    Over the weekend, I was at the Wal-Mart over behind Wynnsong theater in Winston and they had Anakin's Jedi Starfighter for $19.96, and back in the automotive section they had a stand with all kinds of new Star Wars air fresheners and keychains.

    Went grocery shopping at the Bi-Lo near my Apt. off of Battleground Ave. in Greensboro last night and found a few things. They had the ROTS Cheez-Its, Rice Krispie Treats and Eggo Waffles for sale.

    Very serious, I will email you a pic of it if you want, they are too funny. There is a M&M Jedi and M-peror. You get them with 2 UPC codes and a small fee or something like that. PM your email address if you want to see it.

    Here is the Master List for the Toys R Us stores that will be opening at midnight for the EP3 toy release. You may have already seen it. Looks like the TRU's in Greensboro and Winston are participating, not sure which one yet, but I will be at one of them.

    I followed up on what I was told by Stardog, and checked out the Food Lion and Winn-Dixie here in Madison while on my lunchbreak. Food Lion had several cereals with Star Wars related boxes, Frosted Flakes with the light-up Saber Spoon. Winn Dixie only had Corn Pops with the light-up Saber Spoon inside.

    Get to BestBuy.com as soon as you can, they have an Exclusive Master Replicas ROTS Palpatine Mini Saber on sale for $35.00. They only made 3000 of them, and every store is not going to be recieving them according to Rebelscum.com. I ordered mine this morning.

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=1099393182864&type=product&isLogout=true&DPSLogout=true

    Edit: These are the Dark Chrome Version, like the Obi-Wan Exclusive. Look out for the Gold Chase Sabers.

    My Sidious Mini saber has been shipped and will arrive this week...Awesome! I didnt have much luck over the weekend as far as any new figures, I looked at several places. I did pick up another Vader, Grievous and Clone Trooper, also an Obi-Wan and Anakin, most likely for openers. I did look at the Master Replica FX sabers, but I didnt get one yet, figured I better make the Jeep payment first, STUPID ADULT RESPONSIBILITIES!!!!! I am STILL looking for an Unleashed Stormtrooper, looks like I might have to turn to Ebay to get one.

    Recieved my Best Buy Exclusive Master Replicas Darth Sidious Mini-saber yesterday! Its very cool, I would still like the original version, but the dark chrome is rather unique, I am glad that I managed to get one. Anyone else collect the mini-sabers? I only have 3 so far: Obi-Wan EP2, Luke ROTJ and Darth Sidious EP3.

    Hello there, I live in Greensboro. When hunting for my Star Wars fix, I usually go to Wal-Mart, Target and Toys R Us to pick any new items. I usually have pretty good luck out of all those places, except for a few items I am still looking for like an Unleashed Stormtrooper.

    Picked up a couple new figures last night at the Target on Lawndale in Greensboro. I got #35 Palpatine (red-saber) and a #36 Exploding Grievous. I am searching for any new clones (Clone Commander, Pilot, AT-TE Gunner ect.)

    i found the clone commander last saturday when i was at target, but, as you know, NOT the target exclusive clone. wah.

    but the clone commander is SWEET. hands down, one of the best figs. i hope he comes back soon, cos i might want to get another one.
