Got to crack open a set save for the McTrooper.

Diner Clone - My expectations of the figure turned out reversed. While the sculpt is solid, the leg stance is a little too Saga 1 and the armor which I expected to hate actually fits well and looks half decent applied.

Padme - Decent figure all the way around.

Jango - Exceeded my already high expectations. Really great figure.

Wolfman Jedi - Another nice surprise. While his legs are oozing with articulation, the arms have ample and the sculpt is solid.

Destroyer droid - Huge. Seems like the blaster hands are a new sculpt as the blast effects are bigger than any previous ones. Though I have enough Destroyer droids, I might pick up a second one just to complete the shield.

Solid wave, can't point to any real disappointments.

Anton hows the coloring around Padme's shoulders?  From the pics it looks like the arms are molded in black plastic and the "skin" around the shoulder joint is painted, but looked kind bad because it didn't really match with the rest of her skin.  Kinda like Cody take off his helmet enough times and the paint rubs off his nose turning it black.

Unfortunately, your assessment is 100% accurate.

I agree with DA.
I did not get Wolfy & McTrooper yet but the wave is solid great army builders and custom fodder.

This wave, aside from the McQuarrie Trooper, is currently in stock at HTS.  Hurry, if interested.

They were disappearing from my cart 1 by 1 until the whole cart was empty.

LOL.

That was FAST.

I was left with 2 McQuarrie snowies and just cancelled the rest of my order.

First they plucked the red fatigue clones from my cart.  Then I went back like it said to and deleted it.  Then they plucked Jango.  Followed the instruction and deleted it.  Then finally they plucked Voolvif.

So my order looked like this:

2 x Jango poncho
4 x fatigue clones
2 x Voolvif
2 x McQuarrie snowie

2 minutes later it was down to 2 snowies.

They must have had like a dozen of each figure in stock, or less.

I want my 10 minutes back.

I didn't have as bad as luck as you, but that was happening to me as well.  I lost the McQuarrie Rebel and the Holo Vader, then ended up getting the rest of wave 8.  I probably would have gotten a couple of other figures, but didn't want to risk losing more.  I didn't notice any of the other Wave 7.5 stuff in stock, but I'll be watching just in case.

I would have kept the McQuarrie snowies, but I found 4 at Walmart this morning.

I'll just get Wave 8 at Walmart within a couple weeks anyhow.

Reminds me of all the time I wasted trying to get the ComiCon exclusives these past two years.  I've never once shopped at any eTailer where they just take things out of your cart if you're not fast enough to the register.

Yeah that is kinda crazy when you think about it.  They can at least give you enough time to check out, geez.  After all, you're shopping for stuff to buy on their site while you push your virtual cart around, and in the meantime they're plucking your items out of your cart.

Would it drive you crazy to find out they are back on the site right now?

I got it just in time, wowo...now I just neeed the last two signature concepts Han & Rebel! I called my buddy and told him, then I posted in So cal forum and within 5 minutes of placing my order they were almost all gone! What the hell is going on with Hasbro, and how come some people are able to order more then one figure? I keeps telling me that I can only order one of each figure?

Opened my last new figure of the year, the McReb. Interesting figure. It's cool, and I can use the head on my second opener for a generic pilot, but I'm glad it's not cool enough to put a squad together of.
