    I agree, a Royal Guard and Obi-Wan Unleashed would be awesome as well, I read somewhere that there will be a General Grievous Unleashed made for EP3. I FINALLY picked up a couple Clone Wars General Grievous' tonight, I have been looking everywhere for them, scored 2 at the local Wal-Mart. I opened one of them and and keeping the other on the card.

    I went to the Wal-Mart in Gastonia last week and saw the repackaged Dooku but I did not have enough to get it. I went back there tonigh and they still had it so I picked it up. They also have Bossk, the Tusken Raider and Ayla Secura. Anyone need one let me know, I'll try to pick it up...

    Everyone keep an eye open for the Sneak Preview Episode 3 figures, they are due out the beginning of Febuary but some people are already finding them in stores, the Grievous will be mine!

    Anyone find anything good lately? I have not had a chance to hit the stores in a few days. Still waiting to receive my red Unleashed Clone Trooper. I'm also waiting on a Micro Machines Star Wars Action Fleet X-Wing Fighter. I am trying to collect a couple of x-wings, y-wings, tie fighters and a tie advanced. The ceiling in my home office is on an angle so in one of the corners I am going to attach those ships to some fishing line and attach that to the ceiling, having the tie's chasing the x and y-wings. I should look pretty cool. I'll take some pictures when I'm done...

    Yeah, I bet that will look very cool, I have thought about doing something similar as well. I havent had much time to hit the stores either in several days, funds have been low to. I will be out shopping some this weekend I am sure, so I will keep an eye open for anything good and report back, I am still looking for an Unleashed Mace for you as well.

    Ok, thanks 311...

    Hey, I just won the Micro Machines Action Fleet Vader's Tie Fighter on e-bay. Mint in the box, for $15.50. The shipping is high though, $9.91 because he is using UPS. So my total is about $25. About the same I would have normally paid, Vader's Tie can get kinda pricey sometimes...

    I'll have to check out the new exclusives. I loved the 2 new Darth Vader [face_coffee] mugs.

    I found the preview figures at Wal-Mart in W-S this morning. No Starfighter though.

    My previous 2 shopstarwars.com orders should be arriving today. Holo Emperor, Sith Bust ups and Stormtrooper bust ups. :D

    TK, Welcome to the Ward.

    Yes, StarWarsShop.com had some awesome items. The only thing I have ordered so far was the Exclusive 3-D Poster Card, it is sweet, plus they only made 2500 of them, so I jumped on that one right away. I have got to get me one of those Darth Taters, too funny!

    Picked up another Clone Wars Grievous and a VOTC Darth Vader last night at the Wal-Mart on Battleground Ave. Also, Target right down the road had 2 out of 3 of the new Unleashed figures: IG-88 and Aurra Sing, I am still hunting for the Stormtrooper, I will be searching Winston-Salem later today.

    I was the Madison Kmart just a few days ago and, of course, they still had NOTHING EP3 related! Why dont they just give up and close already, lol.

    Does anyone else here buy the AFA Graded figures? I own several AFA graded figures, thats usually all I will buy off of Ebay unless its a figure I plan on opening to display, then the condition of the card doesnt really matter.

    I just recently bought a AFA graded Clone Wars General Grievous and and looking to buy a graded Sneak Preview Grievous very soon. Also, keeping an eye open for Darth Tater and Anakin's Jedi Starfighter.

    hell if I know, Triad just isn't that lucky for stuff like that.

    Found Aurra Sing Unleashed finally at Wal-Mart in W-S. Still need the other 2.

    I have seen more and more reports of ROTS figures being found in stores all over the country, I am keeping my eyes open, but I doubt we are that lucky. I did see some ROTS Rice Krispie treats with a Cookie Jar offer at Lowes Foods though.
