i got the Queen Amidala (Theed Invasion) figure today at TRU, for a discount at 2.99.

Awesome deal there!  Congrats on that!  Does your TRU have any other EP1 figures on clearance?

Yeah, but you're also writing this all in the Episode 1 forum, and that just happened to throw me off.   :-*

Old stock, lost in the back forever, most likely.  Pretty steep price though.

I just snagged the entire commtech set for $185 Cdn delivered.  Sorry, should say that was loose and it works down to about $140 US.  So I now have all the HTF figs carded and loose.  Took care of my hooded Leia, Wuher and another commtech Stormie is always welcome.

went to my TRU today, and found 3 EP1 figures on the pegs with old "orange" tags on them that priced at $2.97, the figures were, Darth Maul (Sith Lord), Jar Jar Binks (Naboo Swamp), Queen Amidala (Coruscant), i asked the associate who was working in boy's world at the time, and he said they just got those from a return, but then i was wondering, because does TRU put stickies on the collectibles?  It was really weird, but will they take back figures that are so old?

I have a Brooks Drugstore by me that still has Ep 1 figures on the pegs.   All they have are Nute and Rune, but they have been there since they were released!!  They never even got the new stuff in, no POTJ, AOTC, nothing.  You'd think they would have removed them from the pegs and gotten some of the newer releases in. ::)

yea, my rite aid has 1 C-2 "8D8" figure, it is smashed and all, the bubble is smashed the card is bent in to many ways, and they also have 1 Ugnaughts and Ewoks in the same condition.  They also have an opened Mace Windu (Arena Confrontation), and thats all we have.

My local KB still has about half a dozen POTF2 Ewok Celebration Leias. There's so many price changes on the stickers, from the original 7.99 to 3.99 to 2.99 to 1.99 back to 2.99 its so funny that its sad....

One TRU by me still has about 10 E1 Nute Gunrays on clearance for $1.98.  Been that way for over a year now.  The only action on them has been moving from the SW section to the clearance section.  Pretty pathetic.
