In the past couple of weeks I mamanged to get both waves 4 and 5 down in Dallas.  Looks like the CZ-4 is going to be the hardest to find.  He is not in all wave 4 cases.  Pics to follow soon.  BTW Hermie is Huge!

Man, they're going great guns right now. By wave 6, what was the highest "figure number"? There are supposed to be 60 basics this year, and I'm wondering how many we're likely going to miss up here in Canada.

I agree with JJ. We are doing so, so right now as far as keeping up with our US friends, but, when's the tap gonna dry up. It's gettin' on mid Oct and we still have to see waves 5,6,7,8!!! I don't even pretend to believe we'll see 7 and 8. Not a big deal for me so much as I'm REALLY particular which repacks/paints I get. SO, yeah, I forsee us gettin' stopped at 6 before Xmas.

Just got back from NY state yesterday and hit pay dirt! The american Wal-Mart I usually frequent had a bunch of TOC waves 5 and 6.  Here's what I scored:

Reporting in from Ireland.  Today I picked up an ARC 170 Elite Squad Battle Pack at "Forbidden Planet" in Dublin.  Great looking set!  I haven't seen anything else yet that is new or different.  Loads of McChewie's on the pegs in every store I've been in.

It wasn't particularly cheap - 29 euro I think, but this includes all taxes.

 :confused0024: Talk about clearing out shelves...collectors and/or scalpers!

I was in Southern California last week and managed to hit about 8-10 Wal*Marts between San Diego and Anaheim.

I know they HAD Wave 6 as I did manage to find a General McQuarrie (yay!) stashed away by someone. Other then that it was the usual pegwarmers...did hope to find at least a couple of the Wave 5 guys as well as the McQuarrie figs.

At LEGOLand managed to pick up a Luke Skywalker maquette. Picked up the TRU Cinema Scenes (Hoth and Naboo). Also picked up the large Darth Vader/Death Star Transformer (and it's a beauty!).

Disneyland was wiped clean of the Darth Goofy and Emperor Sidious along with those 5 SW Potato Heads.

yeah, it's way worse in the states. There are scalpers who are at TRU every morning when it first opens...insane.

 :cool0037:

My Zellers has Boba Fett, Vader, Ig-88 and 501st Irooper all grey... And new comic packs (minus) the Mara Jade and Luke.. Still, I hate Luke and that Jade thing...

Can't wait for Republic Commando comic pack... Still have the original comic  :party0053:


Does Tru have saga legends 3-4? I heard they had loads of 'em  :speechless-smiley-004:
