    It occured to me after I saw you this morning that my wave 5 case from BBTS included both a McVader and a Starkiller which was the big selling point for me getting the whole case. So it would seem that there should have been SK's in that assortment. Hmm...maybe they didn't make it to the floor.

    Los Feliz TRU -- went kinda late (10:45AM) expecting to pick over the skeleton of what was left behind. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised to see a gang o' Wave 5 -- Pre-Grievous, Malak, Yoda & Kybuck, shirtless Anakin, Roron, etc (minus any McAnything). As I grabbed the lone Hermi, another collector showed up to grab most of the good stuff (said he was buying them in lieu of an EE shipment). Some were still on the pegs after he left.

    I stashed a Malak and 3PO & S. Crumb -- hit me up if you want 'em.

    But there is no wave 9!!! Wave 8 has been confirmed in Phoenix and SD, according to RS. And the boxes DO say Wave 8.

    someone who seems to know about these things told me the Starkiller was shortpacked and does not appear in every wave 5 case. When I found wave 7, i thought it was curious there was a ton of wave 7 and some wave 5, including Revan and Malak, and a few McVaders, but no Starkillers.

    So there could be something to it.

    Got a lot of boxes delivered to me today at work. My HTS orders all arrived safely. I got several McSnowies, McStarkillers, & McStormies (UGHs). There were several SL Army Builders too. In addition were 2 Battlefront packs...both the Clone version. Looks like I've got a lot of opening to do tonight!!!

    Transformers Deluxe were well-stocked, also. Lots of BumbleBee - either 1977 or 2008.
    I'm not sure if there are wave 5 revision cases but in the one that I got in the mail, there was 1 Starkiller, 1 McVader.

    The first case of Wave 5 I got from NFC was the same as yours. The next case of Wave 5 I received from EE, only had 1 Starkiller and no McVader.

    That's true, the Wave 5 Revision 2 case has no McQuarrie anything in it, instead they include the Rebel Honor Guard and Galactic Marine because Hasbro's totally insane - gotta keep them pegwarmers flowing!

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Wave 8 Found

    Scored Wave 8 at Walmart earlier today:

    1x McQuarrie Rebel Trooper
    2x Fireside Padme
    2x Jango w/Poncho
    2x Clone Training Gear
    2x Destroyer Droid
    2x Wolfie

    Looks like each store is only getting one case of Wave 8, so supply might be short for a little while. There was a Stormtrooper packed in the case I found ... wish Hasbro would've put a second McRebel in there instead.
