    Anyone seen this new Maul figure around our area yet?

    http://www.figures.com/databases/action.cgi?setup_file=ssnews2.setup&category=starwars&topic=26&show_article=234

    (ok I can't get the thing to work.. make sure you include the thing that's not linked, and if that doesn't work, look for it via http://www.sirstevesguide.com/ :p)

    (hope the link works... sorry if it doesn't.. it's the Maul Sith Apprentice, sculpted after one of his early designs for EP I.

    As far as new stuff.. anyone seen any of the new stuff that's been shipping? Just curious.. most of the stores I hit just stink (like they don't bother to get any figures in anymore.. grrrr)

    Thanks in advance...

    Just as long as they shortpack that one and make plenty of the others, I'll be okay [face_mischief]

    LOL.. as long as *I* get that one I don't care how many go out :) As far as the others, I'm not holding my breath. I was honestly surprised to find Porkins.. <sighs>

    They never seem to get in much around here :( Blah.. either that or I just have crap luck getting out there in time.. d'oh!!!!

    Anyone else have crappy luck w/ the stores in their area getting in a decent selection of the new things when they come out?

    Well, I'm almost 2 years into my Wal-Mart boycott, so that significantly cuts down my chances of finding the new figs . . . .

    I haven't seen them in the stores yet. They supposedly just shipped last week. I've been having better luck at Targets than place else these days. I still get most of my figures on E-bay or Amazon auctions.

    Thanks for the info, Stone. I'll have to join up although a lot of times if the sightings are on that side o' the metroplex, I'll probably end up having to wait :( blah.. sometimes I hate the area I live in <sighs>

    Anyway.. thnx for the info.. I'll try to get over there and visit the site.

    I just had one of the figures in my hand today. It was at the Wal-Mart off of 75 and Midpark (just north of 635). I left two on the pegs there.

    If you're on the other side of the metroplex, I always had good luck at I-30 and Eastchase.

    Or if you join the wookie benders, you can ask someone to pick up an extra for you. :D
