    I noticed Teebo and Eeth Koth mentioned above. When I went to Ohio last spring they had tons of them falling off the shelves at the TRU in Dayton.

    Good god, those things have been falling off the shelves for over 2 months here. I am sooo sick of them.

    We're typically slow to get stuff here in the South. Let's see what hasn't gotten here yet...

    Saga basic figs:

    Endor Rebel Soldier (clean shaven)
    Ephant Mon
    Destroyer Droid
    Clonetrooper (pilot)
    Yoda (high council)
    Rebel Trooper
    Imperial Officer
    Eeth Koth
    Teebo

    Saga deluxe figs:

    C-3P0 (assmebly line)
    Clonetrooper (speeder bike)
    Yoda (force powers)

    ...I've been fortunate so far to find all the Unleashed figs though, as well as all vehicles (Teh Gunship didn't last long here). Most of the later 02 figs are still very scarce with a bunch of early waves still on the pegs.

    The Accessory packs & Action Fleet Target exclusives have been major peg warmers down here.

    I never saw the following at retail:
    --ANY of the Target exclusives... with the sole exception of the Tatooine Skiff reissue. :)
    --Ephant Mon :(
    --C3PO and R2-D2 Christmas Pack :(
    --The original 12" Darth Maul :(
    --Jorge Sacul (and yes, I WAS at Celebration II!) I FINALLY get into the CII store early enough on Sunday, the final day of the con, get in the long line... and I'm a mere 5 people away from the counter when the announcement comes on that they've SOLD OUT COMPLETELY FOR THE ENTIRE CONVENTION!!! :mad:
    And as if that wasn't bad enough...
    I overhear scalpers talking...
    "Yeah, I went Friday, got 2...
    went back Saturday, got 2 more...
    went back again today and got 2 more!"
    ...
    You bastiches are darn LUCKY I didn't have a real, WORKING lightsaber with me! :mad:
    And you know who you are, too. :mad:

    Ummmm...
    yeah, so that's about it for me. :)

    I too apparently have been quite lucky over the years considering the black hole of collecting I live in. The following I have never seen:

    Y-Wing (have even been able to trade for one of these)
    Luke/ Wampa

    That's really about it. I found at least six sets of the Sio/R2/TC/Amidala wave at a local K-martr of all places.

    And you have to be patient with the last few saga figures. Many are still sitting in warehouses around the land. It has only been in the past couple of weeks that Ephant has hit in numbers around Indiana.

    "Well, aren't we lucky?"


    The midwest (I live in Chicago) is in the middle of a shipping strike, sorta. Not exactly lucky. :p

    Hmm. The one figure that i cant seem to find anywhere is Darth Vader Emporer's Wrath. Other than that, i got most all of what has been listed. I dont see why they (Hasbro) dont do like Kenner did and make the figures in each line. Here's an example of what i mean: Lot of people couldnt find TC-14 or Swimming Jar Jar, so why didnt they put it on POTJ and Saga Cards? Kenner regularly put the figs on all of the cards. I have at least 4 Stormtroopers that were on ROTJ cards. Doesnt this make sense?

    Saga stuff has been harder to find here in Wisconsin lately.

    I remember a few years ago when they released the Expanded Universe figures, I never found them. Never. The figures they made were Grand Admiral Thrawn, Kyle Katarn, Mara Jade, Darktrooper, and a few others that I forget. I never found those.
