Picked up a second Jim Johnson concept Snowtrooper yesterday. I don't normally buy more than one of things but when you start combining Star Wars and Samurai, how could I not?

Nope. I have the super rare error version where his name is Jim Johnson.

I hope not too many people have spent the last 2 hours out and about looking for the Jim Johnson version since I mis-named him. Sorry to all who I wasted their time and gas.  ;)

Not as rare as you might think as the packaging misspells Johnston's name as "Johnson" in the figure description on the cardback.  ;D

Got the TRU exclusive Speederbike with Scout trooper set yesterday at one of my local TRUs.  I like the bike and the paint job, but certainly agree that it needs a tooling update.  The price was also a bit much, but again, I do like the set :)

Picked up two more AT-AT drivers today. Couldn't help myself considering the current figure prices...

I'm guessing no luck on extras then. ;)

I talked to the stock guy supposedly more are in the back. He told me to stop back Friday. I will let you know.

I made the same gesture when I was in the clearance aisle that day when I saw they were cleared out.

I'm still waiting for the Empire wave to hit. I just need the snow speeder Luke now. I managed to pick up the others that I wanted at a convention before Christmas.

The Empire wave remix case with Obi Wan, the Gungan and Jedi Luke is showing up at Wal Mart today.  Really good case to have out there.  I surprised myself by not buying the six Snowtroopers I saw today.  Restraint... is a miracle.

Picked up a Jawa w/ Security Droid at WM followed by Rum Sleg and Zuckuss at Target. Other than Cody and maybe some of the EU wave, I'm pretty much done until The Vintage Collection hits.

For the 1st time ever I came across the ROTS and ESB Waves, and BOY did I feel like a kid! I was amazed to see all the new stock! I purchased Plo Koon since he's my favorite Jedi, and I was upset not to find Cody. I actually saw the Hoth Luke, but I grudgingly passed on him - same with Zuckuss. I would have glady bought another figure, but I was a dollar short!  >:(
