    I thought this was released, but everywhere I look aside from scalpers prices, there aren't any online, and nothing in stores either. Can anyone inform me what happened to him?

    He was released, I can promise you that. I bought one at a local wal-mart. That was the one and only time I saw one. I know there were more than that though because I saw some of his wave mates out too.

    He didn't last very long in my area. He was all over the place for about two weeks and then gone. Forever.

    Found him a couple places back in spring. He's a neat little toy, glad I got him. He's gonna get a yellowish/white repaint in the HFTD line here down the line.

    I found one at Walmart last Spring. I'm glad I purchased it.

    Was it short-packed? I saw a grand total of six (own five - troopbuilding), but never as many as it's line-mates.

    I'm getting him in September thanks to a generous Board Member. Best part is that I only have to pay 8 dollars for him and Breakdown.

    yeah, I kept wasting my wife's time whenever we'd go to a dept. store looking for him. I finally posted on junkion and got one from a board member for $15 shipped. bigbadtoystore has a japanese one for preorder for $20, which still seems cheaper than the going ebay price for him.

    Saw him -once- in store, bought on sight. I hope Sunspot's easier to come by; I really like the mold.

    I've seen him two times. One time was at a Walmart after weeks of searching from NC to SC and found four of them and got one. Then I saw only one at another Walmart back in June.

    I'm so glad I got one.

    I live in the same area as O Vader and I saw him several times. I bought him the 1st time I saw him and now I regret not getting a 2nd one. My 10 year old step son opened his Mindwipe and I wish I had skystalker to go with him, but I'm not opening him now!

    I bought two, one each found on separate occasions. Wish I could've gotten at least another half-dozen of the buggers. He's a super cool figure and while I'm glad he's getting a redeco in the HFTD line... Sunspot doesn't look nearly as nice as Skystalker.

    I never saw him in a store...come to think of it, I never saw any of the figures in his wave in a store. I ended up getting those guys from HTS and Skystalker from eBay.

    I picked him up quite some time ago...back when he wasn't expensive. If I'm remembering correctly, I got him for $12, including shipping.

    From where I am, he's available in a couple of stores but stocks were limited. Did see more of him when I travelled over to Hong Kong. :)

    Go into the junkion and make a "I'm Looking for ROTF Skystalker" thread.
