Just got back from Buffalo, NY.
I checked 3 Wal-Marts, 2 Targets and 2 TRUs, and NOTHING from TVC wave 4 or 5 was there. Only the same peg-warming remnants of waves 1 and 2 that we have here. Lots of ROTS Clones and Sandtroopers. The only place I found anything from ROTJ was the one Wal-mart that had them before Christmas when I picked up most of that wave, but all they had now was Endor Rebels and Wooof. No new CW figs either.

Just got home.Went out at 3:00 today to Detroit; 4 Wal Marts later finally found all of wave 5!!! I was worried I wouldn't find them today since everyone from that area was reporting them yesterday!
Yoda is awesome!
Luke, face sucks.
Han, meh, been there done that.
212th clone has a yellowing helmet, I won't even open it until I can replace it. You'd think for what they are charging Hasbro would put more effort into better plastic!
R5-D4 nice piece; not as dirty as the first one.
Stormtrooper, nice but been there done that as well.
Gree, been there done that.
I did buy one of each though!

Also saw and picked up all of the new Clone wars figs R7-A7 etc.
Also saw and bought the new Target Clone Wars 2 packs w/ Boil and new Geonosian $14.97 each, I haven't even heard of these hitting yet!
Over all not a bad trip and I am completely caught up.
Kind of let down by what I've seen reported from Toyfare so far.

Managed to snag all of Vintage wave 5, as well as a clone trooper Draa at the Wal-mart in Ogdensburg NY this morning.

A little pricey ($8 US) but worth the trip!!

EDIT: Just realized I'd forgotten about Yoda... oh well, will pick him up during my trip to Syracuse next weekend.

Hey guys a question:

In a few days I am headed to Orlando for a week. I Google mapped where I am staying and there are several Walmarts and Targets in the area. I am hoping to score the rest of Vintage waves 4 & 5 and catch up on some Clone Wars figures that I need.

For you guys that travel more than me is it better to mail yourself the figures across the border or just bring them back in your luggage through customs? Anyone get nabbed with taxes/duty bringing them back in your luggage?

I will be bringing them back loose as that is the way I display them.

I wouldn't worry about it. If you're out of the country for more that 48 hours, you can declare up to $750 duty free. Unless you're planning any major purchases, just save your receipts in case you're asked. Just calculate the total, and let them know the total value of what you're taking back with you.

My wife and I go to the states around 8 - 10 times a year and have never had a problem.

Hope this helps.

Depending on how much you plan to buy, make sure you have enough suitcase room (I ended up buying a bag just to bring stuff back once). The ol' full suitcase within an empty suitcase trick often helps.

Also, as for the $750  - remember that is PER FAMILY MEMBER so you'll have lots of purchasing room. On the flight home, you'll be given a customs declaration form that asks how much you spent. Take an envelope with you to keep receipts in for all your purchases of things that are coming back.

Have a great trip, Orlando is awesome!

My in-laws were down in Montana this weekend they picked up Vintage wave 5 Han, Luke, R5, Yoda and 212 Clone. Also picked up Endor Capture Luke. They saw tons of Sandtroopers and ep3 Clones. No Gam Guards. It is great to have people willing to pick through figures for you.

Quick trip to Syracuse/Watertown last night landed me some nice finds:


Wave 3:
Luke (endor capture card)

Wave 4:
Zam
Jango
Mace

Wave 5:
Yoda

Clone Wars:
Captain Lock (x2)
Special Ops trooper & Drone
Arf Waxer & Battle Droid

Misc:
Jodo Kast

I've now completed wave 3 & 5, working on Wave 4. Could have picked the entire 4th wave today, but didn't want to push my luck with my wife, so had to prioritize.
