Baybrook TRU had the Jabba Ultra wave figure assortment this morning. Tons and tons of figure pegwarmers.

Can't wait to get the silver clone trooper soon. Hope everyone posts when they finally hit.

Looks like the Westheimer TRU finally got the Jabba the Hutt & Denziens 3-pack in good supply. Same for the Obi-Wan & Jango sets.
Not much else on Westheimer. Dunvale Wal-Mart still has those same 4 Zam Wessels, & Target still had some of the cup sets.

I had a feeling the cups would be plastic before I even got them. I guess they were afraid they'd have a lot of broken ones if they were actual glass.

Well, I finally got a chance to hit my closest TRU (The Woodlands) and I didn't see any really new SW stuff.....but I am happy to report that I started looking thru the LOTR trilogy figures they had and the second figure I touched was a Twilight Frodo!!! YEA!!!! Now I have TF ......hell, I figured I'd never find him on a peg.

I also hit the Woodlands Walmart and Target.....the Walmart didn't have anything.....but Target had the deluxe Jango and Obi Wan....one of each.....then a few packs of the Jabba's Denziens,Jabba, and some sets of the glasses. Be sure to check the endcaps by the bicycles in Target....they had some of the Screen scenes on clearance.....as well as a bunch of the LOTR stuff.

No wonder I kept missing the Clone Wars cartoon. Didn't realize it was only about 5 min. long. I was expecting like a 1/2 hour show. Oh well at least now I know to be there right at 7 or I'm gonna miss it.

No new finds in quite a while.

<font size="2" face="arial">I did the same thing when it first came out. When they say a micro series they mean it.

Yesterday afernoon I found a few 12 Obi Wan's at the Baybrook TRU. I didn't have DSL connection back up until now so I couldn't post it.

What happened to the Target next door? Did they build a Super Target somewhere close or just shut it down?

The Baybrook Target is now a Super Target, a block further down Bay Area Blvd. Just continue travelling west away from the freeway, and it will be on your left. Or, if you're already at TRU, just drive through the parking lots across the store fronts and when you run out of concrete you're there.

Not that it'll do you any good- I've only seen one new case (a Yavin) in the past couple of months...

Too much work for me this week to look.


Hopefully, next week will be better.

Starbasser, did you ever find the Yavin wave?

Well my local Wal-mart put out the new wave with Ozzel, Dengar and Bossk. I picked them up quite happily. Also had some of the Yavin wave in with that case. Like one of each from the Yavin wave. Still not much at my Target. Saga scenes are down to $9.98. No Glasses yet. My TRU got in the repacked Jango and Obi Wan Kamino Ultra sets. Only one of each. Anyway that is all.

<font size="2" face="arial">I actually got them off ebay. I payed $35 + shipping. Not too bad. I just didn't want to end up missing them if they were cancelled, and spend a fortune on them. That's the newest figs I've got tho.

Baybrook TRU and Target had nothing this morning.

Anyone see the Star Destroyer wave around here yet?

No Star Destroyer wave yet.

Just got the Silver Clonetrooper from Baybrook TRU. They wouldn't sell it to me by itself; I had to buy $14.99 of SW stuff first.

Someone else was there in the aisle next to me asking them the same questions. Was that red-headed guy one of you?

I didn't get to make it to TRU today and I was wondering if they had gotten them. I ordered mine from Amazon the other day so I wouldn't have to buy $15 worth of stuff.

Any other reports around town?

Well I hit my TRU yesterday and picked up the Silver Clone for $4.99 each. I just bought the 2 I wanted and didn't have to buy $15 dollars worth of stuff to get them. That was the good news. The bad news is that they were ALL in busted up packages! I mean every one of the 20 that they had. I picked out the 2 best ones I could find. I may have to go back and see if they put out any more but I doubt it. They usually only get one shipment of the promo stuff. Anyway...just and FYI.

same thing happened to me with the Silver clone but I did find one that was in really good shape.

it looked like someone had bent all the cards. Also I think the silver looks really cheap on the clone the vader and r2-d2 are much better.

Well the Vader and the R2 were vac-metalized. While the Boba and the Clone were simply painted Silver. Tow completely different processes. I also prefer the vac-metalized figures. But I think that Hasbro is just cheaping out on the figures in order to produce a greater number of them. I would even be willing to pay more for them if they were all vac-metalized. But i digress....a non crushed package would do at this point.

Found Red Leader X-Wing at Westheimer TRU. THey had a lot. No sign of any good single figures. No sign of any good single figures. Found a $4.98 screen scene - Genosian War Room at Target San Felipe. Now, I just need the other one.

Yeah, it has been a while, been pretty busy with everything and have hardly been going out looking for new toys. The Deluxe clonetroopers were yellow and there was one pack remaining, I didn't purchase it because I am not a variant collector, I got the regular and that suited me just fine. But I did pick up the only ultra obi won and jango.

One other thing, I missed the Leia Unleashed, I have the entire set minus her, so if anyone can sell it to me for at least less than ebay ridiculous prices send me a pm. Or maybe we can work out a trade of sorts.

Happy Easter to all...and Happy hunting.

I'm missing Leia as well. The Star Wars Insider a couple of issues back said that they would re-release Leia, ROTJ Luke, and a couple of other recent hard-to-find ones this Fall on updated packaging, so I'm going to wait.

There are others, though, that I still need
(I just recently got into the Unleashed line). If anyone has any of the following (carded or loose) that they are willing to part with, let me know:
Jango Fett, Darth Vader (with or without removable helmet), Anakin Skywalker

Picked up a Red Leader X-Wing at the Baybrook TRU. There was one left this afternoon. No new figures on the rack. Did pick up two silver clone troopers for the X-Wing purchase and they still had a few left behind the courtesy booth.

<font size="2" face="arial">It's been pretty slow here lately.


I'll check and see if I have any extras of those figures. Off hand, I don't recall buying extras of those but I'll check.

Thanks Huff.

The report for today is the same as yesterday, and includes the Texas City Wal-Mart as well. They didn't have a single fig on the pegs.
