Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

Just ordered smiling luke, the insight book and - they have tfu commander back in stock right now. Thanks, jedichicken, I used the STARWARS10, 10% coupon and saved the tax, basically. Soundwave looks awesome but once I start down the transformers road, I know I'll be in trouble.

Ain't that the truth! All was going according to plan for me. I actually stopped with the TFs for a while until the Animated series came out. And the Classics series. And the Alternators. Now it's Human Alliance! At least now I open them so the packaging is almost nonexistant.

Did you go to Medford Target to pick up the CW wave?

Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

Levitown Target had no Clone Wars on the pegs. A worker pulled a case from the back. I got Gree, Windu, Space Anakin, Clone Denal, Ahsoka, and Cade Bane! Weird thing is Ahsoka has a spot in the plastic bubble, but did not come with her light saber.

Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

Found a Skirtless Hoth Trooper at Walmart tonight!


Had an unfortunate accident today. The top shelf of my IKEA glass case collapsed and all of my mini busts were either chipped, cut, broken, missing sharp edges, etc. Not fun at all. The glass case came out fine though.

So if anyone here is interested I'll be selling my two glass IKEA detolfs. They're both in great shape. Both are $40 each and can only do pick up or I can maybe drop it off at your house. Just let me know.

Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

BUFF!!! No extra Gree or Windu for me???
Nice find though, Cad Bane especially.

AP - man does that suck! That is like a really bad day man. I feel it. I looked at those detolfs in Ikea, looked at my son and said "hell no"...

Thanks for all the kind words guys.

If anyone sees Cad Bane or Loathsome, can you stash them for me? Thanks!

Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

I got CW Mace & Gree yesterday @ Target on Vets in Commack. They had wave 1 & 2, I left space suit Anakin/ObiWan/Ahsoka, clones and 1 Mace.

If I find more Cad Banes, I'll just pick them up. Stashing doesn't seem to work when I do it for others because they usually can't find the stuff, lol.

Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

Found the Marvel Universe Secret Wars 2-packs at Medford Target-I left 2 sets behind.
Found Marvel Legends Walmart Exclusives in Setauket Walmart.
They had everyone but Tigra (the one I wanted most of course)There was a couple of each of the others when I left.
Found Spiderman and his Amazing Friends 3-pack at TRU in Holbrook. That was the only one they had, I left 2 army builder sets behind.

Centerreach and Setauket Walmarts had a lot of the ESB Legacy waves hanging on the pegs.

Also, if anyone is interested, Target has the Terminator 3 3/4" figures for $1.72.

Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

Medford Target had the new Saga Legends figures today as well as the new deluxe packs. Passed on the deluxe though. Definitely not worth almost $20 after tax.

I'll probably be heading out to Walmart later, so I'll be sure to report back if there's anything good.

Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

I went out to Medford Target last night & picked up a CW ARF, Yoda, Loathsome & the Jawas. Left Commando Droids, Yularen, 4-A7, Echo's & 1 Space ObiWan. They had just brought a case out and wouldn't bring me another. I still need a Cad Bane.

Setauket Target did their reset & had the Clone Turbo Tank. But they are packed with old CW figures. I don't think we'll be seeing any new figures there for a while.

Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

AP - the scanner said they have more bro!

FYI - LAKE GROVE TRU is moving!!! The new store opens October 5th... in the Bally's shopping center on the opposite side of the Mall, where Stop&Shop used to be. They are getting NO MORE STOCK as of last week until the store opens. The stock room has been cleared of all boys toys already and they're almost done with the girls toys.

Looks like the TRU exclusive Commander Ponds (which has hit) will be a little tougher to get for me. All I need is 1 if anyone can help me out!

What was the target employee's excuse for not getting another case for you?

That's why you always have to look for a worker that looks that will help you out.

Saved me from posting.
Also, Setauket Walmart had nothing new too. I haven't even seen any scraps from the CW line, so all I ask is leave me a few scraps guys.

Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

Yeah, I stay away from any older women too. They never want to help. I'll usually go to someone working in the half of the store where the stockroom is, so this way it's not much of a walk for them. If they pull out the case and there isn't anything I want, I'll usually pull a random figure out anyway so it seems like they've helped me out. I'll then put the figure back on the shelf while they're not around. I always thank them a lot and act very appreciative, this way if I run into them again they'll help me.

I also have my look of death
If all else fails, that usually works
