I have been looking for an Acklay for a long time now. I would rather not pay 25.00 for him. However, I really want one. Can anyone tell me whether Hasbro has any intention on shipping him to stores or have they stopped production altogether? Please help me.

I've said time and time again (if they still have them) You can get an Acklay for $16.00 there as long as you don't need a mint box (which is close enough to mint). A mint one is $18.00.

They are still out there... clogging the shelves at $14.99 where you can find them, but this is (as I have stated before) the AAT of the Saga line. They are out there, but the distribution is poor and if a local store has not picked this one up by now... it probably won't as they will probably just restock their shelves with the newer waves of toys.

If Yestertoys has them... I think they should. they weren't that expensive. Jedi Drew and I both got ours for under $20 each with shipping included.


Confirmed this for you: THEY ARE STILL IN STOCK AT YESTERTOYS! Do not waffle on this decision. Get it now!

okay... but see- that's YOUR area. We haven't had a single Acklay in the Cleveland Area this whole time. :(

It took forever for them to get to Columbus. I waited and waited and finally said, "to hell with it!" and ordered it from Yestertoys. Day after i got it in the mail, i found it at wally world. My friend was laughing hysterically at me. That was before I hit him with Obi-Wans lightsaber box and ran giggling down the toy aisle. :D

yeah... but then there are peolpe like me and Drew who got their's and STILL haven't seen one in the area!

You either fall into "have" or "have not". I'd rather be a have... regardless of seeing it on the shelf a short time after receiving it through the mail. :D

I have only seen it once in St. Louis. It was at Wal Mart and they were gone within two days.

I saw them a couple of times actually. The first time it was at Target, and both my brother and myself got the last two. After that I didn't see it for a couple of months until like 6 turned up at a Walmart and hung around there for a couple of weeks.

I found one at my TRU over the weekend @ $4.98ea. They look like they were hidden in the back for months.

Acklays have only been seen at Wally-World around here and nowhere else. They've gotten about two shipments of them, once in August and the other in late October. They lasted about a few weeks but have since disappeared.

I agree completely. I'm glad I didn't pay full price or I'd feel raped without lube :eek:

Reeks @ $2.50 each? Where? When? I wouldn't mind having one, but not at full price! :greedy:

$2.50 Reeks. . . and actually seeing an Acklay at retail!!!! I am obviously living in a bubble!!!! I have never seen an Acklay in my area, and I've only seen Reeks as low as the $9.98 TRU price. Please let me in on the $2.50 secret!!!

I was aware of Shopko (like Kmart to local to the midwest) dumping their reeks at $4.58 on clearance.

An Acklay in a very beat-up box lingered at a local Wal Mart for weeks. I kept putting buying it off but it was gone. And that was two months ago. Haven't seen one since.

One mainstream retailer purported to have them here in the UK but never had any in stock. Haven't ever seen one.

Want one now!

I have been to a number of WalMarts in the southeast and have yet to find an Acklay or a Ephant Mon :(

Decided to resurrect this thread as I am considering going to ebay for this beast.

Did they ever release the Acklay??!!?? Has anyone seen it since this thread started back in December??!!??!!

I love the hunt for figs - but this one is right there with Ephant - did they really make it?

Thoughts...

I physically touched the Acklay's box, does that count??

Seriously, I haven't seen one since in any store (retail or hobby) since late last fall (October or November.) I now wish I'd picked up one to fight Obi-Wan on my coffee table!!

Ephant Mon exists, too! I found two at a Target in late January or early February. I danced a little jig in the aisle!

I too, saw one (only one) in a local Walmart, but put off buying it. I finally bought a loose one on Ebay. With shipping, the cost will come about the same a retail.

I hear a lot of people complain about Ebay, but if you are careful and patient, and if you are a loose collector (shipping tends to be cheaper!), you can do all right there.

sorry about not telling about the Reek thing It was a while ago and our Target hadn't sold like2 so they went on sale for 13 and eventually 3 of them made it down to 2.50.... they weren't there long after :) Luckly my younger brother that can't earn enuf money to buy more than maybe about 2 or 3 figures a month was happy to get a big thing cheap

Ahhh, the good ole elsuive Acklay. I finally gave in and ordered it with the Reek as a 2 pack from entertainment earth. I saw one about a month ago at a collectible shop for $50. IMO, that's a bit step to pay even if I didn't have one.

I'm tempted to set him up fighting Ephont Mon. Kind of an elusive figure vs. elusive beast kind of motif.

We had quite a few Acklays in this area, I managed to pick one up for $11 at Target, they were still some on clearance at $8, but that was back in like August or September.

Until VERY recently, any Zellers I've been to has always had an Acklay or two kickin' around.

Dude!!! I can't believe you didn't just get it from Yestertoys! I think they still have a non-mint box one for $16.00!!! Doesn't anyone around here listen to ANYTHING I say?? :rolleyes:

I have only seen one Acklay at a retail store, and that was at a Wal-Mart up in the northwoods of Wisconsin. I picked it up late last year. I have yet to see any at a retail store in Illinois.

JEDIPartner -

Yestertoys no longer has the Acklay. I certainly wish I had gone through them some time ago. The going price on ebay seems to be $20. Might be worth it considering the rarity at retail.
