Our local WM had a couple cases of this on the pegs this morning as well (they just did a reset), so I picked up a few extras.  Really one of my favorite waves of the year overall, nice figures.

Has this shown up at Target yet?  No Wal-marts within 25 minutes of here...

I've yet to see a sighting at Target.  Everything I've read/seen/heard is online or Wal-Mart.

I still haven't seen any of this wave and it's not for lack of trying.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

I too haven't seen/heard of anything of this wave showing up at any store but WM so far.

It's very weird, but WM tends to not wait after the holidays to keep things flowing while Target and TRU do have a bit of a slowdown I've noticed.  Usually once February passes, things pick up at least slightly at those stores.

Talk about out of it...is the second Bespin Guard (freaky alien guy) in this wave, or is he in the EU wave that ships next?

He's in the now exclusive EU wave, which will be at TRU's.

The last Q&A...  They'll be at TRU then at some online retailers like Entertainment Earth who get the last of the run.

I'm thinking I might have to break down and buy a case of this wave online. No stores have gotten anything past the ANH wave, and I need my Zuckuss and ICMG.

Not a bad idea if someone has them available.  There's gonna be a gap in product though too, so you never know when the icejam will break.  Right now Legacy's the only thing that's shipped much locally except Clone Wars which keeps steadily moving.  Legends is dead in the water here.

If anyone ends up with an extra AT-AT Driver holding his helmet in package and/or the Concept Snowtrooper with belt backwards on the picture on the back of the card, please shoot me a PM.  I'm still a sucker for the variations and will buy or trade.

Last night I finally managed to find some of these. Just needing the Concept Snowtrooper, the Alien Bespin Guard and the AT-AT Driver. If anyone can help me out it would be most appreciated. I'd prefer if these have the HK-50 parts, but I'll take them with a different droid part if they're carded like that.

I believe the Alien Bespin Guard is Wave 13 (TRU Exclusive wave), so you just have two figs to track down now.   ;)
