With the way my local stores are stocked, it might be a long time before I get a new purchase.  Loads of ****-eyed Leias on the pegs that no one is going to buy for $20.  Please, Hasbro, send out the reps and pull these catastrophes off the pegs to get new product on the pegs.

Time for a Relo Steve.

Burnsville, MN??  :P

If you're up for that kind of drive.  I think the Austin MN Target might be closer.   ;)

Actually, I'd probably find the Stormtrooper there (hordes of them) and swap them, drive up your way and share the loot.

Okay, do that then!  I haven't seen any sign of wave 3 around here, but did order the Luke off of HTS with their 20% off sale.

Got the Stormtrooper from HTS a while back. Wasn't too broke up about the additional expense as I probable saved twice than much in gas trying to track him down at retail already.

That said, I was bummed that I got one with a bad belt. I had to glue at the seam to keep it from falling off. Still, a nice shiny stormtrooper.

The three Targets I cleaned out a week or two back all re-stocked over the weekend with the newest wave.  :)

I was able to score two more Stormtroopers and my buddy got the third. Hoping the log jam has now abated and these will resume selling through as they were before that whole Greedo/Leia debacle.

Luckily one of the Stormtroopers I found had decent paint apps around the eyes, the other was as bad as the first one I bought. Seems to be a real challenge for them.

Glad to be done with this wave more or less, will be hard to resist buying more Stormies if I see 'em though.

Then it went to pre order for shipping 5/5 and then back out of stock

Same here. Figures it would work out this way.......

Gotta love that four minute window of opportunity.  Too bad no one saw this coming.   ::) I hope between this and the Fett shortage we can all agree that assortment is still Hasbro's biggest shortcoming.

If anyone's still looking for a Fett, the Disney store by my office had 5 of them today.  They were $25 each plus tax... I'd be happy to swing by tomorrow at lunch and see if there are any left.

Snagged another Stormtrooper at TRU this morning...it finally popped back up on their website too (the listing that is, still not available to order) so I was able to get them to price-match the $17.99 online price.  8)

This one has the bad paint apps between the eyes too, must be an epidemic.

Congrats!  Wish I could find them in the wild.  You know, I think it may not be bad paint apps, but the EU trooper we've never seen: Unibrow-trooper.

I was surprised to find an extra Boba Fett at my local TRU, is anyone interested in trading it for an R2-D2 or Stormtrooper?  I'm in Canada, so shipping will be a couple more bucks for shipping to each other.  Please PM me if you'd like to set up a trade!

Snagged Boba Fett at the super-shady K-Mart across town today, still on sale for $17.59 too.  :)
