    I went to Super Target in Greenwood yesterday and found nothing new to report except a very cool LOTR figure that I should have bought. DANG IT!! King of the Dead...VERY SWEET!!!
    Wal-Mart had just put out several boxes, but nothing new either. Just the Holographic Luke Assortment. There you go!

    where did you go to in Greenwood? I assume Toys R Us!
    I did not make it up that far. I will always be on the lookout for Leia Unleashed for you and Casey...I have never seen one except online.

    K-mart on the west side had the HOF assortment today as did Target here in town...they put out it looks a couple of HOF assortment boxes. Nothing great, but if you were looking for any of those...there you go.
    The only figure that I did not see was Darth Vader.
    I picked up an extra Darth Maul if anyone is interested. LET ME KNOW!!

    Well, I made the journey down to Tennessee this weekend and got a chance to go into a super Wal-Mart.
    They had the same exact assortments that we have. Nothing great, did see a Vader...should have picked it up. There were several Unleashed figures...Obi-Wan and Luke X-Wing. But, they had SW Legos on clearance, so I picked up a TIE Fighter and Jabba's Prize with Gamm Guard and Boba Fett. There were many on clearance, but those two caught my eye and were more than 1/2 off.

    I was in Target this morning here in town...they had Anakin's lightsaber, but no new figures to speak of.
    I did find a Batmobile hotwheel...picked it up just to have it.

    Well, a trip to Target and the mall didn't reveal too much yesterday. Target had the same HOF assortment that they had for several weeks. There was one Darth Maul with a plastic cup left there. Anyone ever go into Kaybee anymore? They have some old SAGA stuff and not much else...but, they are only $2.99 with a buy one get one half price sale going on. So, if you need a figure or two from 2002-2003, check them out and see if you can get two for $4.50. They also have the four packs for $9.99 with the buy one get one half off price. I asked the manager why they do not have any new STAR WARS stuff and he said that it is not his choice, he puts out what the company sends him. They have new toys from other movies...but no new STAR WARS???

    I hit Toys R Us today on the East side of Indy. No cool figures to report...they had many 4 packs of Jedi and Carkoon. They had Han Solo and Obi Wan Unleashed...not bad. But, the had about 5 Darth Vader TIE Fighter from OTC and about 7 Red Leader X-Wing fighters...Very cool!!! I pick up a three pack of the droid army because I dig on the Battle Driods.

    Harry Potter Series Two of the little figures were there. I got one of each of those and the NIGHT BUS Carrying Case...all for my wifey. She will be happy when she sees those.

    LOTR: They had all kinds of new LOTR figures including several brand new three packs that are not in the brand new price guides. Not sure if they are exclusives or not?? VERY COOL stuff if you collect them.

    Van Helsing: TONS OF STUFF...lots of stuff that I have never seen. I don't think that these figures went over well with people, but they are cool.

    There you go: Good Luck to Eric tomorrow in Louisville.

    Well my trip was fairly successful,for other people.LOL
    I found a Unleashed Chewie ( for Casey ), Han Solo & Luke x-wing OTF ( for John ). I did find a Anikin Glass w/figure at the Target in Clarksville. An at a KB outlet store along 65 South . SW Life board game for $9.99. One thing that was very curious was I most have seen 10 or more RED clone trooper Unleashed between 2 TRU. I thought the RED one was the variant. Must be the white one.
    Well all in all it was a fun day spent with my family just hitting all the store's along the HW.

    Eric,

    thanks again for the information...my wife picked up the Boba Fett and Luke 12 inch figures at K-Mart. I want the Stormtrooper though. I guess that I will have to wait on that one. I hope to see more VOTC figures sometime soon at a store near me.

    I was down in Bedford this morning and stopped at K Mart to see what they had. Well, they had several of each of the Galactic Heroes sets at $5.49 apiece and one VOTC 12in Boba Fett. They literally had three 3 3/4 figures and none of them were worth having. That was IT! Sheesh, I would think that they would have more...but nothing else. Oh Well. I should have stopped at Wal-Mart also, but it looked packed when I drove by. It is the central hub of Bedford.

    Eastside K Mart has 3 12 in Luke OTC and nothing else
    Target has 6 different Saga figures and a Leia with the cup figure.
    Kay-bee--nothing new
    Sam Goody had one case of VOTC for a high price of $12.99 apiece. DAMN! But, since I do not see them anywhere else, I picked up a HAN, Obi-Wan and Leia.
    Left 2 Obi-wans and Hans and 1 Leia

    Those prices seem reasonable for Vintage Phoenix. Let's see...we pay $10 and charge $25 because we buy up everything we see so no one else gets a shot at it.

    Went into Wal Mart this morning and they had nothing new except the OTC lightsabers. It looks like they put out a case or two of Saga figures recently though.
    Nothing that you cannot find everywhere. They did have some LOTR figures that I have not seen ANYWHERE on the new cards including Strider, Eowyn and Gandolf the Gray. So, if you collect those...go check it out before they are gone.
