I forgot to mention that I picked up the TRU exclusive bikerscout/speederbike set yesterday. Also picked up the Han/Spacetrooper BOGO pack.

Did you happen to notice if they had the TCW Exclusive pack with the Battle Droid and STAP too? Was thinking these would be released in tandem...

Awesome! Thanks for the pics...I'm not sure this is as compelling as the first 2 waves this year, but I'm on board for sure. Is that Toyfare on stands now?

Yes, all figures are now $6.99 at the brick and mortars, I confirmed with one of my TRU contacts earlier this week.

Both the local stores have tons of the BOGO packs, same assortments as Target and Walmart though, mostly TPM wave.

Yeah, I think you came out pretty well. Depending on the quality of the playsets, those would have been worth $25-$50 each on eBay, not sure about the total value of the misc swag but it works out pretty equitably IMO.

Picked up a Cold Weather Anakin this evening - the only new figure left from that case. Card was beaten up so I opened him up just now.

Nice figure, looks like the head is a bit too small, but otherwise it's pretty nice.

I really can't wait to get my hands on the Sidious and Talz figures from this wave, they look great.

Pete - awesome score! What store did you find him at? I haven't heard much about Wave 2 hitting any retail outlets yet...

Nevermind, I found Snow Anakin last night at Walmart, along with Thi-Sen and the Tactical Droid. No sign of Stone or Sidious though.

Oh, it's on now!

I found remnants of this wave last night at Walmart. I picked up Thi-Sen, Snow Ops Anakin, and the Tactical Droid. No sign of Stone or Sidious and I scoured every square inch of that aisle.  >:(

I kinda like that though. Now I have something else to obsess over til I complete the wave. Plan on hitting every other Walmart locally today/tonight to close these guys out.

But seriously, who would pass on the Talz? He is completely awesome!

Ah, well that's fair, then. I think we all dream of finding the yokel with the treasure chest of toys who has no idea the worth of what he's got....

Yeah, it's way more common to find the opposite...d-bags who think they're going to fund their own retirement plan by dropping a few crappy vintage figs on ebay at exorbitant prices. (ahem...Brian's Toys)

Good work, Blue Snags is coming upon my radar soon.

Wow, I did not think we could go below the Crucible Power Rangers figs, but there you have it.

Thank you, for a second I thought I was the only one who found this to be incredibly lame...

Hmm, blessed by the Toy Gods once again.

I found the whole new TCW Wave of Deluxe Vehicle/Fig packs at TRU this morning, fresh off the truck. Again, only 1 of each and no new figure re-stocks. Odd. Of course I bought them all immediately and they are AWESOME. Cody looks a little sloppy, but the AT-RT is freaking magnificent. Even the Sport Skiff is kinda cool, since I have no recollection of the original.


TRU has also dropped their basic figure prices to $6.99. And they're now stocking the BOGO packs ala Target and Walmart.

Thanks anyway. I gather it is a Felucian, my questions is what exactly is a Felucian? A big bundle of sticks? That's what that figure looks like.

Sorry, I am severely EU impaired. (Yes, on purpose)

What is that thing supposed to be? A flower? Some kind of weird thorny plant?

I could name half a dozen great candidates for this price point, including the Twilight, Separatist Super Tank, and the Republic Shuttle...there is no lack of ideas. The marketing weasels probably just don't think they can sell enough because of their spectacularly ill-conceived launching of the Shadow Arc.

I do think we'll see another Gunship repaint as well as a Y-Wing, with the red deco from the Point Rain arc.

I was shocked to find this Wave on the pegs at Target last night! First confirmed sighting at thr Big T as far as I am aware. Good to know they are relevant again.

Unfortunately they did not have the Wave 2 (Thi-Sen) nor any of the new Deluxe Vehicle/Fig packs.   :(
