Our Wal Mart just stuck all the figures they had on clearance and are not planning to restock.

Ignore 99.9% of what Wal-Mart employees tell you Mitsu...  Your Wally will certainly restock.  The clearance you're seeing is certainly attributed to an overstock at your location, probably tied to a certain # of figures on-hand in cases sitting in the back room...  Other stores are doing similar things with the 2-pack format I think>

Every year WM seems to scare collectors by saying they're not going to restock, and every year they restock figures galore...  Been this way since the line started.

Well, e-tailer http://www.toymaniacs.com already has wave 9.  It seems that between that and the Fry's report that Hasbro might be servicing their smaller accounts first with this wave.

Since cases are numbered wave 7 included the first of final 22 then isn't wave 8 the next figures and wave 9 the WM exclusives? So, toymaniacs got WM exclusives in? Why do the etailers and retailers get different wave numbers on their cases anyway--I've noticed this with basic figure and titanium ship cases..the numbers are vastly different from etailers boxes from retailers boxes. :-\

DS

If you want to parse words about it, then Toymaniacs got wave 8.  Most people I've seen in the forums call the Holo Obi-Wan/Appo/Clone Scout assortment wave 9.  You could just check their site to see the figures, of course.

Most people called the year 2000 the millennium. That doesn't mean they were right. ;)

Still haven't yet to see any of the Final 22's.  One WM looks like their clearing for something.

Still haven't seen anything new. Every store I go to has either bare pegs or Endor wave figures.

Wave 8 is slowly, and I do mean slowly appearing in my area.

There have been a few semi-reliable reports over at RS that both the Walmart wave and wave 8 (Appo) are starting to hit in CA.

I also saw a posting over on a Joe Board that they were hitting in Vegas as well.

I found two Final 22 figures today, the Green AOTC Clone and the Imperial R5-D4 repaint. I picked up the droid since I only had enough for one figure (and I got a Green Clone with those EE packs). Pretty sad that some of you are already caught up but down in Texas we haven't gotten anything.
