Target Menlo, reset their toys and has their exclusives out...although I bought all the Air Vipers.
Scooped up the only Helix, Hawk, and Flash.

I left two EELs, two SE's, 1 GS.

They also had SE with grey Timber as well, that I left.

Viper V1
08-05-2009, 11:42 PM
Target in Howell has SE on the Cycle, GS in the glider, Eel in the Wave Crusher and the AV in the Claw... I'm broke intil pay day so hopefully they are still there when I need them. So why am I posting this then :D ....

BlackDragon
08-06-2009, 12:20 AM
My Targets still suck ass buuuuuuuuuut Target in Paramus had a Crimson Neo viper and an eel. I took the crimson neo viper but left that butt ugly eel. God thats an aweful figure. Some ass hat beat me to the rest of them. I wish these stores would put out more cases.

Owner of a Lonely B.A.T.
08-06-2009, 12:49 AM
I have to agree I left SE behind because...well how many SE's do I need for gods sakes, and the Eel....take Deep Six and give him an Eel helmet...very lazy.

BlackDragon
08-07-2009, 03:49 AM
YES SCORE! I hit Walmart in Nutley tonight cuz my friend was looking for a birthday present. I never hit this Walmart cuz its a bit of a drive. They had like 15 Elite vipers and 2 Pit commandos. I took the Pit commandos and 2 Elite vipers. I'm thinkin of goin back for more Elite vipers. The best part is one of the pit commandos is the variant. I forgot about the variant and when i checked my bag sure enough one was it. Now i can't open them though. What are the odds that out of only 2 of them on the shelf one is the regular and one is a variant.

Owner of a Lonely B.A.T.
08-07-2009, 11:03 PM
Grabbed a regular Eel, at Target Menlo...meh, its okay et best. Not the exclusive which I have seen, and passed on as well.

There were no other new figures there, except Stormy unmasked.

TRU across from Woodbridge Center had nothing new, but are still amazing well stocked with their exclusive Firefly.

J.D.
08-09-2009, 05:21 PM
Walmart in Howell yesterday had pretty much nothing except the first 2 waves.
Target in Howell was the same. First 2 waves. No exclusives except the Rhino.
K-Mart in Howell had a ton of the 25th Combat Heroes and 2 Sharc's :lol
TRU in Freehold had pretty much just Wave's 1 and 2.
Walmart in Freehold, I hit the friggin jackpot. Flash, Helix, Stone, etc. Plus I snagged 4 Pit Commando's and 6 Crimson Neo-Vipers. I grabbed 1 Elite Viper, and left 4-5 of them on the pegs.

Viper V1
08-10-2009, 04:16 AM
Went to the Target in Howell and found the Helix Wave also. I didn't buy anything cause I already order them from online but I did buy the Rhino...

I went to 4 different Targets and no Snake Armors!!!! Really pissed off about that.
I have a question to ask you guys about the Night Adder figure. One of our fellow friends from here "TUGA VIPER" told me that their is another version of the figure and I was wondering if any of you here have heard about this and if I can get a confirmation on this as well before I loose my mind looking for this figure. Is their a Blue Tattoo version and a Black Tattoo version of this figure???

Owner of a Lonely B.A.T.
11-30-2009, 05:18 AM
I've heard that as well Vega, but I've neither seen pictures of the difference nor have I yet to actually FIND any figures from that wave, so I can exactly confirm it.

I did grab two Target Air Viper w/Jet Pack exclusives and one Wet Suit w/Dragon Fish @ Target Menlo I also checked 3 Targets and no Snake Armor.

Secaucus Walmart had a ton of new Marvel Universe figures. Picked up:

Warpath, Jean Grey, Sunfire, Vision

Saddle Brook Walmart had Battle Stations. Picked them up minus the LAW. They also had some shippers in the aisle filled with City Strike Snake Eyes, Red Fang ninjas, Night Adders, Charbroils, and Doctors. No Kamakuras. I guess he only comes in cases rather than shippers.

J.D.
06-28-2010, 01:54 PM
There's one on Rt. 9 in Howell

http://www.therecordstorenj.com/

There's another one in Manalapan, I forget the name offhand. It's in the same shopping center as Foodtown on Rt. 9 South. It used to be located inside the Freehold Raceway Mall.

Owner of a Lonely B.A.T.
06-28-2010, 03:35 PM
Oh hey I've been there! That's the comic store my buddy lives by there.

Is that one that used to be in Raceway Zapp!?

Owner of a Lonely B.A.T.
06-28-2010, 03:43 PM
http://www.zappcomics.com/html/location.html

Yes Zapp Comics.

I used to shop with them when they were in Old Bridge, but the jump to Freehold was too long of a trip for me there was a store closer in East Brunswick called MC Comics, which was a great shop until it got sold and expanded to twice the size (which seems like a great thing but the econemy started to tank and I don't think this new guy had a good idea of how to run a comic store), so he ended up downsizing the store back to its original size and sold it to someone else who REALLY had no idea how to run a comic store, and it closed.

The last owner was seriously aweful, I basically only collect Joe and TF books which should be and easy enough pull list, if it says GI Joe or Transformers hold it for me but every month I'd be missing books and when I asked where they were she'd respond, "Oh yeah I forgot to order a few books this month...we don't have that." To which I'd ask, "Well can you get it?" Followed by a hearty, "Oh no I can't order that."

Now I wish this even just applied to the few books I buy, but one dude was looking for the monthly X-Men and Avengers and Batman, and had the same problem. Those are basic books...how do you forget to order those?

My last trip there I asked her how long she expected people to come there when the one thing they come for comics, is not there? She said she was doing the best she could.

One month later it closed.

06-28-2010, 03:56 PM
I now go to a place in Milltown called Main Street Comics. Its a little out of my way but aside from one store in Colonia (more on that later) its the closest store to me.

The shop in Colonia is terrible...nothing is in ANY order...I mean that, you can go in and ask for the newest issue of a comic and he has NOOOOOOOOOO idea where it might even be. So you go and set out looking for it, and have to check the entire shop...and it doesn't end there. Its not like you check the store and find a pile of the issue in one spot...oh no, no, no. You MIGHT find one copy of that issue in a pile somewhere, another copy in a box, a third copy on the wall all of these mixed in randomly with 30 or 40 other comic titles.

I have no idea how that guy makes a living doing this...I spent a half hour in his store looking for (at the time) the latest issues of G.I. Joe and Transformers, and finally just gave up.

Yes, Zapp comics! That was the place I got my "Death of Superman" issue signed by the artist in the early 90's. I remember the line at the Freehold mall being enormous! lol

I don't doubt that...the one comic guy I met was Simon Furman (of Transformers fame) at the old Heros World when there was a Heros World in Woodbridge Center.

It was a crazy day like no one knew who he was so no one but me showed up to get any signatures (he signed the first issue of Death's Head and his first issue of US TF for me). He was really cool and since he had nothing better to do invited me to pull up a chair and hang out. I had come there on lunch from work, but couldn't miss the chance to hang out with Furman so I just blew the rest of the day off (I didn't have a cell phone then I just blew the rest of the day off no explaination) he was too cool, and we talked TF for like 3 hours I bought him lunch Chick-fil-a (he'd never had it before) until his time was up.

It would have been a perfect day...had I been sooooo excited to get in to see Simon that I locked my damn keys in the car...took me three more hours to get someone with a spare key to come out and let me into the car.

I think locking your keys in your car is a valid excuse to miss the rest of the day at work :shifty

Yeah that's the excuse I eventually gave, but so worth it to hang out with one of my writing heros.

The Record store is the place I go to but I'm havin problems with them just getting my comics. Every week I go in they never have my stuff. How freaken hard is it to grab 1 comic of each different cover of G.I. Joe. I was collecting all the Ultimate titles but was having problems getting them cause these guys would not put them in my box. So now I only get G.I.Joe and I still have the same problem with just 1 freaking title. Don't get me wrong the place is a great place to get comic books and to find them is easy but the young guys who work behind the counter sux. So that's why I looking for another place

I had a bad luck at Zapps comics when they were at Freehold mall. I notice the guy with red hair was always over charging me. One day I complained to him about it and 2 other guys heard me complaining about it and they pulled me aside and said that they too have had the same problem with him over charging and never said nothing. Every once in a while I would go there but ever since they moved to Manalapan I haven't been able to go cuz of the distant it takes for me to get there.

MC comics Wow I have been there like maybe 2 times LOL! What a mess that place was! Let's just say I passed on the place many times and didn't stop to look inside after the 2 times I went there.

I really miss the place I went to for like 10 years but since I moved further away it got harder to get there. Comic Plus in Ocean Township on RT. 36 Friendly, clean place to go to. I think I might just go back there

Got Skydive, Destro and Shadow Trakker at TRU in Hazlet today. No Low-Light :(


Check your TRU's cause this wave is coming out there before other stores.

Also they are running the 2 for 10.99 on GI Joe, MU and Star Wars.
