I am willing to drive almost ANYWHERE for the new Han Solo Yavin Ceremony figure in good shape. Has anyone seen one around?

I went from Akron to Pittsburgh (to Ikea) and back and stopped at every Walmart and Target there and back and found nothing.
Any recommendations on which Kmarts?

You might want to check some KMarts. I found all of wave 5 there yesterday.
Sorry, I'm not familiar with your area, so I'm not sure what KMarts are within your driving distance.

Yeah, K-mart is the only place I have found Gamorean Guards, and I found 2 at once.

I saw those last weekend.
Since they're still there, I guess I'm not the only one that walked away from the high price tag.

Had to go to Washington D.C. this week. On the way and while I'm here I probably stopped at 8 Wal-Marts, 5 Targets, and 2 KMarts and haven't found a single remnant of Wave 4 or Wave 5. I did pick up the one Gammorean Guard I found, so now I have a duplicate.

Yesterday, when I tried to used the $5 off Rewards coupon that just expired Friday, the store wouldn't honor it even after I explained what had happened with the pre-order. I also lost out on my December dollars because I used that coupon towards the pre-order instead of an in-store purchase. I e-mailed TRU requesting $10 in Rewards coupons because of this and 24 hours later, I received this response:

I'm sorry that you were unable to use your Rewards R Us certificates. We appreciate your concerns relating to having lost the benefit of the first certificate due to cancellation, and not being able to use the second due to expiration. I have forwarded your email to the appropriate team for their prompt handling, and you may expect a response from a Guest Service Specialist within 3 to 5 business days.

The saga continues. . .
Well, almost one month and four e-mails to the TRU Customer Service department, I finally received an e-mail with a $10 coupon to make up for the lost rewards. The coupon can only be used in-store and expires in 10 days. Better than nothing. Now if only the store had something new I wanted.

Medina WM has DS escape Luke, ceremony Han, and R5D4 as of 2:00 today.

I went to Target across the street and got GI Joe Skydive.
Way better value for the current pricepoint. I'm thinking of completely switching hobby lines if this keeps up.

If anyone is around there, can you get one for me? I am in Akron and I am too far away from Medina to drive out there and maybe miss out on the Han.

Help me out, please?

As of Sunday afternoon, Avon Walmart had a couple of Yavin Ceremony Hans, a Yoda, 212th Battalion clone trooper, and Death Star Escape Luke. I had already ordered mine from HTS so I left them.

Chapel Hill Target FINALLY had wave 4, minus Jango & Padme.
I picked up Zam, Obi, and the blue guard; was going to get Anakin too, but I passed for now.
Nothing much to write home about at the Stow Target.

Good to hear that wave has arrived in this area - any sign of the new CW wave (Cad Bane, etc) from anyone?

Saw Wave 5 at Wadwa (Wadworth Walmart) today. They had everyone including Yoda and (I think) Wedge Antilles. I left everyone but the Han Solos...sorry they are all outta Hans.

WadsTarg (You guessed it....wadsworth target) has all of Wave 4. Left them all alone.

Oh, and both places had the new Clone Wars figures (including the Bane
)

Happy hunting!

Yeah, I saw it for the first time a few weeks ago.
Sunday, I spotted Obi-Wan, Hevy, and Ahsoka's droid in Medina again.
I haven't seen Bane since the first time. The new version is awesome.

Strongsville Target has the new CW wave as of 5:15 PM.
I was a little tempted by Hevy but left them all on the pegs.

I picked up the new Cad Bane last weekend. I saw several of them. Didn't realize he was new until I looked it up. I'm not really keeping up on the Clone Wars stuff.

I got the whole wave at the North Olmsted Target at the end of January and on the same day, I saw them at the Fairview Park Target.

Brookpark Walmart had all of vintage wave 5 yesterday at lunch. The box that they came in must've been under some really heavy boxes because all of the card backs had a subtle bend. Also, when they placed them on the peg, they were "gentle" enough not to fully punch out the peg hooks.

My HTS order arrived with the figures I ordered from vintage wave 4 and 5 - they were all in great condition, I was rather surprised. Glad I ordered them, still havent seen them around here!

Went there this morning; not expecting to find anything, but actually did! I ran into another fellow collector there (didn't catch his name, but a really nice guy) who was looking for some openers, but offered me anything that I was looking for. I picked up Luke and Han 'cos the cardbacks were new ones. Passed on the Yoda for now, but will probably regret it later. *shrug*

So-- big "thank you" to the guy who helped me out this morning.

Great Northern Target has a ton of the new CW two packs.
On the way home from work, I had stopped at the Fairview Park Target and a very helpful employee checked on these and said their store would not be getting them but the North Olmsted store had a dozen on hand. Headed over there and left with one of each.

I picked up the new wave of CW figures today at WM, and it was tough to pay $8+ for Ahsokas droid, which is just a repaint with no accessories. On the other hand, the Cad Bane is amazing and the Todo droid accessory is one of the best yet - I wish Hasbro put a bit more value into the figures like they did with Bane. Ahsokas droid, while cool, needs something else - and if they are going to do more astro droids, they need to start adding an accessory. The $8+ for the droid was just as hard to swallow as the $9+ for the vintage Yoda...

Agreed. At this point, they should seriously double pack the droids.

On a related note, I saw Yoda at Steelyard WM this morning and I can't believe anyone would honestly even consider paying nine bucks for that.
He's half the size of an astromech!!!!!

Finally saw some new vintage in Dayton. Walmart near the Dayton mall had a Yoda, stormtrooper, and a couple repacks from wave 5. Hopefully wave 4 isn't far behind.

Alright, I'm getting a little frustrated.
Could someone in the Cleveland area kindly grab me a Gi Joe POC Lowlight if they see one?
I've met up with several guys on here to do trades already so no worries.

Thanks!

There is an Ohio GI Joe thread, did you check with the guys that collect them?

Yeah, I've been on that thread a few times. The only guys who post there are all down in the Columbus area.
I'm looking to meet up with someone and not have to add on shipping charges.

Saw wave 5 for the 1st time today at Wally Bedford.
(fyi no wave 4 there, although I'm all done w/ wave 4 now)
There's a Gree, Han, R5, Yoda & Utapau (w/yellowed helmet) still there if ya need. The Han figure looks as bad or worse in person. I was borderline on Yoda, but after seeing in person I'll probably pass on that fig. The only wave 5 fig I wanted was the 212th clone, and his helmet was that crappy yellow so I guess I'm still hunting.

FYI there's also a Luke endor capture & Grievous Rots up there if ya need those.

Check your Kmarts people.
I went to two different Kmarts this afternoon and they both had AT-ATs on clearance for $75.
In addition, all clearance toys are an additional 20% off.
That means you can get an AT-AT for $60 right now.
Happy hunting!
