Saturday I picked up;

Z-95 Headhunter
P-38 Magnafighter
Anakins CW Jedi Starfighter
Rogue Tie Fighter
B-wing
Ayla Securas Jedi Starfighter

At Target

Picked up the same today at Target.  Not a bad wave at all - including the repaints.   :-X

Quick question for those of you who are still collecting Titaniums... Did they ever release a BSG Cylon Baystar with this line? I seem to remember it at least being rumored at some point but I don't remember ever seeing it (or a picture of one) and haven't heard anything about it in a while.

Unfortunately - it got cancelled.   :(

That's a drag.  :(

Some nice stuff, some boring stuff...  I like the Twilight a lot.  This is a line that, had it not spiked in price so much, I'd be giddily collecting it still.  I picked up the TIE Defender the other day and I must say it ALMOST sparked my interest in it again.  I just can't get past the absurd price for the line though, especially with it being comprised mostly of repaints for the past year or more.  Hasbro doesn't have much of an excuse to ask inflated prices for something you know isn't costing them a lot. :(

Still, this is a great line for vehicle fans, but I just have to sit back and watch.  I'm hopeful I can get large lots for cheap down the road, and complete a collection when more and more people bail on it over time.

I would never let any of my titaniums go if when I decide to let Star Wars go.  Was a big fan of Micro Machines as a kid and this is a fantastic line - repaints and inflated prices aside.

Nice!  Definitely picking up the two new ships and the repainted Imperial Shuttle (my fav ship), but I'm getting so lost and fed up on the repaints.  I miss the days long ago.. ... .. ...

To my surprise, I found a Starbuck viper with the new SW wave yesterday. Didn't know one was in the works.

Picked up the Mark II repaint at Target for $8.19 before tax.  Is that how much titaniums are going these days???  If this is a continuing trend, it'll be very easy to quit being a completist on this line.

The same can/should be said for 3 3/4" action figures - even though tites should be 99 cents a pop like HW crap despite the fact that many of the new tites are primarily made of plastic.

Found a Cloud Car the other day, but a few have still eluded me.
I think it was $6.98 before tax at Wally.

Yet to find:closed Wing X-Wing, Rebel Transport or Mon Calimari ship.
Pretty sure those are the only ones I'm after, anyone have a good checklist with pics?

I am so glad they are making bounty hunter ships. Bring on some more.
