Does it strike anyone else as odd that this wave has never made it to K-Mart or Walgreen's? Those have both been great "go-to" spots for this line...seems odd to me.

I finally got Bossk from a fellow collector, what a fantastic figure.

Saw some Gypsy Dangers at Walmart this morning for the first time. (by the trading cards) Well done, Neca!

Safe to say at this point the line is done?

Very surprised these did not do better saleswise. Seems like if there was going to be a third wave we would have gotten details by now, especially with the show about to premier.

Holy ****, I loved that guy! I always remember him best from those Philo Beddoe movies. I had no idea he was Juliette Lewis' father!

How are you guys finding all these Jedi Temple Guards?  I haven't seen a single one.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat with 6" Bossk. I keep missing him everywhere I go.

You basically have to luck out and get there right when a new case is put out. The JTG's are always the first to go, seems like.

Picked up a couple more Jedi Temple Guards at Kroger yesterday as part of my weekly grocery shopping. Nice to see them getting in some new stuff...wish they had the new 6" guys too.

Are you Kohls toy isles look like a tornado went though? I sware they just dump toys on the shelves or the ground when they restock. Half the stuff is out of its package. It's like they just make a pile of toys and the moms just say dive in kid!

No star wars figures found there except 12".
Yes, absolutely...the one where I found these was a complete wreck earlier in the week, but apparently they went through and cleaned it up when they put the new figure packs out. Good luck!

Hit the jackpot at Kohl's today...looked like they finally spruced up the toy aisle in time for Easter. They had a whole little display pallet of Rebels 2-packs on the shelf. All the Sabine 2-packs looked to be the variant version, so I was super happy to scratch that one off my list.  :)

I finally lucked out and found Han in Stormtrooper disguise at Walmart yesterday. Looks like they got two cases, but again, no Bossks. Why does a dude like that fly off the shelves but you can't move Greedo? (Rhetorical)

The Hunt continues...

I found a big cardboard display of the mission series figures at the local Kohls.  They are supposed to have a dedicated endcap for all the Rebels stuff, so worth a shot if you're looking for these.  My store had the Sabine/Wookies wave.  Only downside is that the figures are $15.  :o

I am burning through some gas going back and forth between the 3 Kohl's in town trying to find that #$%^&* Sabine variant.

NONE of them are stocking any 4" SW figures, not even crappy old ones. All they have are those 12" ones.

I did see a huge standalone Avengers display though, with all the newest MU waves. So I guess they got all the love around here. :(

No one noticed a gigantic missing aircraft carrier?

Or all the people manning it?

For the past six months?

I got my two ITT's from HTS today, so I finally cracked one open. After applying the 85 tiny stickers I think I am done.  ::)

I'm glad they made this thing, but no question it could have been done better. I do like that they made room for 3 extra figures inside. I'm glad now I kept buying extra stormies...I have a full complement in transit.

I picked up Carl tonight thanks to the Find In Store feature on Gamestop's website. Man, if Target and TRU had inventory updates that accurate on their websites it would change my freaking life.

Toss-up between the can of pudding and the can of Cheez Whiz for Best Accessory of this wave.  ;D

  I wonder though if the leader of the Wolves is the guy that Aaron was talking about with Darryl (Davidson if remember correctly?).  I can't see why they would have "named" him during that part of the discussion if he wasn't going to come back and haunt the Alexandrites.

I though that initially as well, but they seemed to strongly imply the Wolves only learned about the Safe Zone after recovering Aaron's backpack and looking through the photos. I think they said as much on TD. The exiled guy would have known about it all along.

Fresh off the season finale, Series 7 is out!!!  ;D

I picked up Michonne, Gareth, and the Mud Walker at Gamestop today over lunch. No sign of Carl, oddly.

Price has gone up to $14.99, ouch.

Still, great to have new figures and glad they got them out to capitalize on the finale hype.
