    It is too late for me son. Strong with the dark side have I become. I am too far away from the Snail to make frequent trips to it.
    I will wait 2 more weeks and then buy the
    entire wave online if we do not see any Canadian figures by then. I already have the
    Jango final battle and Orn free Ta. I got them online for 8.99 US just after EPII came
    out. If I knew we would not have seen any new figures by now I would have bought them
    all. Oh well....

    eXtreme, huh? Umm.....why?

    I thought in the same way as Duker...perhaps the Plastic side of the Force....or the Hasbro side of the Force....

    Or we could just stick with the Crazy side of the force. Seems like Duker is replying a lot on this....perhaps we can persuade him leaving the Lush and joining the crazy side since he needs new toys to boot.

    Maybe we'll slip him some Vina or some .5 beer and he won't know the difference.

    Born drunk, huh....40 proof amniotic fluid?


    Back to the crazy side of things, reports that several Zellers in Ottawa have received the Saga Bespin Luke, Vader, Mace GR, and Jango FB.

    And in Hamilton, some Zellers have received the Orn Free Taa wave.

    As Aakin was strong with the force young, I am strong in the Lush young.

    No as for toys, well as I am to the Lush, I am crazy to the toys, unfortunately I have as eyt to seriously start collecitng saving up for numerous activities this summer. So just post the rarest I should watch for.

    In the meantime excuse em while I play with my jedi Starfighter.

    Is that in the area you work, or the area where you live?

    I went to a couple of Zellers today (centrepoint and also to bridlewood) and they had squat.

    Perhaps I should go check out the west side again.

    went to the SS today. sorry dain no bespin luke. doh.

    a good place to try is the cedarbrae mall..some good stuff there as there is both a TRU and a large zellers (when ep1 was out i picked up a bunch of cool stuff from that zellers)

    Bridlewood mall never has anything. But if you make the trip, check out the hamburger stand. yum :)

    I never find anything at Cederbrae. Actually, kinda sucks.

    As for EP1, I was there for the midnight madness at Zellers but because of the overstocking due to EP1 figures, they've cut down in the amount of SW figures for EP2.

    TRU...well, just another typical TRU...nothing special there ever.

    As for the Snail, I wouldn't think there would be the Luke available today since new shipments come on Wednesday. Tuesdays should have the least amount of stuff in any given day of the week.

    From my experience for EP2, it's always been the Zellers in Mississauga that I've found the good stuff.

    Best place is the Zellers on Dundas just east of the 427. I found Dooku, Yoda and Anakin HD where no where else had them.

    Hey CrazyDad,

    Are you near to the Zellers and 427 and Dundas, or Kipling and Queensway?
    Those are usually where your CrazySon finds the most stuff.

    I am my son but I am usually in too many meetings to have time to check them out.
    Do you live in this area...


    ******* I just got you a Bespin Luke *******


    I will have it in my hands by next week if
    you do not come across one by then and it
    was about $10

    So now just where did you procure this Bespin Luke if all the Zellers in our remote little backwater are barren wastelands?

    (And they are! I could scream when I go into our local Zellers and see piles of Max Steel, DigiPoke and ****** Wing Q and the Starwars pegs are bare.

    HELLO!!! THIS STUFF SOLD OUT IN A DAY!!! HELLO!!! ORDER MORE AND YOU WILL MAKE MONEY!!!
    ORDER MORE AND I WON'T SHOP AT YOUR COMPETITION!!!!)

    Suffice is to say, on the whole should Walmart be allowed to build in Burlington, I've got one issue.

    Not much better for Lego while i'm on the rant.

    Oh, and Darth Surly, write me!

    DAD!

    You got me the Bespin Luke!!! Yay, too bad I live so fricken far away from you...kekekeke.

    I asked about those Zellers because when I was in the area (mississauga), i found some good stuff there.

    I actually live in Markham, dear old dad. Not sure if I'll have time to trek all the way to the west side this week. You gunna be in the east side anytime soon?
