What I want to know, is if one part of the country is better for getting figs than another part. Almost everyone seems to be complaining that they can't find the new stuff that has come out(i.e. Tarkin wave, clone three packs,evolution sets ,etc.). What I wanted to know, is what people have found(From the Tarkin wave and on), and what state they are in, just to see if some areas are better than others.


I am in Connecticut,and have seen nothing new in weeks. I still have not seen the Tarkin wave,clone three packs, evolution sets, nothing. I did happen to find one 500 Vader, at ToysRus of all places.

I work in ToysRUS and so far Ive found Tarkin, Clone Three, 500 Vader, Evolution in Kmart, NO Bacara. I live in NJ and I just think the problem is getting them before everyone else, not that they don't show up. Oviously different parts of the country some things are in more supply then others.

I hate to rub it in, but out here in California we've seen everything that's been mentioned -

Tarkin wave
Bacara wave
Clone 3-packs (White, Red, Blue AND Green)
500th Vader
Evolutions - Anakin
Battlepack - Jedi vs Sith

We ARE the first stop coming over from Asia, so that probably explains why we see a lot of stuff first. Plus, I live in Los Angeles, which is a HUGE retail market, so the stores around here order more merchandise than say...Nebraska (no offense to any Cornhuskers out there.)

Bacara wave: KB Toyworks
Clone 3-packs: (Blue=, although I didn't look for variances as I thought they were all white) KB Toyworks
500th Vader: KB Toyworks (but I didn't buy it not interested)
Evolutions - Anakin: K-Mart
Battlepack - Jedi vs Sith: K-Mart

I agree you just have to head out when the stuff is released and grab it if you really want it (I know this violates my chisler image from previous posts, but I'm not taking the chance on missing out on some really good stuff they are making). Make the regular runs to Target, TRU, KB (yes KB!!!, and they are having the buy 1 get 1 50% off sale until 7/27 which gets you down to the Walmart/Target prices and you don't feel like they are porking you), Walmart. Only went to K-Mart for the Jedi vs. Sith set and ended up getting it and the anakin evolutions.

I've only seen the tarkin wave once and that was at a wal-mart in southwest va. about 5 weeks ago...I found the crispy anakin/bacara/r2 wave at a wal-mart in daytona fla...I also found the only three pack of clone troopers that I've ever seen there...and the other day i found the jedi vs sith pack and evolution anakin at my k-mart (athens, ga) whenever I ask wal mart or target they say that the first of august is when they're getting new stuff.

I found the Tarkin wave over a month ago. Since then, I've seen nothing else... no Bacara, no clone 3 packs, no evolutions, no battle packs, nothing over the Bacara wave (obviously), no 500th Vader, no Clone Pilot black variant... NOTHING! It's like Star Wars has fallen off of the radar.
When I hear of all of the things that Hasbro is coming out with, I would normally get excited, but instead I have anxiety because I know how much of a hassle it will be to find anything and everything.
I've called stores bright and early in the morning when they open (as I can not physically get to them when the open since I leave my house before 7AM for my morning commute), and they haven't seen any of this stuff. If they have, like the Bacara wave, they say it was gone as soon as they opened, but the Battle Packs, Evolutions, etc... nothing. I've gone by stores when I get out of work, on lunch, and on the weekends (I'm talking about 3 TRU's, a KB, 3 Wal*Marts, 4 Targets, and 2 Meijers), and they say that they just aren't getting the figures. They have too many of the remaining figures from the stupid Wookie Warrior wave, and the Lightsber Palpy wave. TRU's say that they have received the 500th Vader, but it's gone before they can actually get the figures to the shelves... the collectors and scalpers that come in at opening take them. They say it's the same people over and over again, buying multiples of the same stuff.

What pi**es me off the most is the thought that this stuff is out there, that it is hitting stores, but that it's not available for purchase because of scalpers. It pi**es me off to think that I'm not getting to the stores early enough to get these items. I'm losing my interest in STAR WARS because of sh*t heads like that (the ones who buy up everything so they can resell it for a profit). I can't stand those bastards.

You don't see this problem with anything else in my area. I've seen other threads that list other toy lines that are hard to find, and STAR WARS seems to be the hardest to find in my area. I just don't get it. I don't understand how a store can have 20 Star Wars figures on the pegs, have 10-15 open pegs with NOTHING on them, and NOT get anything in to restock. If they are getting boxes in to restock, then I can't believe that they would sell out of that many figures in a day. Remember, I call EVERYDAY!
Also, the online stores that do have resonable prices... of course I mean prices that are only about $1-$2 over store prices (collectibletimes.com, omgcnfo.com, hasbrotoyshop.com, etc), don't have anything in stock either.
So, to answer your question, after my raging, the Western suburbs of Chicago don't have Sh*t!

Ah, you turd! :D

Around here things pop up and then disappear, the Bacara wave being a prime example of that. I seen it one day, went back to the store about three days later and there was no trace of it. Go back about three days after that and i stumble upon them again. I think location is a big factor in what all pops up, plus the amount of time one can dedicate to the hobby. Someone who can hit the stores every day will get more than someone who can only go once a week or so. Right here in Omaha, Nebraska, there seems to be a decent amount of things that have hit, the biggest problem is just running into it when it has arrived.

Report from Ohio

Tarkin Wave twice (At two seperate Meijer stores)
Baccara Wave once (Meijer again)
Ani/Vader Evolutions once (K-Mart)
Battle pack Jedi/Sith once (K-Mart)
Target glasses (Han, Yoda & Boba) Once

No 500 Vader. No Clone 3 packs.

It's been slim pickin's to say the least. Walmart, TRU & Target have been devoid of new stuff since late May. It's quite pathetic. :frus:

I'm in NE Pennsylvania and it's been just as bad.
HOWEVER, the good news I got yesterday will hopefully help us ALL out.
Target is resetting for Christmas the 1st week of August. According to Keith the Wilkes-Barre PA toy mgr, most Targets are going to see a relocation of stock(games, puzzles) to places them belong, and we'll get left with a 8ft section for basic stuff like figures and vehicles. He said the requests for new stuff and restocks are mutliple EVERY SINGLE DAY and that will factor into a lot of new stuff(we PRAY) in August around the 15th. He also said the restocking by computer will hopefully be quicker due to the demands-it's being watched closely. Now for those of you nowhere near here, this Target has been GREAT before this current drought, so I believe ol' Keith.
Walmart in the same town has a REALLY active toy mgr names Felicia. She is resetting the toy dept the week of the 8th and expects it completed the 15th. She has actually had a few conversations with Hasbro in July about getting restocked and new product in and they keep telling her that there is a lot of stuff in the "pipeline". Again, this Walmart has been EXPLOSIVELY good with new and restocks, so I think that by 3rd week in August, last week in August, Walmart will start hitting again.
My local Wilkes-Barre Kmart has a mgr named Ginger, they are doing Christmas inventory AS I WRITE THIS. New stuff should continue to trickle in, but August is expected to be the big start of new figures and Evolutions and Battle packs-she specifically mentioned the push of these items by nmae w/o my prompting, so I believe her, too.

Anyway, yes, it's horrible right now. Add one extra Tarkin wave, one catch of the 500th Vader, one local report(I trust it) of the Battle packs, a few scattered sightings of the Clone Deluxe waves(all 4-white/blue/red/green), and what you have listed above is EXACTLY the amount of each I've seen.

While it is ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC right now, I'm holding onto hope and not chucking my love for the hobby. I DO believe we will find stuff, it's just gonna take another month:bored: .
On the plus side, BoxOfficeMojo listed the US + Foriegn tallys and ROTS is upto #15 all time, soon to be #7 in the US(it'll have a crawl to $378mil, but it'll DO what MUST BE DONE). So, if any toy mgrs get fed up and cocky with you about the popularity of SW, print off a couple of things- the BOM domestic and worldwide film tallys, a copy of the RS.com ROTS checklist, and a Comic-con or EE preview of what't to come. Since $$$ talks, all these would go far to convert someone to order the Wars for the toy aisles.

This is my report from Pittsburgh.

Personally I have up to #50, but some of those with some help from a buddy. I never saw Crispy Anakin and Bacara in stores, yet a friend found them and got one each for me. I did see the Tarking wave once. Got a set for me and told other colelcting buddies about it that night. Next day they were all gone. I got the R2 at Target and the Tarking wave at TRU

Haven't seen Evolutions yet.
Seen Vader 500 THREE times now! KMart (2 different ones), TRU
Clone 3-packs. Only found white and red. But others in my areas have found the other two. Found my clone 3-packs only at Wal*Mart

Nothing. Absolutely nothing in the Chicagoland area. I go to at least one Wal-Mart, Toys R Us, and Target a day, and I can't even get the Tarkin wave. The only thing that I am having any luck in is the clone trooper deluxe packs.

There's a Utah guy here

http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=1305194&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1#1305194

that says he found an Obi Pilot. He says it again and gives a little more detail in a just found thread in the same forum.

Haven't seen it on ebay yet so I'm not sure he's telling the truth, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Absolutely no sign of the Tarkin wave in eastern South Dakota, southwest Minnesota. One night I did stumble across the R2 and Bacarra figures, but no crispy Anakin. I've seen all of the deluxes, including the variations of clone 3 packs, and found the 500th figure Vader. No Evolution sets, either.

I'm in Bellingham, WA and I've found through #50 except for the three in the Tarkin wave. Some I didn't see very many of. I was in Springfield, MO last week and I finally found a blue guard at TRU. I found another one at a collectible place there called Caveman. That one was $12.97, but I bought it and a light Wookiee (also $12.97) so that I would have an extra one of each. To those in Springfield looking for those figures, my apologies for swooping in and snatching them up.

While in Springfield, I saw the Anakin Evolution and Jedi vs Sith at a couple of K-Marts. I didn't have room to bring them back with me, plus I figured they will be showing up back home soon. Also, they should be cheaper elsewhere.

When I returned home, there were fewer figures on the pegs and nothing new.

Here in Central NJ, it's been slim pickings for over a month. Here's all I've found during that time:

Wookiee Flyer - twice: TRU (bought it there) and Target
Crispy Anakin wave - twice: Target (bought Baccara & Ani) and Bozcovs - both gone within a day
M&M figs - found the first 4 sets at TRU, found Luke/Leia from wave 2 at KB earlier - left them all
Han, Yoda, Fett glasses - found them once at Target, but didn't bother.
Deluxe Wave 3 - found these twice at Target, but no sign of the Clones. Last time for this wave was the same day I found 48-50.

Have never seen the Tarkin wave in stores, but got them off of Amazon. Finally got a second Red Guard off Amazon last week, as well as Antillies and the Utapauian Warrior - don't know if they had sold out of Zett, or if they simply never had it, but I'm keeping an eye out for that one.

No sign of 500th Vader - preordered mine months ago, but now Amazon has them listed as out of stock. Ditto for Yoda/Palpy Unleashed - I hope I'm still gonna get these. No sign of the Evolutions either.

Worst part of this, since fiiding 48-50 at Target three weeks ago, they have not restocked the pegs. In fact, the last two weeks, they have had half the pegs filled, with nothing but about 30+ Nemoidian Guards (and they want to reissue these with a new paint job!!!!) and a couple of Bail Organas.

Between myself, Darth Alex, and other members of the PSWCS, we've found quite a bit up here in Northeastern PA. However, about half of the items were found once maybe twice and now nothing good. Wal-Mart's been stripped clean for over a month, and all the major stores here are saying nothing new until mid-August.

Although, come mid-August it's supposed to be a deluge of 4/2 proportions...and all new items (51-56, Evolutions, battlepacks, etc.)

Here's what we've found at one point or another:

Tarkin wave (only several times)
Mustafar wave (only several times)
mPire figures (very common - TRU for wave 1, K-Mart for wave 2)
500th Darth Vader (once or twice)
Wookiee flyer (once or twice)
Evolutions: Anakin Skywalker (twice)
Jedi vs. Sith battlepack (found the box once - someone stole everything in it)
12 Inch: Shaak Ti and Barriss Offee (pegwarming in Columbia County)

I also got:

Pilot Obi-Wan (see review thread - great figure!)
ATRT Driver
Clone Shocktrooper (Palpatine's Coruscant forces or # 6 red repaint).

I have 1-56 except for 55 - Mustafar Sentry.

I haven't found anything in months, not since #41-44. Pretty lame, very standard Hasbro problem, quite sick of it really.

I found 2 Vader Evolutions and wave 1, all 4 of the Mpire at the Wilkes-Barre, PA Walmart. It's a good find, but only 1 case of each was put out and this was this afternoon. I stopped there about an hour ago and ALL items were gone.

Does anyone in retail realize that the demand for SW hasn't just vanished?

Guess what I found in ALASKA?? An unleashed clone trooper at a Fred Meyer... I was shocked- I had NEVER seen it at retail before, then at wal mart I found an unleashed IG-88(minus Aurra and stormie :mad: )- again I had NEVER any of this wave at all. Also got a 12 inch Shaak and saw all of the others.. But it is really weird- its like April was frozen in time up there. You could find every thing 1-20 up there no trouble. I also saw POTC for gods sake.. like Sly Moor, yura and pablo.

Before Alaska I did find mPire but skiped those. After ROTS figs are done im basically gonna stop collecting- its a pain in the @ss trying to track down all this stuff- and still not being able to find it. Come the Saga wave im going to buy what and only what I want- no more completist ideas. Besides, it looks like were going to be getting more wonderfull repacks!!! :D

I thought I hit the jackpot, and then reality hit me in the face!

I went to Target on my lunch last Friday. An employee was restocking the shelves. He had about 10 boxes of 3 3/4" figs!!!!! So, naturally, I thought I was a lucky guy. Yeah right!:mad: What was I thinking??? To think that I actually had faith in the distribution of Hasbro merchandice.
ALL of the figures that were in the boxes were #33 through #44. I just don't get it. How can it be that NONE of the figures were newer figures? None of the Ani wave, none of the variants, none of the Tarkin Wave, nothing newer. There were no evolutions or battlepacks boxes either.
I asked the employee if anyone had picked up any of the figures before I got there (because I couldn't understand how none of the figures were new), and he said that no one had been in the Star Wars aisle since he started to unpack the figures... that I was the first one. So I'm stunned that the store would get a ton of figures that have already been out everywhere, and have already established themselves as peg warmers.
Now here's the kicker... since the store now has over 100 figures that are old and peg warmers, they will most likely NOT get any new stock in for a while... or at least until they sell all of the figures that never sold to begin with!
I give up too.

Same thing here in Texas. I have only found up to figure 44. No sign of Tarkin wave, Bacara wave, green, red, or blue clone packs, or 500th vader. Yes, this sucks for me! I guess I will continue to wait it out. Will I EVER find anything?

Found 3 Ani to Vader Evolution Packs, and about 17 500th Darth Vaders today at a local target. The whole bottem shelf was packed with the Vaders, and I wasnt even expecting to find the Evolutions pack, but I did, so I snagged one up. Passed on the Vader, maybe Ill go back and get it, but maybe not. It didnt look all that exciting to me. Ah well, happy hunting everyone! :) :) :)

I know that further waves have been spotted in my area, but I don't have the time nor energy to make the trips around the region, like I used to. I know that eventually they will show up and while it might be months from now, I will get my paws on them.

Are these repaints only Wal-Mart exclusives, or is it that they've just been showing up there right now? If that's true, I can kiss my chances good-bye, just as I have with baby Luke/Leia. The Wal-Mart by me has never once had the exclusives in stock going back to 1996, and is a hotbed for scalpers. I stopped in there tonight (which is rare, since it's so out of the way for me), and it looked like they still hadn't refilled the now-condensed-to-5-pegs in weeks.

I went to the local Walmart today and found a bunch of Commander Bacara's and AT-TE Gunners on the pegs. One Mustafar Anakin, and only one Clone Tropper #6 repainted as the Shock Trooper. Since that was the only one that interested me, I picked it up. Also found a Red and Blue Guard, but I don't know if either are that rare anymore. I haven't seen the repaint of the Clone Pilot, Turbo Tank Driver, and Obi-Wan Red Leader. Any of you seen these?

PS
It was the first time I've seen any new figures since the release of the movie..

i work nights so i have plenty of time to hunt here in Missouri, i go to 5 targets,5 k-marts,6 wal-marts and 3 tru's every week, most stores i hit 2-3 times a week, nothing new for weeks just up to #50 ,vader evol. 500th vader, jedi vs. sith bp. tired of seeing the sw section filled with vader helmets, vader sprinklers, monopoly games and in some stores leftover sw candy. one of my targets reset the sw section from a 15' section down to a 3' section filled with neimo's and mas amedas,so i geuss they won't have anything new for a least another year!!!

To those who have requested the figures, as of lunchtime when I went to pick them up, we were sold out. I'll check again tomorrow to see if we get anymore in the truck tonight. Sorry, I really tried.

Totally agree, don't give in. Based on what I've found I have a feeling these will be everywhere shortly.

I found 5 more Shock Troopers today, again at Wal-Mart. I was pretty happy about that because I now have exactly the amount I was looking to obtain. Pretty nice to be done with those this early in the game. I also found one #33 green Clone Commander, so hit WM hard people. They seem to be the store for this assortment.

flinally here in missouri at one of my targets last night found #51,probably could have found #52 & #53 if i had gotten their earlier in the day. they also have shelf tags up for evolution & bp sets now. they did have 3 vader evolutions and 1 blue clone 3-pack. talked to wm stocker, they said they probably would not get anything new until after reset in august, not a problem unless they fill it back up with previous waves.

I haven't found anything new in over a month! I got a chance to talk with a Hasbro rep. who was at my local Wal-Mart last week. She said that the store has enough figures, and probably wouldn't be getting any new ones until the ones they have sell down some more. I was incredulous, since although nearly all they have are Chancellor Palpatine, Clone Pilot, Mon Mothma, and a very few Jedi and Bail Organa, the stuff is still selling, albeit slowly. She actually advised me to look to online sources, including Ebay.

I took her up on her offer.

I would have had to ask her why they don't take back the slow selling stock to make room for newer items. Or I'd ask her if they can even do that.
I mean, c'mon... the same 30 Darth Vader voice changing helmets have been sitting on each and every stores' shelves for an eternity! Nobody wants them anymore! Take them away! And I haven't seen so many Legos in my life that aren't selling. Take them away too! Or at least put them in the Lego aisle so they can make room for 3 3/4" figs. Let's bring out figures #45 and up, battle packs, evolutions... newer items!
In the last day or so I've been in a couple of Targets, and they finally restocked! The cruddy thing is that they restocked with figures #24 to #44... AGAIN! I don't know how the stores ordering works. I don't know if they say, "we need 6 boxes of Star Wars stuff," and Hasbro sends them random product lines and waves, or if the store can actually order whatever waves and product lines they want. Either way, something needs to happen. I guess that I'll just have to wait until August when they'll change their inventory.
I just don't want the stock to dwindle so much that the stores start skipping waves, or only getting one or two of a "must have" item.
Around me, stores just don't get stuff in, for the most part. That happened to me with a couple of product lines a coule of years ago... I never got the 2003/#20 Jango Fett-Kamino Escape, 2003/#31 Luke-Tatooine Encounter, 2003/#32 Vader-Death Star Clash, 2003/#50 super articulated Clone Trooper, or 2004/#20 General Madine. I got the Hall of Fame versions, or the 2002 versions, or the OTC versions of those figures, but I never got those. And that erks me, because I can't find them for a decent price (decent proce for me is not spending $20 for a fig including S&H). I don't want that happening to this 2005 collection with the 12 figs that are coming out, or with the remaining figs over # 50.

I went to one of my KB toys and was able to see numbers 41- 56 in collection 1 but haven't even seen 45- 53 in collection 2. The only reason I was able to see this stuff was because I was there as they were putting it out. I did also see 500 vader but i wanted to know if it was gonna be worht anything or not. I will update tomorrow after I go to King of Prussia. BTW tru has nothing new and same with target.

Yea, when I found my figs earlier the Toy Department was layed out completely different. The Star Wars section was smaller than before, which is understandable, but everything was organized and layed out much better. Plus they had new figures out so I'm not going to complain. I just hope they do something with the Wal-Mart here, it is a mess.

I last checked on Monday. Wal-Mart was down to 16 figures that I could see. TRU didn't have anything new, and it is still spread out between the display at the front of the store and the usual section in back. Target had quite a few figures. It actually looked like maybe more had been put out, but nothing new that I saw. I noticed a bunch of #36 Grievous that I'm not sure were there before. I'll be checking again tomorrow to see what's out there.

Finally found some new stuff today...of course, AFTER I spent the equivalent of a 4th figure in shipping costs by getting the Antilles wave off of Amazon. Anyway, I went to a Target in Jersey that had nothing but Neimoidian Warriors and TONS of the Antilles wave, including the Tank Gunner and one Red Guard, which I left since I already have two. I know he's only one per case, while the Gunners are 2, but while they only had he one guard, there had to be at least 30-40 Tank Gunners to go along with all the Antilles, Zett's, and Utapauans. Unfortunately, they had nothing else there.

I went to KB shortly after, and found one Obi-Wan #55 staring right at me. Got that one, but no sign of the Clone repaints or the AT-RT Driver (Mustafar Sentry isn't in this case). One of the employees actually asked me which ones I was looking for, but sure enough, I got to find out that had I only stopped in YESTERDAY, I could have gotten a Shocktrooper before they "all sold out" - and judging by the large numbers of #41 Clones on the pegs (shipping 1 per just like the repaints), I'd say they must have had quite a few of the Red clones. :frus:

Three Wal-Marts in my area stocked today. Got the Shocktrooper, AT-RT driver, and Pilot Obi-Wan, plus some SA Clones. Didn't see any green clone commanders though. I also found the 500th Vader and Jedi v. Sith Battlepack @ Target yesterday.

Mad Slanted Powers
07-30-2005, 04:55 PM
Went searching today. Wal-Mart, which had nearly nothing on Monday, had full pegs today. They had #51 - #53, so I got Antilles, Zett, and two Utapaun Warriors. I saw some Red Guards and AT-TE gunners as well, but I already have two of each of those.

Target had moved their Star Wars stuff over one aisle. A fair number of figures there, but nothing new. I did find one Jedi vs. Sith battle pack so I got that.

Toys R Us looks like they must have got in some deluxe figures. I found a clone trooper three pack with the green clone. While I was in the video game section, an employee saw me with the SW item and asked if I collect. He said that Wal-Mart had had the clone variations this week. He also said Target had had the Anakin Evolution and 500th Vader. Looks like I missed out on all of those for now.

Well out here on Long Island I have seen very little in the way of new figures, but the ones that I have been able to find I have snatched up (and there weren't that many to begin with).

I've seen R2, Bacara, and Crispy Anakin from the Tarkin wave. Obi-Wan Red Leader, Mustafar Warrior (or is it sentry?) and the Turbo Tank driver.

Thats it. No more, no less.

And what is all this talk of repainted #6 clones, and clone pilots? Are these repaints going to be a completely different numbered figure or are they going to be the same number as there original counterpart?

I checked mine out on Sat. since I was tipped off about the pending reset. It was crapola. They crammed their 100+ Neimoidians into half the space, meaning that there will be no new basic figs for sometime. The Ani Evolution was put out but it looks like a waste of plastic to me. Also found the build it yourself lightsaber (meh) and Jedi vs. Sith ($25?! hell no!). The only thing they had I was interested in was the 500 Vader. I don't know why I bought it for $15, I guess it was to keep from going home empty handed.

I did finally get the Zett wave. Went to a WM and my son stumbled across an end cap with tons of figures on shelves, not pegs. They had tons of the Zett wave figures and AT-TEs. I was so happy, I paid off his Crab Droid in layaway for him.

I've also found the green 33, red 6, and black 34 but not the AT-RT or Pilot OB1.

Finally found the Turbo Tank Driver and the Red leader Obi yesterday in Walmart. :) Was surprised to find new product as the Walmart by me has been dry since the middle of June. Still no Tarkin wave or any of the other figures that are in the the red leader wave.
Today at Target was able to pick up the Utapau Security, Captain Antilles and Zett Jukassa. :)

The wierd thing about both days was the amount of Vader's and Palpatine's, as well as SA Clone's and AT-TE Gunners. :confused: Strange when everyone wants them they are no where to be found and then when you finally cave in and pay scalper prices they show up.

The rest were clone repaints, Vaders, and some Grevious. I was suprised there was no Mustafar Sentry (#56). Only one fig away from a complete set. (For now anyway.)

When I started this thread, I wanted to see if any part of the country was better than any other for stock of figs, and I have come up with this conclusion. The east coast sucks, especially here in Connecticut. I went to Walmart last night before they closed, and they had nothing. I went to Target this morning and another Walmart, and they had nothing. I went to ToysRus this weekend and they had nothing. I can't stand this anymore, I have seen nothing new since before the Tarkin wave hit. I can't find anything anywhere. It seems to me the west coast(California,Washington) is the best spot to find things, while the southeast and southwest are not bad either. But,there also seems to be a problem in the midwest(specifically the Chicago area)I am just going by how everyone is responding to this thread. But New England seems to be the worst for stock, I don't know what the problem is. I just hope it gets corrected soon. I wouldn't mind getting some clones before Christmas:D

Things in the mid-west seem to be getting a little better. I just hit one of my local Wal-Mart Super Centers in Kansas City and finally found the Obi-Wan Pilot figure. They only had two and I bought both. One to open and one to squirrel away. I think I have had this figure in my hands for about an hour straight after opening it. It is the best hands down Obi-Wan or ROTS figure yet. Anakin Evoloutions is a close second. It amazes me that Hasbro can put out crap figure after crap figure then bust this little gem out of their a**es.:confused: The Wal-Mart also had tons of Anakin Evoloutions sets (which I already had picked up at K-Mart weeks ago. These were the corrected sets with the ROTS Anakin having his scar. The one I bought from K-Mart was scarless.:mad: ) They also had tons of the 500th Vader and at least 100 Bacara's. Unfortunately no Shock Trooper repaints. If anybody is interested Toys R Us amazingly has the market cornered on the current Unleashed set. I have seen all three and was impressed by none. The paint applications were really sloppy and the cards were all bent to hell. I almost bought the Vader but I can't get over how retarted his half dangling off the staircase pose looks.
One other point of interest I saw today was not at this Wal-Mart Super Center but at a couple of other regular sized Wal-Marts. They had these little signs on the Star Wars figure pegs and kick plates that said "Last Chance To Buy!". I asked one of the employees what was up with the signs and they just shrugged. Has anybody else seen this?

Does anyone know when the stores will complete their "resets?"

I'm getting annoyed that the stores are empty by me, and that they aren't going to put anything new out until they complete the resets... or at least that's what they tell me. If they aren't going to be done until the end of the week, then I'll just chillax till then, but if they're already done, and they STILL don't have crap, I'm gonna get more annoyed.

THE CHOSENONE
08-02-2005, 06:35 PM
Yeah when I saw them at TRU I had to wipe my eyes a couple of times before reality set in and accepted that I was actually looking at them. Other than the Unleashed line TRU has Jack and Shi* and Jack just left town. Although one of my informant TRU employees claims that new stuff is on the way and we should see it in a couple of weeks. I'll believe it when I see it. Other than the Anakin Evo set and Darth 500 Target has been pretty awful as well. Give me a heads up Junky if you see any of the Shock Troopers in your travels. I'll do the same for you if your on the hunt for anything.

Hey Jaxx most of the Target stores around me have completed their resets and still don't have anything. The only thing they seem to be putting out is 500 Vader and Anakin Evo sets. Trust me the Target employees are getting as anoyed as you are. I was talking to one today and the woman told me that 90% of questions in the toy dept. on the phone or in person are regards to ROTS figures. Wal-Marts in my area only seem to be shrinking their sections. No resets to be seen at all.

I couldn't agree more vader68! I'm in CT too and there's almost nothing. I did find the Anakin Evolutions and 500th Vader but that's about it. Where are you located? I have the entire western area covered, Danbury to Waterbury.

I am in Stratford, so I have Bridgeport,Trumbul, Stratford, Milford and Orange covered. That is 2 walmarts, 2 Targets, and 1 ToysRus. I don't even bother with the Toyworks at the Malls anymore,they never have more then 2 or 3 pegs of figures.I don't understand what the problem is here, but it is really frustrating.:mad:

Hello,

Houston, Texas here...

all the Targets in the area began their resets on Monday and most of them have finished up today.

500th Vadar was readily available

Evolutions with scarred anakin

Jedi vs Sith battle packs

3 pack red and blue clone deluxe, as far as the blue one is concerned 2 per case, but not a hasbro box some target box

Tarkin case in limited at selected targets, Bacara box readily available and Utapuan box as well

All the new unleashed has hit at limited Targets, evenly allocated, peg warmer seems to be Asajj Ventress.

Also our TRU are getting these repacked two packs of ROTS figs, one of the combinations is with the TE Tank Gunner.

Hope this helps for those in this area...

Good Luck, lol

Hey Junky check the TRU by Bannister Mall and the TRU by Oak Park Mall. That is where i've seen the Unleashed stuff. Thanks for the heads up on the Shock Troopers. I'll keep my eyes peeled for the Black Pilot and the Anakin variant.

Found a fresh case of new figures on a pallete at the Salinas Walmart this weekend. Only one Obi-Wan Pilot (#55) and one AT-RT Driver (#54) in the box. The rest were clone repaints, Vaders, and some Grevious. I was suprised there was no Mustafar Sentry (#56). Only one fig away from a complete set. (For now anyway.)

I think this case has been hitting my local WMs (UT). I found a ton of AT-RT and OB1 pilots last night with several Vaders and actually a couple of Maces. No #56, though. That's all I'm looking for at the moment, along with the Clone evo. pack.

Just today i found 500th Vader, Anakin Evolution, and the Sith vs. Jedi battle pack. First time i had seen them but a fellow SSG member (msjedi) found them all prior to me, in the case of the battle pack up to two weeks earlier than i had. Its probably safe to say that i live in the slower part of town, in terms of getting new product in.

Found 500th vader, Jedi VS Sith & Anakin Evolutions at Target tonight. I had seen the Evo and VS at K-Mart a while back, but this is the first time I have seen it anywhere else, and the first 500th Vader. Everywhere else, the pegs had nothing new. At this point I don't know if the stores and Hasbro aren't responding or if I'm being beaten by kids, collectors and... scalpers. Oh, well. They'll come when they come, but aside from the Evolutions set that I have already taken back, I haven't found/bought anything new in over a month.

Had 51-53 and filled the pegs at the Target in Everet, MA with a bunch of 1-44. Got in a bunch of Starfighters, Tri Fighters and Grievous Bikes. I picked up Zett and Antilles, but passed on the Warrior. Target also raised the price of figs to $5.89. Cost of fuel = Transportation and they actually use it to make plastic. Still have not bought playsets or vehicles as I want to pick them up when they go on clearance.

Well another trip to Walmart and Target, and another day of dissapointment. I hit 2 Walmarts and 1 Target this morning and still there was nothing. The only thing 1 Walmart had was a fresh supply of lightsabers. They had about 30 out on the shelves. Target was an intersting experience, the employees were stocking and moving around the entire toy department, and I counted 3 girls on cell phones talking about Star Wars figs, and how they had nothing and the employees did not know what they had yet. Whether they were scalpers or just wives/girlfriends calling I am not sure.But they were circling the pallets in the aisles like sharks circling their prey. It was quite funny. But anyway, here in Connecticut the drought continues for figs. Still nothing since before the Tarkin wave. I don't know what else to do, I am just getting so frustrated. Not to mention the fact every time I go I have to drag out my 20 month old twins, and five year old with me because I am a stay at home Dad. It is not like I can just run in to check by myself. I am starting to get very aggravated. :mad:

I actually found 2 Anakin(mustafar #50) today at KB and bought those. They had 2 Bacara's but no sign of anything else. Now all I need is Tarkin from the older waves. I've only seen that wave once though. I've seen the Ani/Bacara wave twice including the today. I have everything but # 45, 51-53, 56, red guards, and black clone pilots. I found the shocktroopers a week or two ago at walmart and picked up 2 along with 1 green commander. I have no need for more than that. I painted 2 super articulated clones to be shocktroopers a while ago so i only needed 2 more to have the 4 i wanted. As for the green commander, i might pick up another sometimes for my Kashyyyk Diorama i'm going to start soon but for now, I'm leaving them for other people to find. I know how hard it is to find things so I'm not one to buy up stuff when i see it even it i rarely see it.

WalMart in Gilroy, CA had the largest section of new figures I have seen in a long time. They had pegs and pegs of AT-RT Driver (#54), Obi-Wan Pilot (#55) and Mustafar Sentry (#56). It was quite refreshing to see SO much new product. I didn't see any of the re-paint clones. I don't plan on getting those or the last 12 repaint figures.

So now that I have #56, my ROTS collection is complete.

Happy hunting all!

I live in Georgia, metro area. I haven't found stuff too often until the last week and I've found alot. The last time before then was at least a month ago. Targets suck around here, I got the Ani Evolution set and I've seen numerous 500 Vaders but I'm not ready to pick that up yet. I haven't seen a new figure there in ages. Everyone is talking about finding new stuff there and all the Targets in my area have done their resets and nothing new. I really want the red royal guards but no luck yet.

also some of the TRU in the area are receiving the repaints of the clone pilots and commanders along with the Bacara case assortment of figs.

all of the TRU so far have received the green variation 3 pack clone deluxe.

Nothing, but I do like the fact that there is interest in the figures. It seems like with the EPII figures, there was a lot sitting around at my store, at least now they are moving fairly well, even though they keep putting new figures in with older figures. We got some of the Vaders in, which delighted kids and parents.

Finally found the new Unleashed figures at TRU today...unfortunately, they had no Palpy/Yoda's, and since Amazon STILL hasn't shipped my order, I was pretty disappointed. Went to Target this evening, and found just one Asajj sitting on the shelf. :(

Also in TRU, I found remnants of the Bacara case, but Anakins were all gone. Only had the white clones, as this wasn't the repaints case. However, someone had stashed two Bacara's and 10 clones on the bottom shelf behind some 12" OTC Luke's - which I promptly put back on the pegs. :evil: They had one case of the deluxe figs, with one clone 3-pack w/ green clone, but I left these, too. Still no sign of the AT-RT driver or the clone repaints - thanks to ebay, I got one Shocktrooper for under $16 (not too bad considering what shiping costs online from amazon), so at least I've got ONE of them.

I actually found 5 AT-RT drivers at Wal-Mart two days ago, and also Obi-Wan Red leader. One of the AT-RT drivers had a distinctively different helmet--he had a white "snout," for lack of a better description. Also saw a few SA clones and a couple of AT-TE gunners. Still no shock troopers though.

The only way that I've found anything over the Tarkin wave was by someone giving me a hand. And I'm extremely thankful for that!

I have yet to have any luck when looking on my own. I still haven't seen ANY of the Antilles wave, none of the AT-RT wave (except what I was helped out with, but I still don't have the Mustafar Sentry... it wasn't being shipped at the time I got my figures), I haven't seen Tarkin wave since I was lucky enough to find it one time, none of the all black Clone Pilots, and none of the Ani w/ Sith eyes.
Here's another issue... it seems that all of the stores (except TRU by me) have price tags/stickers for the Evolutions, 500th Vader, and Battlepacks. The problem is that there are never any of these items on the shelves. Instead, you have a lot of BARC speeders and Boga's where the Evolutions and Battlepacks are supposed to be. You have a lot of Battle Areneas where the 500th Vader is supposed to be. Does this mean that the stores have yet to get them in?
Here's another question: is the Ani Evolution set the only one to come out yet???
My problem, I'm guessing, is that I can't get to the stores when they open. By the time my lunch rolls around, all of the figures are gone! That really annoys me.
It just seems that, unless you're a part time employee, a student, or an employee of a store, or unless you are one of those that hangs out, waiting for the store to open on a daily basis, or huddles around a pallet at 2AM, you just can't find anything...(in all cases, except the scalpers that blitzkrieg the stores at open time, y'all are pretty lucky)... but us folks who have the 9-5 (not the 9-5 in a retail store) are S.O.L.
I really don't want to buy from the secondary market...:cry:

Jaxx consider yourself lucky with what you have. I am in the same boat as you, but have no one to help me find things. When I started this thread, I had found nothing before Tarkin wave, and it is still the same. I have been to stores shortly after opening, and shortly before closing, and it has not changed. I can't find a thing. I live in connecticut and the 2 Targets,2 Walmarts, and 1Toysrus that I go to have nothing. Is Woodbridge near Chicago? My Dad lives in Naperville, and when I went out there in June to see ROTS, I checked some Walmarts,Targets, and ToysRus out there and they had no stock either. I don't no what else to do, and like you I will not pay secondary prices. I shouldn't have to.

What I would do is call the store since walmart opens at 7 and tru opens at 10 and they will usuallly hold stuff until closing. Well I have to call a few stores to see if I can get my shocktroopers and maybe take another quick run out.

I think that its a major distribution problem as well. Its weird though, how we search for these figures and it can grow to be such a hasstle. My little brother whos 9 went to a Toys R Us during the middle of the day, around 6:30 ish here in Detroit and walks out with Ani # 50 and Obi # 55. He doesnt understand how rare they are. I went thru hell to find those Obi's. When I found 2, it was such a major relief that I finally found them. When the stock over here in Michigan, you better be there, cause its a miracle if they get off their lazy a**es to do it again with in a day or two of stocking.

There's a Wal*Mart by me (in Darien/Downers Grove area) that, as of the end of last week, hasen't even done their reset yet. They still have this big ol' wall for Star Wars, and like 5 figures on the pegs. They have NO tags for the Evolutions, Battlepacks, 500th Vader, or Titanium sets. They haven't received any new figures for quite some time. No one there can give me a reason as to why.
Targets in my immediate area have been through their resets, and regularly get shipments in, but there are no Evolutions, Battlepacks, 500th Vaders, or figures over 44 there. None of the repaints have made it there yet either.
The TRUs by me have received a lot of shipments of Galactic Heros (that aren't selling), but no new figures.

I found 500th Vader at Target the other day, but I passed. I have this sick theory: If I can find it, it can't be that hard to find... I have to end that theory... not a good idea at all. :stupid:

That theory will get you screwed over. But I think like that sometimes. That's why I passed up on Tarkin, not that I was too crazy about getting him. But I never saw that wave again after spotting plenty at a local Target.
I've seen a fair number of 500th Vader, but I would snap it up the next time you see it because you never know.

After wandering in the wilderness for MONTHS, tonight I found the Basic figure oasis. And part of it was by accident.

On my toy run, I found (At Wal-Mart) #51-53. I skipped Lucas' kid, though it's a solid looking figure. On the way home, I went to the grocery store and they were out of Frankenberry! So, I had to run to another Wal-Mart, a Super WM. There they had pegs full all the way up to #56! I Had Obi-Wan Pilot so I grabbed the AT-RT Driver (They had at least 6). Save for the re-paints, I'm all caught up and have seen all the basic figures.

Also, lots of green variant Clone 3 packs, Ani Evolutions and Wookie-copters out there too.

Sounds like a nice solid run to WM, wish mine were that stacked.

^ It's been a loooooooong dry spell though. Target has the Evo's, 3 packs and 500 Vaders, but they haven't had any Basic figures above the mid 40's in months.

BTW, I forgot to mention that the Super Wal-mart had just re-set their toy aisle. Keep an eye on your local WM's, if they re-set, that probably means new figures!

DarthQuack
08-10-2005, 11:18 PM
What Evo's do they have and do they have many? I would be willing to pay you if you could get them.

08-10-2005, 11:39 PM
The only Evo. set ot be released thus far in the Anakin/Vader. The other two are the Sith(Dooku, Maul, Palps) and Troopers(E2 clone, E3 clone and sandtropper) WIll contain variants of the clones as well.

not always true about wm resets and getting new stuff, at least not around here in k.c. area anyway. i have been to 4 of my wm's and the resets are done or at least the sw toys. no new toys and in some cases the 20 or so pegs of old figures are now shoved into 5 or 6 pegs which nobody will buy so that means no new orders. the only thing good about the resets i have seen is the sw legos have been marked down considerably. but i don't collect the legos for lack of funds.

Target has finished resetting by me, they had (I counted) 18 figures on the pegs mostly nemo warriors. They had them spread around, so 1 was on each peg. The rest of the pegs were empty. And nobody new anything about when new stuff was coming. The good news was they had 5 Jedi/Sith battlepacks, so I finally picked one up. Walmart had also finished resetting, and they had 3 clone packs(white), so I finally got one of those too. Now I just need the color variations. They didn't have much else.

Has anyone seen the black Clone Pilot yet? What wave is it supposed to be shipped in? I've only seen massive amounts of the white and gray one. I'd looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove to find that one!!!!

along with the antilles wave, the sith eye ani, and #56.... but oh well. it seems like i'll never find them. :frus:

Well I finally have 1-56. On saturday I had 1-53, I went to WM, I was looking at the Star Wars stuff and they only had peg warmers. I was leaving the toy area and I say a cart with boxes. There was a Star War box just sitting there already opened. So I looked in it. There were only about half of the figures left. So I grabbed the first one and it was crispy Anikan. I was like great more figures that I already have. The I look at the next one and it was the ATRT driver. I quickly grabbed it and started taking all of the figures out of the box. I ened up getting 54, 55, 56. There was only one of each. But sadly no repaints. I thing that someone grabbed those ones before me. But I was very happy. Now I finally have 1 - 56. Now just the repaints to go and the new 12.

jimmymiro12
08-11-2005, 04:32 PM
Went to another Walmart no repaints. Saw zett, antillies and the warrior guy that I can't remeber the name of. Just so you know even if there is a box with crispy anikan and the other figures doesn't mean there are any repaints. I went through a box and found #6 but the original white one.

could not beleive my eyes this morning at one of the 6 wm's that go to, i found tarkin wave #45,#46,#47 and the antilles wave #51,#52, #53, and #55, #56 & 3 red guards, the two waves that i drove everywhere looking for for 2 months, all in one store!! they actually moved all the peg warmers to a center aisle display and put the new stuff in the aisle. i already have all of these but was going to pick up the tarkin wave to trade with anyone having trouble finding these, but a guy came up and starting looking & i asked him which ones he needed and he said tarkin wave, so i gave him all three of the ones i had, as for there was nomore. i said i was looking for the a clone pilot and anakin variants. he said he had 3 clone pilots varaints because he ordered a case from EE. i asked, since i just gave him 3 figs he needed to finish, if he would sell or trade for one and he said no, so much for trying to help somebody out!:ermm:

Well... I was in a Target today on my lunch break. I found the Jedi v Sith battlepack. :D F I N A L L Y ! ! ! ! !:D
Also, I saw a Target exclusive Clone Trooper on the clearance pegs for like $4. I was going for it... it was like I was in slow-mo or something. This guy was a little closer to the clearance pegs than I was, and, sure enough, that's the ONE THING HE WENT FOR! It would have been nice to pick an extra one up for that price! (the only way I knew how much it was is because I saw the price tag when it was in his hand).

While vacationing in Lancaster, PA, I came across the Evil Eyes Anakin :twisted: as well as one set of the Tarkin wave (Lancaster Wal-Mart). Upon my return to New Jersey, I picked up #56 from my local comic store and stumbled upon the Black Clone Pilot and Green Clone Commander at my local TRU. I recently read that the color variants were being seen at TRU. What luck! Anyway, the long elusive red clone is the last on my wish list...that is, until 57+ start shipping!

vader68
08-12-2005, 09:40 PM
Ok so let me get this straight. There is a Clone repaint #6 that is red (also known as the shock trooper)
A green Clone commander #33, A black clone pilot, and of course the clone 3 packs that are different colors.Am I missing any other clone variations that are out there? Do I have these all correct? If not someone please correct me.

Hellboy
08-12-2005, 10:11 PM
The only variation you didn't mention is the #6 repaint of the 501st Clone Trooper. These are exclusive to the K-Mart 5-pack which includes three Clones. They're also going to make a 501st Clone out of the #41 SA mold later on so unless you're looking to have every variation you could get away with passing the 5-pack up and waiting for the superior SA 501st Clone repaint.

vader68
08-12-2005, 11:08 PM
Thanks for the info Hellboy, but I don't remember hearing about he Kmart 5 pack. Is that the Jedi Temple set with Anakin and the clone pilot?

Found two Green Clone Commanders in TRU this morning. Picked up one and left the other. No sign of the Shocktrooper (glad I snagged one cheap off of ebay), but they had tons of regular white #6 Clones - my guess is they got one case with #54 & #55, Vader, Greivous, and the Clone repaints, but several of the Ani/Bacara cases that still have the white clones w/ Vader. Went to Target and finally saw the Jedi vs. Sith battlepack. Even though Anakin and Asajj are new figures, I passed on it.

Getting extremely frustrated with the Unleashed figures. I pre-ordered Ventress and Yoda/Palpy on Amazon, but only received Ventress (which I had ordered a week LATER!) All week, the only Unleashed I've found in stores are Ani, Obi, and Ventress, save for two Vaders I saw only last week at a TRU. The only place I've seen Yoda/Palpy was in a flea market (caved in and bought the only Black Pilot the guy had), and at a comic shop - both places selling it between $25-30. As much as I want it, there's no way I'm spending twice as much. Unfortunately, the stores haven't put out any more Unleashed since last weekend, and Amazon seems to have screwed me out of my figure, unless they're actually gonna get more in. I assume these are packed evenly, but it's frustrating to know I missed out on this in TRU by a matter of hours.

Went to Target and scored a Red Guard today. That is the first I've ever seen one. That was the only new figure they had. That is the second time I've missed out on the new case. They had a Gunner the other day which they had not had in ages so I knew they must have put new figures out but sold the rest of them. Today was the same case, only a Red Guard left with an abundance of peg warmers. I'm glad I got there when I did because I went back to recheck and there were two guys looking through them.
