Just a reminder!

Tucson Toy show is this Sunday March 3rd!


Also, where are all the scalpers? I went into TRU mid day yesterday and bought a bunch of Vintage figures for 4.99$ and BOGO50
Got Secura, Nom, Gammo, Barrada, and a bunch of others. Someone must have been late getting on the bus!
not bad to get 8 figures for 24$!

I know man, but the fact they were there, made me feel as if they are cursed or something.
And only people that live in Mom's basement know about curses, I need a read!

:awesome:

Broadway TRU had the ROTJ Deleted scenes wave this morning. I was hoping for a Gamorean but I'm not that lucky I guess. They also had the latest Marvel Universe Team sets if anyone else collects those- X-men with Rogue, West Coast Avengers, Inhumans. Speedway Walmart, East Broadway Target and Grant Target had nothing at all as far as SW, Marvel, or GI Joe.

I have two Kibi's both gray though.
Ywing I got at a discount so it's 40 with the figures or 35 without.

also, Target 3-packs and Dewback are all retail clearance, so asking 15$ for each.

Got the Endor AT AT AT Oracle TRU today. Checked Broadway and they didn't have it but they called Oracle and they had one. Now that I have it I'm on the fence about keeping it- $142 after tax is a little too steep but I love the ROTJ box.

Found both entire black series waves at TRU this morning. Picked up only the sandtrooper from the 6", but all 8 of the 3.75". Even qualified for the BOGO half off (I never get good timing like that).

Long time no post for me, but my interest in the Black line has brought me back. TRU on Broadway are now sold out of the 6" and 3.75 figures. They had a 3.75 Anakin when I first walked in but he was gone when I was leaving. Targets on Broadway and @Craycroft and Old Spanish Trail had nothing but the old stuff they have had for almost a year now.


Edit:Went back to the Spanish Trail Target to pick something up around 4:30 and they had almost a full case of 3.75 inch figures laying on the shelf. No shelf tag so someone must have had it brought out.

Greetings all! I just moved to the Vail area from Dover DE. I was out and about and saw a Black Series Anakin at the Tucson Spectrum Target (still learning my way around). I picked up the Transformers. That kinda bums me out about the Broadway TRU as I stopped by there this afternoon in hopes to seeing the Black series (I did walk about with a Halo Mega Bloks set). I do hope that I can meet/work with some of you to help fill our collections. Take care!

I only collect vintage SW, but it's awesome to see some fellow Tuscon raiders on here!

I didn't find out about that last toy show we had until the day of and I was kicking myself.

Haven't really found much of anything recently. Only Anakin and the Scout Trooper (#3 & #7). Called Target and said they are trying to clear current inventory and reading for the Fall. I did manage to get the Boba and Han in Carbonite piece. Look's great on the shelf!

Anyone buy any books recently?? I just picked up Crucible and Mercy Kill.

McCsith, I just picked up that X-Wing! Last one on the shelf. Thanks for the tip!!! BTW, there are a few RPG games out now for Star Wars. I've seen one in the Star Wars section at Barnes and Noble on La Cholla.

The Star Wars: Edge of the Empire RPG is the title if I'm not mistaken.

GRRR. I ****ing hate scalpers. GRRR.
They are the worst. Especially that shop. One of the reasons why its been difficult to find anything on the shelves for awhile.

Back on Topic, I picked up the only TVC X-wing from TRU on Broadway yesterday. They still had two TVC AT-ATs.

Shops like that are annoying. At least try and compete and make collectors WANT to go to your store.

Anyway, just played my first X-Wing Miniature game with the gf. She won -______- lol

Picked up the Jedi sets at TRU Broadway tonight. $86 for both was a little steep though. They also had the Vintage X-wing and Vintage Gunship but prices were too high as Galactic Marine stated above. I remember when the Gunship was $30 way back when ROTS came out and just can't bring myself to pay $120 + tax for it. I don't think its value has gone up 4X in 8 years.

Spoke with K-mart today. The Ewok/scanning crew sets were only put on order yesterday and since none show in their warehouse, it will be a minimum of 3 weeks before they get them if they get them at all- even though they have shelf space for them now.

Found the Ewoks at Kmart this morning. They showed up as available last night online so I put in an order (third time) figuring it would probably get cancelled. I stopped by and was surprised to see they had them on the shelf. I'm guessing the scalpers left this case because everything was totally smashed. I picked up the best of the bunch. If my online order doesn't get cancelled again, I will have an extra if someone needs it.

No Scanning Crew sets.

LOL, I just saw the crushed exclusive sets at K-Mart. All I can say to who ever did it is, You mad bro? You think destroying items is going to stop people from scalping them? I get most of my stuff from the backroom pulled by employees. They never touch the floor. What an idiot.:awesome:

Please crush on! You're doing Gods work.

I think they got crushed during shipping BEFORE they came out of their shipping box from what it looked like to me. I seriously doubt anyone smashed them on purpose. What I meant was the reason they stayed on the shelf unlike the two prior cases was because they got smashed and are therefore harder for the scalpers to re sell for a profit.

No, they were smashed by someone. Look at the way they are crushed. If they were smashed from shipping, they would fit together with the same flow of damage. These were handled and crushed individually. And, there's alot of people looking for these. Not just scalpers. Doesn't matter. I talked to a Co-Worker in Cali and he shows tons are on the way from the distribution center.

Btw, I heard the old man Carl got escorted out of Toys R Us for harassment.
