Scro, let us know when you get the meena if it was the cream one or not.  The 2 I bought on ebay that looked like the cream one but was the salmon.  Hopefully your deal turns out better than mine.

I still dont mean to sound skeptical, but if troopers like those above cant find em, I am really wondering if these bad boys do exist?

This figure does exist I have had a few and saw more. Granted since they cancelled the original wave for them they have been scarce then again the Pink face ones were the sought after ones back then.

Made a run to a few toys r us's and came up empty handed.  Last tuesday the stores were freshly stocked and there was a wide range of figures in the two packs.  This week it was all polis mason and vaders medical droid.  I guess we will see what happens around here in the next couple of weeks and we can only hope that a lost shipment of white face meena tills will make its way up to gran3131 and Hoth territory.

The salmon, the cream, or either?

Erik...found a salmon, by the way, and it's been the only one I've seen within a 150-mile radius

I've had no problem finding the salmon colored meena, its that blasted cream faced meena that is causing a real thorn in my side.

Scro,

Up untill the end of last week I was searching high and low for this figure as well.  I am to busy right now but the search will continue on friday.  So far I have hardly seen any new two packs in the minnesota toys r us's and for the most part the new ones I have seen have been jedi, or polis mason and vaders medical droid.  We still have some time, not much but some.

I believe the shroud of the darkside is falling upon us in this quest.

Holy  :dogshit: !!!  I actually found what appears to be the Holy Grail of the Episode III figs...the Cream-Faced Meena Tills!  I found one today at Walmart, along with only 3 other figs (no more Meena Tills, or I would have picked them all up for you guys!), and priced to sell at only $4!!!  I wasted no time and when I checked it against my other Meena for comparison, there was no doubt I found our girl!  Keep your vigillance, Troopers!  I guess she IS real!

Pat,  That is a great find, hopefully, others will show up.  Do you think this figure was a left over from the stock room?  I assume It had not been there long.

Yeah, I'm guessing they were cleaning out something, as there were 4 figs total, then later there were none, and just 30 minutes ago there were 2 more figs that weren't there before, and all the rest was bare, so I'd keep checking your usual haunts for awhile before they totally reset things, as stores should be cleaning out their closets.

Nice score Pat. I have only see n the salmon colored Meena, and only twice at that. I got out of the varient craze after the whole AOTC debacle, but I wouldnt mind tracking this one down. Might be well worth it.

I was the same way with the variants...but this year I actually found all of them!  I have passed on the 2nd generation Bly (yellow armpits, no brown colorings), #rd generation R4 (corrected "64" without sticker), and 2nd generation Gree (Lighter green visor).  I believe I do now have all of the rest, and only because I found them easily.  I have even seen multiple times the variants listed above, but passed on them.  I only picked up this Meena TIlls becasue it has been so hard to find across the country.
