Saw that on the Curto/Burns Twitter feed earlier.  Glad to see that 5 Below is getting some new assortments!

omg, omg, omg...is this what I've been waiting months for? The beginning of the appearance of "good" waves at 5 Below? Aayla/Nom/Starkiller/Shae?!?!

I mean, they can't just be getting cases of Gamorrean guards, right? This has to be part of a larger wave? Maybe the revision wave with Evazan?

I'll keep an eye peeled...  I told ya bigger and better things may be on the way to 5 Below.  My source was pretty spot on.  I'm just curious what wave it was that shipped?  Was it the original ROTJ wave?  That'd kinda be meh.  I'd rather see some of the newer waves that he was repacked in.

I hit the one up near my house and it was the same old, same old. Padmes, SBD, Weequays, Fi-Ek-Sircch, et al. Will definitely start checking their regularly going forward though.

I wish they would, I wanted to buy 6 of that guy but only found 2.

So...from the comments posted over at JTA, it sounds like this was the back-in-the-day revision wave with Wedge, NOT the wave Gammy was carried forward in earlier this year, which IMO was waaaaaay better.

So this is a little less appealing, to me at least. I guess we won't actually see all the missing waves from this year until 2013. That's a long time to wait for a Shae and Starkiller I refuse to pay a penny over MSRP for. Damn.

The figures in wave 3, Revision 11 cases were:

 1x VC14 Sandtrooper
 1x VC15 Clone Trooper (Ep III)
 1x VC20 Yoda
1x VC21 Gamorrean Guard
1x VC22 Admiral Ackbar
1x VC23 Jedi Luke Skywalker
1x VC24 Skiff Guard - Wooof (Klaatu)
1x VC25 R2-D2 with Lightsaber and Drink Tray
1x VC26 Rebel Commando
1x VC27 Wicket
1x VC28 Rebel Pilot Wedge Antilles
1x VC08 Darth Vader

Good news if you wanted that earlier Wedge release (the cards were different, weren't they?) I missed Wicket and never felt like paying after market for him. Heck, I could get two one for each hood.

I understand...  ;)  Plus I know you are busy with much more important things as well (or will be).  ;D

Yeah not the wave I'd have hoped to have seen.

NP!

Definitely very busy, but I squeezed in a visit to 2 x 5 Belows.  No Gammies yet.

MOTHERLODE!!!  ;D

I stopped by the same 5 Below I hit last night on the way home tonight just for kicks, and lo and behold, MULTIPLE CASES of TVC Wave 3 had been put out! From the looks of it, I was the first to arrive also...I laid quite a swath of destruction on them.

Walked out with 4 X Gammies
                          3 X Wickets
                          3 X Wedge (On the ORIGINAL card no less!)

If they had had more Gammies on the pegs, I would have bought every freaking one of them.

Definitely.  I'll be hitting up 5 Below a LOT this weekend.

Oh I hope for Fleet Troopers at some point.  Please, please please.  And in quantities to where he's not even moving so I can have my fill.

In other news local buddy got me, I think, a red bandana Kithaba.  Good times!
