Kmart is the only retailer I've found in my region that has stocked any of the figures above #40. Everyone else here is still trying to unlode backstock and unfortunately, it's not early backstock either.
Kmart has run several 2 day, $3 Star Wars figure sales. I was able to find one in another town that actually priced them (sticker gun tags) and hadn't made the change after the sale. I nabbed Ki-Adi-Mundi, Teemto, Tusken Raider/Massiff & Watto and went to the checkout not sure what to expect. As I'm scanning other aisles, I walk past just to double check that I didn't miss something and an employee is there and he's retagging the figures. I went to the cash register and checked out and told them what the tag read. The manager said that in the interest of customer satisfaction, I'd get them at the price that was marked ($3). Needless to say, I was a satisfied customer!
The next stop at a Kmart in my own area, I netted a Clone Pilot and Jango Pilot. They must've been pegged recently, because there were several to choose from of each figure.
They had a 2 day, $3 sale at the same Kmart (my area) and I thought it was all week. I arrived late in the evening on the 2nd day (luckily) and lo and behold, 2 Ephant Mon's were bending the pegs. I decided to leave one for the sake of letting someone else be as delighted as I was. I also grabbed a Lott Dodd. They really have been treating me well!
The last finds were pretty much luck and at a Kmart in an area where I work (30 min. from my home). First visit, a lone, clean shaven Endor Rebel Soldier lay waiting for me to retrieve it.
The next day, I went back on a whim and another one had come out of hiding and was quickly snagged and purchased. 2 clean shaven Endor Rebels in 2 days! Since, not a one has shown up.
Kmart has been hooking me up!
I found a rare Padme Amidala today, but passed her up due to the bubble being damaged. I thought I'd pass the info along though for those of you that hunt for variants. The Padme (Coruscant) has a sticker where the informational blurb appears. This is to cover a text mistake.
The first variant has the text error. It is based on the bio text not being specific on the origin of the figure and inconsistant with the real story.
"An explosion tears apart the royal ship that is supposedly carrying the queen of Naboo, just as the vessel reaches Coruscant. Ready to defend those in danger, Senator Padme Amidala is relieved that the ship was a decoy and the queen is safe, but she is alarmed by the violent attack and its menacing implications."
All the other Padme's have either the sticker corrected back or the text reprinted correctly.
"Senator Amidala, the former queen of Naboo, returns to Coruscant to vote on the critical issue of creating an army for the Republic to assist the overwhelmed Jedi. As her Naboo Cruiser arrives, an explosion tears apart the ship. Fortunately Padme, disguised as a Naboo Pilot, eludes danger, but her decoy Carde, disguised as Senator Amidala, was not as lucky."
Yet another slew of variants for the masses!
Good luck and hunting!
