TRU.com is still showing these as $50 with B1G150% underneath...

Such a deal.

I saw nothing raelly good at the TRU $4.99 sale.  Granted I get there rarely since they're all an hour away but still, saw nothing when I was there.  Bummer.

I would like to see more GOOD sales like that.

So tempted today to get more AT-ST's but I controlled myself.  The extra 50% off really is a tempter at K-Mart.

Not really vintage, but...
I went into a local Goodwill this past Saturday morning and I hit the jackpot!  I am not actively collecting, but I still buy interesting toys for my son for when he gets a little older, particularly when there is a deal.

Anyway, there was this box that reams of paper come in, celophaned over the top and it contained what looked to be a pretty complete AT-TE.  I bought it and found that aside from the 7 missles, this toy was complete, and in perfect shape.  Also in the box was a complete AAT, a General Greivous figure, and five different clone wars TV clone trooper action figures.

How much was this haul?

A whopping $4!!!

THAT is a great haul.  I'd have loved that AT-TE to customize.

The only problem is those missiles would cost around $30-40 for repros to make it complete.  Perhaps I'll wait until Hasbro reissues and see if I can get parts through their CS department.

My ex-wife lost the main cannon and several missiles to my AT TE, I'm thinking I'll just have to buy another whole one if I want a complete one.

You should be able to make repro missiles fairly easily if you wanted to...  definitely not $40.  They're small, simple...  One fairly small mold and pop a few out.  That's all it is.

 I've got an incomplete AT-TE and a gunship.  I looked at ebay sellers' repro missile prices and said "i don't care that much".

Yup.  That is where I'm at.  This is a prett impressive toy, but man is that front half a total wast of space.  They could have done a lot more.

Never cared for the AT-TE at all, missiles or not.  On top of that, it's not a Vintage Collection item, is it?   :)

Picked up an INC at Walmart, of all places.  Prior to that, the only wave that seemed to hit Walmart was the Deleted Scene wave.

Yesterday over lunch I scored Darth Malgus, the INC, and TCW Captain Rex @ TRU for $5 each. Bazinga.

Randomly found an INC at Target yesterday, so I naturally picked it up.
