Empire Strikes Back Wave 2.0 Found


Most of us are either just getting caught up from a deluge of backlogged Legacy product, or we haven't even found some of the last 4 or 5 waves (Rum Sleg, you suck). No rest for the weary though, as the new Legacy Collection Empire Strikes Back wave (Wave 12) is being found around the country, like our friend JACK found in Illinois. Early word is Wal-Mart is the place these are being spotted, for now, so happy hunting!

UPDATE: Republic Commando Opinions


In a recent Jedi Defender Q&A with Hasbro, they were fishing for opinions on whether collectors were interested in seeing Delta Squad Clone Commandoes redone using the new (more articulated) Evolutions Clone Commando sculpt, or whether fans were more interested in getting unmade Clone Commandoes using it. We'll be taking our member's voices to Hasbro directly with a Vote in Our Forums.

UPDATE: The voting ends Thursday, so vote soon to make your voice heard!
