Found Ki Adi and Teemto at the Westport Rd. Meijer's on Friday night. I think I got the last Ki Adi, but there were still about 3 Teemto's, Djas Puhr's, Endor Han's and Cloud City Chewies left.
08-08-2002, 08:08 AM
Great Drew, I found the new Target Accessory sets at the Preston Hwy Store yesterday along with the new action fleet vehicles.
Also saw Palpatine and Puhr at TRU on Outer Loop.
08-08-2002, 11:22 AM
WOW, did they have a LOT of the Palpatines?
I still need one.
I went to a few Targets last week and they were sold out of the Acc. packs. I guess I'll have to hit the stores tomorrow. Target re-stocks at night right?
08-08-2002, 02:57 PM
I found the new Anakin and Darth Maul at Westport Rd. K-Mart. I hid one of each in the opposite shelf behind a WWF Ring set.
Westport Rd. Wal-Mart had all the action fleet ships and about 5 Acklays.
08-08-2002, 08:43 PM
I just got back from the Target in E-Town!
They had all of the Micro stuff (except for the Falcon...which I saw at Wal-Mart next-door) and 1 lonely Death Star Accessory set.
So I got the Accessory Set and passed on the Micro Machines/Action Fleet stuff.
08-08-2002, 10:33 PM
That TRU had about five or six of the Palpatines.
Hope you get one. Was at Super Wal-Mart on Preston tonight and they Had the Ultimate 12" Jango Fett. First one I have seen!
08-14-2002, 04:01 PM
Today I Found the New Action Fleet Scenes at the Target on Preston Hwy. They had all four and plenty of them for $5.99. They also hade a few of the accessory sets left also.
08-21-2002, 04:29 PM
I found the deluxe C3PO/battle droid set at the St. Matts Target on Saturday, 8-17. If I remember correctly, they also had one accessory set, the Hoth one.
08-21-2002, 04:50 PM
Found Luke Skywalker's X-Wing today at the TRU on Outer Loop.
They had a couple.
08-21-2002, 06:07 PM
Um, I'm still up in the air on this one.
Is it really worth the $40 price tag?
I'll just say that, when it comes to ships, I'm an opener all the way.
08-22-2002, 08:03 AM
The Clarksville TRU, Target and KB didn't have anything new last night. I checked.
09-04-2002, 05:54 AM
Just found the Cantina sets at Wal-Mart in Radcliff.
09-04-2002, 08:54 AM
The Clarksville Wal Mart had some cantina sets on Labor Day; I bought the Hammerhead and Greedo sets.
The Shelbyville Rd. TRU had the exclusive X-wing and landspeeder on Saturday. I passed on both for the moment.
The St. Matthews Target had the deluxe C3PO set. It's pretty cool. I have Anakin fighting a flying insect on it.
Nothing else to report at this time. I may go out in the next night or two, or Saturday, to look some more.
09-12-2002, 08:16 PM
Well, here's what I found today:
Wal-Mart in E-Town had 2 Acklays left, plus a BUNCH of the Bespin Luke wave (plastic peg and metal peg)
KB at Olde Towne Mall has the Jedi Star Fighter with Obi-Wan.
The rest is the same old story.:(
09-13-2002, 08:04 AM
The Clarksville Target had two boxes of ATOC trading cards, if anyone (other than me) cares. I'm gonna buy a couple more packs in hopes of finishing out a second set.
09-14-2002, 07:27 AM
I found the new 12" Wave, Mace Unleashed, and the 12" Electronic Jango and Obi-Wan at the Preston Meijer Last Night 9-13-02. No sign however of the Dooku Unleased!
09-16-2002, 07:37 AM
I found the deluxe Yoda at the St. Matthews Target. The Zone in St. Matts had the 12" Super Battle Droid, Zam Wessel and Dooku figures for $25. All three were very nice.
10-02-2002, 04:26 PM
The new Lott Dodd, Padme, Tusken Raider, Watto & Jango Pilot (plus TA Anakin, ST Darth Maul, Dooku & Yoda) are at the St. Matthew's KB.
10-02-2002, 09:32 PM
Argh, darn college is keeping me busy.
I stoped by Meijer on 31W tonight. I found Darth Maul Sith Training and Palpatine (finally MOMC) they also had a couple of the new Anakins (bubbles were crushed on ALL of them:rolleyes: ) It looked like a few choice figs had the upper left (ONLY) corners bent and bubbles crushed. Kinda suspicious.
In any event, nothing else new. I am SOOO far behind right now.
10-03-2002, 07:39 AM
Our whole area is running behind. I finally found Djas in a store last Saturday.
10-07-2002, 03:54 PM
The Jeffersonville Meijer had one Republic gunship on Saturday, and the New Albany Kmart had the electronic Jango Fett and Obi Wan. Jango looked too cool!
10-09-2002, 04:09 PM
I was at the Toys R Us in St Matthews today and they had 4 Republic Gun Ships(they were up front), along with the New 12" wave minus Dooku, The new Luke and Taun Taun, and Ulitimate Jango. Did not see any new 3 3/4" Figures though!
10-14-2002, 08:55 AM
New figures were put out on Friday, Oct. 11, at the St. Matts store. I found all of them except Ephant Man, tusken with massif, and clone trooper pilot.
Didn't see the gunship. They had a stack 12" Luke and taun tauns.
10-20-2002, 09:02 AM
I found Lott Dod, Tusken Raider, and Watto Wave at the Outer Loop K-Mart. They also had all three of the new Action Fleet Vehicles. On Friday the TRU on Dixie had the New Republic Gunship.
10-21-2002, 07:25 AM
The Jeffersonville Meijer had the Republic gunship and the arena playset on Saturday. The playset looked better than some of the posts I'd read.
10-21-2002, 05:44 PM
Hey, I live in western KY but I'll be in Louisville for a conference this Thursday & Saturday. Where are the best places to look for Star Wars figures? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
10-21-2002, 08:21 PM
Manji, seems the St Matthews Toys R Us is a good place. It is on US60 just west of I264.
10-22-2002, 07:57 AM
The St. Matthews Target is a good place to hit, too. It's a regular shop on my route. It's about two miles up from the St. Matts TRU. I can't think of the street's name, but it's at a traffic light. A Papa John's is on one side and Beargrass Creek Church on the opposite side.
10-22-2002, 11:49 AM
I found DM sith training and Anakin tatooine attack at the KB in E-Town yesterday. Those were the first new figs I have seen in over a month.
10-22-2002, 12:15 PM
I'm only vaguely familiar with Louisville, so I'm not sure where you guys are talking about. I'll be coming in through E-town, so just go west on I264 & then get off on US60? Thanks for all the info!
10-22-2002, 03:14 PM
Manji, From I65 North (E-Town) Take I264 EAST to US60 which is the St Matthews Exit. TRU is up on the left past the mall.
10-23-2002, 09:54 PM
Preston Wal-Mart Had the Republic Gunship today and the new Action Fleet Vehicles
10-25-2002, 03:34 PM
Today 10/25/02 The Dixie TRU had the new Padme Pilot Wave, and YODA!!! Also plenty of TA Annis
10-25-2002, 08:52 PM
Hey, I just got back from my conference up your way. Thought I'd let you guys know what I found at the Okolona (?) Outer Loop TRU. They had Watto (1), Lott Dod (1), Tusken with Massiff (1), Count Dooku (1), Clone Trooper Pilot (1), Teemto (1), Ki-Adi-Mundi, and all the Jango Pilots, Yodas, TA Anakin, and Pilot Padmes you could shake a stick at. The only ones I needed (no-goatee ERS, Ephant Mon, and Deluxe Clonetrooper with removable armor) they didn't have so I didn't buy anything. I already had one of each of what they had. Hope this helps some of you, & thanks for the directions. I struck out at the St. Matthews shops.
10-27-2002, 02:48 PM
Glad to hear your trip was successful!! I haven't read any posts where someone found Ephant Man yet.
11-03-2002, 08:51 PM
I found the AOTC Arena Playset today at the Preston Wal-Mart. Also had the new Jango & Padme Pilot Wave.
11-03-2002, 09:37 PM
Finally scored at the E'Town Walmart. Picked up Lott Dodd, Watto, Teemto, DM training, Anakin, Padme coruscant attack, Tusken w/massiff, & Ki Adi. They still had plenty left.
Also, got the X-Wing w/R2 and the 25th anniversary R2 at the St Matthews TRU.
11-03-2002, 09:44 PM
E Town Wal-Mart?
What time was that?
I was there around 4-5 p.m. and they had nadda, except a few Padme' (Pilot) Aniakin (Tatooine) and a couple of Darth Mauls.
11-03-2002, 10:21 PM
I was there Saturday around 2:00. There were multiples of each, but things do tend to go fast at that WM. In the past, I have found most new stuff at the radcliff WM, but they haven't had much new lately, except the arena & gunship.
11-04-2002, 07:21 AM
I found the clone trooper deluxe/accessory set (just one!) at the Bashford Manor Target on Saturday, as well as the battle droid and Hoth accessory sets. I was shocked to find the accessory sets, since they've been gone for more than a month.
I passed on the deluxe Geonosian warrior set. It was OK but it looks like it will be around.
Did everyone get the silver R2 on Saturday?
11-04-2002, 03:51 PM
I forgot: Ephant Man was spotted in my area. At the Clarksville Wal Mart!!
I normally hit on Saturday mornings, but since I didn't have any cash I didn't stop!!!
No luck at other area WMs or retailers.
11-30-2002, 04:49 PM
Found the AT-AT and Snowspeeder Action Fleet at the Preston Super Wal-Mart Last Night, also had plenty of Clone Pilots.
11-30-2002, 11:15 PM
Today I found the Three new electronic lightsabers at TRU on Outer Loop, Mace Windu, Orange Jedi, and Green Jedi. Funny how these were not around on Friday when they were $12.99. Hope this helps.
12-01-2002, 11:22 AM
I thought the sale was for Friday, Saturday and Sunday?
12-01-2002, 02:52 PM
The Clarksville TRU got hit hard on Black Friday. I visited Saturday morning and found several empty pegs, pegs that were full Wednesday night.
I did manage to pick up three badly-needed figures for $3.
12-01-2002, 04:43 PM
No Sith Killer, the sale for the lightsabers was what they called a "Doorbuster sale" for Friday from 6am to noon.
That just sucks in my opinon and like OC47150 said the pegs were empty
12-01-2002, 07:20 PM
WOW, the pegs are still empty?:eek:
I was hoping that they would re-stock right after the sale. I guess, I'm glad I decided not to stop by today.
On a side note, I just got back from Ohio and scored most of the figs I needed between here and Canton. I found Ehpant Mon in Cincinatti.:D
I will be hunting for those last few figs this week, hopefully everyone will re-stock by Friday, Thursday seems to be a big day for new stuff.
My needs list is down to Tusken Raider and Jango Pilot. I found Jango on Friday, but refused to wait in line for an hour or more just for 1 figure. I have also seen a few Tusken Raiders, but all of them were in poor condition, bad bubbles seem to plague this figure.
Oh yeah, and a few more Clone Pilots would be nice.;)
12-02-2002, 07:29 AM
FYI -- the Clarksville TRU had the latest wave of 12" figures on Saturday -- Dengar, Zuckus and the Imperial officer. Hadn't seen that reported yet.
12-02-2002, 01:13 PM
Picked up the holiday figs at the Walmart in E'town yesterday. Also found the BD, DS trooper, and Hoth accessory sets at the E'town Target.
Other than that, it's been pretty bland around here lately. I had to go to SC over Thanksgiving to find Jango Pilot, Dooku, deluxe Yoda and deluxe C3PO.
12-02-2002, 01:20 PM
The holiday set hasn't hit the New Albany or Clarksville Wal Marts as of the holiday; I kept checking.
I have family who left for Gatlinburg this morning. I asked them to be on the lookout for the holiday set.
12-02-2002, 01:52 PM
Darn, I hit E'town hard on Saturday and NADA. I wonder if they still have the Holiday set?
12-09-2002, 08:59 PM
I saw the new wave of 12" Bounty Hunters last night at the Super Wal-Mart in Fern Creek. Still no sign of the Holiday Edition.
12-10-2002, 06:30 AM
I found the holiday set at the Clarksville WM last week. I'm doing some shopping after work; will check and see for you and give a report tomorrow.
It's a nice set. I have it sitting on top of my TV as part of my Christmas decorations.
12-11-2002, 10:07 PM
Tonight the Wal Mart on Preston had the new Lego Wave, the ones with Jabba, they also had plenty of the new 12" wave also!!
12-13-2002, 05:20 PM
E-Town Wal-Mart had 1 Christmas set and the new 12 inch stuff.
KB toys (E-Town) had a few Clone Pilots and I managed to score a lone Destroyer Droid. The cashier said that they had just stocked them and they sold out fast!
12-17-2002, 12:36 PM
TRU on Outer Loop had Tons of the new Destroyer Droid Geonosis Today. I did however only see two of the New Yoda Jedi Council.
They also had the new lego sets buy one get one 50% off
12-20-2002, 08:57 AM
I was at the St Matthews TRU two days ago and they had tons of clone pilots and destroyer droids - probably 20 or more of each. Many were in the back behind other older figures. Are these the only two figures in a particular case assortment?
Anyway, I have yet to see an Ephont Mon anywhere.
12-21-2002, 12:58 PM
No Chuck, the re-hash Yoda also comes in that assortment.
Sorry to hear about your lousy luck with Ephant Mon. I had to go to Cincinnati to find mine.:(
12-30-2002, 12:09 PM
Been on vacation guys, just got back to work. The new Yoda and destroyer droids were plentiful at the TRUs I visited over the holiday (Louisville and Indiana), and most Targets were well stocked with the accessory sets.
Still no Ephant Mon to be found.
01-01-2003, 01:22 PM
Meijer on 31W is having a Star Wars sale
Republic Gunship $19.40
Slave 1 $13.40
They only had one Arena and the box was pretty beat-up so I passed.
01-02-2003, 07:19 AM
I noticed that Target is clearancing the Saga Micro Machine sets. Not the ships but the two-packs with the bantha and escape pod. They were $2.98. I'm going to pick a couple up this weekend.
01-03-2003, 07:10 PM
:D Well hello everyone out there!
Let me introduce myself. My handle is TEAMRICO and I've been a member of this site for awhile, along with rebelscum.com, sandtroopers.com and thejawa.com. I just found your forum here.
Im located here in the Ft. Knox area, actually I live in Radcliff...so you are the guys beating me to the good stuff at the Walmarts!!!!:D J/K.
Saw some of you guys are located in Ft. Knox, I work at the NCOA(19D BNCOC).
I have been collecting for a few years now.
I have mainly been focusing on the vintage line (POTF 85 is my favorite). I collect modern myself and have quite a bite of stuff. Mainly I go for the 3 3/4 figs but usually buy what I like.
I was in L-ville today and ran across the same stuff but found a Unleashed Darth Vader at the TRU on Outer Loop.
I like to trade and am always on the hunt for vintage figures to complete my set.
If anyone out there collects vintage drop me a line.
Hope to chat more in the future.
01-05-2003, 06:05 PM
I just got back from Elizabeth town Target and they have a bunch of the new lego sets.
I bought the mini's.
They also had Jabba's Palace and the Boba Fett/Carbo Han set.
01-05-2003, 10:07 PM
I dont know how you guys are with posting auctions but I currently have this up for sale.
You could save on shipping!!
01-07-2003, 05:46 PM
Wal-Mart in Radcliff has the new Death Star Trash Compactor sets.
They had 2, now 1:D .
01-08-2003, 07:59 AM
Anybody seen Ephant Mon in the last couple of weeks? He keeps eluding me.
01-08-2003, 07:00 PM
Havent seen any EM's down here.
I finally got some photos of my collection up.
01-09-2003, 07:27 AM
I haven't seen or heard of them since the weekend the silver R2s were available.
01-13-2003, 03:53 PM
The New Albany WM had the compactor sets on Saturday, one of each. Very nice. Hasbro is finally getting Han to look more like Harrison Ford.
01-17-2003, 10:07 AM
E'town Wal-Mart has the SAGA TIE Bomber $28 and some change,
I also found a Trash set hiding over with the new SW LEGO's.:confused:
Either some scalper or just a stasher, either way it was kinda silly to hide the set over by the Star Wars Legos!?!?!
I put it back, it appeared to be the only set around. I found my set over in Radcliff so I had no need for it. BTW, it was Han and Luke if anyone is interested.
Not much else going on. I stopped by TRU (31W) last week. I plan on hitting both 31W and Outerlooper this weekend, probably Sunday.
Anyway, HH and MTFBWY:)
Oh, and drive safe out there.
01-18-2003, 03:19 PM
I was wondering who got the trash compactor sets at the Radcliff WM. I found a case of 4 one morning but it wasn't opened yet. Went back at lunch and they were gone. Hope more come soon.
01-20-2003, 07:28 AM
New finds are non-existent on the Sunny Side. The Clarksville TRU had 20 or so Jango pilots and that's about it.
01-20-2003, 07:57 AM
Yeah, I managed to snag 1 of each. With a hefty price tag of almost $40.00.:(
BTW, Meijer's on 31W still has a few Gunships for $20.00 and Slave 1's for $10.00, not to mention a big sale on Star Wars LEGOs.
01-26-2003, 12:34 PM
Well, I just got back from the Outer Loop Wal-Mart and guess what I found!
Spear Chuckin' Obi-Wan and the new Dooku!
I passed on both of 'em!
However, they also had Yoda High Council and a clean shaven Endor Rebel Soldier, I bought both. The ERS card was seriously and suspiciously bent. But that's OK I already had one MOMC, so this will be my opener. :D
Anyway, it looks like the new stuff is starting to hit.
01-26-2003, 12:41 PM
I hope they get some of the new figures up this way in Illinois. My son and I went out shopping at several different stores today, and nothing new out there. I'm beginning to get withdrawal shakes, I need a Star Wars fix..................... so sad.
01-26-2003, 09:29 PM
Found Acklay battle Obi Wan, Dooku, and the Flying Geonosian at the E-town Walmart today. I got the last one of each. I have still never seen an EM other than at the celebration in Indianapolis.
01-27-2003, 07:33 AM
I found not one but TWO Ephant Mans at the Bashford Manor Target on Saturday! I've been looking for him since November.
Also picked up the clean shaven Endor trooper, too.
Has anyone spotted the Target AF exclusives on clearance in the last week? I went out specifically looking for them on Saturday, stopped at four Targets and didn't see a single one. If they are in your area, drop me a line.
01-29-2003, 08:38 PM
Found a deluxe clone trooper (with speeder bike) and force flipping Anakin at the Radcliff Walmart. I got the last clone trooper, but there are several Anakins and several flying Geonosians left.
01-31-2003, 08:39 PM
I opened 2 cases of the New Dooku, Obi Wans yesterday at the Radcliff Walmart, All the bubbles were crushed and in POOR SHAPE.
I left them in cases, How sad.
02-01-2003, 09:05 AM
Yeah, I must have gotten there after you left. I found one case had been put on the pegs and the other case was on the floor.:)
Man, it looked like someone had used those cases to prop open a heavy door or something.
I went ahead and bought and extra Yoda to open, just for the heck of it.
BTW, I also stopped by Outer Loop yesterday afternoon. The Wal-Mart in Okalona (sp?) had some cool new stuff. I found:
Padme' Droid Factory Chase
Rebel Trooper Tantive IV Defender
Tusken Raider Tatooine Camp Ambush
I found it a bit odd, since I stopped by the night before and they had nothing new. Anyway, the stockboy said that they were doing inventory and everything was getting put out as soon as it arrived. In other word "Nothing in the back."
BTW, the Padme' and Rebels had damaged cards, most likely from shipping, judging from the type of damage.
They still had a few figs with damaged cards:
They were hiding to the left and down from the regular SW figures in another little 4 peg area, I almost missed them. There was just nowhere else for the stockboy to put 'em. So if anyone goes, make sure you look around a bit before you leave.
02-02-2003, 08:08 PM
Im selling a few HTF EP1 items in the SELLING forums.
I will wave shipping if you use PAYPAL and I will deliver locally around Ft. Knox E-town area.
02-03-2003, 07:43 AM
The New Albany WM had Eeth Koth and Teebo but no other new figures. Those were the first new figures I'd seen at WM for quite some time.
Sith Killer, is there a big difference between the Saga Rebel trooper and POTJ Rebel trooper, other than the face?
02-03-2003, 07:25 PM
Hey anyone out there interested in a get together? Me and some guys from rebelscum.com are getting together on Friday at TGIF's to talk about collecting and bring some of our collection pieces to show.
Its only about 3 or 4 guys right now.
Modern, Vintage whatever your choice.
Nothing geeky with lame t-shirts and crap like that(I hope):D
Im 32 and a normal mid-life collector LOL's.
Here is the link if you are interested.
Maybe we can carpool from the Radcliff area.
02-10-2003, 07:38 AM
I found the new Acklay attack Obi Wan and Yoda at the New Albany Target, two Destroyer Droids at the Clarksville Target and two sneak preview clone troopers at the Clarksville TRU. Pretty good weekend.
02-13-2003, 07:32 PM
Dang Gina! I know the SW shipments are slow but Nobody seems to be posting here very often.
Radcliff Walmart has the EP2 Jedi fighters on clearance for $7.00! Not bad if you want an opener. The boxes were a little scuffed and I bought the best one they had. They are on the clearance wall off shame near the outdoor stuff.
They also had what seemed to be a new shipment of toys outside so keep an eye out tomorrow. The last shipment they got in flew off the shelves apparantly because they were all crumpled but sold out anyway.
Not to much else to report, swing on over to rebelscum.com and look in the "Look what I found" forums and look in the Louisville thread. Pretty lively over there, just a thought.
02-14-2003, 07:31 AM
I'll check it out, Nathan.
Someone on Yakface.com reported the Target SW accessory sets are on sale this week for $8. Has anyone come across that? If that's true, I want to pick a couple more up.
02-14-2003, 09:43 AM
I spotted a Clone with Speeder at E'Town Wal-Mart last night.
Not much else going on right now.
02-16-2003, 06:12 PM
Hey, if any of you guys lives on Cypress in Radcliff, your Star Wars Insider was delivered to me by mistake. I will get it back in the mail and you should have it in a couple days.
02-17-2003, 07:14 AM
The New Albany WM had one Rebel trooper and several Eeth Koths and Teebos Saturday night.
02-23-2003, 05:33 PM
TRU on Outer Loop had the new 12" today and they also had their deluxe figures marked down to $6.89. I did not see any new 33/4" figs though!
02-24-2003, 07:40 AM
The Corydon Wal-Mart had one repackaged TIE bomber. First time I'd seen that anywhere.
02-24-2003, 08:54 PM
The E'town Walmart got in about a dozen of these. Four were beneath the figures, and another eight up top.
03-05-2003, 04:18 PM
Sorry, guys, but the sunnyside has been pretty dry the last few weeks. Destroyer Droids are plentiful, though.
03-07-2003, 08:03 AM
I spoke too soon, guys! The Clarksville Wal-Mart had one Saga TIE bomber, and the C'ville TRU had the 12" Boushh figure.
I was a little more than disappointed with the Boushh figure. It's definitely not worth $40. There are other 12" figures I'd buy first before this one.
03-14-2003, 09:58 PM
If anyone cares, the E'Town Target has a ton of accesory packs/figures - all four are there. I picked up an extra of each.
The Radcliff WM keeps getting in the same old case assortment with the clone pilot/Dooku, etc. Still no sign of Ephont Mon. I have never seen him at retail. The only one I ever saw was at the SW Celebration in Indianapolis.
Also, if anyone sees any Trash Compactor sets, let me know. Still need those too.
03-17-2003, 07:52 AM
Darth Chuck, I have a friend find trash compactor sets at a Wal-Mart outside of South Bend (!) for me last week. My friend stopped at 12 WMs on his way up to South Bend, and the Plymouth store was the only place in central and northern Indiana he found them in.
I found most of latest wave of figures at the New Albany Wal-Mart on Saturday -- library droids, Padme, Tusken Raider. Also found Imp officer and Rebel trooper variations: Red-haired Rebels and blond Imp. The Imp is so blond he looks almost unpainted.
No discounted TIE bombers that I could find, either.
Great weekend overall.
Now, if only Target would get the new accessory sets in!
03-19-2003, 07:51 AM
OC you may want to try the new target Behind Bashford Manor Mall. They had plenty of accessory sets on Sunday!
03-19-2003, 07:57 AM
With the Yavin techie accessory sets??
I've had good luck at the Bash Target. I fought two Ephant Mons and the deluxe clone trooper/speeder bike there.
03-22-2003, 09:08 PM
I managed to score a new Imperial Officer small head, brown hair. The card was kinda beat up and the bubble had a hole in it. I guess that's why he was still there. Oh well, I needed a few of these to open anyway.;)
BTW, this was at the Wal-Mart on Outer Loop across from Toys R Us.
03-24-2003, 07:31 AM
The third wave of the Micro Machine ships are showing up at stores. This wave contains the AOTC Slave 1, star destroyer-style ship and Republic gunship.
I picked up several Lego sets on clearance at area Wal-Marts and K-marts over the weekend. They were the Ep. 1 sets and a ROJ set. They're fun to play with!
04-04-2003, 07:11 PM
Target on Dixie had plenty of Accessory Sets last night, and the Wal-mart Had plenty of TIE Bombers, no mark downs though.
I am still looking for the Imperial and Rebel Variants if anyone sees any please let me know!
04-07-2003, 09:28 AM
Haven't seen a new figure in at least two weeks.
Accessory sets are plentiful at the Clarksville Target, too. No markdowns on the TIE bombers, either.
I've been picking up stuff on clearance -- Zam Wessel 12" at Target for $10 and Legos at Kmart and Wal-Mart.
04-07-2003, 09:54 PM
I haven't found anything new around Radcliff/E'Town in at least a month. Just the same handful of peg warmers.
I went on vacation the week before last to South Carolina, and found the Padme Droid Factory wave in several stores, along with plenty of rebel trooper variants. Didn't see any imperial officers, though. And I still have yet to see an Ephont Mon. I am about to give in to the dark side and call Bryan's Toys.
04-08-2003, 07:30 AM
Shop around at a couple of other online toy retailers first, Darth Chuck. I received Bryan's Toys new catalog yesterday in the mail and his price for Ephant Mon was on the high side.
If you're up in Louisville, check out the Bashford Manor Target. I've had real good luck there.
04-11-2003, 04:06 PM
Target on Preston, had plenty of the new Yoda Lightsabers today. Nothing elst new though, Bummer!! Nor at the TRU on Outerloop!
04-11-2003, 04:09 PM
I'm going out early Sunday morning, armed with the Target ad, and getting me some destroyer droids!!!!!
04-15-2003, 08:58 AM
Though one of you guys seemed to have beat me there, the Radcliff WM just got in two cases of the Boba Fett Carkoon/Anakin secret ceremony wave. One case was half gone - I took the other half, but one complete opened case was still there when I left. It had two flying R2's, two Anakin secret ceremonies, two Boba Fetts, two Geo Mace Windus, two Arena Dookus, and two Acklay Obi-Wans. They were the first new figs I have seen in quite some time. They were there as of 9:00 a.m. Good luck.
04-15-2003, 10:17 AM
Did you remember to use the Target ad, Darth Chuck?
04-15-2003, 05:52 PM
I stoped by around 1:30 and found them. I grabed a Fett (they only had 1 left), 2 Anakins (one to open and one MOMC), 1 carded R2-D2, and 1 Mace.:D
Mace and R2 are definatly staying on their cards.:rolleyes: I am not impressed. I must be jones'n for new figures to have picked up the Mace.:crazed:
Anyway, we finally caught a break.
04-15-2003, 07:56 PM
Damn it man, you are the ones who beat me to them, I thought it might be someone here! I got there around 5pm or so and saw the remains of the cases. I found an R2, Mace, Obi Acklay and Tyranus.
But get this, did you guys pay full price? If you go to target and get there latest flyer they are having a sale on Saga figures, 2 for $5.00! Walmart will price match. I got the 4 figs for $10.00!!!
The sale is good till Saturday. Get crackin. Now who wants to sell there Fett??
04-16-2003, 11:27 AM
Did anyone stop by E'town yesterday?
I'm just wondering if Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart or KB has anything new.
04-16-2003, 07:27 PM
I was at the Walmart and Target in E-town yesterday. Nothing new on the pegs . The sale was still on for 2 for 5 and the DELUXE sets were marked down to $7.99.
Thats about it. Now what about that Fett? LOL's
04-17-2003, 05:58 AM
LOL, I have a nice boxed 300th Fett if your interested.;)
I stopped by Target, Wal-Mart and KB toys in E'town last night. WOW, there were literally 2 regular carded figures at Target and not much more at Wal-Mart. This could be good news, with all the old stuff clearanced out we may see some of the newer stuff next week.:D
04-19-2003, 02:05 PM
The E-town Wal-Mart had the remains of the Fett wave. Of course all the Fetts were gone just leaving the regulars. Did manage to pick up the New Robo-Hand Anakin for $2.50.(Price Match)
04-19-2003, 03:09 PM
Again?!?! Sorry to hear you keep missing him.
I ran to outer loop last night, not much out there, I did manage to snag a few army builders with the price match, at Wal-Mart I found:
Endor Rebel (Clean Shaven) X3
Clone Pilot X1
Royal Guards X2
All for $15.00....not too bad.;)
04-19-2003, 07:29 PM
Hey, TEAMRICO, the Radcliff WM got another (third) Case of the Boba Fett Wave in last night. I saw it unopened on a pallet at about 9:30 p.m. I opened it enough to see the figure assortment (still looking for Ephont Mon). I went back there at 9:00 a.m. this morning and there was no sign of the pallet and no figs on the pegs. They are going to be closed all day Sunday and not open again until Monday morning. Try checking back then.
04-19-2003, 10:24 PM
What time will they open on Monday and why are they closed??
Thanks for the tip!
04-20-2003, 06:01 PM
There was a sign posted on the front doors that just said that they were closed. It did have the opening time Monday morning, but I don't remember it. Seems like 6:00 or 8:00. I only remembered because Walmart is rarely ever closed. I assume it is for Easter, but they are also planning for the move to the Super Walmart a few months from now, so who knows.
04-21-2003, 06:32 AM
No luck on the Fetts or any new figures for that matter. Bumped into Sith Killer, sorry for not making small talk but we were both there for the same reason!
I thought it might be you when I saw the Medical patch while waiting outside.
Alright here is my bounty for the Fett Figure.
1 Loose Mint Complete Ephant Mon and $5 for a Mint Carded Fett.
04-21-2003, 08:21 AM
Other than a couple of army builders bought with the Target ad, I didn't find anything this weekend.
04-27-2003, 04:46 PM
Bad weekend for me. TRU on Preston had NO Saga Figures AT all! Plenty of Preview figs and Deluxe, but not one single Saga figure! What is up with that. Meijer on Preston did have new Padme and Tusken Raider, other than that it was a bust!
04-28-2003, 08:00 AM
Finally saw some of the new figures -- at the flea market! One vendor had Boba Fett, Mace and the flying R2.
Boba was the best of the three. IMO, the Hallmark R2 ornament is better looking than this latest R2. He's all one piece, no moveable head. Mace was OK but I didn't drool over him like I did over Boba.
The vendor wanted $10 each. I kept my money.
He also had Ephant Mon for $20.
Other than that, a slow weekend on the Sunnyside, too.
05-05-2003, 07:42 AM
I scouted several stores on Derby day and found nothing new. Did pick up a four-pack at KB for some army builders.
OT -- I thought about being a stalker Friday night. Ewan McGregor reportedly attended a party at the Derby Museum. I only saw one little reference to this in Thursday or Friday's C-J and nothing else. I seriously thought about going over there with an Obi-Wan figure.
Did anyone else read/hear about that?
05-05-2003, 08:32 AM
Looks like one of you guys probably beat me there, but the Radcliff WM had the remains of the Han Hoth/Mynock Chewie wave. I managed to get one of each and an extra Boba Fett. There was still one Boba, one Mace, and a couple of R2's left if anyone's interested.
BTW, does anyone know the actual breakdown of that case? Does it include Aayla Secura?
I finally broke down and ordered Ephant Mon - man is he huge.
05-05-2003, 09:05 PM
What time did you find the new figures.
I was going to go and check to see if they go new figs but the past week has been a bust.
Just my luck.....
Would you like to sell or trade the Fett?
PLMK, I am tired of looking for that figure.
I can pay cash or PAYPAL.
05-06-2003, 12:30 PM
The Radcliff WM seems to get new stuff either early in the morning or late in the evening. I have had my best luck before 9 a.m. and after 9 p.m.
I sympathize with your not being able to find new figs, and I think I can square you away with a Fett. I will email you separately, so as not to pollute the thread and get corrected by a moderator.
05-19-2003, 04:02 PM
Anyone find anything worth reporting? I've been looking but it's just peg warmers.
05-19-2003, 04:22 PM
The Radcliff WM got yet another case of the Boba Fett wave (about the 4th or 5th of the same case assortment). They were all on the pegs at about 9:00 a.m. this morning.
05-19-2003, 04:23 PM
That's the closest that wave has gotten to me. The stores I normally have good luck at have been dry.
05-19-2003, 10:45 PM
I have seen nothing new in weeks, and the last new figs I saw were Count Dooku and Obi Wan!
05-20-2003, 07:38 AM
It's been since early March for me.
05-26-2003, 05:23 PM
Radcliff Wal-Mart got another 2 cases of the Fett wave today, as of 20 min. ago.
TEAMRICO, I am sending you an e-mail.
05-26-2003, 10:06 PM
I probably shouldn't complain, but how does the Radcliff WM need 7 cases of the same assortment? Meanwhile, I have never seen Ephant Mon at retail and likely won't ever see Barriss Offee or Aayla Secura either. Oh well, next stop Planet Action Figure.
05-27-2003, 07:52 AM
As of Saturday, the Great Escape had the SC Anakin, Mace, flying R2, Hoth Han and mynock Chewie for $15 each. My buddy bought the library droids for $15.
A friend of mine told me the Dixie WM receives shipments the same day the Radcliff WM does. At least Dixie is a little bit closer.
05-27-2003, 02:46 PM
Hello everyone. I live in New Albany, IN and usually post on another board. However, there isn't much posting on there lately (other than me) so I'm going to start posting more here.
As for finds, I read at artoosnews that the Hurstbourne Target had all the new figs last night but they are gone. They had Yoda and Chian, both female Jedis, everything (even the Red Battle Droid). I just called all Targets in town, and they told me that they haven't received a Truck yesterday or today, and they had 0 figures on the shelves. I'm going to call every other day until I find them. Luckily, I have Boba Fett, Han Hoth, Anakin SC, and R2. I only need the Jedi's, Yoda, and Chewie.
If I find them, I'll post here.
05-27-2003, 03:10 PM
I've had the best luck at the NA Wal-Mart but it's been dry there, too. Nothing new since March.
05-27-2003, 04:29 PM
I got lucky several weeks ago at the Westport Road Walmart. I found Boba, Han, R2, and Anakin. I really want Chewie and Aayla though! I have to stop by WM and get milk and OJ on my way home from work, so if they have anything new, I'll post it when I get home.
05-27-2003, 04:38 PM
I hope you have better luck in finding new figures than I have.
I have not seen anything new in a couple months.
Keep me posted on the Target Situation!
05-28-2003, 11:01 AM
Well, I just called Target Springhurst, and they did not stock Star Wars yesterday.
I went to the Target on Westport Road, and they had 0 figures (and the lady was not very helpful at all).
I still need all the new figures except Boba, Han, R2, and Anakin. I saw several new figures at Great Escape, but $15 is too steep for me.
05-28-2003, 04:12 PM
Picked up the New 12" Wave today at the Outer Loop TRU! Lando is Awesome, Han is Decent, and the AT ST Driver is cool.
They had one of each left around 2:00.
I did find out that starting on 6/16 they will only be open weekends while the store is turned into the new Geoffrey Store. The lady at the service desk told me that they will only be getting two more trucks in before this time and no others until the remodel is complete later this summer! That might be why they haven't had anything new at TRU in a while!
Thought I would pass the info on!
05-28-2003, 04:15 PM
Thanks for the news. I heard the Clarksville TRU is scheduled for the change-over in July. Anything on the Shelbyville Rd. TRU?
05-31-2003, 10:58 AM
Imperial 4 pack at the TRU on 31W near Louisville, they still has 5 or so left. HURRY!!!
BTW, $20.00 is a bit steep given the quality and the fact that these are almost all kit-bashed-re-packs.
But hey, it's something new!
05-31-2003, 10:07 PM
I agree Sith_Killer_99 I thought the $19.99 was a bit steep, found mine today at the Outer Loop TRU. I did go ahead and pick one up because I had a $5 gift Certificate. Can't Wait for the Bounty Hunter set!!
06-03-2003, 11:39 AM
I've still been checking Target's and KB's. Haven't found anything yet. But most targets have little gray stickers on the Star Wars price tags. That means that they're on order. No telling when they'll show, but at least they've been ordered. I've also read that KB's have been getting new figs, and the 12" Gam Guard.
If I find anything, I'll post it!
06-06-2003, 01:59 PM
Great Find today at the KB Toys in JMall. they have all their deluxe figures marked down to $5.99!
Coolest thing is they have about 10 of the Clone Trooper with speederbike!
No 12" Gammorean Guard yet though!
TRU had Zilch!!!!
06-06-2003, 02:49 PM
Thanks, I'm going to pick up one to open on my way home tonight!
I checked St. Matt KB's and no Gamm Guard either. I saw that Denver KB's got them, so maybe ours will get them next week. They were on the Denver store's truck manifest though, not a drop shipment -- which means they will come on the normal KB trucks, not Fed Ex.
06-08-2003, 10:42 AM
FYI -- the Clarksville TRU is undergoing renovations to a Geoffrey store and is only open on Fri., Sat. and Sundays. They haven't had anything in the longest time anyway.
I was told by a fellow collector that the Shelbyville Rd., TRU may not be switching to a Geoff store. Any one else hear anything to the contrary?
06-08-2003, 10:54 AM
I heard that they were all undergoing the change, I was able to find the Imperial Forces pack the other day, but nothing else! this is going to suck for us this summer especially with two more 4-packs coming out!
06-08-2003, 11:25 AM

Yeah, both the TRU store I go to (31W and Outer Loop) have signs and aree either currently being re-done (31W) or will be soon (Outer Loop).
I found out the hard way at 31W, when I stopped by on a Thursday.:mad:
Now that I know, it may not be so bad. For me, Friday, Saturday and Sundays are the best times to go to TRU. Plus that means that none of the scalpers can sneak in the day after stocking (in the middle of the week) and buy all the 4-packs.
Either way, I have never had much trouble with finding TRU exclusives here in Kentucky. I bought 4 TIE Interceptors, 1 AT-ST with Speeder Bike, 1 X-Wing with R2-D2 and 3 Imperial 4-packs. In every case I found plenty to satisfy my needs and then some. So I won't worry unless Hasbro decides to discontinue these in the middle of a run.:rolleyes:
06-09-2003, 08:07 AM
Thanks for the info. I won't bother checking the Louisville TRUs out until the weekend.
Apparently, the C'ville TRU had the Imp 4-pack on Friday and either sold out or I just missed it. I pre-ordered one but haven't received it.
06-10-2003, 07:25 PM
The Springhurst Target has the Spider Droid and Super Clone Trooper builder deluxe figs if anyone is looking for those.
06-11-2003, 07:32 AM
I just got the shaft at Target in St. Matt. They had 2 Barris Offee's with crushed bubbles. So I asked a team member to check the back (like I always do) and she refused. Saying they won't check for collectors! THat's the first I've heard of it. I'm calling the store manager now, and probably will write a letter to Hasbro.
Anyone else encountered this?
06-11-2003, 04:07 PM
Yep-Target used to have signs up saying that they won't go in the stockroom to look for collectibles. You can blame that policy on the Hot Wheels freaks. :eek: :eek:
06-11-2003, 04:36 PM
I haven't seen the signs in quite some time.
I never bothered to ask. Half of the help knows you by sight and the other half doesn't know what you're talking about.
06-13-2003, 08:14 AM
I just found NEW FIGURES at the Taylorsville Road Target - get there fast!
I got a Yoda/Chian, Chian 2-pack, Barris, & Aayla. They still had 2 Yoda's, 1 Barris, 1 Aayla, 2 Red Battle Droids, 2 Imperial Officers, 2 Padme's, and 1 Lama Su.
Go get them before the scalpers do! Finally new figures!
06-13-2003, 08:19 AM
It's really tempting to just get up and leave work right now and go, but I can't.
Any more of the clone trooper bikes at the J Mall KB? Is it worth driving over tomorrow?
06-13-2003, 08:24 AM
They had 6-8 last week when I went. I called though, and they held one for me. Give them a call, KB's is great about that.
I was at work too, and called them. WHen they told me they put out new figures, I suddenly had to go to Staples because we "NEEDED" Rewriteable CD's and cases (actually we did need them).
Make up an excuse and go get those figures! How about the bank. I've used that too. Good luck!
06-13-2003, 08:42 AM
I might have a legitimate excuse a little later today.
06-13-2003, 03:40 PM

OC I was there around 1:00 and they had three left, might better try and get there tonight or first thing tomorrow.
06-13-2003, 03:45 PM
Thanks for the tip! I'll do my best to get there tonight!
06-18-2003, 03:37 PM
I got to the J Mall KB Friday night and the speeder bikes were all gone.
In the course of 15 hours, I visited six Targets in the metro area and nary a new figure! The frustration continues...
06-18-2003, 06:54 PM
Well, I stopped by Target in E'town, no new figures, but they have re-posted their "We will only stock over night, please don't bug our employees as we will not help you" sign.
They must be gearing up for some new Star Wars shipments.;)
06-19-2003, 07:37 AM
The Clarksville KB got in a shipment of the 12" Gamorrean Guards. Definitely one box (I saw that one), maybe two. His face is not green enough, IMO. I will probably pick him up later.
06-23-2003, 04:27 PM
Radcliff Wal-Mart...SAGA GOLD....GO...NOW!!!!
They had/have Darth Vader Thrown Room Duel, Luke Thrown Room Duel, Snowtrooper, Jango repack, C-3PO repack!!!
They had/have Han Hoth, Chewie Mynock Hunt, R2-D2, Mace Total Control, Boba Fett Pit of Carkoon!!!
06-23-2003, 09:09 PM
Thanks for the heads up! I did manage to snag a Chewy, 2 Lukes on Gold Card and FETT POC on mangled card for opener. Wish I woulda got there this morning when you did! You are hard core. Everytime I say to myself "Go to WalMart" I figure naw just a waste of time, then BANG you score the new figs.
Well the early bird........................................you know.
06-23-2003, 10:06 PM
Nah, I have an unfair advantage right now, I'm on leave. lol
I didn't go back to Colorado because the van broke last week. I decided to take last week and this week off anyway, just to take a breather from work and clean house. I can't believe all the Ebay auctions I've been going through, selling off the old non-SW junk.
Anyway, I stopped by the storage facility today to pick up some more junk to sell and figured, hey there have been a lot of reports about SAGA Gold showing up, why not run around the corner and check Wal-Mart.
Anyway, after paying out $175.00 for non refundable H.S. reunion tickets and almost $400.00 in vehicle repairs my luck finally changed today. lol
I'm glad you finally scored a Fett to open, didn't they have any Vader's or Snowtrooper's left? I grabbed 2 of each, but they still had like 2-3 left.
06-24-2003, 08:34 AM
We expect reviews on the new figures!
06-24-2003, 08:38 AM
Just to save someone time, I went to the NA Walmart and Clarksville Walmart on my way to work this morning (7AM) and they didn't have anything new. Man, I want that new Vader & Luke!
06-24-2003, 08:45 AM
Thanks for the info, Drew. I was tempted to go there this morning but didn't.
06-30-2003, 08:21 AM
FYI -- I talked to a friend at the Clarksville TRU on Saturday. Renovations on the store are coming along and should be done by the end of July. No trucks are expected until after the renovation is completed. It's the same of stuff from months ago -- Jango pilot.
I did come across the flying R2 at the New Albany Wal-Mart on Sat., but some schlub removed the flame accessories and left the figure. How thoughtful and considerate.
06-30-2003, 08:55 AM
Man, I must have gone to the NA Walmart 3 times this weekend for various things and each time I checked the figures, and never saw any clue that they had ever put out new figures.
Actually, I went all over Clarksville, NA, and Jeff on Sunday morning and the only new thing I saw as a 12" AT-ST Commander at the Meijer in Jeff.
06-30-2003, 09:34 AM
The R2 figure was there on Saturday. I stopped by in the morning (before 8 a.m.) and noticed the package was torn to hell and taped back up. The more I thought about it, I thought the figure would be OK for display. I went back about noon, the figure was still there, but then I noticed that the flames were gone.
I'm guessing the other figures (if there were others) were gone before I got there.
07-01-2003, 08:35 PM
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
Tonight I stopped by the Radcliff Wal-Mart, and was HORRIFIED to see that they had expanded their Star Wars section...with old figures!!!! :eek:
I'm not just talking about a few older waves of figures, I mean these ALL looked like they had been sitting on the pegs for 6 months to a year!!! Luminara, Dexter, Royal Guards, Geo Warriors even a Han Solo (Endor Raid) or two.
Not only had they expanded their meager SW section to accomidate these dusty old figures, but they had more of them sitting on the shelf across the aisle?!?!
It's like Hasbro rounded up all these old figures from other stores and dumped them at the Radcliff Wal-Mart?!?!? :eek:
It made me want to vomit!!!
This is the ONLY store I have found any of the newer stuff in and now they will be packed with these peg warmers for the next few months! :mad:
There's no way anyone in their right mind will be ordering more Star Wars figures for this Wal-Mart any time soon. :cry:
07-02-2003, 08:00 AM
I take it the figures were still regular price?
07-02-2003, 08:09 AM
I can help you with the R2 Droid Factory Flight if you would like.
Just pm me or send me an email: Thunderstorm1@msn.com
Just to let you know!
SithKiller, that sure does suck about the Radcliff Walmart. I was at the wal-mart on preston last night, nothing but clone pilots and destroyer droids, and loads of cantina bar scenes!
Will we ever see new figures :(
07-02-2003, 08:15 AM
If the figs are regular price, that bites.
KB still has its buy one, get one free sale going on. I've been thinking about getting a couple more Geo warriors for a diorama I'm working on, as well as Lama Sus for generic Kaminos.
07-02-2003, 08:22 AM
your pm mailbox is full, could you make some space or just email me instead.
07-02-2003, 08:23 AM
I'm sending you an email, Thunderstorm. Thanks for the tip about the PM.
07-02-2003, 11:12 AM
Yep, all were still marked $4.77!!! :cry:
07-03-2003, 11:36 AM
Hey guys, I just read on yakface.com that KB's is having a sale this weekend, $1.99 per figure! I'm sure it's the old stuff, but the report said their local KB's (don't remember where they person lived who reported this) got in the old Yoda/Dooku waves. I'll buy a couple of those to open for $2!
07-03-2003, 11:39 AM
I haven't seen that mentioned on some of the other boards but I'm definitely going to check it out tomorrow.
07-03-2003, 11:44 AM
Just checked out the pix of your collection, Drew 724. I liked the idea of a shelf dedicated to one character.
The stair-like figure display, did you make that? It looks good.
07-03-2003, 09:37 PM
Hey, Walmart in Radcliff had some SW toys on clearance near the fish and pet stuff.
I myself picked up a set of the Cantina Scenes (All 3) for $3 each!!!!!
They only had one Greedo but I grabbed him.
They had a lone Nexu Beast and some POTJ figures for 3 bucks, they were battered but if you need openers, oh yeah they still had all the older stuff overflowing in the toy section.
If you need something to open then go grab a Momaw Nadon...go boy get it!!!HAHAHHA
07-04-2003, 07:45 AM
Yeah, I made all those shelfs myself, all for under $15 each!
i'm off to walmart to check for new figs, I'll let you know if they have anything!
07-04-2003, 08:35 AM
New Albany WM had 1 new Vader lightsaber, and nothing else. NA Kmart had nothing new.

Found the Vader/Luke Throne Room Wave at the Target on the corner of Hurstbourne and Taylorsville Road this morning. The bad thing is that they all had damaged bubbles. Went ahead and picked up some to open. They still had 1 Luke, 1 Vader, 1 C3PO, 1 Jango, 1 Han Hoth, and 1 Chewbacca Mynock available for those who do not care if they are not mint.
Notta at all three TRU's in Louisville!
07-05-2003, 03:05 PM
Flea Market report: I completely forgot about it until this morning and I missed out on all the newer figures (I'm sure they were too high anyway). But I did buy a Comm-tech Leia for $17 and an EU Leia for $22. There were 2 dealers that had a good selection of EU and hard to find figs for reasonable prices. Probably the best still left was an Amidala Battle and Sio Bibble, both were $25.
07-07-2003, 11:45 AM
KB's has a sale going: $1.99 for basic figures!
07-08-2003, 10:46 AM
KB's St. Matt got 30 cases of older figures in last night. The figures are all $1.99. I bought 3 Clone Troopers for $6! There were Dooku's, Yoda's, all the figures we were pining for a year ago. Their deluxe figures were on sale for $4.99. I bet all the area KB's got this shipment in. Hopefully this will be their last clearout sale b/f they get the newest figs!
07-10-2003, 10:49 AM
Target in E'town had the remains of the Han Hoth wave and the Darth Vader....Saga Gold....wave. Bubbles were crunched and cards were not exactly mint. Glad I already found these a week or two ago.
Anyway, Target on 31w (north of FT. Knox) had the Accessory Sets marked down to $8.48, all of then except the DS Trooper set...strange. TRU is still closed from M-Th. :mad:
Nothing else new to report!
07-10-2003, 11:25 AM
Bardstown Road Target got the new figures in yesterday. I went at lunch today and there were only 4 left. I got a Aayla and a Rehash Leia in the new packaging. There were 2 figures left, a rehash Maul and a Lama Su w/Clone boy.
07-10-2003, 08:06 PM
Sith Killer are you ever at work???HAHAHAA
You seem to be Johny on the Spot when it comes to the new figures.
If you have the cash could you pick up a Vader or any new figures if you see them and then just LMK. I will pay the same day. OR stash them for future pick up.....by me of course!
Every time I say to myself to stop I just say "Naw, just gonna be disappointed".
Dont go out of your way though, just 1 figure if its mint. Not crushed stuff, leave em for the kids.
07-11-2003, 02:05 AM
Grrrrr, I was at work from 0600-1730 yesterday. :p lol I had to do a clothing inventory with my soldiers. :Pirate:
But seriously, i find a whole lotta nothing most of the time, of course, spotting trends is a bit easier when you moderate the Just Found section. hehehe :D
Clone Wars seem to be hitting TRU, which is cool, because they are closed most of the week, and Target seems to be the place to get the newest figures.
I will keep an eye out for newer stuff and grab what I can.
07-11-2003, 08:54 PM
Target on Dixie (31W) had the remenants of the new Padme Wedding Wave today. I picked up the Red Battle Droid, they also had new Maul, Solo, and Leia which were not mint. If anyone is in need of these you may want to check them out. Also Target on Preston had their Exclusive Accessory sets for $8.48!
07-11-2003, 09:26 PM
I read on another board that someone hid the new figures behind several games there. Well I got there and there were new figures on the pegs, but nothing behind the games. I got Wat Tambor, Colman Trebor, Padme Wedding, another Yoda. Still need Luke and Vader, but I'm almost caught up! I went to the NA and Clarksville Targets too adn they had nothing.
07-13-2003, 09:36 PM
NA Walmart has 2 Eeth Koths, 2 2003 Tuskens, 1 Padme DF, and 1 Teebo if you need any of them.
07-18-2003, 10:13 AM
Re-packed Maul at the Target in E'town?!?! It was the only regular carded figure hanging there. I decided to buy it, just because I sold my loose MOTDS, so I wanted this one to open.
It looks like the new stuff is finally hitting KY!
07-18-2003, 10:23 AM
I haven't had a chance to check this week.
Check your PM, Sith Killer.
07-18-2003, 11:09 AM
It kills me because I checked there on Wednesday, then I stopped by this morning and they had 1 lone Maul!!! I knew I should have gone lastnight, but I was soo tired when I got home I fell asleep right after I took my shower and didn't wake up til 1 am to set my alarm.
07-18-2003, 02:40 PM
KB in St Matthews and KB in J-Mall both had the remainders of the new Clone Wars 3 Packs. Only one I saw was Destroyer Droid Launcher.
Both also had new Clone Wars AAT and Starfighter for $24.99
07-18-2003, 02:52 PM
Now I have a reason to stop by the Clarksville store on the way home from work!
07-18-2003, 03:11 PM
if they happen to have any extra of the clone trooper 3 pack, could you pick me up a couple after you get what you need?
07-18-2003, 03:34 PM
Not a problem!
07-18-2003, 03:57 PM
Guys, I just called KB's in Clarksville and they said they are out of the Clonetrooper 3 packs. I'm still at work, man! I wish I could have left early!
07-18-2003, 04:08 PM
You mean the Clarksville store actually got something new in for once? That's news right there!
07-19-2003, 07:49 PM
Radcliff Walmart got in a new case, they had the Vader TR Duel, 2 Han Hoths, Chewy Mynock Hunt and a couple of Snowtroopers. 3 Luke Bespin Duel and 3PO, and Jango on Gold Card.
All Bubbles were dinged and crunched but if you are an opener get there fast. just remember to look up on the top shelves, my vader almost eluded me.Also scrounge around the bottom shelf, some are mixed with the warmers.
Ohh yea, they dont have ANY Kobe Bryant figures anymore............
07-19-2003, 09:01 PM
I found the Clone Wars 3-packs at KB in the Towne Mall at E'town today.
07-21-2003, 06:46 AM
The new Target (old, relocated Preston Target) has its grand opening on the 27th, but a collector friend told me yesterday the store officially opens on Wednesday, the 23rd. Can you say new stuff!!
07-21-2003, 05:31 PM
Hey guys, I wanted to share my new shelf I built. I'm on a weeks vacation and didn't have any plans today, so I decided to build it.
It's massive, 8 feet by 4 feet and can hold 56 carded figures! It really uncluttered my display room. Here's a pic!
07-21-2003, 06:09 PM
Looks great Drew!
You should go into business!
07-22-2003, 02:25 PM
I like it!
07-25-2003, 06:49 PM
Does anyone know for certain if the Silver Boba Fett is going to be available this weekend at the Gen-Con Fair in Indianapolis? I don't want to drive all the way up there if it is not.
07-25-2003, 07:47 PM
Yes it will be. I got my 2 yesterday, and they are awesome. Well worth the drive, plus I got one autographed by Boba Fett himself, Jeremy Bullock!
07-25-2003, 09:14 PM
Awesome. Thanks. I'm heading up tomorrow. I hope they don't run out.
07-25-2003, 09:19 PM
Leaving in the morning myself with friends!
07-26-2003, 08:48 PM
Well, who else bought a Silver Fett this weekend? I bought 4 (me 2 plus my wife 2). I had Jeremy sign one and I brought my silver R2-D2 and had Kenny Baker sign it! Kenny signed it: To Damon Kenny Baker R2-D2 and Jeremy signed it To Damon be cool Jeremy Bullock "Boba Fett". It's soo great to be able to get them to really personalize these! Also, the autographs were $15.00 not the advertised $20.00!
I also noticed that David Prowse was there! I wish I'd had a Toy Fair Vader for him to sign! I didn't even know he was going to be there.
Oh well, I hope those of you that went, were able to get your silver Fett's!
07-26-2003, 09:15 PM
Boy, that line was painful. The only saving grace was that I brought two of my kids along, and snagged six fetts. We all lucked out this time, being so close to Indianapolis. I plan to use the extra fetts as trading stock in case the next "super-exclusive" figure doesn't show up around here. (The wife still doesn't know how much I spent on ebay for a loose Toyfair Vader)
07-26-2003, 10:14 PM
Anyone got a extra minty mint one to sell??
I have this one I got off a bastard seller on the bay and it was not as discribed!.
I will trade it for you openers and some cash or whatever.
07-27-2003, 02:35 PM
The majority of my money went toward Fett figures and autographs.
I got my Fetts, one of which is autographed by Jeremy Bulloch. Brought my silver R2 and got it autographed by Kenny Baker. And a Darth Maul figure by Ray Park. Park had the longest line in the early afternoon.
Also got my AOTC novel autographed by Bob Salvatore. Stood in line for over an hour for that.
Picked up a boxed Acklay for $16. I couldn't pass that one up. Also picked up a few SW Evolutions 'A' cards cheap.
07-27-2003, 02:37 PM
The Gen Con program said there was going to be a special SW guest but only said check at the show. Maybe it was Prowse. He wasn't pictured in the program.
I spoke with the actor who played Crix Madine. I asked if he knew if his deleted scenes were going to be included on the ROJ DVD. He didn't know but hoped so.
Yeah, the line to get in was bad. We waited an hour 15 mintues. The line still stretched out front at 4 p.m.
07-27-2003, 05:49 PM
Well I'm back from Gen Con today, I also picked up two fetts. I had one of them signed by Jeremy Bulloch and Daniel Logan. All the stars I talked to were real down to earth. Also I was able to meed Brad Dourif, John Rhys Davies, and Sean Astin from my other favorite movie trilogy the Lord of the Rings! In all a wonderful week end.
I am glad that I pre-registered, as some others have said, that line was very very long!
07-27-2003, 06:46 PM
Well, the wife and I got there early and it was on Friday so we only waited about an hour or so, plus we had our badges before the doors opened. So we didn't have to wait at all for the Fetts or the autographs, I think mine was the first autograph of the day for Mr. Baker, as it took him a minute or two to get his stuff out.
Unfortunatly my Fett's were in less than mint condition, I managed to get one in mint condition thge others have some warping/curling along one side of the card, though they look fine in the Pro Cases. ;)
08-01-2003, 03:57 PM
Just wanted to let everyone know that I found the new Cinema Scenes today at the Bashford Manor Target, they also had the new Clone Wars Vehicles, no new figures yet though.
08-02-2003, 09:25 PM
E'Town KBToys has the "new" lightsaber+3pack sets for $19.99!
Radcliff Wal-Mart has the Boba Fett wave along with the Throne Room Duel Vader wave, all of the bubbles were crunched. If you need any openers they had all of them there, Snowtrooper, C-3PO, Han Hoth, Chewie Mynock Hunt, etc.
08-04-2003, 08:16 AM
Sorry for the delay, guys. I was on vacation in Gatlinburg last week. You think the figure hunting is bad here? It's worst down there!! Three KBs and one super WM and nothing new!! At least the pegs weren't full of Jango Fett pilots.
My friends and I waited an hour and 15 minutes to get our passes at Gen Con. The longest line I had all day was for Bob Salvatore's autograph at the Del Ray booth -- an hour and a half.
08-04-2003, 08:58 AM
Hello all. Can you guys give a little help to a northen neighbor? I'm comeing down to your neck of the woods from Central IL.
I'm planning on going to the big flee market that happens over labor day weekend. So, can I expect to find some cool Star Wars stuff? How about other collectables like cards, Hot Wheels, and action figures? I've never been but I'd like to know what to expect. Any help or advice you guys can give would be very helpful.
Thanks so much!
08-04-2003, 09:09 AM
There is one vendor, White Owl Collectibles (don't hold me to that; I have his card somewhere and I'll double-check), in particular who has a good selection of SW merchandise at the Labor Day show. He only comes to the LD and New Year's shows. The show is divided in two rooms, and he's in the second room. In the past, he's been on the wall to your left, as you first walk in. He has two or three booths spaces and has LOTR and other collectibles, too.
There's plenty of Hot Wheels dealers in both rooms, and other collectible dealers are mixed in.
Hope that helps!
08-05-2003, 07:35 AM
Just found the new figures at St. Matt Target on my way in to work. I bought both Vaders (1 to open) and the Green variation Fett Pit of Carkoon. There were 2 Lukes, C-3po's, chewie mynock, han hoth, and rehash Jango left as of 8:10am. HH!
08-06-2003, 08:29 AM
The Clarksville Target had two each of the Clone Wars starfighter and AAT tank, and the GT Mall KB had the starfighter, as of last night. No new figures at either place. Target is in the process of rezoning for Christmas, so action figures are temporarily in two locations.
Nothing excepted clearanced cantina sets at the C'ville Wal-Mart, and nothing at Kmart.
Haven't checked the NA stores yet this week.
The C'ville TRU is still closed during the week. The official re-grand opening is next Friday, Aug. 15.
08-08-2003, 08:15 AM
Does anyone know if the Great Escape or the Zone sells star cases big enough for the silver Boba Fett?
08-08-2003, 08:55 AM
For you local guys who attended Gen Con on Sat., July 26, read on!!
Theforce.net is reporting that, because of the extremely long lines,
Gen Con is offering a $12 rebate to those attendees who purchased their passes on site on Saturday, July 26. You need to either send in the actual badge or a photocopy of the badge.
Sounds like Gen Con is trying to do the right thing.
Thought some of you might find that interesting. My friends and I are definitely going to try to get some of our money back.
08-08-2003, 10:58 PM
Does anyone know if the Great Escape or the Zone sells star cases big enough for the silver Boba Fett?
The Zone and Pulp Heroes used too. Just make sure they are the Star Case 2's. I've bought from both over the last 6 months and I bet they still have them.
08-09-2003, 04:19 PM
I picked up both screen scenes at the new outer loop target. Still have 1 of each as of 5pm!
08-11-2003, 08:04 AM
Thanks for the info, Drew. I'll get over there in the next week or so and check.
The Clarksville Target had new figures for once on Sat.; first time they had new figures in months. I found the mynock hunt Chewie.
The NA Target had the new packaged Kamino escape Jango on Sunday but nothing else.
Nothing new at C'ville TRU.
08-13-2003, 11:31 AM
Target on Dixie Hwy had the new Clone Wars Three Packs and the Saga Scenes this morning.
Hope this helps anyone looking for them!
08-13-2003, 11:38 AM
I drove by the ST.Matt TRU on my way to Taco Bell and saw kids going inside. When I went it, I found out it was their reopening (noon today) but they had 0 new Star Wars. Infact, their toys in general were 1/2 what they used to be.
I guess it's Florence, KY or Indy for any TRU exclusives.
I was really disappointed.
08-14-2003, 09:30 AM
Clarksville TRU was open on Wednesday, and nothing there either.
The Clarksville Target had the new CW jedi starfigher and AAT, but no new figures. There was shelf space for the new cinema scenes, priced $20. A gray dot was next to the tag.
08-18-2003, 08:03 AM
I thought I'd have better luck this weekend after having some good fortunate Friday night. Boy, was I wrong!
I found the CW destroyer pack at the Jeff Kmart, which I bought. It's nice to see that Hasbro went back to the TPM mold of destroyer droids. The new 12" biker scout and ewoks were at the Jeff Meijer. The scout looks great! The ewoks look like chunks of plastic. Not impressed at all.
Hit the east end of Louisville on Sat., and zip. Nada.
The Great Escape has most of the new figures for sale, but at Great Escape prices. $30 for the clone trooper three-pack?!?. And FYI, no star cases at GE.
Thoughts on the new and improved TRU. Not impressed, at least from a collectors standpoint. The Shelbyville Rd. TRU has less SW stuff than the Clarksville store. Don't know about Outer Loop and Dixie. I'll be ordering more from tru.com from now on.
08-18-2003, 12:00 PM
TRU St. Matt had the 2nd to newest 12" wave in stock this morning. Had Han, Lando Skiff, and AT-ST Driver. Nothing else new, but maybe this means they'll start getting new SW stuff!
08-19-2003, 11:16 AM
Hey guys, I just read at Rebelscum that Hurstbourne Target has several of the Gold Card figs.
08-20-2003, 03:25 PM
The gold cards are hitting the sunny side! I found the new Jedi Luke, snowtrooper and Jedi Vader at the Jeff Meijer. Nothing left except GC'd Jango Fett.
I also found the Hoth Han at the Clarksville Target this morning.
08-20-2003, 04:18 PM
Just wanted to let everyone know that the Target behind J-Mall had a ton of the new Saga Scenes today. about 10 of each. War Room and Council, anyone who still needs these should check them out. They were 19.99 each.
Also for anyone who collects Transformers the TRU on the Outer Loop had Unicron!
08-21-2003, 07:31 AM
Target St. Matt has newer figures in this morning. They have Teebo, E.Koth, several Imperial Officiers & Rebel Troopers, Padme DF, Tusken Ambush, and Library Droids. Good luck!
08-21-2003, 01:13 PM
Guys, the ST. Matt TRU had 2 Bounty hunter 4-packs as of noon. I tried to post sooner, but the forums were down.
I picked up a 12" Lando Skiff, but am having buyers remorse (and my wife didn't want me to spend any more $$$ this month) so I'm going to take it back unless one of you want it. Let me know within the next few hours b/c I'm taking it back on my home.
E-mail me at email@example.com if you want it. And if you don't make it to me by 5, at least you know that TRU will have one.
09-03-2003, 04:28 PM
Where has everyone been?
Anyway, I stopped by the TRU on Outer loop this morning and they had the remenants of the TRD Vader Wave and the New Clone Wars 3 Pack wave.
Other than that I haven't seen anything new.
Has anyone else?
09-03-2003, 04:34 PM
The Clarksville TRU had a CW destroyer droid pack on Monday. First real thing, other than the ships, I'd seen there in a long time.
Did find the SC Anakin at C'ville Wal-Mart on Saturday. That made my weekend!
09-03-2003, 04:40 PM
Glad to hear that you finally found the SC Anakin OC.
I am going to try to check some stores tonight if the rain holds up anything else you are looking for?
09-03-2003, 08:54 PM
Hit a few stores tonight,
St Matthews TRU had one of the Ultimate Bounty Hunter sets, no new figs.
KB has the $1.99 figure sale back, other than oldies that was all.
Target, Jmall, nothing
TRU, JMall Nothing.
Meijer Preston Nothing!
Oh well, maybe soon!
09-04-2003, 05:57 AM
Still looking for Yoda and the younglings. Shoulda got them from you a month or so ago!
09-06-2003, 07:49 PM
TRU on Dixie had the TRD Wave today!
Target on Dixie had all the Destroyer Droid Launchers you could want for your Clone War also.
Going to check a few more stores tomorrow. I'll post what I find!
