Forgot to mention earlier that Wal-Mart also had a few of the "Battle Arenas" in stock as well.  There were Mace vs. Sidious and Dooku vs. Anakin sets scattered in the action figure aisle.  Once again, the Star Wars section, as well as the general action figure aisle, was a total war zone.  There is always a few problems, but yesterday was really bad.  I tried to clean up a little of what I could, but I would have had to stay there an hour to get it all taken care of.  Yikes.

I may have to see if anyone could pick me up a few clone commanders, at-te gunners and pilots since they haven't shown up in NC yet  :'(
I'm still looking though, at least once a week and will be going out again tomorrow.
Other than vader, grevious and the elusive red/blue imperial guard,  all the other 32 figs up to aalya are readily available here.

Scored a #43 Wookiee Warrior at Target today. Thanks to Hasbro's whack case assortments, this was the only #41 and up figure I found.  :P

I did score a Deluxe Yoda and a Vulture Droid too, so that's groovy.

Still no exclusive Clones. I bet my local store is holding out for Sunday, the bastards.

I managed to dig 2 Tank Gunners from the bottom of the "bin of death" at Wal-Mart this morning. No telling how long they had been there since they were so close to the bottom.

This isn't really a toy, but I bought the ROTS game. Haven't played it yet because I don't want to ruin the story for me.

Here's a recap of my activity since Midnight Madness. 

April 17th I bought a Clone Commander, Vader's Medical Droid, AT-TE Tank Gunner (they had two), & Exploding Grievous at my local Wal-Mart.

I also spotted two Mas Amedda and one Clone Pilot on this trip.  Didn't get either.  I didn't realize how lucky I was to find these this early on until I got home with them and started checking what others had found so far. 

April 29th I bought one each of #'s 41, 42, 43, & 44.  I also found 8 Commander's & 8 Pilot's.  I picked up 5 Commander's & 3 Pilot's to trade for some stuff I wanted.  All were also at my local Wal-Mart. 

April 30th I bought a Red saber #35, and another Clone Pilot at Wal-Mart a town over from me.

May 6th I made a trip to my local Wal-Mart which had nothing.  I figured I might as well go to the Wal-Mart 15 minutes away and found 2 Polis Massan's, which I have been looking harder for than any others.  I got 7 figures in all.  Mas Amedda, 2 Polis (one to open, other to keep carded), 2 AT-TE Tank Gunner's (one to open, and one to trade), another Vader's Medical Droid (to open), and a #6 Clone.  Still no sign of any of the new deluxe wave around here.

Good luck. Out of the two I went to this morning neither of them had any.

But I did manage to get #42 and #43 and a Blue Guard thanks to Avenging Knight.

My local walmart had about 15 Clone pilots today.  Boy is that a crappy figure.   It sorta makes me sneeze.  I have yet to find a single clone commander though.  Out of the first 44 that is the only one I have not even seen not even in some dude's hand.  They must be flying of those pegs.  My local Targets had no clone troopers today but that is no surprise since they put them out almost 3 weeks ago.

Picked up Deluxe Vader, Deluxe Yoda, Deluxe Clone, Grievious Cup, Wookie Warrior, and Clone Commander.  No Target Clones in sight.
