Well, I gotta admit I have been really annoyed with all the people on here saying how easy it is to cherry pick a Rancor. My response has been, if you go into every store that sells them and never find a heavy booster than it still is not that easy then is it. Well, today was finally my day. Went into the local Borders Books and they had 4 boosters left and the last one I picked up was the heaviest booster I had ever held. Bought it and the whole way to the truck kept tellin myself I bought a Tank Droid over and over, you know to help cushion the blow. Surprise, finally a Francor and and adjoining Kazdan to boot. Just my luck though that this comes after I finally broke down and bought one from Auggies on Monday. :lol: Oh, well; you need two Rancors to be able to swap them. :twisted:

I'm still searching for my heavy booster. I haven't had much luck even finding FU boosters to check the weight of. Only 3 so far since the set came out.

I hear yah. If it wasn't for Borders carrying these then I would only have Target to pick from. The Targets around here are down to 1 in 4 even carrying SWM(And if you do find one they are there because some jackhole ripped the bottom open and put it back) :vader: . My LGS is about 40 minutes away, but they were heavy into SWM's a couple of years ago and now they'll get 2 cases of the set in and they just sit there on the peg because of 2 few players. I had about 3 other options, but they all closed over the last 2 years.

I have a couple targets I check for 3 3/4 inch Star Wars figures and I think I've found maybe half a dozen boosters in total over the years between them. When I was looking for the Hoth pack I went to another store way out of my way and that one had about a case worth of A&E. that's all the SWM boosters I've seen in target. The l3 FU boosters I found were at one of the 2 Barnes & Nobles I go to.

My LGS is about 45 minutes away. I get up there to play every other Friday night. They almost always have FU boosters, but they have all thier minis game boosters on pegs behind the counter. If you want to buy one you have to ask for it so no cherry picking there.

Congrats!! I have only found 3 boosters so far so I haven't had a chance to cherry pick either. :(

Congrats!
It may sound odd, but I've been trying to cherry pick a Lukes Snowspeeder (already have 2 Franors). So I picked a booster that was light but felt heaviest towards the bottom, thinking maybe that's the way it would be packed. I opened it and got another Junk Golem, looked through the commons and uncommons, nothing special there either. The last figure I pulled out...A Revan! Didn't have one yet, and was dreading the thought of spending the money on that one figure, the booster was definately worth cashing in my coin jar for!

For Luke's Snowspeeder you might as well just buy it on ebay for way less than the price of an FU booster.

Yeah, I know. But it's still fun to buy boosters, and every once in awhile you get lucky!

Yeah and you can also be like me and buy 8 boosters and end up with 4 Tie crawlers and 4 Tank Droids and the first 2 I bought each had a Wedge in them. I only pulled the trigger this time because it was that much heavier than the Tank Droid so I new it had to be a Francor. Otherwise, don't waste your money. Especially when you can get the Snowspeeder with shipping for less than a booster price.

I only have 2 Crawlers. My big one is the Troop Cart. I got 5 of those.

I just checked my stuff on ebay. I paid $10.20 including shipping for Luke's Snowspeeder.
