At the TRU near Smithaven Mall, they were putting out a ton of Trek toys. Gotta say, the 6" figures look pretty cool. Not a fan of the packaging, but some of the face sculpts are very good! And if you into it at all, check out the 12" (or whatever size) young Spock - the likeness is better than some Sideshow toys. It looks like Sylar dressing up for Halloween! I may have to adjust my toy budget slightly . . .

What was the price point for the 6" figures at Wally? Its $9.99 at TRU.

Yeah, I picked up a few of the 6 inch Star Trek figs. The 3.75 inch ones look too small (even compared to SW or GI Joe) plus the paint jobs mostly looked horrible.

I agree. Same with the new marvel figures, most of the sculpts and paint jobs and even scale just aren't working yet. The Punisher's head looks like it's 2 sizes too big for the body.


Hey, if anyone sees a DC Universe Hawkman (not the little figures), I'd appreciate a heads up, thanks.

The ESB wave has been found in California, so the hunt begins anew! I am STILL searching for a CW Jar Jar & Kit Fisto, so if anyone sees them anywhere, stash em & PM me! Thanks!

Holbrook TRU had some 6" figures, didn't see if there were any of them though.

I went to TRU in Bayshore today. They didn't have anything new, but they did have Clone Wars figures on tri-lingual cards. They were all figures from wave 1 and they came with some kind of booklet in the package. I'm an opener so the package doesn't matter to me though. They also had the new Trek and Terminator figures too. No 3 3/4 Uhura or Nero. Or 6" Uhura. I'm not sure about 6" pike though. Tomorrow, I'm going on a toy run, so I'll hide those 2 trek figures for you if I see them, D. Buff. I'll also keep an eye out for CW wave 5 and do the same.

Don't forget Legacy wave 5!

Probably not, but it was on really early in the morning too. I think I saw A New Hope on at 3 AM.

Man, anybody been to the centereach Wally in a while. Its kinda depressing! They have 8 figures hanging on the pegs - 4 Yarnas, 3 Brehas, and a Brainiac (I just cannot bring myself to say "Pons Limbic" and mean it) - and those 8 have been there for about 2 weeks. Not a single CW figure to be seen. Now, I am trying to be positive and tell myself that it means when they get new figs, the pegs will be full of Legacy 5 & CW 4. But its just sad to walk in there now.

Anyway, nothing new at the Stony Brook Target either. I'll try some more later.

Womder if they are getting ready for a reset?

They have a bunch in Setauket, mostly Legacy 4 (ANH wave). They have a very organized person working the pegs in toys at that wally - last time I was there, the figures were actually neat! Each peg had the same figure! Tons of all of wave 4, but that was 3 days ago.

Hopefully, all that space in wallys means a ton of the new figs to fill those pegs.

And I saw in the TLC boards that people in CA are finding the bew BPs. Keep those eyes out!

they actually shrank the star wars section, practically cut it in half. could be a sign of bad things to come.
