I got a second Speeder Bike at the Westminster TRU - that store had four more, and the one on I-25 and Highway 7 had one. I got some Movie Heroes army builders at the first one, though the sale thankfully seems to have cleared both stores out of almost all their pegwarmers aside from the mainstays like Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan.

The TRU at I-25 and Highway 7 had only a few of the vehicle 2-packs, including one with the Mandalorian Transport (and Anakin's Starfighter), but the many they had a few days ago were all gone so I doubt they will last long. The store was extremely busy as well.

The nearby Walmart on 136th didn't have a single one of the 8-packs, which was too bad.

Went to Tower Rd. Walmart, they had a nice SW free-standing display, lots of Angry Birds SW stuff, some of the role-play toys, and what is left of their 8-packs. Found a CW one with some figures I was missing; Stealth Ops clone, Saesee Tiin, and Seripas. Needless to say I now have 5 other CW figures with no idea what to do with them, but the price was too good to pass up.

The Thornton Walmart (on Grant) had gotten in a few more cases of TVC wave 4 when I was there Wednesday evening, so I got the two 501st Clone Troopers. They had several each of Dr. Evazan, Wedge, and brown bandana Kithaba, plus a few of TCW Anakin, Hoth Luke, and ANH Vader.

I haven't seen any of the 8-packs and assume most of them are gone now - not that I needed any of the figures in them, but some cheap army builders would have been nice. It's good to see that they allowed some of the harder-to-find figures to get back out there.

I got the new Class I MTT Droid Fighter at the Thornton TRU and the 501st Republic Attack Dropship at the Westminster TRU. The Westminster store had the MTT Droid Fighter as well as a Yoda's Jedi Attack Fighter, but I passed for now since Yoda's eye paint was awful. Hopefully others will be better.

Swung by Mississippi Toys R Us, still not much going on in the SW section, several BMFs no Class 1 2013 vehicles as of yet, I did score the Prequel-Based new Pop-up book "Galactic Pop-up Adventure" for half price, which considering the original price is quite a deal, they had a few left still in the plastic wrap, as well as some of the Star Wars LEGO Minifigure books (Dictionary, sticker book etc) in the half off display.

Nothing terribly exciting on the runs I've done over the last couple weeks, Target's have quite a bit of Star Wars related merchandise in the Valentine's day section including candy dispensers, boxed candy, Valentines etc. My Jocasta Nu did show up today, with proof card, so if you ordered yours in August look for those coming to the door soon.

My Jocasta showed up a few weeks ago after I ordered her back in July.

I got the 501st AT-RT at the Thornton TRU yesterday afternoon, but it was the only Class I ship there. They had restocked their TVC figures and I got the only army builder, another Rebel Fleet Trooper, since they were doing a BOGO 50% off sale.

The Huron Target has reset, and I picked up the $20 Republic Fighter Tank there. They had a Class I 501st Republic Dropship and several of the cheapo 12" figures, along with a bunch of Angry Birds stuff, but nothing else noteworthy.

Aurora Town Center Target had a restock of the part Episode 1/ Malgus wave, so I finally picked up the Imperial Naval Commander, they still had the ANH Vader, Hoth Luke, and CW Anakin, as well as the E1 figures that are mixed in with them.

The Target on Church Ranch Blvd. also had gotten in the Malgus wave but sold only the Malgus and Imperial Navy Commander. How sad is it that this wave is still in short supply and only trickling in a full year after its initial release? Westminster TRU has 10 Movie Heroes Qui-Gon (9 of the grappling hook version, 1 light-up saber) but little else. So, uh, if you need a cheap Qui-Gon army, now is your chance.

I've been filling a few older holes at comic shops since there's so little out there. I recently finally picked up Yoda's Jedi Attack Fighter, but Yoda's eyes are so horrendous that I'm waiting to find a better one - fat chance, but still.

The Gordmans near the Walmart on Grant and 104th had two each of the 2012 green Republic Fighter Tank and Anakin's Jedi Starfighter for $20 each, but the Naboo Starfighters were sold out. If you still need one, try the various Gordmans in the area.

Check Big Lots. I saw one there a few days ago, and would've snagged it if I knew it was so tough to find. IIRC, it was $18.

The set itself isn't rare, but it's hard to find one with well-painted eyes. Most of them are at least halfway down his cheeks. I ended up opening mine since it was one of the better ones.

I got the ROTJ AT-AT at the TRU on Highway 7 and I-25, and there was another in stock. They had also gotten in several cases of the Malgus wave, but all that was left was, unsurprisingly, Anakin, Luke, and the TPM carry-forwards.

Is anyone going to Denver Comic Con this weekend? I'll be going Saturday. It looks like they'll have a few Star Wars events then, like a trivia contest and a panel on its future featuring Rebels executive producer Greg Weisman. Of SW note, Peter Mayhew, Dee Bradley Baker, and Phil LaMarr will be there as well, so hopefully it should be pretty cool.

Northfield Target had some of the Class 1 2013 vehicles, as well as those "interesting" new 12" figures, several of both Anakin and Clone Trooper.
Well, I was at the Northfield Super Target a couple weeks back, and they had 6 total SW figures. All I bought there was a pack of Band-Aids.

But Denver was a nice visit. And we left the day before the big fires began.

Nothing terribly exciting on the toy front, peg warmers continue to warm pegs, but Target is finally pricing them to move, hopefully. While perusing the clearance sections I stumbled upon a really nice Star Wars bedding set, for adults no less. Snagged that up, the outrageous $89.99 original price had been taken down to a much more palatable $26.98 for a Queen sized quilt and 2 shams. So a look-see through the Home Section could be a good venture. The Northfield Target only had the one, but it's possible other Targets have it floating around somewhere.
