South Glen Burnie, Arundel Mills & Columbia WalMarts all had Ep. III DVD Commem. sets, but no clonetroopers...just Jedi & Sith. Has anyone found the trooper 3-pack, or heard of anyone who has. It seemed to be that it was not in the assortment, was only 1 per case, or just got eaten up by scalpers & collectors that fast. North Glen Burnie WalMart had Bly, Gree wave back in, with all available this AM...except Bly & Gree, of course.

Were the WM DVD sets with the other figures or in the video section? just wondering where to look.

2 WalMarts had them on that mostly Halloween-themed SW aisle fixture with the roleplay helmets, lightsabers, capes, etc(these seem to have Cinderalla/Princess costumes on one side for the girls, Star Wars on the other for the boys). The third WalMart just had them on the shelf where the Evolutions sets were. I also saw the exclusive WalMart Star Wars Pez collection sets(14.99 I think) on the endcaps of several of these aisle seasonal fixtures. Hope that helps Major Karr, and good luck!! I was not expecting these till 11/1, since the last coupla times they have been included with the pallet dump setups for the DVD's(Clone Wars cartoon, etc.) I stopped into Borders for a quick look see, and ended up spending $99 on a MR Anakin FX lightsaber. I must admit this is the first Master Replicas item I've ever purchased, and I couldn't have been happier playing with this thing(and fighting my son off). It's mounted on my rec room wall, already. They also had the Vader & Luke editions. This was at Columbia Borders.

Holy chipped beef on toast!!!I just scored the "final five", not at Target, but at the north Glen Burnie WalMart(same store that just got cleaned out of the Bly, Gree wave yesterday). Looks like the scalpers didn't get up today! Maybe 2 cases put out...I have 501st Tactical Ops Troopers stashed for anyone local who wants one...Valin, Sparky, blank, Sean, mtriv, etc...PM me for location. It's about 8:30 am now.

Sorry, been a bit busy lately guys.

I have had no luck at all finding these exclusives. I have probably checked Target 3-4 times since last Sunday and still nothing. Went today, nothing. I give up... I'll definitely take your extra set Slick :thumbsup:. Going to send a PM.

Hey rcjedi, what's up? Good job on finding that big Ben figure. I figured that one would be pretty difficult to find. Of course I have still yet to lay eyes on any of them. I think I'm going to settle on getting the figures I want on the internet.

And to Slick, Congratulations to the Detroit Lions. After a disappointing loss last week, they bounced back today and beat the Browns. I picked up Detroits Defense/ST in one of my fantasy leagues and they filled in nicely for my other D/ST that was on a bye week. Their defense did an amazing job.

I still have two 501st Tactical Ops Troopers stashed at the north Glen Burnie WalMart location. I haven't heard back from all my local fellow forumites...let me know if you're interested. I'm all caught up except for the DVD commem. 3-pack of tan clonetroopers...which was gone at every WalMart I checked.

:eek: That's HORRIBLE!

I have had problems with them ringing up at the register as well. When I found the #64(#68) Wookie, 501st Clone and R4-P17 the only one that would ring up was the R4?!?! Anyway, the lady at the register just rang up the R4 3X and called it good.

Seriously, if I were you, I would have complained to the manager!:mad:

Scored all 3 of the DVD Comm. sets.

Stopped off at Pot. Mills W-M after work and found 2 boxes of them on a pallet in the toy dept. One of the boxes was already opened with the Clones laying on top of the box (only reason I even noticed these).

Found the final 5 this morning at WM on 26 in Frederick. Thanks to Jonthejedi I'll have 2 501st troopers. :thumbsup: It looks like they had only put out 1 case and I got the last holographic figures. There were still a few R4's left and a wookie or two. They had also out out a case yesterday as evidenced by the presence of a wookie heavy gunner last night amongst the nemoidian warriors.

No sign of the DVD sets yet around here and the WM toy manager didn't have a clue what I was talking about.

Thanks again for the figures Slick... You'll never believe what I found at Target today. Those darn exclusives.lol I picked up another set, you know how I like to collect 2 of everything. Thanks again though, I really do appreciate it. Let me know if there is anything you are looking for, I can keep an eye out for you.

They also had some new figures that I have never found. They had Bly, Gree, Bodyguard, Argente and Miin, #57,59,60,61,62 respectively. Though I was really really disappointed in the condition. I've never seen figures so damaged hanging on the shelves before so I passed on all of them.:( I mean, these things looked like they had been stepped on, real batterd and tatterd. I'm not one to pass on figures if I don't already have them and I don't care if one of the corners is bent or a J hook, but these things were in horrible condition. Like I said, I have never seen figures in that condition hanging on the pegs. Hopefully I'll see them again. :rolleyes:

Whats new with you guys?

Whats new with you guys?I haven't been out since I picked up the Lava figs for you. It's a combination of things the main one being I'm pretty much caught up. I've been reading that the 3 packs are showing up in VA so I may go on a run tomorrow. I'll def. let you know what, if anything, I find.

Pot. Mills TRU put out the Holo Emperor today. They weren't with the other figures, but had them hanging on a plastic strip on one of those wire bins about 15' away from the SW section. Kinda hard to notice as I must have walked by them twice before I even noticed. Hope this helps. They had 4 or 5 left as of 12:30 today.

I'm getting ready to go on a little run myself. I will probably just hit up Target and WM and I "may" go down to NewPort News. I guess it all depends on how much luck I have here and town and if I feel like making the trip. If I do make the trip down there, I'll let you know if I find anything. I guess I'll let you know if I find anything here in town too.

So do you have figures #57 and up Slick? If you do you didn't tell us. Anyways, good luck! :D

Well I just got back from shopping/hunting. I didn't have any luck here in town. I did make the trip down to NN and I went to the TRU there and picked up the exclusive Holographic Emperor. If you don't already have that one, the TRU near Patrick Henry Mall had about 5 left. The Target there didn't have anything. They did have some of their Obi/Anakin Exclusives though.

I also got to look at my first NFL McFarlane Sportspicks figure(s) at TRU but they didn't really have anything. It was still nice to see them though! lol

I finally found a ROTS gunship yesterday at TRU in Frederick. I couldn't believe it when I saw it (since I haven't seen more than 1 since april.) I'm counting the minutes until the DVD is released tomorrow. I'm almost ashamed to admit this, but I've only seen ROTS once and that was back in May.

Where are you guys going to go to pick up your copy? Wal-mart for the exclusive disk, Target for the coin, or somewhere else? I think I'll go for the bonus DVD in the Wal-Mart version.

I'm going the WalMart route, also, since I love the different DVD. I got the bonus DVD with the lightsaber a ways back, and my son beat it into the ground...he loves the Hasbro commercials; I believe this is the same bonus DVD with the new Ultimate build-your-own lightsabers...can anyone confirm this?). I think Tyler will enjoy R2 & C3PO regaling him with the saga. I believe Borders & Best Buy will have the Master Replicas FX sabers on sale. I rec. these to anyone who hasn't bought or even tried one. I fired the Anakin one up in pitch darkness, and my wife swore it looked "like the real thing!" Not crazy about the Target coin, I'll check out the "Best of" CD. I think the lithograph stinks that Best Buy showed in their flyer.

Yes they did, but...

They actually had 2. When I first got in there sunday morning there was this guy on his cell phone talking to his wife about what SW toys their kid did or did not have. Apparently, his birthday was coming up and he had and ARC-170, he had all the jedi starfighters, etc. I had just gotten down one of the 2 Gunships they had on a top shelf (they were well hidden in the back I might add, it pays to be over 6 feet tall because if I was any shorter I never would have spotted them,) and I handed it to him saying I bet his kid didn't have one of these. He thanks me and then asks his wife about it. She apparently then asked her kid who became so excited that I could here him through the phone 3 feet away. Needless to say, I had to get the other one down for myself, but some little kid somewhere is going to be really happy when he opens that one.

They should be getting in more as Christmas season rolls around. I'll check again the next time I'm out there (probably today.) If they have one I'll pick it up and PM you.

mtriv73
11-01-2005, 12:57 PM
I just checked and they don't have any more. I'll keep looking though...

I know someone around here is still looking for the new Tarkin figure. I was just at the K-mart here in Frederick and they had everyone from that wave except Tarkin. I know that doesn't help much, but you might want to check K-marts in your area to see if they're getting the same wave.

That was, and still is, me. I took a trip to Dale City K-mart after work, but they still had the same figures that they've had for 2+ months. Thanks for the heads-up though and I'll have to hit that store a little more often. I appreciate it.

Went to Pot. Mills W-M this around 1:30am yesterday to get ROTS and took a stroll thru the toy dept & found 4-5 cases of figures sitting on pallets. Every one of the cases were opened, but no figures were missing. All cases were coll.1.

My 3 packs from Wal-mart came today also. Somebody screwed up and sent me an extra Jedi 3-pack. I'm certainly not going to complain about it, but I certainly am going to open it (or take it back and exchange it for another clone trooper one.)

You always seem to be a day ahead of me. I found them at the WM on 26 in Frederick today. They had 2 when I got there and 1 when I left. The best part is, it rang up for $17 and change.

Just got back from Target and still no Shadow Trooper or whatever the hell there exclusive is. Although they did have at least 30 total Lava figs. No lie.

I did walk away with something though. To my surprise I found a lone Red Royal Guard just chillin' on the shelf. I still need him so to find him this late in the game was quite awesome. I'm pretty sure he's shipping in one of these later cases though.

I didn't have any luck either when I went to Target today. The Target here never puts out this stuff on time and it's rather annoying. Maybe the Shadow Trooper will show up within the next couple of days. They did have many Lava Exclusives still, not 30, but enough. Anyways, good to hear you found that Red clone!

I did pick up the War of the Worlds(original version) for $4.99 so it wasn't a complete waste of a trip.

Have you found all of the new fig's yet? If I remember correctly, you were missing a couple?

I found an R4-P17 with the corrected number at Wal-mart in Frederick this weekend. A friend was there yesterday and said they had 2 clone evolutions sets, but the commander had been replaced with the Red clone commander. If they're still there this evening on my way home I'm going to point it out to the customer service desk. Hopefully they have a record of what A-hole returned these and they can get him for fraud.

Edit: They were still there when I got there and the customer service rep was pleased to have it pointed out to them. They said they would try to be on the lookout for things like this in the future. I just can't believe somebody went to all that trouble for a stupid action figure.

Just rolled by the First Colonial Target and picked up the grey variation Clone Evo pack and the Sith Evo pack. They also had 2 of the new TIE Fighters but both had some damage so I had to unfortunately pass. Still no Shadow Troopers though.

They still had about 4 grey Clone Evo pack and 2 of the first release yellow ones.

Still no Shadow Troopers here either. I'm going to try my luck again tomorrow, Wed, and hope that they have put some out. I'm not even going to bother stepping foot in Target on Friday. If they don't have them tomorrow, I'll check again on Sunday.

Today I went to the First Colonial Target and they finally had the damn Shadow Trooper. They only had 3 of them in so I got my 1.

After what seemed like forever, I finally scored a Tarkin. Decided to stop by Potomac Mills TRU today during lunch and found a bunch of the "Value" 2-packs. Tarkin & Bail was the first one I saw and I thought I was gonna pass out. They actually had 3 of them on the pegs.

elsewhere:

Pot. Mills W-M: a decent amount of figures, too bad 75% of them are Vader. No "Twins" yet.

Pot. Mills Target: wiped out. Nothing new at all.

Manassas TRU: had 2 of the "Value Packs" that included Tarkin.

Manassas (east) W-M: wiped out. But it looked the same about 2 weeks ago.

Manassas Mall Target: pretty barren, but they did have 7 Tie Fighters.

Dumfries W-M: actually went there yesterday. Bunch of figs but nothing really new. No "Twins", but they did have the new "mini" Unleashed figure sets. Pretty neat looking, but not a fair replacement for the 7" figs.

I was pretty pumped when I started working across from the Target in Frederick thinking I'd score SOMETHING new. However, they have nothing but starcases! The Wal Mart off 85 really sucks! Ugh. At least I have Beyond Comics to visit there.

I checked this past Sunday and they didn't have any STs and I also checked today and they didn't have any. I am just hoping that the Target hasn't put them out yet, like I've said in the past, they are pretty bad about putting stuff out on time. I checked all the tags and none of them said anything about the ST, so I'm almost positive I didn't miss them. The Target still had a few Lava figs but not nearly as many as they did in the past. Maybe they are waiting for those to go or something.

Do you know if any of the Targets near you still have them? or are they all gone? Wouldn't surprise me if they were gone by now, since it has been a couple days since your post.

People who are walking through the mall and then all of a sudden they just decide to stop, right in the middle of the blasted walkway. Then you have to stop, walk around them... Argghh!

I didn't notice that the Lava figs were marked down, but they did have the star cases marked down to $6.??.

First Colonial Target - Even worse than the WM. They had 13 figures on the shelves (yes I counted) and every single one of them was a f**king Nemo Warrior.

WM in Leesburg had Lego '06 Slave-1 and tie interceptor. The Super Target there had next to nothing, but they did have 2 (empty) pegs with SW figs that were priced at $5.17. All the other (empty) pegs were priced $4.77. So, they may have had the '06 saga figures in at some point. The Target in Frederick has gotten rid of the pegs for SW basic figures and I haven't seen anything new at WM or TRU in weeks. The Wal-mart on 26 even sold all the Nemoidian warriors that have been clogging the pegs (though I'm sure they'll all get returned after christmas.)

This begs the question: where are all the figures? I think Hasbro sold through everything they made for the year weeks ago and didn't have time to make more. Maybe they'll fast track the saga figures and make a few more of them this time around. They could have done this intentionally, however, to help us out in the long term. They can point to the empty shelves and tell the major retailers that Star Wars is still really hot and they should bump up or maintain the same orders for next year (even though it's a non-movie year.) This may make things easier to find next year.

Frederick Target had 3 Shadow Troopers on an endcap today. I actually took one to the register then realized I could buy 4 gallons of milk for the price of this figure. Needless to say, I left it there. It is a cool figure, but I won't pay $13 for a figure anymore :(

You've helped me out Slick, and I appreciate it! :yes:

I was just shocked to see them on the pegs so I had to pick up a couple more, you know. They are awesome, but expensive, army builders. It is a pretty cool fig too.

I got an order from SWS the other day in the mail and a couple of the figures were damaged. The Holiday Vader and the Wedge (decided to order that one) arrived in pretty bad condition. The protective cases were damaged, which doesn't really bother me, but the actual bubbles/blisters on the cards were wrinkled and crushed too. I contacted their customer support, which was very helpful, and they agreed to cover the return shipping costs. I just wanted to have the items exchanged so we will see how that goes. I've never had to return/exchange an item with them before. Have you had to? If you did, how did it go? My only concern is that they won't send figures that are in nm/mt condition or they will pack them poorly. At least the Comic Con Leia arrived in excellent condition and unharmed. I know that one would have been a pain in the aace to exchange since they aren't readily available.


So you got any Christmas plans?

I'm going to NoVA to celebrate. I plan on getting wasted and watching some foosball!!!

I was lucky enough to score two saga '06 figures this am at Annapolis TRU(was working nearby at Home Depot). They weren't even in the SW section, but at the end of some "Island" fixture. There were two Bib F.(both with stormie hologram) & one Han Solo(w/rebel fleet trooper holo). I left 1 Bib. At almost $15 with tax for these two, I have to agree with you guys on the pricing issue. Happy holidays & happy hunting!

Great luck at my first stop this am. South Glen Burnie WalMart had two cases of Saga Carkoon wave. I was able to grab the four I was missing. 3 of each left, except Barada & Chewie(1 left of @).

My pleasure...they rang up, I believe, at 5.88...which puts them considerably cheaper than TRU's price. I think they'll be hitting at all three retailers any day now. I'll keep an eye out for Chewie & Barada. I'd have to check KH's list, but I seem to remember they're only 1 per box.

No prob.

I lucked out with finding the last 12. One day when I went to Target, a month or so ago, I found them all at once. Didn't have to hunt at all. Since then they have showed up everyone once in a while, but not too often. Like a week or so ago I picked up 3 or 4 more Ops Troopers but I wasn't really looking for anything else. I'm wondering that since they are now all cleaned out and with the new saga figs being released, if we will see much of the ROTS line at all? Either way, if I see one I will pick it up for you.

Well, I finally got the Saga figures. I made a disappointing toy run until the last stop produced these.

Lynnhaven WM - not even a single action figure.

Lynnhaven WM (Princess Anne) - not a single action figure although where the Star Wars figs are supposed to be they had the Napoleon Dynamite figures. I bought the one of Napoleon in his flippin sweet suit.

Lynnhaven TRU - I am officially done going here unless they have an exclusive. They had nothing but about 20 Mon Mothmas.

First Colonial Target - This is where I found my Saga figs. I only bought 5 of the 6 (the Han was pretty beat up) and I only found the Fett because I noticed that there were some Titaniums stashed behind some Transformers and there he was chillin'.

So now all that I need are Gree, Bly, HG, and Han Carbonite.

That would be awesome if you could. But like most of the ROTS stuff, I doubt we will see these again though.



Also, have you seen the new larger wing TIE Fighter around lately?

Not sure if I ever told you this, and you can call me crazy, but I don't really collect vehicles. This is mainly because they take up too much space (that I don't have) and are expensive (for the most part). So unfortunately, I don't pay close attention to them. But anyways, I haven't seen any ROTS vehicles in a while, like the figs. I think all the vehicles got snatched up around Christmas time too. However, I will keep an eye out for ya. But like I said, I haven't seen any ROTS stuff in weeks. :(

I have a feeling I'm going to have to eBay the Separation of the Twins figures. Hopefully I can get a deal on them. :rolleyes:

I went through all of the isles and clearance isles again looking for that Tie Fighter but I didn't see any. All they had on clearance, that was ROTS, was the Halloween costumes, lightsabers and Darth helmets. No vehicles or basic figures, which makes me wonder where the Anakin came from (he was with the Saga figs)?!?

I found the Snowtrooper today along with Han Carbonite (I now have all of the Carkoon wave). Here's the rundown of where I went and what I found.

Nimmo Rd. WM - Snowtrooper and an abundance of every one of the Carkoon wave. I also bought the new titaniums. I bought the Venerator, speeder bike, droid fighter, and Jango's Slave I.

First Colonial Target - Also had an abundance of the Carkoon wave with tons of Fetts

Lynnhaven WM - In the middle of a reset. No SW figs but I'm gonna check back in a couple of days when they're done.

Out of all of the Fetts I found today not a one had the flames packed in front.

Hit multiple Targets today after work from Laurel thru Columbia to Glen Burnie, and was able to score everyone in the Hoth wave except Vader & the power droid(which I kinda really wanted...since I have a soft spot for droids). It seems most only got 1 box per store and they were gone in less than an hour from what I heard. I wanted VEERS the most(obviously), and he is a standout figure. It would have been cool if Hasbro had pulled a Dagobah Luke, and also had him with his armor & helmet on as a variant! Checked out both Glen Burnie WalMarts, and they had nuthin' new as usual.

I'm still doin' good UK. I've got the whole Carkoon wave and the Snowtrooper from the Hoth wave but that's about it. I am in search of Titaniums though. For some reason I completely neglected to get wave 3 or 4 of them and now I want them. I've got most of wave 5 and I'll be searching for those but if you happend across any of the waves that I missed I'd be grateful if you could pick 'em up.

I also saw the Boba Fett chopper, x-wing trans., new Titaniums Death Star & Slave 1, plus the newest set that includes the "raw metal" Falcon at many of the WalMarts I hit.

I thnk the Fett Chopper is the worst of them all. How can they take a cool character and degrade him like that?

Rt. 40 Ellicott City WalMart had all Hoth in stock except Riekeen. New Titaniums Slave 1 & Death Star also there, as well as two chase vehicles.

Sure man. I went to Target and Walmart today and they had a few of the Titaniums. Just shoot me a list of the specific ones that you are looking for and I'll check and see if they have any of them.

Just shoot me a list of the specific ones that you are looking for and I'll check and see if they have any of them.I just got back from a mini run and finished up the latest wave of them but I still need the earlier waves (i.e. swamp speeder, naboo fighter, AT-RT, wookiee flyer, etc.)

Didn't find any new figs tonight just the 2 Titaniums I needed.

Any others? I am going to Target tomorrow and I'll be going to WM again on Friday. Let me know if there are any more I should look for. And is package condition important on these or do you want them regardless? I'll obvoiusly pick out the best one, but if they only have one and it is beat up did you still want me to grab it?

I do remember seeing the Land Speeder and Biker Scout today so they might have the wrong wave out?!?!?!? Either way, get back to me as soon as you can.

Got me some of my tax return so I went a toy shopping...

I got the Speeder Bike Titanium
A General Veers to open
Obi-Wan Unleashed on clearance for 9 bucks
Lego Wookie Catamaran for 25 bucks on clearance also
Rebel vs Empire Battle pack on clearance
A bunch of ROTS figs that I had on lay-a-way and other stuff.
A Ducard BAtman Begins figure(Ra's Ah Gual)

For my sons birth day tomorrow I got him the 3 DVD packs that I had on lay-a-way for him and also a GReivous Wheelbike that was on clearance for 12 bucks. All in all it was a good shopping day.

Also found a set of the Seperation of the Twins for UKWildcat. He was stoked.

I'll start off by saying the Choppers look like the biggest pieces of crap ever, especially Boba Fett. I was at the C-Burg Kmart today and looking at them...but I did notice the Boba Fett was facing to the Left in the packaging. When I went to the C-Burg Walmart 15 minutes later, same crappy Boba Fett Chopper, but facing to the Right. I checked Ebay, and they have pics of both versions. While I'm not too worried about this, I thought you all may want the keep an eye out if your are interested. Toodles.

I've got 5 of the 8 hoth wave now. I still haven't seen a power droid, r2, or a darth vader. Veers may be the best figure they've ever released. I hope they keep shipping the AT-AT drivers in other waves. I'll need at least 2 more to drive the endor AT-AT coming out this year.

They had a Vader yesterday at the WM near the mall. I'm swinging by there on my lunch/dinner break around 2. Would you like me to pick it up for you?

Target in Frederick has a ton of Carkoon wave

Sorry Slick. WM didn't have any of the Titaniums you needed either.Hey, don't worry about UK. Not biggie. I appreciate it though and obviously if you need anything just let me know.

Any new finds lately? I myself I haven't found anything in the last couple of days. I absolutely hate Hampton Roads. Grrrrr!!!!

Nope, nothing new to report here.

When I went to WM yesterday they didn't have any of the Saga figs. What's even stranger is that they didn't even have the pegs for them anymore. The SW stuff was still there, but the pegs for the basic figs weren't. They were replaced with some stupid anime cards or something that was totally unrelated to anything in the section. Beats the crap out of me. Maybe they will have it straightened out next time I go there.

The only reason I am venturing into Target is to look for the cheap Star Cases that I still can not find. Oh well...

Unless you're the one who picked it up, it was gone friday afternoon, but I really appreciate the offer. (sorry, I didn't see your post until today.)

Went to Deep Creek this weekend and found the power-droid, another veers, and another At-at driver. Still lacking vader and R2. :upset:

My 10 5-packs of astromech droids should be shipping soon. There is still 1 set of all 10 available if anyone wants them (I think it's around $65 with shipping for the 10.)

C-Burg Walmart & Target: Nothing new.

KH, I found a ROTS Tarkin of all things on clearance for $3.00 at C-Burg Walmart. I'm in no need of it, so I left it for you or anyone else who may need it. Stashed it for you in case you needed it in the clearance aisle, bottom shelf, very back of the Star Wars Monopoly and Star Wars Risk board games.

Thanks, but I have 2 Tarkins, dont know how I got the second, dont recall buying it.

They put the Early Birds in the clearance aisle but they ring up at 29.97....WTF? Thats regular price and it has a huge sign saying clearance.
