I've noticed that as well, we seemed to have gotten another "wave" of these around here too - I saw them at Target and Wal-Mart both this week, and it will be interesting to see how long they hang around.  Its the first new Star Wars item I've seen at our WM in quite some time, as the basic pegs are buried in Endor/Naboo stuff, with a few Greatest Battles figures sprinkled in.  Hopefully they find some way to get through these (there's even more stashed on the top of the aisle), otherwise its going to be awhile before there's anything new there.

I never saw them the 1st time around but lately they seem to be here and there. The only down side, I can't find a decent looking one. They all seem to be damaged somewhat...

These are finaly starting to hang on the pegs as this weeks shipments to both WM and Target have not flown off of them. I've acually seen them hang for more than a day. :P

Han/Chewie and Stormie/Tarkin lasted about a week here, and the Vader/RFT have been around a few weeks now.

I imagine the next wave will be infinitely more popular.  Because it's badass.

I would assume that the next wave will sell better. New figures in it will help.

Great News that the Rogue Squadron Comic pack has been semi-almost confirmed....


Did anybody besides me read that series?

If so, who do you think we'll see?

I am hoping for 2 Human pilots, I am pretty much Aliened out right now...but I could see us getting the most recent version of Wedge (or worse the 3 pack version) and some other alien pilot...

My wish list would be:

New Versions of course and SA...

Wedge Antilles, in Pilot Gear or even Regular off duty gear.
Tycho Celchu, in Pilot Gear or off duty
Baron Fel, in X Wing Gear or Tie Gear
Hobbie
Jansen
or even Luke from the Rogue Leader series..

I'm excited about a rouge Squadron pack. Lots to chose from. My only note to Hasbro: Make sure they can fit in an X-wing.

I wish they would revisit Shadows of the Empire. Redo Dash Rendar and Xizor and give us Guri and Leebo.

There are many 'o years left. I wouldn't be surprised if that happens.

I don't know the Commando, it's just a stock photo I threw into the story to give some visuals to the rumor list.  Sorry Purge...   :-\  I'm not a Commando wizard since I haven't read their books/comics yet.  I can just tell you the 4 from the video game, haha.

My best guess is one of the Infinities comics which is cool.
What RC vs. SBD? I don't know any RC series comics just books & games. Is this Republic?

Rouge Squadron sounds awesome. Hopefully this'll be the chance for an SA Wedge!

If it's not Wedge I will be very upset.  I don't know what exactly Hasbro has against this guy (doing him justice, anyhow), but he's not the ICMG or Cripsy Lars.  C'mon.  Throw us a bone.

Well since I am more into the OT I would love to see a Wedge available.  To be honest some of these comic book sets sound pretty cool.  It's a nice way for Hasbro to unveil EU offerings IMO.
