Walmart very late on Saturday night. Somebody had probably just put them out because it was around 1 AM (coming home from a D&D session).

I like him a lot. Very different from the other clones.

I'd like to pick up that Commander Fox sometime too. Maybe the newer Rex and Commander Wolffe both of them have updated helmets I believe.

They do. However . . . they don't have KNEES. :evil: :evil: :evil:

Cutbacks strike again. :evil:

I found some B-Wings at Marshall's for $16.99. Still thinking about it myself. I don't have room for vehicles, but I I might pull the trigger on the Scout Walker that's at K-mart. Saw the K-Mart Ewok 2-pack and the Endor imperial dudes 2-pack. I think I'll wait for those to go on sale. Target has 3-packs on sale so I picked up the 3 droid pack for $20, down from $25. And there must be some refreshers because I found a Rebel trooper, Death Star trooper, and Hoth Luke at 3 different locations. Happy to get those guys. I just wish I could find Jedi Origin Luke. All in all. A slow year for Star Wars collecting for me.

Picked up the 2 KMART packs-- be aware-- the AT-ST guys-- look absolutely nothing like the ones on the box-- their web gear is more grey than green-- and there are no holsters anywhere on them..

I went to a thrift store and found a POTF2 Endor Speeder Bike for like a 1.50 complete and an Endor POTF2 Luke to go along with it! Not modern SW but it made me happy! Also found some late 2000s Clone Wars Jawas super cheap from yard sales!

How's their articulation?

And how are the Ewoks?

Everytime I hit my Kmart, all I find is the AT-ST in the vintage box. Never the 2-packs. Are they hanging from a peg or simply set on a shelf?

Im probably the last one to ask- since I dont like all the POA in the first place-- head sculpts on the Gunner and Driver are different though-- but still a little to close for my tastes--

As far as the ewoks-- one of them looks a bit cartoony in the head sculpt/paint- and the other has an oversized hood-- but they will fit in well with the ewok army

I still need the Kmart Ewok pack. No Kmarts near me, now that the one close by closed about a year ago.

I stopped collecting Star Wars figures a couple of years ago because I was tired of all the repeats with new packaging. How many General Grievous figures do I need?

When I stopped by my LCS today, I noticed several hard-to-find Star Wars figs on the pegs that had been released about the time I stopped collecting. I'm guessing someone had to part with his collection and unloaded them at the comic book shop.

One of the figures was Ephant Mon, which I had always wanted but was never able to find in stores. And my LCS wanted only 8 bucks for it, which is cheaper than eBay, so I happily brought him home. He's a really cool figure with a great design. And he's a big hunk of plastic :lol:

My Kmart is always completely nutty, I honestly think they just open the boxes and put toys on any random shelf with no sense of rationality. The Legos are literally dispersed across four separate aisles.

I found the AT-ST, but then I find a bunch of Ewok and AT-ST driver packs put on some random shelf way on the other side of the toy department.

If you want something at K-Mart , you really have to carefully look everywhere.

Some guy at the AZ Toy Swap Meet had the Ewok 2-pack and wanted $40 for it.

I passed, obviously. But at least now I know exactly what I'm looking for.

I'm going to try to hit both of my Kmarts this week. They're a bit out of the way, but not too far.

Best thing to do is to call ahead and have them look it up by the UPC number.

I did that for 2 different K-Marts, they found the unopened case in the back and held a set at the Service desk for me.

UPC # 653569779452

Found the new Speeder bike and Biker Scout at TRU yesterday. At LONG last an on-model speeder bike and a rider that rides it properly.
