Once they start with all the Clone Wars figures I kinda stop buying the figures, well that is in bulk at least. What are some of the new hard to find/get figures. The ones i am talking about are like Ephant Mon, hard ones to get like him. Which ones are hard to get?

Tanus Spijek and J'Quille have been HTF. There seemed to be a mini drought, but stuff is showing up now. It isnt as bad as '03 was, but those have been the hardest to find this year so far.

Well of the Clone Wars line, the Super Articulated Clone Trooper and the Red Arc Trooper have been difficult to find.

I never saw SA clone, Red Arc, or Kit Fisto at retail. Had to get 'em via the secondary market....

There are some that I got lucky enough to find once at regular retail (like Ventress, Durge, concept stormy, R1-G4, etc...). I would consider these fairly difficult to find as well.

really??? well my contact at the swap meet by my house has those figures most of the time. she only charges me about 8 bucks and they are in good conditions; maybe i should pick them up before she stops carrying them.

I would. It would save alot of time and hassel. And if youfind them anywhere else, like ebay or e-tailer, once you add in shipping, the price is higher than that. It sounds like it is worth the deal. And if it is swap, try trading for some of em. :D :beard:

J' quille, Tanus and Rappertunie are impossible to find...Durge and Asajj Ventress are some tough cookies also. Most of these figures just show up in bids...

I was lucky enough and got J'Quille and Rappertunie on Ebay for 16 bucks. + shipping. And that was before they were officially releasaed. I had a feeling that J'Quille would be HTF and I was right. I havent seen him at retail, but have seen Rappertunie and Tanus.

crap, there was a rappertunie at the swap meet last week and i didn't buy it! i am going back there this weekend. I have a few figures i would like to trade, but i don't believe they are worth anything: Endor soldier (with and with out beard), chewbacca, maybe a yoda or 2, and i have a few POTF that were opened but put back in the case.

Tanus - This is the only figure I have never seen on the pegs. But from what others said, Tanus should be coming out again in future waves.

I'd say pretty much everything from 2004 is HTF. Waves have only hit sporadically, at least in my area, so by not camping out 24/7 at retailers chances are you won't get much. True, this year has been better than 2003 but only by a slim margin.

I was able to find all 2003 figures including the CWs, but the toon wars for Yoda and cloney have been tough.

I have never seen the Concept Trooper, red ARC Trooper, or R1-G4 at retail. I had to get R1 off Ebay. Many others I have only seen once: Jabba, J'Quille, Tanus, Luke (not Holographic), BaR2-D2, and SA Clone. I was sure to grab those when I saw them!!!

My WM seems to get 1 or 2 new cases per month, on average. I'll be thankful if that trend keeps going through the Star Destroyer and Endor waves.

well, if finding the arc trooper si that hard, then i am now going to consider myself very lucky that i found both of them.
