That and sent them here...  We've steadily gotten wave 4/5 at WM now during the "downtime" it seems, but not much is pegwarming from it.  AOTC was a good wave.

It's sad when TRU is charging the same as the friggin' Disney theme parks.  I mean, seriously that's a whole new level of lameness.

So that's what Hasblo did with the AOTC wave.   ::)

actually if you check ebay there are TONS of full, unopened cases of all of the currently HTF waves. I bet thats where all the retail stock has ended up, espcially if they just sent one case to each store.

Just seeing all those AOTC figures at a Disney Store, no less, made me angry at the Target stores near me, haha.

Jango Fett (Saga Legends) for $5 at one Wal-Mart. At another Wal-Mart I got 5 Xizor/Leia comic packs for $1 each. Yes, $1 each. But that's Legacy stuff, techincally. (They had GI JOE Cobra Gunships for $10).

picked up weequay (diplodocus version) and AT-RT. I just liked the AT-RT card too much to pass. This was at Target, and when I got my 65 cents back after handing over a $20, I found myself missing $5-6 figures very much.  :-[

Around here each store gets no more than one of each case, and I haappened to walk in just after a stocking and find ALL of wave 6, 1 whole case. First figures I have found in months.
Picked up Lando, Fi Ek, Weequay and ATRT driver.

Local Wal-Marts restocked with Wave 6... snagged Fi-Ek Sirch, Weequay and a second Senate Guard. Just need another Clone and Dagobah Luke and I'm done with Wave 6... STILL no sign of Wave 4 at all.

What is the new version of Wave 3?

The new version has Wedge in it (I assume that's what the "new" means).  I've not seen it, but then again I'm not bending over backwards to find it either I guess.  I'd like Wedge, but I'm feeling like a rush to get anything is a waste of gas anymore.

I'm definitely bending over backwards, forwards and every which way to find not only Wedge, but another Gammo. This assortment has just not hit here yet. Apparently none of the peeps on JD have found him either.
