Thanks for the tip.  Hit my TRU on the way home and they had two cases worth on the shelf.  Once again 9.99.  Now only the Target Clone Exclusive to worry about :P

For those wondering.  I am in Mass.

My TRU didn't have anything but that's what they've had for what seems like ages.  When Holo Yoda came out there were 5 or 6 old, fat guys waiting for the store to open on Sunday and they ran in and got a few but the store had many holo yodas for a few weeks after that.  The price point keeps the scalpers at bay a bit around here in VA.  So I predict this figure will be easy to find but for many stores you'll be forced to buy $30 of SW stuff to get it.

Oh good, another exclusive that is slipping out ahead of schedule, forcing me to hunt for them instead of showing up when they're advertised for. ******* slick.

I've just about had it with this. Are these exclusives making anyone happy?

Not really. Having to make sure I get them by driving to or constantly hanging around a certain store is getting out of hand.
I remember my dream now.

Hey, at least it isn't a Target exclusive. When was the last time anyone had any real trouble getting a TRU exclusive at TRU?

This is true. I say Target and TRU should exchange exclusives 8). Seems like Target has put the lockdown on Clone exclusives which explains why most of theirs are so hard to get. Well, that and their policy...

Yeah, it really stinks that Target has all the clone exclusives and no 'real' control over them like TRU does.   ::) It's nearly impossible for a "regular" person to get a Target clone exclusive.  I'm not a regular person (I'm a clone FREAK :D) and I can't get them the normal, "walk to the store and see them on the shelf" way.  No one wants an army of lava reflection Obi Wan's or Anakins hence I can easily find them at all Targets around me, but the two waves of Clone Battle Packs I've seen put out vanished in less than 24hrs each time.    (I have an army of the Battle Pack clones (3 packs worth) and they are freaking cool baby! ;) )

Scalpers will be scalpers, collectors are everywhere and these are cool figures. I know that the only reason TRU exclusives are easy to get is because the booger pickin, fatboy, comic-shop-guys can't afford to clean out the holo figures if they have to buy $30 of SW stuff for EACH one.  I wish Target was the same. :-[

Nice catch! Thank you.  :)

Now I have no reason to go into that useless hellhole TRU again this year.

Wow, it looks like Holo Yoda is back IN-STOCK too!

They must have found some left-overs in the warehouse...

That holo yoda was actually still available up til the beginning of Sept in my area ???

Regarding the Emperor.  This is probably the weakest exclusive IMO to date.   Unfortuneately I am a completist when it comes the exclusive figs.  No need for two versions of this.  Three if you include the EP1 holo sidious which is superior to either of these.

FOUND!

By: Me!   ;D
Where: Minnesota TRU, hanging on the pegs
Price: $9.99 plus tax
UPC # = 6 53569 11619 6

Time to start looking!  ;)


edit:
I noticed just now that the Yakface gang has a scan of the upcoming TRU ad for next week:

http://www.yakface.com/clavius/SWad.jpg

So, there you go.  Either buy Holo Palpy for $10 or buy $30 worth of stuff you already have to get him for free on Sunday (assuming of course there are any left :P).

Had to wait a long time to see this in Canada.  Nothing in our flyer regarding a sale so no reason to hold them back.  Even better though...$7.99 each.  Canadian.  Eh.  Taxes are 14%, exchange is 15% so that's the price in US dollars too :P :-*

Damn second shift job. I missed the Emperor.

But it won't be the last time he's there, so I can wait.

He's still on the website, Ben.  Probably the best way to go.
