All my local Walgreens had was Sun Fac and 3PO. I guess all the lame figures had to go somewhere.  ::)

Yeah, I found Poggle and Yoda here. I guess Texas and Iowa get the shaft. :P

Was looking at my several U. clones today, noted there are different packaging variations in them. Seems like 50/50 split between the inner bubble going aroung the head AND antenna and the rest only go around the helmet, as the antenna pokes through a small hole. I know it's useless info, but something to write about I guess :-\. The 'variation' is posted on POTF2.com-a website known for posting gee-whiz type carded variations ::)

Texas definitely is getting short changed this time around.  I guess it's payback for the tons of VOTC stormtroopers that got dropped off in our state, but I've been driving around an awful lot for the last three weeks and so far haven't found any of Scorch, Sora, or the Clone.

Anyone else who has not spotted this wave yet?  I have had the Hoth wave warming the pegs for what seems like a month now.  Even the Snowtroopers and AT-AT Drivers are easy to find.  Im only interested in the two Clones and am beginning to worry.  Will these two figs be shipping in later assortments?

That is the reason I was not worried at all about the U clone.  He will be shipping for a while.  I am not too crazy about Scorch unless he has mad articulation.

I ordered one of those revised cases from Rick @ NFC that way I would be covered with what I want until the summer.
You are never alone when there's a clone.

This may have already been covered somewhere around this thread, but I'm going to skip out on digging through 27 pages to find the answer...

Of the two carded versions of C-3P0, which one is the variation and which one is the regular one?

I've found one of each and need to decide which one to keep.

It is an intentional variant and both versions are currently shipping 1-per-case. 

Most cases assortment listings say 2x C-3PO, but it's really 1x Good 3PO and 1x Bad 3PO (at least it has been in all the cases I've seen put on the pegs), so technically neither version is more rare or more correct.

Its good to see that the clones are shipping in various cases for awhile.  I'd really like to get a couple of the Utapau clones, and so far all I've found from the Geo wave is the bugs, 3PO, and a Yoda.  I'd probably pick up Scorch if I found  him on the pegs, but otherwise I guess I can do without.  But those clones, I definitely hope those show up in greater numbers for everyone.

I've been to my local Target 3 times and all times the pegs have been bare.  :'( :'( Guess I'm used to seeing full pegs all the time, because of ROTS. TRU was a mess, all they had was Baradas and Bibs.

I made a drive up the California's central valley last night made a ton of Walmart stops along the way, and was surprised by what was hanging on the pegs. Many of the Walmarts had lots of Poggles (one store had 8) and a few Sun Facs on the pegs, with little else.

Poggle's an obvious warmer, but I would have thought Sun Fac would be moving faster. I guess no one likes the bugs?
