Re: Attacktix Series 2

For those brave enough to Christmas shop today, I found a gray clone evolutions at Willowbrook Toys R Us. They hardly had any Star Wars left as everybody was grabbing everything though.

Also, the Disney Store in Willowbrook Mall has some very nice Chronicles of Narnia figures. Not the ones that were at TRU. These have the quality of the Lord of the Rings line. I bought the 4 main characters. They also have the White Witch and Aslan available.

Re: Attacktix Series 2

Thanks for the tip Ender.

I was looking for some good quality figures from Narnia. The Hasbro ones just don't cut it for me.
I remember the Incredibles figures from the Disney store were also better quality than the standard retail ones.

The only place I ventured to is Target in Meyerland. Actually saw a Tarkin, along with what was left of ML 11.

Re: Twins, Tarkin, Red Guards.

Haven't been to a Wal-Mart in a while but they look to still be stocking some.

Wal-Mart on Eldridge/1960 looks like its getting a well needed figure restock. At 6:00am this morning they had several cardboard displays filled the assortment with the Twins, Tarkin, and Red Guards. They were out for stocking but were not on any particular shelf yet.

Spudtrooper!

I had to go to TRU on Westheimer this afternoon to do some gift shopping. I knew it was going to be a madhouse, but I was suprised to find one Spudtrooper on the SW shelf, which was otherwise pretty empty.

And for you JLU collectors, I found individual carded versions of Supergirl & Steel at Meyer Park Wal-Mart.
They also have the Serenity DVD for $13.75

Re: Spudtrooper!

Did a mini-run this morning looking for the new Saga figures. I'm not collecting all of these, just picking up the ones I like.

Wal-Mart Copperfield- The toy section was very busy this morning. Lots of Marvel Legends Sentinel wave. The Star Wars stuff was in a basket and I didn't see any new boxes for restocking.

Wal-Mart Eldridge/1960- Still a few twins. A lone Tarkin and not much else. There are lots of the Clone Wars II DVD packs here. One of the few places that still have them.

Wal-Mart Spring Cypress/290- Nothing here. No new boxes.

Re: Lucas Clan

I Took a drive to Galveston and nothing at Walmart. At Target I got Jedi vs. Seperatist, Rebels vs. Empire and Clone Attack for $6.48 each.
They also had Lava figures and Shadowtroopers if anyone still needs them. Lava figures were clearanced at $9 something and Shadowtrooper is still full price.

Re: Lucas Clan

Pretty much all ROTS SW is on clearance at Targets. I picked up a Leia, Grevious, and Obi-Wan cupset for $9.08 a piece. Go to Tomball Target if you want clearance cupsets. They still have a few left.

The Target Jones/249 has Shadowtroopers for $9 something clearance. Left them as I have 4 already.

No sign of Saga anywhere. I haven't even seen the transformers at Wal-Mart (not that I'd want them).

Merry Christmas.

Saga

I am in Canyon Lake and found Han, Chewie, and Bib at the New Braunfels Target. I need the other three if anyone happens to see them.

Nice score! I need them all but if I find them I'll get what I can/what's left.


I hope everyone has a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Re: Saga

If you are still in the area there is a Clone Wars DVD figure set #2 ( the one with Cody) nestled in the electronics section among the CD and DVD multipacks by the DVDs and IPODs.

I'm in Houston for Monday- are there any places that may be good hunting Monday AM? I was able to find six different Saga figures at WM in New Braunfels ( I happened to meet a nice stocker who opened the cases for me... ), but I am still missing the final 4 basic figures.

Re: Saga

Copperfield Wal-Mart had 3 cases of Saga Wave 1 on the pegs this morning (6am). They only had 3 Leias but tons of Boba Fett. I picked up a Leia (Yoda holo) and Boba Fett (Boba Fett holo). Only 2 Leias left.

Eldridge/1960 Wal-Mart- No saga. Just some ROTS left overs. Lots of Grees and I saw at least one Tarkin. Twins are still there.

All set until Saga Wave 2.

Re: Saga

I found a set of the Saga figures at the Alvin Walmart this afternoon. I didn't see any extras but I'll pick'em up if I see them. They also have the Transformers.

Re: Saga

What's the price tag for the Saga figures?

I'm guessing they went up because of the hologram thingies.

Saw them today at the Willowbrook area Walmart and Target for $5.88 and $6.99 respectively. Also saw them at the Westview WM.

Any one have a list of the holos for this first saga wave?
Did you find the rest of them? A friend just called me and said the Texas City WM has quite a few of them.

I have no idea on the mini holo's. I'm just getting the figures and not worrying about the holo's.

Re: Saga

No Saga figures at Walmart on 59 and W.Airport - but found three transformers - 2 vaders and 1 obiwan. I picked up one of the vaders at $14.98 - seems a bit pricey and it looked flimsy. Left one each of vader and obi.

Re: Saga

The Baybrook Target had a handfull of Saga figs. Nothing to change my mind about not collecting them.
I did pick up the new V-Wing and Slave 1 Lego sets there. They also had the new A-Wing set as well.

Nothing at the Baybrook TRU.

As of about 12:30, Baybrook had a couple of Bibs and Baradas on the pegs, but that's all.

Re: Saga

Both TRU Westheimer & Wal-Mart on Dunvale had sparse Saga figures.
I got...
Leia w/ Luke holo
Han w/ Rebel Troop holo
Chewbacca w/ Han holo
Bib w/ Darth Vader holo
Barada w/ Darth Sidious holo
Boba Fett w/ Stormtrooper holo

No sign of the Transformers, but both stores had the battle packs.
And I noticed on Dunvale there was one Han w/ the holo figure busted out. I'm betting this will be a problem we'll be seeing more of. So be vigilant, guys, and notify the manager whenever possible.

No Saga figures at the Meyer Park Wal-Mart but they did have the Darth Vader Transformer. And they also have several Early Bird kits that haven't been there before.

Re: Saga

The Silver Lake (Pearland) Target reset their toy aisle and had about all of the new stuff. All of the Saga wave 1, Transformers, Choppers, new Force Battlers, all four new Lego sets, and the latest wave of Titanium vehicles including the large ARC Fighter and Droid Tri-Fighter. All I grabbed was the short packed Titanium white Tie Fighter.

Almeda and Fairmont Targets still are in the middle of the reset and just had some odds and ends on clearance.

Re: Saga

Went to Fairmont, Kemah, and Baybrook Targets and WM today. Most places had most new items (except action figures), so pickings should be easy. Also, I saw a Republic Gunship on one of the top sheles at Kemah WM, if anyone missed it from before...

Re: Saga

Thought I should report that the comic book shop in Willowbrook mall is going out of business and everything is 50% off. They have some nice Star Wars statues. I picked up a very cool Mustafar Anakin Skywalker Japanese Statue with lava base for $50 plus tax.

Re: Saga

Galleria Target had the full set of Saga figures but I picked up the last Chewie. They also had these funky looking Luke and Vader Choppers - the kind that you can pull back and they rev off. I thot it looked kinda ridiculous - esp Vader on the chopper. Also scored the Force Battler Jango Fett on clearance at $6.98 at the Target at Westchase.

Nope. I think its called DNA Comics. If I remember correctly, I think they have one in The Woodlands Mall too but I don't know if there closing.

Oh, last night I saw those SW Motorcycles at Spring Cypress/290 Wal-Mart. Don't like these at all.

Re: Saga

You're right, it's DNA Comics. However, I don't think they're going out of business. They have a big 50% off sale every year and clear out their statue stock.

Then again, I could be wrong.
