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....
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.
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....
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!!!
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.
They had two sets of CW Wave 3 at Target/FH. When I left there was a Cody, Oddball, Super Droid still on the pegs.
Found most of Legacy 4? at Wally/FH. No Saleucami Clone and no Yaddle though. Happy Hunts!
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!
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!!!
Was at the Target at Libbie Place and picked up the 2nd wave of Clone Wars and one of the IG-86 from Wave 3
They also had the Exclusive Target Commander Fox Helmet that is like the Plain White but with Fox's voice on it.
I picked up Ashoka, Oddball, and the IG-86.
There were a few of those left as well as the Galactic Heroes Sarlaac Pit box
Thanks much man! Look forward to seeing you again! BTW, hit Wally/Midlo at lunch and the newest waves of TV's are starting to hit the area. I picked up a Tie Defender, Rebel Transport, Imperial Landing Craft, Droid Gunship, MTT. So if any of you are into those, start lookin. Happy Hunts!
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!
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!
Was out at TRU/Midlo again today and noticed they had the Clone Wars Bust Ups sets. They also had a bunch of the new comic packs so I picked up the pack with the red & black Sith Witch. Also reminder that some of the 501st & Rebel Legion guys & gals will be out there this Saturday 11/22 Noon-2pm to promote the Toys for Tots campaign this Xmas. Come and buy a Star Wars toy to donate!!!
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!
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.
