  1. Get on some of the SW black 6" groups on facebook, they have people making robes and such for the figures at decent prices.
  2. Not exactly sure, but I am finished with preorders. This Vader wave is one of three now that I have found at retail long before they are in stock. Like I had said before. EE has pushed the Anakin / Clone Trooper wave back until November! Who knows how long it will be before they have the Vader wave. I know BBTS is better than EE and already have the Anakin wave in stock, but I would say that it will be sometime in October before they have Vader. I got burned on pre orders a long time ago. Every time I did one I found the figs well in advance.
  3. Omega 8 read my post on the bottom of the previous page, I said that the locator picks up all the figs from that wave.
  4. I found two stormtroopers recently, I left one behind because the paint app was bad on his frown.
  5. #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.
  6. Yup, last week they had him on sale.
  7. I messaged you the wic # to give them as well. Ill look out but the local stores are drying up now.
  8. 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. My haul from yesterday, 11 walgreens, one wal mart.
  9. A couple have reset down here, only the "lazy" ones seem to be taking their good old time.
  10. The only places I have seen those two over here is Targets.. Wal Marts seem to be holding some stuff back for the fall reset.
  11. Nabbed leader class Jetfire from a local Kmart.
  12. I notice people are bitching about pre orders for this figure all over (FB, Here, other collector sites) and something dawned on me, I don't see ANYONE bitching when regular figs that get pre ordered show up in the stores first.. Example, I read on Friday about HTS getting Leader class Jetfire and shipping later in the month, then I read about people in Canada and Virginia finding Jetfire but no one bitches "man that is unfair that they got them before my pre order".. It is only this Proto fett that has people losing their minds. Pre-order incentive, also known as pre-order bonus, is a marketing tactic whereby a retailer or manufacturer/publisher of a product (usually a book or video game) encourages buyers to reserve a copy of the product at the store prior to its release. Note this says NOTHING about pre orders shipping first, just reserving a copy. I spoke to a manager of walgreens on Friday when I picked up my Chewie and asked her flat if there was a release date on the figures, she said "no" and then gave me info which I had read about but never heard from one of their managers, "they are getting solid case assortments of Boba around Nov 1st just like the Agent Venom". She was quite knowledgeable about the collectables.
  13. If there was a "street date" then no one would have been able to purchase these. They are being found left and right out in the "wild" right now. I call BS on their claims.
  14. Picked up a white prototype Fett and a Darth Vader from one of the half a bajillion walgreens in the metro New Orleans area.
  15. Picked up a white prototype Fett and a Darth Vader from one of the half a bajillion walgreens in the metro New Orleans area.
  16. Again, if you want to check if a store in your area has one Find one particular walgreens and talk to the manager (or call if you need to), give him/her this number to look up 352867. If they have it in their stock ask to get them, if not ask if they can do a search of the other stores in your area and LYK what stores have them in. When you go to the other stores use the same number to have them bring them out to you. These are most likely in the stock room and not on the shelves.
  17. For those that want him Walgreens has been getting the Proto Armor Boba, Darth Vader, Chweie, Luke and Sandtrooper. This is what you need to do to find them because at almost every store they are in the stockroom. Find one particular walgreens and talk to the manager, give him/her this number to look up 352867. If they have it in their stock ask to get them, if not ask if they can do a search of the other stores in your area and LYK what stores have them in. When you go to the other stores use the same number to have them bring them out to you.
  18. That is effing brilliant.... Next question, WHERE IN THE HELL DID HE GET A LIFE SIZED HULK STATUE FROM???
  19. Oooh... Me likes... Hopefully soon all of the bounty hunters will be released...
  20. I have been seeing these pop up in stores recently too.
  21. Hopefully they will not be that difficult to find. It used to be easier when guys like us were kids and could walk into a Lionel Playworld and see a whole Isle of Transformers with no problem finding any of them.. I had two toy stores near me at the time one was Kiddy Town a toy store that was only in my hometown and Child World..God I remember the aisles with about a thousand transformrs and you didn't have to worry about finding the figures back then We had child world's other store Children's Palace.. Those were the good old days. And who knows, maybe Hasbro could give us more accurate Constructicons soon..
  22. No kidding... I am really digging the trooper (for various reasons of course)..
  23. Hopefully they will not be that difficult to find. It used to be easier when guys like us were kids and could walk into a Lionel Playworld and see a whole Isle of Transformers with no problem finding any of them..
