Just ordered the last two 501st Vintage troopers from HTS. Tried for three, but was denied. When I went back to the main page, they were out of stock. Whew! I can wrap up wave 4 now.

Finally, again, a few figures were offered to me by the gods of Target.  I found the "Real" Clone Wars style Ani, and the two Jedi with light up sabers.  Finally.  These thing shipped in January.  Unreal, Hasbro.

Picked up deleted scenes Luke, Cracken, Mon Calamari pilot and hoth luke off Amazon. They should be here next week.  Amazon is the best place to buy figures right now since they have free shipping and no tax.

Picked up the KMart AtSt today. They seemed to have a good supply.

Took the plunge and ordered 2 Royal Guards from Amazon. My first ever Amazon order for Star Wars figs.

Picked up the special action set from Target today (villain set). I didn't know snaggletooth was such a big deal. Hopefully these will hit the clearance section later on in the year, so I can pick up another one.

I really dig the Boba Fett figure in that pack, as well as Bespin Luke.  I've contemplated picking up that set, but so far, I've held off.

I absolutely love the new Snags fig.  And again, I really dig the Boba Fett fig because of the newer "better" paint job.  And seriously, can you ever have too many Tuskens?  Solid 3-pack IMO.

There's some sellers on ebay that have that Luke cheap if you decide you want one but not the Fett - I've seen one for $3.99 recently, and I think shipping might even be free.

I was going to get the Luke, boba battle pack, but those figures have no articulation whatsoever. I was disappointed yet again. Just like I was with the MH battle pack with solo, chewie and 3PO. No disrespect, but I think they're a huge waste of money

I hear ya.  That's why I've held off on that set for the time being.  However, if I see that set go on clearance, I might reconsider.  Or, as Chewie mentioned, I see Luke or Fett for cheap on eBay, I'll bite.

Scored the K-Mart exclusive AT-ST the other day.  And I managed to get some pre-orders in for a couple of extra Royal Guards and a SW-TOR Republic Trooper.

Picked up darth malgus, vader and starkiller at TRU. Seems I have to fight this one guy for first pick of new figures. Looks like he shows up at opening of the store every time I decide to look for a new purchase. Anyway, I got what I was looking for; just waiting for the ewok and pilot set to arrive.

I really like that Luke, and in a way, it's the best Bespin Luke we've got.  Or at least I thought so when I rambled on and on about him and his cronies.  He pops up on eBay for $2-$3 every now and then, and he's easily worth that.
