How are you guys finding all these Jedi Temple Guards?  I haven't seen a single one.

I have only seen them in the wild one time, at a Wal-mart.  It would help to have stores like Kroger around, but my area just has Target and a few scattered Walmarts.

I've only found them once, and that was first thing in the morning. 

I've felt the same way about Chopper.  That figure is so scarce that I wound  up caving and buying one on Amazon for more than I want to spend.  But when I thou about the extra cost online versus the gas money that was getting burned up in my search?   It was time to cut my losses and buy Chopper online.

Got my Troop Transport from HTS as well and I have to say I'm a little underwhelmed. It's cool in a nostalgic way, but not in any other.

Picked up a slew of Rebels figures from Target today for $2.98 a pop. I have no idea what they are doing, but this is a great deal.

I picked up a couple of Jedi Temple Guards today.  This figure really is one of the bright points in this 5POA landscape.

Target near me sold out of Rebels/Legends...if they ever had any to begin with, which I doubt.
Saw two packs at Wal-Mart with the Leia/Stormtrooper Luke and Hoth 2 packs, both Heras were awful. One had a molding scar on her face. The other looked like a victim of domestic abuse. Wasn't that interested in the other packs.

Saw this at JTA
This is what Hasbro gets when they pack reissued figures with new ones.

My, Ezra, how you've grown!  :P

Kohls.com has Sabine, Cikatro and the wookiees for $13.49 each. Unfortunately, since they are not online exclusives, you can not use the 20% code HASBROSW20 that expires May 10th.

That repack stuff is equal parts hilarious and sad.  Nice that they offered up a clone trooper versus something worse I guess.   ;D

Picked up another Inquisitor.  At only $1.78 on clearance it was basically a steal!

I noticed Target was selling the 20" Jakks Pacific Zeb through their eBay store so I went ahead and picked him up. That thing has been totally MIA at stores.

Now if Hasbro would just put out that Deluxe Hero Series version with the helmet, I would be good to go.

I wandered into the Disney Store today, which I've been doing once a week or so for months and miraculously found Chopper.  I've been looking since December.  I nearly paid $35 or $40 for one a few short weeks ago.  $10 seemed like a steal.

Meijers has put Rebels and Mission packs on clearance, $4.49 and $7.49, plus the 12" were...something...I cannot remember.  I saw the wookie 2-pack, pilot luke and skiff Lando. I almost got the wookie set.

Yesterday Night I bought Luke Skywalker SL22. Seems is the rarest figure from its wave.

I like the sculpt, cause when facing it with 6 inches TBS Luke pilot, it looks as the mold has sinked into 3.75
for accuracy of the Star Wars Rebels line.
