I also got the 2 x Rev 3 case from NFC (one for me and one for IamSith).  Its okay since I already had one McVader but I'll need a second to open now.

Just noticed that StarWarsShop has most of this wave in stock for individual sale, including Hermi, Starkiller, Yoda, and Anakin.  Too bad they want $12/figure  :P

I knew months ago when I first saw pics of Hermi, that I'd douse him in water and get his cloak to drape properly... so that's what I did!  Here are some pics of him out of the package, then after water treatment.  His soft goods are wet here, but rest assured after drying they kept the shape perfectly.  The material was great for water treatment, much like the VTSC Tusken's robes.

IT does look much better like that. Very cool.

So Daigo-Bah, all you did was soak the cloak (hah!) and shape it? Once it dries it retained the shape? That sounds pretty easy, what's the catch?  ;)

I saw this wave in abundance once, and only took a few figures thinking I could get the rest later. Now it seems 6 and 4 are everywhere, with virtually no retail sightings of 5. I wonder if the whole wave saw a lower run due to hermi-

All there is to it!  When it dries, it isn't quite as dark as in these pics, but it does retain the shape perfectly.  This only works for the type of material used here and in the VTSC Tuskens cloak; it doesn't work with the Vader capes or TAC Jedi Luke type of material.  Just hold him under a running faucet for several seconds until the material is completely drenched, then set him down and shape it as you like.  It'll dry after several hours and stays fairly stiff if you have to move him around.

Anybody know what kind of m,aterial that is anyway?  Or is it something in the material....dye or what not.  It seems to work best out of all the of soft goods that hasrbo has used in the past.

jedipurge, it seems to be more of like a gauze material that allows you to shape it.  It's very, very thin material - I'm pretty sure that it's just the grade of cloth that makes it so easy to shape it.

Doubtful. This still has to hit Target and is just starting to show up at TRU. I've also been seeing this wave shipping simultaneously with wave 6, so there should be no worries.
