    those are all pretty much peg warmers at my local walmart.

    In my area, just about all of the figures are becoming pegwarmers in most stores. The royal guards are not hard to find. The only ones that seem elusive are Yoda and Dooku, both of which I already have. Also, any of the new releases take a while to show up here.

    Ki-Adi is the same as the Phantom Menace one he just has a bendable arm. Not worth the wait you'll find him, not to many kids are beggin' there moms for this freak!

    I didn't want to start a whole new thread, necessarily, so I decided to dig this old one up, to post my thoughts (Cut & pasted from my post @ the Fresno, CA FanForce board):
    ---------------------------------------------


    I have wanted to bring this up on the board here for quite some time, but I am noticing that the figs and vehicles are virtually at a stand-still here in the Valley. I have checked all the stores in Merced that sell SW "toys" regularly:

    KB Toys
    Target
    Wal-Dirt
    TRU


    I haven't seen a new shipment of product hit the pegs here in Merced for MONTHS. The last "new wave" shipment I saw was the Ki-Adi and Teemto wave. KB got a shipment of said wave about 1 1/2-2 months ago. We have yet to see the Tatooine Anakin (The fig I want the most currently), Ephant Mon, or even the Gunship here in Merced! To make matters worse, I have been to Modesto, Turlock, Ceres, and Manteca recently, and have found nothing in any of those cities, either. The trend I've noticed is that there are a substantial number of pegwarmers chilling on the pegs.

    Other thoughts on this? Are the statements of Episode II product not being overproduced all just lies? ?[face_plain]

    Hey, Jirin,
    Do you think all the new figs are stuck on one of those ships still waiting to unload along the West Coast? What a nightmare!

    I still hope to find the Clone Pilot, but no luck so far....

    Luminari Unduli, and Taunwe are the only two i dont have from the atoc run. I suggest the small version of walmarts, not the megalithic open all night variety but the small ones. I live in central missouri and was in eldon in particular. There i found every figure but the ones listed above, and the red gaurd. Kaybee toys has the red gaurd and lots of them. But honestly, its the small walmarts that have everyhting, especially figures. When i walked out with twenty hard to find figs they told me couldnt sell the things. So thats where i have had my most success. Hope that helps!

    Deluxe Yoda & 3PO!! I haven't seen either yet! [face_plain]
    I also missed Teemto & Lott Dodd the Only time I saw Newest Wave because I couldn't afford to buy the WHOLE Wave! [face_laugh] And I needed 3 Clone Piots! :)
