Best I can tell Target is getting ONE new figure each. Today I picked up Dutch, Rex, and Wolffe all at different Targets and that one figure was all they each had.

Just like HTS. Putting one new figure up per day, or every other day since nothing new went up today.

they're waiting for me to break down and order Rex, and only after that will the other clones be listed.  ::)

I've been trying to hold off all week but they seem content to wait me out. Bastages.

My local Targets each had a lone Hoth Luke. Literally the worst/boringest figure in the whole wave.  >:(

Got the three wave 7 figs I had ordered from HTS today and included in the box is a coupon for 15% off my next purchase.

Grabbed Wolfe, Rex, and Dag Vader at TRU. Doom was MIA.

It's not just Wolfe's height; the proportions are so way off -- torso, shoe, neck length (ie, spacing between clavicles and bottom of the helmet); helmet shape.

And the head/helmet on both clones pop off fairly easy.

Rex's skirting should have been made from more pliable plastic. And his knee joint -- I was afraid I was going to break it while bending the knee.

I wonder how long ago these 2 were developed.

I'm not looking for an actual answer here, but how can HTS still not have put Doom up on their site yet? Is Target providing them with their website inventory?

Lol! I was thinking the same thing. Pretty dang frustrating. Was thinking of giving them a call, but I'm sure no one would have any clue as to what I was talking about.

My local Target got two Darth Malguses (Malgi?) from the last wave, so that doesn't bode well for them actually getting wave 7, much less wave 8.  Given that the pegs have been bare since before Christmas and their 12.99 price hike, I'm not anticipating a rush to stock much of anything as it relates to Star Wars until September rolls around.  Even then, I'd be willing to bet that Target (or at least my Target) won't have their stuff out on time since they typically seem to drag about 3-5 days behind other retailers when it comes to time-sensitive displays in my region.

Earlier when they first rolled out Dutch, Vader and Chewie I called and asked if the rest would be released. They gave some canned answer and referred me to a customer satisfaction line. I'm glad I didn't panic order and a few days later found the comete wave at TRU for cheaper.

I've seen a couple of the Stormtroopers in the wild on one occasion, but that's it for this wave at brick & mortar retail.  However it was very encouraging to see that Target was pricing these at $9.99 each, and not the ridiculous way that TRU is currently pricing their figures.

So TRU is charging more than Target in your area?

Quite the opposite in the Boston area. Unpaid 9.99 at toys r us. Targets range between 13 and as high as 15.50 per figure

I caved today and bought the retooled Stormtrooper at TRU.
