Went to Target this morning before work and picked up VOTC Lando and 3PO on sale (5.96 ea) and 2 of the cups (Hoth Luke and Ani) which were also on clearance.

Got cut from work early, so I stopped at TRU on way home. Found the entire Cantina wave (Feltipern, Myo, and Dannik). Score! TRU was the only place where VOTC was not yet on sale (I haven't checked KB). They had a Playskool GH Jango and Obi I almost bought.

My Wm had a TON of the Galactic Heroes, including the BH sets. I broke down and bought the 3 BH sets.

They also had an OTC Sandtrooper, and it looked like crap. The paint deco was terrible.

My local TRU had a bunch of the 12" Obi, Jawa, and Garindan (no Yoda's though). Other then VOTC there were no 4" fig's.

Got my Insider Wed or Thurs. It's nice that I recieve it pretty much when they say they're mailing it out, as opposed to a couple weeks later.

My WM had 1 CW Obi on the peg, and 2 different versions of OTC Vader. There wasn't too much else. They had plan-a-grams up for a new set (SW had already been moved).

It looks like about 10 to 12 people read this... maybe one of you might be able to help me out. I'm lokoing for the Target exclusive cups. I have Ani and Luke. I'd like to have the others, but only for the clearance price of $2-3 each. If any of you see it I can Paypal money, or send MO. Thanks!

A couple of days ago I found the Perview wave at WM, nicely priced at 5.88. One of the few times i'm thankful WM is around.

The fig's look awesome! And the articulation is very good - knees, wrists, elbows, ball jointed shoulders! And te fig's can stand on their own. I didn't think that Greivous would stand, but he did. I don't mind paying an additional dollar for this kind of fig, but an additional 2 or 3 is out of the question.

At some point early last week I found the Preview Ani's Jedi Starfighter at TRU for $20. I saw they had a section set up for it on a center section.

Some time last week or so I recieved an email from Code 3 with an offer for the Skywalker Ranch Fire Truck for $100. I went ahead and ordered it, a cover for it, and a cover for my Slave 1, which I didn't yet have. Today the Slave 1 cover and the SkyRanch Truck came, the other cover is on backorder.

My Chrome jango bust came today. Pretty nice looking! The antenna was broken though, which was annoying. Luckily, they had a hole where it fits, so I can just get some crazy glue and get it back on there.

Seriously considering the new ROTS Theater poster. I'm sorry I didn't get E's 1 and 2 also (have the IMAX).

I stopped by my Wm twice yesterday.... In the am after 1 job. Found the ROTS lightsabers, bought Ani's to check out the color change feature. haven't opened it yet. Then, got off the other job in time to go by before closing and check out the stock pallets. They had a bunc of SW LEGO, but no other Hasbro stuff.

3po comes tomorow!!!!!

Opened Ani's lightsaber last night. One thing I noticed at WM is that the saber handles show better scale and detailing then the older models, TPM, maybe even AOTC. Definitely better then the POTF2. I get it open and it takes 3 AA batteries instead of 2 or more C or D. Ani's saber has a clear blade and uses 8 LED's to give color - 4 blue, and at the push of a button, 4 red.

A nice improvement! Looking forward to getting the Obi saber at some point.

On MM I was not able to find all the fig's that I wanted. But I did get the ROTS novel, visual dictionary and "Art of... " books. Started reading the novel Sat evening, finished Mon night. Looking forward to seeing the movie now, more then ever.

was in NJ today and drove by a WM. Was very tempted to stop, but I figured I would just go to my regular store in DE, with no sales tax. A little while later I'm at my DE store. They had a pathetic display! About 5 or 6 figs total, all dupes of Ani and Obi. About the only other thing they had was lightsabers.

So I stopped at my TRU, where I found the ARC fighter, which was very welcome. They still didn't have any other fig's then what they had at MM.

In the same center is a Borders, where I picked up the ROTS Incredible Cross sections and the 'Making Of... ' book.

Was in PA today and stopped by the Springfield Target. Found the Clone Pilot wave... Picked up 2 Pilots, 2 Clone Commanders, Mas Ameeda and a Polis Massa. Prices were 5.24.

Springfield Mall is right up the street, so I stopped in the KB, where they had a Medical Chopper Droid. I didn't buy him because it was 6.99.

On the way home stopped at my usual Target, which had 2 of the figures with cups. Almost bought them, but decided to wait until they're on sale.

I've gotten a few items since my last posting that everyone else is finding, but today I wanted to post my good fortune.

Went into one of my local KB's and found the #41 SA clone, they actually had 2. I picked one up, mulling over the idea of paying $7 for it. Walked around to the LEGO section to look for one of the clearance items they've had now for years (gone now), but instead found the LEGO AT-PT / ST.... whatever its called. They had marked them all to $3. It was from a box they had gotten that day. I picked one up and proceeded to checkout. The girl rang me up for 20 bucks, at which time I pointed out the error. So I didn't feel bad, as I walked out paying 10 total for both items.

I forgot to add that I found 2 Jedi Council sets on clearance at TRU for $8 each. One had Mace and the snake guy, the other has Depa Bilaba and Yaddle.
