Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Han & Chewy!  One of each.  OMG.  Lucky. That's my rant.  ;D
If only someone would be nice to pick those 2 up for me.  :)  Oh well.  :'(

BTW, nice score.  8)

Not as lucky as you guys buy today at a Super Target here in Indy I picked up X2 Hoth Han, X2 Chewbacca, and X1 Boba Fett.

Pretty dang lucky looking to me David!  Nice score!  You'll have to drop us your thoughts on the highly anticipated Han/Chewie duo once you get 'em opened up...  Keep up the great hunting!   8)

Holy Crap :o  You guys won't believe this.  Y'know how Canada sucks as far as Star Wars toys go?  Well, you won't believe what I found.  

Six Walmarts and all of one figure on the pegs, Twister Han ::) >:( :( :'(

Yep, Canada still sucks.

I wish there were new figures out by me.  I haven't seen a new carded figure since November!  The only way I can get new figures is from Kebco Toys.

I haven't been toy shopping for months, granted I do swing by the toy aisle whenever we go to Target, haven't seen much of anything forever...

The Han?Chewie wave has hit here in Mid-Michigan once or twice at a couple of the Targets. I haven't found them myself but Sithlord4242 found and hooked me up the other day (thanks Kevin). However I haven't heard squat about any Michiganders finding the Yoda & Chian, Asla & Jempa, Red Battle Droid waves. Looks like the drought is almost over though.

Yoda with Chian, Asla & Jempa, and the Red Battle Droid wave has not been found that I know of here in Indy either. There have been reports of the Deluxe Spider Droid and Deluxe Super Battle Droid Maker being found at Target on the North Side of Indy.

I've seen reports of these being found in the NY tri-state area.  Haven't seen them yet, myself.

Forgot to post this but I found my first '03 figure at retail in Minnesota last weekend when I found the infamous Hoth Han with a smattering or R2's, Mace's and Obi's mixed in as well

Then yesterday while strolling through Wally World I saw a freshly packed pegs of figures.  I walk briskly over only to find Yoda and Destroyer Droid '02 figures, 2 cases worth...and who's to blame for not finding '03 figures Hasbro...oh yeah the retailers...who packed the same figs in 4 or 5 different cases and is still shipping them?  Idiots

Padme Amidala (Droid Factory Chase)
SP-4 & JN-66 (Research Droids)
Lama Su (Kamino Prime Minister with Clone Youth)
Ayala Secura (Jedi Knight)

I am hoping the Target stores in Indy restock soon. I have noticed for the past two weeks that the figs have been pulled for the reset.

One lucky SOB is right.  Just read on another board a suggestion that Canadian Walmarts won't be carrying ANY SW product until October :'(
