Found the ROTJ figures to complete me opener set, and an extra Gam Guard and Rebel commando. Also Got a TIE bomber the other day.

JACK - by Droid Gunship do you mean the HMP? Where did you stumble across that? Or was it part of an online order?

Found a complete set of the ROTJ wave this morning - cards were all bent so I got them as my openers. Already opened them up during lunch at work - great wave.

I picked up another GG and Jedi Luke. I think I am done with this wave, I am loaded with them (x6 Lukes, x8 GG, 6 RC, x3 Wickets and x2 of everyone else. This has to be my favorite wave ever, this is the benchmark! It's a wave like this that will make me the themed wave.

Picked up Luke and R2 from the Vinty ROTJ wave.

Not opened them yet, and bummed no other figure was around as these were probably lower on my list than any figure in the wave, but that's life. :)

Scored ROTJ Luke at Target - for $7.99. I was expecting to pay the sale price, $6.99. ::) I wonder if it's still in effect.

On the set I picked up Thursday morning, I was able to get the $6.99 price, because the sale signs were still on the pegs. The woman in customer service didn't even bat an eye at giving me my $7 back on the seven figures from the ROTJ wave.

The set I picked up this morning rung up at the $7.99 price and because they didn't have the sale tags in that store, I didn't make an issue of it.

So now that I've gotten a MOC set, I'm down to just needing GGs and I'm good. I've decided not to army build the Rebel Commando beyond having two of him open. Great figure, just not something I need lots of.

Huge haul from my local WM, which unloaded 3 or 4 cases of the ROTJ wave today:

3x Gam. Guard
2x Luke
2x Wicket
1 each for the Rebel, Ackbar, R2, and Wooof.

I also picked up Shaak Ti, Quinlan Vos, and the Undead Geonosian which were there too. I'm really liking the Geonosian, which I wasn't going to buy until I saw it today. Skipped Embo, Cato, and Boba. The Mando was the only new CW figure gone, which I thought was bizarre.
