I could see a February 10 launch date... my Wal-Marts have signs on the LEGO aisle hyping that they're putting out the new SW sets on February 10.

It looks like they recolored the Destroyer Droid Bubble to a more accurate color from the TAC version. I may picked up 4 when I see them. These were also spotted in GA. So the south seems to be breaking these out. Hopefully they will show up soon, I am looking forward to having all of the Pod Flags. ;)

So how many times can they put the same Quigon and Obiwan on different cardbacks and sell them at different price points?

Picked up the figures from this wave today, the display wasn't in the action figure aisle though. It was by girls toys. Is the drawback new? They had that exclusive as well.

No, that's the old Dewback, maybe a new/different deco, no figures, very lame.

Was it just an endcap display, or one of those standalone 4-way type deals?

I was worried something like this would happen...I hate how Walmart cannot keep all the SW toys in one aisle.

I'm assuming it's an aisle display, as that's seemingly what everyone's reported seeing.  I've heard nothing of an endcap, just the aisle thing posted out in front of the main action figure aisle or somewhere relatively close by (toys).

That's fine by me, I just hope they get ample supply of the wave.

It was on an endcap display, three sided, the front side had the figures and the sides were the vehicles and dewback. The droid seemed to the rarest of the bunch, only saw 3 of him in the whole display and it looked like i was the first one to get to it.

That's the first I've heard of an endcap now...  Hmmm.  Was it at a bigger or smaller WM?

I know one I frequent is a smaller store and they often got endcaps and never got the aisle displays.  Was the endcap on a main aisle or was it facing towards the back?

Found this wave today at my Walmart:



Bought these 4 and was able to use BOGO coupons no problem at all.  Left everything else, wasn't interested.

My finds were a little different than the others I read.  My Walmart just had exactly 1 of each figure in the wave hanging on the pegs with the rest of the Vintage and MH/CW stuff.

Also I found those 2 WM exclusive battle packs with the droids in their harnesses and the Sebulba one.

Love the orange trench coats on the Naboo pilots BTW.

I discovered the Force a little late missing Ric Olie but got the other 5 new figures and I picked up the improved Destroyer Droid. The sheild is recolored to reflect the movie more and you can see through it to recreate the sheild effect. I have to find three more now but it does look good. I like when they upgrade carry forward figures it gives me reason to buy them more.

I did not see an endcap they were just on the pegs with Qui-Gon and Yoda left. somepicked up Maul, Obi and Ric. I never thought I would go on the hunt for Ric Olie...the wave is great and I will buy several more Gungans and Naboo generics. Wal-Mart got the best deal as far as exclusives go.

I'll play "zero" and win.  Because they are one with the cardback, and need to be cut off.  It takes a pretty good effort with a pair of scissors.

Yeah that's how you can tell that you've really bottomed out.
