It pains me to say it, but it's a pass from me. Only the head is new. I'd much have preferred the Snowspeeder version. Had it been that one I'd have bought 2 for a Luke headswap.

My deciding factor will be how the actor's likeness turns out on the final product. For instance, General Veers wasn't necessarily high on my want list but that face sculpt and the photo real painting was incredible so I had to buy it.

Instant purchase for me. Personally I could do without the blaster as we never saw Wedge use one. I'd be ok with the helmet as the only accessory but no biggie.

Anyone got a SKU yet by any chance?

I'll get him eventually, I suppose, but only if it's easy/cheap.

Not the least bit excited about this one.

Even though a new body would have been nice, I'll pick him up. Always been a fan of Wedge.

Man, look at the paint on those shoulders and elbows. Brutal.

Oh, and the likeness actually looks pretty good in that pic above! Hair looks a little off, but the face looks great! They nailed the eyebrows, which are quite distinctive.

I won't go out of my way to get this figure (simply because I don't really collect many good guy figures); but if I came across one in the wild I'd likely grab it.

Put this head on Solo movie Han body and you would have a cool looking out of pilot gear Wedge.

I said earlier, the deciding factor for me would be how the head sculpt and face paint looks in hand. I found it today at Target and it looks incredible so I bought it.

Wedge is listed on target.com now but is "sold out." Was he ever actually live for sale or is he a placeholder for when they list him? Did anyone manage to buy him from target.com?

Got Wedge today! A nearby Gamestop got the newest wave in earlier today. My favorite character, so happy to have him.

Wedge is my favorite character too! Found him at Target today. The likeness with the helmet off is ok, but as good as some of the other recent figures. But, with the helmet on he looks pretty great.

I know it's a pipe dream, but I would love to get Janson, Hobbie, and Tycho to finish out the big 4 from the X-wing books.

That'd make a killer multi-pack, like the Guardians of Evil one from a couple years ago.

Seeing that pic of Luke Yavin next to Wedge....kinda reminded me of Dukes of Hazzard, when Coy and Vance took over in the series. :Dslab-cropped-jouster-3747-VanceCoyDuke.jpg

Just got back from picking Wedge up at one of my area stores. Really glad to have him in hand. Now I can cancel the preorder I had for him.

Picked up Wedge at Gamestop. Somehow, I missed the 3.75" ones every time, and I just wasn't interested enough in X-wing Luke to pick him up, so Wedge is nice and new to me. The X-wing novels were pretty important to me when I was younger, so it's really cool to have the primary character from them in figure form (and I do agree that it'd be lovely to get the other three someday).

And it's just the right price since so much of it is rehash Luke; I'd not like to pay the full $20 ;)

Ok, how do I get mine price-adjusted to the new cost? I haven't even received it yet from ordering Sunday; surely I can get the new price?

You want it adjusted to the current price of $29.95 😜 Seriously, though, WM's pricing algorithm is seriously flawed. The MSRP in $19.99 for Wedge, yet they're selling it for $10 higher. They're acting like a crummy third-party seller on their own website. 😖

I've been told on two separate occasions by reps on chat that they can't do price adjustments on website orders, which I know is bogus as I've done it once before and know others have done it as well. But considering it isn't that price anymore I think your chances, obstinate reps aside, are probably 0.

LOL I guess I’ll just accept the reduced price I got it for!

Next time something like this happens, you can do one of two things. Order another at the lower price, then try to cancel the higher price item, or just wait for them both to come in, and return the more expensive one.
