TRU in Cary did have the new Jedi Turbo Speeder yesterday, if anybody is interested. Hadn't seen it anywhere yet. There was only 1 that I saw.

I picked up the only Cobra Shock Trooper at Cary Target.

There was a CS Snake Eyes there too so there must have been a wave 3 case in yesterday...

It was probably one of the revision cases. I don't think the Wave 3 cases are shipping. It's a bit of a bummer that the Shockies haven't been packed heavier in the revisions.

The sheer number of Wave 3 Dukes was telling with the snake eyes there...

Either way I was stoked to find him!

I will probably get more if I see them but I'm quite happy with what I have joe-wise until those new Cobra Troopers hit the pegs.

Dukes are in the revision cases too. Storm Shadows would be the best indicators. They aren't in the revisions and they don't sell for [censored].

And I have to ask: how difficult would it have been for Hasbro to give the new Cobra trooper an AK-47 or another real gun? That tiny Dragonuv that has been around since 2007 is awful. The RPG and barbed wire are cool additions, and the figure looks good so I'll try to army build the upcoming trooper.

Most WMs stopped carrying them.

Zebulon still does.

Cary WM had $5 POC figs a few months back and I scored a few I wanted and returned the others to target to make back a lil loot.

They were nice figs too!

Briar Creek WM dropped Joes. They had a good number of them back in February that just disappeared. No shelf space for the figures, but they still had the Alpha vehicles.

Wake Forest WM and the WM by Triangle Town center still have space for Joes. I'm hoping it stays that way.

Thought I posted on Wednesday but I guess I timed out. Anyway, WM in Wake Forest had several cases of Wave 6 Cw on the pegs. I got one complete set and left the rest. Now this info was from Wednesday so don't yell at me if they aren't there tomorrow.

Fuquay WM has remnants of TVC waves 4,5,6...

Wife got the only Senate guard and a Weequay.

There were no Stormies!

There's till a Han, Gen Lando and Fi-Ek.

My kid was freaking out so I really couldn't get every detail from her but I imagine there were a few more of each except Senate Guard. (and no stormies)

Gregorious was kind enough to find me a Commander Wolffe, Anakin, and Ahsoka, so I managed to knock a few things off of my hunting list. Still looking for:

- Star Wars -
Jesse + BARC Speeder
General Lando
Dagobah Luke
AT-RT Driver
Clone Trooper phase 1

- GI Joe -
Low Light
Shadow Tracker

- Transformers - (I don't think these are even out yet...)
Rumble
Warpath
Wheeljack
Windcharger (forgot about this one)

Really need a Shadow Tracker to send to one of my friends in the UK. I might even consider trading a Cobra Shock Trooper for him.

i saw this wave twice at WS WM last friday, but didnt' see the Nikto Jedi or the AT-RT driver. Did see the other 4 (I had already received the wave from HTS.com)

Anyway, its been a crazy 2 months for single, carded figures...5 waves total for me...3 vintage waves and 2 CW waves. Don't know if its ever been like during a non movie opening/product launch window or Xmas time time frame. Hopefully the next waves don't show up till May/June so my wallet can take a break.
But Jesse and his Barc do need to show up!!!!!

I got the Jesse and BARC set as well. It's nice to get something after a long wait.

Finally got a TIE Bomber from tarcanes92! I am really impressed with this ship. The "bomb dropping" mechanics on this are quite clever.

Wonder if Hasbro would ever consider doing a TIE Avenger or a TIE Defender? I am really not a big EU fan, but I am a die-hard nut for the old school X-Wing PC games.

I've had a couple noteworthy PoC and Vintage sightings in the last 48 hours. In the interest of deterring scalpers, PM me what you're looking for and I'll let you know if I saw anything you're after.

Also, I'm pretty confident retail stores here will not see the last few Transformers before Dark of the Moon's line that I want, so if there is anybody that's buying by the case online and looking to unload some extras, please let me know.

Brier Creek Wal-Mart had the R5D4 Vintage wave - including a few Stormtroopers.

Really, what's up with Target? They've had the same bare-shelved pegwarmers since before Christmas.

These distribution probs are going to kill this Vintage line.

I picked up 3 of the troopers (left one), thanks so much for the heads up! I also picked up an R5D4 as i hadn't found one yet in nice condition.

Opened one of the troopers, and i like it alot. Is there a trooper from the recent past that's considered superior to this one? IF so, please let me knwo as i really like this one.

Yeah the VOTC mold...

THe same from the TLC BAD line.

It will be out in Saga Legends later this year.

The only thing the vintage fig has over him is bj hips and they aren't even that well executed.

in my opinion

But... I own four of the new vintage guys for a few extra poses.

I grabbed the one w3 Ultimate Snake Eyes that was left because I felt like a fool for leaving it when I grabbed the shocks.

To be fair the vintage trooper had a dragonov where the vintage officer had an ak back in he day..
