It's a lucrative business these days since Hasbro can't do them themselves.  I just want to know when stock goes on the market.

Found the mother lode of wave 3 today. Picked up Rey, Finn, Poe, Kylo, and 2 Troopers plus some others for local peeps. The manager looked at me funny, wondering how many I was going to buy.

Popped mine open just now, and does anyone know how to fix a loose torso joint? One of my Stormies is super loose at the joint. Otherwise, they're great. There were enough there I could pick the best paint apps.

I lucked out and scored wave 3 with the help of a friend. Wave 2 totally skipped out here. If I get lucky again, I may have to pick up another set to trade.  ::)

Found Wave 2 and 3 at my local Walmart.  Guess they were waiting for the TFA to open.

That's what I was hoping for as well, but unfortunately, all I found was remnants of a Wave 2 case.

I'm definitely going to keep hitting the two closest WalMarts to me in hopes of scoring Wave 3...

I forgot to mention that I picked up Kylo Ren and 3 FO Stormtroopers.  :D

Picked up another FO Stormtrooper, so I'm officially at 6 now.  Glad to see that these are showing up with some regularity.

Oh, and the new Leia?  Pegwarming already.  I saw a good number of Leia figures lingering, while the SA Kylo Ren which is packed in greater numbers has sold through.  Hmmmm...

Pick up this morning the # 14 imperial navy commander 3.75 inches figure.

Still think he is an imperial navy trooper,because of  no badge on chest and black uniform.


The update of the vintage death commander would be welcome on this line.

Picked up the Walmart exclusive Black series Captain Phasma today.  I was a little surprised by finding her and not Leia.  I really thought Leia would be the last to go.

The paint apps on the Phasma that I picked up were not perfect.  I may keep it boxed until I can find a better one.  But these have been kind of scarce so far, so I didn't want to pass.  Especially after my blunder of passing on the 6" versions of Hux and Atsy.
