    I must admit I've been slacking this week.
    Tonight I will go on a run, and report back tomorrow! I hope there's some new stuff out, the shelves have been so empty here!

    I've been doing most of my shopping on ebay, my newest addiction ;)

    Unfortunately in the past 24 hours I have become super sick. Sadly, there will be no updates from me for a while :(

    Mike, is there anything I should watch out for while vacationing in Mexico?
    I leave in a couple of days to Cancun and would love to pick up some SW stuff while I'm there.

    Hey all, I work at a Dollaram in London. Today, I was shocked to discover that we have received Episode 1 figures! These are the 3 inch figures with the commtech chips (and they still have their Toys 'R Us prices on them!).

    I bought all 7 different ones: Tatooine Padmé, Battle Padmé, Vallorum, Sidious, Senator Palpatine, Watto and Ric Olié.

    There aren't very many left now, and they are going fast. This is the second time I've found Ep 1 figures so cheap (I found them for one pound in England as well). I'm sure that other Dollaramas have them, so take a look in your area! Grab 'em before they're gone!

    I'm really excited about this new line up coming out. New characters bing made in the EU and then being brought into figures and such. Kinda feels like Shadows of the Empire again :)

    Wal-mart also had the cantina sets on sale for $2 a while ago, and before that $7. I didn't report them because it was posted on the Snowtroopers forum and I presumed you all went there. :)

    Hi All,

    I was at TRU (West End) yesterday and they have 2 interactive r2s!
    If anyone wants one...now is the time!
    They are probably version 1 though...I know they are coming out with version 2 but I'm not sure when.

    Happy Hunting!

    R2 V2.0 will not be out until at least late fall or winter. It may even be Spring 2004.

    So for all you C-3PO fans, there is a sweet deal at Coles/Smithbooks (whichever bookstore) up by the icerink at WestEd.
    This is what Danny found on sale in Nov/Dec last year...for those of you that saw it.

    Star Wars Masterpiece Edition: C-3PO, Tales of the Golden Droid on sale for $20-25. It is so worth it! Check it out on the Chapters website.

    Well I hadn't seen anything for quite some time until this past week...

    Winners has 12inch SW figures for $12.99!
    They are from 1997, the collection I fondly call the "green collection".

    I found one for sale on ebay, you can see a pic here

    I have seen AT-AT Driver, Han Solo, Snowtrooper, and Luke Skywalker!

    Stoked!

    Wow I just noticed this post Jawa Girl. I usually read all the threads out here and somehow missed this one. 12: figures at Winners for $12 what a deal. I wonder if I am too late.


    I am afraid to say that toy collecting in Canada is going from bad to worse. I have not seen a tri logo carded figure since last
    fall....
