Not like the #1 trader here at JD really needs more positive feedback... but I'll leave it anyways. One more positive tally for Jeff who as always goes above and beyond. Thanks Jeff!

It's sad how much the Northwest has dropped off as a Division over the last few years. Vancouver hasn't had much real competition late in the season for the division title for a few years.

I still think the Avs can make a run for the playoffs this year. They did certainly make it a lot harder on themselves with that loss to Columbus though. If they miss the playoffs by a point or two, that will be the game that lost it for them.

Great stuff Steve. I'm really digging that Ewok elder and the Cold-Weather Mando. :)

Greg just hooked me up with a few Hoth Rebels I had been in need of. Thanks for the super fast shipping. As always a super smooth deal!

I'd get a Dewback if it were $15.

Oh, we have TONS of the DTF wave. For whatever reason though I just haven't seen many of the Tuskens anywhere.

RIP. I really do love McQuarrie's artwork. It really was such a big part of why the OT is so memorable. I agree with Rob, it sure would have been nice to see his stamp on the Prequels.

It really is going to be quite the exciting month or so for the rest of the season. I really hope my Avs can keep up the momentum they have going and take a playoff spot. They may be the youngest team in the NHL right now, but with the talent they have, they need to find away to get past that and make the playoffs.

Man those last two games sure hurt... Especially getting shut out by Columbus at home. That sucked. >:(

I've only ever seen the Tusken once or twice myself. I was hoping these would have dropped with the Vintage price cuts. I was hoping to grab a few Tuskens if the price was right.

Really the only thing I'd probably buy at this point from TPM would be more figures like Rum Sleg. Watching TPM 3D I noticed a lot of background figures that would look good in an OT themed Mos Eisely display as well.

I think it should be noted that this clearance is NOT including everything as I've seen reported...  It's caused a little confusion among our readers though, but yeah not everything is clearanced everywhere.

I've personally seen all Wave 10 TPM figures for full price...  Some got them for $4 but not everybody.  I've only personally seen anything 2011 and older that is ringing up for $4.

And the Wave 11 Deleted Scene figures are not ringing up at all by most accounts, and are not in the system yet. 

But yeah, not EVERYTHING, or at least not EVERYWHERE, is ringing up for $4 in the vintage collection.  That's not true at all by many accounts I've read.

Definitely is the case for me. I've had to sweet talk my way into getting Wave 10 and 11 figures for $4. Really thought they all should be. Wal-Mart does such a bad job of marking them. The VIntage pegs all say $4, but it has the old SKU on it. But then they mix all of the figures, old and new on the pegs.

I added a few more figures today:

Sandstorm Lando $4
Endor Rebel $4
Ackbar $4
EPI Darth Sidious $4
Vintage Darth Maul $9

It is interesting how different (and how much better) the paint/coloring is on the Sandstorm Leia from the Revenge Slave Leia. The two figures are only a few months apart, in the exact same line, and use the exact same sculpt, but the paint apps are drastically different. Sandstorm Leia' skin tone has been subdued a bit, making it less peachy colored and more realistic and the bikini has been lightened as well. The head is where the most noticeable changes were made. The dark red lips were drastically lightened and the hair is a lighter brown. The eyes look much better too.

On that same note, Lando's head is actually the same sculpt as the General Lando. I didn't they were since the deco is so different. I think this one makes me appreciate the sculpt a lot more. It didn't look very accurate on General Lando because he has a big splotchy mustache and big caterpillar eyebrows. The Sandstorm Lando's paint toned both of those down a lot and it is remarkable how much more like Billy Dee it looks. Unfortunately, they still kind of missed on his skin color. Sandstorm Lando is too light. His skin color should be closer to the General Lando.

Just a few that'd I'd buy:

1: PK Droid
2: Weazel
3: R5-X2
4: Erdan
