So is "Island Journey Rey" the same figure as "TFA Resistance outfit Rey"? I can't remember... ???

Pretty much.  It's the same outfit.

Yes, it was found at a TRU in Houston earlier this week!

Thanks for the info, Nick!

Already found?  Wow.  I would've thought that most retailers would still be in their post-holiday inventories.

More info on the Rey in this wave.  An Amazon listing has some packaged images that confirm the "Island Journey" designation on this new version.

Excellent, thanks! Looking forward to getting the Rey and then being done until whenever the RFT arrives.

Lots of good stuff, it is amazing how much that scanning technology improves the look of the human characters. I'm really happy to see the Leia, and definitely the Gamorrean. That character, along with Endor Han and Jedi Luke, were the first figures I bought with my own money in the vintage days, so they always have a special place.

Oooo! The Gamorrean Guard is a nice surprise. Glad it's a Target exclusive.

Very unhappy Zuckuss is an exclusive, and especially to TRU. But I'm kind of stepping out of 6 inch. With TVC coming back, and just cutbacks in general. there's a lot here I'll have to skip. Pretty sure I need the Gammy though.

Agreed with you, Darby, on the TRU exclusive.  Gree was ill managed.  I was able to get him ship to store and it was the only time I saw him.  And with their bankruptcy woes and closing stores, that makes it more worrisome.

I know the closest one for you is about 40some minutes away now.  Holler if you need help.
