    This Monday night Toys R Us will have midnight openings for AotC stuff.

    Target alreadys has the preview figures and stationary.

    BIGW has the sabers for Anakin and Dooku, AotC Mini Puzzles, AotC Lego and new figures.

    Tickets for AotC can be ordered through inscifi.net for $13.50.

    Stationary ?

    Now there's something I can afford!


    :D



    (SPOILERS)

    Actually, I went to the local Toyworld, and they had a pretty sad collection there. They had preview figures of Jango, Zam, and a Clone Trooper ... and TWO LOTR figures ...

    sheesh

    Darth Dagsy,

    I picked up the Super Battle Droid at BigW. They had heaps of them and the sabers and mini puzzles. I also picked up the Lego Coruscant Chase set (which is FANTASTIC!).

    Target only has the preview figures.

    I went to Tarjay (Target) today.

    NO SW.

    NO LOTR.

    All they had was E2 and Jango Fett pencil cases!


    grrrrrrrrrrr


    Anyone seen any Palps figures? Classic or prequel, no matter...

    I feel your pain, Oz, I really do.

    Maybe after the big opening at Toys R us, other shops will be able to bring stuff out?

    Hasbro threatened stores with legal action if they brought stuff out before the 23rd.

    Seeing as this is the AotC thread, I'd just like to say that I got a mention for contributing to a TFN article about Connections (my alias is Taan Ronar, for anyone wondering - what? You're not? Bugger off then :p ). Nothing more important than that, I was just proud of it. :D

    What a cool night. Posters of the EpII Collections were available to.

    Big thank-you and a "well done" to the two NSW Fan Force members at the Penrith store. They did a great job.

    The Ozhaggis Report: Newcastle


    AOTC book available at Collins, Charlestown Square. Can't find it anywhere else.

    Tarjay (Target): seems to have stuff, but still unpacked at lunchtime Tuesday. Bad form.

    Toys-R-Us: reasonable selection. Was impressed until I went elsewhere. I guess they might be a bit ravaged after the midnight sale though.

    K-Mart (Garden City + Charlestown): Surprisingly, the best collection of stuff I came across. They had everything. The figures, the lego, the pens and pencils, notebooks, models, t-shirts, lightsabers. Everything. Had the best selection of figures, too.


    But I still have NOT seen any Palpatine or Sidious figures. Anyone help me out there? Do they even exist?

    And no I don't count the little tiny blue jelly-baby that comes with the Tyrannus figure.


    By the way, can you believe they're putting out spoiler figures?

    Edit: Sorry Oz, no spoilers.

    I went to the Moore Park midnight thing, people went nuts and Igot the poster freebie and we came home with Leggo.

    The figures weren't that great.

    I went back to the Kmart, Target and Toys r us at Parra today to get a Dooku lightsabre.

    Nothing at Kmart and Target. TrU, had ONE sabre, a green jedi one, and it wasnt a lightup/noisy one, just a plain boring one.

    If you guys EVER want to buy toys, DO NOT GO TO PARRAMATTA. Its sucks royally up there.

    Thanks Ko...but Penrith is a little out of my way.

    I went to Castle towers today. The target was worthless, and the Kmart had only the cheap generic sabres without the noises and lights.

    I'll keep looking...
