Grabbed the SDCC Star Wars: Revenge of the Jedi Boba Fett figure off ebay.  Then I turned around and won the entire SDCC Revenge of the Jedi set.

Found Bom at TRU this morning, completing Wave 7 for me. Hurt to pay $9.99 but now I can lay off the retail search for a while (hopefully)

Picked up Vintage Bastila Shan, Farlander, Ponda Baba, and Echo Base Trooper plus the Revenge Ackbar, Luke and Vader at my local Target in MN today.

Found a fresh case of wave 4 at an out-of-town WM, so I picked up Zam and Padme to trade.

Was it a store old stuff was cleared out of II?

If so, this is becoming a little disconcerting...  Stores clear out of the **** figures, but get cases that have the **** figures as carry-over and are now getting littered with them again.  It's happened at a Target so far, and possibly your Wally...  Ugh.

This store is in a pretty small town (small enough I can't believe they even have a WM) so they never got inundated with a lot on anything. It's kind of been my private gold mine for fourteen years, and this year is no different since the last two times I've been there, there's a new case of wave 4. And there's no Sandtroopers and only one ROTS Clone on the pegs.

I have one of those, but even it's inundated with crap.  Or at least it was last time I was there.

Actually found a Vader and Luke Revenge card at TRU. Missed the new stuff by a day.

Had a couple $5 TRU coupons ($5 off $25 Store Grand Opening coupon and $5 TRU Rewards coupon) so I hit TRU over lunch to capitalize on the 2-for-$12.99 sale.

End result = $31 for 6x Vintage figures and a FREE Commander Blackout to boot. 

Cheap army builders (AT-RT Driver x2, AotC Trooper x2) and some custom fodder (Weequay Skiff Driver, Fi-Ek Sirch).  Wish they were that cheap all the time... :P

My wife took me shopping to TRU on Saturday for my birthday and I lucked out with the Death Star Trench Run set and the new Darth Vader Transformer.  The box for the Trench Run set is insane!  I had to take a pic of it to show the scale:

Merry belated Jesse!  I haven't seen the DSTR in stores yet, but it looks like you could probably fit a midget in there easily - if you wanted to do that for some reason.
