I must have just missed the new wave at our local Target this weekend.  I was able to grab the Anakin/Clonetrooper (Clone Wars) two pack, but none of the other new ones were there.

Same with me today at my local TRU. That was the only one there...

  I think Target is the place to keep checking. I found Darth, Durge, Hammerhead and Snowtrooper pacs there Monday night (Madison, Wi.) I took just those but it about cleared the pegs. They have been out for awhile but it seems now they are putting up like 1 case at a time of the new wave. Just my best guess as to whose getting them. No signs at my Walmart...still has alot of older waves.

Non eof the stores around here are restocking these. I never see any new galactic heroes. All that the stores have are the same view from about 3 waves ago.

I found the new wave last week at my Super Wal-Mart (Anderson, Ca). I had the Snowtrooper in my hand and put it back in favor of the too cute Hammerhead pack, and I couldn't pass up the Darth Maul with speeder bike. They will eventually make it out everywhere.
Anyone got a ben for sale??

I checked WM, TRU, and Target today too - but still no go, but hopefully they'll make it out in greater numbers soon.  TRU only has one older 2 pack, plus 4-5 of the Vader's Bounty Hunters gift packs.  Wal-Mart has quite a few of the Greedo/Han packs, as well as a few of some other older packs, and Target has two packs on the pegs: Vader/Bespin Leia and Han/Luke Stormtrooper.

I found the Hammerhead/Figrin D'an two pack this weekend at Wal-Mart.  They must have restocked, as the pegs were overflowing with 2 packs, but the only new one I saw was (surprisingly) the Hammerhead pack (there was two of them).  I also picked up another Hoth Soldier/Snowtrooper pack.  They didn't have any of the Clone Wars packs, or Darth Maul/Speeder, so I'm still on the lookout for the Obi in Armor/Durge 2 pack.  I'm so happy that we got a Hammerhead in this line, I wouldn't have thought that would have happened a couple of years ago.

I just about ordered the Obi-Wan/Durge pack, because I keep missing that one, but I couldn't bring myself to pay shipping on one set - or buying other stuff I don't necessarily need to feel better about it :P.  I've seen the other packs from this wave, although somewhat scarce, but this one has always been gone.  Oh well, I'll wait it out and hope it shows up locally - I notice it is out of stock at HTS now, so we'll see.

I just saw this pack at our local target the other day.  Do you want me to get it for you?

Thanks for the offer, I really appreciate it.  I ended up tacking one on to another HTS.com order I had, so I should be all set on it now.  These things are still selling like hotcakes around here though, at least from what I can tell from the pegs.  Good to see though, its a fun little line.
