Thank you, Patrick, that will help me know which waves I "almost" found when I see one figure left on the pegs!

One of the WM stores nearby has received at least 6 cases of the first wave and most are still warming the pegs after 2 weeks. The other store nearby only one box. Distribution is still an ongoing nightmare.

It's more than obvious that no one wants these. They are repacks and they are way to expensive. Figures with barely no accessories going for 30$ is way too much for many people. Star Wars is pretty much dead at retail and seeing all the Black Series figures always warming the pegs, much more than any TVC wave has done so far, is catastrophic. Despite all the bulls**t Hasbro is trying to pull on us, making us believe the 6'' line is successful and trying to force us to consider this as the "collectors" avenue, Black Series has been jamming the pegs everywhere I see them. They are the retail stores' nightmare, much worse than TPM TVC wave back in 2012. Even going at half the price, they still jam the pegs. Tehy are big, likeliness is deficient, lack the accessories... what's to love about these? Anyway... I feel SW is pretty much dead and seeing those BS clogging the pegs is not helping at all...

I think that's a pretty isolated situation - the vintage carded 6" figures are flying here in Ontario, I saw my first ones just today after about 20 store visits. I have no doubt they'll be gone within 48hrs.

They are repacks, but the allure of the over-sized cards is great. I am purchasing some (more than I should be) with a view towards trying to sell my previously owned versions to recoup some of the money. We'll see how that goes.  :mad0218:

One Walmart had like 4 or 5 cases, but no Luke at all.  He seems to be the hot one, probably cause he's the only one with anything new.  I usually see Yoda and Leia and even the At-At Driver hanging around.

I have both in front of me & I'm not sure I'd call the new Luke head "an improvement" per se. It's different & I want to keep the vintage carded version so it's an easy choice that way.... but based on face alone I don't see the big deal.
