Re: Banthas and Wave 2

Saw both versions of the Bantha sets at Florence Toys R US Thursday. Got lucky today and found the Quinlan Vos and Luke Comic packs (no Obi-Wan; bummer) at Johnny's Toys in Latonia.

Re: Banthas and Wave 2

And even more goodness today. Found a V-Wing at Toys R Us Kenwood but no Sith Infiltrator. Hoepfully these will star to hit throughout the area...

Re: Banthas and Wave 2

I saw the V-Wing at Fields Ertel Target today. I found 1 Sith Infiltrator there, as well. The box was a little crushed, but it doesn't matter if you are opening it anyway!

Re: Banthas and Wave 2

Hope I'm clear enough in my descriptions...

I was down on Madison off of 71 checking out King Arthur's Toys. If anyone's sitll looking for TAC Airborne Troopers, they had three out there for $9 each.

I went to that Target just off Madison, but they didn't have anything. Also stopped by the TRU off of 71 by the Parisian mall. Saw 2 Han Solos and 1 Luke from wave 2, but nothing else. Some wave 1 comic packs, and the usual Artoos, Maces, and Obi-Wans from TAC wave 1.

And I'm sure it goes without saying, but the Kay-Bee in the mall was beyond useless. They're running a 2 for $10 sale on SW figures, but it's all old Saga stuff. Hell, I saw a Boushh Leia there.

Re: Cincy Hunting

Ran down the TRU-Mart-Target trio down 27/Codrain (I know I didn't get that right...). Nothing to report. Looks like the TRU there restocked with TAC Wave 1. Didn't even see shelf space at Target or Wal-Mart for the comic packs.

Thanks for the tip. I ran up there over lunch (about 12:30). No McFetts left, I took a Biggs (2 remaining). There were still about 4-5 each of the Death Star Troopers, Hans and Lukes, and 2-3 honor guards.

Re: Wave 2

Did a little driving around today. Went to the TRU by Eastgate mall. Wave 2 was partly there. I saw a Biggs, a couple Lukes and Hans, but that's it. Also ran to the Mart and Target just north of there in (I think) Milford. Nothing at either of them. (Though as a Gil Thorp reader, I find that very funny, and wonder if there's an actual Milford High.)

There is a Milford High School. Pretty good in baseball, if I recall.
Well, I hope so, with Clambake Yancy giving them tips.

Any wave 2 comic packs were outta the Eastgate TRU by the time I got there. They had several of wave 1, but no Vos/Villi or Kenobi/Alpha sets.

Re: Wave 2

Found Wave 2 in semi-abundance at Target in Florence. They also had a Sith Infiltrator and V-wing left as of 3pm today. Only 1 Order 66 set left at the 6.98 markdown price. Toys R US did not have anything new (no comic packs or VOTC.)

Re: walmart has new stuff

We may have gone to the same 'Mart, then. I'm sorry I can't be more specific, but I went to a Target and Wal-Mart off of 75, just south of where it intersects 275 by the airport in Kentucky. Nothing of note at the Target, but the Wal-Mart had 3 or 4 sets of the wave 2 comic packs.

I actually almost didn't go to the Wal-Mart, because I was running late, but I stopped anyway. Glad I did!

Back in Austin, so good hunting to all you Cincy/Tristate 'Scummers!

PS: Tried to find Milford High, but I got lost in the search. Though it was fun driving through downtown Milford.

Johnny's Toys in LAtonia has been getting these in regularly over the past few weeks. I was able to get the Obi Wan pack and an Extra Quinlan pack last night. There were still 1 Quinlan and 2 Luke packs left.

Re: Comic Pack Wave 2

Picked a couple of more ST at target. Its a little hard to find an associate that does not give you the "street date" crap.
Remeber kids if you buy SW at target what scans is the dpci. Meaning if you buy Snowtrooper at $11.99 you can return a the $9.99 bossk you bought at trus to target with the ST receipt.

PS.. if you have a moral or religious issue with that...Im sorry for you.

No moral or religious issues here, especially when it comes to retail giants. It's us against them...

VTSC and Wave 3

The VTSC figures are out in full force (no pun intended). I've seen them at 4 Targets in Cincinnati (Tri-County, Fields Ertel, Ridge and Eastgate) and one Wal*Mart (Fields Ertel) within the last day. Of course, didn't see any Hoth Stormtroopers, but that goes with the territory. Haven't seen but the Luke from Wave 3, but I'm a patient man. At least most of the time . . . .

Re: VTSC and Wave 3

Found Wave 3 en force at the local Johnny's this past Sunday. Tonite I found the Luke/Darth Vader Father's day pack at ft Wright Wal-mart (located on the Aisle NEXT to the regular figures...) Meijers in Cold Springs still has a V-Wing or 2 in stock.

Wave 3

Apparently nobody wants the Vader from Wave 3. I saw that figure at the Target on Beechmont, Toys R Us in Eastgate and Target in Milford with none of the other Wave 3 figures. Honestly, I can't really blame them . . . .

Decent selection on the pegs

have been away from the pc as of late, so have not been able to post.

Florence and surrounding areas have been pretty well stocked it appears.

Toys rus has had legends this past week left them all and most appeard to be there or restocked the next day.

Walmart wave 3 and legends now chewbacca seems to sell first

Vader being 2 per case is the pegwarmer follwoed by those awful stormtroopers.

Legend quality seems prtty crappy. The rots clone is now all white and looks nice

Poor oom9 still needs a new figure

vwings and mauls ship are now in abundance

votc is doing decent as well

comic 2 packs seem to be hanging around as well

hopfully wave 3 of the comic 2 packs and basic wave 4 will hit in a couple weeks and keep new product flowing since legends seems to be hasbros focus for retailers.

VTSC, but no Wave 3

Have been finding the vintage figures (including the Hoth Stormtrooper) at just about every store I've been to today at Ridge and Fields Ertel. Only Darth Vader and a smattering of Luke from the figures for Wave 3 though.

Re: Heard about one of cincys scalpers today

He's a piece of something . . . . let the kids get their toys! He must have not been on the prowl today, because I finally found me a Chewie at Eastgate TRU at lunchtime.
