Well I only got:  TPM "Obi Wan Shinobi"

.my only complain is the twisted right leg that all came with like in CW figures /Cody etc.
maight have to fix that with boiling water/  I fixed my Cody & SBD that way.
 
other: face its not that real looking like the promo did, they did better with the AOTC 2009 one.

Good: LOVE THE ARTICULATIONS!

Just picked up the Obi-Wan from this wave this morning. A great figure as the sculpting details are solid. My only beef with the figure is that the soft goods portion of the skirt doesn't come close to matching the color of the plastic portion. It looks as if my sample uses the soft goods skirt from the Ep3 Obi-Wan, does anyone else have the same issue? Also a bit of the dye from the robe came off on the figure, got it mostly out but that was a bit of a downer as well. The only other figure I saw from this wave was the Pod Racer and he's a big pass. Too little for too much as they say.

Where'd you find it Jason?  Just wondering what stores I should be looking at.

Not sure about your area, but this wave has been most plentiful at Target stores around Minneapolis.  Good luck!

Semi decent wave. Obi Wan's sculpt is pretty off so I hope Hasbro goes back and corrects it at some point (note I'm sure they wil). Rum Sleg probably the 2nd best part of the wave which is odd being he's a background filler character. I don't think the Queen is as bad as many think, but she's not anything to write home about. Cleg- meh...

Now the Gungan I think easily makes the wave. Gorgeous sculpt. Great articulation, Very nice accessories. Winner for sure.

Indeed, this was found at a Target. Rob, specifically it was the store in Arlington Heights (Rand/Willow).

I'm thinking "plentiful" is a little bit strong of a word.

Thanks... if I manage to get out of work at a reasonable hour I'll check the two near me.

Found Rum Sleg today to finish off this wave. I think I can see why he seems to be flying off the peg. Even though he is a background character, there is something cool about the Jason Vorhees/Star Wars crossover it seems to be.

Ya crazy spacesuit alien man is all I need to finish off this wave.  Not all that excited about him, but he keeps eluding me which is driving me nuts.

Rum was the coolest figure in the wave. I want to get another as the one I have has a loose waist. He looks great in cantina dios too:

Nice cantina pic Micheal!  I (like Greedo) am far more impressed with Tonnikaboobies though.   ;)

Can you believe Greedo's eyes are really the size of an average human's, and they only popped out like that after he turned to his right?

Found traces of this wave today.  Got all of the new figures minus the Gungan and Clegg Holdfast.  And the figures I got were definitely pretty cool.

I'm not crazy about how the case packs out though.  There are 6 new figures in the wave, and they're all shipping one to a case.  The rest of the case are a bunch of repacks on the new card.  Definitely fodder for asking WTF?!?!
