Re:Area News

Returned from a visit with family in New Hampshire to find my order of Wave 7 from Brian's Toys waiting for me.
(as well as a bunch of Halo figures I won off eBay)

Been a while since I last bought anything Star Wars related.

Re:Area News

It boggles my mind tha state of things around here. Besides a few lucky finds the TRU in Gaithresburg seems to hold on to the SAME figs from months ago and the Target at Sam Eig is no better. I hope the new SW stuff shows up soon...really am liking that Republic Attack shuttle

Re:Area News

I hate to say it Rinz, but this is way the Spring/Early Summer is like. It was the same during the past two years that I have collecting. No one is buying, so the pegs are idle. The only thing that is good, is usually after a few months, WalMar will put figures on sale for like $6 or even $4.50 to clear out stuff for the fall.

But these Spring waves of figures are really hard to find due to this. I know that last year for the Clone Wars, it was the Bly,Aayla,MagnaGuard,Fire Fighter wave and the Sidious, Tx-20, Stone, Hondo Waves that where nearly impossible to find. I never did see TX-20 or Sidious in the wild. I had to eBay them.

I hear you the same thing happened when I was in Omaha. I saw the Sidious wave ONCE. I happened to be up in Frederick doing some shopping at the Super Walmart and they had one of those 4 sided set ups with figs all around. The Sidious wave was there and I got what I needed but I never saw those figs again. I guess on the good side I can save money but I know the fall is gonna be killer when everything starts showing up....

Re:Area News

I remember last summer that the Germantown Target was completely void of Star Wars figures for over a month.

Re:Area News

Haven't seen anything new on pegs around here. Even stores with mostly empty pegs aren't reordering.

Re:Area News

This is going to be the undoing of the hobby...... If they dont keep new product out there and stop putting the same figures in evry case more and more people will lose intrest in this all together

Bingo. That's me. I haven't seen any new vintage series in probably 5 months.

I was just at Arundel Mills yesterday... didn't think to check FYE!
It seems like FYE is the hidden sweet spot for Vintage....I found my Fordo and Barriss at FYE in Charlotte. Ironically it seems only the large FYEs at outlet malls have toys anymore. I was very sad when the FYE at Lake Forest downsized

Re:Area News

I went by TRU in Rockville Today. I picked up a 2nd Season 3 Ahsoka for $10.51. Ugh. Considering that she's a favorite of my Daughters and won't be re-released in the foreseeable future, I felt I should pick up a spare.

They also had a Cmdr Wolffe. I left him on the pegs (up hight and towards the back). So if anyone really really needs him, he should be good for a while.

I also spotted that Horn in the head Cantina Alien from the TVC line. Looks like I missed Fordo.

Re:Area News

Well, it was $9.99+ tax. Ended up at $10.51, but that's Rockville prices.

I did stop by my Target on Monday looking for 4th of July stuff. They did put out a case of TCW figures. But these we all repacks. Embo, Flame Thrower Trooper, etc..

Re:Area News

Noticed new TVC and CW figures hitting at various Targets. Mostly scraps, but they're now out there in the wild.

Re:Area News

I ran by RIO Target hoping to find Fordo. No, he's gone. If fact it was pretty sparse.

I did snag a Castas Speeder Bike at TRU. They even had Ponds on the pegs (Gaithersburg). I passed on the other Mini Rigs for now. Although I might get that Clone Speeder Scout.

Re:Area News

Found a Hoth Leia at TRU - covered in dust but otherwise in MOMC condition! Must have been stashed away somewhere.

Pretty happy since this was a gap I needed to fill.

Saw the new Legends figures at Target as well - someone attempted to hide the Spacetrooper and Death Star Gunner. I moved them back to where they belong.
