I don't know if anyone is interested, but as of a half hour ago or so, HasbroToyShop.com had the Tatooine wave (minus Sandtrooper, of course) in stock on their site.  $6.99 each.  I went ahead and ordered what they had in stock, since there hasn't been any signs of these locally and the price is pretty much in line with what retail charges at this point anyways.  Now I just have to hope I can find a few Sandtroopers :).  Anyways, just thought I'd pass it along if anyone is interested.

I have a wall of Vader at my WM.  10 Hoth Versions and about 8 of the Tatooine (Bespin) Wave version.  BTW, why was this Vader included in this wave?

Because it is 2006, the year after the year of the Vader.  I think Hasbro's plan is for every household in America to have a 500th Vader. :-\

Thanks for the heads up.  I actually cancelled my preorder since I was finding the figures everywhere.  I'll need to be checking though to make sure they aren't still sending it.

No one, Hasbro, Sideshow, midicom..., no one seems to be able to get Mark Mamil's head sculpt right.
The 12 inch SS one was great IMO.The VOTC/VTSC had an OK head,also IMO.

In Pittsburgh, at least for me, these have become easier to find...  I'm hoping everyone else is having similar luck.  I've seen Sandtroopers even in some abundance.  It feels good buying a SA figure with lots of accessories...  Real good.  :)

I even appreciate figures like Hem Dazon more than I have from pictures.  I'm pleased by that.

I had troble finding the aliens.  I still see them from time to time.  I have only seen 2 sandtroopers though.  Han and Luke are usually warming along with Vader.  I have yet to see R5 so I do not know if he is worth picking up?  Is he (from the opening, playing, displaying stand point not the nice card point of view)?

R5 is really cool. While his leg does not retract it pops off so you can fit him in a y-wing or x-wing. If you turn his head his motivater pops ups.
Get him, he is worth it!

Well, I found the whole wave at Wal Mart except for Sandtroopers (Big suprise  ::)) and it seems that I just arrived after a new case of Tatooine was unloaded...someone must've beat me to them.  :)
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

So far of this wave I've noticed that, obviously the Sandtrooper goes first, then though I'm surprised to see Hem Dazon is sorta tough to find too...  Then R5.  Then Garindan, and *drum roll* Momaw Nadon is a pegwarmer in my toy hunting routine already.  See my latest review on JD's front page as to WHY I believe his is this way too. :)

Yes Hasbro, yes...  articulation means nothing to you.  F improvements to the line, they're not worth it! ;)

I'm guessing Hem just has the "new" factor pushing him at retail mor ethan Garindan?  I'd say, honestly, Garindan is the better figure overall...  But Hem has the lead so far from what I see.  That's weird.

Sandtrooper is just great though, keep looking for him DN, he's out there...  I've seen him a few times now.  WM is getting this wave in semi-routinely right now and no more H&V seem to be hitting.  That's a major plus.  I've noticed since H&V dried up that they even are moving better.  People must be panicing that a set of them may be worth having since they shipped only briefly (or so far it seems briefly).
