I admit I am getting a little annoyed these have not shown up here yet, even though I have zero interest in them. As of yesterday , NONE of the Targets around here had reset. I guess they want to wait for a time when foot traffic in the store will be minimal. I do want to see those 6" figs up close.

I guess I just hate living in one of those places where finding new toys sucks. I would love to live in one of those places where people find stuff like 1-2 weeks early.

I feel ya, Toy R Us is so worthless that I only check it because Marshalls and Five Below are in the same shopping center. Even those Dollar Tree deals that some people got (Trek, Green Lantern) never arrived here.

I'd love to live in those countries that have fully stocked stores teeming with hard to find Vintage releases.

But then, I probably wouldn't speak the language, which means no job, etc...

They hit my local TRU today - unfortunately I couldn't be there at opening so I missed the Luke and Padme figures - left the rest.

I have a feeling this line is going to just SIT. The only reason why someone grabbed the Padme and Luke figures is because it is known that they have secondary market value. If they weren't getting any secondary market interest, those two figures would have still been there as well.

I got my Biggs and Luke from Amazon today.  Biggs bubble with really little effort fell right off.  The aisles might be littered with cardbacks and empty bubbles.

I've heard the cards aren't just **** to look at but poor quality.  Too funny.

I got my Amazon order yesterday, and the bubble on the Luke figure had completely fallen off in shipping.  Biggs was loose as well.

If you have all the parts and it just naturally fell apart and you didn't take it off the card yourself, isn't it technically MOC still? :)  Nobody opened it...  It just kinda opened itself.

I saw most of these yesterday, and for the first time since 1995, I just kind of shrugged at new figs on new cards.  It was seriously a downer.  I want Padme, and maybe Luke, but I just can not buy more of the same.  It breaks my heart to be so blah about the whole thing, but Hasbro, you finally lost me.

I have been looking for the 6 inch figures though.  No luck.

You know I felt the same way. I actually didn't even look at most of the figures. I grabbed Padme and the Pilot out of some sense I needed them - Padme happy about, the Clone I guess I don't know why I bought him - but I think this is really more to do with the selection. If those rumors about Toryn Farr and the Snowtrooper Commander come to pass, I'll be doing cartwheels. But this is very very blah right now.

Id' just like to find Padme and Luke at this point.  I feel left out right now.

I dunno, Jesse, I think these will be around awhile.

Wave 1 is now available at the Toys R Us site. You get free shipping on all orders over $79, as well.
Neither Snake nor Wesker, but a perfect combination of the two.

A friend of mine found the whole wave locally and offered to pick them up for me. Surprisingly, I passed and thanked him for the offer. This wave is probably going to be relatively easy to score and I didn't want to make my buddy wait since I was out of town for the past few days.

Like most people I think I'm going to snag Padme and Luke and then order a Wave 2 case online. Although watch those two get carried over to Wave 3.

My nearby Target has had the Luke on the pegs for about a week.  I'm surprised.
