    I've got to agree with Magik8baul. I'm in the Denver area too and it's really hit and miss around here. I've yet to see a clean Biker Scout or an R2-Q5(although from what I gather neither have a lot of people).

    Although I did find the Shmi wave at a K-mart on the west side of town, on Wadsworth and Bowles. Check it out.

    I'm not so sure that the clean biker scout exist,........i've never seen one. It's not just a Colorado thing.
    The R2Q5 may be a Colorado thing. they're not warming the pegs around here, but you can usually find them if you look hard enough.

    Dirty Scout wave

    The last wave to hit here in the North has been the Dirty Scout wave. This is the wave that includes 4 SA Mauls per case. Needless to say the once HTF SA Maul is now warming the pegs.:(

    I found X-Wing Luke at Rite-Aid today...if you have a Rite -Aid, I would check it out. But they are expensive...$7.99.

    :wavey: :wavey:

    I have yet to see Emperor's Wrath Vader, X-Wing Luke, or the clean Biker Scout. Luckily I was able to obtain them through trades or by fellow collectors who have picked them up for me. I did see about 8 Dirty Scout Troopers at a local K-Mart a few weeks back though.

    Here in Edmonton Alberta...

    Here in Edmonton Alberta (Canada)... We have been shocked by how quickly we have been getting new figures in!
    Mind you we never did get the first 14 figures on our usual trilingual cards (I think that # is correct):sob: . We did get most of them on US cards with small white french stickers on the card, but me personally, I never counted them as Canadian carded figures. Also on our Canuck missing list, the Expanded Universe series, 3 of the CTC figures (Leia w/hood, Wuher & Motti) and 16 EP1 figures! There were also quite a few missing from the POTF2 line as well...12" figures included. :sob: It used to bother me quite a bit that we missed out on so many SW goodies:toed: , but I ended up collecting all the Canadian, US and quite a large number of trilogo cards from the UK and other countries... It made me feel a little better :D
    The latest wave arrived here even before some US States got them, which is great to see! We used to have to wait over 6 months to get a new wave (i.e. FF figure's).....
    Anyway, I'm done yacking!:hurl:

    P.S. I'm not exactly sure what my point was to this message!?! :stupid:

    Shmi Skywalker

    My local Target has been stocking the Shmi Wave for the last several weeks. Been stalking the Target for X-Wing Wave and Luke Speeder Bike 12". Last time I saw the Speeder Bike, a while back, it was with Scout Trooper and there was about 50 on the shelves.

    Canadian tri-logo POTJ

    Hey BlueHarvest. Most of the first 14 POTJ did show up on tri-logo cards, but only at TRU, and for about two weeks. I've never seen some of them at all, like Tusken raider and Coruscant Guard, but I have personally seen Anakin Mechanic, Old Obi-Wan, and others on tri-logo's. Of course, I didn't get them :( because I was so frustrated at shelling out big time for Sio Bibble, Holo Sid, etcetera, that I preordered everything for the first two years of POTJ from an online store. I'm not doing THAT anymore - I thought I'd guarantee shortpacks by going this route and paying a little more per figure, but I am still screwed out of the Masters of the Dark Side 2-pack and a couple of other 'guaranteed' items.

    !?!?!?!?!?!

    Barada! You speak da truth!?!? I never seen those 14 on trilingual cards! Only with that little french sticker!... Maybe just the East got them?

    This totally suck's BIG-TIME... SIGHHHHH... I thought I had all of them! Have you seen any lately?

    Sorry my friend. When we first got POTJ in Canada (what was that, earlier this year?), they were all either U.S. cards, or had those white stickers you mentioned. About a month or so after they first hit, I saw them at TRU in Hamilton, Ontario - I think at the same time the Biker Scout first hit. Like I said, I had already preordered them, so I wasn't picking them up, and at $11.99, I would have left them there anyway. Now I wish I had picked them up. They didn't last long, and the last ones I saw were Anakin and Old Obi-Wan, and that was several months ago. I never saw them again after that. Didn't mean to disappoint you. At least it gives you something new to search for :no:
