Toys R Us - sorry, that's where everyone else is finding them and the Evo 2-packs are TRU exclusives....

Man, I could honestly never spend $18 each for those TRU exclusive 2-repack sets, mainly because we could get 3 better figures in an Evolution set for $20.

Missed most of the Clone Wars restock at the only close TRU, only new figure that was left was Mando guard...no knees...bah. (Of course is they actually shipped more new figures instead of Cody and past peg warmer Dooku... ::)) Did get legends figures.

Legends:
Snowspeeder Luke Skywalker (his battle card has a low "luck" rating...which is actually appropriate)
2x Snowtrooper (my 4th of this release)
Battle Droid 2-pack (my second)

Bad news is that the one Wal-Mart caught onto their Legends being $4.50 and updated their system. Missed my chance for some clones, but realistically, one can often to better on ebay with some observation and luck.

Finally saw Boushh Leia. Not that I was wanting one per se.

Picked up a couple Legends Snowtroopers yesterday, as my Wally unloaded at least six and I found a few that didn't have pink helmet-itis.

Grabbed another Dak (last one at Target, and only one I've seen in a number of stops) and a Legends Snowtrooper this week...  Also got some older figures at a toy show set up in the one mall I go to.  2 EU Clone Troopers and a Wookiee Warrior (the latter one with the pleather tunic) for $18.  I was happy with that.

I picked up my first Wave 2 figure, the Magna Guard which is an amazing figure! It's a multiple must have figure!

Got the Snowspeeder for $20 and a another battle droid 2-pack at a Target where they were still $6.99, as opposed to $7.99 at other outlets.

Those battle droids continue to amaze me in their ability to fall over. Even with both feet on the new battle game stand footpegs, they still collpase.  :P

Picked up non-Foil Magnaguard, non-Foil Cody, Foil Darth Sidious and Foil Grievous today on my way home from work.

I picked them up even though I have both the Rev 2 and Rev 3 cases on pre-order from HTS. I'm thinking that if I can find a MOC Foil Anakin (Captain Piet already grabbed me a Foil Sandtrooper), I can cancel one of those two cases (I think it's the Rev 3 case).

I'm done with needing the wave regularly carded now though - so I'm just down to the five Foil variations I need and I can put the ROTS wave to bed...

Picked up a bunch of ROTS wave the last couple of days. I plan on keeping most of them carded, though it's been quite difficult to find a Cody that has a decent card worthy of my collection and not UGH-ed up.
