Re: Target excl.

North Houston Fry's (on 45 N around beltway 8) still has a bunch of Anakin RoTS Mini sabers, and several of the Luke, Vader and Yoda FX-Sabers, if anyone is looking for them.

Re: Target excl.

Saw Rahm, Maris and Juno this morning at the San Filipe Target. Have them so I left them.

Has anyone seen Saga Legends 5 around Houston yet? Port Arthur and Killeen both had them last week according to their board sections.

Photo of New Falcon

Did everyone see that photo of the new & improved Millennium Falcon on the Rebelscum main page? That is totally sweet! I'm hoping that the back part of the ship also has a detachable roof so that we can see the entire inside of the Falcon! I'm thinking that Hasbro is listening to everyones cries for playsets and are incorporating them into the ships (same as the AT-TE). I keep wondering if the picture that we see is a fan-created dream, but I found a DPCI code at Target about 2 months ago for the Falcon priced at... hang on to your wallets... $149.99! No doubt, they'll still sell like hotcakes, I know I'll be getting mine. I noticed that if you type the code in now, the computer will not give a description, but 2 months ago it did... same with the AT-TE, at a price of $99.99, and the computer will not give a description, but once again, 2 months it did! I have a whole mess load of DPCI codes that I will update on the other thread soon, if anyone needs or wants them (codes for the Clone Wars figs, Legends Figs, Battle Rancor, regular Rancor, etc...)

Order 66 on shelf

Found the new Order 66 figures on shelf at the Target in Cypress today.

Btw, Jason, there's actually already a thread they keep updated for DPCI and UPC numbers over in the main TAC discussion forum:
DPCI thread

I'm sure they'll add one to the Legacy forum once that line gets going. You can find these by going to the pinned "Thread Index" in each discussion forum if they drift down a page or so. I usually keep that page loaded on my mobile. Handy stuff.

Re: Order 66 on shelf

I found the remnants of the Order 66 2 packs at the Copperfield Target. I almost missed them since they were by the trading cards on the middle shelf.

Still on the lookout for the 3/6.

Re: Order 66 on shelf

I picked up all six Order 66 sets at the Baybrook Target last night. They were up front on the shelves by the registers in front of the kids clothing area. Left at least one more complete set.

I've been checking out those pics since I saw them posted. The Falcon sure looks sweet!
I know $150 isn't cheap, but I know the AT AT and the Imperial Shuttle were not cheap the very 1st time around a long long time ago.


Just curious if anyone has any extras of the Force Unleashed wave? I've had zero luck in finding them and now I'm starting to think it might have passed me.

Re: Photo of New Falcon

I haven't come across them at all, either.
Hopefully they'll be out in much greater numbers by the time the game comes out.

And I noticed Bedrock City had a few new Saga Legends. The Shadow Troopers were gone but I went ahead & got Neyo.

They also had a few leftover Order 66 sets. The only one I missed was the Ratts Tyrell Jedi.

Re: Photo of New Falcon

Tonight at Meyer Park Wal-Mart I was suprised to see ALL the Indiana Jones merchandise out and on the shelves.
Not in boxes, but on actual pegs.

So I picked up what I could and headed to the cashier. They kept ringing up "Do Not Sell". But since there was a long line behind me and no manager in sight she rang them up manually and I was able to get what I picked out...




Everything was out, though.
The horse, the cargo truck, the deluxe figures, the 2-packs, even the Galactic Heroes style figures.
I wish I had gotten more but I guess I can wait another week.
So anyone in the area try your luck before they realize the mistake.

Re: Photo of New Falcon

I picked up two Carnor Jax and Kir Kanos comic packs at the Walmart in Deer Park. I didn't know that they were going to release them to the stores. I also saw a hole cart of Indy toys in boxes if anyone is interested.

I wish I had picked up 2 more Indy figures.
Then I would already have enough stickers to send off for the exclusive mail-away!

Re: Photo of New Falcon

I heard that the shadow & red would be Wal-mart exclusives (3-packs, 2 Shadows w/ Palpatine, 2 Reds w/Vader) and hit in July, & the blue would be sometime in September. Here's a pic of the Wal-mart exclusives followed by Hasbro's response in a Q & A about the blue one.
Rebelscum

Rebelscum: Another question on a mystery figure....in the latest issue of Star Wars Insider, there is a photo of a blue-striped Stormtrooper figure from The Force Unleashed. Wizards of the Coast's miniature game identifies this character as a "Felucian Stormtrooper Officer" and the Unleashed Battle Packs identify him as a "Stormtrooper Commander." While loose and carded photos have leaked (on a TAC cardback, no less), we've not heard anything official on this character. We understand the frequent delays of TFU has changed the release of some tie-ins, but it seems the bulk of Hasbro's line is still on target, except for this one. Can you shed any light on this figure, and where and when fans can acquire him?

Hasbro: This figure, a Stormtrooper Commander, will indeed be released as part of an upcoming promotion dealing with The Force Unleashed. As the game was delayed, so too was the promotion. Details have still yet to be announced or finalized, but the figure should be out around the time the game is released.

Re: Houston area trades?

Got most of the Force Unleashed wave minus the damaged Vader at Westheimer TRU (thanks to ace2006 for the assist).

Looks like Dunvale Wal-Mart was getting ready for the Indiana Jones on-sale. And some TRU stores around town are reportedly putting out the 6" Dark Knight figures early.
There's Batman, Joker, Thug & a chase unmasked Batman in the wave.

I saw quite a few Batman toys at the Walmart off El Dorado. Picked up the Crimson Empire 2 pack there also, glad I waited. Also saw wave 7 for GIJoe.

Re: Houston area trades?

The 6" Batman movie figures were plentiful at Dunvale Wal-Mart last night.
Plenty of Indy figures too but mostly from the "Raiders" wave. Meyer Park WM & Westheimer TRU have more of the "Crystal Skull" waves. Meyerland Target is the only place I've seen the Convoy Truck so far.
Has anyone seen Indy & the horse yet?
