Is the Tusken a straight repack?

I also went to Buffalo today. Checked 3 WMs but only got lucky at one of them - scored the most of the remnants of the DTF stuff: Aurra Sing, Mawhonic, Ric Olie, Tusken Raider, Dewback. No droid BPs. Other than that all 3 chains have pretty much the same products as are available here, for only slightly lower prices - better off to get them on sale in Canada. I also picked up the Lego Y-wing and Geo. Cannon at TRU for the 30% sale price, plus USB drive, so not a total bust.

You didnt happen to pick up an extra dewback by any chance?

Sorry, no everything that I found was the last ones left. It was kinda disappointing. I think these stores must have had some heavy traffic over the weekend, with the movie coming out and everything, and just hadn't gotten to restocking yet. I had a feeling that would happen going on a Monday, but it's the only day I could go.

Also, forgot to mention, the Vintage vehicle wave was out there, but I wasn't interested in those. And I picked up the CW BARC with Clone Buzz and AT-RT with Keeli.

So I haven't opened the package up, but from what I can see it is exactly a repack of the Vintage SAGA2 figure. Which is a great figure and I've only got 1 of them - can't just have a single Tusken Raider!

Picked up the new case assortment wave 2 revision 2 at the PO box from BBTS.
I must say this is the nicest case I've seen in awhile.
Luke Hoth
Luke Jedi
Nom Amor
Clone Wars Ani
Vader E4
Aayla Secura
501st
Kithaba
Evazan
Wedge
Qui gon
Darth Maul
The last 2 I don't need but still a better assortment then usual.
3 weeks ago I found a lone Leia DS at A Walmart in the US
and 2 weeks ago I scored Gen. McCrackhead and Mon Cal Pilot from an online place for a good price.
Rack this up with the Luke Hoth, Imp Navy Trooper and Darth Malgus from my earlier post in regular finds
and the only new figure I am missing is DS Lando.
 :D :artoo:
Interestingly enough the last time Lando shipped (General) last year it took me 3 months to find it it eluded me for quite sometime.
I hope it's not like that now.

I don't have them in hand yet, but I've just had two target exclusive two-packs purchased for me in Des Moins Iowa.  One is "The Rise of Darth Vader" with Vader and ep I anakin, and the other is "Emergence of the Sith" with Darth Maul and Ep III Sidious.  From the pics I looked at of them on ebay they appear to all be re-packs for the Movie Heroes line.

June 21 lunchtime - Walked in the door of my Toronto LCS just as they were putting new Tarkin Wave cases on the pegs! Scored Tarkin, Hoth Luke, Nikto & Oddball. Left the rest + Malgus at $24.99 each, he's not my type. They were getting picked over even before staff could get them up...
