ROTS Line: Any You Never Saw/Found?
« on: January 11, 2006, 04:21 PM »
Now that the ROTS line is all wrapped up, and clearing out what is left around the country, were there any figures (or vehicles, beasts, etc.) that you never ended up seeing at retail?  Even if you didn't plan on getting them, are there any that you missed out on?  I think the only figure I can think of that I never saw at retail once is the Holo Plo Koon.  The others from those last few (501st, Holo Aayla, Wookiee Gunner, etc.) I only saw one time and to be honest, the wave with the Grievous Bodyguard variant, Shu Mai, etc. I only saw once as well and some other figures throughout the line were somewhat limited in appearances as well (red royal guard, evolution packs, etc.)  I saw Gree and Bly both on two occasions, but that was about it as well.  Off the top of my head though, I think the holo Plo Koon is the only figure I never saw in person from this line...up to this point.  I didn't need it anyways, but just surprised it never has shown up.  Are there any that you didn't see throughout this line at all?

Never saw the shocktrooper or Black pilot on the shelves.  Everything else was seen at least once (and some only once). 

I may have seen most of them, but that doesn't mean I bought most of them.

For me it was the Blue Royal Guard, sure a few found him here but I never saw one.  :'(

As for the final 12, they were not available in Canada retail wise. As usual we got screwed again!  >:(

The last wave of Collection 2 (still want that damn Tac Ops Trooper...)
Shocktrooper (though I got one from Spuffy)
Meena Tills
Ask Aak
Tarkin

Distribution for Collection 2 absolutely sucked here. Damn Bails and Mothmas killed any hope of finding later waves.

Go figure.  I still have your trilogo blue guard though. 

The final twelve I'm deeply indebted to someone on this board for helping out, so I missed nada.  Though there are still a few figures I have yet to bother buying.

Don't I wish.  Then buckling down and ordering that box wouldn't be nearly so painful.

I never saw the last Wookiee (the SP repaint), Holo Aayla Secura, or the Grey clone Evo pack. Luckily My secret Santa hooked me up with a few Wooks and an Aayla and I got the Grey set for Christmas.

I started going on midnight runs this year so I can get whatever I want usually. :)

One I forgot to mention was the Black Clone Pilot, I never saw that one here at all.  I did end up seeing the Shocktrooper on two occasions, and the Green Commander a few times, but the black clone pilot never did show up (or I missed it).  Some (like the red guard) I didn't see until the refresh assortments later in the year.
