went by Target again today, more Slave Leia's, Greedo's and 2 Solo's, but all the Fetts were gone again
That was only for the pre-orders. They aren't due to ship until Oct/Nov time frame.I ordered one from them and so far they have YET to even send it to me. But I have seen reports of folks in Austin and else where finding them at the local Walgreens, I will never order anything from Walgreens again and IF I ever get my order I will be calling their customer service department and letting them know how I feel. I placed the order the day they made it public that they were taking orders for the Prototype Fett.
I don't make the news, Just reporting itThen what is the point of pre-ordering if those of us who did so are getting them AFTER the general public? Defeats the point of pre-ordering things. Palladium books has pulled this already with their Robotech Tactics game and their claim to need to get folks into it beyond the Kickstarter backers, and went ahead and offered the basic box set for the game, which is PART of the stuff promised FIRST to the backers, to dealers like Diamond and others who turned around and offered it to many of their clients/buyers at open houses etc...seen this since a friend who runs a mail order game/miniature business let me see the box set. Also Walgreens sent an email saying the item would be sent in two to five business days...that didn't say OCT/NOV. Crap like this sours folks on trusting companies.
I found the Emperor 6" wave at two different Walgreens, but aside from that, no. The Wally in Copperas Cove has the Han-Taun set if interested, pretty nice set, as I picked one up a few weeks back.Okay did some rounds today, yeah four Walmarts in the Killeen area and all have nothing. Target had some stuff but it was all the same pegwarmmers. TRU same thing. HEB same thing. Kmart waste of time. Sept. 1 should be better I hope. Has anyone found anything???
great find !Just checked the main Killeen Walmart - 2 cases each of waves 7 & 8. Grabbed the last C-3PO (only one I didn't order from HTS), but all the others were still there.
i was at TRU, Killeen Wally and SS Wally on midnight madness. Everything was gone within 5-10 minutes. TRU was pathetic, and Killeen Wally didn't even bother to stock, they just brought pallets out. I got my 3 Black Series figures but that was it. They'll all restock at some pointHoly cow...what happen? I mean I get it, it is Star Wars, but the amount of wiped out shelves? Never seen that before ever. Stan Schulter Wally bare shelves, TRU damn near bare bones pickings, Killeen Wally just as wiped out, Target yeah that was a mess, and Cove had stuff but not figures, not this afternoon.
When I asked at each store if they had more in the back to bring out, I got blank looks at both Killeen Wally Worlds and the same at Heights. TRU went and look and had they had some more Lego stuff but no figures for SW. Target never came back with an answer and Cove said they couldn't tell me yes or no via manger saying this to them. I did not check the PX on post. And Kmart, well the exit is blocked and I missed it.
But really how can damn near everything be gone? Was it so small an amount of 3.75in Figures? I could personally care less about the 6in or bigger figures, I don't collect those. I am just wondering what happen and who bought almost everything in the area....I am mainly after the new Stromtroopers and the Resistance Troopers, I collect armies, not into needing the main characters.
