Why can't I find an Ephant Mon?

    Dammit! Weeks and weeks I've been looking for this stupid figure! I can't find Ephant Mon! I find the new Maul, Tatooine Attack Anakin, Pilot Amidala, Clonetrooper Pilot, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Teemto Pagalies, and all the other new figures, but no Ephant Mon!

    I'm also annoyed I can't find the new Destroyer Droid.

    Is anyone else having trouble finding these two figures?

    I found him...

    In the Target Ads in the paper ;)

    I haven't seen him, but you know that if you are looking for them too hard, you just won't find them.

    At least... that's what happens to me.

    Well, I found a clean shaven Endor Soldier today at K-Mart but still no Ephant Mon.

    Well, the Destroyer Droid hasn't been released yet, so don't fret over not finding that (same with high council yoda, and the red battle droid).

    I have seen all of the other figures other than Ephant. I'm keeping my eye open for him. Don't worry, you'll see him sooner or later.

    Are you sure? I still haven't found the Ki-Adi Mundi/Teemto Pagalies wave.

    Well, I finally found him at a Toys R Us. I think he might have been the only one, but I saw a ton of all the other new figures.

    So, is the previous poster right? Is the Destroyer Droid not out yet?

    My TRU has Ephant Mon in the back room. They wont open the cases and put them on the racks until some of the other figs start getting sold. Too many darned peg warmers. There is like 6 rows of Teebos and Bo-Sheks!

    K3po, same with me... I just found Ephant Mon and Cleanshaven Rebel Soldier yesterday while shopping for toys for my two kids (of course, Dad has to get something too), but I haven't seen a Gunship Clonetrooper ever. That's the only one I need to complete my '02 collection.....

    SithLord,

    Does this mean that you have the Jedi Council Yoda and Destroyer Droid? When did you find them? Where did you find them?

    I have yet to see Ephant Mon in RL... :(

    I want him bad, but not bad enough to pay extra to buy it online + shipping costs... :(

    The hard to find figures from 3-4 months ago (Palpatine, Djas Puhr, Orn Free Taa, Ki-Adi & Teemto) are now peg warmers, so we'll probably see something similar with Ephant Mon & the Clone Pilots...

    Are JC Yoda and the Destroyer Droid '02 numbers?
    If so, I need them to complete my '02#01 through '02#52 collection.
    Sorry for the mix-up. I'm in a constant state of confusion; Didn't mean to have everyone join me. Does having both variations of the Rebel Soldier count for anything?

    Yes, Yoda and the Destroyer Droid are '02 figures. They are the last two. As far as I can see and remember, Obi-Wan Acklay Battle is the first '03 figure.
