I really don't understand what Target's idea is with the street date. It's written nowhere on the box that they're to be held in back until that date. It's their own date I suppose... maybe when they redo the action figure section.

Target has nothing to do with it. The street date was Hasbro's mandate. NFC confirmed this when they said that Hasbro gave them the go ahead to ship earlier than the 25th.

That whole not until 3/25 thing at Target is really pissing me off. I was so frigging close to getting wave 1 today!  >:(

What's the difference between having it now over next week?
Wouldn't you rather have it now than instead of a week?

Sure, but I don't lose any sleep over it.

These are available at KB.com if anyone is interested.  They are 7.99 and the Vader coin holder is 8.99.  All are in stock.

A tad bit late on this one but was able to get a couple of Airborne Troopers but all of the Galactic Marines are long gone  :'(.

After a good score at WM, I'm down to needing one MqTrooper to be done with wave 1 (after pending trades.)

Found wave 1 at a TRU and Walmart in NC, picked up the #1 Vader coin album and Galactic marine, looked very cool person. Same vader as from ROTS so it's not an opener.
only two figs missxing were McQ Boba Fett (no surprise there) and the Orange utapau airborn trooper.
Lava miner doesn't look all that cool to me, neither does R2 but my son likes R2 so I"ll end up getting it, the SBD looks to have much more articulation so as long as it's not flimsy like the ep2 ones, I'll get it to go with flaming R2. Obi wan looks ok but has a noticable hole in his mouth for the tiny rebreather, Mace looks ok.
To open the vader coin album, the cardboard has that 'pull here' zip top like of frozen food packages. Haven't opened it, might but might not since I'm not gonna collect all the coins anyway.

I got these today at TRU and I absolutely love them.  The cards are the maybe the best part - they're really very striking in person.  I got the troopers, and went back with my $5 gift cerfiticate to get R2, who I was going to pass on, but in person rules.

I'm completely done with this wave now. Too bad I still need a few Saga figures to completely wrap the saga line up. :P

boba is wave 2. the stormy is wave 1.

my bonehead bad, somehow I got confused.  :P
I still want the McQ Stormie and none were found. But I do want the McQ Boba when it comes out. Thanks for clearing that up for me so I don't waste time looking for something that aint out yet.

Has anyone noticed that the Super Battledroid's shoulders wound up being a pivot instead of the ball jointed shoulders we were supposed to get?



I cannot abduct and adduct the arms, I can only pivot them 360 degrees.

Still a great figure, but I just realized that the shoulders aren't ball jointed.

No believe me I am yanking on the shoulders on multiple SBD's, and they changed it from a ball joint to a pivot joint.  In other words, the arms cannot go out to the sides like this:



Instead, they have to hang close to the body like this:



I think there are 2 different versions.  Maybe they discontinued the ball joint for costs?

Holy ****, it does move.

I almost had to snap the arms off to get them to move the first time.
