Found the new Comic packs in Springfield at Target. Luckily they just put them out as I needed 2 sets.
Got the Fel / Hobbie set a couple of weeks ago, but it's nice to know our Target's getting something!

Perfect timing in Springfield Target again! Worker was walking down the aisle with a case of wave 7 as I turned the corner. Told her I'll put them up as I was going to buy 10 of 12
Great day to go shopping!

I think they were waiting for you to leave town before putting new things out

There must of been a mistake at our WM, because there was one side of an entire island full of SW figures. :O Its the most thats been there (Or a diffrent variety of figures anyway) sence ROTS came out. All the Sandtroopers where squad commanders though....Its all I can find,lol. I'm not looking to buy them per say, but I guess if I came across a non-leader one I'd proboly pick one up.

Hello,
I am new to this site, I met a fellow collector from Morton Il today and we went on a toy run, but anyway he was the one that told me that I should check out this site. Normally I post on Sirstevesguide, but I thought that I would look into this site. There are a lot more people from Il on this site than there are on the sirsteves.

When we where out earlier we went to Target and they did not have anything. I decided to go back later because I noticed that they had soda on sale and I needed some for home anyway to get back to the point, I went back to the Star Wars section and there was a guy stocking the puzzles and he came over to me and said that they never have the ones that I need. Darth Revan and Darth Malak. So I asked him if they had any figures in the back. I was waiting for the reply that we cant bring stuff from the back, but he said I will look and see if we have anything. Sure enough he brought out a case of wave 7. So I got concept Han, ewoks, Anakin and Tycho. He also said that they had a bunch of cases in the back. The case was damaged and most of the figures cards are bent. Luckily Han's was not. So they should be putting out more in the next couple of days. Also Wm on Veterans and Market did not have anything. Farm and Fleet only had a ugh Marine. TRU did not have anything nor did Meijer but Meijer should be getting some this weekend according to a stocker in the toy dept. I also heard that Target had the new battle packs in yesterday.

Welcome to the boards lordvader97!

Thanks again for hooking me up with Darth Malak!

Along with not finding much on the Bloomington toy run yesterday, I did also go to Acme comics where the owner had put out some newer Star Wars stuff since last time I'd been there. He's now got

Vintage AT-AT $100
mediocre vintage Death Star Playset $60
Geonosis MISB playset $35
MISB Mustafar playset $35
loose ARC-170 $35
Loose Command Gunship $40
and a newer selection of vintage joes and star Wars loose figs, though his loose modern colection is down to the slimmest of pickins.


Anyway while I was there I got

1x vintage Nikto/no weapon - $5
1x vintage complete palace Klaatu -$5
1x tactical screen w/o Riekaan -$2 (sweet!)

I wanted teh 2 vintage figs since they are two that have yet to be made in the modern line. They will accentuate my modern Jabba's dio section of my collection.

EDIT: - I forgot I went to Wal-Mart last night in Pekin , and while they didn't have anything new, I was finally able to score the last of their Vader with Coin album sets on clearence for...........$1.35 after tax!

Work took me back to Bllomington today. Target had nothing left but a Lando and Torture rack Han. I went back to Acme comics and bought the command gunship. It was missing the tail gun and the two red missles that fire from the large wing cannons. Luckily those are two items that can still be ordered directly from Hasbros replacement parts page, all for only 2.50

Ok, so I'll ask again. Is anyone still looking for either McVader, Malak, or Revan. I have extras of each that I don't really need and will return to Wal-Mart if I have no takers. Let me know.

I'm not in need at this time, but thanks anyway. If you're looking to unload check the modern North American classifieds section. You will probably have bites in minutes due to the scarcity of these figures right now.


I picked up the Battlefront 2 clone pack at Acme comics in Peoria today for 29.99. They still had 2 left and 3 droid packs.

Nothing at Peoria Target
Full pegs at TRU, but nothing new worth noting.

Morton WalMart had 1 pre-cyborg Grievous left from the wave 5 revision case. I picked him up. I had been there 48 hours before and they had nothing of note. The whole case must've gone in one day, which is odd for Morton.

I bought the UGH gold coin Darktrooper the other day...and after reading the back of the card and seeing that the Darktrooper is a "super battle droid" I decided I could live without it...

...So...if any of you fellas on this thread are looking for a UGH Darktrooper LMK...1st come 1st served...exact cost...exact shipping...

It's pretty confusing though, especialy since under that, the card reads, "genetically engineered for combat" as if they were clones.

I always thought the later phases were heavily 'borged / genetic engineered combination.

According to Wiki:

Wikipedia said:
Although Dark Troopers were originally introduced as extremely powerful Imperial Battle Droids, they would later be ret-conned, taking into account the purported superiority of creative clones over droids; the final product of the Dark Trooper program was said to be elite Imperial Stormtroopers wearing the Phase III armor as a powered exosuit, combining the advantages of both.

Went to Peoria Target and TRU today.

Had both Endor and Hoth Ultimate Battlepacks no AT-RT set. Also had Bespin, coruscant clone, and Hunt for Grievous Battlepacks, 1 McSnowtrooper.

TRU had alot of new figures, mainly wave 4 and saga legends stuff. Probably 125+ figures, some McVaders.

I ended up with the Endor Battlepack from Target, and at TRU I got another set of maroon Battledroids, one coruscant clone commander,( which I make a grunt), and a EVO mold orange pauldron sandtrooper, which they had 3 or 4 more of.

ALl in all, a good hunt today!

It was nice to finally meet you as well. No I didn't find anything at MIEJER, did you find anything at TRU? I have hid a Darth Revan if anyone is interested in him i could pick him up and trade him for a concept rebel trooper if anyone has an extra one.

no he meant the Hobbie and Fel wave, I thought that the Keller, Boba Fett and Purple Sandcrawler droid where suppose to be out in October but I have yet to see or hear of anyone finding them. I have been to both wal-marts west side and veterans this morning and the both had the Hobbie/Fel wave but nothing else.

I'm always glad to hear that many of you are having luck with finding figs...cause I'm sure not! It's frustrating!! I hit 3 different Wal-Marts and a Target throughout Indiana yesterday, and nothing!! You would've thought I'd have found at least 1 figure I needed. All 4 stores were filled with Legends. Seems like they're getting more Legends in lately than basic. I've seen remnants of wave 8, but I still haven't seen much from waves 6-7.5. And I'm still working on UGH, and that's exactly how I feel, ugh!
On another note, I bought that Target Ultimate Battle Pack yesterday, Hoth one. It was actually a Christmas present for me from my girlfriend, but she knew about the whole buying it with a Redcard and getting an entry for visit to Lucasfilm and since I have a REDcard (she doesn't), I had to buy it for myself. It's so cool! I told her $49 was a little pricey, but she "forced" me to get it! She's so great! Well, wish me luck in finding something soon.
