I saw that alliancecollectibles.com gets their stock of the Tarkin wave on 5/24, next Tuesday. Does this mean that they'll be shipped out then by Hasbro?

I hope so. The quicker I get this pain & suffering over (56), the quicker I can start to recover. That is until Hasbro decides to announce more figures.

#45 Tarkin
#46 Ask Aak
#47 Mon Calamari

That is the Tarkin wave to the best of my knowlege. Anakin Mustafar will be in the next wave as will the cleaner version of R2-D2 and Commander Bacara.

You mean Wave 5 on that last one, right?

I will probably buy Tarkin, but that's it for Wave IV. His appearance in the movie was retarded and uneeded, but it'll be nice to have another version of the character nonetheless. From pics he basically looks the same as he does in ANH...

His hair and uniform are darker on the new figure. Other than that, it appears the differences are negligable.

I do not understand Hasbro's logic at times. Why pack 37 & 39, when 38 is the figure that is the hardest to find out of that wave?

Yeah, it wouldn't suprise me to see Hasbro re-release this one at some point with a repaint of the uniform and hair as their "OT Tarkin".

The release of the movie has kids finally clearing the pegs of all of those first few waves, so there is plenty of room now for this wave and the next. I want Tarkin & Commander Baccarra (Multiples) for sure. The Senators all look really good, but I have to draw the line somewhere and this is where. ;)

Has anyone noticed that #38 AT-TE Gunner Clone is difficult to locate. I already have 2 for my collection but I ran into 3 people at TRU, Target, and WM looking for the same figure. I don't know why this hard to find does anyone have an idea - like maybe there are 1 per case? Not sure.

There are assortments out there that have 2 per case as I have seen them but neglected to make note of the revision number. They are out there though. They have also been showing up more frequently. There was actually a day or two where I saw 20+ Gunners clogging the pegs.

I guess that all the stores here are out. I spent alll day yesterday going to 11 different WM and Targets. All had 41-44 but nothing higher and zero #38. Maybe it will be like the TC-13 droid from TPM and just difficult to find.

Wow, for all the time/gasoline you spent, you could have just ordered these online, or through ebay.

Yeah but that takes all the fun out of finding the figures on the shelf for $5 instead of 10-15 $$.

I think the problem with finding #38 is pretty easy to identify. Dark Helmet gave us the answer. He purchased 2. I want 2. Alot of army builders want more than 2. The problem with that is that he is the ONLY army builder in the wave of figures that he came with. And the case assortment that I saw posted for the Tarkin wave, doesn't even have him in it (but it does have Vader's Medical Droid & Polis Massan, which I have no problems locating).
