A lot of the peg warming around here is due to stock shifting. As I mentioned in other threads, there's a couple of guys aroung here that are clearing out stock at Target and returning that stuff to other Targets. The one I ususlay hit at 8am has been the victom of two waves of wave4 collection 1 returns and is chocked with those. Oddly, the store being cleared out did get restocked as planned, but they quickly became filled with left over wave 5 stock and are now clogged with #35 Palpatines and #36 Grevious'.

That's something I think is a rarity in my area...  At least if it happens it's a really minimal thing that goes under the radar (at least my radar). 

Our stores are pretty bare...  They could all use some restocking.  The AskAak wave was in ok abundance the other day at a local WM but those pegs were still pretty bare even with a restock... 

And I'm still amazed that the AT-RT continues to sell out.  I mean, that thing just won't sit still.  It's a great vehicle, crap figure, but just damn popular.  Gotta love that.

The big warmers in Fairfax VA are:

. Bail
. Clone Pilot (Kinda suprised about this; he was really scarce at first)
. Nemoidian Warrior (Great Figure but a peg warmer nonetheless)
. Tarrful
. Cocoa puffs Wookie
. Mas (Gene Simmons) Amedda

Have yet to see the tarkin wave. Damn.

You're exactly right.  Basically a pegwarmer is a figure that doesn't sell, so you see a ton of them.

Well, I did what I had dreaded doing earlier today and actually observed the actual pegwarmers in my area.  What I found was surprising in some ways and not in others.  It also kind of lends credence to the idea that Hasbro doesn't pay a bit of attention to what actually sells 90% of the time and that they should do so such that future case assortments adjustments be made accordingly.

Anyway, here's the current list of pegwarmers:

FIGURES IN ABUNDANCE (20 or more at each store):

-Super Battle Droid
-Grievous' Bodyguard
-Supreme Chancellor Palpatine
-Bail Organa
-Agen Kolar
-Plo Koon
-Shaak Ti
-Mon Mothma
-Tarfful
-Saesee Tiin
-Clone Pilot
-Palpatine (35)
-Mas Amedda

FIGURES IN SLIGHTLY LESS ABUNDANCE (at least 10 of each):

-Chewbacca
-Kit Fisto
-Ki-Adi Mundi
-Luminara Unduli
-Aayla Secura
-Clone Commander
-Vader's Medical Droid
-Polis Massan

Any and all other figures are either sporadic (as is the case with Yoda, Obi-Wan, Padme, Dooku, the droids, or Grievous) or completely nonexistent (Clones 6 and 41, AT-TE Gunner, Royal Guards).

The grand champions of pegwarming, however, as they are in most other areas these days it seems, are the Neimoidian Warrior and the Wookiee Warrior.  I counted about 30 of each at the local WM this morning, and there were far too many to count at the Target next door.  And the worst part?  Hasbro is still including both those figures in future waves/case assortments.   ::)

I think it's 12, but I'm not positive

It's as big as a house on walking legs,

12 - 16...  For basics anyway.  That's been my experience in case ratios...  The 16 figure cases were in movie years in the past, I never really paid attention to them during the ROTS blitz however.

It's funny how tables can turn, but in my neck of the woods we're starting to see many more Collection 1 figures start to sit from, what I assume, was refresh assortments...  At the same time, Collection 2 Jedi are becoming less and less common here, though I'd say between all the major retailers that all of them can be had (save for Dooku who is just a hot figure still).  Clones, still non-existant on the pegs.  Even the Pilots are dwindling around here...  The Wookiee #2 also.

I'm seeing more Obi's and Ani's though...  No Mace Windu figures however.  He's kinda like Dooku in that he's a hot one since the line's debut.

Yeah, the current case assortments for ROTS are 12 figures.  Hasbro hasn't really used the 16 figure case assortment since before Episode I, although the Collection 1 cases for that film were 24 figures per case (which might have contributed to the oversaturation problem in 1999).

The thing that is going to be biting all of us in our collective rears is that the Neimoidian Warrior, who is rapidly overtaking Mas Amedda for the biggest pegwarmer of the line, is going to be shipping AGAIN in the upcoming "final" Collection 1 assortment with Pilot Obi-Wan/Turbo Tank Driver/Utapaun Warrior.

local (home) Wal-mart for regular figures:
a nemodian
a wookie warrior
and about 3 deluxes that I don't remember what of.


THAT IS IT!!!!!!

But they have everything else flowing off the shelf:ninja turtles, transformers, fan 4, spidey, etc.....

But I'm not complaining I've got 2 Walmarts, Targets, & TRU's by my work just unfortunate I can't find anything new at any of them.

I just think it's pathetic the selection that is there and it's been like that for about 2 weeks now.  And no restock at all.
