yeah, I picked a bad time to start back army building Stormtroopers. I've got four of the Wave 5 one now and am done though. Until the Saga Legends one starts showing up.

I have another possibly dumb question.

Can you only use the UPC on the Vintage figures that have the free Boba Fett sticker on them, or all Vintage figures?

I know you can use Saga Legends and Clone Wars, etc, but I was wondering about the Vintage figures.

I'm running across some crushed, damaged card/bubble figures at Wal-Marts south of Birmingham. Only seen this the last couple of weeks on the new vintage wave figures. For a carded collector like me, it sucks to see someone bend cards and bubbles for fun.
By the way, I would gladly trade up for a minty, carded vintage Jango Fett if anyone local gets an extra one.

I need a yoda from wave 5, but I'm in Huntsville this weekend and found a few wave four figures. I got a mace, Obi, and a super battledroid. I left kit because his card was damaged.

bought a Tie Bomber for $15 over the weekend. I don't usually buy ships but that was too good to pass up.

Only looking for a Jango at this point. Card condition doesn't matter. He and Padme are the only two figures i haven't seen on the pegs so far.

Ive seen a large amount of damaged Vintage cards around here lately, usually done on purpose too it looks like.

I found Yoda, but still need Zam, Jango, and the original card of the Senate Guard. I got the newer one where it shows the whole body. That sucks that people are intentionally damaging the figures. I keep all the vintage figures carded because they look so great. I've got them all the way back to the first VOTC, and the George Lucas Stormtrooper.

Picked up Jango and Kit Fisto at Walmart. Saw Zam, but I left here there hoping I can pick it up later.

LUCKY! good scores.

Jango is the only figure (currently being found at retail) that I need. I have only seen AOTC once.

Hasbro Toy Shop and other etailers are churning out the new figures much faster than retail stores it seems.

Yeah, I was surprised to find that Jango. They only had one of him and Kit, so I grabbed them.

I picked up the Jango Saga Legends last week when I saw him, because I didn't think I'd find the Vintage.


Do any of you collect The Clone Wars figures as well? I saw Cad Bane this morning and keep thinking about picking it up. Those are really good looking figures.

I bought that new Cad Bane a couple weeks ago. I don't collect a lot of the CW stuff but if one looks cool enough, I'll grab it. That figure is a vast improvement over the first one they put out.

I'll probably pick it up this weekend. It is a really good looking figure.

I plan on getting that Nahdar Vebb mail away as well.

Crap, I just realized that was last year's mail away.

I'll probably get that Sgt. Bric though.

Got the Zam I passed on the other day.

Then I stopped at Walgreens, and they had a Saga Legends RA-7 from 2007. Odd to find something that old.

No I haven't been there. Still looking for Jango, Zam, and the closeup pictured senate guard. If anyone happens to spot them would you let me know? I wonder how long until the next wave hits since it's already at online retailers.

AS of right now 10:17am Hasbro Toy Shop has waves 4,5, and 6 available to ship. They are 8.99 plus tax. A great deal if you're tired of driving around. Shipping was 6.80 for all six figures of wave 6 + Jango, Zam, and Senate Guard. So thats only 2 gallons of gasoline. I hope its the Close Up photo of the guard.

Picked up Death Star Luke today at Walmart.

Passed on Utapau because they only had one and his helmet was too discolored. Need him to finish up the wave.

Found $49 AT AT at walmart and of course the thing was useless! The box was smashed so we opened it and the thing was cracked and streased all over the main body and even had some broken hatch points

i got Dagobah Luke and Weequay loose from Ebay yesterday for a great price.

Haven't seen anything new down here in over a month i think.
How does Dagobah Luke look in person?

In the pictures I've seen, he looks like his arms are way too long.

If anybody is still looking for Wave 6, WM in Trussville looked to have about 3 cases worth on the pegs.

I got a Vintage B-Wing from the K-Mart in Irondale. I'm still looking for a few figures from Wave 7. I found Rebel Fleet Trooper and Logray at a Target in Anniston coming home from the 4th of July. Any Y-Wing or other wave 7 activity?

I haven't seen any new figures since I picked up Han and Baris back in the summer.

Noticed last night WM is doing a reset, so hopefully some will start showing up finally and I can catch up.
