Well, let's here it! Who has 'em? Who dosen't? And any stories you may have about the elusive EP1 figs.
I am currently missing the following MOMC EP1 figures:
Darth Sidious (Holograph)
Naboo Royal Guard
Pit Droid 2-pack
Queen (Naboo Battle Gear)
Now for the kicker.
I HAD all 5 of these MOMC!
So what happened SK? How is it possible that you had 'em and now you don't?
Well, I'm glad you asked!
Back in April 2000, my wife and I were at a comic store and I found these guys just sitting on the pegs. The price was around $10.00 each. So I turned to my wife and told her how hard they had been to find. She then bought them for me as an early birthday present.
A year later we moved to a new place. I went on a trip to South Korea for a few weeks just after we moved. I had put all of my SW figures in the spare bedroom, and closed the curtains to keep out the light and the heat.
Two weeks later I returned home to find all the curtains open in the spare bedroom and my HTF figures SUN BLEACHED sitting in an OVEN of a room.
She had been snooping through the room and opened the curtains to let in some light. She then left the room and closed the door and forgot all about it.
The cards were ruined! I opened them up and traded them, loose, for some other stuff I had been looking for.
So now I continue to hold out hope that TRU will eventually get some cases of these figs at the clearance price of $1.97 each. I just have too much heart-burn paying $20.00 for a SW figure.
Hey, I held out for Swimming Jar-Jar, and foud him for $1.97 (I still got ripped off)!
So what's your story? Are you one of the many, still searching for these guys at rertail? Or did you pay over-inflated prices? Or were you lucky enought to find these at the store years ago?
