<font size="2" face="arial">They were still there today so I picked up one of each. They also have another case in the stockroom if the shelf is empty.

Note to loose collectors...the Obi-Wan and Darth Maul figures are IDENTICAL to their earlier carded counterparts. I compared these two "new" figures with the POTJ Obi-Wan and the Tatooine Darth Maul and there is no difference. This is just a warning to those who are planning on opening these. Regardless, the cups are great. They're made from pretty high-quality plastic. No breaking in the dishwasher this time (Those who had the original "Burger King" glasses know what I mean).

Remnans of the Yavin wave at Target in Pewaukee and the Jabba wave in Brookline. Also, the "new" Jango and Obi-wan ultras. Hope these keep showing up, I might finally get Spijek.

Lots of Clone Wars II at all our Targets. All four figs.

And another thing...

Anyone seen the glasses on the shelves? I haven't. I picked up a set on Saturday by asking for them from the back room, but haven't seen any since.

Target west in Madison had the Kamino Showdown deluxes this morning. I say HAD because someone snagged em minutes before I got there. Hopefully Ray got em not some scalper.

It looks like they also got in a case or two of the TIE Fighter wave, but according to the girl at the counter, some guy bought most of them this morning too.

Grrrr... Grr....

<font size="2" face="arial">J-Quile has been shipping since mid-January. Tanus Spijek has only been in this "Yavin" case and is the newer figure.

Anyway...Lot's of new things around the Fox Valley this morning. Mainly (as you've probably guessed) the Yavin wave at Target (Appleton, Oshkosh, Fond du Lac). These Targets also had the "new" Ultra Jango and Obi-Wan figures. Remember that these are the same figures collecting dust in every area Shopko. They are just in different packaging. Still, they're a little cheaper at Target (in the new packaging).

The new figures all look great, but I would imagine these will start to warm the pegs soon. I can't imagine kids having any idea who these characters are.

BTW: Doesn't Jan Dodonna look like he's throwing down some gang signs?

Ray, you were right. Target west just had the Tatooine wave. Target east had about 3 more cases of them this afternoon. Plenty of figs to go around. They also had their "scenes" on clearance for $13.98.

TRU east had about 10 Jabbas this afternoon along with whatever else is in the that assortment. Thats the first time I've seen Jabba at TRU.

Target Fdl had 2 sets of the first wave of collector cups on the shelf this morning, if anyone is still looking for them.

Has anyone seen the last wave of 12in. figures, Jawas, Biker Scout etc. lately? Madison, Appleton? I kept waiting for them to show up in Fdl but no luck.

TRU west in Madison had the latest wave of Unleashed figs. The Clonetrooper was gone, but they had Hoth Luke and "Crazy Chewie" when I stopped after work. Chewie really doesn't look that bad in person.

Madison West Target put out glasses on the shelf for the first time. There were two sets sitting out this morning.

They are still reloading the 3-Pack scenes. They are clearanced to $10 each. I believe all 4 scenes are still available.

<font size="2" face="arial">As far as I know, the only difference is the packaging.

Target west in Madison (finally) got in a few cases of the Yavin wave. Unfortunately, it looked like someone did an Irish jig on most of the figures since the cards and/or bubbles were mangled.

What? Walmart getting new figures??

Wal-Mart Oshkosh received 4 new cases of the "Yavin" wave last night and that would mean 4 Tanus Spijeks...right? Wrong. He was the only figure missing out of that wave. I understand that he's going for $45 on ebay...buy c'mon people, he's going to ship in future cases. Anyway, if you need any of the other Yavin figures or the Jabba wave head on over to Wal-Mart.

Oh...and if you're reading this Mr. Greaseball (you know who you are)...I found the last Tanus Spijek right were you hid it. Try harder next time and remember to bring $4.77 so you can buy the figure instead of hiding it.

Target West Madison this morning was loaded with NEW figures. The pegs were completely full!

Multiple cases of Yavin wave and Jabba wave were present.

I finally found my Tanus.

I also forgot to mention a few things I saw this week that might be helpful...

Toys R Us in Appleton and Fond du Lac each received two cases of the Jabba Ultra wave. This is the case with Jabba/Court Denizens/Wampa. There was no room on the shelf, so I would suspect these stores still have these cases in the back.

Also, the same TRU's have plenty of Chewbacca/Luke X-Wing/Clonetrooper Unleashed figures. I've never seen so many figures from one wave sit around on the pegs since Darth Maul/Jango Fett a few years ago.

The Darth Maul/Obi-Wan Kenobi collector cups are starting to stack up at every area Target. I hope the last three aren't hard to find (Anakin, Leia Slave, and Luke X-Wing).

The Ultra Jango and Ultra Obi-Wan are the EXACT same figures and accessories that were packaged as "Deluxe" figures last Summer. The only difference (of course) is the packaging.

<font size="2" face="arial">Score one for the good guys. I got my Spijek yesterday at the Delafield Wal-mart. Looks like they put out 1 case of Yavin figs.

Madison east TRU is literally overflowing with Jabba's. They also had two sets of the Obi/Jango Ultras.

Neither Target nor Walmart had any new figs as of 12 noon.

</font>[/QUOTE]<font size="2" face="arial">When I showed the figure to my four year old, his response was "Why does he have boobies?" I couldn't help but laugh, but until he pointed this out I hadn't noticed. As Yoda said "From the mind of children..." or something like that.

As far as all the Unleashed hanging on the pegs, I wonder if it's because all the card backs have rolled edges. I haven't seen any that I would even consider "near-mint"

I thought the Unleashed Leia was revealing, Tanus is even more... if you're an Elom. Maybe female Eloms go for that kind of look? I digress...

Was suprised to see tha Shopko (Point)had 2 Jabba Ultra figures on the shelf, (it's not even July yet
) Of course they were $14 a piece and I had already picked mine up from Target. For basic figures only a couple of 2003 peg warmers.

Good to here about the bountiful Unleashed figs. At least I'll have something to buy for the TRU Silver Clone Trooper deal in April. Last special they ran(buy1 get 1), there was nothing on the shelves to buy.

Hey aaron - i've tried contacting you a few times but you havent responded. Just wondering if you still were willing to take scans of those figures for me. Also, anyone currently selling large collections, I'm buying at this time.

Target west in Madison had two more Tanus figures out this morning. Like most of the figures at that store, both were pretty beat up.

Walmart west still has nothing new as far as Star Wars goes. Makes me wonder if they're planning on restocking like other Walmarts. Oh well.. plenty of Transformers to buy instead.

Anyone found the Star Destroyer wave yet? I heard they were showing up in the Chicago area, but I haven't seen anything. All my local Walmarts have ZERO figs.

<font size="2" face="arial">Join the club. Neither the east nor west side Walmarts in Madison have gotten any new figs in months. It really surprises me how crappy the distribution is. They get in a few cases and they're gone within a day or two. You'd think they'd order more... nope. There's plenty of non-selling toys like Beyblade and Yugioh though.

<font size="2" face="arial">The toy guys at Madison West Walmart "claim" they have ordered Star Wars figures since they stopped receiving them. However, the computer shows the orders are getting cancelled. Their "claim" is they realize the demand exists but are unable to resolve it locally.
