The Hasbro Star Wars team made a point of discussing this numbering change, and the Darth Revan situation to an almost exhaustive degree.

Yeah, the Yavin Leia in the wave 10 mixed case is definitely labelled VC164.  Shipping now from select etailers and found at TRU in Canada.

The Feb 2020 date is when the single-figure cases of Leia are expected.  I guess we will have to wait and see if there is a running change where those have the VC150 instead of VC164.

I sent an email to Hasbro PR asking for clarification but haven't heard anything back from them yet.

My wave 10 case is on the way from EE as well as my 3 Shadow troopers from Amazon.  :)

Received  the Jawa and my Sith Troopers today.

The Jawa is a straight repack, but a welcome addition to my Jawa/Tusken shelf.

The Sith Trooper is amazing!  Nice detail, great articulation and the weapons are cool.  The large gun is a bit awkward though.

Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

No paint differences?  I think Yak Face referred to it as a slight repaint the other day on Instagram.

My Shadow troopers arrived SHOVED the wrong way into the box. Absolutely unacceptable. Seems like I'm not the only one, reading many people receiving these wave 10 figure packed without any care whatsoever.

My Jawa and Sith Trooper came in a nice box with bubble wrap. Very happy.

Itís possible, Rob.  I must admit I didnít compare them too closely, because they arrived the day before we left for vacation.

I found the 150 Leia at Target.

Found this wave today at Target, first time seeing a new wave there (outside of Force Friday) since TVC Wave 1 last year. I forgot to look at the number on Leia when I left her behind. I did get the two troopers and there is a couple of interesting points on their weapons...

For the Sith Trooper, the cannon he comes with is useless. The legs donít unfold and he has no way to really hold it. The blaster he comes with is missing the stock shown on the card art and again he can barely hold it. I swapped the blaster with the one from the Jet Trooper and though again he can barely hold it, it does look a lot better with the stock.

For the Shadow Trooper, he comes with a long rifle that I swear is the same one from the POTF2 4-LOM! I donít have that rifle readily available but damn does it look close. Would be really funny if they used a 22 year old accessory in the TVC line.

Found this wave at Target today as well. The Leia I picked up was number 164. Nice to finally get a Jawa on a vintage card back. The Sith Trooper is neat too. Although I was happy to find the new figures, it was kind of strange to think that this is basically it for 3 3/4Ē figures from the new movie for the year. Weíve got some TVC exclusives, like Yavin Luke, the geared up Sith Trooper, and the Cave set, but as far as new movie stuff thatís kind of it for this scale for now.  Iíll grab some Black Series figures here and there, but it would be nice to see another wave(s) with the new looks of Poe, Finn, Kylo, as well as Jannah, the other Knights of Ren, etc. After seeing that new trailer, there are so many more characters, beasts, and vehicles Iíd like to see.

I found a fresh case of Snoke, Hoth rebel and scavenger Rey on the pegs at my local Target. Full price!

Yes, same thing happened at my local Target last week after two cases of the TROS wave sold through (except for one Pilot Luke with his mouth printed on his right cheek.)

 The funny thing is, everyone sold but Snoke, Jyn, and a FO Stormtrooper. Now there are 6 Snokes and 8 Jyns at that store. I have strong hopes that the Stormie will sell soon!

All that is here is a Rey from the new wave, wave 1 Jyn and Rey.  Thatís it.  Wish I could find all the cool wave 2 ROS stuff but nope.  Iíd buy some black stormtroopers.  Hell I would buy Leia and the Jawa too.  Itís back to a drought locally though.  TBS is largely gone too.

Walmart has some TVC from TFF but not much good.  Mostly Lando Luke and Poe.  We never got a sniff of Jabbaís palaces either by all local accounts and that blows.  I really wanted a second one for just adding onto my one I got way back.

Why bother with stores these days?  Theyíve all been available online for most of this time.
