Here it seems like the Jawa isn't warming. People are 'army' building these guys probably... or else people want a bunch of LINs too!

I'm going to army build the Jawa if I ever see him.  I love those little buggers.

I have to say, I haven't seen a lot of pegwarming for the TAC lately here either.  Sure, I could probably find a Han/Luke from Wave 2 pretty easily, but even those seem to be selling through slowly.  I've started to see a few more Rebel Honor Guards as well.  Surprisingly, I think Obi-Wan and R2 have dried up, and the only Wave 1 figures I've seen recently are Mace and the two clones.  It looks like Vader might hang around a little longer from Wave 3 (and possibly Biggs), but I haven't seen much of that wave yet.  The VTSC doesn't seem quite as plentiful here (yet) as many of you have seen.  I think there is about 8 figures at our local Wal-Mart now, and three or so at Target.  I haven't been to TRU recently, but they didn't have them the last time I was there.

Of the figs from wave three I think we'll see Vader pegwarm. The stand is cool, but I just don't see the average person going crazy over it just because of the new stand(obi robe). Next I see Biggs and Luke. Sure at first Biggs will sell, due to the novelty of having a cut scene fig. But again the average person doesn't even know who this guy is, or if they did only as an X-wing pilot and not the cut scene outfit. Luke has a strong point in the vaporator, and that will be his only saving grace for a little while. The figure itself is not that great.

I do agree that the Jawa is going to be harder than the previous three. It's been awhile since we've had Jawas. Let alone a great Jawa fig like this. Toss in a new never before made droid and I see every reason for people wanting this figure. Army build it? Hmm, maybe. I'm planning on getting 4-5 myself, so yeah I guess you can say army build. But for m I'm going to customize the paint apps on the extra. I won't really need the extra LIN droids. (So they will be available for trade/sale later as I get them).

The Stormtrooper shouldn't peg, however I've seen several people on various SW collecting boards go either way on this. Mostly due to the helmet. All I can say is good...heh heh. More for me and the others out there who WANT the figure. I don't think the helmet issue is all that bad and I can easily overlook any shortcomings of it.

McChewie of course is the gem in this wave. I don't expect him to peg at all. If you see him, get him.

Its been kind of strange around here.  Looking at the stores, WM is still out of the picture - they still have only the old TSC pegwarmers from the Enboo and Greatest Battles waves.  Last time I was at TRU they were pretty well stocked with Wave 2, but pretty much just Luke and Han.  At Target, at one point there was just gobs of Obi-Wan and R2, and now those are all gone.  Then there was gobs of Han and Luke (Wave 2), and now those are all gone.  When I stopped in yesterday, all they had on the pegs were 2x Mace Windu, and 5x Galactic Marine, along with older TSC figures that they've had for awhile.  I guess it shows that things - even pegwarmers - seem to be selling eventually.

Obi-Wan and R2 seem to have sold through pretty well around here, too.  They lingered at first, but not anymore.  But I've noticed that some of the wave 3 Vaders are hanging around for a little while.

And here in SJ, which I think is very strange because they both suck.  ;D

The pegwarmers here now seem to vary at different Targets. At all TRUs and the Target closest to my house, its all Ceremonial Lukes, Gunner Hans, Vaders, and the occassional dozen Mace Windus. At another Target a few miles away a couple weeks ago, I was surprised to find a ton of DSTs and RHGs. And at the other Target it is nothing but an Obi every other full moon and a trillion Saga2 figures (Threepio, Jellyjar, and Power Droids).

It seems like the pegwarmers are really specific to the individual stores around here.  For example, here's how things looked the last time I visited the "Big 3":

Wal-Mart - No TAC, same TSC pegwarmers (Enboo, H&V, and now a few of the "Final 22") Comic packs of Vader/RFT, Tarkin/Stormtrooper, and Vos/Grahrk.  A handful of VTAC left (just laying on a back shelf, away from the rest of the section.  I think there is 3 Leias, 2 Hans, a Luke and a Bossk.

Target - TAC Mace Windu and Galactic Marine are the only TAC figures there for the past couple weeks.  Every once in awhile I'll see and Airborne Trooper or a Wave 3 Vader.  There's still a few TSC figures, mainly Enboo stuff, but not as much.  Pretty good supply of the Wave 2 comic packs, but ARC/Obi sells out.  VTAC figures in decent supply, but Snowtrooper and IG-88 disappear quickly.

TRU - TAC Luke, Han, and Biggs in good supply.  There's also a few Rebel Honor Guards.  A handful of TSC figures here too, mostly Jerjerrods.  Some comic packs, mainly Vader/RFT and Vos/Grahrk.  VTAC - again, everyone but Snowtrooper and IG-88.

Wave 3 has been slim to none in our area.  I've seen Vader a few times, Biggs twice, and I picked up one Stormtrooper as I happened to be at Target as it opened on a Saturday morning.  Otherwise nothing else.  Wal-mart will be lucky to get rid of those TSC figures by Christmas, unless they finally clearance them out.  TRU has been more consistent than usual this year, although they do have a lot of Han/Luke/Biggs on the pegs right now.  We'll see.  I just hope we see more Wave 3 showing up.  I'd like to get some extras of the Stormtrooper, Jawa, and one more McQuarrie Chewie to keep carded.

I think the biggest pegwarmer around here now is the Galactic Marine, which I wouldn't have guessed at the beginning of the year.  There are others that hang about quite a bit (Vader, Mace, Han, Biggs, and sometimes Luke).  Actually, the Stormtrooper is a fairly easy find lately here as well.
