I recently acquired the awesome Jawas 2-pack.

I scored most of the new wave of TBS 3.75" figures from Amazon, minus C-3PO.  I came close to getting Threepio through an Amazon Lightning Deal, but the wait list didn't pan out.

Got Gold Leader and wow is he a nice figure.  Deco is great on mine and he's average height instead of that damn Luke sculpt getting reused.  Happy to have him and will pick up more for $10 or less.

Got Gold Leader, Han, Boushh, Chewie and Mosep from a Walmart endcap this afternoon. Passed on Doom and Thorn, the only other two figures they had. There were two of everything, so I at least was able to pick and choose between the "not so bad" and "terrible" paintjobs.

$70 for five figures... :o

I've seen a few of the final black series wave in WalMart clearance aisles, but not at clearance prices. The only one of the troops that I want is another Commander Wolffe in his sandstorm armor from the lost missions episodes.  Oddly enough I see all of the other troopers but not Wolffe.

Remember, Wolffe was the only new Wave 7 figure that wasn't carried into Wave 8 - that's why he's a bit harder to find than Rex or Doom.

Yeah plus he's the most unique fig of the 3 clones and I dare say that didn't hurt his popularity either.

Silly me.  Still, that scene where Plo Koon, Wolffe and the Wolffe Pack troops find the shuttle and lightsaber of Syfo Dyas was one of the coolest moments of the Clone Wars Lost Missions.  And making that TBS Commander Wolffe into a more generic Wolffe Pack member would be a fun customizing project.

Was in Houston for the weekend and on the way back I stopped at a small town Walmart looking for TFA stuff. Nothing there, but I did find Rex and 3PO. Just need to grab the Jawas and INC and I'll be done with the TIE Pilot portion of the line.

At a Wal-Mart that never seemed to put them out back in the summer, I found the part of wave with Mosep in the clearance section for the "clearance price' of $12.83. So I completed my 2015 collecting goal...buying Mosep Binneed*. That was it. Really. It might be the second Star Wars thing I've bought at retail all year. I haven't gotten any Force Awakens items. Wait until I see the movie to see if I care.

*Yeah, i could've gotten online, but I wanted  a decent paint job for my money.

I would've bought the Jawas if I ever saw them. Maybe carbonite Han Solo, too.

Glad to see wave 2 hitting in greater numbers.  I was able to pick up another 3 First Order Stormtroopers the other day.  Right now I've got 5, but I'd certainly like to get more.  But at $13 each?  Those purchases sting a little bit.  And it leaves me hoping that these will sell so well that Hasbro will offer a wide-release Black Series once the deal with Walmart runs out.

I found wave 3 at my local WM today.  The Rey and Finn figs look great, and nice to get a pair of Stormtroopers since I missed out on wave 2.  I like the Poe sculpt, but he and the Trench Hans all had ridiculously bad eye paint jobs.  I may have my 9 year olds hit them with a sharpie to make them look better.   ::)
