    oh yea toy hunting, it can be most frustrating up here in ft collins. i know i have competeion as well, because i see the same 2 guys at all the stores that i frequent. i hit both walmarts here, target, toys r us, shop co, and kmart...the kmart here says they will not order any sw until the ep2 line comes out. target here has rebel troopers, imperial troops, fx-7, and queen in royal decoy, they are selling for 6.99 they also have delux amannaman, and leia w/ sail barge cannon for 14.99, shop co has the same 3 jar jars for over a month, and toys r us looks like they are getting ready for the new line. both walmarts here as of march 1st claim they will not purchase any more of the potj line, they have already put up the racks for ep 2 the price tag stickers say "6.49 episode 2 basic figure" so in other words ft collins really doesnt have much....are there any sw stores down there in denver??? and i saw a post here saying someone is looking for obi wans, well i have 2 obi wan jedi young super short saber variations from potj..jawa site has them in their price guide valued at $80...i also have 4- r2-q5 w/ "imperal" sp error...we should start a trading board...well maybe there is one already..i havnt looked yet....

    I just sent off for my last two Jedi and a Yoda in Council Chair. $20 for the lot, + shipping. I probably paid too much, but I hated not having the whole set of Jedi.

    After TPM came out I went hunting several times a week. I usually keep an eye on eBay to see when new figures come out. California and Florida always get the new stuff first for some reason so there is always some scalper selling them on eBay. Once I see the new stuff on eBay I start going toy hunting every other day until I find the new toys. I haven't done much hunting over the last year because it is impossible to find the new figs. There aren't too many stores that sell them ans when they do they don't have many so they never have any left when I get there. Now that AOTC is coming out I'll be hunting more frequently.

    dont get to excited it was 20 big ones but it is cool looking. they even put a little work into the fig the hair on it is actualy a redish brown just like obiwans is in the movies. not a bright red or brown he looks like a hippie .and the box does have some spoilers as well as the book too.

    At southwest plaza at Suncoast, they had 5 Aurra Sing's, 5 Qui Gon Jinn (wearing some weird black suit) and 5 Darth Maul's wearing that ugly brown jacket. The EB Games had some Bacta Tank Luke, Mechanic Chewie, Boss Nass, and that's about it. Didn't go to KB Toys, I guess I should've. And About going for a case with you, Chunk... I'll have to think about it, but it sounds enticing >:)

    I'd be willing to buy the Zam off of you. I'm kinda out of the shopping game for a while (broke my arm last weekend).
