I haven't seen any 6"... any Legends, and only about 3 Black Series figures.  I'm not running all over town, but over the last few weeks I've been to a few stores and it's non-existent.

Carded Wave 2 images

No Luke or Kenobi shown.
That is because they are part of wave 3.

Peg warming here...  Wave 2, I actually would buy stormie to cast the helmet, Boba to cast it, and Rex x2 to custom into a poseable version. :/

Right now tons of wave 1 here.

I spoke about 5 hours too soon... wandered into a Target after work and found the whole wave.

Big Lots carrying them for $5 each. 20% off purchases tomorrow for card members. $4 might not be too bad.

Got a pair of the new SL Stromtrooper from overseas yesterday, and I have to say this is my favorite modern Stormtrooper hands down:



He doesn't have the articulation, but I have ones that do, and it's the best sculpt they've ever done. Especially the helmet. Also got Luke, who also is my favorite Jedi Luke so far, sculpt wise. I love the approach on these figures. Hopefully the trend continues!

I ordered Wave 2 (Boba, Rex, Cody, and two Stormies) online for $6 apiece. While I'm not in love with this line, I do like them, but I also didn't feel like wasting time hunting for these new figures. The Stormies look great in pics online, so I'm curious to see if that holds up in person. And finally, a realistic Rex at long last!  ::)

I'm hoping to nab a REx to customize, but that's it.

I need a Rex too. WTF is the hold up on this wave? And the next wave of Mission Series 2-packs? How do they expect to move these after Christmas?

I think the hold up is what they have out there now...  These have been selling here slowly over the holiday, but slowly, and they don't generally see steep discounts except that BOGO dealio at TRU this past week.

Scored 10 of the 5 POA $5.99 stormies  at HTS, I have to say the helmet sculpt is very very nice.  I had to behead one and mod the head onto an SA body.  This is the result:







As someone who always thought the previous Stormtrooper helmet sculpts were tremendously flawed, this is basically a dream come true.  PS the mod on the head took 5 minutes tops.

Well, I finally saw Wave 2 on the pegs today at TRU and wouldn't you know it, the only figure I wanted was already gone, so no Captain Rex for me. That is one nifty looking Stormtrooper though...

Might be worth molding and casting the helmet with a mod but it'll cost so I doubt I bother for a while.  Bumps the Stormtrooper up to a fig I might care about now tho.

These look great, and I just enjoy this line for what it is.

However, if these things had been on Vintage style cards, but the size of the new Vader card, this line would be amazing.
