I'm actually from East Texas so I won't be going to the toy show although I wish I was. I'm always intrested where else in Texas the figures are showing up at because they aren't any where I live.

The last new figure I got was Hoth Luke to go with my Wampa back in early February. My local Walmart must have sold a hundred lightsaber which they frequently restock yet they never put out any new figures.

Lazer Brain
04-22-2004, 05:19 PM
well, ric , all the walmarts around here SUCK, i was talking to the manager to the toy department at a walmart here, he said that they have not got anything new in months, so he had his stock 'gun' computer thingy and swiped the empty racks while i was standing there, and behold it said that he still had two cases in inventory, but , we both knew that that was wrong. he said that they were probably stolen and that it would take an act of congress fore managment at Wal mart to right off those cases as lost so the orders can be restocked again. so theres a story for you, i wonder how many shelves will remain 'stocked' with Ghost figures???

Hey Lazer Brain, do you ever shop for SW in Austin? It looks like I'll be moving there soon, and I'd love to know if there are any particularly good stores around. I've been there before and am generally familiar with where stuff is … I just haven't really had time to look for figures, etc.

YES! austin is a great place to hunt, there are plenty of "antique" stores that carry lots of vintage and hard to find figures. and the city wide garage sale is going on soon. there is also a local SW collectors club,i will post the link when i find it. they are also very well suppied, they always get stuff before we do here in san antonio.

That's awesome Lazer Brain. I just canvassed Austin's Wal-Marts last night and they weren't putting out anything new yet. Have the repaints and Evolutions been readily available down there, or is this actually the first time you've seen them? Also, I've not seen the Tarkin wave anywhere up here. Have those figures been on the shelves there?

ndjedi

Somebody has. I saw several of them listed on ebay by some guy here in Austin. Don't know where he found them, because I hit these stores almost daily. Oh well, our time will come …

trandoshan666

Found the green clone commander today at TRU. There were three of them and I bought two. I still haven't seen the other repaints or the Tarkin wave around here, though. Maybe I have the case assortments screwed up, but I thought the black clone pilot and red shocktrooper were supposed to be packaged with the green commander.

Kidhuman
09-01-2005, 11:50 PM
No, The shocktrooper is packaged seperatly. The Green Commander is with the Black pilot I do believe. You might have missed it unless you grabbed them case fresh and busted it open.

Managed to score a shocktrooper today at TRU. There also were plenty of green commanders, but no sign of the black clone pilot, and absolutely no signs of the Tarkin wave. I also noticed that another Target in my area has the TIE fighters out and was sporting the five packs of ROTS collectors cases.

trandoshan666
09-11-2005, 10:28 PM
After seeing only one of them ever, I came across two red guards today (one at Sears Grand and one at HEB). I passed on both of them — pretty random, though.

I've come across several Clone Evolutions packs today (Thursday) and yesterday at area Target stores. I bought one. Also, one Target finally had new figures — they put out two cases of the shocktrooper/green commander wave. I found absolutely nothing but a host of Palpatine figures at TRU today, but noticed that they had downsized the Star Wars section a little.

That's awesome Lazer Brain. I scored 57-59 and 63 this morning at Wal-Mart in North Austin. No sign of 60-62, though. I know they weren't there, because I happened to arrive just as the guy unloaded all 12 of their cases. Were 60-62 in collection 2, by chance?

A couple of side notes: One of the cases unloaded at Wal-Mart was nothing but Vader figures — I thought that was pretty weird, and so did the worker who put it out.

Also, Target and TRU were loaded with Clone Trooper Evolutions packs and Rebels versus Empire and Jedi vs Separatists packs today.

Holy crap, I finally found a black clone pilot tonight at Wal-Mart. Didn't see any signs of 60-62, though. Hey Lazer Brain, were those figures plentiful in your area?

Saw more Plo Koon fighters and Clone battle packs on end caps at various stores in Austin. I was disappointed with the clones, so I passed on them. I suspect that I'll never get another crack at them.

No, the clones were the 5 packs. A vendor at the Comic Con last weekend was selling the Shadow Troopers, and he told me that his came from overseas and they wouldn't hit U.S. Targets until around the day after Thanksgiving.
I also have not come across those last five basic figures, and with the oversaturated shelves at most stores and the impending launch of the Saga 2 line, I'm a little nervous that I might not find it at retail.

Found the final five at target new Braunfels and the remnants at target forum. So in NB I got one of each and 2 of the troopers, the holos seam to be the ones that are short packed for now. Then I found one more wookie at the forum, Good luck.

I managed to score one of each of the final five and Meena Tills Friday at Target in Austin. Three of the figures were sort of deformed, though, so I'll keep looking for them. I also got the TRU exclusive Holographic Emperor on Friday night. The store apparently had just gotten in the exclusives.

I had checked earlier in the day with a different TRU, and they told me they hadn't gotten the exclusives in yet. TRU wouldn't just sell me the figure, so I had to buy $30 worth of Star Wars stuff, and it was free.

trandoshan666
11-03-2005, 06:43 PM
Got a new Meena Tills and another special ops trooper — they were all that remained of the wave at Target near me. Now if I could only find that case with Tarkin and Ask Aak …

Holy crap the collecting well has been dry here lately. I've been looking high and low for Tarkin to no avail, and upon reading reports of the Separation of the Twins figures showing up, I hit three north Austin Wal-Marts in search of them — again to no avail. However, I did notice that all three stores were stocking the early bird kit — and lots of them, so all was not lost.:thumbsup:

Lazer Brain
11-29-2005, 11:58 PM
and the TWINS!! i found them tonight at walmart NB and i pick up a tarkin for you too trando!! they are on the pallet and marked for next week to be put out, but the box says exclusive in red letters so it stands out like crazy. hope you can find them and even if you find a tarkin i'll hold on to this on for now, unless you can get to nb.

When it rains, it pours. I found this assortment tonight at a Wal-Mart in north Austin, and yes, I finally got Tarkin too. Thanks though for nabbing one for me. I appreciate it. About the Separation figures … I really love these things. The figs are way better than I thought they would be, and the cards are pretty cool too. It's weird that we both found them on the same day. I guess they're probably hitting all over central Texas now.

Either they are not with this shipment or they are being picked by the stockman, I think the later.

Good for you, Lazer. It looks like finding this Scorch figure is really going to suck. Not surprisingly, I haven't seen the Geonosis wave here yet. Most of the stores don't have any saga collection stuff on the shelves right now, and I don't see that changing much.

trandoshan666
02-08-2006, 10:40 PM
Wow. About an hour after my last post, I dropped by my neighborhood Target to get my wife a birthday present, and incredibly, a guy in toys was putting out a case of SW basic wave 2.5. He hadn't even opened the case yet when I caught him. I bought all of them including both 3PO variations and the Utapau clone trooper -- sweet paint job! I'm still in disbelief that I found all of these so early.
I should start going to stores only to buy non-SW stuff. Maybe that's the ticket to magically finding the toys I'm looking for.

Agreed — completely. It looks like the entire SSG community is just going to migrate over there, so it ought to be pretty cool.

On an unrelated topic, have you come across any of the vintage-style figures yet? I haven't seen any up here, and am getting a little antsy. I'm also dying to get ahold of that Target exclusive Grievous.

I was in a Wal-Mart today, and stopped by the action figures to see what the store had (not much), and I saw something that threw me through a loop: Hanging among the Saga Collection figures was an AOTC blue-carded Anakin Peasant Disguise figure — and it was in good shape. WTF?

Still haven't seen the Tatooine wave, but Heroes and Villains are popping up everywhere. Of course, I am violently opposed to collecting repacks — especially of figures I bought a year ago or less — so I'm not buying any. I did see about 15 CW gunships at a local TRU today.

Damn, I've only hear of the Tatooine wave once here. The local Targets don't have it, just one cruddy WM. I just checked on the Hunt for Grievous pack today, but TRU had nothing. The only thing that I saw of interest was one WM that had quite a few vintage Biker Scouts hanging.

trandoshan666
06-08-2006, 07:39 PM
Had a sucky day today -- I called a local TRU this morning to see if they got the Hunt For Grievous in, they said they had it, but it wasn't on the floor yet, but all I had to do was ask a team member and they would retrieve one out of the back for me. I went there; a team member hunted for about 40 minutes, but came back empty-handed. So, I called the two other TRUs in town and got the "We had it this morning, but it's sold out" line.

I still can't find the Tatooine wave either.:mad:
