AOTC in Reading, PA!!!!!!
Hey everybody!!! The K-Mart on Route 222 in Reading, PA (right across the street from Boscov's) has AOTC merchandise on the shelves. Most of it was on pallets, so I took the boxes off and opened them when no one was looking. Slave I and the Jedi Starfighter were already on the shelves and marked. They scanned right through without a problem.
Slave I - $29.99
Jedi Starfighter - $22.99
Dooku/Anakin sabers - $22.99 each
Deluxe figures - $10.99 each
UPDATE!! - C1 & C2 FIGURES IN READING!!!
Last night (4/17), I was back at K-Mart on Route 222, and they have the figures on the shelves and about five cases on the top of the shelves. Most of the figures are the early ones (Anakin, Obi-Wan, Padme, etc.) but some of the cases did have the Geonosian Warrior and Dexter Jettster. Alas, no Count Dooku, Clonetrooper, Taun We, etc.
They run $6.99 each, and the Obi-Wan and Jango Fett figures I bought do have the background cards in them just in case you're looking for them.
They also put merchandise on an endcap which includes all 4 deluxe figures, Slave 1, the Jedi Starfighter, and both Anakin and Dooku's lightsabers. Also, they had the 12 inch figures for $19.99 (2 Obi-Wans, 2 Anakins, and 1 Clonetrooper).
Just as an ironic point, there was a middle-age woman there tearing open the cases with me and really, really excited that K-Mart put them out because her husband was a huge fan and collector. She grabbed a handful of figures and said she was bringing her husband back later. Now, what is the point of this story you may ask...?
....she's the STORE MANAGER OF THE WAL-MART IN WHITEHALL, PA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How ironic is that?!?!??! Wal-Mart's electronic lock-out is forcing even their STORE MANAGERS to buy figures early at K-MART!!!!!!!!
And she wasn't lying either b/c she knew one of my old managers from my Wal-Mart days in Wilkes-Barre that transferred down to her store as co-manager. So she really was the manager. Ironic eh? :crazed:
