Am I reading this right that it's TRU where people are finding them?

Yep. TRU seems to be the only retail right now.

Yes, I called all the Walmarts and Targets in my area last night and none of them even had any new figures in stock, much less on the pegs. I don't expect they will be getting them anytime soon either.

At this point, given what is going on around the country, I think Hasbro should draft a letter to TRU telling them to just go ahead and sell the damn things. There's no point in having a street date if half the stores are going to ignore them anyway. All that does is piss people off that aren't fortunate enough to live someplace where the TRU staff doesn't care.

It was a good idea in theory, what with SDCC and C5 around the corner, but in practice, pretty much a failure and it's time to open the flood gates.

Is anyone else able to find the vintage figures on TRU.com anymore?

The new Legends and TCW stuff is still there, but I cannot find any listings for the Vintage figures any longer.

They do have the Cloud Car and Snowspeeder up still.

Think they pulled these after someone figured out they shouldn't be selling them "early"?

I was on yesterday and they had Vader and maybe 3-PO, the rest were gone. I wondered the same thing, that they realized a goof too late.

But the speeder and cloud cars were still there.

$28?  Is that what they cost in stores?

At TRU they are.  They're supposed to be $25 at Target/WM.

Interesting...I saw them yesterday too, but today - nothing. I don't mean they are sold out either, the listings themselves are actually gone from what I can tell.

Makes me wonder too - is that street date only applicable to the Vintage stuff?

I can still find them, for example: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4070600

or http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4070606

or http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4070579

They are all out of stock - they have been pretty much all week.

The case I bought of the Clone Wars Wave 2 last night had an August 6th date on it too. So I think the date is supposed to apply to all product.

Thanks Pete!

It's weird though, I can get the figures to come up via your links, but I can't seem to find them via key search words like "Vintage" or "3.75", and I also don't see them listed anymore in the general section for action figures.

Maybe they have re-configured how they are being displayed or something. I did notice the Han was listed as "In Stock" so it seems like they would want you to actually be able to order him.

Yeah, so even with Buy-one-get-one-half-off they come out to $50 shipped from TRU's website... I might as well just hold off and get them at Target.

With Rob moving North, I've had to find figures myself...

But look what turned up at a Local TRU (Fort Worth).







Best of all they were Buy 1 get one 50% off...

it's just a bunch of x's.

It's a paypal card and after the Toys, the Route 44 Coke from Sonic and the ATM stop, it is empty.  If you can get money out of it, go for it.

To add to Scott's front Page Story... I did see cases of the Legends and Clone waves (at least a dozen each) but there were only 2 vintage cases.
