With Disney buying LFL, my luck has changed. I found four ewok sets and two pilot sets at TRU. They also had the entire lost wave cards. Vintage card versions of the blue clone, sandtrooper, shock trooper, vader and jar jar where there too. Target had vintage CW Anakin for $11.59 for some reason.

I just bought 4 loose Royal Guards shipped for $11.00 each from one of the Asian sellers, viperskingdom. Doesn't have the EU accessories, but I don't need them.

Busy couple of days...



The older figures came from a guy on anotheR Site, the TVC Guards and Troopers came from Amazon, Snaggletooth 3-pack from Target using their $5 off coupon, and the AT-ST Drivers are obviously from K-Mart ($14 for both sets after rewards points... woohoo!).

Over the last week I've gotten my two cases of the Final TVC Wave from EE, two more Royal Guards from Amazon, and a Darth Malgus from McMetal.

For the first time ever, I saw a case of 2012 wave 3 (the wave with Evazan, 501st Clone, Kithaba, etc) at retail, when one of the local Walmarts put out a case out of the blue.  This WM hadn't put out a case of vintage figures since 1 case of the ROTJ Deleted Scenes wave in February, so to say I was shocked was an understatement.  I wound up getting another Kithaba (to put on my Skiff display) and grabbed Dr. Evazan for a friend who collects the Cantina aliens.  If it wasn't for vintage being EOL, I would hold out hope of finally being able to get Starkiller and Shae Vizsla without selling a kidney.

Also got my case of the final vintage wave from BBTS late last week.  What a great wave of figures overall (the 8 new ones, at least).  The Republic Trooper from TOR might be my favorite figure of the year, and I was surprised at how much I wound up liking the CW Obi-Wan.  Could have done without the 4 TPM figures since I already had them, but it's better than getting yet another Qui-Gon I don't need.

I got an Ani and Death Star Trooper this afternoon at a local Target.  First I've seen this wave at a store that I was sure weren't repacks in the Kithaba/Evazan wave.  Yay dst.

That's great to hear about the Evazan wave still shipping. I'vbe been holding out hope for awhiole now. I will not be happy until I am able to buy the following figures off the pegs in a brick and mortar store:

Aayla Secura
Nom Anor
Starkiller
Shae Vizsla

I don't care if it's Target, Walmart, or 5 Below. I want them on nice cards, in my hands, and no need for worrying about shipping. If it doesn't happen, screw it.

Scored an Imperial Navy Commander yesterday morning at Target.  Really surprised to find anything other than TPM figures at Target.  Malgus & Vader were gone, but the rest of the wave was there.

At Target, I found the same damn 4 TPM wave figures they've had left for months now. 

I saw a GI JOE RETALIATION Hiss tank and thought "maybe they marked it down" and it scanned as $31 :P . Then I left.

My nearest Target put out a case of 2012 Wave 3 and while I'd have missed it, my gf grabbed the Death Star Trooper, and promptly stashed it for an X-Mas gift.

Whoops, I mean I saw nothing and have no clue about any of that.

Found a 501st at Wal-Mart today... it didn't even scan at the register, which was weird, and the guy had to manually enter it in. Pretty sad that stores don't even recognize figures!
