Bought a Jaina, Jacen and Ti. Still at least 3 Jacens and 2 or 3 Jainas, plus a half dozen K Kruhks and a few Shaak Tis.

If anyone is interested, I have an extra Utris M'Toc that I really don't want. Trade?

Targets in Natick, Milibury & Milford are now 100% empty of ALL Star Wars figures. Nothing scanned in backroom as well.

This is being reported across the country

I think Everett had a total of 4-5 figures on the rack as of last night. Very weird to see...

I've picked up so many vintage figures at thrift stores now, that I have decided to start collecting on the cheap. A little ingenuity and they can be restored pretty well. I used three ring binder vinyl to make new capes for my vader and snowtrooper figures. Weapons and sabers will be a little tougher to repro, but I'll get it.
Anayway, while at toy vault picking up a vintage obi wan, I noticed the employees opening bins full of star wars figures and moving them into the back room. Bins just like the ones I have. It sent an instant shiver up my spine. I have no idea what the circumstances of this aquisition were but I got lump in my throat imagining my stuff being treated like this. I must really have the disease bad.

There's one in the Rhode Island mall and one in the Emerald Square mall in North Attleboro, that i know of. They have alot of cool stuff. The one in Attleboro has more stuff, but the one I saw the stuff coming in at was in rhode Island. Don't expect any major bargains unless you're looking for loose figures in good condition but with most accessories missing. They have lots of stuff mint in boxes and on cards but you pay for that stuff. I got a 77 obi wan, white hair, no cape or sabre for 2.99. But thats ok, I'll make that stuff and display him just the same.
You can find the Toy Vault at thier web site.

Danvers TRU has vintage! They had 2 cases of vintage at the service desk when I walked out at 12:20pm. Also bought the snowspeeder and cloud car, not sure if they have anymore.

Went tonight to the South Side of Brockton's K-Mart with the wife. I snuck off to the toy aisle and found a Resurgence of the Jedi battle pack. This Luke is AWESOME.


Happy hunting!

Had them pull the cases of new figures at tru brockton. They said no first but then told me the street date is no more so sell away. I got dak, han, 3po, leia, at at commander, dengar, and cloud car pilot. Passed on the repacks like luke. I also got the cloud car and snow speeder.

I'm impressed. I got the half off sale too. I could not justify paying 10 for figure. They better be normal prices when widely released.

I noticed luke's face was slightly changed and the paint was better. It wasn't enough to convince me to buy it. I'm happy that the droid parts are gone! Now I am not forced to buy my 400th vader or 100th bespin luke.

I'm really liking this cloud car. 3po is my favorite figure of the wave for some strange reason, atat commander a close second.

Bring on the big AT AT!

I guess I should have noticed the belt and torso. I'll pick him up at some point. I have a feeling when august 6th gets here these guys will flood the pegs. Anything will seem like a flood compared to the sparseness out there now.

Does any one know how much target and walmart have the vintage line slated for? I really hope these will not be $10 everywhere, I love collecting but cannot justify that price on a basic figure.

Bossk, in the next wave what is the breakdown of repacks? Looked like anakin, obi wan, sandtrooper, cody and clone repacks? Emperor, greivous and magna guard new?

Your correct on the repacks except it looks as if the Clone trooper is based on the Clone that came with the Gelagrub.

Emperor is new

General Grievous is the one from 2008/09 except now has a cape

Magna Guard is new

By the way are your avatar over at BanthaSkull is both awesome and extremely distracting!!!

Interestingly enough I'm not on bantha skull. Some one must have liked my screenname ha!

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery right? Now I know hoe boba fett felt when jodo kast showed up (I can get away with nerd jokes here)

TRU in Warwick, RI had the vintage TESB wave. I only saw Vader but didn't purchase, I can wait. Kind of bummed I missed out on the EU spacetrooper.
Fortunately a friend of mine found phase I darktrooper.

I haven't kept up much on the generic forums recently (which would have probably answered this next question, but...), does anyone seem to know what;s going on with all our local Targets and WalMarts? Nothing to be found anywhere in terms of figures or vehicles. Any ideas?


ps--Also--if anyone here has any BAD BJ Torso, left arm or left leg please let me know. Id be willing to buy or trade, check out my brand new page in the BAD classifieds. Thanks fellas.

Did any one have any luck finding the exar kun or kashyyyk comic packs? I found the other 3 but never had any luck finding the last two.

I found the Kashyyk ones at a Target just on a whim (my memory fails me right now as to which Target exactly it was...maybe Fram/Natick), I wasn't even really looking for them at the time, as I remember. It was quite a long time ago now that I recall, probably the very first time they shipped.

The only other set I wanted at that time was the Utapau pack, which I never saw. Speaking of which, if anyone has the commander from that pack, Id be willing to compensate a decent amount for him.

I ordered a set of EE exclusive comic packs while they were on sale. Pretty nice looking sets.

Does any one have the target dcpi for the at at yet? I was going to start calling around, I'd like to get that out of the way too.

That's the all-around-reports for the entire North American continent right now I think. Targets & Walmarts are just waiting on their fall resets if I had to guess, then the vintage stuff will start hitting. But I wouldn't doubt if they miss first 2 or maybe even 3 waves. Idk, we'll see.
Meanwhile, if your not one of the first 3 people in when TRU opens, you're outta luck with 1st wave of vintage......though I guess personally I can't really complain, I've done fairly well so far(considering I'm not interested in any of the repacks).

I got to TRU in Brockton @ 4:30 yesterday and picked up Han, ATAT commander, Dak and Luke. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't these $10 figs come with protective cases last time? Did Hasbro say why no plastic cases this time?

Many of these will remain on the pegs due to damage methinks.

They did come with cases as the special premium collection. These are designed to be the new basic line so they will be without protectives cases. Helps keep the price down.

Went looking for jodo kast at kamrt and the atat today but no luck. I really hope I don't have to wait until january to find the rots wave.

Ordered the maul lars pack last night from shopstarwars.

As indysolo previously explained---in past releases, these were looked at as "premium" type figures, thus the mark up at the time to like 12.99. Whereas now these figures are simply going to be the new Hasbro Basic Line (in essence, just replacing the B-A-D line), therefore the lack for any kind of protective packaging, as 95% of people buy these to have/play with/pose/display/etc the figure inside the packaging anyhow.

I do have to agree with you that unless these are shortpacked(which they do, thus far, appear to be), they may very well end up clogging pegs. Not for the reason of "damage" to a piece of silly cardboard packaging however (that type of collector began to die out at an extremely rapid pace over the course of this last decade), but more so simply for the reason----as stated before----that they are simply replacing the previous basic line so they should, therefore, carry forward with the previous basic line price. In that sense I have to admit I'm slightly befuddled on the 10dollar price point.

After getting annoyed by kmarts ineptness I ended up getting jodo kast. The 1st kmart in somerville said they had 6 when I gave them the upc. They couldn't find the box. Saugus said they had 6 then confirmed it was on the shelf, but nada when I arrived. After calling over 2 employees I escorted them to the stockroom where we located the case of 6. It just took 5 minutes of looking. a lot of crap back there. Should be 5 left if they put the rest of the case out in saugus.
