View Full Version : how rare is pilot obi wan?

08-18-2005, 12:25 AM
i'm not sure if this deserves its own thread or not, but i decided to create a thread cuz there doesn't seem to be that much activity going on.

i'm just wondering how rare episode 3 pilot obi wan is.

first of all is it in stores? and if it is should i try to find it and buy it now cuz it is rare or can i wait a while longer.

thanks for the help.

Hrm, I never got one. He's a super articulated figure? The first one shoulda been instead. I do want him because of that reason. I need one to pilot and a better fighting pose than the Mustufaar crap they gave me....

I thought I'd never find Vader operating table, but I did. Ya just gotta keep checking back in stores and new stuff can pop up ;)

He's pretty rare. I'm not sure when he hit the stores, but there haven't been many hitting atores.

Goes for like 12 maximum on ebay...or so the last few i saw did.

yea they are out, probally be out every where near the end of the month. So keep your eyes pilled. They just started putting out the 48 to 53 line, and repaints here where I live. So keep hunting, you will find some soon.

Its all location and timeing now. It doesnt matter that it is out, theres still a good chance itll be snatched up before it can be found.

Who are the clones at every extremity ?

I found my Pilot obi-wan a couple of weeks ago when I went to WalMart at the Very back of the pegs. That is where I found my Bacara, too :)

They are coming out, they should be out everywhere by the end of september and then we will have to wait for the next 12 that should start appearing in October I think.

Nobody saw my previous post ? :confused:

I dont really get your post.

08-31-2005, 03:25 PM
Nice pic??? :confused:

I picked up two Obis a while ago. One is now at the birth of the twins scene and the other is just lying around. I play with him all the time and put him in different poses. He'll eventually find his way into a scene of some sort, just none needed for him at the moment.

Don't tell me you're a Wal-Mart hatin,' union lovin' commi or something. Wait, that commi ending made no sense.... You know what I mean though. I think.

well wal-mart had lower prices, then ran other buisnesses out of buisness, and jacked up the prices.

09-01-2005, 08:37 AM
Yea walmarts is 5.88, kmart is 6.99, toys r us is 7.99. The only place im gonna buy from is walmart, unless another store has something rare, which would be worth it though. But still walmart is slow putting stuff up.

09-01-2005, 09:36 AM
Really? Well, my town is probably alot more populated than yours because they still have those low prices and competitors are still in business. Target is the only contendor for the most part. Crappy K-Mart doesn't count. Who goes there anymore for anything but toys, computer games, or last minute school supplies when everyone else is sold out? :p

09-01-2005, 10:19 AM
I dunno if it's a rarity...But it's hard to find prolly. :/

09-01-2005, 01:47 PM
Well I hardly go to Kmart's. But I did find two Red Royal Guards there, so that was luck. There was also that I could have got that first few OTC figures of 05 there, but I didnt go there until I got those four figures off of ebay. So I could have saved some money there. O well, and on to wally world, I guess they didnt have anything new in until last week, which was the repaints and 48 to 53 figures. It took them over a month or two to even get them out. Kmart and walmart is all that I have in my town. And plus its gonna be hard getting out to check if theres anything new out cause of the raising gas prices.

Man am i glad i dont drive..lol..wait no im not...aww man..

At least im not gerorgia, friggin 6 bucks a gallon.

09-01-2005, 07:35 PM
Georgia charges $6 a gallon or did I read that wrong? :eek: EDIT - I saw the news on Comcast. Holy ****, that's like Britain or something. It's 3.20 here at our local Shell station. It jumped 40 cents. There's a BP near school that charges 2.90 yet. I guess I'll refill the Jeep on the way home when needed.

Target is the best. Well, figures vary from place to place, but Target is the nicest around here. A bit higher prices mean it's not as busy and it's clean and not a mess. But you do what you gotta do for toys I guess. I put up with TRU after all :p It's like Hiroshima at mine.

Yah target stores are nicer.

My TRU is more of a nagasaki, or if it were a movie. "Hiroshima II: Nagasaki".

09-16-2005, 05:55 PM
I was on my way back from my Brother's wedding in Washington DC, I was at Dulles, and to my surprise they had EVERY figure I was looking for. The AT-TE Gunner, Battle damage Anakin, and all the clone repaints, some commander bacaras, tons of SA clones. It was awsome, lol. Too bad I didn't buy any, though >.<

You're right. Target rocks.

You didn't get any McCusto?! But would'nt be fun to plop tons of SW figures onto the counter? Just think about the cashiers dropping jaw...:drop2:
