Not that it really makes up for it, but we had the Wal-mart exclusive comic pack wave for weeks before it hit out west. They'll show up eventually. Pretty soon we'll be complaining about Leia clogging the pegs.

The Wal-mart on 85 in Frederick had the remnants of the ESB wave (The other figures with U-3po parts.) I also saw what must be the new clone wars wave with Jar-Jar et al. several places yesterday (both WM's and Target.)

I also found the ESB wave, at the WM just outside of the District off the BW Parkway (can't remember the name of the city) yesterday. Looks like it was just the one case though. It had the bearded Hoth trooper with cloth skirt and blue Ugnaught.

What else is new?

Aside from comic packs I haven't seen consistent replenishment of GI Joe stuff since around christmas. Occasionally TRU or target may get a case, but it seems like WM either quit carrying it, or hasn't gotten any in.

Is anyone buying the Wolverine figures? The pegs look pretty much the way they did when they were stocked. It looked like Star Trek sold well for about a week. By then all the Trekkies had 1 of each and the pegs have been holding steady.

Some a-hole is stealing build a droid parts out of the new esb wave in Frederick. There were several missing parts at the WM on 26 yesterday.

I found the AOTC wave at Radfor WM on thursday evening. I picked all up sans Obi-Wan. I will eventually get him, I figure he will be the warmer of the group and readily available at HTS.com or I will just find a clone with his piece in it and buy that instead.

^Is it on red cards?

Yes, I saw them up in Mass. last week on the new, smaller red cards.

TRU in Frederick has the Arc-170 repaint for MORE than BBTS and EE are charging. They want $79 for that piece of junk. The funny thing is right next to it is the older Arc priced at $44. If they couldn't sell those for that, then I don't see a very bright future for this part of the line. At $80 I'm even passing on the Y-wing.

Ok I havent heard about those. Will have to check em out.

There is a Coleman Trebor (Now with Knees), 2 all new Jedi (at least the heads are new), and what I think are updated Kit Fisto (smilin') and Mace Windu (no idea what the difference is.) They also have made some major and minor modifications to the droid or separatist pack-ins. It looks like the Jango Fett is the Evolutions mold but he has a blue jumpsuit rather than purple.

At 12.99 each it's a much better deal than the build-a-droid sets from Wal-mart. Unfortunately, I used to love Dark Forces and really wanted the Dark Trooper so I had to buy them all.

Incidentally, the box art shows all new sculpt (and seemingly larger) wings which, of course, it doesn't come with. Maybe this would be something to ask Hasbro about in Q&A. If they're going to release this again next year with updated wings then I'm taking this one back.

Same here. TRU has a huge gap on the pegs between the saga legends and clone wars figures. Wal-mart got one case of ROTJ wave (the only reason I know is the biker scout is still there with the blue astromech droid part. Hasbro swears the figures are in the pipeline, but I think there's a major clog somewhere.

When Hasbro went around and picked up all the Yarnas and Cantina aliens I wonder if the stores took them out of their computers. If they didn't and still think they have 20+ figures on the pegs it would explain the lack of restocks.

Cancelled pre-order with HTS and got the Snowspeeder and cloud car from TRU.com last week. They are well worth the money. (Actually since they were part of the bogo sale they're more than worth the money.)

I'm not giving Hasbro & TRU $10 @ for Vintage...although I read many are. So Hasbro will keep gouging us, and reducing quality & articulation.

Me neither, but since HTS has them priced @ 7.99 this is all TRU price gouging. They will likely be sitting on lots of product once Vintage hits all the other retailers at a more sane price point.

Found last two waves of Titaniums(Mist Hunter, Maleavelance, Nebulon Med. Frigate, Outrider, etc. at Big Lots for $4.00@. Also picked up Dark Knight in Blu-ray at Target for 15.00.

My vintage Wave 1 from HTS will be waiting for me when I get home. Has anyone been to K-mart to look for Jodo Kast? I try to avoid that place as much as I can and don't want to go until they start showing up.

I'm Lizard sitting for a friend and will have to get more crickets for it by Friday. The place I get them is near enough a K-mart that I might force myself to go in and check for the Jodo figure.

Sweet, I really want one of those GH AT-AT's for my oldest. (I don't think the 3 week old cares about toys yet.) The (almost) 3 year old loves all things Star Wars though.

Good to know they are finally showing up...though I can't decide between the new or vintage box. Scored a $16 Y-Wing at the DC Target yesterday.

Picked up cloud car & snowspeeder at Columbia Target. They rang up at 19.99@ which was a nice surprise; didn't know there was a sale of any kind on SW. Didn't spot Vintage anywhere.

Found the Visla, Aurra Sing wave at Target Fair Lakes. Springfield/Kingstowne is slow to put stuff out. Vintage figs are still 10.00 at TRU. However, did see the BAT-AT there, plus got a $10 off $50 coupon for TRU in the mail last night.

I think Target has BP's on sale as well. Boba Fett Vintage is never in stock at Target(why, scalpers, why...it's just a repaint of the Evo. boxed set Fett...is it the card?). Words won't do justice to the BAT-AT, until it's outa the box.

TRU in Frederick had whatever their huge exclusive figure is yesterday. I passed on it as well. Normally, I'm a sucker for an exclusive figure, but it just doesn't fit with the rest of my figures.

Ditto for Kingstowne, except for Boba. 7.00 is much better than 9.99.

Everyone's probably seen the Battle Packs. I've been able to pick up just about everything on my list so far, except the Jabba pack.

Of the five Walmarts I "frequent," Columbia, Sykesville, Ellicott City @ rt 29, Westminster and Hanover, PA, 3 stores have had Jabba (Columbia, Ellicott City and Hanover) the other 2 places don't even have a shelf tag. Maybe they'll have a special end cap later in the fall. Who knows? Finally got an AT-AT as I had $100 in Walmart gift cards burning a hole in my pocket. Of course the ONE I found was missing instructions and stickers, plus the bike was damaged. ARRGH! Guess you can't really get anything for free. Oh well...

^Thanks :grin:

I've seen remains of the ROTS wave at Walmart, and the whole wave at TRU, but I still refuse to pay $10 per. TRU needs to get its poodoo straight.

Severn, MD SuperWalMart restock Vintage wave 2 yet again this week; picked up foil Vader, Bespin Luke. Glen Burnie TRU had Nikto Guard exclusive, tons of product out, all-new front corner display on CW, Boba's Slave 1 set everywhere. Scored CW wave 3 with flametrooper at north Glen Burnie Target. Bummed out HTS doesn't have clamshells anymore. I need some for foils, Jodo Kast, Nikto & mail-away Fett.

Kingstowne WM had the UGH wave in this morning - about three cases. No sign of Jabba there (has anyone seen it in the DC area?). Was too early for the TRU. The Baileys Target had nothing new and the TRU had the front section with two Ki-Adis left and several Niktos.

I got the Jabba there - it's not placed in the SW section - it's stuck in the middle of the Transformers (I think) on the bottom shelf (about 3 feet to the right of SW). I don't know how many times I walked past it until I noticed that.
