I was able to score a McRebel and Jango from La Cienega TRU so I'm all done with SW figures for '07!

La Brea Target was even worse than usual as they shrunk the action figure section to just half an aisle, possibly in preparation for the next reset?

Chillin' out here in Dallas (32 degrees right now) for the holidays and am finding lots of w7.5 hanging around. Grabbed a few more troops for army building and a Max Reebo pack from WM. I also ran into a JLU 3-pack with Ultra Humanite/Green Arrow but not Mr Miracle/Darkseid. Are those 2 in the same assortment? Wasn't sure if I just missed Mr Miracle/Darkseid or not.

Happy Holidays...

I hit the mother-load of Wave 8 this morning at Toys R Us.

4 McQuarrie Rebel Troopers (so there were 4 cases, right?)

My friend asked for 2 complete sets. Then I picked up others for me and friends. NavTek gets 1 McQuarrie and I've offered one to JediTricks, but he's still sleeping right now, so I don't know if he wants it. :rolleyes:

6 Clones in Training Gear (4 for me) - I must have left 2 behind.

3 Jangos - I left 5 or more behind.

2 Padmes - they weren't any better than the one I already had - worse actually. I took the 2 best for my buddy and left 6.

2 Voolfe Monns - I probably left 6 behind. I like this figure but already had it.

2 Destroyer Droids - Somebody else will have to show me their loose one before I decide if I'll get it. I left 6 behind.

That's it I think. So there were 4 cases of Wave 8. I bought everything there that was good (well, maybe I should've gotten all the Clones in Training Gear, but I'm sure they've sold by now. The morning crowd was all after Nintendos though).

Hey!

Stopped in to Los Feliz TRU at the height of the holiday feeding frenzy (12:30 PM) for items other than SW (gasp!). To amuse myself, I ducked in to the SW aisle to see what dregs were left.

To my surprise, there was a TON of Wave 8 -- easily 6X everything (minus, of course, McClam Trooper). You guys shouldn't have much trouble finding what you need, but I stashed the following just in case:

- Jango and Training Clone
- Jango, Training Clone & Volvvif

It was a madhouse in there, so PM me soon & I'll give up the locations (Turbowars may get first dibs. :yes:).

Happy holidays to you all!

Stopped by Burbank KB today (I'm surprised they haven't gone out of business)- to find several Hermi Odles, Tattoo Anakins, Roron Corobb, Yoda/Kybuck. Funny thing was, there were at least 6 of each, but no Darth Revan, Darth Malek or Pre-Grievous. Guess where I found all of those? Yep, downstairs at the Scalp Shop- $15 a piece. Bastards!

I just went to the grocery store tonight at 11 PM. I noticed City of Hawthorne TRU was still open when I passed so I decided to look inside, just for sh*ts and giggles. Let me tell you, the place looked like a freakin hurricane had hit it. toys strewn ALL OVER the entire floor of the store. I can only imagine what it was like in there a few hours earlier!

Thanks Tycho for the McReb grab! Now I'm just down to finding Jango & Reb Vanguard, it's so shocking.
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.The CHP office on Central ave in Glendale may still be taking donations (it's in an office building, call for the address), they were taking them VERY late last year.

Did a late night run to Porter Ranch. Nothing of note there, except, as Cataclizm1 noted where he went, as MESS.

Went to 3 West Valley Targets and at one I found at least 20 Padmes (black gown) and a bunch of Volvifs. I don't know what the deal was but they were there. There must have been quite a few wave 8 cases, but not a single other figure besides those 2. I see many a padme on the future pegs.

Happy Christmas Eve everybody! I went to Target Burbank at normal time (pretty sure they opened at 7 tho) and was disgusted to see not one TAC figure there. The TAC and SL pegs, as well as a few extra pegs and most of the shelf below where sabers usually are, were FILLED with SL. Imp Officers, Shockies, Pit Droids, BDs, 3PO BDs, Boushhs, clones, Vaders, Sandtroopers, Droidekas the same stuff they've been getting constantly. One RA-7 broke the monotony. So much for scoring any TAC today! I figure most other places I could visit would be wiped out by now anyway.

The GOOD news is that they had DC Universe wave 1. It was tempting to buy all 5 (there was also an extra Batman, naturally) but I settled for the Kirbys: Etrigan and Orion. They look great! Hopefully Mattel really has learned its lesson as most reports & case assortments indicate for this series.

Still to go:
Voolvif
Padme
2 Jangos
Training Clone
3-4 Clammies
3-4 R2-B1s

and MAYBE a Pax and a poncho clone or vanguard. Not too worried, since a Q&A about wanting to see the McQuarrie figures show up more often in future assortments had Hasbro implying that a lot of TAC will be available through the first half of '08. Of course, a lot of collectors will scoop them up just as fast since they'll have stands instead of coins... :laugh:

Los Feliz TRU had plenty of these figures this morning. Not sure if they were leftovers from yesterday, but there were still plenty of each. No McRebel Troopers of course. You might want to give them a try.

Nothing new at Glendale Target this morning. They were moving all the action figures to the Hot Wheels aisle to make room for a Clearance aisle. All the POTC toys were on clearance. I did find a lone ML Hydra soldier though.

I hit TRU and Target La Cienega today, the toy aisles at the latter were barren and at the former were barren and looked like they had been hit by a tornado. Brilliant, because nobody was at the stores returning product and looking to buy different stuff or anything. :rolleyes:

Target on Sepulveda in Sherman Oaks had full pegs but it was mostly pegwarmers. Few coin figures and a lot of Legends. A lot of the ATRT Battle Packs and ARC ship. Really nothing that most of us don't already have. I'd love to buy more of the Biker Scouts and other Troopers that are there, but am hoping for some kind of sale at some point. Just can't justify building armies at these prices.

Went to La Cienega Target today as well. It was eerie how empty it was. They had completely cleared most pegs and rearranged for the reset, but I don't know where any of the product went. There were a few ship exclusives in other random "junk" aisles, but they must have taken pallets of stuff to the back, to sort through it.
I did notice the shelf tag for the new mystery "Star Wars 2 pack" or something like that. There was also the familiar expanded universe comic 2 pack peg.

The Targets around here are definitely re-setting, but like everywhere else, nothing SW is on Clearance yet. I'm finding plenty of Bombers, ARC-170's and AT-RT's. I did get some cheap ornaments for next year.

Burbank Target has doubled the pegs for SW figures. Now both ends of the aisles have SW figure sections. I'm sure this must be temporary, but they did put the peg tags up, so who knows. Nothing but Legends pegwarmers for now, and they are practically one per peg. No "Cars" to be found either.

toonimator
12-28-2007, 01:03 PM
This morning saw a lot of SW in that new front section. Still mostly Legends, but the repaint wave was present in pretty good numbers. I got my 3 R2-B1s and a Pax... Jackie Chan was there with an arm full of some sorta HW-type cars, and I think a Cobra Trooper (2 of everything on Joe pegs but the Trooper). He was looking at the SW figures but not going for any... Soon as he saw me grabbing 2 R2s, he grabbed one. There was a 4th, fortunately, so I'm done with my droids for the year :razz: Then he actually asked me which figure there was the best! Damn scalper.

There were still a bunch of everything else from the wave. The Joes were the Shipwreck wave, I think. Nada new in Marvel or DC, and no pegs visible (yet?) for DC Universe. The Demon and Orion from last week are pretty cool!

Target West Hollywood has annihilated their toy section, turning the entire thing into a hideous clearance zone. There are no Star Wars pegs left, the only SW figures there were comics 2packs dumped in one of the clearance aisles, not even on a peg, and they're not on clearance!!!

Here in LA, I hit 3 Radio Shacks in the Hollywood area (there's another 2 around here I didn't need to go to) to get all 5 pieces. Some still have the Star Wars display up for them, another had them dumped in a friggin' small box on the floor with some other crap, and the third had them up on pegs with the regular keychains and car stuff. But they were all $5 down from $20 and $10, respectively. Luke's blue LED flashlight is the hardest to find, I think I need to buy a second and start using it since it's so darn bright.

Have a good trip... in Iowa?

Went to both Eagle Rock and Glendale Targets this morning and found no new Star Wars. Looks like both stores have done their reset though, so new stuff should be hitting anytime.

Eagle Rock had about 4-5 pegs full of the GI Joe Zartan wave if any of you are interested. They also had the variant case of ML3. I managed to pick up the Marvel Girls (not the backward variant :sad:) and a Hydra Soldier open mouth variant. Had some trouble at checkout though. They don't seem to be in their system yet. The manager finally sold them to me at Spider-man movie figure prices ($6.98). :)

I don't collect Indy stuff, but this would **** me off. It's bad enough when regular retail stores let scalpers buy cases from the back, but a singular tourist destination like Disneyland should not be doing this. For a lot of people, this is a one shot chance.

I haven't really been hitting the stores, but I did notice at one Wal-Mart that they now have Disney Cars packs with 3 cars, called something like "Piston Cup" something. It's the pace car and two other cars.

Lots of Titanium (Obi-Wan, 2 Kit, AND a Plo Koon Hyperspace Ring fighters, AT-AP, etc). GIJoe 3-packs (in garish 'comic' colors!). Mighty Muggs or whatever they're called (got Chewie for myself, Fett for a friend), and some Marvel Legends! Most of the Brood wave, only Bucky & Rachel missing.

Thanks to Deoxy texting me about wave 8 on HTS last night, I was able to get my 1 more Concept Rebel, my missing Jango, and Transformers movie Landmine, plus she hit me with the working 10% off coupon (my AAA account still needs its online activation, or I would have used that 15% off instead). So I was able to "get" all the figures I wanted in their single year for the first time in probably 6 years!


P.S. I haven't received any email confirmation of my HTS order.Yeah, mine didn't come in until 1:47pm! Crazy.

Very nice!!! I'll keep my eyes open - definitely want one of these. Stash if you find any more please???

Me too! I could use a JLU stash (or even a pickup) for Fire/Ice, Mr. Miracle and even Ultra Humanite.

darkagent, was that from Glendale Target by any chance? I stopped by work and found a lot of remnant 3 packs.

JT, I knew I should've checked the TF's on HTS last night while looking for something else to buy along with a McRebel. I guess I'll just wait for your review on Landmine before deciding if I want one. For starters, I'm not a fan of the head design as it looks an awful lot like the Bionicle Toas.

Speck, HTS has the protective cases once again. I know you were looking for some a few weeks ago.

Tycho
01-02-2008, 11:25 AM
I will be happy to help Sean - if I'm in the stores at all. I have all the toys I wanted for the time being. I only plan to set foot in a Target or Wal-Mart when I need some household supplies - which might be once or twice for all of January.

The 2008 figures? I have no idea when they might show up. I don't want that many either:

5 Octopara Droids
3 Po Nudos
1 21-B
1 Mining Platform Droid

The Force Unleashed Wave has only 3 I think I want:
1 chick w. midriff showing
2 Jedi w. ponytail
1 Vader wounded

I don't think they're arriving for a while either.

Evolutions might show. I'll take:

1 Mandalorian Set
2 Jedi sets

Vehicles I'll pursue though:

3 AT-APs
1 Grievous fighter
-------------------------------------------------------------------

I think I'm done with Galactic Heroes for the time being in that I'm not interested in the new sets I've seen previewed (Order 66 GH mostly).

I don't collect anything else.

About $181 (plus tax) - roughly $200 for maybe all January-February in toys (maybe March as well). And if I find the stuff, it will probably be all available at once - so not that many trips to the retailers.

As far as I know, I'm done with Transformers (no Alts, and likely no movie stuff unless I get that LC Megatron repaint).

Star Trek is all online ordering.

SideShow is all online ordering (Palpatine being the only figure I have an interest in).

So things are going to go slow over here.

Hit two Targets this morning and they both had a lot of new stuff.

At Rosemead Target:

They had plenty of the G.I.Joe 2-packs(all 3).
They had Star Wars Bobble Heads(Clone, Stormtrooper, Vader, Yoda)
They had the Star Wars Mighty Muggs(Boba Fett, Vader, Chewie, Han--no Stormtrooper or Maul)
They had Star Wars 2-figure key chains. None with the Stormie and C3PO though. (They look pretty crappy)
Nothing new as far as basic figures.

Baldwin Park Target:

Pretty much the same except no Mighty Muggs, no Bobble Heads, only 2 out of 3 of the GI Joe 2-figure packs(the Cobra/Duke ones were not there). They also had those cheap looking keychains, but again, none with the Stormtrooper and 3PO.

I also hit the Baldwin Park Wal-Mart, but that place had literally nothing new. It looked like their toy aisles were still under construction.

I didn't buy anything at all today.

I guess I'll just wait for your review on Landmine before deciding if I want one. For starters, I'm not a fan of the head design as it looks an awful lot like the Bionicle Toas.I got lucky, I happened to remember reading someone else's sighting of it while I was checking out and was able to reverse course and order it before finishing the transaction. I know what you mean about the head, but I like the way they did the rest of it so I forgave that weird design (it's basically a tubular steel cover over his face to match how the dune buggy design works). I'll be sure to post my thoughts when it arrives.



Burbank Target had plenty of those new keychains- totally worthless if you ask me.

Found what is most likely the last Ultimate Hoth Battle Pack left in LA buried under a ton of clearance merchandise at a Target in Tha 'Hood. The BP rung up at $34.90. Good times. Also saw Mighty Muggs for the first time (Han only) and the Evolutions re-packs (passed).

By the way, this morning at Burbank Target, Jackie Chan was there. I arrived like 10 seconds before opening and JC was following the Hot Wheels crowd. I hurried up and as soon as he saw me, he changed his destination and went to the action figures aisle first. I immediately asked him (in spanish) "Weren't you going for the Hot Wheels first? Why did you change your mind?". LOL! I love to put him on the spot. He didn't reply. Oh... and then of course, he asked me what was hot! :p

Evil Rock - apparently restocked wave 8/9, but saw an employee notorious for picking the shelves clean walking away with a McQ Rebel and a smirk

I've thought about offering up red herrings.. but the bad thing about pegwarmers is they're usually BLATANT pegwarmers. Dense as some scalpers may be, I doubt they'd believe that X figure is 'hot' when there's 2+ pegs full of him. Then again, Jackie IS the guy who saw a peg full of that TRU silver Wolverine and walked off with nearly the entire peg in one haul.

Burbank Target was a waste. Endor R2s and Ghost Anakins, an Umpass, couple Airborne. Legends were migrating over to the (now full-priced) TAC pegs again.

I did see JLU Ultra-Humanite and Darkseid 3-packs, but didn't stash. The UH pack was in pretty good condition, Darkseid had a big ol' blot on his belt right in the front.

I divived the trek into 2 sections: Saturday night before closing, I hit the "10 freeway trio" of West Covina, BP, and Rosemead and Sunday morning the rest. I tried to get as many in knowing I'd go back to work from winter break Monday morning.

On an unrelated note, an acquaintance of mine started working at Alhambra TRU during the holiday season and confirmed what most must already know: employees raid cases before putting them out. There is a pecking order as to who gets what within the ranks of the employees all the way up to management. Rarely, she tells me, do employees not indoctrinated in the ways of the dark side get near certain items in the back. Off duty employees show up when shipments do to see what they can get. Many employees stash toys to purchase later when certain people aren't around. The most sought after items, according to her, are the McFarlane sports figures and game consoles. She says that even the teenage employees have learned to put the figures up on eBay.

The packaging was screwed up, but he's going to open it I'm sure. The cashier said: "It looks like someone stepped on it. But it was the last one." She didn't work in toys either.

I also bought "3:10 to Yuma" for $16.99. At city of Commerce Target I bought a single Crimson Guard GI Joe. I'm still trying to find the Destro. Sounds like someone got a ton of GI Joes there this morning, according to the cashier in electronics. For some reason they left the Crimson Guard and a Sgt. Flash from this wave.

Any of you JLU collectors have an extra Volcana figure you'd like to trade for a Fire/Ice 3 pack. That's the only figure I need to complete my collection.


Edit: Found the case assortment on EE. It's Wave 8 Revision 1. Also comes with Animated Boba, Ewoks and Endor R2-D2 (which I also saw on the pegs).

No. I missed the first batch, and they have no word on when/if they'll get more in. I've started buying at retail and HTS, so if I finish the wave that way, I'll cancel my pre-order. Frustrating isn't it- I pre-ordered the first day this wave was available at NFC. Last year I quit using EE, and this year, I think I'm quitting all pre-orders completely.

Picked up a clearance Clone Wars Arc today at NOHO Target. Some clearance toys went 75% off at a lot of Targets. I was hoping to get an R2 laptop for my Nephew, but they were gone. Arcs and ATAP are 30% off. They had a ton of ATAP and about 12 more Arcs.
Burbank was pretty much wiped out on clearance, so I bought a cheap hose connector and doormat instead.:thumbsup:
Almost bought a toy that has little plastic connectors that you use to make structures out of playing cards. It said "use your own cards too" so I thought it would be a good use for all the Star Wars trading cards I have lying around.
EDIT: Oh yeah, Los Feliz TRU and NoHo Target both had Force Unleashed Sabers. They look a little weird next to everything else. I am sure when other F.U. Product is released they will seem a little more Star Wars-y.

Target Pasadena (Colorado & Madre) had the R2 laptops last night. I didn't check to see how much they were, though. They also had about 5 ARCs and 3 AT-RT packs. Both were down to $20. I picked up their last Tie Bomber for $17.

Target Pasadena (Lake) had 6-7 ARCs left also at $20. I picked up a Tie Bomber with the figure missing at an additional 10% off.

Target Duarte had nothing much at all, except for what looked like an Episode III Lego ARC fighter. I don't collect the Lego, so I might be wrong, but the packaging was the lava splash that adorned most Ep. III items. It had no price sticker on it.

my other runs: Monrovia TRU (w/Darth Anton) - TFU sabers, remnants of wave 7 & nothing good.

sierra madre Target: nothing good, no clearance really

Lake Target: same - (i saw a Red Ninja in a putback cart, there's a good chance, he'll still be there unless he gets repegged -this was @ 4p roughly)

Eagle Rock Target: ton of wv.7 R2s, one 7th legion brown clone (I picked up), didnt see sw clearance off hand

Thanks! I've just come back from quite a journey in search of Target clearances:

San Dimas: had a couple of ARCs and 2 Starkillers hanging on the pegs along with a variety of olders figs.

Upland: nothing new or on clearance

Rancho Cucamonga (off of the 15): nothing at all, but I did get a $59.99 coat for $14.99 - I figured I had to bring back something from the 909 area code:razz:

Diamond Bar: literally had nothing - no action figure section, they must have moved things for a reset

Puente Hills: nothing of interest in SW, but I found a JLU Blue Devil and stashed it if anyone is interested

East Los Angeles: had several Tie Bombers and ARCs both at 30% off

Squeezed in between the Targets, I looked in several WMs, but no exclusive comic 3-packs as far as the eye could see

Burbank TRU must have had wave 8 today because I was just there and found a few Jango's and Clone In Training figs that weren't there yesterday.

I'm still looking for McRebel if anyone has an extra or makes a stash...

At a TRU today, I saw what were probably the remnants of that The Batman assortment so it was probably you that got them?

Public thank you's go to Commtech for the Justice League stash and to Frank Footer for the UGH McFett. :thumbsup:

the only thing new I picked up today was a Cars Dinoco Mia/Tia and a Titanium AT-OT. Glendale had a Titanium Saesee Tinn JSF but I didn't want to pay $6.49 for it.

Wow, that's a good find. I was there at opening today and didn't see it. Someone must have returned it later on.

I believe target waits until the next day to put back returns on the floor.;)

A friend got me the 3 newest comic packs with Obi, Bail and the babies. I don't really collect the comic packs but this wave is awesome; the clones and even the Fett repaint is great.

I went to Toys R Us today, just for the heck of it.

I saw a little kid asking his mom to buy him the comic 2-packs. They had a wide selection. He chose:

Quinlan Vos and Villie
Koffi Aranu and Baltar Swan

I have my doubts if he knew who the characters were - but the pack includes the comic. In any event, he thought the figures looked cool.

He had a choice of most of the characters they offer in the 2-packs including the main guys in the Marvel style.

I had to work today!

Tycho, that's a great story about the kid choosing Quinlan and Bultar Swan. When I was a kid, I tended to prefer background characters/aliens/droids when picking SW figures.

I was at Burbank Target in the afternoon, and there was a Fel/Hobbie set on the front of the pegs. Mostly kids roaming the aisles, and before I left I noticed that particular set was gone, so another nice sign that EU's doing ok. Only a couple Anakin/Assassin Droids and a crapload of the Marvel packs left.

They had AOTC Padme, not a very good one, but at least they're getting 'em now. Still tons of Endor R2s left.

My Toys R Us had about 6 AOTC Padmes. They were fair. I glanced them over to see if any were better than the one I already had. I didn't have the patience at the moment to really work with it though.

But I wonder if her being there lended credit to Hasbro's theory that female characters, especially non-action ones, don't sell. I hope not.

They also had 2 Voolif Monns, or whatever his name is.

I think there were several Destroyer Droids, too.

That was it so far as carded basic figures. Their Saga Legends all sold out!

But anyway, as far as Wave 8 goes, it also could be testimony that Jango and the Clone, plus the Concept Rebel Trooper are all just popular figures.

I don't hunt regularly for over a month now, so I don't know how long Padme had been there.

Went back this morning to Woodland Hills Target to pick up another clearanced Def Leppard guitar for a friend. I decided to check the toys clearance section (amazingly they still have one) and was surprised to find an Endor Ultimate Battlepack at $12.50 (75% off)!! That wasn't there a few days ago, so it was either a return or some employee uncovered someone's stash and moved it to where it belongs.
