I want to get Vaders Tie Fighter before its gone

I need at least 4 of the engineers to add to the other 4 of Bly's grunts (3 withthe new battle pack and one from the evolutions set)

I heard that the V Wing will finally make it appearance this year

First as a titanium which I have seen and the other for the action figure line

Well, holy shit. Today was the day my bank account cried and nearly died. My super-haul!

Clicky here... I had already opened Kitik and Aurra when I took the pic ;)

I found the Walmart wave, and bought each one of those plus the Super Battle Droid redeco. Then I went to pick up a package from my parents' house, which was the Death Star briefing set. Later I stopped into Target where they stole the most of my money... namely for the Battle Packs and the Transformers Classics set. ;)

WJ35... any chance you could pick up one or two of those R5-J2 figures for me?

Thanks man :) Anything you're after, just let me know.

Haha.. I saw those, too, when I bought all that stuff from Target. I almost cried, because I really wanted Ramjet, but I was emptying my bank enough as it was. I'm sure Ramjet will pop up a lot more in the coming weeks than these SW figures, though... I hope...

I still regret not getting holo Aayla and Plo Koon from the end of the 2005 line, and a few others like Grievous' Bodyguard. I'll not make that mistake again... when I find these "end of the year" figures, I just grab them. Whether that be at a KB Toys where I pay out the ass for them, or at a Walmart where I can use my discount. ;)

Here are a few pics of the figures I opened. I still haven't gotten around to opening the Battle Packs, but frankly, I don't have the room to display them right now!

Grabbed a Combat Engineer and 442nd Trooper this evening.

Tempted by the Evil Astromech, but I'm just going to continue hunting for Kit and the 5th Fleet Trooper.

I picked up two more of those Walmart value packs.

Endor soldier (black)
Endor soldier (white)
Hologram Darth Maul
AT-AT Driver

I never did get Maul when I saw him one or two times in the store, so this worked out. The rest are duplicates, but I wanted to do some swapping with the Endor soldiers. Plus, I have an extra of the Saga Endor solider that the 2006 figure is based on... I'm going to try a head swap with one of the new figures. It seems the 2006 version has the same neck base on the torso as the old figure (which only had a swivel, not a ball & socket). I just wish I had more of the bigger rifles with the strap. They look much better in the soldier's hands than that semi-weeny blaster gun. If I can make fabric tunics for them, too, that would make them even better... :D

What's up with the Sith Infiltrator? It's tiny!

And who are the new figures? Two crazy looking stormtroopers, an all black Crimson Guard with a lightsaber, and other curious figures.

Furthermore, the Gunship TF is disappointing, but the Saesee Tinn TF looks good and the Commander Cody TF looks great.

Curious to see that AT-AT TF in Robot Mode.

Well, holy shit. Hasbro declared war on my wallet, and on three fronts they won: Star Wars, GI Joe 25th Anniversary, and Spider-Man / Marvel. Though I won't get every Spider-Man or Marvel figure that they put out, I'll probably end up with all of the SW and GI Joes.

As for the Sith Infiltrator... they had to produce it for the $20 vehicle pricepoint. I would have also preferred it to be larger (and maybe $30), but I suppose we get what we can, during a non-movie year. At least it's in proper proportions, unlike some of the older (70s / 80s) scaled-down vehicles (Falcon, X-Wing, etc).

No :( I haven't been down in that area for a while. I hate going to the mall and the stores around there alone... but I'll get out there eventually. I also want to see if that store or the one on 19 near the mall have any Doctor Who stuff...

Raaargh. Our Walmart has a bunch of new Battlepacks (Dagobah and Geonosis), Comic 2-packs, Vehicles, Unleashed troop builders, and a ton and a half of SWTFs, but not a single individual 3.75" action figure. They finally sold the last three that they had since Christmas, and they still haven't restocked the figures!
