Dang it - I saw those two 2-packs last night but hesitated since the only "new" figure in the bunch was Iron Man. Hopefully they still have them in stock when I go back later today, I'll gladly pick them both up if I can get them via the BOGO...

Picked up the Imperial Troop Transport from TRU yesterday on the way home from work.

They also got in the Hera Mission Series wave and had a sale going on where you'd get 2 Mission Series packs for $15.

I grabbed another Stormtrooper/TIE Pilot pack and I also picked up a replacement Cadet Ezra/Kanan 2-pack to replace the defective one I got in my order from EE.

Too bad I missed the other two transports that must have been on the shelf - depending on when I get out of work today, I might try hitting another TRU to see if they have any in stock...

One of my Cadet Ezra/Kanan 2-packs had a Kanan with two right hands  >:(

Are there any noteable differences between this figure and the single-carded version of Kanan?

Received my order of the Saga Legends "Endor Wave" case and the Hera wave of Mission Series figures. So with the exception of getting a MIB set of the Digital Collection figures I'm all caught up on the 5POA front.

WOW - this one is going to be painful...

Yakface posted an update...

Update: Our friends at The Astromech Collection pass on info that the R2-D60 will be available in a much wider release and not limited to 6000 pcs.

I know it's for Disneyland, but I'm hoping that it's also available in Disney World - I'm going to be there in June for one of the Star Wars weekends - hopefully they'll have it in both parks. Probably just wishful thinking but I'll hold off getting one on the secondary market until I've been there and had no luck picking up the three I want...

I believe the Ezra variant is actually between the 3-pack version and the Wave 1 figure. There is nothing different about the Wave 3 figure itself except for the date stamp/COO.

Ok - thanks - I saw the pic on Yakface with the three figures, I saw it quick during my lunch hour yesterday and didn't look at it in detail - I see now it's just that the date timestamp is now in black instead of white... oh well...

Pulled the trigger on the SHIELD Helicarrier along with all the stuff I'll need to add power functions to the model this past weekend when the double VIP points started. Should give me a nice discount on the UCS TIE that comes out in a month and a half.

Can't wait to get this behemoth and put it together.

I also picked up off of eBay the following older sets:
Wolverine's Chopper Showdown
Spider-Man's Doc Ock Ambush
Hulk Mini Figure Polybag
Iron Patriot Mini Figure Polybag
Hulk's Helicarrier Breakout

I'm trying to score the SDCC Rocket Raccoon Warbird set, but so far no luck. I might pick up one of those parts sets with instructions and call it a day instead...

I'm trying to get down to just needing the sets that haven't been released yet AND the SDCC minifigures from 2012 (Black Suite Spider-man and Phoenix) and 2013 (Spider-Woman & Andrew Garfield Spider-Man) and the Iron Man/Captain American 2-pack from Toy Fair 2012. I'll probably never get those six mini-figures, but I'm okay with that, I can't justify dropping $200 for a single mini fig.  :(

I'll double check the spare I have from my Wave 3 case - but I may have one available as well. In addition to the Wave 3 Ezra Variant, which apparently has a slight variation on the logo on the back of his vest, I haven't opened one yet to know for sure...

Got my Wave 3 case with Bespin Han, X-Wing Luke & Skiff Guard Lando.

I had always planned on keeping the Stormtroopers - but I think I'm going to keep at least one each of the Ezra and Inquisitor figures for the packaging variants. I wouldn't have actively sought this out, but since I bought the case, and I have them on-hand, it makes it "easy" to keep 'em.

Nice grabs Pete!  If you're looking to sell off any of those Jedi Temple Guards, please hit me up.

Unfortunately, those are all for my "squad" of Jedi Temple Guards. I used to build squads of as many as 8 figures, but over the past few years, I've dwindled it down to 4 - mostly cause you never know when they might re-release/update the character.

I will keep an eye out for more in my travels and if I come across any, I'll pick 'em up and let you know.

Scored quite a bit over the last couple of days...

Complete Set of Mission Series Wave 2 (Wookies/Sabine/Vizago/Wicket/Bossk sets)
Target Exclusive Inquistor's TIE w/Inquisitor Figure
Target Exclusive Phantom w/Kanan Figure

4x TIE Pilot (Rebels)
4x Jedi Temple Guardians
2x AT-AT Driver

1x Gree
1x Plo Koon
2x Wookie Warriors 2-pack
2x Sabine & Stormtrooper

I'd like to score a few more AT-DP drivers, but otherwise, I'm done with these waves.

Nice to finally have new stuff flow in to Brick-and-Mortar and Online Retailers once again...

Picked up three of the movie sets today - Hulk Buster Smash, Avengers Hydra Showdown and Hydra Fortress Smash.

The Toys R Us where I found them had all of the other sets as well, but I want to hold back on some sets until June pending the Winter Soldier polybag promo that is rumored to be coming...

Picked up the following sets at my local Target this weekend:

Hailfire Droid
Senate Commando Troopers
Geonosis Troopers

That leaves me with just the Wookie Gunship, Battle Droid Troop Carrier and the TIE Advanced Prototype Polybag for 2015 Star Wars sets released so far.

I was hoping that the UCS TIE Fighter was coming out for May 4th - but it looks like that's not coming until August, so I'm probably going to hold off on the Wookie Gunship so I can have SOMETHING to buy on the 4th so I can secure the free polybagged figure - which is rumored to be Admiral Yularen. The Battle Droid Carrier would also be a great fall-back purchase, I could easily score extras of some of this year's Battle Packs to combine with a purchase of that set to reach $75 to get the free figure as well...

I guess the next Lego sets I'll be picking up will be the Marvel Super Heroes ones for Avengers 2... I'm sure they'll all be out WAY before May 4th.

Put together my UCS Slave I set today - great build, lots of interesting building techniques making it a fun/engaging build. Once it's together and in the stand, it is certainly an impressive addition to my Lego Star Wars collection.

I definitely recommend getting this set, especially if you don't already have a Lego version of this iconic vehicle.

In yet another failed attempt to find the TIE Advanced Polybag at Toys R Us - I ended up grabbing the T-16 Skyhopper set instead. Fun build
