Evenflow - where in the country are you located?  Has there been any sign of these in the midwest region yet?  I'm already tired of hitting up Walgreens stores around the metro

Living in Arizona at the moment.

Opened this bad boy up last night and found myself liking it more than I expected. Something about the all-white motif just brings out the sublime brilliance of the sculptural details.

My closest store started a waiting list. Management said that there are dozens of names and aren't taking any more.  :-\

At least I've been able to score some Doctor Who figs there.  :)

Yeah, I've actually been surprised at how many different stores have told me "yeah, we've had a lot of calls about those" when I've asked.  Some seem annoyed, although others don't seem to mind too much.  If there is one thing this "hunt for Fett" has made me realize, I don't think I like "the hunt" anymore.  It may just be the store(s) and the situation, but driving around to multiple Walgreens the last couple weeks has just seemed like a big time suck ;).  I've used the Fett finder feature on Walgreens.com, and it seems pretty accurate for the most part.  It seems to show "in stock" if they have any 6" series at all (not just Fett), and goes out of stock the same day if sold out.  I did run into one store who when I told them their website said they had them in stock, said they had a Fett, but it was being held for someone who called in....for three days now.  Oh well.  I have found a Vader and a Luke, so it was nice to not come home completely empty handed from these multiple trips, but I think I'm about done running to stores outside of the ones closest to our house (or maybe just the one closest).

I've been hitting a number of area Walgreens over the past couple of weeks.  But the Fett finder on the Walgreens website will be a tremendous help in tracking this down.
