Got TFU sets today, and the EU wave last week.  There is nothing I "need" to buy right now. In fact, I drove right past a Target/Wal-Mart today and didin't get "the urge."

Haha, I know what you mean, I've gotten that "urge" many times!

So taking advantage of the sales - here's what I picked up today...

2x Jaina Solo
2x Jacen Solo
2x K'kruhk
2x Shaak Ti
2x Utris M'toc
3x Phase 1 Dark Trooper
4x Spacetrooper

1x Rebel Pilot Evolution Set 1
1x Rebel Pilot Evolution Set 2


Dude your are is loaded! I would have been happy to find them at full price.
Still no EU wave today but grabbed a real oddity: TAC Darth Revan at TRU. smashed blister otherwise just fine. At least I walked away with something this time.

I nabbed my 2 sets of the TRU EU wave yesterday. They got in a bunch of cases, but there were three of us waiting at open and nothing left afterwards.  I paid $4.99/fig for one set and $1.24/fig for the other.  Amazing.  Also nabbed extras for friends and a couple of deluxe sets at the sale price.  Not a bad haul.

Unexpectedly picked up the Luke/Lumiya CP at a Target that has totally abandoned CPs! I am SOOO happy, this is really a great set! The shelves were a complete mess, and the only CPs on-shelf were a single Leia/Xizor set, and the Luke/Lumiya set tossed atop a mess of BPs. I already own the Vong set from a convention I attended, but am still looking for Krayt and Dare... which I have a feeling might take awhile to find! Darn! :(

Thank you for the info! But, unfortunately, I'm not the internet-buying type! :( I'm gonna have to snag these guys some other way!

Found some fresh Value packs at TRU. There were new configurations, but I picked up all the Stormtrooper sets - Sandtrooper/Bespin Han, Luke Stomie/Pod racer dude, Spacetrooper (ANH)/Gungan, Han Stormie/Jawa w multi-arm droid.

Picked up a couple more EU Spacetroopers at TRU. I hope they keep coming so I can polish this one off.

I bought $118 worth of EU today. I grabbed everything I could before the bearded Hot Wheelers rolled up behind me. I pretty much beat them so I am happy! This wave is the TAC Wave 5 of Legacy in terms of amazing sculpts & value! I love it and it was a great Wave to close out this series.

Good score.  I'd like 4 Darktroopers, but beyond that I can't see me buying more of this wave if I find them.  I'll be happy with a "1 and done" scenario on this stuff.  I doubt I'm lucky to find that Phase 1 Darktrooper at all, much less multiples.

Being that I got a $25 gift card to Target, it's once again time to enter the hunt. Hehe.

Placed a larger order on HTS, 20 figures - 16 Stormtrooper types. That should do it for the Stromtrooper grunts for my revised Battalion - 288, not including Sergeants.

That's a pretty good deal...$85.92 for 20 figures.  I might bite
