Here is my haul for the week...

1x 2012 VC77 Ratts Tyerell & Pit Droid
7x 2012 VC78 Battle Droid
1x 2012 VC79 Darth Sidious
2x 2012 VC80 Anakin Skywalker (Jedi Padawan)
1x 2012 VC81 Ben Quadrinaros & Pit Droid
2x 2012 VC82 Daultay Dofine
2x 2012 VC83 Naboo Royal Guard
1x 2012 VC84 Queen Amidala
1x 2012 VC85 Quinlan Vos
1x 2012 VC86 Darth Maul
1x TRU Pod Racer Pack
1x WM Mos Espa Arena BP
1x WM royal Starship Droids
2x Trade Fed Tank

I was able to get some TRU sale deals so that makes army building easier. I love the new BD it smokes the olders ones and is way more accurate. This figure reminds me of the VC45 Clone, some collectors don't want to let go of the older ones because they are used to them and invested heavily. Its very screen accurate. Also the WM BP's are pretty nice.

I ordered two cases of the deleted scene figures and I love the case pack, it has all of the extra of the TPM wave I want. Now I just have to continue to hit WM for the Vulture Droid and the exclsuive wave and I am done with store hunts for a very long time....

The TRU sale definitely made this week's purchases a lot easier to deal with.  I was able to price adjust my purchase from Saturday, and got the remainder of the new figures today.  Here's my TVC haul:

___  VC75 - Qui-Gon Jinn
___  VC76 - Obi-Wan Kenobi
___  VC77 - Ratts Tyerell & Pit Droid
___  VC78 - Battle Droid X 3
___  VC79 - Darth Sidious
___  VC80 - Anakin Skywalker (Padawan)
___  VC81 - Ben Quadinaros & Otoga 222 droid
___  VC82 - Daultay Dofine
___  VC83 - Naboo Royal Guard X 3
___  VC84 - Queen Amidala (post senate)
___  VC85 - Quinlan Vos
___  VC86 - Darth Maul
___  Super Vulture Droid (WalMart Exclusive)
___  Dewback (WalMart Exclusive)


Plus, when I got to the register tonight the TRU employee surprised me with even MORE savings than just the 3 for 2 deal.  He had a coupon for $10 off for Hasbro Star Wars purchases.

I've heard from more than a few people that NOTHING is being found, haha.  WM still isn't putting out stuff, nor is Target...  Vintage in particular is non-existant around here too.  Kind of funny.  Hard street dates mean absolutely nothing in both directions I guess.

Exactly. I just went to Walmart and Target. Neither one put stuff out! All they had was some MH and CW stuff. Nothing else. Lots of empty pegs.

TRU has been clutch though.  I went to a few of them between NY and PA and they all had the front display set up and all were very well stocked.  Found every single thing I wanted.  Buy 2 get 1 Free sale.  BOGO hasbro coupons.

When it's all said and done, this is the cheapest wave by far in like 2-3 years, and meanwhile we all thought we were screwed with the price hike.

What a dramatic turn of events.  $5 vintage figures until mid-March.

x1 TPM Vintage Dofine (up to x3, great figure to make other "cool" Senators with)
x1 Sidious
x1 Black Rebel Commando (Not much left, he was the best choice.)

Went back to the TRU with my receipt and cardbacks from all of the Vintage figures I bought on Saturday, got them to refund me 1/3 of my purchase thanks to the B2GO sale.

Picked up two more Battledroids and a Naboo Soldier to take advantage of the sale as well...

$10/figure sucks

$7/figure is much better - like where it should be...

I have yet to see any of the new vintage stuff. All I see is the CW and MH stuff. I went to Target and picked up a Defend Kamino battle pack for $9.98. All the old star wars stock is half off. The shuttle is $39.98.

I ordered the PM wave off tru.com since they have every one there. I figure with the lack of stores in the Big Apple, this was the best way to go.

I was able to snag more figs wityh the TRU sale:
x10 BD's
x2 Naboo RG

Up to x20 BD's and will stop around 30-40. Not sure how many Naboo guards but 8 seems right. I wish TRU would have more sales like this it makes army building much easier.

Picked up the Imperial set with Imperial Commander (Needa), Dengar and At-At Driver for $9.88.

Needa's eyebrows are redder than the original and his hat's button is silver instead of metallic light blue. Rebel Trooper's head swaps with his okay...Needa's head's a little tight on rebel trooper's body.

Never had the Dengar before,  why is he so hard to stand up?

At-At Driver....you know, his head looks cool on the vintage Jedi Knight Luke's body.  I still dislike the painted driver helmet compared to the 2006's molded white version.
