Took a trip across the border on Monday and, though I wasn't planning on buying any SW stuff, came back with a bunch of things.

Clone Wars: Yoda(fdoi)
                     Anakin(fdoi)
                     Captain Rex(fdoi)
                     R2
Legends: BD Vader
                Evo Trooper
                Yarna(fdoi)
                Bane Malar(fdoi)
                Ak-Rev(fdoi)
                Darth Vader(fdoi)
                Ewok and baby(fdoi)
                Scuba Trooper

Single figures were $6.94 at Walmart and $7.99 at Target.  Never got to a TRU.  I saw every series one figure except for the Clone Wars Luke.  Passed on any 'clone gear' figs. as I wasn't interested in the repacks that went with the gear.  Also steered clear of the Walmart exclusive Droid Factory packs.

Also grabbed the Rebel Pilots Evolutions Series II set.  It was tough to decide between this one and the Imperial pilots set which is also top-notch.  Interestingly, Walmart had the Padme evolutions on for $15.00.  Weird.

I picked up the last two Commander Fox exclusives that I saw at Target(see BST, if you want one).  $12.99 each.

My lady made the score of the day when she found a few Order 66 packs on clearance at Target(I had passed on these up until this point).  I got Luminara w AT-RT(#5), Tsui Choi w Barc Trooper and Master Sev w Arc Trooper for....wait for it...$2.48 each!!!

A fun time but spent way too much as I'm sure many did this past weekend.

They're COLLECTIBLES.  They don't become TOYS until you take them out of the package.

NO exclusives please - we're Canadian!

$2.48 what a price.  You gotta love Target.  When they put stuff on clearance THEY PUT STUFF ON CLEARANCE!  No messing around.

Well I just got back from 6 days in the US. I hit Target stores in Michigan, Illinois & Minnesota with varying degrees of success (Battlepacks were everywhere but Michigan, but the only place I saw the Clone Wars Speeder Bike Patrol one was in Illinois). Captain Rex I found in 2 locations: Illinois & St. Paul Minnesota. Easy pass. Everyone had basic figures from the first waves but NO wave 2 of Legacy anywhere (but then I didn't check any Walmarts the whole time so it's possible I missed them).

Lots of Falcons & AT-TEs to be found along with the smaller vehicles. I saw every new Evo set and got myself the Padme jobbie at the $19.99 price.  :)`

The TRU store in Port Huron was actually pretty well stocked, I saw (and wanted to get but passed on) the white large wing TIE and a bunch of the holo Grievous figures (which I didn't care about).

It was a LOT of driving and I'm very glad to be back on CDN turf.

Just got back from Florida and was able to pick up the 5 new Disney SW crossover figs, the 5 new racers and the muppet pack in Disney.

Flew into Buffalo so I was able to do some hunting down there and was able to pick up all of Legacy Wave 2 (Minus Padme). Also saw some of Wave 3 but didn't get any.

Also picked up the Holo Grevious and the WM 501st Trooper :u:

I went to TRU NY, and ''Jeepers!''  :speechless-smiley-004: it was so big, like 4 Tru's put together (maybe exaggerated,) but there were these giant Captain Rex displays, and I found alot of legacy collection, all the most recent lego, evolutions (no more Rep-Imp pilot collection,) all of CW wave 1, Ig-88 lancer also, and legacy collection with the Bane malar, the speeder on hoth patrol, and the hoth thingy with han, probe, etcetera, and the clones on bike patrol.

Found remnants of the latest wave of titaniums last weekend in Watertown NY.  I was able to pick up the tie defender and the MTT.  Unfortunately I didn't see the Rebel Transport.

Picked up the SBD and Oddball figs from CW: Wave 2. Also picked up the Coruscant Clone from Wave 3.

I know that Wave 3 has the Stormtrooper with blue eyes in the packaging, but I didn't realize that they were doing it with the Clone Wars packaging too. My SBD is normal, but the Oddball has the blue eyes packaging.

Just got back from  quick trip to Houston. There were lots of things on the shelves but mostly remnants of past waves...no Ahsoka or Commander Fox.
However, I couldn't resist picking up the Wal*Mart A-Wing and Anakin's modified Jedi Starfighter (Tartarovsky's Clone Wars one, blue and white). Also picked up a Target Exclusive Clone Helmet, with light. No new Titanium, Galactic Heroes, or Titanium (they had quite a lot of Wave 5 lying around).
