Scored Rex, Magnaguard, and the Firefighter Droid at WM tonight.  First time seeing them at retail, but I haven't really been hunting for them so this was nice.

Wowzers! Scored both Cold Weather Gear Anakin and Obi-Wan at a Target that has not put up any 2010 Star Wars products at all. If I remember correctly, I saw Captain Rex, Commander Cody, Cad Bane, Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Cold Weather Anakin and Obi-Wan, all featuring Nahdarr stickers. Pleasantly surprised, except I was puzzled why only Cold Weather Anakin from TCW 2010 Wave 2 was present on the shelves, without a Sidious or Talz in sight. I wouldn't expect CWG Anakin to be the last on the shelves.

Because those snow figures are part of a new case assortment...the other figures from the original wave are not. Sucks, because I really want a Magnaguard for openers and I am continually denied.

Makes sense. I'm getting tired of all these lame repacks and assorted cases with 60% old figures and the rest newer/in-demand figures. Hasbro has been doing this ever since TLC debuted, and they're still keeping at it even through TVC, too.

From the case I saw, there was Captain Rex, Anakin, and Obi-Wan, all from '08 Wave 1, and Cold weather Anakin and Obi. Why would there only be 2 "newer" figures in the entire case - Cold Weather Anakin and Obi? So, overall, that's 2 of each character in each case. These cases are beginning to clog the pegs - I've never seen TCW 2010 Waves 1-2 on shelf. And I really want an Aayla Secura. >:(

Picked up my first figures from this line last night at WM. Rex, Cody and Stone. They're pretty rad.

Stumbled across 2 cases of the Rex/Snowbi/Stone remix wave at Target and picked up another Snow Rex as my original had a rather goofy splaying of the ear flaps that bugged me. Was surprised to see any figures there at all since at least 2 of the others I have visited recently were cleaned out entirely.

Now resigned to picking up my openers of Hondo and Aayla from eBay.  :(

While I don't recall seeing Aayla listed, but I do recall seeing that Hondo is getting re-released in the 2010 Shadows of the Darkside packaging, so if you can hold out for that re-release, you'd probably be better off.

Really? That's interesting, I don't remember seeing Hondo on the list! I'll for sure pick him up, though, because I never got him the first time around. I wish Aayla was getting repacked, since her character is a favorite among fans. A much better repack choice than, say, Asajj Ventress again, although I know how much people sure like her.

I'm noticing, from web reports and my own local store findings, that Target seems to slowly be getting the newer TCW cases. Odd. They went with TCW 2009 products up until June 2010, but lately I've been finding cases with Snow Obi and Ani.

Here's the case assortment as per YakFace...

The Clone Wars Collection Wave 5
1x Rex Cold Weather (20954)
1x Cad Bane (20955)
1x R4-P17 (21467)
1x Shaak Ti (21465)
1x Boba Fett (21466)
1x Embo (21468)
1x Hondo Onaka (29778)
1x Zombie Geonosian (25274)
1x Clone Trooper Draa (25275)
1x Clone Commander Jet (25278)
1x Quinlan Vos (25277)
1x Cato Parasiti (25276)

I think the CW version of Shaak Ti has a lot to do with the lack of a Aayla Secura repack, Shaak Ti is in this wave and the previous wave according to the schedule.

Surprise, surpise!

I strolled into TRU at lunch today on the offchance they might have anything interesting, and what did I happen to find but TWO full cases of TCW figures from the Hondo/Aayla wave earlier this year. My eyes just about popped out of my head!

I scored BOTH Hondo AND Aayla for openers, which I have wanted forever it seems like. I was on the verge of caving and going the eBay route but I'm so glad I didn't now.

Now all I need is another Magnaguard redux for openers and I am totally and completely 100% done til the relaunch.  ;D

Last night on the way home I scored the second wave of the "Shadows of the Darkside" Clone Wars figures. Since I'm getting them all for the MOC collection, I grabbed the entire case so that I could get them now and take advantage of TRU's BOGO.

So I picked up:
  '10 CW01 Captain Rex [repack]
  '10 CW02 Obi-Wan Kenobi [repack]
  '10 CW03 Commander Cody [repack]
  '10 CW10 General Grievous (with cape)
  '10 CW12 Captain Rex (Cold Weather Gear) [repack]
  '10 CW13 Cad Bane [repack]
  '10 CW14 Clone Pilot Odd Ball [repack]
  '10 CW15 Asajj Ventress [repack]
  '10 CW16 Super Battle Droid [repack]
  '10 CW17 Ahsoka Tano [repack]
  '10 CW18 ARF Trooper [repack]
  '10 CW19 Battle Droid [repack]


Not a bad start to the new stuff....

Got my order from TRU.com with TCW Fall Wave 1 plus the Interceptor Tank. Psyched to have these, but the cards were a little banged up, and the Tank has a definite smush. I foresee some swapping out in the future...

Found Aurra, Grievous and the Mando Police Officer but no Visla along with all the vintage collection today at my TRU.  Fantastic haul and at BOGO too!   ;D
