Toon ones?? You lost me. Is there a wave I don't even know about? The last character cars I've found are the ones with action features.
I think he means the ones from the Resistance cartoon. 3 ships were released; Fireball, Blue Ace, and Green Ace. I think these are the correct names...🤔

I was finally able to track down an AT-ST Raider at a local Target. Probably the only time I will ever see it. Passed on everything else. The amount of repacks in this wave is really ridiculous. At least give us some repaints like the A-wing if they are going to repack existing castings.
Better yet, how about repacks of stuff that hasn't been repacked to death. Hovertank, Grievous' Wheelbike, Yoda's Starfighter, the Resistance fighters, etc.

Maddie J from the Hot Wheels Star Wars Ships FB page found wave 2 on the pegs near Bellingham, WA, which is ironically very close to our border, north of which is a frickin' desert for new ships. Harrumph.

Anyhoo, here are pics of 'em:

Do you know what store chain they found them at? Walmart or Target?

I like the Y-Wing, looks almost conceptual. Shame they went with the bright silver for the Razor, it appeared darker in the footage...at least its a new sculpt though. I hope they do a beast w/ rider, because I'd love to see a Blurrg from the Mandalorian.

I stopped by a Target today, and they reset a couple pegs for HW ships, so I picked up the new releases - the AT-ST is even cooler in person, when it comes to repaints, this one is up there. The A-Wing and Treadspeeder are a bit more boring - since the line is so repack heavy, it really doesn't feel worth the $5 pricepoint anymore, especially compared to the concept wave(s), which were far more interesting and used new tooling. Hope they put in enough effort to maintain interest.

Ah.. ok. Yeah I've got those ships, I thought we were talking about character cars however, of which I haven't found any in forever. Still looking for the new ones from Ep9.

Same here. Why are these past and recent cars so hard to find? Such as R2-Q5, Chewbacca and Porg, Porg, R5-D4, and now DIO, Kylo repaired helmet, Rey maybe (I can't tell if its just a repackage yet). and who knows what else.
Anyone seen a definitive list of just character cars specifically?

DEFINITE +1 to the request for a listing somewhere.. I don't even know what's out there to start looking for it. Once the Black logo cards came out after the Solo movie cards, I had a very difficult time finding anything. I've been trying to keep a running tally on releases, but I have NO idea how correct it is:

Ones with dashes in preceding them are ones I've found.. No dash means I still need it.

The 2nd TROS wave is showing up at Best Buy in the US. Found Razor Crest and Poe's orange X-wing at a store in Dublin, CA today and another Razor Crest at a different location but left it behind for another collector to find. :D

Thanks for the list..too many repacks for my taste.

Did you ever see the Rogue one Character car Director Krenic? I've never seen it aside from ebay and wayyyyy! over priced!

Scalpers are so frustrating.

Looks like our wants are about the same. Nice work getting Tie Fighter pilot and Palpatine on a single card, those plus Chewie and Porg have all alluded me.

The only way I ever saw Krennic were listings on eBay for a 2-pack with that one and a Jyn Erso in it. I'm not sure if there was anything different about the Erso car either, it might be identical to the single-packed one. I remember seeing the 2-pack with Hera Syndulla and Chopper around the same time, but BOTH were hugely expensive, so I never bothered getting either one.. I now regret that decision. I figured I'd see them at stores around me sooner or later, and they NEVER came to stores around me.

In the last wave of the Carships before they combined that assortment with the Character cars for the Solo movie, Krennics Imperial shuttle car was difficult to find too, but I DO have 1 if my listing is correct. The number on that one is FGX72. Obi-Wan's Jedi Fighter car (FBX15) was in the last wave with it as well.

:mad: Welp, I didn't even know about those ones. I'm going to just give up on this crap soon. I try harder than anyone should ever have to try to complete my collections and I'm just sick of it.

Also, this forum needs a separate thread for:
Starships
Carships
Character Cars
Battle Rollers (which are probably now defunct, but still)
...and any other sub-line I missed

I found the new Rey Car at my area Walmart. The associate couldn't find any others in stock but said a new shipment is expected for the 4th of Nov.

I visited 6 more Targets and Walmarts and only found one more Rey and a new Kylo Helmet Car. I left the Rey but still no D-O sighting.

Ive been out of the country since these started hitting. Looks like I could find them at either Target or Wal-Mart now. Does anyone have the searchable DPCI/SKU's for these assortments?

I went to Target and instantly found 4 of the first 6. I'm not sure what wave I found but got AT-ST, A, X, and Y wings. Did not see the bike or the Mando ship.

Only things left at my target are the numerous repacks. I’m guessing they will be hanging around for a while. No wonder Target temporarily stopped carrying this line!

Found the First Order AT-ST with BB-8 today at Target. No sign of the Y-wing wave yet. I'm just after the orange X-wing and the Y-wing.

Finally, FINALLY! Able to find all the new starships at Target. Razor Crest gets my vote for the coolest new ship. Really happy to pay MSRP (and not have to pay 2 to 3 times over MSRP!) for these ships.

Found "wave 2" last night at a Target.
Razor Crest was still in the backroom; I had them go look for me since the pegs were full and the Y-wing / Orange X-Wing were both there.

... is the Falcon different for RotS? Like, is the dish different than all previous or anything? I haven't gone to look and compare yet but I grabbed one just in case, once I noticed on here that it has a new model number.
