    Thats so much of a surprise...

    on Monday, I was lucky enough to walk into TRU and find the Imperial Forces pack, and then I went across the street to WalMart and found Geonosian Dooku and Acklay Obi-Wan...

    Things have been dry here. I also found Han Hoth several weeks back. I wish I could find more stuff, but alas, no. I think I am just gonna order a few cases from Entertainment Earth, even if it means im gonna pay a few extra bucks, I am tired of the wait for nothing..

    awe, man!@! i thought you were gonna say something like "a duffle bag with a million bucks in it!" or something. or you found definitive evidence of the cause of crop circles.

    yeah, empty pegs here, too for the most part. you gotta love the hasbro folks for preventing any gaps in product availability. [face_plain] when stuff does come in, watch, it'll be a flood of cool stuff in limited quantities.

    And the only way some of us will see any of this new stuff is in a scalper's shop! :(

    You know, I can't figure out which is worse, empty pegs or peg warmer filled pegs? On the one had it's depressing seeing no SW figures at all, but at the same time it's also quite depressing finding peg after peg full of Jango figures... [face_plain]

    Nothing but Pilot Padmes here. :(

    I did see an Imperial Forces pack. But I didn't want to cough up $20.00 for figures I already have. :(

    I haven't bought any Star Wars toys since Dec. 2002. Why? Because nothing is ever available. Last week the pegs were empty I thought that meant a new shipment was coming in. Yesterday I looked and they had all the old figures again.

    i think i'd rather see something on the pegs even if it's old stuff, but i definitely think jango figs have reached a point of market saturation. and occassionally, seeing certain figures that are peg warmers will lead me to purchases in the "army builder" vein, and i usually don't regret that. still, waiting for the new stuff is a little frustrating.

    My toy run today was unsuccessful too. I went to a couple Targets, and I did see a couple of the Yoda with Jedi Council chair figures, but I had already found that a couple months ago somewhere else. I think one of those also had the Yoda lightsaber, but I bought that at Wal-Mart before Easter. I also went to a Meijer's last night, and found nothing new there. :(

    Yesterday I went to a local Target and they new figures. I got Yoda & Chian,the two Jedi younglings,the Jedi research droids,and Lama Su and the clone youth. They also had Alaya Secura,Bariss Ofree,and the new Imperial officer,but I didn't want them,and I already have the POTJ Imperial officer. It looks like some new figs are starting to get into Michigan.

    I found it in a sea of at least 30 Jango Pilots. Er...
