Awesome to hear of new assortment break-downs again. Even better to get more solid conformation of new figures. Can't wait.

Same here in my closest store in Los Angeles. That Walmart has a toy manager who just phones it in and doesn't pay attention to their section. It's been like that for years. Plus, there's a Hot Wheels guy who still manages to pick through everything the moment it arrives at the store. The store has been fairly useless for the past 5 years.

I just order from Hasbro Toy Shop anymore. It's been more reliable with less hassle.

Just noticed this perusing the forms, but I have gotten two of the same hands when I ordered from one of the Hong Honk sellers like Scockery.

Anything to help us get to wave 4.

Regarding the TIE pilots, I'm happy that they're doing little deco changes with each release to add uniqueness, but I still would like to see a standard "Grunt" pilot back in the mix every now and then.

I was happy with most of the Vintage and Black Series product this year. Stand outs for me was anything Imperial, but one of my favorite figures was Vizam.

I cave and picked up the Luke and R2 from Amazon. Staying away from prequel figures.

I'm getting a case of these for sure but want extras of all of them. :/

Is there a case assortment for this wave yet?

It's actually broken into 6 different case assortments with with one new figure per case. The other 11 figures are Anakin from the first wave.

Just got 3 more. Probably need 16 even to have 2 x 8 man squads of those Utapau clones and RBDs.  The sandtroopers and TIE pilots are nothing to sneeze at either.

If I was still doing PT clone squads, I might have done the same. This is a near perfect army builders wave, but it's not enough to justify buying 9 or so for me.

I'm a little concerned about availability as well. Since I ordered all three wave on-line so far, I haven't had motivation to hit the stores, but my impression is that wave 2 is struggling to find its way to the shelves. I'm definitely a bargain hunter, but with the ease of ordering on line and having stuff shipped to my door is by far outweighing the hassle of hunting, gas, car wear and tear or sales I might miss. Also leaves me more time to work on other projects, so I'm really hoping that Hasbro keeps up with getting new waves. I just hope retail back up doesn't threaten the entire line again. I know EE seems to be the fail safe, but ordering by the case seems overly expensive given that half of them are straight re-issues.

My buddy got two Mara's from Amazon that were literally squeezed into a one figure box. They actually folded the cards over to make them fit.


Kinda neat seeing these seemingly outsell last year's sets, which were awesome, by what appears to be a good margin.  Last year's sets backed up after the initial couple cases...  This year's seemed to only back up after a long, long time.

It's weird to hear different experiences. Last year's sets for me were very scarce which is why I was panicing this year. However, this year i'm seeing them stocked every other day.

That's insane. Although I already have the set, I feel like an idiot if I don't get another.

Vizam was clearly the highlight of this wave for me. Now if we can just get the other two from the Jabba's Skiff Guards Cinema Scene redone.
