That's what I'm afraid of.

Saw this Wave restocked at TRU this morning, but was not sure what to look for in regards to the stormtrooper helmet. Couldn't tell which Skiff Guard neck it was either.

I also saw this wave stocked today at Target but I didn't need anything.  The Skiff Guard had the long neck.

Incredibly, after not coming across one case of wave 4, and still not having the set, I came across enough wave 6 cases to put together a squad of Stormies, and then replace them all with the updated version. 18 cases as opposed to 1/2. Weird.

I went to 2 WMs yesterday looking for some Captain America Wave 2 figs and came out empty handed, but I did see one of the smaller WM put out a case of this wave, and the Super WM had I think 4 pegs overflowing with this wave

Spotted remnants of this wave at a local WM today, specifically Weequay, Clone, Senate Guard and Luke. I had them in my hand but decided to pass at almost $9 a pop. I'm... not that upset to be honest.

I have been looking for the short neck Weequay but I think I may hit eBay because I am sick of the clogged or empty pegs. I am surprised the only carry forward of this wave is the EP2 Clone in the future cases. I figured Luke and the AT-RT driver would be carried forward but thus far they are not. Get them while you can.

Try Target.  Most of the Targets in Mpls got this wave in the last week or two.

Basically how I felt today. I did get Weequay, because at least he's never been made. Plus I'm sick of feeling how far behind the rest of the world I seem to be in even finding these damn figures.

A Wal-Mart having a shelf tag for $4.50 Saga Legends, then them  scanning up as $7.88 didn't make me happy, either.

Saw the revision tonight, picked up the fixed Weequay and Stormie...  Luke and AT-RT Driver were gone.  That AT-RT Driver is the surprise mover from that wave.  The AOTC Clone is way easier to get...  I think it's again competition with the Legends line, while the AT-RT Driver hasn't been around since I guess 2005.

Finally saw the Weequay from this wave.  Now I want a redo of the original weequay even more!

something about that AT RT guys articulation feels wonky, especially around teh hips and shoulder.
So I stopped at two but otherwise was planning on going nuts on them

I've bought 4 of the AT-RT driver so far... really a great figure.
