Target on 180th and Center has one snowspeeder left as of 1:30 pm today. It is on the end cap along with the new battle packs and Kit's Starfighter.

I went to the Target in Bellevue today but i didnt see any of the battle packs or the Snowspeeder. They did stock the pegs though...with the last Endor wave that had the Deaths Star Gunner, Emperor, Chief Chirpa etc.

Yesterday Darth Kozy @ RS said that the Target in Papillion has the snowspeeders on an end cap. I stopped by Target on 132nd and Center today but, they didn't have anything new to report.

Thanks to a tip from msjedi, i was able to pick up the episode 2 commemorative tin set. I liked the clone and Evolutions Anakin figure, Jango isnt too bad either. I passed on the episode 1 one because it was similar to the battle pack i want, with the exception being that one has two battle droids. I already have the red astromech from the Queens Starship so i had the most appealing of the episode 1 figures. I had a harder time deciding on the episode 3 one. I liked the Anakin figure and the clone was ok, but i didnt want another Yoda or Mace. I passed on it in the end. I figure if i see it again and there isnt anything else floating around (like the snowspeeder and the above mentioned battle pack) i will pick it up, if not its ok too. But, once again, thanks msjedi.

I stopped by Krypton Comics today and they are having a 20% everything Sale that runs until Sunday. I didn't pick up anything yet but, I may go back this weekend. KAK, glad I could help. I will keep an eye out for the battle pack and the snowspeeder.

Twenty percent isnt bad, im trying to think what all theyve got over there that i might be interested in. I wont be able to head out that way until tomorrow though.

Collecting is tough right now, as i have to split my spare money towards Christmas presents. Got to get a head start on these things while good things are still available.

Nothing new at the Walmart in Bellevue, just a ton of Heroes and Villains figures. At this rate, they dont look like they will move until Black Friday. Hopefully Hasbro takes note of this and rethinks how they are releasing these greatest hits figures. I ended up buying my first Avatar: the Last Airbender figure instead.

I went to the new Walmart on 72nd today, and seen one lone Naboo soldier on the pegs. I left him there, if only i had gotten there a little sooner i possibly could have found the rest of the Naboo/Endor wave. One day...

Edit: Its a nice looking store, and probably our new meeting place.

Today I saw all three Battle Packs and Snowspeeders on an end cap at both Targets I stopped by. (180th and 132nd & Center). So, Kool-aid killer you might want to give the Target that is close to you a call to see if they have what you want.

10-20-2006, 12:53 PM
I went to the Target in Bellevue, and they didnt have anything new figure wise, but on an endcap i seen the three battlepacks. I grabbed the lone Jedi vs Sith i seen. No sign of the Snowspeeder though. Looking at the battlepack, i like the two battle droids (the main reason it appealed to me) and the Jedi dont look too bad, but whats up with Obis cloak? It looks like hes wearing a silk bath robe. But, im happy that i managed to find it.

Yesterday was a good day for me, got the above mentioned "Sith Lord Attack" battle pack at the Target in Bellevue, i went the Target in the Mall of the Bluffs later that night and picked up the exclusive Snowspeeder and Zev figure, and put two of the black Endor soldiers on layaway at the Council Bluffs Walmart along with some other stuff for old times sake.

Today i went to the Shopko in Bellevue and found Gragra, Holo Maul, and Obi of the Endor/Naboo wave there. I picked up Gragra and left the other two for whoever else needs/wants them. Gragras a nice looking alien, i like her two accessories.

I stopped by TRU on Dodge today. They had the tin sets from Episode 4,5, and 6 if anyone is looking to pick these up @ $29.99 each. Other than that, not much else to report.

10-22-2006, 02:40 PM
I think im going to pick up the episode 6 tin when i should see it, but thats because i really like the scouttrooper and rebel soldier. The other two dont apeal to me.

Target in Bellevue finally put out the exclusive Snowspeeder and Kit Fisto Starfighter today. Figure wise they didnt have anything new.

Hello Ephantmon. Im glad to see another Omaha area person posting here, long ago it was just me babbling to myself. But now weve got four, so im really happy. But enough about me, lets get to you. Is there anything youre still looking for? That way, should msjedi or i happen upon it we can stash it or pick it up for you.

Ephantmon
11-03-2006, 01:24 PM
Cool thanks, as of right now I am all caught up on the things I need. I will be looking for a Vader Sith Starfighter when they finally hit the stores. I have my basic figures ordered through EE.com but I am always on the look out for the newest figures. By the way the Target on Maple has the Mace Battlepack in the storeroom. I passed on it cause I don't nned it but ask an employee with the DPCI # and they should get it for you. Later guys.

The Walmart in Bellevue had a couple of Rep Beens and some Naboo soldiers, and one Vader, but nothing else from that wave. The pegs and an end cap out in the main aisle were stocked full of H&V too.

Ephantmon

the Wal-mart at 168th and Maple has been clogged with the Naboo wave for about a week. I hope they sell to make room for the next wave soon.

11-09-2006, 10:22 AM
Really? I wouldnt mind if they pegwarmed a bit in this area. Right now, im just so tired of seeing Heroes and Villains figures. Hopefully Hasbros next run of them wont be so bad. I usually visit the stores that are closest to my area:

Target, Walmart, and occasionally Shopko in Bellevue.

Target, Walmart, TRU, and every now and then Kmart in Council Bluffs.

Target on 84th, TRU on Dodge St, and Walmart on 72nd.

Aside from those, i dont usually visit any other stores due to not wanting to drive around and end up not finding anything i need.

At the Target in Bellevue, i found a white rebel trooper yesterday around 6pm. They had most of the other guys from that wave. I then went to the Target in the Mall of the Bluffs, but they didnt have any figures i need. No sign of Maces Squadron at either of them, and i dont think either of those two Targets has the box that allows you to check the stockroom.

Kidhuman
11-11-2006, 05:36 PM
The Target by me doesnt have it either. Find an employee and ask them to run a check on it. Bring your little Bro and say its for him or something. Then buy him a candy bar for the good job.

I have been trying to post this all weekend but my home computer sucks and I had to wait till I got to work. Target on Maple as of Friday evening had at least 6 Mace BPs on the shelves. No DPCI# needed. I hope I am not to late for those who want it, if I am oh well. I also scored the new titanium redeco ARC 170 and the redeco Star Destroyer at 180th and 132nd Wal-mart. They also had Wedges X-wing and Jangos battle damaged Slave 1 but I passed on those 2.

I too have found several of the new titanium's out there. I'm still looking for a Holo Maul for a friend, and the white Endor trooper (already have the black one).

Made the rounds today. At the Target in Bellevue there wasnt anything new, aside from the Unleashed Shocktroopers, 501st, Jedi, and Palpatine with Guards. Target on 84th street had Mace Windus squadron, picked one up for myself. The Target in Council Bluffs had the new Unleashed figures also, but no new figures. TRU in Council Bluffs didnt have any new action figures either. The Walmart in Council Bluffs had the Naboo/Endor wave, i seen all but Luke there.

I believe i seen a commercial on MTV2 about Krypton Comics having a Black Friday sale, with significant discounts. 30% off comics and gaming, 40% off trades/graphic books, and 50% off everything else from 6am to 10am. Sounds good, but i dont know if i'll go, it could get really tight in there.

There isn't anything I want or need that bad to fight the crowds at such a small store. I will be going out on Friday mainly to watch grown adults fight over toys. yes I am a sick person.

Kidhuman
11-22-2006, 05:00 PM
Dude, I worked undercover security in Kmart type stores for years in NEw York City. So black Friday was always a blast to watch people fight. I would let em duke it out and arrest the loser.

kool-aid killer
11-23-2006, 11:15 AM
Thats funny. I remember as an employee at Kmart seeing our security guard get his lip split by some dude stealing two $5 DVDs. Felt bad for the guard, but i thought since he was outside the store he should have just drilled the thief with a traffic cone that was near where they were at.

Ephant, im really debating going, im trying to think about what all Star Wars toys they would have over there, and if the savings are even worth it in the first place. On top of that, there isnt much room to move through the comic book cases when its a regular day, imagine how its going to be when the place is full.

Went to Walmart last night/early this morning in Bellevue, they had the original trilogy tins. I want the ROTJ one, but i dont know if i want to pay $27 for the Endor Rebel Soldier and Scouttrooper.

I picked up the Cantina Band commemorative tin today at Walmart on 180th and Center. There are still 15+ there if anyone is still looking for this. I also saw the Shuttle at Target on 180th and Center.

Cool, how do they look? Ive seen the other tins here and there, they seem to be appearing with more frequency, hopefully this one isnt too difficult to run into.

Any news on when the newer basic figures should start showing up?

msjedi
11-30-2006, 11:01 AM
The band set looks good but, I have not opened it yet. Today at Target in Papillion, they had the Mace battlepacks on an end cap if anyone is still looking for it. And, I saw more of the Cantina band tins at Watmart on 132nd and Q. Also, kidhuman reported in the Virginia just found section that he picked up the new assortment of action figures at Target. So they shoud start showing up. Good luck!

LOL. I think those are a given with this hobby.

The Walmart in Bellevue had nothing new, several of the tin sets. I think its safe to say that the price on those is what keeps them on the pegs. If they were down to $20 they would be a lot easier to convince yourself into buying.

Target on 132nd and Center had 2 each of the AAT and Hailfire Droid vehicle. But, no new figures.

Nice. Its too bad a couple of cool things are hitting at this moment. Ive got to put Christmas shopping ahead of my own wants, im probably $200-$250 away from being done. Then i can try and pick some of these up before they disappear.

Im sure youre glad to see that the Wildcats made a bowl. Not bad considering theyve got a new coach. If you recall, Nebraska didnt make one in their new coach's first year. I'll be rooting for all Big 12 teams to win in their respective game these upcoming weeks.

Dash, i went to the SAC museum on Saturday, and it was a pleasure to see the 501st there. Really awesome costumes. A couple of Sandtroopers, Stormtroopers, Scout Troopers, an electronic R2D2, Count Dooku, and Boba Fett. You guys/gals were awesome, always willing to pose for pictures. My younger brother was very thrilled, as were all the other children (and even adults) that were there. I do believe you guys were a bigger attraction than the Santa that was there. It was cool seeing so many little kids with their Star Wars t-shirts and some even came dressed up too. You guys/gals rock.

I found the Cantina band at the Walmart in Bellevue. I bought it, they look cool and you cant have one without the rest. Feels good to have a complete band now. I like their tin too.

I went to the Mall of Bluffs today, Target didnt have anything special. So i went to the Council Bluffs TRU and i found the newest wave of figures. I didnt have much money on me so i was only going to pick two up and leave the rest, but my sister said as a Christmas present she would buy me as many of the figures as i wanted, so i picked up four of the 442nd Siege Battalion, four Fifth Fleet Security, R5-J2, one Clone Trooper Sergeant, one Super Battle Droid, and two packs of the Battle Droids. They had every other figure from that wave still there, but i didnt want those. I wont be able to get them until Christmas though, but its a relief knowing that ive got them, and so many of them, in one swoop. Now i just need to pick up three more of the Super Battle Droids, and two more packs of the Battle Driods, and i will be done with this wave.

Walmart in Bellevue had two AAT tanks, and one Hailfire Droid. I passed on them for now, i hope i dont end up regretting that in a couple of weeks.

Irventon Walmart had about 5 cases of tac out today. They also had a pallet with 3 unopened cases on it of basic figures. On the same pallet, I saw 1 case of vader coin books and 3 or 4 cases of the trechory clones. There was absolutly no room in the toy isle for them.

Soreson Target also had 1 case of the new figs out but by the time I picked some up they were almsot gone. The yalso had the new star fighter... Don't rememebr whos at the moment.

I'm i nthe same boat... I don't d ospecific runs anymore. If I'm at a store, I'll check it out. If I'm driving by, I may stop an take a peak but I haven't went out "just" for a toy run in a while.

I'm also curious what the demand for the coins will be. I'm not going to go crazy on the tac and at $7 I'm definatly not buyiong 2 of each but would like all 60+ coins at some point.

I have been hunting all over town for months for the McQuarrie figures. I got out of hardcore figure collecting a few years ago and have since then only collected Vader items. But the McQuarrie figures got me excited and I have so far been able to get myself the Stormtrooper and the 3PO/R2 set from CIV (still hoping to get a Luke for around cost). But as far as Boba or Chewie, I have found NOTHING. So I was wondering if any of you other Omaha folks had managed to find the McQuarrie figs at retail around here. And where? Where should I be hunting?

I talked to the main scalper for that store... he told me that he is no longer looking for figures locally. He is buying buy the case from Hasbro.com and selling the figures to the store.

I talked to one of the department managers at Target by my theatre (72nd & Sorensen) and asked about the resets and he said that new stuff should be going up in the next week or so, but he made it a point to say that "Star Wars isn't really a priority anymore" as they are primarily going to be focusing on Transformers as far as stocking up to and through the holidays. I had heard this before from one of the stockers at WalMart a couple of weeks ago (as far as not really caring about much more than getting new Transformers stock up fast). So I guess there goes my hope of finding any of the McQuarrie stuff at retail (other than the Chewie I got a couple weeks back). :( Gonna keep going at it though as I have the chance to hit that location on a regular basis.

If there is anything that you guys want me to keep an eye out for, lemme know as I am really only interested in the McQuarrie and Vader stuff.

I just hit the new Krypton Komics out in Westwood and saw that they were charging $25(!) for the McChewie?? Is this the norm for local shops on their scalping prices? I mean, I went looking for a McBoba or perhaps a McVader (the guy said that he had already sold two McVaders... couldn't bring myself to ask for how much out of fear of being hauled off to jail for strangling him) and figured I would maybe have to shell out $15 or at worst, $20 a pop. But to see the pegwarmer of the McFigs sitting there for $25? And an Animated Debut Fett for $30?? Looks like I have been right for a while to only hit Krypton when they are having their 50% off day after Thanksgiving sale. Are there any other shops in town scalping for any cheaper than this that anyone knows of? I am just getting a bad feeling about the sinking sales of Hasbro's SW product and am having '85 POTF fears. It's as if they brought back the coins as a way of saying "good bye" all over again. :(

Groundzero in Bellevue has more action figures than the Groundzero in Omaha, but even they dont have the amount that Krypton does. In my experience they tend to be better priced, but still a bit much.

Keep an eye out for Wave 5. I have found wave 5 at a Nebraska Wal-Mart today. Wal-Mart seems to be the place to find figures from the new waves. At least in my area.

TRU at Oakview has tons of the 181st Interceptor and Y-Wing. The only thing I picked up was that promo item for 4.00. Kinda lame but I like it.

If anyone wants to do a little trading I would like someone to pick me up one of the Bantha battlepacks. I don't care what version. I have a few extras of this years Galactic Hunts. I have a few extras of some of the wave 4 figures and I think I have a McFett that I would be willing to trade. I live in Nebraska but I don't want to waste the fuel to go to Omaha. If interested PM me.

Just out of curiousity, have you been able to pick up a Bantha battlepack yet? I seen some over the weekend at the TRU on Dodge St.

I need the red and orange versions of the pit droids, the clone commander with sandtrooper rifle (big gun with strap), the 30AC topps cards #62 and animated cel #6 If anyone finds these please let me know.

TRU on Dodge St. yesterday had plenty of their exclusive vehicles. I picked up a CZ-4 action figure there.

anyone here interested in Canadian trilogo 30AC figures? I have a few I would like to get rid of. Let me know. 11.00 each. That's what I paid for them.

Mustafar lava Miner, Galactic marine, and Airborne Trooper

I am also looking for the Nightmare before Christmas DVD, if anyone can help.

DeepdiscountDvd.com has the Nightmare Before Christmas bundled with James and the Giant Peach for around $30. I dont think i've seen the DVD here in Omaha for quite some time, but i'll keep an eye out for it.

Quick Heads up. I found Wave 7 today in Nebraska at Wal-Mart.

Ephantmon
11-04-2007, 04:27 PM
can you be more specific? which one? what city?

Ephantmon
11-05-2007, 08:43 PM
got an idea. Do you guys do anything for Toys for tots? I figured if everyone could go out and buy 5 figures each we could make 1 big donation of Star Wars figures. The benefits would be 2 fold. 1) we could give toys to kids that don't have them, and 2) we could get rid of most of the pegwarmers at the stores right now. SO what do you think?

I am currently planning something for Toys For Tots and the Nebraska Food Bank that is going to tie into the year anniversary of my theatre (Great Escape). Since I am already in the process of attempting to book prints of Star Wars and Raiders Of The Lost Ark for our anniversary screenings (admission will be free with a donation of a toy or two canned food products), if you donate your stuff up at the theatre that weekend, you will also get a free movie out of it. (God that sounds like I am shamelessly advertising for my theatre... sorry. But it's for free stuff, so...)

Anyway, just saying. Oh... and I found McQuarrie Starkiller and Boba Fett's at the Target near my theatre up here on 72nd & Crown Point. If I remember correctly they also had Darth Revan's and a few others. Sorry I didn't get on here to post about it. Been very busy taking over operation of the theatre these past few weeks. I did try to get on here to post about finding McQuarrie Vader at Oak View TRU, but the site was acting screwy. Now just to find the Snowtrooper and so on.......

Not a bad idea. I would be willing to donate, my workplace has a couple of the boxes were employees and customers can drop toys off.

Anybody see a good V-wing fighter out and about? Im a little late in picking it up (i just grabbed the Sith Infiltrator last night) and the only one i could find looked like somebody had busted the box open.

Hey all, it's been a while, and I have post at the top of the screen telling me to post.

How is everyone? Anyone seen the new Master Piece Starscream out there? I have only managed to find it over in CB so far.

With Ephantman's help I have managed to find all of this years UGH figures and am currently only looking for the new Blue and Yellow R2 unit.

Piece everyone!

how cool is the masterpiece Starscream? I haven't seen it. Where would you buy it at?

kool-aid killer
11-25-2007, 12:21 PM
Ive only seen the Masterpiece Starscream at the Walmart in Council Bluffs, and that was before Black Friday weekend. But maybe its price scared some people away from buying it. If youre interested, it might be worth a call to see if its still there.

On Friday i found the two big Battle Packs at the Target in the Mall of the Bluffs. I picked up the Endor one first and hope to get the Hoth one within a week or two.

Edit: I just got back from the Target in Bellevue and saw the following exclusives there:

Endor Battle Pack
Hoth Battle Pack
ARC Elite Squad Battle Pack
ARC Fighter Ship
TIE Bomber
and the set with the two walkers from episode three and a clone commander.

If youre a completist i feel bad for your wallet this month.

I got mine about a month again in Sioux City Iowa. Though Kool-aid mentioned, I've only found the StarScream at Walmart in CB. As of Saturday afternoon they had two left on the self. I know these were suppost to be short delivered.. but to only have one store in the entire area have them... that seems a bit to short.

I know they were $50/ea, but that was the same price as the Primes and those still moved fairly well.

The new super battle packs at Target are really cool, but man.. $50...not sure if it's worth it. They are not nearly as cool as the new StarScream (which is possibly one of the greatest Transformers toys I have ever seen).

Yesterday at the Target in the Mall of the Bluffs i found a lone Rebel Vanguard Trooper.

Then i went to the Walmart on 72nd and found two of the newer comic packs: Anakin with the Assassin droid and Fell with Klivian.

Ephantmon, what carded figures w/coins do you have? If youd be willing to hold onto them a bit longer (i dont get paid again until the 28th) i might be able to take a some of your hands.

Edit: Any Hoth Ultimate Battle Packs hanging around? I still need to pick it up.

Ephantmon
12-22-2007, 05:58 PM
This is what I have left after jamesbondo07 takes 6 of them off my hands. I am meeting some people on Monday who may be interested in some. Which ones are you interested in I will try to hold them for you.

Major nose dive. I have found wave 1 and part of wave 2 in my area of Nebraska. So maybe you will start seeing these in Omaha. There is also a online coupon for $5 off a $25 purchase on any toys at Target. It is a coupon you print off and can be used at any Target. You can find it on Rebelscum. Some people have used it multiple times.
