The Freddy's by me has restocked TVC with Wave 5. Not only that, they are on sale at $5.59 each, and there is a 10% Off Home Dept. coupon in the President's Day Weekend sale flyer.
Death Star Escape Luke
Utapau Trooper (unpunched card)
Endor Capture Luke (unpunched card)
Really the only ones from wave 5 I wanted were Yoda, Luke, and a Stormtrooper. Han, R5, Gree, and the 212th I have no idea what to do with..
I'm really excited about wave 6 and on though, I'm just not feeling these 2 waves. Hopefully the stores will get those waves sooner rather than later, so we can avoid the online retailers. Anyways, has anybody spotted any Gamorreans or Wickets anywhere?
Found AOTC wave this morning at Target. Picked up Mace, Kit, Zam, Padme, Anakin, and Jango. All are mint and came with punches attached. Picked up the mixed wave at 2 different Fred Meyers after Target. Picked up 2x Yoda, Stormie, Gree, Luke DS, and another Mace to open. One Freddies had both AOTC and mixed wave. Glad they finally hitting the pegs.
Did a little bit of hunting today. Beaverton-Hillsdale Target had the remnants of the AOTC wave. They had Padme, Obi-Wan, and Mace Windu. Was hoping for Zam...no such luck.
Hall BLVD Target had the same stuff as last time...crap-ton of Endor Soldiers and Ackbars. They had the rest of the ROTJ wave as well except for Wicket and the Gam Guard. They had a non-peghole Luke as well.
K-Mart had a few of the Wave 5 figs (Death Star Escape Luke, Stormtrooper, Ceremony Han) but little else.
TRU had bupkis. They did put out the new Pirates of the Caribbean figures, but only a single case. The one figure I wanted (Angelica) was gone. I did pick up the prison cart thingy though. Nice dio piece.
TRU seems to have gotten out even more Star Trek movie figures. They were down to $3 I think. If you want to get the figs for the chairs, now would be a good time.
I never thought it would happen to me. But I stopped by Fred Meyer in Newberg to get some cream cheese and checked the toy aisle as usual. Expecting my typical disappointment I instead found not only Zam Wessel, but Dagobah Luke, Weequay, and General Lando. The latter three didn't ring up, but the lady used Zam to price all the figures. They were not only on sale for $6.39 but I had a 10% off coupon as well.
I asked about the Shelby's show in the old thread. I think the response was that there wasn't really that much stuff and that a lot of the vendors tended to price things too high. Or that maybe they priced stuff 5 years ago and were still trying to sell it for that amount even though it was POTF2 or something.
If it's changed, and you happen to go, I hope you give us a report
Fred Meyers still has their TVC figs at $5.99, although it's not marked on the shelves (at least at my store). Plus, 10% off all Home Dept. coupon in the weekly ads. Picked up Jango, Mace & Peasant Padme to complete that wave.
Plus SW LEGO on sale for about 15% off, if you're a maniak.
Was up by Jantzen Beach and decided to go by the Toys R Us. They actually have the Lando/Dagobah Luke wave there, and the revised Stormtroopers. If anyone needs that wave, I think the whole thing was there.
Fred Meyer's has a 40% sale on all SW action figures and it which makess it a price of $4.79 sale price. Which means that Target and Wally worlds price match, but you have to take the Freddy's ad with you to those stores! I have picked up many figures here in Albany and Salem! Found CW Colt wave in Salem and my friend found it Lebanon as well.
Good luck out there!
