Has anyone seen/picked up the Kwik-E-Mart set yet? Is it even out? We don't have Lego stores around here so I am SOL on this one.

I grew up in Northern VA so maybe your location clues have me totally confused, but aren't there Lego stores both at Tysons Corner Mall and Potomac Mills Mall still?

Not counting UCS sets, this leaves me with only needing the Mos Eisley Cantina (which I cannot find anywhere locally ???) and the Imperial Shuttle to be caught up.

My local Toys R Us stores still have the Cantina set...

Nice opportunity for those carded figure collectors who want [need?] them...   pretty much a pass for everyone else I imagine.

At least the site says they have a free shipping promo going on today (promo code FREE15), so that helps a little.

I'm still a carded collector and these have ZERO interest to me. Perhaps it's collector fatigue, but I'd much rather put that $230 towards another 20 Disney build-a-droids for my collection instead of twelve carded variants of figures I already have.

Wow! I don't even have all of the first wave yet. Don't know if I'll ever be able to pick all these up.  :'(

Even though I acquired all of the first wave, I'm wondering that myself about this 2nd wave - seeing that there is almost the same number of parts this time as there were last time, it's kind of mind numbing to think that in 2018 they might do this all again...

It would be nice if they (Disney) could communicate their plan here, is it going to be just like the 1st wave which lasted from May 2012 until March/April 2015? So this wave would roughly last until March/April 2018? Or are they planning on a much more rapid turn-around on the parts?

I'm going to WDW in June and I might be going again in March 2016 - it would be great to know that I could count on the Wave 2 parts still being there then instead of there being an entirely new wave of parts come next year when Star Wars Weekends start up again.

Best I can tell Target is getting ONE new figure each. Today I picked up Dutch, Rex, and Wolffe all at different Targets and that one figure was all they each had.

Just like HTS. Putting one new figure up per day, or every other day since nothing new went up today.

This is the description to a custom SW fig on eBay. I laughed my ass off so I had to post it here.

"Custom Jawa Banker Deathlord represents the EVIL of the Banking Empire in action figure that you would have wanted, had it came out in 1978. Made from heavily damaged vintage figures and accessories.

Fun facts of the day folks.....Did you know that bankers have started, organized and funded every single major war in the last 300 years at least? Often times funding Both sides. Did you know that for every $1 you deposit in a bank the bank can then lend $10 out to anyone else they want to and charge crazy interest on that loan, when the interest you earn by allowing the bank to use your money is......that's right folks, next to nothing? Did you know that once you deposit your money in a bank it is now no longer considered your money and is now the banks? They can freeze and seize at will for whatever reason.

Paypal.....those *@&% Suckers like to draw money from my bank account when I have perfectly available funds in my paypal account. In so doing, they have now overdrafted my bank account 7 times incurring fees from my bank totaling over $200 because they wanted to use more of my money for their evil. The bank charged me $29 every time paypal tried this because they wanted to use their money for their evil and told paypal NO. Charging someone $29 to say no to someone else is Wrong! I HATE BANKERS!!!!!!!

The figure was made by me last night to help channel my rage. He encompasses the scavenger nature of a Jawa and the pure Evil of Darth Vader! Combined they equal a Banker......but cooler.

Thanks for looking and sorry for the rant"

Go! also sells toys and other stuff...  Some are strictly calendars only though from what I've seen, and pop up at holidays I think.  But like the one at my local mall is a toy store more than a calendar store, actually.  They have SW figures as far back as TVC cardbacks and some Funko stuff, Legos, etc.  Prices blow.  They make KB look like bargain basement.
