I've seen the latest wave too, the TIE Pilot and stuff.  Is Rey repacked in there because I see her/BB8 a bit too.  Not a ton, but she's popping back up locally.

Yes, she is re-packed in Wave 3 too. It is a slightly upgraded version from the previous release as I understand it. Very minor differences mostly. The repacked Kylo is a lot different...I posted about him in the Wave 3 thread.

I ship Priority about half the time, which comes with $50 insurance, but I don't think this was one of those, unfortunately. I heard back from him again last night and I guess he is saying now that the figures themselves arrived damaged. He included a couple of pictures but I have no way of knowing whether he did that himself or it actually happened in transit. I know they did not leave my hands like that. I offered to give him a 25% refund and let him keep the figures so we'll see what happens. I'm pretty sure he is not going to play ball though.

Well, after umpteen sales transactions without a hitch, I finally ran into a problem buyer. I sold some loose figures along with their original packaging, and mentioned clearly in the listing that I would be shipping them in their original packaging. I guess they got jostled around in shipping and were all askew in the inner clam shell. He somehow interprets this as the items bring in bad condition.  ::) never mind that both the figures themselves, as well as the packaging are both totally undamaged. Dude wants a full refund plus me to foot the bill for his return shipping.

Praying I can talk my way out of this one but I'm expecting pain.  :(

This wave is now showing up at Walmart on the East Coast...

A friend in FL picked up a Poe and unmasked Kylo for me. I'm still debating how much I really want to pay $30 for a tiny light saber.  :-\

I finally found the last two things I was looking for - a Hux with good eyes and the variant unpainted neck Snowtrooper. Completeness!  ;D

SW 6" stuff is on clearance at Gamestop now...I picked up a Han/Tauntaun and Speeder Bike Deluxe set for $15 each. Hard to resist at that price!

Looks like all the WD building sets have gone on clearance at Target and Walmart. I picked up a few more prison cells for $6.48, and Dale's RV for an astounding $14.98!

Looking forward to starting a cool diorama with all these next this year.

Made a flurry of toy runs the past 2 days in the hopes of finding another Snowtrooper and a Hux with better eyes. Ended up finding (and buying) another TIE Pilot, another Asty, and 2 more Shocktroopers. I finally did find a lone Snowtrooper on the pegs at Walmart too, so that was nice.

Apparently there is an "unpainted neck" Snowtrooper variant I need to track down now as well. Both of mine have the proper painted neck.   :P

I finally found this whole wave today after work.  :) I only grabbed the 3 from the new movie, but the paint apps were all spot on I'm happy to say. And they look great!

Just when I'd moved on and decided not to worry about these, I wandered into a TRU last night and found all three of them.  They had a few of each.  I'm perfectly happy picking up exclusives at normal retail prices.

Awesome Rob, glad you found these!

I finally caved and picked up the Rocky Horror figures off eBay for $9 apiece shipped. The only one not available was Frank, so I went onto Gamestop's website and found one at a local store they are now holding for me.  ;D

Curious now if/when we will get a whiff of any new product from these guys in 2016.

Lemmy of Motorhead  Ace of Spades!

Holy ****! How did I miss this? Should have been front page news everywhere!

Although I was never keen on his fondness for Nazi memorabilia, his contributions to metal are undeniable. Eat the rich!

I found the Hux/Asty/Snowtrooper Wave today too - at Walmart. I was beginning to think we were in some kind of weird toy vortex here, since everywhere else seemed to be getting these at the same time. I really like Asty, the Snowtrooper is sort of meh after getting the TRU exclusive, and Hux' face is just plain weird.

Been a busy few weeks for this line - I love it though!

I saw this Yakface FB post about the 6" scale Special Forces TIE Fighter being on sale at Target stores for $49.09.  Has anyone here been able to get that deal?  I hope it's a widespread sale, and reports from numerous stores would certainly be encouraging.

There is no sign of that sale anywhere around here. And I have been looking everywhere  >:(

I wish they would honor their other stores' clearance sales.
