i thought it was time to start a new thread as philip asked to not exceed 500 posts in one.

i stopped by lakeside meijers and not only did they not have ANY star wars, the guy working the section said they wouldn't be getting anymore in this season. anyone else have this happen at any other meijers?

Philip: This thread was continued from "The New Michigan pt 2".

I wouldn't be surprised if the guy who told you that was either a moron or screwing with you because he doesn't like collectors. Some Meijers have reset their isles recently and have added space for VOTC and unleashed.

Both Targets have reset isles in Kalamazoo. Both had 2 cases each of the Ben, Leia, Han cases of VOTC. Both had TIE Fighters and X-Wings, West Main had Unleashed Obi-Wan and Leia as well as 12 inch Stormie, Luke and Green Fett. I bought nothing.

Nothing new at either Commerce Twp or White Lake Wal-Marts, nothing new at Commerce Twp Meijer either. Commerce Target has a bunch of galactic heroes, the falcon that goes with it, a bunch of OTC x-wings and ties and VOTC Han, Ben and Leia.

Darrin-- I didn't snag any extra Dagobah, but I'll keep my eyes open for you. I have a feeling we will be up to our @$$es in OTC once they are hitting regularly. Remain calm O' Comedian of Brighton. The Dagobah wave shall be yours soon!

Swimming in OTC you say? Hope springs eternal. In all of the stores I've hit over the past month, I've yet to see even -one- OTC fig on the pegs. Feels like 2003 all over again.

Saw a frsh case of unleashed today at White Lake Wal-Mart. I don't collect unleashed, but it was the one with red clonetroopers in it. I think there might have also been Chewie and a few others that I didn't bother to look at. As of 10 am, the case was untouched on the floor near a pallet.

I was in Grand Rapids last night and went to Targets on Alpine, 28th, and 54th. There was a ton of everything but basic OTC. And no VOTC Luke. I'm starting to think VOTC Han and Ben might end up clearanced out afterall. They've started to warm pegs. Miejer on West Main in Kalamazoo has had them for a few weeks and they're not selling that well.

Today I found the long-awaited Unleashed case featuring Bossk, Aayla Secura, and Tusken Raider. They can be found at Warp 9 in Clawson. You will pay more for them, but there are those that don't mind paying the extra buck, so save your complaints. They are $25.95 each. All three of them look as good as the pictures you may have seen.

Walmart in Kalamazoo is overflowing with 2004 Saga. Tanus and J'Quill sitting on the front of the pegs, same place they were the last time I was there almost 2 weeks ago. Pretty much everything but the Generals wave in over abundance. Meijer on W. Main had remnants of a case of OTC Bespin as well as 4 VOTC Bens and 3 Hans. Also enough Sidious and Luke Unleashed to clog the clearance section for months as they inevitably will. TRU got a truck, absolutely nothing on it. Sigh.

TRU by Lakeside today had a bunch of all 3 12" VOTC dolls and 1 lone, beat up Unleashed Leia.

Has anyone found a 12" Boba Fett that does NOT have a messed up scope on his helmet? All the ones I've seen so far have been bent and/or twisted.

Kalamazoo Target on W. Main still has everything but basic OTC this morning. It doesn't look like they've sold a single VOTC this week. K-Mart also has nothing.

There wasn't SQUAT to be found at Gibraltar Mt. Clemens today. Except I bought a 12-pack of Sharpie markers for $2 from some asian guy in the outside area. He had a whole box full of packs.

I checked out that brand new Meijer that opened on the 3rd in Rockford (about 15 miles north of Grand Rapids) and you'd think they would have all OTC and VOTC since the store was completely stocked from scratch in the last week. Nope. Mostly old Aayla and Yoda/Padawan Saga figures. Though they did have a row of VOTC Han, Ben, and Leia. Yet to find a Luke.

I was going to mention the same thing that Snowmaker did, that Gibraltar in Mt. Clemens at the card show today had absolutely nothing.

Meijer at 13 and Little Mack reset their toy aisles, but no basic OTC to be found. They did have a few VOTC including one Luke which i left behind since i have one.

Toys R Us at 13 1/2 and Gratiot had only two VOTC figures (Han and Obi). No ESB VOTC to be found. They also had the buddies and plenty of them.

For those that saw my last post about the new Unleashed figures at Warp 9, i thought i'd let you know that i didn't buy any of them. I was just posting that i found them. Someone decided to email me wondering why i paid $85 for all 3. I didn't buy one, but if i really liked one i wouldn't mind paying extra for it.

Anyone planning on going to Wizard World Chicago this weekend? I'll be there on Friday and looking very forward to it. I hope that i score one of those exclusive Luke as Stormtrooper busts.

I went to the Target in Southfield on Saturday and along with the normal Leia, Han, and Ben VOTC I found a OC Ben and OC Stromtrooper in the VOTC Blister pack. It looks like someone did the old switcharoo unless someone knows something that I don't. Too bad they did not replace the figure with a R2B1 or something else I need.

At any rate, they also had the OTC ships.
