Wound up with 2 Fleet Troopers courtesy of a local buddy, and a black Endor Rebel Trooper too. :)

Also got to see/touch/fondle Dr. Evazan and Kithaba thanks to Bill Cable's local find.  Doc E.'s little body hair paintjob is nothing if not funny.

Picked up the following this week from a variety of stores....

Imperial Navy Commander
Darth Malgus
Hoth Luke
Darth Vader (ANH)
Dr. Evazan
Aayla Secura
Kithaba
Nom Anor
Rebel Fleet Trooper (re-release)
Logray (new coloring re-release)
Gamorrean Guard (re-release)
ARC Trooper Commander (re-release)
Bespin Han (re-release)
Super Battle Droid (for $5 from FiveBelow)
Zam Wessel (for $5 from FiveBelow)
Senate Guard (for $5 from FiveBelow)
B-Wing ($15 clearance from K-Mart)

Not sure why, but with the exception of Bom Vindin (who is coming in the Tarkin wave case, so I skipped him), I've grabbed all of the 2012 re-release figures. I'm not sure I'm gonna hold on to them or keep them MOC...

The three AOTC figures were impulse buys - hadn't been in the local FiveBelow for a while and when I got there, I was shocked to see so many AOTC figures - they had almost the entire wave - I left Padme, Anakin, Mace Windu, Obi-Wan and Kit Fisto - I think Jango was the only one MIA from the wave).

Surprisingly found a Rebel Ground Transport at TRU for 30% off. That makes it about the price it should be.

Kroger of all places had the new Movie Heroes figures, except Qui-Gon and Maul. Padme's head sculpt is awful, I think.

Saw some GI JOE RETALIATION figures.

Marshalls and TJ Maxx suck lately, guess Five Below got the rest of the AoTC cases. They had Grumpy Smurf with a bridge and rowboat for $3 on clearance. Lousy looking bridge, though.

Same old wave one crap at walmart/TRU/Target. Target has cleared out space for new Batman and Spiderman stuff. Those stores star wars areas are fairly empty but they refuse to restock. They probably will when they put the new Batman/Spiderman stuff.

Kholes, tj max, marshalls and Ross have nothing right now.

I snagged an ARC Commander and Trench Han for $5 each at Tuesday Morning yesterday.  Too bad they don't have more figures...

Scored Kithaba and Evazan at an out-of-town WM. It's always been a goldmine for me, but it's just difficult and time-consuming to get there. Paid off again, though.  ;D Add that to the B-Wing I picked up today, it was a good day.

Of the 3 things you did to Dr. Evazan, really only 1 of them concerns me.
