Long-time lurker on these boards. Living in Farmingville right now. I could not make the MMs because my wife had surgery that afternoon. The following Monday I went store-hopping & found virtually everything I was looking for. I am missing 3 carded figs - Ewok, Bane Malar, & Sandstorm Luke. I've been searching my area for a week - anybody seen them recently, because I have yet to see even one! Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks doubledown, but my work schedule pretty much prohibits me getting to Levittown & back on my break. Anybody see those three (Ewok, Bane & Luke sandstorm) not too far from the Farmingville area? I can drive about 20 minutes each way, but I am working 8 to 9 most days!

Can't wait for tomorrow to hear how you wound up in the bathroom next to Lucas and asked him " what the f*** were you thinking when you created Jar Jar??..." or got him to promise you to look into Hasbro's distribution problems on Long Island....or banged one of the actresses...or got a part in his next movie....or....you get the idea lol.
Anyway, have fun if you really do go, but I suggest you bring a camera for credibility's sake!

Picked up a couple of the WM exclusive 501st clones in Center Reach. They had tons of 'em. It's a pretty boring figure IMO but I always get 1 to open, 1 MOC of the exclusives when I can.

So how was the movie????
I wasnt impressed. Im not a big a big a CW fan. the cartoon was decent but I just felt that ATTACK OF THE CLONES has just been extended by another 2 hours. anakin has a new side kick thats just as bad as jar jar.

there were about 3000 people in attendance, mostly reporters. Lucas was sitting in the front in a chair, answering questions. I dont even think he watched the entire movie, unless it was from a balcony that was out of site. He would only answer CW questions. It was the same set up as the interview with Harrison Ford a few years back.

Thanks miscus & atreyu! I nabbed the last 3 Legacy figs I needed Monday, & I just picked up the 501st trooper a while ago. They still had a few out (about 8, I think) but some of those had bent cards.

Transformers fans might want to hit Kohls. I scored Galvatron and Acid Storm in the Commack one last night. Buy one get one half off sale too. There was 1 Galvatron left there & I put him behind all the others. I did not see a second Acid Storm though. Plenty of wave 3 Animated and FDI CW and BAD figs too.

Don't see that much here, but that really sucks! And the taped bubble style that Hasbro has been using makes it so much easier. I do like the look of the to-the-edge bubble, but there has to be a better way! I'd live to see the same style, but instead of taping the edges to the back, glue them to the front, in essence "under" the blister. This maintains the same look but helps to avoid the figure swapping issue. Anybody else got ideas, maybe we can get them to Hasbro in a Q&A.

they swapped out 3 figures, along with the droid parts on the back. they put the ewok from 96...the one with the glider that comes out of a little planet on the ewok card, replaced a crappy clone trooper from one of the target sets and replaced a snow padme from another target with the new snow padme.

Nothing yet - I have seen bunches of the Snowbunny Padme Legacy wave at TRUs in the area, if anyone is still missing them. The only new fig I am looking to get is the Yaddle & Even Piell 2-pack. Looking forward to the next Legacy wave (RotS) & the next CW wave.

Anyone found the new figs yet?
Nothing yet, I've been checking everyday at Target on Horseblock road and there hasn't been anything... Not even the exclusive BattlePack. I am going out to Riverhead tomorrow to continue my searching. Will post again to let everyone know.
