The DCPI should be 1990, the same as the 30AV collection.

I just bought my last wave 2 figure, another Quad Clone. Feels weird, but great, to be done one of the waves already.

My stores are the biggest rule followers ever, so I doubt I'll be able to get anything before the 26th... :-[

I saw a Falcon tonight at Wal-Mart.  Didn't bother trying to buy it, as I'm thinking I may wait for a sale if I get this ship, but it certainly is very cool.  Very hefty box too.  Not terribly large though, to the point I'd call it a shelf hog...  I've seen far worse.

That was all there was out though so I just wandered on home from there.

I heard online that Shopko stores have been putting the Legacy/Clone Wars figures out early without any problems, so I checked our store out yesterday.  Sure enough, they had gobs of Legacy Wave 1 and Clone Wars Wave 1.  The only catch...$9.99 each.  At that price, I had to pass on grabbing everything (although I was tempted), so I just grabbed 2 Legacy figures to get something :).  I figured Yarna would be a figure that wouldn't be out a lot (not sure of casepacks myself), and they had only one - so I got that figure and a Han.  The Yarna has a 1st Day of Issue Sticker, and they had a fair amount of those available (more so in the Clone Wars line at this store).

I did not know that these were going to be out on 7/26, good to know. The Hoth Reconl is on the tops of my want list this year. I was skeptical of the Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol set, thanks for the warning, I may pass on that one.

I guess my pre-release day luck is at an end. My Target finally took everything off the shelves for Saturday.  :P

At this point, what's the point of removing it not even a full 3 days out? It seems they left it out long enough it's almost a waste of time to try and follow the rules. You really did have a good run, sounds like you picked up just about everything.

Let's hope that you're right about those awesome army builders such as the Mon Cal and Quarren.

Ok, here's everything I've gotten this week (going to include the Clone Wars stuff too).

1x BMF
2x AT-TE
1x V-19
1x Homing Spider Droid

1x Hoth Recon Patrol BP
1x Speeder Bike Recon BP
2x Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol BP

2x Padme Evolutions
1x Imperial Pilots Evolutions
1x Rebel Pilots #2 Evolutions

2x BD01 - Han Solo
2x BD02 - Luke Skywalker
2x BD03 - Chewbacca
2x BD04 - Leektar & Nippet
1x BD05 - Ak-Rev (1st Day Issue)
1x BD06 - Yarna (1st Day Issue)
1x BD07 - Bane Malor (1st Day Issue)
1x BD08 - Darth Vader w/Removeable 2-piece Helmet (1st Day Issue)
2x BD09 - Obi-Wan Kenobi in Clone Armor
3x BD10 - Scuba Clone
2x BD11 - Saesee Tiin in Clone Armor
2x BD12 - Snow Bunny Padme
3x BD13 - Lancer Droid
3x BD14 - Mon Calamari Warrior
2x BD15 - Quarren Soldier
3x BD16 - Clone Trooper w/Quad Canon

1x GH01 - Commander Gree (1st Day Issue)
1x GH02 - Kashyyyk Trooper (1st Day Issue)
1x GH03 - Battle Damaged Vader (1st Day Issue)
1x GH04 - EVO-Trooper (1st Day Issue)

1x CW01 - Anakin Skywalker (1st Day Issue)
1x CW01 - Anakin Skywalker (opener)
1x CW02 - Obi-Wan Kenobi (1st Day Issue)
1x CW02 - Obi-Wan Kenobi (opener)
1x CW03 - Yoda (1st Day Issue)
1x CW03 - Yoda (opener)
1x CW04 - Captain Rex (1st Day Issue)
1x CW04 - Captain Rex (opener)
2x CW05 - Clonetrooper
2x CW06 - General Grievous
2x CW07 - Battledroid
2x CW08 - R2-D2

2x Commander Fox

So tomorrow night at TRU Midnight Madness, I'm primarily going to focus on getting BD01 - BD04 and CW05 - CW08 1st Day Issue Variants. The extra regular versions I got of each of those I'll be returning once I replace them in my MOC collection with those eight 1st day issue variants. Just to have two of each army builder from Wave 2, I'll also try to snag one more Quarren. So nine figures in total.

I'm also hoping to score 2 Holo Grievous figures so I can be done with that exclusive and if they have the Dagger B-Wing, I'll grab at least two of them, if they don't, I'll focus on getting the rest of the Evolutions sets I need. If they have the B-Wings, I'll really just be looking to get one of the Rebel Pilots #1 Evo sets and then plan on picking up more pilot sets at a later date.

I'm glad I can go into TRU tomorrow night focused on a few select items as opposed to having to try and scramble to get everything.

Yeah, I know.

Jeez all that before the release date, so what the hell is the piont of a release date, are they afraid we'll get some ultra secret from the movie on the cardback?  These are toys!

Sorry I'm going through SW withdrawl I've stillyet to see anything new out in the stores and I'm jonesing for tomorrow/tonight.

Great scores Pete congrats on all the good finds.
