Just picked up Hoth Han+Luke and R2+Yoda Mission Series on Rebels cards at my local Barnes and Noble. They charged $9.99 and I got a 10% member discount. Not too bad considering what TRU and Target are charging these days.

Congrats! One of my local Walgreens stores had the Hoth Luke and Han 2-pack last week but they wanted about $11.99 for it (I already have it, though, so I wouldn't have bought another one anyways) and I haven't seen that many Mission Series Wave 2 or 3 sets in local stores in more than a few weeks.

Seems like Walmart hasn't bothered with much of the Mission Series line past the Wave 1 assortment.

My local Walmart had pretty decent stock of the Rebels Saga Legends line, including Pilot Luke, Bespin Han, Jabba's Palace Lando, Stormtrooper, The Inquisitor, Kanan, Ezra, and all of the Mission Series sets excluding Hera and Sabine. Ended up picking up a Bespin Han at 6.87+tax, not sure if I want to keep him as is or customize him to weather his clothes slightly and add some highlights to his hair, to have him fit better with modern SA figures. I'm actually pretty happy with the sculpt though, for a cheap figure.

My local stores have been out of most 3.75" Rebels/Saga Legends and Mission Series figures for at least a few weeks. I still see the occasional Zeb/Stormtrooper and R2-D2/C-3PO sets and the Endor Luke and Leia figures were still hanging at TRU, but I imagine a lot of people probably don't want to pay $9.99 for one 5-POA figure even if it is from the newest and the last wave.

The only store really getting in jack in my area over the last month for action figures (or last two years) is Toys"R"us.

Anyways, I've been trying to keep my eyes peeled for a well-painted Leia from the Mission Series. I kind of like the look of the figure, but from the couple dozen Leia's that I've seen, most have poorly painted eyes or sloppy hair.

Today at TRU, I saw they had restocked these again...

...and bingo! I finally found one that I considered acceptable.

It's pretty sad though when the above figure is the BEST one I've seen so far. Just a couple years ago, I'd consider that a bad paint app. It's unbelievable how far Hasbro has lowered the bar on their product.

That's about the same level of quality on my copy of her. It was plenty good enough for when I found her and for the Mission Series line, but had she been a Vintage Collection or even Legacy Collection Princess Leia figure those paint apps would have been unacceptable. Congrats on finding one that you actually like!

Found the whole Sabine wave at a local Kohl's. They had both variants of Sabine there. I'd love to get her if there were more than 5poa, removable helmet and a straightened hip stance than the one they have her in.

Congrats! I have yet to see any Sabine figures on the pegs of any brick-and-mortar store in my area.

Hey if anyone is in need of the Imperial Troop Transport. Start checking Mashells and TJ Maxx. I found 2 at both stores over the weekend for 19.99. If anyone needs one I picked an extra one.

It'd be nice to find the AT-DP with driver there... I don't think anyone will find it at Target (I believe someone said they've been found in CA a while back but haven't heard any more reports).

I've never seen the Target-exclusive AT-DP with the Driver figure in my own area.

Edwardsville Walmart has clearanced the entire SW section. Not seen was also the deluxe 6 inch figures for $30.

At least your Walmart carries the 3.75" Rebels ships and vehicles. My own stores haven't bothered with anything other than the Jedi Starfighter and Slave I repacks in the new boxes.

Same situation here Jodo, the Walmart in Arnold has everything on clearance (except 3.75 black series, which they have no stock of and never do). Saw the same thing at the Walmart down in the Lake of the Ozarks this week.

If Walmart had some of Wave 2 of Mission Series with Sabine's 2-pack and the Biker Scout that would be a reason to get excited over $7.00 Mission Series sets, but most of what my stores appear to have are the TIE Pilot and Stormtrooper and the Cadet Ezra/Kanan set.
