    In the Jawa Trader they show some of the figures we have been looking for, such as Sidious hologram, TC-14 and the new Obi-Wan. Of course the question is do they actually have these figures in stock?

    Yes, we need details! Sounds like a show to check out.
    I am looking through the latest issue of SW Galaxy Collector and in its listing of SW collecting clubs is this:
    Colorado Action Figure Collecting Alliance
    (CAFCA)
    Has anyone heard of this? Would it be a good Colorado SW connection?
    What do you think?

    I'm hoping to go to this collector's show. Are there going to be Star Wars things there?
    Anyone else going? I'll look for the PAX TV booth.

    Ok guys heres the scoop on the TRU thing. I went to the store on Missippi..where I used to work and they had alot of older stuff. Darths TIE, X-Wings, T16s A-wings, Princess Leia collection, Beast Packs, and a few old figures for $1.97, also, Landspeeder, and the Hoth and Endor playsets. I talked to the manager and she told me they had all kinds of AT-ATs but at $10 a piece they lasted about 2 hours. I guess the TRU on Colorado Blvd is gettin some stuff in on Friday.....I will be there! County Line Road TRU was a bust I checked it out.

    OK, on to the collectors fair!
    What a nightmare that was. We had over 1000 people show up for free appraisals, we were expecting 100. There was some old and new SW stuff there at good prices, close to retail.

    BUT...one dealer tried to screw me over. I know that she wasnt into Star Wars, she just had a few loose figures on a table and I asked how much. She told me $3, which was fair, none had their weapons and they were all common. I didnt get any just then I wanted to look around some more. So I went pack to her table and the price of the figures had jumped to $8. I looked at her and told her that not 10 minutes ago you told me they were $3. So she went through the usual speech..I know what my stuff costs, blah blah, blah. I told her that it must change ever few minutes! WEll at this point people were lookin and she noticed...adn said....Well there is one in there that is $3, thats what I told you. I said No I asked in general what the figures cost and walked off. What an idiot.

    OK theres my .02 get over to Missippi TRU!

    I checked out the TRU on Colorado and they had nothing! Nothing old from the POTF2 line, nothing new at all! I still can't find the 12" Han and of course nothing new in the smaller figures!

    Wow, where is everyone? I found the new Episode 1 wave at the TRU on Mississippi. This has to be the best store I have ever been to! They had 3 cases to put out with three of each new figure in each case, it might be worth a look.
    jwkenobi, I was wondering the same thing as well, where is the Fan Club store? I have been dying to get out there, guess I will have to call them and find out.
    Come on guys I know your out there!

    I'm still here! So what figures were in the new wave? I didn't know there were any new Ep. 1 figures coming out for awhile.

    yippee! We made it to 9 pages. Our state is the best!
