    Went to Walmart yesterday and bought a ROTS shirt. They didn't have any teen girl SW shirts though but because I'm small (5'1") so I was able to fit into a boy's 16-18 size shirt.

    I'm really mad that my local Walmarts don't have any adult sized t-shirts or hats. I haven't seen any since Episode I. :(

    When I got home from work today, the "gift" that a good buddy from Long Beach had sent was waiting on my doorstep:

    I still don't think it's that amazing at all, but when someone offers you a great deal on something, you take it (As in free).

    My dad got me Chewbacca today. I went out and got the new issue of Premiere, and since my dad got me Chewie (and I already had the Sneak Preview Wookiee Warrior), I decided to grab Tarfful. I don't think he's as good as the warrior, but still cool. I love the huge size of the wookiees. His swinging club action was a neat little surprise.

    Today I picked up ROTS Kit Fisto at Wal-Mart. I almost got Darth Vader instead, but I realized I needed a new Kit more than I needed another Vader. Especially considering my only Kit Fisto is the half-naked one from the Clone Wars line.

    2) Sneak Preview R4-G9 (for my ARC-170)
    3) Clone trooper 3.75"
    4) Blue senate guard
    5) Yoda that has over 500 phrases and stories/ trivia from all 6 movies
    6) ROTS Yoda Jedi Training Lightsaber (for my Yoda Costume that I will wear on opening day)
    7) Anakin Unleashed

    ...didn't find any Lava Vaders, though.

    I recently got the Padme Amidala basic figure, which is really needless to say as that is the only thing she has right now, and the 500 piece puzzle that is shaped like Darth Vader's helmet. I got the one that has Darth Sidious, Count Dooku, Anakin Skywalker, and Darth Vader on the Sith side. It is rather difficult to put together, or at least it was to me, but I'm almost done with it now.

    Where did you get those pins from? TOS?

    BTW I'm not a big cat fan but that shot is by far one of the cutest things I have seen in a long time.

    Did a run to town today and managed to find the following in two different bookstores:
    RoTS Graphic novel
    RoTS YA novel (Scholastic)
    RoTS Scrapbook
    RoTS Movie Storybook
    RoTS Funfax diary

    MJF - cute cat!

    I think it will be time for a new thread for this soon - we are getting near 5000 posts!

    Went to TRU to look at their selection, and ended up finding an Obi-Wan Unleashed, the AotC variation, not the new ROTS release. At that point, decided to spend exclusively on the Unleashed figures, as I'm a displayer, and I think the Unleashed set up and display much better than the smaller figures.

    A trip to Wal-Mart provided me with the opportunity to pick up Mace and Count Dooku Unleashed as well. Get them at the stores if you can, and avoid paying the exorbitant eBay prices! I shudder to think what the prices on the harder-to-find Unleashed figures will be like at Celebration III next week as well.

    I went to Target last night, and they had ONLY ONE Polis Massan out. So I got that.
    I swear that my conspiracy theory about Target only putting out one 33+ figure every so often is TRUE!

    However, I should also say to any collectors out there that there are some low number figures that are starting to become less and less seen on the racks of TRU, Target and Wal-Mart. They are: Clone Trooper #6, Padme #19, Count Dooku #13, Bail Organa #15, Battle Droid #17, C3PO #18, Shaak Ti #21 and Mon Mothma #24. So if you don't have these by now, you might want to consider picking them up. And OF COURSE both of the royal guards and anyone over #32 are still scarce.
