It looked like Deluxe Wave 3 hit our local Target recently, as I spotted a few of the remains.  There was one Spider Droid laying on the bottom shelf by itself, and I saw another guy with a Stass Allie in his hand.  I wasn't really interested in either, so no big deal.  Funny though, Deluxe Wave 2 never did show around here (or at least not yet), and the pegs are otherwise packed to the gills with Obi/SBD and the Palpy figure.  Thanks to Amazon, I got the Wave 2 figs I wanted, but it would be nice to see them show up locally as well.  I really like that Vader Med Table figure for some reason.  Otherwise, nothing else new here.  Looked around a bit for the Tarkin wave, but didn't find it.  Didn't really expect to either though.  Hopefully those will start showing up soon.  Kind of a slow time right now, but my wallet is thankful for that ;).

Found both Meena Tills and Ask Aak this morning at my local WalMart, there were two of each but only grabbed one - all of the cards were in bad shape (which is probably why I found them) - no Tarkin figures to be found anywhere.  :-[

Will hit some stores on the way home tonight to see if any other stores got them in - also going to check Target for Deluxe Wave 3.

Glad that stuff is still hitting - was actually shocked to see the latest Col 2 Wave this morning!

I found the Tarkin wave (which in a month is scheduled to be 3 a piece per figure so 9 of the figures will be in one case so these 3 figures will be overloaded on the pegs) and I found 7 AT-TE gunners, 6 at a TRU (I got 3, left 4) and 1 at the Target next door (which I left). Found a ton of #6 and #41 clones also yesterday. I also found 3 Royal Blue guards that I hid since I have my 2 for collectors. If no one wanted them then I'll put them into play on Monday.

Found the Mustafar playset and one of the MM playsets today at Target.  Brokedown and also bought a spider droid.  No sign of 45 to 47.

Found my second tan Wookie #43 at Target today.  They seem to put out lots of this wave, but finding #41 Clones is a crap shoot.  Neimodians, though...  ::)

Caved in and bought an ARC-170 :-\  Not seeing enough of them around to justify waiting for clearance.  Sigh.

That's nothing to ashamed about.  I doubt they will ever go to clearance.  I have a hard time not buying one everytime I see them.  I'm up to 4 already.  I figured that since I saw 12 x-wings, I can still play catch up.
