Three days ago I grabbed Han and Logray at my Super Target - that was all they had left from the wave
Two days ago I grabbed Bom at my Super Target - that was all they had left from the wave
Yesterday I grabbed a RFT at my Super Target - that was all they had left from the wave

I think I need to go back today because someone is messing with me - I hope they put out a Fordo   ;D

I already have Bariss so he is all I need.

Picked up the B-Wing. Very cool packaging, sleek box.

Picked up the TRU Y-Wing this morning - used the 20% off one item coupon I received yesterday from TRU.

Not a bad price for this new iteration - $32.

Got the Y-wing this morning with a 20% of coupon from my email.

Sadly no Fordo yet - whoever it is at Target may be done with their tricks for me.

Picked up another Bespin Han and RFT at Target, can't seem to get enough of either of these figures, very well done.  I think, at least until the exclusive Taun Taun/Landspeeder/etc. start showing up, I'm pretty well caught up for now as well.  I'd probably continue to pick up any RFT I see, and maybe a couple other extras here or there.  I was actually going to grab another of the VOTC Chewies from the Legends line for a display, but our Target had raised the price on Legends to $9.89 so I passed.

Not really a Vintage purchase, more of a Shadows of the Dark Side purchase...

Scored one of the TRU Exclusive Rebel Technician w/Sled deluxe sets this morning.

Does anyone know the case ratio break-down for these? There were three Geonosians on the peg and one Rebel Tech. Since I wasn't there exactly at opening, someone may have gotten to them before me, and favored the Rebel Tech over the Geonosian, I don't know.

3x Geonosian, 1x Rebel Sled is the case pack ratio I have seen reported around the 'net and was what I found when I saw them at my local TRU last week.

I most likely won't die if I don't get a sled, but really Hasbro? Come on.

I picked one up the other day, only one they had. 1 per case was ridiculous, until I started playin with it. It's a neat item, but I don't know any kid in their right mind that would be interested in one, so I kind kind of see the logic.

You may be right, but my gut (and I admit my gut is very "collector" biased) says more collectors will want to army build the sled than kids will want the bug and speeder.
