It was a great day for most of us who showed up at Toys 'R Us at 6:00am (Friday, November 29), because TRU had their pegs stocked quite nicely.  For the first time I came across Ephant Mon and the Endor Rebel Soldier (without goatee) in an actual store, and naturally I had to quickly snag them up.  It was mass hysteria in the store, but for the most part I think most Star Wars collectors left with smiles on their faces.

Wow, Ephant Mon & Endor Soldier clean shaven.
Great score. Like I will ever see the Endor dude up here.  :(
That Ephant Mon is one nice big ol hunk of action figure.  :)

People are going to die when they hear how many of each figure I ended up scoring too...

Ephant Mon = x5
Endor Rebel Soldier (no goatee) = x8

There were so many figures at the TRU by my house that there was no possible way of getting all of them.  I just had to get a bunch of them though.

Holy smoke.  :o
That's quite a haul. I would be interested in 1 of the Endor Soldier's.  :)

What do you have to offer as a trade?  Do you have a list of figs that you own posted somewhere?

Now why can't my TRU be like all of yours'? Hopefully I'll check mine this weekend. I want an Ephant Mon wicked bad. :)

I think you got very lucky finding everything that you did.  I hope to have that kind of luck after xmas.  I really need to get  Ephant Mon, Clonetrooper pilot, and both Endor Soldiers.
