I was in two Targets this morning, one right as it opened, the other within 20 minutes of it opening and they had clearly both received the "new" Legends this morning as they had none yesterday. No sign of the Snowtrooper though. Has anyone heard anything about anyone actually finding the Snowtrooper? Could it not be in the newest case even though its pictured and numbered in the middle of all the stuff that is in stores now.

It because some stores are getting this case revision that doesn't include the snowtrooper. The other three assortments (HS87995C, HS87995C1, HS87995C3) do.

Of these 4 cases the Tri-Droid looks to be the one that short packed. Only shipping in the HS87995C case.

Thanks Jayson.

That figures that the case that is hitting around here has to be the one without the fig I really want. Oh well.

If those are the only four assortments, the Snowtrooper ought to be somewhere out there.  I personally saw the Luke SL figure and I know I've read that others have as well.  Which is really strange because I haven't read anywhere that anyone has seen the Snowie.  Must be a couple someones at Walmart and Target central have an awesome Hoth battle going on right now...

I can confirm that something is up with these case assortments. At 2 different Target stores today I spotted the case with the Tri-droid (HS87995C case) but no Snowtrooper. They had 1 extra of the AOTC clones instead. Both of these stores had no Legends figures the day before but had a total of 12 (normal case pack total) today.

I saw this exact same thing at my Target.  The Snowtrooper is not in the case it's supposed to be.  It's either late, or maybe as I kind of suspected early on, it will turn in the TLC Hoth wave as a GH fig instead.  Or maybe it's just late.

I already have my fill of Snowtroopers.  I'm just glad I was able to find a red ARC Trooper.

I picked up a SL Sandtrooper for my little Sandtrooper display.  I like how you can make him a normal stormtrooper by removing the pauldron and backpack and putting the small canister on his belt.

Is he different than previous Red ARCs?

Well, he's the same Red ARC Trooper as the one included with the Target exclusive Order 66 2-pack, which I passed on.  That's precisely why I was glad to pick him up. 

Is he different than the versions released prior to that Target exclusive 2-pack?  He's certainly different than the Red ARC Trooper released during the Clone Wars line.  I'm certain of that.  But you should know better than I, being that you own practically every SW figure released by Hasbro, no?   ???

If it's the Order 66 version I may buy it.  But the whole reissue thing is getting old to me.

There are actually a couple different versions of that case.  I think I saw a case on EE that didn't have the snowtrooper and that seems to be the one that's hitting most stores right now.  IF I recall correctly, there are at least two other cases that had the snowy, so hopefully it's just a matter of time before these start showing up.
