    Great idea for a topic! :)

    Anyway, I have been having problems finding the newer figures around here recently. It seems that stores around here are stuck with the older figures and have no room for the new lines. Like at Wal-Mart last night, they had tons of 12" figures, but were clean out of the basic line. I hope this changes because I'm looking forward to the trash compactor two-packs coming out soon.

    Also, a heads up: Kay-Bee Toys at the Berkshire Mall has a huge bin full of Saga figures. They have all the really rare ones including the two Yodas and Dooku.(which of course, I picked up :) )

    yeah i went to the wal-mart in temple the other day and they had almost no regular figures, they did have the trash compactor ones though. I almost bought them, but decided i'd wait a little while.

    The one in Temple had them, you say? I have to go check that out. :)

    I was at the one in Ephrata last night and it was a waste of my time.

    Another item I'm getting interested in is the new Action Fleet collection. I bought the Falcon, snowspeeder, and AT-AT so far and the detail on them is fantastic!

    Do u open your figures and action fleet or do u keep them in the boxes. I used to open my figures but now i keep them in the box and put them on the wall.

    I keep 'em closed, but they usually get lost during sometime of my room, if it's messed up or clean (I call them 'ages' ;) ) well, never mind my room though :p

    I keep all of my action figures in the package, with the exception of the 12" line. I like to "set them free" so to speak. The only figures that are out of the card are the ones I got when I was younger and played with. Altogether, I have around 230 action figures.

    I open the action fleet collection because they come with a nice display stand and they're just too beautiful to keep in the box.

    yeah i've got about 50-60 action figures, i also have a few vehicles, and i got the geonosian battle arena for x-mas. Only about 15 of my figgures are in the case because i just started keeping them in the case about 2 months ago, before i opened them up and displayed them.

    Sounds like a good place to get figures, unfortunatally I'm not really into action figures of people, I like the ships much better.

    Grr...I really need to get to that Wal-Mart in Temple. That's the only Wal-Mart around this area that has the newer figures so far. I was at the one in Exeter Saturday night, and they had squat.

    Here's a new proposal:

    What do you guys say about posting pics of your collection in this thread? Sound like a good idea?

    Too bad you don't have a digi-cam. The batteries just went dead in mine. But, as soon as I get new ones, I'll post my pics up in here.

    Hmm, I'm not sure where exactly that one is. All I know is the stores around here better start getting the new waves in or I'm gonna go insane.

    this must be my lucky week, i went to the wal-mart in temple and found a Count Dooku, the hard one to find. I also saw a couple of the new figures(mace and also the analyzing droids from the jedi temple) but dodn't buy any because i didn't have much cash with me,

    Ahhh...Count Dooku...I remember I went crazy in the store when I found him. It was quite funny, actually.

    I forgot something...I actually got lucky last week. I found the saga Rebel Fleet Trooper and Imperial Officer. Those were the only lucky finds I had for a while.

    I found an awesome deal at Kay Bee in the berkshire mall this past weekend. I found the silver aniversay scenes( Han+Chewie and Luke+Leia) for $2.50 a piece!! usually they are $20 a piece. I tried to find the Vader+Obi-wan one but they didn't have it.
