I found one yesterday. I don't care that it's not the SA sculpt, I didn't find a Gunner before now. I love him. Especially the helmet.

I've heard this wave is showing up at Sears stores with their holiday setup.

Of course, my local one DIDN'T get this wave, but for the rest of the country that doesn't get perennially ****** on Star Wars toy distribution, it's likely sitting there just waiting for you.

I was in a Sears Grand for the first time the other day...  They seemed like they could get semi-current stuff in (had an RT Gunner on the pegs as I recall).  Craptacular pricing, but given their affiliations with KB Toys and K-Mart, that's to be expected I guess.   :-\

I'm a little concerned about this figure and his case-mates as well...  So far I've nabbed the Wookiee and R4 with the wrong inserts, and that's it...  Never saw these again and never saw the Holos or the 501st.  Little disconcerting since the Collection 1's are starting to clog pegs actually.

I would have to agree with you Jesse. I have found him multiple times with his mates, but I fear that as we get closer and closer to December that this wave will fade into the sunset. My reasoning is at somepoint in the very near future, Hasbro will have to begin to cut back or stop ROTS shipping as retailers want to downsize the amount of space allocated to the SW line since we are moving into a non-movie year. We also have a new line that will be starting, combined with the usual January dulls due to inventory and department resets (which will make the first Saga Wave alittle harder to find initially IF the new line and 1st wave follow the historical transition patter). Personally I am done with the final 5 but I know others are still looking and I am beginning to think these just might become harder and harder from this point on also.

Thanks for the link Ook!  Got 2 of the Tac Ops Troopers via Amazon.com!  There has been no sign of them at retail around the DC area.  I almost ordered the R4 but I'd like to leave the rest for the thrill of the chase.

Anyone having more luck finding these at retail?  We still have no sign of them around here, and actually the Collection 1 figures seemed to have dried up now too.  Last I checked, 2 of the 3 I still want/need (Tact Ops x2, Wookiee Heavy Gunner, R4) were in stock at Amazon, but for about $7 each.  I was tempted, but thought I'd wait to see if the Tac Ops Trooper would show up again to save on shipping if I'd order them.  Hopefully these last few won't be a pain to find, it would be nice to be all caught up and have a breather before The Saga Collection starts up.

I scored 2 Tact Ops at Target around 12:30 today. So they are out there, I think it's just timing.

WRT the final five I've found 2 things at retail: Jack and SH*T!  I'm using Zen Master dicipline to force myself to wait until I see the R4-P17 at retail OR someone offers a trade  ;)  I have lots of extra HALO figures.

I have yet to see the last 5 figs.  I do not care for holo figs, I just want some 65s and 68s, and an R4.

Same boat as you, Gatillo. I hear that they're hitting, I just keep missing them. :(
