Congrats! I have two WalMarts around me, I am dead smack in the middle and the furthest away from both of them lol. If I keep driving around wasting fuel I'm going to be paying more than $15 easy based on the toys being cleared out when I get there...

From ebay @ $11 per/ shipping included(when broken down lol):

5x tvc battle droid loose (put me @ 6 total)

2x tusken raider

1x aura sing

Now I do not have to check my stores for a very very long time... Worth it to me based on my location and lack of luck!

I just saw that she is also planned for the vintage line. The Movie Heroes version is different from the original POTJ figure, right? And is the other one for this year just the Movie Heroes figure on a TVC card?

Yep, she is a brand-new sculpt.

This is technically in the Discover the Force line; and this figure will be released later in the year in The Vintage Collection. But, she may not come with all of the accessories she is getting now. I sent you a picture of the figure to your phone.

Good. That's what I thought.

I obviously haven't been paying much attention to anything non-TCW, because I have no idea what that is. Different packaging? On different pegs?

Got it. Thanks!

The figures in the Discover the Force wave are exclusive to Walmart, and the packaging comes with a pair of 3D glasses attached to the left side of the card. Besides this, the packaging is pretty much the same as Movie Heroes and The Clone Wars.

I had no idea. Glad I asked.

The Tusken is still sitting up here at my desk at work. I'll open it up tonight and let you know. I did open Aurra over the weekend, and she is spectacular. Easily one of the better figures in the wave, up there with the Gungan Warrior and Mawhonic. I am still hunting for a Ric Oliť figure with decent paint apps on the face/head. I've bought two so far, and I am going to buy a third one this evening. I'll take them home tonight, make a final decision on the best one, and then return the other two.

G8-R3 Cool

Until today it had been many months since I bought a new figure.

Hold on a minute. The packaging is exclusive to Walmart, but aren't only 2 of the figures exclusive? I thought the rest were coming out on regular cards as well.

You are correct. All but two of these figures will be coming out on Vintage cards later in the year. But what I meant by "exclusive" is that if you want these figures now, then you will have to go to Walmart to get them. You can't get them at this time at Target, K-Mart, BBTS, EE or TRU.

So, after deciding on my favorite Ric Oliť figure last night, I am now done with the Discover the Force wave (I wanted 7 of the 12 figures). I have also found all of the figures that I want from the first wave of The Vintage Collection (8 of the 12 figures); and I have found all the figures that I want from the first wave of The Clone Wars (4 of the 10 figures). So, it's lull time until the second wave of The Vintage Collection shows up, and the second wave of Movie Heroes (I want that new Jar Jar figure).

Oh good. For a moment there I thought I was hallucinating. Badly.

Lull time for me is approaching as well, and I a most looking forward to it. Between acquiring several vehicles, older figures from older lines(Legacy, Saga etc. ) vigorously hunting down the current DTF releases (wave 1 acquisitions completed!) and touching up on my trooper armies(vintage collection) both me and my wallet could use a nice break! With the next wave pre-ordered from BBTS I am well ahead of the game and will lull it up to the absolute utmost! If anyone sees/ hears of Wave 3 pre-orders available please do let me know... it is scary to think if I didnt order some of these figures online... I would NEVER see/ be able acquire them. I still have yet to see a good amount of TVC on pegs, and a damn good amount @ that.
