Good deal, although I open all these things anyway, disco Chewie did seem to lack any dignity in that old packaging. And they managed to turn an otherwise lackluster wave into a winner. SO glad they swapped out Obi-Wan here. Easy case order...

Curious if they will drop the Stormtrooper from Wave 5 now...

Even though I managed to track Boba down at Christmas I may spring for this whole case.

Let Jayson make a custom prototype Fett for you... complete with box.

Big changes!   

Chewie - OUT! (pushed out until the new blue/black package with larger window is running)

Fett and Stormtrooper - IN!  (see, Hasbro does love you after all ;))

6" Black Series Wave 4 Up for Pre-Order at EE!

This is great news. Seems like asking for a greatest hits wave of 4" figures isn't all that unrealistic after all...

That seems like a pretty smart move by Hasbro, it should allow a lot of people to catch up on these harder to find figures.

I'm pretty stunned by this intelligent move as well. Should bode well for the line over-all.

Allegedly this wave is showing up at Target now, but I'll believe it when I see it.

A local found these at Vintage Stock a few days ago...

Received my pair of Clone Troopers today. Let's just say I'm not overwhelmed at first glance....

I'll be interested to see if the new figures, Clone Trooper and Anakin, end up being the pegwarmers in this bunch with the Stormtrooper and Boba selling through faster.

I'm seeing Obi all over as the latest peg warmer.  I'm sure Anakin isn't far behind.

This wave is totally MIA here, and pretty much every single retail location is drowning in pegwarmers, so I don't expect it to show up any time soon. I know it is early yet, but I still have a bad feeling about this one. By the time most of these places get around to ordering again we'll be on the Vader wave.

Took some quick shots of how I modified my 6 inch Clone Trooper, so that he can actually look up a bit and really bend his arm quite a bit further.

Have yet to see these at retail here in the US.  I did see a bunch of this wave while in Paris, but wasn't going to pay 25 Euros for it.

Of course, my local TRU got Wave 3 in already (Sandtrooper), so it's skipped a wave.

I thought I had heard something about this wave turning up at Disney stores. I'm actually on my way to one to check that out right now.
