Parmatown TRU and Target had all of TAC 2 except for McFett. TRU and Target also had the new comic book packs. TRU still has the new Vintage line of figures.

I have to say after CIV it was weird to be toy hunting without hundreds or other collectors here.

Finally got someone to open that case at Target. Wasn't wave 3 like I hoped but it was a wave 2 and had two each Lukes, Biggs, Solos, Deathstar Troopers, Rebel Honors, and McBobas in it. Passed on them. Saving my cash for Wave 3 and Legends.

what sucks is not being able to find pegs full of new stuff. ok where's the new crap. Dayton stores suck. also on my run in Indiana,Muncie of all places won't put out any new figures till the old figures are gone. what a bunch of crap. guess the pegs will stay full of wave last year.

I'm reposting this in case it got lost at the tail end of the last thread...


ALSO....I don't plan on buying any more SW this year, so now I have a Galactic Hunt sticker thingie I don't need. If anyone wants the sticker and order form that came with Bespin Luke, it's up for grabs. Just PM me. First person that PMs me and wants it, it's yours if you send me a SASE.

I just hope that helps out my fellow Ohioans!!

Been a while, but...
Not much in the Stow area. Lots of TSC left-overs and wave 1 R2s and Obi-Wans. Picked up a Quinlan comic pack at Wal-Mart today. They also have V-Wings. I have yet to see wave 2 or the vintage figs. It sucks not having the money to hit the stores all the time. I still need to find a McTrooper and Galactic Marine from wave 1.

Just to back up what ReesesLover said, the Dayton stores suck. All of them. Meijer...WM...TRU...Target...suck, suck, suck, & suck. Horrible and deplorable.

Man, I feel better...

Picked up wave 3 today at the Fairlawn WM, minus Vader and Luke - but I didnt get Luke because they didnt have him - there were 3 cases worth of figures, but not a single Luke, some hoarder must be building a diorama. I stashed a McChewie (lol) if one of you local posters need it.

Thanks, OGWan. I needed that.

Hey, ReesesLover, did you get those 3 I stashed for you in Target? Just curious...

If anyone in the Dayton area finds an extra Concept Chewie, can you pick it up for me? Its all I'm wanting from this wave and I dont have the time or gas to run around everywhere looking for 1 figure. Thanks a bunch!

As of this morning, Brookpark WM has 2 V-Wings, 2 TIEs and 1 Sith Infiltrator as well as remnants of TAC Wave 3. They look to be resetting the action figure aisle.

I also found McChewie at the Parmatown WM. They had one left and a lot of the other figures from the wave. I also picked up a Stormtrooper. Parmatown Target had remnants of TAC 3 as well.

I found those playing cards that have Star Wars posters on them. They were at the Stow Walgreen's (on Graham Road). Lots of them left--I bought one and there were probably 20 or more boxes remaining. $2.99 each.

On the "I'm looking for" side--if anyone in the Stow/Kent area spots an extra concept Chewie or Vintage Snowtrooper, could you pick that up for me? I also don't have time to drive around everywhere, and I'm never out at stores first thing in the morning.

Cuyahoga Falls TRU this morning had the Vintage Leia and Han, but I'll pass on those until clearance (which, from the looks of the figures, I'd say is inevitable).

Do you think sugarcreek Walmart will still have wave 3 if I go there in the next couple of days? Do they ususlly restock every night if they sell out?

LC Walmart had about 6 cases of Vintage on a pallet last night on my way home (2am!!) The toy dept was a buzz with emplyees all doing the Transformers reset for today. There was a really cool guy who saw me eyeing them and asked if I wanted him to open one, so why not. They were the long shelf displays that the last wave showed up in for endcaps etc. Not sure if they are putting them all out at once or what, but there should be plenty there in the next day or so. And I ended up buying a Bossk (Yeah, Yodan, you convinced me. After further inspection, he is a pretty cool figure!)

If you're checking the Stow WM you're going to be disappointed, I went there today and they had ONE Vader from wave 3, so there clearly is not "a bunch". Its a shame not many participate in the "buddy system" of stashing items that others need...

Noticed remnants of Wave 3 at Logan Wal-Mart from Friday or Saturday. I did get lucky and pick-up 2 full sets of Wave 3 from the Wal-Mart across the river from Pomeroy today. My buddy needs them too. I was making a loop to Lancaster from Ripley, WV. I finished out the new comic packs at Lancaster Target. Nothing special to speak of in Athens.

Walked into Target today and made the corner down the aisle to find a woman on a cell phone (with her husband) taking the last wave 3 Luke off the pegs. (expletive)!!!!! My wife HAD to slow me down by trying out that damn folding chair! Plenty of Vader's (obviously the wave 3 peg warmer) left though...

Galactic Marines galore at the Stow WM--finally picked one up. Not much else there...as Darth Sidious warned me. Nothing at the Stow Target...but they did have empty peg room for the vintage figures.

It should come as no surprise, the first wave of Saga Legends hit Target Polaris this morning. Man, Hasbro is going all out this year. Hopefully they ust keep pushing produact with no dry spells! And now gold UGH coin figures coming later! Those seem a lot cooler than just a chrome stand!

Big finds (for me anyways, seeing as I can never find anything new) today. I decided to hit up Streetsboro today. Walmart had NOTHING! They had a ton of TSC and the Vader Coin Albums, and some TIEs and V-Wings. Target is where I struck gold. Remnants of waves 2, 3, and VTAC. Picked up a DS Trooper, Vader, Bespin Luke, and Hoth Han. The only part I was not happy about was that these 4 figures came to 40 bucks. Ouch!

Stopped by Steelyard Target last night and they had remnants of TAC wave 3. VTOC was also on the pegs - all players were present, even after taking home a Snowtrooper and Bespin Luke.
