Although I know with the wave dump we're having right now (4, 5, 6, 7 and Legends) different areas are seeing different things right now.  Which figures, aside from the obvious McQuarries or exclusives, have been the toughest to find this year overall?  It seems like HTS has done a decent job stocking some things, and now some other waves are starting to make their way to retail (or online orders) as well.  Which figures do you think will be the toughest finds for 2007, the way things are looking so far?

With two recent sightings of McFett - I've now seen them all.

For a while I thought McFett was going to be the first figure since Admiral Motti that I didn't see in stores.

I have not been actively searching this year, just looking when I am out, and I have seen every 30AC figure on the shelf (thru wave 6) with the exception of the McQuarrie Starkiller.

Everything else I have seen on more than one occasion even, with the exception of the McSnowy and Darths Revan and Malak. This includes UGHs. Things have definitely been out there in my area, thanks mostly to the huge pileup last month on waves 5 and 6 at WalMart.
I live my life with no regrets...by taking absolutely no risks.

Just the Starkiller Hero and red Pit Droids. The list was longer, but the last couple of weeks have been good to me.  :)

Here are the figures I have not seen on a peg at retail yet.  This is by far the worst year yet for finding figures (at retail).  Back in ROTS days, they only 2 I never found were Gree and Bly, and I think I found all but the walmart wave (I didn't even look) from last year's collection.  I have been lucky and managed to snag most of the figures I have been hunting for on HTS.com

McQuarrie Signature Series: Concept Stormtrooper
McQuarrie Signature Series: Concept Boba Fett
Jawa & LIN Droid (Tatooine Scavenger)
McQuarrie Signature Series: Concept Chewbacca (NON-UGH)
CZ-4 (CZ-Series Droid)
McQuarrie Signature Series: Concept Darth Vader
Hermi Odle (Baragwin)
C-3PO & Salacious Crumb (Jabba's Servants)
Roron Corobb (Jedi Knight)
Yoda & Kybuck (Jedi Master)
Anakin Skywalker (Jedi Knight)
Darth Revan (Sith Lord)
Darth Malak (Sith Lord)
Pre-Cyborg Grievous (Kaleesh Warlord Qymaen jai Sheelal)
McQuarrie Signature Series: Concept Starkiller Hero
McQuarrie Signature Series: Concept Snowtrooper

And the omission of wave 7 does not mean I have found it.  I just know it will be weeks before it may begin to show up around the Seattle area.

The only figures I felt I had a tough time with were the "other 9" UGH's, but I wasn't the only one, so I don't know if they count. Everything else has been findable given time.

Haven't seen Wave 4 onwards here in the UK - although I understand it is starting to appear in stores now.

No Tantive IV battle packs yet either.

Not very good considering the UK was the first to get Wave 1  ???
