    Yeah, I know what poster you're talking about, it also has a Darth Maul, Padme (pilot), Ki Adi Mundi, and Teemto.

    That's great that you found all those, I still need to get my hands on a Djas Puhr. As for the others you've mentioned, I haven't seen them anywhere, if they've been released, yet.

    There is a sort of hard to find Obi-Wan Kenobi lightsaber out there as well.

    Just asking, but does anyone have an extra one or know where I can get one. I got the last anakin lightsaber at the kbtoys in southtown. They still had quite a few dooku's left.

    Hey everyone, The Ft.Union walmart had about 10-15 of each Palpatine, Djas Puhr, Endor Soldier, Qui-Gon Jinn, Orn Free Ta. I also found the Obi wan Lightsaber at the Murray TRU. This was last night about 6:00 so I don't know how the selection will be now.

    Good Luck

    I scowered 2 toys r us's and 2 walmarts today. Lots of endor Soldiers, but no palpatine. Picked up a Qui-gon. I am semi-dissapointed in the figure. Really want obi pilot. They have a new padme and Anakin figure under toys r us web page.

    The anakin comes with a gaffi stick, and a Tusken Rifle. Padme is dressed in pilot uniform comes with deflector dish.

    Check um out. They are on page 3 of the action figures page of the toys r us star wars store.

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll check it out today.

    I, too, found the Qui-Gon a bit disappointing. The face looks really bad and it doesn't have very good articulation, but it's a nice figure to just sit there... I guess.

    I haven't had much luck finding another Obi-Wan lightsaber. I picked mine up about 2 weeks ago at the Murray TRU, they had two there and I snagged one. I haven't seen one since. There are Dooku lightsabers everywhere, and Anakin's is usually pretty easy to find. Good luck, I'll let you know if I spot one.

    These are the first deluxe figs that I have purchased because they are just that cool. In fact I waited to buy Anakin until this very sculpt. It is great and well worth it. Buy the nexu for your Arena scenes!

    Unless you keep em the box....bleechhh.

    It's all good though.

    Just got back from TRU in Murray, they had the 12 inch Jango Fett, looks pretty cool. The Wal-Mart on Redwood had deluxe Anakin and Nexu.

    Still no Palpy, Han, Chewie, Puhr, or Obi-Wan, though.

    Well I opened up the Deluxe Anakin and the Nexu this weekend to play with my son. The Anakin....uh...yeah. I like the sculpt better than the rest of the Justin Timberlake-esque figures, but the articulation is HORRIBLE. He can't even move his arms up. LAME. I needed to fanagle my break apart geonosian warrior in order for him (her? :) ) to stay in one piece, put once I got it to fit perfectly all was well. The nexu on the other hand is just fun and a nice addition to any collection.

    Now...if I could only track down Puhr and the gang.

    BTW, my friend picked up Han Endor Raid and Obi Wan Starfighter Pilot at KB Toys last week. I talked to the 3 managers of all 3 KBs in SLC and they said, "yessiree we had em. Gone in 2 hours." Hasbro themselves dropped off one case each. If you know the assortments you know that it will be frustrating to find Han and Chewie. As they pack one per case. D'OH! Let's hear it for Hasbro as they continually assist the scalpers around the globe!

    Remember, if you make ANY finds and their are some left on the shelf, Post it for us here on this board!

    Happy hunting my friends.

    I found Palpatine at Sugarhouse TRU a week ago. Check on fridays, that is the shipment day. They will even check the pegs for you if you are nice.

    I found Chewbacca at Kay Bee in Sandy. They had him at all 3 KB's this morning.

    He'll show up soon enough, look at the onslaught of Lukes and Vaders....

    Yeah - it was cool to meet the Count! Still looking for the Palpatine, Das, and Chewie. BTW did ya'll see the new Momaw Nadon?!?!?! Looks GREAT!!! Looks like they will do like 3 more aliens from the cantina scene and you will be able to hook them all together, SWEET! Also the new Luke Landspeeder looks pretty good. At $20 for a OT vehicle and a pack in fig I might have to cash in on this one!

    Hey Everyone, Last night I picked up the Darth Maul and Jango Fett Unleashed figures at the Sandy Walmart, they had about 5 Jango's and 4 Darth Mauls left.
    Also if anyone is looking for orn free taa, Massiff wave try the west jordan Fred Meyer store off of 9000 S Redwood Rd, they have several end caps filled facing the back wall where you can't see them unless you really look. They also had the Bespin Luke with metal peg and flesh colored peg in stock. If you are looking for the play skool stompin wampa and fast through the forest sets, the south towne JC Penny has about 20 of each for
    $7.99. They also had the other 2 but were slightly more money.

    Good Luck
