I recently went on a toy run to two diffrent Targets. I was excited to see, as I eyed it from a distance, fully-stocked pegs, but as I approached I noticed it was the same ol-same ol we’ve been seeing lately. Lots of Biggs, pilot Hans and Galactic Marines. Suprisingly, the Airborne Trooper has seemidly joined the ranks of the pegwarmers. I counted about four of them.

I was also suprised to see a McChewie. I already have one, so I left if for someone else. I did manage to pick up a Stormtrooper, which at the time I thought was rare.

So I go to the next Target, and they have pretty much the same assortment of wave 2 and 3 figures. They did, however, have nearly five “rare” stormtroopers. I’m not sure if it was a huge stike of luck to find that many, or if they are just sitting around, but I kicked myself for not buying the McChewie.

It seems that this will be a good year for you army builders! There seem to be many Saga Legends Ep 1 and 2 clones on the pegs, as well as Galactic Marines, Airborne Troopers and Stormtroopers. Maybe the clone craze has come to an end. Good hunting!
