    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?

    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...
