Sandtrooper Spotlight: Phenix Soars Sky High!
Showing what we have had for a decade strong!While I'd like to say it is another Sandwatch Sneak Peek, what you are seeing is a custom figure of myself in my TD 7306 "battle armor"! Our own Walt "Phenix" Crowley has done up a custom that is no doubt among a select group of favorite items in my collection. For full-sized photos of front and back check out the thread in our community forums, but I'm not sure if he's taking requests. Your gift is appreciated, and I am truly humbled by your kindness.

Dewback Patrol: George Lucas in the Windy City... Again!
The Big G back in town again!It was a great night for Star Wars once again in the Windy City as George Lucas was in town to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Empire Strikes Back with a screening at the Field Museum in Chicago, IL. For a fast two hundred dollars, fans could take part in a pre-screening reception with George Lucas himself. As much as I would have enjoyed hanging out with my favorite ka-jillionaire for the third time, I wasn't able to attend. However I'd like to credit Karen Bean of the Field Museum for the photos from the event and thank her for sending them our way to share with you Troopers.

More clutter for the pegs!It was just a few days ago we posted a gallery of 2010 Legends, but that isn't the last you'll see from your favorite peg-clogging line. In fact, they've got the Clone Wars in on it too, maybe even before some of us have the previous versions in their collections! Is the line really for getting those hard to find figures in the hands of collectors? Or am I seeing some of the same figures again, again and again?

Area Report: Price Drop & Error?
Back in the Hunt!Dad and I stopped in at Wal-Mart on the way home from my brothers house and they have ROLLED BACK the price on Basic Star Wars Figures. They are $4.50 each! I picked up two of the Stormtroopers. At this price I hope to find some Gungan Warriors. Also, sure if someone returned the wrong figure to the wrong store or what but today when I was at Wal-Mart I spotted the Bespin Wing Guard (Alien Guy Variant) from the Toys-R-Us Expanded Universe wave that is susposed to only be at Toys-R-Us!?! I took a quick picture of it with my phone. I bought this figure and it rang up $6.00. No other figures from the EU wave were found.

Sandtrooper dustrho Reporting In:
S.C.A.L.P. Weapons SupplierHey troopers! It's been a while for me, but there's usually nothing for me to report on since the stores in my area typically don't have anything "new" in stock. Today was a bit different at the Walmart in Oswego, IL, as they had several new figures on the pegs. I was able to pick up Anakin Skywalker & Obi-Wan Kenobi in snow gear (Clone Wars), Commander Bly and Commander Stone. The only vehicle in the area were a bunch of Vulture Droids, and I won't buy those until they go on clearance. Not much else, but being able find anything new in my area is a win to me.

Sandtrooper Young George Lucas Reports:
Goin Old School!"Hey, folks. Young George Lucas reporting from the Kansas City area. Not a whole lot going on here--no final wave of Legacy (that I've seen anyway). I did pick up the (overpriced) TR'U TIE Interceptor, but it is really cool. The "Sith" wave was scare here, but at some of the Kohls stores you can still find one or two (on beat up cards). Since there is not much new here, I decided to include a photo of one of my favorite STAR WARS items from my collection. It is the "Unleashed" Han Solo, and is really one of my faves. My preferance is for real "movie accurate" items, and this definitely falls into that category as Han Solo is running up the boarding ramp of the Millennium Falcon looking back as he is firing his blaster! The sculpt and pose are awesome, and as good as anything McFarlane Toys has done. Most of the other "Unleashed" figures were more done with a lot more artistic license and look kind of..weird (like the "Dancin' Darth Maul"). I wish they had done more like this one."

Area Report: Any not an EU Figure in Sight!
On the Hunt!It is hard to believe the month of May is upon us, and with more at stake on Saturday morning than Free Comic Book Day, my young recruit and I set out to our local Toys R Us with hope we'd find an end cap loaded with even a couple of the final wave of 2009 figures. However when we arrived, we only found set number one of the Force Unleashed packs, and slim pickings of the Empire Strikes Back wave. We did take advantage of the sale to fill in some of the holes in my son's collection, and it was a bit of a let down to not see the display set up. Hopefully I'll be able to scout a few more locations later this week, and if it's been too long hopefully some of you Troopers will let us know what you are finding in your searches.
