OK, we need to set up a thread for all of those TVC purchases we are about to make. Despite all of the reports flooding in, I have yet to find any hint of the TVC stuff hitting my area. But post here when you find it!

I went to a TRU in Dallas yesterday morning, to see if the TVC figures were in. The store had two pegs full of SL figures, on the new cards, but nothing that I needed. While I was there, my friend Marshall walked into the aisle, and we were able to chat a while and catch up. He told me that he had been to that TRU the day before, and had cleaned them out of all the TVC figures that they had. He was back for a few SL figures. Oh well, I was glad that he got what he needed; but my hunt continues.

I ordered some Legends figures from the new TVC line. From TRU.com, I bought Greedo, IG-88 and Bossk. They were Buy-One-Get-One-Half-Off, so the total for the three figs came out to $25 (including shipping). I am excited to get these, since I passed on them when they were released as $10 VOTC figures. But now that I am focusing on definitive figures of each character, I really want these. They should be here some time next week.

Well, rumor is that Hasbro is trying to crack down on the TRU's violation of their street date. So, these figures may not be seen in the wild again until the first week of August.

Went to my local Toys R Us last night... Picked up two figures from the Vintage Collection, the Cloud Car Pilot and Hoth Princess Leia... All of the vintage collection were almost gone... They also had one full peg of the Saga Legends figures (didn't buy any YET)...

I wish that I had more money at the time, I would have bought the Cloud Car vehicle aswell and some more of the new figures...

OH! All the STAR WARS in my TRU were buy one get one 50% off!!!! I got two of TVC figures fo $15.00 (regular retail for one figure was $9.99)...
Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Finally got to my TRU and it was all picked over already so I didn't get anything. Looked like wave 1, but everything they had were recards and I already had them.

My wave 1 vintage are on there way, saw a few at a local TRU, the C3PO is really a disapointment, the card backs look pretty cheap to me.
