Wow, I actually found remnants of Wave 3 at Walmart tonight! I was so happy to finally see Aayla Secura on the pegs that I didn't even stress over the fact that Nom Anor eluded me once again.

A nice consolation was the fact that this was apparently the revision wave with Wedge, and he was still there. It was literally the first time I had ever seen this figure on a peg so I snagged that as well.

And this was at a Walmart that has sucked FOREVER seemingly. I'm willing to check anyplace now after seeing that.

I also stopped by Target and saw most of the Malgus wave, with the exception of Malgus himself.

Still hoping to see Nom out there, and the Tarkin wave as well. Maybe for BF...

Found wave 3 or whatever at a Wal-Mart...got Kithaba...passed on the rest for now hard to pay $10 for a figure when there's 8 packs for $20. They had Nom, too.

I got...

-CW Realistic Ani on sale, which I'll likely unload someone I don't want and keep Ani since he's cool.

-3 Rep. Dropships from Target.  One for my buddy, 2 for me.

-TVC Final Wave Obi-Wan and Ahsoka...  Ahsoka has her proper feet so my other will go to my fodder bin, and Obi-Wan will be a dedicated pilot in his CW Fighter I do believe.  Just gotta get him another headset.

Not a bad haul this week.  I've still barely spent on toys too.  I'm happy about that.

Other than a Red Bandana Kithaba I'd like, I'm pretty much good...  Unless, by some miracle, i walk into a wall of Death Star Troopers and Rebel Fleet Troopers for a fair price. :)

Got my cases of wave 5 and 7 from BBTS this week. Finished for the year, except for Sandstorm Leia and the 501st Trooper.

Got Dr. E and Nom at a Wal-Mart. Sucks to have pay $10 each when there's so much cheap stuff and sales around. But better safe than sorry.

Evazan's likeness is still a tad lacking, but better than the 90's one. Could've tossed a bar glass in with him.


Target here still shows no signs of having got any vintage cases since spring. TRU is barren.

Went to TRU this weekend early in the morning looking for new Skylander figures for my kids, no luck.  I did, however, find the Evazan wave.  Picked up a red bandana Kithaba & Nom Anor.  The best part was that they had the buy one get one 50% off deal.  I think it's the first time in like 6 months that TRU had anything "new."

nice score man!  I saw this case at TRU too.  i was hoping to find a red Kithana but they only had the brown one.  Not something I won't be able to live without getting since I already have the brown one, but I might pick one up if I ever saw it.

I guess this wave is making its way through...finally.  I'm just surprised to find anything in terms of vintage figures beyond TPM at TRU.  I've seen this wave pop up at Walmart recently, too.  Brown bandana every time.

Not really a Vinty item but I got the Yavin Sled, again, at a Marshall's store this past weekend and I see Yakface reported they're hitting TJ Maxx stores too.  Love it for $10.  Great price on that set.  $15's not bad either.  Was just a tad too high at TRU.

SO there wasn't a TON of TVC for me to buy at the local Toy Show but I came out with some modern stuff...

2 2-1B figures from POTF2.
2 ASP-7 figures
1 POTF2 Kyle Katarn mostly as filler and parts
1 of the bronze pipe looking droid from the Disney line
2 red versions of the original Pit Droid bonus figures and their boxes which have unique decoes on them.

and before I ran in the show I bought a Clone Lt. and Hoth Luke at TRU for their 2 for deal.

Also, my buddy Jim nabbed me a red Bandana Kithaba + Sandtrooper on the same deal.

Got a Galactic Heroes Bossk for my meager Bossk's Bungalow™.

And last but not least, my score of the day was a Vintage 3-Pack of Hoth Rebel trooper, Leia, and 2-1B.  $7!  I didn't even argue with the guy.

So ALL Star Wars toys are B1G1 Free at K-Mart, and they're still getting AT-ST 2-packs in for those unaware.  I got 3 more driver sets tonight and 1 was free, plus I'd had a $5 giftcard burning a hole in my wallet I got for buying all my pet food there last week, and so I got an additional $5 off.

$25 for 6 outstanding soldiers = good deal these days.

Same here. I scored 3 of the AT-ST Crew packs for $30 and change a few minutes ago.
