I was wondering, how many people have found Nexus, and how many haven't? I have never seen one, and I would REALLY like this figure. This is the one I want more than any other (Yes, even the Acklay). So, have you found one yet, or is my area the only one that isn't getting them? I hope this figure isnt like the Holo Sidious...Ive never seen one of them (HoloSidious), and probably never will.

I haven't seen any yet but a couple friends have. I just haven't been out to any stores in a few days. I'm sure they will be plentiful soon.

My sister in Colorado picked me up one last week. But, I have to remind people that haven't found one yet, the following points. The Nexu just started hitting, and lucky collectors and scalpers are gobbling up the current shipments. Don't worry, again...nothing will be rare this year. Holo Sidious was near the end of the E1 line, thats why he was somewhat hard to find. The Saga line, including the Deluxe figures, still are doing well, so don't worry if you can't find one in your area yet. :)

Yeah, I think you're probably right. I'm sure they'll show up sometime. Thanks. :)

I know this thread is about the Nexu, but has anyone found ANY of the holo figures? (Sidious, etc.) It almost seems as if they were never distrubuted at all, although I know that is not true. I'd like one, but I have vowed that I will NEVER buy from scalpers. I hate scalpers with a passion, they make me sick. That may sound a bit extreme, but I mean it.

In regards to the Holo Sidious, why not buy one from another collector, or trade for one in the Classifieds section? Or keep your peepers on Ebay, you can occassionally catch a good deal. :)

Nexu hasn't showed up in my area yet, although I'm going to a TARGET that I heard it's been showing up at on Friday.

Areas that haven't got them in yet, perhaps they have and are just waiting to clear out Deluxe Jangos and the force flipping figures.

Haven't been in any stores since last weekend, but three out of the five Wally-Worlds here in Tampa had alot, along with Deluxe Ani. I wouldn't sweat it too much, I'm sure they'll get to you.

The Nexu, along with Deluxe Anakin, started showing up in my area the past couple weeks. I like the Nexu quite a bit. Passed on the Deluxe Ani, though. The times I've seen them, they've both shown up in pairs, so it's probably pretty easy to miss them right now.

By the way, I happen to have an extra Nexu up for trade, if anyone is interested:

They are showing up here with regularity. I wouldnt be too worried as to being able to find them later. I am positive everything will be available to those who wait. But if you cant. I found some auctions on ebay for the deluxe yoda......buy it now for 50 bucks!!! If it's worth 40 bucks more to get a figure 2 days before everybody else, more power to that person. I personally can wait

Everything shows up EVENTUALLY (unless it's some discontinued variant like the bloody Luke). Look at how tough the Royal Guard, Taun We, and Luminara were to find right around 4/23. Now, I can go into Target and buy no less than 5 each of those figures, if I wanted to. Major pegwarmers. :)

In the Bay Area, they are showing up frequently at Target (Bridgepoint) for almost 2 weeks now. None whatsoever from any of the 3 TRUs I visit :(

I haven't been able to find Nexu at all yet, is he a deluxe figure or a basic?

Looks like we have to wait until july for it over here. No reports from down in the big smoke (London area) or in the very lucky midlands area where most stuf shows up first. I'm expecting to see them second week of July in the Acklay shipments for some reason. Like Hasbro will ship tons of stuff at the same time.
I was thinking of ordering online, I think I'll wait and see what shows first before deciding on that.
Really got a tingle for the nexu and Acklay though. Yay for the beasties! hasbro should have packed a little clear stand for the Acklay because it looks like the legs don't support the weight of the body and it collapses like it's dead from the get go. Shame. Have to see what I can rustle up myself so it's displayed right. It's Gonna look prrrretty fly on the arena display shelf though. :)

Both new delxue figs (Nexu and Ani) are everywhere here. Started showing up heavy late last week. Seems like Target is getting the bulk of them, maybe because they knew they were going to run a sell on the deluxe and move some inventory.

It's a deluxe, and with deluxe figs on sale right now at Target for $7.44 it's a steal.

Picked up my nexu at target today for 7.50. They had a bunch of 'em, along with deluxe Ani who I passed on. Gotta say I like Mr. nexu. I'm not a big fan of noise-making, battery-powered figures, but he just looks so awesome!

I have seen him both at Target and at Wal-Mart this past week. Didn't have the dinero so I passed on him, but I would have gotten him if I had the money, especially one I saw him at Target for they are having a sale on deluxe figures this week (7.30something I think?) The Wal-Mart in my city must of had 10 of him.

I passed on the Nexu when I first saw it a week or so ago, and now it's vanished from all local Wal-Marts, and my TRU has yet to stock it.
