Picked up a Grail Knight, and a Cairo swordsman for $3 each at Flora WM. They also had a Jungle Cutter for $13, and some older SW figures for $3 each.

Re: Central Illinois Finds...

Fairview Heights Target has a bunch of Organa wave figures, and a ton of Titaniums I've never seen at retail. my real mission was to buy new clothes. I've lost about 20 lbs over sometime now, and most of my clothes are to big. So I searched evrywhere for clothes that fit me, and looked nice. Which was realy hard. Either I found a shirt I realy liked, and it they were out of my size, or the clothes just looked horrible (The usual case). I ended up going to Old Navy, we're I found 2 pairs of pants (32X34's), and two shirts, size large to fit me. One thing I didn't know, hot girls work at Old Navy. Heh, who knew?

Re: Central Illinois Finds...

There hasn't been any SW figures here untill today sence the post X-Mas clearence. They put them all on clearence. Then here just a couple weeks later, there's about 20 pegs, with 2 figures each on 'em, at full price again.
So who ever found 'em on clearence lucked out I guess.

Oh, and also, I'm lookin' for a BSG MK2 Viper titanium. Its the new one with the logo's and Starbuck's call sign. If I find one I'll let everyone know so they don't hafe to look evrywhere they go for me.

The new Meijer in Urbana has a bunch of new Saga Legends but the real surprise was the price.... 6.49 a Figure! Thats a steal as opposed to Wal Marts new prices.

I knew fatty would flop...


Barren Walls at Wallmart in Wash-your-town...looks like they're preping for alot of new stuff...lots more of good 'ol yarna and some of the Bail wave in the clearance isle too...

Also, I saw an A-Wing in there...didn't really know anything about it, and didn't feel like spending the $25 on it...it looks alot like a Re-hash of my old POTF2 one...

Re: Central Illinois Finds...

Well, my Hasbro 09' list budget just went up.


2X ANH Space Stormtrooper
1X Beared Hoth Rebel
1X Other Hoth Rebel
1X Captain Needa
$35.

The new addition?

1X Turbo Tank.

http://www.actionfigurenews.ca/boards/showthread.php?t=265

Soo...Guess I gotta rethink my plan here. I was gonna save $23 a month and finish this list off to cover it all. ($275 worth of stuff. OMG I just did Math!) :

This years TO BUY prop list :

$15 Nurse Joker Belt and trim.
$60 M-65 Feild Jacket SAR Marine and Firefly Guy
$40 (or so) Joker Suspenders for Joker 2.0
$60 New Joker Tie
$40 A bunch of Sintra for any costumes and projects.
$60 (or so) Sandtrooper pouches, 2 MP40 sets, 1 french. I'm hoping to get 'em cheap


And then off to the side, $35 worth of airsoft to modify as well.
I wonder when the Turbo Tank will be released? I gotta figure another $100-$150 in there. Dang it.


I still need to sell my SW collection. To pay for my new SW collection. Or something.

Re: Central Illinois Finds...

Poop...you beat me...


I was at Target a little after 12:30 and saw the new stuff...almost got the CW spacetrooper guy...but all I was really looking for were the 2 Manga guards...they also had the exclusive battle packs...CW battle of something and the sarlac pit...


Is this the "spacetrooper" we are getting?...

I was hoping it was going to be the troops standing outside on the deathstar when the falcon is being pulled in by the tractor beam...



yeah new stuff...

The ANH Spacetrooper is in Legacy Wave Five, so it should be up for the next time we get some new figure mojo.

Re: Central Illinois Finds...

Its actualy got a blue in it, but it has that sorta dusty greyish look to it, deffintly one of my favorite colors. Evry light diffrence makes it a diffrent color, so it preety cool. (Makes it look like the room is about 10 colors though)

Thats my bedroom.
And ya, deffintly hate it when people paint on the covers. Either way....Beats the crap out of the green. :

BARGELOAD OF STUFF AT WALLY IN WASHINGTON!

TIE, if you need MagnaGuards, you can get them there. They have atleast 5 of them as of 4 P.M. today.

Gave into buying the Darth Revan Mighty Mugg...I weighed the uglyness against the fact that he's my favorite character, and the latter won over...

I swear I've been here, but it seems every time I go out, all I find are 7 Yarnas, and spaces for another 40-60 brand new figures.

What is up with the retail chains? None of them had their toy sections reset until like a week ago! This year, last year, and in 06, and 05. Really this is the 4th year I've noticed it. How can these companies have a successful toy aisle if they don't stock it between christmas and valentines day? And Wal Mart for Gods sake, removed almost all their SW toys 2 weeks before Christmas to make room for 12 pegs worth of generic plastic captain Rex masks that are now sitting on clearence for $1. WTF

Same here, those Rex costume things were bad ideas.
They should fire the guy that thought they'd sell.

Re: Central Illinois Finds...

Salem and Centralia WM's both had the new animated CW figures. Just need those Spacetroopers and the Viper titanium.
Titaniums are hard to come by in general around here it would seem.

With the economic turndown, the stores re-stocking-thus nothing to buy, and saving for new computer I havent had much to buy lately. But man I wish i had the cash for that lifesize captain Rex.

Re: Central Illinois Finds...

Awsome!
Thanks so much for grabbing it! If it's white and red, and got the little purple Primus logo on the nose, its the right one. Either way I'll take it.
The last MK2 available was a repainted "Stealth version", so I have no doubt its the right one.


The BSG line actualy expired at the end of 2008, they dropped the Basestar, which I've wanted for years, and this is preety much the last BSG Titanium gonna be available.
