Title: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: Brian on April 6, 2005, 11:19 AM
Well, we had a thread for OTC/VOTC, thought it might be nice to pass on into ROTS.  After all of the hoopla last weekend, are you still making purchases?  Have you spread things out a little so you have something to pick up over the next few weeks/months, etc.?  Have you bought anything since April 2?

After picking up most of the first 32 (that's as high as we got here as well), I'm still holding off planning to pick up figures like Mon Mothma and extras of others over the next couple of weeks.  Went to Wal-Mart and TRU yesterday to check for things (specifically Red Royal Guard and anything #33 and up), but nothing new.  Pretty much plenty of all figures 1-32, aside from Guards and Clonetroopers.  The Emperor figure seems to be somewhat scarce as well.  I did pick up an extra Chewie, after not finding anything else, because I like to keep one Chewie (and Han) carded from each line.  I was tempted to get the Force Battler Vader (only one I'm interested in right now), but held off for now.  $10 just seemed a bit much.  I have seen quite a few of these selling, although the rest of them are sitting.  Also, just happened to notice, but the Droid Tri Fighters seem to be pretty scarce around here.  I've only seen them at TRU so far, and haven't picked one up yet (not sure if I will yet or not).  AT-RT is also scarce, haven't seen any in town since Saturday...and I really wish I would have bought the one I saw at TRU :).  Anyways, any recent purchases, finds, or general observations?

BTW, that about takes care of it for me. All I want that I missed is the Medical Droid. There are a few I'm considering. Aside from that, I need a good Anakin and Obi-wan, but I haven't decided which to get. Haven't been impressed with them so far. Could use a Mace, too, as the only one I have is the original preview one. But I'm not too sure about the one that's out. Might hold off, and see what else comes out for those 3 guys.

After the current figs, what I'm looking forward to is the Mon Cal and Gran senators, the Wookiee and Neimoidian warrior.

It's pretty much the lighting.  It's the head from Obi Wan #27.

*edit* - Sorry, not trying to make this into a customizing thread.  Just showing that if someone doesn't like the current Obi Wan or Windu, customizing these are simple.

I haven't bought anything since Saturday, but not because of the lack of trying. I'm still in need of a few items. But my question is, are they even re-stocking? The stores I've hit haven't seemed to restock since Saturday morning. I'm wondering if they're going to wait until Sunday when the sales are all over. ::)
Title: Re: ROTS Purchases
Post by: CHEWIE on April 6, 2005, 02:21 PM
I don't know... I think the Walmarts are when needed.  I have seen some cases being put out.

I think it's possible we will see some restocking next week.

Title: Re: ROTS Purchases
Post by: JediMAC on April 6, 2005, 02:22 PM
Well, I did the ultimate OCD thing the other night when I had a little/lot of spare time on the way home.  I hit up several Targets, and slowly, painstakingly looked through all the figures for the nicest cards, and the absolute best paint jobs.  It was a long process actually, since the stores obviously had a HUGE supply of figures.  But at least I'm getting them a little cheaper now, and I'm giving my dollars to Target, instead of Walmart, which is always my spending goal.

So now I'll likely just replace many/most of the figures I was just blindly grabbing at during Midnight Madness at a couple WMs.  Gonna be quite a few returns, but oh well.  It's a sickness, I know, but someone's gotta do it, right?

No?  OK then.  Yes, I'm a freak.  :-[

I haven't bought anything since Saturday, but not because of the lack of trying. I'm still in need of a few items. But my question is, are they even re-stocking? The stores I've hit haven't seemed to restock since Saturday morning.

I assume you're talking about figures #33 and above, right Anthony?  'Cause I hit all the same Targets as you, and they had a plethora of everything up to #32 still, which I'm sure you've already obtained.  But I'd be surprised if anyone restocks anything this week though, since there's an absolute glut of product leftover on the pegs right now.  Best bet might be to grab the Target DCPI for the Coll. 2 stuff, and ask if they have any more cases in the back.  They might surprise you and bring a couple out, with some of the higher numbered figures...

I picked a few Jedis figs on Saturday that I couldn't find at MM.  I think I may go back and get Vader's Med Droid and eyeshadow Anakin. I'll need that droid to go with the Vader/Operating table.  :P

I guess now the trick is just keep checking for any new figs as they start to shopw up.

You haven't actually seen that figure around here yet, have you Ant'?  If so, shoot me a PM and LMK where, since I've yet to have a sniff of #'s 37-40 around SoCal yet.

I saw all 4 at MM at the Van Nuys TRU, but that was the last time. I got Mas Amedda but I put back the Med Droid and Polis Massan. I didn't even pick up the AT-TE gunner since I don;t collect Clone Troopers at all. I'm on the lookout for the Med Droid again so if I see any of these I'll grab 'em for you.

LOL.  Yeah I don't have any Clone Troopers or any prequel army builders at all actually. To me they never looked as cool as the classic Stormtrooper so they never piqued my interest. I;m sorry I passed on Vader's Med Droid now though. :(
Title: Re: ROTS Purchases
Post by: DoctorPadawan on April 6, 2005, 04:46 PM
Well, outside of three figures (Holographic Yoda, AT-TE Gunner and Polis Massan) and one vehicle (AT-RT), I'm officially caught up on the collection for the moment.  I found an ERG today at a K-Mart, and despite my efforts to attract the attention of a sales associate to open the case on the pallet to be stocked, I ended up opening it myself.  There was only one in the case and I felt really bad about opening the thing and taking one figure, but oh well.   ;D

The figures that haven't been selling isn't what surprises me (Tarffuls and Obi-Wans as far as the eye can see), but the figures that are selling.  If it's anything Grievous (other than the Force Battlers), it goes fast.  The larger vehicles (the Jedi Starfighters, the Wheel Bike, the Tri Droid, Gunship, and the ARC-170) are practically nonexistent.  12" Sidious is tough, but not as tough as the Grievous seems to be.  I saw the Dooku lightsaber in the new style box at a local WM today, and it looks as if Obi-Wan's lightsaber is the most popular of this assortment.  I still haven't seen the AT-RT anywhere, and no sign of those Battle Arena things either.

Also, the Attacktix and Force Battler lines are neck in neck for winning my "Clearance Aisle Award of the Year" at this point.  The only thing that is helping the FB line avoid that is the Vader, which seems to actually be selling (relatively speaking). 

So, not that anyone asked, but my haul at this point:

-Basic Figures 1-37, 40 (both Royal Guards and no multiples)
-Deluxe Grievous, Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Sidious
-BARC Speeder and Boga
-Obi-Wan's Fighter, Grievous' Wheel Bike, and Tri-Droid Fighter
-ARC-170 Fighter
-12" Anakin/Vader, Sidious, and Grievous
-Unleashed Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Grievous
-The novelization (which has been locked away from my eyes by a relative until May 20th)

Title: Re: ROTS Purchases
Post by: Darby on April 6, 2005, 07:29 PM
I found #33-36 today at WM, bringing my haul up to:

Clone Commander
Clone Pilot
Palpatine Saber Surprise
Tarfful
Anakin Robes
Obi Wan Jedi Kick
Padme
Agen Kolar
Mace
Count Dooku
Grievous' Bodyguard
Royal Guard

Not sure if anyone else has noticed or had the same situation in your area as I.  But Clones and Guards are now extinct from all stores in my area.  These sat for days and then just vanished.  Im still sticking by the Clone released as being a really good figure. 
Title: Re: ROTS Purchases
Post by: Nathan on April 6, 2005, 08:57 PM
At Midnight Madness I got AT-RT and Holo Yoda, and in late afternoon on April 2 I got Quickdraw Clone.

So I start small. ;) But I'll be going at it all summer in increments of $10 - 20. Initial stampede aside, we all know 90% of this stuff will still be available come December.

Well since MM (almost exactly a week ago), I've gotten 13 of the 30 somethingish I've seen.

Chewbacca
Clonetrooper
R2-D2
Grievous
Grievous' bodyguard
Darth Vader
Emperor Palpatine
Count Dooku
C-3PO
Tarfful
Yoda (#26)
Obi-Wan (#27)
Anakin (#28)

I've been kind of spreading my purchases out, since I'm a broke college student and can't afford to spend hundreds at a time  :'(. But I'm gradually working my way towards completion.

Also picked up the last AT-RT in town yesterday.
Title: Re: ROTS Purchases
Post by: proudfather2 on April 9, 2005, 07:55 PM
Not much but here's what I've got:

Anankin's Jedi Starfighter
Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter
ARC 170 (and three pilots for the damn thing, no droid yet)
12" Grevious
Unleashed Grevious
Basic figures: 20, 21, 22, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 and 36

I was thinking about getting a Tri-Fighter and would greatly appreciate it if anyone could give me the lowdown on this vehicle/droid. Same with Grevious' Wheel. Thanks.
Title: Re: ROTS Purchases
Post by: DoctorPadawan on April 9, 2005, 09:52 PM
TBK: The Droid Tri-Fighter is great.  I'd definitely recommend picking it up.  Grievous' Wheel Bike, on the other hand, is only passable, made less so by the fact that Hasbro apparently made it in the mirror image of how it appears in the film, and the fact that the Grievous pack-in figure is a complete piece of Happy Meal garbage.

So, I would say go with the Tri-Droid and wait on the Wheel Bike for clearance.

Post by: Jeff on April 10, 2005, 12:15 AM
Picked up #33-36 again today, so now I've got my openers for all of them (except my Red Saber #35 Palpy).  It was nice to be able to score a few more figures before the Target sale ends...

DeanPaul, can I buy your error Palpatine blue saber from you?  I could just pick it up in Indy?  For some stupid reason I want one :-\

I haven't bought much still to this point.  Prices too high in Canada, though Walmart finally getting in stock has driven it down a bit.  Thus far though I've bought:

01 Obi-Wan Kenobi (1)
02 Anakin Skywalker (1)
05 Chewbacca (1)
06 Clone Trooper (6)
09 General Grievous (1)
10 Mace Windu (1)
11 Darth Vader (1)
12 Emperor Palpatine (1) red
14 Chancellor Palpatine (1)
18 C-3PO (1)
20 Agen Kolar (1)
22 Kit Fisto (1)
23 Royal Guard red (5)
23 Royal Guard blue (2) thanks pmundheim :)
25 Tarrfful (1)
33 Clone Commander (1) thanks JuvyD
34 Clone Pilot (1) thanks JuvyD
37 Medical Droid (1)
38 AT-TE Gunner (1) thanks JuvyD
39 Polis Massan
40 Mas Amedda
Deluxe Anakin/Vader (1)

Boga w/Obi (1)
BARC speeder (1)

Still have yet to see any of the less common vehicles (up here) - no AT-RT, no ARC-170.  Only have seen the starfighters, wheelbike and the Gunship, nothing I need immediately as I think most are bound for clearance.  Kind of hoping to sneak out to a Target or something when I'm in Indy.

Post by: Brian on April 11, 2005, 11:53 AM
Went out this weekend and checked Target, Wal-Mart, and TRU...but unfortunately they hadn't gotten any new stock in (at least that I had seen).  I did pick up a Mon Mothma at Target that I had been putting off, and wanted to get before the sale ended.  I was hoping to pick up another Grievous Bodyguard or two, but they didn't have any.  I found a Red Royal Guard that I have been wanting at Shopko, but just couldn't pick it up, as their basic figures are priced at $9.  That just seems too high to me, maybe I'll regret it later.  I'm hoping that Target and Wal-Mart will be getting these eventually as well.  Still nothing above 32 in town either, at least that I have seen.  That said, here are the ones in the first 32 that seem to be disappearing quickly.

Grievous Bodyguard - Wish I would have picked up more than 1 on MM now, can't find them anywhere really.
Royal Guards - Both of course.  Only place I have seen them now is at that Shopko, for $9 a pop.
Clonetroopers - None anywhere, although they did hang out a bit the first week.

Somewhat Scarce:

Emperor Palpatine - You can find him, but not in real large numbers.
Darth Vader - Same as above.  Can be found, but not overly common.

I picked up an extra Grievous bodyguard this morning at Wal-mart.  They had a number of cases on a dolly out on the floor, unopened, so I might have to head back later today to see if they restocked anything past #32.  The pegs are pretty full, so its probably doubtful, but with a chance at Clone Commanders, Pilots, or Tank Gunners, I have to try ;).

Found a pile of new figures tonight at Kohl's! I picked up 1x each of the following:

#35 Palpatine w/RED Saber
#37 Vader's Chopper Droid
#38 AT-TE Gunner
#39 Polis Massan
#40 Mas Amedda

I gladly bought them despite the price -  $6.99 seems a bit steep, but really only $1 more than Target/TRU ($5.99).
Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: Brian on April 14, 2005, 08:41 AM
The Mrs. and I made the trek to Kohl's yesterday too, and found a pile of figures there.  I picked up the following:

#33 Clone Commander (x2)
#34 Clone Pilot
#35 Palpatine (Red Saber)
#37 Vader's Medical Droid
#38 AT-TE Tank Gunner

They also had #40 Mas Amedda, but I decided to wait on that one.  Kohl's seems to be getting some nice cases or something, because they had at least 5 of each type of Clone, and probably 15 or more of the #6 Clonetrooper.  I would have liked to pick up more, but like Jeff mentioned, they were $6.99 a pop.  I tried to justify it by saying I missed out on the Holo Yoda, so I saved $9.99 there ;).  I picked up an extra of the Commander, just because I really like that figure, and clones are always hard to come by.  I really wanted to get extras of the pilot and tank gunner, but I figured I would rather army build at the $5-ish pricepoint.

Also stopped by Target and picked up one of the Vader gift cards.  They had them "in stock" again, and they are pretty neat, so I just got one and put $5 on it.  I'll just use it on Star Wars stuff later on.  Also nice to note, our Target has lowered their figure prices to $5.24...same as Wal-Mart here....so they will definitely get as much Star Wars business as I can give them, and try to steer clear of Wally World when possible.  Also, as a side note, I was checking at Target for the "Anakin to Vader" deluxe, since I was considering getting it (but glad I didn't now), but they were totally sold out.  Plenty of the Obi-Wan, Palpatine, and Grievous deluxe, but not a single Anakin/Vader one.  I guess I was somewhat surprised by that.

Target did some mild restocking this weekend, so I picked up another #6 Clonetrooper (first one I've seen at the "Big 3" of Target/WM/TRU since 4/2), and also got the final cup set I was missing, the Grievous one.  Target had two of this one, but none of the others.  I don't know if it is the same in other areas, but Target seems to be the only one of the big retail places that is moving their ROTS product with any regularity.  I'm sure some stuff sells at Wal-Mart too, but with as much product as they have in, and the general chaos of their toy/figure section, it doesn't look like anything moves.  TRU looks about the same to me as it did on 4/2 :).

Agreed - Target is having the best success when it comes to turn-over - at least in my neck of the woods as well.

Walmart's stock is depleting but they aren't putting anything new out either.

TRU on the other hand looks just like it did when the doors opened at midnight except for the hard-to-find stuff. I see the biggest reason for this is that, in my area at least, the stores got allocated ONLY Collection 1, Wave 1 and Collection 2, Wave 1 - so they have tons and tons of figures #1 - #24 AND THAT IS IT!

At this point, collectors don't need those figures and kids really haven't started to buy yet since the movie isn't out yet. This is the only thing TRU has going for it - come May 19th they'll still have a Darth Vader, Anakin, Obi-Wan, R2, C-3PO, Emperor, Clonetrooper and Padme. At the rate of product decay at WalMart and Target - they will not.

i picked up one set of figures #41-44 today at wal-mart. i found one fresh case that included one each of #41-44, one each #33-36 (red saber palpy), and if i recall one each of #1-3 (gaahhh!) and #9. the one thing of interest is that the #41 clone has a dirty /  battle damaged type of paint app. i assumed this was going to be clean like the #6 clone because i didn't hear anyone mention otherwise.

I made a few finds yesterday.  Our local Wal-Mart had a few later figures sprinkled in with the initial batch, so I was able to pick up a Polis Massan, Mas Amedda, and another #6 Clonetrooper.  No other later figures (from 32 on up), but it did look like they'd restocked some of them...as there were a lot more 3POs and Padmes than there was previously.  Those figures seem to be selling pretty well.  Now if someone would just buy some of those Obi/SBD or Palpy deluxe figures, so we could get the 2nd wave put out :).  I guess I can't complain, I haven't bought them either.

I also picked up the Mustafar playset, but haven't yet decided if I'm going to keep it.  From the box, it seems like it might be kind of neat, but I'm trying to figure out if I really need it.  I never picked up the Arena from AOTC, and seemed to regret it sometimes, so for $30-ish on this playset, I decided to pick it up.  I'm hanging on to the receipt for now though, we'll see.

Finally, stopped at TRU on the off chance that they might actually have something new.  Not too much, although I did find a lone AT-RT, which is the one that I haven't been able to find anywhere since the launch.  I saw two at this same TRU on 4/2, but passed at the time...and had regretted it since.  I was glad to find it.  Bring on the Wookiee Helicopter :P.

Target and Wal-Mart seem to be getting a trickling of newer figures (meaning 33-40) now, as I've seen a few here and there the past couple days.  I picked up an extra Clone Pilot yesterday at Target, it was the only clone (aside from #6) that they had there.  Still on the lookout for the next Deluxe wave, but I'm not sure if it is happening or not...an awfuly lot of Obi/SBD and Palpy packs warming those pegs.

Sunday I found my 2nd Clone Pilot and Palpatine with the Red Saber.  I really gave that figure more credit than it deserved, it's another salt & pepper shake unfortunately.  I thought it was more than that, plus mine's got a nasty "lean" due to the lame-ass feature.

Anyway, saw another Clone Pilot rolling away in a buggy, guess I could've had an ARC-load, but I was a couple minutes too late.

Still never seen an AT-TE Gunner or Commander, much less the Neimodian, Wookiee, and SA Clone.  :(  Even #6 CLone's gone around here save for the rare one at the bottom of the bin at TRU.

Clones not on shelves in time for E3 premiere?  Retail (and Hasbro case assortment decision makers) should be ashamed.   ::)

It's so weird.  There are literally TONS of commanders and pilots on the shelves at Target and WM here.  No Tank Gunners, but I have to wonder how long that will last. 

I'm real disappointed in Palpy too.  He would have been a lot better if only he had ball jointed shoulders.  He can't even stab and electrocute somebody at the same time.   :(
Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases

Between yesterday and today - picked up my two sets (one MOC and one opener) of the Deluxe Wave 2 assortment.

I've already opened up the Vader, Jet-pack Clone and Vulture Droid.

Will tear into the Yoda on Can-cell tonight!

All-in-all very pleased with these four deluxe figures - it is a WAY better wave than the launch wave.

This morning saw Collection 1, Wave 3 all over the place, Walmart and Target, plenty of Clone Pilots, Clone Commanders, Blue & Red Saber versions of Palpatine #35 and Exploding Grievous. One Target had what was left of a Collaction 2, Wave 3 case - one Pollis Massan and a Vader Medical Droid.

Glad to see the Wave 3 figures are starting to show up. Still haven't seen the Wave 4 Col 1 figures yet. Haven't seen the Dooku saber variant Anakin either. Not sure if that's in the case with the Wave 3 or Wave 4 figures though.

I'm still looking for a second Gunship - I'm kicking myself that I just didn't buy the two I saw a KB Toys on the 2nd - it's not like KB's price was bad or nothing either - it was $29.99 - same as Target/TRU. I'm also dying to find the Mustafar playset - can't wait to open up one of those and fiddle with it!

Yeah, I've noticed the nice abundance of commanders and pilots and lack of gunners...I still don't have any of those.

I'm debating whether or not I should buy up some of the commanders...I already have two but this is my favorite figure so far!!  Gotta love the double holsters and awesome paint scheme.

These guys make great custom fodder - remove the skirt and repaint the red to blue or yellow - at least that's my plan!!

Found Cut me up Vader and Flying Trooper today, along with a few AT-TE gunners (very cool fig).  I don't like the flying trooper all that much, I have not opened him yet since I'm a work but he does not seem all that for a deluxe.  The flying pack is not that big.  If you compare him with Yoda and the massive 16 inch wingspan dragonfly thing, he comes up way short, just the vulture droid does.

A few days late, but I finally found an AT-TE Gunner at a local WM on Tuesday morning.  Amazingly, both of them were still hanging on the front of the pegs along with a plethora of the Vader MD and Polis Massan figures, but Mas Amedda was gone the way of the dodo.  I mean, it's a nice figure, but who looks at him and the AT-TE Gunner and says, "I'll take the one with the tongue."*

So, even though I'm not really caught up, I am caught up in my mind.  1-40 are now complete and I'm looking forward to being continually frustrated looking for 41-56 due to the crapload of 1-32 that every retailer from here to Abu-Dhabi has these days.

*minds out of the gutter, guys :)
Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: Brian on May 6, 2005, 09:00 AM
Went and checked a couple of stores yesterday after work (and picked up the soundtrack as well).  Both Target and Wal-Mart had stocked a little bit of "newish" stuff, mainly the #33-36 figures.  To be honest, what I saw the most of was Clone Pilots.  There were tons of those.  I found one Clone Commander at Wal-Mart, and decided to pick it up.  Just a real nice figure.  I had the "Splodin'!!" Grievous in the cart, but ultimately decided to put it back.  I just didn't think that I really needed it, and from what I've read on here from others that have picked it up...it is apparently "teh suck".  Anyways, they had several of those as well, so I don't know if they are going anywhere anytime soon.  A few Palpys as well (red saber version), and other than that it was more of the same.  I have seen #37-40 (minus the Tank Gunner) at Wal-Mart as well, but those seem to have sold for the most part now.

Thanks to the info from you guys here at JD, I was able to score the Target Clonetrooper as well.  I checked the Star Wars section, and nothing there, and as the Mrs. and I walked over to look at dog stuff, there was a Target employee stocking rubbermaid containers.  I just asked her if she could look up a DCPI number for me, to see if they had any in stock, and she said sure.  I gave it to her, and she asked me what it was, and I told her "a Star Wars figure".  She then took me to the Star Wars section to show me that is where they kept their figures, and asked if I saw the one I needed there.  I said "no, I don't think so", so she called back to see if they were in the stockroom (and they were), then asked how many I wanted.  I just went with one, but I have the feeling I could have had as many as I wanted.  I don't think this lady was particularly knowledgeable on it, but was more than happy to help and quite friendly.  Anyways, i was quite happy to get one (despite the $12.99 price), and now I don't have to keep checking or try to get over there on Mother's Day.

On a side note...regarding Wal-Mart...they seem to have a strange pricing thing going on over there.  Our particular store has basically two Star Wars sections.  One very large section that you can see when walking the "main aisle", and then another, smaller section, that is located in the action figure aisle...where the "normal" section would be.  The pegs on the large section have the figures priced at $4.98, while the old section is still at $5.24.  A week or so ago, I picked up Polis Massan, Amedda, and a #6 Clone.  When we checked out, Polis and Mas rang up $4.98, while the Clone was $5.24.  The lines were crazy, and I didn't mess with the hassle to get the 26 cents back, so I let it go.  Then last night, same thing, pegs labeled $4.98, but the Clone Commander fig I found rang up for $5.24.  I don't know if they have some sort of dual price thing going on or what.  At first I thought that maybe the older stock was $4.98, and newer was at the normal, $5.24 price...but that doesn't make sense since the 37-40 figures were at the lower price.  Oh well, the weekly ad says $5.24, so that is probably the correct price anyways....just found it odd.  On a side note, both Target and Wal-Mart still didn't have the Vader TIME Magazine, instead having the May 2nd issue featuring the new Pope.  I'm guessing (hoping) that the Vader one doesn't actually hit until next week, sure would like to pick it up.
Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: Pete_Fett on May 6, 2005, 09:45 AM
Went to a couple of Walmarts and a Target this morning. Lots of figures #33 - #36 to be found. Smaller number of figures #37 - #40 (minus the tank gunner of course)....

At my last stop (the second WalMart) scored myself my opener Gunship (Finally!!!) and two of the Mustafar playsets. So now I can finally see what the deal is with this playset.

Also in the aisle were plenty of 12" figures - more Shaak Ti and Barriss Offee dolls - I had already picked them up at this same WalMart earlier in the week - but I did snag the cardboard case boxes themselves - need something to pack the ROTS 12" figures in for the pending move and all...

It's always fun to see the employees look at you weird when you're happily taking home something they consider to be trash.
Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: Brian on May 6, 2005, 10:04 AM
Forgot to mention earlier that Wal-Mart also had a few of the "Battle Arenas" in stock as well.  There were Mace vs. Sidious and Dooku vs. Anakin sets scattered in the action figure aisle.  Once again, the Star Wars section, as well as the general action figure aisle, was a total war zone.  There is always a few problems, but yesterday was really bad.  I tried to clean up a little of what I could, but I would have had to stay there an hour to get it all taken care of.  Yikes.

Here's a recap of my activity since Midnight Madness. 

April 17th I bought a Clone Commander, Vader's Medical Droid, AT-TE Tank Gunner (they had two), & Exploding Grievous at my local Wal-Mart.

I also spotted two Mas Amedda and one Clone Pilot on this trip.  Didn't get either.  I didn't realize how lucky I was to find these this early on until I got home with them and started checking what others had found so far. 

April 29th I bought one each of #'s 41, 42, 43, & 44.  I also found 8 Commander's & 8 Pilot's.  I picked up 5 Commander's & 3 Pilot's to trade for some stuff I wanted.  All were also at my local Wal-Mart. 

April 30th I bought a Red saber #35, and another Clone Pilot at Wal-Mart a town over from me.

May 6th I made a trip to my local Wal-Mart which had nothing.  I figured I might as well go to the Wal-Mart 15 minutes away and found 2 Polis Massan's, which I have been looking harder for than any others.  I got 7 figures in all.  Mas Amedda, 2 Polis (one to open, other to keep carded), 2 AT-TE Tank Gunner's (one to open, and one to trade), another Vader's Medical Droid (to open), and a #6 Clone.  Still no sign of any of the new deluxe wave around here.

Found a bunch of stuff this morning at the WalMart near my house:

3x SA Articulated CloneTrooper (#41)
2x Wookie Warrior
2x Nemoidian Warrior
2x Destroyer Droid
1x Anakin w/Dooku Lightsaber (corrected Anakin #2)
1x Vulture Droid w/Brown paint scheme (as opposed to blue w/stripes)

They had like five or six cases of C1 Wave 5, I was shocked. The Vulture droid was the only one there and I wanted it only since it is a variant. Don't think I'll pick up a second one to open just yet.

Are all of the SA CloneTroopers slightly "dirty" - all of the ones on the pegs had slight amounts of armor "wear" detailing painted on. They aren't 100% clean and shiny white like the CloneTrooper #6.

Big weekend for me. Friday I found the 3rd battle arena and on Saturday I scored 41-44, the playset and the bonus figure vehicles at Khols.

Now I just need Anakin's fighter and Wave 2 Delux and I'm caught up.

Post by: Pete_Fett on May 10, 2005, 10:55 AM
Went back to that same WalMart last night on the way home and was able to score myself a second green/brown Vulture Droid to open.

So now unless it's picking up another couple of Wookie Warriors or SA Clone (#41), here's what I have left:

TRU Exclusive Anakin Starfighter w/Pilot
Figures  #45 - #56
Deluxe Wave 3 (Clones, Stass Allie, Crab & Spider Droids)
Evolution Sets
Battle Packs
500th Vader
Wookie Helicopter
Plo Koon's Jedi Starfighter
ROTS Unleashed Wave 2

So unless there's something else coming that we don't know about it looks like there is more behind me (that I've already gotten) than there is ahead of me (stuff I still need to get as it is released).... and the price point on all of the items doesn't exceed $20 - so that's good too.

Finally starting to see the light at the end of the ROTS product on-slaught tunnel.

Grabbed three Target clones and finally saw a blue royal guard.  Also picked up Wookiee Warrior #2.  Only saw one Neimodian Warrior and about 5 Wookiees.  No SA Clonetrooper or Destroyer Droid, which is weird because I thought that rehashed figure would be a pegwarming from day one.
Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: DoctorPadawan on May 11, 2005, 09:00 AM
I found one each of the Destroyer Droid, Wookiee Warrior, and Neimoidian Warrior yesterday at my local Wal-Mart.  They were hanging on the front of the pegs in the (overflowing) SW half-aisle and there was (surprise!) no sign of the Clone whatsoever.  I was walking around in another aisle and found the case that the figures came in (literally) ripped open at the top and lying in the middle of the floor.  Wow.

In case anyone is wondering, the Droideka is practically the exact same figure as the 2002 Saga version.  New copyright date, and the missles have been modified a bit near the nose of the projectile, but otherwise it's the same figure.  The Wookiee is very cool, although mine's right arm keeps coming apart at the elbow joint and I'm still trying to figure out what the hell that totem pole thing is used for.  The Neimoidian is cool, but as far as the Big Ass Cannon, WTF?

Hasbro needs to figure out this Clone situation and pronto.  It's not funny anymore (it never was) that the figures that more people are having more trouble finding than anything else are all Clones (Clone 6, Clone Commander, Clone Pilot, AT-TE Gunner, Clone 41, and I'd be willing to be Commander Baccarra is going to be just as hard to locate).

I think that totem pole thing is a shield.

And what's cool - is that you can un-do his bandolier/harness and put the shield on his back and hold it there with the harness and still have him holding both of his weapons! (I'm big on figures being able to hold ALL of their accessories at once)

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  ;D Today I went to Target and got me some clone commanders.  They had 6, I got 3, no need to be a clone hog. :P  I also got new wookies warriors.  Both tan and brown, they must be shipping in the same assortment. (Hey Chewie, how many of these are you getting?  They rock)  I didn't buy that rehash destroyer droid or the SA clone trooper.  How different is the SA from #6?  #6 is pretty articulate but I never got the CW SA trooper and I dunno.

Anyway,  they also had every single figure, including senate guard (only saw the red one).  I counted all 44 figures there and wait there is more, they had 36, :o yep 36 target exclusive clones. I didn't get any clones since I got mine back on the 28th.  But their display was impressive.  They are definetily gearing up for next week's big event.  The only thing I did not see was the Mustafar playset.  They had all 3 battle arenas, all the vehicles and the 12" figures.

It was the way 4/2 was meant to be. 

Excuse me while I open my commander,

also had the 12" grevious and shak ti doll. plus new deluxes: vader medical table, flying clone, yoda w/ cancel, vulture droid
and they had TWO blue guards.

Found the TRU exclusive Anakin Jedi Starfighter w/Anakin pack-in.

Would have preferred they include an Anakin that could actually SIT in the thing, but the Evolutions set is only a month or two away so that figure will be able to hop ship-to-ship as the pilot I suppose.

Here's hoping that the Obi-Wan Pilot figure has SA and softgoods.

I guess now I'm on break until the Col 2 Wave 4, Unleashed Wave 2, Deluxe Wave 3 all start to show up.

Stopped by the Brick, NJ Target this morning. They had a good selection of figures #33 - #44 - picked up second openers of the Nemoidian, Destroyer Droid and Tan Wookie Warrior (#43). I was also able to pick up my third and fourth (last one) of the SA Clonetrooper (#41).

I was also lucky enough to see that they had received the Dark Brown variant Wookie Warrior (#43) so I grabbed two of that version, one to open and one to keep MOC.

By the time I got there (8:30AM) there was only one AT-TE Gunner sitting around so there also was another collector in at the same time as me who hadn't found that figure yet, so I let him have it. I already have four open and on MOC so I really don't need any more.

They also had plenty of AT-RTs - so expect to see that vehicle all over soon, especially since the Wave 2 case is 100% AT-RT.

No Target Exclusive Clones in sight, the pegs had changed from being labelled as "Lava Vader" to "SA Clone" though.

Only hit two stores this morning - the one WalMart I went to was looking even more especially like a bomb had hit it - they were re-doing their action figure section and everything was all over the place.

They had all the new stuff; several op table Vaders; surprisingly, a TON of SA clones. Now I'm flat broke. ;D

BTW, all the new Wookiees were light brown. I didn't get any. I'm going to wait and see what color(s) I get in my HasbroShop order. Seeing all those tan ones there, I'm hoping I get 2 dark ones. Then I'll go back for a tan one, as I'd kind of like 2 dark and 1 light.

I found a Mustafar playset at one of the local disaster areasWal-Marts today.  Decent toy (see that thread if you care for my lengthy thoughts on it) and since it is seemingly the last "big-ticket" item, I felt a great swell of relief when I got it home and opened it up.  Then Obi-Wan kept dropping his lightsaber and I wasn't quite so relieved.   :-\

I am now officially only missing one figure, and I'm sure it's the one figure that everyone else is missing.  Yep, you guessed it: Mon Mothma.   8)

No, I'm kidding, I still haven't found the #41 Clone Trooper.  If they don't ship solid cases of this figure, there is going to be a problem within the next two months.

Hit two Targets last night and was shocked by what I saw.  The clones were everywhere.  We are talking about commanders, gunners, SA, regulars and pilots.  I counted 12 commanders in one target, 6 pilots, 3 SA, 4 regulars and 2 gunners.  The second target had few commanders but almost double everything else.  Being bone dry on cash, I just looked at them and hope than some army builder (other than me) can give those clones a nice home ::)

Of course they also had plenty of 42, 43 and 44.  I didn't even look at the destroyer droid but I did get a few light fur wookies.  I didn't know that they were smaller (1/2 to 3/4 of an inch) than the preview wookies.  And I cannot get the small weapon in their hand to save my life.  Oh well.

Here's how I finally figured it out.  With the Wookiee facing you, the handlebar (the one that is on the side of the gun) should face to your left.  The part of the gun in the circular opening with the brown around it (think of it like the wrappings around a hockey stick) goes in the Wookiee's left hand (the left hand is actually molded to hold it perfectly).  Then, the handlebar fits in his right hand, but you kind of have to work with it as far as the elbow, shoulder, and wrist positioning goes so it will look okay.

Hope that helps you out!

I have the really burnt Vader on table and he looks the best, IMO.


So I opened some SA troopers #41 and I noticed they have an antenna coming out of their back.  What the deal with that?  It looks cool, I'm just curious and the darn thing comes of every time I touch my clone.  Maybe I should stop playing with it but what is the fun in that. :P

Checked out Wal-Mart and TRU this weekend, and although figures #33-40 seem to be showing up in better quantities (Clone Commanders are tough finds though), still no sign of #41 and up at retail yet.  I did receive some orders from HasbroToyShop and Amazon, and between the two picked up the following figures:

Vader on Med Table
Clonetrooper w/Jetpack
2x #41 Clonetrooper
#43 Wookiee Warrior (dark)

Should have one more package arriving today, and I'll be pretty well caught up with what is out...I think.

How are the wookies doing in your area?

In mine they are warming the pegs like little hairy mittens.  I have not seen any more dark ones, which are the cooler ones.  But yesterday I counted 17 at Target and only 11 Destroyer droids.  I was shocked, SHOCKED :o, to find more wookies than destroyers.

The local DMZ...umm...SWM put out a case of 41-44 right before I walked in this morning.  I had just started to walk away when I noticed that big "41" peeking out from the side of one of the pegs.  This was apparently one of those "brilliant" case assortments that included 1 Neimoidian, 1 Droideka, 1 Clone, and 2 Wookiee Warriors (both light furred), and as soon as I had the one Clone in my hand, another guy came in and scooped up the Neimoidian, DD, and one of the Wookiees. 

They had also (finally) put out the ARC-170 and the Gunship there as well, but they were mixed amongst the Legos and nowhere near the action figures.   :P

I cannot express how thrilled I am that I'm finally caught up on what is out there right now.  Of course, now that I say that, the Tarkin/Shrimpy/Aak wave will show up tomorrow and I'll be back on the hunt again.

Stopped by Target today, and they had stocked some of the 41-44 figures.  The clones were gone of course (although there were several Commanders and LOTS of pilots), but they had 1 Destroyer Droid (which I left) and several of the lighter Wookiee Warrior and Neimodian Warrior.  I picked up 1x Wookiee and 1x Neimodian (which I didn't have).  I think I am basically caught up, aside from army builders, until the Tarkin wave is released.  Best of all, Target has all Star Wars merchandise on sale, so they were $4.99 :).

Another Saturday, another decent score! I found Wave 3 deluxe a Target. It was R1 with the white clones.

Fun tidbit:

A Target employee pulled the case out for me. The employee was pulling each one out of the case for me, as the clones came out, a hand out of nowhere reached and grabed the clones, saying, I'll take that one. I said "dude, I asked for the box." Luckily the Target employee was ultra cool because he totally backed me up. There was only one per case of everything. Yoda and Vader were left overs from wave 2. I let the other guy have the Vader since I had him already. The guy the asked me which ones were hot. Some people.

With that, I offically have every 3 3/4' item released to date. However, I heard another unconfirmed report of #45-47 being found.  :P

The clones are everywhere.  I've seen SA clones and the rest of the wave all over the place.  Even found about a dozen dark fur wookies at Walmart this morning, got 3.  The funny thing is that kids are buying the crappy destroyer droid so at least here they are not clogging pegs.  I reached for a clone and this kid asked me for help so I handed him the clone and he told me he wanted the battle droid that fires rockets #44.  I helped him get two, he was too short, boy was he happy, then again so was I.  Target had about 6 Sa clones, took 3, and 4 flying deluxe clones, left them there.  They also had dark fur wookies and neimoidian warriors up the wazoo.
Good luck,

Our Wal-Mart must have gotten in some new cases, as they seemed to have #41-44 yesterday.  Or, I should say, #42-44 :).  There wasn't a single Clonetrooper there of course, but plenty of the rest.  I picked up one more "dark" wookiee warrior and called it good.  They seemed to have pretty good supply of most of the first 44 figures there, aside from figures like #6 Clone, #41 Clone, Tank Gunner, Vader, Grievous, and Royal Guards.

I picked up 2 SA clones this morning.  They were there tuesday and yesterday.  So this morning I decided to give them a good home.  It was my good deed of the day. ;)

Today was the 1st time I saw Darth Tater at retail (Darth Vader Mr Potato Head).  The thing is really funny looking ;D.  I found it so hilarious that I bought it.  It was 6.99.

Found deluxe wave 3 today at Target. ;D  They had 4 Spider droid (which iIleft, I have 2 from AOTC), 3 Stass Allie in barc speeder and 5 crab droids.  They also had a few table vaders and yoda w/cancell but not flying troopers or vulture droids.  And of course one lonely clone trooper 3-pack.  This is my very 1st 3-pack.  I never found any of the CW packs.  So I was mighty excited. :P

The barc speeder is pretty nice, IMO.  Stass sits ok in it.  Later I will try the Target Clone and the gunner.  The crap droid looks cool, I really like it too.  The clones are basically articulation impared but I think they are nice fillers in any diorama.

Good luck this weekend ;)

Found the AT-RT with bonus clone trooper and the Barc Speeder with bonus sneak peview wookie today at Meijer for 14.99 each. :o  I was under the mistaken impression that these were Kohls' exclusives.  Meijer had 4 or 5 of each of them.  They also had 20 cases of deluxe wave 1, ouch.  If you want bonus clones/wookies, head to Meijer. ;D

It looked like Deluxe Wave 3 hit our local Target recently, as I spotted a few of the remains.  There was one Spider Droid laying on the bottom shelf by itself, and I saw another guy with a Stass Allie in his hand.  I wasn't really interested in either, so no big deal.  Funny though, Deluxe Wave 2 never did show around here (or at least not yet), and the pegs are otherwise packed to the gills with Obi/SBD and the Palpy figure.  Thanks to Amazon, I got the Wave 2 figs I wanted, but it would be nice to see them show up locally as well.  I really like that Vader Med Table figure for some reason.  Otherwise, nothing else new here.  Looked around a bit for the Tarkin wave, but didn't find it.  Didn't really expect to either though.  Hopefully those will start showing up soon.  Kind of a slow time right now, but my wallet is thankful for that ;).

Found both Meena Tills and Ask Aak this morning at my local WalMart, there were two of each but only grabbed one - all of the cards were in bad shape (which is probably why I found them) - no Tarkin figures to be found anywhere.  :-[

Will hit some stores on the way home tonight to see if any other stores got them in - also going to check Target for Deluxe Wave 3.

Glad that stuff is still hitting - was actually shocked to see the latest Col 2 Wave this morning!

I found the Tarkin wave (which in a month is scheduled to be 3 a piece per figure so 9 of the figures will be in one case so these 3 figures will be overloaded on the pegs) and I found 7 AT-TE gunners, 6 at a TRU (I got 3, left 4) and 1 at the Target next door (which I left). Found a ton of #6 and #41 clones also yesterday. I also found 3 Royal Blue guards that I hid since I have my 2 for collectors. If no one wanted them then I'll put them into play on Monday.

That's nothing to ashamed about.  I doubt they will ever go to clearance.  I have a hard time not buying one everytime I see them.  I'm up to 4 already.  I figured that since I saw 12 x-wings, I can still play catch up.

I can't believe how well the Gunship is selling.  We've seen 3 total version of this tooling now...I was sure that this third ROTS version would warm the shelves and I would be able to find one on clearance near the end of the movie's run....

Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: Gatillo on June 9, 2005, 05:58 PM
Well I did buy 2 of the AOTC gunship on clearance for 20 each instead of the original 40.

The thing is that this vehicle has a lot of play value for kids.  One of my co-workers bought one, along with 10 clones, for his kids that usually only like super heroes and they love it.

Surprisingly, found 3-4 of the #41 Clonetrooper yesterday at Wal-mart, so I picked another one up.  At another point, I might have picked up more...but I'm trying to keep the spending under control right now, and plus, there just weren't that many white ones actually on screen in this movie anyways.  It is a really nice figure though.  Our Wal-Mart seems to be scaling back on the Star Wars.  The "feature aisle" display is not split in half, with Fantastic Four inhabiting the other side (which was previously filled with Legos, Attacktix, game controllers, and misc. stuff like that).

Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: Brian on June 13, 2005, 08:40 AM
On Saturday, I found 1 each of the Han and Yoda cup sets, so I picked those up.  I was a little surprised and quite happy to find them, I just like these sets for some reason.  I could do without the $12.99 pricetag though, yikes.  Must have missed out on the Fett, so hopefully these keep shipping/stocking.  I'd hate to be one short ;).  These really aren't bad sets, but with them just including older, rehashed figures, I would think they could keep the pricepoints down a bit more.  Either that, or just releases the glasses without the figures, for a cheaper price ;).

So this evening I made a toy run...

I picked up:

-Bail Organa
-Supreme Chancellor Palpatine (I got these 2  guys because I simply felt like the toy run was gonna be a bust and I'd been spacing out my ROTS purchases and these 2 are some of the latter figs I needed)
-Ask Aak
-Governor Tarkin
-Meena Tills
-8 Super ARticulated Clones (had on Layaway)
-1 Clone #6

Put another Layaway on as well of a couple more #6 Clones an AT-RT (The WM I was at had had like a dozen AT-RT's the week prior but then BAM they had only one tonight so I got it), and I got an extra Pollis Massan on the order as well.

What a night though...  Thought I wasn't gonna find anything but then the Senators wave was staring at me.  Pretty neat, albeit boring, figures.  My Clone Army got a nice shot in the arm too...  9 Clones with 2 more replacement troops on the way.  Sweet. :)

It has been almost 2 weeks since my last ROTS purchase but this morning Target had 5 clone 3-packs.  They were all the lying down blue clone.  I have yet to see red or green.  I bought one because I like those white posing clones to add some spice to dioramas. :P
Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases

Deluxe are a big pain to find here...  I want Spider Droids, Crab Droids, and Vader w/Table (I'd like to find one or two of the variants as well) and I'll be damned if any of those sit at all.

Id' kinda dig the Clone color variants (and sell off the whites I get) but those of course don't sit.  The sets tend to not interest me too much though so they're not as important to me...  Those droids and Vader though I'd really REALLY like to find.   :-\

*** Modified based on finds Monday night and Tuesday morning ***

Haven't been able to post for a while since I just moved... anyway, here's what I was able to get since I last posted:

Anakin on Mustafar, R2-D2 and Baccara wave (x2)
Clone 3-Pack w/Red Dots Variation (x2)
Clone 3-Pack w/Green Stripes Variation (x2)
Clone 3-Pack w/Blue Stripes Variation (x2)
Target Figures w/Cups Wave 2 (x2)
Clone 3-Pack all white Clones (x1)
Wookie Flyer (x2)

I still need:
500th Vader (x2)
another all white Clones 3-pack
Figures #45 (x2); #46 (x1); and #47 (x1)

Found the Red/Rust Dotted Clones at the WalMart near me in Manahawkin, NJ last week along with figures #48 - #50 (LOTS OF THEM - like seven/eight cases worth).

Found the Blue Stripes variant Clone 3-pack last night at the Brick, NJ Target.

Found the Green Stripes variant Clone 3-pack this morning at my local WalMart in Manahawkin, NJ

Found the Wookie Flyer this morning at the same Brick, NJ Target

So things seem to be hitting stores again. I just hope I can get those last few things I need before the Evolutions and Battle Packs start to hit.

Bacara is cool looking, but yes, he is lacking severly in articulation.  He has a lame quick draw action features and his arms are posed similar to the AT-TE gunner.

Kind of lame, but like I said, he's neat looking.

Was this guy even in the movie?

I picked up R2-D2 (#48) yesterday, apparently just missing the rest of the wave.  Three of the R2s, no Bacaras or Anakins.  I knew I should have made the trek over to Target on Monday.  Oh well, hopefully they will start showing up more often soon.  I also picked up the Chewbacca Force Battler at Target.  Not overly interested in the line overall, but I wanted to have the Chewie (and Han).  They also had 1 Clone, and a couple of Mace Windus.  No sign of the Wookiee Helicopter yet though.

Got another wookie copter at TRU but from 30 they had the other day this was the last one. 

Meijer once more got a few cases of the barc/at-rt w bonus wookie/clone.  I got me another at-rt w/clone.

Target lowered SW Battlefront from 49.99 to 19.99.

I got myself INCREDIBLY caught up on Deluxe tonight.

I put on Lay-away:

-2 Spider Droids
-2 Crab Droids
-1 Stass Allie
-1 Yoda on Can-Cel
-1 Red Variant Clone 3-pack (trade bait maybe)

And I bought outright a SA Clone (just one SA Clone chilling on the pegs, hah), and a Crab Droid. 

No Vader med tables, and that sucks ass.  :(  I want that figure SO bad and have never seen any variant of it.

I may nab more droids though.  The Spider Droid and Crab Droid are damn sweet figures, even though I used to be a Spider Droid hater.

Scored Bacara, KFC Ani and one blue clone 3 pack about a week ago at Target.

I was excited when I came across eight clone packs sitting on the pegs thinking to myself that there would be variety of flavors and I could complete my delux-o clones in one giant swoop.

Boy, was I wrong.  They were all the same.... :'(

Should've picked up a few to use as trade bait, but clonie funds are waning.

As part of my birthday present, my wife took me around to Wal-Mart and Target while we were out and about last week, and I was able to pick up Tarkin and friends at Wal-Mart, and then Crispy Anakin and Bacara at Target.  I'm actually caught up on basic figures, at least until the next wave starts hitting everywhere.  Still haven't seen the Wookiee Flyer or Boba Fett cup set yet, but otherwise things are looking good.  Also, although not technically "purchases", a few other SW presents I received from various family members:  Force Battlers Chewbacca, Force Battlers Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi lightsaber, Darth Vader talking helmet, and Darth Tater.  It was a nice b-day :).

Double Crap. Last week around here was nothing but Blue and Green variants a plenty. I picked up a couple extra of the green sets but ended up giving them to local friends locally who needed them for their collections.

I will definitely keep my eyes out for Red and Green variants.

dafoo you are absolutely right which is why I'm returning them.  Pete I'll check them out when I get home to see how good the packages are, I have them sitting in a box right now.  the only reason I got them was because when the target clones hit I saw about twelve or so sitting on the shelf and I left them because of how expensive they are, not even thinking I could have charged it and just traded them or sell them back at cost to others that couldn't find them.  so when I saw all those clones just sitting there at Walmart I grabbed them.  to bad the suck so bad and nobody wants them really.  they are nowhere near as sought after as the clone wars version was.  I kick myself every day for not grabbing those target clones.

TRU near where I work got in another case of 500th Vader figures. Picked up my MIB/MIP version to add to my collection.

Got in my order from Amazon.com of 2x Tarkin, 1x Ask Aak and 1x Meena Tills - three of these figures were to join my MOC collection, however they are all in really lousy shape so I'm returning the three figures that were intended to be added to the MOC collection.

Since I'm sick and tired of not finding anything in the stores, I broke down and made by first EE purchase since last year when I placed my pre-order for the SA AOTC Clone 4-pack case - I ordered Collection 2, Wave 5 which will get me one each of those figures above, plus two each of the remaining collection 2 figures, plus a Royal Guard and 2 more AT-TE gunners. To me this is a VERY well mixed case and nicely meets my needs. Since Collection 1 seems to be shipping both more frequently and more heavily, I figure I'll be able to score the last three figures at retail w/o any problem.

I also ordered a case of the Wave 2 Unleashed figures. Anakin and Obi-Wan clog the Unleashed pegs in my area, so my confidence in these hitting well in my area isn't exactly high - especially since store reports finding these things started back in June.

I'm tempted to just break down and buy that last all-white ROTS Deluxe Clones 3-pack from an eBay seller just to be done with looking for those.  Hitting three WalMarts, two Targets and a TRU EVERY morning is becoming a real drag - VERY spoiled by the huge in-flux of new product during April and May, the last three weeks have been VERY dry.

Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases

No problem jedipurge - thanks for checking.

Found the Unleashed Wave 2 (Vader, Sidious vs. Yoda and Ventress) this morning at the Eatontown, NJ Toys R Us.

Was REALLY shocked to see them there. They also had the value two-packs in stock - the AT-TE Gunner was paired with Bail Organa - if he had been paired with a Jedi like Aayla Secura or Agen Kolar, I might have bought the set, but since I really didn't want another Bail Organa, I passed.

The managers at this store who grab all of the SW stuff when it hits didn't appear to be in, which is why I was able to get new stuff.  ;D

I was fortunate enough to make a couple of new finds this weekend, the first in awhile.  I found the Wookiee Flyer and the Boba Fett Cup Set at two different Targets, so I'm caught up with vehicles/cups for now.  Still haven't seen the new Unleashed, outside of one Assaj a couple of weeks ago.  I was also able to pick up the new Hallmark Darth Vader (with sound) ornament during the Hallmark preview this past weekend.  Also of note, I picked up one of the MPire packs a week or so ago at Wal-Mart..and went back there on Saturday and they were completely sold out of them.  Kind of surprising to me that they sold that quickly.

(Finally) Found the Green Vulture Droid at Wal-Mart this morning, as well as the 500th Vader, which was the first I'd heard of it showing up at a non-K-Mart/TRU establishment.  To make you guys that bought them at either of those two retailers (except Ook, I think, who got it for 7.99) feel even worse, it rang up as 14.88.  Can't wait to (carefully) open it.

The new Unleashed continue to elude me, either through brick and mortar retailers' inability to stock much of anything, or Amazon/TRU.com's total inability to ship a nearly four month old preorder.   ::)

TRU had the megapacks.  But those dumb TRU employees were opening up the megapacks and putting the individual figures on the pegs.  If I had not seen it with my own eyes I would not believe it.  Nice :-X

At the downtown SLC Walmart on 1300 South and at the Lindon Wamart (near to Provo) the following figures were found and purchased:
Obi Wan Kenobi Pilot
Black Clone Pilot
Green Clone Commander
Red Shock Clone Trooper
AT-RT Driver
Mustfar Sentry

I was not there, I was late so all I got was Obi Wan Pilot which is the SA Obi Wan we want, and the cloak comes off, AND he fits in the starfighter, and his knees with his feet, waist, shoulders, elbows, hand and head all move anyway  but this is the case figure I have come up with that hit based on SSG.

The #6 clone is the shock trooper clone.
The single Commander is the Green Commander.
Rest fit. Only thing I cannot figure out is that there were 2 Black Clone pilots per case but I do not know what they replaced. Hopefully I find out tonight at a local Wally.

SW Episode III Collection 1, Wave 6

2x Darth Vader (EIII #11),
1x Clone Trooper (EIII #41),
1x R2-D2 (EIII #48),
1x Anakin Skywalker (EIII #50),
1x Commander Bacara (EIII #49),
2x Turbo Tank Driver (EIII #54),
2x Obi-Wan Pilot (EIII #56),
2x Flea Rider (EIII #55)

SW Episode III Collection 1, Wave 5, Rev. 1

2x Clone Trooper (EIII #6),
3x Darth Vader (EIII #11),
1x Clone Commander (eiii #33),

Most successful and satifying hunt I've had in a LONG time! First, here is the case I found tonight after scoring my own Green Commander, Shock Trooper, AT-RT (and my son scored an Obi Wan Pilot that he wanted for him because he doesn't want to "borrow" mine, he wanted his own!).

Case 87153A009
1 Green clone commander
1 Shock Trooper
1 AT-RT Driver
1 Obi Wan Pilot
2 Grevious (4 swords)
2 Darth Vader
1 SA Clone #42
1 Yoda
1 Emperor
1 Bacara

I took the Green Clone Commander, the Shock Trooper, the AT-RT Driver, and my son was with me and he bought the Obi Wan Pilot.

Then we went to another Wally and found 2 different cases. The first is the one above. The second I could not find the case number but here is the breakdown sort of:
2 Shock Trooper Clones
1 AT-RT
1 Green Clone Commander
1 R2D2
2 Anakin on Mustafar or Crispy Anakin
1 Yoda
1 Emperor

3 other figures that I believe are 2 Vaders and 1 Grevious but I could not be sure. Reason is there was a Dad there with his two sons and I told them about the new stuff. The oldest son collects the Galatic Heros, but then we opened up cases (there were 5 of the 85173A009 and 3 of the second one I listed) and each son took 1 of the Green Clone Commander, the AT-RT Driver, the Shock Trooper and the Obi Wan Pilot. Then one took an Anakin on Mustafar. The coolest thing was I had my 11 year old son with me and as we were walking out to the car, my son said "Dad, that is a great feeling to help others get excited about our hobby!" Let me tell you, I was extremely proud of my son.

The Black Clone Pilot has been found, and was there, I just didnt want him so I didn't mention him or look for him. Another collector who came about an hour after I did and finished opening and putting up cases found 2 of him. He is not in every case though and I think he will be the hardest figure to find of all of the new ones.

Target did their rearranging thing and brought new stuff out.  A bunch of 51, 52, 53, Vader Evolution, Build your lightsaber, Jedi vs sith pack.  I had the Evo pack in my hands for 10 minutes, I left empty handed.

Another Target had the same plus 500th Vader, like 20 of them.  For 14.99 I got him but I'm still not sure about it.  Wookie flyers were everywhere.

Stopped off at Target on my lunchbreak and picked up the 500th Vader.  They had two on the shelf, and both were fairly mangled on the bottom portion (the cardboard part).  I took the less damaged one.  They had just done their reset today (according to an employee I asked about the Evolutions set), and it looks like Star Wars still has a pretty nice sized section.  Not much new aside from the usual pegwarmers, although they did have one Crispy Anakin, and probably 4-5 Vaders on the pegs.  No Evolutions, Unleashed (1 Obi), or Battle Packs...although there were pricetags for all three.

I had a good hunt this evening and found a bunch of new figures.

I found at Target #51 thru #53, Capt. Antilles, Utapau Warrior, and Zett Jukasa. They apparently are coming 3 to a case, with the fourth figure being the AT-TE Gunner. I even found a red Royal Guard tonight too, though I do not believe that came with the new figures.

At Wal-Mart I found an interesting case on a pallet. It included the new Pilot Obi-Wan, which is a really GREAT figure, the AT-RT Driver, and the Green Clone Commander. I got all 3 of those, but also included in the case was an SA Clonetrooper, QD Clonetrooper (regular), Yoda #1, Emperor Palpatine, Grievous #1, Clone Pilot (regular), Cmdr. Bacara, R2-D2 #2 and Darth Vader! Vader is finally being shipped again, it's about time Hasbro did this. This Walmart had two of these cases, but they must have gotten some different cases in as well, cause there were over a dozen Vaders on the pegs.

Yeah that's what I thought too, but this must be a variant of that case. I opened the case myself, so I know the Shocktrooper wasn't in there. I wonder if there's a case where you find the Shocktrooper and not the Green Cmdr....

Here's what I saw at Target this morning. They did their reset:

No new figures at all, but man, was it a great feeling being the only SW collector at the store at 8am with new stuff to be found. Good times.

At one of my local Wally's today I found a ton of Zett Jakassa, Capt. Antilles, plenty of Utapaun Warriors, and a few Tarkin's (seem Tarkin was short packed in those cases but I did not see the case as I found the stuff on the pegs). Found plenty of 46 and 47, Ask Aak and Meena Tills. Tons, I mean, I stopped counting at like 25 of the AT-TE's.I also found a blue guard (left it) and 1 red guard that I picked up.
I walked away with
Clone Shock Trooper (hid from the other day)
Green Clone Commander (hid from the other day for my son)
Tarkin
Red Guard
and
Red Eye Anakin #28!
Now I can return my other #28 and get a new figure (I hate the eye shadow and that is why he was never opened as I wasn't sure if I would keep that figure).

Also, saw and passed on a Jedi vs Sith Battlepack. Anakin looks way too girlish in the face, its horrible. The Obi Wan looks horrible also, and Grevious I have one of the deluxe (best version I think) and one of the single card. That's enough. Only figure I liked was Asjaa. Only compliant on her is that her tatoo's on the side of her head are missing. So $20 for 1 figure is not worth it.

Overall, a good day. Now I need to find the Clone Evolutions 3 pack. Still undecided on the Sith one.

Good hunting.

Here's what I saw at Target this morning.

Hey, it looks kind of like my Target, with the obvious exceptions being that the shelves below the figures are empty, and there are about three times the amount of Neimoidians and Clone Pilots!  So, actually, it looks nothing like my Target.   :-\

As far as recent purchases go, I guess the Holographic Leia figure (when it arrives) will be my latest purchase, but I'm not even sure why I got that to begin with.  Caught up in the moment I guess.   :-\

Well Target this morning was the place to be.  They had a bunch of clones and by a bunch I mean like 20.  Commanders, #6, SAs and of course pilots.  Unfortunately they were all the older "variants", so I'll have to wait on the new paint schemes.  Antilles is not warming the pegs as I originally thought, he is selling as good as jedi the kid.

I am surprise how go the Sith/Jedi thing is selling.  The only figure that even looks good is Assaj, the rest are either rehashes or crap.  Look at Ani's face, pleaseeeeeeeeeeee.
Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: CHEWIE on July 29, 2005, 12:10 PM
Yeah, the Anakin's face is pretty bad.  I've thought about getting an extra Anakin Evolutions set just to do a head swap with this figure.

2 AT RT, 2 Obi Wan Clone, 1 Shock Trooper for fellow collectors tonight.

I got the only shock trooper out of 22 cases on the Walmart Floor. The others had the all white #6. 

Watch a scalper take the 20 other AT RT's out of each case, about 12 Obi Wan Pilots, 12 Green Commanders.  Was a nice guy but I sure hate scalping.

Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: TheBlackDog on July 30, 2005, 07:41 AM
Yeah, what sucks about it is the stocker is really cool but he did not want all 22 cases opened because they were having to take a good part of them to the back. The stocker opened about 10 cases and said 12 had to go back. So I got what I needed to cover local collectors, and then left. I came back and the scalper had opened all the cases and was taking ALL of the AT RT. I hope the stocker doesn't now turn around and stop opening cases for us, and helping us out.  Only consoluation is that he kept saying how nervous he was that these would not sell or sell at a profit. Here's hoping they hit everywhere in sufficient quantity that ebay is not a factor and that he has to return them. Looking at ebay that just might be the case.

I was able to pick up a few figures this weekend at Target....#51 Captain Antilles, #52 Zett Jukassa, and #53 Utapaun Warrior.  They had a couple of the first two, but the Warrior seems to be the best seller of this wave...I got the last one.  Otherwise, nothing much else new...no signs of Evolutions here yet, and I haven't seen the clone repaints either.  There did seem to be some more #6 (white) clones, Vaders, and a Grievous show up that I hadn't seen for quite some time.  Target seems to be the only place I find anything new anymore, Wal-Mart is stuck in a bit of a glut right now...at least ours is.

Today was hunting by default, looking for supplies we need for camping the rest of the week.

1 Target had not reset but had put out the Wookie Flyers. Passed on that, way to big IMO.

Other Target  had reset and SW had 1 end cap, and about 20 pegs in the Toy isle. They had 2 Jedi vs. Sith Battlepcks, 1 500th Vader left, and the build your own lightsaber. I swore off buying a Jedi vs. Sith Battlepack, but I was right, my son REALLY wants one so I'll know what I'll be buying soon.  The regular figures were worked through so if they had put out anything new either scalpers or hopefully a few collectors got the new stuff.

Nothing new at Walmarts.

Yesterday I grabbed #51 - #53. The only good figure in this batch (IMHO) is the Utapau Warrior - grabbed two of those to open so Tion Meddon wouldn't be so lonely.

The Zett Jukassa was nicely painted but I would have liked this character to have the same articulation as the other Collection 2 Jedi. It's almost like Hasbro's saying "We're throwing George a bone so his son can have an action figure, but we're not going overboard on making it a GOOD figure, 'cause we're jealous that we can't have action figures made of ourselves." Perhaps I've over-analyzing, but knee joints and ball jointed shoulders would have gone a LONG way with this figure.

Captain Antilles just flat out sucks like everyone else here has been saying. Why the didn't just modify the torso of Bail Organa and use that as the body is beyond my comprehension.

Last night went into the Manahawkin, NJ WalMart to find that there was a freight pallet with two Collection 1, Wave 6 cases. One case had already been opened and all of the clones were removed.

The second case had been so badly crushed that length-wise, the case itself was now an inch shorter. However, it hadn't been opened up, so I cut into it.

There was 1 each of Pilot Obi-Wan, AT-RT Driver and Green Clone Commander.

There was a #6 Quick Draw Clone in there but it wasn't the Shocktrooper Red Variant, it was all white.

I can sorta live with the paint-op variants, but why make it so not everyone of these new cases has the new Red Shocktrooper?

So I grabbed these three figures and then left.

This morning I went to the Brick, NJ WalMart and my friend who works for Hasbro was there. He was glad to see me 'cause he had the goods for me.

An employee at this store was taking all of the Red Shocktroopers OUT of the cases and putting back in another Vader or Yoda or Grievous figure in it's place. So he found a case with six Red Shocktroopers in it. Four AT-RT Drivers and Four Green Clone Commanders. Another guy who we both know came in shortly after me and we split everything up amongst us.

So between the two trips here's what I was able to get:

2x Pilot Obi-Wan
3x AT-RT Driver
2x Clone #6 (Red Shocktrooper Variant)
2x Clone Commander #33 (Green Variant)

This is correct; the sentry is not in the rev1,rev3 or reg. wave 6 cases-only rev2-why they did it i dunno-it may(the sentry) be hard to locate later on unless it's packed as a refresher in the "final 12" case assortments

Finds today were nothing new, but I was at 2 different Walmarts here in the SLC area, and I know that 2 others got the same case in which consisted of putting out 6 green clone 3 packs at each store!
On another issue. I ran into a Hasbro merchandiser which is different then the rep. The merchandiser was not sure of new stuff coming out but remembers that it is coming sooner rather then later. Anyway, if you run into a Hasbro person at a store find out if they are the rep or a merchandiser. The reps I guess have large territories while the merchandisers cover certain stores. That and the rep knows alot more about the line. Man, when I am off teaching, I would love to be a Hasbro merchandiser!

My dirty undies dude, the whites!

I am the Walrus?  I am the Walrus. 

Seriously, I actually found new basic figures for the first time since June 14, and I only had to drive 50 miles away to find them!  What that says about retail in my area, or me for the matter, I don't know, but a Wal-Mart alongside the interstate had stocked a case of Collection 2, so I was able to get my 1 each of 51-53, so I'm happy.  They'd also stocked the Evolutions Anakin/Vader, the Ultimate Lightsaber set, and the Jedi vs. Sith Battle Pack, but I already had the former and didn't want the latter. 

The thing that I found odd was that the case assortment I found of Collection 2 seemed different from those I'd seen reported so far.  There were three each of the new guys (Antilles, Zett, and the US), two of the AT-TE Gunners, and one Red Royal Guard.  Every other figure (Neimoidians and Clone Pilots and Bail Organa, nothing else) had about an inch of dust on them, and those were the only new figures there, so who knows.

Still on the lookout for the Clone repaints and 54-56, as I have not seen  hide nor hair of them and the pegs are so full of Clone Pilots, Neimoidians, and Wookiees that I probably won't see them anytime soon.  :-\

I really think these Walmart resets are going to do us in for awhile! Only 3 pegs across, and four pegs in each row going down for 3 3/4 figures. That and the stores are now only putting out minimal product. I wonder if this last wave is done, or if we'll see more of the colored clones?

Ok, on Monday I found about 10 more Shock Troopers. 3 went on layaway for a fellow collector, bought 2 for trade/sale to fellow collectors. They went yesterday. Then today I found 2 more Shock Troopers, tons of the AT RT's and traded for a Black Clone Pilot. Now to find that Evolutions Clones!

After going 0 for 10 over the weekend, I got a nice little haul this morning. Scored the Anakin Evolutions set, 2 Shocktroopers, 1 AT-RT Driver, and 1 Obi-Wan Pilot. The latter two being my 2nd of each. It drives me nuts when I go looking around for several days and hit a lot of stores and find nothing, then casually go to a store and find a lot.
Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: TheBlackDog65 on August 17, 2005, 02:35 AM
Tonight I saw more Shock Troopers, more AT RT, more Obi Wan Pilots, etc. Problem was the stockers were not putting them out because
a) the pegs were filled because of the smaller space
b) the number of Nemodian Peg Warmers and Darth Sidious, and Antilles.

Anyway, they did confirm that they had 13 pallets of SW stuff in the back.  So after the new Evoutions finds, I think I am good to go until the newer stuff hits with Gree, Bly and 501st!

1x shocktrooper at TRU. (http://www.cheesebuerger.de/images/midi/frech/a076.gif)

This TRU also had the mother lode of new clones--green commanders, black pilots, Bacara, Crispy McAnakin, #6 and #41 clones, a load of the basic Vaders. For now I only got the one shocktrooper.

Even better, when I went to another TRU the other day my receipt had a code to do a satisfaction phone survey and I got $3 off my next purchase. So my shocktrooper was only $3.18, plus my new receipt had the same thing so I did another survey for another $3 off next time. Needless to say, I'm a happy camper and gave them lots of good ratings on the second survey. ;D

I wish I'd've found some of these sales before I tapped out. :( I'd sure like to score some Jedi Council sets at TRU. I never cared anything about having the Council; didn't even like the most of the Jedi in I, but since III, I'd really like to have the Council base for the sitting members circa III.

Anyhow, I got the Mustafar Sentry in the mail today. Pretty neat. His base is perfect for Stumpy Anakin to lie on. :D

New case with Mustafar figure contains Mustafar sentry, SA Clone, Spinning Attack Yoda, Vader, Obi Wan Pilot, Bacara, Darth Sidious, R2D2 #48.  No panied clone variants which I fear are now done in my area. No evolutions here which is what I would really like to find.

This has been a great week for SW toy finds!

Earlier in the week I scored the Mustafar Sentry (x3) and more AT-RT Drivers (x4).

Yesterday morning and last night I scored:
2x Shocktrooper
5x Black Jumpsuit Clone Pilots
3x Clone Evolutions Set  :o
2x Sith Evolutions Set  :o

Very good week for me.
Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: DoctorPadawan on August 19, 2005, 12:07 PM
Wow, this has been a good week!   :o

First of all, Darth Slothus hooked me up with a Green Clone Commander, Sith Eyes Anakin, AT-RT Driver, Mustafar Sentry, Pilot Obi-Wan, Unleashed Vader, Unleashed Sidious vs. Yoda, and he's sending a Shocktrooper as well!  He really hooked me up and I am forever in his debt for this.

Then today I walked into the local WM and they had pegs overflowing with the 51-53 wave, 500th Vaders, and the new Unleashed, and I was able to get an UL Ventress, the Sith Evolutions set, and the Clone Evolutions set!   :o

The fact that I am (for the moment) completely caught up on ROTS stuff is a very cool experience.   8)

I had a nice day today as I found the new Vader Unleashed, Yoda/Sidious Unleashed, and Anakin to Vader Evolutions set at Target.  Wal-Mart also had the Anakin to Vader Evo. Set, as well as the newer Force Battlers.  500th Vaders all over the place at both Target and Wal-Mart.  Basic figures was pretty much the usual suspects.  Quite happy to find some new stuff though, can't wait for the Clone and Sith Evo packs to show up now.

Picked up 2 Green Clone Commanders, 12 Shocktroopers and a Nemoidian Warror (just to pair up with my other open one)...

At K-Mart I found my MOMC Tarkin, Ask Aak and Meena Tills figures I've been going crazy trying to get.

I think with the exception of the Target Wave 3 Cup w/Figure sets (Vader, Leia, Stormtrooper) and any new BattlePacks that come out (any one except Jedi vs. Sith). I'm all caught up for a change.

Feels good.

This REALLY has been a good week.

Title: Star Wars figures I actually found at WM!!!!
Post by: Loopy_Leia on August 20, 2005, 10:26 PM
I was just browsing the Chattanooga, TN Wal*Mart today to see if they had reset the store, or not. Apparently they had because every peg was loaded down with figures. I thought for sure they were all going to be the same one's I had seen in the past but boy was I in for a surprise!! Here's a list of what I saw :

Unleashed Figures
Asajj Ventress
Darth Vader
Obi-Wan (ep III)
Yoda/Sidious

Revenge of the Sith Figures
Commander Bacara (Qty 3-4)
Clone Pilot (Qty 12)
Clone Trooper # 41 (Qty 5-6)
AT-RT Driver (Qty 4-5)
Royal Guard I (Qty 1)
Mas Amedda (Qty 2)
Polis Massan (Qty 1)
Mustafar Sentry (Qty 2-3)

Evolution packs (I still haven't seen the clone one's..  )
Anakin to Vader (4)

I am still amazed that I saw these figures. It just blows my mind. I have looked for weeks and all I saw were the same things. Before you ask, no I didn't pick up any..*sigh* got to have money to do that! I would have bought the AT-RT driver, and the Clone Trooper # 41's mostly but I think I might have picked up the Asajj Ventress unleashed figure because I liked the pose.

Found a boatload of recent figures this morning at Walmart. They had every figure since the AT-TE Gunner wave. Lots and lots of Obi-Wan Pilots and AT-RT Drivers and SA Clones. Finally found a crispy Anakin and Mustafar Sentry and picked them up. No color variant clones though. They also had at least 30 500th Vaders. I was expecting this to be as hard to find as the 300th Fett, I'm guessing that won't be the case.

Also had a run-in with the Hot Wheels collectors. What's the first word out of their mouths when looking at the SW figures? But of course it's "what's these worth?" Assclowns....

I had to go out of town today so I decided to stop by a mall on my way home, and I'm glad I did! I found a Shaak Ti on clearance for $2.84 after tax at Suncoast!  ;D I passed on her and a couple of others on 4/2 because I thought they might be on the pegs for a while. I was right about the others, but I hadn't seen her for a while. Closer to home I found #48 R2 and a Mustafar Sentry at Wal-Mart. All I'm looking for now is the Tarkin wave and the Sith Evolutions set!

Got the clone EVO's Clones and sith(wave 3) tonite at Wal mart. Just grab the case off the pallet and run baby! Isn't that what everyone says" leave no clone".

Got the New Tie at Target(used DCPI)-havn't noticed or heard anyone getting these in the isle yet....is Target waiting on a certain release date to stock them? Found it strange there was no place for it on the shelves or anywhere in the isle-even the Toy dept guy didn't know it existed until he punched in my DCPI into his scanner-then went in the back to grab one! What an awesome piece this is! I got all emotional at the checkout when I bought it :-[

I don't think we'll see the white version until the clones are shipping 4 to a case, instead of being split with 2 Anakin or 2 Sith. When the clones ship 4 at a time I have heard that the Anakin and Sith will ship at 2 per case also.

Still on the hunt for a sith.

I don't have pictures but on the 2 clones I got, 1 I gave to DeanPaul and it was pretty normal, the one I kept I noticed tonight that my Ep. III clone has battle damage or paint weat all up and down his front strip. I like it!

I picked up a Black Clone Pilot for my son and gave my son the Black Clone Pilot and a Shock Trooper today. Today I picked up a Sith Evolutions a friend had hid.  Now to find the Jedi Temple Assult Pack and then hopefully have a month break from Star Wars before the last 12 hit.

Also at a local TRU today was the Hoth Attack set that has a tripod blaster cannon, a snow trooper gunner, two armed snow troopers and a figure that looked like General Veers. Thought it was ok but nothing wonderful.

Well - impulsively I hit the local KMart at 9:45 PM tonight before it closed.

When I got there I found that they had the freight pallets waiting for the overnight crew to stock the toy section.

On the last pallet I checked was a case of the KMart exclusive Jedi Temple Assault and Imperial Throne Room Battle Packs.

The Jedi Temple assault set is nice. I would have preferred they pack in a #28 Anakin w/Sith Eyes then the #1? Anakin figure. And of course as we've all discussed already, a Gray/White Pilot? Just like with the Shocktrooper repaint of #6, I don't mind these 501st/Special Ops blue troopers being based on the #6 body either. I'm glad they packed in the extra rifles.

The Imperial Throne Room set makes for a nice packaging piece, not much else. These will be sitting at most stores I would think. I would have preferred they included both Dignitaries instead of only one and then a Stormtrooper. Last I checked, a Stormtrooper never entered the Palpatine's throne room on the Death Star II.

In my area they rang up for $27 each. (ouch) and came in a case of 6 sets (3 of each variety). I wouldn't have packed them equally like that. There are bound to be lots of collectors (like myself) who want to grab more than just one or two to build squads of the 501st. I grabbed all three from this case so I could open up two and have six of them to "march" behind Anakin.

So it's 3 Battle Packs down, 4(?) Battle Packs to go.... (Jedi vs. Separatists, Rebels vs. Empire, Hoth Assault & Coruscant Clones - am I forgetting any?)

OK Anton I got my case today, (they held it for me till I got there) I demanded the case box as well

 Unfortunately there's no indication of Lot quantites ect

the AIM# is 310700366115( this is for 5 pice figs (battle packs)) the item description in the computer doesn't specify whetther these are exclusive or not...it's the same AIM# for the regular battle packs(sith VS ect). So,  if you order it you don't know what you're getting- Luckily, I got the right thing ;) 

The KMART AIM# is the equivelant of the TARGET DCPI#.

At least in my case(CASE Pack of 6,there MAY be cases of 8 out there) there was no indication on the box about how many total quantity there's gonna be-- like what is presumed from the TIE CASE from Target.

Anyway, you can use this AIM# to check store quantities/and order....it worked for me in 2 stores! ;D

The KMART AIM# is the equivelant of the TARGET DCPI#.

Your stores must work differently than these lame stores out here in the IE. I was told they don't have any kind of system like that at two different Kmarts.

As for purchases I picked up Clone(Yellow) and Sith Evos today at TRU.

Post by: Darth Slothus on August 30, 2005, 08:54 PM
Yeah I had lazy employees saying the same thing until I talked to the store managers..then wow ..there IS a way to get stuff from a KMART???!! ;D

They were more then ready to take my numbers to punch in.

I know that one of my Targets won't bend an inch for collectors(collectah hatahs) >:(. So they won't even check DCPI's for you-can you believe they work in sales and DON'T wanna make a buck?). Depends on the flexibility/willingness of the store I guess. :-\

The AIM# is legit however

The one thing that impressed me about the Kmart manager in Lancaster is that he actually said "hey I don't care, if I can make a sale then it's good for me"- and I'm thinking ..'that's how ANYONE in sales is supposed to act/think. Unfortunately, the reality is most sales folk don't behave like this. And ...please don't gimme any crap about minimum wage, ect. There's actually plenty of folks willing to work hard for minimum wage(so's as long as they have a job period) So I say fire the folks with the wrong attittudes. Glad I never had the attitude 'like the world owed me something free and handed to me' it's not realistic...hell, I bet if I thought that way I'd still be at minimum too. ::)

Found a bought a lot of stuff yesterday,

- a Tie fighter, two clone evolution packs, a jet trooper and a deluxe grevious which I had passed up previously.

Won 10 loose black clone pilots on e-bay on Sunday. Paid $5.60 a piece shipped.

NOt sure if this is the proper forum for posting this, but does anyone else think the quality of the paint job on the Target cups has been slipping?  I was looking at the most recent set that Slothus picked up for me and the characters are small and the paint is pretty sloppy.  Anyone agree/disagree?

Last RotS stuff I got is another Anakin to Vader Evolution Set, only  this time  it has the corrected scar on EP2's Anakin.  Prior to that, I got me a Poliss Massan.  ::)

There are so little new figures on the shelves, I might end up getting the Vader Droid  :-Xbefore the Clone Evolutions appear around here...

I'm current, but there has been nothing  to purchase of late. Bought an extra Black Clone and 3 SA Clone 41 to customize. Other then that it seems that Targets are bare, Walmarts are either bare or have peg warmers, and I can't get to a TRU during the week. I'm enjoying the break!

I found and picked up the (final?) 3 cup sets at Target yesterday: Leia, Vader, and Stormtrooper.  I've always been a fan of the cup sets, and was quite happy to find them...but paying $13 a piece really does seem too high.  These were actually "in the system" for once, the first time this year I think.  I guess any "figure exclusive" Target gets must just automatically be priced at $13, which is too pricey.  Anyways, nice to find something new.  Now if those Clone and Sith Evo sets would start showing up around here.

A local TRU put out 10 cases of the 2 Clone 2 Anakin Evolutions set. Helped some collectors get some, and I got an extra. Two is good for me on those.

I also got from a fellow collector/friend the JTA. I had mixed feelings about it but am glad I did it. The Anakin sucks as we all know, and I had passed on the Clone Pilot (my son got the one DeanPaul got for me early this year). So now I'll have a grey to go with the Black I had. I LOVE the Clones! Though not perfect, they are a nice edition and look good. Now all I need are Bly, Gree (maybe) and Tactical Ops Clone x2 and I am good!

Not sure it counts as RotS, but since it has Grievous in it, I think it does: I got today the Jedi vs Sith Battlepack. Frankly, the only reedeming features in there are Asajj Ventress and Grievous, asuming you didn't already had the Sneak Preview version of the General.

The Yavin Anakin and Obi-Wan figures are not bad, although they are barely average, since they both have limited articulation and a stiff right hip (I've read reports of the joint breaking if the leg is forced forward), and Obi-Wans Clone Armor is even uglier than yesteryear's Clone Biker's.

Yoda is the sculpt from the hover chair, and is really no match for #3 Yoda, although It has cool Sith eyes...

Very impressive set up and pic there KBZ, quite cool.  Still haven't seen any sign of the Clone/Stormtrooper Evo sets around here, really hope I'm able to pick up at least one.  Retail here continues to be fairly dry, at least as far as basic figures go.  No new basic figs (usual pegwarmers), no Evo sets (Anakin came and went quickly), and that's about it.  500th Vaders have been fairly easy to find, and we've gotten the newer Force Battlers and Jedi Force figures if anyone cares about those.  Same Unleashed suspects as well (Obi, Anakin, some Assaj).

I've sent a handful of these to people who need them - I'm hoping to buy one more of the yellow set to round up to a nice even (yet odd number) 15.

No big deal right?  Well, aside from the black pilot, I actually have one of every figure (which ends up being one of almost every figure) I want anyway.  I'm missing a couple of Jedi, Anakin/Obi in the 20's, Mon Mothma and Padme but otherwise I'm up to date.  How the hell did that happen?

I haven't seen any of the other version yet - and no one has to my knowledge.

Congrats Brent, it always feels nice to catch up (at least for a little bit).  I'm hoping to get to that point before the "Final 12" show up as well, only a few more figures to go.  I need the final two Evo sets (and the repaint trooper one if we see it anytime soon), and then three more basic figs outside of the Final 12 and I think I'll be caught up as well.  I think Matt has hooked me up with two of the three, so its just the Shocktrooper repaint (and Evo sets) to be complete as I want/need to be.  Its always nice to have a moment to take a breath ;).

As far as recent purchases, I received the remote control R2 today from FedEx, so that's my most recent purchase.  Although it was $20 plus shipping, it is a fun little toy and I'm glad I picked it up.

Going to another Walmart, one of the other guys hanging out for SW said that the manager had just told him before I arrived that they had gotten them in as well, but were locked in the office until October 1st when some type of end cap is going to be put up. The context in which I heard the story seems to sound lagit, and believe me, I take everything managers say with a grain of salt. So I wonder what's so big about Oct 1st?

Confirm that the new ones are out. I have a friend who had a friend who found and pulled 1 Gree and 1 Bly and put them on layaway for each of them. I was there when my friend got the Gree and Bly. Strange thing is that the rest of the 4 cases had never been put out. Asst Store Manager would not bring out the cases this a.m. but promised if I showed up at a certain time that he would have them brought out and I could look through them before they are put on the pegs.  Hopefully that is true. Anyway, I saw em, hopefully I get them tonight!

Found the case myself tonight and got Bly and Gree. Here is by breakdown and info:

I found case 8573A00J with C1 W7R1 05 at Walmart tonight. The Walmarts in Utah got 2 cases (the ones that put em out). The case breakdown is as follows:

1 Gree
1 Bly
1 Wookie Commando
1 Cat Minn
1 Passel Argente
1 Grevious Bodyguard White
1 Nemodian Commander
1 Obi Wan Pilot
1 AT RT Driver
2 Darth Vaders
1 R2 D2 #48 with sound

I have to admit, I am quite surprised at this wave. I thought I wanted Bly and Gree. I kept the Clones, the Wookie (he looks good), a Grevious Bodyguard (to match the visual dictionary) and the Nemodian Commander DOES not deserve to receive any crap! He is actually a really nice looking commander. Now, if ReHashbro sends more then 1 per case, then Hasbro deserves crap, but I like that figure.
I passed on the Seperatists.

Sorry, don't ask for pictures, no digital camera until Oct/Nov.

Post by: Ryan on September 27, 2005, 02:39 AM
Hasbro might has well of stuck a Vacumn cleaner in my bank account tonight, cause I got cleaned out. My rundown:

1 Gree (An absolutely ****** figure, don't know why I bought it)
1 Bly
1 Passel Argente
1 Cat Miin
1 Grievous' Body Guard
1 wookiee Commando
1 Neimodiamn Commander
5 (yes 5) Black Clone Pilots
3 Shocktroopers (the red coruscant ones in case you don't know your clones)
1 more Clone Evolution (bringing me to 4)
1 more #41 Clone Bringing me to about 40-45
1 Sith Eyed Anakin (I kept passing but finally picked him up)


If Vader isn't pegwarming yet he will be. The Shocktroopers and Black Clones ship in a case of 12 that is long and skinny it has one of those display case things, there is nop fancy artwork on it but I grabbed one anyways, it comes with like 4 Vaders and a Few Bacarras and #50 anakins, the clones are sometimes shocktrooper and sometimes plain white #6s. There were afew Green commanders too. If I had more money, by this time I could easily have 25 shcoktroopers, 75-100 SA Clones, 35 AT-RT Drivers, 2 AT-TE gunners, 100 Clone pilots, 50 #6 clones, 50 Red commanders, 25 Green Commanders, and a few more of the other army builders, as well as about 10 clone Evo packs I have seen that man,. but I don't.  :-[

Some of the figures rang up at $5.88 while others were $4.77 make sure to tell the clerk if they ring up wrong, they should all be $4.77.

Peeked in the action figure aisle at Wal-Mart this morning while picking up some groceries before work.  I wasn't expecting anything since the pegs have been crammed with the usual suspects for awhile now.  To my surprise, they expanded the number of basic figure pegs at this Wal-Mart and I was able to pick up Obi Pilot, AT-RT Driver, and the Shocktrooper repaint.  Plus, the prices had been lowered to $4.77 on the figures, which is certainly welcome to me.  Nothing #57 and beyond, but at least something new (at least to me).  I think I am officially caught up on basic figs until the "Final 12" start to hit, which I guess is now ;).

I'm glad I'm not the only one who found this case. I thought I was losing it when I didn't see the rest of the wave on the pegs. Lucky enough I was able to get my fill of Bly/Gree but am still on the hunt for the rest.

Oh, found these three at Walmart on Tuesday.

Yeah, I got the Wave 7 (no revision) case Sunday morning which HAS all 7 ( but only X1 each WTF Hasbro?). looking at the case assortments for wave 7 at Entertainment Earth.com- I'm severely dissapointed that Hasbro is trying to repush all their pegwarmers back on us again instead of giving us multi's of the new product :(

Totally agree! I don't see the rest of this wave being terribly hard to find as of now so I'm not sweating it too much.  I do hope though that they don't short change these cases and push more of the cases with the repacks in it. Thus making 60, 61, 62 and 63 a pain to find.

Found at 1 Walmart near me 26 cases of AOOL and AOOK. One has 1 of Bly and Gree and Wookie and Nemodian; the other has 1 of Bly Gree and Wookie Commando.  Rest are repacks. Case AOOQ is 12 Vaders.
The other Walmart had 7 cases of AOOL and AOOK. Each store had 4 cases of AOOQ. 

Anyway picked up 5 sets of Bly and Gree for local collectors. They'll be easy to find. Now for the 501st and R4!

Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: DoctorPadawan on September 30, 2005, 04:29 PM
I honestly think that the 501st "find" over at GH was a hoax.  The photo looks like it's been doctored all to hell, there is no receipt for proof, and we are supposed to believe that the 501st was the only figure from that assortment hanging around at all.  If it is legit, I'll retract my doubts, but with nobody else seeing these at all, I call shenanigans.

The local Target apparently got one case of the 57-63 wave this morning.  Another local guy got the Bly, Gree, Miin, and Passel a few hours before I found the Guard, Neimoidian, and Wookiee (aka "Pegwarmer Redux") this afternoon; all the other figures from the case (2 Vaders, 1 R2, 1 AT-RT Driver, and 1 Pilot Obi-Wan) were still hanging around as well.

It seems that locally, we'll never see the Tarkin, Antilles, or AT-RT Driver waves again. There's too much other crap.

Last night I found a bunch of early (April 2nd) figures at a local WM, and I don't think they can sell through them.

Of course, I thought that about these figures months ago, and haven't seen them for a long time. It was good to see a 3PO and blue Guard on the pegs again.

The solid cases of Vader is a disaster waiting to happen.  He's popular, for sure, but I don't think shipping him 12 to a case along side cases he's 2 or 3 in is necessary.

Solid cases, huh? Shouldn't they have done that during the movie's summer and not at its end....

No kidding.  I hear they're going to ship solid cases of Darth Maul for Christmas...  ::)

The local WMs did their "Toyland" reset (which was more of a stocking than a reset) over the course of the last two days.  One WM got six of those "long cases" in addition to a case of the Obi-Wan Pilot wave, sans Sentry, to shove onto the pegs in front of the Neimoidians and Clone Pilots.  Out of 72 figures in the long cases, there was one Shocktrooper (which is now on its way to Jim), and no Shocktroopers in the 54-55 case.  A lot of Vaders, a lot of black Clone Pilots, a lot of SA and #6 Clones, and a crapload of Bacaras and R2s. 

Showing why they still have full pegs all the time, the other local WM restocked with about four cases worth of the first Collection 1 and 2 cases.  Threepios, Dookus, and Blue Guards, OH MY!  Stacks and stacks of Jedi vs. Separatists and Rebels vs. Empire Battle Packs, and as usual, absolutely no Evolutions to be seen.

Aside from that one case of 57-63 yesterday, Target continues to be rather useless, still selling Battle Arenas at full price and those AWESOME clamshell things have yet to sell to anyone.

After going 38 days without stocking a single new basic figure, the local Target store FINALLY put out! 

Someone beat me to the #57 Bly and #60 GrevGuard they had, but I walked away with 1x each of #58 Wookiee, #59 Gree, #61 Senator Dork, #62 Lady Senator Dork, #63 Nemoidian Commander.

Good to see Targets are getting this wave in too... they rang up at $5.44 each under the same Collection 1 DPCI (for those that like that sort of info).

It's looking more and more like that was a fraudulent report, especially since he said they were 3x per case in the case he found.  A quick look at EE this morning shows that Hasbro CHANGED the case assortment - the 501st is not at 3-per-case in ANY of the case assortments now...

From Friday through Sunday I picked up the following:

1x KB 9-Pack w/Silver Vader (*bleck*)
2x Rebels vs. Empire Battle Packs
1x Jedi vs. Separatists Battle Pack
3x Commander Gree
3x Commander Bly
3x General Grievous Bodyguard (white)
3x Wookie Commando
3x Nemoidian Commander
2x Passel Argente
2x Cat Miin

I think that's everything.

I'm starting to think that report on GH may have been bogus as well - 2 per case seems to be the best ratio that's going to be available.

Based on that HORRIBLE rev 2 case pack, I'm hoping the majority of the cases shipped to the stores is the original Col. 2, Wave 6 ratio where you get 1 each of the holo figures and wookie and then 2 each of 501st trooper and the r4 unit. The other figures are completely un-necessary (except for perhaps Meena Tills), the rest have been easy to come by. If I had the choice on how to pack this case it would have been:

2x Aalya Secura (holo)
2x Plo Koon (holo)
2x Wookie Heave Gunner
3x Tactical Ops Trooper
3x R4-P17

Of course that would make sense, which is why it wasn't done.  :P

Here's a trick instead of going to a regular floor or toy associate, go to the electronics deptartment. Tell them you have this number and they will bring em out for you. Thats what I did yesterday and today.

As for "finds" picked up 2 more Clone Battlepacks. One for me as an opener and one for Spudtrooper.

Picked up two of the Clone Attack on Coruscant and 2 sets of the Lava Duel figures today.

Had quite an adventure trying to get them. All of the exclusives seem to be in, but many stores are holding them for the holiday aisle resets. Which is lame.

If you can get a manager to tell you that they are being held for the 16th, get his/her name and tell him/her you'll be back on the 16th to get one of each item and you'll be asking specifically for him/her for assistance. If the manager replies "we don't hold items..." cut them off and say "but you're holding items you have in stock now."  ;D

Nice paint-op on the vehicle, too much like Anakin's from the Clone Wars - I guess GL just liked the look and wanted to use it on a starfighter that showed up in a movie.

Can't wait to see if my ROTS Plo Koon figure fits in the cockpit. What do you think the chances are? I'm betting on slim-to-none.  :P  ::)  ;D

In the back room they had the Clone Attack on Coruscant and Plo Koon Jedi starfighter. The trick is getting someone to look it up and get you one. I took a pass on the ship and the Sith but I did pick up another Clone Evo and the Clone Attack pack.

I had a very good morning today.  First, I caught up on the basic figures by finding Bly, Gree, Passel and Cat Miin at the local Wal-Mart.  Then, a trip to Target with Jeff's DCPI numbers that have saved me repeatedly these last few months, resulted in my very own Clone Attack on Coruscant Battle Pack and Plo Koon's Jedi Starfighter. 

I think the trick is to find someone who doesn't look like they know the first thing about toys, much less Star Wars in particular, with a scanner gun, and ask if they could check stock status for you.  Thankfully, Target has no shortage of attractive young females, and they're usually more than happy to check the numbers for you.  Or, as someone else suggested here, you can always call them on the phone, try to sound all official and say, "I need a stock status check on an item in the toy department, DCPI is 888-88-8888" and see if they will hold it at the Customer Service desk.

I got an extra Plo Koon to pilot the JSF today at Target, and I proceeded to do the worst customization ever on his skirt.  One steak knife, one extremely shaky hand, and a Plo Koon skirt later, Plo Koon can now sit in his JSF without difficulty, although his belt is a little on the ragged side.   ;D

I also got the Mustafar Vader and Obi-Wan figures at the same Target.  As usual, DCPIs were used since they weren't on the shelf, and the case he brought out was unopened.  He was very nice about it and even let me pick and choose so I wouldn't wind up with a cross-eyed Hayden or Ewan.  :)

I also had him check on the Utapau Stealth Clone Trooper while I was there, and (I got to look at the screen on the gun) it said that it wasn't in stock at the time, and that it had been discontinued (which I know is Target-speak for "This cannot be reordered"). 

The DCPIs have been an immense help to me this year: the Target Clone, the TIE Fighter, Plo Koon's JSF, Clone Attack on Coruscant, and now the Mustafar Vader and Obi-Wan.  Jeff, if it weren't for you....  ;)

I find it interesting that one of my local targets really wanted a potential return customer to duke it out on the 16th in competition to get these exclusives( on several failed manager discussions earlier in the week) while right under there noses they sold out of all their lava figs! I had to get mine at another store from an employee who was only on his 4th day! Ha! I foiled Target! They didn't want my money(make a sale) but I showed them in the long run!

During my lunch break today, I found my first (and only) figure from the "Final 12" so far, the Wookiee Commando (#58) - at Target.  It was the only one #57 and up on the pegs, so I must have missed the rest or they weren't put out yet.  This particular Target also had an endcap stocked full of the Lava Reflection Figures, Plo Koon's Starfighter, and the Coruscant Battle Packs.  I was tempted by the Battle Packs, but couldn't afford it this week.  We'll see, looked neat though.  I kind of like the Lava figs too, but $13 might just be too much for me to spend.

I hate the Lava figures at Target.  I was there on the release day for ROTS figures and saw tons (about 30) Lave Vaders and passed on it.  Yep, didn't even get 1 of them because they STINK!!!!  I hope the scalpers choak on them!

Picked up a few things this weekend. Sam's Club ARC-170 exclusive (An another for a friend), another Clone Attack on Coruscant pack, another Clone Trooper Evolution, Sith Evolution (for a friend), and four more black Clone Pilots.

I saw a Cat Miin and several Lava Obi-Wan and Anakin figures but they did nothing for me so I took a pass on them.

Finally saw a shocktrooper today.  It looked cool so I picked it up.  I also got a wookie commando but no clone commanders.  I like the wookie but does he have to lie on the floor to fire his gun?

I guess Target has everything SW at 10% off sale this week, not too shabby.

Yipee! New stuff apparently hit my local Target, but all that was left this evening was the #61 Passel "Senator Dork" Argente--it's a sign, I tell you! ;) *points to avatar and subtitle*

Even better, due to their "Freakin' Sweet®" sale, I got him for only $4.31 (+ tax). I'll have to get back there after I get paid and clean house!

Post by: TheBlackDog65 on October 17, 2005, 01:49 PM
I hit 3 Targets locally and saw

1) the remmenants of the 501st wave that hit on Saturday.

2) plenty more of the Anakin and Obi Wan Lava and the Gree and Bly wave that Target is getting right now:

1x Yoda with spinning attack (EIII #26), 1x General Grievous with four lightsaber attack (EIII #9), 1x Mace Windu with force combat (EIII #10), 2x Darth Vader with lightsaber attack (EIII #11), 1x Clone Commander (EIII #33), 1x AT-RT Driver (EIII #54), 1x Obi-Wan Kenobi Red Leader Pilot (EIII #55), 1x Mustafar Sentry (EIII #56), 1x Commander Gree (EIII #59), 1x Commander Bly (EIII #57), and 1x Wookiee Commando (EIII #58).

This has hit several times nows.  This is the case for the last 5:

1x C-3PO (EIII #18), 1x Royal Guard (EIII #23), 1x Meena Tills - Mon Calamari Senator (EIII #47), 1x Utapaun Warrior (EIII #53), 1x Zett Jukassa -(Tado) (EIII #52), 1x Wookiee Heavy Gunner (EIII #68), 2x Tactical Ops Clone Trooper (EIII #65), 1x Plo Koon (Holograph) (EIII #66) , 1x Aayla Secura (Holograph) (EIII #67 , and 2x R4-P17 Astromech Droid (EIII #64).

What I do not have nor have I had any post is the case number for the last 5. Anyone have that?

Last Target has over 50 Nemodian Warriors (the first one) on their pegs and they told me that yes they had more figures in the back but they wouldn't bring em out until there was room on the pegs.

What I hate about Target is here in Utah they only put out 1 case at a time and you have to be at the right store to get em. When Walmart puts stuff out they put out enough to cover just about everyone who gets there for the first 24 to 36 hours. Anyway, I prefere shopping Target but not for Star Wars.

Post by: Brian on October 18, 2005, 09:11 AM
Saw the nice sale going on at Target yesterday too, but they didn't have anything new really.  I was tempted to get the TIE Fighter at the reduced price, but decided not to.  It was nice seeing figures at $4.31, but there wasn't anything new.  Really getting anxious for Gree and Bly, but not sure if they'll show around here unless this wave starts to ship heavier.  Just of note, there doesn't seem to be any Evolutions at either Target or Wal-Mart in town right now.

Speaking of Evolutions, my Sith set (ordered from WM.com) was delivered yesterday.  Nice to finish those up, aside from the Clone variant set.  Just on the lookout for a handful of the "Final 12" now, and then I'll be ready for "The Saga Collection".
Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: TheBlackDog65 on October 18, 2005, 02:48 PM
Picked up 3 Tact Ops Clones and 3 R4's, and 1 Wookie Gunner.  No holo's were there but with the 3 Clones, 3 R4's, 1 Wookie, 2 C3P0, 2 Blue Guard, and 2 Utopian guards I think they were just taken as were 1 of the Tact Ops and 1 of the R4's. That was okay with me caue I decided I wanted the Tacts Ops, R4, and Wookie anyway.
Gave one to DeanPaul, will keep 1 set for me, and give 1 set to my 11 year old to play with.
The circle is now complete with this line, kinda of! Still want/need the Shadow Trooper and the White Clone Evolutions I guess.

Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: TheBlackDog65 on October 20, 2005, 01:17 PM
Yes, that is what I meant. I don't have em but they are out there. Found 2 more 501st today (and 3 on Tuesday) and found 1 each of the holo's so I am now done. Oh what a feeling!

Except for the Shadow Trooper. I need to get that when it hits next week (hopefully).

Edit: To clarify. I found 2 today but a kid beat me to them as I was late by 5 min. or so getting to the Target. I thought, no problem, it was a kid. The kid bought up what he wanted and then turned to his Dad and asked for some extra cash to cover him. Dad then said "Well, I'll loan you the money until they clear eBay."

***Why can't Hasbro figure that clones will be MUCH more popular on average than other things and distribute accordingly?***  I have a theory that they could have short packed everything BUT clones and the clones would be hard to find... ::)

I didn't even plan on getting these but I'm a cloneaholic and I think I have clone magnets in my hands because I scambled through the Sith and Jedi packs to find the crown jewel (clone pack) in the very back and sort of hidden.   Fun!!!

It has become very frustrating here in Utah. After good success the first week I have not found the new stuff for anyone in our local collecting group. A local Wally that is number 1 in volume in the Intermountain West put out about 10 cases that had singles of Bly or Gree (not both) and tons of rehashes included of course Vader, Spin Attack Yoda, SA Clone, R2 with the assortments; basically a rehash of the first 15 or so. I guess this is good for the kids, but could they include some newer waves as well please!

I really think that the last 5 might become harder to find, but this is a great time for those who missed something to get caught up. I just hope the old stuff moves and doesn't become peg warmers.

Did pick up a Bly and Pilot Obi Wan for my son today though . . . . see,  I am doing what they want, buying somewhat older figures for my son!

Just so everyone knows, these are the cases that hit in mass (over 12 total) at just one of our Wally's.
http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HS85173H
http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HS85173G5

So coming soon to a Wally near you. Not more last 5 but plenty of older figures! Enjoy! Sure hope like I said that Mom and Dad are shopping early for Christmas!

Today I scored my last 2 501st clones, and hooked several local collectors up with the final 5. I was able to trade and get my Target Exclusive Clone so that was good.
Got the Republic Gunship at TRU today so overall not a bad day. I'm done now with the regular line, just want the
Clone Evolutions Variant x1 each
The Twins x1 each
Shadow Trooper x1

Usually when "hot" figures are available at Amazon.com they sell very quickly.  However, Meena Tills, Wookiee Commando, Passel Argente, Neimoidian Commander, Grievous Bodyguard, Commander Gree, Commander Bly, Cat MIIN, Royal Guard (Blue),Royal Guard (Red) have been at Amazon for several days now and they are all still in stock.  Strange...  Probably due to the $7.99 (plus shipping) price tag more than anything else.

Post by: darth punkinhed on November 3, 2005, 03:18 PM
I'll bet it's because most of us who have ordered through amazon before have received damaged figures and don't feel like shelling out that kind of cash just to get a damaged fig.  :P I know my last two orders both arrived smashed.

Post by: Pete_Fett on November 3, 2005, 11:38 PM
As did mine - when i was having trouble scoring the Tarkin wave, I thought I had hit pay-dirt when I was able to order all three of them from Amazon, then I got them in the mail and my hopes of scoring the MOC set I needed were quickly dashed...

Poor packaging, smashed bubbles, creased cardbacks - I promptly sent them back and got a refund.

Just picked up three of the four sets of the new ROTS Galactic Heroes (no Vader/Holo Emperor), a Utapau Shadow Trooper, Leia, Vader and Stormtrooper Cups all at a local Target this morning. I also hit Walmart on the way home and picked up another set of the DVD Clone Trooper figures and two more SA Clone Troopers.

I ordered the grey clone evolution set from BBTS. I was also able to get two utapau shadow troopers. I had a family member get one of the two for me with the dcpi#. I went back up to that same Target and the managers had put a lockdown on the remaining troopers until the 20th. I had to drive to a couple more stores to find my other one.
    Im glad the hunt for that figure came to an end.

Picked up a red guard, a meena tillis, a wookie heavy gunner, a commander gree, a  utapauan warrior, a R4P17 and 2 Target Shadow Troopers just about an hour ago. I know the wookie has the incorrect insert but I didn't thing the R4P17 did.

I forgot to ask something I noticed at WM this weekend.  WM had a bunch of Wookie Commandos, Bly, Gree, and Nemoidian Commanders from the "final 12" but no others.  I guess they didn't get the "final 5" but are the other figures from this wave not showing up in some cases?  I didn't see the Passel...what's his face, the White Bodyguard, and that other lame repaint.

I guess they didn't get the "final 5" but are the other figures from this wave not showing up in some cases? 

Yes, there are at least 3 different assortments I've seen:

Wave7 has:
1x #57, #58, #59, #60, #61, #62, #63 (plus a mix of old figures)

Wave7, Rev1 has only:
1x #57, #58, #59 (plus a mix of old figures)

So, in theory Gree and Bly should be shipping in greater numbers and the #60/#61/#62 figures shouldn't pegwarm since they are only 1-per-case in only the one case.



Wave7, Rev2 has only:
1x #57, #58, #63 (plus a mix of old figures)

Oh, and get this-I saw a GUNSHIP. A republic gunship, in the middle of the ARCs on top of the shelf. Hopefully, another collector won't notice it so I can come back with enough money. I'm glad I found a Tac Ops though.

Recap of last week:

Found 17 Shadow  Troopers (yep scored a case using DCPI at the Cust. Service Desk). I kept 4, 6 I bought and sold to local collectors and 5 went to collectors who were in the store with me. I also traded 2 to a local collector for 2 of Target's 1st exclusive and may trade 1 more of the Shadow Troopers for 1 more exclusive giving me 3 of each.

0 Tactical Ops. I have 8 now, but would like 3 more but think I'll quit.

2 of the Grey Clone Evolutions (trying to decide if I should buy 1 more of the Yellow. I have 1  but .  . . there clones!).

1 Plo Kloon fighter for my son

1 Sith Evolution for my son

1 Bly and Gree that I gave to a local collector who needed em (1 was from DeanPaul to the collector)

1 Shock Trooper that I hid like over a month ago and no one wanted so I bought it.

OTC Yoda on Dagoboh, Sly Moore, Luke Dagobah, Obi Wan Spirit; now just need Amidala celebration and Rabe and I will be caught up on my OTC.

Overall I am done with the line (except the twins) which is good because I hurt my back (L5 disc is degenerating) and I jammed it running in the grass field at the school I teach at. Result is I cannot walk literally; I have to crawl to get around the house, so no hunting for me.  Hopefully I'm better by Tuesday as I HATE not being mobile.
Good week overall.

Good question MetalJedi. I've looked at pictures and I don't think there is enough difference to justify another Gree without the helmet being fixed; Bly seems to be more movie accurate but I for one am not going to spend time hunting down a variant. If I find one in my travels, great, if not, that's great too.

As for me I picked up another Gray Clone Evo, Shadow Trooper and a R4 for a Xmas present.

They are actually markedly different from the 1st releases. The Gree is nothing to write home about, darker visor and a lot more reflective than the lime green visor, a very weak attempt to make the camo more like camo. The Bly on the other hand is much better! The orange/brown -ish stripe on the helmet and chest actually provides a awesome contrast to the yellow. The two-tone of the colors is much better than the uniform yellow of the original Bly. Plus I hear this corrected paint app. is much more movie accurate! Trust me, if you don't want to have 2 Blys, just get this corrected version, and return the original version.

Braved the stupid crowds this Black Friday morning.  WM at 0530 was ridiculous!!!  I almost didn't even pull into the parking lot, which was full to the gills.  Cop cars everywhere (6) w/ lights going, 2 ambulances, cats and dogs living together!  MASS HYSTERIA!! 

Found: Final 5 (1st time I've seen them) including a #68 R4, plus Red Guard, Tarkin, and........the baby figures (Separation of the Twins).

I barely made it out as there were a ton of folks w/ 20" flat screen TVs and other nonsense clogging up every isle.

TRU didn't have anything but the new HALO 2 figures (no Arbiter) and no new Star Wars stuff.   Didn't even try any other store...

*Update* I should add that the Separation of the Twins are put on the pegs just like a regular figure.  No separate section for them and yes they are $4.77 in Northern Virginia just like elsewhere.

We hit Target for the "Black Friday" sale on Friday morning, but they didn't have much in the way of new Star Wars stuff.  Same figures on the pegs that they have had, although they did have a few of the exclusive troopers.  We did get some Christmas shopping done, and pick up a few DVDs since they were going for some great prices.  Anyways, we stopped at Wal-mart on the way home (around 7:30 - surprisingly not as crazy busy as we thought), I had hoped to find the twin sets, but they didn't have them.  They did have a little bit of the final 5 figures though, so I was able to pick up 1 Tactical Ops Trooper and 1 R4.  They had another R4, and two Holo Aaylas there.  No Wookiee Gunners or Holo Plo Koon.  Nice to find something new though.

Buzy evening. Put 6 Tactical Ops on layaway for fellow collectors. Put 6 sets of twins on layaway for fellow collectors. Bought 1 set of twins and had a fellow collector get me a set so I'm good to go on them.
Saw Collection 2 Wave 7 cases. Nice to see the Jedi back like Aayla, Plo, and Kit. Plenty of the Gree Coll. 1 wave in at one Wally (they had 30 cases).  So now I am done!

Huge score for me tonight. It felt good to finally find something after a few weeks. My 24-hr Wally got about  8 cases of the Twins exlcusive sets. They were the display cases, they consisted of 3 Bails/Leia, 3 Lukes/Obi-Wans, 1 Tarkin, 1 3PO, 1 Ki-Adi Mundi, 1 Red Guard, 1 Dooku, and 1 R4P17.

I grabbed 5 Red Guards ;D , 2 Tarkins, 1 Bail, 1 Obi-Wan, and 1 R4-P17.

I am almost Current now, I still have yet to see anything from #65 up though.

I currently need:
1 or 2 #65 501st Clone
1 #66 Plo Koon
1 #67 Aayla Secura
A couple #68 Wookiee
1 new Target clone, the Shadow trooper

Picked the Twins today.

Also went by my local Target:

CLEARANCE!  The Lava Anakin & Obi-Wan figs now occupy the basic figure pegs.  Only two columns remain for basic figs, which are pretty bare right now.  The Lava figures are 50% off, or $6.50.  Plenty of each fig.  Also, the Attack on Coruscant Battle Pack are 50%, or $9.99.

I finally see the Tarkin wave all the time.  I still have not gotten Tarkin himself but I am weak for aliens and droids so I got them plus 3PO.  He looks so shinny that I could not pass on it.  Saw red sabered Dooku.  I also got 2 wookies gunners.  Plus I got my two preview wookies from amazon, my VOTC fett for 5.29 and my free holo emperor. 

I still have not seen tactical troops or holo plo koon but Secura is warming the pegs, as is R4 and the wookie gunner.

Was at Target last night and they had only six figs on the shelf.  3 Ops Troopers, 2 Utatua Troopers and a 3PO ???  I was totally shocked that these were still hanging around.  I picked up one of each.  The guy next to me must of bought a dozen pegwarmers minutes earlier for X-Mas Presents.  He actually put back the Ops Troopers going for the main characers.  My Walmart  and TRU were both totally bare as well, except for two figs each.  Looks like SW will be hot seller this Holiday.  Im also hearing that the new Saga figs have made it to some stores and should be out by the weekend, at least thats what one employee told me.  Anyone have the DCPI or UPC's for any of these so we can check?

They are really cool aren't they!  I picked up the cody 3-pack 1st but went back after work and picked up the Anakin 3-pack (which is SUPER cool).  Good price for each figure even though they are kit bashes. 

Can you imagine how hard these would be to get if they were packed as single figures?  Actually, it might not be much different as the 3-packs were all gone in a day at my WM...

I haven't been able to pick anything up for awhile due to low funds but I did finally pick up a Tarkin last night. Odd, it was the only figure on the pegs other than vader. I'm missing lots of ROTS figures, I didn't focus on the common ones at the time thinking I'd pick them up later then I ran out of cash. Oh well, at least I got most of the hard ones to track down plus trade fodder when I get around to trying to complete the run.

Our local Wal-Mart restocked the pegs a little bit this past weekend, and I was able to pick up the Wookiee Heavy Gunner, which was the last figure from the ROTS line that I was missing.  Strange, it was the only "Final 12" figure they had there.  Also picked up a couple of Darth Vaders for our nephews, and they had the pegs stocked with some more SA clones, AT-RT Drivers, Tarkins, and a few other figures.  Glad to see something besides Neimodians, Mas, and Polis Massan on the pegs for those parents trying to find stuff for the kiddos.  I've seen quite a few parents looking through the aisles for anything Star Wars for their kids, preferrably Darth Vader, Obi-Wan, Anakin, Yoda, or something more recognizable...so hopefully there will be some more restocking for those people.

I found Jedi Star Fighters (Red and Yellow), Tri-Fighters, and Grievous Wheel Bikes for $13, and $5 deluxe (Yoda w/fly, Vader w/Table, Grievous, Spider Droid, Crab Droid).  No Stass Allie, the one figure I'd really hoped to find, but I did get 2 Spider Droids nonetheless.

Got the JSF's too.  I'd put those off, wasn't sure if they were to-scale or not, but upon measuring they are spot-on which is nice, and I'm glad I didn't pass on them. 

May get a wheel bike and 2 more Tri Fighters if they go cheaper.

Oh and they had the early bird kit for $18.  Man that whole thing sucked.  Love the Chewbacca, but that's it really.

I just need Zett, Ask Aak, Meena Tills, the holo Jedi, Bail w/ infant Leia, and a couple of the repainted Wookiees then I'll be as done with ROTS as I want to be.

mysterious resurfacing of Obi and Bail w/baby so I got a mint set for my wall...
I got a Tarkin on clearance too.

I also got 3 Spider Droids on the cheap too.  $3 each for a figure that was pretty sought after for a while in '05.

Finally I came across some pretty good deals. I found a Zett at a Target and when I used their scanner to check the price he came up $0.00. When I went to pay for it he rang up the same and after the cashier contacted someone I wound up getting him for $1.24 with tax which was fine by me. Also I came across Anakin and Obi wan's starfighters at a walmart for $13.00 each.

TRU had almost 30 additional mega packs last night.  More than half of them had 501st clones.  I only bought the one that had a 501st and a wookie. 

Also got some hoth "troopers" while on sale.

I was just able to pick up Saga '06 Wave 3 (minus Scorch and Utapau Clone, of course) at Target, and then found the last Wave 2 figures I needed (Gonk, R2) at TRU for $4.99. Also scored a few of the mega packs with the 501st troops alongside Ask Aak, Gov'nr Tarkin, Meena Tills, Wookies and a few others for $8.97 each. Not bad. Now if I could just find another Vader (#13) I'd be pretty much set.

I picked up an Ask Aak, Tarkin, Aayla Secura, Shaak Ti, kit fisto and a ploo koon in the TRU two packs. Did anyone else get the twisted broken ankle version of Aayla? In a way I'm kidding but it just seems to me that her leg is kind of twisted a little bit making it look like ankles broken or something. Not all that great of a figure now that I have it out of the pack.

Found 4 of the Jedi Temple Assult at a local Kmart today (two other collectors split the 4 at another store).  Picked em up since next to a custom, I like these far better than the Tactical Ops Clone.  Pricey at $29.99 minus 10% plus tax. 

If you want/need here is the item number for them:

65356908971

Make SURE you specify that you want the Jedi Temple Assult as the one with the Emperor was in the case (well, the case had 4 Temple Assults and 2 of the Battle Packs with the Emperor and the Royal Guard).

Edit: Guess I got buyer's remorse and returned to Kmart 3 of the JTA's. Too much money and I already have 2 so that give me 3 or 9 clones and that is a good enough with 4 customs and 6 Tactical Ops. The legion looks decent behind the Evolution Anakin. Now to work on the background diaramha of when they are coming to the top of Temple Stairs.

Nor I.  I'll have to watch KM some since they're abundant here.

The $30 tag isn't TOO bad in the grand scheme of things.  If you took the 5 figures at a $5 value, that's $25 right there technically...  Given currently retail, the Clones come out to "fair", though not great prices...  The Anakin is just "extra" then.

If it were 5 Clones the set would be fantastically priced.  As it was I bought one for me and one for a Canucklehead and I passed on more due to price but sort of regret not getting a 2nd since a GOOD 501st Trooper never surfaced IMO.  The Tactical Ops wasn't common, or really any good, so it doesn't count to me.
Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases

$30 was too rich for my blood (never saw it or the Tac Ops Trooper anyways), so I made my own out of a #41 clone.

I was at Wal Mart checking for VTSCs or maybe a freakishly early restock of normal TSC figures, and instead I discovered, laying around the Star Wars stuff, a SA Clone Trooper! I know he wasn't there, so either the employees found him in some weird part of the store, or someone had it MOC a few months and then returned it.

His card had a small torn place and I think one of the pieces of tape might've been missing from the back, but who cares, because I'm an opener and this figure's great! He's probably the best army-builder I have now, outdoing my evolutions sets. I'm pretty pleased with him :)

He was $5.88 though. Our Wal Mart had a $3 clearance sale back in December on all ROTS figures, but all they had were what I considered bunk stuff (Grievous Bodyguards, a Nemoidian Senator dude, and some other things I forget). Surely figures someone wanted, but nothing I wanted... and this clone sure wasn't in any of that.

I'm pretty happy with him though :)
Title: Re: ROTS Recent Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on May 2, 2006, 04:23 AM
JTA set tonight for the low low price of $28 and change...  I feel dumb for not being able to do the math quickly but I figured it came to $7-ish a figure (not counting the Anakin figure in there at all) and I was willing to bite on it at that...  Pricey but 3 Tact. Ops Clones and Pilot are worth it to me, plus considering the current figures out on pegs these things look like VOTC in terms of quality.  ::)

ROTS Tarkin (via trade)- this guy is awesome! At first I didn't like how the arms were a little difficult to position, but I realized it was all worth it when he could not only put his hands behind his back and point and such, but also work some work, he can cross his arms! This is awesome, and all imperial officers should be able to do it methinks.

Great figure :) I wish I had more to customize with really... especially those arms, I can imagine the Thrawn custom now...

It was 12 dollars, a shock trooper variation on not the #6 quick draw clone, but the #41 SA clone. I checked it out very carefully to see if it was a custom figure, but there are not even the slightest signs of glue on the bubble , it is well sealed, and the tape on the back is that from hasbro. very strange. has anyone else seen anything like this?

The sets are still fantastic army builder sets for $20...  3 great army builders, you can't really beat that.
