TRU has that weird colored sticker clearance thing going on right now. The green sticker is now 60% off, so I grabbed a Toma/Eaglehawk for $18. Not bad, and kind of makes up for them never stocking any new figures.

1) Alpine v2
2) Bombstrike
3) Psyche-Out
4) Repeater
5) Hit & Run
6) Muskrat
7) Big Ben
8) Spearhead
9) Crimson Guard Immortal
10) Slice
11) Night Creeper Leader
12) Vypra


Best. FSS. Ever. I question offering the v2 Alpine over a redux on v1, but it is what it is. Glad there's no international repaints, since that's what kept me out of 2.0.

Also, the 2015 Membership figure for 3 3/4 collectors is Arctic Dr. Mindbender, presumably from the movie. There's also an add-on Cobra Wave Crusher submarine, being a repaint of the SHARC.

Figures, after I dropped waaay too much cash on a set of NV, Jinx, and Blind Master on ebay. My local store is a lost cause, with thirteen w1 Roadblocks on the pegs. Roadblock, quite literally blocking the road. (Ha! I kill me.)

Maybe this will drive prices on ebay down for Night Vipers. I wouldn't mind having a couple more, but at $40 or more each...

I wonder if Tuesday Morning is still getting the Ultimate wave in. I just found out there's one about an hour south, and I might consider hitting it if they do. Of course, there's a TRU Superstore there too, so it may be worth the trip anyway.

Today's the last day to sign up/renew for this year's promo figures.

I skipped the 2.0 sub. I'm really not that big on/care about international variants, and this set seemed to have too many straight-up repaints. There are only three figures I really want from it (Tollbooth, Keel Haul, and Cesspool), so I'll just grab them eventually. The Club has just about all the figures in their store anyway, at a limit of five per membership, which is a huge increase from the one per they allowed for the last set.

This reminds me a lot of the POTJ days. K-Mart was the only place I ever found 50% of that line. I think their tactic of getting few cases over time works a lot better in non-movie/entertainment years.

Any word on when/if Fett will get rereleased? Or should I just buy the set of wave 2 from BBTS?

Hopefully Hasbro gets to this guy sooner rather than later...

Picked up Vizam and Merumeru at WM this morning. Guess my area just skipped wave 2 entirely.

Hopefully Wave 2 gets skipped... If not, Waves 3 and later might not really get distributed until Fall at this rate.

I just looked at the wave 2 case assortment- yeah, it's nice it was skipped here. This area managed to burn off the Biggses and Anakins (mostly), so we didn't need any more.

^Wow. Love that 3rd party stuff, but it's crazy expensive. BBTS sent me an email about a week ago, saying they had a piece called Mania King (Messiah) from a 3rd party, and it was basically a Voyager-sized Galvatron. It looked awesome, but was $120.

I was at TRU today, and they put out the Supreme Starscream. It was huge, but seemed a little lacking in something, especially for $110. There was also a tag on the shelf for the Year of the Horse MP Prime, which probably means I missed him again.

Another shot at Masterpiece Grimlock? Sweet!

Thanks Jeff for grabbing a pic of this. I didn't see it anywhere else, so didn't know it was coming until this went up. Now if TRU/Hasbro would see fit to reissue the Optimus Prime set, and not that Year of the Horse thing...

Oh wow. I've only picked up Luke and R2 from this line so far, but now I may be in for the long haul...

This is terrible idea, unless the dais is offered on its own later. Why not just offer the whole shebang as a TRU exclusive instead with no regular release of Jabba?

Picked up a Black Cat at Target today, which was great since I didn't think I'd ever see one at retail. If anyone's interested in the Goblin torso piece, LMK. I only plan to get Cat, Electro and Spidey from this series, so I won't be using the BAF pieces.

TRU exclusives. Maybe we'll actually have a chance of finding them.  :)
