Got my GG 5-Commanders tonight!!
Cracked open my two ARC 170 battlepacks. Really like the clones. Better than expected. The pilots are cool looking and so is the R2 unit. But who needs that many pilots and the same R2 units. I think this battlepack will pegwarm a little after a while.
Opened my Battlefront II Clones pack(the droid pack is crap; they look like swapmeet knockoffs). All I'll say for now is the Clones pack is overrated, and the Engineer with the new helmet is very overrated and crudely done. The Sharpshooter is the best in my opinion, and the 501st Jet Trooper and the Heavy Trooper are the second and third best; the Engineer gets points for originality, but it's a lot worse executed than the pictures suggest. The pictures make it look great. In person, it looks more like a pig than I thought it would. The regular 501st clone is a waste of plastic.

Full pegs of older stuff at Burbank Target. Lots of white Sandies, Shockies, Clone Captains. Picked up a 2nd Starkiller finally! The only McFig out today. Not a full Wave 5 set tho, only Anakin & Roron besides Star. Tons of people there for Rock Band lining up in Electronics... Plumber Bob, Commtech & I could've just grabbed some from an endcap halfway to action figures that everyone else was oblivious to.
Hit Los Feliz TRU this morning. They had cases of Wave 4, 5 and Wave 7 out. Only 1 McSolo (there should have been at least 6) and 2 McVaders on the shelves, No UGH McStormie, but thet did have UGH Luke and Han. Apparently they restocked before closing last night. So, either someone got really lucky last night or the employees got them.
Also heard that Wave 7.5 hit East Pasadena Target big time today. I was told they put out several cases and that one lady had about 30 of those figures in her cart.
