View Full Version : New Unleashed Figures Found!!

07-26-2002, 12:41 AM
K, here is the info: went to see an advanced screening of "Austin Powers in: Goldmember" tonight here in Columbus (freakin' funny!! best one yet!!) and on the way home, my friend dave and i hit the local wal-mart, nothing. He suggested we stop at a meijer on the way home and i'm like "yeah, i'm sure they'll have all sorts of new stuff!" since they haven't had any new stuff in ages.

Yeah, i was pretty wrong!!! We got there, and my jaw dropped. They had the new Wave 9 Simpsons figures and environments. I picked up 2 of the 3 figures i needed (holding off on environments) and continued strolling around. I look at the small Saga fig display and thus what do i see?? Padme, unleashed!!! I got really giddy and snatched her up. I began walking away to find a cart and my friend dave was like "dude, they have Darth too" and i'm all "i didn't think he was out yet" and lo' n behold, there he was!! On the other side of the display, i found tne Unleashed Anakin too!!! They all look really really really sweet!!! I didn't think they were out yet though!!! So, a great movie topped with a hefty bill at Meijer, but new figures!!! wohoo!! Happy hunting!!

Can you post a scan of the receipt to confirm this for everyone?

SS- No, sorry, i can't. I don't have a scanner nor a digital camera. The tag just says


Why? are these figures not supposed to hit shelves yet or something???

I'll try to have my friend Dave take a pic of the figures and IM it to me.

I can confirm that the Darth Maul, and Jango are out. Only two I've seen. They were in an odd place though, on the top shelf in the Saga section.

This is the first report I have heard about Padme and Vader being released. You can either e-mail me a picture or use the add attachment option when replying to a post here in the forums.

That is great... I really think the Anakin Padme and Vader ones look the best... :)

Cheers :)

JRosen- i scored it at the chantry drive (brice road) meijer. I'm not sure if every Meijer got them, but it looks like they might have it. good luck!

Found Padme and Anakin at Meijer in Lexington, KY... no Vaders, though :(

My girlfriend and I were looking at the new Unleashed figures, and she noticed how ridiculous Anakin's Padawan tale is. What is wrong with that thing?! If it were straight, it would hang lower than him!!! Man he is Unleashed!

I've sighted Boba, Darth Maul and Jango at a couple different Wal-Marts and there are tons and tons of them. For $15-$16 they are too rich for my blood so I'll have to wait for clearance on them (and wait for a clearance on the Slave I, and a clearance on the deluxe figs, and a clearance on the 25th Anniversary sets, and a clearance on the . . .)
