Good point Rob, but one would think (or hope) that in a case of 12 these would be 2 each leaving 2 repacks (if they are cases of 12.)

I picked these up last night at WM. The cases come 2 different ways.

One style is a long display box like the one mentioned earlier in here--it has x1 each of the exclusives.

The next style was different, it was a typical/regular case box except unlike the Appo wave cases(wave 8 on case) this one had no wave annotation on any of the sides. Anyway, when I opened it it had x1 each of the exclusives + yoda(I think it was number #17), bespin vader, then Scorch, I think the rest was wave 8 stuff--alot of clones though ;).

I hope this info helps--if folks see a case without wave #'s open it-if you're still looking for WM exclusives!

Not a good sign. These will be tough to find.

I'm making a stand with this wave and not picking up an opener set. With the exception of Mace's Droid, the new paint apps aren't enough to make me want them, especially with the POTF2 sculpts.

FYI: The Labria, Kitik Keed`kak & Nabrun Leids with Kabe figures all have the wrong stand (AOTC) included. 

Thanks Hasbro. Thanks a lot.  ::)

It's good that the dumbest **** usually winds up as exclusives to a store, typically at high prices.

Wouldn't mind snagging another Kitik though, but wouldn't lose a wink of sleep if I didn't pick one up.

Found the Wal+Mart exclusives yesterday, with the rest of whichever wave you wanna call it.  I didn't need to pick up everything, but all the astromechs are nice, plus some Cantina patrons, which look spiffy in their new digs (Saga cards). I'll open some later.

Hit 6 Wms today all I found was 1 Labria and 1 Nabrun Leids/Kabe 2-pack.  ::)

Could use Aurra and R4-M6 if anyone finds any extras.

I saw 8 cases tonite in Oklahoma, it's the second time I've seen the long cases on the pallets. It seems like when they DO send them to a WM; they send alot. It's too bad the case asst...is set up for a pegwarmer haven after the exclusives(1 to a case -Ugh, why do it Hasblow?)are nabbed.

I might have to get some help with this wave, because after checking our WM yesterday, I don't see them showing up anytime soon.  Not only are the pegs overflowing with Naboo/Endor/Greatest Battles figures, but I saw at least four other boxes (not the Star Wars "display" boxes, but larger boxes from other toylines) sitting throughout the toy section just filled with those same figures.  There had to be at least 25-30 figures in each box, and like I said, at least four boxes that I saw.  So unless WM can quickly sell 150 Naboo/Greatest Battles figures, I don't see this assortment showing up anytime soon.  I really want the astromech, but wouldn't mind getting the Cantina aliens as well just because I missed the previous versions.

It's going to be interesting to see how these are distributed, seeing if some WM's will get a gluttony with others getting little or none. I wonder why that would be?
