RX-8....sweet ride....I am stuck with a econ friendly 2k5 CiviC LX 2dr Sp Ed. (custom rims, spoiler, 6 disc MP3 player). 30/36 mpg

Trying to save coin for more figures and I should have got the same car as the EX that was right next to it when I was deciding between both cars...(sunroof and DOHC engine 28 / 32 mpg) but then again I did get couple of speeding tickets in the old Odyssey minivan within 6 weeks a couple of years ago.

Other than that is has been dry except for a spare Chewie but once again no HOTH at the stores.

That's not too bad of a ride...but custom rims? That must have been some big coin there.

I've got stock rims for summer and I've got the old simple 5 spoke for the winter tires.

The 8 is my baby, and I jokingly call it the old metro on 'roids.

Val Da Car
01-18-2006, 10:45 PM
Here is a quick picture of one that is similar (no bra or moonroof) but the RIMS baby...the rims...plus the dealer agreed to Invoice.

I was trading in a 1991 Ponitac 2dr Gran Prx.

OH and mine is black.

Vortex

Pretty slick ride.

Those rims are nice...

I've got pix of the 8 on this forum don't have time to back track them, but they're on here.

What, couple of weeks and you'll be tricking out the jeep. Hell I got speeding tickets in the old metro...its possible.

Val Da Car

The Jeep has Clearance...Clarence.....

My Sister in Law has one and I understand the love for those devices.....ain't a car or a Truck so there!.

But I digress...back to SW collecting....hit 1 Target today and got a 500 pcs poker set for 14.98....might pick up a game or two, now.

Saw a Leia Boushh with an Amidala Holo...left it....got one already...but you never know.

2 stormies, I'll check. I probably don't have extra, but let me do some searching.

Val Da Car
01-21-2006, 09:01 AM
I still have about 4 to 6 spares...so if TJ can't help let me know.

I never got to open them and I have so many OTC Stormies that the VOTC are just a little too nice to open..

I did see the AT AT Driver, Bren, Veers, two R2's, Snowtroopers on the pegs.

Vortex
01-26-2006, 05:50 PM
I nabbed the hoth wave a few days ago. Like you, there were no Vaders or Power droids to be found. Only found one AT-AT driver and the pegs were semi-full.

I wonder what's up.

Rebo's_Guitarist
02-08-2006, 08:31 AM
Wandered into a KMart for the first time in a while and found 2 Tac Ops Troopers. Still waitin for the Geo wave.

Not only is my TRU closing, but so are the Sam Goody and Suncoast. Where the heck am I going to get my Bust-Ups now?!

Vortex
02-08-2006, 10:57 AM
Sorry to hear about that. I thought for sure that the stuff in duluth would stay open. There's not much up there or near there for shopping...

Well better start looking on line.

Its pretty slow down in the cities too.

Dry as a bone in the stores....

snow / rain / sleet on the streets.

Vortex

I was at Target and TRU on Sunday and there's power droids and bibs as far as the eye can see...ahhh the sweet winter smell of peg warmers.

Hit Target in the snow yesterday....it hit back with an empty peg!

Vortex
02-17-2006, 06:28 PM
Doah...that's the worst feeling ever.

I went to the Target HQ downtown here, and it was nothing but leia. They had two of the large titanium series (tri-droid and ARC fighter) but that's was it...outside of dust on the pegs.

Val Da Car
02-18-2006, 10:41 AM
A fellow collector just hit a Target in SE Wis and found the remnants of the wave....5 Poggels and 4 Yodas were the only new items on the shelfs.

Rebo's_Guitarist
02-19-2006, 08:25 AM
Everytime I check aroung here I am greated by the same old person...

"Dey wanna wunga"

"Hey Bib"

I think stores are holding out.

Although last time I was at Shopko the had tons of Vader and Luke FX sabers on clearance for 80 bucks, I might stop back and see whats left.

Val Da Car
02-19-2006, 11:08 AM
I stumbled into a another Target to find Poggle & Sun Fac and Boba fett from the Geo wave...got Sun Fac.....left considering ordering cases from EE at this point

Vortex
02-20-2006, 11:23 AM
Yup its getting time to hit up EE. I had to do that after all the movie years and the down times.

I remember many targets, walmarts and TRU's in the cities that didn't carry star wars after the movies disapeared from the theaters.

I used to split cases with a friend, but he's done collecting and I'm on a budget these days. Darn wife and her shoes...

Val Da Car
02-20-2006, 02:00 PM
Another Lunch at Target...

3 Poggles, 3 Sun Facs & 4 Yoda's.

Dang still no Scorches....maybe trades with ppl may work out...hopefully..

Rebo's_Guitarist
02-23-2006, 08:27 AM
Still havent found anything new, but I did buy my friend Ortolan a new house, he seems to dig it.
AL
I went in to my TRU and they are only open for 5 more days.....all thats left are about 30 Vader helmets but i did manage to get something else thats pretty good. The hanging aisle signs always caught my attention, I dont know why, but I asked one of the employees if the word magnets were for sale. She said "Man, thats desperate. You can have them if you can get them down....." After a quick boost I have two sweet new magnets. RIP TRU.

Oh yeah, I did get SW Trivial Pursuit on clearance for 12 bucks at Shopko.

Kidhuman
02-23-2006, 09:06 AM
Sweet. I always liked those signs.

Vortex
02-23-2006, 11:04 AM
Too funny. Should have asked for some pegs you can relive the hunt in the privacy of your own home. And saved yourself some time driving around by just having empty pegs in your room as a reminder.

Same here, I had two days off, and no car running, so I only found the same two, plus Yoda, and they were all gone by that afternoon. My toy department manager told me we have some more coming in, but didn't know which ones they would be.

Val Da Car
03-05-2006, 08:40 AM
I went the wrong direction....Stores to the North and South of me.

Went south in the morning to get my taxes and WM - empty and Target did have the new Die Cast wave of Titaniums.

Went South last night at 9pm and WM just had Geo left overs (C3p0, Poggle, Sun Fac) and Target only had the Naboo ship....

Oh Well...I only owe $94 in taxes so not bad...

03-05-2006, 08:38 PM
The only figure I'm missing is the one I most want Scorch...I know that commando was a big hit, but seriously...how many kids want to make their own Delta squad...

One day he will be mine...4 times over.

Where the hell is charging 10 bucks for figures?

Rebo's_Guitarist

The only place even CLOSE to a toy store in the Mall of America. TF's were 20, ROTS Unleashed were 25, DLX were 16, and I think GH were almost 9.

So lame.

Kidhuman
03-07-2006, 09:17 AM
I would say so. During EP1 I paid 10 bucks for the 4th Battle Droid variation because I couldnt find him anywhere. It was at a stand alone mom and pop toy store

Dude....If you want the Hoth R2, I will HOOK U UP!!!

I got one...and wasn't sure....heck I am not even sure about the Mail In Certificate figures ($15 at WM near work) but since they are the same (essentially) I will certainly toss it your way for all the hard work/trades you have done.

Vortex
03-07-2006, 12:40 PM
Rebo,

for those odd times you make it down to the cities or out toward the MOA. There's a TRU that's just west of the MOA. 494 and 35W right next to a comic shop and target. If you go a little more west you'll run into a wal-mart.

The TRU in roseville is gone, and the only source out there is Source Comics on Larpenture and Snelling (south of the mall) and Target. There's a comic/toy store near by to the north, but stay away from that place...too much $$$ for the new stuff.

next time you come down let me know and I'll give you more places to check out.

Rebo's_Guitarist
03-08-2006, 08:25 AM
VDC - Thanks, but I didnt really want it that bad. I just wanted something so I could say the day wasnt a complete waste. But it was. Oh well. Thanks though, I appreciate it!

Tj- I dont think I have ever found anything good down there, maybe once or twice. Everything is so bone dry its crazy. At least I got to take a trip back to my childhood and go down the Paul Bunyan Log Chute, hahaha.

Vortex

Bummer dude.

The Target in Eagan only has one peg left dedicated to the figs. The rest are unleashed, lightsabers and other crap.

Bib is left to guard everything, and that store is a dead peg on the vine...

Sorry you missed cody.

I think I'm going to have to start shopping on line.

Anyone heading to the comic con?

I probably won't make it to SDCC but if the figures show up at sws I am all on that like gritts & gravy

Rebo's_Guitarist
03-25-2006, 07:55 AM
Found one orange clone, Jango, and the Nemo Pilot. Surprised to find the clone. Im going to Target right now (8:00) to see if they actually got anything or if they just filled the empty pegs with more Galactic Heroes, again.

Also got my Early bird. All in all its decent, I was surpised they came in a similar white tray rathe rthan in boxes though.

Ill definitely need a SDCC trooper as well, I hope they are on SW.com.

Well..work has been insane-O...new director and finally after 6 months his method of management is out there for everyone to see. First week of only 40hrs but some days starting at 6am or ending at 5pm.

Which means no real chance to look for anything (except for the one day I left at 3pm and found only power droids at Walgreens) and found one Snowtrooper.

Well...maybe the months ahead will bring more figures to choose from.

well I just found the new grevious, nemo pilot, anakin, obi of the latest wave, but no cody and compay.

I did manage to get 4 commando's so one day I'll start painting up Delta squad.

Well I read the info on SirSteve jumping ship along with most of the crew here. Not sure if I'll jump ship with them or fade out into oblivion with this site, but if you guys are moving over I'll go too. But if not, its been a treat knowing you guys and maybe see ya on the flip side.

Got lucky at the Target HQ in downtown MLPS.

Went to lunch there today and snagged the few new figs. Also helps to have a friend who's something of a scalper do some footwork for you too.

Well I scope out both site and see how it goes...

As for the unloading...that sort of got put on hold with the house stuff, getting hitched...I sorted the stuff took and inventory and dished out a chunk to a local friend and his kid and the rest is still in tubs under the house in the crawl space...maybe one day I'll get it all sorted out.

I have 2 sets of vintage p.o.f. stickers waiting to be mailed out.

Its drier than a bone down here in the cities.

Cool snag with the cup. I think I still have a set or two of old 80's BK glasses at my folks house and those happy meal sticker books some place too. That plastic cup brought back some old memories.

TRU was a successful trip.

Gunships a plenty PM for some if you want and can't find any.

No date on the Hunt for Grevious set but I am in for some of us in the area.

In one night at WM I saw two different types of HW collectors, one was bad type, opening the HW boxes still on the pallet for the T-Hunt cars and the other guy asking permission with the stock person.

Both asked me which Unleashed were the "variants" or "Hot ones" and I said...neither...set of 3 different ones in a box that contained 9 Unleashed figures total. So they left the SW stuff alone but the nice guy found a SW H&V set and asked me if I wanted them. I Thanked him for finding the figures and once I saw that they were rehashes from Ep3, I passed on them.

But it was good to see nice collectors out there instead of all of the hatin' that goes on.....

That is what I missed the most about SSG being down, no harsh/rash judgements and nice people as a majority here instead of a minority at other forums.

:p

btw the H & V set has totally solidified me as an Army builder (within reason) instead a one of everything.

I've picked off a few of the new Tat wave...still missing luke, R5, and the sandtrooper. Also picked up the overly expensive clone gunship with war paint on it. Its pretty cool, but definitly not worth the 45 its beeing sold at TRU.

Still looking for the unleashed figures also.

Its friggen slow...

Saw renants of the Geo wave (including a Cody but no Scorch).

If you need an unleashed set I have the Shock and Han to trade or whatever. Picked up a spare set and when the HW dudes were nearby a few weeks ago and been to tired to get back to WM.

Saw a Target with no less that 20 of the Senate battle.

Maybe I'll army build those when they hit $10 but at $16 no way for shelf warmers

I am good with reimbursement or if you want to trade but I would hope for something newer (Mace Windu/Darth Vader Jedi Fighters or some of the upcoming Death Star Troopers).

In the timing of these arrivals it was just about 3 wks ago for wave 5 and the date stamp on the Wave 6 figures is 128 = 1st or 2nd week of April.

Does anyone think we may see wave 7 or reshipping of Waves 5 & 6.

Vortex
07-20-2006, 08:15 AM
Hmmm...hard call on that. If the years past non-movie trend is anything to guage on, I'd have to say no.

The store's HQ pre-order all the cases and then dole them out to the various neighborhood stores. If SW ain't selling good or was cools down quick, their aren't going to see anything. If its hot, yea the stuff we'll get move there, but I don't see Hasbro re-shipping any of these waves. Especially when we've got a few more assortments and special things coming out later this year.

Yea its been pretty quiet and ugly here in the cities. Targets and TRU have the few pegs flooded with greatest hits collection which is just turning into the greatest pegwarmer collection. There's a mess of R5-D4's, Hems, Hans, Lukes, Nemoidians, and junk on the pegs.

Its slow. I'm still waiting for luke's x-wing and the new walker to come out. My old walker, the chin gun lights never worked, and not to mention, I'd personally like another one.

Well the pegs are still pretty slim around here.

If you guys find or see any extra of the Mace's battle pack, grab two for me.

I have this bad feeling I won't be able to find this pack...given I haven't seen too many battle packs in the stores. There was a glut of the skirimish in the senate boxes, but even those are long gone.

I still haven't seen any extra death star gunners. I know I'd like a couple more myself, but that's a hard wave to track down.

Well on the Star Wars front, I haven't seen anything new. Everyone is still pushing those greatest hits or peg warmers. Nothings been showing up at the comic shops either from scalpers or back roomers. Its very slow.

Last night my folks were in a major car accident. A truck being driven with 5 highly probable illegal mexicans, rear ended my folks at a high speed, sent them from the right lane, across the left, onto the embankment, flipped them over, and on the roof. The 5 fled the accident on foot and left the truck.

Luckly everyone is ok, but last night was a long night. We had to the family dog to the U of M vet cetner for x-rays and check up. He needed a few stitches in his back leg.

I think the only "last of the vintage" figs I had was one of the ewoks, EV-9D9 and Lando General. My folks bought them for me at Feet Farm in Hudson WI a long time ago for an early xmas gift. Never seen them in any other store after that, and then poof they were gone.

I should try to finish off the vintage collection but my wallet can't afford some of those price tags for C-7's or 8's. I did snag a few from local comic shops, A-Wing pilot, Barada, Death Star Gunner, and maybe one or two more, but man, that get pricy.

Yeah no doubt, my next one will hopefully be a nice pop up R2, but Ill take whatever I can find next. But hey, its cheaper than MOC, which I have exactly zero of.

Vortex
12-01-2006, 02:39 PM
yea, if I had MOC vintage, I would have cashed those out years ago or when I bought the wedding and engagment ring. I had enough from my 95-2004 sales of current stuff to pay for the rings outright.

MOC is insane these days.

Bought my pop up R2 today....gonna have to hold off on any more of the last 17 for a while.

We seem to have everything a plenty up here, except for the Paploo speederbike Titanium, which I really want...sooner or later...

Anyone else starting to feel the Christmas noose tightening?

That was a short vintage break...

well you're doing good.

Rebo's_Guitarist
12-12-2006, 08:59 AM
Yeah I got those 2 plus another Luke Stormie for 150 shipped so its pretty good.

I think the only ones I need are:

EV-9D9
Dignitary
Amanaman
Romba
Paploo
Warok
Yak Face

Then I will have them all, but only about 1/2 are C9 complete, 1/4 C9 missing weapons, and the other 1/4 need to be replaced with C9 complete all together. Lots were from when I was younger. Still some work to do.

Havent seen anything new otherwise up here. Same old H&V bologna.

I hear ya about the old figs, mine were played with heavy and have seen a better day, but there's no way I'd replace them.

Got this bout 5 minutes ago:

Thanks for the auction and the fast payment. There was an accident last night. I was having my daughter bring the figure to package and my dog thought it was a toy and tripped her and the staff broke. I took it to work today and tried to repair it. I put a pin in it and glued it together but it is not a perfect repair. I can offer to refund all the money or I am sending you a picture of the staff now and if you are still interested you can make me an offer on it. I am really sorry about the ordeal. I have never had this happen before.

Thanks,




Well see what happens

Yea here's to a good star wars 07.

The year has started off pretty good, got most of the newest wave, only missing the blue stripy clone and I saw that the local target has all the tin sets at a little discount...might have to give in and buy them...still haven't seen the walmart band set.

Rebo's_Guitarist

Found the 3 comic packs, look pretty sweet. Still havent decided if I am going to get them, but probably.

Grabbed EV 9D9 last night, 3 more to go......

Vortex

Sweet you should take photos of the finished collection.

I see one of the comic packs, it was open and I didn't want to buy something with missing parts. I have a hunch these will be peg warmers later.

I bought 3 of the 7 tins. I have Ep. IV, V, VI and I'm still hunting down I, II, III and the band. My local wal-mart is relocating shelves and all the SW stuff is MIA.
