Are there any collectors here that reside in Iowa? Particularly Eastern IA, Waterloo, Cedar Rapids, Dubuque, the Quad Cities, or areas in between?

If so, what have YOU seen?

Nothing at CR eastside Target or Wal-mart today at 11:00.

I think Scruffziller lives in Iowa. If you lived on the western part (Council Bluffs) i could pass on where things pop up at occasionally but thats not much help to you. But keep checking Targets. Mine recently had new saga but when the case was bought up and the pegs restocked i was looking at pilot Jangos again.

Iowa City/Coralville here. I barely go out more than once or twice a month to look.

Hows collecting over there in your neck of the woods? The furthest i go into Iowa (not for a lack of liking the state, it seems like a nice place) on a regular basis is Council Bluffs. There arent many SSG posters who are from Iowa, as you can probably tell, but i have seen some Star Wars sites that have a decent amount of Iowa residents posting their finds.

I don't really "collect" any more. I get the internet exclusive figs, and there's a few places where I can buy WotC Miniatures. There really isn't anyplace that sells the Gentle Giant Minibusts here, but I think there are in Cedar Rapids (where the closest TRU is). The main reason I go is to go look for some one else to get some figure or part to help me make a custom fig (although anything with a cantina fig I'm all over it).

I remember living on that side, well Nebraska side while I was at Creighton. I usually had better luck with the finds in Council Bluffs than I did in West O and the Target on Saddle Creek.

Just found 2 Scorches at the Coralville Target. There are no more clearance VOTC figs there though.

That I do. I used to collect but not really any more. I mainly get Jabba's Palace and Cantina figs now. I also will get real cool exclusives if they catch my eye, like Christmas Vader. Or a fig that I just have to have, but that is the extent.

Found the Collector Tins for Episode IV-VI while at wal-mart waiting for my tires to be rotated in Coralville.

Did the "coralridge rounds" while out picking up somethings for the upcoming wedding...

Target, lots of Heroes and Villians/Galactic Hits etc. Also the Endor/Tatooine 2 Wave, didn't see Luke, but plenty of Black Trooper, Naboo, Podracers, etc. About 9-12 Shuttles on the end.

Walmart had all the Tins including a glut of Cantina Band ones.

Even went to Kohls to see about them stocking VOTC figures (and one of the primary reasons the deadling for the trooper was extended) 3 Hans and a Sandtrooper. If there would've been a 5th figure of either type, i would've grabbed them to get myself another lucas trooper.
