Since we're way over the limit in the last thread...I figured I'd take one for the team and start fresh....I passed on the WM 3 packs yesterday. Had them all the way up to the checkout lane but they just didn't seem worth $30. The green eyed stormtroopers looked cheesy IMO.

Still on the hunt for Legacy 3 - mainly the Yaddle/Evan 2-pack, & possibly a Jodo. I've seen a couple of leftover CW2 figs laying about, mostly SBDs & Oddball, and a lot of the "clean" Rex & clone figs. Nothing else really.

Gotta say - the SBD & Ahsoka figs are very cool though.

no on the Joe's but Medford Target brought me out a fresh case of CW W2... left an Ahsoka & 2 Super Battle Droids. Bought the rest.

VARIANT ALERT... the standard clones in this case were clean deco as opposed to the dirty deco wave 1. I was tempted, but $8.50... I just blew $110 on a Yamato v2.0 1/60 scale Roy Fokker VF-1S (simply amazing BTW) so

anyone find the latest joe wave (mutt, wraith, etc)?
Yes, but it was Target so you wouldnt buy them anyway.
ok, which target did you find them @?
Westbury, I asked a guy if they could bring some out and he brought out 3 cases, 2 wave 6 '08 (wave 10) and 1 revision case with the original Snake Eyes in it. I left the revision case but bought all the new figures including the Bats (1 per case).

yeah, I actually got 2 of them. 1 for me and 1 for a fellow boardie here but my car broke down and it cost over $1000 to fix it. I REALLY wanted this figure but need the cash more right now
I pray I find one for my collection and a 2nd for his but I kind of doubt it. I was so damn excited about my find only to get home and find out about the car! Always my luck!

Thanks, I appreciate it. The car is all fixed now but the credit card bill is going to be a killer!

if you find a few more you can pay off your bill!
No, no. If I find anymore I'm keeping one and giving the other to the guy on here that helps me ALL the time. It was a very hard decision to sell them and I REALLY didnt want to do it. I even went around to all the other Targets in driving distance to see if they had any. The stores that did bring them out were all revision cases! I will keep looking though. I heard these were hitting Walmarts too but with the lack of them on E-Bay I kind of doubt it.

It's not as bad as I thought it would be, from everything I've heard.
The base is a pretty thin plastic but it's certainly thicker than, say, a carded figure's bubble.
The building itself is actually real nice, normally thick and sturdy plastic like a playset is made.
It fits snug into the base and lifts out to reveal the blue kitchen table, which is attached to the base.
The moisture vaporator is nice.
3 figures I already have (maybe even worse paint jobs this time) - but you can always use another sandtrooper!
No articulation on the womprat, but so what?
I wasn't going to get this except that I had a $20 gift card from purchasing the force unleashed, ps3, when it came out; so $30 seemed more reasonable.
Now, I would say I like the building itself enough to have spent the $50 anyway.
It's so iconic and TRU is the only game in town.
I did notice what seems like two different paint apps.
Some buildings were almost white with brownish/red marks all over the dome, some were much more tan/yellowish with almost no hints of brown/red on the dome.
I didn't research but I went with the latter, felt a little more movie accurate. (after much comparison in the store - empolyees probably think I'm crazy!)
Also, the brown/red "weathered" paint streaks at the bottom of the building ranged from pretty good on some to others that looked like they were done with a bad paint brush; so you may want to decide if you're gonna buy, so you can do so while there are several to choose from on the shelf.
Hope this helped!

Man, that stinks. Have to say, though, I've considered the same thing, even just for lack of space to display stuff. I'll try and think if there's anything I'm missing that you might have.

Thanks! I havent had a score like this in a long time. its always a hit or miss with garage sales. most people are throwing thier stuff on ebay instead of sellin them off at garage sales.
