I was finally able to pick up most of the Geo wave this morning (minus the Utapau Clone). Can't wait for those to start shipping in bigger numbers!

Picked up x9 each of the scorch and grunt at 2 Wal Mart stores last nite.  A buddy of mine picked up x5 sets. One WM got in 10 cases of 2.5 :o. Here come the pegwarmers(I think Jared was right...tell your sister you were righttt).

I picked up 4 Utapau clones and 3 Scorches at WM today. I'm finding more to the pattern of WM holding onto stock durring other store sales.

I was able to find the whole Geo wave yesterday (minus the Utapau Clone). Only one Scorch though.

Problem is, the figures that people want (Scorch and the Clone) won't peg warm. They will continue to fly off the shelves either by scalpers, collectors who army build, collectors buying for other collectors etc. Thus what will peg warm are the Poggles the Sun Facs, the C3P0's, Yoda's and eventually the Jango's. What I would be worried about if I was seeing huge case volumes at a store is that if a Walmart has only 4 pegs set aside for 3 3/4 figures, you could see a delay of the next wave being put out if the pegs become too fill. Other point is that if the pegs pegwarm with these figures, more figures being sent to the store from the warehouse is highly unlikely, htus maintaining demand for the figures.

Your points are well spoken, Dog. Good thing is I have 4 WM's to shop at. Funny thing is..last week this same wM got in 5 cases and sold them out! Unfortunately the 5 hard core collectors in my area have all the reg. figs now so now I do expect that store to be pegwarming heaven for 2 months unless they set up end caps...all this and only 8 pegs at that store!

Think I adressed this issue last night in other forums in this TSC thread. Jared pointed it out first though. Maybe it was the geonosis wave thread?

This is only amazing to me because i just today found the hoth wave. :( Iowa sucks if you're trying to find figures.
My answer to the pegwarming problem: absolutly that is a problem, and every non movie year it has been. But frankly if Hasbro would put out an armybuilder case (I.E. Scorch x4 Clone x8) we would be in great shape!

Our area got hit heavy Sat night with 2 to 5 cases per Wally so most collectors got what they wanted.  They also hit a local Marketplace (Smith's) that use to be Fred Meyers.

I got a Utapau Clone at TRU. And of course after finding it I went to several other palces looking for figures but came up empty.
