Why do these get shorter with each new release?

It's a mix of osteoporosis, osteomalacia, and the rickets!

Its just a deceptive visual.  Each clone took one more step backwards than the clone to his right.  ;)

I have yet to see this wave in ANY store! If were not for HTS I would not ever have one of these figures yet, I would still like to pick up a couple extra clones from this wave.  Thank god for HTS!

I have yet to see this wave in any store either.

As a matter of fact, I'm down to only one figure left to get for my TAC collection to be complete - the Hawkbat Battallion Clone.

A friend of mine ordered five cases of this wave online, he already got them and I traded with him for his extras for a boatload of Wave 8 figures I picked up for him when I scored mine.

Thanks to that trade I now have 5x Rebel Vanguard, 5x Naboo Soldier, 5x 7th Legion Trooper (2 of these were from HTS), 3x Pax Bonkik, 3x Holo Vader and 3x R2-B1. The only reason why he got five cases in the first place is because the Hawkbat clone ships 1 per case, so he needed five cases to meet his needs.

So now that I STILL have yet to see this wave anywhere, I'm getting nervous that I might not get all of the Hawkbat clones I need - minimally I need three of them (one MOC, two to open to complete my two coin albums). Ideally I want five of them. I have a case on order with EE that has 2 Hawkbat clones in it, but I HATE getting cases for just one or two figures. While I do end up with a lot of extra other figures, I always end up feeling like I paid $84 just for the two figures I needed.

Hopefully this wave will start to ship in mass quantities soon - I'm hoping that Wave 7.5 will be what Target starts to get to fill all of the empty pegs they have post Toy Aisle reset.

I have not seen this wave either, and I too only need the Hawkbat clone to finish the year. I would be happy with just the coin to finish the album but even those seem to go for too much on ebay.

You will see it being put out through April.  Additionally, I think the Hawkbat is repacked into Wave 1 of 2008.



You'll have Hawkbats coming out of your ears.

Don't even think about it.  Just stay patient, you'll find it repeatedly.  Months from now, you will still be seeing it on the pegs.

Yeah, the Hawkbat clone is not going to be hard to find folks...

Wave 8, Revision 3 will come with TWO Hawkbat Clones with coins.

No, I'm not. It just amazes me how much the coins are going for on ebay. It doesnt make any sense. They are selling for more than the figures.  ???

Yeah - that's the case I have on order with them. I think in the Wave 8 Revision 2 case there's two of them as well. But like I said, when I already have at least 2 of every other TAC figure open and I really don't need any of the other figures in the case, it's a bitter pill to swallow to get 10 other figures I don't need.

You will see it being put out through April.  Additionally, I think the Hawkbat is repacked into Wave 1 of 2008.

Well - like evenflow pointed out, the key thing here is the coins - if Hasbro allowed me to buy JUST the Hawkbat coin from HTS, I'd be okay with that. Unfortunately, the Hawkbat figure in Wave 1 of 2008 will NOT be coming with a coin, instead he will be coming with a stand.

That's actually wave 7.5 revision #3. EE labels 7.5 and 8 wrong.  :P Revision #1 also has two hawkbat clones.

Well - the Hawkbat Clone is no longer listed on Hasbro Toy Shop.

This is really starting to upset me.

Does anyone have any spare coins from Hawkbat Clones they're willing to part with?
