I also saw the clearances at CBurg Target for the same price. They also had the Lava Vader exclusive on clearance for 7.48, which I picked up for that cheap since I cant find anything else to get.

My friend Dave picked up snowspeeders for both of us today at Target in Frederick. He also said the unleashed were marked down to $10.

WM in Radford had the Unleashed Luke in the round tub.

WM in CBurg had the Sith lords and Carkoon Battlepacks.

South Glen Burnie WalMart off 97 had the TAC Prequel Collector Tins in this am(3 of each), plus...(the Force help us), MORE H&V, Greatest Battles, old saga, etc. On a happier note, GB TRU DID have(finally) all(multiples of each) Endor2/Naboo wave #44-52. Noone had touched them! This was around lunchtime. On a holiday note, I picked up the fabriche Yoda at Target's Xmas set-up(didn't see Vader). But, those Kurt Adler ornaments have to be the ugliest, worst painted SW atrocities ever produced. The Vader snowglobe was passable, but the rest...eek, wouldn't get 'um on clearance. PLeeeaaassse, if you haven't checked them out, grab the Hallmark ornaments this year. The Walker(sound chip is great for something so small, awesome paint job!) & Obi VS. Anakin(sound effects, dialog AND light effects) are some of the better ones to come out. I like the Kurt A. ships from SW last year, saw them once at Ellicott City TRU, never picked them up, never saw them again. Happy hunting! TRU may be the place for new saga wave this w/e.

I still aint seen the Naboo/Endor 2 wave yet. Its pi55ing me off.

10-16-2006, 03:57 AM
I think your best shot at this point is TRU...at least they have more room than WalMart.

Kidhuman
10-16-2006, 07:25 AM
The closest TRU is an hour away and it always has nothing new in it.

Slicker
10-16-2006, 09:18 AM
I'm gonna make a run out today KH so I'll check for ya.


The only thing I've gotten recently is the Carnor/Kir two pack.

mtriv73
10-16-2006, 02:10 PM
TRU in Frederick had 1 of the tins left today (Episode 3) as of 1:00 P.M. For $30 it can stay there as far as I'm concerned. I'll wait for the $25 ones at WM before I even think about buying them.

Also, I just got an e-mail saying my Masterpiece Starscream was delivered today. I can't wait to go home and open it up. It's one of 2 transformers I've bought in the last 2 years (the other was the ARC-170) but I just couldn't pass up something that looked that good. (Now I know how my wife felt when she met me. :love: )

jonthejedi
10-16-2006, 03:23 PM
Both Glen Burnie WalMarts had the new spring activated, "Force-action" lightsabers(I only saw Vaders & Obi-wan's. I picked up the new Titanium forged C3PO & General Grievous at the south location. I don't think this line is long for this world, so I nabbed them. They had the Titanium Ultra Falcon back in(this is cancelled so I'd grab if you want one), as well as several Sarlacc Pit BP's from Sparky's earlier post.

Kidhuman
10-16-2006, 04:12 PM
CB Target got the snowspeeder and Fisto's JSF.

Slicker
10-16-2006, 04:36 PM
I still haven't seen any of the Target Snowspeeders around. I went out today but found nothing new so I just grabbed a couple of the GB figs I still need.


KH, what figures and goods do you have for me still? I noticed a couple of figures I'm missing but couldn't remember which ones you'd gotten me.

jonthejedi
10-16-2006, 06:27 PM
Yeah, those guys are pretty cool. The north GB Wally had all the BP's: Sarlacc, Sidious vs. Jedi & Sith Lord Attack. They are not in SW section, but on endcap off main aisle w/SW Tramsformers. I'm not into repacks right now, so all are there.

Kidhuman
10-16-2006, 09:07 PM
Slick, I got you the 501 and a shocktrooper. I also have you an EBK, A-Wing fighter and Jerjerrod packed up and ready to go.

I picked up the episode I tin last night at wal-mart in Frederick. A friend had called me earlier to say they had it and asked if I wanted him to pick it up for me. He said someone had hidden it on an endcap. I said for him to leave it since I wanted to see it before I decided to buy it (these should be plentiful soon anyway) and he said he would put it back in the Star Wars section so someone else could have a go at it. 3 hours later I stop by on my way home from work and someone else had restashed it in an endcap. Needless to say, I had to buy it then just to ruin the mad stashers night.

jonthejedi
10-18-2006, 03:01 PM
For those int. in repacks..the Crain Hwy. Target in Glen Burnie had the Zev snowspeeder(3) & 12(count 'em) Kit Fisto fighters on a rear endcap. The fact that these were out so plentiful at 3 in the pm says to me...they're not going to do much better than TRU's Dag. X-wing & $90 Endor Walker.

Kidhuman
10-19-2006, 01:03 AM
I picked up the 2 other 3po variants from the GB wave today, mustafar base at Kmart and regular at WM.

While at WM tonight they had 7, thats right 7 cases of the GB figures. I will never see the Endor 2 wave.

jonthejedi
10-19-2006, 03:10 PM
Stopped by the Chesapeake Ctr. WalMart in north Glen Burnie...and I don't know what scared me more: the 200 SW H&V and Greatest Battles figs. that were up by the registers in a 4-5 ft. high open top metal cage near the exit...or the fact that I spotted Endor 2/Naboo wave thrown in as well. This may explain why I never saw this wave locally. Also strange, the rear endcap in girls' toys featuring SW transformers, all 3 BP's, and 3 Prequel TAC Tins-all of Episode III ROTS? I didn't see the others.

Kidhuman
10-19-2006, 07:31 PM
I went to Target and returned my POTC figs becuase I really have no room for them, I got the snowspeeder and Clearanced Boba Unleahsed and still have some cash left over to spend.

Slicker
10-20-2006, 03:57 AM
I have still yet to see the snowspeeder in my area. Is it by chance in a different location than the normal Star Wars figure aisle?

jonthejedi
10-20-2006, 04:02 AM
Try endcaps that may not be adjacent to SW section.

Kidhuman

I found mine in the main aisle on an endcap. I have yet to see the BP's at Target though. It was on an endcap with Kit Fistos JSF.

Kidhuman
10-20-2006, 07:39 PM
Well struck gold tonight. Found the Black trooper, Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrraga, Vader and Naboo trooper at WM in Giles. At Bluefield K-mart I picked up the GH Luke & Han stormies and the Greedo and Han packs. I just need to find the Wedge TIE Pilot 2-pack on the GH.

Slick old friend, if you come across the White Trooper, Luke and Pod Racer Pilots I would appreciate it and it would make us even on everything. Thanks in advance.

Slicker
10-20-2006, 08:13 PM
I'll definitely keep the ol' eyes peeled for ya, KH. I haven't been out lately because I'm too damn burned out from driving 45 minute round trips to Best Buy for computer parts but now that my comp is back and going I'll be able to hunt more.:thumbsup:

North Glen Burnie WalMart had the Darth Tater/Spudtrooper Collectible Duo Tin on their SW Trans. endcap. Price unknown.

Slicker
10-21-2006, 03:24 PM
I saw that same 2 pack, Jon. It's pretty sweet but I didn't check for a price either.

I didn't find much of anything else. I picked up the Mace Fighter, Y-Wing, and Swamp Speeder Titaniums. They also had a Tri Fighter and a couple of others but I wasn't sure if they were just put in this assortment or if they had new packaging. If they have new packaging then I'll get 'em otherwise, MEH!



EDIT: I also found at TRU the new tins. They had all 3 of the OT ones. They're pretty sweet and I would've gotten 'em but they were kinda beat up.

Slicker
10-22-2006, 03:52 PM
Went out to Target for the carp of it and they had a bunch of new stuff.

I finally got my Snowspeeder. They also had Kit Fisto's Starfighter (exclusive) and they had the 3 new Battle Packs. I only got the snowspeeder so I'll have to go back for the others later.

Kidhuman
10-22-2006, 03:53 PM
Any luck on the Ednor2/Naboo I need?

Slicker
10-22-2006, 03:55 PM
Nada, KH. I scoured the pegs and nothing. I have only seen them once and that was the one time I got 'em.

Is this the last wave for TSC? If so then I think we may get "Sio Bibble" waved again.

jonthejedi
10-23-2006, 04:27 AM
KH...do you just need those 3 from Naboo/Endor2 wave...I'll keep an eye out as well for you. I still think restock at my local TRU will be the best bet, rather than WalMart. Then again, has Target ever gotten these in?

Kidhuman
10-23-2006, 06:12 AM
Those ar ethe only three I need Jon. Would appreciate it if you found them. Thanks.

jonthejedi
10-23-2006, 01:11 PM
I picked up the Wedge/Tie Pilot GH at south GB WalMart on Rt. 3. They also had the corrected Luke/Han Stormie sets & Greedo/Han.

Kidhuman
10-23-2006, 02:49 PM
What corrections are there?

jonthejedi
10-24-2006, 03:53 AM
The first release didn't have the black stripe circling the top of the helmet over the eye pieces painted on...the ones I saw yesterday did. I didn't see the sandtrooper/old Obi set...someone may have grabbed it. I really like the Wedge/Tie pilot; Wedge's helmet is removable, too! My son loves this line...and even has a playset(Falcon!) to go with it. I'm gonna have to try to find him the Luke/Han in stormie disguise to put under "the tree".

Kidhuman
10-24-2006, 06:01 AM
I havent seen the Wedge/TIE or Obi/Trooper packs but have the other 2.

Picked up the ESB and ROTJ tins at TRU in Frederick today. I also got a shocktrooper and R5-D4 free since they were over $19.99. They had 3 or 4 more ESB and 1 ANH tin (bad paint job on the sandtrooper) when I left.

jonthejedi
10-25-2006, 01:30 PM
Yeah, that promotion's in their flyer: free 6.99 SW figure with every 19.99 purchase. The TAC tins are pictured...too bad Glen Burnie TRU didn't get them on their truck. For people buying the tins, it's a great way to army build, get an opener on one you like, or just put 'em away for gift giving. The other two TRU's pretty much sold out of the tins immed. on Monday when the trucks unloaded. KH, I looked for your figs., but all that was staring back at me was(sigh), more Greatest Battles. F.Y.I. that free figure deal is good thru 10/28.

Sighted the repainted Titanium Rep. gunship, TIe bomber, snowspeeder, Naboo patrol fighter(cool metalic blue) at GB Target on Ritchie Hwy. They still had a ton of Zev snowspeeders & Fisto starfighters on endcap.

Kidhuman
10-27-2006, 03:32 PM
I thought I hit the mother load this morning at Target. I asked an associate to scan the tag and he said they had 3 cases in the back. I thought Endor2 for sure. HE brought out the Endor 1 cases with the clone trooper re-releases in them. GRRRRRRRRRRRR.

mtriv73
10-27-2006, 03:55 PM
I got the White Endor trooper yesterday at a TRU somewhere along 270. I never can tell if I'm in Rockville, Germantown, or Gaithersburg. It's all one long traffic jam to me.

Kidhuman
10-31-2006, 09:11 PM
Still havent found the last of the Endor 2 wave. I did get the blue naboo fighter today from WM. They also had a few tin sets. Didnt scan them for price as I am not interested in them They had AOTC and 2 TPM sets.

Haven't seen anything in a long time, but was pleased to get the Mace Squadron Battle Pack at the Falls Church Target yesterday afternoon. It was on the Star Wars endcap. DPCI is 087061797.

jonthejedi
11-01-2006, 02:05 PM
Both north & south Glen Burnie Targets had Mace Attack Squad. BP in backroom location. South Crain Hwy. store wouldn't pull it; Elect. guy said it was for 11/19 reset, and he could get fined 10 Grand a unit if caught. Yeah right. North locale on Ritchie Hwy. was more accommodating; brought case out...hoping she took my advice & put the rest on endcap at back of section with the other BP's. Happy hunting!

Kidhuman

Frederick Target has the Mace Clone sets out.

Sold out 1 hour later. :cry: The computer says they're still on the shelves, but they must be stashed somewhere. Oh well, a friend of mine picked us up 2 each at a Target in Gaithersburg just a while ago.

Found the red clone commander GB variation at WM on 26. Also picked up another SA clone and another shocktrooper as well as a Moff Jerrjerod with one raised eyebrow (It's a painting error, but it made him look very annoyed or suspicious so I had to have it.) The best part is, they were $5.60 each.

I used the DCPI to prove that they were in stock to one of the associates. She went back and brought out a case, of which I took one. She said she was going to put the rest out, but I didn't actually witness her doing it. On my way out, I did see 2 scalpers who are regulars at the Frederick Target, so I wouldn't be suprised if they nabbed the rest.

BTW, it's a great set. Can't wait for the orange version of the airborne trooper next year. Oh, and don't lose the pistol that's stuck in the back of the airborne trooper's pouch! I almost did.

Oh, and one more thing...Frederick TRU has out more ANH and ROTJ tin sets. The ESB set seems to be the real stinker, as it's piling up nicely.

I picked up the Titanium Arc-170 with the clone wars shark face deco last night (at the WM on 26 in Fredneck) as well as the repainted Star Destroyer, Slave I (Jango), and Wedge's X-wing.

The Arc-170 may be the best paint job I've ever seen on a toy that small. Everything was dead-on perfect and the gold highlights on the engines really make it stand out. :thumbsup:

Today Glen Burnie TRU had the Galactic Heroes Cinema Scenes, 24.99@(4 different). Too bad I have most of the figures, because the packaging gets an A+...really cool! They also had more OTC TAC Tins back in stock, same lousy paint aps on Vader & Rosie Perez Leia.

Walmart somehow packed out 4 more cases of the GB wave. How is that even possible.

Are they selling enough down there to make room for the new ones, or are they just stacking up to the ceiling?

I was in TRU in Frederick yesterday. They had the new GH multipacks, all 6 tins, etc. They also had just about every figure that's been released this year on the shelves. I checked a few randomly and even the ones released in the begining of the year had the red holos (so someone hadn't just given up on collecting and returned everything.) This bodes well for people who may have missed something earlier (especially kids.)

The wal-mart on 26 in Frederick finally realized they were a buck under everyone else and raised their prices back to $6.63 for basic figures. I really liked getting figures for $5.60 each the last 2 months.

Kidhuman
11-09-2006, 09:21 AM
The clones sell thats about it. There is at least one of every Vader(sans the UGH) on the pegs right now. Tons of 3po's, R2's. Dookus, Padmes and Emperors. The CB WM has never packed out any Endor wave except the 3po and DS Guner which are in a completely different section and mixed with the GH line in display boxes.

Has anything new been hitting lately?

Kidhuman
11-09-2006, 07:14 PM
Just the tins and the Mace battle pack. All that is new. I still havent found whitey trooper, rep been, or Luke.


I also spotted the order 66 unleashed battle pack for 4 shocktroopers with their guns blazing on Mustafar. Remember that in the movie? I dont and neither did my kid.

North Glen Burnie Target had all 4 "Order 66" Unleashed BP's, as well as the harder-to-find Vader/Veers Imperial Invasion & snowtrooper w/WEB cannon sets. Also saw the new deco Titaniums: Wedge's X-wing, Star Destroyer, Cartoon shark Arc, Red Y-wing, etc. I just can't even see Saga #53 & up coming out this year, the way GB & H&V are still pouring in.

Shouldn't wave 8 be out by now? I found all but 2 of the Endor 2 wave back in september for pete's sake. Maybe things will crank up after thanksgiving. I'm sure they're done with their production runs for this year and are probably making 2007 stuff by now.

Went to TRU today. They had 2 Episode IV tins and at least 7 of the ESB tins. That really surprises me. The ESB set is as good as the rest, but they really seem to pegwarm around here.

Kidhuman
11-13-2006, 07:14 PM
Found the Tranformer Han/Chewie 2 pack with Titaniums in it at WM today.

mtriv73
11-16-2006, 08:35 AM
The Wal-mart on 26 in Frederick had 8 cases of 3-3/4" wave 5 revision 4 figures on a pallet ready for stocking. I don't know what's in that wave, but having that many of them means they'll be around for a while. I thought I'd seen the last of Momaw Nadon, but I guess not.

11-16-2006, 02:34 PM
SW stuff's been slow as all get out lately, so any Joe fans out there: I found Sigma 6 Wave 4 Commandos at Frederick K-Mart yesterday. Zartan and Lt. Stone rock. I picked up Arctic SE too for Timber, which almost makes it worth the $15.

If anyone has kids, Target has a neat SW backpack/suitcase(yuknow, the strap or pullalong-on-wheels kind) on sale for 17.00(down from 19.99) thru today(Sat.). The motif is Mustafar red with Vader(of course). Has coin purse & smaller satchel attached. Cool for next back to school or as Xmas gift!!!

Went to Target and got the V-Wing LEGO set for like $9 and also got the Mace Battle Pack.


This battle pack could be the best but instead of the 2,482 points of articulation I had wanted I only get something like 15 and instead of ALL of them having removable helmets only one has it. But because of those stupid mistakes by HASblo this is by far the worst BP ever!!!

The wife is out of town this weekend. She needs to learn not to do that.

The last time she left without me I got into the titanium vehicles and spent about $200 in one weekend to get caught up. Now she goes to her sister's house for a visit and I end up buying the 10030 star destroyer (the big one with 3000+ pieces.) I feel like I got a good deal ($225 for a $300 kit,) but I have no self-restraint without her around (she's half my size but I'm afraid, very afraid.)

Oh well, I was tempted to get the attakus millenium falcon thingy but I didn't know where I'd put it when she divorces me and kicks me out of the house for spending over $3,000 on a star wars toy.

Speaking of K-mart, the one in Frederick had 3 of the Jedi Temple Packs yesterday (with the quick draw 501st troopers.) Unbelievably, they still want $30 for them. Needless to say, as far as I'm concerned they can rot on the shelves.

Fimally found the rest of the Naboo/Endor 2 wave. Sorry Slick, they only had one Luke. Was at Target. Hey, no worries. I'm just glad that SOMEONE is finding stuff out there.

Let's just say it was something significant that he probably doesn't want talked about :lipsrsealed: I unfortunately didn't save his phone number the times we traded things so I haven't talked to him for a while.

Hopefully, we'll see him around here soon and I'm sure we all wish him the best. If you happen to read this MM74MD, I've had you in my thoughts.

Both GB Targets had Imp. shuttle exclusive out this am(Sun.), although south location only had several left(I love the signs: when they're gone, they're gone, while supplies last, limited quantities, etc). KH, the WalMart I stopped at had some new Zizzle POTC figs: Capt. Barbossa, Final duel Turner, Final duel Capt. Jack. I also scored the Cantina bandmember TAC Tin at south GB Wally(2 left). Great Sunday so far. Didn't see new Titaniums.

mtriv73
11-26-2006, 03:41 PM
No cantina sets in Frederick, but the super Wal-mart has about 8 cases of the Mil.Falc. TF with the titanium exclusives. If anyone here wants the Transformer, I want the titaniums, maybe we could split a set.

The other wal-mart doesn't have anything. They're getting low on basic figures though. Maybe we'll start getting some wave 8 figures soon.

No Cantina tins here either yet. They did however pack out MORE H&V in CB WM. WTF?

Major Karr

No sign of the Cantina set at the Kingstown WM (looks like they shrank their toy department), nothing at the TRU. The KB at Springfield had the Endor/Naboo wave, with three camo variants of the black trooper.

Just hit Target on First Colonial for the heck of it.

They had just stocked out 6 or so Shuttles. When I get the money I'll definitely be getting this one (although I don't have a damn clue where I'll put it). I also picked up a Scorch. I already have him but figured someone here could use one. I'd prefer to do a straight swap for a Luke Endor but if someone needs it bad enough just PM me and it's yours. I'd prefer someone that doesn't yet have one over someone that has 37 and needs that 38th to complete there army.;)

Nothing like the Saturday score! I nabbed Saga#53-62 at north Glen Burnie Target on Ritchie Hwy. I've been ultra lucky with the last several waves, being able to find them on the w/e(I start work at 7AM, so Target's out of the question during the week). This seems to be a pattern when DC & VA get 'em mid to late week. I had 5 collectors hot on my heels when Target opened, but they were all after Hot Wheels. I also picked up Titanium chicken walker, Obi's starfighter w/hyperdrive ring(sweet!), Darth Maul on speeder bike, Ani's Sith starfighter & Padme's Ep. III star skiff. I didn't see the rest. My son & I hit the south GB Target...no saga. Someone may have grabbed them all already. Hit your Targets today, boys, and happy hunting!

I'm still searching for Chirpa and the Podracers.

Hopefully, reinforcements will be arriving soon.

I almost had one in my hand this morning at south GB Wally, but an admitted Hot Wheels scalper grabbed it before I could. He got Maul too. Said they were for his son(to me), but he knew which ones were hot, and proceeded to the car section. The dept. head even admitted they'd probably be on ebay by dinnertime. The north GB WalMart at Chesapeake Ctr. must have had them too...all I saw was a lone R5J2. They also had a big display with GH & Unleash BP multipacks for $20. Glen Burnie Toys R Us had the comic EU 2-packs for 10.99. My verdicts still out on these...they look kinda garish(or ghoulish) in person. Also saw the Ultra Titanium Falcon & Galactica. The SW section was pretty much ravaged by women & Holiday shoppers. At least it will help the old stuff sell thru. One thing I haven't seen in abundance is the Ep. 1 TAC TIN...all the rest though.

Went to CB WM today. They had about 15 cases of SW figures they were packing out. No joke, 14 of them were H&V or GB waves. The other sole case was the NAboo/Endor 2 wave which was picked through and left with only NAboo soldiers in it. They set up an end cap of the H&V and were still full price.

They also had out the 07 Lego sets. I will be getting the AT-ST, Y-Wing and Grievous for sure. The landing craft looks cool, and didnt see the clone/army builder sets.

Also packed out were the Comic 2 packs, which I gladly passed on. Might get the Tarkin/stormie set later, but for the most part, they look like carp.

Do you know how much Wally world was charging for the 2-Packs KH?

I checked both WM's, Target, and TRU today (We need an abbreviation for Target btw, maybe an emoticon in the shape of a target?) at any rate, there was nothing worth reporting beyond a few wave 8 stragglers at Target and the new vehicles at TRU. In fact, TRU had 5 Sith starfighters, several Hailfire droids, and a couple AAT's when I was there. I already have the new hailfire and sith starfighter, but I'm tempted to pick up the tank. The new deco is too nice to pass on.

Scoped around the neighborhood today(just to get out of the house). Didn't see any good clearance stuff, although Severna Park Gold Crown Hallmark had the AT-AT for 60% off(beautiful piece that you can sit on a shelf or desk...comes w/batteries, don't need a X-mas tree...it's actually free-standing!). Saw new Spiderman Origins, Titanium forged Doc Ock & Spidey(I didn't know they were doing Marvel), Ghost Rider figs. from new Nic Cage flick & new POTC Secrets of the Deep & Movie 3 Sneak Peek. The only SW I found was Anakin's modified CW Starfighter from the Titanium line(still missing a couple) at north GB WalMart.

Mortgage the house if you have to lol , but this is the best X-wing they've ever put out. Everything is painted, no stickers. The Dragon thingy is nice too.

Have you seen any titaniums anywhere? Target had 4 kabillion wookie fliers and walmart had the transformer ones, but I haven't seen the last 2 waves.

I caved as well on the Dagobah X-wing. I initially said...no way I'm giving Hasbro more $$$ for a repack. BUT, I loved the visual presentation. TRU had literally a pallet of them in the beginning. Slowly, the numbers ebbed down, and the word got out...no more restock; when they're gone they're gone. Ditto for the Tie fighter & elect. AT-AT. I probably won't open mine, and I swear mine has the dragonsnake in a different position than earlier versions. Has anyone else seen evidence of this. I know it doesn't count as a true variant.

I had heard about them moving it out from under the wing or something. I gave up on variation collecting a long time ago. And it is actually a packaging variation. If it happened back in 1998 you could proabaly find someone who would pay twice what it's worth for that kind of thing.

Target here has diddly squat except for Jerjerrod. WM also has all the H&V figures. They all have clearance tags in front of them, but the price is 6.63. WTF, its regular price. If they hit 3 bucks, I will get some clones as there are tons of #41 and shockies hanging there.

I was at the route 85 WM tonight and finally saw the cantina sets on the shelves. They had them hidden well, but I finally found them. I already have a set, so I passed them up, but it's nice to see a lion in the wild rather than just in the zoo.

Hasbrotoyshop.com has the new titaniums in stock for $4.99 each. I got Obi wans jedi starfighter, the tantive IV, AT-ST, and Vaders sith starfighter. Shipping was $4.24, but since WM raised their price on titaniums to $5.88 I figure it's pretty much a wash. (I'm bored, so I just did the math and I ended up saving $0.50 because of sales tax.:bandit:)

I'm kinda caught up 'cept for RG Red Interceptor & Jabba's Sailbarge(just waiting for Glen Burnie TRU to finish reset...they have no small Titaniums ANYWHERE). Columbia Target had all of Saga wave 8 in...first I've seen Clone sergeant from Ep. II since the day I bought mine. South Glen Burnie WalMart on Crain Hwy. had Special Value Saga twopacks...what's so special; I get two for 9.96 & one looks to be Rep Been. My big purchase was Holo. Jor-el from Superman Returns(c'mon, it's Marlon Brando for God's sake!)...for 2.63(75% off Superman action figures thru tomorrow). Also saw Marvel Legends: will finally be able to get an X3 Beast.
