Nice finds & gets Figrin and maradona! Been meaning to post but forgot, I'm lookin for a TVC Starkiller, non-tan deleted scene Luke (saber construction), an opener Shae vizla and, especially if its a beater card, an opener Malgus.
For TF, i'm lookin for a deluxe FOC shockwave, deluxe Evac (TF:the ride) and MP thundercracker and MP optimus. I'd be broke, but i'd be 1 happy camper if i had all of those right now. :joyous:
I know it doesn't help your anticipatuon, but thos 2 MP's haven't been released yet. I haven't seen any FOC's yet either, but all the Cali reports I've read have been TRU's and Burbank just does not stock often enough.
Bikerscout, I think I forgot to mention it but Universal had plenty of Evacs in stock when I visited a few days before SDCC.
From reports I've read, the following Marvel Comic Packs are now out:
FF Dr. Doom/Spiderman
I would love to find all of them, but I haven't seen any of them. Good hunting!
EDIT: Found and bought She-Hulk/Wolverine and Magneto/Captain America at LF TRU. There were still several more Magneto/Cap packs left as of this afternoon.
La Cienega Target - 1x TVC ANH Vader, I bought it. Also, 2nd wave of Mattel Hot Wheels 1/42nd Batmobile line, on sale for $6.99, I picked up the Batman Forever Batmobile (only 1) and left behind the camo BB Tumbler, '40s Batmobile (looks a lot like the Corgi version, but different paint), and regular Tumbler.
Will keep an eye out.

Bran got me Evac from Universal where it's exclusive, it's a cool figure, only oddity is why they put side hinges on the ankles, just seems like a waste of budget.
I'm looking for TVC Starkiller and Malgus, both for opening. And TF I'm with you on FOC Shockwave.
I'll keep an eye out for the Dr Doom and Thanos ones, but haven't seen 'em so far.

Shockwave is 2 per case, so he's not Vehicon short packed. And we only have assortments for the first two waves - I doubt that he won't show up again. And when have we ever truly had issues finding a figure in the first wave of any TF line? I remember wondering if I'd ever see Prime Soundwave or Wheeljack at retail. Has not been an issue. I hope scalpers choke on the figure.

La Cienega TRU had none of those at all, but did have Transformers Cyberverse Ultra Magnus and Dreadwing in multiples.
Crenshaw WM had zip, Target La Cienega had more nothing but still nothing.
I dunno how it is around LA proper, but I'm noticing more and more stores not restocking Vintage. I'm still thinking that, despite Hasbro's unwillingness to recognize it, most stockers see "Star Wars plastic men" and don't pay a bit of attention to the packaging.
Chux, we just have a glut of Episode One figures around in San Diego.
Darth Maul, the Pod Racers, and Queen Padme sold however. But people can buy Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Battle Droids in so many types of package offerings, and vintage costs more.
Quinlan is less recognizeable and it's the 3rd figure of him. 4th actually. I don't consider that a disparagment on the Expanded Universe, because I think if it were a realistic Xanatos figure from the EU for example, it would move better than another Quinlan (as much as I like his character). Sidious is an "old man figure" and moves as expected in spite of me wanting other (actually not "old") figures of Bail Organa. Sidious is actually not clogging any pegs.
Re-releasing the Clone Wars animated version of Sidious, the Fire-Fighting Battle Droid, Tactical Droid, and Thi-Sen for example, would all move better if the shipment was limited.
