Title: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Darth_Anton on October 21, 2006, 12:02 PM
I guess it's time to start one of these up.


My Tin Bikerscout and Blue Clone arrived from Hong Kong yesterday. I also picked up the PT Tin sets at TRU yesterday.

Well then.....

My Bikers from the Tin showed up a few days ago.  They are nice, despite Hasbro's attempt to Jango-tize them.

Could you please direct me to the place that you bought those?

Picked up the ANH set on Monday or Tuesday at TRU and got a free Wookiee Warrior to boot.  As I said in another thread, Vader's great, the Sandtrooper's good, Leia sucks, and Threepio STILL sucks.  The tin is useless.

I received the Clone Lieutenant from the AOTC Tin set (thank you Dressel Rebel!) on Tuesday as well, and picked up a ROTS tin on Tuesday afternoon at the local WM so I could finally get an Evolutions Anakin in at least one of the two Anakin JSFs from ROTS.  The AT-RT Driver isn't too bad, but Mace and Yoda weren't even opened.  The tin, again, is useless.

As far as 30AC goes so far I've just bought the Kanos/Jax set and the AOTC tin (basically just for the blue clone and Anakin).

I plan on getting ANH and possibly ROTJ tins when I find them, and the entire 8 Wave 1 when I find them, which might be the first time in years I bought an entire wave.

I found all of the OT tins just now at TRU.  I did buy the ANH one mainly for the Leia and stormtrooper.

I was tempted on the ROTJ one for the scout, but I don't like the Endor Rebel or Leia Endor.

The ESB was also a little tempting for the Chewie Hoth.  Snowtrooper is okay, but the articulation sucks.

Anyhow, not too bad a deal on the ANH at least with the free fig giveaway and all.

 :P

well, thats what xmas is for. i also want an extra few tins as openers. Out of all the tins, I can only think of 5 out of the 24 that absolutely SUCK beyond ******* belief.

1. Mace Windu in ROTS
2. Yoda in ROTS
3. Princess Leia in ANH
4. Snowtrooper in ESB
5. Rebel Commando in ROTJ

so, yeah, openers would be welcome but all six for this MOC completist is fine by me.

The OT tins showed up at our local TRU this week, so I picked up the ANH set over the weekend.  Our local Wal-Mart also appears to have buckets of the prequel sets now, but I think I'm passing on those - unless they go on clearance eventually, then maybe I'll pick them up for the 1 or 2 figures I want from them :).

Today I scored the TPM and ROTS tin sets at KayBee.  They're normally priced at $34.99, but with the weekend's Buy One, Get One 50% Off sale, the two sets came to $52 and change.  Then throw in the fact that it was a purchase of over $50, they threw in a $10 gift card that's good until Christmas Eve.  NICE!  So they were basically $21 each after all of the discounts.

Well... I finally caved on the tins-  at least for now I just picked up the Cantina set.   I have the original Mailaways for them but the "new" details on the instruments just made the decision for me.   Also, the artwork on the Tin is one of my favorites from the Topps Galaxies I set.  Still undecided about the other tins though.    Also finally found a Gagra to pick up- It seems the only way I find this wave is finding a single figure from it amongst the crap from the hoth wave.  Go figure!

I found the comic packs at our local Target on Saturday, and picked up all three.  I was definitely going to get the Han/Chewie pack, but decided to get the other two as well - not sure if I will regret that or not.  Nothing else new around here though lately, on the Star Wars side of things.

I saw Vader's Sith Starfighter at TRU over the weekend, and picked it up despite the $5 extra they charge for the starfighter assortment there.  I'll probably keep it with the receipt for just a bit, in case I can find it a little cheaper at Target or WM.  It has sounded to me as if they aren't the easiest thing to find, so I figured I would pick one up just in case.

Well, the market is bigger so more figures makes sense.

With respect to your more waves comment, you are accurate but this should come as no surprise at all:

POTF2: last wave(s) never made it to Canada (RH Vader, etc.)
{Intermediate waves:
Flashback:  two figure were extremely hard to find in Canada, though did arrive in small amounts
Commtech: stormtrooper next to impossible to find until a wack dumped at Walmart on clearance}

Episode I: last two waves never released in Canada (Sio Bibble, R2-B1, etc.)
POTJ: last two waves never released in Canada (Imperial officer, snaggletooth, etc.)
Saga (I): no figures released beyond about #44 or so (Palpatine?) so 2 or more waves
OTC: last wave of post-OTC never released in Canada (Sandtrooper, biker scout re-releases)
ROTS: last two waves never released in Canada (501st, etc.)
Saga (II): last two regular waves plus Walmart wave never released in Canada
30AC: do you see the trend and have you figured it out yet?

As for Canada getting stuff first, it's only because we're not getting the tail end of the previous series, nothing more.  Last time that happened there was so much Carkoon wave on the pegs it took about three months until we saw something new.  Thankfully this wave is a lot nicer than the Carkoon wave, so if they keep restocking it ad nauseum, it will still move (minus R2/Obi/Mace).

i also saw the new wave of titanium series for the first time. i wish i could get all four but my budget only allowed for two, so i got dewback and grievous's starfighter. pretty happy with them. i rarely pick up any from this line but c'mon who doesnt love a nice dewback?

As per our story here on JD's front page, I found a set of figures tonighy at Sears Grand around Pittsburgh, PA.

(http://www.jedidefender.com/news/images/7-06/TACFindsFull.jpg)

I didn't get a whole set as they only had 2 figures, but the Marine is OUTSTANDING, and Obi's no slouch by a long shot.  Great figure from '05 with great accessories and a nice new headsculpt for one specific moment this character was viewed.

His outfit could use some wear/tear to look more "worn" from the blast and escape.

The figure's a little odd with the Grievous Guard staff and pistol though.  Gear this figure shouldn't have, actually. :)
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Darth_Anton on March 6, 2007, 09:32 AM
I'm still on the fence on whether or not to buy an opener Obi-Wan. It's a great looking figure, but there's just too little that's new. :-[
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on March 6, 2007, 07:45 PM
New head/rebreather made it worth it to me...  It's from one moment on Utapau, but it worked and looks good.

On another purchase note, I got R2, the last TAC figure I could find, at a local K-Mart. 

R2's like Obi there.  VERY scene specific.  The "glow" paint on him for the flames and the jet accessories really make this R2 good for only one specific moment (his taking off) from ROTS...  It doesn't even work for AOTC due to the flame-glow paint aps on him.  He really is just for ROTS.  Still, he looks great...  R2/Obi are really the two figures though that are "meh" in this wave, if any are.  And I still like them a lot.

Our local TRU restocked with all sorts of new stuff for various lines this weekend, and I ran across some of the TAC figures.  Of course, the clones/McQuarrie Stormy were long gone, but I did pick up a Mace and Obi-Wan.  They had the rest of the wave there as well, but I had those (R2, SBD, Lava Miner) on the way from HasbroToyShop so I left them there.  They also had the coin album, several of them actually, but I also had that in my HTS order.  It never fails, once I get impatient and order something online, I see them in the store in the next day or two.  I also finally found the Tantive battle pack, so I was happy to pick one of those up.  Pretty good weekend overall, although I'm a little concerned about finding the clones from this wave - hopefully it ships fairly heavily for a bit here.

Stopped by Walmart on way to work, keep in mind this particular Walmart has been stocked with the same 2 endoboo Emporer's since Christmas, at the very least I've been hoping that they'd eventually stock the exclusive final 4 so I could finally get my hands on the Mace droid, but no such luck.  Instead I walked out with:

6 Marines
6 Airborne
1 Mcquirre Stormie
 :o and there were plenty left to spare all pegs were fully stocked when I got there and after I'd left each peg was still stocked at least 4 deep with TAC leaving about 4 or 5 Mcquirre stormies still sitting.  And of course the 2 Emporers were sitting there on some random peg away from the TAC.

Whoa Walmart is really starting to unload the 30 AC onto the pegs.  Wave 1 is not going to be tough to find, especially since it's mostly repacked into the next 2-3 assortments.

I've already picked up between 15-20 of each of the Super Battle Droid, Galactic Marine, and Airborne Trooper and I'm gonna stop the hunt for a month and just pick up maybe 1 or 2 figures when I'm out food shopping or whatever.

The SBD, Marine and Parjai are really top notch 1st rate VOTC/VTSC quality figures.  What a wave.

Im from So cal. East of LA.  Today was the "official" street day for the TAC ( at Target atleast) U might want to keeping checking Hasbro.com/shop they have the figures on there, but are sold out right now. Put in "Exclusive collectors coins" in the search field.

I received an order from HTS.com today that had the following:

1x Mustafar Lava Miner
1x Mace Windu
1x R2-D2
1x SBD
1x Vader w/coin album

I did see these at TRU a week or so ago, but I had already placed this order so I left them on the pegs.  Now I just need to hunt down the tougher finds from this wave - Galactic Marine (hopefully x4), the Airborne Trooper (x2), and the McQuarrie Stormtrooper (hopefully x2).

I stopped by Wal-Mart this morning, and found the Saleucami BP on one of their endcaps.  It was sitting there alongside the Vader w/albums, but there wasn't any TAC figures in sight.  Pegs were still overflowing with Enboo stuff, so it might not be stocked anytime soon.

Hasbro's cranking out nifty stuff but the cost is a lot all at once.  Plus I'm still coming off TSC army building drain and didn't even get EVERYTHING I wanted in all the clone colors.  Hasbro could ease up a tad and I wouldn't complain.

Amen to that.  I would be fine if they didn't have so many multi-fig packs - those have really added up over the last 3-4 months.  I managed to get another Tantiv IV BP today, but I think I'm calling quits on those unless they go on clearance.

Acquired Mustafar Lava Miner from a trade. Great figure, the best of Wave 1.

Purchased Order 66 2-Pack (Commander Bow+Darth Vader). This is my favorite 2-Pack, and it was originally the only one of the six that I planned on tracking down. Now that I have it, I have no interest in finding the others (barf and candy corn paint aps on clones just don't grab me!).

I was able to pick up one each of the Galactic Marine and Airborne Trooper this weekend at Target.  They were the only two on the pegs, amongst about 8 Obi-Wans, 4 R2-D2s, and one SBD.  I'm hoping to be able to pick up some extras of each of the clones (particularly the Marine), and hopefully grab 1-2 of the McQuarrie trooper if I'm ever lucky enough to see one.

I stopped by TRU this morning, and I was able to pick up 2x Galactic Marine and 1x Airborne Trooper.  I wouldn't mind finding one more Marine, but otherwise I'm caught up with the basic figures aside from the elusive McQuarrie Trooper of course.  Our local Target had stocked the pegs full of TAC figures as well, but the clones, McQuarrie, and SBD were not there at all.  I do see a bright future of Obi-Wans and R2s though the way things are looking.  Yikes.

The Targets of my area usually dont get much new stuff until way later, so I was surprised to get the Biggs. And since mom was out shopping with her friend, who has been a friend of the family since I was a fedus, the friend bought me Galactic Marine and Ceremonial Luke for my graduation in June.

I am surrounded by such great people!!!  ;D

What are the prices in your area?  My local Targets and TRU's have the TAC figs for $6.99 - I didn't think Wal-Mart was much cheaper than that.  I was lucky to at least build a little bit of my W1 collection during the TRU "Spend $20 and get $5 gift card" promotion.  I bought three figs for $21, went back and bought three more ofr $16, went back and bought three more for $16, and I still have a $5 coupon!

And it is THE COOLEST FIGURE EVER PRODUCED BY HASBRO!!! (at least carded, Im not opening it though) It looks AMAZING, it is so awesome, it looks great the way Im displaying it with my concept figs for the year...I crapped myself when it came in the mail I was so happy.

It's the best, I encourage everyone out there to grab one while they last, because its so damn neat its gonna definitely be hard to find. Track it down by whatever means neccessary, its well worth it. Awesome!!!
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on April 9, 2007, 11:24 PM
I nabbed:

All of the Order 66 2-packs except Anakin w/Blue Airborne Trooper, and I got an extra of the Kashyyyk/Yoda and Windu/Marine Guy for a gift.  Not bad for $10, actually, and if these were more widely available I think they're ideal gifts in a way...  Weird.

Anyway, I also got another Airborne Wave 1 Trooper and 2 more Marines.  Could've had 4 Marines and 3 Airborne but showed some restraint today so I'm not scraping by month's end on my financial toy leash.

Great figures though, it's tough not to buy.

It's just my opinion. It's an awesome figure and I think everyone should have one. And it will be tough to find at one per case and with all of its features and it being a concept figure.

It's better than DS Trooper and Honor Guard, thats for sure!!! And THAT's FACT.

And it will be tough to find at one per case and with all of its features and it being a concept figure.


Rather, a case with only one Boba would be tough to find.  Mostly since he's packed 2 per case like all of the other figures in Wave 2.

Why was the Stormie only packed one per case?  Not because they made less of him than all of the other figures.  No no no.  But instead he's being repacked in Wave 1 revision 1, and again in Wave 2 revision 1.  He is shipping through June.  That makes up for the early 1 per case ratio.



It's better than DS Trooper and Honor Guard, thats for sure!!! And THAT's FACT.


Much like the "1 per case" Boba hysteria, also not a fact.  But if you like concept designs that didn't make the grade, over SA OT army builders, maybe.  Me, I'll take the SA army builder every time.  But luckily I can get them all and don't have to choose, so it's a moot point.

Hmmm, yeah I'm gonna say there's no "fact" to Fett's coolness over the others in the case, haha.  ;)  Sorry, but that's not much of a positive argument, and again I have to say that the McTrooper's maybe shown shipping 1-to-a-case in some revisions, but my point about this has been ignored completely...

How hard were Utapau Clones to find at first?  Death Star Gunners?  Sandtroopers?

The year's really young...  Hasbro loves remixing things later in the year to get more out on pegs.  Holy hell I am seeing Gummi Maul again, and Gen. Riekean is resurfacing...  Hasbro will remix the McTrooper if they decide they can sell him more.  They'll remix Fett in too.

There's no shortage of these figures and buying into the idea they'll be impossible to find when they've only been shipping for a couple weeks is really a sign of collecting ignorance.  If you pay extra because you have to have it NOW, I respect that mode of thought...  If you pay extra because you beat it into your own head that you won't find it later though, and I can't help but just view you as part of the problem with collecting's ****** side of scalpers and the folks who fund them.

Hell if you're willing to pay the premium, you may as well order these from over seas early and at least give the money to someone who isn't dicking over the hobby, ya know?  Plus you get it early...  Don't feed the guy that is the reason there's little "we can't go in the back stockroom for you as our store policy" signs on Target pegs.  That's just douchey.

dont get me started on the DST :P damn thing cost me $14, only to find out my sister found dozens of them when she went to the states last week. >:( but i agree with what you said. no point in paying extra for a line that just came out. i admit i did wit the marine, but then i felt like a moron after paying $20 for a figure and took it back 15 minutes later...good thing i did because i then found another marine just 3 stores over. my point is be patient and it will come. and be smarter with your money. the way i see it $20 can get you two figures...so why waste it on one?  (i know it cost less in the states but w.e)

I always wonder when I see things like that.  Probably hidden figures that were found when the employees straighten the shelves after the store closes.

Saw some posts on the Fett's "rareness" - it's definitely too early at this point to tell if it will be or not.  I've seen three at retail so far, but no Biggs.  Weird.  In fact I've seen more Fetts than any other Wave 2 figure.  But I won't be surprised if it's rare at some point or people who miss out and want one later have a hard time... some figures just don't get the love from Hasbro like we'd like in terms of availabilty... like the first go round of the McQuarrie Trooper in the SAGA line, Ephant Mon, Pablo Jill, etc.  So if you see it and want it, I'd say get it when can, because you never know how things will shape up.  I wouldn't go overpaying for something like this so early in the hunt though.

On topic, no new purchases for me in almost a week.  Which is easily the longest I've gone in the past two years without buying anything new.

Some locals found them at WM...  I think I might've posted a story on it on our front page but now  I forget.  I do know some of my local buds found them there a little while ago, before TRU and Target got them out here actually.  Weird.

It's a case here and a case there though, we've seen nothing significant in terms of new figures since KM first got the Wave 1's in, in some quantity, in my area well before all the other retailers.  Very strange time with nothing much shipping unless you're really lucky to walk in and see the fresh case put out there.

I've just been reading that they were showing up at wm now too.  One guy on anotheR Site said it was a revision case that he found with 1 fett and 3 others from wave 2 but the rest were wave 1 figs.

Well, looks like the otheR Site got the news posted first again about wave 2 being at WM finally, I tried.

What I saw last night was 3 cases of Wave 2

1 case labeled wave 2
2 cases labeled wave 2 Rev 3

The wave 2, rev 3 are truly different than the wave 2 cases in that there is only one McFett and no Biggs at all and plenty of refreshers from wave 1 as Gorko mentioned.

Like JJ said in his post, there were a few reports of Wave 2 hitting Wal-Marts last week... for example:

they've hit several stores in my area in sporadic numbers.  And they have hit at Wal-Mart around Pittsburgh but only a case here, a case there...

I don't think "Wave 2 at Wal-Mart" was widely reported because the Wave 2 figures have been out at so many other places (Target, TRU, KB, HasbroToyShop, K-Mart) over the last 2-3 weeks...

I found 2 of the 3 new comic packs at TRU on Sunday - the Luke/R2 pack, and the Obi-Wan/ARC pack.  No sign of the Vos pack yet, but hopefully soon.  I also found a McQuarrie Fett at the Target across town from us.  Strangely, it was the only Wave 2 figure on the pegs, and the only other TAC figures there were 1x Mace, 1x Lava Miner, and 1x Super BattleDroid.  I was surprised that Obi-Wan, R2, etc. were missing, but there was a Fett there.  Weird.

Cutting production this year wouldn't make any sence. I know it seems slugish right now, but that may have something to do with the production delays that prevented TAC from hitting the shelves in December of '06. I'd bet that we're going to be seeing a lot on the pegs very soon.
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Nicklab on April 30, 2007, 12:27 PM
The release pace seems a little slow, and I think that's attributable to Hasbro gearing up for their other big license releases this year.  Anyone notice all of the Spiderman product in stores?  And there's also bound to be a lot of Transformers product, too.  And I have no doubt that those lines are made in the same factories as Star Wars over in China.  As a result I think we may see less in the stores this year.  But if the sales numbers are good they may ramp up production towards the end of the year.

I've got to agree with you Jesse. I found my first today too. I may even get an additional one sometime after C-IV. This may very well be the best ship to ever come out of Pawtucket. It looks great flanking Vader's JSF.

I'm pondering 3 or 4 of these actually, should the availability be there.  I saw two and left one there...

Still, painted details?  Hasbro, you surprise me!  The weathering may be the best ever, or at the very least since the A-Wing which is probably their best, most accurate film-work up till now in terms of paintjobs.  Both A-Wings are nice but the original is a jim dandy.

This V-Wing is right up there with it though, they did a great job.

Post by: jedipurge on May 3, 2007, 01:34 PM
I know this is a purchease thread but when you see the V-wing next to the TIE Fighter doesn't the Empire seem like they downgraded over time.  The V is so much cooler looking then the TIE.  My only complaint about the V is the size of the Astromech's head, it's a little small.
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on May 3, 2007, 02:55 PM
I was looking over scale on the ship...  Personally I'm saying it's to-scale but the few refs I've found (which I think are not accurate and are #'s being made up in someone's head without any investigation/estimation) put it undersized.

Anyway, what I have found is that the astromech in the back is a Q7 model Astro...  I'm not making this up.  It's a sphere.  My guess is it's essentially a "Torture Droid" astromech.  A hovering R2 head, and I think it is supposed to be smaller...  It's nto supposed to be a "full" droid like R2 though.

On the issue of scale, I'm saying the ship is to-scale...  Being a CGI model there's no good reference to go with and the length I've read is to me clearly inaccurate just by eyeballing the ship, the cockpit, etc., from the film and still images of the CGI model.  "scale" being off in books isn't uncommon for SW though.  Almost every source still lists the Executor at 12km long, and AT-AT's at 15m tall.  Both, very VERY off.  And those have friggin' physical models to go by...  CGI ships like this are even tougher.  So I say it's right, kudos to Hasbro for using physical images to base their design on though, and not trusting books.

I FINALLY found a a pair of TAC Death Star Troopers and a Yavin Guard at Walmart.   However, the packaging on all 3 was piss poor.   Good thing I'm an opener.  The Guard was in the "best" shape with only a few bends/creases.   The first DST's card was bent on all 4 corners with the bubble totally squashed (the figure's fine though!).   The other DST looked like the great hand of fate picked it up and then crushed it in it's hand.   The bubble was open, the card was crushed like the trash compactor but surprisingly, the figure was intact and the coin still in place.   Since I hadn't seen either of these yet, I picked em up.   Walmart customer service wouldn't give me a discount though....

I think it's OK. My opinion never really jibes with the fandom-at-large anyway.

I actually think it's the best Ep IV Hamill sculpt we've gotten. Go figure.
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on May 7, 2007, 02:04 AM
I think the sculpt (haven't seen it in person, basing this on photos) isn't bad, it's the color that's off (skin and hair).  The sculpt I think, with a good paintjob, could be decent.  I wonder if VTSC X-Wing Luke would fit on that Luke body though?  That's a good Hammil likeness IMO and the color too.
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases

The skin tones don't match. The VTSC X-Wing Luke is more tan than the Yavin Luke.

Picked up the comic packs last Saturday morning at TRU. My son bought the extra of the Voss and Alpha sets. I didn't realize the Luke was SAC until I got home and looked at it more(not an opener) and because I didn't read the boards about it earlier. Geez, I bet those Luke 2 packs won't sit long.

I also picked up the V-wing via Matteo at our SOCAL swap meet up lunch

I FINALLY saw Wave 2 figures tonight, though picked over and of course not a McFigure in sight.

2 Rebel Honor Guards, 1 Death Star Trooper, 1 Biggs

Not a HUGE buy but just seeing new figures had me fairly giddy.

I also nabbed 3 '06 Clone Repaints too...  Doing my part to wipe off the pegs.

Consider yourself lucky. I've only seen him once, when I found my four. TSC is still out in full force around here. The most 30AC any of the stores around me have are maybe a few Obi-Wans and R2s that are left over. I've seen all of Wave 2 once, and still have yet to see the McTrooper. 30AC is scare pickings around here, that's for sure.
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: darth punkinhed on May 10, 2007, 12:47 PM
So far I've managed to score a R2, battle droid, obi, mcfett, mctropperx2, airborn trooper, lavaminer, Han, vader, mace, marine, death star trooper and luke. Only saw them once but I lucked into 2 cases so I grabbed one each of the regular figs and 2 each of the mc's, traded a fett already. I did manage to get the vader w/coin album @ $5 on clearance at Target though. Picked up the order 66 #5 pack with anakin/vader and clone but so far that's all I've really managed to get my hands on. Money being the real obstacle over locating this stuff. I didn't pick up much on Saga but I'm all over this line. After TAC I'm probably going to go back to just picking up what I find interesting. I just wish they'd release a new death star playset.

Man, I can't wait for Wave 3 to hit SJ and get me a Jawa (or twelve) and Biggs. For those of you who did find a stormtrooper, how's the helmet? Did they fix it? Or is it still huge and crappy? Is there a new Jango head under it or is it a reused one? I need to know if I want these or not.

As for actual purchases...I just ordered my graduation present to me from me on EE the other day. I got the $69.99 combo-set thingy with the astro droids, and I also got the Republic Commando set.  8)

I found all of Wave 3 except for Biggs, Mi'iyoom & Ellis. The new stormie is OK, basically a VOTC w/ a different head & removable helmet. Maybe it's just me but his neck seems bit short. With the helmet on it looks like he's shrugging.

Don't worry then.... you're only missing Biggs since those aliens are in wave 4 ;D

Right on. I saw the aliens listed in Scum's website as being part of Wave 3 but elsewhere as Wave 4. I guess I find them when I find them. If I find Biggs in the next couple days, that'll be the fastest I've ever gotten an entire wave.

SW Monkey: I can't tell if the helmet is fixed or not. I'm not sure what it's being compared to I guess. On the figure, it looks fine except it looks like he's hunched over. The helmet fits pretty loose compared to others. I have mine displayed with the helmet tucked under his arm. I'm not sure if the head is all new or re-used from the Death Star Gunner w/ scars added.

I had an experience today that proved that there are still some very nice redshirts aka Target employees out there if you look hard enough and are in the right place at the right time. A redshirt was stocking the pegs at my local Target with Wave 1 and 2, nothing very interesting, just Hans and Lukes. But she kmew me from past visits, said hi, and I didnt even ask her to do this, but she checked her scanner thingy and found a case in the backroom. She went and brought it back, opened it up, and I was allowed to take my pick at all sorts of Wave 3 goodies. I had a tight budget, so I got Stormtrooper, Jawa w/LIN, and CONCEPT CHEWBACCA!!!! Awesome! I guess I was just in the right place at the right time, but that's still a nice story I thought I'd share with you. And btw, all of Wave 3 looks super in person except for ugly Luke(the moisture vaporator's cool though), who was snatched by another guy who seemed like a collector the instant after I started to walk away. Good news for those of you who want to army build the new stormtrooper, I know he'll be tough to find, but if you have the same luck I did, there were three in the case I saw. Good luck guys, this is one of the best waves ever!!  8)

I tore open a couple cases of vintage at WM tonight and got some Snowtroopers and IG-88.  Didn't have the $$$ for the rest so I'm a little depressed this evening at that, but I did get my snowie army going.  There were at least 3 pre-packaged display cases on the pallet ready to go out on an endcap though (was wondering hwere these would end up since there's no peg space for them).

Wow, I thought my lucky streak was over after C4, but I guess it's not done quite yet.  Scored the following this morning:

2 x Stormtroopers
1 x Biggs in Academy uniform
2 x Darth Vader
1 x Jawa & LIN droid
1 x Luke Skywalker with moisture vaporator
1 x McQuarrie Chewbacca
1 x VINTAGE Snowtrooper

Also had a really weird purchase at C4.  Some guys were selling stuff out of their hotel rooms, and I scored a couple of Vintage Snowtroopers from the guys in the room across the hall from mine.  And at retail, no less!

I hit Target as they were resetting the action figure aisle today and was able to score a few figures.  They had the entire vintage wave, but at $12 a piece, I only picked up 2x Snowtroopers and 1x Hoth Han Solo.  They had two Wave 3 figures on the pegs (Biggs and Vader), so I picked up the Biggs as well (got the Vader at the same store yesterday).  Hopefully there will be more Wave 3 showing up there soon.  They also had the new comic packs the way it looked.

And one of every VTSC fig (except Snowtrooper, of course, it wasnt there :'( )

Ill probably open Vos+Villie but Im not sure if Im opening the VTSCs. Hoth Han in particular looks like an awesome figure, but Bespin Luke...not so much.

Wow, nice to find all that in one place.  How many TAC figures did they have on the shelf?  If you got 8 stormies for alone, that's 4 cases worth, let alone anyhting you might have picked up for others or that the other three guys got.  I don't think any of the targets by me even have room for 4 cases of figs on the shelf!

The snowtrooper is the only VTAC figure I buy at Target.  The other 5 are had so readily right now at Walmart and TRU that I skip Target's $11.99 price in favor of $9.99 everywhere else.  Also, every VTAC figure except the snowie and IG-88 (and maybe even those two) are going to be had for $5 clearances at Wally.  Just you wait.

True, if you're talking about a wave 3 case. The wave 3 Rev. 1 cases have 3 stormies however-oh, and uh, those are out at stores now too. That's just what he reported getting- he didn't say how many cases there were; they're were others collectors there too... Crunchynug, Anton?

I picked up a few things this weekend as well, probably the biggest spending weekend I've had on Star Wars for quite some time now.  I picked up:

VTSC Han Solo Hoth - 2 openers
VTSC Snowtrooper - 4 openers
VTSC Bossk, IG-88, Leia, Luke Bespin - 1x each openers
TAC Stormtrooper

Our Target seems to put out one figure from Wave 3 each day.  I happened to be at the store Thurs/Fri/Sat of last week, and I found the Vader on Thursday, Biggs on Friday, and a Stormtrooper on Saturday.  I checked back on Sunday, and it was all Wave 2.  The VTSC figures sold out at our Targets, even at the higher pricepoint.  I picked up mine at our Wal-Mart, and they were tucked away in the "spillover" action figure aisle, and it didn't look like anyone else had found them.  There were two more Snowtroopers left there actually when I left.

Coincidental you say that because yesterday early afternoon I was at a local WM, and they had tons of AOTC clones and Shocktroopers from Legends and a bunch (probably 8-10) of each of the other Legends figures except for Maul and BD 2 packs.  I went back to WM about 7:30pm ish and all the AOTC clones and Shockies were gone!  At least 10 ROTS clones left though.

I received the Concept R2/3PO from ToyRocket on Saturday, and then traveled to the across town Wal-Mart on Sunday and found they had the first wave of the Saga Legends figures.  I picked up two AOTC Clonetroopers.  There were two more there, but the wifey said two was good with all the buying I've been doing lately - and she's right.

Tuesday: Picked up Death Star Trooper and Rebel Honor Guard at Wal-Mart, as well as a second Biggs Darklighter (Wave 3) at Target.

Wow! I just couldn't believe it! I stopped by my home Target on my way home and saw a Biggs Pilot on the pegs as well as a few legends figures (Yoda/Vader). I took both to the scanner and only the Biggs showed up as being in the back. I asked if they could check for me and the employee brought out not just a case, but a few separate figures including a McFett! The case was a wave 3 and I was able to snag a McChewie, Biggs Acadamy, Jawa, Luke, and Stormtrooper.

This is my first purchase at my home Target in a while! Looks like they are out there!

I picked up an extra chewie this weekend. The one I picked up this weekend makes up for the hosed card on the one I got before so now I have some trade fodder. I'm actually suprised by how many figs I've been able to pick up on decent cards. I've only snagged 1 fig so far on a bad card and if it hadn't been a mcfig I'd have passed. But I'm a carded collector for the most part.

Vader
VTAC snowie

Target:

McQuarrie Chewie
4 Legends AOTC clones
2 stormtroopers
jawa

I decided that I love the new stormtrooper without the helmet.  It's weird that they can make the snowtrooper with removable helmet perfectly, but could not do the same with the stormtrooper without it being warped and looking funny.

A buddy of mine snagged a mcfett and a mctrooper on Saturday at a different TRU so I had to try my luck. The thing is that I think they were actually holding these in the back. The guy asked him what he was looking for and that he'd check the back and came back with everything he asked for. I'm wondering if it was just a fluke or if they are trying to keep people from hoarding them.

This may mean a glut of waves hitting at once so expect to feel it in your wallet. So if they don't start showing this weekend maybe next week/weekend we could start seeing them.

I placed an order on HTS.com for the Mc Obi and Yoda, so I'm done with exclusive figures for the year. The SDCC Exclusive Destro figure was tempting, but I passed. If it was the gold head variant, then I would've bought it.

I think Hasbro Canada has something screwed up because so far with what I have noticed it seems like almost everystore around me and with what others have posted in Snowtroopers shows that Wave 2 is being restocked EVERYWHERE. Heck i walked into a local WM only to find 4 McFetts sitting on the pegs. i picked up my fourth thinking he would be gone in a matter of minutes. i was back about 1 hour later only to find him still there...minus a couple of DST and rebels  :o

(two cases were restocked.)
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases

The 501st was the Tank Gunner body, Rob

Picked up some carded Legends wave 2 yesterday: Boba, Boushh, Sesse Tin, Red BDs, Anakin, and Obi Wan.

The two cases I've seen so far have been the revision case that does not include the Destroyer Droid and Chewie.

Our TRU here in IA got the wave 3 comic packs.  Got Mara and Luke.  For $10 you can't complain but you're left wondering why they didn't save themselves more money and just use the VTSC pilot Luke legs, but maybe they couldn't bc of the tooling.  Great set.

bought another DST, funny thing is i returned it last week and he was still there.

checked another local WM and there was a HUGE restock of wave 2...at least 4 boxes..no Fetts.Its great to see hasbro Canada is shipping out SW figures however its completely stupid of them to be sending out the same figures 3 months straight now. we haven't had a new SW figure( comic or basic or BP) for almost 2 months now.

I also picked up two Legends Ep. 2 Clone Troopers. I am at three now, my goal is twelve. Nine more should be no problem. Every time I go to Target there have been at least a couple on the pegs, I've just been passing them up for other stuff. But I'll start buying more starting now, before I forget and they disappear. It is really the best figure ever, and I'm so glad I've been able to find them this ime around.

So far, this has meant I've been fortunate enough to add:

6 Jawas, and 6 LIN droids...
4 Moisture Vaporators
9 Galactic Marines
2 Airborne Troopers
2 Honor Guards

For $3 each.

6 COMPLETE UGH sets Jon? 

You serious?

If so, you selling by chance?  ;)  I'd like a loose set but haven't had much hope of finding all the gold UGH's (just as I never saw hardly any silver UGH's last year).

Our stores just reset with tons of figures, but Wave 4 wasn't out so I'm betting Wave 4's gonna be a pain to pick up here for a bit, unfortunately.
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Darth Slothus on August 21, 2007, 03:13 AM
I'm a little concerned that stores may skip revisions of wave 4 because of the store volume on figs not allowing for auto orders- hence 'skipping' waves. So I got extra sets for trade if this indeed becomes the case. However, if I'm totally wrong-- which does happen often, then I'll 'sell off' my extras.

Okay, story time. Sit down and grab a cup 'o joe.

I hit a local WM this morning. Just as they opened the doors, the Asian lady who owns a hello kitty store that scalps figures appeared. Normally, she or her husband are consistently a few minutes late, but today, she got there just in the nick of time. She raced me to the SW figs.

Lucky for me, they had put out a case or two of wave 2 Legends on the end-cap side. She stopped, started grabbing all the Sandtroopers and Fetts. Since I'm good with wave 2, I went to the main section which was overflowing with wave 4.4 (no Vader or CZ-4.) Knowing she's stocking for her store, I started grabbing every gold coin I could find. When she saw what I was doing, she literally dropped her hand full of figures and darted toward me and started after the gold coins.

With her arms full of McChewies and gold coins, she started asking me if I was buying all of mine. Since I never talked with her, I figured I'd be nice, try to share and actually gave her a gold coin Fett and Chewie as an olive branch. BIG MISTAKE. She then started asking me why I need so many. She was so preoccupied with what I had in my hands that she failed to notice that there were still plenty of gold coins on the pegs. I told her, "there's still plenty there," she said, "no, you have them all." I proceeded to pull an Animated Boba Gold coin off the pegs and handed it to her. She then started pointing to all my Fetts and Chewies and asked if she could have them and said I don't need them all. I told her I need them for trade, she said it was unfair that I had so many and that, get this, she need them for her store. Keep in mind, she has twice as many figures in her arms. She then started to all but cry and threaten to tell management on me. Having gotten all but one Gold Airborne trooper from the pegs, I just left. She got a shopping cart and started dumping figures in it.

I was really pissed. So at check out, I told the cashier that the lady following me is crazy and gave her the cliff notes version. The cashier called the manager and asked me to repeat what happened. The manager told the cashier to call him when she comes to check out. He said she's not walking out of the store with all those toys.

I really wanted to hang out and watch, but felt it'd be bad form. In the end I only walked away with two Fett's, three chewies and five Troopers, so I was really mad that I gave up two Fetts and a Chewie to her. Lessoned learned.

And BTW, the Fett's and Chewies are already spoken for. Sorry guys.

I received my set of Wave 4 from BBTS yesterday, now its just time to keep an eye out for a few extras here and there.
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Darth_Anton on August 22, 2007, 12:28 PM
Part II

I had inside knowledge that the same WM from yesterday had more Wave 4.75 cases, so I called a friend of mine who I knew was still looking and could make it to the store at opening today. He also handles himself well in a crisis. I decided to go out of pure curiosity to see if Hello Kitty lady would show up and to see what would happen.

When I arrived, my friend was there, no Hello Kitty lady. The Manager I spoke to yesterday saw me and pulled me aside. He was rolling his eye the whole time, but he told me he talked to Hello Kitty lady and she said that I threatened her, swore at her and intimidated her. It was obvious that he didn't believe her, but he did say that certain protocol would have to be followed should she make the claims again which would mean us both being barred from the store. I apologized and he said not to worry.

That said, the store opened and me and my buddy went in. They stocked wave 2 legends, but no Wave 4, which I knew they had.

Then she came, with shopping cart, and she just started yelling at me. Said I had no right to tell WM that she owned a store and that I'm trash for doing so. She wouldn't stop yelling. She said they limited her quantities. I basically said, look, I tried to be nice, I gave you figures, but you just wanted more. Again, she said I didn't need them and continued to yell at me. Employees are watching, I kept quiet, occasionally saying, I tried to be nice. She kept calling me trash and said everyone does what she's doing and that I had not right to tell WM that she owns a store, it's an invasion of privacy. She also read my post on scum and she said I have no right to tell the world she has a Tax ID and that she orders from Hasbro and Newforce. Then she said if I showed up near her store or at the adjacent TRU, she'd have me arrested. My buddy is just laughing and I swear to God, she was foaming at the mouth, literally, she was so mad. I was very amused.

Then her husband showed up. He was calmer and didn't really say much.

Did I mention my kids were with me? Having heard enough, I picked them up and left to leave the store. She followed me, continuing to yell. Luckily, the Manager was walking up the isle. Since I was slightly ahead of her, I did one of those covert pointing and twirling my finger at the side of my head. I kept my mouth shut and she hung herself complaining about me and yelling at the manger. Luckily, the manager was cool and said, you're the only one I hear yelling. Her response was, "because he made me mad." I saw one of the witnessing employees shake his head and laugh, saying "that's no reason to yell." Bottom line, she and her husband were both escorted to the door. The manager told me to shop as normal. I apologized but he said again not to worry.

All I bought was a high school musical pencil holder for my older daughter.

That's crazy.  Despite whatever the manager told you, I'm sure the lady left with every gold coin they had.  I've seen something similar a few times over the years and it always leaves me with a sick feeling inside.  Personally, I think the whole UGH program breeds this kid of behavior and I will be very happy when it finally goes away.

went on a long and fun figure hunt but only came home with one SL ep 2 clone trooper, which I ended up buying at a comic shop for an extra $2. The last WM we went to HAD wave 3 but we were too late to actually see it, then they customer service guy told us they have nothing in their stockroom, as in they never have anything in their at all, which begs the question what is the point in haviung a stock room if according to him they dont use.

in regards to the figure I really like it but it has really soft plastic. Wouldnt mind picking up 3 more, just hoping I can find it at retail price though.

There were no Gold coins on the shelf the second day.

They weren't limiting her quantities until I ratted on her the first day for rudely trying to take all my gold coins for her store, despite the fact that I had already given her some and that there were still plenty on the pegs. That first day, I checked out, ratted her out, then she walked up to the cash register with a shopping cart full of figures and the manager stopped her, told her she couldn't buy everything in her cart. This happened. That's why she was pissed at me the second day and got kicked out of the store with nothing (although she was trying to buy all the SL Sandtroopers, droids and Fetts.)

My mail-away coin set arrived from Hasbro yesterday. It is really, really cool!

I also stumbled upon all of Wave 3 of the comic packs at Target the other day. I was low on money, so I only got A'Sharad and the Dark Woman. I would've gotten the Luke/Mara one just for the Luke, but the Mara looked so terrible and both A'Sharad and the Dark Woman looked really great! And they are. I will try to pick up the Luke eventually, though.

I am also still on the lookout for Wave 4!  :'(

The Wal-Mart next to my house for some reason has all of their Legends figures ringing up at $2. I was buying a few anyway(Boba Fett and Sandtrooper) when I realized they only rang up at $2. I went back later and bought several AOTC clones a few Obi-Wans, Saesee Tin, Darth Vader, Leia in Boush disguise, 2 destroyer droids and 2 packs of the Battle droid 2 packs. All this for just over $28 bucks.  My friend said that I was being unethical by doing this. I don't see it that way because I plan on keeping all of these(most for custom fodder) and it's not my fault that Wal-Mart can't mark their stuff correctly.

nice deal man!

My score from fan expo:

Tem Morrisons signature
1997 SW calender (thinking of cutting out the pics to make a mini poster)
Ponda and Momaw bar scene figures ($6 a piece )
Luke in the bacta tank
saga Sandtrooper
Jack skelignton mini statue from kingdom hearts
nute gunray episode 1
a Zam wessal comic (can not remember name)
and Zam wessels speeder

There was not as much SW stuff there as last year and if there was new figures they were selling at $13-15 a piece so I stuck to old figures I still wanted to get or that just had a kicka&* deal.

Okay, story time. Sit down and grab a cup 'o joe.

I hit a local WM this morning. Just as they opened the doors, the Asian lady who owns a hello kitty store that scalps figures appeared. Normally, she or her husband are consistently a few minutes late, but today, she got there just in the nick of time. She raced me to the SW figs.

Lucky for me, they had put out a case or two of wave 2 Legends on the end-cap side. She stopped, started grabbing all the Sandtroopers and Fetts. Since I'm good with wave 2, I went to the main section which was overflowing with wave 4.4 (no Vader or CZ-4.) Knowing she's stocking for her store, I started grabbing every gold coin I could find.

I haven't seen a hint of Wave 4 yet, I did make toy runs the past 2 days but had done nothing for like a month before that.  Huge lapse between Wave 3 and the new stuff out now, here in NY.

I knew some waves were gonna have to be scrunched together because we were in August and only Wave 3 and some SL had been released.  The waves were gonna have to come double time to finish 30AC up by January.

MY local Target mistakenly marked down TAC and Legends waves to $2.99 and the comic packs to $4.99, so I bought up most of the supply mid week.  Most of the TAC were DS Troopers, so nice to be getting 12 of those for $3 each.

Anyway, the pegs were all but emptied out, so I stopped back today to find them full of W3 TAC and W3 Comic packs.  I got another Obi/Alpha pack for $5 + 5 Stormies and 2 Jawas for $3 each.  Sweet!

So my parents were nice enough to buy me the Y-Wing, considering it was the first time it is ever in Canada and there were not many left in my area, 2 maybe 3 left. But they were also nice enough to take it away from me and tell me i got to wait for christmas, I swear to God they have fun doing this to me, they should not have even told me about it, christmas is to far from now to wait, and I dont even want it to come, because once christmas comes that also means i have to start applying to universities and I am still unsure as of what I want to go into.

Picked up EU Holiday Special Fett at Amazon, the last figure I want from Wave 4. The thing is, I also pre-ordered the Limited Edition of Halo 3, which means I won't get my Fett until H3 ships- In about three weeks.

I thought it would be a couple of weeks before i found a Mcchewie but i found him at a local WM chillen with 1 Biggs and 1 vader. i found it cool only because the last time this WM stocked was in Feb. :o So i picked up 2 mchewie and left the other two figures on the pegs. All i need now is a jawa and i am all caught up...in the CDN collection that is.

I ended up picking up another McChewie this weekend at TRU.  I actually saw the first UGH figure ever at retail here (and Airborne Trooper), but ended up leaving it behind.  I had been spending enough lately, and just had enough cash for one figure, so opted for the McChewie.  I know I won't be able to get all of the UGHs, so I figured I'd stay away from the temptation.  If it had been a Han, Chewie, or Fett I'd probably have picked it up though just for the coin.

Lucky me tonight...  A buddy of mine picked up some wave 4 and 5 figures.

Of course, not one UGH or McQuarrie was on the pegs (guess who musta made a stop at WM earlier in the day I guess.  ::) ).  But I did get 2 Hermi Odle figures, 2 Yoda/Kybucks, Roron, 3PO w/Salacious, Tattoonakin.  Not a bad haul... 

I've yet to see one UGH figure so far, and I've yet to see most of Wave 4 or 5 on the pegs yet.  Legends Wave 2 and 3 are scarce as well.  Frustrating year collecting once we hit around July around me because, even Wave 3 is relatively scarce here.  Stormtroopers I see, but little else...

Hell, for that matter Wave 2 is scarce except for the Death Star Trooper.  You never see Honor Guards (of all figures) on the pegs. :(  And the Rebels "don't sell well"...  bull****.

In a noble act of redemption from the tyranny and oppression that was HTS.com's treatment of it's customer base during the McQuarrie exclusives debacle, I ordered 4 Darktroopers at midnight last night and they were shipped 9 hours later.

I would have ordered me some colored AOTC clones but apparently there are no promises to which will be sent.  With the ratio of officers to grunts being 1 green seargent to 9 grunts, 1 blue lieutenant to 36 clones, 1 red captain to 144 clones, and 1 yellow commander to 2,000+ clones, I didn't want to risk getting more than 1 red/yellow clone.  I already got about 6 greenies during Saga last year, I'm really in the market for about 3-4 blues.

I'm rambling.  I don't think I got the decaf I ordered at Dunkin' Donuts an hour ago.  I swear there's no consistency in the caffeine level at that joint.

the new Christmas line up for me now consists of another stormtrooper(which i bought with my own money >:( ) umpass stay, Miywoom(dont know the spelling), ugh AB trooper, battledroid two pack V1, darth maul, ROTS clone, SL c3po, SL Yoda. pretty good line up but you konw i only have to wait another 90 days to actually get them :-\

i have not gotten a SW figure in 2 weeks now, that i could actually open before having it taken away!

EDIT* my mother just got home and showed me TAC wave 4 Luke, Elis, another myioom(she didnt know my dad already bought me it) and another umpass(same story) All i need now is vader,CZ and boba and thats one whole wave for christmas and one big gap in my coin album that will bother me for a very long 3 months.

This is not a purchase just a find at WM today.  First the R2 Laptop, now there's a Vader Laptop (first I've seen).  It probably about twice the size of the R2 laptop.  If I remember correctly, the pricing is $50.  I'm sure this would be very cool for a kid.

I took a few snaps with my camera phone (sorry about quality):

I used to live in SoCal so you are dead on with going when the store first opens. I always had great luck at the Target on PCH in Manhatten beach. I hit that every morning on my way to Mattel.

Same crazy competition here in Chicago. If you do not go first thing forget it. Now its Hot Wheel scalper city, they have been beating me to the store. I really want the other 9 UGH's but this is really hard with so much extra competition from die-cast losers.

Well, to be fair, there was at least a 2 month gap between Wave 3 release and Wave 4, so if you figure that you saved up over the last month or two, the cost this month doesn't seem so terrible.  And unless you are building some massive armies, you probably didn't spend a grand on all of these.  At an average price of $7, that would be like 140+ figures or about 12 cases.  If you buy two of everything, you're probably out maybe half that, which is still a good chunk of change.   ;)

Anyway, I got my HTS order of 2 pit droids, 2 imp commanders, and a yellow SA Clone today.  They were in an undamaged box, but just loosely packed inside, so they got a little dinged, but not bad for about $5 per figure.  Note on the pit droids - I got the white version even though it said brown online.   ::)

Did it "say" brown or "show" brown?  ;) Since those figs share the same UPC it's a crap shoot as to which version you'd get.

Same-same for the Clone Trooper Officer figs.

Actually, it's definitely over a grand.  Maybe you didn't read all of my prior post(s), but I collect a minimum of three of each figure (carded, loose, diorama/custom fodder), and about double that (if not a little more) on army builders.  So 3 - 6 of each figure, at $7.18 ea, for waves 4 (just Vader & CZ), 5, 6, eight UGHs, 2 Legends waves (including variants) = $1,000+.  Sorry, I'm an auditor, and I'm pretty good at math.  ;)

This week (9/28 - 10/3):

16 TAC figures
11 Legends figures (so far)
-------------------
27 new basic figures
x3 (minimum) each
-------------------
81 basic figures

 8 UGH figures (still need 1 more)
x2 each (don't need extras of these)
--------------
16 UGH figures

That's 97 figures so far, not including any extras for army building, which already puts me at $696.46.

I count all 11 of the Legends figures as "army builders", plus CZ, General McQuarrie, and the Concept Snowtrooper, so that's 14 figures that I'd want additional extras of.  So an average of 3 each for those additional 14 figures, at $7.18 each = another $301.56.  That's cranks my total up to $998.02 now, then we add the several more figures that I wanted more than 6 of, and a few other HTF figure pickups for some buddies (which technically don't count towards my personal net total), puts me over $1,000, easy.

See, now aren't you glad you disputed my calculations?  Never question an auditor with OCD.  :P

(and yes, I buy way too much of this ****)  ::)

Damn Matt, and here I thought the last two days for me were a big hit to the wallet. You definitely took the cake there. 

For me the last two days have seen the most figures come in one fell swoop since ROTS..

Wednesday I got my 2 cases of Wave 4 from SWShop.com - 24 figures in all, some of which are being used in trades, so in the end I'll have retained only 16 of the figures.

Thursday I had a huge run at Wal-Mart, which in my area is a heart-attack inducing surprise. I was able to score...

Wave 6 (sans McQuarrie Snowtrooper) - Han, Lando, 4-LOM, Gen. McQuarrie
UGH - Vader and Biggs
Wave 4 - McVader and Luke
Wave 5 - Yoda w/ Kybuck
Legends - Darktrooper (2), Pit Droids (3), Biker Scout (2), Imperial Officer, Blue Clone Officer

Again some of those figures were for trading, so of the 18 I got yesterday, I'll be retaining 11. But at the end of the two days that was over $300 worth of figures, which to me was a big wow, but then Matt did his math up there.  ;D

Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on October 6, 2007, 02:06 AM
I hit a similar motherload to Force guy tonight...

I walked in, got all of wave 6 except (because I'm an ******* and simply walked away without him) Smuggler Lando.  Cool figure, but I doubt he's a tough find for long.  I got two Snowtroopers so I'm good there unless I get some extras...  They had a ton, but man I dropped $120 on just basic figures.  That pretty much shot the **** out of the old figure budget right there.  ::)

Besides wave 6, which was uber abundant, I picked up wave 4 and 5 figures i didn't get yet including both McQuarrie figures (Starkiller/Vader), Animated Fett, and CZ-3.  They had tons of EU figures...  Not quite as many Jabba's figures/Cantina figures, but still triples of each I'd say. 

They also had repacked McQuarrie Fett's, Chewbacca's, and I think McTroopers too...  I forget though.

Anyway, I haven't had a toy haul this nice since probably the 1990's...  Seriously, I find stuff here and there, sometimes a wave but rarely in abundance to get doubles and such till they're all "common".  This stuff though, there was just a friggin' ton on the pegs and in an aisle island display as well.  I had a figure erection.

I have to say too, these are some of the nicest figures since...  Well, since 2007 began because this year's been filled with some of the highest quality figures ever.  I'm not one to usually gush on Hasbro's efforts but stuff like the McSnowtrooper and 4-LOM just make your year I think.  Maybe I'm getting easier in my old age, I dunno.

OH!  And I also got Pit Droids (cream w/grey markings) and a blue Clone Lt. as well.  No Clean Sandtroopers in sight though... 

I'm gonna go play with pose my haul now.

Im so happy I'm not a sucker for all that  saga legends.

Wave 3 was about the only thing out for a few months, then this morning I went to Walmart and BAM, 2 endcaps full of Saga Legends, Waves 4,5,6  Somehow, I left with only 16 figures.  But I made sure to get the McQuarries and all of the figures that are tougher to find.  Once I hit $100 I started feeling real guilty and stopped putting **** in my cart.

Hermi Odle, McSnowie, Yoda with the buck, PreCyborg Grievous, and Roron Corrob are my favs.

That is the kind of find where it would be impossible to buy that stuff with your wife or girlfriend in tow.

Check your Walmarts for those endcaps.

I went to the flea market today and found Miiyoom (my first Wave 4 find) and an UGH Holiday Fett, both were at a very decent price!

Holiday Fett is really the only UGH variant I really wanted badly so now that I've found it I'd be fine if I never found any of the other UGHs.

Miiyoom is a terrific figure, now I need Elis who I think looks even better. If I can find CZ-4 and McVader I could probably be done with that wave.

I picked up a McVader at TRU this weekend.  They did actually have some UGH figures (Mace and Galactic Marine), but I had to pass them up.  I'd probably pick up an UGH if I found a Han or Chewie one, but otherwise I just don't want to start and then try to get them all.
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: I Am Sith on October 8, 2007, 12:24 PM
Made another huge score at one of the local TRU's.  Got the UGH Mace, Marine, and R2 figures, McVaders, SL Darktroopers, SL Red and Blue AOTC Clones, SL Tan Pit Droids, CZ-4s, Cantina Aliens, and SL Clone Commander.  All told, I bought 34 figures for myself, BrentS and for trades.

They must have had about 10 cases each of 30AC Wave 4.25 and the SL Wave with the Darktroopers.  With the amount they had, I could have easily bought another 34 figs!

Post by: Daigo-Bah on October 8, 2007, 07:51 PM
Finally lucked out today at a WM near work and bought:
1) CZ-4 (only one they had, need 2 more)
2) C-3PO and Salacious (only had one, only need one)
3) Hermi Odle (Yes!! I may repaint his skin tone a little though)
4) Jedi Luke (this is a second one I'm converting to DS2 Luke)

They also had most of the EU characters, but no McQuarrie figs and no Wave 6.  I'm still torn on whether to get McVader though.  If I do, I have to get McStarkiller online then.
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Force Guy on October 9, 2007, 12:53 AM
3) Hermi Odle (Yes!! I may repaint his skin tone a little though)

See, that's precisely the reason I passed on him.  Hermi Odle's skin should be more of a grayish tone, not pink.  It was a real turn off.  If you repaint his skin tone, would you please post pics? 

I made another trip to Wal-Mart today and picked up Torture Rack Han.  I also found/bought an UGH McFett.  First and probably only time I'll see one.

could have had a Mcvader to but after some debate i was able to get a "scalper" shop to reduce the price on him but she then destroyed the card back by bending it in half and then kicked me out of the store for refusing to buy it. it was too much as it was at $15 for the figure, but $15 for a damaged figure that she bought from the store right beside her, forget it.

I saw the weirdest mix of waves 1-6 at a WM that was completely empty of SW figures just days ago.  They had a couple 4-LOMs, one General McQuarrie (no other wave 6), no Hermi but did have C-3PO w/Salacious, several Jedi Lukes, and several CZ-4s among all the other earlier waves.  Really looked like revision cases, because I strongly doubt that many CZ-4s and 4-LOMs would remain with only 1 General McQuarrie and no Smuggler Landos, if it was due to other customers or scalpers...

Got my Wave 5 case from BrentS today.  Love this wave!!!  Sucks that I didn't get a McVader with this Rev, but I'm glad I don't have to track this down at retail.

*edit* BrentS just got me a Yellow SL Clone Officer on a run this afternoon and my mother (god love this woman) got me another Yellow SL Clone Officer, a 4-LOM, and a General McQuarrie when she was out shopping this afternoon.  From the conversation, it sounds like she just missed a bunch of McSnowies and Dark Troopers too as there was a woman with a cart full of figures in the aisle when she got there.

Next time you're flipping through a magazine and come across a Prozac or Zoloft ad, rip it out and bring it by her store.  Just walk in, hand it to her, and leave.  No conversation necessary.

it was initially marked at $20 (double price in CDN) i was able to get her to mark it down to $15.  at first i asked if their was anyway to reduce the price because it was very high and she said no, then i pretty much asked her if she ordered boxes, she said yes, but then i brought up the fact that the figures she was selling were the rare ones that the WM next store should have gotten in considering the cases they had out. right away she offered me $15 so i already knew she was scalping. she looked pissed. after i gave her the money she bent the card in half. when i asked what she was doing she said it was so it would fit in a bag, yet the bag was pretty big, so i told her to forget it and give my money back. she got mad at me and for a bit she refused to give it back, but as some customers behind me started to listen in she finally gave me the money and told me to get out of her store.

2 Vaders
3 Maces
1 Airborne
1 McChewie

Also, saw the Galactic Heroes Battle of Hoth and Battle of Naboo scene packs.  They were $25 each, a bit overpriced for me now.  May be I'll pick them up later.

Yeah, that was messed up. If she would have refused to give you the refund, I would have walked out of the store with a replacement figure, let her call the cops and have her explain how she stole your money.

I realize that it's not 30AC related, but I really didn't know where to post this.  I ended up buying the Star Wars 2008 Desk Calendar at Kohls today when I was on a figure run.  This year's theme is 'The Art of Star Wars.'  I busted it open as I couldn't wait until 2008 and was shocked at how many McQuarrie concept drawings there were.  I figured that it would mostly be newer artists, but there were a TON of his sketches in there.

Unlike this year's calendar with the movie stills (some severly out of order with the movie timeline), this is a very well done calendar.  I recommend getting this if you truely are a fan of SW art.

I picked up my first ever UGH figure this weekend, the Han Solo at TRU.  I've actually seen a few of the gold coined figures this year, after never seeing a single UGH last year - and always said "well, I'll pick up a Han or Chewie if I ever happen to see them".  Our local TRU had two each of Han and Luke, so I grabbed a Han to keep with the carded Han collection I have going.  They (the UGHs) do seem to be a little easier to find this year.  They still sell quickly, but like I said I never saw a single one last year, and I think I've seen about a dozen this year.

Believe me - I have been doing a lot of impulse buying!  Unfortunately the price went back up to normal today and they have 12+ cases of Wave 6 in back, so I guess I can avoid that Target for the next six months.    ::)

Picked up a set of wave 4 Comic packs at Target this morning!

Wow, that was fast!  I seriously missed the boat on stocking up on cheap basic figs and comic packs.  I could have grabbed a bunch of extras on the cheap and returned them as I acquired new stuff.  Oh well.

Managed to pick up a spare Imp Officer and Biker Scout at Target because I can't help but troop build when I see these guys.

I got my HTS order #1 today - 2 Dark Troopers, 1 Pit Droid (gray), and 2 sets of Star Cases.  Of course, now that I've changed my mind on certain collections I may not need my Star Cases.

This order was using the 25% off / Free shipping so I was glad to see it went through.

Just wanted to update on the earlier order I placed with HTS.com.  At the time, I had enough ($25 plus) to qualify for the "free figure" - a VTSC Endor Leia.  I received that figure by itself today in the mail.  Kind of surprised they didn't just save it to ship with the rest of the order (that is supposed to be shipping today, 10/24) - but it came to the doorstep free of charge, so that's ok.  I'm a little more concerned that although the discount/free shipping code did work for me when I checked out, that I'm not going to receive that.  We'll see I guess.  Did anyone receive their orders yet from those big days of restocking a week or two back at HTS?

I got so pissed at target today ( FYI my Target has the same figures as yours) They have like 10 pegs and like 3 figures hanging on each one. So I took all the Tac figures( I say TAC because they still have Saga figures pegwarmers the nemodian) and placed them on two pegs. I know they hate that, but I dont care.  Khols is becoming my fav place to get figures, I bought RA-7 there this morning.  They also had the the silver c3po look a like, and Scout Trooper.

Yes!  Found the wave 6 Han and Lando at a WM today.  I had already bought 4-LOM and General McQuarrie, so I left those.  I was tempted to get the concept McQuarries there too: they had a Boba, Starkiller, and Snowtrooper, but I keep deciding against buying that sub-line.

I ordered two red ones about a month ago and received white, so be careful.  I believe the UPCs are the same on all three.  I did hear of someone ordering the red ones more recently and they sent the right figs, so hopefully you will get orange.

Im going to ENJOY next year so much! I have/ will have completed the last 3 carded series including exclusives, next year no more repacks/repaints! When I see a figure I like I will buy it, I will not feel the need to get figures I dont like just to complete the series. I have alreayd said Im not going to buy the Obi/Vader from wave one. I alreay have the Lava reflective figures Target did a couple years ago, and I think those figures will go good with the Lave Platform/panning droid.

The coolest thing happened today. I walked into TRU looking for some wave 4(UGHS or Vader) and found nothing but stocked pegs of peg warmers. Then a TRU employee stocking the toy section came to me and asked if there were any figures I was looking for All I did was point at animated Fett and he brought out a full box of wave 4 asked if there was any other figures i was looking for but I said it was ok. in the end I came home with:

UGH Marine
UGH Luke
UGH Han
UGH R2
McVader

I had an UGH Mace in my hands too butI decided I didnt want to spend to much and also considering the fact I could only afford 3 and my sis was buying the rest I didnt want her to spend any more money on me. But it really was great when an employee comes to you and asks to go to the back instead of the other way around.

I received a set of Wave 7 via BBTS last night, so aside from the Fel/Hobbie comic pack (and counting on a few things shipping from HTS), I think I'm all caught up.  There are a few extras I'd like to grab if I see them, but other than that I think I'm almost set.  Of course, Wave 8 will probably hit next week :P.  I had to cancel my preorder for that wave just worried that we'd see another shipping extravaganza in November, and we can't have another credit card bill like that :).  I guess some downtime would be ok for a few weeks here, because it looks like Thanksgiving to Christmas could be hammer time.

I have to caulk that one up to pure luck. I never go to KB, let alone walk in at the exact moment that they're stocking mid-day. I had to run to the mall looking for a piece to a Halloween costume, so naturally I popped in. The luckier thing is, my wife sent me to the wrong mall. The one she meant to send me to doesn't even have a KB.

1 Jango Fett with poncho (Can't wait to open it)
1 Destroyer Droid with shield (Awesome big package)
1 Voolviff Monn (Looks Great!)
 After that ordeal, i cruised on over to TRU and found a UGH Airborne trooper and UGH Holiday Fett, and the capture of the Droid factory battlepack. A buddy of mine that works there told me that someone had just bought clone attack on Couruscant (did i spell that right?) and Hunt for Grievous battle packs. Oh well, no big deal...I still scored today.

I landed the Target Exclusive Endor and Hoth $50 Battle Packs today thanks to a tip from a friend.  They are HUGE!  Not a bad deal for all that you get, but hard to lay down $100 like that.

Just used the DPCI.  I called ahead and asked if they could check on an item.  The operator connected me with Toys and the guy found a location in the stockroom.  What's interesting is that they put out the leftover packs on the top shelf a few aisles down from the Star Wars figs, presumably just because there was space for them there.  Might be worth the few extra steps to check out other aisles next time you're at Target!

Ya it sucked you could only buy one of each, cause all I needed was one more figure and I would have got free shipping + some Spiderman toy. I must have hit it just at the right time. Well one wave down one more to go....I dont trust Hasbro with this 7.5 wave, I have a feeling they are going to short change the wave and it will end up being really hard to complete. I think Hasbro wants to be done with these coins ASAP!

I agree with Darth Anton - last year the "repaint" waves were quite plentiful - especially at WalMart (at least in my area) and they shipped many times over.

I think that waves 7, 7.5 and 8 will be just as plentiful as the previous waves in the TAC.

p.s. Got the Mandalorian Battlepacks/Figure Sets from EE this morning. Makes up for coming up empty on my Black Friday toy run.

Well one thing "the coins" I think Hasbo hates these things and wants to be finished with them ASAP! and lets not forget the 7.5 was only created to fill the void of the Force Unleshead. and consider usually by this time of the year the average collector has finshed or is very close to getting all the figures, not true this year. And we now have to compete against the holidays shoppers. I hope I'm wrong..but..

So everything is based on speculation, not informed observation of any kind. Informed observation dictates the following:

Hasbro does care about the coins. They took the time to replace all the coins less scuffed coins to satisfy consumer complaints. This held up distribution foe two months. They also offer to replace damaged coins. They're not going to put themselves in the same situation by shortchanging the last wave.

I don't know what the replacement wave has anything to do with quantity made. Hasbro has strived to make the same run of figures in every wave for the past three years. There is no indication of this changing.

The only reason why collectors would be nearly finished by this time of year is because of a smooth year in distribution. Not so this year as stated above. And what does this have to do with wave 7.5 being short runned?

Finally, holiday shopped means more product on the shelves for people to buy.

Not to derail the thread, but Hasbro hasn't actually replaced anybody's scuffed coins yet.  I remember them talking about it quite frequently at the conventions, yet to my knowledge, they never actually did so.  No address was given, no details were distributed, and nothing seemed to have come of it.  Someone else even mentioned it in Pawlus' Q&A over at GH either last week or the week before. 

And just to add to the thread, to paraphrase "Spaceballs": I ain't found ****.   >:(

One of the local Targets put out an endcap full of the UBPs this morning at $49 each.  I definitely like the Hoth one more than the Endor BP figures wise and based on what comes in the set.  The canon in the Hoth set is nice.  The Target also had the newest SW Transformers wave which I picked up.

Haven't even opened the Hoth pack, but lemme tell you the astromech in the ARC battlpack is kickass.  Great paintjob/deco in general.  But I liked the clone paintjobs too...  they're quite colorful, and the story for them on the back is unique I thought.  I know everyone's cloned out, but these were actually decent.

McQuarrie snowtrooper x 4
Poncho clone x 3 (I will put SA AOTC helmets on them, hate this helmet.  Also, the black line above the visor on the helmet is missing, is that something for you variant hunters? Not into that stuff)
7th legion clone x 4 (surprisingly love this figure)
Rebel bazooka (with figure accessory) x 2
Red Naboo hangar tech x 2

Did not get any McSolos yet.  >:(

Friend of mine snagged one for me though, still need two of those and one each of the others.

Like an idiot, I'm filling two albums this year - one with all silver coins and one exactly the same only the 13 gold coins are in that one. I know, I know - I'm nuts. I think Hasbro did this to me on purpose. If they had put out an album with slots for 100 coins instead of 80, there would have been enough space for everything and then some. Since there isn't enough room for all exclusive, UGH and Saga Legends coins in the 20 spare spaces, that is why I got the second album. Of course, I only have my own OCD to blame for feeling compelled to fill the rest of the empty slots.  ;D

Thanks for posting that code. I got 2 Tychos and two 2-pack of Ewoks. I had to place two orders of one each since there was a limit. Still the orders each came to $11.96 each. Less than $6 per fig! That's better than retail!!

I hope they get some more of the clones in from 7.5 and some of the Mcfigs for 7 and 7.5. It would be nice to save some more money and know I was going to get them without the hassle of going out during the holiday buying rush.

Again, thanks Dressel Rebel for posting that link. I'm going to custom those figs, so saving a little on them works greatly to my advantage.

Also got my order from HasbroToyShop which included 2x TAC Jawa, 1x TAC Moisture Vaporator w/Luke, 1x TAC Han w/Torture Rack, 2x 7th Legion Clonetrooper, Titanium BSG Set from SDCC, Titanium AT-RT (Camo Deco), and Titanium White/Gray Darth Vader TIE.

Since my Target, like most everybody elses, hasn't received anything past wave 5 revisions, I've had to resort to eBay (and my friend Dave that hits Wally at 5am) for the last 4 waves of TAC.
Now if I could only get the Vanguard and 4 each of the Hawkbat & 7th Legion, I'll be DONE this year.....oh, and the Y-wing and TIE Bomber.....oh oh, and the GH Jabba's palace......oh oh oh...nevermind.

I saw the Cantina Galactic Heroes AND 3 3/4 Jabba's band pack sets at WM last night and passed. I thought about it for a minute then came to the conclusion that I could wait for these an if I never get them I'll be cool with it.

Also passed on a grey TIE Bomber at Target. They had plenty of ARC-170 and ARC 170 battle packs. Passed on those too. Really hoping these sets will come down in price as I need another pilot and wouldn't mind just a few more of the clones to make a big squad to put in my Gunship.

Agreed - what a great custom diorama.

I was so excited about it, the first thing I did when I got home was to try the head-swap between the Rebel Honor Guard and Tycho - alas, Daigo must have modified the Rebel Honor Guard head because unless you make the hole for neck ball deeper in the head, it looks like the new figure has a giraffe's neck!

Dammit, I told myself I wouldn't buy the McQuarrie line, because I wasn't interested in "rejected" designs  :-\.  But last week I bought a McVader, and today I actually saw one McBoba and I knew it would probably be the last time I could find one in stores, so I got it.  I also bought a Titanium orange deco B-Wing fighter.

Hit the mother-load of Wave 8 at Toys R Us last night.

Scored enough figures to cover both myself and a friend, here's the run-down of what I grabbed:

5x Jango Fett w/Poncho & Removeable Armor
5x Fireside Padme Amidala
5x Voolvif Monn
10x Destoryer Droid (Droideka) w/Half Energy Shield
10x Clone Trooper (Training Fatigues)
10x McQuarrie Concept Rebel Trooper

Kind of an expensive evening.

All I need are five Hawkbat Battallion clones and I can finally put the TAC collection to bed.

I got two McSnowies from a Hasbro toys shop purchase. Strangely I didn't get the McHan I ordered yet. They said it was backstocked, yet I saw it up for sale a few days AFTER I placed my order....minor frustrations here.
While not TAC, I did get a concept "Airspeeder" (The snowspeeder-like one from the POTF2 line) on eBay for cheap.

My weeks pick ups include: Half of the WalMart Jabba entertainers set (dancers) I have the other half which happend to be the orginal vinatage set from ROTJ. I also picked Quilan Vos Comic pack, I know it took me a while but I had a gift card from TRUS  so I said why not! I think the Comice packs are one the best ideas Hasbro has come up with in a long time.  Looks like I'm about ready to wrap up 07' and look foward to 08' where I can be more picky about what I buy. ;D

Yeah, if nothing else I expect to see TAC on clearance at Target when they shift over to the new DPCIs.  Sounds like a big reset is scheduled right after Christmas, so we'll see.  I'm actually pretty close - I just want a few more Hawkbats, 3x Rebel McTroopers, and maybe a few Wave 8 on better cards/bubbles.  Everything else I already have or am in the process of trading for.   :D

More of a recent sighting since I did no buying...

A local Wal*Mart had quite a few Ep III Battle Arenas out for sale, as well as a lone CommTech 1999 Episode I Anakin Skywalker. Must've really given the backroom a good cleaning after Christmas.

Very nostalgic, actually, since that was the Wal*Mart I went to for Episode I's midnight madness. What is it about toys you haven't seen in a while that makes you want to buy them?

I just ran to Target at Lunch not expecting to find anything but as I glanced over at the clearence asle stairing at me was a endor Battle pack.   I took it to a price scanner and low and behold it scanned for $12.25.    ;D ;D ;D

This must have been hidden or stuck in the stockroom. because I hit that Target at least three times a week and I never saw either at Full Price.   

I also talked to the toy dept personel and they are starting to reset all the asle again.   and will be getting new product on soon. (Exactly when he couldn't tell me)  But they already put out new Zizzle Pirate of the Caribbean figures and playset?  they are no longer 3 3/4 scale and are all cartoony looking  almost like a 5" force battler.   Pass

I received my order from HTS and got the Hawkbat Clone, Holo Vader, and McQuarrie Rebel.  Aside from eventually grabbing the Vanguard Troop (or just the coin), I'm all caught up on 2007 TAC.  I'll admit that there's a few figures from Wave 7.5 that I probably would have skipped if it wasn't for the coin album  ::).  Now I'm just on the lookout for the Wal-Mart comic packs until 2008 stuff starts showing up.  Our local store's pegs are packed full of older packs though, so I'm not real hopeful.

We went to the Wal-Mart on the other side of town this weekend and they actually had the exclusive comic packs.  I picked up a Fett/DSD pack, which they had several (8 or more) of.  They had 1 of the Twins sets, and no Keller/Marine sets at all - kind of strange, but I guess someone must be army building.
Title: Wally packs in the Clearence Asle
Post by: ctonra on January 21, 2008, 10:36 AM
Hey all
         I came across something strange today on my morning toy run.  I stopped by Walmart and looks like the did a plan-o-gram reset for the toys.  The comic packs got their price increase to 10.88.  But here is the strange part I hit the Clearence Asles and found the Exclusive packs there.  Five Kellers and two Fetts.  I scanned one set and they scanned for 9.88 still.   and they also finally lowered the Vintage down a buck(wow).   I hiked back over the the toy section to scan another comic pack and they indeed scan at 10.88.   humm   They also had the new 2" (Force unleased) unleased battlepacks out and Sabers.  I passed on them but I guess this means The Big H is going foward with releasing The FU stuff. I got to army build my Keller's squad and left two packs for someone else plus the fetts.   I am going to hit another Wally during lunch to see if this is just a rouge wally or not.   hopefully someone else spots this too.

I finally found the Wal-Mart Exclusives tonight. I picked up one of each comic set. I had a clone set in my hand that I was going to get as an opener, but because I am trying to cut back I went ahead and left it. I also grabbed one of the Jabba's sets on clearance for $18. Not a horrible deal I guess. I never did have any of the Max Rebo sets so I was able to stomach the old sculpts.

That being said, Pete, don't waist your $80 on those ships. Save it for new stuff later this year, or items that you'd like a lot more in your collection.

I just ordered the Wal-Mart sets on line too.   They have a "ship to store" option, so you can get free shipping.  What's odd, is that there is no tax, so the whole thing cost me 29.64.  That's cheaper than actually buying them in the store. Wal-Mart is a bit too far away for me to just go looking and hoping that the exclusives are there, so this is a great way to do it.

Just to clear it up "ship to store" means I pick it up at my (not so ) local Wal-mart.

I'm torn on coins versus stands.  I thought the coins were really cool as well - they look great in package and in the album.  However, I think the basic stands are pretty nifty, and actually useful if you open up your figs and want to display them loose.  What I'm dreading is the  BAF pieces.  ::)

Hey all
I stopped by wollyworld on my way to work today to find they have put out Wave 1 plus parts of waves 7.5 & 8 with Mc clammies and Mc Snowies???  Any way wave one does not scan in wally's computers yet with the exception of the Kashyyyk Troopers, which scan at 5.88.  all the other figures do not.  7.5 and the mctoopers ring up at 6.63.   But seeing as wave one has all the same assortment #.   They rang them up as 5.88 for me instead of the differnt assortment for the other waves.  ;D.   Also all the older waves still have coins and not stands only wave 1 came with stands.  and finally it looks like they are getting stock in for an end cap display or one of the center alse shelves. 
They all came in a black shelf displa box that sits nicely on an endcap.  three deep and four across.   the waves are mixed though the display.   I found everyone but Vader and gree?? Strange I thought I would find vader first.  Picked up two kashyyks troopers and two tri-droids as well as more mc clammies and jango with removable armour.   as well as 21b, obi-wan, panning droid and po nudo.  Happy hunting.  I am going to hit another wally and target at lunch see if i can find gree and vader and more tri-droids and K troopers

Any way wave one does not scan in wally's computers yet with the exception of the Kashyyyk Troopers, which scan at 5.88.  all the other figures do not.  7.5 and the mctoopers ring up at 6.63

In case you haven't ordered from Walmart.com before - just be advised that they slap a huge sticker on the back of your item. Not sure if they do this if you're shipping the item directly to your house, but if you use the site-to-store option they do this - so don't ever use the site-to-store option if you're hoping for a MOC item to arrive.

Since these were both going to be opened, it made no difference to me.

Always nice to see 'em...  A way better figure in person too, than on the pegs.  I really think the design of the helmet inspired Hasbro to try their hand at a multi-piece Vader helmet...  The neck piece of the McRebel just reminds me inside of Vader's mouth piece to his helmet so much.

Good to hear these are coming in, but I had to get help getting an orange set of the 1st series, so I'm a little concerned on these now as I had such a bitch of a time finding the orange, and ultimately the red ones too which I only saw once...  Grey I saw semi-often. 

Why would they make these, of all things, hard to find?  Or the Dark Trooper, a fan's choice figure?  That's just dumbness.

MetalJedi, did the PD's have a Capt. Rex sticker offer on the package?  Just curious.

Yes they did.

(http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c196/inkedjediknight/pitdroids.jpg)

The other figures that I saw that had the CW offer was the Biker Scout, Geonosis 3P0, Shocktrooper, Vader, R2, Yoda and Red Battle Droids.

It's cool to get a longer chance at some of those clones too.  Shocktroopers weren't abundant here, so I'll take some more maybe if $$$'s extra this year.  Thanks for the snapshot MJ, that's helpful too...  Should be a neat promo and it means there's more to look for right now too.  Oh joy. :)

Found and picked up a 2-1B figure at Wal-Mart this morning.  Nothing else new on the pegs, aside from some 2007 Wave 8 figures, and lots of the Wave 7.5 repainted Clone and older Saga Legends (and even older TSC Jerjerrods and Naboo Soldiers).

Picked up the v2 Pit Droids in the White w/Gray Stripe variety. Need one more of those and two more each of the other two colors in the v2 variety and I can consider the pit droids "done".

Have there been any reports of the TSC Body Sandtrooper w/Black Pauldron and clean paint-op showing up in these new waves that are shipping with the Captain Rex offer on the bubble?

They were all found in Canada :o
It was the first time I saw this case assortment actually at a WM that didnt have a signle figure for 9 months last year...I know the darktrooper case is out at other WMs as well havent been able to track that one down yet.

But yes all the figures were on CDN card with a Fans choice sticker on it in English, French, and Mexican (?) They are only out at Zellers and WM..atleast in my area some other people have been finding them at TRU though as well. These were found in Mississauga Ontario btw. I guess this means we are getting more cases of wave 5 and legends figures instead of Tac 08 wave 1. hope this helps Morgbug!

Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Darth_Ice on February 17, 2008, 05:45 PM
Look at vintage figures, they charged 11.99 while everyone else, except for Kaybee, had there prices around 10.00. Lets not foget the 12.99 for the "exclusives".  One good thing about Target is they do clearence things out fast, I mean I did get the UBP Endor for 12.99 (==)
 I think its Targets attempt to get rid of the collectors.  To be fair to Target, Hasbro did set the retail price at 11.99. That is what they charge over at HTS, it just sucks that I have to shop at WalMart now for my Star Wars stuff.

Picked up the Fett Legacy evolutions set at Target this afternoon.  The fact that Boba is missing his chest insignia is disappointing.  The bantha skull emblem is set too low on his shoulder, too.  Oh well.  Almost picked up the Sith Legacy set.  That Darth Nihilus figure looks pretty nice, but I have no need for Chippendale Maul or Darth Flamehead.

Found Clone in training fatigues and picked up another Holo Vader at Target today. I also looked for Fett legacy, but no luck. I tried using the DPCI # and was told by the manager that "they don't pull high demand collectibles off the shelf". I argued that this item in question was not a high demand collectible as it's not a Target exclusive, but in stores everywhere. She shrugged her shoulders, and said "sorry, that's our policy".
I was in the store 5 times last week and she saw me everyday, I was hoping she'd help.

I couldn't find the orange set for the life of me from the first series, and finally pulled a favor with someone on another board that I knew with a set.  With this set, I've seen all 3 colors 3 times now, usually in the same wave it seems.  I was pleased to buy red and grey at one time, then I found orange a couple days later at the same store...

It really does feel good when you complete this set.  I don't know why, or if it's that feeling of how rare these once were and now you've got them...  It's good having them now.

Walmart - Figrin & Modal Nodes on clearance for $6.00, finally bought one cuz that's a good price just for the head and hands for customs.

TRU - Fett Legacy, Qui-Gon/Swan/Luke, Sith Evolutions packs.  Skipped TFO, I really only wanted the Jedi and that's not worth 20 rocks IMO.  I am stoked about the Fett set.  Qui Gon's head sucks, gonna have to do something about that.  But a great bunch of figures overall.

I purchased Pax Bonkik at TRU today. Cool figure!  :)

There was a Hasbro rep stocking the pegs there (mostly with Force Unleashed lightsabers and those 2" Unleashed packs). I talked to him and he said he was surprised at how bad the distribution of the newer stuff (I'm assuming Wave 1 and 2, and Mighty Muggs) was at retail, and that he hadn't seen anything past the AOTC wave anywhere he had been that morning. I told him I'd been having trouble finding some of the newer stuff (Mighty Muggs!) as well. The shelves have really been bare in the past couple weeks here in SJ.  :-\

I picked up the Lt. Jundland/Lt. Shan comic pack this weekend at WM, and received the Jedi and Fett Evolutions sets via BBTS yesterday.  I saw the Jedi set at Target as well, and just about picked it up, but couldn't justify another whole set for basically just an extra Qui-Gon (I don't care if I have extras of the other two).  It was tempting though, nice to finally have a SA Qui-Gon Jinn.

I've found wave 1 about 3 times now out here...  Wave 2 is a little too new to have made the rounds in Pittsburgh though...  We just got the $20 vehicles in this past week, and really Wave 1's been scarce here only hitting stores sporadically at best.  Some areas around the city I guess haven't seen them much, if at all.

I'm glad I got 99% of what I want for right now. I have a feeling these SL's w/ Captain Rex sticker are going to be come major peg warmers. How stupid and greedy of Hasbro to think people are going to buy these repacks for the 3rd sometimes 4th time just to get a freaken mail in figure? They could have waited for the finale 5 SL to do this offer.  I mean I do not open my figures, but a lot of people do and keeps the cards, so the do not need to buy these even to get the figure. Stupid Hasbro.

I have to admit, I thought people were exaggerating about founding the SL SA 501st in such quantity. Then I walked into one of my WM's in the middle of the afternoon, and what do I find? A ton of SL SA 501sts.

I can really care less what you swore. I purposely included my Joe finds along with my 30th SW finds to give a heads up to the other members here who collect Joes. In fact, I have had 4 recent Joe trades with members who post here. Last time I checked you are not the moderator of the thread.

Are you that offended I included my Joe finds or are your panties still in a bunch from the Sarlacc Pit? I'm sure it's the latter of the two. It's pretty pathetic that your life is that boring that you can still carry a grudge against me months later. I know it's hard for you to do, but try to think before you open your big mouth. I have read you rabble in several threads, you should really practice what you preach. I suggest you focus on your own habit of being off topic before you are quick to point out mine or anyone else's for that matter.

No, I'm not a moderator, and no, I'm not holding a grudge, but I do know how to read.  This thread is entitled, "Recent 30AC Purchases," not "Recent 30AC Purchases and Miscellaneous purchases."  If it was the "Recent 30AC Purchases and Miscellaneous purchases" thread, my last post would've read like this:

Hey thanks for theG.I joe update some of us do collect them also

Well guess what?  In the community section of these boards, there's an "Other Toy Lines" section.  And look, genius.  A GI Joe Toys Thread (http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=2481.0).
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on March 6, 2008, 08:25 PM
Let's drop the fighting and get back to posting finds... 

For the record I doubt we'd gripe if you include some random other toy finds WITH your STar Wars scores.  Posting only that you found this or that other toy line would probably lead to mods stepping in to keep it on topic, but so long as you post what you found for Star Wars, we'll let it go.

It is of course a good idea to keep the GI Joe thread that Force Guy linked to as the GIJ home with finds there and stuff, just because it reaches all the Joe collectors here on the boards I'm sure, whereas this thread may not.  I know a lot of guys that gave up SW for Joe stuff ironically.

That was my exact thought when I posted my joe finds.

Agreed, but I already did post my Joe finds in that specific thread right after my initial post in this one. (See post #1097 9:24am today) Force Guy, as usual, is bringing nothing productive to the table with that link. It's a pathetic attempt to distract the fact that he was being an petty ******* by spotlighting what nobody else was or would be bothered by into his vindictive comment.

No, I'm not a moderator, and no, I'm not holding a grudge, but I do know how to read. 

Correct, you are not the moderator, you are just an agitator. Yes you do hold a grudge and that's great you can read but you are reading between the lines too much. You literal shtick is old please get a new one.
For the CEO of Personal Jabs Inc you sure cannot eat what you like dish out.

Back on topic, I found both sets of the TFU Wal-Mart 3 packs along with some other figures from another Hasbro line that I cannot mention in this thread....it may upset some people......

Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on March 6, 2008, 11:18 PM
As far as I'm concerned the matter's dealt with and not a big deal...  Like I said JACK, the posting of a GIJ find with your Star Wars find was AOK...  It's helpful and that's cool.  The reference to the GIJ thread is just so everyone knows not to neglect it too is all...  A second post in the GIJ thread wouldn't hurt things.

I'd suggest for everyone involved that anything in the Sarlacc Pit stay there.  That's one of the rules and we're going to be strictly enforcing that.  It's best not to even bring that section up outside of it, at all, in matters like this.  Two people can not like each other and get along fine on these boards I'm sure, so I'd say it's time to just ignore one another for the rest of the board's sake.

The posting of the GIJ find was fine because it was part of a broader purchase that included Star Wars.  That should settle the topic I hope guys.

I was surprised too. They were stocking the shelves and had 4 I bought 2 of the sets and sold them to my friend who was looking for them. They did not ring up at the register so it was a bit of a battle in the end I paid 10.88 per ste, same as the comic packs. Start checking the stores. Honestly they are nothing special and that's why I passed on them for myself. Nice value though.

Using DCPI on Saturday I snagged 2 Target Kashyyyk Battlepacks and the Aayla fighter. 

FYI - I checked systems for Rancor and Order 66 sets at 3 locations, none were in any of the 3 the stockrooms.

Post by: JangoTat on March 17, 2008, 10:04 PM
found a TAC 08 Obi and  Po Nudo.

the TRU i found these at was really lacking in figures. it looks like they packed up all but three pegs of their saga stuff and they sold out of all there waves 6-8 waves and only had 1 Po Nudo left when i was done. besides that no army builders either. damn i should have picked up Ani when i had the chance.

The best part of it all was that there was literally 3 times the amount of figures on thursday. The Y-wings are also back...

Found my first en masse selection of 2008 Wave 1 and 2 today at Walmart.  Bought:

4 x Kashyyyk clone trooper
2 x Tri Droid
1 x Battle Damaged Vader
2 x panning droid
1 x Gree
-------------------------
8 x SA 501st

And now I think I'm pretty much done for a few months!!  I'll pick up a few Kashyyyk clones here or there, but I'm not interested in any other Force Unleashed figures at all.  A much needed break in the toy runs - i'll nab some Kashyyyk clones when I'm out grocery shopping only.  The gas has been a bitch.

found some more wave 1 at my local Wm. it was wierd though because they had all the figures except for Ani and the other older wave figures that come in the case. But im not complaining i was finally able to find Gree and the K-Troopers. Nine more K-troopers and Ani till i finish wave 1...then off to hunt for wave 2 which has also been hitting TRU's in canada.

you guys though it was bad with 2 waves coming out around the same time eh? lol Try waves 6-8 and 1-2 alll in the span of 3 weeks.

they have been showing up around Canada. mostly at zellers though. But they are a little different then the online exclusives because they have clear visors....which sucks because since it doesnt line up with their eyes all you see is their foreheads... i havent found one yet but have heard a lot of reports of them being seen...in very small numbers in my area.

I already had a complete set of 2008 Wave 1 from an order with HasbroToyShop.com - so now I can finally open some up. A friend of mine scored me a Gree and I'm going to be swimming in Kashyyyk Troopers once my two Wave 2 Rev 2 cases come from EE, so I can finally put this wave to bed.

I find this figure too short to buy 10 and the fact that the torso joint likes to stay in a hunched position really bugs me.

Decided to try the DCPI for Order 66 at 2 Targets out of sheer boredom.  The 1st Target refused to bring them out, although they had them, because "they'd get fined," but found someone in the Automotive Department of the 2nd Target to bring me out a case.  I split the case up with 2 other collectors, and furnished them with $5 off coupons to boot.

I'm surprised you'd let crap like that fly. It's one thing to state a street day, it's another to lie altogether. I'd bet you could have gotten them to bring out the whole lot.


The "new" vehicles hit Target finally. I picked up the Blue Obi-Wan starfighter and a stray Vill pack from Order 66.

I hear you.  But I've never worked for Target and don't know any company policies.  I thought he was bullshitting, but I couldn't prove it.  Taking that into consideration, I really didn't have an argument (that I could win anyhow.)

At any rate, it was 15 minutes to the next Target, and I got them there.

We've all been lied to by store employees for about 10 years anyhow.  Everything from "all we have is what's out on the floor" to "oh that Star Wars line was discontinued" to "i'll get in trouble if I sell those to you".

Pretty big weekend for purchases here.  I stopped by our local Target, and they had set the front endcap exclusive (Star Wars, Joe, TF), so I picked up 5 of the 6 Order 66 packs (passed on the Luminara set, at least for now).  Then, when we made our "grocery run" to the Super Target across town, I found the entire Force Unleashed wave (except for Maris Brood), and picked up BD Vader, the troopers, Shadow Guard, and Juno Eclipse.  Aside from possible extras, and a couple of figures from the newest Saga Legends wave, I think I'm caught up on the basic figure line until the July release.

You should have grabbed 2 more figures, divided the order into 2, and used 2 coupons!!

It's crafty, and you get 2 free figures.

You should have grabbed 2 more figures, divided the order into 2, and used 2 coupons!!

It's crafty, and you get 2 free figures.

 :)

I know, I know - I thought about it - the only problem was that there wasn't anything they had that I wanted. If they had brought out a case with multiples of the TFU troopers, I would have.

TRU was having a BOGO sale so i took in some reciepts to get some money back....but the manager wouldnt let me and she said i had to return the figures and all that fun stuff, so i told her i would just rebuy the figures anyways and she said i wouldnt be able to :-X she was being an idiot. so Ill probably just go to another TRU and bring some doubles to do the switch and get my money back plan.

However I did buy a destroyer droid with shield and a clone trainie. I really wanted to finish my shield off and the clone was the only other army builder they had.

3x Shadow Stormtrooper
3x Utapau Shadow Trooper
3x Covert Ops Trooper
2x Zev Senesca
1x Commander Neyo

I really didn't need a Neyo to open, I picked up four opener sets of the Saleucami battle pack from last year so there wasn't any need to grab him again. I mostly scored the figures I did to finish out the number of Gold and Black Chrome EU coins for my albums.

So now if I can just find one of the Saga Legends Sandtroopers w/a Black Pauldron, I can finally put the carded TAC/Saga Legends line to rest.

The Rancor is actually supposed to be part of the aisle revision  - so say the forum members who work at Target. Sounds like they're not getting a display and the Order 66 stuff will be shelved in the main aisle with them as well.

Picked up a SL Utapau trooper and Neyo at Target this morning.  The store also restocked some of the $20 battlepacks (HFG, Betrayal at Bespin, etc.) which I have not seen at Targets recently.

I noticed some battle packs at our Target this weekend for the first time in a long time as well.  They had the Betrayal at Bespin and Droid Factory Capture sets on the shelf.

I found a Target w/clearance crappola so I returned a bunch of stuff and replaced it with clearance purchases.  Love my Target Rancor, but he's cooler  at $10 off.  Loved the Order 66, but I didn't want full priced extras.  Glad I got what I got when I did and all...  It's worked out.

I'm amazed at how many of these appear to be in the area actually.  Sounds like either more came in or Target stores were sitting on piles of them.  My Targets never even put them back out at full price.  For the most part, they've sat in the back until now.  They weren't out for the supposed remixing into the toy aisle that was to happen a couple weeks ago when the Rancor came out...  There was maybe one or two, but they've got 50 or 60 out now at clearance prices.

I'd love more BARC, blue, red, and yellow ARC Troopers for sure.

Not exactly a Purchase, but the WM near me had in the "Clearance" isle, a single clean Sandtrooper w/ White pauldron for the low low, red sticker, clearance price of $7.00 (even). :o

It was regular priced for less than that.....

This is the same store where I picked up a couple of that same figure for like $3. in November.

Does Walmart always jack up the price of discontinued items in their computers so you can return the item for a "profit"?

I could buy that line of thought if the price had been lower than the original retail price.  I'm thinking someone got it for Christmas and returned it, but through some mix up the price on the item had been raised in Big Blue's computers.

Nice find on the Dark Troopers.  He's not much for action, but still a cool figure.

Most 30AC stuff hasn't clearanced anywhere I hsop though Keonobi, so I know if they found backroom stock it'd just go with the other full-priced 30AC stuff in the clearance aisle and blend in with the Juno Eclipses, Sandtroopers and the like.
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Keonobi on January 15, 2009, 04:51 PM
I keep forgetting Walmart's penchant for stocking full price Moff Jelly-Jar.  (Oh I could squad build too...)  Yeah, I guess if they found something it probably would just get put out.  I'm amazed they could just find something in the stock room, but then again they do have a larger supply chain than most countries, so a palet or two of 30AC sitting in a warehouse in Maine or Idaho shouldn't be overly surprising...
Title: Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on January 15, 2009, 08:48 PM
I kid you not, someone returned E1 figures and they went out full price on the pegs...  THey disappeared so either someone dumb bought them thinking they got a deal on some rare goodies, or someone realized, "This ****'s old, who put this out!?" and took it away. :)  Full price though...  I just started laughing.

I wouldn't be surprised if these were hidden by someone and got lost in the shelves or something...  That happens too, and these were "popular" figures last year, mostly due to the gold coin I think, and perhaps someone hid them and they didn't get discovered till now.  I think it's possible.  I saw some McQ figures just magically appear this October at a store that, I'd bet, were hides someone made that were in a department that doesn't get cleaned up too often.  With the resets going on at most WM's right now, the spring cleaning maybe turned those up.

We're still not seeing them clearanced here.  It's kind of frustrating, but for the most part they've sold out where they were hanging on anyway, even at full price.  There's a couple at a few WM's, but that's it.  Very odd figure in how it's hanging around.

It's a good figure so I really would like more, but I'll be content with what I have and leave it at that I think.  Maybe score more cheap at the Toy Show or something.

AAT for $3, missing only 2 missiles. has some misapplied stickers. Stupid kid. I told the lady that as I bought it..."you're kid is STOOPID!"  She smiled, nodded and took my money.

Also, a Hailfire droid missing the missiles...the launchers and the laser gun...almost useless. But it was $3.

Different place, Grievous Starfighter for 25 cents, missiles MIA, the gold laser on the bottom, and the control panel dashboard, too, which I didn't know existed until I looked at pictures online...that's two Grievous fighters I have missing the same parts. And another missing everything that can be removed, because that's what kids do.

ANH Vader missing helmet, cape, saber, whatever...he was a quarter. Comic pack Chewbacca, too.
