Mine's the same way, but it's really very minor/tough to notice.  No problem standing mine either...

Would love to army build this guy, but AB'ing a McQuarrie figure is a pipe dream at this point I think. ;)

I think I'm up to 10 Stormies (2 of the old version) and 3 Snowies so far. :)  12 of each would be nice.

I got my case of Wave 6 figures in from Newforce yesterday.  The McFlurry is really one hell of a figure. I love how you can remove the covering of his mask.  This might be my favorite figure this whole year!

I got a General McQuarrie yesterday, and I have to say again that I think the Bren Derlin sculpt is HIGHLY underrated.  Despite lack of knee articulation, the stance, proportions, and sculpting detail (like the pocket flaps) are outstanding.  The head sculpt is great too; he may not be a dead ringer for Ralph, but it's a good older man effort, better than Dodonna for sure.

It seems as if Wave 6 is currently in stock at HTS.  The McQuarrie Snowtrooper was not last time I checked, but I did see the others in stock.  Also, the 25FALL promo code seems to still work for 25% off plus free shipping.  Just a heads up if anyone is interested.

Thanks for the tip Brian.  I also noticed that the McVader is back listed as 'Coming Soon' too this morning.

I found Smuggler Outfit Lando and 4-LOM at TRU today.

Lando is a very good figure, but it didn't feel like a good value at almost eight dollars. He only comes with that little blaster. The arms and hands are a little annoying and the eyes look a little funny, but other than that I'm still happy with the figure. Could've been worse.

4-LOM is also a very good figure. It was nice to add another excellent SA resculpt to my bounty hunters display. He's no IG-88, but he's definitely the definitive 4-LOM.

I'm also waiting for Han and his rack from HTS, should arrive soon. I didn't see General McQuarrie at TRU and I'll probably never see the McSnowtrooper, but this small wave is a nice break and at least now I have a chance to find Wave 5.

The thing about the eyes is something to keep a watch for. I got mine from a friend who snagged extras. After grabbing one of the extras and seeing that Lando had the "eyes-rolled-into-the-back-of-the-head-zombie" look, I took one of the others that had good paint apps on the eyes.

Mine isn't quite a zombie, but they're just a little weird when looking really closely. Nothing too distracting.

Still looking for Lando and Han torture.  I'm surprised I was able to find 4-LOM (and there were a few there) but saw only one McQuarrie and no Landos.  I imagine Target will get caught up with waves 4, 5, and 6 soon, and a WM I frequent will get wave 6 for the first time.

I can help you out with those if you want Daigo-Bah.

Also, I found Wave 6 at Target today.  Very cool since I finally got the McQuarrie Snowtrooper at retail - with these two, the two I got from www.newforcecomics.com, plus the one Jeff is sending me, I'm up to 5... meaning I can customize one and not feel guilty... that removable mask is just awesome and I can see the helmet being used for an awesome custom.

Thanks Chewie- I think I'll be ok soon with figure releases though.  The wave 6 figs I found were at one WM of about 3 I frequent, and none at the 2 Targets either.  I'm sure they'll get there soon enough!

I went to a Khols yesterday, and they had 3 Mcsnowie. the sigh  above it said "25% off 7.49. So I passed, but then I remember seeing another sign in the store that said "30% 6.99 but I didnt click"  So I went back today, and there were two different sale sighns. One in the toy section, and one on their moblile end cap. I bought another McSnowie.  I also went to TRUS and they had 3 McVaders, bought one.  The Taget I went to had SL w3 with a Dark Trooper, I left it I have 3 of those.
