UK, EBK's are nine bucks here, you atill need one? I can mail it with your info if need be.

I'm going to WM tomorrow to look for the Cor. wave, amongst other things. Hopefully I'll find that they have dropped their EBKs below $10. If I find that they are still priced at $15, that would be awesome if you could pick one up and mail it in for me. Save on shipping, etc. I'm assuming the envelope has to be postmarked before the end of the month? Is there anything worth keeping in that big plastic kit they sell?

I'll get back to you tomorrow and I'll obviously pay for any expenses. Thanks KH!

WM - 2 Scorches, revision pack outs too. No Coyr. waves anywhere in CB.

It's not me! If I hit early, it's usually at around 8:15 or so, and I've been coming up short every time. Maybe there's some new collector blood in the area. To quote Danny Glover from Pedator 2: "We got a new player in town." Perhaps that person is more deserving of death.

mtriv73, mm74MD, your lives will be spared...for now.:dev:


Well, Frederick Target had the Cody wave. Repeat, they HAD the Cody wave. Apparently there are 3 guys who come into the store everyday and hit Star Wars, Marvel Legends, and (you guessed it) Hot Wheels. I was so angry. I haven't been mad like that in a long time.

PLEASE DON'T BUY CODY ON EBAY. F THOSE LOSERS!

Utter waste of 2 hours searching today. 2 WM's had the remnants of the Geonosis wave (i.e. Scorch and Utapau Clone missing) and the other places had squat. I did pick up the wave 3 Titaniums though.

The guy that has been finding everything for me lately was going into work late and stopped by Target this morning. He said he got to target around 9:00 and everything was picked through already. The only figures they'll get for a week and they're gone in less than a hour! There's too many collectors and scalpers and not enough product around here. Sometimes I feel like we're just giving the scalpers a heads up on where to look by posting here. If Hasbro could keep product on the shelves for these stores then the scalpers wouldn't make money and we could all get back to our nice relaxing hobby. Supply and demand Hasbro, you're not even coming close to meeting the demand and you haven't for a while. I can see waves instantly selling out for a few weeks after they're released, but having pegs sit empty for 95% of the time is inexcusable.

It was me! I got there at 8:00 (skipped morning meeting at work), something I haven't done in about six months, and I was the only one there. I go back to the SW section, and BAM, all the new stuff is hanging on the pegs. I picked up 3 Utapau troopers and a Cody, a pretty modest piece of the pie considerring what was there. I was stoked.

I was actually going to stash some of the other "good" stuff for the Matts, but then all of a sudden, 2 other guys show up behind me. They had an obvious scalper look about them, and I can say without a doubt that they were not pleased to see me. I gave them my dirtiest look and slowly stepped aside to see what they were looking for. Of course they started thrashing around for Cody's and the chase pewter holograms. They each loaded up with like 15 figures in their arms, then moved over to the newly stocked ML section. They cleaned out the entire Apocolypse wave. Then they slugged their way over to the Hot Wheels. :frus:

I can usually spot the regular scaplers in the Frederick area, as they're pretty much the same guys that have been around since I've been collecting for the last 15 years or so. But these guys are definitely new. Fat, middle-aged, punchable-faced scalpers, without a doubt.

mtriv73 and mm74md, if you guys need anything, just let me know. I'm renewing my commitment to hit Target every morning at 8:00 before work if that's what it takes to beat these guys. I'll run them outta town by the time it's all said and done.

Roanoke Walmart, yesterday:
They are doing some serious remodeling in there, so you are lucky if you can find where the various parts of the toy section is located. If you do, however, they had about 5 Ultra Titanium ARC-170s and X-Wings. No new figs, but the Early Bird Kits were also on sale for $9. Too steep for me after picking one up already for $5 last week.

Other clearance coups: 500th Vader for $5 (last one), Unleashed Asajj Ventress for $3...finally a price these things may move with.

Roanoke Target didn't have anything new out.

I appreciate it Sean, but I'm all caught up at the moment. I'm trying to find stuff for other people now (although I wouldn't mind another Cody.)

By the way, the Target in Frederick officially has the lowest prices in the area now at $5.83. All the other Targets as well as Wal-marts are over $6.00For some reason, it varies from Target to Target on the price. Yet another reason to have friends who can get there early.

See you guys at the new website.

Note that I said looking. The best we have on the horizon are vaccines that may protect against some specific strains. Kind of like a flu shot but less effective (isn't that encouraging!)

Hey kh, let me know if you have picked up the EBK yet. If you haven't and you were going to wait until tomorrow, you don't have to get it. I went to WM today and they have them down to $9. I didn't get one, incase you had already picked one up for me. But if you haven't picked one up for me yet, then I'll get one from the store here within the next couple of days. Just let me know.

I picked up an extra Utapau clone today and the "walking" version of Darth Vader from Target. They dropped their prices to $6.64.

WM had replenished their pegs, but nothing good. Their prices were at $6.63.

Both places had a couple Sora Bulqs too kh. First time I have seen that one in a looooong time.

Get back at me kh.

Haven't posted in a while (haven't really found anything new until today).

After hitting 4 Targets & over 100 miles this morning, I'm finally caught up. It seemed like today was "restock" day at most of the area Targets. Between the 4 stores I saw at least 6 Utapau Clones, Holo Ki-Adi's, Cmdr Cody's, and most of the others from the Coruscant wave. The only exception being Foul, which I only found 1 of. Only thing I'm lacking now are the UGH figs. Found 3 today, so that's a good start. Wasn't going to collect these, but changed my mind (wife is gonna kill me).

Slicker
03-25-2006, 05:38 PM
Well, the UGH's have been found in this area...unfortunately not by me though. A couple of guys over at RS have found them and one guy today found and bought 8 of them. Pretty impressive if you ask me. I've gotta get out more so I can get my hands on these.

I'll probably go and pick up the EBK on Monday, maybe it will drop some more by then too. They had plenty so i'm not at all worried that they will sell out in a couple of days. Thanks for the offer though kh, I really do appreciate it.

That's sweet that the UGH have been found in this area but I seriously doubt I will find them any time soon. When I went to Target and WM earlier today they had the pegs pretty full so I can't see them restocking anytime soon. Obviously I'll continue to check them out anyways. What stores were they found at Slick?

Slicker
03-25-2006, 11:03 PM
i went to Mil, PA, FC, and newport news. They were found at Targets. Military Highway, Princess Anne, First Colonial and Newport News. That pi55es me off since I just checked the PA and First Colonial ones yesterday to no avail. At least they were found by a collector and not a scalper (which I think this area surprisingly is lacking. I haven't heard of any scalper rings).

Found absolutely squat today.

Lynnhaven Wally - Nothing
Lynnhaven TRU - Nothing (had a couple of the mega buys with Tarkin though)
PA Wally - Nothing
PA Target - Nothing
First Colonial Target - Nothing
Street Corner - El Chuxter's mom. It was the variant scabby version but I passed on it since everyone has had it so it isn't rare.

I did pick up the newest Titaniums so I guess I found something.

UKWildcat
03-28-2006, 05:40 PM
Went to WM today and got the EBK at $9. They didn't have any good basic figs.

Target didn't really have anything. They did have an Utapau Clone and I was going to buy it until I noticed that there was a staple through the cardboard. Nothing attached to it or anything, just a staple. So I put it back. Kinda makes me wonder? :confused: Employees doing this? hasbro? possible return or something? Any ideas?

Slicker
03-29-2006, 12:04 PM
What's that? Slick finally got the Coruscant wave? Awesome, every home should have it.


Found the entire Coruscant wave at Gen. Booth K-Mart today. Now that headache is over with. They also had 2 Utapau Clones left on the pegs. If I had read your last post I would've picked one up for ya. Sorry about that.

Forgot to mention that since they were at K-Mart I dropped $7 apiece on them. OUCH! But since I haven't seen them yet until today I didn't take any chances and I got them.

Roanoke Walmart: 10 EB Kits remaining, still ringing up at $9. These will be worthless very soon. 6-8 Titanium Vaders and Boba Fetts, including Vintage Finish. No new figs.

Roanoke Target: The Coruscant wave in some form was there. Only remaining new figures were one Utapau Clone and Lushros Dofine, which I picked up. Lots of Vaders, so I think this was a revision case.

Roanoke TRU: Lots of Titanium vehicles, including two UGH Slave I's that were sitting at the front of the pegs. They had a revision wave of figs there as well, with several U. Clones and some Carkoon. Mega 2-packs, but no Tac Ops Troopers in them...just Tarkins, Wookie Heavy Gunners, and Aak Ask.

Roanoke Kmart: What do you think? Nothin. They did have a 12" OTC Luke on clearance for $15, though.

C-Burg Target: With a lot of hope with what I found in Roanoke, I was disappointed at the same old nothing at the CB Target.

Oh, no worries at all man. I already have a couple of these and since they are released in numbers in several assortments, I shouldn't have a problem getting the amount I want. Don't worry about picking one up for me. Thanks though.

They've been turning up at K's in several places in this area. I only found out about the figures from a post on RS and the same guy that gave the info on the Gen. Booth haul also saw them at the Battlefield K-Mart so don't count out K-Mart quite yet.

Oh yeah! I've actually been in both of those, but it's been 10 years. They never had any good Star Wars toys then either. I also remember the one at Cross Roads on Hershberger now. I just never went in there.

Almost forgot to post what I've found today...TRU in Frederick just got in a bunch of waves 2,3. All the clones are gone, but there are still some gonks, at-at drivers, a Jango Fett, and a bunch of snowtroopers and Yodas. Thinking about K-mart yesterday spurred me to go check the one here today. That was a waste of gas. The Wal-mart on 26 in Frederick got in the hoth wave the other day.

Don't know, but it sure feels good to be home.:yes:

Did a little running around today and found a Commander Bly with the white articulation rings in the shoulders & ankles. Not a big deal, I know.

Also managed to get the H&V clones last night at Target. They didn't have any on the shelf, but showed them in the back so I had the employee bring out a case. Always helps to ask.

Still haven't seen any VOTC at any of the area WalMarts.

mtriv73
05-18-2006, 07:09 PM
I found the VOTC at a Wal-mart in Mt. Airy (think small town) but haven't seen them (or even a peg for them) in Frederick (think Roanoke sized town.)
I take that back, Target had a peg for them, but no figures. I got mine online from bigbadtoystore for less than target was charging.

05-18-2006, 07:54 PM
While at Target today I noticed that the H&V figures were priced at $6.99 and right next them, the basic figs were priced at $6.64. Both rang up accordingly. I find this a little strange as they are essentially the same thing. :confused:

Know both of those towns well. Grandmother lives in Westminster.

I've found all of the VOTC (Pot. Mills TRU) and have seen them at Target, but never at any of the WalMarts (at least 3 of them) that are in my area. Just thought that it was kinda strange since it seems that every other W-M has/had them.

Nimmo Rd. WM had alot of the new Unleashed figures. They had at least 4-5 sets there.

Cburg Walmart, 12:00pm: Crazy number of Unleashed figures, all jammed on a shelf where you have to tilt them to get out. I pulled out a maimed Shocktrooper to open and left the good ones for fellow collectors in the area. I don't know any besides KH, but they have to be around because we get a pretty good turnover of stuff.

I'm hoping the Han's stick around and go on clearance. I wouldn't mind opening him up and sticking the helmet on since I didn't get the Stormtrooper when it came out.

Dagnabit. You must have been there right before me (I ran out for a late lunch.) Maybe I'll find those titaniums this weekend. I was also hoping to pick up a Momaw, but no such luck. I thought the H&V were marked down to $4 also but when it rang up $6.63 I put the extra clones back. Target does have a plethora of battlepacks.

Speaking of my Anakin(here's two rough cust. service issues)...FedEx online stated it was delivered(left on front steps in rain) around 8:30 this am. I ran up to find...nothing. After several run-ins with automated services & a live human who stated they couln't even start a trace till Mon...it showed up 1 hour later via a woman in a reg. plain car who stated that the Fed-Ex guy's wife went into labor. Whatever! Then I went to WalMart & asked the grumpy, dumpy woman who was stocking if she could check two "basic" cases on a palllet(using nice words like please & a happy tone) to see if it was Tat. wave. She stated it was the same stuff that was out. I said that's H&V, and those boxes are marked "greatest hits". It turned out it was more old Geo. crap. So much for new stock. I did pick up the Ultra Titanium AT-AT. They also had new SW Transformers & more Galactic Heroes. On to north GB Target where I scored(last ones) Luke on speeder, rarer Ep.III Falcon & Republic Cruiser. Def. no Leia, but more Battlestar Galactica. Happy hunting this weekend!

Our community in this area isn't big at all on here but over at RS they have alot more people. I've met a couple of the RS members and they're not your typical RS types. We have a good base of good people here so you could possibly try to start a club here.

I've never been to Ollie's. What is it?

Laskin is a couple of blocks from where I live.

Don't know how well you know the area but I live in Linkhorn Bay apartments which is about 3 blocks or so from Laskin.

I pretty much got that information from my contact from PSWCS. He said that it would be great to try to start a club here but he doesn't think there would be enough support for it. Who else do we have if we don't have each other? LOL!

I don't do the forums other then this one. You can see by my join date and how much I post my lacking there of. I figure if I could make a few contacts maybe I could get the ball rolling on a club?

www.olliesbargainoutlet.com We're over in the Hilltop Regency shopping center. We did have some SW stuff for grand opening like 12" electronic Jango and Obi Wan for $7.99 each, 12" Luke w/Tauntaun $9.99 each, 12" Saga Kenobi, Garidan and Jawa 2pk for $7.99 each and a few odd 3 3/4" figures for $2.99 each. I got one of each 12"er. I get 20% off on top of that price! Good stuff CHEAP!

We just bought another Hasbro sample warehouse so we should see more of this older stuff coming in. I know that my store in Norfolk will be getting a large shot of it. My DM knows I am a big SW geek so he is going to try to hook it up for my store!

We'll have to meet for lunch or something and talk shop. You're Navy? I was Army. I ran the Uniform Center at Bethesda from July03 to July05 before I left for Ollies. The best job I ever had but the pay was HORRIBLE!

Welcome Underdog, I dont live in that area by you, but you got some pretty good stuff there. Let us know what comes in, we trade alot here amongst ourselves.

Ollies is everywhere. Check the website for them. If you live in northern VA then there really isn't anything close to you:-(

Hey fellas, check your local TRUs.

I found the Hunt for Grievous Battlepack. (well actually my fiancee did at my request for her to check my local TRU.) Only one there was too, and it was hidden...

Anyway, if Pittsburgh has them, good chance you folks should too.

Good luck!!!

I can't say for certain if all Ollies will get the Hasbro stuff. Distribution isn't normal like other stores. Without getting into Company policy I can tell you that new stores will get the most of "buys" like this. So my best guess at where it will go:
1. Military Cross
2. Virginia Beach
3. Hampton
4. Erie
4. Ohio Stores
5. Pittsburgh Stores
Maybe old stores after these ones?
It is also hard to say what we will get. Last year when they opened State College I was lucky to score my Clone Wars Special Ops Gunship for $12.99! I also got AOTC Obi Wan Jedi Starfighter for $3.99 and AOTC Deluxe Clone Trooper on Speeder for $2.99! Other stores got different things. It is the way Ollies operates. I am lucky to be in a new store now, opening my own store in 2 months and in one of the highest volume stores right now! The more you sell the more you get. I know this isn't the answer you'd like to hear but it is what I can tell you. I know I'll post on what we get AND if anyone would like me to get them something. Since there are a few others here I am sure nothing will be missed.

underdog25
06-15-2006, 08:29 PM
Sorry:cry:

Ollies isn't known for quick and easy distribution. Slow, VERY slow. The second problem is that it doesn't go to every single store. I made the list as to where I thought it would go but we never know. There is no way to look and see where it is at. For all I know it could still be in Hasbro's NY warehouse we bought. I can also tell you that we never know what is on our trucks until we unload them! No manifest per sey like TRU. At least when I was at TRU we'd get the manifest printed out to see what was on the truck.

An example of the distro problem is when Ollie's bought the Hasbro stuff last summer. All the new stores got hugh amounts and none of the other stores got anything until Christmas time. My old store only got AOTC Jedi Starfighters and AOTC deluxe figures. Only 1 case of each! There was also a distro problem with the ROTS snack food we got. Some stores got these hugh C3po displays and others didn't. I didn't see it.

I will post as soon as I get a better word or see it coming. I really think the bulk of it is going to go to the new Mansfield OH store and the Norfolk VA store for grand openings.

I hope this helps clarify a bit?

BTW I lived in Thurmont from 03 to 05!! I know Frederick VERY well:-)

Well, it was just released about 2 weeks ago so most stores have only gotten one shipment if they've gotten any at all. It's a troop builder set, so it's automatically in higher demand than some others. Finally, people have been searching for this thing for 2 months since the gunship was released, heightened anticipation translates into higher sales. Just be persistent and patient and you'll find it.
