Got Count Dooku last night.  I had passed on it but upon learning that you can chop off the hands and head, well hell I rushed to Target and picked one of the 22 there. 

TRU had the megapacks.  But those dumb TRU employees were opening up the megapacks and putting the individual figures on the pegs.  If I had not seen it with my own eyes I would not believe it.  Nice :-X

At the downtown SLC Walmart on 1300 South and at the Lindon Wamart (near to Provo) the following figures were found and purchased:
Obi Wan Kenobi Pilot
Black Clone Pilot
Green Clone Commander
Red Shock Clone Trooper
AT-RT Driver
Mustfar Sentry

I was not there, I was late so all I got was Obi Wan Pilot which is the SA Obi Wan we want, and the cloak comes off, AND he fits in the starfighter, and his knees with his feet, waist, shoulders, elbows, hand and head all move anyway  but this is the case figure I have come up with that hit based on SSG.

The #6 clone is the shock trooper clone.
The single Commander is the Green Commander.
Rest fit. Only thing I cannot figure out is that there were 2 Black Clone pilots per case but I do not know what they replaced. Hopefully I find out tonight at a local Wally.

Most successful and satifying hunt I've had in a LONG time! First, here is the case I found tonight after scoring my own Green Commander, Shock Trooper, AT-RT (and my son scored an Obi Wan Pilot that he wanted for him because he doesn't want to "borrow" mine, he wanted his own!).

Case 87153A009
1 Green clone commander
1 Shock Trooper
1 AT-RT Driver
1 Obi Wan Pilot
2 Grevious (4 swords)
2 Darth Vader
1 SA Clone #42
1 Yoda
1 Emperor
1 Bacara

I took the Green Clone Commander, the Shock Trooper, the AT-RT Driver, and my son was with me and he bought the Obi Wan Pilot.

Then we went to another Wally and found 2 different cases. The first is the one above. The second I could not find the case number but here is the breakdown sort of:
2 Shock Trooper Clones
1 AT-RT
1 Green Clone Commander
1 R2D2
2 Anakin on Mustafar or Crispy Anakin
1 Yoda
1 Emperor

3 other figures that I believe are 2 Vaders and 1 Grevious but I could not be sure. Reason is there was a Dad there with his two sons and I told them about the new stuff. The oldest son collects the Galatic Heros, but then we opened up cases (there were 5 of the 85173A009 and 3 of the second one I listed) and each son took 1 of the Green Clone Commander, the AT-RT Driver, the Shock Trooper and the Obi Wan Pilot. Then one took an Anakin on Mustafar. The coolest thing was I had my 11 year old son with me and as we were walking out to the car, my son said "Dad, that is a great feeling to help others get excited about our hobby!" Let me tell you, I was extremely proud of my son.

Holy crap, nice find Black Dog!  Did you come across the black Clone Pilot figure as well?  I saw another Utah collector mention finding that one out there too...

Great story, that's the way this hobby should be.

Also, congrats on the finds.  I can't wait to get Pilot Obi.

The Black Clone Pilot has been found, and was there, I just didnt want him so I didn't mention him or look for him. Another collector who came about an hour after I did and finished opening and putting up cases found 2 of him. He is not in every case though and I think he will be the hardest figure to find of all of the new ones.

Got my Ask Aak today and my Zett Jukassa. Good day overall since I helped a friend find several items he was looking for regarding SW and LOTR.

Found 51, 52, and 53 last night.  Only got the Utapaun warrior which is pretty cool.  Antilles and Zett really suck, so I passed.
