Waterford Meijer: a few VOTC Bens and Hans

Waterford KMart (Dixie Hwy): 3 12" Bobas and 3 12" Lukes priced at $29.99 each (ouch!), several VOTC Bens and Hans

13 and Little Mack Meijer still has VOTC Bens, Han, and a Leia. 13 and Gratiot Toys R Us has Vader's Tie and the new Jedi Council scene. What a piece of junk that is, in my opinion. I decided the keep the $19.99 in my pocket. Wal-Mart at 12 and Gratiot had nothing.

I almost passed on the new Jedi Council sceen as well (Westland TRU had a bunch), but one quick look at the picture of all 6 sets snapped together in a circle made me re-think that....it looks bad ****!! (they could have used a new Yoda though....)

Success!!

I found a lone VOTC Luke at the Bay City Meijer's. Two Obi-Wans and one Han remained there.

The Jackson K-Mart had several 12-inch VOTC Lukes and Boba Fetts. All of the Fetts had a blue tunic...the difference is staggering.

Pretty much struck out everywhere else. But for those of you who collect the McFarlane Sports figures, the newest NFL figures are on the shelves. Guys like Peyton Manning, Ahman Green, Steve McNair and Jamal Lewis are now available.

Coldwater Meijers still has squat. They have to be the only Meijers left that haven't gotten one single OTC item.
Still waiting for a Luke (Dagobah and VOTC).

On the way back from beating on some Lizards in WHFB, stopped at the Pontiac TRU - only OTC found were a few of the Yoda Jedi Scenes, one Falcon, and one XWing. Beyond that, same old stuff.

Stopped by Pontiac Wal-Mart to see if there were any more unleashed Leias around, but they were all gone.... sorry Bill Freely Show!

I also went to a toy/comic show at the Livonia Knights of Columbus. Didn't see anything super new and exciting. Several dealers had the OTC figures ranging in price from $7-$10 each. I did pick up an OTC Boba Fett which was the last one I needed. I also saw several dealers with the Dagobah Luke standing on his hands, priced at $12-15. Lots of MOTU, LOTR, JLA, sports picks, etc. No one had VOTC Luke.

Nothing to report. Was at Meijer on 54th this morning, zip.

I don't scout much these days, but still check when I get the chance. Still have not seen one iota of OTC or VOTC (except for Vader Tie at TRU) in the GR area. We must be at the end of the shipping lines.

We reset the action figures today at the Target in Novi. We got the VOTC figures Leia, Han, and Obi-Wan. Luke was not in the cases we received. We also have the Unleashed Leia and Obi-Wan wave. Also, on the outside aisle (not by the rest of the Star Wars toys) we have the galactic Heroes 2-packs and Millennium Falcon. Almost forgot we got in the 3 12 inch figures as well.

Well, I had a hunch that paid off today. I felt I needed to stop at the Meijer at 23 Mile and Gratiot on the way home today (I never go there on the way home) and sure enough they had 1 VOTC Luke!!

I didn't see it at first because it was laying away from the other SW stuff, lying under other types of figures. I almost missed it.

They had a Ben and a Han too.

My wife just called from the Target over there now. They have the VOTC Ben, Han and Leia and she's getting me the TIE Fighter!! They had 2 (now 1) and they also had 2 X-Wings, which I didn't want.

EDIT:

The TIE Fighter was only $17.99. This thing is in a front-only window box with the panels off and angled behind the cockpit against the back of the box, for those who have not seen it yet.

She also said they had a spot labeled for the Falcon, but none were there.

Brighton Target had Chewie, Snowie Luke, and the Red Stripe Jamacian Beer Clone Unleashed.

They had a ton of Han, Ben, and Leia VOTC. No Farmboy.

The Falcon, Xwing, and Tie were there too.

No GH Chewie and 3PO. Big thanks to my friend and neighbor Jim (some may remember his old screen name as BillFreelysNeighbor), he snagged the Leia Unleashed from the Wixom Target today. Badda Bing.


My wife reported that the Brighton Meijers had R2, 3PO, and Jedi Luke OTC.

NO DAGOBAH yet.

They had basic OTC at the Meijers on 44th and the one on Plainfield a couple weeks ago, so they are in GR, just selling withing a few hours of hitting the pegs no doubt.

Amidst reports of other Targets resetting isles, mine put out fresh cases of the Yavin and Jabba's Palace waves this morning.

Slightly off topic request, can anyone with a reset Target tell me what other lines have space left for them? Notably Toybiz Marvel. Thanks!

Wow, does that mean Target is saying "F-you" to Mattel for clogging pegs with crappy Batman variations? God, I hope so.

Back on track, nothing else new at any of the stores I've been to in Kalamazoo. Walmart still has a glut of early 2004 and both Targets look to be competing with them for who can stock the most old crap. TRU overstocked with Jedi and Carkoon 4-packs, saga screen scenes and Unleashed.

Madison Heights Target had 2 Falcons, a TIE Fighter, and the VOTC Leias, Hans and Bens.

There was also a couple of Tanus hanging there. I picked up one in case anyone needs one...... preferably for a Concept Stormtrooper.

I found the VOTC Luke this afternoon at the Wixom Meijers. There was still 1 left as of 3PM. It was weird because there were 2 Lukes and no other VOTC figures.

K-mart in Saginaw on Gratiot & Center has (2each) the 12" Luke, and Blue Boba Fett, no stormtroopers, they also have The VOTC with no Luke, tons of Galactic Heroes, and the OTC ask Yoda. Nothing interesting as far as the 3 3/4" go.

And I'm also still in need of a still in package Concept McQuarrie stormtrooper if anyone wants me to grab something for a trade.
