I picked up a couple Jyn's for custom fodder, an Ackbar, an Ahsoka...  I'm gonna bide my time on Finn's, Han, Leia...  those are in mass quantity.  Wish they had POe.  I'd have gone nutty buying that.

I managed to pick up a couple of First Order Stormtroopers today.  Glad to see those at the $5.84 price point,  although I would gladly trade them Scarif Stormtroopers.

I haven't seen those in a while.  I was happy to have some Jyn's available but wish there were a mountain of Scarrif Troopers and Death Troopers of course. 

Can't say I'm all boned up over royal guards like some people are.  I didn't realize it was a 3.75" representation of Christ.  It's nice and all, but I saw ample of them routinely this past year.  I'm pretty content on him now.

Now just get those Rogue One Troopers out in absurd numbers since the Scarrif never even hit here.  That whole 2nd wave was non-existent.

I personally like the Royal Guard quite a bit.  The character does effectively nothing in the films except stand there.... and get taken out in the blink of an eye by Yoda in ROTS.  But they're cool to army build for that ROTJ Emporer's arrival diorama.  I think the EU details that Hasbro worked into the figure are also very cool if you're a Crimson Empire fan, right down to the Kir Kanos likeness.

But I agree... I would absolutely LOVE to find Scarif Stormtroopers in abundance.  Especially with this current markdown.  I already got my fill on the Deathtroopers.  I think I got 6 and that was enough for me.  They're unique to ROGUE ONE and they deployed in very small units, so I don't feel the need to go all out with army building those.  But the Scarif Troopers are another deal.  And FWIW, I never saw that wave in the wild.  I got mine online from Walmart.com.

Found a First Order Stormtrooper for under $6 and got him. Never had one until now, wasn't up for paying $13 for the bad paint ops I saw over a year ago. Decent figure...but suffer that inability to sit like a human.  And yeah, the eye paint is a bit off on mine.

Strange all the Ackbar's sold weeks ago. Leia, Han, Finn and Lando are mostly what's left. One cruddy Vader.

I know they are controversial, but I ordered a set of 5 Titanium Black Series figures from ToysRUs.com

I haven't had much luck finding ANYTHING lately, so might as well cross something off the list easily...

Seeing people finding the last wave of RO figs again and at $6.  It's killing me.  At this point I'd just like ONE Scarrif Trooper haha.  I really hope a flood gate of these opens but man I'm skeptical.  And now repacks?  Ugh.

I keep holding out hope too but my stores either haven't stocked since Force Friday or are clogged with Finn, Endor Han, and General Leia. I only ever saw the Ackbar/Lando repack wave at an out of town Walmart.
