Okay so this isn't in the right forum but due to the time sensitivity and popularity of this item I felt the need to post here as well. (besides I am the moderator in this forum and will readily delete it this coming week but thought you guys should know)

As of this post I can confirm that all Ames have the jedi starfighter and are putting them on the shelf right now. I bought one today (saved a little because they were having a 15% off sale as well) it normally costsd 21.99. If you can get there tonight it will be 18.69 retail. Huury before they close. They sholud have plenty so don't worry aboout them running out neccessarily but you can save more tonight (about 4.00)
I physically went to three of them and they all had at least 6 or more of them.

You poor people who don't have an AMES by you. (it's a cryin' shame) Ames is like a smaller version of K-mart. And yes I was completely suprised to hear of this info. One of my collecting buds told me and so I went and as previously mentioned they are all getting it in. (again according to the manager of the one closest to me it was determined by looking at the receiving orders and shipping dates from their warehouses that indeed they have a plentitude of the JS)

to boot, it's only selling for 21.99 instead of TRU's appalling 24.99. (I got it over the weekend during a 15% off sale and got it for even less at 18.69+tax) as far as I knew Ames stores were all over the country, but if not well sorry for those of you who can't benefit, but for those who can, go and get it there for $3 dollars cheaper (they also have layaway as well if you need it)

good luck!

I went to an Ames in Medina, NY (35 miles Northeast of Buffalo, NY) and fainted at what I saw. First of all, it is the only retail store located among miles and miles of farm pastures and forest. They had 2 cashiers in the entire store, and I think they outnumbered the customers.

Anyhow, I went to the toy aisle and my mouth dropped open when I saw 4 pegs of the hard to find Deluxe Amanamans and Slave Leia with Cannon for clearance price of $3.97! :eek: I had looked about 2 weeks earlier and I knew that hadn't anything beyond some Fode and Beeds and Sebulbas. They must have just gotten those from Hasbro. I picked up one of each. I feel ashamed for paying a "clearance price" of $11.10 at Target last week. :frus:

And as jedi master sal reported they do have the Starfighters in. I will wait until I get more dinero to buy these babies. :greedy: Lord knows, they will still be there a couple of weeks from now.

Yeah, it is everywhere. I posted about this on 4/09 in the other Ames Jedi Starfighter thread. I picked up one of each that day. I guess I just forgot to copy it here.
