I found the new Clone Wars wave with Bariss Offee in the Bellefontaine Walmart on 5/14. They had one of every figure from that wave and I picked up Bariss for my son. They had all the Dark of the Moon figures on the shelf as well.
I went back to one of the Targets that told me that they couldn't put the three-packs out until the 15th and discovered that they HAD put them out early!! Son of a Bith! Fortunately, they had one of the Hoth sets and one of the Imperial sets. I just wanted the Hoth one for the trooper variant and another Leia.
Managed to get wave three, revision eleven from Entertainment Earth on a fluke the other day. Was pre-sold out for months and I hit it at the right time. So-- I have a Wedge and a Gamorrean Guard on the way at long last! My friend is grabbing a couple figures out of the assortment for himself and the rest have questionable fates.
Finally found some new Star Wars figures at TRU. Found Logray, Han Solo, Bom Vimdin, Rebel Fleet Trooper. I got those and left Bariss Offee and Arc Commander on the peg. They were fresh out of the case and only one of each in the case.
I stopped at my local TARGET last night to discover that they have reset their toy aisle. They put up the Star Wars endcap, but there is NOTHING new on it!! There was one Cloud Car Pilot hanging on one of the three pegs devoted to Vintage and there were a few older vehicles on the shelf. The Geonosis 2-packs were still lingering at $16.99 each and there was a smattering of Legacy and CW figures on the pegs.
The endcap had the electronic Grievous and Clone Trooper masks (one each), a selection of lightsabers that have clearly been there for quite some time and a bunch of figures. Those figures? More of the figures that were on the pegs in the aisle and the rest of the Vintage figures that have been sitting there since October (Dengar, Cloud Car Pilot, Sandtrooper, Phase II Clone).
What an amazing bounty to discover!!! :livid:
Well, at least it's been reset. I suppose that means they'll eventually have to give in and order some product to match the shelf tags that were out. Whee.
I went to Target over the weekend. They had all the Jedi Force stuff; my son was not real interested. They had the new FX lightsabers, three packs, deluxe vehicle packs - Castas looks cool, Republic attack cruiser. They also had a couple of the new G. I. Joe Skystriker...I almost bought it...almost.
I walked out with a new Wes Welker McFarlane Sports Pick figure and that was it.
