Picked up an Unleashed Shadow Stormtrooper from Walmart in the U.S.  No other SW finds worth mentioning.

I also just picked up an Unleashed Shadow Stormtrooper.  nothing else new.  Target had the vader w/coin case marked down to $7US. 

Saw a whack of Order 66's at 3 targets.  $10 each US

No Ilum battlepacks though :(

Also saw the Bantha "battlepack" at TRU.

Did you see both variants of the Bantha?  I am wondering if we will see both variants here in Canada?

Variants?  If you mean the curly hair and the fuzzy hair, they were all the greasy curly looking hair.

Phoenix had some new stuff when I was down there last week...

- Banthas at multiple TRU stores.
- new SW:TFs Clone Gunship, Mace, and Tiin's orange Starfighter.
- found 4/6 Order 66 2-packs (no Yodas) on clearance for 50% off and this was only at 1 Target (out of around 6 total stores visited) way out in the boonies.
- EU Comic 2 packs at TRU
- Partial TAC Wave 2 at several stores (only grabbed a DS Trooper), but mostly Hans all around.

Hi, y'all, I've been visiting this great site and this is my first contribution. Just visiting a friend in Wisconsin this week, been at Target and seen:

- Vintage TAC Han, Luke, Leia (someone snagged all of the Snowtroopers, Bossks and IG-88s) :(
- Remnants of TAC wave 2 and 1, none of the more popular figs (i.e. McStormie & McFett)
- Luke & R2 Comic packs
- 1/2 price Order 666 Obi & Utapau trooper
- TAC TIE & V-Wing
- Remnants of Saga final wave

WalMart here just has remnants of Saga final wave. Cheers!

Just back from C4, and had a lot of success on the drive back.  Best stop was in Vegas at Wal-Mart, got the entire wave 3 including the Concept Chewie.  They also had the new Vintage figures, although I passed on the for now.  Lots of them though, 6 PDQ's with 12 in each, and more on the pallet.  Loads of the wave 2 comic packs, and picked up a set of them as well. They also had the Fathers Day 2 pack set that everyone seems to be disgusted by.  Myself, I like it and at $10, figure its not all that bad.  Also grabbed the Mickey/Yoda 2 pack from Disney, and a Holiday Yoda at C4 for $8.  Now, I gotta find a place to out it all.   :mad0218:

I was in Niagara Falls today and hopped over the US side - found new Ultra titanium vehicles at TRU (x-wing, tie fighter, etc) and the new SW transformers (Mace etc).

Was at a collector shop in T.O. and got the newest wave of Titanium on US packaging.  Plo Koon's jedi starfighter with hyperdrive ring, orange deco B-Wing, V-wing, Hoth Turbo tank, green (Kashyyk) deco Arc 170.  Forgot to get the Red Ep 3 Obi Wan fighter.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Made a quick trip to the US today.  Walmart had the new vintage-style figs(I don't remember what they are called now).  4 boxes of them and not one Snowtrooper to be found.  Also, they had the Father's Day 2-pack.  All the above were $9.97 each.  V-Wing and Sith Infiltrator as well as tons of Tie Fighters were also around.  Saw some Saga Lengends(?) pegwarmers at Target as well as Saesee Tinns starfighter.  They also had the vintage-style pegwarmers(meaning all but the Snowtrooper).
