The Sabine with the black on the helmet was the original and had a deco error (often in promo images), and was quickly corrected from what I've seen. Perhaps that retailer received one of the initial cases before the factory updated it?

Multiple cases with the original "black" deco shipped out from multiple online retailers. So, in essence it is a variant/running change.

HTS has the Hera wave for preorder, and the family2015 code is still active!

Unfortunately it is out of stock. Yeah, HTS can't get their act together.

So far I've found (though not necessarily bought) every single Rebels Mission Series 2-pack that's been released at brick-and-mortar except for two: Sabine/Stormtrooper and Wicket/Biker Scout. The first one I understand because of who's in the package, but I'm a little surprised that the Wicket and Biker Scout are so elusive right now, at least here in my own area.

I don't count any of the Wave 3 sets because right now the only people who seem to have them ordered them online and they're not yet officially "out" and in stores. I'm really looking forward to the Hoth Luke/Hoth Han set and the one with Yoda and R2-D2. For simple 5-POA sculpts those look pretty fantastic, especially the Hoth 2-pack.

I've only seen the Sabine pack and the Wookies pack. None of the others. But I consider myself lucky to have found Sabine :D

She's definitely the hardest one in all of Wave 2 to track down!

I have seen the Sabine/stormtrooper pack a few times mainly at Target. Walmart anymore is a joke in my area. It looks to me like they either are scared of Star Wars or detest it. No MS packs. They might get in a few of the wave 1 singles. I have yet to see the black Series 6 inch Han Stormtrooper and Bossk. My area is that bad at getting stuff in.

My Walmarts just got Wave 1 of Mission Series with Zeb, Boba Fett and Vader but that's been it.

After reading the latest Mission Series reviews over at JTA I'm getting more excited about finding the new Hoth Luke and Han set and the Yoda and R2-D2 when they finally start to hit brick-and-mortar retail.

Scored the following today at my local TRU (Roanoke, Virginia) using their brand new 2-for-$15 sale on all Mission Series figures:

1 x Hoth Luke/Hoth Han
1 x R2-D2/Yoda
1 x Stormtrooper Commander/Hera
1 x Princess Leia/Luke in Stormtrooper Disguise

Nice score.

Figures they'd have a sale like that right after I bought a couple sets. I'm not one for price adjustments though.

:wink:

I had no idea the sale was even going on. Unless the collecting websites alert me to sales and markdown events I don't know most of them exist until I walk into the store, and I'm not in the habit of checking prices on the TRU webpage.

I ordered the new MS wave on HTS, but that's a great sale. During the TRU sale, you can get a 2-pack cheaper than buying a single Legends figure. Their sales make their regular prices look ridiculous sitting next to each other, lol.
