if anyone needs a Republic AV-7 Mobile Cannon or a Clone Wars Vehicle Super Vulture Droid - amazon.com has them both for sale.  $16.71 for the Cannon and $12.00 for the vulture droid.  both are FSSS eligible.

Snagged the Maul target set and Villians Snags set at Target for he sale price, and then stumbled onto the Training battle Droid, Wolfe, and Fox, at my local backwoods Walmart when I stopped to get some hairspray for my daughter. The prices were 9.99 a piece so I only picked up the Battle Droid and had to debate about Fox. If I picked him up I would gave felt like a scalper since I already bought one online. These should be hitting in force if this store (that has not restocked since February) has new stuff.

Well, you can always go back to the store and pick one up for a fellow collector, who can pay really quickly via paypal.  (Hint, hint).   ;)

Was lucky enough to score a lone CW18 Commander Fox this morning at my local WalMart.

So, while I would definitely like to find two more to open, if I never find this figure again, I will be okay with it since the carded Clone Wars collection for 2012 is now complete.

Ok, this doesn't really count, but I'll post it anyway: another local collector here found Commander Fox at TRU today and was able to score me two for my collection, plus the re-painted/slightly tweaked Rex I keep reading about over at RS. (For the record, I see NO difference between Wave 3 Rex and Wave 4 Rex but some people swear that Hasbro tweaked the helmet apps/weathering so I am going to have to inspect up close to confirm)

He mentioned they also got in the speeder bikes (FINALLY) but no other new Clone Wars stuff.

A happy and unexpected follow-up report...I found a complete set of TCW Wave 4 at a Walmart on my way home from work today! This place has been dead so long I wasn't even going to stop but man, I'm glad I did. When it rains, it pours I guess.

Thanks to Hasbro wisely doubling up on Fox in the new case assortment, I was able to snag one MOC and for openers, so I am officially done with carded Clone Wars figures for 2012.

And it's not even October yet.  :(

So...pretty momentous night last night. Thanks to a tip from another local collector, I was able to snag the elusive Republic Dropship Class I set from a local Target last night. Even better, it was a cherry mint package too, so this one is a definite keeper. I still wouldn't mind having an extra for openers, but I'm not going to kill myself looking for it.

This is pretty noteworthy for me because this was literally the last toy I was looking for in a brick and mortar store this year. The only other thing coming out Clone Wars-wise is the Wolf Pack gift set, and since that is online only there is really no reason for me to set foot in another TRU, Walmart, Target, or Kmart for the remainder of 2012. Yay!

That said, it is a hard habit to break, so I am sure I will keep up the occasional runs - we do have a new TRU opening next week - but the sense of urgency is definitely gone now. Big sigh of relief.

Must be nice...  I've just got 4 Maul speeders and 4 STAPS staring at me at any given Target and no room for new.

KM it's mostly the same though a little more room.

FYI, as posted in the other thread, what they have on the shelves currently may well be irrelevant, most stores seem to be stocking the newest wave regardless of what is already out there. At least at Target.

So if you have stores, like we do around here, that have been sitting on the same three stinkers for months now, it's still worth a stop to check. At least in theory.  :)

Courtesy of the TRU BOGO sale they're running - I picked up two more Commander Fox figures for $5 each which means I am now done with single-carded Clone Wars for the rest of the year.

Now I just need to receive my pre-order of the Wolf Pack gift set and somehow find AT LEAST two of the Dropship Class I vehicle.  :-\

what pack was this guy from?  http://www.ebay.com/itm/5x-Star-Wars-The-Clone-Wars-Clone-Trooper-loose-/390480565894?pt=US_Action_Figures&hash=item5aea749686

plus the seller has it listed wrong.  In the listing above he says you get "5x" but clearly he meant "1" because he has other auctions of the same figure for "5x" and has the correct picture and I am guessing the correct price.
