Update: Hit up three more local Wal-Mart's tonight before finding three unopened cases of OTC figures. Two cases were the Dagobah wave, and the third was a mixed assortment of Dagobah and repacks...no sign of the Bespin wave yet.


Figures are ringing up for $4.77 btw...

Nice Finds JJKS, and thanks for giving us a heads up that the basics are leaking into the system.

Time to get off my duff and hit some stores I guess...  Just what I wanna do in sweltering humidity here...  Blah!

I'm all over that Lobot figure though, and Spirit O Ben.

So far, I've only seen lightsabers and vehicles.

Found all the vehicles today, but I'm still on the lookout for the Bespin wave. I've only seen the OTC figures actually stocked on pegs once, and pretty much every Wal-Mart around here is still flooded with Saga figures, so I think the best time to strike is still in the middle of the night when the pallets are out for stocking.

I found the Bespin Wave plus the Recards figures at a local Walmart.  I hated to buy them there but ended up doing so to have some new stuff.

Nice to hear these are starting to show up.  I checked Wal-Mart this weekend, but there was nothing but Hoth Hans, Throne Room Lukes and Secret Ceremony Anakins.  We did get in the OTC Sabers, Vader's TIE, as well as the X-Wing and TIE Fighters at TRU.  I picked up the Vader's TIE, since I never had that vehicle.  Now, bring on the figures...can't wait for that Dagobah wave.

Found Leia, Lobot, C-3PO, Wicket, and the repacked R2 at Wal-mart here today. I didn't buy any, as I have most of this wave headed my way from BBTS.

But still, it was electrifying to find these on the pegs.

I found the first three VOTC here at Kmart.  No sign of Luke though.  Also saw more OTC figures at local Walmarts here as will.

I have finally tasted the OTC...   8)  Due to a couple assists from Jared, I snaggled an OTC Leia, and the VOTC Han, Leia and Ben.  The OTC carded Leia is just breathtaking.  Just as beautiful as I had expected!  Clamshells were a little jacked up on the VOTC figures though, but the cards were still nice.

Found the Jedi Council screen scene with Ki-Adi, Qui, and Yoda at a couple TRUs today as well.  Looks like $h!t though.   :-\  Still plenty of the 3 OTC vehicles at all our local TRUs too.

Only 19 current OTC figures to go now...   :-\

Thanks to Ben, I found my first OTC, albeit a lone repack R2.  Still, it was a sight to behold.  I didn't buy it, but I was awfully tempted.  It felt like 1978 again big time.

I have a lot of catching up to do....why do these have to hit right after I blow away all my cash in New York? WHY? Ugh, ok, time for a Toy Run today, looking out for Bespin and Dahgobah. VOTC I'll keep an eye out for. Crap, why do these have to be showing up now?  >:(
