I was excited to think we were getting the Seventh Sister from Rebels and wondered why we never saw a removable helmet... then I finally read that it's from the game.

When I initially saw the report of another female Inquisitor I thought the same.  Especially when I saw the helmet.  The whole Seventh (Rebels) and Second (SWJ-FO) Sister business is a little confusing if you say or read it too fast.

Yes.

I think the black box looks better in my recycling bin than the First Edition one would have......

Those First Edition white boxes were way harder to find than I expected. Only 2/6 Targets had them and GameStop only got like 1-2 figures per store it seemed, AND wanted $25 for them!

I wonder how many of those they actually made. Definitely inconsistent how they were clustered. Happy I got all 8 but i was sweating it for awhile there.

Interesting, around me the white boxes were all that could be found. No Mandalorian, but the others were easy to find. Did not see the new wave in standard packaging in any of the 6 stores I hit

I had no trouble finding the white boxed figures...  The first Walmart I hit had them all, but there was only one Mandalorian that I let another collector take (plenty of the regular black/red boxed Mandalorians though).  The Target I went to afterwards also had plenty of the white boxed figures and then I found the “Carbonite” Mandalorian there, so got that for the $24.99 price.  A second Target I visited (well after the opening hours) still had plenty of the white box figures, including the Mandalorian, so I picked that up as well.  Between about three stores in my area, I was able to get the complete first edition wave all for the $19.99 price.  What surprised me was the smallish selection between the Targets and Walmarts I visited (one Walmart wasn’t even planning to stock the Star Wars stuff, or so they said) and the fact that a lot of the other collectors I encountered weren’t wholly interested in the Black Series 6” figures or the 3.75” TVC ones. I was certainly one of the few people buying more than a couple of the figures at a given time.

I didn't realize there were two repacks in this wave.  I grabbed them all, but after getting them home I was a little bummed to see the First Order Stormtrooper was a reissue and the Jawa (Offworld) was just a slightly different color from the previous Jawa.  For some reason I thought there were fairly significant differences in these figures from what we had received previously.

Am I crazy (yes I'm too lazy to get up and check), but doesn't the original Jawa have plastic robes and this one cloth?

They updated the FO Stormie's elbows so that he can better hold his blaster with 2 hands. I saw a great comparison pic somewhere

No, both are cloth.
