K-mart in Frederick has a bunch of the Pablo-Jill wave as well as the newer cantina 3-pack. Still no sign of Cantina aliens or sandtrooper in Frederick. TRU has nothing, Target has the same 5 figures they've had for weeks, and the newer Wal-mart had no basic figs as of yesterday.

besides the new cw animated figures are there any more figures planed after the cantina wave before the ep 3 figs come out?

I think just the EP III Sneak Peak figures in Feb/March.

After months of these two Targets being behind, today they were caught up. Springfield and Potomac Yard have Coruscant wave in droves, Playskool x-wing and speeder, and Clone Wars. Cant remember what exactly is new - Grevious (pretty sure is new), Durge, Asajii, Mace, Tanktop Ani, Arc Trooper, as well as red and blue clones. No sign of the yellow ? or green ? one.
Have to do some research to see what is new and what is a rehash.
Potomac Yard Target had no sign of the 8+ Slave 1's they had not on sale on Sunday.

Also, just in time for summer, Potomac Yard has a ANH "Slip and Slide" featuring a Death Star Battle scene for 9.99

Found Gentle Giant Bust Ups Series 2 and C-3PO Mini Busts at the Hagerstown Suncoast. 3PO was only $39.99! Happy to see that after online pre orders were $40 or more. They had 1 3PO bust left & a few Bust Ups left. I got lucky got picked out both Vader variants :)

Rafdord Wally World cleaned out the SWfigs and CBurg too. ALl they had left were Ig-88's and Scnning Crew and Bespin waves. They finally moved the AckMeds too. Glory days until they restock.

Hagerstown Wal Mart had the CW Series III in this morning. I wanted to get the new Ani & Greivous for my son, but a guy in his late 40's/early 50's was piling them into a cart. All except for Mace Windu! This mad me just a little mad.

Since I'm a good Christian boy, I asked for one of the Anakins & Grevious politely. He ignored me. I followed him into electronics and asked him again. I think he was the devil 'cause I've never seen such evil eyes before. I left it at that & went rummaging through the toy aisle and found a banged up Grevious & Red ARC trooper. I snagged the Grevious and left the ARC along with the Master Windus. They were on a peg that read $4.77 but rang up at $5 something. I was in a hurry & in a self checkout so I didn't bother complaining about the difference. Just watch out for the prices.

I hope you all have better luck at your Wal Marts with these!

You should of snagged them out of his cart and ran. Technically thye are not his yet and up for grabs since he didnt pay for them yet.

Sorry to hear about that, mm74md. But I have to agree with KH. Snatch & run. :)

Got back last night after spending a week up in NY with the future in-laws. Did manage to hit 5 W-M's up there, but it's the same story up there as it is here. Most stores didn't have anything except for a few barge Lando's and the few stores that did have something only had Imp. Troopers, Lobots and more Lando's.

Hope everyone has a safe and joyous New Year.

Found the Cantina Wave this morning including Sadtrooper. Left about 3 sets at C-Burg Wal-Mart minus the Sandtrooper. Also grabbed 2 OTV Stormies andthe Biker Svout. and the Jawa/Tusken GH set. They had the newer waves also, except Luke and Gam Guard.

Edit: They did not change the tags so I got them for 4.77 each.

Slicker
01-03-2005, 03:57 PM
Damn you and you're good deal getting KH. When I was in MI I had to shell out $7 a pop for the Cantina figs and 3 additional POTC figs that I STILL don't have as OTC figs. Those being Hoth Chewie, Han Cantina, and Luke Dagobah. Bah!!!

Hit the WM in my area and the basic OTC figs rang up $3 and the VOTC rang up $7. Sorry if it's old news, but I did pick up 3 scout troopers, 2 scanning troops and another CCP. Also scored 2 VOTC stormies, Boba and Lando.

Clearence is fun!

Some local reports for those listening:

Target/Military - rerelease unleashed, POTC wave, new playskool speeder and x-wing, Cantina Lego for $20
Traget/Chesapeake - Nada

TRU/Military - Many Playskool speeders - in the little kids section..., Hailfire lego for $20

Big WM sale on Military as well - $3 for basic and $7 for VOTC

Ironically, I scored all the new CW Cartoon Network figures(including the red & yellow clone troopers) at the very LAST stop I almost didn't make...Glen Burnie Chesapeake Ctr. WalMart off Ritchie Hwy. It was nearing 3 PM, and I knew their reset hadn't even begun, but what the heck...and surenuff the whole box was there which says they are putting 'em out later in the day to ward off collectors & scalpers. On a sidenote, The Columbia Greatland Target had good stock earlier today on all 8 new POTC figs.,(Cantina aliens too). The only repack ones I saw in abundance was Vader...no scout, storm, or sandtroopers. Happy hunting! Most Targets in the area have their reset configurations done, the tags up, but NO product.

PA Target and Walmart have started resetting their toy aisles, yesterday Target had most of the Clone War Animated figs of which I picked up for fellow collectors, Pablo Jill wave aplenty, Jedi Force X-Wing and Speeder Bike. Walmart also had animated figs but with bent/creased cards, left those for the openers, these were only $5.55 as opposed to $6.99 pricetag at Target. Had a pretty good week, work brought me alittle north of home and I was able to catch my collection up to latest stuff, finding all Clone War figs including all Clone Trooper variants and scoring the new Tatooine wave of Galactic Heroes! I also found the rehashed 2005 Luke and Vader( #'s 9 & 10), didn't think they rereleaseed these yet. I've noticed that most area stores are getting new stuff each week so keep your eyes open and Happy Hunting!!!

I found the three cantina figures at WM in Frederick today. They only had one of each and no sandtrooper,stormtrooper, or scout trooper. (Looks like someone got there before me.) They also had a case of The Senate wave along with one Pablo Jill. Figs rang up $5.88. If I ever find a sandtrooper I'll be caught up until the preview figs.

First Colonial Target had I think 4 figs total

Radfor Wal-Mart: Packed out the last wave of OTC, and they are on clearance to boot. Picked up DSC Vader(again) just for the background. They had Gam's, Bib's, Slave LEia all for three bucks. They also had the Cantina wave and some biker scouts.

ALso had the new CW. I didnt like tham at all. I thought about grabbing the clones, but I didnt like the faces on them. They dont jive with the regular ones. Grievous looked like a half a moron.

I just picked up the pit of Carkoon 4-pack, Jedi Council Scene I, and Jedi Warriors 4-pack for $7.98 each at amazon.com. Shipping was only an additional $6.

aceguide
01-12-2005, 09:43 AM
Most everywhere I have been has been little to nothing. A lot of POTC on the pegs.

I have to admit - I am not in dire need of much that still has the potential of being at a store (Eph.mon/McQuarrie Stormie :frus: ) so I am looking out for deals and army builders. Guess the pennies are being pinched for the EPIII stuff too...

Slicker
01-12-2005, 02:57 PM
It's really disappointing. I still need about 20 OTC figs and now I'm not seeing any on the pegs.

As for the Ephant Mon and Concept Stormie. I finally got Ephant about 2 or 3 months ago and I went home last month and finally saw the fig and my jaw dropped. That thing is friggin' huge and ungodly heavy. As for the Concept Stormie I'm in the process of buying one off of Turbowars right now.

If you want those figs put something in your signature that's what I did and it worked.

aceguide
01-13-2005, 09:13 AM

Titanium series on CLearance at Wal-Mart. 3 bucks each

jonthejedi
01-14-2005, 05:17 AM
My best buy of the last 12 mos. had to be yesterday at Laurel Target. They had a Falcon on clearance for 12.48. Box had been opened & retaped shut. It looked like the packing cardboard & plastic(Did it come in a big plastic bag this time?) was gone...but all the accessories(ramp & Legs, radar dish, etc.) & sticker/instruction sheet were all there. I didn't buy this before 'cause I didn't have the $50. My son is overjoyed...he played with it from 3:30 to 7 PM nonstop. The back thruster lightup feature is wicked, and long overdue.

Kidhuman
01-14-2005, 09:40 AM
I had the same issue in Target yesterday John, except it wsa 23.48. I asked them to mark it down more because it was opened and rummaged through but they wouldnt. I left it there.

This morning I go into Wal-Mart and get the Lego Flacon for 55 bucks. I stuck it on Lay-a-way. In a few weeks it should be down to 30 bucks and then I will pick it up.

Wal-Mart in Radford had the regular Falcon for 25 bucks and a bunch of CW animated.

Kidhuman
01-21-2005, 09:03 AM
I picked up the OTC Falcon on clearance for 15 bucks yesterday for my stepson. I might get one for me today. It is pretty cool. The only down side is the back area is a little too small for a playset.(or am I just bigger now and it doesnt seem as big as the vintage one???)


Edit: Went back and got mine today for 15 bucks also. Only had a few left at Radford Wal-Mart.

Just picked up the full preview wave at the Chesapeake Wal Mart on Battlefield. Had plenty left. HH

Just a brief review - these figures are very nice. I have to say that I like the packaging as well - not nearly as bulky as it looked on photos. Grievous and WW are very nice out of the package - although don't expect the WW helmut to stay on...

Finally a very big day for me.

Lynnhaven WM - 3 of the 4 Preview Figs. (no R4)
New TIE Fighter with light up saber Vader
EpIII Vulture Droid and Ani's Starfighter
Lego set

Lynnhaven TRU - No big deal but I finally used my $20 gift
card and bought the OTC TIE Fighter

First Colonial Target - 4 of the Clone Wars Figs.

I absolutely love the new card. I was one of the many that said it sucked in a couple of posts but you really have to see it to love it. The only bad thing is that the bubble is literally taped to the card backing on the bottom of the bubble.

Major Karr
01-23-2005, 05:16 PM
As of 4.30 today the Springfield WM still had lots of all of them except for the R4. For some reason, I got the last mint one and the last two are a bit ripped.

01-24-2005, 08:20 AM
Hey Jon, If you know where the target is this wal-mart really isnt to far. Go up towards best buy and when you see white marsh mall make a left. Then keep going straight then make a right which will basically be where the whole mall parking lot ends. Go straight up that road and make your first left then keep going on that road and youll see wal-mart its on a big hill. Good Luck to ya!

jonthejedi
01-24-2005, 03:29 PM
Many thanks, blank! I was able to get all but Tion Medon. There were maybe less than 10 in the actual SW section, but nowhere else. I think from talking to one of the dept. people, they pulled the bulk off the floor(cause of the Feb 1 street date) but forget to check the reg. section, so I got lucky. I'll track down the 4th by next week. Packaging is ok(smaller eliptically than I imagined from the prototypes), but not crazy about all that tape on the back(like Battlefront scout trooper). I wonder if the basic figure assortment coming in April is the same?

Thanks for the heads-up Major Karr. I went up to the W-M in Springfield this evening and managed to get 3 of the 4 figures. Of course the only one missing was R4. They still had approx. 10-12 WW's, 10-12 Grievous and about 4 or 5 Tion's.

Funny you mention that, JB. I thought the very same about yourself. The last I heard from you, you had some health issues (family related?) and you were considering ridding yourself of your collection.

Welp ...I am still here ...still collecting. And life is just ducky. One of the reasons I haven't posted in quite some time is because during one of SirSteve's redesigns, the programming changes on the site didn't allow Apple Macintosh users (like myself) the ability to reply / type / comment in the forums. When some things are broke, you tend to forget about them - that's what happened to me and this site.

Also, I subscribe to Kebcotoys "One of Every Figure" Club. I am undecided whether I like their 'service'. It appears I have major holes in my collection ...and this has begun to bother me - being I am a completest collector.

Here is my collection to date, follow the link and it will download a PDF to your hard drive:

TRU in Frederick had the two new LEGO TIE fighter and Jedi Starfighter sets. Also a few VOTC Threepios, along with other figures from that case.

BTW, the Jedi starfighter rocks! Not too crazy about the peachy color for the mini figs though. Oh, and I gave the Darth Vader light-up saber from the TIE set a bench test using the "Try Me" feature. I dunno, but it seems pretty darned cool. That sucker is bright!

The Big Sloppy and MM74MD,

If you're both still on board I'll order the clone trooper mega pack. It should be just over $100 each (I have no idea what shipping will be but I doubt it's more than 10-15). When they come in we can either meet up and divy then out or I can send then to you. (Luckily Frederick isn't that far from DC or Smithsburg.) Either PM me or just post and let me know.

On another note, Target was sold out of Preview figs (except for 3 wookies) this afternoon. Wal-mart never put them out here (I checked both) and TRU didn't have them either. I'm annoyed. I want my new astromech! Oh well, I'm sure I'll find them within a week or so. Has anyone seen the non-lego version of Anakin's fighter?

Well, yesterday (the "Official Release Date") was a big disappointment. Hit Potomac Mills WalMart, Target & TRU and found nothing. Stopped by P.M. W-M this morning before going in to work and they had just put out a case of the Preview figs. Only needed R4 so I grabbed him. Target still doesn't have anything.

Sloppy, just looked at your collection and I'll see what I can do about the holes in your collection. I must've seen at least 4 blue troopers over the past 2 weeks, but I decided not to collect the animated series. Now I know better.

All right guys they're ordered! The total with shipping (I went with the cheapest way) is $325.49. so that's 108.49 each. They haven't charged me yet, so save your money until they come in.

Well, I went to pick up the VOTC figures I had on lay-a-way at WM today. That was about 90 bucks. When she inputted it, it automatically took the clearance price and I paid 27 bucks for all nine. Also picked up the Dagobah Lego for 20 bucks.

No, they next figs are due out 4/2. The next release though is Anakins Star Fighter.

Ugh! I was in there 5 hours before that and they didn't have any. Who would have thought they would stock early on Sunday night?

I saw the UPC price sticker on the shelf, so I talked one of the employees into scanning it to see if any were in the back. They had a case, so I took one and he put the other five out for sale. The trick to getting the employees to go to the back is to get someone who doesn't work in the toy deptartment. This guy was working in housewares, so I don't think he knew about the whole anti-scalper policy (where they don't bring out cases from the stock room).

By the way, I got him to manually punch in the UPC (which I had written down) for ROTS Collection 1 Obi-wan and ROTS Collection 2 Battle Droid. They were both in the computer, but not in stock. But get this: the price came up $5.99. Not sure if that's news to anyone, but it made me happy. Heck of a lot better than $6.99.

I think I bought the only ones they had, although there might be 1 more of Obi's SF. I was not planning on buying any vehicles, but I saw them and caved. Had to have ANY new ROTS stuff.
Also, all the Targets I went to have started to clearance out anything non-ROTs, but including the Sneak figures and CW for $4.88.
The TRU at Bailey's Xroads had about 8 of the Darth Tater, kind of hidden on the right side.

1x.................#24 Mon Mothma

I will try to take some pics later today. I read a comment on another thread about anyone finding ROTS figs are liars.

PS - I think that the toy dept. employees finally figured out that they're not allowed to put the figs out until Apr.2. When I asked about any new SW figs in the back, I was told, "Not until April 2nd."

I will try to take some pics later today. I read a comment on another thread about anyone finding ROTS figs are liars.
That person would've been me and if you looked I accompanied it with a ";)" which in internet lingo means just kidding or "J/K". I was playing around because I'm upset that I haven't found any yet.

Yes, I'm well aware of what ;) means, as well as "J/K". It was all meant to be in good fun. If I was upset about it I would've mentioned a name to go along with the quote. Sorry if you took it the wrong way.

Glad for your finds, Sparky! No, I haven't really looked into Midnight Madness anywhere. My whole family's been laid low by the stomach flu, and we've been home taking turns worshipping at the porcelain altar. Not too concerned about finding ROTS...I feel in a coupla weeks, we'll all have 20-40 assorted, anyway...especially with the street date violations. I'm waiting till May to buy the PS2 game and the books. I don't want any spoilers this time around.

Hagerstown Target is annoying. I went in today and the only pegs for Star Wars are now Jedi Force. Everything else is gone and the person in toys said they won't be putting anything out until 4/2. They are resetting everything for SW on 4/1 so there is no chance of finding stuff early there :dis:

To top off my disappointing lunch break, I picked up my Incredibles from the Disney Store only to see that the chick gave me the Fullscreen version when I pulled into work. I didn't even bother checking until then. Now I have to go back to the darn mall :mad:

Slicker's on the hunt for me, you might want to PM him. He's seen them around a lot.

The Stormtrooper is nice. I haven't opened up Aurra Sing yet. Not sure if I like it, but I got it at the Frederick Target on clearance so I figured what they heck. My nephew loves her so it might be a birthday gift for him if I can keep from opening it until September. :stupid:

On another note, I went to Hagerstown Wal Mart today and they had those ads over the security tower things at the exits with Vader & Yoda on it saying "Join us on April 2nd & 3rd"...blah blah blah. Looks like they might have some stuff for the kids that weekend along with the toys.

Not much found in the area except what everyone else is seeing, ROTS Galactic Heroes sets, Grievous's wheel bike, and Obi-Wan's Starfighter.

Fortunately for me my job has me traveling out of state occasionally, this week while in Delaware I found a few ROTS figs, 8 total, including:Chewie, 2 different Obi-Wan's and Anakin's, Tarful, R2, and Yoda. Also found some ROTS PEZ dispensers!!!R2 for my daughter, Vader, Grievous, Emperor, and Boba or is it Jango,c an't really tell...

Ohh, also found the Darth Tater at Military TRU last week.

Happy Huntin' folks, Anyone locally going out at MIDNIGHT on April 2nd? I'm going out with Wampa88, we'll probably hit a few Wally Worlds, no word if TRU is doing the midnight thing...be nice to meet other area collectors!

I don't think anyone has received a definitive answer. The only confirmed store to have it is the NYC Times Square store. I'll try to pry it out of the TRU guys tomorrow.

Off topic, but I found Batman Begins figures this morning at the Hagerstown Wal Mart. It seems to be a situation like ROTS figures. They didn't have any price sticker on the shelves and didn't ring up at the price checker & said "See Associate". I did and I eventually got them for $6.72 each. I'm not sure if these were supposed to be on the shelf yet or not either.

Also, I did confirm the tent event at Hagerstown Wal Mart. The manager didn't read the memo on the specifics, but he said that they were definitely having the event.

OKay, Holo Yoda is a TRU exclusive for MM. You have tospend 30-35 dollars to get him. T

Lava Vader, you have otget a ticket before opening in order tobe assured one. It is 5.99 or 6.99.

Also found the Legos today at CB WM. The dude sais he couldnt sell tome because they are saving them for the Tent Sale. They said they will have stuff out at Midnight though.

Also at Radford WM, they had the E3 mini puzzels. I grabbed the Grievous and Vader. Brought them ot the register and they wouldnt ring up. SHould have stuffed them inmy pockets......

Also FOund the Food Promos..Apple Jacks, Lightsaber spoon and Cheez-it DV poster offer. 2 upc's plus 2.99 and get a free DV poster. Found these in WM.

Lynnhaven TRU-Same old junk but they had lots of different ROTS candy including the twirling Lollipops, M&M's with different ROTS character toppers (they had GG, Chewie, and R2) and a candy called crazy hair. I'm assuming the crazy hair is a candy that you push up and a jelly-like glob of sugar pops up in the form of hair.

North Glen Burnie WalMart(Chesapeake Ctr.) had ROTS lightsabers with "Force" vibration, color-change blades, etc. As for the Toys R Us Holo Yoda...it makes perfect marketing sense to wait till 4/10. No one needs incentive to buy new ROTS merchandise on street date...collectors, kids & scalpers alike will be lined up to drop major $$$. A week later, when it dies down, it forces more spending that otherwise wouldn't be there. But since we're all getting conflicting info anyway, who knows!!!???

I'm not looking to score all 40 figures April 2nd...I simply don't have the funds(and with CIII coming up rapidly). The figures I want the most are Grievous's magnaguard(who's appearance I loved in the CW cartoon, any new aliens & droids(I'll wait on the core characters cause I'm Anakin'ed & Obi'd out at this point)...and of course any new clonetroopers(me & the rest of the collecting/army building world!!!)

A few things from my pre-work shopping. I'll start with Wal Mart

Had to pick up a few things from Wal Mart this morning and saw a lot of managment in the toy section. I asked about the tent event. Apparently, the City of Hagerstown has some fire code against stores having tents on their parking lots. So they are scheming a way to configure the store for the event. They are still having the 48 hours of the Force or whatever it's called, just not outside. This sounds better to me anyway. They are meeting with the "outside vendor" who is running the event (Hasbro?) today and will give me more details of characters, activites, etc tomorrow or Friday if I come back.

Then, for the heck of it, I went to Kmart. And to my surprise I found TONS off ROTS figures on the shelf :sur: . I took a few to the price scanner and they rang up at $6.99. I then got a cart & filled it up! I get to the register only to be DENIED!!!! :mad: She said she'd hold them until Saturday. I told the lady & then the manager that if you won't take my $74 today, don't expect me to return on Saturday. I was just so annoyed. :dis:

Since I saw these in person it looks like I'll be getting more than the 12 or so I wanted in the first place!

I was lucky enough to score the 12" Anakin/Vader Ultimate Villain set at the Laurel Toys R Us(I was working next door at the Giant). It was right in the SW section(3 or 4 left) along with new AttackTix line. The Ult. villain set rang in at a whopping 44.97 plus tax...but nothing came up to stop the transaction so I got it. On a side note...is anyone in the tri-state getting as annoyed as me over this retailer(on/off/on/off, MM, 32-48 hours, tent/no tent/ Holo Yoda's avail. 4/10...no, wait...we'll scalp it to you early and charge you 9.99 because our company's in trouble) confusion???!!!What is the friggin' deal with these people? This is turning into too much logistics...almost as confusing as the OfficialPix/C2 treatment of the autograph lines at CIII...which by the way...just 7 autographs that I want will end up costing $165.

Just wanted to drop a quick note wishing everyone going out tomorrow night (for MM) good luck and have a safe evening. Hopefully everyone will get what they need/want.

I think I'll hit a couple of WalMarts and maybe a TRU tomorrow night, then get up a little early Sat. morning & head on over to Target to get the excl. Vader.

Been hearing reports that say only the first 32 figs are gonna be available Apr.2 & other reports saying that the first 40 will be out. Anyone know?

Originally it was 24, then 32, then 40. SOme people have found up to 40. Thats because only the original 24 have the do not sell date on them and stores just put them out. The only way to know for sure is to get to the store and see.

According to Rebelscum.com...the Holo Yoda is once again off until 4/10(unless you're at Times Sq., NYC). Everyone be safe tonight & tomorrow...no fist-fighting with scalpers in attendance(we know they DON'T mean well). Hope everyone finds at least 1 new clonetrooper for their collection...remember your neighbor!
