Yeah, that episode was nearly 100% action. Too many Jedi though. But it was interesting seeing them get their butz handed to them.

I was actually hoping to see them "lose" this battle considering they seem to win all the others. It was cool that they had Waxer and Boyle in their ARF armour.

Ran by TRU.

They have the TurboTank at $80. not bad. There are a bunch of AT-TE's @ $99. I'm still waiting for them to go on sale again. They also have a bunch of Crumb Gunships.

I picked up the Rishi Moon BP there today. They also had hte Gelagrub BP and Endor. Passed on those. Nothing new at Target/Walmart Germantown.

Re: Recent Acquisitions & Local Finds -- VA/MD/DC V.9

Saw a pallet with 6 or 7 boxes of AT-ST's tonight at a 24hr Walmart, funny thing is they are labeled as Clone Wars on the case. There was also one dewback on the shelf. No clue if these will be put out yet or if they still need to find a home.

Received ANH wave from HTS, corners bent on 5 out of 8. Really like this wave, actually more than ROTS.

Old info, but Dewbacks are available from walmart.com site-to-store. They had 778 left. My local WM had none.

I spotted R2, Rotta Ahsoka, and a Droideka in the new packaging for the first time at TRU in G'Burg. Something tells me that I just missed Matchstick.



They have Gunships on top of the shelves in shipping boxes (labeled gunships), but none on the display shelves.

Re: Recent Acquisitions & Local Finds -- VA/MD/DC V.9

Those repacks are not in the initial CW wave with Matchstick & Padme. Try EntertainmentEarth.com for case breakdowns...I find them very helpful.

Re: Recent Acquisitions & Local Finds -- VA/MD/DC V.9

Yes TRUs seem to be incredibly well-stocked in everything except the latest waves of basic figures.

For example, the Fairlakes TRU has vehicles, unpacked and still in boxes above the shelves and running the full length of both sides of the aisle. Incredibly impressive.

And while their pegs are filled w/ figures - its nearly entirely all early CW waves.

Burke WM had the AT-STs on the rear endcap by the SW section. Also had the Dewback exclusives. No new basics though.

Re: Recent Acquisitions & Local Finds -- VA/MD/DC V.9

At Walmart I spotted the AT-ST on another aisle. I think that I might have also spotted the Dewback pack, but it was still in the shipping package listed as SW Creature and Figure.

Re: Recent Acquisitions & Local Finds -- VA/MD/DC V.9

Yeah, it was Germantown. They didn't have the dewback set up, so hopefully they found a spot for them. That AT-ST's are on a separate aisle, but you can find them easy enough.

Re: Recent Acquisitions & Local Finds -- VA/MD/DC V.9

1st off...great meeting you, Glassman at Columbia Target. Should be a great w/e for the hunt: Severn SuperWalMart finally got some Legacy stock-2 cases of ROTS(probably all gone by now due to two other friends, but they said they put even more out later. Severn also restocked cloner two-packs(Echo, etc.) Dewbacks, BAD 2-packs & AT-ST's. Ellicott City had ROTJ wave & Grey Ugnaught. My friend found ANH wave(all gone) at north Glen Burnie Target.

Re: Recent Acquisitions & Local Finds -- VA/MD/DC

Great to finally place a face to your name too.
I usally ask anyone I see if they are on the boards
but have gotten use to only runnin into scalpers so I
got out the habit of asking.
But I was just about to say the words when you asked me.
Cyclone, I found the walker at Columbia wal mart this morn so I didn't
make it out to Gtown.

Just glad you got it.

They did put the dewbacks on display. I'm mostly just Clone Wars stuff now. So I passed.

All of those you mentioned, minus Leesub, were at the Laurel Wal Mart around 7:30 tonight. I think I left at least 1 of each.

Re: Recent Acquisitions & Local Finds -- VA/MD/DC

Went to Germantown Target and Walmart today. Nothing new at WM. Occ droids, Dewbacks and AT-STs are slow to move it appears. Nothing new otherwise.

Target at a lot of Wave 6 figures (Luminara, Argyus, Thire, and ATT Driver). They also had the new OBI and Dooku Speeder deluxe figures. Anakin on a bug appears to the Deluxe Pegwarmer. Even the crab droid moves better.

I found them both at the Target in Germantown tonight. I almost missed them, but I remember someone said they saw it on an endcap. So I checked and sure enough it was on the end of a different aisle than the rest of the figures.

Odd thing was that these two packs are $24.99 while the other BPs are just $23.99. With the exception of Matchstick, I am pretty much all caught up until the end of the year.

I went. It was cool, but a little scary that all the "props" were really replicas.
