    I didn't get one. And I hope it's not the rarest. It's the one I want the most :(

    I got one when I was at Walmart when they opened at 6am. Even being one the few first people in the store, he was already rare. There was only like 10 of us there and he was a rarity. I got him though. He's gotta be the rarest one by far. In one Wal-mart I couldn't find any Yodas, in another, he was a peg-warmer.

    I saw like 10-15 of them at my TRU. Hardly any AOTC toys were taken. All I got was a Dooku saber!

    I went to four different places and couldn't find Dooku or any Royal Guards, two of the figures I wanted the most.

    Oh well, Maul was hard to find in the beginning as well, and now I still find him at some stores. Lets hope it's just people gobbling up the villain on the first day and Dooku will start popping up more in the weeks to come.

    No Dooku or Yoda. Hopefully later this week I'll find one hanging on a peg. Not that I need to spend anymore money after midnight madness :)

    Yes the Guards are hard but they appeal so much to the collector, they might have been in surplus this morning. I found one on the back of the "HIDDEN" rack in my TRU. Guess I'm lucky. Now Dooku is nowhere! I have a strong feeling that he will stay rare, I know hes a pretty main character, but I think his deluxe makes up for the norm fig. Jango will be the really hot bad guy. Now the figure I think is the rarest is the Luminara. I only saw her picture!

    I couldn't find Dooku or Yoda anywhere today. I'm thinking that there just weren't that many of them to start off with...
    For those of you who picked up the Yoda fig, what is the deal with his accessory? I've only seen pics of it, but what is it and what does it do?

    I got both Dooku and Yoda :)
    I'm assuming you're talking about the accessory thing that Yoda is standing on. If you twist the base, it "appears" that Yoda is levitating. The thing that his "force action" is holding is a removable chunk off of that base.

    Thanks YodaJeff,
    I was wondering about that...
    And I'm guessing that Yoda levitates while fighting in the movie.

    Now I'm confused, is there a Dooku figure out now? Or is everyone just talking about the Darth Tyranus figure? I got one of those, but I didn't see any Dooku, Yoda or Imperial Guard figs.

    I gave up and bid $20 on Yoda with a Royal Guard on ebay. Now I need Dooku and that really skinny one. And a clone trooper. And a Zam Wessel. Damn, I got nothing rare today.

    At the local TRU it seems to be quite the opposite. Dooku's were abundant, the rarest were nikto and dexster.

    I got one! Plus a royal guard. I think that the case they were packed in will be a tought one to find for a couple weeks till supply catches up with demand.

    My local Super Walmart (Bryan, TX) had quite a few of Dooku. Also had quite a few of the Royal Guards. The store has a lot of stock but I don't think that there is that many people buying them. So there is still some hanging on the pegs. I went there three times in the last 20 hrs today and they had all of the 27 figures every time. I guess I am lucky since there is not much demand here. I wish all of you who were missing figs could just appear over here and get what you needed. Good luck all. They will show up. - - keep the hope alive.

    Dooku is the rarest. At the Walmart I went to Midnight for, he was packed only ina certain case. It was two to a case and he was alternating with Jango. I hope that makes sense.

    But at my TRU, they had lots because they put all of their stock out. What wouldn't fit on shelves was in bins.

    Um..dude go to ebay, click on search type Count Dooku..people got him :)

    Not me though :( Went to like 7 stores in the chicago area..so far no one in the chicago force room that i know of has gotten one..some dude that i was talking to at walmart said that he was left out of the batches that were shipped to our area and other figures were left out of other batches in other areas of the country..

    what are you all having a hard time finding? Let me know..(in my best Darth Siduous voice.. " I WANT DOOKU!!" Maybe a trade is in works... email me VIkingmike84@aol.com.
    May the force be with U!!
