Nice, dude!!! I just busted open my figures and they are sweet. This wave will be impossible to find at retail for awhile methinks - especially the army builders (thanks Hasbro for making them all one-per-case). I don't expect the Troopers or the Shadow Guard to even make it to the pegs here in Burbank (you know how it is).

The squad of Evo and Jump Troopers I ordered from amazon should be here in a few days - good times ahead.

True. I stared at the boxes for awhile yesterday contemplating whether to open or not. I usually use this period to appreciate my collection as opposed to just constantly adding to it. So all I did was open the cases and look at the carded figures before putting them back in the Hasbro cases, which according to the packaging labels went from China to Chino to Florida and back to California.

I have seen no less than 30-35 Star Wars battlepacks, comic packs and GI Joe 2-figure packs with swapped "The Corps" figures instead at Baldwin Park Walmart and Baldwin Park Target. "The Corps" are those crappy Wal-Mart figures you can buy real cheap.

I have pointed this out to employees on no less than three occassions. Friggin' swappers.

I have not seen a single Kashyyk trooper, but I haven't been looking too hard. Did find a Gree, and I only wanted one Gree so I'm cool there.

That's how my friends and myself always talk about them, "Yeah, went to partly ghetto WM today and got some shampoo." Everything's so close, and some stores on the same street, just down or up farther from another that it just makes it easier to decipher lol

Something funny happened at the fancy target today. Some stupid bimbo pulled in front of me, had to slam on my breaks, but whatever, I don't have road rage or anything, but it turned out she was going to the fancy target too so I was right behind her (since she did pull in front of me) and I get out and start walking through the door and she's walking through the door at the same time and she sees me, grabs her phone and turns around and walks right back out! She probably thought I was going to shoot her or something lol Alas, I was only there on a peaceful mission to find star wars.

Sorry to get off topic, just thought it was hilarious!

Right on. Apparently the best Hasbro case asst. Hasbro can come up with is one of each FU figure, along with Underarm Stain Trooper, SeeThru Hayden, Green Goo Threepio, Pilot Biggs and Poncho Jango - in order words, half the case = junk.

There's the upcoming W1R2 case with 2 of each Trooper, but of course they have to hold that off for a month or two while everyone goes crazy trying to get the short-packed FU wave. Good old Hasblow.

Remember, with W1RS you can't go wrong.

well at your super ghetto panorama city walmart figrin I found one lonely wave 1 Obi-wan. Needed him so I got him. First 08' figure purchase. And at sepulveda target I found a Fett evol.!!!! I couldn't believe it, I had to do a double take before I looked at the front and realized what it was. This is late @ 9:30 too. It was in the proper section, but I'm thinking it was either a stash or somebody didn't like the box. Had very minor bending on one corner. They also had one of the new Joe comic packs - Snake Eyes vs. SS w/cape. Along with older Joes. Oh yeah, they had a lot of SL with the Rex sticker, lots of Fetts, Bikers, pit droids, clones, but no Darktrooper, ep2 nor ep3 Clone Commanders, and no Mcquarries.

Target Duarte had some Legends figures with the Captain Rex sticker thingy, but nothing noteworthy.

Wal-Mart Duarte had most of '08 wave 1 minus the troopers and Tri Droid, plus 2 Jedi Evo sets. However, they also had cases out on pallets, including some basic figures which were Legends and some which may not have been (but it was more '08 wave 1 which I don't need), and several Comic Packs cases, and at least 1 case of Evolutions, of which I pulled out the Fett Evo set I have been looking for and purchased!

Yup, I saw those. They were wave 1 '08. I'm ashamed to say(well, sort of ashamed) that I opened one of those cases to get my first Kashyyk trooper. I hung the rest including the Gree, which I already had, back up. There were 3 other cases. But I felt guilty enough after opening one case. I'm sure someone else did.

Fortunately Baldwin Park had like 4 of these cases and an employee graciously opened one for me so I got another Kashyyk trooper. He opened another case for a Frank and Sons scalper. Surprisingly, the scalper missed a box that was already opened in clear sight and which also had a Kashyyk trooper. So yesterday I got three of these troopers; just want three more.

I've seen the new Cars but have lost my zest for collecting them. I saw wave 6 of GI Joe at Duarte Wal-Mart, including the armored Cobra Commander; was tempted to buy only that one, but decided not to.

BBTS has shipped my order of two EVO troopers and the other wave 2 trooper.

Found a whole lotta nothing at Burbank KB tonight, but did find Gold Mia/Tia Cars. When I realized they wanted $15 for them, I dropped them like a bad habit. I went downstairs and found wave 1/2 of StarWars 2008 at Chubby13's shop. They were $15-$18 apiece. Pass again. For some reason, he's putting out a bunch of AOTC figures (Saga blue cards)- who would really want those? Sounds like BlueSnags is the mackdaddy of WalMart- I wish I had the time to drive all over Valencia.

WM in Porter Ranch had some saggy legends with Capt Rex mail-in, and a singular Po Nudo which nobody seemed to want. Also 3 Jedi Evo sets, Mouse & Basso and Lt Jundland comic packs.

A buddy in Vegas found cases of wave 2 at WM.


My HTS boat came in today, all of '08 wave 1 minus Po Nudo, plus some HTS protective cases for my McQuarries. Tri Droid's card was VERY bent, but not creased - I don't really care since I ripped him open, but I can see where collectors might. The carded cases are underwhelming, they're thinner plastic than the Pro-tech brand and hold the TAC cards very loosely. Still, I'll put all my McQ's in them tomorrow, tape 'em closed on the bottom, and throw that on the wall.

Found a McSnowtrooper in the bottom--and I mean way in the bottom--of a go back cart at Pico Rivera Wal-Mart. I had to move a bunch of crap from that cart to one right next to it just to get to the figure.

Then found two Kashyyk troopers just hanging on the front of the pegs along with the rest of the wave at city of Commerce Target, at about 9 a.m. They must have just put them out. That's 6 Kashyyks for me, which is about right.

Thanks to Commtech for the Kashyyk stash. I left a Gree in hiding, so PM me or Commtech for the location. I still want a few more Kashyyk Troopers though. What's with the Lava Droid? I can't find him at Target, yet every other figure from the wave seems to hang around. Are people army building this guy? Seems like a dud of a figure to me. I also left one 2-1B on the peg this morning.

I second that about the absent lava droid. I found new all the new figures in Anaheim Monday afternoon, but no lava droid. There was only one Kashyyk trooper, but 2 of most others. I was even able to get 2 mcrebel troopers with stands (my first ever found), but no lava droid.

Hey all,.. been out of town!

Went to TRU La Cienega, McSolo wave was on the pegs and the new comic packs (wave 5)

GI Joe- I stashed 3 Crimson Guards (one with bent corner), gold Destro, Sgt. Flash, Artic snow guy, and a Snake eyes, along with some of the new comic packs. (Sorry, don't know who they were, they were the singles from the case from the look of things)

The Lava Panning Droid is a decent little set if you can get past the fact that it was originally planned as 2 pack-in accessories. The droid has 4 arms, each articulated at shoulder and elbow, and a surprising amount of detail. The repulsor platform comes off the lava fire and has decent detail as well. And the droid's square drill "hands" (not the ones holding the removable pot) can plug into the fire base for hovering - though I prefer the figure free-standing so the Jedi aren't standing so close together and at different heights.

Anyway, he's so rare because he's 1 per case, and in only 2 of the current 6 case revisions

TRU Burbank I don't remember having anything, but their employees were WAY eager to help... too bad it was failure.

Target Burbank had leftovers of wave 1, nothing major though.

Speck, I know their stockrooms are raided constantly, but I was hoping an overpriced exclusive vehicle wouldn't be as bad, and they seemed genuinely eager to help customers - like they were almost desperate. Control yourselves, show some dignity! ;)

As for the Elite TIE, I didn't want it, it's for a friend who missed it and did me a solid. That solid, BTW, was buying me all of the TFU wave and not even charging me for it (except Juno Eclipse, I didn't really want her and at the time he hadn't told me he was footing the bill) partly because I had done him a favor with wave 1.

Burbank TRU looks fairly clean by comparison to something like La Cienega TRU or Culver Sh*tty TRU. And it's not just the ones close to Big Fat Louser's, Van Nuys is downright scary, and Los Feliz was slippin' before this remodeling. Burbank is about 85% the quality of Monrovia or Azusa/W.Covina (Azusa/Covina is one of their premiere stores for some reason, even though it's in the middle of proverbial nowhere in terms of LA).

Well, off the top of my head I can remember her threatening to have my car towed because I parked it in front of her strip-mall store even though I was going to the 7-11 in the strip mall and the spots in front of her store are not exclusively hers... I recall her telling me to get out of her store because I had the audacity to move a couple figures aside on the peg in order to see what was behind them (and no, I didn't drop anything or have dirty funky hands - I was actually being extremely careful)... then there was the time I tried to take an empty "Star Wars Figures" box (you know - the ones Hasbro ships the figures in) off the top of the garbage can in front of her store and she told me to put it back, it's not mine, but I can have it for $5 (this was outside her store, mind you, among a pile of smashed & dirty cardboard boxes that were going to be picked up by the garbage man)... then there were the times she harassed my friends, also for parking in front of her (closed at the time) store... and last but not least, she arrived a few minutes late to a WalMart once, just behind my friend who was buying sets of UGH coin figures for fellow collectors and when she cried over "needing those figures for her store," he actually gave her a set to buy. But that wasn't enough and she followed him to the register, screaming that he was trash and filth and that he was buying all of HER figures (in front of my friend's two young children, might I add.)

The Kitty World store wasn't even open, and it is a mess of shelving inside. Somethings going on, cause it was bad a few weeks ago, and worse today. I don't see it lasting much longer.
Last time I was there there was a card tournament starting. The man running it was clueless and made 3 kids leave the store if they didn't want to play. $5 bucks or leave.
On a good note a new Circle K opened up where 7-11 was and it is a lot nicer.

This is just no way to run a business. There was a dealer store (actually several) near me and the owner was very cool and became a friend. He let everyone hang out there like it was a daily convention. I used to go sometimes just to see new stuff if he got his hands on things from China before they hit our shores.

I made the friendships I have with local collectors I'd see out and about, often when we were then hanging around this dealer store. It was THE place to chill, such that I used to buy fast food to-go, offer to pick up some for the dealer (not pay for it, mind you) and me and several collectors would chill, eat our lunch there, and watch movies in the store.

Because this guy was so cool, every once in a while I'd give him business - often for vintage ships or things I couldn't buy new at regular retailers.

I miss those days for sure!

I went to Duarte Walmart today and found that at least half the Evolutions packs on the shelves had all the figures swapped out with the cheap military action figures Walmart sells. There were also 10-15 of the SW comic packs that had the comic wrapped around the front of the package to conceal the fact that there were no figures at all in the package. Another collector actually took the merchandise to customer service to point out that they've basically been robbed. They said they'd look into it, but in the mean time, they actually put he toys back on the shelves.

I feel sorry for the kids that will get one of the comic packs and open it up to find nothing. :sad:

Mentioning swapped/stolen figures, I forgot I saw 2 Tie Interceptors at Van Nuys TRU yesterday. I was going to stash, but then I realized both were taped back up with that white-ish gift wrap tape, and seemed really light to me. I swear one of the boxes was so light it might have been empty. Something was rattling around inside, like cardboard or something. They may have been old regular tie fighters. Either way, they were not complete. I should have opened one, but that store was such a mess I couldn't bother.
Their computer showed 19 Mighty Muggs, with only 3 on the shelf, but no one knew how to track them down. The customer service girl helping me was very nice, but was looking online (TRU.com) to find info on them. Since they weren't on the site, she said they don't sell them.
TRU needs some competent people working CS, who know what they are doing, and care about theft, if they plan on staying in business - again.

I've been seeing some extra annoying scalpers at Torrance Walmart. One is a big tall ogre looking guy that always wears a Rams Jacket. Has short brushed back greyish hair and walks with a slight limp, but man does he power-walk. Also looks at everyone like he wants to kill them. There is also a couple, maybe married: An older asian woman with horrible teeth and the worst laugh you ever heard. Her partner is a tall white guy with gray hair, and glasses, kind of sounds like a doof when he talks. They all power walk/ run to the hotwheels, and if they find nothing new they check the SW and the Transformers.

Shopping for non-SW related items today led to, natch, a few toy aisle fly-bys. The scoop:

Deadwood Target - lived up to its name. Still have yet to see any 2008 waves here (except Evo sets, which they get occasionally).

Eagle Crock Target - One lone Po Nudo, and strangely, a bunch of Wave 7.5. They did have the Force Unleashed Warriors Battle Pack (w/ Juno Eclipse).

Los Feliz TRU - Figrin had this one pegged -- it's a mess with all the construction. A few Rex-stickered Wave 7 & 8 figures, but nothing special.

I wish Hasbro would make a Battle Pack with all our favorite scalpers -- "Assault on Frank & Son" Walmart exclusive! :):yes:

Went to Burbank Target this afternoon and noticed a cart full of toys waiting to be stocked on the floor. I quickly perused it, dodged an employee, then found a 2008 wave 1r1 box. I quickly uncovered it from the other piles of boxes and found it already open, but a Kashyyk Trooper was still inside. I can't remember the last time I saw Target restock Star Wars during the day. Nothing else good anywhere in town today.

I did email my GG Obi Wan Clone Armor redemption today- can't wait for that mini-bust. I had to disassemble the statue so I could safely turn it upside down to take the picture. That really sucked- but I was able to do it without any breakage. I bet GG is hoping that everyone breaks their statues trying to photograph the bases. If I had a glass table, it would have been easy.

let's submit that "Assault on Frank & Son's" scalper bp idea to H at comic-con!!!
:laugh:

I'm on board for this. I'm thinking an 8-pack with the following figures/accessories:

Dirty Sanchez (w/Low Rider)
Blackberry (w/Blackberry headset)
Pegleg Pete (w/limp)
Bob the Plumber (w/Plunger)
Jackie Chan (w/"Scalping For Dummies" guidebook)
Chef Boyardee (w/Dazed & Confused)
Chubby13 (w/KBToys "Can I Help You" Employee Badge)
Headphones (w/1970s AM Radio headset & Members Only Jacket)

I'm thinking either Police Lineup packaging with all of them lined up "Usual Suspects" style, or an Ultimate Battle Pack where they're all fighting each other.

By the way, the Kashyyk trooper and Gree are up at HTS.

I've got family out that way that I can only see them on weekends because of work. Since I can only hunt on weekends, also because of work, I combine the two and search on my way out there or on the way back, usually cursing F&S's dominion of the area the entire time.

Rodeo Target - under construction, leftovers of wave 7, 8 , SL -nothing good.

ghetto crenshaw Walmart - 1 lonely Po Nudo, many see through Anakins, nothing great, not even rex sticker SL if i recall. They did have a few new Joe comic packs though - battle damage SE vs. SS, and a few crimson guard vs. cobra trooper packs. I was wearing my show black and credential for the Mercedes Benz show, and 3 different people asked me products when i was browsing the dvds.

It kills me when people ask me questions as if I work there. I guess we often look more like we know what we are doing than alot of employees most of the time.

So my sister went to Disneyland this weekend and I asked her to pick me up a 7" Indiana Jones figure. Unfortunately, there were none to be found. So she ask the salesman if they had anymore in back. He tells her that every morning one guy comes into the store and buys 25, leaves and comes back and buys another 25, and repeats this until they have sold out. Apparently, the limit is 25 per trip. The salesman told her that even he hasn't been able to get one because he works the late shift. :(

So I just caved and used my AAA discount and ordered from HTS this morning.

I'll still need 1 more Po Nudo and 3 more Octopara Droids, (I ordered the singular figures twice already), but I think I will wait until I can stuff the 2 figures I want from Force Unleashed into the next package as well.

I didn't see any DCUC wave 2 at any of the Targets I visited but I did find and buy quite a lot of SA 501st's from the TRU's I visited.

Los Feliz TRU has rearranged the store so that video games and action figures are now on the left side rather than the right side. That means less ground to cover but it also means the local scalpers will just dash over more quickly.

Burbank Target had tons of Wave 1. Picked up a 2nd Kashyyyk Trooper (couldn't resist after you left, Commtech!) and GIJoe Snowjob. Looked like only 3 Joes on the pegs compared to yesterday's zero: a Cobra trooper/officer, old Destro, and Snowy. Still no sign of any Wave 2 or 3 Comic Packs... but HTS has some so I'll probably jump on there & order a few. Thanks for that 10%/free shipping code!

There were actually 4 Joes, Toon. I took the snake eyes. I'm wondering what happened to the rest of the case. Maybe it was brought out yesterday night before they closed and we got the left overs today. Or maybe they were just returns.

Wizard World LA didn't have much of anything impressive in terms of collectibles, it was like Frank & Sons but smaller. There was a TON of old product though.


LOL, I love it. It's all good she didn't give me her # anyways, I'm too broken to do anyone any good anyways. :cry:;)Let her worry about that. :p That's why they're called "angels of mercy". :D At the very least you could throw some bills at her and tell her to "take it off!" :twisted:


Just curious - How much do those MR lightsabers normally sell for?$30-$40.

If we are talking about "taking something off" in therapy I wouldn't be worried about bills if you know what I mean. :whip:She's really cool. I went in yesterday for a follow up and she came in to see me. Maybe after my 4th session and I'm all good I'll do something about it. :thumbsup: Right now I feel too much like crap.

Anyone see any Black Hole Stormies? That's all I'd like to get at this point. Still haven't seen a MM Stormy!

Take it easy and recover. I don't think the BH Stormie has hit yet, and I don't even know what an MM Stormie is.

I went to 3 targets and a wally today, but i'll only report what was good.

noho target - remnants of wave 1- 2-1b, obi, anakin, and some wave 8 padmes i think. Newer evol. packs too but I can't remember which ones, when i'm tired my memory goes to crap sorry.

FB's favorite panorama city ghetto walmart: older SL w/o rex stickers, Comic packs: many Jundland/shan, a few mouse & basso, 2 rep. com/BD packs. Evol.: at least 1 sith, 1 fett and a lot of jedi legacies. my memory's foggy, but i think they had one wave 1 Anakin (vader).


I shoulda went to burbank - but my chances of finding a k-troop there woulda been slim b/c i got outta work at 3:30. That wretched hive of scum & .....u know the rest.
btw - MM still suck!!!!

Big donut at Burbank Target. Some older TACs tho: pre-cyborg Grievous, Holiday Fett, CZ-4, a random Ghost Anakin. Weird mix. Funko's wacky wobblers got restocked, there was a Boba Fett which looked kinda neat.

Hey good buddy, as it turns out, I actually have an extra one of these. He's yours. I haven't been out in a while, but decided to hit Target this morning and was pleasantly surprised to find an endcap with the new Exclusives. I grabbed an Aayla fighter and a Kashyyyk BP. I haven't opened either one yet, but upon close inspection, I believe those Stormies are of the VOTC variety. NICE!!!

I still haven't seen any at retail. Aside from one trip to WM last Sunday, I haven't been to any stores in weeks.

In this case, HTS will end up being cheaper than retail, so I figured what the hell. If they end up being the AT-TE Gunner mold I'll just return 'em to HTS.

I found 5 of them at that store on Saturday so they must've gotten way too many SL cases and no TAC.

Thanks for the heads up Snags! I'm going to order 2 and be set at my limit of 10.

I live around the corner and rarely go in. But I checked the toy aisle about two weeks ago when I went in for some mints. Then yesterday the exact same figures were there.

TW - on Wed. night I saw Snow Job and Laser trooper at burbank K-mart. Hopefully he's still there for ya. I looked at his card it was pretty good, never saw him before, cool lookin fig.

we never see any SA 501st because one person buys 5, 10, 15 at a time. It wouldn't be askin too much for someone to leave ONE for others. (Scalpers don't apply -they're dbs anyway)

I was just at Hawthorne city TRU and got there when the lady was stocking the end cap with Iron Man Movie figures. She only had 2 cases. Picked up Mark 1, 2, 3, Prototype (snap on), and Iron Monger (fist smash). Looks like everything except Mark 3 and Prototype are 1 per case. Also make sure to ckeck the paint, I saw a Mark 3 with paint so bad it looked like it was battle damaged.

Don't worry bikerscout, I've reached my limit on SA 501st so I'll stash any and all that I see. However, you could just order them on HTS right now and save 10% and get free shipping with "RE10FR". It comes out to being cheaper than retail so why not go that route?

thanks for the tip FB, but they're really not guaranteed to be SA 501st. I don't like to gamble.

Speaking of 501st, and hoping not to sound like an &*$%&le hypocrite, I spotted 2 sa 501sts at la cienega TRU tonight and bought them. Prior to this I had 0, (unless i count Appo) so I got both. One had a bad card, one good. There I have it -opener & carded. They also had 3 Mcsolos, which I'm surprised no one bought, all decent cards and a ton of SL. The main display had very few with rex stickers, the endcap display had at least 70% rex stickered. They also had all the evolutions packs. There was a jedi evo stashed between vehicles on the bottom shelf - I left it alone. No good TFs or joes really.

started the 400th page - cool!!!!!!

Picked up all of the SL clones with the Rex sticker this morning at Pico Rivera Wal-Mart. They only had one set. I'll probably get three more Covert Ops troopers if I see them and 2 more Neyos.

Saw a Kashyyk trooper and a couple of Grees at Baldwin Park Wal-Mart, plus one Force Unleashed figure(the male Jedi dude). I passed. Didn't stash the Kashyyk trooper cause hardly anyone who posts here seems to go to that WM.

I found force unleased at Target Manhattan beach. Picked up Battle damage Vader, Imperial Evo trooper, Jumptrooper, and a shadow guard.

I stashed a set of BD Vader, Evo, and Jumptrooper. PM for location.
EDIT 2:22 P.M.: STASH HAS BEEN CLAIMED!

Also if anyone sees the Walmart exclusive Iron man figure I need it! Pick it up for me or stash. It looks like this:

Went to Target and found all the Iron Man figures including the Target exclusive Silver Centurion IM. Then went to Duarte WM and found the War Machine IM exclusive. It looks like they had just put out the big aisle display case, so no morning scalpers were able to get any. :pleased:
