With the quantity showing up at WM, I hope it takes the heat off interest in the Target reset.

I wish my case from NF would show up.  I am looking forward to ripping open the whole set.

I am most interested in the Biker Scout and the Tusken Raider.  It hurts to see all these beautiful pictures in this thread (especially the Scouts)!

My son loves when we get figures in the mail.  I guess it's good that I'm an opener for the most part - how do you explain to a three year old that we can't open toys?

Found my first vTSC figure yesterday - Han Endor.  It was the only one on the shelf, which is not suprising.  What is suprising is that Han was the left over figure.  I would have figured Greedo would be the "pegwarmer".  

Scanned it and nothing in the stockroom, either.   :'(

Just a question for you folks collecting a set of these MOC.  Does anyone else put these in different cases?  I remove mine and put them in Protecto Paks which are alot sturdier and give them a better look IMO.  Plus it works out perfect with this 2nd series because I can still keep a set MOC and score a 2nd mail-away without removing the figs from the bubble.

As far as I'm concerned the Star Case they come in is part of the item.

I found the same tape sealed VTSC at Toys today, and the nicest part is that they are only $9.99 compared to Target's $12.99.

I'd love it if the VTSC heatsealed scouts were easy to find...

Holy cow...Target is charging 12.99 for VTSC?

I loaded up at Wally for 9.96.  TRU is 9.99

I saw them at KB yesterday, they're nice and all, but I just cannot justify that kind of expense for what is basically a ROTS-era articulated figure with an extra $5 tacked on for a retro cardback that'll just go right in the trash anyway :(

Like I said earlier, I'll snag all of the Greedos and Sand People I want when Target inevitably markes them down to $1.24 each, just like last time :D

Found Han today... a good figure, but I dislike how the removeable vest keeps the right arm from going down all the way. I also don't dig hasbro gluing the Holster to Han's butt, preventing it from being moved up to his waist. Other than these two gripes, the figure is pretty damn good.

I see dead Major Bren Derlins and Bib Fortunas.... 4 each of them...

There was a coruscant wave there for a second but apparently it was some kind of mirage...

I hate small city shopping. :(

Fortunately though, I think I'm going out of town again in the next week or two- and this time not only do I stand a better chance of them at least having been stocked, but also I'll go with DPCI numbers and bug the customer service people if I don't find them. :) At least I'm getting a Han Solo, whatever happens with the rest of the line, surely I can get my hands on one of those. Right?

Speaking of V(O)TC, people talk about the tons of pegwarmer Landos out there, but I see $10-$25 for all the ones on eBay. Am I missing some kind of sect of people who would be willing to unload them for less?

My TRU has 4 pegs full of VOTC Landos for 9.99.

I've never seen a VOTC figure in person... I should work something out with somebody to get one of those Landos. I looked at Toys R Us and just saw some ROTS figures- mostly Mon Mothmas- and a few TSC figures.

I got some in clearance at Target and the rest for 5.98 each at Amazon.com.

I'll do the same this round.

I got the Biker Scout a while back using the DCPI codes. He's my favorite figure ever!


I'm looking forward to getting the rest!
