Found the vintage target vehicles at 2 different stores this weekend 1 at 1 and 1 at another tried putting a $5 legends fig with it to use my $5 off 30 coupon but thanks to 1 penny it came to 29.99 before tax and the witch behind the counter said nope your one penny short. Also found all 4 new vehicles this weekend seems like everyones only going for the swamp speeder found about 7 or 8 cases of theses and only 1 had the swamp speeder left. done for now time to rest and refill that bank account thanks hasbro for the $400 push this last week.
TRU arc stash claimed. Thanx bran!!! Price was murder as all SW BPs are nowadays, but when the heck are ya gonna find this thing & on sale?
I think I'll sell Capt. Rex loose if anyone wants it, but i do like the rifle.

Good News: found a bunch of new vehicles at TRU.
Bad News: they raised their prices to $27.99 Grrrrr.
Good News: I had $20 in coupons/Clone Ca$h so I grabbed 2 Swamp Speeders.
I bought my Swamp Speeder there. I also think I want one more to use with Hondo Ohnaka's men (the Niktos I bought and the Weequay I'm getting in the Hostage Crisis battlepacks) because they're not likely to make those assault skiffs. If Hondo gets vehicles, it will either be his tank, or that flying saucer the Rapier-One. (I'd buy both!!!) The assault skiffs were the ones JarJar jumped on when he came to free Anakin and Obi-Wan, who were trying to take Dooku into custody from Hondo.
Did you see Plo Koon's starfighter by any chance? I need one of those to fly escort for my CW Y-wing.
Also can't wait for the Droid Gunship to start shipping. But I don't think we'll see that until right on top of Christmas.
Also back when hasbro was doing the free gear giveaway i sent in a ton of old receipts and to my surprise i recieved 2 rex helmets and 1 dual action lightsabers in the mail yesterday ...... for free. good deal. but i still havent received my rocket fett or bric which i dont think has shipped at all yet. come on hasbro.
I've decided to send away for a few Sgt. Brics (though I dislike the character - I need alien "populations" for diorama scenes - which I really have to stop making because I don't actually make them - I put the appropriate figure components in a labeled box and hope I have room one day*).
So meanwhile, I'm cutting out POPs off carded figures I carefully manipulate to keep otherwise sealed so I don't lose stuff.
*I will be making at least one giant Clone Wars scene - Christophis from the movie:
2 Republic Fighter Tanks (in place of the stationary cannons which Hasbro doesn't make)
2 Corporate Alliance Tank Droids
1 AAT Tank driven by Whorm Loathsome
1 Octoparra Droid (I'll love opening this because I still haven't as of yet)
and the usual acompanying Droids, Clones, and Jedi. I also have those "retail" droids (they look like boxes on legs) from the new battlepack and I'm grateful that Hasbro made these.
I'd like to add a (NOT MADE) Republic Attack Shuttle piloted by Yularen and occupied by Master Yoda one day to give the Republic a little more. But that was the point - Obi-Wan and Anakin lacked the resources to hold out on Christophis.
So for me it's fun to (at least look forward to) set(ting) stuff up. I'm not really a "collector," but I found an excuse to get Sgt. Bric for figure variety, though I can't stand the guy in the cartoon.
