Awesome, thanks for posting this!

I can't wait to get my hands on Luminara! (so to speak)

Luminara is indeed awesome.  The elbow articulation is very clever, and the face sculpt is dang near perfect.  Or close enough to seem gorgeous.  It's one of the best Jedi in the line, easily.  (But her foot holes are too shallow for most stands.)

Yeah, the advance pics from SDCC looked impressive. I am especially keen to check out the facial detailing...I was just reading about that whole freckle/zig-zag thing and was curious how it turned out.

To clarify my earlier post - the pics aren't actually showing the figures on the shelves at a Walmart, but that is where the captioning indicates they were found. I don't see any reason to doubt that, I have heard talk of this wave being spotted in MO too, but it's always important to be accurate.

It hit up 3 Wally's and a Target at lunch and they had zilch.

Will try a few more tonight and report back later~

I'm seeing different listings for what this wave is. Is it Thire, BD, Luminara, and Royal Guard? or something else?

Sorry to be the moron, but is Captain Argyus the dude in the blue Royal Guard outfit?

I could have sworn it was going to say "dude in the blue Royal Guard outfit" next to his name on the card.  ;)

Found Luminara at Target yesterday. This is definitely one of the best figures in the Clone Wars line so far. 8)

I wound up ordering Argyus online.  I should've ordered Luminara, too.  As for the Battle Droids and Clones?  I already got Thire in the WalMart 2-pack.  And the Battle Droid is low priority.

Still, I'm very surprised that I haven't seen these figures at brick & mortar.  I would've thought that there's been enough turnover on Clone Wars to get a good flow going to retail.
