Thanks folks! It's good to be back. This time I'll try and stay under the radar.

Hey, now that I'm thinking about it, do you happen to have a loose Kyle Katarn (one with good paint apps)? And a carded Commander Cody? I have yet to see either of these anywhere. Let me know?
Are you talking about the Kyle from the comic 2-pack or the expanded universe version? I have both.

That Commander Cody is like non-existent right now. I saw two back when WMs were getting those SW cubes. None since. I will keep an eye out though.

If anyone sees the Target exclusive GI Joe Rhino and Rockslide Then & Now set at 75% off, lmk. I'm looking to get a few of each. Thanks in advance!

The one from the comic pack. I don't care about the Vong since I don't even really know what it is.

I keep seeing the RHINO for half off, but no more than that. I'll continue to look.

Any chance you've seen the movie version War Machine from Iron Man 2? I've seen 2 of them, but both of them had such sloppy paint apps that I left them.

Are you looking for the one with red circle or blue circle? I think the blue is a variant.

Both. I just found a blue one, but I think I'll open it just for fun.

Also, do you have Clone Wars Commander Bly? I have yet to find any new Clone Wars figures anywhere.

No luck on Commander Bly either. I may be putting in an order with Hasbro soon. Depends on if I can find enough to order.

Did you want the red version War Machine carded? Otherwise, I have one I opened to check it out.

The GI Joe Rhino was marked at $25ish at Cary Target today. Sorry - I don't know what the original price was so I don't know if that's a good deal for you or not!

The Rhino started at $50. Hoping they will hit $12.50 soon.

Well if that is the case, I see no reason to order direct from Hasbro when it concerns SW figures. Saving $0.71 is not that big of a deal.

I saw the ROTJ speeder bike at TRU yesterday in Cary. I think there were two of them on the pegs.
So why has Hasbro stuck with this mold? What was wrong with the one with proper handle bars?

If anyone has seen either Commander Cody (BD 44) from the Revenge Wave or the Assault on Ryloth Target exclusive pack, please let me know, or if you own an extra of both and would be interested in a trade, I have an unopened AT-ST (Walmart exclusive). Just send me a PM. Thanks.

That Commander Cody was not that easy to find from what I remember, but there may still be some floating around here.

Finally saw ROTS rev remnants at TRU at Crossroads in Cary. Someone had already been through and grabbed the Cody (dam!) but I grabbed IG and the Stormie.

Thanks God this wave is showing up there finally.

About FOUR of each biker scout/bike and STAP/BD exclusives left as well.

Haha...I saw the Concept IG-88 there yesterday and did a double take. I was shocked to actually see something different on the pegs.

most have been a busy day because I was there as well. Now I'm looking for a matchstick since my 5 yr old got into my stash and helped himself to one.

Target in Cary had some Clone Wars figures I don't remember seeing before. They had the Vebb mail-away stickers on the bubbles. I think there was a clone commander, Anakin with cold weather gear, and a couple others. I honestly haven't paid enough attention to Clone Wars to know how recently released these are.

If it's this one: Cody on HTS
... and you still have it, I might be interested in buying it from you. Please let me know? I have yet to see him anywhere.

they were first sighted about 2 months ago, and only in the last few weeks have they become the norm to see them on the pegs.

Well what do you know? I found Cody today at Wal-Mart in Durham. Oddly enough, he and Commander Bacara were the only ones left of that whole wave. They also had plenty of the exclusive comic packs, but I passed. That damned AT-ST is still ringing up full price, though. I'd buy it right now if I could get it for less than $30.

Get a copy of the AT-ST's UPC code. Scan it at your local Wal-Marts until you find one that has it on clearance. Then buy the AT-ST for full price and do a return/rebuy at the one that has it on clearance. It might not work, but is worth a try.

Yeah, that thought crossed my mind too. However, not a single Wal-Mart in the Raleigh area has marked them down, much less even have them at all to start with. Only one I know of was Brier Creek - I never saw a single AT-ST at any other nearby store aside from the store in Durham.

Found TCW Darth Sidious and TX-20 at Super Target in Concord. Completes 2010 wave 2 for me, now. Saw the WM Comic Packs at Belmont Abbey WM, but passed on those.

Haven't seen any of that wave yet. As far as I know, that is the last wave anyone has info on.

Also, is the WM wave the last of the comic packs released retail? I thought the rest were exclusives.

And when will this be out? I thought I saw that the new "vintage" figures will come out in August. Are these out before then? I would like the Jedi Pack.

Disregard. I just bought the whole wave at starwarsshop.com

Picked up 3x EE Exclusive Joker Squad from the White Oak Ross yesterday. That's a heck of a buy at $15.

Any of you guys making the trip to O-Town for C5?

I got a Clone Wars Y-Wing for $25 tonight at Wal-Mart on New Bern in Raleigh! A few days it scanned at $45, and tonight at $30. I still had a $5 off coupon that I'd been dragging around since before Christmas, so that made it a deal I couldn't pass up.
