The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars Wave 17 (aka Fall 2010 Wave 3)

That was me. 

Congrats dude, your post inspired me to resume The Hunt. I found TCW Wave 3 remnants at one of our local Targets this morning - a minty Ki-Adi and a slightly dinged Flamethrower Clone which will become my opener.

No sign of Goji or R2.  :(  But I have at least 5-6 more Targets to hit up before the day is through, so I remain optimistic.

Oh, I also found a lone Clone Trooper from the TVC ROTS wave...weird. Possibly a return? Have not heard of this wave making it to Target yet so I was surprised. I bought him for the hell of it just so I could snag the last remaining UPC I need for my mailaway Boba.

I think one of the Minnesota peeps reported finding this wave at a Target. (!)

Our Targets have not been relevant for weeks now, guess it may be time for another series of runs. Weird that they never even got Wave 2, kinda like how Walmart never got the Aayla/Hondo wave earlier this year.

I'd love that as well, but I'd also love a free Kul Teska figure too. Odd that they haven't run any kind of promo for that dude yet. He is pegwarming big time around here. I love him but would prefer to wait for the price to dip before buying another for openers.

Very nice score!  Not much activity here recently amongst us vintage fans- we must all be broke! 

It's funny, in my case I am down to the last few items so I'm getting a bit choosier, just filling in some bits and pieces, looking for good deals, etc.

Just tonight I picked up some good miscellaneous swag - the vintage Slave 1 ramp (missing from mine) and the 2 Ewok village spit posts (that set is almost complete now too). Also scored another Star Destoyer playset on the cheap because the first one I got had bad stickers. That was all less than $35 total, so not too bad.

I think all I really have left to pick up is 2 replacement trees for my Ewok village, most of the Death Star playset, the seat and ladder for the Ewok wagon, and the AT-AT.

Oh and a vinyl cape jawa, the various DT figures, and orange hair Luke.  ;D

Both local TRU's had the new front TCW display, but neither had the new Nikto Guard.  >:(

I do see he is In Stock now on the website. I'm kind of debating it, the shipping would not be free unless I ordered something else and they don't even have Wave 3 up yet.

Hoping he shows up next week at least.

Have to agree, Wave 2 has already disappeared (and I only ever saw that at Walmart) and no signs of restocking since then, I only see wave 1 and 1.5 now.

I keep hoping my TRU will get Wave 3 in but then I remember they've never even gotten Wave 2 yet, so who knows.

I'm all caught up but only out of insane diligence.

They definitely need to carry more of the recent waves forward as transition fodder.

Whew, thanks - not worthy of adding to The List.

I do love that Palitoy stuff though, definitely aim to pick all that up someday.

Is this any different from the one released originally here in the States?

Looks like the exact same sculpt to me, but maybe I'm missing something?

Saw the blurb about the TRU coupon on the front page, one day too late.

If I take this in, will they do a price adjustment for something purchased the previous day?

I thought I recalled hearing about people doing that, but not sure. Does it work?

Bump - snagged this badboy earlier today. It's sweet. The helmet paint apps on the commander are a little sloppy, but Rex and the 2 Troopers came out very well. Other than Rex, the other 3 are no names - might have been cool to see Fives and the other dude from Friday's episode as the troopers, and whatsisname as the Comm, but no biggie.

This is a great set...just picked it up today. There's sort of a metallic eggshell finish to silver Mando paint apps that is awesome.

Even the diorama is one of the coolest ones I have seen, kind of a 3D relief effect, ala Nahdar Vebb.

Ended up exchanging my spare Mando w/Speeder Bike set, kept the mintier one.

This was helpful, as I needed the cash for new toys!  ;D

TRU had both new TCW BP's - Mandos and ARC Troopers - Yeehaw! Hot off the truck too, got there 1 minute after they opened. (Only 1 of each out, whew)

No sign of the Nikto Guard or TCW Wave 3. Will have to check the other 2 stores for those this week.

BTW, it seems really dead around these parts lately. What's up?

Some other thoughts after percolating over the weekend:

Yeah, the scene referencing the Clone DNA was highly significant, IMO. I'll admit that it appears I was wrong on this one - I always automatically assumed all the clones became Stormtroopers, but this may not in fact be the case. Or at the very least, there could be a Generation 1 and Generation 2, with separate donor material. I'm curious to see where they go with this.

Why are they hiring bounty hunters to train cadets in military strategy and operations anyway? Would you hire Duane "Dog" Chapman to train a squad of Navy SEALS? They're cosmic riff-raff, for God's sake. Why not send Tera Sinumbe out there for a few weeks? There have to be retired Jedi who could handle that sort of thing.

I continue to dig the ongoing "darksidenization" of Anakin. I'm not sure he was even half-joking about letting the Clones execute Asajj. Shoot faster next time, boys.
