Congrats on finding these at retail dude, but you might want to broaden your horizons a bit.  If finding new 6" figures was truly your best morning ever and you're that concerned about being the first to report a find, you might be a little too obsessed.  Just sayin'.

Seriously? Not sure why you would feel the need to post something like that, I was just trying to be helpful by passing along some information that some people may have found useful.

"Best ___ ever" is a common expression and I am pretty sure 99.9% of people are astute enough to not take that literally.

My point about the store report was not some inane "hey look at me" self-wank, it was intended as an example of irony as I personally have been really diligent about looking for the first Target sightings to be reported online and as luck would have it I was the first one to stumble across them it would seem. I'm not looking for cheap applause here.

Sorry if I offended anyone, feel free to ignore my posts in the future.

Back on topic, I hit several other Targets this morning and did not see any other new cases of Wave 1 out and about yet, so I must have caught an early re-stock at the store yesterday.

Saw this wave for the first time. Of course no Stormtrooper but I picked up Luke. I feel that he is a short on the accessories compared to wave 1.

Yeah, I have to agree...and Obi-Wan is even weaker, just the lightsaber. Definitely feels like skimping compared to Han, Sandy, etc.

Got my order from HTS today and the paint apps were a marked improvement over the ones I saw at Target. Still can't seem to get Obi-Wan's eyebrows right for some reason though.

No kidding. Since McMetal's post I've been hitting stores far more than my typical patterns. Alas, no luck yet.  :'(

I know I've been keeping a closer eye out, but alas, the local TRU reset with a couple cases of 2013 Wave 1 and the Targets and WMs are either not carrying them or filled with Slave Leias and Greedos.

You guys that are finding these at Target and TRU: where are you geographically?

I live in Virginia and I have found 1 case at Target but so far no sightings at TRU here, although they get 3 trucks this week starting today so I'm curious if their arrival is imminent there too...

Oh, kick ass! I'm also in VA and one store near me has had none in stock for a few weeks. Maybe they'll restock soon with the new wave. WOO! Thanks!

Got my Luke Bespin in the mail today from HTS. I really like him. I wish so much that these were cheaper so the line had a better chance of survival.

I suspect that the Stormtrooper is in-stock at HTS.  "no servers are available to take your request."

Well, we'll see if my order with tru.com went through... I know of your experiences with them, Justin, so I know I shouldn't be surprised if it gets cancelled.  But still, I talked to a TRU rep as I ordered who said they were in stock, so CS will get an earful if I don't get one.

Did you mean HTS or TRU? I hope it works for you.  I ordered the Legends Stormtrooper and the 6" Fett from TRU and both ended up cancelled.

Nick - they have been found at both TRU and Target in the Minneapolis area.
