Got my Clone Officer and Pit Droids from HTS today, and then I walked into WM and found another set of Pit Droids.  :)

I picked up a McVader at TRU this weekend.  They did actually have some UGH figures (Mace and Galactic Marine), but I had to pass them up.  I'd probably pick up an UGH if I found a Han or Chewie one, but otherwise I just don't want to start and then try to get them all.

Made another huge score at one of the local TRU's.  Got the UGH Mace, Marine, and R2 figures, McVaders, SL Darktroopers, SL Red and Blue AOTC Clones, SL Tan Pit Droids, CZ-4s, Cantina Aliens, and SL Clone Commander.  All told, I bought 34 figures for myself, BrentS and for trades.

They must have had about 10 cases each of 30AC Wave 4.25 and the SL Wave with the Darktroopers.  With the amount they had, I could have easily bought another 34 figs!

Finally lucked out today at a WM near work and bought:
1) CZ-4 (only one they had, need 2 more)
2) C-3PO and Salacious (only had one, only need one)
3) Hermi Odle (Yes!! I may repaint his skin tone a little though)
4) Jedi Luke (this is a second one I'm converting to DS2 Luke)

They also had most of the EU characters, but no McQuarrie figs and no Wave 6.  I'm still torn on whether to get McVader though.  If I do, I have to get McStarkiller online then.

3) Hermi Odle (Yes!! I may repaint his skin tone a little though)

See, that's precisely the reason I passed on him.  Hermi Odle's skin should be more of a grayish tone, not pink.  It was a real turn off.  If you repaint his skin tone, would you please post pics? 

I made another trip to Wal-Mart today and picked up Torture Rack Han.  I also found/bought an UGH McFett.  First and probably only time I'll see one.

Picked the last three McSnowtroopers I needed yesterday day at WM. I'm completely caught up on the basic figure line.

I got SL Clone Sergeant, Biker Scout, and Orange Pauldron Sandy at Target today.  Just a few more to finish off the Legends line.   :D

got a gold coin biggs

could have had a Mcvader to but after some debate i was able to get a "scalper" shop to reduce the price on him but she then destroyed the card back by bending it in half and then kicked me out of the store for refusing to buy it. it was too much as it was at $15 for the figure, but $15 for a damaged figure that she bought from the store right beside her, forget it.

I found Saga Legends wave 4 yesterday at the Wal-Mart in Deming, NM.  My job took me there so I happened to stroll through Wal-Mart.  Picked up RA-7, TC-14 and a Biker Scout.  Also spotted a Sandtrooper w/ orange pauldron.

I saw the weirdest mix of waves 1-6 at a WM that was completely empty of SW figures just days ago.  They had a couple 4-LOMs, one General McQuarrie (no other wave 6), no Hermi but did have C-3PO w/Salacious, several Jedi Lukes, and several CZ-4s among all the other earlier waves.  Really looked like revision cases, because I strongly doubt that many CZ-4s and 4-LOMs would remain with only 1 General McQuarrie and no Smuggler Landos, if it was due to other customers or scalpers...

wait a scalper destroyed a figure's card that she was trying to sell to you for double the retail? I know scalpers have issues in the head, but why the **** would she destroy the cardback?
