Ephant Mon
« on: May 22, 2004, 01:17 AM »
Ephant Mon is showing up at TRU's in Utah in repacked Saga Wave 9 cases from last year. He was at two local TRU's today.
Also, locally, our Family Dollar stores have Saga figures going for $2. I found several Ephant's there for that price. Not mint, but in good condition.

is he showing up on the "new" 2004 gold cards or the older cards he was first packed on?

I'd posted a news blurb here at JediDefender.com not too long ago alerting the public that he'd made a mass resurgence here in Pittsburgh.

Every TRU I hit save for one (which I didn't hear a report on from anyone so he may have showed there as well) saw reshipments of him.

It was likely old warehouse stock I'm betting, but he did show again in decent enough #'s that I know a few guys in my area who missed him got one.

He's shipping in his original case assortment Dave, so he's on his original card.  Again I think this is old stock, not technically "new shipments" from Hasbro.  A lot of stores seem to be getting some old things in, and it is inventorying time of year.

Yes, old card and these are reshipments.  Looks like TRU or Hasbro or both are clearing out old inventory.

Some older 2002 stock was at the local TRU last week...didn't think much of it until Jesse's report last week

#1 I'm wondering if they picked up some of the KB scraps when KB declared bankruptcy

#2 How much of this damn stuff did they make (AGAIN)!!!!

Yeah, it makes you wonder....  I'm really hoping for some cleared pegs soon.  I haven't been to stores for a while (mostly cuz of rising gas prices).  When I do go I fear I'm going to see the same old stock I saw last time I was out though, and all those damned Jedi and Youngling repacks that plagued EVERY Wal-Mart in my area.

I don't know which is worse.  The Jedi/Younglings or late 2002/early 2003 stock that's now lying about the TRU stores here.

My TRU's have tons of Aayla, Barris, Padawans, Yodas, Imp Dig, wave of figures. It would be nice to see Ephant Mon again or some other figs besides the ones listed. TRU was getting in the newer stuff them BAM back to the old.  :(

After selling off my modern collection about a year ago I decided to collect certain pieces only, this being one.

Two weeks ago I found one at a TRU.  Then today my wife saw two more at another local TRU.

I'd like to buy one too, as they never showed up around here.

Tritto.  I could use a decent carded version.  I had four at one point, but ended up selling them to local guys that needed them.  Fool.
