Picked up the following sets at my local Target this weekend:

Hailfire Droid
Senate Commando Troopers
Geonosis Troopers

That leaves me with just the Wookie Gunship, Battle Droid Troop Carrier and the TIE Advanced Prototype Polybag for 2015 Star Wars sets released so far.

I was hoping that the UCS TIE Fighter was coming out for May 4th - but it looks like that's not coming until August, so I'm probably going to hold off on the Wookie Gunship so I can have SOMETHING to buy on the 4th so I can secure the free polybagged figure - which is rumored to be Admiral Yularen. The Battle Droid Carrier would also be a great fall-back purchase, I could easily score extras of some of this year's Battle Packs to combine with a purchase of that set to reach $75 to get the free figure as well...

I guess the next Lego sets I'll be picking up will be the Marvel Super Heroes ones for Avengers 2... I'm sure they'll all be out WAY before May 4th.

Put together my UCS Slave I set today - great build, lots of interesting building techniques making it a fun/engaging build. Once it's together and in the stand, it is certainly an impressive addition to my Lego Star Wars collection.

I definitely recommend getting this set, especially if you don't already have a Lego version of this iconic vehicle.

In yet another failed attempt to find the TIE Advanced Polybag at Toys R Us - I ended up grabbing the T-16 Skyhopper set instead. Fun build

Hit a Toys R Us again in hopes of grabbing the TIE Advanced Prototype Polybag set - still no luck - picked up the new AAT set since it was the only set they had in stock that I hadn't grabbed yet...

Snagged a bunch of 2015 sets yesterday - drove to my local Lego Store to get...

UCS Slave I
AT-DP
TIE Advanced Prototype
Anakin's Custom Jedi Starfighter
Ezra's Speeder Bike
Shadow Troopers
Imperial Troop Transport
All 6 Series 2 Microfighters
Mini AT-DP (polybag)

Tried to find a Toys R Us with the Mini TIE Advanced polybag, but no luck...

Gonna hold back on a few sets so I have something to buy for the May The Fourth promotion which will be The Ep4 Yularen minifigure polybag.

They've all been pretty hard to come by in this area - so I pretty much snag it when I see it - this year the first place I saw it was Kmart and I had either $5 or $10 in Kmart rewards bucks that I used to get it - glad I did too, cause the only other place I saw it was Toys R Us and that was only once...

@Brian - I was able to score you a Rocket Polybag at the Toys R Us near where I work. PM me your address and I'll send it your way.

Interesting. The visuals look great, at least. Although the leaden use of pop music isn't doing it any favors. Yeesh.

Totally cringe-worthy - just that alone will be enough for parents to not even go near this and steer their kids away from it...

Unfortunately, still no sign of them at the TRU near where I work, and the one where I found them back on Friday was cleaned out.

I will keep an eye out for them Brian...

Not sure if anyone else here has been looking for this, but has anyone found the Rocket Raccoon baggie set at TRU?  It is supposed to be a "free with $30 purchase" item now (or $4.99 each I think), and I've been checking our store and can't find any.  Just curious if anyone out there has had any luck finding these, or could maybe even help me out if they are plentiful in your area.

I found this at a Toys R Us on my way home from work on Friday.

There were shelf tags that indicated it was free with a $30 Lego purchase - but since I'm all caught up, I just purchased two of them outright - they rang up for $4.99 each.

If I don't end up leaving work too late this evening, I can swing by there and see if they have any left in stock. The TRU nearer to where I work hasn't gotten them in yet, so I'm hoping this week they will - so if I can't score one at the first place I found them, I might have some luck tomorrow. I'll let you know.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 6

Checked out TRU a couple of days ago. They had 11 R5-G19s and no other figures on the pegs. Where did they get 11 R5s? Someone must have dumped them here. Picked up StarKiller off ebay for $10.51. Considering ebay an paypal fees, I think the seller lost money on this one.  :)

Maybe a solid case of the R5s got shipped to a brick-and-mortar store instead of staying in their online distribution center inventory?

I could be mistaken but I thought those solid cases of a single figure were for the online shops only so that they could specifically sell by-the-figure.

I also picked up the Clone Wars Obi-wan...is this a straight up recard of a previous figure? I couldn't recall in the store.

Yes (sort of) - it is a re-release of SL#13 from earlier this year that only showed up in Canada on tri-logo cards. It was in a wave with Jedi Luke (also in this first Rebels Saga Legends wave), the Snowtrooper (again also in this wave) and a Darth Maul - that I think is on a check-list of coming Saga Legends figures, but I'm not 100% sure on that...

So unless you live in Canada, this is your first chance to see this figure on a peg in a store.

Picked up openers of The Inquisitor, Agent Kallus (sp?) and Chopper this morning. I also grabbed another SW: Rebels Stormtrooper so I can have a small squad of four. Unless I stumble across an extra Inquisitor to permanently have sitting in his Advanced TIE Prototype, I think I'm "done" for the year now since I'm good with both the Wave 1 Basic Figures and Wave 1 Mission Series 2-Packs.

Wouldn't mind scoring a 2nd opener of the Build-A-Droid R5 that's in the 1st Black Series (Blue) wave - but if I never get that 2nd one, I won't be heart-broken...

Nice score Pete!

I managed to find another Chopper on a better card to keep for my MOC collection, at Target after work, so that was cool.

One thing I've noticed already is that this smaller packaging is a lot more prone to damage than previous versions. I've seen wrinkled cards, badly warped cards, and more than a few crushed or cracked bubbles, almost like the plastic is more brittle.

I've noticed that as well - I totally lucked out with the 12 I found - they must have come from a incredibly pristine case, but I found openers of Kanan, Ezra, Stormtrooper, Jedi Luke, Snowtrooper and Clone Wars Obi-wan - and those weren't in good condition at all...

Can't wait to find openers of Chopper and the Inquisitor - I'm looking forward to those figures from this first wave the most.
