The Target status over the last few weeks has been quite interesting. I find it hard to believe that they were sold out of OTC and preview wave figs.

We'll see tomorrow if they finally get it together.

Is Target supposed to have a special ROTS set-up or is it going to be a war in the toy isle?

Radford WM had the tent set up with tons of pallets init. Thye cleared ALL SW merch fromnthe store including food promos. The only toys left were preview figs and lightsabers. It all starts at 8am tomorrow morning. Good luck to all tonight. May the FOrce be with you...

Saw the Target cups today - Obi, Grievous and a very nice looking Clonetrooper. Skipping MM and doing the other MM (Morning Madness) since no WM nearby is doing a tent event.

I picked up the holo yoda and 21 other figs, 2 deluxe figs, and the barc speeder at TRU in Frederick tonight. I can't even begin to imagine the amount of money they pulled in tonight. A friend of mine spent over $350. I was lucky to get away for $169. The figs are $5.29 until next week. Oddly enough, they didn't have a huge range of assortments. It looks like they got a couple palettes of wave 1 and wave 2. No sign of the wave 3 and 4 figures. Oh well maybe tomorrow at Target or WM.

I've found 1-32 in Frederick. I also picked up both guard variations and the lavav vader this morning. The clone trooper cup looks like a must have, but target sold out in 3 seconds. I also haven't picked up an ARC 170 yet. They disappear immediately.

Well, I just got done with my MMing, having gone to TRU at midnight, then shooting over to WM then waking up at 7 this morning to go to Target then WM again for the exclusive, and am quite pleased with what I got. I found figures 1-32, the deluxe figures, the Target Micros, the WM exclusive x 2, the Target exclusive x 2, and I bought the TRU exclusive online.

I'm gonna wait until next month for the figures above 32 (if they're out), the vehicles, the Unleashed, and the 12" along with anything else that strikes my fancy.

Hope everyone had fun and found everything that they wanted.

I didnt do the MM thing, but I went to Target and grabbed lava vader along with a blue and a red guard. They only had twored guards there. Headed over to Radofrd WM and scored about 20 figs there. I left some of the foreseeable pegwarmers and grabbed the rest. ALso grabbed Tater, 2 puzzels and the Vader Lego Table. Glad everyone got some great scores.

I went to Hagerstown TRU for MM and had a good time. I went to Wal Mart about 12:30 and it was a mess. People were being nuts! I spotted figures 33-40 in some carts. Mostly all in a few jerks carts. They were there. This made me really anxious to pick these up. So I drove all the way down to Martinsburg, WV WM. There was nobody there (yee-haw) and I was excited! However, they didn't open all the cases! I saw Collection 2 Wave 2 & 3 so I opened them. They dept manager started flipping out! I was able to get the AT-TE Drive & Medical Droid before she took the cases away from me. Gotta love Wild, Wonderful, West Virginia!

Great scores everyone...especially MM74 who managed to obtain some over #32. I got #1-32 also(last 4 were toughies, found some at Glen Burnie Target on Rte. 3 after I nabbed my exclusive. That same Target was the only place I saw ARC-170 vehicles. Had my hands on the first 2 battle arenas at Glen Burnie..put them back...never saw them again anywhere else. The Annapolis Toys R Us was the only location I saw the AT-RT vehicle w/driver. Never saw red guard anywhere. Happy hunting...and now...precious sleep!

Hey guys...just some F.Y.I. As of 7 PM tonight(Sat.) the Early Bird certif. special was online at WalMart.com for 29.88. It wasn't on there this morning???They had some higher number figures shown this am, but were gone now...probably sold out! The early bird certificate is under SW Ep. III toy section. Good luck if interested!

Hope everyone had a successful weekend. I was able to find a Red guard yesterday, and found #33 - 36 early this am at the Target at Springfield. Only saw one of each out though. None of the three other Targets I checked had anything past #32.
KM was a joke both yesterday and today. Yesterday a very obnoxious manager at the Annandale KM very strongly informed another collector and I we were very mistaken, "The Star Wars toys are not onsale until April 3!" I told it was no wonder her company is in financial trouble with misinformation and attitudes like hers. Hated to be rude, but her demeanor towards us was even worse. Today the Springfield KM had maybe two cases out on an endcap with a low, low price of $6.99 plastered on the front.

Now for the questions:
Did anyone find the WM Early Bird anywhere other than Hagerstown?
I bought both the Boga/Obi and BARC and saw the AT, but are the figures are stuck in that "uncomfortable" pose? If so, back they go.

Congrats to everyone, esp. mm74md & Major Karr on finding figs above #32.

MM wasn't too bad this year. I started off by going up to Potomac Mills WalMart around 11:40pm and was about 15th in line. Since I figured that 1-32 would be only ones out, I only needed to grab 10 figs since I lucked out & already had 22. Well, the clock stuck midnight and everyone was allowed down the figure aisle. What a mess. A narrow aisle & 4-5 shopping carts along with 20-30 people just don't work. Everyone was civil and polite, but it was just too crowded.
After grabbing the 10 figs I needed I went out to the TRU in Manassas in the hopes of grabbing a Holo Yoda. RIGHT. The toy manager said that they only got in 24 and that they were gone within a minute. Decided to head back home for some much needed sleep. The employees there were pretty cool in allowing people to go through the 20 or so cases of figs that they had on a pallet.
Woke up early and headed for the W-M in Dumfries. Opened at 7 and there was about half a dozen collectors there, but everyone was nice & courteous. No fighting over figs. Plenty of room too since their SW display was on an end section, right next to the main aisle. Wish Pot. Mills set-up was like this. Didn't find anything over #32, but they did have several red guards.
Went to Target near Pot.Mills and scored the Lava Vader. Nice figure, but jeez............$12.99. Had some time to kill before TRU opened so I went to Dale City KMart to see what they had. Same as everyone else.....nothing above #32, but the figs are $6.99. They had several of the red guards.
Went to TRU around 9:40 and found about 6 people waiting outside already so I decided to get in line. Good thing I did, within the next 10 minutes the line was over 25 people long. The manager came out & said that the store only recv'd 12 Holo Yodas and to get them from the cust. service desk. Luckily I grabbed one. That was the only fig I needed to complete my "list". Didn't see a single red guard there.
From there it was on to the last stop of the day, Borders. Grabbed the novel and then off to home and some much needed sleep.
Hope everyone had a great evening/night/morning. Anyone notice the 2 different Deluxe "Anakin to Vader"s? Sorry for the long post, but finding new figs kinda makes me feel like that little kid again, back in '78, finding a new R2 or Luke.

Did the drive to Bowie, Laurel, Columbia, Ellicott City & back to Glen Burnie...no figs. over #32(all had plenty of those!) Haven't seen red sentry yet. A coupla employees told me Hasbro doesn't want #33 & above put out yet. Found two battle arenas in good shape. Also noticed a 12" Palpy with the hood up! Whats the difference with the two deluxe Anakin/Vader transfo.??? Someone told me they didn't get all the access. or something?

Don't know about the AT, but the Obi with Boga is, as you say, "stuck in that 'uncomforatble' pose." However, I got it for Boga: reminds me of my beloved dewback of old. Plus, if you ever need an Obi with constipation action, well...

Frederick is still flooded with 1-32. I'm not sure we'll see anything new for a few weeks till this gets sold down. Amazon.com had the arc 170 and the evolution packs last night (the last ones for pre-order.) I think I'll wait and try to find them in the stores though.

Sorry I didn't post this earlier, but I found 3 red gaurds at Boscovs on 40 in Frederick on Saturday morning. I nabbed two, so I would imagine the other is still there.

Oh, and if anyone was wondering...Kohl's doesn't have any SW figs this time around for some reason. Too bad, as I found some great stuff during the AOTC era.

Good luck hunting!

While it was fantastic to see a lot of new product on the shelves overall my 4/2 hunt was a let down.

As posted elsewhere the 8 year-old had saved $25 with specific wants - especially the Clone Commander.

Three stops later I can say that there are going to be some SERIOUS peg warming issues and that we still do not own a Clone Commander.

Highlights of the purchases include:

Darth Tater (for the 8 week old)
Clone Trooper Blaster
Tarfuls
Grievous 4 Arm Attack
Bodyguard

No vehicles or Legos just yet. Plenty of time to find them.

Did not score Lava Vader and decided against the WM exclusive. Probably will regret it eventually...

I should have added...

While I have no plans to get into Attacktix I did get three complimentary ones at the WM tent.

Glad to hear you nabbed it! No, nothing over #32. Haven't run into anyone who has, either. I bumped into a nice collector at Glen Burnie Toys R Us...he actually hadn't found the basic clonetrooper. I told him Columbia WalMart has like 25 of the suckers. Please keep me in mind if you do find them and there are extras. I will do the same for you. Good luck!

Well, I have found nothing new. I did go to WM and have them priuce match my lay-a-way to Targets sale, saved 9 bucks. Also while atTarget this morning I grabbed one of the DV Gift Cards. SInce the are not for sale, I just left with it. It is not stealing because it cant be used and has no value to it.

I asked my local target and they said there was a 5 dollar minimum. But what you could do would be put the 5 on it then go buy a figure with it and see if they'll let you keep the card. I never tried this but it may work.

Has anyone scored anything ocer #32 in this area?

04-07-2005, 07:10 PM
I actually wanted to buy the Battle Arena's but the one's at TRU were kinda beat up. The window box looks great and the "Try Me" feature is really cool. The figures move smoothly on the bases and they move in about every direction. If you see 'em I'd buy it. For $20 they're a good buy.

I've yet to see the AT-RT or any figures over #32 but I'm not worried. They'll be here eventually.

EDIT: Figures are on sale at WM for $4.94.

My wife scored the mother(no pun) lode at North Glen Burnie WalMart, and picked up #33-40 for me. She said she had to dig to find them, and didn't see extras anywhere. They placed some on an endcap also, she mentioned.

Actually, this was second hand info. My friend Dave got me a Palpatine, but they only had one Grievous and he got it. I just thought I'd post so people could check their local Targets. I met Sean McFripp saturday morning at Target and he said they usually stock Friday mornings. (That's a little too early for me to get over there.) Good luck this weekend though.

Your insight serves you well...for I nabbed two Clone Pilots earlier that day. I actually meant to post this yesterday, but I was pretty busy when I got back to work. Someone must have horded the Clone Commanders though, cuz they were nowhere to be found. Odd that someone would have left the pilots. I'm not complaining. After work, I went and picked up the ARC fighter over at TRU on 40 (of which they still have oodles).

Dave must have come right after me, because I left two Palps and a Grievous behind. Grievous has that awful white finish that the Wheelbike pack-in has, so I that's why I passed. Palps just didn't do it for me for some reason.

As far as the restocking thing goes, I've been hitting Target every day, and there's been evidence of restocking pretty much every time. As far as I can tell though, they're getting their stuff in from the trucks late Sunday nights, and then it's supposed to hit the floor by Tues morning. Fridays still seem to be my lucky day though.

Any Frederick area folks find SW stuff at any odd places, like CVS or Rite Aid? In past years, I've found that drug and grocery stores usually stock up on SW figs when the movie is actually released. It's not a bad idea to start checking, because they always seem to get the odd cases with harder to find stuff. CVS and Superfresh were very good to me back in the late POTF and Phantom Menace days.

Get off the fence...it's worthy of your $30. I'm not usually a big fan of Hasbro vehicles, as I tend to think Legos more adequately cover that area, but this one is definately worth picking up. Your #34 pilot (or pilots) need a home.

Lynnhaven TRU - Not much of anything figure wise. Only the basics and none of the ones over #32. When I was walking in I saw a man with his son and they had an ARC-170 in there vile clutches.:D At least it was a kid and not a collector.

I also went to the First Colonial Target to get the Vader gift card but had no luck getting one. All of the Vader pegs were empty. If anyone can get there hands on one or more of these I'd really like to get one. Thanks.:D

EDIT: If anyone was able to pick up 2 Yoda's if you could hook a brother up I'd greatly appreciate it. I thought that I had ordered one on TRU.com but apparently I didn't. I'd obviously pay all shipping charges and taxes. Thanks.:D

Kohl's in Frederick has three each of Grievous #36 and Palpatine #35 w/ RED saber. Everything else there is stuff we've already found. Some reports from other Kohl's stores indicate that 33-40 should have been there, so either some one hit before me, or this Kohl's just didn't get the same stuff in. I even had someone check the back, but no luck.

Frederick TRU, K-Mart, and Target as of about 5pm don't have anything new. I wish I could just find one more blue Senate Guard and a Clone Commander...then I feel like I'll be able to relax a bit until the SA Clonetrooper hits.

Took a quick tour of the area:

Potomac Mills W-M: nothing above #32

Potomac Mills Target: same

Potomac Mills TRU: nothing above #32 but did have about 15 Holo Yodas out on the floor. Picked up an extra one.

Burke W-M: nothing above #32

Burke Target: same

Manassas (East) W-M: same

Patiently waiting for newer figs to be put out, but with most of the stores in my area with pegs that are overloaded with 1-32, it might be awhile.

mm...I'm telling you, my wife(and mother of our child) is still tickled pink(and still gloating) she found 8(count 'em) basic figures I needed...with 3 clone troopers in the mix. I'll give her her 5 minutes of fame on our boards..even though it was my hunch that led her to WalMart last Friday. Great finds by the way. I hope that clone commander becomes the new figure standard for Hasbro. Just F.Y.I., but I really was looking forward to those ROTS VS. Battle Arena sets. I only saw 2 at MM at Toys R Us...and never saw them at any other retailer, or restocked at Toys R Us, since. It turns out KayBee has them all, including the rare, elusive(or just not released wide, yet) Obi VS. magnaguard. I really think they're cool, and the closest thing to the old cinema scenes.

No knew figures to report, but I did get the Red light up spoon in a box of Sugar smacks (or whatever they call them now.) My wife laughed at me for trying to eat ice cream with it (it's not the sturdiest flatware in the world,) but it was worth the $2 I paid for the cereal.

I used it to eat mashed potatoes. It works good. Even holding the button down, to bad it wouldnt melt the ice cream.

Radford WM: nothing new, but they shrank down one of the SW aisles and moved the stuff to the other, so stuff is moving.

CBurg WM: Nada, same stuff.

CBurg Kmart: Nothing at all sans a vehicle and older stuff. SOld out of basic figs.

Anybody see Sin City?

My wife and I checked it out right before Midnite Madness. We both thought it was great. After Once Upon a Time in Mexico, I was a little worried Robert Rodriguez was going to drop the ball on this, but it turned out about as perfect as a film adaptation of the source material could. Jackie Boy "talking" to Dwight in the car was priceless. I know it's a long shot, but I'd love to see Rodriguez make The Dark Knight Returns in the same style. In fact, any "comic movie" would be interesting to see done in that style: just literally use the comic as a story board, and shoot the action accordingly. It really works...that's why Rodriguez pushed for Frank Miller to get billed as co-director.

And yes, Jessica Alba is a naughty thing, but not nearly as naughty as Nancy from the comic. From what I've read, a lotta the Sin City fanboys were upset about that. As if the movie didn't already have enough naughty bits showing. :rolleyes:

Nothing new to report otherwise. Still looking for a blue guard...in vain it seems.

I think once the movie comes out, more stuff will move out. The coolest thing I've seen so far in stores are KIDS getting pumped about the toys. I was actually in TRU yesterday & some kid & his grandma were looking at the Vader bank. And the kid broke out in verse saying "YOU ARE PART OF THE REBEL ALLIANCE AND A TRAITOR....TAKE HER AWAY!!!" He was like 6 or 7. That cracked me up! :crazed:

The coolest thing I've seen so far in stores are KIDS getting pumped about the toys.

Every time a make a toy run, I see the same thing...way more so than the last two movies. The kiddies are all kindsa hopped up on Star Wars these days. I wonder if the Clone Wars cartoons have anything to do with it.

Frederick Target has 7 or 8 AT-RTs and 2 ARC-170 fighters, new additions since 4/2. No new figs though...but I did manage to score an Alternators Shockblast (Shockwave). Makes me wish I had an RX-8.

BTW, mm74md, thanx for the score on Saturday. The Clone Commander rocks and my other blue guard is happy to have a twin. And again, my wife thanks you for ending what she was starting to call a horrible exercise in futility every lunch break.

Anyone that's got a royal guard, red or blue...get a second one. I don't know why, but from a display standpoint, a pair of guards is infinitely cooler and more eye catching than just one. My lonely blue guard kinda got overlooked until he got his partner. Not sure if it's the texture of the soft goods, or just the loudness and uniformity of the color, but the few people who've wandered past my basement SW collection display recently have remarked how spiffy they are. In a sea of figures on the wall, the eye goes right to the guards every time. For me, they are easily the best figures of ROTS so far. Too bad they're a bit difficult to find.

Anyone listen to Elliot in the Morning? Flounder headed off to CIII this morning, and everyone was ripping him pretty hard. Of course the uber-dorky Star Wars fans called in his defense, giving Elliot and Tyler even more ammunition. Very funny stuff though. Elliot does a great Yoda impression.

Oh, (and this is a tad low brow, so I apologize if it's offensive to anyone) Elliot and Tyler were referring to a certain bathroom activity as "dropping a Dooku". I don't know about you guys, but from now on around my house, if anyone heads to the bathroom with a newspaper under their arm, it's officially called "dropping a Dooku". My wife and I agree on this 100%, so it's sanctioned house law.

Yeah, I'm hoping for sometime in the next couple of weeks. There was nothing new in Frederick today. I hit TRU, Target, and Kohls and struck out everywhere. There is some some shelf space open at Target though, so they may restock tomorrow (this won't help me though, I'll be lucky to get out of the lab by 6:30.)

I broke down and bought a C3 Vader on E-bay today (I just hope the guy actually gets to buy it for me.) I told myself that it's cheaper than going to Indy (which is true) and that as long as I get the figure I don't mind subsidizing another fans trip to the convention. I hate exclusives, but I have to have them.

I must admit, I really respect Sean Mcfripp for turning down the card for the Lava Vader at Target on April 2nd. I couldn't have done it. Even though it was a crappy figure I had to have it.

I've gone all respectable, like Lando. Yep, me an Lando are pretty much one in the same...only Lando's really cool and I suck pretty bad. I don't think Lando would have been in line with us on Saturday.

Before anyone starts forming a decent opinion about me, let me say this: Just watch how many crippled cancer patients in wheelchairs and old ladies I stomp on to get the Target Clone Trooper. :eek: You'll respect me even more.

I'm an opener, so exclusive packaging doesn't really mean a whole lot to me, other than it looks cool in my trash can for a few days. But serve me up a decent exclusive figure (like the upcoming Target clone), and I geek out just like everybody else. :crazed:

The thing about the Target clone is it is #41 with a red paint splotch on the chest. Red paint and facy packaging can not justify an 8 dollar increase to me. I will pass on this one.

I agree completely...BUT, the fact that I have a Lego Clone Trooper (the one that came with the Scout Walker) with red splotches but I don't have one for 3 3/4 inch line will irk me to no end. Therefore, must have SA Clone Trooper with fancy red paint splotches...must idiotically fork over $12 to Target...must stomp on helpless infants and grandmothers to be first to get one. The army builder in me is weak.

On that note, I'm really glad I came in to catch up on some work today. On my lunch break, I found:

TRU: 4 VOTC Stormtroopers. I love it when TRU does housecleaning. Again, the army builder in me is weak, so I bought them all. There are a few Chewies and Bobas if anyone still hasn't picked them up.

K-Mart: ROTS 37-40. I only picked up the AT-TE gunner and the Chopper Droid, as I'd already picked up the others at Kohl's. I took the last gunner, so there are a few Mas Ameddas, Polis Massans, and Chopper Droids left.

By the way, for anyone that hasn't gotten the AT-TE gunner yet: I was really looking forward to this figure, but don't be fooled by the pics - it's got quite a few wonky little bits that kinda disappoint me. While it would have made sense logistically just to use the SA Clone body and slap the new head on it, Hasbro actually created a new figure pretty much from the ground up, with a few parts borrowed from the SA trooper. But IMO, no improvements were made, and in fact the changes hurt the figure. There is no waist articulation, and the torso is sculpted with the horrible "arched back" position that Hasbro loves to use for clones for some reason. While pictures seem to suggest otherwise, the shoulders and elbows are NOT universal joints, but instead cut joints. The right shoulder is at a particularly weird angle, and only looks good while posing with the gun. The hips should have been an improvement, as they are universal joints now, as opposed to the cut joints on the SA body, but the legs end up being a little unstable and the hips are quite far apart (ala quick-draw Clone Trooper, which I think is an awful figure). He does fit on a speeder bike a little better than the SA Clone though, which is a bit of a bonus. It's not a terrible figure, I just wanted to warn people like me who after reviewing the initial pictures a few months ago were left with the impression that the AT-TE gunner had the full range of SA motion...'cuz he don't. And he looks like he has hemroids, both in posture and in his expression. :eek:

I know it's only 5 splotches of red paint that make this figure unique, but I'm just a sucker for this kind of stuff. I have the two troopers standing next to my Lego Scout Walker on my desk as I type this, and I must say, they look pretty darned spiffy.

jon, the target has not put them out yet, but talk to the electronics guy and give him this DCPI# 087061489 and he will go in the back and pull one from the case, the figure is active, but they wont put them out until the star wars reset

Score!

WM on Battlefield Blvd in Chesapeake. Picked up the only 2 Clone Pilots (need one more...) and 2 Clone Commanders. They had 3 or 4 more Commanders and a few Grievous #36.

Right next to it is the only Kohl's I know of in this area. Checked it out to find nothing. If you are in the market for Clones they had at least 20 on the pegs.

Now I'm broke again...didn't think this stuff was coming out so soon?!! Williams got 2 standing ovations...went back to the podium & conducted Imperial March(Darth Vader's Theme). YEEEESSS!!!!

Guess most of the Targets in the area put out the Deluxe figs. Found all 4 today at Potomac Mills. Was planning on sticking with just the basic figs this time around (getting married later this year, so I can't go "wild" like the previous movies), but when I saw the Vader I had to get it. Was tempted by the Clonetrooper.

Pot. Mills WalMart - nothing new

Towson Target had a lot of Clone Pilots and Commanders as well as a few blue saber Palpatines but the only seemed to have 1 each of the rest. Target on York Rd. had 1 Polis, Mas Ameda and Medical Droid. The Target in Bel Air right near the Wal-mart had a lot of Clone Commanders, Pilots and Exlpoding Grevious.

Great finds mm74md

Decided to take a little "field trip" around the area:

Potomac Mills WalMart - went there early this morning and found about 5 cases of figs to be put out. Couldn't wait around so I decided to go back during my lunch break and they were out on the pegs. Bunch of #33-40, except for the AT-TE Gunner. All Palps were red saber.

Pot.Mills Target - looks like they put out only 1 case of 33-40. Again no AT-TE Gunner. (Forgot to mention - yesterday found 1 exlcusive CT hidden behind some diecast stuff. Made for a nice birthday gift to myself)

P.M. TRU - nothing above #32.

Dumfries W-M: a bunch of 33-40 (again, no AT-TE Gunners & all Palps were red saber). Did find some of the Battle Arenas. First time I've seen them outside of TRU or KB.

Burke W-M: selection is pretty slim but it looks like they did put out a couple of newer cases (33-40). Found 2 of the AT-TE Gunners. All Palps were red saber.

Burke Target: pretty slim selection.

Kinda suprised at the lack of seeing many of the AT-TE Gunners.

Found a Darth Tater at a Columbia Giant Foods...Jeers to them for not having "in-store details" on getting the free M&M's plush...checked with no less than 7 different stores. Finally yesterday a "catalina coupon" printed out with purchase receipt. This is been one botched-up ad circular for them. Most Giants didn't even get the product in that was advertised. The south Glen Burnie WalMart on Crain Hwy. actually had Early Bird kits on the bottom shelf. Sparky & anyone else local...let's all keep an eye out for #41-44! I feel they'll be hitting any day now!

Frederick Target had 41-44 and a few of the Battle Arena sets. The toy dept guy Stacey (who happens to be a SW fan) said he had just gotten in another case of the exclusive SA Clone Trooper, but someone bought the whole thing last night. I described who I thought it may have been, and he confirmed my suspicion.

On that note, I'd like to rant a bit about this paricular scapler from the Frederick area. You Frederick guys have all seen him I'm sure. He's this weasal-ly little rat f, Richard Dreyfus lookin' worm ridden piece of filth that hits all the toy depts of every store in Frederick. For anyone who was at Target on 4/2, you probably saw him there. Again, he looks just like Richard Dreyfus, he's loud and obnoxious, and he was hanging out with a tall fat dude in his 50's. Anyway, I've witnessed this guy scalping since I was old enough to drive and really get heavy into collecting. I'd see him hit up TRU for the original 1995 POTF monkey-faced Leias, only to see him a week later selling it for $25 a pop from a set-up in the middle of the FSK mall during one of those NASCAR/card collecting/general collectible rip-off bazaars. During TPM, he had a few Darth Mauls going for $20 a piece (before Maul flooded the market). I took great pride in telling one of his potential customers to go to CVS a few stores down, where they had Maul for $6.99. His expression was priceless. I've also caught him returning stuff at TRU quite often, and it's always something "collectible", like McFarlane sports figures, or Starting Lineup, or HotWheels. I guess he buys something that's "hot" and then returns it if the price cools off and he can't sell it.

So, my point in this rant...well, I have no point. I just really hate this guy. If you ever see him, tell him you know he's a scalper and that you really dislike him. Tell him he sucked in JAWS and that he would have made a terrible C-3PO.

However, if you are looking, don't go to the Target at Greenbriar. Basically had NO figures (which I actually se as being a good sign). Truthfully there were maybe 20 figures - one or two on each peg. They are renovating so maybe that has something to do with it.

That's great to read. It is very refreshing to hear about some positive experiences out on the road.

However...

This Target exclusive clone has got to be one of the low points in collecting with regards to scum scalpers. Read a front page article @ GH where some dude walked off with 6 cases. Granted, I'd like to think that he was a committed army builder. But my guess is that some ebay seller in CA is going to list 72 exclusive clones with a buy-it-now of $25 each. That story gets lumped in with multiple reports of entire cases walking out of stores.

For me the Lava Vader and exclusive Clone will live together forever in the don't have pile.

Enough rant for now...

There is very little to report in SE - VA (Hampton Roads). I have seen eveidence of 40+ at Target, and have started to see a couple 36-40 sitting around at WM.

I'm caught up through #44 with the exception of #41 (thanks for the tip MM74MD, I sent my Mom out to Wal-Mart in Hagerstown to look for me.) Frederick Target sold through another set of exclusive clones yesterday. A friend of mine picked up the last one. If anyone finds these and could pick one up for a fellow collector I'd be most appreciative. I got the TRU-exclusive Jedi starfighter yesterday in Frederick. Other than that, there's not much new around here.

On a side note: MM74MD, if you tried to call saturday morning through early afternoon and I didn't pick up then I apologize. One of our cats knocked a phone off the hook and I didn't find it till 2:00 so nothing rang through.

Question - Has anyone had much luck with the Burger King promo? MOst of the stores in my area were sold out - one had a price tag of $4.99 per toy on their board. Did eventually find Jabba, Han and Wicket. Not too optomistic about finding much else from the first wave...

Not a whole lot happening. Did seem like most stores put out more cases yesterday to coincide with the release of the movie.

Pot. Mills W-M: (actually meant to post this yesterday, but was dead tired from catching the midnight showing, then getting up for work at 6am, I crashed as soon as I got home yesterday) had all of the newer figs (41-44) along with approx 5 or 6 AT-TE Gunners if anyone is still looking.

Pot. Mills Target: stopped by there today during lunch, they had 3 exclusive SA clones, but that was about it.

Dale City K-Mart: no real suprise, pegs half full of 1-28.

Manassas K-Mart: pegs jammed with 1-28.

All in all I loved the movie. I think I was still a little "shell-shocked" when I left the theater. It's alot to take in. Not going to give anything away incase some of us haven't seen the movie yet, but there are some pretty emotional/powerful scenes. Anyone else's thoughts/opinions?

Jobare; I posted my review in the other forum...but "shell-shocked" was the exact description my wife & I used. I think it is a masterpiece compared to the other 2 prequels. It IS a very emotional journey, and Ewan's dialogue brought us to tears several times. I feel like alot of neat stuff must have got cut out, but that's what the DVD's are for. I'm having strong reservations about taking my 8 year old son; even though he loves SW...I think it's just a little too intense in that last 45 minutes.

Grabbed a Vader table, Clone deluxe and Vulture droid today at Radford WM. At Target in CBurg, had a 10 dollar gift card, so I grabbed the AT-RT Lego and a diet pepsi.

So far 2 viewings of ROTS. Excellent movie. If not a little overwhelming.

Target on Military had tons of variant wookiees. Lits of delux wave 2 and higher #'s.

Nothing much to report on the other area stores. Did hit a Suncoast out of curiosity. They had a lot of the 12" and everything was 25% off. That made it about the same as the other major retailers.

Also hit a KB out of the same curiosity. What gives. Everything is more expensive, and there's not much selection. Very strange.

I haven't seen one since the weekend of Midnight Maddness. Walmart.com and amazon.com had them last week though.

Sparky - the only place that I remember seeing them (recently) were at 2 different KB's.

Potomac Mills W-M: nothing new.

Potomac Mills Target: nothing new. They did have the 5 pk. protective cases. Thought these were recalled.

Pot. Mills TRU: pegs jammed with everything below 32.

Dale City KMart: I think I saw a tumbleweed roll past me.

On a side note, everywhere I went I've noticed that I didn't see a single Vader. Doesn't really suprise me with the release of the movie. While in Target today there was a woman there talking to one of the toy dept employees asking about the figures, saying that she wanted to get her son a "good guy and a bad guy". She picked up a Yoda, but couldn't find a Vader. She looked at the Palpatines and Grievous' and was set on getting that Vader. Well, the employee went to the stockroom and came back with a Vader, much to her delight, and said, "you just made my son's day." I'm just glad that people are showing a real interest in this movie and getting their kids involved.

Another sidenote question like Sparky's. Has anyone seen the Mustafar playset? I thought I heard it had been released...but haven't seen it anywhere! I did pick up the Pellennor Fields LOTR set from Toy Biz at North Glen Burnie WalMart...very nice & 3 new figures.

Found #45, 46 & 47(still several of each left) at North Glen Burnie WalMart/Chesapeake Ctr. Hasbro needs to slow things up a bit or I'm going to have to sell my son into servitude somewhere. I've been lucky the last 48 hrs. but I'm terrified now that the Evolutions sets & Vader 500th are hitting any day now. I'm broker than broke...I just picked up all the books last week(tried to stay spoiler free), after I saw the movie!

Nice finds.............AGAIN. ;)

Was wondering when these were gonna show up. Jon, I'm with you. I'm also broke and it seems that there is a new wave released, on average, every 2 weeks. Thankfully this has coincided with my paychecks. Hopefully Hasbro will give us a little breathing room before 48-50, 500th Vader & the Evolution sets come out.

Tarkin wave hitting Va Beach area, friend of mine picked them up at PA WalMart this past Thursday. Also deluxe wave should be hitting soon, I found all 4 on my way home from Baltimore this week. Found them in Tappahanook, VA just between interstates 95 and 64, off the 295 exchange.

I noticed more #45-47 at that same WalMart, but they were thrown in a shopping cart that was across from the SW "wall." They also had #41 SA clonetrooper out the ying yang in the same cart. I picked up Anakin's starfighter for $18 to open...nice paint scheme & weathering/blast mark details. What's with the green paint job on the Toys R Us exclusive with Anakin #2? This seems to be the new pegwarmer @29.99. I'm heading down to Annapolis, hopefully, this weekend to see ROTS at the digital screening at Crown Theater in the mall.

The green fighter is the one Anakin flew to Mustafar to "take care" of the Seperatists.

Found the new deluxe this weekend (minus the Clone pack, natch). Still waiting to see 45+...

I found wave 3 of the deluxe at Target on Friday minus the clone 3 pack. The crab droid was a huge disappointment when I opened it. It was the wrong scale (I thought it should be much smaller given what I'd seen in hte movie) and it looked nothing like the picture on the package. Oh well, I guess Lucas changed his mind after Hasbro had the toy designed. SA clones are all over the place here too. Are they shipping full cases of them?

The Target at Springfield had Deluxe wave three around 10.30 today. The KB there has Mustafar for 29.99. Nothing new at Kohls, WM or TRU. Nothing new at the Fair Lakes TRU, WM or Target, where I might have missed 45-47 by 2 minutes. I thought I saw someone with them in hand.

KH, what is in the wave 2 of Galatic Heroes?

Hagerstown Wal Mart has the Code 3 Millennium Falcon for $249. I put one on layaway. They also marked down the Early Bird sets to $10 & the Diecast to $3. It seems they are making room for Fantastic Four and Batman.

Target on First Colonial had alot of the 40 and above figs (with the exception of the AT-TE Gunner). I picked up the Neimodian Warrior and 3 #41's.

I have 2 extras of the #41. Send me a PM if any of you need one. I'd prefer someone that doesn't have one yet over an army builder but since I don't know who has 'em it's gonna be honesty.

Found the same at both Targets I visited this weekend. Tons of higher # figures. Even an ATTE amongst them.

Question - where are the deluxe wave 2 & 3??

Slicker

Sorry about that. They had tons of the Deluxe figs including: Stass Allie on Speeder, Crab Droid, Spider Droid, a Clone 3-Pack, and the Vulture Droid.

PM me if you want any of those and I can go and check it out.

Thanks for the offer. However, the SW budget is very thin right now. It's almost for the best that I have not spotted the Deluxe - would hate trying to explain $30+ to the mrs.

Amazing how these figs keep moving off the pegs...

Diecast are $2.50 each. Finally got that series.

Doesn't look like a whole lot is going on in the area.

Potomac Mills W-M: Finally restocked. Too bad it was nothing above #44. On a good note, they had quite a few Royal Guards. Must have counted at least 5 reds & 8 blues. Picked up a red.

Pot Mills Target: nothing new. I did find an Anakin w/ the pink lightsaber variation (?) but the hook on the card was torn.

Pot Mills TRU: finally restocked, but it doesn't look like anything above #36. Saw my first Vaders in quite a while. He sure seems to be popular lately.

Dale City KMart: nothing.

Still looking for 45-47, but no big hurry. It does look like I've missed my chance at finding the blue saber Palpatine.

Went hunting today, didnt find anything over 44. AT Cburg Target, they went in the back to look and while the lady was in the back, a scalper came in and waited for her to bring the stuff out. SHe bought one case of 41-44 and I took em and we walked off peeved. Left 42-44 and took the clone. ALso bought another 41 tonight in Radford WM, they had plenty of 42-44 there when I left. STill no signs of Tarkin or Wave 3 deluxes here yet. Princeton WM had nothing either

Whats up somewhat locals?

I went to the Patrick Henry Mall in Newport News today and they had some Sneak Preview Wookies there. Not sure if you have those or not, but today was the first time I had ever seen them so I picked up a couple, since they were 2 for $12 at KB Toys. I have never seen any of the Sneak Previews so I thought I'd chime in. There are still a few SP Wookies left too. Other than that the pegs at the Wal-Mart, Target and TRU was riddled with the peg warmers, Palpatine red, etc...:o

Take care fellas!

Good to have another collector searching the area. I live in Va Beach and my main stores that I go to are: Lynnhaven TRU and WM, First Colonial Target, and Nimmo Rd. WM.

Welcome aboard.
