I got a call this morning from a fellow local collector who scored all of Wave 12 on a happenstance stop at TRU this AM, so I hightailed it over to my local store and sure enough, they had gotten a truck overnight too. (!)
I check every Thursday religiously because that's their schedule, but with the holidays they seem to start getting these "rogue trucks" that show up with only a few hours notice.
Anyway, I immediately spied Colt on the pegs which I knew was a good sign since he is the carry-forward with this wave, so I grabbed that and then saw Jar-Jar and snagged him as well. Chewbacca and Evan Piell were right up front but I had to dig around about for armored Savage and the astromech. At first I thought I had missed them but luckily there was one of each left. Holla!
They must have gotten 2 cases because I saw doubles of Shirtless Savage and Jar-Jar, but luckily I was able to score all 4 of the new guys plus extras of Jar-Jar and Colt just for kicks.
Best part of all was the $7.99 price tag, which beats the heck out of HTS, eBay, etc. SO glad I held out for these. Something about buying the figure off the actual peg just makes it feel more legit to me.
My buddy is actually giving me dibs on his set as well since he is not as much of a Clone Wars enthusiast, so I actually have 2 full sets of this wave, meaning I am technically done.
But armored Savage is like the Aqua Droid, so fiendishly awesome that it will be almost impossible to resist buying every one I see.
Really, really happy to have finally found these after all the fruitless searching. I feel like I can now kick back to just the occasional store runs and wait for that Mando Attack Shuttle and the Walmart exclusives to arrive, and the inevitable Republic Attack Shuttle deep discount.
