Odd Wal-Mart finds
« on: April 12, 2003, 11:54 PM »
Last night I found Leia in Boushh disguise on green card and lando calrissian on orange card. They're both kinda beat up but the figs are okay. Never had them before so I might keep them BUT if anyone wants to trade for them or needs a second (or third) they're up for sale if you want them.  ;)

Awesome find!  Brings you back in time, doesn't it (seeing those POTF2 figs on pegs)?

I found a GC Yak Face at HEB once.  I din't buy him because he had a poor card.  Ironically enough, I never owned one.

About a year ago I found a POTF2 Emeror on the pegs at K-Mart.  About that same time my TRU was remodeling so they found some old POTF2 figures somewhere and had them on the pegs.  I think it was all Ewok Celebration Leia

Heh.  No.

One store around me still has medic droids on green cards at full retail.  Strictly openers they've been moved around the store so often.  Found some Episode I Padme Naberrie today and there's an omnipresent supply of Shmi around as well.

Some Rite Aid drugstores around here still had green cards and EU carded figures on the pegs when EP1 figures were nearing the end of their run. I always found that funny.

I heard someone on Rebelscum say he took his figures BACK to Wal Mart (years later) and they still scanned into the system, where he was able to return them. I'm wondering...you think maybe this was the case?

Worked for me, and NO, they didn't become peg warmers.  They were gone within a week.

The Wal-Mart near me is undergoing remodelling. I guess they are also cleaning out their storage area, because over the last week some POTF2 figures have popped up on the shelf (nothing rare or HTF). However, I went in last night and cruised by the toys, and found a purple carded Dash Rendar! It had a sticker on the bubble for $4.79, but it rang up for $2.49. Score!

Not a bad score there Karma!  Any odd find like that is a good one.

Sweet deal. I wonder how many other stores have stuff in storage that have sat there for years.
Well done.  8)

Thats pretty cool Karma. I missed most of those so for me to find any in the stores would be cool. I agree it makes you wonder what else it stored away in some of those other warehouses.

I just found a POTF2 Dewback @ WalMart

I walk down the aile, past the same old SAGA crap, and then at the bottom of the shelf is a MINT Dewback and Sandtrooper from POTF2 days... Of course I bought it... Very awesome snag, I think I'll leave it in the box since it's in such great shape.  :-*
