View Full Version : Thank You Wal-Mart!!!

Tonight I went to my local Wal-Mart, checking to see if anything new showed up. All I saw were endless GR Mace Windu's and FB Jango Fett's. So then I started digging through the pegs when I noticed a figure lying on the shelf right under my nose. It was a Geonosian Warrior...


...W/ INSERT!!!!!!!!! Wal-Mart has come through for me once again!

I don't understand what you mean by "w/ insert." What insert??

I think he means a back ground insert.

I found 13 out of 16 background figures at Wal-Mart, 1 I traded for and the other 2 I got at K-Mart, sure beat the heck outta eBay prices. :cool: Actually my Wal-Mart is still stocking some background figures, mostly Collection 2 Wave 1.

My Walmart still have a ton of inserts too. I don't think it has the Warrior, but most of the rest.

I got the geo warrior at Target :D

The Geonosian is one of the few figs I still see a lot of with the background. I wouldn't get too excited over that one.

Wal-Mart does have a good selection if you get there at the right time. They continually have new stuff in my area...

I didn't think I'd see anyone get excited over a 4/23 Geonosian Warrior, but come to think of it I haven't seen many in a while. Boba Jr., Female TR, Typho, and even R2 have been scarce lately.

i always have trouble finding R2's , but the female TR, Typho, and Boba Jr., are plentiful and mace is more of abundant around here, I get tired of seeing the stupid figure over and over.

well, it's going to be like that for us for a while macewindu87....they re-did the stores for fall/winter...that means harry potter and LOTR will get the attention for a while.

08-21-2002, 08:15 PM
they need to ditch LOTR figs., and the dumb harry potter stuff. Put SW over everything else.

well, they have to do that because they are a sponsor for HP and LOTR..or something like that...

08-21-2002, 08:22 PM
still they need to make a little more rom for more star wars figs. because all they would have to do is move the LOTR ,and HP figs. to a different aisle how hard c an that be?

pretty hard when they are pretty dumb. i swear, they wouldn't know what a yoda figure is if it bit them in the nose!

08-21-2002, 08:31 PM
i don't know about that because whenever i asked them if a shipment was in they asked me what fig. I was loking for so they could help me find it ,and I said Yoda. They said is it the little green guy with pointy ears , that loks like an elf and i told them that they got the green part right but i said i don't know where you got he looks like an elf from. The woman blushed and felt embarrased which made me feel bad because all she was trying to do was help me find what I was looking for.
