Y'know, I hate to support stereotypes, but...last summer I was working a job a few blocks from a new Wal-mart.  One day, I stopped at the Wal-Mart as they were opening.  They were just a few people there, but one was a big scungy looking guy in sweatpants and a grubby t-sirt. He was unsahven, and his hair was all messed up like he'd just rolled out of bed. He really looked shabby.  I'm thinking, that guy's a toy collector, and I bet Hot Wheels is his thing. Anyway, the store opens and we both head towards the toy isle.  He goes straight for the HotWheels, and starts digging therough the pegs like a mad man.  He was a livin' stereotype.
Just a note.  I'm a big guy, but i realy try to always looke my best, especially when looking for toys at oddd hours.  Don't want to give my brother's a bda name.

Dude thats hilarious that you had them pegged before the store opened. I can do the same thing weather Star Wars of HW. I hate to support stereotypes but there is always some truth behind good, bad or indifferent. However there is sometime the truth of observation. I hit stores in the morning so I will snap up everyone I can and get my JD peeps hooked up!

Jess, I will give you first dibs if I open them pal! Not sure yet.

Thanks man. :)  I appreciate it...  I've been thinking about TRYING to find a place that could electroplate a set for me too, but that's not cheap, even on a tiny scale...  It's possible though to find folks to do it for you if you dig around in your area.

I just want a complete coin folder.  Something about that (like the Freeze Frames) is cool to me.

Hopefully this means they'll be both packed in more case assortments... I'd love to get that Concept Trooper, and the EU Holiday Fett is my most wanted figure of the entire 30AC line, besides the SL EU DarkTrooper of course.

Yeah the fact the trooper's got an UGH coin bodes well for repacking that figure in future assortments at least.

Here is what you do buy the UGH's and then return the non hug figure you have already picked up. I did that year and it worked out great!

Assuming you have an extra so you end up with both coins and carded versions if you're a completist that is.

I have no desire for these, but I ran into half of the UGH from last year and promptly bought what I found. I'm sure that will be the same case this year.

So, based on the Yak Hasbro Q&A answer...

Case #87500000H:
- UGH #02 Galactic Marine
- UGH #04 R2-D2
- UGH #06 Mace Windu

Case #87500000J:
- UGH #09 McQuarrie Stormtrooper
- UGH #11 Han Solo
- UGH #12 Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony)

Case #87500000K;
- UGH #14 Biggs (X-Wing)
- UGH #15 McQuarrie Boba Fett
- UGH #16 Darth Vader (Death Star Duel)

Case #87500000U:
- UGH #07 Airborne Trooper
- UGH #21 McQuarrie Chewbacca
- UGH #24 Boba Fett (animated Debut)

So that's at least 3 of the McQuarries coming back as UGHs.   ::)

Oh, and it's basically 1/2 of the first 24 figures.  Would have been nice if they would have spread them out a bit more to get more diversity in there, but whatever I guess.

I can't really match these up with any of the cases up for pre-order at EE, so I guess they aren't coming just yet...

Total Deja Vu!   That was my first UGH the LAST time 'round....

It looks like wave 4 is "D" and 5 is "E" if I read it correctly. If that's correct it may be awhile before these hit if wave 5 is due in September. Maybe Christmas or, God forbid, these hit during Black Friday. I'm not going to worry too much about it. I plan on preordering cases from here on out for 30th. Not so much to get the UGH but to make it easier to keep getting Mcfigs.

The most prized possession of my entire star wars collection is my Sega Trilogy Special Edition Pinball Machine.
