HTS.com now has the new Clone Wars vehicles, figures and the Big AT-AT up for sale. Most of the cool stuff is sold out

Is it just me, or is there a drought of figures going on everywhere? I feel like it's been 2 months since anyone's stocked anything.

I spotted one lone Anakin Starfighter in the new blue packaging at the Hawthorne TRU. I'm not so much in a rush as I assume these first few waves will hit hard, especially given the empty pegs at every single Target waiting for the reset.

This goes without saying, but - Frank and Son (at City of Industry) vendors have everything from all the new waves, including the AT-AT. Prices vary per vendor, but figures are in the $12-15 range.

Still cannot find any TLC EU figures. Did they only make a blip here and there? La Cienaga had the blue cards out- mostly re-releases. Did see IG-88...eh.

That blows. I was really looking forward to finding some in the wild
Anyhow kiddies, time for a report- La Cienaga TRU- 2 cloud cars, 1 snowspeeder. I'm unsure on picking up a snowspeeder as I love my POTF2 one with the sounds. The cloudcar is sweet, but at $27.99...I dunno. Any word if it's 24.99 at Target? If TRU does BOGOH I might buy into it.

Okely Dokely, my buddy picked up the Big AT-AT at the La Cienaga TRU. Eh, I think I'll wait for the vintage packaging. I did pick up the Pre Vizsla, cloud car, cloud car pilot and Dak Ralter there. Seems like the new LEGO sets are hitting shelves as well. Anakin in the Naboo skiff is there as well, but I really want the Mando speeder bike. That's it

Pre was up for sale at TRU.com. Anyone need stashing if I come across one?

I'm looking for the Mando bike too! Let me know if you spot an extra. Heads up- New Joes hit the TRU- the Snake Eyes actually looks pretty good. Joes are BOGO 1/2 off. Kul Teska was up on the pegs at La Cienaga TRU- spotted 2- $15 a pop- meh. Not that great looking of a figure. For the large figures, I dig the Vong the best.

The new Joes have weapons that are a bit more, say, proportional. The new Storm Shadow is a bit odd. Duke is okay. The HISS tank looks interesting. They really need to re-release a Skystriker. And the only thing you get for a $15 Kul Teska is a larger package, a TRU Exclusive sticker and a figure that could ahve been a bit more interesting. Hasbro did do a bang up job on TCW Aurra Sing.

saw the Teska today. Large figure. Saw some new Joe vehicles, but no figures. Saw new battle ops Bumblebee and many deluxe Thrusts. All at La Cienega TRU. Oh ya, they had vintage too, but the cards were all bent. Pretty badly in some cases. No fett & no cloud car pilot.

Don't know. Some db. Another collector i know said he saw those cards on the floor twice. Someone must've really hated them. Maybe they think they are TRU exclusive -lol

Stopped by Montebello TRU this afternoon and they just got done stocking the pegs. Plenty of vintage and CW revision packs. Saw the AT-AT and snowspeeder for the first time but the standard vehicles scanned for $27.99?!

Yeah, vehicles are now $27.99 at TRU. They are $24.99 at Target, which is having a sale so they are $20 now if you can even find them there. Also, the vintage cards are $7.99 at Target and $9.99 at TRU and the speeder/skiff packs are $2 cheaper at Target as well.

Stopped by La Cienega Target today. Lots of full pegs (all pristine cards -- no mystery damage. Nicely surprised to see the $7.99 price tag on the new VC. Picked up a great looking Hoth Leia.

ya TRU is stupid. They must think this new vintage line includes clamshells, but they don't. $10. Screw that. They should be $7 or lower at all stores. Not $8-10. And $25-28 vehicles?? gimme a break
