Jeff - any details? I saw the blurb on HH as well as some comments from various fan forums.

He is not listed in any of the case assortments for this wave (or the next one), so it appears that he was bumped out into 2011. 

No word yet from Hasbro on what happened to him... :(

Thanks, hunting around again for these today.

Not sure what will become of Jet...I just noticed that they actually revised the numbering for this wave. Jet was supposed to be CW36, but now Quinlan Vos has that number.

This strikes me as odd because they did not renumber the TVC wave missing Yoda or Wedge.

Maybe we'll see him in the eventual wave with Cad Bane in Clone Armor.  ::)

Just saw these are up now at HTS for Pre-Order, sans Jet. With the Family2010 code, it comes to $29.33 for all 4 new figures. Tempting, if not for the estimated 12/6 ship date. Still, it could be worth it to enjoy the luxury of skipping Walmart for the next 2 weeks.

Found these today. Didn't notice a Jet, but then again I have a blind spot when it comes to Clones these days. I did get Vos and the Geonosian, who is wickedly cool.

Has anyone spotted this Wave at a Target or TRU yet? I am getting severely beaten down hitting multiple Walmarts every day looking for a better carded Vos and Cato for openers. It's been a good 3 weeks or so now that these have been in circulation, that's a pretty good head start for one giant retailer over another. When are the other guys going to catch up?

Around here the wave hit all at once, one case per store, and sold through almost immediately Thanksgiving week. All of the stores that had these here have since restocked 2-3 times but never put out any more Wave 5 cases - just more of Wave 4, revision 1.

Heck, it'd be nice if HTS would restock these already. Any excuse I can find to stop hitting stores this time of year is worth it.

Back up at HTS as of 4pm CST.  Use HOLIDAY2010 to save 25%, free shipping if you spend over $50 after the discount. ;)

Well, I bit the bullet and picked up another Cato and Vos, along with the Droid Tri-Fighter. (The HMP is sold out ALREADY!) Thanks for the tip, Jeff.

I am officially done with Walmart!  ;D

FYI for anyone interested: I found 2 cases of this wave tonight at TRU, right off the truck. The box was marked "W5R1". Great timing as they still had the 2 for $9.99 sale going on. Might be worth checking around your local TRU tomorrow to knock out this wave for $20.

First sighting I have heard of this wave outside of Walmart...

Found some of these at a Wal Mart in Minnesota, but the system wasn't recognizing them. Finally got a set, but it was a pain.

This was the case weeks ago when I bought mine too, and now that I have doubles/triples I have started returning a few and run into the same issue. Weird. They all rang up fine at TRU, so I assume it must be some sort of Wally gaffe.

I've seen a healthy supply of this wave recently, which is great - even the Cato "helmeted" variant.  ::)
