I saw the Thire/Argyus/Luminara wave on the pegs at Target this morning.  The CW stuff has really been coming in fast and furious lately, but not so much with the Legacy stuff (particularly at retail).  Of course, I keep finding these figures like a day or two after I have an online shipment on the way ;).

Wow, thanks for posting that Brian. I had not heard of the new CW figs showing up at Target yet - that is great to hear! I will have to start re-focusing on them in my daily Hunts.

What stinks is I will have almost no time to drive around looking for new toys tonight or tomorrow because of all the new TV. (Flash-Forward/Fringe and Clone Wars/Dollhouse is a wicked 1-2 punch on consecutive nights)

Maybe I'll take a half day off tomorrow...hmmm.

I picked up the whole new CW Wave at Wally earlier today on my lunch hour. Luminara and Argyus look really great. These were worth the wait.

Now bring on Wave 10!

Picked up Kit Fisto and Mace Windu today. Yeah, I'm behind.  :) But these are great figures. I like this style when it comes to Jedi.

Grabbed Argyus, Luminara (who is a great figure), and the AAT Driver Battle Droid at Wal-Mart today.  Once again, however, Hasbro packed the Battle Droid in a ridiculous stance, and his limbs are warped.   :-\

Found Luminara today - found the whole case, but the new BD wasn't there. (???)  Luminara is fantastic.  ;D

Picked up Ahsoka's starfighter at Target.  It's really nice; I'm really digging the lime green accents on it.  I hope they do Kit's fighter next.

I also really like the fact that they picture her droid, R7-A7 in the ship on the box, but then in small print on the back give you the "figure sold separately" line.  What a crock!  In the latest Q&A they come right out and say that they don't plan on making R7 in the next few years!  What, we have to keep using Goldie and R2 in *every* CW fighter and Y-Wing out there?

Anyone find any of the new BP's yet? Any more sightings of the Crumb Bomber?

I'm already jonesing for new product...

Why yes, I bought one today...funny you should ask.  ::)

I've barely even had a chance to look at the outside of the box, but I am super psyched this is off The List now.

Bring on more new figs! I'm ready for Matchstick!

Picked up some stuff to open up...

1x Captain Argyus
1x Luminara
2x AAT Driver Battle Droid
1x Commander Thire

And I also scored a Y-Wing - the box is beat-up, so I'll probably open it, but not until I find one that in mint condition.

Found a MIB Y-Wing on my way home so I picked that up too.

Opened up the beat-up Y-Wing, nice vehicle, wish the price on this range was at least $10 less.

I'm really bummed that apparently there is nothing left out there for me to buy.  :-[

It's weird not being on the Hunt, especially on a Friday, which is usually a great "find" day.

So ready for those new BP's and Deluxe Vehicle/Fig sets to hit...

I'm so jealous right now.  >:( Damn, can't wait to pick up Luminara. And I need an Argyus for my Asajj to stab in the back!....uh....spoiler alert?  :-X
