Did you find these in Canada or were they found stateside?  If in Canada, were they on Canadian cardbacks?  Thanks.

Picked up the v2 Pit Droids in the White w/Gray Stripe variety. Need one more of those and two more each of the other two colors in the v2 variety and I can consider the pit droids "done".

Have there been any reports of the TSC Body Sandtrooper w/Black Pauldron and clean paint-op showing up in these new waves that are shipping with the Captain Rex offer on the bubble?

They were all found in Canada :o
It was the first time I saw this case assortment actually at a WM that didnt have a signle figure for 9 months last year...I know the darktrooper case is out at other WMs as well havent been able to track that one down yet.

But yes all the figures were on CDN card with a Fans choice sticker on it in English, French, and Mexican (?) They are only out at Zellers and WM..atleast in my area some other people have been finding them at TRU though as well. These were found in Mississauga Ontario btw. I guess this means we are getting more cases of wave 5 and legends figures instead of Tac 08 wave 1. hope this helps Morgbug!

when I found my sets at TRU I thought the same thing. I really despise shopping Target anymore. they only have me by the balls for exclusives.......

Look at vintage figures, they charged 11.99 while everyone else, except for Kaybee, had there prices around 10.00. Lets not foget the 12.99 for the "exclusives".  One good thing about Target is they do clearence things out fast, I mean I did get the UBP Endor for 12.99 (==)
 I think its Targets attempt to get rid of the collectors.  To be fair to Target, Hasbro did set the retail price at 11.99. That is what they charge over at HTS, it just sucks that I have to shop at WalMart now for my Star Wars stuff.

My Target's rarely get anything in...

Anyway, found (finally) Pax Bonkik x2 and red Naboo schmuck x2...  I'm wrapped up on '07, finally, and almost done with '08's that are out, so I'll be down to just needing evo's and comic sets, and extras.  Not a bad position to be in at the moment.

Picked up the Fett Legacy evolutions set at Target this afternoon.  The fact that Boba is missing his chest insignia is disappointing.  The bantha skull emblem is set too low on his shoulder, too.  Oh well.  Almost picked up the Sith Legacy set.  That Darth Nihilus figure looks pretty nice, but I have no need for Chippendale Maul or Darth Flamehead.

Found Clone in training fatigues and picked up another Holo Vader at Target today. I also looked for Fett legacy, but no luck. I tried using the DPCI # and was told by the manager that "they don't pull high demand collectibles off the shelf". I argued that this item in question was not a high demand collectible as it's not a Target exclusive, but in stores everywhere. She shrugged her shoulders, and said "sorry, that's our policy".
I was in the store 5 times last week and she saw me everyday, I was hoping she'd help.

Picked up the following today:
2x Mouse / Basso Comic 2-pack
2x Lt Jundland / Lt Shan Comic 2-pack
1x Clone Commando / Super Battle Droid Comic 2-pack

My friend also scored for me 2x red sitting Pit Droids, 2x orange sitting Pit Droids and 1x white sitting pit droids. So I'm good with the Saga Legends Pit Droids now.
