I actually stopped in at a TRU in CT (exit 40 off I 95) and was AMAZED by their Star Wars section. They had EVERY new wave (legacy and clone wars) of the figures out on the pegs. The pegs were over flowing with NEW stuff. It looked great. They even had 5 cases up over head in the over stock. Why is NY so far behind???

If posting figures for trade here is frowned upon or against the rules, please advise and forgive.

I have a Concept Art Snow Trooper and the Ugnaught # 2 for trade, if anyone is interested. I REALLY REALLY REALLY looking for Snow Speeder Luke,

I'll meet up most places on Long Island/Queens, or use the post offices

Thanks

I am not really up to date with whats the newest wave or anything but Walmart in East Meadow and Westbury both had what looked like new clone wars figures. Padme, Assasin Droid, Matchstick and a few others.

Too funny! What do we think - someone returned an old figure knowing that the employees would most likely be too ignorant to notice (or just don't care), or do they really have no concept of stock rotation?

I think someone must have returned it and being it came up in the system, it might be legit, or else someone pulled a scam with the upc.

I'm thinking someone pulled a scam with the UPC. That figure is almost 15 years old. I don't think there's anyway it showed up in the system.

ESB wave hit Walmart in Riverhead 10 days ago. I offered the Concept Snowtrooper up for trade, or cost. Couldnt get rid of him, so I opened him...which Im not sure why..as I only collect movie figures. Not a bad figure. I DID however get the new Snowspeeder Luke with the help of a friend out of state.... Amazing figure. Simply Amazing.

Haven't seen ESB wave yet and I still need concept IG88 from the last wave. Every store I've been in for the last 2 weeks looks like a bomb hit, so I don't expect much.
Picked up the disney Jedi Training set with the padawans off ebay. Paid $35 w/shipping and it has the disney price sticker on it for 34.99, so pretty good deal!

4 hours shoveling a 5 car driveway. The plows left 7 feet unplowed after the end of my driveway! I felt like I was on Hoth the last 2 hrs, waiting for Solo to rescue me. Ug... tired now, lol.
