Yeah, that was painful to watch...I literally was worried he was going to keel over right there on stage. Who thought that was a good idea?

You guys that are finding these at Target and TRU: where are you geographically?

I live in Virginia and I have found 1 case at Target but so far no sightings at TRU here, although they get 3 trucks this week starting today so I'm curious if their arrival is imminent there too...

OMG, I had no idea you were linking to a Baby Metal video, you may have to change the title of the thread now to "Insanely Awesome **** frm the Internet"!  :D

I am a HUGE fan, there is nothing else like them out there anywhere. Just a crazy mash-up of everything I love - brutal guitar-shredding metal, cosplay, etc. I've always been super into Jap rock like Melt Banana and Super Junky Munky and this bunch just takes it to the next level.

Cannot wait for the triumphant US tour!

Saw this wave for the first time. Of course no Stormtrooper but I picked up Luke. I feel that he is a short on the accessories compared to wave 1.

Yeah, I have to agree...and Obi-Wan is even weaker, just the lightsaber. Definitely feels like skimping compared to Han, Sandy, etc.

Got my order from HTS today and the paint apps were a marked improvement over the ones I saw at Target. Still can't seem to get Obi-Wan's eyebrows right for some reason though.

Saw another full case of this wave at Target today, including my first ever sighting of Plagueis on the pegs. Better late than never!

I agreed with the peeps on TD who postulated that the source of the fire was the moonshine cabin Daryl and Beth set ablaze. Also raises the interesting question of timelines. I suspect they may suprise us by the end of the season when they start to reintegrate the groups, as far as how long some of them have been out there. This makes sense also because otherwise it seems like they would eventually be running into each other walking the same set of tracks.

Ugh... brutal, brutal episode. So well done though, great acting by Melissa McBride. The kids on this show do such a great job too.

Pretty much knew it had to end that way with Lizzie, though I did not see that bit coming with Mika, super sad. Very Old Yeller at the end there, good for Carol taking care of the dirty work. Loved how they handled the confession scene with Tyreese, she just seemed totally spent and ready to die. They actually had me wondering at the end there too. Good way to wrap that up.

Next week looks awesome...

I am thinking it is about time she came clean with Tyreese tonight about the whole Karen thing. Time to put that to bed. Then again, as far as she knows, everyone else who knows about that is dead, so maybe she figures what's the point.

Congrats on finding these at retail dude, but you might want to broaden your horizons a bit.  If finding new 6" figures was truly your best morning ever and you're that concerned about being the first to report a find, you might be a little too obsessed.  Just sayin'.

Seriously? Not sure why you would feel the need to post something like that, I was just trying to be helpful by passing along some information that some people may have found useful.

"Best ___ ever" is a common expression and I am pretty sure 99.9% of people are astute enough to not take that literally.

My point about the store report was not some inane "hey look at me" self-wank, it was intended as an example of irony as I personally have been really diligent about looking for the first Target sightings to be reported online and as luck would have it I was the first one to stumble across them it would seem. I'm not looking for cheap applause here.

Sorry if I offended anyone, feel free to ignore my posts in the future.

Back on topic, I hit several other Targets this morning and did not see any other new cases of Wave 1 out and about yet, so I must have caught an early re-stock at the store yesterday.

This wave suddenly started showing up at Targets around here today, I saw a whole case minus Plagueis near work and my buddy across town saw all of them at a store near him.

Best morning ever! On the way in to work I happened to stop by a Target that is usually pretty consistent about stocking new stuff on Fridays. There was nothing new on the pegs but as I was exiting the toy section I spied a pallet of still unopened boxes and as luck would have it, one of them said "SW 6 in W 1 14" so with breathless excitement I ripped that box open right there on the spot, at first only seeing Han's extra hands, but then lo and behold STORMTROOPER!  :D

I went ahead and snagged Luke and Obi-Wan too in case I need to swap out the ones I ordered from HTS for better paint apps. My stormy looks a little wonky around the eyes too, so I may hold off on opening that if I can find a better one. (Hey, it could happen!)

Every night I go home and read all the SW forums for the first confirmed Target brick and mortar sighting of these, and lo and behold I end up being the one to break the news. (Mods feel free to run with this)

Happy hunting people!

Used SPRING14 promocode at HTS tonight to score Bespin Luke and Obi-Wan for $15.99 each, plus free shipping.  8)

I'm just tired of waiting for these to hit Target and I know I'll never get to TRU early enough to score their random 1 case when it arrives. This seemed like too good a deal to pass up. Now I just need that $%* Stormtrooper!

Finally got lucky and snagged Cherno Alpha from when he was in stock today, and by using that 20% off coupon included with their spring catalog it brought the price down to a more palatable $19.99. Happy to be done with the wave, although now that I've ordered them all online I'll probably see the lot this weekend at TRU. Would be fine with me, I would't mind an extra Cherno to open.

Got my Battle-Damage Knifehead today, and although I really like the re-sculpt, the whole "battle damaged" aspect really didn't come out as well as the promotional shots had me hoping. There's really no glowy. translucent effect with the blood nor any actual sculpted wounds that I can see. Just kinda looks like they slapped some dull blue paint on there and called it a day. For $30, I expected better I guess.

Frigging TRU put Cherno Alpha up on their site for $3 more than Coyote Tango - WTF? To top it off he's never even in stock to order, I got an email notification this afternoon that he was back in but by the time I logged on after work it was already sold out again. Looks like I will have to keep stalking the local store to nab this guy...

Smash - sorry, no extras on Crimson Typhoon, but who knows, they may end up re-doing him too.

I'm wondering now if any of the people from Daryl's new group were in the house with Rick a few episodes back??

On TD, I literally did not even recognize the woman who played Sasha. She looked amazing, totally transformed.
