I went to a WalMart in Northern Indiana yesterday. I was very disturbed to find a few Nemodian Commanders (in horrible condition) and nearly 200 VADERS!!!!!!! WTF......I am not exagerating about this either. Anyone else run into this problem?

Yeah it seems that Collection 1 which I think contains vader, anakin, emperor and other are flooding the shelves. On the plus side, the stores by me are flooded with SA Clones.

Man, I thought this was a thread devoted to a new line of figures based on the godawful Galaxy of Fear novels. :)

But seriously, I think they're shipping solid cases of Vader now, since they didn't learn from the debacle a few years back when they shipped solid cases of Maul. (At least there were two Mauls in the first year of the TPM line, so there were two different figures in that particular case.)

This would have been a good move a few months ago, when they were somewhat hard to find. But, this is overkill! Stop shipping Vader, Obi-Wan, and all versions of Neimoidians and Palpatines!!!

You know it. Vader was no where to be seen for the longest time. Now you can't go to a store and not see him. I never thought Vader would become a pegwarmer among the likes of Nem. Warriors and Palpatines. It makes you wonder what the people at Hasbro are thinking. It's absurd that they are shipping entire cases of him. Its a crazy world! :crazed:

I think this is only shipping to WMs. Two local stores got in multiple Vader cases over two months ago and now there are almost none left. They've sold better than I thought.

I've seen them abundant at Target and TRU too. Instead of the final five figures I need (501st, Holo Aayla, Holo Plo Koon, R4, and the #68 Wookiee) I see rows of Vader, and now the black variant Clone Pilot is starting to become a pegwarmer.
