I've seen pretty much everything to date except for the Rebel Pilots 2 Evolutions set.

I've seen everything now.  The rarest on my shopping excursions was Wave 2 figs and the Hoth Speederbike BPs, but I've seen both just this week.

I'm in the same boat. That's the only thing I wanted on 7/26 and didn't find. I still haven't seen it. I just ONE set too.

I've seen pretty much everything includeing the imperial pilots last friday. Funny but I still haven't seen the repack Darth Vader. Lame considering I need that droid part.

For me it's also been the Rebel Pilots Legacy #2 Evolutions set.

I have one that I grabbed at Target prior to the 7/26 launch - and that's it. I only want one more to open.

Out of the reg figs, I think the hardest one to find/fewest I've seen around is Padme, which I thought was surprising.  I've seen lots of Wave 1 and Wave 2 here and there, but Padme is by far the one I've seen the least of.  Figured troops or Tiin would be selling better - is she short packed?

In cases of Wave 2, she's one per case.

Clones, Anakin, and Obi-Wan are still plentiful at my local WM. I still see a few of all the figures except the Battle Damaged Darth Vader and Padme. I have not seen one Evolution set yet.

I'm gonna go with the Reb Pilots 2, it's the only thing I'm have trouble picking multiples up of. But, I think that will change in a month or so.

Still have not seen any of the pilots sets here locally in Iowa.  No one has restocked Evolutions at all, while they seem to be reloading heavily on everything else.

The Evolutions pilots sets and the Big Gun ARC Trooper are non-existent around me, and I've only seen Saesee Tiin and Scuba Troopers once. Good thing I bought a ton of Scuba Troopers at MM!

I have to say, after a couple of weeks now, I think that most to all of Legacy Wave 2 has disappeared around town.  I saw most of that wave (aside from Tiin) for the first week plus, but I think most of it is gone now.  Also, overall the Evolutions continue to move quickly (the repacks a bit slower, but still moving it seems), and I also haven't ever seen the Rebel Pilots II set (or the first one since opening night at TRU).  The $20 vehicles seem to be selling well too - the new ones anyways.

- Wave 2 Padme
- Wave 2 Saesee Tinn
- Wave 2 Quad Gunner
- Wave 2 Scuba Clone
- Rebel Pilots II Evolutions

(Anything from Wave 2 is HTF actually, but I see the four I listed significantly less than Obi, Lancer, and the sea critters)

These four are the only things I haven't seen multiples of. Tinn and the Evolutions set I have still yet to see in stores. I saw one Padme at MM but it was in the hands of a scalper. I picked up the lone Scuba Clone at MM. I passed on the lone Quad Gunner at MM and I'm kicking myself for it now. I've only seen one more, and it was in a pile of figures a kid had at TRU. He wanted all of them but his dad made him pick 3, and the Quad Gunner was one he picked. Took all my strength to keep from telling him the Quad Gunner was a bad figure and that he'd be much happier with a Clone Armor Obi-Wan. :-p

Oh, I forgot to mention the 3D Yoda. I got a 1st Day one to keep carded at MM, but since then he's been nonexistent around here. ???
