The TJ Maxx near the Target on Church Ranch had several each of the 2013 Yoda-boxed Class I and II vehicles for around $14 each, along with some roleplay items and series 4 Fighter Pods stuff I had never seen at regular stores, but no basic figures. TRU on I-25 and Highway 7 had the new 12" Anakin-to-Vader and the Anakin-to-Vader Ultimate FX lightsaber. So at least things are getting out there.

The Targets I've been to lately have had everything BUT Vintage on sale.

The Target in Aurora near Havana had the 12" figures in the Vader box, including repacked Anakin and Clone plus Obi-Wan and Vader. I picked up a few discounted Fighter Pods sets at various Targets, since why not.

The Englewood Target had gotten in a case of The Black Series 3 3/4" last night - I picked up every figure except for Luke and the Clone Sergeant, since a guy who was standing in the aisle when I got there had them in his basket. Only the extra Anakin and Biker Scout remained, so they have definitely hit the state!

I saw some of TBS 3 3/4" at the Walmarts on Colfax/Wadsworth and 6th/Wadsworth, which had both reset (in the case of the one on 6th, reset for a second time). I picked up Luke at the Colfax one, so I only need the Clone Trooper Lieutenant to complete the wave.

The TRU on Highway 7 and I-25 had one Biggs X-wing, which I bought. They also had a few 3 3/4" TBS figure remnants, including the black strap Biker Scout. They had pegs for the 6" figures but they were gone.

Y'all stay safe in Colorado. I don't know if the news media is blowing the flooding out of proportion (I know they tend to do that, but I'm always concerned they're not), but it sounds bad out there.

Thanks. Luckily it didn't hit hard around me or my family, though a few friends have damp basements.

Where 'text' & 'friend' are nouns
The owner of the online comics company, Mile High Comics (see me at their awesome warehouse) that I've shopped from for years (when they were only in ads inside comics), had his home flooded, which damaged some of his personal comics collection, despite protections to preserve the books. :(

Of course it's been so quiet lately, but TRU has the Republic Gunship down to $100 and in fairly good supply at the 88th & Sheridan and I-25 & Highway 7 stores.

I went to Bigtop Collectibles on 64th & Ward in Arvada, and it's a very nice store with a fantastic collection. My needs list (of older items) is down to a mere 10 items now, but I was able to get the final figure-and-cup set (Boba Fett). But if you're looking for older army builders or items that you missed, I'd definitely check them out.

It's been far too long since I've had a successful SW run, but I happened into Neighborhood Market Walmart off Chambers and Green Valley Ranch Road, to my shock they had a full set of Wave 3 Black Series, less Captain Rex, which I'm not sure made it into this wave or not. They also had some Mara Jades and just about every trooper that's been released so far, so it's good to know at least one store carrys beyond wave 2.

Oh wow, that's crazy. Was Plagueis there? Those Neighborhood Market stores can be pretty great since they're so out of the way, but it's a crapshoot as to whether they'll have a toy section at all.

BTW, Captain Rex isn't scheduled for release in The Black Series yet (one of the few figures from the cancelled Legacy/Build-A-Droid line to not yet make it out), but there's a Saga Legends version due out any day now.

Yeah he was there, it looked like they had just been put out. I've had decent luck with that store since it opened, the Tower and 40th Walmart, which is the closest full location has never gotten any Black Series, barely just got the Legacy 2 packs and such.

I don't think I've even heard of any wave 3 sightings in the USA yet - at least not widespread ones. That's so awesome!

Still no Plagueis or 6" Boba, but I got wave 2 of Mission Series at the Highway 7 TRU yesterday. They must have just put out a fresh case, as there were still three of each set when I left.

I got Saga Legends Commander Cody at the Highway 7 TRU on Sunday. They still had one each of Mission Series wave 2, and the Huron Walmart had a few of each.

I also went to about five Walgreens around Denver, in addition to others a little farther out. Only one had any TBS figures at all, so none of them had Plagueis or anything new.

I got 6" Boba at the Kmart on Broadway in Denver last weekend, in addition to the rest of Saga Legends wave 2 across a few Targets and TRUs, most of which seemed to be stocking them. Most Targets have also received at least one case of 3 3/4" TBS wave 3, but Plagueis has already been grabbed by the time I've seen the other figures in each instance.

I got the 6" Stormtrooper at the Boulder Target today, which also had the rest of 6" wave 3 and several of 3 3/4" wave 3 including Plagueis.
