I was at a local Wal-mart yesterday, and stopped to check out the action figures.

They had a ton of Taun We, Royal Guard, and Luminara Unduli (ok, not a ton, but about a dozen each).

So for those who couldn't find them on the original release, they're starting to show up:)

I also found these figures, but noticed only 1 Endor Rebel trooper and 1 Qui-Gon Jinn. Could these be the new "rare" figures? And I didnt see any Supreme Chancellor Palpatine figures, although he is on the back of the cards.

In Northern NJ, Taun We, Royal Guard, and Luminara Unduli are all you see. It seemed to happen about a week ago.

Little Falls has a TRU??? Do you mean the one on Rt. 46 down the street from the mall or another one. I use to go to Montclair College. I thought that one was in Totawa! Not being anal, Just courious if there is another in that area.:D :D :D

All of those peg warmers are " for the children ". You know the ones that Hasbro is always talking about that buy Star Wars figures. Maybe they are waiting until after they see the movie to buy their toys.
Yeah, for the children and the parents that buy them for their kids.
They are what make up the bulk of the purchases, not collectors.

Anakin, Taun and Luminara are starting to show up around here at the K-Marts. I've seen a couple Royal Guards around, but not many. There has been a dry spell on Yoda and Dooku that has been endless thus far.

The "rare" figs...sorry. The rebel trooper (w/ goatee), Qui-Gon, Massiff, Orn Free Ta, are all 2 per case, and the fillers are 2 royal guards, Taun We, and Lumanari...or however you spell it. Palpatine will be out later this month or next in aother case, probably with the 2nd rebel trooper (clean shaven) and filler figures.

The rare fig I'm having trouble finding the bloody version luke bespin. He comes 1 per case and some one in the forum said that he's in a differnt figure assortment packed solo with Mace, Vader, and final duel Jango.

Hope this clears up the questions.

DID YOU FIND ANY BESPIN LUKES OR ENDOR REBEL SOLDIER? WHAT ASSORTMENT IS THE MASSIF PACKED IN? I did not find any of those yet.

Its nice to have the target HQ down town Minneapolis and a huge store to boot right with it:)

The break down at the Target store in Minneapolis was:

3 Vader Bespin, 4 Mace, 3 Jango final battle, 2 Luke non-bloody.

The bloody luke can be found in, so I've heard and read, in a case that has

4 Vader Bespin, 4 Mace, 3 Jango final battle, 1 Luke bloody.


2 Royal Guards, 2 Orn Free Ta, 2 Qui-Gonn, 2 Rebel troopers w/goatee (I personally think these guys will be the hard to find figs, once the clean shaven troopers come out, sort of like the clean vs. dirty scount trooper) 2 Massiff w/ Geon. warrior, 1 Taun We, and 1 Luminari

Hope this helps.

Good luck. And if run into or hear of any case variations, I'll post it.

I found everything but Bespin Luke, Vader, and Mace at Wal-Mart in Southern IN today. The TRU said they had them over the weekend but sold out already. They also said they would have plenty of all figs as time goes on, so just be patient. Of course, if you're looking for variants as well as regulars, you might have problems. I don't know.

Yea I agree, give it some time and you'll find plenty.

Once the movie hits, the kids start to scream for figs, you'll find everything on the pegs...and with only getting 50 odds figs this year, there will be plenty to go around.
