Scored another Death Star Trooper today.  Strange that I'm finding these and still haven't found Biggs.  Hmm.

My SBD came from eBay today. I amazingly scored it for retail price, including shipping. Cool.

I also found a neat thingy at a craft store that I usually go to for custom parts. It was an unlicensed 12" Pit Droid composed entirely of auto parts and bicycle parts. It was pretty neat and on sale so I picked it up for my Pit Droid themed collection. I'll post a pic later.  8)

Picked up a Mace Windu/Galactic Marine Order 66 2-Pack at Target today. Love the GM's EU paintjob.

I picked up another Marine and Airborne this weekend that were chilling on the pegs, as well as an Appo who was all by himself.

Some locals found them at WM...  I think I might've posted a story on it on our front page but now  I forget.  I do know some of my local buds found them there a little while ago, before TRU and Target got them out here actually.  Weird.

It's a case here and a case there though, we've seen nothing significant in terms of new figures since KM first got the Wave 1's in, in some quantity, in my area well before all the other retailers.  Very strange time with nothing much shipping unless you're really lucky to walk in and see the fresh case put out there.

Picked up a TRU Bantha yesterday.

DS's WM wave 2 score is the first I've heard of wave 2 hitting WM.

That's interesting Jesse... I know in my endeavors it's the first I've seen wave 2 at WM... or read about it anywhere for that matter.

I've just been reading that they were showing up at wm now too.  One guy on anotheR Site said it was a revision case that he found with 1 fett and 3 others from wave 2 but the rest were wave 1 figs.

Well, looks like the otheR Site got the news posted first again about wave 2 being at WM finally, I tried.

What I saw last night was 3 cases of Wave 2

1 case labeled wave 2
2 cases labeled wave 2 Rev 3

The wave 2, rev 3 are truly different than the wave 2 cases in that there is only one McFett and no Biggs at all and plenty of refreshers from wave 1 as Gorko mentioned.

Starting to see bare pegs replenished with W2/W1 mix at Target stores - I wonder if this is the revision case already?   :-\

Like JJ said in his post, there were a few reports of Wave 2 hitting Wal-Marts last week... for example:

they've hit several stores in my area in sporadic numbers.  And they have hit at Wal-Mart around Pittsburgh but only a case here, a case there...

I don't think "Wave 2 at Wal-Mart" was widely reported because the Wave 2 figures have been out at so many other places (Target, TRU, KB, HasbroToyShop, K-Mart) over the last 2-3 weeks...
