    geez, you guys are lucky...mine won't even ship until the 5th! of course, if i do find them in stores before then, i'll buy them. i'm going to check the harbison area tomorrow, so maybe i'll have some luck there.

    I think all of Columbia's shipment went to Simpsonville! I found them all today--if anyone needs any Wookiee warriors, I swear Wal-Mart and Target have 30 between the both of them. I don't think I'm going to have a Wookiee army--clones will have to do. Just waiting for the Starfighter now.

    That Star Fighter looks great...oh, hey, don't forget, Amazon.com is releasing several EP3 vehicles on Feb.8

    Yeah, I'm kind of skeptical about those vehicles actually being released that day, except for Anakin's starfighter, which does look awesome indeed. Much better than the one from the Clone Wars line.

    The Wal-Mart down here in West Columbia will be having that two day event thing--anyone heard anything about the upstate walmarts yet? I don't want to have to come down here 2 days during the weekend.

    Also, everyone see the Target exclusive Vader? Looks pretty sweet.

    Yeah, saw it and was underwhelmed.

    The Dorman Wal-Mart has the signs up for it...although the SPG TRU isn't doing MM. The Greenville one is though.

    Yeah, I saw that about MM at TRU (yay for abbreviation). Can I assume I'll see you there taking all the figures with army-building potential? :)

    Was there ever any doubt? I found the Wheel Bike in Asheville this past Sunday, held off on it though.

    What say ya'll we have our March meeting on the evening of April 1st? (Yeah, yeah, it's technically April) We could do dinner and then go to MM.

    That actually sounds like a pretty good idea. Name a place and time and I'll be there.

    Do you think the Holographic Yoda is going to be part of this promotion?

    Hey guys. I can't make anyhitng like that :( 501st commitment on Gastonia that day. However as I understand it...Woodruff Rd Wally-World is suppose to have a tent event and a 48 hours of the Force promo. My info may be wrong but I don't think so. Gastonia is also suppose to have it as well. Just an FYI for yas. Any chance we can get together on April 3 for lunch to discuss what all we find?

    So where are you going Friday night DSF? I'm thinking about going to Wal-mart either in Greenville or Spartanburg because their prices will be lower and the TRU Holographic Yoda isn't coming out until the 10th.

    I was considering the Dorman Center Wal-Mart, since they're 24 hours (I think) and I went to the old location for the last one. If the Westside Target is open at Midnight I may pop over there too.

    What's your email so we can discuss the situation further?

    Dorman Wal-Mart has the Trivial Pursuit SW Saga game, with Episode III footage.

    They also have the starter set for the ROTS Wizards Card game.

    According to Hasbro's site, both Spartanburg Wal-Marts are taking part in the Midnight Madness sales, so looks like I'll hit them.

    time to revive this thread, i think.

    found a clone commander, palpatine (#35, red saber), and clone pilot today

    still seeking an AT-TE gunner, and I think figures 41-44 were "released" this week (which means we'll see them about september...lol).

    Lucked up on the AT-TE gunner at the Dorman center wal-mart close to 2 weeks ago,there was only one,sad to say.But I was in Bi-Lo this weekend and was checking out the Pepsi/Star Wars display(those r2-d2 drink coolers rock!)Anyway......Bi-Lo had a small stand and figures...mostly the first 2 waves,but for anyone still seeking an Imperial Guard,that might be the ticket.

    Over the past 3 weeks I've seen waves with the #41 Clone everywhere, including a lucky score of 1 two weeks ago from Saturday at the Harbison Target. Keep your eyes peeled!

    Yeah, the 41 clones have hit hard, everywhere. Found the remnants of the newest Deluxe Wave this past week at Target in Greenville (no clones, no stass allie, which are the two coolest ones).

    Haven't seen anything past 44, but I know the Tarkin wave is looming out there somewhere.
