I am really confused on the case assortments after Wave 1. I keep seeing people posting about finding the Asty/Plank wave but no one ever bothers to mention what other figures are in that wave, which I assume is Wave 2. Is that the same wave with the Ezra and Kanan repacks?

The Asty, Sarco Plank wave also has the repacks of Kanan, Ezra and the First Order Stormtrooper (with a new/different weapon part). It also contains a sorta repack of the First Order Snowtrooper (the "first" release is with the First Order Snowspeeder) but this version is not an officer. So the breakdown is:
  • 3 new TFA figs
  • 1 repack TFA fig
  • 2 repack Rebels figs

That wave is Wave 2 of the Snow/Desert figures...

The repackaged Inquisitor is part of Wave 2 of the Jungle/Space figures, that wave is:
  • Kylo Ren (repack with new build-a-weapon piece)
  • General Hux
  • Goss Toowers
  • PZ-4C0
  • Guavian Enforcer
  • The Inquisitor (Rebels figure repack)

As far as I know, when it comes to the Build-a-Weapon waves, this is all we know about right now...

Could be nothing, could just be a coincidence, but this version of the X-Wing is in an online WalMart commercial...

Just go to 7 seconds in and watch from there, it will cut to a Father and Son walking in a field and the kid is clearly holding the White/Blue version of the Hasbro X-Wing.

It's possible that Hasbro & Lego just sent WalMart a bunch of stuff for the commercials and it's an oversight, but it could mean that the White/Blue X-Wing is a WalMart exclusive.

The Kylo Ren/First Order Stormtrooper/ANH Princess Leia figure links no longer appear to be valid - maybe it wasn't intended to be up or was resulting in too many phone calls about the items.

Hopefully it doesn't mean that sales on the first wave haven't been "brisk" enough to warrant a 2nd wave.

Got mine yesterday! Thanks Paul!!!

Sorry, I may have misspoke. I don't collect the regular figures and its confusing because they all come with goofy pack ins now. I was referring to whichever line has Ezra in it in the next wave...maybe it is the basic figure line?

I heard they included his lightsaber for this release, so I really want that one. None of the Kohl's around here got them though.

Ok - yeah - Armor-up and Build-a-Weapon are two different price-points/sub-lines. I wish I had taken a better look at the Ezra I saw in person last night at Kohls - the ONLY figure I would have considered paying $11.99 for was the First Order Snowtrooper - so was disappointed that the only figure I found was the Ezra re-pack. If he does include his blaster/lightsaber combo weapon, that would make for a moderately compelling reason to buy this repack...

Edit: Swung by another Kohls on my way home from work tonight, the ONLY figure I would consider paying $11.99 would be the First Order Snowtrooper but alas, that figure always seems to be missing - did see Ezra, Kanan and Asty tonight though. Anyway - Ezra DOES INDEED feature a new accessory - his custom lightsaber! So that's a very cool addition and certainly makes buying this figure just to open to complete the build-a-weapon much more easier to swallow (although not by much)

Disappointing thst they don't have any of the Second wave of BS 6" figures, nor the second wave of Armor Up guys, nor the Mission Series 2-packs. All of that stuff has been found in stores already. Just not many. I would have bought all that...

Wait... I addition to Wave 2 of the Build-a-Weapon Jungle/Space/Desert/Snow figures there's already a second wave of the Armor-up figures? And they have been found? Who's in wave 2?

Grabbed the new TFA Falcon over the weekend from the local LEGO store to rack up some VIP points. Had a great convo with some of the employees about it too. They showed me the display model and talked about how fun it was to build, and actually showed me all of the differences when I said I thought it was the same as the last model from 2011.

Nice! Compared to customer support at, oh I dunno, say Toys R US this past weekend, my best Force Friday interactions were with the folks at my local Lego Store - happy to help, happy to talk Lego, etc... Lego certainly knows what it's doing when it comes to customer service IMHO.

The Grievous figure is AMAZING. I am holding off on getting more of these constructable figures because I'm thinking there may be promos between now and the movie coming out and I'm going to want to have Star Wars sets I need to still pick up - but I can't wait to see if Darth Vader is as good as the Grievous one.

Out of the mini-fig scale stuff, I've completed Kylo Ren's transport, the First Order Troop Transport, the First Order Snow Speeder and Rey's Speeder. Not disappointed in any of the sets so far, fun builds, unique/different designs from what we've gotten before in the Star Wars line, which is always welcome. I've put off the TIE, X-Wing and Falcon for last, gonna spread out when I put them together - but I think the X-Wing will be next...  ;D

Awesome! Good to know, it was the one constructible figure I bought on Friday!

Friday morning I was at my local Walmart and Target stores when they opened, neither was open at midnight.

Modest selection at both stores, but I wasn't blown away by quantities or anything.

I was shocked at how much extra "junk" is filling the Seasonal Section display at Target - and now even two days later all that stuff is STILL sitting there (no surprise really)

At Walmart, I grabbed:
1x Kylo Ren Armor-up
1x Finn Armor-up
1x Boba Fett Armor-up
1x Luke Armor-up
1x Kylo Ren Build-a-Weapon
1x Resistance Fighter
1x Rey Build-a-Weapon
2x First Order TIE Pilot

And then at Target I grabbed:
2x Poe Dameron's X-Wing
1x Finn's Desert Speeder
1x Kylo Ren (BAW)
1x Bespin Luke
1x Darth Vader
1x Finn Armor-up

On Saturday, I swung by Kmart, I had gotten an email that I had $3 in Shop Your Way rewards points if I spent $20 in toys, found:
1x First Order TIE Pilot
1x First Order Stormtrooper Armor-up

So I'm done with all of the Wave 1 figures and smaller vehicles. still need to get the Falcon (obviously). I keep hoping it will show up on so I can use the coupon towards it.

I went ahead and ordered cases of the 2-pack figures from EE just to get them out of the way - they indicate they're getting them this month so the wait shouldn't be too long.

Gotta find the WM Black Series wave 1 figures now and I'll be all set until the Wave 2 stuff starts hitting.

Wouldn't be surprised if a repaint of the First Order Speeder Bike was on the way as well.

I preordered two of these since the repaint looks okay and it nets me a variant trooper...  :-\

I'm a sucker. Had to pre-order.

Yeah, me too, preordered two of them. Like the design of the riot control First Order Stormtrooper.

Kinda wish Phasma wasn't in the box set, but oh well...

Do I need to make park runs for these?

This set includes 4 build-a-droid astromechs: R0-4LO, R2-Q2,  R4-M9 and R5-X3 all of which are said to be from The Force Awakens.

Any word on whether you can order this online? If not then yes please!  ;D

On the one I opened, the wings are pretty good. I had a hard time trying to squeeze the pack-in pilot into the two seater cockpit, so I tried the carded version of the pilot and that fit very well, so now I just have two of that version in the cockpit and the removeable helmet version standing next to the vehicle.

A lame compromise but at least there is A version of the First Order TIE Pilot that does fit.

Not that this is ideal, but I put the single carded Pilot Poe Dameron figure into the vehicle and I've left he removeable helmet version standing next to the ship. The single carded version of Poe in his flight suit fits extremely well into the vehicle.
