The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: TRU Exclusive Nikto Guard?

That's cool, I did not know they would do that. Seems like a service they should promote a little more.

I'm still leery of their shipping though...I ordered some stuff from them back in late July and it arrived pretty well beaten up. I had to exchange most of the stuff in the order actually. Apparently they have no knowledge of "bubble wrap" and everything just smashes up together inside the box.

I'm content to wait another week or two and grab this in the store, but then again I live like a mile away so it's no hassle.

Found a mintier Flamethrower Clone at another Target last night, so I was able to swap out that for the R2 I did not need.  ;D

But yet again, I missed Goji. Hmmm, three strikes so far, not a good sign.

Found TCW Wave 3 remnants today as well, at 2 different Targets. No sign of Goji at either one though, and the Flamethrower Clone will have to be an opener as the card is dinged. So I still need MOC versions of those 2 guys.

I did notice that I appear to have $5 Clone cash in both the Ki-Adi and Flamethrower Clone figures I picked up. I could see the small blue paper with "5" in the corner, which I assume is what that is.

At least I can use one of those. Ki-Adi is minty and will remain forever encased within his bubble.

Went back out for another round (1 TRU, 2 Walmarts, 2 Targets) and found R2-D2 (TCW 27) from this wave. I bought him, but after reading the back panel description, which references the movie, I am pretty much convinced this is just a straight re-pack as others have noted.

No matter, I can always swap him out for Goji when I finally find that guy, or another Flame Trooper.

Only a couple of Targets left to hit around here, hoping one will have the rest of what I need so I can call it a weekend. I hate hunting on weekends.

Found a lone TVC ROTS Wave Clone Trooper on the pegs at Target of all places. I'm thinking "return" as I have heard nothing about this wave making it to the shelves there yet.

I went ahead and bought it for the last UPC I need for Boba. Yeehaw.

If anyone wants this thing, minus the UPC, PM me.  ;D

That was me. 

Congrats dude, your post inspired me to resume The Hunt. I found TCW Wave 3 remnants at one of our local Targets this morning - a minty Ki-Adi and a slightly dinged Flamethrower Clone which will become my opener.

No sign of Goji or R2.  :(  But I have at least 5-6 more Targets to hit up before the day is through, so I remain optimistic.

Oh, I also found a lone Clone Trooper from the TVC ROTS wave...weird. Possibly a return? Have not heard of this wave making it to Target yet so I was surprised. I bought him for the hell of it just so I could snag the last remaining UPC I need for my mailaway Boba.

I think one of the Minnesota peeps reported finding this wave at a Target. (!)

Our Targets have not been relevant for weeks now, guess it may be time for another series of runs. Weird that they never even got Wave 2, kinda like how Walmart never got the Aayla/Hondo wave earlier this year.

I'd love that as well, but I'd also love a free Kul Teska figure too. Odd that they haven't run any kind of promo for that dude yet. He is pegwarming big time around here. I love him but would prefer to wait for the price to dip before buying another for openers.

Very nice score!  Not much activity here recently amongst us vintage fans- we must all be broke! 

It's funny, in my case I am down to the last few items so I'm getting a bit choosier, just filling in some bits and pieces, looking for good deals, etc.

Just tonight I picked up some good miscellaneous swag - the vintage Slave 1 ramp (missing from mine) and the 2 Ewok village spit posts (that set is almost complete now too). Also scored another Star Destoyer playset on the cheap because the first one I got had bad stickers. That was all less than $35 total, so not too bad.

I think all I really have left to pick up is 2 replacement trees for my Ewok village, most of the Death Star playset, the seat and ladder for the Ewok wagon, and the AT-AT.

Oh and a vinyl cape jawa, the various DT figures, and orange hair Luke.  ;D

Both local TRU's had the new front TCW display, but neither had the new Nikto Guard.  >:(

I do see he is In Stock now on the website. I'm kind of debating it, the shipping would not be free unless I ordered something else and they don't even have Wave 3 up yet.

Hoping he shows up next week at least.

Have to agree, Wave 2 has already disappeared (and I only ever saw that at Walmart) and no signs of restocking since then, I only see wave 1 and 1.5 now.

I keep hoping my TRU will get Wave 3 in but then I remember they've never even gotten Wave 2 yet, so who knows.

I'm all caught up but only out of insane diligence.

They definitely need to carry more of the recent waves forward as transition fodder.

Whew, thanks - not worthy of adding to The List.

I do love that Palitoy stuff though, definitely aim to pick all that up someday.

Is this any different from the one released originally here in the States?

Looks like the exact same sculpt to me, but maybe I'm missing something?

Saw the blurb about the TRU coupon on the front page, one day too late.

If I take this in, will they do a price adjustment for something purchased the previous day?

I thought I recalled hearing about people doing that, but not sure. Does it work?
