Jedi Bebop, what stores are carrying the Lost figures? I'll definately keep my eye out.
GBU
I'm pretty sure TRU stores will carry them, since they had a big party for them in Times Square last month. Maybe Wal-Mart will, too.
I'm kinda hoping Hot Topic gets them in, since I have a friend at the Galleria store that can pull & hold figures for me.

I haven't seen the Mace Battallion since I got mine nearly a month ago. I'll keep an eye out for one.

Re: New Vehicles

TRU Westheimer tonight had the House of M box set, the Marvel Face-Offs (no variants), and a refresh of some older Saga figures (some Snowtroopers, Utapau Troops, Cody, etc)

Also keep track of those Rogue 2 Snowspeeders. I've heard they're beginning to get red tagged up to 50% off, along with Kit Fisto's Starfighter.

Mace\'s Battle Pack/ Plenty of Snowspeeders

If you're looking for the 50% off snowspeeders, you should head over to the Target on Eldrigde and 1960. I was there earlier this afternoon and counted 160 snowspeeders, all w/ the tag on them. Even the ones on the shelves up above.

And, they had a few of Mace's Battalion Battlepacks on one of the back shelves, for Jasond7.

Re: Mace\'s Battle Pack/ Plenty of Snowspeeders

Thanx everyone for the tips! I scored me a set on Saturday at the Target on I-10 and Fry. I appreciate the help! I too spotted the markdowns on the Snowspeeders ($14.98), but at the Target in the Richmond/Rosenberg area. Surprisingly, when I was at the Fry Rd Target, I didn't see even 1 Snowspeeder! Judging from the hundreds of Snowspeeders I have seen at various Targets, I imagine that some stores didn't get any and other stores must have gotten their shipments by mistake! I wish I would have waited instead of getting mine when they first came out!

Yeah I picked up those last week.
And I went ahead & ordered Shannon from Spawn.com's store.
I figure TRU is going to be a madhouse for the next few weeks.

I was there yesterday and it looked like they HAD a new stock of die cast Cars but of course the new ones were picked over. I saw the Woody/Buzz 2-pack on one of the cardbacks and they look really cool.
Makes me wish I had started collecting these last summer.


Meyerland Target has Kit's Starfighter at $13.50, but no more Snowspeeders.

Re: Wave 7 06 Starwars Saga is out

Hey, ace! Are the Wave 7 cases the same on the outside as the other ones we've seen this year, or are they labelled different - y'know, like the first Saga 1/E2 cases that hit, & some of the ROTS ones?

Re: Wave 7 06 Starwars Saga is out

Just to let everyone know, I was in Houston this past week, and picked up the clones (except holo Cody) from the Target connected to Memorial City Mall. They didn't ring up at the register, so she had to manually enter them in.

For those still looking for Endor, I saw them all at the Target on 10 just south of Katy Mills. This was at about 9:30 this morning. I took the last Endor Luke, but I saw all the rest, including both versions of the Endor trooper.

Good hunting!

Re: Wave 7 06 Starwars Saga is out

Hey all,
found wave 7 at Target in Beaumont. They put out at least two cases. As of noon 12/10 they still had multiples of everyone. These were so fresh that they apparenly weren't even in their system yet, so it took about twenty minutes at the checkout.

And if anyone runs across the ML15 variants and feels like helping a brother out....

Hey I need a favor, if any of you see the Lost action figures anywhere and can pick up a Shannon figure, then please let me know.
Bedrock City got in their shipment in today and she's the shortpacked one, so naturally they were sold out.
Thanks.
Try Suncoast. Mine put out series 1 (including Shannon) this week.

Re: Marvel Legend Face II - showing up at Wal-mart

I saw them at Westheimer TRU last night. I got the Punisher & War Machine set, 2 more of each were left.

Meyerland Target got the new vehicles in and they're $19.99.
They also had Marvel Icons series 3. Beast is pretty awesome!
Nothing new at Meyer Park Wal-Mart.

Nothing new on the Star Wars front but I did see the new Marvel Icons Beast and Spiderman at the Fairmont Target and TRU, both versions. The TRU had the Lost figures (no Shannon) as well as the Hatch box set.

Re: Marvel Legend Face II - showing up at Wal-mart

Just thought I'd share a recent experience....

My family and I just moved to a new place in NW Houston (across from the new Bridgeland community). I moved all my collectibles into one room and pretty much filled it up. I was a bit shocked by how much Star Wars crap...er...collectibles that I had accumulated over the years. Faced with limited storage space, I decided to weed out my collection. I was shocked again to find out how little some of the stuff I've kept for 10 years is worth. All the red card and green card POTF figures are worth less than new figures today. So I'm kind of faced with a dilemna....do I just give the figures to my two young boys (who already have a bazillion SW figures) or do I try to sell them on e-bay and get very little for my trouble? Or do I donate them to Toys For Tots and claim them as a charity tax write-off? Dunno.

But it's been a real eye opener for me as a collector. I encourage every collector to pull out their whole collection every once in a while as a reality check.
I think the only stuff I'm going to buy from here on out is stuff I'll crack open and let my boys play with.

Re: Marvel Legend Face II - showing up at Wal-mart

I'm debating the same options about unloading some stuff after our move. I'm definately going to open quite a bit more at some point.

Found two siege Clones and a nekid Kit Fisto at the Baybrook Target. Nothing else from that wave. Jedi Bebop, I did see a Lost Shannon at the Baybrook TRU but left it as you ordered yours already.

Re: Marvel Legend Face II - showing up at Wal-mart

Scott, I totally understand your situation as I'm going through some of the same stuff. I'm really trying to decide what to do with a lot of my figures I've had for years, but I know aren't worth much today. I've got way too many figures in bins. I went through all my stuff about a month ago and just couldn't believe all the stuff I have.

Huff, are you still looking for the Collector Tins? I see it in your sig, but I'm not sure if it's up to date as those seem to be hitting a lot around town now or at least my side of town.
I'll pick them up if you still don't have them.

Also, on a totally unrelated subject has anyone around town seen the nice Dallas Cowboys Santa hats? I have the red one with a blue star, but was looking for the blue and silver ones. Target and Walmart seem to be the place, but all I can find is Bucs, Rams, and Raiders hats.
I wasn't aware we had a big Tampa Bay Bucs following in Houston.

Re: MR Mini Sabers at Fry\'s(possibly)

Hey guys, I wanted to give a heads up to any Houston collectors that may still be collecting these. The Fry's Electronics up here in Chicago got a whole bunch of Master Replica mini sabers for $9.99 each. The ones up here were Yoda's, Anakin's, Darth Vader's, and Obi-Wan's(all from episode III). I managed to pick up my first two gold sabers ever(yoda and darth vader).
Maybe it'll be a chain wide thing, and I know that Houston now has 3 Fry's for shopping fun!
Hope everyone has a great holiday season! I finally get to come back home to H-Town for Christmas(albeit only for a week before I have to drive back up to Chicago again).

Re: Star Wars Unleashed Ultimate Battles

I've found some other weird things in my collection as I've been digging through it. A number of the green carded POTF figure bubbles have started to yellow. What's weird is that others in the exact same box look fine. They were all in the dark and in air conditioning for 10 years. I'm curious why some would yellow and some wouldn't. Maybe chemical composition of the plastic?

Also to my horror, a bubble for a 12-back Luke figure had dramatically yellowed. It, too, was in A/C and in the dark the entire time. I'm wondering what's going to go next.

Bryan, thanks but I'm good. I've seen them all over too but haven't had the extra $$$ to pick them up yet. I'll probably get them after Christmas.

Yeah, that's pretty common. The main ones that seem to be yellowing on me are the Green POTF2, FF's, and the Green Carded Commtech figures. I had about a case of Stormtroopers and R2's w/holo Leias, and I'd say half of them yellowed. I also, have them in cases in an AC'd room.

I'm also in the process of getting rid of alot of my stuff. Mainly my extra figures and most of my non-figure stuff. I'm out of room and ships and stuff take up too much room. I'll just focus on getting the figures.

I think the best way to sell all the common figures is to sell them in lots by series. I just sold a few lots and averaged about $3.50-$4.00/figure. Unless it's a rare fig you probably won't get what you paid for it but after a few lots it starts to add up. And sell the rare figures seperately. It'll kind of make up for the loss on common figures.

Re: Star Wars Unleashed Ultimate Battles

Thanks for keeping your eye out for those Cars, Jedi Bebop. The Baybrook TRU had two Shannon's today with pegs full of the Lost figures if you're keeping score.


On topic.... the Baybrook TRU had a few of the Comic Book sets #1 and #2. I decided to pass on them as they are just repaints of old sculpts and weren't impressive.

I got mine in the mail today. Nice figure but I hate they don't give you setup instructions for the backdrops.
Beats me how to put it together.


I can't wait for the comic book packs. I hope they hit the Westheimer store soon.

Re: Star Wars Unleashed Ultimate Battles

The Series III Icons were also at Meyerland Target yesterday.
Spider-Man looks good, but I've already got the 18" version.

And they must've gotten some new figures in because a few nights ago I found one lone CW Kit Fisto.
I snatched him up since I never found him when he was first released.
Oh, and my Sideshow Darth Maul came today. Awesome, awesome figure!
I guess the Sith Probes will ship later.

Re: Star Wars Unleashed Ultimate Battles

I have most of the things you listed, but sorry I'm not ready to part with them just yet.


But if anyone has a Clone Wars Saesee Tinn figure (the one w/ the broken horn) they want to get rid of, please PM me.
Too bad that wasn't one of the re-releases.
