Yeah, I'm with you. If I run across a couple of Troopers, I'll get them to keep my ST/Clone sealed packaging focus intact. Other than that, I already have everything else.If they released these at $6 I’d buy every last one of those stormtroopers. But I completely agree with Darth_Sidious, a failed execution of a decent concept.
Ive heard no, they won’t have the chips in them.Just out of curiosity do these figures work with the Force Link thing?
I couldn’t agree more.Maybe the stormtrooper. I hope they end up on clearance and I’ll troop build him. Other than that, waste of plastic. You can get that r2 for $4, Luke was being clearances at Target for $7.48 with 2 other figures , that Leia is flooding Target and Walmart at $8. No need for these.
Its odd they wouldn't include the Force Link tech with these figures, considering how highly it was ranked among boys tech toys not too long ago. That consumer report showed the basic line was doing well, and kids that play with action figures enjoy that technology included with the figures. Likewise, all of waves 1 & 2 previously had the chips, save for Han. A missed opportunity not to include more dialogue from the OT, as the shorts do.Ive heard no, they won’t have the chips in them.
Id buy every stormtrooper I could find at $6 a pop. Great for an emperor’s arrival scene. I’ll see what happens after the holidays, if the price is right I’ll spring for them then. I’m interested in the Vader as well.
Han Bespin is also on my list of wants.
Drop the price and ill bite, but not before then.
There are only 4 figures in the first wave. So you saw them all. Wave 2 the next four next year, just in time....hmmm....what stockings are we stuffing in spring?I picked up the Luke, Vader and R2 for my son. passed on Chewie and didn't see the rest of the wave. They rang up at 8.99 per figure at my local Walmart and were in the "Holiday Section" instead of the toy aisles. I'm guessing these are thought to be "Stocking Stuffers"
Get out of here with facts. We're trying to be mad about products that aren't for us and aren't stocked in the toy aisles.I picked up the Luke, Vader and R2 for my son. passed on Chewie and didn't see the rest of the wave.

I hear ya on that lol. It's been pretty sparse in my area for awhile. Any more I usually have a couple of items I need to pick up when I go toy shopping to make it worth the trip.lol
Be nice to find the stuff I'm looking for in the Toy aisle! I get cross merchandising and all, but I'm one of those that don't meander through the store looking for everything. How am I to know to look in Holiday section for normal stuff? In fact If I cannot find an item in the actual dept. it belongs, I leave empty handed.
Its the holiday shopping season, so I'm not surprised to see them selling, but not at such a quick rate. How many were in the bin display? What does puzzle me is how some of these figures are on the pegs for a cheaper price - I'm guessing the stocking stuffer packaging is luring people in? I dunno, if I were buying these for a kid, I'd go to Five Below, and get two figures for $8 rather than one and a comic for $10. Maybe some consumers just aren't as savvy as collectors.My Walmart is already SOLD OUT of Wave 1. They had a ton of these on Monday night of this week and now the bin is empty. I asked the toy department manager if they had any more in the back and he said nope everything is gone.
I'm kinda shocked that Hasbro didn't just double up on the toys and release both Wave 1 & 2 together.
If they wanted something a little kid thought was cool they probably wouldn't by a Star Wars figure.or maybe a bunch of people wanted a cool stocking stuffer for a 5 year old kid in their life.
