I talked to my local TRU today, and they said Yoda will be out with everything else tonight.

I guess TRU will be my first stop.

I just got back from TRU as well, they said it shopuld be here tonight as well.

Kind of ticks me off really.  I had all my set on going to Target and blowing $100 there.  Now I feel like I have to pull back just to wander over to TRU "in case" they have the Holo Yoda.  Oh well, I will get over it when I get the merchandise in my grubby little hands.

Holographic Yodas AVAILABLE TONIGHT in stores
« Reply #47 on: April 2, 2005, 12:27 AM »
I just got back from a TRU in Harrisburg.  Contrary to most reports, they DID have Holographic Yodas available.  They got in one case, which unfortunately ran out before I could get one.  But the guy said they'd be getting more for their promotion on the 10th.

It's too late to help anybody on the East Coast, but I figure your West Coast guys might want to adjust your plans accordingly.   ;)

Thanks Bill, i did a front page report on it in hopes someone maybe on the West Coast can make good use of that.  You were out and back mighty quick, hope you had a good one...

I'm doing my rounds tomorrow I guess.

Yeah, I just picked up the Galactic Heroes and a Clone Trooper.  I'm gonna do my real shopping when I can do it at a more leisurely pace... it was nuts there.

I know Raspet and a bunch of guys he went out with actually got the Yodas at their TRU.  First 11 through the door got one, and they all got there at 11:15pm.  Sounds like it was crazy all over.

I'm about to drive over to my store.

We shall see if this information proved useful, Mr. Cartoonmaker.

It's on Amazon now. Just ordered mine.

Amazon

$4.20 for shipping. Ugh. Glad I got a decent sized tax return coming.  :P

The TRU we went to had a small basket full of them - but not a lot.  Maybe 20 or so tops.

Picked up the holo yoda this morning In knoxville, Tn. We have two in the area. I was tipped of at 10:23 that one of my buddys picked one up for 9.99. I went to the one near me and was told the would be avaliable on the 10th. I made a mad dash to the one my friend got his at and they still had four behind the counted and was given one when i ask about it.

The tip was appreciated Bill, I think it potentially did help some folks out.  Good news there.

I didn't even go to MM so I had no hope there...  Not been to the Pitt forums to see what the guys got in their hauls last night, so I need to pop in there.  I've been draggin' all day so no time spent online really.

Thanks for that heads up again though, that was mighty kind.  Catch ya at Bob's room party most likely, or at the PSWCS table at C3.  I'll be at the FFURG table some.

It sure helped me out!  I knew it was to be available, but actually forgot about it until Bill's post.  A couple are headed my way.

That's me. ;) Yep I got my Holo Yoda ... there were only twelve and I was fifth in the line (at least originally). Neener neener to all the rest of you that missed out. :P Sorry for rubbing it in, it's just that this is the first time I've scored anything that could be considered a rare exclusive. Of course it'll only be rare for a week but that's beside the point. ;)
