Sal, I will buy the Maleks, I sent you a PM.

I was also lucky to get double sets at the sale price today.  These are a good value even at full price. (i like half better)

Outside of the Jump Trooper the rest of the imp troops I have no need for and will have them for trade/sale if anyone is army building. I have x4 Shadow Stormies up for sale and x2 Evo Troopers if anyone is troop building. All are $5 each.

I picked up two more sets so I could have four each of Kota's Militia, Felucian, Jumptrooper w/Backpack and Repaint EvoTrooper and now I'll have eight of the cloaked Shadow Troopers.

Since I now have four each of both Mareks, updated Juno and Proxy, I'm probably gonna bring in four of them to display on my desk at work.

I'm kinda glad TRU has the BOGO sale this week, otherwise I wouldn't have gone this far overboard with this exclusive.

Are these showing up pretty much everywhere?  The only TRU near me is being renovated right now and they aren't really stocking much.... I don't know if they just haven't gotten them in or if they might not get them at all.

Out of the five stores I've hit in the last three days, only one has not had them.

All four of the others has had them and in varying degrees of glut - in other words, they weren't hard to acquire. I picked up five sets (so 10 pieces) between two store visits w/o any problem - I was actually shocked because I thought that with the BOGO going on right now, two box sets for $45 + tax which got you 10 figures would be selling like gang-busters, but I guess it all comes down to the characters in the packs. Most parents (and kids) aren't gonna know who these characters are.

Pete, I think it has more to do with the fact that they just came out. (And you snagged them all up, LOL) Granted people can't get that deal now, but 5 figs for $30 is still a decent deal compared to single carded figures.

It will be very interesting to see how much of the stock on these and W13 is yet to come.  I sure hope they have more coming because they're all great figures.

No wave 13, but I scored big on these today.  Got both sets for Buy one, get 1/2 off, and with a $10 off coupon, I got the sets and an Iron Man figure for $45.   :)

Got my extra FU sets today.  They're ok...  Some really nice figures, but some duds too.  Those Stealth Stormtroopers are **** IMO.  The Evo and Jumptrooper (especially the Evo, as at least the Jumptrooper finally now has his jetpack) kinda suck as well.  To be expected, and for the price I'm happy.

Thanks.  I took a ride out to the burbs today and came up empty handed at 3 TRU's... I did manage to finally find those Wal-mart Comic Packs though.

I went to TRU yesterday to try and score these as well as the EU wave.  The EU wave was gone (managed to get the alien Bespin Guard though) and there isn't even shelf space for these packs yet.

Am I the only one who was surprised to find the Shadow Stormtrooper is in both boxes?  I Thought there were 10 different figures across the two sets, not nine.  It's kind of a cool figure, though I'd rather have two Militia than two SS's.

There was something mentioned, I think maybe in a Q&A session, about the Shadow Trooper changing, but you're right Justin that a different Shadow Trooper (who had a removable helmet and baklava/ski mask thing) was pictured at (I believe) Toy Fair.

That figure may have shown up overseas as well, but was not in the set ultimately.

And yes, this hobby can be exhausting. :)  I'm a big advocate of pre-ordering what you can when you can, if you can...  I don't always follow my own advice on that though either, but usually our sponsor Entertainment Earth, or Big Bad Toy Store, come through on all pre-orders you put in...
