I guess someone is trying to tell us something since the old thread was locked. Go ahead and post your recent finds/info here.


I haven't found anything new in a while, although I haven't really been looking. When I have gone to the stores they are all still pretty bare.
Got a few things in the mail from other scummers however, including an $8.00 ARC-170 that was missing only one missile, and a $5.00 AT-AT that was missing the side door.

Yeah, I tried to post 2 days ago, but forum was locked up. This was a revision 7.5 case evidently, since they weren't all there when I was in.

TRU had the McTrooper wave. Left all (I'm done) but moved McTrooper to the overhead.... Target had the holo vader Wave. Spent $12 on one from HTS a few weeks ago and now there were 2 on the pegs... figures.

Re: Recent Acquisitions--30th Anniversary(VA/MD/DC

I looked around in Woodbridge this evening. TRU had practically nothing... just some Saga Clones and Stormtroopers. WM had lots of left over Saga figures, nothing all that interesting. I did find some new figures (to me anyway) at Target. I picked up a McQuarrie Starkiller Hero. The card is perfect but the bubble was crunched a little. I passed on a couple of Hawkbat Clones, 7th Legion Clones, R2-D2, Tattooed Anakin, C-3PO/Salacious and a Ewok two-pack.

I haven't been looking much lately, but it was nice to find the Starkiller Hero. I think I just need the Snowtrooper and Han to finish the McQuarrie series.

Re: Recent Acquisitions--30th Anniversary(VA/MD/DC

I was wondering if there was a clonetrooper/stormtrooper wave cause that is practically all target in columbia has on the pegs.
Walmart columbia is barren. Just like last year after christmas till april. Hope this year they get some stuff sooner. They dont even have the new comic packs that are at every other wally (so i'm reading)

Re: Recent Acquisitions--30th Anniversary(VA/MD/DC

Check your Wal-Marts today guys!
I found scattered bits of the new wave between two stores. One store had 2 Tri-Droids, Commander Gree, Po Nudo, 2-1B, plus a couple of Anakins which I left behind, and another store had a Kashyyyk Trooper and Mustafar Droid.
They were all mixed in with a ton of older figures:
Holo Vaders, McQuarrie Rebels and Snowtroopers, Hawkbats, Brown Stain Clones, Jangos, Training Clone...
The pegs were jam packed, but there was only one of each of the new figures.

They only had 1 extra Gree & Kashyyyk trooper that I picked up for a fellow collector. Also mixed in were the aforementioned group plus Yoda on kybuck. Laurel Wally had those, but no wave 1. South Glen Burnie WalMart had new SW/BG Titanium wave: AT-OT, desert skiff, etc. Arundel Mills WalMart had new Force Unleashed Battlepacks. Happy hunting...2008 is here!

Re: Recent Acquisitions--30th Anniversary(VA/MD/DC

Well don't bother with Bowie Wal Mart or Target tonight. The only thing new was the Droid Factory pack at WM and the and titanium classic Galactica at Target.

ADDENDUM: You can also steer clear of the Crofton K-Mart...but that's a given.

I found a lone Gree at my local WM. Mixed with a bunch of random other stuff, including McRebel and McSnowy. Just grabbed the Gree. Very odd.

Re: Recent Acquisitions--30th Anniversary(VA/MD/DC

I picked up a Holo Vader this evening at the Target in the Springfield Mall. They had several other new-ish figures, but the Vader was the only I was looking for. Is it just me or does the Jedi Spirit Anakin look a little... umm... feminine? His robe looks like a dress.
