Found a fresh case of this wave yesterday myself! Must be another round/shipment.

Of course they are showing up, I overpaid for Leia and Phasma last week.

Your welcome.

I can't believe that after all this time I spotted this wave in the wild yesterday.  I actually had to stop and look at the packaging since I had bought both Han and Leia from Tunghori, and I had never seen either figure boxed.

Since one of our new dogs chewed up my son's Captain Phasma, and the replacement figure was an add-on item at Amazon, I purchased TBS Phasma as well.  I like the figure and wish Hasbro would actually distribute these things so people can find them in the wild.

I picked up an extra set if anyone is still looking for these.

I noticed that BBTS has full sets of the WM figures available for sale.  Does this mean the "exclusive" set is being sold through other outlets or did they just buy these at WM and resell them?

Could be either - BBTS has been known to buy at retail and then scalp resell, but they have also had some luck ordering stuff through asian wholesalers (like when they offered the Japan sticker Black Series 6" SDCC excluisves in the past).  Could be they got a hold of some overseas cases and are breaking into sets and selling.

Shockingly, I found a Han Solo and Leia on the pegs at Walmart this morning!  I purchased the Han and a second Rey (to diplay with the hood on) and left the Leia.  I can see that one sitting on the pegs a bit.

I just saw Phasma on the pegs for the first time last night. Since the price had dropped to $10.83 I went ahead and bought it. Nice figure.
Don't even act like I didn't buy that doughnut...I got the documentation right here...

Considering how long it took this wave to get to retail, I would not be surprised if WalMart is farming out some stock to third parties.  Especially since they're going to need the peg/shelf space for the ROGUE ONE line rollout next month.
