Hey guys starting a new thread because the old one has reached 500 posts.

Looks like I might do a toy run with all the new figures out.


Also, if anyone spots the Clone Trooper ultra stylized bobble head let me know. It's the only one I'm missing.

That wave just hit the west coast a few days ago so it could be any day now, J.

Btw, the second wave of Walmart clone two packs are in town. Saw Cody/Echo & Rex/Fives at Katy Mills. New Comic packs are here too. Saw left overs at TRU and the Eldridge Super Target. Still looking for Krayt.

Hi All,

It's been a while since my last post.
The only new figures I've seen lately around the Woodlands are the Corporate Alliance Snail Tank Droid and the new comic packs @ Target. Nothing new @ Walmart or I'm getting late in new findings.
I'm still looking for a Geonosis Assault Battle Pack

TPM wave

Found The Phantom Menace wave this afternoon at Walmart on Eldridge/1960. I picked up Obi, Amidala, Gungan, and Clegg but missed Sidious Holo and Rum Sleg. Only the Jawa and Spacetrooper repacks were left.

Re: TPM wave

might venture over to the TRU again, just to see what they have. i was soo thoroughly disappointed when i discovered that they were not in trilogo packaging. but oh well, i guess the brits do speak english.

Re: TPM wave

I haven't been able to get out and hunt. No one else has come across any TPM wave this past week?

Re: TPM wave

I usually frequent about 6 Wal-marts, 4 Targets, & 2 Tru's and I have yet to see any of the TPM wave or even the new comic packs!

Re: TPM wave

Man the only figures I've seen are a few Clone Wars waves & a WHOLE LOTTA Saga Legends repacks.

I still need a Concept Anakin from the Ep.II wave.

Re: TPM wave

Picked up the TPM wave of legacy figures this morning from the FM 529 and Hwy 6 Target. The Target at Eldridge and Hw6 6 also have the TPM wave.

Re: TPM wave

Gah! That's my local Target. By the time I got there the two I need were gone.

Still an Obi and Amidala as of 5:30.

Bebop, keep an eye on HEB. I've seen more of the Ep2 wave there than anywhere.

Re: TPM wave

Probably not this year.
Too many concerts coming up, and plus most of the guests I've either met already or not overly excited about.
But if you've never been to Plano or if it's been a while, it's always a fun weekend.

Re: TPM wave

Please point me to a grocery store that has more than 10 Star Wars figures. Kroger? Nope. Randalls? Nada. Food Town? Puh-lease.

Fact is, in that particular location I've found the AotC wave twice. HEB carries Legacy, Clone Wars and Saga Legends figures (and cheaper than anyone else at $7.28, I might add.) They carry Titaniums. They even carry the vehicles for the 4" scale. Not to mention I've seen Galactic Heroes and Lightsabers.

But again, it's a grocery store. For a grocery store that is a HUGE selection.

Re: TPM wave

Yeah, I drove out to that HEB as well, kind of hoping that when at-at said "new waves" he meant the TPM wave. I was dissapointed to find out that it was just the AOTC wave that I already have had since July. No worries though... I did buy a box of RITZ crackers so it wasn't a total bust!

Re: TPM wave

There's still 5 new ships to be released in the titanium line before it goes on "hiatus" and that's one of them. Not out yet as far as I know.

Hopefully it won't be too difficult to find, but often those tail end waves are. I'd keep an eye on the titaniums forum here on Rebelscum.

Hiatus? Are the titaniums being cancelled for awhile?

Re: TPM wave

According to Hasbro, yes. No further plans for Titaniums after the next two waves. More details are in one of the threads in the Titaniums forum.

I was actually going to drop them due to cost earlier this year, but I figured since the line was ending I might as well have a complete set.

RotJ, CW, TPM online

FYI, the RotJ wave and newest Clone Wars wave as well as TPM wave are all up in their entirety on hasbrotoyshop.com right now. Use STARWARS10 code at check out to get 10% off. The little bit extra you spend on shipping would likely save you a lot of frustration over the next couple months.

Actually looking at the guest list, unless you really want to meet Hayden Pannetiere, I'd skip the $100 speedpass. Most autogaph room lines aren't that long, I think the longest one was only about 10 people and they move pretty fast.

OH! and the AT-TE is now at Ross for $39.99!
I think I got the last one at the Meyerland store, but keep an eye out.

Re: TPM wave

Yeah the Official Pix booth is there selling some real nice glossies, or you can bring your own stuff.

The only thing I didn't like about last year is a lot of the guests won't let you take pics at their table because they want you to pay an extra $20 for a professional photo.
I took one with Jewel Staite last year and it looks like a prom photo.

Picked up the Geonosis 2-packs today at the Target on Hwy 6 and Eldridge. Used the DPCI to get them from the back. The Target near Willobrook Mall had them as well(checked a scanner with the DPCI).

Oh, there's plenty of guys out there that far excede me in hunting. They just don't post their finds on forums. They like to put them on a different website.

Btw, Jorge, have you gotten your holo-Sidious chair yet?

Zosox, thanks for the info.

Found a couple of TPM wave & the Rebel Pilots Evolution set at a Wal-Mart in Luling, TX this morning.
Austin was fun. Now I can say I've been to a music festival with mud.
