    Hey everyone. I'm new to the boards. Anyways, I found Hanger Duel Anakin, and FINALLY Obi-Wan (took me a while). I saw a bunch of red guards yesterday at target. I just need to find Yoda and Dooko.

    Today I found:

    2 Luminara Undulis
    a ton of Mace windus, Dexters, Royal Guards, Final Battle Fetts, Taun Wes, etc. I still cant find Dooku or Yoda for the life of me.

    Again I urge all of you do not worry about those figures which are hard to find. yes there will be some that are always rare, but the Bespin Vader and Luke those will be around, They havent hit stores everywhere yet. And with stores still putting out earlier shipments full of the figures we all have already, itll be a while before they start appearing on store shelves.

    I still have yet to see the "Bespin Duel" Luke in any stores in my area. It is the only remaining fig I want of what is currently out in the Saga line. While I am getting semi-frustrated in my search, I will not resort to EBay or any other scalper-friendly method to get one. Just like with Dooku, and the other perceived "rare" figs, it will show up in plentiful quantities, eventually.

    I cannot find Palpy anywhere. I can find plenty Yodas, Dookus, Red Guard, etc. Even found lots of Bespin Luke and Vaders. The newest wave is now available at my local Walmart. Endor soldier, Han, Qui Gon, Massiff, Orn Free, and Chewie. I have to find a Palpatine. These figures are out there, there is no "hard to find" figures. Keep looking you will get what you want.

    Anyone in New York should try the new 'Forbidden Planet' store (call 212 473 1576).

    I've been going to the Glasgow one for years now and always find figures in abundance which aren't in any other stores.

    I saw an EpI Yoda once and got bloody Nute Gunray instead. I've been searching for the little green critter for 3 years now to no avail. :_|

    Forbidden Planet is the place to go for all those figures you can't find anywhere else.

    My local Zellers has tons of Count Dooku figures so I had no trouble finding him at all. I've only got four AOTC figures so far, Count Dooku, Luminara, Dexter, and hanger duel Anakin. Both Dooku and Anakin are a pain in the ass cause neither one can stand up on their own. Unlike the Luminara and Dexter figures that stand perfectly fine on their own.

    Thanks to TRU's latest shipment, I now have Palps and Djas Puhr. So I'm not having a tough time finding anyone. And since Ki Adi looks so much like the TPM AF, I don't even want to bother buying him.
