Yeah, but some of us are strictly carded collectors, and don't want to maim our minty packaging.  ;D

I probably have 5 actually, courtesy of Willrow, Zuckuss, Rumsleg and my duplicate Cad Bane and Luminara.

Hot damn!

Thanks, I have noted this as well. However, since STL is a lot further east than Cali, I am hopeful these could actually show up any day.

Now the new TCW figure waves that have been spotted in Cali, THOSE will probably take awhile to get here. Rats!

With me, it's not the gas I need to conserve, it's the time. I have such limited windows for hunting now, any saved effort is a plus.

The AT-RT wave has hit the St. Louis area the past couple days (Wal-Marts only so far).

To quote the great movie "Used Cars": "You gotta be jacking me!"  ;D

That's super mega-awesome. I hit a couple up at lunch today but no signs around here yet. Reason to keep looking though!

So I read this morning on RS that there's a Tank Gunner Paint App Variant - one with a Green painted Triangle on front and one with a plain gold triangle. I had to run home at lunch to see what I had - green one. So after a few frantic stops I managed to score the Gold variant at TRU. Last one on the pegs...nice.

 ;D

It gets weirder. Upon closer inspection, Farmboy Luke's neck is actually two-tone - the back half is in the normal pink and the front half is in the pale yellow which matches the hands.

Was this an ill-advised attempt at a custom paint job? Factory reject?

Not sure, but I'm sort of tempted to keep him just out of the sheer weirdness.

I went off on another bender this weekend, far exceeding my vintage budget. I did snag the Univisor Snowtrooper Variant, plus the POTF Han w/Carbonite Block and Warok. I just can't stop myself!

So I got my Brown Hair Farmboy Luke in the mail today and I smell a rat. Help me out here...

The face coloring does not match the skin coloring of the neck or hands AT ALL. It's not even close...the face is pink and the other parts are like a pale yellow. Both pieces, independent of each other, appear to be authentic. But they clearly do not match. Is this typical of some kind of foreign knock-off, or did someone pull some kind of fishy head swap?

I've seen other versions where everything matched and they looked much better. I'm thinking I should probably try for a return...

When are the other 2 new TLC BP's going to be released?

I'm of the opinion that anything Hasbro shows off at SDCC really should be released at retail outlets BEFORE Toy Fair. I don't think they're going to make it with the Aayla/Hondo wave, or that EU TLC wave either.

How many Whorms ya need? I saw about 20 last night... ;)

One of the local Wally's has a massive supply of the recent TCW waves, just nothing new.

Whatever, just more $$$ for my vintage fix...

Ahhh, good score tonight...Creature Cantina cardboard backdrop for $10! My base is in great shape, so this was a sweet deal to complete that playset.

That leaves me with exactly 30 items to go on The List!

Interesting , I checked out EE this morning and these are already listed as temporarily out of stock so I guess that first batch went all to pre-orders.

I also dug around last night and found a few carded Wave 12 on eBay (Thi-Sen, etc). But no carded Wave 11 figures. Odd.

At any rate, I am guessing these will start to show up soon at the brick and mortars.

Adam, do you have any more details on the case assortment ratios?

There are new leaked photos of what I assume is the finished product of this and Cad Bane's starfighter up now on Yakface, courtesy of Jayson. (Thanks dude!)

They both look awesome, although I'm much more excited for the HMP (Heavy Missile Platform) since it is a new sculpt (to me).
