    On a side trip to Target today, I caught a glimpse of deluxe Yoda. I'm not sure what to think of it.

    Anyway, that's the newest one I've seen here.

    I've been looking all over the east coast and the newest figures are djas phur, palpatine, bespin chewie, and pilot obi-wan. I've been looking forward to the new Maul and Ki-adi-mundi for months now! If it takes this long for these figures it'll be months before I get my hands on the gunship!

    I have #1-40... the only ones that presented a slight problem were #23 yoda jedi master and #27 Count Dooku Dark Lord, but I got those at Comic-Con.

    But I haven't seen anything past #40 ANYWHERE! Target, Kmart, Wallmart, KB.... I need to go to TRU though, but it's about 30 mins away from my house, and in an area I never go to except rarely for TRU runs. Hopefully they'll have some!!!

    About a month ago, while visiting the East Coast, I went into a Target in New Jersey looking for the elusive accessory packs and found a Tusken Anakin and Maul instead.

    I also found Ki Adi and Teemto at a Kay Bee,

    but other than that and back here in California, (with the exception of one Target where I found the newer deluxe figs), nothing.

    I've found the 12" Dooku, BD, and Zam. Also the accessory packs and cantina sets...

    But no deluxe beyond Nexu(whom I first saw on July 4th) and no regular figs beyond Palpatine and Puhr.

    You're finding too many stores unable to move product from supplememtal shipments post 4/23. They had such an initial wave of purchases that the replinishments have been overkill. Many of the first weeks purchases were made by the hype for the movie. Now that it's out of the theaters(and many peoples minds), there isn't the hype.

    I warned about this last April...that you won't have too much problems getting the first few new waves...but after a while, the interest dies down and older stuff stays on the shelves keeping newer stuff from arriving.

    I can almost guarantee that a decent Mace Windu figure would have kept it from becoming a pegwarmer...

    You'll notice that most of the A-List figures(character and design of figure) aren't the pegwarmers...

    I live in Northern NJ and I haven't seen any New 4 inch figures in a while! :_| Last new one I got was Anakin Tatooine Attack, but that was OnLine. Never seen Deluxe Yoda or 3PO in store or Padme, Jango, or Clone pilots, Ki, or Teemto either!! :( :( Where are they! :mad:
    Today I went to 2 TRUs 2 KBs 2 KMarts & a comic shop and came home with NOTHING NEW!! :( Maybe I'll get Lucky tomorrow, Me & a fellow SW Collector buddy are going toy huntin again. ;) :)
    P.S. I have seen alot of New 12 inch (Electronic too), New X-Wings, & New speeder lately. But Where's The GUNSHIP???????!!!

    BTW YavinJabba :eek: :eek: is all I can say, You're very Lucky! And I'm kind of curious,If you know, what town that target was in? Thanks

    LittleGreenMaster,

    do you mean the Target where I found the Anakin (Windsor, NJ); or the Target where I found the new deluxe figs (Long Beach, CA)?

    For some reason, I've found Targets to be more reliable on getting the deluxe figures ahead of time. I imagine I'll look there first for the Clonetrooper on Speederbike.

    BTW, Bucman, does anyone know if this same problem affected TPM toys? I can't remember if this is why Sio Bibble and TC14 are so hard to come by.

    It has reached the level of absurdity here in Tennessee. The newest figures I come across are the delux 3P0 and Yoda, neither of which I spent money on.

    I guess I'll just save my cash for the 2003 waves. They seem to be more worthy of my blowing money on.

    Yavin. The TPM troubles are the precise reasons I say that it will happen here...

    Nobody had trouble getting the first two waves up to little Jedi Anakin. But after that....

    Good luck....

    Well as I said in another thread, Every Store near me is frozen...They wont be getting any more shipments in for a while.

    Of course that doesnt keep me from looking but it still sucks, Pretty much knowing that I wont find anything... :(

    I must say, its alot easier to find the new figures at comic stores than wal-mart around my neck of the woods. (Central NJ) Theres one comic store that is pretty much a star wars store. They have all the deluxe yodas the mundi's the dookus and red battle droids. Go there and find what you are looking for. Ha not much help am i but filled with spirit.

    I just came from a KB at my local mall and to my surprise they had everyone! I haven't seen any new figures since july(Paplaptine, Djas Phur etc.). They had Anakin Tatooine attack, Padme coruscant escape, my personal favorite darth maul sith training and they even had a few Jango pilots. Just keep looking and you'll find the new figures sooner or later
