Found the preview figures today at Rockaway Mall (NJ) TRU. Apparently the stockpeople are unaware of the 3/16 release date Hasbro's lawyers concocted in the E2 master license agreement. Try your TRUs.

I was at my Local TRU.I got an FX-7 but other than that all the rest were JarJars(about 7 figs on the pegs).I'll keep my eyes open,Wal-mart is probably my best bet

What!? I found no preview figures anywhere! Now I am getting frustrated...:frus: Does anyone know how hard these are going to be to find?

I'm hoping that they will be everywhere so that people can get them. If my luck is true. Our Wal-Mart won't get them until next year. :mad: :rolleyes:

Well I was lucky enough to get mine last night. There were 2 unopened cases of them sitting on a pallet. A fellow collector and myself got them off the pallet and opened them up. We got what we wanted and put the rest of them up on the pegs for everyone else. If my Wal Mart here in Raleigh has them I am pretty confident that just about any other Wal Mart would have them. This is a nice Wal Mart, but their SW selection has never been anything to write home about.
Good luck to all of you hunting for these!!

Oh God bless my TRS, it's remodoeling right now :rolleyes:

Oh well, guess I'll try to take a peek and see if they've finished enough to put anything out.

Drove down to the Tru in South Portland Maine this morning looking for an AT ST.no luck.
But I did get the four Sneek Peek Figs:D

Will now not only be known as the "Rock and Roll Capital of the Wrold", but also as the "Most Street Date Conscious Region in the World". Jedi Drew and I have hiked all over the area and have turned up nary a preview figure nor a Jedi Starfighter. Oh, well.

Both the TRUs in my area had some nice stuff, the Tessek wave and FX wave, but no preview figs! Arg. And I also didn't find them at Wal Mart. Waaaaaaah!:cry:

BTW, just wanted you all to know that I went back to TRU where I bought the preview figs on Friday and they were all sold out. One of the cashiers told me they all sold out within 3 hours of getting them. I must have gotten there just in time. If you see these, don't wait to get them!

I found my sneak preview figures at Wal Mart on Saturday for $6.44. The heck with waiting for March 16!

What else was displayed with the Preview figs when you found them? I am so sad........ no preview figs for me... I will have to use the internet and pay outrageous shipping and handling...

The preview figures were mixed in with the standard POTJ figures. No special section...yet. I expect that to come next month.

The "Preview Figures" are meant to be just that: preview figures. That's why they are available NOW. No need to wait until the common street date which is actually in April; not May 16th. Do you guys pay any attention to the "news" found on the SSG Home Page? And I'll smite the next moron that pays more than $6.44 for one of these, which in my opinion, is too much to begin with... 'cept for the (R3) 'droid... 'Droids rock...

Yes, I do pay attention to dates and news releases on SSG and other SW sites, and the "official" release date for the preview figures is Saturday, March 16. Many stores in different part of the country jumped the gun by releasing the figures a week or more early.
