Re: Central Illinois Finds...

Oh...and I also need the Titanium: Imperial Landing Craft...

EDIT: and um...the comic 2 pack with the white Vader...

Anyone else think that HasBlow will release the Imperial Officer from the new Bunker set as a single down the road...I wanted to get this when it had two Imps in it...now not so much...

Re: Central Illinois Finds...

Nevermind, I though you meant/said the droid landing craft. Sorry.


But if it's in the same wave they might have it. It was the wave with the droid landing craft, the gold-ish hailfire, and a blue A-Wing. That's all I remember.

Re: Central Illinois Finds...

I found the new comic packs, and a few cases of wave 4, and the legends wave with the blue clone officer at Pekin WalMart. They are pretty well stocked over there.

Re: Central Illinois Finds...

The WM in lincoln had remnants of the latest ROTS legacy wave, and some older harder to find figs like Jodo Kast.

Ya, there isn't a Kroger around here, but I've been keeping a look out for them evrywhere I go. And evryone thought the 3rd wave was hard to find.


As far as the Mandos, do you meen the EE packs (like the BF ones), or the comic pack Mandos?

Re: Central Illinois Finds...

Ah, thought so.


Fairveiw Heights Target had the the Obi-Wan and Yoda Clone Trooper packs, as well as the new CW animated figures.

And also, I may be coming to Peoria the 19th and 20th next month for the Bartonville (Peoria) State Hospital TAPS investigation. Not for sure yet, but I'm realy hoping to make it.

Re: Central Illinois Finds...

Wow, thats preety cool!
I'm realy hoping to start buying some equipment here fairly soon, to start doing local investigations early next year. I'd realy like to do that on the side, so hopefully evrything works out. I'm realy looking foreward to mabey going to the Peoria TAPS visit, so hopefully it all works out and I'll make it.
I've got some locations just here in town picked out I may try and check out. I'm deffintly going to pick up some digital recorders to take audio, and some new memory cards for the digital cameras to take video and stills with before I go on any farther. On a budget, its sorta hard to figure out anything else I can use and not break the bank.


In toy news -

Hit Fairfeild WM to see what they had, finaly, FINALY, found a TDK Joker Thug MM figure. They even had Evolutions packs there, which was odd to see in small town IL.


Then hit Mt Vernon on the way back, and found all 5 variants of the Joker Thug, so I exchanged mine for the one I wanted.
Couldn't beleive it, here I've been looking for it forever, and then found all of them at one store. They also had the new A-Wing there. There was an older dude buying one, I was going to ask him if he collected any SW stuff, or why he was buying it. But as soon as he picked it up, he walked off before I could get a chance to yell at him.


EDIT - Fairfeild also had waves 3 and 4 of the CW figures. I thought about picking some of them up, but I relised I hate them still.

That's the bag for the camera that I'm holding. I decided to do my rediculous "Steve-O" pose.

I also saw them in Peoria the other day. Personally, I'm passing. I've got the last 2 ARC's, and those buggers take up an exceptional amount of room. Just because it's got a wampa barfing up red rocket, doesn't put it in my collection for that price.
