Finally found the refugee Padme at local KM.  Sure it was roughly TRU prices, but its the first figure I've wanted to buy in about a month and a half, so I was willing to pony up the extra buck.

This evening I picked up the TVC Twin pod Cloud Car Pilot, at E.Wong in Lima, Perú
The figure costed 35 soles or 12.6 US $ in exchange.

This is part of a clearance sale, cause this esb wave marked 69.70 soles last Christmas.

Just found Wave 7 at TRU in NY.

Fordo looked so good, and Tantive IV trooper looked great carded, so much that I actually ponied up the $10.99 for just those 2.  First Star Wars I bought at TRU in 2011.

I deserve it.

This is good to know since I'll be moving there in a week.

Any more details on the Attack Shuttle? Does "It's here" mean that it is actually available now in for-real stores?  :D

How did he happen to score 7 of them? Did you pay cost?

Nice score!

I posted this buyer before his prices are very fair and his combined shipping is great, very cheap! He gets stuff in the same time or before BBTS which is before the box stores. Here is a link to the auction:

I made a mistake he apparently had 10. I picked up Sandtroopers for $3.95 each from this guy. They are back up to $5.95 but he has great sales and variety.

Picked up all of Wave 7 at TRU.  (pricey!!)

Anyway, they look nice but I don't know when I'll get to mess with them.  However, this is exactly what happened with Wave 6.  I got to TRU early, picked up one of each, and then they had nothing new on the shelf.  And I never saw them again.  I'm glad I got mine, but it really seems like a crap shoot to get these things.

TRU was 10.99 each when I was at a store yesterday... of course all mine had were 4-LOMs and CC Pilots.

Also I've seen the prices fluctuate, some weeks figures are 10.99, other weeks they're 9.99. Weird.
