Did the price go up to $24 at Wal-mart too?

Found it at Target in Latham NY, very cool!  I've been on a kick lately to open up a lot of the carded figs I've gotten over the last 4 years (or so), but I haven't opened any of the battlepacks, I'm sure looking forward to getting this one opened.

I've still not found one...  Nor have I found Wave 6.  I'm getting very frustrated given the coolness of both.  Enjoy your packs you bastards!   >:(

There has been no sign of Wave 6 around me either, I did get lucky with the Yavin set though.

I've got my pack and picked up most of Wave 6 yesterday! Ahh, so nice. And, yes, I am a bastard.  ;) You'll get them soon... I found a helpful Redshirt, otherwise I'd still be out of luck with Wave 6 figures.

That sucks Jesse....I'm actually getting sick of seeing w6 (minus the skirted trooper) and the new BPs....Give it time though - it's only been a few weeks since they've been out.  Bring on w7 and all the new overpriced cheap out Hasbro BPs!   :)   :-\

Pitt's always in the back of the pack for getting stuff...  It's just that this stuff is A) cool, and B) happening when SW is getting scaled back for SUmmer movie toylines, so there's just a ****** drought going on here right now.

It doesn't help too that we haven't really been deluged with ANYTHING of the Legacy line...  I'd say besides Wave 1, we didn't really ever get a huge glut of anything.  Of course that leaves us with Yarna's out the ying yang.  Even Wave 5 though is picked over here, and not 100% littering the pegs.  That's the Legends line's job.

We have means of taking care of our Yarnas here in Minnesota.  ;)

Someone had the idea of making a collector/consumer-based store-to-store transfer system.  As you are preparing to go on vacation, buy up several Yarnas or what have you from your store, and return them to a bare peg equivalent store elsewhere.  This way, those folks starved for figures can have some of the extras we big city folk are hoarding  :-*

Actually most of the "chicks" out here are pretty hot.  Not too many heffers believe it or not.  I think Steve was just talking about our migration though I'm not sure how it works in his part of town.  Me and a buddy of mine bought out the 25-35 Yarnas and Organas from one Target and then returned them to stores that are less travelled (at least in our group)  Since then this Target has been stocking 2-3 cases each of Legacy and CW stuff per week as opposed to being just bogged down with crap all the time.  Give it a whirl.

Would this by chance be targetted at the Pawtucket RI area?  That way when anyone who works at Hasbro goes into a local WM they would find 60,000 Yarnas.
