i have yet to see one at retail  :-\

Me either. Hey Jared whats the DCPI number for Col. 2 figures? Maybe I'll have to do that myself.

If I may jump in on Jared's behalf, the DCPI is 087 06 1328.

No, I have three of them and only one of them looks like it has a broken leg. I didnt notice it until I got home.

If you have and an xacto knife, you can carefully cut a bigger hole and the leg comes out clean.

Stupid way to the put the figure in the bubble though.

I would have much rather had the #41 SA body as well or heck, even the #6 QD, but all in all I am happy to have the ones that I have gotten so far. In less the 48 hours I went from having none to finding six, being given two more as a gift, and two beyond that in trade. It's ten more of these figures then I thought I would end up with. ::)

Hey guys, I can definitely confirm that the Tac Ops trooper will reuse the AT-TE Gunner body, since I received a reply stating such from Hasbro today.

I'm glad Hasbro finally cleared that up - I've got 4 Tac Ops troopers now and I've set them next to some Gunners and some #41 clones and over the last 2 weeks I haven't been able to figure it out.

Finally I can sleep peacefully.

The 501st Troopers hit KBtoys.com late last night -- I was able to score a few before they went out of stock.  So might be a good idea to keep checking them.  They were only in stock for like 10 minutes...

I'm half tempted to order the case from EE.com that contains the new astromech droid, two 501st clones and the holograph figures.

I'm afraid that this wave will not hit the midwest.

Just drive north a few hours - it's been appearing pretty regularily at Target here in MN.   :)

Granted, the 501st Clones are the first to go, but the Astromech and Holo-Jedi have been spotted around town a number of times and the Wookiee is getting more common.  I think by the time Christmas rolls around, these will start appearing in greater numbers. 

There are three different case assortments shipping right now for Wave 6 of Collection 2, and the 501st Clone trooper is at 2x per case in each of the 3 case packs.

I wonder why that is?  Your MN thread is hoppin while our IA thread is pretty slow.   I must say, you have a great bunch of collectors in your area.  I'm jealous with envy!
