Mine either. On the phone today, they refused to even admit they had any SW product. I called about VTSC and was about to give the DCPI when she asked me what it was. I said "Star Wars figures". She tells me, "We don't have any Star Wars". I said, "No Star Wars product at all?" "No, we don't have any Star Wars yet". ::)

I got a second Tusken at Walmart. They had a ****-ton of nothing but Han and Greedo. (My Tusken was already on layaway.)

I stopped by Wal-Mart yesterday afternoon and they had those end cap displays full of the VTSC.  They are all packed in the cardboard displays, so I even got to take one of those home too.  Not sure what I'll do with it, but I thought I'd take it just in case.  I picked up 3x Biker Scouts, another Han Endor, and a Tusken Raider.  I'd like to get a few more extras, but thought I better cap it at 5 figures for the day since they are $9.96 a pop.  But, either way, I'm caught up with the VTSC for now, so I'm quite happy for that.  Still no new basic figures, just looking for Cody at this point.

Using the DCPI, picked up all VTSC figs except Greedo... just can't bring myself to pay for that felt vest yet.  Picked up 2 Biker Scouts.  Guess I'll have to break down to buy Greedo so I can get the GL Stormtrooper.   Still looking for Skirmish BP.

Really?  All I have heard is that it is pure crap.  I left it on the pegs myself.

I originally thought our Rodian friend would be hanging around for clearance, but by the looks of TRU, Walmart and Target around here, he's never going to make it that far.

I stopped by Wal-Mart yesterday to pick up a few extras of the VTSC.  I got a third Han (1 to keep carded, 2 loose), as well as another Luke X-Wing and Tusken.  As I expected, the Scouts were all picked over and gone, but they had a few of everyone else - and lots of Greedo.  They also freshly stocked the basic figures on the opposite side of this "middle aisle display", but of course they had plenty of all except Cody.  The only figure I need to get caught up at this point, at least until Mos Eisley/Tatooine shows up.

Picked up a Clone Wars Gunship today. Cost is $44.99 plus tax or $47.96 in my neck of the woods.

Edit: Let me clarify. My 12 year old son was with me, and he works with us in cleaning my wife's work 1x a week and earns money for doing this. He has a CD that he saves into (30% of the $50 he gets a month) and saves the rest so he can buy stuff when he sees something he wants.
 Anyway, he pointed out to me that I DID NOT buy this, but he did and it is his. I wrote a check and he had to go with me and withdraw the money so I could deposit into the checking account. Long story, but its important to him so thanks.
