Re: Midnight Madness

I picked up two (I was thinking about trading one for the FB Marine), but I figured I should put it 'back in the water' so I cancelled one of them Tuesday night. So, some should be back on SWS anytime, I'll PM you if I see any....

Re: Midnight Madness

Thanks for the post man! I thought someone on here may have got more than one and be able to share with a fellow longtime scummer. It's ironic, I am a Clone Airborne with the 501st Legion so you can imagine how hyped I was when I thought I might be able to score my namesake. I'd been checking the SW Shop regularly but like so many others, I missed out. I still dont understand the mentality over at GG!?! Everyone wants Clones, Stormies but not many give a rat about a Dengar or Princess Leia. They should make those type of busts the exclusives on limited runs and leave the armor to mass runs of 5000 or more. Same thing with the Galactic Marine or Gree, Cody, etc. Just dont understand that as all it does is inflate prices on the secondary market to extraordinary amounts. Anyone else order a second bust I can make a claim on? I'll pay you more than you paid for it, thats for sure.

Re: Midnight Madness

I'm not the biggest fan of GG's practices either, but I think everything will work out on this bust. If they are holding back another 1k for PGMs then I think getting one shouldn't be a problem. Like I said, if I get access to another, then its yours....

Ditto at the Short Pump Walmart.
They also had the Keychains and the Power Wheels Clone Quad cycle. Picked up 2 of the 501st figures.

Re: Midnight Madness

Saw at TRU/Midlo a couple Anakin's Modified Jedi Starfighters on the shelf. The one with the big ol engines on the front. I bought that ship back in 03 I think it was when it came out in the "original" Clone Wars line so I passed but maybe someone else on here is looking. Things have been a little dry around here as of late with pegs still crammed with all the stuff from July. Happy Hunts!

Re: Midnight Madness

Picked up a Holo-Dooku at Target/Hull. The Wal-Mart on Hull had TFU sets as well...nothing too much to report on. Is anyone else getting TFU or getting the Trooper fig at Gamestop?

Re: Midnight Madness

Holo Dooku? I think he's in Legends Wave 3? I'll have to start going out at lunch again to look for that wave! I'm gonna get TFU for the Wii so I can saber battle my kids with those remotes! I didnt pre-order the game so I'm probably outta luck on the Stormie. There's so many of those stores around here though, I might hit one or two on lunch tomorrow on the off chance I can score but I'm not gonna put alot of effort into it. Happy Hunts!

Re: Midnight Madness

I pre-ordered the game because I was so looking forward to it. However after reading from the folks who received the game early (newegg.com sent it out almost a week early!!) that is 10 - 15 hours at MOST I just can't justify spending 60 bucks on something that short. Disappointment abounds.

Re: Midnight Madness

Ok, so I wasn't entirely crazy thinking that the Dooku was a bit odd. As for the game, I didn't preorder either, but that's sad about the short time. I have the Wii, so I am sure I'll have a great deal of fun with the sabers.

Re: Midnight Madness

I got mine for free since I trooped over there for the midnight madness.
Nice Fig

Re: Midnight Madness

Able to get the fig at the Commonwealth Gamestop. YW, you're right about the playtime length, but I am going to ramp up the difficulty setting. I am still having a fantastic time playing this. Ah, the therapy of simulated sith violence! Force wrecking ball, indeed!

Re: Midnight Madness

Well, I've played TFU and really enjoyed it. I've gotten most of the way through and now my girls are playing it. I too have a Wii so its really fun to lightsaber battle. I didnt score the Commander fig but I'm not missing it. I've reached a point where I've pretty much run outta space to collect anything more!!!

Re: Midnight Madness

Saw the Lars' Homestead pack at the midlo TRU. I really think I am going to skip this one-just not calling to me. That's about it for sightings. Good luck out there!

Re: Midnight Madness

Was looking at the front page here and noticed they had a pic of the Darth Maul Titanium fig. I never saw these at retail around here until now so take note. If you want one, head to Ollie's Discount Warehouse over at the Meadwodale Shopping Center in Meadowbrook (Hopkins & Cogbill past the McDonalds) They had about a dozen of them for $5 along with the Cylon fig, Clone Trooper (blue & white) & Clone Trooper (silver). I was over there Saturday.

Wave 2 - Clone Wars

So yesterday at Target - Commonwealth Center Parkway I found Commander Cody. Today at Target - Short Pump I found Ashoka and Oddball (They still had 1 Oddball left).

Just thought I'd throw it out there.

Re: Wave 2 - Clone Wars

Maybe so Yoda, the older I get, the more I lose track! Hit Wally/Midlo earlier today and they had remnants of the above waves all mixed in with the other stuff. Nothing at Target/midlo. Iwas hoping when they put their toy dept. back together, it would come heavily stocked but I really havent seen much at that store over the past week or two. Met a granny rootin the pegs at Wally and had to wait my turn for two soccer moms rootin at Target! It's a rare occassion I actually see kids hittin the pegs, almost always moms!

Re: Wave 2 - Clone Wars

sorry man, not to familiar with the stores of that area as I'm about 40 miles up the road. Hey folks, the Wally/Midlo has the recent CW wave (Ahsoka) and the most recent legends wave (organa's) along with batlepacks for B'omarr Monastery (sic) and the shield generator assualt. I think I'm gonna cut back on my collecting heavily since I've run outta space. I go out for lunch and hit these stores for something to do to get outta the office and a little exercise though so I'll still report what I see. I cant really stomach $8 figs anymore. You all saw the Lar's Homestead I assume. $50 for 3 figs and a plastic dome!!!

Re: Wave 2 - Clone Wars

Went to Hull Wal-Mart and saw the CW Gunship and the A-Wing...they both look awesome. I'll definitely be picking those up soon. Good luck out there, friends!

Re: Wave 2 - Clone Wars

I was down at Wally/Chester last night for vanilla wafers (of all things) and noticed they too had all the new Titaniums. Not on the pegs though but on a hanging endcap in a special TV's box. Happy Hunts!

Re: Wave 2 - Clone Wars

TRU/Midlo had all of CW wave 3. The wire bin had probably 2 or 3 cases in it. I picked up Ventress & Dooku but the whole wave was there mostly in that metal bin where they just dump them all. Happy Hunts!

Re: Wave 2 - Clone Wars

Stopped into Target/FH on the way home last night for some errands and saw something pretty cool. Up front by the playing cards, they had a Boxed set of SW miniatures. Had about a dozen figs in it along with a large size Hailfire Droid and Clone Speeder. Looked good. Also had Obi & Yoda CW boxed sets with their respective troopers. I like those and think I'll put them on the Xmas list. Happy Hunts!

Re: Wave 2 - Clone Wars

Hey folks, reminder to watch the Richmond Xmas parade on TV tomorrow 10am. The 501st and Rebel Legion will be marching with several droids as well. Should be about 50 of them. Its broadcast locally on Channel 6 our CBS affiliate here in Richmond but from what I'm told, it'll be broadcast on other stations around the state as well.
