I too am tempted to pick up spares, but have managed to resist just yet.  $10 after taxes is steep up here.  I may do the imperials carded and even held Chewie in my hands before coming to my senses.  Even Han looks good, but do I really need that figure AGAIN?

I know what you mean Brent.  Actually, when I located the Dagobah wave, I ended up picking up a Han, even though I have several of them already.  I usually try to get an extra Han of each release though, to keep carded, just for the heck of it.  I have been tempted to pick up more of these though, just because of the beautiful cardbacks, but I can't justify the cost either.  I've really been trying to convince my wife that I need two sets of the VOTC, but I don't think she's buying....yet ;)

Finally found the Jedi Council Scene I at TRU today. Ki-Adi had overdone eye shadow. He looked like CC DeVille, so I didn't buy one.

Guess I'll wait for the next batch, IF this one sells through, which I doubt.

That's funny--that's probably the only way I would buy that set!!

Well, it seems that first batch of OTC figures has blown in and blown out of every Wal*Mart and KMart around here, and all I have to show for it is a Dagobah Luke and Yoda and a VOTC Han.

Not too bad, I guess, but I need those Bespin figures to spur me to finish building Cloud City!!

Dang!  OTC has finally hit Target, and it looks like it's gonna hit hard!  I found the following today:

OTC 12" Fett (gray), Stormtrooper, Luke
OTC Lightsabers (electronic and basic)
OTC X-Wing ($20)
OTC TIE Fighter ($20)
OTC Falcon ($50)
vOTC Han, Leia, Ben ($10)
OTC Bespin Wave ($5)
Unleashed Leia ($15)
Unleashed Obi-Wan ($15)
and, tucked around the aisle, the Galactic Heroes Falcon ($30)

I grabbed myself a new Falcon and left the rest!

At least 1/2 the aisle was packed with the OTC stuff and it looked GREAT.  They (Target) reset with all new GI Joe, Batman Animated, JL Unlimited stuff too.  I'd say watch for all Targets to reset the aisle soon!

and, tucked around the aisle, the Galactic Heroes Falcon ($30)

I meant to mention this last night, as I came across most of the same things at one of my local Targets too.  No OTC basic figures still, or 12", but since the Saga figures are really starting to thin out now, hopefully it will be soon!

BTW, I picked up a couple MOMC Unleashed Leias for anyone who might want them - especially those folks who I'm already sending SDCC stuff to in the next few days.  So give me a holler if you're interested.  $16.22 each (which includes tax).

I'll be looking for new stuff today.... Last time I was at Target, there were 3 Basic Figs, but PLENTY of Ultra Wave 1 and Animated Dooku.

Found an Ask Yoda at TRU today.

Such an exciting item, to be sure. :P ::)

I saw the OTC Lightsabers, X-Wing, and TIE Fighters at a Super Target today. But where were the Basic Figs? Nowhere to be found. Perhaps employees will set them out once those Animated Dooku figs go away.

Brought home a haul tonight from the local Super Target.

VOTC Han, Ben and Leia
12" Gray Fett
Wave 1 of Galactic Heroes
Unleashed Leia

I'm glad my wife went to the restroom while I was checking out. Only my five month-old knows I dropped $102 tonight.  :-[

Also, a couple of aisles over they had 10 pegs of Cartoon Network Clone Wars figs on clearance for $3.98 ea. The nice thing is that they were case fresh on crisp card backs. Good way to complete the set if you missed out the first time although I passed because I just don't like the Clone Wars cartoons. (Blasphemy?!?)

Happy Hunting!

Tonight I found the Bespin wave at Wally World.  Still looking for the Dagobah guys.

Couple fresh cases of VOTC at two different Wally Worlds tonight!  Still no Lukes though.

But if anyone needs Han or Ben (the Leias are already spoken for), especially the fellas with SDCC loot headed their way soon, then give me a shout!   :-*  $10.64 each...

I found the VOTC at Media Play ($12.99) and Kmart ($9.99) but since I cheated and ordered from EE I have to wait to actually get them  :'(.

I didn't know that the Galactic Heroes had a Falcon.  I'll have to add that to the list  :D.

Scored a lone Stormtrooper at Wally World today. It certainly whipped me out of my bitchy little funk, I'll say that. ;D
