No, just Texas.  :)

I swear that's the land of milk and honey for finding ****.  Everywhere else sucks though, save for perhaps Darth Slothus' area of operation in Cali.

I can attest that Pittsburgh had NOTHING near the quantity Rob was fortunate enough to get. :)  If you're moving to the States, keep on going once you cross the border because we ain't got jack or **** in Pittsburgh and Jack just skipped town.

Actually, Jesse, just Dallas.  :) In Austin, I saw 2 Sith sets once (snagged one), and no Anakin sets (got one with the Target DCPI). Yellow Clone sets hit a Wal-Mart in large numbers one day, but were quickly bought. I have yet to see a White Clone set. And we currently have bare pegs everywhere.

I'd say Dallas and Los Angeles are the best places for figures in the US. :-*

Yeah Matt's always had good luck when he had a heavy commute as I recall, I'm sure he can relay any further data, but the JediMAC always did well compared to what I was finding, haha.  And I know Slothus has great luck out that direction...  And Rob just boggles my mind.  I wish I could have found half the army builders he has.

I'm still sorta desperate for VOTC Stormtroopers and it kills me not having more than one Wookiee Heavy Gunner. T hat figure kicks so much ass I want at least 5 but I found one and one only.  And that sucks ass, to put it quite simple.

VOTC Stormies I found, but never in the numbers that I can say I passed on them.  And I got a number through trades too.  I found probably 20 on my own though, maybe slightly less like 15, and most at full price.  That was great to me at the time but I hear some people found dozens and some at as low as $3 each...  I'm just astonished and wish I had had such good fortune.  It's a figure I'd still be buying if I saw it.

LOL...

The way I find stuffs

purchased 26 shock troopers- traded all but one and it's spoken for!
black pilots saw about 20 in stores..bought half that many
evos yellow saw about 50 in stores over 2 month period-purchased only 2
        grey/white each of my 4 wal marts had these about 8 each on shelf for
        about 3 weeks then never saw them again
twins sets....sat on shelfs at wm's for about 3 weeks then never seen again
Still have several target clones ::)
gree/bly saw literally hundreds  and stayed on shelfs for a while

I have 4 WM's, 2 Targets,1 KB, I TRU, 1 Kmart in my area and not alot of collectors in my area ;)+ things sit. There was still CW cartoon packs 2 weeks after setting at WM's here. I only bought 9(18) sets for trading purposes

Hey I find alot of stuff  but disperse it to others for NO mark-up so I can brag.

Jesse- I saw 2 hidden Wookie HG's 2 nites ago at WM-need me to go back and see if there still there?

Slothus, by aall means if you can, and if those Target Clones are on clearance I'm all for them too actually.  The Heavy Gunner's one I didn't really get though, much less army build with.  :(  I love the Preview sculpt too, so I was thoroughly bummed at that.

Just let me know man.

Have evolutions always been $22.99 at TRU?  I stopped by one yesterday on the off chance they might have anything I need (no such luck).  They had about four each of the Sith and Grey Clones priced at the aforementioned cost.  I'm not 100% certain because I bought all my Evos at Target, but I could have sworn that they were $19.99 at TRU also.  Did TRU increase the price on these?  If so, great move by them.  Like they can afford to lose any more business.  ::)

Evolutions are $23.99 at my TRU now but were $19.99 before January 1st.

Ok, so I wasn't losing my mind.  But why the increase?  That's plain retarded.

I'd imagine it has something to do with the store closings. TRU seeems to be heading down the same path as KB toys, all of their prices have gotten higher laterly it seems, maybe if they would quit buying 100 Millenium Falcons in each repacked box, they would be able to offer better prices on eveything else. ::)

I love TRU...well to a limit.
I was so lucky to find a #33 commander there and also Bacara but I didnt have enough money with me and I passed up a SA Trooper for bacara.
Anyways.
I havent seen a single clone evo set at all.

I too saw a gray Evo for over $20 at TRU recently. $22.99 I think. I don't care for my local TRU. They still have VOTC Lando for $10.99 and I never find new stuff there.
