I wish my local TRU had something that I could buy to earn the thing. They haven't re-stocked last I checked, and even if they did its so close to Christmas!
I hope they have some after Christmas, but I doubt it.

My TRU never got it. So needless to say neither did I. I'm very disapointed.

I have four silver R2-D2's right now.  I have one that is C-9.5, two that are C-8, and one that is about C-6.5 (bubble is dented).  I purchased some figures, Jedi Starfighter ship, Action Fleet vehicles, and the new Slave I.

JP, if "Wanda" is anything like the people at my local Toys R Us stores, she just may deserve to be fired. ;)

Alas my TRU ran out of them the day they came in, therefore I never got one. :( >:(

I finally got one(well I'll be getting one)!!  In roughly 3 hours I will win one from the AllTroops.com Troop Training Contest.  No one has come close to beating my 24 multicharges.  Lets hope that it doesn't happen at midnight. ;)

I'm not sure how hard they were to get in the St.Louis area !! The first TRU I called in St.Peters Mo, the gal I talked to knew exactly what I was wanting. She said they had two and she would hold one for me (whatagal)!!!
I was there in 15 minutes and grabbed a Anakin and Zams speeders and a Perfect R2 !!!!
That is very unusual for me !! Most of the time getting what I want is like pulling Teeth !!!!

I never saw any at the store either. Maybe my store was one of those who let the sealed cases somehow work there way onto ebay.

 The people at my local store don't seem to well updated on whats comming out.
