I picked up the Saga Rebel Fleet Trooper and Imperial Office at the Cherry Hill Target on Rt. 38 Yesterday. These are the first new figures I've seen since finally finding Ephant Mon. Our Wal-Marts are horrible.

Not much to report here. The only thing worthwhile mentioning is that both Middletown and Menlo Park Targets have their LOTR figures on clearance. They only have the Merry 2pack and Pipen 2 pack for 8.32$ each. The one in Menlo also has the repainted Aragorn figure for 4.88$.

I just picked up Eeth Koth and both the Anakin & Darth Tyranus speeders at the Target in Manalapan. Woo-hoo for me. Now all I need are Teebo and the Ackley Attack Obi-Wan and Darth Tyranus.

Mt Olive Wal Mart:
Severl tie bombers (they are $30 nnot $15). Lots of clone pilots, new Yodas, deluke Geonosians and a whole bunch of other old crap that I am sick and tired of seeing.....

Walmart's in Howell, Tom's River, and Brick seemed to all have the same thing. Each had a single Obi-Wan Ackley battle with card damage. What are the chances of that happening since none of those stores had anything last night? Don't tell me that there's not something going on there! I hate scalpers. Anyway, I picked up the least damaged of the bunch just to say that I at least accomplished something. The Howell Wal-mart has their 12" figures on sale for $10 each. I saw Dengar, Zuccus, Imp Officer, Super Battle Droid, etc...

If anyone is interested, I found 2 Ephant Mon's yesterday. One was at the Target in Manalapan, and the second was at the Wal-Mart in Howell. I left them for other collectors as I've got two already. The Wal-Mart also had the Padme Droid Factory Chase, Jedi Library Droid 2 Pack, and the New Tusking Raider figures as well. I'm still on the prowell for the Darth Tyrannus and Teebo. So if anybody could help me out I'd appreciate it.

You actually found something at the Howell WalMart!!!! You should play the lottery, you are on a lucky streak my friend!!! I absolutely HATE that WalMart. Its very shady, and almost never has any figures. Sucks because it is the closest WalMart. I have been taking the extra 10 Minutes and going to the one in Old Bridge. . . have things actually changed in Howell?!?!?!?

bkeddinger
03-29-2003, 08:26 AM
No, Thing's havent changed. I think that the local comic book store just got enough of the newer figures so the Wal-Mart stock person had nothing else to do with the figures but put them out on the racks for sale. Things will change soon enough when the New Target opens right across Rt. 9. Wal-Mart is already panicing with two equally laden shopping carts at the entrance comparing prices. $427 at Target compared to $407 at your Howell Wal-Mart. That breaks down to $5 for every $100 spent which I'd gladly pay for the cleanliness and organization of Target compared to the worst Wal-mart I've ever seen. Why they have to cram stocking pallets in any available space during business hours is beyond me. Don't they have a night shift? We'll soon see which is stronger, the power of Target to bring Wal-Mart up to spec, or the power of Lakewood to bring down Target, the way I believe it corrupted Wal-Mart.:frus:

So, I finally signed up with KEBco's one of every figure program. Unfortunately, my membership begins with the Solo Hoth wave. Now I still have to find the figures locally up to that wave, including the Boba Fett Carkoon wave and the Female Jedi Wave. At present, I figure, no pun intended, that I'm about 9 guys behind. I still haven't found Tyranus or Teebo yet. Anybody have any luck lately? :confused:

Most KB's in the central jersey area have some of the Two Pack Luke and Leia's & Han and Chewies for 4.99. Pretty good deal. Havent been able to find any of the Darth and Ben two packs though. Have seen at Quakerbridge, Brunswick Square and Bridgewater Commons. Will be checking Woodbridge today. The Easton Ave K Mart has the Slave one for 10.99. Saw about three there as of Wed.

MrMet
04-06-2003, 07:14 PM
No Ben and Vader 2 packs in woodbrigde mall KB either. Lots of the other 2 packs available though. Target Somerset and Menlo Park had a ton of Force power Yoda's and droid assembly lines

I stopped by my Wal-Mart in Howell this morning and picked up the Darth Tyranus I was missing. Of course, he was the only new figure and he had a slight crease on the lower right corner of the card. That fits the pattern of the the local comic shop/stock boy conspiracy of leaving only the damaged cards behind. Let's hope they come across a damaged Teebo so I can pick him up too.:frus:

bobafett07728
04-07-2003, 12:02 PM
LOL. . . I saw that Tyrannus last night, too. I needed him, but passed because of the fig's condition. The KB Outlet in Jackson had Deluxe Figures for $4.99 if anyone was interested in picking up some of those at a discount.

What the heck is going on at the Howell Wal-Mart. Yesterday morning I picked up a slightly damaged Darth Tyranus. He was the only new figure there. I stop by this morning, lo and behold there was an Obi-Wan Ackly Battle, with bubble damage, amist the slew of older figures. Are they getting shipments of one damaged figure per day? I'm still praying that they might get a damaged Teebo pretty soon so that I can pick him up!:mad:

bkeddinger
04-09-2003, 02:18 PM
Once again, I stopped by my Howell Wal-Mart this morning and actually found a case of Episode 2 Deluxe figures including the Speeder Bike Clone Trooper (x2). I've noticed that he's been kind of scarce from the reports on the message board, so I just wanted to let you folks know if anyone is interested. The case was near the Bicycles. Enjoy:p

FINALLY!!!! After all my persistence, I finally hit the motherload! I stopped by my Howell Wal-Mart this morning hoping that the person who cleaned out the glut of Clone pilots yesterday might have triggered a restock. Well, let me just tell you that the pegs were filled to the brim. I managed to pick up undamaged versions of Darth Tyranus and Obi-Wan Ackley, as well as R2-D2 Droid Factory Flight, Boba Fett Pit of Carkoon, Anakin Secret Ceremony, and Total Control Mace Windu. Not a bad haul. Luckily I was able to cancel my recent order from Yestertoys after finding them. Looks like all I need to find is a Teebo before my KEBco membership kicks into gear! Thank goodness. If anybody's interested, there were multiples of these figures, at most two of each still there this morning. Good Luck.:D

AHHHHHHHHH! How many left? How many left? I haven't found anything yet and I live in Hackettstown, but won't get home until 7pm. I might just have to send one of my winged monkeys to pick them up.

This is actually really surprising because hackettstown WM seemed to have the same figures out for almost 2 months now.

There was at least one of each of the ones that I listed above
the only ones that I saw more of were the Rebel trooper and the Imperial.

Yeah I was a bit surprised myself. . I got tired of looking at Padme , Pilot Jango and Destroyer droids myself.

by the way the Ephant Mon's were over in the model car aisle near the endcap closest to the rubbermaid bins. . the Yoda blades were right across from there.

Good luck, maybe if you buy what ever is there a restock will be triggered and something else might come up. I'll keep you in mind when I see something next time.

Looks like the Howell Wal-Mart restocked with Pilot Jango, Destroyer Droids, and Jedi Council Yodas following yesterday's new figures. I'm glad I picked them up when I did. It looks like we'll be in for another long wait to clear out these new/old peg warmers.:(

Nothing new in SW, but here's what i did find.

NO. Brunswick WM- They had 3 of the 12" Marvel Studios movie Daredevil

Old Bridge WM- They had gotten in a case of the new MOTU figures, but by the time I got there only 1 Sy-Klone was left

E. Brunswick KB- They had te new LOTR figures, but only 1 Sam, 1 King Theo and several Gollums.

E.Brunswick TRU- They had 1 each of the 12" Marvel Studios wolverine and Punisher, but no Blade or DD.

Thanks for saving me the trip to Rockaway

The TRU down in Woodbridge on Rt 1 has the same exact assortment nothing new just lots of the old stuff.

04-17-2003, 02:21 PM
Is anyody interested in Boba Fett Great pit of Carkoon, Secret Ceremony Anakin, R2-D2 Droid factory flight, and Total Control Mace Windu? I know this isn't the right place for this sort of thing, but I'd like to make a sale or trade local to NJ, and well, this is the NJ place. Yestertoys screwed me over. I ordered these figures from them on Wednesday, found them at Wal-mart on Thursday, cancelled the order Thursday afternoon, and they sent me the figures anyway. I'd like to recoup my losses somehow, and unless someone is interested, I'll just end up returning them to Wal-mart and take a hit on the price. Let me know and please forgive the intrusion.

Just found in Target near Hamilton Mall (Mays Landing?)
new Obi Wan, R2, Mace, Solo, Fett, and Chewie.
There were more R2, Fett, and Chewie.

MrMet
05-02-2003, 05:03 PM
Well I picked up Obi Wan Ackley at the North Brunswick Wallmart so i guess this new wave does exist. He was the only new figure there and only one on the peg.

buchananRC96
05-05-2003, 10:57 AM
Picked up
1) Obi-wan Acklay
2) Stick in My Back Mace
3) Soap on a Rope R2

At the Hackettstown Walmart. only one of each of the above. . about the only thing that proves is that them must have some of the new cases in the stock room

Only thing there now is a ton of the same stuff that's been there for months

5/4/03

TRU Parsippany---Nothing
TRU Totawa----Nothing
KB Wayne----Tons, but all old stuff (Tortured Souls figures are on sale for $4.99)

And I picked up the new Han & Chewie at the Hackettstown WM on Saturday, so they are in the area.

MrMet
05-05-2003, 07:33 PM
Still nothing new in SW down here in Middlesex county. Its not just this area though. I work in Manhatten and have found nothing new at the Times Square TRU, Union Square TRU or the Herald Square KB. Also checked the Penn Station KMart with no luck either. Makes me want to buy all these peg warmers so they start restocking the shelf.

bkeddinger
05-17-2003, 01:32 PM
Wal-Mart in Howell had the Total Control Mace, Droid Factory R2-D2, Darth Tyranus, Obi-Wan Ackley battle, and the Secret Ceremony Anakin. No sign of Boba Fett Carkoon, but they must hav been there this morning. Good luck. Anybody know where I can pick up a Teebo? He's been out for about six months now and I've only seen him in overpriced comic shops.

Question for Jerseyites. I did a lot of shopping last December and was able to find just about everything that was purportedly out. However, I didn't look very much after that until I started up a week or so ago. In those intervening months, did I actually miss the new releases which currently aren't showing up on the local pegs (Middlesex County), or did they never show up at all in our area (at least to any large extent)?

smurfvader
05-20-2003, 03:10 PM
They didn't show up to any large extent. I've found them so far at the WM in Old Bridge, N. Brunswick and Howell and the Target in Manalapan, other than that I haven't seem them in any other store.

JIm

Dar Basra
05-20-2003, 05:13 PM
Thanks. Never been down to the Howell. Usually hit either the N. Brunswick or Princeton WMs. I guess I should add the Old Bridge to my routine checks, but Howell's probably too far to convince my better half it's worth the trek.

SNAYSON

ATTENTION! ATTENTION ALL NJ STAR WARS COLLECTORS!

ANYONE WHO LIVES NEAR NYC...TIMES SQUARE TRU AS A TON OF ELPHANT MON ON THE PEGS!

I GOT TWO LAST FRIDAY!!!!!

FINALLY, I HAVE THIS AWESOME FIGURE!

Dar Basra
05-20-2003, 05:20 PM
Do they have anything else of merit?

I happen to already have an Ephant (like I said ... I was very lucky last December and found lots of stuff), and don't think I really need another.

Dar Basra
05-22-2003, 10:44 AM
The East Brunswick TRU had a few X-Wings at full price, which I hadn't seen in a while, and hadn't picked up myself before. Still, I left them on the shelf. Does anyone know whether these ever got discounted before? Or am I better off paying full, because they might never show up again?

SNAYSON
05-22-2003, 03:46 PM
i never saw them discounted. someone might have but i never did. i bought one cause it is a great peice of work. (also just in case i don't see them again)
same as the FX xwing but w/o the electronics. a more accurate peice in terms of correctness compared to the first version.

buchananRC96
05-22-2003, 07:59 PM
I hit the Targets Stores in Menlo Park and over in Bridgewater
found the following Deluxe figures at both stores:

Spider Droid with Rotating Turret and Firing Cannon
Super Battle Droid Builder

nice to see some new things hitting the shelves.

One Question: Anyone in Jersey see the Trash Compactor Scenes at an walmart in Jersey? I've yet to see one

Dar Basra
05-22-2003, 08:53 PM
Alright, so I went back to TRU East Brunswick and picked up an x-Wing. Expensive bugger, but my son (and his father) is worth it.

For those of you that collect the 12" line, they had several old boxes of POTF Chewbacca Over 13", if you're interested ($19.99). They also still had several of the Silver Anniversary 2 packs (Obi/Darth, at least - didn't look to see if they had the others).

Went round to the E. Brunswick Mall KB. Still have a few of the Saga Deluxes, now down to $5.99. They also had several of the 12" Ep. 1 Royal Elegance Queen Amidala. Though I don't collect 12" normally, I picked up one for my 2 week old daughter. She might want it someday! Of course, now I'll have to hunt down the others from the Queen Amidala Collection ...

I stopped in at the OB Wal-Mart yesterday and picked up 2 Boba Fetts.

I know Manhattan isn't NJ, but since many of us NJ-ites work or visit there, and since there isn't a NYC Just Found thread ...

I went back to the Times Square TRU last Wednesday, and all the Ephants were gone. They had restocked the entire display with more Lott Dods, Jango Pilots and Wattos, and given how many Ephants were there the Friday previously, I wonder whether TRU removed them, or whether they were actually sold.

More importantly for me, however, was finding several Sneak Preview Clone Troopers! Full price, but now I finally have some plain white ones. I picked up 4 myself, and there were a few more when I left on the highest pegs. Hope they found a happy home.

Nice Bosra, I havent been to the times square store in a few weeks. Went to the Union Square store on thursday and they had not much of anything. The had the Leia deluxe Jabbas prisoner for 5.99 thats about it. As far as here in jersey, the North Brunswick Walmart has been stocking the new wave, but by the time i get there all i can find is soap on a rope R2, Obi Ackley and Mace. None of the others!

Imperial Forces 4-pack found at the East Brunswick TRU this evening. There were still a few left after I got mine, but considering that the guy in front of me at the check-out line also had one, there's a good chance they'll be gone quickly. (If you're into 12", there was also an older Leia dressed in the Jabba's prisoner outfit ... I thought about getting that for my daughter, but passed - she's just shy of a month old, so I still have time). PS - Out of curiosity, are any of you the guy that was ahead of me in TRU? You had a young blond lady with you?

Jordashebasics
06-07-2003, 04:56 PM
Forgot to mention...the TRU in Eatontown has Imperial Forces set as well, but still hasn't gotten even the destroyer droid/high council yodas yet. I like the Forces pack...the droid is great.
But the AT-ST Driver has a very weak elbow joint...the lower part will pop right off.
Vader's head feels a little rubbery when moved side to side, and the stormtrooper isn't terrible, but it could be better...maybe a little closer to the ones used in the troop builder sets.

Found the Imperial Forces At the Rockaway TRU last night, quite a few of them were there.

Not sure how I feel about a bunch of reissues however, The AT-ST driver is nice though and I'm a sucker for the repaint on the droid. I'm going to have to think about if I want to spend the $20 on it however. and I wonder if the only reason I'm even thinking about it is because I haven't really come across any of the other new figures.

And as an aside I think that Hasbro/TRU Could have gotten a lot better assortment together. . .Imagine a Royal Starship Repair droid set, four R2 Units different colors; maybe a reissue of R2-B1 a figure that was pretty hard to find . . oh wait hardly anybody bought the Starship and that would require Hasbro using at least a couple of different colors rather then an all black repaint of a droid. . I guess a guy could dream

MrMet
06-13-2003, 07:31 PM
i went to TRU on sunday and felt the same way. 20.00 was a little much for the set. I think i will gamble and wait a few months and try to get it for 10.00 or less. I was able to score the anniversary issue 2 packs for 5 dollars a piece instead of the 20.00 they were originally going for when first released

06-19-2003, 04:21 PM
I stopped in at the Old Bridge Wal-Mart on Tuesday night and found the new MOTU figures of Buzz off and Man E Faces. I stopped by again today and found a few of the new SW figures. Thety had 1 each of the following: Throne room Vader, Throne room Luke, Tatooine Ambush C-3PO, Kamino Escape Jango, Hoth Han and Mynock Chewie.

Found a bunch of the Endor accessory sets at the Target in Somerset. Pretty cool accessorys and also the Biker Scout thats always been a tuff to get a hold of. Nothing from either of the last two waves though as far as single figures. The same Peg warmers that have been on the shelves for 6+months

Jordashebasics
06-22-2003, 04:54 PM
I picked up the 12 inch Guard at the KB in the Livingston Mall, up by Morristown. It's not too bad...very detailed, standard articulation for a 12 incher. Excellent for display purposes. If this has shown up here, I think most of the KBs in Jersey have got it now.

MrMet
06-25-2003, 07:59 PM
No new figs anywhere down here in middlesex county. Was at Brunswick Square mall monday to preorder Galaxies. Stopped in at KB. Nothing new there and no Gammorean Guards!

Jordashebasics
06-25-2003, 10:51 PM
Another find - TRU in Eatontown. After about 6 months of no new figures there, save the Imperial Forces pack and 12 inchers, they had some of these new Clone Wars packs. I picked up the 3 Clones and the Destroyer Droid Launcher, but left a few behind, as well as the 3 pack of droids.
I know this isn't the place for a review, but I warn everyone - the Clones have very little articulation. Heads, shoulders, waist. Nothing in the leg area. And the weapons are molded into the hands. The standing Destroyer Droid is made of some pretty cheap plastic, has very limited articulation (including the 3 legs, there are about 5 points.)
And at Target in Ocean Township...I saw a Red Battle Droid. Package was pretty badly damaged, and I didn't pick it up. But it looks like they got a shipment of this stuff at least!

bkeddinger
06-28-2003, 02:25 PM
I also picked up 2 of the 3 Clone Wars "Deluxe" sets in the Eatontown TRU. It was the Clone Trooper and Battle Droid three packs for me. That dumb looking Destroyer Droid Launcher can sit and rot on the shelves for all I care. The new packaging is very nice though! Good luck.

Eatontown TRU has the three-packs again. Last I saw, only the 3 pack of Battle Droids and the Destroyer Droid launcher set. They also had both the new Jedi Starfighter and the AAT. AAT was priced around 21 and change...
Target in East Hanover has the Super Battledroid builders too.
Comics Plus on 35 in Ocean (just south of Monmouth Mall a bit) has some good stuff - a whole lot more loose/used figures, 1.99 apiece. Since I haven't been collecting long, I picked up a Probot, Aunt Beru, etc. There were plenty of storm troopers though.

bkeddinger

Wal-mart in Howell had both the Han Hoth and Mynock Hunt Chewie yesterday. They had two of each in pretty good shape. I'm really glad I gave in to the Kebco "One of every figure club". Thanks to them, I had these two figures more than a month ago.

Also, Collingswood Flea Market had a vendor who had tons of Episode One Figures and ships. Naboo Royal guard was probably the most interesting. They also had two Naboo Royal Starships. When I questioned the vendor as to the prices of things, he ratherly rudely stated that all the Star Wars stuff was already sold. What the heck is that all about? Why did he have it out if it was already sold. I wasn't the only one interested and ultimately disappointed by his response. What a jackarse!

PS. It looked like he had raided Bradlee's stockroom as the majority of stuff had their price stickers still on them. :cry:

Checked a few places today -
Walmart in Old Bridge - there was a R2 factory flight, Boba Fett and Han Hoth on the rack when I left, and the new packaging of Jango Kamino.
I picked up a new 3P0 there.
Target in Middletown - a good score. I left an Ashla/Jempa on the rack, but they finally got the clone wars three packs. I found Aayla, Barris, Wat Tambor, Lama Su/Clone Youth, all of which I needed.
Checked TRU in Hazlet, nothing really new. It looks like they finally got the 3-packs as well though.

A strange find at the KB in Shrewsbury-
They had the AAT, new Jedi Starfighter, one launcher 3 pack, but there's a new thing on the shelves-
three figures and a lightsaber. I think it was going for 19.99.
Each pack had Dooku, Yoda and a red clone, and the lightsaber was one of these long package ones.

Found a couple of the Gold Border Saga Figures in the KAY-Bees in the Woodbridge mall
*Coleman Trebor
*Wedding Padme
*Wat Tambor
*Wrong Hand Luke (Throne Room Duel)
*Scrubbing Bubble SnowTrooper
*Play-it-again Darth Maul (Theed hangar Duel)
Even more interesting I thought were the Saga Figures that I've been looking for (which just goes to show how much stock pegwarmer Maul Apprentice, Teemeto, Tatooine Anakin , and Coruscant Padme has been Holding back):
*Ashla and Jempa
*Chian and Yoda
*Baris Offee

Saw all four Clone War troop builder sets at TRU in Woodbridge:
*Blue Trooper with the clones :)
*Finally saw the Jedi pack (how hard would it have been to put these guys in a neutral pose with minimum articulation , come on! looks like only the droids were done right to stand)

And the Best Find That I managed to get was at the Target at Menlo
*Jedi High Council (part 1)
*Geonosis War room (part 1)

Had a couple left and and at 20 bucks a scene, a pretty expensive buy : :stupid: . I'd have perferred to wait until they went on clearence or something but since you never know how much these stores ordered or if it is ever going to be out again had to pick them up: :cry:

The figures all look good . . .not crazy about the packaging odd size and can't really display with the background like the old Scene Packages but I'm happy to see these type of set out in the stores again. :D and lastly I urge everyone to get it because I want part 2 to both of these sets

I just found the Jedi Army 3 pack as well as 2 of the green Clone Trooper packs at the KB Toys in the Ocean County Mall. They were $14.99 each so I just picked up the Jedi set. The KB in the Freehold mall had two Clone Wars Anakin and a single Clone Wars Yoda. Unfortunately that weren't included in the $1.99 sale so I didn't bother. They'll turn up sooner or later at TRU or Target for $1 cheaper.

Also, my wife suprised me with the Imperial Shuttle for my Birthday. It came extremely well packed and the box is in Mint condition. She managed to pick it up from KB's website using a 20% off coupon. I'm so glad that I didn't shell out the big bucks (Relatively speeking) for FAO's "EXLCUSIVE" shuttle. KB saved me about $50 on that bad boy. Thanks honey! :happy:

It looks like the Wal-marts in Brick and Howell had received their Clone Wars 2 -packs on Friday morning. I unfortunately got there too late and they were completely cleaned out. All that was left was the end-cap display. I stopped by the Comic Book store in Howell and it looks as if my old nemesis was the one that cleaned them out. They had plenty of the 2-packs selling for $13 each. Now that's a pretty nice mark-up! Oh, well, guess I'll wait.

The TRU in Freehold had the Hoth adventure 4-pack (the nicest of the bunch IMO). Still, with the way their hanging around, I'll wait for some sort of clearance.

I also picked up the ROTJ Luke Jedi from the Target in Freehold. Pretty nice figure if you keepthem MOC like I do.

Geonosis War Room p2 of 2

Clone Wars Figures too
Rambo Yoda/ with flying frisbee chair
Anakin
ARC Trooper

And the vehicles
Repulic Gunship (Redeco)
Jedi Starfighter (redeco)
AAT

Just to Chat I was over in London and Paris last week and I saw every single wave and character that I can't seem to find over here (sure they all have a giant sticker in a half dozen languages covering the back of the packaging)
put it was a pleasure to actually see the Trash Compactor Scenes, It was nice to actually see more then one of Total control Mace, to actually see the Padawans. and I swear if the dollar wasn't so bad against the pound sterling and the Euro I would've had a suitcase of those figures

I miss being able to go to the stores and looking around a little bit and thinking about what I might spend the some of my next paycheck on. anytime I see anthing anymore I feel like I have to buy it now because there is a good chance I won't see it again.

On top of finding PA's largest pumpkin, we also managed to find the Walmart Clone Wars two packs that are extremely difficult to find in my area (Howell, NJ). They're pretty nice (Great Value) but I was a little disappointed at the card backs. They don't even have the character bios on the back.

This was very interesting to me, being that this is a new store that opened during the POTJ days (maybe even later.) Someone must have just returned them, and got some store credit. They aren't very "valuable" pieces, so maybe they just wanted to get some new stuff, and didn't know of another way to get rid of them. Way back when I worked at a TRU, we would get older stuff returned during the xmas shopping craze. In December 97, I scored a Orange Card LS Ben, Boba Fett Half-Circles, and a couple more common Orange Card figs. They were all returned, and happend to end up in my re-shop cart. They were full price, but that was much less than market value at the time. I got a tan-vested Luke the same way, a different time. Sometimes you never know what you'll find at the stores.

All of the basic stores are easy to get to in a single trip in this area-
first, continuing from where I left off last time-
you go up black horse pike, moving over to the second-to-left lane. After three or four lights, there is an exit lane to turn into a Wal-mart parking lot. If you go in the direction the Wal-mart is facing, you can reach the TRU. If you cross Black Horse Pike directly across from the TRU, you can reach the Hamilton Mall, which has a KB on the lower level. If you exit the Mall from the side perpendicular to Black Horse Pike - the road you initially came in on, and turn left out of there, there is a shopping plaza on the right, which has a Target there. From there, you can follow the directions you took from the parkway to this area without any difficulty. The Parkway North entrance is just past where you exited parkway south.
If you'd like further clairfication...go for it.

Stopped at the Toys R Us in Eatontown this morning (10:30) on the way to work. They had the new Padme Ceremony assortment. I already preordered this case, so I left them all there. Padme, Aayla, Bariss, Yoda & Chain, Ashla & Jempa. . . it looked as if no one had touched them yet. If you are looking for these. . . this may be a place to stop. They also got in three cases of the Clone Wars Deluxe. I needed a Jedi 3-Pack, and a Clone Trooper 3-Pack, so I was pretty psyched!!! All of the Clone Trooper packs had a yellow trooper, and two standard. . . also came with a warning sticker on the top right. These should also be there if anyone is looking. They had some of the newer vehicles, too, but I wasn't interested inthem, and didn't take a good look. What was interesting, though, is that the Hasbro guy was there, and he told me some interesting things. He told me that the Deluxe cases he put out were no longer shipping, and that I was lucky to get them. Hasbro is only shipping the Durge assortment now. He also said that he used to be able to get his new figures straight from Hasbro, but has resorted to pre-ordering them on e-tailers, as I told him I'd been doing. WOW, distribution is so poor that Hasbro employees can't get the new figures. . . this surprised me. Anyway, this Toys R Us should be a good place to stop if you are in the hunting mood today.

If anyone REALLY wants any of the figures I mentioned, I can try to stop by after work (6:00.) Maybe we can work out a trade of somesort. Happy Hunting!!!!

Ahhhhh... So you've also whitnessed the migration of Wal-Mart's Star Wars figures to that wretched Comic Store! It's a nice store, but I wish they'd get their supply from some other source and leave Wal-Mart's figures alone. It's particularly bad when there's a Wal-Mart exclusive (i.e. Clone Wars 2 packs). Wal-Mart's Price - $4.77, Comic Store's Price - $15.00. And yep, they bought every single one of those 2 packs (1st and only shipment). :mad:

I'm thinking that the red ARC troopers might be unwanted since I think that they're shipping with the second wave of clone wars figure (Mace, Obi, etc...) which were nowhere to be found (i.e. comic store).

Last night's Clone Wars episode made me really happy that I picked up that Red ARC Trooper. He really kicks butt! :D

That Comic Store has been notorious for plundering that WalMart for a LONG time now. I was so excited to hear that a new Target was opening up, and then I realized that it would also fall to the same fate. Its unforunate, but its also a LARGE part of the collecting hobby. I try not to let it get to me, but when I go to WalMart / Target looking for some exclusive Star Wars merchandise I never find it. But, if I stop into the comic store, they have a plentiful supply, at an impressive markup. Even though they are two of my local stores, I usually drive to other Targets/WalMarts cause I feel I have a better chance of finding something I want.


Last night's Clone Wars episode made me really happy that I picked up that Red ARC Trooper. He really kicks butt!

AMEN!!! Made me wish I had him, and wish he came with two blasters, instead of that blaster rifle. He was really "John Wayne"ing it with those two blasters last night. . . friggin' awesome!!!!!

BTW. . . have you been to the Manalapan Target in the past couple weeks? Is it me, or does it seem like someone unloaded a bunch of $1.99 KB figures there? The pegs were empty. . .

They also had about 6 of the Anakin Jedi Starfighters. Good luck if you're in the area.

For some reason I had trouble logging on yesterday. Here's what I found yesterday:
WM Linden- They had the following figures
Clone Wars: Durge, Obi-Wan, Asajji, mace
saga: Elian, Imp. Dig (I don't know which one), concept Trooper, Ayy Vida, Emperor and Bail Organa.
They also had the new Marvel Legends minus Skull and Blade.

Today: WM in Old bridge - Nothing in the way of Star Wars, but they do have the new ML series 5 minus Skull and Blade.

Stopped by the Eatontown TRU on the way to work (10:00 am.) They had just put out a case of the new Ultra figures. I picked up a set for myself and left the rest. I believe there was at least on of each left. . . I didn't check though. Nothing else as far as new figures, vehicles, etc. They also had a Han Solo Unleashed, and the Jedi Luke Unleashed Wave. I don't collect the Unleashed, so I wasn't sure which was good, or what. . . they should all be there for a little while, at least. Happy Hunting!!!!!!

I just picked up the new Ultra Figures from the TRU in Eatontown as well. They are fantastic! I'm looking forward to more of this wave in the near future. On another note, the new Target in Howell has a few of their exclusive A-wings on the shelf. Selling price for these are $19.99 each. They're rather nice and come in a smart looking window package.

Good luck!

I just stopped there as well, and picked up the Deluxe Durge. It seems like Wednesday is a good day to stop at this TRU. The Hasbro representative is there, and he makes a good effort to get the newest SW stuff out. Three straight weeks, I've gotten something there on the way to work. . . it doesn't get more convenient than that! Happy Hunting!!!!

Just picked up General Riekan and C-3PO with escape pod from the Old Bridge Walmart - no Wampa :mad: :mad: Hoping to find one soon.
Also picked up a very damaged Saga Hoth Luke from the Target in Milltown. Around Thanksgiving I picked up both the new Clone Trooper and Speeder Bike as well as Durge and Speeder at Suncoast Video in East Brunswick Mall.:D :D

One Saturday the Old Bridge Walmart had a couple of Hoth Luke's, three R-3PO's and about four Hoth Soliders, and the variant Han Solo with Brown Hoth coat as well as several re-issures on the saga gold cards. :) :) :) Christmas has come early.

Surprising find today at TRU in Hazlet-
On the pegs, plenty of unleashed Yoda and Han.
Not with the SW display, but - when facing the SW display, turn around. There's an island that you'll be facing. On the side of that, there are some SW things on pegs. I found a few clone army with green troops, there was at least one jedi army as well.
In the storage space above the SW display, there was a case of POTJ figures - BoShek, Teebo, R4-M9.
Nothing at Target in Middletown - they've mostly just had the deluxe figures warming the pegs, tons of lightsabers, the cinema scenes, but no basic figures. They have gotten a few shipments of the animated figures though, but those have been selling well.

I've been working on clearing up the KRU stores that are closing, so over the past couple days, I've checked TRUs in Lawrenceville on route 1, East Brunswick, and Freehold.
East Brunswick had tons of Elors (fan choice #1) as well as the normal stuff. One damaged Obi Wan nightclub on the rack.
Freehold had nothing of interest.
Neither did Lawrenceville.
But TRU in Eatontown had some newer stuff as of Wednesday morning - I saw one unleashed Yoda and Boba Fett.
I've also seen the 12 inch Lando/Han/AT-ST driver at most of these places.

I hit the Motherload at two Wal-Mart's this past Friday. I nabbed a total of 8 new figures from the Captain Antilles/Jabba's Palace wave. On top of that I also found the Ultimate Jabba the Hutt and Court Dinesens(sp) figures. The new Wal-Mart on Rt 66 in Ocean really has been doing alright in my book. Good luck. :)

Target in Middletown - very, very little. 3 ultra reekins, 1 ultra 3PO. Several cinema scenes (mostly the first wave). Two animated Dooku. A couple gunships and geonosian fighters.

TRU in Hazlet - They've more recently opened up a few cases of BoShek, Teebo, and R4-M9. There are also some Zuttons and Queen Amidala's mixed in. There was one gold card on the rack - a Padme Wedding. The rest were pegwarmers from 2002 (Dexter, teemto, etc) Plenty of Gunships. There was at least one unleashed Boba Fett, and one unleashed Sideous, among a few Padme and Anakins.
K-Mart (right across the street from the TRU in Hazlet) - an excellent find. They had almost exclusively gold cards. Mostly hall-of-fame. There was Vader death star clash, Stormtrooper death star chase, C-3PO - Death Star Rescue, Yoda - Geonosis, Hall of fame Chewie....HOF R2...
There were about 2 of each.
2 Deluxe Durge, 2 deluxe clones with speeder bike (clone wars version) 2 clone trooper builder packs (just white)

Thanks for the heads-up on these figures. I made a run up that way yesterday, but was unfortunately too late. I was only looking for the HOF Vader as he is the only non-previously carded figure in that line. On my way back home, I stopped by the K-Mart in Eatontown/Long Branch. To my suprise, I found my very own Vader sitting right there in the rack (Last one). The card had a bad bend/crease in the upper right corner, but I picked it up anyway. Maybe I can do a little damage control with the card.

Thanks again!

PS. I'd also like to pick up the HOF C-3PO, but can't seem to find him anywhere. Any guesses?

Jordashebasics
02-23-2004, 05:39 PM
Target in Middletown - Very little. Two deluxe generals, one deluxe 3PO. About 4 or 5 each of Dooku and Durge animated. About 3 Clone Wars Jedi Starfighters, one Geonosian Fighter.
About 5 or so lightsabers. About 6 of the cinema scenes.

TRU in Hazlet - They got a couple cases of gold cards! Mostly Yoda/Chian, Ashla/Jempa, Imperial Dignitaries, a few Ack-med Beqs. 3 Han Unleashed. About 3 or 4 of each of the Deluxe General/3PO, 1 deluxe Wampa. One Droid Army builder. One deluxe Yoda w/Super Battle Droid. (Prices down to 6.98, I think) A handful of Aayla and Barris Offee, on gold cards.

Kmart in Hazlet - Still some of the gold card repacks. Yoda, Han, Leia (Captive) 3 Durge w/speeder bike, a few clones with speeder bike. The only thing that was new to my eyes was the Luke Tatooine mission (I think that's it)

Jordashebasics
03-01-2004, 04:28 PM
TRU in Eatontown - Plenty of Boba Fett PoCs, several brown coat Han Hoth, several Luke Throne Room, Vader Throne, and Snowtroopers. A couple Anakin Secret Ceremony. 4 of each of this wave of unleashed - 4 Lukes, 4 Chewie, 4 Clones. 4 Han Unleashed as well.

Kmart in West Long Branch - two small displays on opposite sides of the same isle. There was one deluxe durge, one gold card Chewie, gold card Anakin Hangar Duel, gold card Leia, Han, Yoda.

KB in Shrewsbury Plaza - Nothing new, but I don't think I've reported on it before. Plenty of Padme weddings. One Yoda/Chian, one Wat Tambor. Two or three Aayla Secura. Tons of 2002 basic figures. Noteworthy - the Padmes, previously selling for 6.99, are marked down to 2.99 now. Same with Aayla and the other newer ones.
There were two Hoth Troopers - except they were on horrible cards. After a little examination, I found that neither was the correct figure. One was the Hoth Trooper that came with the target accessory set, the other one is a hoth trooper with the goggles down over his eyes. Both had clearly been returned, as their blaster accessories were missing, and the bubble had been stapled back down. (Those were still marked up at 6.99)

A note of interest about the snowtrooper, Luke (duel), and Vader (duel)... the ones shipping now are a variant version of the original. The card back is the same (gold stripe etc), but the arrangement of the numbers on the bubble insert is different and the UPC has changed. I found that out when trying to return the first one I got for a newer better condition one later... the bar codes didn't match so now I have two of each.

In Alaska I recently found the Hoth wave... again. Brown coat Han Hoth (still haven't seen the Blue coat on gold stripe card yet), Boba, etc...

Nothing newer than the Hoth wave and still have never seen Elan, Obi bar, Ayy, McQuarrie trooper, clone wars saesae, poseable trooper, red ARC...

The HOF figures are showing up at Targets in my area. This past Monday, I picked up the elusive C-3PO from the Target in Howell. Other than that, it's been quite dry for some time now. I still haven't found Jabba's Palace Luke, or J'Quelle. Any advice?

This area has been so dry, for so long, I've resorted to preordering the case assortments. It takes away the fun of the "hunt", but at least I'm sure I'll get the figures. I had such a problem with much of the Clone Wars Assortments, that I had to go this route. I still hit the shelves for exclusives, vehicles, Ultra's, etc., but for the basic figures its Mr. Postman.

BTW, I have an assortment on the way (who knows when it will arrive), but I believe I will have an extra Jabba's Palace Luke, and J'Quelle. When they arrive, and I can confirm this. . . if you are still in need maybe we can work something out. I'll keep you posted, and good luck on your hunts!!!!

Sounds good to me. You wouldn't by chance happen to have an extra Clone Wars Kit Fisto? He's the only figure from that line that I'm currently missing. Let me know whether you're thinking of trade or cash...

In other News, I stopped by the Target in Ocean Twp this morning and there was an entire set of the HOF figures. I picked up the Vader and Stormtrooper, but left the C-3PO and others.

I only have one Kit Fisto. I couldn't find any of that wave at retail, so I resorted to a Sci-Fi Show. That was the wave that did it in for me. All pre-orders from that point on.

Just picked up the exclusive K_Mart Cantina set up in Scotch Plains. Was excited to see this set, but I am at pleased with the overall detail. First since we already have three staright bar bases we really should have been treated to possibly two straight sections and one curved. Second the paint job on Wuher is HORRID. He looks like a pig in mud. The orignal figure was fine, why change. The new sculpt of Dr Evazan is alright but his waist is unportionate to his body, results of either Slim Fast or Atkins? lol lol K'With is alright right but I seriously hope Hasbro intends to raise the bar on these and perhaps give us new figures and not just rehash of the old. The second set is really not getting me excited to hunt for since it is all rehash. :mad:

Just found the OTC carded versions of the Endor Wave, Han, Madine and Lando. In think I prefer this form of packaging as compared to the saga versions. These figures are all pretty cool but still have no idea as to why Hasbro decided to make the Han AT-ST figure ? We really never see Han in the uniform, we only see his head with the pilot helmet. Either way it is a cool figure and can be used for either that scene in Jedi or the possibilities of EXPANDED UNIVERSE.........

Just found the New Y-Wing at the Toys R Us in Elizabeth as well as the silver anniversary Vader and the Vintage C-3PO. I think the Threepio is absolutely Horrible, definately not worth the $10 price tag. The Y-wing is alright but the main body is too chrome like, would have been better if Hasbro gave it some battle scaring and sounds.
