A friend of mine in VA found this wave at retail.  They're out there.

I probably should have been more patient, but I bought Faie and Grievous on ebay.  They showed up today, and while I paid a few extra bucks for them, I'm glad I have them now.  They really are awesome figures.

Then maybe you can answer Chewie, what's Faie sportin' under his poncho?  Hoping he's based on the concept art and he's got the cool chest armor.

His torso, shoulers and belt are all new... the torso almost looks like he has breasts... seriously.  But it still looks good.  The shoulders are much more like the concept art.  Overall, an AWESOME figure.  Maybe the best clone figure they've ever made... also, I love the crew cut on the clone head.

Just a quick question:  does anyone know the correct assembly of FX-6's arms?  I've looked at photos of the digital model in the Prequels Chronicles book, the Complete Visual Dictionary, and even the entry in the Essential Guide to Droids, and still no luck.  You'd think a figure with this many attachments would at least have some kind of diagram to show where everything goes.   :-\

Scored a Breha Organa tonight.  Looks pretty cool!

My stores here have gotten CW wave 3 already, but have not gotten Basic wave 4 yet. Bummer.

I ordered Bail Organa and Stass Allie, and got Breha Organa on Ebay

So there's only FX-6 left, whom I really want

I found Greivous, The Clone, and Allie at Target 2 days ago.  If I'd gotten there about a minute earlier I'd have had Bail and the droid too.

I got Grevious this morning, no sign of Faie though.  They had Bail and his Wife, the Droid and Stass though, I didn't want them so much...

I picked up the Organas and FX-6 today (got Grevious the other day), so now I need Stass and Faie... they did have the other clone, but left that behind. I'm amazed at how quick I'm finding these... especially with the help of a Red Shirt to score FX-6 and Breha (Bail was on the pegs, but asked him if they had more in back). Must have been a pilfered box.

I received this wave via HTS today, and its a pretty nice wave overall.  I think that FX-6 and Grievous are my favorites of the wave though.  FX-6 is just a great figure, and like others have mentioned, it really reminds me of the POTJ FX-7.  Although he doesn't include his cape, this Grievous is worlds better than any of the others we've gotten previously - and the height increase is a nice touch as well.  I hope to pick up another one of the Grievous figures, if possible.

Doc, you need not look further than the figure itself. I got it today and tried to put the arms on. The ones (5 or 6 of them) that attach to the figure are semi-circles that fit in only one spot. These are also numbered (they are pretty small so if you have poor eyesight, break out the magnifying glass). There are corresponding numbers on the attachments, so match them up 1 = 1, 2 = 2, etc.

I found Faie this morning, they also have the 327th Trooper, is this the same one that was in the Battlepack with Ayla?  I thought this was supposed to be a SL figure.  Was there another figure that was supposed to be in this slot that got bumped?

I thought that the 327th Trooper was supposed to be a Greatest Hits figure more than anything else.  Having it slated as a BD figure swung things in another direction though.  It does make for something of an odd wave though, having 7 figures in the wave when the BAF droid only requires 6 pieces.  Maybe this is a result of Stass Allie being assigned to this wave late in the game?

The Grevious is uber sweet! This wave would have been much cooler if a Magna Guard was in it to accompany him, FX-6 was a wasted new tool figure slot  The FX-6 figure is a real bottom of the figure bin stacker. Faie is so-so. The moobs kinda ruins it for me, the poncho will be staying on, nice head sculpt.

Hasbro's 2008 case ratios are really quite crappy. I received cases of Joes (8-11), Indy (TOD) and SW (2-4) and all of the new figures are 1 per case with tons of reissues. If it was not for Target stores receipts that put all three lines in generic coding number clumps I would be stuck with a lot of excess.
