This thread seems rather successfull in the SAGA section, so I thought I'd start one here. As you pick up new items from the OTC collection, list them here. I'll get things started ...
This week, I picked up:

VOTC - Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa

OTC - Dagobah Wave (Luke Skywalker, Yoda, R2-D2, Spirit Obi-Wan), X-Wing Pilot Luke Skywalker

Galactic Heroes - Han & Leia, Luke & R2, Vader and Obi-Wan

What have you all been lucky enough to find at your local stores lately?

Re: Recent Acquisitions - OTC Style

As Long as such a thread exists, would it not also be useful to include what store you found them at, (and what part of the country you love in if it's not apparent in your profile). I didn't realize the "Galctic Heroes" were out!

Anyway, I found:

OTC Bespin and Dagobah Waves, Wal-Mart, Dallas

Re: Recent Acquisitions - OTC Style

Today at a Meijer they had up on the high shelf OTC Boba Fett, Stormtrooper, R2, 3PO, Wicket, Cloud Car Pilot, Lobotx2, Obi Wan. I grabbed Boba, Stormtrooper, R2 and 3PO. The check yourself out scanner couldnt price them so the lady working there grabbed one to ring it up. I told her I had 3 more with me and she rang one up for $3.00 so I told her again I had 3 more and she rang all 4 up for $9.00 and told me to move on so more people could get through the line

Re: Recent Acquisitions - OTC Style

I have seen all of the OTC figures (Dagobah, Bespin, and repacks) up to (but not including) the TIE pilot. All of these were at various Wal-Marts. I have also seen the OTC X-Wing, TIE, and Vader's TIE at TRU...no Falcons yet though.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - OTC Style

I picked #1 thru 20 this morning at Wal mart. They had an endcap full of them.


I stopped collecting carded when Ep II came out and sold all of my carded collection from 95 - up. But these OTC cards look GREAT and I'm back on the carded collecting...well only OTC and VOTC;)


Army builders should be quite pleased if you missed out on the Clean Scout Trooper, there were a TON of them shipped within these case...close to 20 pegged at this Wal mart

WHAT WAL-MART???????? TELL ME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today I saw Jedi Luke and Han at the Raynam, MA Wal-Mart but that was it. Everything else was HOF and last year's SAGA figs. I haven't checked the 3 other Wal-Mart's in the area.
Anyway, I only have 3 OTC figs so far: the Biker Scout, Cloud Car Pilot and the Vintage Han- all bought at a comic book store!

Re: Recent Acquisitions - OTC Style

Zukuss__da_Gand it was the North Oxford Wal mart.

They had a huge amount of figures I'd say about 15 cases worth if not more.

I'd image every Wal mart will be getting this many and setting up an endcap

Re: Recent Acquisitions - OTC Style

Two years ago, I wouldn't have worried at finding things eventually (albeit late compared to the rest of the country), but my local WMs, K-Mart, Targets and TRU never got the Star Destroyer wave or Generals wave. Thank goodness I ordered a case that had all of them in one. Funny enough, the Yavin wave hit pretty hard and I got all the Vanders and Antilles I needed. We'll see what happens...

Well, that's far away from Brockton, but maybe, just maybe, I can convince my parents!

Re: Recent Acquisitions - OTC Style

Picked up all 7 of the actual new OTC figures at 2 different Meijers this weekend. One store had a single case of the Dagobah wave, another a single case of the Bespin wave.

As an added bonus, the 4 Dagobah figures were marked $4.99, but they rang up at $5.99. I brought them back to the service desk and they gave me the difference plus $5 because it was a scanning error! Not as good as the 4 for $9 story, but still not too shabby!

I got Ben, Leia, and Han VOTC last week at K-Mart.

Save yourself the trip. I'm sure the Wal marts near you have them but have yet to display them. Be patient you should soon see these end caps at all Wal marts.

Also, all of the cloud city wave figures are gone as of this morning. There are still a bunch of Daga wave figures

[/QUOTE]

i talked to a couple of guys who work the toys at my walmart and they said that out of 5 cases 3 were unacounted for....so they have only 2 cases left to put out.
i talked to the store manager and she said that as far as she knew their was not an endcap planed for the OTC as she just reviewed the planagrams or zonagrams (forgot which one she said). i told her about the other walmarts but she said that not all walmarts follow the same thing. so i don't know if she was just telling me the truth from a certen point of view or not but since i work for retail as security i can say that some managers will not follow what other stores do.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - OTC Style

I picked up the 12-inch OTC Boba Fett today at a local K-Mart. The figure may be one of the best 12-inch figures I've ever seen, but it does have the blue jumpsuit that was seen in early online pics.

Definitely not. There is no universal consistency to this. There will be Walmarts who get a grand total of 6 cases of OTC between now and E3. A perfect example is the recent Marvel Legends endcaps with the extra chase figures. Over the last month I went to 8 Walmarts looking for these things and talked to employees at most. Only 3 got the endcaps, a few never even got the newest series in regular cases.

Sorry that was a little off topic, but I think it applies.
