Saw a set of Wave 2 at our local Target today as well, so they are filtering out there.  Hopefully availability won't become an issue with this line as it has with the 3 3/4" stuff over the past few years.

They definitely flew off the shelves right away here. I consider myself lucky to have found them the day theywere put out. I'm curious when these will start showing up at TRU and less traveled places like Barnes and Noble. (I have seen all of Wave 1 there)

Found all but Mara today.  Looks like people either want extra of her or she's hit the scalper-radar.  Another local collector found the same thing - five new figs, no Mara.

Picked up a wave 2 Slave Leia last night.  And she definitely caught the attention of the cashier when I was checking out!  All of a sudden she wanted to get into a conversation about Star Wars with me, and talking about the new movie, etc...

...And I'm just thinking to myself 'Why didn't I pick up Greedo instead?  Especially since I've got my daughter with me?!?!'

At least she was with you. Imagine what a perv you would look like buying a bikini clad figure for yourself. At least you can say it was for her.

As per a Tweet I made earlier, Wave 2's hitting K-Mart...  Saw Han.  Hard NOT to buy, honestly.  If $ weren't tight...  :-\

I am still hoping we might see this wave show up in force for Black Friday shopping, but I'm not holding my breath. Would be a missed opportunity though, they could sell a lot of Bobas.

So far I've seen parts of this wave at both K-Mart and Target. The nice thing (in my area, at least) is that the Wave 1 leftovers haven't kept Wave 2 from hitting. The four different stores I've seen new figures at each had several Lukes and R2s already on warming the shelves. I picked up Han and Boba, and I have a Greedo on the way from HTS. The Leias I have seen have all been googly eyed, so I've refrained from buying.

Amazon (Prime) has a few Fetts in stock for $22.99... a little more than I wanted but I ordered one.  It said they have 4 left.

Yeah Wave 1's not holding these up it seems...  I've yet to see Wave 2 of TBS outside of a Target having a lone 41st Clone, but I'm hopeful more 3.75" will ship...

The 6" though, I see most of Wave 1 still but now seeing Wave 2 at K-Mart and stragglers at Target is promising for that line.

I saw remnants of this wave at three different Targets today, Boba was missing at every store. Glad I got him when I did. I also finally found a decent Greedo on the third try. (good eyes, no errant paint splotches, etc) Look forward to opening him up finally.

All the Leias I saw had noticeably better paint jobs on the eyes than the first few I recall seeing too.
