I just have to throw my 2 cents in on this. One more time:   I will never try to convince anyone to like 5 POA if they don't. It's an aquired taste. But as far as pricing goes, they are at the sa

So Black Series Luke's multiple hair colors bugged me. For every new figure, there was a new take on his hair color. I went and customized my Jedi and Bespin Lukes so that they match. When two diff

I got my Lando and Sand People figures today. Both are amazing! I love that you can interchange spear heads on the Sand Person's spear. Lando's cape works very well, I'm a soft goods lover but the

Today I Went to a WG across the street from work.....I was a day late though, all gone, so close...Went to lunch w/my sis & got off of work early today too, so there were good vibes in the air.....we ate & then hit 3 WG's close to home. The manager was in the middle of a reset....he let me pick through the tubs that were out.....I didn't make a mess, this store had 3 Boba's I picked out the one that was splotch-free... very professional dude. many thanks to that manager.....didn't see any signs of ML's....I stopped off at 2 more stores & they weren't budging on their stuff they're waiting for the reset & display so maybe they have some stock beyond the smorgasbord that is 3 random figures...so far every employee I've dealt w/was cool they were willing to take names even if they meant to throw it in the trash after I left or even go in the back & check the stock of figs & make sure it wouldn't affect what they were buying.....but seriously I felt 99% of them were making an effort to help a collector out.....which is more than some other box-stores do.....so tomorrow hopefully I'll get a Chewie & Darth (a chewie sounds borderline perverse).......on the way out of every WG's I checked the Redbox for Winter Soldier but no dice....he vanished like some sort of ghost

Has anybody here found the Walgreens Boba Fett? I see people on FB posting the pictures but I haven't seen them yet....except the Marvel Legends

 

I have found 3 of them, one is on my wall, one is opened and the other went to a friend of mine. I have found all of that wave at Walgreens, yyesterday I nabbed Jedi Luke and the snadtrooper.

Well, I got one from a fellow TNI member and picked up 2 Boba Fetts at 2 separate WG's. Wheeljack I will keep an eye out for you if you need the Proto Fett. The other figures I found were Vader and the Jedi Luke.

 

I could use a Jedi Luke, Vader, Sandtrooper, ans Chewie if anyone out there can help. I have all except the Sandtrooper and would love to have another of each to open.

I will keep an eye out.

 

Thanks so much. Vader can b knocked off that list as I got too impatient and bought him off of eBay a few minutes ago. I would still like a Chewie, Luke, and any Sandtroopers that can be found. I will be forever indebted to anyone who can fine them! If I can help anyone else out with their needs (as long as it isn't Walgreens exclusives), I will do my best to return the favor. Yojoebro82 can vouch for me... I think he's the only one on here I have ever traded with. :)

Well I went to all the walgreens in my area and no luck.I had to go to my brothers house on sunday.He lives a half hour away.So I hit the Walgreens near him and they had to Darth Vaders in stock so I thought They have them but all the Bobas were gone.So this kid asked me if I needed help I then told him what I was looking for so he called a stockperson the the front.we then tried to expain what I wanted to this stock guy who possibly was in his early 50's.He gave me this look that Used to get back in the early 80's when Star wars was brand new.He had no clue what I was talking about or who Boba Fett was.I waited a bit then seen them come back over to the toy area.They both looked puzzled which told me "F this" So I left.

 

I since have asked the stores but as usual nobody knows what I was talking about. Was there an actual release date for the figures? and are some of the stores putting them out early?

If you can find Chewie, Jedi Luke, or a Sandtrooper, I would trade you a Boba! That goes for anyone else as well.

I was needing Vader last week, but I ended up getting one to open this past weekend off of eBay. Sorry.

Ok... Time for me to eat a little bit of crow.

 

I got my two Darth Vaders that I won off of eBay today, so I finally had one to open, and I must say that having he figure loose in my hands has changed my mind a little on the figure.

 

Sure there are still problems, like his eyes being too big, his skinny arms, and his skirt and cape both being too long, but he does look much, MUCH better out of the plastic and cardboard confines of his box.

 

Looking at the size of the figure's head (which I thought the dome part of his helmet was too small) in the box is very deceiving s the plastic tray that holds the figure in place makes the helmet look smaller than it actually is. Upon opening him, it doesn't look too small at all and is actually quite nice. Taking the helmet apart and exposing the Anakin head underneath was a little bit of a let down (I don't think the sculpt much resembles the actor from Jedi and the head inside the helmet looks tiny compared to the bulk of the figure), but other than that, I am fairly pleased with Darth after all.

 

So, to yojoebro82 and everyone else that had nothing but love for this figure as I tore it down... I apologize. After all is said and done, I can now, with a smile on my face, place this figure among the hoard of Stormtroopers I have to lead my evil Galactic Empire!

 

In the end, I guess this just goes to show that you really can't judge a book by its cover, or how an action figure looks in its packaging, I display most of my collection loose anyway, but I fell in love with the way these figures look in their boxes, so I will hold off all other opinions til I have one to open as well. There may still be hope for that Jedi Luke as well... Who knows.

FINALLY!! I found it at a little known Walgreens in my area..The funny thing it was the only figure there.No other figure was out

 

whitefett_zps01e79043.jpg

 

I have actually heard about, and seen, this a lot.

 

Of the stores I have been able to go to looking for these figures, this Boba Fett has been the one constant that every store has had. In my travels (plus the numerous phone calls I have made), it seems that the Sandtrooper (of which I have found none), Chewie and Vader have been the hardest to find, followed closely by Luke. Most every store that I have called has had both the Boba fett along with, maybe, one other figure in the wave. That is why I haven't gotten any others as it isn't worth the time and gas to travel as far as I would have to to get one figure that I need.

 

I suppose the only reason I can find for the availability of Boba compared to the others, when Boba is the ONLY Walgreens exclusive (where eBay sellers would have you believe otherwise as most list EVERY figure from the wave as a Walgreens exclusive) is that there are two of him in every case and only one of every other figure. I still find it funny that there are so many of the only true exclusive left on the shelves.

Forgive me if I posted this but I have only seen Vader, the Jedi Luke and of course Boba Fett. I have not seen Chewie or the Sandtrooper. I really wish Walgreens will start getting full cases of these in. This is getting old really quick. Walgreens really had no clue as to what they were in for when they took the Proto Fett on as an exclusive. I get the blank stares from Walgreens managers. The online store tracker thing is a joke. On sote says they have them in store go to that store and nada.

You said it as far as the online tracker goes. I called four stores this weekend and all showed in stock online, but none of the stores had them. I also don't understand the whole online tracker deal... It gives you an icon to click that says "Pick up in store", but nowhere does it give you an option to enter your name or anything. It doesn't really give you the chance to reserve the figure til you get there or anything... as far as I can tell. That whole thing is really useless. When I mentioned it to the managers on the phone and told them the site said it was in stock, they said they'd never heard of that before. I also find it strange that you could (I say could because Boba as not on the walgreens.com site today when I checked) only check for the Boba Fett online. If they did it for the entire wave it would make more sense. Boba isn't the only figure in those cases right now.

 

On a side not... I mentioned my displeasure with preorders I have with Entertainment Earth for not only this wave of Black figures, but also the Speeder Bike and Jabba set as well as the previous wave including Anakin and the Clone Trooper. Well, since placing those preorders, I have found all of those figures except the Sandtrooper in stores and nothing has changed as far as their availability from EE. I have cancelled my orders for the Jabba and Speeder Bike, as well as the Anakin / Clone Trooper wave, but I noticed something funny about that Anakin wave the other day.

 

I go to EE and Big Bad every day to check the availability of their Black figures and when I checked EE, they still have the Vader wave as a September arrival (which was originally scheduled for August), but the Anakin wave (which still is not available) has changed from August arrival to September, then to November, and today wasn't even on the site at all!! The single Stormtroopers are still available as a September arrival, but the regular Boba Fett (the last of that Anakin wave) now says January!!

 

What the heck is going on with EE?! I order from them to take advantage of their free shipping since Big Bad doesn't offer that, but they haven't gotten anything new in and I have found wave after wave at retail already!

#1 no this wave is not exclusive to Walgreens stores, they have 8000 stores nationwide and their distribution is better than most retail outlets (some space is limited depending on the individual store). Boba is exclusive the rest of the wave is what shipped with Boba as online reports of Chewbacca and Vader being spotted at Wal Marts are spotty. Right now Walgreens is the place.

#2 Use this number , WIC# 352867 (the wic# for the entire wave) Do NOT only ask for Star Wars or Boba Fett just give them the number. If you just say "large Star Wars figures" because they will think it is the titan hero series of figures. The WIC# is the key. If you have a photo on your phone of a package show them that as well to help their search

#3 When you use the above number if the store you are located at does not have them they can accurately look up what stores in the area have them (not boba, the entire wave).

#4 The online search is for the whole case case assortment and updates at night, so if a store shows something in the morning and someone picks it up at 1pm, the store will still show it available at 5pm. It is a tool and can point yopu in the right direction.

#5 USE THE WIC #352867

 

I obtained the entire set by driving around between my calls and asking managers at every walgreens I can find (on your android or I phone use the maps and type in Walgreens and search, it will put them up). It works you just have to be wiling to put the effort out to get them.

everything I posted above is from personal experience too.
