I just walked into the SW aisle this morning and an employee just said - let me go check the back, I know there's more cases in the back.  Without me even asking she brought me out 3 cases of w13.  That was cool of her.  Hooked up a few more locals with the troopers.

Speaking for myself I'm most interested in the 2nd Bespin Security Guard, with K'Kruhk and Spacetrooper coming in 2nd.

Not interested in any others.

You kidding? The Bespin Security guard is the only one of this wave I've seen.  It's the peg warmer of the wave around here.

That's if you can sell people on the idea that a figure who's release date was 7 days ago is capable of warming a peg already.

If you told me Yarna and Sae Sae Tiin were warming pegs in your area, that I'd buy.

Considering the rest of the wave is long gone. I'd say he is warming the pegs. We still see lots of Yarne and Sae Sae Tiin.

Agreed, Bespin Security dude is the leftover I see most consistently. Shaak ti and the Space Troopers seem to fly off the fastest.

Up until this past week it's been rare to even see Utris M'toc at retail.  The most common indicator of the EU wave that I've seen in the stores have been the repacks:  Luke, Obi-Wan, Darth Maul, R2 and Chewbacca.  Slapping the pegwarmer label on Utris M'toc at this point seems a bit premature.

Found these this weekend, my TRU had the endcap and what must've been 5 or 6 cases worth between it and the aisle. I was pretty happy to find them at 5 bucks a pop, too.

Pretty dissappointed in the already yellowing Spacetroopers, though. Now I'm hoping he gets a rerelease down the line so we get better plastic. Happy as a clam to actually own Jaina and Jacen figures, those are two from my EU wish list I never thoought I'd see, and after the scary talk a week ago, I was ready to dash my hopes for a second time rather than jump through hoops or pay exorbitant prices for them.

I wish the repack figures had worked out better for me as far as putting together a complete BG droid...I might have picked up an R2 or Chewie or Obi Wan if they were worth the while. (As it stands, I need arms!) A funny thing that occurred to me is if this is the only case ratio we ever see of this wave (as I believe it is) then Hasbro actually had to make twice as many of the BG droid as any of the figures they decided were worth selling to us. Kind of amusing.

All in all, I'm pleased with how this wave ended up. I am done with Legacy now, and good riddance! I give the collection as a whole a D+. Do better with the Vintage line, please!
I live my life with no regrets...by taking absolutely no risks.

The Spacetrooper turned out to be a figure I really like better than I thought I would. I liked him so much I bought 4. I saw the plastic color too but it did not bother me too much. So in order of favorites of this wave it would have to be:

K'kruhk (A slam dunk perfect figure. The only drawback is his missing hat)

Jaina (One of the the if not the best female headsculpt in SW. My only complaint is the saber is not purple)

Spacetrooper (This figure looks great with the POTF2 era Stormtrooper standard blaster. Big & Beefy!)

Shaak ti (Very well done, I have zero complaints)

Jacen (Nice, no complaints. Just nothing to go gaga about)

U'tris (His hat could stand to fit better but is a nice change. I thought these guys were too tall & too specific but it's easy to change with head swaps.)

Darktrooper (I think this figure sucks personally. It looks good for what it is but I am not into the design at all.)
