Do a search on eBay...they have tons of vintage pieces/parts out there relatively cheap. That's where I have replaced all my missing or damaged pieces from my original vintage collection.

I saw the CW Padme/Matchstick wave, the CW deluxe wave with Obi-wan and Dooku on speeders today, and also picked up a Cad Bane for my nephew - I really hope this is the last CW wave that shows up this year - with all the various products to hunt for, heres hoping the Aayla wave doesnt show up until January.
Picked up some loose (bagged) figures today from a local shop today.
Short mouth Biker Scout (complete with blaster)
Rancor Keeper (my orig. vintage one was ****)
Nien Numb (mint with blaster)
Walrus Man (minty with blaster)
Klaatu (grayish face, fuzzier skirt)
all for $36.
Because every year they hold a few new items so that they have something new to draw you in for the big post-Thanksgiving shopping weekend. If they put them out now, you'd buy them and you might not come back. By doling out things slowly, it keeps you coming back to the store again and again. This is the way it's been at Target the past few years, it shouldn't be a surprise at this point they are holding the CW BPs and the SotE-inspired TIE Fighter for that weekend.
The Geonosis Assault battle pack is reshipping with the new Battle Packs. I saw it in the red packaging along with the Battle for Endor and Gelagrub Patrol packs. I think the CW Rishi Moon Outpost pack may be shipping with these, too.
