Seen very little of interest in this line for a while.  I really hope I get a few more cracks at Praetorian Guards (especially now having seen the movie), and an extra Luke for customizing.

Even Rose from that wave is gone here now, not that much of that wave ever hit here.

The others including the fabled repacks of greatness are pegwarming, Proto Boba aside.

No Rogue One figure sightings in quite some time but the odd Jyn here and there.  :-\

I'm really looking forward to the new TVC.  Plenty of more options to finding great figures!

Wanted to share my East coast exploits over winter break.

I landed in Charlotte, NC and had to drive to Marion to pick up my kids. Had lots of time to kill, so hit every WM along the way, I think 7 in total along the 85, 321 and 40. NC was the only state I had any luck with this wave. I was just looking for the Praetorian Guard. I found one in Hickory. Also managed to snag a pair of Lukes and a Execution trooper for friends and there was at least one Rose at nearly every WM I stopped at.

After picking up my girls and spending some time in Marion, we began our drive to PA. After Hickory, we stopped at WM's along the way for potty breaks and hopped onto the 77 North at Statesville. Stopped in Harrisonburg, VA for a few hours of sleep and then continued on to PA via the 81, again hitting WM's along the way for breaks (my GF has a small bladder, Lol!) Spent my time in PA, drove my kids to Baltimore to catch a flight home and then drove to Philly to head back to LA. Must have hit 20 WM's since leaving Statesville, NC and was lucky to see one Rose at some of the stores. That was it.

The Walmart near me has a few Roses, and a bunch of Cassians and Jynns...with a few Leias thrown in.

Cassia sells out here cuz that wave never hit in any quantity.

Are these still hitting anywhere at this point? They never really showed up at our local store, although a friend was able to snag 3 of the 4 for me at a store across town. Since then (October I think), I haven't seen any. Still want to get at least one Praetorian Guard (and hopefully some extras down the road), but wasn't sure if I wanted to bite the eBay bullet quite yet. It would seem to be good fodder for a Vintage Collection re-release, but who knows how that is going to go.

I'd wait.  You might find them in December.

Found a lone Rose at a local WM marked down to $4, so I went ahead and picked it up. I wonder if this price will clear the pegs. Probably not.  :-\

People are finding all the later waves but your mileage will vary.  The $4 price hasnít hit here yet.

Got my Praetorian Guards from EE. Made at least one of the helmet variants from the Rey/P-Guard 2 pack.
