Checked Durham TRU earlier today. Nothing new...they usually get new stuff a day or two after the bogo sale.

Has anyone in the area seen the alien wing guard Utris M'toc?

I THINK there was one at that TRU in Cary today. I'm not positive, though, as I wasn't paying much attention to the figures themselves (was checking card art).

No luck in Winston-Salem for the new EU wave or the TFU multipacks.

Any luck in Greensboro? Anyone, anyone, Bueller?

Yeah, I saw one at the crossroads TRU. Didnt buy it, and am really disappointed at myself.
I'm very confused. What were you talking about here?

Got both TFU multipacks at toysrus today. Can't believe the second one came out for $14.99 plus taxes. I love that promotion. Finally I get to switch the head of the mandalorian Marrek with the secret apprentice evolution Marrek and have an awesome figure. (I was really disappointed when I got the evolutions pack and looked at the poopy-making face Marrek) but now I'm happy!


Ps: Anyone from the Cary, NC area who's looking for those packs will find them on the TRU at crossroads. They are rather pegwarming, but no idea for how long. So far the only figure I found from the EU wave was the Alien face Bespin guard which I really, really regret not buying. :/

Got the EU packs at TRU in Cary on Friday. There were about 10 of them. They are on the bottom shelf, kinda hidden. Buy one ,get second half off. That worked for me since I only wanted a few of the figs, gave the rest to my 2 sons.

I found the Cold weather Obiwan from CW W3 at the Skibo Road WM in Fayetteville last night late. There were 3 more on the pegs but no other figs from that wave.

Sheesh, I was there three times in the past two days and saw one pack one time. The price tag isn't even there any more. I had been hoping that was done because they were going to put up the new endcap today, but that was not the case as of 8:30 PM.

I'm serious when I say they were hidden on the bottom shelf. Poke around a little and they should be there.

I went back again and scoured the bottom shelves of the SW aisle and scanned all the bottom aisles in the immediate area. Either they're gone, moved to a random area of the store, or have invisibility auras.

The action figure section appeared unchanged this morning at that TRU...I usually see at least a few new cases' worth of figures from one line or another on truck days.

Checked Durham TRU and Target next to it yesterday. Nothing new to report, however TRU still had a couple of the TFU packs. I have yet to see a Hondo myself. I found a Bly back in March, but I was in Alabama at the time. I found several figs in that wave back then and have not seen them here for some reason.

Found one set of the EU wave and an alien wing guard at TRU in Durham today. The sweetest thing is that they were $4.99 ea. Finally, I got some figures at sale price. The date on the sale tag said 4/30 - 7/3, so hopefully that means TRU is going to have the figures on sale for a couple of months. They had put out a few more packs of the TFU figures too. Still haven't found a Hondo or Thi-sen, but can't complain about the run I had today.

Cary TRU is now loaded with TFU packs. The shelf space was filled to the point they were overstacked.

All the basic figure pegs were also filled to capacity - unfortunately, without any EU wave in sight. That has me concerned that they won't replenish with that case assortment for a while.

I've noticed that TRU online has the EU figures listed as out of stock and are at full price (all others are $4.99) and there is a limit of 10 per customer. This is why I don't like exclusives. It's scalper fodder.

Glad you got them at last. I still haven't seen any EU. Am I right to think think WM and Target are skipping this wave?

The EU wave is exclusive to TRU when it comes to brick and mortar stores.

Toys R US online has them listed but not in stock right now. Has anyone seen additional markdowns at Wal-mart. My sister lives in Johnson City, TN and said her Wal-mart is selling SW figs for $4.50, so hopefully we will see the same around here.

Yep, I stopped at a couple of Walmarts in the Triangle today and the figures were $4.50. It's nice to be able to pick up some figures at prices of 12-15 years ago. Y'all might not believe this but I picked up the Rebel Pilots Legacy series 3 from a Wally for just $1. Yep, I couldn't believe it when I scanned it. I had wanted some for customizing and was hoping they might be on clearance. The force was definitely with me today.

I have an extra alien wing guard if anyone in the triangle is interested. If you want to trade I'm still trying to find a Hondo, Thi-sen and Cold gear Rex or either of the Solo twins.

The endcap was up at Cary TRU today, but there was nothing different on it - just the same product that had been stuffed into the main aisle a few days ago.

I stopped by Durham TRU earlier today. I guess I missed out on the CW figures I was looking for because they had some new ones...specifically they were cold weather Obi and Anakin, Commander Stone, Cody and Gree and few others but no Hondo, Thi-sen or Cold gear Rex left.
