Nice score Billy Ray! I'm holding off for the Hoth Han with "brown" coat. So tell me, is Hoth Han worth picking up?

I spotted a few new deluxe figs at the De Zavala Target this evening. All they had left was 2 Deluxe Super Battle Droid kits & 1 Deluxe Spider-Droid. Still no sign of Deluxe Obi-Wan or Deluxe Jango.

<font size="2" face="arial">Thanks to Billy Ray, I scored Hoth Han this morning. I grabbed the last one but they still had one Anakin SC & a couple of flying R2's left at Westlakes Target. I was going to hold off for the brown coat version but what the heck. So I guess Billy Ray was right: Han's blue coat is pretty.

I found the new deluxe Spider Droid and Super Battle Droid kit at the Target at 281 and Bitters today. There are two of each and of course the cards and bubbles were beat up.

(Thanks Hasbro for the great quality control!) Nothing else new in the 281 area.

Is it just me or is Hasbro shipping the new stuff in really beat up packaging?

Is there such a thing as mint in mint packaging anymore?

I'm still trying to figure out why the Deluxe Spider-Droid & SBD builer are showing up, but not the new Deluxe Obi-Wan or Jango? Heck, they even hit Austin last week!

<font size="2" face="arial">Slip the stockers at Wal-Mart a $20 bill & ask them to "show you the goods."

<font size="2" face="arial">Uh, flying R2 is a new figure. You did find something new. You might have to give it some time though before figures like Hoth Han, Mynock Chewie, Ashla/Jempa, Yoda/Chian, & Aayla Secura are widely available.

I have seen him around, but not in great numbers. He isn't really "flying" off the shelves like the rest of that wave though

(pun intended).

Weekends seem to be a pretty good time to find new stuff, but I have also found new stuff on the weekdays so who's to say. I found Hoth Han and Mynock Chewie last Friday. It's really kind of a gamble.

I haven't seen them marked down, but then I wasn't really checking on them.

I did see the Deluxe Spider Droid and Super Battle Droid maker today at Target on SW Military. Where are the Deluxe Obis and Jangos???

I also stopped by Gamestop and they had their fiures marked down to $.99!! I picked up an extra Royal Guard, Geo-Warrior, Battle Droid, and finally picked up Orn-Free Ta. Not sure if this sale is everywhere or not, I will check the one on Marbach if I get a chance.

seriously what can i do WITHOUT paying them off? everytime i just ask, they say, "uhhhh...we don't have any in the back. We didn't get a shipment this week." and try to bite their ear.

true that R2 is relatively new, but that was last weekend, quite a while after the release date. and the box is good as opened.

Hey Guys. Lets see where to start. I have not seen any price reductions on the TIE Bombers. I will scan one tomorrow to check the price. Still no finds on the deluxe Jango or Obi Wan. I'm sure if I did find them, the card and bubbles would be beat up.

i like yoda:

Wal-Marts and Targets: get trucks in all the time. So it is kind of hit and miss with them. The best thing to do is to call to see if they got anything new in. Hopefully they will have an employee, who has good customer service skills to help you out. Weekends are usually good.

TRU: is going threw remodeling right now. So they may not get anything new in for some time. Again weekends are usually good.

Employees at the retailers: Unfortunately some are there to do their job and go home. They do not care about the customer and will not work with you. Others actually have customer service skill and will try to help you. Be nice and ask questions. Let them know you are interested in SW toys.

Hope this helped you out and good luck.

Nothing new at Wal-Mart on 151 or at Target at Westlakes. Stopped by Gamestop at Marbach and they had no SW figures.

Tommorow is my anniversary and I finally get to open my Master Replicas Anakin F/X lightsaber!!! So happy
grin.gif
My wife ordered it on the sly from KBTOys.com and I inadvertantly intercepted the e-mail confirming the order. She was plenty pissed, but it was an accident. Anyway, the box has been sitting in our closet since last month, calling to me in the middle of the night
wink.gif
At least she decided to let me have it for our anniversary instead of my birthday in July (which was her original plan).

Congrats Billy Ray! I look forward to hearing a review once you have a chance to check out the lightsaber from top to bottom. BTW, you have incredible will-power.

I didn't find anything new today in the 281 area. The TIE Bombers are still full price at the Wal-Mart at 1604 and 281.

At 3 pm, Target on Marbach had one Han Solo Hoth and one Chewbacca. Hid them on top peg in back if anyone wants them.

The Walmart at 1604 and 281 only had one of each of the new figures except for the R2D2 which there were a couple. The Walmart across from Rolling Oaks mall had probably 4 or 5 each of the new figures.

Nothing new at Wal-Mart at 1604 and Culebra. They had several pallets out to be stocked, but no SW stuff on them that I could see. They did have a few newer LOTR figures.

Nothing new Star Wars wise butI did find the new McFarlane Matrix figures at the Electronics Boutique in Rivercenter Mall this morning. They had a ton of Neos but I think I may have gotten the last Trinity.

Good luck my man, I have had pretty good luck at that store. I found Hoth Han and Chewie there, like I said, and they also had the Boba wave then too. It is also the store where I found Ephant Mon, the day that they opened
