I Picked up 5 of the newest saga wave, I haven't seen Elan Or AYY yet.  Today I found the old Deluxe Yoda & C3-P0 droid factry figs at KB for $3.99 It was the first time I Had seen them at retail.  I'm caught up on clone wars stuff.
Welcome to JD, Phil.

Just a couple of days ago I found Aayla, Elan, Deluxe 3PO, Hail Fire, Anakin's Starfighter, and a couple of freshly stocked AAT's. Wedding Padme's, that orange/yellow stripper, etc. Target is awesome now that the box-buying bastard is gone.

Today while shopping at a nearby Wal*Mart I found and bought, of course, Luke, R-3PO, Hoth Trooper, Kren Blista Vanee(sp?), CW Kit, CW Saesee, and the recarded versions of Ayyla, Barris and Yoda/Chian. There was plenty of these but the new Han and SA Clonetrooper, as well as the other recarded figures were nowhere to be seen. Still a darn pleasin' haul!

I was able to pick up a few figures this weekend after seeing Return of the King.  I found the remains of the Hoth wave (R-3PO, Klen Blista Vanee) at Target, and the one and only Ultra figure at TRU (General Rieekan).  I was happy to find something new, although I was hoping I would have gotten there soon enough to find a Hoth Luke and/or Wampa.  I guess I'll take what I can get though, since we live 40 miles away from these stores :P.  Boy, are those ultra cards ever BIG!!

Yay for me! I picked up the Ultra Rieekan and Wampa today at Target I also picked up Screen Scene War Room #2. That Wampa is awesome! I'm looking forward to picking up the new Hoth Luke to go with it. :)

I was able to find the lone remaining Ultra 3PO yesterday at Target.  It looks like they have redone Target's toy section, as there were more pegs for SW figs (including pegs for the Animated series figs).  The only figures this particular Target had though were 2 Secret Ceremony Anakins (new cards), 2 Ultra Rieekans, and this one 3PO.  I was happy to find it though, the search continues for Hoth Luke and the Wampa :).  It really seems like, at least in this area, that SW figures are really selling well....very little hanging on the pegs.  The last time I picked up a R-3PO (couple weeks ago), there were several Dignitaries and Achk Med-Beqs hanging on the pegs, and those were long gone yesterday as well.  Glad to see that it is selling well, its just getting tough to find things :P.

This past weekend was an Obi weekend for me I guess.  I was able to finally find the Outlander Bar Obi Wan, which is probably the best Episode II version they have done IMO.  I was also fortunate enough to find a Clone Wars Animated Obi-Wan as well, and although many people dislike this line, I really think they are kind of cool.  I was especially impressed with the packaging for these figures.  I'm not as big of a fan of the regular Clone Wars figures, and other than the SA Clone, I don't think I will buy anymore of those....but I'd like to pick up the rest of the animated line.  I guess I don't mind them being cartoony and not "fitting in", because they are from a cartoon...and I like them to represent that.  Now if we could just get some Hoth Lukes and Wampas around here I could get a little bit caught up :).  Good luck to everyone in their hunts!

Although, I guess not technically "Saga", I did find the rest of the Animated Clone Wars Wave 1 (Anakin, Mace, Asajj).  I was also able to finally find a Concept Stormtrooper at TRU.

Saga Purchases - What You Have So Far This Year
« Reply #27 on: March 4, 2004, 03:43 PM »
Just thought I'd post an update of what I've been able to find (or get with some help from Mr. JediMAC) this year.  It seems like a little bit of a drought around here lately, after a pretty good month in January.  Is it kind of slowing down around you right now too?  So far this year for me I have found (or received):

Hoth Wave
Luke Skywalker (Hoth Attack)
R-3PO
Hoth Trooper (skipped this one)

Tatooine Wave
Jedi Luke Skywalker (Jabba's Palace)
R2-D2 (Jabba's Sail Barge)
R1-G4

Animated Clone Wars
Obi-Wan
Anakin
Assaj
Dooku
Yoda
Clone
Durge
Mace

Ultra Figures
Wampa
C-3PO with Escape Pod
General Rieekan

Figures from 2003
Concept Stormtrooper
Outlander Club Obi-Wan

Still on the lookout for Jabba's Palace wave (especially Skiff Lando), Ultra Jabba and his denizens, and the Yavin wave as well (as many of you probably are).  It is nice that everything is coming out earlier than normal this year (so far), but it sometimes makes me feel "behind" :).  Best of luck to all of you in your searches.
