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.

Another strong effort last night, can't believe next week is the Season Finale already. Then again, I like the short seasons. There's nothing worse than a show treading water just to fill out the schedule. (Office, Family Guy, etc)

Picked up a carded, unpunched Wicket to complete my Ewoks collection. I'm officially done with this line - woo hoo!

DROIDS uber alles!

Ugh, busy fortnight, picked up a carded Dulok Scout, as well as a carded Thall Joben and a carded Jord Dusat.

I love these crazy animated figures.

They're part of the same line, nothing changing.  Prices could go up or down I suppose of course, but they're just future waves of the Deluxe Fig w/Vehicle line is all.

Yep, future waves...the first of which was supposed to have been out last month.  ???

Considering Jesse was about 4 months late to the party, I figure we may see that next wave with Castas, Boba and Grievous sometime around SDCC.

Pete - glad you found your Jesses! I may have an extra if you need it, I am up to 3 now but I had to put one up for auction to try and mitigate the price raping I was forced to endure. Don't think I want any openers either...

I picked up another Jesse at Walmart today too, Jesse.  :D

Ugh, another 7.4 Magnitude quake off the coast of Miyagi this morning. What an ordeal for those poor folks.

I don't think anything over 7.0 should really be considered an "aftershock". Freaking buildings were shaking for over a minute in Tokyo.
