    You have sealed the fate of five hundred more retail Dookus.

    Did you expect that the Saga line would just quit shipping tomorrow?????

    You're going to feel really crappy when you find one at a retail outlet in the next few weeks....

    General Lando hold your head up be a soldier.
    Because this Jedi went the same route I bought Yoda and HD Anakin off of amoktime.com last week and received them on Wednesday. Also the same day got the last non-deluxe Count Dooku from my local Toys R Us.

    i've seen tons of red guard, but i don't need him since i still have the one from when I was a kid. No dooku's anywhere despite seeing tons of boba's, luminara's, yoda's, and plo's.

    I am having trouble with Anakin HD, Yoda and Count Dooku. They are the last three I need to get.

    I can't find Dooku, Anakin HD, or Yoda. But, I did find a non-deluxe Mace yesterday.

    I wasn't going to buy any of these toys until I saw the Royal Gaurd and I had to have it. Then I saw R2's flashing light and at the end of the 24th I had picked up basic Dooku, Royal Gaurd, Yoda, and R2... by the end of the week I have all but one of the released figures. You guessed it, Jar-Jar; not purposefully though, I mistakenly bought two Capt. Typhoo (sp?) and thought I had Jar-Jar. I don't think he'll be hard to find though :)

    Actually I even lucked out and got 14 figures with background cards! I'm on the look out for R2 and Dexter with background cards but I haven't been looking for em yet.

    Yoda is impossible (I almost killed the kid who just grabbed the last one at Wal-Mart!), I haven't found Luminara Unduli, Mace Windu, Count Dooku or the Bespin Darth and Luke. Yesterday I was pleased to find two rare ones at Wal-Mart, there was one hidden Royal Guard and a few Taun We's sitting out in the front to my delight.

    Have everyone except for new Qui-Gon, Darth Vader, and Luke. Mace Windu Geonosian Rescue, Anakin Hanger Duel, and Yoda were tough. Why does the Windu deluxe and the 12" have a cheesy grin?

    I cannot for the life of me find Dooku or Linari jedi.

    I even went and found a BRAND new shipment of SW characters today in which I got all the preview characters, but when I looked at all the new EP II characters no Dooku or Linari.

    I find it funny though. The night I went out and purchased most of the figures at Target and Walmart. I found plenty of Yoda's and only bought one, while I stocked up on clone troopers. Now I cannot find Yoda anywhere.

    Did you guys know that the clonetrooper in red has a error on it. Some of the pictures of the clones on the package have no red dots, yet some do on his chest. So check your figure, because if it's not there then you have a error. I bought 3 and one of them had that error.

    I was just at the TRU in my area and got the Bespin Duel Luke and Vader, a few other figures I needed as well as Mace (not the Deluxe one, but the regular one), Royal Guard, Taun We, and YODA!!

    I still have yet to find Dooku, I hope and pray they don't do what they did with Maul and flood the market with him and Yoda.

    Hey DarthPigFeet who is Linari?

    I've found all the ones that I want as well, Yes it has taken alot of work and patience but the key word there is patience. I have not resorted to buying anything from scalpers. Stay strong everyone. Stay away from the scalpers.

    If you can't find them in the store go to the offical fan club if your missing any. If they don't have them today go back tomarrow and and look. It is a good place to find the hard figures.

    My name is Kirk, I'm new to the boards, and im a 16 year old getting back into collecting.

    Anyway, the stores around here rarely restock the shelves. I gave in and picked up a Dooku and Luminara for 13.50 including shipping on ebay. Not bad, since the scalper is getting less than retail for them with shipping.

    Besides Dooku, I can't find Boba Fett (had him, but sold him to my package-opening friend after my, um, "financial issues"). Also, Everthing after Bespin Luke and Bespin Vader are no where, though a couple weeks ago I grabed just about the only Orn Free Taa and Endor Rebel Soldier I'd seen.

    I have quite a few of the rare figures, like Yoda, Dooku, Bloody Luke Bespin(off of ebay). I just can't find Taun We & Dex Jettster! The only place that sells SW merchandise in my area is Wal-Mart. I have to travel either 50 miles South or 75 miles North to get to a shopping mall, K-Bee, and TRU.

    Naturally, some of the most recent ones are hard to find in my area right now (e.g. Bespin Luke, Bespin Vader, Jango Final Duel, etc.). Prior to that, Yoda seems to be the difficult one. I've only seen him once in a store and that was back in April.

    On the plus side, I've seen Dooku and Anakin Hangar Duel three times this week in different stores, so they at least seem to be available when they used to be impossible to find.
