Spotted more Lost Line figs at TRU this morning. The LL variants were gone, as was the extra Vader (seriously, VADER is the first one gone?), but the Vintage versions of everyone else remained. Snagged the Sandtrooper and left the rest. Once I stop blowing my money on college football tickets I'll order a case.

I bought the Ewok multipack over lunch today, the TRU across the river got a case in this morning, but $40 was a hard pill to swallow. Buyer's remorse has already started to set in, so I am not sure about keeping this one.

Found the lost line at my local TRU today. Picked up 3 Leia's and 3 vader's. 2 on vintage card and one on lost line. What was even sweeter was the BOGO 50% off deal. Also picked up a non SW item. Kraven the hunter. Good Friday has come twice in one year.

I got my TRU Ewoks and Pilots sets in the mail yesterday.  I like the sets, but the $85 hurts...

People complain about the prices, but it comes out to $8.50 a figure, which is better than what we've (or at least I've) been paying for figures lately.

Picked up a vintage Shock Trooper, Clone Lieutenant, and 2 Sandtroopers at TRU today. The sale on them really helped this purchase. Kind of nice to get them for $7.50 each.  :)

I think the argument could be made that the Pilots are a tad half-assed though...  At least 2 are anyway.  The Ewoks, sorta the same, but they just seem easier to do that and still get them decent. :)

I still can't find any "new" TVC (or CW) figures, but I've managed to track down nearly every other new item (and extras) that I need over the past week: K-mart AT-ST, Maul Returns BP, TRU Speeder Bikes & add'l Ewok & Pilot sets, and the MTT at WM.  Nice to find some new stuff out there, but with the exception of the Ewok & AT-ST Driver 2-pks coming to K-mart soon, there's not much else on the horizon.  It looks like I'll probably be heading back into another 6 month dry spell now.
Softgoods suck.  Almost as much as the Prequels.

I'm actually a little excited about having some time to beef up on At-St pilots, rebel pilots, speeder bikes, etc...I'd rather get doubles and triples of some of those things than the rerererererereleases I'm seeing in the upcoming BAD waves.

I know, the stuff I'm excited about is also resculpted stuff, but I'm just not very excited for AOTC onslaught.

Bought 2 Yavin Hangar sleds w/Techs in the past 2 days...  Kinda cool.  Marshalls is still getting these in and they're a great set.  I'm gonna custom up one of the myriad of sleds I have I think.  Got a bitchin' idea for one tonight while I was out.

Are those out in good numbers or just scattered? I never saw one in the wild, and Marshalls online doesn't seem to have toys.

Last week I grabbed a B-Wing from K-Mart for $8 (!!) and then found a B-Wing pilot on the pegs at the WalMart near me (not sure where this came from) and grabbed it for $4, both items to go into my son's tobybox for the future.  A full B-Wing setup for $12?  Sweet!

Scored a pair of Biker Scouts with Speeder bikes at TRU this evening.  And I was very pleased to see that they honored the BOGO offer.  Two speeder bikes for $35 and change was far better than the $21.99 each they would normally cost.
