View Full Version : Which Figures are Potential Peg-warmers?
05-21-2002, 03:39 AM
I just stopped by the busiest Wal-mart here in Jacksonville, Fl...and found that there were several AOTC figures remaining after the openning week-end rush so I made a count of what was left here goes...(in order of most peg-warming potential to least but still available)... Clone Trooper (112)...Zam Wesell (104)...C-3PO (108)... Padme Amidala (92)...Anakin O.P. (74)...Battle Droid (56)... Super Battle Droid (31)...Kit Fisto (28)... Royal Guard (28)...Nikto Jedi (14)...Saesae Tinn (16)...Shaak Ti (9)...Boba Fett (1)... Endor Soldier (1)...and lastly Jango Fett(1). So, There You have it this store does the most sales of any Wal-mart in My area so I would think this would be about the Normal range of figures found in the bigger cities... but if not let me know. Thank You!!! :)

Here in HK, at one store, it was a plague of Senator Jar-Jar's plugging up the pegs.
At another store, it's a lot of the extra Jedi Council members . . .

In My local shop we have an abundance of Kit Fisto, Tusken Mother, Battle Droid and Padme arena battle.
Never even seen a Shaak Ti or Nikto yet

Here in the Uk we have shelves, pegs and bins full off OPD Ani, Chase Obi, and Jango (escape)!!! There's tonnes of them and naff all else.
I know Toys'R'U have loads but as I can't drive they're not very easy to get to!

Down in the south of the UK, we have bucket loads of
Jango (kamino), S-Battle Droid, Obi (chase), Anakin (OPD), Kit Fisto & C-3PO. Bloody things are everywhere.

I'll second that, a bit further up the UK in east anglia there are also a load of Padme's and Jango Fett KE clogging up the pegs so that nothing else gets put out...

Around here, you can more or less find everything abundant, except for Yoda and Dooku. The new waves are having trouble coming out also... I seem to get them like 2 weeks later, and there's only one or two cases, and die-hard collectors have bought them by the time the sun rises :-/

The main characters seem to be in abundance. I live in CT, around here there are a ton of Obi-wans, Pesant Ani, Padme, both regular and super battle droids, C-3PO, R2-D2 and Zem Wessel. Surprisingly the clone troopers are becoming a rare find.

Peasant Anakin, Kamino Jango and Coruscant Obi-Wan are all I see here.
05-21-2002, 02:39 PM
All i ever see around me is Anakins, Padmes, Obi-Wans, Zams , and Clonetroopers.

In my area Anakin OPD and the Battle Droids are the über-pegwarmers, although that darn Zam Wesell is really starting to crowd the aisles too over the past couple of weeks.
I predict by the time Episode III comes out tons of stores will still have Anakin OPD in stock, trying to get rid of them for .99 each or something, or giving them away free with every SW purchase.

OPD Anakin, Battle Droid, and Padme mostly.

Nobody's mentioned Captain Pegwarmer himself yet? Captain Typho is everywhere here. We also have lots of Padmes, C-3POs, various odd Jedi, and Clone Troopers. We're running out of OPD Anakin and Chase Obi-Wan, believe it or not.

Here in Sunny Florida... Dooku, Yoda, Obi-Wan C. C., Boba K.E., R2-D2 C.S., and Jango K.E. are Flying off the shelves almost as fast as they put them up! :D Zam Wesell and the Clone Trooper are fast becoming a plague! I spoke with one of the stock-men at Wal-mart and was told that his department manager will not put up any new waves of Star Wars figures until the two palets of collection 1 wave 1 and collection 2 wave 1 are gone from the back store room and even then to under-stock all future waves until the hanging figures (zam, Anakin OP, Cone Troopers, etc.) are sold down... He told me that the palpatine wave is in and that employees are already going thru the boxes so that when the time comes to hang the figures there probably won't be any of him or the other high demand figures left! :frus: There just has to be a solution to this mess ! Maybe people will pick up on Zam next paycheck or something...:cry:

Did my part and bought a Zam yesterday- I'm in California though, so no help to you, lobster-man. Sorry.
05-21-2002, 05:40 PM
I'm always seeing Padme, Kit Fisto, C-3PO, and Ani Peasant.
I think the Taun We trio will soon become major pegwarmers.
Hopefully the Mace and Orn waves will soon clog the pegs here. :)

Thanks goes out to Jaina Solo for taking a bold step forward toward finding a solution if not a cure for this out-break of the Zam Wesell Plague... I feel that this is a nation-wide epidemic and hopefully collectors and fans everywhere will feel the same sense of Pride and Responsibility to follow Solo's heroic actions and buy a peg-warmer!!!...!:D All joking a-side Jaina Solo's reply lightened my day, Thank You!:)

The usual 3CPOs, Kit Fristos, Typhos, Peasant Anakins warm the shelves in Western New York.
A sure bet for a future pegwarmer would be Mace Windu. TRU had the Bespin Luke wave out and while there were only 2 Lukes on the pegs, a handful of Vaders and a few more Jangos, there were tons of Windus to be snatched.
