Just curious, has anyone been finding the Bounty Hunter sets so far?  I thought I had read of them showing up at K-Mart (we don't have any here), but I wasn't sure.  Really looking forward to this wave.  Strangely enough, they haven't ever shown up at Target here at all (unless I'm looking in the wrong place).  The first (ANH) wave showed up at TRU, and literally lasted about 2 days.  I did see all of the ANH sets at a Wal-Mart last weekend.  TRU must have also briefly had the AOTC waves, saw a lone Anakin/Padme on the pegs, just about bought it, but ended up putting it back.  I said I was going to stick to OT only with these, so I'm trying to stay to that.  If it would have been the Yoda/Clone pack, or possibly even the Obi-Wan/Jango one, I might have considered it though.  It seems, at least around here, that these are selling very well.  Anyways, has anyone seen the Bounty Hunter sets yet?

My buddy, who works at TRU, IMd me today to tell me they had gotten more Galactic Heroes in, including the Bounty Hunters.  I was able to get the all 3 Bounty Hunter sets and the Han/Leia, Darth/Obi1 and Chewy/3PO sets for my nephew!

Now, maybe I just missed it previously, but while skulking around at EE, I noticed they have a nice pic of the upcoming Galactic Heroes including I believe the previously unseen Nikto Skiff Guard with Lando.  It says these are "estimated" to be shipping in October, that would be great, but probably unlikely.  Here's the pic, courtesy of EE:

Uh, did we know about the Luke/Gamorrean Guard and the Tusken/Jawa combos?  I must have completely missed that.  It's a good thing these are so cheap. :o

Yeah, Luke might be new too.  For some reason I thought we saw a glimpse of him in GH's Comic-Con coverage, just during Hasbro's presentation (on the screen), not the actual figure.  I might have dreamt that up though too.  Either way, I'm glad we're getting more of these little guys.  Hopefully we'll see some more waves after this as well.  They're nice and small, so they don't take up much space, and aren't too bad price-wise either.  Time for another vehicle in the line though ;).

Yeah, that's a new Jedi Luke alright.  As far as the Insider goes, whenever mine finally shows up, I'll let you know ::)  Costs me $10 more to get it two months later >:(

Good Memory, Brian!

SDCC brings us news of MORE GH figures...

Luke (Jedi) & Gamorrean Guard 2-pack
Lando (Skiff) and Nikto (Skiff) 2-pack
Stormtroopers 2-pack
Jawa and Tusken Raider 2-pack.

GalacticHunter.com a mock-up photo up...

GH had the mock-ups of the Tatooine wave Gamorrean/Luke and Skiff Guards 2-packs, then Jawa and Tusken made their first appearance in the Insider last month...

Anyone got an extra Scout Trooper promo they'd be willing to part with?

Finally picked up the BH wave of GH figures today at TRU.

Great little interpretations of the ESB Hunters!

Thanks for the heads up Jeff, I'll have to check our local TRU today after work.  Usually seems to get stuff shortly after you or Scott find it in Minny, hopefully that hold true again today :).

I also need the Bounty Hunter wave (including stormtroopers). Have a handful of VOTC to trade, or I'll buy them outright.

I think I forgot to mention I saw them at Maplewood TRU last week sometime.  I have Wave 3 on preorder at EE so I didn't buy them but I did fondle them a lot!

I had no clue there was a Stormie 2pak.  Gotta find that now.
