Found Rick at a Walgreen's a few days ago, but nothing else.  Out of like 6 Walgreen's that I checked, only 2 had Rick, but no Governor, no Andrea, etc.

I got a big smile on my face this past Thursday when I walked into my local TRU to see the entire wave 1 and an extra Luke and R2 just sitting on the shelves. Let the peg/shelf-warming begin!!!

 >:D

I guess if my sense of amusement was that shallow, I'd be smiling too.

Not really sure why there would be a need for another Yavin Ceremony Han.  Sure, the VC version sucks, but it's basically just ANH Han with a medal, right?  Just take the awesome VOTC version & slap a medal on him.  Presto.

Well, the new 6" line certainly isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea, and many of us are creatures of habit.  The 3.75" line feels right to many us because we've been collecting it for such a long time.  Why reinvent the wheel, right?  Personally, I love the new 6" line.  Maybe it helps that I don't view the 6" line as a replacement of the 3.75" line, but merely something to augment or supplement my existing collection, much like Gentle Giant, Sideshow, etc.

I think it might be a mistaken notion to believe that when Fett is released at retail that he'll be readily available.  I think he'll be impossible to find & everyone & their grandma will be hunting him down.  The frenzy for Fett will continue to be at an all-time high.

FG, what's a good price on a Super Nintendo?  Just curious...  Have mine, and considered selling it but never really knew what direction to go.

I've seen "hybrid" units like the ones mentioned in this thread that will play regular NES & SNES games for about $50, give or take.  Original SNESs seem to be going anywhere from $50-$75.  I bought mine with 4 games & 2 controllers for like $30, which I think is great.  Now I'm going nuts trying to find "TMNT: Turtles in Time."  I managed to find "NBA Jam" though which is like frickin' crack.  I can play it for hours.

I bought a Super NES today at a price I couldn't pass up.  Old school is where it's at!  Well, at least that's what I tell the kiddos.  Now to hunt down some games.

So were is C-3PO? How can you have R2 without 3PO?

Right?  Then again, it's the same company that gives us an updated Yavin Ceremony Han, 2 updated Yavin Ceremony Luke figs, and yet, no updated Yavin Ceremony Leia.....

Found leftovers at a Hastings today.  Luckily, one of the leftovers was a Biker Scout, which the only one I really wanted from this wave.  I know it's just like the one that came with the TRU Speeder Bike, but still, one can never have too many Biker Scouts, right?

The big problem with finding this wave is that most stores, at least here locally, are only getting 1 case in, and each character ships 1 per case.  Nabbed a Sandtrooper today at Target.  I love the weathering on him, really nice.

A boot leg of a boot leg.

Right? 

Looks real good.

I didn't originally plan on buying Maul, but once I saw him in person, I immediately nabbed him.  He looks great.  Picked him up along with R2 at TRU last weekend.  What's even better is that they had the BOGOHO sale.  Since I plan on getting a few Stormtroopers from Wave 3, I passed on the Sandtrooper.  I wasn't very impressed with Luke.

Why oh why does Hasbro feel compelled to put a frickin PT Obi-Wan figure in each & every line they make?

Bespin Luke & the Stormtrooper look great.  Definitely picking those 2 up.  Curious how 3 waves into the Black Series, and no Darth Vader.  Oh, but we're getting Annie.  Yippee!  Oh, & of course, Obi-Wan.  Gotta have multiple Obi-Wans, always.

I'd definitely like to see them redo Yakface, but I'm quite content with Ree Yees & I think they did a good job with POTJ Tessek. 

I think Wave 3 is the point where I'll start collecting from this line.  Waves 1 & 2 don't interest me at all.
