None of the Lost Line wave has showed up at any stores anywhere near here. Our stores collectively seemed to have decided to stop re-stocking SW toys.

I can't say I really care because this a horribly lackluster wave, IMO, but I know some other local collectors that are getting pretty angsty about this one.

I think the Sandtrooper's deco is pretty nice and one of the figures you might actually dig if you see it...  plus, it's a tad bulky, but the fold-out blaster is pretty awesome.  Seriously.

Agreed.  I wasn't at all thrilled about a Sandtrooper being part of this wave, but once I saw it, I knew Hasbro finally nailed it.  The weathering on this particular version is spot-on, IMO.

I found both 3-packs at my Target. Picked up the droid set and left snaggletooth. Target also had CW/Legends marked down to $7.99. No restock on the vintage/CW/Legends. They had eight sets of the Maul 3-pack.

Picked up a Wal-Mart DTF Destroyer Droid and Tusken Raider last night. I 'm pretty sure I only did so because I was a little drunk.  :-X

Couldn't find the MTT thread so I might as well put this here.  Went on a mega toy and comic run this afternoon, and came across the MTT in Toys 'R' Us.  The price on the shelf and the price it scanned at?  $208.99

This is what happens when people who shouldn't do drugs, do drugs.  Large scale vehicles get made with inaccurate play features, and then they get marked for double what they're worth.

In other news, TRU has BOGO all month long.  Up to about 15 shock troopers from this sale alone.  I saw almost nothing after TPM wave, except a couple figures I picked up and traded, then all of the sudden BOOM tons of cases of the sandtrooper/blue clone lieutenant/shocktrooper wave.

Hmmm, weird...  Yeah we'd seen a hike already as you probably read, but not that high.  Soon they'll be able to have a sale on it, and sell it for the same price every other store has it for.  Shrewd.

And by shrewd, of course I mean it's completely dickish and they're scumbags at TRU for using such ****** tactics.

How much will they gouge for the Endor AT-AT? Probably so much you can buy two old ones for the same price and customize them.

For $208 it should deploy the droids, the droids should stand up and unfold on their own, and it should fly itself off to Target to buy up the stack of battledroids on their pegs and resupply you.
