Which figure/ship/beast/anything is the biggest pegwarmer in your area? In mine it's the Reek...So many Reek...There are tons of them, then some get bought. Know what goes in their place? More Reek!!! Then they shorten the shelf lengths, but there are still the same amount of Reek...I can't take it, all the Reek, Reek, Reek, Reek, REEK!!!!! And not an Acklay in sight.



:mad:REEK!!!!! :mad:

Our Wal-marts knocked the price of Reeks down to $5 and then they all disappeared.

The biggest pegwarmer for us absolutely has to be Jar Jar.

Sorry JJ. :(

Ohh, I have to say Zam Wessel (I guess it doesn't pay to die early in the film). I walked into one store and there were like 30 Zams and 2 Jar Jars. That was all. Nothing else in the whole store.

geez, the only place I can find any figures from 4/23 is at TRU! Target and Wal-mart seemed to have cleared them all out. Zam seems to be hanging around a lot though.

Lando asked for some on his hot dog at the dinner right before Han showed up - no, really, can you not tell it's a gun??? And what kind of mustard do you buy, if it's orange??? :crazed: :D

I mix my Ketchup with my Mustard so its orange...sorry!:D

THE biggest pegwarmers in my area are socks! I know everyone says socks are for feet. but,there are lots of people with pegs that wear socks. And,most people don't even notice they have pegs!They say put pepper on pegs or hot ash on pegs to keep them warm.However,pepper makes most people sneeze and hot ash can damage a peg if not applied properly. As for me I say socks are the best and should be used on pegs everywhere!

My local stores seemed to have stocked up with enough Han Solo/Chewbacca waves to last until the next Ice Age.........

It all depends on which stores you go to:

TRU: Padme, Super Battle Droids, C-3PO and Kit Fistos up the wazoo! These have just shown up within the last few weeks. I guess the staff was sick of selling SAGA figures, so they decided to kill sales by overordering these old and crappy figures.

Wal-Mart: Jango Final Battle, Han, Chewy, Mace Windu, Darth Vader, Jedi Obi, Djas Puhr (strangely enough I couldn't find a Palpatine). Way overordered the Han Endor wave.

Target: Captain Typho, Vaders, Jango Fett Final Battle. They have the least pegwarmers of all the bunch.

KBs: Senator Jar Jar Binks, Super Battle droids, Padmes.

that a spirit hango! I say we need to get rid of all these figures that have been around forever to be able to continue on in our collecting of the figures. the OPD ani is one of the worst peg warmers, and so is mace, we need to get rid of the things bring out the new. (Maybe we could go on strike against the local stores to get their attention in reopacking the old figs. and purschasing newer makes in boxes, and bring out the new!)
That sure feels great to getout of your system.

well, it wouldn't hurt them if just me and you went on strike, we would need alot of people that shop there to go on strike with us! but they would probably just tell us to get of there property...

The figures at our Wal-Mart aren't moving very well,so its hard to say. They have one section where the figures are marked down to $3.00 and they aren't moving either. Thats why we can't get anything new here. I guess I will have to buy the $3.00 ones and start doing customs.
