The Target in Edison had 2 B-Wings on the shelf around 2:30-3:00pm today. The figures they had were Aurra Sing, Snow Obi-Wan, Jedi armour Qui and mechanic Chewie.
The Target in Milltown today had 1 B-wing 1 Duros figure and 2 Dart Mauls and thats it.
The K-Mart on rt#18 still has Ketwol, S.A.Maul and Sabe.

The B-Wing was the last thing I have seen in a while in NJ. I found it in the Target further south on the TP. It was in New Brunswick I believe.

Dropped by yesterday after 5:00PM and there were six B-Wings sitting on the top shelf. I already got mine so I left them alone. Just a couple of pegwarmers left for the POTJ figs.

I saw a few more of the B-Wings at the Target in Manalapan. Is it just me or does it seem like these things aren't selling?

If NJ is like Calif, they probably are selling, but somewhat slowly. I was told thay had a whole pallet full in the back. My guess is that a few each day are selling, and they are filling the spot back up as it empties out.

At $40 bucks a pop, this thing is overpriced. $35 bucks is what it is worth max, IMO, even $30 bucks is more like it.

I plan on picking up an extra if and when the B-wing goes on discount.

Found some POTJ on sale @$2.99 at the KB inside the EB Square Mall. Got old Ben, Vader Dagobah, Qui Gon (Mos Espa), ObiWan (Jedi) to open. They also had Anakin mechanic and DM pegwarmers. I guess most of the army builders that came with these had already been picked thru. Nevertheless, I haven't bought any of these to open so I couldn't resist buying them. I only got one of each so there's still more of them left (at least five figs or more for each figure).

I have seen the 4 fan club exclusive figures on the shelves of Toys R' Us.

Finally snagged four more Gungan warriors at the Target in Manalapan for my Gungan army. Got four of them last week from the Target in Boundbrook (just off rt 287). Good thing Hasbro repacked these army builders from the previous one fig a case. I still have to find more Biker Scouts...

I found the new 12 inch at Toys R' Us off the Turnpike.

ACPin
09-15-2001, 12:45 PM
Was there last night just before 7:00PM and found a pile of TIE Interceptors in the middle of the sales floor (probably about 30 of them). There were more on the upper shelves and I didn't even buy one since I already got several of the vintage.

POTJ figures - Gungan Warriors, Sabe, Ketwol, Duros, Senate Guards

Some of the usual Episode I clearance items are still there like the AF Naboo Fighter, MTT, Republic Cruiser.

None of the new 12" but they still had the bounty hunters.

I was at the Targets in Linden and Edison today. Both had the same things, Sabe, ketwol, Bespin Guards, Mon Cal and Bespin Escape Leia. They also had a few B-Wings and a few of the 12" Bounty hunters. I also stopped at the K-Mart in Linden, but they didn't have anything.

Nothing new at the Wal-mart and K-Mart in Piscataway/S.Plainfield, but the Old Bridge K-Mart has the new Han, Luke and Vader. No Shmi or Obi-Wan. Also the Wal-Mart in O.B. still has no SW Figures.

PS AC Pin when I was at the K-Mart in Marlboro(Manalapin) Saturday they Still had a ton of Gungans and Dirty Biker Scouts.

Thanks for the tip but I couldn't get to that store. I did manage to get another B-Wing on clearance last Saturday at the Milltown Target for the sale price. There were still about a dozen of them left. Looks like they also had the new Vader, Luke and Han since I saw a couple of Han Solo left over.

ACPin
10-22-2001, 08:15 AM
Finally made it to that store and I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the amount of POTJ that they had. Of course I did get the army builders that I needed, thanks to you Jim. There's more left for those that are still in need of the following:

Gungan Warriors
Biker Scouts (about a dozen at least)
Senate Guards
Battle Droid-Boomer Damage
Mon Calamari Officer
K3PO
Saesee Tiin
Aurra Sing
Darth Maul-Sith Apprentice

Plus a few other pegwarmers...

10-22-2001, 03:34 PM
The Target in Middletown (as of yesterday) had the 12" Luke/Speederbike, Death Star droid and Death Star Commander. Just the regular peg warmers for the smaller figures which are Ketwol, Bespin Guard, Mon cal and Bespin escape Leia. Also the Old Bridge Wal-Mart has nothing.

ACPin
10-24-2001, 07:23 AM
The Target in Milltown (two days ago) had the 12" Luke/Speederbike, Shmi and ObiWan EU. The remaining Duros wave were still there and a couple of Han but no Vader or Luke to be found. There were still at least 8 B-Wings on sale.

ACPin
10-27-2001, 10:11 PM
No POTJ, only the 12" wave of Han, DS Trooper and DS Droid at $21.86 each. :( Still cheaper if you order from KBKIDS at $14.99 each.

ACPin
10-31-2001, 07:49 AM
One B-Wing left with the reduced price tag of $19.90 and at least six of the Luke Speederbike. POTJ was just the Duros wave.

smurfvader
10-31-2001, 03:39 PM
I wasn't able to get to a computer yesterday, but I saw the Palm talkers and the new 12" wave at Wal-Mart in Piscataway. The Palm Talkers (at $8.96) are a buck cheaper than Toys R Us.
Old Bridge Wal-Mart still has nothing.

ACPin

A pair of the deluxe figs with banged up cards for $14.99 each were there last night at Electronics Boutique. They could still be the same figs that my son was telling me about two weeks ago. KB had nothing much except for the usual pegwarmers of POTJ Maul, old Ben, ObiWan, Anakin and a bunch of FF Leias.

ACPin
11-20-2001, 07:17 AM
Had the deluxe figs but a couple of DM were left and priced at $9.98 each. Still plenty of the POTJ Chewie mechanic, Sabe, Ketwol and Leia.

Shirtless Maul at both E.Brunswick and S.Plainfield K-Marts. The S.Plainfield one also had the Luke in Bacta tank.

11-29-2001, 08:14 AM
On Monday after work, I dropped by to see just in time as they were opening two boxes of the deluxe figs. The Vader, Luke X-Wing and Han wave were a plenty and I was able to snag a couple of dirty Sandtroopers. There were still plenty of 12" dewbacks marked down to $29.99. The Sith Lords two-pack were still tagged at $39.99 but when I scanned them, the $29.99 sale price showed up. I got a couple of figures that I was surprised to see under the bin with the Episode 1 pegwarmers. :D

Somerville TRU had tons of the FX-7/Queen/Fleet Trooper/Imperial Commander wave but nothing else as of last night. They also haev AT-STs.

Hey guys....new member....first post,
I found the 4 E2 deluxe figures (Obi-Wan, Mace, Jango, and Darth Tyranus) along with Slave-1, Jedi Starfighter and the new electronic lightsabers at K-Mart in West Long Branch!! They also had the 3 new MB board games (Stratego, LIFE, and Epic Battles) and some E2 jigsaw puzzles. Its nice to see that some stores have no regard for the street date! No sign of the Legos.

Went back to K-mart in West Long Branch today and they not only put out more of the deluxe figures, but there was a whole endcap of the Lego sets. The Republic Gunship was absent however.

smurfvader
04-14-2002, 06:14 PM
While this doesn't have anything to do with figures I did see some candy related to Episode 2 at Target in Milltown. They were lollipops with plastic casings over them that are in the shape of different Star wars characters. There was Darth Vader, Anakin, Clone trooper, and Stormtrooper. Really cool looking, but I'm waiting for the Pez.

Picked up a TIE Bomber at Manville/Somerville Wal-Mart this morning. There may be more (how many are in a case?)- look on the top shelves (that's where mine was).

I left at least 1 snowspeeder.

No Dookus to be found.

Damn!!!! I must have just missed those Exclusives at WalMart Old Bridge, ACPin. I stopped by at like 11, and they had nothing. Oh well, I'll keep looking. What aisle were they in. . .regular action figs, or with the AOTC stuff? I've been checking the WalMart in Howell too, but it is a dump, and I hate even trying that one.

05-02-2002, 09:54 AM
I picked up a Tie Bomber yesterday at the Brick Wal-Mart. It was just sitting on the shelf by the POTJ figures. It looked as if it had been hidden previously as it had a fine coating of dust over the whole package. A simple wipe with a damp rag and it's now mint.

It seems that the TRU in Eatontown got a new shipment last night. I was told to arrive early Thursday as the usually restock overnight. When I got there at 9:25, I talked to the stock person who gave me the heads-up earlier in the week. He told me that the only thing they received was the 12" Mace Windu (Not Interested!). So I went over to the bins anyway. Lo and behold what did I see but a HD Anakin right up top. A little digging reveiled a few Yodas and my missing Count Dooku. I picked up two easy scores and left the rest for those poor saps who haven't found him yet. Finally, 27/27.

Jonna

Maybe not the best section for it, but Clearview Theatres just began pre-sale tickets on Monday in NJ. One would never know it though as they have not really advertised it. Even at the Hackettstown theatre where I picked up mine, there was not even a flyer on the door to let people know. I only knew because they have the dates and times of shows listed on their web-site.

Just the Facts: 5/9 6:30 pm, Rockaway TRUs
Same old stuff, I swear that they will never sell off those bins packed full with common figures. However, they did have 4 AT-ST/Speeder bikes and about 12 pegs of figures from the Imperial Officer wave.

Just the Facts: 5/9 8:30 PM, Wal-mart Mansfield
All the normal stuff, except for the fact that they had 2 Taun We figures right in front. I also noticed that I have not been seeing many of the Clone Troopers lately. I guess that all of the individuals trying to build armies are snatching them up.

Darth Ludicrous
05-10-2002, 03:37 PM
I found a Jango Fett final battle at Target in Somerville today. I believe it was only there because the card was bent. No sign of Mace, Luke or Vader. There were a couple Dookus on the pegs, which is something I haven't seen much of in this area. Apparently Target is getting new assortments though.

Somerville TRU has deluxe amanaman and leia at $5, and plenty of rebel trooper wave at $5.99. Nothing new E2 wise (though I got Dooku there last week).

All the regular stuff except for about 15 each of Taun We, Luminara Unduli, and Royal Guard. They also had one of the new Qui-Gon Jin, which I did not get because they just can not give that character a proper head. I did however pick up the last Ornfree Taa and Massiff. Good luck!

What could make a night of clubing complete except driving around to different stores in search of SW toys the next day. Damn, an I sore. Anyway, I went back to the Mansfield Walmart at 4 PM and they had the same exact figures as the day before. I guess that no one wants the new Qui-Gon Jin.

I also went to the Budlake Walmart at 5 PM and they had a ton of Clone Troopers along with a few Dexter Jettsters and Geonosian Warriors. It seens as though the Taun We/Royal Guard/Luminara Unduli wave is not that hard to come by anymore as they had many of each figure. One thing that I have noticed though is that I have not seen any Yodas in weeks. What happened!?! During the Midnight Madness deal no one really cared about that figure. Atleast at the Rockaway TRUs where I went.

Well I was at TRU in parsippany again, around 6:30 PM, and they had nothing new at all. Actually, they had a small box of POTJ figures near the AOTC display with a rebel trooper, Snaggle Tooth, Queen Amidala (Black dress) and a couple Eeth Koths. I only picked up a Vader though. Still looking for a BoShek.

At least 10 POTJ blue senate guards
And lots of Bespin Guards

It seems some POTJ army builder cases
made it late to that store

Don't forget to price match with the K-mart add
(Buy one get one 50% off.)

Good Luck

Parsippany TRU 5/13 6:00 PM
Picked up the last Luke. This figure has the best accesories ever, but I can't get the antena thing to hang for more than a half an hour. I think that I will try two pieces of velcro-tape or something. They did have alot of Vaders, Jangos and Maces. They also had 2 of the Tie fighters. Thanks to MikeAndTheBots for the original post.

Rockaway TRU 5/13 7:00 PM
They had a few Jangos and Maces, but that is about it. On a strange note, I actually met another poster of this forum there, who's web name I can't seem to remeber. "Don't be a stranger."

Budlake Walmart 5/14 9:30 AM
Same stuff as my prior post from Sunday. I did however pick up a sneak preview Jango. I guess that they are still floating around.

Good luck all!!!

HAHAHAHA!!! That is really funny. No, I was refering to another person that I met at the Rockaway TRUs. However, I was at the Parsippany TRUs and did start up a conversation by saying "Which ones are you looking for?" Then I mentioned the other TRU by the mall. So I guess I met two fellow forum posters in one day. Good luck finding the Luke; if I find anymore I will be sure to post.:crazed: :crazed: :crazed:

Did you check the TRU by the wayne mall that I had mentioned? Did they have anything? I went there every few days when I was going to college because it was so close. Actually I bought most of my collection there (it's up to 129 MIB figures now (not counting doubles)). I use to have them all up in my den like wallpaper, but I ran out of wall space so I just store most of them in comic boxes now. :Pirate: :Pirate: :evil:

Crap, I went to TRu in parsippany today... NOTHIGN AT ALL NEW!
All that was there were the peg warmers! No Bespin wave, no Qui-Gon wave, nothing at all! And to top it off, they condensed all the POTJ stuff into one shelf and the vehichles are on a pretty high shelf (maybe 6' or 7' up, i had to reach pretty far to get them and I'm about 5' 8"). Oh and almost all the saga stuff is in one of those bins. I'm guessing they are getting a new shipment soon or somehting since It seemed they cleared it up for new stuff...

Well, over the long weekend I went to Walmarts in Ledgewood, Budd Lake, Mansfield (3x) and Phillipsburg and the SW sections in all four stores are really thinning out. It seems like the stores might be condensing the SW section to perhaps half the size. Does anyone know any WM employees that can confirm this?

Also went to the TRUs in Phillipsburg and the SW section is a shadow of its former self.

05-28-2002, 12:42 PM
Got a load of the Bespin Vader, Luke (no blood), Mace and Jango final battle yesterday.

On a side note, I've noticed that since the movie has been seen by the younger kids, the main characters have been selling out! No more Obi-Wan, Anakin, Padme (a few) and Yoda. I sure wish I could have helped them yesterday since quite a number of them were digging thru the bins to try to find these figures. :(

I don't know what is up with Walmarts lately but they seem really cleared out. I went to the one in Mansfield twice this past weekend and they are down to about 15% to 20% of the SW section. They must be shrinking the section.

I went in looking for the newer waves and was immidiately dissapointed. I glanced arouned the pegs and didn't see anything. Nothing from the bespin wave or up. Then, I noticed a FB Jango (which I have one of anyway) so I looked up (he was sitting under one of the peg racks, on a shelf) and saw a Kidney Stone Mace, a few of them. I thought "They must have gotten a new shipment". So I walked over to the bin and saw one, lonely Bespin Luke. I picked it up, payed and went home satisfied. There may be more but I didn't check.
btw: he's a really good figure.

It is about a mile down the road on the right hand side.

It would be best to get the address from Yahoo address locator then put it into Yahoo maps. Then just put your address in and it will give you a direct travel route from your front door. That's your best bet. Hope this helps!:D

Sorry about my last post on this thread. I was going to post a long list of all the 9 different places that I went on Saturday, but while I was doing it I kept having problems with my connection to the internet. Most everything I found would probably be gone by now. Seems as though NJ was flooded with the new waves over the weekend. I also wonder about the rarity of Bloody hand Luke when I find over a dozen of them at Allentown Mall!

The Brick Wal-Mart had the Teemto/Ki-Adi wave in stock yesterday. 3 to 4 of each figure. They also had all figures from GR Mace through Djas Pur. I picked up a better looking Endor Solo (His arm actually looks like its in a physically possible position!) Good luck!:D

My wife just picked up Darth Maul and TA Anakin from Kohls in Howell, NJ. Unfortunately, the cost associated with Kohls wasn't all that great. She had a coupon for her whole purchase entitling her to 15% off, but the chashier ended up screwing up giving her a 10% off and then a 15% off. When all was said and done, they ended up being right around $6.00. Good luck.:)

Stopped by the Monmouth Mall before work today, and the KB was well stocked with tons of the newer figures.
Picked myself up:
Lott Dodd
Endor Soldier (Clean Shaven)
Padme Pilot
Darth Maul Training
Anakin Tatooine Attack
Watto
Tusken with Massif
Clone w/Gun Turret (Yellow markings)
Jango Fett (Pilot)

I couldn't remember the last time (excluding midnight madness) when I went to a store and found NINE new figures that I haden't previously seen at retail!!! An excellent start to my day. Anyone who goes there should be able to pick up these (maybe not the Jango, I only saw the one.)

Good luck to all!

I just came back from the new Target in Phillipsburg. They just opened up yesterday afternoon. The only thing I am looking for is the Target exclusive accesory packs. Of course they were picked clean in less than 24 hours of the store opening, Ugh!

They had plenty of Gunships , Yoda and C3P0 deluxe figures. Alot of Micromachines too.

Not much else in terms of new figures.

KB, TRU, Walmart, Target in Hamilton, NJ (Atlantic City)

I'm going to school in Pomona, NJ, at Stockton.

At the KB at Hamilton Mall, for the past couple weeks, they have occasionally gotten some of the newer wave in, but mostly it's a lot of the old stuff. Plenty of Obi Wan/Jedi Starfighter.

The TRU across the street from the mall - has plenty of the new wave. Lots of Darth Maul, a handful of Yoda's, some Teemto, a few Watto, and less of the Geonosian w/Massiff, but a few Tuskens with Massiff. Lots of the new Padme, and I imagine they'll get a new shipment of Clone Pilots soon. I got mine a few weeks ago, and they had lots of them. Lott Dodd, I've seen one of him, and I picked that up.
There are at least two Gunships on the shelf out front.
Plenty of 12 inch, but no Zuckuss or Dengar.
And there was a stack of about 6 of the Luke with Tauntaun 12 inch.
And a few of the Luke w/landspeeder.

Then the Walmart next door-
There hasn't been much new over the last month. I'm looking forward to getting the new cantina sets though. The only noteworthy thing they have is a bunch of Acklays, but they aren't with the rest of the stuff, they're behind the display, above the isle behind the other star wars stuff.

Lastly, the Target in the plaza nearby.
This place hasn't gotten a shipment for weeks.
But they are selling basic figures for 2.99, and last I checked, it was a lot of Jar Jars and Niktos. 2 Royal Guards.
When they get shipments in (which has been about a month) they do get good deluxe figures. I've seen a few of the accessory sets there, and I got a Flying Geonosian from there.

More updates as I find things here and in Eatontown on weekends.

Jordashebasics
11-01-2002, 02:19 PM
As of around 1:30 this afternoon-
At least two or three Flying Geonosians.
Plenty of the Action Fleet exclusives.
Maybe 5 Gunships.
I picked up the last Clone Trooper deluxe
At least one of each of the accessory set exclusives.

Jordashebasics
11-02-2002, 11:21 PM
Comics Plus - a comic shop up on Route 35, just past the Monmouth Mall going south.
They've got some of the more recent lines of figures up on the wall. Most priced in the 10-15 dollar range. Not bad if you'd like to complete an earlier series.
They cover from around the muscular Skywalker till now. Probably lots of gaps though.
And in another area, they have some of the Cinema Scenes packages, a few other boxed figures, collectibles, etc.

Walmart on Black Horse Pike, Hamilton, and the TRU next to it both have the Zuckuss 12 inch wave.

They've moved their Star Wars sectioin against the wall facing the main parking lot. I have no clue what they're up to, but there they are. I finally had enough searching for Ephant Mon so I picked up a Mint (Really nice) figure at the Record/Comic store in Howell. Wouldn't you know it. My wife is out shopping at the Target in the Sea View Square plaza (Neptune) and lo and behold she finds a Mr. Ephont. Now I've gottwo. I'm still glad I picked up the mint version though.
