I found some images of Jon and Dan with the exclusive stickers and compared them t what I had... I couldn't find a difference (besides the sticker).  Maybe someone else can point out something?

My Jon Snow has Longclaw in the original release... so I don't know.  Maybe it has better paint apps?

The sword in this Jon Snow looks significantly different.  There are inscriptions on the blade of the exclusive version.

Mine looks like it has inscriptions on the blade... or at least, decorative.  hmm, now I'm curious.

I'm thinking now that there may be no difference between these Jon Snow figures after all.  I haven't opened my own Jon Snow yet.  What I'm wondering about the Longclaw sword is this:  are the inscriptions only on one side of the blade, and a fuller (groove) on the other side?  Because until now I had only seen the groove of the sword in the packaging for Jon Snow.

I haven't opened mine either.  I've been too busy buying (not that I'm getting new things everyday) but haven't had time to open stuff.  Perhaps I should open mine.

Hmmm.  Then it seems that maybe those Summer Convention exclusive stickers on the packages of the figures at Target are just a little bit misleading.

I also just took a look at my wave 1 Dany.  I didn't notice any differences between the figure I saw at Target yesterday which had the sticker and the one I have at home that I bought elsewhere.

Well, it looks like Series 2 should be our today.  I wonder if they'll be easy to find or not. Most places have Series 1 out still.  Maybe a local TRU.  They never restocked so hopefully they'll get these.

So, the helmet for the exclusive Tyrion does not fit on the regular release's head.  Kind of bummed about that.  Of course, Tyrion is only in the armor and scarred for a brief period.

I found some of wave 2 today at a B&N. I saw the whole wave except for Arya and Robb Stark. Khal Drogo and Brienne both looked pretty cool, but I left those. Blue dress Dany was alright, too. But I decided to get the King slayer. Jaime Lannister translates pretty well as an action figure, and especially in the Kings Guard armor. I'll pick up the rest of the wave a little bit at a time.

I picked up all 6 of Wave 2 at B&N today as well...any word on a Wave 3?  We need Sansa, Joff, King Robert, Cersei, Sam, Bran and some Direwolves!

I picked up the Starks and Jaime the other day.  I'll wait on the others for now.

I am really looking forward to the next ThreeZero release. Hope they nail the Jon Snow sculpt.

any word on a Wave 3? 

Actually, I heard rumor that Tywin Lannister is in the mix for wave 3... hopefully with Cersei.

As for wave 2, I'm wondering what exclusives will pop up with these figures.  I can only think of Dany with the dragons... or Dany with the eggs (though it probably be wave 1 Dany then).

To add to Scott's list, I think getting some of the council would be nice: Varys, Littlefinger, and Pycelle

I get the sense that Funko is still testing the waters with this line.  The pacing seems a little bit on the deliberate side with the releases.  My gut feeling is that they'll try to time the release of Wave 3 with the beginning of the new season on HBO.

As for my own wishlist?

-Ser Davos Seaworth
-Tywin Lannister
-Ser Jorah Mormont
-Sansa Stark
-Robert Baratheon
-The Mountain
