    That sounds scary. I've been there. Money secrets aren't good for relationships--especially if you're like me and don't really have the money to spend...

    Hey Hyperspace..A friend of mine found the unleashed shadow trooper at the Wal Mart in NLR..they had it for $6...

    As for anyone selling off stuff, I am interested, but I only really collect vintage stuff. If you have any to part with Otis let me know...

Not to mention the Gentle Giant busts of Malik and Gree. The only good news is I did start offical on the musuem the other day.

    I've seen some of wave 2, but only the most common of wave 1. I got a couple concept fetts at Target the other day but haven't seen the concept trooper or the airborne trooper, among others...

    So I just moved down to Little Rock from Fayetteville this month and do a lot of my shopping at Walmart way out west on Cantrell.
    I've noticed they rarely ever keep that placed up to date on the new stuff. Ex.: there are no 30 Anniv. figures there yet.
    Have you guys noticed this usually being the case there?

    Also just a heads up on Target's clearance on their exclusive Order 66 two packs. They are just $2.48 each and they have PLENTY of each. The manager told me he thought they had a few more boxes of them not even put out on the already crowded shelf yet. He also told me a scalper has already hit them up for about 30 of them. :mad:

    It's a bit worse than being a "scalper"... We have a couple of "dealers" down here.

    Welcome to the Rock. Can we look forward to meeting you at an event or get together?

    Feel free to pm me or Nyborg for information on anything...

    And we haven't seen much in the way of the 30th anniversary line... There's either somebody getting the boxes at night before they go on the shelf
    or our Wal-Mart's are waiting until the older stuff is gone? Not sure which it is...

    I gave up and just bought the waves and dealt with the shipping costs... With gas the price that it is... It's just as cheap.

    Welcome to our little corner of Toy Hunting difficulties.

    Post the items you're most looking for and we usually contact each other when we know somebody's looking for something particular to see if they still need it
    and grab it for them. (thats if you don't mind sharing your cell number or something like that...)

    Wow we made it back from CIV and Im broke. My wife said rooms, toys, gas and all was around $2800. But thats ok I got some cool exclusives like::: Medicom RAH Sandtrooper, Gree bust, Malik bust, Yoda bust, Luke concept, R2 3PO concept, Han Luke bustups.
    Plus several reagular items and about 10 new autographes for the musuem. Which now that Im home and CIV is out of the way I plan on getting built SOON.

    Stark- I shop at the Cantrell WalMart also... very poor selection!
    Try the WalMart on Bowman. It carries a little more.
    I find that your best bet in Little Rock is to shop at Target... love the Battle Packs!!!
    I'm going today to pick up some more of the Order 66 figures that you mentioned...Thanks for the heads up!

    I checked out the TRU for the first time here in LR. Managed to find a few more 30thAniv figs. I'm still missing the Airborne clone. I could have bought him a long time ago in Fayetteville, but I notice he was going to be included in several waves so I waited. I assumed there would be plenty of places for me to look down here anyway. That doesn't seem to be the case so far.
    It would be smart to order by the wave. But my wife doesn't really approve of my collecting, so while I might get away with grabbing one or two figures at a time, ordering a whole $60-70 wave every few months would probably not be cool. Plus I don't usually want every figure in a wave.
    Would you guys let me know if you spot an airborne trooper somewhere. That is, if you don't want it. ;)

    Walmart seems to be a little behind on the 30th anniversary figures. I've been finding them, but only in fits and spurts. I finally came across wave 2 at Jacksonville walmart this past weekend, but of course, no Mcquarrie Boba Fett. I got lucky and finally found one stray Mcquarrie Stormtrooper at TRU in NLR 2 weeks ago. Would like to have one more, to open, and at least one concept Boba. Picked up the comic 2 pack of Luke/R2 at the NLR walmart recently.

    Otherwise, have been feeding my Star Wars monkey lately on ebay. Picked up the last Burger King ESB glass I needed, and a Halmark Boba Fett ornament.

    Wave 3 spotted at NLR TRU. Picked up a Mcquarrie Chewbaca, Jawa with droid, and the deleted scene Biggs. They had other new ones, but my budget and an upcoming trip to Memphis this week put the kabosh on that.

    I'm still looking for McQuarrie Boba Fett, and an "Animated debut" (Holiday Special) Boba Fett, if anybody could give me a heads up, would greatly appreciate.

    Memphis is scary.

    Hopefully I can get that Stormtrooper from Wave 3.

    The Cantrell Walmart has finally leaped into the year 2007 and got Wave 1 of the 30th anniv figs on the pegs.
    Looks like someone has are ready stipped the pegs of the Airborne troopers but I saw all of the others.
    They finally got the V-wing wave of titaniums, as well.

    Havn't found any good new figs latley, but then again I havn't been looking. I did recently pick up the Tusken Raider Halmark ornament. All 4 of them are great, and I plan to get the rest, but I had to get the Tusken first, since it is the only "limited edition" ornament, I was afraid if I waited that I'd miss out. Also have started finding the TAC cards at NLR Walmart (not the customizalbe game, which has been on the shelves for a while now. I'm talking about the actual trading cards.) If you havn't seen these yet, they're worth checking out.

    Alas, it seems I've missed out on getting a Mcquarrie concepts Boba Fett. I've looked, but never could track it down. If anyone has an extra that they want to unload for a reasonable price, let me know.

    solo71 is a newbie that we met at the Library event in Searcy...

    Going to try and get him hooked up with some Obi styling Jediness...

    So, he's good to deal with...

    Anybody know when the next Galactic Hero wave is due out...I'm too lazy to look for myself...

    You mean this wave?

    EE says December for them, which means it might be next year for us.
    Have you seen the sets with the Wompa and N-1 fighter at TRU?

    I saw Helrot at TRU today--which means they had figures I want, but already sold them...
