Still Need Tac Ops?


Recommended Posts

I went to a local mall today, expecting to check out the only local KB that was left open. Imagine my disappointment when I learned it was closed just like all the others around here. *sigh* The last glimmer of hope I had was remembering that in the past KB would set up a small toy section in Sears for the holiday season. Well, after rambling all over this huge mall today, I finally found Sears, and it seemed like in the furthest recesses of the store is where I found the toy section. And there was one small end-cap hidden in the back that had Star Wars figures. I was thrilled becuase I found Commander Bly (Yay!), the green Clone Commander, and the Wookie Commando, which to my surprise turned out to be very, very cool. I was under the impression from early pics that he was simply a repainted preview Wookie with a cloth tunic. Not so apparently. Now he may be a repainted Wookie Warrior, but man he's cool-looking. I was also lucky enough to pick up the Target exclusive Utapau Shadow Trooper. Woo-hoo!! And this is so strange to me, because I had no knowledge of this figure as far as I can remember until I saw jjlecaros's thread about those Shadow Trooper cases. (lol) Man this figure is sweet...


It's funny to, 'cause I was shopping at Target with my wife and my mom, and she wanted me to help pick out a Christmas gift from her to my older brother, who happens to also be a Star Wars collector like I am. And, of course, being the good brother I am, I grabbed him a Shadow Trooper too. But for his Christmas gift from our mom, I picked out the Lava Obi-Wan and Anakin figures, plus a pack of the Target exclusive figure protectors. Did I do okay? And...I have to admit; I really wanted those Lava figures. Is that bad, to lust over my brother's Christmas gift? (lol)
