Made a few stops today on my day off. Checked out Targets in Colonie, Latham, and Niskayuna. Only saw Hoth wave at Latham one though, passed on it because of the assinine prices of 6.99. Also checked out Wal-Mart's in Rotterdam, K-Mart in Colonie and Wal-Mart in Latham, nothing really new though. If anyone stumbles upon a Millenium Falcon on clearance anywhere please grab it for me, I'm willing to pay up to 50 for one, please help if possible!

I'm in the Capital District area Jedi....but onto my news.

Wal-Mart (Glenmont)
Full Hoth Wave and Carkoon Wave, picked up the entire hoth wave was happy to find them in stock.

Target (E. Greenbush)
Remnants of Carkoon wave, with one snowtrooper lingering around. ROTS cases still on clearance at 2.48 a pop...might wait to see if they drop anymore.

Wal-Mart (E. Greenbush)
Picked up Snowtrooper and AT-AT driver. Leftovers of Carkoon lingering.

In the 3 years plus that this thread has been posting, drsidious, Darthquack and I are the only "regular" posters. Drsid & I are from WNY while a few other posters, elkthunder, AndyH, Ret & Sinister Lord are from the area but post infrequently.

Target I work at had all of the Vintage line, I'm sure they're gone now, had the best and worst versions as well.
 
Target had a few clearances to mention.

The Luke Skywalker motorcycle was clearanced for lord knows how much.

The exclusive Grevious (which there are plenty of) now cost $11.00.

The Emperor's Throne Room Battle Pack is $16.98, originally $19.99.

So I found the LEGO Sail Barge and Imperial Star Destroyer, and they both look SICK. Found them at Target in East Greenbush.
 
I went up and down Niagara Falls Boulevard and Delaware Avenue today and saw the following:

Target on Delaware: Plenty of figures, just nothing worth of note.


Kay-Bee on Delaware: See above.


K-Mart on Hertel: Got a Darth Vader Action Bank for clearance price of $12. Batteries were shot so the thing didn't work, that's why i think it was clearanced so low. Went home, put the new batteries in, and it works fine.

Also had a 10% sale off any regular Star Wars item. Everything I wanted, they had overpriced anyway, so the 10% amounted to nothing.


Toys R Us on the Boulevard: Saw the AT-AT Walker for $90, actually contemplated getting it, had it in my hand, but saw the heroes and villains figures on sale for $5.99 and took advantage of that sale.


K-Mart on the Boulevard: Doing a restocking of the shelves, had very little, but again, a 10% sale.

Some recent finds...

At Blvd Mall KB Toys I picked up the reissued "EPII Greatest Battles" R4-G9 and AT-TE Tank Gunner.

Also at Blvd TRU I found Moff Jerjerrod. They also had the C-3PO with the Ewok chair, but I passed... didn't find any of Chief Chirpa, still looking for that one.
 
Welcome Back Sinister Lord! :thumbsup:

I sighted those Boulevard TRU figures that you mentioned plus the Chief Cherpa that is hard to find over the weekend. Ended up getting a Leia Boush simply because I wanted one during her initial run but passed up on it then.

Welcome Back Sinister Lord! :thumbsup:
Thanks, I guess I sorta forgot about this place... I've actually been spending a lot more time on my GI Joe collection over the past couple years and only buying the Star Wars stuff once in a blue moon. GI Joe is basically kinda dead right now at retail, because Hasbro discontinued 12" GI Joe and relegated most of the 3¾" product to the online stores, but I still check the toy stores every once in a while. Sometimes I get lucky and find a few Star Wars toys I want, but it's kinda rare.
