jhutt75 and HuffT: which of you guys were at Kemah Target the most recently? I'm after the Attack on Coruscant Battle Pack, but ya'll have conflicting reports for today. Should I stop by on my way home today, or not...?

Thanks!

Bly and Gree pairs

Came across two pairs of Bly and Gree at Memorial City Mall Target about an hour ago. I stashed them in two seperate spots in case any of you need them. Check behind FF Fantasticars and on the end of the next aisle behind the talking Tonka truck. They also had some #58 wookies and a couple green #33s.

Re: Bly and Gree pairs

Thanks for the tip Elmeaux, I'll be looking for those tonight!

Meanwhile I found a Wookiee Commando & a Sith eyed Anakin at Meyerland Target early this morning.
TRU on Westheimer had nothing new, except for this cool looking King Kong doll that roars when you mash his chest.
Can't pass that up!

Re: Bly and Gree pairs

Geckolowe, when did you check? I got there about 5:00 pm and had the guy working in toys pull one from the back using the DPCI number (087-06-0228) when I found the shelf empty. He acted as if there were more. I didn't ask for extras as he was a little hesitant about getting mine. You may want to check back tomorrow and ask.

Re: Bly and Gree pairs

Finally saw (and picked up) sith eyes Anakin at the Jones/1960 Target this morning. They had just had their morning pep rally thing and were excited, asking people if they needed help. So I figured "what the hey" and gave them the Lava Duo dcpi# since I knew they were in the stock room. So I got those two as well. And I picked up my first Unleashed -- couldn't pass up Vader at clearance price.

I just got back and did what GBU did. I'm not sure if they have more as I didn't want to press my luck. The spots were ramsacked.

Re: Bly and Gree pairs

Found the ROTS widevision cards at the Baybrook Target. They had one each of the Wookie, Grevious body guard, and Nemoidian commander repaints. Ran the DCPI numbers of the exclusives out of interest and they had none in stock. Baybrook TRU and El Dorado Wal Mart had nothing new.

Re: Bly and Gree pairs

vdubbin, which Borders did you get the FX saber from (and did they have more)? I was thinking of getting one but didn't want to drive all over town to find it.

Luke lightsaber

Is the MR Luke FX lightsaber a Border's exclusive? How much was it? vdubbin - did you get 20% off with the coupon or was it 10% for electronics? Trying (unsuccessfully) to watch my budget!

Dropped by Target at Jones/249 today during lunch - only saw couple of wookie commanders and nada else new. Unleashed marked down to $7.49, but only Obiwans and Asajj left. Couldn't check the DCPI's becoz the scanners were down.

Re: Luke lightsaber

Yes it is a Borders exclusive. I got 20% off, but some are saying that they get 10 or 15% off. Total was 103 and change. Supposedly 25,000 made shipped to Borders in 3 different shipments. This is the new l.e.d. version. Return is mispelled on the box.

I've got a friend that's been hitting Sam's daily and still no sign of them. Should be soon though.

Re: Sam\'s exclusive ARC-170 Fighters....

Yeah I picked up the Luke saber at the Meyerland Borders, with the 20% coupon. Really nice!

Oh, and my Early Bird kit arrived this afternoon. I sent away for mine about 2 weeks after the April 2nd sale, although I heard Hasbro's just filling the orders at random.

Re: Sam\'s exclusive ARC-170 Fighters....

My wife found the Target Exclusive Darth Vader/Anakin at the new Target at Cutten and 1960. They apparently didn't have any Obi-Wan Exclusives or Clone Trooper Exclusives. They also had one of the clone battle packs (the set of clones in the Gunship) and the ROTJ battle pack. She was telling me this over the phone, so I don't know what else was there. In any acse, they're well stocked at the moment. Anyone know where I can find a picture of the ROTJ FX lightsaber from Borders? I didn't know they were exclusive!

I picked mine up Saturday at Borders on Westheimer. Go to their webpage and do a store location search and call before you go there. That's what I did and I had no problem getting help and finding one. The Borders also had the Vader saber as well. It was $99 before taxes without any coupon.

This one is far superior to the original Luke that had a teal blade and a flawed EL sheet. This one is a bright green and the sound is excellent.

Also, if you're looking for the best one imo, Mace's saber, Gamestop put them on sale yesterday for $119.00 and will be getting the Vader and Anakin one's back in in the next few weeks for $99.

k-mart

Are there any k-marts still in the Houston area or do I have to go to ebay for the JTA?

Unfortunately, they've all been closed down in Houston. I think the closest one is in Killeen, TX. I'm also trying to get a JTA w/o going to ebay. Try going to the classifieds here on RS.

Thanks vdubbin. I might try to get one then, hopefully will get 20% off. I shall probably sell one of the two Anakin FXs that I bot long time ago to offset the cost

I don't collect these but I like to check them out at the stores and I know some of you do. I haven't seen these before but the Deerpark Walmart has a whole endcap of the Sentinel Wave which includes Mystique, Omega Red, Black Panther, Spider Man, etc.

I was told if it is already on 20% off you cannot get an additional discount. Last time that did work for many people, but not this time.

Yes that is correct the one on 59 in Stafford it rang up 119.00 that why I got to use the coupon.

I went there late in the afternoon. Surprisingly, they still have a clone battle pack. They also have tons of the Plo Koons Jedi Fighter. Not much on basic figures this late in the day unless you need an army of AT-RT Drivers or #50 Anakins. No Lava figures, they must have sold out.

TRU has some of the new marvel legends figures (regular Cyclops and others). Chronicles of Narnia stuff is starting to hit. And theres a green clone commander/AT-RT Drivers as well.

Re: Sam\'s exclusive ARC-170 Fighters....

Wal-Mart on Post Oak had a whole shelf full of Marvel Legends 10, even Mr. Sinister & Mystique. And all the Evolutions sets (except for the 2nd Clone pack).

No exclusives yet at the Target in Meyerland. I'm checking there everyday before & after work.

Re: Target Exclusives

The Humble Target reset the toy section with an end cap full of the exclusives (except shadow trooper) but no final 12 figs. The Fairmont Target had the same reset but only had the shelf tags for the exclusives, no product.

I got my Early Bird sets today. I'm going after the FX Saber tomorrow afternoon. Thanks for the info Vdubbin.

Re: Luke lightsaber

Thanks vdubbin & Darth Bryan! I got the Luke lightsaber from the 59 Borders - it did ring up $119, but I got 20% off that - so exactly as you said...about $103 after tax. The guy said they got three boxes more of the Lukes in today, erm in the "cage". They also had like 4 of the Anakin and 3 of the Vader ones in the display stand in front of the cashier.
