    During my trek last night to find figures for the kids (they're not on sale at Toys R Us and Target's selection sucked), I managed to find and pick up a couple of figures. They are a Luke Skywalker with a removeable hand and a Han Solo with throwing/punching action. They're probably fairly old, but I didn't have them and I thought they were cool. I don't have pics of them yet and I can't find anything about them online, sorry.

    I am about ready to get the R2-D2 droid and the Yoda lego statue. And I really want the lego Rebel Blockade Runner and Star Destroyer (I just need a place to set them up :))

    SRB, thanks for the 'Heads-Up!' on the Silver R2....




    "Help me, Obi-Wan!"

    I looked around (yet again!) for a Clone Pilot, and no luck. They had a million Episode 2 Jar-Jars -- why doesn't Hasbro make more of the figures we ACTUALLY WANT! (like the Clone Pilot?) Of course, there is 2 pages of them on eBuy (e - for 'evil'?), but don't want to go that route if I can help it.

    If anyone sees some, or has one to spare, please PM me. Thanks!

    PEACE,
    Kaui-Gone-Jim

    To my knowledge as long as they have the Silver R2 to give away with the 20.00 purchase the promotion will continue to run.

    Hmmm, maybe I have to ask for it? I spent about $30 buying some figures (I picked up the Clone Pilot and Lott Dodd and a few extra Jango Pilots for photo referencing on my site) and they never mentioned anything about the silver R2. If you're all looking for figures, I've found that the Toys R Us next to South Coast Plaza really has a nice selection. I visit them about once a week.

    Good luck SRB! I saw a set of 3 Clone pilots for sale on ebuy (seller in Chino Hills!) -- but I had to pass. But that is an option: some of us going in on a deal like that and splitting the cost?

    Are Unleashed Padme and Anikin still available in stores, anyone? I looked at the pix of them (again) and they are starting to say "Buy us!"

    As the captain said in Das Boot, "Good hunting!"

    Sorry SRB, I wasn't able to find one in time.

    As for the Padme and anakin released, I've actually got the Padme one (bought a few weeks ago at the Toys R Us near South Coast Plaza) and I saw the Anakin one at the Main Place Mall's Kay-B-toys.

    The Force was definitely with me Sunday.
    After the excellent meeting, I went to the Fullerton TRU and found Unleashed Padme and Anakin. Snapped them up and got the Silver R2 to boot!

    "Oh, Thank the Maker!" :D (3PO in ANH)

    I went to Toys R Us today, at Edinger and Goldenwest. they have a ton of Gunships, and Arena(I bought this!) play sets. Most of the new figures, but no ephant or Clone pilot :(

    They were out of the dvds when i went at 12:30. booo.

    I found a Padme' Unleashed!!!!!!!!!! Unfortunately, there was only one, adn i snagged it. sorry all! :p

    Also, all TRU's sw legos are 25% with the cupon that's available at the door. I finally picked up the cloud city twin-pod cloud car. :)

    When I was there for the dvd (see the "It's out!" thread), the Toys R Us by South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa had TONS of Anakin, Vader, and Padme Unleashed. They also have a bunch of Silver R2s left from what I heard (I bought a Vader Unleashed and a second Padme Unleashed to open :-D so I got the R2).

    I'm still looking for Elefant Mon (sp) and that Pod RAcer Guy (his name escapes me).

    OK, SC Plaza is like 15 mins from my house. Where is the toys r us there??? I need to know this. I really want vader unleashed.

    As for Teemto Palgilia (sp?)The pod racer, i saw his at the TRU at goldenwest and Edinger today. That's not too far away, probably for you. And they still have a bunch of R2s, if you want more.

    i went to my target today (Brookhurst and Adams) and they had the Gunship! And the Arena, and Interactive Artoo, but that's the only new stuff. everything else is old. I did finally get the Dooku/Yoda speeder bike set, adn WOW are the figures awesome! Yoda is spetacular and Dook even has a curved handle for his light saber! A very cool lego set to have.

    (Non sw.... I also got LOTR Special edition, $25 at Target, and the Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets Soundtrack, which came out today, and is awesome, just like all William's stuff. :) )

    The Toys R Us is right across the street from SCP. It's in the big shopping center at Bristol and MacArthur Blvd. All you need to do is go into the shopping center somewhere near the Washington Mutual at the corner of MacArthur and Bristol. Then, just drive towards SCP through the shopping center. About half way down, you'll suddenly see it next to a Big 5 Sporting Goods.

    I put together this map, hope it helps!

    Oh, and I picked up the Teemlo or whatever pod racer guy from the Tustin Market Place TRU (my local one). I'm still looking for Elefant Mon. I'll compile a list of the figure numbers I'm still hunting for later tonight. If you can't find the Vader Unleashed, let me know.

    OK who wants to go to make a Frank and Son's run on Saturday? I have some work to get done on my truck and get it registered, but that should be done by 12. So anyone want to go out there with me? I'm only going because I know they will have Ephant Mon and Clone Trooper pilots.
