Bummer that the spacetrooper was one of the first to sell out. I'd buy it at the higher price just to be secure in getting the last ones I need.

A funny thing that occurred to me is if this is the only case ratio we ever see of this wave (as I believe it is) then Hasbro actually had to make twice as many of the BG droid as any of the figures they decided were worth selling to us. Kind of amusing.

Ha!  I hadn't thought of that but you're right, and it is interesting.  I'd have to double check but this may not be the only wave that's like that either, some of the final waves had only one case revision and I don't believe any new characters were packed 2x in any of the cases.

I think it's also shameful on Hasbro's part that there isn't a single re-pack in this wave that can be considered an army builder.  That Jedi Luke has been packed 4 times and R2 3 times.  It's not like either of them were hard to find unless you were after a certain droid part.

It seems like lots of folks who want this wave are finding it.

The TRU near where I work got in five more cases that they put out this morning. This brings the case count at this store (that I'm aware of) up to 14.

One of my stores has gotten about 10 over the course of the last few weeks and sell out fairly quickly. Repacks too. Hope they keep coming.

I got a set from a friend but I've never seen them in the stores.  I really was hoping for some Darktroopers for army building, but nada so far.

Our TRU put out 5 more cases today...that's at least 10 so far, not bad at all.

Finally scored this wave in it's entirety today.  Ran into drips and drabs in the past 2 weeks, but today the entire wave was on the pegs, and I took the whole thing.

Quite the fiasco too.  These have been in the stockroom since the last truck at TRU, and the next truck comes tomorrow, yet every day since last truck various employees told me "all we have is what's on the sales floor."

Yet every day I'd find another couple figures from the case on the shelf.  It was obvious 1-2 cases had been put out a day even though there were none in the stockroom.  This has been going on since May 1st.

Finally today, I hit it just right.

Annoying to be sure, but I love me some K'Kruhk.

Finally got this wave from EE.  Great set, not a bad figure among them!

ooooh nice army...

On a different note, I'm going to buy the ENTIRE wave online. It'll be my first online purchase! Although I'm groaning at the thought of how much it'll cost me.
