    thanks for the update dennis. It seems like the stores are slowing down for the moment. Maybe that means here in a few weeks we're going to see a lot of new stuff.

    I saw place holders at various stores that either were not filled yet or empty??? I wonder if our Wal Mart is going to get the carrying cases?? I want the Vader for the Stormtrooper and Boba Fett.

    Target had a huge number of OTC figures last night.
    Lukes, Han, Obi-Wan, R2, C-3PO, Boba Fett, Greedo and the likes.

    Kaybee did not have ephant mon...the store clerk said that a lot people have been asking about the figure, but one person bought like the last 5 or 6 last Saturday morning.
    (side note: someone from Bedford had 4 different auctions of these figures that started Saturday night and ended Thursday night on EBAY...hmmmmmm)

    Went to Toys R Us in Greenwood. They had lots of Saga figures, same ol VOTC and 12in VOTC. Several vehicles to choose from also.
    Greenwood Super Target had VOTC, SAGA AND some OTC figures and not much else.

    Dennis

    TRU in Greenwood did have the exclusive 12" Boushh/Han Carbonite 2 pack on clearance for about $12.50. They had quite a few, but the boxes were all pretty beat up. Still, the price was right so Mike & I picked one up :)

    Oh yeah, I saw those...I forgot to mention that. They were really beat up though. They also had some other older Saga 12 inch on clearance.

    Okay, I walked into Wal Mart and saw a cool little display for the OTC DVD release. Liked it a lot!!
    I walked back to the toys to the SW section and found nothing, nothing, nothing...then a huge display of OTC Millennium Falcons. There were 20 of them inside a huge Falcon display. There was nothing else inside except Falcons...worth the look though.

    Target and Kaybee did not have much yesterday. Someone opened a OTC MF at Target for some reason?? I cannot imagine why someone would open the Falcon, but they did. I might have my wife run to Greenwood today and checkout ToysRus to see if they have anything...get back to you later.

    Kimberly did not go to Greenwood on Sunday...we went to Wal Mart here in Bloomington and found NOTHING new.
    We actually ran in there Wednesday night and found nothing new, but new spaces for new things when they get them. Don't know when...but it looks to be very soon.

    Everywhere seems to have the same old stuff lately. Even Target has had the same stuff on thier shelves for a couple weeks now. Is everyone holding off until Tues. before they put alot of stuff out? I'm still needing my ESB VOTC wave!

    On the way home from the Reds game, I stopped at Lawrenceburg Super Wal Mart...They had an enormous display of VOTC stuff with all six figures currently out, tons of Falcons and many other things. They did not have the carrying cases though. They also had several Unleashed figures on clearance for $11. They had a huge amount of clearance stuff from Transformers to Harry Potter, Spiderman, LOTR and Star Wars.

    They also had A LOT of 12 in figures like Yoda, Luke, Jawas, Ewoks, Original Obi-Wan.
    If you make it that way sometime soon...it is diffently worth the stop.

    I did not buy anything because nothing jumped out at me except the VOTC figs, but I have all six.

    I wonder if Paoli Super WalMart is that stacked???

    I was at the Paoli Super WalMart today. It's like a ghost town full of '02 figs.

    Okay, for those that collect the Galactic Heroes...West side K Mart has the three new 2 packs.
    They have several of each, but it looks like the Yoda, Clone Trooper is either short packed or popular.
    So, you better get over there soon to get them before Vintage Phoenix picks up on it.

    For those that care, The Sam's Club Falcon with six figures is here in Bloomington. If you have an extra $65 to spend on one...you better get there before everyone else. They had about 15-20 and they put them out today. I bought the first one!!!

    Went to the mall today....

    Stop in at Target.

    They have the 3 new unleashed figures. Sorry i couldn't call anyone, when i took my phone out of my pocket it was dead. They have 3 of the Tusken Raiders and 3 of the Aayla Secura and 1 of Bossk. I could only afford 1 so I got Bossk.

    For those of us that collect the Galactic Heroes. They have the Bounty Hunter line out. I saw Boba Fett & Dengar and IG-88 & Zuckuss but not 4-LOM & Bossk. The ones that are there are kinda smashed. I got the ones that were the least smashed. Thier was only 2 of each. Now their is 1 of each.

    No new OTC or VOTC. Tons of lightsabers though.

    Thats all for now
