevard) had the new comic packs, Luke Skywalker / Lt. Shan, Mouse / Basso, and Republic Commando / Super Battle Droid.

Has anyone who's recently been to the Exton or King of Prussia TRU's noticed any Doctor Who figures? I've heard rumors that they're popping up in Philly, and was wondering if someone might be able to confirm if they've made their way up here yet. Thanks!

<font color="green"> So today I went to one of the Walmart's on the boulevard. What do I see? The new Jedi Evolutions pack (Quigon, Bultar, and Luke). I pick it up and notice someone took out Quigon's robe, Bultar and Luke and replaced it with Endor Leia and the first ANH Luke from like...1995.

So basically some [censored] bought a bunch of the wave 2 Evolution packs, took out what they wanted, replaced it with old $#!t, then being cheap @$Sh0les, they returned it. Walmart being clueless, gave this I>ickh3ad his money back, and put it back out on the floor.

Without a doubt, the person that did this is a collector, and an older collector too, probably someone that frequents this thread.

And if you're reading this, you sir, are total dog s#!t.

Kinda neat, but nothing spectacular. Do the Millenium Falcon ride first thing in the morning, as the line backs up almost instantly as they can only accomodate 8 people at a time. The Landspeeder used in Episode IV was on display, as were a ton of models used in the films.... there were a bunch of costumes on display, and a bunch of weapons (blasters/lightsabers) too. We spent about 90 minutes in there, as my boys did some of the interactive exhibits.

I found almost all of the Wave 1 figures in the Wallmart in Pottstown (including Gree!) They had 2 Grees, I picked up one not sure if the other is still there or not.

Went to Wallmart in Parksburgh (24 hour) and found more Wave 1 + Gree. They had 3 of them last night at 12:00 AM.

They also have some clearance Vintage style Leia on Endor and IG88 and Bossk. (In the clearance section not by the other figures)

Is anyone going to a Midnight Madness event tomorrow night?
If so, which one?
It would be cool to meet some other 'scummers.

ANYONE? ANYONE? BUELLER?

Seems this forum is more for scalpers than 'scummers. I can't believe I'm the only Philly Area 'scummer going to a midnight madness event.
What's the big secret in not sharing where you're going to be tonight...afraid other 'scummers are gonna show up and grab "your" cache of "First Day Of Issue" figs?!?
Don't want to be bothered by other 'scummers?!?

I probably won't be going, just because there's nothing really that grabs my interest that's coming out. I mean, I'd like the quad-gunner clone, but I don't really need to go toy hunting at 12 am for one figure

I went up to the Montgomeryville TRU and got most of what I wanted. They had CW and Movie figures in abundance, although I didn't get Capt. Rex (must be the popular guy). Didn't see any of the ROTJ wave of figures, just the Realistic Clone Wars figures. Also had the new Evolutions sets and B-wing exclusive.

Stopped at Willow Grove Super WM on the way home in the hopes of finding the figures I missed. At 12:45 they had nothing on the pegs, it was all still shrink wrapped on pallets. That toy dept is one of the worst I have ever seen. Since opening, I think they have restocked the toy aisles maybe 3 times. And not one single exclusive has shown up there - no Droid factory, no comic packs, nothing. For the newness, location, and size of the store, they should really have their act together.
