    Since a lot of our success at finding certain things seems to depend greatly on our location, I was just curious as to where you live. (wow, what a longggg sentence. )

    Rogue9 and I live in Grand Bay, AL (right outside of Mobile) in the U.S.A. We mainly find figs at WalMart, Target, TRU, KMart and Service Merchandise. Sometimes we find a few at the drugstores such as CVS and some of the small family owned ones.

    <btw, I had done this thread a long time ago and even tried to dig it up in the boneyard but couldn't seem to find it. Where is SOTS when I need him? >

    Checking in from London, England.
    Most of my figures are found at specialist collector/comic shops as TRU doesn't seem to have had even the 4th wave of Ep1 figures yet!

    Outside of Detroit. Sometimes I have luck around here, sometimes I don't. Fortunately, with the on-line retailers around, I can still get ahold of stuff whether I find it around here or not.

    Just outside of Chicago. We get plenty of new stuff and I have tons of stores around here, unfortunately I seem to always get beat to it.

    I'm from Chicago. I end up purchasing most of my figures from Toys R Us and K Mart. Sometimes I will shop on line when the chase starts to wear me down.

    Louisville, Ky. I can walk to the nearest Toys R Us and mall. I also check out a couple of Wal-Marts, 2 Meijers, a buncha Targets, and K-marts. But I generally find the best stuff in drug stores or grocery stores here in the city.

    Just outside of Seattle, WA. We seem to be one of the last places in the U.S. to get the new stuff. They all seem the start in the East and move this way. I guess it could be worse though...
