OMG! I found something NEW at Walmart!
« on: June 6, 2003, 01:47 AM »
Yep, I was at a Walmart today on a lunchbreak on a business trip, and ran back to the toy section, and to my surprise I saw a BLONDE Imperial Officer and Barriss Offee.  I nabbed the Imperial Officer, and then decided to check out the MOTU figures and next to them on the shelf face down was...

...a RED BATTLE DROID! :D

Wheeeeeeee!!!

Too bad someone beat me to the new Yoda and the Jedi kiddos, but this is definitely better than 95% of my recent toy runs.

I know a few reports have trickled in on these being spotted at Target stores, but anyone else seen them at Walmart too?

 :P

My Walmart got a case of this wave in finally but for carded collectors they wouldn't be too happy. The case looked like it had been ran over with a semi twice. But I did manage to get a Ashla Jempa opener.  ;D
I remember my dream now.

Congratulations on an awesome score Chewie!  There hasn't been squat of anything new anywhere by me.  I've heard rumors there are some stores that have newer figures in my area, but I'm not driving an hour or more just to get them.  It's not worth it anymore.  I just let Kebco Toys do all the work for me.  :)

And yes, I am VERY jealous of you too!   ;)

My local Wally World just put up a "new" case of Padme DFC, SP-4&JN66, Blonde Imp, Yoda, and the like. I thought we were soppesed to be seeing actually new figures? Not new shipments of old figures. ???

I'd rather be seeing the absolute latest figures too, but those are still considered new in a sense because most stores still haven't even put those out yet.

Grass is always greener.  Last "new" fig I saw was the Maul fig (#42 or so) and Tatooine Attack Anakin ::)  All of one case.  Canuckian Walmarts are reporting no new figures until August.   :o

Hey you big walking carpet!  Did you open the RBD?

If so, how's the quality?  I've heard bad stuff so far...


That wasn't a bad toy run at any rate, to supplement your online cases.

Did you or anyone else receive Wave 13 (Wat Tambor, Coleman Trebor, Broccoli Padme) from New Force yet?

 :D

Wal-Marts in Indy has Jango Pilot, Padme Pilot, Destroyer Droid, CLone Pilot, Obi-Wan, and Dooku (Tyranus).
Nothing really new except for the one case of Han and Chewie that was found not too long ago. I hope my Wallyworlds stock soon.
For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com
