Well, Hell has officially frozen over, like everything else here. I found a fresh case of Wave 2 Mission Series 2-packs at Target this morning! And if that wasn't crazy enough, they had a 6" Boba Fett on the pegs too! I almost felt disoriented it had been so long since I saw a new Star Wars toy on a peg. That old familiar feeling soon came rushing back though, nothing beats the excitement of finding stuff in a store, at least for me.

They had 4 of the Maul 2-packs and I had to inspect them all very closely...I had heard about the sketchy paint apps but I had to see them close up to really grasp how sloppy they are. The most glaring issues are Maul's horns and a lot of errant black paint splashes around the torso arms and upper legs. Only 1 out of the 4 really looked decent enough to keep, I grabbed the second best for an opener and counted myself lucky to have had a choice.

Now I just need that Saga Legends Rex and I am good to go unless they announce something else of note for this year.

pics of the new Jaegers

Thank you!!! Those look incredibly awesome! Last I heard wave 3 was due next month...hope that is still on track.

I guess that would be about it for the jaegers, still plenty of good kaiju left to make though.

Well, it's an odd deal to be sure. While it's true that Walgreen's does split up cases among stores, the ONLY figure to have shown up so far is Glenn, and always in a pair or pairs. This is how the exclusive Rick showed up at first too, and then later they got a larger selection at each store. But Glenn is not an exclusive figure so hard to say why he is the only one shipping so far.

I do expect the others will show up before too long.

Greg, that's a bummer to hear about the 10" Daryll. I still have mine in the package and constantly debate opening him. Maybe he is better off where he is though.

Maggie and Glenn are both part of the same wave - Series 5.  ;)

ToyWiz also has a new pre-listing up for Series 6, check this out:

Rick Grimes
Hershel Greene
Carol Peletier
Abraham Ford
Bungie Guts Zombie

Somewhat surpised to see Abraham on the list since he hasn't even been introduced on the show yet. Great to see Carol and Hershel on there though, was worried we might never see them.

They also mentioned a 10" Rick figure for October I believe.

 :) :) :)

Sucks, this is exactly why I do not ship to foreign countries and require tracking on all domestic shipments. Just too much potential for trouble and fraud otherwise.

I still don't see how this makes it out in 2015...hope I am wrong, but I bet anything that gets pushed back.

The Quad Gunner was actually the Clone Trooper figure I mentioned in my list, BD16.Fordo I was lucky enough to get a couple when he came out, awesome figure. And yeah, there are a few Asajj's I need to look into, no doubt about it.

I totally forgot about Foul Moudama though! Great catch! I am adding him to the list for sure.

Yeah, I'm hoping to see the next 6" wave after the one with Bespin Luke. I assume this would be Anakin, Clone Trooper, and Chewbacca, with Obi-Wan being the carry forward figure. (I realize what an asinine choice that is, just passing along what I have been reading in the rumor mills) Really just want to see Chewie.

I'm probably most keen to see any Rebels stuff they might have to show off though, hopefully something besides just figures.

I finally tracked down a 3&3/4" Azog from an overseas seller, pricey but glad to be done with this line for the time being. Curious if we will see or hear anything at all at toy fair.

Yeah, good point, I'm still on the fence with the pre-animated Clone Wars line they did that had Durge and those guys. I'm sure I will get there someday.

I believe there were 8 figures released in that Legacy wave:
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Clone Scuba Trooper
Saesee Tiin
Padme Amidala (Snow Bunny)
IG Lancer Droid
Mon Calamari Warrior
Quarren Soldier
Clone Trooper

and then in TAC we got:
Roron Corobb
Yoda & Kybuck
Anakin Skywalker (Tattooed)
Voolvif Monn
Clone Trooper (Hawkbat Battalion)

I think that's it? I know there were some later one-offs too like L8-L9, but I think that covers 'em for the most part. If anyone else knows of any others I missed (outside of that realistic Clone Wars line) I would be keen to find out.  :)

With the Clone Wars animated line having ended, I am finally getting around to running down some of the realistic-style characters from the original Tartakovsky series. I loved the animated figures for that show but never really got into the more realistic interpretations, although some of them seemed pretty cool.

I finally started building a list this year and between the Legacy Collection BAD line and the TAC line, there's really not all that many to worry about, about 13 total I think?

In the past week or so I have picked up the Quarren Soldier, Mon Calamari Warrior, Snow Bunny Padme and the IG Lancer droid for about $5-$6 or so on average, courtesy of eBay. Not a bad deal to fill in some of these holes.

Hot damn! I found TV Glenn tonight at Walgreen's! I swung by there around 9:30pm and the girl at the counter said she had just put them out. They only had 2 Glenns though and no others from the wave. I'm glad I got to choose because one was only so-so in the face but the other one was absolutely spot-on amazing. Best likeness capture yet, IMO.

I checked 2 other stores while I was out but they both only had stuff from the last wave still.

It's only a matter of time now though...happy hunting!

Got my 18" Gipsy Danger in the mail yesterday. Holy crap. One of the Top 10 toys I have ever bought in my whole life. Six pounds of pure awesome! I love this thing!

Can't wait to see what they have coming up at TF...

I bought a couple more phase II clones st 5 Below today, and then swung by Tuesday Morning and picked up the last TCW class I set around these parts, along with a Walmart DVD 2-pack for good measure. Not much clone wars stuff remaining out there...
