I forgot to mention that Hagerstown TRU has the crappy Endor Gift pack as well. These gift packs could have been awesome, like the Imperial Gift Pack. They have stunk up TRU ever since.

Wow MM, do you still work or just shop all the time? :D

lol Yes, I still work. My new job is in Hagerstown & I go to the mall during my lunch break. Everything but Wal Mart is in the area around mall or in it. So that's why I've been getting so lucky finding figures lately! :greedy:

North Glen Burnie K-Mart got in 2nd wave of Galactic Heroes...but I did not see Yoda/Clonetrooper. South Glen Burnie K-Mart subsequently got in OTC Bespin wave.

Frederick TRU has VOTC Han/Luke. They haven't had a OTC carded fig yet (at least I haven't seen any but I don't get to shop as much as MM :D .) They also had unleashed Bossk and Aayla as well as the crappy Endor 4-pack (remember when those were actually worth buying?)

Glen Burnie Toys R Us had Wave 2 Galactic Heroes as well as OTC Bespin & Dagobah waves. Still haven't seen VOTC C3PO & Lando.

Looks like TRU is having the best sales out there for the basic figus. 2 for $7. That would be a great place to fill in some voids. They also have the OTC X-Wing/Tie Fighter for $12.99!

I actually had to dig on the upper shelf for an X-Wing for my son. Can't beat $12.99 for an X-Wing...even THAT X-Wing for a kid. It was also nice to see moms getting Star Wars stuff for their kids (i.e. children or husbands) while I was out too.

Kidhuman
09-20-2004, 05:12 PM
C-Burg Target had nothing new. Guess they might wait until they stick the movies out tonight or in the A.M. to stock these up. Wish I had some extra cash, I would go at midnight for they toys.

Is anyone else here not getting the movies?

Don't forget, bring your ad in to Wal-mart for price matching. Target doesn't price match and I don't know about K-mart, but Wally world certainly will.

Not only am I getting the movies tomorrow, I'm taking the day off to watch them. I've been in the lab at least 6 days a week for the past couple of months so I can't wait for tomorrow!

Frederick K-Mart appears to have gotten in the Bespin wave, of which only Lobot was left from the Leia/CCP/Lobot trio I was looking for. I'm starting to think I'll never see a CCP in stores at this point. Anyway, Lobot rocks...if anyone was on the fence about getting him, get off and pick him up.

seanmcfripp
09-21-2004, 09:51 AM
Target in Frederick had Lobot, Leia, and CCP, of which I nabbed the Leia and CCP. So get off your duff and get Lobot if you need him. And to think that only yesterday I was whining about never being able to find a CCP. I guess now I can whine about finding a second one.

The DVD set was only $44.99, which seems to lower than what they were advertising.

09-21-2004, 09:58 AM
Hagerstown WM has the New Hope & Empire DVD Figure packs. They look pretty cool & were only $9.96 so I picked them up. The DVD was $44.??, but I ordered mine from Overstock.com for $40.99 using my birthday money :) I wasn't going to buy the DVD right away, but I got some extra cash so I figured why not?!

Anywho, has anyone seen the Jedi DVD figure packs?

mtriv73
09-21-2004, 11:44 AM
Frederick Wal-mart had all 3 dvd packs. I picked up the DVD's, Empire and Jedi 3 packs. I may break down and get the ANH one this week as well. Is the Han in the Empire set a "new" kit bashed figure or is it a reissue? I seem to remember the old one being bulkier.

Found plenty of ESB & ROTJ packs this morning at Potomac Mills, but no ANH. Checked the store in Dumfries and they didn't have any packs at all. Might go back out tonight to hit another WalMart (or two) to see if I can get the ANH pack.

PS. Happy Birthday.

Picked up the ANH figure pack at the Manassas (east side of town) WalMart.

Potomac Mills W-M took down their VOTC/Falcon display and now all the pegs are packed with Obi, Han & a few Leia & Lukes. Doesn't look good for finding 3PO/Lando wave anytime soon.

Pot. Mills Target - nothing new.

Burke Target had the remnants of Cloud City wave along with the new Unleashed.

Kidhuman
09-23-2004, 07:08 AM
Radford Wal-MArt had the 3 packs from ROTJ and ESB. None from ANH.

Kidhuman
09-23-2004, 10:17 AM
Just got back from C-Burg Wal-Mart. They had ANH and ESB 3 packs, but no ROTJ. I went back to Radford Wal-Mart and picked up the ROTJ pack. I htink this one is the best. The others look to cheesy. The leia figure in the ESB pack looks horrid IMO. Didnt care to much for the ANH one either. Dont need another version of 3PO and R2. I htink they should have mixed these up a little better, might of sold more packs. Everyone loves Vader, so that pack is going to go quick, pklus it has an army builder in it.

Stopped by the Target near Pot. Mills during lunch and was suprised to find that they had finally restocked (Bespin wave). After searching for weeks & weeks for the Cloud Car Pilot, which I finally found a week or two ago, they had 5 of them.

Pot.Mills TRU - not much.

P.M WalMart - don't waste your time.

seanmcfripp
09-24-2004, 08:50 AM
Holy cow, did I just get socked in the checkbook! Frederick Target had the ROTJ case of VOTC figures. I scored Boba Fett, Lando, Chewie, R2, and 2 Storm Troopers. It's strange, because I can honestly say our Target never got the ESB VOTC wave. They also put out the old ESB Star Destroyer Wave, so there's a Tanus Spijek on the pegs if anyone still needs him.

The ROTJ VOTC figs are AWSOME! I'm like a little kid at Christmas here at work.

Kidhuman
09-24-2004, 09:43 AM
Nice finds sean. Good to know that the ROTJ wave is starting to hit the area. My Wal-Mart is packed with tons of the ANH wave. Hopefully they will clearance then shortly.

mm74md
09-24-2004, 10:23 AM
Holy cow, did I just get socked in the checkbook!

Thanks for the tip. I was able to pick these up as well at the Hagerstown Target. They do look sweet. They had 1 R2, 1 Lando, 1 Chewy, 2 Fetts & 2 Stormtroopers. I felt guilty taking both Fetts & Stormtroopers, but who knows when I'll see these two again? I will pick up another R2 & Chewy to open if I see them again. I left Lando since I got him last week.

My wife is going to kick my butt :(

seanmcfripp
09-24-2004, 11:12 AM
Same here, but I left one Fett behind. I gotta bad feeling that the Stormtroopers are gonna be snapped real quick as they come out. Boy, did I get lucky.

My wife too, is going to kill me. I don't know how I'm going to talk her into letting me get the Slave I when it comes out.

I hate to ask this question but I just moved to Virginia Beach about a week ago and I don't really feel like reading 178 pages of posts to find the best stores so could someone please fill me in on which stores in my area are the best for finding the newest stuff.

Looks like Target was the place to go today. After waking up late for work I decided to hit the Pot. Mills store before going in. Glad I did. Found the ROTJ VOTC wave (now my favorite wave) plus an ESB Lando, but no 3PO.

Kidhuman
09-24-2004, 08:18 PM
K-Mart was the place for me. Bluefield West Va/Va had a ton of goodies. Picked up the entire ESB wave of VOTC, Yoda and CLone GH and Cantina Wave 1. They had the entire series 2 of GH. Looked like they had just put out wave 2.5 of VOTC as there was only 8 on the pegs, 4 ANH and 4 ESB, so I snagged the ESB. They also had the Dagobah OTC wave and Greedo.

Slicker
09-25-2004, 01:32 PM
Not a bad find at all. If I'm not mistaken isn't Greedo one of the tougher figures to find?

Kidhuman
09-26-2004, 08:38 AM
Dunno about that. I have seen him a plenty.

jobare1
09-26-2004, 09:50 AM
Congrats on the finds KH.

Potomac Mills Target - pretty much wiped out. All the ROTJ VOTC are long gone.

P.M. W-M - just had to look, but pretty much what I figured......nothing

Dale City KMart - only 1 figure on the pegs - VOTC Ben. They did have 5 of the Cantina scene.

As for Greedo, I've seen quite a few of him. I think the hardest one to find is the Cloud Car Pilot. At least for me it was. Handstand Luke would be a close second.

jonthejedi
09-30-2004, 01:48 PM
Columbia Target had OTC Skiff Lando, GeneraL Lando, Gamorrean Guard, Bib Fortuna & ANH Lord Vader. Also had General Madine & Endor Strike Solo, both with bad paint aps. No sign of Slave Leia, Scout trooper or scanning crew dude. Haven't seen any new VOTC past Vader/Yoda. Nothing in Glen Burnie or Laurel to speak of.

Kidhuman
10-01-2004, 12:07 PM
Found Wicket today at C-Burg Wal-Mart. They had a bunch of OTC packed out. TIe Pilots, Bossk, IG-88 and the first bunch. Still no signs of 29-38 though. No new VOTC to speak of either.

jonthejedi
10-01-2004, 03:50 PM

Found OTC Gen. Madine, AT-ST Han & both Landos today at Pot. Mills Target. Only had one of each on the pegs and no sign of any of the others.

As far as the DVD packs, I'll check the Pot. Mills store tomorrow morning on my way to work. It was my understanding that each store was only getting a case of 48 (total between the 3 different packs). I hope I'm wrong.

jonthejedi
10-02-2004, 10:47 AM
Glen Burnie K-Mart had Galactic Wave #3, but no Boba. South WalMart on Crain Hwy. had new OTC wave with Gam. Guard & Bib F.(still some there). Somebody must have cherry picked the scout troopers & slave Leias out of the assortment). Where oh where is all the new VOTC. I'm still short on Lando & C3PO.

jonthejedi
10-03-2004, 10:42 AM
Good news boys...Target SALE started today(10/3)...OTC figures for 3.88; vehicles(no Slave 1) for 15.29; VOTC ringing up 15% off for 8.49@. BAD news: went to 3 Targets & no product in the section. My local Glen Burnie Target did send someone to SW sect. to scan, and (luck be a lady tonight) turned up 1 box of new VOTC. Was able to get Chewie, Stormie, Boba, Lando & R2 for 8.49@. C3PO not in this wave. 1 Boba & Stormie left behind(2 per box). Happy hunting. KH, you have a PM.

Potomac Mills Target had 6 OTC Slave I's today. Kinda like the packaging. No new figures, OTC of VOTC.

Stopped off at Pot. Mills WalMart and was suprised to find a "Sale" price sticker on the pegs listing all OTC figures for $3.88. Anyone else run into this yet? Anyway, they had maybe 2 OTC figs mixed in with a bunch of Saga figs.

Sparky, my wife was able to get in this am when Target opened, and grabbed the VOTC C3PO & OTC scout trooper before the hot wheels scalpers turned the corner. Many thanks for the tipoff. I stopped in today after work around 3 PM...still had 3 OTC scout troopers, VOTC Vader, Yoda & Lando.

Yeah, I spotted them today, and the corners were pretty hammered, so I'll wait, I think. For you AOME collectors...Sparky's aforementioned Super Target in Glen Burnie has new AOME sets, as well as Siege of Pelennor Fields playset with battle troll & orc tower...$50 smackeroos.

Hagerstown Target has 2 VOTC Boba Fetts. I stuck them in with the Halloween candy aisle on the top shelf if anyone cares. I don't need them. They also had 1 VOTC Vader & 1 Lando. I'm still looking for an extra R2 & Chewy from that line to open.

TRU had a cool Vader bank. Other than that, they had squat. I'm really getting annoyed that they aren't getting in any new LOTR stuff.

Sorry, my mistake. I guess whenever I hear C-3PO I instantly get tunnel vision and think VOTC.

Pot. Mills W-M: nothing

10-15-2004, 08:35 PM
Great. Meanwhile, just down the road the Germantown WM has yet to get a single OTC figure in stock except for a Han someone returned 2 months ago. I did find today a red POTF(?) Leia on the pegs for $1.00 there though. Go figure.

jonthejedi
10-16-2004, 07:37 AM
My local WalMarts are choked with overstock of VOTC Luke, Ben, Han & Leia. One did get in 1 box of Bib Fortuna, Pig Guard wave...I'm not sure the Imp. scanning crew guy was in this assortment or not. If he was, he was gone in an instant. Sparky, you can attest to this...our Glen Burnie Toys R Us literally has 2002 figures from the 1st AOTC wave, as well as green carded figs. clogging up the pegs. I've been so tempted to lay into the Hasbro reps when I see them in there...recall this old junk for pete's sakes. I've told the mgr.(who I interviewed with many moons ago when she worked in Annapolis) how much collector's business they're losing to Target & WalMart. They just don't care. They spent all that $$$ putting in those multi-media centers with the DVD's and VHS...and they're nowhere in the price-competitive department. I really feel that's where all their money went.

jonthejedi

The aforementioned Glen Burnie Toys R Us has (x2) new repainted Y-wing. Don't know the price, wasn't marked. Suspect the retail was 29.99. Didn't think much about the paint job(too much silver). Pilot was a lameo like Red Leader version.

THanks for the heads up Jon. Picked mine up today and they were $29.99. Also the Bowie Target had 3 of the Exclusive Slave I's...I picked up one, and there were two left on the top shelf. One was kinda banged up. They retailed for $29.99.

I got my Y-wing from Amazon today. It's about what I expected (the new paint job is a welcome addition but the pilot is crappy.) No new figs to report. Wal-mart on 26 has sold everything but the bespin Leia's which really surprises me. I figured those would be peg warming for a while. Now if I could only find VOTC C3P0 and the scanning trooper...

Same here. :mad:

Potomac Mills WalMart: Still no OTC figs. The only 2 that they have are Han & Spirit OB. 4 full pegs of Saga figs and 4 over-loaded pegs of Luke, Han & Ben VOTC.

P.M. Target: About 4 Lobots and a few of the 1st wave VOTC. Been like this for about 2 weeks.

P.M. TRU: Finally something new......Had 4 or 5 Y-Wings on the shelves. Too bad I don't collect vehicles anymore. They did have 2 VOTC Landos (along with about a dozen Hans).

Dale City K-Mart: No suprise here. The same 2 figs on the pegs and that's it. Haven't seen any figs (OTC or VOTC) new or old, in at least 4 or 5 weeks. They did have about a dozen of the wave 2 Cantinas.

I gave up on wasting gas looking for the VOTC stormtrooper and R2 and ordered them from Amoktime on monday. They arrived yesterday in great condition (I highly reccomend these guys.) I was a little disappointed in the R2 but the Stormtrooper is fantastic. I may buy every one of these I see (if I ever see any at retail.) Does anyone know when Hasbro is shutting off the tap of OTC figures? I know the first follow-ups have already been released, but will they continue to ship OTC until the next movie?

I'm a SW collector in the HR area, I live in Kempsville. Stuff I'm looking for include the new silver Vader, new JEDI FORCE figs from Playskool and the last fig in the OTC asst., fig #38 -Imperial Trooper. LMK what you are still looking for and if I can, I'll try and help you out. I know a few other collectors in the area that we kind of look out for each other. Talk to you soon.

Target on Military had the entire Jedi Force line a week ago. I picked up the droids, but left the rest. They had also finally restocked the pegs with Bespin Leia, Madine and Han Disguise.

TRU on Military is slim pickens unless you are looking for Galactic heros - well stocked there. If you want a VOTC Han it's the place to be.

Looking for the relatively new OTC - also any wave of VOTC beyond the first.

Sorry - typo - I am in SE VA and rarely venture too far from home. Used to travel for work and got to NOVA every once in a while. Even made it to your neck of the woods a few times.

If you ever venture as far as Williamsburg there is a Target there that never seems to fail. Three trips and much $$ later I had a falcon, slave leia unleashed, VOTC wave 1 and some OTC. That was when there was nothing in Hampton Roads.

Paying attention to the other VA thread. Thanks for the heads up.

Kinda glad I'm not the only one having problems finding the last of the OTC and the VOTC 3PO. As far as the OTC figs, only need both Vaders, Gamorrean Guard, Bib Fortuna and of course the Scanner dude and now the Silver Vader.

Dale City K-Mart - After almost 2 months the finally get in some OTC figs. Too bad they were the Bespin wave.

Pot. Mills TRU - Nothing new as far as OTC or the Silver Vader. As far as VOTC - 3 Landos, 2 Vaders and a single Boba along with the standard dozen or so Solos.

Jobare, If your out there again and pick up a couple of cloud car pilots I would greatly appreciate it, and pay you back, and pay for shipping, and find someone to give you a well deserved massage. Okay maybe not the last one. If I find anything in the last 15 or so of OTC I'm going to buy it and post it for trading here. If others would do the same thing we may be able to help each other out. (I'm looking for more ROTJ VOTC for you KH)

On a lighter note, after 3+ months of no figures despite having my credit card charged in full, I finally got my order for VOTC figures cancelled with Kebco. I thought I was through with them forever. Naturally, now that the order is cancelled, they start sending me figures (it was a "mistake" by their shipping deaprtment) and expect me to go stand in line at the post office to send them back or have my credit card charged for the figures. Also, the figures arrived in horrible condition (probably UPS's fault but the packing could have been better.) I'm a big fan of Amoktime.com and EE, but if you are considering pre-ordering figures online then I would think twice about ordering from Kebco.

Suncoast and Target have been great to me the last few weeks. I was finally able to get my doubles of VOTC R2, C3PO, & Chewy at Target this morning. They had all the VOTC in stock except for Leia, Lando, & Luke. Still no Slave 1 sightings.

Suncoast has been beating Atomic Comics in the new Gentle Giant releases (got two Stormtroopers there) as well as ALL the stores for new figures.

Unfortunately for me I didn't go to the mall this weekend to cash in on the entire Imperial Scanner wave. I was lucky enough to find an Imperial Scanner on the pegs. He isn't in perfect shape, but I'm not that picky. Plus I got him for only $2 with my Replay rewards.

I usually visit Suncoast during the week. The manager told me he got case 11.5 in on Saturday & everything (except scanner dude) was gone by close Sunday.

So if you are willing to spend $2 more on your figs, check out Suncoast.

I loved it. A chill ran down my spine when I heard Vader. Dying to see Sidious in action. Anyone, who has seen it, notice the Royal Guards lying on the floor of Palpatines office when Yoda enters? You see the first one to the left of Yoda as he enters, then when Yoda ignites his lightsaber you see the 2nd one to the right of him.

Finally found something new, Potomac Mills TRU finally put the silver Vaders on the pegs. Grabbed 2. They also had ROTJ VOTC.

Pot. Mills WalMart - what a waste. 3 pegs that are overstuffed with VOTC Luke, Obi-Wan & Hans. I think they had 1 OTC fig and the rest were Saga.

Dale City K-Mart: the same two VOTC figs (Ben & Solo) & 2 OTC figs (Bespin Leia & Lobot).

I only need the scanning crew guy at this point(he resides in my Falcon carry case), but it'll be nice to see him in the OTC packaging.

Plus, I'd totally miss the daily ritual of checking my trusty "VA/DC/MD Finds" thread a few times a day. Don't leave guys...let's stay here!

Oh, and nothing new to report. Wait, I take that back. Frederick Target put out some old Saga figs on Friday. Don't everybody rush out at once, but they have the younglings/Yoda packs and Barriss Offees clogging the pegs now.

Thanks Jon, but as of Dec.1, I was informed that I wasn't allowed to buy any more figs until after Christmas. So I've got the feeling that my fiance has ordered the figures I need. I still go out "looking" to see what's in the area. I really appreciate the thought.

Potomac Mills TRU: nothing.

P.M. WalMart: choking on VOTC figs (and not even newer ones). 3 pegs full of Solo, Kenobi and Luke. Not a single OTC.

P.M. Target: some of the newer VOTC figs (including 1 3PO) but still overloaded with the HOF figs and the Generals wave.

I have to agree with you - especially about TRU. My local store hase two pegs of POTJ zuttons in addition to AOTC (3-4 pegs) and Han VOTC (2 pegs). Not one single OTC card in the mix.

I guess that means in two weeks another one will appear. The Potomac Yard Target has many Hoth Vaders, several Gamos and some Bibs. Nothing else new anywhere I usually check. I might move over to the WOTC roleplaying stuff. They remind me of that micro series I had a long time ago. Besides, for the price of 2 regular figures you get 7 small ones. Only downside is you don't know till you open the box.

Wait, the TRU at Kingstowne had the 3rd Jedi Council scene. Sorry about the brain lapse.

As a 31 year old I'm embarassed to admit this, but my Mom picked up Hoth Vader and Bib Fortuna at the Wal-Mart in Hagerstown for me yesterday. (I can't believe I have family members looking for figures now.) I haven't seen anything new in Frederick since I picked up Yarua et al. a few weeks ago. If I ever find a Gam. Guard and a Pablo Jill I'll be done (till the cantina figs come out at least.)

Has anyone gotten their Holiday Jawa sets from EE yet? Their site says mine shipped on 11/29, but I haven't seen them yet. Since they shipped it regular mail it doesn't surprise me it's taking a while to come from CA, but I figured 2 weeks would be plenty of time.

I went to Hagerstown TRU on my lunch break yesterday mainly because I saw this post. They had the Cantina wave there. Well, they had the Cantina figures, but no Sandtrooper which is all I want at this moment :eek: . Actually, there were no Sandtroopers, Stormtroopers, or Biker Scouts. It must have been cleaned out by the same butt-munch who took all the Jedi Force figures on Monday from the same TRU :mad: .

Because I bought the ROTK theatrical cut DVD, there's also a $10 rebate. How can you miss at 39.99!!! Sorry you didn't score the sandtrooper(I understand he's the short-packed figure).

Aceguide, I read your post in the other VA section, and I just don't get what's going on with Target either. I found almost all my OTC there, but lately the SW sections have hardly been restocked at all, even when they had their sale. It shocks me to no end that Toys R Us had the POTC & Cantina waves first, after I blasted them for having nothing but 2year old AOTC figs. warming the pegs. WalMart also has been dormant, basic figure wise, and yet they skipped several steps ahead to be the 1st store with new Clone Wars animated figures. Who knew?
