Scored a complete set of the latest Clone Wars Deluxe figures this morning (AT-RT, Cody w/BARC Speeder, Anakin w/Desert Skiff).

I already had my MIB Anakin and Cody sets, so I opened those figures today - the AT-RT will stay MIB until I find another.

I don't know what it is about the Anakin set, but I really like it.

The Cody set isn't much to write home about. It would have been nice if they had given this version of Cody the same hips as the ARF Trooper figure, they already put a different torso on the figure (there's no peg hole in his back for Cody's jetpack) so why not take it one step further and give us the ball jointed hips?

If memory serves, none of the CW Cody's have a hole for a jet pack.

Saw the new Deluxe at WM, however the one set I did want (the ARF with AT-RT) was gone.  Lots of Freeco's, BARCs, and Anakin on sport whatever...  Not one AT-RT.  Bummer.

Am I thinking of the realistic line version of Cody? Oops, my bad...

Oh well - then basically the Cody figure is the same figure as the individual release figure.

Really lucked out today at lunch and scored the remaining 2 figs I needed from TCW Wave 2: Stone and Sidious. I was freaking ecstatic...Target had 2 cases freshly stocked on the pegs.

Once I snag the TRU Exclusive STAP I am back off the Hunt...hooray!

Found the AT RT last night.  For $16, he's pretty cool.

Picked up a Thi-Sen at Wal*Mart today. Not a Clone Wars collector (only have a handful of impulse figures so far) but what can I say? I couldn't resist a good Talz figure, and that "Trespass" episode was the best one so far IMHAHO.

Also saw the Anakin and Desert Skiff set and felt a real twinge of POTF2 nostalgia. If only Buff Luke could've had those cool goggles.

I picked up two more AT-RTs this morning. They make nice escorts for the Turbo Tanks.

I always see the left overs.  Oh, well.  They'll start to hang out eventually.

I've seen tons of the Hondo wave out there, but none of the latter wave.  I don't really care though...If I see some of the new figs then I'll buy them on a case by case basis as I do with all CW figs.  I won't lose sleep if I never see them.   :)

Picked up second openers of TX-20 and the Talz Chief today for my loose CW collection. Both figures are really nice IMHO.

Picked up four TRU Battledroid w/STAP exclusives today - one for my MIB collection, two to open and one for a friend.

Nice set, very happy to add it to my CW collection. Not too thrilled about the price, since only a year a half ago we were getting two STAPs and two figures for $20, but thanks to Hasbro math, the economy has resulted in a 150+% price increase!
