    Hey all, I'm starting this post to talk about toy collecting. Feel free to add your 2 cents.

    BTW I'm still looking for a Dexter Jettster and a Genosian Warrior, as Wal-Mart didn't have that case at midnight madness. :(

    I believe Skyra is looking for Count Dooku and Yoda.

    If any of you all see these rarities, let us know!!! Thanks! :)

    I think I saw some action figures at Hastings on Montgomery & Juan Tabo (very little supplies) but they have a few!

    In other observations, I picked up the preview figure of R3-T7 (The yellow R2 unit with the clear dome and blue lightning around him.) But has anybody seen this droid in the actual movie? I can't recall anywhere that this droid was shown.
    In the beginning I remember seeing a half of an R2 unit after the explosion, but I thought it was the wrong color. Can anyone verify this?

    Twilek, please please PLEASE leave any bootleg discussion off of the Albuquerque, NM board. I loathe bootlegs and their distributors, and I don't want us to get in trouble for 'illegal' activities. Take it to PM.

    I'm going to try and get:
    Padme
    Anakin

    I think the Wizards of the Coast website has many of the figure you all are looking for on sale.

    Orn Free Taa isn't out till the next wave. Along with Bespin Luke and Vader.
    Anyone have any idea when that wave hits the streets?

    I'm looking for Mace Windu.

    I was at the Toys 'R Us on the West Side (my side of town) by Cottonwood mall. They had several Count Dookus.

    ChromiumTHC, both of those waves are already out, though they're sparse because of a combination of earlier pegwarmers and scalpers. I found the Endor Rebel Soldier and Qui-Gon Jinn (both part of the Orn Free Taa wave) last week at WalMart on Wyoming and Academy, grabbed the Soldier, left Jinn.

    Damn you Leto, all making me go and spend more money! I went to the Wal-Mart On Eubanks and found the remnants of what the scalpers left a bent up Orn Free Taa, a Bent up Massif (Genosian Dog-thingee Trainer, A Qui Gonn and an Endor Soldier, all of which I had to pick up, for fear of never seeing them again.
    This was all at 2:00am mind you.
    Looks like they just put the stuff out too, as the figures I got were still half in the shipping boxes from hasbro.
    Still can't find Dex & Genosian though :(
    BTW didn't see any Dooku's or Yodas either.

    Scalpers are no fun. I'm going to run to Toys 'R' Us afterschool, and possibly to KBToys in the mall, and then I'll come home and check the Wizards of the Coast website for stuff. Wish me luck!

    HAH I found Dexter Jettster and the Geonosian Warrior at Wal-Mart a few minutes ago. I picked up the last Warrior but there were about 4 more Dex's.

    I was at Toys R Us by Cottonwood last Wednesday and they didn't have any Dooku's. Did you see them there since then?

    I saw them there on Saturday, Skyra.

    Oh,I'm an opener (unless the figure is worth something or looks better in the box) because I like to pose my figures. I'm not worried about resale all that much. I'm not making an investment. I'm buying the stuff for me! :)
