    Has anyone actually seen these things? I went to toys r us and kay bee toys and target and I can find no hint that they exist in the real world. Hasbro.com is no help at all, it just links me to sites that don't have them listed. e-bay has a ton of them but I want to play with them and I feel silly paying $40 for a toy that I'm gonna rip out of the box as soon as i get it.

    Has anyone seen these things in a store near them?? Or are they not all out yet in our area?

    Need the info. My mom and I were up until 2am last night trying to find them on amazon.com to no avail. HELP!

    I've also seen them at K-Mart on Route 40 (Baltimore National Pike). It's inside the MD beltway (695) about 2 or 3 miles on the right hand side, just behind a Metro Food Market.

    Best of luck!

    I have gotten them all but the X-wing Set. I found them at Wal-Mart Mt. Airy on April 23rd and at K-Mart on Route 40. Haven't seen the X-Wing tho.

    hm...sounds like I will have to go on an adventure. I hadn't seen them before until Celebration 2 and i wasn't going to pay some EVIL exhibitor's prices. I live in Laurel and I've visited our Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, and Kaybee toys. And all of them have told me no and looked at me like I was crazy when i asked if they had the figures. Good to know they exist.

    I guess I'll go to the Kmart sites and find the store phone numbers and call them up. Maybe they will still have a few stashed somewhere.

    I bonded with another Maryland fan today at Toys R Us, as we sifted through the action figures in search of a Yoda (he was there monday but sadly gone now). I got my Hangar Battle Anakin though :) And the stratego game!! (which hopefully makes more sense than the Life game....anyone else confused by that??)

    Thanks so much guys! If you see them anywhere else, please let me know!!!

    I'll try to grab a few next time I'm out at TRU. Although my wife has banned me from any toy store since I go crazy and buy stuff I don't really need there!! :D

    Thanks for the offer, but my mom and I broke down tonight and found a website with a pretty great deal on ALL the sets. So we ordered them (including the Falcon set that comes out soon). 6-8 weeks or so (so at least they will be around by Xmas!)

    Thanks to you all for your help in my search!

    Oh, just so you know the site was actionfigurexpress - there's prices were pretty good because they send out them out in bulk style.

    There is an X-Wing with figures and a Naboo Fighter with figures out now. Later, a Millenium Falcon is coming out.

    there's an X Wing playset, an Naboo fighter playset, a "Stompin Wampa" set, "fast through the forest" ROTJ set, and an episode II "Arena Battle" set. Millenium Falcon comes out in June or the Fall, I've seen a bunch of dates.

    if you go to actionfigurexpress.com and search there they have pics you can look at (but be careful, they are hard to resist!)

    [link=http://www.thejawa.com/toyfair2002/images/playschool-falcon.jpg]Millenium Falcon[/link]

    I hope they make a Slave I version. If it's from ESB, they could include Boba and Han in Carbonite. And if it's from AOTC, they could have Jango and kid Boba.

    There isn't an Episode II one, atleast yet. If you're referring to what I said in my previous post, I was just hoping.
