    I found some collection 2 "Power of the Force" figs at Toys R Us on Slide, including Jedi Master Eeth Koth.
    Anyone know where there are any more Jedi Starfighters? I didn't have the checkbook on me when I saw them at TRU :(

    Has anyone gotten a clear answer from this TRU about the EpII toy release? Are they doing the midnight madness thing or what? No one that I've talked to on the phone there seems to know anything about it.

    Gah! I can't find Eeth Koth anywhere!

    As for midnight madness at TRU, I don't think Lubbock was on the list of stores participating...
    :(

    UPDATE!

    I just got back from TRU (Got my Eeth Koth FINALLY!). Their Episode II stuff will go on sale at 9:30 a.m., tomorrow. I'm going to get there sometime around 8:00 a.m., eat breakfast from McDonald's, and wait it out. I'm guessing the line (if there is one) won't be like it was for Episode I since it's on a weekday morning. Who knows... Anyone else planning on being there?

    I was able to get by TRU today during my lunch hour; the display is right in front of you as you go in the front doors. There didn't seem to be that much of a crowd, but there were definitely four or five fans buzzing around the display, picking out what to get first.
    The display featured figures, vehicles, lightsabers, gaming cards, and Legos, mostly from EpII, plus some of the stuff that has been out on the shelves for months (Bespin Guard, etc.)THere are some nifty features such as (magnetic) "force" power and lightsabers that consist of a hilt and removable blade.
    Fortunately for me, today is pay day, so I was able to grab several figures, a Jedi Starfighter, and a Coruscant speeder.
    woo-hoo!

    A note of caution, though---
    If you want to stay spoiler-free, I'd advise you stay well clear of this display at Toys R Us since all of the toys have info on the back that reveals a lot of what we will see in EpII.
