I picked up the brown helmet version of the Resistance Trooper today.  The figure itself is pretty cool.  But is it me, or do the resistance uniforms look a bit uninspired compared to some of the Rebel uniforms of the OT.

The entire costume design of the resistance was uninspired. Looks like everything was made with felt.

Wave 3 is finally showing up on-line, but for some reason at more than $20 a pop. I hear Rey was more than $30. And this was through Walmart, not Toy wiz.

Well, after a concerted effort searching eBay once a day, I was able to acquire the final pieces to complete the original 2012 releases. I don't have all complete droids, mind you, but I have all domes, bodies and legs. It can be done! And it wasn't horribly expensive.

Hopefully I can get to Disneyland enough to get all the new ones now.

It would seem to me that these have sold more than solidly enough to justify continuing the line. I just hope both Walmart and Hasbro can see the very strong desire for premium figures and increase subsequent production runs.

Didn't even know there was a Kylo Ren version. Will keep an eye out.

EDIT: Oh, I thought an exclusive TRU version was being mentioned there. As far as I can find, there are only two TRU exclusives - Poe and Phasma.

I found the TRU exclusive Armor-up Poe. I had failed to notice that one was even out there to be had.

I found the Wave 5 6" and there's a lot of reports of this wave hitting heavy. Was the same with wave 3. But no sign of wave 4. How very odd.

Long over due, but i did start a trade thread for parts (in the trade section.)

Been putting this off for far too long. Missed a bunch of the wave one pieces and have been trying to trade/purchase to catch up.

Here's what I've got for trade (all wave 1):

R5 Green with white/green body
R3 Purple with white/purple body
R5 Red dome
R6 Yellow dome
R8 Yellow dome

R4 Blue dome (wave 1)
R2 Green dome

IF body parts are available with the domes, would take:

R4 Blue on a standard R2 D2 body
R2 Green on solid green/silver body

It's funny how it's feast or famine. We were all moaning about how nothing was on the pegs, now it's a glut of wave 2 product slowing the new waves from making the pegs.

And right back at ya Jesse! Helped a few West coasters out with some WM Black series wave 2 goodies that passed us by. Thanks a ton!

I kind of take it as a bad sign that we haven't gotten the official Wave 4 announcement. Yet, the line does seem to be selling quite well, so one would think it has the legs to keep going.

An interesting discussion about wanting to get foot traffic in the store, but the exclusives just don't work well out my way in SoCal. Here are two examples:

1) We never got wave 2 and the only reason I got wave 3 was because the Hasbro rep at my closest store found two cases sitting on a shelf in back that was not designated for stocking.

2) Monday took my out of my usual area and I stopped in a Walmart in Redondo Beach to check it out. The SW section was gone! They reset with one peg for SW. It was labeled Rebel Assist, had the two newer rebel figures on the peg (TFA packaging,) AND it was in the middle of the die cast section.  ??? I asked the toy person with the scanner in the action figure isle where the SW section was and she said, predictably, that they weren't carrying SW anymore. Now, you and I have heard this every year from WM since 1996. It's never true. This does't happen ever at Target.

WM is such a bad choice for exclusives for SW. At least where I live.

Busted mine out. Have no idea where to put it.  :P

Pretty awesome though.

I'd love it if they could find a way to send this line somewhere other than Wal-Mart... hell, give it to Entertainment Earth, or make them HTS exclusives.

Something I can order online is all I ask for...

Can't disagree with a word of this statement.
