Nice! I only have a ticket for Friday but I might try to go again on Saturday, gonna play it by ear. There is definitely not enough time to do everything I want...kinda wanted to check Thursday's panels too. Next time I might have to do the 4 days.

Btw, I been trying to read up as much as I can on the best times for arrival as I definitely want to catch The Last Jedi panel on Friday. So I been reading about lines starting at 8pm on Thursday night (before they lock the building at midnight and reopen at 5am) and I might just pull that off with this being my first time and everything lol...just wondering if anyone knows what would be the best time to lineup for the Hasbro booth? Doesn't seem like I'll even have a chance with the Funko exclusives...but would be nice to be able to score those as well somehow.

No idea about the times, 1st celebration too.

Has the bodhi wave been found anwhere in FL?

finding that wave for retail is looking more and more hopeless.

Yes, a couple guys here in FL found them at Walmart little while ago...granted it wasn't in huge numbers or anything. I want that final wave to hit already.

Nice. Damn, I think I walked around you guys more than once. Had a really good time despite the lines and not being able to grab any pops. Will definitely like to make the next one.

Thx, we'll definately go again the next time it's in Orlando.

If anyone finds the bodhi wave, i'm looking to trade a 6" Revan for Bodhi, Jyn in disguise and Thrawn.

Found wave 2 in fort Myers TRU today, picked up a Stromtrooper, jawa and C3PO. Someone had already grabbed chewy and the Tusken raider. Funny that I never saw wave one though.

Checked 2 more and found bs 3.75 rose but none of the others. This happened before and a week or so later the rest of the wave appeared.

on a side note I guess wm took all the old bs 3.75 figures that were not sold at $5.00 clearance and returned them to regular price? Wtf?

Found a bs 3.75 elite guard at another walmart. Also saw the bs 6" speeder sets marked down to $45. Thought about getting the rey but decided to pass.

So many people in other states finding those for as low as $20! Hope we see some of that clearance action here.

Has anyone found either the Hasbro Rey Force FX lightsaber (not the Disney version) or the Spin Master Hero BB-8 yet? I've been searching at different Wal-Marts and a few TRU stores and can't find them!
