K-Mart's Pegs are reset, and room for Black series (both), Mission Series, and Legends...  Same prices as everyone else.  No space (yet) for exclusives.

These are now the only new SW toys I haven't seen yet. None of the Targets around here have gotten any along with the other new items. Curse you TVC DPCI!

Found leftovers at a Hastings today.  Luckily, one of the leftovers was a Biker Scout, which the only one I really wanted from this wave.  I know it's just like the one that came with the TRU Speeder Bike, but still, one can never have too many Biker Scouts, right?

I heard that the Scout has some black marks on his belt, which the TRU version didn't have.  I'm also curious if the shoulder joints are molded in white this time or still black.  If they're white, I might buy them just for that reason alone.  I felt the black was an eyesore.

Far as I've heard, they have the black pin everyone hates.  Matching pins to the color they should be seems to be something Hasbro has cut corners on in the manufacturing process...  I don't know if it's them doing it to save $ or the factory doing it and Hasbro not able to make them adjust.  It's happening way too much these days though.

Got a chance to open the figures I picked up from this wave today, well done.  It is a strange wave, because it seems like all of the figures are very well done (I was particularly surprised by the Anakin), but it just isn't all that exciting for some reason.  I don't know if it is because of so many re-dos, or if it is due to the wait, or what.  Plus, I'm a person who usually likes seeing resculpts of the main characters - so it isn't that.  I didn't get the entire wave, but what I did get (Luke, Biggs, Scout, Anakin, Padme, and Vader) were all great - just didn't generate a lot of excitement.  I have to say though, of what we've seen of the first three waves of this line, I think Vizam is the most exciting figure to me.

As a side note, our Target reset this week as well, and filled the pegs with a fresh case of TPM revisions.  There was a Vader and Hoth Luke included in there, but otherwise more TPM stuff staring back.  The pegs are even labeled "SW Vintage" still.

My Target was the same way too - it was restocked with the Malgus wave.

Placed a pre-order for 2 cases of Wave 2 from EE today - and I found two Yavin Luke's and one Padme - so I just need to find another Padme and I'll be done with Wave 1, since I'm not getting any of the other figures in this wave until my Wave 2 cases ship....  :-\

Saw these for the first time today at Walmart over lunch...all but Luke anyway. The cardbacks seemed ok, figures looked alright but nothing in this wave I care about.

Finally scored the whole wave.  The last figure on my list was Padme, and I finally found her yesterday.  But I almost lost the figure before I even got to the register at TRU, because the bubble nearly came completely off of the cardback in the store!

Found most of Wave 1 at a Wal-Mart this morning, literally hidden behind a cardboard WWE aisle display. Luke and Padme were there so I snagged them, and will probably put an order in for Wave 2 online sometime soon. Cardbacks were glued on pretty well on all of the figures, looking like most of our usual standards.

Only other figures I saw were Vader, the Scout and the Clone Pilot.
