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.
That's exactly what I do too!
I also have my look of death
If all else fails, that usually works
You also have the look of death to make your figures stay standing too!

Nope. Finally found a Yularen with a good card, an SBD, and an ARF trooper. Still looking for Jawas, Mace, & the waves after that. Medford Target seems to be the only one readily stocking new stuff.

Re: Local Area Reports #14 : Long Island

I need Cad Bane too guys!


Well, this week has been a busy week! Saturday, my son Noah turned 5. We had a huge party here at my house. He got some cool toys... Transformers Fast Action Battlers Sideswipe & Skids and Animated Bumper Battlers Jazz. From Star Wars he got a purple lightsaber and the Galactic Heroes X-Wing (which is very cool). That was it for toys because he's already hooked up with everything else, lol.

I have found a lot of stuff this week too... bought a case worth of the new CW figs already (Mace, Gree, Loathsome, Jawas, Commando, ARF, etc). FINALLY found Transformers Animated Activators Cliffjumper (at Kohls of all places) and a Human Alliance Sideswipe at Bayshore TRU last night (Buff, move your [censored], they had more cases in the back, tell them you want the silver one). And lastly my SDCC Soundwave arrived today, not gonna open, great display piece right in the box. AND - Monday, AP - U know man - Tri-Klops!

My wallet needs a break!

I've actually finally decided to be more selective with what I buy now, especially with the CW line. But everything coming up from Legacy looks great.

Just got the Turbo Tank at Target Levittown, also, the hasbro insight book arrived today a lot thinner than I thought and it's a paperback, haven't looked inside yet.
I agree w/ FB - am not doing CW, but I did grab the Jawas- they are too cool, and I will get Cad and Loathsome if I come across them.

Na, I love the Clone Wars line. It is what is keeping SW fresh for me.

I got 1 at Holbrook TRU last week, but as of today they just have the 3pk with Yellow Daredevil and White Surfer.

I agree with Darthbuff, Clone Wars is keeping it interesting. Though I am looking forward to all the Legacy and comic packs too.

Thanks for that info! So they're out? I haven't heard of anyone finding these yet.

I think I'll just be buying Gha Nackt here in the classifieds, though.

Thanks Darthbuff I went there and picked up 1 for me and 1 a for Anthony today. Also got a CW Gree at Bayshore Target. They had Mace Windu but I left him because he's coming in a battlepack soon. They also had Yularen, Jawas, and the ARF trooper.
