I haven't, but I've seen the Trash Compactor Sets.
I remember reading reports of people finding them way back in December at SW news sites, but I've yet to see any myself. I did see the trash compactor sets yesterday, but I wasn't very impressed by them. Perhaps if they go on sale I might get them, but not at 16 bucks a pop....
Nothing yet. But come on look where I live.
I got the Trash Compacter set 5 days befor Christmas.
Technically, a bunch of great figs were already released on the 10th of January.
Figures like Obi-Wan Acklay Battle, PadmÃ© Droid Factory, Anakin/Vader Unleashed, Leia Unleashed, and other goodies should be hitting stores in a few weeks I should guess, then.
I doubt we'll see the first wave of 2003 figures on the shelf until the end of the month. At least that's what I keep telling myself, so if I do find them, I'll be pleasantly surprised
I finally found the Trash Compactor sets this morning. I know a lot of people have whined about the price, but we're getting a very accurate background and an incredibly detailed base in addition to some unique figures. Since the 25th anniversary 2-packs were $19.99 when they came out, I think $16.87 is a very nice price for these sets.
Who released the trash compactor sets in Oz? They are a Walmart exclusive in the US, and I can't get to one.
EDIT: Sorry, I don't know what made me think this was an Australian thread.
Haven't seen anything new as far as 2003 releases. Did see a clone biker which I bought though.
Can't wait for the new figures. Just need to get my hands on the new Anakin.
there is one booth at frank & sons collectibles in walnut california that has the amidala-droid chase, ewok, tusken, eeth koth and imperial gaurd figures. no price tag on them, but their other current figs were way high so i didnt even ask.
I saw the new Yoda with the council chair and lightsaber yesterday.
But STILL no sight of Ephant Mon!!! What gives?!?
I hope we get them here soon. My Wal-Mart has been REALlY slow lately. K-Mart hasn't had new stock since they came out. Target is pretty good though. I have a feeling that will be where they show up first....
None my way yet. But I still haven't seen Ephant Mon, Gunship Pilots, Deluxe Yoda w/SBD, Deluxe C-3PO, Deluxe Clonetrooper w/speeder bike, and a few others that I can't think of right now.
I've seen all of those except for Ephant Mon.
i've got my screamin padme already. man the head sculpt really bugs; it looks ok in the running position, with the base, but if you just display it standing it looks plain unnatural; like shes got lockjaw or sum'in. time to boil n pop and do a head switch with padme pilot: ultimate padme head (that ended up sounding awkward).
Nothing in Southern Illinois, Western Kentucky or Southeast Missouri.
I'm still way back behind Ephant Mon...god I haven't been looking for SW stuff for way too long. I've been too damn busy.
I havent found any but due to my lack of a job I havent really been looking that hard.
I doubt we`ll see them til at least March
Saw Obi and the RT and the trash sets at a flea market today but that's it.
Leia Unleashed, and other goodies should be hitting stores in a few weeks
i already saw her
i saw the droideka , but technicaly that came out in 02
I have seen the Trash Compactor sets at my local Wal- Mart. They look Pretty good to me. I have seen pics of the jedi high council yoda on ebay, but no visual confirmation that they are in stores yet.
I don't think I'll ever see the trash sets at retail, the WM's around here made their SW sections really small now.
Ret: Ditto. We have about a 4' by 4' space for SW figures now.
