Nice score Jesse!  That KMart Rewards program pays off if you shop there enough.  I've bought toys 3-4 times, but I think I've only racked up a few bucks thus far.   :P

I picked up all of Wave 9 tonight at K-Mart. :)  Yay me.

And with all the Reward Points I had saved up, I got $17 off the purchase.  I nabbed Vader (mostly for the card), RFT, 3 new figures, Jango, B-Winger...  It was about $54 or so I think after my discount, and I'm already started on my next.

Woah, nice find JJ!  Finding the whole wave at once must've put a smile on your face.

Yes, but when KM's running sales on stuff you just pop in and stock up, and it adds up fast.  I did an oil change with their stuff that was on sale...  stuff like that adds up.

It sure did give me a smile too Jess.  It's been a while since I bought a new figure, and I'm just happy to not have to feel compelled to look now.  I've been steadily hitting my Target near work just to find these, now I'm not so pressured to do so.

Nice score - there's two Kmarts in my relative area, if I have time I'll try and hit one this week.

Yeah, worth checking out CHEWIE, though my 3 new figures (not the repacks or Revenge carded guys) didn't ring up at all.  Weren't in the store's system yet.  No biggie, but took a little longer at checkout.

I don't think it's shipping to retail in the US yet.

Cool. I thought the whole wave was out. But I believe your correct, cause I haven't seen Han in the new trench coat, mouse droid and salacious crumb either. The wait is on. Thanks for the info.

You can't get the Salacious Crumb (VC66) or the Mouse Droid (VC67) at retail. Those 2 were exclusive to the SDCC Mega Death Star Set.

The next set of Revenge carded figures are just showing up in Asia I believe, so it'll be a little bit I guess.

Stuff always shows over that way first in general.  It's made there, and generally just starts to surface at retailers (and otherwise) over there first before it shows up here.

I did not see anything from Wave 9 today.  But there was wave 5 at my nearest Wally World.  Finally got Luke Death Star Escape and some others.  I'm just a few waves behind.  I didn't see any remnants of wave 9 anywhere around here today.
