    the problem is, i live in Shelbyville, which is 60 miles from Nashville, I can't hop in the car everytime somebody says they find something. I do work in nashville and try to check out the places people post about, but it never fails that by the time I get off work the next day and drive over to these places, there's nothing there.

    That's why I said people shouldn't post where they find things. I'm beginning to suspect there's a scalper among us. Certain things people have posted finding are usually gone within 12 hours, and showing up on ebay.

    I just got a PM about somebody finding something I was looking for, but it's not going to be posted on the board! If I get over there tomarrow and it's still there, then I guess that just adds to my idea that a NAD member is scalping everything.

    Come one Loki, you cant really think that the 6 people who post on this thread are the only 6 people in all of middle TN who buy SW toys.

    Remember those 'gift packs' I reported earlier. Well I just read a post on Rebelscum.com That says the Titanium Series packs have been found in VA Beach VA.
    Just think I could have been the one to take the glory of reporting the find. Oh well. But the Toymaster was right about what was in the box.

    I can buy as many as they have, but it seems every time I do that for someone, they never send me the money and I end up with stuff I don't need. If you want, I'll get them and ship them to you. Just charge you for the actual price, plus postage and maybe a couple of bucks for my gas. Just lemme know.

    If it's one of those hard to find items or a few figure, you could always hide them in a secret location such as (behind the Lord of the Rings box set or behind the RC boat) Then post the location. If someone else nabbs it before we can get to it we will be one step closer to finding the secret Sith Scalper.

    Today I found:

    6 SA clonetroopers
    Han solo Stormtrooper force battler
    Sith VS. Jedi Battlepack
    Titanium Series giftpack
    Tarkin
    Bacara
    Repainted #6 clone (501st)
    Ventress Unleashed
    Anakin evolutions

    I left 2 SA clones, 1 solo FB, 4 Jedi VS. Sith, 3 Titanium giftpacks, 3 anakin evo's, and I got the only Tarkin and bacara that I found.

    7 stores, two hours, but I'm pleased with my little finds.

    PM me for locations! (Warning, these are at many locations from nashville to murfreesboro.)

    Oh, and I don't have to discover the identity of our scalper, a quick trip to ebay tells me everything.
    When somebody posts they found 4 500 Vaders on tuesday night, and by Wednesday morn they're all gone and they start popping up on ebay on thursday, it's easy to do the math.

    i would be careful before you start pointing fingers....it could be if there is a scalper they lurk here and read the same posts you do. i would not assume that any of the NAD people that sell on ebay are scalpers. The vader in question is $14.99 at target and is just about the same on ebay.I don't think anyone would be making a profit on them just yet.
    If you are angry because someone won't do the legwork for you and hold stuff or hide it, i'm sorry. But please don't accuse NAD members!

    I'd rather HBO you guys (Help a Brother out) on these toys..they are nice to find and share with fellow members that are Star Wars fans and enjoy them for our collections....Sure some folks are going to sell some stuff on Ebay...what ever... FUBAR.

    Do a search on some E-bay seller called bubbafett80 No wonder I can't find a Clone trooper figure in this area....he has them all...

    Tambo I did not mean that it's not cool when someone has time or extra cash to help people out...I know I would love to buy all the ones I come accross and sell them to you guys but I simply cannot afford to buy them for Kylie much less my grown up "kids" :)
    I was just stating that it's not cool to point fingers when frustrated :(

    I don't ask anyone to do my legwork for me, I go to just about every place people post myself, and I never see anything. Somebody is buying all this stuff as soon as it's posted. And it's not ONLY members here that are snapping it up. If you think there aren't people watching this and other collector boards daily, then you're delusional.

    I can go to Outer Limits in Murfreesboro right now and get all the 500th Vaders i want, for about $25. And that place is full of everything everyone's looking for.

    I'm not too worried about a couple of members getting everything, it's the 100 people who aren't members, who never post, but come here all the time to see what we find, then they clean it out.

    I forgot how rabid this toy collecting can get. I've been through it all with most of the Spawn stuff. Now I have boxes full of action figures. It was more fun to buy them than to own them. Anything I buy now, I usually open.
    I hid a couple of 500th's behind a box above the SW's stuff at the K-Mart on Donnelson Pike a couple of days ago if anybody wants them. How lame-o is that? :)

    not lame........but maybe you should have asked for a pm on the hiding place so someone that wants them can look...i do believe that people lurk here and take the best picks, so if you have made the effort to hide or have made a great find, request a pm from the toy collectors!

    Score again!

    Found Obi-Wan Red Leader pilot
    Zett
    Antilles
    Shock Trooper

    All at one Wal Mart today, and no, I didn't buy every one, there's still a couple of each left. Amazing what I'm starting to find out there now that we've stopped posting WHERE stuff is!

    Hmmmmmm....

    I picked up Faith Hill's new album at Kmart this morning and figured I'd check on the SW figures. Picked up 2 Commander Bacara, 2 Anakin Mustafar, 1 R2-D2 with Sound effects, 1 Clone Commander, 2 500th Vaders, and a Cantina Scene 1 that was on clearance. Other than maybe one of the Bacara's these are HBO figures. So I now have #45-53 to pass along to a collector in need. They also had Vader and C-3PO Super deformed and a bunch of old clone #6's.

    This is kindof late, but I had a good find at the Hickory Hollow Mall Suncoast on Saturday. I picked up 2 of the 12" Ultimate Villain, one 12" Clone Trooper, the BARC Speeder with trooper, ROTS miniatures Starter set, and the Attacktix starter for a whopping total of $70. I started out getting just one 12" Villain and Clone Trooper because they were marked as 25% off clearance. However, they were 50% off the clearance price, so I got more stuff.

    I left a couple of figures, some Lego set, and several Attacktix boosters.

    Picked up several of the repainted #6 clones this weekend. Also found one #33 repainted and the Obi-Wan pilot. Saw at least 10 each of 48-50, a handful of 51-53, but none of 45-47, 54, or 56. So I have 46-53, 55, and 6 (red) plus an Unleashed wave and Stormtrooper that are looking for a new home. Contact me if you want to check out store inventories or want to help clear out my HBO inventory.

    I thought I would give y'all a heads up on a new figure. [image=http://www.starwars.com/collecting/shop/shopnews/img/20050829_2_bg.jpg]
    There is a NEW Clonetrooper version, the "Covert ops Trooper" w/ collectors case only available at STARWARSSHOP.COM. Evidently, the new backer card supports the Episode III Cover art too.

    i think it's funny tho on the #50 anakin has his gold arm, then the other one is also chopped off....but both his legs are intact. lol oh well.

    Found the Jedi vs. Separatist Battlepack and the Rebel vs. Empire Battlepack as well as a couple of the #56 Mustafar Sentry figures yesterday. Anybody need these?

    I am still missing an AT-RT Driver. I wouldn't mind an AT-TE Gunner. I think I had one, but passed it along to DVDMaster.

    I still have an extra of Captain Antilles, Zett Jukassa, and Utapauan Warrior. I also have an Obi-Wan pilot and repainted #6 Clone that I have been holding for someone else.
