I'm tempted to go looking for these, but I'm afraid I'll find one.  :P (Space is an issue.)

Went to TRU today, they actually had a vintage stormtrooper, but with the greening helmet it's not even worth the half-off price of $5 to me. Their Clone Wars and legends selection wasn't much better. Even with the sale the Endor 4 packs come out to like $6 a figure, good, but not great (as in, if the sets were the $25 they should be, with one at half off).

But clearance is included in the sale. Got an Evolutions Rebels Pilots II and an Amidala set for around $24. 

TOY R US sale tommorrow 15th and Saturday the 16th only, buy one, get one half off all Hasbro Star Wars vehicles, figures and role-play items.

Sy Snootles probably wouldn't make my top 20 list of most wanted figures, actually.

The mention of deleted scene figures doesn't cover a whole lot of ground (remaining  ROTJ sandstorm characters), unless there's some scenes no one knows about. I'm thinking original Sy has a better chance, then say the Amidala family from AOTC.

So the latest rumor is Darth Maul, Jar Jar Binks and R2-A5 being the second half of this wave.

R2-A5 is the Mos Eisley astromech droid that was removed from ANH and replaced by a Ronto's leg that looked bad.

I guess that's what they meant by deleted scene figures. I just hope they make original edition Sy Snootles so some folks can eat space-crow.  ;)

The Meijer sale is $6 for Clone Wars figures and $7 for Legends and Vintage. They haven't gotten any new vintage since the ROTJ waves, at least around here. I did see some Rebel Commandos.

Aqua Droid and Magna Guards were scene in the Season 4 preview, so it's a safe bet that Hasbro will ignore that and keep shipping ARFS.  :P

Funny thing, their main character reshipping policy makes sense, but there's a Target near me with a solid peg of the new Obi-Wan, the new, second-half of season 3 version. (But no other newer figure from recent cases...maybe one Cade Bane with Todo).

1583 is back online with some coupons for the Easter season.

$2 off any Star Wars purchase of $10 or more.  more for other toy lines as well.

One coupon per computer it seems. I tried deleting cookies and temp files. Maybe if I uninstall their stupid coupon printer program.

I agree, it's silly that Wookie would have  energy weapons, escape pods and helicopters but not even interplanetary shuttles (not having massive space cruisers, I could believe, but something interstellar/hyperdrive capabile hardly seems out of character).

I was just looking at the Episode Guide for "Wookiee Hunt", and didn't realize that one of the trophies in the Trandoshan's ship was a very familiar looking crystal skull - kind of a neat easter egg.  I guess I missed it on the initial viewing.

Trandoshans can hunt in the spaces between spaces.  :o

$6 Clone Wars figures at Meijers stores next week. I know Meijers covers a limited area, but in the past I got sick of sales reports at Ollies, Fred Meyer and the ever annoying Ross mentions (where you can buy cancelled toys for a nickel and sell them on ebay for $500). So this is payback.  ;)

Anyway, I don't know if it includes Legends.

Some Lego sale at Toys R Us next week, spend $30 get one of those blind packed minifigs free. I think the Mando and Clone minifig packs (or whatever) are on sale, too.

Seems to straightforward to have that many from that one story. Also, the implied battle droid two-pack (OOM and droid) for Clone Wars sounds too good to be true.

I'd believe Echo, maybe Gallia. Keeli is so so, an easy repaint but they aren't making the characters he was seen with (But then they made Mando cop and Satine, etc, so that's probably irrelevant). Speaking of such, I'd expect Greedo to be made before they got around to Citadel characters, ones that require new tooling, anyway. And the Mortis folks, too...but I'm thinking too much in order of episode aired.

Mon Calamari battle revisisted. They made the old Scuba Clones obsolete, too.

Adi Gallia is back, maybe to die?

Phase 2 helmets don't seem as off movie model as animated phase 1 helmets were. And the belts are movie style now, too, at least in some shots.

Various clones
Deluxe Fisto with aqua jet thingie.
Scuba Ahsoka
Jettster Jedi

And if Hasbro doesn't reissue the Clone Wars Magna Guard after seeing that trailer, they have no souls.

No. I was going to but was distracted by something else and forgot. I may check that Wal-Mart again, because they actually had Battle Droid 2 packs. Wal-Mart around here are notorious for having stuff in the clearance area that is still full price, like GI JOE, which apparently they've dropped but are in no hurry to unload.

Received my order of Wave 6 from HTS today - I'm now officially done with Wave 6 - I keep hoping that Wave 5 will come back in stock or I'll find it at a Target or TRU...

I finally saw some Wave 5 in a Target. Got Death Star Escape Luke, R5-D4 and Yoda. I stocked up during K-Mart's buy-one, get-one-free sale in November, so these will only cost $4.50 which, for reworks, is fine by me.

That's just like stealing!  :o  (I'm kidding...but I didn't know any store's receipts lasted that long.)
I finally refound Ackbar at a Meijer, and bought him. They had another one without spots on his head and left arm. Finally saw sail barge R2, too. But cannot bring myself to spend $8 on him.

I went to a Wal-Mart that I hadn't been before that's within reasonable driving distance (which is less and less due to gas prices), and found 9 of these TIE Bombers on the clearance aisle...for $39 each.  :P

In the grand tradition of Wal-Mart I expect them to remain that price each time I go back, until one day they disappear with never sign of being marked down.
