Shipping Sidious again might be a mistake. Old Man action figures aren't hot movers. The previous Sidious didn't ship much, and still hung around a few places, depending on where you lived.

Funny Obi-Wan isn't in there, but they have that figure in a deluxe and movie heroes without the cloak.

Other than Qui-Gon and perhaps Sidious, not a bad case to be honest... I would have preferred the new figures be packed 2 per case, or at least SOME of them be packed 2 per.

Itīs good to see the accesories on Jedi Luke, the Ben Kenobi Robe, the extra utility belt, so an slightly variant of him
with that belt and the right black globe would made the rotj Dagobah and Briefing Room from Home one Luke.

Want all the wave.

According to an Ebay seller these are supposedly "in-hand" for him, however I didn't really notice if this is confirmed or not.

However, I see 501st got these in Australia so they're at least not far off from US shores then, if the common trends hold true.  Early to mid March maybe, if the Ebay auction isn't figures from the US already of course?

There are 2 ads for these figures by the same seller. Seems like the 'in-hand' ones are cheaper than the pre-order.

As per our front page, these seemingly were found in Northern California at a Target there...  Multiple pics of them seem to back that up a bit so happy hunting.  They're not just on Ebay anymore. :)

Also, I got an email from site Sponsor Entertainment Earth that my case is in the warehouse and ready to ship.

How did a website I've never heard of before get the scoop on new SW swag?

I can't believe someone from 'Scum didn't break this first, dudes must be napping over there.

It's probably going to be weeks before we see these on the East Coast. That second wave of Deluxe sets was supposedly spotted at Target too, but no signs here at all. Everyone is still buried in those cruddy Wave 1 sets.

I'm pretty excited for this wave, but the one thing that annoys me is the incorrect robes on Luke. His robes in ROTJ don't have sleeves, just a hood.

Otherwise I'm stoked for these guys. That Mon Cal pilot is damn cool, and Colonel Cracken is a bad ass mutha!

Those two figures really are the stars of this wave for me.  The Luke is kind of interesting, but the Sandstorm figures are a little boring IMO.  That is, unless Lando comes with his Skiff Guard helmet, too.

While I don't feel The Force is on my side today, I must stop at Target on the way from work today.  I doubt these have made there way to Indiana...

What website gets new toys first really doesn't matter...  It just matters who happens upon them first at a store, and so far the guys that run that site/blog found them first in California.

Sites have to either get them from sponsors or find them at stores like everyone else.  Usually a site posts when one of its members finds something even, not their staff...  unless their staff happen to live in an area that is prone to getting things early like the West Coast.  Mike Sullenger from GalacticHunter lives out West I believe, and he's pretty fortunate to get things early I've noticed.

Cool that this wave is also shipping from Entertainment Earth too right now.  That wasn't a bad case pack really, as even the carry-forwards from Wave 10 were good figures like the Naboo Guard, Sidious, Maul, etc.  I haven't seen a Maul in the wild since I first saw Wave 10 (I knew that would be the case too).  Some of the others are becoming more common like Sidious and Vos, but still they're among the first to go I've noticed.

I cannot wait I have two cases on preorder from BBTS, I am looking forward to Lando the most. I will have to hunt for a couple more Lukes, Landos and Cracken for some other displays. The case pack here really is solid except for Qui-Gon who can easily be returned to the store. I hope the other waves follow suit and get released on time. I have yet to see the preorders for the next waves...
