I kid you not, someone returned E1 figures and they went out full price on the pegs...  THey disappeared so either someone dumb bought them thinking they got a deal on some rare goodies, or someone realized, "This ****'s old, who put this out!?" and took it away. :)  Full price though...  I just started laughing.

I wouldn't be surprised if these were hidden by someone and got lost in the shelves or something...  That happens too, and these were "popular" figures last year, mostly due to the gold coin I think, and perhaps someone hid them and they didn't get discovered till now.  I think it's possible.  I saw some McQ figures just magically appear this October at a store that, I'd bet, were hides someone made that were in a department that doesn't get cleaned up too often.  With the resets going on at most WM's right now, the spring cleaning maybe turned those up.

Good price though.  The only figure I see locally from 30AC is Juno Eclipse, which if she hit clearance prices instead of hanging on with the Legacy stuff, I'd nab what's there of her.  Good figure.

I picked up the revised Deena Shaw bun head pack. It's my third one. I head swapped on a Juno body to have more imperial broads. I wish Hasbro would exercise some consistency with the heads, neither version look like the Republic black uniform version.

I miss TAC, it was a sweet line.....

Bought an extra Death Star Trooper, Rebel Honor Guard, and a Tycho Celchu (never saw him in stores) from HTS.

I missed the boat on her on clearance. I kept passing her up and eventually realized I could remove the rank to make generic female Jr. officers. But by then, she was gone.  :P

We're still not seeing them clearanced here.  It's kind of frustrating, but for the most part they've sold out where they were hanging on anyway, even at full price.  There's a couple at a few WM's, but that's it.  Very odd figure in how it's hanging around.

It's a good figure so I really would like more, but I'll be content with what I have and leave it at that I think.  Maybe score more cheap at the Toy Show or something.

I found a 3 for $10 booth at Comic-con and picked up some more Imperial Officers and an additional Juno for a low ranking officer.

Picked up 2 comic packs (I'm thinking 30AC, can't recall, putting them here regardless)...

Got the Marvel one with Luke/R2, mostly because I always wanted that R2 because it looks like a unique droid.  Never got this, but did today for super cheap.

Also got the exclusive set with the Wookiee Warrior and the purple Neyo Clone...  Also cheap.

AAT for $3, missing only 2 missiles. has some misapplied stickers. Stupid kid. I told the lady that as I bought it..."you're kid is STOOPID!"  She smiled, nodded and took my money.

Also, a Hailfire droid missing the missiles...the launchers and the laser gun...almost useless. But it was $3.

Different place, Grievous Starfighter for 25 cents, missiles MIA, the gold laser on the bottom, and the control panel dashboard, too, which I didn't know existed until I looked at pictures online...that's two Grievous fighters I have missing the same parts. And another missing everything that can be removed, because that's what kids do.

ANH Vader missing helmet, cape, saber, whatever...he was a quarter. Comic pack Chewbacca, too.
