Have fun!

No offense intended, but it is about time. Any chance the previous five threads can be moved in here?

Nice to be out front! We needed this and lets keep it rolling. Nothing last night except plenty of Indiana Jones.

But it's not even new Indiana Jones stuff. Just the same figures from May over and over again. Which is why the stuff ain't moving, because kids and collectors have already bought these figures ... four months ago!

I am starting to see more Anakin's Modified Jedi Starfighters in TCW vehicles line, though. Even found it down in Rock Hill, SC.

2 things...

The wal-marts near me have gotten alot of the revision cases of Indiana Jones that contain only half of wave 3. Maybe those are the new cases you are seeing at your Wal-Mart

and

WHY CAN'T WE START NEW TOPICS??????? This is not any better than having our own thread in the General section. We could have a recent finds thread for each area of the state, a Indiana Jones section, a GI JOE section, a general conversation thread, etc....but no. Anyone know why we can't start a new post?

The "far South" Target on Rea Road in Charlotte has the wave 5 G.I. JOE comic book two-packs (the Destro w/ gold head). They had new JLU three-packs, too (I bought a Captain Atom pack and a Question pack).

Where these an endcap, display, on the shelf? Where they in the toy dept, video game dept, or the front of the store?

Found wave 3 Legacy at Target on 15-501 in Durham tonight except for Jodo Kast.
Found wave 3 Legacy at Wal-Mart in Kernersville, including Jodo Kast. But he was the last one I found. He was hiding on a top peg and all the way in the back. I picked up 2 each of the death star engineer and saleucami trooper and 1 each of dooku, Yaddle/Evan Piell and Jodo Kast.

There were 2 Evan Piell's at Wal-Mart. One had a really hot pink scar on the face and the other one was much much lighter. Which one was the better choice?

Also, the local Gamestop had the Felucia Stormtrooper sitting behind the counter and said it would be given out on Monday/Tuesday at midnight to those who buy the game.

It doesn't get much traffic, but there is a thread:

Anyone collecting in South Carolina?

Meanwhile, I spotted the Marvel #68 & #69 Comic Packs at Wal-Mart in Lincolnton. The two Legends packs were all gone, though.

Found two of the not-so-well-regarded Lars Homestead sets at the Winston-Salem TRU today. Shelled out my $50 for my igloo and rat and went on my merry way.

Went to the TRU in Durham but missed the scuba troopers. I did see 4 of the new B-wings. They are horrible. Ill stick to the older versions. They look like a kid painted them with red spray paint.

Re: last night in Charlotte...

So I went to two Targets in the Durham/Chapel Hill area. Found all of the new Clone Wars wave (Super Battle Droid, Clone Pilot Oddball, Commander Cody, and Ahsoka Tano) at the one near Southpointe and two Super Battle Droids and Ahsoka Tano at the one off of 15-501 (One of each are gone). Has anyone else seen these? I didn't know they were supposed to be out.

I emailed Phillip Wise and informed him of our inability to start new topics. He has since made the correction. And we can start our own topics now!

Hey Eweb, I was just in the Durham TRU... I live near there. They still had some of the Scuba Troopers. There are two on the bottom peg of the small center display next to the service desk. LMK if you want me to see about picking one up for you.
