I'd like to find the Dagobah wave.

Instead, I found a fresh case of the Saga Star Destroyer wave at Wal-Mart. Talk about a slap in the face.

Found pretty much all the OTC today...passed it up though. Aren't I an odd fellow!
Actually, I'm saving my cash for VOTC at the moment.

Finally, found same assortment as Dale, minus the Jedi Luke.  Only bought the Dagobah figures though.  Must admit that the others are quite tempting as these are really quite spectacular cards, even if some of the stickers are applied in sloppy fashion.  

Yoda looks strangely familiar though.  If any of you happen to own the Tomy mini-dioramas, take a look at Yoda from Series 2.  Separated at birth? :o

There hasn't been a sighting of OTC in more than a week here.

Sad, really.

I found VOTC figures at TRU yesterday morning.  They had all of them except for Luke.  I picked up (and opened) one VOTC Han.  All I can say about Han is believe the hype.   :P

Believe the hype and multiply by 10 even FG...  That's a nice figure!

None of them are perfect, but he and Leia are quite nice...  Obi's still the nicest Obi you'll ever find to sit in your speeder too.  The only one actually.  I swapped robes on him with an Obi Pilot, and he looks better.  Still plan n making a limper fabric cloak though.  Hasbro must've run out of the material used on Total Control Mace or something.

That figure's robe is perfect as far as texture.

I haven't picked up anything new (found Dagobah and Bespin waves last weekend), but I did see a few OTC here and there (at Wal-Mart).  From what was left on the pegs, I saw 1x Lobot, 1x Cloud Car Pilot, 1x Boba Fett repack and that was about it.  Everything I saw last week when I picked up my figs was gone, so they seem to be selling pretty good so far.  On a side note, when I checked the figs at Wal-Mart, I did see an about 6-year old boy pick up a Fett and a Wicket and ask his parents if he could get those (and they said yes).  It was nice to see a young'n interested in Star Wars, especially the OT.  I also saw 2x of the Jedi Council pack at TRU, but couldn't bring myself to spend $20 on it.  I do want to get it so I can have the whole circle though, so maybe another time.  It just felt like I was buying some old Episode I figures (which you basically are with that set).

Walmarts around here have full endcaps with new stuff.  Too bad all the army builders are gone.  Still no sign of VOTC though.

I was curious...it seems the general consensus on the OTC is that the cardbacks are pretty fantabulous...has it tempted any of you to leave them carded (that normally don't)?  I am a loose collector, but...until I clear some space...I have left the Dagobah and Bespin waves in their boxes, stacked in the closet.  I plan on opening them up later this week sometime once I have time to reorganize a little, but I was wondering if any of you (who collect loose) have been tempted to leave them carded...or to pick up extras of any in particular?

I'm a total loose collector Mosnab, but I have had a slight temptation for carded with these cards.  They really are amazing looking.

However, to me I just can't justify 2 sets of figures to look at...  not right now anyway.  I'll maybe nab something I think is really special looking for a carded keeper, but I doubt it...  My Silver figures will likely be the only carded figures aside from Vintage that I have hanging about in a display.

I've been tempted, but no, I haven't picked up any extras to keep carded. I have to admit that C-3PO, Fett, Cloud Car Pilot, Dagobah Luke, Yoda, & Bespin Luke (which I haven't seen in person) look awesome carded.
