I thought Jobare1's idea of a common area thread was a great idea so here goes.
I went to the WM at Potomac Mills this morning since others had luck there yesterday and not a single AOTC figure was in sight. I saw about 8 boxes that said "Do Not Open Until April 23rd" on a pallet and asked the woman stocking toys when they would be out and she just smiled. She left to answer a call so I opened the top box and found the remaining 8 I needed and went to the cashier. They rang up "Do Not Sell" and I explained that I had bought several two days ago. So she called for help and the Head Cashier said they were recalled and could not sell them, regardless of any previous purchase. So I left empty handed.
Sorry to hear about the wasted trip this morning, but I also went there around 6:30 this morning, just to see if they were still there and I found the exact same thing........5 empty shelves. I guess someone there finally got the message about not selling/displaying them. I wish I had access to the internet at work, I probably could have saved ya a trip.
Does this only apply for Hasbro toys or is this lego as well? I am planning on heading down to a store that had the gunship lego the other day and pick one up, but i don't want to go if i am going to get turned back at the register.
I would assume that this would also apply to the Lego's too. I was in the Pot. Mills WalMart about 2 weeks ago and found a whole pallet filled with AOTC Lego boxes as well as a couple of Jedi Starfighter boxes. This pallet was being plastic wrapped and taken to the back and I've never seen any of the Lego sets on display at the store. Then again, this is the store where I got both coll. 1 & 2 figures a couple of days ago, but they've since pulled them all.
I'm not saying that they're not gonna be there, but I highly doubt it and chances are that if it is there, will it ring up at the register?
I just found the new ATOC Cereal at Wies Mt. Airy. They had one with Obi/Jango and another with Count dooku/anakin/padme on the fronts. They also have Star Wars Adventure game on the back. They had a new picture of the Jedi Libary on the back.
Stopped by the Potomac Mills WalMart on my way to work this morning and found both the bomber and speeder. They were on the top shelf and I couldn't reach them. Since I was running late for work I couldn't search for anything to use to reach them so I figured I'd come back at lunch time and get them. Big freak'n mistake. They were gone. Guess they either pulled them back off the shelf or someone bought them all.
Just went to the Toys R Us in Latham, MD. They had lots of Jango Fett, Clone Trooper, and the other preview figs ($5.99 ea.) There were a few AT-STs. They still have 3 Han Solo/Millenium falcon CD-Rom games (I thought about getting one, but I haven't heard anything about it). They also had Anakin's podracer and some droid fighters from EP 1.
Ames in Latham didn't have anything new. Just EP 1 Preview Battle Droid with STAP, Leia in speederbike, and 2 POTJ figs (Ben and Qui Gon).
Target in Largo has moved all of their Star Wars to a clearance aisle. There are now WWF figs where the POTJ figs were.
