I really loved Solo and the characters so I'm glad to see Hasbro step up to get them ALL made at least. 

Same.  TVC would be GREAT, but at least we're getting the main crew.  Dryden is probably gonna take a while since he was recast later in the game and that probably delayed his figure some.

Some great looking figures there. Glad they’re releasing them, but wonder if they’ll end up EE exclusives.

*looks at Robot Kingdom Wave 3 case pack listing*

SW E5 SWU PRINCESS LEIA HOTH
SW E5 SWU DARTH VADER
SW SWU E8 KYLO REN
SW E8 SWU REY JEDI TRAINING
SW E6 SWU LUKE SKYWALKER
SW SWU E8 STORMTROOPER

Jayson's got pics of the Vader and Luke from Wave 3.  Luke is a repack (as was previously rumored).  Vader looks to be an all-new ANH Darth Vader sculpt designed to match up in battle with the 5POA TLJ Ben Kenobi figure they did.  I have zero need for any more Darth Vaders at this point, but it looks really nice and I might actually pick it up.  :-[

I'm waiting on confirmation on that Stormtrooper now.  It's listed as an Ep8 stormie, but Rocket Kingdom and others are showing a loose pic of the "Squad Leader Officer" Stormie in orange (last seen in the Kohl's TLJ 4-pack).  Might actually buy if it's that one as I don't have that repaint yet...

I'd also love if the Trooper is the officer.

According to Walmart.com it shows images of a First Order Stormtrooper Officer with what I believe is Red Pauldron is coming in Wave 3 of the Force Link 2.0 or Solo A Star Wars Story Collection. It has both a carded and loose image.

It looks like Wave 3 will consist of the following:

Darth Vader (Death Star Duel) (ANH)
Kylo Ren (Masked or Master of the Knights of Ren) (TLJ) (Repack from Wave 2)
Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight Outfit) (ROTJ)
Princess Leia (Hoth Outfit) (TESB) (Repack from Wave 2)
Rey (Jedi Training) (TLJ)
Stormtrooper Officer (First Order) (Red Pauldron) (TLJ)

Glad to see it confirmed as the Stormie Squad Officer from the Kohl's pack.  Glad I never bought that set just for him.

Funny - when this wave was first rumored, I wanted none of it.  Now, seeing it's not just all repacks, I'll probably pick up that new Vader and Stormtrooper Officer repaint. *shrug* Got me again, Hasbro.  :-[

That's cool about the Stormtrooper.  When I first saw the images, I wasn't sure if it was a reissue of the Stormtrooper Officer from the TFA line.  But I guess the pauldron is the distinguishing feature here.  I passed on the Kohl's set, too.  I just couldn't go there at that price for 3 reissues and 1 new figure.

With Vader?  I'm really on the fence.  If they include some cool sound clips in the Force Link 2.0 tech I may bite.  But that ROGUE ONE sculpt seemed like such a step backwards in terms of sculpting and articulation.

I saw the new wave at Walmart yesterday over lunch. Nothing I was interested in though, and they didn't have the new 2-packs.

I got the stormie for myself and immediately swapped his gear to an SA Trooper and he looks amazing.

The others?  Meh.

Yuck.  I'd forgotten what a crappy assortment this is with no new figures from Solo, or new characters at all.  At least its mostly decent core characters. 

Hopefully these don't clog the pegs for too long so we can move on to Wave 4.

Some smaller on-line shops are soliciting a different Wave 3 case that has Solo figures, including the mysterious "Hades Joker 1" that no one has been able to decode yet.

I'm not sure if it's a Wave 3 revision case or if this is the Wave 4 case mis-labeled as Wave 3?

2x SW E5 SWU DARTH VADER
1x SW E8 REY
1x SW S2 SWU HADES JOKER 1
2x SW S2 IMPERIAL PATROL TROOPER
2x SW S2 TOBIAS BECKETT
2x SW S2 QUAY TOLSITE
2x SW S2 HAN MUDTROOPER
