I went to 15 different stores 4/23 were I did get everything but 1 figure that still eludes me. No it's not Dooku, I could not find one stinkin' Battle Droid WITH a BG card. Sickening. :rolleyes: :cry:

All of the figures I bought in TRU yesterday had the BG card:

Obi Wan
Jango Fett
Boba Fett
Shaak Ti
Kit Fisto
Battle Droid
Super battle Droid
Plo Koon

then my girlfriend went to Walmart after work and brought me all of these, none of which had BG cards:

Count Dooku
Anakin HD
Yoda
Obi Wan
Jango Fett
Padme

I dont know which will be rare or harder to find, and I dont care, in my most honest opinion the only thing they are good for is for when you need to go to the bathroom and you have no toilet paper.

Yeah, I was looking for a BG BD yesterday for a friend, looked through over 300 figures and even though a large portion were BD figures, none had the BG.

However, in my area, Dooku is the rarest.

Okay, newbie question I guess, but what's a BG card? Is there a noticeable difference between BG and non BG?

BG = background as in the background inserts in some of the figures.

All my TRU has are BG BDs and SBDs. I kind of like the BGs but wish they were made in full color and not that old, faded-looking bluish shade.

Yeah the Dooku is the hardest figure to find here in Indianapolis. Especially a one with a bg card. Someone offered to trade me a Dooku with bg card on Midnight Madness for my Luminara. And I declined.


She is seeming pretty tough to find also.

Beware, Dooku doesn't come on a BG card, from what I've been told by our distinguished variations editor, Grand Admiral Thrawn. Only figs 1 through 16 had them, and Dooku is #27.

Thrawn answers this question: http://www.figures.com/databases/action.cgi?setup_file=ssnews2.setup&category=starwars&topic=31&show_article=186

Thrawn's list of all the BG and non-BG carded figures out now:

Okay, man I feel dumb, but does anyone have a link to a pic of a figure with the "BG" card? I have 7 of the new figures and they all just have the slate blue background....nothing too special really.

Yo, I'll trade you a BG Battle droid for a Dooku......

If I can find one......I actually thought I saw a couple like this....

I haven't seen SaeSee Tiin, Nikto, or Jar Jar with the backgrounds. Do you have any proof of this BanthaPooDoo? If you do have them, I'd be willing to buy them from you or trade something.

Personally I dont even care for the BGs unless its on a figure that I want (cuz I dont want all 27.......yet). So unless I want the fig, BGs don't matter. And I really won't go out of my way to get BGs. If its there its there.

Just picked up an R2-D2 with round-peg on legs and no BG. Found like 3 like this between 2 stores (other 3 stores I checked never had the round-peg R2s). Tons of star peg R2s though.

Which reminds me. Is the round-peg or star-peg hardest to find? Around here its the round-peg, but I want to make sure. I want to open my star-peg R2, but want to be fully sure so I don't screw myself later.

I just don't care for cards.....I like to smell and display my figures......

Got this information from Rebelscum so I dont know how accurate it is...........

I saw it on rebel scum too. . .and they were still asking for proof of these three figures. I think its nonsense. If they existed. . .we would have heard about it here. . .and there would have been a thread about them. If anyone does get a scan though. . .share the wealth. . .a pic is worth a thousand words.

I don't know either, I guess anything is possible. Still I don't think they exist. There are no pictures of them and no reports of finding them. Every report has stated that only the first 16 have been made with BG and they have all been found. While these are rare, they have been found in large quantities. So, I do not think that Nikto, Jar Jar, and Sae See Tiin have the background. I think it's just hearsay and a roomer mixed with hysteria and stress.

sorry, i thought it was rare too until i saw about 10 at the local TRU. and i only saw R2s w/ BG at kaybee. i heard that Dexter with BG is the hardest to find.
