Picked up another At-At Driver. Now if I could just find another Hoth R2 Id be set.
I remember my dream now.

Sounds like the Geo wave is showing up at a few Targets on the west coast...and I thought I spent a lot of money last year.  I may wind up spending twice as much at this pace.

I saw a report online (from Texas I believe) of the Geonosis wave being found at Target as well.  Just when I thought I was done looking for a bit :).  I picked up the last Hoth wave figure I wanted this weekend, when I found R2-D2 at Target.  They had the entire wave packed on the pegs, aside from the Vader, which I still haven't seen.  Not so sure I want it anyways, so I think I'm "caught up" for now...until the Geo wave starts showing up here.  It kind of hurt to pay that $6.99 price for a basic figure though, I had found the rest at Wal-Mart.  Oh well, happy to have the figure though.

Oooh, Geonosis wave 8)

Picked up four Hoth figures (in addition to the case I bought).  I snagged another couple of AT-AT drivers (is this just a repainted Saga Tie Pilot?), another Veers (armor on, armor off) and an extra Gonk droid.

Good grief!  I guess we should expect that since we are now in February and all and these seem to be coming out at a lighning pace, but dang my wallet needs a break (especially paying $7 a figure  :'().

At this pace the Naboo wave should be out by April...

Nah, there are pretty big differences in the helmet sculpt particularly around the helmet eye lenses, and the poseability of the right arm at the elbows.

The TIE Pilot right arm cannot be straightened out and fully extended like the AT-AT Driver's.  Plus, the left arm is sculpted permanently straight with no joint on the TIE Pilot.

Looking at these 2 figures in my hand right now...I LOVED the TIE Pilot when it first came out, but now that I have the AT-AT Driver, it is light year's better.

Bought a set of the Geonosis wave for Jamie, 2 Clones and a Scorch for myself and a Scorch for my buddy today.

I finally scored a Power Droid/Treadwell Droid 2-Pack at Target. Expect a review soon. Target also had a Snowtrooper, 3-4 AT-AT Drivers, 3-4 General Veers, and a Battle Of Geonosis Yoda, proof that the BOG Wave had been there.

This week I snagged Veers and 4 Gonk Droids/Treadwell Droids. The Hoth wave is here in abundance, having seen all of them in multiples for the past 2 weeks.  I only bought the 5 figures as I have no  interest in any of the others.

When the Geonosis wave hits, I only plan on getting Sora Bulq, Sun Fac, and a quartet of Republic Commandos (for customizing purposes, I'm not a Clone fan in the least but they'll make good base bodies for armored mercs ;) ).

Minnesota seems to be stuck between waves at the moment, but I did grab another AT AT driver and hoth gonk to add background pieces. It is tough to think about multiples at $7.00 each with the number of figures coming out.
