Is anyone seeing this wave still shipping.  I only saw two figures from it at retail.  Odd...wasn't it an AOTC wave on the white cards that was awol also?

Phantom Menace was huge with kids and famalies.  It made over 400 million 12 years ago!  Only in the fan communities is it considered a "flop."

AOTC, on the other hand, was the only SW film that was not #1 at the box office for the year it came out.  It was #3 behind Spiderman and LOTR.

And yes, AOTC is a good film for toys, and still coould be mined deeper.

I'm seeing lots of it.  2 weeks ago I saw a freshly opened case at an out of the way Wal-Mart, and then last weekend I saw a fresh case at a nearby Wal-Mart.  Then during the week, my K-Mart got in the first new figuers they've gotten since around Christmas time, and it was a full set of Wave 4.

The only figures I'm not seeing as often out of the wave are Anakin and Jango, with Jango being the harder of those two to find (oddly enough).  Anakin though, he's one of the first to go.  The rest I'm seeing semi-regularly now.

All I got from this wave was Zam, and that's because I ordered her online. I'll have to go hunting again. Which stores is it mostly at?

Never actually seen this wave. I've only seen the Senate Guard and Obi-Wan thanks to their re-appearances in Wave 6.

I've only seen this wave in bits and pieces.  And I have NEVER seen the Jango Fett from this wave to date.

Hmmm...looks like we all missed this one at this point.  Oddly, I have a feeling this one will show up.  Thanks for the updates.

I did a little cross border shopping in Spokane WA last week and lucked out at the Walmarts there.  Between 2 stores, I saw the complete wave and grabbed Zam and Padme.  I was torn whether or not to "upgrade" Mace and Kit, but decided I was happy enough with the versions I have.

Not that I'm buying them, but the only store I've ever seen them (and at least half the wave is still there) is my local K-Mart.

Lando,

KM and WM are the only places I've seen wave 4.  Target I've only seen wave 5 and reprots of wave 6...  I've seen 3, 4, 5, and 6 at WM though, since they've been the only retailer actually ordering anything for a while...  My target stores I visit aren't ordering much, KM just started again, and it sounds like TRU is maybe trying to order something I guess with the wave 7 reports.

Alright so this is a question for anyone who can answer -

Visited my local Target recently and was floored by what I discovered. Keep in mind that this store has had the exact same 20+ figures on the pegs since January, an assortment of Wooof, Bespin Cloud Car Pilot, Ep.III Clone, and Endor Rebel Soldier.

What floored me was that when I visited this time, there was a lone AOTC Obi-Wan on the pegs, with the card in mint shape (I was enraged that it wasn't Zam Wesell). My question is, how is it that this one AOTC figure ended up here? Is it possible that for the first time in months this Target restocked the pegs (is this happening elsewhere?) and I just missed the rest of the figures? Or could it be that it was returned from a different store? The reason I'm asking is because I find it odd that there was only one figure from this wave and not a handful of others.
