View Full Version : Most difficult to find aotc figure

07-29-2002, 08:08 AM
Hey guys. I just wanted to know what the hardest to find AOTC figure is out there. For me, it's definitly Yoda. Haven't seen him since April. Are they still shipping him?

dooku and yoda are shipping 2 per case in the new waves. so they are both the same rareness around here.

07-29-2002, 08:23 AM
man, it's no wonder i've been unable to snatch one! Hasbro just sucks! Because all the stores are loading up on all the new figures, i'm probably never going to see yoda in my area. This is a problem that hasbro should address soon. :mad:

go to the stores at around 4-7 at night. i think that is when they put stuff out if they are open 24 hours....thats what they did at out local meijers.

07-29-2002, 08:26 AM
Yoda here.

cool avatar, nexu! do you like mine?

07-29-2002, 08:29 AM
Sure do. :) You draw that yourself?

Back on topic...

The hardest to find figure(s) for me are any in the newest wave. I can find the first 40 in every Wal-Mart and some targets, although the K-B's and TRUs are just getting the Bespin wave...

Old palpatine is the hardest to find here, mostly because he hasn't been released in theis country yet. :D

07-29-2002, 09:46 AM
while i have not yet found anakin t.a. or darth maul either , i would not call them the most difficult to find since they have been recently released and just haven't made their way around yet.

yoda is definitely the most difficult to find since he is the most popular character (with collectors and kids alike.)
i saw 20 - 30 of him on 4/23 but have seen only 2 since then.

07-29-2002, 09:48 AM
Yoda is far and away still the hardest to find here. Even Dooku and the latest waves are easy to find compared to Yoda.

07-29-2002, 09:51 AM
Yoda is peg warming around here but he's gone by the next day but if you go to a toys r us around here on the day they get the shipments you can find him even at mejers i have seen Yoda and Count Dooku

Yoda. I have Dooku and HD Anakin, but not Yoda. I've never even seen him!

07-29-2002, 09:57 AM
The new Anakin and Maul figures are yet to be found in my area. Everything else seems to be availabe( for a limited time of course) when it hits the stores. Hope to find the new ones soon, real soon.

07-29-2002, 10:07 AM
Same thing here. Yoda seems to be flying off the pegs! I have all the other figures except for Yoda. I guess I'll have to buy him on ebay. Hasbro! You suck!

07-29-2002, 10:12 AM
I know this isn't the right place for it but I don't really care :D

I have a Yoda if anybody wants it...

07-29-2002, 10:43 AM
Palpatine and Orn Free Ta have not hit here yet.

07-29-2002, 10:54 AM
I keep seeing Yoda lots of places here in Illinois lately... I hope you guys can find him soon. I wouldn't recommend buying him on Ebay. Yoda will be pegwarming in your area before you know it. For me the most difficult to find figures are the newest wave of Ki Adi, Teemto, Anakin TA, and Darth Maul. I've never seen the last two anywhere!

07-29-2002, 10:54 AM
Shaak Ti isn't out in the UK yet (which is the only fig i want at the moment) but i've seen a few Yodas kicking round recently

07-29-2002, 02:36 PM
not counting the newest figures i have not seen a yoda or douke around here since 4/23 glad i picked them up the first day. :)

07-29-2002, 03:10 PM
YODA...we seek YODAS!!!! Seriously though...i finally got Yoda and Count Dooku, but strangely enough i havent found R2.:eek:

07-29-2002, 04:12 PM
There haven't been any stand out figures being rare here in Georgia...Yoda is probably my vote...haven't seen too much of him lately.

Ok, Yodas not the hardest to find for me anyore-Just got him tonight! The only one at my TRU... Palpy is the hardest now. Or the Acklay.

07-30-2002, 02:06 AM
I have only seen 3 Yoda's so far. And I bought all 3 of them! 1 to open, 1 MOC, and one to trade/sell.

Anakin HD & TA are the hardest ones to find here, haven't evem seen them. Yoda is almost as hard to find, and Dooku I can get from the coollectors shop in the next town anytime.

07-30-2002, 07:19 AM
Yoda, Dooku, and HDAnakin have seemed to turn up everywhere here in Springfield, IL. When I go to Target, I see at least 5 of each. It seems like Kamino Escape Jango has become harder to find. I needed to pick one up for a custom, went to every store in town and could not find one Kamino Escape Jango, just the Final Battle one. I had to resort to buying him online.

07-31-2002, 10:24 AM
I'm amazed that people still cannot find Yoda and Dooku. I've seen hundreds of both, although not as many in the past couple of weeks as before. I've seen them all times of the day in all types of stores. Ah well.

Hardest to find right now has to be Palpatine. I've only seen 3 or 4 of that one.

I've only seen Yoda and Dooku twice since 4/23. I'm glad I have one of each since they're so tough to get. Chewie and OB1 pilot are also HTF but I guess they are still kind of new so it shouldn't be a problem of finding them eventually.

Right now I wish Palpy and Djas would be HTF. They're clogging the shelves everywhere.

Some of us only wish we had that problem...:D

Count Dooku
07-31-2002, 11:58 AM
Too true. We haven't even seen Palpy yet or Djas. Actually up here Orn Free Taa, Endor Soldier, Qui Gon, and Massiff were only released at Wal Marts. No other store had them at any time. That four are the hardest to find in the Trilogo Saga line.

07-31-2002, 12:02 PM
Yeah I know, I was lucky to find then when I stopped inat a Wal-mart in North Bay.

07-31-2002, 01:22 PM
Plo Koon is the rarest figure around here

07-31-2002, 01:24 PM
Plo Koon?! Damn, that is odd.

07-31-2002, 01:24 PM
He's warming pegs here at my local TRU.

07-31-2002, 02:41 PM
I would say Yoda is kinda the rarest... Also I noticed I have not been seeing any R2s around...

Cheers :D

07-31-2002, 03:31 PM
I aint kidding I cant find a Plo Koon anywhere, and my little brother lost my only Plo Koon Saga about two weeks ago!

07-31-2002, 05:52 PM
I went on a big big hunt throughout Chicago's Northwest subarbs last weekend. The only thing I saw that was rare was Teemto/Maul/TA Anakin (which I only saw at 2 stores) and I only saw 1 acklay. Everything else is pretty plentiful around here.

08-01-2002, 01:21 AM
Bloody Luke, although I have yet to see Palpatine and DP in stores. Lately I've been seeing more Dookus and HD Anakins, and even saw another Yoda today.

08-01-2002, 01:49 AM
