Darth Maul
Adi Gallia
Anakin Naboo
Tatooine Darth Maul
Sith Lord Darth Maul
Soft Goods OB1
Naboo Qui-Gonn
Naboo OB1
Captain Tarpals
Boss Nass

As for vehicle/accesories:
Naboo Fighter
Maul's Sith Speeder
Qui-Gonn and Maul's lightsabers
Mos Espa Encounter 3-Pack
Eopie and Qui-Gonn

I don't think retailers are going to forget this glut easily when it comes to ordering Ep2 toys. Hasbro should come up with a way to let the stores return unwanted figures the way they did the horrible, horrible, horrible SOTE crap-figures.:mad:

I didn't realize it until GNT's thread about POTF2 figures, but the EPI are gone here, too! Just POTJ at the normal places. No EPI, no POTF2 (unless you look at drug stores or scalper stores, that is).

GNT's threads were an eye-opener for me. I hadn't realized they're gone since I'm looking for POTJ figs now. It used to be acres and acres of Adi Galias and Capt. Tarpals as far as the eye could see. A lot of the stores have downsized their SW sections, however:( .

What would we do without GNT? ;)

Anyway the Episode 1 figs that warm the shelves at TRU include:

Jedi Braid Obi
Darth Maul Tatooine
Adi Galla
Boss Nass
Ki-Adi-Mundi
Qui-Gon Tatooine

They've been there for half-a-century. But they are starting to clear out slowly. . . .

KayBee Toys, those Queen Amidala Dolls, Soft Goods Wave, Tatooine Showdown, Mos Espa Encounter, Watto, Adi, Naboo Fighter, Darth,Obi,Qui, all varieties, Ani, Queen, Padme, Senetor, Chancellor, Blah Blah Blah, not much in the way of Good Toys, except those Ships @ TRU.

EP1 pegwarmers...Are they still around? I haven't seen one of those since the last TRU clearance sale.

Now if we talk about POTF PWs, we got tons of Mon Mothmas, Lobots and Prunies over here.

Oh I forgot to add at every KB in my area there seems to be enough Mos Epsa Encounter Cinema Scenes and dolls from the Queen Amidala Collection to comfort every child in India and China combined.

Without a doubt, the EP1 line wins the peg warmer discussion of all lines...In my local SW store, EP1 Toys are by far the ones that warm more the pegs.

There's a little clearance bin in front of the Star Wars section at the Toys R Us that has the usual pegwarmers (Adi Galla, Maul Tatooine, Naboo Obi-Wan, Jedi Braid Obi-Wan). Anyway, it has been there for months but surprisingly in the last month the figures seemed to be actually moving out of there. It was then almost near empty.

When I went to that Toys R Us last Thursday they had refilled it to the top. To my consternation I found --------- more Maul Tatooines and Adi Gallas. Curse these infernal figures. I swear Hasbro is still producing more of these suckers to further anger there already frustrated customers. These figures will probably sit there for the next three months. And this is like the third or fourth time this same situation has happened.

:mad:

At the rate those two Darth Mauls are selling, I'd say they'd clear out by the time I have grandchildren. :p

Did you hear TRU is just giving them away now when you buy anything :) But they have to be the EP1 figures from behind the counter :)
