just went ot a local wal-mart and they FINALLY got the han solo endor wave in. they had TONS of han (both vesions), chewie, obi-wan and they had 1 djas and 2 dooku and 1 hd ani. we got a chewie (the other one we got off ebay had a light ding in it so we got a mint condition one), djas (same reson as chewie), hd ani (variant/ tray variant.), silver droid caller han. i must say that there were at least 15 of each except djas. we go the last one! and the only ones i thoguht we might see was palpy and yoda but didn't see either of em.

I've been able to find everything that I want too except for Yoda. Come on, gimme, gimme, gimme.

07-17-2002, 02:43 PM
Same here...that green goblin is HARD to get!!:mad:

07-17-2002, 02:55 PM
I've found everything I want except an acklay, teemto, new anakin, maul, and ki-mundi. At one time my toysrus had like 20 yodas all gone the next day though.

07-17-2002, 03:09 PM
I went to several different stores on Sat. and found everything that I had been searching for in the last month. Even over a dozen Bloody Hand Lukes at one KB.:D

I have always said that patience will get you what you want without having to overpay for the figures. But on the subject of the Yodas. I, to, had agreat deal of difficulty finding him until I looked under the base of the shelves. We found quite a few hidden there. The Ki-Adi-Mundi wave hasn't shown up here yet though.

07-17-2002, 03:28 PM
They've had the first 40 around here for a while now. :p
I still can't find a blasted acklay, or the Tatooine Anakin. :frus:

07-17-2002, 03:48 PM
I can't believe people are still having a hard time finding yoda!

07-17-2002, 04:02 PM
As Yoda would say, patience......use the force.....

07-17-2002, 04:06 PM

07-17-2002, 04:27 PM

No acklay here either. :frus: :frus: :mad:

07-17-2002, 07:22 PM
Still waiting for ALL OF THAT STUFF! I guess I'm just not hitting at the right times. Leaving work at 12:30 PM is a pain.

i just found today the chewbacca, djas puhr, palpatine waves. i got one of each carded for my collection. i still have yet to find yoda or count dooku. but i know if i wait it out, i will find them. i heard they are suppose to ship with the next wave, hopefully.

07-17-2002, 08:56 PM
you heard right, thumb wars.

07-17-2002, 09:09 PM
LOL Hango you don't have any of the 3 arena beasts! :D

hango fett
07-17-2002, 09:35 PM
we have then nexu, but are waiting on the reek.

07-17-2002, 09:44 PM
Huh? Dude, the reek is like the most common AOTC toy I know of! They don't have any where you are?

hango fett
07-17-2002, 09:48 PM
i mean that we are waiting on buying it. they are everywhere her too, but shrinking in population. they must be a slowly dieing breed!! ;)

07-17-2002, 09:52 PM
Dying very slowly. So slowly that here they are increasing in number! :D

hango fett
07-17-2002, 09:54 PM
well, the wal-mart we went to todya only had 2. stick that in your pipe and smoke it! ;) J/K!!!

07-17-2002, 10:03 PM
Um...I don't smoke. :crazed:
Be sure to let me know if you find an acklay! I think when hasbro shipped them they put cloaking devices in their boxes!
"But sir--no toy that rare has a cloaking device!"
"But I've looked in every wal-mart--there's no trace of them!"

hango fett
07-17-2002, 10:06 PM
i think they did that here too! oh, well...i will wait this time and not give in to the dark side (A.K.A. ebay!!)

07-17-2002, 10:08 PM
Didn't you say your rule was to wait one month before ordering it off ebay? IIRC the Acklay was supposedly released in June! :eek:

You will find them, eventually...... just like 'ol Hango found the figures.

Heck, I even found the figs I was missing... almost a month and half after their release, but I found them.

Last week I went to Wal-Mart and saw tons of the Orn Free Taa wave as well as the Palpatine wave. They must of had 10-15 of each figure. Since I already had the entire Orn wave and a Palpy, the only figure that I picked up was a Djas Puhr. I counted about 11 of them and I bought one. This was late in the afternoon, at 5:30 btw.

I later went to check my E-mail that night and my collector friend said he would like one, so I drove to Wal-Mart, literally minutes before they closed. I went to get a Djas for him and there were only 3 left. Needless to say I was lucky to find him when I did. When I get my Mace tomorrow that means I'll have all 40. No sign though of Ki-Adi or Acklay though.

no yoda, no puhr, no new stuff here, were just getting in the bespin wave these last couple weeks....

07-18-2002, 08:43 AM
I found a whole bunch of Acklay's at Walmart, but since I don't collect any of the creatures, I didn't get it!

07-18-2002, 10:06 AM
yeah all we have here is the bespin wave, and still no bloody hand luke's, also no acklay's are here, but nexu is a pegwarmer over here,also the toys r us by my house got a HUGE shipment of Hd anakin's, Yoda's, and Dooku's, also all the jedi's except PLO KOON!errrr....

07-18-2002, 10:12 AM
I have Plo Koon. :D

07-18-2002, 10:25 AM
Hango, around here the place that I still see Yoda at is CVS pharmacy and ocassionally at Toys'r us. Mainly the one in Springfield which hasn't put out a new figure since the Anakin Hangar wave.

07-18-2002, 10:27 AM
Where is Chewie???????

Still nothing new here. Still not one Dooku on the pegs, and only one Yoda since 4/23 (it's mine...).

Did find Palpy and Djas early - but none since.

The latest peg warmer here is the Bespin wave. YIKES!

Same here, I'm waiting to get a 2nd Nexu (to open), an Acklay then the Reek if it's hopefully on sale by then.

The Chewie and Djas waves are starting to be alot more common here too. :cool:

of course you would deadeye........................................... ..but this isn't the place to go to that subject on....BTW, i just got a palpy out of the pack and he is pretty cool. 7 points of artic. and a cool schemeing look on his face....i need to make a diorama with him in it....

07-20-2002, 08:53 AM
Yeah, you should. He's a pretty good figure! :)

By the way, he has nine points of articulation:
-Both shoulders
-Both elbows
-Both wrists
-And under his robe, both his legs can swivel/turn...although his "dress" lets him stand, so the legs are basically useless. :D

hango fett
07-20-2002, 08:57 AM
they don't count legs. or i don't count legs unless they can bend at the knee so he can sit in a chair.

07-20-2002, 03:14 PM
Not only sit in a chair, but kneel or do cool stunts!
Yeah, Palpatine in a lightsaber duel would be ridiculous. :D

Sometimes, I click on a dead thread and find something that's so humorous in hindsight, I have to bump it and make a snide remark. This is one of those times. Because Palpatine in a lightsaber duel was certainly ridiculous! :D
