Don't know if this has gotten around yet, but...

I was just over at Fry's shopping, and I noticed that they had ROTS minis there for $9.99. To make the deal even sweeter, I managed to dig around a bit, and pull out a gold Yoda, Darth Vader and Anakin saber. (Sadly, there weren't any gold Obi-Wan minis left... but plenty of the regulars.)

Ten bucks is a great deal for these, so I thought you guys might like to know.

man how things have changed... I remember just last year when most minis were going for at least $40 each and the mace windu mini was going for $100+.

I mentioned the $10 Minis in the LA Just Found thread, didn't know there were any regular Obi-Wans there, I would have bought that for sure. Did you go to the Burbank Frys PF, and if so, where were they located? I only saw the display by the Cust Service area.

The minis were in two spots here, pretty much in and around their weird toy section.

There are no minis at all in the LAX frys.
The Burbank and City of industry Frys has about 500 minis each.
But the few golds they both had have been snatched up by me,so don`t even waste your gas if its gold you seek with those stores.

alright, good to hear that, then. though you would think that since it was dropped from such a height in the senate chamber that there would be even more dents.

You can still get them from Fry's website, www.outpost.com (http://www.outpost.com). $9.99. You can't specify if you want a gold one though.

schway! thanks for the link! they have yoda's incorrectly listed as vader's, however.

they have a vader 0.45 scale for $9.99 also, is this a mistake?

i'm not sure what you mean but on the fry's site, yoda's is incorrectly listed as vader's and there are actually two "vader's".

At Fry's, I saw Obi-Wan,Yoda, Anakin and Vader from episode III. (BTW, The other day we went back, and my Fry's still had a decent pile of them, so they're still out there if anyone's looking.)

I hit Fry's yesterday and they had a handful of ROTS Vaders and one empty box for a Yoda one - what kind of a moron risks his freedom over a tiny lightsaber replica that's been cut down to a $10 price?

Anyway, the Vader one is extremely "meh" just as I feared it would be, the source material is just no good. I only wanted the Obi-Wan version anyway though.

I mean as opposed to the mini the 0.45 version, I assume this is bigger than the mini that they also have for $9.99
