I have all the 12" thus far and I will be getting these.
Have they started to hit stores yet or only on-line?

As far as I know they're only available online right now.  I haven't seen these in any store in the Chicagoland area yet.

I haven't even seen the AT-ST Driver wave in retail yet, let alone this wave.

These figures are awsome. I just picked up a set today at Meijers here in Indy.

I really like Yoda. Which I need to get a second one since my mom is a Yoda fan. I think she will like one.

What's your take David on the Biker Scout?  Is the helmet removable by chance?

I found all of these figures today at Meijers in Toledo, OH as well. I have to say that the Luke and Biker Scout look very, very nice.

No the Biker Scout Helmet is not removable. You could customize it though to become removable. :)

I am at GenCon right, well not right now. I am at home checking out some packages that came in the mail and to get  some stuff.

Anyways, here is my quick review of teh 12"

Luke - It is Jedi Luke. The third one now? There is a little peg on his back where you can turn it and his body moves back and forth. He also comes with the Handcuffs.
I give him a C - It is Jedi Luke. Nothing reallly new.

Ewoks 2-pack - I like the ewoks so these guys are a welcome item. Outstanding detail.
I give these guys an A.

Biker Scout - I am just glad they now have a single Biker Scout. I wish they packaged him in a series when the 12" Biker Scout with Bike came out.
I do not have my 12" Biker Scout with Bike handy to compair the two but I like him.
I give him an B.

Yoda- The best figure of the series. Amazing detail. Come with his Chair, Cane, Newcklace, Jedi Belt, Lightsaber, and Force Lightning. The detail of the figure is great!!! They give him molder capri shorts and his legs are sculpted. So it gives you a glimps of what the rest of Yoda looks like ;)
The Robe is nice. This pose is great. Sit him down, stand him up, or give him his saber to bask some sith @$$.
I give this Yoda an A+ Simply the best Yoda figure ever.

The only ones out of that wave that I really want are the Biker Scout and Yoda.  I heard similar responses about Jedi Luke, and I could really care less about the Ewoks.   :-*

They are pretty ugly, but mainly because they're Ewoks.

That picture does not do them justice. I have them and they are much more detailed and better looking than what is shown. It just may be the picture but yes they look ugly. Not in real life though.
