Found Boil, Freeco w/ Snow Clone and the Tactical Droid at Target this morning.  Left the Tactical Droid but very happy to nab the other two.

Mind giving us the store?

I think he said in another thread that it was a Target.

Yeup, it was a Target.

TOY SPREE!!!

Best day of scores in a long time, and I only had to hit 7 Targets, 4 Walmarts, 2 TRU's and a K-Mart.  ;D

I found the new wave of deluxe TCW vehicles at multiple Targets, and in addition to scoring the 2 I had snagged earlier at TRU (for return purposes), I was able to secure the AT-RT with Boil set. MAN, this is my favorite so far I think. Just love the deco.

Also scored the Battle of Orto Plutonia Battlepack at TRU, another welcome surprise.

Sadly, zero sightings of the Embo wave. That sucks, especially after running into the new Vintage wave multiple times out there. Still, a very good day all in all.

Picked up the Clone Wars/Vintage Swamp Speeder...  which is such an odd name for a vehicle that could function on any myriad of planet surfaces.  But got it at Target, and love it.  Didn't even mind paying full price instead of waiting for a sale.

It's scaled fantastically, sports a very detailed paintjob, the working harnesses are simply awesome, and there are footpegs for extra soldiers to hitch a ride.

The Swamp Speeder's ultimate combat effectiveness may be in doubt, but its awesomeness as a toy is not.

Re-visited the Target where I had accidentally found the entire TCW Wave 4 (Embo wave). Of course, it was all gone. All that was left were assortments of the first 3 waves.

I picked up a complete set of the Freeco/Assault Tank/AT-RT deluxe figures at Target yesterday morning.

I was hoping to stumble on a few of the figures from the latest waves of either CW or Vintage, but alas it was not to be...

Victory is Mine!

Scored the complete TCW Wave Four this morning at Target, only 1 case out, but that's fine for now. I can wait a little on my openers.

I'll share my praise in the dedicated thread, but I am pretty much psyched beyond belief with these guys.

And it's awesome being all caught up again!

The rest of this year should be very manageable for the TCW line, only 1 more wave of figures, 2 mid-size vehicles, and a battlepack. I am completely good with that...

Looks like Monday was a lucky day for both McMetal and myself - I too came across a complete set of the figures from CW 2010 Wave 4 - great wave - can't wait to get a set to open.

My combined Wave 4 & 5 minus Mandalorian came yesterday. Awesome waves.

Still riding the good mojo...found another case of TCW Wave 4 today at lunch, minus Embo.  :(

I did score my Shaak Ti for openers though. Looking forward to tearing into her tonight. (That did not sound right)

Also saw the Wave 2 TCW vehicles for the first time at the same Target where I bagged Shaak Ti. I went ahead and bought all 4 so I could return those overpriced ones I bought at TRU a few weeks back. Although I am very tempted to keep the Swamp Speeder and crack that open too. We'll see.

No sign of TCW Wave 5, but I plan to snoop around a little more tonight and maybe find another Embo to boot.

Scored another AT-RT w/Clonetrooper Boil this morning at a Target.

Unfortunately, I have thus far come up completely empty on finding any more of the Embo wave or the Vos wave.  :(

Lucked out again at lunch and found more remnants of TCW Wave 4 on the pegs at a Target I just hit yesterday. They only had two figures left, but unbelievably, one was Embo.  ;D I literally swore out loud on the aisle I was so surprised.

So at this point I am all good on openers and can take a measured approach on Wave 5. No signs of that so far. I don't think there's anything I need openers of there, but maybe a spare Cato.

Picked up Embo, Boba, Mando and Shaak Ti this afternoon at my local WM.

Edit: Then later tonight I went to an 24-hour WM and scored openers of Boil w/AT-RT, Cold-weather Clone w/Freeco, Embo, Shaak Ti and R4-P17.

Picked up an Orto Plutonia BP at TRU last night. Very happy to finally get Thi-Sen, though I could have done without the other three figures in the box since I had them already.
