More EE digging has revealed the pre-order page for 2018 Wave 3 at EE:

The Vintage Collection Action Figures 2018 Wave 3:
2x Elite Praetorian Guard
1x Dr. Aphra
1x Captain Cassian Andor
1x Luke Skywalker Jed I Master
1x Han Solo (Solo)
1x Enfys Nest
1x Imperial Hovertank Driver

We'll see if the case assortment is correct because it doesn't seem to include the SOLO Range Trooper and instead has the Elite Pretorian Guard, which was supposed to be in 2019 Wave 2?  ???

Yakface posted a photo this morning of Wave 3 found at a Texas Walmart and it shows 2 Range troopers and no Elite Guards. All other figures matched the above listing, so barring two different case packings the EE listing is in error.

Someone in my area posted on the NJ forum that they found TVC wave 3.  It's surprising to see these two waves hitting back to back like this, but we've been in such a drought for a while that this is not unwelcome news.

Found wave 3 tonight and can confirm that the case that is getting to stores has 2 Range Troopers and no Elite Guards. Havenít had a chance to open the trooper or Aphra to get any thoughts on it but the cards look cool

I'm hoping EE sells the range troopers individually.

Not yet, but soon...

Like I hinted the other day...  these are now IN-STOCK at EE!

TVC Wave 3 links:
EU Dr. Aphra

SOLO Range Trooper **
RO Cassian Andor **
TFA/TLJ Luke Skywalker**

Just got in my order for two Range Troopers.  Nice to be all caught up again.  :)

** edit:
Range Trooper out of stock about 1:15pm Central Time; Cassian out of stock about 1:30pm CT; Luke out of stock about 2:30pm CT

The Range Trooper is "Temporarily out of stock" you are still able to order them....it just may take a little longer.



**Update** I received a second e-mail from EE saying my order is in stock and processing!  Awesome possum!

Got 5 Rangers and a Cassian.  Worry about Luke and Aphra another day if I care.

I got tired of driving to all of the local Walmart stores, so I just placed orders last night for Han Solo, 3 x Tank Drivers and 3 x Range Troopers.  I tacked on some other stuff to bring up the price and save on shipping.  I'm curious to see how long it's going to take EE to fill the TVC orders.

I'll have to get these online and save myself the hassle, I guess. Target is the only store here that stocks TVC product, and Walmart has cut Star Wars space to 4 pegs and a bottom shelf, thus guaranteeing I will never see these

Just wanted to pop in and offer a big THANKS to all of you who have ordered with the JD EE referral links.  Between the Wave 2 and 3 pre-orders for the troopers alone (range trooper, tank driver), we've earned nearly enough for two months of server fees!

So yes, EE charges $14 per figure, but know that you're basically tossing $1.40 at JD (and saving gas money) with each figure you order!  ;)  Thanks everyone!

Is the single carded Dr. Aphra any different than the SDCC version in the 3-pack?

It worked out well for me to just order this case from EE. Adding one Death Trooper completes me for Waves 2 and 3, and I get the case to store them in. Win win!

Range Troopers arrived today.  Great sculpt and awesome detail.  My only gripe is the rubbery weapons....it's almost like these are cosplay range troopers with the weapons!  :D

Received wave 3 this week, strange to get it before Wave 2. Havenít opened them yet, but they look like nice figures. Iím not an articulation snob by any means, but every time I get a new wave of these it makes me think about dropping a lot of the 5 POA stuff. It is probably those vintage card backs!
