No jabbas. They did have a few TF Drifts though iirc. Not much CW or legends, in fact i don't remember any. I should've looked at the cases on the cart more thoroughly for the jabba in retrospect. ah well, time to get ready & mail away for RF fett!
Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

Ok, gotta be quick b/c i'm cooking but, I DID go outside and....La Cienega TRU had 4 or 5 vintage fetts. If ur still lookin, go there. They also had the new "Legacy" 2 packs - Anakin to Vader, Fett and Grievous packs. Pretty cool looking, but i have all those figs. Also had a cool IM2 battlepack with IM, Nick Fury and 2 Battle Drones. The drones were awesome, but I couldn't get over the pink knees on the Mk VI armor. Eww. $25 for the IM pack. $18 for the SW 2 packs.
the big discovery (post a pic later) was at Culver city TRU -- the new CW Slave 1 UBP!!! They had 2. $99 a piece. Maybe I have one of the first Socal/LA spottings??!? Also had some at-ats on sale.
edit: cool. finally figured out how to add attachments

CV exclusives are up on HTS.
Found a clearanced Imperial ARC-170 for $16.24 at Target. Now if I can only find a similarly priced Y-Wing...
ha. Saw the ARC and Y-wing on "clearance" at K-mart the other day for $50 or $52.
wow. No one cares about the Slave 1 pack --not even rebelscum. (really brief mention - but no "found" headline.) weak!! I know CV is overshadowing everything, but come on!!! People have found this in 3+ states already
I got Slave-One this morning. I'll probably open this set in a few hours or so here.
It looks awesome!
BAD Pts Need: R5-C7 lf leg (x2), , R4-P44 right leg BAD Pts Offered For Trade: PM me - I have lots of parts now including BG-J38!. New Kyle Katarn is also available.
I just opened Slave-One and I can say it's already set-up for an OT version!
In the interior there's a plug-hole in the wall where I bet you could hang carbon-frozen Han Solo - though I imagine he'd go in the prisoner holding cell that the current cage fits into now - so you can accurately take Solo up the ramp.
There's also space above the cockpit (accessable unfortunately only by swinging open the whole cockpit loading panel (with the window in it).
I think for the PT / CW version they could have added another firing weapon feature like the "gatling gun" 4-shooter on the AOTC version that I like so much. It couldn't be rear-activated, but you could have it shoot some other way, or install the pop-out missile launcher on the side like Jango used vs. Obi-Wan.
Overall, I really, really like this one. It's so worth it!
(And yes, Hasbro already said there will be a Boba Fett repaint from ESB in 2 or so years so don't bother making customs).
