Episode 1 / Re: R2-B1 & TC-14

Ok, Ok howz about this...They "weren't difficult to find?" Geography-wise look where I was collecting. Honestly- I had no collecting friends-other than my 11 years younger brother- and really didn't need any since everything"fell in my lap"( there was no competition)--I had to learn about getting collector help when I moved back to this state 3 years ago. I swear collecting star wars in the US is about thirds...One third east coast-(NY,NJ other crammed pop. states) another third southwest including so. Cal..and lastly the last third which comprises the the other 90% of US. geography. Look I had know idea how "whatever-hard to get" these were until months later when the LEES and Tomarts showed price increases. At least I completed my other collections since 95 before I moved( except FF weequay!). I will concede if I lived here.. then I probably would not have got those droids

Episode 1 / Re: How many episode 1 figs do you have?
« on: July 22, 2005, 11:55 AM »
I have everything- I got all my figs at various stores but mainly at Wal Mart at 0200 in the morning when they stocked- my last figs were the (supposedly rare)droids I scored at Kmart grand opening in Abilene, Tx. A buddy of mine just quit his "almost collection" he asked me if I wanted it- his collection included 40 figs. He wanted to sell them for 40$. I told him " no I can't take you that badly" so I gave him $60. Did I fail to mention his collection included the red royal guard,holo emp,amidala asc,droid 2 pck, and bibble? So tell me I scored on that one!!! So anyway now I have extra of these figs listed above with several others on card.

THese droids- the tc14 and r2b1 were easy to find. I saw them once at a KMART grand opening in Texas then again in Idaho at another Kmart. When I discovered them in Idaho( in a town of 14,000 people) the case must have been crushed because the cards were all openers-they were seriously curved and dented in bubbles)  :'(
The real trick is....IF you really WANT the figure bad enough-you actually have to have dementia and go to the stores DAILY! when they open or are stocking! If not well, then.....I'm sorry my friend- then your left crying at this website about why you didn't get one.

My order went like this (found all of these at stores) I always hit the local 24 hour Wal mart at 2 Am when these got stocked.

Swimming Jar Jar
Tc14 and the astromech
last wave (amidala ascension)
yoda w/text
Holo sidious wave (with red guard)
flat bubble r2

I only saw the Jar Jar wave once in any store; the amidala wave I saw everywhere-I have an extra set of those- I saw the droid wave in 2 different Kmarts- I had a chance to get 4 sets of these but one store got a damaged case that crushed all the cards and bubbles.
