    hey everybody,

    I got a message from a friend who is a dept manager at a particular Store (I'm not gonna say where because I dont want him to get in trouble!) that the Toy dept. put out Episode II toys this evening!!!!!! They are already closed for the evening, But I am getting up REALLY early Wednesday morn to take a trip to go get mine. If anybody else wants any, post it before 6:30am and I will pick up what you need. (No, I'm not charging anything extra.....I'm no Scalper) but if ya want it shipped to you......it will be at my cost. Let me know.

    Man sith, I'd really like to know what place you're talking about. I'm not sure what I'd like, I'd love to go to the store myself and see what's there. Can you tell me what town the store is in? I just wanna know if it's close to me.

    BTW, I have an extra set of the preview figures if anyone wants them. Someone got them for me. But, I already got them through the help of MuttandSolo's post. She got them for about 29 bucks. If anyone wants them, I can bring them to the next meeting or send them if they pay for shipping.

    As a fluke stroke of luck, I got the Jedi Starfighter from the Walmart in California, MD. It was the only thing on the shelves, so the stores must have their stock already and its being "accidentally" leaked to the shelves.

    I was at Walmart in Abingdon yesterday. They had all the preview figures, but that was it. Now are you talking about Wave 1 figures?

    Yes, I am talking wave one....and I bought 2 cases! It includes: Anakin, Obi-Wan, Sexy Padme, Kit Fisto, R2-D2, C-3PO, Super Battle Droid, and Jengo Fett. I got an extra case (minus Obi-Wan) if anybody wants it. The Walmart I was heading to HAD BOTH collections, but had already pulled them from the shelves before I got there. Now I did find Wave #1 at another Walmart on the way. A friend actually got a Boba Fett to the register before the manager ran up and started pulling things down.

    Wow, this is cool. If anyone finds these figures, post where you're finding them so others get a chance.

    Thanks Sapient. I gotta check if the stores around me have them. Abingdon is a ways from me. Today I'm gonna be pretty busy, but tomorrow I should have time to check the stores.

    Hey Mutt, thanks for checking your area. This is a good idea. Tomorrow I'll check my area, there are two Walmarts around here.

    I really don't have any money right now. At the very most, I could trade you my extra set of preview figures for some of the wave. The set cost around 29 bucks. So, I could get most of the wave from you and maybe pay the extra money for the rest.

    Dude, I wish I could help you out. But I already got ALL of the figures (except for 6 vintage figures) But I will probably have them for a while if the means become available.

    That's cool. I plan on having money by the 23rd, so I'll probably just buy them at the store.

    No problem man. If someone else doesnt want them before then.....I can simply just take them back to WallyWorld.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much folks. What you dont realize is that people on my side of the Bay Bridge are mainly idiots.
    Thats why the average WalMart Employee (all locals) are idiots, and cant read the BIG "DO NOT DISPLAY UNTIL APRIL 23rd" label on the boxes. However, I give people on YOUR side ALOT more credit......they are actually literate, and you guys may not see these figures until 4/23. So, if you really want these things......you'll probably have to come over to the shore.

    UPDATE!!! I guess Wal-marts are on to us!
    They now have it in their computer system (registers) that if a EpII toy is scanned, it now comes up as "not for sale until 4/23."
    Evidently my local Wallyworld (not the one I got mine at) has already been slapped with a fine.
