I found General Grievous and Wookie Warrior at the Rancho Cucamonga Wal-Mart.

The quality of these figures is pretty good, especially the Wookie Warrrior. Good articualtion and accessories. Much better than the AOTC sneak peak figures. And, the packaging looks better in person, much better. It really stands out. And, the bubble stacks and are not easily damaged. Darth Vader's head is the area that can be most easily damaged.

Kidhuman I was going to post this in the Just Found Thread but I put it here to discuss the Sneak Peak figures as other collectors found them and what they thought of them.

How many points of articulation does Grievous have & where are they Plo?

Grievous has 10. The Wookie Warrior has 14.

Grievous articulation is in his mid-chest, neck, arms, elbows, legs, and knees. In other words he has pretty standard articualtion. He is about on the same quality level of most Saga '04 figures. He also has a cape which the Basic one wont, a gun, and a lightsaber.

The Wookie Warrior has articulation in his neck, mid-chest, lower-chest, arms, elbows, wrists, legs, and knees. This figure is almost on VOTC quality level but not quite there. He also comes with a cool gun, and some armor.

I will also note that none of these figures have a base. And, I forgot to mention that these cards CANNOT fit in a Star Case.

My local Wal-Mart started stocking the ROTS Sneak Preview figures tonight (1-23). I picked up General Grievous, Tion Medon and Wookie Warrior, but passed on R4-G9 because the cards were in miserable condition. There were at least 4 more unopened cases nearby, so I thought I'd wait on the astro droid. R4-G9 and Medon were each packed 3 to a case and the other 2 filled the rest of the case. I don't know if that is the only case assortment or not.
The figures are all pretty cool, but I don't care for the packaging.

Found all 4 Sneak Preview figures at my local TRU (Midland, TX) of all places this past Sunday(1-23) at noon when the store opened. A guy that i know who works there told me the day before to come back on Sunday when the store opened, for he saw there were new SW figures available. I picked up 2 of each new figure!

Last night (1-24) another friend of mine at a Wal-Mart in Odessa, TX called me up and told me to come down to check out the new SW Sneak Preview figures (sorry to say there were no Anakin Jedi Starfighters or Wookiee Water Blasters on the pallet). I felt bad, esp because he knew i had been searching for the 4 new ROTS figures, but i told him i already picked those 4 up at TRU on Sunday. I at least got him to empty out a display case for me and to take home! I also noticed that Wal-Mart boxes only had Hasbro marked on them for the 4 ROTS figures, and in a pinkish or purplish writting was marked, "DO NOT OPEN UNTIL FEB. 1" My friend knew those had to be the new SW figures, even when another employee asked him if he was sure of this. He was right. He had pulled out all 5 cases of new ROTS figures, each case had 20 figures inside. These are to be put on an end-cap by Feb. 1 at each Wal-Mart.
So good luck all you guys out there and happy hunting!
