Here's a Link. However, in hindsight, I'm now dubious.

There's picture conformation that these have turned up in the mid-west at WM. Sadly, the same day these hit there, my WM's all got tons of old cases. >:(

I haven't even found the Naboo wave yet! Damn Hasbro and there lightning fast releases of waves.

Just about dashed my hopes for anything new in my area yesterday. I was at the local Wally World and the pegs were over flowing with GB / H&V to the extent of stacks of figures laying on the top pegs. Frustrated, I wandered off and saw a large pull cart taking overstock to the back. On it I saw the familiar shape and size of Hasbro on it and rushed to see if possibly there were Naboo and later releases on it. I almost had to pick my jaw off the ground when I noticed no less that 30 CASES of H&V on the cart headed to the back. Hasbro made a serious buck off my WalMart. Maybe in 2008 I can start looking for the Naboo wave in my area.  >:(

Oh, and the last 22? Yeah, right...somewhere...over the rainbow...

Yeah the Black guy from the Endor Wave is just part of the Endor2/Naboo Wave that's been shipping for a bit.  Check TRU if you're in need of those Deanna, they've been hitting there frequently.

And some food for thought guys...

If you've got overflowing pegs at WM, take the K-Mart of Kay-Bee Toy ads with you for Black Friday and try to clear up some stuff if you're into having multiples of some army builders and whatnot.  Their Buy One Get One deals may pay off for you at Wal-Mart.  Sometimes they deny you but sometimes not.  It's worth a try if you're going to be out anyway I figure.

Now that I see the Kashyyyk trooper packaged, he looks more disapointing.

Yes...he looks horrible. >:(

I was planning on army-building that guy. Now I'm not buying a single one of them.

If you're referring to the Appo figure, then yes, I see it too.

sorry, i made that very unclear. yes, i am referring to the appo fig. it concerns me that this may mean we are just getting the ROTS #65 fig but it excites me at the same time that this could also just be the SA fig we wanted, just a removable helmet rehash.
