Let me tell you a little story:
yesterday we decided to go off Star Wars hunting...trying to track down some of the figures that have been eluding us!! Weeeeeellll...we started out in our home town..well sorta..we have to t...ravel 15 miles to the nearest store!...we looked in all the local stores including WM..and NOTHING!..so we went another 25 miles to the next town...we visited 2 walmarts,1 target, 1 K-mart and a couple of DG and NOTHING!! SOOOO..we decided to go to the capital... of kansas Topeka...somewhere you don't want to go on a saturday afternoon!!..so we started out on the 70 mile trip...halfway to Topeka we got a major blowout...in the middle of nowhere..we didn't even have a good spare tire...we had to use the crappy small hotwheels size temporary tire!!!...so after a lengthy discussion with a local sheriffs deputy (who was real nice) we continued on to Topeka...against the sheriffs advice, because of the tire.
We got to Topeka...and after 2 WM super centers, 1 Target, 1TRU, 1 super K-Mart, 2 DG and we even tried tuesday morning store...ABSOLUTLEY ZILTCH...NOTHING SQUAT!!!!...everything was gone...thats even if they had pegs for Star Wars...one store (WM) had 3 pegs...squeezed in between LOTR and marvel figures...that had 2 hoth soldiers...and thats it!!...So after 8 hours and way over 200 miles we finally got home with a couple of figures we already had, but we got them for some peeps on here coz they needed them, sometimes we wonder if it is worth all the hassle...we almost got to the point of putting everyting on ebay, and be done with it!!..But of course we are not...although we could do with the space LOL (so my wife says)
Has anyone else had any huge probs trying to get these things??? I am just real happy there are a few nice ppl on here that will trade and not rip you off!!
