Ok not a problem, didnt know you were from this area. My apologies.

I was starting to think you were staking my posts. I am in Omaha, and again, only posted here so I could perhaps hit up a person who might be interest in my local area.

Thanks for keeping the boards clean.

Didn't they just remodel the Saddle Creek building? Maybe it just seemed different the last time I was there. Not that I ever really shopped there, but what happened with Younkers at Crossroads?

They did remodel, but i want to say its been a couple of years already. Ive never really visited that Target frequently, though it has been the site of one of my most vivid toy hauls when i was a child. I wont go to detail about it because the toys werent Star Wars related, but just thinking about that day brings a tear to my eye. :love: Younkers left Crossroads, much like many stores seem to be doing now. The food court used to be full of restaurants, now there are several that are closed up. The Target could be a big boost to the mall if it helps bring in more traffic. But the move hasnt been without some controversy. There arent any other retail stores around the Saddle Creek area, so the people in that neighborhood are going to have to head out a bit further.

I was posting here because these people are local to me and I thought perhaps they might not visit the trading post area.

I check the trading threads quite frequently and im sure msjedi does also. We are relentless in our pursuit of the plastic crack.:yes:

You know.. I suppose I should have known that since that is the primary reason I am here now.

As for the Target thing, I feel a little bad for those that live down in the Saddle Creek area now having to travel a few extra miles to get to a store like that. I bet that Family Dollar down the road though is loving it, I have a feeling that thier business will pick up a lot after Target closes.

I just got back from Target and Walmart in Bellevue. Target had none of the new figures, but it had a couple of Clone 3 packs w/ the red clone, TIE fighters, collectors cases, and several of the older ROTS figures, like Mace Windu. The bad thing about this Target is there is no machine for me to punch in the DCPI #'s into, so ive got no idea if they have the exclusives in or not. Walmart was even more disheartening. They didnt have anything past Pilot Obi, but they have dozens of 500th Vaders laying around, i wouldnt be surprised to see them in the clearance aisle one day, they just dont seem to be moving.

Same here. It's also the spot where I dumped my evil younger brother on the floor while pushing him in a cart.:twisted:
Seriously, I did make some killer hauls there, too, but my favorite was always Children's Palace, which coincidentally, was right next to the Crossroads (it's a Best Buy now, I believe). Don't know if you guys ever hit that place for SW toys, but I was scored a ton of vintage ROTJ figures there for 89 cents apiece. Ahh, the good old days

dashrender
10-07-2005, 05:21 PM
I recall the Childrens palace. It was only there for about a year after I moved here before it was closed down. I don't recall the prices I was only about 9 at the time, and didn't pay attention to those sorts of things at that time.

Boy how Omaha has changed in the last 20 or so years.

The Target in the Mall of the Bluffs had several of the following figures, Jett Zukassa, AT-RT driver, Pilot Obi, Mustafar Sentry, Utaupan Warrior, and ShockTroopers. I ended up buying one of the Shocktroopers for myself. They also had the new TIE. Unfortunately this Target doesnt have the price scanners that you can punch in the numbers for either, so i have no clue whether the exclusives are in or not.

You found a lot of stuff today, im glad to hear you were able to find the deformed Maul. I just got back from the Target in Bellevue and they didnt have anything new. Im going to try and hit three stores tomorrow, though im going to two for sure. I will let you know what all i come across.

Yesterday i found the Wookie Commando at the Walmart on 84th street. He appeared to be the only new figure there, i didnt see anyone else. I went to the TRU on Dodge St. and picked up the Hoth Battlepack, Obis Starfighter, and a Shocktrooper. Obis ship was little more expensive than i thought it would be, but i really like the color scheme of it so i went with it.

dashrender
10-16-2005, 04:41 PM
I don't know about you, but the two Targets I visisted today didn't have the exclusives out. I asked about them and they brought them out. I know that the new shelf set was due today, I had 3 differnt stores tell me that. But alas they didn't do it.

Target 180 and Center has the 5 pack clone troopers in the Assult pack.

msjedi
10-17-2005, 11:20 AM
Target on 180th and Center had 6 each of the Lava figures as of 10:00 am. They also still have Plo Koon Starfighters and 3 or 4 of the Attack on Coruscant Battlepacks.

I just got back from the Target in Bellevue, they still have yet to put out any type of exclusives are far as i can tell. I didnt see any pegs for them to go on either. There is a sale going on for Star Wars toys (i believe its 10% off) but the only thing i they have that i want is the Droid Trifighter.

I am still looking for the last 12 figures. Anyone have a bead on them?

You can find about 12 pairs of the Target Exclusive at Target 132 and Maple. They also had Plo Koon's Fighter. Though they only had about 10 figures left, all old ones...

Nothing new at the Walmart in Bellevue.

Anybody know if Walmarts going to put the ROTS dvd out at exactly 12:01 am on Tuesday of next week? I figure since i work by a Walmart and dont get out until 11 i may be able to just hang around for an hour until the magic time happens.

10-24-2005, 02:49 PM
I don't know about Walmart, but Best Buy on 72 and Dodge will be. And So will the local 501st. There will be several Stormtroopers, and a vader there, perhaps even a Leia in Metal Bikini and more.

Hope to see you there.

I may pass by, it really depends on whether the Walmart near my work place has them out at exactly 12:01 and how much (if any) homework ive got to do for the next school day. Less than a week away though, so im really excited.

Leia in a metal bikini? It might be a little too cold to go through with that. Its starting to get chilly around here.

Im not really interested in them, im actually hoping i dont see them that way i dont have to fight with myself whether to get them or not.

I went to the Walmart in Bellevue to buy dog food (it takes two 40 pound bags of dog food to keep my dogs fed for about 10 days) and found a lone R4-P17. I must have just missed out on the others.

A big public thanks to msjedi for helping me find a Republic Gunship yesterday. Id missed the opportunity the first time he directed me towards one but this time i was able to grab one. Thanks!

Yesterday at the Walmart in Council Bluffs, Iowa, i found Meena Tills for the first time. Strangely, he was the only new figure on the pegs along with the usual pegwarmers.

As of right now its looking like the Bellevue Walmart is going to be where i pick up ROTS tonight. Hopefully i run across some figures too.

I hope so.:) You know, that was the first thing that crossed my mind too once i grabbed him. I tried to see if they were loose by shaking the card around but i didnt hear any jiggling so i figured he was okay. I probably would have bought him even if he was damaged like the first one you had seen, no telling if i would run across it again.

I wonder if Dash was able to get one last week. I sent him a PM about the location and all but i noticed that it wasnt until later in the day that he said he would call TRU.

Today at 12:01 i grabbed the DVD at Walmart and i also found the Clone 3 pack. I really like these clones more than the first couple of three pack ones that came out. I also managed to get my younger brother Bly and Gree, though he wont get them until Christmas.

dashrender

I will return and demand one!!

11-02-2005, 01:28 PM
For whatever reason the exclusive Holo Emperor did not excite me so im going without one.

Today at the Walmart in Bellevue i found myself another Wookie Commando. The only other new figure was a Neimodian Commander.

I found both Seperation of the Twins figures at the Walmart in Bellevue. There were a couple of each still left there, along with a couple of R4-P17s too. I was under the impression that these were going to retail for $10, so the $4.77 price tag brought a smile to my face.

11-30-2005, 03:34 PM
I haven't seen the holo's or blue stormie's in a few weeks. I need one more of each.

I too was suprised by the Twins being only 4.77 each. I was more than happy to pick them up.

Are you talking about the DVD-figs? The ones in the same packaging as the DVD's?

I didn't think these were impressive enough for thier price tag. Perhaps they will fall in price and then I will get them.

I haven't been able to find them. Either in Bellevue or Irvington Walmarts. I hope they have a second release to stores.

I am looking for the BK Bail Organa. I managed to get all of the other, and a few more for trades, but I didn't snag a Bail in time.

Anyone have one for trade?

What is anyone else looking for?



Also, I hear a rumor that the Spud trooper was only being packed 1 to a case, i.e. 11 Darth Taders, 1 Spud trooper..

perhaps that's why they are so thin right now..

Dash, the younger brother does have it now. Sorry i couldnt help you out. Did you ever find that figure i hid for you at the Target Mall of the Bluffs? Hopefully this upcoming year i can be of better assistance to you.

I just wanted to give a big public thank you to msjedi and trandoshan666 for helping me out this year. Even though trandoshan666 no longer lives here in Omaha he was able to help me obtain the first Target exclusive clone earlier this year while he was visiting town. Msjedi has been a huge help to me ever since the day he first started posting here. I cant sing his praise enough, hes always finding things and sending me in the right direction for them. Without him, i would have missed out on several figures this year. Thanks for your help, youre both class acts. I hope you both have a Merry Christmas and an awesome New Year, heres hoping that 2006 will be full of fruitful hunts for all of us.

Today at the Target in Bellevue i seen the Star Wars Tranformers of Boba Fett and Anakin. First time i had seen them so i was a bit surprised. I dont think msjedi or Dash collect these, but im actually hoping to get some of them for my birthday.

No sign of the Geonosis wave at the Target.

I am looking for the Star Wars Transformers, but I found the latest wave about a week ago.

I lucked out today. I was at Target on Saddle Creek and managed to get a full set of the latest waves. Including the two Clone troopers. ****es me off that Hasbro only puts one of each of these per case. They also have one one Jango Fett in this case as well, but the others, the ones that the average person does not give a crap about, there are two. Why? Could someone please explain to me why Hasbro would purposefully want to short sales? Do they really think that stores will buy more cases just to get more of these clones? I bet that's not the case, I'm sure that stores buy the same amount regardless of what's in the case. Though I suppose somone could show me numbers and prove me wrong.

Sorry for the rant...

Best of luck to the rest of you in finding these clones...

I'll definitely let you know if I find any lieing around...

Anyone hear any word from Walmarts on when they will see this wave?

Dash, I was at Walmart today @132nd and L Street and they had the left overs of the Geonosis wave hanging on the pegs (Yoda, C-3PO, Poggle). No sign of Scorch or the Clone Trooper. So, they must have hit this weekend.

The Walmart and Target in Bellevue are the stores i check most often. On the weekends i might go out to the Target in the Mall of the Bluffs. Other than that the Target and Walmart on 84th are my other stores. Aside from them i dont hit the western stores too often.

Well then you probably don't get hit by the scalpers as much. I ran into a major scalper on this side of town. He buys stuff to sell on consignment at krypton Comic. This is a bit maddening, but free markete and all, I don't complain too loadly...

kool-aid killer
02-24-2006, 01:06 AM
I actually heard them talk about the guy before at Krypton. I guess they dont "own" a lot of the Star Wars figures (at least newer ones) and so they sell them for this guy and get a little bit of the cut, hence why a lot of times they are about $13 each. It sucks, but i dont spend too much time dwelling on it. I just hate when i see something pegwarming at a store and that same person is trying to push it for an extra $10.

I stopped by Walmart on 132nd and L toady around 9:00 and they had put out another case of the Geonosis wave. However, Scorch and the clone trooper were already gone but, if you are looking for anybody else form that wave they were all still hanging on the pegs.

I didnt want the General so i left him, along with Anakin and Obi wan. I want them (namely for their cloaks) but will wait, im sure they wont be hard to find. No sign of Foul though, which was surprising.

The Unleashed set has two rebel troops, one standing and the other sitting with a gun between his legs. Along with them comes the large turret and the big satellite dish weapon they had along their trench.

OK, you're talking about the battle packs. I decided after buying the first two that they are something I just rather not spend my money on. More money for Sideshow and GG.

Nothing at the Bellevue Walmart, aside from a ton of Hoth Vaders. They are doing a lot of reshuffling in there, so i may hold off on going for a couple of weeks.

I stopped by Target on Saddlecreek tonight. They are moving next week to the new store on Dodge and 72nd. They are taking an additional 50% off all items that have a clearance price tag. So, it only makes Grievous and the VOTC Han and Greedo about $4.50 each.

I went to the Target in Bellevue yesterday, and managed to find another Sandtrooper. The pegs were full, but they had a lot of pegwarmers. Momaw Nadon probably made up the majority of the guys there.

I went to the Target in the Council Bluffs Target at The Mall of the Bluffs yesterday and bought another sandtrooper, H&V clonetrooper, and Darth Vaders Tie fighter. I need to look over my ships again, i think i may already have the Tie. They had two Hem Dazons, in case anybody is missing him.

The Walmart in Bellevue didnt have any of the new Endor figures, they still had a decent amount of Tattoine figures sticking around. They recently remodeled over there, so the action figures have been moved up towards were the bicycles are at, which have remained in the same location. I ended up buying a Ninja Turtle toy today instead.

I didnt see any new Star Wars figures at the Walmart on 120ish and "L," just a few Cantina figures and one Poggle. I havent found any Endor figures yet, and havent read any report of them either on other Star Wars sites. Heres hoping they appear soon, i really want the Ewok.

My brother found me some of the Endor wave figures, the Moff, C-3PO, and the Ewok. When i asked him about the Emperor he didnt recall if there was one, and said he didnt find any of the Death Star Troopers. These were found at the Walmart on 84th about two hours ago.

Yeah, I picked this DS Gunners up. I saw the Hasbro lady putting the case up. These where the last two that I needed. I know when I was there the Emperor was there, but I can't say for how long.

I'll keep my eyes peeled for more, I believe that DarthKozy has some for trade as well.

Hello all. I have little to report as of late. I did manage to get a TRU Degoba Xwing from Oakview on Tuesday this week. I also picked up a Viper Mark VII (I think) for the mini Titanium series. That leaves me needing only a Raptor.

On another note, Does anyone play video games here? I downloaded the new Lego's Star Wars II Demo. Man, I was super suprised. It was a blast. I never played the first one, but I am now going to buy this one.

Anyway, talk to you all later!

Hey, i must have missed you by an hour or two because i went to the TRU on Dodge St also today. Nothing really special there, i like the X-wing but i dont think i will pick it up unless it goes on sale, and i dont expect that.

I did pick up one of the x-wings. I really like it. I suppose the question is now, do I keep it? TRU on Dodge had one of the Tie Fighters (huge wings)
still on the shelf, but no more x-wings.

I'm trying to recall the last thing I found that I picked up. Probably one of the Titanium figs.

Though I'm so happy to report that my George as Stormtrooper finally showed up. Apparently someone wrote the wrong state and zip for my information. Fortunately that address did not exsist in that city so it was sent back to hasbro where they found their mistake and sent it to me this time. YA!

Anyone here looking forward to playing Legos Star Wars II? I never played the first one, but I have to say I love the demo for the second one.

Well until next time.

What bad timing. I will be in Minneapolis this weekend.

You should check out the Westroads. There is a store there on the main level (lower level) that has star wars toys right now. You will need to look though, when you walk by, it looks like there is only Nascar stuff, but go inside and to the back.. you'll find a lot of SW there.

msjedi
09-09-2006, 08:45 PM
I don't know of any good flea markets around. If you want to stop by Crypton Comics, they have a nice selection of star wars. All though, most of the items are a bit overpriced ( South of Center Street on 84th in the plaza with Shopco). Other than that, there is always Targets, Walmarts, and TRU's. Hope you have a good time hear in Omaha.

Rebel Trooper, Gragra, Naboo Soldier, Dud Bolt & Mars Guo, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Rep Been. I think I took the last Luke Skywalker and Holographic Maul.

At first i didnt see anything new, but then as i was thumbing through the pegs i seen the Vader with electricity flying around his dome and padawan obi-wan, and a naboo guy. I picked up the naboo guy, figuring that i really dont need the other two, at least right now. Obi wan looked okay, though.

I went to the TRU on Dodge St. today, they didnt have much figure wise, but plenty of TIEs and a couple of AT-ATs. The more i look at the AT-AT, the more i like it so i need to stop going to TRU before i decide to pick it up.

Halloween is upon us, anybody dressing up in anything Star Wars related? If i decide to hit up a Halloween party, it will probably be in a Jedi outfit or something, but my brother has his 501st outfit ready. I just need to get him the blaster and he will be all set.
