    Don't we have Bandai? I wish Hasbro just gave it up completely and I only had to buy SHFs.

    Did Hera or Ashoka ever even come out? I have no idea how many waves were supposed to hit after those guys, but what I showed in my Walmart pics is pretty much every store outside of the 16 Rey's TRU got in a few months ago.

    Different toys though. I don't have a problem with the toys, just the utterly non-existent availability. I'm already cringing at what a fight I'm looking at for Black Widow and her motorcycle next year. I was ready to give GTS Distribution a credit card but their cupboards are bare so I don't have faith in that panning out. The embargo is going to make even BBTS a nightmare, even if I'm willing to take a case of her and 3 Ghost Riders.

    Ahsoka yes, Hera no.

    I get what you mean about waves though. Itsalltrue.net notes something like 20 waves and dozens of exclusives but I think that's a lie. There were 3 waves back in 2013/2014, then nothing until TFA wave 1, then nothing until R1 wave 1, then some Vader box sets, and now you're caught up.

    Never saw Revan or Sabine or even Ahsoka. Hell I don't think wave 2 of r1 ever even made it to this area because all the morons we're constantly restocking wave 1. So I'm stuck with using online purchases for the most part. I've only seen two places even stock the 40th wave besides the Vader which is still at $30 at one and full price everywhere else I checked. I'm really sick of coming up empty handed. Especially when it comes to getting a favorite character like Revan. I'm going to try some time this week to venture a bit further out and see what I can find for both bs and Marvel Legends.

    Nobody's interested at a cent over the Walmart clearance price.

    I thought that was a reasonable price but I've not looked for a while. I bought the whole wave so no issues finding revan but I was seeing him (well, her as I played the games!) For about $35 alone. If I saw revan at clearance I'd be sure to pick up one for a friend, he's not a collector but he got me into KOTOR.

    Thanks Kane, looks like I'll have to hunt for Chewie...from the pix he looks taller than the 40th anniversary Vader.

    I'm off to collect the SH Figuarts droids! Tbh if Hasbro didn't drop the ball on R2's size, I won't be picking them up.

    On a side-note, in my ideal SW collection, I must have the best versions of ANH Luke, Han, Leia (Hoth version) and the droids.

    The rest of the characters such as Chewie and Lando I can live with the Hasbro versions.

    I feel your pain...the same thing has happened to me but with different figures. In the end, I just give up on retail and get my items via import shops.

    I gave Thrawn Krennic's cape. Doesn't fit perfectly on his shoulders but doesn't look too bad...

    Just completed my Bandai 1/12 General Grievous model kit. Too many pics to post so here is the direct link to my review.

    Oh man, that's a good question! You mean the 6 inch figure? Tbh I never tried it for the following reasons:

    1. His left hand isn't sculpted to stimulate a double handed pose.

    2. In my head, Vader is so bad ass that he's only uses a hand to wield his saber.

    Give me time to dig out my figure to give you a more definitive answer, dude.

    *just took out the figure and yes, the 40th anniversary Vader can hold the saber with both hands but I used the standard vanilla pose - where he's using both hands to hold the saber in front of him.

    Depends how you read it. $50 together isn't bad. $50 each...well, Revan will sell for that but Sabine is as dead as the rest of the wave.

    Sabine won't sell for $50 but you can probably get full retail for her. I had to get mine off amazon and never saw her below $22. Never saw her in stores.
