I keep seeing malgus for $13 on amazon, but by the time i add to cart he is gone.. Its getting pretty annoying. ;)' I am NOT paying $33 for one figure.

Do you have some sort of a 'tracking' mechanism for when a price on amazon gets lowered?

Well i ended up reloading every once in a while and snagged one for $13.. Still.. this hobby is getting really NOT FUN. The thrill of finding stuff in the store is so much better.

I just happened to be on there and searched for Vintage Star Wars and it popped up. Glad you got one as well and I agree that the fun is gone. I miss the thrill of approaching the pegs and seeing a bunch of figures you've never seen before. Now almost all I see are leftovers from TPM wave. If it wasn't for the internet, I would only have figures through the deleted scene wave.

I've now gotten 2 of the new Naboo starfighters. The one that came in yesterday I had ordered a while back (thinking they were in stock) from a seller on Amazon. Since a long time had passed and I wasn't sure that one would ever come in, I ordered another 2 weeks ago that came in last week from a different seller. I had to pay $39 for one of them and $44 for the other, but that still isn't too bad considering the gas I would have wasted looking for them on the shelves around here. It's a fantastic ship. Much better detail than the older one. The cockpit is much improved, it has landing gear now, you can put in your own droid. I just wish it still had electronics, but those days are over in ships this size.

The new 3-packs are trickling in to VA Targets. Specificallyt Williamsburg, for me. I got the one with Snaggletooth. I need another boba like i need a hole in the head.. But I really liked the Snaggletooth when i was a kid. I didn't feel like spending $25 each for both sets so I didn't get the droids, yet.

Got the 2 new 3 packs at Target in Frederick, MD yesterday. The best part is they rang up $15 each.
Any idea how/why they rang up for that? Mine rang up for 'Not in system' and the guy checked and 24.99 was printed on the BOX they came from

I would get the droid set for $15

Glen Burnie Toys R Us had all 12 Lost Wave vintage(both cards) in stock & every one was beat/bent to crap(go figure). They also had the Ewok/Yavin pilot bp's back in stock(10 of each)...shame they didn't have them 9/6 when I had my BOGO rewards coupon. Annapolis has them also but beware...they are charging 4.00(or 8.00 for the set) more than the Glen Burnie or Columbia TRU's???

Haven't been to target, but TRU didn't have the speeders last week. It takes them a while to make it east so probably late this week at the earliest.

Just picked them up online though and got the BOGO 1/2 off price which paid for tax and shipping. Limit of 2 per purchase.

Wow, 2 hours later and already sold out (I guess this isn't terribly surprising.) Just got an e-mail saying the ones I ordered this AM are backordered, so I may keep hitting the stores until I get an e-mail saying they shipped.

Got the Maul returns battlepack at a Target in Riverdale, MD (I think that's the name of where I was.) It's somewhere on the other side of the DC beltway from Frederick. Had a lot of them for $19.99. Honestly I bought it for the nightsister, but the other 2 figures look good as well. I already had the armored savage and a realistic version of this Maul from the battlepack with Owen Lars, but since that's the only way top get a nightsister, I pulled the trigger without much thought.

Maul Returns is EVERYWHERE at Target down in Hampton Roads area.

I checked 3 Toys R Us last weekend. and again Tuesday, and no Biker Scouts yet in this area.

I like the Maul set but i wish Hasbro would make sure their figures can STAND UP without assistance (robot legs Maul, I'm looking at you).

Went to TRU yesterday and the very helpful manager looked up the speeder bikes in the computer for me. She said they hadn't even gotten to the main distribution warehouse that serves the DC area yet (1340 were on order for the area.) So a few more days should do it for us.

Seriously wondering what is up with these exclusives in Virginia. It sounds like they are showing up everywhere else. Checked Toys'r'Us yesterday and today, no Speeder bikes. Several different K-marts yesterday and today, no 2 figure sets. Very strange that these seem to be hitting everywhere else. Yesterday i did the drive from Va Tech to Newport News, so the places i checked were roanoke/salem and Newport news. 5 hrs apart. nothing either spot.
