I'm part of a Star Wars Collecting group on the "Discord" app, and there's a guy who alerts everyone when rare stuff is in stock on any of the major sites. Jaina sold out in like 5 minutes. I'm lucky I was at a PC when I was!

I doubt she'd be carried forward, but stranger things have happened.

I use the Amazon app on my iPhone, and I use wishlists to keep track of some of the new Star Wars items that I'm looking out for.  Amazon has had two separate listings for the TBS 6" Jaina Solo for some time, so I kept an eye on both of them.  They've even upgraded the Amazon app so that you can now browse items on your wishlist at the bottom of the page as soon as you launch the app.

When Jaina popped up as available for $19.99 earlier this week I jumped on it!  The delivery date is a little longer away than I would normally accept for something being offered at that Amazon Prime price point.  But considering how I have only seen the other figures in this wave in the wild and not Jaina?  I decided to go for what is essentially a pre-order.  But this figure is reminding me of the craze to get Darth Revan all over again.

EE just shipped my Jaina Solo. She so should have been Rey in TFA.

I just placed an order yesterday for her.

If people are still looking for Jaina, she is in stock at EE.  I would jump on this now as I think this is going to be one of those waves that comes and goes (and has already gone) at retail.

Picked up a Rey with base set from the last K-Mart which is closing down soon. I paid $11.50 which isn't great but they only had 3 left and I don't get to that part of town much. I like the idea of having extra rocks for my display.

Also grabbed another R1 3-pack from Target for $17.98 since these have started to disappear from most of the stores around here.

Found Island Rey and DJ at Walmart over lunch today while running a toy blitzkrieg on $5 SWB 6" figures. Sadly, they both rang up at full price but I didn't have the time or energy to quibble about it. No sign of Rex or even any of the repacks.

Also picked up Maz, Kylo, new Poe, FO Stormy, Praetorian Guard, Finn in FO disguise, Gen Leia, ESB Snowtrooper, 2x AT-AT Drivers, and a couple others I don't remember offhand, all for $5 each. Best deal ever!  ;D

Do tell on that pricing!  Also, if you’d be willing to hook a brother up on a $5 Snowtrooper...

The $5 Walmart sales are a joke in my area. I spent an embarrassing amount of time searching a bunch of stores this afternoon and the only figures stores had in stock were Jyn, Cassian, and Zuvio. Dozens and dozens of them. Mind you that 75% of these stores had none of those figures a week ago, and were chock full of Maz, Leia, TLJ Poe, TLJ Finn, and TLJ Kylo. It's like I was time warped back to a year ago.

I went pretty nuts over the weekend with the Walmart thing, bought at least $400 worth of toys for a fraction of that. Interestingly I ended up with doubles of just about everything. New Poe, Kylo, Gen Leia, Finn in Disguise, Praetorian Guards (x3), At-At Driver, Snowtrooper, even found a couple of old Resistance Troopers at one store.

Good times.

Now have two extra complete boxed sets of all the TLJ figures except for Snoke and the exclusives. Thanks Walmart!

Solely out of curiosity, what do you do with them?

All kinds of things, I'm making a custom Rose in Imperial disguise figure for example. I'm currently army building the Praetorian guards til I have 8 total I can display with Snoke and his throne. I also use them in trades with other collectors, or to help me sell other lots of stuff I have listed online. For $5 a pop I can find a lot of value.

I snagged an extra 6" Phasma at Target today for $2.96.  No idea what I will do with her, but I don't think there's any 6" figure I can pass up for $3.

I'm not sure I'm ever going to see Rex and Rey (Island Journey) at retail and finally bought them off EE.com (with the JD link).  Not the cheapest option, but I'm not comfortable waiting on these two.

I found the DJ wave at two different Walmarts yesterday, or at least remnants. I managed to score Rex which I was very happy about. Also grabbed another DJ, Island Rey, FO Stormtrooper, and 2 Royal Guards. Because they were not yet in the system, they let me have them all for $5 each, which was also nice.  ;D

Just need that exclusive Kylo and I'm all caught up.
