Matchstick has got the be the hardest figure ever to find...  After I scored one yesterday, I went to three other stores hoping to continue my luck.  One had this huge aisle setup with the SW figures.  Lots of the recent ANH, ROTJ, ESB and ROTS waves, as well as parts of the said CW wave - just the Matchsticks had already been cleaned out.  I'll keep hunting as I'd rather not pay for one off ebay at the moment.

Scored Matchstick, Padme, Ziro's Assassin droid and the AT-TE Gunner this morning.  Also got the Rishi Moon outpost battle pack and Obi-Wan with the Freeco bike.

OK, another Matchstick was not so hard to find.  I went to the ghetto Wal Mart of my town, where people tend not to buy action figures, and scored another.  Same store had all SW figures down to $6.00 8)

I bought "Adventure" Padme, another Admiral Yularen (for the table, anyone want the Admiral? If so $3+shipping-PM me if interested)

I got my CostCo exclusive AT-TE in the mail yesterday...this thing is monstrous and totally worth the $$$, IMO. It was a long time coming but well worth the wait. My Clone Wars collection is officially complete!

Yesterday at Toys R Us where I live there were a lot of new Star Wars The Clone Wars Figures.  I only picked the Space suit Ahsoka Tano, Cad Bane, and the Space Suit Anakin.

For the FIRST TIME EVER, there were no TCW figures at my local Target! Instead, there was only TLC stuff! Wowzas! That NEVER happens!

Oh, and the Obi-Wan and Dooku Deluxe sets finally made their appearance here. Those two were the only Deluxe sets available, besides the Can-cell set.

Picked up Whorm Loathsom yesterday. A figure that was a pegwarmer a month ago has now officially disappeared from my local WM, as I bought the last one.

Brian's Toys now has the Holocron Heist and Jedi Showdown Battle Packs in stock and available to order. Hopefully this is a good sign they will start showing up at retail soon. I wasn't planning to buy either, but with such a dearth of new product lately, I'll take what I can get, even repacks (shudder).

Has there been any confirmation one way or the other if any of the figures in either the Jedi Showdown or Holocron Heist battle packs have paint op variations when compared to their single-carded release versions?

I am 99% sure they are straight re-packs, but I don't have any hard evidence to verify that. I just seem to recall Hasbro mentioning this as the BP direction for the future, repacks versus new product. From what I can tell from looking at the pics closely and comparing them to the carded versions, they are identical.

I do hope I am wrong about that though, I hate re-packs.

Found Whorm Loathsom, Jawas, and ARF Trooper for the first time EVER - all at a Walgreens. Does anyone know whether or not the ARF Trooper is harder to find? Because I'm regretting not picking him up.  ::)
