Scored holo Obi-Wan and a Clone Trooper - Combat Engineer at a comic shop today.  Those were the only figures from that wave that I saw, but they were definitely a surprise.

Also, an interesting note on the Clone Trooper - Combat Engineer.  The sculpt on this trooper is identical to the Evolutions ROTS Clone Trooper.  The chief difference however is that the Evolutions Clone has a utility belt with attached kama and holsters, while the Combat Engineer Clone has only the utility belt.

I picked up the rest of these last night.

Some interesting things I noted...

I don't know if was prior mentioned but Yareel poof has the cool McQuarrie lightsaber, however, on the back of his card it shows a regular lightsaber :-\.

The Kashyk trooper comes with the lower leg mounted little gun and the mid-sized gun, but the pic on the back of the card shows him holding the rifle :-\?!

Aurra sings' antenna(sensor) is not there but they talk about it on the back of the card ::).

The Wm exlusives came in 2 different style cases(see WM thread for more).

Thanks Jesse--

Oops I forgot to mention...

while the store clerk let me get what I needed out of the long style case, he told me they're not supposed to set up the long cases on end cap until February. I'm not sure if this was WM-wide or local store policy or if applies to the smaller regular-sized( hat also had exclusives) at the other WM either.

Yeah, that makes me tempted to pick up an opener, but I keep hearing the word "sucker" echoing in my head when I think about it. :P

Indeed they are.  At least this is, and so is this.

that jawa photo of Obi doesn't do it justice...the ones I saw (including my purchased one) have a really dark near-purple midnite blue hologram color.
If we're going to be beat over the heads by hasbro with holo's at least they varied the color a bit.

After having the Kashyyk clone in hand, I'm still not convinced that I shouldn't use him as special teams for my Imperial Army. Interesting wave though. Can't wait to get an opener Vader Droid.

No sign of these at the big retailers around here (and there probably won't be given the Grand Army of the Jerjerrod at Wal-Mart), but a co-worker picked me up a Combat Engineer Clone Trooper at a local comic shop over the weekend.  She said they had ordered one case (they only ever get one case of SW figures, out of a fear of getting stuck with gobs of pegwarmers) and that someone had taken the Appo out and left the rest. 

Now, if TRU would get as many of this wave as they got of the Wave 8 stuff, I wouldn't be nearly as worried about finishing off what I want as I am right now, given Target and WM's relative lack of new stuff (Target just got another case of Wave 6 this morning).   ::)

I never saw all of Wave 8 actually...  Wave 9's not even been seen at all around Pittsburgh to the best of my knowledge, and the WM exclusives...  hah, I'm not even thinking about those at this point.  It's pathetic around here, and not like we have tons of pegwarmers either.  We seemingly got spared the glut of repacks you other guys got...  We've got pegwarmers but loads of space for new figures too.

This sorta sucks butt.

Yeah...Pittsburgh is pretty much the suck right now. I ended up going online for the two figs from Wave 8 that I wanted, and I haven't even been out on a toy row for over a week. It's just not worth it, because I know I won't find anything...
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

Had my first figure purchase in honestly I don't remember how long today. After scoring at several Wal-Marts and Targets, I'm down to needing only six more figures to complete my Saga Collection.

53 Sith Training Maul
59 Clone Trooper 5th Fleet Security
62 Battle Droids
64 Commander Appo
65 Elite Corps Clone Trooper
68 Combat Engineer Clone Trooper

I have a hunch most of these are gonna be a pain for me to track down.

I picked up the three Cantina Aliens, Aurra Sing, and a Combat Engineer tonight at Wal Mart. They had no Mace Windu Astro Droid, or any other Wave 9 figures. Hopefully I'll find them soon.
