I picked up a TIE Pilot this evening.  K-Mart comes through again, this time with my first sighting of wave 8 at any retailer so far...

No Endor Rebel anywhere, someone got him before me, but all the rest were there.  Tempted on Leia but passed.  Tough to justify $10 for a card.

I've been seeing Wave 8 at nearly every Target and WM near me ever since Thanksgiving. Especially Wal-Mart, only once at Target to be specific. Kinda weird. I'm seeing a lot of Rebels too, which is surprising. The hardest to find are Leia and the TIE Pilot.

We're seriously getting Wave 5 quantities of this wave at Wal-Mart... hopefully Wave 9 reappears at some point because I'd like to get a few more Echo Base troops.

I've been able to pick up an opener TIE pilot and Revenge Rebel Commando. First time I've gotten the mail in forms for the proto-Boba.

Finished off the revenge set thanks to Target. I think I'm done until 2012 clearances start.

Was able to pick up the remaining revenge and return cards to finish off each set. Should upgrade my revenge Leia though.

Found a solitary Bastila Shan on the pegs at Walmart last night, so I felt compelled to buy her for my office display.

She's the one I can never find.  I know locals need her, so I keep looking when I'm out, and she's been the only one that I saw only like three times, and now I don't see her at all.  Wish I'd picked up extras, but I figured she'd actually not do this well because she's not that well done (headsculpt bugs me... a lot).  Go figure.  Of course since WM and Target simply aren't stocking new vintage figures, it could be that the supply's so short and only at one retailer anyway, that they're just all selling out fast, haha.

A local buddy (Thanks Scott) got me a black Endor Rebel variant.  Cool of my buddy to do that for me, and it crosses that off my list.  :)  With Seripas done, I'm basically just looking for army builder Rebel Fleet Trooeprs and Echo Base Rebels till 2012 stuff.

Found a fair ammount of REVENGE variant figures today.  Scored Slave Leia, ROTJ Boba Fett, Endor Rebel variants as well as another Rebel Fleet Trooper to add to the ranks.

Found Wave 8 and even Wave 7 restocked at K-Mart locally tonight.  I'm surprised at the Wave 7 restock...  Wave 8, it's been hitting relatively steady.  Why can't it be Wave 9 though?  *sigh*

Target TPM wave has arrived here, just got the head's up from another local collector. Luckily there is nothing in this wave I have the slightest interest in, so money saved.

I got my Proto-Boba mail-away sometime Monday or Tuesday.

Scored some AOTC wave TVC at 5 Below.  $5 each for TVC Senate Guards, Mace Windu & Super Battle Droids?  Sounds good to me.

I'd just checked 5 Below the other day for those and not seen them so I'll have to hit them up again this weekend. I  think they're open Saturday or Friday night at least.

Yeah, last week in my area they were hitting at TJ Maxx and Marshalls...  looks like they already sold through at each store, which seemed to get in 3-4 cases each.  Damn good price for some very good figures!

Indeed!  These prices are pretty tough to pass on.  So far I've only see figures from the AOTC & ROTS waves at 5 Below.

Which ROTS figures did you see past Grievous?
