Just writing to say hi to all. And to tell everyone that Orlando rockz and can't wait til I finish college so I can move over there. Well yesterday went to my local KB Toys here in Puerto Rico and every episode 1 and power of the force figure we're in clearence. I bought Queen Amidala & PAdme for 2 dollars each. Also bought Hoth rebel soldier for 2 dollars and the Jabba the Hutt with the glob for 1.99 and that is the best Jabba ever made. I also bought Boba Fett from episode 2 but that cost me 5 dollars. Well I'm still trying to finish my Episode 2 topps cards collection I still need 13 more. If anyone out there has some and wants to trade let me know. Well I got to run. May the force be with you...always!!!

Absolutely nothing new here. :(


Local Walmart has two 12" Dagobah Luke w/ Yoda on clearance for $20. Hopefully that means POTJ is next-in-line, although all we have here now are Zam and R3.

It looks pretty cool, but it is just another Battle Droid and at $10 bucks a shot I had to be selective. I bought the Biker Scout one, which I think is the coolest. :D

What I'm waiting to find are the new MAce Windu and count dooku lightsabers by rubies. they are on e-bay now but once they hit stores here you can get them for around $8 each.
Still no new stuff here in Tampa other that the Jango room guard.
Speaking of SW cards, my walmart sold out of all of theirs and never got more in!! I still need quite a bit!

Hello, my friends, I was at Target in Altamonte today and they were fully loaded with Star Wars figures, but not accessory packs. They did have every new Star Wars figure that is new there though. You name it, they had it. I didn't buy anything except for a pack of Star Wars cards. Now I only need numbers
6
9
13
21
26
49
52
56
91

So, if anybody has these ones let me know. I have quite a few more doubles obviously.
Has anybody seen Ki-Adi Mundi in another store apart from that Disney store? I just might have to go and spend twenty-eight dollars, you know.

FOund the action fleet and the Target accessory packs today. I passed on all of them. The figures in the accessory packs are pretty poor quality and over priced in my opinion. The action fleet looked nice though.
No sign of C3PO or deluxe Yoda yet

hi. I just wanted to report that in the local WM I found Djas Puhr,Temmto and Ki Adi Mundi. In that WM they had every figure of the saga collection I think the only one they didn't have was Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, but because I wasn't looking for him. But got the others. Now to wait until PR gets Anakin (Tatooine) & Darth Maul. Okay got to run. Bye.

Well folks,
I made a trip up to West-by-God-Virginia to pick up my daughter. Every Walmart, Target, and Kmart from Titusville to Charleston, WV has the same crap we have here. The only thing I did find of interest was plenty of Sneak Preview figures at a Walmart in Orangeburg, SC near the Prince of Orange mall. They had 15 Clonetroopers, and twice as many Zam's, R3s, and Jango's. The newest Saga figures I found anywhere were the Vader, Jango, Mace, Han, Chewie, and Obiwan, in great supply.
I got my 2 sets of Anakin/Maul from DnS toys. Luckily, one of each was in pretty good condition. The only thing that sucks about being a MOC collector and ordering online is, you never know what someone elses idea of "MINT" is.
Anyway, the Anakin "kick" feature isn't that obtrusive. I doesn't really "kick". He kinda does a split. The rest of the figure is pretty cool. The Maul, in his pretty red trimmed outfit, is actually a decent sculpt, and has the POTJ Rebel Trooper leg type articulation. The "spinning" feature is not too bad. One "wheel" moves his entire arm, the other "wheel" spins his forearm. Really a fun feature.

AT-AT Man
08-07-2002, 10:22 PM
today was a great day, i finally found palpy and djas, and to top it off i met a new collector who lives by me, i told him about the website, maybe he'll join. well i also bout a second ObiJSP, to swap heads with my extra CC obi.

I saw that some of you guys are buying the new He-man figs. Well, so am I and I am in desperate need of....Mer-Man. I know, big surprise. I saw him once at K-Mart and passed 'cause I didn't want to pay $10 when they are cheaper everywhere else. Stupid me. If anyone can help me out and hook me up w/ that fishy you know what, PLMK.

Well IJG, thanks just PM or e-mail me with any info. Well today when I got from college to my surprise I got 3 packages full of star wars figures. I got Luke Bacta tank,Darth Maul final duel from POTJ,Obi Wan (training) from POTJ,All of the flashback photos figures except for Emperor Palpatine,Cantina Showdown (Cinema scene),Leia from Shadows of the empire,Nute Gunray and Destroyer droid from Ep 1 and Unguants. Okay I am going to stop buying figures for now until I buy all my college books, but probably I will buy them by wednesday. Oh also I got Jango Fett sneak preview. And I am restricted by my family to not buy any Star Wars figures until my Birthday passes and that's September 4 and that's a long time. And Runobot congrats. Hey I got to run. Bye.

Happy birthday, Runobot! :)



Well, I'm up here in Pennsylvania, and the selection is only marginally better than down in Florida. I finally saw a JSP Obi-Wan, but no sign of Chewbacca, the new waves, or an Acklay. I still have some time to search tomorrow in Carlisle, but I'm probably going to come home empty-handed. Not that it matters, I'm having a great time (I even brought a bag of loose figures to decorate the car) :D

Good luck for now, and maybe I'll have an interesting story once I get back Wednesday. Well, maybe a little story. I checked out the Big Kmart in the Gallery at Market St (in good ol' Philly.) Original Saga price was $8.19, down to $5.99 now. It makes me a little more excited about small-town collecting, at least I'm not overpaying when I get lucky. :)

Can't wait to get home, Lak Sivrak should be waiting for me. Peace, chocolate, and be excellent to one another. :crazed:

Hi All!

I am on a new quest. I am currently looking for a vintage Kenner Lightsaber. These came out in the very early eighties towards SW's toy twilight back then. They were one piece, plastic, 3-4 feet long, came in red, green & blue(I think) and had vents in the tip to make saber noise... sort of. I've seen one on ebay but it was broken. I've attached a pic for identification purposes.

If anyone can help, I would be greatful!:D

08-14-2002, 08:48 AM
Vintage Kenner saber? UGH, man those things were horrible! I was so mad as a kid when I saw these terrible wiffle bats! Lightsaber my eye! Hmmmph!

The new wave of figures has dried up here. I never even saw the Ki Adi Mundi wave hit the shelves. target got in one shipping of their accessory sets but no new deluxe figures. I desperately want to get c-3po!

The pic shown above looks a heck of a lot better than the ones I saw in the 1970's in person. I remember them with striaght blades, no handle detail, and huge holes. Plus, they didn't light up.

be worth getting.

Lord Tenebrous
08-17-2002, 03:59 PM
The TRU here never got the new AT-ST, and it looks like it'll be the same story with the X-Wing and Landspeeder. Which is why I was surprised to find Vader/Padme/Anakin Unleashed there. But I'd rather spend that amount on an Acklay.


I can't wait for them to clearance their POTJ, I need a few more Duros and Mon Cal figures to customize.

Hi. Been a while since I writen in this forum. Well not alot to tell been studying hard in college. I've had bought few things of star wars like the hunt for aurra sing TPB, good story. and bought a pack of Sith Rising cards. Pretty good cards. Have not seen Acklay,nor unleashed figures. Still hoping to see Anakin (Tatooine) and Darth Maul. But until the local Wal Mart clears off the figures they have and they have alot, they will not put new ones until then, I did see the master of the universe figures they look cool no doubt. Well got to run.

DarthChuckMc
08-19-2002, 04:30 PM
Hey folks,
Haven't reported in a while, but haven't been anywhere to report until today. I made a trip down to Once Upon a Toy, and of course, EVERY Landspeeder and Cantina Alien figure was gone. So, being the nut that I am, I went to MGM. I paid $50, hauled booty inside to Tatooine Traders, and lo and behold, LANDSPEEDERS and CANTINA figures. The Landspeeders are $25. $5 more than TRU, but TRU doesn't even have them yet, and since I work 7am to 6pm, my chances of getting one there are slim to none. The Cantina figures are kinda lame. All the cards look like they were used as door stops. They are the same price as Wallyworld, which also doesn't have these yet. I'll buy them eventually, just holding out for decent cardbacks and bubbles.
The cool thing was, if you can get in and out of MGM before an hour passes, they'll refund your money, so I'm not completely out the $50 I spent to get in.
The new Wallyworld in Ocoee is a graveyard for Collection 1 and 2 waves 1 and 2. I went around 3am on Friday, and they had 9 cases on the floor. Out of the 9 cases, 1 was the Dooku/Yoda wave, and 1 was the Teemto/Ki-Adi wave. The Other 7 cases were all Jedi Obiwan/Han/Chewie. They put ALL of them out, so don't expect ANYTHING new there for a while. The overnight toy manager told me she had about 30 more cases coming, but they were just stock left over from the old Ocoee Walmart, and were all Col. 1 wave 1. So unless you need to stock up on Padme, Peasent Ani, or Jango, avoid that store for a couple of weeks.

On a more serious note, NOTHING new here. I haven't even seen Ki Adi of Teemto yet. No cantina guys or landspeeders either. I did see the TRU X-Wing, but I think it's waaaay too much moola. I did find the new Enterprise figures from Art Asylum. If you like Star Trek, you should really check them out. They used the Real Scan technology on them and they are very sweet. :D By for now.

Sorry I haven't posted in a few weeks, but it's been bare here. I haven't really been in the mood to search this past week, as one of my classmates from high school died. Through the viewing and the funeral, it just makes me feel vulnerable, him being 21 and to be hit that quick and that hard by illness.

But I leave for college in a week, and if I find anything new and groovy in the Tampa Bay area, I'll be sure to find quick and painless ways to help you all continue the hobby.

Here is toy update for everyone. I went to Sarasota and TRU had the new unleashed guys. Padme is the coolest one.;) Anakin is alright and Darth is also pretty awesome. I just couldn't pay $15 for them. Maybe next week. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the Action Fleet seets were exclusive to Target. I was in the Ft. Myers KB yesterday and they had them also. What's up wit' that? Oh well. Still no new dudes. I'm still waiting to see Ki and Teemto.:cool:

Over here in P.R. Teemto and Ki are all over the place in the Wal marts I have them both good toys no doubt.

08-25-2002, 01:57 PM
The Action Fleet 2-packs (Dewback, Ronto, Bantha, AT-ST) are Target exclusives, and that exclusive status makes Target the best place to find the ships as well. Walmart has space on the planogram for the vehicles, but they haven't shown up here yet.


From what I see, the next two waves of vehicles (N-1, Solar Sailer, AT-TE; AT-AT, Snowspeeder) won't need to be exclusives. AF is selling better than the deluxe line. But I do believe lists say another dozen entries for next year, so who knows by then...

I went to MGM again today..this time for free thanks to my sis-in-law :) Tatooine Trader @ the Star Tours ride still has plenty of the TRU exclusive X-wings and Landspeeders.

Oh ok. Run it was my bad. Well no new updates from over here in PR , the only new things I have seen are the Pewter toys, they are like metal in form of star wars character they had them for 16 it was cheaper then entertainment earth because with shipping is lot more. I am looking everywhere for the unleashed figures of Anakin,Darth Vader and Padme. A friend of mine found all three at a Gamestop but when I went they we're all sold out. I finally found an Acklay and finally I'm almost complete with my arena battle diorama only need the playset. If anyone need CCG cards or Ep 2 topps cards please let me know which ones you need I might have them. Okay. Well I am starting to round up my collection to take pictures of them to put in my site for people to see them. I hope my big sis finds Anakin (TA),Darth Maul and PAdme (CA) for me I really need those toys. Hey the clock is ticking my B-Day is coming up in about a week in a half on the 4 of september baby ELO was born believe it or not. I hope to atleast one of my relatives gets me a slave 1.

Lord T,

Sorry to hear about the death of your friend. Life has a way of waking us up to the reality of just how fragile it really is. This is why I try to treat everyone with respect and live my life by Jesus's example (OK, I know this isn't the Christian thread...)
I haven't posted in a while because I've been fairly busy and nothing new has surfaced here for SW stuff.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your friend's family. Reality has a way of smacking you in the face from time to time. I am truly sorry for your loss.


As far as SW toys, I haven't seen much except for a lot of Djas, Palpy, Han and Chewie. I'll keep an eye out for Teemto & KI, AT-AT Man.

Lord Tenebrous
08-26-2002, 09:54 PM
Thanks to you all. :) I saw his sister yesterday, and she's gaining strength and acceptance with each passing day. But still so full of love...


I'm going out early tomorrow to browse the aisles. I find myself wanting Darth Maul. Not just for the lightsaber and droid, but I want to put his legs on the custom Maul I have. Somehow.

And Sid, if you have anything else you're looking for, let me know, I might need you to rescue a Chewbacca for my collection.


My last few packages have been sent first-class, and they've looked great. So I'm going to halt with the Priority Mail. I'm not going to spend $4.30, when $0.40 gets a package from California to me in 3 days, ding-free. Pack it well, and save your money for another figure. :)

Runobot
08-27-2002, 03:04 PM
Saw the new Unleashed figures today, though some guy got the last of the Vaders. Anakin looks cool, and Padme is stacked. She looks more like a Tomb Raider figure than something from SW. I had to pass on them though. I think I will just get that Japanese Vader, I saw him at the Comic-con for $125, and he was the champ.

I'll keep looking, Sid. If nothing turns up this week, I'll just pay you and you can send it to my school box.

I just can't believe how popular Chewie and Obi (Pilot) are around here. Not a one for 50 miles north or south.

I saw one Obi while I was on vacation, along with a dozen Han figures. Obi's nice, but he doesn't really fit into my collection.

Hmmm...don't worry about Chewie quite yet, I'll take a survey of St. Pete first. For all I know, he's a pegwarmer over there and I won't stop seeing him for years. :stupid:


This hobby is getting too stressful. Maybe I'll just collect shells that look like Star Wars characters. Build a Death Star out of shark teeth. :crazed:

Hello all!

I went to Walmart this morning and was browsing the now extra small SW section (about 1/3 of the original full isle) when I saw a Palpatine ERROR figure! What a hoot! This guy has chicken pox! Anyway, when I went to check out I was told that I couldn't buy the figure. It would not ring up! After much talk with several employees I was told that these were not supposed to be on the shelves and that there was a sell date on SW stuff. I laughed and said, yeah, the date was April 23rd! No matter what I said, including showing these people a DATED store receipt for several figures that would now not scan could pursuade them! They would not sell me this figure! I told them the had better fix their system or they will lose a lot of business. Well, the manager called me tonight and said it was indeed a computer error and I went back and bought Palpatine!
I bought him and put him up on e-bay because I am not an error collector.
Here's the auction.

Be prepared to be called a scalper forever now.

DarthChuckMc
08-30-2002, 11:24 AM
From what I've seen on our little space on the web here, everyone, or almost everyone, has the Palpy figure. Trying to sell something on eBay doesn't make you a scalper, so long as you're not selling multiples of the same item. If Mace was selling 5 Palpy's a week, and everyone on here was screaming about not be able to find one, I'd agree with making him wear the scarlet letter, but selling one figure, that has an error, doesn't constitute a scalper in my eyes.
Run this may have been sarcasm, I'm not trying to be an a**hole, but some people, not necessarily on this board, but some people, take the typed word a little different than others.

Runobot
08-30-2002, 03:50 PM
I have done it before myself, I am just saying that in some peoples eyes he will be considered one, not mine. That is all

Hell, I sold 2 complete sets of the E2 figures 2 weeks before April 23rd. Now that is more worthy of the S letter!

Anyway I found the Cantina's. PM me for details.

Mace Windex
08-30-2002, 10:57 PM
A scalper (to me) is someone who buys up every single figure (or hot wheels car, etc) that is HTF and tries to re sell them. I have sold a lot of SW stuff on e-bay in the past (mainly Ep 1 days) but I have never cleared the shelves of any figs to resell. In fact, I think e-bay is a waste of time for the most part because there are always ten of the same item you have for sale and you can't make anything. Truth be told, I have used some of my e-bay sales to justify my collector habit.

And every week, I see the same horrible figures over and over again. Thank goodness I'll see a change of scenery soon (I hope). I'm so psyched for Ephant Mon, maybe I'll even see one in person...

Hey Sid. It's not bad, but I was a little dissapointed. The animation is cool, but the story is a little hokey. Plus all of the people look like "pokemon" people. I love Japanese Anime, just not mixed in w/ my Transformers cartoons. I guess I'm just stuck on the oldskool stuff. I also caught the new He-Man and let me tell ya, it really kicked butt. I can't wait to see the next episode. Oh yeah, also found the new Cantina sets today at the local Wally-World. They are pretty cool, but $10 is kinda steep. Hammer Head's Knees don't even bend. Oh well, still searching for new figs. The last ones I bought were Han and Chewie. Bye for now.:cool:

I'm here and moved in (twice, but that's a long story). I located all the major stores to go to, and I think I'll hit them up tomorrow and do a checklist. Probably won't buy anything, I've spent my extra money on a handle of Bacardi.

Actually, going through picture archives, the only one I really want is, of course, Ephant Mon. But I'll see what's out here.


I'm still wondering how Hasbro is doing quick-draw on Boba Fett, I reviewed it yesterday, and it's a quick, low, two-handed maneuver. All they'd really need to do is put a mechanism into Boba 300's arms. But the actual draw won't translate well, not how he does it - it's too clean and crisp for a limited action feature.


I'll shut up now and party. :) Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

My collecting is stalled for now. I know where 7-11 is (for fuel), I know where Publix is (for beer), but I can't find anything else. I keep on getting wrong directions and ending up in bad neighborhoods.

So I will probably need help in getting Ephant Mon (And maybe Lott...I'm really tempted). Unless I feel like taking a road tour of the 5 or so Targets in the Tampa Bay area. But refer back to Publix for a reason why not. :)


So for now I have Boba, Amanaman, and Tessek sitting on my computer, reminding me that one day they'll want company.

Hi!

Just got a UCS Yoda marked down to $20 because the box was badly damaged,and a $1 Anakin Speeder keychain.This was about it..too bad nothing else like the Collection 1 stuff wasnt on sale!..My store really needs to clearance them out.

I'll keep my eyes open for everyone,but at the moment I'm broke:(:(

I finally found a Gunship thanks to my super slueth skills, and a SKU #.
Has anyone found any Anakin Tatooine or Maul Training, or Jango and Clone Pilot figures? I don't personally need these, I just wasn't sure if they have made their debut here in our fine city.
Has anyone had a chance to make it to Once Upon a Toy to check out the 3 new Star Tours figures? I'm not sure if I'll be running down there to pick them up anytime soon. Since I buy 2 of each, I can't stand the thought of blowing $60+ on those when we have so much other stuff getting ready to hit the stores around here.
Here's a summery of my fantabulous toy run today.

Union Park Walmart: Nadda
Casselberry Walmart: Ditto
Altamonte TRU: again Nadda
Forest City Walmart: Plent o' Dooku and Dexter figures
Apopka Walmart: total crapfest
Mt. Dora Walmart: worse than Apopka
Sanford TRU: 1 Gunship on hold for another customer, at least I got to look at it :(
Sanford Walmart: Nothing special
Fashion Square TRU: Walked out when I saw a lady at the register buying 6 Marge and that french guy bowling 2 packs. Damn SCALPERS.
Merritt Island/Cocoa Beach Walmart: Ehh

So after a half tank of gas, and an 8 hour trip, I must say I am a bit disturbed by the amount, or lack there of, of decent toys filling the aisles of our grand haven.

Oh, all of the TRUs did have the 12" Luke & Tauntaun for you 12" figure fans.

Guys, I am getting rid of a lot of my collection that just sits in my closet. I would prefer to get cash for this stuff, but I MAY be interested to trade for stuff on my list. I am eventually going to put it on ebay, but I figured I would tell you all first. I have:

All the Legends in 3d busts (Greedo, Boba, Emperor, Tusken)
Gammorrean Guard Statue (never displayed)
Battle of Hoth Lithograph by Rolling Thunder (never displayed)
Jabba's Palace Lithograph by Rolling Thunder (never displayed)
Boba Fett: Fall of a Bounty Hunter Lithograph by Rolling Thunder (never displayed)
A bunch of SW aliens (loose)
A bunch of SW heros (loose)
POTF Jabba (loose)
POTF FX X-wing (MIB)
All the vintage 12 inch figures except IG-88 and C-3po (this is probably going on ebay, because of the value)
Most of the E1 cups and toppers from Pizza Hut/Taco Bell
A bunch of E1 trading cards
Some old SW Insider magazines

Just shoot me an email or pm with a fair offer and maybe we can work somethin out.

BTW: I have seen a bunch of the Target exclusives this week. Look around!

Cool Finds,AT-ATMan:D

Heres some proof that scaplers are in the Ocala/Gainsville area,from the "Florida Finds" club at GalaticHunter.Com


Orginally Posted by Gamorrean Jedi
Well right now I think were just not getting anything in the area, but yes there is a big scalper problem in this area there are 3 big time ebay scalpers in g'ville and they are known to have a range that covers ocala, cheifland and some other aeras north and south if you meet one in pitucular he's realy open about what he does and how much he makes doing it i have watched him quite literally clean off a shelf of all new figures with people complaining right behind him about leaving something for the rest of us but if I find anything I'll post it here and hope it helps some real collectors

Hey folks,
Haven't posted in a while, but I haven't been anywhere either :)
Anywho, I got my case from NewForceComics with Ephant Mon. I swear this figure weighs 5 lbs. The sculpt is awesome. The detail is just amazing. The hair, the wrinkles, the fabric...it's everything a Star Wars figure should be. The Vibro Blade is a nice touch. It fits in the cane, or on his belt.
Here's a quick review of the whole wave.

Tusken Raider with Massiff: Same as the POTJ Tusken with a little added paint. The Massiff is exactly the same all the way down to the leash. This isn't the Tusken we wanted, but I guess it will do until 2003.

Watto Mos Espa Junk Dealer: The sculpt and paint are great, but the motion capture wings are bleeh. The clear stand is nice, but he kinda wiggles around a little bit. We didn't NEED this one, buit if we didn't get it, we would've asked for it anyway.

Lott Dod: Looks great. The removable Miter isn't necessary but what the hey. The mini Sidious was added just to justify the price methinks. Another one we would've asked for eventually.

Rebel Soldier (no beard): Army builders are always welcome to me. I wish the 4 pack from the Fan club would've been these guys insead, with different hair color or something, instead of that POTF2 piece o' S. What can you do? Complain? Oh well, this figure is cool. Now if we could only get the Tantive IV and Imerial head resculpts.

The other figures in the case were a Teemto, Ki-Adi, and Massiff with Geonosian. Already had these, but a friend up in TN needed them, so those won't have to make the walk of shame back into Walmart ;)

Has anyone in Orlando found the new Deluxe Clonetrooper wave yet? I need 2 sets. If anyone finds them, shoot me a PM or email.

Later

Everyone,

Long time no see. My local TRU got in just about everything SW up to the new Clone pilots and gunship. Those clone pilots really look nice.
Speaking about costumes, I had been looking for a Mace Windu lightsaber and nobody in the area had bothered to order them. Isn't that strange? Eveyone had Anakin's and a few had Dooku's (pretty cheesy looking). Finally, I was at the mall the other day and ventured into Spencers. Behind a stack of Anakin sabers I found a single Mace saber. Very cool! This costume prop is very cool. If you collect sabers try to find this one. Not a bad buy for $9. I'll try to post a pic.

Hi all. I got a copy of the Big Book from TRU in the mail today. The silver R2-D2 promotion starts Sunday. I'm sure you all know the deal, but if you don't, hear ya go. If you buy $19.99 worth of SW toys, you get a free Silver Anniversary R2. It comes packaged like the Toy Fair Vader, and its FREE! Good luck to all. I know I'll be at TRU Sun. when the open.

Hello all,

It's funny watching you guys talk about He-Man. That show was on during my high school years. I still think the name (He-man) is utterly ridiculous. Honestly, I only watched because Skeletor reminded me of my favorite comic book character, Ghost Rider. Are they running a new HE-Man cartoon now? The figures sure look different than those from my days. BTW, I have seen all of the characters at my local Walmart.
On a Starwars note, I picked up the deluxe Clone Trooper w/ speeder bike. What a cool figure! My only real complaints are that the speeder doesn't stand level and the clone cannot hold onto both handlebars. That's it! He is very cool!

Run,

Check out this link:

It gives a little info but the pic doesn't tell the whole story. I'm not sure what the species is of the child in the middle.

Also, this thread may have more answers:

Hey amidalak, welcome to the club. I'm sure you'll like it here. Everyone is really cool and they'll help you out the best they can. I have seen the guys you need showing up at Wal-Mart and TRU. I haven't seen yoda yet though. Glad to have you aboard. Happy hunting.

Hi amidalak!:DWelcome to the insanity..er club;)

Anywho,Do any of you guys know where I can get some Simpsons figures?The only place I have seen
them is TRU,then they didnt have the ones I wanted.:(Maybe try online?But those normally come in cases(from what I've seen).

Run,no new MOTU figures here,just a bunch of He-Mans on the shelves.No SW figures either..then again,I havent been looking,I'm trying to avoid those Holiday shoppers.

Hi folks,
I haven't checked in in a while, but then again, I haven't been running around much. Welcome AmidalaK, you'll find out fast that people on this board can be a great source of information for our little area. Titusville ain't that far from me. I'm in east Orlando near Bonneville but not quite Bithlo :) I hit the Super Wally near I-95 whenever my deliveries take me over to that side of town. That's the first place I found the Gunship and the Acklay. I'm probably heading over there today since I'm off. Hopefullly the Trash Compactor sets are over there, 'cause they sure ain't here in O-Town. BTW, have any of you guys found more of the Deluxe Clonetrooper, flippin' Ani and Geonosian? I have one Clone deluxe, but that's it, and a friend found that for me. Going to work at 6am puts a damper on my toyruns, and going at 5pm is totally useless. Well folks, if I don't hear from ya'll soon, I'd just like to say Happy Holidays and such. Later.

1) I saw the new deluxes, probably about a month ago at Target.

2) I now have all the He-Man guys, thanks for looking out for me.

3) The tueken with mastiff is warming pegs around here in Orlando, isn't it?

Hey Run, did you order the MOTU Faker from Toyfare magazine? If not, you should pick up an issue and hope they are not sold out. They put a limit of 3 on them. I think they are gonna be pretty hard to get. Reminds me of the San Diego He-Man, which I don't have:( .

Hey IJG, Simpsons are warmin' the pegs over here. We have them at Target and TRU has them also. Which guys do you need? LMK and maybe I can help. Don't get ripped off ordering them on-line.

Any of you guys have any old GI Joe toys from the '80s that you want to get rid of? If so. please PM me. Thanks all.:D

Sorry for the double post:eek: Anyways,WM had the new Two Tower figures yesterday,they looked great.The only thing in the SW Selction was the first Anakin that came out the 23rd(April) and Jango FB.All the ships and most reeks were gone as well,I hope this means we will get new stuff on the pegs after Chirstmas:D
