I went to the Wal-Mart on De Zavala this afternoon & all they had were Destroyer Droids, Jango Pilots, & deluxe Geonosians. However, the Target at De Zavala still had quite a few $9.88 clearance priced 12" stuff (Dooku, SBD, & Zam), as well as all of their deluxe stuff (accessory sets included) marked down to $7.99. They had an Arena Battle set, a Death Star set, deluxe Yoda, deluxe C-3PO, etc.

I went the the Wal-Marts at 1604/Nacogdoches, 1604/281, and 281/Jones Maltsberger. They all had about the same figures: the Destroyer Droid wave and Teebo/Eeth Koth wave. The 1604/281 did have the new Action Fleet. Targets in the 281 area didn't have anything new.

Even though we haven't seen the Anakin/Boba wave at Wal-Mart yet, like other cities have, it sure is good to see new stuff at Wal-Mart for a change! Those guys can't be too far around the corner I hope.

I'm with you Billy Ray. I am glad to see that they are getting new stuff, but I am worried about the amount though. They are sure getting alot of the Destroyer Droid/Jango Pilot wave. I hope they don't get stuck with too much of it, or we may not see any new waves there for sometime.
Now if TRU and KB would start getting new stuff we would be set.

Viper. I have not seen the Mace Windu Unleashed in sometime. The last place I saw it was at KB. I will let you know if I see any.
Did you also need the Darth Tyranus Unleased as well?

Tiller,
Haven't really collected the Unleashed line but thought the Mace Windu looked cool (at least the pics on the internet). Thought if I could find one hidden somewhere I'd get it. Looking forward to Leia and Vader Unleashed. Got caught up with my Action Fleets over the weekend so doing pretty well. Just need a few Star Trek figs and I'll be good to go for a while...but that's a topic for a different board. Thanks in advance -- Viper

BTW, if anyone still needs an Anakin speeder/Dooku speeder set, the Super Target at 1604 & Bandera had quite a few earlier today.

Billy Ray, I agree with you. It's nice to find new figures in our area for a change. I'm just glad I found Aayla.

<font size="2" face="arial">Hey GS, do you know if that is the big Collector's Expo that they used to have regularly there (they have the same one in Austin)?

It could be the same, but I am not sure. It's the big one that is held in the main hall. GS out

I think I am going to check it out, but I probably won't get there till late. My son has a b-day party and a soccer game that day. My understanding is that it is only Saturday right?

The website for the Civic Center says they had one in January, did anybody go to that one?

Super Target at Bandera and 1604 had Anakin and Dooku speeder bikes today.

Wal-Mart at I10 and DeZavala had tons of new Action Fleet.

Target at I10 DeZavala had several Arena accessory sets.

I've got the Race for the Cure to attend on Sat so won't be at comic con. Never been to one here but sounds interesting.

Looks like the Yoda lightsaber has hit retail, at least in AZ. I am going out there on business next week, hopefully I will find the Anakin/Boba wave...keeping my fingers crossed.

Super K-Mart at 410 and Marbach (which is closing) has their SW stuff on sale for 50% off! This works out to $2.74 per figure. Great news if you are looking to bolster your army of Battledroids (or Senator Jar-Jars)

Didn't see any today at the one I went to, pretty much all they had were basic figures and some deluxe.

The day of bargains continues though, I found Saga KAM and beardless Endor Trooper for $2.99 at Target on SW Military. The weird thing was that this sale appeared to be only on Collection 2 figures...

Hey guys. Nothing new to report on this side of town. Just the same old stuff.

I am going to try to make the Collector's Expo on Sat. I went to the one in January, but was not to impressed. Not as much SW stuff as I had expected. Hopefully this will be better.

Kind of off topic, but has anyone seen the LOTR Gollum figure out there anywhere? I just read that it was spotted in Dallas.

Billy Ray. I have not seen him yet. If I do find one, I'll hide him for you.
Hey great job on the Mundi.

Your KAM figure turned out great! Good job! Regarding the toy show this weekend, is it being run by a guy named Dale? He used to run a toy show at that location every now & then (real nice guy). If so, his toy shows are usually kind of small.

Yes, that's him. He runs a real nice toy show but as far as Star Wars stuff is concerned, the pickings are usually kind of slim. I might go to the show anyway in the hopes that someone will have the new Anakin figure for a reasonable price.

I tried to go. I had to go to work this morning, so I figured I would go when it open. I got there a little before 9:00am. To my suprise the end of line to get in was almost to 1604 and about three people wide.
Is the line always that long when it opens? So unfortunately being pressed for time, I decided to hit a few stores and then go to work.

GS,
Thanks for the info. Went to the Wal-Mart at 1604 & Nacogdoches and picked-up last Yoda Lightsaber. They also had 2 Tie Bombers. I was tempted to purchase one but didn't want to endure the wrath of the wife.

TRUs at 1604 & I-35 had a couple of the old "Luke, I am your father" Vader Unleashed if anyone is interested (I'm going to wait for the new one with "removable" helmet).

Hey Billy Ray. I found the LOTR Gollum at the Wal-Mart at 281 and Jones Maltsberger. I hid one behind the 12 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
It was in mint condition. There are still about 5 of them on the pegs. Unfortunately there was no SW to be found.

Tiller, thanks for the heads up on Gollum! I just checked the posts here about a 1/2 hour ago and was afraid he might be gone already. I stopped by my local Wal-Mart (151 at 410) on the way out there and they had several!
For anyone who collects LOTR, they also had the Helms Deep Legolas, Theodin w/Armor, and Sam in Mordor!

If only SW was distributed as well as LOTR stuff, I am not a big LOTR collector, but have some select pieces and think they are very nice.

Well, I went to KB at Ingram today to take advantage of their SW sales. They had gunships marked down to $25 & all of their figures marked down to $3. I picked up another Geonosian with Massiff & a couple of Super Battle Droids. They also had 12" electronic Obi-Wan & Jango marked down to $10! The figure selection at Ingram wasn't too bad (they had Djas Puhr, Clone Trooper Pilot, Destroyer Droid, tons of Pilot Padmes, tons of female Tuskens, Watto, Teemto, etc).

Heh, I posted a couple of questions that force guy answered right above me, if I had just been paying attention. Never mind.


I wonder if KB at Ingram will have any 12" Electronic Jangos left by this weekend...I don't feel like driving all the way over there one day after work this week.

Unfortunately there is nothing new at Wal-Marts and Targets at 10/De Zavala, 1604/281, and 1604/Jones Maltsberger.


Does anyone know where a good place is to buy star cases here in SA? I am looking for the ones that fit the POTF2 cards. How much were they? Thanks.

Tiller, you might try checking Purple Cactus, Heroes & Fantasies, or Alien Worlds for star cases if you need them right away.

Hey guys, did the KBtoys up at Bandera and 410 close, along with that Target? I haven't been out that way in a while and I was just wondering before I drive all the way over there.

No, it's still open. As of Monday, they had a few Gunships, 12" electronic Obi-Wan's, & the usual slew of pegwarmers.
