I found another case of ESB figures at Target last night.  This was the first case release because R2-X2 was on the pegs.  I bought him and another AT-AT Driver (to open).  The only two figures missing when I got there were the concept Snowtrooper and Willrow.

I'm surprised that the revised ESB case is hitting hard at my local stores. Scored Agen Kolar and Zuckuss (boy, is Zuckuss short!). The individual ROTS and ESB waves weren't hitting AT ALL for the longest time, but my local Target did the smart thing by ordering the ESB revision case... which included the ROTS wave!  :D

Bought the "Birth of Vader" BP yesterday. Passed on the others.

Not only are these sets just repacks, it doesn't even seem like Hasbro tried to set them up as scenes like they have been before. Hasbro Dude "Just face him towards the other fig, that's good enough, I need a smoke break".

Where'd you find that? TRU or Target?

I am trying to confirm if any of these have shown up at a Walmart yet.

Thanks!

Took advantage of TRU's 2 for $10.99 sale and snagged Agen Kolar and Plo Koon. Didn't plan on picking those up but what the hey.

My TRU never even put up sale signs in the SW section, but they did with the Ironman stuff which are now all fully stocked with figs falling all pegs all over the place.

I scored a slew of great figures at a local convention. I was, simply put, in Star Wars Hasbro heaven! I scored the ROTS Commander Cody, Kyle Katarn CP (FINALLY!!), ESB Hoth Luke, and TPM Holo Palp. I also scored some older era (ROTS 2005 Aayla Secura, PTJ Plo Koon and Aurra Sing) figures. I was amazed to find a whole stand dedicated to TLC red-phase figures!

Finally got a Dewback.  Despite his prequel era look, I think he's pretty cool. I really like the detail that went into the sculpt and the articulation on his feet.  I'm not sure I'm ever going to get the cool trooper to sit with any measure of realism though...

Picked up the Imperial ARC on clearance at WM for $40 with a $5 off coupon.  I'm such a sucker for repaints, but this was much better than $65.  I think $40-$45 would have been a better price point for the dlx assortment IMO.  It's a shame that they overpriced this and the Y-Wing.  The dlx line is dead, right?

I've bought 9 Scanner Techs at WM in the last 2 days or so...  They're really putting a lot of the ESB2.0 Revision case out.  I still don't see many LUkes, Wilrows, teh green astromech or Concept Snowie anywhere though.  The repack snowtrooper and scanner tech are also moving pretty well.

I picked one up for $45 shipped and it's a really nice repint. I agree with you on the price it should have been.

back to topic:

I picked up the R2-MK set off eBay for $29.95 shipped.
This product drought really sucks, even the Joe guys are feeling it too. They bored and waiting for new product in the Fall as well. Hasbro is banking too much on Iron Man (Which will sell well) as they let their other brands suffer....

Product droughts leads to anger. Anger leads to disinterest. Disinterest leads to the line suffering.

I hit a Factory 2 U and scored two Sunbar packs. Will add the Anamin's to my trade list.
