I also have yet to see the Scarif Trooper or Cassian. Not too worried since everything HTF last year has come around again, but then you never know. I have no interest in any of this next group. Good for some folks, but nothing compelling for me.

Still haven't  seen Scarifs as well.  I hope they are repacked with later waves.  I like the offerings in this one, though I think Ponda and maybe even Fett will peg warm.  It's nice that they include some troop builders, but I recall the Hoth Rebel Soldier from that Ponda wave as being much harder to come by, and still has that troop builder appeal.  Also not as happy to see a mail-in figure get a regular release, but good for anyone who missed i=him the first time around.  I'll give this wave a B-.  I like it, but they could have done more.

Decent wave, though I have no need for any of them. I don't have the Proto Fett, but might grab it this time. Hopefully, the case assortment favors the Rogue One figures that I haven't seen yet. I've only seen two Jyns and no one else. Of course, the Phasma wave is just starting to saturate here, so there's that.

I have extras of the mailaway if you want it on the TVC card, and to avoid the annoyance of going to WalMart.

The dream team, truly.

I'll be glad to get Protonda Baba Fett in Sand Raider armor.

If they'd Imperial'd up the Fett for an Imperial Mando I'd have liked that actually

Lucasfilm won't even let them make a grey "Death Squad Commander". Might think greedy Disney would loosen the reigns a bit...but no...unless it's a figure with bulky removable armor that never appeared on screen.

Still debating if I want to get anything from this wave. I mailed away for like 5 Proto Fetts and have plenty of the Sandtroopers and Tusken Raiders. Might grab a Ponda since I still have the TVC version carded and boxed away somewhere.

I caved and ordered a Scarif Trooper for $30 on Amazon.  I feel dumb.

I feel your pain, Rob.  I still don't have a single one.  I've cleared out my local store twice and had to call the manager to get them to zero out the inventory.  After weeks of nothing on the pegs, they finally got a new case in....of the Rey/Phasma wave.  Makes me a little sick just thinking about it.  Your $30 is probably worth the stress relief.   :P

Yeah, I figured it's only about $16 more than it would have cost, and if I ever do happen to see more I'd like to buy up to 6 of them, but at least with the one it's not on my list anymore. 

I hope future waves won't be so... difficult.

Don't.  I found the Scarif Trooper online.  ONCE.  At 5:30 in the morning.  After checking Walmart.com like a stalker for weeks.  Not a proud moment for me, let me tell you.  The only saving grace is that I HAD to be awake and at work at that time.

And I never saw that figure or Cassian Andor in a store.  I may have been able to find Jyn and the Deathtrooper in stores, but someone seriously dropped the ball on getting this wave out to stores.
