    Good news, There have been unconfirmed reports of a new wave of figures appearing Tuesday evening at Walmart: Orn Free Taa (Blue Senator), Qui-Gon Jinn (Jedi Master), Endor Rebel Trooper, Massif w/ Geonosian.

    I will try and confirm this....

    Went to wall mart yesterday.

    Was very disappointed, almost nothing. And I mean as in display space.

    Although it could be attributed to the fact this one will be moving within a year.

    No No, the sign should be "The Indifferent Store. Sometimes we are open, sometimes we are closed"

    Right next to "Apathy... oh who cares?" and "Heisenberg's"

    Man - your hosers get so ripped up there. Scored the Endor soldier tonight, and have Orn and Qui Gon waiting for my checkbook. (Boy - I hope WalMart doesn't get in a supply of Magic Marvin's drawing pads).

    Be patient Canadian padawans. Your time will come.

    Hey there double J, You guys are so lucky down there. By the time we get stuff up here it is old news.

    Hey DB, I think that the figures you mentioned will be out in the US until July or
    September. The reason I did not say August
    is due to the fact that the Clone Trooper, Republic Gunship Pilot, Destroyer Droid - Arena Battle, Jango Fett - Slave I Pilot, Lott Dodd, Neimoidian Senator, Watto - Mos Espa Junk Dealer and Tusken Raider with Massiff have a US release date of August 19, 2002--

    In either scenario, we are not going to see
    them in Wal Marts, Toys R Us, and Zellers
    for quite some time. Add 6-8 weeks to the US
    release dates to get ours. To be honest with you, I am about ready to give up on waiting for these figures to show up here ( as if I did with EP1 figures) and buy them a the snail, online, or with a little help from my US friends...

    I haven't been down to the Snail for awhile now... how much are they selling Ep2 figs for? ( I still haven't picked up TaunWe, Sen.Palp, Dooku, etc.!!)

    Hey Mike, where do you think I might be able to buy the Ep1 Plo Koon w/ the yellow sabre? I didn't even know it existed 'til Psiberian told me a few weeks ago. (Though I still hope they make an Ultimate PK someday :D )

    And what's up with this creepy Mace Windu bust? Is that supposed to be a battle-cry? It looks more like he's screaming in shock/horror/agony due to his suddenly-missing arms & lower-half.

    Hey Mike, are you talking about PK from EP1
    or EPII...

    Talking about the Ep1 line of toys... Psi showed me a pic of a PK figure holding a yellow sabre. Did it ever come-out? Was it a mail-away, or just a hard-to-find figure from a later wave?

    Nope, it's not a mail-away, since I bought it in TRU - It's just the Ep1 version of PK. He's in full Jedi robes and has a yellow lightsaber. I think it looks a lot better then the Ep2 figure. There was also a Sease Tinn figure released at the same time.

    As for the expression on that bust...Well, all I can say is have you seen the horrible expression on the face of the new MW figure? At least on the bust he has his eyes open! :p

    Man...I just want the Sage Bespin Luke so I can just sit back and wait for the Ki Adi Wave in the future. Guess I'll opt for the Snail option but they don't have it in this week....grrrrrr. Well, if anyone sees it at the Snail, please pm or post it here so I can run down and get one.
