    Postman,

    I live in Spring Hill, and no new wave of figs. are here. But I went to my dad's last weekend and found the new wave by his place, over near the staduim. I couldn't beleive my eyes when I saw they had all the new figs. I was sooo happy!! They didn't even have the old ones, just the new. I didn't have any money, so my dad brought me 2. I'm just happy I got the new Jango fig. [face_love]

    Dankee. :D



    Oh, and I know this will sound really, REALLY weird, but...

    Last night I had a dream that my brother and I went to Toys R Us. I went directly to the Star Wars section as usual. Then I noticed it. THEY ONLY HAD TWO TYPES OF FIGURES IN THE WHOLE STAR WARS SECTION!... Clonetrooper Pilot and some weird red Jango Deluxe thing. I went nuts! I grabbed two Clonie pilots and two of those weird red Jangos and went to the cash register singing.

    Sadly, we ACTUALLY have no Clonie Pilots over here. :(

    The newest figs that I have seen around here (central coast, California) is the Sith Training Darth Maul (Kay-Bee Toys) and the Anakin Skywalker Tatooine Attack (Toys R Us), I haven't tried Target in a while, so this coming Wednesday I'll check them out. But overall it's kind of a bummer, every store seems to carry les and less as time goes on. [face_plain]

    12 Motion:

    I think those figures are slated for a January/February release. I think the running Padme and figures from that wave are pegged for December-ish. But since I live in the vast toy wasteland known as the Midwest, I'm sure I'll find the Force Lightning Tyranus around St. Patty's Day.....

    Sorry to burst a bubble, but there are NO release dates for the figures. If they did it like DVDs where you could just go up on the date and pick it up it would be quite different. It would certainly help with scalping....

    There might be a date when the figures first leave teh factory for distribution centers....

    But this has very little to do with when you'll have the figures at your local stores.....If your stores are clogged(and I mean clogged) with older Saga figures, it's highly unlikely that they'll be getting any of the newer figures any time soon...The hype has died down, kids have moved on, and most of us who still collect already have what we want of what's readily available...

    These figures aren't going to magically disappear unless Hasbro comes and takes them off the shelves....

    "Yeah Ret I know, I just kinda hoped they would ask here as opposed to starting a new thread for it. "

    I see. Good point.

    Yeah. My Wal-Mart has all the old figs. They do have the new Electronic Jango Fett....but $30 is a little much for it. But that's the only real new stuff, besides the 12" Battle Droid and Zam Wesell.

    I had a Dream,where the head of Hasbro was Palpy.He cut the new shipments of figures. He tell`s me to join him,and torture Collectors.So I get into a duel with him,with our Rubies Lightsabers,and I destroy him. I walk into the backroom,and the whole new shipments there. Wierd dream isn`t it?

    Chicago I almost gave up on Collecting in The Windy City. I am still loyal,and forgot all that. Tommorrow I`m looking for new figures.
    I`ve had a bunch.
    I had a LOTR one,where I was Sauron,and My Ring could turn anybody I wanted into a Monkey. Of course I went to my School,and did it all over the place.My Nemimis at School was Islador.He killed me. I was an eye must of the dream to.

    Hey guys, I've had a few Collecting dreams myself! Very similar to Sithy's dream. :)
    It usually involves me at a Toy store finding New figures, but of course they are SW figures I've never heard of, but are always really cool! :p A lot like Sithy's Red Jango, a lot of very weird figures, he he :D
    We are all Obviously obsessed with collecting ;)

    Yes it is the same figure that came out in the Power of the Jedi line. Any body know why they are repacking the first 4 on that list and resealing them?

    I was wonder if people are finding new figures are they buying them?? If people are buying them and posting it here it seams like we have 2 new acquisition threads
