Sorry guys, I just had to post this story.....

I went to a Walmart on Saturday looking for Palp and Puhr, since those were the only figs that I needed. Well, I found about 6 Ultimate Jango Fett's but did not get one because I was skeptical about spending $40. I went back to the Walmart today to get my Jango and lo and behold, I found all of the newest waves! The Bespin, Orn, and Chewie waves were in full abundance except for Palp and Puhr. I went rumaging through the pegs to find any, and I came across one Palpatine. "Yes! This is one that I need!" I did find a Djas Puhr, however, the card was bent. Since I like to collect carded figures, my heart was torn because that was the first and only Puhr I found, damaged. I also grabbed an Ultimate Fett and made my way to the register. I decided to check out the Super Walmart too, since it was near the regular Walmart. I not only found my Djas Puhr but an extra Yoda, so I could have one opened. Today was my lucky day, and I have a complete collection, as of right now, until the new waves are released. I am happy :D .

Rock on partna!!! I'm caught up for now, but have considered going around and trying to find some of the old POTF2 vehicles, but will wait. I pre-ordered my Maul/Ki-Adi, etc waves and whatnot, so those should be here shortly. Are there any more vehicles (besides Landspeeder, X-wing) being re-released????

So when are you mailing my figures off? :p j/k

Congrats on the find, I hope I can have a find like that soon, I'm getting crazy over the lack of the Massiff, Chewie and Palpy. :crazed:

I too finally found Palpatine and Djas last night. I guess they're finally starting to arrive in bulk. Maybe I'm getting spoiled. I didn't like that Djas has no elbow swivels and I hate when they package them to the side, so I left him. He did look pretty good though...they also had the new Obi, more B. Luke's and a couple Dooku's.

Only figure I couldn't find was Chewie. Is he even in that case? Hey, the case info isn't up to date. Where can I find a complete list of all the case packs that is up to date?

Is Chewie out yet???

Chewie looks decent and is rather tall. I like that figure.

07-10-2002, 06:51 PM
Yes, the Chewie is out and a must have figure!!!! He's the best Chewie up to date!
If you see him get him because he is worth the 5 bucks!
