Nice to see you and Pugs back Jrock!
~ the Rogues~
I am checking-in from Erie Pennsylvania.
I find the majority of my fix @ TRU, Wal-Mart, KB Toys, and every-now-and-then a comic's shop or two.
Where are ya' Jedi-Junior and T-Bone Kenobi?

Jedi-Junior reporting as ordered, sir! T-Bone is on vacation this weekend so we will hear from him shortly.
I am from beautiful Upstate New York, a city called Saratoga Springs. I love living here - always things to see and do locally and a day trip to Boston, NYC, Syracuse, and Montreal (the most wonderful city I have ever visited!)
I collect mostly vintage and Episode I figs. I am not a "completeist"- I stick to only "cool" stuff. Twoth is "cool"- all hail Twoth!
I live in Mt. Pleasant, MI. Wal-mart, Target and TRU are where I get most of my toys.
New figs trickle into this part of the state, usually a few months late. But I almost always will stumble upon them sooner or later.
Greetings from Maumelle, AR, one of the many places where we get nothing. But hey, I'm happy! I still get all the newest stuff, in fact, a few weeks ago, I FINALLY got my Jedi Duel Darth Maul! WOO-HOO! hehe, No, really. We're just now getting Adi Gallia, no Naboo Anakin, though.. TRU and Wal-Mart are the best places to check, but still, don't count on finding anything new.
I am from Harrisonburg VA, I buy my stuff in walt-mart or TRU'S. They seem to have most of the new action figurs, but I have not seen the new holo sid or the other naboo gurd.
London, england; tea anyone? (adjusts bowler hat.)
steppinrazor i agree TRU sucks!!
conventions and collectors shops are the place to go!

Weirton, WV, up in the Northern Panhandle.
We're the only city in the country to span the width of its state (check out a map, the Northern Panhandle's only a few miles across).
The nice thing about this is that we're between Pittsburgh and Ohio...so we get great diversity at three Wal-Marts less than an hour apart!
Also tons of department stores selling great stuff really cheaply.
Nothing new for a while, though.
Jabba Hutt signing in from across the pond here in the U.K the little island which never seems to get as many figures as I'd like but Purple4lee & Rogue9 know that as they spend a lot of their time helping me find figures, thanks again you two it's very much appreciated!!
Modesto, California. 1/2 a mile away from Target, Wal-mart, TRU, and Kay-Bee. I still don't have much luck finding anything new. At least not lately.
Up, up and away! All of you that haven't checked in, please do so! You never know when you might find a trading partner close by. I met a guy at TRU and we have started emailing and being on the lookout for stuff for each other. I will have to tell him about the council.
I live in Gaithersburg, MD (DC Metro Area). I usually go to Wal-Mart, Target, FAO, and TRU to attempt to find figs. I have pretty much cut that out and just shop online. It seems to be the best way to find anything new.
I'm in Cranford NJ. I buy mostly online. Brian's Toys, and the fan club. Other than that it's TRU mostly. Anybody else in the NJ/NY area let me know.
20 minutes NE of Michigans capitol!
I find most of my figures at Wal-Mart and Toys R Us.
Anyone else from Jersey??

Coral Springs, Florida (hour north of Ft. Lauderdale)
I usually have the best luck at one of my local Toys R Us. There's an FAO Schwarz closeby and I can usually find some great stuff there, too.
I live in Baltimore,Maryland. TRU is the best place to buy Star Wars toys and Another Universe whcih is base in Baltimore and we have 10 store in Baltimore. Rite Aid is also a good place too.
Fulton MO. A small midwestern town .one wal-mart only. have to go to jefferson city or columbia mo. to find anything new .
Norwich, in the UK.
Not the greatest place to find stuff, however I did find the new Lego MTT & AAT today. Result!
