Yeah, I finally broke down and bought an extra this weekend just so I could open the package and enjoy it. It took me awhile to find a version with non-bendy pistols.

He is a great sculpt, but that stupid hat is forever flying off...

Am sure that Cad Bane  will reappear in a BP/or future pack with articulation on his knees.

BTW: I wasn't even looking for it, but scored the 2pk Rex/Fives already had Cody & Echo.... Thire/Rys & Y/Jek

wating for the BP's  Malevolence & the other

I found the Ahsoka Spacesuit fig. I'm not buying much CW figs, but wanted this one. The next one I hope to get is Cad Bane.

What What What?

What's this about a "Malevolence BP"???

Is this something brand new? Aren't we all still waiting on the Rishi Moon, Ryloth, and Abregado BP's first?

I need details...this sounds great!

sorry my bad, it was a vague post by my part, since hardly recall stuff in one moment, i was refering to ambuch at Abregado, wich is part of Rising of the Malevolence episode.  :-[

I picked up the Y-Wing Bomber at TRU for $69.99 (They lowered the price) and I also got a free Clone commander Manual. That help justify the extra $5. The corner box was dinged which most likely damaged the insert but it's not a big deal. I was happy to find this as WM's and TRU are so loaded with ARCs. I will open tonight, look forward to checking it out.

I have heard from a few JD readers today that TRU price-dropped the assortment (Y-Wing and ARC-170) down to $69.99 (both in stores and on-line).  It probably won't help move those shadow arcs, but it's nice to see someone at TRU finally realized how far off the mark they were on the $80 price.

Ahhh...Abregado, got it. Yeah, I should have made the connection. That's a great looking BP. These are available now at ToyPalace.com, which is out of Germany. Galactic Hunter had a blurb about it this morning...they have the Ryloth BP in stock too.

Surprisingly TRU had x2 Arcs and the one Y-Wing. One Arc was in the front display and the other two were in the regular section. The Y-Wing was behind it. When I first hit the aisle I did a double glance at the price and decided to peek, glad I did. I also got the nifty manual so it made the purchase easier. I am putting that up for trade.
TRU is the only store in my area not overloaded on ARC's. I really do have the feeling it will be a pain to track down.

Just got my Rex/Fives WM 2 pack and Geonosis Testie BP. I like the BP a whole lot more than I expected. It's bigger than I thought it would be (yes that sounds creepy, and yes to fit a fig I should have known it would be that big).

Found Cad Bane today, and happily purchased him. This is one badass figure.  :)
