Re: Local finds...

You guys have got to be kidding me! Really? Anybody willing to go out and get me a Rancor and the Order 66 Anakin and Obi Wan sets if they're on clearance? Only if you have the time

That's a really good price on the rancor! Too bad I don't have any room for him.

Re: Local finds...

bigbadbantha asked me to post that he found the WM ex comic packs and the droid factory 2 packs at Wal-Mart in Avon. He said they had a bunch out on the floor and they were working on setting the display when he was there a little bit ago.

Re: Local finds...

The BG Wally is loaded with the DF & EU 2-packs as well. They also stocked a couple cases of the FU wave as well as the Fans choice final five if anyone still needs those.

E. Wash Target has plenty of Order 66 on clearance.
Add Southport Target to that as well.
Just got a call from a friend who found several complete sets at the Target in Plainfield. I'll see whats left after work.

I also saw tons of the Droid builder sets up at Wizard World but there was no way I was going to pay con prices for something that is just now hitting Walmarts.

Re: Local finds...

anyone know if any of the local ToysRus's will participate in the clone wars midnight madness? I'm guessing if any did, it'd be the Castleton location. And it's going to be friday night at midnight? Seems like they were in the middle of week in the past for the movie toy releases.

Re: Local finds...

Had some GREAT acquisitions today!!

Received in the mail- my Boba Fett French Medallion from the raffle that was held by mintinbox.net


DT comics in Greenwood- Koto IG-88 and Koto 4-LOM


TRU Greenwood- TF Universe (Classics 2.0) wave 1 deluxe figs Sunstreaker, Prowl, and Octane/Tankor. Also picked up TF Universe Legends class Starscream, Red Alert, and Onslaught.

They also had wave 1 of the Marvel Transformers (they were actually pretty nice looking) and the new set of TF Robot Heroes.

Needless to say, it was a pretty expensive day!

Awesome acquisitions Toyman!

Those Koto's will be mine


Speaking of expenses, I figured with my recent addiction to Gentle Giant, The remaining TAC stuff, and the upcoming midnight madness , I will equal my 2007 toy expenditures....With 5 months of the year left. Oh and 2007 wasn't a light year either.

Re: Local finds...

So is everyone going to be going to the midnight TRU opening? Are you going to Greenwood or Castleton? I personally will be going to Greenwood and am going to try and drag BigBadBantha down there too. I still have alot of "friends" in that store which was very helpful during the ROTS event
. I had no problem whatsoever getting everything on my list that night.

I figured maybe we can meet up at Hooters before heading over to TRU and then all head to Wal-Mart right down the street after TRU if everyone is not broke by then.

Count me in for Castleton! I was considering Lafayette, as I figured there'd be very few people there, but it turns out there's so little traffic at that store that they're not doing midnight madness at all. I'm just looking to get one of all the new figures, so I'll be happy to leave the vehicles to the rest of you.

Off the topic, at what store(s) are you all finding the Mygeeto BP? I'd like to snag one before everything resets in a few weeks.

Re: Local finds...

I had originally though I wouldn't be attending Midnight Madness this year, but with TRU's holo grievous (one of my lines of my collection are holo/spirits), I kinda have to go. But I think I'll be heading to the Terre Haute one instead. We'll see how busy they'll be!

I'll head to the Midnight Madness in Greenwood. Didnt plan on collecting the line, but it seems like a fun time to be had.

Re: Local finds...

I'll probably head to midnight madness with my nephew. It'll be his first one. Hopefully some 501st will be there since that's probably what he'd be most impressed by.
Either Greenwood or Castelton, maybe castleton since I am more familiar with that side of town.

Bloodfin Garrison of the 501st has been ask to "Troop" at the Castleton TRU. More stores may be added later but this is the only one that I have any sort of conformation on at this time.

Re: Local finds...

Made a run through Avon this morning. And I owe a big thanks to Olee for hooking me up with multiple figures I hadn't been able to track down.

The Avon Walmart still has full sets of the Droid Factory figures, and the exclusive comic packs. Target has Order 66 on Clearance for a little less than $5 each. Tons of those. The Lego Y-Wing is also on clearance there for $27+. Meijer had several AT-APs, but not much else worth mentioning. No Mygeeto BP either (thanks Collector for the advice - I'll keep checking these).

Re: Local finds...

Thanks for the tip. I picked up a set of the Droid Factory figures in Avon but I passed on the comic packs. I kind of like the Neyo repaint but $10.88 for one figure is kind of silly right now with gas costing what it does.

Re: Local finds...

I had that same thought. I've been selective about my figures this year (of course, it helps that releases are few and far between).

Who will be coming to Midnight Madness? My husband and I are giving it serious consideration.

Re: Local finds...

Noticed this morning the Beech Grove Wally raised their figure prices to $6.97 and the new comic packs to $11.88.


The DF sets were still $9.96.

I would imagine that Target and TRU will\already have increased as well.

Re: Local finds...

BigBadBantha just found CW Clone Trooper voice changer helmets at the Wal-Mart on Lafayette Road. He said they were still in the case but the lady stocking was getting ready to put them out.

Re: Local finds...

Wal-Mart on West Washington Street way out in Plainfield has three of the Clone Wars Clone Trooper helmet/voice changer. They only had the plain white version. The tag on the shelf is $29.98.

Target has the generic Clone Wars lightsabers.

No figures or exclusive figures found.

Re: Local finds...

Greenwood TRU received fresh stock of some of the earlier Mighty Muggs (Boba, Stormtrooper, etc) today if anyone is still looking for some of the earlier ones.

They also received the new GI Joe vehicle assortment and the newest wave of Joe figs as well as the TF animated Leader class Megatron and Bulkhead.

Re: Local finds...

Spotted a case of the new Clone Wars vehicles (Torent, Homing Spider Droid) at the Beech Grove Wally this morning however they would not sell me them because the case was marked with the "do not sell until 7/26" stamp......At least they weren't on the shelf so I could get shot down at the register.

Also spotted the 4' x 4' Clone Wars aisle display being rolled into the back room at the Greenwood Wally this morning. It was also marked with the do not sell before date stamp.

Re: Local finds...

Went to Michigan Rd. Wally and found all the new Clone Wars figs as well as Wave 2. Of all the figures I saw, I thought the black IG Droids looked the coolest. He had a blaster in each hand as well as a long rifle. The heavy gunner trooper looked cool, too.

Re: Local finds...

I got shot down at the West Wahington St. Wal-Mart. On a pallet they had the new Clone Wars Vehicles, Galactic Heroes, Clonetrooper Voice Helmet, Clone Wars Animated Figures, and Legacy Figures. I asked a stocker to open them up and he did, he told me to help myself. So I picked up One of each of the Spider Droid, V-19 Starfighter, and one of each of the action figures. When I got to the register they rang up NOT FOR SALE!!! The CSM came over and we had some words and she took everything away from me. I left unhappy. I stopped by there again today on my way home from the job site and the ships and helmets were on the shelf. I tried to pick up the Spider Droind and again the register said not for sale. So it looks like Wal-Mart has their computers set for not for sale.


The Target on West Washington St is pretty bare for Star Wars toys. Lots of items marked for clearance.

Re: Local finds...

Stopped in again at the Wal-Mart on West Washington St. There was a big pallet box, one of those things they put in the middle of an aisle. It said CW Blasters Asst and AT-TE
In big black letters it has printed on it PUT OUT IMMEDIATELY. IT did NOT have the red text that says July 26, 2008 on it. So maybe the blasters and AT-TE will ring up.

I asked a stocker if they would open it up and she said since it is an aisle display they will wait until the rest of the stock is put out first. So tonight on my way home I will stop by to see if they put it out or not.

Re: Local finds...

Thanks to Tiefi's tip I am now the proud owner of an AT-TE! They had set the modular display with the CW blasters and the AT-TE however the AT-TE did not ring up at the register. Once 2 managers got involved and after they checked the recall list, they sold it to me using a toy department price override. Mark 1 item off my list.
