Nice, I saw one of these over the weekend MISB at Ross for $10 I think.

I saw some leftovers again from this wave this morning too...Aayla and Obi-Wan, also at Target.

I never know if I'm seeing leftovers from the straight Wave 2 or the mixed wave though. I keep thinking I have missed Scuba Ahsoka but there is really no way to tell.

The Target next to my office restocked with a fresh case of Class I vehicles...I picked up another Scuba Clone Set, although the paint apps don't look much better than the first one I found. No sign of the Dropship, but that wave is bound to hit eventually. I left the Attack Recon Fighter as 2 is enough of those for me.

Based on case assortments I saw - if you find the Scuba set, that means the Dropship wasn't in the case - and vice-versa.

Doesn't mean they haven't changed things up based on lack of sales on the TPM garbage sets though, which is always a possibility.

Picked up the Geonosian Speeder Deluxe set from TRU on sale for $11.99, that seemed good enough to me. I tried to wait out Kul Teska last year but I ended up missing out on any good sale prices before he disappeared from the shelves around here, so I figured I may as well bite.

Saw a leftover Aayla on the pegs at a Target, that was about it.

Holy crap, I found a new Clone Wars figure at actual retail for the first time since January!  Of course, it was the new Obi-Wan Kenobi, and it was 2 hours away from where I live, but hey!  New figure!  Maybe at this rate I'll find Boss and Rex by this time next year!

On another note, despite this being the first new Star Wars action figure I've found at retail AT ALL since the Vintage Deleted Scenes wave in February (which, by the way, is the last time ANY stores near me got ANY new SW figures), I almost put Obi-Wan back.  Even now I feel like I bought him out of obligation more than actual desire to have him, if that makes any sense (it probably doesn't).  Kind of sad, really, but hey, the Lego Monster Fighters "Crazy Scientist and his Monster" set I bought at the same time was well worth the money I paid.

I always feel that way too, especially now when we are so starved for new stuff. I already have dupes of all the Wave 2 stuff and I still feel a strong compulsion to grab that one pegwarming Aayla at my work Target.

Stopped at a WalMart on the way home tonight and they got in more Class I vehicles and they still had them at the clearance price of $9 - so I grabbed another Scuba Clone set for that price. Couldn't resist...

Nice score, Pete!

I saw the Scuba Set and Recon Fighter at TRU yesterday, but already have 2 of each so was an easy pass. The scuba set's paint apps were even worse than the two I already have, too.

I hit four Walmarts and a Target last night and didn't see anything good out there.

I've only seen one figure from wave 2: Obi-Wan.  And that was back in early May.  I bought him, but I can't say that I like him substantially more than the 2011 version.  Boo-hoo.  Besides that one find, there is no sign of anything passed wave 1 in my area.

I have not found a new Clone wars item to buy since April 28th. Thanks Hasbro for making this hobby so enjoyable for my son and I. (rolls eyes while he thinks about the attention span of 7 year olds).

I found Obi-Wan (again) and Captain Rex at Walmart this morning.

If someone were wanting Armored Savage Oppress or the CW Bossk figure loose, you can get both on the cheap on Hobbystock.cn's Ebay page...


Clicky To Go To The Store!

Good prices too, especially when, if you're like me, you never even saw Savage armored ina  store.

Good tip on the Bossk...I may pick one up tonight. I was hoping to snag an opener UBP on some kind of sweet clearance but that is not how TRU rolls, I guess.

I did purchase a Hostage Crisis BP that reappeared at my work Target for 50% off. I would have preferred it cheaper, but it's the only one left around town and I figured it would not last long. Nice to have something to open for a change.

Saw the Republic Sub and Recon Fighter Class I sets at Walmart over lunch. They hit first at Target here, then TRU, and finally Wally now. The shelf tag said 16.47, but I did not think to scan them, may have been even cheaper.
