I'm just north of Akron. No Darth Maul wave around here. The wave that includes Pilot Obi-Wan finally made an appearance about 1.5 weeks ago. Not one Yoda sighting yet.

I'm off to the local K-Mart for the sale. Wish me luck.

Anyone finding the 12" Jango Fett? If so, where?

I bought one months ago from an online store but didn't open it at the time. The plan was to find a second one and open that. Now, 2 months later and I have yet to see my first 12" Fett in any store (Kmart, Walmart, Target, TRU). Are they just late to ship to OH, in small quantities or am I just missing them?

Another question for you Ohio Collectors. I'm new to this forum and aren't too familiar with shipping histories. How does Ohio usually fair in the big scope of things when it comes to arrival of the new waves. Are we usually within a couple weeks of the initial appearance of waves in other states or do we significantly lag behind? Sometimes it seems to me that we're a wave behind some other states but not nearly as far behind as others. Just curious if anyone has noticed a trend.

hango fett
07-22-2002, 03:05 PM
to answer the shipping question....they do good and they do bad. it all depends on how big the wave is i think.....remeber, took our wally world 2 months to get the han wave in and palpy wave in. but to the west, they got the massiff wave in ahead of the release date by 2 days.............................................. ................................

Jedi_Bates
07-22-2002, 06:37 PM
hmm... its not like that around here in NW ohio, (near the border of MI)
in my area, we still havent even gotten the han and chewie waves in!!!
can you beleive that!?!?!?

hango fett
07-22-2002, 08:58 PM
belive me! just wait it out jedi bates! do not pay any more than you would pay at wal-mart for them because in a while, they will clogg the pegs!

Exhaust Port
07-22-2002, 09:02 PM
Boy, our first shipment of the Han/Chewie wave came and went pretty quickly and I thought I had seen the last of those figures. Within the last 2 weeks every shelf is crammed with them making the older peg warmers nearly invisable to the naked eye. Palpy is the only one that hasn't made an appearance in any large numbers. I found one and bought him luckily since I haven't seen any since.

Hey guys I just found this thread about Ohio so I'll try to post my finds here and in the just found section. I seen the 12" Jango at TRU at Parmatown about a week ago but they wanted 39.99 for it. I was lucky enough to get one at K-Mart a few months back for (if I remember) 32.99. Maybe check K-Mart out. We'll be talking to you guys....HH.

Went to TRU at Parmatown-they had 2 Obi-Wan SF. All the Chewies and Hans were gone. I'm still looking for Ki-Adi and Teemto. Has anyone seen these in Ohio??? Also has anyone seen the new Yoda, 3P0, or Acklay. The 12" Jangos were all gone from TRU. We'll talk to you...HH.

well, me and hango go to the same places and he said he was going to troy wal-mart today. but i haven't seen anyones called teemto or anikan skywalker tatooine attack or the darth maul yet.

hango fett
07-24-2002, 09:19 AM
yep. i'll let you guys know. i highly doubt they will have ANY new stuff since the pegs are flooded with the obi-wan wave and palpy wave. but wish me luck anyhow!:mad:
hango:stupid:

hango fett
07-24-2002, 12:17 PM
ok! found 2 dookus 2 yodas 2 hd anis (peg versions) and 2 chewies at the meijer we went to. i also got the slave 1 at wal-mart. (both places are in troy, ohio)
still no darth wave

I'm from Northeastern Ohio. There are lots of Teemto and Ki-Adi here. I got Teemto, but I dont want Ki-Adi. I just found Djas too.

hango fett
07-24-2002, 01:59 PM
oh, BTW, the wal-mart i was talking about has had alot of the new figures sold. there were no chewies or djas there today. han and obi-wan still have alot left.

Jedi Drew
07-24-2002, 06:15 PM
Hey Darth-where did you find Teemto and Ki-Adi??? Target, TRU, or Wal-Mart??? PM me if you don't want to post where you found them in case the scalper boys are reading this :eek: :eek: :eek: Thanks and HH.

still only 7-8 members who live in ohio? there has to be more........

Darth Sidious
07-24-2002, 08:42 PM
Let the scalper boys read it, they dont know exactly where I am. The figures were in my Wal-Mart. That is the only place I've seen them. I'd personally like to see the scalpertrash search all over NE Ohio just to find a $5 figure and sell it on ebay for $8. :evil: Oh, and no offense to anyone who has scalped a few times. Scalpertrash are the people who steal figs from little kids or sell Yodas "With rare bent card variant (etc.)" for $200.

There are more collectors from Ohio on this site but don't post on this thread because they don't know about it. I know for a fact that JEDIpartnr, Dexter, and Fettdave are all from the Cleveland area. I may go on a hunt today...if I find anything I'll let you guys know. HH :D :D

I'm glad you finally found them hango, congrats. I also don't know why there are no Mauls/Anakins. Very strange...

hango fett
07-25-2002, 06:49 PM
well, when you saw them at the wal-mart, did you see alot of djas and hd anikan? i noticed that there were 2 more hd anikans and 2 more djases (which hadn't been htere prevouisly.) i bet anything that they ship with the palpy wave!
hango

Darth Sidious
07-25-2002, 07:24 PM
There was plenty of Djas...But no HD Anakins. I only saw HD Anakin once and I got him.

oh, yeah! i forgot to tell the story of the problem in the checkout with these figures! we went over to the self scan things and when we went to place one in the bag, it said please remove the item. so we did. then the girl who was at the desk thing came over and said "is it not taking it?" i said "yeah." she took them over to the desk and came to find out that they weren't even in the computer yet! wild, huh!

Lol, yes, that is quite weird. Im surprised my WM was up to date with that. They are usually so unorganized it is pathetic. Mostly people using a credit card to buy a candy bar or something... But, oh well, I guess it happens.

hango fett
07-25-2002, 08:36 PM
that was the second time that has happend to us. once, back when the action fleet where out in full force, we got 2 that were not supost to be out yet and they weren't in the computer either!!! too weird!

went to TRU a few days ago and still found nothing...
I think the TRU that is nearby me went a little to crazy buying too many cases of the first few waves. I hope TRU gets impatient before i do and decides to put a ton of old figs on clearance, 4.99 for a captain typho?!?!?!? no way...

hango fett
07-26-2002, 07:24 AM
i think wal-mart are our best bets because they are now $4.77 which comes to $5.06 with tax. plus there are no TRU's close to us. the closeset one is about 40 miles south of us.

Was at Wal-Mart in Strongsville yesterday-they have the Chewie wave. Man, was the toy dept. a mess. No sign of the Acklay, Ki-Adi, or Teemto. :confused: :confused:

I just got back from target and they have nothing worth buying. They didn't even have the Bespin (Luke, etc.) wave! The Target in my area really needs to got new figures, the only one I have ever bought there was Amanaman.

Darth Sidious
07-27-2002, 07:57 PM
I was wondering if the new Saesee Tinn and Plo Koon were worth buying if you have the POTJ ones (Which are great, imo)? I am by no means a completist, I still dont have a Padme from either EPI or EPII because I havent liked any of them. But I am fond of Jedi. Are these new Koons and Tinns much different from the old ones? Whenever I see them I can't help but think their bodies are too small for their heads, etc....

hango fett
07-27-2002, 09:28 PM
yep. sasse is ok. just do not take off the clear tap on his hand! big mistake on my part! but plo koon is very cool!

Nothing at WM today, but thats not the reason I posted this. I went to phar-mor or something like that and there were a TON of old figures. POTF2 Tuskens, Momaw Nadons, a Sandtrooper, Purchase of the Droids Cinema Scenes, EPI Anakins, Palpatines, Jar Jars and once (Not today) I even found a POTF2 Orange Card Lando....But I didnt have any $. :( Just thought I'd let you all know.

I successfuly talked my mom into taking me to TRU after my long dentists appointment and droppin off stuff at the post office. The cool think was, my mom dropped me off there for thirty minutes! The bad thing was they had absolutely nothing new, and when i say nothing i mean NOTHING, not a thing:mad: They didnt have anything remotely new like the Han and Chewie waves!!!
I've become very dissiappointed in the TRU around here, all i got was R3-T7...

The big TRU warehouse is in the Youngstown area so you guys are more likely to get stuff sooner and be better stocked. Perhaps I should drive out that way and continue my search for the 12" Jango's.

I'll take what I can get. I'm hoping this is the calm before the storm. Soon we'll see new figures filling the pegs and shelves. The local Walmarts are getting near empty at this point.

hango fett
07-31-2002, 08:42 PM
the main one we go to is getting pretty slim about there selection...the pegs only have (the majorty of them) about 3-6 figures on them opposed to the usual 8-11.

Alright....went to my local Target to get the new Springsteen CD (that rocks-:D :D if you care) and talked to the toy stocker and told me that they HAD the accessory sets but a guy came in this morning and bought ALL of them. :mad: :mad: Now I'm gonna check E-Bay to see if this SCALPER has them on line at 25.00 or more I'm ****ed off.........

The tag read $9.99. My wife just got back from Target (again-we do have other stores around here :D :D ) and asked the "Toy Guy" about the accessory sets. He said that he put out another case this morning and guess what?? Another "Guy" came in and bought all of them.........now I really think that 1) the "Toy Guy" is a lier or 2) we have a real scalper problem around here. Well, there is always tommorow...HH :frus: :frus:

Exhaust Port
08-01-2002, 12:25 PM
Sounds like an inside job. Doesn't Target have that collectors policy on some of their items? They limit how many individual figures you can buy at one time? I can't remember if it's Target where I've seen this.

If it is, I would tell your story of having the previous 2 cases sold to 1 maybe 2 individuals and ask that they limit the number sold to an individual. Customer Service should be a big priority for them and it doesn't help by letting a few come away with so much.

hango fett

it does sound like and inside job or the scalpers are hovering around the SW figure isle all day waiting for them to be put out...

Let me see what I can do because JEDIpartnr wants a set and another SW collector (who isn't on this site) that I'm friends with wants a set. I don't know if there is a limit of how many you can buy but I'm sure there is to deter the scalpers. All I can tell you hango is that I'll try my best to get you a set.....:cool: :cool: HH

I am not awfully familiar with the city, but I hit every TRU, Target, Wal-Mart, and Meijer that I could find. You are right about Dayton sucking.

Hey guys, can I hang out with the Ohio boys for a while? I'm in Indiana and no one here seems to want to be in a club. I guess that they would rather not have any help finding stuff. I can't even get anybody to post in the "Just Found" section. I think that it is a little rude.

I want all of the members who see this to send me their personal want lists and I will make a strong effort to find at least one item on your list for you.

The TRU had 5 X-wings and about the same number of Palpatine figures. No other new figures found on any of the pegs. Too bad most of the Palp. were pretty beat up.

No problem. I try to help out if I can. Yeah, Jango is starting to warm the shelves here now.

It is $10 at Target. It would probably be around $4 to ship. Normally I would say save the $4 and keep looking for it, but you would most likely spend that much in gas driving from store to store.

just went to the same places we wne to yesterday and still nothing. but the wal-mart did scrunch up all the figures into about 2 3rds of what they were yesterday meaning there are now about 8 pegs empty. also, they arranged the figures better! they all have the same figure in the same row (they put all the same figures together). smart move! but other than that, no new figures, no new deluxes, no new unleashed...etc...

I also went to WM today, and the only thing new was the Action Fleet ships. The guy there said that they were getting a huge Star Wars shipment in less than 2 weeks. Also, my Kroger marked their figs down to $3 and the Reek down to $8. So everyone might want to check their local Krogers.

That's great to hear that WM is expecting some big SW shipment. As we all know their shelves/pegs have been dormant for quite a while. Let's hope it's a nice big pay off for us.

Hango, I hit both my local Targets today and they've stripped of the accessory packs. I know you're working on a deal with jonboy but if you're still turning up nothing in the future post it here. One of the Targets here is pretty good with keeping the shelves freshly stocked. <knock on wood>

Hello all. I hit the Target in Muncie again tonight and managed to find a few accessory sets. I now have all of the sets that I was wanting. So, every set that I see from now on I will post and get them for whoever needs them. The guy said that they should have more in next week.

I was at Meijers the other day and I FINALY got the frikin Obi Wan Pilot and Chewbacca! I was about ready to quit collecting if i didnt find those 2 soon... JK i would never quit collecting, but today my friend told me he found one hoth accessory pack on the ground at target!!! unfotunatley it was the last pack, so it looks like Jedi_Bates wont be getting the accessory sets:(

Oh yeah, my favorite electronic lightsaber is obi wans and my favorite plastic one is the the one with a purple blade. I own the one with obi wans hilt and the green blade and i do have to say, its quite sturdy... ;)

Hey guys!!! I went on a little hunt today and ran across a Yoda if anyone still needs him. I bought it so it is in hand if you want it. Also, the Target in Anderson has the Unleashed Maul and Jango on clearance for $7.90 if anyone is interested. Nothing else though.

Hi all, today my dad and I were running some errands and we passed by target, i asked if we could check for the sets just for the heck of it and he didnt mind. I went strait to the toy section and they had nothing new... but a few aisles over were the accessory sets and the new action fleet. I got none of the action fleets but i got the Death Star, Arena, and the Endor Accessory sets :D !!! (Didnt get the hoth cuz i only brought 35 dollars and the sets are 10 a piece, but hopefully i'll be able to get it some other time.

jonboy
08-08-2002, 07:22 PM
I am glad that other people are finding the sets as well. I think that there will be plenty to go around eventually. I also think that the Endor set must be the most popular since I have been seeing them less than the others.

I thibk that we should all get together sometime and do some swapping and just hang out and meet each other.

Jedi_Bates

Thats a good idea jonboy! If we planned something enough in advance and all made sure and marked it on our calendars then im sure everyone would be able to.

could it be in ohio? i can't realy convince my dad into letting me go way up north in ohio or way down south in ohio or over to indiana just to meet people. the farthest i could go would be one of 4 possibilitys....greenvile ohio, dayton ohio, columbus ohio( not until next year, maybe), and lima ohio. or if anyone knows where troy ohio is, then we can meet at the wal-mart there! plus, my dad isn't very much into the "talikng to people online" thing. he sasy i shouldn't, but i know you guys wouldn't do anything unless someone took a brand new figure from your hands!!

Well guys, I have some bad news. I am stepping down as VP. A few people around here have contacted me about forming a club. I can't really turn my back on fellow Hoosiers. I hope you understand. Good luck in all of your collecting and I hope the hunt is always successful. Chow!!!

I didnt go hunting anywhere today but i know for a fact there is nothing new, becuase here we never get anything new at all. Oh well, atleast I may find something when I go up to Traverse City MI, oh wait a tick... i just spent all my cash on the Acessory Sets! Shucks, looks like i'll have to do a little begging for my mom to buy for me...

I only know my schedule a month in advance and can't make any guantees. I haven't had much luck getting days off that I've wanted before. In the last year I've had to work x-mas day, new years eve and day as well as my b-day. I'll try to make whatever plans are decided on.
