I got one at my local TRU today.

If I'd had read this before I left, I could have picked up a few more, but, eh.

The cards on these are a lot better looking than the Silver Clones, meaning these aren't all bent to hell.

I was still a little iffy on paying $10 for this, but it's pretty neat, and a good replacement for the other Vader I have no hope of getting.

I got over to my TRU a little late today, and they supposedly had no Silver Vaders left, which sucked since I was able to snag a couple VOTC Stormtroopers there for my $20 worth.  What was odd is they seemed to imply they had alloted X number per day, and sold out todays amount, but would put more out tomorrow.  So I went up to Guest Services, threw a little **** fit telling them there wouldn't be anything left for me to buy tomorrow to qualify for the free Vader, and surprisingly they were able to find ONE more in the store, under one of the cash registers.  Not too great a card, but it'll serve well as my opener.  Now I just need to find me another MOMC one to keep the Silver collection complete!

Anybody else nab their Silver Vaders today, since it's the first day they were technically officially supposed to be available...?

Not I, though I'm gonna need a minty mint one to also keep my collection going.

As much as I wish they'd STOP with these figures, I have to say a complete mint carded set is sorta neat to have.  Like having a loose FreezeFrame or Force File set, or for a vintage nod a loose set of coins.

They're just something different...  One of the few things I hang to carded.

I was able to snag mine with the purchase of the Naboo Final Conflict 4-pack this afternoon at TRU (thanks for the tip, Mike!)

Picked mine up today. Excellent condition cards.  They had them in the back room with the vid games, and let me pull one out of the case.  Picked up the OTC Falcon which was being marked down for its first clearance price of $39.99.  Only a few left.
