Dang!

Back from the lake to discover the OTC is hitting retail!  

Even saw a few reports that the OTC is in Wisconsin!  Guess I better hit Wal-Mart and K-Mart over lunch today...

No doubt on the weather, fishing was good but the nights got a little nippy.  I was gonna try my secret spot this lunch time but I really don't need anything at retail so I may not :P

I don't need anything at retail either since I'm expecting my cases on Friday too, but that sure as heck never stopped me before!

I hear you...I would like to see how breathtaking these puppies are on the pegs.  Although if our predictions hold out, we'll be seeing these for some time to come :-\

Wait...you say you found VOTC at retail or did Jared hook you up Matt????

Kind of a combination of both.  Jared found them at retail, and stashed 'em for me!   ;D

No sign of VOTC yet, but I did just find a fresh case of the OTC Bespin wave...which now means I have all 20 OTC figures! I shocked at how quickly I've found all of these, esp. since TN is usually one of the last to get new waves.

I guess I'm kinda glad that stuff showed up out in Tennessee after I left, 'cause how the hell would I have carefully transported 20 (actually double that) figures back to Cali?   :P

So does your floor look like this now Jamie:



At least I beat your ass to the VOTC goodies!   :P

According to Jared (who picked up waves 7-10 at EE) over in the recarded/rehashed thread...

The Luke pose variation was the standing version in all cases except wave 9 (I have to double check that that's the right wave, the box says WV7.25 on it) which is the handstand version.

Damn JediMac, how the hell did you get 90% of the line already?

I'm buying if anyone is selling, btw...

I found the remains of the Dagobah wave at a local SWM yesterday afternoon.  Two Dagobah Lukes (both standing), two R2's, a single Spirit Obi-Wan, and one each of the X-Wing and Jedi Luke recards.  

I picked up one of each of the Dagobah wave (Obi-Wan's card looked like it had a run-in with a weed eater; thank Jebus I'm a loose collector) and got them home, only to find that Luke had two right arms for the handstand version.  Thankfully, the SWM allowed me to exchange it for the other Dagobah Luke which was still hanging about an hour or so later, and that one was fine.  So it looks like this SWM just got one case and that was it.

Another local SWM restocked with figures, but it was eight pegs worth of the Jedi Luke wave of Saga figures from earlier this year.  Needless to say I will not be checking that WM for OTC figures anytime soon.  And K-Mart had an old POTJ figure (Saesee Tiin on a severely damaged card) on their pegs alongside about four Dexter Jettsters) and that was it.  No VOTC, no Galactic Heroes, nothing else.

I figure Target will be getting stuff in in a few weeks for their fall reset and maybe then it will be easier to find things.

Yeah, Jeff speaks the truth.  Those aren't mine guys...   :'(

They're Tydirium's.  He posted a pic (at my begging) of all his loot over in the recarded rehashes up the ying yang thread last night, and I slapped it over here too.  Forgot folks might not see his original post.  Sorry for the confusion there!   :P

And Andrew, that's not 90% of the current OTC lineup released, that's the full 100% at this point...   ;)

Awesome stuff, eh?!   8)

Looks like jjks has moved into a tie with Jared here for first place, and Jamie doesn't even cheat (through EE) either!  Nice job Jamie!

Don't let Matt fool you, that's not his collection!  ;D

I am curious how Ty found the Bespin Luke, TIE Pilot, Bossk, and IG-88 already. I haven't heard any reports of that assortment hitting anywhere. Aside from those four, I can recreate that same scene on my carpet too.

I've only found the handstand Dagobah Luke once, and if I remember right I pulled him out of a case that had both the handstand and upright Luke in it.

From EE, like I mentioned above Jamie...   :P

Hint:  EE = Entertainment Earth   :-*

But kudos to you for finding them the old fashioned way!  Bugs that crap outta me that Jared "cheats" all the time!   ::)
