Yeah, I came across remnants of 3 more cases of Wave 10 last night, surprisingly at a Walmart here. First time I have seen new TCW figures there in literally months. El-Les sure seems like it has some pegwarming potential. They really should have packed Season 3 Ahsoka in his place for this wave. Another missed opportunity.

El Les has been warming here for a while.

My local Targets have started to get in Wave 10 - so I was finally able to score the last figures I needed from this wave - Seripas and one more Stealth Operations Clonetrooper.

All I need now are the Wave 12 figures and to somehow go back and score Eeth Koth, Barriss Offee and more Riot Control Clonetroopers... may have to rely on eBay for those...

I see all 3 of those fairly routinely anymore Pete, so I think some are still in the pipes.

Yeah Pete, I saw Eeth Koth on the pegs today at Walmart actually. LMK if you want me to try and snag that for you. That's awesome you are starting to see some more Wave 10 hit. No such luck here.

Found another Seripas at Target yesterday.  He's up for grabs for a MOC Ponda Baba or a loose or carded Echo Base trooper.

If you've got that stuff and need more than Seripas back, PM me with your wants I have extra stuff coming out of my ears.

Got my two cases of Wave 12 from EE yesterday. Glad to have my Clone Wars MOC Shadows of the Dark Side set now complete.

So now I'm just down to getting second openers of Armored Savage, Plo Koon's Astromech, Chewie and Even Piell from that wave.

Found a whole fresh case of Wave 11 at the local Target today, on my birthday.  ;D

Having doubles now of all of them, I left them for the next lucky soul, but it was great to see Seripas hanging on the pegs. Heck, it was great to see all of them.

Still not sure what to do about Wave 12. That whole "last wave in the old packaging" fear has me a little worried.

Did a count at a mid-MO Walmart.  Out of 40 CW figures, 22 were Obiwans.

Found the new soft goods Rex and the ops trooper today. Now I need to find the chewbacca wave. I also spotted the Shuttle at TRU for 69 bucks. I wanted to pull the trigger, but I think black Friday many bring an even lower price somewhere.

Saw the clone cannon at a Meijer last week. First time I've seen one outside of Toys R Us.

Target has CW figures on sale this week, around $7.

Found the Armored Savage/Chewie wave this morning at TRU.

So unless the Eeth Koth wave starts shipping again - the Flamethrower Clonetrooper wave can, so why not the Riot Control Clonetrooper wave? - I'm done with Clone Wars figures in the Shadows of the Dark Side packaging...

The WalMart exclusives is a whole other matter...  :-\

I've seen the Eeth Koth wave as recently as a few weeks ago at TRU.

Thanks Nick - since TRU is notorious for getting older waves in months after they've hit other chains like Target, I'm hoping to have the same luck at the TRU near where I work for the Eeth Koth/Barriss Offee/Riot Control Clonetrooper wave.

Pete, outstanding score...I can only imagine how surprised you must have been to have seen those sitting on the pegs. I think if I ever saw an armored Savage on a peg someplace I would probably have a heart attack.

That's also notable because to my knowledge this is the first confirmed sighting of the wave outside of a K-Mart or Walmart.

I still see a MOC Eeth Koth every week at this one Walmart I check, so if you ever end up with a surplus of any Wave 12 figs, even the crappy astromech, LMK.
