Maybe a Biggs with Luke, a Leia Endor with Wicket, an Anakin with Qui-Gon and Destroyer Droid with the Geonosian Warrior?

Great list Jim, and thanks for typing that up for everyone too.  It is hard to believe there are over 60 figures at this point, but its nice to see.  Aside from picking up a number of the ROTS sets, I've mainly stuck to OT-based sets for this line...and hope to continue in that way.  They sure seem to be selling well.  Back around the ROTS figure release last April, they had such a pile of these at WM I didn't think they would ever get rid of them.  Now they are all gone (although our WM doesn't seem to carry these anymore for some reason).  Target is always sold out, and TRU moves them well too.  I know I can't wait for these upcoming waves, and hopefully the other rumored stuff will pan out too.  I'd like to see this line expand a little further yet, and although I know we won't see it, a couple more vehicles (movie accurate) would be kind of nice.

I finally found the Maul 2-pack.  I passed the first time, not realizing that Obi-Wan had Qui-Gon's saber versus his own when this was originally released.  Seems like this wave not really showing up too often. 

The Tie Fighter Pilot and Greedo look to be future favorites of mine.  Cant wait.

Haven't seen any of the new ones and doubt I will ever. :'(

We finally got more Galactic Heroes in last night but it was the Darth Maul wave.  Amazing that it was nearly a month before we got more but all the Targets out here and in TN were blown on these too.  Of all the SW items we carry, that is the one item we get more of than any other. 

As for the new sets, I'm stoked, even though I buy these for my nephew.  I hope they do a case breakdown like this:

Stormtrooper Han and Luke x2
TIE Pilot/Wedge x2
Han/Greedo x2
Sandtrooper/Old Ben x2
Darth Maul/Obi-Wan x1
Shock Trooper/Palpatine x1
green Clone/red Battle Droid x1
Stormtrooper 2pak x1

I saw a few of the prequel sets on the pegs at Target this weekend, so I decided top ick up the Emperor/Shocktrooper set.  I'm always a fan of the shocktrooper, and I like this repaint of Palps as well.  Other than that, the pegs have been pretty bare for these lately.

I ran into the Maul wave this last weekend as well. Other than that it is almost all Luke/speeder bike, Han/Luke hoth, and Chewbacca/clone on the pegs.

Why rehash the emperor with a shock trooper? Why not splurge a bit and release, oh i dunno, a RED GUARD?! Yeah it's a new sculpt but still, aside from the storm/clone troopers, the ERG is easily one of the most recognized trooper types out there!

Is anyone still seeing the 2nd wave in store?  I missed the Clone Trooper & Battle Droid and the Emperor & Shock Trooper.

I also missed Yoda & the BARC Trooper, but I'm pretty sure it's gone from retail on the orange (ROTS) style card.  Apparently it was rereleased on the black and silver (2006) style card, but the other 3 I have from that wave are on the orange card so I'm hoping to be consistent.  OCD indeed.
