Hey, anybody willing to pick up an extra one through Amazon....I can't afford to spend the extra $15 for a couple weeks (gotta buy the ROTS DVD...along with, uh.....yeah, pay rent and buy gas)?

From what I understand, it's out Friday, 10/28, and you get it free with a $30 purchase. What's stopping someone from buying $30 in mercandise, then returning it later and keeping the Holographic Emperor? Couldn't someone also return previously purchased SW items, if one has the receipts, then can buy them back again to get the Holo Emperor? Apx. $15 with shipping from TRU.com is kinda high, and unless you want the Gunship, I guess your buying 5 figures with tax to get this.

lmao. you seem to be going through what I am. I have to pay rent and buy the DVD as well. Leaves me broke for 2 weeks. Though I dont need gas money so I was able to buy the emperor.

I bought mine through amazon last night.  It saves on gas money and I wouldn't be able to find $30 of stuff I need at a TRU store anyways.

and as we all know how toys r us has all the latest and greatest sw figures (sarcasm), i couldn't see spending $30 on 5 mas amedda's or a couple of lightsabers.

I got mine this mornin'. I went ahead and bought one of the OTC Jedi Council scenes on clearance as well as a 12" Saga Padme that I will probably sell. I wanted the Council scene now I just need to get scene one which I haven't seen in ages. I bought all the others on clearance. I wasn't going to pay $20 for the darn things.

To my knowledge, these are two totally different figures. Sorry to hear some of you troopers are getting stiffed by the TRU in your area. I was under the impression that it was EITHER 3o bucks and you got him free, or you payed $9.99 for him. I'd have to say, that the stores that arent letting him be bought seperate, are just tryig to make the 30 bucks off you guys. If I was in your situation, Id be emailing TRU's corporate office, and letting them have it. Good luck guys.

That is exactly why I don't buy anything at the TRU stores, in the long run its cheaper and less frustrating.

In the two stores I went to around here (Deerfield, Gurnee IL), Deerfield was sticking to the promo, Gurnee you could find them on the pegs. I stocked up for the local crew and I may even have an extra but I want to make sure "the boys" all got one before I add it to my trade list!

As a lark I went over to TRU today (even though I've ordered through amazon), and *of course* there was nothing new to be found. ::)

It surprises me that toys r us is still in business. They don't ever have anything new and their stores are usually so run down. It's like Kmart!
