I guess it does make sense since he's supposed to be about Luke's height, but damn I don't care for that sculpt.  Looks too stubby or something, especially compared to the Snowspeeder Luke sculpt.  Maybe I'm being too picky though.

Not really being too picky at all.

Time for the product to be better given it's not cheap.

I hope they re-use Snowspeeder Luke now to get us a SS Wedge.

That's why I bought an extra Dack.

Same here.

Yeah, I want that Wedge badly.  I don't want to buy a whole case just to get him though.  I have low hopes of actually seeing him at retail.  We'll see though.  I finally saw the Endor Capture Luke cardback and some numbnuts had bent the corners on two that were hanging on the shelves.  I can't believe some idiots still do that crap but they do  ::)

So Wedge is apparently out in stores now, according to JTA, but they did not mention which store so I have no idea where to start hunting this. Has anyone on the West Coast seen it yet? He's already on eBay too, for a ridiculously inflated premium.

I'm buying every one of this dude that I see!

Only dudes on otheR Sites apparently.

I have seen none of the tell-tale leftovers from that wave - Ackbar, Gammos, etc around here at all.

I can sort of see why people are freaking out over it, Wave 7 is already hitting now, and peg space is at an all time low it seems.

I'm guessing that Wedge is getting some scalpers back into the fray as I've noticed an increase in interest in SW at the stores over the last week or so. The regular WH guy who usually couldn't give a crap is starting to make it a point to make it to the SW section before I do and random people who I've never seen before are making a dash to the SW section. Good thing there's not been anything new  yet.

Surely in these Dark Times that'd be an impossible thing to do. :(

The wave 3 rev.11 case is back up for order on the Entertainment Earth site. I doubt this is ever going to show up at retail, at least in any volume at this point and in my area. I searched for weeks and never found any of it. My local Target has not stocked any TVC in over a month and the others in my area have rarely put anything out, they're just not getting anything. Walmart isn't doing much better. I finally broke down and hit up TRU and was lucky enough to get Logray but passed on the rest of the wave as they all had banged up bubbles and figured I'd leave the RFT's for others. I talked to the guy there and he hadn't seen any of wave 3 come back through since it originally shipped.

I can't say I'm looking particularly hard for Wedge, but I know I also haven't seen him anywhere either.

Well, I know all those ones showing up on eBay aren't just from online sellers. Dude is out there somewhere. But ya, I've pretty much given up. It's been over 6 weeks now since I bought a new SW toy, don't see that changing anytime soon either.

I have noticed this too - especially at TRU on the truck days - there are more folks interested in the SW section lately, and so far, there hasn't been anything to be had.

The other unfortunately thing that happened at the TRU I can easily be at for opening is that an assistant manager from another store who was notorious for selling stuff out the back to scalpers has been transferred to this store. So I can't help but think that the reason that this store has NEVER gotten in the latest vintage or clone wars waves may be because of him.  >:(
