don't resort to ebay just yet.

on another board, i read reports that tarkin, ask aak and meena are showing up in TRU's as part of the "mega buy 2 packs". but even if those reports are false, the tarkin wave is still shipping. the cases (collection 2 wave 6) with 501 clones and holo plo, aayla have meena tillis in the case as well. and collection 2 wave 6 rev 2 contains 1 ask aak, 1 tarkin along with 2 tact ops troopers, 1 wookiee gunner.

I saw Meena Tillis on the pegs at Target this morning, so those figures are starting to ship again now. Just keep an eye out. :)

even more rare than the tarkin wave... another star wars toy collector in memphis ?

over the last week i've seen meena tills at the bartlett walmart and target stores on hwy 64. there is one in each case of the new collection 2 assortment.

as figrin bran stated, the other two are supposedly in the next wave, but as far as i know, that revision has not yet hit this area.

I just read about the two packs at Toys R Us, and I am elated. I have one of the three, but I still need Tarkin and one of the others.

If they are shipping with the last five, that is wonderful too. Maybe I can get them all one morning and be done for the year.

Yeah, I finaly broke down and got one of Ebay from a seler in Hawaii. The price wasn;t that bad since with shipping it was 6.95, but I couldn't wait any longer. My mouth has been watering for this guy since I saw the pics of him in March.

Now all need is Ask Aak to complete the wave.

The case with Meena has shown up several times in my area, however, I have yet to come across the collection 2 revision assortment. Honestly, given the time of year, the fact that they are about to launch a new line and the fact that stores' inventories are still relatively high, I don't expect to see that assortment.
The bit about the two-packs is news to me, though, and gives me hope especially since I've come across some of these with the AT-TE gunner in them.

these 2 packs people are talking about, is it just a box that holds 2 carded figures that you can remove and have 2 normal carded figures? and what stores are carrying these?

Toys R Us carries these and you are exactly right. Two figures come in a two pack and they seperate into two.

Try checking KMart. They seem to be getting the Tarkin wave lately.

Today I finally bought the Tarkin fig. at the Walmart in Reading, MA. They only had Tarkin out of the 3 Senators, and had several of them. This is the 5th time I have seen the wave and finally bought because I had them price match the K-Mart ad and got buy one get one free. I think the stuff is finally starting to come out of the back rooms to keep the shelves full for the holidays. Not sure why people are making such a big deal out of it as none of the figures are what I would consider great. Good luck to all still looking.

Good luck to all still looking.It's not that the figures are such a big deal, (though I think they are nice), it's that the original Tarkin wave was fairly hard to find the first time around. Came and left pretty quickly -- I only ever saw the Tarkin figure one time very early on.

I'm glad that Hasbro had the smarts to re-pack these in a later wave. Tarkin's an iconic character, it'd be nice if everyone that wanted one had a better chance of finding him.

Meena Tills is warming the pegs at the Target in Hattiesburg, MS. (Still passed on it, too.) I saw Ask Aak there a month ago and bought him, the only time I've seen that one. I have yet to actually see Tarkin on store shelves.

I found this wave at a KMart on Black Friday. Was able to pick them up and some other HTF ones for their BOGO sale.

I have never been able to find this wave at the store. Now, TRU is coming out with them in a two pack...isn't this what they typically do with peg warmers? A little frustrated with this one. Hope to find them. If I do, only four more to finish the ROTS basic figures (not bad considering that I have been finding them one at a time)

TheDarthVader
11-27-2005, 12:24 PM
I have NEVER seen any of these three on any peg anywhere! I still need all of them. If I can find them, I would only need five figures to complete my ROTS collection...the last five figures. I hope I can find these soon.

I found 6 Tarkins today when I got into my Wal-Mart. Scalper came in and bought all of them. I said to him "Grab em all up, don't leave any for anyone else who might want one". Did I ever want to deck the guy, but I need to keep working.

so today while christmas shopping i picked up the TRU mega 2-pack with tarkin and ask aak. It figures that i would find them after getting tarkin on ebay.:rolleyes:

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! I just found several figures that I needed today. I found the following at a Target: holo aayla, holo plo koon, r4, vader's clone, heavy wookie gunner, red guard (needed one loose), and meena tills! Now I just need tarkin and ask aak to complete my figure collection for the year. (Well and those twins 2 packs.) I am going to hold out for tarkin and ask until I see them at TRU, and I will buy them in the cheaper two pack. :)

No Tarkins anywhere in Colorado. I've found the Senators several times -but No Tarkins. We'll hes bound to show up sometime (I hope).

Tarkin is shipping with the seperation of the twins, so head out there.

I found my Tarkin wave finally! Got Tarkin at Wal Mart with the Seperation of the Twins in Champaign, IL. Then, driving back to Chicago, in Mattson TRU, found Aak Ask in the Mega Buy 2 pack. Since I had already found Tils at Target in NW Indiana, I finally finished it!!!! Unfortunately, I didn't get a cool 2nd figure with Aak Ask (is that his name???). Now, I can start my Crime Dramas with my extra Jimmy figure!

Now, only need the Wookie Commando, Commander Bly, Grievious Bodyguard, and the Orange person ((((no idea the name right now, too lazy to look it up)...Then I can put these figures aside and get ready for the Sagas

He's awesome!!!

He's awesome!!!Well that clears that up then Jay. I found 3 Tarkins at WM today along with TONS of the Separation packs. Are the others in that wave shipping as well? I've got them already but I can keep a look out if they are.

I'm glad to hear that Tarkins are showing up again. I got mine the first time, and I hadn't seen them again until just recently. He is pretty awesome, considering he is in ROTS for a few seconds.

KH was able to get me all 3 of them months ago because I hadn't seen any of them in my area.

If I recall correctly you stated they were in a jacket pocketGah!! There you go again knowing my collection better than me. Maybe that's a sign that I'm starting not to care about what I buy.:confused: (case in point I gave CS1138 a bag full of figures that I had bought two of because I forgot what I had bought) I hope not but one never knows.

I saw the Tarkin wave at WM the other nite. Also, I saw my first Red Guard since "opening nite". It reminds me of Episode I when suddenly the "VHTF" Maul was everywhere.

I have yet to see Tarkin although I did see Meena Tills at a Target. My Walmart hasn't put out the Separation wave yet but I'm almost certain they have them. My store has two huge stack of toy boxes under the garden section patio and I have a feeling they're not going to put them out until after Christmas. I keep checking back to see if they've moved them yet.

I saw Tarkin and Aak at Target yesterday. First time I have seen them in months. I know Tills is shipping in a different assortment and I have yet to see that one again.
