This veered way off topic, so apologies to everyone who doesn't give a poop. :P  I used to have great chats like this with darthschroeder and CorranHorn on FFURG's chat program...  I miss these talks.  They were a blast.  You'd have had fun with it Lando.

Good times, good times.  :D

Only one of the three local WMs in my area has gotten this wave (three times, actually), and each time, Bastilla has been the only figure gone when I show up.  Given how ****** distribution has been this year, I guess I'm going to have to go on Ebay or something to get one. 

The good news is that, aside from the Endor Capture Luke (Revenge card), all the figures sell pretty quickly.  The bad news is that, with mostly empty pegs, this WM just restocked this morning with 5 cases of wave 5.  So yes, more yellow helmet 212th Clones, yellow helmet Stormtroopers, Hans, DSE Lukes, and R5-D4s, not to mention even more Sandtroopers.  Ugh.

And let's not even talk about my local Target, which, after having its stock of Dengar, Cloud Car Pilots, Sandtroopers, and ROTS Clones cleared out by the Hasbro reps a few weeks back, still only has remnants of the one case of wave 5 they stocked in their place.  Toys R Us isn't much better, as they have a small glut of wave 6, and since it took them 6 months to get those cases in, I'm not holding out much hope for wave 9 at all.

(Not to mention the fact that, outside of Logray and the RFT reshipped in the w9 cases, I haven't seen hide nor hair of Han/ARC/Bom/Barriss from wave 7).

Mine are stocking up with Wave 4 and 6.

Good figures in Wave 4 & 6, and some good carry-forwards even, but lots of crappola too.  Seeing that Clone, after they'd pulled so many, just leaves a pit in your stomach.  I mean, seriously.  And this isn't Hasbro...  this is all WM/whoever else ordered so much of these waves.

I came across two cases at a Walmart in another town early one Friday morning before work. I was so excited to find Walrusman, A wing pilot RFT, Bastilla, and Echo base guy, I forgot all about a tie pilot. Went back to look that Sunday and both cases were gone. I have a feeling if I was a couple of hours later that Friday, I would have found nothing.

Since then, no Walmart Target or TRU has them!!! If you see them grab them then! They don't last!

Broke down and found the wave on 3 on ebay for a seemingly fair price. My Walmert has not restocked in about 2 months so i am thinking it was the way to go.

I've seen the entire wave at Wal-Mart and remnants at TRU. Guess Texas is just weird.

Found remnants, including a lone Echo and Fleet Trooper, at a local K-Mart.  Picked them up.

2 WM's and a Target on the same run...

Target still has the same Sandtroopers they've had since Hasbro pulled stuff.  Why isn't Target getting anything here?  Who knows.

First Wal-Mart has the same Wave 4 they got in last week.

Second Wal-Mart...  Well, I took a picture of that ball of sadness.  Two rows of pegs, clogged to the gills with fresh wave 5 cases in each row of pegs.  ::)

Friggin' Wal-Mart.

So I was Googlin' around tonight looking for reference photos in order to make "Teak" from the Holiday Special when I stubbled across some interesting photography. Several images show that it was actually the left arm of Ponda Baba that was severed by Obi-Wan and not the right one (note the breast pocket to confirm that this image is not horizontally flipped).





Other images show he was to lose his head too.


So is the current Walrus Man technically wrong since he has the wrong arm chopped off, he includes Evazon's blaster instead of his own specialized blaster and that he is missing the yellow stripe down his pant legs?
