Still no DS wave here...  :(  Seen remnants 2 times, and a full case once.  That's it since they first shipped.

I could use more A-Wingers and (Mc)Crackens at some point.  Figure it'll get here eventually in some bulk.  I really want to stock up on A-Wingers though and do some parts swapping as well.  I've got a stock pile of heads ready to roll for some swapping.  Started last night with an Endor Rebel I wanted to do that actually looked (at least some) more like the SS 12" Sergeant.

I've only seen the DS wave one time, at Walmart.  The store had each figure x2, and I was able to pick up one set.  But I traded away the Lando and Mon Cal, thinking that I would be able to find those guys again at retail.  No such luck here in the Dallas area.  Still looking....

S-C-O-R-E!

Picked up the following at K-Mart over lunch:

Kithaba - Brown Headband
Dr Evazan - Non-Pink Scar
Gamorrean Guard
Logray - New Variant
Barriss Offee - New Variant
Bespin Han - New variant

No sign of Aayla, Skeletor, or Wedge.  :(

This store has sucked so badly for so long I almost fell over when I saw new stuff on the pegs. The only reason I even stopped there was that report on JTA's front page. Even so, it was a freaking nightmare getting out of there...all the registers went down for literally about 20 minutes and I just knew if I bailed I would regret it so I stuck it out. Ugh.

Still, new stuff...mmm.

I picked up Wave 2 TVC figures at my K-Mart tonight...  Now there's a pile of TPM ****, and not much chance of another case.

There is one about five miles from my house. I never go there though. Too much like a thrift store.

Oh man, if you think K-Mart is bad, don't ever stop foot in a Rose's. That place makes K-Mart look like Shangrila.

I left the RFT on the pegs yesterday not realizing this was a variant too. I guess I will head back over lunch today and see if he's still there.

I found a second Cracken and A-Wing pilot... keeping Cracken for the RFT headswap, not yet sure if I want to keep the Mon Cal Pilot or trade it away.

Found Malgus, Navy Commander and Hoth Luke at a Meijer. Funny, I'd given up looking for new stuff. I was there looking to see if that Meijer out GI JOE Retaliation stuff early.

We don't have Meijer here scockery, so I'm curious how much they were?

$9.99.

Years ago, this same Meijer is one of two stores I saw that had the last retail comic book wave, too. If only I'd known how scarce they'd turn out to be.

As a chain, they aren't all equal. This one had PoC/30th GI JOE releases, the store closer to me has only had Rise of Cobra figures since...well...that movie came out. Years ago, the stores used to seem to only get one or two waves of some things.

scocery where are you located.  I have been frequenting the Meijers up around Mishawaka, IN but I have been coming out empty handed.

Somehow I scored wave 13 at Target yesterday. Feel very lucky.
