Vintage Wave 4 Resurfacing at Wal-Mart

The 4th wave in The Vintage Collection never seemed to reach full distribution, but some cases now appears to be making their way through the pipeline finally.  Our friends at Jeditemplearchives are reporting sightings of this wave at Wal-Mart, and I saw the same thing today at a St. Louis area Wal-Mart.

So if you’re in the hunt for any of these figures still (and some are really good), keep your eyes open for this wave.

And remember to keep sharing details of your Recent Acquisitions in the forums!

Forum Poll – Discover The Force

With each passing week, we’re inching closer to the new Wal-Mart exclusive Discover the Force line being released, which to the delight of collectors has several all new sculpts included in it.

This wave is tied to The Phantom Menace promotion, and we’re curious to see what figure is the most anticipated by Yakface readers.

If you’re registered in our forums (and why wouldn’t you be by now?) cast your vote and share your thoughts after the jump!

Wave 9 Hitting Hard at Walmart

This morning I found the mother lode of Vintage Wave 9 (6 cases worth) at my local Walmart. This store typically is very slow for new merchandise so it just emphasizes the point that you need to check your stores consistently, even the bad ones, it will eventually pay off.

If that is little comfort, fear not, we are going to be giving away a Vintage Collection Bastila Shan, Walrus Man and Rebel Soldier on facebook. Watch for details this Friday!
