    I tried that, and all I got was a box with red X. :(

    My target has 12" for $13.98, on sale. My Target has Dooku, Zam, and the Super Battle Droid.

    Also, on Monday I saw the Anakin with speederbike and the dooku with the speederbike. They were $13 each, though, and the anakin figure looked HORRIBLE. I hope it was just that one they got, but I am not so sure. Anyways, I passed up buying them, and got Pokemon sapphire instead :) Oh, well. Just lettign you all know.

    I agree with your thoughts on the Anakin Speeder. The speeder it self was cool, but the figure was the worst I have seen. IF you were toplace the figure on the speeder it would look as if he were screaming in terror.

    suncoast video at the westminster mall at goldenwest & the 405fwy, has the 10" character collectibles for 25% off the regular price of 12.99.

    they have alot of jangos, mace and anakins.

    the k-b toys in the mall also had unleashed jangos and darth mauls for discounted price as well. and plenty of electronic anakin training sabers for 17.99 too.

    Just saw this on the TFN mainpage. KBtoys.com is taking preorders on the 2003 TIE Fighter

    http://www.kbtoys.com/genProduct.html/PID/2253719/ctid/17/ls/default

    It's got no battery compartment on the back and it doesn't even have a place to put batteries. According to the caption under the pic, battiers are N/A. How is this an improvement over the old one that makes sound? At least the redone Millenium Falcon had better sounds. I think I'll just hang on to my classic TIE.

    As far as I know, it's just like the POTF one, and not electronic.......

    Any 3 & 3/4 Aayla Secura's spotted in stores yet?

    BTW - I saw some TTT (in red box) figures at Phat Collectibles (Ball and Beach, Anhm). They had Aragorn, Galadriel, Legolas, etc.

    I have VERY good news for all of us 'in desperate mode' collectors! I talked to a TRU guy today who handles the boy toys department (SW & Etc). He said Hasbro has ordered a recall of the peg warmers asap, and as soon as all the TRU can send out the old figures, the new ones will arrive by the truckload! They have also priced the SW figures at $4.99 as a last ditch effort to get them out before they send what's left off. So, just wait a little longer! Our time has come finally!

    That is very good news, Britt! :p

    I turned on PBS and a kid had some vintage figs the toy expert (on Antiques Roadshow) looked over.
    There was most of them - Leia, Luke, etc.
    The one worth 100 bones was the rare blue snaggletooth (I've only seen the red one).
    Cool to see SW collecting on TV! :D

    Has the Aayla Secura figure been spotted in any local stores lately?
    (though, an Unleashed version is what I really wish for... :p )

    Dustin, you got that right on the tumbleweeds...

    Went to a Target friday, and every figure there was the same as 6 MONTHS AGO - Not a single new one in the bunch! :(
    Guess it's back to Frank and Son's for me...

    SRB - is EE reasonable?

    Jim,

    Yes EE is more than reasonable. Only thing with EE thoughis that you have to order by the case. They don't sell any loose figures. I case runss almost 80.00 , as right now they are having "sales". After it's all said and done you are spending the same when you figure in time and gas for everything and then the cost of each figure you get in the case.

    It's well worth it and I am a very happy collector! No more chasing around wasting my time or banging my head against the wall.

    :D

    I have to get the playskool Falcon now that I've seen it. Anybody know where they have it reasonably priced. I tried KB, they had it, but the playskool stuff is the only Star Wars stuff not on sale.

    Nice. A 12" Gamorrean gaurd is just what I've been waiting for. Is it going for the regular $20, like the rest of the 12"? Also, I still cannot wait for the Kitik-Keedikak figure. My holy Grail, and favorite alien in the OT.
