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

Nice score!  HAve yet to see him in the wild.

My 6" Stormie from Amazon is on the way.  Hope I get a solid paint job...

Wow!  That's a crazy markdown. I hope they get some later waves in to make it worthwhile.

Picked up a Stormtrooper, Bespin Luke, and Han at TRU last week, since they're actually getting stuff instead of leaving pegs bare. I have to admit, Han and the Stormie are really neat figures. Now to pick up Fett...

Picked up another Sandtrooper at TRU over lunch today, since I already gave in to the army building impule for the regular Stormies. I figured it would look a little silly just having one trooper standing there next to the officer that is due out soon.

Plus I haven't seen this guy around much for quite awhile, thinking I might not have too many more chances at him. I got them to price match the $17.99 online price too.

The wave 1 sandtrooper is the officer, isn't it?  I thought the trooper variant coming out was the "trooper"?  I could be wrong as I can't recall which color the wave one was.  Orange is the officer color though.

D'oh! I guess I had that backwards...thanks for the correction.

There were two oranges that stopped the speeder and iirc entered Docking Bay 94 too.  So there are multiples around anyway. :)

In the OT I always got the sense that rank insignia like the Sandtrooper pauldron colors and the Imperial Officer badges were not given a significant degree of thought.

I had to go back and check...I scored the whole Stormtrooper wave on November 8th LAST YEAR.

That's going on NINE MONTHS now with no new figures in circulation. That can't have been their intention right? What a wasted year this has been so far...

Seriously?  I didn't find the Sandtrooper until like 6 weeks ago.

Was the Stormtrooper really out before Christmas last year?  Feels like he wasn't really out until 3-4 months ago.

My bad...sorry, was looking at an earlier post I had made. It was actually March. I guess a more accurate statement would be we've only had 1 wave of new figures this year.

For some reason it does feel like longer than that.

Found the Biker Scout w/ Speeder Bike set at Target today. They're having a BOGO 40% off sale on all toys this week, so was able to get 2 of these for $32 + tax each. Takes a bit of work to get the Scout on the bike properly, but once he's on it makes for a great display. Check the JD Facebook page for a photo ;)
