I havent found any of the new deluxes at my target or wal-mart. All i have been hitting is the teemto ki adi wave. Where is everyone getting the new deluxes from?

Target, I think.
I, although, don't believe it. That's right! I think all of the west coast is just claiming to have stuff to aggravate us east coasters!
The only thing I'm seriously beginning to doubt is the release of the maul/ani wave. Does ANYONE here have THEM???

I live in Arizona, on the West Coast, and I can tell you for certain that at least the deluxe C-3PO is out. At least it is over here. Yesterday, I went to 4 Targets and the 4th one was the only one to have the C-3PO, they had 5 or 6. Today, I went to yet another Target and they also had a couple of them. I know I'm not trying to aggravate you, just letting you know to keep your eyes open. I've only seen this at Target, and have not found the Yoda.

can those of you with the deluxe c-3po post detailed close up pics and a review of the figure? Same goes for Yoda.

Technically, that's not true because if they were everywhere then I would be able to find them, too. :D

My friend found 1 of each at the Target in Towson, MD last night.

I got Threepio at Target last week so I could do a repaint. They also had the Yoda. I got both of them from KEBco on Monday. I posted a review of the YODA in the REVIEWS section (well, whaddaya know???) ;)

I found two deluxe C3PO's on Saturday, and one Yoda on Sunday. Still need one more Yoda to open, I hope they become as easy to find as all the deluxe figures in the past. If you think about it has there ever been a deluxe figure that didn't warm the pegs after a while? Maybe Yoda could be the first.:rolleyes:

I got the last 2 Yoda and Threepio's at my Target here in W. Mass about 3 or 4 weeks ago and I haven't seen any, anywhere since. And bite me all of you that have Teemto and Ki-Adi or Maul/Anakin. I haven't seen either of those yet and I check all the time. My local Walmarts haven't gotten in anything new since the first Chewbacca wave about a month ago.

I saw about 4 or 5 C-3POs at Target on Monday but no Yodas. I was going to get an accessory pack but I was less than satisfied with that. So I bought some Reese Puffs and got an Anakin Lightsaber pen. Saved me about 6 bucks.

I just found them for the first time this morning. Target had 3-4 Threepios but only one Yoda, so I grabbed on eof each. The Yoda was kind of trashed, but I was going to open him anyway. :)

Update:

Got a Deluxe Yoda today at a different Target. Seems like they are only showing up at those stores. Also saw about 5 deluxe C-3POs.

K-mart had a buy-one Star Wars product get another of equal or lesser value for 50% off. If I had $$$ I would have picked up some figures to open.

KB had the Anakin and Padme unleashed for $17.99.

I saw both at my local KBToys tonight, but passed on both. Firstly, they were 12 bucks each (KB is ALWAYS overpriced), and secondly, I just spent 30 bucks last night when I found the cantina sets at WM.

08-17-2002, 08:33 AM
Yeah I usually pass on KB stuff, but did get the 12" red + yellow clone's

($2 more, not bad since I only got the two)
gonna hit some stores in a couple minutes, hopefully I'll find something
- still looking for teemto, ki-adi!! :frus:

i found both at kay bee and just could not pass them up! i really love the C3P0 though i guess that magnetic crane only works if you don't lock in the heads on the figures.

Darth forb1us
08-17-2002, 05:12 PM
oops, I meant if I saw something at Kaybee, that I knew was elsewhere (say some sbd's for a diorama) I'd get them at walmart for a bit cheaper :p
If I see a new figure at KB I nab it before I miss out :p

I got mine from Entertainment Earth, but I've seen them in Target a couple times already. Found a regular Yoda hiding behind some Jedi Starfighters, and stuck it back on the pegs.

I got the yoda set today at TRU in Warrington UK. It was the last lonely and sad looking one there and not surprising either, the blister was stuck on the card all crooked. Obviously the vultures had swooped earlier and taken the best ones. I'm an opener so it doesn't matter to me, in fact i hope the factory monkeys pack a few more items badly so i get a chance to find them.

Yoda is so-so IMO no better or worse than the basic version. The Super Battle droid has problems standing because they took away the knee articulation. The arm blasters look okay though. The base is cruddy, the crane faling off feature is lame as lame can be and the flipping section is pathetic. For the price of these sets you'd expect a little more in the way of functionality. I only wanted the Super battle droid anyway for background filler so I'm not fussed about the base really but I'm annoyed for anyone actually buying the product and expecting it to work like Hasbro claim it does. It's a rip off basically. Thank god I bought it at the lower price of TRU rather than order online at over the odds and pay shipping on top. I'd feel seriously gipped if I had.

My Yoda appears to be slightly less lime green than some and the Super battle droid is less light blue and more dark grey/blue like the basic version. Just thought I'd mention it having just looked at the pic KIDD posted. :stupid:

Targets all over my area North Mid West have gotten in full cases of both Yoda and C3P0. The Yoda's have been going fast and 3P0 is looking like he's going to warm the pegs.

Just got the deluxe threepio set today, thought I'd post loose images of the figures pulled apart since no-one else seems to have done that. first up is threepio front

Jargo
08-27-2002, 04:06 PM
and the back of him...

Jargo
08-27-2002, 04:07 PM
...and the battle droid front....

Jargo
08-27-2002, 04:12 PM
...and finally the battle droid back shot. Sorry there's no pic of the base but frankly it's poopoo. The droids are great and made of odd plastic but the swappable feature is great fun.

threepio is about half a head shorter than the other threepios and this is down to having shorter legs. The calves are not long enough. The metal bit in both droids heads is well hidden and very small. Only drawback as far as I can see is the battle droid neck is quite flimsy and may sever from heavy handling, the head of the battle droid is obviously molded onto the neck. The gun is hard plastic - or harder than all the POTJ and SAGA stuff so far.

Found C-3PO at Target this past weekend. It's a cool set. Yoda, you are going to be mine very SOON!

Is this deluxe yoda better looking then the basic yoda, in a saber battle scene with dooku?

Jargo
08-29-2002, 04:26 PM
The basic Yoda looks better in battle and the deluxe looks good in a more relaxed pose with the basic Yodas walking stick. I've got my deluxe Yoda strolling towards Palpatine and Mas Amedda right now ready to rumble in the political arena rather than the gladiatorial one which suits basic Yoda right down to a tee.
