The Laurel TRU had 8 12" Jango Fetts and the new Unleashed figures. This was around 4pm.

I was at the KB Toyworks in Bowie this evening. They had the Bespin Luke with the peg on his hand. I was talking to one of the employees. He told me they had the latest wave in that had Chewbacca and Han Solo but it sold out this morning. He said they were going to be gettin another shipment soon. They figures were already marked down to $4.99.

So, at least we know that Han and Chewbacca are arriving in the area.

Glad to have at least something to report --

TRU at Kingstowne had a couple each of the Unleashed figures (passed) and 4 (3) of the 12 inch Jangos.

KB Toyworks at Seven Corners, which had a fairly substantial number of preview figures a week ago, has been cleaned out of them, and also had no evidence of the Han/Chewbacca/Obi Wan wave. There were, however, plenty of $2.99 ultimate hair Queen Amidalas.

Has anyone seen an Acklay?

I cruised out to Waldorf today. The only thing I found was 1 Han Solo at the KB toys. He was only $4.99 too. Yippie!

Checked a bunch of places this weekend at least two each of Target, KB, Kmart, Walmart and TRU. Nada. I wonder if the retailers are holding off on putting new figs out to let the old ones sell off at the new price?

Major Karr
06-09-2002, 11:08 PM
I have to agree, it is beginning to get really frustrating not being able find anything new and seeing in other threads how elsewhere stuff is to be found. It even looked like the K-Mart in Gaithersburg got rid of everything they had. Found only 6 pegwarmers.
I did see the Fetts unleashed at the TRU in Hagerstown...was not impressed at all so I passed.

The Barnes & Noble in G'burg had in the bargain section the 12 inch figure and book set of Anakin (Darth Vader) and C-3PO on sale for $24.98, originally $75. Not a bad deal.

Hi guys and dolls.

OK--good stuff.

Deluxe Anakin and nexu at the Fair Lakes Kohl's. A few of each left.

I have an extra Palp and Djas I'll give to another collector at cost, $5.99 each. Just email me if you want it: kevingianotto@aol.com or kgianotto@healthcharities.org.

The good news is that I just got Palpatine and Djas Puhr.

The bad news is that they came in my mailbox from kbkids . . . .

Just in case there are any stragglers, there is beaucoup Dooku at Potomac Yards Target. Otherwise, same drought as everywhere else.

Major Karr
06-13-2002, 09:08 PM
I think I am about ready to agree with Skyward. It is really getting tiresome driving from place to place in hope of finding those last few figures. Has anyone had good luck getting quality merchandise from any particular online source? I am beginning to think that is the only way to wind up this now boring search.

underdog25
06-14-2002, 06:26 AM
Give it some time. I haven't gotten new figures in the store since the Bespin wave! They are all sitting in store's DC's. They won't make it out until either the crap that is out sells OR Hasbro takes back the crap that is out. They did it with the Ep1 figures and should do it soon with the Ep2 figures. It sucks but nothing else we can do.

Rogue II

So instead of warming the pegs at all of the main stores, the Saga figures will be sitting on the pegs at the toy outlet stores next to the McFarlane figures, right?

Clearly, there's a trend here. Nexu and Deluxe Anakin at Wal-Mart Kingstowne. This is more of a sighting report, though, since others there at the same time took the rest of the Nexi. Couple of the Anakins were left; I did not see any of the new basic figures.

TRU at Kingstowne had a couple of 12" Jangos and the Unleashed figures.

No Acklay sightings --

Potomac Mills WalMart has finally filled up their pegs. Unfortunately, they've chopped down the basic figure section to 3 freak'n pegs. All full of Zams and Senator Jar Jars. They did have the Nexu and Deluxe Anakin. Decided to pick up another Nexu to have both variations.

Pot. Mills Target........Deluxe Ani & Nexu

Stopped by Potomac Mills WalMart today and much to my suprise, found that they restocked their pegs (now 9 pegs instead of only 3). Picked up the Endor Raid Solo and the Final Battle Jango with the flames going up. They had a bunch of the Bespin wave. All the Lukes were the non-bloody type.

Still lacking Palpatine, Puhr, Chewie and Obi Pilot.

The Gaithersburg Target today had both a Palpatine and 2 Djas Puhr, but the Palpatine had an awful paint job and I left it behind. No sign of Chewie or Han. The Germantown WM yesterday had lots of the Bespin wave, but not the bloody Luke

Major Karr, have you seen a lot of Palpys and Puhrs? I'm desperately looking for those 2. Maybe we could work out a trade. Email me or PM me if interested. Also, I work in MD so maybe we could meet somewhere. Are you looking for anything yourself?

I want to give out a big "Thanks" to you guys. After reading all the posts about people finding Djas & Palpatine at area Targets I decided to try my luck.

Found both of them at the Target off of Guinea (sp?) Rd. in Fairfax. Only had one of each but it looks like these are finally starting to show up in the area.

Hello everybody

I found the Acklay at the new Owings Mill Walmart this evening. Also had tons of the Bespin wave and several Orn Free Taa, Rebel soldier, and Massiff, Deluxe Anakin & Nexu.
Got the last Obi-Wan Pilot though. Sorry!
Since its a new store, grand opening today, they will probably restock and clean tonight. So maybe some more Obis & Han & Chewies in the morning.

Good luck with you hunts!

The Target in Gaithersburg and Germantown had lots of the Bespin wave on Wednesday, even found a lone "bloody" Luke among 8 other Lukes. Also found a Palpy in G'burg Now all that remains is Han, Chewie and Obi-Pilot.

I got the Nexu and Acklay at the Hagerstown, MD Target tonight. Also, the Hagerstown Wal-Mart now has lots of the Bespin wave, and still has a fairly large amount of the Orn wave. No sign of newer figures though, I still haven't seen Djas or Palpatine, or the Endor Han wave.

Looks like the Palpy wave is finally starting to show up in the area.

Potomac Mills WalMart - Lots of the Bespin wave (no bloody Lukes) as well as the Endor Soldier wave.

Potomac Mills Target - Looks like they put out one case of the Palpy wave. There were 2 Palpatine and 2 Djas. Left them.

Potomac Mills TRU - nothing new. They did have a bunch of the POTJ Imperial Officer & Rebel Fleet Trooper if anyone still needs some army builders.

Garrisonville WalMart (Rt 610 in Stafford) - bunch of the Bespin wave, again no bloody Lukes. Did see one Endor Solo with the card slightly bent. Left it.

Fredericksburg Target - nothing new

Fredericksburg TRU - nothing new. They did still have at least two AT-STs.

Fredericksburg WalMart - Bespin wave as well as the Endor Soldier wave. Much to my suprise they had one Snowspeeder on the shelf. Don't collect ships anymore so it's still there.

K-B Spotsylvania Mall - nothing new.

Found tons of Bespin Vaders and Lukes, Final Battle Boba Fett and Mace at Clinton WalMart. They also had two snowspeeders and two TIE bombers! Picked up one of each. No newer waves, nor any of the new deluxe figs.

Jobare. I believe the Vader I bought tonight is the one with the partially closed hand w/ palm pointing directly up. It looked different from the gazillion others that were on the pegs. However, I looked in the picture archive and SSG did list any variations for this figure. Perhaps we are seeing things?

Sloppy - it's funny that you mention the Bespin Vader, I was just looking at mine tonight and I don't think we're seeing things. They're, without a doubt, different. Even the sculpt on the fingers are different. I remember seeing something about there being a variation with the palm up and partially closed, but I can't remember where I saw it.

There is an almost scalper-proof (you hear me -- stay away!) cache of desired items in Springfield.

TRU has multiple 12" Jangos, and the Wal-Mart has more Bespin Lukes (both non-bloody magnet and flesh peg) and Vaders than you could ever want to see. There were also a couple of Obi-Wan Starfighter pilots and a single Han on a bent card.

Oh, and about eight Acklays . . . .

Picked up one of those Nexu variants that you and I talked about - the one with the tail going to the left. My guess is that this is the common version. Target had a bazillion of these and no versions with the tail coming forward. Also found one deluxe Anakin.

The WalMart there had approx. 45-50 Bespin Chewies (I lost track after 45) and approx 35-40 Endor Solos, not a single one of them were the white variation. They also had 15-20 Dookus, 5-8 Hanger Anakins, 3 Yodas and 2 Palpatines. Of course they didn't have the two I need, as I'm sure everyone else does, Ki-Adi and Teemto.

Also stopped by:

To tell you the truth, with everything that's going on I've completely forgotten. I think it was the Acklay, pilot ObiWan, Chewie and the silver variation of Endor Han.

I'll let you know about this weekend as soon as I find out.

I am from Roanoke, VA, out of your area I know, BUT our Wal-Marts are fed out of the same warehouse in Chesapeake, VA. I went to my 2 local WM's this morning and I thought I hit the mother load. The first one had 70+ cases. This is a conservative estimate. I know the department manager and I put the figures up as I break open the cases. Well we filled all the pegs, which were nearly empty and we filled an endcap which was COMPLETELY empty and there was still 3/4 of a pallet left. There were Puhrs, Palpatines, Chewies, Solos (white canister again) and Obi Wan's overfilling the pegs. But out of all the case he and I opened, there was only one case that had Teemto and Mundi!! I ckecked the wave # and tried to find more that were not opened, but no such luck. The next closest store got about as many figures in and I did not see that assortment or wave # at all! With as many cases as they got in, it may be a while before I see anymore. But this matches the descriptions of some of the NOVA stores - full of Chewies and Puhrs, but no Mundis.

I have never seen so many SW figures being delivered to a single store at one time - it was unreal!

Hi strangers...been a while since I've posted.

I'm gonna digress for a minute to say thanks to all of you for creating and maintaining a great forum. I sometimes scan the other boards in curiosity of what is hitting where, and am amazed (and let me say again, AMAZED) at the rude, callous and downright immature behavior of some of the individuals on other boards. I thought we were all in this together, for the fun and community of the hobby. One person's find is a score for all of us. That some people on other boards take delight in posting finds and not saying where they were able to find their new loot, or making just God-awful comments (on one board, some punk had the audacity to call someone a "homo-flamer" - let me tell you this "homo" would like to wipe the floor with him) makes me sad for the hobby as a whole. You guys and gals are great. This board (and the board at RebelScum) is a great community, and I'm glad to be a part of it, and to count all of you as friends.

That said, wanted to let you know that I was able to find Lott, Tusken and Watto at the Gaithersburg (not Germantown) Target in Maryland (a short jaunt for most of you up I-270). They're out there, so keep hunting. There were only one of each left, and I snagged them.

Thank yooouuu! These tips save on alot of gas truckin' around from retailer to retailer. I alas have not seen the "beardless" endor soldier in any case assortments. I'm not sure how he's packed. Lott Dodd & Watto also appeared to be short shipped.
Any other Marylanders out there searching?

I have them...but many new figures were at KayBee Toyworks in Bowie Sat. Lots of Clone Trooper Pilots, Anakin & Jango Slave 1 pilot. No "BabyFace" Endor soldier, nor did I see any Wattos or Lott Dodd. Lots of Padme pilot & Darth Maul Sith Training. Sparky...I have been wondering about flippin' Anakin too...saw him(but didn't buy) at Columbia Target..but no evidence of Deluxe Geonosian or Clone Trooper w/speeder bike. No clue on red battle droid...yet!

I found the Deluxe Geonosian at Target in Westminster on Saturday. They only had one and a couple of flipping Anakins. Haven't seen anything else new except Padme pilot at KB in White Marsh.

Stopped by Target in Springfield Mall last night and found at least 12 Gunships. No new figs. Potomac Mills Target also had a few Gunships and 1 Deluxe Anakin. No sign of the Deluxe Trooper or Geo. Warrior.

On a side note, with this nutcase running around shooting people, I hope everyone has a safe weekend.

I stopped by Ames in Largo(8 days 'til closing). Toys are 60% off. They still had some battle droids, Super Battle Droids, POTF2 Leia Speederbikes, Sneak Preview STAPs, Padme, Tessek, Saga Jar Jar, and a few other Jedi. They also had Slave I, Jedi Starfighter, and the Reek.

Target in Landover has the Clone Trooper Speederbike, and the big R2. Nothing else new.

Just to share Jobare's sentiment...be extra careful going into WalMarts, Targets & Toys R Us. I'm looking over my shoulder way too much...but these are sad times...this person or persons will slip up and be brought to justice...but I hope not at the expense of more lives. We may be safer near malls or areas with a greater concentration of traffic...but so many of these outlets have wooded areas nearby. To echo that phrase made famous by Hill St. Blues..."Lets be careful out there!"

He also saw the mace and dooku unleashed figures, which I didnt even know were out yet. The dude working in the toy area said they have LOTS more cases in the back.

I went to toys r us in frederick last night and they had all the new basic figures (they should give me a discount or something for this free advertising.) The only thing they seemed to be running low on were clone trooper pilots (sorry guys, I needed 2, they had 2, I bought 2.) Hopefully they have more in the back.

Finally found the Gunship today at TRU in Columbia. Only saw the one on the shelf, but their SW section is not very big. No new figs there yet.

Rogue II
10-15-2002, 11:06 AM
I've noticed all of the Star Wars Sections in the stores(Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart) are getting smaller. The KB Toyworks in Bowie is the only place I've been that still has an aisle dedicated to SW.

mtriv73
10-15-2002, 11:51 AM
Harry Potter toys are edging star wars toys out of their aisle space. It had been a while since they released any new figures and sales have really dropped. There isn't much sense in putting out more of something that isn't selling in the first place. Maybe the release of the new waves will turn that trend around.

Thanks for the tip Mtriv. I got 10 new figures i needed a toys r us Frederick today.

2 more gunships at the Ellicott City Walmart at rts 40 & 29 tonight at 6:00 p.m. One of the boxes looked a little beaten, but go get 'em if you need 'em!

10-16-2002, 11:28 AM
Glad I could help Jedikmg. Has anyone seen the clone trooper with speeder bike? Also, what day do targets around here usually restock their toys? I've only seen the accessory sets once and still need to get the hoth and Endor sets. Thanks

I've seen the Clonetrooper w/ speederbike at the Largo Target and the Bowie KB Toyworks.

10-16-2002, 08:43 PM
Thanks Rogue II. I got a few more of the figures I didn't get the other day at Toys R us in frederick. They seem to have a great supply in the back. No one else in Frederick has the new figures out (that I've seen). Also, the old Wal-mart has Acklays and Reeks for 9.98, the deluxe figures are $7.76, and the vehicles are marked down as well. (The speeders are less than $10 and Slave I is less than $19.) Good luck to everyone who was patient enough to wait for the price to go down.

I just saw the Arena playset at the TRU at Bailey's Crossroads. They had at least 2 of them. They also had lots of the new Padme, Anakin and Clonetrooper. Has anyone seen the speederbike/clonetrooper anywhere else besides Bowie/Largo?

jonthejedi
10-18-2002, 09:14 AM
It seems everyone is looking for the clone trooper w/speeder bike...including me! I checked Bowie Kay Bee Toyworks yesterday...if they had em, they're gone now. I haven't seen much anywhere...except Republic gunships are popping up at Targets here & there. Happy hunting!

The collector's database has them listed for Nov 02. http://systems.figures.com/database/index.html?page=detail&sdomid=5&sitemid=29607

I stopped by Potomac Mills TRU today. They had all sorts of figures I haven't seen.
Padme Pilot
Jango Fett Pilot
Obi-Wan Pilot
Clone trooper pilot
Teetmo
Tatooine Anakin
Watto
Tusken Raider w/ Massif
Lott Dod
and some "rare" figures from the first 40:
Count Dooku
Yoda
HD Anakin

There were also a couple Battle arena playsets, and some of the Clonetrooper ship.

And a large stack of 12" Luke w/ Tauntauns.

Finally, several of the small micro-ships from ATOC...Solar Sail, AT-TE(?)

Congrats on the finds Rogue. I stopped by there yesterday during lunch and came across the "clean face" Endor Soldier. Couldn't believe it. Had to dig to the bottom of the bin. Sorry about not posting, slipped my mind.

Rogue II
10-19-2002, 04:00 PM
The Clean Endor Rebel Soldier was the only one I didn't see....and the only one I wanted. My wife bought the Padme Pilot because she collects Padme figures. I ended up walking out of TRU empty handed.:(

The clean Endor Soldier was the only reason I went there too. I found two of them and got both of them, one for myself and one for fellow collector "Big Sloppy". If I happen to run across another one I'll grab it for ya.

Rogue II
10-19-2002, 10:21 PM
I'm sure I'll find one eventually. I actually customized one using the POTF2 Endor Soldier. I did a triple head swap....Bespin Guard 's head went on POTF2 Endor Soldier...POTF2 Endor Soldier's head went on the SAGA Endor Soldier....Saga Endor Soldier's head went on Bespin Guard's body. I posted a pic of the new Bespin guard in the ESB Customs thread.

The clean shaven Endor soldier is 1 per case for right now. I am sure they will update the assortment so he is at least 3 or more per case. That is why he is such a tough find. If you go to a TRU just ask. All of them have tons of stuff in the back.

Has anyone seen saga R2's warming the pegs anywhere? It's a great sculpt for repainting to customize other astromechs.
