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.

Did you buy it or is it still there? :sur:

I bought it. Can't leave a deal like that on the shelf. I had actually bought the set of 2 at the regular price 2 months ago, but decided to return them because I couldn't justify spending 50 each for rehashes. But at that price, it can be justified.:thumbsup:

lucky dog commtech. Most i ever saw was a hoth UBP for 30% off. I would've bought an endor for that price or lower but never saw it. Guess the endor was more popular.

I got my RAH 501st Clone Trooper yesterday. The stand sucked, the clone is cool though not too poseable. I was surprised by how much taller and larger he is than the Shadow Stormtrooper. It's like two different scales almost. This clone is definitely up to scale with the Sideshow jedis.

There are 5 Hawbat clones on the pegs this morning at Burbank Target if anyone wants to go get them before Chubby13 arrives. There is also a Lakers R2.

I found and bought a Marvel Legends Marvel Girl and Hydra soldier, both variants.

Hot Wheels guys are gone from that store since someone in the back room is snatching all the treasure hunts, white lightnings, and whatever chase cars from the cases. It's been 3 weeks since that's been going on and plumber bob and beautiful Bobby kinda gave up on that store.

also picked up a series one cobra commander

no new comic packs to be seen here in the LBC yet?? However, the evolutions sets are warming shelves already.

Of course after arranging to pick up that last elusive coin figure (Starkiller) this afternoon from Crunchy, I just happen upon three of them hanging on the pegs at Target at Desoto and Ventura. Also a few Hawkbats, Animated Fetts, McFetts and some other regulars.

I also saw for the first time those odd looking Mighty Mug things (remind me of Shmoo!). Just a Han and somebody else. I don't have a clue what the point of them is and they didn't grab me, so I left them lying there waiting for a good home and/or scalpers table.

Last night, Target on Sepulveda and Burbank had a few more ARC ships (with the face) on sale, but at about $15 a piece instead of the $7 that the other Target had. Is it odd for two different Targets to have different sale prices on the same item?

I feel your pain- I am awaiting a wave 8 case which I don't need or want- I found this wave multiple times at retail and on HTS.com. However, the case assortment has been know for quite some time now- even when you pre-ordered, so it shouldn't have been a surprise to you.

I'm not surprised, just dissappointed. I was hoping seen it took so long, that it would have been a revision case updated to include 2 McRebel Troopers.


How are they? I saw the WM-exclusive 2pack with Bats & Infected Supes, but Supes looked kinda not good.

Mattels paint job QC is very poor. My GL's face paint job was just a mess. I had to repaint his face just to make him look good. I actually liked the Infected Superman, especially the pavement accessory he comes with. The only complaint I have with this figure, is that they didn't paint his eyes green for the full infected effect. Hawkman and MM are currently my favorite.

I was at my Wal-Mart today. They don't have room on their pegs.

In stock was:

TAC Death Star Trooper
TAC Myoom Onith
TAC Elis Helrot

and yeah - I think that was basically it. Take the above figures and count multiples enough of them to fill 6 pegs and there you go.

I almost skipped them too. They were on a side end cap away from the action figure section. I just happened to notice the back of the Clone Trooper in Training card. I thought I might've found some Wave 8 figures. When I picked him up, I noticed that he came with a stand instead of the coin. That's when I quickly went through the other figures and found the new wave 1 figures. The only figure I didn't pick up was the Vanguard Rebel Trooper. This was a couple hours after the store opened, so I don't know if the rest of the wave was there. Also, at checkout, the only figures that actually rang up were the repackaged Jango and the Kashyyk Trooper. All the other figures were not in their system.

BTW, the Clone Trooper in Training and Jango have updated card backs as well. However, they do keep the 2007 TAC numbering. On the back of the Trooper card, they show Wave 1 figures and blacked out Wave 2 figures as Coming soon. On the back of the Jango card, all of Wave 2 is revealed and listed.

Actually just saw one of those displays at Stevenson Ranch Wal-Mart an hour ago. The shipping box said "Best of the Best", and the empty display was on top. It was near a pallet of misc go backs, etc. I couldn't be bothered asking about it. I assume they just dumped the figures onto pegs, but I don't know what came in it. I got one of the similar displays when I bought a bunch of Vintage a while back, and don't really have room for another.

There was a Hawkbat, Jango, and training clone with stands, but nothing else new, no comic packs.

KM,

The McRebel w/coin was included with the 2008 figures, but it's a Walmart-only wave ("The Best Of The Best") with older figures packed in with the new stuff. As far as I know the McRebels in all future waves will have the stand.

For some reason some of the older figures in the cases I saw had the coin (Holo Vader, Rebel Vanguard Trooper, Ewok 2-pack, McQuarrie Snowtrooper) and some had the stand (Hawkbat Clone, Pajama Clone, Jango).

Anyway, I have an extra McRebel coin - just shoot me a PM if you end up needing one.

Right on, bro - they are pretty cool! I wanna tear 'em open, but the cards are in really good shape. I guess I'll wait for the Wave 2 case I ordered to get here before I crack any open. I want to get 5-10 of each, but they're one per case ... so it'll be next to impossible to find one at retail, much less ten.:cry:

I found new figs yesterday at my local Wal-Mart in the Chicagoland area. I hit up one 20 min before close and they had just brought out the pallets. I saw the boxes that had "Best of the Best" on them and at first thought they were more legends figures (I haven't had much time to keep on case numbers and all that) and then I opened up the odd packaging and found all the new figs except the McRebel Trooper. Gree and 2-1B were pretty short packed only 2 out of all 5 boxes. I was only able to pull a McSnow trooper out of all 5 boxes as well. They let me keep one of the display boxes though. They kinda mess up the packages though. This morning when I stopped at other local Wal-Marts they had all these out but were pretty much all gone by 8 AMish. Still no McRebels, even when I arrived at open, someone must have beat me there the night before. Chicago can be a crappy place to live when you are looking for new figs.

Thanks. I got my AT-APs and Grievous' fighter. There's so little SW I'm buying this season it seems. I have nothing I am really going out to the stores for - Po Nudo if I can find him (and that wave). But I'm not inclined to really start looking now. The local pegs are full of last year's stuff.

I'm also not into the next wave of Comic 2-packs.

When the 2nd Wave of Evolutions sets come out, there will be something I'll go for.

I actually did stop by Target today and my store had the first wave of Evolutions figures. Been there, seen that. Still wish that AOTC Anakin was sold separately...

If you have a AAA membership, register with the AAA website and then click through their "discounts-retail" page link to HTS, you'll get a message saying your discount's now activated and you get 15% off, pretty swanky.

I just did all that and got both new vehicles through HTS for $44.79, not shabby considering I would have spent that in tax and time (to say the least) plus more on gas hunting for them.

That WM kinda sucks bad, they go through spurts of product that's not very timely and end up with tons of old stuff, then never get in new stuff except once per year or something.

I agree with you guys -- it was a nightmare trying to get a room. 1 hour, 2 browsers with multiple windows, and a phone to the ear finally led to a lucky spot at the good ol' Marina Marriott next door. Whew! It was draining, though. Tons of people weren't so lucky, if you look at Comic Con's "housing blog": http://comicconblog.typepad.com/stayinginsandiegoblog/2008/02/hotel-reserva-1.html#comments

I completely blanked on reservations yesterday, as I did last year, though I remembered mid-day. Couldn't get to a computer to try until evening so I didn't really bother. Last year I got a room not terribly far from the convention center in May or June, so I'm not too worried.

Last night I went to Burbank Target & picked up the lone TAC Jango they had, finally. Cool figure! Can't wait to get the Evo set to try to improve that one. It seems like they may have intended this one to have swappable gauntlets at some point, judging by how the forearms are constructed. Should be a good figure for 'generic' custom fodder (and extra Mandalorian gear).

A McFett was also on the pegs! And the other day I saw 2 Starkillers, a McSolo, and some other McQuarrie figure on the pegs long after opening. Weird, but nice. Hopefully McRebels eventually reach that point, still missing 'em and most of the AOTC wave. Eventually I'll finish up...

Burbank K-Mart had the new vehicles. 2 AT-APs walkers, 2 Grievous fighters and 1 Obi Wan blue fighter. The only problem is these are priced at $28.99!! WTF??!! But the whole toy department has 20% off, so I ended up paying 23.19 + tax each for the 2 AT-APs. I left the other ones there if anyone is interested. One grievous fighter is at cash register #5 since I changed my mind because of the price and decided not to get it for now. Boxes weren't mint by the way.

I'll hook up someone close to the Burbank area with an AT-AP, especially if you can hook me up with a Kashyyk trooper (camouflage scout, the newest one). Haven't been able to find any of that wave and I need a driver for the AT-AP.

Agreed. The last thing Hasbro's booth at Comic-con needs is MORE crowds.

Actually, the last thing COMIC-CON needs is more crowds.

Hmmm. 2008?

I found Wave 2 of the Evolutions sets. I turned them all down except the Jedi as I'm trading Sal my Qui-Gon for his Mandalore (I don't want the Fetts).
I have no use for the Force Unleashed one, nor Darth Bane's.

I found the Deena Shan wave of the Comic 2-packs. None of these interested me. Turned them all down. I pick and choose which comic packs I want. (Now I bought 8 sets of Quinlan Vos, and 5 of A'Sharad, so it's not like I don't like them...2 of Baron Fel...but I get only what I can use.)

I got 3 AT-APs and 1 Grievous fighter from HasbroToyShop.com. That was convenient to purchase by mail for me.

NO BASIC FIGURES thus far, but I don't have any high number count in demand for these things. The most is 5 Octopara Droids when I come across them.

I'm not buying much from The Force Unleashed - just maybe 3 figures. And nothing from Clone Wars. So it doesn't look like I'll be shopping much until July. That's just as well with me. Saving money, saving gas, and saving space.

Picked up 3 McRebels today finally at Burbank Target, along with the Jedi Legacy Evo set. Haven't cracked that open but I've already swapped heads with one McRebel and an Honor Guard. Perfect switch!

Can't recall if it's been mentioned here before, but the McRebel's head makes a better Secret Apprentice likeness than the actual figure from the Evo set! Looks more like what we've seen from the game anyway. They had those, too, all the Evo sets, but after having not bought much in the last couple months I didn't wanna drop $100 in one go. Also picked up Marvel Legends Marvel Girl & non-yelling Hydra (now I've got both for Cap to kick around!). I'm also foolishly hoping for a better Mandalorian set later on, with the missing emblem on Boba's chest and better paint than the ones I saw today. The FU set's not quite so appealing up close, I really hope the regular Secret Apprentice has a less battle-damaged version somewhere else in the line.

If you haven't used AAA online before, it's super easy to register, all you need is your AAA card number, registration is instant. And it's under the "Discounts-Retail" section, specifically, you'll need to click through their link but you can use the cart you made beforehand, just don't have any other HTS windows open prior or the discount won't work until you close them (I just did this).

Everything else is a rehash-resculpt, aside from the Octopara Droid - and the mining pan droid is just an over-hyped accessory that Hasbro carded to make them some extra bucks. :rolleyes:I can't imagine why anybody would want Po Nudo, he's a nothing background guy who looks way overdesigned in the face and doesn't do anything. Basically, he's a mega-boring guy with a creature mask, I've got my fill of that from the OT.

As for the other figures, let's break it down:
Anakin as Vader - new hip articulation for better poses, a figure we haven't had done as a basic at this quality.
Obi-Wan - new hip articulation for better poses, new head looks pretty good.
Kashyyyk Trooper - never had this before, the previous is a phony, a cheap quick repaint.
Cmdr Gree - Truthfully, this was one I was unsure of, it was the last addition to my cart, I only added him to experience the new universal-jointed wrists.
Tri-Droid - looks very cool even if the wrong design.
Panning Droid - someone made a really awesome replica of this guy at CIV, he's both a fun little droid and an action figure stand.
2-1B - I'm not a major fan of this design, but it'll go somewhere in my collection and it'd be easier than trying to track it down later. I can't believe you'd even consider complaining about this one, it's a new figure for your dioramas (the ROTS design is different from ESB).

So yeah, I am confident in the justification on this purchase.


Just a heads up to everyone. The Force Unleashed wave was found out here in the IE at Walmart this afternoon.D'oh!

OK, I have an extra Luke/Dionaga Animated Maquette. The only problem is, Luke's head was broken clean off during shipping. With the way this statue is designed, you could easily glue it back on and never know since the point of the break is covered by the dionaga tentacle. So, if that little detail doesn't bother you and you want to pay less than retail, send me a PM. I'm offering this up on SSG L.A. only to avoid shipping hassles, but if there aren't any local takers next week, I'll offer it to out-of-towners and on another forum.

You guys mind if I come in?


I'm lookin' for a little help and maybe you guys can be of service. I'm still looking for the TRU Bantha and I'd rather not pay eBay prices. If any of you still have one in your area that looks to be in good shape could you send me a PM? I'd be forever greatful. :love:

Wal-Mart Baldwin Park has had some real bad figure swapping and outright theft recently. Last night they had no less than 12 Bespin and Droid Capture battlepacks that ALL were missing the R2 units, the Jangos and the Boba Fetts. Not a single one was complete.

And a couple of weeks ago, all of their G.I. Joe comic packs had the figures swapped with those cheapy "The Corps" figures. What's worse, customer service was so clueless they didn't notice all these piraty looking MALE f igures in the spot where a female G.I. Joe, Scarlett, was supposed to be. Unbelievable. I've had to point these things out to employees on both occasions.

I haven't found any of the new EVo sets or the new TAC waves, except for one or two future pegwarmers.

Torrance Walmart: Empty pegs
Los Angeles Walmart (Crenshaw): Found the new JOEs wave 6 http://img229.imageshack.us/img229/1853/joevl3.jpg

They only had the 1 new set. Also saw some of the new package Jango Fetts, so I guess I missed the cool troopers.

Inglewood target: Empty pegs, plus I almost got killed by some ****ing idiot driving on the wrong side of the street where you turn in.

got to Burbank Target after 8:30, they had 2008 Wave 1 remnants: Vader, Gree, platform droids, Tri-Droid. The Gree vanished pretty quick to someone else, I skipped it since the helmet paint was terrible. 3 of each new Evo set. Picked up the Sith one. Remnants of new Titaniums and Mighty Muggs, too.

Nothin else new in other toylines. That store's a wasteland now if you're after DC toys in particular; Universe has been a gray-dot column of empty pegs for a long while (only saw any once since the reset, a lonely Orion), The Batman's had the same 5 figures for weeks (down a couple since last week tho), JLU's only got older stuff coming in. GIJoe basics still empty, and comics full of wave 1. Marvel toys pretty shabby too.

Also picked up Dinoco Tia & Mia from CARS

Crap! the day I decide to not go to Burbank target and wave 1 08 hits.:tired:

Tooninator: Dc Universe figures have hit at least 3 times at that target. I saw a full set last for a couple of days. Let me know which ones you need so I can stash them.

Everyone: I need help finding Gi Joe wave 6. Please stash or pick up for me. Thanks!

I'm good on wave 1, only really wanted Etrigan and Orion (tho after gettin them, I'm tempted to complete it just to build Metamorpho). I'd just like to see 'em in stores now & then, especially as Wave 2 approaches.

Found a lonely, clearanced, AT-RT set of walkers at NoHo Target. It wouldn't scan so they let me pay it at 75% off at the register. I also bought another wave 2 sith evolutions trio and used the $5 off coupon. Ended up paying just $24 with tax!:thumbsup:

Nothing new at Burbank Target. Just 2 new collectors. I guess everyone's out hunting the new SW waves.

I can't order figures online for my unusual tastes these waves.

I want 5 Octopara Droids, and 3 Po Nudos, and almost none of the others save for one 21-B.

Then with Wave 2, I only want like 2 figures - but I want to see them in person first.

So I must wait until they hit retail.

I went to Target and Toys R Us today. Target had a strange assortment of stuff including a Dark Trooper with a gold coin and Biggs (Pilot) with one as well. Then there were a lot of Wave 5 figures like Yoda and the Kybuck, Anakin shirtless, that sort of thing.

I bought the cat litter they had a sale on.
