While I can't say that any of the comic packs have been particularly "hot sellers" around here lately, these recent Marvel packs are really sitting around here.  I haven't had any particular trouble finding the other ones either, but I think the same peg or so of these Marvel packs have been at Target, WM, and TRU for quite some time now.  Personally, I don't mind them as much as some people do (although non neon colored packs would be better), but it doesn't seem like they are particularly good sellers regardless.

I found the 4 new ones today... I only one that I wish I wasn't buying was the one with repainted Vader and Leia with a new gun.

Some of these are pretty decent value, but the Marvel ones flat out suck and I wish Hasbro would stop making them.

Agreed, and they're always the "pegwarmer" of their wave around here while DH stuff usually moves significantly faster.

The last wave I saw were Talon/Skywalker and Imperial Knights sets...  Besides those, what's the next wave made up of actually?  Is that the DE set with Luke/Palpatine, the white Vader/Leia, or what?  I'm kinda confused on what's out and what isn't as far as comics go these days.

Those are the 4 I found today - for what it's worth, it was at TRU.  The Karde/Thrawn set is really nice.  I think the Xizor is a fantastic figure too.

Good to know. I haven't seen hide nor hair at Target. I can hit a TRU on my way to work.

EE had this case two months ago with every new comic pack minus the two Marvel ones, it's funny they are hitting stores now. I thought these packs were old news, The outside of the Vaders these were really nice sets.

We are finding them all around Target stores in the Minneapolis area.

I saw three of the four of the new wave at both Target and TRU yesterday.  Target had one Thrawn/Karrde pack (which I grabbed, as it was the only one I wanted) and two SOTE packs, and TRU had one Vader/Tractor Man set and three SOTE packs (no Thrawn/Karrde).  No sign of that white Vader/Leia set at either, so I'm thinking that someone with really bad taste decided to buy them all up in my area (I am not going to complain about that). :)

So the Vos/Faie and Horrible Story Idea Palpatine vs. EEEEEEvil Luke are the next wave?

Yep, those are Wave 4 (due in December). 

Then comes Wave 5 with the Borsk/Wedge, NinjaLuke/Deena, and Ki-Adi/Hett sets from a few pages back.

Finally scored wave 3 and opened the Tracta set last night. Tracta is an interesting and cool figure.

Opened the remainder of the set up yesterday. Overall, not bad. All the figures are well done, except for the Vader re-pack. It's cool to have the upgrades on Thrawn and Xixor.

So far I have snagged 2 of everything except the Leia/Xizor & Thrawn/Karrde sets. I will grab those soon enought, but not in a rush.

I wouldn't be in a rush with the Leia/Xizor set - so far, that's all I've seen of this wave at retail.

I've seen remnants of these all over at Targets now. Seems Trachta is the one that goes first.
