    Taun We, and Luminara Unduli. As for Mace, I think only the Deluxe version is out as of yet, which is pretty common so far. Please correct me if I'm wrong, though. ^_^

    You are correct on the Mace. It's not out yet (add Bespin Luke and Bespin Darth). Taun, Geonosian, Royal, Luminari, Dooku, and Jettster are all hard to find. Why?

    There is collection 1, which consists of 6 different boxes with figure assortments. Collection two has 4 different boxes. So, we have 10 boxes total.

    If we had 1 each of all 10 boxes, there would be 132 characters. The 6 figs mentioned above would represent 12 characters, or 9%. Hence the shortage. Of course there might be specific boxes shipped to the retailer, so mileage will vary.

    Someone should start a regional location thread, IMHO, so that members in similar areas can set up trades.

    What's Bespin Darth? Does he have his hand up in the air to block shots, or something?

    It's the Bespin lightsaber duel. He has his left arm out just like he does when he asks Luke to join him.

    I haven't found Dexter or any other figs from that assortment.

    That Red Guard is unbelievably impossible to find. I only saw two at midnight, and some guy got away with both of them! :mad:

    I did see a bit of Dookus though, there were many left the last time I looked before I left Wal-Mart.

    Last night I went to three Wal Marts without seeing a single Royal Guard, and tonight I went back and watched them restock the shelves of one and just about every box had a Royal Guard in it, its crazy.

    Still no Dooku though. I think its just chance, eventually your store will get theirs out.

    My question is on the back of the Royal Guard, Luminara and Taun We, they show a picture of Qui Gon?!@ Has anyone seen a Qui Gon, why would he be shown on the package if he's not part of the collection, and has anyone seen Dooku on the back packaging of another figure?

    Qui Gon is soupposed to come out later, but I don't know why he is on the back, maybe hasbro is just teasing everyone. :p
    I only bought six figures, Jango, Boba, C-3PO, Luminara, Taun We, and Yoda, and Dooku isn't on the back of any of those.

    I don't think the non-delux Count Dooku was released on the 23rd. I 6th in line on the 23rd midnight maddness thing and no one found any Dooku figure. I bought 2 Yodas, 2Obi-Wans, 2Padme Amidalas. Plo Koon is the one hard to find in my area.

    I can't find Dooku ANYWHERE. My Wal-Mart (London, KY) has Royal Guards and Taun We's by the bucketloads. I got Luminara last night...can't find any Boba Fetts...they sold out of Obi-Wans'...

    ...it's a mess.

    Did not find a Dooku in Western MA either. I found it odd that the deluxe listed Dooku as "Darth Tyranus". Anyone know this before hand?

    I ended up only buying 8. Obi-Wan, Padme, Outland Anakin, Jango, Kit Fisto, Shaak Ti, R2, and 3PO.

    I'm actually kind of disapointed in the figures. Too posed, and gimmicky. I like the E1 style where you can pose them yourself with bendable elbows and stuff.

    Well, I did not find Mace, Plo, Nikto, Luminara, Yoda, Bespin Luke and Vader, or Hangar Anakin. I did, however, see some of the guys some of you can not, such as Dexter. But, I tried to limit my buying to just "major" characters.

    They are all out there.... all 27 figures. I think that some stores just haven't gotten to them yet. (esp. the walmarts)More are showing up as my Super walmart restocks it shelves. At MM there was a shortage of all these figures you are all talking about and by last night they had plenty of all of them. It may just take some time for them to show....my Walmart manager said that they just unpakced cases as they were in the back, so they didn't really try to make sure all of the figures were out. But he was cool enough to let us go thru them at MM so we found all of the figures. So they are out there.

    Dooku is in collection 1 wave 3 ratio 1 boxes at 2 per case.

    Most wal-marts didn't get to them because they started with what they got in first which was collection 1 waves 1 and 2, and collection 2 waves 1 and 2. Red Guard, Luminara, and Taun We are in collection 2 wave 3. This is why you may have had trouble with them.

    Be patient, be sure to check your wal-mart as often as you can. The figures are generally selling so they'll be restocking 2-3 cases per night. Eventually, they'll get to Dooku.

    Don't pay the scalper prices for him and eventually the scalpers will be left with dead stock.

    Can someone post the box numbers and numbers for each figure? I was at TRU today and they were putting out the boxes. If I would have known the box number I could have found the figs I wanted. Someone link me please.

    I went to three different Walmarts, and they each their own rare figures. I got Dooku at the first Walmart, a woman that worked there was opening boxes helping me find him. I was there when they opened at 6am. That Walmart didn't seem to have a lot of Yodas, but another Walmart had Yoda as a peg-warmer. So, try to check out other stores. What's rare at one place, could be falling off the shelves at another.

    Snap:

    Collection 1 cases are 84851***
    Collection 2 cases are 84861***

    Collection 1 cases:

    If it also says "wave 1" or "wv 1" then it's the basic 8 collection 1 figs: Anakin Peasant, 3P0, R2, Padme, SBD, Kit Fisto, Ob-Wan, Jango Fett.

    WV 2 should have those plus Clone Troopers and Zam Wessells...

    WV 3 adds Yoda, Anakin HD, and Dooku. But you only get Dooku in the ratio 1 cases. So it's collection 1, wave 3, ratio 1 that has Dooku. I've not seen any ratio 2 but ratios 3 and 4 don't have Dooku in them. They took those two out and put some wave 1 figs in his place.

    Collection 2 cases:

    WV 1 are Boba Fett, Plo Koon, Tusken Raiderette, Battle Droid, Shaak Ti, and Captain Typho.

    WV 2 consists of Nikto Jed2i, Saessee Tiin, Jar Jar Senator, Dexter Jetster, and Geonosian Warrior. They also have wv 1 battle droids...

    WV 3 adds Luminara Unduli, Royal Guard, and Taun We. They also feature figures from wvs 1 and 2.

    I didn't notice the ratios on those collection 2 cases as the stockpeople were dumping the cases into a shopping cart and putting them on the shelves from there...

    The people at Wal-mart and Toys R Us told me that the only Dooku they got was the deluxe version.
