Well, they did retool the Super Battle Droid to not have the holes in its chest,

I didn't know that. I'm looking for an excuse to pick up at least one Legends, that might be it.

I always rearrange the pegs at the local Target and Wal-Mart to put the CW, BAD and Legends figures on the right pegs...I've also stolen the shelf tags for the Legends at both stores.  I don't think they order by scanning the tag anymore but a guy can at least be passive aggressive

Pulled the trigger on a Legends fig today, the Super Battle Droid. He's "just different enough" for me to justify the purchase and other than the Yoda w/Kybuck I'll be skipping this sub-line this year. Unless there are some deep discounts to be had somewhere.

Think I saw wave 2 on the pegs. Battle Droid 2-pack, Darth Maul, Vader...

Picked up my first Legends figure, the Super Battle droid, just because it doesn't have the flame holes.  :P

I think the minus flame holes, came originally with the TRU Geo battlepack, silver version

Actually (and this might just be mine), the silver on in the STAP Attack BP still has the flame holes on the chest.  The "Raiders" SBD in the "Battle on Mygeeto" BP doesn't have the holes, however, so I think that's the first appearance of the non-holey sculpt.  Unless there was a running change to the STAP SBD that I haven't seen yet.

I think the first non-holed SBD was the gold cmic pack one.

No, it had holes for grenades to attach to it.

I saw the second wave of SL today: ARC & BARC Troopers, Maul, 501st, Shocker, E2 Clone Captain & Battle Droids.

I didn't pick any of them up but I did notice that pack in Clone Locker is different as it no longer has the blue striping on it or the Republic insignia. It's essentially plain white with minimal weathering and the faux venting. I wonder if the contents of the lockers are the same?

I'm looking forward to finally getting to army build SA 501st, because they were pretty non-existent around here last year. I'll probably also pick up a few BARC Troopers.

I kind of wonder if everyone is going to build the 501st and they will be non-existent again?  Oh well it's another crack at it.  Heck, I still want to pick those up and the red shocktroopers and AOTC troopers.

Do these SA 501st clones have any of that crap on their boots?
