OK, I'm thinking about donating some un-returnable MOMC figures to Toys for Tots. According to the TfT website, Burbank has only two donation centers: TRU and "The God Store". If I give these to the "God Store", will they deem them "evil" and throw them away? If I give them to TRU, will their greasy employees (Dazed and Confused) or incoming hoarders (the toy bin is next to the front door) swipe them? Decisions decisions...

For you JLU fans, be on the look out for the Gorilla Grodd 6 pack. I just picked one up from La Cienega Target today. I almost passed it up, thinking it was the Lava Doomday 6 pack (same packaging).

darkagent, were there any more of that set at that particular store?

Speck, I donated some figures at the Los Feliz TRU Toys for Tots bin and they were still there a week after I had put them in.

They had about 5 more sets when I left this morning. The price would not come up at the register, so the cashier asked me for the price. I was being a good guy, so I told him $19.99. He then told me, he would have accepted any price I told him.

If you donate figures, I suggest you mangle the bubble or card just enough to deter scumbags, kids don't care about MOMC anyway.


Also, you can donate toys to most fire departments who have their own program, and CHiPs for Kids takes toys at any CHP center (including the one in Glendale on Central).

Glendale Target had a Hunt for Grievous BP, and some Bespin BPs.

Got two Hawkbat clones yesterday. Took the robes and put them on two Evolution yellow clones. 100% better. Looks sleeker and more kick-***. (The Hawkbat clone's body seems slightly twisted and frumpy looking, a little like the gunner's even though it's essentially an Evo body).

The wave 8 R2 unit wants to make me slap a #24 on it and declare it a Kobe Bryant droid. Those colors look awfully like Lakers colors.

WM Duarte - R2-B1 x2, wave 7 remnants Deadyen and R2, SWTF Snowspeeder/Luke x3 (this thing looked so kibbly I passed).

Target Duarte - SL clean white Sandtrooper, Anakin/Assassin Droid Comic Pack (the latter of which I bought).

TRU Monrovia - Wave 8 remnants: Padme x2, Droideka x2, Clone Trainee. I bought the Clone and a Droideka, another collector got the other Droideka, neither of us bought the Padmes.

Droideka is nothing to write home about, the shield is way too small and the tray bends the arm in a way it's not designed to which warps it. Anakin/Assassin Droid is alright, the paint and sculpt on the droid is really good, they should use that limb design for Battle Droids even if it means fattening up the limbs a little. Clone Trainee is alright, looks good in the armor, likeness is dead on, fair articulation though leaving out the super shoulders and ankles was dubious.

Now my stash list is looking sweet...

McQuarrie Concept Snowtrooper

I've got to say, that I think the Anakn/Assassin Driod comic pack has got to be the best one so far. The Anakin is pretty good and the Assassin Droid is super articulated. :thumbsup:

I'm a little disappointed in the Clone Trooper. I think it would have been perfect if it had the same ball jointed shoulders and ankles, like Jango Fett does. Heck, I'd settle for the left foot being straight (not preposed) like the right one. As it is now, you've got to put him in a weird stance just to stand up straight.

I went to Glendale on Sunday and they around 10 left. La Cienega which had tons of them a couple weeks ago, seems to already be sold out. So if you're waiting for them to go on clearance, I wouldn't. They'll probably be gone in no time.

I was gobsmacked this AM in the parking lot of Los Feliz TRU. As I walked to the store, a white POS car caught my eye. From a distance, it looked like the automobile of a hoarder, filled to the windows with trash & detritus. Upon closer inspection, it was a scalper car!

It had three of those huge Comic Con WB canvas bags stuffed full with toys, mostly Star Wars Potato Heads. The bags filled the entire back seat & passenger seat. Obviously, someone had been a busy little scalper! As I exited the store, the car was rapidly pulling away and I didn't get a look at the driver. Plenty of other stores to ravage, I guess --

TRU was deader than dead, BTW.

When I got to Target a bit after 9, they still had a bunch of the AT-RT packs and one GH Cinema (DS Assault) and one ARC-170. Otherwise, bare shelves. I also relocated the SL to their proper pegs, and there was enough room for all of them with the Vader hooked right up front... leaving TONS of peg space for TAC.

Hopefully.

If the stockers actually use their scanners properly.

I forgot to check, but there may still be a Darth Vader behind the Unleashed BPs, for the low-low price of $9.99! Yep, someone returned another coin album Vader recently, probably for the full price too since they're back in the system. I moved it away from the basics since nobody in their right mind would buy it, and it'd stink if some clueless parent dropped $3 extra on a crappy Vader.

The Target exclusives are spread out pretty erratically around the San Gabriel Valley. Some stores have the ARC170 Elite Squad packs in great numbers(Pico Rivera), others had none out, though plenty in the stockroom(Baldwin Park), and some had a few out (Commerce). A few had the AT-RTs, but I can't remember which. A few had the ARC170 fighter, and Pico Rivera had at least a half dozen. Most had the Ultimate Battlepacks, though generally between 3 and 10 now as opposed to two dozen.

I love how target releases 5 exclusives at once -like everyone has the $ and/or room for them all at once.
the shuttle was only $60 j. speck. An enormous vehicle and 2 decent figures is not to shabby for that price. Although, one could argue that the UBPs are a better value with what you get. Whatever, just a bunch of repainted boring repacks. Personally, I've wanted a shuttle ever since i was 8 yrs. old and my fantasy became true last year. Not just any shuttle, the Imperial shuttle!!!!!!!!

Jango Speck
12-05-2007, 10:27 AM
Oops, I was thinking of the TRU AT-AT and the Target Shuttle and was remembering how I missed both the first time around. $60 was a decent price I suppose. The funny thing now is the exclusive prices: $29.99 for ARC-170, $35 for Tie Bomber, $49 for UBP- these would have been more expensive had they been a TRU exclusive.

No doubt! Burbank Target didn't really have anything but more Legends, and old Legends at that (still no Evo-mold Sandies). I did my OCD repegging thing and stood a bunch of extra SLs on the shelf below the pegs, leaving tons of room for TAC. Someone came by and scanned both types of pegs, and went to grab the shelved figures so I mentioned that there were too many for those pegs (thinking she might try to stuff 'em on the TAC like the overnight people do), but she was just removing 'em! Hey, someone did the right thing for a change :)

There was a Hermi Odle, Kybuck, and an UGH McChewie as "new" arrivals in TAC. Not sure if there were any more before I got there, but the pegs were pretty packed. A couple GIJoe remnants says I probably missed some new goodies there. There's a lot more UBPs and more ARC-170s, but the endcap's been retagged for mostly just UBPs and blasters.

Picked up a Deluxe Will from POTC, and there were some new CARS too: got Fred & the helicopter! Also some new 2-packs like Mr. & Mrs. The King and the Rusty/Dusty set, but the two I want--Mia & Tia and PT & Flik--were naturally absent. Ah well!

You didn't miss anything Toon. I saw you walking into the store as I was paying for a arc 170 pilots battlepack. There were only 2 joes on the pegs and the rest as you described it.

Just the McSnowie and McRebel to go for all the McQuarries!

Nothing new at Burbank Target but some more old Legends. After seeing an employee do it right yesterday, this morning it was back to "everything on TAC pegs, nothing on SL". There's 2 pegs of Mace, three Galactic Marines, and one Vaporator Luke left in TAC, I think. Pretty sad.

Did a target run after class tonight, long beach, seal beach...all of them are out of the Hoth and Endor sets...don't know if they are going to be restocking them. Had the tie bomber, arc battlepacks by the tons, arc ship and some prequel at-st lookin thing.

Singles...same as walmart down here, seems like SL wave 2 is the only thing they are getting in at the moment and more than they need to boot!

Historically, how long are the Target exclusives normally available? I'm back on the weekend but with the family in tow, so no extra room in the suitcases, but my next work trip is not until late January. Based on past experience, what are my chances of still finding the exclusives then?

Not sure if it's the same for the whole wave, but McSolo and the Ewoks are limited to 1 each.

But there's that handy free shipping/20%-off code (two, really!) so place a couple orders to get what you want. I just got 2 each of McSolo & the Ewoks. Hadn't seen the Ewoks in stores yet, and extra McSolos are great! So I'll have 3 boxes of 2 figures each coming in the next few weeks. :p

Maybe the AOTC wave will pop up again, or the repaints, so I can finish off everything today :D

4 Training Clones with snap-on armor
1 Jango from his apartment on Kamino
2 red Naboo trooper guys

I stashed some Cars at Los Feliz thinking that Speck might need them but I guess not. Anyhow, they were Dinoco Helicopter, Andretti and Cartrip. PM me if you want them.

Darkagent, I guess I took too long to get to the stash you left for me but no worries since I found most of those cars at other stores.

I stopped by Eagle Rock Target since I hadn't been there in about a month and a half...nice to know that it's still pretty bleak for SW figures. La Brea is slightly better as they've sold most of the pegwarmers and got in the TC-14 assortment.

Glendale Lego store has some of the new SW sets - AT-AP plus the Stormie and Rebels army builder packs. I bought one each of the latter two.

I finally found the JLU Grodd set at La Cienega Target. There were still 2 sets when I left and they're still not scanning in the system.

At the Target on Jefferson Culver City this morning got there at 8.04am there was already someone at the Star Wars so I started to let him do his thing, he took the whole wave 9 box that had been put out then moved over to the hot wheels and took what he could carry. I have the wave but its frustrating to see these things happen when you know he is going to scalp them. I would rather have got there and found nothing.
They did have an end cap with battle Packs marked down to 17.98 and I saw 4 ARC-170 ships.

Figures, I was at Glendale Target at closing on Saturday 10:30 pm-ish and nothing new. I avoid that mall Target, but had to go to the mall, but will only go late at night.
In the Cars section I moved about 20 diecast airplanes off the Cars pegs to make a point how empty it was (Only 1 Lizzie on the pegs, period.). There were about 5 employees cleaning up, putting out stock, but no one ever asked me if they could help. I thought they might since I looked like I couldn't find what I wanted. I didn't see any boxes of SW or Cars on pallets at that point. They have that "Collectible" stocking disclaimer, so I didn't dare ask.

They did have 6 Hoth UBP's though. They were on the endcap over the Miniatures 59.99 pricetag, which made it look like that was the price. I imagine that is why they are still there. They rang up 49.00 though.

Got my Hasbrotoyshop order today (ordered last week). I just ordered one Holo Vader and one Hawkbat Clone. The packaging has got to be the worst and wasteful yet. I received the two figures in a huge box (22"x16.5"x8") with air packs for "cushioning". Of course this did not stop the figures from moving around in the box. Needless to say, the figures' cards were all crushed. Luckily, I was going to open them anyways.

I got another Padme Black Leather today at TRU. I only want 1 and now have 2, but I will keep buying her until I am satisfied with the paint job I want - while returning the rest.

At the same time, my TRU said they weren't getting much in the way of SW and that the vendor (Hasbro) wasn't shipping to them. Curious.

The pegs, and TRU has a lot of them for SW, were quite empty of everything, whether it be TAC or Saga Lengends. However, what remained was almost entirely SL I think, with some Wave 4 TAC.

Target was full to the end of every peg with SL.

Both stores had new Deluxe Waves of Transformers including both versions of BumbleBee.

Oh. Target is all sold-out of the Ultimate Endor Battle Pack and actually has like 5 Hoth sets remaining.

There's nothing like trying to stash while store employees are walking around throughout the store! :thumbsup: Just ask JT how tough it can be at our local stores.No kidding! If you ever wanted to know what it feels like to be the focus of a sloppy FBI sting while in a crowded bar, just try stashing a figure in the Los Feliz/Hollywood area.


Seriously! I went to housewares section because there were employees EVERYWHERE around the toy department, spilling out into other departments in the area!I'm sure! I try to choose departments that have a deep set of product which isn't likely to be disturbed too much, my earliest stashes were utter failures because the product was moving too fast and someone found it. (or it was product nobody wanted and went unclaimed :p) The pet department's way out, by the way.

Toys R Us had the AOTC Jedi Starfighter with the HYPERSPACE RING this morning as they opened early at 7am.

No one was there to buy any. It's cool, but I don't want this one myself. Anyway, there was a line of about 8 people all for X-box and Guitar Hero stuff. One fellow collector I knew went to Star Wars but he didn't buy anything.

I finished Wave 7.5 and got 2 more red uniformed Naboo soldiers and a HawkBat Cone for a friend of mine who's amassing them.

There was nothing else new there. Now I only need to find some Red Training Uniform Clones from Wave 8 and I'm done for the year (unless the AT-AP and Grievous fighter make it out somehow).

Glendale Target 8AM -- the stash I promised Turbowars was compromised (sorry, TW, unless you were able to get it last night).

Otherwise, it was a mishmash of Waves 4-7, including a McFett & Starkiller (grabbed by another collector). Good stuff for the diorama crowd-fillers out there. :)

Walmart LB - Wave 1 thru 4 and lots of SL with Evo sandie

Target Cerritos - NOTHING

Target Cerritos2 - NOTHING, they literally still have wave one figs, the same ones since wave one came out. NO endcaps with battle packs and vehicles either. I HATE this target. I'm pretty sure EVERYTHING goes out the back door at this one

Target LB - 3 figures hanging on the pegs but they did have 3 Hoth super battle packs

Target Seal Beach - nothing but SL figs, endcap ransacked

TRU Cerritos - SL only

I think I'll be tracking down a couple of those Joes myself, Flash in particular (ah, for the good ol' days before he and Stalker got promoted to sergeant!) and possibly Destro and a Crimson Guard. Maybe an extra Snake Eyes. :P

Got to Target late this morning, nothing as usual. They'd put a bunch of crappy Jedi Vs Sidious BPs on the endcap where ARC-170 BPs should be (still haven't seen those in the wild). Tons of old Legends. This time I just filled the proper Legends pegs and put all the rest in nice neat rows behind the lone electronic lightsaber on the shelf below. Undoubtedly those nice neat rows will be knocked over and spread out across the entire aisle by day's end, leading to them being put back on the nearly-empty TAC pegs overnight with no chance of new TAC in the morning.

Haven't seen 7.5 or 8 in-store yet! Gonna take forever to find 3 R2-B1s & McRebels.

Went to LF TRU this morning and they had the ObiWan Jedi Starfighter with Hyperspace ring. I can't believe they want $35 for that, and it doesn't even come with a figure. I then stopped by WalMart and picked up a set of the Max Rebo band. They had plenty on the shelf. They also had a lot of comic 2 packs. Unfortunately, they weren't the exclusives. :(

HTS uses the USPS. Whether you have to be at home or not really depends on your letter carrier. My weekday carrier leaves packages on my doorstep but the Saturday carrier doesn't. Even if you're not home and they leave you the slip that says you have to go to the post office for pickup, you can actually schedule another delivery on the USPS site.

Picked up the Hyperspace Ring Jedi Starfighter last night at Los Feliz TRU. Too expensive at 34.99, but I had a $25 gift card to cushion the blow.
At Celebration, Hasbro had it labeled with a price of 29.99
I don't know why TRU likes to hike prices like that. They would sell more and have a better store if the were consistent with other major retailers. To me TRU is still a discount store like Target etc, they just sell toys only. Oh well.

There are pics in the Appropriate thread...

Los Feliz also had Anakin .45 scale MR sabers, enclosed in the plastic security cases like video games. They were in the Star Wars aisle and 29.99.
Also had Clone Trooper Bobble Head. Tag read Darth Vader Bobble Head, but I only saw 3 Clones.
Also bought a lone fireside Padme, a little bent along the edge. That was the only new figure there.

Deoxy, even if you missed the delivery, I believe the post office holds packages for you for at least a week if not 2 weeks and before they send the package back, they're supposed to put a "final notice" slip in your mailbox so worry not, you'll get your McHans/Snowies. Tycho sent me a Masterpiece Starscream recently and I missed the delivery and didn't get to pick it up until 3 or 4 days later and during that time, I didn't get any more notices so don't worry, even if you missed the delivery, the figures will be waiting for you at the post office. If you do end up having to pick them up, just make sure you bring the slip along with your driver's license.

I really like the new Clone Wars Anakin figure. The Jedi Starfighter is pretty much the same as the other Jedi Starfighters. The AT-TP is really cool, but I don't know if it's worth it at $40. I just thought that it would be a little bigger for that price. The set also comes with 2 Shocktroopers.

The Indy sets look cool. So far I've only built the Motorcyle Chase set. I just love the Indy figure. He comes with gun, whip, and pouch/messenger bag.

Wow! Those are great. I really like the stormtroopers. They look like comic pack figures.
Like you said, the N. Kidman head is a perfect match with the LJ body and a much better face sculpt and detail. This will sound weird, but her whole body proportions improved and she even looks hot. I might have to get that NK Compass figure to do the same.
The clone in training gear with better legs is also a good upgrade which I'm going to try. :thumbsup:

Basically all the Force Unleashed figures are one-per-case, including the army builders, while retread crap like C3PO w/Salacious, Biggs and See Through Anakin will be tacked on and clogging up the pegs for sure. I've been thinking about seriously scaling down on Hasbro next year. Assortments like this will make it that much easier.

Picked up the LEGO Army Builder sets today at Los Feliz TRU - 1x Rebel & 2x Stormies. They also had all four of the new Indiana Jones sets (Motorcycle Chase, the Truck Chase, Well of the Souls and the Temple Set) Temple set looked very cool. I also saw all the new SW Legos (Force Unleashed Rogue Shadow, the AT-AP, Hailfire Droid/Spider Droid and the Clone Wars Anakin Starfighter).

No new Hasbro SW anywhere today.

I got Hasbro junk: 2 McSolos, 2 Ewoks, 2 McSnowies. Really dig the McSnowie but for the skinny legs. Solo's still in need of work. The Ewoks are super cool, looking forward to customizing them!

Only some AOTCs, R2-B1s, and a couple other odds & ends (and maybe a 3rd McSnowie...) and I'll be done.

Yeah, that Wave 2 assortment stinks! You'd think the stormies and/or the Shadow Guard would be 2 per, at least.

EDIT for Wednesday morning: No new SW at Burbank Target. TONS of ARC-170s, and a few Bombers still on the overhead shelf. One set of the Firefly GI Joe wave... and some JLU singles! Blue Devil was sittin on the front, so I grabbed him. He has possibly the WORST paint job I've ever seen on a JLU figure. "Sloppy" is an understatement. I'll hang on until I find a better one, or just try to fix it myself. There were two Zatannas, but I can't yet bring myself to buy her. Nice that she has a wand, but she can't hold it far as I can tell. And the paint on her eyes is terrible, makes the worst Mara Jade eyes look almost acceptable.

City Of hawthorne TRU: Found the new DC Universe figures. Bought Penguin, Orion, and Red Tornado. Passed on Classic Bats and Etrigan.
Target Redondo beach: nothing good
Target Manhattan beach: Nothing good
Torrance TRU: Nothing, but I spoke to the hottest hasbro rep I've ever seen in my life.
Torrance Walmart: Pathetic.

Los Feliz TRU had a bubble-falling-off-card shield Droideka figure last night. They also had 3 of the new LEGO Stormtrooper battle packs, the one with the teeny ship, I passed for now to save a buck - if it had been the Rebel one with the speeder, I would have bought it. :p

All the TRUs from here to Porter Ranch had the new LEGO Indiana Jones sets in differing degrees. New SW LEGO too, though only Los Feliz had the bps.

TRU Burbank had a few Doctor Who toys, strangely, including a Dalek figure, a few of the Doctor regeneration 2packs ($20, ouch), one of those pig cops, and a bunch of the Sonic Screwdriver sets (bargain at $13) in the spy toys.

WM West Hills had 1 of the new Jabba's Band and 4 of the Jabba's Dancers box sets, what a shocker. They also had a ton of the new G.Heroes Cantina box sets.


I was out a solid 12 hours yesterday, when I got back at midnight, my neighborhood was in a blackout, they had blocked off the streets, and it had been going for 4 hours and would go another 5. Great job DWP! Apparently mine was the only neighborhood like this as well.


I really like the new Clone Wars Anakin figure. The Jedi Starfighter is pretty much the same as the other Jedi Starfighters. You mean rickety and floppy and oversized? I was hoping this would be a tighter version of the design. I saw it at TRU last night, didn't really speak to me after reading your post.


The AT-TP is really cool, but I don't know if it's worth it at $40. I just thought that it would be a little bigger for that price. The set also comes with 2 Shocktroopers.Sadly, that seems to be a new theme with LEGO. It looks pretty big and feature-rich, is that not the case?


The Indy sets look cool. So far I've only built the Motorcyle Chase set. I just love the Indy figure. He comes with gun, whip, and pouch/messenger bag.Yeah, when I read your post (I haven't had time to post lately, still don't actually :p) I had to grab that set as well, it's a winner. I saw all the others - the Well of Souls (renamed who cares what they call it) looked kinda meh but the opening sequence of Raiders set looked awesome (though another $50 set that's just mini-scenes connected) and the Truck set looks like it could work.

I'm starting to think the Wal-Mart exclusive comic packs are definitely being h eld until after the New Year.

Big thanks to Cataclizm for a stashed UGH McStormtrooper.

And expertly stashed figure, I have to add.

City of Hawthorne TRU: I stashed a McQuarrie Rebeltrooper. PM for details.
EDIT: stash has been claimed
Also grabbed one for myself, and one for a buddy I know. They had lots more wave 8 still on the pegs. All the figures fresh put out while i was there.
Torrance TRU: Lots and lots of Allspark power Landmines, Cliffjumpers, Camshafts. More Wave 8 SW but all the McRebels and Wolfs(?) looked to have been cleaned out before I got there. Then again this store has the SW section set up right behind a huge pillar so you can't really check all the pegs unless you're a contortionist.
Torrance Walmart: Had about 6 of the evolutions clone to sandtrooper 3 packs.
Target Redondo beach Galleria was a waste of time.

I got four of the Mighty Muggs "figures" at Wal-Mart: Vader, Boba Fett, Chewbacca and Han Solo between Pico Rivera and Monrovia Wal-Marts. Didn't see a Stormtrooper or Darth Maul at either. Didn't plan on buying these, but they looked pretty cool and once I opened them, I didn't regret spending $9.96 for each.

Got 4 McStormtroopers at Monrovia TRU. This was like an hour or more after opening. Noticed the Evolutions packs, mostly clone to sandtrooper, at a couple of Wal-Marts.

Damn, what's going on with the Wal-Mart exclusive comic packs?

Does anyone know if there are any toy donation centers still going in the San Fernando/San Gabriel Valley? TRU stopped collecting like two weeks ago, and I have some extra figures that I'd love to get rid of.

Nothing good- I'm just getting rid of all the Airbornes and Stormies that came in my cases this year.
