I believe the Ezra variant is actually between the 3-pack version and the Wave 1 figure. There is nothing different about the Wave 3 figure itself except for the date stamp/COO.

Ok - thanks - I saw the pic on Yakface with the three figures, I saw it quick during my lunch hour yesterday and didn't look at it in detail - I see now it's just that the date timestamp is now in black instead of white... oh well...

Pulled the trigger on the SHIELD Helicarrier along with all the stuff I'll need to add power functions to the model this past weekend when the double VIP points started. Should give me a nice discount on the UCS TIE that comes out in a month and a half.

Can't wait to get this behemoth and put it together.

I also picked up off of eBay the following older sets:
Wolverine's Chopper Showdown
Spider-Man's Doc Ock Ambush
Hulk Mini Figure Polybag
Iron Patriot Mini Figure Polybag
Hulk's Helicarrier Breakout

I'm trying to score the SDCC Rocket Raccoon Warbird set, but so far no luck. I might pick up one of those parts sets with instructions and call it a day instead...

I'm trying to get down to just needing the sets that haven't been released yet AND the SDCC minifigures from 2012 (Black Suite Spider-man and Phoenix) and 2013 (Spider-Woman & Andrew Garfield Spider-Man) and the Iron Man/Captain American 2-pack from Toy Fair 2012. I'll probably never get those six mini-figures, but I'm okay with that, I can't justify dropping $200 for a single mini fig.  :(

I'll double check the spare I have from my Wave 3 case - but I may have one available as well. In addition to the Wave 3 Ezra Variant, which apparently has a slight variation on the logo on the back of his vest, I haven't opened one yet to know for sure...

Got my Wave 3 case with Bespin Han, X-Wing Luke & Skiff Guard Lando.

I had always planned on keeping the Stormtroopers - but I think I'm going to keep at least one each of the Ezra and Inquisitor figures for the packaging variants. I wouldn't have actively sought this out, but since I bought the case, and I have them on-hand, it makes it "easy" to keep 'em.

Nice grabs Pete!  If you're looking to sell off any of those Jedi Temple Guards, please hit me up.

Unfortunately, those are all for my "squad" of Jedi Temple Guards. I used to build squads of as many as 8 figures, but over the past few years, I've dwindled it down to 4 - mostly cause you never know when they might re-release/update the character.

I will keep an eye out for more in my travels and if I come across any, I'll pick 'em up and let you know.

I'd like to score a few more AT-DP drivers, but otherwise, I'm done with these waves.

Picked up three of the movie sets today - Hulk Buster Smash, Avengers Hydra Showdown and Hydra Fortress Smash.

The Toys R Us where I found them had all of the other sets as well, but I want to hold back on some sets until June pending the Winter Soldier polybag promo that is rumored to be coming...

Picked up the following sets at my local Target this weekend:

Hailfire Droid
Senate Commando Troopers
Geonosis Troopers

That leaves me with just the Wookie Gunship, Battle Droid Troop Carrier and the TIE Advanced Prototype Polybag for 2015 Star Wars sets released so far.

I was hoping that the UCS TIE Fighter was coming out for May 4th - but it looks like that's not coming until August, so I'm probably going to hold off on the Wookie Gunship so I can have SOMETHING to buy on the 4th so I can secure the free polybagged figure - which is rumored to be Admiral Yularen. The Battle Droid Carrier would also be a great fall-back purchase, I could easily score extras of some of this year's Battle Packs to combine with a purchase of that set to reach $75 to get the free figure as well...

I guess the next Lego sets I'll be picking up will be the Marvel Super Heroes ones for Avengers 2... I'm sure they'll all be out WAY before May 4th.

Put together my UCS Slave I set today - great build, lots of interesting building techniques making it a fun/engaging build. Once it's together and in the stand, it is certainly an impressive addition to my Lego Star Wars collection.

I definitely recommend getting this set, especially if you don't already have a Lego version of this iconic vehicle.

In yet another failed attempt to find the TIE Advanced Polybag at Toys R Us - I ended up grabbing the T-16 Skyhopper set instead. Fun build

Hit a Toys R Us again in hopes of grabbing the TIE Advanced Prototype Polybag set - still no luck - picked up the new AAT set since it was the only set they had in stock that I hadn't grabbed yet...

Snagged a bunch of 2015 sets yesterday - drove to my local Lego Store to get...

UCS Slave I
TIE Advanced Prototype
Anakin's Custom Jedi Starfighter
Ezra's Speeder Bike
Shadow Troopers
Imperial Troop Transport
All 6 Series 2 Microfighters
Mini AT-DP (polybag)

Tried to find a Toys R Us with the Mini TIE Advanced polybag, but no luck...

Gonna hold back on a few sets so I have something to buy for the May The Fourth promotion which will be The Ep4 Yularen minifigure polybag.

They've all been pretty hard to come by in this area - so I pretty much snag it when I see it - this year the first place I saw it was Kmart and I had either $5 or $10 in Kmart rewards bucks that I used to get it - glad I did too, cause the only other place I saw it was Toys R Us and that was only once...

@Brian - I was able to score you a Rocket Polybag at the Toys R Us near where I work. PM me your address and I'll send it your way.

Interesting. The visuals look great, at least. Although the leaden use of pop music isn't doing it any favors. Yeesh.

Totally cringe-worthy - just that alone will be enough for parents to not even go near this and steer their kids away from it...
