    um, im not sure what you mean by we, people in canada, or every sw fan round the world? if the latter, then, i believe that i, and any others in sierra vista az, will not be seeing anything but the usual peg warmers...

    He's referring to us Canadians since this is a Canadian forum.
    But I agree with both of you nonetheless.
    I'm skeptical we'll see much... but I'm hoping

    Wal of doubt

    Hopefully Walmart will come through with the new stuff. There's no way I can pay TRU prices for 20+ new figures.

    Im counting on Walmart to get the stuff also. I did notice today where the scant few star wars figures were, that they had cleared a 4 foot section about 5 pegs high around it and spread the figures over the pegs. I hope this is them getting ready for the new stuff. And you are right about those TRU prices!!! I could almost pay the american price plus shipping and it would be the same price.

    How bout

    Seeing if we could get some kind of e petition, to show TRU that there's lots of serious SW fans that would be happy to have a good selection available at a fair price(or at least let them know that if the price doesn't come down, there's no real point in stocking them anymore)?? I mean, 15 freaking dollars a figure is totally outlandish and ridiculous, especially when you contrast the US price vs the Canadian price, given that most other toys seem to suffer a much lighter markup. TRU as a company is pretty arrogant. Especially given how the AOTC stuff is smaller and lighter, and somehow still more expensive. The prices on the figs are making me a lot less likely to even want them, and that's sad. Woooooo!!!

    TRU isn't that badly priced. i'm glad its not 11.99 anymore though. i just wish we got everything, even some of the exclusives.
