    I have been able to find the exclusives so far...but I cannot find any of the regular release figures! There has been nothing new on the pegs for months, except for Leia and Motti which I snared at Walmart. I wish the new stuff would come out!

    Hey guys, heard the news?? eek.gif
    The TRU in Denver, the one on Colorado Blvd. is closing. Yes, I saw the sign on the store today. I could not believe it! The building has been purchased by Best Buy. So there goes another source for SW figures, but at least the other TRUs are still open.
    Not that they have anything new yet.

    Last night I found myself having another Jedi dream. It may have been that past year and half I've been reading nothing but star wars novels watching movies, and reading webpages.

    What have been some of your funniest/greatest star wars dreams?

    The one last night, I was fighting darth maul type character (his son I think, who could remove his 'make up') over a young child named Jedioah (child of the jedi - or so obi-wan version 2.0 (aka old lol) told me. In this dream, I cut the head off off Mini-Maul, but felt very sad that I had to do it. I was also wounded, and felt the pain (Hate those dreams, once dreamt I was shot with a phaser from star trek, just because I was trying to save a kitten!)

    Okay I admit, I'm weird, but I'm sure there are others out there. What do your nights hold in the world of the force.

    This has nothing to do with Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. That is what this forum is for. This belongs in 'Star Wars Miscellaneous'.

    I'm moving it there now.

    Whoops.
    Should have been more clear. I did mean
    Phantom menace type dreams (as that is what my dream was about)

    Since it's here though, might as well open it up to any jedi dreams.

    I had a REALLY weird Ep. 1 dream about the forbidden romance between Qui-Gon and Padme. confused.gif Here's my report, written the morning after: <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Geneva,Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>A Star Wars dream. In this one, Qui-Gon wakes up suddenly in the middle of the night and exclaims, "Padme," like he's worried about her. He goes out and finds her entering a big, temple-like building (this must have been on Naboo.) They talk for a while - I think he told her he loved her - and then a bunch of people show up, including some aliens who look half-Bith, half-Sullustan ( confused.gif ). The alien group tells them - I think - how ridiculous their love is.
    Go figure...

    My favorite was when I was going to act in the Star Wars movie--ep 2! I was going to be a great female Jedi and fight someone like Darth Vader or Maul! NEATO!!!! I was psyched, and then...I woke up.
    Oh, well, that would be what dreams are for!

    Once I had a dream that I was a Jedi, and I was battling Darth Maul outside my hometown. And I had six more dreams, and they all had the Jedi Council in them. And another time, I had a dream that I was at my cousin's house (Jedi Knight Rei Hino), and her next door neighbor's house was haunted or something like that. So when they left for a trip, we decided to get rid of whatever is in there, and I brought a real lightsaber that I owned to use as a flashlight. I also did think about the JC in that one.

    I can't really remember how things got started, all I remember is how it ended. I was a young jedi knight and I was part of a team of other young jedi, at least three others. I was the only one not injured in some way and we were being pursued by darth maul. We were working our way down some complex by way of stairs and shafts. We finally made it to the bottom and was in this basement like place in water up to our knees. We were close to escape but the dark jedi was closer. Someone had to stay behind and fend him off so the others could get away. Being the only healthy one I told the others to go on ahead. I stood alone in the dark with my light saber in hand. He emereged from the entry way and had the same look he had when he faced Obi Wan and Qui Gon face to face.(cant really explain any other way) He ignighted his red lightsaber, one blade only, and I did the same to my blue one. We looked at each other for a second then we leaped at each other. I don't remember much of the duel especially the death blow except for being tired. I was standing over his floating body light saber in hand. The saber slipped from my hand and cut off. I didn't feel good about what I had done even though I had won. All I felt was some kind of loss. Maybe it was innocence or something. Then I woke up sweating.

    Hey fellow CO collectors, what is up? Long time collector and JC browser, first time poster so be kind fellow jedi brothers. I have 46 Episode 1 figs and just got TC-14 and R2-B1 today at Target, that place rocks, its where I get most of my figs.

Chewirulz I got to give you props on starting this topic, I've enjoyed it for a long time and finally decided to get my feet JC feet wet on this topic. Well I'm out. CO SW fans rule!

    Great dreams.

    I know that I have never been a fan of darth maul. He destroyed my favorite Jedi, how could I like him. Since my dream where I battled him (or his son, I am not quite sure as it changed from person to person) I have had this URGE to learn more about darth maul. Just finished reading his journal which really did not help much.

    Last night I dreamt about aracnids. Closest thing to it was Jedi knights meet starship troopers.

    I have a ton of these active dreams. I live a very non active life. I sure do wish I could be out there doing the moves, things I do in the dreams.

    Only one other SW dreams comes to mind right now. I was meeting obi-wan and qui-gon. It was a very short dream, and nothing much but meeting them, but it's clear as day in my mind.

    Thanks to all who have shared so far :)

    Thanks Darth Stang! I met up w/my Jedi Brother Big E this weekend. He gave me a Boba Fett Epic Force Statue. Too cool. I owe ya one (or more) Big E. I have seen nothing new although I am headed to Kansas City in a couple of weeks. If I drive, I'll check out all the Walmarts along the way. Wot does everyone think of the guy they cast for Anakin? He's an unknown ( I was hoping for Ryan Phillipe) but if GL sez it's ok, then it's cool w/me.

    WOT UP COLORADO!?!!!

    Hello everyone,
    I found the Obi-Wan and Maul 2 pack at the Super K-Mart on Arapahoe Rd in Aurora. They had plenty and were just under $15. Other than that I havent seen a thing, I was lucky enough to get a Skiff while I was back home in Iowa, I had a gut feeling I would never see on at a Target here. I have also seen the AAT Tank at the TRU on Mississippi and 225, I didnt get one, but a guy walking behind me bought 2 out of 3 that were on the shelf.
    Happy hunting!

    Wuz up? I'm with you on the casting of Anakin Chewirulz, if it's good enough for the man George, it's good enough for me. Target rules, I picked up a skiff and a wide TPM and my film scene was Yoda, NICE! Anybody got their Wuher from the Insider yet? Mines on backorder. I can't believe it's been just over a year since the Celebration, as Obiwatson pointed out a little while ago. Man, me and my boys had a great time. Why can't everyday be a Celebration? I am out!

    Glad to see this noble forum again. I have not found much new since the release of all those old Freeze-Frame figs - that was awesome. I'm looking for Sio Bibble now. Anyone seen him. Welcome, Darth Stang!
