Our friends at Jedi Temple Archives have received photographic evidence that Jango Fett has been upgraded to the “as advertised” TAC #57 sculpt. Prior versions utilized the 2002 Saga #13 Jango sculpt. Head on over to JTA for a closer look.
Update: It looks like this piece wasn’t found in the US (yet) but in Australia. Hopefully we’ll see it here soon.

Yakface Forum Member “Grimace” scored new Clone Wars figures from wave 3 today at his local Toys “R” Us. Wave 3 consists of Ki-Adi Mundi, Flamethrower Clone Trooper and Clone Pilot “Goji”. Nice find!
Upon visiting my local Toys”R”Us today, I managed to take a peek at the planogram been used to reset the aisle and it indicates that the exclusive Clone Wars Nikto Guard (Puko Naga) is part of this reset and should be hitting stores in the next few days.
Some Wal-Marts are now slashing prices significantly on old Legacy product, including their exclusive Comic Packs which have been found in the $5.00 range. Thanks to DarthSinizter for the heads up.

Your mileage may vary, but at least one St. Louis area Target (Kirkwood) has fully stocked the new figures as of today… Vintage, Clone Wars, Legends, Battle Packs, Mid-Size Vehicles, and even AT-ATs.
It might be worth your while to see if your local Target has done the same – good luck Yakkers!
