Does anyone know what case assortment figure # BD24: General Grievous is in? 

It is a mystery at the moment... hopefully we will get an answer tomorrow during the Hasbro Q&A as I know at least 1 site asked about it.

Guess I'm in the minority here - Panno is great idea for a figure, and from the neck down he's awesome.  But I think that Hasbro did a shoddy job on the head sculpt, it doesn't seem as detailed or refined as most of their other work these days.

I think Panno is hella cool - I don't mind the head sculpt. Just, tool him up a removable eye patch, rifle and tan cloak and we'd have a great Prune Face.

Agreed.  I love just about every figure in this wave - the added detail and articulation on each of them is super.  Most are characters I'm not all that excited about, but the quality and detail on these quickly changed my mind now that I've seen them in person.

I just got another case, the second Ugnaught is really cool. I like him better than the first one. Now I need to find one more to swap parts with my duplicate version 1 so I can have a robust group of Galactic Piggies. This was a really nice wave and they did not skimp out at all on detail and articulation.

I got Luke today from Paul, and I gotta say, I don't think this figure's nearly as bad as all the bitching I've read...  It's not perfect, but I like Hasbro's effort to give both chests in one, rather than repackaging it as another figure down the road.  I'll still gladly buy a 2nd of this.  I really think it's decent.

I think the likeness is quite nice as well.

Cool, thanks for the info Jeff!  I was hoping that someone would ask Hasbro about it in the Q&A.

Well I was sick all this week with the flu...yep the H1N1 stuff.  I am sure I missed out on this wave this week.  I will go out today and look for them.  If I don't score them it's time to hit them up online!

My one sighting of this wave at retail?  A lone Malakili, and someone had ripped out the droid part.

Found the remnants of this wave today. Scored Luke, Panno and the two Skiff Guards, and passed on Nein and Rancor Keeper for now. Didn't see Leia or the Ewoks.

Sounds like these hit pretty hard the last couple days. I wonder if that will be the last good chance to find them before wave 10 hits.

No BD24 Grievous is coming.  From the Q&A at Han's Hideout:

He was indeed dropped, leaving a hole in our figuring number system. This was in response to needing to shift a bunch of assortments around - we just couldn't fit him in. As such, there will be no BD24 issued.

Just scored this whole wave tonight, minus the Ewoks. I hit two different Targets, and the only figure gone was the Ewok set. What. The. Hell.

It shouldn't surprise me, since every Ewok since Chirpa has been a pain in the ass for me to find. At least I got the second Ugnaught, so I don't have to fight for that one.
