*as rumored/leaked by Jedi Temple Archives many moons ago.
New details have surfaced via Facebook for the 6″ Black Series Guardians of Evil 4pk coming to GameStop. First off, it does not appear to be limited to GameStop as it appears in B&N’s system, Second, the set consists of guards from various eras of the saga (Prequel, Original Trilogy, Legends, and Sequel Trilogy), not just The Last Jedi.
UPDATE: The exclusivity of this items is still unclear. For now, consider it exclusive to GameStop. (If there were only a company that could shed some clarity on who is getting what and when in the coming days?)
GameStop is now taking orders for the shared exclusive POP! Holographic Princess Leia & R2-D2 set.
Thanks to MTFBWY for the heads-up.

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.
