BTW, went to Medford Target yesterday and they had nothing.
scored wave 5 at target in brooklyn today!
In the recent acquisitions thread you said it was at TRU...which one was it?

If it was Target, question one...what are you doin' invading my store?


Question two...how many cases were put out? I went there yesterday and the pegs mostly had Legends and Yarnas.
my bad, i meant toys r us. in bayridge. Ive been to so many stores today that it becomes repetitive!
ha, it's all good...I'm sure we all know the feeling, especially after hunting a handful (or two) of stores in a row...

on a side note, has anyone come across the Mezco Hellboy 2 Mr.Wink (the 8" figure, not the smaller one)? I've only seen it once at said Brooklyn TRU.

Ritter with the hook up again! You're THE MAN!

I saw wave 5 on Monday at Setauket WM. No Space Stormie but they had the rest. It's been busy so I haven't had time to report.

I was going through extra stuff and I have a ton of extra figures, an extra 12" han and Luke in Stormtrooper from K-B toys, an extra 12" Chewbacca from K-B toys and an extra power of the jedi B-Wing Fighter (w/sullustan pilot) if anyone is interested let me know. Everything is still in the package/box. I can meet up with you guys on the Island.

Thanks,
Keith

Did a big ol' toy run today - 3 wallys, 2 targets & a TRU and found squat. Saw the leftovers for the TLC wave 5 - the repacks with new droid parts - at Middle Island wally, and I finally broke down & bought the HttE comic pack with Thrawn & Karde. Starting to see more of the wave 4 CW, but light on the Padme & Goldies.

TRU in LG & Target/WM in Setauket - nothing new. Just price increases at Target & WM. It's been a LONG time since TRU had better prices. Too bad they never got new stock after the holidays. Still the same figures that they had before Christmas, lol.

I think TRU's are a waste of time to go to.

Went to Target in Medford looking for Snowtroopers, but they didn't have anything, which I'm glad because I really don't have that much money.
I think they haven't restocked their shelves since they got in CW4.

Scored the new comic packs at Holbrook TRU today! (Sharad Hett/Luke/Borsk). I'm surprised that TRU is getting the new stuff in. They also had remnants of CW4 and the SL wave with the snowtrooper, but no snowtrooper.

Hopefully this remains a consistent thing.

Scored Legacy wave 5 at the Centereach wally. As of 930, they also had all of the new comic packs and the new wave of Legends with the Snowtrooper - I think I saw 3, but don't hold me to it.

Just got back from Centereach WM. I got all the new comic packs. I was excited to see a worker return a Snowtrooper along with a TAC Tattooine Luke back to the pegs....until I got a closer look. Both were old non-articulated figs put back in the updated packaging and returned. I brought them to the Mexican girl who had returned them to the pegs, but she had no clue what I was talking about...so I brought them to customer service, where they seemed to think I was only out to get a discount. Anyway, they're probably back on the pegs already, so take a close look before grabbing a Snowtrooper there and running out the door!

Me and a friend hit Holbrook TRU, Target, and Walmart, but found nothing at all. It seems all Walmarts have the comic pack exclusives now.

Islandia Wal-Mart had the exclusive comic packs on a 4-way display in front of the toy section. It seems like they had a lot, but usually their exclusives sell out and you never see them again.
