No luck on the new figures yet metaljedi. I'll keep looking though.
Haven't had much time to hunt, and looks like I will have even less, seeing how we have decided to move into a smaller more affordable house, I'm spending most of my time trying to get ready for the move.
Keep me posted on what you all find though, so I can be sure not to miss anything.
I read some where that KB toys, the store not the web site, was the first place they were shipped to, so you might want to check there often. Don't know how true the rumor is, but it's worth checking out. I'm not too intrested in this wave of figures, but that's usually what happens. I don't think I want 'em until they are gone....
Wal Mart and Target in Riverdale had nothing of intrest to me, pretty much everything you have seen before.
Anyone finding the UNLEASHED figures yet? I like the style of these, can't wait to get the Vader and Anakin figures. The Jango and Maul I might get if they go on clearence some day....
I won't check KB in the Newgate Mall cause they got a HORDE of the Yoda wave. The Chewbacca is the one I want since it has the light up 3P0. Im getting kinda of weary as of late with Walmart not stocking anything new. The Layton one had 4 figures on the pegs the rest were empty.
So what the H*ll is the deal with Palpy? I'm having the hardest time trying to find this geezer. Why is he so hard to find? Are scalpers picking him up for some strange reason? I know the KIDS aren't the ones buying him.
If you were a kid, would you want an action figure of an old man, who has no ACTION feature, and no accessories? What is the PLAY value of the geezer figure?
Sorry for the rant, but I'm getting frustrated here.
So if anyone has an extra they would be willing to part with, LMK.
I haven't see Palpatine around yet. So I am in the same boat. I am sure that he will show up soon enough though. I found the Endor raid Han and Djas Puhr at the Wal Mart and Target in Sandy today. If I find Palpy I will pick up an extra one for you DJ.
Anything new? Why, yes, as a matter of fact. Wal*Mart in Taylorsville had loads of Han, Chewie and Obi tonight. Also, three boxes of Acklay! Only eleven left now, as I bought one. Get there early tomorrow, kids, and they may still have some left.
I'm not planning on collecting the Unleashed line, but for those of you who might be interested, it looks like these are making their way into SLC now. Found Jango and Maul at the Shopko in Taylorsville today. Since when has Shopko had anything? Go figure.
You guys up north need to check your stores more often. I was on your turf today and I found Obi, Chewy and Han at the Layton Walmart. I also found Acklay at the Centerville Target. They had about 3 left but they are on a back endcap near the summer toys. Hope that helps.
Wally seems to have gotten a shot of them a week or two ago (that's when I found mine in Taylorsville). Seems like Wal*Mart often gets a small drop of a new item, then a few weeks later they are warming the pegs. I'd bet that by Pioneer Day (lived here 4 years and I still don't know what THAT one's all about) you'll be sick of seeing Acklay at both Wally and TRU. Remember when it was hard to find the Bespin wave?
still in the process of moving, so not much hunting for me. I did notice that Riverdale Wallyworld had newer stuff(and some older...ODD) of the SAGA figures. The Unleashed figures were there as well, but all were in really beat up packages so I passed. The TRU in Riverdale seems to be cleaning house, a butt load of the first SAGA figures were out on the pegs, (I scored an R2 for the lack of anything else I wanted) and in the usual SW section they had tons of POTJ Imp. Officer and friends.
Anybody score a Palpatine, at a store, yet?
I seem to be missing him by seconds every time I go looking. A store employee at Riverdale Wallyworld asked me what I was looking for and when I said Palpatine, she said "OH yeah, I just put those out". My heart stopped, but when we looked, they had all been scooped up by someone else. Seems to be the story of my life these days.
The moral to my tale is, "If anyone spots a Palpatine and has the funds to grab an extra, please...please...please...snag one for me."
