Hopefully this wave'll start showing up regularly, unlike Wave 2 (saw 'em only a couple times in Burbank, then Wave 1 started flooding until there was only a peg of Orions for the longest time)

Target West Hollywood had a bunch of Transformers Animated wave 3 yesterday.


I didn't see that price hike coming! And just when Target lowered there's from 7.99 to 6.99. Those GH DV Tie's are on sale this week at Target for 16.99 btw, along with the AOTC JSF, Mos Eisley and Jabba's Palace sets.Yeah, TRU really threw me with that, I dunno how much more of this price crap I can take.

I haven't seen any of those G Heroes sets at Target since the sale, nor the new vehicles for the CW line, if during this sale you see that G.Heroes Vader's TIE or the V-19 or the Spider Droid, please stash for me.



I found and brought home the new Falcon yesterday. Yeah me! I don't have anywhere to put it, but I just couldn't pass it up. That was at Target on Sepulveda in Van Nuys. Was it $150 or did they have it on sale too?


Been having trouble find the Build-a-Droid figures anywhere. Just finding a lot of those "Clone Pack" figures instead. TRU is the place I've been finding all of the wave 1 and 2 The Legacy Collection figures so far, Target had a very small number as well but TRU had 'em all for me within 3 visits.


Here's the Falcon repaint link: http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=3346071&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=93&fpart=1#Post3348381#3346071

Now you ask, after I had seen all of those last Sunday. :p La Brea Target had them but I guess have sold out or else you would've found them.

Covina TRU had quite a few Holo Grievouses about a week and a half ago. But I don't know about now. I wasn't too interested.

By the way, I don't get the whole 1st Day sticker thing. That's pretty silly to me, seeing as you can easily just peel away stickers and affix them to a figure you want to be 1st Day. I did that by taking a sticker from a figure I opened and just put it on an extra Rex, just for the heck of it. You can't tell the difference.

Who wants to meet Slicker? (and me?)

Slick's in San Diego for about a week longer. I can drive him up to LA on SATURDAY and meet up with some of you guys.

Maybe we could wear HEADPHONES and dress like PLUMBERS, hit your stores at opening, but forget the DIRTY SANCHEZ part! ;)

No - actually, I don't see us getting up to LA until about noon, but it'd be cool to introduce him to some of you guys that I've met (Turbowars, CrunchyNug, FigrinBran, El Chuxter, Stillakid, Blue Snaggletoothe, JediTricks, etc.) and nice to meet many of you who I've never yet met.

In this "environment," but also with my tiredness and low tolerance, it also might be one of the few times I'd drive up to LA myself, but this way we'd have a "backup driver," just in case I got pretty tired - and maybe one of you would even want to show us around town, as I don't really know LA.

Check this out.

My boss had invited me to attend a seminar on Editing systems (since that's what I do) over the weekend with him. Now he's been known to be a bit of a practical joker in the past, but I had no idea what was in store for me.

We met at the Renaissance Hotel in the Hollywood X Highland complex around 3:00. He shows up and says, "We're a bit early for the conference, you want to walk around the mall for a bit?"

I follow him to the Mann Theatre when he says, "I just have to pop in and grab some movie tix for a screening I have later tonight with a client."

I follow him in and stand in line with him for some VIP thing where everyone is getting wanded at a security checkpoint. The ushers are walking around telling everyone that cellphones will not be permitted inside the theatre. I didn't think anything of it until I saw a group of kids run by waving lightsabers.

Once we make it to the front of the line, we are asked to show our ID's and our names were checked off of a list...which just happened to have the words LUCASFILM on the top.

There was no Editing seminar. There were no Editors walking around. He had just gained me access to the premier of Clone Wars!!!

Hadn't been to Target in a few days, got there around 9 today. IG-Lancer says they had wave 2 at some point, probably... Comic Pack remnants (1 each Anakin/Assassin, Anakin/Durge, Asajj/Tol) and some Last Crusade IJs. Picked up Henry, who's tough to stand thanks to his different leg lengths. Ilsa had really wonky eyes, or I'd have picked her up too. Next time, maybe.

TRU has got to be the worst when it comes to promotions. I had problems getting my Holo GG last month and today I had problems buying the Comic 2 packs at this weeks promo of "Buy 1 get 1 half off". I took up to the register the new Ventress and Anakin(repack) and they rang up at different prices and no promo discount. The cashier tried scanning the Anakin twice and the promo discount came up. She insisted that the promo must only work if I buy 2 of the same thing. It also didn't help that the shelf tag listing the promo read "Cosmic Packs" instead of "Comic Packs". They also didn't have a copy of their own weekly ad. I finally got a manager to give me the discount, although she started to insist that the promo was only for single packed Clone Wars figures (which are not on sale this week according to the weekly ad). :mad:

Hey guys, I just wanted to inform you all that if you want to donate your older or newer Collections just find your city's local girls and boys Club. My dad took two truck loads of my stuff to his work and the toys are going to the Longbeach Girls and Boys Club.
I got rid of so much stuff I can't believe it. To be honest the stuff doesn't mean all that much anymore, but it means a lot that some kids are going to crack them open and play with them. I think the next stuff to go will be the boxed 12", Ships, Clone Wars, OC and GC cards. I'm keeping the FF's, POTJ, OTC, SAGA and TAC for now.

TLC Wave 3 hit Burbank Target today (I think they skipped Wave 2 altogether!). Saw a report on RS about Manhattan Beach having Wave 3 yesterday.

I picked up 6 to build the black DS Droid. What I DIDN'T know was that repacks from previous waves would also have the new wave's droid pieces. So I got Even/Yaddle, Saleucami Trooper, Coruscant Landing Trooper, Imp Engineer, ARC Gunner, and another Kashyyyk Clone (skipped Dooku for that one, not too interested in the holo figs right now, but at least his saber hilt's all blue unlike the prototypes). Commtech got Jodo, and the other repacks were Gree, ROTJ Vader, Armor Obi-Wan, and Ak-Rev. Er... I think. Seemed like 2 GH, 2 Wave 1, 2 Wave 2, and 1 each of Wave 3.

Pulled all the droid parts & build RA7 already... he's pretty neat, but it's tough to get him to stand without hunching over. His feet aren't flat, the left foot especially tilts up to the inside, as if he should have a wider stance. Hinged elbows with swivel forearms, ball-hinge knees, ball torso, swivel hips & head. Puts together nicely, just the standing prob.

Yeah... Protocol Waves seem ideal for 2x each figure, but maybe they worry about the pegwarmers there. Or 'can't produce enough' to meet that ratio, like they used to say about other highly-sought-after figures that were only 1 per case in their debut waves.

Stopped by Glendale Galleria on way to work, picked up Quarren, Mon Calamari, and Saesee Tiin. Three lil Star Wars figures for $26 after tax... startin to make me reevaluate my collecting habits. :hurt:

If they had continued the CW line in the animated style, I would have been all over that. That's why I love the GG maquettes. But from Day 1, I hated the "real" versions of the CW characters.

the CW animated figs including those in the walmart 3 packs, have crappy articulation. I much prefer the realistic style with better articulation. I do like the GG maquettes though -esp. the grievous.
I was fortunate enough in late July to get wave 2 at Target, when they hadn't changed the dpci and TLC rang up at clearance. about $4.60 somethin a fig. In hindsight, I should've gotten extras -esp. Scubas, but I decided to leave them for other collectors b/c I'm a good guy. Too bad more collectors don't follow this practice too.

They may have bad articulation, but they look great in the package, or in a simple pose.

Plenty of us collectors in L.A. help eachother out, so don't start blaming us for hoarding. Yes we get what we want, but we also make sure to spread it around. In the first week after Midnight Madness, I saw plenty of Scubas on the pegs in the middle of the afternoon.

There were the JLU 3-packs as well.

The Legends were all gone by the time I arrived around 8:45. D'oh! I had forgotten the lineup for it, but just looked it up. Didn't know about the Tiger Stripe Wolvie, thought it was only the X-Force version... never did get a tiger-stripe one from Toy Biz (most were wonky) so I'm definitely on the lookout for that one to go with my Astonishing & Brown versions. Not sure if I'll try to get the whole wave though, tempting as they are.

Burbank also had some of the latest Saga Legends. Saw a 501st & Jango; for all I know they were leftovers from yesterday. Still pretty full pegs with pretty crummy selections.

Today I went to North Hollywood target at opening. Hootie was the only one there besides me and of course, he went to the action figures section before his beloved Hot Wheels because I was there and god forbid I beat him to any "hot" figures that he could profit from. LOL!! Anyway, there was nothing new, unfortunately.
I'm glad I didn't go to Burbank target though. Plumber Bob told me later on the phone that there were SIX, yes, SIX new collectors looking for action figures. I believe everyone's after the new Target Exclusive marvel legends. PB only recognized one collector: the guy who drives a mercedes and always wears a handsfree on his ear (Is that the one you nicknamed Blackberry, Snags? LOL!).

He gets ****ed at me when i grab some of them befor ehim. He beat me to DCUC wave 2 once , but i got 4 and he got 2, so i consider that a win. I have learned that the way to beat hootie is to just walk down there a different way from him, he gets ****ed but at least you can make out the goods first. I have not been hitting NOHO for a few weeks, I have been sticking to Sherman Oaks, but it has its own competition of sorts.

I just wish the lurkers would participate more in this threads by helping each other like we've all done here with the stashes and stuff. Or at least cooperate with info on sightings.
Seems to me like not too many people want to go to North Hollywood because they don't want to deal with Hootie. WTF?!
I'll be going back to Burbank, though. It's much closer for me.

I saw Blackberry there last week. Was shocked to see so many people waiting (compared to the usual for the last few months, when a heavy day would be me, Commtech, PB, & Bobby). I wondered why in the world he'd be there of all places, since Marvel Legends & Burbank Target don't mix usually.

I ordered some Joe vehicles from HTS and the Wolvie/Forge Legends 2-pack. Not super crazy about their sculpts, especially Wolvie's heads (more Jim Lee-style would've been nice) but really wanted a couple blue-n-golds from the era when I started reading X-Men. And since it's my birthday, I wanted to get the new VAMP which I originally got on my 5th b-day (my introduction to GIJoe was that b-day! VAMP, Rock-n-Roll, Breaker, Snake Eyes, Stalker, and maybe Zap; can't remember if I got a Cobra Trooper that day or not. All before swivel-arm battle grip, with the hard & brittle plastic that had 'em all missing at least one thumb by the time I was 6. I think I got some SW toys too, but the Joes stole the spotlight from SW & my Darth Vader "May the Force be with you" candle); also ordered the RAM & Trubble Bubble, both of which I never had originally, and a HISS Tank since it's such a fun toy & the driver'll be good custom fodder.

Pretty nice, but they all could use a bit of custom tweaks to improve 'em. Then I went to Glendale Target & picked up Grievous' starfighter.

Yes, there is. That employee has a collectibles store (if you can call it that) inside an swap meet on Beverly Blvd. on the east side of the 101 in a mexican ghetto area (I'm mexican, so I'm not trying to offend, just describe). It would be a waste of time for you to visit that TRU trying to find anything good or "hot". Although, I've heard he's a bit ignorant regarding toys (since he doesn't collect at all) so he might miss picking up a few things and they might make it on the shelves.

I'm in Portland, OR, but I read this thread so I can see if things I am waiting for have made it to the West Coast and I thought I'd share this story because the current discussion reminded me of it. You've all been talking about various collectors and people running through the doors at opening time and what not and I'm just curious to know if anyone has had a similar experience.

About a week or two before July 26th, I got to see a Target shift manager dress down 2 Hot Wheels collectors (both of whom were older than the manager) because one of them shoved around a 3rd guy. All 3 of these guys all but RAN through the doors when the store opened and speed walked through the store, cutting through various departments to get to the Hot Wheels.

The guy who did the shoving told the new guy, "if you don't like it, find another store" and "I'm gonna go tell security", but the shift manager cut him off and told the 2 "regulars" to get along, and stop acting like children over a dollar childrens toy (actual quote) or he'd ban them from the store.

I lurked around behind the dollar item area just to hear it. I almost burst out laughing. Fortunately I haven't seen anything like this with SW collectors and hoepfully I never will again since I am for the most part done with getting up early on Saturdays to make my toy runs.

Has anyone ever gotten to see something like this, i.e. a manager or employee of a retailer telling a collector or two (two of these guys were way out of line) to grow up?

Double Headphones sighting this morning. Still trying to track down TLC w3 & SL w2, so I hit a bunch of Targets on my way to work. At my 2nd Target, Headphones was walking out with no less than 4 bags FULL of stuff. I tried to use my X-Ray vision and see what he made out with, but I had no luck. Needless to say the pegs were bare by the time I made it to the action figure isle.

Knowing that he takes the bus to get around town, I raced to another Target up the street, hoping to beat him there. The only thing I found was a lone Even Piell/Yaddle so I grabbed that.

I figured I could try one more Target before I had to get to the office, and guess who came waltzing in as I was leaving? Headphones! He was carrying his Target bags, and this time I could see that they were stuffed with Ben 10 figures...lots of them.

I don't know if any of you know this, but I found him on Ebay. Here's what he's got for sale for this week...

I went to Rosemead WM yesterday and also found a MM Joker !! Then I went back today and they had the BMF's on sale for 125.00 (I guess no ones buying them) :thumbsup:

Beware of falling prices indeed...

I saw the BMF there this morning for the same price and finally bought one. I asked if it was a sale, but the cashier was unsure. The receipt said "was $149.96, you saved $24.96" so maybe it was a roll back. They had several left. Now if they'll just roll back the AT-TE...

Weho/La brea target had 5 Baronesses, a ton of wild bills, and a Flint, and many DVD packs for all u joe fans. SW section had nothing beyond TLC wave 2 & cw wave 1. Also had one MM Joker. J-hook was missing though if you care about those things, otherwise bubble was decent. I want that Falcon!!!

$50? What a joke, but I my get it, though I need the $ for taking my girlfriends out!:twisted::D

Picked up all 4 of the new SW comic packs today at Baldwin Park WM. I got there at about 9AM and, surprisingly, there they were. They had two sets, so I picked one up for Darkagent. There were no more BMFs, though. I wonder if the sale/roll back cleared them out.

Well stated and very true!!!

I forgot to post... Yesterday at La Cienega Target I stashed some Joes. I don't know if they are 'new' or not. I looked on the HTS website and these are the ones that are stashed,..

SNOW SERPENT(he's in a snow suit),
G.I. JOE Mjr HAWK,
COBRA B.A.T.(he looked like he had a chest full of Tic-Tacs),
& BARBECUE.

I'm 99.9% positive those were the four I stashed. I SUCK at the Joe line. I never collected those dudes.

Found the new TFA Deluxe Wave 3 today at Target. Picked up Swoop, but passed on Sentinel Prime and Elite Bumblebee. Also found the ML Red Hulk Wave at Target this morning. They were all there except Wolverine. Upon opening, I noticed that the Adam Warlock has a new body mold. The elbow and knee joints are now ball jointed.

Went to Duarte WM and found a couple of the new SW Comic Packs. I was also going to pick up the Durge and Anakin Comic Pack, until I noticed that the Durge had been replaced by Chewbacca. There were 3 packs on the pegs and all 3 had the Durge replaced with Chewbacca. This is not the first time I've seen something like this happen at this WM. It really seems like there's one scumbag who keeps switching out figures and returning them to this WM. :upset:

i can just picture a crazy robot chicken skit, in which someone calls Durge at his house and Chewie answers. <insert wookiee noise> :p

worse than the switcheroo though, on Sunday at Fallbrook target I saw a ripped open bubble with a kashyyyk trooper and BAD missing. I know Target's prices suck, but come on. Today at another target i saw the GI joe vehicle pack with the VAMP vs. Serpentor & air chariot with just the VAMP (i think that's the right name) no figs, no chariot. I showed an employee and he took it away.
I'm disappointed, in all of my runs this weekend I didn't see a trace of wave 3 or the new comic packs. :mad: But i did manage to grab a BMF tonite at Rosemead wally. Thanks Maradona!! Man that place is a *^&%h to get to if u've never been. I've tried to go there 2 other times & failed. Glad i got there tonite though.

That was the Armadillo Tank then; the VAMP is a 4-wheeler and is packed by itself (with driver) just like the HISS Tank. Armadillo w/ Serpentor's Air Chariot and RAM with Trubble Bubble complete the vehicle packs. Hopefully my HTS orders with the VAMP and RAM/TB show up today! Now they need to release a few of the artillery accessories... I needs me some FLAK cannons! Always wanted those to use w/ SW when I was a kid... and now!

Got to Target late today, saw leftover TFA Deluxe. A couple Elite BBs, no sign of Sentinel or Swoop (and not much room for any, either). SW's a disappointing section still with full pegs of Legends & wave 1 TLC & CW. Still the same two old Comic Packs on the ONE peg they've downgraded to since making room for all that Miniature & Pocketmodel stuff that's suddenly in great supply.

Also disappointing are the barren pegs for Dark Knight MMs, DCU, and Marvel Legends. And the pegs still full of Doc Ock for Spec Spidey. And the full pegs of that strange GIJoe assortment that keeps hitting that Target & even Burbank TRU (which hardly ever had basics over the course of the 25th line).

Indy line may as well have died... jacked-up prices + Hasbro grossly miscalculating Mutt Appeal + ever-dwindling space since the movie died down = Hardly any room to put out new stuff, if the computers even order anything thanks to Mutt gumming up the works (especially jacketless Mutt, who wasn't even in the film).

TLC figures have been trickling out, ever so slowly. Of course they're all gone at Burbank & Glendale stores. I've seen all but Vogel, and had to pass on the only Elsa I encountered because her face looked like a truck had run it over. Blech. It made Big Brows Marion look decent. Haven't seen much since I got Graily & Ilene--er, Henry--a few weeks back...

As for the Lars Homestead... heck yeah $50 is worth it! I mean, the UBPs had vehicles with lots of moving parts, 7+ figures, some new stuff... this set has 3 figures, a rodent, 1 accessory, a dome concealing a table with no chairs, and a cheap Payless Drugstore halloween-mask base. TOTALLY worth it. :whip:

The Sarlacc one looks ALMOST worth it, as the 'environment' has a bit more playability to it and the skiff's gotta interest a lot of people, but the straight-up inclusion of the 2-year-old Carkoon BP is the real insult. "Here's all those returned Carkoon Battlepacks." "What're you waiting for? Rip 'em open and let's pack the figures in this 'NEW' set!" (I know it doesn't happen that way, but it feels like it)

At Toys R Us, I got the Lars Homestead diorama = $49.99

The Galactic Heroes AT-RT set = $24.99

and the Galactic Heroes Rancor Monster set = $24.99.

I will keep my Lars Homestead unopened, thus I may be able to return it within the next 89 days with my receipt.

It was the only one they had, so I followed "the rules" and bought it as soon as I saw it - with the return clause in place to protect me in case I decide it isn't worth it.

The 1998 and 1999 Owen and Beru were excellent paint jobs though - even though I have 2 of each of these figures already. (Why I may not keep this set).

With AOTC Owen and Beru rumored for 2009, they may one day re-box this set with the figures I actually DO want, too. But for now, I'll hold out, having already purchased it (if I decide I want to keep it).

I'll spend some time also thinking about how good of job I might do recreating this set piece myself - and whether I even need Hasbro's.

Did the same. If this winds up making it to clearance (which is extremely unlikely considering its a TRU exclusive), I'll get it cheaper later on.

Yeah, TRU exclusives are not likely to make clearance sales.

Rebelscum has pics up of the loose Lars Homestead and a review of sorts.

It inspired me - to very seriously consider returning this and not thinking twice about it.

Later on, I might buy it if the set were to include the Young Lars figures - maybe. I could make this about as good as Hasbro can, but by doing it myself. I'm glad I bought it for the time being, as I can study how to best recreate it - probably from foam cuts I buy at an art supply store, and maybe disposeable plastic cereal bowls, with some paper mache' and stucco paint application.

GH DV TIE and AOTC JSF have been out for weeks now and I've seen them at Target and TRU.

Found Red Hulk MLs this morning - they've hit the Valley! There was only one incomplete set on the shelves, but between Crunchy and I we got the employees to bring out enough to make two full sets. Sentry, you're covered! See? All it took was you going out of town for them to finally show up! :thumbsup:

Ha I told you that is how it would work....


BIG THANKS to Crunchy for grabbing these for me. Now I need the WM Wave !

Got to Burbank Target around 8:30, some Wave 3 there (not much left, Engineer & Neyo & a couple of the w2 repacks). Lots of the Joe Comic Packs (no black-helm Destros). Some jerkwad returned a CW Anakin & Obi-Wan with ROTS #1 & #2 floppy-arm Anakin & Obi-Wans. And to fill the space in the bubble, BOTH of Obi-Wan's right hands were in the tray, neither on his arm. Anakin had the red saber-hand plugged into his arm, so that tells you how old the figure was. Took 'em up to Guest Services, and only then noticed the Obi-Wan was actually on a CW Yoda card! Just with Kenobi insert & tray.

Finally they've got some DCUC in! But, oh, it's just Wave 1 & 2 leftovers. Orions & Tornados & Penguins (oh my!) pretty much filling 2 of the 3 pegs. And MM Dark Knight, with the usual BB Bats and a bunch of DK Bats & Jokers. Picked up DK & Joker, they look good. Disappointed to see the regular Marvel Legends pegs--'filled' with a whopping TWO figures from last year--are marked at $14.99 like the Fin Fang Foom wave. I thought that was a higher price just because most of the Hulks & Supporting Cast were pretty hefty figures & FFF was such a big BAF... oh well. Shame that HTS probably won't have much of what's still to come, besides 2-packs. Marvel Legends, 8.99 to 14.99 in just a couple years' time. Hurray for inflation and rising costs without rising income! :whip:

Blame those of us who actually BOUGHT the Hulk FFF waves for the price increase. Rumor has it that the wave was to test the waters for the higher price point and since that bunch sold out just about everywhere...

Personally, I think Hasbro is actively trying to kill the line so that they won't be their own competition for the smaller-scaled figures they're coming out with.

Yesterday I picked up what looked like the last Rebel Pilots #2 Evolutions pack at the Burbank TRU. There may have been more, but I didn't realize there was a Star Wars display until I was already in the checkout lane and by then, I was running late getting back from my lunch break. Which I guess means there could've been more new product, but it was almost 2pm so I told myself any other new product was probably gone by then.

Picked up the new Target exclusives Rattler and Conquest, finally!!

Confirmed now, as Toonimator mentioned, Marvel Legends are now $14.99 at Target!:mad: Sucks!!

Also, spotted a bunch of Joes at Hootie's Target, 3 BATS, 3 Major Bludds, 3 Flash, Bazookas, etc...

I also grabbed the new Joe vehicles at Target this morning. Couldn't resist, cuz they are so sweet.

Also saw JLU 6-packs...Apocolypse pack and Grodd pack. Almost pulled the trigger, but decided to pass for now.

I don't think there were any more there... I stopped by Wednesday night and I only recall Padmes & Fetts being in the little cardboard display in the middle of the floor, on the bottom below pegs of wave 1 stuff. Lots of v1 Rebels, one v2, and one Imperial set over in the main SW aisle. Almost took home a B-wing... still putting it off but nice to see 'em in stores again. Picked up M-O from Wall-E instead!

Picked up both TFU Figure Packs at Stevenson Ranch Wal-Mart. There were still plenty on the shelf if anyone is interested in these. The Incenerator Troopers are pretty cool figures. Each pack is about $15.00.

I also found and picked up the WM Force Unleashed BPs today. At Target I picked up the Rattler, but passed on the Conquest. Even though I don't collect GI Joes, I've always wanted one since I was a kid. The boxes are huge, so don't except to find more than 2 sets put out on the shelves.

Man, I thought Toon was mistaken with the ML prices. I finally found Wolverine today (the last one I needed to complete Red Hulk) and was shocked to find that it was $14.99. Not only that, but all the old figures (X3 Jean Grey, Hydra Soldier and even Emma Frost) were also at $14.99. :cry: Well, at least I managed to get the other 5 Red Hulk Figures last week when they were $9.99.

I've put my order in. Didn't want to risk missing out.

Somebody out there must really love the new Comic Pack Durge. Last week, I found at least 4 comic packs at Duarte WM with Durge swapped out with Chewbacca. Today, at Pico Rivera WM, I found 6-8 of the same comic packs with Durge swapped out with a Blue Battle Droid. Anyone know where the Battle Droid is from?

Yeah, those are from the STAP Attack BP at TRU. So... they wanted a bunch of STAPs and silver SBDs (or whatever the SBD is painted) and a bunch of Durges, but not the floppy STAP pilots.

Tho I wonder, if you visit a nearby TRU if you'll find all the STAP Attack sets returned with the Saga Legends battle droid molds or something cheap like that, and/or the SA SBD replaced with old crummy Saga/ROTS SBDs.

Nice to see swapping is alive and well in the TAC line. :tired:

I found the latest wave of Legacy figs at the Wal-Mart on Crenshaw. Everything but Judo Cast, I should say. What older figure in the wave comes with the droid head? Wasn't Judo in the EE pack? I don't think I need 2 so I don't care much that he wasn't there, but I left before I realized I'd have a headless droid.

I also found there the latest tf animated voyagers including Blitzwing and Grimlock. Many of them. I had to do an after market fix on Grimmy and The Blitzy I found was loose and scratched up. I'll be exchanging Blitzy, but love Grimmy and look forward to a higher quality Blitz. Oh, and picked up the Legacy of Bumblebee pack. I spent too much.

Finally, found the tf classics Silverbolt at Target on La Cienega (and again at the TRU on La Cienega). He's not the most ingenously engineered tf, but he's got good articulation, looks good in both modes, and is so geewunny I'm tickled. Maybe it's just nostalgia, but it works for me.

I also found those Gi Joe DVD packs. I passed, but was intrigued. They're kinds cool. What are the last three packs (I only saw 1 & 2)?

darkagent

I believe it's the Clone Wars Quad Cannon Clone Trooper.

Toon, you're right, the Battle Droid is from the TRU exclusive STAP Attack. That is some expensive figure swapping, since that BP has never gone on clearance.

Now that's one of the Stormtroopers that joined the Village People, right?

I got the Antares Draco and Ganner Krieg "Legacy" comic 2-pack tonight at Target. I must have missed Cade Skywalker and Darth Talon this morning, but I had company and couldn't go out to shop.

"Krieg" means "war" in German, btw. "Draco" is such an obvious play off Dracula - though for no apparent reason with this character. Imperial Knights are Force-using, lightsaber wielding Royal Guards, basically. They defend the Fel's - descendants of Baron Soontir Fel's son and Jaina Solo (Leia's Force-adept daughter). They rule the remains of the Empire in the future. But they're kind of good-guy dictators.

Not quite. Draco's not necessarily "Dracula"... there's Drake, Draconian, all sorts of things it could be a take on. And far as I know, there's still zero proof that Jaina Solo is the mother of the Fel Dynasty.

Yes, most LEGACY fans assumed as such given that the Force is with Emperor Fel & his daughter Marasiah, but in the comic--at least--it's never been clarified (because Dark Horse & Del Rey, rather than working together to bridge the century gap between LOTF and LEGACY, pretty much just avoid specifics; a fine example is why Lowbacca, a Wookiee Jedi, hasn't yet been seen among the Jedi who survived the rise of Darth Krayt--they avoid him because they don't know what Del Rey's planned for him. Gotta love that lack of communication & cooperation!). We don't even know who the first Fel Emperor is; Soontir had other sons besides Jag.

As for the Knights, the regular Jedi consider them "Gray Jedi". They ARE Jedi on the light side, but they serve the Emperor first, the will of the Force second. All have identical-hilt silver-bladed sabers. When Marasiah first appeared in the comic, her training was incomplete, so she had a blue-bladed saber but with the same hilt I think. If they ever make one of the female IKs (Sigel Dare, or Marasiah's now-deceased master) they can easily make IK Sia from after she completes her training, but I'd like the one from "Broken" where she's got borrowed clothes on. She sees some action in that outfit, and it's distinct enough from the IK uniform and from her Leia-esque white gown from the covers & her debut.

I'm looking forward to finding these sets... someday. If Target ever actually gets some CPs in. It's down to one peg with one pack of Bultar/Koffi, and two pegs of those SW Miniatures starter-sets overflowing below it. LEGACY's my favorite SW comic, so the more the merrier. Bring on Krayt, Nihl, Wolf, Shado, Sigel, Emperor Fel, Deliah, Syn, Bantha, Morrigan, Veed, Wyyrlok, and more!

Yeah, CW's got weird wave numbers. Wave 1 was 8 figures, wave 2 & 3 are four each. I guess unofficially counting w1 as "two" waves is the way they justified such a comparatively long delay between Wave 1 & 2, while three waves of TLC have already hit, two of 'em on 7/26. Congrats on the find tho!

sorry, woulda posted earlier but had to take a nap - Glendale target early afternoon: my first taste of wave 3, they had a holo dooku and a CLP clone. Also had 3 of the new comic packs, minus talon/cade. Just got the krieg/draco and the CLP clone. Also had a hoth speeder bp. Some other dude grabbed it after I pointed it out. Had a lot of older Joe comic packs too.

edit: also had a padme evo. and rebel pilots #2 at the target

TRU La cienega afternoon - a legends 501st (first display), and a few quad gunner clones and 2 holo grievouses (second display). GG was $10. :( Joe fans: they had the excl. crimson guard BP and SE vs. red ninjas BP. One of each.

I'm going to try to go to Target tomorrow morning. I haven't been feeling well in the early morning, so I rested instead of went hunting.

I got my Imperial Knights pack in the afternoon. Someone probably only wanted Cade when they found that wave earlier.

TOOMINATOR - glad to know another Legacy fan. Yeah, I want all the figures you laid out. I think Darth Krayyt is coming for sure. Carded perhaps? I hope he has a removeable helmet - but that's very likely nowadays - which is way cool.

I also hope they'll single-card Cade. I might do scenes and I could use more of him that I have need for Darth Talon.

Are you going to buy Joker Squad when it becomes available? I want them for the Quarren Sith Lord if anything for sure. Chick-Stormtroopers are alright, too - though I'm not sure how practical that is (and would they really have booby-armor?).

But they are also making K'Kruhk, and I hope he's passable for his older version as well as the young Whipid Jedi warrior. I hope they give him the rice-paddy hat! Some gray hair would be fine by me, too. Or they could do a repaint. I'd buy both.

Anyway, I hope I come up with the Rebel Pilots 2 myself. I want that Twi'lek girl pilot and the B-wing Fighter Guy, who qualifies as a vintage-era re-do at long last.

This will be my first Galactic heroes purchase ever. I hope I don't become addicted to this line. I also got mighty muggs of assajj, captain rex and dooku for another collector. Before I left the toy section, I spotted 3 legends shocktroopers from last year at one of the clearance endcaps. They wouldn't scan so a manager had the cashier ring them for $1.66!!
