Most stores around here have absolutely nothing new aside from exclusives. Having said that, Golf Mill TRU has had new figures lately. Nowhere else I have been to does though.

Yeah I don't get it- and the pegs are mostly empty at many of them. It's not like they are sitting on piles and piles of pegwarmers. They seem to just not be getting any - or when they are getting new ones they are disappearing immediately. That was what I noticed at a target off Lake-Cook road when they got the Malgus wave, which the Super Target in South Elgin also got - but now nothing (south elgin still has the realistic clone wars anakin hanging on the pegs if anyone needs it).

I saw one lone sandtrooper at Walmart today, the new one, all the old crap they've had for the last 6 months, but one new sandtrooper, lol. Also saw the new CW Rex and A. Secura, not sure how "new" they were.

I finally scored Fox yesterday. I think I am done with retail Star Wars stuff for the year. In fact, if I can find bag head Spidey and the FF variant box set, I think I am done with all toy line hunting at retail this year!!!!

Perhaps most frustrating to me so far has been the BOGO deal at TRU. It's a great deal, but the only figures the TRU's I visit regularly have had are the Qui-gon and obi-wan vintage I already have more than one of, and the odd naboo guard or podracer..

Makes me want to stand in the aisle and let a bellowing end of EP 3 Vader "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!"

I think that might get me banned for life from the South Elgin TRU though.

Got beeping leia and the sandtrooper on lost line cards at south Elgin tru tonight. Yay!
I still haven't seen even a leftover of the Tarkin wave which makes me a little concerned.
