I'd like to army build those Final 22 figures, but I'm not spending anymore money on TSC unless it's on sale.

Man, I guess I should count myself lucky... I've seen both waves in their entirety (sp?). Recently, it seems like warehouses must be dumping old stock of Saga2 around here. Must be what you're getting. I really hope you all see it soon.

But what qualifies it as a valid report?

The report was first posted in the forums at toynewsi (which is what Ook pointed out in his post).

That post is where JediInsider (part of the toynewsi group) got the info for their news story (which is what Artoo copied earlier in this thread).

What makes the story legit enough for JediInsider to post was the fact that Whitewolf is a frequent contributor over there.  It's kind of like when JediMAC posts his "hey everyone, I found this in SoCal" news posts on our front page.  He never has pictures or reciepts, but we all believe him because he's JediMAC, a regular contributor over here.  We tend to believe him because we know him and trust his word. 

It seems like the same thing for Whitewolf over there.  He is one of their toy reviewers, so they trust him.  I don't think they would have posted it if they didn't think it was true... but whether it is true everywhere or not remains to be seen.  We all know how regional this stuff is and how strange things can happen (like when the VTSC figures hit a Kansas store months before they hit anywhere else). 

They (JediInsider) claim he's going to review the figures in the next few days, so if it's true there will be pics soon enough...

Thanks for clearing that up Jeff.

I'm reading reports suggesting this wave being found by scalpers in my area but I think it's BS until I see them myself ::)

So, any other reports of this wave showing up?

Nah it's a few weeks too early.  Those reports were either an extremely isolated incident or just plain made up.

Glad to see that this hasn't shown up yet. With all the buying over the last few months, I'm enjoying this little "vacation" from new stuff for a few weeks!

Has anyone seen Wave 3 show up yet? I finally finished off Wave 2 yesterday and am eager for more acquisitions.

I'm enjoying the break too, Jman... but these'll be here soon enough.

So far no Wave 3 sightings (of any substance) seem to have come about Blackwolf (welcome aboard JediDefender.com by the way)...  With Wave 2 hardly in the systems, I'm kinda hoping Wave 3 is a ways off.  Hell even Wave 1's disappeared except for 2 figures around my area.

Thanks, JJ. I've been more of a lurker for a while now. Finally decided to contribute.

I didn't think I'd find all the figs I've found so far. Having completed wave 1 & 2, this is the most up to date I've been in a long time. Both waves are getting easier to find around. Boba 'Cept & McStormie seem to be the 2 short packs around here (Omaha). I'm sure a certain comic shop/scalper in our area has something to do with it. I was in there the other day to pick up the new ToyFare and they had all of both waves for $13 each, McStormie- $15 & Boba 'Cept- $20.

That's a sure bet, or at least they pilferred from one store anyway...  My old comic shop I used to frequent would do that and keep extras behind the counter so it looked like they only had one.  It was their way of keeping the "this is all there is and it's rare" kind of hype going.

used to have a friend that lived in Omaha...  She'd visit some out this way but wound up moving to England and marrying some restaurant owner.  Just a strange aside. :)  Or as the Pittsburgh News would call it, "The Pittsburgh Connection".  Dunno why but we always have to find the one person at a tragedy or event that has some tie to Pittsburgh and point it out.

I think the Pittsburg Connection & Omaha Connection are one in the same. I ran into a few people @ C3 who knew people who'd lived in Omaha at one point or still did.

But yeah, this comic shop is the same as yours it sounds like. I know for a fact they have a few people who go out & buy the stuff, bring it back and them mark it up. Members of our Fan Fore group were asked to participate in Free Comic Book Day last year. They let us use their backroom as a staging area/break room and we witnessed their "ill-gotten goods" on the shelves and guys coming back fom shopping trips and immediately grabbing price gun. Right after the TAC- Wave 1 came out, they had a whole set on the counter. I was really tempted to mangle the cards so they couldn't get (their)full price for them. I resisted since they're the only place in town I can get Real Stands and ToyFare w/o having to wait till it actually hits news stands. I'm sure they'll have the C4 exclusives before the show is even over. They had a Jorg Sacul for $100 2 days after C2 was over.
