With the lack of other SW product, I was beginning to think I missed this wave entirely.

This wave is definatley lagging behind...   ::)

I've been blanking on these as well, and most stores have reduced the # of pegs, so there isn't much room for new stock  :-\

I found the target GH sets for 30% off here in Minnesota, another forum member in our group found them for 50%, so keep your eyes peeled if you have been waiting. I grabbed the speederbike set early, but was glad to get the Mustafar set a little cheaper with all the repacks.

I've seen the new wave near Albany, NY.  I thought we were going to get a Galactic Marine Galactic Hero.  Is that not correct?  I knew about Bacara, but could have sworn I've seen something online about the Marine too.  Maybe that's just wishful thinking.  Anyone else remember that?  Or is it just a great idea?

Maybe you're thinking of next year's Target exclusive "Order 66" Cinema Scene - featuring all the Jedi, Clone Commanders, and Clone pilots we're being sold right now, plus a couple repainted snow troopers and phase-2 clones.  That, or something equally terrible, is so inevitable you must have thought it was official.   ;)

Ah, but are they going to be in normal colors, or the Special BMF squadron colors, that is the real question. ::)

After disappearing for a bit, the Mustafar GH set (as well as the Aayla starfighter) have reappeared on the floor of our Target on the clearance endcap.  They are both around $13ish right now I believe.  I had one of the GH sets in our cart, but the Mrs. talked me out of it for now.  I'm hoping it will drop a bit more before they sell out, but I doubt it.  Are the upcoming Dewback and Vader's TIE sets coming after the 7/26 date (I think I might have asked that before :P)?  I'm guessing probably yes.

I'm pretty sure they're planned for 7/26.  It's going to be a VERY expensive month, just for GH alone!

Um, anybody still have the GH Falcon in stores still?  I've given up on finding it here and would be willing to trade my left nut for one.  ;)

Just to clarify, I think for the non-exclusve box sets only the Vader's TIE and Obi-Starfighter sets will be out on 7/26.  Hasbro thought the other 2 sets (Dewback, Arena) might end up as a second wave of the non-exclusive box sets... but they could show up on 7/26 if they are able to get them ready in time.

I think they're still available at wm.com.

Do you need someone to order one for you?

Thanks for the clarification Jeff.  I've been confused about Hasbro's plans on those non-exclusives for a while.

Thanks for the heads up Travis, it looks like I've already got one in the works.  :)
