I'm still hoping they can come thru with a Naboo Starfighter.   :P

Did for me. :)  At Tuesday Morning anyway...   :-\  Took a lot of work on my part to actually GET it, but I did manage one.  It's, to me, the real travesty of 2012...  That and retailers bailing on ordering anything.  It's worth owning, which is rare of Star Wars vehicles now for a lil bit.

5 Below is entering the Texas market and the first one here is 5 minutes from my place, and opens in August so I'm hoping for something good!

I'm hoping they load up for the holidays...  There HAS to be unpurchased TVC crap laying in some RotLA-esque warehouse.

Hobbystock has more Darth Malgus figures up for $9.99, and the red bandana Kithaba is still there.

Get 'em while you can...  He's been posting good stuff all Summer really plus some decent sales.

Thanks Jesse. Now if he could just get Shae Vizla and Bastila Shan I'd be set.

Don't know how it got there, but I scored a TVC Death Star Commander today at one of my local stores.  And strange enough, it was the only TVC figure in the store.

Darth Malgus arrived yesterday. That was about the fastest shipping from China I've ever had.

Got  teeny little Mawhonic, techinically a Discover the Force release. I'd passed him up for months, because I'd passed on his vintage carded release even cheaper during an Amazon sale late last year. But with this version I get the flag. The flag is a bit chintzy, mine's not applied/taped even with the pole.

Proper scaling aside, he'd be awesome figure if he were Ree-Yees scale. You could get a team  of Gran mercenaries. Instead, he's just small and strange.

Scored a Nein Nunb and Lumat today.  In a shop.  For MSRP.

Weird.

Five Below finally put out a Malgus wave case and I missed all the good figures, unless you consider Hoth Luke good (why is his collar a seperate peice?). Actually, for $5 he's not a bad army builder. Also got Padawan Anakin, just to throw away 5 bucks on a figure I won't open for some reason.

Wasted trip to K-Mart, shelf tags but no Scanning or catapult sets in stock.
