    Hi, I'm new here. Where I live, I can't seem to find anything but pegwarming basic figures at my local stores. (Wal-Mart, Target, etc.) All thery seem to have is CW Anakin and Obi-Wan, and Saga Ledgends and Legacy figures like Tiin and the Malakiki. I am really annoyed that these figures are keeping new figures (that I really want!) off the shelf. Is anyone else having the same problem?! [face_frustrated]

    It's the same in my local shops. Now that this season of Clone Wars has ended I expect things will die down figure wise until closer to Xmas.

    I really have found that the Clone War figures haven't sold as well as the movie figures. I buy only what I like and I really don't like the series

    I like the Clone Wars TV series (not the movie toon) but the figure line is flooded with Anakins and ObiWans. Mainly I think the line it self flooded the SW market.

    None of the interesting characters in Clone seem to make it to figures.
    At least our WalMart marked them down to 4.50 so some were sold down, mostly troopers though.

    I bought the first Captain Rex figure as I liked him. I have more figures from the original Clone Wars series than I have from this version.

    The thing I hate about the Clone Wars line are the oversized guns and other "action accesories". They just look really out of place to me.

    I had the same problem when I always wen't to my local K-mart. They would always have either boring figures I won't want to buy or figures I already have. So instead, I just head over to my local comic-book/trading card game store which sell a bunch of brand new figures and vintage stuff always in stock.

    Unfortunately I don't have that option unless I want to trek to London. If there's a figure I really want I usually end up getting it online.

    The only pegwarmers i am seeing at my Walmart is Plo-koon (Legacy style) and Clone wars Anakin. Figures aren't showing up at all. Oh well I guess they are waiting for the new stuff at the end of July or beginning of August.

    Was in my local Entertainer store yesterday. Lots of Cad Banes warming the pegs.

    I wen't to my local K-mart today, and saw a bunch of Padme and Bail Organa figures.

    People seem to not like politicians in Star Wars.[face_laugh]

    Well, it looks like the new waves have arrived here. I like the 30th aniversary packaging for the ESB figures. Really, a nice move. Wish they'd done the same 3 years ago. If I was still buying figures, I'd have swooped in and bought a couple extra of each.

    Don't seem to like them much in Real Life either.

    Where I live, all my stores EVER have are peg warmers ... I'm one of "those people" that you find scouring through every peg of action figures looking for that rare diamond in the rough.
