No Luke here in Iowa yet.  I'm still looking for Dagobah Yoda and Spirit Ben.  Sigh.

Went on a little more extended search this weekend, visiting the Wal-Mart and Target on the other side of town.  Both had OTC/VOTC waves, mainly Dagobah and Bespin figures, as well as a few repacks.  I picked up an extra Dagobah Yoda, the first one I found had kind of messed up paint on the face, and I really like this figure so figured I'd get another one.  Kind of wish I hadn't gotten too impatient with the first VOTC figures (ordering via Amazon), Wal-Mart literally probably had 10 each of Han and Obi, and 3-4 Leias as well.  Target had about 3 each of Han and Obi.  Still, I won't hesitate to pick up figs from the ESB/ROTJ waves if they show up at Amazon, I just don't think those will hang as long as Han and Obi.  Still no signs of Vader, Yoda, or Luke around here though, hopefully soon.

You know, it is really nice to see the Star Wars sections getting expanded again at the stores.  Target and Wal-Mart both seem to have more room allocated to them, and I think the black and silver cards really look nice hanging on the pegs.  Should be a fun next year or so, with the DVDs and Episode III bringing Star Wars to the forefront again.

I just cancelled my order for wave 1 (VOTC) with EE since I came across Ben and Han and decided to buy them.  Now I can see why everyone thought Han was the best, it really is a great figure.  He's going to go great in the cantina scene and should fit well in the Falcon also.  Ben's cape is a little big but I like soft goods better than vinyl or hard plastic so I'll take it.  No luck with Luke, Vader or Yoda but I do have wave 2.5 on order still and will keep it just because it's a one-of-each case.

Haven't found it myself and while skimming the posts in the Michigan thread at RS, it doesn't look like anyone has in the whole state yet.

I have not found a carded "handstand" Luke yet either, Dave.  :(

BUT, I did grab OTC Jawas, Snowtrooper and Tusken Raider repacks at Target tonight!

In fact I scooped up an extra Jawa/Tusken/Snowtrooper for those interested...
edit: sold already! - Jeff

So, now I'm set with OTC #1-28, and I'll have all 6 of the currently shipping vOTC (luke, leia, han, ben, vader, yoda) by Friday!  :)

The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Finally caught up on the VOTC as of today ;D  Found a couple lone Vaders that I was missing.  Now if I could only locate some OTC.  My area has seemed to dry up of these.

Stopped by TRU on Friday night while we were out and about, and was fortunate enough to find a VOTC Luke and Yoda.  Missed the Vader though.  Our TRU hasn't had any VOTC since about a month ago, and someone who was working there told me they got two "boxes" of them in that morning, and "one guy" came in a bought a stack of them.  Nice employee at TRU though, he was quite excited about the VOTC line, and seemed to be a good guy.  I got the last of the Yoda and Luke, there were still 3-4 Hans hanging out.  Just need Vader to get caught up now, until the others start showing up  :)

Jeff picked up some extra Jawas and a Tusken for me, I really didn't need them but I though I could use them somewhere.  I think I am now officially done with the OTC :P

My search continues for VOTC Yoda and Vader, and OTC Jawas, Tusken, and Gamorrean Guard.  :(

That damnable Saga Madine's still on my list too...
