Great pics and thanks a lot for posting them.  I'm glad to see those deleted scenes figures carded.  I'm glad to see Lando come with all the accessories to make him a Palace/Skiff Lando as well.

Holy smokes the deleted scene figures look awesome.  Thanks for posting.  I love the vintage card backs and really hope Hasbro doesn't move away from this line ever.

An interesting wave no doubt & I certainly am excited to get those figures, usually i don't get the whole wave if I don't like all the figures but this wave is definitely one i'll consider picking up! thanks for sharing as always you've outdone yourself Spice :)

I'll take all of them, especially Luke with the Tatooine tunic. Just saw a pic of him on GH and his wrists are all bulbous. They look jacked up! Leia's the same. Lando, Whas Craken and Fish pilot definitely want.

I don't expect to find this wave in central Iowa any time soon and especially at the clearance prices, so I ordered them from Brian's Toys

they were delivered today

there is all kinds of confusion at the ww with the 4.00 vintage figure price fiasco... I went to one store and they said the price was for figures that are no longer there (the pegs were full of vintage all at 8.96)... so I did not buy there.. but another store did honor the price by filling the pegs with the red 4.00 sticker and then saying they are not on clearance.. but was willing to compromise... 4 figs at 4.00 bucks is better than none..

it depends on the store and the managers that would need to make that call.. some are good - some are clueless

Usually WW honors the prices they put on the floor, if the kiosks on the end indicate a price and they are labeled as such they honor it, it's not like it's an isolated incident, a lot of stores have done this.

Stopped at my local Walmart this morning and found the deleted wave there and more of the other figures. They weren't marked on the shelf and price scanner didn't read it. So went to clearence, found a few last year figure for $4 and took one. With my Craken and Rebel Pilot to cash out. Got them all for $4 each when the new figures couldn't ring up.  I probably could have the others for $4 too, but only wanted craken and pilot.

I've felt terrible for the past 2-3 days so I've not bothered looking for these because I know if I WAS lucky enough to find the Sandstorm, they'd be full price.  ::)

That's what I've been finding, I never saw 4 dollars.  IN fact Vintage Wave I is back on the pegs at full price, I guess someone figured out they shouldn't really be there.  Admiral Ackbar and a B-Wing Pilot was all that was on clearance at my local store.  I went to another location near Milwaukee and RATS!  ONE Ratts Tyrell and NOTHING else, and of course he rang up $8.96.

I cleaned my local Walmart out. I left two Annie Darth Vaders on the pegs and took home 14 figures. I added the 5 other figs I bought for $4 the other day.

Not bad 19 figs for $80.

I haven't seen this wave at all yet, it looks like we're going back to 2011 with crappy distribution..... I hope I'm wrong but I hate the way figs were so hard to get last year to the point where sometimes I had to rely on ebay for figs & i don't like to get new figs on ebay, only figures that were released a few years back that I missed out on or something like that.

I saw these figs once & luckily grabbed a set, but I have NOT seen since?!

I saw the wave once and got it except for the missing mon cal pilot, I saw him twice and got him and have not seen a sign of this wave since. I wonder if this wave will be a short run or if it is still stuck in a warehouse somewhere

My Target here hasn't put anything out "new" in what seems like 2 years...they still have the Geonosis 2 packs on the shelf for full price!  Realistically though, they did put out the Phantom Menace wave at the beginning of this year, but they are still sitting there waiting to be clearanced...and the only reason I think they put the EPI items out was because they had to a large display to fill.  I usually have to drive to an out of the way Walmart to pick up anything new.  I did pick up a Sandstorm Lando finally, but that was off of ebay.  I hate having to resort to ebay, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!

Yeah eBay maybe over priced but it can sure help fill in the gaps when retail fails to give new products

I finally saw this wave at Walmt again & they were destroyed? Cards bent in 4-5 places accordian style with plastic bubbles crushed?!?
Paying $1 would be too much for them & they were full price?!?

The crushed Sandstorm wave is just taking up space & I asked Walmt to "take them off shelf" & they did? :o
I was able to get about 12 figs OFF shelf that were extremely damaged in crushed case. Hopefully? I'll see something new in their place?

Early this morning I went to my local Walmart & they stocked even more VC Phantom Menace figures!!!!! Seriously I mean this is beyond ridiculous & it was the only new case they had. How long before we see more of the deleted scenes as well as wave 3???

If I see anymore of this wave? I'll grab them for anyone. Please let me know what to look for.
I am currently searching for wave 3? & will gladly pick up any fig troopers need.

I saw a few of these last Friday on my shopping spree. Broke down and bought the 3 I didn't get before. Now have a complete set and 1 extra General Cracken for a opener.
If anybody want more of this set, let me know because I am going scalping on Thursday to find some new SW items to buy.

I found a good amount of these Deleted scene figures at Downtown Disney yesterday. They had them in like 3 different stores and I was told by a stock clerk that they also have even more at the Tatooine Traders store next to Star Tours inside Hollywood Studious. Only problem is that they were worth $14.95 so unless your desperate for them they weren't what you would call cheap. But I'm sure they've flown off the pegs since they are hard to find!
