I dunno, I'm starting to like the Battle Droid 2-pk more than I thought I would. 

Jesse have the TRU stores in your area gotten that wave in much that you know of?  That was the best place to find them around these parts.  There was an over abundance of clones... so if they haven't hit in your area at TRU yet, that might be the place to start checking.

No reports yet but I haven't been to a TRU in a bit.  The only place I've heard any of the locals finding them though is Wal-Mart...  Target's are resetting right now and not restocking, and WM seems to be jumping into that as well.

Most of my wave 8 sightings have been at Target and TRU so far.  But I saw a report that wave 9 has been sighted in California.  Haven't seen any receipt or product photos though.

Yeah I saw that report as well. Gotta love those "my friend found the new wave at -enter obscure retail location here- yet he has no camera or a way to get them to me so I can show proof" reports.  ::)
I remember my dream now.

That's the unfortunate side effect of getting info at a place that's like the dirt mall.  ;D  But we're bound to see these popping up some more since they've been sighted in Asia and online to a limited extent.

That and no other reports made one report look dubious.

Target seems to be putting more of these out (wave 8 that is)- I came across more in Minnesota, thanks to a tip from Jedijaybird. I left the clones, but did pick up that crazy camo super battle droid and an endor trooper I needed. I have a case on order with EE for the appo wave, so here's hoping. Even though I only pick and choose on the Hasbro figures now, those Wal mart figs are looking to be tough to get. The stores near me have cleared out basics, and the peg-resets don't look encouraging

Hmmm.  The dirtmall report is starting to seem more dubious.  The only wave 9 in-hand auctions seem to be from the UK.  Even for a repack like Yarael Poof.  Aside from that I saw a couple of wave 9 figures from Arkansas that *might* just be from some buyer for WalMart.

Wave 9 isn't out yet but we should see a pretty good amount of it hanging around during February while 30AC is delayed.

I have a feeling these last to waves will be the new GB/HV in Feburary, even the clones & Sep droids warming.

I think a lot of people would be OK with that.  ;)

Well, I have noticed that some army builders seem *disinterested* in the 442nd and 5th Fleet Clones.  Usually I see the other army builders gone before those.  Perhaps the army builders are rebelling against non-movie Clone Troopers?

Or maybe just "Cloned out" - too many new Clones to keep up with and giving up.

Like Jesse said I am cloned-out.  There is only so many time I canl buy the same figure before I feel like a moron.
You are never alone when there's a clone.
