Thread: Jackpot!!!

    Jackpot!!!

    Well, I came home from work tonight and started reading some of the new threads on here. Saw one about Wal-Mart removing figures off of the pegs and suddenly stocking the Bespin line. So I decided to take a trip and see what new stuff ISN'T on the shelf like I always do.

    "JACKPOT!!!"....

    ...Is what I said when I saw the shelves and pegs. Bespin? No. But close enough.

    Found 4 HD Anakins, 3 Yodas, 2 Taun We's, and 1 Royal Guard. (Yes, funny it was in those exact numbers)

    First I grabbed all of those at once and stacked them up. Deciding Taun We isn't that great and I already have one, I hid the 2 Taun We's (might want em later). Then I decided I only needed an extra HD Ani for me and my friend, same with Yoda. So I hid the 1 Yoda and 2 HD Ani's (same reason as Taun We). Royal Guard was mine though, I didn't have one period. Called my friend, said "Woohoo!" and went to his house.

    Now a thought to horde them crossed my mind but I realize that I don't need them, I don't scalp on eBay, but someone I know might need one.

    Before you decide I'm being unfair by hiding them, listen to this. I have decided that tomorrow I'm going back and will probably camp the isle for awhile in search of some kids looking at StarWars stuff. At that time I will pull them out and give each kid one of those figures until the figure stash has depleted (cept for the ones I got of course). I figure its the best way to avoid scalpers (unless scalpers are that young) and it helps a kid get a figure his parents would end up buying off ebay or maybe he would just never get one. So thats my special gift to the StarWars fans out there.


    BTW, sorry for the long post , just had to share

    WAY TO GO! At first I was upset when i read that you hid the figures, especially since i am looking for these figures myself and it would tick me off if someone in my area did that. But after i read your explanation, it brought a smile to my face, to many people are trying to get rich and make a profit thanks to on-line auctions like E-bay and Yahoo! Glad to see you are not one of them and I hope the kids that get the figures appreciate what you did for them.

    I don't think anyone has ever gotten "rich" by selling Star Wars toys online. LOL

    GUYS,

    today riding my Duc (Ducati) sat 5/11/2002 @ 1:05pm, I stopped by TRU and found Star Wars Figures that i was looking for:

    Bespin Duel Darth Vader
    Final Battle Jango Fett
    Count Dooku
    Genosian Rescue Mace Windu!


    I bought those four!

    There were plenty at TRU (rockway NJ)
    also spotted for whoever doesn't have them:

    yoda
    Hanger Duel Anikan

    Did not see the royal guard, taun we, or Liminara lubduli
    so whoever doesn't have any of those, better go now before those GREEDY scalpers hoard them!!!!!

    I want to get more royal guards! One a case?!?!? that really sucks for getting multiplis!!!

    what a beautiful day it is today! I'm going riding again!
