This probably means no new SKU for vintage, which I thought there was going to be.  Also means pegwarmers will continue... and that I now have to go to Target.

Later!

Funny, I was thinking the exact opposite.  Thank goodness the DPCIs are the same, so that I still have time to return extra figs and great news that I can find these at Target vs. having to drive to a WM or TRU.   ;)

Looks like this wave is showing up at Target!

Source?

Was this the wave due out on 1/30?

Now my Target stores will all FINALLY stock something, but it will all be Wave 5 Vintage. ;)

They've not put a new figure out in quite some time.  Months I'd say.

The few reports that have come in so far say they are ringing up under the 087-06-1351 DPCI.

I'll add myself to the "that's a bummer" group - I was hoping they'd clear out the 1351 dpci so I could pick up some nice fodder on the cheap before they rolled out the new stuff with a new DPCI.  Now, if that number is staying, I have to get annoyed because my local Target has 6x Cloud Car Pilots and 3x AotC Troopers warming the pegs, which will probably keeping me from seeing the TPM stuff anytime soon there.   ::)

My Target has had the same sandtrooper on each peg, and one or two empty pegs, since they cleared off shelves.  It's pathetic.  Though the one bright spot for me is maybe they've been waiting for this?

Yeah, I doubt that too.

Is this case even up for order/preorder on bbts or EE?  I do not see it.  I'd just order a case or two for sure.

this is what I was wondering too.  I pretty much want all of the figures except for like 2 - and I could exchange those two at Target for something else easily.

Isn't it more than a little unusual for a wave to be round at retail before online sellers even have a case up for preorder?

This is weird.

Saw this way first hand on the pegs. Hard to pass up as they look fantastic, but I think it's time to leave the PT behind.

I wonder if it's a situation similar to the 1st wave of Indy figures. Retail had such a demand for those at the time my online retailer order was canceled because Hasbro was shipping everything to retail for an expected rush in demand. In this instance I'd take a guess that Hasbro supplied the entire wave direct to retail first to make sure the shelves had product for Christmas and didn't even give online retailers an option to offer it. It's a stretch but it's possible. Odd though since you'd think most retailers like Walmart and Meijers would have a backstock of past waves at their warehouse/stockroom because they couldn't restock pegs due to the warmers. I know I've had luck the few weeks before Christmas in the past where a really old wave of stuff got stocked because a box or two was found hiding in the back.

Found remnants at Target today. Maul, Battle Droid, Naboo Soldier, Dofine, Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon. Only snagged Maul and the Battle Droid since I figured I'd see the others again at some point. (This means they'll be HTF so get em when you see em!)

Oh, they rang up at $8.99. Well Maul did, the Droid didn't ring up at all, confusing my elderly cashier. So she scanned Maul twice. Thought I might get the dreaded DO NOT SELL but luckily that wasn't the case.

Plastic crack i tell you.

Me all this week:

"Yeah, I think I'll cut back, less figures for me, etc."

Me today when I found new stuff:

"GIMMEGIMMEGIMME"

Didn't ring up?  That's interesting...  Not typical for Target.

Yes, this is the crack I was referring to.  Irresistable.
