Nah....I'll find it eventually.  I'm more interested in the three comic packs I can't find.

After looking at the Joclad Danva figure and comparing him with this image....



...he may make good custom fodder for a Sifo-Dyas figure.


And it's another good excuse to get another Battle Droid, too.  ;D

These are non-existant here.  Most stores either haven't put them out, or they sold out immediately.

I'm thinking of ordering the last ones I need online and just saying screw it to waiting on these to get put out or waiting for any hope of a clearance.  I saw 2 on shelves at one Target, and that's it.

The only two I saw, ironically, were the two with the new Jedi.

The Target by me got two more cases of these today so hopefully for those you still need them they will be in your store soon in masse.

I would love to nab these on clearance.  I'm sure they'll be full price through the holidays though.   :-\

I can lend you some money if you're too poor to buy these at full price.

That would be great!  Please do send any extra cash you have my way.  Thanks!

I've seen a lot of these crushed. Too many cases stacked low on the pallet.

I don't know if it is just here locally, but these seem to be sitting quite a bit.  I got the ones I wanted online, which doesn't help things at retail I guess, but otherwise I don't know that I've seen many move around here.  Things may pick up during holiday shopping, or maybe people are just waiting for the clearances that seem to hit these things every year (I know I'll probably grab some more if/when that happens).

A small part of me wonders if - aside from CW Animated stuff - kids/collectors are getting a little burned out on prequel stuff.  It seems like from a lot of comments, many "collectors" look forward to the OT stuff more...and I think for the most part kids only care about the CW stuff at this point.  Not that we don't like getting new waves of prequel stuff as well, but it seems like many of us are (aside from new Palps/Padmes) burnt out on ROTS, and aside from some redos/podracers/Padmes, TPM seems to be covered well too.  Anyways, just surprised to see these sitting a bit, as there doesn't seem to be near the numbers this time around as we saw with the Order 66 sets (but maybe that is still coming).

Yeah in town they were starting to hit harder, and I'm out of town at he moment and today a Target I was able to sneak out to had a good 15-ish. I think they may have just put a case out though. They do still seem to be selling fairly well.
