Saw the one with Ahsoka at a Marshalls today, not the other one. $10 as said. Not worth it to me, though the clone is at least the good old body, not the somewhat feminine under-articulated Stone body (which is more show accurate, which I don't care about).

I checked my local TJ Maxx and Marshall's yesterday after work (interestingly, both stores are in the same shopping center), and there was no sign of these sets.  But, it wasn't a totally wasted trip: I got a Polly Pockets set for my daughter, and I got the TVC Mace Windu (they had tons of the AOTC wave) for $4.99.

Great success on my lunch run yesterday...TJ Maxx was a bust but I found a whole case of these at Marshall's and bought them all.  ;D

I definitely like 'em more than the blander DVD-less Euro versions.

I wonder what kind of quantities these were produced in, and if they will dry up quickly again or linger for awhile.

It would sure be nice to see the Mandalorian Assault Transport and Scout Bomber start turning up at these places too...

ps - why do I always see hot, sort of trashy women at these stores? who knew?

Always hotties looking for "bargain" clothes. Like there's always at least one cashier at Target who fills out her khakis nicely.  :)

Seeing the bids on that Ahsoka set (over $40!), I wish I'd gotten one to resell. But I think most people are wise now and/or there'll be dozens listed within a week.

I hit up a local TJ Maxx last night (Minneapolis), but no luck.  Doesn't seem like they're hitting this area, or at least not yet.

I scored a set of these today.  They're okay for $10.  Especially when you consider that CW basic figures cost at least $7.99 each.

Looks like the scuzzballs who thought they'd take advantage of these hitting will be taking a bath on eBay. Nice!

Four Marshalls in four days and nada to show for it.  I guess they're just not hitting my area.

Whoops, you're right.  My apologies...  I was browsing on my phone when I did that and damned if I didn't think you were the same guy.  :)  I was looking right at you saying you'd found them, then thinking you said you didn't, and just went right to quotes.  :)  Sorry man. 

Glad at least someone found them because I didn't either.  I was all set to pick a set up for here thinking with all the TJ Maxx/Marshalls around that I'd find them but nope.

I'm gonna try to find them again today.  Back to the Marshalls near work, because I really want a shot at getting that Scythe figure (not too interested in Gearshift, though).

These wound up hitting here this past week, and I bought the only set with the brain works that I saw.  Marshalls had 1 of the Obi set, and TJ Maxx had 2 of it left.  Figured I'd get it for trade bait if someone needed it, and take it back if they don't I guess.
