By Mike — Sunday, May 27, 2012

GHR hopes all of you are having an awesome Memorial Day weekend, enjoying a great long weekend and barbecue with the family, and honoring the brave who have served and presently serve this great nation of ours. There's a nice Target sale this week, and as we reported earlier, the B-Wings are cheap, but not for long. UPDATE: TRU also having a BOGO through June 2nd.

GHR: Nothing But STAR WARS, Tuesday Mornings, Whoa Joe!

By Mike — Friday, May 25, 2012

It's the 35th anniversary of Star Wars…nothing but STAR WARS! Which made GHR pause and think that the 30th Anniversary Collection was five years ago? Man, how time flies. Regular merchandise is showing up with more frequency, and so is older stuff at great close out discounts. Tuesday Morning was only an awesome tune from The Pogues until I recently found some Vintage Wave 9 for $5 each.

By Mike — Tuesday, May 22, 2012

As we approach Memorial Day and the beginning of the summer season, the question on many collector's minds is when will new stuff start hitting and old merch clearanced out. With stores still carrying January stock, it's about time for a refresh.

By Mike — Sunday, May 13, 2012

There's finally some break through after a few months of a devil's existence and lingering TPM Wave 1's as Wal-Mart is receiving shipments of Vintage Wave 4 with Dr. Evazan, Aayla Secura, and Kithaba

GHR: TRU 30% Off Sale

By Mike — Wednesday, May 9, 2012

Spring hunting has been pretty sparse with new merchandise at brick and mortars, probably due to the focus on some big super hero movie. As January launch waves of Movie Heroes and Clone Wars continue to hang on pegs, many collectors have turned to shopping online for the latest figures.

GHR: Target 50% Coupon, TRU BOGO, K-Mart Sale

By Mike — Sunday, March 25, 2012

There are a few deals this week including a 50% off coupon at Target and another ToysRUs BOGO for their 3.75 inch action figures. Will the Discover The Force Battle Packs ever show up in stores again? This and an awesome new K-Mart sale in the latest Galactic Hunt Report!

GHR: Ross Has More WM Exclusives

By Mike — Friday, March 16, 2012

In what seems to be the default retail flow for Walmart exclusives, the bargain chain finds continue as Jedi Temple Warchives...ehrmmm...Archives (Just kiddin Paul! We think your site rocks!), reports finding the Barc Speeder with Clone Trooper Buzz and AT-RT with Arf Trooper at a Ross Department store.

GHR: G8-R3 And DTF Packaging Variants

By Mike — Tuesday, March 13, 2012

We are able to further confirm Yakface's report on the G8-R3 Harness Paint variant while hunting a Scottsdale, AZ Walmart. The unpainted harness appears to be the more uncommon for now. There's also a packaging/blister variation with the Discover The Force assortment. Hard core variant collectors take note.

GHR: Movie Heroes Wave 2, DTF Clearance and Variants

By Mike — Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Despite lingering stock of Movie Heroes Wave 1 and Clone Wars re-issues, we found the second wave of Movie Heroes featuring mostly new or "newish" figures, particularly the awesome new Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi with Light Up Lightsabers.

GHR: TRU BOGO, New Gentle Giant Exclusives, Online Deals, Curto

By Mike — Sunday, March 11, 2012

There's certainly been a disturbance in The Force the last few days with the passing of the legendary Ralph McQuarrie, Hasbro announcing a reduction in force of 170 employees, and Curto moving on. The store activity has also lulled, save for the recent Walmart markdowns. This week starts with a new TRU BOGO offer and hunting for some good online deals. 

GHR: Podracer Pilots Sale, Walmart Clearance On New Stuff

By Mike — Wednesday, March 7, 2012

Walmart's known to follow their own lead, so when it's time to make shelf space, why not start moving that "new" old stuff? No massive sale at ToysRUs this week, but there are a couple of items cheaper than usual.

 

GHR: Speaking Of BMF's

By Mike — Sunday, February 26, 2012

There was a question in a past Q&A about finding The Legacy Collection Millennium Falcon (aka BMF) at retail and FREE Shipping. Well, we have the answer to this question, this week's ToysRUs deal, and an update to yesterday's Walmart $4 Vintage bonanza in today's Galactic Hunt Report!

GHR: $4 Vintage, ALL OF THEM, At Walmart

By Mike — Saturday, February 25, 2012

Walmart screwed up, and it's to your benefit, Hunters. They've marked down ALL their Vintage Collection basic figures to $4 (regularly $8.96). ALL means the latest The Phantom Menace and Blu-Ray Deleted Scenes waves (if you can find them).
