Hey everybody, just an FYI, Target dropped the Big Millenium Falcon to $34 if you can find one. I got one this weekend--I couldn't believe it! Keep your eyes peeled. I'd be willing to bet that the AT-TE is similarly priced, again if you can find one.
Stopped by the Lakeline Target today and scored the newest 5 figures from the Clone Wars line (animated Padme/Goldie astro-droid/Grievous' bodyguard/orange clone/clone commander) - they still had a few left of most as of about 12pm.
I have been seeing a few remnants of the Target exclusive Mighty Muggs recently (northside of town) - still haven't been able to locate them all yet. I also found the AT-TE squad battle pack this past weekend at a Target in Cedar Park.
Finding the WalMart comic packs now at most of the stores in the north part of town. Also saw a lone Darth Revan Mighty Mugg at the Lakeline WalMart this morning if anyone is still looking for that.
Also, if you are looking for the Clone Wars Grievous, I have been seeing him still at several different WalMarts the past two days - they have really been stocking up on Clone Wars figures and it seems he is still showing up on the pegs around here - could save you a few bucks as opposed to the TRU alternative.
Last night, I found a bunch of new stuff at the 'Mart at 71/MoPac. New comic packs (Luke/Deena in black & Wedge/Borsk, but they wouldn't sell me the Luke/Deena set. It scanned as "do not sell." Ugh.) and new single figures (cantina wave, picked up Obi-Wan, Jawa/droid, 'trooper Han; saw but didn't buy Spacetrooper, Wioslea, Trinto/Dice; no sign of 'trooper Luke or Brainiac.)
They had a few Marvel Universe, too.
Also saw a new comic pack at TRU at Lamar/71 (Luke/Clone Emperor) and a very few Marvel Universe there.
I've been checking in on a lot of the Northside Wal-Marts from time to time and their pegs are remarkably empty (and have been for quite some time). Makes me wonder when they are going to start getting in more basic figures, since all of the other stuff they carry keeps getting new stock still... For now Target seems to be the place to go around here.
Yeah, found them at $13.74 today at the Capital Plaza Target. Been in 3-4 Targets already this week, waiting/looking for the last price drop, after jumping on the Christophsis pack at $27.xx.
CP Target also had the new regular battle packs...Jabba (2), AT-TE Squad (1) and Yavin (1). I'm not into the Animated stuff so I scooped up the only Yavin, but the others were there as of 1pm or so.
Anybody seen the Empire wave around town yet? I hit up the 183 and 35/Parmer WMs last night and found nada.
Edit: I should clarify that I only saw the Sarlacc BP...and that goes for most of the Targets around town. The Christophsis packs don't appear to have survived the $27.xx price at Cap. Plaza, 35/Parmer, 183/Ohlen or Lamar/Ben White...as all I saw this week at all of those was an endcap with a dozen plus Sarlacc sets.
Battle at Yavin and Jabba/TC-70 are at most Targets -- particuarly Capitol Plaza and 183/360 -- not so much Ohlen Road.
New Clone Wars figures -- green clone, Jar Jar, Kit Fisto, red battle droid -- found at Capitol Plaza, Ohlen, and 183/360 but in limited quantities.
Wal-Marts -- Cameron/183 and 183/620 are absolutely barren and have been for 4-6 weeks. I mean nothing but Yarnas, and only like six of them. I expect that when they restock they'll have the Empire wave (but I bought all but the Ugnaught on Hasbro's site -- five figures for $7.99 each -- basically same as the store price -- and only $3.50 for shipping for all five -- I suggest taking that route).
same at the Walmart at the Palmer exit on I35, looked as if they just stocked out several cases of the Kit Fisto/JarJar CW wave. Hasbro really REALLY need to stop having the cardbacks look so similar to each other as there were 20 pegs of CW, Legends, and Legacy all mixed together.
Thought I'd throw this out to the local collectors... I'm selling my Master Replicas Princess Leia blaster over in the props forum. If anyone is interested, I'm willing to meet up at the Southpark Meadows shopping center and would take $200 as I wouldn't have to ship it.
Hey, I thought I'd offer this locally rather than stick it in the for sale forum since it's a lot easier to hand deliver than to ship:
I have a 12" Speeder Bike & Scout MISB (the Target exclusive) that I'm looking to unload. The box itself is a little rough from the 10 years or so that I've been lugging it around from one locale to the other, but the toy is mint. I'd like to get $45 for it (basically what I paid for it at retail way back when). I can meet up in North Austin or Cedar Park.
Hate to let it go, but I'm got to trim that fat on my big items.
Stopped at a few along 35 all the way down to one at Slaugther, nothing new, the only Comic Packs I saw were the repacks like the Vader and Rebel Officer one...plus things were so picked over that it was waste of time and gas, same with Target and TRU.
