Does anyone know if the paint apps for Jyn are the same as the original release?

I think they are, but probably with slight differences unintentionally done simply because it's a new production run.  I'm buying her for the card plain and simple.  Same on Cassian.

I'm gonna hope I find lotsa Hoth Rebels and that this line in general isn't a pain to get.  It's already leaking out at some stores.

I see Leia and Finn and Poe still. I forgot about Poe. I suppose I'm blind to him after two years. Never see any TLJ figures. Those vanished, but we only got one case that I'm aware of.

I could use an extra Poe....I don't like the 5POA one that came with the TRU exclusive X-wing.

Ugh... This is the wave that's going to get me collecting the sequel trilogy.

Seems like there's a relatively small amount of good sequel figures though, right? Aren't they mainly all 5poa?

For SA Sequel Trilogy Figures, there's just 8 from TFA (Kylo, FO Stormtrooper, Rey, Finn, Poe, Starkiller Han, Dqar Leia, Phasma) and 4 from TLJ (Jedi Master Luke, Praetorian Guard, Rose, Executiontrooper).

My buddy has been finding these on the shelves at Targets all over the place, but couldn't buy 'em either.

Only one I've seen is the First Odor Stormtrooper and thought "Wow, I got that at Wal-Mart for $6 over a year ago and it came with collector friendly resealable packaging!" What's with this glued bubble card stuff?  ;)

Found this wave at both of the Targets I visited this morning, $12.99 each. I picked up Snoke, the Hoth trooper, and Rey. Man I love these cardbacks. The price stings, and I don't have a problem with the 5 POA stuff, but I sort of wish this was just the regular line.

I just ordered Snoke from Amazon.  $15.99 with Prime shipping. But they wanted $18 for the Hoth Rebel. I passed at that price.

Remind me.  Is this Snoke different (other than the card) than what they had in the TLJ line?

This is the vintage collection version (SA), not 5 POA, so itís new.

Hoth Rebel is a repack of the beardless version that I believe was canceled as a single figure and then sold in that Target Tauntaun set way back in 2011

That said, I saw a few of these at Gamestop for $14.99. I'll hold out for Target and Walmart to get them, especially since I only need Snoke.

A few of the figures also had the bubbles already falling off the card, so heads up for that. Not sure if that's more of the cheap Hasbro materials we got from 2013-14 or just bad handling in transit to the store

Yeah, all of the ones I saw today did have a piece of tape holding the bubble on, and I don't think that was done at the store, they shipped like that.

Seen them all in store now, except for the Hoth trooper. Lots of sequel trilogy Stormtroopers out there.
