Finally broke down and picked up the Vintage Cloud City playset, not very cheaply I'm afraid, but it's a good one. The prices on these have started to jump lately and I have a feeling there may be a resurgence of interest in true vintage stuff due to the recent relaunch of the modern lines.

Flirted with a vinyl cape jawa earlier in the week, but I just couldn't bite without seeing the clear crosshatching on the cape. It just looked too smooth.

Not much left now...Ewok Wagon and Yakface POTF coin are sure to be the hardest. Death Star and At-At should be the easiest. Then I'm 100% complete. :)

Man, thanks a lot for the reviews...I really enjoy reading those. Well done and comprehensive. I love both of these BP's if only for the fact that we are getting at least SOME new stuff in each. That straight repack stuff was a drag.

Can't wait to see the next wave~

2988
Confirms what I already assumed...this will be the hottest wave of the year IMO. Great sculpts, all!

I'm pretty sure, based on previous Q&A responses, that Hasbro is planning a Geonosian-deco Gunship from the Point Rain arc. I'm guessing this would be on tap for 2011 though...

2990
There is but when he made Hoth BP's plural I had to inquire. I want to get clarification. October is going to be and expensive month between these packs and the Geo ones.

Sorry, about that...I didn't look closely. Yeah, it was probably just the one. NOT the "Big-Daddies" that are Target exclusives. Kind of confusing with all this Hoth stuff coming out...

2991
One of our Targets fully stocked yesterday for the reset too, I almost fainted from sheer excitement. They had the AT-AT, plus the new Hoth BP's, and two rows of pegs full of TVC figures. I FINALLY got my MOC Boba Fett.  ;D

Also, at TRU, in case anyone cares, they appeared to have a newer wave of Legends out. The Han in Snow Gear was the giveaway.

I picked up both of these last night and think they are really great. Love the Retail Droid, and the Squad clones are sharp too. I much prefer these to the repack sets we were seeing a few months back.

BIG scores last night...one of the local Targets had gone ahead and fully stocked for the reset. They had TVC figures, TCW figures, Legends, all the new vehicles, deluxe sets (Wave 1 only), PLUS the 4 new Battlepacks AND the new AT-AT!!!  ;D

I drooled over the AT-AT for a few minutes, but I had already made the decision to hold out for the Vintage packaged version. Hard to walk away from that bad boy though.

I did go ahead and pick up the Droids & Clones BP as well as the Anti-Hailfire Squad - they are both marvelous. I also picked up a very minty Boba Fett from the TVC line to replace the 2 slightly dinged ones I had already procured from TRU.

They also had the Rex and Ani Force Battlers or whatever. Still can't decide if I want these or not. They look pretty cool though, and are definitely in the animated style, so it's a maybe.

I have a feeling the proverbial flood gates are about to open. Yee-haw!

None of the TRU's within 100 miles of here have gotten any of these yet.  ???

And the local stores are down to getting only 1 truck a week now on Tuesdays.

I want at least 2 of these MoFo's...BADLY.

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / Re: Empty Target Pegs
« on: July 30, 2010, 12:39 PM »
I made a few Target runs last night with varying levels of success.

About half of them had started the section reset - 2 rows of pegs for TVC, 1 each for Legends and TCW. (Sorry, this is just not enough space for TCW, it is hard enough to find those waves as it is)

One location had the new vehicles on the shelves - Cloud Car, Interceptor Tank, etc. All were badly beat up boxes.

Another location had the new GH 2-packs, I sort of hate these things but I had to buy the Aurra Sing one for my focus.

None of them had new figures at all.

2996
One of the local Targets had their last remaining Legacy figures on clearance. There were 3 Willrows left. $1.51 each.

I almost felt compelled to buy them all at that price. $1.51!!!

Oddly enough, I scored the new Obi-Wan w/Barc Speeder and SideCar Deluxe set tonight at TRU. I had not heard of the Wave 1 Revision 2 hitting yet, so this was a cool surprise.

What sucks is it also means I missed the Mando with Speeder set that I am really stoked for...durnit.  >:(

2998
Kinda frustrating that we have THREE K-Marts here and none of them have gotten even a whiff of these yet. Plenty of room on the pegs too.

In all the hubbub surrounding SDCC last week, I negelected to mention my latest Vintage score - the Imperial Sniper.  :D

This completes my collection of mini-rigs, and a fine addition it is too.

One step closer!

I agree, but that is why they should be much more in control of their own images.  They should get a blog, and post pictures as soon as they are done...and beat all the fan sites.

Is it just me, or were there no TCW carded figures in the presentation?

They showed a carded Cad Bane just as an example of the new packaging style, but no actual "new" figures. I was really hoping for something from Waves 5 or 6.

It was cool to get a look of the upcoming Clone Trooper's flamethrower weapon. That must be a pretty big bubble to squeeze that droid in too. I thought the R2 from that wave was supposed to be new too though?  ???
