Re: WalMart Taunts me

I knew that I shouldn't have skipped scumming this past weekend.

Headed over to WM at lunch. Found SA Fisto & Mace on the pegs, infact there were several of each. But no new figures to be seen. No Teth, no Yellow BD. Argh. To make matters worse, the Clone Wars pegs were now stuffed with ugly orange Legacy figures. I took home a SA fisto. I will get Mace another day.

Target and TRU were sparse and had nothing to report.

Target is Lame

Nothing new to report.

However for those who keep an eye on GI Joe, if you could keep an eye out for 2 jungle vipers, I'd appreciate it. Some army builder has nabbed them all from my targets.

Also the next wave of MU seems to have hit target,though I didnt spot anything I know folk are looking for.

Re: Nuthin\' much new

I would have liked another Jabba's Throne to open, but $$$ is tight & they appear to have dried up at all the WalMarts near me. I can wait, though...I have to pick up Lost Final Season & there's quite a few books coming out I wait to p/u. Starting to see the snowspeeder coming back in stock at Target if anyone's still looking...Besides it & the cloud car, the other repacks seem to be shelf-warming.

Re: Nuthin\' much new

Saw the Slave1 set in Manassas today. Its neat but I really only want the droid and he aint worth $100. Didnt see anything else new. However target had an AOTC Tusken Raider mom and kid. It was marked $2 so I picked it up for the interesting aspect of where its been all these years.

Re: Nuthin\' much new

Easy pass for me...only want the Slave 1 in ESB colors(which we all know will be an inevitability)...sure don't want another Jedi starfighter(geez). Somebody I know found chase figs. & Vinatge wave 2 at Catonsville TRU. I'm waiting since I don't want to give Hasbro $10 for repacks, even though the cards are the allure.

Re: Nuthin\' much new

The Columbia TRU is moving to a new location in October. They are liquidating their stock and everything is marked down 20% (basically now the same price at Walmart/Target). Thought I would give everyone a heads up.

Re: Nuthin\' much new

Well considering they haven't been all that hard to find - and we all know WM and Target will get these later Vintage waves in decent quantities (particularly with Xmas coming up) - seems to me better to just wait.

Of course - the scarcity of Boba Fett has been a little odd - but that'll change.

Now if you're buying into the whole UGH thing again - then maybe its worth it. I did back during the SAGA line - but not this time. Just not worth the headache. If I find them, I find them. But no more daily morning runs just for those things.

Re: Nuthin\' much new

I'm going to chime in agreement with Anakin 21...the current Vintage wave 2 is horrendous(the Palpatine laughable), and not IMO worth $10 plus tax. I'm on a budget for collecting like many folks, and these guys just ain't worth it...maybe if they were NEW characters, etc. The cards are neat for me(I'm essentially NOT an opener), but not 10 bucks worth of neat by any stretch of the imagination. I'm not going super nuts on UGH foil, either. Frankly, I'm more excited by CW...since at least they're tackling new characters besides reinserting Plo, Mace, etc. And yes, Boba was hard to find at 1st, but he's in the next several assortments.

Re: Nuthin\' much new

I really want a couple of Magnaguards, so if I see them,
I'll pick them up.
I can always return them later on if I find them cheaper at Target.

I've learned to just get things when I find them, because I may never see them again.
And to save ALL receipts.
I do alot of returning, and price adjustments.

Definitely some truth to that Flacks - though surprisingly during the last line that seemed to apply more to the CW figures than anything else. I have a sneaking suspicion the same will hold true this time around as well.

Like jedisquared said - the new figures being tackled in the CW line (which - IMHO are pretty cool!) always seem to be somewhat harder to find than the other characters in other lines. Though even now, the initially harder to find figures (Pre Viz for example) seem much easier to find than initially so.

And I really do think Vintage will be pretty easy to pick up on average (UGH aside). I remember being able to get nearly the entire previous Vintage lines on clearance at Target near season's end. Granted, they were pricer, and were clam cased, but I suspect the same will be true for most figures from that line.

Of course - I may be proven totally wrong - in which case I'll be scrambling for trades!

Re: Nuthin\' much new

...and we're here to hopefully help each other(likes & dislikes aside). I didn't see anything new at WalMart or Target. Glen Burnie TRU had 1XRise of Boba Fett priced at 109.99(pass), Legacy of the Dark Side 2-packs(double pass at 18.00 @ plus tax-ah nooo!), new Hasbro SpeedStar sets...and more interesting-ESB mugs & Tins.

Re: Nuthin\' much new

Saw the legacy 2 packs down in fredericksburg today. Neat, but $18 is way too pricey for repacked figures. though would be nice to have an opener precyborg grevious.

I\'m sick of this

Went by WalMart and I see that nothing has changed in the past week.

The pegs are now clogged with all of the Legacy figures in new packaging that didn't move in their old packaging. The new Clone Wars figures moved quickly and not the repacks from that line are clogging the remaining pegs. I don't even know when I will see new figures now.

Plus the Deluxe Clone Wars figures are now $16.97 at WM.

Not good.

Re: I\'m sick of this

You clearly have more discretionary income than me, Jedi 073, to shell out $10 plus tax...when Target & WalMart will have them for 7.49 soon. This wave is just unexciting to me for some reason.

Re: I\'m sick of this

I've see the wave in person and its awsome.....but if you find them at toysrus or walmart/ target whats the diffrence????? I know you hit all the same stores i do in the area and with the exception of the severn super walmart no one is going to get theses figures any time soon all of the pegs are filling up quick. I would rather find them and price adjust them at toys...which they will do then to pass and wait for them.

Here in NoVA the situation seems a little different. Most of the stores I frequent have sold through Wave 1 of the Vintage, but are clogged up with Legacy and CW repacks. And they've all be great at not putting Legacy & CW figures on pegs reserved for Vintage. So you see 8+ pegs nearly empty, next to 12+ pegs of overstuffed Legacy/CW figures.

So if anything, the newer product around my area is likely to be Wave 2 Vintage. All the more reason to just wait it out IMHO.

Im with you jedisquared - pricing is definitely a big factor for me this season (and was last season as well).

Discount helps too, since I work there.

Re: I\'m sick of this

Sorry olpc...early bird gets the worm. Yes, I scored all of Vintage wave 2 in foil plus Boba Fett from wave 1(left Solo, Luke & Vader). Also had multiples of non-UGH wave 2. Received my Sideshow 12" Emperor Palpatine today as well...so it was a good SW day overall.

Re: I\'m sick of this

No rub meant or intended(hopefully not taken that way). My luck hasn't been too hot til today...I guess I was allowing myself a small gloat. I frequent that WalMart almost every day...it's about the only place I can hit before work. From what I'm reading at other sites...WalMart has started putting out cases of wave 2 at many sites.
