Delivered today: Wave 3 of the 3.75" figures from Entertainment Earth, including Rebels Thrawn with the correctly colored chest badge (blue, red, and yellow).

received mine shipment on Saturday with the incorrect rank insignia. still a great figure overall though. not a fan of his firing rocket launcher thing . If I find him in the wild with the correct rank insignia I might pick him up just for the variation .

As i sit here looking at this page, I feel it would have been great if he had had a Cameo in R1. IMO, for the small insignificant role Saw played. Thrawn could have been in one of the meetings with Krennic and Tarkin.

I was openly expecting to see some kind of cameo among the Imperial officers, such as Thrawn or Kallus, or even Veers or Motti or something. With such a large gathering it seemed likely. Thrawn or Kallus would've fit into the Rebels referencing though.

Haven't seen Thrawn yet in Connecticut, although I believe his wave is shipping here. I must be just missing him. Anybody in New England and/or the Northeast seeing Thrawn yet?

Found him in Eastern Kentucky. Incorrect rank version, but I wasn't waiting around to maybe find him again. Great figure.

Finally got around to opening him. Cool figure. I wish they'd make more Imp officers.

Found this wave in Northern AZ today, super impressed by this figure. The proportions aren't freakishly skinny like some other Rebels characters and he looks decent with other Imperials because he isn't meant to look human. Has trouble standing but definitely the best Rebels and maybe recent Hasbro 5POA figure.

Found in Greenwood, IN this morning (incorrect paint only though). I still like the EU POTF2 one a little more until I find the SA comic pack figure at a reasonable price, but it's a great looking figure overall.

I found him yesterday... I think the corrected version with the yellow in his chest plate? It's nice figure but it has some paint markings on the white suit. Sadly it was the only one this store had so I had to buy it. I'm hoping I can Goof Off the black markings.

Not sure if I'm ever going to find Grand Admiral Smurf. Just not much restocking around here.

This figure would've been the one time that i would be fine with something other than a neutral expression on his face. Curious how he would've looked smiling/smirking as he appears on his card.

I found him this morning at one of our Walmarts. Nice figure though I am a bit put off by the lack of articulation with the legs. Mainly he is going to be left in package.

Still have not seen him or any evidence of his wave. The WM and Target near me are still pegged solid with the RO/Leia wave. Heck, there is even a WM near by that relocated stores and when it did, they restocked the pegs. At least they were the first to get additional Phasma wave BS stuff. I went there the other day and they had about 10 cases of RO/Leia wave figures on the pegs and stacked on the shelf above. Must have been 90 RO figures there. All of the same wave. I searched through all of them. Nothing, nodda, no Thrawn wave figures. Plus now that there are 90 figures of a wave that has gone cold, I know that store is dead to me until the next movie comes out.

Only found the full Thrawn wave once. A lot of Walmart stores in my area are either full of wave 2(Churrit/Rebels Leia) or barely anything at all and its after the DVD release of Rogue one. Wow, fase advertising at its best.

Yeah tonight I FINALLY found part of the wave. The only thing is they just had 5 Ground Crew Jyns left!

I went to Walmart this morning and caught the Toy Dept Manager AND the Hasbro Rep together in the aisle handling SW toys. The rep was relocating several 6" BS Zuvio figures. They just won't go away. I spoke to them briefly and told them that these peg warmers are holding up new merchandise. I pointed out that the Zuvio figures have been there since Sep 2015 and are never ever going to sell and that they'd make more money if they just threw them in the trash and stocked new stuff. They both conveyed the "there is nothing we can do" hopeless apathy. The Dept mgr said that he has to buy in cases and that's why there is always soo much of the bad figures. I advised him to buy less and he would end up selling more. He said that they have people still at the doors at 6am to seek out new figures.

Demand is still there, just a supply end that is screwed up. It will never change.

I saw a couple of this guy at Kroger earlier today. I'd have to go back to pick them up, but does anyone have any 3.75" Black Series Cassians and/or Shoretroopers pegwarming at their local Walmarts? I'd love to do a one for one trade for either, though I'd actually prefer Cassian. As far as I can tell, that wave never hit North Dallas and the surrounding area.

It sounds bad, but I have similar problems, although I'm looking towards the TBS 3 3/4" more, but now that I have a new job, I'm debating buying up some of the pegwarmers to donate during the holidays. Yeah, I don't know if a kid is going to appreciate Zuvio for Christmas, but if I do some good and clear out my local stores at the same time, I don't see a problem.

At least your area still has a Hasbro rep. I saw one in my area a long time ago, and I don't think they have ever been back.

Anyone have access to one of these? Just finished the novel and love how this figure turned out.

Been searching all my local stores but Walmart hasn't stocked anything since Rebels Leia and both Target and TRU are stuffed with figures thst aren't moving.

I haven't. Was hoping it would sneakily show up one day, like those waves often do. but no luck.

Was also hoping that HTS would have gotten this wave in, but another no.

I have not see the whole wave for a while. Really starting to think that Disney does this on purpose. I know they did with the Frozen stuff. I remember kids not being able to find a lot of the stuff from that movie.

Oddly enough, this did sneakily show up yesterday on Walmart's website, and vanished within 5 minutes. They limited sales to one per person, which was good, but they vanished quickly. They clearly cant meet the demand for waves 3 and 4.

Rare like Pope poodoo. Upset that he was put in a wave that seems to be significantly less produced and since he is showing up in Rebels this fall i don't get the scarcity . He should be plastering the walls at retail.
