Awesome scores, Pete!

I was able to snag the 2 new Target exclusive BP's out of their back stockroom using the DPCI trick.

Ambush at Abregado and Assault on Ryloth are officially off the list!

I was surprised at the size of these things, I guess I had heard they were changing box dimensions but I didn't know what to expect. They are flatter but taller.

So unless we end up seeing the Hondo Wave sometime in December, I think I am done for the year! Sweet relief!  ;D

Scored my openers from the Padme/Matchstick wave at another K-Mart this morning.

Now if I could just find a MOC repacked Destroyer Droid in the Red/White CW packaging, I'll be all caught up!

I finally took down the Big White Whale today...bit the bullet and bought the CostCo Exclusive AT-TE from last year with the extra figs and window packaging. This has been sitting at #1 on my modern Want List for the better part of a year. I normally eschew re-packs but this one has always had a strong appeal for some reason.

With the new product slowing down for the rest of the year, the timing seemed right. It's my early X-Mas present to myself.

Good purchase!  I still say this is one of the best exclusives that hasbro has ever made. 8)

Picked up a Rishi Moon Outpost BP this morning on my way to work. Nice set.

I also traded with a friend to get that MOC Destroyer Droid repack I needed - so now until the Aayla Secura CW wave of figures comes out, I'm all caught up with the CW line!

Awesome Pete, it's a great feeling isn't it?

I did a quick sweep last night and couldn't find the Aayla wave available yet from any of the usual e-tailers, or on eBay, nor have I heard of these being spotted in the UK yet, which are usually good indicators of an impending launch here. So I am skeptical whether we will see these before the end of the year.

On the other hand, if that TLC ESB line is hitting now out West as rumored, I don't see any reason why they cannot push out the TCW Wave 7 before X-Mas. Not sure what the advantage would be in waiting...

Agreed - with the smaller wave sizes (four/five figures) - you would think that it would be much easier for them to rotate in new figures and fill out the rest of the cases with the older figures.

The B-A-D Legacy lines seem like they would need to be much more of a "production" simply because you have to coordinate droid parts in all of the figures in the case.

I found the Turbo Tank at Costco today for $79.99. 8) I dunno what the original price was when it first came out @ stores like Target, Walmart... etc., but I hope I can get this for Christmas!  ;D

Picked up Cad Bane! AT A WALGREENS! So happy!  ;D

One of the two super-scores I've scored at this Walgreens ... the last time I bought a major figure here, it was the TAC Darktrooper. This Walgreens normally continuously gets TCW Blue-packaging Wave 1 (which pisses me off  :P), but it just now started getting the new red-carded figures.

Scored Space Ahsoka at one of those kiddie toy scores that are open only for the holidays! I'm not impressed too much with the translation of colors.  ::)

But I have Cad Bane, Space Anakin, and all I need now is Denal, and I'll be set with that whole wave!

Finally scored my Matchstick figure at Wal Mart today.  Now to find another so as to have an "accurate" crew for my Y-wing.
