Re: New Battle Packs

I found both Battle Packs at the Meyerland Target this afternoon.

And I remember seeing the new Ms. Marvel there last week. I'll let you know if I see another one.
They haven't gotten new DC Universe figures in ages!

Re: New Battle Packs

hey all,

i'm still looking for the potf 12" speederbike and scout, and sandtrooper and dewback. shipping on these things is killing me on ebay, so i thought i would ask again locally if anyone has them and wants to sell them.

Re: New Battle Packs

Picked up the Ms. Marvel & the Punisher (all black costume) at Target. Also, if anyone missed out on the Wal-Mart exclusive Force Unleashed Packs (Vader & Incinerator Troopers and Palpatine & Shadow Stormtroopers), TRU has once again picked up someone else's exclusive and are now selling them, repackaged in Legacy Collection packaging. I saw them at the Katy Mills TRU.

Re: New Battle Packs

Westheimer TRU has them as well.

I saw the new ESB figure wave at Bedrock City this afternoon, so I guess they're hitting other stores, too.

That's the coolest looking Emperor they've ever done.
I'm so sorry I laughed at it when the early pics came out.

Re: New figs

Empire Strikes Back Wave:
Luke Skywalker (Medical Frigate)

All Jedi and Sith figures should have this kind of articulation!

Emperor Palpatine (new head)

Captain Needa

Princess Leia (Medical Frigate)

Rebel Hoth Soldier

Ugnaught

BAD: U-3PO


I went to several Wal-marts on the southwest side and every one of them had all of this wave.

Re: New figs

finally got around to seeing star trek yesterday. i was pretty impressed with the film.

there were several tributes to old school star trek, but they didn't copy it, or stray too far from the story. i really think the story went well.

i liked most of the characters. especially uhura. i found myself liking her alot.

Re: New figs

Then I guess I shouldn't say I've been buying the new Star Trek figures & playsets, should I?


I saw Terminator Salvation tonight. I liked it better than T3 but not nearly as good as the older films.

And the only thing displayed in my Star Wars room is Star Wars. Everything else is in the other room. That's right beyotch, I've got two rooms!

New ships

Came across the Magna droid fighter and the Vulture droid at Walmart today.

Also saw them at Target later. Looks to be about $4 cheaper there too.

U-3P0 variation finds?

In case you haven't heard, there's a variation on the build a droid for the current ESB wave. Here's a link to a post with a pic in the U-3P0 thread.

So far I've only seen the silver version in town. Has anyone found the champagne version yet?

The only pieces I have are silver.

And I had no idea he was the "E-choota!" droid. Cool!

RC Droids

I forgot to post, but last Friday, I picked up all 4 of the remote controlled droids, at the Target at I-10 & Fry. At $16.99 each, they are a bit pricey.

Re: RC Droids

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've posted but I've stopped collecting Hasbro stuff and focused more on high end Sideshow stuff

I do hope everyone is well and I check in once in a while.
Anyways, did you guys see that Space Center Houston has a George Lucas exhibit with Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and American Graffiti stuff? Sounds cool!
I will probably check it out on one of my days off. Later everyone!

Re: RC Droids

I haven't read of any mainstream retail sightings of the AotC wave yet, just direct market outlets like online stores and such.

Re: GH Snowspeeder

Just a heads up,
looks like somebody sold their SW collection to Bedrock City on Westheimer. They've got a lot of new carded figures & loose vehicles at very good prices.

I picked up the McQarrie Rebel Soldier w/coin for $11.99!

09 packaging

I saw Saga Legends repacked figures in the new package style today at Target and TRU. Looks like the little cardboard weapons lockers are a different color now - tan/orange stripes instead of blue.

Re: Ep. 2 Legacy Wave

I got my AotC wave in from HTS. Ordered Thursday, received yesterday. Used the SW2010 code for 10% off. Ended up paying less than $6 more than if I'd bought them at local retail.

Re: Ep. 2 Legacy Wave

and for the amount of gas i know that you use hitting all those stores, shopping from your computer chair seems to be the way to go!

i know people like the hunt and discovery and all, and i used to as well. i'm over that now. when i was in college and i had loads of spare time, it was one thing. my time is a little more valuable now

Re: Ep. 2 Legacy Wave

Yep. I've cut way back on the hunt in the last year.

Saw the Rancor and the radio control astromechs on the shelf for the first time in town while at Target on Jone/249 this morning.
