Got a sandtrooper at Wal-Mart for $6. And another Snowtrooper for $6 (less actually, since I returned some cans/bottles).

Got Legends AOTC CLone and ROTS white Clone at K-Mart's buy one get one free sale. $4.25 a figure...nice. I couldn't find much else, clone wars repacks and vintage leftovers, ...wave ones I had or didn't want. Not sure what I'd do with another At-At Commander, but I thought about it.

I think it's funny the difference between the two clones' basic card stats are that the ROTS trooper has one more point of "luck".

Speaking of that I found the Iron Man Air Assualt and Weapon Drones at K-mart buy one get one. $3.50 each.

ROTJ Wave has hit Walmart here, saw most at 2 different stores today. Went ahead and picked up a Wicket since this is technically a Droids derivative figure, and I collect all things Droids-related. He'll look good next to Boba and BL-17.

Still not much here.  Target stores were largely cleared out if they had gotten them in, and WM shows no signs at all.  K-Mart is where I've seen most of the wave...  The figures I am seeing are:

-Ackbar
-Luke
-R2

No Gams, no Rebels, no Woofs, no Wickets...  I saw 2 or 3 of the above 3 figures though, when I did see them.

Hit my local WM right before closing and then went to a 24-hour WM and I was able to score a few things...

2x WalMart Exclusive TIE Bomber (one to open, one to keep MIB)
2x Gamorrean Guard (brining my open count up to four)
1x Rebel Commando (bringing my open count up to four)
1x Drink Serving R2
1x Jedi Luke
1x Anakin on "Darth Vader" cardback variant

So now I'm "done" with the ROTJ Vintage wave and the WalMart exclusives for fall 2010 - yeah!!!

Hit up a Wal-Mart on the way home for Thanksgiving and ended up snagging Bar2, Wicket and a second Rebel Commando. The hunt remains for Luke and a few more G. Guards.

ROTJ wave 3 hit pretty good in Walmarts NY today.  I'm up to 6 Gamorrean Guards now.  A dozen should do it for me.  Definitely one of the Top 5 figures ever made.  I'd be hard pressed to rank anyone above him.

Man, must be nice...  If you want Luke or R2, that's all you can get here...  Oh, and Ackbar's lingering a little more too.

Picked up Bar2-D2 at Target tonight. I havn't seen really any of the ROTJ wave except Woof once at Walmart. I want Ackbar!

I picked up some CW figures out of boredom:
Shaak Ti (She looks better than the real one)
Embo (My second one, he is sweet)
Boba Fett.

I also picked up another Jabba WM set to stash away.

I picked up an extra Gammy, Luke, and Wooof at Target this weekend, for $6 each.  That Gamorrean is one of those figures I'm going to have a tough time not picking up each time I see one, so nicely done.

I agree. The Gammorean Guard is close to Sideshow quality in 3.75" scale.

Eventhough he could use a little 'manscaping' this is a very good figure.

Posted this in the wrong thread, but I picked up Hoth Leia yesterday. The $6 Target sale might finally get me to pick up the rest of the ESB wave.

Picked up a pair of fixed helmet Clone Troopers from the ROTS wave at Target for $6 each.

Also picked up an opener of Plo Koon's JSF.

Picked up Bar2-D2 at Target tonight. I havn't seen really any of the ROTJ wave except Woof once at Walmart. I want Ackbar!

They're not terribly common in my area yet either.  I'm seeing about half the assortment semi-frequently, and the rest not at all much.

This weekend I picked up:

-2 AT-AT Commanders
-1 Magna Guard (love that guy)
-1 Embo
-1 Orto Plutonia pack
-4 ASP-7 Droids (why not toss these guys into my finds, ya know?)

And that's it basically. 

The $6 price will coax me into buying a lot of army builders.
