Re: Local News

Visited TRU in Gaithersburg last night. The seemed to have pulled old stuff from the stock. They had two STAP Attack battle packs and a few Wompa Attacks (Hoth Patrol) BPs and a pair of B-Wings. They even dug out the Lars homestead and put it on clearance for $29.

They still have plenty of Ponds and rest of the figures are decently stocked. They currently have the buy 2 get one free.

Re: Local News

Visited TRU in Rockville this am. They have the free Ponds w/ $30 purchase and Deluxe figures on sale for $13. I picked up a BARC speeder w/501st trooper. Not much else. The clone manual looked interesting, might get that later.

Also hit Target in Rio. They also had the CAT droid. I didn't see Ahsoka's fighter, but then again, I didn't dig too deep.

Re: Local News

Scored the CW Capt. Argyus wave at Balt. WalMart. My friend found same wave at Glen Burnie WalMart & his friend found the wave at Rt. 1 Wally in Arbutus...so they're hitting. Laurel Wally had a Cad Bane if anyone still needs.

Re: Local News

How are you guys that ordering from HTS finding the condition of the figures (cards, bubbles, etc.)?

Im considering just ordering from there to save time hunting, but am nervous, that as a MOMC type, I'll spend the money and get damaged cards.

Re: Local News

Personally I've never had an issue with ordering from HTS. You do take chances though that a card might get bent a bit, or a paint job isn't perfect.

Re: Local News

I pretty much always get mint cards from them, but I think it's just dumb luck.
They make no effort to pack the figures carefully. They just throw them in the box with a couple of air bags.

Actually, there are times I didn't even get the air bags.

Re: Local News

Laurel Target had Corp. Alliance snail tank on the shelf, Wedge A. X-Wing on endcap. Columbia Target had Cad Bane if anyone still needs; Columbia TRU pretty much had a whole section of Cdmr. Ponds spread out. They also had the Mattel toys from James Cameron's Avatar out on an endcap. May p/u the AMP suit eventually.

Re: Local News

I have pretty good luck with Hasbro as well, but I agree that don't go out of their way in the way that they pack the boxes.

Well you can always but the better card at another store and then return the more damaged one.

Re: Local News

I am beginning to think that Gaithersburg Target will not be stocking the Legacy BAD figures. It has been well over 2 months since they had anything at all. And nothing new in well over that.

Re: Local News

TRU in Seven Corners had the Whorm Loathsom CW wave fully stocked this past weekend. Figures they re-stock in a big way just after the sale.

Hadn't seen that wave until now - which is odd considering the Cad Bane wave (which is numbered later) has been hitting pretty heavy.

Still havent seen any new Legacy figures. Most stores still have pegs labelled for them (which is encouraging), and have Legends and CW figures segregated into their own separately labelled pegs. Can't even say there's alot of old Legacy pegwarmers left - looks to me like either distribution is lagging or stores ordered Legacy late.

Re: Local News

They have some of the new legacy wave at Target and Walmart yesterday. Purple Padme at both, Rum, Clegg, and TPM Obi.

I currently hunting for Matchstick and a Ahsoka fighter for my daughter. (why let the boy have all the fun?).

My 3yr old managed to bite/snap the missles on ObiWan's fighter and put a good bite mark into the Kashyye Trooper's face mask. Thanks kid.
