marion TRU has the big display upfront, too bad all they did was move the CW and some other select stuff from the endcap.

Unfortunately, something tells me it will be a while before the Peoria Toys R Us gets a big display reset since they're undergoing a major renovation.

Peoria TRU has the big reset, despite the renovation. I picked up a CW Goji there yesterday.

Has anyone seen the MU Colossus or Juggernaut?
Saw them both at Peoria TRU yesterday. I've also seen the Collossus at both Morton and Pekin Walmarts previously.

Nice to see you on the boards again. The AT-AT is worth every penny.

marion TRU shrank the upfront star wars section. pretty much all carded figs back in the normal spot. upfront is mainly legos, helmets and some vehicles. they have more twilight barbies upfront than star wars stuff. still refuse to pay 9.99 for any TVC there. took advantage of the 2 for 12 legends sale

Received a mailer yesterday stating that the Peoria TRU is having their "Grand Opening" for their redesigned store starting on October 8th. Included a $5 off $25 purchase coupon. Looks like I'll be headed out on a toy run this weekend!

benton walmart reduced to TVC pegs from 8 to 4 thanks to the Iron Man bomb that hit yesterday.

On a whim I decided to swing by the Peoria TRU on my way home from work. I found 2 vintage-style AT-ATs in stock back in the regular action figure section! Still 1 left when I left the store.

Peoria Target has the new Hoth Ultimate Battle Packs as well as the Vintage Collection versions of the TIE Fighter and Snowspeeder. They also have a new display that has all three current figure series sitting on shelves. Unfortunately most of the vintage cardbacks were pretty bent. Possibly a result of people rifling through them looking for the UGH figures.

no ROTJ wave since we are full of TESB and ROTS except for benton which has a lone foil kenobi after i moved all the legends to the correct pegs.
hoth sets gone at marion target after the $5 markdown.
used the -$20 coupon for an AT-AT.
marion TRU consists of:
walk to SW aisle
look at overpriced things i don't want
walk back to car
drive to target or wally

benton just keeps restocking SL and nothing else.
marion walmart has ROTJ wave. go to the garden center where there is a pallet full of CW and SL. the tie bomber is also hiding out there.
marion target has the 9-pack and vintage boxed snowspeeder/tie fighter. they also put a fresh case of last year's geonosis packs.
skipped marion TRU until next week

Peoria Target now has Vintage figures for only $6.00. It's a shame that most of the ROTJ cardbacks are following the trend and are completely smashed and bent. :-(

I'll keep an eye out but considering one of my stores still has an end cap full of wave 10 and another has parts of 6,9,10 it doesn't look good down here.

marion-
target-never reset, $8.99 for TVC, bad selection. dropped the $99 vehicle
walmart- dropped SL from pegs, all over in clearance for $5.
tie bomber full price in clearance. TLC at-st now just $30, Dewbacks for $23.
TRU- picked up the only 2 Endor sets they had since i had a gift card, otherwise they are horrible.
Benton walmart doesn't seem to know what TVC is. one the few stores still showing the $99 vehicle SKU.
Herrin walmart nothing worth noting.

I still care...Im just not a fan of the Clone Wars cartoon figures and waiting for some cool non CW stuff to hit the pegs...

The CW cartoon figures have really really killed my interest in doing toy runs...

Im still waiting for the second Death Star Scanning crew guy we were promised two years ago...

The new Governer Tarkin looks good...

no!!!!!
i was hoping to go a whole month before anyone posted.
haven't seen TVC wave 5 bit once. AOTC wave seems to be out pretty good.
that dam marion still refuses to lower "clearance" items.
dewbacks stacked under scanner at $30 and TIE Bomber still full price.
marion TRU managed to find even more Legacy bespin guards and agen kolars but nothing else sees the light of day.

At Christmas I wasn't buying toys. Trying to save money because it's better to give than buy for yourself. That turned out to be a huge mistake, because by 12/26 all the ROTJ figures were gone. Luckily I bought a Wicket right around Thanksgiving. Since then I saw the AOTC wave once at Morton WM, and a Han with a medal, and an R5D4 at Pekin WM. Pekin WM BTW has a constant supply of CW figs, but nothing for Vintage. I'd love to get some OT figs, But a lone Wooof at Morton K-Mart, is all I've been able to grab since Christmas.
