I guess this qualifies as a 30AC purchase.  Last night I got an Unleashed Shadow Stormtrooper.

Someone picked up a Galactic Marine for me, so hopefully by the end of the week I'll have it hand.

I wasn't going to bother with the new Clones, but I came across an Airborne Trooper and couldn't pass.  Maybe I'll grab a Galactic Marine if I eventually find one, we'll see.

As per our story here on JD's front page, I found a set of figures tonighy at Sears Grand around Pittsburgh, PA.



I didn't get a whole set as they only had 2 figures, but the Marine is OUTSTANDING, and Obi's no slouch by a long shot.  Great figure from '05 with great accessories and a nice new headsculpt for one specific moment this character was viewed.

His outfit could use some wear/tear to look more "worn" from the blast and escape.

The figure's a little odd with the Grievous Guard staff and pistol though.  Gear this figure shouldn't have, actually. :)

I'm still on the fence on whether or not to buy an opener Obi-Wan. It's a great looking figure, but there's just too little that's new. :-[

New head/rebreather made it worth it to me...  It's from one moment on Utapau, but it worked and looks good.

On another purchase note, I got R2, the last TAC figure I could find, at a local K-Mart. 

R2's like Obi there.  VERY scene specific.  The "glow" paint on him for the flames and the jet accessories really make this R2 good for only one specific moment (his taking off) from ROTS...  It doesn't even work for AOTC due to the flame-glow paint aps on him.  He really is just for ROTS.  Still, he looks great...  R2/Obi are really the two figures though that are "meh" in this wave, if any are.  And I still like them a lot.

Picked up the last of the Tantive IV BP's I need today between two Targets. Also got notification that at least one of my Wave 1 cases is on the way from NFC.

picked up the rest of Wave 1 this evening, and added an extra Marine to my arsenal.  Grabbed a couple Clones for the budding Jedi as well, as those were the "extras" on the pegs too.  $7.39 sucks though for figures.

Picked up may first TAC today, Obi-Wan. Tried to score more at other Targets that had them, but they're sticking to the 3/24 street date.

They have a street date?  Didn't know that myself.
