Went on a serious toy run this morning and hit up 2 WalMarts and 2 Targets:

Wally: 3 x Kitik Keedkak (gonna need a few Yam'rii to attack the bandana wearing, sniper rifle toting pre-cyborg Grievous when he comes out).

Permanently passed on the 4 other "Walmart 5".  Terrible figures the rest of them.

Target:  4 x Elite Corps clone, 2 x Appo, 2 x Combat Engineer, 1 x Felucia Betrayal

Also I noticed that there must be 30 of each anniversary tin at a Walmart, shouldn't be long before they hit clearance now.  KB has dropped them to $15.99

The end of this week brought the end of the Saga Collection for me.  A friend got me the Clone Engineer at a local comic shop, and a Thursday visit to TRU surprisingly turned up my one each of Holo Obi-Wan, the Elite Clone, Vader's Astromech, and Commander Appo.  Another friend picked up Mace's Astromech at a Wal-Mart out west, so I'm doing until the 30th Anniversary stuff starts to hit.  Always nice to see the end. :)

After hitting our Target stores a couple of times over the weekend, and traveling to the Wal-Mart across town, I'm basically caught up again (aside from some extras).  I had good luck and picked up the following at Target on Friday:

1x Commander Appo
1x R4-K5
1x Holo Obi-Wan

Then, on Saturday we traveled across town to the "other" Wal-Mart, and I was able to score the exclusive wave there (which shows little signs of showing up at our local store, since we have a metric ton of Enboo figures):

1x R4-M6
1x Kitik Keed'Kak
1x Nabrun Leids and Kabe
1x Labria

Then, on Sunday morning we hit Target again while we were out and about and I picked up:

2x Elite Corps Clonetrooper

I'd like to get a couple more extras of the Elite Corps and Appo, if I can find them, but its nice to at least have one of each.  I was kind of surprised, but the only figures I didn't see anywhere this weekend were the Padme and Yareal Poof.

Does Vintage still count? I picked up 4 Hans and a Greedo for a buck apiece at Palmdale SWM.

A friend of mine sent me Aurra Sing and R4-M6 now if I could find Wave 9.
I remember my dream now.

Yesterday I got Appo, Elite Corp, Vader's astromech, Labria, Leids/Kabe and Felucia. Appo has a paint error, though, so I still need to find another. Only other TSC I want is Poof.

Is that the gray area I see in the center of the blue chest stripe 501st logo?  Some of mine have it.

No, it's the little stripes that go on either side of every trooper's helmet.



On the lower part there [Tac Ops pic for reference], that's sort of tubular. They're completely missing on the helmet's right side. EDIT: Apparently those are vents, not "stripes".

Finally scored the Endor Rebel Trooper (black).  Never saw them at WM or Toys r Us.  Found this one at a KayBee Outlet store.
