Wait, there's a wave 9?  Was there a wave 8?  What about a wave 7?  Hasbro is still making vintage figures past wave 5?  I did not know this.

Heard from a fellow local collector that he was able to snag this wave at Walmart this morning, great news.

Hope we see a good saturation, not just 1-2 stores.

Saw remnants of Wave 9 (Bastila Shan and repacks) at Super Target today.  Was hoping for Walrus Man and the Echo Trooper, but oh well.

I found Walrus man and the RFT a couple of days ago. There's something about figures from A new Hope... picking them up gives me the best star wars addiction buzz...

Agreed. I get the same feeling from any of the OT figures. The prequel figures I'm still happy to get, but it's more of a "ok, I've got that, what's next?" feeling.

Finally found my Ponda, Bastila, RFT, and Hoth Rebel at a Mid MO Smalmart.  Hoth Rebel looks outstanding!

Bought these last week and haven't even had time to open them or even take them out of the bag.  :'(  Things have sucked here of late.

Saw a Logray and Jango at WM this afternoon, knew they were from this wave because they had the sticker for the Proto Fett mailaway. Interestingly enough another collector was at the same store at like 8 this morning and said all they had was a Ponda Baba, so they must have been there a while.

I found one of each of Ponda and the Rebel trooper at K-Mart, and hated paying $10 each for them (but I figured just in case...).  I'm glad to hear they're showing up at WM though, because I need about 4 or 5 more rebels!

Not showing up here locally yet. I will continue my early morning and late afternoon patrols of stores in southwest TN and NW Mississippi up to mid November, but then not found by then I will sadly have to go second market.

If nothing else, order a case from EE on our front page Sybeck...  But they're just surfacing at WM here, and Target's barely gotten any in locally, so they're just now starting to move around a bit I think.

I got my set at KM, and haven't seen a sniff anywhere else, but others have found them at Target and WM stores.

Hard to justify a full set when I need three. That may change though real soon.

Yeah, it at least gives you extra army builders though.  I have to say, it's a decent case assortment even with a lot of the repacks.  And a lot of them seem like they could sell easily enough to recoop some cost.

I probably bought 80% of the case I found in the wild.  Not much I didn't want out of it.  I even took the Vader just for the card variation's sake, and same with the B-Winger since I really like the character (Keyan Farlander) getting a carded figure with his name and all.
