I finally found the cancelled DVD sets at Marshalls.  I picked up a set for me and another set for my friend in Utah.

I feel like it has been forever since I bought a clone wars item, but I found the legacy of terror and brain invader DVD packs at TJ Maxx. 9.99 (two figures and a dvd) makes a great birthday gift for a children's party. I may pick up a couple more if I am back over that way for gifts.

Around $7 with tax and the trial free shipping.

I was able to get the Scuba Clone mini-rig this morning at Walmart.  They also had the Anakin mini-rig, but I passed on that one for now.

Wow, I did not realize until this post that you are in fact RegJr over at RS. We are getting a lot of the same crew posting now in both forums, that's cool.

Great score!

Ah, busted!!!     ;)

I was thrilled to find that set this morning.  I can't wait to tear into it tonight.

Good news on that.  Something new to keep an eye out for anyway. :)

Doing things on the fly here isn't easy. ;)

No worries. I was just giving you a hard time. I was excited to see my store report hit the front page, for sure!

Anyway, I opened the Scuba Clone Trooper tonight; and this has got to be one of the coolest figures in the line. He's loaded with articulation, and he just looks badass. He may be one of my favorite figures in the line.  Here's a picture for the main page, Jesse:

See I thought someone somewhere said he was underarticulated? 

Glad to see that's not true at all. :)

I hope to get 2 or 3 of these at some point.

I agree.  In a time when we are seeing less and less articulation, this figure is a breath of fresh air.  He has articulation at the ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, wrists and neck.  I can't remember if he is also articulated at the waist.  He truly is a gem in the 2012 line-up.

Sweet carbonated Jesus, perseverance finally pays off!

I rolled by TRU over lunch today even though I knew they were not due for a truck. I recall seeing a post from somebody else recently, not here I think, that found a case of Deluxe sets with the Scout Bomber at TRU a few weeks back. And I remember the same thing happened with the last toy I had never seen at any retail outlet - those cruddy Red/White BP's that showed up months after I had been forced to order them online via HTS. TRU got a buttload of them way after the fact.

So anyway, I walked in and sure enough, there was a whole fresh case of SOTDS Deluxe sets, including a minty Y-Wing Scout Bomber that I immediately snatched up for $18.99. Crazy.

Definitely might be worth your mileage to sniff around for some of these showing back up at TRU...really glad I held out and never resorted to getting gouged on this thing via the secondary market.

Also happy because this keeps my streak alive of having seen every Clone Wars toy on the shelves at least once.
