A buddy got this wave and the case breakdown he found is very disturbing...

Rose x3
Guards x2
Stormtrooper x2
Luke x1!!!!

Seriously a messed up breakdown, Rose will be collecting dust until Episode 9 and one of the most desired figures in recent history is relegated to 1 per case. What a mess!

Really? Thanks for the intel, crisis averted and makes me feel a lot better. I guess he didn't see everything as I doubt there would be two different cases available - 8 figures vs 12

Your buddy should consider himself lucky! I have stumbled across this case in two WalMarts and between the two, only been able to score one Praetorian Guard - if I had been able to find a 2nd, I would be "done" with this WalMart TBS 3.75" nonsense.

I managed to pick up 2 of the guards.  They had a handful of everything else, but just the two guards.

This afternoon I picked up one each of Luke and Rose, and 2 each of the Praetorian Guard and Executioner Stormtrooper.

Not a sniff here and right before, literally like 2 days before FF, some stores here got more of the old Han TFA wave.  Ugh.

They had 2 of each at my Walmart. Picked up a guard and a trooper. Had no issues at self checkout.

Spotted a lone Rose last night while buying a car battery. It scanned as "Orange" so at least these appear to be getting into the computer system.

For those that have found these, do your stores have a lot of older stock? I thought about venturing out for a look with all the reports here, but our local stores have a metric ton of the older figures, so I'm not sure there would even be room for them to hit the floor. Really hope I'm able to get a hold of a set.

Lots of older stock. They seem to be just putting them out.

In the two stores where I have found them - a modest amount of stock. In one store that would have expected to find them - they are clogged with the Leia/Han/Phasma wave and Finn - four pegs worth - they aren't getting those in or displaying them anytime soon is my guess...

Picked up everyone but Rose today. No issues at the checkout either, which was nice. The Guard seems to be in really short supply, not that I'm surprised. It's a neat figure.

Store 1 (where I bought mine): Pegs clogged with Hans and Finns and Leias. Not sure where the guy who gave me extras found them

Store 2: Empty pegs outside of single Rose figure

Store 3: Empty pegs outside of single Rose figure
