Awesome snag on the sand skimmer! That's a great price!

Oh Yes!

It's going to be really hard to pick only 10 this year. All of these would be in the current 3D style:

1) Duchess Satine
2) Sugi
3) Mother Talzin
4) Chancellor Palpatine
5) Osi Sobeck
6) Ziro the Hutt
7) Qui-Gon Jinn
8) Chewbacca
9) The Son
10) The Daughter

That's right, Hasbro 4 of my Top 10 are GIRLZ! Suck on that!

Honorable mentions go to: Commander Jet and Cad Bane in Clone Disguise..WTF ARE these figures, anyway?

Not a gut-buster finale, but ended on a solid note. Kind of a screw for Sterling though. I hate that cyborg-douche.

Not sure I caught the joke with Cheryl's hairstyle that she hated - was it just like Katya's?

Loved the Creeger Rape-Van.

Weird, the online version of the ad says 2 for $10.99.  ;)

The signage on the shelves in my store this morning said $10.99 too.

Getting ready to move so probably time for a self-imposed moratorium on purposes requiring shipping. Dangit.

Aw, screw it.

I bought a carded Tig Fromm this morning.  ;D I'll just have the seller hold it for a few days until I am officially relocated.

Loving me some DROIDS!

No luck.  :(

Figures, because what are the odds of actually finding anything new at a TRU when they are actually running a sale you could take advantage of?  ::)

JTA is reporting this wave has been spotted in CA as well, but they neglected to mention WHICH STORE.

My local Target had a sign out on the shelves tonight in the SW section stating something to the effect that they were out of the Arena sets so as a raincheck they were offering Clone Wars vehicles at half price - $13.49!

All they had was a Hyena Bomber and an AAT repaint, but dang that's a good price.

This wave may be out now, there has been a sudden surge in eBay auctions for the whole lot carded, from US sellers too. I've seen at least one unconfirmed report of a sighting at TRU too, for what it's worth.

My local store gets a truck tomorrow, so we'll see.

I don't know...gas is 4.00 a gallon...did really actually profit?

The TRU is right on the way home between my office and work, and Target was maybe two miles away, so there was hardly any extra driving involved.

That's the nice thing about Richmond, everything is centrally located and easy driving distance for the most part.

Sure enough, I found this yesterday.  And now it's in a pile of starfighter vehicles, waiting to be opened.  Oh, the woes of trying to get a collection room organized!

I hear ya, I am moving next week and am facing the same dilemma. Plus I have about 20 trips shuttling swag back and forth to look forward to...yeehaw.

No mention of these at Toyfair?

Did not watch it, but Dave's review sounds about like what I expected.

Despite all the hype, this thing smells a lot more like "Rome" or "Tudors" than "LOTR". Lots of scheming, political machinations, talking. Not so much dragons, magic, elves, wizards and such.

I bought a couple of TCW figures at TRU Friday with the buy one get the second 1/2 price deal and promptly returned them both to Target with an old $7.99 each receipt.

Instant $4 profit...not too shabby.

Picked up a carded Kea Moll over the weekend.

Getting ready to move so probably time for a self-imposed moratorium on purposes requiring shipping. Dangit.

Commander Jet already! WTF?

Not complaining about any line-up with Sugi though, that is pure awesome-sauce.

Agreed the BP's sound too good to be true.
