Yea I saw them there Saturday night. I also had 2 sandtroopers in my hand form the lost wave and left them. I just couldn't justify them. I already own 1. And I also had in my hands 2 of the A-Team vans from Hotwheels. And put them back as I really don't collect them either. I need to focus and keep my focus in check. Here in about a month or 2 I will put up alot of my collection on sale just to scale it down and focus on Gentle Giant, Sideshow and 501st costume building. Hasbro and all other side hobbies are coming to a close.
If anyone checks out toys r us and you find the Masterpiece Optimus Prime TRU Exclusive... can someone PM me if they find it. I don't really get to check this thread that often, and PM's get to me via e-mail and I can repsond faster.
I appreciate it, if there is ever anything I can do to help you out, let me know. Thanks.
Thanks to ephantmon, I was able to pick up Masterpiece Optimus Prime at TRU today. They had about 3 cases of the lost wave. So there are decent figures at the Dodge TRU. There was 1 case of the Masterpiece Prime if left if you're into that. I haven't bought an optimus prime ever, and this was my first purchase, and 2nd optimus I have ever owned. The origional back in 1984 which just made me want to be nostalgic.
Found several hard-to-find vintage collection figures at Oakview TRU: Deleted Scene ROTJ Luke, Hoth Luke, ANH Vader, Nom Anor, Dr Evazan (unpainted scar), 501st Clone trooper, Aayla Secura, Kithaba (red bandana version) and Wedge Antilles.
Thanks for the heads up. I picked up 1 of each of the light up figures. Good stuff there. I was hoping one of these days to get a light up vader. And I have never seen so many wedge figures on the pegs.
At the Cross Roads TRU, I saw a red banada kithaba. Although the card was destroyed, so I left it. They had a couple of nice figures there, but the cards were destroyed. And both TRU are out of the Optimus figure I wanted. Although to all fairness, I had over 2 years to buy it and now it's all gone. Maybe the 2ndary market.
Marvel Universe collectors, the new team three-packs are at the Oakview TRU. I picked up the Uncanny X-Men and West Coast Avengers sets with this week's Buy One Get One 40$ Off sale; there's still a WCA and Inhumans set left on the shelf.
Bellevue Wal-Mart (cornhusker and 25th street) had the wave out with 1 malgus on the pegs. The card was so badly damaged, I left it. Didn't know if you were looking for clean cards or not. Anyway, they only had the 1 Malgus there. So they might be starting to show up in the Omaha area now. At least we have 1 confirmed sighting of the wave hitting. THey still had CW realistic anakin and about 3 of the ANH vaders too. Happy hunting Omaha Scummers.
Marvel Universe collectors, Oakview TRU had wave 19 on the pegs today--saw several Hercules, Nova, Puck, and Nighthawk figures. I've also been the seeing Inhumans and Uncanny X-Men three-packs at a few Targets lately.
Hey, with the upcoming release of the GI Joe "Ultimates" soon, I hear people saying they are in the back room of Targets in different places, so I'm hoping someone can help me keep an eye out for them in Omaha. I'm in the market for some of them. I've pretty much gotten out of Star Wars for now until I can start with my GG collection again. But for now, I'm working on my vintage ARAH GI Joe collection. According to the interent, the sales date for alot of these figures is the 22nd, but we all know some stores can't seem to hold to store dates. So I would appreciate a watchful eye in case someone sees them. THanks.
I saw what remained of the black series at the Oakview TRU. All they had left was the Biggs Darklighter figure. But it was the black series.
Saw my first 6" black series figures today at Krypton. It's a good feeling when you see these new lines coming out, and I have no desire to collect them at all. I empowering to be done with modern Star Wars.
3 3/4" black series at toys r us dodge street. They had 2 anakins, 1 Biggs, 1 biker scout, then the crappy 2 packs. No 6" figures. Passed on all of them but it was kinda cool seeing something new for a change
The black series has been found in the Bellevue Wally. Lots of bikers, lukes, and anakins. Also the Saga Legands. I might get that R4-P17. Any way, if you guys are on the hunt, check the bellevue wally
