    I found my first four POTJ figures at the NH location I mentioned back when they first came out. I still remember opening them in the car on the way home and reading the little booklets. I went to FF 2015 up there, but it was lame because they didn’t have enough stuff. There was a line the length of the front of TRU and they only got four cases of 5poa and possibly less 6″. At first people were being very slow and calm picking out figures because we all assumed they had more. When the manager announced that what was on the pegs was it, people started scrambling. My mom came with me despite it being hard for her(it’s a tradition for us) and she was guarding a shopping cart that I had my stuff in. Some guy tried to take the cart from her claiming that he thought it was more stock . This was right after the announcement that there was no more stock. But hey, try and steal from an elderly woman to get new figures? Why not. Sometimes SW collectors can be real DB’s.

    I just made a similar comment above about an excellent location in NH that I used to go to a lot. I definitely miss going there looking for stuff. Having every possible store to find SW stuff all on one road is great, but only if there’s something to find. When I was younger I’d go up there with my mom. I’d find a bunch of figures, we’d have lunch and I’d open stuff in the car on the ride home. Good times that I definitely miss.

      its like that around here in New Bedford /Dartmouth. From here all the way down route 6 many of the same chains over and over. Warwick, RI is similar too
      well you find anything?… That you actually want?… If you’re a praying man (that gets to pallet’s first)

  • Bombadgungan

    I’ve never been to Indiana, Kentucky or Ohio! Am I missing out? I’ve been to South Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Nebraska, Texas and all in between.

  • Ugh! Should go check Target during lunch, but I’m afraid to see nothing but disappointment in the aisles.

  • Mike

    I went into this Target yesterday to kill time and get toothpaste, had no hope when walking in the toy aisle. Was shocked to see Thrawn right up front. They must have just put this out as the full case was there. I grabbed a Thrawn and a Shoretrooper. Went back by there this morning and the only Wave 3 left was both Jyn’s in disguise and 1 Deathtrooper. Thanks for the shout-out Jayson!

    • John Morgan

      would be great to get a dpci for that wave to see if its in their system or not

      • DPCIs don’t work like that because like figures share the same internal code

    My local Target sold out of Wave 1 well last fall, but got buried by Wave 2. Won’t be seeing Wave 3 there, and my local Walmart just past the 6 month mark for NOT RESTOCKING TBS 3.75″ and 5POA since the freakin week of Christmas.

    • Bombadgungan

      Such a disgrace!

  • Rykrof_Enloe

    Never hit my area and expect they never will. All the Targets got in WAY too much Wave One. So there’s no room on the pegs.

  • SID

    good luck everyone. I was fortunate enough to have my local wallys get one single case… Bought the entire thing minus Leia. I was not going to let trades for the last wave pass my by if I needed them.

    • CT-7567

      Same in my area. On Walmart got the wave a few times,bit I never saw it anywhere else.

      • SID

        yeah its really annoying for people trying to buy anything “new”. The same WalMart since then keeps putting out wave 2 instead.

        even with sales this week… TRU $12 black series (also 15% off clearance) or Walgreens $16 black series. None of this stuff moves. Just sits. While more of the same piles up… No matter the store or chain.

        even a single Gamestop might have a case of one figure like the lando ( got mine on Wednesday) but that’s if you even catch that whiff as you pass by.

        • CT-7567

          I want to get a FO TIE at TRU. If the battle damaged one is on clearance I still get 15% off, right?

          • SID

            yeah….with sale I think its down to $17 +tax but i think it ended yesterday (they will have the sale again I’m sure)

  • Skav Atar

    never seen a Thrawn or the flight suit Jyn or the others in Target or Walmart or ToysRus or any other retail store around the west side of Houston….

  • JasonBL

    Only ever saw these at Walmart in So Cal…Never at Target’s…

  • Bombadgungan

    Cool! Good to know. I was lucky enough to find bits and pieces of this wave a month or two back by checking multiple retailers in two states. The only one I still need is the Scarif Stormtrooper.

    • Brian Beck

      isn’t sad you had to go to 2 states to get these ? I only found ‘remnant’s’ way out side of my ‘shopping zone’.

      • Bombadgungan

        Well, Washington Walmarts always seem to have better stuff than Oregon stores. I guess it’s my lot in life.

      • CT-7567

        Before distribution became a nightmare, I actually used to enjoy taking a ride up to NH to look for stuff. No sales tax plus there’s a stretch of road with just about every major retail store plus Walgreens and even a comic shop all within about a mile of each other. They even still have a Kmart, which was important during the TVC days. It used to be one of my favorite places to go hunting, but now there’s no point in driving there because nothing makes it to retail anymore. Still my preferred place for FF since stuff can actually be found that day and because of the lack of sales tax, but I really miss taking day trips up there.

    • chad

      Same here . I found parts of the Thrawn wave at one Walmart and the full wave at another Walmart. The Targets in my area still have a lot of waves 1 and 2 they have to get though.
