    Heylo Mojo

    I created this little thready for myself and for everyone to check in on. Since I work at a local retailer that sells some SW gear, I get some sneak peeks at upcoming release stuff. I'll be making little notes on what I've seen so far only as much as I'm allowed to say but...you get the picture.

    SO FAR
    I can only report limited sightings of the latest Clone War Series 3.75 figs. A talking Yoda that is kinda creepy AND a reissue of the Republic Gunship with some extra detailing and a new paint job that makes it SO much better looking than the previous ones. April 1st cant come soon enough.

    We've seen on the Rebelscum boards that some of these have snuck onto the sale floor early. Hopefully there are enough so that we can all get full sets on the 1st!

    Yeah...I tried "slipping" up to the front register with one of the gunships on Friday Night and had a small army chasing after me to take it back.

    Hey, if anyone sees the titanium series of die-cast micros please let me know. I am obsessed with getting these. :) Does anyone know if they are exclusive to one store or another? I'm hoping they'll be at TRU 4/1.

    Hey Mistamandalore,
    The Titanium series is exclusive to Wal*Mart--But, they are supposed to be released on 4-2-05. So keep your eye open for them.

    Has anyone seen any of the new Unleashed figures (IG-88, Stormtrooper) in the Rochester-area. I saw them at one of the Target's a few weeks back, but never picked them up.

    No I haven't seen those yet, but then again I haven't been out toy shopping in almost a month...
    That'll all change tonight though! :D

    Oh! And - Welcome to the boards WicketSKA!

    Roundup of the SouthEast in General
    Please note this information is as of 10am this morning (Saturday). Everywhere I went I could only find figures 1-32 so thats what I mean by "Upper Number"

    Penfield Target
    - Running Mob Scene this morning at 8am. All 8 of us HAHA. All 12inches were grabbed and most of the harder to find figures like Red Guards, Upper Number Jedi (only up to 32), and Clone Troopers were flying off the shelves. The Rebelscum guys and I picked off whatever we missed out on last night.

    Victor Target
    - The motherload. All 32 figures of the original line. All vehicles (except gunships). Cleaned out the few glassware they had for Nikki and D. Still had a good proportion of 12in and the guys working the department said it had been calm all morning.

    Victor K-Mart
    - As far as regular action figures, DONT GO THERE. Someone went through their toy section this morning and pretty much wiped them out. They still have a rather large abundance of 12 inch figures at the front door including Palpatine. No Vehicles, some Legos. As a treat, they even have some clearance Power of the Force figures and scene sets from Mos Eisley in their toy section. And if you're a fan of Marvel Select, they have the latest line.

    Henrietta WalMart
    - Had a MM for an hour last night. Got cleared out of their 12inch and most of the popular hard to find upper number line. Basic figures left, some legos, very few vehicles.

    Gates Super WalMart
    - If you want to build a Mon Mothma army...GET THERE FAST. Thats about all they had left last night around 1am and I dont know if they restocked or not.

    Henrietta Media Play
    - Home Sweet Home. Currently selling the Hardcover, Graphic Novel Comic, and Scholastic versions of the book. Also selling the Visual Dictionaries and the Cross-Section books. They have one Republic Gunship left. No action figures except for the Clone Wars Anime Season 2 figs. Some Clone Trooper 12inch left along with various shirts and junior reader book.

    -Big Breath-
    I need sleep.

    I was at TRU in Henrietta today and saw all kinds of new action figures for some new SW movie coming out next month. Also there was a bunch of crazy fans in costumes walking around getting there picture taken with kids and stuff. What a bunch of weirdos.

    Howdy Folks...my spies tell me that a few stores in the area will be recieving trucks within the next three days at specific locations around Rochester. PM me or call me tomorrow sometime and I'll let ya know. I already know what most of you are hunting for as far as what you dont have and I know to look for certain things for the rest of you. If you have any special orders you can think of, let me know and we'll try to work something out.

    Has anyone seen the Walmart titanium series anywhere? I went to four different Walmarts and they said that they had yet to receive them. If anyone finds that they are out let me know, please?

    I picked up an extra BLUE guard today. I know that in all the boards I've been reading lately, he's been a hard-to-find commodity. Picked up a Quad of Clone Troopers at Henrietta TRU but that was it.

    Anyone have any luck finding anything above 32?

    I've only been to one place since the MM and they didn't have anything over #32 yet.

    Here's the [link=http://www.rebelscum.com/ch-ROTS.asp]explanation[/link] for the Collection 1 versus Collection 2 question that DarSolo was asking about back on May 15th. Collection 1 is main characters and Collection 2 is secondary characters.

    And I love that you love hunting because I never get the chance to get out at the right time to snag these things for myself.
