Saw some Thor figures with the helmet today.  No sign of figures like the Destroyer or the Warriors Three, but they were shown on the cardback of the new Thors I spotted.

Which store???

Found more remnants of this wave at the TRU across town this morning, only Bom and Barriss. I missed Fordo AGAIN.  :(

This is getting a little frustrating.

I came across a new DCPI for this line over at RS: 087-06-2320

But none of my area stores have anything with that # in stock currently. They have them designated as Star Wars Rapid Strike vehicles, $16.99.

Time to dust this puppy off. I saw an interesting blurb on RS last night that there may be a new DCPI for the Deluxe Figure and Vehicle sets, er...Class 1 Fleet Vehicles, er...Star Wars Rapid Strike vehicles. Whatever they are calling them now.

087-06-2320 - Star Wars Rapid Strike vehicles, $16.99.


I will be Jedi Mind Tricking this # today and will see what I can find out. Would be curious what others may come up with as well...good luck!

Slumpbuster Thursday....FINALLY found Wave 7 at Target after work. Of course, the one figure I wanted most (Fordo) was the only one missing from the pegs, but I snagged Bom, Barriss, and the RFT. No interest in Logray or Han, but I let a fellow collector know about the Han as he was looking for an opener so he was psyched.

The figures I snagged tonight are all awesome, I can see why people are saying this rivals Wave 3. Outstanding attention to detail.

Glad Target is finally getting some new stuff in too, they have been an utter wasteland around here for awhile now. Plus I have about ten more stores now I can start stalking for Fordo.  >:D

Dang, I will be down in the ATL just before this, probably only miss it by a day or so.

I am here on business now and there is a Coke Collectors convention going on in my hotel. You thought SW collectors were weird? Sheesh!

Saw Bridesmaids over the weekend with the wife. Not bad, probably the closest I will come to an actual "chick flick".

To me the funniest thing was just seeing the dude from the Tim & Eric Awesome show in a big time movie. Spaghet!

I checked FYE too and not only did they have no Star Wars toys whatsoever, the guy who worked there had never even heard of FYE selling SW stuff, and could not explain why stores in one state would have a completely different inventory than stores in another state.

Weird.

Our TRU gets their truck tomorrow but I am stuck in ATL still and will be unable to be there when they open, which pretty much means no new figures this week either.

I am coming up empty at Targets too.

Picked up the:
Attack Shuttle (It's here, an eBayer seller who I dealt with several times in IN had 7 in hand. I got the last one!)
Han Bespin x2
Sandtrooper x16 (Upgrading my Stormtrooper army retiring the Tantive version)

Any more details on the Attack Shuttle? Does "It's here" mean that it is actually available now in for-real stores?  :D

How did he happen to score 7 of them? Did you pay cost?

Nice score!

You know, it looks to me like they did not reduce the packaging on this line despite shrinking it by one figure. That's an obscene waste of space for a couple of battlecards and figure stands.

Way to stick it to the environment, Hasbro!

These 2 new BP's seem like a real disappointment, but not surprising.

Saw the newest wave of Legends at Target today while out hunting TVC Wave 7. Meh.

In my best Professor Farnsworth imitation: "Good news, everybody!"

A fellow SW collector here in Richmond VA just called me to tell me he found all of TVC Wave 7 at a TARGET!!!

Yes, a TARGET store actually got in new figures!

To me, this is incredibly momentous news, because to my knowledge this is the FIRST confirmed non-TRU brick and mortar sighting anywhere in the US!

It's especially great because there are a lot more Targets around town than TRU's, and they get new stock in nearly EVERY day. LOTS of opportunity (and peg space) to find these over the next few days I am thinking.

We haven't had Wave 7 hit around here at all yet either. Shoot, enough talking, I'm going out to look for toys!

Good hunting!
