40AC Wave 2 Hitting GameStop

From reader “Chad”

Found mine wave 2 at Gamestop today. I got off work early and headed to TRU, nada. Target same thing. The Gamestop is in the same shopping center as Target and decided to go over there. The was a UPS truck in front of the store and when I walked in the manager of the store who I know said they were expecting wave 2 of the 40th Anniversary figures. Sure enough the UPS guy came in and what was on the cart? A box of wave 2 40th figures. The manager opened the box and I got the Jawa, DS Commander, Sand People and Stormtrooper. I called a buddy of mine and he got the rest of them. You may want to check Gamestop if you are having trouble find them.

Star Wars Girl Power

Reports are coming in that some retailers, such as Target are receiving solid cases of the 6″ 40th Anniversary Princess Leia figure, such as the image above provided by forum member dubsack.  This also appears to be happening at some Toys”R”us stores.

Now, we’re not opposed to this great figure of our favorite princess being in good supply, but solid cases of anything in this scale at mass retail seems like it could cause problems, unless we’re talking Stormtroopers or Royal Guards (even that would be risky).
