It could easily have been a return from another store, or a return on a receipt using a figure someone didn't want in place of what they did want...  It's hard to say.

It could just as easily be that you missed a case of figures...  Obi-Wan is one who tends to sit from that assortment, but it'd be odd not to see all the other stuff from it that tends to sit.  *shrugs*

WM is the place to be for 4...  I have seen it in bulk at this point, except Jango and Anakin.  All the rest, tons.  Someone bought me an extra Senate Guard tonight that's been hanging out for about a month now.

Yeah, probably; I remember hearing something similar to this before. It had never really crossed my mind before that they could be returned. I'm still hoping to see these in bulk sometime soon, though.

Could have been from wave 6.

I was VERY surprised to see a case of this wave show up at one of my local stores recently.  And because of that I finally was able to score Jango Fett.  Convenient for me, yes.  But it only serves to highlight just how screwed up distribution really is when a case of Wave 4 turns up like this when Wave 7 is finally starting to show up in stores.

All I ever saw from this wave was the Blue Senate Guard.  If he was even from this wave?  I can't remember.  I wanted Zam, Jango, Anakin, Padme, Kenobi.  Oh well maybe someday?

Anakin is in stock at HTS. Kenobi should be easy to find - he was in the Wave 6 case so in my area he's quite common.

If the Wave 7 case ever starts hitting, that will result in more Jangos hitting the pegs. Unfortunately it seems that Zam and Padme are going to be limited to the Wave 4 case.

It makes sense being they're the only female characters in this wave. It's a shame they're being limited to one case, as they appear to be doing more or less very well at retail.

Like was mentioned with Wedge, you never know where Zam (or a less likely Padme) might resurface in future assortments.  It seems to me Hasbro is currently looking at ways to refresh things, and get the line back on track...  Case assortments are probably getting some serious tweaking right now.  There isn't even a pre-order available for the next wave though, so who knows who may make a return in a future case?

They've repacked Obi-Wan and the Senate Guard in Wave 6... Obi-Wan is the big pegwarmer from that wave, at least around here. In fact, there's one local WM that has 4 pegs full of AOTC Obi-Wans and 4 pegs full of ROTS Obi-Wans :o

I found this entire wave at Wal-Mart last night. I bought Kit and Jango, and left the rest. I thought about buying a second Zam, but decided against it.

It's because of things like this where a wave that should have shipped around the 2010 holiday season is still in the pipeline that causing the difficulty in getting a wave like the RFT one out to the pegs now...  >:(

Happened into a K-Mart yesterday and picked up a Mace, Kit and SBD. With the exception of Jango, which I'll pick up in wave 7, I'm finally done with this wave.

I found yet another Wal-Mart in my area that restocked this entire wave.

EDIT: Today I found a third store that has stocked this wave.   ???
