A pleasant surprise. Now where's the OT one with OT blasters?  ;)

Ugh. I was running some errands today and stopped by two of my local Wal-Marts. Both restocked the pegs with TONS of Saga Legends figures, probably 75-80% of what was on the pegs were Saga Legends. Looks like this set of Legends figs are going to take up all the peg space, preventing me from getting the new stuff. Just like 30AC... just like TSC...

Get used to it.  Hasbro seems to think that retailers can distinguish between the lines, but thats never been the case at least in my part of the country.  Lucklily I haven't seen an influx of Legends as of yet, but I'm sure it's coming.

I'm still fighting the urge to pick up all of the figures in this line MoMC.

I did that with the Saga Legends line from last year. It is very disheartening to see that they're going to pull the same b.s. this year with four versions of the Clone Trooper Officers and Battle Droids.

I picked up a Super Battledroid only 'cause a friend of mine pointed out that it's not quite a re-release of the TAC figure since they filled in the holes that were the chest to accomodate the "flames".

The Clone Weapons Locker is a nice touch, and I was happy to have a set of different types of weapons that I could give my 12 member squad of SA 501st Troopers. It's cool to have each of them sporting a unique weapon.

Oh, I'm used to it, but up until today Wal-Mart had managed to keep the Legends figs to a minimum and actually stock the new figures. Now they're rivaling Target and TRU for "most Legends figures on the pegs". Although at least Wal-Mart has restocked since 7/26...

I thought this area was the only one getting inundated with Legends. I've already written off finding wave 3 here at retail, since it's so bad.

Heck no. These have been peg warming since day one around here.

We had quite a bit at first, but nothing like what's out there now. Target really seems to like their Legends assortments.

Is anyone from here buying these? I don't think I've seen them selling at all.

Well, they did retool the Super Battle Droid to not have the holes in its chest, so I picked up one of those so far.   The rest I figure are probably *only* being bought by kids and the 173 collectors who still collect every variant of every figure on every card.   It seems a pretty safe bet that they're going to repackage this group of figures every year between now and when the line becomes unprofitable,

Mostly for the weapons sets, but I picked up an AOTC Clone (never too many of those) and a SBD, and may get some more SBD's as that's just a great figure overall and the extra weaponry is nice to have.  Beyond that, and unless i have the spare cash, I'm not buying Legends stuff.

I've so far only bought the SBD, and it's pretty nice. The BFII weapons are top notch. Might get an AOTC Clone.

I debated buying one for the clone locker, but I decided to wait...  I figure it's only a matter of time before they put some new repaints in the Legends assortment, so I'll just wait for those.  ;)
