YAY!  More Walmart Exclusives!  That's awesome.  Now I just need Wal-Mart to build a store within 20 miles of my house and I'm all set.

IIRC, Mawhonic is also in this wave

Joy, because the 30AC Wal-Mart waves were so easy to find. ::)

I want to see better pics of this... they were describing "neat features" during the panel, but the stream was blurry and I couldn't really tell much of what I was seeing...

Looks like a really nice wave, but I'm not super psyched that it is a WM exclusive.  Those have been very hit or miss around here the way it is (figures, vehicles, etc.), and our local store hasn't had anything but ROTS clones and Sandtroopers on the pegs for pretty much all of 2011 (and the pegs are still packed).  Unless Hasbro comes and takes some of those away, or WM clearances them down to like $3 or something, I don't see them moving anytime soon.

There's some figures I probably won't be seeing. 3 Wal-Marts near me. How many carried the AT-ST? None. One got the Dewback. One had Jabba, briefly.

Cantina Band tins, none. First and second comic pack waves. NONE. Jabba band sets. NONE. I am Your Father's Day set. Nada (not that I wanted that one).

Biggest toy retailer in the USA, but their distribution is horrid.

The Naboo Royal Starship droids are finally complete :) I hope the naboo pilot comes with the trenchcoat.

Love the wave, but hate exclusive waves of new figures.

Man, that TPM shelf is going to need some serious changes now that all these vastly superior updates are coming out.

Yeah, this is actually a pretty cool wave now that I see pics of it. But WM exclusives are very hit or miss. I think I've been lucky because the only WM exclusive I've never seen is the A-Wing from a few years ago, but it'll still be tough to track these down.

Might pass on the Gungan (doesn't look any different from the TLC version at first glance) and the Astromech (they have the new smaller body mold I thought they were going to utilize more)
