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.
