He was referring to the armored Vader figure.

Ah I hadn't seen him yet.  Was he put out late last night because I don't recall pics of him at all.

some thoughts......

maybe is time for a new Bespin Fatigues Luke, based on this Dagobah training figure.

The legs of Dagobah training Luke reminds me of the legs of tvc Hoth Luke, indeed larger than flawed moldmust correct the snwospeeder pilot and dagobah landing pilot with kinda those legs, but fixed hips.

I like the look of this lot, should be a fun wave to get a hold of. My only criticism is in regards to Yodas lush head of hair. Does anyone else think they kind of overdid it with the hair a bit?I always kind of preferred the balder look with maybe a couple strands here and there.

This was a very nice surprise. Of course I'm stoked about the Snowtrooper commander.

Wondering how obtainable this wave will be...  Wave 3 hit online long before brick and mortar...  Actually, has it even hit brick and mortar at all?  I know I never saw any locally.  Some wave 2, but just dribs and drabs, mostly at Target and K-Mart and nowhere else.

Stores don't have much on the pegs though...  Mine are all pretty devoid of Black Series 4" figures in any quantity.

I'm ordering a case online, pretty much no matter what. Hopefully they show at HTS like Waves 2/3 have. Great job on Hasbro's part to make these available.

Another sale with free shipping would be awesome as well.

That'd be awesome indeed, but those have been few and far between this year TILL Christmas.  :-\

I've ordered Waves 1, 2, and 3 by the case from EE and they've been pretty good about offering a free shipping promo with each Black Series 3.75" case pre-order.  That's probably where I'll nab a Wave 4 case from, once they go up for pre-order that is.

I'll probably regret not getting more figures during that sale than I wanted (just Vizam).  I guess I'm losing interest in collceting to where I don't buy the new version of Luminara or Neyo, unless it's a better version of an Classic Trilogy character I don't really care much.  But having said that, with that sale, and it seems like most on here took advantage of it (and other sites as well), I'm wondering if I'll ever see any of the other waves in-store.  It seems like the local stores are clogged with wave 1 and they don't seem to be moving.

I'm a little concerned about availability as well. Since I ordered all three wave on-line so far, I haven't had motivation to hit the stores, but my impression is that wave 2 is struggling to find its way to the shelves. I'm definitely a bargain hunter, but with the ease of ordering on line and having stuff shipped to my door is by far outweighing the hassle of hunting, gas, car wear and tear or sales I might miss. Also leaves me more time to work on other projects, so I'm really hoping that Hasbro keeps up with getting new waves. I just hope retail back up doesn't threaten the entire line again. I know EE seems to be the fail safe, but ordering by the case seems overly expensive given that half of them are straight re-issues.

Is there a case assortment for this wave yet?
