Darth Shinji,

Great idea to start a Mass. thread. I listed a question for you back in the New England thread about opening day at libert tree. If you get a chance post it here in the new Mass. thread

Thanks

We still have no official word from Lucasfilm on midnight screenings, or advanced sales.
Never fear, as soon as I know so will you!!:D

toys R us in Danvers/Peabody (North Shore Mall) had 5 At-St exclusives with speeder bike and Papaloo the Ewok.

Found 5 around 3:30. Then just lots of anniversary collection. Almost nothing else.

Hopefully, They are preparing for th arival. They should double their efforts. :eek:

Hey guys, me again.
Suncoast Motion Picture Company in the Liberty Tree Mall,
had 1 Hasbro Jedi Starfighter at 9:00 pm last night (Monday) for 21.99.
They get their shipment tomorrow, just like Sam Goody at the Northshore Mall.
Goody has pared down their collectables considerably in the last year, since they were bought by Best Buy.
Electronics Boutique in both the northshore mall and liberty tree gat their shipments on Wednesday.
Personaly, I'd try KMart in Danvers, and Ames in Beverly.
The Wal*Mart in Salem by the Lynn border never has crap.
(last thing I saw there was Obi-Wan---from a new hoope----LAST WEEK!!)
So here's my pattern for hunting,
Hit Danvers Wal Mart @ 7:00
Target @ 8:00
(can hit another wal mart in between but others never have anything)
TRU @ 9:30
then possibly Kmart or Ames if I'm not too frustrated.
So.....What's your plan of attack for the Hunt? :)

Here's my usual Plan of Attack on Saturdays. I usually will hit the Target in EVerett (sometime's good, sometimes bad) Froam there it's about 5 minutes to the Medford TRU and Ames is on the other end of the same plaza (I picked up Deluxe Leia and Amanaman on Saturday for $3.94 each!). Then I will either head to TRU in Cambridge and go to Newbury Comics across the street, or I will head over to WOburn (if I haven't been there lately). If I head to WOburn I will also go to the Target there as well. Unfortunatley there are no Wal-Marts on my routs, and the few times I've made the 40 minute trek to one hoping to find some early AOTC stuff, I find Jack. If anyone happens to be by a Wal mart and can pick up a couple of extra jedi figures I would be psyched. I can only pay retail and tax, but I have some coll stuff for anyone who helped me out, and I also have some good trade stuff like E.U. Kyle Katarn & Mara jade. If anyone want some deluxe figures from ames, let me know and I can pick some up. MTFBWY

Hey! Me again.
Wal-Mart in Danvers had 2 T.I.E. Bombers, and one crashed snowspeeder last night

hey YAMBAG how much were the playschool sets also are you gonna be at Peabody tru on the 23rd?

Darth Yambag
04-17-2002, 12:30 AM
Sorry Boss, but I missed the price on the playschool stuff. Missed all the prices actually. I find Newbury comics prices vary, sometimes even from 2 diff figures. ie found Aurra Sing for 13 at same time QuiGon Training for 10. Other times they are very inexpensive. ****zo. I'll think to check for prices next time.

I hope to be at TRU For midnight madness. I am going away for a week in FL (get to check out a new area, I must be a geek for wanting to see AOTC figs in FL). Then I have a presentation on the 23rd so I may need to prepare/rest. having said that, I'll likely throw caution to the wind and be there at midnight madness...

chenlembec
04-17-2002, 02:03 PM
Hey Boss,
I was over at Newbury this weekend, and the playskool stuff they had was way overpriced. It was $19.99 per set, and I think these will be around $15 at Tru. I am really ****ed about TRU's decision not to do midnight madness in woburn. I used to work there, and it is by Fra my favorits Tru around here. In fact it is the only one that kept aisle 7C in tact after they redid all of the stores. I know for a fact they had a whole crew willing to work that night, and that they would have hooked it up. There would have been pre-made sets, as well as individual pegs for each figure, so it wouldn't be a mad house, but my understanding from the manager is that only Time's suqare is doind Midnight Madness. I told him (the manager) that they are supposedly doing it in Peabody, Framingham, and Andover, and he gave me a look like I was osme kind of kook. Anyway, I live in Arlington, and If I have to drive 30 minutes to get to a store that is doing midnight madness, I will go to wal-mart. WIth the 10 cents I save per figure, it will off-set my gas money. Later!

Can we get a count of who will be @ the Peabody (or another) TRU on the 23rd?
I will for one.:D

Hellzer
04-17-2002, 10:58 PM
I'll probably be at Midnight Madness in Peabody, as much as I currently might not want to. I just know that I won't be able to resist running down there come the 11th hour, especially if some of my fellow forum brethren will be there as well. So just look out for me. I'll be the normal looking young guy. Shouldn't be that hard to spot.

Hi Guy's,
So I decide to get some China Mama for lunch today, and I get there and I say to myself, hey, let's take a quick look in Walgreens (Which is conected to China Mama) before I pick up my food, and I take a stroll down the "toy" aisle, and its crap, crap crap all through the aisle until I get to the very end of the aisle. Whats there? Thats right Collection 1 AOTC toys! The entire first wave! Unfortunatley they are $6.99 so I could only get Anakin, Jango and Kit Fisto. I just went back to pick up the super droid for my son, and they still had few figures left. What a day! I'm sorry boss, but if I am gonna drive 30 minutes for midnight madness, I'll cross the border for tax free NH! If anyone is interested in getting a car pool to head to the great white north I will look inot what stores will be doing it. Later!

04-22-2002, 08:10 PM
It looks like I'll be at the ol' TRU in Peabody as well. Once the wrasslin' is over tonight I'll hopefully be out the door. The only thing holding me back is that I don't really know what to expect. You guys think there is gonna be a big crowd? I'd like to get in and out of there as soon as humanly possible. This should be very interesting night either way.

Where the heck were you guys? i tried looking for some of you going by the clothing descriptions but everything was a blur! I wasn't expecting it to be THAT crazy. Oh well. I'll be hitting the Walmart in Danvers tomorrow morning and maybe the Salem one as well. Maybe I'll see some of you there instead.

Darth Yambag
04-23-2002, 02:01 AM
Shinji and Boss,

I think I saw and talked with you guys! I haven't been on the net most of the day and missed your last posts, but just saw them.
Shinji, if you had the red shirt and Long coat and glasses, I was talking with you. I was a big guy (shorter than you but football player like) and had a beard and a "FDNY" on. I continuously laughed at scalpers looking for some GUY named Zam and scalpers yelling I need another Captain Typho!!! Fools.
Boss, I assume you were the guy with him. I am sorry I missed introducing myself, but introducing myself to random men late at night is against my own Jedi code. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

boss nass
04-23-2002, 02:08 AM
im preety sure i seen you there yambag by the description you gave me i was the guy with the girl in the red jacket even though she was just pushing a carrage around and not near me the whole time but she was next to me in line.
so what did you get

as for hellzer,im not sure if i did see ya because you gave us no description. but hey they had the eeth kohn wave there lol and it wasn't hidden this time lol

Darth Yambag
04-23-2002, 02:09 AM
Red clone trooper - looked to cool to pass up
Luminari - I collect Jedi action figures (ie anyone who is a jedi)
Nitko - same
Obi-wan - I laugh at how he hangs the assassian droid
Saesea Tinn - Love the force blast
Zam - because that keeps them from scumbag scalpers

and most importantly...Padme! Purely because Natalie's abs and the ability to chain her up is too much to pass up. And yes, I'll see my shrink tomorrow.

Also, Had to get Anakin's speeder. Not the greatest looking and certainly doesn't fit most action figure, but it's George's homage to American Graffiti (stick). I think Harrison Ford's AG character rode the Yellow Hot Rod, but I am a lil forgettful.

I'll update , how I do tomorrow...but I don't think there's much I'll get before they mark them down. ie $30 for a Slave I that I still have from 1980 something.!!!

Darth Yambag
04-23-2002, 02:13 AM
Boss, I vaguely remember you. Your not the guy I originally thought. Did your girlfriend have on a black shirt/jacket? If so, I remember.

Hey, saw one of the Scalping Clones grab 2 Chewie POTF 12 inch. Guy thought he snagged something new. He'll get big bucks for those on Ebay!

boss nass
04-23-2002, 02:20 AM
no a red jacket and i was halfway in the line.
yes i was suprised there were quite a few scalpers there tonight
did anyone see the guy sitting on the floor yelling out which figures he needed he had like 3 royal guards and i had none and he was still yelling out to his buds that he needed more so the next one i saw them pulling out of a box i ran over and yanked it out of the box!! man the nerve of some people.
so at checkout i relized i had 2 red troopers and the dude behind me was saying how he could'nt find one so i gladly gave him mine.No big deal these figs will be warming pegs everywhere in 2 weeks

Hellzer
04-23-2002, 02:38 AM
Yea, I probably should have posted a description of what I was wearing, but my complete wardrobe is so plain that I didn't think anyone would spot me. Now I feel bad that I couldn't meet any of you. Although if any of you remember seeing a young man with brown hair and a black jacket carrying two electronic lightsabers under his arm the whole time, that was me. I think I have nerve damage in my hand from carrying those damn things around for an hour. I could barely even sign the credit card slip.

Anywhoo, here's what I snagged...

Plo Koon(!)
Saesee Tiin
Shaak Ti
Luminara Unduli
Kit Fisto(!)
Nikto(!!!)
Obi-Wan
R2-D2
Boba Fett
Jango Fett

Dooku Lightsaber
Anakin Lightsaber

I passed on the deluxe figures. I'd rather pay $3 for them in a few months. All I need is the Yoda wave and I'm good to go.

boss nass
04-23-2002, 02:42 AM
yea i saw you hellzer!!! in fact you with those sabers under your arm it reminded me to go grab my dooku lightsaber to bad i didn't know it was you!!

Hellzer
04-23-2002, 02:50 AM
Do you wear glasses, Boss? The only male/female team I remember was one where the guy was wearing glasses, and maybe blonde hair. I can't remember much since my mind was elsewhere.

I saw all those Eeth Koths too.....mocking me up there. Once I saw all of them, I thought that if I managed to find you that I was gonna give you one to repay the favor:p.

Well I'm off to bed. Gotta get up at 6:30 to get to Walmart. Glad to see everyone else had as much fun as I did. This was better than Christmas.

Just got back from the Danvers Walmart, and (as of 7am) they have the Yoda wave! I picked up Yoda, Hanger Duel Anakin, Count Dooku, and Obi-Wan's electronic lightsaber. They also have plenty of all the other waves as well. It looked like there was about 6 ot 7 sets of the Yoda wave, so I'm not sure how long they're gonna last. I should have just went there in the first place.

Darth Yambag
04-23-2002, 06:04 PM
:eek: :D :happy:

I just picked up Yoda, Anakin Hanger duel, and Dooku Sith Lord at Walmart in North Reading (exit 38 to Reading off Rt 128, stay on rt 28 for 10 min, Wallyworld on left.)

Dozens of Yoda and Ani. Gold mine. Plus a whole army of Clone trooper with red stripe and Zam Wessel.

To get Dooku, I had to break the plastic bubble that covered dozens of unopened SW boxes. They were on the crates that Walmart likes to put in the middle of the aisle. Keyed open the wave 3/collection 1 box which had 2 Dooku's!!!

Hanger Ani looks great, but he needs stronger magnets. His arm keeps falling off. And that rotating wheel in the back doesn't work for sh*t. I think I am going to buy another and glue the arm on.

Curious though, Why does Ani's Hot Rod say fits most figures and yet neither Anakin fig fits. Nor does Obi-wan. All I ask is a figure to put in the speeder. No Justice.

The search for Mace Geonosian Battle begins!!! BOL everyone:crazed: :crazed: :crazed:

Hi All,
I am out in Western Mass and wanted to let anyone know who is out this way that Walmart in Westfield have the TIE Bomber and Snow Speeder. The Toy R Us in Holyoke has 6 or 7 of the Scout Walker/Speeder Bike toy.
The WalMart in Northampton has quite a few Anakin Duel & Yodas. (but oddly enough no Obi-Wans)
I know most of you who post are from Eastern Mass, but hey you never know if there is a fellow lurker like myself from Western Mass.

Hi all,
If anyone is looking for TIE Bombers or SnowSpeeders head on out to Orange Mass WalMart. I was here this evening and they have 2 end caps of them. (16 of each)
Orange is off Route 2 for anyone who happens to be coming through.

Hi guys.
It's been a while since I could post,but it was good to meet some of you that night.
Crazy!
Even though the weather was miserable it was loads of fun.
Anyway, down to buisness.
I've heard a rumor that AotC tickets will go on sale this Friday to capitolize on the Spider-Man crowd.
When I get notice at work I will let you all know for sure.
Also, Does anyone read the SW Insider?
I contacted a group that appeared in the mag called the fighting 501st.
They do appearances to raise money for charities, and such, and I got them to come to my theater
Loews at the Liberty tree mall in danvers on may 18th (sat) from 2 to 6:00.
There will probably be at least 20 of them, appearing, Stormtroopers, Vader and such, along with a few surprises.
So, come in check it out, it will be fun, and I'll be there organizing the whole thing.

See ya later mtfbwy / hh

Great idea Shinji!! And for charity - a definate win: win.

I'll be there to check it out. I've seen them in the Insider and they look really cool. Great photo ops!

If you need help, I'd be glad to volunteer.

By the way, I think I met you on MM, but I didn't know it till reading the forum that night. Nice to meet you and I'll see you at Loews. I go there often.

Congrats on brilliant plan for the 18th...

And Les, welcome! You never know when I'll be in Amherst for Antonio's Pizza, so any updates from that area are greatly appreciated....

Anyone found any inkling of the Bespin wave yet? I thought lady luck would be on my side, what with me snagging the elusive Dooku on the 23rd, but so far I haven't seen a trace of any of the figures. I still can't find any of those damn lightsaber keychains either. If anyone needs a Dexter Jettster though, they got a good amount of them at the Danvers Target.

Darth Shinji, I saw the flyers for the Fighting 501st when I went to see Spider-Man yesterday morning. I'll try my best to make it there. Do you think the Saturday (18th) morning/afternoon AOTC showings will possibly sell out? Thatís the soonest Iíll hopefully be able to go, and unfortunately my work schedule has been all over the place lately, so I canít really buy advance tickets. I could buy them the night before at the soonest off Fandango or something; just as long as everyone else doesnít :p .

Happy hunting guys (and gals?).

I just came from the Dedham TRU on Route 1 and they have plenty of the Bespin wave. Mostly Mace, but also many Lukes, Vaders, and Jango. Unfortunately, everyone that I picked up had a crease on the back. Most were very light, but I am very picky with my figures. So if you are not looking for C-10 card back, head on over. I guess they probably put out about 5 cases. The Walmart in Walpole on Route 1 had nothing..........

Hellzer
05-09-2002, 06:45 PM
Found the Bespin wave today at the TRU in Woburn. Unfortunately, some greedy individual snatched up all the Lukes, but they had plenty of Mace Windus, some Jangos, and 2 or 3 Vaders. They also had a good amount of Taun We's, Royal Guards, and Dexters. I'm gonna have to go there more often.

One thing that bothers me is that Eeth Koth, who alluded me for over six months, is now officially a frickin' pegwarmer. He's EVERYWHERE! And thanks to that, I'll probably never see the BoShek wave.

Damn, and I thought I was the lucky one, jake. I would have loved to get my hands on a Luke figure today no matter what the card condition was, since I'm an opener anyway.
Well at least it's good to see that the wave is starting to get around.

05-09-2002, 07:10 PM
Well if you are still in Essex, it's a hike. If not, take route 128 south to Rt 1. Once you get on Rt. 1, turn around and head north. You will come to the TRU a couple of miles down on your right. The entrance is tricky. Once you come to the set of lights where Uno's is on your left, you go through those lights and enter a bear off on your right. It's the only way to get into the parking lot. Good luck...........

I have my tickets for the first show at the Loews Liberty Tree Mall Theatre in Danvers!!! Plus, I have a copy of Shinji's flyer for the 501st legion. I hope to draw one into a corner, and pull a Han Solo, switch into their costume. Yes, then see AOTC all day for free with my Stormtrooper outfit. Just like penetrating the Death Star...


Great to hear about the Bespin Wave. Hope its moving to the North Shore.

Darth Yambag
05-10-2002, 08:55 PM
Went to Woburn TRU around 5. picked up Vader. For anyone who wants, I hid one. It's in the same aisle near the end on the opposite side. Next to the Matrix 12 inch figs there's some 12 inch line with a yellow and orange box. plenty of space...and a Bespin Vader and Final Battle Jango.

They also had 12 inch Mace (1 left, and plenty of Geo. Rescue). Good luck

Lukes but thet still Vader and Mace.

I found six unopened cases of the Bespin wave at the Cambridge TRU. I opened each and every one of them attempting to find a Vader without creases on the back of the card. I didn't have any luck. Has anyone been able to find one in gem mint condition???

Hellzer
05-10-2002, 11:01 PM
The Cambridge TRU sounds like the place to be. Unfortunately it's just too far away for me Jake, and I'm sure I'd get lost trying to find it. Thanks for the help anyway. I'm probably going up to the Danvers TRU tomorrow morning to exchange my Clonetrooper with the paint job error (you might have seen it on the SSG main page), so I'll check there. From what Darth Yambag reported, it seems the Woburn TRU has been sucked dry.

jake
05-11-2002, 08:27 AM
Has anyone seen the Qui Gon, Orn Free Ta, Endor Soldier, Massif wave??? I have only heard of it showing up at Walmarts so far...........

My brothers, I hit PAYDIRT this morning at the Danvers TRU. They got about 6 pegs full of the Bespin wave and it appeared that there were many Lukes and Vaders to go around. But they also got Dooku, Luminara, Yoda, and the BoShek wave! I picked up a Bespin Luke, Mace just for the hell of it, and an R4-M9. I can't believe my good luck. Get over there pronto if you need any of those.

If you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go sniff my mouse droid for a while now.

Darth Yambag
05-11-2002, 04:24 PM
Thanks for the heads up Hellzer. I hit Danvers TRU around 2:30 and there were no more Luke's. Just Vader, Mace and flame throwing Jango. Also, the Boshek wave was gone. I have failed.

I must find Luke.

Danvers Walmart, Target, and KB had the usual but no Bespin wave.

Dang, someone cleaned them right out. That sucks. There were at least 2 or 3 Lukes left when I was there. I didn't scour the pegs since the one I grabbed was right in front. In hindsight, I probably should have hidden one or bought an extra so one of my fellow MA collectors can get one as well. If I ever see Luke again, I'll be sure to do one of the two.

The whole BoShek wave was gone too? They were kind of tucked away in the left corner of the main Star Wars section across from the registers. Did you check there for them? I think there were two full pegs.

You know, does anyone else have a sneaking suspicion that local scalpers could possibly be scoping these threads and are beating us to the punch? We should devise a new system for the bigger finds and see what happens.

I think the scalper theory is valid. I have seen tons of the Bespin wave in the past two days. The Dedham and Cambridge TRU had tons of them yesterday. Plenty for everyone. The creased Vaders are killing me. Has anyone found one without creases on the back yet??? Any luck with the Qui-Gon wave yet??? I heard that someone found them at the Westborough Walmart today. Only two of each though........

Found the Qui-Gon wave at N.Attleboro Walmart. There wasn't much left of it though.
They did have a lot of Dookus and Yodas though.

jake
05-13-2002, 06:51 PM
I hit just about every place you can imagine in the past 3 days. Not much left of the Bespin wave at any of the TRU. Dedham still has a few Lukes, Vaders, Mace, and Jango hanging around. Not a thing found at any Walmart. Where is the Qui Gon wave?????!!!

Scored the JANGO 12 inch ultimate villian! Last one at Woburn TRU. He will rule with all his weapons and armor. Of course first my Jenna Jameson exclusive figure will take his armor off and show him why she's the "heartbreaker". I look forward to adding a 12 inch Zam to this scenario. Therapy is going well, why do you ask?

Also had the entire Bespin Wave. Still looking for Boshek and R4_M9.

I noticed it's been kinda quiet on the MA finds front, so I thought I'd go on an all out toy blitz for everyone's benefit.

First off, I found the Orn Free Ta wave at the Danvers North Shore Mall KB-Toys. They had 1 Orn Free, 2 Massifs, and 2 or 3 Qui-Gons. The only thing is that they're not located with the other SW figs in the front of the store, instead they make up one single row in the main action figure isle right before the WWF stuff. That's probably why most of them are still there. Also the KB-Toys in Beverly has a bunch of Endor soldiers and Qui Gons as well, but those are mixed in with rest of the SW stuff.

The ony good thing I found at the Danvers TRU was 1 single solitary Dooku. It's located in the middle kiosk before the main display, but I'm sure at this point it's already gone. They also had the Bespin wave scattered about, but no Lukes anywhere.

Danvers Walmart had jack squat in the way of any new stuff.

Finally, I'm finding that Ames is becoming more and more like a good hidden commodity for HTF stuff. The store in Gloucester not only has a whole bunch of Yodas and HD Anakins, But they also had the elusive R2-Q5! I gleefully snagged one for myself, but there's still one left if you're really desparate.

On a side note, the new Marvel Legends figures are out as well. Today I picked up the Huk and Iron Man, but no matter where I went, there were no Captain America's to be found. I fear he might turn into the Dooku of the Marvel universe, so if anyone sees the Captain America figure in any store within or near the Danvers/Peabody area, please let me know. Thanks.

Hello all, This is the artist formally known as "Darth Yambag." I went on vacation for over a week and when I got back...I couldn't for the life of me remember the password.

I was in Florida and they have the same Saga stuff here... I like the detail of Orn fra Tee but I don't care to buy the big fat man with out his2 lady friends. New Quigon is so bad. Is it that Hasbro can't see that His Cloak doesn't cover his shirt or were they trying to bring sleeveless cloaks into style... I love QuiGon but...

Want Palpatine and Obi pilot and they should be coming soon. Anyone heard seen the Yellow or Red Clone Trooper at KB? (12 inch)

Darth Shinji, congrats on the success of the 501st. I stopped by that day and thought it was great! I'd like to find out how to become a member of the 501st. If you have any info, please let me know...and keep me posted as to when they are coming back.

Not even Ames could help me with this one. But I forgot to post that I actually found a Captain America last Saturday at the Woburn TRU. And while I was rummaging around, one of the employees there asked if I was looking for anything special. So I asked if he'd seen that gold variant Iron Man yet, and he said "sure have", went out to the stockroom, and came back out with a shiny new one for me. That made me quite the happy fanboy to say the least. I was so grateful that I bought one of the hundred or so $1.97 Ep1 Nute Gunrays that they can't get rid of.

I wish Hasbro would look into wall-mountable displays for Star Wars figures. That's the main reason I love these Marvel Legends as well as Spider-Man Classics so much. They're great when you've got plenty of wall-space but damn near no shelf-space left like I have.

Darth Detori

Prices at Danvers TRU dropped to $4.99, but they didn't have anything new. Also, all other prices remained the same.

Kohls sells toys? I thought that they were just an apparel-type store. How big was their toy section? Either way it's good news since apparently they're opening a new Kohls in the Danvers Liberty Tree Mall where Ann & Hope used to be. That'll make up for the departure of the nearby K-Mart.

Darth Detori
06-08-2002, 10:49 PM
EXACTLY what people think, which is what makes Kohl's my own little personal source ;)
they have a small selection, though no-one knows about it so they usually have stuff.

oh, and I also picked up an Endor han for $13 at newbury comics in Burlington. I paid the $13 because I had $700 on me ;)

Darth Yambag
06-08-2002, 11:14 PM
Detori, How is the Endor Han? Is his arm/holster action any good or cheesy?

I've seen him there also, but questioned if he was worth $13. Same with Palpetine, although it was a great sculpt. Chewie or ObiWan pilot I'd snag...but apartently others felt the same.

My friends and I made our 'toy run' and this time I ventured to Salem N.H. I had never been there before and was suprised at all the stores. (I am from Western Mass so Salem is about a 90 minutes drive) We started out at the mall and found KB, we got a Pilot Obi and a Han but no Chewie in sight. :(
Then we went down the road to a Target and I went in there and one of my friends walked over to Ames. A Target employee was just opening a case of Qui-Gon wave and stopped at first when we came to the aisle. Then we chatted with him for a few minutes and I noticed their sign about limiting quantities and told them that was great that they were doing that. He then felt at ease and started putting up the figures. I didn't need any of them but my friend that was over to Ames did so I grabbed a Massiff and a Qui-Gon for him. We met my friend in the paking lot and he was playing with his newly aquired Yoda, he said they had more Dookus than he has ever seen before and also many of the HD Ani & Yoda. He bought 2, one for him to play with and another for his coworker who wanted it. We couldn't find Toys 'R Us for quite awhile and almost gave up when we saw it sticking out behind Kmart. <g> We found some of the Bespin wave and my friend bought a Vader to open. There was a greasy guy there who was pacing as we were looking at the figures and we really wanted to buy the whole wave just to make him go away, but we didn't. <g> We did hang out enough though to help a family find a few figures, that was fun.
Oh, and the KB mentioned above has the red & yellow 12" Clone Troopers, they are not up front they are in the back aisle. I stopped collectimg the 12" so I didn't buy any.

My friend said Ames had an end cap with figures. Yoda, Dooku & Ani in bountiful supply. They are still $6.99, but if you really want a figure I don't think that that is unreasonable.

I am still missing Chewie and I hope I get hime soon. <g> I hate missing a figure that I really want. ;)

Les S.

P.S. The Toys R' Us in Leominster stock figures onThursday mornings. Last Thursday I was driving by and somehow my car got off the highway and into the parking lot without me knowing. <g> They had TONS of Bespin wave. I saw atleast 20 Lukes, 25 Vaders and many, many Mace. I didn't need any so I left and stopped by on my way home (about 3 hours later) and EVERY Luke was gone. :( Still plenty of Vaders, so that tells me that it was a scalper. (I would think that most fans would buy one of each, because they look SO COOL together.

There were two sets of the new unleashed Jango and Maul at the TRU In Dedham tonight. I left them there because I have already preordered them. The Jango is incredible and the Maul is OK. Not bad at $14.99 each. The Walmart, Kohls, and KB in Walpole had nothing today. I did score a Bloody Stump Luke at the KB in Newton today. I never thought I'd see one on the pegs!

Hi all,
I doubt this wil help many of you but I figured I would post it in case someone was out in Central Mass. At the west Boylston Walmart they put out 9 cases of Orn Free.Massiff wave. I did pick up another Massiff but I was suprised at how many cases they had of this wave. They also had 4 cases of the new 'deluxe' figure wave. The case has 2 Ani, 2 Nexu, 1 Obi and 1 Jango.

I was asked to pick up my Bosses daughter today down near Worcester and I made a few stops along the way. <g> I saw more of the Bespin Wave at the Auborn Toy R' Us and at the Target I picked up another Obi Pilot. (I really like this figure, he can hold his lightsaber with both hands)

The KayBee in Auborn had the 12" troopers Red & Yellow and they also had Yoda Dooku & Ani.

That is all for now, hopefully there is a lurker who lives somewhat near there who can make use of the info.

They advertise in the Sunday paper and yet they've had empty pegs for the last several weeks. It is tough to say something doesn't sell well if you don't stock it.

Amhest Wal-Mart had been thinning out their shelves recently for some unknown reason. Last night I found out why.

You damn right. Let's all get a time-share in L.A. or some other place where everything seems to be more bountiful. That'll solve our problem.

In other news, the 12" Ultimate Jango is frickin' awesome. I'm so glad I overcame my objections of buying one. It takes a while to get the whole outfit on properly, and I had to do a little customizing work to get the shin guards to fit to my liking, but once he's all put together it's an amazing sight to behold. I always have to blurt out "Dont move....Jedi" in my best quasi-Australian accent every time I walk by him.

Hello boyos,

It's Saturday and I got nothing to do so that means another massive toy run!

Danvers Target had 2 Deluxe Anakins and 1 Nexu, as well as 1 Bespin Luke. But that's irrelivent since....

Danvers Walmart had TONS of the Bespin wave, including multiple Lukes and Vaders. Good to see they finally put out a good supply of new product; only not new enough though.

Peabody TRU had 1 Unleashed Darth Maul left. The wierd part is the gargantuan Star Wars display they had in the front of the store is completely gone, but I couldn't find where they relocated all those hundreds of figures. I should have checked the dumpster.

North Shore Mall KB-Toys had a few Endor Soldiers hanging around.

Woburn TRU (my personal fav) had 2 or 3 Ultimate Jangos, as well as some POTJ Imperial Officers, Rebel Troopers, FX-7s, and blue Royal Guards if anyone needs still needs them. One cool thing the employees did there was put up one of the Saga posters in the SW section and place little Post-it notes on all the new figures saying things like "Coming Soon" or "Out of Stock". That way I didn't have to ask them in order to be disappointed.

KB in Burlington Mall had a few Maul and Jango Unleashed, only they're priced at $18 a pop. Bastards....

I stopped by a Kohls right off the highway before getting to Woburn as well. They had Star Wars stuff but only a very small amount of the same Collection 1 pegwarmers. Oh well.

No signs whatsoever of the Acklay, Pilot Obi-wan, or the Palpatine waves. My luck is starting to run dry over here.

If you don't need one in mint condition, Boss, I saw a 12" Slave Leia in a damaged box at the Woburn TRU that was discounted down to $10. It's located at the very back-left wall of the store in the clearance section. And please pick up one of the countless Nute Gunrays they still have left over while you're there. That store doesn't deserve to be stuck with all of them.:cry:

Major score at the Danvers Walmart. They've finally caught up and then some. Not only do they still have plenty of the Bespin wave, but they also put out the Qui-Gon wave, the Pilot Obi-wan wave, Palpatines, Djas Phurs, AND a bunch of the new Ki-Adi Mundi and Teetmo whatever. They only thing they didn't have was one single friggin Chewie! Damn scalpers.... :mad:

I wish for an onslaught of Chewies, Bossk. You should consider yourself lucky. I stumbled across Ki-Adi and Teetmo at the Danvers Walmart Monday afternoon, but apparently they barely lasted the rest of the day. And after visiting WM for the third day in a row tonight, I have STILL not been able to find a mother friggin' Chewbacca. :frus: :frus: :frus: :frus: It's amazing how a store can go from have a ton of some figure one minute, and then almost literally having none the next.

After reading your posts the other night I went to my local Wal Mart in Fairhaven and there were 6 Chewies. As of yesterday there were still 3 Chewies there. They also had a crap load of Han and Obis. Dartmouth obviously didn't get that wave but they were heavily stocked yesterday with 5 or 6 Teemto and 3 Ki Adis. They also had a ton of Djas Puhr figures. No Anakin or Maul to be had and still no Palpatine. Those are the only 3 I need. If they have more of that wave in the morning I could hide a couple. I know its out in the sticks but its better than nothing.

Finally scored a Chewbacca at my absolute favorite store, the Woburn TRU. It was the last one they had, so everyone go to the Danvers store to get yours. I also got the new MOTU figures (just the heroes). Very nice indeed.

I've been thinking that maybe if anyone has a major find, that they should just private message the MA regulars and see what the results are success-wise. Maybe I'm just being too paranoid here, but I myself, as well as a few of you others, think that possibly scalper-types are reading these posts and beating us to the punch. I'm really getting tired of all the new stuff getting gobbled up by some unknown force while we're left in the dust. More than likely it won't help at all, but I'd like to try it once to see what happens anyway.

I'm also gonna start hiding figures and maybe buying extras to mail out when I come across something good. It's gone from collecting to geurilla warefare, but it seems that such actions need to be taken in order to find what we're looking for. Is anybody with me? Anyone?? Hello?............ .:confused:

I haven't posted in awhile, I think since coming back from C2, but I just thought I'd let you all know if anyone needs a bloody stump luke they should get over the burlington mall Kaybee, as I am about to return 2 of them there after discovering that the most I would get off of ebay was 10 bucks. Whay do they call things rare, when they're not? Later.

No new finds to report, but I just want everyone to know that I went to the Walmart in North Reading, and they've put all their basic SW figs on sale for $3.10!:eek: According to the sale sign, they're competing with "another store's" sale price, although this appears to be a week long unlike K-Mart. None of the other Walmarts I went to had any sale whatsoever so go take advantage of this. They had pretty much everything up to the Chewie wave.

And if anyone sees a MOTU Mer-Man, please let me know. I can't find the little fishy bugger anywhere.

Of particular note, the speeder chase through Coruscant was 100 times better because of the clarity and detail. you can see details of the vehicles that you don't realize are blurred out on the film.
Looking forward to the DVD and highly recommend a trip to the digital Big Screen.

Seems like things are starting to dry up around here. The most recents items I came across today were some scattered remains of the new Action Fleet stuff at assorted Walmarts. All the Targets I went to seemed to be clearing out their action figure isles. There was more empty space than anthing else. Wierd.... :confused: I did go to the KB Toy Works in Salem and picked up a 12" POTF2 Emperor Palpatine on clearance for $8. That was the oldest SW item I've ever seen in any store. They also had a 12" Lando, but I passed on it for some stupid reason. I might have to go back and get one. I also saw some Yodas for the first time in a while at the Beverly KB.

And still no sign of Mer-Man whatsoever.:frus: :frus: :frus: He's become Mattel's answer to the infamous Count Dooku drought.

*tumbleweeds roll by......*

It has really seemed to dry up around here. After a massive search today, the only new finds were the action fleet sets and a deluxe 3PO at the Rt. 1 Target in Saugus. Not a single new basic fig past the Chewie wave anywhere. I did find the Playskool Millennium Falcon at Square One Mall KB (the only one they had), which I'll be giving to my soon-to-be nephew who's gonna be born litterally any minute now. I know the box says "ages 3 and up" but you can never start too soon;) .

Finally found MER-MAN(!!) too, BTW, at the Salem Walmart. He was harder to find than any other SW item that I can ever remember. Finding Chewbacca was a walk in the park compared to this ordeal; although now you can find Chewbacca EVERYWHERE, just to spite me.:dead:

I was speaking of this (http://systems.figures.com/database/index.html?page=detail&sdomid=5&sitemid=29065) Deluxe C-3PO that comes with the battledroid with interchangable heads.

And Mer-Man is from the re-launched Masters of the Universe line. He's incredibly short-packed; about a 1 out of 30 ratio from what I hear. It took me a better part of a month of intense searching to finally find one. Now I'm hearing that ol' Ram Man is starting to hit retail, so I guess there's no rest for the weary. My search for him starts tomorrow.

I haven't seen any news waves either past the Chewie one since mid July when I came across Ki-Adi and Teemto at WM. This is really getting rididulous. I got so fed up the other day that I went and ordered the new 12" Dooku off of Amazon.com, which should be arriving at my door tomorrow. That's a hell of a lot easier than coming home empty handed week after week.

And what time did you go to the Danvers TRU, Boss, because I was there around 3pm and didn't see a single Mer-Man. How many did they put out? Good thing I already have one or else I'd be mighty ticked.

well I snooped around the backroom today, and all I found were alot of the old waves. I grabbed the last landspeeder, since it was on the shelf for a while and didn't go anywhere.

Just recieved the 12 inch Ki-Adi Mundi from the Fan Club. A VERY good addition to the 12inch line. Great detail and attention was spent on the clothing. The lighsaber hilt is quite detailed.

Overall, some of ...dare I say... Hasblah's finest work. Highly recommended.

Boss, what's the difference between the $31.99 and the $39.99 Optimus Primes? I havent' been keeping up with the reissues. Hopefully the boxes aren't too big or else I'm gonna have a hard time hiding one for you.:D

BTW got my 12" Dooku in the mail today. Yambag was right, the headsculpt on this guy is unprecedented. The outfit is top notch as well. I can't say enough good things about him. If you don't collect 12" stuff, this is a good one to start with.

Even Lando can't help but admire the craftsmenship......

well unfortunantly I can't put stuff on hold for other people (I don't want to get fired on my second day ;), but I'll check it out and see if we have any. I'm on one of two registers that's next to the other register, so if it leaves the building I'll know. I'll post as soon as I get in.
yay 9-hour day!

alright man, I found two optimus primes, but one of them definantly looked like a reissue! there were PLENTY of them, so you should be all set. Stop by before 4 and go to register 7- the names Justin by the way :)
see you then!

oh, and as far as the R2's go, there's this bulletain board in the back broken down into departments- apparently the info on new stuff is sent to them every now and then and then they print it up and put it on the wall- the info that's up right now in regards to SW mentions the x-wing, landspeeder (which we have plenty of now), and everything up to and including the han wave. looks like it'll be a short while till we get in the new waves :p. Actually, if anyone can tell me what the case numbers are for new stuff, I could probably sneak around in the back and check it out

Plenty of Landspeeder's at Danvers TRU. Picked one up, looks great in the box and I am ususally an opener. May have to pick up another. Great detail.

Besides, this was the first vehicle I got back in 1977....

The TRU in Revere had a bunch of the new landspeeders as well. They also had quite a few Unleashed Anakins, but none of the others. And STILL no new regular figures anywhere I went to.:frus:

EDIT: Forgot to mention that the Walmart is Salem had a plethora of the Cantina sets, including many Greedos.

Hellzer, thanks for the Anakin Unleashed info.

Still looking for Unleashed Vader if anyone has info...

Went the the usual places today. Only new item was a Deluxe Yoda at the Danvers Target, and the card was bent for you non-openers. This is starting to get really depressing. Do they still make Star Wars figures? I can't tell anymore. Thanks God I collect other stuff or else I'd go insane.

BTW, does anybody else here collect Dragonball Z? I'v been finding HTF stuff like crazy lately, and I've got an extra Yellow Hair Majin Vegeta (for face value of course) if any of you need one or know who does.

Well, I found the S. Nashua Retail District last night. Jeez there is a lot of stores up there. I visited the KB Toys, Target and TRU (Is that the one you work at Detori?). The Target had one hoth set left, and the Voice Activated R2D2. Nothing new for figures. KB had nothing new at all. And TRU had Landspeeders (Which I picked up) and the 12" Luke W/ TaunTaun (Holy ***** is that thing huge or what?).

I hope I can find T.A. Anakin and Maul before I die.

Darth Detori
09-12-2002, 02:51 PM
yep! that's where I work. I was there until 5.

and if you REALLY want to go looking for Maul and Ani, go down to North Attleboro TRU

Prince Xizor
09-12-2002, 05:32 PM
Where is North Attleboro? I am in Lowell right now, so how far from here is it? (I don't really know much around here. It took me awhile just to find Nashua.)

Dude N.Attelboro is a hike for anyone who lives in the northern part of Ma.It's near RI

Darth Detori
09-12-2002, 09:24 PM
yeah, I've only been there on the way down to my relative's houses and they live in RI, and that's about two hours away.
STILL, they DO have stuff there- they had tons of maul's and ani's when I was there about two or three weeks ago- oh, and they had CA Padme's too

Rhode Island eh? Probably be cheaper to buy them off eBay then waste the gas going down there.

Thanks Anyway.

I came back home for the weekend (W. Mass) and checked out TRU and Target. Target had nothing as usual but I was pleasently surprised then quickly dissapointed when I got to TRU. TRU had the new Landspeeder and the new Unleashed. The had Anakin and Padme, but no F'N Vader. Augh! I was getting sick of not getting anything new so I picked up Anakin. Its pretty cool but I still want Vader more.

Hellzer
09-14-2002, 08:17 PM
Usual places today. Nothing new. Same old same old. It's getting so bad that I actually had a dream the other night that I found TA Anakin and Darth Maul. They had Ki-Adi and Teetmo too but I already found them anyway. It was nice to see the new stuff in my dream world at least. That's about the only place I'm going to.

You know I'm really against paying inflated online scalper prices, but the way this is going I might have to really soon.

**EDIT**
Sorry, I did fine something new. The TRU in Revere had a couple 12" Lukes w/ TaunTaun. I do want one, but not for that price. I'll get it on clearance, or maybe a Christmas present. Hey...there's an idea.:)
