I saw all the wave 3 figures on the pegs at Target yesterday, in the middle of the afternoon.

ALREADY?!!? Holy crap, I haven't even seen Wave 2 yet! :o

Wave 3 was also found in a few other stores here in LA, so say other reports.

Hit a Target in MN yesterday and found 3PO and Ventress out. The guy in Electronics asked me if I wanted him to get the rest out of the back. I said yes and he got the whole series for me.

Why can't my Target have people that nice in it?  They usually ignore you when you even speak to them.

I picked up this wave yesterday here in MN...  haven't had time to open them up yet, but Plo Koon is definitely bad-ass.  :)

Or if they don't ignore you completely, they sigh loudly and get upset that you have interrupted their 8-hour break with a question about a product you want to buy.  Because, you know, Target isn't into the whole "selling items to customers" myth that retail has perpetuated for the last few hundred years.

Picked up a Plo Koon at my local Target today. He's badass. Glad to see the double lightsaber gauntlet actually make it as an accessory for a 3.75" figure.  :)

I've found these too, and this is the first group of CW guys I bought lots of.  My earlier resistance crumbled as I realized IG-86 is one of the best SW figs of the year.  Plo is Plo and that's cool by me.  And 3-PO turned out great.  Sigh.  I keep trying to get out, and they keep pulling me back in!

Bah. We're always going to buy some Star Wars toys. It's a lot easier when it's just a figure or two instead of a whole wave.

If anyone is interested, it seems that BBTS has this wave (as a set, or most as singles) currently in stock.

Picked up the Droideka and IG-86 today.  Pretty cool on both counts.  But I'm so swamped with the aftermath of moving houses that I don't think it's a great time to open these up just yet.

Found scads of this wave at Kohl's tonight. I picked up C-3PO and IG-86 for $6.79 each. I thought they were going to be $8.50 based on the sale sign, otherwise I would have bought more. I'll probably go back tomorrow and get the last three I need for the wave.

I also found the first three waves of Legacy there too.

I had a mailer for an extra 15% off on top of that so it made for a nice purchase.  No signs of Ventress though, but they had some Joes so that made up for it.

I got a chance to open these up, and I think this is my favorite wave so far from the Clone Wars figures.  As everyone has mentioned, the Plo Koon is all kinds of cool.  One of my favorite figures of the year, even without much leg articulation.  The Ventress is also pretty well done I thought, and Dooku - while under-articulated - still looks pretty good.  For some reason I really like the 3PO in this wave though.  I mean, no accessories and he's just a basic figure - but he's got nice articulation and seems like a solid figure overall.
