I found one of each (except Luke Stormtrooper) at one WM about a week ago.  However, no other store, including various Targets I've checked almost daily, have gotten this wave at all.  No remnants or anything!  This one is really slow to roll out, and I have a feeling there won't be many pegwarmers.

These hit the Minneapolis area in a big way just this week.  Still not warming pegs, but stores are starting to get multiple cases in which is a good sign.  I'd give it another week or two before we start seeing extras of just about everything.  I think the Jawa will continue to be the hardest to track down.

I finally saw a wave.  Man a lot of Pons Limbic was sitting there but that was about it.  No Spacetrooper of course.

The Spacetrooper seems to be the most scarce of the bunch.  One by one I've been able to track down everything else in the wave, from the new figures to the repacks with the wave 5 droid parts.  Wioslea seems to linger the longest. 

Today I finally scored the Luke and Trinto Duaba with Dice Ibegon.  The only thing I'm missing at this point is the Spacetrooper.  But they'll show up at some point.

I've actually seen the spacetrooper almost every time I've found this wave (about ten times now).  I've even found him sitting with just Luke or Han and no aliens, which I find very odd.  The hardes one to get around my area is the Jawa by far.

In the old days, I'd never have seen the Spacetrooper after 8:05am. However, nobody's hitting stores at opening anymore, so when I'm taking a break and hit a store or two, I'm still seeing the entire wave when it's stocked that day.

I received my three Obi-Wans from Hasbro's online store.  What an awesome figure!  Truly the ultimate Old Ben Kenobi.

I'm displaying two in my BMF Falcon, one on the chair while Luke trains and the other in the cockpit (until I get a good ESB Han and Hoth Leia that can sit down).  The cloaks are nice and will most likely go on the AOTC Obi-Wans I purchase later in the year...the pics so far don't seem to have him wearing one.

Finaly I had completed the wave!  ;D

The Jawa is awesome dough its not the 1st time that I saw it on the pegs but finaly bought it... Is very big compared to the previous ones, but watching the movie again, just surpriced me to see like two or three Jawas of 5-6' tall  in one scene ;D

Opened up this wave over the weekend.  Anyone else get a Ben with a floppy head?  Mine seemed to loll all over the place.  A great set of figures though.

Yep, mine does too. It's the unadvertised action napping feature.

I got a 2nd Ben this weekend and he too has a floppy head, however after a time out of the package where it was getting stretched at the neck, Ben is doing well and not constantly looking down.

I have 1 Ben and his neck peg is floppy.

Maybe Hasbro should start packing Ben necks in with the replacement AT-TE legs.

I think it was a cool idea by Hasbro to make the neck a separate piece to keep from having a poor paintjob (see evolutions ROTS Anakin), but it obviously is not perfect.

I think the "droopy neck" can happen if you aren't carevul about removing the rubber bands in the packaging.

I think the neck's separate for greater range of motion more than anything...  Kenobi's old and a little stooped over in many scenes.  It's possible to avoid the floppy neck if you either cut the bands holding the figure in (carefully with fine point scissors), or to remove the table first and other areas the band is wrapped around the figure, and remove it around the neck last... 

I got another tonight and see how it's stretching it out in the packaging, but mostly it occurs trying to remove the figure from the package.  I'd suggest the first route of simply cutting the band, rather than "ripping the figure free" from his package.  Just some advice from me for what it's worth.  Mine came out fine tonight with out needing neck viagara.

I think the reason for the loose neck is because Hasbro reused the VOTC Obi-Wan torso for the new one and didn't want to modify the sculpt with a new "standard" neck peg.
