Got arc welder Solo today for 4 bux and change with this Kmart coupon: http://www.printablecouponfeed.com/kmart/25734 . Unfortunately I just heard about it today. :-\

Prior purchases from this line have been Dengar (awesome!), Threepio, Cody and Jabba (!!! :D).

Outside of this line I also recently bought Resurgence and the Ultimate Sarlacc (thanks Ray!).

At TRU today I picked up:

Non Foil Cody
Small Eyed Battle Droid
CW Nikto Guard

There is a sale on Legnds and CWs, 2 for $11.99. The Nikto is marked at $10.99 but the kind cashier gave me the sale price. Also of note Target and TRU had plenty of both Waves of Legacy. They were stocked full!

Jodo Kast with the $5 coupon at K-Mart (last one they had), also found a Legacy collection Imperial Scanning Trooper for $3.20. So I got both figures for $7.62.

Oh sorry. I took it for granted that people knew there was $10 off of a $10 purchase coupon going out in the mail. They go out quite often. Hell of a deal! 8)

Snagged Cape w/ Grievous accessory, Sith Eyes Anakin and Palpidious tonight.

Weirdest thing was that a few days ago they had foil versions of everybody except Anakin (a Magnaguard was in his place). Went back to pick everything up tonight and everything was non-foil, the Magnaguard was gone, and Anakin was in its place. The foil versions don't make a difference to me, but I really wanted the Magnaguard.

well I went to Target and I saw the display of all the SW exclusives and I blew my wallet load...  Grabbed the Commado 2 pack, 4 of the genosis sets, the bounty hunter 4 pack, and the defense on Hoth pack.   :o

seriously, I like all of the exclusives, but that was a lot for me to spend on toys.  I wish they were more spread out evenly throughout the year, but I made my choice.

Agreed wholeheartedly.  I miss the 2-packs in Spring instead of this Fall deal when they ship.  :( 

The big battlepacks are cool now I guess, good kick-off items to Christmas, and a Clone Wars exclusive is cool, but this was a ton of stuff, all at once, which makes you start to question how you collect.  Spread out, I'd probably buy 2 or 3 of the Hoth Rebel set if I saw them...  All together, I question a decision like that.  Especially for me because this time of year is expensive for me in other areas, between my love of Halloween, hockey, football...  And I'm always winterizing cars at this time of year.

That's a lot of **** draining my wallet, and then on top of it a deluge of SW exclusives, haha.  I'm just glad there isn't a basic figure wave to track down right now too.

thats the thing though too - who knows when the ROTJ will pop up, and then if AOTC happens before the end of the year, iirc wave 5 could potentially be following its heels.

Today was a day unlike any of my other collecting days.  I collect SW figures - mainly realistic formats and with a hint of CW figures that I am intersted in, GI Joe, and Marvel Universe.  I have never had a day I walked into a retail outlet and spent this much money, around $140, without there being a BMF style vehicle in the cart.  I totally skipped the Mighty Muggs 3 packs, I thought they were cool, but I spent enough $$$.

So what is there between now and the end of the year?  Maybe the 3 waves I listed above if I am right, a sprinkling of CW figures, and the EE comic sets - plus the stuff I collect from the other lines.  Am I missing other SW items or exclusives?
