Hey guys, I check your board every now-and-then to see whats hitting, and I know you'll be interested in this:

The manager of the Clarksville, Indiana TRU (Nick) just informed us it’s official:

“I finally have official details about the 25th anniversary silver R2D2. It will be in the Big Book ad that comes out on November 3rd. It will be free with a $19.99 Hasbro Star Wars purchase and there will be a limit of one per customer. It looks like each store in our area will get around 700 figures. “

I saw this on the Louisville KY board on theforce.net. I have met Nick in person a few times, and he’s a huge Star Wars collector, so I’m sure this is accurate! I'm sure they'll hit Lexington on Nov. 3 too!

Hey made a run today and the only place with new stuff was TRU but i hit the jackpot...found Jango pilot,Tusken w/massiff ,Watto , Padme attack, and Lott Dod. now all i need is clone pilot and Ephot mon. they had at least one of each of what i listed above. and as far as the R2 goes the manager i talked to had no idea what i was talking about. he just looked at me funny and told me to check back next week. I couldve kicked him in the head!!!!!

Hey Lex sw collectors....

TeamRico from Louisville Finds.....said he snagged the Silver R2 from the Dixie Hwy TRU already.

Did you guys/gals check to see if your TRU is doing the same?

Hey guys, I wanted to let you know that I got my Silver R2 tonight as well, from the same Dixie Highway Louisville store Teamrico did. However, just incase you guys are worried (I posted this on Louisville forum too) toysrus.com is selling the Silver R2 right now for $9.99. Here is the link: web page

Good luck everyone!!!!!

Well, I was going to TRU this morning with Wysh but I'm sick as hell so I;m not. So I ordered 2 R2s off TRU.com and the grand total was $24.15. Can't beat that, esp. since I'm sick and I don't wanna go out til I have to go to work. Not too shabby.

R2-D2!! tru gave him to us today, with a $19.99 purchase. they also have the new wave minus ephant mon. he's only two per case. the r2 is cool though, and it's in perfect condition. he rings up as a penny on the receipt.

ARG! Wysh and I were the first ones at the counter at TRU this morning, and they told us NO when we asked about the R2s. I also didn't see any new figures, either. What the heck? Where were they?

I picked them all up at Wal-Mart this morning, anyway, including Ephant.

I ordered one online... only $9.99, so I don't have to buy a bunch more stuff at TRU that I already have.

the guy that gave the r2 to us was dark tan, mustache, glasses, dark hair, in his forties. sorry i didn't get his name, i was too busy looking at the r2. he told us they only had 4 in total. the new figs were on the main star wars wall, near the hot wheels. i don't know what the problem is with the r2, they were nice to us.

at target (both targets)- they have the new deluxes. the force flipping anakin, and the genosian with pod. no sign of the speeder bike though. we've had 2 good days for star wars toys, new figs, silver r2, and the new deluxes. finally.

yep- that's what the guy told us- he said they had an extremely limited amount- only 4. i couldn't tell you if the guy is right or if he is a moron. but he brought them out to the cash register and sure enough he had only 4. i would hope that they would have more for the actual sunday thing. i hope you all can get one, r2 looks sharp! and fits just fine into a star case.
kmart has basic figs for $3.

we stopped by the hamburg target to see if the other deluxe was there. they have 3 deluxe anakins left. the richmond road wal- mart still has a lott dodd, jango pilot, and watto. they should match the $3 ad that kmart is running. hamburg meijers had nothing new at all.
