I finally found something new at Target as well.  Luke Hoth and new Vader.  But other two Targets were dray as bones.

At least there is some vital signs out there, it's becoming more frequent.

JACK - vital signs out there? Doesn't sound like the Chicagoland I know. :(

Picked up a Walmart Exclusive DTF Dewback today for $9. Looks like the clearance is becoming more widespread.

Scored a light-up Vader at WM just now. Also saw the snow speeder Luke, but left it. Are these the only new figures in the wave?

I scored a $15 DTF Vulture Droid which gives me a walker and a flyer.

Wave 4 and 5 cases were picked up off my buddy locally too, so I'm technically caught up.

I've been giving brief thoughts on both on my Twitter account @Jesse_James77 too, as I've been opening both cases tonight.

I still haven't opened all my Wave 3 figures...  time to **** or get off the pot I guess.  Now that I have 2 Malgus, I'm down with opening one of him anyway.  DST will still pain me.  I want so many too.  Ugh.

I managed a deal for a Nikto and Odd Ball which I got yesterday. Very cool, can't wait to get an opener Nikto.

Just ordered Tarkin and Vintage Nikto from Amazon for $12.99 each as they were in stock and free shipping eligible over $25 so I threw in the book Runaway Mummy to tip the scales to get free shipping

gammorean guards are available at that price too for those intersted

I bit on that, but felt sick doing so. $25 for two guys and that's considered a good deal? I gotta get a new hobby...

LOL at my bad math. Didn't need to add the book for the free shipping. Oh well I wanted to get it for my daughter soon anyway.  And yeah, real sad that this feels like a good deal. But I really wanted that nitko

Thanks Smash. It looks like most of the last two waves were available and eligible for free shipping with Prime. I ordered 9 figures and signed up for the stupid credit card to take $50 off, and ending up paying $57.

Grabbed Tarkin and Nikto from Amazon, and threw in Aayla because I don't have her yet. I figure the extra $3 these cost each is for shipping, and now I don't have to go nuts trying to find them. Hopefully they arrive in the same nice condition my order from last week did.

Ready and available, you can pick up the Movie Heroes Light-Up Vader (which is awesome btw...  The only LU Saber fig I bought, but worth it for my desk), Clone Pilot Oddball and a good bit more right now at the Hobbystock.cn Ebay store!


Clicky  to go to the store!

There are other figures too, but I noticed the Nikto Guard is missing his hat, so if you  need one completely watch that.  But for a fodder figure, considering everything has been impossible to find one of much less extras, that's a decent deal and the more you buy the more shipping comes down.

Got my cases of the Wave 2 Class II vehicles and the Wave 2 Battle packs today from Entertainment Earth.

Unfortunately, even after I put in the handling notes of my order to please choose cases that didn't show signs of damage and to pack them well in the box, the Entertainmet Earth order packers, grabbed two cases that had been dented in transit to them AND then put both cases in a larger shipping box and only filled the voids in the box with paper, leaving the cases in direct contact with the outer shipping box.

UPDATE: So EE gave me a credit and considered what they sent me as non-mint product, and I applied that credit to getting another case of the Wave 2 vehicles. The customer service manager is also going to work with the warehouse team to ensure that the next case that I get starts and arrives in the best shape possible. While I wasn't planning on getting a set of the vehicles to open, this resolution is much better than having to find a Fedex facility to take the original box back to.
