Paul, did you skip 3PO, Vader and 4-LOM or did you just miss them?

I picked up all 10 yesterday at my TRU in Orem, UT and it was made all the better because of the buy one get one 50% off sale!   I ended up taking back Darth Vader, Bespin Luke, and C3PO since those exact same cards were done in previous vintage waves.  I already mailed off my redemption form for the Boba Fett and was glad that the requirements didn't make me take off a corner of these new packages. I just used UPCs that qualified from other past figures that I could take them off of.

I skipped them.

3P0 on accident.  Vader and 4-LOM on purpose.

You took back Bespin Luke?! Oh gosh. I hear that it's a superb figure! I look forward to replacing my VTAC Bespin Luke figure with this vintage one.

I just opened the one I picked up this morning - and he is indeed an excellent figure. I would definitely recommend not passing this over.

So far I've opened up Vader, Denger, AT-AT Commander, Echo Base Han, Bespin Luke and C-3PO - definitely a nice group of figures.

Can't wait to find this wave, although my TRU hasn't stocked anything in many, many months so I might literally be the only one here who has to wait until 8/6... possibly even later!

Found and scored the entire wave today at my TRU.  I originally planned to skip Vader 3-PO and maybe 4-LOM, but the giddiness of finding them all and the BOGO sale made it very easy for me to nab them all.  I love these - very cool.

Our TRU hasn't had them either, or I missed them.  I saw all of the first wave(s) of CW and Legends this week, but no vintage.  I'm wondering if they are holding them back as well.  I did get the three "less desired" figures from TRU.com this week (Vader, 4-LOM, and 3PO), and although they aren't necessarily as exciting as the rest of the wave - those cardbacks sure are pretty.  Sadly, I think I'll be suckered into a carded set with these - at least of anything new.

At TRU for now it is, but Target's DCPI (posted by Jeff) rings up the figures at $7.99. So my guess is TRU is taking advantage of the situation of having the figures in stock first by jacking up the price.

An interesting note, I went to a TRU that several local collectors were able to get the figures earlier this week. Nothing on the shelves including no price tags. I asked at the customer service desk if they had any in the stock room and they said no they were cleared out. But the guy mentioned that after the first case was let out early (he referred to the street date as being today), they got permission from corporate to let loose on the remaining cases. Take that for what it's worth, but it could possibly mean that TRU as a whole is either ignoring Hasbro's street date in their own or has permission to do so from big H.

Are there any HTS codes?  I fear these will end up at the $14.99 price point north of the border or the slightly better $11.99 but $7.99?  No way.

On first inspection I thought Dengar and Luke had the same blaster, just painted slightly different. On closer inspection, they're actually different sculpts.

Is it just me or does the Card Photo for Dengar look like the old Photo of Billy the Kid (or at least it is accepted that it is him).





Or has this already been mentioned elsewhere and I am coming late to the party.
