    So I'm not sure if there is a thread about this, I looked some but couldn't find one...

    So I did my rounds last night and here's what I found that seemed worth mentioning

    Wal-Mart on Meachem Rd in Elk Grove- Nothing you can't find anywhere else.

    Target on Higgins Rd in Schaumburg- Nothing you can't find anywhere else.

    Toys-R-Us on Golf Rd in Schaumburg- They have One Han Solo, and a few Obi Wan Unleashed.

    Kay Bee in Woodfield- tons of peg warmers for $2.99 each.

    I going to hit the Target on Barrington Rd tonight.

    Can I hire you to make the rounds here on the South End of town?

    I haven't been in the stores too much lately...

    I wish I had the time. I make the rounds once a week, if I'm lucky, and that only started about 3 weeks ago. I also seem to be off on the stock days, because I have YET to find any new figures. Well actually I did find a Durge/Speeder at TRU, and I got that, but otherwise nothing to speak of.

    Oh I should mention, I am mainly only looking for small figures. If you want me to look for something specific I would be happy to keep an eye out for ya!

    Hey, I work around you, since I just checked that same Walmart on Meacham yesterday during lunch. That one has been pretty dry. No Deluxe figures to speak of ever. :(
    Be sure to check out the Collecting Club Thread, it's kinda of huge right now, but we have a lot of fun talking about toys.

    There is no better place for finding out what's available at retail in the Chicagoland area.

    Well I got everything I was looking for this weekend! I did have to snag a super posable Clone Trooper from someones stash, but I left one so I don't feel bad. I officially gave up any hope of finding the McQuarrie Stormtrooper though so I got one off ebay at a reasonable price. So now I just have to find other figures to hunt for....

    Being 2 minutes from the Target on Barrington, I can tell you now that that store is the worst on SW toy stock. Only second to the Wal-Mart down the street, which had a total of 4 figures on the pegs yesterday.

    Yea the same with the one on Higgins. The place that I made out the best was the Wal-Mart on Rand Rd and Central, in Mt. Prospect. As well as the Wal-Mart near the intersection of Algonquin and Golf Rd.
