I had an experience today that proved that there are still some very nice redshirts aka Target employees out there if you look hard enough and are in the right place at the right time. A redshirt was stocking the pegs at my local Target with Wave 1 and 2, nothing very interesting, just Hans and Lukes. But she kmew me from past visits, said hi, and I didnt even ask her to do this, but she checked her scanner thingy and found a case in the backroom. She went and brought it back, opened it up, and I was allowed to take my pick at all sorts of Wave 3 goodies. I had a tight budget, so I got Stormtrooper, Jawa w/LIN, and CONCEPT CHEWBACCA!!!! Awesome! I guess I was just in the right place at the right time, but that's still a nice story I thought I'd share with you. And btw, all of Wave 3 looks super in person except for ugly Luke(the moisture vaporator's cool though), who was snatched by another guy who seemed like a collector the instant after I started to walk away. Good news for those of you who want to army build the new stormtrooper, I know he'll be tough to find, but if you have the same luck I did, there were three in the case I saw. Good luck guys, this is one of the best waves ever!!  8)

I tore open a couple cases of vintage at WM tonight and got some Snowtroopers and IG-88.  Didn't have the $$$ for the rest so I'm a little depressed this evening at that, but I did get my snowie army going.  There were at least 3 pre-packaged display cases on the pallet ready to go out on an endcap though (was wondering hwere these would end up since there's no peg space for them).

Against my better judgement, I did pick up the Vos Comic pack. They are great sculpts.

Wow, I thought my lucky streak was over after C4, but I guess it's not done quite yet.  Scored the following this morning:

2 x Stormtroopers
1 x Biggs in Academy uniform
2 x Darth Vader
1 x Jawa & LIN droid
1 x Luke Skywalker with moisture vaporator
1 x McQuarrie Chewbacca
1 x VINTAGE Snowtrooper

Also had a really weird purchase at C4.  Some guys were selling stuff out of their hotel rooms, and I scored a couple of Vintage Snowtroopers from the guys in the room across the hall from mine.  And at retail, no less!

Stopped by Target today and they must have had Wave 3 at some point (or only had room for some of it).  I picked up the lone Wave 3 Vader hanging amongst the Wave 2 pegwarmers.

I forgot to mention the improved Stormtrooper helmet, from inside the package it looks a lot better than early pictures.

I hit Target as they were resetting the action figure aisle today and was able to score a few figures.  They had the entire vintage wave, but at $12 a piece, I only picked up 2x Snowtroopers and 1x Hoth Han Solo.  They had two Wave 3 figures on the pegs (Biggs and Vader), so I picked up the Biggs as well (got the Vader at the same store yesterday).  Hopefully there will be more Wave 3 showing up there soon.  They also had the new comic packs the way it looked.

All of the sudden in the last 2 days I picked up most of Wave 3 at Walmart, comic packs at TRU and Walmart, and Vintage Snowtroopers at TRU, Target, and Walmart.

That vintage snowie is a snug fit in the Top 10 Figures of All Time.  Holy cow.
