Went by Monroe Wal-Mart this morning. Nothing new in the Star Wars section except for more VOTC Obi, Han, and Leia, and the OTC lightsabers on the highest shelf.

In the ML section, I saw 2 Blades and a Nick Furry. Don't know if you guys have these or even want them...but since I was looking I thought I'd mention it.

A new case of G.I Joe 3 packs w/ comic book were put out.
Got myself isuue #3.

One week left...hope they put out some NEW merchandise this weekend.

LOL...Start by practicing your best "raspy" sick voice or tell em you've got the squirts......


Target had the newst wave of Unleashed (Tusken, Bossk, Aayla) however the box they came in must have been sat on or kicked. Every one of them had a bent/creased card. Good for openers.

I've said it before and I'll say it again...Wal-Mart suxs!
Not only did they not have any new figs...they hadn't even put the dvd's on SALE ($47.99 sug retail). Hello...most anticipated DVD release IMO. Monroe Walmart was also sold out of the widescreen version in the dvd section( bet they had a display up front).


Target has it for $45 and they have plenty of widescreen versions. They also had the good business sense to put out a new case of figs. Lobot, Bespin Leia, Cloud Car Pilot, Wicket, Boba, etc.

Great site.
Your LOTR display is most impressive as well as your sword collection. Your Shinto era sword made me drool...


Are you going to post your star wars collection soon?

Awesome, I've been looking for Tusken and Bossk.

Anyone been by Target in Monroe? Is the Star Wars sale any good? I haven't been by in a while...I'll probably hit all the stores Saturday.

I went to Monroe Wal-Mart in hopes they would have the second wave of VOTC figures. My hopes were dashed when I discovered they had taken down the free-standing figure display and choked the regular peged section FULL of VOTC Leia, Luke Ben, and Han.

I've got a bad feeling about this.

With the bridge out in Columbia, and my workplace being on the other side of the Ouachita River, I decided to make a toy run today. What a bust.

Target- Their sale seems to be going good. In fact they have very little OTC or Saga figures left (yeah!!! time to re-stock). Plenty of Galactic heroes, and their AT-AT lego is only $69.99.

TRU- Looks like they restocked everyting OTC, but with little in the way of "new" for those who frequently check. Since the Y-Wing is scheduled to ship today from TRU.com...I have a feeling they may have this tomorrow or next week. They also had some older stuff...one hailfire droid and two geonosis fighters from the clone wars, and only one of my favorite collectible...The Darth Vader Talking Bank from '96.

Wal-Mart West Monore-Well it didn't take long for the DVD 3-pack to be marked down to $8. Seems they have priced marked reqular figures for $3.96 to beat target's sale, so if you can't find it at Target...this may be your place. They also have lots of Optimus Prime clearanced...but $50 is still to expensive for me.

Thak goodness I picked up my Deluxe Stormtrooper Bust from UPS or today would have been a total wash!


Hope this helps you out.

Sweet....How many swords from LOTR does this make in your collection?

Do they plan on making Sauron's mace, helm and gauntlets?

I wish I could branch out into other lines of collectibles but my SW habit is already too expensive.


Later...

P.S. Ammon
Please post any new finds you see today cause aint no way I'm going out in this crappy weather.

Its funny you should mention those 3 items from Sauron becuase those same thing are being put into what UC is calling the Sauron collection. His helm is already out his gauntlet(with the ring) will be out next and then his mace will come out. Here is a list of what I have.
Strides ranger sword and scabbard
Glamdring
Narsil
Anduril
Legolas's daggers and scabbards
Uruk-Hai scimitar
and Herugrim on its way.

Wow! Those swords and their dispay placks look awesome.
I want some too!!! Can the blades be sharpened or would that ruin the sword?

I read some blog about the Sauron collection but couldn't find any reference to it on the web. I knew you would know something about it. Thanks for the info.

With the lack of Star Wars stuff in the area...I bought the ROTK for my x-box and a new Drizzit novel by R.A. Salvatore. Now if I could only convince my wife to let me collect those swords!

Later....

Here is some info on the Sauron collection for you.

The first product in the Dark Lord Sauron collection and the ultimate in The Lord of the Rings collectibles, this authentically detailed helmet is a reproduction of the helmet prominently featured in The Fellowship of the Ring, presented by New Line Cinema. United Cutlery Brands, industry leader in fine movie reproductions, has meticulously recreated the actual prop helmet using the original movie prop molds. Close attention to detail is a top priority in every piece, down to the intaglio-etched surface and corroded metal coloring that precisely match the original movie prop. This actor's scale helmet is wearable and stands at an impressive 31 inches tall. It is crafted in steel-reinforced fiberglass-resin and features a genuine leather-lined interior. Each helmet is presented with a wood display stand adorned with The One Ring inscription and a brass medallion. This adult collectible is strictly limited to 3000 pieces worldwide and is individually serialized on a solid brass plate mounted on the inside of the helmet to ensure authenticity


The second product in the Dark Lord Sauron collection, the ultimate in The Lord of the Rings collectibles, is this authentically detailed gauntlet, a reproduction of the gauntlet prominently featured in The Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring, presented by New Line Cinema. United Cutlery Brands, industry leader in fine movie reproductions, has meticulously recreated the actual prop, making close attention to detail a priority in every piece. This actor’s scale gauntlet is wearable and is crafted with antiqued iron parts featuring an intaglio surfacing and a genuine leather-lined interior that precisely matches the original movie prop, which has more than 30 moving pieces. The index finger bears the familiar One Ring that features a 24-K gold plated finish and engraved inscription. Each gauntlet is presented with a glass dome and wood display stand also adorned with The One Ring inscription and a brass medallion.

I forgot to answer your other question. As far as I know the swords could be sharpened. But it would be usless as these swords are not battle ready and most are not even full tang. Most of them are half tang. And it would ruin any future value. If you want a functional LOTR sword United is making a line called the museum(sp?) collection. Those swords will all be full tang and have tempered toledo spring steel blades. The downside is that there is so much work that has to be put into these that the cost will be double or even more what the current swords cost.

West Monroe Wal-Mart for some reason has Marvel Legends 1 and 2 on the pegs. Cap. America, Human Torch, Ripped Shirt Hulk, and The Thing.

Just got my Darth Vader voice changer from Amazon.com.
Not sure if TRU has this yet... but this is one awesome toy/helmet. You should check it out.

I'm going to go hide under the carport and scare the sh** out of the wife.

Well I never found those Marvel Legends wave 1 figures, but WM Wal-Mart sure did have waves 6 and 7 last night. A TON of brown suit Wolverines, plenty of Cables, a few of Juggernaut and Movie Punisher, and the big surprise was one Ghost Rider, one Iron Man, and a couple of Weapon X Wolverines. Looks like Wal-Mart means to really sell these suckers this holiday season, because there was a ton of them.
