I don't have the Dooku figure yet, and most of the people I have talked to while looking for him have the same issue.
Question : What is the figure that you all have seen the most? for me it's Jango Fett. I swear this guy is ever where, and in mass numbers!!! The TRU I first went to had a floor bin 3/4 of the way full of this guy. So I did my part to help make room for the next wave of figures and bought three.
So who do you see the most of? and who is the least?:confused:

For me there's been no sign of Dooku, Royal Guard or Zam.

The figure I've seen most of is without a doubt the Super Battle Droid. I really can't see this guy selling in the quantities they have him in stock, its ridiculous. I went to two TRU stores on Tuesday and they had racks and racks of the fella. Okay, I think you get the picture.

The second most common figure I've seen has been Anakin OPD. Possibly because its a piece of trash.

Jeez, all the figures from the first wave (the basic 14) are plentiful around here with the exception of Padme. She was sold out at 2 stores I went to.

But as for the most, I'd have to say Anakin or Jango Fett. Frickin' everywhere, I tell ya what.

Yep, Anakin (OPD), Jango and C3P0 are flooding shelves here.

Peasant Anakin. It's all I freaking see ANYWHERE here.

What I wouldn't give for there to be Jar Jar's clogging the pegs... :D

I have seen tons of Jar Jar Binkses (Senator), Kit Fistos, and Saesee Tinns. I did manage to find a Super Battle Droid and a Nikto, though.

I thought I made a pretty decent haul at Super Target yesterday when I found Dexter, R2, Kit Fisto, and Saesee Tin - figures I previously hadn't seen anywhere - but I really hit the mother lode today at a Super Wal-Mart.

As I'm walking through the doors I see a guy pushing a basket out to the parking lot and this thing is full to the brim of SW stuff. So I'm thinking Oh great, I bet that guy just cleaned the place out. Much to my surprise though, they had quite a few of almost every single figure (though no Dookus, Royal Guards, Luminaras, Taun Wes, or Geonosians). By and large though the figure I've seen the most is Peasant Anakin, followed by the Battle Droids, then Jango and Boba.

Now if I can just find those last 5 figures, I'll have all the ones worth buying, so far....

There are a ton of Anakin's, Obi-Wan's, and Kit Fisto's in the Dallas area.

I am suprised that everyone is having a tough time finding Dooku's and Royal Guards. I've seen at least 6 of both at a particular KB Toys. Why someone would pay those insane amounts for Dooku's on ebay is beyond me.

I do have a couple of Dooku's for trade if anyone is interested. I have all of the new AOTC figures but I'm looking for a Jorg Sacul from Celebration II. If anyone is going next weekend, we can talk trade.

After being to 3 TRU's around here, all I can say is this:

Make the Jango Fett's STOP!

If they could replace, oh maybe just 10% of the 5000 Jango's warming pegs right now with Yoda, Dooku or the Royal Guard I'd be happy. :)

I've been seeing a lot of Battle Droid, SBD (which is a shame, I think this figure is cool), Anakin Outlander, Kit Fisto, Senator Jar Jar, R2, 3PO, Nikto, Saesee, and Obi-Wan.

I've still not seen Dooku, Royal Guard, Ani Hangar, and a few others, but those are the ones I'm looking for.

BTW Wonderboy, I'm also in the LA area and Boba Fetts, Tuskens, and Typhos are plentiful at the Kmart I was at yesterday. Shaak Ti was plentiful at Wal-Mart.

Out of the dozen or sp stores I've been to since Tuesday I think Peasant Disguise Anakin has become this line's first official pegwarmer! I'm kinda torn on this one myself' I want to hate him for that goofy pose, and the old school style lightsaber feature (which I hated even on the vintage figures, and hope to never see again after Anakin!), but part of me thinks it's kinda cool looking anyway. I chalk it up to nostalgia; I hated the feature way back when, but in a strange way it's interesting to see again.

C3-P0, Anakin, JarJar, Jango, and most of the Alien Jedi were all in abundance at the Toys R Us the other day.

R2, on the other hand was nowhere to be found. And I really searched through bin after bin. Just as I was about to give up, a kindly worker wheeled out another shopping cart of figures. Low and behold there was a few R2s on top along with several Amidala Crofts (Yikes! What happened there, Hasbro?!)

I have seen no Royal Guards, Hanger Anakins, Clone Troopers, or Sandpeople in Drag. None what so ever. Dooku --- who?

Kit Fristo, Anakin, Obi-Wan, 3-CP0 and the Super Battle Droid are clogging the pegs.

The harder to finds are Jar Jar (Jar Jar?) Luminara, Dexter, Dooku, Tusken lady and brood, and the Royal Guard.

It's the main characters that are pegwarming here. Anakin Peasant, Padme, Obi-Wan, C3PO, and Kamino Jango. It's going to be Episode I all over again. I'll probably never see any of the next wave.

I was going to start a new thread about this, but I guess I'll just post it here, anyone need Zam Wessell? I bought an extra as I haven't seen too many of her around.

I am being totally honest & serious here.....

Tonight I went to a WM in a town just south of me & all they had were countless Dooku's, Taun We's, Luminara's, Clone Troopers, etc....

No Dexter that I could see, but it made up for it with all the Dooku's....

Sometimes I think MS is stuck in a wormhole or time warp or something, I mean imagine my surprise when I saw the rack with Dooku dripping from it!!!

Anakin OPD and C-3P0. I havent had any trouble finding Dookus. My Wal-Mart had about 3 pegs full of them Tuesday morning. Although I went back today to buy Zam and saw that there were only a few left.

Around here you are guaranteed to see the following at any store (cept meijer which is total crap and only got one box. idiots they are):

Anakin (disguise)
C3PO (BG version in great supply)
Kit Fisto
Padme (BG and non-BG equally available)
Obi (chase - altho he's dwindling)
R2-D2

Jar Jar is getting close to being a peg-regular. Same with Dexter. The sandperson with child is dwindling away. Used to be an easy find, but lately only one store that I checked today has them.

At the three stores I tried tonight in Holyoke, MA, there were Jar-Jars, Battle Droids, Jedi Niktos, and Saesee Tiins as far as the eye could see. Dexter was also quite plentiful.

All-in-all, I saw less than half of the 27 figures.

I went to 5 different stores tonight here in Milwaukee. Of those stores, here's what I found:

0 of the 5 stores had: Count Dooku, Royal Guard, Anakin -HD, Yoda, Taun We, Luminara

1 or 2 stores had: Tusken Raider, Dexter, Geonosian Warrior, SaeSee Tin

3 or 4 stores had: Padme, Captain Typho, Plo Kloon, Clone Trooper, Zam Wesell, Jar Jar, R2-D2

All 5 stores had the remaining figures.

Hope that helps someone. Good luck!

I'm in Minneapolis, and as far as our local metro area goes I've seen no Dookus, Taun We's, Royal Guards, Luminaras, or Yodas. Give me an hour and I can pretty much find anything else. What gives? Are these guys from a specific case? I've been to too many store too early to be missing out - like its a regional drought or something.

Two questions for y'all:
1) What's the significance of these figs w/inserts? Should we be snarfing them up?
2)Does collection 3 still exist?
