No joke, the ceramic frogs line made me literally LOL at my desk.

I came across some random SOTDS Clone Wars figures at Tuesday Morning over lunch. Real dogs though - all Obi-Wans and ARF Troopers. $6.99 each. Pass. I'd love to find a SOTDS Ventress though.

An ebay seller in China has lots of 100 clone blasters for $9.99 with free shipping. Mix of CW (i think) and older movie style, who knows what you'd get of each? 50-50?

I'm debating getting some, just because I pick up used figures sans accessories.

Picked up another Commander Fox from TRU today, for no particular reason. They're literally the only place here still stocking new Clone Wars figures. I guess I just missed buying something.

Grabbed a 2010 SOTDS Cody (CW03) off eBay after reading the JTA blurb about it being a unique paint job, and referencing this in Sansweet's book. Pretty sure I had passed this up back in the day as a simple repaint but it does appear to be just different enough, well you know.

Gotta dig those old figures out now and re-file this one, not looking forward to that.

Scored me a Retail Droid at a garage sale for a quarter (oddly the only SW figure they had).  8)  My second Retail Droid this season, also got another one for around a quarter (bought with a mix of other loose figures, including a vintage collection Bespin Luke). I guess most folks don't recognize it as a Star Wars item.

Yard sale/Thrift store finds:

Cade Bane, first release no accessories

Droid Fighter, missing missiles and half the wings. I had to search to even get 2 out of the 4 wing parts. This thrift's stores toy section has been a mess. I rarely go there, out of my way most of the time (they have a closer location that is actually more digusting). Paid like a $1 and some change for it.

For a fodder droid fighter in pieces, totally worth it.

Clone Wars Turbo Tank, missing one door, all missiles, the interior control stations, the side lasers and the speeder bike...$10.  I could tell it was missing the door, and looked for it. The garage sale people said it was lost. I didn't check inside the tank until I got home. The driver was there!  8)

It's gonna be hard to top that find.

I got the Tank at a garage sale for $1 a month ago but it is missing many of the detachable parts.

Would love that kind of find.  Have a great idea for customs of that vehicle but out garage sales eat it apparently.

One of the local Targets finally went to 50% clearance on Clone Wars figures, so I started things off by grabbing the last Chewbacca and Phase I Clone Troopers they had.

$4.98 a pop is not terribly cheap, but enough to entice me to pick up some of the better figures. If they get down to 2-3 bucks I will probably grab all I see for cheap fodder.

Nabbed a cheap Yularren for the table.  Love the table.

The local Walmart had Clone Wars figures marked down to $7 each. I was briefly tempted as they had a pretty good selection, even a Training SBD, but ultimately I passed at that price. If they get to $5 or less I may load up on a few Phase II clones for customizing fodder.
