TRU had the latest wave of TCW repacks on the shelf. (Actually still in the case, waiting to be shelved) CW24-29, if anyone is interested.

No new BP's, no Wave 10.

Finally picked me up a shiny new Y-Wing at Target.  Only my second time seeing it out there at retail.  Got a 15% off coupon good on any $20 SW/Joe/TF purchase at checkout.

I found Ziro's assassin droid tonight, and so I picked him up.  I figure they fit in nice with the realistic figures, and I like the nifty paintjob on him and it's the first sighting of him so why not? 

Saw lots of the Luminara wave, and the wave prior...  I've still never seen Cad Bane though.

Where'd you find Ziro's Assassin droid? Was it a Walmart, Target, or TRU?

I'm searching hard for this wave but no luck ANYWHERE so far...

Found the Freeco Speeder at WM this morning.  Was originally going to pass on this penis, but it looks really cool + this actually seems like a good deal at this inflated price point.   8)

Picked up Luminara (the last of her wave nowhere to be found on the pegs)...

GREAT FIGURE! And she's so tiny!!  :o Nice job, Hasbro ... BUT I'm gettin that annoying itch from all the times she drops her lightsaber - she can't hold it properly. 

Oh, and my Target is putting up all the new red-carded TCW. First time I ever saw the new SA Yoda and Space-suited Obi-Wan in person.  8)

I found Wave 10 at Walmart today! Padme, Matchstick, Ziro's Assassin Droid AND the Tank Gunner...all mine.  ;D

They only had 1 each on some less than pristine cards, but no way I was passing those up. FREAKING SWEET!

I just wonder if we're liable to see Wave 11 before the end of the year or if this is it for 2009. I had seen a December street date for these but who knows.

Either way, it's been a good run this year!

I picked up the new Freeco Speeder recently.  The Obi Wan figure is a nice improvement over the initial one with the articulated legs and cloth tunic.  The speeder itself is nice in my opinion, with a detailed cockpit, retractable skids, and some attempt at weathering with the "frost" on the canopy - a rarity for vehicles packaged under the CW line ;)

I saw the CW Padme/Matchstick wave, the CW deluxe wave with Obi-wan and Dooku on speeders today, and also picked up a Cad Bane for my nephew - I really hope this is the last CW wave that shows up this year - with all the various products to hunt for, heres hoping the Aayla wave doesnt show up until January.

Picked up the Red Repacked versions of Ashoka, Dooku, Cody & R2 today. I wish there had been the Destroyer Droid there too just so I could fill in all those numbers in my carded collection...

I'd be happy either way at this point. It'd be nice to have one more wave to close out the year, but I hate the thought of hunting for these in December with all that holiday madness. I got a taste of it this week and am over it already. For what it's worth, EE has this listed as "Coming in December" but who knows what that means for actual stores.

I have a feeling I'm gonna be surprised when the new Ayala comes out mostly because of her height/scale. I hope she's not as tiny as the new Luminara, Ahsoka, or the older Padme (white/purple outfit). Maybe she'd be as tall as the CW Ventress.   ???

Picked up the Rishi Moon Outpost Attack BP this morning at TRU. I'm officially done until Wave 7 or the 2 Target exclusive BP's come out. Whew!

Picked up the Padme/Matchstick/Tank Gunner/Ziro Assassain Droid wave this evening at a K-Mart of all places.

I was there looking for battle packs on sale... found the CW figures in addition to the two Legacy Collection BPs....

I also picked up MIP Obi-Wan w/Freeco Speeder and Dooku w/Speeder Bike to add to my packaged collection.
