Re: Recent Acquisitions - SAGA Edition! v2

Hopefully soon, I've only seen them once here and never again

I have seen plenty of the Carkoon wave at Targets. I was able to complete the Hoth wave with finds at a few different Walmarts.

I found Leia, Han and Boba Fett about 3 weeks ago. Found the AT_AT Driver, Veers and a snowtrooper yesterday. Found Vader today.

Anyone know what the Vader variant is supposed to be?

I believe one is in his bubble standing and the other is in a walking motion.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - SAGA Edition! v2

I found the Hoth wave at Target and an extra AT-AT driver. I only wanted these 9 figures and that's all they had. My lucky day!

$7 per figure sucks.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - SAGA Edition! v2

The prices do suck, but the figures (at least the new ones) are worth it. Ive got all of the Carkoon wave (their all sitting on the pegs over here) and Im patiently awating for Hoth.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - SAGA Edition! v2

To my surprise, I picked up Han Carbo, Boba, and Bib at Target and Snowtrooper and Derlin at Wal*Mart today. I was happy to see these in person as my area is a barren wasteland 90% of the time. This was in the afternoon since I can't do the hardcore rise at dawn toy runs. For you TF collectors, I also picked up the new Alternators (Prowl, Blue Tracks, Skids, and Sunstreaker). I'll post in the Alternator thread too.


Oh yeah, I also saw the Unleashed battle packs (minus the Cody one) and the 4 SW TFs. Color me unimpressed.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - SAGA Edition! v2

Well yesterday I was very lucky. After a two month dry spell, and me giving up through December, I found nearly everything I wanted in one sweep.

Target:

Leia and Han from the Carkoon wave. Leia had the Obi holo and Han had the Han holo.

Walmart:


Vader transformer, which is really very cool. I like it.

General Veers - with Stormie holo
Snowtrooper - with a Boba Fett Holo
Major "Cliff" - with Amidala holo
AT Driver - with a Vader Holo

Also picked up the Vader chopper, since Anakin/Vader is my focus on collecting.

No Vaders, no R2s but I was very happy with what I found!

Re: Recent Acquisitions - SAGA Edition! v2

I picked up most of the Hoth wave today as well, I found remnants at WM, and picked up Veers, Derlin, and an AT-AT driver - and left behind R2-D2, another Veers and AT-AT driver, as well as Rieekan, and 2 snowtroopers, oddly not a single Vader or power droid...so the only one I am hunting for now is that power droid...

Re: Recent Acquisitions - SAGA Edition! v2

Found the entire Hoth wave over the weekend @ a Target on opening morning.
You ask who is short packed in this case.
Well from what I saw and since there are now 8 new figures in this case.
Here is what I saw on the pegs which matched EE

Star Wars - The Saga Collection 3 3/4-inch Basic Action Figure Assortment Wave 2 contains 12 individually packaged action figures based on the Battle of

Hoth: 2x General Veers with Removable Armor and blaster (Saga #7)
2x Major Bren Derlin (Saga #8)
2x AT-AT Driver with blaster (Saga #9)
1x R2-D2 with Rebel travel accessories (Saga #10)
2x Snowtrooper with blaster (Saga #11)
1x General Rieekan with blaster (Saga #12)
1x Darth Vader with lightsaber (Saga #13)
1x Power Droid with Assistant Droid and scanning accessories (Saga #14).



I was able to get 2 of each except for Vader. Brought the second set to my buddy who collects in Colorado Springs.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - SAGA Edition! v2

Is the standing Vader still shipping?

I would like to get one since the cape on the walking Vader covers a lot of the card background.

The one I got was standing. DO you know if this is the chaser variation meaning this is the one that came out first?

Re: Recent Acquisitions - SAGA Edition! v2

HUGE SCORE for me this early AM!


Found the entire Hoth Wave minus Vader!


Picked up multiples of AT-AT Driver, Snowtroopers, General Veers and others!..

Ironic that yesterday I went to 15 stores in and around my hometown and spent about $25.00 in gas and found nothing. I stop by my local and closest Walmart this am on my way into work and I score!

Re: Recent Acquisitions - SAGA Edition! v2

Nice find today for you.
When I found the 2 sets over the weekend only one vader was found. This suprised me as I thought I was the first in the store as the pegs where packed.

I wouldn't term either one a "chaser" variation.

I think the standing one was the one released first. What is your date stamp on the package?

A chase figure is one that is not in every case assortment. So, unless that Vader was a repaint or a different mold it would not be a chase. It is definately a packaging variation though.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - SAGA Edition! v2

A friend had an extra Saga Boba Fett, so I got that from him yesterday. I'm now complete on Carkoon and Hoth, hopefully I can get a bit of a breather before Geonosis.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - SAGA Edition! v2

Just received my Carkoon set (minus Chewie) from kbtoys.com, all in good shape. Bib's card is a little bent, but I'm an opener so BFD. Shipping cost me 73¢ more than the 9% Chicago sales tax.

Alls I found was the third Ti Series 5-pack (raw metal Milennium Falcon) on Saturday. Hoth wave hit in my hometown, nothing in San Antonio that I have seen, but I have not been looking yet so I hope to find this wave soon.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - SAGA Edition! v2

My first Saga purchase, omfg woot!

Picked up General Veers, and he's every little piece of perfection I thought it would be since the first pictures came out. Very satisfied.

Too bad the AT-AT Driver wasn't there, I'll check back another time.

Hoth should be around my area soon. Those in upper Mich have seen/gotten these.
