Found them today and the ratio sucks.  I'm shopping for three people on this so who gets the Barada? ::)  They all do look quite nice but I'm trying to optimize my holograms so I actually left a few figures behind rather than by them with, yep, the rebel fleet trooper :-X 

The Fett's were all packed with the same hologram something that would have been great had it not been Sidious in each. 

Card's are nice too, sure to be easier to manage for MOMC folks than those accursed ROTS cards were.

I got to see this wave up close and personal yesterday at a shop here in LA. I know for a fact that they were not purchased at retail, so don't get excited. I thought the Han and Leia looked awesome. Bib was just okay and can't say I'm a fan of the Fett kit bash.

I should have Han, Leia and Bib sometime next week via a trade.  Will customize a Bib for sure, and probably the Han.  I'm sure they will be very easy to find here in stores soon anyway.  Might as well get and early jump on customizing the new stuff.   :)

Can an opener verify if the back of the carbonite block is "hollow?"

The back is kind of hollow - but I don't think Han really fits in it.  Found these today, only had a chance to open Han - had to drive like a mad man to get back to work.  I'll try and take a few extra reference pics tomorrow.

A friend of mine said these hit local Wally Worlds today, but traffic is horrible out. I'm hoping these are still here next week, unless I can get out tomorrow, which is unlikely.

Hi, I have spotted the Carkoon wave at Toys r Us and Zellers.
I have also spotted the tie interceptor and A-wing Lego sets at Zellers across the city. ;D

So I guess I'm the only one army-building with Barada? Nice.  8)

I have yet to see Barada.
I hope I can find a couple of Bobas.
The best I have seen was a Boba holo figure.

This hit Utah today/tonight at Walmarts. At one Walmart they were missing the Chewies then the other had them. Bought the ones I wanted. Now bring on the next two waves! Will say that the $5.88 price point WILL definetly make me very selective on the Saga line.

I think I will just try to get at least one of each holo(no matter what figure it's packed with) I figure a line this huge and as often as I'm openng cases it won't take long.

My notable holos with tonites' purchases(got all 6 fresh out of case) were

Maul, Dooku, Boba    Solo, Yoda, Kenobi
