Re: New titaniums - Target

Finally found a Boba Fett Mighty Mugg at the Meyerland Target. Westheimer TRU had the Obi-Wan Starfighter w/Hyperspace ring.

And, most Barnes & Noble stores now have the big Star Wars Vault hardcover in the bargain section for $19.99
Kinda makes me wish I had waited a few months.

Re: My loose vintage set of 93 is complete!

Received a vintage Romba today from a fellow Scummer- finally my vintage loose collection of the first 92 + Yak Face is complete!!!

Rumbling from CenTex where 30+ ARC-170's were found on clearance at the San Marcos Target for $7.50 each... nothing like that around here.

Comic Packs

Found the Lt. Jundland & Deena Shan & the Mouse & Basso comic packs at the Wal-Mart in Rosenberg. Unfortunately, they didn't have the Republic Commando & Super Battle Droid pack. I've checked the Wal-Mart at Katy Mills & the one at I-10/Fry and neither of them had them yet.
The Wal-Mart at Katy Mills did have the Holo Vader, R2-B1, & 7th Fleet Trooper today at 12:30pm if anyone needs them.

Re: Comic Packs

Just wanted to let you guys know I found the 2008 Wave 1 today in Bryan, TX and last nite in Temple TX. So they may be coming soon. I found them at WM both times and at both stores they did not ring up. But they sold them to me anyway. One store had sets of the figure trays in the main aisle and the other store they were just on the regular pegs. Just an FYI......

Re: They\'re here in Houston

The El Dorado WM starting bringing out the cases of "Best of the Best" (?) which are the 12-pack trays of figures from '07 Wave 6+ thru '08 Wave 1 of the TAC.

They told me they would only stock out one tray because the pegs were full. But already on the pegs were an interesting mix of later figures; Holo Vaders, Tychos, 7th and Hawkbat Clones, Poncho Fetts, R2B1s, Clone Training Uniforms, McQuarrie Rebel Soldiers, and 1 McQuarrie Snowtrooper among others for the TAC coined figures, and for the '08 figures with stands there were the Mustafar Kenobi, Vader, and Panning Droids, Commander Gree, Tri-Droid, Po Nudo, and 2-1B. Absent were any Kashyyyk Troopers. They had the Rebel Vanguard Troopers in '08 packaging.

I bought one each of the '08 wave, save an extra Tri-Droid and Gree for openers. I bought the McSnowtrooper and two McRebel Soldiers. There were three more cases they would not open. At the WM north of Almeda-Genoa they had four cases that they were not stocking out because they were full.

Happy Hunting,

Tony

Re: They\'re here in Houston

Tony,

Did you have any trouble buying the new figures? I keep hearing they won't ring up at the register. One WM refused to sell them to a friend of mine yesterday because of this.

Re: They\'re here in Houston

Found Wave 1 at Fry Rd. Walmart. Got there around 6 AM and all the 41st Elite Clones were already gone. Picked up Gree and some Hawkbat Clones. Left everything else. They got 8 Best of the Best long boxes. The Gree figure rang up as 5.88 but the Hawkbat rang up 6.33. Katy Mills Walmart and the Westheimer Walmart near Dairy Ashford did not have anything new.

Re: They\'re here in Houston

The figures did not ring up, but four out of four employees had a can-do attitude toward getting them entered into inventory so they could sell them to me- they even let me have one of the long display boxes. They had to manually code and ring in every figure I got from the non-coined new wave.

Good Luck, Tony

2008 Wave 1

Found Wave 1 at the Wal-Mart on Hwy 6 & Westpark yesterday, but all they had was 1 set minus Po Nudo.
Hit up the Wal-Mart at Fry & I-10 this morning at 5:45am (barely missed ya Zosox!) and found Po Nudo along with all of the new Titanium ships (AT-OT, BG Battlestar Galactica Classic, Jabba's Desert Skiff, Kashyyyk Speeder Bike, Saesee Tiin's Jedi Starfighter W/ Hyperspace Ring).
At the time that I was there, they had the long boxes on the endcap of the action figure aisle. The Kashyyyk Trooper was ringing up as $5.88 but none of the other figures were. The cashier went ahead and rang them all up as $5.88.
Along with Wave 1, they had a mix from Series 7, 7.5, & 8 (Ewok 2-pack, Spirit of Anakin Skywalker, R2-D2 w/ Cargo Net, Darth Vader Hologram, Clone Trooper 7th Legion, Rebel Vanguard Battlefront II, Clone Trooper Clone Wars Hawkbat Squad, Clone Trooper Kamino Training).



At the Wal-Mart at Hwy 6 & Westpark yesterday, they had a ton of Hawkbat Squad Clone Troopers, both with or without the coin. They also had a mess load of the Jango Fetts from Wave 8.

Fyi, as of 11 today they still had at least two sets minus the Kashy trooper. Still haven't seen that one yet.

Re: 2008 Wave 1

Does anyone know if Hasbro is going to do all the coin figures with the stands now? I saw the 2-pack ewoks with the stand.

Re: 2008 wave 1

Those 12" Troops look great, GBU.
I was finally able to meet FedEx this afternoon to get my Palpatine/Sidious (Sideshow put an "in person signature required" on it for some reason). The likeness on the Sidious head sculpt will give you nightmares!

I finally scored the Comm. Keller & Boba Fett comic packs at Meyer Park Wal-Mart tonight. No sign of the '08 wave.

Wow! Those look great GBU!

Looks like everyone is scoring over there. Wave 8 hit here(FL) as well. I decided I wasn't going to buy every figure from now on. How many Anakins and Obi Wans, etc. do we really need!


I hope everybody is doing well.

Re: 2008 wave 1

Hey Huff! Hope you're keeping warm in Florida


We can get up to $50 back from Hasbro for buying our Star Wars figures! Here's the coupon online.
http://www.hasbro.com/playrewards/

The only catch is that your purchases must be between 2/1/08 and 3/23/08. When you get up to $151 or more, Hasbro will send you a $50 coupon good for more Hasbro stuff. YAY!

Re: 2008 wave 1

Hey guys,

Haven't posted in a while because I haven't seen anything new lately. However, I finally found something to report.


The Target at Memorial City Mall had all four of the Evolution sets.

On my side, more to the NW the Walmart off 290 near Cypress Rosehill had the newest Comic 2 packs. At least I think it's the newest packs because I haven't seen them yet. The two Imperial officers, a pair of disguised stormtroopers, and a Clone Commando and Super Battle Droid. If it's not the newest wave it's at least recent. Sorry I didn't catch the names on the 2 packs because I was in and out pretty quick & I don't follow the comics just the books.

Also, seen the Holo Vaders, Hawkbat trooper, Clone training figure, R2-B1 and TC-14 at the Walmart on Eldridge & 1960 and up on the 290 one as well.

Re: 2008 wave 1

Picked up the Greivous ship, AT-TP, & Obi's Blue Fighter yesterday at the Wal-Mart at Hwy 6 & 90 in Sugarland.
This morning, I went to the Wal-Mart at Fry & I-10 and they had Legends figures packed with the Clone Wars figure offer coupon. I attached it to show you what it looks like. You need 4 UPC from either Legends or Basic line figs and $6.99.

Stop by my restaurant to say hi if you have the chance- I work at the Texas Land & Cattle Steakhouse on IH-10 and Dairy Ashford.

It'd be nice to meet some Houston area collectors. Call ahead and ask for Tony 281-679-9900.
