The best (and most frustrating) thing about that picture is that if you look closely you can see they actually have the TCW Wave 2 figures on the pegs.

NINE freaking Walmarts here and they can't find a box of these between them to put out.

That's a beautiful picture though.

I definitely think that the upcoming live action TV show will help the longevity of these toys.

Yeah, that's been pushed off the schedule indefinitely now. It may never happen.

TCW or Bust!

Took a short road trip to a previously unvisited K-Mart in Chester, VA. Zowie - nicest K-Mart I have ever stepped foot into...clean, well lit, nicely organized. Quite a shock.

Anyway, they were ahead of the curve compared to every other K-Mart around here. I finally picked up my Jodo Kast, along with the Commando Squad exclusive.

It's a pretty sweet figure. Glad to have this off my list.

It's a better likeness than anything else I've seen them trawl out recently.

Plus I'm a big fan of the Daily Show.

Imagine what that thing would go for on eBay!

Still no sign of TCW Wave 2 here, not even remnants.

Saw another Obi-Wan w/side-car at a far away TRU, but once again - no Mandalorian w/Speeder. Do I really just keep missing this or is Obi part of some weird case assortment revision?

Finally hit paydirt at a heretofore unvisited K-Mart about 25 minutes out of town. Snagged both a minty Jodo Kast as well as the Commando Squad exclusive. YESSSSSS!  ;D

I'll have to look closer, but the Clone Pilot and ARF Trooper appear to have slightly different paint apps from what I recall on the carded figures. Either way, I felt good about picking this up.

So I went to every Walmart in a 40 mile radius this past weekend looking for these, and NO ONE had this wave out yet. Which confounds me because so many other people have posted about finding them on here.

Has anyone seen this wave anyplace OTHER than Walmart?

Has anyone spotted this wave on the East Coast yet?

For those who have seen it, did Wally stock them right out of the gate or did they wait for the TCW Wave 1 to sell through completely?

Not a single store around here has re-stocked since the 8/6 reset, so it could be a long wait, I fear.

Am I the only one pissed that this isn't for sale?

Well, I feel somewhat placated at least...this was a lot more of what I was expecting out of SDCC. Got sneak peeks at Cato, Undead Geonosian, and the HMP, plus a few new surprises like the Jedi Turbo Speeder and that Droid Tri-Ship. (Why is no one talking about thing? It is monstrously I to assume this was already released years ago with some kind of different paint job? It looks all new to my eyes)

I wonder how long it will actually take the Slave 1 to hit here on the East Coast, we seem to be several weeks behind the rest of the country.

F'ing amazing, maybe even topping the Embo wave. Cato is MARVELOUS.

Great, great stuff...the Zombie Geonosian even comes with detachable limbs!

I also think it's funny that they went out of their way to NOT show Quinlan Vos. Yes, Virginia, there IS a CW37 figure...

Super cool, and kudos to them for keeping something under wraps til now.

Now then, new thread for the Droid Tri-fighter?  ;D

Will it keep creeping up?  I don't know.  Maybe it's at what it's at for good?  This is 100% WM though...  They set the prices.  Hasbro set the minimum and WM is apparantly raising it.  *shrugs*  I don't see where anyone could possibly question this, unless Hasbro came out and said, "oh by the way, we made WM pay more for it".

I honestly don't care either way as this is an item I have zero interest in purchasing, the thing that gets me is that I have seen displays for $38.88 and $34.97 at 2 different Walmarts less than 20 miles apart. I mean, they can't even be consistent with the pricing in the same zip code?

These have finally shown up - at $17.99 each. :o That's just plain absurd, especially for 2 repacks of considerably easy-to-get figures.

Let me guess - Arizona?


You can't cross the border without a frigging green card, but all the new toys seem to make it through just fine.

How 'bout some East Coast love, fellas?

Ordered, 1 set w/promocode COMIC2010 - total $21.49. Much cheaper than I would have paid on eBay.

had great luck with my last order from HTS...could be here as soon as Saturday. Monday for sure. Aw yeah!

Duh...of course! Thanks Jeff, I already bought this thing so it's completely off my radar.

So I hit up a Walmart earlier today looking for TCW Wave 2. (Utter failure - none are on the pegs here yet) One of the ones I hit was in the process of resetting. They had all new planograms up dated 8/9 showing the new SW section layout. No new figs, but there was a case of the new vehicles and the newest BP's out.

Weirdest thing though - they had a shelf tag for a SW vehicle listed for $59.97. I checked and the tag was dated 8/10, and the planogram confirmed there was some sort of designated space for a new vehicle, right next to the AT-AT.

I cannot fathom what they would stick there though - there is nothing on the horizon that I can think of at that price, unless they are planning to reship some ARC's or Y-Wings, but I've heard nothing about that.

Needless to say, I'll be checking back there this weekend out of sheer curiosity.
