They have an insane number of PEGWARMERS and other JUNK just hanging there. Nobody seems to be buying ANYTHING. Makes me fell like I'm the only collector left up north, and there's no way in hell I can afford to put a dent in that mass sea of pegwarmers. :frus:


If you think your Super-Duper Wal-Mart is insane, you obviously haven't seen the amount of crap the one in Orem has. They have two huge pegboards full of pegwarmers. Nothing even decent, just crummy stuff from collection 2. Heck, even their POTJ stuff is still at $5.88 and we know those will never sell.

I'm even more amazed at the amount of stuff the Orem TRU has. There's that whole board right to the left of the entrance plus another bunch of pegwarmers in the boys' action figure section. I wouldn't doubt it if they had another pallet of the same collection in the stock room.

It's insanity I tells ya'. :crazed:

Well I guess the good thing is this store has no POTJ to speak of. They must have trashed all the Landos and his pegwarmin' buddies when they moved.

When I think of that 12" Luke, I think of the Sandtrooper w/Dewback but with a slightly better price tag.

I just heard from a friend who works for a TRU, not in Utah though, and he tells me that TRU's will be sending back their no sells to make room for the newer stuff in time for Christmas. Should happen the second half of OCT.

Another buddy found the Unleashed wave 3, DooKu and Mace, at a KB toys in the SLC area. He didn't tell me which one, just that it was KB toys. Damn, and I still haven't found the Vader Unleashed.


Keep you eyes open.....new stuff is showing up for a change! Hope I find some soon.......:crazed:


Other than that, not much else to post. :frus:

i found the TT lotr figs at the Target on Redwood- near SLCC. I got the Gondorian Ranger, Faramir, and the easterling- all the single figs available. Legolas is supposed to be with that wave but he looks sooooooooo freaking awesome that no one can pass him up! They also have 3 of the 2 packs- with Merry and Grishnak (?) and Pippin with Ugluck (?) and then an Elven Archer with Bezerker Uhruk-hai (sp?) very cool stuff. They are much more gimick-less than the FOTR series- and those that do have buttons as such are mostly covered by cloaks and stuff.

I haven't been around the forums lately so I don't know if anyone's posted this yet. The Orem Target has the Unleashed line on clearance. I can't remember the exact price but they were somethink like $6.99 or $7.99. All they had were the DM and JF/BF statues.

Sorry, DahrJin. No Unleashed Vader yet. :(

Dahr Jin,

I found (this morning 17 Oct) one Unleashed Vader at the TRU by Valley Fair mall and I know that you have been looking forever for this guy so I picked him up for you. He is my car as I type. If you strike out at TRU later on today and still want him let me know and we can work out the details for getting him to you. I don't collect the unleashed but I must admit that this one is pretty cool.

No Ephant Mon and no Clone Trooper Pilot. I was just at the Orem TRU and those two weren't anywhere to be seen. They also have many of the latest Ani, Maul, KAM, and Teemto waves, although they're almost out of Teemtos (or do you spell it Teemtoes? ;) )

Thanks Dahr Jin.

Hey I was in your area Saturday night. Went to the Ogden Dinosaur Park - aka the Elizabeth Dee Shaw Stewart Dinosaur Museum and George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park - for their Halloween thing. I'm doing a project there and have to say it was really worth the trip. They went all out and my 2 1/2 year old had a blast. I really recommend it.

AND to return us to our scheduled thread:

Woods Cross KMart and the Fred Meyer in Ogden by the Stop and Shop and the two Asian restaurants were both busts on Saturday night - as was Sugar House TRU, but the TRU did have stuff this morning (but no unleashed Jediwolf)

Anyone hear from Metaljedi? I know he moved to Vegas but I've got these two FF figures he had me buy in August and he's not responding to my messages. Anyone know what is up?

Deanpaul

DahrJin
10-21-2002, 02:14 PM
Yeah, I have been to the dinosaur park, not in a long time though. I used to fish the river that runs through it all the time too. Hey, a river runs through it, a fishing pun on a SW board.

.......Stay on Target.......

Haven't heard from metaljedi in a while myself.

Talked(well typed) with him a couple times after he moved, but nothing lately.

Try Galactichunter.com, the new BHC fourms. I've heard his name a few times there.

Look in the "LOOK SIR TOYS" fourm under "Vegas sightings", or something like that...

Hope that helps you....

DJ

***EDIT TO ADD***

Just checked GH, and his posts in the look sir toys section have vanished. Don't know what's up there now......

I did find him at RS fourms.

He last posted in the "Look What I Found" fourm in under the topic," help need new toys in Las Vegas". His last post was four days ago. Maybe you can reach him through there deanpaul.

Hey everybody who's looking for the ET DVD,

Just got mine at the Orem WM this morning. They didn't have the price up yet, but they're going for $14.87, slightly less than the KMart advertised price. There's no mention of the 1982 version of the film being on the second disc on the packaging so I'm waiting to open mine until I get a confirmation that it's indeed included.

10-23-2002, 02:37 PM
On my lunch break today I decided to check out some of the stores that I hardly ever go to anymore, Shopko and Fred Meyers. I went to the ones on 90 South and around 2100 West. The Fred Meyer store had sales on the Republic Gunship and Arena Set. Normally priced at 39.99 they were reduced to 29.99. Anakin and Zam's speeders were priced at 8.99. They also had a ton of Dooku, Yoda, and HD Anakin (4.99) for those still looking for them. They were stocked fairly well for all the items mentioned.

Shopko also had a sale but they only had the usual left-overs. And their sale prices were the normal prices everywhere else. Shopko does have a good sale price for figs at 4.84. You could price match at other retailers.


Onto the usual suspects. K Mart has the Lott Dodd wave everywhere but the Clone Pilots are still hard to find. I did manage to score the Clone Trooper w/speeder bike. The Geo Warrior w/hive was also found in abundance but I think I will wait for a sale on that one.


Kay Bees had an interesting find. I saw a guy with the last Mace and Dooku Unleashed. I managed to get a good look at them and they looked as good as the Vader unleashed. Unfortunately, Kay Bees' price for the Unleashed are about three dollars more than TRU.

DahrJin

Which Kmart were you at, and did they have any Deluxe Clones left?

Deanpaul

10-23-2002, 03:29 PM
Deanpaul,

I went to two different K Marts. There is one in Sandy off of the VF factory outlet exit. It's east of the freeway about a mile and a half or so. They had the Geo warrior and flipping Anakin left . The other K Mart is off of 90th South and 2100 West. That is where I found the Clone Trooper w/Speeder bike. It was the last one.

I was at the K Mart in AF yesterday and they had the remains of the Clone Trooper w/Speeder bike wave. Only the flipping Anakin was left. I'll keep an eye out for them and post when I see them again.

Someone mentioned this in another thread, but does anyone know why the Clone Trooper w/Speeder bike has red eyes? It's a little freaky.

Well, road, if your looking for Tat Attack Anakin, Sith Training Maul, Lot Dodd, Tusken W/Masiff, Pilot Padme and Mundi then Layton TRU"S the place. Not much else. There were a few Wattos but the bubbles were all smashed in...so I left 'em alone.

Only Unleashed there was Jango!

Layton Wallyworld's over run with the usual warmers....palpy, Phur, Han and the likes, not much more.

Only had Jango and Maul Unleashed. Price was dropped from $14.99 to $12.99.

No Clone Pilots or Jango Pilots anywhere. :(

I didn't go in Target, haven't found anything at a Target for months, so I figured why bother.

I plan on hitting the Riverdale/Ogden stores this evening.....

....Have to go christmas shopping for the kid you know, so I'll kill two birds with one stone....:D

Mandalorian Candidat

I found my Jango pilot at the Orem TRU, but believe me it isn't that great. It should end up a pegwarmer.

I also found the same thing with the Wattos. I found 7 w/smashed bubbles along the top and only 1 that was pretty decent.

I've seen the Mace, Ani, and Dooku Unleashed at KB. They just don't interest me, however.

DahrJin
10-25-2002, 04:44 PM

I also got a silver R2 at the Orem TRU. They supposedly got in 128 of them. Quite a few! Do not use the KMart price match ($3 a fig there), because the girl told me I had to buy $20 worth of figures at the TRU price. Who knows???? Good luck if you can get them to honor it.

Anyone think TRU might still have some to give away?

Mandalorian Candidat
11-04-2002, 10:25 AM
They should still have some. I talked with an employee there (Orem store) on Friday on the availability of the R2s. He said they got in 4 cases of 32 (128) which should last for at least a week.

You guys who got them early must have lucked out because they weren't supposed to start handing them out until the 3rd.

I was told Layton TRU still had some yesterday, so I sent my wife to check. She returned empty handed. She says she couldn't find a silver R2 anywhere, but she never asks anyone anything, so I think I may go check for myself.

Looks like I might have missed out on this one......:(

I was lucky enough to get two of the silver R2s. I turned in an older receipt (<30 days) and they gave me one and then I went back Friday and got another one. The cool thing was that I used the KMart ad for $3 figures and got 7 for $21 bucks.

Went to Target last night in Orem. They restocked the accessory packs so I picked up the Arena and Endor sets finally. There were several Hoth and a couple more Endors but no DS and no more Arena; mine was the last.

BTW, they don't price match there anymore.

No good figures to pick from for the $2.99 price tag though. Unless you're looking to get an extra Mace or five. :D

Ha, ha. Got the same thing going on as well in Orem. Why couldn't there be at least some army builders instead of Primal Scream Mace.

I was going to post this earlier but didn't have the chance until now. I found the clone trooper pilot at TRU on Friday. There were two left so I grabbed them both. They don't look as good as the original CT and I don't think they have as much articulation but they are still neat to have.

I wonder if they got in any Ephant Mons. There were a few more TR w/Massifs, Wattos, KAMs, and other figures that are included in the EM case.

Still nada at Target or WM. I'm hoping something really great will come down the pike there the day after Thanksgiving.

While at the Riverdale Super Wallyworld lastnight, Turkey Day shopping with the wife, I strolled through the toy department, can't help it. It's a habbit. :D

When I reached the SW section, I was surprized to see that there were almost NILL basic figures on the pegs. There were like 15 Palpy figs and not much more.

To my disapointment, 1/2 of the SW section has been given up to Harry Potter and a few misc. LOTR figures.

Anyone know what WM is up to, with letting almost all the figs be sold without restocking? Are they maybe trying to clear the warmers out to make way for new stuff in time for Christmas?

I sure hope so.

BTW- No sign of the new 10" vinyl figs either.

I think this same thing happened last year with WM. They didn't have jack squat around Christmas except for tons of Ketwols and BSGs. I no longer have any hope for new stuff showing up around Christmas since it seems that Hasbro may be finally acknowledging that collectors are the main purchasers and consumers of SW figures.

Orem TRU had Ephant Mon this morning. According to employees, they are out at the moment, but plan to get more in. Take that for what it is worth.

I was at the Orem TRU on Friday when they opened and didn't see any Ephant Mons or Clone Pilots. They might have been all gone by the time I got to the display over in the boys' section because I had to get something else before they were all gone.

Man that was some pretty trippy shopping. I got there about 4:45 AM and waited forever in the cold. Then a bunch of skanky women tried to jump the line once the doors were opened and everybody went ballistic. I was lucky to be close to the door when they opened. I went back later that day to price match some older receipts and the line went all the way around the store. It took me 10 minutes to get the stuff, pay, and get the heck out.

I'm surprised they had Ephant Mon on Wed. I thought they got their shipments Thurs. and put them out on Fri. only. Oh well, they'll be plentiful soon enough. They look like big pegwarmers.

DahrJin
12-02-2002, 02:29 PM
Someone told me during the christmas season TRU get's trucks on a daily basis and they stock as needed. Could explain why the difference in finding an E-Mon on a Wed and not Fri.

Still under the wifes NO SW TOY HUNTING rule until the end of the month, so not much has been seen by me the past few weeks. :(

I was out getting christmas goodies last night at the local super wallyworld and as usual I stryed into the toy dept. To my surprize, I spotted a lone E-Mon so I had to have him, and the wife agreed for a change.

There were also Pilot Padmes, Jangos but no Clone Pilots...:(

I got a look at all of the 10" vinyls, and to tell the truth, I'm not too impressed. Not much there for the price. I feel better paying $15 for unleashed compared to the $13 for these.

Then again, I will have to have the Vader eventually....:crazed:

Thanks for the reminder about Suncoast, DP. I went there about a month ago and found a Slave 1 for around $20 they had on clearance. I went back yesterday after reading your post and they still had it, but now for $13.50. My son will really enjoy it on XMas morning. :)

I also saw the TTT figures at TRU and KB. What a bunch of funny looking crap! Aragorn looks like he's drunk and you can't understand what electronic Sauron is saying.

Riverdale Super Wal Mart has almost nothing in the way of SW at all. A few 12 inchers and a figure here and there, but most of the SW section is now under the control of Power Rangers. :confused:

Target has the usual nada as well as shopko, TRU and KB toys.

I did find a DooKu Unleashed at KB, but the package looked like it had been through the clone wars itself, and the figure was beat up. Like it was loose at one time and knocked around before being put back and taped in the package.

Hope things start to look up soon......:o

I have received several emails for the Ephant Mon, so I will post his location and the first person there gets him. Walk up two aisles to the Lego/model kit area. Look behind the Datson 240z or 280z model. They are on two different shelves, he is behind the uppermost one. Good luck!

Harrisville WM had the newer Padme DFC, RH Tusken, Imp Officer and Reb Trooper. Sunday night.

Every place and anyplace else had diddly squat. :mad:

I tried sending you a PM, poodooku about the ephant mon but it looks like it didn't go through. I was really interested in getting it; just wanted you to know I wasn't shining you on or anything.

Has anybody picked it up yet?

Went by the Orem WM this AM and found a bunch of figures...























...all old C2 stuff from last year. Are they repacking older stuff with new figures?

DahrJin
04-11-2003, 12:10 PM
No repacks that I'm aware of yet. Just seems like all stores have an abundance of older stuff that's keeping 'em from getting the new stuff....

By the way, any one going to the Ogden Toy Show this weekend?

I'll be there. Might be the only place to score some newer stuff, since we live in SW droughts-ville here in UT.

What's up with this toy show, DJ? Is it like a swap meet or are there exhibitors like Hasbro?

It's more or less dealers and local toy people selling all sorts of goodies. Everything, including SW.

Not like a flea market, but not quite like a Hasbro thing. :crazed:

It runs both Saturday and Sunday from like 8-9 AM until the evening at the Weber County Fair Grounds in Harrisville/North Ogden.

Members of the local 501st Stormtrooper Garrison will also be there for our viewing and picture taking pleasure.

Bountiful hasent had junk lately....newest thing I found is that re-released Yoda, at K-mart.

DahrJin
04-15-2003, 11:25 AM
The toy show was great. Got some good deals, it's good to know people, and the 501st guys were excellent.

Down side to the deal was all the so called "collectors" selling newer Saga figures for $25-$30 each. Sad part about it was people were actually buying them.

I only picked up a few things myself. An Unleashed Leia, a final jedi duel cinema scene and a Hallmark Vader tree ornament. My daughter bought more than I did.

Not much else there I wanted. No Unleashed really, and there was no way I was going to pay $30 for a recently released figure.

If you ever get the chance to go, I suggest you do. It was great to see all the SW stuff and to find some older stuff here and there.

I've visited Target to check out their 2/$5 figure sale....Needless to say if you only need Djas Puhr or Orn Free Taa you're in luck. Not much else.

DahrJin
04-15-2003, 12:10 PM
Same here up north.

My 2 local Targets might have a total of 8 Saga figures between them, and they're figures everyone has, or doesn't want.

I stopped by KB at Provo Town Center this afternoon. They have a few of the Playskool XWing and Naboo Fighter sets if anyone is still looking for them. They took 20% off at the register, though I didn't see any signs advertising a sale. I guess it's a 'secret' promotion.

For you Lord of the Rings fans, they also had several Gollum figures.

Shopko has several of the 9" Vader w/ removable mask and Bikini-Leia, but at $18.49 each, I think they will have them for a very long time.

DahrJin
04-18-2003, 10:47 AM
Still, sad to report, nothing new up north.

Riverdale WM had not a single basic figure hanging last night.

And me, all stoked to get a Jango Pilot and Clone Pilot with the ad match from Targets sale.

ThomasLane
04-23-2003, 04:55 PM
I went to the Provo Town Center again yesterday and they had all the Playskool sets, minus the Millenium Falcon, and they were taking 20% off at the register. They also have a sign for 50% off "select" Star Wars toys (not sure what toys, but I assume Hasbro stuff).

Off-topic: Anyone around here collect LOTR figures? I've got a spare Galadriel for trade. I'm looking for an Elrond if anyone is interested in a trade.

I have yet to find any new figures in Utah County. I was in Manti on Saturday and stopped off at the WalMart in Ephraim. If you need Plo Koon or any of the three Jango Fetts you're in luck. Not much else though.

The Orem Target got in some more Lego minisets so if you need any of the four they have them all.

Was this drought as bad as it was the last non-movie year? It seems to be really bad this year. I've only found four or five of the 2003 figures and still haven't run across Ephant Mon.

BTW, if anyone needs a Bespin Duel Luke or DV they have a few at the Orem Target.

DahrJin
04-29-2003, 02:54 PM
Was this drought as bad as it was the last non-movie year?

Yes and no.

At least back then we had TRU clearencing everything for $2.00 a fig.

EDIT 4/30/03:

Went to both Riverdale Target and Wallyworld Lastnight and this is what they were offering:

Wal*Mart:

One single basic figure hangin', a Destroyer Droid.
Catina sets wave one.

Target:

Not a single basic figure anywhere in the store.
Accessory sets out the wazzoo.

Was all stoked to hit all the regular shops due to recent news of people finding newer stuff. But after the serious lack of anything at the first two stops, I decided to go home and watch "24".

Did anyone else hit the jackpot yesterday? My wife went by the Orem WM and found the following:

Boba Fett-Carkoon
R2-D2-Factory
Han-Hoth
Chewie-Mynock
Mace-Arena (or whatever the new one is)
Ani-Secret Ceremony
OB1-Acklay Battle
and one more that I can't remember

There were still a couple Bobas, R2s, Hans, Chewies, and one Mace left yesterday night. Just curious if they hit Utah County only or anyone up north got to share in the wealth.

:D :D :D :D :D :D :crazed:

DahrJin
05-06-2003, 02:27 PM
No, no wealth sharing here up north.

Riverdale WM did put figs on their empty pegs, but they were older Saga figs. Taun We, Royal Gaurd and Lott Dodd is all. :(

Good to hear of your score though. Maybe my luck will change soon....

It's a funny thing. I should be totally happy about getting all the new stuff, but part of me wishes I could have found the new Tyrannus and Tusken Raider.

If anyone wants, I can stop by and see if they have anything left and get whatever for y'all. LMK

DahrJin
05-07-2003, 08:45 AM
Well I finally saw a new Saga figure. Went to KB lastnight, to get a gift card to purchase the Riddel Mini Vader Helmet online...:D , and there was a single Saga Imp. Officer. The one with brown hair.

Not real new, but I've never seen it before.

Mandalorian Candidat
05-07-2003, 10:11 AM
All the new stuff at the Orem WM was gone this morning, but I did find a new Mace and OB1 at the Springville store. I picked them both up so if anyone wants one or both please let me know ASAP.

BTW, they also had a lone Saga TIE Bomber.

Only place I've ever found figure stands as well as carded figure cases was online.

Try here if you want to go through an online dealer. I've heard good things about them from other collectors.

If anyone does indeed know of a local place to pick up star case type cases and loose figure stands, please do tell.

Mandalorian Candidat
05-09-2003, 12:56 PM
Thanks for the reply, DJ. I checked out the site (the link is bad, BTW) and they want $6 just to ship a handful. I'd be willing to pay for the stands if they didn't rip you off on "handling" charges.

The link as it's written in the post is correct, but when click on it I go to http://display needs/ and that gives some IE error message.

I've looked at a few stores, but they were gaming stores. Thus, they didn't have any stands for figures other than those tiny warcraft figures. I don't know of any major league comics/collectors stores in Utah county so I'm kind of at a standstill.

If I manage to find anything I'll post it in the thread.

DahrJin
05-14-2003, 08:54 AM
Thanks MC!

I'm in need of some star case type cases and don't need 100 or more so I would get no benifit from ordering online. I tried a few comic and card shops here up north, but they don't carry any "on hand" but will order them for you if you want. Might be the way to go if the price is right and you don't have to order 100 or more.

Found the deluxe walking spider at the Target in Sandy. Over at Wal Mart in Sandy they had one flying r2 left. It actually looked a lot better in person then in the pics. I left it hanging. K Mart in AF had the new Dooku and Arena Obi Wan. I left them both hanging on the pegs. New stuff is finally showing up but not the new stuff that I am looking for.

DahrJin

My wife found the Hoth Han and Boba Fett at Riverdale Target this weekend while I was sick.

She said there were no Anakin SC but a few Chewie Mynock Hunt left as well as one more Boba and Han.

Good to see Target, of all places, getting new stuff for a change.

Now if only WM and TRU would get some in.

Mandalorian Candidat
05-23-2003, 10:01 AM
Got a question for my Utah bros...

Anyone else's Target totally devoid of figures? The one in Orem is down to 0 figures, 0 deluxe figures, and about 1000 Hoth accessory sets. Very, very odd...

On the plus side they had a ton of Sith Rising booster packs for $0.37 each. I managed to clean up on that one.


DJ, haven't found any local stand or case suppliers but there is one store in Provo I have yet to check on. I'll let you know.

DahrJin

My local Target had the newer waves this past weekend, but when I was there lastnight, all was gone.

From one of your earlier posts I assume you're talking about the Riverdale Target. Sounds like your wife found pretty much the same stuff my wife did. She didn't see the Dooku or the Tusken Raider, but pretty much everything else (at WM though, not Target).

Looks like the Orem Target got restocked with regular figures sometime this holiday weekend. I'd been scoping out the store daily since they pulled all the old stock but didn't stop by Sat. or Mon. at all. I went by yesterday and found a lone 2003 Padme on the pegs. Hopefully they'll restock soon.

DahrJin
05-28-2003, 12:49 PM
Hopefully they'll restock soon.


That's a little pipe dream I've mine as well. :D


Since getting the Fett and Han, Target has run dry with no basic figures on the pegs, yet again.

Hope I have better luck finding the upcomming Vader, Luke and Emperor TRD figures, than I have had so far this year. :mad:

Has anyone else found the Imperial 4-pack at their TRU lately? They had 5 at the Orem store last Friday. No thanks. I'd get it maaaaaybe for $10 if the stormie is the same as the CT version. The AT-ST driver looks like Mr. Rogers...not exactly the look you want in a bad guy SW figure.

DahrJin
06-03-2003, 08:36 AM
Haven't been to TRU in a few weeks, and the 4 pack of repaints/rehashes just isn't enough to get me to go.

And like MC said, for what it costs, I'll wait and see how many get put on clearence.

Stopped by the Orem WM this AM and found that they must have put out at least one case of C1 figures. All they had left of the new ones were OB1 and R2 with the newer Yoda and Destroyer Droid with a Hangar Duel Ani thrown in for good measure.

DJ, haven't forgotten about those figure stands. I checked out two hobby shops in the area and found zip. I did find a new games/collectibles shop in Orem so I'll try to hit them today.

I was hunting around Orem and found this new card shop off State St. near the Scera theater. They had a bunch of vintage SW, ESB, and ROTJ trading cards. I still have a few left from the 70s so I thought I would fill in the many large gaps in my "collection." I ended up getting them all (around 160) for $20. Sadly, that's all the SW stuff they had.

DahrJin
06-05-2003, 08:43 AM

I haven't thought about my old Topps SW cards in a long, long time. Maybe I'll have to dig 'em out and see what ever is left.

Still haven't found any new stuff since the great Wal-Mart restock a couple of months ago, but I did get my hands on a very interesting item.

Last night I was at the Orem KMart and came across a Lego Jango Fett's Slave 1. It was tagged at $37, but when I scanned it the price was at $11! Pretty slick. I think that's my best Lego buy so far.

Mandalorian Candidat
06-09-2003, 12:50 PM
The Orem Target finally stocked some figures. The only problem is that they're the Yoda/DD/Clone Pilot wave. No 2003 at all! I am beside myself with bewilderment!

DJ, I'm just about out of potential local stores for the figure stands. I checked out the last one I thought might have them on Friday and zippo. I'm about ready to order on-line, although there is one store in Midvale called Hastur Hobbies that may have them...

Ugh! I know I should be grateful, but the one day I don't check the empty pegs at Target I get screwed! The Orem Target today had at least one case of 2003 C2 figures on the pegs. There were 3 Barrisses, 3 Aaylas, and one lone Yoda/Chian which was the only figure of the three I didn't have.

Still looking for the Padawan 2-pack, Dooku, and Tusken Raider and the elusive Ephant Mon.

The Orem Target put out another case...of older figures. If you need the JC Yoda, DD, or Clone Pilot they have a few.

I've noticed something odd lately. Both Target and KMart have put some 2003 Lego sets on clearance already! Both KMarts in the Provo/Orem area have the Geonosian fighter for $13.99, thought they may not have clearance stickers on them. The Orem Target was selling the Skyhoppers for $11.01.

Pretty odd.

Didn't think lightning would strike twice on consecutive days, but it did at Target. They had the repackaged C-3PO and Jango as well as another Luke, Vader, Hoth Han, and Chewie.

I passed on the 3po since it's the same as the one from POTF2, but I may get it eventually if it ever goes on clearance.

BTW, KBs have individual figures for $2.

I can't believe it...three times in a row. Lucky for me I slept in today so I could get to Target by opening time.

They had two cases of the Secret Ceremony Amidala/Wat Tambor/etc. figures. All in good shape (the cards weren't jacked up). I was able to get Amidala, Wat, Coleman, Ashla/Jempa, Han, Leia, Maul (these three I might return), and the red battle droid. The case also has Barriss and Aayla but I passed since I have them already.

All I need now is Ephant Mon and the newer Tusken Raider.

Hit them Targets, DJ!

MC- You're amazing! Three times!? Glad to see you're finding what you need.

I've started lurking around here a little aaain, because SLC finds have been sucking the big one.

If you decide to return anything, will you let me know first? Depending on which three you're considering returning, I might be interested in taking them off your hands.

I'm currently looking for:

Hoth Han
Ceremony Anakin
Coleman
Wat
Younglings
Ceremony Amidala
Lama Su and Youth

Anakin speeder bike
Dooku speeder bike

Clone Wars Jedi 3 pack

Let me know what you're looking for as well. Maybe I'll eventually find something up here and we can help each other out again - desperate measures for desperate times, right?

Later,
