To quote the inimitable Hannibal from A-Team, "I love it when a plan comes together."
The Target I cleared out of all CW stock earlier this week actually re-stocked today, with...Clone Wars Wave 2! Actual new Clone Wars figures! ON THE PEGS! AT A STORE!
Needless to say I pounced on Rex, Boss, Aayla and Obi-Wan. Cards look pretty decent on all 4, though I may not keep the Aayla as I already have one MOC and loose from her previous release.
The only thing that sucked (aside from not finding Wave 3 also) was Rex. The one I got was BADLY discolored, so bad I would have guessed it was intentional if I hadn't seen photos of others online. The yellowing was even worse than the Vintage figures that had this issue, and it covers the whole body except for the helmet. Ugh. This is definitely going to be replaced if I ever find a better one.
Anyway, good day, pretty much done with this wave now other than the Rex upgrade. The character selections are so weak I have no interest in getting any of these as openers.
Now to set about clearing out some more stores around town in my ongoing war on cruddy distribution...
