There's 4 pegs for basic at most of my WM's-Is that Hasbrow's fault too?

Actually it is.

Their sales people are the ones who garner space at retail based on historical data and sales pitches.

I picked up the entire set of Courescant figs from one case today. What was interesting is that I got the case and it's marked wave 3.

When I got my Geonosis wave case from New Force it was marked "wave 2.5".

Leave it to Hasbro to use creative numbering... it's not the first time (500th Vader?).   ;)

I remember when we got the initial case assortments list from ahh another site.. it showed coruscant in wave 3. Then, it turned out geo was wave 2.5 ::).
Probably just a good bet to open any case.... just in case.

Hit a local Target near work this morning around 9:30AM. Found the Anakin, Obi-Wan, Lushros Dofine, Holographic Ki-Adi-Mundi, & General Grievous from the Battle of Coruscant wave. They also got in two Hoth Vaders, a Carkoon Han, Leia, and Boba Fett. Regretfully, I did not see a single Firespeeder Pilot, Foul Moudama or Cmdr. Cody figure but there was one guy walking around with a lone Clone Trooper.

Alas, the only figure I picked up was the Holographic Ki-Adi-Mundi as he is the only one from this wave I want besides the three that I did not see today.

WOOT!  I hit the local Target store today over lunch and BAM!  Coruscant, baby!   ;D

Instead of just a lone Bib staring at me from the pegs today, they had:

One of these cases:
2x Scorch, 2x #26 Utapau Clone, 2x Yoda, 1x Jango, 1x Sora, 1x Han, 1x Leia, 1x Chewie, 1x Fett

And one of these Cases:
2x Vader (Saber Out), 2x #26 Utapau Clone, 1x each of the Coruscant wave figures.


I grabbed all the #26 Utapau Clones, #21 Scorchs (or is that Scorches?), and all the Coruscant figures, so I'm now finally done the the Geonosis Wave and half-way done with the Coruscant wave. 

Good day indeed!   :)

Nice find, it is surprising to see these still hanging on the pegs at lunchtime with an 8 AM opening.  Very lucky.

Not really(surprising)..some targets stock between 10-3 like my 2 stores, others everything is stocked before they open. Not likely stocked and sitting since opening that long as hot as these are now unless he is the only collector in his area, he isn't.

Yeah, this particular Target likes to stock things from about 9am-11am and really only does over-night stocking on the weekends so it's the perfect spot to hit at lunch.   ;)

I bought my first TSC fig today (yeah, it's March... yikes), the AT AT Driver.  He was part of a case that must have included figs from all three of the first waves.  No Cody wave yet, unless they were all gone.

I would like to thank the collecting gods for allowing me to score the Firespeeder pilot and Commander Cody this morning at Target.
