V-Wings @ Target 280

This afternoon I saw about 5 V-Wings and 2 Sith Infiltrators at Target on 280. They also had TAC waves 1 & 2 minus anything McQuarrie. And of course there were about a million Order 66 2-packs on clearance.

Has anyone seen the Marvel Legends Blob wave in town?

Re: V-Wings @ Target 280

Hey I have an extra McQuarrie R2 & C-3P0. I was wondering if anyone would like to trade it for a Concept Storm Trooper and Boba Fett. Also if anyone sees a concept Chewbacca I would appreciate a heads up or pick up an extra for me. Thanks if youre interested PM me.

TAC Wave 3

Wave 3 has hit! I got two sets. Found a case at Roebuck and 280 Wal-Mart's. 280 also has the VTAC (Vintage) figures and the Father's Day two Pack if anyone wants them. The Vintage figures are a must have, this is the best wave of them all imo.

Re: TAC Wave 3

Yikes, Wave 3 already. I never even see anything but the remains of Wave 2. I still don't have McFett or Biggs.


On another note, I had a weird experience at the Trussville Wal-Mart late Thursday night. I stopped in on my way home around midnight. They had nothing. And I mean that 100% literally. They had nothing...the entire toy section was completely gone. Toys, the shelves, everything. It was about 60 x 60 feet of wide open floor. I'm guessing they're redesigning the layout of the stoor. They did have a couple of large screen TVs there in the empty space. Maybe the electronics dept is moving over there? It was definitely a surreal sight, though.

Re: TAC Wave 3

I'm certainly having no luck. I've only seen the scraps of Wave 3, and even then, only a couple of times. I thought I got lucky last week, when I stopped by the Wal-Mart just north of Springville in the middle of the night. 3 cases of figures sitting unopened on the pallet. I see them marked as Wave 2, so I get excited thinking I may finally get McFett. They were all the Wave 2 Revision cases, and had no McFetts in them. I wasn't too happy, to say the least. Why pull arguably the most popular figure, who is already shortpacked, to make room for more Wave 1 figures? Argh...

Thankfully, I was lucky enough to get an order in when Hasbro Toy Shop had the McQuarrie Luke available for that very short period of time. It arrived yesterday. That is one nice fig!

Re: Nothing!

I have found the concept Boba Fett @ Walmart. The WM in Pelham & Alabaster usually have several figures. The new Target opening in Alabaster at the end of this month may be well stocked. Anyone know when the holiday special Fett comes out?

McChewie for McFett?

Does anyone by chance have an extra McQuarrie concept Boba Fett that they'd be willing to trade for a McQuarrie concept Chewbacca? Figured I'd ask locally before hitting the "Classifieds" section.

Re: McChewie for McFett?

Sorry Jason I have not seen those figures, but I did find the new Comic Packs at Trussville Wal-Mart last night. I took all of them, nothing left. Check the other Wal-Mart's around town for them.

McTreasure Hunt

Well, either the market is finally getting saturated with enough product, or the scalpers are finally starting to realize that the McQuarrie figures aren't exactly Hot Wheels Treasure Hunts and returning some of their extras. Over the last 10 days, I've seen 2 McStormies and 2 McChewies; all 4 at different locations around town. I think it's only going to get better when the new Galactic Hunt gold coin figs hit. Then the regular versions should be in abundance as everyone tries to track down the GH versions.

Re: McTreasure Hunt

I haven't posted here in like a thousand years.

I'm in Montgomery. Our TRU got the Saga Legends with the Sandtrooper, 501st Clone and VOTC Boba Fett day before yesterday. Clones and STs are apparently 2 per case. Our TRU also has the Bantha redder/browner variation (if that's a big deal, we didn't get those for a long time). They reset their toy aisle again yesterday and put out an old case of Saga with Commander Appo in it.

Target has restocked the new comic sets twice but no new single carded action figures. They also had the re-issue Vader TIE.

Wal-Marts are still glutted with Moff Jerjerrods and Endor Threepios. They did get a lot of Wave 2 and 3, though, over the months, but TRU is where it's at down here right now. They restocked the Endor AT-AT as well.

I haven't been to BHAM in a long, long time. Gas is TOO expensive.

Lots of 25th GIJOE down here, too, at WMs, Target and TRU. Keep waiting for TRU to restock the singles. I've been fortunate enough to score eight COBRA Officers for my army and that's having missed them on several occasions as well.

Transformers movie toys down here are utterly decimated. I've never seen anything sell out like that before. All TRU has are the smaller Megatrons now and a few of those leftover protoform Optimuses and Starscreams.

I actually saw three KIDS digging through the Star Wars figures the other day. One of them was gabbing about the rarity of this or that and he actually seemed to know what he was talking about. I nearly fell over. I haven't seen a kid after Star Wars since ROTS.

Re: McTreasure Hunt

TAC Wave 4 has hit Birmingham. Found them at Roebuck & Trussville Wal-Mart's. Got all of Gold Coine figures I needed. These were the Revision Cases that doesn't come with the McQuarrie Vader, which blows big time. Hasbro is making the McQuarrie Figures just about impossible to find.

re

TRU here in Montgomery got the Arena Encounter set. There were only two and they're gone now.

The sale has dwindled the action figures down a little bit. I suspect they have more Wave 4 in the back they aren't putting out until the sale is over.
