    I've heard of a few people roaming around on these boards that have scored (#33) Clone Commander and (#34) Clone Pilot and (#35) , but I was just over at EBay and was noticing that people were trying to sell some even after #'s 35. I noticed that (#36)"Exploding Body" General Grievous was up for auction many times, and the guy who was selling it said he bought it at a store. Also saw #'s 37 through #40, Vader's Medical Droid, AT-TE Gunner, Polis Massan, and Mas Amedda respectively.

    Anyways, are these people getting earlies from other people that they know that might have some kind of in? Or are these actually out there you just have to search hard for them? Please let me know if anyone has any info, that way I know to be looking for them. Thanks so much. Later

    I purchased #33,34,35, and 36 at Krogers in Ohio...so they are out there. They weren't in great numbers
    (as expected for grocery stores), but they were part of totally different assortments than what the major toy retailers seem to have received.

    I found them all at the Wal-Mart near me (Brandon.FL) around midnight on Saturday (24 hours after the madness). Got 2x Clone Pilot and Commander, one Vader Droid and one AT TE gunner.

    Oh well, I guess I have to keep searching. I did a tour of Wal-Mart, Target, and Toys 'R Us closest to my house this morning, still nothing. But later today I'm gonna be out in a few towns further away from my house where they have a Target, and two different Wal-Marts. So I'll give those a try and see what happens. I guess I have to just keep the hunt going. Thanks for letting me know that they are out there. Later

    I know that the pilot and commander are out there. At Midnight madness, a little boy maybe 7 grabbed them and ask his dad if he could have them. I was bummed that i didnt get one, but I'm glad he did. I probably wouold have gave them to him anyway. I remember being that age and this is what its all about anyway.

    It amazes me that there are so many figures out right now, but somehow people, and maybe not even collector's, just seem to know which ones to grab. They are abviously the cooler looking ones, but damnit, leave those for the people that would really appreciate them....Like me! I'm going to a few more stores tonight so there's still a chance.

    I picked up 2 Clone Commanders and 2 Clone Pilots at Toys R Us on April 2nd. I almost had Palpatine #35, but some lady grabbed him. Then she tried to grab one of my Commanders out of my hands! Animals.
    I ended up giving one of my Pilots to a "line buddy" I kept running into. I opened my 2nd Clone Commander. When you guys get this one, he's sweet! A nice addition to my Clone Army!
    It's nice to get these higher number figures ahead of time, but it's kind of silly too. They'll be out in a couple of weeks and none of my hunting on the first day will mean anything! :p

    Thanks Zappa_0 for rubbing it in. Damn! I hit three Wal-Marts, two Targets, one Toys'R Us, and two of them I returned to later in the day just to look again, and still nada! Still no #'s 33-40. Although, I have noticed that some of the supplies are getting kinda low so hopefully they'll be re-stocking soon. It's hard to tell when they get their shipments though and when they actually finally put the stuff out. Man, all these trips are killing me, and my wallet from all the gas. Later

    P.S. If anyone has any recommendations please let me know.

    Cloudcity.com has the clone commander, exploding grevious and I belive Palpatine in aswell for $10.00. So if you wanna pay alittle more then thats the way to go. I have dealt alot with cloudcity in the past, they are a good source of those hard to find figures.

    I read that it comes out sometime in July or August, but I am sure it will be out before that.

    I went to Target yesterday to look for these. I saw a guy there looking through the figures at the end of the aisle, so I went down the aisle and looked at the ones there and planned to check the end once he was done.

    As I was looking, he came down the aisle and picked up a small pile of figures that I hadn't noticed. I looked over to see what he mananged to find, sure enough I saw the Clone Commander. Then as he walked by, I saw Grievous #36. I asked if there were any more and he said he took the last ones. I'm not sure if he managed to get all 33-40, or if he had doubles.

    But I wish I had gotten there 5 minutes earlier. I fear that may be the closest I get to those figures for a while.

    I just got back from walmart and I found clone commander #33 and General Grievous (Exploding body) #36. I also picked up a blue royal guard, so now all I am missing is a red guard.

    I'm afraid that I will have a hard time finding anything above #32 at my local Walmart. I live in a small town and the Star Wars pegs are full of Battle Droids, Super Battle Droids, R2, C-3PO and 8 of each figure. It will be a long time before they clear that glut out.

    I was at both Wal-Mart & TRU for Midnight Madness runs (Not simultaneously, obviously ;) ), and also at Target on Sunday. I saw nothing past #36, the Grievous w/Exploding Body.

    Wow...I'd love to get my hands on that Palpy and also that exploding General. Any word on when Tarkin will be released?

    I'm having a hell of a time finding the Clones in my area (Southern California). :(
