Somebody just mentioned to me a toy store in Plainfield across from Walmart carrying some vintage SW toys and a ton of modern stuff that's been open for several months. Any west-siders familiar with this store? Is it worth visiting?

Thanks...and happy hunting...
It's called AP Toys and, yes, it is well worth a visit. Excellent selection and good prices, too.

Re: Indy area

Brownsburg Wal*Mart had the same overstocked saga pegs from last time, plus one Sith Infiltrator with a bent-up box.

Eastside TRU had nothing new, but four bantha packs that were all tan.

Re: Indy area

Thanks for the info on AP Toys. I didn't want to drive from Castleton if it was going to be a bust!

In other news...Nora Target had one Sith Infiltrator but I had to nab it for myself. Not much else to report.

Re: Indy area

I also agree that AP Toys is well worth the trip. The guys that own it are great, and the prices are more than fair. You won't be disappointed.

A quick Avon update today. I snagged a Death Star Trooper at Target. Beyond that, they had a ton of Obi-Wans and R2's, as well as a Galactic Marine that I left. No V-Wings or Infiltrators. Order 66 are in the toy area now, but not clearanced yet.

Avon Walmart is just about back to having less than nothing. No TAC figures. They've still got plenty of Hammerheads, and a few Endor figures left. They had a V-Wing and a couple Infiltrators the other day, all with really beat up boxes, but those are all gone now. No comic 2-packs whatsoever. A week or two ago they had tons of the first wave of comic packs. I didn't think they would ever move them all. Does anyone know if they clearanced those, or simply sold through them?

Re: Red Banthas Found

They didn't have anything there when I got there around 7 PM. No VTACs and a very limited number of wave 2 figures.

4 Banthas, no reds. No new comic 2-packs.

E. Washington St. Target had nothing new either.

Re: Red Banthas Found

East washington K-Mart had the ROTS version of the darth vader figure case for around 18 dollars back in toy clearance. It's more than what I wanted to pay but nephew wants one and it's been off the shelves for ages so couldn't be too picky, it was this or ebay.

and Fry's electronic store on northside sells star wars toys. I was able to get a Battlestar galactica colonial one titanium for 2.90, I was on the fence on that ship but couldn't pass it up for that price. They also had a lot of the 4 figure tin sets and saga figures.

Re: Red Banthas Found

On my lunch I went to Toys-R-Us on the Eastside I also did not see any comic book packs, they had some red bantha sets, no vintage, and very few new figures.

I then checked the Toys-R-Us in Greenwood last night. They had many wave one and two figures, red bantha sets, no comic book packs and no vintage.

Re: Red Banthas Found

Figures! I picked up an Anakin/Airborne Trooper at the E.Washington St Target yesterday for full price.
And as for that Eastside TRU...I hate them. I was just there yesterday!

Anyway, I got my BBTS order today. My wave 2 is complete.

Re: Red Banthas Found

OK late posting but it may help someone out.
The Meijers on west 38th st. has the Luke & R2-D2 and the Vos & V Grahark comic book packs. They also have one V-Wing and one Darth Maul Sith Infiltrator as of 8am this morning.

The Target on the same street, the DPCI #'s said non in stock but a stocker asked me what I was looking for. He said they have a truck later today and to check back on Sunday.

Vintage at Target

The Target on Southport Road and I65 have the Vinatge figures. I picked up one of each this morning.





As soon as I got home I opened them up. All that I can say is that these figures are getting better and better all the time.

Re: Vintage at TRU

On a whim decided to check Noblesville Meijer and they had the new comic packs. I grabbed Obi/ARC, but left the other two. No TAC wave, but they did have one V-Wing.

Did not get a chance to post yesterday, but Castleton ToysRus has no VTAC in stock but they did have a peg set up for them. They had Han/Luke Wave 2 only, no comic packs. Several V-Wings and Infiltrators.

Re: store report

I found the Obi/Alpha and the Vos/Grahrk comic packs at the 38th St. Target. A friend of mine that works there told me that someone had returned them and a set from Wave 1 (the Vader one I believe) on Tuesday. I didn't see the Luke/R2 pack.

Re: store report

AP Collectibles is across the street from the more western end of the new Walmart store in Plainfield. Almost down as far as the Long John Silvers, but not quite. Look on the north side of 40 down there, for some rich blue awnings on a few small connected shops with a small parking lot out in front of them. I believe the awning has white lettering on it now with the stores name. Hope that's specific enough.

Fathers Day 2-pack at Wal-Mart

The AVON Wal-Mart has five boxes of six of the Father's Day 2-pack for $9.98 each.

The Target down the street has lots of wave 2 figures and I picked up a lone Biggs Darklighter from Wave 3. He has straight legs with standard POTF2 articulation and lots of articulation on his arms. No other Wave 3 figs found. I asked a stocker and he did a location scan. They have no more locations.

Re: Fathers Day 2-pack at Wal-Mart

I was in the area and hit the Castleton Target today, hoping to score a set of the VTAC. All that was left was two Bossk's, of which I took one. They also had one full set of the new comic packs, and I left the Vos/Villy as I already had it. Not much else beyond that, though it looks like they may be getting ready there for some type of reset? Castleton TRU had jack-squatt, although there were a couple Endor AT-ATs if anyone is still looking for one of those. No Banthas, and no VTAC. I also checked the KB in the mall, which had some nice figures I was looking for this time last year.

I also hit the Avon Target on the way home tonight. Too bad I missed that Wave 3 figure, but there are several Galactic Marines and Airborne Troopers if anyone needs some of those still.

On a completely separate topic, I'm looking for a Gingerbread Man and Pussenboots from the McDonalds Shrek figure line. (I swear, they're for the girlfriend) If anyone scores those for me still in the bag, I'll happily meet up with you and pay you cash for them.

East side TRU had a few of the common wave 1 and 2 30th wave, not much else besides a bunch of AT-ATs.

Re: Wave 3

Picked up the lone Wave 3 Luke and Stormtrooper figures at the Walmart across the street from the B&N in Carmel. I had a few mins. before I had to suit up for the Karen Traviss book signing and I figured I might as well look. They still had about 5 Wave 3 Vaders there when I left last night.
