As soon as the new figures came out my wal-mart has been terrible on getting new stuff. But now they rule. I needed the yoda with the jedi chair. and my wal mart got it. I know everyone else pretty much already had that but I didnt. my wal-mart skipped the whole ephant mon destroyer droid and yoda set. and went right to acklay obi wan and geonosian dooku. but now they get the yoda set. they re stock saturday and have been doing it consantly. always getting new stuff. Its weird they just now got the yoda and destroyer but hey. Im hoping they get padme and aayla secura soon. I just cant believe my walmart has finally become usefull. I have hated it so long, but now it is great.I hope everyone else has good luck. The walmart lady told me how it works with wal-mart. she said wal-mart gets new shipments every night. and they put it out the next day. So keep watching your wal mart. I will tell everyone if I keep having good luck. but I fear I probably wont My findings today were Count dooku, clone trooper pilots destroyer droids, yoda with chair, and they had a bunch of anakin with the arm that comes off. I hope I keep having good luck, I hope all of you do. It has really been frustraiting in stores lately. I dont think clerks take you serious on how your trying to collect these things. But I will post my next findings and tell if my wal marts streak lives thanks for lookin

The Wal*Marts by me had all of their OTC figures on clearance for $3.00, they also had the VOTC figures on clearance for $7.00 (except the ROTJ wave).

Thanks for the offer Val but unfortunately I didn't check my auto emails until this morning. The only thing that I could even think of that I may want any time soon would be the Millenium Falcon if it's found for those ungodly low prices.

Slicker,

should I figure $12 to $24 is a good price range for a Falcon in decent shape.

I know one Target had them for $24 last week and two WM had them for $29-$35 as of Wed.

$12-$25 sounds good. I went to the WM that usually has a good selection and they literally had not one single SW figure. So for me that makes all of the big stores having not a single figure above the Saga line.

Wal-Mart here has them for 25 dollars. I picked up the Lego Version instead for 55 bucks.

That's another thing I haven't seen anywhere including WM is the SW Legos. TRU has a couple but nothing that I don't already have.

I've even asked some employees where the figs were stocked and they said where they should be and I found nothing. It's just another case of not stocking the shelves.

I am between two WM (each 15 min away) and one has one falcon left sealed in a non mint box for $29 and the other has 8 or 9 as $35 each left on the shelves.

Actually I'm doing good on the action figure front. I just bought a 6 figure OTC lot off ebay for $25 and I've got a couple of more on the way. As for the Falcons I'm gonna have to pass right now. I'll keep checking in my area but if nothing near me then you'll get a PM. Thanks Val.

My damn Wal-Marts havent put out new figures in three weeks. Same damn GH and Unleashed and POTC and CW figs sitting there.

The stores near me are Walmart, Kmart, Target and TRU... none of them have much to offer in the way of figures or legos or any toys... nothing worth looking at anyways. I don't much like all the new line stuff, tho the unleashed stuff looks coolio. I basically stick with mine OT stuff and the unusual items, I like being against the grain when it comes to collecting LOL

You stated you live in L.I. There are a ton of touy stores out there. Many TRU's, Targets and K-Marts. They all cant be that barren. How far do you live from Queens and Brooklyn to go there?
