Re: Collector Meeting

Found some wave 7 on the pegs at the Southport Target this morning. They had han, bariss, and the RFT. I picked up the Fleet Trooper and left the other two.

Re: Collector Meeting

Thanks for all the kind words guys, Although Matt deserves all the credit, that was some seriously good eats, and he was very generous. I will get him signed up on Rebelscum so he can be in the loop more.

Thanks to everyone who came out, we have a great community here in Indy so it is good for all of us to get together every now and again.

Couple of things that are coming up are the Kane County Toy Show October 23rd, in Chicago. And I think we are on pace for a fall meeting as well.

Thanks
Todd

TRU Y-Wing

The Y-Wing has landed at Toys-R-Us in Greenwood this morning. They had one case which contains X2 Y-Wings. I picked one up and helped out The Collector on the other. Boxes are not in perfect shape.

Other news on the South Side Target is starting the reset and has lots of new tags for new items: Republic Shuttle, two different Battle Packs, Ships, Blu-Ray figure sets, ect. The only thing new was the newer smaller Star Wars Transformers for $7.99 each everything else was empty spots. This is at the Southport Rd. Target store. The one on S. Meridian St. has not reset yet.

Other than that some good looking items at SDCC. Did anyone notice the Class 1 Obi-Wan and young Boba Fett are not shown? Wonder if they are canceled or will be exclusives later?

Looking for...

I'm trying to track down a (preferably) loose R2-KT droid? Anyone have any extras from the release a few years ago or know where I might be able to pick one up?

Also.. has anyone else been following SDCC this week and all the new pieces coming out this next year? All I can say is "I'm gonna need a bigger boat"... WOW

Re: Looking for...

Thanks Binks!

I'm pretty happy with all the stuff I've seen shown at the Con. Would like to see some more new stuff from hasbro's CW and TVC lines. Not much we haven't already seen....hopefully we'll see more tomorrow. Nice to see we finally get Veers from Gentle Giant and the Death Star Gunner is a nice suprise. New marvel stuff looks great as well. It's also getting harder for me to resist the Sideshow stuff.

Also for you Joe Collectors. I picked up the new Sky Striker at the Nora Target this morning. It was on the shelf. Glendale had them as well however they were still in the backroom.

Hope everyone is staying cool. This heat is awful. My AC went out Tuesday evening. It reached 90 plus degrees in the house before it was repaired last night. Best $400 I've ever spent.

Re: Looking for...

Southport Taget has the Republic Shuttle $69.99, Lots of Vintage (Barris, Ewok, RFT, ect) still no Wedge, The new sets of the 3-pack Vintage, the half masks (not helmets) of Clone and Grievous. Might have been more but to much to remember, The Collector can tell you since I saw him there and we got to talk.

Looking for the Blu-Ray Episode 2 set and the new Battle Packs. I am guessing the new wave of vehicles will be out any day as well.

Re: Celebration V

Hit the Castleton Target a little bit ago and picked up VC Jango (finally!) & ARC Commander // CW Bariss, Eeth & Riot Control Trooper.
Not sure if anyone else had been there before me but it was obvious they had just stocked a fresh case, maybe two.
They still have 2 of the new Special Action Figure collections left and a VC Bariss. Happy Hunting.

Re: Celebration V

Hey everyone, been a long while since I've posted in here but I do still read up on what's happening in town. Since I don't collect much Hasbro it was just pointed out to me that a wave with a few figures I want has come and gone, so if anyone has an extra Weequay Skiffguard or General Lando that you could let go, I would much apprecitate it.

Hey Randy!
Good to hear from you. The Beech Grove Walmart had several of each this morning. Let me know if you can't get over there and I'll swing by and snag them for you.
Thanks,

What's up fellow Hoosiers? I'm a long time collector, but just haven't gotten around to posting on Rebelscum. I've lurked around on the site for years and figured I'd finally post something, especially in finding the Indy threads.

What promted me to look for Indy specifically is a trend I've noticed on the west side (Avon/Plainfield). Sadly, we have some knucklehead out in this area bends the corners of the cards on any new wave that hits. I've noticed it both Wal Mart and Target in both Plainfield and Avon. I get the whole carded vs. opening issue, but why do something so childish?

Welcome to the Boards OutbackMatt and Bricker!

^^The card bender's reach goes beyond Avon/Plainfield. I routinely run across bent cards on the south and east sides of town as well. I'm pretty sure the Southport Target has video of someone bending the cards back when the covert ops clone/geonosian 2 packs first showed up but they wouldn't let me see the video. Still hoping to catch the person 'in the act' one of these days.

Re: Local finds

Looks like Target.com is starting to put the new stuff up on their site though most of it says OUT OF STOCK.

The same for the Wal-Mart and Meijers near me off of Kentucky Ave (Camby). The are a ton of figures that are bent, torn or just really beat up.

I found this at the Wal-Mart in Greenwood. I took this to the service desk and let them know it was tampered with. They ladies at the counter did not seem to care.

Re: Local finds

If anyone still needs the Clone Wars Commander Locke, they are $3.50 at K-Marts this week (50% off clearance toys).

Pendleton Pike had 6-8 as of last night. Most were on good cards. No other Star Wars clearances to be found.

SDCC...

FYI... I will be getting a small quantity of the GG Concept Snowtrooper & Captain America mini-bust from SDCC the first week of August in case anyone missed out on ordering them.

Prices are below what they were at the con or from GG.

Thanks!

This morning at the S. Meridian St (Greenwood) Target store I picked up the new Class 1 Y-Wing Scout Bomber with Warthog and Republic Scout Speeder with ARF Trooper for $5.08 each!!!

They did their reset and lots of new stuff on the shelfs. I even picked up the repack of figures in the Stop The Zillo Beast Battle Pack at regular price.

Re: Target = Clearance

I was just in the Southport Road Target this afternoon and they had a case of the Wave 7 Vintage figures out. The Bom Vindin card was in bad shape, but the rest looked good. Hopefully this will help someone out who is still looking for these!

Re: Target = Clearance

Thanks to Matt and Ben, I got calls from both of them within 20 min of each other that TRU in Castleton had the new Y wing.

I was able to score one on my way home, along with the Biker Scout DVD pack.

THanks

Re: Local finds

Ordered 2 VC figures from TRU online and when I opened the box the idiot that packed it had jammed the card down and then put that paper packing on top of it. Card was completely mangled....way to go TRU....off to TRU on lunch to return it....grrrrrrr.
Picked up CW Commander Colt - CW52 @ Castleton Target yesterday though!!

Re: Local finds

The Greenwood TRU has in stock X8 Y-Wings, the Seperatist Speeder with Geonosian, and the Stealth Operations Clone Trooper.

I picked up one of the Speeders with Geonosian and one Clone Trooper.

Saw The Collector there and he picked up some good things as well.

*It looks like only one Rebel Transport Speeder with Driver to three Seperatist Speeders with Geonosian per case.
I am still looking for the Rebel Transport Speeder.
