    Nothing new in Greenwood.
    Super Target: NOTHING
    Meijer: NOTHING
    Toys R Us: OTC Falcon, X-Wing, TIE and DV TIE but no new figures.

    Total waste of time.

    Target is sold out of the OTC that was there yesterday , But in its place they have put up a bunch of the OVT Han,Liea,Obi-Won Still no sign of Luke.
    Cant wait for the ESB & ROTJ wave.

    Well Target is absolutely bare. It is a ghost town by the STAR WARS toys today. I did see Sara working up front though. Sorry, I did not stop and say "HI", but you looked busy and I did not want to bother you.
    Kmart, KayBee, and Sam Goody were also bare bones.

    I hardly ever walk into good stuff. Oh well, I guess that I do not need it.

    It did get a little crazy at Target today, and it's only going to get crazier with students moving back :) Sorry I missed you Dennis!

    Sara,
    it is like I said, I didn't want to bother you while you worked.

    Hey everyone,

    Wal Mart was the place tonight. They had the following OTC figures: Obi Wan-ANH, Leia Bespin, Lobot, Cloud Car Pilot and Stormtrooper. I bought one of each which gives me two Stormtroopers. If anyone is looking for one, let me know. I left a Lobot and Cloud Car Pilot for the next guy.

    If I were to start collecting figures what should I start with? Anything else I should know about the toy collecting side of Star Wars? Thanks all.

    Well, I am not the "Action Figure Advisor" or anything, but let me give you some advice. Collect what you think that you will like. I collect stuff from the original trilogy and not so much from the two newer films. I ignore a lot of those figures unless one really catches my eye as cool enough to owned by me.

    If you like it, collect it. The VOTC are very unique items because they have a vintage looking cardback that recalls the good old days of 1978 through 1985 when the original trilogy toys were out. They are a good jumping off point because of that.

    Another thing that you could do is collect the particular characters that you like from the movies. Like you could collect all imperial guys or "bad" guys like the bounty hunters. That is something that a lot of people do.

    Now, the crazy people try to buy every figure that is being made. That could to lead to not only empty pockets, but high levels of frustration trying to find all of the figures. But, people, like my dentist, do just that. He loves the challenge of finding that figure that no one else can find. I am not sure when he has time, but he manages.

    Just my two cents,
    Good luck

    Hey Dennis, how's the card on that extra stormtrooper? I'll take it if it's not beat up too bad.

    It has a crease on the lower right hand corner. It is about 1 inch long. But, other than that, It looks pretty good.

    Rebel Scum is reporting that TRU in Greenwood got in a case of ESB Original vintage trilogy figures. So keep a look out for them starting now.

    new stuff does not last at that Toys r Us. I would imagine that it was found and gone in the same 5 minutes. [face_dancing]

    ObiWan
    Chewbacca
    Luke X Wing
    Red Clonetrooper

    Too late at Target for the Unleashed. Although they had a hole case of OTC there with only one Boba Fett ( which I got). John & I are heading back out there in a few Min's. And they had The Leia w/Glass marked down to #7.99
    Oh & B&N did get the new issue of LEE'S Guide in and its VERY good this month with a huge emphasis on SW.


    Good luck Bounty Hunters!

    Dang it, I always miss everything. I did make it into Target today and it looks like they put out a fresh case of OTC. I got the Greedo, C-3PO, R2-D2, Vader-ROTJ, Yoda and Han Solo. Pretty cool figures.

    Dennis

    I went into Borders to get the new Lee's and they did not have it. CRAP! I didn't feel like stopping at BandN. I will get it sometime else.

    John & I went on a toy run last night around I-465 and the surrounding SR's.
    We hit 2 Mijer's 2 TRU & 4 Target's. John found 4 OTC figure's he did not have and the only thing I found were Booster Pack's of TCG and a AOTC STARTER SET at TRU for a whooping $1.98 !!
    So Brad & Austin I have a good amount of cards building up. I found 5 packs of "Hero's & Villains" 3 packs of ESB and 2 pack's of TPM. Target had each of them at $3.69 a pack.
    Funny thing about the hole toy run last night is we found more "THOMAS THE TRAIN " for Sam ( my 3 year old ) then anything else.

    I assume that you went to the Greenwood Toys R US, Target and Meijers?? They never have a lot at those stores for some reason. There must be a lot of collectors around that area.

    Dennis

    Heading to Greenwood in half an hour.
