    Not expecting anything....but I stopped in at some stores on the way home from work yesterday....picked up Shadow Trooper at the Target in Crestwood....didn't need them but found a holographic Emperor at the TRU in Orland ....nothing else there...

    Then I found one holographic Aayla...sitting in a wrong place at the Target in Orland...they had no Shadow Troopers left...BUT did have a whole crapload of the Lava Reflection Obi-Wan and Anakin....and my last stop was at Wal-Mart in Orland...and I was able to find a R4-P17.....

    Someone at work also gave me one of those Best Buy lithographs....
    all in all....not too bad....
    I am having a difficult time lately keeping up with the "Exclusives"....I don't go to Rebelscum (don't have the time)...so I hear about a lot of this stuff from you guys....thanks..btw...

    all right guys, here's the skinny on the new burger king toys and watches. the toys are out and can be purchased seperately for .99 at some select stores (crestwood). as for the watches, they are coming out in waves. right now is wave one which is episode 1 darth maul/obi wan and episode 4 luke/stormtrooper. my guess is that the next wave will be ep2 and ep5 followed by ep3 and ep6. but that is ONLY A GUESS. i was lucky enough to get my little hands on the ep1 and ep4 watches, spinning anakin and.... get ready.... the hard to find "talking darth vader". as found on rebelscum the darth vader from the last toy release and this one are very hard to find, being called "chaser toys", because people are chasing after them. if anyone is interested, i know the secret on how to get your own "talking darth vader".

    I still have an extra Vader/Anakin from the previous run...if anyone needs one yet...

    and...I got two steps closer to finishing my "gotta have em all" 3 3/4 figures collection....they had one holographic Plo-Koon and one #65 Tactical Ops Clone trooper at the new Target on Harlem/80th ave...I felt pretty lucky to get one of each of those....

    so...I am missing only the #68 Wookiee Heavy Gunner....after that...I am only going to collect the very special 3 3/4....

    schph, i thought i saw the wookie heavey gunner at walmart in orland a week ago, but i may have been mistaken. i am ging over there today, i will check for you. if i find it i will let you know asap. has anyone heard any feedback on the target collector coin they gave with the dvd? i was just wondering if people were still looking for those or if no one rally cares. i thought it was pretty cool.

    sweet! gotta keep my eyes open for the spud trooper. finally saw the Darth Tater on the shelves here in CA...at a Ralph's (grocery store) of all places.

    I am in need of one Star Cases (or whoever) action figure case to hold my silver TRU darth vader, which is sitting exposed in my closet and making me nervous. Please PM if you can help me out.

    y'all need to head out texxun's way for an event and have dinner/games at celebration station. i remember that place as the bee's knees, even well into my late teens. they always had a great selection of games along with the skeeball, kiddie rides, etc. and the creepiest dual-level robotic entertainment evar.

    Well for anyone who is lookin for em, I found the kidnapping of the twins from their rightful father today, way out in Belvidere, IL at the Wal mart, they had a bunch on the shelves, but I had limited funds and didnt have my lists with me.

    Pretty decent set though, dig the new packaging, although Bail looks a little, I dont know, strange

    Funny though, luke is bald and Leia has a full head of hair

    4.77 at walmart per
