I snagged Han and Lando from Solo for $4.50 each at walmart! They also had Q'ira and Rey, but I left them. Checked around some other walmarts and they are still sitting at around $17 on average. I'll keep and eye out for price drops since I like the looks of the Death Star Trooper I have seen at a few locations.

Fruitful hunt during lunch today, especially since they were improperly price marked :) Now after the elusive Boba Fett to complete this wave!

I still haven't seen Boba Fett at retail but I got mine on Amazon for 19.99. They change the prices quite often on new figures and I've gotten in the habit of checking throughout the day. Yesterday Luke was 19.99 for about an hour and the day before it was IG-88.

Found Archive!Luke at Target. He was the only Archive figure on the pegs.

A lot of the figures were Jyns and Cassians in beaten up boxes. Obviously purchased for next to nothing from Five Below and "returned" to Target for full price. And, of course, not a single Gamorrean, despite there being a space for them. It's infuriating. Although Moloch seems to be selling well, if nothing else; there was only one left on the shelf.

Picked up an Archive IG-88 at Wal Mart. I had to get him to replace my original one. The bottom legs got warped (probably from being stored in a box for a couple of months when I didn't have them on display). The Archive version has no problem standing on his own. It seems like the legs are more sturdy. The deco is nice too. They one major difference that I could see on the two versions (and maybe it's just on mine) is that on the Archive version only the left arm bends at the elbow where the original bends at the elbow on both arms.

Fun Fact-I got my original IG-88 right here on Yakface. I won him for Yakfinities #56 Rebel Militia. :)

Our Archive IG-88 has elbow joints in both arms. Are you sure it's not stuck, or super tight joint? Here is a review we did on ours. https://youtu.be/6hxEIKEnEdk

I found Luke & Boba Fett at Wal-Mart. Not all Walmart stores have them hanging on pegs, be sure to check the bottom shelf. I almost overlooked them, because I focused on the pegs.

I saw a bunch of Archive figures at a Target on Friday. I looked at Iggy since it's a nice paint job and I heard that he can stand on his own, but I put him back since I don't need to get another Iggy for $20 and I use stands to keep the other up.

Finally scored a Boba Archive, corner slightly bent, oh well. I'll exchange it when a better card is found!

I picked up the Mimban Stormtrooper today. I only have seen him once and that was just before Christmas. I passed back then because I wasn't collecting any Solo characters. Today I had a chance of mind :)

Saw more Mimban Stormtroopers this morning as well.

Fenton, MO Walmart. I didn't pick any up. They had 6-8 in total, I didn't count.

Just snapped a pic and sadly stared at the overload of Wave 1 TVC before I left and headed into work.

:wink:

I tried the right arm again and discovered it was just super tight. I applied pressure on it and was sure it was going to snap and then it just loosened up and now doesn't have any problems bending. Thanks for the advice
