Steve, if you want 2 Droidekas let me know, I can probably get them for you.

I'll probably hold off, but thanks for the offer, Jesse.

Got to walk into my first Five Below while on the east coast. Disappointed to find no trace of Vintage figures, but did find TPM Walmart Exclusive wave.

I was able to get the beautiful and well-done Art of the Clone Wars coffee-table style book shrinkwrapped and all for a mere $4.

ANOTHER report this morning of Malgi spotted at 5B in Texas. (JTA) And to pour even more salt into the wounds, they're now getting cool TCW figures like Clone Commander Fox too. Dang, I would load up on some of those.

Please bring some of that Texas love to sweet VA.

So the Malgus wave has been hitting again here, saw the wheelbarrow o' goodness today and picked up the following:
4 INC
1 each Malgus, hoth Luke and Sidious
6 TCW clone commander Fox (brings me to nine carded plus 1 loose I have altogether, do not ask me why, I cannot resist buying this figure whenever I see him)

Shae/star killer wave in 2014?  ???

I got inc figs this weekend too.  7 total.  Wish more.  People are still hoarding Malgus...  Wonder how those financial wizards haven't retired to the Cayman Islands yet.

Scored 3 INC's yesterday.  Oh, and my ONLY sighting of a Darth Malgus in the wild.  EVER.  Picked him up, too.

Gotta love 5 Below!

Wrapped gifts tonight and opened up my INC's and a Box Bottom set I got at K-Mart...  The INC's head swaps to the others perfectly.  He mixes in very well with the K-Mart sets for head swaps. :)

I went back today to see if they had pulled any more of these out of the back room and they were totally cleaned out. They must have sold through 3-4 cases easily in the space of about 2 days.

By comparison, my local Targets have probably not sold that many TVC figures collectively in the past 3 months.

Picked up a pair of INCs at my local Five Below on Monday - they were well picked over, so those two were the only ones left and the only figures worth getting. Was hoping for a few more INCs, but these two bring my count of opened INCs up to 10 so if I never find any more it's not like it's a big deal.

I picked up 5 more INC's yesterday from a 5 Below I don't normally get to very often, was the most interesting figure they had left. I hope they continue to dabble in SW for 2014, it's been a good source for otherwise MIA TVC figs.

Wish I could find more but the area's cleaned out and has been for a while.  I'd love to expand the INC army.  :-\

From what I've seen, Five Below stores blow through the TVC stuff so fast, it's insane... they are the only place that can more the TPM carry forwards... they do get stuck with some Qui Gons but I am hoping now after yet another sell-through with more Malgus cases, they are eager to get later waves of TVC.  I'm betting they will.

Scored another INC today.  Glad to see these are still trickling out.  And I'm also hoping that some of the later TVC waves will trickle out, too.  Although it might be overly optimistic for me to hope to see the TVC Emporer's Royal Guard and Old Republic Trooper turn up at 5 Below stores.

Stopped by today and although there was no new vintage out, I did see Wolverine and GI Joe figures there for the first time.
