I saw a Han yesterday at Wal-Mart, but the box was trashed and the Holographic figure was stolen. Anyone else encountered something similar to this?
Hmm..probally some stupid kid.

I've seen some narfed holo's lately.  I'm not sure why...  Usually accessories are msising too but the figure is there, which just makes no sense.  Steal it all ya know?  Worse is the half-assed tape-job the employees do to put it back on the pegs...  For god's sake do a send-back you lazy bonehead.

Rob, I do believe jaybird's right that it's the 500th Vader...  again.

Probably someone wanting to get a set of red or blue chess pieces for their board.  ;)

I bought a full case off the floor this past Saturday.  The box was not open and was mint.  Upon opening, every figures bubble was crushed on the top ???

I've been there. That's not fun.

Jim, if you don't want those Sandtroopers due to crushed bubbles... I know a collector named CHEWIE that would be interested in them. ;)

I believe it is based on the 500th Vader only difference is the silver shoulder armor damage and the helmet is glued on. It is exactly the same as the #013 Hoth Vader again with the helmet dome glued on.

Thanks!

Damnit. I still haven't seen this wave yet. I saw one single Solo one day last week and that has been it so far.  :-\

I scored 6 sandtroopers at Target yesterday.  I opened 2 of them up, and I love that this is the VOTC stormtrooper with dirt.  Minus the backpack and pauldron, these work great as dirty stormies for an Endor dio or the like. 

Good thing, because 1 of these sandtroopers did not come with a backpack!  I opened it very carefully and it did not drop out or anything, it was never there. 

I have 8 POTJ sandies and 12 from the Evolutions sets, so I have my fill of sandtroopers anyhow.

These Tatooine wave stormies will be displayed devoid of all sandtrooper gear.

Love the butt bomb.

Lastly, I think the black pauldron looks pretty bad anyhow.  Orange, grey, and white look pretty good.

Found R5, Hammerhead, Luke, Han, and Vader today. I picked up R5 and Hammerhead, but passed on Luke because I didn't bring enough cash thinking I wouldn't find anything. Stupid me. Luke looks even better in person, so it was really hard to put it back.

EDIT: felt like taking some comparison pics that Jared didn't...

I've only found one Sandtrooper so far... I'm hoping to find at least a dozen - but at this rate it's not looking good.

Just got the one and only wave i can afford this year and I'm very impressed overall by these guys. Hem Dazon is everything I'd hoped he'd be as is good ol R5-D4. I gotta say though i am really blown away by the improvments to Garindan and Hammerhead, both are such an improvment over thier previous incarnations. Overall I love this wave and it was well worth the money spent. Now if we could just get Bom Vimdin made, I could probably be satisfied if they stopped making Cantina guys. (That doesn't mean I want em to stop, i'll keep buying any patrons they put out, even the most insignificant sounding ones.) Bring em on Hasbro! oh and how about that U end of the bar?

I've probably been to Walmart and Target a total of 50 times in the past month looking for Sandtroopers... scored two more today, bringing my total to 5.

I agree with Dressel, they work great as Endor Stormtroopers.
