Re: Latest Haul

im in the UK this week in london on business.

i got sooo excited when i saw a toys r us literally blocks away from my hotel. i finally got some time to run over there and go look.

man... i've never seen so many gargans. there had to have been 50 of them. talk about a pegwarmer. that had like 3 or 4 characters, and that was it. around the corner, they actually had some ROTS carded figures! it was neat to see that. no one good though. they had some black SAGA carded figs too.

i'll tell you what they did have, and that was beasts, vehicles and playsets galore. like 40 rancors. a dozen banthas. and about 30 of the lars homestead playsets. lots of vehicles including the large wing tie fighter, etc...

i was very bummed to see the lack of figure selection, and very bummed to see the figs they had were not in trilogo packaging. just the same ol' packaging we get here.

so no score.

Oh sorry, that one I ordered off of Hasbrotoyshop.com
Thanks for the clarification. I thought about ordering it earlier in the week but with tax and shipping it comes out too high by itself. I already have the other two from when I ordered wave 5.

Did find the WM exclusive Gunship for $11. That was pretty sweet.

Re: What happened to HK-47?

Got the Wal-Mart exclusive Ewoks Comic Pack from the store @ I-45/Louetta. They had a bunch of them.

Also, found the new Titaniums. I bought the Twilight (from The Clone Wars) and Anakin's ROTS Starfighter w/Hyperdrive Ring (very cool to display, but the fronts of the engines don't fit very well and are wonky).

looking for

thought i would try my luck here.

i need a sandtrooper with black pauldron from the dewback 12" set. i also need a bikerscout from the speederbike 12" set. i just need the troops, not the sets. i need them complete and mint.

if anyone has some they would like to sell, lemme know. i'm also looking for some marmit sandtroopers.

these are all i need to complete (for the moment) my 12" trooper collection.

Re: sorta quiet around here

yeah plan your days and the panels you want to see, and plan for lots of time inbetween panels, because you have to wait in line for every one. dont expect to go two two panels that end/begin back to back. you won't make it in alot of the times.

Re: sorta quiet around here

Your best bet for getting to see a panel you are interested in is to sit through the one the precedes it as they don't clear the rooms between them. And if you don't make into that preceding panel at least you have a better position in line for the one you wanted.

Re: sorta quiet around here

everything i bought was for sale on their website after SDCC08.

Re: sorta quiet around here

Yeah I'll still order all the exclusives online. Beats standing in line for them and less to carry back home.

And Watchmen was excellent. I saw the 9am showing on the Imax. It's just like the book!
Loved the new Harry Potter trailer, too.

And I saw the AT-TE Squad Battle Pack at the Target on San Felipe.

Re: Comic packs 14-16

Dunvale Wal-Mart had tons of their excl. comic book packs.

The Ewok 3-pack is awesome!
Also saw one lone Riddler from their excl. DC Universe wave. I don't think I've seen any of the other figures anywhere else.

Luke & Han Stormtroopers, Space Trooper

Was passing the WM at Hwy290 near W Tidwell, so went in for cat food and checked out their SW figures.

They had a lot of new figures on the pegs, including around 5 or 6 each of the Luke and Han in Stormtrooper disguises, and the Space Trooper.

Picked up one of each, as I expect these will go fast.

They also had 2 or 3 Jawas too, but I already got one of those a couple of weeks ago.

I'd like to get the cantina aliens, but with money being so tight right now I'll have to wait and see if I can pick them up cheap off eBay sometime.

Steve

PS: Anyone want to trade a Titanium Rogue Shadow for a Titanium Twilight ?

Re: Droids!!!! Anyone???

It costs $60-70 to put those two droids together. I don't think you are going to get any takers offering $20 for the pair.

In any event, you'd probably be better served with a 'WTB:' request in the Modern Classifieds.

Re: Droids!!!! Anyone???

true, but i do know there are a few fanatics here locally in houston that i could share the money with locally, rather than toss it about the us. Not like one of two people on this board dont collect at least 2-3 runs of things for their mint-in-box collection, the on display collection and the play with collection. I tend to try and look locally to work to each others collective benefit. I don't believe in ebay robbery or overcharging folks.

The one with Wedge is pretty awesome.

I guess if you shop at the "downtown" Target, you pay "downtown" prices.

I haven't been to the one on the Beltway down by Pearland. But then, I don't think it's actually open yet.
