Target at Triangle Towne Center had the exclusive Geonosis 2-packs (Waxer and Battle Droid, and Special Ops Clone Trooper and Drone). I was able to use a $5 Clone Cash coupon on them.

Well, I went to Garner Target to see if that Mace figure was there. Somebody has swapped out the figure with the TAC Mace and a random unlit hilt.

The only other Vintage figure more recent than the ROTJ wave there was the SBD, which I think was actually the proper one, but I didn't check too closely.

I thought he looked a little off but woah!

I wish I had gotten a pic of him.

Cary Walmart must have restocked since you were there last, OdinsDad, as there were plenty of most of wave 5 there this evening. No AOTC figures, though. That one TIE Bomber is still full price.

Cary TRU had a bunch of new stuff from various lines today, but nothing Star Wars. Joes and TFs caught my eye in particular.

Shadow Tracker/Destro/Low Light/Skydive. I got the first two and a friend of mine got the latter two. At most there is one of each left there now except Shadow Tracker (I did not buy both, I only got one and someone else got the other while I was there. The full case was on the pegs when I arrived). They also randomly had the Rise of Cobra wave with Paris Pursuit Baroness, Nano Viper, Dr. Rex (white coat), etc., in it.

From POC there were 2 skydives, a beachhead and storm shadow this morning. If I had any hair I'd pull it all out.

Nothing at xroads or apex BC targets either.

Brier Creek WM finally had Wave 5 (mixed). Cards were pretty curved. Left plenty. Prices are up to $9 now at Wal-Mart. Quickly reaching my breaking point between distribution issues, lack of interesting characters, and price.

No signs of Vintage 4 or 5 at either Glenwood Target.

Actually I didn't realize Stormies were in the wave; looking at the cardbacks now though, clearly they are. So that means either none were there or I totally looked over them, thinking they were part of an older wave.

So, I don't know if there are/were any there or not

I saw the AOTC wave at Cary Walmart today, and got Mace. I might have gotten more, but not at nearly $9 apiece. Mace is the main one I wanted, though!

Found AOTC wave at Garner Target 2 days ago passed on all of them. Also found some remnants of AOTC at Cary Walmart (minus Mace). I passed on those also as i only pickup OT figures. I did find just the New Jedi Luke & one Han Solo from Wave 5 and picked those up based on a recommendation here. Thanks to StarScream for pointing that out, Good luck hunting everyone, and thanks for sharing your finds, it's really helpful.

Still looking for Wave 5 to get Luke and a couple Storm Troopers.

Did you check Cary TRU? I'd call them.

It's probably too late but they had three sets of lowlight/ST when I snagged my shadow tracker last week.

I'll keep my eye out tue/thurs next week. I'm looking for the rev case with shock troopers so bet your butt I will pick up ST for you if I find another.

I'm in the triad, so Cary is a little too far for me.

I have one extra shock trooper. HTS.com sent me 2 instead of the 1 that I ordered. I'll keep an eye out for a second.

Condition of the card doesn't matter. As long as the file card is in decent shape (not discolored or pieces torn off) and nothing is wrong with the figure...

Cary WM has an endcap with new CW figs.

I scored Wolffe, El-Les, the only Aqua Droid and left all the Ahsokas anybody could ever want there.

Just curious - were they actually on an endcap when you were at Walmart? I was there earlier today and they had a bunch of Legends and Clone Wars figures (including most of the ones you mention) in those long cardboard trays stacked up next to where the Thor stuff is getting put out. I was hoping to see the Transformers endcap a lot of people have reported finding around the country and am wondering if they're in the process of resetting a bunch of endcaps there.
