Re: Local News

Almost put an order in on HTS the other day, but decided to hold off for now.

BTW, the "SW2009" or "SW2010" codes will each get you 10% off your HTS orders (in case you guys weren't already using them).

Re: Local News

Picked up Ahsoka's starfighter at Target Rio this afternoon. My daughter needs a ship for her girl. Not much else there to report.

Stopped by TRU Gburg. Nothing there. They did have a few cool looking vwings. Plus I spotted a few Vehicles stashed up on the top of the shelves (out of view) that included some cool ones. Corp Tank, Ahsoka, anakin fighters.

Re: Local News

Someone in Frederick reported getting the Rishi station BP at TRU.

I ran by Target/WM. I spotted Luminara, Argyus, Driver BD, and Thire at Target. Nothing new at WM. Was tempted to check out TRU in Gburg but passed.

Re: Local News

Gaitherburg Target actually got some new figs for the first time in at least 3 months. That Wave was ROTJ. I picked up a few but they had at least 1 of everything when I left.

Re: Local News

Not been seeing anything new around here. Need to find ugnaught #2 somehow. HTS has been my main supply lately.

Re: Local News

Two of my collector friends picked up(and one for me...thanks, guys!) the Sandtrooper Dewback Patrol exclusive at the Port Covington WalMart. None left there, but keep an eye out at your local Wally since they've hit!

Re: Local News

Went looking for the $49 AT-TE yesterday at TRU. Not only was it sold out, but the sale ended at 1pm (unknown to me). Drats.

Did pick up KY Leia and a the ewoks at Rio target today for my daughters. Poor son was begging for ships, but those are for Christmas now.

Re: Local News

Picked up a Y-Wing at lunch. It won't be opened until Santa visits. I'm still bitter on missing out the $49 AT-TE last week.

I did see those McQuarie ? Concept figure collections at TRU on Saturday. They actually did look pretty cool. But those are for true collectors, not dad and kids like my family.

The clone fairy visited last night and gifted my son a Lt Thire and Rys.
Cmdr Thire and Lt. Thire now stand side by side.

One bit a good news, they were down to only two battle packs at Target (Jabba and Monastery). So hopefully they will restock soon with one of the ones I am looking for.

Re: Local News

Stopped by the TRU Express at Manassas Mall. They still have the AT-TE for $49.99 till 11/21. So you may want to find out if there is an express store around you Cyclone.

The only figures they had were Pond, but there were several CAT droids and Fighter tanks as well.

Re: Local News

Looks like the nearest TRU express is in Columbia, which is too far.

Thanks though.

Re: Local News

Returning the one I also got at Severn...a piece of crap for $45. Joints are loose, can't pose or stand worth a darn, the one leg lug broke upon inspection, and the figure is lame with little articulation. But I love the dewback, BTW. Columbia TRU had the McQuarrie sets for those into repacks(they do look nice all lined up), and Columbia Target had the CW Y-wing.

If anyone could snag me an AOTC Concept Anakin and Obi Wan (since I believe that's around the time that wave came out) I'd be much appreciative. I'll pick it up or pay for shipping.

Re: Local News

Agreed...good solid plastic; has a nice heavy weight to it. Looks more like Ep. I Dewie than SE, though.
