I've seen the latest wave too, the TIE Pilot and stuff.  Is Rey repacked in there because I see her/BB8 a bit too.  Not a ton, but she's popping back up locally.

Yes, she is re-packed in Wave 3 too. It is a slightly upgraded version from the previous release as I understand it. Very minor differences mostly. The repacked Kylo is a lot different...I posted about him in the Wave 3 thread.

I happened to find a TIE Pilot, General Hux, Snowtrooper, and Ello Asty at WM last weekend.  Just sitting on a shelf randomly away from the regular SW section, but I was happy to pick them up.  Really like the Snowtrooper design for this movie, and the TIE pilot is pretty nice too.

Found a case of Wave 3 last night on my way home from work - so I grabbed the Rey/BB-8 out of it since I hadn't picked her up yet. Originally I was only going to get First Order characters, but that darn Poe/Stormtrooper 2-pack prompted me to want to get a set of the heroes, so I'm probably going to order Chewie from Hasbro Toy Shop and also pick up Han when I finally stumble onto that wave.

Not sure if I want to bother with the Guavian Enforcer or Constable Zuvio - I suppose if I pick up a Zuvio, I'd be helping "the cause" hehe

Okay - so in order to get free shipping from Hasbro Toy Shop, I went ahead and picked up the 6" Chewie, Pilot Poe Dameron and Guavian Enforcer figures. I know several locations locally where Zuvio is still hanging around, so I'll pick him up on the way home tonight... Then all I'll need for TFA 6" 'completeness' will be to find Asty, Han, Finn and the Flametrooper as well as pick up one of those big TIEs (still not sure about that one).

Found an unexpected OT Stormtrooper on the pegs at Walmart and it rang up for only $9...got to love that. Must have been a return or random in-store find.

Still no sign of the Jango wave here.  :(

Went looking for the 3 3/4" exclusive wave at Wal-Mart this morning, and happened across Wave 5 (Han, Jango, FN-2187, Flametrooper) which was a nice surprise. Also found the Emperor's Wrath Vader at Walgreens, so pretty good morning.

Stopped by a Walmart store after work today looking for the Han and Rey 3.75" wave.  Lo and behold I found about 10 of the new 6" Black series First Order Flametroopers. There was a 6" Phasma, but no sign of the rest of the new 6" figures.  It almost looked like this store had received solid cases of the Flametroopers.

I found the Wave 5 6" and there's a lot of reports of this wave hitting heavy. Was the same with wave 3. But no sign of wave 4. How very odd.

And of course as soon as I put in the online order I find these in person. Walmart had like 5 cases of this wave out this morning, exactly what I always wanted to see stores do rather than this one measly case at a time nonsense. Props to them for helping me get everything I wanted in one fell swoop.  :)

Just puttin' this out there...you Minnesota cats seem to be blessed with a lot of Green Helmet Resistance Troopers. I would gladly trade any of the new Wave 5 figures for a greenie, PM me if interested. ;)

True, but we are sorely lacking on wave 4 and 5 thus far.   ;)  If I come across another Green Top I'll grab him for you.
