Did it scan?

I found a Renegades Cobra Commander last week that didn't scan (not found). I wasn't going to pay the $5+ that was the last mark down sticker price, since I got a Duke for $3.24 a week or so earlier.

THE BP scanned OK, yeah. I will have to go back to check on the Class I sets at Walmart, that store is a little off the beaten path for me.

I have seen that Skrull Soldier six times now at retail; and each time I got there, Hawkeye and Black Widow were already gone.  Kinda wish I could find those two.

I bought a Hawkeye and Black Widow at TRU today at lunch actually. Only the 2nd time I have ever seen them on the pegs anywhere.

Where'd you find that Dropship though? Was that from an online order or actual retail find?

That is my favorite of all the mini-rigs this year, if only for the BFG.

As much as it makes my blood boil to both overpay and buy stuff I already have, I ordered wave 3 from EE today. After looking at the ridiculous prices on eBay I decided I would rather give money to a business that exists for collectors instead of hacks out sucking what few of these are out in retail into a cash grab. My hopes of ever finding these in a store ebbed when the calendar switched to July. It is crazy to me that an avid collector can go five months without seeing a new carded figure in a store.

Ordered the MTT from Target.com today. Can't beat getting it shipped to my door for $127.05.

Went to a comic convention in town today and the guy with the cool SW booth was back again. I noticed he had a Ponds and original Fox carded for sale and out of curiosity I asked how much. I believe he was asking $60 for Ponds and $80 for Fox...unbelievable. He also had a Revan and Malek or whatever but I didn't even want to ask how much those would have been.

I sure hope you can beat it, or I won't be getting one of these.  Nice exclusive, but I'm hoping to find it for $100 or less ...someday.

My wave 3 and Commander Fox came in today. I am tempted to hang pegs on the wall so I can walk by them for a while and see what it is like to have new clone wars on the pegs.

I also figured a reasonable thing to do with the extras is construct a Snow Mace. With a little sanding the mace head fits reasonably on the snow koon body. The brown neck stem is a little off color but at quick glance it is a passible figure. I figure that is better that them just sitting in a box, and since Plo was not really from the show (comic pack reject I believe) it works for me. And who doesn't have an extra Mace head (or five) sitting around?

It still breaks my heart to mail order for these, but at least I can look for deluxe to show up at Ross in a year or two.

A Republic mini-sub was bought by me recently, giving me two which is where I wanted to be...  I want to do a custom "late war" Clone using the animated figure and the Tartakovsky figure...  I wanted then to have a sub for the early war Tartakovsky figures to ride on because it just seemed appropriate.

I also nabbed 2 Pirate Speederbikes at $6.50 each at K-Mart in their extra 50% off clearance dealie right now.  A great price.  Still have B-Wings here in bulk.

Cleaned out my "home" Target tonight of all CW figures, roughly $94 worth of peg-warming drek. (Actually, just the carry forward remnants of Wave 2) I am hoping this somehow results in Wave 3 magically appearing sometime this week, although it's been so long since I've seen a store report on those, they may have stopped shipping already.

Will be doing the same thing with my "work" Target tomorrow as well, so we'll see what happens. I guess there is no rush seeing as how I've got six more months to track down a whopping four figures, but I'd just as soon get on with it, I guess.

So, the work Target refreshed today...with another case of Wave 2. Oh well, was worth a shot. I will try again in a couple of weeks I guess. There is always the chance the one near my house will hook something better up, I guess.

My "home" Target re-stocked with another case of TCW Wave 1...ugh. That's 12 figures that aren't going anywhere.

My "work" Target sold through most of the Wave 2 they put out, so I bought the rest up along with their remaining TVC figures. Fingers crossed, they come through with something good.

Got a Corporate Alliance Droid Tank off Ebay, with two Battlefront battle droids, for $11 including shipping. Decent toy (not toon accurate, of course, but released under CW), didn't realize the side guns don't rotate...kinda weak in that aspect. They should've put foot pegs on the side treads. The working tread in neat. I like the crew compartments. It really should be bigger, but that would've been unlikely. I still think the eyes are goofy, but anyway I wanted one in case I every make a  Battle of Kashyyyk display.
