^No problem, though they are sold out and had shelf warming battle packs stuck in that space now. Hopefully they'll get some more in.

Decided to pick up the Slave I set at TRU to get the $10 gift card. Going back today to get the Nikto guard. That should take a bit of the sting out of the $11 price point.

Luckily I saw the news about the free Nikto before I picked one up last week. Found a Galactic Heroes Y-Wing which was on clearance (?) for 22.98, plus I got another 25% of "select items) for a total of 17.23. I added another GH two-pack and still got the Nikto free for reasons unknown. I wasn't arguing, though. :)

A good friend just called me from Target, they're pulling the Hoth sets from the back for us. Hopefully there's no street date to hold up the purchase and I'll be playing with them tonight.

Edit: Have them in hand now. These, Jabba, the AT-AT, and the ROTJ wave are about the only things I've been really looking forward to getting since CV and comic-con.

I guess everyone is seeing the Target exclusives. I love the vintage boxed TIE - it's the same basic design as the SW box I still have from my kid-hood. Getting minty versions of these is challenging as the matte finish printing seems to be very susceptible to creasing and dings.

Found the Deluxe pack with TX-20 in it (I never found him single carded and he's one of the few Clone Wars figures I wanted) @ the Target in Westminster on Saturday.

jonthejedi
11-16-2010, 03:30 AM
Yeah, I've been seeing the deluxe speeder/AT-RT sets popping up at Target everywhere. No new CW or ROTJ Vintage....yet. I feel we're in "any day now" mode.

jonthejedi
11-16-2010, 12:53 PM
Picked up CW "Embo" wave at Laurel, MD Target...no ROTJ Vintage today, either.

mtriv73
11-18-2010, 10:18 AM
Target in Frederick had at least part of the ROTJ wave when i was in there today. I got Ackbar, Luke, and R2.

Both WM's are so deep in badly painted Clone troopers and Hoth Hans that I'm not optimistic about seeing anything there anytime soon.

jonthejedi
11-19-2010, 03:51 AM
I'm afraid that's the problem with my WalMarts AND Targets...they're drowning in ROTS Vintage & there's no room. I went to 5 Targets yesterday & nada...but they're close...very close.

mtriv73
11-19-2010, 07:11 AM
For the ones stacking up around here, the Han Solo just isn't that great of a figure. There's nothing wrong with it, but nothing really right either. The clone trooper would have probably sold out if they'd gotten the paint on the helmet right. As long as it's been in production, there's really no excuse for that especially if they're charging more for it than a basic figure TRU was drowning in ROTS the last time I was there, but I attribute that th prices $3-$4 more than the competition. I've stopped looking there for figures for that reason.

jonthejedi
11-20-2010, 04:43 AM
I STRUCK OUT Friday...but a collector friend of mine found some between Annapolis, Columbia & north Glen Burnie Targets. Many bent cards this time around from what I'm hearing.

jonthejedi
11-24-2010, 06:15 AM
This am...some luck! Severn SuperWalMart put out 1 case ROTJ Vintage...I grabbed The Pig & ran. They also had new GH wave w/Quinlan Vos & Aqua Droid.

mtriv73
11-24-2010, 10:00 AM
I've seen the wave twice now at a WM and a Target in Frederick. I ordered all the ones I didn't pick up at Target from HTS already though. They should be here today or Friday. I also picked up and extra Gammorean and skiff guard last night.

Found the Target 9 pack. These are going to be hard to find mint - all ten they had on display had bends or crumpled ends to one extent or another. I got the least damaged one. Still looking for The Pig.

12-13-2010, 03:31 AM
Glen Burnie TRU had multiple cases of Quinlan Vos & Young Boba CW waves out...these were in a dump table towards back of the store, not in the reg. section. At 7.99@...I'll wait till WalMart gets 'em back in stock for 6.00.

Found training Hevy, new Obi & Ahsoka's droid at Target off Rt. 29 in Silver Spring...no new Cad Bane.

A.J.
02-03-2011, 12:13 PM
Picked up Endor Pilots pack #2 because the shelf tag was still marked $24.99 even though it rang at $27.99. $3 doesn't seem like a lot but with everyone jacking up prices... it's the principle.

jonthejedi
02-04-2011, 03:42 AM
I would have fought that too...TRU charges more as it is. Has anyone found any new Vintage anywhere. It's like the Gobi at my local WalMarts...pegs & pegs of Saga Legends, yet the Vintage section is empty.

Fixer
02-04-2011, 07:45 AM
^ Same, just peg warmers. I did see remains of the new CW wave at Target.

jonthejedi
02-05-2011, 03:49 AM
Yeah, I was able to pick up Hevy, Bane & TODO360, Obi(new outfit) & Ahsoka's droid after hitting several Targets furthur out near Silver Spring where I was working. That's about all I've seen too.

02-16-2011, 04:22 PM
Was able to find AOTC Vintage wave this am at Severn SuperWalMart...only 1 case.

Picked up several of mixed wave at same Wally...plenty left of each.

Picked up 2 figs from the mixed wave this morning. That will be all. Since the price just went up (again), my "must have" list just went down :tired:

02-21-2011, 11:35 AM
I Got Luke, Han, R5, and Yoda today for 7.96 each at the WM on 85 in Frederick. Also stopped by TRU to get a baby gate and they had restocked with Endor pilot packs. I guess they sold too well before because the price is now $29.99 each.

mtriv73
03-02-2011, 04:39 PM
Was bored and not hungry so I went to TRU and K-mart at lunch time today. TRU has jacked up the prices on the Endor packs again to 31.99. I'm not going to be sorry when they go out of business.

K-mart had 2 pegs full of some weird looking clone wars commander exclusive who I barely cared enough about to notice.

A.J.
03-06-2011, 11:38 AM
TRU has jacked up the prices on the Endor packs again to 31.99.

Yeah, the whole "If people are willing to pay this much-then why not make them pay this much MORE" business model is going to bite them in the rubber parts eventually. In cheaper news, got a $49.00 AT-AT @ Ellicott City Walmart.

jonthejedi
03-19-2011, 03:48 AM
Where, or where is Vintage wave 6.....I read on another site someone found them at a Target in Frederick, MD. I'm already braced for the 8.99 plus tax price. There always seems to be a few shipments that slip in early...this wave wasn't listed until April anyway, oh well.

I think I can confirm the target sighting second handedly. A friend of mine found the remnants there yesterday.

Wave 6 at Kingstowne Walmart. No clones left when I got there, 'natch.

03-26-2011, 08:04 PM
They might have been there Thursday. A bit out of the loop on which wave is which, but bought the Dagobah Luke, etc there then. Did not buy any clones (price is a little steep so sticking to newer figs) but think they were there. Haven't posted in a while cause not entirely pleased with the redesign.

Got a galactic heroes AT-ST for the little guys today at TRU in Frederick. Picked up a Wedge on Amazon for $19.99, not a great price, but I have one now.

Fixer
06-08-2011, 12:19 PM
Found the AT-ST at Kingstowne TRU. I had a 20% TRU Rewards coupon in my email yesterday, so that worked out nicely.

Also got my wave 3 case from EE, so I finally have the Gamorrean Guard and Wedge.

Major Karr
07-04-2011, 09:09 AM
The DC area must be the biggest dead zone for new product if the last post was 3 weeks ago! Lucked out on wave 7 yesterday morning at the DC Target - got all except Logray because some stupid kid sprayed it with silly string. I imagine he will be easier to find later than some of the others. One question - was Wedge supposed to be in this wave or some revision of it? Or a wave 3 revision?

Fixer
07-05-2011, 07:52 AM
As far as I know, Wedge is only shipping in Wave 3 Rev 11 (http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HS97568C11) cases.

mtriv73
08-08-2011, 12:06 PM
Finally found most of Wave 7 last weekend at TRU in Frederick and Targets in Westminster and Timmonium. TRU also had the Y-wing last week. I'm not impressed with yet another use of an inferior mold (even if they did upgrade it a little.) I also saw all the new mini-rigs. I don't understand the buzz about any of them. Even the Y-wing looked horrible. The new 3 figure battlepacks are yet another way I'll be saving money this fall. It's hard to believe that the ARC trooper and Rebel fleet trooper weren't packed 2 per case at least in the initial case assortments.

mtriv73
08-24-2011, 01:14 PM
I missed them the first time they got them in, but I got the republic commandos and TFU sets at TRU in Frederick today. They had also restocked Y-wings and were amazingly low on the stealth ops clone trooper, both of which I don't really care about. I picked up the republic attack shuttle from TRU.com when they were running the one day 20% off sale. It's okay, but when my 4 year old announced that it was his I didn't put up any resistance.

Fixer
08-25-2011, 07:49 AM
Congrats - TRUs on this side of the river have been pretty dead.

Anyone have any earthquake-related collection mishaps? I had an AT-AT take a header off a 5 foot shelf, pancaking an Octuptarra droid. Fortunately both escaped without major damage. Otherwise, the destruction was mostly limited to figures falling over or off shelves.

mtriv73
08-25-2011, 10:06 AM
I haven't even thought to check the SW room. It was such a mess anyway, I don't know if I could tell if anything fell over.

WalMart outside Baltimore on waterfront was cleaned out of Vintage except for some recarded "Revenge" figs. I did find new Ponda wave at Arundel Mills WalMart in Hanover...haven't seen anywhere else. Target still seems poised to receive Vintage...but nuthin' yet, just the aforementioned shirtless Savage wave.

Saw the new Landspeeder and Tauntaun at the DC Target last night, but at $25 each seems way overpriced. Might have to wait for a sale. They were on a larger boys end display. Also seems Hasbro bypassed the clone purge there - about 10 clones and no other vintage in sight.

I decided not to wait and picked them both up. As much money as I'm saving not buying clone wars and saga legends and by not being able to find vintage figures I want, I figured I could blow the $56 with tax on these.

mu5a5hi
10-19-2011, 12:42 PM
If your Target does not have the Landspeeder and Tauntaun it might be worth asking them to check the computer for DPCI 087-06-1732. (which i think i found on this board somewhere) They didn't have them ON THE SHELF at Hampton Target, but sure enough they were in the back and they happily got them out for me. Both rang up at 24.99 each so i passed on the Tauntaun for now. Maybe I will get one later. This price is kinda high.

mu5a5hi
10-20-2011, 09:04 AM
And.. I'll be darned if i didnt go into my OTHER local target (Newport News) and give them the DPCI for 'Search for Luke Skywalker' and they had that too! Why do they not put these things on the shelves? Guess if you want something you have to ask nicely.

A.J.
10-20-2011, 11:31 AM
New Here. Hello!


Belated welcome! Saw the "Search..." battle pack in Columbia on Wed 10/19 and the landspeeder and Luke's Tauntaun at Ellicott City on Thursday. Been seeing TVC wave 9 off and on at various Walmarts, too.

mtriv73
10-20-2011, 03:00 PM
Overlooked the search for skywalker yesterday, but got it today. Feels like a little more bang for the buck getting 2 figures and a taun-taun for the same price as a taun taun yesterday.

mu5a5hi
10-21-2011, 03:31 PM
I definitely Agree. I skipped the Lukes TaunTaun for $25.. gonna wait. Not interested in paying $25 for two LESS figures and a missing half a tusk. :)

11-15-2011, 07:40 PM
Found at Kmart, Christiansburg, VA:
TVC - Slave Leia, Han in Trenchcoat, ReturnOTJ Boba Fett, Farlander, TIE Pilot, and Black Rebel Commando (Cant really call him African-American since its Long Long Ago presumably before Africa or America??) :smug: All with Prototype Boba Stickers. I picked up all but Farlander since I got him already. Hope some of the rest of you are having luck finding this wave as well!

Found revenge carded black endor rebel and stormtrooper (plus a few others I didn't pick up) at a wm in the outer banks of NC. Not that that helps anyone, but it was a rare sighting of something other than wave 4 for me and I was excited. Also got the rc republic tank on amazon for $30. They have/had the republic shuttle for $34 but I don't need another one.

mtriv73
12-17-2011, 01:46 PM
Just stumbled on an army builders wet dream @ WM in Grundy,VA. They had 5 rebel fleet troopers and at least 3 of the new arc commander as well as stormtroopers and tie pilots. I got 2 rf troopers, 1 arc commander and a slave leia.

12-21-2011, 09:13 AM
Went into Newport News VA Target this morning to pick up a prescription and I found the entire First Phantom Menace TVC wave on the pegs. No one else had touched them yet. I picked up Dofine, Maul, Amidala, and Sidious. The rest of this particular assortment doesnt interest me.. I guess its partly cause Phantom Menace is my LEAST liked Star Wars movie... I'd like a Qui-gon Jinn but I dont think Hasbro had made a sculpt of him that does not look 'wonky' yet.

Anyhow If you are into these, check your Targets!

WM on 26 in Frederick had figures marked down yesterday. I picked up a death star trooper and a hoth stormtrooper for 3.50 each. Also got the lego advent cale.ndar for 19.90. They had blu ray packs for 12.50 but all that was left was aotc and tpm. For that price I would have bought the esb set and maybe rotj

mtriv73
01-20-2012, 02:38 PM
TRU in Frederick had the new saga legends figures the other day (I don't even know what the subline is called so you can tell how much I cared.) They also had the "new" vehicle wave at $34 each (pass) and the "new" titanium 3-packs. All that was left of the titaniums was the podracer and droid control ship (again pass.) I really don't know why I even bothered stopping in there except that I was near there and I was bored.

mtriv73
01-22-2012, 02:01 PM
This thread is starting to feel like a one man show. I finally saw TPM wave at Target today and picked up the pod racers, amidala, ani, the naboo soldier, and quilan. Someone got to maul before I got there. The battledroid looked awful and I'm not paying $10 for sidious, quigon, and obi's that I already have.

Major Karr
01-23-2012, 03:56 AM
You seem to be the one with all the luck! I haven't seen anything new since probably late October - in fact the TRU closest to me has had no vintage since September. And it looks like the Hasbro rep forgot all the Targets near me, since they have the same clones and sandtroopers and other pegwarmers from last spring.
It is good to know though that someone out there is finding something.

Not much finding happening yet. Westminster Target put out one Ep. 1 case a couple of weeks ago. Only figs left when I got there were Obi, Qui-Gon, Battled Droid and PadawAni. Obi is still hanging out there along with some Ep 2 pegwarmers from earlier waves. Patiently waiting for the onslaught so I can use those BOGO coupons.

Haven't posted in a long time since there is nothing really out there - no WM droid packs, no Vintage wave 2, etc. But today I found some older things I was missing at the Kingstowne TRU - the Rebel (Hoth) Soldier, Ponda Boba and CW Eeth Koth. They must have found a lost case somewhere. And at the Clinton WM I found a Gammorean Guard, which I left for someone else to get since I had one. Still haven't seen the Rebel Commando variant.

I've about given up on finding anything close to home. I did get the new Naboo starfighter from Past generation toys through amazon.

So Col. Cracken and the Calamari Pilot are at Christiansburg Walmart.. Deleted Scene wave obviously came and went but not much left. I found these a WHILE ago in Newport News but am in Cburg on a work trip.

Is anyone in Virginia finding ANYTHING *NEW*??

I'm really trying hard to find:
CW14 Aayla,
CW13 Rex (new Helmet),
CW 11 Republic Commando Boss..

And also the Vintage Collection...

VC58 Aayla Secura
VC93 Darth Vader
VC28 Rebel Pilot Wedge
VC95 Luke Hoth Outfit
Darth Malgus

A lot of the others in these waves im gonna skip.. unless i find a good deal.
Im concerned Virginia is gonna NEVER see these waves and I'm gonna have to pay the scalper prices. I ORDERED the New Vader to make sure i dont miss him but $20 per figure.. not gonna happen.

Anyone spotting ANYTHING new in VA??

I did find the deleted scenes wave a second time at the Walmart in Grundy, VA a couple weeks ago, but I haven't seen it in Maryland yet.

Retail is going to be neck deep in Vintage Obi wan and qui gon (and the other pegwarmers from wave 1) for a while, so I've given up and am preordering everything from BBTS. The case with Ayala et. al. shipped this week and I just pre-ordered the Tarkin wave which is due out next month.

Nothing in stores still.. In Newport News/Hampton area.. this is getting depressing. My order came in tho. I opened Aayla, Nom, and Luke, Rest are going on ebay cheap as planned. No Malgus tho cause the online stores want $50 for him. I dont like him THAT much. this is a PATHETIC way to have to go about collecting!!! Hasbro has serious issues!!!

So I wandered into Target today and there was a TINY BIT of recent merchandise.. I picked up Clone Wars Aayla Secura and Republic Commando Boss. Left the new (phase 2?) Rex on the shelf. Didnt like the paint application. Looks like he rolled in dirt. And its REX. They'll come out with 4 more variations of him anyhow.
So three whole new figures . ONE box unless someone picked up others before me. Its SOMETHING...

So this isn't so much about what I found today, but what I didn't see. Yesterday I was in a Target and a Walmart and saw the usual pegwarmers (Qui-gon, TPM Obi wan, and a smattering of other figures from the first wave.) Today I went into toys R us and there were absolutely no Qui-Gons. I was in there last week and they could have filled a peg with them. I'm hoping Hasbro is culling these from the shelves (and hopefully replacing them in the upcoming cases it's supposed to be a carry forward in.) Realistically though, since it was only in one store, some parent probably bought them all up to give out as favors at a birthday party. If any of you also see them disapperaing from shelves in the next week or so then we might be in for some better hunting in the near future. I'm anxious to go back to WM and target to see if they have been picked up from there as well.

WM on 26 down to 4 Qui-gons from about 10 last week. Looks like it wasn't Hasbro culling the pegs but at least their gone.

My walmart has at least 20 battle droids.. from several figure lines. i HATE that figure (all versions) Shame the transport isnt out yet so some rich collector would come along and buy them ALL

That would make too much sense. It would be like having a TIE fighter pilot or an AT-AT driver on the pegs at the same time the vehicles are released. Or a naboo fighter at the same time as two pilots are released as store exclusives. Or a Luke to go with his taun-taun. (Okay the horse is dead, I'll stop beating it.) The point is Hasbro seemingly can't coordinate anything the last few years. I don't know if it's poor planning in Rhode Island or poor execution in China or some mixture of the two.

Spent the Last Few Days in Charlotte And Winston-Salem NC.. NOTHING anywhere.. same old phantom menace.. Why does hasbro only give product ti internet companies that charge us $20-$40 per figure??

Naboo starfighter shipped from toy wiz today. I had preordered another from past generation but I don't want to miss this one. I'm pretty sure the way the vehicle line has been handled the last couple of years I'll never see one in stores.

06-18-2012, 03:57 PM
Saw remnants of newer clone wars at Newport News Toys R Us yesterday.. Capt Rex with New Helmet, and Aayla Secura. I had Aayla already and I am not getting this Rex cause he has non-bending knees. But there is some stuff out there.. Still no (non-Phantom Menace) Vintage Collection anywhere in my area.

I saw the new Vintage Darth Vader on the pegs of TRU the other day in Frederick, MD. Stuff is slowly trickling out. The Naboo Starfighter is a huge improvement on the old one. The cockpit is just fantastic and I think it might be a little bigger. The droid slot isn't exactly movie accurate, but you can put whatever droid you want in there (I tried the R2's from the WM exclusive pack.)

Also, I snagged another Malgus and Nom anor on Amazon for $13 each. I'm officially all caught up with everything I want until the Lost cardback wave shows up.

mu5a5hi
06-19-2012, 12:35 PM
I keep seeing malgus for $13 on amazon, but by the time i add to cart he is gone.. Its getting pretty annoying. ;)' I am NOT paying $33 for one figure.

Do you have some sort of a 'tracking' mechanism for when a price on amazon gets lowered?

mu5a5hi
06-19-2012, 01:20 PM
Well i ended up reloading every once in a while and snagged one for $13.. Still.. this hobby is getting really NOT FUN. The thrill of finding stuff in the store is so much better.

mtriv73
06-19-2012, 02:25 PM
I just happened to be on there and searched for Vintage Star Wars and it popped up. Glad you got one as well and I agree that the fun is gone. I miss the thrill of approaching the pegs and seeing a bunch of figures you've never seen before. Now almost all I see are leftovers from TPM wave. If it wasn't for the internet, I would only have figures through the deleted scene wave.

I've now gotten 2 of the new Naboo starfighters. The one that came in yesterday I had ordered a while back (thinking they were in stock) from a seller on Amazon. Since a long time had passed and I wasn't sure that one would ever come in, I ordered another 2 weeks ago that came in last week from a different seller. I had to pay $39 for one of them and $44 for the other, but that still isn't too bad considering the gas I would have wasted looking for them on the shelves around here. It's a fantastic ship. Much better detail than the older one. The cockpit is much improved, it has landing gear now, you can put in your own droid. I just wish it still had electronics, but those days are over in ships this size.

The new 3-packs are trickling in to VA Targets. Specificallyt Williamsburg, for me. I got the one with Snaggletooth. I need another boba like i need a hole in the head.. But I really liked the Snaggletooth when i was a kid. I didn't feel like spending $25 each for both sets so I didn't get the droids, yet.

Any idea how/why they rang up for that? Mine rang up for 'Not in system' and the guy checked and 24.99 was printed on the BOX they came from

I would get the droid set for $15

A lost wavecase hit Northern Va today

Found that wave at one Walmart in Westminster. None of the others I frequent seem to have received it yet. I'm sure it won't be hard to find Jar Jar overstaying his welcome on the pegs.

Glen Burnie Toys R Us had all 12 Lost Wave vintage(both cards) in stock & every one was beat/bent to crap(go figure). They also had the Ewok/Yavin pilot bp's back in stock(10 of each)...shame they didn't have them 9/6 when I had my BOGO rewards coupon. Annapolis has them also but beware...they are charging 4.00(or 8.00 for the set) more than the Glen Burnie or Columbia TRU's???

Has anyone found the TRU speeder bikes locally yet...or the Maul Returns Target BP?

09-10-2012, 08:41 AM
Haven't been to target, but TRU didn't have the speeders last week. It takes them a while to make it east so probably late this week at the earliest.

Just picked them up online though and got the BOGO 1/2 off price which paid for tax and shipping. Limit of 2 per purchase.

Wow, 2 hours later and already sold out (I guess this isn't terribly surprising.) Just got an e-mail saying the ones I ordered this AM are backordered, so I may keep hitting the stores until I get an e-mail saying they shipped.

Got the Maul returns battlepack at a Target in Riverdale, MD (I think that's the name of where I was.) It's somewhere on the other side of the DC beltway from Frederick. Had a lot of them for $19.99. Honestly I bought it for the nightsister, but the other 2 figures look good as well. I already had the armored savage and a realistic version of this Maul from the battlepack with Owen Lars, but since that's the only way top get a nightsister, I pulled the trigger without much thought.

09-13-2012, 01:12 PM
Maul Returns is EVERYWHERE at Target down in Hampton Roads area.

I checked 3 Toys R Us last weekend. and again Tuesday, and no Biker Scouts yet in this area.

I like the Maul set but i wish Hasbro would make sure their figures can STAND UP without assistance (robot legs Maul, I'm looking at you).

Got the Maul BP in Laurel at 19.99. Still no speeder bikes(really wanted 2 on the BOGO deal; I wanted to open one & pose under the AT-ST from WalMart.

Went to TRU yesterday and the very helpful manager looked up the speeder bikes in the computer for me. She said they hadn't even gotten to the main distribution warehouse that serves the DC area yet (1340 were on order for the area.) So a few more days should do it for us.

Seriously wondering what is up with these exclusives in Virginia. It sounds like they are showing up everywhere else. Checked Toys'r'Us yesterday and today, no Speeder bikes. Several different K-marts yesterday and today, no 2 figure sets. Very strange that these seem to be hitting everywhere else. Yesterday i did the drive from Va Tech to Newport News, so the places i checked were roanoke/salem and Newport news. 5 hrs apart. nothing either spot.

If you haven't found the lost line wave, a website called TGF toys has them in stock for 9.99 each, no tax, and free shipping on orders over $50. I still haven't seen these in stores yet (got tehm from BBTS back before celebration VI though.) They also have the obi, qui gon and vader with light up sabers. I picked up one each of the light up saber guys and an extra leia, JarJar, and vader to open. I've ordered from them a couple of times and have gotten great service.

I went to a Toys R Us near my parents today. They had a 50% off sale on vintage figures and to my surprise, they had the ROTJ deleted scene wave there! First time I have ever seen it out in the wild! I picked up Cracken, Leia, Luke, and Lando for 20 bucks. Used my $5 rewards on it a got them for 15!

Great find. Too bad that means the same tru will have all the episode 1 carry forwards rotting there forever. Glad you got the good ones first. I got a marc ecko stormtrooper jacket today. They're having a 24 hour sale and if you use the code oneoff you get an additional discout. I got a $120 jacket for $30.

That doesn't change much around here. My local Target hasn't had any vintage figures on the 6 racks in 6 months. My TRU has had 1 Quinlan Vos on three racks for 8 months.

I got the Red 3 X-wing today at TRU using a 25% off coupon you can download and print. For $45 it was worth it. Now that I have X-wings for Red 5,2, and 3 and a couple really nice big TIE fighters, I really need a completely redone Vader's TIE advanced.
