This wave is apparently hitting JC Penney's stores, of all places. Multiple Revan/Sabine finds on Reddit. Might not be a bad idea to check your local stores.

Found, and snagged, a Luke today... because I wanted to see how the cloak looks on the 3.75 inch Black Series Luke. :-[

So according to the site, LEGO severely underestimated the demand for an $800 set, so the set is "Temporarily Out of Stock" and there will NOT be a widespread release on October 1. LEGO says "everyone will have a chance" to buy it, however.

Set is available for VIP Members! Currently backordered, and "will ship in 30 days."

Scalpers are already going crazy over it. ::)

Yeah, something just feels "right" about Star Wars movies and Christmas. Plus, this gets E9 out of that ridiculously stacked "3 weeks after Avengers 4, 3 weeks before Toy Story 4" release schedule

Jesse, I too have been thinking about scalpers. The original guy who let me have his extras only had Luke, Stormie and EPG in his hands, I found the Roses later. And the fact that Rose is the only other figure I've seen on the pegs at multiple stores is fishy too. The first new toys to hit WM in a while and a non-repack is sitting? ::)

For those that have found these, do your stores have a lot of older stock? I thought about venturing out for a look with all the reports here, but our local stores have a metric ton of the older figures, so I'm not sure there would even be room for them to hit the floor. Really hope I'm able to get a hold of a set.

Store 1 (where I bought mine): Pegs clogged with Hans and Finns and Leias. Not sure where the guy who gave me extras found them

Store 2: Empty pegs outside of single Rose figure

Store 3: Empty pegs outside of single Rose figure

Spotted a lone Rose last night while buying a car battery. It scanned as "Orange" so at least these appear to be getting into the computer system.

I was in Los Angeles over Labor Day weekend and had the opportunity to see the man himself, John Williams, conduct the LA Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl! The show was AWESOME!

First hour was David Newman conducting. They performed the main theme from Robin Hood (1938), Dracula (1979) and performed live music to the Judy Garland number from A Star Is Born, along with some other minor music.

Then after intermission, John Williams comes out. It was an awesome scene, with every kid in the crowd igniting a toy lightsaber! He started with a minor chase song from Indiana Jones, followed by some minor themes from Close Encounters of the Third Kind. He then introduced the Harry Potter themes, which were HP and the Chamber of Secrets, Aunt Marge's Waltz, and the main HP theme.

Then, he brought out Kobe Bryant to narrate an animated short film about his basketball career, which Williams conducted music for!

Then came Star Wars! He teased playing some TLJ music and then said "I'll wait until next year." Ha! They performed the Scherzo for the X-Wings from TFA, Rey's Theme, then the Star Wars main theme with ANH intro and ANH end credits.

After that I was geeked and didn't really pay attention to the next song, and then they performed the Imperial March!

Encore was the Superman theme, after which Williams told the kids in the crowd it was past his bedtime.

An awesome show in a beautiful venue!

Damn, I was looking forward to the extended torture scene where a minor female character is grabbed by a Dianoga and nearly drowned before the Dianoga is eaten by a Nexu, which eats the female until both are eaten by a Rancor

Got this wave just now! I only saw them because another guy had them and was scanning them at the price checker. I asked if there were any more and he gave me his extras saying he didn't want to horde, so I got very lucky there. Took them to the self checkout and played dumb with the clerk when they didn't scan. I remained firm in that I wanted to buy them and eventually the clerk had to type in the individual UPC code.

I think I'm more relieved to just be done with this awful line (outside of the Shoretrooper)

These are the same four droids Bandai is releasing in special packs in their SH Figuarts line, so I assume they'll play prominent roles in the movie. Just need to find a way to get my hands on this set!

Gotta say that I LOVE the headsculpts in this line. Hasbro's sculptors knocked them out of the park. I've already bought Hux and Poe for headswap/custom potential alone.

I worked a 14 hour day on Thursday and flew out to LA on Friday so I didn't have a lot of time to hit stores. I hit my local Target and TRU on Friday morning, Target had absolutely nothing new but TRU had some 4 inch stuff. Ended up grabbing Chewie (for the Porg) and Hux. Tonight when I got home from the airport I stopped by a local WM and snagged a Poe to headswap with the Black Series 4 inch figure.

I've still yet to see a single new 6 inch figure.
