New Titanium & Saga Legends

Hey thanks for the link to the Titanium thread!

After I posted yesterday, I went by Wal-Mart and scored all of the Titanium wave you had mentioned. Sorry for the blurry pics, I took them this morning before I left for work at 5am!


They also had the new wave of Legends (Sandtrooper, Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot), ARC Trooper (Red Commander), Tri-Droid, Snowtrooper, Saesee Tiin, & Clone Trooper (Episode III)... they had all of them except the Snowtrooper & Saesee Tiin, but I passed on all of them except this fellow...)


All of these were found at the new Wal-Mart on Grand Parkway near 1093.

When is the first wave of the Legacy Collection coming out (Wave 5)!? I thought Hasbro had originally said December 15?!

Scored new wave of Clone Wars figures @ "downtown" Target during lunch! Managed to grab 2 Spacetroopers! Awesome figure! They had several more of each figure when I left!

Re: New Titanium & Saga Legends

I've seen the quarter scale Darth Maul at the Toys R Us at Katy Mills Mall. They have had it for awhile.... since right after Christmas. A bit pricey (I think it was around $80) so I can't tell you what it's like out of the box, but looking at it, it looks pretty cool.

Re: New Clone Wars figs

Not Star Wars, but it's something I guess...



Picked up the Indiana Jones fis from eBay, and paid what I would have paid at retail! They are from Canada, so they have the multi-linguil(sp?) stickers on them, but since I open them anyway....
The Skeletor fig is from Mattycollector.com, the 3rd in their new series of Master of the Universe collector figs. Yet another line that I have fallen into...

headin out tonite to see Fanboys @ midnight.
How was it? Might try to catch a matinee this weekend.

Found wave 5 at WM on Eldridge/1960 this morning. Two cases sitting were on a cart labeled 2008 Wave 3 Revision (2?). I almost didn't check them. I have most of these on order from HTS but picked up a couple I missed (spacetrooper) or wanted extras of (jawa and brainiac).

Re: New Clone Wars figs

I saw it at the Angelika tonight, and I loved it!

Very funny but it's also very sentimental. I'm glad it finally came out. Definitely go see it!

Re: New Clone Wars figs

Saw Legacy wave 5 again this morning, this time at the 290/Tidwell WM. Looked like they had all the figures but the Spacetrooper.

What happened to HK-47?

I thought the Wave 5 build-a-droid was supposed to be HK-47 ?

Also, did they fix the head positioning on the Luke and Han Stormtrooper figures - compared to the removable helmeted Stormtrooper which had the "you wanna piece of me" look to him? (I hate how deformed and oversized the removable helmets look, but it is excusable for Han & Luke. IMHO, Commander Cody was the only one they got right in this respect).

I went to Wal-Mart (I-45 & Louetta) late last night and stopped by the Star Wars aisle, only to find they've jacked up the price of a figure to around $7.50


If that's the case across all WM's, then I'll start checking Target and TRU instead ... at least they have a better chance of having figures in stock.

SW figures here in Las Vegas are $7.68 at Walmart. Target is still $6.99 but they hardly ever stock or scalper's clean them out before anyone has a chance.

Re: sorta quiet around here

Hey Jorge. Any news on this?

Jorge said:
and they are supposed to be moving that TRU across the street on the other side of i-10 at bunkerhill. they have a lease pending at the new village plaza they are building.
Wondering how reliable your source was and/or if plans might have been scrapped due to the economy...

Re: sorta quiet around here

i'm not at that job anymore E. i moved out to the galleria. i know they hollowed out that TRU on bunkerhill, so i doubt it's ever coming back.

i'll check with my former co-workers and see if there was an update to the list of stores coming to that development. they handed them out to all of the local tenants.

here's the link to the development site. the PDF that shows the tenant list is on the bottom. i have no clue as to how current this is, but #2 still shows as Toys/Babies R us as (Pending)

i found a legacy #25 snowtrooper this morning. apparently he's hard to find? i just walked in to target this morning and picked him up. i almost passed on him, but i can't resist OT figs.

Re: sorta quiet around here

Thanks for the link. That info looks like it is pretty up to date as it shows the space for the Circuit City they were almost done with as available.

Re: sorta quiet around here

I found the new Ep.IV wave at Meyerland Target but just the cantina aliens were left.
Also got the Dark Empire 2-pack

Oh and I booked a room & ordered my pass for SDCC this past week, so I'm pretty psyched about that!
