Found the Walmart exclusive figure & vehicle sets this morning. And yes, the packages do have imagery of the cancelled sets

Picked up an extra Armored Savage Opress and Chewbacca if anyone needs them.

Also my first Even Piel which I might also part with.  Gotta compare him to the one we got with the Council 2 packs.  I don't need more than one Even Piel figure.

Got to ride the new Star Tours at Hollywood Studios today...and surprise, found Chewie and Plo's R series in the gift shop on the way off the ride. Now I just need to find Armored Savage and I am set.

Hells yeah, picked up both Walmart exclusive Deluxe sets at lunchtime today!

Super-psyched to have these, and I'll never be ungrateful for new product, but they sure seem like kind of a sloppy effort. I picked through 10 of these things to find 2 with half decent paint apps. Buzz in particular seemed a little error prone. Might want to inspect them before choosing.

But this was a great find, and likely the last store purchase for 2011, unless those MIA Walmart DVD sets show up.

Woot!

Ditto.. It was fun to actually see something new on the wal-mart pegs. I have to think these were meant for black Friday, but the cover up stickers probably caused a delay. Happy to have it before the holidays.

A local buddy bought me Seripas and gave me him over the weekend (Thanks Dave!), and he's quite slick.  Well articulated, realistic looking enough...  His rifle's kind of a waste because he cannot hold it really, but he's still a cool figure and has the slick hidden weaponry.  I'm glad to have him in my realistic collection chilling with Embo now.

I saw a Riot Control Clone Trooper on the pegs today at TRU for the first time in months. They had Barriss, Eeth Koth, etc too. Also had a fresh case of Wave 12, so they are cranking through some product evidently.

Saw some $12.99 Clone Trooper and Droids BP's at TJ Maxx. Also a Cad Bane Deluxe set for $9.99. Pass on both.

I'd have been all over that battle pack.

I didn't find anything Star Wars action figure related at TJ Maxx yesterday, besides those Force Battlers that they made to fail.

$4.99 Spiderman figures...if anyone cares. The venom with no articulation below his thighs....meh, and Doc Ock. I'll wait for clearance or never.

Just picked up my second openers of the WalMart Dlx sets.

So I'm done with those now.

Just need: the DVD 2packs (if they come out) and the Mando Gunship (x2) and if I'm lucky enough to be like McMetal and stumble on one more Riot Control Clonetrooper, I'll be good with the SotDS stuff...

I can never remember where stuff like this goes, but the Bomb Squad Clone from next years battle pack in on ebay.

I actually found two un-opened cases with the Riot Control Clone Trooper last night at TRU. I snagged a Riot dude plus a Barriss for my daughter. PM me if you're interested in this thing, otherwise I will probably just end up returning him. Cheers!

Saw the Seripas wave for the first time in its entirety, and in some relative bulk, at a local Target this weekend.

My Target has been getting Seripas cases pretty much twice a week.  There's like three of him sitting there now.  I wish they'd get the Chewie wave more, because I'd like to get more of him.

Saw more Seripas too...

I've said it before but the "secondary" guys are rare for about 3 seconds till the wave gets full distribution.  Once that happens, it proves what Hasbro has said about the Clone Wars line i'm afraid, and kinda emphasizes why they're going TPM3D and not CW in 2012.
