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,

Deanpaul

Hey DP, good to know you're still alive! ;)

I've heard that the 3-pack has been showing up randomly at TRUs, but I don't know about their availablility on the deluxe bike figures.

If you're looking for the younglings and Lama Su, I believe one of each is in the Wat/Amidala (SC) case.

I'll keep an eye out for you. In fact, if you want me to grab anything for you I'll stop by Target tonight to see if any are left. Just PM me or post back in this thread.

Get your house done yet?

MC,

I would happily take anything you have/can get from my list off your hands. Thanks for offering to keep an eye out for me. What's on your need list?

I've seen the CW 3 packs at WV TRU, I saw the Droid set and Droid Launcher earlier this week. If you need them I could go back there - LMK. I got one clone set for myself, and only need the Jedi which may not be out yet...

The house is almost there - still need a banister and trim, built in shelves, a little stucco and a kitchen island - but it's certainly livable. I had talked about having a get together when it was "all done", which might be some time off still. Maybe I should compromise my standards and host something in pre-finished form?

If we do that, is there still anyone around SSG besides you, DahrJin and jediwolf? Four would make a party, and we could open it to Rebel Scum as well... What do you think?

OK, deanpaul. I went back to Target after school this evening and it looks like they put out another case. So I got you the following:

Secret Ceremony Amidala
Wat Tambor
Coleman Trebor
Ashla & Jempa
Yoda & Chian
Lama Su & Clone Boy

If you want all 6, great. If not that's fine. I can take back what you don't want. Please LMK if you're still interested and if so when you want to get them. Just so you know, I tried picking out the ones with the best cards and bubbles but they're not all perfect. I don't remember if you're a carded collector.

BTW, right now I'm looking for three things: Ephant Mon, Tusken Raider (the new 2003 one), and the Deluxe Clone speeder bike. I'd be happy to trade if you have any extras.

Wow!

MC - What is up with that Target!?! Seriously, all of the figures allotted to our state seem to be showing up at that one Target!

I read on RS that Centerville Target had gotten some stuff in, but by 3:30 this afternoon what I wanted had been cleared out. I did see the remnants of the wave, which was promising. I saw the red Battle Droid, so I knew they really had hit.

Thank you thank you thank you for helping me out. I'll send you a pm to make arrangements.

I really appreciate your help!

It's always funny to consider the other forum members all crawling around the same haunts looking for the same figures, especially when we all might overlap and pass one another without realizing!

I drove to Orem to meet up with Mandalorian Candidat last night. He helped me out last year with Bo Shek and Teebo, and maybe even R4-M9, and this year he scored 5 figures off of my want list. He's an awesome guy, and I cannot say how grateful I am that he helped me out. Beyond its obvious disemination of information function, this forum really has become a community where I've made friends. Thanks again, Mandalorian Candidat. I've got your list, and my eyes are open.

Sugar House TRU has old blue figures after months of no figures at all - Jango Pilot, Clone Pilots, Red Clone Trooper, Jedi Council Yoda - same junk any you could get at any Target for the last 4 months - if you still needed it.

Downtown SLC Fred Meyer had a Spider Droid, Blue Saga figures there are now a reasonable $4.99.

I'm pretty upbeat that things are beginning to arrive in the area. I just hope we have not missed out on waves 11 and 12, and that they will be showing up with the 13's that are being found.

I was surprised to see some Clone Wars stuff at the Orem TRU yesterday. They only had the Droideka Launcher set (3 of them) but it was nice to see the CW stuff finally making its appearance.

I thought they only got one truck in per week and that came Thursday, which would then be put out for Friday morning.

TRU must have gotten in new CW stuff today and sold it out. I found a lone AAT, but for $22 I left it there. Two Droideka launchers were left.

Swatter,

You've offered really great information over the last year here on the boards. I really, sincerely appreciate it.

However, I am always unsuccessful at scoring off of your posts. Whether I run out the second you post, or later that day I consistently strike out. It's not just you, it happens fairly frequently.

So, considering my terrible luck at finding anything - I think it would be good for me to be the thread clean up guy. You know, the one who posts the follow up saying all of the new figures were off the shelf by 5:30 Friday with only a lone Lott Dodd remaining...

Kind of a "Just cleaned out by someone else" post. ;)

I'm still looking for the Hoth Han and Secret Ceremony Anakin, if anyone spots a set for opening.

Jediwolf, are your speeders still available?

WX K-mart had one of each of the following 1 half hour ago. New Boba Fett, Hoth Han, C3P0, Snow Trooper, and I cant remember the other one for the life of me.... If your looking for the Boba Fett its hidden behind some of the games at the front of the isle. Good Luck if you still need these!

Captain Moroni, thanks for the report.

In keeping with my oath to report 'Just Cleaned Out" store no-finds, I'd like to state that the Woods Cross Kmart had no new figures left on the pegs when I arrived at 12:30 pm today.

However, tucked neatly behind the game "Skipbo" opposite the SW figs was a minty new Boba Fett. Right where MC posted it would be. I left it there and walked away smiling at my decision to Skipbobafett.

Layton and Centerville targets still empty. TRU in Layton had 2 CW Jedi Fighters, and 2 CW Droid Launchers. Yawn.

The AF Target opened today, and they had newer figures, but I passed on them. Almost all had damaged cards. The ones that I remember are: Darth Maul, Destroyer Droid, Yoda & Chian, Ashla & Jempa, Library droids (I wanted but card was messed up), Ceremony Amidala, Coleman, and Tambor. Nothing too great, but in case you need them....

Yeah, I stopped by as well. I was on my way to a family BBQ in Sandy when we drove by and saw the parking lot full of cars. Of course instead of stopping off and checking it out around 5:30 we waited until the drive back. Thus I probably missed getting the 2003 Tusken Raider, the only 2003 figure I don't have.

The store was slated to "open" Sunday the 27th, but since it's Happy Valley they moved it to Saturday (yeah!). However tonight they had a "sneak preview" unannounced opening from 5-9 PM. Everything was 10% off!

Anyways, they had out one Yoda/Droideka/Jango Fett Pilot/Clone Pilot case, one Wat/Broccoli Padme/Han/Maul/Leia case, and one Aayla/Barriss/2-pack Droid case. I got doubles of some of the Aayla case since they were extremely hard to find the first time around. I was hoping for some Lt. Daytonni wave action, but I guess it's not out just yet.

They also had the AAT, CW JS, and the CW gunship. I passed because of the cost but there were 2 gunships and about 4 or so of the other two. I don't recall seeing any CW deluxe sets/3-packs.

As for Legos, I found all 4 of the 2nd Wave mini ships. I usually don't pay full price for Legos more than a few $ but I couldn't pass these up. They're pretty sweet. There were scads but I don't recall seeing any wave 1 ones (I'm just waited for them to clearance so I can get a podracer set). They also had the new AT-AT (it's so friggin' huge!) and Hailfire droid set. There may have been another big set but I don't remember. They were about ready to close the store so we had to leave right then.

I noticed that all the clearanced Legos were absent. No Jabba's Palace, Jedi Starfighter, Jabba's Droid Message (whatever it's called), or T14.

Anyways, if anyone goes tomorrow morning and sees a tusken raider ambush PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE stash it or get it for me!

Good to see more folks 'round these parts. :D

Was busy as all get out and then went on Vacation for a week so I haven't been to any boards at all really.

It's good to hear that you all are finding the stuff you are after.

Me, I'm happy.

One collector buddy has a Vader and Luke TRD waiting for me and another collector buddy has a Silver Fett waiting for me as well.

Things are looking up I guess, just wish I could find some of the new Unleashed at retail as well as seeing anything new, figure wise, on the pegs.

deanpaul, a get together would be great. You should do it man. I think extending the invite to rebelscum would work out well. Some good guys there after all.

Would also give us all a chance to put faces to the names, so we can recognize each other while passing in the stores. :p

Finally found some new stuff at retail. Both the Super Target and Wal Mart in Sandy had Stuff. The Target had one last Han Hoth which I bought. The Wal Mart had several Han Hoths, several throne room Lukes, Several Flying R2s, and the repacked JF,HS,PL, and DM. Nothing else from the wave was present. The Super Target at Fort Union also had the same stuff as the Wal Mart. At least some of the new stuff is starting get out a little more. The State Street TRU had jack. TRU is a barren wasteland. The only new thing that I have seen there in weeks is the rolling droideka set - no thanks.

Oh let's see, there's Wal Mart, Target, TRU, ShopKo and KBtoys in Riverdale. Then there's Wal Mart in Harrisville up in north Ogden.

In Layton there's TRU, ShopKo, Big K, Wal Mart and Target.

Riverdale WM had nothing new in the way of Saga or CW figures.

Only thing that could be considered new, was the Luke and Vader TRD toy sabers.

There were about 4 of each one lastnight.

Well friends, I hit the motherload today. I stopped by the Centerville Target today before work after hitting the D.I. (some good stuff there too), and found the Padme Droid Factory wave, plus screen scenes series 2 (both of them) and best of all, Clone Wars Figures! :D well, just Yoda and Anikan, but still! :D

Yeah, I figured the other local Targets would be getting new stuff. I found all three of the new CW figures (Ani, Yoda, and ARC Trooper). They must have just put them out before I got there because 21 figures were on the pegs (someone must have taken one of each). They also had four each of the Scenes from series 2 plus more AATs and JSs.

Well, I finally found some WM CW 2-packs. Stopped by the Orem TRU this AM and picked up the Yoda and Ani two packs (no ARC ones left). The dope who stocks in the toy dept. didn't put them buy the SW figures or even in the general area where the action figures or cars are. The display case was over by the dolls along the side aisle. I just happened across it by accident. It was probably sitting there for a week before I noticed it.

There was still one Yoda and one Ani set left.

Not this crap again.

Would you kindly keep your snide comments and questions to yourself. You are just trying to stir up trouble, Like you tried over at RS forums.

You know perfectly well that Deanpaul and Able are both active members of both this site and others, and that most of us have done some sort of SW buisness with them in the past. If I remember correctly, Deanpaul has never sold anything at the toy show.

Sounds to me like you are just trolling for an argument.

Seeing how you have to hide behind a mock username and couldn't ask these questions under your own, I must ask you kindly to wait outside.

Because, "We don't serve your kind here."

Well if the so called scalper likes to talk sh*t and run then it shows who is the wuss. All I have to say about it is Scalper don't accuse anything untill you talk to someone. So let me guess all the people at the toy show are scalpers and won't give people figs at cost. HMM let me see let the sellers pay $90 for the table and pay what they did for their inventory and not make any money. Well if you go to a toy show to buy a fig at cost then you must be smoking crack. And if I recall are prices were the best there that is why we sold out of new figs in the first hour. Excuse the hell out of us for trying to get rid of old crap that we have multiples of. Oh another thing if people should only pay cost then why do people pay $150 for a loose vintage Yakface and not retail of $2.97?????????? Geez some idiot needs to take a business class and see what supply and demand is about. Those simpson figs were my brothers and he set the price. That is why he only made $35, just enough to pay his part of the booth. Scalper go home your mom is calling you! Don't play with the big dogs unless you want to get bit!!!!!!!

How did we get so many multiples you ask? We had 7 sellers all sharing the same booth. Nice of you to assume the worst. Everyone set their own prices for their individal items. Is it scalping to make a few dollars on a few items and take a loss on a lot more? That's exactly what we did. Basic figures for $4.00 anyone? Some Episode One figures were even around $2.00 or so. If you had bothered to do your homework and research what you are talking about before making posts like this, you would know that our prices were well below anyone else's there. The reason that we had so many carded figures was because I recently moved and was forced to get rid of my carded collection for space reasons. That takes a lot of guts for the real scalpers to complain about us because he can't get the figures to sell to us. What a joke!

Hey guys,

Couldn't find the WM ARC 2-pack this weekend but I got some info from an employee Sat. about who to talk to. I stopped by the Orem WM this AM and met the mgr. of the toy dept. I asked about the availability of the 2-packs and he said they were totally out and didn't think more would arrive. Luckily another worker was right there overhearing the conversation. She said they had some more yet to put out that morning.

Anyways they had two cases of the 2-packs and I think both were put out right then. I got some ARCs from the one over by the Leappads, but I didn't notice where the other one was placed.

It seems to me that there are only 3 packs of ARCs per case of 12 and the other 9 are Anis and Yodas, but I could be wrong.

Good and bad news. AF WalMart had the WA-7 wave tonight; however, when I went elsewhere in the store I came across a guy with 20+ figures in his cart. I went back and noticed one WA-7, one Trebor, two Tambors and an Emperor on a bad card. I wonder if it was "the scalper". AF Target also had put out the ARC trooper/Yoda/Anakin case again.

The new green A-Wing is available now at the Target in Sandy. There were plenty(10-12) of them there. They are on the topshelf above the figures. They also had two 12 inch Leia's on Speederbike there as well. The A-Wing is 19.99. It looks pretty cool in the box and the new pilot has some awesome weathering on his uniform. His complexion is a little pale but in space there aren't any really good place to tan I guess.

AF Target this had 2 Aayalas, a couple of Yoda's+Chian, CW figs including the ARC trooper. I did not see any awings. The Sandy Target still has about 6-7 awings and the 2 Speederbike Leias. I opened the A Wing last night and it was quite impressive for a repaint. Even the pilot was a nice addition. There are no decals for the cockpit but at www.gadders.com they have a list of decals for ships that you can print if you need it.

I am really perplexed with this TRU. People have been finding stuff at Utah TRUs, including this one, but I can never seem to find anything new there as far as new Deluxe and regular figures go as well as the 3-packs.

I also snagged the last of the WA-7 wave at Orem Target (DV, Luke, and Faytonni). Thanks to CP I got the other two at AF WM. BTW, if anyone needs a WA-7 with a slightly dinged bubble, I hid one last night at the Orem Target. PM me if you want it.

If anyone subscribes to either ToyFair or Wizard Magazine, could they possibly let me have the coupon to redeem for the Exclusive Clone Pilot Mini Bust, if they aren't picking it up? I believe it's to be available in early 2004. The coupon will be an insert in either magazine and I'm not sure wich issue of either.

The Padme, Elan (Death sticks), OB1, Ayy (bodysuit Twiilek), and Bail Organa (Smits) are all in the same wave along with the McQuarrie concept Stormtrooper, an Imperial Dignitary, and maybe the Ackh-Med Beq figure.

I didn't think Black Friday would be a cornucopia of finding new stuff and I was right. However, I did find the new Stormie and Padme this morning at the Orem Target. Plus the new Lego X-Wing set is on sale for $10 cheaper this week there.

Layton stores have a bunch of the Saga wave with Bail in it, minus the Concept troopers that is.

Some stores have the remains of CW waves 1,2 and nothing from wave 3.

Man, you'd think since a guy only wants 3 of the figures being released to date, they wouldn't be so darn hard to find.


Got a look at the Han Unleashed and it is nice but it ain't no Fett so I passed until a later day. Sure hope I don't kick myself later for that.

Also, not a single Ultra Set was seen by me in my travels.

Hello guys, today I got the hot wave at TRU in Orem.

I was there last night around 5:30 and they were sold out. At least I finally found my Ackh-Med Beq.

I'm surprised that TRU is finally starting to come around about stocking basic figures. It's been about a year since they've had as many as they have now.

Orem and Springville WMs have about zero figures. I'd be really surprised to find out that the Orem store sold all those gazillion SW3 figures. I bet they just pulled a bunch off the pegs.

rs.com = www.rebelscum.com it is the other Utah forum that many or us frequent as well. I finally found Luke Hoth at TRU in Orem on Saturday. They also had quite a few of the Jedi 4 - pack. I have decided that I will not buy every rehashed figure that Hasbro is putting out. Or all EP1 or EP2 figs either. I think I will stick mostly to the original trilogy and figs that I think look cool. I got the Luke Hoth because I liked the look over the first couple of iterations of this figure. I passed on the Hoth Rebel Trooper. That one was just plain bad. I have not seen the Tatooine wave yet, still looking.

I've lost almost all interest in the 3 3/4" stuff lately. So you can say I've lost my MoJo really.

Just doesn't do much for me anymore. I think it's because what select few I do want to pick up, I never seem to find.

Right now I'd take a SAGA Jedi Luke, CW SA Clonetrooper, Animated clonetrooper and the soon to be available SILVER CLONETROOPER if I ever get the chance. I just don't actively go out hunting basic figures anymore. I do take a gander if I'm at a store, but I don't make it a point to go to look just for figures.

As for the unleashed, I just like the display options with them. I've got most of mine through fellow collectors and local collectors who keep a look out for me.

Last Unleashed I got from TRU was a Sidious, and have seen mass quantities of the Han and Han alone there as well. So I figure I can hold off to pick it up. Looking forward to the next few waves in this line, but I have low expectations for ever finding them for myself.

Sure hope Hasbro can do something to pull me out of this collecting funk soon. :D

Haven't yet found any HoF figures, so I don't know what they are priced. Anyone know?

The HAll of Fame figures are going for basic carded figure retail price. I found 'em at K-Mart. Unfortunatly they charge $5.49 each, so that's what I ended up paying. I'm sure Wal-Mart will be cheaper...$4.77 or whatever.

I hope you find 'em. Good Luck and Happy Hunting!!! :alien:

Amazingly enough I found new stuff at the Orem KMart yesterday. They had the Ultra Wampa, Jabba, and Denizen sets. The price was the same as TRU's ($10.99) and since I haven't found anything new this year at Target or WM I picked them up.

The B'Omarr Monk is freaking huge. I have the original one and don't think it is as big as this one. The wall-mounted thingy is kind of lame, but the Bubo looks good.

They had maybe one last Jabba and a couple of Wampas when I left. Still haven't put the Jabba's Palace Lego set on clearance.

Finally found toon wars Yoda this morning at Orem Target. Was told they were put out yesterday and had the Antilles/TFPilot wave as well.

They're out of Yoda and Cloneys, but have everything else.

I found that the Orem Target finally got in some cup-figure packs, but the cinema scenes are now gone. I asked an employee about where they went but as usual they claimed ignorance.

Does anyone know if they clearanced them (I looked all over but didn't find any) or if they just pulled them for return to Hasbro?

They pull them off the floor, and wait until a reset before putting them back out.

Sometimes clearenced sometimes not.

So you think they're not going to be clearanced right now?

I tell you what they should do. Just dump all those lame-o Gollums that keep crowding the SW shelves and stick them there. Better yet, trash all those crappy Bratz dolls on the clearance endcaps so they can sit there at $10 per.

Hard to say if they will be clearenced or not.

Sometimes Target takes things off the floor, wait for a reset, only to restock them at another time at full price, and then others they take it off the floor, wait for a reset, and then the stuff shows up on clearence end caps or with red stickers on them in the regular SW pegs.

Just keep an eye on them, that's how I got my 12" DooKu for $4.00.

They took all the 12" stuff away and like 2-3 weeks later it was back, yet moved to a different spot the SW section and had red clearence stickers on 'em. :D

Cool, thanks for the info.

They'll probably sell them to some scalper out the back door for the toy show in Ogden.

Ho hum...the drought continues. Orem WM has now shrunk the peg space down to two while Orem Target has about 9 pegs, 6 of them empty.

Hey everyone... It's been some time since I posted here. I've been basking in the abuse over at another site, and I've enjoyed seeing some of you there.

I'm here asking for some help...

Ryan reported in the Saga section at RS that he found the Jedi Cinema Scenes at Target for around 5 bucks each... If anyone sees them, please remember your pal Deanpaul. I need the two Jedi sets, package condition is not important.

I'd be very grateful if anyone can help me out. Thanks.

DP, so you've decide to slum it over here with the rest of us. ;) Actually, some days it's like watching the paint dry.

I've been looking out for them too, but have yet to see any. Maybe they got put out last night at some stores. They do them all differently.

So you want one of each JSC? I'll see what I can find.

Hey, that reminds me. Have you seen any SLC area WMs with clearanced SW Lego sets? If you do please LMK. I'm looking for possible another cheap T-16 so maybe we could trade.

Thanks MC - I have not been watching lego, but I'll watch for a T-16 for you. All I need are the Jedi Council Screen Scenes, 1 of each on sale.

Things look a little different since I was last here, although I am still a little nervous an admin will appear and chastise me for not posting "where/what/when" in my thread title... j/k :speech: That's the argument that drove me out initially.

Really? I think that happened a while back and it was one mod w/a B.U.B. trying to keep people from making unnecessary threads. I haven't had any flak for a long time.

The one thing I do like about here more than at RS is 1) the threads aren't 100% SW-centric and B) the people seem friendlier (no flaming).

I remember it being more divided than one person... I recall the beef being about some individuals wanting to be able to quickly scan reports from other areas to see what was hitting where without having to enter the thread. Good idea on the surface, but posts like this would have been unacceptable. They wanted to splinter conversations like this into the "community" or "club" section. Obviously it never happened, but there was a lot of heat about it at one time.

Thanks for helping me out with the Cinema Scenes - I'll give you a call to work out a pick up. Thanks to everyone who offered to watch for the sale.

Didn't look a whole lot this weekend, but where I did go there was nothing new..or just plain nothing. Still debating about whether this year or last year is worse.

Ah MC, seems as if RS's utah fan base is breaking up.

Most are moving to either Jedidefender and or Tylers new forum.

Like DP was saying, things have happend here much like what's going on at RS right now.

Just too many mods jumping in everyones buisness and trying to tell everyone how to post. It was the beef of not wanting anything more in the FINDS forums than that finds.

I enjoy all the other stuff besides just:
WM: bla bla waxs found at 0:00 on what ever street.

I still browse here and RS but have decided to find a new home, where it's mainly Utah based and eveyone knows your name. Much like Cheers.....:D

Well, I'll probably follow everyone over to the other forums, but I'm still sticking it out with SSG. I've been here for a very loooong time and still find it to be the best.

Just so we stick to the thread I did look around at Orem Target this AM. No new stuff except for a case of DM/OB1 cups.

Page 100, wow! There goes my little thread all grown up and saving China..

Bountiful Fred Meyers has the wave with R2 and R1 if any of you are looking for those... I'm not really buying stuff anymore since I need my money for other things, which brings up another topic.
I'm moving to Brazil in a week so this is more than likely my last post here (dont quote me on that). Oh, MC, thanks for the info you sent me awhile back on Brazil, I appreciate that. So see you all around, maybe I'll check back here when I get home and see if anybody is still around.
