    my wife and i went back to kaybee and the new stuff was gone. she asked the dude there if it was all gone and he had a few in the back. i got Barris and picked up an extra Aayla. they also had the clone wars 3 pack of troops and one of the clone wars droids and the cloner (i cant remember his name ;P)
    i dont know if anyone collects these but they had a few of the arena playschool sets. the very little new stuff they had when i left was in the back part of the store, not the front display of 1.99 peg warmers.
    the guy there said that some guy came in a few days ago and bought 4 whole boxes of new figs grrr.
    apparently they hadnt seen this one or he would have bought it.
    i was hoping that when i went tonight they would have an extra Barriss or Aayla so i could get them and then hook some of you guys up (i would only ask for the 6 bucks that i paid :))
    ah well, i will still keep my eyes open. maybe next time....


    holy crap this is a long post, but i also have to ask....
    Does anyone know what happened to the Target on Preston Hwy?!!! the sign is gone and it is all boarded up. Did this just happen or am i just that much out of the loop on things? i used to always go there to shop for everything. i guess i will have to go a little farther down preston to Meijer now.

    The Target on Preston closed, because of the new Target behind Jefferson Mall just opened up. The new target is pretty nice.

    Man I dobt I will ever see any new stuff in the stores ever again.

    yes i love the padme figure. i only wish it had been out LAST august. it would have made a better wedding cake topper than arena padme, but i guess the huge gun she was holding made the cake pretty damn cool too :)

    Target at Bashford had the Clone Wars vehicles if anyone needs them. Jedi Starfighter (repaint), Rep. Gunship (repaint), and the Fed. Tanks....and empty pegs where figures were once hanging :(

    Kebco does have some pretty good deals. I wouldn't mind paying a $1 or so above retail to get some of the figures. Heck, even with shipping its a better deal than spending gas money driving all over looking for them!

    The Great Escape had a bunch of the newer figs today, but they wan't $15 a piece for them. No Vader though.

    I need Imperial Officers. I have the original POTJ version, but I'm missing the rest.
    I usually stop by Wal_mart on the way home and sometimes I get there at the right times, so I will keep you guys in mind. If everyone will list what they need I will make a list and take it with me on my runs. If I find any, they are yours at actual cost.

    That's what I did. Saves a lot of time and headaches. Costs more, but so far, I think it's been worth it.

    I have found my Secura and Offee up at Wizard World, one booth was only charging $6 for the new figures. The only figure I am looking for now is the new throne room Vader. If anyone is looking for any new figures let me know and I will keep an eye out for them.

    Aayla and Offee. Also the Sidious Unleashed.

    I have a tri-logo Offee that R2 donated to the group at the last meeting, but I'm going to give her away to someone in the group along with the books he donated. We'll have a raffle of some kind. (free of course).

    I was at KB today, and they are suppose to get a new shipment of stuff in on Saturday. There's a really friendly guy there that clues you in if you ask on what's in the shipment, if he knows. He said that lately they are shipping the pegwarmers. He thinks that they might be clearing out their inventory. Who knows. But, besides some of the later numbered action figures from 2002, there is nothing new there.
    At the Target on Westport Road, they had the Darth Vader lightsaber, the slightly repackeded jedi fighter and republic gunship, and a seperatists battleship... I can't remember which one... in my exictment of actucally seeing something NEW *and showing this by jumping up and down, you know, action figure shopping with me is really fun.... * I didn't catch which battle ship it was. It was the slightly tall one with the circular piece on the bottom. Their action figures, however, were missing, and there were no 12" inch figures, either. I have yet to find my second Padme wedding figure, because I want on in the box.

    At The Great Escape yesterday, they had the majority of the newer figures...at a price of course.They had the younglings, both packs including the one with Yoda, Flying R2, Snowtrooper, Hoth Han with blue coat, etc. for $14.95. They also had Secura, Offee, New Darth, New Luke, and a few others at $20.00. $14.95 use to be their high price, now there seems to be a new high and I'm not sure why.
    For those, like me, who don't have the silver Fett, the fan club will begin selling them at noon Sept. 2nd at $10.00 each for FC members. Just a little FYI for those who haven't heard. :)

    THe TRU's in the area are having their grand re-opening celebrations this weekend. I do not know if this means new figures or not. It might not hurt to check.

    I bought my wedding padme online... I paid something like 23$ for it. But, Padme is my favorite charecter of the entire star wars films, and besides the pastel dress, the wedding dress is my favorite costume. So I had to have one.
