Managed to find both Yoda and the TIE pilot at a TRU two days ago. The store got in several cases. Someone nabbed all but one TIE pilots and left the rest. (And no, it wasn't me.  :P)

That's awesome, we haven't gotten a whiff of those here yet. I keep hoping Amazon will get them back in stock for a reasonable price but that doesn't seem likely.

I did receive a bunch of Clone Troopers in the mail this week I ordered off HTS and Amazon when they were running those cheap deals recently. That's another wave that never saw the light of day here.

I've been hoping Anakin gets to nice prices but nope.  Of course, he's sold out at HTS after I've been eyeing for specials... was late on that.

Classic toy karma, one post about not finding new 6" was all it took. A late night series of surgical Target strikes netted me a brand new TIE Pilot and Yoda.  ;D

Oddly, I found just those 2 figures and then at the next closest Target I found Obi-Wan and the Clone Sergeant. Weird coincedence, or maybe they are breaking up cases like with the 3&3/4" stuff?

By the time I got home I was literally too tired to open either one, but I can already tell I am going to need multiple TIE Pilots...that dude is bad-ass!

Not a purchase, but an interesting find related to the Black Series 6" figures.  One Amazon seller is offering a 6" scale softgoods Jedi robe.  Thus far the only figures that it's appropriate for are the ROTS versions of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.  But with the potential for more Jedi figures in the near future, this could be a cool accessory.

That looks awesome.  Thanks for posting!  I ordered two.  This is a great look for Kenobi.  Not sure about using the other for Anakin - the color might be too light - but I'm sure I'll want to use one on a later release down the road.

Hey all,

I finally made my first Star Wars purchases in what seems like forever. Last night I grabbed the Prototype Boba Fett from Walgreens, and I have Jabba and a Speeder Bike on the way from Amazon. Can't wait to see those in person.

Happy hunting all!

Nice grabs.  I think you'll really enjoy all of those.

My Custom 6" robes from Amazon are supposed to arrive today.
