Hey, A month back I found all of the new figures in a wal-mart in new boston ohio. I was happy and thought maybe Ohio was gonna start doing alright on stockin. wrong. I do have findings but none of them came from that store ever again and none were that great So. the other day at Target I found endor soldier w/ no beard. Thats all they had. ToysRus was normal, just pegwarmers. KB had 4 packs for $7.99 and all other figures were half off. I know the local targets are getting speeders but all the store collectors around here get them. No sign here of chewie and han. and Columbus Ohio. I dont live there but I live near. and if you live there you will agree with me. They have nothing. I have had more success in smaller less known cities than in the state capitol. I was kinda wondering how everyone else was doing. Has anyone found new deluxe sets, aayla, bariss, speeders. Or are all of us in ohio just screwed

I live near Columbus and have had some decent success at times. I have seen Han Hoth four different times now. The collection 2 waves are the ones that troubling me right now. I am still missing the research droids and the padawans. Don't give up hope maybe Target will start getting new stuff now that they have returned the pegwarmers. Heck I almost fell over when I saw Han Hoth at Meijers yesterday.

Sweet God. Meijers. I have honestly never found anything new there. I found aayla bariss, imperial, rebel soldier, yoda high council, library droids, lama su and clone boy, and all that one time in a wal mart I havent seen a 2003 figure since. that was a month or ago

I've gotten Obi-Wan, Tyranus, (both at Meijer) the two speeders (Target), and the Deluxe Droids (which are just sitting around at Target), and I've seen Teebo, Eeth Koth and the Rebel Fleet Trooper (at a Wal-Mart and a Target). That's it, except for the 12" which I don't collect. Cincinnati has been frustratingly dry. I know they're out there, I just can't find them. As for Collection 2, I went ahead and ordered a case from Entertainment Earth, but it's been delayed from April to May to June. Oh, and if you're in Cincy and need an army of POTJ Jar-Jars. Tesseks, and Landos, go to the Eastgate Biggs. That place rarely gets anything in.

I was looking around in columbus monday. All the targets had sent there figures back. There were no basic figures left. and they had stickers up for $4.99 for collection 2. The only star wars figures any target had was the exclusive Target deluxe sets. A guy told me even though they were a big target, they havent got any shipments of anything new including collection 2, the new deluxe, or the speeders

Found this afternoon at the Target on Rockside and Northfield: New Vader, Luke, Snowtrooper and Jango.

If these were found at this store... I'll bet loads of the other stores will be getting them soon!!!

thats sweet. I was wondering if anyone has found the army builders yet. But im glad you found those. a lot of stuff is shipped out this month. army builders, cinema scenes, hoth 4 pack, coleman, vader, luke, jango, wat tambor. and all kinds I hope they are easy to find. I was hoping with the new clone wars line they will get things moving. But those are great findings. Charish them. Because the way things are lately who knows when your next find will be

Well I have yet to find anything new SW, in a long while, over a month ago I found Han and chewie at Target. I've seen lots of the new ninja turtles wave 2 for anyone looking, and some new MOTU.

Found in Lake County TRU Clone Wars multi-packs, and Imperial Forces. Also, found the last wave of Deluxe figures for Saga at Targets. They still have two play-doh droids left.

P.S. If anyone has an extra Silver Fett I was wondering if they could sell it for me for cost and a little extra for waiting in line. I was going to go to Origins but missed my chance and now I can't make it to Gen Con. I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

I almost forgot. I also saw the new 12" wave at TRU but didn't pick it up because I don't collect 12" most of the time. For anyone that collects 12" they may still be there. The new figures are kind of hidden with the old 12" figures.

No... someone else posted that.

Found last night (7 July) at Target at Rockport in Rocky River (yes, kids... that one where the people wouldn't let me buy one of each of the accessory packs because they misread their policy of "only two of each item"): 1 Luke Skywalker: Throne Room Duel Lightsaber and 1 Darth Vader: Throne Room Duel Lightsaber.

Thought that was an odd quantity. Does anybody know how many they are shipping per case? The pegs are still empty other than a plethora of accessory packs. They have not had any basic figures (from what I can tell) since they had that clearance a couple months ago!!!

That is exactly how many I found and they are still there. However, did you notice all the Yoda sabers. I believe there was 4. My assumption is that 4 Yoda sabers come per case and the other two come 1 each.

I picked up the destroyer droid battle launcher the other day at TRU in Canton. K-marts are where Im finding the most new stuff though. The one by me still has the new Obi's and Dooku's.

Yeah... they had 4 Yoda sabers there and they had a couple of the "general" lightsabers. I think there was an orange one and a green one. *sigh* When will this madness end???

Is that the Target near Parma Mall?

I checked yesterday, it was BARREN!!!

Why doesn't Cleveland have any TRU's?

There are (were) tons of Gammorrean Gaurds at K*B in the Parma mall.

P.S. if you guys see any of the new ActionFleet line, let me know, they're my favorite.

The Target is in Bedford. NOT the one at Parmatown Mall. There are several TRU in the Cleveland area-one across from the Parmatown Mall, another on Miles Road in North Randall, and one on Lorain Rd. in North Olmsted. Are you new to the Cleveland area?? :confused:

I found the Leia, Han, and Maul at a TRU. Oddly enough, that was all they had. Found the 3-packs at KB toys for $12.99. Bought an extra Clone Trooper for myself so all they have left is the other stuff. But, they also had the vehicles for $25 each. I bought them.

But they are pretty low quality.

On a tip off from the Ohio Collector's Club postings, I stopped at the Mentor TRU on Sunday. Picked up the AAT. They had two Aqua Jedi Starfighters on the shelf. Some dude was in there right before me and I think he picked up one of the three (leaving the other two) they had. I think he also got one of the last 3-packs. There was nothing else to note on the shelves or pegs.

I have similar recon. TRU across from ParmaTown, after I left there was still Clone, and Droid 3 packs, 1 of each, but no other new items to speak of. Fairlawn area-TRU- Plenty of aqua Jedi StarFighters! AAT as well, but nothing new figure wise, but I think they had some 3 packs.

The clone pack is somewhat dissappointing, there is almost zero limb articulation, the kneeling one will forever kneel, the standing one will forever stand, and the laying one will forever hump the ground. But they are "Army Builders", not action figures, I suppose. Droid pack is just rehashes of all 3 types of droids, I like them.

Oh, BTW, Fairlawn TRU- 12" Tattoine Lando, and Han were instock at 11 am today.

07-14-2003, 05:38 PM
I still havent found any army builders in stores. I have a ton of them ordered on the internet. KBtoys is having a nice sale right now. all there 3 3/4 inch figures are $1.99 if you can find battle droids, destroyer droids, clones and SBD at KB that is a good way to build your armies.

Dayton Mall TRU has a few Smeagol, and a few Helms Deep Legolases along with a slew of Helms deep 5-packs. At least, they did when i left that store an hour and a half ago. ;)

No new SW stuff, the "multi-pack" labeled pegs were empty, and i didn't bother asking anybody if they were getting in more. HH! :D

07-15-2003, 01:51 PM
I know the Clonies are one posed scene builders but, as far as I am concerned, most of the Geonosian Battle Jedi figures are as well... so I'm not that surprised/concerned/disappointed. Luminara Unduli is a fine example of what I'm talking about. Articulation or not... she still really looks the same... *sigh*

darth_sidious
07-16-2003, 04:59 PM
I live in Akron, and its nearly impossible to find any basic figures like Aayla Secura, Lama Su, Yoda & Chian, etc...I think they skipped over these or something. I was able to find a clone with speeder bike and padme droid factory over a month ago..as well as action fleet, but thats it (walmart). TRU, which there are three in the akron area..have some new clone wars items and plenty of imperial forces sets, but no new figures; it feels like they are pushing the Clone Wars items while the Saga items get pushed back. I was able to find a droid army pack, and they still have droideka launchers at the chapel hill TRU; but does anyone know who has the figures? TRU said they are only receiving Clone Wars items..no new Saga as of yet. Does anyone near Akron know how to find these figures..other than ebay?

update: the Stow Target has Spider Droids and Super Battle Droid Builders, and they are already on clearance.

Jedi_Master_Guyute
07-16-2003, 08:39 PM
Sidious- I dunno what you got up there, but i assume you might have a Meijer store or two. They have been getting in new Saga figures a lot as of lately. I spotted some new Chewies, Hans, R2, Library Droids and whatnot there over the last few weeks. You might wanna try an online retailer (i go kebco) if worse comes to worse. I rarely see anything in my neck of the woods, so any Saga figures i spot are a godsend. Good luck!

darth_sidious
07-16-2003, 09:16 PM
JMG - I looked Meijer up...and it doesnt look like we have any up north for some reason. I usually try TRU, Target, WM, KM, or KB...but none of them have any new saga. I've only seen new saga at WM, they received 2 shipments (cases) of items...basic, deluxe, and action fleet and once those sold out, havent seen anything since. What we really need is a collector that works for a toy store..lol..inside information.

07-16-2003, 09:23 PM
I have pretty good luck finding things in columbus ohio. But I dont live in columbus I live in portsmouth Ohio. about 45 minutes away. I do awful as far as Portsmouth found toys. But as far as the saga figures go, I think if you havent found them yet, you may not. Because as darth_sidious said they are really pushing the clone wars. I think clone wars will be easy to find. I think they will let that stuff out in big amounts , because of the cartoon coming up and the popular comics. It will be like when EPII came out.
But I think people really need to get the saga figures off the net. Because as everyone confirms, they just arent out there
But in Ohio the stores I have had success with are TRU, Target, and Wal-Mart. and some people have been finding things in meijer. But toys r us and target are the best bets in Columbus Ohio.

WOW...I had a strange feeling (the force? lol) to stop at a certain TRU today on my way home and found ALL the new figures...every single one. They opened 3 cases, so I got one of each...they still have plenty. [Padme secret ceremony, coleman trebor, wat tambor, etc.] The TRU is the Rolling Acres TRU in Akron, on Romig Rd., hurry and get what you can before a dealer takes them all. Good luck.

PS- If anyone finds the jedi army or clone army packs in stores, pass the word along. Thanks.

I love that feeling!! Like, "eh, just MAYBE i should stop this store even though they haven't had crap in months and booya! new stuff!! I remember last July, my friend dave and i got an urge, well he did, to stop at Meijer Brice Road in cols and they had the new unleashed (anakin, Padme, vader) and they were rare at the time. I remember i was the first person to score them. Got front page news and everything. (sigh) memories! good score though, DS!!


Nothing in Sidney and Piqua. Didn't check greenville as to my route got changed at the last minute. Maybe this weekend if they don't change my schedule on me! :)

I too just had the feeling as I drove by the same TRU. I just walked in the door. Unfortunately they have been picked over pretty good. I did score a Han, Darth Maul, Wat Tambor, and Lama Su. The only left was 2 more Darth Mauls, and a Bariss Offee.

in columbus I went to a toys r us and they had no clone wars builders. But I asked the guy to check in the back and he brought out a nice case. So I bought them all. Then in KB at Tuttle mall in columbus I found army builders, federation tank and aqua starfighter. I bought a clones and federation builder there. and left the vehicles and two destroyer launcher sets At KB the sets are $13.99 instead of TRU $10.99

something else I found the other day was a Unleashed Obi Wan at TRU. and Prince Adam from MOTU. I thought this figure was supposed to be rare. At Media Play they had 3 or more of him. The Media play had a great selection of figures. No Star Wars. they said they would only get them for EPIII and maybe for the cartoon of clone wars

FYI - There is a store called KB Toy Works, in Cuyahoga Falls, which unlike most of the other KB Toys, has a big selection of clearance figures; however, the only thing I bought were clone troopers, and at $1.99, thats great for customs and army builders. Instead of waiting to find the Clone Wars army builders, with colored officers, I decided to start making my own, check out my green clone trooper below.

The Akron area seems to have been raided or something, the Targets in the area all got new Saga shipments and put them out, and within a day the pegs were bare. Han and Leia seem to be the only remaining figures (future peg warmers). Are there that many collectors in the area, or are scalpers getting everything? I was trying to find the Jedi Council and Geonosis War Room, as well as the new action fleet homing spider, but it doesnt seem they have arrived in this area yet, anyone seen these nearby?

Jedi Drew
07-31-2003, 05:47 PM
Target at Eastgate had one of each of the War Chamber and Jedi Council. Target at Cedar and Warrensville had two of each as of this afternoon. No new figures at either Target. HH ;)

Hey Drew, thanks for the info, but those stores didnt have anything. I did see the sticker for the scene packs however. I really hope they all went to collectors and not scalpers. I better not catch a scalper while I'm shopping, or I'll carbon-freeze the bastard, hehe.

Jedi Drew
08-01-2003, 09:12 PM
Maybe there are "LURKERS" and "SCALPERS" reading these posts. If it's cool with you I'll just PM you with the info of which store I saw new figures ect. at. O.K.?

darth_sidious
08-01-2003, 11:51 PM
Thanks Drew, that would be great. It would be useful if people that are nearby each other helped fellow collectors with what they need; and can notify each other when they find something of interest, to avoid these lurkers/scalpers from pickin stuff up.

So if anyone is in the Akron/Cleveland area, and is a collector, you should join this "alliance". The reason I post the locations of my finds is so other collectors can pick up what I found. So anyone near Akron, send me a PM and we can help each other out.

FYI- The Rolling Acres TRU in Akron put out new TPM clearance items, basic and deluxe figures, there were a few different types of Maul, and Qui-Gon, and accessory sets, etc; the prices were $0.90-1.97.

Yoda-Wan
08-02-2003, 02:50 PM
I think the PMs are a good idea.

Dayton Mall TRU has the figures AND Enviroment for Simpsons, wave 13. Price has been kicked up to 29.99 for the playsets now. Luckily, i had a 10 dollar gift card due to an incident a bit back, so it only cost me the original 20 bucks.

Also had the sword and Uruk-Hai Crossbow from Return of the King.

SW finds: I personally put back a clone army builder and the ONLY Bounty HUnter 4-pack back on the shelf. So, when i left @9, the had one clone army, one battle droid and about 3-4 droid launchers. (again, dayton mall TRU)

Happy Hunting! :D

Edit: forgot to mention the positive news i got from a TRU Employee: he informed that each of the three cases of Clone Wars Army Builders that were stocked on friday each had a Jedi Knight Army pack. While these are still 1 per case, it's helluva lot better than the ratio it was before. In time, these'll be easier to snag. cheers.

Finally after months, Target has redone their Star Wars toy selections. Today, Target Stores have replaced their old items with brand new ones. The clearance items have been moved out and replaced with new Saga figures, Scene Packs (Jedi Council and Geonosis War Room), and Clone Wars vehicles, including the command gunship. Pegs have been marked for Clone Wars figures, but none have been put out. Also, sadly, there was no action fleet area. I picked up some Scene Packs and they are really nice - get them while you can they'll all be gone quick.

Anyone in Akron needs to go to the Target behind Rolling Acres Mall. I just picked up the Jedi Knights 3-pack and Blue trooper 3-pack. There was still 3 of each left also had a coupled droid 3-packs and droid launcher, I passed on those. Nothing else new anywhere else I went.

Good intel dark_one, I picked up the jedi army and clone trooper army multipacks as well. Someone got to the jedi army packs, because I got the last one, but there are 2 more blue clone multipacks at the Rolling Acres Target, as well as the Scene Packs, which I already bought at another Target.

The only saga figure I have not found, that I want is the throne room vader, I've seen ALL the saga figures at local TRU and Targets, but not him. Eventhough the figures all vanish within a day, I'm surprised I havent seen him.

Likewise, I havent seen any new unleashed figures anywhere, TRU (which there are 3 in this area), only have padme and anakin, and no other stores seem to carry them. I'm looking for Darth Sidious, if anyone sees him...

Hey guys went to the easton target at 5:00 (yes, I know that is extremly late to go, but I couldn't get out at any other time), and was extremly angry, not just at the store, but at myself too. I saw they put out the new spider-man classics wave, NO KRAVEN (this is the last one I needed, already got dd). Then went to star wars, ONLY TO SEE THAT I MISSED OUT ON THE THRONE ROOM DUEL WAVE OF FIGURES! How did I know, I bet you are thinking, because there was the STUPID REPACK JANGO LEFT ON THE STINKIN PEGS. I should have went there at 8:00, then I would have found new figures. DARN YOU SCALPERS OR EMPLOYEES! FYI-KRAVEN IS ONE A CASE, OBVIOUSLY SCALPER MATERIEL! I BET THE SCALPER OR EMPLOYEE BOUGHT ALL THE NEW STAR WARS, DD'S AND KRAVENS! Then left those God-awful spider-man variations and jango repack just to mock me! sorry for the rant guys.

Target in Rocky River had Droid Launchers and Droid Army packs over the weekend. TRU at Montrose has Bounty Hunters. TRU at Randall has droid launchers.

I did serious paint jobs on the Droid Army pack I got. I'm just glad the Battle Droid has a magnet in the middle to hold it together. It's MUCH nicer than the Mace Windu pack-in junk.

I was at TRU and found this great game called "Star Wars: Epic Duels Game", which is a board game in the clearance section. Marked 50% off, so it was only $10...the great thing about it...it comes with 30 micro figures that are nearly in scale to the action fleet vehicles, and they are painted as well! Since hasbro cut the action fleet micro figures..this is a great way to get them. I included a picture of the micro Mace Windu aboard my action fleet Republic Gunship... :D

News on the easton target:
Well first off, went to the easton target today around 4:00. MUCH TO MY SURPRISE, I FINALLY FOUND MY SPIDER-MAN CLASSICS KRAVEN! He was hangin behind a daredevil. It was funny because Kraven is packed one to a case, and daredevil is packed two to a case, but instead of kraven being gone, a dd was gone. They also had the usual ten billion spider-man variation figures. THEY ALSO HAD THE CLONE WARS REPUPLIC GUNSHIP, JEDI STARFIGHTER AND AAT! No new figures though. Anyway, ON WITH SOME NEWS! EASTON TARGET WILL NO LONGER BE CARRING THE FOLLOWING LINES:

The Akron and surrounding area has been dry for about two weeks; after the new shipments came, that seemed to be the end of it. Most Target stores have the clone wars vehicles (AAT, Jedi Starfighter, and Command Gunship) and driodeka launchers, but thats about it. The TRU stores have the 4 pack of bounty hunters, etc, with not much more. I have yet to see any unleashed figures anywhere.

About a month ago I found saga figures twice, and then scene packs, and then the clone wars multipacks. All these items sold out quickly and were not restocked as of yet. I hope this isnt a pattern - and the stores restock what was sold out. In one case, a TRU stocked all new saga figures, when they all sold, they put the old figures back out. Then again, maybe Hasbro has some master plan of limiting the supply, in order to sell everything while they are in such high demand...

Hey guys. went shopping in columbus today. every Meijer I went to had army builders. Just not clones or jedi. I was impressed by how many they had though. All Targets were bad, except one I think in Easton. I found the coleman trebor wave. Just the 3po and jango. Every Target and TRU I went to had the clone wars vehicles. and wal marts had the luke and vader lightsabers. I had a question for you all though about Masters of the Universe. I used to love that in the 80's and still have my figures. But who in the hell is this Keldor character, is it skeletor in human form? and why are there gold and purple skeletors at TRU. Also every TRU had ultimate bounty

Okay guys here's the run down...Went to sawmill tru as the opened at 9:30 am., ran to the star wars section, okay nothing new, I can live with that, than to batman, nothing, than to motu, nothing. So I go to lotr, I WAS EXCITED AS I SAW THE CASE ASSORTMENT FOR EOWYN! But than I discovered that.............................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. SHE WAS NOT THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so mad...There is NO way anyway could have gotten her before I did, and if they did, I would have saw them walking around with her...I BET THE EMPLOYEES TOOK HER! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. This is why I hate the sawmill tru, they never have anything. Anyway if you want the 8 in. treebeard (x2), blue package gollum or smeagol, sawmill tru is your stop. Then off to target, they had my blonde imperial officer, BUT NO SCREEN SCENES! SEE! I KNEW THE WOULDN'T BE THERE TODAY! Anyway after I got my blonde officer, here's what was left:a blonde imperial officer, rebel fleet trooper brown hair, lama su and I think teebo, but I am not sure about the teebo. I was at least glad I found something...Then off to meijers, nothing new. so all's I got was a blone officer.

Akron continues to be dry, but a few more clone wars multipacks are being put out. I have one blue clone trooper pack hidden away, since I know several of you are looking for clones. If you're someone that posts findings, and are a collector, send me a private message, and I'll give you the location. Also, if anyone has an extra green clone pack, I'll trade you for my extra blue clone pack.

The Chapel Hill Target has red battle droids if anyone needs them; and the Montrose/Fairlawn WM has all the new lightsabers.

It looks like the earlier 2003 summer waves are being re-released, or are hitting the shelves for the first time. I found the throne room vader, luke, snowtrooper, among others at the Chapel Hill/Cuyahoga Falls TRU today. While I found han, chewie, boba, secret ceremony anakin, among others at the Fairlawn Target. I only got vader - each store had multiples of each figure, plus a few singles.

The earlier 2003 summer waves that are being re-released, are also being restocked very fast. When I last posted my findings, they sold out, and were restocked the next day with a fresh case. Every Target store in the Akron area seems to finally have pegs of figures once again.

If any of you have or find a couple extra let me know. The newest wave of single figures I have seen is the re release 3po and jango wave. I found them at Target. and I keep fginding the lightsaber with figures at Kay Bee. I hear they are at TRU too. Its a pretty good deal if you need any of those lightsabers.

These are great items, as good as the first wave, if not better. The Target Stores are restocking the Scene Packs this week, so keep an eye out for them. If you missed the first wave of scene packs, TRU carries them now.

Target in Rocky River had Clone Wars figures, 2 War Room #2 and 1 Jedi Council #2 (Depa's head was broken off!). Target in Avon Lake had 2 each of Screen Scene Assortment #2. Target in Willowick had nothing. Target Univeristy Heights had nothing other than some figures from the last blue SAGA wave. Target in Bedford has Geonosian Fighters and Hailfire Droids (as of 15.09.03) and it looked like a fresh case as there was 4 of each. NONE of the Wal*Marts had any new merchandise. When I mean "none" I mean: Mentor, Great Northern, Macedonia, Willowick & Brooklyn. It's all sad with Wally-World.

I have been in detroit for the past couple of weeks. Havent had much time to hunt locally. WM and Target in Medina are full of the clone wars figs and assorted saga. I have been seeing the clone wars all over lately. Seems the stores are getting stock pretty regularly.

Also I must say that I am fed up with Kebco. verything I had on order I found in the stores before they shipped it out. I thought the whole purpose of PRE-order was to get it first. Also the first two shipment I recieved the figs were damged, well the bubbles were crushed not the figs. So my stock arrived later than in the stores and they were in poor condition. Why am I paying an extra dollar plus shipping when I can run down the street and pick them up. My buddy has had the same problem. Is it just us or has anyone else got stuff after its been in the stores?

Dark one- no, you have it all wrong my friend, pre-order is simply "you're ordering it before they have it in stock" I've been dealing with KEBco for nearly year and a half and have had nothing but excellent dealings with them. You have to understand that you are not the only person who is dealing with them; they have tons of pre-orders and it's first come, first serve. Hasbro has had problems with stock lately, which is why their stuff is late. Hell, i'm just now getting the Throne room wave, but i'm always getting CW stuff that hasn't seen the shelf yet. If you head to KEBco's site, you will see notices about Hasbro not sending them stock. I think they said that they've only gotten like 40% of their orders (this was like a month back) hell, in the last month, i've had nearly 200 bucks worth of orders coming in. Patience, my friend. :D

Nothing in Athens as of today.

Everyone's had the second parts of those sets. It's the first parts that have been so bloody hard to procure! *sigh*

And, yes, Dark One... a pre-order is a request to obtain before the actual e-tailer places THEIR order with the manufacturer... just so they know how many they need to get and not run short.

Store: K-mart
Location: Garfield Heights, OH (Rockside Road)
Time: 11h30 EST
What: Clone Wars Multipacks

There were several Separatist Forces packs (as usual) but there was one Jedi Army set and two Clone Trooper sets (both contained the Yellow Trooper with electrobinoculars).

Target in Fairlawn put out a fleet of A-wing fighters today, there were 2 on the shelves and another 10 on top! They also had the hailfire droid and the geonosian fighter (3 of each). The Akron Target also had the hailfire droid and the geonosian fighter.

PS - Is anyone in the AKRON area still out there? I haven't posted on here for awhile because it seemed like I was the only one in Akron doing it.

PSS - I have an extra Coleman Trebor, WA-7, and Faytonni for trade, among others on my updated list below if someone needs them.

I posted this on the Ohio Collectors thread and decided to toss it here to, just in case.

K, did some mondo hunting tonight, due to it being my first weekend home in some time. Ya gotta blow that paycheck!!! h ehehehheeheh First off, i picked up the : LOTR Armored Troll and the Simpsons Be-Sharps playset!! Both of these are awesome!!! The armored Troll is a repack of the FOTR troll, but i like this one too much to pass on it. Plus, it has new stuff and looks different, thus is it truely a repack? OoooooooooOOOOOOooooooooooooo Dwell on that one! :crazed:

Here is a list rundown of what i saw tonight:

TRU Dayton Mall- Many Simpsons THOH4 Playsets, 2 Be-Sharps Sets remaining, numerous Armored Trolls and the first wave of the CW line, just basic figures, i didn't spot any deluxe.

KB Toy Stores- Lancaster and Dayton Mall- Both had NUMEROUS FOTR figures. I saw a majority of Samwise and Gimli figures at both locations, i do believe.

Troy Wal-Mart- a few Uruk Hai w/ Crossbow and the CW basic line, no deluxe.

Nothing else comes to mind. HH kids! :D

AWESOME SCORE TODAY!
I got dannl faytoni, wa-7, emperor, luke (repack...still questioning why I got him) and HAWKGIRL! A huge plus was the girl when hawkgirl wouldn't ring up at the cash register! The lady was like Do you remember the price? I honestly didn't so of course I said No. The lady, instead of calling the toy department said Can I just ring it up as one of these (holding a star wars figure)? I said You could. Of course she didn't give a damn, so I got hawkgirl for 4.77! Great day...

When I was in toys, I talked to another star wars collector. He worked at meijers and said they, indeed had ack-med-beq...IMPORTANT PART STILL COMING-I talked to him for a little while and our main topic was hasbro and expanded universe.

Also a funny story how me and the guy at meijers started the conversation. He started with "Hey, you're taking all the new figures!" I was kinda mellow and was just like (at least I think I said this) "that would appear so." And the conversation took off. He was a great guy to talk to, hope to see him again! Should have got his name, but it would only drag up the phone bill. The guy was totally cool. Anyway guys just remember I would never take ALL the new figures, just the ones I need!

The guy went and looked to see if their were any boxes he could get too but he couldnt find any of em. He told me to come back tomorrow and they should have a bunch of new stuff.

I found the new clone w/ speeder (last one) along with 2 durge w/ swoop and 2 red clone multipacks, which I left; at the Fairlawn Target. They also had a few A-wings left.

Is it just me, or does Durge look like shredder from Ninja Turtles??? Also, should the clone that comes with the speeder have red eyes? Mine does and my saga clone w/ speeder had brown eyes.

If anyone still needs the TRU 4 packs, the Fairlawn TRU put out some more, including the bounty hunters and hoth packs.

Tons of cinema scenes both waves 1 and 2. Unleashed Luke, obi and Palps. The second wave of Bats figs, sans Mr. Freeze.. sad face... ML gift sets, both the alley and the x-men one, so I guess those are not really hard to find.

In other news, I FINALLY GOT ROBIN! He was at the easton target, RIGHT IN THE FRONT OF THE PEG! Sadly, I saw the mr.freeze wave there, minus mr.freeze, that's how I knew this wave was out. I was going to call all the targets, but I think it would be a waste of time because I will either sit on hold, or if they do have it, they'll use the stupid "collectible policy" and won't allow me to put mr.freeze on hold.

All the TRU had all the TRU 4 packs, council scenes and war rooms, army builders "no clones" and unleashed obi wan luke and sidious wave.
and clone wars wave 1
The TRU on sawmill road was the best they had all that stuff, anakin and dooku speeder, waitress droid x3, wat tambor x2 padme in wedding dress x1 and they had Lt. fatonni but a dude there looking picked that up.

On a side note: Durge/Speeder & Clone/Speeder were spotted at K*B Toys in Fairview Park. They are priced $14.99 (yeah... I know) and there are two of each. There were also about 2-4 packs of Clone Trooper army builders with a red one in the prone position.

Did some MASSIVE hunting today in the dayton area, so here are my results:

Trotwood
Target- not much, simpsons wave 14 and mostly Saga figues with a few CW wave 1
Toys R Us- Lots of lost saga figures (Aalya) that i never saw at retail mostly, a few CW wave 1
Meijer- CW wave 2, just Obi though

Dayton Mall
TRU- CW figures, simpsons wave 14
KB toys- old Ep III figures
Target- last few waves of saga

Beavercreek
Target- CW wave 1
TRU- Lots of Saga/CW
Meijer- Wave 2 CW, just Obi and Mace

Troy
Wal-mart- ML wave 5 Reed and Silver surfer
Meijer- still wave 1 CW and lots of 3 packs; nothing much

I"m hoping that Target gets in the Aztec simpsons theater as TRU has it for WAY too much. Also saw a Mr. Freeze in a collectors shop in dayton mall, but they're bastards and charge WAY too much. Looked neat though. HH! :D

Star Matty- i believe his price tag was in the 50 dollars or more, region. The thing about this scalper store is that it's RIGHT next door to the KB toys, so i'm sure either
A. they just walk over as SOON as they open and snag things up or
b. They have a deal with the employees

It's kinda sickening though cos they have figures on their walls for sale and they're all "hard to find" characters, i think i counted like: 4 jokers, 5 Robins, 3 Eowyns, Twilight Frodo, and a slew of CW figures...the CW figures were running like 19.99 and up...i looked at one ofthem and said, rather loudly, "holy sh--, 20 bucks?!? I just saw this at TRU for 4.99!!" I like to go in there and laugh and make wise arse comments about their prices; needless to say, they don't like me very much there. Cheers! :D

All TRU I went in in columbus had Clone Wars wave 2, coleman Trebor wave, the new unleashed wave with han, Anakin Starfighter, clone wars wave 1,cinema scenes, and new deluxe figures.

Targets just had clone wars wave 1 and cinema scenes

Media plays are where I have done the best. They are getting all the new figures. I even picked up 3 red ARC troops at the media play in Eastland on Brice Rd. They had one left, but all media plays i go in have tons of star wars.

In Portsmouth Ohio The Wal-Mart had the obi wan nightclub wave and clone wars 2.

and it seems wal mart is a greta place to find the new deluxe Ultra figures. I have seen the general, 3po with pod and wampa at TRU and wal mart. They seem to be getting them the most

Gonna hopefully see rotk tommorow. Hope it won't be a big dissappointment (ex. TTT). Though Christopher lee is one of my favorite actors, I am very mad at PJ for sauruman getting cut out. A lot of things revolve around him. PJ is selling out to much....

12-18-2003, 07:44 PM
I disliked TTT as well. I will also see ROTK on Friday. I have a feeling PJ is getting a bit too carried away with a few things. But unfortunately his fans allow him to do the hellish things he does to his films. Why couldn't he have fans like us (or some of us) who disagree with most everything the director does, like Jar Jar (even though I liked him, just giving examples.)

I read the book. I kind of wish they at least left the Palantir in TTT. They might not have needed Sauruman but it would have made TTT and ROTK about the same lengths. Many of the changes were kind of elaborte, especially the battle at Helm's Deep. When I read it, it only felt like a skirmish.

Hey, JD, if they have any more, please snag a set for me as my town is barren and i go back to school on sunday, so it'll be the last time i'll be able to hunt for them. if not, no problem, just thought i'd ask. thank you :D

JP- thanks man! I really appreciate it!! It's making me nearly pull my hair out as some targets are like, "Target stores don't get in any new stock until after the new year!" and i'm just like, "Then why are these being found all over the state?!!?" You know they're just sitting in boxes in their backrooms. Then, i don't know if the Targets in your area do this, but sometimes the operator asks what you're looking for when you call and she'll look it up on the computer and 99% of the time she says they don't have any. That just irks me as i don't trust that; what is she searching under?! What if it's under a different name?!?! How hard is it to send me back to toys to talk the person back there so they can look?!?!

On top of that, NONE of the best buy's in my area have the DVD i want (Aqua teen Hunger force) and you can't redeem gift cards on their site?!?!? the hell?!!? Ahhhhhh!!! This state needs to burn!!! AHHHHHHH!! I think my eye is twitching now. hehehheheheehhe :p

HOLY CRAP ON A CRACKER!! FELLOW OHIO LOTR COLLECTORS, GET YOUR CANS TO MEIJER!! They have reduced their LOTR stock.

OLD ROTK figures (regular bubble packaging)- 1.90
Rotocast figures- 2.20
Beast and rider sets- 8.40

They also had in the Trilogy figures, which are 5.99 and i got an..........ARWEN!!!!


I also got the T3 & Neo in Chateau box sets for 12.40 each!!! The APU was also discounted; no sign of the sentinel.

No reductions on SW figs though. HH!! :D

whats up guys. In my area near Portsmouth Ohio the wal marts have been doing great on keeping star wars in stock. They have had the Ultra, new hoth soldier and luke wave, some of CW 2 and all of CW3. But star wars is all they are getting. No wrestling LOTR Marvel, or MOTU. Its weird they have star wars now, because they dont any other time. all the stores up here give that we dont have anything speech because of the new year also. It does seem many stores are empty in their toy aisles. I guess cause invantory for new year, but you would think they could put something out. I cant wait for them to re stock everything. Also I will be going to columbus soon. I dont know how things are up there but if I find anything I will post it. Hopefully in columbus they will have more stuff out on the shelves like they always do. I always have good luck in columbus, but I dont know how things are goin there. good luck to all of you. Hopefully since its the 2 day of the year now and time is passing, all our favorite stores for toys will get their sh,..... they'll re stock

Well, toy hunting as drawn to a close for me until springtime. I'm now back at school and without a car, plus, there is only like 1 wal-mart for about 45 miles and that's it (i'm at OU in athens). However, did one last stop at the Lancaster Target and lucked out; i found more figures today than i did during my 6 week vacation! I got:

Clone Wars figures!!!!!!!!!!
Incredible Hulk figures (all except abomination)
LOTR Trilogy Figure- Boromir


So, start checking targets for Hulk & LOTR figures!!

JP- i would've snagged the CW figures from you, but i remember reading the posts where another Ohio forumite hooked you up, right?!? if not, let me know and i can try to hook ya up. SORRY if ya still needed them; i thought you got them from another forumite! :D

I was just at Meijer and picked up Wat Tambor, WA7, and Anthony Daniels for $1.10 each. These are not advertised anywhere you just need to price scan the fiigures to find which ones are on "sale" (the Hoth Trooper they had was $5.99). However Barriss and Aayla didn't scan so the cashier gave them to me for the same $1.10 price. 5 figures for under $6.00 isn't bad!

Hell hath frozen over in athens: we have new toys! Athens wal-mart got in the Hulk legends, X-Men classics and new SW stuff.

HL- smart hulk, joe fixit, savage hulk,- NO ABOMINATION (ARGH!!!!!)
XMC- Just wolverines, as usual. This line is already dead before its begun.
SW- New Luke, R1-G4, new IMperical dignitary, Hoth Soldier and the rest of that wave.

Hit your Local Walmarts!! Found the Jabba's Palace wave including the deluxes. Got Jabba, B'Omar, Lando, Rappertuine, J'Quille, Holo Luke. The receipt shows Rappertuine as Shawda Ub which was kind of odd. I guess Tanus doesn't come out until the Death Star wave. Another bummer is that the R1 doesn't come in this case.

Great Morning and a nice hit to the bank account.

And in columbus, they are kicking *** 2
sawmill, bryce, and morse roads TRU keep getting in the new, and all the targets I went to on tuesday had animated series 1 and 2
