So far I've only seen Shirtless Darth Maul at Electronics Botique for $14.99. I'm wondering where everybody else has seen these? How much?

Still haven't seen them at retail. I got mine at NewForceComics.com for less than $10.

The only place I have seen them is in pictures or on ebay. :(

KB, for $13. My report ended up on the SSG news post about this, so you probably know which store. ;)

I've been to two K-Marts in the suburban Chicago area in the last two days and both had at least 3 cases each of the deluxe figures at 9.98.

I got Bacta Tank Luke at Electronics Boutique. They also had three Darth Mauls but I took a look at him and the word "Markdown" popped into my head. As did the words "pegwarmer" and "butt ugly toy". Yeah. I can wait three months and buy all three of them for less than the price it is now.

I live in RI & haven't seen them. There is a K-mart that I check in MA but no deluxe figures. The local K-bee had nothing. It's weird since the Hasbro Co. is in Pawt. RI.

I bought Luke/Bacta Tank and Darth Maul for Sith Worm and myself last night at a K-Mart in Arlington, TX. They had about six or eight of each on a shelf above the peg racks. They were about $10.00 each, so my advice to Sith Worm not to pay $15.00 each paid off. However, I have yet to find Princess Leia and Amanaman. It figures that the one I want most (Amanaman) I cannot find yet!

It seems Shirtless Maul and Bacta Tank Luke shipped earlier than Amanaman and Leia. Thats the reason we havent seen them yet.:cool: Two different waves??

I believe that is the case (no pun intended), Lobito. I believe due to the size of the Bacta Tank blister, the relatively trim Maul blister made a good counterpoint in size. Leia's cannon may make her blister almost as large as Luke's, so the thinner Amanaman would ship with her, allowing an equal number of two different figures to fill the same size case. And I've seen other evidence that this is the circumstance. It's just driving me nuts that I have to wait for Amanaman! But the people I don't feel sorry for are the ones who paid over $40.00 each for these figures to have them shipped in from Hong Kong! Wait till they see the quantities I did at their local K-Mart at $10.00 each!

Found mine at a K-mart last night (nope, not a blue light special :frus: ) $9.98 wasn't bad for the price. There were one of each but I only got the Bacta tank Luke and left the Maul for someone else. I would have gotten him but man, my $$$ has other priorities this time of year. Instead of the usual 1 figure per week (if there are any) I am gonna cut back to a new fig every 2 weeks :confused: Christmas, ya know. Tis only comes but once a year.

Found Bacta Tank Luke at my local Wal-Mart. Problem was, it was the only one, and didn't appear to be in the place where it should have been on the asle.

Actually, I've not seen them anywhere. Because I haven't been looking. I have a set waiting for me at my local comic shop. I'm just taking my time to pick them up.

I found these at WalMart in Greeley, Colorado today. I also noticed...and reported to SSG:D , that there is a card variation on these guys....for those who care. The card number change seem to be with regards to the TM and the addition of the words "Some poses pictured above may require additional support" on the back of the later versions. The figures were $9.96@.

Found 1 each of Luke and Maul at the Toys-R-Us in Hattiesburg, MS yesterday. I got the Luke, passed on Maul.

Bring on FX-7!!!
