Look Who Scored Republic Commando Boss

After six months of seeing the exact same figures, in the exact same peg spot, finally, finally, our local Wal-Mart had some of the wave 2 Clone Wars figures.

And sitting up front and center the only figure of the Clone Wars series that we've been interested in, Republic Commando Boss.

Joining the only Boss figure, was a single Aayla Secura, and Captain Rex. Though this may not seem like a big deal to some, to many of us who scour the toy shelves every chance we get, this is a pretty big deal.

Upon the search also came across two figures that were very disappointing; on Darth Maul cards, there were Saga Legends figures, Darth Vader and Phantom Menace Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Not a fan of these figures. Their big feature is that you press on the center of their belt and the lightsaber, which is built into their hand, lights up. The lightsaber being built in not only removes the availability of articulation in that arm, but also limits what you can do with the figure since you can't remove it either. Built in lightsabers wasn't a popular idea when Kenner did it with the very first wave of Star Wars figures, and it's not a popular one today.
