I should post the picture of me in Cardiff holding three Wedges in thier TRU.

Hate to ask again, but can someone confirm that the Tan battle droid in this line is a new paint job?

It has a new paint job. The new battle droid is similar in appearance to the 2007 SL version, but it is a different shade of tan and the number on the backpack is reversed. (8311 instead of 1138, or something like that)

Our friends at Hobbystock.cn have all 3 MH Light-Up figures in stock on their Ebay store as of right now.  That's a pretty slick way to get them all if you're wanting them.

Vader's all I'm after but I know others were wanting Obi and QGJ too, who have been rough to find in my area at least.

I just bit the bullet and ordered those three.

I still haven't seen a single figure past wave 1 in stores.

Can someone give me an idea of what's come and gone at retail concerning wave 2 of these?  Did I already miss it or is it still too soon.  Seems to me like it should have been around months ago but I never saw a single thing past wave 1.

Do I need to start looking for these elsewhere?

I still see some of these around.

The "new" Darth Maul, Light-up Obi-Wan and Light-up Qui-Gon are all present in the Wave 3 case with the Light-up Vader and updated Hoth Pilot Luke figures - and that wave is still hitting. I picked up Luke and Vader just the other night at my Target.

The remaining three figures - Jar Jar, Padme and Anakin are still hanging around in a couple of WalMarts around me - mostly Padme and Jar Jar, but Anakin can be found if you look hard enough.

If you're going for one-of-each figure, then you need the Jar Jar, but if you're just looking for an updated version of the character, wait for the new Vintage/Lost-line-look release of him, it's a much better version with lots more articulation and no ridiculously big gun that he can't hold.

I hope that helps.

I'm going one of each unique sculpt / paint job. So there are a handful I'm looking for... Jar Jar, Anakin, Padme...

I managed to get the light-up saber figures off eBay last week.  But I literally haven't seen any of the "new" movie heroes figures.

Can't believe that I've actually been happy to find the electronic lightsaber Qui-Gon and MH Jar Jar over the past week.  Things are really lean when you get excited about finds like this.

I found just about all of the new wave 2 and 3 figures on Amazon last week.  Worth a look if anyone still needs these.

Jedi Temple Archives reports figures are showing up in Singapore...Boba Fett with climbing backpack, exploding tan Battle Droid, light-up saber ROTS Anakin and light up blaster Sandtrooper.

That last one was a surprise, I thought he'd debut in 2013.

Surprising but not entirely. It had been planned for release this year based on those leaked case assortments back in February.

Found the electronic lightsaber version of Darth Vader tonight.  It's okay.  Even thought the lightsaber arm is static, the sculpt is far better than the Power FX Darth Vader from the POTF2 days.
