Re: I\'m sick of this

Picked up a cool reference book today at Books-A-Million if you're into CW...DK's Star Wars The Clone Wars New Battlefronts. It covers alot of the newer season like the Mandalorian conflict & the rise of Boba Fett. Fun leafing thru the many pages imagining what figures(some already confirmed) that Hasbro will make. Looking forward to Season 3 soon!

super walmart in landsdowne on rt 1 off 695 had a ton of VC wave 1 and 2 with foil I only picked up the sandtrooper and his foil is so off centered it ain't funny but I don't care he'll be opened and joining the ranks of his brothers in arms

if u need the short hair winter soldier, hit up arundel mills walmart. they had 5+ of him, iron patriot, and iron spidey and 3 each of the skrull soldier and wrecker. no mjs.

on the sw side, at the same walmart i picked up the lego landspeeder and from vintage wave 2 foil versions of sidious and sandtrooper and regular versions of sidious, grievous, and the magna guard. no anakin there tho

Re: I\'m sick of this

Damn,
Someone cleaned out all the Magnaguards in my area before I had the chance to clean them out.

I did find one though, and one of each of the other new ones I wanted. Left all the foil cards though. I'm not going to be collecting them.

I did find a Mary Jane though, which was surprising.


Don't know if I should ask for help with the Magnaguards, since you guys have been finding wave 2 in bunches, and we seem to only get one case at a time around here,
or just wait until they show up at Target.

Re: I\'m sick of this

Found a sandtrooper and anakin at walmart last night. Most the cards were bent, but I open so no worries. No sign of magnaguards. If I find them I may pick one up for myself but I'm in no rush. Just hoping I can find another camo arf.

I haven't seen that camo AFR wave since I found mine. All the WalMarts at least are loaded up with the Aurra Sing wave from CW.

Re: I\'m sick of this

I haven't been collecting figures for a while, but the VC has kind of rekindled my interest. I was traveling over the weekend and had some great luck at the Walmart in Lexington, VA on Friday. I was able to pick up the UGH versions of Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Bespin Luke, Commander Cody and the Clone Trooper. I also picked up Pre Vizsla, and later that day found Jodo Kast. I saw, but did not buy the UGH Magnaguard and Hoth Han. I think there was another I passed on but I don't remember what it was.

I stopped by the Lexington WM again today, and they still had 3-4 UGH figures. Vader, Luke, Magnaguard and Han I believe. I wish I had picked up some extras to trade, as I would really like to get the UGH Anakin and Grievous figures.

Re: I\'m sick of this

Well of course - after saying I wasn't going to collect the UGH Vintage figures - I find 6 of them at WM.

I grabbed an extra UGH Anakin and Sidious.

If anyone has an extra MOMC UGH Fett or Grievous - I'll happily trade you for them!

Re: I\'m sick of this

I scored a ROTS VC Grevious with the cloth cape. I really liked that one.

My TCW hunting has soured. WM, Target, and TRU are all pegged up with Wave1 warmers. Not sure when I will see anything new.

Re: Something new

My other two came today. Both destroyed mailers. Bubble crushed on one, and bubble and figure complete separated from cardback on the other. Guess I know which one I'm opening, whether I want to or not.

Re: IN THE AREA

I had ordered my nikito guard from TRU onl;ine and they both came destroyed....shipped them in a bubble Mailer. I sent to yakface a phone number for hasbro i called and complained about my boba fett condition and they gave me a better number than thier stnadard customer service. If you recived a jacked boba fett cll them and complain its the only way there going to change thier ways

I had my wife call and complain - they e-mailed her a return slip and said they would replace. How much do you bet the send the wrong Fett.

Re: Something new

Got 6 Bobba fetts today all but 1 was destroyed.....I'm really pissed at hasbro this time. I needed at least 2 mint. I wanted to get 1 afa graded carded and have one autographed by jeremy bulloch. I did get my 501st clone from side show and has become my new fav amongst all of the clones so far.

Re: Something new

Also got 501st Sideshow clonetrooper(real nice detailing). Received my mail-away Fett today...I fared luckier than most: mailer was dented & a little smushed; card was slightly dented on upper left corner; bubble was more or less ok with one small dinge on left side. May send for 1 more...haven't decided yet. Severn SuperWally got more Vintage wave 2...no foils left.

Re: Something new

I'm really beginning to lose interest here. I haven't been on a good collecting run since Spring. I checked again today and still nothing but peg warmers. I'm getting close to calling it quits on TCW collecting and just picking up the odd figure once in a while.

Re: Something new

Yeah the new battlepacks are pretty nice. Not sure when they will ever show up at retail with all the others hogging up shelf space. Haven't seen any sign of the camo arf wave since they first showed up.

Re: Something new

Well I've definitely adjusted from being a completist to just picking up the new releases. Unfortunately, alot of TCW line right now is exactly that - repacks.

But the few new figures have been outstanding. Though once you find those, there's really not much else to do (other than break your own rules!).

Its been out of boredom that I've basically given in to hunting for the Vintage UGH line, otherwise I'd have nothing to actually look for right now. (talk about consumerism at its finest!)
