View Full Version : AOTC in ATL
03-22-2002, 03:30 PM
just found 4 jedi starfighters at walmart in marietta on johnsons ferry rd
I hid 2 of them for my friends but one is still in the correct aisle
let me know if you need one and I can tell you where I put them
they ring up at $19.76 which is less than I believe the retail price of $24.99 quoted online
if anyone knows where I can find the teebo/bo shek wave let me know
Im also still searching for a nm zutton and eeth
03-22-2002, 04:17 PM
I haven't found any of the Bo Shek figures in the metro Atlanta area...the newest POTJ I've found lately was a Zutton at the TRU in Kennesaw.
03-22-2002, 04:21 PM
was it the mangled zutton -the only one on the shelf?
or have they received another shipment in the past 2 weeks
still no eeth though
03-23-2002, 01:48 AM
Just hang tight on the BoShek wave. I've heard they're popping up around here......otherwise, FederationToys.com will get 'em again for $6.50 a piece...can't beat that.

Good news! I found the BoShek wave at the Wal-Mart on 41 near Cumberland Mall. They still had a few of each when I left.
Hope this helps your search.
03-23-2002, 07:21 PM
found the last wave of green cards (non preview)
the walmart at the perimeter had a few of each figure left (Bo Shek, Teebo and R4) and they also had a few AOTC previews but surprisingly no jangos or clonetroopers could be found. I think they may be the first highly sought after AOTC figs. good luck

Again, thanks GenKen. The tip to hit Canton for the Jedi Starfighter also helped me score the Teebo wave in Woodstock. I am done until midnight madness. I will NOT buy the two ship resculpts. I feel like such a sucker every time I buy a figure resculpt, so I won't do it for a more expensive ship.
So, are we going to get our ATL crew together to see a midnight showing???
03-25-2002, 08:15 PM
is it still April 23 at midnight or am I mistaken?
I havent heard anything lately from the Lucas camp, but I plan to be out buying the first wave just like I was 3 years ago
you can pick up an AT-ST at the TRU in Kennesaw
they just broke out another box while I was there and they had a few jangos and clones there as well
03-25-2002, 08:38 PM
They have plenty of At-St's at that TRU, I saw at least 6 on the shelf today...no FX7 wave though.
03-25-2002, 08:40 PM
i found a jedi starfighter in sierra vista...but we dont have a tru soo i havent found any thing else..
03-25-2002, 09:25 PM
The next time I'm in Arizona I'll have to check it out. Honest mistake.
03-25-2002, 09:32 PM
LOL. I'm sorry about that. I've lived in Atlanta for about 10 years now and there are a ton of names for areas/suburbs/small towns in the 12 counties that are loosely refered to as the Atlanta metro area. I couldn't for the life of me remember where the hell Sierra Vista was.
03-29-2002, 05:23 PM
will be open for midnight madness
honestly the last time in '99 I bought all my figures the
next day without a problem
I would think there will be a line at TRU
04-03-2002, 12:24 PM
well I took Gen Kens advice and headed over to walmart this morning but sadly nothing was there
I also hit the stores in Kennesaw, East Cobb, Atlanta and Woodstock but nothing was present except empty shelves
04-03-2002, 06:28 PM
dont get too excited its only the preview figs but they have
just stocked about 3 boxes of the jango/zam line at the Target
on the corner of Sandy Plains and Shallowford and the best news
is when you get to the register they ring up at $4.50 each even though the sticker in the toy aisle said $6.44
had I known that I probably would have got another set
if you need these figs get over there or reply back and I will hide some for you fellow collectors
04-08-2002, 07:53 PM
i know this isnt an update on figs but if anyone wants to read the screenplay now go to this link while its still up
everything I have read seems legit about this and I have no reason to doubt this source
04-08-2002, 09:53 PM
well after reading over the screenplay I feel better knowing that
there probably wont be more than one jar jar or sidious fig to collect this time around although that damn sio bibble is there
im still trying to find a swimming jar jar, sio and a holo sidious from the first movie at a decent price

KOHLS on 92 in woodstock does have some AOTC figs
if youre going to collect them dont bother going almost all are damaged plus they will set you back $8.99
I learned that the hard way when the clerk gave me the total
I picked up 2 Kit Fisto figs and one has the Force Action sticker on it and the other has the Slashing Lightsaber sticker on it
at this point I dont know which one is an error or if they will have both stickers on them at some point
Thanks GenKen for the heads up
dont bother with the KOHLS on Johnson Ferry
they dont even have a toy section
04-23-2002, 03:23 PM
does anyone have any indication which will be worth more
I would have to the think the figs with the backgrounds
still havent seen the last 6 figs on Sirs basic fig list
04-23-2002, 11:35 PM
I asked this question last week about the sticker variations and no one here could provide me with an answer but now Sir needs your help
how many people have seen the sticker variations and with what figs?
and in what regions/cities?
I have been everywhere and cant find that damn cors. security fig/emperors royal guard!!!!!
04-24-2002, 03:39 PM
I can confirm an Anakin with a small gun bubble w/o the tip with the Force Action sticker
and a background with a date of 20281
also I found a R2 without a background insert but with the insert slots
and the solid leg bolts that usually appear with a background R2
at the TRU in Kennesaw GA
its date is also 20281
sorry I cant scan you the pics but I thought you would like to
know about the other R2 variant
I would help, but I have no interest in the backgrounds as I open all of my figues. Sorry. :)
04-29-2002, 07:31 PM
according to my sources another shipment will be
made at the beginning of may (the 6th)
maybe everyone can get their hands on that dooku and royal guard now
05-08-2002, 08:53 AM
well they got another shipment in but it was the old stuff
i did finally get a hold of a royal guard
im still looking for dooku and the next wave though
let me know if anyone sees anything around ATL

TRU in Kennesaw had four Dookus last night. Not in the front, side or bins, but the back shlf of the front display there are two rows of figures, and that entire wave is there. Or was last night.
05-08-2002, 07:03 PM
can anyone else confirm this info is still valid
Im sure once I get in my speeder and head over there some
soccer mom will buy all of the dookus so her spoiled brats can tear them apart
I just wish the kids would tear apart the mass quantities of runes they have at that store for $1 instead of the collectibles
05-14-2002, 05:31 PM
I was checking my status today from an order last week for Dooku and there are no more Dookus available to buy. I also picked up another Yoda because I havent seen him around lately.
Now if I could just find the new wave somewhere!
05-19-2002, 07:39 PM
finally found the mace rescue fig at my local target
im sure they just stocked them but there was no jango luke or darth
if anyone sees a bloody luke in the area let me know
im willing to trade or buy it from you
