I'm glad I don't live in GR anymore. A lot less competition for toys in K'zoo and still plenty of stores.

K-Marts here still haven't restocked and I have yet to see the "12 figures.

Meijer on W. Main had 5 VOTC Hans and 4 Obi-Wan's last night.
Walmart on W. Main had 1 lone OTC R2, not the Dagobah version, and a sea of HOF, Yavin, Hoth, and Jabba's Palace figures.

Anyone know when the ESB VOTC wave is due? It's nice being caught up, but I miss actually having something to hunt for.

Great Lakes Target is in the process of resetting...the toys have moved to the other side of the isle closer to where the shoes are....they have the VOTC 12" Luke/Green Suit Fett/ Stormtrooper, they also have the re-done Ask Yoda, OTC TIE, OTC X-Wing, OTC Falcon, Unleashed Luke X-Wing/Chewie/Red Clone, and about 5-6 each of VOTC Han/Leia/Ben....no 3.75" OTC figures.

Great Lakes Meijer has the remains of the OTC Dagobah Wave...

Pontiac Wal-Mart has zip!

Summit Place Target: action figure aisle looks like crap, only a few older figure remnants here and there. Not even close to their reset yet.

Comic City: has the Mattel Batman assortment with Killer Croc, Blue Nightwing, Mr. Freeze and Zipline Batman, plenty of each at $11.99 each

Waterford Meijer: 1 lone Ben VOTC on the pegs

White Lake Wal-Mart: nothing new

Looking for: VOTC Luke, Ultra Humanite from JLA, Tail attck lizard from SMC line

Snagged VOTC LUKE at the Commerce Meijer. They were hidden on the very top shelf. I moved them down to the pegs. Two remain.

Saw an Ultra Humanite at the TRU in Kalamzoo today, so keep checking yours, they're getting the wave.

A single OTC Han at Meijer on Westnege. A whole lotta nothing at both Kalamzoo Targets, although the Westnege store was resetting their isles when I was there.

If you need the VOTC Luke...head over to KB Toys at Great Lakes Crossing. They had about 4-5 Lukes as of 6PM. The bad news is that they are priced at $12.99 each (Ouch!!)

Here are a few good finds as of this morning:

TRU (Linden RD): opened a case of VOTC and it included 2 Lukes, 2 Ben, 2 Han, 1 Yoda and 1 Darth Vader. I had no idea that the ESB VOTC were out already. Snagged the Luke, Yoda and Darth, the rest remained. Yoda looks cool with his yellow snake and cloth robes.

Corunna Rd Wal-Mart: nothing new

Center Rd Target: nothing new

Target at 15 Mile and Coolidge reset their aisles and they have plenty of VOTC Han, Leia, and Obi-Wan. No Luke. They also had one X-Wing ($17.99), 4 Falcons ($49.99), and one 12" Luke.

One aisle over from that, they had the Galactic Heroes 2-packs for $4.99 each. Also, they had the Galactic Heroes Millenium Falcon. Awesome packaging and it comes with C-3P0, Han, and Chewie. 3P0 looks great. The box also has a flap that opens so you can see the Falcon. You can also push a button on the box to hear a sound effect. Very cool item at a price of $29.99.

Coldwater Wal*Mart had the OTC (Boxed) Lightsabers and a bunch of old Saga Crap. They had some good LotR stuff though: 1 Traveling Bilbo, 1 Prologue Elrond, and 1 Prologue Elf Warrior. They had some other stuff, but these were the ones that stuck out. I think they had a Theoden too. There GI Joe stuff is still empty.

Coldwater Meijer as of a couple days ago, still has crap for Star Wars. Their G.I. Joe stuff is filled to capacity and then some with earlier 04 items because they are $2.00 or $3.00 more expensive than Wal*Mart.
