Tycho, this may help. Both of these cases are scheduled to start showing up in September/October. Anakin: TA, Darth Maul: ST, Padme CA, Watto, Lott Dod, and Tusken w/ Massiff are already shipping. And Unleashed Mace and Dooku are starting to show up at Meijer's. This info is from Entertainment Earth. :)

Jar Jar,

How long will it be before this latest wave becomes common?

Probably about the time the video gets released. It worked with LOTR's stuff. I never ever saw a Saruman figure until LOTR's came out on DVD/VHS. All that anticipation for the figure just to be disapointed when I did find one. His outfit is the wrong color, and frankly he looks less like Christopher Lee then any of Hasbro's Dooku figures. Sorry, had to have a little rant in there. :)

DeadEye, you know that if you want Anakin: TA so much that there is Ebay. If you watch and wait a lil, you can usually get one for a decent price. And there on-line stores like Kebco and Yestertoys that may have the Anakin. Other then that, you just need some patience. Infact Allience Collectibles has 7 up for a $7.99 BIN right now on Ebay. :)

Really? Must be one of those magic Wal-Marts.
I mean, it's just so weird! My Wal-Mart has gotten all the rest of the waves the same time as everyone else. Every wave! And now, here we are with the latest one, and nary a sighting.

I bought my TA Anakin & Darth Maul about a month ago at Meijer's as well, somewhere between Detroit, MI and Louisville, KY. There were several of each, as well as a few Yoda's. They have been out for a while.

Well, no wonder everyone has one of these but me! Almost everyone says they got 'em at "Meijer's"...of which I've never been in and none of which exist anywhere around here! :frus:

Nope, Meijer's are just in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and now in Kentucky in the last few years. Very similar to a Super Wal-Mart, up in the midwest where Wal-Mart only recently started venturing.

Hmm...Hopefully those waves will make it to my area, I NEED to pick up 2 or more of those Clonetroopers. They look cool and I need the pods for the Gunship...well, if I ever find it, that is. I don't think those waves are going to make it here. Newest figure in my area-Teemto/Ki-Adi. Newest Beast/Deluxe-Nexu. Newest ship-TRU Exclusive X-Wing. I just hope they make it here, the new waves sound great.

I too am looking forward to the new waves of clonetroopers pilots!! I think they are just totally cool and neat!! Maybe just maybe when I see the gunship... I won't hesitate to grab it too... I think I'll get 2 Ephant Mons... One carded and one open to display on my shelf!!

I haven't seen any of those new figures here in Jersey yet. In fact, only recently have Palpy and DP become common here. Seems like all I see now is the Bespin/Chewie wave everywhere.

Generally speaking, waves do not "dry up" after their initial release.

All of us get frustrated when we can't find something when everybody else is. - like the first week something comes out.

I saw a lot of people complaining they couldn't find Palpatine and Djas Puhr before. Chewbacca as well.

Now they are "pegwarming" - another term for available.

For "Pegwarming" see Amanaman, Slave Leia Deluxe, Zutton, Duro.

I am used to getting things the first week stuff comes out. Now California is generally later than the East Coast, so I don't have to post when I find stuff - everyone knows it's out by then.

But I do go at 7am (store opening times) before work when stuff is shipping, and I do hoard (so I can NOT go another morning).

This means I'm going to get every last Clone Trooper pilot (until I have 8 actually) that's there and I'll only share (equally) with someone else who's there at the store when I am (that is, you can have half my bounty, or with 3 people, take thirds).

Once I get 8 (approx. all the clones in 3 cases) I won't go shopping for weeks (if nothing else is shipping). Stores get in a lot of cases eventually. If you can't or just WON'T go in the mornings, or don't have connections at stores, you WILL get the figures. Sometimes 2 months after I have them.

So you have to ask yourself:

1) are you just in this hobby to collect the figures at whatever casual rate you get new stuff at, as long as you get it,

or

2) is it a thorn in your side if you don't have it as soon as people here go online bragging they got the newest stuff?

If you answered #2, get your butt out there in the mornings, speak up to stockers, managers, etc., network with other collectors you can meet in the stores. (hint - they are looking at the same toys you are).

If you answered #1, with few exceptions like the Naboo Royal Guard and Sidious Hologram, most stuff gets out there in pretty good quantities. For all those who moaned about not getting Dooku or Yoda, they keep shipping them out there. I'm not buying them myself, but somebody has to.

Until you see major pegwarming of Episode One proportions (that hasn't happened yet), you can rest assured that old product will clear and new stuff will come in.

I wish the Wal-Mart here would get done with their Christmas stuff. It seems like all their shipments are centered around Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas stuff... it'll probably be a month or two before a new Star Wars shipment, by then instead of being behind just 4 figures and 2 deluxes I'll probably be behind about 8-10 figures and 4-5 Deluxes. Not too mention the vehicles and such that will be out by then..

Oh, really?
I really ought to order this dang stuff online...but it's like a curse! Every single time I order something online, it appears in stores the very next day! :eek:

I got my TA Anakin's in the last week of July from a specialist shop and I've seen them around in other stores too, it's not hard to find in England actually :)
I would definitely shop online, I got most of my collection online, I got most of my Episode I, most my of POTF2, most of my POTJ & most of my SAGA figures online.

I'm not sure how spread out in Ohio Meijer's are, but they do go all the way down the I-75 corridor, as well as out near Columbus, but I don't know about Cleveland area, I haven't seen any out there.

This is just so strange! I always managed to find all the latest Episode I and POTJ waves when they came out...and all the previous POTJ waves when they came out...so why the hell can't I find this one anywhere???!!!
