He always tries to sell me stuff outside toys r us with a slight mark up.

He used to do that to me years ago. Now he just pretends he doesn't see me and heads to the SW aisle first.

MicroJow, that's funny that you evil eyed Crunchy Nug because I remember someone else saying the same thing about him. Which is funny because I've met him and would never think he's a scalper :p

thanks figrin bran for the stashed GI jazz. i found it without a problem

ok guys, so i was thinking? If target opens at 8am and you get there at 7:30 am and a guy in a wheel chair gets there at 7:58?, what would you do? do you let him cut eventhough you have been waiting in line longer or do you let him cut because he is in a wheelchair. i'm just saying...

well anyways, i got an extra holiday boba/mcchewie for trade, i need a mcvader(oh dont we all).

anybody see any new TF deluxe or voyagers let me know, i havent seen any deluxe at retail for almost 3 weeks now

Spotted 2 of those TIE Interceptor sets at TRU Los Feliz tonight - snore. Also a Saga Legends Shocktrooper on the 41 body at Target NoHo.

I have not seen a new SW or Transformer figure in ages. :(


I guess I must be getting territorial at my local Target. I don't know how it works at other places, but we tend to be a nice, respective crowd... first person to arrive is the first to get to the pegs and we generally share amongst ourselves, even if it means having to wait for more cases to show up before we get our fill. This morning, a new guy showed up... he was the third to arrive but the moment they opened those doors, he bolted in and power-walked past everyone straight to the Star Wars.

What do you guys think? Is that bad form or am I just too nice a guy? I mean, even if some guy in a wheelchair was the first one to get in line one morning, I would probably keep pace BEHIND him and let him get to the figures first - it's only being considerate. Or am I a sucker who needs to grab first and ask questions later?

- J!It's somewhere in between these days, basically it's polite to have it be a powerwalk version of NASCAR where it's all about jockeying for position rather than a drag race between a corvette and a VW micro bus. The problem is that Hasbro has made it such a nightmare to find this crap lately and LA is getting heavily under-shipped since we have such a large population. I haven't seen a single new Star Wars figure in well over 2 months, a new Transformer deluxe in nearly the same. The reality is that with these "stock overnight" policies, it's entirely first-come first-served, and when it comes to dog-eat-dog stuff like that, the worst aspects of our nature are always going to win out. Also, there's a lot of paranoia about the guy you've never seen before being a scalper or some other type of person who is not an authentic collector and just out to screw the rest of us. The system is totally screwed up thanks to Hasbro's ineptitude and the greed of those with the whim to exploit collectors at any turn.

And BTW, I'd hate to give someone the courtesy position only to see him wander off to the electronics section to pick up a Wii and some scalper jagoff race over to toys and grab something I would have been able to get if I hadn't been playing it nice. It's just an ugly situation, but the reality is that we're no longer in the fun ol' days of POTF2 collecting when it was fun and respectively easy - even well-behaved, pedigree dogs will eventually turn vicious if starved enough.



He always tries to sell me stuff outside toys r us with a slight mark up.That is a crime, straight up. I am not sure if the manager would do anything, they're either on the take or clowns, and cops would probably laugh at you, but TRU corporate should absolutely hear about that one.

If target opens at 8am and you get there at 7:30 am and a guy in a wheel chair gets there at 7:58?, what would you do? do you let him cut eventhough you have been waiting in line longer or do you let him cut because he is in a wheelchair. i'm just saying...I would be conflicted, on the one hand he does have a disability which prevents him from doing what I can, on the other hand I don't want to treat him differently than I would someone else simply because of his disability. If he needed help with reaching for something, I'd help him, but I think I'd have to bypass him with the scenario you mentioned.


Anybody heard that Big Fat Lou's is moving away from TRU Culver City's doorstep? Is he trying to move closer to his beloved Targets up the road?

I went to Target today and found nothing - but a new closing lid, tall kitchen trash can. I'm actually going to be using it in my cats' bathroom as I'm making the transition to non-flushable kitty litter this month.

Anyway, this morning I had competition in the trash can isle. There was another dude comparing the different styles of trash cans.

We were each taking them down off the shelves and testing their hand or foot pedal opening controls at the same time.

The other guy got to the trash can isle first (as I checked the toys out on my way in). So he must have thought I was copying him as I followed him into the trash can isle and tested many of the same cans he did.

He settled on a foot pedal, rectangular model and I took a hand controlled oval-shaped loader that I thought would better accomodate my kitty litter siftter tray.

During this event, neither of us spoke. It was just like the way some of you describe your stand-offish moments competing with toys. However, I think I came away with the better trash can.

Oh, it is white with the gray and white lid variant and right now I still have it in mint condition and it has never been used to contain garbage up to this point!

That is a crime, straight up. I am not sure if the manager would do anything, they're either on the take or clowns, and cops would probably laugh at you, but TRU corporate should absolutely hear about that one.
While I know Burbank TRU wouldn't care at all, even if they got word from corporate (and especially because they're the ones buying up the goods & selling 'em at a markup outside... you know how it is), I doubt Los Feliz TRU would care or act at all unless they've had a change in management in the last couple years. Back in the GI Joe Valor vs Venom 2-pack days a couple years ago, that store was notorious for having 8 or 10 of the "Gung-Ho & Neo-Viper" 2-packs... with all the Neo-Vipers replaced with extra Gung-Hos and even the Viper art on the bubble insert being cut away to help hide the theft from customer service & unsuspecting shoppers ("Is this a new variant?"). I reported those to the staff THREE TIMES at customer service, and told 'em they'd never sell as-is. Each time, the figures were back on the pegs the next day (sometimes with some Cobra glider-thing with the pilot replaced with... Gung-Ho! Yay!)

New TFs hit Burbank Target FINALLY! JodyB warned me away when he said that Bumblebee was already gone, which is naturally the most popular one at the moment and the ONLY Deluxe I wanna get now that I've been disappointed in Barricade. I didn't even go in today, just went to work, figured there'd be nothing else new.

JT, I take it that all the Leader class Brawls were gone from LF TRU by the time you got there? I actually saw some deluxes at Los Feliz Albertsons (Brawl and Jazz) but they're extremely overpriced at $13 and change.

Speck, I've been following that debate on that site. I ordered wave 5 from NFC and have yet to receive any confirmation emails.

Sadly, you gotta go over their heads to corporate and keep doing it every time because that's the only way they're going to get it through their thick skulls that this is their f'ing money at stake!

I didn't notice them there, they weren't in the main section or I just glazed over. I can't believe they moved SW onto its own sad aisle though, that looked terrible for both SW and TF!

My Albertsons is sooooo skangey, I can't bring myself to go in now that they're remodeling, who knows what kind of animals are crawling out of the exposed woodwork.

A little more Wave 4 at Burbank Target today, picked up Umpass Stay since I skipped him on Sunday. Another assortment without McVader or CZ, but unless JodyB kept a non-UGH Fett after he passed the rest of the figures on to Commtech, the non-UGH was absent. Weird.

There was a Leia/Vader Comic Pack, the ONLY new pack on the pegs, so I grabbed that. They're chillin on my desk at work for today. Leia'll need work to become really great as Leia or as Jaina or any other lady Jedi, but Vader's set for any extras becoming members of some 'Vader-cult' or joining any extra McVaders I get as part of an Old Republic "Golden Age of the Sith"-era armored Sith Warriors.

It might also be a nice base for some Legacy of the Force "Galactic Alliance Guard" customs. Ditch the cape, modify the chest box, swap heads & throw on some different helmets... could work out nice! Then just add a Cantina Han head and a non-batty cape for any Darth Caedus customs.

La Brea Target restocked...but with more Legends wave 2. The only good thing was that El Puerco wasn't there so I was finally able to get one of the Batmobiles.

Los Feliz TRU put out the new GH sets - I picked up the AT-AT Driver and Duros sets. They also put out new Cars diecasts. All the new ones have a sticker over the barcode. On another board, I had heard that the DCPI's for them were being changed so the stickers appear to be the precursor for changing the SKU's and DCPI's.

Well, I didn't get there until around 8:20 am this morning. There were no remnants whatsoever of any wave 4 figures, only Legends wave 2. Maybe in 20 minutes, they sold out of everything?

Of course not. That's ridiculous. They didn't "sell out" til hours later after the employees cleared the shelves, punched off the clock, and then purchased their booty. :) The stuff was gone in minutes, but technically it takes hours to actually "sell out."

Looks like Wal-Mart has ordered big recently. Valencia had w4 a couple weeks ago en masse and now wave 5. Ordered 2 cases from EE so I'm set, but cool to see new figures out there!
BTW, picked up the 5 Disney Star Tours figures from Star Trader, Disneyland on Wed. Was working down there so I got a 1 hour shopping pass. Rode the ride and got the figures - excellent lunch break!
Also bought another Vader coin album for 3 bucks in Anaheim to house extras and coin flip sides. Nothing new there though.

Based on Snags' tip, I just got back from a late night WM run (4 stores). Zip, Zilch, Nada- as usual. I don't think I've ever been lucky at the Super WM- that and the Kelly Parkway store never stock SW. I did find a 20th Anniv. Optimus for $40- pass. Also found one of those GI Joe anniversary multipacks (with the flip top), where some douche swapped out all of the Cobra figures (destro, baroness, commander, etc.) with other random Joe figs. Really stupid since when you lift the flap, it shows you in huge print and images what figures are supposed to be inside.

Anyway, it was a crazy weekend that finished with the Chargers 14, Bears 3. After all the Chicago fans on my plane wearing their jerseys flew into town for the first game of the season, I'm glad we gave them a warm San Diego welcome! Hehehe.

But yeah, the Chargers came through, albeit kind of haphazzardly and late. It was defense's game for both teams for a while, really. Tomlinson was guarded by the Bears on every play. Gates played a nice game for SD.

Sounds like a plan. I'll cancel my plans to go with John Mark Carr and Mr. McClellan to Thailand ;)

Well, they're not hanging. That's for sure. They sold waaaaay fast. Wal-Mart Aero Drive got them in (heard all the Wal-Marts did, but I didn't need more than I found right there). And not only Wave 4 has been in there, but Wave 5 as well. Target has not gotten theirs at all yet to my knowledge, but I don't hunt too much as there are not a lot of figures I need.

I'm going out a little. I still want:

5 CZ-4's (haven't seen any yet)
1 C-3PO / Salacious
1 Rorron Corab (Ithorian Jedi)
1 Leia Starkiller or whatever she's called (maybe - and maybe more)
1 Pre-Cyborg Grievous (maybe)

and I think I'm good. From Wave 6, I only want Han and maybe 2 Landos.

Other than that, I keep an eye on the Transformers, but I really am not looking for many toys, so you don't see me in the isles that often. When I need other stuff from the store (today I got toilet paper at Target!!!!) I try to go at hunting time.

Those plus Aura Sing repaint and Purple Mace R2 unit were a Wal-Mart exclusive wave earlier this year. I never found the R2 or Aura around here, but did get the other 3.
Burbank TRU had, about an hour ago, one Tie Interceptor and Hoth Galactic Heroes set up on the top shelf way in the middle. Could barely see the ship. Really wanted the Naboo Heroes set, but no dice. Lot's of Ep 2/3 legend clones (white). Picked up a bag of little Vader Heads filled w/ candy at Target Halloween shop. 7.99 for 20 or so. Really cute.

I bought the Y-Wing last weekend and I will say that the deco is better than the last few releases and they finally fixed the landing gear problem. Plus, you get two figures on top of the ship. I think that's just about justified.

I will say, the Y-wing is still a comparable deal. 20 dollar ship and 2 - 7.5 dollar figures. I just think I can hold off, as all my vehicles are loose, and I probably won't enjoy it ehough. The at-ap , the hyperring starfighter , grevious's ship are all musts and probably the clone wars arc though. Gotta start saving the pennies. Sideshow has taken a lot of my Hasbro money too.

Great find! Is the Darktrooper a gold coin or is that just the flash? If it is gold, Is it a Fan's Choice thing maybe, meaning they will all be like that or can we expect not to find him very often because of variations.

EDIT: A quick search on ebay answered my question. It was Fan's Choice #1 I see. However, alot of the auctions describe it as an UGH, so I am sure it is scalper bait for reasons other than a cool figure.

Burbank Targets pegs are looking mighty empty- maybe we'll get a big replenishment soon. It would be nice to see some new battlepacks soon. If anyone wants to army build AOTC clones or ROTS clones, TRU is loaded to the gills. I'm so tempted. Does anyone remember what articulation is on those guys? Is the ROTS the #41 mold?

So it looks like New Force Collectibles might not be getting any more wave 4 pre-orders filled. If any of you guys find a mint carded CZ4 or Concept Vader, please grab/stash for me. You're my only hope...

Burbank Targets pegs are looking mighty empty- maybe we'll get a big replenishment soon. It would be nice to see some new battlepacks soon. If anyone wants to army build AOTC clones or ROTS clones, TRU is loaded to the gills. I'm so tempted. Does anyone remember what articulation is on those guys? Is the ROTS the #41 mold?
Yes, the ROTS Legends clone is #41. It IS tempting! I wish they did the clean white SA clones back in 2005... I hate having to scrape off the uniform 'dirt' from those if I wanna paint 'em up into something else.

I hit Target as well, got there a minute after opening and saw Plumber Bob and JodyB walking out, so I just parked on the other side to get groceries. Had to swing by the SW section, of course. :) Some redshirt was in there scanning pegs near SW, not sure if he scanned any of those however... only two Saga Legends remaining, Obi and BD-3PO, so I relocated 'em to their rightful--and empty for several weeks--pegs yet again. Glutton for punishment... moving Burbank Target's pitiful bunch of Legends to their proper pegs every day is my own 'pushing a boulder up a hill' hell, I suppose. Funny how all that stuff vanished. Did someone splurge yesterday (and hopefully returned 'em to Headphones' haunt)? Curious. Too bad it wasn't all those Maces that vanished... those guys aren't ever leaving it seems. Comic Packs are ready for more, too. Surprising. Hopefully they'll get some Wave 3, instead of just more Wave 2 like last week. BPs got replenished, but only the same Tantive/Geo/Dagobah sets (not that I'm itching to pick up the repacked Jedi Vs. Sith sets or anything, but at least they're new...ish).

Hi gang, I have been out of town for 4 weeks! The travel was insane but I did find most of the new stuff. Still need a CZ-4 and Malak, and McVader... Please stash.

I hit TRU La Cienega at 10am. Nothing new as far as SW. One side note,.. at opening there was only one other guy checking the SW stuff while on his cell phone,.. Leonardo DiCaprio. Kind of weird. I thought he was selling off his stuff a year ago. I didn't say anything to him, like I mentioned, he was on his cell. Just thought you guys over in Burbank would enjoy a story not involving Plumber Bob or Headphones attacking the pegs!..lollollol:D;)

I found the YWing, TIE Interceptor, and two comic packs (Luke and Vader) yesterday afternoon at TRU on Topanga.

Also received a box from EE that had Wave 4:

#22 - M'iiyoom Onith
#23 - Elis Herlot
#24 - Animated Debut: Boba Fett(from Holiday Special)
#25 - Luke Skywalker(Jedi)
#26 - CZ-3
#27 - Umpass Stay
#28 - Concept Darth Vader (Ralph McQuarrie Signature Series)


The kids are enjoying putting the coins into the coin book. :) I wish I would have done this back in 1983 when ROTJ figures had coins.

Is anyone else finding it difficult to keep up with what is being released from Hasbro and when? I miss the days of one "line" being released in waves. What do we have going now? 30th Anniversaries, Comic Packs, Legends, vehicles, etc. Anything else to look for? And Exclusives are an extra pain.

I thought everyone understood this concept by now:

Put a large number in your cart and checkout. If you've exceeded the limit, the checkout page will tell you. If it allows you to checkout, you haven't reached the limit. So, start with an insane number, then keep trying with smaller numbers until you narrow it down to the exact limit.

Tycho,

We only do it to guage how fast these sell out- and to judge whether or not there's an urgency to buying them in the morning versus later in the day (bad idea to wait). It helps by letting us tip each other off about the availability- and some of us are army builders, or like to buy multiples to save on shipping and sell to other forum members who don't have time to get online during a workday.

With this being said, if and when McVader goes on sale, I work during the day between 9-5:30 EST and have no internet access at these times. I would appreciate it if someone can order me one and I can PM them my shipping addy if need be.

Not at all. There's a similar LOOK to them, but they're not remotely identical. The helmet of Comic Vader's the only thing really "McQuarrie-esque" about him, but even that's not even close to the actual McVader helmet(s) design.

I'm not interested in McQuarrie, the Concept Snowtrooper, or 4-LOM at all, so it didn't seem worth it for me to order these. I'll find what I want from this wave without too much trouble.

Right on. They may pop up again - might be worth keeping an eye on. Can't beat 6.99, no tax and free shipping - that's cheaper than retail!

Looks like 4-LOM and Pharl McQuarrie are sold out now. Hope you guys got an order in.

Just cancelled my Wave 6 pre-order from EE. Glad to be rid of the extra DS Trooper and Stormtrooper that I was going to get stuck with - replaced them with extra McSnowtroopers instead. Amazon rules. EE has blown lately - verrrry slow to ship stuff.

Los Feliz TRU put out 3 cases of Wave 4 today. Unfortunately, all the gold UGH figures were missing. :( It looks like it was the same UGH Airbourne Trooper/McChewie/Animated Boba revision.

Cool! Glad to see more show up. Grabbed one of each (minus the absent McQuarrie Snowtrooper), just enough to get the free shipping!

Yeah, I should have mentioned that I actively didn't get him as I don't want this figure.

Ordered some of Wave 6. McQuarrie Snowtrooper and General McQuarrie are still sold out.

Also received my unleashed Clone Trooper from EE today. Pretty cool item.

TRU Los Feliz had Elis Helrot, M'iiyoom Onith, Luke Jedi, and Umpass-Stay.

If Umpass-Stay sold would he become Umpass-Gone? Just curious.

What's "the latest 3?" Does that mean Baron Fel is out, or are you talking about A'Sharad Hett?

I'm talking about Luke/Mara, Leia/Vader and whatever else those EU a**clowns are putting out.

Los Feliz TRU had the Arena Encounter BPs today. It's pretty big, and so was the price. A ridiculous $60 for rehashes (nothing new).

Just opened my wave 5 case: this is an awesome assortment, even with an unnecessary extra stormtrooper. Two Yoda on Kybucks and Concept Vader, plus the rest- kickarse! If this wave doesn't have something for everyone, then you should stop collecting now. A+ Hasbro!

Obviously you never played that video game series Tycho! The cut scenes in that game are better than the Transformers movie! :p

My wave 5 case arrived from New Force Comics as well...so far I've opened up Roron, Revan and Starkiller. the latter taking the early lead as my favorite from this wave.

I've opened up everything except C3PO (not really sure if i want to keep it) and had so much fun doing it! SW figs haven't been this much fun in a long time! :D.

Hermi Odle and Pre Cyborg Grievous are pretty awesome

I'll definitely pick up another Roron to make a more animated looking custom as well as another Starkiller. She along with Dark Woman are some of the best female figures that Hasbro has ever made, I think.

Hey CrunchyNug,

Thanks for the Red AOTC Clone- and don't forget to stash the new "Cars"- you seem to have good luck finding them.

TRU Los Feliz had a bunch of Legends figures, including a number of Boba Fetts. They also had more wave 4 straggler guys - Luke Jedi, Umpass Stay, M'iiyoom Onith - in the new "why would anybody put this here" section left of the entrance. They also had some TFs - Dead Jazz, Payload, Longarm, Dreadwing.

Target Pasadena 2-story had a Luke Jedi and a M'iiyoom Onith.

Hi all, first post on SSG so bear with me.

Obviously I'm from out-of-area (the nickname is probably a giveaway) but I travel to LA a bit and see lots of familiar haunts mentioned (Los Feliz, Glendale, Pasadena etc). I am not a collector but owned a fairly complete set of the original action figures when I was a kid (why on earth did my parents let me open them???) My young son has recently discovered Star Wars and Transformers, and I kill time in LA by buying up for Birthdays and Christmas. It had been sometimes frustrating to locate certain items (Deluxe Transformers, anyone?) but I had no idea how competitive the acquisition of popular toy lines could be until I started coming to this forum. I've already gotten a few good tips from here (such as the availability of Y-Wings, saved me the hassle of mail-ordering it before I came). My contributions are likely to be limited but I do get around a bit and can give a few insights into overseas markets.

For instance, here in Aus, SW and TF figures sell for, on average, twice the price of what they do in the US. It's the same in most other countries. We don't get the vehicles at all, although my local TRU just got their first Christmas stock with some Jedi Starfighters, at $50 Aussie each, about $42US (you can see why I save my shopping for the US). I was in London at the beginning of the month, where TRU still had some Republic Gunships and Saga Tie Fighters (albeit at 40 pounds, about $80US, each). Also Hamleys had what appeared to be a fairly complete range of the Ralph McQuarrie figures, at a price, and a fairly complete range of Deluxe Transformers (Jazz, Barricade etc) but at 13 pounds ($26US). Some figures are more popular than others, and it's interesting to see what's hot and what's not from place to place.

If these insights are of interest to anyone let me know. I've seen one or two exclusives in other places that I have never seen in the US (TF Deluxe figures 3-pack for instance) and it might be possible to do a favour on a hard-to-find item if anyone is prepared to pay overseas prices. Also have one soul (slightly used) I'd be prepared to swap for the location of a Movie Deluxe Barricade, if anyone sees one (looks like I just missed out on a big restocking last week, lots of empty pegs about the place).

Cheers

Thanks for the heads-up, but I won't be back within a useful timeframe. My next visit is Mid-October, I'll just keep trying my luck. I picked up a Voyager Starscream at East Pasadena last Wednesday, so miracles do happen.

Speaking of things Transformers, the DVD release here in Aus will be available in a Special Edition transforming DVD case. I'd post a link for you but I'm not allowed to yet. Someone else probably could if they want to get in touch.

Haven't heard of anything similar for the US market. Has anyone else?

Gambit,

PM sent. Post the links in the forum if you would, for the benefit of others, as I am not able to yet.

Should have mentioned also, this is of course a Region 4 Pal release. Those interested should check that their equipment supports both.
