    I have been going to the Wilma Rudolph WalMart (Clarksville) every night for weeks waiting for them to stock their empty shelves and tonight it finally paid off... sort of.

    I found about 20 cases.
    2 cases of Massiff/QG/ES/OFT
    2 cases of Endor Raid Han
    16 cases of Bespin Wave

    Luke is the 3rd version (peg w/ no magnet).
    Endor Han is just the Bespin wave with one Han in it. ONE HAN!!!

    They also had:
    Anakin/Nexu deluxe figs
    Anakin/Zam speeders
    Electonic lightsabers (including OB1)

    These may not be uncommon but I havnt seen any of them in Clarksville for Weeks. When I said empty, I ment EMPTY!

    As always...if anyone needs help getting some of this stuff just contact me and we can work it out.

    CS TRU had Bespin wave this morning at 11:00 AM. They had a couple Luke's but they were the non-bloody variety.

    Checked out FtCampbell Blvd WalMart tonight.
    Looks like all Clarksville WalMarts got identical big shippments.

    More Bespin wave. A few with Han.
    And one case of Maffiss wave.

    For the second night in a row I have seen 10 collection 1 cases for every one col 2 case. Is this the right ratio?

    And another thing.... Does anyone know what the ration # means? Ya know, on the cases it says something like "Collectin 1 Wave 4 Ratio 3"
    Oviously it has to do with which figs are in the case, but is it something like ratio 3 means a 4-3-3-2 breakdown and ratio 5 means a 3-3-3-2-1 breakdown.

    Anyone?

    Maybe Toymaster knows what all that means, I'm not sure. Did any of these cases that had Han also contain Pilot OB1 or Bespin Chewie? These are the only 3 I need so I'm not gonna bother looking until I could possible get them all at once.
    BTW I had previously posted how dissappointed I was with ordering from KEBco toys online; it now seems that they are trying harder to make good on my long-standing order. I still wouldn't recommend them to anyone but at least at this point it looks like I will actually get my order filled. I really don't blame them for Hasbro's slow shipping, it's just that they don't communicate well or even nicely when it comes to inquiries on your order.

    I found no OB1s or Chewies.
    I couldnt believe it. Not olny was there only 1 Han but no other new figs.
    The Col 1 Wv 4 Ratio 3 has 4 Mace, 3 Jango, 3 Vader, 2 Luke
    Col 1 Wv 4 Ratio 5 had 1 Han, 1 Clone, 3 Vader, 3 Luke, 2 Mace, 2 Jango
    (I am pretty sure these were the #s)
    And I cant remember the exact breakdown on the Col 2 cases. I found Col 2 Wv 4 Ratio 1&2 but Wv 4 is the Massiff/QG/ES/OFT wave.
    And in addition to those between the 2 cases are some Genosians, Jexters, Luminaris, Royal Guards, and Taun Wes.

    GMS, i was at wilma-rudolf wal-mart last night at around 3:00, i saw about 5 boxes. 4 said ration #3, 1 said ration #5. naturally, i started cutting them open ;) i saw in one box there was only 1 luke with i think interchangeable hands, i could not get a good look at the other box, when i got it halfway open, a WAL-MART REPRESENTATIVE showed up and escorted me out of the store. he said we are not allowed to look at new toys until they are on the shelves. i went to ft. campbell blvd wal-mart to get what i needed, but i couldn't find any of the boxes. i'm not sure about the wave numbers, but i hope this helped. :)

    i saw a rep. from hasbro at the cool springs target taking inventory and asked him if he knew anything he said they are keeping the release dates pretty quite but he has heard that figure collections 3-5 i believe should be starting to hit each month that is all he knew. Also the exclusive clone troopers at KB are starting to come in i think they are gone at cool springs but there still may be some at the other stores-------also does anyone know how to get a hold of a toyfare exclusive darth vader? Thanks dawgs.

    WalMart employees have told me that I cant open cases, but I have never been thrown out of the store before. As a matter of fact when I was in Wil Rudf Wal the other day the guy stocking hekped me buy digging out some of the cases on the bottom of the pile. Well, I guess it just depends on who is in there when ya go.

    Ya said there was only one Luke is that case. Was it open when you got there? Cause I have cut the tape on several cases of Col 1 Wv 4 Ratio 3&5 and they both have mutiple Lukes. Ratio 5 has one Luke packed at one end of the case and 2 more at the other end of the case. But if it was open they might have mixed and matched figs cause I opened most the cases there. Some I put on the pegs so I could take the boxes but there were some left open on the slate. And there were not enough pegs for all those figs so I know there is plenty of cases in the back (nothing new though).

    Anyway...
    I have now checked all the Clarksville WalMarts and the one in Hopkinsville and they seem to have all gotten the exact same shipments.
    Tons of Bespin Wave.
    Some deluxe.
    Electronic Lightsabers.
    Speeders.

    I dont expect to see anything new in Clarksville for a while.

    Are there any Basic Lightsabers around Nashville? We have been wiped out around here forever.

    Does the Cool SPrings Wal-Mart have any of the Bespin wave figures left? I hate to ride up there for nothing.

    CS Wal Mart has a big, steaming hot cup of NOTHING!!! Pegs are extremely bare-and the pallets they had out this morning had absolutely no sign of anything Star Wars. Hopefully with any luck it will be any day now that they get new merchandise. I only went by there because I hear the Acklay is showing up now.Found squat. All 4/23 stuff. Don't bother.

    Go over to Rebelscum.com for pictures of the upcoming Wal-Mart exclusive cantina figures/playsets. The first word that came to mind when I saw these? Useless. They are simply reissues of Greedo, Hammerhead and Ponda Baba that have been slightly re-tooled (if at all) and repainted, and they each come with a section of the bar. They also each have a peice of a backdrop on the card back that you cut out and stick behind the bar. I'm sorry, but this just looks totally lame to me. We already have decent versions of all three of these characters that seemed to warm the pegs for an eternity, as well as 2 cardboard cantinas from a few years ago. And now once again we get to make the cantina out of cardboard. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I will pick these stinkin' things up because I'm a completist, but I just really wish Hasbro would give us something a little cooler. I know we can all think of at least a few new cantina patrons that we'd like to see made as figures, but instead we get 3 that we've already got. I think it kinda sucks.

    Whada ya'll think?

    I TOTALLY agree, Michael. What ...is....the....deal? There are 5 films to make toys from and they just waste our time with new versions of stuff that should be done ONCE. I for one am going to send them the message that I don't want these re-treads.......by NOT buying them. If we keep buying them, they will keep making them. $$$ is the bottom line they look at.

    Well, like I said, I'm a completist, so I will reluctantly buy them, but I remember ALL THREE of these figures sitting around FOREVER when they were originally released. My brother picked up a couple of extra Hammerheads for like 25 cents each one time. They had Ponda Babas at Big Lots. And I think the K-Mart on Charlotte Pike FINALLY sold all of their CommTech Greedos before they locked the doors forever. I guess Wal-Mart will get to sit on these guys all over again.

    The Wal-Mart on Charlotte Pike had a few of the new Endor Raid Han Solo today. I thought this one was supposed to be the short pack, but it was actually the only new one they had--I looked through every figure there are there were no Chewbaccas or Obi-Wans. All of them had the white button on the waist (as opposed to grey). They also had the Final Battle Jango with the flame pointing upward, as well as a boatload of Bespin Lukes, all the non-bloody, magnet-in-the-hand versions.

    KB at Cool Springs had both the yellow and red Clone Troopers (good boxes this time, jedichic! ;)). One each at $21.99 each.

    I finally got my newly re-tooled Protecto Paks via UPS today (after first mistakenly being sent a case of Hot Wheels cars--UGH!). I'll have to say I am quite disappointed in them. They are deeper, yes, but not deep enough. I was only able to fit about half of my Saga figures into the new cases.

    See ya'll Sunday...

    Han has been short packed in the cases that have been showing up around here. One per case but the rest is just the bespin wave. Go figure.
    Do you think Hasbro enjoys TOYING with us collectors.

    Stopped by the same Wal-Mart this morning on the way to work...they had a gutted case sitting out in the floor. It was Collection 1, Wave 4, Ratio 5 (if I remember correctly). It contained 3 Lukes, 3 Vaders, 1 Clone Trooper, 2 Maces, 2 Jangos, and ONE HAN! He is indeed one per case, but at least he's shipping! Guess we'll just have to wait a little longer for Chewbacca and Obi-Wan.

    Later...

    Well CS WM had dozens upon dozens of Han, Chewie, OB1 pilot and the rest of the Bespin wave this morning. I mean TONS. All the Lukes were peg hand version.
    CS Target had also restocked with some Bespin stuff, and had 1 Palpatine as well.
    No Acklay anywhere. Bummer.

    Help. I may just be incredibly stupid, but I can't figure out how to make the Han figure's action feature work. The one I have says on the back of the package to "press the button" and mine doesn't do anything.
    Does anyone know how it's supposed to work?
    Also, has anyone else found that the radar dish that comes with OB1 Pilot doesn't fit in the hole on the Jedi Starfighter? Obviously I have ways of MAKING it fit but I'd rather not have to alter anything. The dish won't even attach to the stand it comes with! Whatever.

    I got the LAST Chewie. And it was the only one I found. It was pretty messed up. Only good to open. It is a pretty cool figure.

    Didnt open an OB1 so I cant say about the dish. I only open a few figs and so far my favorate is the Nexu. Right now I got him chomppin on 3po's head!!

    I completed the Cool Springs sweep:

    TRU-nothing
    Target-nothing
    KB - they had the Unleashed Jango & Maul
    Walmart - plenty of Obi-wan, Han, a couple Yodas (I was just a couple seconds short of getting a Chewie, the lady front of me got the last three - she was buying for her kids and nephews...great lady)

    Has anyone seen Palpatine?

    Madison WalMart in Clarksville just stocked 12 cases of
    Collection 1 Wave 4 Ratio 1:
    2 Jango
    2 Mace
    2 Vader
    2 Luke
    2 OB1
    1 Han
    1 Chewie

    The pegs were full so the cases were placed on the over head shelf still in the case but with one flap of the box cut of. They used a box cutter so the figs where the box was cut got f*ed up. Depending on which side of the box got cut, the messed up figs were either the 2 vaders or Han and Chewie.

    Tragic.
    But I did get what I needed and there were plenty more to be had. Openers and collectors.
